) In the wake of the recent string of solar flares
, some Americans--particularly Gulf Coast residents--may be wondering whether there are places in the U.S. that are safe from such natural disasters. The short answer? No. The Midwest may not be vulnerable to hurricanes, but twisters drop in regularly. Major earthquakes don't tend to strike New England, but strong winds can peel the roof off a northeastern house and snowstorms can shut down cities.
"Every location in the country is exposed to one disaster or another," says Wendy Rose
, spokeswoman for the Institute for Business & Home Safety, a Tampa, Fla.-based nonprofit insurance industry group that aims to reduce losses from natural catastrophes.
Still, some places are less susceptible than others to natural hazards. To get an idea where they might be, we partnered with Sperling's Best Places ( www.bestplaces.net
), a data collection company based in Portland, Ore. Sperling's has compiled weather and disaster data for 331 metropolitan statistical areas in the U.S., and we used the information to discern the safest--and least safe--areas in which to live.
The Ancients knew the secrets - which have been hidden from mankind
Excerpted from Pyramid Rising~It Isn't The End of The World! How We'll Survive 2012 & Beyond by Zach Royer, a new two-part Kindle eBook exclusive.
The planetary clock is moving inexorably closer to the winter solstice of 2012. Prophecies about “the End of the World” and the inevitable destruction of the greater part of the human race have become the most discussed topic on our TV screens, internet chat rooms, and in the media generally.
In the scenarios most often suggested the Earth’s future is presented as a succession of planetary-scale catastrophes, in the face of which a considerable portion of humanity helplessly awaits “the End”. But the “End of the World” is not coming and the vast majority of the Earth’s population will not perish, although serious trials and tribulations do lie ahead for humanity. Coming events will unfold in close connection with processes taking place on the sun which will really begin in late December 2012, when solar activity reaches its peak. Between 16 and 28 December (the phase of the winter solstice) the planet’s core will begin to radiate a flow of energies that, overlying the solar radiation, will stimulate the activity of processes in the Earth’s bio- and geospheres. Super-powerful coronal discharges will bring our planet magnetic storms of unprecedented force that will cause climatic and shorter-term weather anomalies, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, diseases and local conflict.
By correlating many large earthquakes that took place at or near specific 'World Grid' sites from throughout history, such as Giza, Stonehenge, Tiahuanaco, and from many other grid locations (there are 62 in all), I have observed and plotted a definite relationship between these megalithic sites and heightened global seismic activity; an interconnectedness between the cyclical earth changes and these magnificent structures built by man(?) has become apparent. Modern day researchers are just now beginning to theorize about this, investigating what is referred to as the "Planetary Grid".
Two immediate theories came to mind when pondering WHY someone would go out of their way to place megaliths and pyramids all throughout the world, and my overall conclusions were startling, published in my first official paper as an aspiring researcher.
As above, so below.
Are cosmic rays capable of altering human DNA?
By Zach RoyerSeventy million years ago
, the earth was inhabited by giant reptiles: gigantic lizards, colossal saurains, who slithered, swam, flew. Their reign lasted one hundred million years - whereas, according to the most optimistic estimates, man has had barely six million years.This means that these species of reptiles had in order to become adapted and to evolve, an infinitely longer time than man. Furthermore, it is impossible to pretend that they represented an evolutionary failure: any species that lasts a hundred million years must be considered to be fully adapted. Yet few species that were contemporaries of those reptiles survive -- for example, certain crabs, which have not changed in three hundred million years. In fact, in less than one million years the giant reptiles entirely disappeared.How and Why?We can scarcely maintain that it was because a change in climate; for even when the climate changes, the oceans hardly vary, and many of these reptiles lived in the oceans.It is impossible to believe that a higher form of life was able to exterminate them. This would have required a considerable army, whose traces we would certainly have found.One amusing hypothesis is that our ancestors, the mammals, might have fed on dinosaur eggs. But it is only that: an amusing hypothesis: the icthyosaurs deposited their eggs in the oceans, out of their adversaries' reach.It has been said that the grasses changed, and that the new grasses were too tough for the big reptiles. A completely unlikely hypothesis: large numbers of vegetation types have survived, on which they could have fed perfectly well. The giant tortoises of the Galapagos Islands, the ones that interested Darwin so much, did not die of hunger.One could say that species grow old, become senile, and die. But this is bad logic: the preservation of the genetic code prevents a species from dying out. And why haven't those species that are still living after several hundred millions of years, such as crabs and cockroaches, become senile too?None of these hypotheses hold. But something
happened. What then? An ingenious hypothesis has been outlined by two Soviet scientists, V. I. Krasovkii and I. S. Chklovski, both of whom are eminent astrophysicists -- especially the latter, who is the author of some extremely important works in astrophysics and radio astronomy. It was Chklovski, in fact, who studied synchotron radiation and showed that relatively rapid and extremely violent events can be produced at the center of galaxies as well as in space in general.

