MOSS LANDING – It’s one thing to see humpback whales feeding and frolicking just offshore. It’s quite another when they’re so close you can smell their breath.

That’s what’s happening in Moss Landing this week, as a pod of about 15 of the once-endangered creatures have settled in for an anchovy feast within a quarter-mile of shore. One of the majestic whales was even photographed venturing into the mouth of the Moss Landing Harbor.

“We were with a whale that’s feeding within about 20 feet of water, it’s just amazing,” said marine biologist Dorris Welch, co-owner of Moss Landing-based Sanctuary Cruises. “The density and swarm of anchovies has increased so close to shore, bringing the whales in really close. And with the feed so shallow the whales have to take a mouthful at the surface.”

The show is drawing clusters of whale-watching boats to Moss Landing, thrilling spectators seaward and landward alike. One was Roseville resident Kyle Baldwin, who is visiting the Central Coast with family and came to Moss Landing State Beach on Thursday after relatives got an eyeful the day before.

“They were here for a few hours, two or three hours, just watching them,” Baldwin said. “They were close enough to see breaching and see their fins. There were just tons of them. It wasn’t just one or two. It was pretty spectacular.”

The show is a repeat of what happened in Santa Cruz in 2012 and Capitola last year, when large numbers of whales in search of food came very close to shore. All three events drew kayakers and paddleboarders, though the Marine Mammal Protection Act requires anyone viewing whales to keep their distance.

Still on the rebound from past whaling, humpbacks feed using their baleen to filter small fish and krill from the water. That also leads to some rather poor whale breath, and onlookers near Moss Landing reported the whales were close enough to get a whiff.

Thursday, the fog obscured some of the show, beginning to disperse before thickening again and drawing a curtain between the shore and the whales. But in past year, the feeding events have persisted for several weeks.

The show even drew gawkers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, which overlooks the ocean in Moss Landing. And patrons at Phil’s Fish Market also something not usually on the menu, both in person and via the Moss Landing institution’s webcam.

“We’ve had quite a show for the last two days,” said restaurant owner Phil DiGirolamo. “Not only are the whales there, but the bird action is incredible because they’re bringing the feed up to the surface.”

DiGirolamo said the show is a once-every-five-years phenomenon, maybe. Patrons were loving the show, crowding a rear patio that abuts the beach.

DiGirolamo said he was also getting emails from around the globe from people who saw the show online.

Albino Cyclops Shark Found


Note: It doesn’t matter if the waters in the Sea of Cortez are (allegedly) some of the cleanest, the mother shark may have eaten tuna (for example) that migrated from, or through highly radioactive waters contaminated by radiation from Fukushima. It’s called bio-accumulation, the radiation travels UP the food chain.

Guess who’s positioned at the top of the food chain? The smart thing for all of us, is to make heavy metal cleanses and taking zeolite a regular part of our health regime, in addition “eat like you already have cancer”. Follow “healing diet”, one recommended for cancer patients. Know what foods to avoid and what boosts your immune system as a preventative measure against the toxins and radiation in our food and environment that are adversely affecting our bodies at the cellular level. And think positive, with aloha! Much love, Annette

cyclops sharkThis is NOT a product of Photoshop or any digital manipulation. This is an ultra rare albino cyclops dusky shark fetus. Not sure why the guy in the photo is trying to make it talk…?

A commercial fishing crew caught a dusky shark in mid-2011 off the coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico. When they cut the shark open, they discovered their catch had not only been pregnant, but had a fetus that was rather unique: The shark fetus was albino and only had one large eye centered in its face. Once the picture was shared on blog of Pisces Fleet Sportfishing, it quickly went viral around the internet, and many initially suspected the photo wasn’t real. However, scientists have confirmed that this cyclopean specimen is legitimate and the optical tissue was functional, though the animal likely wouldn’t have survived in the wild.

one-eyed-cyclops-shark-pup-face_41771_600x450While the shark is somewhat reminiscent of Blinky, the three-eyed fish from The Simpsons, it is the result of the prosencephalon (forebrain) failing to separate into two hemispheres during embryonic development. As the brain failed to separate, only one optic lobe formed, leading to only one eye. This condition often results in miscarriage, and those that survive  to birth typically die within a day. As the shark would have needed to defend itself from the moment it was born, it would not have lasted very long.

