NEW PREDICTION: 8/11/10 -- Occasionally the title says it all. This event may occur in January 2011.
|Storm With 165mph Winds Batters Scotland, With Schools Closed, Flights Cancelled And Rail Disrupted|
Thursday December 08, 2011
A fierce storm with winds of up to 165mph has battered northern parts of Britain, with people warned to stay indoors, schools forced to close and flights and rail links cancelled. Localised flooding has also caused major disruptions on roads - and more than 30,000 homes have been left without power.
In North Yorkshire, a RAF helicopter plucked a couple to safety after their car was swept away in floodwaters near Aysgarth. They were flown to hospital with suspected hypothermia. A third person was also rescued from his car in a separate incident near the village of Gunnerside. Police have advised against all travel until at least 2am Friday, when winds are expected to ease.
The Met Office earlier issued its strongest warning - a red alert - for winds in Scotland and warned parts of England and Wales to "be aware", as temperatures were expected to drop and snowfall was predicted as far south as Birmingham.
|It said the
Highland observing station at Glen Ogle reported a gust
of 104mph at 11am. The Met Office later tweeted that a
gust at the Aonach Mor ski area peaked at 137mph. But
further north in the Cairngorms, winds topped 165mph -
the fastest gust recorded in the UK since 1986 when
173mph was felt, also on the top of the summit.
A Met Office spokeswoman said: "We do not issue red warnings lightly. That is why people need to take heed of it and take appropriate action."
By 2.45pm Scottish Rail confirmed it was suffering severe disruptions on express routes and minor disruptions across Highland, central, southwest and sleeper services. It later suspended all routes from Edinburgh to Aberdeen, Perth and Dundee.
Flights to and from Scotland were also affected by the wild weather. Up to 5pm, Glasgow Airport had cancelled 37 flights and Edinburgh Airport said it was forced to cancel 21 flights with a further three also having to be diverted. Passengers have been advised to check the status of their flight before going to the airport.
blocked a country road in Scotland after a tree toppled
onto a house during the wild and windy weather battering
the area. Flood warnings were issued for parts of
northern England, with train speed restrictions in place
between Carlisle, Leeds and Skipton. In the Republic of
Ireland, Malin Head was hit by steady winds of 58mph and
gusts of 80mph, while ferry crossings to Cairnryan were
cancelled. Meanwhile, the Welsh Environment Agency warned
of strong winds, with heavy rain expected for both mid
and north Wales.
Scottish Hydro reported thousands of customers left without electricity in Argyll and the Western Isles. While ScottishPower said that, as of 3.30pm, as many as 12,000 homes in the Perthshire area were without power. Wind also disrupted power supplies in Dumfries, Central Scotland and the Clyde coast, it said. The electricity company added that engineers have been prevented from fixing the problem as roads are blocked by fallen trees and the high winds have made it too dangerous to climb up poles. The Forth Bridge was closed at around 10am, five hours ahead of an expected precautionary closure. The fierce wind was too much for the turbines at Ardrossan Wind Farm in North Ayrshire, Scotland.
Council-run schools and nurseries in the Borders, Renfrewshire, East Renfrewshire and Stirling council areas closed at lunchtime, while North Ayrshire recommended that parents keep children at home. All classes at Glasgow and Strathclyde universities were cancelled, while Glasgow Caledonian university remained opened but asked students to take travel advice. The Government said travel conditions could be "dangerous" and that road users may experience severe delays of several hours or more. In particular, high-sided vehicles, HGVs and buses were advised not to travel during the onslaught.
