LATEST CANCER INFORMATION

AFTER YEARS OF TELLING PEOPLE CHEMOTHERAPY IS THE ONLY WAY TO TRY AND ELIMINATE CANCER, JOHNS HOPKINS IS FINALLY STARTING TO TELL YOU THERE IS AN ALTERNATIVE WAY …

[Cancer Update from Johns Hopkins ]

1. Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

2. Cancer cells occur between 6 to more than 10 times in a person’s lifetime.

3. When the person’s immune system is strong the cancer cells will be destroyed and prevented from multiplying and forming tumors.

4. When a person has cancer it indicates the person has multiple nutritional deficiencies. These could be due to genetic, environmental, food and lifestyle factors.

5. To overcome the multiple nutritional deficiencies, changing diet and including supplements will strengthen the immune system.

6. Chemotherapy involves poisoning the rapidly-growing cancer cells and also destroys rapidly-growing healthy cells in the bone marrow, gastro-intestinal tract etc, and can cause organ damage, like liver, kidneys, heart, lungs etc.

7. Radiation while destroying cancer cells also burns, scars and damages healthy cells, tissues and organs.

8. Initial treatment with chemotherapy and radiation will often reduce tumor size. However prolonged use of chemotherapy and radiation do not result in more tumor destruction.

9. When the body has too much toxic burden from chemotherapy and radiation the immune system is either compromised or destroyed, hence the person can succumb to various kinds of infections and complications.

10. Chemotherapy and radiation can cause cancer cells to mutate and become resistant and difficult to destroy. Surgery can also cause cancer cells to spread to other sites.

11. An effective way to battle cancer is to STARVE the cancer cells by not feeding it with foods it needs to multiple.

What cancer cells feed on:

a. Sugar is a cancer-feeder. By cutting off sugar it cuts off one important food supply to the cancer cells. Note: Sugar substitutes like NutraSweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc are made with Aspartame and it is harmful. A better natural substitute would be Manuka honey or molasses but only in very small amounts. Table salt has a chemical added to make it white in colour. Better alternative is Bragg’s aminos or sea salt.

b. Milk causes the body to produce mucus, especially in the gastro-intestinal tract. Cancer feeds on mucus. By cutting off milk and substituting with unsweetened soy milk, cancer cells will starved.

c. Cancer cells thrive in an acid environment. A meat-based diet is acidic and it is best to eat fish, and a little chicken rather than beef or pork. Meat also contains livestock antibiotics, growth hormones and parasites, which are all harmful, especially to people with cancer.

d. A diet made of 80% fresh vegetables and juice, whole grains, seeds, nuts and a little fruits help put the body into an alkaline environment. About 20% can be from cooked food including beans. Fresh vegetable juices provide live enzymes that are easily absorbed and reach down to cellular levels within 15 minutes t o nourish and enhance growth of healthy cells.

To obtain live enzymes for building healthy cells try and drink fresh vegetable juice (most vegetables including bean sprouts) and eat some raw vegetables 2 or 3 times a day. Enzymes are destroyed at temperatures of 104 degrees F (40 degrees C).

e. Avoid coffee, tea, and chocolate, which have high caffeine. Green tea is a better alternative and has cancer-fighting properties. Water–best to drink purified water, or filtered, to avoid known toxins and heavy metals in tap water. Distilled water is acidic, avoid it.

12. Meat protein is difficult to digest and requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remaining in the intestines will become putrified and leads to more toxic buildup.

13. Cancer cell walls have a tough protein covering. By refraining from or eating less meat it frees more enzymes to attack the protein walls of cancer cells and allows the body’s killer cells to destroy the cancer cells.

14. Some supplements build up the immune system (IP6, Flor-ssence, Essiac, anti-oxidants, vitamins, minerals, EFAs etc.) to enable the body’s own killer cells to destroy cancer cells. Other supplements like vitamin E are known to cause apoptosis, or programmed cell death, the body’s normal method of disposing of damaged, unwanted, or unneeded cells.

15. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit. A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor.

Anger, unforgiving and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment. Learn to have a loving and forgiving spirit. Learn to relax and enjoy life.

16. Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily, and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Oxygen therapy is another means employed to destroy cancer cells.

Best Crash Diets that Work

Crash diets are a solution to several people when they’re looking to lose weight in a short span of time. Most often it’s the only solution when they are in such a hurry. Maybe a look at some of the best crash diets that work could help you if ever the need arises.

Crash diets, also known as fad diets, are mostly taken to around the holiday season since it’s that time of the year when most people want to look really good. Needless to say, it is also that time of the year which is filled with goodies of every kind, especially the kind that are uber hard to resist. But what are these fad diets all about and why do people turn to them so religiously every time they’re looking to shed a few pounds? Maybe looking at it in detail would give us some insight into all these diets. Along with that, we can also take a look at some of the popular ones that people turn to since they are crash diets that actually work.

