Glenn Beck delivered an unprecedented punch Saturday at his Restore Honor Rally.  Watching on UStream Live, at times it seemed like I was at Church, hearing a homily about patriotism and the intertwining of God in the founding of America. Just like as it often happens in church, towards then end I am getting bored.

Flipping channels, I also saw Reverend Al Sharpton’s Reclaim the Dream Rally.  Clearly, Glenn Beck’s Restore Honor Rally created much more fervor in the hearts of attendees with a much larger turnout.  

The article, A Tale of Two Rallies reviews the days events noting that the Lincoln Memorial was packed a couple hours before the start of “Restoring Honor” while at 10:30am — Thirty minutes before his “Reclaim the Dream” rally start, Al Sharpton has some catching up to do.  http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/27080?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Sharpton never really caught up, in as much as the mainstream media did it’s best to discredit Beck and make it look like there was a larger turnout for Sharpton. 

Reading other opinions and news on the events and I stumble into this photo from The New York Daily News, http://www.nydailynews.com.  Check out the cool little frog who is so small it fits inside Lincoln’s head!

INDRANEIL DAS/AFP/Getty Images

Pretty neat photograph to illustrate just how small this frog is.  Wait a minute, why is “In God We Trust,” blurry?  The top of Lincoln’s head seems to be intact, but not the words.

The photo is credited to Indranil Das, an independent documentary photographer based in Kolkata, India. He travels widely to document the rich and wide variety of socio – political – economic scenarios prevailing in India.  (http://www.lightstalkers.org/indranil-das

Perhaps Mr. Das is a non-believer in God.  Does it matter if Das is a Hindu or a Baptist?  A penny is a penny.  A frog is a frog. Why take the effort to remove the words that are clearly there? In God We Trust.  Is God taboo?  Beck, Sharpton and others sure don’t think so.

The Microhyla nepenthicola, is Asia’s smallest frog.  It is all rather ironic that an acronym for F.R.O.G. is, Finally Relying On God.

Beck is a Mormon, Sharpton is a Pentecostal/Baptist, and the jury still debates what President Obama’s religion is.  I don’t know what religion Abe Lincoln was but, “Lincoln read the Bible regularly and was committed to God and morality throughout his life. Some historians call him a Deist,” wrote http://www.adherents.com/people/pl/Abraham_Lincoln.html

Lincoln believed in God and freed millions from slavery.  Obama was sworn in on his Bible.  “Malia Obama, the 10-year-old daughter of President-elect Obama, plans to make herself right at home in the White House and has already called dibs on using Abraham Lincoln’s desk for her homework. http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/President44/story?id=6339711&page=1

“I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character, said “Martin Luther King, delivered 28 August 1963, at the Lincoln Memorial, Washington D.C. – The full speech is at http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm

Is it honorable in America to protest a Muslim mosque near ground zero in NYC?  UncleRUSH, aka Russell Simmons of Def Jam records doesn’t think so in a recent letter to the WSJ. http://globalgrind.com/channel/news/content/1764666/come-with-me-to-tennessee-or-stay-out-of-my-backyard/?pc=1&pi=0 

Let’s hope the spirit of Abe Lincoln and Martin Luther King, and the words of Glenn Beck and Al Sharpton bring America together, in the name of God to do what is right, just and moral in this Republic.  We are, one nation under God.

SNAFU.  

I’ve got a bilateral eye injury.  The water hose sprinkler got me in the face at full stream in both eyes – at a distance of about two feet.  Ouch, how stupid?  Can’t see so well to read or type, and everyone else is unavailable.

Since it is August and Congress is on a vacation, I’m taking a break too.  I think I’ll jump through a sprinkler as opposed to shooting myself with one!  Stupid is as stupid does.  Be back shortly!

Blaming the Russian heat wave on the weather and not something conspiratorial like HAARP, is this post from WUWT.

More on the Russian heat wave - satellite analysis By Steve Goddard Dr Pielke's excellent post gave me an idea. NASA said : Not all parts of the Russian Federation experienced unusual warmth on July 20–27, 2010. A large expanse of northern central Russia, for instance, exhibits below-average temperatures. Areas of atypical warmth, however, predominate in the east and west. Orange- and red-tinged areas extend from eastern Siberia toward the southwest, but the most obvious area of unusual warmth oc … Read More

What caused the H1N1 Swine Flu Outbreak?

