Fat Tuesday

February 28, 2017

Mardi Gras -- Google News

The morning news opened with a story from Bourbon Street in New Orleans showing people celebrating through the night and into this morning. Mardi Gras, or Fat Tuesday, is the last day of the Carnival season and globally, it's known as one of the most over-the-top days to party. In the U.S., New Orleans is the center of the all-you-can-eat, drink and party action. But there are plenty of parades, festivals and fun times to be had across the country for those who love to get their groove on before Ash Wednesday or Lent.

Known as the birthplace of Mardi Gras, Mobile, Alabama has some of the country's most colorful celebrations. The streets of downtown Mobile are filled with live marching bands, colored floats and crowds of parade goers. The parades run from February 10-28. Read more

The Daily Take

Tuesday - The biggest creator of Fake News is the guy who tweets about it. His first address to Congress is tonight - I'll be asleep. Stephen Colbert is live tonight. Last night, his guest was Jon Stewart who once again expressed his regrets about giving up his talk show before the Trump Era.

Monday - With everything coming to a head, I really don't have the patience to follow the daily take on political dramas. And so I go about my day finding things to blog about that don't have to do with Trump ... if possible. I trust disclosure happens before he gets impeached. At that time there will be others coming forward with definitive proof of our connections to aliens and the rest, another tangled web filled with discrepancies, diversions, and distractions. Much of the dissemination of this information will be brought forth by leaders from other countries including Russia, China, Mexico, Japan, UK, more.

What if the US Power Grid Was Down?

I think about this a lot. How would we survive without our power/tech if only for a day or two?

Let's say terrorists don't take it down but a natural disaster does. This is part of a long list of events at the very end.

The US electricity grid is a complex system crucial to life and commerce. It has more than 7,000 plants and has been vulnerable physically for decades. We are just beginning to understand a new threat to the grid's cybersecurity. Its computerized control could be abused by attackers who get into the systems. Cyberattacks can penetrate the electricity grid, shutting down power to people. It happened in Ukraine in 2015 and in 2016, and it could happen in the US.

The Oscars

Academy Awards Website

89th Academy Awards

Sunday February 26, 2017

In the energies of a New Moon Solar Eclipse celebrities came out to honor the best films and performances of 2016. Once again I enjoyed the fashions (lots of gold) and accessories, the entertainment, and pretty much everything else that went into Hollywood's number one night. Jimmy Kimmel did a great job as host this year. Then ... capping it all off like a surprise ending in a film ... the biggest blunder in Oscar history happened, reminding me of Steve Harvey when he initially announced the wrong winner in the 2015 Miss Universe contest. This is what happened ...

Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty were on hand to celebrate the 50th anniversary of "Bonnie and Clyde" -- presented the nominees for best picture. On stage, Beatty was given the task of opening the envelop that was supposed to contain the winner. (Later, Beatty would say it contained the name of a winner, but not the winner.) Beatty looked at the card and said, "And the Academy Award..." The crowd laughed, assuming he was building suspense. He looked down at the card again and then looked at Dunaway. "...for best picture..."

Dunaway playfully told Beatty, "You're impossible." She assumed he was joking around. "Come on," she prompted him. He showed her the card, and Dunaway read it aloud. "'La La Land,'" she said.

"La La Land" producer Jordan Horowitz was the first to speak. Producer Marc Platt followed. As Platt spoke, viewers at home saw someone run across the stage behind him.

From the crowd, "Moonlight" actor Mahershala Ali, a winner for best supporting actress, noticed the activity.

"When I did see security or people coming out on stage, and their moment was being disrupted in some way, I got really worried," he told press backstage.

Jenkins wasn't surprised by the initial result. "I think all the movies that were nominated were worthy so I took the result," he said backstage. "I applauded like everyone else."

On stage, "La La Land" producers were approached by a man wearing a headset and holding an envelope. Platt called producer Fred Berger to the mic next. As Berger began speaking, Beatty started heading to the mic, but Berger beat him to the announcement.

