Hello from Italy

By American Kabuki

I've pretty much settled down to life in the alps.  First couple of weeks had trouble with nose bleeds, its not so much the altitude (we're about about 1500 meters) but the dry winter air made even dryer by wood burning stoves for heat.  I like wood fireplaces, the heat is nice and the scent of pine and hard woods is wonderful.   I lived the prior 15 years in humid beach climates and my nose spazzed out for a bit.  One day it was so bad I had to call my hosts for help as it looked like I had slashed my wrists in the bathroom as it was coming out much faster than I could stop it.   The family that owns this house loaned me a humidifier they had and the problem has pretty much gone away.

The alps here are not as high as some of the mountains in North America, this is basically the same altitude as Sedona Arizona.  I don't know why I thought they'd be taller, but the are very steep mountains and quite beautiful.

My Nokia Windows 8 phone I purchased in Tangier for Project XIII to run on will not work on Vodafone's Italian cell service.  It has German firmware, but Vodafone won't let it connect up.  I've downloaded the Italian firmware for the device and when I get a free evening I will flash and see if it works then.  It worked fine on Moroc Telecom's service so I don't know why Vodafone is so finicky about the firmware from Germany.

Caleb gave me a Motorola V8 RAZR phone and for some reason that does work here but it doesn't have all the nice internet goodies on it... nor email and  it came with Verizon firmware which I have flashed to Linux operation system build for that model, works well too but still no email...

I took a trip a couple of weeks ago to Torino and had a walk around. It has some amazing Italian architecture from the Mussolini era.  You can tell how literate people are by the number of book stores, and Torino is crammed with book sellers and music sellers.  I have not seen this many book stores since the days when I lived in the San Francisco Bay area, or in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  A lot of the books are about art, which also reveals a lot about the city and Italy in general.

I had many mistaken ideas of what Italy would be like, most of which probably came from 1950-60s movies and the stories my father told from his experiences during WWII.   I hope to get down to Naples and see that area before I leave so I have some idea of the area my dad spent a few years of the war in as a P-38 pilot.

I'll be writing more in the coming days of my experiences here it Italy and the amazing people I have met.  Living and breathing I AM in ways I have not witnessed before.  I am very happy to be able to stay with them for a while.

Spring is arriving and the alpine crocus flowers are starting to bloom purple and white flowers.   We will undoubtably get occasional snow falls for a few weeks yet but much of the snow melted in the last couple of days.

Thank you all for the help you have given over the past few months.  The donations make it possible to keep the blog going and buy some badly needed clothes and supplies.  I'd like to take some side train trips in Italy while I am here but we will see how that goes.  I cut my living expenses a great deal and will be trying out some alternative blog ad as I think Google is not being honest about the ad traffic as it has not matched total page views for some months.

A few odd things occurred the night before, and in the hours leading up to the airplane crash in Southern France – which occurred near Barcelonnette in the Alps.

A giant pulse of energy occurred on the night of the 23rd going into the 24th:

Above: Seen at the peak of the 1st blast – this large distortion covered the entire Southern Hemisphere. This blast was followed by a secondary reverberation on the 24th.

Above you can see a large pulse of energy on March 23rd followed by a secondary reverberation on the 24th. Usually we only see these kinds of large microwave distortions when an incoming upper M-class to X-class flare occurs, or a very large CME sends a blast of particles towards Earth.

Here is a recent example of a large CME hitting Earth seen on the morphed microwave composite feed:

There was only a C-class flare from the Sun recently, and nothing of any significance was ejected towards Earth from the Earth facing Sunspots.

The cause of this large pulse of energy is still ‘unknown’, however it coincides with something else worth mentioning again.

CERN and their magnet malfunction. Particularly the time of the short circuit on the mega-magnet. All reports said CERN was powering up on the 23rd.. even reports issued on the day of the 23rd said they were all green for go at CERN.

Then this pulse occurred.

Then the plane crashed.

Then CERN came out and said they haven’t been powered on since the 21st?!

