New Antarctic sea ice record — but scientists aren’t ‘confounded’

The Conversation, James Whitmore, 15 September 2014

Antarctic winter sea ice has once again broken the record for maximum extent. On September 12, the coverage measured 19.619 million square kilometres, the highest since satellite records began.

The ice has broken daily records on about 150 days this year, indicating consistently greater coverage than in previous years. With several weeks of growth still to go, more records could fall.

2014 is the third year in a row that the ice has broken the maximum extent record. In 2013 the sea ice reached 19.47 million square km, 3.6% above the average for 1981-2010. The records continue a weak trend towards greater sea ice cover, which evidence suggests is linked to increasing greenhouse gases and climate change.

Dr Guy Williams, a sea ice specialist at University of Tasmania who has previously written on The Conversation, said the new records add to an “exciting” puzzle for climate scientists. Each record-breaking year is different due to variations in seasonal weather and ocean conditions — “it’s those differences that will tell us something.”

Total sea ice extent is not the full story either. The weak positive trend masks declines in some regions, and increases in others. Parts of the Antarctic — particularly to the west of the Antarctic Peninsula — show a very large decline in sea ice. In other regions, such as the Ross Sea, sea ice is increasing.

There are also as yet no published data on sea ice volume — a much better measure of whether sea ice is increasing or decreasing.

Two suspects: wind and water

There are two main hypotheses to explain the changes in Antarctic sea ice. The first is that westerly winds, which flow around Antarctica, are speeding up and shifting south. Counter-intuitively, this drives sea ice further north.

Scientists have shown that there is a direct link between the winds shifting south and increasing greenhouse and ozone-depleting gases, and a link between the winds and increasing sea ice cover, but not as yet a link between all three.

Dr Williams said so far this year the hypothesis checks out — atmospheric patterns, comparable to El Niño that affects the Pacific Ocean, mean the westerly winds are further south than normal.

The other hypothesis is that melt water from Antarctica’s melting glaciers and ice sheets is making it easier for sea ice to form. As the ice melts, cold, fresh water pours into the surrounding ocean. Colder and fresher surface water freezes more easily, and also reduces the heat from deeper in the ocean reaching the surface.

Dr Williams said scientists investigating satellite-derived sea surface temperatures in the Ross Sea — where sea ice is increasing — are reporting that the surface water has indeed been colder this year.

New Mini Ice Age

“… So now we've refreshed that which we have said before, a review. You are in the middle of a cycle that will bring cooling to the planet. It is not a heat cycle, but rather a cooling cycle. But it always starts with a short heat cycle. It has been here before. It will come again. It is a long cycle - one generation plus five years. That's how long it's going to last. It starts with the melting of the ice caps, which is far more than any of you have seen in your lifetime or those of your ancestors. It is a cycle whose repetition is thousands of years long, but one that has not yet been recorded to the books of Human record. But it's definitely been recorded in the cores of the ice and in the rings of the trees.

Thousands of years old, it is, and it happens in a cyclical way. It's about water. It starts with that which is the melting of the ice caps to a particular degree, which has a profound effect on the planet in all ways. You can't have that happen without seeing life change as well as Gaia change and you've seeing it already. What happens when you take that which is heavy on the poles [ice] and you melt it? It then becomes cold water added to that which is a very, very gentle and finite balance of temperature in the seas of the planet (1). The first thing that happens is a redistribution of the weight of water on the thin crust of the earth from ice at the poles to new water in the seas. The results become earthquakes and volcanoes, and you're seeing them, aren't you? You are having earthquakes in places that are not supposed to have earthquakes. Volcanoes are coming to life in a way that you've not seen before on a regular basis. There will be more. Expect them.

