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).

Snow Extent in the Northern Hemisphere now Among the Highest in 56 years

Northern Hemisphere snow extent is currently indeed very high, now at about 41 million square kilometers, according to the NOAA/Rutgers Global Snow Lab. The most recent snow cover information is given in the image below.

The religion called climate change is about to insure the deaths of hundreds in the Northern Hemisphere areas of the globe. A disaster is brewing because the west is pushing bans on fossil fuels, leaving millions in the cold and without food. What they will need and not get is global warming!   Snow extent in the Northern Hemisphere at the end of November represents an important parameter for the early winter forecast. This year snow extent is running much higher than average and according to existing global estimates, it is now beyond the highest ever observed so far. Winter forecast, especially in its early phase and in Europe, might be strongly influenced by such a large snow extent, although many other factors need attention... MORE>>>>>

Smoking one cigarette a day and a regular tot of whisky: How couple stayed married for 86 years

An Article from over 10 years ago.....

A couple celebrated their 86th wedding anniversary yesterday and offered some words of advice.

Karam Chand, 106, who enjoys a daily cigarette and a regular tot of whisky, said: ‘Eat and drink what you want, but in moderation.’ The former mill worker added: ‘I have never held back from enjoying my life.’

While his 99-year-old wife Kartari is looking forward to getting her telegram from the Queen next year, she is conscious of the need to stay fit and healthy.

Happily ever after: Karam and Kartari Chand married in India in 1925 and moved to Britain in the Sixties

She added: 'We have always eaten good wholesome food, there's nothing artificial in our diet but things like ghee (clarified butter), milk and fresh yogurt are what we like.

'We know that being married for 86 years is a blessing, but equally we will be ready to go when it's time, it's all up to the will of God, but we really have lived a good life.' 

The couple from Bradford, West Yorkshire, have eight children, 27 grandchildren and  23 great-grandchildren.

They married in India in 1925 and moved to Britain in the Sixties.


'I have never held back from enjoying my life': Karam enjoys a daily cigarette and a regular tot of whisky

It is thought the couple could be the UK's longest married husband and wife.

Karam, who was born in a small rural village in northern India in 1905 kept with local custom of the time and married at a young age.

Katari was also born in the Punjabi district in 1912 and they married in typical Sikh ceremony in 1925.

Mauna Loa eruption: Hawaii Big Island volcano erupting first time in 38 years as ash fall warnings issued

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano located in Hawaii, began erupting late Sunday night, prompting officials to issue a warning to residents who live in the surrounding area of possible lava flow.

Hawaii officials issued an emergency alert around 11:30 p.m. local time on Sunday, warning that a volcanic eruption had been detected inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park near the summit caldera of Mauna Loa. Officials warned the eruption could cause volcanic gas and ash to be carried by the winds but confirmed that “lava flows are contained within the summit area and are not threatening downslope communities.”

HAWAII’S LARGEST ACTIVE VOLCANO ON THE PLANET HIT BY MAGNITUDE 5.0 EARTHQUAKE

“Residents at risk from Mauna Loa lava flows should review preparedness and refer to Hawai‘i County Civil Defense information for further guidance,” the U.S. Geological Survey said in its warning to residents. “Based on past events, the early stages of a Mauna Loa eruption can be very dynamic and the location and advance of lava flows can change rapidly.”

The eruption comes after the active volcano was put into a “state of heightened unrest” due to a magnitude 5.0 earthquake that hit in mid-October. Although the volcano did not erupt in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake, it’s unclear whether that incident contributed to the eruption on Sunday.

Mauna Loa has erupted 33 times since 1843, with its last eruption being recorded in 1984. During that incident, lava flow from the volcano came within 4.5 miles of the island’s largest town, Hilo, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory will coordinate with other emergency management partners to monitor the volcanic activity, it said in the emergency alert. Officials also confirmed it will conduct an overflight to assess future hazards.

Working on 'advancing health equity'

By Adam Andrzejewski @Real Clear Wire

For more than half a century, the American public has known that smoking tobacco can cause cancer and lead to an early death. It seems that isn’t enough for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which is awarding at least $55 million next year for more research in that area.

The Division of Cancer Prevention and Control and the Office of Smoking and Health will give $40 million to “a consortium of population-specific, public health-oriented, national networks to impact tobacco-related and cancer health disparities among specific populations.”

We already know that different populations of Americans smoke more than others — native Americans and some Hispanic communities have high rates of cigarette smoking, and black smokers are much more likely to use menthol tobacco products, according to the American Lung Association.

But the grant is paying researchers in “national networks” $40 million to bring various groups together “with the goals of leveraging and pooling resources, supporting those groups in advancing health equity, and increasing implementation of culturally appropriate interventions deployed through a health equity lens.”

What’s needed, the grant summary argues, is “population-specific” ways to support prevention and control of tobacco use.

These “populations experiencing disparities” have been harmed by “generations of unfair and unjust policies and practices, including the tobacco industry’s aggressive target marketing to certain people and communities.”

