Rough, Ready, But Very Real – A November 2013 Update On The Jordan Valley Permaculture Project (aka ‘Greening The Desert – The Sequel’ Site) – 19 November 2013

Posted November 19, 2013 by

Project from above, featuring a garbage-accumulating fence edge

Well, you would be hard pressed to find a tougher block of land — a 400m below sea level, West facing slope, in an extremely hot, arid climate, with extremely poor, shallow highly alkaline top ‘soil’, covered in rocks, with a limited water supply and in a mostly Palestinian refugee-populated village. When we first started working on the site local farmers thought it was just ridiculous to even try to produce any kind of result on such a rough site. They were not interested at all and could see no reason to stop using chemicals and burning crop residues and planting nothing but large fields of monoculture cash crops. Continue reading

Judith Dagley – Emergence Emergency- The Perfect Storm – 19 November 2013

judithWhat a weekend of unprecedented intensity this is! Not news to most of you, I’m sure– not by this point within it, anyway. As this particular Taurus moon reaches fullness, it is accompanied by a celestial Grand Cross that is designed to propel us into expansion in any way possible. Thus, we are being catapulted into the unknown, and “planted” by the grounding energy of Taurus in a whole NEW territory–IF we allow it, that is. Continue reading

ZeroHedge – Tyler Durden – The October 2012 Pre-Election Jobs Report Was Faked – 19 November 2013

ZeroHedgeOn Friday October 5, 2012, the BLS released what was arguably the most important report of Obama’s first term: the final jobs number, and unemployment rate before the November 2012 presidential election. As so many predicted, it “plunged” from 8.1% to 7.8% allowing the president to conduct countless teleprompted speeches praising the success of his economic recovery. It also served as the basis for the infamous Jack Welch tweet: “Unbelievable jobs numbers..these Chicago guys will do anything..can’t debate so change numbers” and prompted the pro-Obama media to quickly brand all those who questioned it as conspiracy theorists. The Atlantic did perhaps the most exemplary job in its task to discredit the “random anonymous cranks” who challenged the bullshit spewed by the administration’s manipulative economic data reporting apparatus. From The Atlantic’s Unemployment Plummets To 7.8%.

Dana Mrkich – The Sun’s Field Flipped 11 Years Ago…Why Is This Time Any Different? – 19 November 2013

Dana Colour Pic NewJudy has asked a great, and fair, question: “I read that it (the sun) flips every 11 years or so. I didn’t notice anything the last time. why would this time be different?.

My reply: From what I’ve experienced personally and through my work, and through the comments/experiences of others, even though there is nothing new about a Solar Magnetic Flip – which happens every 11 years – and there is nothing new about solar flares, what IS new is our increasing sensitivity to solar activities – part of our overall increasing sensitivity to ALL energy. So these days, as the Sun goes through it’s flares and flips and eruptions, we are feeling this in emotional, physical and energetic ways. I can’t count how many times especially over the last couple of years I’ve just known “the sun just had a major flare” or someone has messaged me asking ‘have we just had a flare?’ and the answer is usually yes, a major one.