Great Pyramids of.... Antarctica?
Contributed by Zach Royer
) There’s talk all over the internet about pyramids
in Antarctica, something we at Apparently Apparel love to write about
. What appears to be causing all the discussion is this picture, showing what looks like two, possibly three pyramids lined up Giza style, nearly covered in snow and ice.
Frankly, I think we’re looking at plain ordinary mountains here, albeit ones of unusual apparent symmetry. But suppose we ARE looking at pyramids (and I think the size of these mountains would preclude that, but that’s just me), or, to put it differently, supposed there WERE pyramids in Antarctica? What would it mean?
Well, for one thing, it would confirm the speculations of many Atlantologists (including, incidentally, the Nazis), who believe that the ice-covered continent was in fact Atlantis, the continent literally being “sunk” under water, in this case, ice. The presence of such structures would raise the bar considerably not only for Atlantology but also for the possible motivations of the Nazi expedition in late 1938 and early 1939, and make it likely – if they discovered such structures during their aerial reconnaissance flights over the southern continent – that they decided to follow up with further investigations.
The reason any discovery of such structures on Antarctica would be significant is rather obvious, for the possibility would be quite strong that if they could be excavated (a mighty big if in Antarctica’s case!) the sites might yield some significant records or artifacts of a lost human past. One might even speculate that the discovery of ancient records and technologies might be considered a top prize. Such a discovery could rationalize not only the curious Nazi expedition, but also the postwar attempts not only to internationalize the continent but to keep the curious visitor OUT of the continent.
While I remain skeptical at this moment, the story is nonetheless worth watching, providing, of course, that we don’t get the usual mix of internet hysteria and hype (and yes, already the story has been predictably linked to extra-terrestrials and secret Nazi flying saucer research bases.)
Another story that just surfaced today is about palm trees having once thrived in Antarctica, when it was much warmer of course, which included the image below by Etienne Classen of Integrated Ocean Drilling Program
. The picture shows a pyramid structure surrounded by ice right in the center of the shot, right on the coast, as if this was what they were trying to photograph, an obvious clue which prompted the research and writing of this story. [Author's Note: I've Googled the supposed photographer Etienne Classen and the only thing coming up is the article about palm trees and the image below, no profiles or bio, basically it's as if Etienne is a new name given by whoever submitted this photograph. In order to go to the Antarctic, don't you think you have to be a scientist with a verifiable background? Anyone else notice this, or is it just me? ZR]

Is Dr. Patrick Flanagan Tesla Reincarnated?VANCOUVER, B.C.
- ExopoliticsTV today released a wide-ranging July 11, 2012 interview by Alfred Lambremont Webre with scientist Patrick Flanagan (website is down currently)
and New Energy Congress founder Sterling Allan
covering Nikola Tesla's 1902 interactive communications with an intelligent civilization on Mars civilization, Tesla-techology for time travel, and the hypothesis that Patrick Flanagan may be the "reincarnation" of scientist Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943), based of a pattern of regularities in the early and mid-life of Patrick Flanagan that have been found by (now deceased) parapsychologist Prof. Ian Stevenson
of the University of Virginia Medical School to establish authenticity of identified prior lives. Patrick Flanagan - Scientific biography
According to his biography, Patrick Flanagan
, who was born on Oct. 11, 1944 (22 months after Nikola Tesla died), "invented the Neurophone in 1958. It is an electronic nervous system excitation device that transmits sound through the skin directly to the brain, for which he received U.S. Patent no.3,393,279 in 1968.
"The invention earned him a profile in Life magazine, which called him a “unique, mature and inquisitive scientist”. Flanagan has continued to develop the Neurophone and it is currently being sold as an aid to speed learning.
"Flanagan at age eleven developed and sold a guided missile detector to the U.S. Military, aged seventeen gained his air pilot’s license and was employed by a Think Tank at The Pentagon, and later as a consultant to the NSA, CIA, NASA, Tufts University, the Office of Naval Research, and the Aberdeen Proving Grounds for the Department of Unconvential Weapons and Warfare.