For a minute I’ll take off my tinfoil hat.  I will not remind you of all the conspiracy surrounding the unusual events surrounding its origin.  I won’t rant about the fact that Baxter Labs has a manufacturing plant near ground zero, where the pandemic was first identified.

Scientist believe they have found one reason why the H1N1 replicated so fast in humans. A new study from PLOS Pathogens, Biological and Structural Characterization of a Host-Adapting Amino Acid in Influenza Virus  http://www.plospathogens.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.ppat.1001034 shows that a lysine amino acid is located in a different place in the protein strand than expected, and possibly the reason why H1N1 can adapt so easily.

…these results have led to the concept that PB2-627K or PB2-701N are critical for efficient influenza virus replication in mammalian species. Nevertheless, the pandemic H1N1 viruses and some H5N1 influenza viruses isolated from humans do not possess these amino acids. Here, we sought to identify additional amino acid changes that facilitate virus adaptation in mammalian species.

The findings offer an interesting insight.

The study was carried out on ferret, ostrich, mice, dog cell lines and human embryonic kidney cells. All influenza viruses used in this study were amplified in MDCK (dog) cells.

…engineered synthetic genes for the PB2 gene of influenza A virus strains A/Vietnam/1203/04 (H5N1) (AAT73550) and A/Mexico/InDRE4487/09 (H1N1) (ACQ73384)…The C-terminal amino acid residues 538–741 from both strains were cloned into an engineered pET vector using the Polymerase Incomplete Primer Extension (PIPE) cloning technology

Engineered synthetic genes and cloned amino acid strains!  Wow, welcome to the world of bio-engineering. 

This is the part where we look for our tinfoil hat and ask if the H1N1 Swine Flu Virus and the H5N1 Avian Flu Virus, aren’t engineered or cloned in the first place?  Could mother nature have mutated the 1918 virus naturally within 100 years?  There has been co-circulation of multiple H1N1 sequences across the globe.  Is it more likely someone by intention or accident let the proverbial rat out of the cage?

Mexico has cancelled it’s Pandemic emergency.  I double dog dare you to find where the declared the swine flu outbreak’s national emergency declaration has ended in the U.S.A.   Enacting Emergency powers, https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/25/h1n1-swine-flu-national-emergency-for-constitution/ gives unprecidented opportunities for government control.

Whatever biological significance this study has found, don’t think for a New York minute that further mutation isn’t coming anytime soon.  

“After analyzing multiple samples of the new flu virus, the team ascertained that in some cases the HA of the new H1N1 strain have mutated, allowing the strain to stick to human cells more easily….the same mutations have been found in HA of the H5N1 strain of influenza, the highly virulent bird flu, which kills about 60 percent of those it infects. ” http://biomedreports.com/articles/most-popular/1438-h1n1-flu-has–

Is conspiracy theory nothing more than cognitive dissonance?

Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding contradictory ideas simultaneously. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance. They do this by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and actions.[2] Dissonance is also reduced by justifying, blaming, and denying. It is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance

What is the motivational drive behind conspiracy?  I’d say it is to ask questions, validate truth, challenge the unknown, suspect what is known in order to come to the conclusion that sometimes, Situation Normal is All F‘kd Up- SNAFU. Wired magazine had this to say,

Although we’re all vulnerable to cognitive dissonance – and the paranoid style has always been a loud presence in American politics – we seem to squander ever more time on worthless conversations about Obama’s birth certificate or the spurious link between autism and vaccines. After all, thanks to Google we can find “evidence” in support of practically any belief. If you can imagine the conspiracy theory, there is a website out there ardently promoting it, and a clan of fellow believers who share your peculiar obsession with fluoridated drinking water and the New World Order. http://derrenbrown.co.uk/blog/2010/08/psychology-conspiracy-theories/

I am pretty sure that cognitive dissonance is not paranoia.  It is rather, a justifiable means of exploring what someone else defines as the truth.  To say that it is worthless to seek out the President of the United States birth origin or find a connection with vaccine use and autism, I find rather appalling.  Hardly a waste of time as a U.S. Citizen or for a parent of a child with autism.

Can cognitive dissonance be familial?  I believe so.   Last night our family went for a late night swim under some raindrops.  There was a low ceiling and what was clearly an airplane to the adults, was not so obvious to one of the children who proclaimed, “Look a UFO!”   We’ve talked about the possibility of UFO’s, aliens and the like,  and in doing so I wonder if we did not preclude them to cognitive dissonance- we believe and so do they.

