“The Epocalypse Is Here” http://rgn.bz/8YVi


by David Haggith

“Brexit- the second major landslide in the Year of the Epocalypse- has bankers all over the world scrambling to pick up and prop up their crumbled facades this week. This is one more jolt in the developing global economic collapse that I predicted for 2016. The ground of an entire nation just dropped several feet. Aftershocks from a drop that size will be felt frequently throughout the summer and to some extent for years to come.

As I’ve said before, US politicians will find it increasingly difficult this year to keep shoring up the US economy until the end of the election cycle. This collapse just made things a lot worse for them. Brexits, Grexits and other exits, oil defaults, job decay, manufacturing malaise and a host of other planet-sized problems are piling up so fast that it will become almost impossible to hold off collapse much longer as global problems press in on the US and other nations.

“We have now entered a global period of bailouts heaping up against the back of earlier bailouts and attempted recovery coming on the back of already failed recovery. Why? Because it is all the same Great Recession, and as I’ve maintained since I began this blog several years ago the “recovery” is nothing but a prop under the Great Recession’s monstrous belly. That prop, I said would fail this year, and we would slide into the abyss of an economic apocalypse in a series of jolting plunges and rallies.

As I quoted David Stockman in an earlier article, “At long last the tyranny of the global financial elite has been slammed good and hard. You can count on them to attempt another central bank based shock and awe campaign to halt and reverse the current sell-off, but it won’t be credible, sustainable or maybe even possible. The central bankers and their compatriots have well and truly over-played their hand. They have created a tissue of financial lies; an affront to the very laws of markets, sound money and capitalist prosperity. So there will be payback, clawback and traumatic deflation of the bubbles. Plenty of it, as far as the eye can see.”

Minor Galaxy Mergers Are Major Drivers of Star Formation

Around half of the star formation in the local Universe arises from minor mergers between galaxies, according to data from the Sloan Digital Sky Survey. The patch of sky called Stripe 82 is observed repeatedly to produce high-quality images of spiral galaxies. Disruptions to the shapes of these galaxies, caused by interactions with their smallest neighbors, pointed to increased star formation in a study being presented at the National Astronomy Meeting at the University of Nottingham.

A NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope view of the spiral galaxy NGC 7714, which has been dramatically distorted in shape by a close interaction with another nearby galaxy. Minor, but frequent, disturbances such as this cause a burst of star formation, accounting for around half of all new stars being formed in the local Universe.’

Archduke Franz Ferdinand Assassinated http://rgn.bz/0F9B

One of the most significant assassinations in history took place on 28th June, 1914, when Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife were gunned down in Sarajevo, Bosnia. The killings, by a Serbian nationalist, are widely considered the spark that ignited the powder keg of Europe into the First World War.

Franz Ferdinand was the nephew of Austro-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph, and heir to the throne. His death was a massive blow to the Hapsburg Dynasty, inevitably leading to retaliation which pulled the great powers of Europe into a devastating conflict.

The Archduke had accepted an invitation from the governor of the then Austrian provinces of Bosnia and Herzegovina to carry out a state visit; observing military maneuvers in the territory. With his wedding anniversary approaching, he elected to bring his wife, Sophie, along for the visit, marking one of the rare occasions in their fourteen year marriage the two would appear together in public.

Iceland Proves You Don’t Need a Politician or Businessman as President http://rgn.bz/F4U8

With admiration, many have been observing Iceland’s handling of the banking crisis that jolted the entire world in recent years. Now experiencing a unique economic recovery, the Icelandic public became aware in 2008 that the nation’s private banks had borrowed some $120 billion dollars, ten times the size of Iceland’s economy, creating an economic bubble which forced housing prices to double, and saddled the nation’s people with debt.

While other Western nations initiated bank bailouts in 2008, a popular uprising in Iceland led to a peaceful revolution against corrupt government and banks, and has since become the example for the global movement for liberation from central banking and unaccountable government.

“In the duration of five months, the main bank of Iceland was nationalized, government officials were forced to resign, the old government was liquidated, and a new government was put in its place.” [Source]

The resolve of Iceland’s people to correct the systemic problems in their government and economy was again demonstrated in 2015 when dozens of high-level financial executives were jailed for their involvement in manipulating Iceland’s financial markets after financial deregulation in 2001.