Fast Crash Diets that Work

There are umpteen crash diets that work fast, thus making them a favorite with many. While some are commonly known diets, others aren’t so much. Here’s a random list of some such diets, which we will go over a little later in detail as well.

Popular Diets

Now that you’re familiar with at least the names of some popular diets, let’s get a better look at them.

Atkins Diet

For starters, the reason this diet is effective is because your consumption of carbohydrates per day is very low, and is supposed to be maintained at less than 20 grams a day. Since you anyway are staying away from the carbs, you are keeping your body from putting on additional weight too. Foods that you are permitted to consume in large quantities as part of this diet are, chicken, turkey, lamb, pork, ham, beef, shrimp, oysters, lobster, salmon, sardines, tuna, eggs (hard / soft boiled, scrambled, fried, poached), cheese (Swiss, cheddar, cream cheese, cottage cheese). Other than this, you can also safely consume vegetables such as mushrooms, bok choy (pak choi), endive, jicama, radish, cucumber, olives, amongst many others. If consumed in moderation, you can also eat spinach, okra, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, eggplant, and zucchini to name a few. On the other hand, there are some foods that you must absolutely stay away from. Here they are… Potato, rice, bread, sugar, beer, and fruit. There are several items that could be added to every list, but these are the most commonly consumed by most.

Grapefruit Diet

Next in line when it comes to the best crash diets that work fast is the grapefruit diet. Word is, this diet has been around for a long time actually. It is believed to have been started in the 1930s by Kelly D. Brownell, PhD, for people who were looking to lose weight quickly. Variations of this diet plan are found aplenty these days, but the basic idea remains the same. Half a grapefruit before every meal because grapefruit has fat burning enzymes which are the key element to contribute towards weight loss. That along with 8 glasses of water a day is the key to losing weight when following this diet.

Cabbage Soup Diet

This one’s popular and how! The cabbage soup diet is one of those crash diets that work in a week. The way this diet works is that you can eat all the cabbage soup you want to eat each day, along with certain other food items, which are in fact such eccentric combinations that you almost lose your taste for food, hence, losing weight. Here’s how this diet plan works… On day one you are expected to eat as much cabbage soup as you please along with any fruit except banana. Day two progresses to soup and vegetables, except peas, corn and beans. Day three is a combination of soup, vegetables and fruits, but no baked potato. Thus it goes on for an entire week. Since there anyway has been an absurd consumption of food (or lack of it) through the week, most people find their weight reduced by at least 10 pounds.

As mentioned above, there are several other diets that you can turn to, these were simply the ones known as the best crash diets that work. If at any point you do decide to take on any of these diets to lose weight, make sure you do not over do it. Also, make sure you set realistic weight loss goals while following any of these plans, so as not to disappoint yourself. As long as you do that, you shouldn’t have much to worry about. So, go ahead, eat healthy, and stay fit.

Quick Crash Dieting Tips

Always take advise from your doctor before you start a crash diet to check if it is suitable for your health or not. This may also provide you with some additional guidance related to diet and weight loss. Then start with these easy to follow crash diet tips given below:

Tips #1: Make small changes. When you are starting your weight loss diet, reduce the number of calories from your diet gradually. Similarly, after the diet, increase your calorie intake slowly. This will help your body to adjust with the changes in a much better manner.

Tips #2:Select your food carefully. The chosen foods should provide you with adequate amount of energy and nutrition required by your body. Fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products, whole grains, nuts, eggs, lean meats should be included in the diet with right proportion. Stay away from processed foods and the so called diet foods. Such foods contain additives and preservatives that may add up to your calories.

Tips #3: Plan your meals. Eat small meals but eat after regular interval of time. Keep a gap of 2 to 3 hours in between two meals and not more than that. Yourdiet plan should include breakfast, lunch and dinner and three healthy snacks. Eat each meal slowly. When you eat fast, you may end up overeating. Another advantage of eating slowly is that it gives your body an impression that you have eaten a lot.

Tips #4: While on a crash diet, drink plenty of water. You should take at least 8 glasses of water daily. It will help the kidney to flush out unwanted toxins from the body and reduce the chances of fluid retention. Make sure that you drink water all through the day at regular interval of time. The last glass of water of the day should be taken 3 hours before you you go to sleep.

Tips #5: Do some aerobic exercises regularly. This will help to improve the metabolism which in turn will burn more calories. Thus you will lose weight faster at the same time you feel more energetic. Ideally, mild to moderate aerobic exercise should be done for half an hour 3-5 times in a week. The schedule for the exercise should be decided as per the capacity of your body. Overdoing exercises should be strictly avoided. While exercising if you feel dizzy or sick, stop them immediately.