Is it too much to ask of a Human Being that if you live by a volcano that you know might erupt, maybe you ought to move? Yet there will be those who say, "It hasn't erupted in my lifetime or my parents' lifetime or my grandparents' lifetime; therefore, it won't." You may have a surprise, for all things are changing. That is what is happening to Gaia. ….“

“… The Weather

Let's talk about the weather. We retreat to exactly what we told you before in this very chair. The water cycle is a cooling cycle, not a heating cycle. You're going to have more severe winters and storms. It's going to get colder. But it gets warmer before it gets colder. That is the cycle, and it has always been the cycle. You can see it in the rings of the trees and the cores of the ice. Don't let your scientists pull the political wool over your eyes for their own purposes. Start seeing these things for what they are. It's a recurring cycle based on four Earth alignment attributes, including the wobble (the precession). You're in this cycle. Prepare.

The beginnings of it will be with you from now at least until the end of the 2012 36-year window, and you can watch it work. The first thing that happens is that the ice melts at the poles, but not completely. It's the way it has happened before. As the redistribution of weight from the poles to the oceans of the earth takes place, the weight is redistributed to the crust, and that creates earthquakes. And the earthquakes that will be the most powerful are the ones that are closest to the poles. We told you that some time ago. So it's not a mystery that suddenly you have some of the most powerful earthquakes that you've ever had. Not only that, but a cooling ocean creates larger storms.

What do the conspiracists do with all this? "See? We're doomed. Here it comes," they say. "Here it comes! The end is here!" Twenty-two years ago, we gave you the information that is happening today. We told you about the weather. We told you to get ready for it, but we still haven't told you why the water cycle is needed. We've hinted at it since it is very controversial, and we'll lose many readers right here and now. Here's the prediction: The scientists are going to laugh and biologists are going to scratch their heads and roll their eyes.

The Refreshing of the Cycle of Life

When you change the temperature of the waters of the planet, it changes the life cycle of the ocean and it eventually renews itself. The life cycle of the planet has a limit to its viability over time. There has to be a refreshing of the very cycle of life, and this is what the water cycle does. Are there any places you've seen too many fish lately? Yes. Millions of salmon in the north. Odd that it was in Alaska, isn't it? Alaska is very close to the poles where the water temperature is being felt first. Oh, again the experts will tell you that this is not the reason. It's about hatcheries and rivers. But nobody predicted this, did they? Science is fast to give you reasons, but slow to give you logic in advance. They always seem to be surprised.

We are saying things we haven't said before. Again, watch for this, an actual change in the life cycle of the planet's oceans because of the water temperature shift. Biologists are going to have to start redesigning the paradigm of how everything works, including reefs, ocean bottoms, and how plankton survive and reproduce. Listen, this is not the first time that the life cycle has been refreshed! But again, this may take generations of humanity to complete. In the process, you may again lose species. This is normal. Gaia is slow, and Humans are impatient. Your textbooks may someday tell of how naive humanity was back in 2011 when they tried to blame weather changes on everything but a natural cycle. Now you know why there is a water cycle.

So what does that tell you about Gaia? Gaia is beginning the cycle of refreshing life on over-fished oceans. It tells you that in the cracks, there is love and caring about the Humans who live on the earth. There's a reason you're here. There's a plan here, and a benevolent Universe and quantum energy with intelligent design. All is there for you, precious, sacred Human Being. …”





"... Magnetics: Always a Player in The Shift

Many things are happening with the planet at the moment. The magnetics are changing as well. The magnetics of the solar system and the sun in particular, have an influence on your weather. How many sun spots have you seen lately? What do you think about the correlation of a sun that has very few, with your earth climate?  When can you remember that in your lifetime? What does it mean? I will tell you, dear Human Beings, that it's all related to what's happening on the earth. You may not understand the correlation, but I will tell you there is a profound one. What if [astronomy hint coming next], what if sun spots were created by gravitational and other interdimensional forces caused by the orbiting planets? Has there even been a correlation made between sun spots and the positions of the planets? Too weird? The invitation is there to see the correlations.

The sun is the fulcrum of the interdimensional gravitational pull attributes of the planets around it. There is information that is interdimensional – call it a gravitational patterning, if you wish – which the sun generates every moment of the day. As the planets push and pull on the fulcrum of the solar system [effect the sun through gravity], they affect the sun's attitude. These patterns are unique every day, and they intersect the magnetic field of the earth as they are blasted from the Sun in what you would call the solar wind.

