Over the past few of weeks, Christ’s Ministry has endured an attack by our enemy opposers to the throne. What began approximately 20 days ago culminated on May 27th with the Holy side defeating the enemy after our Ministry forum, Yahweh’s forum, was hijacked by order of Dawn Lucifer.
During this public attack, demands were made of me, as the author of the companion book to the Bible, Chosen: End Times Truths Revealed. Their public demand of 5/23/10 stated that I never should have involved myself in the war and further stated that I would be given sanctuary within their family if I publicly denied my allegiance and faith to Yahweh and the Holy Family as well as renounce the truths contained within Chosen. If I failed to comply with their demands I risked being possessed, tortured and made to go insane. I was given 24 hours to comply with their demands.
It was several hours before I saw this, but once I did of course I did not need but a fraction of a second to reply. My reply was: “Matthew 4 10 Then Jesus told him, "Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him. I do not need 24 hours. They can all get behind me, because I stand by Yahweh, Her truth, Christ Jesus, the Holy Family and this Ministry. Our God is great; greater than any and I remain her humble servant in obedience, faith, loyalty and out of love. She is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
Psalm 119:30 I have chosen the way of truth, I have set Your ordinances [before me]. 2 Corinthians 13:8 For we are not able to do anything against the truth, but only for the truth.
Unfortunately, they launched an attack on my shield far before the 24 hour deadline. There were so many fallen angels sent that my shield was overrun, but soon after I was assigned a new and larger shield as protection.
We will share more with you on this attack in the new section that has been added to the Newsletter, “Spiritual War News” but there is something that I want to relate to all of you pertaining to why Satan and his angels consider Chosen as well as our Newsletters, Websites, Social Networks, Blogs and all posts that are made on the internet by this Ministry a threat. It is because this Ministry is Truth.
Those who oppose the throne both despise and fear Truth because truth is a mighty sword against the Sons of Darkness and a beacon of light shining brightly for all those who seek it. Because their goal is to halt prophecy and destroy all chances for Father’s faithful children to be Raptured, the Truth is a weapon that is used against them in their efforts. It breaks the chains of darkness and frees us from the bondage of the many lies that have been created to enslave us within that darkness created by the enemy.
Chosen: End Times Truths Revealed was inspired by Father Yahweh and used as a tool with which to shed the light of truth upon mankind because it reveals many truths that were not known before the appropriate time given by Yahweh.
John 8:23 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
From this point forward as we play our part in continuing to lift the veil our Ministry will be providing you with many new things. As mentioned before, we will have Spiritual War News added to the Newsletter and we will also be teaching all of you how to read and decipher Spiritual Photographs in the new “Lifting the Veil” section so that you can see for yourselves and with your own eyes that this is all real.
Additionally we will be adding several new chapters to Chosen: End Times Truths Revealed that will chronicle events that have occurred from the time the book left off and up to present day from each of the Ministers’ perspectives. These additions will be available to you all in .pdf form for free via the book’s website located at
All of these truths will help to further the lifting of the veil and, they will be a mighty weapon used to defeat the enemy as more people are brought to an accurate knowledge of the truth.
1 Timothy 2:3 This is good and it pleases God our Savior, who wants everyone to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Being Caught In This Cruel Time
submitted by Jeshaiah
Ecclesiastes 9:12 — For man certainly does not know his time: like fish caught in a cruel net, or like birds caught in a trap, so people are trapped in an evil time, as it suddenly falls on them.
A brother had related that we are here by chance. Due to risks and chances being taken, a lot of pain and suffering has come upon the world. To consider, a lot of the Law given in the Old Testament provides for action in case something occurs.
In combat situations, it is very difficult to determine what the opponent/enemy is going to do before they do it. Knowing what the enemy will do helps oneself to know what to do in reaction, so as to not be in a position to be harmed, and in order to neutralize their enemy. However, with every piece of knowledge to know about what one's enemy will do, there may be more and more deeper within that. In this way, it is difficult to always be able to proceed on a mission, or defend.
1 Kings 22:34 — But a man drew his bow without taking special aim and struck the king of Israel through the joints of his armor. So he said to his charioteer, "Turn around and take me out of the battle, for I am badly wounded!"
However, Father knows every outcome of every battle, and knows all the factors involved in every situation.
This is similar to situations even outside of combat. In diplomatic situations, it is not always known what one's receiver of communication is going to react with. Further, a person simply doing their normal daily job may encounter a situation where combat is brought to their environment, and their whole situation is turned around. Interestingly, though, similar strategies and forms may be applied in non-combat situations, as in combat situations. One may think ahead and not take action before enough consideration and counsel from Father comes. In another way, a person may take a moment to find out more information about the one they are interacting with before they are ready to respond. In any such situation where chance is involved, oneself can apply Father's solid Wisdom and stay within Her protection.
All of this applies even to the current time. Very shortly, there will be things seen occurring in the United States that are seen in other countries. The riots heard of in Greece will be seen America, and perhaps even the governmental control that might be seen in Thailand where the government used lethal force against the protesters and rioters will be seen in America. The chaos seen that occurred in New Orleans will be much more widespread. Yet, even amongst all that oneself may find themselves caught up in, Father is still in control and has control over everything that is happening.
It may be difficult to maintain endurance, steadfast love, and have long-suffering amongst all the pain of what may be seen, but something to remember is that these are also a part of the labor pangs of distress. Father will not allow oneself to be overwhelmed or have to handle anything they can't. Amongst this we provide Father glory in difficult times.
2 Corinthians 6:4-10 — But in everything, as God's ministers, we commend ourselves:
by great endurance, by afflictions, by hardship, by pressures,
by beatings, by imprisonments, by riots, by labors,
by sleepless nights, by times of hunger,
by purity, by knowledge, by patience, by kindness,
by the Holy Spirit, by sincere love,
by the message of truth, by the power of God;
through weapons of righteousness on the right hand and the left,
through glory and dishonor, through slander and good report;
as deceivers yet true;
as unknown yet recognized; as dying and look—we live;
as being chastened yet not killed;
as grieving yet always rejoicing; as poor yet enriching many;
as having nothing yet possessing everything.
When we are going through a particularly hard time in our lives we sometimes feel like we are the only ones going through it or that we have been singled out for this particular affliction.
However, many of the most difficult things we experience have also been experienced by Father.
Death of a child
And Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into Your hands I entrust My spirit. " Saying this, He breathed His last.
Dissolvment of marriage
I observed that it was because unfaithful Israel had committed adultery that I had sent her away and had given her a certificate of divorce. Nevertheless, her treacherous sister Judah was not afraid but also went and prostituted herself.
and now, you would turn away from the LORD? If you rebel against the LORD today, tomorrow He will be angry with the entire community of Israel.
