Thousands in Gulf Suffer from Misdiagnosed Skin Lesions

Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana—Area residents have begun to show up at clinics and hospitals with mysterious scabs and pustules covering their extremities, as reported from residents to non-profit relief organizations in the Gulf.

One thirty-three year-old woman, who wished to remain anonymous, has disclosed to Project Gulf Impact that upon seeking medical advice at a clinic, she was told she had scabies. Hours later, she was told by an area hospital that she had a staph infection. The woman was treated with a shot of penicillin and Elimite cream, a topical agent for the treatment of scabies mite infestations, and an oral antibiotic. In addition to the lesions, the woman reported aching bones, weight loss, stomach pains, inflammation in her leg and sties developing in her eyes.

Lesions, like those featured above, are being experienced
by adults and children in Louisiana.

Other residents have shown up at local doctors and area hospitals reporting similar symptoms. According to area residents suffering from the mysterious rash, patients feel like they are not being given the proper medical treatment. Doctors have told area patients they are suffering from scabies with no clear diagnosis and from Staphylococcus infections with no underlying cause.

Exposure to chemicals, such as those being used to break down oil in the region, like the dispersant, Corexit, may be the cause of such infections. Corexit is an agent that has been proven to break down lipid membranes, which cover and protect human skin. Human skin is composed of a thin layer of lipids and Corexit, by nature, breaks down these organized barriers into smaller individual molecules allowing the barrier to become permeable to pathogens. The skin irritation could be caused by prolonged exposure to these chemicals and could break down the ability of the body to fight off infection.

Economic conditions in the Gulf have left many people without health insurance, leaving them with little recourse in terms of medical care. Noted Marine toxicologist and Exxon Valdez survivor Riki Ott first reported the effects of dispersants on July 7, 2010 in The Huffington Post.

ANCIENT ALIENS: The Complete Video Playlist Series!

Is it possible that extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations? Explores the shocking theory that ancient Earth was visited by aliens in the following video playlist that encapsulates the entire Ancient Aliens series from the History Channel.

ANCIENT ALIENS: Chariots, Gods & Beyond!
What if life on Earth began in outer space? Millions of people accept the theory that intelligent life forms visited Earth thousands of years ago and were worshiped as gods by primitive man. Are monuments like Stonehenge and Easter Island the last remains of an ancient alien visitation? From unexplainable super structures, to knowledge of the solar system, mathematics, and even the ability to make electricity, this special explores evidence of super-human influences on ancient man and embarks on an around-the-world search for answers. It's an investigation into a theory some believe cannot be true, but many agree cannot be ignored.

If ancient aliens visited Earth, what was their legacy, and did they leave behind clues that exist in plain sight such as sophisticated aircraft, complex electrical grids, and intricate construction machinery? Indian Sanskrit texts, dating back to 6000 B.C., describe in varying but vivid detail flying machines called Vimanas. Megalithic stone structures in Egypt reveal evidence of precision saw work. Interpretations of the Jewish Zohar writings offer depictions of a life-sustaining manna machine, eerily similar to chlorella algae processing systems today. Are these examples of modern technology, or is there evidence that these incredible mechanisms existed on Earth thousands of years ago?

If ancient aliens visited Earth, who were they, and where did they come from? Possible historic evidence and beliefs are examined around the world. The Dogon people possess knowledge of a galaxy they claim was given to them by a star god named Amma. The Hopi and Zuni people celebrate Kachinas, gods from the sky, whose headdresses and costumes appear to resemble modern helmets and protective clothing. Halfway around the world, Chinese legends tell of the Han leader, Huangdi, arriving on Earth on a flying, yellow dragon. Was this dragon more likely a spacecraft? Ancient astronaut theorists believe that these are far from chance encounters and that extraterrestrials not only interacted with us, but changed the course of human history.

If ancient aliens visited Earth, what was their mission, and is there evidence that points to when they will return? Ancient Sumerian tablets describe an alien race, known as the Anunnaki, who came to Earth to mine for gold. Egyptian hieroglyphs depict hybrid creatures that were part man, part animal. Mysterious crop circles and unexplainable crystal skulls are thought to contain messages that man has yet to decipher. Strange evidence may exist in multiple cultures throughout history suggesting that aliens came here to explore, excavate raw materials, experiment on human beings, and even for pure conquest.