“This is extremely rare, as far as I know less than 50 examples of an abnormality like this have been recorded,” Felipe Galván-Magaña of the Mexican Institute of Sciences stated on the blog of Pisces Fleet. While inhibited genetic expression of the proteins needed to form the brain can cause cyclocephaly, there are also environmental factors that can inhibit protein production. However, Galvan does not believe the latter is the case for this shark. “The water in the Sea of Cortez is one of the cleanest in the world, so it is not likely that this is a factor.”

While the shark embryo has been made available to scientists who wish to study it, Pisces Fleet is keeping the preserved embryo.

3/26/2014 Yellowstone Magma Chamber Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know?


Note: It’s been a few months since I closely followed earthquake monitoring, since then global seismic activity has continued to rise in tandem with the rising consciousness tsunami. As people around the world wake up, the “system” fights back. In the process the planet responds to cleanse, purge and clear out the chaos manifesting within the consciousness of billions of people as they move through the shift into a new paradigm. These changes are natural and nothing to fear, the consciousness of Mother Earth is moving humanity through planetary change as smoothly as possible.

Staying positive, grounded with the Earth and in alignment with your inner core BE-ing will guide you through any upheaval your region may experience. Much love to all!

friend Tom Lupshu just released the 1st video below in which he warns us that nearly one quarter of the northern elk herd at Yellowstone National Park are missing according to the annual winter count. We learn that biologists aren’t sure if there has been a stunning decline in the herd to account for these missing numbers or if there are other factors at play. Tom also shares with us that helium releases are now at 1000 times above normal while a complete media blackout also exists.

Animals Leaving Yellowstone? What Do They Know We Don’t Know? by TAT’S 2 MIN NEWS

 

———————————————————————–

While it has been said that animals often give us warnings far ahead of earth changing events, Yellowstone recently witnessed herds of bison running for their lives on the public roadways (as shown in the 2nd video below) that WERE NOT being chased or rounded up. Are these animals now detecting something potentially vast and deadly? The Yellowstone Supervolcano is the only thing there that would fit the bill. Tom warns that we should watch these animals and watch them very closely as they will always give us a heads up before an event. Are all of these events signs that the Yellowstone caldera is about to blow?

3/26/2014 — Volcanic Earthquakes — Yellowstone and California — Animals giving warning?

 

 

Over the past 48 hours, a noticeable increase in seismic activity has occurred across the Western United States.

 

Specifically, a swarm of earthquakes has occurred extending from the Western edge of the Yellowstone magma chamber, now Eastward into the center of the National Park itself.

 

This building pressure is now manifesting as multiple 3.0M+ earthquakes, all at a 3.0mile or greater depth inside the Yellowstone magma chamber.

 

As if Yellowstone were not enough, the pressure is also translating to earthquakes occurring farther Southwest from Yellowstone, along the deformed edge of the North American Craton, extending into Central California , along the subduction zone of the North American Plate (and the Pacific Plate).

The above screenshots show the past 2 United States earthquakes greater than 3.0M. One inside the Yellowstone supervolcano, the other at an “unnamed” volcano in California.

 


 

Video update on the current Yellowstone movement from tatoott1009 here:

 

 

 


 

The heavy earthquake activity along the West Coast of the United States , over the past few weeks, has now translated in the craton displacement that we were expecting.

 

The earthquakes inside the magma chamber at Yellowstone, and the earthquakes now occurring at dormant volcanic chains along South / Central California, mean we can expect further activity in the near term to INCREASE.

 

The increase in activity along the edge of the craton will continue into the near term future due to the overall Pacific displacement occurring internationally.

