Here Comes a Rare and Wonderful Astronomical Event in the Night Sky of December 7th ~ The Occultation of Mars (Live Link to Watch)

The moon will pass directly in front of Mars, blocking it from view. This event, called an occultation —from a Latin word meaning “hidden”—happens once or twice per year somewhere on Earth.

The moon will turn full as Mars arrives at opposition to the sun, resulting in an almost perfect alignment in space of the sun, Earth, moon and Mars.

Mars at opposition will meet up with the full moon next week (Dec. 7). Here's how to see it

Every once in a while, something will appear in the sky that will attract the attention of even those who normally don't bother looking up. 

It's likely to be that way in the evening hours of Wednesday (Dec. 7) when the full moon will appear in very close proximity to the now-brilliant planet Mars. In fact, the moon will turn full at 11:08 p.m. EST (0408 GMT on Dec. 8) followed by Mars arriving at opposition to the sun just 87 minutes later. This will result in an almost perfect alignment in space of the sun, Earth, moon and Mars. 

People, who are unaware or have no advance notice, will almost certainly wonder, as they cast a casual glance toward our nearest neighbor in space on this first Wednesday in December, just what is that "bright orange-yellow light"? Sometimes, such occasions bring with them a sudden rash of phone calls to radio and television stations, local planetariums, weather offices and police precincts. Not a few of these calls excitedly inquire about "the mysterious UFO" that's closely hovering in the vicinity of our natural satellite!

If you don't live in any of the locations listed below that will provide a good chance to see the event in person, you're in luck: The Virtual Telescope Project will be hosting a livestream of Mars at opposition(opens in new tab) beginning at 11:00 p.m. EST on Dec. 7 (0400 GMT on Dec. 8).

(ALL ISRAEL NEWS) -- As the proverb says: “She is a tree of life to those who take hold of her, and happy are those who hold on to her.”

A small Book of Psalms being held by a 62-year-old man in last week’s pair of terrorist bombings in the Jerusalem area potentially saved his life.

Debris from one of the bus stop bombs struck the cover of a small Book of Psalms, nearly penetrating all the way through before stopping, quite appropriately, on a verse in Psalm 124: “Our soul is like a bird that escaped from a box of hardships.”

The Healthiest Bread in the World! And it is delicious!

Dr. Eric Berg ~ Author of The 7 Principles of Fat Burning

Wanting to eat the healthiest bread but don't know where to buy it or how to make it? 

 

The Healthiest Bread Recipe to Try at Home

Dry Ingredients:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot flour
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 ½ Tbsp very finely ground chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp organic psyllium husk powder

Wet Ingredients:

  • 1 ¼ cup filtered water
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (This is consumed by the yeast, which lowers the glycemic index.)
  • 1 egg

Directions

Steps of making the healthiest bread in the world | The Healthiest Bread Recipe In The World

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, arrowroot flour, coconut flour, and sea salt.
  2.  Heat water at 105-110 °F. Add 2 tsp of maple syrup and stir. Add the yeast and let the mixture stand for 10 minutes. The yeast should bubble or foam. If it doesn’t, start all over again.
  3.  Stir the finely ground chia and psyllium powder into the yeast mixture. Let it stand for 1 minute to thicken, then whisk.
  4.  Pour the thickened yeast-chia mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a wooden spoon until thick and fully combined. The dough will be slightly sticky, but workable. Knead for 1 minute.
  5.  Put the kneaded dough back into the bowl. Cover with a damp cloth and place in a warm spot to rise for 1 hour.
  6.  Preheat the oven at 425 °F with a pizza stone (or cooking sheet) inside.
  7.  Divide the dough into two balls. Place one of the dough balls on a square parchment paper or a cutting board. Dip your hands in water and shape the other big dough ball into small round balls. Brush with egg wash, if desired. Use a serrated knife to cut a tic-tac-toe pattern on the top.
  8.  Slide the prepared dough onto the preheated stone or cooking sheet. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Please note that baking time can vary; the measure of doneness is an internal temperature of 205-210 °F.
  9.  Let your baked goodies cool completely on a wire rack. (Not allowing the loaf to fully cool before cutting may result in a gummy interior.) Once completely cooled, slice and serve, or store in an airtight container. To re-crisp crust, toast or reheat at 375 °F for 5-10 minutes.