ANCIENT ALIENS: Closer Encounters!
Reports of encounters with strange beings and sightings of mysterious objects in the sky have occurred throughout history. A 13th century historical book, Otia Imperialia, includes an account of a creature descending from a flying craft over Bristol, England. The log from Christopher Columbus' first voyage to America contains a report of strange lights in the sky. Medieval art pieces depict disc-shaped objects floating in the heavens. Sightings of flying cigar-shaped crafts were reported during the Black Plague. And there were even discussions of extraterrestrial life among America's Founding Fathers. Could these sightings, coming from every part of the world, from biblical times to present day, be evidence that aliens have been with us all along?

There is evidence that suggests we experienced 20th century alien contact. In 1942, the Battle of Los Angeles involved the US military and Air Defense allegedly fighting a UFO. WWII Allied Air Force planes were buzzed by balls of light that some think could have been extraterrestrial. And the alleged crash of a flying saucer in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947 propelled the world into the age of UFOs. For decades, some people have been searching for the sounds of extraterrestrial intelligence, while others have been sending messages out into deep space. What would happen if aliens answered... or came calling? What protocols exist to determine who would speak on behalf of mankind, and how might we communicate? What happens if they return? Some believe they already have. - The History Channel.

Warning to BP: Stop the Relief Wells Or a Much Larger Catastrophe is Looming!

I issue a serious warning to BP: Stop it right now, do NOT drill the last few feet of the relief wells. Do NOT punch that hole through. Think it through very carefully! If you proceed to puncture that hole through to the original well, it opens up a Pandora's Box which could lead to a much bigger catastrophe than you have ever bargained for!

BP must pause now and invite all experts for a good debate on exactly what could happen. Build a physical model and test on it. It's foolhardy for BP to just proceed and gamble for a success. Because the worst that could happen is not just another failure, but rather a much bigger catastrophe.

BP explains how a relief well works. Basically you drill another well which intercept and punch through to the casing of the original well, at a point 18000 feet deep, or 135,000 feet below the sea floor. Then heavy mud is injected through the relief well to near the bottom of the original well. The mud will then fill up the original well. Since the density of the mud is heavy it counters the pressure of the oil and gas in the original well, hence stops the flow. Once the flow is stopped the well can be sealed off using cement.

It sounds simple. But due the the extreme depth of the well and the extreme pressure from the reservoir, a lot of technical details makes the plan virtually impossible to work. It could actually cause a catastrophe instead.

There are two possible catastrophes: One is the mud either gets blown out of the blwout well diluted by the oil and gas, or continuously seep down into the underground rock formation, hence wasted. When enough mud is wasted and BP has no more mud at hand, the oil and gas will browing out and explode at the rigs that is drilling the relief wells.

A much bigger catastrophe would be if BP has too much mud, and the mud keeps seeping into the underground rock formation. It damages the rock formation and eventually cracks the sea floor, leading a catastrophic release of gas and oil which is impossible to contain. That is a dooms day scenary.

Under the scenary that Matthew Simmons and many others have discussed, i.e., if the well casing has been damaged or the rock formation at the bottom of the well is already damaged, then relief well will not work. I will not repeat that technical discussion. I will discuss under the best scenary we can hope for, the casing is intact, and show that why the relief well will not work.

The intercept point at 18,000 feet below is not exactly at the bottom of the original well, but some where above the bottom. There will be two flow of materials meeting at the intercept point, and three possible paths where the flows can go: There is the flow of heavy mud from the relief well, and oil and gas up from the underround reservoir. The three paths are either back up into the relief well; going up through the original well; or going down back into the reservoir and rock formation.

It all depends on the balance of pressure, and how fast BP can pump the mud down.

The path of least resistance is up through the original blowout well. Both the oil and gas, and now mixed with the mud, will continue to gush out of the blowout well.

The flow out of the blowout well will only stop if the material within the blowout well is replaced with mostly mud, injected at interception point through the relief well, and that the mud column is heavy enough to generate a counter pressure which matches the pressure at the interception point.