"We lost, by the way, but, you know," he said. Horowitz clarified: "I'm sorry, there's a mistake. 'Moonlight,' you guys won best picture." "This is not a joke," he said, gesturing to the "Moonlight" cast and producers and inviting them to stage. Platt added: "This is not a joke. They read the wrong thing." Horowitz showed the envelope to the crowd.

Jimmy Kimmel then hopped on stage and attempted to clear the air. "I think you all should just keep it anyway," he joked.

Off stage, the "Moonlight" crew celebrated. Director Barry Jenkins covered his mouth in shock. "It threw me more than a bit," Ali said. "I didn't want to go up there and take anything from somebody. It's very hard to feel joy in a moment like that."

As the "Moonlight" cast and creators headed to the stage, Kimmel said, "This is very unfortunate what happened." "Personally, I blame Steve Harvey for this," Kimmel said, referring to the TV host's infamous Miss Universe gaffe. "I'm going to be very proud to hand this to my friends from 'Moonlight,'" Horowitz interjected.

Beatty attempted to explain himself further. "I want to tell you what happened. I opened the envelope and it said, 'Emma Stone, La La Land.' That's why I took such a long look at Faye and the audience. I wasn't trying to be funny." Stone later told press she was confused because she had the card that said her name with her "the entire time."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the accountants from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) typically create two complete sets of winners' envelopes. So it is possible Stone had her envelope and another was handed to Beatty. "During the ceremony, two accountants stand on opposite sides of the stage throughout the ceremony, alternating between each other in the handing out of envelopes, depending on which side of the stage the presenters enter from," according to THR. Behind Beatty, the two casts traded spots. "This is 'Moonlight,' the best picture," Beatty said.

Matt Damon whistled from the crowd. Taraji P. Henson was shown with her mouth wide open in the crowd. "Very clearly, even in my dreams this could not be true," Jenkins said. "But to hell with dreams. I'm done with it because this is true." Jenkins also offered a thanks to the "La La Land" team. "I have to say, and it is true, it's not fake: We've been on the road with these guys for so long. And that was so gracious and so generous of them," he said. "My love to 'La La Land.'" "Moonlight" producer Adele Romanski summed up: "Thank you to the Academy. I don't know what to say. I'm still not sure this is real." Romanski said she hoped the movie's win was "inspiring to people, little black boys and brown girls, and other folks watching at home who feel marginalized." She hoped they took "some inspiration from seeing this beautiful group of artists... standing up here on this stage accepting this top honor."

The aftermath

Emma Stone was the first directly involved in the viral moment to address the press backstage. "I don't even know what to say. I think it's an incredible outcome, but very - a very strange happening for Oscar history." She also expressed her love for "Moonlight." "God, I love 'Moonlight' so much. I was so excited for 'Moonlight."

Jenkins, meanwhile, said he was given no official explanation for what happened. "I will say, I saw two cards," he said. "I wanted to see the card...and Beatty refused to show the card to anybody before he showed it to me. And so he did. He came up stairs and he walked over to me he showed the card....and I felt better about what happened." Jenkins thanked the "La La Land" team for being "so gracious" in the moment. "I can't imagine being in their position and having to do that," he said. "We spent a lot of time together in the last six months and I can't imagine being in their position and having to do that. It's wild. I wasn't speechless because we won. I was speechless because it was so gracious for them to do that."

PwC said in a statement: "We sincerely apologize to 'Moonlight,' 'La La Land,' Warren Beatty, Faye Dunaway, and Oscar viewers for the error that was made during the award announcement for Best Picture. The presenters had mistakenly been given the wrong category envelope and when discovered, was immediately corrected. We are currently investigating how this could have happened, and deeply regret that this occurred. We appreciate the grace with which the nominees, the Academy, ABC, and Jimmy Kimmel handled the situation."

Could this have anything to do with my feeling about Trump exposing the truth about aliens?

