Meet the woman who has lived on one of the world's most remote islands for 40 years... ALONE

 
image from i.dailymail.co.uk

A woman living on a remote island off the coast of Canada devoid of human life could certainly give Robinson Crusoe a run for his money.  Zoe Lucas, 67, has spent more than 40 years living on Sable Island, a large smile-shaped sandbar measuring around 26 miles long.  The only other residents on the patch of land are around 400 horses, 300,000 grey seals and 350 species of bird.   Talking to MailOnline Travel, Lucas, who is revered for her work as a naturalist, revealed that she has adapted to island life and never gets lonely.   She says her essential survival tools include a jotter pad, so she can take notes, and binoculars to observe the wildlife on the sandy shores.  Sometimes there are some rather odd things she spots through her lenses, however, with a fake leg being one of the more bizarre things that have surfaced on shore.

The citizen scientist from Halifax first visited Sable Island as a 21-year-old in 1971 while studying goldsmithing. 'I squawked and squawked, I wanted to come so bad. I originally came out here for the horses,' Lucas explains. 

Sable Island, which is only accessible by boat or charter plane, is home to hundreds of wild horses, which are completely unmanaged.

It's believed the animals arrived on the island in the early 18th century to help with agricultural work when a settlement was attempted and later they were recruited to help man a lifesaving station.

Sable Island - which is shrouded in fog for around 125 days of the year - is a notorious shipping hazard. 

Sable Island is a narrow, crescent-shaped sandbar measuring 26 miles long and 0.93 miles across at its widest point. It is considered to be part of the district of Halifax, although the urban area is located some 190 miles away on the Nova Scotian mainlandSable Island is a narrow, crescent-shaped sandbar measuring 26 miles long and 0.93 miles across at its widest point.

It is said to be home to more than 300 shipwrecks, earning it the nickname 'graveyard of the Atlantic'. One of the more recent accidents occurred in 1981.

But Lucas says the hostile environment didn't deter her and she swiftly returned to Sable Island and made it her home.

She set up camp on one end of the island, where former buildings from the abandoned lifesaving station once stood. Supplies are flown in on a weekly basis to enable her survival.

Bible Accurate again! Babylonians DID burn Jerusalem 2,600 years ago

Archaeologists have found evidence that the Babylonians were responsible for the burning of Jerusalem more than 2,600 years ago.

The researchers discovered charred wood, grape seeds, fish scales, bones and pottery along with numerous other artefacts which excavating the City of David.

The findings confirm the scene as described in the Bible, which states that the Babylonians 'burned all the houses of Jerusalem.'

Archaeologists have found evidence that the Babylonians were responsible for the burning of Jerusalem more than 2,600 years ago. The researchers discovered charred wood, grape seeds, fish scales, bones and pottery (pictured) along with numerous other artefact

WHAT DID THEY FIND? 

The researchers discovered a range of charred artefacts in the City of David. 

This includes charred wood, grape seeds, fish scales, bones and pottery, as well as ozens of jars used to store grains and liquids – many of which have stamped handles and rosette seals.

One of the rarest findings was a small ivory statue of a naked woman with a haircut or wig in an Egyptian style.

The experts believe that this shows the skill of the artists living there.

 

Archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority discovered the charred artefacts while excavating the City of David in Israel's Jerusalem Walls National Park.

The burning of Jerusalem by the Babylonians was first described in The Book of Jeremiah, which states: 'He burned the house of the Lord, and the king's house; and all the houses of Jerusalem, even every great man's house, burned he with fire.'

As well as the charred wood, pottery and food items, the researchers also discovered dozens of jars used to store grains and liquids – many of which have stamped handles and rosette seals.

Ortal Chalaf and Dr Joe Uziel, directs of the excavation, said: 'These seals are characteristic of the end of the First Temple Period and were used for the administrative system that developed towards the end of the Judean dynasty.

JOHN CLEESE: POLITICAL CORRECTNESS WILL LEAD TO AN ORWELLIAN NIGHTMARE

No political correctnessNo political correctness (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

John Cleese says political correctness has gone too far, especially on America’s college campuses, where he will no longer go to perform. AsBigThink reports, the very essence of his trade — comedy — is criticism and that not infrequently means hurt feelings. But protecting everyone from negative emotion all the time is not only impractical (one can’t control the feelings of another), but also improper in a free society.