Though it seems so difficult to continue on in the face of these things that happen, we must not give up. Giving up is not an option.
You became weary on your many journeys, [but] you did not say, "I give up!" You found a renewal of your strength; therefore you did not grow weak.
The oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico is worrying for so many people who will lose their livelhoods or become ill from the contamination. Although catastrophic things will most certainly continue to occur we must endure and trust in Father to rescue us from the worst of it.
He rescues and delivers; He performs signs and wonders in the heavens and on the earth, for He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions."
Be still and know that Father is in control.
Nourishment From The Throne
The Word, the written living communication of Father sheds light on creation:
Hebrews 1:1, 2.
The Nature of the Son
"Long ago God spoke to the fathers by the prophets at different times and in different ways. In these last days, He has spoken to us by [His] Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things and through whom He made the universe." What exactly is the "universe" spoken of in the Word?
universe >noun 1 all existing matter and space considered as a whole; the cosmos. 2 a particular sphere of activity or experience.
-ORIGIN from Latin universus 'combined into one, whole'.
The Word is not referring to the Milky Way, nor any other single universe as the term is often applied. It is as the definition states: " all existing matter and space considered as a whole;" Please note that the Word states "through whom He made the universe." This is a KEY factor of Michael having been the skilled craftsman beside Her in the beginning. Proverbs 8:30 "I was a skilled craftsman beside Him." In past times, a son was taught his trade by his father. It was passed down from the Original Pair that instituted the tradition. But what does it mean by Michael being "skilled" as a craftsman to Father?
skilled >adjective 1 having or showing skill. 2 (of work) requiring special abilities or training.
So, we see that Michael had to have had training by Father. Does this mean that Father first had to create something aside from Michael in order to hone Michael's crafting ability? No, because all things aside from Michael were created by Michael. But keep in mind, Michael had millions of years to learn and hone his ability. In addition, he had Father's guidance. But, a learning process is meant to be educational. So if Michael was simply empowered with the creation ability without need of honing his craft to a precision, then it would have been pointless to train under Father's guidance, because the ability would have already been existent. But this was not the case.
Proverbs 8:22 "The LORD made me at the beginning of His creation, before His works of long ago." Here, Michael gives the clue to his earlier works that eventually honed his ability. He notes that Father "made" ….
"made past and past participle of make."
"make >verb (past and past part. made) 1 form by putting parts together or combining substances. 2 cause to be or come about. 3 force to do something. 4 (make into) alter (something) so that it forms (something else). 5 constitute, amount to, or serve as. 6 estimate as or decide on. 7 gain or earn (money or profit). 8 arrive at or achieve. 9 (make it) become successful. 10 prepare to go in a particular direction or do a particular thing: he made towards the car. 11 arrange bedclothes tidily on (a bed) ready for use. >noun the manufacturer or trade name of a product.
-PHRASES have (got) it made informal be in a position where success is certain. make after pursue. make away with 1 another way of saying make off with. 2 kill furtively and illicitly. make do manage with the limited means available. make for 1 move towards. 2 tend to result in or be received as. 3 (be made for) be eminently suited for. make it up to compensate for unfair treatment. make of 1 ascribe (attention or importance) to. 2 understand or derive (advantage) from. make off leave hurriedly. make off with carry away illicitly. make or break be the factor which decides whether (something) will succeed or fail. make out 1 manage with difficulty to see, hear, or understand. 2 represent as or pretend. 3 draw up (a list or document). 4 informal make progress; fare. make over 1 transfer the possession of. 2 give (someone) a new image with cosmetics, hairstyling, and clothes. make sail spread a sail or sails, especially to begin a voyage. make time find an occasion when time is available to do something. make up 1 put together or prepare from parts or ingredients. 2 concoct or invent (a story). 3 (also make up for) compensate for. 4 be reconciled after a quarrel. 5 apply cosmetics to. make up one's mind make a decision. make way allow room for someone or something else. on the make informal 1 intent on gain. 2 looking for a sexual partner."
That definition covers a lot of territory but it gives "1 put together or prepare from parts or ingredients." which is how Michael came into existence. The parts and ingredients were from Father. The end result was the birth of Michael from Father. What does that birth make Father? Michael's Mother. In addition, Yahweh the Mother was also Michael's Father. Two for the price of one. So, Father took Her energy and "2 cause to be or come about." Then, Michael became acquainted with his Creator Yahweh. Father taught Michael first and foremost: Proverbs 8:20 "I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice," Now think….Michael was a new creation, and the only creation of Father's, so where did Father develop the concepts of "righteousness" and the "paths of justice" which are Her Way? At this point in time, there was no Satan. No other angels at all. It was just Michael and Father. Or was it? Also, keep in mind that the reality that has become the "universe" of all creation did not yet exist. This comes later with Michael's honed ability. So, again I ask each of you, where did Father develop the concept of Her Way?
The Way involves Father's time spent with other Gods like Herself. Existing in eternity outside of the reality Michael created. Father wanted Michael to have a home within Her. To not simply remain along side Her glory in the dark void of eternity where light is only emitted by the Gods that reside there. Father created Michael because She was lonely. When She spoke of Adam and stated that: Genesis 2:18
Then the LORD God said, "It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper who is like him." And so, who did Father "make" as a helper that is like Her in every way, for the exception of being all powerful? And is it not true that Eve was a lessor vessel in comparison to Adam's strength? This also holds true with Michael, but nonetheless, Father made Michael a god in his own right, and before Michael created the universe we all live in, he was alongside Father sharing Her glory outside of this creation we all know and love to be a part of. We'll come back to this, but first, try and comprehend this revelation:
"So God created man in His own image; He created him in the image of God; He created them male and female." This is what reveals that Father is both male and female. Aside from Father's attributes, the image of Father is both male and female without being split off. When Michael made Adam he took a rib and formed the woman from Adam's own body. Although Eve had a mind of her own, she still came forth from the body of Adam. In this same way, Michael came from the body of Yahweh, whom is both Mother and Father to him. Michael was designated as a Son, because Father is more female than male, so he became the part she was loneliest for – male companionship as Her Son, not lover. This is because Father does not require a mate to be able to birth or make a creation. Yahweh is complete within Herself to attain that goal. However, as the Word points out, Father has feelings, such as anger, jealousy, and suffering from within to name only three. So, if you can understand that even though Father has always existed, She eventually felt lonely within, and this is why Michael came into existence. Later, Father told Michael of Her Divine Plan to fill their universe with all sorts of creations. And this my friends is where the craftsman honing process began.
