It has come to light that Scotland Yard loaned a retired police horse to the former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks to ride for a year before it was put out to pasture….the horse that is.  This revelation has sent Twitter into a joke frenzy – some better than others.

New Ice Age to Begin in 2014.

New Ice Age to Begin in 2014

 

 

 

 

 

Forecasters predict that a new ice age will begin soon. Habibullo Abdusamatov, a scientist from the Pulkovo Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences considers that the sharp drop in temperature will start on the Earth in 2014.

According to the scientist, our planet began to “get cold” in the 1990s. The new ice age will last at least two centuries, with its peak in 2055.

It is interesting, that the same date was chosen by the supporters of the theory of global warming. According to them, in 2005 the Earth will start to “boil”.

The expected decrease in temperature may have to become the fifth over the past nine centuries, reports Hydrometeorological Center of Russia. Experts call this phenomenon the “little ice age”, it was observed in the XII, XV, XVII, XIX centuries. This cyclicity makes the theory of upcoming cold weather in XXI century look like truth.

Rough sleeping on the rise in Britain.

The number of people sleeping rough in England has increased by 23 percent in a year, according to new data provided by homelessness charity Crisis.
The charity said it had collected the figures in a single night last autumn, and compared with an assessment 12 months earlier, the daily The Independent reported.

According to figures, the number of rough sleepers in one night in 2011 was 2,181 in England. It was 413 more than 1,768 on the same night the previous year.

London and the South East had the highest number of rough sleepers with more than 400 in each region, the report said.

More than half of London’s rough sleepers come from overseas, with a notable growth in people from Central and Eastern Europe.

Grant Shapps, the Minister for Housing and Local Government, has pledged an additional £18.5 million to help councils tackle rough sleeping.

“This country has some of the best homelessness services for those who become destitute in the world, but rough sleeping is still on the rise, and I want to make sure we’re doing everything we can to prevent anyone spending a second night on the street”, he said.

Leslie Morphy, chief executive of homelessness charity Crisis, said: “The government must learn from these figures and ensure that the services and help homeless people need are available in every area.”

Extreme cold weather hits Europe.

February 3rd 2012.   Find Photo Gallery Here:-

Frigid temperatures have gripped Europe in the last week, with the mercury reaching as low as 35 degrees Celsius below zero. After what had been a relatively mild winter, the sudden cold caught many unprepared. Eastern Europe is hardest hit, with over 100 deaths in Ukraine, and with over 11,000 people in remote villages cut off by snow in Serbia. Most of the fatalities recorded have been homeless people found frozen to death outside, and emergency tents with hot meals have been set up to help them in several affected countries. Russia and Poland are mobilizing help for the homeless. Travel in Romania has been chaos as a blizzard hampered efforts to clear both rails and roads. Recorded temperatures in Italy were the lowest in 27 years. — Lane Turner (45 photos total)

Do The Rothschilds Want Iran’s Banks?

Could gaining control of the Central Bank of the Islamic Republic of Iran (CBI) be one of the main reasons that Iran is being targeted by Western and Israeli powers? As tensions are building up for an unthinkable war with Iran, it is worth exploring Iran’s banking system compared to its U.S., British and Israeli counterparts.

Some researchers are pointing out that Iran is one of only three countries left in the world whose central bank is not under Rothschild control. Before 9-11 there were reportedly seven: Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Libya, Cuba, North Korea and Iran. By 2003, however, Afghanistan and Iraq were swallowed up by the Rothschild octopus, and by 2011 Sudan and Libya were also gone. In Libya, a Rothschild bank was established in Benghazi while the country was still at war.

Islam forbids the charging of interest, a major problem for the Rothschild banking system. Until a few hundred years ago, charging interest was also forbidden in the Christian world and was even punishable by death. It was considered exploitation and enslavement.

Since the Rothschilds took over the Bank of England around 1815, they have been expanding their banking control over all the countries of the world. Their method has been to get a country’s corrupt politicians to accept massive loans, which they can never repay, and thus go into debt to the Rothschild banking powers. If a leader refuses to accept the loan, he is oftentimes either ousted or assassinated. And if that fails, invasions can follow, and a Rothschild usury-based bank is established.

