Freedom of Speech: Always Knew We'd Get Back There

All of the time that has passed, when I've known our voices were being quashed, quieted, killed.  Now, with this, I truly believe there is HOPE.  The truth should be told no matter how scared you might be of the repercussions.  The WORLD must know.  We should ALL be able to speak our minds, and not fear the end result.  OUR GOVERNMENT.

Thanks "guardian" for moving and shaking.

M.E.O.W. Monumental Expression of Writers: A New Yorker Times Collaboration
Monumental Expression of Writers
The New Yorker Times is presently poised to begin making a difference in the lives of authors, journalists, poets, and literary critics of our universe. The time has finally arrived for us to galvanize the hopes of our inspirational creative community, in an effort to maximize our individual and collective interest. The time has come for us to seize upon today’s technological advances in communications; to collectively employ social networking resources and complete the paradigm shift started by our predecessors. A shift that has motivated interest in the common plight of ordinary men and women.
The power of change has always resided in the imaginative hands of creative thinkers and messengers of our universe, and it’s time we arm ourselves with this axiomatic truth. We are the content producers. We have given birth to revolutions, scientific discovery, literary inventions and technological advancements. We are the primary instruments of communication, and a world without our fundamental contribution would arguably wonder in darkness. Thus, as writers, it is time for us to not only talk about ways to improve the quality of our life, it’s time for us to collectively take an active role.
The New Yorker Times is committed to action; action fueled by ideas and ideals of a culturally diverse artistic authorial world community.  This is a clarion call to all writers of all nationalities, all cultures across the terrestrial surface to participate. It’s a chance for us to collectively make a difference, and enhance the quality of our individual lives.
The first step in launching NewYorkerTimes.com seeks the input of writers across the globe.  Your contribution will be fashioned into a monumental expression that communicates a sense of collective and individual purpose and inspiration. You will be asked to answer one question: “What is the most important thing individuals seek?” Secondly, you will be required to limit your answer to one short paragraph. The finished product will be inclusionary, as it will contain an edited collection of all submissions.
The collective product may ultimately become known as, “The Model,” or “The Human Model.” Why call it, “The Model?” Because at the very root of every model imagined was an author. Thus, we thought it appropriate to take a firm stand and stake out our claim to the name, as writers are the primary source to all news, information, entertainment and inspiration literature. In other words, such a title will remind us of the power we intrinsically possess.
The initial document that will be published two weeks before New Yorker Times is formally launched to the world. It will be updated on a monthly basis. As more and more writers make inspired contributions, their ideas will be integrated. This ever evolving product will be published in both “The Guardian Express” and New Yorker Times online publications, and it will guide us in our efforts to provide writers with a platform where their voices may be heard.
In addition, “The Model” will not only serve readers on the front page of our online publications it will also be published in the quarterly print version of the New Yorker Times Magazine.
This clarion call to action begins now. Join our dynamic and sociable news media network, not as an onlooker but as an important artistic participant. The New Yorker Times offers its members and readers a comprehensive social network along with an Artist’s Review experience unlike anything ever offered on the internet. Artists such as musicians, singers, dancers, actors, painters, models, designers, authors, writers and many others, now have the opportunity to participate in the creation of a collaborative movement that seeks to highlight up-and-coming artistic talent.
What are we?
The New Yorker Times is a platform designed to enhance the reach of the artist on a worldwide scale, while also providing breaking news and information important to members of  not only the entertainment industry, but the world at large. Although our primary focus is on all members of the creative arts community, the founders of the New Yorker Times will initially emphasize up-and-coming writers capable of producing content in the following areas:
Fiction,
Non-fiction,
Novels,
Investigative journalism,
Personal essays,
Autobiographical essays,
Critique of a published source,
Historical times context essays,
Science articles or reports,
Business articles or reports,
Ghost stories,
Myths,
Tall tales,
Fairy tales,
Local news reports,
Newspapers or magazine features
Human interest stories,
Obituaries,
Eulogies,
Tributes,
Gossip articles,
Articles covering entertainment and/or the Tech industry.
The organization is keen on building a social community where artist and artist lovers can freely display and exchange the fruit of their creative labor; subject to peer evaluation and governed by an appreciation of the freedoms inclusivity engenders.
The company is headquartered in Las Vegas, NV and is a subsidiary of CC Marketing & Advertising, LLC.
You can become a member of our social community by registering at newyorkertimes.com. For those interested in hard daily news visit our sister site at ‘The Guardian Express.”
It is important to point out that our sister publication has achieved enormous success with the aid of our foundational members: James Turnage, Dawn Crawford, Jim Donahue, Kelly Newman, Erin Lale, Gricelda Vicario, Randy Rose, Dr. Stephen Frye,

Beem Me Up Scottie...There's No Intelligent Life Down Here

WOW!  If I weren't a Mom with three little angels that need me to be here for them, I'd sign up for this trip in a heartbeat.  Although, my plans would, in addition to exploring Mars' layered existence, be to formulate, create, test, and ultimately use, the return technology that our civilization is lacking.  Of course, I'd probably need a bit of advanced techno "help." Who knows what can happen when you wish upon a star.

