) 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.
Early in the spring of 1986 I began a year-long pilgrimage around Europe by bicycle. Over four seasons I cycled through eleven countries to visit, study and photograph more than 135 holy places. In succeeding years I traveled to Europe several additional times, visiting other countries and their sacred sites. These travels took me to the sacred places of Megalithic, Greek and Celtic cultures as well as to the pilgrimage sites of medieval and contemporary Christianity. For many thousands of years our ancestors have been visiting and venerating the power places of Europe. One culture after another has often frequented the same power places. The story of how these magical places were discovered and used is filled with myths of cosmic and cometary induced world destroying cataclysms, astronomers and sages, and nature spirits and angels. Misconceptions about the so-called Ice Age and its glacier coverage Before beginning our discussion of the megalithic use of power places in ancient Europe we should first address certain misconceptions regarding the cause of the transition between the Paleolithic and Neolithic eras. According to conventional beliefs (deriving from incorrect assumptions of the Uniformitarian theory of Charles Lyell and the Ice Age or glacial theory of Louis Agassiz in the early 1800's) enormous glaciers once covered vast regions of the northern hemisphere. These conventional beliefs state that the levels of the world's oceans were lower during the glacier age because of all the water supposedly frozen up in the polar ice cap. Between 13,000 and 8000 BC the vast glaciers melted and the levels of the world oceans rose by 120 meters. The effect of this glacial melting and sea level rise on archaic European life marked the end of the Paleolithic and the beginning of the Neolithic.
This idea of a so-called Ice Age, with enormous glaciers covering vast areas of the northern hemisphere, has been debated by numerous scientific studies in the fields of geology, paleontology, biology, zoology, climatology, anthropology and mythology. Readers interested in learning more about these studies and their revelations regarding the Ice Age and its less-than-previously-assumed glacier coverage, as well as alternative dates for the occurrence of the Ice Age, will enjoy the books Cataclysm: Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 BC, by Allan & Delair ( Amazon.com
) and Ice Age Civilizations, by James Nienhuis (Amazon.ca
). The factual material presented in this scholarly book is slowly making its way into university courses and text books around the world, thereby rewriting our understanding of early Neolithic times.
Cosmic and cometary induced cataclysms - 9500, 7640, 3150 and 1198 BC Prior to embarking on a discussion regarding the discovery and use of power places by humans during Neolithic times there is another - and critically important - matter that must be explored first. This concerns the pass-by and actual impact of cosmic and cometary objects at four distinct periods in the prehistoric past. To begin to explore this matter let us first refer to the enigmatic writings of the 4th century BC Greek philosopher Plato. In the Timaeus dialogues, these being a record of discussions between the Greek statesman Solon and an Egyptian priest, Plato report the following:
"You Greeks are all children. You have no belief rooted in the old tradition and no knowledge hoary with age. And the reason is this. There have been and will be many different calamities to destroy mankind, the greatest of them by fire and water, lesser ones by countless other means. You remember only one deluge, though there have been many.
What might these calamities be which Plato's Egyptian informants are referring to? Evidence has accumulated from a variety of scientific disciplines which demonstrate that a massive cosmic object (probably a portion of an astronomically-near supernova explosion) passed close by the earth in approximately 9500 BC. This cosmic event caused a worldwide cataclysm of enormous proportions, including massive shifting of the earth's surface, devastating volcanic activity, mega-tsunami waves, subsidence of regional landmasses, and mass extinctions of both animals and humans. In this regard it is vitally important to note that many of the geological and biological effects previously attributed to the hypothesized glacier movements of ice age times could NOT have been caused by the slow movement of ice but were in fact caused by the rapid and vast displacement of oceanic bodies of water (this being caused by the irresistible gravitational pull of the enormous cosmic object passing by the earth). Additionally, the species-wide animal extinctions caused by this event occurred far beyond the geographical boundaries set for the 'Ice Age glaciations' by orthodox theorists.
The shifting of the earth's surface, termed crustal displacement by its primary theorist, Charles Hapgood, was also studied by Einstein who reported, "One can hardly doubt that significant shifts of the earth's crusts have taken place repeatedly and within a short time."
To read more about the cosmic object pass-by and the ensuing crustal displacement of 9500 BC, refer to Cataclysm by D.S. Allan & J.B. Delair, The Atlantis Blueprint by Colin Wilson and Rand Flem-Ath, and Catastrophobia by Barbara Hand Clow.
Approximately 2000 years later, in roughly 7640 BC, a cometary object sped towards the earth. This time, however, rather than passing by the earth as the cosmic object of 9500 BC had done, the cometary object actually entered the atmosphere, broke into seven pieces, and impacted the earth at known locations on the planet's oceans. The following map shows the general location of each of the seven impacts. [Please follow Apparently Apparel on Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, and check out our new AA toolbar!]
Micro Gravity Reading of Great Pyramid - © Shaughnessy 2013
by Zach Royer, Kahuna Research Group
I have personally done a lot of research into the mysteries surrounding pyramids. Their purpose, their functions, their builders..all of which have seemed to elude even the greatest researchers, but none of those mysteries compare in size to what could be the most radical, life-altering, climate-changing theory about the pyramids to ever be written - that they are basically the turn-on switch of an earth-sized thermostat.At left is an image of a Micro Gravity Reading of the Great Pyramid of Giza called the Densitogram. This image outlines the gravity wave changing the density of the material on the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Allow me to explain further...
While researching for an up and coming book I'm co-authoring with VortexMaps.com's Dan Shaw, I happened upon the work of physicist John Shaughnessy, who recently wrote the book called "Pyramid Gravity Force", a book outlining why the pyramids were created to control the weather long, long ago. He also created an entirely new law of gravity called Hexagontum Physics to back up his work.