The solar wind is a magnetic heliosphere, and has very multidimensional properties. This magnetic wind strikes the earth, intersecting with the magnetic field, and you can see it! You call it the Aurora Borealis. It's one giant magnetic field [the sun] intersecting another [the earth]. Science calls this intersecting phenomena inductance. In that intersecting energy, there is a transference of the informative patterning of the sun [at that moment] to the magnetic grid of the earth. Now, it's the magnetic grid of the planet that you sit in. All of life does.

Now we give you information we've given you before: The Merkabah. That is to say, your DNA imprint - the field around you - receives the magnetic grid's sun information, and the instructions within that field are passed right to the DNA, which is also magnetic. I have just given you the magnetic transmission chain that you think is esoteric. It's not. It's hard science. But to think that the interdimensional, magnetic and gravitational attributes of the solar system are going to your DNA is very esoteric. Some call it astrology. The truth is that it's for humanity, and also for Gaia! For remember that it is the earth that is part of the magnetic chain of information to your cellular structure [the Magnetic Grid]. It tells it when to do what it does. It's all related. So how related are you to Gaia? How much do you address this consciousness? ..."

Fifa officials will be ordered to surrender designer watches left in World Cup hotel rooms as gifts

Ethics committee of football's world governing body will rule that its members cannot keep watches offered as World Cup souvenirs

The Telegraph, Ben Rumsby, 15 Sep 2014

preventing a breach of its ethical code Photo: AFP

Sepp Blatter and other members of Fifa’s executive committee will be ordered to surrender designer watches worth hundreds of thousands of pounds after being given them at the World Cup.

Football’s world governing body on Friday night confirmed its ethics committee had been informed about gifts delivered to its president and 26 other executives during the tournament in Brazil, the acceptance of which would be a clear breach of its code of ethics.

Fifa also revealed its chief investigator, Michael J Garcia, who last week submitted his long-awaited report into the controversial 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids, had already blocked the delivery of another set of expensive watches to its ExCo shortly before this summer’s showpiece.

Its ethics committee is expected to rule next week that members cannot keep the second set of timepieces left for them in their Rio hotel rooms by the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF).

Fifa, beset by bribery scandals in recent years, insisted on Friday night that there was no evidence Blatter or any of its other executives had deliberately breached a code of ethics that prohibited the acceptance of gifts of anything other than “symbolic or trivial value”.

Indeed, a source said that some ExCo members had not even taken a gift bag containing the watch which had been left for them, others were unaware what was in the bag, while some reported the gifts to the relevant authority upon discovering them.

Fifa confirmed the watches were designer timepieces by Parmigiani, commissioned as part of the CBF’s centennial celebrations, with each worth tens of thousands of pounds.

The other watches which never reached ExCo members were sent to Fifa’s headquarters in Zurich by its official World Cup timekeeper, Hublot, as a “souvenir” of the tournament. They were intended to be delivered to executives at the governing body’s annual congress in Sao Paulo in June but Garcia and the independent chairman of Fifa’s audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, ruled that would not be acceptable.

A Fifa source said on Friday night the action taken by Garcia and Scala in both cases demonstrated the governance reforms it introduced in the past couple of years was having a major effect.

The governing body added in a formal statement: “Firstly, the fact is that Fifa has not distributed any watches to any of the members of its executive committee nor to its president.

“As the official timekeeper of the 2014 Fifa World Cup, and in line with the company’s standard approach for any of its marketing activations, Hublot provided Fifa with watches as part of the contract and as a form of value in kind.

“In accordance with internal governance processes, Fifa formally asked the independent chairman of the investigatory chamber of the Fifa ethics committee, Michael J Garcia, and the independent chairman of the audit and compliance committee, Domenico Scala, in June 2014 if it would be acceptable to provide its executive committee and the Fifa president with these watches as a souvenir of the 2014 Fifa World Cup.

“The two chairmen determined in June 2014 that this would not be permitted under the organisation’s compliance rules and as such it was decided not to distribute any of the watches to any members.