Tips #6: Try to avoid any kind of diet pills. These pills have several side effects that can cause harm to your health in the long run. Some people think that weight loss pills with natural ingredients are safe for consumption. Though the fact remains that even such pills are not good for your health.

Tips #7: One of the most important diet and weight loss tips is that do not stay on this diet for more than a few weeks. It is impossible to stay healthy on a low calorie diet for a long period of time.

Hope you find these crash dieting tips given in this article helpful. Do not expect too much from the diet. When your expectations are too high, then you may get disappointed at the end. Initially, you may lose say 10 pounds. Just be happy with that. Then maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to to lose weight progressively. Follow some healthy diet tips that consist of eating proper nutritious food and a regular exercise regime with a long term goal for weight loss.

You are alone in a room doing the normal things that you do, then suddenly a slight chill run at the back of your neck, you feel that your head is growing bigger and bigger, you then feel your spine is tingling and hair on your arms started to stand up. You know someone or something is behind you, and then you slowly turn your head trying to take a glimpse on what you think is an entity. On your peripheral vision you knew there is something staring right behind you. Then when you look around… there is no one. I know one way or another you’ve experienced this or know someone who did. Now if you’re in the same situation and when you look back, a figure of a woman all dressed up in white with blood all over her while her long black hair covers most of her face, would you freak out?!? Hell yeah!!!

Yes I am talking about Ghost. The Filipino term for ghost is Multo from the Spanish word muerte meaning dead. The definition of a ghost – an apparition of a dead person that is believed to appear or become manifest to the living, typically as a nebulous image. Some says multo came back to earth to complete an unfinished task, that they don’t know that they are dead, or take revenge, it may return because of in improper burial or an unusually violent death or suicide. Nobody really knows why they exist and what their purpose in this world but is one is definitely a fact… THEY ARE EVERYWHERE!!!

Now I will be focusing on Multo stories that I’ve heard personally because if you are going to search the web there are hundreds and thousands of stories that you can read. Even though I am not sensitive or a psychic I have a few good stories and experiences of my own with these kind topics.

PULANG SAYA (Red Skirt)

This story is from my grandmother that passed away several years ago. We are still living in an ancestral house at Tanza, Cavite and the house is really old. The architectural design was inspired by Spanish era with capiz slide windows and marble staircase. We also have a mini-garden at the back of our house filled with greenery. We have lots and lots of plants and trees growing in our backyard. In the backyard we have a small nipa hut where we stay to relax or take our snack during hot afternoons. According to my grandmother she was outside the house gathering washed clothes from the clothesline around 6 o’clock pm. Then she noticed someone is at our backyard wearing white shirt and red skirt. My grandmother was a certified obnoxious so seeing someone trespassing our property and it would definitely get her attention. She decided to come closer and take a look closer to identify the lady in red skirt. She noticed that the lady is dancing back and forth in a silent music that as if she’s the only one that can hear. Then finally she decided to confront her but as she walks closer to the figure she noticed rather unusual. Her face cannot be identified as if it is blank, her white shirt is covered in blood, and the most shocking feature of the lady in red skirt is that her feet is not touching the ground. Then suddenly the lady in red skirt finally noticed that my grandma is there all of a sudden she vanishes in thin air. Some of neighbors claimed that they also saw the lady in red skirt in our backyard.

SMALL VOICES

This story was told by my team lead in my present job. Our building is one of the oldest buildings in Valero located in Makati Philippines. It is a 7 story building but we usually occupy the third floor. It is a call center by the way. One night our shift starts at 9 o’clock pm but my team lead usually comes early to updates our daily stats and answers some emails. It was around 7 or 8 in the evening and agents are not allowed to use the stations on the third floor because we follow a seat plan and the 4th floor stations are the first to be occupied. My team lead fond of using the third floor supervisor station goes on with his usual stuff. He always plays loud music using his phone to nullify the silence of the whole 3rd floor. There are a few people and supervisors on the third floor but my team lead is stationed at the isolated area at the west corner so the music is not that bothering. My team lead is busy updating our stats then suddenly on his phone while the music is playing a tiny laugh was heard on his phone as if it was giggling. The giggling sound grew louder and louder as the music comes to an end. My team lead was startled and plays the song back because he knew that it is not a part of music. When he played the song it is still there the eerie giggling as if a child is laughing over the music. He then asked other team leads to listen to the sound and they also heard it. When we came around 9pm he asks us to listen to the music and to the sound of the eerie laugh it was gone. The music plays smoothly and no other sounds were heard. My team leader and even the others that heard the laughing sound was wonder-struck. Then he then told us more stories about the building and the stories of the guards that roam the area. That they also heard the laughing sound and sometimes the chairs will just roll without anyone touching them.

