Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
At a small waterfront facility just outside Palm Beach, Florida, engineers have developed a 10-foot unmanned submarine named Marlin that uses sonar and other technologies developed for the U.S. military to inspect off-shore oil rigs in far less time and at lower cost than current systems.

The bright yellow unmanned undersea vehicle was tested last summer in the Gulf of Mexico at a facility owned by Chevron (CVX.N), generating detailed three-dimensional data that have piqued a great deal of interest in the industry.

A Lockheed crew is back in the area off Louisiana this week, where Marlin is surveying a number of offshore platforms owned by a big oil firm, generating the first commercial revenues for this small arm of Lockheed. Lockheed did not name the oil firm.

The project, first initiated in mid-2009, reflects growing efforts by big weapons makers like Lockheed to find revenues in adjacent markets as they brace for weaker defense spending in the United States and Europe after a decade of strong growth.

Quote
"Rich Holmberg, vice president of Lockheed's mission and unmanned systems unit in Florida, sees bright prospects for the Marlin vehicle, given the huge and growing number of offshore oil and gas platforms in the Gulf and elsewhere; growing calls for increase regulation after the 2010 BP (BP.L) oil spill; and increased investment in offshore wind energy.

"We're kind of bullish," Holmberg told Reuters in a glass-walled conference room overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and several of the company's smaller research and support ships.

Holmberg, who previously headed Lockheed's naval helicopter programs, declined to estimate future possible sales or the per unit price, but said Lockheed believed it was the only company with the full set of capabilities offered by the Marlin vehicle at the moment.

The mission and unmanned systems unit has historically been more of a research house, like Lockheed's famous Skunk Works aeronautics development shop, which has earned it the nickname "Squid Works," but it is ramping up for a higher profile.

While other parts of Lockheed are laying off workers, Holmberg's unit has filled 130 positions over the past 18 months, bringing its workforce to 430 people to deal with demand for Marlin and complete work on several U.S. Navy programs, including a remote mine-hunting system for coastal warships.

It also just opened an office in Houston, home of the oil and gas industry, to step up marketing of the Marlin vehicle".

snip

Marillyn Hewson now heads the electronic systems division which oversees Holmberg's unit but is moving up to become Lockheed's president and chief operating officer in January.

She told Reuters in June that Lockheed saw great opportunities for company's unmanned capabilities in the air, at sea and on land, including the autonomous Marlin vehicle.

The new system can be programmed to autonomously survey an underwater object, and detect any changes. It then generates three-dimensional models that oil and gas companies can use to lower their high inspection costs.

Currently, oil and gas companies do inspections using divers and remotely operated, but tethered undersea vehicles that provide less detailed video images.

Marlin could simplify those efforts since it is able to complete inspections in far less time -- mapping a 135-foot platform in 27 minutes -- and can be launched from a smaller ship, reducing fuel costs.

"These systems enable those companies to do more inspections more efficiently so they get better inspections and more inspections for about the same cost as their current inspections," Holmberg said.

Industry data shows there are over 3,800 offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, over 40,000 miles of underwater pipeline, and an estimated 12,000 capped wells -- all of which are subject to various government inspection requirements.

Holmberg said Lockheed is still developing its business model for the new venture, but plans to both sell the unmanned submarines, and to team up with service companies serving North America, the North Sea, Brazil and even the Arctic.

Marlin is currently able to dive to 1,000 feet below the surface, but Lockheed is working on a variant that would be able to service deep water platforms by diving to 12,000 feet, according to Dan McLeod, the creator of the Marlin program.

The company is also working with a subcontractor to integrate a three-dimensional laser that could improve the data gathered by Marlin. It is also exploring systems that would remain under the water but could be turned on when needed.

Really.

An anti-WikiLeaks hacking group has taken credit for launching a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack against the Russian news site RT.com.

The organization, which calls itself Anti Leaks, today tweeted out to followers that it was "behind the DDoS attack on RT.com." Although the organization didn't explicitly say why it decided to attack RT, it included in its tweet a "#FreePussyRiot" hashtag.

The hashtag refers to the name of a Russian, all-female punk rock band. The band members were arrested in March after performing a "punk prayer" in Moscow's main cathedral, requesting the Virgin Mary save Russia from president Vladimir Putin. A judge today sentenced all three members to two years in prison for their dissent.

The arrest and subsequent sentencing has lit a firestorm across the world over individual rights in Russia. Anti Leaks has come out in support of the band.

