The Sea of Vulnerability

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , , , , , on November 1, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

Dr. Fred Luskin contends that we exist in an absolute sea of vulnerability – we have no control over most of what is truly important to us, like love. So, we need to have compassion for how hard it is to be a human being who can be hurt in so many ways. Dr. Luskin, Director of Forgiveness Projects at Stanford University, advises us not to make enemies of people that pierce our vulnerability. He likens lack of forgiveness to a solar eclipse: something gets in the way of the sun during an eclipse, and we make believe the sun is gone. Forgiveness is moving away from the eclipse and seeing the sun again – nothing changed except our perception. –

The Sun Goes Strangely Quiet‏

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , , , , , on September 14, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

ALL QUIET ALERT: 

With the Sun’s disk almost completely devoid of sunspots, solar flare activity has come to a halt. Measurements by NOAA’s GOES 15 satellite show that the sun’s global x-ray emission, a key metric of solar activity, has flatlined:

The quiet is unlikely to break this weekend. NOAA forecasters estimate a scant 1% chance of M- or X-class solar flares during the next 24-48 hours.

The quiet spell is a bit strange because 2013 is supposed to be a year of solar maximum, with lots of flares and sunspots. Supporting this view are data from NASA-supported observatories which show that the sun’s magnetic field is poised to flip–a long-held sign that Solar Max has arrived. Nevertheless, solar activity is low.
One possible explanation is that

Solar Max is double-peaked and we are in the valley between peaks. If so, solar activity could surge again in late 2013-2014. No one can say for sure, though. Researchers have been studying sunspots for more than 400 years, and we still cannot predict the behavior of the solar cycle. Continued quiet or stormy space weather? Both are possible in the weeks and months ahead.

South Africa in pole position for magnetic shift

Cape TownEarth’s magnetic field is undergoing significant shifts, and South Africa has front row seats to observe the changes.

Satellites and magnetic observatories have recorded stirrings in the magnetic field – some areas weakening, some strengthening – which suggest that our planet is headed for a reversal of its magnetic poles in the next few hundred years.

If that happens, compasses which usually point north will point south. Animals which use the magnetic field for navigation such as birds, whales and sharks will find it difficult to migrate along their usual routes. Our magnetic navigation systems will have to be recalibrated.

And while South Africans won’t be able to watch the aurora visible over the equator during the pole switch, we are in a prime position to monitor the process because we are situated between the two areas of greatest change in the magnetic field.

Just south-west of Cape Town is the region where the largest decrease was recorded by satellites between 1980 and 2001: -8 percent. And not too far east of South Africa is the region in the Indian Ocean where the largest increase was recorded, of +3 percent.

At the magnetic observatory in Hermanus, one of four in the country, the geomagnetic field has decreased by more than 20 percent since 1941.

2011: THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK, JAMES WOLFENSOHN, MADE STUNNING CONFESSIONS

Posted in 2013 with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2013 by MARIE EMMANUELLE QUILICHINI

THE FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE WORLD BANK, JAMES WOLFENSOHN, MAKES STUNNING CONFESSIONS AS HE ADDRESS GRADUATE STUDENTS AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY. HE REVEALS THE INSIDE HAND OF WORLD DOMINATION FROM PAST, TO THE PRESENT AND INTO THE FUTURE. THE SPEECH WAS MADE JANUARY 11TH, 2010. THE NEXT 19 MINUTES MAY OPEN YOUR MIND TO A VERY DELIBERATE WORLD!

HE TELLS THE GRAD STUDENTS WHAT’S COMING, “A TECTONIC SHIFT” IN WEALTH FROM THE WEST TO THE EAST. BUT HE DOESN’T TELL THE STUDENTS THAT IT IS HIS INSTITUTION, THE WORLD BANK, THAT’S DIRECTING AND CHANNELING THESE CHANGES.

WOLFENSOHN’S OWN INVESTMENT FIRM IS IN CHINA, POISED TO PROFIT FROM THIS “IMMINENT SHIFT” IN GLOBAL WEALTH.