WHY ARE YOU USING MY TOILET?!?

This story is from my friend that happened when he encounters a multo in the men’s comfort room. It is his break time and decided to use the men’s comfort room to take a leak. When he entered the room no one was in sight so he then went to the nearest urinal and started his business. Then a flush from a toilet echoed the comfort room so he thought someone is using the cubicle and just ignored it. When the cubicle opened he waited for the person using that cubicle to come out. When the door of the cubicle went open he is shocked that there is no one inside that cubicle. He then started to feel uneasy and discomfort. He closed his eyes and prayed nothing will happen to him. He then heard the door of the comfort room opened so he was relieved that someone is there but the next thing happened he just wished that he didn’t opened his eyes… a very old man with ripped clothes and glaring angry eyes is at his side then told him “BAKIT MO GINAGAMIT ANG CR KO?” (why are you using my comfort room?)  Then pushed him at the back and he hit the urinal where he is urinating and then the old man went to the cubicle and vanished. My friend went outside screaming.

If you are a Filipino or lives in the Philippines you should know by now that people here are very fond of creating stories that goes way beyond human comprehension. Stories handed from generation to generation with different versions but captured the essence of the subject matter. It is believed that these stories were made just to scare children and keep them inside the house after 6pm. I can still remember way back when I was still in Cavite that grown-ups would tell a story about ghosts, flying creatures, and unknown beings that scares the hell out of us. Now how did they come up with those stories? How come I’ve heard similar stories in televisions, radio shows, and even in movies.

I know you’ll be interested in these topics because anything that is unexplainable is truly worth discovering. Understanding where the story originated and other facts that can be learned about these creatures would definitely enrich a midnight gathering where stories are told and experiences are shared.

In this particular article, I will be focusing on Aswang. Whenever I hear the word aswang or asuwang the first thing that comes to my mind would be monsters, a humanoid being with bloodshot red eyes, long tongue, and pointy teeth.  In my childhood days I always hear the expression “Wag kang malikot kung hindi ipapakain kita sa aswang!” (Behave or else you’ll be fed to the aswang). Now by definition what is an ASWANG?!?

According to Wikipedia:

“Aswangs” are often described as a combination of vampire and witch and are almost always female. They are sometimes used as a generic term applied to all types of witches, manananggals, shapeshifters, lycanthropes, and monsters. Aswang stories and definitions vary greatly from region to region and person to person, so no one particular set of characteristics can be ascribed to the term. However, the term is often used interchangeably with manananggal, which is a particular creature with a specific set of features. They are often portrayed as a monster with wings which flap loudly when she’s far away and quietly when she’s nearer. The most popular original definition however, is that it is a bal-bal (maninilong in Catanauan, Quezon), an eater of the dead. After consumption, the bal-bal replaces the cadaver with banana trunks.

Appearance?

Based from the articles that I have read, an aswang is a regular town people during the day that the prefer the work related to meat such as butchery or making sausages. They said that they live alone in a hut (bahay kubo) and very aloof to people. It is said that if you encounters them you’ll notice that they don’t have philtrum. Philtrum is the area between you nose and mouth with vertical indention. It would look flat between their lips and nose. One thing is that if you will look at their eyes you will see that you reflection will be upside down, that’s the reason they always looking down. Generally they are also described as old woman with white long hair and pale white skin. They also have bloodshot eyes from staying up all night looking for opportunities to sneak into houses where funeral wakes are being held, and stealing the dead bodies.

Before transforming, they undergo a ritual she apply a special kind of oil while chanting an old latin or ancient incantations. Now upon transformation, they can change from human to animal and animal to human. They can transform into a big black bird, a black dog, black pig, cat, and sometimes they mimic the appearance of other human beings that they already devoured. During their nocturnal activities, they walk with their feet facing backwards and toenails reversed.

How they feed?

Aswangs are said to like eating the organs of human beings. They feed on liver and intestines of their victims and the spoils are taken to their hide out and cook it during the day. Aswangs also like to feed on unborn baby of a pregnant woman. For them the scent of the unborn child is like roasted rice puffs (pinipig). Depending on the type of aswang they have their own way of making their meal.

Shapeshifters – transform themselves into a big dog or pig and attacks the victim by tackling them

Manananggal – using her long pointed tongue which they use to suck the children out of their mothers’ wombs or their homes

Ghoul type – replace their live victims or stolen cadavers with facsimiles made from tree trunks or other plant materials. This facsimile will return to the victim’s home, only to become sick and die

Hobot – swoop down a victim and fly them to a certain height then immediately dropping them and killing them with the fall and then devours the body

How to deal with Aswangs?