For its part, RT has confirmed that its site "went down for hours worldwide" today. The site is now back up and running, and the news service has posted a story pointing to Anti Leaks' admission.

Anti Leaks is one of the newer hacking groups to come on a scene popularized by Anonymous. However, unlike Anonymous, which has in the past expressed support for WikiLeaks, Anti Leaks has spoken out against the organization and launched a DDoS attack on the site earlier this month.

"Tango down wikileaks.org," the company wrote on Twitter on August 3.

WikiLeaks condemned the attack on RT today, saying that the news outlet "is an important alternative voice in the west."

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
NEWPORT, R.I. — Just beneath the placid, sailboat-dotted surface of Narragansett Bay, torpedo-shaped vehicles spin and pivot to their own rhythm, carrying out missions programmed by their U.S. Navy masters.

The Navy is working toward its goal of achieving a squadron of self-driven, undersea vehicles.

Technology under consideration by the military is often tested aboard cylinder-shaped vehicles with a diameter of about 20 inches. But the center also tests its own prototypes, including one dubbed Razor, which can propel itself by using flippers, like a turtle, for stealth.

The Navy hopes its drones will eventually pilot themselves across oceans. The vehicles are already used to detect mines and map the ocean floor and, with tweaks over the next several years, the military says they will be applied more to intelligence gathering and, in the more distant future, anti-submarine warfare.

"We do see these autonomous undersea vehicles as game changers," said Christopher Egan, a program manager at NUWC.

[SNIP]

What game?



Compared with aerial drones, the undersea vehicles can be challenging to control from a distance. The water distorts the transmission of signals, and the drones have to contend with boat traffic, swirling currents and obstacles on the ocean floor.

They are typically powered by batteries, but their endurance has been sharply limited by the lack of a stronger power source that will allow for safe handling by sailors who deploy and collect the devices aboard submarines.

With advances in alternative energy sources, particularly fuel cells, the Navy says it is close to achieving a fully independent drone. By 2017, the Navy aims to have a large, unmanned vehicle that can stay out for 70 days. Within the next decade, it wants to field its first full squadron.

Whether they deliver on their promise, he said, will depend on success at finding the right power plant.

"The big obstacle is going to be energy," he said. "I don't get the feeling anyone has jumped up and said this is not a problem anymore."

The U.S. shale oil revolution can't be stopped, but it could be delayed by a potential shortfall of 10-ton valves and giant pipeline pumps essential for rebalancing markets upended by the surge in production.

SNIP

Valves eh? Who in this story is a producer of large oil valves? Seimens wasnt it? Also able to be infected by a particular virus..

SNIP

Amid an unanticipated boom in inland oil output that turned the domestic market upside down last year, firms from Enterprise Products Partners to Shell Pipeline and Plains All American have launched a $20 billion bonanza to build, expand or reverse two dozen pipelines in the past year.

But as they help effectively to switch the flow of oil from the north to southern refineries and relieve the glut of cut-price, landlocked crude, concerns are growing that the firms that make key pipeline components may be straining to keep pace.

"The supply chain hasn't quite caught up," said Terry McGill, president of Enbridge Energy Co Inc, the U.S. division of Canadian pipeline giant Enbridge Inc, which has some $4 billion worth of U.S. projects on the books.

Thus far, there are no signs of project delays or cost overruns in what is the biggest build-out of oil and liquid pipelines since World War II.

SNIP

- so is it about money, or a scam to destabilise the land base of the US? and flood the continent with negativity.






Just on that. Amazing how 'we' go from emotions/nature back to technology and machines and war.

I'm guilty of it.

Did you know?

Railroads were the first large scale transporters of goods and services, [a side from shipping] and hence were given many additional charters to manage, due to their close involvement with so many industries, and their ability to quickly get from point A to point B.

Industries like mining went hand in hand, as the rail networks needed the raw materials to initially build themselves in order to take the minerals away eventually, for other industries.

Same for telecommunications. The telegraph followed the path of railroads as the initial concept was to not even put up wires, but use the actual rails as the network.
This is a little known fact, even today. Controlled and monitored eventually by constructing seperate wire carriers, also driven by copper mining, and more railroads.

Anything deemed a 'carrier' was eventually managed or supervised by these commissions. Fingers in every pie. The wealth generated was enormous - for a few.

Look at this pic. This is how oil used to be transported about. In tanks, on massively long trains.


