I’m a recreational cannabis refugee. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to avoid the potential of being thrown in a cage for smoking a flower that makes my life better.
I’m old enough to remember when good marijuana was rare and called “kine buds.” Kine comes from Hawaiian pigeon speak for “the good kind.” Since Hawaii has had a long love affair with potent pakalolo (crazy smoke), with strains like Maui Waui becoming world famous, kine became universal slang for “the good weed” even for a teenager like me in the 1990s in Connecticut.
Brick weed of unknown origin was much more common in those days. As the legalization of cannabis expands, so does the knowledge of the best strains and their effects. Today brick weed is all but extinct in the United States while genetic strains of cannabis are becoming very sophisticated.
Crowd sourcing experiences may prove more accurate than clinical studies could ever be. Sites like Leafly and others have curated thousands of experiences about how different strains and doses of cannabis affect people. Although marijuana effects seem to be unique for each individual, much like various alcohol drinks are, some common traits are identifiable.
In a previous article, I described the general differences between sativa and indica strains. Sativa has a more energetic, heady and creative effect, while indica is more pain-relieving and sleep-inducing.
I cannot believe that with all the evidence that we STILL allow our water to be poisoned by our Government. I don’t drink tap water and won’t until this poison is removed from our water supply. I don’t use fluoridated toothpaste either because it is common sense at this point that this stuff isn’t good for you.
The science that fluoride is a health risk is overwhelming and one must ask WHY does the Government insist on putting this in our water? It certainly isn’t for our good health.
Fluoride is commonly found in tap water thanks to a process called fluoridation – which the U.S. government has been repeatedly telling us is a safe and effective way to protect teeth from decay, according to Global Research.
But a recent study published in The Lancet, the world’s most renowned medical journal, has actually classified fluoride as a neurotoxin – something which has a negative impact on brain development – alongside other extremely toxic compounds such asarsenic, lead and mercury.
A large number of cities within the U.S. are pumping their drinking water systems full of fluoride, and the government is claiming that there are no health risks to this unnecessary practice.
WHY IS FLUORIDE ADDED TO WATER?
Fluoride is added to water because of an outdated notion that it prevents dental decay, according to Scientific American. If applied frequently in low concentrations, the U.S. is being led to believe that it increases the rate of growth and size of tooth enamel – which helps to reverse the formation of small cavities.
But, modern studies show that dental decay rates are so low in the U.S. that the effects of water fluoridation cannot actually be measured. This means that the benefit of water fluoridation is not clinically relevant, according to Fluoride Alert.
There are many safer ways to provide fluoride for your teeth if they are deficient. In fact, there is a very easy one time gel treatment that takes only 15 minutes and lasts a lifetime, according to Ye Olde Journalist. Teenagers and young adults that have dental fluoride deficiency can easily be tested – although it is likely that their dentist will have noticed the problem and already suggested ways to improve the condition.
What little benefit fluoridated water might actually provide comes entirely through its topical application – meaning that fluoride does not need to be swallowed to benefit teeth, as reported by Fluoride Alert.
LED lights are an environmentally friendly lighting solution that is rapidly gaining ground all over the world. Many countries have recognized the need to cut down on energy use to help protect the environment. One example is India, which has recently launched its Domestic Efficient Lighting Program. This initiative involves distributing a total of 770 million LED light bulbs to homes around the nation in an effort to cut down on the amount of energy used for domestic lighting purposes.
All around the world, individuals and businesses are starting to switch to LEDs in order to take advantage of their lower energy consumption and the reduced electricity costs that come with it. In 2011, 40% of domestic lights sold were LEDs. Governments around the world are also choosing to make the switch. 2 million LED luminaires were installed to provide lighting for tunnels and roadways in 2012. Municipal governments in many countries are working together with businesses in the lighting industry to make cities greener with the help of LED lighting solutions for public spaces.