Dinosaur Eggs, Meteorites, Signs of an Ancient Civilization: What are these Giant Balls? http://rgn.bz/pz6q

Found 30 metres underground at a coal mine, they are dubbed Jurassic pearls or the marbles of a Siberian colossus. The ten spheres are around half the size of a human, a metre or so in diameter, and almost perfectly round and smooth. To add to the mystery, they change color after rain.

They were unearthed by an excavator at Sereulsky coal mine, in the Nazarovo district of Krasnoyarsk region, lying close together.

It was as if they had been carefully buried by a prehistoric giant only to be found many millennia later. Or was there some extra-terrestrial explanation to this geological curiosity now on display at the mine?

The experts have ruled out the more fantastical versions – including theories that they were manmade – and say these stone creations are a leftover from Jurassic times. The strange balls were formed by a natural process likened to the formation of pearls.

Ancient Canaanites Imported Animals from Egypt to be Sacrificed http://rgn.bz/EwxB

The skeleton of a donkey and several other animals, which were ritualistically sacrificed by Canaanites, have been found at the archaeological site of Tell el-Safi in Israel. An analysis of the animal remains revealed that the Canaanites imported the animals from the kingdom of the pharaohs for sacrificial purposes.

The Canaanites, who lived in the city of Gath 5,000 years ago, believed that the gods expected sacrifices from them. According to the latest research described by Haaretz, they were importing animals from Egypt for this purpose. The remains of a donkey and some sheep and goats, date back to the Early Bronze Age in Canaan (circa 2900-2500 BC). The research proved that the animals were born and bred in the Nile Valley and lived in the Canaanite city only briefly before their death.

Thomas Cromwell Sentenced to Death http://rgn.bz/QXym

Thomas Cromwell was sentenced to death for treason on 29th June, 1540. It marked the beginning of the end for one of the most colourful and controversial figures from the Tudor period of English history.

Achieving fame and prominence as an adviser to Henry VIII, Cromwell’s life was as diverse and divisive as that of the king he served. He played a key role in many of the events that defined Henry’s life, helping arrange several of his marriages and divorces while also playing a crucial role in shaping the English Reformation.

Cromwell’s rise to the King’s Court is all the more remarkable in the context of his ‘low born’ family. In an English society rigidly divided along class lines, he came from a working class background to gain employment in some of the highest, most prestigious offices in government, variously serving as Lord Privy Seal, Lord Chamberlain, Master of the Rolls, Secretary of State, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Earl of Essex.

Return to Antikythera Shipwreck Yields New Treasures http://rgn.bz/p1Ib

New research into the waters harboring the Antikythera shipwreck, made famous by the curious clockwork artifact discovered there in 1900, has yielded even more archaeological treasures.

The wreck, named for the Greek island it was found near in the middle of the Aegean Sea, dates back to around 65 BCE and is most well-known for the so-called “Antikythera Device” discovered within it. The device features a gear-driven mechanism that has mystified scientists for decades in regards to the true purpose behind its construction, but while the mystery of the Antikythera Device may linger this hasn’t dissuaded archaeologists from continuing to delve the wreck for new and interesting ancient artifacts.

In this case, a joint excursion from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture was able to recover some 60 new items from the wreck. These objects include decanters made from ceramic, incense or resin, pieces of marble statues, luxury glassware, gold jewelry, and a decorative bronze spear. Additionally, an artifact that might have been used by sailors to protect the ship from pirate attack has also been recovered – but in even bigger news, the wreck of a second ship has been confirmed to lay close by as well.

Ex-CIA Spy Foresees Open Source Economic and Social Revolution http://rgn.bz/YB9B

When Robert David Steele speaks, people listen. Especially those within the military and intelligence communities around the world. With his continued rhetoric on the open source everything manifesto as a way to positively transform this world for all, Mr. Steele has additionally begun discussing the world’s largest financial/gold cover-up story which has ties to JFK’s assassination and 9/11: That is, the global collateral accounts.