Would you take a one-way trip to Mars?

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Mars One wants to fly people to Mars and leave them there to live
  • Every two years, a new crew would join them
  • There is no return flight; you die there
  • Some of it is media hype, but some is not, a source says

(CNN) -- Step right up and prove why you should get a one-way ticket to Mars! Well, wait -- you might want to know a little more about the venture first.
 
A Dutch company called Mars One began looking Monday for volunteer astronauts to fly to Mars. Departure for the Red Planet is scheduled for 2022, landing seven months later in 2023.
The space travelers will return ... never. They will finish out their lives on Mars, representatives from the nonprofit said.
 
"It's likely that there will be a crematorium," said CEO Bas Lansdorp. "It's up to the people on Mars to decide what to do with their dead."
 
Still, the company said it has received more than 10,000 e-mails from interested would-be spacefarers.

Calling All You Angels: The World Needs Your Help

The recent bombing during the Boston Marathon, and the subsequent shut-down of nearly the entire city of Boston and its suburbs, called my heart and brain to action.  Of course, I'm always concerned with the World, and the impending doom that man has created for itself.  But this particular incident has me more than concerned than ever. 

None of what is being reported makes sense.  Two well-adapted, young men, with lots of friends and family attesting to their good nature.  Great repoire with teachers, and instructors.  One a second-year medical student. The other with a guaranteed future as a boxer - not to mention he, the one whose life was unfortunately taken during the manhunt, was making a go at being in the next Olympics.

I need to know how to equate all of what I've heard and seen on live stream.  I'm sure we'll never know whether these young men were victims and just merely "scape goats."  Or, if there truly was something in their hearts that they believed in fighting for or against.

What I do know is that our world has "gone to the dogs" as they say.  And, that without the help of higher power, we are on our way to a certain end.  One that has already proven will be disastrous, devastating, and will place in suffering the ones who are the farthest from deserving.

Prayers out to all.

When You Wish Upon a Star: Kepler at Work


From the time I was a small child, and old enough to be cerebral, I always believed, and knew deep in my heart that we are not alone.  Whether God, as we know his infinite greatness, is the reason for our existence, or, the Big Bang Theory.  I know that the majesty and wonder of existence cannot be solely ours.  There must be other life elsewhere in the vastness of space.  If only we as a civilization were advanced enough to propel ourselves out into the great unknown.  Imagine what we'd find!  Christopher Columbus would have nothing on us.  And hopefully, that which we would discover would be cherished, rather than destroyed as with past generations on Earth.

    MOFFETT FIELD, Calif. -- NASA's Kepler mission has discovered two new planetary systems that include three super-Earth-size planets in the "habitable zone," the range of distance from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.

    The Kepler-62 system has five planets; 62b, 62c, 62d, 62e and 62f. The Kepler-69 system has two planets; 69b and 69c. Kepler-62e, 62f and 69c are the super-Earth-sized planets.

    Two of the newly discovered planets orbit a star smaller and cooler than the sun. Kepler-62f is only 40 percent larger than Earth, making it the exoplanet closest to the size of our planet known in the habitable zone of another star. Kepler-62f is likely to have a rocky composition. Kepler-62e, orbits on the inner edge of the habitable zone and is roughly 60 percent larger than Earth.

    The third planet, Kepler-69c, is 70 percent larger than the size of Earth, and orbits in the habitable zone of a star similar to our sun. Astronomers are uncertain about the composition of Kepler-69c, but its orbit of 242 days around a sun-like star resembles that of our neighboring planet Venus.

Thanks America for Showing Once Again How "Little" You Care

The damage has been done.  Three souls to this point lost.  More than 130 injured - having to relive the events every day for the rest of their lives.  While we don't know the "Who?" of the question.  The "Why" is obvious.  Our country has let us down.  People are "pissed off." 

We can't eat our grain - due to all the genetic modifications.  We can't eat our seafood - because we sold out long ago to Big Oil.  We can't breathe our air, because it's poisoned with dispersants - or cover-ups (if you choose to see it that way).  We, the little people, can't even begin to live.  PERIOD.

How sickly our  land.  That just about every foreign nation loathes us?  It's not "We the People" who have caused this catastrophe.  It's "We, the rich and powerful, that now control your lives like puppets on a string."

God send your peace down on the average man who tills the soil, works the mines, makes the coffee,and functions every day regardless, and our soldiers who vigilantly watch over ALL.  For though WE are the United States of America, WE are not represented by any of THOSE that would have our nation be as it once was intended.

My love, my heart, my prayers to all those....

Boston Fans Mourn, Then Cheer as Sports Return

Emerging from a moment of silence with a deafening cheer, fans at Wednesday night's Bruins game paid tribute to the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing with a stirring national anthem and a thunderous chant of "U.S.A.!"