To be able to inject mud into the interception point through the relief well, the mud column plus the pumping pressure must be able to generate a pressure, at the interception point, far bigger than the pressure from the underground reservoir. If the pressure is merely equal to the pressure of oil and gas at the junction point, then only a portion of the mud will enter the junction point and come out of the blowout well together with oil and gas. In such case, the mixture ratio depends on the opening of the hole, and the cross-section of the well casing of the well. For example if the hole is 7 inch in diameter and the well casing is also 7 inch in diameter, you will get a 50/50 mix of mud and oil/gas. The mud is thus diluted and won't be able to generate enough counter weight to stop the flow.

Let's call the pressure in the oil/gas reservoir P0. Now consider the junction point pressure generated by oil/gas flow from the reservoir. First there is a free flowing pressure, let's call it P2. Then, once the flow from below stops, there is a static pressure P1. Please note, P1 >> P2. That's because for the oil to seep through the cracks in the rocks to enter the well and gush out, it takes certain amount of pressure to overcome the resistance. The pressure it takes to push oil through the rock formation equals to the difference (P1-P2).

Now when the mud fills up the relief well and gets injected into the junction point, there are two pressures of the mud at the junction point. There is a static pressure Pa, when the mud is not flowing. There is also a free flowing pressure Pb, when the mud gushes into the blowout well to fill up the well and push the oil/gas out, replacing it with the mud. Please note, Pa >> Pb. When the mud is freely flowing, part of the pressure is needed to overcome the resistance and push the mud through at high rate. The extra pressure it takes to push the mud through into the blowout well equals to (Pa - Pb).

For both the mud and oil/gas flow, the statis pressure (when it is not flowing) is always much higher than the free flowing pressure. When it's flowing, part of the pressure is lost along the path, to overcome the resistance.

We need to guarantee that Pb >= P1, because the mud flow must stop the flow of oil/gas from underground, so it must be higher than the static pressure from the underground source.

But at the same time, we also need to make sure that the mud does not flow down into the rock formation, because that will damage the rock formation and eventually depleting the mud. That means while the mud finally stops flowing, it does not exceed the static pressure from the underground source: Pa <= P1

Such requirements are impossible to obtain. We have:

1.Pa >> Pb
2.Pb >= P1
3.Pa <= P1

All three conditions can not be meet at the same time. It's logically impossible.

But then they do not need to be meet at the same time. Condition 1 and 2 are required while the mud is being pumped into the relief well. But condition 3 can be meet while the mud pump is shut down, so we can reduce the pressure Pa by the pump pressure, Pp. The three conditions are re-written like this:

1.Pa >> Pb
2.Pb >= P1
3.(Pa-Pp) <= P1

Still consider the pump pressure Pp is only 1000 PSI, less than 1% of the typical junction pressure P1 or P2. There is no way BP can do it. They will end up having a mud not heavy enough to satisfy condition 1 and 2, hence fail to fill the blowout well with the mud. or they may have a mud that too heavy to satisfy condition 3, causing the mud to continously seep into the rock formations, cracking the rock formation and eventually deplete all available mud, at which point all bets are off.

More over, the more sticky the mud is, the higher the value (Pa -Pb) will be, and the harder to meet all three conditions.

I predict that BP's relief wells are not going to be successful.

A MORE SERIOUS warning to BP: If the relief wells fail as I predicted, do NOT resort to the desperate act of using nuclear options. If you use nuclear option, there is a good possibility it will trigger chain reaction of methane eruption on a global scale, wiping out virtually ALL LIFE on earth!!! ... is-Looming!

Why BP is Readying a 'Super Weapon' to Avert Escalating Gulf Nightmare

Nuclear bomb

Chicago - In a desperate attempt to stop a huge area of the Gulf ocean floor from possibly rupturing due to subterranean methane gas (leading to a calamity no human has ever seen) BP has ripped a page from science fiction books.

The giant oil company is now quietly preparing to test a small nuclear device in a frenzied rush against time to quell a cascading catastrophe. If successful they will have the capability to detonate a controlled fusion generated pulse.

While the world watches BP's attempt to contain the oil gusher at the former Deepwater Horizon site, company officials have given the green light on an astounding plan to use what is known as a nuclear EPFCG charge if all else fails.