 

Until things cool off internationally in the West Pacific, we can expect sizable displacement to occur along our plate in North America.  This means, Yellowstone, Colorado, Oklahoma, and other areas along the edge of the edge of the craton need to be aware of the possibility of movement in the near term.

 

Also.. the odd man out, Southern California , near Baja, sits primed, and now showing slight volcanic chamber activity.  Expect Salton Sea and Mono Lake to be showing some movement soon.

 

Earlier this past week.. we made note of the multiple UNREPORTED earthquakes at Yellowstone..

Move forward a few days, and the USGS is now on top of things apparently.  Either that, or the movement is now becoming undeniable.

 

In other news from the region, last week, reports of odd Bison (buffalo) movements exiting the park..

 

Were the animals trying to tell us something?

Yellowstone Magma Chamber Earthquake Swarm — USGS Censoring Activity 3/25/2014

Over the past week, several reports have been coming in from viewers, telling me to check the charts in Yellowstone. People saying the charts are showing UNREPORTED activity on multiple stations across the famous Supervolcano (national park).

Indeed, activity was occurring this past week, but NOT being counted on the USGS public feeds as earthquakes.

Earthquakes at Yellowstone not being reported? What is this madness?

After checking the actual charts, indeed it is confirmed, there has been earthquake movement GREATER than 2.5M across the area, the charts do not lie……

Here are a couple examples of the activity NOT showing on public feeds as “earthquakes”.. yet clearly some actual movement is occurring : (censored?)

Move forward a few days, now currently March 25, 2014 — after the flurry of UNREPORTED activity — and now the USGS is showing THREE 3.0M+ events over the past 24 hours.

Coming from the Western edge of the Yellowstone Magma Chamber (click to view full size) :

yellowstone swarm march 25 2014

 

The magma chamber for the supervolcano has been found to extend further West than originally thought. Confirmed now via subterranean “soundings” taken via ground penetrating RADAR, the chamber extends as far West as the Oregon State Line.


Compare the “reported” 3.0M+ events shown on the charts below, to the charts over the past few days, shown above.

The charts above show similar sized activity. However no earthquakes were reported at Yellowstone corresponding to the charts above.

This means censorship is occurring at some point. The earthquakes on the charts earlier this week, were not reported as earthquakes to the public.

Move forward 2-3 days… March 24, 2014 .. THREE earthquakes, greater than 3.0M, now showing on the Yellowstone charts, and also being publicly admitted on the USGS feeds.

Venomous spider outbreak shuts British school


A nice little fright for the children, right before Halloween! Ick…

October 23, 2013BRITAINAn English school has been forced to close after an outbreak of “false widow” spiders, the latest in a series of sightings of Britain’s most poisonous arachnid. Dean Academy in the western Forest of Dean region would shut its doors on Wednesday while experts dealt with the eight-legged invaders, vice principal Craig Burns said in a statement. The spiders, which resemble the potentially deadly black widow, have colonized parts of southern England for more than a century although they are thought to have spread in the last 25 years, according to Britain’s Natural History Museum. Their bite can cause swelling or fever. So far, no one at the school has been bitten, said Burns. There have been numerous newspaper reports of false widow sightings and attacks around Britain in recent weeks. –Reuters
 

Thanks, guys! Whale celebrates the freedom of its friend cut free from lobster nets with incredible leap by hero fishermen’s boat

  • The stunning images were captured by whale-watcher guide off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada

 

By Anna Edwards

 

This whale was literally jumping for joy after a rescue crew saved her friend from drowning.

These extraordinary photos show a humpback whale ‘celebrating’ after another female was cut free from stray ropes attached to old lobster pots.

The stunning images were captured by Christine Callaghan, 62, off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.

She said: ‘I’ve seen many breaches, and they are always awesome. But this one was different and special in a way that made my throat tighten.’

Christine, a whale-watch guide with Pirate’s Cove Whale & Seabird Cruises, had been leading a trip when they received reports of an entangled whale and decided to take a detour.