A Great Week to Celebrate the Farmer ~ PARALLEL ECONOMIES - AGRICULTURE by Joel Salatin

A proud farmer worth listening to...what abundance we have been given by God and what an enormous responsibility does the farmer have on his shoulders. Here is Joel Salatin who understands just that and who calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. He spoke at Hillsdale last week and it was a riveting and engaging speech. 

When we look through our plate at dinner, what do we see?  Imagine the farms on the other side, the foodscape on the other side, the nutritional commitment on the other side.  Dear folks, we need to make our menus agree with what we know and believe in our minds.

  What I propose here is a long-term solution, an abundant solution, a people-affirming solution.  God help us to love it, do it, embrace it. ~ JS

            This spring when Russia invaded Ukraine, fertilizer prices increased in some cases 400 percent and global grain shipments sputtered, our farm didn’t feel anything because we don’t buy fertilizer and we don’t buy foreign grain.  Suddenly our years of being marginalized by the agri-industrial complex inverted and interest in our methods and madness exploded.  Both farmers and non-farmers began asking “how do we disentangle from the system?”

            “Just in time,” the darling inventory phrase of recent decades, changed to “just in case” as supply lines fractured.  Culturally, a society detached from menial life tasks like farm chores and kitchen duties, suddenly found itself vulnerable to unforeseen fragilities.  The food and farming sector goal switched from efficiency to resiliency.  In the spring of 2020, as covid’s black swan permeated the world, store shelves went bare.  Farmers euthanized (that means killed and threw away) millions of chickens, turkeys, and hogs because mega-processing plants couldn’t maintain operations.

            At our house, we neither worried nor feared because we had freezers full of meat and a basement full of canned garden produce.  I don’t say all this proudly; I say it gratefully, and as a challenge to everyone:  freedom comes from participation.  We’ve spent a couple of generations exiting historically normal tasks and behavior, from integrating livestock and crops, growing gardens, buying locally and cultivating domestic culinary arts.  We even abandoned breast feeding our babies for a couple of decades.

            We thought squeezable cheese and subcontracting kitchen duties to mega-corporate entities, replacing decomposition with chemical fertilizer, honey with refined sugar, and butter with hydrogenated vegetable oil would launch us into a new freedom nirvana.  But instead, it shackled us, enslaved us to nefarious scientists bringing us fertilizer and menus from laboratories instead of from God’s ecological womb.  Those of us who continued to participate in historically-normal farm chores, garden production, local or biologically grown sustenance, and domestic culinary arts are today enjoying more independence and freedom.  You cannot have freedom without participation.

            Here are two questions to ponder.  First, would America’s food system have convulsed as violently if instead of 300 mega-processing facilities employing 5,000 people apiece we funneled our food through 300,000 community-scaled 20-50-employee facilities?  The second question is when rocky disruptions affect our ship of state, would you rather navigate dangerous shoals in a maneuverable speedboat or an aircraft carrier that takes 10 miles to turn around? 

            Let’s examine what a food and farming parallel universe would look like by juxtaposing current objectives with the lunatic fringe alternative.

            1.  CHEAP FOOD VERSUS PRECIOUS FOOD.  If one thing defines American agriculture, it is dedication to cheap food.  American per capita expenditure on food is the lowest in the world; our per capita expenditure on health care is the highest.  Cheap food promised to give us spendable cash to attend football games and casinos, cruises and movies. 

            It created a love affair with Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOS) that became incubators for disease.  Floating on a sea of cheap energy, these facilities promised mechanized farming and pharmaceutical health.  Subtherapeutic antibiotic use created a world of superbugs like mRSA and cDiff.  A brand-new lexicon burst on the American vocabulary:  campylobacter, lysteria, E. coli, salmonella, food allergies, Type 2 diabetes:  these are nature, beaten and abused, on its knees, pleading and begging “Enough!”     

            Instead of God’s designed decomposition driving fertility, petroleum-based chemical fertilizers substituted, like an intravenous feeding tube replacing edible food. In short order, our agriculture system created a dead zone the size of Rhode Island in the Gulf of Mexico, infertile frogs, and three-legged salamanders.  And now our life expectancy is dropping; we’re addicted to pharmaceuticals; physical and emotional maladies plague our nation.

14 MILLION AFGHAN WOMEN WILL BE ENSLAVED BY SHARIA, WHERE ARE THE FEMINISTS?

image from punchingbagpost.com

Afghanistan has never been a bastion of liberal thought. But for a while there we were hopeful, women were going to schools, their dress code (apart from Covid requirements) did not require a face covering, and a certain tolerance for women’s rights was growing.

All of that is done now.

The Taliban will quickly implement Sharia law, and 14 million women will descend into servitude, be required to cover themselves completely, they will not be allowed to go out of the house without a male member of the household with them. They will likely not be able to drive, they will not be able to hold public office, they will be bought and traded as chattel by the men. If they are foolish enough to be raped, it will be their fault. They will be outcasts, and they could be stoned. That is the reality of Sharia law, even in 2021. READ MORE>>>