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.

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."

There's a vampire on the loose. Whether you're at work, at home or out on the town, this vampire is taking a bite out of your wallet and harming the environment. But, there's no need to barricade the house and stock up on garlic just yet. This vampire works entirely though your electrical outlets and stopping this monster can be as easy as pulling a few plugs.
The villain in question is vampire power
, also known as standby power
and phantom load
, from what is called a vampire device
. You can also find it referred to as vampire energy, leaking energy, wall warts, standby loss, idle current, phantom power, ghost load, ghost charge, and vampire load. The terms refers to the electricity many gadgets and appliances waste just by being plugged in (even if they're switched off
). After all, what do you think your cell-phone charger does all day while it's plugged into the wall? If it's warm when you get home from work, then it's been using electricity -- even if it had nothing to charge.
Individually, your rechargeable electric toothbrush may not put that much strain on the local power plant, but the big picture is far more troubling. In the United States alone, vampire power costs consumers more than $3 billion a year [source: Energy Information Administration
]. Over time, many microwaves
and televisions actually consume more electricity during the hours they're not in use than the times you're actually using them to heat up dinner and watch your favorite show.
How do you fight off the ravages of vampire power? In this article, you'll learn why this energy loss happens and how to slay it once and for all.

It is safe to say that there isn’t and will never be an energy crisis, under the premise of new or free energy. Energy is all around us. Energy is free for the taking. How you get free infinite energy is so simple.
Our Sun emits electromagnetic energy and that energy showers down on us throughout the whole 24 hours, and if a energy receiving device (an antenna) can easily be built to harness and use this power it will not require devices for storing energy as would be necessary with devices using wind, tide or sunlight.
In one hour, or 3600 seconds, our Sun produces 1.4 x 10^31 Joules of energy or 3.8 x 10^23 kilowatt-hours. It’s been doing this for about 4.5 billion years and will continue to do this every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day, of every year – for another 4.5 billion years. That means free energy will be available to mankind for another 4.5 billion years.
Today, in 2012, we can remove every gasoline combustion engine and replace it with a zero emission electric motor. At the same time we can remove the gas tank, the fuel lines, the exhaust system, the water pump, radiator, and all emission control devices because an electric motor car doesn’t need them. We didn’t need them 81 years ago and we don’t need them now.
Nikola Tesla proved in 1931 that it is possible to power our vehicles without a drop of fossil fuel. He removed the gasoline engine of a Pierce Arrow and replaced it with an electric motor and drove for hours, at speeds as high as 90 mph. Today, 81 years later, it is still possible to convert any gasoline engine vehicle into an all-electric vehicle and it will operate for hours – without having to stop and recharge. Not a drop of oil, gasoline, hydrogen fuel, natural gas or water. No combustion engine. No exhaust system. No pollution.

) 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.
