‘A global outbreak of deadly Ebola is underway and has crossed national borders. One infected victim of the horrifying disease flew on international flights, vomiting on board and exposing hundreds of people to the deadly virus which can be transmitted through airborne particles. Ebola has an 8-10 day incubation period, meaning thousands of people could be carrying it right now and spreading it across the cities of the world without even knowing it.’
‘From a mission of mercy, hospice has evolved into a $14 billion industry, increasingly run by corporate chains, and nobody gets more credit, or blame, than the Reverend Hugh Westbrook. He invented the very idea of the corporate hospice, when he and a couple of partners opened the first for-profit program, in Dallas, in 1984—right after the Medicare law he was instrumental in crafting began to pay for hospice services.
Over the next two decades, he grew the company into VITAS Innovative Hospice Care, the largest hospice chain in the United States—or anywhere, for that matter, because hospice chains do not exist abroad. In the process, Westbrook proved the unthinkable: A business can make a fortune caring for dying people.’
‘Richard Rockefeller, son of US billionaire David Rockefeller, died on Friday when his private plane crashed outside New York City.
No one else was on the plane that crashed into trees in a neighborhood near Westchester County Airport, a family spokesman and the Federal Aviation Administration said.
On Thursday, the 64-year-old had dinner with his father David at the family’s Westchester estate to celebrate the banker’s 99th birthday, said family spokesman Fraser Seitel’
‘Nuclear war has no winner. Beginning in 2006, several of the world’s leading climatologists (at Rutgers, UCLA, John Hopkins University, and the University of Colorado-Boulder) published a series of studies that evaluated the long-term environmental consequences of a nuclear war, including baseline scenarios fought with merely 1% of the explosive power in the US and/or Russian launch-ready nuclear arsenals. They concluded that the consequences of even a “small” nuclear war would include catastrophic disruptions of global climate[i] and massive destruction of Earth’s protective ozone layer[ii]. These and more recent studies predict that global agriculture would be so negatively affected by such a war, a global famine would result, which would cause up to 2 billion people to starve to death. [iii]
These peer-reviewed studies – which were analyzed by the best scientists in the world and found to be without error – also predict that a war fought with less than half of US or Russian strategic nuclear weapons would destroy the human race.[iv] In other words, a US-Russian nuclear war would create such extreme long-term damage to the global environment that it would leave the Earth uninhabitable for humans and most animal forms of life.’
‘As he lay sleeping in a muddy trench in France one night, William Bird woke to find someone shaking him. It was 1917. He’d just been through the Battle of Vimy Ridge, and he was exhausted. Irritably, he tried to pull away — but whoever it was continued to shake him with some urgency.
So Bird — a journalist in civilian life — wearily opened his eyes and, to his utter astonishment, recognised his brother, Steve, who’d been reported missing in action two years earlier.
‘Steve put his warm hand over my mouth as I started to shout my happiness,’ Bird recalled. ‘Then he pointed to the sleepers in the bivvy and to my rifle. “Get your gear,” he said.’’
‘A 3-year-old boy in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel said he was murdered with an axe in his previous life. He showed village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough they found a man’s skeleton there. He also showed the elders where the murder weapon was found, and upon digging, they did indeed found an axe there.
In his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today,” German therapist Trutz Hardo tells this boy’s story, along with other stories of children who seem to remember their past lives with verified accuracy. The boy’s story was witnessed by Dr. Eli Lasch, who is best known for developing the medical system in Gaza as part of an Israeli government operation in the 1960s. Dr. Lasch, who died in 2009, had recounted these astounding events to Hardo.
The boy was of the Druze ethnic group, and in his culture the existence of reincarnation is accepted as fact. His story nonetheless had the power to surprise his community.”
‘Thought death was clear but? A new book, Opening Heaven’s Door, will callenge your views. In the second part of our serialisation, bereaved people recall visits by dead loved ones, writes Patricia Pearson.
A humid night in summer. Ellie Black wakes at around 3am and her eyes focus on a figure at the end of her bed. It’s her father, from whom she’s long been estranged. Now fully alert, she watches him as he tips his hat and bows with a flourish. Then he’s gone.
The following morning she relates the experience to her daughter at the breakfast table. Later that day the phone rings — with news that her father died in the early hours.
A tall story? Not at all.’
‘At around 4am that morning, my father gave an audible sigh. It was loud enough to wake my mother, who sleepily assumed that he was having a bad dream.
But he wasn’t. That sigh was his final breath as he died.
No one, least of all my father, had known he was ill. As for my mother, she’d assumed he was still asleep when she rose a few hours later and had breakfast alone.
Afterwards she’d returned to the bedroom and tried, with increasing desperation, to wake him.
There was, however, one person who knew about Dad’s death well before Mum did: my sister Katharine, who lived 100 miles away and was herself suffering from terminal breast cancer.’
‘The US Department of Transportation announced Friday a consent decree with automaker General Motors over its delayed recall of vehicles with an ignition defect linked to deadly crashes. As part of the deal GM agreed to pay a derisory $35 million fine, equivalent to less than one day of revenue for the company.
The agreement wraps up an investigation of GM by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) before it had even begun. The automaker still has not fully complied with an NHTSA request for documents linked to the February recall of the 2005-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, 2003-2007 Saturn Ion, and other low cost models subject to the sudden loss of engine power, which would potentially disable power braking, power steering and airbags.
There has been no serious assessment of the true extent of the deaths or injuries stemming from the defect, nor has there been any investigation of the role of top GM management in carrying out the cover-up.’
‘People the world over have been stunned into silence by what we have done to the planet just since 911. However, this goes back much, much further to everything that was done under Clinton and GHW Bush as well. Because that’s when the Gates of Hell were opened and when we officially began to unleash this permanent reign of terror upon the world.
The concept itself began with our wars against the native population in which more than 50 million natives died, over the course of 400 years of this scorched earth policy. The slaves in the states shared the same time frame but because each slave was worth real money the numbers that died were smaller. The crimes against them were horrific just the same.
By the time that GWH Bush arrived in the oval office, having come directly from the CIA, he still had many loose-ends to finish. After he locked up Noriega in the Dry Tortugas, in Florida and after he began the Iraq war against Saddam in 1991, which were meant to destroy all evidence of his war-crimes, plus his drug-running and weapons trafficking. Bush 41 set the stage for Clinton who allowed the slaughter in Rwanda, followed by Bosnia-Herzegovina which is not even close to being rehabilitated.’
‘A mother-of-two convinced she had pancreatic cancer died from the disease after 10 months of having her fears dismissed by doctors.
Andrea Charlesworth, 43, from Ilkeston in Derbyshire began suffering from stomach pains in April last year.
When she researched her symptoms on Google and began to believe that she had either ovarian or pancreatic cancer and went straight to her doctor.’
