Approved behind closed doors, curbs that end three centuries of Press freedom

A secretive committee of four ministers yesterday approved a Royal Charter to regulate the Press, provoking claims that politicians are undermining 300 years of freedom of speech.

The Privy Council, which advises the Queen, rubber-stamped the plans after newspapers lost two last ditch legal bids to halt the process.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg chaired a meeting at Buckingham Palace at which Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, Culture Secretary Maria Miller and Liberal Democrat peer Lord McNally were also present.

The Queen was then obliged to grant the Royal Charter.

It grants politicians the right to meddle in Press regulation for the first time since the licensing of newspapers was abolished in 1695.

The plans were drawn up by all three main parties in late night negotiations over pizza with the Hacked Off pressure group. It is the first time in British history that a Royal Charter has been imposed upon an industry without its consent – a move that has provoked criticism that the Queen has become embroiled in political controversy.

On a day of high drama, four newspaper and magazine industry bodies went to the High Court to seek an injunction to prevent the Privy Council proceeding.

But it was only when the hearing was under way that lawyers for the newspapers realised that, without warning the papers, the judges had also decided to rule on a separate application for judicial review of the Privy Council’s ‘unfair, irrational and unlawful’ decision not to approve a rival Royal Charter drawn up by the newspapers.

Humans are simply uncontainable. Get used to it.

“Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. 

Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him.”
― Robert A. Heinlein



"Tyranny, at the core, is a mechanical organization of life…Technocracy is an approach married to the premise that all human actions can be understood, patterned, placed in context and mathematically described.  

But the creative act deals with contexts as computers deal with data.  It shifts them, breaks them apart, reformulates them.  It goes even further.  It descards them and invents new ones, as desired.  And it can operate without any context whatsoever.  That is the unspoken cardinal sin listed by the Great Church of the Information Age.  

A great deal of the official rage against leakers of classified data stems from a basic frustration: the best systems in the world aren't perfect.  This is the technocrat’s nightmare: ‘The system has holes. It’s incomplete.  It can be picked apart. No matter how well we design it, someone wants to hack it.’

Of course someone does.  Because someone doesn’t like air-tight life, which is no life at all.  Build a perfect labyrinth with hundreds of interlocking paths, and someone is going to come along with a lawnmower and cut a new path right out of the prison.

GAIA PORTAL: Transformation of “Old Paradigm Connectors” Occurs Rapidly at this Time…



Transformation of “Old Paradigm Connectors” Occurs Rapidly at this Time…
by ÉirePort

Transformation of "old paradigm connectors" occurs rapidly at this time.

Hue-Beings are advised to release the "saving paradigm".

Current energetics (and supporting Higher grids) align only with New Paradigm connectors.

"Old paradigms" are no longer an option for Gaia residents.

Those attempting to remain at "old paradigm connector" level will be removed from all "New Paradigm" timelines.

Those open to transformation will be guided to selected rescue paths, available for a short time.

"Cooling agents" are now present with Gala and are available to all Hue-Beings upon request.

It is you.

It is fitting that included with the blog today are some words shared a few days ago in California.  Click here and you’ll hear Bob Wright.  He is speaking to all of us.
 
Here are a few more words, speaking to some who may just have joined the program, and are beginning now to understand what it is we have to give.
It is Agape.
 
I see you now
holding the paper
proclaiming my debt
to you
which lives beyond this life of yours
extending debt
controlling falsehoods
grasping for fairness
imagining love can be shown with a price tag
 
The fault is mine
I asked
you gave
it’s become our habit
me asking
you giving
I didn’t know it was love I was buying
 
Now that I do
I won’t ask again
I’ll pay back what I owe
perhaps then you’ll feel love
perhaps not
 
But know this
my love was there before the loan
and it remains there still
 
I don’t think there’s enough
cash
to fill this void you feel
 
but love?
there is plenty.
 
We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Benjamin Fulford - This Halloween will haunt the cabalists for a long time


Use discernment as always.  I believe Ben said a similar thing last Halloween... -Bill

This Halloween will haunt the cabalists for a long time
Benjamin Fulford
October 28, 2013:

There have been many big moves made against the cabal in the past week and more coming this week, according to multiple sources. In Japan, there have been a series of late night battles that have left a group of North Korean gangsters taking orders from Japan Mossad Chief Michael Green, and rogue CIA run by Kenneth Curtis, on the Run. As a result, Green and Curtis are in a state of deep fear, according to Japanese right wingers who claim to have been involved in the struggle. Ongoing lawsuits against the recent rigged elections in Japan are also keeping them awake at night.