Sea floor compromised

Reports still indicate that methane is flooding the Gulf waters at a rate one million times more than normal, and the NOAA research vessel, Thomas Jefferson has reported spotting new fissures.[1]

Last week the science ship stunned some reporters with the revelation that the oceanographic team had discovered and measured a rift in the ocean floor miles from the BP wellhead. The rift was reported to be more than 100 feet long and widening. Oil and methane continues to plume from that rift.

BP has also admitted damage beneath the sea floor

The Omega plan

Most enterprises - whether business, government, or exploration - have a Plan B to fall back on. To date, BP has attempted Plans B through N. Yet it is the last ditch plan-the Omega plan-that hold the greatest risk. Yet that plan may be the final hope to stop what some insiders now consider a catastrophe that could culminate with a world-killing mass extinction event that modern civilization could not survive.
At a super-secret security base-CFB Suffield-located in southern Alberta, Canada, area reports indicate that high level engineers, physicists and military scientists are feverishly working to complete an 'explosively pumped flux compression generator' (EPFCG).

According to published scientific papers [see sources below] an EPFCG generator can be powered by a very small, controlled fusion explosion-in other words, a tiny nuclear bomb.

Why the UK based BP has set up operations at CFB-Suffield is obvious: The company already runs three oil rigs on the base, have worked with Canada's chemical and biological efforts on and off for almost 40 years, and have strong ties to the Commonwealth's infrastructure.

The CFB Base, which incorporates DRDC Suffield, is one of research six Canadian military facilities and critical to the security of the country. DRDC Suffield is the lead facility for all of Canada's engineering and weapons systems R&D.

The EPFCG - a Star Wars super weapon

A device that can only be used once, the EPFCG generates a high power electromagnetic pulse. It achieves this by using a powerful explosive, preferably nuclear. Advanced, nuclear driven EPFCGs can instantaneously create up to billions of amperes and hundreds of terawatts. Such raw power exceeds lighting bolts by huge orders of magnitude.

The pulse can be shaped and directed and used to knock out electronics-or more importantly in this case - to fuse virtually any material - including crumbling rock strata deep under the sea. The fantastically energized pulse can also compress objects to very high pressures and densities.[3]

According to engineers familiar with the technology, the devices can generate plasma arcs hotter than the surface of the sun that will melt and fuse materials in nanoseconds.

A special security force manned by members of AEGIS, a UK based paramilitary security corporation similar to the old US Blackwater Security company, is reported to have cordoned off the base. The security lid has clamped down hard while the engineers and scientists work with the nuclear materials.

BP's secret Omega Plan kicked off in earnest on July 7th, 2010. According to sources on the base the British Geological Survey (BGS), the United States Geological Survey (USGS), BP and Halliburton have set up a test site at one of the drill rigs.

While the plan would admittedly only be executed if a worst case scenario seemed imminent, some geo-chemists have expressed concerns that detonating an EPFCG in the Gulf might ignite the methane.

Meanwhile the preparations for the test continue in Canada.

Empty Store Shelves Coming to America

July 13, 2010

Empty Store Shelves Coming to America

The National Inflation Association today issued a warning to all Americans that empty store shelves will likely be coming to America as a result of government price controls during the upcoming hyperinflationary crisis. This morning, NIA released a video preview of what hyperinflation will look like in the U.S. This extremely important must see video is now available on NIA's video page.

NIA's six-minute video released today goes into detail about an event that took place just outside of Boston, Massachusetts in May of this year. This story was widely ignored by the nationwide mainstream media, but NIA believes it was one of the most important news events of the first half of 2010. Although this particular crisis in Boston was due to decaying infrastructure, NIA believes a currency crisis will lead to the same type of panic on a nationwide basis.

NIA hopes that this video serves as a wake-up call for Americans to take the necessary steps to prepare for hyperinflation and become educated about the U.S. economy. In Zimbabwe during hyperinflation, Zimbabweans were forced to transact in gold and silver. It's only a matter of time before the U.S. dollar becomes worthless and the only Americans with wealth will be those who own gold and silver.

Citizens of Boston were able to survive their recent crisis with the help of the National Guard, but the National Guard won't be there for Americans during hyperinflation. 40.2 million Americans are currently living off of food stamps, but food stamps won't have any purchasing power during hyperinflation. The United States' day of reckoning is ahead. We cannot go on living with record budget deficits and accelerating national debt growth forever.