The discovered a female humpback known as Foggy who had become ensnared in ropes from old lobster pots in the Bay of Fundy, two miles offshore of Long Island.

Foggy, described by Christine as a ‘Fundy favourite’, was born in 1987 to a whale named Bermuda.

Humpbacks return to the feeding grounds their mothers brought them to when they were calves, meaning Foggy returns to the bay year after year.

The whale had rope wrapped around her head and across her blowholes and peduncle – the narrow part of her tail, just ahead of the flukes.

Foggy was dragging a mass of old lobster traps beneath her, causing her to list to one side with the weight of all the gear.

 

 

However, remaining faithfully by her side throughout the ordeal was a fellow humpback known as Grommet.

Another boat, the Shearwater, from the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, happened to be in the Bay and came to offer assistance.

The Shearwater crew were able to do an initial survey and radio through details to the Fast Response Craft that was speeding to the scene.

The Campobello Whale Rescue Team then used specialist equipment to cut the rope snagging Foggy’s tail, and then the ones around her head.

The crew decided to leave a single strand in her mouth, fearing they would cause excessive bleeding if they dragged it out, and figuring that she would likely be able to rid herself of it.

The instant Foggy was freed, Grommet dove and then burst from the water in a spectacular celebratory breach.

Christine said: ‘The timing, immediately after the ropes were cut completely freeing Foggy, and the fact that it was Foggy’s ‘friend’ that breached, was so touching to me.

As Foggy was cut free from stray ropes by whale rescuers, Grommet breached next to the rescuer's boat in an amazing display of thanks

Freedom! Foggy was freed and Grommet, who had remained faithfully by her side, was thrilled

‘Knowing how intelligent these animals are, and having observed Grommet’s steadfast, seemingly protective companionship of Foggy those several hours while we waited with them for the rescue boat, I personally interpreted that breach as an act of joy and celebration that her pal was out of danger.

‘Everyone on the boat felt a huge sense that we had just witnessed something wonderful.’

All present were left with a smile on their face as the two whales swam away side by side up the Bay, the northernmost reach of the whale feeding ground known as the Gulf of Maine.

The mouth of the Bay is one of the best places in the world to see several different species of whales, including finbacks, minkes, the very rare North Atlantic right whale and humpbacks.

When the Tiger Bows to a Child, Phenomenal Signal the “New Earth” IS Rising


Extraordinary show of sentience from this magnificent Tiger, and tears of joy reading  how this child connected with one of natures fiercest predators. Reminds me a famous biblical quote “And the lion will lay down with the lamb…”. Simply remarkable! Read story below…

 

‘I noticed that Taj had taken an interest in the girl and was heading towards her.

‘I thought for certain that the little girl would need therapy after the encounter and fear cats for the rest of her life.

‘I could not believe my eyes when Taj approached the girl, bowed his head and then placed his huge right paw exactly in front of where the little girl’s left hand was.

‘It was incredible to watch. Taj let down his right paw, rubbed his cheek against the glass where the little girl’s face was and moved off.’

Far from being scared, the little girl was so excited that she started clapping as she walked back afterwards towards her mother.

‘I have never seen such tenderness from such a large predator,’ Mr Daniels said.

The images were captured by Linda Kerley of the Zoological Society of London, who was looking to photograph Siberian tigers in Russia. She noticed deer tracks that came to an abrupt end, but it wasn’t until she looked her photographs that she saw what really happened to the animal.

A camera set up by scientist Linda Kerley captures a golden eagle attacking a sika deer in Russia.

 

 

It was a wildlife death match — cruel and up close.

Scientists unintentionally photographed a golden eagle striking a young sika deer, capturing the brutality of life in the wild.

“The size difference is astounding — that an eagle can look at a deer and think I can kill that,” Jonathan Slaght of the Wildlife Conservation Society told the Daily News.