You can't call this grain bread or wheat bread because the ingredients do not include grain products like wheat and whole-grain flour. Whole grains, and even refined grains, can cause bloating to people.

This healthy bread recipe is nutritious and safe for you compared with the loaf of bread you’re used to eating. The slices of bread you can have with this recipe make a healthy replacement to your multi-grain bread or whole-wheat bread dishes.

6 Health benefits of grounding for autoimmune disease

Bare feet of small child standing barefoot outdoors in nature, grounding concept.

(Natural News) Earthing, or grounding, is a therapeutic technique that offers many benefits. According to some, it can also help protect against harmful free radicals and autoimmune diseases.

What is grounding?

Throughout the majority of history, humans have slept on the ground, gone shoeless or worn footwear made from animal hides that allowed equilibration with the electrical potential of the earth.

However, these practices have been discarded as times advanced and many modern inventions made life easier. But some of these changes can be viewed as detrimental because people lost the pivotal energy transfer from the ground to the body.

Thankfully, the practice of grounding can help you enjoy certain health benefits.

Grounding or earthing is a therapeutic technique that involves different activities that help “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth. This practice relies on earthing science and grounding physics to explain how electrical charges from the earth can offer certain benefits.

There are different types of grounding, but all of them focus on helping you reconnect to the earth.

You can do this through either direct or indirect contact like:

  • Lying on the ground, like in the grass at a park or on the sand at the beach
  • Walking barefoot in the grass on your lawn or on a sandy beach
  • Wading in water in a clear lake or swimming in the ocean
  • Using grounding equipment like grounding socks, grounding bands and patches, grounding sheets or blankets and grounding mats

While direct contact with the earth is optimal, using grounding equipment can help if you live in an area with inclement weather conditions or if you want to practice grounding in clinical settings. (Related: Don’t like to meditate? Try joyful grounding.)

Dangers of free radicals

The ground represents a reservoir of free and mobile electrons or negative charges. These charges can help neutralize the positively charged free radicals, or reactive oxygen species (ROS), that can cause cell damage and result in disease and degeneration.

Free radicals like hydrogen peroxide are inherently unstable compounds that are both byproducts of aerobic metabolism and synthesized through different physiochemical and pathological states.

While free radicals can be beneficial, in excess they cause oxidative stress, which is linked to autoimmune disease and other chronic conditions like cancer, diabetes mellitus, ischemic diseases (like coronary artery disease) and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s.

Benefits of grounding

Grounding is a technique that doesn’t require expensive equipment and that offers benefits such as:

Blood sugar regulation

People with autoimmune diseases such as Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis or ulcerative colitis are at greater risk of developing Type 2 diabetes because of common mechanistic pathways.

Blood sugar dysregulation and insulin resistance are also common predisposing factors in the onset of autoimmune disease. Research has found that practicing grounding over a three-day period can help decrease fasting glucose among people with diabetes who have poor glycemic control.

Endocrine balance

The over-production of inflammation-inciting cellular messengers called pro-inflammatory cytokines are a hallmark of autoimmune rheumatic diseases. They can activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis, which oversees your body’s stress response.

This can result in pro-inflammatory, autoimmune-exacerbating hormones overtaking anti-inflammatory hormones such as glucocorticoids, which can then cause an inflammatory cascade and tissue destruction.

Practicing grounding can help influence this often dysregulated hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-thyroid axis.

Blood viscosity

Studies suggest that the majority of autoimmune disorders like Behcet’s syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) are all accompanied by a greater risk of experiencing venous thromboembolism (VTE), which are blood clots that form in deep veins.

Experts think that this is due to disturbances in the immune system and the fact that systemic inflammation “modulates thrombotic responses by suppressing fibrinolysis, upregulating procoagulant and downregulating anticoagulant.” These processes favor clot formation and prevent the degradation of blood clots.

But study findings suggest that healthy volunteers who tried grounding for two hours had significantly less aggregation of red blood cells, indicating a substantial reduction in blood clotting potential. The grounded volunteers also possessed greater zeta potential, which is a marker for the ability of red blood cells to repel each other.