“Secondly, the Brazilian Football Federation (CBF) distributed commemorative watches at the Fifa World Cup in Brazil from their own sponsor (as part of the association’s centennial celebrations) to various people, including the members of the Fifa executive committee. The ethics committee was informed about this accordingly and is dealing with the matter.”

Fifa brought in a new code of ethics in 2012 after being engulfed by allegations of bribery relating to its relationships with its partners and the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 World Cups.

Garcia’s long-awaited report into the latter saga is expected to lead to further action to prevent a repeat of the controversy but it remains to be seen whether any individuals or countries are found guilty of wrongdoing.

Pope breaks taboo by marrying couples who lived 'in sin'

Yahoo – AFP, Ljubomir Milasin, 14 Sep 2014

at St Peter's basilica in Vatican City, on September 14, 2014. (AFP, Alberto Pizzoli)

Vatican City (AFP) - A single mother, people who have been married before and couples who have been living together "in sin" were married by Pope Francis in a taboo-challenging ceremony at the Vatican on Sunday.

In another signal of the openness of his papacy, Francis asked to marry 40 people from different social backgrounds who would be a realistic sample of modern couples.

Popes very rarely perform marriages -- the last one was in 2000.

Marriage "is not an easy road, it's sometimes a contentious trip, but that's life", the pope told the couples, both young and old, as their families gathered for the solemn two-hour ceremony.

"It's normal that couples fight. That always happens, but don't end the day without making peace, even a small gesture is enough," said the pontiff, who donned a red robe for the occasion rather than his usual white.

One of the couples he married was single mother Gabriella and her partner Guido, whose previous marriage was annulled by an ecclesiastical tribunal.

The last time a pope performed a marriage was under the leadership of John Paul II in 2000, and before that in 1994.

It comes three weeks before a major synod of the Catholc Church will discuss the divisive issues of marriage, divorce and conception.

The church ban on allowing divorcees who have remarried to receive communion is one of the key topics up for debate, and resolving deep divisions over the issue inside the church is seen as a key test of Francis' leadership.

Francis has shown himself more open than his predecessors on the subject of marriage, and has spoken of more realistic attitude to social problems, raising the issue of broken marriages and abandoned women.

Last January he baptised the child of a single mother in the Sistine Chapel along with the daughter of a couple who had not been married in a church.

Russia set for support role in China-led Nicaragua canal project

Want China Times, Staff Reporter 2014-09-11

Russia and Nicaragua have been discussing Russia's role in the construction of a canal building project that would connect the Pacific and Atlantic via Nicaragua, reports Hong Kong-based newspaper Ta Kung Pao.

The project is backed by funds from China, which has no diplomatic ties with Nicaragua. Managua recognizes the Republic of China on Taiwan.

According to reports from the Russian Agency of International Information, Russian president Vladimir Putin is taking a proactive role in facilitating Russia's participation in the project. On his way from Cuba to Argentina in July, Putin rearranged his schedule to allow for a brief visit to Nicaragua and a meeting with the country's president, Daniel Ortega, to discuss Russia's role in the project.

According to diplomatic sources, Russia's involvement in the project will be in the form of military support to ensure safety during the construction process. Nicaragua will allow Russian fleets to patrol the Pacific and Caribbean coasts of the country. The cooperation deal is due to go into effect in the first half of 2015 after both sides sign the agreement.

The construction of the 278-km canal, from the mouth of the Brito River on the Pacific side to the Punto Gorda River on the Caribbean side, will likely cost US$40 billion. The project is being funded by HK Nicaragua Canal Development Investment Company (HKND Group), led by Chinese entrepreneur and billionaire Wang Jing.

Vladimir Evseev, director of Russia's Center for Social and Political Research, said it is a big step for both Russia and China to collaborate on a construction project to compete with the Panama Canal.

"Russia is not able to contribute in terms of material," he said, "I think Russia would not be able to take part in the project if not for China's funds."

"We [Russia and China] are both interested in restraining the US," said Evseev. "The problem is, China does not want to make unnecessary trouble–it relies on the US economically and this hinders it politically. Russia on the other hand is more independent. With China as back up, Russia may develop its multi-polar world."