The sold-out crowd at the first major sporting event in the city since Monday's attack lined up for metal-detecting wands and random car inspections to get into the TD Garden. Once inside, they watched a somber video with scenes from the race, ending with the words, "We are Boston, We are Strong."
''
The players on the ice for the opening faceoff banged their sticks in the traditional hockey salute, drifting back off the blue lines so that they, too, could see the video. The Boston Fire Department Honor Guard brought out the U.S. flag to honor the first responders who rushed to the aid of the three killed and more than 170 injured by the twin bombs at the marathon finish line.
Longtime Boston Garden troubadour Rene Rancourt took his place for the "Star-Spangled Banner." But he sang only the first few lines, allowing the crowd to carry the tune while he pumped his fist to keep time.

It was an emotional return to normal life for the city, which has been dazed by the attacks on one of its signature and most beloved events. Monday's scheduled Bruins game against Ottawa was rescheduled, and Tuesday night's Celtics game was canceled outright.
Boston Marathon Sabres Hockey.JPEG
But the Bruins said they were determined to help the city move on.

"You're trying to live your life in peace, and there's people trying to disrupt that," coach Claude Julien said after the team's morning skate. "The people trying to live their life in peace are going to stick together."

Players on both teams wore "Boston Strong" decals on their helmets, and the Garden was illuminated in blue and yellow, the colors of the Boston Athletic Association.

Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs pledged $100,000 to The One Fund Boston, the charity established to help families affected by the bombing; the Garden, the NHL and the players association pledged $50,000 each. Ads on the dasher boards and the video screens gave the website address for the fund.
Bruins players and staff collected 80 tickets to the game to donate to the first responders. Forward Brad Marchand raffled off his own suite for the team's first playoff game, with the proceeds to go to the family of 8-year-old Martin Richards, who was killed in the blast.

"I'm sure tonight will be full of emotion," forward Chris Kelly said Wednesday morning. "If we can go play hard to help the city of Boston in any way we can, I know everybody in this locker room would be willing to do that.

"We love the city. We want to help in any way we can — if we can give them 10 minutes of joy, or 20 hours of joy — anything we can do."

That was already accomplished 5:45 into the first period, when Daniel Paille's goal to give the Bruins a 1-0 lead over the Buffalo Sabres brought a raucous chant of "We are Boston!"

During the first break, public address announcer Jim Martin asked any runners from Monday's race to stand up; many were wearing their finishers' medals. He then asked for applause for anybody who has ever run; by the time he recognized anyone who has ever volunteered or watched the race, virtually the entire crowd was standing

"It's a great day. It's a great day for a lot of people," said Bruins forward Jay Pandolfo, who went to Boston University. "There's no reason for this to happen. You never thought something like this could happen, especially in the city of Boston. Stuff like this doesn't cross your mind."
Cars were searched inside and out before entering the arena's underground garage in the morning, with guards using a mirror on a pole to check the undercarriage. Sports writers, usually subject to only the most cursory inspection, were waved with a metal-detecting wand when passing through security for the Bruins' morning skate.

"It brings back memories you don't want," said Pandolfo, who was with the New Jersey Devils during the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. "It's something you don't want to think about. You want to go ahead with your life. You don't want to live in fear."

All of the Bruins players said they feel safe at the arena and walking around the city, commending authorities for the added security since the bombing. Any anxiety, Julien said, needs to be directed toward the game.

"It's a different feeling, but you're battling with your inner strength to not let it get the best of you," he said. "The best thing we can do is to make things better for the people of Boston. Sports is a great way to pull people together. Just going out there making the city proud of their team, and that's what we're going to do."

Morgellons: Sufferers of the Past, Present,and Most Certainly the Future

The following article was extracted from The Washington Post's website.  In all the time I have been researching Morgellons online, this is the first time I have stumbled upon such an indepth article.  You'd think that I would have found it sooner since it was written and printed in January, 2008.  And why haven't there been more articles since?  Why isn't more attention being paid to this REAL disease?  How many people have to die, whether from the disease itself, or self-inflicted gun shot wounds when they can't take it anymore?  These people - it is now a worldwide disorder - need help.  America has always come to the aid of those in need. So why not now?  What's the problem?  I think I know.  Make your best guess, and you're probably right too.

Figments of the Imagination?
By Brigid Schulte
Sunday, January 20, 2008

Sue Laws remembers the night it began. It was October 2004, and she'd been working in the basement home office of her Gaithersburg brick rambler where she helps her husband run their tree business. She was sitting at her computer getting the payroll out, when all of a sudden she felt as if she were being attacked by bees. The itching and stinging on her back was so intense that she screamed for her husband, Tom. He bounded downstairs and lifted her shirt, but he couldn't see anything biting her. She insisted something must be. To prove there was nothing there, he stuck strips of thick packing tape to her back and ripped them off. Then they took the magnifying eyepiece that Tom, an arborist, uses to examine leaves for fungus and blight and peered at the tape. "That's when we saw them. It was covered with these little red fibers," Sue recalls. She'd never seen anything like them. And she had no idea where they came from. "You automatically think clothing. But I wasn't wearing anything red."
This Story

Over the next month, Sue's itching intensified. Every night, she says, it felt as if thousands of tiny bugs were crawling under her skin, stinging and biting. She became unable to sleep at night. She left the lights on, because the crawling seemed to be worse in the dark. Thinking it might have been a flea infestation, Sue and Tom pulled up all the carpets in the house. Thinking perhaps it was mold, they tore off the wallpaper. They sanded and stained the bare floors, and then Tom called an exterminator.