"1 In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
[Michael was and is the Word. His beginning was with Father. He resided outside in eternity alongside Father.]
" and the Word was God.
[Father made the Word (Michael) a god in his own right, but lessor to Father.]
"2 He was with God in the beginning.
[The Word was with Father when he came into existence, but not within this existence we all share. It was Michael's beginning, not ours.]
"3 All things were created through Him,
[All things were created through Father by Michael. Actually within Father's own body of existence.]
" and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.
[Apart from Father not a single thing was created. This is because Michael was taught how to create using Father's surplus of energy for the building blocks. The same energy Michael originated from. In this way, all of us in creation, including Michael are from the One Single God Yahweh, and not a product of any of the other Gods that share eternity together. ]
"4 Life was in Him,
[Father's gift of life was within the Word.]
"and that life was the light of men.
[The same Light – meaning Yahweh, worked in union with the Word to give life to mankind. The work performed by Michael brought light into creation. The creation brought not only living angelic hosts, but also mankind. This is aside from the animal kingdom that Michael started creating in his learning years.]
"5 That light shines in the darkness,
[That Light is Yahweh. Just as Yahweh is a blazing fire of light outside in eternity alongside other Gods, She brought the Light into Her own reality that Michael created. ]
"yet the darkness did not overcome it."
[This is two fold. The darkness that is in the outer realm of eternity did not overcome the inner reality created by Michael, and the devilish work of Dawn Lucifer has not overcome Father's Plan that Michael started creating in our beginning.]
Michael spent many years learning his trade, and that is what is meant at:
Proverbs 8:23 "I was formed before ancient times, from the beginning, before the earth began." "ancient times" begins with his skill. Before that, it was his beginning and his learning curve that was taking place.
Proverbs 8:22 The LORD made me at the beginning of His creation, before His works of long ago." Father's creation of the Word was the Word's start in his own beginning, and Father's beginning of a creation. The only creation Father ever created. However, "before His works of long ago." refer to Michael's learning process where Father was guiding him on how to create the interior of creation – this universe we all live within. And as to how Father developed the concept of Her Way, it was from all of the failures the other Gods had suffered and Father witnessed. Father saw the flaws, and She knew that righteousness and justice must prevail in order for any creation to exist in harmony. In this knowledge, Father developed the Way that She knew was best for all of Her creation to follow. She taught the Way to Michael, and Michael taught the Way to each of us. Failure to follow that path is an eternal death penalty for all creations perfected in Father's Law. If Father permitted free will agency, the entirety of creation would eventually be out of balance. The Earth is proof of that statement. Unless Father has control of creation, existence would eventually cease, because Father Herself is the sustainer of all in existence. She must be in harmony with Her creation, and creation must be in harmony with Her.
Spiritual War News
Sons of Life vs. the Sons of Darkness
May 21, 2010
Seraiah – Be prepared for whatever might come your way; Dawn is up to his crafty misdealing. We are busy trying to keep up with him.
Regina – Should we change the passwords? Or has the damage already been done?
May 22, 2010
Seraiah – Damage is done, but he can't get back in; we made sure of that. Dawn did it without need of a password; now they can't get past Yahweh's Active Force for reentry. Dawn's launched a campaign to prepare the masses for when he appears as the Antichrist; he's also got a hit list out for all of Michael's upper command.
P.S. The demon he's using is a flake if I ever saw one, because he is really off the wall.:)
This will just be one of many forums Dawn will use to tell blatant lies to try and further his agenda; we will deal with them as they come to our attention; at present I'm on the hunt for Dawn. Talk at you kids another time. *hugs*
Deborah – Um. I just went to that site and looked at the thread about "Seraiakh" and it felt like there was energy pressing down and around on my head. And… it didn't feel like positive energy. I got off and didn't read the first post in full. I just wanted to post it here to sort of give you guys a heads up.
Seraiah – Alphy will no longer be a problem; but he was just one single cog in Dawn's new offensive; easily replaced; we have to stay on guard because Dawn is evidently training demons to act and sound like the one he targets. The only difference is in the reversed way things are delivered to the readers of the forums they might inhabit; by that I mean the foul manner and the extreme content of what is given is usually negative with truths salted in. But I'm telling you kids, I sat and watched that demon start off trying to sound like me; when one try for acceptance did not work he would switch gears and tell an entirely new group of lies to try and sway the readership; but was he good at what he did? Hodiah remarked after viewing several pics he had marked that if he did not know better he would have thought I did them; that's how well trained he was at imitating my style. He also often sounded like me except for his crude language and his twisted views; we believe the plan was to eventually replace me and then he would have conjured up another group of lies about how he was really me and why he was being devious for the good of Dawn's side in this war. But anyhow, he was also responsible for recently ambushing a Cherub patrol that ended with all of them killed, including Hodaviah and helping Dawn dispose of Hoddy's spent energy. I could not locate Dawn at the time nor could any of Yahweh's deputies, and then the alphy character admitted he was the one that OFFed Hodaviah; from that moment I knew I was going to be the one that OFFed him and that's eventually what happened; I finally honed in on his energy and found him preparing to make another post to the Uber readership; I halted him in mid sentence and warned that I might spare him for a resident spot in the Orange Plane if he would divulge where Hodaviah's remains had been hidden; he refused and quickly dematerialized back unto the spirit realm. The rest is history and written at the Great Hall of Records; his energy was burned out of existence; Hodiah later said, "Don't you think that was overkill for that vermin Seraiah?" My reply was "No not at all. What goes around eventually comes around; and Dawn had better learn I'll be making the rounds more often than he could ever image."
P.S. Dawn has since been apprehended and gave up the hiding place of our beloved Brother; he will be reanimated tomorrow Amen to Father for yet another act of love towards Her warriors in this complex war.
Seraiah – Well Sasa, Dawn didn't lose anytime in filling alphy's slot; but don't worry, we are on it and we are tracking Enmeduranki. He tried to break security here but was repelled by Yahweh's Active Force. He's taken alphy's place at the Uber forum. This is what he's posted thus far:

Diana Akyroid we know you are viewing alphy's threads. Dawn has assigned an entire legion to bring you dowm. Not Jaddai, no not even Seraiah will be able to protect you anymore. You should never have involved yourself in this war. You can only become a causality by our side. Your callus disregard for our plight to survive the unjust criminal conduct towards us by Yahweh is unforgivable. However Dawn has agreed to permit you a sanctuary within our family if you publicly deny your allegiance and faith to our enemy and renounce that book of lies you so ignorantly had published. Diana, if you will come to your senses and do that, we will let you alone on this grave matter and in fact agree to forgive your gross transgressions you've meted out against our suffering family unduly and with malice forethought to earn a spot within Christ's kingdom that will never come to pass. The choice is yours, but I know you'll come to the only logical conclusion for your own safety and your long awaited peace of mind. Do as I ask Diana. I don't want to see you possessed, tortured and made to go insane. But if you do not, Dawn will order the legion to move against you swiftly. You have 24 hours to comply with our demands. And if Seraiah is reading this, I assure you Seraiah you will pay dearly for what you've done to our fellow brother and cherished sorely missed family member that was only trying to warn these people of Yahweh's impending murder plot against our side that they are unfortunately a part of. You better than anyone else know she intends to have her legions murder all of mankind to satisfy her blood lust. So stay out of our business or you will get your just deserts early!!