In a related development, mass murderer Benjamin Netanyahu announced to the Israeli press last week that he was going to visit the Pope but the Pope refused to meet him, resulting in a major loss of face. Bush Jr. and Tony Blair both visited the previous pope Maledict to ask for protection from war crimes tribunals after leaving office. They were given that protection in exchange for converting to Catholicism. It seems the new Vatican regime is no longer in the business of sheltering war criminals from justice. That means Netanyahu does not have protection from the P2 brass and is thus probably doomed.

As this newsletter was going to press a P2 Freemason source called to say that P2 honcho Marco di Mauro had just been arrested and that a hunt was on for his associates.

There were many other developments as well. Rockefeller pet dinosaur Henry Kissinger went to Russia on a begging mission but was refused a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to Pentagon sources.

This attempted meeting came just as multiple signs showed the Rockefeller petro-dollar system was collapsing. The announcement by the government of Saudi Arabia that it was going to re-evaluate its relations with the United States and refuse a seat on the Security Council of the Rockefeller controlled UN means the House of Saud may stop putting its petro-dollars in cabal controlled banks in the US.

Present Singularity of Mass Upgrading Continues Harmonious Process for Establishment of Gaia Higher Self




Present Singularity of Mass Upgrading Continues Harmonious Process for Establishment of Gaia Higher Self
by ÉirePort

Present singularity of mass upgrading continues harmonious process for establishment of Gaia Higher Self.

Beings of Enlightenment are in development as energetic grids continue upgrade process.

Essentials are finished. Details are in final stages, nearing completion.

"Singularity of mass upgrading" is the point of no return.

[ÉirePort note: the term "singularity" appears best defined as:

"A point of infinite density and infinitesimal volume, at which space and time become infinitely distorted according to the theory of General Relativity. According to the big bang theory, a gravitational singularity existed at the beginning of the universe. Singularities are also believed to exist at the center of black holes."

The singularity term here would imply a point preceding a "big bang" in overall Gaia consciousness.]

NASDAQ says options trading in major indexes
resumes after halt

NASDAQ says options trading in major indexes resumes after halt

Tue Oct 29, 2013 1:39pm EDT
(Reuters) - Nasdaq OMX (NDAQ.O) said on Tuesday that options trading had resumed in a number of widely followed indexes after a halt where the exchange failed to disseminate value for the Nasdaq 100 .NDX.

The exchange also said its Global Index Data Service had "experienced a brief disruption of service" with no impact to equity exchange operations, and that it was investigating the issue.

Earlier, Nasdaq said its PHLX and Nasdaq Options Market exchanges had halted options trading in the Nasdaq 100, as well as the PHLX Semiconductor .SOX, PHLX Oil Service .OSX and PHLX Housing .HGX sectors because it was not disseminating values for the indexes.

The news was the latest technical issue to befall the exchange, which has struggled to repair its reputation following some high-profile problems, most notably the botched initial public offering of Facebook Inc (FB.O).

"I don't know what it is, but it appears they have an unusual proportion of technical problems there," said Stephen Massocca, managing director at Wedbush Equity Management LLC in San Francisco. "You would think they would be on their tippy-toes making sure everything was absolutely correct over there ... at this point, it's more than just luck."

The exchange also said it is not generating values for the Nasdaq 100 index, the benchmark of the PowerShares QQQ Trust exchange-traded fund (QQQ.O), one of the most traded ETFs.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia hires G4S to spy on politicians

29 Oct 2013 by Clark Kent

An undercover surveillance operation ordered by the Commonwealth Bank has embroiled the institution in a spying scandal, with senior MPs monitored and photographed by private detectives investigating one of its critics.

Michael Fraser
The bank hired security firm G4S to conduct ”Operation Lantern”, round-the-clock surveillance on consumer advocate and anti-banking lobbyist Michael Fraser (pictured right) between August 28 and September 1. G4S, which conducted the security operation for the London Olympics, claims it is ”a world leader in providing compliance and investigation related services”.

