"Solar Eruption, Water Mystery" - "Ben Davidson Exposed" - "6/19/2014 Big Sioux River...Record Flood"
Today's daily alternative news report is an interesting one featuring four different videos uploaded within the last 24hrs. (Part 1 of the video "Ben Davidson Exposed" was actually uploaded in May, but part 2 was just uploaded)
We've found a two-part video by Solar Astrophysicist Dr. Keith Strong (drkstrong) who exposes the Youtuber known as "Suspicious0bservers" aka Ben Davidson. Ben is the one who makes the videos we share each morning, while we've been following Dr. Strong for some time because he too reports on solar activity.. The information presented in Ben's videos is imperative, however Ben's agenda behind posting the videos remains questionable.
Dr. Strong explains the reasons behind this, and more, in today's daily alternative news report.

(AA) January 1 marked a high point for Colorado’s Amendment 64 — the first day recreational marijuana businesses can legally operate in the state. A little more than a year after Colorado passed its ballot initiative to legalize recreational marijuana, individuals can for the first time sell, produce, and purchase marijuana legally, even without a doctor’s prescription. But to both those eager to light up and those fearful of the consequences, it is worth remembering that there remain more restrictions on the marijuana industry than there are allowances, which proponents hope will better control the health and safety of the industry. With Colorado’s law, federal law, and local law all affecting regulation, here are some key facts about Wednesday’s roll-out:
In-state residents can only buy an ounce at a time. Out-of-staters are limited to 1/4 ounce.
You can’t smoke in public, especially not on federal property.As with alcohol, you must be 21 or older to buy marijuana in Colorado. And if you’re a Coloradan, you can’t buy more than an ounce in a single transaction — the equivalent of about 60 joints. Out-of-state residents, however, can only buy a quarter of an ounce. This is because the state wants to give those individuals only enough to use while they’re visiting, and deter them from taking pot back to their state, where marijuana is almost certainly more restricted. There’snothing explicit in the law, however, preventing consumersfrom making two purchases in a day, aside from the fact that it limits possession to one ounce, and the cost. A full ounce costs from $150 to $300 in the medical marijuana market. Recreational prices could be even higher, particularly once sellers add on the 25 percent tax approved by Colorado voters.
You can grow your own pot, but you can’t sell it if you’re not licensed by the state.
While marijuana purchase and possession of up to an ounce are legalized, public display and consumption are not. You can’t smoke marijuana in the street, but you also can’t smoke it at any bars, clubs, or even at a marijuana store. While public smoking is prohibited, the state penalty is considered a petty offense carrying a penalty of $100 fine or up to 15 days in jail. Federal prosecution could subject you to a much greater penalty, however, particularly for those smoking on public property. Possession of marijuana on federal land is punishable by up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine. After the Washington and Colorado ballot initiatives were passed, the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Seattle issued a statement reminding that “it remains against federal law to bring any amount of marijuana onto federal property, including all federal buildings, national parks and forests, military installations, and courthouses.”
You can’t take marijuana out of the state.
The major component of Colorado’s law that goes into effect January 1 is the licensing and oversight of the marijuana industry. Those wishing to sell or produce marijuana applied to the state for a license. In the first round, only those already operating as medical marijuana dispensaries were considered. And out of more than 500 medical dispensaries, only 136 are now also authorized to sell recreational marijuana without a doctor’s recommendation — so long as they comply with the state’s extensive testing and state oversight rules to ensure the safety of the product. Those wishing to consume pot in the state can either grow their own — up to six plants — or they can buy it at a licensed dispensary. But if they want to share it with their friends, no money should change hands, since nobody without a license is permitted to sell pot, even through hand-to-hand transactions.
Recreational marijuana is only legal in Colorado and Washington.
So once you leave the Colorado border, you are entering territory with another, more restrictive state marijuana law. Surrounding states including Kansas andWyoming have already seen increasing busts of marijuana near the borders after the passage of the ballot initiative last year legalized possession. And one of the major concerns of the federal government that could change their hands-off approach to marijuana is the interstate transport of pot. So while the feds may steer clear of prosecuting state-compliant Colorado dispensaries for now, they may get more aggressive about prosecuting even small-time marijuana offenses at the state border.
You may have to travel a long way to find a legal dispensary.
Federal authorities are cracking down hard on the bad actors. Colorado voters overwhelmingly approved the marijuana legalization ballot initiative, but that doesn’t mean the localities want dispensaries in their own jurisdiction. As of September,more than 100 localities had banned dispensaries or imposed a moratorium, including most of the ten largest cities in Colorado. In fact, out of 136 dispensaries that received state licenses to sell recreational marijuana, 102 are in Denver. So while possession remains legal everywhere, finding a legal place for purchase will be a significant burden in some parts of the state, potentially increasing the likelihood that some will violate the state law.