Just yesterday it was announced that for the first time ever, a major credit ratings agency has given China a higher credit rating than the U.S. While most credit ratings agencies including Moody's, Standard & Poor’s and Fitch Ratings still rate U.S. debt as AAA, NIA believes the real credit rating of the U.S. should be junk. The only way one could possibly justify a U.S. credit rating of AAA is by taking into account the Federal Reserve's ability to monetize our debt through inflation. However, printing money to pay off debt is a lot worse than defaulting on it. Inflation is very deceptive, it destroys the value of savings while transferring wealth from the poor and middle class to the rich.

The U.S. has a budget deficit just from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid alone. NIA urges President Obama to implement dramatic cuts to these entitlement programs immediately, while simultaneously reducing the size of government across the board. Time is growing short for Obama to rein in government spending. The longer Obama waits to reverse course, the harder it will be for the U.S. to recover from the calamity that is about to unfold.

Please forward this message to everybody you know. It is essential to the well-being of all your family members and friends that they watch our new video entitled "Empty Store Shelves Coming to America" by going to:

Methane in Gulf "astonishingly high": U.S. scientist

CHICAGO | Tue Jun 22, 2010 6:58pm EDT
CHICAGO (Reuters) - As much as 1 million times the normal level of methane gas has been found in some regions near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, enough to potentially deplete oxygen and create a dead zone, U.S. scientists said on Tuesday.
Texas A&M University oceanography professor John Kessler, just back from a 10-day research expedition near the BP Plc oil spill in the gulf, says methane gas levels in some areas are "astonishingly high."

Kessler's crew took measurements of both surface and deep water within a 5-mile (8 kilometer) radius of BP's broken wellhead.
"There is an incredible amount of methane in there," Kessler told reporters in a telephone briefing.

In some areas, the crew of 12 scientists found concentrations that were 100,000 times higher than normal.

"We saw them approach a million times above background concentrations" in some areas, Kessler said.

The scientists were looking for signs that the methane gas had depleted levels of oxygen dissolved in the water needed to sustain marine life.

"At some locations, we saw depletions of up to 30 percent of oxygen based on its natural concentration in the waters. At other places, we saw no depletion of oxygen in the waters. We need to determine why that is," he told the briefing.

Methane occurs naturally in sea water, but high concentrations can encourage the growth of microbes that gobble up oxygen needed by marine life.

Kessler said oxygen depletions have not reached a critical level yet, but the oil is still spilling into the Gulf, now at a rate of as much as 60,000 barrels a day, according to U.S. government estimates.

"What is it going to look like two months down the road, six months down the road, two years down the road?" he asked.

Methane, a natural gas, dissolves in seawater and some scientists think measuring methane could give a more accurate picture of the extent of the oil spill.

Kessler said his team has taken those measurements, and is hoping to have an estimate soon.
"Give us about a week and we should have some preliminary numbers on that," he said.

Free Fall - States Dodge Defaults as California May Cut Worker Pay

Illinois let $5 billion of bills go unpaid. Washington closed state offices. California may cut 200,000 workers’ pay to the minimum wage. Minnesota is delaying tax refunds for a second year. 

As fiscal 2011 budgets took effect July 1, state and local governments coping with revenue declines from an economic slowdown are fulfilling legal obligations to balance their books by shaving costs and raising taxes to protect a key constituency: owners of $2.8 trillion of municipal bonds. 

“States have taken all measures so far to make sure they keep capital markets open by honoring their debt payments,” said Richard Ciccarone, a managing director for McDonnell Investment Management LLC in Oak Brook, Illinois, which owns $7 billion of municipal bonds. “They are doing everything they can.” 

States cut spending by $74 billion since 2008 and more than half raised taxes and fees in 2009, the National Association of State Budget Officers said. That’s as the worst economy since the 1930s sent May unemployment as high as 14 percent in Nevada, topping the 9.5 percent U.S. rate, and deflated real estate values. As a result, state revenue fell $95 billion, or 12 percent, from September 2008 to the end of 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, pushing tax collections to 2006 levels.