Internationally, surveillance operations by governments and private firms are attracting increasing criticism and allegations of infringing privacy.

In a memo obtained by Fairfax Media, the bank requested photographs of people Mr Fraser met to ”allow for the identification of individuals”, and said it was trying to confirm if Mr Fraser was receiving information from bank insiders.

On those dates Mr Fraser was travelling from Brisbane to Sydney to attend a fund-raising dinner for Coalition senator John Williams, who is part of a Senate inquiry involving CBA with Labor senator Doug Cameron.

Other guests included former NSW opposition leader Kerry Chikarovski, entertainer Kamahl and liquidator John Sheahan. It was organised by lawyer Stewart Levitt, who is behind a class action against the bank. Also attending was Geoff Shannon, an aggrieved CBA customer who established the Unhappy Banking advocacy group and barrister Geoff Slater who is acting for Mr Shannon.

Senator Williams said when he found out about the spying, his initial thought was “What the hell is going on here? Why am I being monitored by some mob employed by the Commonwealth Bank?”

'We're Really Screwed Now': NSA's Best Friend Just Shivved The Spies

One of the National Security Agency's biggest defenders in Congress is suddenly at odds with the agency and calling for a top-to-bottom review of U.S. spy programs. And her long-time friends and allies are completely mystified by the switch.

"We're really screwed now," one NSA official told The Cable. "You know things are bad when the few friends you've got disappear without a trace in the dead of night and leave no forwarding address."

In a pointed statement issued today, Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Dianne Feinstein said she was "totally opposed" to gathering intelligence on foreign leaders and said it was "a big problem" if President Obama didn't know the NSA was monitoring the phone calls of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. She said the United States should only be spying on foreign leaders with hostile countries, or in an emergency, and even then the president should personally approve the surveillance.

It was not clear what precipitated Feinstein's condemnation of the NSA. It marks a significant reversal for a lawmaker who not only defended agency surveillance programs -- but is about to introduce a bill expected to protect some of its most controversial activities.

Your Mind is On Vacation..... 
Date: Mon, 28 Oct 2013 10:28:54 -0400


Van Morrison: Your Mind Is On Vacation
 Lyrics 
Songwriters: MOSE ALLISON

Sitting there yakkin’ right in my face 
Coming on like you own the place 
If silence was golden 
You couldn’t raise a dime 
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

You’re quoting figures, you're dropping names 
You’re telling stories, you're playing games 
You always laugh when things ain’t funny 
You try to sound like you don't need money 
If talk was criminal, you'd lead a life of crime 
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime

You know that life is short and talk is cheap 
Don't make promises that you can't keep 
If you don't like the song I’m singing, just grin and bear it 
All I can say is if the shoe fits wear it 
If you must keep talking please can you make it rhyme 
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime 
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime 
Cause your mind is on vacation and your mouth is working overtime 

Greetings and salutations,

Pay special attention to the words in our theme song this week, as it certainly explains why the entire "government structure" is suffering from total madness. It certainly may not feel like it, but all who are reading these words should celebrate yourselves as being the true warriors who have been holding the "Light" for the coming changes.

Whatever you believe, know that the President is receiving daily spiritual guidance from his appointed spiritual adviser, Joshua DuBois. Below is one example of the daily "devotional" in his daily spiritual pause of reflection.

"Dear God, in the night time, remind me of the day. In the darkness remind me of your Light. I have confidence in the coming morning, and until then I will stand strong.”
Amen

On a personal note, I thank all for your kindness and prayers. It has sustained me as my healing journey continues to progress. Your outreach has been extremely humbling....paypal.com...account goneforthfornow@gmail.com ...Susan

Hi All,

Feels like christmas, and there is snow on the ground now. Really. we got some inches.

Dinar is active. People are cashing out. Not official, yet, but some groups are getting theirs done (the ones that have been waiting so long).

More questions, and a few shots from some ghostly guy.

