NASA Discovers Portals in Space Between the Earth and the Sun

NASA discovers portals in space between the Earth and the Sun (but don’t book your ticket just yet)

NASA has turned science fiction into science fact by announcing the discovery of hidden 'portals' in Earth's magnetic field.

Called X-points or electron diffusion regions, rather than being intergalactic folds in space leading to different galaxies and planets, these portals aid in the transfer of the magnetic field from the Sun to Earth.
A NASA funded research project has discovered the existence of unexplained portals between the Earth and the Sun
Essentially, these portals aid in the transfer of tons of magnetically charged particles that flow from the Sun causing the northern and southern lights and geomagnetic storms.

'We call them X-points or electron diffusion regions,' said University of Iowa plasma physicist Jack Scudder, who is studying them.
'They’re places where the magnetic field of Earth connects to the magnetic field of the Sun, creating an uninterrupted path leading from our own planet to the sun’s atmosphere 93 million miles away.'

Surrounding the Earth at distances from 10,000 to 30,000 miles away, the portals have been observed by NASA's THEMIS spacecraft and Europe's Cluster probes.

Usually the Earth's magnetic field deflects particles from directly traveling to the Earth, but the portals provide a direct route to our atmosphere
In 2014, the U.S. space agency will launch a new mission called Magnetospheric Multiscale Mission (MMS) which will consist of four spacecraft which will circle the earth to locate and then study the 'X-points'

Specifically where the Earth and the Sun's magnetic fields connect and where the unexplained portals are formed.
While Scudder and his team at the University if Iowa are unclear as to what the portals are yet, they have observed charged particles flowing through them, causing electro-magnetic phenomemon in the Earth's atmosphere.
'Magnetic portals are invisible, unstable and elusive. They open and close without warning and there are no signposts to guide us in,' said Scudder.

Some of the portals are miniscule and disappear almost instantly, while some are large and fairly stable.

The magnetic force of lines between the Earth and the Sun is outlined here and it when these lines cross that portals can form

'Magnetic portals are invisible, unstable and elusive. They open and close without warning and there are no signposts to guide us in,' said Scudder.

Looking forward to the launch of the MMS mission in 2014, Scudder and his team have calibrated the technology sufficiently to locate the portals.

'We have found five simple combinations of magnetic field and energetic particle measurements that tell us when we've come across a X-point,' said Scudder.

'A single spacecraft, properly instrumented, can make these measurements.'

My Experience With the Wholeness Blessing

In 1994 I had an awakening.  I grew up in a Christian fundamentalist sect.  I discovered it ruined lives and preached the apocalypse to make money from people's fear. They taught that God would kill 90% of humanity.  People lived in fear of God and future. My networked electronic movement in 1994-2004 freed about 50,000 people from this religion to think for themselves.  I saved some from suicide.  It wasn't just my effort, it was a crowd sourced effort of similar minded souls that expanded into a cottage industry of truth speakers.  I just provided the technology and played referee if the discussion got too heated, as they will with religious topics. Others came behind me who were better writers and other gifts even more suited to the task than I was.

A friend at JPL told me UFOs were real. Her father was in charge of one of Ronald Reagan's Star Wars projects at TRW.  She had asked him about UFOs after FOX TV aired a TV show on Roswell in 1989, he confirmed they were indeed real. He reported to Generals and Admirals. What did a savior mean in a universe of many civilizations? Did all worlds fall from grace?  Or was it not so much a fall, as forgetting who we were? My religion had no answer.  The belief system was and is exclusive. It required an inside and outside.  Yet when I read the Bible it said God made it rain on the just and the unjust, love without discrimination.  I searched for answers. How could I help anyone without answers?   What was duality? Its hard to recognize it when your religion is by definition us vs them. My religion required dualistic thinking.  I found some answers in the teachings Buddhism.  But I don't think Buddhists would own up to me being one of them.  I do like their core beliefs, but they have barnacles of history just like Christianity.  Things that have nothing to do with what the founder taught.

In 2009 I died from blood poisoning.  I had a near death experience. I was told a dimensional change coming.   

Stiglitz says 'Send Bankers to Jail'

Following Barclays' Scandal, Stiglitz says 'Send Bankers to Jail'
Without threat of prosecution, says Nobel economist, expect little to change

Nobel Prize winner and former World Bank economist Joseph Stiglitz has called recent revelations that Barclays and other large banks colluded to defraud their costumers by artificially leveraging international interest rates a "textbook illustration" of how banks use privileged information and lax oversight to reap rewards for themselves while savaging the wider societies in which they operate.