We had reports all week that CERN was to begin powering up in earnest on March 23rd for an experiment on March 25th — then, 2 hours AFTER the plane crashed CERN came out with a statementsaying that they were out of commission due to a Magnet short circuit which occurred on the 21st. This is extremely odd in light ofall the media reports announcing that CERN powered up 

Above: CERN denies being powered on after the 21st .. after building the hype for their experiment all week up to the 23rd.. were they lying on the 22nd and 23rd saying all was good for the experiment or are they lying after the malfunction caused a plane to crash? Either way they lied.

On the 24th the plane crash occurred around 1pm European time.

As you can see in the animated .GIF at the top of this post , this giant pulse of energy occurred during the time frame that CERN was supposedly powering up, and having a magnet short circuit.

Considering CERN is the largest magnetic structure in the world, and considering the magnet keeps the quantum space from reaching the outside environment — if the mega-magnet fails via a short circuit, then a power surge also accompanied that magnet failure.

A power surge in the worlds biggest magnet?

Short Circuits are unintended flows of power to non-intended areas:

“A short circuit is an abnormal connection between two nodes of an electric circuit intended to be at different voltages. This results in an excessive electric current limited only by the Thévenin equivalent resistance of the rest of the network and potentially causes circuit damage, overheating, fire or explosion. Although usually the result of a fault, there are cases where short circuits are caused intentionally, for example, for the purpose of voltage-sensing crowbar circuit protectors.”

Short circuit on the 21st? Why would all media (and CERN) announce all was moving forward.. THEN come out on the 24th (2 hours after the plane crash), and tell everyone they’ve been fully off for the past several days?!

Now we have multiple questionable stories coming out saying the pilot of the plane deliberately crashed the aircraft? Magically quick release of the cockpit voice recorders? Something is not right about all of this.

I personally am of the opinion that the cover story is a smear on the pilot to cover for this CERN event.

Germanwings investigation: Links with MH370 and other crashes probed

Germanwings investigation: Links with MH370 and other crashes probed

Investigators to examine striking similarites between Germanwings disaster and the crashes of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 and Mozambique Airlines flight TM470

By Martin Evans, Crime Correspondent

2:20PM GMT 26 Mar 2015

Investigators will now be looking to see if the apparently deliberate actions by the Germanwings co-pilot were inspired by any other recent disasters including the ongoing mystery of Malaysian Airlines MH370.

French prosecutors have concluded that Andreas Lubitz put the Airbus A320 into a deliberate descent after waiting for the captain to leave the cockpit.

'We only hear screams in the last seconds. Death was instant'
What we know about pilot Andreas Lubitz

Evidence from the black box flight recorder suggests he refused to open the cockpit door and then flew the aircraft into the Alps, killing all those on board.

Suicide and mass murder remains one of the most likely theories surrounding the crash of flight MH370, which was lost without trace somewhere over the Southern Indian Ocean in March last year.

Mystery still surrounds the fate of MH370

Malaysian police have identified Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah as the prime suspect, having cleared all other passengers of any suspicious motives.

Captain Shah was reportedly having domestic problems at the time of the crash and was deeply upset following the breakdown of his marriage.

Air crash investigators will now be looking at Mr Lubitz’s background and personal situation to see if there were any indicators that he was depressed or had reason to want to take his own life.

Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz is suspected of deliberately crashing the Germanwings flight into the Alps

Pilot suicides are extremely rare but terrifyingly there is little anyone can do if the person at the controls decides to crash his aircraft.

In November 2013 Mozambique Airlines flight TM470 went down while on a routine flight between Maputo and Luanda in Angola, killing everyone on board.

There are chilling similarities between the circumstances of that crash and the German Wings disaster.

A pilot suicide led to the loss of a Mozambique Airlines flight in 2013

In the Mozambique Airlines crash the captain waited for the co-pilot to go to the bathroom before locking the cockpit door.

The black-box flight recorder revealed how the captain desperately tried to get back into the cockpit as the co-pilot put the plane into a deliberate descent from its cruising altitude of 38,000 feet.

There was no Mayday call and it was later revealed that the co-pilot had marital problems and his son had recently died.

In 1999 an Egyptair flight between New York and Cairo crashed with the loss of 217 people.

Thirty minutes after taking off the fully loaded Boeing 767 dropped from 36,000 feet to 19,000 feet in less than 30 seconds causing the aircraft to break up.

