Haiti Earthquake

It is true that the US reaction to the Haiti earthquake has been strange and amounted to a military takeover. There have also been a number of earthquakes at strategically sensitive areas recently . So I did a bit of digging.

It didn’t take me long to find news comming from countries unfriendly to the US. The claim is that the Haiti earthquake was caused by the US Navy using a new weapon called HAARP.

Hugo Chavez from Venezuala went as far as accusing the US of trialing this weapon on Haiti so it can be used on Iran later.



So the key questions are


1. Could such a weapon be built?
2. If it was built would the US use it?


In answer to the first question 


The an official on the US State department claims that it would be likely that other countries have such a weapon.


Here’s the exchange, taken verbatim from the transcript of  Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen posted on the Defense Department’s Website:

“Q: Let me ask you specifically about last week’s scare here in Washington, and what we might have learned from how prepared we are to deal with that (inaudible), at B’nai Brith.

A: Well, it points out the nature of the threat. It turned out to be a false threat under the circumstances. But as we’ve learned in the intelligence community, we had something called — and we have James Woolsey here to perhaps even address this question about phantom moles. The mere fear that there is a mole within an agency can set off a chain reaction and a hunt for that particular mole which can paralyze the agency for weeks and months and years even, in a search. The same thing is true about just the false scare of a threat of using some kind of a chemical weapon or a biological one. There are some reports, for example, that some countries have been trying to construct something like an Ebola Virus, and that would be a very dangerous phenomenon, to say the least. Alvin Toeffler has written about this in terms of some scientists in their laboratories trying to devise certain types of pathogens that would be ethnic specific so that they could just eliminate certain ethnic groups and races; and others are designing some sort of engineering, some sort of insects that can destroy specific crops. Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves. 

So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It’s real, and that’s the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that’s why this is so important.”

Below is a video about HAARP



In answer to the question  “If it was built would the US use it?” well I’m not sure. But I know is that it’s pretty scary and I think the US government is pretty out of control right now. hmmm.


Below is a theory as to why Haiti was taken over. The theory is that Venezuela signed a deal with China to supply oil to China at the end of the year. The reason Haiti was occupied was so Venezuela could be blockaded to prevent China from getting the oil hmm interesting. I need to research this.

Another video that claims that the US army were in the middle of a drill to save Haiti from a hurricaine

I have just spent a little time looking into the “drill” and it looks like it really did happen.

“On Monday, Jean Demay, DISA’s technical manager for the agency’s Transnational Information Sharing Cooperation project, happened to be at the headquarters of the U.S. Southern Command in Miami preparing for a test of the system in a scenario that involved providing relief to Haiti in the wake of a hurricane. After the earthquake hit on Tuesday, Demay said SOUTHCOM decided to go live with the system.”

Facts about Australia

After my Mum and Dad visiting Australia I thought I should put to task a big misconception about Australia being a dry and large dessert. It is true there are large amounts of dessert but there is also alot of arable land here too.

Australia is ranked #7 in the world with the number of cultivated land by country. The whole world 17,000 sq kilometers of cultivated land which is 11.61% of all land

2 India
3 China
4 Russia
5 Brasilland use by country from wikipeadia
6 Canada
7 Australia has 471k sq Kilometers which is 6% of total area

In fact Australia is a breadbasket here is a link to all the produce from the country

Australia is the world #1 provider of wool and lupins source produces more hops and barley than the UK

The origin of the name New Zealand

We are in New Zealand below is a map of where we are going on our trip (with markers indicating where we are staying)

Ever wondered where New Zealand got it’s name?

Zeeland (About this sound pronunciation ), also called Zealand in English and Zeelandic, is a province of the Netherlands. The province, located in the south-west of the country, consists of a number of islands (hence its name, meaning “sea-land“) and a strip bordering Belgium. Its capital is Middelburg. With a population of about 380,000, its area is about 2930 km², of which almost 1140 km² is water. Large parts of Zeeland are below sea level. The last great flooding of the area was in 1953. Tourism is an important economic activity. Its sunny beaches make it a popular holiday destination in the summer. Most tourists are Germans. In some areas, the population can be two to four times higher during high summer season. The coat of arms of Zeeland shows a lion half-emerged from water, and the text “luctor et emergo” (Latin for “I struggle and I emerge”).” Zeeland (About this sound pronunciation ), also called Zealand in English and Zeelandic, is a province of the Netherlands.

The dangers of Cellphones

After the HAARP post I was doing some more digging into Dr Nick Beggich who introduced the movie about HAARP. I found that his father was a democratic senator who died under suspicious circumstances and he also had another video about the dangers of mobile phones which I actually found quite credible where he talked about Dr George Carlo a scientist employed by lobbyists to the mobile phone industry.

Here is His video

Here is the video with Dr George Carlo

There was also a Scandinavian research that has been taken place

May 17, 2005
A Swedish study finds that users of digital phones in rural areas may be at greater risk of brain cancer. Its authors say the link is troubling, although they acknowledge that the amount of data is small and wider research is needed to amplify the findings.

The researchers said that incidence of brain tumors in rural areas of Sweden was much higher among users of GSM cell phones than among rural residents who were not cell phone users. The rate was also higher than among GSM users in urban areas.
The chance of developing a malignant brain tumor was roughly eight times

Energy Efficient light globes are harmful

I have long suspected that the claims made for energy efficient light globes is nonsense so armed with google I did a bit of research

The claim for energy efficient globes (Compact fluorescent lamp)

  • More environmentally Friendly

  • Use less electricity

  • As good as existing light globes
  • Last Longer

Let me take these items one at a time

More environmentally Friendly
These bulbs are much more energy and resource intensive to manufacture and they also contain mercury making them difficult to dispose of properly.
Use less electricity
They do use less electricity however they are basically using the same technology as old fashioned fluorescent strip lights and they share the efficiency profile of these. If you turn these lights and never turn them off they use about a quarter of the energy of a conventional bulb. However if you turn your lights on and off frequently (like we do) then the efficiency goes right down because these bulbs (just like fluorescent strip lights are a lot less efficient when being turned on and off).

As good as existing light globes
I hate the light from these (the wave spectra is different). They also take a while to get to full brightness. They have also been shown to cause epilepsy and they can buzz. The EPA take the safety and disposal of these pretty seriously if you break one you need to evacuate the room for 15 minutes and dispose of the bulb in a glass jar
Last Longer
I suspect if you have a modern house with electrics then they would last longer but I frequently have these (expensive) babies blow on me. Also as they get older they get less bright. The life is also dramatically shortened by turning them on and off.