"Since 1981 Flanagan has invented a series of useful devices and products based on water and specific mineral structures, in the area of health. Several of these have been very successful in the marketplace. His identification of the special properties of the negative hydride ion while once ridiculed got serious attention when the Nobelist Chandrasekhar proposed it as a major component in far space. Several scientific papers by Flanagan, about Silica Hydride have been published in peer reviewed journals such as the ‘International Journal of Hydrogen Energy’, and ‘Free Radical Biology and Medicine’.
"Flanagan actively continues his activities as scientist and inventor and philanthropist, promoting the really new science and new approaches to human healing, especially those based on the great traditions of India and Egypt."
Build a PVC pyramid in under 30 minutes
Contributed by Zach Royer
) There are many different sizes of pyramids you can build, and different ways to build them. The faces in a pyramid are not needed to produce the energy, only the edges, and so a pyramid "frame" can be built. It is interesting to note that a pyramid with faces but no edges doesn't work. All the pyramid designs here are based on the great pyramid's ratios. Any pyramid will work to some degree, but the Cheops pyramid works best.
The great pyramid is believed to be built to Phi or the Golden Section
(Phi is 1.6180). I will cover how to figure that out later. I will also cover construction of small solid faced pyramids, as well as larger frame ones. Additionally I will show you how to build tetrahedrons and cones, which work too.

) These strange underwater pyramid structures at a depth of two thousand meters were identified with the help of a sonar according to oceanographer Dr. Verlag Meyer. Studies of other structures like Yonaguni in modern day Japan have allowed scientists to determine that the two giant pyramids, apparently made of something like a thick glass, are really impressive - each of them is larger than the pyramid of Cheops in Egypt.
Recently American and French scientists as well as other countries that are conducting surveys in areas of the seabed of the Bermuda Triangle, claim to have found a pyramid standing upright on the seabed that has never been discovered. The length of the base of this pyramid reached 300 meters, 200 meters height, and distance from base to the tip of the pyramid is about 100 meters above the sea floor. Preliminary results show this structure to be made of glass or a glass-like (crystal?) material, as it is entirely smooth and partially translucent.
When talking about size, this newly re-discovered pyramid is larger in scale than the pyramids of ancient Egypt. On top of the pyramid there are two very large holes, sea water at high speed move through the second hole, and therefore the raging waves roll by forming a giant vortex that makes the waters around this cause a massive surge waves and mist on the sea surface. This new discovery makes scientists wonder if this is having an affect on passing boats and planes and could be the reason for all the mystery surrounding the area.
These videos are a typical and frustrating example of everything that is both wonderful and terrible about the internet. Confused? I thought so.
The Wonderful Part:
It seems that this scientist is demonstrating what is called an elemental rod generator in which there are two rods, one made of 73 elements and the other of 74. According to the scientist, Dr. James B. Schwartz, the polarity of the rods means a potential difference builds up due to background radiation hitting the rods. The result is that you can get a current (excuse the pun) to pass from one rod to the other constantly. Which makes this a generator that can run forever, or at least until background radiation stops.....which I'm sure won't be any time soon.
The frustrating part:
The total lack of information on the videos - we have no names, no dates, no locations. But fear not since I am the internet king and have dugg out a few documents discussing the theories of an elemental rod generator. I'm no scientist, and I'm hoping that some of you are, so I'm laying down a challenge to you - show the video and the below documents to your science teacher/professor and lets get to the bottom of this. Try not to dismiss it out of hand, I know you scientists love to do that.
The Most Interesting Man in the World - Nikola Tesla
) On this official government website, is a press conference from 1997 and this is Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen speaking.
Cohen answers the press saying, quote "Others are engaging even in an eco- type of terrorism whereby they can alter the climate, set off earthquakes, volcanoes remotely through the use of electromagnetic waves.
So there are plenty of ingenious minds out there that are at work finding ways in which they can wreak terror upon other nations. It's real, and that's the reason why we have to intensify our efforts, and that's why this is so important." Endquote.
"Scientist" Michio Kaku (this man is plastered all over our television) telling you all about his Kabbalah belief system (same one that Einstein practiced and followed) and evolution of man into God's. Of couse what is this superhuman evolution based on, besides the Kabbalah (which is just Luciferianism as I show in my other videos)? Nothing...which is exactly what this man has contributed to society. He says that anyone against a New World Order and this new "scientific religion" is a terrorist. Somehow Madonna (Kabbalah) and Arnold Schwarzenegger who wears skull and bone belts on Magazine covers and speaks at the Bohemian Grove (google it) have something to do with his rambling. I wonder what...Anyways, let's get to the movie...(Don't forget to write that comment you just thought of in our all new Forum area!)