The investigation showed that pilot Gamal al-Batouti muttered an Arabic phrase often associated with the moments before death, “I rely on God,” as the autopilot was disconnected.

US investigators concluded that the accident had been caused by pilot suicide, but this was something that was disputed by the Egyptian authorities.

In 1997 a Silk Air flight crashed while flying between Jakarta in Indonesia and Singapore with the loss of all 97 passengers and seven crew.

Almost 100 people died on a Silk Air flight thought to have been the result of pilot suicide

Again the Americans concluded that the pilot had deliberately crashed the aircraft, but the Indonesian authorities said the cause of the accident could not be determined.

The aircraft, which was piloted by Singaporean Tsu Way Ming, fell from 35,000 feet into a river in one minute, a dive so fast that it reached supersonic speed before breaking up.

In 1994 a Royal Air Maroc flight crashed killing all 44 people on board, in what has since been put down to a clear case of pilot suicide and murder.

Just after take-off from Agadir, the 32-year old captain disconnected the autopilot and flew the plane into a mountainside.

In 1982 a Japanese pilot failed in his attempt to kill himself when he engaged the aircraft’s reverse thrust as he came into land causing the plane to crash into the sea.

The first officer and flight engineer tried to physically restrain him and could be heard on the cockpit voice recorder telling “Please stop” in Japanese.

Most of the 147 people on board survived, but 24 were killed.

The airline later admitted that the captain had been diagnosed with a ''psychosomatic illness'' in late 1980, but had later been pronounced fit for duty.

Night vision eyedrops allow vision of up to 50m in darkness


Night vision eyedrops allow vision of up to 50m in darkness

The eyedrops were created by a team of independent Californian biohackers


Friday 27 March 2015

It might sound like something straight out of Q’s laboratory or the latest Marvel film but a group of scientists in California have successfully created eye drops that temporarily enable night vision.

Science for the Masses, an independent “citizen science” organisation that operates from the city of Tehacapi, theorised that Chlorin e6 (Ce6), a natural molecule that can be created from algae and other green plants, could enhance eyesight in dark environments.

The molecule is found in some deep sea fish, forms the basis of some cancer therapies and has been previously prescribed intravenously for night blindness.

The average torch will allow you to see around 10 metres ahead of you

Jeff Tibbets, the lab’s medical officer, said: “There are a fair amount of papers talking about having injected it in models like rats and it’s been used intravenously since the 60s as treatments for different cancers. After doing the research, you have to take the next step.”

The next step was to moisten the eyes of biochemical researcher and willing guinea pig Gabriel Licina’s eyes with 50 microlitres of Ce6.

The effect was apparently almost instantaneous and, after an hour, he was able to distinguish shapes from 10 metres away in the dark and soon at even greater distances.

“We had people go stand in the woods,” Licina said, “At 50 metres, I could figure who they were, even if they were standing up against a tree.”

The control group without Ce6 were only able to pick out the objects a third of the time, while Licina’s success was 100 per cent.

The effect of the chemical only lasted for a few hours and the test subject's eyesight returned to normal the next day.

The organisation has released a paper that detailed the experiment in their website. It says that more research will need to be conducted to measure the actual amount of electrical stimulation increase in the eye whilst the long term effects of the procedure will require further investigation.

Tibbets says that this success is perfect demonstration of the work that his organisation conducts: “For us, it comes down to pursuing things that are doable but won’t be pursued by major corporations. There are rules to be followed and don’t go crazy, but science isn’t a mystical language that only a few elite people can speak.”

Stingray Tracking Devices: Who's Got Them?

Perhaps it because I am currenty visiting Italy, but I thought the National Guard symbol below was Fascist in origin, and sure enough it IS!  Its a combination of two Mussalini symbols for fascism, THIS and THIS... into a swastika pattern... Sheesh!   -AK


Stingray Tracking Devices: Who's Got Them?

Stingrays, also known as "cell site simulators" or "IMSI catchers," are invasive cell phone surveillance devices that mimic cell phone towers and send out signals to trick cell phones in the area into transmitting their locations and identifying information. When used to track a suspect's cell phone, they also gather information about the phones of countless bystanders who happen to be nearby. Click here for the latest ACLU news and analysis on stingrays.