As a former CIA spy who has trained over 7,500 officers from over 66 countries, Robert Steele has over 18 years experience across the U.S. Intelligence community, and an additional 20 years experience in commercial intelligence and training. He is also a former Marine and he is the co-founder of the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity.

He has also written several books, which include, The Open Source Manifesto, and Intelligence For Earth: Clarity, Diversity, Integrity and Sustainability, among others.

In accord to open source everything, Robert’s motto is: The truth at any cost, lowers all other costs.

Essentially, when information, technology and resources are opened up as the commons to all, the true cost plummets and the well-being of our planet and all living beings here begin to thrive, as well as our social, political and financial systems.

Big Food Seeks to Exempt Itself from the Freedom of Information Act http://rgn.bz/xaFe

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food,” the famous quote attributed to Hippocrates, is probably more important today than ever before as a handful of corporations, dubbed Big Food, gain more control over the food industry. Hippocrates’ statement brings up a very complex question:

Is food as ‘healthy’ as it used to be, and can it still effectively protect and heal the human body?

Consider that, today, what we call food isn’t always real food. It is produce and meat products full of pesticides, herbicides, hormones, antibiotics, and/or GMOs. Or it is pantry food products filled with additives, chemicals, preservatives, industrial by-products, and other non-food ingredients. In order to identify real food, shoppers must look for certification labels that help identify foods that are organic, non-GMO, grass-fed, unpasteurized, without hormones, etc.

The shift in the food industry towards chemical-laden products has allowed food corporations to create products that last longer, look better, and taste better to certain consumers. Certain chemicals in food products can be powerful enough to cause a physiological response in the body to create cravings, and even food addictions, and are used exactly for this purpose. Some additives, such as hormones and antibiotics, are used to support an expanding industrialized food production system. They are destroying small farms and humane farming practices in the process, while decreasing the quality and nutritional value of the end product…the food.

The Diamond Sutra: The Oldest Known Printed Book in the World http://rgn.bz/Jo9F


The Vajracchedika Prajnaparamita Sutra has been translated from Sanskrit into English variously as the Diamond Sutra, the Diamond Cutter Sutra, the Vajra Sutra and the Vajra Cutter Sutra. This sutra (a Sanskrit word that means a religious teaching or sermon, in particular that of the Buddha) is commonly regarded as one of the most revered texts of Mahayana Buddhism. A copy of this sacred text, which was discovered in the Mogao Caves of Dunhuang, China, has been described as being “the world's earliest complete survival of a dated printed book”.

The Diamond Sutra is part of a larger canon of early Mahayana sutras known as the Prajnaparamita (meaning ‘Perfection of Wisdom’) Sutras. Another well-known sutra in this canon is the Heart Sutra. According to Mahayana Buddhist legend, these sutras were dictated by the Gautama Buddha to his various disciples. These sacred teachings were then kept hidden for 500 years, and is said to have only been discovered when mankind was prepared to learn from them. Scholars, however, are of the opinion that this canon was not created over a few years, but over the centuries

A Star Is About To Go 2.5% The Speed Of Light Past A Black Hole http://rgn.bz/S1oe

Since it was first discovered in 1974, astronomers have been dying to get a better look at the Supermassive Black Hole (SBH) at the center of our galaxy.

Known as Sagittarius A*, scientists have only been able to gauge the position and mass of this SBH by measuring the effect it has on the stars that orbit it. But so far, more detailed observations have eluded them, thanks in part to all the gas and dust that obscures it.

Luckily, the European Southern Observatory (ESO) recently began work with the GRAVITY interferometer, the latest component in their Very Large Telescope (VLT). Using this instrument, which combines near-infrared imaging, adaptive-optics, and vastly improved resolution and accuracy, they have managed to capture images of the stars orbiting Sagittarius A*.

And what they have observed was quite fascinating. One of the primary purposes of GRAVITY is to study the gravitational field around Sagittarius A* in order to make precise measurements of the stars that orbit it. In so doing, the GRAVITY team – which consists of astronomers from the ESO, the Max Planck Institute, and multiple European research institutes – will be able to test Einstein’s theory of General Relativity like never before