NASA says Donald Trump's request to send astronauts around the moon on the first test of its Orion capsule is within the realms of possibility' but warns 'data will drive any decision   Daily Mail - February 24, 2017
Just last week, NASA's top staff was given instructions to assess the feasibility of sending humans to space with the first flight of the Space Launch System rocket and Orion spacecraft. The mission was originally designed to be uncrewed, and was set to launch in 2018. In a press conference today, officials leading the study revealed the evaluations are now well underway, and they've already created a hard, crisp list of everything that will need to change from a hardware standpoint in order to add crew. But, so far, the team says they're sticking to their baseline plan for EM-1, and will let the data drive any decisions moving forward.

Walk-ins, Wanderers, and Inserts

Tom DeLong 2017 UFO Researcher of the Year

Keanu Reeves open to do Matrix 4   CBNews - February 23, 2017


It's been a busy week here as teachers are on Winter Break and coming for readings ... two more today.

The world is as divisive as ever with town hall meetings featuring not only those who normally stir the pot - (funny image and new definition for that expression) - but those paid to incite trouble. Will this ever end?

The North Dakota pipeline standoff takes me back to the days of cowboys and Indians ... and somehow the white man always got his way.

A happy moment this week ... Kellyanne Conway was censored for a week. Before you know it, she'll be gone. I know Trump feels obligated to keep her around because she allegedly got him elected - they're wrong. He's an insert.

Teeing off ... This is a good way to explain Trump's behavior and the fact that he's played golf six times since coming into office.

Northern California has faced severe weather this week and its aftermath. There are few, if any, safe havens untouched by climate change and accelerating natural disasters. Prepare.

In the hologram, if you live your life more cerebral than emotional, you are going to sabotage and push others away a good deal of the time ... And yet, if you're emotionally unstable and act-out, people disappear even faster. This algorithm is self-defeating.

I'm continuing my video blogs as ideas come to mind and time permits. Someone wanted me to do a video on mental illness. I told her to read through the files and Crystalinks because I'm done with self help - too much craziness in the world and self-destructive behavior. If you need focus, it will be as simple as hearing something somewhere and getting the message. Things are moving very quickly to the end.

  Star's seven Earth-sized worlds set record   BBC - February 22, 2017
Not one, but seven Earth-size planets have been discovered orbiting a tiny star about 40 light-years away (not terribly far in cosmic terms). Some of them might even be awash in water. Researchers say all seven could potentially support liquid water on the surface, depending on the other properties of those planets. But only three are within the conventional "habitable" zone where life is considered a possibility. The compact system of exoplanets orbits Trappist-1, a low-mass, cool star located 40 light-years away from Earth.

Trump has changed his immigration plan. Everything about Trump's administration will change and much is bull.

Last night on the TV series "Bull" ... the main character, and head shrink, Dr. Jason Bull, (Michael Weatherly), described his adversary as sociopath discussing the personality traits - actions disassociated from emotions. As he did I thought of Trump.

We move to ... not the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain but an elusive black bull who race through the streets of Queens, NY yesterday. He was captured but it was not a happy ending as he died en route to a sanctuary.


Yesterday, I met a new tenant in my building who moved to a studio apartment a few doors down. Let's call her Lisa - 30, caucasian, smart, pretty, slim, sweet, a social worker, and going through a divorce. She invited me to see her apartment which has basic furniture. I suggested that in time adding some plants, pictures etc. it will start to feel more like a home. Then, Lisa told me she was a minimalist with no intention of buying things for the apartment.

What did this really mean to Ellie the psychic/therapist? Lisa is not going to live there very long, and feels lost though she is the one who wanted the divorce. As we talked, I realized how deep her emotional problems were and suggested a therapist. She told me she had been in therapy for years and has never found herself. Not wanting to get caught up in her dramas, I excused myself and went home. I felt sad for her and others who suffer such a fate and never find themselves, constantly reinventing but most often remaining lost. I hope she finds what she is looking for ... but if she doesn't know what that is ... her life will remain minimal.

Back in my apartment, I decided to look at Minimalism to create this blog. I know many people who are totally happy and balanced in that lifestyle, mostly men. As for me, I hate any type of clutter and scale down as often as I can, but as I have a home-office it's not always easy - besides I love the feeling of my favorite things around me. I am far from a packrat and I love things in perfect order. I could enjoy Minimalism if I lived away from home for a brief period of time knowing I could come home to the things that balance my energies and speak to me about who I am. As they say, home is where the heart is. The rest is just stuff.