Linda Kerley of the Zoological Society of London set up a camera trap to shoot the endangered Siberian tigers of far east Russian. But the deer’s carcass puzzled her two weeks later when she returned to the site to switch memory cards and change batteries, Slaght explained.

“There were no large carnivore tracks in the snow, and it looked like the deer had been running and then just stopped and died,” Kerley said. “It was only after we got back to camp that I checked the images from the camera and pieced everything together. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.”

‘There were no large carnivore tracks in the snow, and it looked like the deer had been running and then just stopped and died,’ Kerley said. It was only when she saw the camera’s film that she saw what had happened.

‘There were no large carnivore tracks in the snow, and it looked like the deer had been running and then just stopped and died,’ Kerley said. It was only when she saw the camera’s film that she saw what had happened.

Images of the attack appear alongside an article in the September issue of the Journal of Raptor Research.

Cheryl Dykstra, editor in chief of the peer-reviewed journal, told The News that this is the first time a golden eagle has been documented in great detail killing a deer.

“The documentation is so spectacular that it showed exactly how it occurred,” Dykstra said.

Kerley wrote the piece with Slaght, who studies birds of prey.

Jonathan Slaght of the Wildlife Conservation Society said that golden eagles around the world typically prey on rabbits, but have been known to take down foxes, coyote — even a young brown bear cub.

Jonathan Slaght of the Wildlife Conservation Society said that golden eagles around the world typically prey on rabbits, but have been known to take down foxes, coyote — even a young brown bear cub.

Slaght noted that golden eagles are known for astonishing strikes around the world. He said they typically prey on rabbits, but have taken down foxes, coyote and even a young brown bear cub.

But photographic evidence of the kill was shocking even for a raptor expert.

“It took me a long time just staring at it to process that it was an eagle attacking a deer. It was just so unexpected,” Slaght said.

Researchers at the ZSL and WCS have monitored Siberian tigers with camera traps for six years in the Lazovsky Nature Preserve. Both groups have been part of the Siberian tiger conservation effort for roughly two decades, according to the WCS.

Their article says there is no evidence to suggest that golden eagles pose a serious threat to deer populations.

“I’ve been assessing deer causes of death in Russia for 18 years,” Kerley said, “this is the first time I’ve seen anything like this.”

A bus driver in the US state of Pennsylvania had a rather unexpected passenger drop in on him as a deer crashed through the windshield of his vehicle. The bus was making it usual journey in the Johnstown area when Tuesday’s accident happened. Footage captured by a security camera on board the bus shows the deer trashing around in the front of the vehicle in a desperate attempt to escape. Transport authorities who released the footage say the shocked driver eventually managed to opened the door and that the deer got off.

There is a suspicion that cats and dogs are only putting an act on for the humans, proof of this has been a long time coming, However this remarkable video catches a cat barking like a dog, until he realizes he is being watched by a human. I expect that we will soon see cats walking on two legs, operating a can opener, and dogs reading the paper. They are just playing with us people!

 

This grieving dolphin carrying her dead calf has us stunned….Please send her prayers, love and light


This is heartbreaking, dolphins are such loving and sensitive beings. Cetaceans are highly telepathic, please join me in sending the mother love, light, joy and let her know the transitioning of her baby was not in vain, she touched the hearts of countless souls. At least she’s not alone, the empathy, compassion and protection from her pod members is incredible…

IMO the boat should back-off and leave her to grieve alone.

MSN Now
Thu, 28 Mar 2013


Whale watchers on Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari out of Dana Point in California had one of the most heart-breaking dolphin encounters in recent memory. As a pod of dolphins swam by the boat, Captain Dave Anderson spotted an adult dolphin carrying a deceased calf on her back.

“I believe this calf has been dead for many days, possibly weeks,” he notes. “In my nearly twenty years on the water whale-watching I have never seen this behavior. Nor have I ever seen anything quite as moving as this mother who refuses to let go of her poor calf.” Oof. Hits us right in the feel-spots.