Nicaragua will allow Russia to deploy its flotilla from the Atlantic to the Pacific quickly, said Evseev. "Russia will gain lots of mobility, especially if Russian naval bases are deployed in Cuba," he continued. "The canal's proximity to the US soil makes the passing significant."

The canal will "open a new gate" for Russia as the country could effectively contain NATO's military deployments on the border between Russia and Eastern European countries, and expand its trade with Latin America.

HKND Group has been granted the exclusive rights to develop and manage the canal for 100 years.

'Meteorite' smashes into Nicaraguan capital

Yahoo – AFP, 8 Sep 2014

Managua, on September 7, 2014 (AFP Photo/German Miranda)

Managua (AFP) - A mysterious explosion that rocked Nicaragua's crowded capital Managua, creating a large crater, appears to have been caused by a small meteorite, officials said Sunday.

Amazingly, in a sprawling city of 1.2 million people, the impact near the international airport did not cause any known injuries, but it did leave a crater measuring 12 meters (39 feet) across and was felt throughout the capital late on Saturday.

Nicaraguan authorities believe it was a piece of the small asteroid dubbed "2014 RC," which passed very close to Earth on Sunday and was estimated by astronomers to be about 20 meters big, or the size of a house.

"We are convinced that this was a meteorite. We have seen the crater from the impact," said Wilfredo Strauss of the Seismic Institute.

The meteorite appeared to have hurtled into a wooded area near the airport around midnight and the hit was so large that it registered on the instruments Strauss's organization uses to size up earthquakes.

"You can see two waves: first, a small seismic wave when the meteorite hit earth, and then another stronger one, which is the impact of the sound," he said.

Government officials and experts visited the impact site on Sunday.

One of them, William Martinez, said it was not yet clear if the meteorite burned up completely or if it had been blasted into the soil.

"You can see mirror-like spots on the sides of the crater from where the meteorite power-scraped the walls," Martinez said.

Government spokeswoman, First Lady Rosario Murillo, said Managua would be in contact with the US Geological Service to try to get more information about "this fascinating event" in the Central American nation, one of Latin America's poorest countries.

People who live near the crater told local media they heard a blast they took for an explosion, and that liquid, sand and dust were blown through the air, which smelled like something had burned.

There were no reported injuries because the impact was in a wooded spot, and flights at the airport were not affected.

NASA said last week that the asteroid 2014 RC, at the time of closest approach, would be approximately one-tenth the distance from the center of Earth to the moon, or about 25,000 miles (40,000 kilometers).

It had been projected to be roughly over New Zealand at the time of its closest approach, which astronomers had calculated would be on Sunday at about 1818 GMT.

Blind and leading the band: Jose plays hot jazz piano at nine years old

Bolivian boy Jose Andre Montanho impresses audiences with his brand of jazz despite being only nine – and blind

theguardian.comReuters in La Paz, Sunday 7 September 2014


Blind nine-year-old jazz pianist Jose Andre Montanho shows his skills.

With his dancing fingers and slick rhythm Jose Andre Montanho has become a rising star in Latin America’s music scene – not least because he’s blind and just nine years old.

At the young age of four the Bolivian boy from the colonial city of Totora picked up the drums with astonishing proficiency and quickly moved on to the piano. By age five he had formed a jazz trio.

If his ample musical talent – unmatched by many skilled musicians two or three times his age – wasn’t already enough, the fact that Jose is blind adds to his strikingly impressive resume.

Now he regularly performs across Bolivia and further afield.

“I’ve already been to Brazil and to Lima. I’m also playing in other municipalities such as La Paz, Santa Cruz and Cochabamba. I’m already famous because I travel a lot,” he said.

On Friday night Jose wowed crowds at the La Paz’s annual jazz festival. “It’s really going to inspire me [playing the jazz festival]. I love jazz. I listen to it a lot and I love it,” he said a few hours before taking to the stage.

Apart from being able to play any jazz song in the book with alarming ease and style, the Bolivian child prodigy has well-rounded musical taste and isn’t limited to jazz.

Jazz singer Vero Perez spoke of his playing style.