Throw religion into the mix.  We are Catholic, conservative Republicans and so are our children.   A product of upbringing or ?

The grandparents instilled cognitive dissonance and I suspect we are passing it on too.  We justify good, bad, heaven, hell, what is acceptable, what is the norm, what is a conspiracy and what is reality.  Is not uncomfortable by any means to put on the tinfoil hat, unless of course there is a lightening storm.

The idea of “sour grapes” comes from the fable The Fox and the Grapes by Aesop (ca. 620–564 BCE). The fox is unable to reach the grapes, and, experiencing cognitive dissonance, reduces that dissonance by believing the grapes are sour. This example follows a pattern: one desires something, finds it unattainable, and reduces one’s dissonance by criticizing it. Jon Elster calls this pattern “adaptive preference formation.” -wiki

Maybe “adaptive preference formation” is nothing more than the brain justifying what it can’t have or processing what it is that we believe, or want to believe.

I happen to like a good conspiracy.  It helps me stay on my toes, to not take things for granted, to question, to learn, to share insights.  Too not be scared when a UFO lands on my farm!

The question is whether there is a parallel to be made with the individual level, where society would also influence the shape of the phenomenon, so that the interaction is also mutual at the sociological level? For instance, during the 1896-97 airship wave in United States (and Canada), the phenomenon was first described as strange lights in the sky, but it was reported by the press, nationwide, as “airships”. Could the social expectations to see an airship in the sky influenced the phenomenon so that it took an airship shape in the days and months that ensued? http://parasociology.blogspot.com/

Surely someone can come up with a theory for anything, but numerous conspiracy theories have come true.

The JFK assassination plot, aliens crash landing at Roswell, the 9/11 truth movement and charges of government surveillance are all an indelible part of our pop culture landscape and are by and large, total bullshit. So where does your average conspiracy buff go to learn about shadowy plots that aren’t pure tinfoil hattery? Look no further than: http://www.cracked.com/article_15974_7-insane-conspiracies-that-actually-happened.html#ixzz0vqRVK921

Valkyrie and MKULTRA actually did exist, maybe they still do with different players today.

There is no conspiracy behind the fact that you have to, “Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” –Lucille Ball, actress and comedienne, born today in 1911.

Does cognitive dissonance allow for a conspiracy that it’s okay to love someone else, convinced that they love you back, while you love yourself?

I love it, and a good conspiracy too.

The Senate has confirmed Elena Kagan, President Barack Obama’s solicitor general, as the newest Supreme Court justice.

Talk about a belated birthday gift for President Obama. 

Sen. Scott Brown announced Thursday that he won’t vote to confirm Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. “I approach the duty of voting on nominees to the United States Supreme Court with a deep sense of the constitutional responsibility of the Senate to provide its advice and consent. Elena Kagan’s nomination is my first opportunity to consider a nominee to the Supreme Court. First, let me say that I have a great deal of respect for Elena Kagan. She has an impressive resume, and in my private meeting with her I found her to be brilliant, as you might expect from a former dean of Harvard Law School. However, I cannot vote to confirm Elena Kagan. The reason is simple. I believe nominees to the Supreme Court should have previously served on the bench. Lacking that, I look for many years of practical courtroom experience to compensate for the absence of prior judicial experience. In Elena Kagan’s case, she is missing both. When it comes to the Supreme Court, experience matters. No classroom can substitute for the courtroom itself, where decisions are made that affect the day-to-day lives of American citizens, and where one’s judicial character and temperament is shaped in favor of the fair and just application of the law. The best umpires, to use the popular analogy, must not only call balls and strikes, but also have spent enough time on the playing field to know the strike zone. Therefore, I cannot support Elena Kagan’s nomination.” http://www.politico.com/politico44/perm/0810/not_this_time_6e067a7e-c218-4212-a99b-fae0140c6ce0.html

  M82_optical

An unknown object in galaxy M82 12 million light-years away is sending out radio waves.

“We don’t know what it is,” says co-discoverer Tom Muxlow of Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics near Macclesfield, UK. But its apparent sideways velocity is four times the speed of light. This “superluminal” motion occurs usually in high-speed jets of material bursting out by black holes. 