Cleese, having worked with psychiatrist Robin Skynner, says there may even be something more sinister behind the insistence to be always be politically correct. MORE


CHILLING SIMILARITIES BETWEEN SETH RICH MURDER AND 'CLINTON BODY COUNT' VICTIMS

image from www.wnd.com

Murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich

The unsolved case of Democratic National Committee data analyst Seth Rich’s death shares some eerie similarities with many mysterious deaths of individuals linked to former President Bill Clinton and twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.    Just as in the Rich case, several of the people who died mysterious deaths were shot spontaneously and in public places, sometimes from behind, sometimes by unknown assailants and often just before they were set to release incriminating evidence concerning the Clintons’ activities. In most cases, there were no signs of theft at the crime scenes. And while some of the deaths were ruled suicides, other cases remain a mystery.

Ron Paul Warns Trump Headed for JFK-Like Fate in Deep State Battle

Certainly, Donald Trump’s presidency has not been the most peaceful of times for the Secret Service, with threats accumulating at an unprecedented pace in these first few months.

image from i.ytimg.comNot only have we been subjected to true, physical threats at the White House, with fence jumpers and the like, but the democratic “resistance” to Trump’s first term has been wildly belligerent.  The publicity stunts performed by the likes of Kathy Griffin, Snoop Dogg, and more have given the rest of Hollywood a free pass to create their own Trump assassination pornography.  Of course, Hollywood’s liberal fanbase has taken this obsession with the death of the Donald to the extreme, with violent outbursts at Trump rallies, riots in California to silence conservative voices, and the attempted assassination of several republican congressmen by Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer James T. Hodgkinson.

Beyond the crazed liberals and democratically-inspired anarchists, Trump has yet another enemy to consider in Washington, and according to Dr. Ron Paul, this could be his most fearsome opponent yet.

“If there’s one thing we can all say about Ron Paul, it’s that he knows how to get headlines, and he always seems to be calling Donald Trump onto the proverbial carpet. This isn’t to say that the President shouldn’t be criticized — to the contrary, the very nature of democracy demands that we call our leaders to the carpet. However, did Ron Paul go too far with this comment about Donald Trump?

“According to The Daily Sheeple, Ron Paul — a former Congressman — made the bold declaration about Donald Trump on what would have been JFK’s 100th birthday.

“Paul issued the statement on his Facebook page, presumably as a response to Rep. Al Green (D-TX) and his call for Trump’s impeachment, according to the outlet.

“’Kennedy angered the Deep State, National Security establishment when he negotiated with Russia to end above-ground nuclear testing, promised to remove American troops from South Vietnam, and began secret talks to end the Cold War with Russia and Cuba. If history repeats itself, Trump is apparently treading on thin ice from members within his own government. If Kennedy was assassinated by nefarious secret government entities within the Deep State, that same apparatus may come after Trump, too.’”

Everybody Is Forgetting That Clinton Allies Did The Same Thing As Don Jr.

image from cdn01.dailycaller.comMany journalists reacted breathlessly to a New York Times report on Sunday revealing that President Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., met with a Russian lawyer who indicated she had damaging information about Hillary Clinton.  

A veteran DNC operative who previously worked in the Clinton White House, Alexandra Chalupa, worked with Ukrainian government officials and journalists from both Ukraine and America to dig up Russia-related opposition research on Trump and Manafort. She also shared her anti-Trump research with both the DNC and the Clinton campaign, according to the Politico report.

Chalupa met with Ukrainian ambassador Valeriy Chaly and one of his aides, Oksara Shulyar, at the Ukrainian Embassy in March 2016 to talk about unearthing Paul Manafort’s Russian connections, Chalupa admitted to Politico. Four days later, Trump officially hired Manafort.

“The day after Manafort’s hiring was revealed, she briefed the DNC’s communications staff on Manafort, Trump and their ties to Russia, according to an operative familiar with the situation,” Politico reported.

Turin Shroud is stained with the blood of a torture victim

The major "word" in this article is "claim."

Experts have claimed the Shroud of Turin is stained with the blood of a torture victim, supporting claims it was used to bury Jesus.

They say the linen cloth, believed to have been used to wrap Christ's body after crucifixion, contains 'nanoparticles' which are not typical of the blood of a healthy person.

The alleged findings contradict claims the face of Jesus was painted on by forgers in medieval times.

Another Clinton Enemy Killed? The Clinton Death List Grows again

image from static5.businessinsider.comA Wall Street analyst who spoke to Peter Smith the day before he reportedly committed suicide told the Daily Caller News Foundation there were no indications the Chicago businessman and anti-Clinton political investigator was about to take his life.

“He may have been a fantastic actor but I certainly didn’t leave that phone call saying, ‘oh shit, the guy’s at the end of his rope,’” Charles Ortel, a Wall Street investment banker and market analyst, told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s (TheDCNF) Investigative Group.