Every morning, Sue says, she found little black specks all over her side of the bed. Then she discovered droplets of blood where the specks appeared to be coming out of her skin. "I looked like I had paper cuts all over," she says. She began washing the sheets in ammonia every day. Next, her chest, neck, face, back, arms and legs broke out in painful, red gelatinous lesions that never seemed to heal. To get some relief, she stayed in the shower for hours. She bathed in vinegar and sea salt and doused her body with baby powder. Nothing really helped.

Her joints began to ache. She lost all her energy and became forgetful. She says she would comb her hair, and tangled clumps of what looked like hair, fibers, dust and skin tissue would fall out. Then, she says, her actual hair began to fall out and her teeth began to rot. She refused to let anyone in the house and stopped going out. She didn't know what she had, but she was afraid she might be contagious.

One day, she says, a pink worm came out of one of her eyeballs and she coughed up a springtail fly. "That's when I thought, 'I'm really going to kill myself,'" she says.

Sue visited a dermatologist, who said he didn't know what was wrong. In time, Sue, 51, came across a condition on the Internet that sounded exactly like her own, and joined 11,036 others from the United States and around the world who, as of earlier this month, had registered on a Web site as sufferers of what they say is a strange new debilitating illness. Some call it the "fiber disease," but most refer to it as Morgellons, a name taken from a similar condition of children wasting away with "harsh hairs" described in the 17th century. A frustrated mother, Mary Leitao, then living in South Carolina, happened upon the description in an old medical history book in 2002 after doctors didn't believe her when she told them that her son had fibers growing out of his lip.

Psychological Child Abuse 101

If only the latest in psychological research and findings had been available at the time I needed it, my abusive ex-husband - who I'm sure at the same time paid off Judge Curtis J. Neal in Hernando County, Florida - wouldn't have "triumphed" in his eight-year long sickly court battle against me to win custody of my three beautiful angels.  I always knew money made things happen, but PLEASE.

Read the following excerpt.  Appreciate what is being said.  Look around you, and see who may be suffering from the same.  AND TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION!  A child's mind is so pure and open.  It's truly a sin to see it tainted by the sick, evil experiences, and thereafter desires, of those that will take that from them.

Please read.  Please share.  Please react.

Caught Between Parents
Supporting children through the challenges of divorce

Parental Alienation Is Emotional Abuse of Children

Should children be allowed to choose one parent over the other
 
Parental alienation is a set of strategies that parents use to undermine and interfere with a child's relationship with his or her other parent. This often but not always happens when parents are engaged in a contested custody battle. There is no one definitive set of behaviors that constitute parental alienation but research with both parents and children has revealed a core set of alienation strategies, including bad-mouthing the other parent, limiting contact with that parent, erasing the other parent from the life and mind of the child (forbidding discussion and pictures of the other parent), forcing the child to reject the other parent, creating the impression that the other parent is dangerous, forcing the child to choose, and belittling and limiting contact with the extended family of the targeted parent.

Parents who try to alienate their child from his or her other parent convey a three-part message to the child: (1) I am the only parent who loves you and you need me to feel good about yourself, (2) the other parent is dangerous and unavailable, and (3) pursuing a relationship with that parent jeopardizes your relationship with me. In essence the child receives the message that s/he is worthless and unloved and only of value for meeting the needs of others. This is the core experience of psychological maltreatment (emotional abuse) as defined by the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (APSAC).
Research with "adult children" of parental alienation syndrome (that is, adults who believe that when they were children one parent turned them against the other parent) confirms that being exposed to parental alienation represents a form of emotional abuse. Furthermore, these adults reported that when they succumbed to the pressure and rejected one parent to please the other, the experience was associated with several negative long-term effects including depression, drug abuse, divorce, low self-esteem, problems with trusting, and alienation from their own children when they became parents themselves. In this way the cycle of parental alienation was carried forward through the generations. Thus, parental alienation is a form of emotional abuse that damages the child's self esteem in the short run and is associated with life-long damage.

Morgellons: It is Everywhere, and in Everything!

The following article by Marc Neumann is a compilation of data on Morgellons Disease which I acquired from a German Morgellons website while researching the potential for bovine digital dermatitis to be a contributing factor to the increase in humans with Morgellons. 

As I theorized that if cattle are infected, than why so wouldn't it transmit to the human population through the beef we eat, the milk we drink, and the butter and cheese we consume as well.

Well, I honestly have to say that I hate it when I'm right.  But, more importantly, the following information suggests that it isn't merely cattle, but poultry, textiles, and just about anything else one can come in contact with including organically grown vegetables, coffee and more.

While reading the following is going to put the "fear of God" into the reader, IT MUST BE KNOWN and shared with those who are living in "ignorant bliss."