“The most interesting thing about Jose Andre is that he plays in such a way that he shows other musicians how jazz music really is which is to be completely free, and improvise and to play with the musicians that you are with. You might be playing one note and then he will change it. You really have to be ready to play with him this serious game that is jazz,” she said.

"... Question Three: Is there life on other planets?

... I will tell you, as long as you stay in 3D, you'll still be getting in little metal cans and air suits and going to planets. As soon as you begin the quantum age, however, you will simply wish yourself there, because you will be entangled with everything and can go with intent. If you don't believe this now, you will later, for what I give you is true. It may be lifetimes and lifetimes from now, but the group that is before me is the group that is going to come back over and over. The difference is that you're done coming back in an old energy. This is a new energy..

When you come back, dear one, everything you know will be in your DNA and be on top [available]. You're not going to have to go through what you did before. As soon as you decide to look around and open the door [metaphor for free choice to awaken], everything you've learned this time around will be right there.

This is the attribute of what you would call "a child of new consciousness," which you have labeled with a color - indigo. The child remembers who they are. They are conceptual, and you believe they have to be taught from scratch! Hardly! They remember! Do you understand what is taking place? We told you this last time, but we want to review something with you: The animal on the prairie drops its calf and within hours, the calf is up, running with the herd. Did you know that the calf instantly knows who its enemies are, what water to drink that doesn't smell right, and what berries to eat that are not poison? Where did that come from? How did that infant animal know these things? The answer is that this information was biologically inherited. You call it instinct. But when you have a Human baby - nothing! It doesn't know anything but that it's hungry. It requires 20 years of teaching! Aren't you tired of that? Did you ever think about why the animals have so much knowledge to begin with and you have so little? Does that seem correct for the top of the evolutionary ladder? It's time for that to change.

You're starting to see it, even with the indigos. They come in knowing. That's why they're so impatient. You're trying to teach them things they already know instinctively. Just like the calf on the prairie, they come in knowing. Some of them try to teach you. That doesn't always go well. That was question three...."

"..... DNA - A Quantum Force 

Now we get to the core truth, don't we? So I will tell you. The ninety percent of DNA which is quantum, is filled with information, both esoteric and timeless. It is a quantum blueprint for everything you are and have been since you arrived on the planet the first time. DNA contains instruction sets for your life; everything from your full Akashic Record - every single lifetime you have had - to the benevolent creator's fingerprint within the seeds of creation itself. Every single talent you ever had is there, even if you don't have any of those today... the record is there. Every predisposition of weakness and strength are there. Biologically, every single instruction to every single stem cell is there. . ..."

"..... DNA is a Dynamic Molecule, not a static one.

Humanity is stuck in the 3D portion of their biological thinking. In your 3-D life, you simply accept the chemistry you're given. You act as though the three percent gene producing part is all there is. You believe it is a chemical protocol that is unchangeable and simply "you." You don't see it for the way it's designed. It's dynamic and always has been. It's not set, but will continue to simply repeat what it does unless there is another quantum influence on it.

Therefore you live with the 3 percent as though it were all there is, and since it just "came with your body" and seems to control everything, you never talk to it. Many of you come in with pre-dispositions based upon the karma which is put upon you from your past lives. You don't come in clean [without karmic energy]. Instead, you arrive with pre-dispositions, fears and phobias. Some are positive. Perhaps you come in as a prodigy continuing your last life... the 8-year-old who can paint like a master and do brushstrokes that take 30 years to develop. What does that tell you about what must be in the DNA?

Perhaps you come in as the composer, the pianist, the prodigy, the violinist, just waiting until your hands can go on the fingerboard or can reach up and fret the notes. Perhaps you come in knowing how to play the piano, just waiting for your hands to get big enough to do what you used to do... without any lessons. How do you explain that, dear ones? The answer is that all this is contained in the dynamic quantum instruction sets of your DNA... the part you never talk to it. .."



Question: Dear Kryon, would you please tell me if Indigo Children and Star Children are the same? Can someone born in the 1960’s be an Indigo?