IMAGE ( [link to i824.photobucket.com] )


But someone had a great idea. Instead of making longer and longer trains, why not join all the tanks together from A to B as a long pipeline.

The birth of oil pipelines.

February 20, 1917 Pipelines declared 'common carriers'. The Commission given jurisdiction over them. The responsibility to check and regulate maintenance is also part of the charter.

So, a rail road commission is responsible for the charter managing oil and gas production, including waste materials, including BRINE, which I am hoping you all get by now is a direct result of an oil find being translated in to an OIL RESERVE.

Who manages brine from oil and gass production the US over?

The Rail Road Commission of Texas.

Where does all that brine go? What is it used for?

THAT is a good question.

"Gold From the Sea", a web page at [link to www.goldfever.com] addresses the issue and includes a bibliography with 27 references. Good luck with it, Anna.

My wild guess based on hints in the literature is that a microbe or nanomachine will be engineered which can bioaccumulate gold. If such a creature could concentrate gold even to 1 ppm, that would make the concept a hundred times more practical; if it could concentrate gold to 100 ppm it would be 10,000 times more concentrated than seawater. We live at the cusps of genetic and micromachine revolution, so I think it will happen.

 Quoting: Ted Mooney, finishing.com


Have a read of the above link, plus this one -

[link to www.finishing.com]

Speaking in simple terms.

If we know that applying A to B results in C, then in many circumstances, taking C from B will yield A.

Make sense?

If a nano bot or engineered lifeform was developed to undertake a specific job, but an unexpected 'input' [such as a charged submarine, covered in D.D] made that lifeform mutate and produce nano gold from sea water, further unravelling the DNA of the created lifeform and reprogramming it, creating a self perpetuating cascade event.

Couple that with an endless supply of energy to keep the process flowing.

As a completely alien life form, anything it does would be considered terraforming 'its' environment. The area it lives in is being changed by it.

But does it have any intent behind it? Is it sentient? Or is it simply a cascading reaction?

Given the failure to contain said cascade, could 'others' step in to attempt to change its course, via. technologies curently outside our realm of understanding, including contact with entities greater than we can imagine, including planetary conciousnes, and ask for help?

I have a few theories I'm working on at present, this being one in the vein (vane LOL) of the original storyline.

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
There are a few other threads that have become quite synchronistic regards information here.

This one is going to be really good I think -

Thread: Egypt - SECRETS FOUND - NEW DISCOVERIES THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND

Whilst its fresh in my head, and following the 'creationary water theme, a comment made by that OP regarding pumps, and structures in ancient Egypt caught my eye.

Never been a proponent of the "pyramids are pumps" idea. Why spend so much time, effort, life and material to simply create a pump to move water? So many better, more efficient, smaller ways to achieve this.

That OP mentioned a particular temple was flooded NOT by Nile water, and it gave me goosebumps......

Okaaaaay OP, you got my head in a spin.

For years I've always winced when I read the pyramids were used as pumps. Such an elaborate structure, to simply pump water for agriculture/consumption, when far more efficient and smaller devices could do similar tasks.

But your statement of 'flooded not by Nile water' - gave me chills.

I hang out on a thread called Bezerk. It's epic. Some of my conclusions there centre around our 'water' world creating a particular type of fluid/water, that is laden with intent. I refer to it as creationary water.

I could easily see an entire pyramid or other monolithic transducer being created to draw and extract this liquid up, as it would be so valuable in its uses for litterally creating life, where before, there was none. Even re-animate dead objects.

Synchronicity is an amazing thing.

Thanks! hf

 Quoting: BadHairDay


Now where have we heard that before? Reanimated dead objects? Terracotta armies anyone? Made with intent - just add water....

And couple the pump idea, used to extract or encourage specific types of water in to a small chamber, and then 'flavouring' that water with the Pyramid's main function, to transduce signals from space, and focus them in one or more of the chambers.

Life one end, could be transported and re-animated at the other with this liquid.

The mummies are bone dry. What left them? WATER.

Haha, this is a pretty cool idea. No?

I'll keep it going. The Maya, where did they all go? They also built pyramids.

So did the Chinese, and the Africans. The Australian Aborigine marked the places of intent with giant spirals. Maybe their techniques were different.

Hurricane Isaac 'drove Mississippi River backwards'

The storm surge ahead of Hurricane Isaac made the Mississippi River run backwards for 24 hours.