***************************

Transmission and Dispersion:

The spread and propagation of this Morgellons live form (fungus or fungus-like as e.g. protozoan) which is likely an airborne fungus living in soil, can occur at any time, usually, via naturally occurring spores. But germination, further growth, activity and infectiousness require the right environmental conditions (pH, temperatures, moisture).

Alternatively, if we assume the pesticide industry as distributors, dispersion is accomplished by industrially manufactured hollow or porous fibers (light- and pH-sensitive polymers) of plastic, lignin, cotton, or cellulose that are used to carry or to coat and protect unstable bio-insecticides (microbes) against UV-light, heat, etc.

The spread of the Morgellons disease happened actually very slowly over the past 20 to 30 years, and it is not comparable with AIDS or SARS. It could be that some bio-insecticide was used locally at first, by pheromone traps or spraying actions, and then gradually spread across the country, due to increasing usage over many years.

Read more about in the feature "BIO-INSECTICIDES" under "Morgellons Disease Factors"
Further dispersion could have been made by storms, hurricanes, floods, humans, animals or insects, rather than by mass spraying, such as chemtrails. Despite having the same number of chemtrail actions in Europe, and even if we would have a longer prepatent period before disease outbreak, we would see more infections worldwide, because there are many more immunocompromised people (e.g. drug users, hospital patients and residents of retirement centers, etc.).

What happens to these Morgellons organisms after they are rinsed into sewage systems is currently not clear. They may survive in water or sewage purification plants, perhaps even after chemical treatments.

There are reports annually of urban biological sewage purification plants that have a number of problems already with bacteria and nematodes collecting in filtering units. Theoretically then, it would be possible for these parasites to arrive over water pipelines back into dwellings (via shower, washing machine, drinking faucet, etc.).

It is not impossible, since gradually more locations (soil, lakes, plants) are infested with these parasites. Messy and unclean living conditions, as well as any chronic illnesses, will favor constant re-infection with these parasitic life forms.

Ways of transmission:

Based on my survey results (read more under "Inquiry Results" and "Statistic"), people were contaminated in many different ways. One lady was infected from a night in a hotel room, others from motels and contaminated linens. Another lady contracted Morgellons when she slept in the bed of her mother, who already had Morgellons.

Some contracted it from a one-night-stand or touching a stray dog, others from cats, hamsters, birds, bird mites, wild rabbits, cows, poultry, goats, horses, insect bites, or direct contact with soil or plant leaves, or after flooding of the house. Infection has occurred simply by sitting on the grass, or living next to Monsanto test fields for insecticides e.g. on Hawai.

There are families in which the parents show no symptoms, but one or some of the children, even babies, are symptomatic. Sometimes only the wife is infected, sometimes only the husband, and sometimes both. Sometimes all members of a bigger family are infected.
Most who left their homes for vacation had more relief and fewer symptoms during their periods of infection. The moment they returned home was the moment when all their symptoms started again (moldy home).

Many couples have written me that one partner has Morgellons, but they still have sex together. Even after many years, the non-afflicted partner (masculine types) did not show any disease symptoms. The same applies to families, where one mother alone or living with one child was infected, while other children or the husband was not, or vice versa.

There are myriad variations of infection patterns among family members present in the home. Most are just prone to Morgellons due to a latent or already active infection by Borrelia bacteria which is causing Lyme disease.

Cross-contaminations:

Cross-contamination among humans could be taking place even through damp hand contact. Theoretically, it can occur with any contact that is still moist from body perspiration, such as in a crowded bus, locker room, gym, swimming pool, or on shopping cart handles or public telephones.

Summer temperatures would favor contamination. One could sweat, wipe the sweat away with the hands, or onto the clothes, then these same hands might contaminate any number of possible objects, such as money from a sweaty wallet carried in the back pocket, the blood pressure cuff at your doctor's office, the brushes and combs used by your hairdresser, the countertop at the nightclub or bar, and office keyboards.

Of course, a common means of higher contamination is through shared secretions in sexual contact or IV drug use. Consider the fact that only one infected e.g. prostitute, with or without condom, who does not recognize this illness, could be visited by approximately 200-400 men in a month, and thus alone could cover a sphere of activity by approximately 4,000- 5,000 persons or more.

One can spread infection directly or through one's family members and close associates. These figures need to be increased to include family members and acquaintances, who are at risk of being infected or become a latent carrier of spores. So just by taking the example of the active homosexual or participants in prostitution, large numbers of infections will occur through close body contact. Safer sex just does not work in these scenarios!

Therefore, the larger the group and the more intimate the public contact, such as with sharing a toilet area for prolonged times on long-distance trains, recirculated air on airplanes, or public telephones, the larger the risk of exposure and an indirect infection.

If however nobody is warned either by the press or health authorities, then no one can protect himself against it. With this disease, as compared to AIDS, things are different. Completely innocent people, including children, babies and pets, can be infected in the near future at any time by touch.

