and just to mix it up, if you need a laugh– Poor translations
Yesterday was World Ocean’s Day and here are a couple of stories highlighting the issue of plastic ……
‘The Helmholtz Centre in Leipzig, Germany, estimated that 75% of land-borne marine pollution comes from just 10 rivers, predominantly in Asia.’
Reducing the plastic loads in these rivers by 50% would reduce global plastic inputs by 37%, it said.
US attack on Syria – seems like a false flag event designed to impose a solution on a country in tatters after 6 years of civil war
Luckily North Korea didn’t blow off a nuke on their founder’s anniversary after being warned by China and the US , they opted instead to do a missile test which failed...nevertheless they appear to be prepped to blow one up soon

The deal that ignited an uprising…that you’ve probably never heard of…in 2009 a South Korean company, Daewoo, tried to buy half of Madagascar’s arable land for 99 years (they would have mowed down all of the forest to grow corn and biofuels)…..unbelievable! good on the people for rising up and putting a stop to it
The realities of power and change- Google woos Republicans- after years of Democrat bias– money still flows to both parties though- big corps always have their pulse on the lever of power wherever they may land…….
JEFTA- another corporate trade deal being worked on in the background, between Japan and the EU…..of course with the EU showing cracks in unity and more and more countries wanting independence from the bureaucracy this may end up being a no-go anyways….
One wonders if this story was released to get people even more apathetic about security and to give up on any hope of privacy…..
Europe considering nuclear deterrant…. just lovely
Here are the stories and issues that caught my eye these last few weeks….
Fake news has become a trending phrase recently and although it always has existed , it’s funny to see it finally enter the mainstream consciousness. Perhaps this means we really are finally waking up…..now we have another trend… fake friends
In Japan people actually hire fake friends to attend events (pumping up social media numbers) so they don’t feel so lonely and are not seen as having few real friends…..bizarre
Crystal caves in Mexico are very hot & wondrous ……”It is tear inducingly beautiful down there. I wrote several poems about it actually.” Dr. Boston . The caves hold some of the largest crystals in the world mostly selenite
China’s garbage issues esp regarding incineration (which creates dioxins, etc. that end up accumulating at the north and south poles) for more on that phenomenon check out ‘Cold, Clear, and Deadly’ by Melvin Visser
Contrary to popular belief, not all Trump stands for is bad but much is…. and the two main issues that have the broadest impact are nuclear proliferation and the environment………More nukes! Stronger nukes! Trump’s talk of being top dog with nukes is insanity…..also the evisceration of environmental protection is concerning
Deep sea mining for rare-earth metals being considered despite concerns– the addiction to technology is a tough nut to crack
China bans carfentenil– a good move to stop a hideous drug epidemic- sadly the people pumping out these drugs seems to be able to produce new substances far faster than authorities can enact laws to stop them…but that is whole other issue….
What’s going on in the world?
Also from globalresearch….Washington behind India’s demonetization project