The image illustrates what some call ordinary geological formation but with a very symmetrical and defined shape. According to many, this indicates the presence of an extremely ancient and eroded pyramid.
Hawaii is definitely one of the most beautiful places on the surface of the planet and has attracted tourists because of its unique environment, beautiful beaches, and friendly people. However, after a tourist took images of peculiar structures on one of the islands, people started talking about what appear to be huge Pyramidal structures surrounded by the ocean.
Many people around the globe believe that there are pyramids on every continent on the planet. From Egypt, Mexico, and Asia, these enigmatic ‘monuments’ were developed thousands of years ago for an unknown purpose. According to a hypothesis proposed by author William “Pila” Chiles in his book ‘The Secrets and Mysteries of Hawaii: A Call to the Soul’, the pyramids may have been built on one of the Hawaiian Islands by an ancient culture and share a connection with other pyramids on Earth, through the configuration of a ancient planetary grid.
Hawaii – a place all the world knows as paradise and one of the most remote places on earth — may hold a clue for all humanity during our very defining moment in history. Pila explains why Hawaii is the crossroads of all our mysteries. The Hawaiian people, their legends, and culture, even the location of the islands themselves hold a key that could unlock a giant door and reveal the path to our future. Pila of Hawaii will take you on a journey through time and captivate your soul with the life-transforming power that the islands’ sacred sites, folklore, and myths bring to those who are willing to seek it. Whether you are planning a trip to this tropical paradise or searching for greater insights into your spirit, this book will open you to a world of exquisite beauty and power. –‘The Secrets and Mysteries of Hawaii: A Call to the Soul’
As Chiles writes in his book, the Pyramid –or Pyramids in this case—are located on the Island of Oahu, some five miles from Punaluu, the famous black sand beach.
An image taken by a photographer seems to depict these pyramids. The image illustrates what some call ordinary geological formation but with a very symmetrical and defined shape. According to many, this indicates the presence of an extremely ancient and eroded pyramid. The images of the alleged structures were posted on ‘Exploration Hawaii’ but later taken down for an unknown reason.
Venturing into an even complex hypothesis, Chiles suggests that Hawaii is one of the few places on Earth that still preserve evidence of the existence of the ancient civilization of Atlantis, which is believed to have existed some 13,000 years ago when a catastrophic even wiped out the civilization, creating mass destruction around the globe.
According to many authors, the sheer number of Pyramids found around the globe is the ultimate evidence that an extremely powerful and advanced ancient civilization existed on Earth in the distant past. This ancient civilization is believed to have been the ‘mother civilization’ of all later ancient cultures.
Mainstream scholars, on the other hand, remain convinced that such history never existed and that there never was an advanced civilization before ours.
Author William “Pila” Chiles is firmly convinced that there is a lost Pyramid(S) in Hawaii and points to a study conducted by Lee Ross, an independent researcher who believes that Hawaii is located in a so-called ‘World Grid Node.’
A very important point to consider is that many believe that just as the Nazca Lines, the Pyramids of Giza, the Temple of Angkor Wat, the Pyramids of Hawaii were placed in specific locations around the globe.
Ross’ proposal is based solely on the theory of the Planetary Grid, an intelligent geometric pattern which suggests that our planet and its energy are organized in such a way that ancient cultures build megalithic sites around the globe, harnessing natural energies.
Planetary Grid theorists suggest that grid lines are a naturally energetic and organized network, a source of free and inexhaustible energy, which supplies power to ancient technology of great civilizations like Atlantis. Interestingly, many believe that this technology can be recovered again and used in modern times.
There isn’t doubt that ancient cultures around the globe gave extreme importance to symbols and signs, means by which information and knowledge were encoded in ancient times. Geometry thus assumes a sacred dimension, thanks to which knowledge is transmitted to new generations. But for some experts, Sacred Geometry also had the function of governing invisible forces of nature.