Short-term Memory Loss

As people age, short term memory - or loss of focus - decreases. This is more physical than emotionally as reality is emotionally-based and a state of mind (thought consciousness). Memory itself is a complicated phenomenon as we learn more about how the brain (computer) works.

Most people in my age group report these events about short-term memory. You walk into a room and forget why you went there. An idea comes to mind, you shift your thinking for just a second and that idea is gone - usually to return a minute or so later. Names of people are seemingly forgotten then recalled within a minute or two. The mechanical things are the easiest to forget because we don't really focus on them so if asked if you just did something, you have to rethink. Multitasking becomes harder so making lists is a good way to help remember. Short-term memory loss does not necessarily mean someone is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's disease but there could be a correlation. Other things that affect short-term memory loss are brain tumors, chronic fatigue syndrome, medications, substance abuse, diet, and other brain injuries and diseases. One has to assume that as the illusion of time increases, memory decreases.

It might be a good idea keep a record of the events if they happen to you and how you can avoid them. Coping mechanism really help people. For example, before you go into another room, keep your focus solely on why you are going there.

Sometimes I wonder if Trump, 70, sometimes suffers from short-term memory loss. You can see it in his facial expressions (trying to focus) and body language when he talks. Then there's the plane incident last week involving actor Harrison Ford, 74, who landed on the wrong runway without realizing it. I know many people in my age group who are not suffering from short-term memory loss yet, myself included, but who knows what tomorrow will bring.

The average span for letters was 7.3 and for numbers it was 9.3. The duration of short term memory seems to be between 15 and 30 seconds, according to Atkinson and Shiffrin (1971). Items can be kept in short term memory by repeating them verbally (acoustic encoding), a process known as rehearsal. Read more

Short-term memory (or "primary" or "active memory") is the capacity for holding, but not manipulating, a small amount of information in mind in an active, readily available state for a short period of time. The duration of short-term memory (when rehearsal or active maintenance is prevented) is believed to be in the order of seconds. Short-term memory should be distinguished from working memory, which refers to structures and processes used for temporarily storing and manipulating information. The idea of the division of memory into short-term and long-term dates back to the 19th century. A classical model of memory developed in the 1960s assumed that all memories pass from a short-term to a long-term store after a small period of time. This model is referred to as the "modal model" and has been most famously detailed by Shiffrin. The exact mechanisms by which this transfer takes place, whether all or only some memories are retained permanently, and indeed the existence of a genuine distinction between the two stores, remain controversial topics among experts.

Researchers identify human brain processes critical to short-term memory   Medical Express - February 20, 2017

This study is the first clear demonstration of precisely how human brain cells work to create and recall short-term memories. Confirmation of this process and the specific brain regions involved is a critical step in developing meaningful treatments for memory disorders that affect millions of Americans.Researchers found persistently active neurons in the medial frontal lobe as well as the medial temporal lobe. The neurons remained active even after the patient stopped looking at an image or object. Until now, the medial temporal lobe was thought to be involved only in the formation of new long-term memories. Now, however, the new findings show that both areas of the brain are critical for maintaining short-term memory and rely upon the ongoing activity of the neurons for memorization.

What is Short-Term Memory Loss?   Live Science - January 28, 2014

When a person experiences short-term memory loss, he or she can remember incidents from 20 years ago but is fuzzy on the details of things that happened 20 minutes prior. There are a number of causes of short-term memory loss, some which are a result of medical conditions and others that are related to injuries or other outside influences. A lack of oxygen to the brain can affect short-term memory. Alcohol and drug abuse, concussions and other trauma to the head can impact short-term memory. Medical conditions such as seizures, epilepsy, heart bypass surgery and depression can also impact short-term memory. One of the first signs of dementia is short-term memory loss.

Turning 74 on 2.17.17

Well here I am ... officially 74 as of 11:25pm last night ... as my grandson Noah would say. I spent the day doing the things I love then was surprised by friends who showed up ... Surprise!