Big cities, such as Paris, Rome, Milan, Berlin, Munich, Budapest, Vienna, and Athens, offer more favorable conditions than rural areas for spreading infection among the population.
Currently, there are approximately 100,000 humans (based on my survey results) officially infected with Morgellons disease worldwide. The dark numbers of infections are possibly more than 10 million. Eastern countries, aquatic and terrestrial animals are not even taken into account.

Further inquiry results revealed, that most of the Morgellons afflicted had also bacterial coinfections, acquired probably by this fungus (vector). Which may transmit also bacterial or viral pathogenes, and perhaps filaria or insect eggs, once the fungus had infected mammals. Approximately 60% had Borrelia, 30% Chlamydia and 10% of the sufferers had a Mycoplasma infection. Some afflicted had even all of these infections at once.

Another factor in containment of the spread is self-quarantine by contaminated persons, who take extreme precautions and isolation to avoid further transmission, thereby losing friends, spouses, partners, family, work, and their reputations and social life.

U.S. the origin?
Further inquiry results revealed that most European and Asian tourists contracted Morgellons after a holiday trip to Florida, California, Texas or NY, or after having had contact with people who had visited the U.S., or from Americans who had visited their countries. Additionally, the export of American goods plays a certain role in the spread.

Many Europeans who live in harbor cities, such as Amsterdam, Stockholm, London, Bremen and Hamburg, probably contracted Morgellons from goods arriving on U.S. ships. Harbors, airports and big cities, seem to contribute more to distribution of this disease. Therefore, also New York, New Orleans, Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and so on are predestined to have higher rates of infection cases in U.S.

These few facts suggest that the origin of Morgellons must be in the U.S., where something is in use that is not applied in Europe. Because of that, I think that chemtrails are really not the cause of, but may contribute to, higher dispersion of Morgellons via electrostatic polymers that can attract all kinds of pathogens in nature (soil or sky).

If the first recorded Morgellons epidemic happened in Texas, Florida and California, then we have to look in those states to find out what was used and spread from there. It could have to do with the use of bio-insecticides as natural antagonists (opponents) to fight red fire ants, ticks, mosquitos, or pests on crop plantations.

Heavy Metal Poisoning, and Morgellons

My compliments to Mr. Joseph Keleher on the following article which contains his "theory" with regard to Morgellons Syndrome Symptoms.

I'd like to add, however, that while heavy metal poisoning is most certainly part of the underlying cause for Morgellons, and the "fibers" are definitely mercury related, the actual crawling, and reports of "bugs," most recently theorized to be Springtails (Collembola), as well as numerous other parasitic infiltrators is REAL. 

So, what is the correlation between heavy metal poisoning and the body playing host to these unwanted visitors?  As I am not a scientist, and haven't had the ability to "test" my theory, I'm going to offer this merely based on my research.

The human body is much like a tree.  Wholly natural in it's makeup and DNA.  When you poison a tree with chemicals, for example, stump killer, the main ingredients of which are potassium nitrates, Triclopyr, sodium pyrosulfite, acids, and other inert ingredients (depending on which product you purchase), the end result is the tree begins to "rot."

And what do we know about rotten tree debris?  Well, if you've ever wandered about the woods, you would have run across loads of downed timber that has succumbed to Mother Nature's cycle of rain, wind, and basic decomposition.  Poke a stick at it, and most often, what you'll find, is that the rotting wood has become host to a myriad of insects and parasites.  Much like the carcass that becomes host to fly larvae/maggots.

Basically, then, you can consider the human body a rotting tree once exposure to dangerous toxins has occurred.  Making it the perfect "host" for all sorts of unwanted invaders - yes, the parasitic and insect type.

And, since recent research has shown that the ratio of Springtails to soil worldwide is 3 to 1, it makes the most sense that one of the main invaders of our degrading human "tree," is Collembola.

Again, since I am not a scientist, and I have yet to have the ability to actually test my theory in any type of controlled environment, what has been offered up remains exactly that, THEORY.  Take it with a grain of salt.

But, I will say this, I know the parasite and insect invasions of Morgellons sufferers to be REAL, as a good friend of mine, Trisha Springstead, who has been fighting for Morgellons sufferers for years - and is now fighting to save our Gulf post-BP oil disaster, produced photographs of REAL patients, and REAL parasites and insects which she personally pulled from patient's skin.  Oh, and let's not fail to mention that she also happens to be a well-known nurse.

Crawling Sensations, Fibers and Other Noted Morgellons Syndrome Symptoms: Another Theory for Sufferers to Consider

by Joseph Keleher

I am not a medical professional. Let me repeat that. I am not, never have been and have no desire to ever become a medical professional. I might best be labeled a reluctant participant, as I suffered from Morgellons Syndrome Symptoms.

I have done my best to document what I went through (see Keleher 2008 “Hell and Back Again”). I wrote about connections to mercury and these horrific symptoms. I’ve angered medical professionals and sufferers. I’ve lost some old friends. I’ve found some new friends. I’ve written, emailed, and spoke on the phone with others who suffer. I’ve cried a bunch and still do (I don’t exactly know why).

I know it is possible to get well. I know what I suffered from and what I think most are suffering from is mercury as a neurotoxin. It is treatable with chelation and changes in lifestyle.