Buntot-pagi (Stingray’s Tail) – I can still remember my dad have this kept in a cabinet, I wondered what it is and he forbids us in using it because if the Buntot-pagi hits you you’ll be sick and get thin, later I knew that it was used to fight Aswangs. It is use like a whip and lashes on Aswangs doing more hurtful damage to them.

Bawang (Garlic) – wearing garlic around your neck would protect you from being attacked because Aswang doesn’t like the smell of garlic. By hanging a whole chain of garlic at the doors and windows it would prevent the Aswang from coming closer.

Asin (Salt) – by spraying salt to his body it acts like an acid that burns the skin of the creature. In the case of the manananggal where half of its body is left in a remote part of the forrest, it is said that if you found the half of it’s lower body you need to spray salt to it so that the upper half cannot merge with its body.

Araw (Sun) – just like other demonic creature it is said that if the Aswang is caught by a ray of sunlight on beast form it would burn

Aswang Story…

“ito ay aking personal na experience at sa aking mga kamag anak, mula sa lolo at lola, uncle at anti”

“paliwanag ko lng kung ano ang aswang doon sa aming probinsya, ito ay hindi katulad sa napapanood ninyo sa TV o sine na sumisipsip ng dugo o ng aabang ng mabibiktima at kakagatin ang leeg at dudukutin ang puso at hindi sila gabi gabi kumakain o pumapatay ng tao dahil sana marami na tayong nabalitaan sa dyaryo lokal man o national.
“sa probinsya namin ang aswang ay hindi pumapatay ng kapitbahay o kabaranggay dahil madali silang mapaghinalaan, kung ang kapitbahay lng o kabaranggayn lng ang kanilang bibiktimahin.
“bagkus sila po ay pumupunta sa ibang baranggay ng titinda ng kung anu anu at ng hahanap ng mabibiktima at itoy kanilang liligawan o paglalaruan at bibigyan ng sakit, kung bata man ang kanilang bibiktimahin ito ay kanilang hahawakn sa ulo o itoy bibigyan ng anumang pagkain at sa kagabihan e magkakasakit ang taong kursunada nilang kainin.
“at sa kalagitnaan ng malubhang sakit ng tao o ng bata ang aswang po ay aakyat sa bahay ng taong ito at kukunin niya ang taong my sakit, at papalitan nila ang katawan nito ng puno ng saging o tangkay ng niyog, pero sa paningin ng pamilya ay nandoon pa rin yung katawan ng mahal nila, at itoy ikukulong ng aswang sa kanyang tahanan o sa knyang hide out(bat cave).
” ang mangyayari hindi mg sususpetsa ang pamilya ng taong my sakit na ina aswang lng pala ang kanilang mahal sa buhay, gagawin nila ang lahat para gumaling ito, dadalhin nila kung saang saang hospital para lng gumaling ito ngunit walang magagawa ang mga doctor, at pag dating ng panahon na gusto na ng aswang kainin ang taong ito ay kakatayin niya ito na parang baboy at sa panahong iyun mamatay na rin yung katawan ng tao na hawak ng pamilya, n akala nila ay namatay lng sa malubhang sakit.
“ito po ay naranasan lahat ng mahal ko sa buhay kaya iniwan namin ang aming probinsya na hindi ko na po tutukuyin, ang pinsan ng aking mama na kinuha ng tao sa kanilang bahay, nakita ito ng kapitbahay nila na hindi ng salita dahil ng tingnan nya sa higaan ang aking tito ay nandoon pa rin, bagkus ang ginawa nya ay sinundan ang taong my dala sa katawan ng aking tito, at itoy dinala nya sa gitna ng kanipaan (NIPA for making bubung) at doon kinatay ang katawan, sinabi ito ng kapitbahay nila sa magulang ng tito ko pero hindi sila naniwala, pinuntahan nila ang lugar kung saan kinatay ang bangkay pero wala na silang makitang bakas kahit buhok pero nandoon pa ang dugo nito.

Translations:

“this is my personal experience and also stories from my relatives my grandfather, uncle, and aunt.”

“i just want to explain what Aswangs are in my province, it is not the same thing that you see on movies and television that stalks and then bite them in the neck and devours their hearts and drinking their blood, they don’t kill every night just like what they said on the news.”

“in our province, they don’t kill neighbors or townspeople because it could easily blows their cover and identify them as easily.”

“instead, they go to other towns and villages where they sell merchandises while looking for someone to prey. they will court them, play with them, and will give them disease. if they wish to prey on children they’ll just put their hands on their head or give them food that will then turn them ill later at night.”

“in the middle of the child’s sickness the Aswang will go to the prey’s house and will take the sick person and bring him to it’s lair and then replacing the body with a part of banana tree or any trunk of coconut tree.

“the love ones of the victim will not suspect that it is the doing of the Aswang and they will do their best to keep the person alive bringing them from one hospital to another finding a cure. when the time comes that the Aswang wants to eat his prey, he will butcher the victim like a pig and after killing the victim, the facsimile of that person will also die knowing that he died of a sickness.”