I just want to tell you this story abou
alphy has made his last post. Peace and love from Yahweh and Christ.
Your posts have seemed convoluted and almost impossible to understand. I did like the photos with the squiggles…
What alphy warned about with Seraiah the bastard, it has occurred. alphy was struck down and burned away to oblivion by Seraiah's white fire. Seraiah's the one that interrupted alphy's post and added "alphy has made his last post. Peace and love from Yahweh and Christ." I'll be taking alphy's place. Seraiah has no quarrel with me at present. The spiritial war is real. We are all living in perilous times with Yahweh's henchmen threatening death at every turn of this winding path we are all on. But fear not, I will continue the important work alphy was assigned to do by our leader.
"Seraiah has no quarrel with me at present." Well I do now. Right Jaddai? That turkey is asking to be basted. "Yahweh's henchmen threatening death" I guess we'll just take this beyond the threatening stage Well, I'm headed out to see dawn-ho again, and I'll take care of this matter; I'm giving it high priority. If Dawn gives me any gruff I'll burn him and Enmeduranka to a cinder. See you later kids, I'm off to Bolivia to visit some serpents. *hugs*
Johanna – This ain't happening. Diana is well guarded. She knows this as do all the ministers. It is just trash talk.
Regina – Matthew 4 10 Then Jesus told him, "Go away, Satan! For it is written: Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.
I do not need 24 hours. They can all get behind me, because I stand by Yahweh, Her truth, Christ Jesus, the Holy Family and this Ministry. Our God is great; greater than any and I remain her humble servant in obedience, faith, loyalty and out of love. She is my refuge and my fortress, my God in whom I trust.

Learning How to See and Decipher Spiritual Photos
The Lions of Zion Port of Entry
If you ever see me abbreviate with "LOZPE" that just means the Lions of Zion are using this property to stage operations from as they come here from Orion and settle in.
I shot a few pics tonight; Michael wants the Newsletter readership to be able to see that the LOZ is real, before they materialize in the future. He feels this gives them added assurance that Yahweh is serious about invading this planet and removing all present day governments to make way for Christ's Rule over this world in the future Paradise Earth.
This is essential in teaching the readership about the spirirt realm: What they are seeing is not merely a spirit casted pic – it is in fact a window into the other world that few have ever
knowingly opened and viewed into, or physically ventured beyond the divide while still alive on this side of the window; the spirit world actively uses this entire world's window to peer back through; in truth, all spirit pics are alive, because they are in fact made of slow vibrating energy, and all things are energy regardless of their vibratory speed.
When you teach your readers to read spirit pics , the lighting changes are esential in revealing what lies beyond the window.
What is on the surface is evident if they can see the translucent spirits utilizing the colors and objects available on our side of the window; the main purpose for this is so that the
spirits can be seen; it's as simple as that; the next thing, is that they give messages in every pic, and all messages regardless of the degree of importance are recorded at the Great Hall of Records which acts as a library and repository of life in creation. Everything that happens in creation is recorded, And this is why creation is one big window that displays everything every second life goes on; even Dawn's safe zones activities are recorded, but under the Rules of this War, unless the demons are breaking the Rules, their SZ records are recorded and kept private, and will remain so until the conclusion of this spiritual war sometime in the future.
Tonight I'm just working with the one single pic, and now putting on the light alteration that
permits the reader to see what the orbs actually are; but they should also note that the vegetation is also used in the casts; the orbs are the spirits in compact form, and the casts are being created with outer shell energy by nothing more than the use of their minds. Where your muscles are your strength in this realm – it is the mind that is the strength in the other realm:
I want all of you to see one of the pics of the Horizon oil spill that has Yahweh's hand in it; if you look close and study it over, there's a lot more than just her hand in this pic:
Friends, I've had this ability for a great while. I call it Advanced Psychometry; you might call it something else. But the purpose of it (actually it has many other avenues that you will learn on your own), is to break through the wall of the Spirit Realm. It develops your second sight. But I forewarn you, that NOT ALL is good that you will see from time to time. And when you KNOW or FEEL that you are really in tune with this process, you will actually see a power source around you. The more you practice this ability, the greater your power source will grow,
In this exercise for development, I will take you back a step from the Mind-Link exercise I gave once before. However, it works on the same principle. Actually, all of this Advanced Psychometry works in the transfixed posture that you are about to develop, if you so choose. And one other caution: You cannot JUST TURN THIS OFF if you develop it. It will be with you from now on. So, you decide whether you want it or not. If not, then leave it alone. Once fully developed, you might not be able to see in a non-tranfixed posture. I have been doing it for so long that I cannot see with normal vision. To me, what I see coming from the other side, it is as vivid and real as what I see on our side. Sometimes I even mistake a ghost for a flesh and blood person. It's getting harder and harder for me to distinuish which side I'm viewing,especially with people and ghosts, because they both run together with my sight.
The exercise to start off: I've put the scene of a pic on. Please stare at one spot on the pic. Stare and concentrate all of your effort into that one spot. Let your eyes transfix. Do you know what that means (transfix)? If you don't understand, go to your mirrow and look above your eye (forehead) on the right side of the mirrow. That spot is above the eye, not into the eye. When your eyes transfix in a relaxed manner you will see a blurred or double of yourself. That's the transfixed gaze you're after. Do it the same with the pic on this exercise. After a while you will see a milky transparent haze form, then clear. Don't take your eyes off of the pic.
If you have second sight at all, you will see into the other realm. What you see, that will determine whether or not you want to move on and further develop your gifts.

ARKANSAS – A 2.6-magnitude earthquake hit Benton County Thursday night. This is the second earthquake in Benton County within a month, and residents who live near the epicenter are shocked a quake started right beneath their neighborhood. “My wife and I were in the house, and it just sounded like a tremendous explosion outside the door.” "I think it's very strange, especially in this part of the country where we've never heard of an earthquake before.” A University of Arkansas Geosciences professor said this quake was three miles below the Earth's surface and he doesn't believe it was caused by plate activity. “We think they were caused in the shallow rocks, the limestones. They are possibly where there's some collapse in some caverns near the surface, and as they fell, they released all that energy."