What I share are my thoughts. Yes, it is speculation. It is theory related to symptoms I had and you may still have. In reading be warned there are many “I think”s and “I believe”s. It’s all theory; it may be right or it may be wrong. Still, I feel compelled to share.

The Cause

I believe the recent growing numbers of those suffering from Morgellons symptoms is due to two ingredients- toluene and mercury.

Toluene is found in glues, methamphetamines and cocaine. I believe the toluene found in dental adhesives, and connected to symptoms by Dr. Omar Amin, correlate with a surge of sufferers of these symptoms (and possibly via prenatal passage the exponentially growing number of children with autism, ADD and ADHD).

I think toulene interacts with mercury to allow passage of this toxin into the nervous system. Toluene may dissipate after carrying mercury into the system leaving deposits of mercury. The primary source of mercury in the mouth (though there are other sources causing mercury increases including some skin creams, coal burning power plants, and historic mining activities) decreases as secondary deposits in the nerves increase.

The associated symptoms of this neurotoxin can be viewed as occurring in stages with new symptoms added as secondary deposits increase. The stages, based partly on my own experience, but also drawing from the experience of many others, might look like: 1) depression and panic attacks (typical symptoms of neurotransmitter blockage), 2) bloating, heart palpitations, and exhaustion, 3) crawling sensations, 4) fibers and skin lesions….and so on.

All of the symptoms noted with Morgellons, except crawling sensations and fibers, have been shown to be associated with mercury poisoning; because of this, I want to share how I think these two symptoms form.

Crawling Sensations

In the earliest onset of the “bugs”, I had faint flea-like zips across my scalp. I believe this was mercury pathways forming within the nerve cell network under my skin.

As the secondary levels of mercury increased, the sensations of crawling began. My crawling always started each night at the rear, right occipital area of my scalp (in journaling, at that time, I referred to the spot on my scalp as the “Mother Ship”); this area correlates with the low spot of my skull when resting (I have a preference for sleeping on my right with my head cocked back). The extreme density of mercury I believe was pooling.

Crawling typically began as the sun was setting and there was a change in temperature. Within weeks, the crawling expanded to my groin and bottom of my feet. Eventually my whole body had the sensations. It was during this time that I was diagnosed with sheet mites and scabies (and found out about something called Morgellons).

I believe as levels of mercury further increased, the crawling became more pronounced and expanded throughout my body. The sensation was especially disturbing when it began in my ear canals and nostrils.

I think the crawling is due to the expansion and contracting of mercury within the network of nerves. I picture it as one spider-shaped cell after another filling and twitching as mercury moves through (causing a kind of “cartoon effect” movement); one sufferer described this observed movement as certain proof of parasitic infestation. I still get a faint twitch occasionally at the base of my feet (but it feels different and I suspect it relates to nerve repairs and not mercurial movement).

If the Morgellons symptoms occur in stages related to increases in mercury, then I arrived at one of the middle stages. I never found fibers projecting from my skin or had any lesions. I’m thankful for this.

Fibers

I think the fibers are the result of repeated cell damage repairs from mercury expansion and contrasting through the nerve system. A weak spot may have mercury break through and this will “scab” over. The fibers eventually poke through as they have nowhere else to go.

Final Words

I know there are many theories out there. Mine is one among many. Take it as such.
Morgellons is an especially cruel condition. In addition to the symptoms, the medical community has not been especially kind. The sensationalism of the media doesn’t help. Isolation and lose of connections to other people is difficult. There is one thing though that especially irritates me; I cannot stand that there are people taking advantage of the vulnerability of many sufferers. For those snake oil sales people making money off this condition, someday you will get yours; it is true what we do to others we do to ourselves.

For those suffering, be careful of the sharks, keep faith that answers will come soon, and always, always keep an “attitude of gratitude” for all you have. You are not alone and things will get better! I wish each and ever one of you a clear path towards health.

Thank you so much Joseph for another excellent and thought provoking article. Your thoughts really make me wonder if the NAC I take is a major player in my feeling better? Here are two other excellent articles written by Joseph that the reader might also want to examine.

SHAME on the humans. SHAME.

As if man's hunt on itself isn't enough. So, the wealthy have to hunt that which should never be seen behind the "site" of a gun barrel. Only the site of the eye. SHAME.  Please help.

Dear friends,

Within hours, Tanzania's President Kikwete could start evicting tens of thousands of the Maasai from our land so hunters can come and kill leopards and lions. Last time Avaaz raised the alarm, the President shelved the plan. Global pressure can stop him again. Click to help us urgently:

We are elders of the Maasai from Tanzania, one of Africa’s oldest tribes. The government has just announced that it plans to kick thousands of our families off our lands so that wealthy tourists can use them to shoot lions and leopards. The evictions are to begin immediately.

Last year, when word first leaked about this plan, almost one million Avaaz members rallied to our aid. Your attention and the storm it created forced the government to deny the plan, and set them back months. But the President has waited for international attention to die down, and now he’s revived his plan to take our land. We need your help again, urgently.