New pope No white smoke – but a seagull! Bird steals papal conclave show in absence of new Pope

Smoke watching became bird watching in St. Peter’s Square after a gull spent several minutes perched atop the chimney that belches out smoke from the Sistine Chapel

Reuters

In the absence of a pope, a seagull stole the show at the papal conclave.

Smoke watching became bird watching in St. Peter’s Square after a gull spent several minutes perched atop the chimney that belches out smoke from the Sistine Chapel to signal whether or not a pope has been elected.

From the chapel’s tiled roof, the gull had a commanding bird’s eye view of the sea of pilgrims eagerly waiting in the rain for papal tidings.

The bird offered welcome comic relief. Dublin tourist Harry Sheeran said it was “nearer to heaven than we are.”

Minutes after being spotted, the bird inspired a multitude of Twitter postings.

One quick Twitter user even created a spoof account @SistineSeagull, providing ‘live commentary’ on the papal conclave from the roof of the Sistine Chapel.

The Spirit of Gaia made some very intriguing appearances at the Vatican since the Pope’s resignation.

First sign: seagull attacks the papal dove.

Second: Lightning strikes the Basilica twice the day Benedict resigned.

Third: Seagulls on the chimney waiting for smoke.

Only time will tell what it all means…

Couldn’t resist posting a couple of the Tweeted photo’s..

 

In middle of night, dog wakes wife to save stricken husband


Posted: 03/08/2013

WICHITA FALLS, Texas – Bruce Martin was watching movies in the middle of the night when he suffered a massive heart attack. His dog Clyde nudged him and, getting no response, trotted into the bedroom to awaken Bruce’s wife,Mitch.

The Martins believe that Clyde, a 5-year-old pit bull/golden retriever mix, saved Bruce’s life.

“Clyde’s my insomnia buddy. He’d stay up with me while I was watching movies at 3 in the morning,” said Martin, still recovering from the Feb. 11 collapse and subsequent bypass surgery. “That particular night I got up to cross the room and had the heart attack. I was unconscious, and when he couldn’t get me to respond, he went to get Mitch.”

“It took him two tries, but he led me to the living room,” Mitch said. “That’s where I found Bruce slumped over the back of the couch.”

Lion ‘escaped from cage’ to kill California woman


7 March 2013

Couscous was raised at the private park from the age of eight weeks old

A California coroner says a lion that killed a volunteer at a big cat park used its paw to lift a partially closed door and escape from a feeding cage.

Fresno County Coroner David Hadden said investigators believe the lion then attacked and killed Dianna Hanson as she cleaned a larger enclosure.

The lion broke the 24-year-old intern’s neck and she died almost instantly.

Police shot and killed the animal to reach her, believing Ms Hanson was severely injured but alive.

“The lion had been fed, the young woman was cleaning the large enclosure, and the lion was in the small cage,” Mr Hadden explained, adding the cage door was partially open, allowing the lion to lift it up with his paw.

“He ran at the young lady.”

The coroner added that bite and claw marks found on her body happened after she died, after the lion broke her neck with a paw swipe.

The facility, known as Project Survival’s Cat Haven, is normally closed on Wednesdays when the attack happened, and only one other worker was present during the mauling.

The founder of Cat Haven, Dale Anderson, said that he and two other workers had left to take a cheetah to exhibit at a local school.

Ms Hanson was identified by her father, who said working at the wildlife park had been her “dream job”, according to the Associated Press.

She had been working for two months as an intern at the 100-acre (40 ha) park, about 45 miles (75km) east of Fresno.

Her father said his daughter had experience at wildlife parks and was “at ease” with big cats, but added that she told him she would not be allowed inside the lion’s cage.

The lion was a four-year-old male named Couscous, a California Fish and Wildlife spokesman said.

Couscous had been raised at Cat Haven since he was eight weeks old, said Tanya Osegueda, a spokeswoman for Project Survival.

The project opened in 1993, and has housed numerous big cats, including Bengal tigers, Siberian lynx, jaguars and leopards.