Answer: Dear Human, don’t get bogged within your linearity in these things. You wish to compartmentalize everything, and thereby feel more comfortable in your understanding. Know this: All children being born on the planet have strong potential to be of the Indigo consciousness. Within that group there are many parts and attributes. What you have called a “Star Child” is a type of Indigo. The same goes for the “Crystal Children.”

Years ago we identified a new breed of Human that was slowly being introduced to earth. Now they are so plentiful that many are beginning to notice and categorize them. Our admonition is NOT to, but we know that sometimes make you feel better to do so. Another name for these “Star Children” are the Interdimensional or even the Interplanetary, if you wish.

As far as the potential of those born before or during the 1960’s: The answer is yes, but with a qualification. The “pure” Indigo Children have really only been arriving slowly for the past 25 or 30 years, but there are many who have what we call an “Indigo overlay.” This is Human who fits the generalizations, but without some of the absolutes that are buried in what you call the DNA that really qualify this new Human experience.

"THE THREE WINDS" – Feb 23-24, 2013 (Kryon Channelling by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Humanity, Home - other side of the veil, Wind of Birth - Birth, Wind of Existence - Life, Wind of Transition - Death) (Text version)

“…. The Biggest Change...

Old soul, right before you come back into the planet, the energy is completely different at the Wind of Birth because of what has happened in the last 20 years. In this new energy past 2013, the old soul who is coming back with that spiritual library filled with spiritual purpose is comfortable with this process. He intuitively remembers very fully what he has been through. Did you hear that? This is different than the last time! This is a result of everything that has happened in these last years. You have changed the rules!

The old soul is not going to be subject to some of the energies that push and pull a younger soul. The old soul has made up his or her mind as part of the planning about what they are going to do that they could not do before within an older energy. This is only possible since they can now plan on having the spiritual jar intuitively open early in the new life. The old soul may even know this now and plan for this before the end of his/her current life, intuitively knowing about the next life during the current life. This is the difference, dear ones. It's the beginning of "intuitive spiritual logic".

We've told you in previous channels about some of the interesting differences between new Humans and ones like you, who have been born into an older energy. We've told you that the quantum DNA alterations that you have created by living many lifetimes of awakening to enlightenment and knowledge will now allow you to be a very different child in your next life. It will be a child who remembers how to read instead of one who is taught how to read; a child who can walk earlier and talk earlier, because he remembers how. This is because the bridge in the DNA is starting to be complete between what was and what is. What this means is that the DNA is starting to quantumly change into its original state of being, which is that of being far more efficient. You will see it first in the children and, dear ones, don't expect to see it in a microscope. Instead, you will have to eventually ask a sociologist to prove any of this, for it will be seen first as a change in Human behavior.

Therefore, old souls will come in as Humans who will not need to start over and be taught everything from scratch, but instead will arrive with a full load of intuitive past-life experience. As their brains develop, they may even remember who they are [old souls who have been here before]. This is the promise of the new energy, especially after 2013. You're going to see changes in some of your children and grandchildren as they arrive and grow up. The stigma of a planet that is going to be destroyed by war or by God will not be among the energies of the new ones. The promise of a planet going into new, unchartered areas of quantum discovery will be upon them. They'll need a whole new set of tools.

Who Has Gone Through This?

Oh, you have all participated in this wind. Everyone in the room has participated in this. You stood there knowing what the life lessons were and the potentials of what was next due to what had happened in previous lives. These were not mistakes, dear ones. These were the results of potentials and plans you made for your own soul.

There is no newbie here in this room [to be explained]. Not all of you listening and reading, however, are old souls in the classic sense - souls who have been here hundreds of times. But you have been here before, so this counts as one who has walked through the process many times. It's what makes you interested in this material. Did you think of that? There is great variety, however, in the understanding of this knowledge among you. It is absorbed very differently between you. Some will sleep through it and others will be spiritually awakened by it [Kryon smile]. It depends on where you are on the path you planned. Again, each path is unique. …”



Violence on the decline in Mexico's war on drugs

A new policy in the war on drugs appears to be having the desired effect in Mexico. The murder rate is dropping, but despite a return to pre-2010 levels it's still too early to declare victory over the drug cartels.