2010 International Crop Circles Conference in England CANCELLED following attempts to dictate the program.

This comes directly from the father of the term "Crop Circle:

The Future Is Underway:

“Power Places Tours Program Directors were contacted by Michael Glickman and Gary King who were also speaking at the conference, insisting that I be removed from the ticket or they would not present. Power Places Tours Directors refused to do this, deciding instead to cancel the entire Conference".

The situation we find ourselves in is not unexpected. It fits perfectly into the discussion of “2012” and the transitional period we are in. This is a time when old structures of deceit and manipulation are failing. Transformation into new and better structures for the future is underway. What the future will look like depends on what we create in the actions and decisions we make today. It depends on freedom of thought, freedom of information and freedom of spirit. This is what my research has been based on.

The Future is taking effect as old feathers fall by the wayside – "2012" and beyond gives great hope for our children.

Power Places Tours have never experienced anything like this before nor have I. It’s extraordinary to consider that an institution that has engaged high caliber people to dialogue and present for them such as His Holiness, the Dala Lama, Mrs. Anwar Sadat, Gregg Braden, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many others, would be dictated to in this fashion.

George Ure on VERITAS: Urban Survival - 1/8

S y n o p s i s

During George Ure's first appearance on Veritas we discussed many topics, including the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, the economy, possible war with Iran, and more importantly, what you can do to weather this confluence of events. The future belongs to those who prepare. It's not fear mongering; it's thinking ahead. George analyzes data on a daily basis and projects the future. This is common sense advice to anyone who may be affected by all the scenarios developing; especially November 2010.

B i o

George Ure has been a renaissance man type since he left the corporate world in 2002 after stints as a big city news director, vice president of an international airline, battery state of charge instrumentation marketing guru and software strategic planner. In addition to an MBA, George is equally comfortable on a tractor, doing plumbing and wiring, flying airplanes and writing about his long-time love…something called “long wave economics”. To say his outlook on the next few years is grim understates the short-term outlook for bad, bad, and worse. But he shares with others (like Dr. Jack Lessinger’s work) the outlook for a much better world sometime after 2020 when “responsible capitalism arrives and the end of “little King” capitalism (me…me…me…damn it, it’s all about ME!) capitalism dies off from the weight of its own compounding sins….” provides daily business news analysis and financial market coverage from the long wave (longwave) economic perspective. Since 1996, the site has expressed the view that traditional constant-expansion corporate business models would all collapse some day and that we'd eventually be forced to move toward green (sustainable) business models - the new economics of responsible capitalism - or perish.

He has quickly become a favorite speaker at expos and UFO conventions. His words resonate with truth. People receive answers to far more questions than they could ever think to ask, and they come back to hear him again and again. morning sky has been subjected to several burglaries at his office with confidential files and computer equipment stolen. His travel trailer was vandalized. His life has been threatened. He has suffered great losses, but he made a promise to his grandfather, and that promise will not be broken, no matter the cost. In his own words: "My name is Robert Morning Sky. I am a nobody, I am no one special. I am, however, a dancer who has had the extraordinary privilege of performing an honoring dance for the ‘ancient ones’ of the world at literally dozens of sacred sites. To perform these honorings in the right way, I have studied the oldest scriptures and words of the ‘ancient ones’. To distinguish the miraculous from the natural phenomena of the world, I have had to study different science disciplines, the way the human mind works, and the many kinds of shamanism and magic of the ancient world. What I have found is astonishing. The future of our world is in the hands of our young ‘seekers’. In the hopes that I can help today’s young ‘seekers’ join hands with the ‘ancient ones’, I share my journeys with you. “the truth is hidden behind the ‘reality’ used to control the masses...” “There were many reasons that led to my eventual decision to withdraw from the speaker’s circuit as soon as my one-year commitment to my grandfather was complete. When the year was over, I began my journeys to visit ancient sacred sites and to pay my respects to the ‘ancient ones’. I also began to search out those individuals, both civilized and primitive, who could help me in my search for answers to the mysteries of the world. Truly, in many cases, I went into the ‘shadows’: hidden canyons, hidden ruins, hidden corridors in civilized institutions and hidden back rooms for conversations with individuals who did not want their identities revealed.”