US Geological Survey (USGS) instruments at Belle Chasse in Louisiana recorded the flow of the river, finding it running in reverse on Tuesday.

The flow reached nearly 5,200 cubic metres per second (182,000 cubic feet per second) upriver, with a height of nearly 3m (10ft) above average.

Normal flow is about 3,540 cubic metres per second in the opposite direction.

But in rare cases, strong winds and the waves that they create can drive water up the mouths of coastal rivers.

As the hurricane carried on across land, instruments from the USGS' national network at Baton Rouge, Louisiana - 150km (100mi) upriver - recorded a 2.5m (8ft) rise above normal height.

"This reversal of flow of the mighty Mississippi is but one measure of the extreme force of Isaac," said USGS director Marcia McNutt.

"While such events are ephemeral, they are yet another reminder of why we need to respect hurricane warnings."

The reversal of flow on the Mississippi - the world's fourth-longest river - has been seen before, notably during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when the river reached a height of 4m (13ft) above normal.

But it is not just extreme weather that can cause the effect; an earthquake near the New Madrid fault in Missouri in 1812 also reversed the river's flow for several hours.

[link to www.bbc.co.uk]


Hmmm, how about Issac was directed [here] to create this impression [of a salt laden river] as they released tonnes of salt from the ruptured salt domes up river?

How about the river was sucked in to collapsing domes and in to an area in the new Madrid fault line? (just like Lake Peigneur) The river there also flowed the wrong way for a while, and Lake Peigneur is now a salt water lake as a result of the collapse.

How about dem apples?

Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
At a small waterfront facility just outside Palm Beach, Florida, engineers have developed a 10-foot unmanned submarine named Marlin that uses sonar and other technologies developed for the U.S. military to inspect off-shore oil rigs in far less time and at lower cost than current systems.

The bright yellow unmanned undersea vehicle was tested last summer in the Gulf of Mexico at a facility owned by Chevron (CVX.N), generating detailed three-dimensional data that have piqued a great deal of interest in the industry.

A Lockheed crew is back in the area off Louisiana this week, where Marlin is surveying a number of offshore platforms owned by a big oil firm, generating the first commercial revenues for this small arm of Lockheed. Lockheed did not name the oil firm.

The project, first initiated in mid-2009, reflects growing efforts by big weapons makers like Lockheed to find revenues in adjacent markets as they brace for weaker defense spending in the United States and Europe after a decade of strong growth.

"Rich Holmberg, vice president of Lockheed's mission and unmanned systems unit in Florida, sees bright prospects for the Marlin vehicle, given the huge and growing number of offshore oil and gas platforms in the Gulf and elsewhere; growing calls for increase regulation after the 2010 BP (BP.L) oil spill; and increased investment in offshore wind energy.

"We're kind of bullish," Holmberg told Reuters in a glass-walled conference room overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway and several of the company's smaller research and support ships.

Holmberg, who previously headed Lockheed's naval helicopter programs, declined to estimate future possible sales or the per unit price, but said Lockheed believed it was the only company with the full set of capabilities offered by the Marlin vehicle at the moment.

The mission and unmanned systems unit has historically been more of a research house, like Lockheed's famous Skunk Works aeronautics development shop, which has earned it the nickname "Squid Works," but it is ramping up for a higher profile.

While other parts of Lockheed are laying off workers, Holmberg's unit has filled 130 positions over the past 18 months, bringing its workforce to 430 people to deal with demand for Marlin and complete work on several U.S. Navy programs, including a remote mine-hunting system for coastal warships.

It also just opened an office in Houston, home of the oil and gas industry, to step up marketing of the Marlin vehicle".

Marillyn Hewson now heads the electronic systems division which oversees Holmberg's unit but is moving up to become Lockheed's president and chief operating officer in January.

She told Reuters in June that Lockheed saw great opportunities for company's unmanned capabilities in the air, at sea and on land, including the autonomous Marlin vehicle.

The new system can be programmed to autonomously survey an underwater object, and detect any changes. It then generates three-dimensional models that oil and gas companies can use to lower their high inspection costs.

Currently, oil and gas companies do inspections using divers and remotely operated, but tethered undersea vehicles that provide less detailed video images.

Marlin could simplify those efforts since it is able to complete inspections in far less time -- mapping a 135-foot platform in 27 minutes -- and can be launched from a smaller ship, reducing fuel costs.

"These systems enable those companies to do more inspections more efficiently so they get better inspections and more inspections for about the same cost as their current inspections," Holmberg said.