|Strong wind blasts have hit wide areas across Northern Ireland. Central Scotland Police assistant Chief Constable Allan Moffat extended the warning to motorists in northern and eastern areas of Scotland on Thursday night, as the severe weather spreads from the central belt. "This decision is based on the continued monitoring of weather activity which now predicts that the extreme winds will travel northwards and have a similar impact across the Northern, Grampian and Orkney Regions as has been occurring throughout the day in the central belt," he said. "We are advised that this weather will impact from about 7pm and continue until about 2am, in addition to storm force winds there will also be snow especially in inland areas giving blizzard conditions at times. "The wind will abate slightly after 2am with a possibility of ice thereafter. There are clear indications that the high winds will affect wide areas of those regions both inland and in coastal regions and in the Northern Isles."|
COMMENTS (12/10/11): Well, it's been almost a year since this prediction was to have taken place, but here it is, a PARTIALLY FULFILLED PREDICTION anyway, with France, Netherland, Belgium, and Germany not yet affected by this, or any other, storm ... yet. Have a look at the prediction below this one concerning a Russian warship ramming a British naval vessel ... and you can see why the cyclone hitting Scotland eleven months late is relevent. What if a piece of that one gets fulfilled? ... at the same time a great war is being prepared in the Middle East against Syria and Iran by the West, Russia is threatening Nato over its anti-ballistic missile defense systems deployed in the former Warsaw Pact countries, and a potential revolution is brewing in Moscow while certain Eurozone countries contemplate starting revolutions of their own.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/14/10 -- In January 2011, the first of several escalating incidents between Russian and British, Russian and US, and Russian and Nato naval vessels in the North Atlantic will occur. In the North Sea or Atlantic a Russian vessel, possibly a submarine, will ram a British patrol boat. It will be called an accident, but will likely be intentional. This may spark off a brief crisis, but not a war (unless the US or Israel are foolish enough to bomb Iran before the end of 2010).
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/10 -- Although the base 7 influence for January 2011 calls for student riots in London, we might anticipate that general riots involving the entire age spectrum could instead occur. These protests should be much worse than the bloody one that plagued London in early April 2009 where a major bank was stormed by angry citizens. This one will not only precipitate major rioting and violence but will also lead to bombings throughout the city.

COMMENTS (11/12/10): This sort of activity by British students is occurring a few months premature. As predicted, yet another bank has been stormed and damaged. Major rioting and clashes with police have also occurred as predicted. Bombings, apparently, await still in the future ... and what took place in Westminster is likely only a taste of things to come. This is a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
COMMENTS (12/14/10): This is a very high percentage PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULLED. All that is required for a 100% rating are bombings in the city of London by rioters, foreign anarchists seeking to make the mayhem worse, or even terrorists. The attack on Charles and Camilla is almost a "bombing" of sorts ... but not quite. But that event, and the much worse rioting that took place a few days ago compared to what happened in November, spikes the rating of this prediction immensely.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/29/10 -- The title here is rather amusing since the first series of riots predicted for the Czech Republic and/or Slovakia have yet to occur and the vector was August 2010. Then again, there were riots in Slobakia for one day on August 30 following a mass shooting in Bratislavia. Perhaps that incident was a close call. Then again, the predicted October 2010 revolutions in Europe may find the Czech Republic and Slovakia caught up in them. At this writing, September 29, 2010, there are mass anti-austerity protests ongoing thoughout many European cities, the nexus being Brussels, Belgium, with heavy turnouts also in Spain and Greece. Although intended to be held only today, this could well be the trigger for something bigger in the coming days. In any event, if Czech Republic and Slovakia are caught up in major protests and riots in 2010, it will erupt again with a vengeance in January 2011.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- Base 7 dating: January 2011.
Text to be posted when I have the time. Should this prediction be fulfilled beforehand, then the title and image above will have to suffice as the prediction.
|Protesters gather for fourth straight day in Romania|
2012 -- Updated 2310 GMT (0710 HKT)
Bucharest, Romania (CNN) -- Protesters seeking the ouster of Romanian President Traian Basescu and early elections gathered for a fourth straight day Sunday in a main square of Bucharest, the capital, and 18 other cities in the Eastern European nation. The demonstrations, which included clashes between police and protesters Saturday in University Square that injured 17 people, are the most serious since Basescu's election in 2004.
Some of the hundreds who showed up at the square on Sunday demanded justice and blamed the government and austerity measures for their poor living standards. "We have no financial security. My husband and I are retired but we are sharing our modest income with our children because they are jobless," said Rodica Ganea, who described being asked during hospital visits to pay for 'medicines, syringes, bandages, everything.' "I can't afford it," Ganea said.