CHILE – A 5.7 quake hit on the 21st, on the 50 year anniversary of the biggest quake ever recorded. An earthquake measuring a magnitude of 5.7 hit the Libertador O'Higgins region in Chile at 2:52 pm EDT on Friday, May 21st. The quake struck six miles below the surface in an area that is about 90 miles from Santiago, Chile. Nearly three months ago, Chile was rocked by an 8.8 temblor which caused a tsunami and killed 521 people. Today's quake is fifty years to the day of a chilean quake with an eerie claim to fame. "The 1960 Valdivia earthquake or Great Chilean earthquake of 22 May 1960 is to date the most powerful earthquake ever recorded, rating 9.5 on the moment magnitude scale. It occurred in the afternoon (19:11 GMT, 14:11 local time) and its resulting tsunami affected southern Chile, Hawaii, Japan, the Philippines, eastern New Zealand, southeast Australia, and the Aleutian Islands in Alaska."
BRAZIL – No damage of any kind has been reported by civil defense units in the Brazilian state of Acre following the 6.5-magnitude earthquake on Monday.
U.S PACIFIC NORTHWEST – The risk of a major earthquake striking the Pacific Northwest within the next half-century is greater than once thought, researchers have found using a new series of geological observations. Earlier estimates forecasted that a major earthquake — similar in size to those which hit China, Mexico and Chile in recent months — is likely to strike the B.C. coast once every 500 years. That estimate was based on the long-accepted belief that the Cascadia Subduction Zone, which lies off the west coast of North America and runs from Northern California up to British Columbia, will trigger one large earthquake for the entire zone.
The west coast sits on the North American and Juan de Fuca tectonic plates. The plates are moving against each other; when that stress is finally released, a very powerful earthquake will result. But new research has revealed a more complex picture of the fault. Using carbon dating analysis of sediments on the Pacific Ocean floor, researchers have determined that Cascadia isn't one big subduction zone, but rather at least four separate segments. Their findings suggest that, instead of the entire fault rupturing at once, it will break in multiple, smaller parts, more frequently. The researchers predict a higher than a one-in-three chance of a major quake striking the Pacific Northwest within the next 50 years.
The last major earthquake to hit the northern subduction zone — which stretches from Seaside, Oregon, to Vancouver Island — occurred in January 1700, triggering a 10-metre-high tsunami. More recently, in 1946, a 7.3 magnitude quake struck on Vancouver Island. The earthquake was stronger than one in Haiti earlier this year. The southern end of the fault running from Newport, Oregon to Northern California has a 37 per cent chance of triggering a major earthquake in the next half century, with an average rate of roughly one quake every 240 years. In the northern end of the fault zone, the forecast is still for one quake every 500 years. But such a northern zone quake is likely to be much more intense and destructive than the more frequent southern quakes. The northern zone faces a 10 to 15 per cent chance of experiencing a devastating mega-quake over the next 50 years. "We're in that window where we could expect one of these giant earthquakes at any time. We really don't know when they will occur."
ICELAND'S Eyjafjoell volcano is no longer in activity, a geophysicist says, raising hopes the eruption, which has heavily disrupted European flights for more than a month, could be over. "What I can confirm is that the activity of the crater has stopped. No magma is coming up. The eruption, at least for the time being, has stopped. Now there is only steam coming out of the crater. It is too early to tell whether this is the end of the eruption or just a temporary stop in activity." It could take a very long time before it would be possible to say for sure. The latest eruption at Eyjafjoell began just a day after a more peaceful eruption ended on the Fimmvurduhals flank of the same volcano. Experts have cautioned that once the current eruption halted, a new blast in another crater or in the neighbouring and much larger and fiercer Katla volcano might follow. When or if that will happen is also "impossible to say".
HAWAII – Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii has marked a milestone after erupting continuously for 10000 days. It's the longest continuous eruption in the world today.
INDONESIA – An active volcano has erupted in Indonesia, spewing ash and lava at least 1,500 metres into the sky, damaging crops but not threatening villagers. Mount Baru Jari on Lombok island, near Bali, has been active for several months but yesterday's eruption was "big," the island's volcano monitoring official said. "From yesterday evening to early today, the volcano erupted three times and was accompanied by tremors. The first eruption spewed ash and lava 1,500 to 2,000 metres high." Lava flowed into a lake, pushing its temperature to 35 degrees Celsius, up from 21 degrees Celsius. "The smoke had spread as far as 12 kilometres and dozens of acres of crop land were covered in ash. "But the eruptions haven't reached dangerous levels yet, so we're not evacuating villagers."
COSTA RICA – Arenal volcano has erupted, spewing geysers of lava, ash and toxic gases from its crater and forcing the evacuation of the national park where it is located. The mountain in northern Costa Rica shuddered into activity at 4am this morning issuing eight successive rivers of lava that flowed down its steep slopes. Nobody was at risk from the eruptions but authorities as a precaution evacuated the Arenal National Park, 80km north-east of San Jose. The Arenal Volcano is one of Costa Rica's major tourist attractions and the park has scores of hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and shopping centres. No estimates were given of how many people were inside the park when the eruption began. Arenal's last major eruption in July 1968 killed 89 people. Smaller eruptions have occurred at least six times over the past 35 years.
Mountain Baekdu, a dormant volcano on the border between North Korea and China, is showing signs of a possible eruption in the near future, experts warned Tuesday. "Baekdu could erupt anytime soon. A variety of indicators are backing this scenario. The thing we should try to predict is when. It's clear it's imminent." Major activity in the 1960s created a caldera on its peak. Volcanic ash from this eruption has been found as far away as the southern part of Hokkaido, Japan. Small-scale eruptions were recorded roughly on a centurial basis – in 1413, 1597, 1668 and 1702. The latest volcanic eruption recorded at the mountain was back in 1903. The mountain has stayed inactive since then, leaving it categorized by scientists as dormant. The Chinese government developed the mountain and surrounding areas as a tourist destination drawing tens of thousands of visitors from around the world each year.