Q: Hello! I read at the Fourwinds Web site that Chase Bank, as of Nov.16th, will be in control of the American business’ funds, allowing only $50,000 for operational expenses. Other banks will soon follow suit. For recipients of the many programs soon to be paid out, what alternatives are there for us who will be implementing positive change in our nation? I know there are offshore options, but are there any other options we should be privy to? M

A: Sorry M. I cannot give out that advice. Not my province. Suffice to say that if you buy commodities, then they are transferable to other jurisdictions under various tax treaties, free-trade agreements, and so on. There are many ways to skin a cat, but I cannot give such advice. However, it is true that international wire transfers will be stopped by JP Morgan at first, with a $50k cap on domestic transfers per person per month. Other banks will follow, of course. This will happen unless there is an outcry. Again, write to your political rep, and give him ##### for not representing you the way you want or need. his job is to do it, and you are paying him to do it. So, what kind of employer are you when your employees run you?

Google's mystery barge anchored off of San Francsico's Treasure Island





by American Kabuki

Google has created a four story barge of stacked containerized servers according to San Francisco TV station KPIX.  The salty monstrosity of a data warehouse has no permit for its permanent anchoring in the high tech city's bay.




Yahoo News reports:
There’s just one major problem: many of these same experts say Google hasn’t sought the proper permits to open any such operation.

“Google has spent millions on this,” one anonymous source close to the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC) told the station. “But they can’t park this barge on the waterfront without a permit, and they don’t have one.”

A second source confirmed that Google has inquired about “hypothetical operations” that would be water-based but has not specified how or for what purpose any such enterprise would be employed.

Another challenging facing any such enterprise would be in justifying why Google would need the new operation to be water-based.

“The law is crystal clear in this case: The Bay is not to be used for something that can be built on land,” BCDC director Larry Goldzband told the station.

As God Sees


This is how we look to god. 



Adorable, funny, dancing, curious, full of life, limitless, faultless, open

Respond to and care for yourself as if you were your own child.  How you are nurtured is the determining factor in your life.  As you feel love and joy for yourself you will be that for others.

What do you want?  Who do you want to be when you get it?  Love yourself as you would a child, without reservation.

Blame and fault finding are heavy burdens.  Let them go.

Each moment is a step taken on the path to your future.  It is the chosen color for this piece of art that is your life.  It is the answer you’ve given to these questions: “What is your life?”  “Who are you becoming?”  “Who do you choose to be?”  “What will you need to be her/him?”  “What would she/he do now?” 

Time becomes irrelevant as you become your own answer.  The one you are waiting for resides in you.

When Does The Universe Compute?

When Does The Universe Compute?

The idea that every physical event is a computation has spread like wildfire through science. That may need to change now that physicists have worked out how to distinguish between systems that compute and those that don’t

One of the hot topics in computer science is unconventional computing. This is the exploitation of unusual or exotic systems to perform computations.

Examples are numerous. Perhaps the most advanced is quantum computation which exploits the strange laws of quantum mechanics to perform computation. But there are other more exotic approaches such as using DNA to perform millions of simple calculations in parallel or even using slime mould to solve mazes.

Indeed some scientists claim that every physical event is a computation. Others disagree saying that this simply redefines the notion of a physical process and is either wrong or trivial.

That leads to an interesting and important question. What does it mean for a physical system to compute? Can researchers decide objectively whether a physical system is computing or not?

Today, we get an answer thanks to the work of Clare Horsman at the University of Oxford in the UK and a few buddies. These guys say that a physical computation is the use of a physical system to predict the outcome of an abstract evolution. As such, it is closely related to, but crucially different from, the notion of theory and experiment .

Disarmament Commission – Civilian Weapon Confiscation Study Group

New York, 29-31 July 2013

The issue of military grade weaponry in the hands of civilians looms ever larger in the face of the global implementation of 22/Agenda 21 by member nations. In particular, the United States of America by an estimated 500 million weapons in the hands of its civilian population. This is not just a static problem, it is a massive dynamic problem for the process of confiscation as there will be those who refuse to surrender their firearms.

The conclusion of discussions by the CWCSG led to the adoption of a proposed agenda to begin the process for introducing to member nations a framework by which they can begin codification of national laws to disarm civilians within their borders through a graduated process.

Within the discussion framework, we have identified several problem areas that must be addressed, they are:
  1. Classification of military grade weapons to be made illegal for possession.

