A Kaleidoscope of
Breaking Headlines

There's a nor'easter moving along the east coast today. Freezing rain ... but we must be grateful for little favors ... it's not snowing here in the city. I still "see' snow on the rooftops and ground when I look outside so I know it won't be long now. Yesterday I went to the supermarket, which is usually not crowded on Monday, but it was packed is if people were preparing for a blizzard. No need to panic ... always be prepared.

The Duke and Dutchess of Cambridge - William and Kate - wrap up their NYC visit today. I didn't have the pleasure of seeing them live, but everyone loved them, even the children who thought Kate was a storybook princess in the wrong dress.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have attended a basketball game in New York as about 200 people demonstrated nearby against incidents of police violence in the US. They met star player LeBron James and music royalty Jay-Z and Beyonce at the Barclays Center, where the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Brooklyn Nets.

It is going to happen and signifies the end of ACT III
The massive Inferno in LA Monday allowed scientists once again to address the issue of a major earthquake in that area which would result in 1,600 such fires that would decimate the city, the second argots in the US. It's not if the earthquake is going to happen - but when and what should be done to prepare. There simply isn't enough time or money to prepare, not that it's necessary. As we watch increasing earthquake activity along the US west coast into Central and South America, we know it's a matter of time. There will be no rescue by aliens or gods. It will be the final seconds of the hologram before it fades to black as everything will be affected including the global economy which will crash. My cousin Richard, who lives in northern California and therefore follows earthquake activity, feels the greatest danger on the North American continent is the New Madrid Fault Zone. At the end of the day it's all going to come apart.

Lies ... lies .. and more lies ... Torture has been going on since the beginning of warfare in every civilization. So why is this CIA report coming out now? What is the government afraid of? With protests continuing about the unjust judicial system in this country it's as if everything is exploding out of control.

U.S. Marines are on high alert. So are the CIA and the White House for that matter. Politicians on both sides of the aisle also are ready to enter the fray.

A bit of pseudoscience or is it now science ... When people tell me to describe a soul spark I ask if they ever saw a spark of white light sometimes in the periphery of their vision. Most remember having seen such a spark and then they get it. It is electromagnetic energy therefore it is blue/white.