Yet, "UNUSUAL SIGNS," including minor trembling among others, began to emerge in June 2002 and a 7.3-magnitude earthquake rattled areas in the vicinity of Baekdu. The frequency of the quakes has notably increased since then. "It seems that a shockwave from the quake reactivated magma approximately 30 kilometers beneath the mountain. The more frequent these are, the higher the possibility of an eruption." Minor quakes which are too weak to be felt by human beings take place nearly 100 times per day. "We saw the number steeply increase in recent years." Among other indicators backing the scenario of a future eruption is the height of Baekdu, which has grown nearly 10 centimeters since 2002. Experts say bloated magma, a precondition of eruption, is gradually pushing up the height of the mountain as well as the temperature on the surface. On October 1, 2006, a Russian satellite found the surface temperature of the mountain notably higher than before. The finding came just days after North Korea conducted an underground nuclear bomb test in its northern region, indicating the test was a catalyst reactivating the magma, analysts said. The increase in the number of withered evergreen trees on the mountain may be another indicator. If the eruption is major in scale, it would bring about massive consequences to the two Koreas as well as the surrounding states, including China, Japan and Russia. "The amount of volcanic ash from the most violent eruption nearly 1,000 years ago was enough to cover the entire the Korean peninsula to a height of 1.2 meters. Baekdu's caldera contains nearly two billion tons of water. If it evaporates into the air all of a sudden mixed with volcanic ash of a major eruption, it would be blown to the east and consequently engulf Vladivostok in Russia and Hokkaido in northern Japan."
TSUNAMI / FREAK WAVES / ABNORMAL TIDES / RISING SEA LEVELS –
A magnitude 7.4 quake off the southern Pacific Ocean island of Vanuatu prompted a tsunami warning for the nearby Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. The quake, initially reported as a magnitude 7.6, was 22.4 miles deep and centered 133 miles northwest of Santo in Vanuatu. "An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines in the region near the epicenter within minutes to hours", but it was not yet clear whether a tsunami had actually been generated. The warning was in effect for the region only and that will not expand to other areas of the Pacific based on the information known so far.
TROPICAL STORMS -
The National Hurricane Center has issued a statement noting the development of an area of bad weather northeast of the Bahamas. The gale, moving slowly toward the north northwest, has a 30-to-50-percent chance of developing into the Atlantic season's first tropical storm. The storm will likely stay offshore, wandering around off the Carolinas for a time before heading east and out to sea. But it will likely send gales and showers onshore. (map)
SOMALIA – A Royal Navy warship on anti-piracy operations carried out a daring rescue of the crew of a merchant vessel after it was caught in tropical cyclone Bandu off the Somalian coast on Thursday. The crew battled 26ft waves and 65 knot winds in order to save the 23 men on board a cargo ship. The ship narrowly missed being run aground on an island and the Royal Navy vessel also had to act to avoid dangerous shoals. On a deck listing up to 40 degrees and slick with spilled engine oil and sea water, the winchman fought for nearly four hours to retrieve all 23 people on board the stricken ship.
Tropical Cyclone Bandu was expected to move through the Gulf of Aden Sunday, passing between Yemen and Somalia. Tropical cyclones are VERY RARE in this part of the world. Bandu originated over the open, warm waters of the Arabian Sea this past week. The cyclone has remained below hurricane strength.
The last major tropical cyclone to impact this area was Cyclone Gonu. It struck Oman in June 2007. Gonu was the strongest cyclone ever to form in the Arabian Sea with peak sustained winds of 150 mph. Gonu made landfall in Oman, causing dozens of deaths.
ATLANTIC – A disorganized area of showers and thunderstorms in the southwestern Atlantic is being monitored for possible development during the next day or so, and it may become the first named storm of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season. If the storm is named, it will be called Alex, most likely with the moniker of Subtropical Storm Alex.
That's because the storm would most likely be a hybrid storm – one that has characteristics of a storm of both tropical and nontropical (normal low-pressure system) origins – rather than a purely tropical storm. Sea surface temperatures in this region of the Atlantic, which are relatively cool at this time of year, are what would prevent the storm from obtaining pure tropical characteristics. A subtropical storm creates the same effects as a tropical storm in terms of wind, waves and rain. Residents along the Southeast coast, especially in the eastern Carolinas, will need to monitor the development and track of the system in the coming days. (map)
The low pressure area in the western Atlantic continued to diminish Tuesday morning. However, the hurricane center continues to monitor the system, saying it has a 20 percent chance of development. At 8 a.m. the area was about halfway between the Bahamas and Bermuda, moving slowly north. The disturbance delivered heavy rain to Bermuda on Monday and might bring some storms to the Carolinas. (map)
THE 2010 ATLANTIC HURRICANE SEASON MAY BE ONE OF THE WORST ON RECORD, US officials warn, amid fears it could deepen an oil crisis in the Gulf of Mexico and bring new misery to Haiti. An "active to extremely active" hurricane season which starts on June 1 was expected for the Atlantic Basin this year, US officials said. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA) said it was predicting three to seven major hurricanes, with eight to 14 smaller hurricanes, and 14 to 23 named storms would hit the region over the next six months. This compares to an average of two major hurricanes, six smaller hurricanes and 11 storms per season.
Cyclone Laila on India's east coast last week decelerated the progress of the monsoon, which is forecast to hit India's southern coast on May 30. The Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting hinted on Wednesday at the possibility of cyclone formation in the Arabian Sea during the first week of June. This would pose a threat to the orderly progress of the monsoon, and would be a throwback to the situation created by Super Cyclone Gonu in 2007. ‘Gonu' is the strongest tropical cyclone on record in the Arabian Sea, and is also the strongest named cyclone in the northern Indian Ocean. The second named tropical cyclone of the 2007 North Indian Ocean cyclone season, ‘Gonu' developed from a persistent area of convection in the eastern Arabian Sea on June 1. In a striking coincidence, this is the time band, areas of cyclo-genesis and landfall that the ECMWF is indicating for the storm brewing in the first week of June. Intense tropical cyclones such as ‘Gonu' are RARE over the Arabian Sea, as most storms in this area tend to be small and dissipate quickly. But this may not be the case anymore, with systems showing an increasing proclivity to form during the onset (as against mid-way into season) of the monsoon when they would have the right environment and attributes to attain maximum strength. The only relief to an otherwise cloudy scenario is the fact that no other major model has indicated formation of any strong system in the Arabian Sea during this period. Earlier, seasonal rains had hurried into Sri Lanka, just hopping distance from the southern Indian peninsular tip, five days ahead of normal on May 20. The monsoon failed to sustain the ‘lead time' largely because of the antics of party-pooper tropical cyclone ‘Laila' in the Bay of Bengal, which it had not bargained for. The flows have since showed signs of regrouping over the south and adjoining south-east Arabian Sea where convective clouds have been showing up over the past few days. But wind flows have lacked the required speed, orientation and depth. At best, the prevailing flows depict an unruly onvergence of southwesterly-to-westerly winds and westerly-to-northwesterly winds. On Wednesday, the Global Forecasting System indicated the onset of rains around May 29.