  2. Creation of programs to provide reasonable compensation for voluntary surrender of said arms.

  3. Codification of laws to beging the restriction of strict licensing of said arms.

  4. Codification of laws to begin the restricting of and strict licensing of concealable firearms.

  5. Codification of laws to restrict the sale of, and possession of ammunition and components to manufacture ammunition.

  6. Finally, codification of laws to completely make any and all firearms illegal to own, possess or use outside of military and law enforcement usage.

  7. Creation of a United Nations Police Taskforce with the specific mission of assisting member nations with the collection of weaponry from civilian hands.
The CWCSG will submit its findings and final recommendations once we have created the codification framework for member nations for a full review by the Office of Secretary General.

Spiritual author Marianne Williamson, running for Rep. Henry Waxman’s Congressional seat, to appear in Redondo Beach

Noted spiritual author Marianne Williamson is running for the 33rd Congressional District seat held by Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman. 

By City News Service
POSTED: 10/24/13, 9:41 AM PDT |
REDONDO BEACH — Spiritual author and lecturer Marianne Williamson will discuss her campaign for the 33rd Congressional District seat held by Rep. Henry Waxman during an appearance tonight at the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore in Redondo Beach.

Williamson is scheduled to be at the bookstore at 2810 Artesia Blvd. from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

Williamson declared her candidacy Sunday, telling supporters at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, “it’s time for a politics of conscience, a new chapter in our history in which love is not minimized, the voices of women and children are not marginalized and the future of the United States is not bartered for a pot of unrighteous gold.”

Williamson said her main issue is the undue influence of moneyed interests on the political system.

“We have developed over the last few decades a system of legalized corruption in the United States in which those with money are accorded much more political influence than those who are without,” Williamson said. “And that is not democracy.”

Ben Fulford: Like a junkie selling family heirlooms the US corporate government buys time






Like a junkie selling family heirlooms the US corporate government buys time
Benjamin Fulford

October 22, 2013

The US corporate government and the mafia families that own it managed to stave off default on October 17th by acting like a junkie selling family heirlooms to a pawnshop in order to buy a few more days’ worth of drugs. In one example, they sold a whole bunch of state of the art helicopters, including Blackhawks and Apaches to China for an undisclosed sum, according to Pentagon sources. Partial confirmation of this can be found here:

http://theaviationist.com/2013/10/14/apache-clone/#.UmIB3RC1vfk

These same fascist families also sold a bunch of cruise missiles and cluster bombs to the totalitarian gulf monarchies.

http://rt.com/news/us-gulf-bombs-missiles-357/

The Rothschild branch of these families, for its part, worked out a deal where the Chinese would build French nuclear reactors of dubious safety and reliability in the UK, according to MI5 sources and news reports. The Chinese will also be paid double the going rate for energy produced by these reactors, according to MI5. That is a good sign the cabal got money from China now in exchange for a promise to pay them back by squeezing British energy users later.

Half of nation's foreclosed homes still occupied


Its quite amazing this nonsense still goes on almost 5 years after 2008, banks who had no real money at risk of their own, insured against mortgage failures and collected it (and in many cases insured with 4 or 5 different insurance companies - which is insurance fraud - remember AIG insured debt against loss), then are able to foreclose on homes for which they own absolutely no title...violating all the laws that define what a mortgage is and how they operate... -Bill

Half of nation's foreclosed homes still occupied
By Les Christie | CNNMoney.com – 14 hours ago

Foreclosure sounds like the end of the line, but actual eviction can take months or years -- even after the bank has repossessed a home.

RealtyTrac estimates that 47% of the nation's foreclosed homes are currently occupied. The percentage actually tops 60% in some hot housing markets, like Miami and Los Angeles.
Those still living in repossessed homes include both former owners and renters. Either way, their time in the homes is mortgage and rent free.

To arrive at its estimate, RealtyTrac compared its database of foreclosed homes with postal records showing whether mail was still being collected and whether change-of-address forms had been filed.

Even when occupants leave voluntarily, old owners typically take about two months to vacate.
With renters, it can take a year or more. "If someone has a bona fide rental agreement, we have to abide by that," said Amy Bonitatibus, a spokeswoman for JP Morgan Chase.