Marijuana remains illegal under federal law. And for years, to the dismay of the medical marijuana community, federal authorities continued to go after state dispensaries seemingly in compliance with state laws. But this past November, they conducted a raid that seemed aimed solely at those violating or exploiting the state’s medical marijuana law, and seemingly had the support even of the medical marijuana community. In fact, as Sam Kamin and Joel Westword explained recently in Slate, the state is going to need all the help it can get tracking the plant from seed to sale, and enforcing its own scheme of regulation. So while the feds may look the other way as those complying with Colorado law violate the Controlled Substances Act, those violating the new Colorado law may find themselves even more susceptible to punishment by state and federal authorities.
Medical marijuana patients will have increased access.
Colorado already has a medical marijuana law that allows those with a doctor’s approval to buy pot from state dispensaries. But the law doesn’t help everybody. Some medical conditions are not covered by the law, meaning a doctor can’t prescribe marijuana for those ailments. And some may not have taken advantage simply because they are embarrassed to ask their doctor for a recommendation. Under the new law, all of these folks have access. In fact, the first official patient scheduled to purchase marijuana Wednesday morning was an Iraq War veteran who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, a condition that is not covered by the state’s medical marijuana law.
When it comes to the UFO side of the paranormal, there tends to be quite a few more documented cases than say, unwanted hauntings or sightings of Bigfoot.
Located on the beautiful Hamakua coast of the Big Island, lives the infamous video-makers named Blake and Brent Cousins, more commonly known as Third Phase of Moon. This "company" has been faking UFO videos for over ten years, contributing to the surmounting discrepancies within the UFO communities, rather than helping find the solutions.
These two are also the creators of "The Night Marchers" movie, a movie demonizing a local Hawaiian legend and making it out to be another "Blair Witch" type movie. A quick Google search reveals at least Blake is an aspiring "actor", with an active listing on the IMDB database. So he's an actor. . .There's our first hint.
Perhaps the ease of which a person can create a believable UFO video nowadays is partly to blame. Better computer technology and software programs like Final Cut or Adobe Premier Pro translates to more fake hoax videos coming forward, most with the hopes of becoming the next "viral-video", especially when a paycheck is involved.
But when it comes to outright faking videos for a profit, when does it start to cross some sort of moral boundary line?
Question: If I was to spend my time creating fake ghost videos and submitting them around the world as authentic, making a bunch of money from revenue clicks on Youtube, how would that make you feel? Satisfied or Scammed?
Again, this ongoing investigation is an attempt at getting to the bottom of the situation. This isn't necessarily a politically correct subject. If we don't do it, who will? It's our obligation as the Big Island's premier paranormal investigators to investigate a possible case of UFO hoaxing right in our own backyard.
After investigating and doing some homework, the time is long overdue for these two to be exposed for what they have been doing. Other researchers around the world have caught on to their schemes, and some have gone so far to debunk some of their videos, calling them out in front of thousands of viewers.
Great Pyramids of.... Antarctica?
Contributed by Zach Royer
(AA) 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]
Consumers are dying today in part because they continue to eat dead foods that are killed in the microwave. They take a perfectly healthy piece of raw food, loaded with vitamins and natural medicines, then nuke it in the microwave and destroy most of its nutrition. Humans are the only animals on the planet who destroy the nutritional value of their food before eating it. All other animals consume food in its natural, unprocessed state, but humans actually go out of their way to render food nutritionally worthless before eating it. No wonder humans are the least healthy mammals on the planet.
In Russia, microwave ovens were banned in 1976 because of their negative health consequences as many studies were conducted on their use. The ban was lifted after Perestroika in the early 90’s. Numerous documents can be found online relating to this subject.
The invention of the microwave and its mass adoption by the population coincides with the onset of obesity in developed nations around the world. Not only did the microwave make it convenient to eat more obesity-promoting foods, it also destroyed much of the nutritional content of those foods, leaving consumers in an ongoing state of malnourished overfeeding. In other words, people eat too many calories but not enough real nutrition. The result is, of course, what we see today: Epidemic rates of diabetes, cancer, heart disease, depression, kidney failure, liver disorders and much more.
These diseases are all caused by a combination of malnutrition and exposure to toxic chemicals (plus other factors such as emotional trauma, lack of exercise, etc.). Microwaves make malnutrition virtually automatic, and being exposed to toxic chemicals is easy to accomplish by simply eating processed foods (which are universally manufactured with the addition of toxic chemicals that act as preservatives, colorings, flavor enhancers and so on).