I want to thank everyone who emailed with birthday wishes (thanks guys) and was honored by the many phone calls from family and friends. Today I party with family in NJ. More later ...

Being 74 with no health or other issues is amazing. I feel just as I always did.

Questions people ask:

Do I sleep well? 9 hours every night - white noise machine

Medication, drugs, drinking etc.? Never ... None

Diet: Protein and veggies. Prepare my own food. Struggle less with sugar these days but my guilty pleasure Peeps are on the shelves

Exercise: Stretches, active not hyperactive

Meditation, etc. Never

Stress: Keep things simple ... None for the most part

Love my work? Always ... It's coming full circle as you know

Work goals: Whatever comes along

Politics: Never went there but follow now. Addicted? I don't think so.

Economy: Not programmed for it

Favorite new apps: You put your finger on each app to see blood pressure, or sugar levels, or cholesterol - all low

Favorite 2016 film: "Hidden Figures"

Something a psychic told me on my 41st birthday in 1984: "You're a teacher now and always will be, but you're going to be famous and do something important that changes the way people think." That sounded strange at the time.

Trump's First Solo
Press Conference

Thursday February 16, 2017

I sat down for lunch around 1:00, and put on the TV just as Trump started his first solo press conference. As always it started as an airing of grievances harping on the same old, same old, Trump probably looking for a Hit as he has had so many Misses since coming into office - and yet I want him to succeed in the time remaining and for some strange reason felt compassion for him today.

He continued on by dismissing the flood of controversies that have been enveloping his administration. He blamed the press (Fake News), leaks, the opposition party, the courts, Congress, and the past administration, also denying allegations of anti-Semitism and racism. He cited campaign crowds and the electoral college as evidence of an adoring public, while claiming he is running a fine-tuned machine inside the White House West Wing and making historic progress.

His speech at times seemed surreal and strange - a bizarre display of presidential behavior if I must say so. Many people I know feel that he's having some sort of a mini-breakdown though he seemed composed later taking questions from the press. The elephant in the room was obviously Russia. Trump bristled at questions on this topic especially when reporters kept pressing him for a clear answer. His Russian Connections again seemed so obvious to those watching - yet he denied and lied. I think there are too many things going wrong and he can't wrap his head around how to control them. I see him caught in a web unable to get free. The more he tugs on it, the more he sinks.

Did I really sit there for one hour and 17 minutes? Yes.

Harold to Raymond Reddington on The Blacklist last night: "Do you want to know why those closest to you betray you? Why you're alone and hunted? It's because even when you try to do something good you cannot seem to understand where your selfishness ends and other people's lives begin." I think I know who stole Reddington's money ... Mr. Kaplan.

Ascension As We Understand It Today

Dynamic Tower - Like Spiraling Consciousness or DNA

The Dynamic Tower (also known as Dynamic Architecture Building or the Da Vinci Tower) is a proposed 420-metre (1,378 ft), 80-floor moving skyscraper, designed by architect David Fisher. Similar to the Suite Vollard completed in 2001 in Brazil. Each floor is designed to rotate independently, a maximum of 6 metres (20 ft) per minute, or one full rotation in 180 minute resulting in a changing shape of the tower.

Meeting of the Minds

Wednesday February 15, 2017

Z told me to turned on the TV - and there they were - Trump and Netanyahu - east meet west - a distraction from the Michael Flynn fiasco (just stuff in the grids). I remembered something someone told me long ago ... The story of our reality rose in the east but ends in the west (the setting sun before "Fade to Black").

As Netanyahu spoke my mind wandered from this timeline to the Hebrew bloodline (the blue helix) and the beginning of this biogenetic experiment. This is not about men but about the forces of creation. I saw Egypt and Sumer and the creation of an encoded bloodline that now comes full circle. Keys of Light. Symbols in unknown and yet familiar Frequencies. The Star of David. Merkaba. Rotating. Ascension. These energies will soon witness change as never before.