One issue, according to Wells Fargo spokesman Tom Goyda, is that the eviction process can take months as it winds through the legal process. The timing varies widely based on local laws and the backlog of cases in individual courts.

Goyda said the bank has been trying to speed up the process by offering cash to prompt occupants to leave.

In addition, some states, like Alabama and Utah, have so-called redemption periods of up to a year during which former owners can get their home back if they can find the means to pay off their mortgages.

And banks may be in no rush to kick people out. They will take their time in markets with a lot of homes for sale and depressed prices. Plus, letting homeowners stick around can help protect homes from abuse.

"Although one thinks lenders take losses by not moving evictions forward, they're still faring better by keeping the properties occupied," said Pauliana Lara of the Consumer Action Law Group in Los Angeles, which works with homeowners to fight foreclosures. "Many foreclosed homes get vandalized or squatters move in."

Illusory Failure



This year, my son’s art teacher started every student out with an F.  This grade remains unchanged until all their assignments are turned in.  This is supposed to be motivating.  Each student spends the majority of the school year with a failing grade, which sets off a string of emails and phone calls to anxious parents, reminding everyone involved, on an almost daily basis, of the child’s impending “failure”.  Rather than working to create an inspired piece of art, the kids are instead merely working to avoid flunking.

You were never shown how to do this simply.  Like this teacher, you were taught to look for reward, satisfaction, answers and validation outside of yourself.  You were told there is one right answer, and that there was someone else who held it.  There is also one true love, one happily ever after, one right way, one correct color to wear at a specific ceremony. You were taught to obey.  You expect to be loved in a specific way.  You look for truth in every illusory part of your world.

You didn’t have a chance.  Like the students in this art class – you were marked from the get go with expectation of failure.  Those who manage to escape the label and “succeed” are left sort of hollow afterwards; the success illusory.

Against all odds, you must believe your heart.  Your essence is the only thing you’ll take with you when you exit.  Your life review?  It has nothing to do with imagined ideas of success or its absence.  It is told from the deepest part of your being.

This is the part of you that looks past everything you see with your eyes.  This is the part of you that feels without seeing.  It is the part of you that knows.

The yearning within for someone or something is not going to be satisfied in the places you’ve been told to look.  It exists in the fabric of your being.  The very youngest of us know where it is.  It is fully intact in them.  We are drawn to their energy because we recognize agape.

The construct of this world is shifting.  We read of space ships, collapsing economies and corrupt institutions.  We are all searching, grasping for solid ground.  We are learning that there is in fact no such thing as solid.

This is good news.  With us all on an even playing field they’ll be fewer injuries.  Flexibility, trust and compassion are necessary, as well as a wide open heart.

We’ll navigate more easily as our freedom is felt.  Others will be drawn to us as our heart broadcasts this inner direction.  The answers we seek and the satisfaction we yearn for will be joyfully, sometimes tearfully discovered.  Just hang in there.

Each connection will renew the truth of our unity.  There is no you or me.  There is only us.  This song reminds me of our dance…. we live, we leave, we return, play our part, end up together one more time and ultimately challenge each other, asking the question: “Will you love me again?” 



We’ve come to end the judgment, labels and blame.  We’ve come to experience agape.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Gold found growing in eucalyptus trees in world-first CSIRO research


Geoscientists in Perth have discovered gold particles in the leaves, twigs and bark of eucalyptus trees, claiming a "eureka" moment which could revolutionise gold mining.

CSIRO researchers believe the trees, sitting on top of gold deposits buried deep underground, suck up the gold in their search for moisture during times of drought.

"We weren't expecting this at all," Dr Melvyn Lintern, a research geochemist at the CSIRO and the study's lead author, said.

"To actually see the gold particles in the leaves was quite a eureka moment for us."

Dr Lintern said the trees appear to be telling scientists what is happening under the earth's surface.

"The particular trees that we did the research on appear to be bringing up gold from a remarkable 30 metres depth, which is about the equivalent of a 10-storey building," he said.

The research group used the CSIRO's Maia detector for x-ray elemental imaging at the Australian Synchrotron in Melbourne to analyse extremely small particles at high resolution.

The portions of gold are about one-fifth the diameter of a human hair. Dr Lintern said even 500 trees growing over a gold deposit would only yield enough gold for a wedding ring.