“This does not seem like a settled story. It made perfect sense to me he might have died of natural causes, but little chance he would have killed himself,” Ortel said.

Ortel and Smith shared a common interest in the Clintons. Ortel has dug deeply into the financial operations of the Clinton Foundation. He first came to public attention in 2007 by exposing questionable accounting practices at General Electric. Ortel has similarly expressed doubts about the circumstances of Seth Rich’s murder — which police have concluded was a robbery gone wrong — commending those “who are trying to discover why so many people close to the last election have died along the way.”  MORE


More than HALF of ex-FBI director James Comey's memos of his conversations with Trump 'contain classified information'

Most of the memos written by former FBI chief James Comey in which he recounted details of his conversations with President Donald Trump contain classified information, it was reported on Sunday.  The revelation was made in a report by The Hill, which cited officials familiar with the documents.

If the officials are correct, it means Comey may have violated federal protocols on the handling of classified information.

Comey wrote seven memos about his conversations with Trump, four of which have been judged to contain classified information. 

The fired FBI boss shared one of the memos with reporters be leaking it through a friend, although it is not known if this one was classified.  

The irony is that Comey publicly criticized Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information during the bureau's investigation into the private email server she maintained while she was secretary of state.

Why America is so Special

First published by BOB BARNEY in 2012

image from www.josephknew.com

   Someone once asked me, "Bob how can you say in one breath that God has little to nothing to do with this world, yet then say that the USA one of the lost nations of Israel? In addition, that if we do not obey God, our nation will be destroyed by him? Which scenario is it, God involved or Satan’s world?"

I am quite sure that many have asked themselves the same question and let me assure you that there is an easy answer! God was totally involved in our world in the days of Adam and Eve. He (One of the divine Godhead that became Jesus) personally walked with them, talked with them and instructed them how to live in a godly lifestyle and have life forever. God had every intention to be involved in our lives from the start, just as any human parent has those same plans with their children.

Then sin entered the world through Adam and Eve’s disobedience of God’s Laws. Remember there is only one biblical definition of sin. "Sin is the transgression of the law." (1 John 3:4) Without the law, one cannot sin! (Romans 3:20 and Romans 7:7) When Adam and Eve broke God’s laws, they sinned. The Bible also gives us another term: "The wages (or penalty) of sin is death." ( Rom 6:23) Therefore breaking the laws of God, brings death! Therefore, Adam’s sin brought death to mankind.

Head injuries nearly DOUBLE your risk of dementia

Head injuries almost double a person's risk of developing dementia, new research shows.  Experts say the study by University of Maryland neurologists could transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated. It showed inflammation caused by traumatic brain injury can spread and cause long-lasting damage. The risk is particularly high for men aged between 41 and 56, they found.  

Experts say the study by University of Maryland neuroscientists could transform how brain inflammation is understood, and, ultimately, how it is treated

A growing swell of research has shown that chronic inflammation leads to progressive cell loss after traumatic brain injury (TBI). Some studies have shown that neuroinflammation often can continue for years after TBI, causing severe brain damage.  However, few researchers have been able to pinpoint how this inflammatory process unravels, and how it could be curbed.    To investigate the lingering impact of inflammation, a team led by Dr Alan Faden focused on microparticles produced by inflammatory brain cells.

These microparticles can activate normal immune cells, making them potentially toxic to brain neurons. 

They are released from cells known as microglia, immune cells that are common in the brain.

The Plain Truth about Jesus Christ: It's not what you think!

Jesus Christ: The Real Story

Forward: This is a church publication, NOT affliated with the Plain Truth Website. All links go to their website and are not products offered by us. That being said, this book is basically 100% factual - the story

image from markneale.orgWho was Jesus? Few will dispute that a man named Jesus lived 2,000 years ago and that He was a great teacher who impacted the world from His time forward.

 

Contents:

What is the real story of Jesus Christ?

Who, really, was Jesus of Nazareth? Where did He really come from? If we understand that, it explains everything He did and said.

When the early followers of Christ say Jesus is the One through whom all things were created, they are clearly saying that Jesus is God.

Jesus Christ was the Rock of the Old Testament.

The awesome destiny of mankind is to become part of God's family.

Jesus Christ accurately fulfilled the prophecies that were written hundreds of years before His birth.

An amazing prophecy in Daniel 9:25
gives the specific year the Messiah would appear.

A careful analysis of Scripture clearly indicates that December 25 is an unlikely date for Christ's birth.

Jesus lived a sinless life filled with miracles.

Miracles do indeed happen. In Christ's case, the Father answered His every prayer and backed up His every command.