Ancient cultures around the globe easily manipulated the invisible energy of our planet. These ancient cultures were not as primitive as many scholars suggest, in fact, the study of the remote past of humanity reveals how our ancestors were able to combine science and wisdom, intelligence and spirituality, technology and nature. Our modern civilization today is incapable of that since our lifestyle and culture is constantly in contradiction with science, wisdom, intelligence, spirituality, technology and nature.
Researchers need to take a step back and analyze with detail the development of ancient civilizations around the globe. This will allow them to understand how ancient cultures functioned in harmony with the lays of the cosmos and energies around us, and maybe then we will find the answers to the numerous problems mainstream scholars are facing when trying to decipher the past of our species.

As our March 2012 article titled “Pyramids of Glass Submerged in the Bermuda Triangle” continues to go viral after nearly three years, we just received a comment on the article and thought we’d share. It’s coordinates to what appears to be a three-sided pyramid shaped structure in the Bermuda Triangle. (See Below for screenshot)
“Check this coordinates on Google Earth (or Maps): 26.44955066392238, -69.10022079043691 It’s a 3 sides pyramid (20km Area!) at middle of Bermuda Triangle, is marked by a gigantic crux formed by what i guess is tectonic failures, i dare you to find the gigantic crux! Check it quickly before the Censor comes!.” -Jhollman on ApparentlyApparel.com

A controversial documentary that was nearing completion about the central government taking over society. The director and writer of the film David Crowley, 29, was found dead in his apartment in an apparent ‘murder suicide’ along with his wife, Komel, 28, and their 5-year-old daughter on January 18 2015.
The nature of his death has aroused suspicion as many saw no reason to suspect he would do anything like that. A friend said that from the last time they spoke in December his demeanor seemed "contradictory to a man who was about to kill his family and himself." Given the nature of the films Crowley was making it is very strange that he died in the way that he did. The deaths are currently under investigation.
The film was trying to challenge the current world order the monetary system and martial law. The sensitive nature of the subject has led many to believe that this was a plot to suppress the film but the rough cut called "Gray State: The Rise" has been leaked online through multiple sources. Watch it below before it gets taken down again.
The synopsis reads: “The world reels with the turmoil of war, geological disaster, and economic collapse, while Americans continue to submerge themselves in illusions of safety and immunity. While rights are sold for security, the federal government, swollen with power, begins a systematic takeover of liberty in order to bring about a New World Order.
"Fearmongering, terrorism, police state, martial law, war, arrest, internment, hunger, oppression, violence, resistance -- these are the new terms by which Americans define their existence.
"Neighbor is turned against neighbour as the value of the dollar plunges to zero, food supplies are depleted, and everyone is a terror suspect. There are arrests. Disappearances. Bio attacks. Even rumors of concentration camps on American soil.”
The Star Tribune reported that: “Several neighbors said they thought Crowley may have been a military or ex-military member, and that he had close-cropped hair and tattoos. One neighbor said he thought Crowley worked at home doing screenwriting of some kind, and that his wife worked as a dietician.”
The documentary is an incendiary look at the state of the world and it highlights all of the issues that we face as a society, the power of information is the most useful tool for us all to use. If you agree with anything that is said in the documentary please share this article or download the video above courtesy of Apparently Apparel.
(AA) 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 and Ice Age Civilizations, by James Nienhuis. 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.

Contrary to popular belief, Nikola Tesla did not die penniless or poor. He was heavily subsidized meaning he received money from the U.S. Government for his expenses. Much mystery still surrounds his death, some going as far as suggesting he was murdered. He died during WWII in 1943 and about two years later (after they finally figured out all his technology) the US military industrial complex succeeded in becoming the number one global superpower. Coincidence? We think not.
Moving on, Dr. Puharich reveals rare details about the life and work of his fellow Serbo-Croatian-American scientist including how it was rumored that Tesla was castrated at a young age to remain pure and other interesting things you may have never heard.