The researchers said they have also found gold in the leaves of other trees, such as the Acacia mulga.

"We've actually found gold not only in trees but in shrubs that are growing beneath the trees as well, so (it is) not restricted to any particular trees at all," Dr Lintern said.

Discovery could make exploration cheap, quicker

The discovery, the first of its kind in the world and the first time gold particles have been found in living material, will undoubtedly generate huge interest from within the gold mining and exploration industry.

Former Newmont Mining Geochemist, Nigel Radford, says the implications for gold exploration are huge.

"A lot of this stuff has been speculated about for some time, but the identification of the gold particles in the leaf materials is completely convincing and very, very important for the future of mineral exploration," said Mr Radford, who has worked in mineral exploration his entire working life, most recently with US-based Newmont, one of the world's biggest gold mining companies.

Mr Radford believes it has the potential to make gold exploration much quicker and cheaper.

"Ideally, any mineral exploration team would like to collect their samples on-surface," he said.

"If you can sample on-surface, it saves all the cost and all the time involved in drilling holes."

Gaia Calls for “Essentials Awareness” at this Moment…



Gaia Calls for “Essentials Awareness” at this Moment…
by ÉirePort

Gaia calls for "essentials awareness" in all matters at this moment.

Higher D guidings are primary. Secondaries, tertiaries, are being requested to be shelved, at this moment.

Hue-manity activities must now align with Gaia Purpose.

All Hue-Beings are "called", as it were, to team with the Whole Gaia Consciousness, and to set aside individual ego desires.

There is only one Being at this moment... and that is Gaia.

Cosmic influxes are continuing to dissolve (eliminate) separation paradigms, on all levels.

Unification of Gala Higher Consciousness with Hue-manity is prime at this moment.

hu-manity will follow, shortly, however Hue-manity is called, strongly, to accept and embrace their lead rôle at this moment.

Portals for hu-manity Unfoldment Have Opened…



Portals for hu-manity Unfoldment Have Opened…
by ÉirePort

Portals for hu-manity unfoldment have opened and allow such beings to experience full awakening to Higher Self.

Establishment of secure growth portals has been restricted, until the current moment. hu-manity whole consciousness levels have risen sufficiently to allow this next step.

Fortification of such portals permits large numbers of hu-manity to enter as group, as well as individual, entities.

Jake Ducey -- What if You Took the Risk?




Jake Ducey -- What if You Took the Risk?October 22, 2013

Do you feel it too? That feeling that you know you must follow. But the mind says not to do it. That it’s too risky. That it’s unsafe. That it’s too crazy and different and nerve racking.

But what I believe is the most dangerous thing to do is to give up your desires, your dreams, due to the fear of the unknown. It’s all a risk; to stay where you are, or to take a leap, to be different or fit in.

Now is the time that we must step into that feeling. The one that makes no sense to your mind, the one that makes no sense to other people; only to your heart. The whisper of your soul may sound faint and irrational, but no one who settled for safe and ordinary has ever found his or her true north.

I know it’s scary to leave behind what dismisses the freedom of your soul, but just beyond your edge there is a new horizon. So much beauty, so many new colors and feelings and surprises await on the new sunrise of today's choice.

Energetic Upgrades for Selected Hue-manity Groups are in Process



Energetic Upgrades for Selected Hue-manity Groups are in Process
by ÉirePort

Energetic upgrades for selected Hue-manity groups are in process at this moment.

This is in addition to general consciousness upgrades occurring in all of Gala's inhabitants.

Fracturing and dissolution of outdated low frequency paradigms has allowed this step.

"Selected Hue-manity groups" includes many continuing to set directions from energetic levels not yet suited for Gaia whole, and primarily addresses vibrational dis-harmonies.

Interests of all Gaia inhabitants are honored at this time.

WASH. STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL SUES ANTI-GMO LABELING GROUP FOR LAUNDERING DONATIONS



WASH. STATE ATTORNEY GENERAL SUES ANTI-GMO LABELING GROUP FOR LAUNDERING DONATIONS

Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed suit against the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) Wednesday, following earlier reports that revealed the group was laundering donation money to oppose I-522, Washington’s GMO-labeling initiative.