Another woman, 64-year-old Marilena Salan, described similar circumstances. "My kids are university graduates but they are jobless," Salan said. "They are forced to break up their families, leave their kids home and go abroad to work. My nephews are growing up without their parents. This is unacceptable."
police fired tear gas to disperse thousands of protesters
gathered in University Square to demonstrate against
government austerity cuts. The protesters blocked
traffic, waving flags with the centers ripped out to
symbolize the 1989 communist revolution. Others carried
signs reading "Liberty" and "Down with
Police fired tear gas in an attempt to calm the crowd, and 17 people were hospitalized in the ensuing chaos with 50 fined for disturbing public peace.
The injured included a local journalist and five police officers, one severely injured when demonstrators stoned him.
The protests broke out Thursday after the resignation of Deputy Health Minister Raed Arafat, an opponent of health care reforms proposed by the government.
Facing public pressure, Basescu decided to scrap the reforms Friday, saying he made the decision after realizing that a majority of those in the medical system opposed the change. "The hospitals don't want the change, the (doctors) don't want the change and neither does the emergency health care system," Basescu said.
had argued that the proposal favored the private health
care system by allowing access to government funds while
the state-funded system lacks financial aid.
The protests follow several unpopular measures taken by the government over the past two years. After receiving a loan of 20 billion euros from the International Monetary Fund and the European Union in 2009, the government cut salaries in the public sector by 25% a year later to enforce austerity measures recommended by the IMF.
Prime Minister Emil Boc said on Sunday that a new series of debates on the health care issue will start Monday, with the intention of creating a new health care law.
Over the past three days, protesters also held demonstrations in other cities including Cluj, Timisoara, Iasi and Targu Mures.
COMMENTS (1/15/12): It appears the Western media is largely oblivious to this event. Little wonder when I have a PREDICTION FULFILLED (and IN PROGRESS), so few people notice.

Wolfgang Johannes Bekh on the Seer of Waldviertel ~
has already been mentioned that he saw several regional wars and
certain warlike actions before
the beginning of World War III. For example he saw wars in Yugoslavia and Bulgaria and
the destruction of New York among other things ...
OLD PREDICTION: 7/31/03, UPDATED 12/30/09, UPDATED 6/19/10, UPDATED 9/30/10 -- Not mentioned by such prophets as Alois Irlmaier or the Seer of Waldviertel is the region of Albania. In the prophecies of Nostradamus, Albania figures quite prominently as a future adversary. The problem is we cannot be absolutely sure if the Albanians of his quatrains are the Albanian nationals or the Kosovar Albanians of Serbia and Macedonia -- or both.
The base 7 vector for troubles beginning in Albania proper is January 2011. This may take the form of a civil war and not go any father than that, burning out sometime in April 2011. However, if the Kosovar Albanians are in some way linked with Albania's civil war, the conflict may then spread to Kosovo and Serbia. Line 2 warns that this war will then spread southwards from Kosovo into Macedonia and, quite possibly, Greece. Still, if this is a limited conflict, it may well burn out after several months much as the war in Macedonia did in 2001.

Thousands of opposition protesters participate in an anti-government rally Friday in Tirana to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Sali Berisha over corruption allegations. The poster reads "Change, Sali Mubarak" as protesters call on Sali Berisha to resign from office like Egyptian leader President Mubarak.

NEW PREDICTION: 7/25/10 -- Planet X will begin to exert its gravitational influence on the tectonic plates and volcanic calderas of Earth much more noticably in 2011, 2012, and 2013. In January 2011 many thousands may die in Peru during one of the great quakes of the year.
Strong 7.0-quake hits northern Peru
LIMA, Aug. 24 (Xinhua) -- A powerful earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter scale hit northern Peru on Wednesday at 12:46:01 local time (17:46:01 GMT), the Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP) said.
According to preliminary information, there were no reports of any casualties in the quake, but some damages were seen, Peru's National Institute for Civil Defense said in a preliminary report.
The IGP said that two minor aftershocks were felt within minutes of the quake, which lasted between 5 and 10 seconds.