Foreboding signs forming in the tropics – Scientists have tracked ocean temperatures in the hurricane-prone waters of the Atlantic since the end of World War II, but never have they seen a run-up to hurricane season as sobering as this one. The tropics are even warmer than the toasty waters that spurred the 2005 hurricane season into such dizzying activity, with 28 named storms including Katrina, Rita and Wilma. “The tropics are super warm right now.” That doesn't necessarily mean a repeat of the hyperactive 2005 season. There remain many unknowns, such as the level of wind shear in August, September and October. The latest Colorado State forecast predicts 15 named storms this year, about 50 percent more than an average year, and eight hurricanes. That's consistent with the forecasts issued by numerous private and academic groups. But on Thursday the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration upped the ante by predicting 14 to 23 named storms and eight to 14 hurricanes this season. “The main uncertainty in this outlook is how MUCH above normal the season will be."
The midpoint of NOAA's prediction is 18.5 storms, a FAR HIGHER NUMBER THAN IT HAS EVER FORECAST in its decade of publishing predictions. Several climatic factors have caused forecasters concern, but warm seas are the primary driver of their predictions. In April the average temperature in the tropical North Atlantic was 1.38 Celsius degrees above average, or about 2.5 Fahrenheit degrees, BY FAR THE LARGEST ANOMALY EVER RECORDED. That is significant, because scientists have tracked these waters for 62 years. In those 744 months, the recorded value has exceeded the long-term average by 1 or more Celsius degrees just five times. Three of those five times have occurred in February, March and April of this year. “Not only are we BREAKING RECORDS, BUT WE ARE SHATTERING THEM." In addition to the warm seas, other factors indicate a strong year. Sea-level pressures are generally quite low across the Atlantic now, and if that continues into hurricane season, as expected, it will enhance the likelihood of storm formation. Another consideration is the fact that El Niño, an increase of tropical temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, has now faded away. El Niño tends to increase wind shear across the Atlantic Ocean and inhibit storm formation. Forecasters say there's even a chance La Niña will develop during the latter half of hurricane season, which tends to modestly increase Atlantic hurricane activity. Scientists don't expect the Gulf oil slick to have much effect on storms. An oil sheen on top of the water would, theoretically, inhibit the evaporation that fuels storm intensification. However, as hurricanes traverse the seas they churn up a lot of water, so it seems unlikely the oil would remain on top as a hurricane eye moves across. Despite all of the factors favoring a bomber of a hurricane season, scientists say it is far from a certainty. “We don't fully understand all of the climatological parameters which resulted in the hyperactive 2005 season. Conditions prior to 2010 look similar to this time in May of 2005, but that alone isn't enough to say that 2010 will have as many named storms as 2005.”
HEAVY RAINS / FLOODING / LANDSLIDES / UNUSUAL & OUT-OF-SEASON WEATHER –
CHINA – A train derailment caused by landslides killed at least 10 people and injured another 55 people in Jiangxi Province of China early on Sunday, at around 2:10 a.m. A slow-moving cold front brought torrential rainfall to the area on Friday into Friday night. Up to 4-5 inches of rain fell in a few locations. The heaviest rain inundated higher elevations, leaving some areas vulnerable to landslides. More heavy rain will target similar areas in China by midweek as tropical moisture from Cyclone Laila surges in from the southwest. Flooding and more landslides could result. Laila made landfall in Andhra Pradesh, India, late on Thursday afternoon. The Prakasam district bore the brunt of the cyclone's heavy rainfall and high winds.
CHINA – A torrent of floods caused by heavy storms have killed 115 people in southern China, with 21 people still missing as weather reports show rains beginning to subside.
GERMANY, POLAND – Germany is preparing itself for floods in the next few days as water levels reached the critical mark. Authorities say the situation in Brandenburg will become serious by the weekend. Meanwhile emergency teams in Poland are attempting to shore up river banks as the country continues to suffer its WORST FLOODS FOR DECADES. By the end of the week German experts are forecasting water levels to reach level-3 and will remain at this level for a number of days before receding. A six-year-old girl was killed on Monday in the German state of Saxony when a tornado caused heavy damage to the town of Grossenhain. Hail storms and torrential rain also caused damage to many buildings in the region, includings residential housing and a church. At least one warehouse collapsed. If the bad weather continues the floods could continue for ten days or three weeks. It all depends whether the flood peak of the rivers Warthe and Oder meet in the Polish town of Kostrzyn.
At least 15 people have been killed in Poland in the worst floods to hit the country in over a decade. A protective barrier broke near the town of Plock on Sunday, allowing flood water into the region about 100 kilometres north-west of the capital Warsaw. Many Poles have had to flee their homes. Over 4,000 soldiers are taking part in rescue efforts around the country after Poland's largest river, the Vistula, broke its banks. The Vistula's level risks reaching 780 centimetres.
HAITI – AccuWeather.com reports heavy rain will fall on Haiti this week, raising the possibility of flooding and peril for those left homeless by the devastating earthquake this past winter. Makeshift housing in the form of tents is all that stand between Mother Nature and hundreds of thousands of people. A number of victims still have no shelter at all. Deforestation practices of the past and unstable hillsides following the quake have left some of the terrain very vulnerable to mudslides and flash flooding. An average of 5 to 10 inches of rain is forecast to fall on the region into the weekend. However, local amounts will be higher in the mountains, where runoff will be excessive. Waves of low pressure traveling along a stalled front, combined with heating of the day will allow clusters of heavy showers and thunderstorms to form over Haiti and other nearby island nations in the Caribbean.
GERMANY, POLAND – Extreme weather conditions continued to affect parts of Northern and Central Europe. Heavy rains are raising river levels to dangerous heights. One woman in Lower Austria drowned when she was swept away by flood waters. An elderly man died from a heart attack in the same region.
Germany is bracing itself for the worst as rivers in the east of the country continue to rise. Officials in Frankfurt an der Order are desperately trying to reinforce river bank defences in an effort to contain the swelling floodwaters. “On the Polish side, the situation looks much more difficult because our twin town Slubice is about two metres lower than Frankfurt. This means that when a levee breaches, we are not talking about flood levels of 50-60cm but of up to two and a half metres. This means that real damage can be expected, and that is why the mayor called on everyone to leave the town on Friday.” Officials predict the highest alert for the Oder could even be reached as early as today which may have repercussions for Berlin as the Oder feeds the river Spree which flows through the capital. Meanwhile, Poland’s low-lying Slubice, which is on the front line of any flooding from the Oder, can only hope and pray.