Susan Rennisons Comment: This is the headline provided by a BBC link which seems to be quite provocative but in line with other stories such as cows learning how to by-pass gate locks and escape…. Biologist Rupert Sheldrake hypothesises that morphogenetic fields belonging to each individual species exists and is used to retain and pass around information sharing, habits and knowledge, rather like a species specific info-sharing internet (a fully accesible Facebook & Twitter for each creature held in the environment). For actual experimental ‘evidence’ see last weeks rat mental chat (Rat-Twitter) headlines. There have been many reports of ‘teaching’ e.g. dolphins released into the wild teaching others how to tail-walk but it is also believed that certain knowledge can be picked up by those in distant locations and this is the basis of the 100th Monkey principle that scientists have tried to debunk. Whatever, it is becoming very noticeable that certain animals, birds and fish are acting more intelligently and surprising humans. Therefore, the evidence suggests to me that in a time of rapid evolutionary change, those morphogenetic fields are being quickly updated by the environment too and more knowledge sharing is also passing between different species…

Note: I wonder if he was trying to play with her, if he lived around people all his life and assuming he hasn’t been subjected to abusive treatment it’s hard to believe this was an act of aggression. When cats swat it’s usually a form of play, if they’re going in for the kill they pounce on their prey with both front paws and immediately bite down to immobilize the victim.

Thousands of migrating sharks close Florida beaches


Swimmers at Florida’s Palm Beach have been told to stay out of the water this week as thousands of sharks have been spotted in shallow waters close to the shoreline.

6:47PM GMT 07

The huge shoal of sharks which has shut down beaches in Florida, is migrating up the east coast of the US to North Carolina.

Tens of thousands of the predators, mostly blacktip and spinner sharks, are moving north for their annual migration.

Researchers at Florida Atlantic University said they had counted about 15,000 sharks.

Experts said the sharks usually migrate earlier in the year during the winter. This year the migration is about a month later than expected.

Local television news stations filmed thousands of sharks in the clear waters off the Florida coast.

Elizabeth Horowitz, who lives across from the beach at Palm Beach, was hoping to catch another glimpse of the sharks on Wednesday.

“People really need to heed these warnings, ” she said. “Thank God it’s a public beach and they have lifeguards.”

Local lifeguards were worried about keeping beach-goers out of the water as the peak of spring holidays approach.

While they’re experienced at shark sightings, Lifeguard Supervisor Craig Pollock said this year the sharks were coming closer to the shore.

“A lot of times when we have a sandbar, the sharks stay off the shore a little further about 50 to 100 yards,” he said.

Note: Nature is trying to tell us something, we’re seeing a lot of movement in the oceans either their moving away from something, beaching themselves or turning up dead in mass kills. My guess is volcanic and seismic activity that’s releasing methane and hydrogen sulfide from the bottom of the ocean and possibly sonar testing from military or oil producers are wreaking havoc under the surface in certain regions so we’re seeing mass migrations as ocean dwellers seek safer waters that are getting more difficult to find as the earth changes begin accelerate…

Iran battles plague of ‘genetically mutated’ giant rats


Note: This should be a wake-up call for people believing that nuclear technology is acceptable at any level, because this is only the beginning of the mutations in nature and for human beings.

SINA News, 1st March 2013
Tehran, the capital of Iran, is battling an invasion of “genetically mutated” giant rats. Iran has sent in sniper teams to clear Tehran’s streets from the massive rodents weighting up to five kilos plaguing 26 district of the Iranian capital, the city’s environmental agency said.

“They seem to have had a genetic mutation, probably as a result of radiations and the chemical used on them,” Ismail Kahram, Teheran city council environment adviser and university professor Ismail Kahram told Qudsonline.ir.

“They are now bigger and look different. These are changes that normally take millions of years of evolution. They have jumped from 60 grams to five kilos, and cats are now smaller than them.”

The “mutated rats” have been running rampant in the capital, as cats are scared off by their giant size and traditional poison appear to have no effect on them.