The epicenter was registered about 550 kilometers northeast of the capital city of Lima and 79 km north of the town of Pucallpa, which is located in the province of Coronel Portillo in the Peruvian Amazon forest close to the Brazilian border, the IGP said.
The IGP said that the epicenter of the quake was recorded at a depth of 149 km and the quake could be felt in the neighboring provinces of Huanuco, Amazonas, San Martin and Loreto, and as far away as Lima.
The quake was also felt in the Ica province along the Brazilian border, the IGP said, adding that telephone lines and electricity to Pucallpa was temporarily cut off.
The Civil Defense Institute of Peru said in its preliminary report that immediately after the quake was felt, the local residents in Pucallpa fled their houses and took up refuge in safe locations, avoiding any fatalities.
|7.0-magnitude earthquake strikes
August 24, 2011 By the CNN Wire Staff
A 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck northern Peru on Wednesday, authorities said.
The quake's epicenter was about 350 miles (570 kilometers) northeast of the country's capital, Lima, and 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Pucallpa, Peru, the U.S. Geological Survey reported.
Authorities at the Geophysics Institute of Peru said no victims or significant damage had been reported. At least one aftershock had been recorded, the institute said.
Lima residents felt a brief, but strong, tremor.
The quake struck around 12:45 p.m. near Peru's border with Brazil at a depth of about 90 miles (145 kilometers).

NEW PREDICTION: 7/25/10 -- It will develop quickly. Russia will wage a war that will last a month or more in Azerbaijan in January 2011. It may happen because of unrest again between Azerbaijan and Armenia, it may be that Russia will side against Iran in some dispute and the Iranians will find allies in their Azeri brothers, or it may be a Caspian Sea oil grab ... don't know. It will be brief as long as Nato and the US stay out of it ... otherwise it will be a quagmire that will become yet another catalyst towards a global war in 2012.

OLD PREDICTION: 11/19/03, UPDATED 12/30/09 -- This person will be well-known, but likely a more major voice in the past than now. Probably in her early-40s to late 50s. Not to be confused with the prediction below concerning a famous blonde female icon. The identity of this person is unknown. She will have written and sung a number of hit songs during the course of her career. She will probably die from natural causes in February 2011. It will be quite sudden and unexpected; again reminiscent of Michael Jackson and Brittany Murphy. Something unnatural, but medical -- such as anorexia -- may even be a possibility.
SINGER/SINGWRITER SINEAD O'CONNOR ATTEMPTS SUICIDE TWICE
O'Connor Admitted To Hospital Following Serious Bout Of
Depression -- Star had admitted to suicide attempts..
By Claire Rutter On January 18, 2012
Following the second breakdown of her marriage, troubled singer Sinead O'Connor has been taken to hospital to be treated for depression.
The 'Nothing Compares 2 U' singer told her fans that she would be "off the radar" for a few weeks while she seeks treatment.
Last week, we reported Sinead's desperate tweets where she suggested that she needed urgent medical attention as she pleaded for someone to recommend a good doctor because she was in "danger".
The Irish star recently split for the second time from her husband Barry Herridge, who she married in December last year.
Since then, Sinead has admitted to trying to attempt suicide twice during their relationship and it has been reported that they called it a day, following these revelations.
Yesterday, in a series of tweets she wrote: "Gonna be off radar for few weeks. But will be back. Worry not. : )."
"im going to hospital. Treatment for depression. Not at all well. But they will put me back together quick," she continued. "I be grand in few weeks. was right decision to call hospital. They fab. Good team. I be me again in 2 weeks they say. (sic)"

SINEAD O'Connor has revealed she took an overdose while in Los Angeles last Thursday and almost tried to kill herself this week, Contactmusic.com reported.
The Irish singer-songwriter, who made a desperate plea for psychiatric help on Twitter yesterday, told The Sun: "I took an overdose. God wants me around - though I can't think why."
Sinead O'Connor Admits To Attempting Suicide Twice Last Week
By Claire Rutter On January 12, 2012
After her alarming tweets yesterday, Sinead O'Connor has revealed that she's tried to commit suicide twice in the last week.
The 'Nothing Compares 2 U' singer was asking for psychiatric help through the social-networking site yesterday, suggesting that she was in "danger" and now, has told The Sun, that she tried to end her life on Thursday (January 5) and Tuesday (January 10).