GMA members including PepsiCo, Kraft, and Coca-Cola experienced massive public backlash for donating millions against California’s labeling proposition, the GMA created the “Defense of Brands Strategic Account” for Washington state, an avenue to funnel and conceal its members’ donations.

“Truly fair elections demand all sides follow the rules by disclosing who their donors are and how much they are spending to advocate their views,” Ferguson said in a press release. “The GMA explicitly attempted in their own words, to shield members from criticism for opposing Initiative 522.”

Unknown GMA members have so far donated a total of $7.2 million, becoming 522′s largest opposition group, surpassing Monsanto, Dow, Bayer and Dupont. Given the large donation amount, the GMA is now responsible for the largest campaign disclosure violation in Washington state history.

“$7.2 million is awful lot of money to conceal from the public where they are making a decision about an initiative. The people of the state of Washington feel strongly about disclosure through our campaigns,” Ferguson said. “That’s why we’re bringing this action, and that’s why we want to send a message of deterrence as well for future violators.”

The Spotlight of Transparency Illuminates Everything.



The Spotlight of Transparency Illuminates Everything.
Posted By D.
AT: http://removingtheshackles.blogspot.com/2013/10/the-spotlight-of-transparency.html

For clarity and transparency, the following is a conversation I had a couple of days ago. As it had to do with the claim of nontransparent communications, I felt it best to put it out here publicly so that everyone can see it- in FULL TRANSPARENCY.

**************************

Stop the Presses!




The plan was to immerse ourselves in the local, become agents for change in our own community, so we ordered the area newspaper.  That was two months ago. It is supposed to be delivered 4 days a week.  We were lucky if it showed up ½ that much.

The engagement started out friendly, merely asking for a credit for the missed deliveries.  As it developed into a regular occurrence, (we were surprised when it showed up); contact became a bit testier.  It was the subject of our conversations each day.  “Did we get the paper today?”  We expected to be disappointed, and frustration emerged as our expectations were met.

Until this week.  We cancelled the deliveries and forgot all about it.  There was no thinking about it, discussion or resulting emotion.  We’ve gotten a paper every single day.  Go figure.

What can be said here that you haven’t heard?  Consciousness asks us to stand always at attention.  It is the opposite of sleep.  Slavery cannot emerge from oneness.  Unity is not possible if “us” and “them” are perceived.  There is only One.

The solution is not to fight.  It is to become; to realize your sovereignty; to unconditionally cherish; to absolutely love.

As soon as we stop looking outside of ourselves for fault or blame or truth or value – we will find agape.  At the end of every moment let it be said that above all – you loved.

Everywhere still there is separation and slavery. The difference is we can see it now.  The gift of these times is that our eyes are open and they are seeing 20/20.  No longer blinded by fear, we can visualize a world of sovereign beings.  This is the world we’ll create as we shed the bonds of ownership and servitude.

Be gentle with yourself and everyone else.  The pull is strong to depend on and blame each other.  Assertion rather than aggression will effect the longest lasting change.  In anger rests an assumption of separation.  Passion and enthusiasm are key components; name calling and finger pointing aren’t.

This shift is happening to all of us.  There is not your way or my way that is right; there is our way.  We all have our part.  Every emotion is perfect, and each thought creative.  With every day dawns the possibility for the new.

If there was one thing only to gain from these words it would be this – our compulsion to seek answers elsewhere does not serve our stated intent – freedom.  One who is free asks and serves no one.  Freedom is not granted so much as assumed.  We will not take back something we’ve never lost.

There is a subtle shift as we stop waiting and instead become.  Don’t miss it or disregard its importance.  There are no insignificant moments.  Self love happens in small increments.  Acceptance brings peace and what becomes room for the creation of a blissful life.  Note the difference in how it feels to fix something that is wrong with you versus creating a new version.

Many of us perceive physical and financial maladies.  Belief is the most powerful creative force.  Instead of changing what we believe is a real problem, create a version more appealing.  Thus we are releasing that creative force which holds our beliefs firmly in place.

Against all reasonable, logical and rational sense – see only what you want and hold that vision.  Utilize all available contrasting options as a stark backdrop to the life you’ve been wanting.  Stop reading someone else’s version.  This is yours and you alone hold the determining blueprint for its manifestation.

You are the One you’ve been waiting for.