Industry data shows there are over 3,800 offshore platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, over 40,000 miles of underwater pipeline, and an estimated 12,000 capped wells -- all of which are subject to various government inspection requirements.

Holmberg said Lockheed is still developing its business model for the new venture, but plans to both sell the unmanned submarines, and to team up with service companies serving North America, the North Sea, Brazil and even the Arctic.

Marlin is currently able to dive to 1,000 feet below the surface, but Lockheed is working on a variant that would be able to service deep water platforms by diving to 12,000 feet, according to Dan McLeod, the creator of the Marlin program.

The company is also working with a subcontractor to integrate a three-dimensional laser that could improve the data gathered by Marlin. It is also exploring systems that would remain under the water but could be turned on when needed.

Really.

Did you know?

Railroads were the first large scale transporters of goods and services, [a side from shipping] and hence were given many additional charters to manage, due to their close involvement with so many industries, and their ability to quickly get from point A to point B.

Industries like mining went hand in hand, as the rail networks needed the raw materials to initially build themselves in order to take the minerals away eventually, for other industries.

Same for telecommunications. The telegraph followed the path of railroads as the initial concept was to not even put up wires, but use the actual rails as the network.
This is a little known fact, even today. Controlled and monitored eventually by constructing seperate wire carriers, also driven by copper mining, and more railroads.

Anything deemed a 'carrier' was eventually managed or supervised by these commissions. Fingers in every pie. The wealth generated was enormous - for a few.

Look at this pic. This is how oil used to be transported about. In tanks, on massively long trains.

But someone had a great idea. Instead of making longer and longer trains, why not join all the tanks together from A to B as a long pipeline.

The birth of oil pipelines.

February 20, 1917 Pipelines declared 'common carriers'. The Commission given jurisdiction over them. The responsibility to check and regulate maintenance is also part of the charter.

So, a rail road commission is responsible for the charter managing oil and gas production, including waste materials, including BRINE, which I am hoping you all get by now is a direct result of an oil find being translated in to an OIL RESERVE.

Who manages brine from oil and gass production the US over?

The Rail Road Commission of Texas.

Where does all that brine go? What is it used for?

THAT is a good question.

Hurricane Isaac 'drove Mississippi River backwards'

The storm surge ahead of Hurricane Isaac made the Mississippi River run backwards for 24 hours.

US Geological Survey (USGS) instruments at Belle Chasse in Louisiana recorded the flow of the river, finding it running in reverse on Tuesday.

The flow reached nearly 5,200 cubic metres per second (182,000 cubic feet per second) upriver, with a height of nearly 3m (10ft) above average.

Normal flow is about 3,540 cubic metres per second in the opposite direction.

But in rare cases, strong winds and the waves that they create can drive water up the mouths of coastal rivers.

As the hurricane carried on across land, instruments from the USGS' national network at Baton Rouge, Louisiana - 150km (100mi) upriver - recorded a 2.5m (8ft) rise above normal height.

"This reversal of flow of the mighty Mississippi is but one measure of the extreme force of Isaac," said USGS director Marcia McNutt.

"While such events are ephemeral, they are yet another reminder of why we need to respect hurricane warnings."

The reversal of flow on the Mississippi - the world's fourth-longest river - has been seen before, notably during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, when the river reached a height of 4m (13ft) above normal.

But it is not just extreme weather that can cause the effect; an earthquake near the New Madrid fault in Missouri in 1812 also reversed the river's flow for several hours.

Hmmm, how about Issac was directed [here] to create this impression [of a salt laden river] as they released tonnes of salt from the ruptured salt domes up river?

How about the river was sucked in to collapsing domes and in to an area in the new Madrid fault line? (just like Lake Peigneur) The river there also flowed the wrong way for a while, and Lake Peigneur is now a salt water lake as a result of the collapse.

How about dem apples?

Study Suggests Large Methane Reservoirs Beneath Antarctic Ice Sheet


The Antarctic Ice Sheet could be an overlooked but important source of methane, a potent greenhouse gas, according to a report in the August 30 issue of Nature by an international team of scientists. The new study demonstrates that old organic matter in sedimentary basins located beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet may have been converted to methane by micro-organisms living under oxygen-deprived conditions.

Some folks mentally translate from German.

Hans, I appreciate your comeback. Very good!

Your uptake on Southern colloquial phrases has improved considerably since the time you started posting on the thread.

I could not perform well translating into German.