"I took an overdose," she told the newspaper. "God obviously wants me around - though I can't think why."
The Irish singer tweeted her fans last night that she was now in possession of "numbers, contacts, etc now and appointments" to help her find the right treatment.
O'Connor, 45, also wrote about the effect her depression had on her new husband Barry Herridge. "so me start meds for few weeks just they say to lift out of apres marital abuse of innocent hubby by nasty ppl depression. (sic)
"hard if u see someone u love bein hurt cus of u is all.. f*x self esteem.. which aint always massive for any of us... he gentle soft heart.. not bitch like me.. he a flower.. me nuh like see him hurt.. he me angel."
But when asked by a fan what medication she had been given, the Irish singer said it was "low doses" for six weeks.
Sinead OConnor Tried to Commit Suicide
Jan 12, 2012 4:10pm
Somethings wrong with Sinead OConnor. She tried to commit suicide on Wednesday.
I took an overdose, the 45-year-old singer told The Sun newspaper, not explaining what exactly she overdosed on. OConnor posted a series of desperate tweets Wednesday, asking her followers to help her find a psychiatrist who can help me today. i desperately need to get back on meds today, she wrote. am in serious danger.
Fans came to her rescue. She thanked them hours after posting her original messages, got in touch with a psychiatrist and got medication.
I just had to make a cry for help, she told The Sun. God obviously wants me around though I cant think why.
The mother of four got married for a fourth time last month, split from her new husband after 16 days, then got back together with him last week. In 2007, OConnor revealed on Oprah that she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003 and had attempted suicide in 1999.
COMMENTS (4/29/12): There is no longer any question that singer/songwriter Sinead O' Connor attempted suicide, not once, but twice. One method was drugs overdose, we know ... the other method we do not know. In September 2011 there was some question that her threats on Twitter to commit suicide was a CLOSE CALL or a RED ALERT. That is now passed. What has happened to her since is a most definite CLOSE CALL. For reasons I give in my comments below from September, which included the fact that Sinead attempted suicide on December 8, 1999, I continue to believe that her suicide tweets, and now actual suicide attempts, are echoes of a tragic event that may yet happen to her in December 2013. Even now she has cancelled a tour because of a very serious breakdown and may be hospitalised. The ripple effect from December 2013 continues, it would appear. Note also that Nostradamus appears to have foreseen this (see September 2011 comments below).
SUICIDE WATCH: THIS COULD HAVE BEEN VERY BAD ... CLOSE CALL OR RED ALERT FOR SINEAD O'CONNOR
O'Connor says disturbing 'suicide' comments on Twitter
were 'a cry for help'
By Holly Thomas and
1:51 AM on 18th September 2011
Shocking messages on Sinead O'Connor's Twitter page sparked fears for her mental state, but she has since insisted that the posts were 'a cry for help' and she is 'very happy'.
The 44-year-old singer wrote a post on her website in which she attempted to explain her actions, and said she was not sorry for the disturbing tweets. She wrote: 'I am not at all sorry that I wrote what I did on twitter. It was a cry for help and help was received. So it was worth it. I have no shame around the fact that I can be shot into suicidal feelings by certain people's treatment of me. I am no different to any other person, I therefore act as I believe any other person should be free to.'
In the lengthy post, she also encouraged others who felt suicidal to follow suit and not be ashamed to admit it. She said: 'There is no shame in feeling suicidal. Nor in anyone knowing that wave passes over you sometimes. No one should be judged badly for however it is they choose to make their cry of help.'
She cited being upset about the break-up of her marriage as one of the things that got her down, and said people calling her crazy only made things worse. She said 'I have often and still often struggle with suicidal feelings when I am subjected to this 'mad' Sinead O'Connor business. It's is wrong. Degrading. Insulting. A breach of my human rights as I see it, and most disrespectful.'
The singer wrote several disturbing statements after a visit to her psychiatrist on Wednesday. She wrote that she wished suicide would 'kill' her, and asked her followers for suggestions as to how she could commit suicide without her children finding out.