The Rothschilds exert powerful influence over the world’s major news agencies. By repetition, the masses are duped into believing horror stories about evil villains. The Rothschilds control the Bank of England, the Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the IMF, the World Bank and the Bank of International Settlements. Also they own most of the gold in the world as well as the London Gold Exchange, which sets the price of gold every day. It is said the family owns over half the wealth of the planet—estimated by Credit Suisse to be $231 trillion—and is controlled by Evelyn Rothschild, the current head of the family.

Objective researchers contend that Iran is not being demonized because they are a nuclear threat, just as the Taliban, Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Qadaffi were not a threat.

What then is the real reason? Is it the trillions to be made in oil profits, or the trillions in war profits? Is it to bankrupt the U.S. economy, or is it to start World War III? Is it to destroy Israel’s enemies, or to destroy the Iranian central bank so that no one is left to defy Rothschild’s money racket?

It might be any one of those reasons or, worse—it might be all of them.

A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 – by Isao Hashimoto

Watch Video Here:-

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project’s “Trinity” test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan’s nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea’s two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear).

Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto, who began the project in 2003, says that he created it with the goal of showing”the fear and folly of nuclear weapons.” It starts really slow — if you want to see real action, skip ahead to 1962 or so — but the buildup becomes overwhelming.

Scientists Fear Antibiotics are Perpetuating Diseases Impossible to Treat.

Antibiotics, like many other drugs, are handed out by doctors as an end-all solution pill. Even for viral ailments doctors irresponsibly prescribe these pills as a solution. Unfortunately with all of the over-prescriptions and even necessary prescriptions, antibiotics have routinely been creating drug-resistant bacteria. Britain now seems to be facing their own massive increase in antibiotic-resistant blood poisoning caused by escherichia coli (E. coli).

Scientists Fear Antibiotics are Perpetuating Diseases Impossible to Treat

Bugs and bacteria rapidly adapt to survive, only taking months to for the genetic mutations to occur. Antibiotics, although successful in wiping out most of the bacterial invaders, don’t kill absolutely all of them. Over time the bacteria which survive the antibiotics become resistant, and continue to reproduce, only now with a quirk in their genetic structure allowing them to survive.

The slow but problematic growth of resistant organisms are resulting in antibiotics being nearly useless. The Independent reports:

Using standard antibiotic regimens, there is a one in 10 chance that treatment of an E.coli infection will fail because the bug is resistant. But, as numbers of resistant infections rise, there will be increasing pressure to use more powerful antibiotics, called carbapenems, which are the last line available. And resistance to those is already emerging…The warnings follow increasing reports from Europe of patients with infections that are almost impossible to treat.

But should this be a problem, as antibiotics, even if used in higher doses, are still killing off the invading bacteria? Sadly antibiotics do not discriminate against beneficial and bad bacteria. These medical giveaways are virtually depleting your body of all beneficial bacteria, leading to numerous health complications due to poor gut flora.

Antibiotics, linked to skyrocketing mental illness rates, are being identified as a player in the soaring obesity rates around the globe. In one study regarding the depletion of ‘good’ bacteria in the gut, researchers explained how antibiotics administered to mice ultimately resulted in altered behaviors far beyond diarrhea and pain.

With the combination of health complications and resistant superbugs, it is any wonder why antibiotics are still being used excessively. The drugs, making up what we at NaturalSociety like to call the disease machine, are perpetuating diseases that the medical establishment views as impossible to treat. All the while, their overuse is costing the National Health Service the equivalent of over $10.5 million per year.

Luckily a number of powerful natural antibiotics exist that do not come with such harsh side effects. Honey, garlic, echinacea, goldenseal, wild indigo and various amino acids have been shown to reduce the need for antibiotics. In addition, strengthening the body’s natural defensive mechanisms with super supplements like turmeric or curcumin would be a wise choice.