One of the greatest proofs that Jesus is exactly who He said He was-the Son of God and the only One through whom eternal life is offered-is His resurrection from the dead.

Crucifixion wasn't always carried out the way we've seen it typically depicted in paintings and pictures.

How can we fit three days and three nights between a Friday-afternoon crucifixion and a Sunday-morning resurrection? Examine what the Bible really says.

The chronology of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ

Many people assume that, apart from the Bible, history is silent concerning Jesus of Nazareth. But in fact, several independent witnesses testify of Jesus' existence.

Why is there so much controversy over one man? The simple answer is that He claimed to be God-and from the record was able to support that claim.

Jesus was not created. He existed from eternity along with God the Father.

How could someone who is spirit, having lived for all eternity in the past, become human? Was Jesus a human being just like us? And when He was a human being, was He still God?

When we read the Gospels carefully, we see a number of family connections that help us better understand certain events.

Most people assume that Jesus had long hair. But is that accurate?

Jesus Christ's mission and teachings were misunderstood by most of those who saw and heard Him.

Both Christ and Messiah mean anointed or anointed one.

Do we really know the real Jesus? Do we really know what He is doing? Are we really preparing ourselves to be accepted and rewarded by Him when He establishes His Kingdom? And what is that Kingdom all about?

Salvation is hardly ever explained the way Jesus explained it. Jesus expressed the idea of salvation and eternal life in terms of entrance into the Kingdom of God.

Although most often called the Kingdom of God, occasionally other terms are used in describing the Kingdom.

The common view is that the teachings of Christ in the New Testament annulled and replaced the teachings of the Old Testament. But do they?

Jesus upheld the entire law by becoming the sacrifice for sin.

Does this new commandment supersede the Ten Commandments and replace all other biblical laws?

The following passages in the New Testament confirm, either explicitly or by example, that Jesus and the apostles viewed the Ten Commandments necessary for true Christian living.

In addition to the biblical Sabbath day, Jesus observed the biblical festivals recorded in the Old Testament; the Gospels do not show Him ever being accused of violating the Holy Day observances.

The question that should be asked is, who really caused the death of Jesus Christ?

We need to comprehend the significance of Christ's crucifixion.

Why was this event so important that three of the Gospel writers mentioned the tearing of the Temple Veil?

What is Jesus Christ like today?

The Bible reveals that we each have a date with destiny when we will face Jesus and give account of our actions.

This is the time God's people through the ages have longed and prayed for: Your kingdom come.

Freedom is never free! -- 4th of July Tribute

English: A key identifying the subjects of Joh...English: A key identifying the subjects of John Trumbull's painting "Declaration of Independence in Congress, at the Independence Hall, Philadelphia, July 4th, 1776", known as Trumbull's Declaration of Independence, a well-known work which hangs in the United States Capitol building (purchased from the painter in 1819) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists. Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated. But they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year, he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later, he died from exhaustion and a broken heart.

Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such were the stories and sacrifices of the American Revolution. These were not wild-eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more.

Standing talk straight, and unwavering, they pledged: "For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."

They gave you and me a free and independent America. The history books never told you a lot about what happened in the Revolutionary War. We didn't fight just the British. We were British subjects at that time and we fought our own government!

Some of us take these liberties so much for granted, but we shouldn't.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July Holiday and silently thank these patriots. It's not much to ask for the price they paid. Remember: Freedom is never free!

It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

This bootleg runner's son was in the passenger seat during the early days of NASCAR

When you think of NASCAR, it's likely you think of massive crowds, cars speeding past at over 200 mph and the corporate logos splashed on just about everything.

But the origin of the stock car race goes back to the late 1920s and 30s during prohibition when drivers navigated red dirt tracks in souped up cars running illegal moonshine from state to state for distilleries.

Bill Blair Jr. is the son of Bill Blair, a legendary bootleg runner who also was a professional racer and was one of the original drivers who raced with Bill France, the founder of NASCAR.

"The first cars that he raced were liquor cars," Blair Jr. explained. "You haul liquor at night, and on the weekend, they'd have the race and you'd use your liquor car."

Bill Blair Jr. grew up working on race cars with his dad and knows the history of NASCAR like the back of his hand.

Bill Blair Jr. grew up working on race cars with his dad and knows the history of NASCAR like the back of his hand.


Daniel Pierce, an author and history professor at the University of North Carolina-Asheville, said the automobile was a major development for people in the moonshine business because it made it easier to transport their product. Bootleggers, he explained, quickly developed high-speed driving skills to evade law enforcement.  MORE