“this was experienced by my loved ones that is the reason why we left our province, the cousin of my mother that was taken from them, it was witnessed by their neighbor but decided to become quiet about it because when they checked his uncle was still there, what their neighbor did was to follow the person that kidnapped the body of his uncle, the creature brought to a plantation of Palm and there the body was butchered, our neighbor told this story to my parents but they didn’t believe, they went to the place where it took place but they didn’t see any parts of body but the blood was still there…”

I am sure you already heard of the date December 21, 2012, it is predicted to be the date where the end of the world would take place. Is it really going to end?

What is so special about this date? Well, this popular date is said the start of the “New Age” and end of the existing one. Now here are the facts:

2012 and the Mayan Long Count Calendar

According to the Popol Vuh, a book compiling details of creation accounts known to the K’iche’ Maya of the Colonial-era highlands, we are living in the fourth world and it is coming to an end on December 20, 2012 and the start of the new world would be on December 21, 2012.

Hopi Prophecies

The Hopi prophecies are probably the most famous, as they talk about the “Age of Purification”, and there are many people that believe the signs foretold in this prophecy have happened in the last 50 years or so.

The 9th Sign

You will here of a dwelling place in the Heavens above the Earth that shall fall with a great crash.
It will appear as a blue star.

I Ching

The I Ching has been used for more than 5000 years as an aid to making decisions, predicting the future, etc. So, if nothing else, it is a long-standing and popular source of wisdom and inspiration.

In the 70′s a researcher took an idea of plotting these 64 hexagrams as a function of change from one to the next. Terrance Mckenna’s Astonishing Theory took this to the next level when they graphed this over time, starting with the first hexagram back when the texts were attributed to have originated. A complex computer analysis of the I Ching revealed a hierarchy of 26  timewaves, (each one 64 times larger than the one below), which govern the unfolding of events in the universe. When converted into a single fractal wave, and mapped against history, the graph peaks in 2012.

The Prophecies of Nostradamus 2012

Michel de Nostredame (14 December 1503 or 21 December 1503[1] – 2 July 1566), usually Latinized to Nostradamus, was a French apothecary and reputed seer who published collections of prophecies that have since become famous world-wide. He is best known for his book Les Propheties (The Prophecies), the first edition of which appeared in 1555. Since the publication of this book, which has rarely been out of print since his death, Nostradamus has attracted an enthusiastic following who, along with the popular press, credits him with predicting many major world events. Nostradamus enthusiasts have credited him with predicting:

The Great Fire of London – The Great Fire of London consumed nearly two-thirds of London in 1666.

The blood of the just will be demanded of London, Burnt by the fire in the year 66
The ancient Lady will fall from her high place And many of the same sect will be killed
(Century 2, Quatrain 1)

The First Antichrist: Napoleon I – The Napoléonic campaigns and wars were fought, won and lost at the cost of millions of French lives – as well as those of Allied and Client states.

An Emperor will be born near Italy Who will cost the Empire dearly.
It will be said when his allises are seen that he is less a Prince than a butcher
(Century 1, Quatrain 60)

The Second Antichrist: Adoph Hitler – Nostradamus referred to Hitler in many quatrains by calling him Hister. Nostradamus was
well known to use words very similar to the actual words in his predictions. This particular quatrain gives the reader a vivid picture of Germany during World War II.

Beasts ferocious from hunger will swim across rivers The greater part of the region will be against the Hister,
The great one will cause it to be dragged in an iron cage When the German child will observe nothing.
(Century 2, Quatrain 24)

September 11, 2001 Terrorist attacks on the WTC – In an illustration by Nostradamus himself, from the Lost Book Of Nostradamus, depicts a burning tower. The above quatrain was immediately thought of after the 9 11 attacks. New
York City (great new city) is roughly located near 45 degrees. The sky did burn and fire
approached the city.

A forty-five degrees the sky will burn, Fire to approach the great new city: In an instant a great scattered flame will leap up,
When one will want to demand proof of the Normans.
(Century 6, Quatrain 97)

For the year 2012, it is said that Nostradamus predicted the impending invasion of Europe by Muslim forces from further east and south headed by the expected 3rd Antichrist. It is also said that assassination of the pope or destruction of Rome by a nuclear bomb could happen. Interpretations of a massive global calamity after the destruction of Rome is upon us caused by a heavenly body that many believe that might be the elusive Planet X.