She wrote: 'Had to go psychiatrist for routine renew prescription etc. She says I'm a bad mum and mental for talking so openly about sex in public. All this s*** we're not supposed to say. Including suicidal feelings, sex, etc. U just get treated like a crazy person. I want to go To heaven SO bad. Have for yrs' she continued.
Sinead even indicated that if she were able to kill herself without her children knowing, she would do so. The singer has four children, ageing between four and 24.
'But I don't wanna abandon my kids. But if I cud die without them knowing I did myself I wud,' she wrote. She then entreated her followers to offer 'help', adding: 'Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself. Now I f****** wish suicide wud kill me' she said.
She appeared to imply that her breakup with husband Steve Cooney was one of the causes for her intense sadness, and that she had struggled for the past month maintaining a façade of happiness.
'+ truth is I only did all this for the last month cuz I was so depressed about me marriage breaking up an I got tired of crying,' she wrote. 'And tired of thinking I'm a s**t person all day. So I thought I'd turn it into something funny. And it worked! And I had more fun last 4 wks.'
Sinead split with Steve Cooney, who was her third husband, in March.
The star has since revealed on Twitter that she is 'desperate' for sex, and this morning added: 'Must announce boyfriend search very much still on. If any1 wants a suicidal tourettes ridden fat ugly lunatic with a big fat flappy *****..'
She achieved worldwide success in 1990 with her hugely successful single Nothing Compares 2 U.
She attempted suicide 11 years ago on her 33rd birthday.
Police visit Sinead O'Connor after suicidal tweets
'Badly wish cud die without it ruining my kids lives,' singer posts on Twitter
9/16/2011 8:30:43 PM ET
This is one of those rare situations in which we wish that a celeb's Twitter account had been hacked.
But no, Sinad O'Connor was the one tweeting increasingly disturbing thoughts Wednesday night, capping a seemingly suicidal rant off with, "Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself...Without my kids finding out I did it deliberately pls tell me asa f--kin p."
While the outspoken Irish singer appears to be in better spirits today, having posted on her blog a "revised love advert" seeking male companionship, her morbid tweets were apparently enough to concern her fans and get the cops involved.
According to IrishCentral.com, local police in Bray, County Wicklow, paid a visit to O'Connor's house after receiving a call from someone who had read her tweets.
"Had to go psychiatrist for routine renew prescription etc. She says I'm a bad mum and mental for talking so openly about sex in public," the Grammy winner typed Wednesday. "So now I wish suicide wud kill me."
"All this s--t we're not supposed to say. Including suicidal feelings, sex, etc. U just get treated like a crazy person. I want to go ... To heaven SO bad. Have for yrs ... But I don't wanna abandon my kids. But if I cud die without them knowing I did it myself I wud. An I know every1 will say I'm a c--- for saying that .. But f--- all this s--- we're 'not supposed to say'. I'm so tired. 24 yrs ... Of being treated like a crazy person. Can't manage any more. Badly wish cud die without it ruining my kids lives."
And perhaps the supportive tweets she received back from fanssuch as, "If anyone knows the lovely, clever, funny [Sinad O'Connor] can they go and give her the hugest hug" and "hey girl I love you so much. I wish that I could come over and give you a big hug"helped a bit.
Today, O'Connor's brash, self-deprecating sense of humor was cranking on all four cylinders again, as she told her Twitter followers, "revised man add is now on my site. Please grab link and tweet (as the actress said to the bishop while bashing him)."
In October 2007, O'Connor told Oprah Winfrey that she attempted suicide on her 33rd birthday in 1999, and had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003. She has referred to herself as a lesbian, but married third husband Steve Cooney in July 2010.
She and Cooney split up in May, and O'Connor has attributed much of her recent unhappiness to the breakup. Her comments about wanting to catch a new man have just been her putting up a front, she says.
"+ truth is I only did all this for the last month cuz I was so depressed about me marriage breaking up an I got tired of crying," she also wrote Wednesday. "And tired of thinking I'm a s--- person all day. So I thought I'd turn it into something funny. And it worked! And I had more fun last 4 wks ... Then had for yrs. And had self-esteem. So when I went into doc I was happy. Now I wish I was dead. No hope. Supposed to leave psychiatrist ... Feeling happy .. Or at least hopeful. She crushes me. She's done it b4. Ruins me f--kin life. Anyway.. If any1 knows how I can kill myself ... Without my kids finding out I did it deliberately pls tell me asa f----n p."