Deutsche Welle, 7 Sep 2014


"Narcomensajes": the messages that Mexican drug cartels leave for their adversaries. These drug messages don't come through the mail, but are transmitted by contract killers who leave behind bullet-riddled bodies in public places, severed heads on dance floors and victims hanging from pedestrian bridges.

Atrocities like these, and their dissemination in the media and online, are not just the preserve of Islamist terrorist groups. In the Latin American drug war, these cruel messages have long been an important tool for the drug cartels, which use them to intimidate and deter actual and potential adversaries.

Open war

For several years now, the central scene of the drug war in the Americas has been Mexico. The country has experienced a rapid increase in violence since 2007, when the murder rate tripled within four years. Between 2007 and 2012, Mexico's national statistics office counted 121,613 murders. This period coincided almost exactly with President Felipe Calderon's term of office. Calderon declared open war on the cartels and employed massive military force against the gangs.

Military strikes against drug cartels
are the exception today
The government claims to have killed or captured more than 20 leading figures in the drug mafia. But the price for that success has been high, according to an article for the Cato Institute, an Washington-based think tank. In the piece, Mexico's foreign minister from 2000 to 2003 estimates that 55,000 murders can be directly linked to the war on drugs.

"President Calderon made the war on drugs the central theme of his political policies. Strikes against the drug cartels or allegedly corrupt politicians were played up for the media," explained Günther Maihold, who currently teaches at the Humboldt Institute in Mexico City. The drug cartels saw this struggle for media attention and decided to use it for their own purposes.

The result of this media battle: during Calderon's tenure, 3,793 bodies were found carrying drug messages, according to Mexico's office of national security - an average of 12 executions per week.

Steady decline in murder rate

President Pena Nieto relies on police rather
than the Military, unlike his predecessor
Under Enrique Peña Nieto, Calderon's successor who has been in office since December 2012, Mexico's government has adopted a new strategy. "The new president has put on emphasis on policing, rather than military and propaganda," said Maihold.

Since then, a number of leading capos have been arrested, among them Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who headed the powerful Sinaloa cartel. Just last week, on August 31, police arrested one of the key men behind the exceptionally cruel Los Zetas cartel. One day later, the military stormed one of the gang's training camps.

Perhaps the most important success of the new strategy - at least for Mexican citizens - has been the significant decline in violence. Over the last few years the murder rate has steadily declined, dropping below 2010 levels last year.

The frequency of the cruel narcomensajes has drastically decreased as well, falling from an average of 52 murders a month to just eight.

No end in sight

"Implicitly, the government seems to be more tolerant towards the cartels, as long as they aren't so bloody and ruthless," Ted Galen Carpenter, senior fellow for defense and foreign policy studies at the Cato Institute, told DW. "Obviously, this is a deal no-one would ever admit." However, the declining murder rate should not be seen as a sign that the cartels are becoming weaker.

Gangs sometimes use tunnels to
smuggle drugs to the US
To avoid the concerted effort by the Calderon administration, drug gangs have increasingly relocated their activities into neighboring Central American countries. In addition, explained Maihold , the cartel structures are very flexible.

"They aren't strictly hierarchical, but consist of relatively autonomous sub-organizations which are able to find new partners relatively quickly, if one falls away," he said. The gangs are also increasingly branching out into other lucrative crimes such as kidnapping, extortion and human trafficking.

The best way to combat the cartels, believes Carpenter, is to deprive them of the basis of their exorbitant profit margins. This task, he said, is primarily one for US politicians. "Prohibition [of drugs] has not led to a solution, prohibition empowers illegal powers," he said. "We need to start a serious debate on how to deal with the massive demand for hard drugs [in the US]." The progressive legalization of marijuana in some states could be just the beginning.

The most important step that President Pena Nieto has taken in this direction might be his investment in infrastructure. "When young people have opportunities to earn money, it decreases their incentive to join a drug gang," said Carpenter. It's a tactic that effectively deprives the cartels of their next generation of gang members.