The Third Antichrist: World War III
The antichrist very soon annihilates the three, twenty-seven years his war will last.
The unbelievers are dead, captive, exiled; with blood, human bodies, water and red hail covering the earth.
(Century 8, Quatrain 77)

Planet X Appears
The great star for seven days will burn, The cloud will make two suns appear;
The great mastiff will be all night howling, Whe the great pontiff changes his land.
(Centru 2, Quatrain 41)

Web Bot Predictions

Web Bot, or the Web Bot Project, refers to an Internet bot software program that is claimed to be able to predict future events by tracking keywords entered on the Internet. It was created in 1997, originally to predict stock market trends. The creator of the Web Bot Project, Clif High, along with his associate George Ure, who call themselves “The Time Monks”,keep the technology and algorithms largely secret and sell the predictions via the website.

Some of the latest predictions of Web Bot

2010/??/?? : The “Death of the Dollar” will be a continuing trend, with a hyper inflationary period and banking crises/confidence losses that will begin in August 2009.
2010/08/?? : In South America, they’ll be large or mass sightings of UFO-related phenomena. A video crew will interview an escapee from an internment facility. The young bald man will later be revealed to be a “non-Terran” human. Sustainable living will be the only way to survive the upcoming economic change and food shortages.
2011/04/?? : “Global Coastal Phenomena” will be gradual, the situation could be disturbing for many people. Unusual movements of the Moon brought on by anomalies in the magnetosphere could cause coastal disruptions.
2011/05/?? : The magnetosphere problems could lead to ultraviolet scorching of food crops. Grain crops will fail, mainly in the Northern Hemisphere, leading to food riots in the winter/spring. Specifically, they’ll be riots in Rome that will spill over into the Vatican.
2011 – Extra-terrestrial aliens presence and/or warfare possible.
There will be an untimely demise for millions by 2012, brought upon by some combination of pandemics, economic collapse, breakdown of health care and unknown energies from space.

Edgar Cayce and 2012

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) has been called the “sleeping prophet,” the “father of holistic medicine,” and the most documented psychic of the 20th century. For more than 40 years of his adult life, Cayce gave psychic “readings” to thousands of seekers while in an unconscious state, diagnosing illnesses and revealing lives lived in the past and prophecies yet to come.

Edgar Cayce’s Actual Readings about coming Earth Changes including a Pole Shift::

From Reading #3976-15 (Given on January 19, 1934)

“As to the changes physical again: The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the east coast of America. There will be the upheavals in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will be shifting then of the poles – so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow. And these will begin in those periods in ’58 to ’98, when these will be proclaimed as the periods when His light will be seen again in the clouds. As to times, as to seasons, as to places, ALONE is it given to those who have named the name – and who bear the mark of those of His calling and His election in their bodies. To them it shall be given.”

Question: “What are the world changes to come this year (1934) physically?”
EC: “The earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the west coast of America. There will be open waters appear in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and DRY land will appear. There will be the falling away in India of much of the material suffering that has been brought on a troubled people. There will be the reduction of one risen to power in central Europe to naught. The young king son will soon reign. In America in the political forces we see a re-stabilization of the powers of the peoples in their own hands, a breaking up of the rings, the cliques in many places. South America shall be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off of Tierra Del Fuego LAND, and a strait with rushing waters.”

Question: “To what country is the reference made regarding the young king?”
EC: “In Germany.”

From reading 270-35 (given on January 21, 1936):

“If there are the greater activities in the Vesuvius, or Pelee, then the southern coast of California–and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada–may expect, within the three months following same, an inundation by the earthquakes.

“But these, as we find, are to be more in the southern than in the northern hemisphere.”

From Reading #1152-11 (Given on August 13, 1941)

“As to conditions in the geography of the world, of the country, – changes here are gradually coming about.”

“No wonder, then, that the entity feels the need, the necessity for change of central location. For, many portions of the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the U.S.”

“In the next few years lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as in the Pacific. And what is the coast line now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many of the battle fields of the present will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which the NEW order will carry on their trade as one with another.”

“Portions of the now east coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia – these will disappear. This will be much sooner.”

“The waters of the lakes will empty into the Gulf, rather than the waterway over which such discussions have been recently made. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered.”

“Then the area where the entity is now located [Virginia Beach] will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada; while the western land – much of that is to be disturbed – in this land – as, of course, much in other lands.”

Question: “I have for many months felt that I should move away from New York City.”
EC: “This is well, as indicated. There is too much unrest; there will continue to be the character of vibrations that to the body will be disturbing, and eventually those destructive forces there – though these will be in the next generation.”

Question: “Will Los Angeles be safe?”
EC: “Los Angeles, San Francisco, most all of these will be among those that will be destroyed before New York even.”

Question: “Should California or Virginia Beach be considered at all, or where is the right place that God has already provided for me to live?”
EC: “As indicated, these choices should be made rather in self. Virginia Beach or the area is much safer as a definite place.”