OIL SPILL -
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill has spewed more oil than originally estimated, surpassing the Exxon Valdez tanker disaster in 1989 in Alaska to become THE BIGGEST OIL DISASTER IN U.S. HISTORY.
'Top kill' stops gulf oil leak for now – Officials are cautionary but say drilling fluid has blocked oil and gas temporarily. Engineers plan to begin pumping in cement and then will seal the well. As of early Thursday morning, neither government nor BP officials had declared the effort a success yet, pending the completion of the cementing and sealing of the well.
The cost of garlic is on the rise. In Australia, shoppers are being charged up to $30 a kilo, or double the usual price, amid global shortages. Swine flu fears that swept China late last year created massive demand there for the bulb and its rumoured health benefits, eating into worldwide supply. Snow peas are also fetching up to $20 a kilogram after heavy rain and floods early this year delayed planting in Queensland. Many consumers are paying top dollar for cauliflower and broccoli because of a cold snap in Victoria affecting production. Rain scuppered the last of Victoria's Yarra Valley strawberry crops early. Inclement weather had also ended supermarkets' Tasmanian supply of garlic two weeks ahead of time. Some small Melbourne retailers have run out of garlic or have only organic stock left. Recent imports were quarantined, compounding supply problems. Pressures on global supply should ease from next month.
EXTREME HEAT / WILDFIRES / DROUGHT / CLIMATE CHANGE-
Scientists believe gassy mammoths helped to fill the atmosphere with methane and keep the Earth warm more than 13 thousand years ago. Experts estimate that, together with other large plant-eating mammals that are now extinct, they released about 9.6 million tonnes of the gas each year. When the megafauna disappeared there was a dramatic fall in atmospheric methane which may have altered the climate. Analysis of gases trapped in ice cores suggests that the loss of animal emissions accounted for a large amount of the decline.
MINNESOTA – Monday's heat blast: Not just a RECORD HIGH, but a RECORD-HIGH LOW. Not only was the high of 95 degrees in the Twin Cities a record-breaker, the low – 72 in the early morning hours – also broke a record. Previously, the highest low for May 24 had been 67, set in 2006. To put Monday's smothering heat in perspective: The morning LOW was 1 degree below the average HIGH for the date.
HEALTH THREATS –
22 people from 10 states have been stricken with salmonella from raw alfalfa sprouts. These incidents, along with the tragic death of an infant, spawned a nationwide recall.
Global H1N1 rate stays at low levels – Global pandemic flu activity remains largely unchanged, with the most active areas of transmission in parts of the Caribbean and Southeast Asia. Activity in temperate regions remains low to sporadic. Central Africa has been seen increased transmission of seasonal influenza type B, which is accounting for 85% of all its flu isolates. Type B flu continues at low levels in parts of Asia, Europe, and Central America.
Almost half of the 500 most popular sunscreen products may actually increase the speed at which malignant cells develop and spread skin cancer because they contain vitamin A or its derivatives, retinol and retinyl palmitate. Only 39 of the 500 products they examined were considered safe and effective to use. "In a yearlong study, tumors and lesions developed up to 21 percent faster in lab animals coated in a vitamin A-laced cream than animals treated with a vitamin-free cream." The Food and Drug Administration has known of the potential danger for as long as a decade without alerting the public, which the FDA denies. Based on the strength of the findings by FDA's own scientists, many in the public health community say they can't believe nor understand why the agency hasn't already notified the public of the possible danger. European countries have more chemical combinations to offer, but in the U.S. the major choice is between the "chemical" sunscreens, which have inferior stability, penetrate the skin and may disrupt the body's hormone systems, and "mineral" sunscreens zinc and titanium dioxide. Increasingly, the industry is using titanium dioxide that is made nanosized, which a growing number of researchers believe have serious health implications. The full list of the best and worst sunscreens can be found on the EWG's searchable database.
Tylenol recalls – criminal. An FDA official hammered the maker of Tylenol for a pattern of sloppy manufacturing practices that led to a series of recalls in testimony prepared for a House hearing on Thursday. They cited "significant violations" of manufacturing regulations by McNeil Consumer Healthcare. The drugmaker, a division of Johnson & Johnson has recalled products four times in seven months. That included a widespread recall of children's non-prescription drugs on April 30. In January, the FDA had issued a warning letter to McNeil "expressing serious concerns about the company's control over the quality of its drugs and the company's failure to aggressively investigate and correct quality problems." Upper management failed to assure timely investigation and resolution of those issues. "A potential criminal liability" exists as a result of the recalls.The FDA "is also considering additional enforcement actions against the company for its pattern of non-compliance which may include seizure, injunction or criminal penalties." The Food and Drug Administration is investigating reports of at least 775 serious side effects from drugs recalled by McNeil.
The United States is a more important hub for the global circulation of seasonal flu strains than previously thought. Over the past few years, other researchers have tagged China and Southeast Asia as tropical regions where seasonal flu strains originate. When a research group used mathematical modeling techniques incorporating gene sequence analysis to test the hypothesis, they found that the more temperate United States region also makes important contributions to the migration of seasonal flu. The findings demystify what happens to seasonal flu viruses in the United States when they appear to die out at the end of each flu season. Instead, the researchers suggest they move on to more favorable environments in South America and even beyond. Virus migration patterns that the group estimated correlate with air travel patterns between regions of the world. When the team traced the genealogical history of the viruses, they found that the "trunk" of its family tree mainly resided in China (34%) and Southeast Asia (32%), with a significant portion in the United States (24%). The findings show the last decade of meaningful virus evolution occurred primarily in those three regions. Though the group did not study influenza A H1N1 and influenza B migration patterns, they suspect they follow a similar pattern," with East and Southeast Asia playing the strongest role in the migration network but with temperate regions still making occasional, but significant, contributions." Patterns of flu virus migration could have important public health implications, as response activities in the United States can have a global impact. For example, cautious use of antiviral medications in the United States could help prevent the development of drug-resistant strains that could spread to the rest of the world. Also, vaccination programs outside of East and Southeast Asia could curb the worldwide spread of the disease. A sharper understanding of flu migration patterns could open up the possibility of tailoring vaccines to specific locations.
Signs in False Shepherds/Religion
For among them are those who worm their way into households and capture idle women burdened down with sins, led along by a variety of passions, always learning and never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. Just as Jannes and Jambres resisted Moses, so these also resist the truth, men who are corrupt in mind, worthless in regard to the faith. But they will not make further progress, for their lack of understanding will be clear to all, as theirs was also. 2 Timothy 3:6-9