Straight off the Runway

Our daily political soap opera is really stepping up. Is it because it's February and rating sweeps month? Who knew what and when? Who's playing who? Why is Trump so cozy with Putin ... business, politics, blackmail? You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to know that everything is unraveling and will cost Trump his presidency. Did I hear a round of applause? You have to admit that most of Trump's advisors look like criminals - and probably are. Are you keeping up with the scorecard of events? How many Trump family members will be attacked in the news this week? The fashion world doesn't like Ivanka, Melania, and here at fashion week in New York City ... Tiffany Trump didn't get the warmest welcome.

Political Synopsis:

Members of President Trump's 2016 campaign had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials before the election, four current and former American officials told The NY Times. The findings came from calls intercepted by American law enforcement and intelligence agencies during investigations last year into whether Russia was trying to hack the Democratic National Committee in an effort to disrupt the election. The U.S. officials said there was no evidence that Trump's associates had colluded with the Russians to influence voting. The White House declined to comment on Tuesday night. The intercepted calls are separate from the case of Michael Flynn, who quit this week after it was revealed that he had misled administration officials about whether he had discussed sanctions with a Russian diplomat. Trump knew about concerns that Mike Flynn had lied for more than two weeks before demanding that he quit, Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said on Tuesday. The administration's first month has rattled the political establishment and led to calls for congressional inquiries.

Valentine's Day
at the White House

It's not a Happy Valentine's Day over at the White House. It didn't take long for the first head to roll in the Trump Administration. Most will leave one way or another. Mike Flynn quit the post he held for less than a month after it was revealed that he had misled Vice President Pence about a conversation with a Russian diplomat weeks before Trump's inauguration. The F.B.I. examined Flynn's phone calls after he came under scrutiny. The Justice Department told the White House last month that Flynn had not fully explained himself, adding that it feared that he could be vulnerable to blackmail by Moscow.

NAFTA moments as Justin Trudeau visits Trump today. Do you ever thank about what world leaders say about Trump?

Listened to Bernie Sanders on "Meet the Press". He still understands things better than most. Can we (did we) reboot the election?

The Grammys

59th Grammy Awards

Grammy Awards

As award season continues, the 2017 Grammy Awards are here and
always have something for everyone. Great show to watch and record.

Music is an emotional expression/catharsis of what we are feeling at a given point in our lives. It allows us to look at who we are and how we can take the lyrics and an instrument of choice to create something special often to hep others. From the youngest age, we all relate to music in one form or another. The history of our reality is though to begin with a "soul note" that guides everything and returns us at the end.

When Your Elderly Landlord/Landlady Leaves

Another blog based on client themes

Many super seniors own their homes - mortgages paid off long ago. Some rent out an apartment or room in their homes to cover the overhead - with tenants remaining for decades - paying very little rent. These could include family members, friends, or someone who stayed on without a rent increase, as if the apartment was rent stabilized.

As super seniors move into their 90s, they will soon pass, or move to assisted living. Someone in the family will inherit the home and sell it. Where does this leave the tenant? If they are lucky, they inherit the house and stay on renting one apartment and living in the other. This usually applies to family members.

In most cases, tenants have hopefully saved for the day they have to move. Working tenants will look for affordable housing if they can find it. Others have become seniors and have nowhere to go at the old rent. They move in with family or look for a share which is not easy when you're used to your privacy. Some may become homeless - a very dangerous situation.

You have been taught that when one situation goes away another will replace it - whether it's a home, a job, a relationship, or something else. Some have faith that God with bring it, but that is a myth. Some believe you attract what you need - synchronicity - Law of Manifestation. It just seems that way at times but also not true. If you understand that we lived in a programmed hologram, you know it's all about your programmed experiences which bring the next. As with all things in duality - that can be a positive or a negative ... or maybe bit of both.

Auguste Mariette

Auguste Mariette was the foremost Egyptologist of his
generation - founder of the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
He visited temples and befriended a Bedouin tribe,
who led him to Saqqara - the Saqqara Pyramids

From my first collection of Egyptian antiquities,

I recognized that

the world shall hence forth

learn about Egypt's Pharaonic heritage

and where it leads

in the end.