Comment:
This is another example of rapid evolutionary change. Darwinists are facing a tremendous amount of opposition as the evidence mounts that they have badly got this wrong, this is an interesting quote:

Richard C. Strohman, professor emeritus of molecular and cell biology at Berkeley, and an evolutionist, wrote in the March 1997 edition of Nature Biotechnology: “There is a striking lack of correspondence between genetic and evolutionary change. Neo-Darwinian theory predicts a steady, slow continuous, accumulation of mutations (microevolution) that produces a progressive change in morphology leading to new species, genera, and so on (macroevolution). But macroevolution now appears to be full of discontinuities (punctuated evolution), so we have a mismatch of some importance. That is, the fossil record shows mostly stasis, or lack of change, in a species for many millions of years; there is no evidence there for gradual change even though, in theory, there must be a gradual accumulation of mutations at the micro level.” “We currently have no adequate explanation for stasis or for punctuated equilibrium in evolution, or for higher order regulation in cells.” “We seem to lack any scientific basis with which to explain, for example, evolution.” “Not necessarily so. It does suggest, however, that our evolutionary theory is incomplete.” “The theory is in trouble because it insists on locating the driving force solely in random mutations.” “It is becoming clear that sequence information in DNA, by itself, contains insufficient information for determining how gene products (proteins) interact to produce a mechanism of any kind.
“Understanding of complex function may in fact be impossible without recourse to influences outside of the genome.” –Richard C. Strohman. March 1997. The coming Kuhnian revolution in biology. Nature Biotechnology, Vol. 15, pp. 194-200
Source: Debunking Evolution: problems between the theory and reality; the false science of evolution

This whole paper is interesting. Energy driven evolutionary change requires an overall intelligence (Universal Consciousness) supplying new templates or morphogenetic fields and monitoring progress. It seems that many evolutionary biologists can now no longer ignore the facts despite their mandate to mislead the general public.

 

X-File Fly’s


Alright, this is a little strange so I’m reporting this to see if anyone else has seen anything similar. Over the last couple weeks I’ve noticed these “cute” little black flies, nearly perfect in design with well-tailored little black wings that are at least half the size of a normal house fly. I’ve been here three years and have never seen them on the island, nor have I ever seen them on the mainland. They have been relatively small in numbers, compared to the usual fruit fly buzzing around the kitchen looking for a meal.

This afternoon while talking with my mother on the phone I looked in the corner behind my dining room table to see about 12-15 of these little black fly’s sitting on the wall, none of them were moving or flying around. At the time, even tho I was preoccupied with the conversation  it hit me as strange to see all of them hanging out together in the corner. But after a moment, I went on with my conversation and forgot about it…

Well this evening, almost 10 hours later around mid-nite I noticed the group of fly’s were still in the corner,  sitting motionless on the wall. I don’t like killing anything, even bugs but at this point something just didn’t feel normal about these bugs. So I picked up a magazine and began swatting the flies in the corner, normally when you do that the remaining fly’s will scatter about. Not these fly’s, all but two or three just sat there as I  swatted away killing their comrades, taking out four and five fly’s at a time till they were gone.

There were a few more around, sitting on the walls that met the same fate. Then one flew on the refrigerator and landed a couple of feet in front of me, it didn’t move as I got closer and closer to take a whack, taking the hit almost as if it committed suicide.

Sometimes living life down the rabbit hole can make your mind go into some pretty strange places when things like this happen. After reading biotechnology reports about man-made mosquito’s, it kind of makes me wonder if they haven’t created little black flies to spy on people or spread disease. Or, maybe their the result of a radioactive mutation and are a new specie of fly. Possibly they came here in fruit from another country….

Fortunately I don’t think I’m a big enough “fry” to warrant an attack from special ops forces in the CIA, as we know the controllers seem to feel threatened by anyone speaking out on certain “sacred” subjects so one never knows for sure anymore.

Anyone else seen these little critters?
