Re: F.O.G.
Something to remember:This was from January of this year, and where i believed it would all begin......


The chance of a big earthquake hitting the Japanese capital in the next few years is much greater than official predictions suggest, researchers say.

The team, from the University of Tokyo, said there was a 75% probability that a magnitude seven quake would strike the region in the next four years.

The government says the chances of such an event are 70% in the next 30 years.

The warning comes less than a year after a massive earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan's north-eastern coast.

The last time Tokyo was hit by a big earthquake was in 1923, when a 7.9 magnitude quake killed more than 100,000 people, many of them in fires.

Look for alot of weather extremes to rise in the next several months. They are only giving us scraps, also, things are are worse than this article points out as we have a polar anomaly occuring thats going to produce sporadic temperature flux in the next 4 weeks.

The sun has reacted dramatically over the last three days to our backside energy source. I believe we have alot to keep track of!

The North Pole is shrinking but the South is growing. This will make Earth bottom heaven like a child's toy top. When the bottom is overly heavy, won't this make the "wobble effect" much more pronounced?? You know, like the moon not seeming in the right place, the sun not right either, more EQ's especially in odd places - what is the word that is used in the Good book - diverse places??

Hi everyone!

Good to see you Gabe and Shad and all the rest of the lovely F.O.G. family. I've been busy here in So. Calif - in Palm Springs now. Hey, if you guys are interested, check out The Hollywood Museum, Me-TV and Turner Classic Movies web sites for the tributes we've arranged for Loretta Young - aka "Mom"! Its crazy busy, but lurking here when possible to see what's going down! Its funny to 'miss' your GLP friends, I was thinking about Shad and Gabe yesterday, wondering if they were okay! So happy to see them post tonight. :-)

Thanks everyone, through your contributions, we're able to experience and anticipate our earth changes together.

Much love & holiday greetings!

Re: F.O.G.
CHANCE OF STORMS: NOAA forecasters estimate a 10% to 20% chance of polar geomagnetic storms on Dec. 24th in response to a CIR or "corotating interaction region." A CIR is a boundary between fast- and slow-moving streams in the solar wind. Crossing a CIR, as Earth will do on Christmas Eve, can spark magnetic storms and auroras.

FARSIDE ERUPTION: No strong flares have issued from the sun in weeks, but solar activity might not be as low as it seems. The farside of the sun is increasingly restless. On Dec. 21st, multiple CMEs flew over the edge of the solar disk, and today NASA's STEREO-A spacecraft observed a filament erupting on the farside.
[link to spaceweather.com]
This activity suggests that the long-term forecast could be stormy. In one to two weeks, active regions currently on the farside will turn toward Earth, possibly sending some flares and CMEs our way.

SOLAR SPACE TELESCOPE SEES EARTH:
NASA's STEREO-B spacecraft can now see our home planet in its HI1 telescope. HI stands for "Heliospheric Imager." The telescope is designed to track gusts of solar wind and solar storms all the way from the sun to Earth. This image, captured on Dec. 17th, shows Earth and the edge of the sun's corona in a single snapshot:
[link to spaceweather.com]
Earth is moving into the Heliospheric Imager's field of view because the twin STEREO probes are moving around the farside of the sun, which gives them a better view of the sun-Earth system: diagram. Soon Earth will be visible in STEREO-A's HI1 telescope and eventually in the coronagraphs as well.

The STEREO probes have two wider-field heliospheric imagers, too: HI2-A and HI2-B. Earth has been visible in the HI2 telescopes since launch in 2007, but this is the first time our planet has been visible in either of the HI1 telescopes, which can see regions of space closer to the sun. This development will give researchers a better view of solar storms engulfing Earth and could lead to improvements in space weather forecasting.

In the News: Army teams going to Africa as terror threat grows
By By LOLITA C. BALDOR | Associated Press – 6 hrs ago

WASHINGTON (AP) — A U.S. Army brigade will begin sending small teams into as many as 35 African nations early next year, part of an intensifying Pentagon effort to train countries to battle extremists and give the U.S. a ready and trained force to dispatch to Africa if crises requiring the U.S. military emerge.

The teams will be limited to training and equipping efforts, and will not be permitted to conduct military operations without specific, additional approvals from the secretary of defense.

The sharper focus on Africa by the U.S. comes against a backdrop of widespread insurgent violence across North Africa, and as the African Union and other nations discuss military intervention in northern Mali.

"If they want them for (military) operations, the brigade is our first sourcing solution because they're prepared," said Gen. David Rodriguez, the head of U.S. Army Forces Command. "But that has to go back to the secretary of defense to get an execute order."

"What's really exciting is we get to focus on a different part of the world and maintain our core combat skills," Broadwater said, adding that the soldiers know what to expect. "You see those threats (in Africa) in the news all the time."

The brigade will be carved up into different teams designed to meet the specific needs of each African nation. As the year goes on, the teams will travel from Fort Riley to those nations — all while trying to avoid any appearance of a large U.S. military footprint.

"The challenge we have is to always understand the system in their country," said Rodriguez, who has been nominated to be the next head of Africa Command. "We're not there to show them our system, we're there to make their system work. Here is what their army looks like, and here is what we need to prepare them to do."

Rodriguez said the nearly 100 assignments so far requested by Ham will be carried out with "a very small footprint to get the high payoff."

Wondering why they claim it will happen starting "as early as next year". I know someone who is in the National Guard and part of his unit was sent back in August and I saw where he posted last week another group was being sent right before Christmas. He thinks he will have to go before spring. I asked why Africa and he said support. I wondered then support for what??? I am with you on the "ahum".

The farside as nin noted last week was having a magnetic storm almost across the entire eastern side. It was something I hadn't seen before and we've been waiting to see if it would spread or slide around to earthside. It looks like it hasn't. Our energy drawing anomaly is still present backside as the energy refuses to transfer. This is actually becoming more of a phenom. Its amazing that this has been going on for 7 months and Nasa hasn't even tried to explain it,while most followers and tempolar scientist are all talking about it

When I awoke this morning, my son was here and busy putting things in order. He told me that this area's gas stations are all closed. I'm wondering if that is occurring elsewhere as well. With the holidays recognized on Mondays, a lot of services are closed today, especially gas stations. If folks thought to last minute shop, but forgot to gas up on Sunday. Well, they are gonna find themselves stranded in rural areas without gas for their autos. And, I wonder if those gas stations will be open tomorrow, but I'm thinking since it is Christmas Day that it is unlikely that they will be. So, this recognized Monday holiday time off is good to extend time off work, but bad if it wasn't planned for. Hope everyone got what they needed and is able to spend the holidays with their loved ones.

With the holidays recognized on Mondays, a lot of services are closed today, especially gas stations. If folks thought to last minute shop, but forgot to gas up on Sunday. Well, they are gonna find themselves stranded in rural areas without gas for their autos. And, I wonder if those gas stations will be open tomorrow, but I'm thinking since it is Christmas Day that it is unlikely that they will be. So, this recognized Monday holiday time off is good to extend time off work, but bad if it wasn't planned for. Hope everyone got what they needed and is able to spend the holidays with their loved ones.

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” – Carl Sagan