This undated file photo made available by Barclays Bank Monday July 2, 2012 shows the Chairman of United Kingdom-based Barclays bank Marcus Agius in London. The chairman of Barclays announced his resignation Monday July 2, 2012 after accepting responsibility for a price-fixing scandal that saw the bank slapped with trans-Atlantic fines of $453 million. Last week, U.S. and British agencies imposed the fines on Barclays for submitting false data on interbank borrowing rates between 2005 and 2009. The bank's executives have been under fire since then and the calls are growing for chief executive Bob Diamond to quit too. (AP Photo/Barclays Bank/VisualMedia, HO)

In an interview with The Independent on Monday, Stiglitz argued (with Barclay's as just the most recent example) that bankers -- without threat of prosecution or jail time -- would continue to use their elevated status to exploit weak regulations, consolidate power, and avoid accountability.

The scandal at Barclays claimed the resignation on Sunday of Chairman Marcus Agius after traders at the bank admitted manipulating Libor, a baseline interest rate used by banks to set lending costs around the world and which acts as the benchmark, according to an estimate by Reuters, on $350 trillion in derivatives and other financial products.

Stiglitz argues, in paraphrase by interviewer Ben Chu, "that breaking the economic and political power that has been amassed by the financial sector in recent decades, especially in the US and the UK, is essential if we are to build a more just and prosperous society. The first step, he says, is sending some bankers to jail."

The banks, said Stiglitz in the interview, "create the non-transparent market" by dominating the legislative process that is suppose to control it.  "For every meeting that the government has with [bankers], it [should] have to have a meeting with the labor groups and the representatives of civil society," he said. "The problem today is that there’s not equality of access."

And it's not just the banks, Stiglitz says. "Everybody knew that there was this scope for Libor manipulation. Many economists couldn’t believe that it wasn’t going on. We’re focusing on the bankers but at the micro economic level this goes on all the time. I was party to a suit in the state of Alaska. Oil companies were supposed to pay the state royalties – 60 per cent of the net price, the price of oil net of their transportation costs. They manipulated the transportation costs. They had to pay the state of Alaska $1bn. Stealing a penny a time. For every gallon, they stole a penny, or a fraction of a penny. This is in the nature Adam Smith’s invisible hand when there is a lack of transparency."

In a related analysis, Naked Capitalism's Yves Smith, wonders why the Barclays' Libor scandal caused such justifiable outrage in the UK, but generated barely a murmor in the US. And separately, Reuters tracks developments in the Barclays' case as embattled CEO Bob Diamond fends off criticism after Agius' departure.

Countrywide Used Loan Discounts To Buy Congress, Fannie Mae Execs, Other Government Officials: Report

A close friend of mine built the IT infrastructure for Countrywide and left the company in protest in 2005 over what he felt was a "mafia culture".  He wrote his master's thesis on the mafia-like business culture of Countrywide's CEO Angelo Mozilo.  -AK

WASHINGTON — The former Countrywide Financial Corp., whose subprime loans helped start the nation's foreclosure crisis, made hundreds of discount loans to buy influence with members of Congress, congressional staff, top government officials and executives of troubled mortgage giant Fannie Mae, according to a House report.

The report, obtained by The Associated Press, said that the discounts – from January 1996 to June 2008, were not only aimed at gaining influence for the company but to help mortgage giant Fannie Mae. Countrywide's business depended largely on Fannie, which at the time was trying to fend off more government regulation but eventually had to come under government control.

Fannie was responsible for purchasing a large volume of Countrywide's subprime mortgages. Countrywide was taken over by Bank of America in January 2008, relieving the financial services industry and regulators from the messy task of cleaning up the bankruptcy of a company that was servicing 9 million U.S. home loans worth $1.5 trillion at a time when the nation faced a widening credit crisis, massive foreclosures and an economic downturn.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee also named six current and former members of Congress who received discount loans, but all of their names had surfaced previously. Other previously mentioned names included former top executive branch officials and three chief executives of Fannie Mae.

"Documents and testimony obtained by the committee show the VIP loan program was a tool used by Countrywide to build goodwill with lawmakers and other individuals positioned to benefit the company," the report said. "In the years that led up to the 2007 housing market decline, Countrywide VIPs were positioned to affect dozens of pieces of legislation that would have reformed Fannie" and its rival Freddie Mac, the committee said.

Some of the discounts were ordered personally by former Countrywide chief executive Angelo Mozilo. Those recipients were known as "Friends of Angelo."