 “The new object, which appeared in May 2009, has left us scratching our heads – we’ve never seen anything quite like this before,” said Dr Muxlow. “The object turned on very rapidly within a few days and shows no sign of decaying in brightness over the first few months of its existence. http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2010/08/update-unknown-object-in-nearby-galaxy-sending-mysterious-radio-waves-.html

The object was discovered using the MERLIN network of radio telescopes in the UK.  MERLIN, operated by Jodrell Bank Observatory, is the Multi-Element Radio Linked Interferometer Network, an array of radio telescopes distributed around Great Britain. http://www.merlin.ac.uk/. With a maximum baseline of 217 km, the angular resolution of e-MERLIN at 5 GHz is 40 mas, comparable to the Hubble Space Telescope. http://www.e-merlin.ac.uk/summary.html

Hubba Wabba, that is one impressive telescope, but not as impressive as the findings.  Whatever the object is, it has not changed in brightness over the course of a year, and its spectrum is steady.  Its apparent sideways velocity is four times the speed of light!

It is a solid, liquid or gas?

M82 is not alone in the universe of sounds from space.

In September, 2003

NASA’s CHANDRA’s X-ray Observatory have found, for the first time, sound waves from a supermassive black hole. The “note” is the deepest ever detected from any object in our Universe. The tremendous amounts of energy carried by these sound waves may solve a longstanding problem in astrophysics.

The black hole resides in the Perseus cluster of galaxies located 250 million light years from Earth. In 2002, astronomers obtained a deep Chandra observation that shows ripples in the gas filling the cluster. These ripples are evidence for sound waves that have traveled hundreds of thousands of light years away from the cluster’s central black hole

…observations had revealed the prodigious amounts of light and heat created by black holes. “Now we have detected their sound, too,” says Andrew Fabian of the Institute of Astronomy in Cambridge, England http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2003/09sep_blackholesounds/ 

The full NASA press release is at http://chandra.harvard.edu/press/03_releases/press_090903.html

In July 2004, radio emissions were picked up by the Cassini spacecraft as it passed through Saturn’s rings.  The sounds uploaded and tweaked by a YouTube user, propose a speech pattern.  The original Link to NASA .WAV File for Download..
http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/multimedia…

Is it Alien Speech?

It sounds sort of like the high frequency pitch or tone that many people hear that remains elusive in its origin.  Written previously about in these two articles- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2010/07/29/haarp-what-is-making-that-noise/ and https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/22/rining-noise-mosquito-whine-haarp-aliens-elf-implant/.

It was believed that all magnetised planets emit radio waves into space from the polar regions thought to represent the rotation of the planet.  As it would turn, so it would make a noise, but it turns out that is not true on Saturn.

However, over the years the period of the pulsing of the radio emissions has varied, and since the rotation of a planet cannot be easily sped up or slowed down, the hunt for the source of the varying radio period has become one of the most perplexing puzzles inplanetary science. 

Nichols and team use images from the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope of Saturn’s auroras obtained between 2005-2009 to show that, not only do the radio emissions pulse, but the auroras beat in tandem with the radio.

“This is an important discovery for two reasons,” Dr Nichols said. “First, it provides a long-suspected but hitherto missing link between the radio and auroral emissions, and second, it adds a critical tool in diagnosing the cause of Saturn’s irregular heartbeat.”

Auroras, more commonly known as the “northern lights” on Earth, are caused when charged particles in space are funnelled along a planet’s magnetic field into the planet’s upper atmosphere near the poles, whereupon they impact theatmospheric particles and cause them to glow. This happens when a planet’s magnetic field is stressed by, for example, the buffeting from the stream of particles emitted by the Sun, or when moons such as Enceladus or Io expel material into the near-planet space.  http://www.dailygalaxy.com/my_weblog/2010/08/mystery-of-saturns-radio-pulse.html

Here is a recording of radio wave emissions from Saturn. As the solar wind passes across the ten mile thick rings, an oscillation is created and in turn emits a frequency or radio wave.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MvrduueveI&feature=player_embedded

We are receiving radio waves from M82, black holes, and planets.  SETI is on alert as always, looking for the WOW signal again.

With the recent solar storms from Sunspot 1092 this week, I wonder what noise our Earth is sending out into the galaxy and what it is we are really hearing.  As to what we are seeing, there are increasing reports across the country of multiple UFOs moving together and remaining in the sky for longer viewing durations.  http://www.examiner.com/x-2363-UFO-Examiner~y2010m8d5-Multiple-UFOs-typical-of-many-US-reports?cid=examiner-email