No one really knows when the world will end. Whether you believe it or not, it is still spooky that it points to a very specific date. It would be a combination of fear, excitement, and doubt when all these prophecies come to reality.

Nature never stops to amaze us with its beauty and how mysterious the formations are made.  One of the phenomenons that behold anyone that encounters it is the Sinkhole. A sinkhole, also known as a sink, shake hole, swallow hole, swallet, doline or cenote, is a natural depression or hole in the Earth’s surface caused by karst processes — the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks or suffosion processes for example in sandstone. Sinkholes may vary in size from 1 to 600 meters (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide. The different terms for sinkholes are often used interchangeably.

How they are formed:

Sinkholes are formed when a swath of land collapsed, leaving behind a crater-like depression in the ground. Commonly it is said that a ground rich in limestone, carbonates and salt beds. When groundwater flows through these rocks, it eats away at them, leaving behind subterranean holes and caverns. When the roof of one of these caverns collapses, it takes the land above down with it.

Recently, I’ve heard stories that Japan is sinking literally to the Pacific Ocean. This is an alarming news that needed some clarifications and confirmations.

First, there are videos posted on YouTube showing a lot of “liquefaction” on some parts of the country. Liquefaction and I quote is the “transformation of a granular material (soil) from a solid state into a liquefied state as a consequence of increased pore-water pressure induced by earthquakes”. After the 9.0 magnitude earthquake hits Japan some of its coastline, rivers, and harbors became wet, sandy soil started jiggling, turning it from solid to liquid state. Heavy sand and rock sinks, while water and lighter sand bubble to the surface. The slurry spreads, often toward the water, and the surface shifts. Here are some of the videos of the said phenomenon:


Prophecy of the Sinking of Japan

Edgar Cayce (1877-1945), the so-called “sleeping prophet”, made a number of remarkably accurate predictions of the future. In 1934, Cayce predicted the beginning and end of World War II many years before it happened. He also predicted the end of Communism. In 1941 he stated “The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea.” – The Edgar Cacye Prophecies

According to Edgar Cayce reading 3976-15 “As to the changes physical again: The earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portion of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye …”

The Sinking of Japan the Movie

The creepy part of this story is that the Japanese created a movie that depicted Edgar Cayce’s prophecy. Here are some of the clips:

Conclusion:

As of today there is no definite evidence that Japan will be submerging to the sea in the near future. It will be a disaster of massive proportion if something like in the movie “The Sinking of Japan” would take place. Hopefully our scientist would discover a way to predict these kind of calamities sooner so that there would be fewer casualties.

The world has always been fascinated by the fact that we are not the only intelligent being in this universe. We seek the truth about UFO, Aliens, Extra terrestrial, and other unexplainable phenomenon. If you are going to browse the Internet, you’ll find millions and millions of articles with regards to the topic . There are web sites designed to cater such curiosity of the public and feed their hunger in finding out the truth. Some are misleading, some are just gimmicks, and most are just pure science fiction. But what if there is truth behind all these, they wouldn’t be famous over the Internet if there is no source of speculations.

How about Area 51? Area 51 is a military base, and a remote detachment of Edwards Air Force Base. It is located in the southern part of Nevada in the western United States, 83 miles (133 km) north-northwest of downtown Las Vegas. Situated at its center, on the southern shore of Groom Lake, is a large military airfield. The base’s primary purpose is to support development and testing of experimental aircraft and weapons systems. Because of the tight military restriction on Area 51 its been targeted by conspiracy theories such as it was the containment area of a crashed alien space craft and a place where extra terrestrial are met in close contacts.

Recent post from YouTube shows that UFO sightings are more frequent and footage are a lot clearer. They are also very disturbing. It seems that during natural calamities or disaster, UFO sightings are more often captured on videos.  It really doesn’t matter if you’re a believer or skeptic its worth watching.

Who can ever say no to the taste of homemade Chicharon? It is a Filipino delicacy made from pork, chicken, or beef skin deep fried in oil or pork lard seasoned with MSG (mono sodium glutamate and salt). It is served best with vinegar with garlic usually eaten as an appetizers or “pulutan” (beer food). Tasty and crunchy, this is how a chicharon is usually described but what if I tell you that those are not the only variety of words that fits this category.

March 26, 2011, the GMA7 documentary show Imbestigador exposed yet another disgusting way of handling processed foods. They went undercover and recorded videos of stomach turning and unsanitary way of preparing one of Filipino’s most loved snacks, the Chicharon. In this video you can see how the pork rinds and fats are prepared on dirty floors. Workers used meat unfit for human consumptions. The tools being used are contaminated by dead insects, animal feces, and all sorts of crap. The oil being used to cook the animal fats is as dark as used motor oil.

Still hungry? Well I recommend you watch this video and think twice the next time your craving for Chicharon. :p