President Kikwete may not care about us, but he has shown he’ll respond to global media and public pressure -- to all of you! We may only have hours. Please stand with us to protect our land, our people and our world’s most majestic animals, and tell everyone before it is too late. This is our last hope:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/maasai_ss_tag_dm/?bKTRxdb&v=23791

Our people have lived off the land in Tanzania and Kenya for centuries. Our communities respect our fellow animals and protect and preserve the delicate ecosystem. But the government has for years sought to profit by giving rich princes and kings from the Middle East access to our land to kill. In 2009, when they tried to clear our land to make way for these hunting sprees, we resisted, and hundreds of us were arrested and beaten. Last year, rich princes shot at birds in trees from helicopters. This killing goes against everything in our culture.

Now the government has announced it will clear a huge swath of our land to make way for what it claims will be a wildlife corridor, but many suspect it’s just a ruse to give a foreign hunting corporation and the rich tourists it caters to easier access to shoot at majestic animals. The government claims this new arrangement is some sort of accommodation, but its effect on our people’s way of life will be disastrous. There are thousands of us who could have our lives uprooted, losing our homes, the land on which our animals graze, or both.

President Kikwete knows this deal would be controversial with Tanzania’s tourists - a critical source of national income - and does not want a big PR disaster. If we can urgently generate even more global outrage than we did before, and get the media writing about it, we know it can make him think twice. Stand with us now to call on Kikwete to stop the sell off:

https://secure.avaaz.org/en/maasai_ss_tag_dm/?bKTRxdb&v=23791

This land grab could spell the end for the Maasai in this part of Tanzania and many of our community have said they would rather die than be forced from their homes. On behalf of our people and the animals who graze in these lands, please stand with us to change the mind of our President.

With hope and determination,

The Maasai elders of Ngorongoro District

Bird Flu H7N9: A Real Reason for Concern

Learned of this one this morning.  Didn't have enough time to do the research I normally would before posting.  BUT, in China, nearly 20 people have succumbed to this current illness related to our beautiful friends, birds.  The one question I have, which, at this time goes unanswered, is, "If the virus, which we already know to be an immediate result of man's connection with our aviary friends, birds, and we KNOW that it can be in poultry, will cooking our turkeys, chickens, hens, quail, and the like to a high enough temperature, eradicate the virus so that we may peacefully sit at our dinner tables?" 

In other words, do the same "food borne" illness rules apply to this worldly event, or are we basically just screwed....can't eat the seafood thanks to "Big Oil" disasters, can't eat the poultry due to avian viruses, can't eat the beef because of "mad cow," and numerous other bovine issues.  I guess we still have pork.  THANK GOD THE BACON IS SAFE!!!!

On April 1, 2013, the World Health Organization reported three human infections with avian influenza A (H7N9) viruses in China. This is the first time avian influenza A (H7N9) viruses have been detected in humans. Each of the three confirmed cases had severe respiratory illness; two of them died. According to WHO, no human-to-human transmission has been identified at this time, and the cases do not have a known epidemiological link to one another. An investigation by Chinese health authorities is ongoing to determine the source of infection and detect any additional cases. The sequences of these viruses are posted and publicly available in GISAIDExternal Web Site Icon.
CDC is following this situation closely and coordinating with domestic and international partners in a number of areas, including gathering more information to make a knowledgeable public health risk assessment and developing a candidate vaccine virus. CDC also is reviewing posted genetic sequencing of the new H7N9 viruses and assessing possible implications in terms of the viruses’ transmissibility and severity and whether existing influenza diagnostic tests need to be enhanced or new ones developed. All of these actions are routine preparedness measures taken whenever a new novel influenza virus is detected in humans.
This is an evolving situation and there is still much to learn. It is too soon to speculate regarding the significance of these cases/viruses, however, CDC will provide updated information as it becomes available.

Additional Information

The World Health Organization has posted an update available at "H7N9 avian influenza human infections in ChinaExternal Web Site Icon."
The Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention has posted a Question & Answer document related to this situation available at "Questions and Answers about human infection withA(H7N9) avian influenza virusExternal Web Site Icon."
General information about avian influenza viruses and how they spread is available at Avian Influenza A Virus Infections in Humans.

CDC: Thanks for Paying Attention to What Really Matters.....PLEASE.

Ok.  I guess that I've been out of the loop for a bit, or was, at the time the Centers for Disease Control, decided to spend taxpayer dollars on a potential "Zombie Apocalypse."  While I know that rabies, and other viral infections can cause the human population, when infected, to go "insane," and act cannibalistic, and rabid like the dog "Cugo," I have to ask this question, because inquiring minds wanna know, "Why spend Americans' hard earned dollars on a world-wide craze, when Morgellons, and real illness is unfortunately the 'rage'?"  Real people are really sick, and need help NOW.  The zombies can wait.  Hell, they're so slow moving anyways that I'm sure we have time to address the real issues at hand.  WAKE UP CDC.  Perhaps you all are the ones in a coma, zombie-land.

The following was extracted from the CDC website amazingly enough.