COMMENTS (9/17/11): Sinead O'Connor better fits the profile of a female singer/songwriter "probably in her early-40s to late 50s" (O'Connor is 44) than Amy Winehouse who was only 27 at the time of her death. O'Connor also was "a more major voice in the past than now." Indeed, from 1987 until her badly bungled live SNL appearance in 1992, Sinead O'Connor was a pop/rock music icon whose fame came close to eclipsing that of Madonna's. Although her career has declined significantly since that unfortunate night nearly twenty years ago, O'Connor has continued to write, record, and produce a steady flow of albums; still appears at concerts; and still retains a significant fanbase to this day.
Had she acted out her self-destructive impulses posted on Twitter, it is likely the reverberations would have been felt far and wide. The music world would have had reason to mourn another of its stars yet again. There is good cause to be concerned still, given the fact that Sinead attempted suicide on December 8, 1999. December 8, 1980, by the way, was when ex-Beatle and Beatles founder John Lennon was murdered. Her suicide attempt, therefore, occurred on the 19th anniversary of Lennon's tragic death. In December 2013, it will be 14 (2 x 7) years since her last actual attempt ... and that is not all that far away ... which may mean that these suicide tweets are echoes of an event in a possible near future. If so, Ms O'Connor should in all seriousness be watched, however much she may wish to play down her dark chatter as the venting of self-destructive "feelings" and as pleas for help (especially since some of these cries for help were actually worded as desperately seeking advice as to how to kill herself rather than talking her out of it). Therefore, despite the rambling retraction she published on her website to-day, we can only guess how serious she actually was, and what exactly she may have been planning before the police intervened. In addition, people can mock her Twitter postings as attention-getting ploys all they want; once a person has a history of attempted suicide, there is always a danger of relapse. This was not a joke.
It is hard to say whether this was a CLOSE CALL or a RED ALERT.
Getting Nostradamus into the act might not be the wisest thing, but I have always had a weird feeling about Sinead O'Connor ever since I read the following presage for the first time:
Nostradamus, Presage 101 ~
inonder, à la Razée perte,
flooded, loss to the Shaven Female,
It is hard to know what is going on here; but it looks like at a time of great flood, a woman, renown for her shaven head, will leap from a wall to her death in an attempt to escape some situation. Her property, though threatened by water, will remain intact. She will either die from the fall or else she will drown. Either that or she will escape someone or a group pursuing her, perhaps at a wealthy residence, by jumping from a wall, only to be captured and killed in some manner. There are a number of variations possible, each pointing to accidental death, suicide, murder, or execution. It must also be remembered that, to some, suicide appears to be the only means of escape from their troubles. Some commentators believe the "Shaven Female" to be a nun or Mother Superior. Then again, lest we forget, that singer/songwriter O'Connor became Mother Bernadette Mary at a ceremony staged by the breakaway Latin Tridentine church in Lourdes in May 1999. The fact that Sinead has often been photographed wearing a "mantle" like the one above would tend to add to my concern.
It matters little that Sinead O'Connor is no longer bald nor has severely shorn hair. That is how she is best remembered; that is what her image was when she was famous ... and still for a number of years after her until her popularity utterly faded. This quatrain may apply to someone else, I suppose ... perhaps the mysterious woman of religion who will die in flames in 2012.
didn't kill Amy Winehouse, what did?
A recently released toxicology report does little to solve the mystery of the singer's tragic death and prompts new theories
August 25, 2011, at 3:26 PM
One month after Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Camden, London, home, the singer's passing still remains a mystery. A toxicology report released this week by Winehouse's family reveals that no illegal substances were found in the Grammy-winner's system when she died, seemingly debunking a theory that the singer famous for her drug addictions had overdosed. Suggestions that her death was related to alcohol withdrawal have also been cast in doubt, given that traces of alcohol were found in her body. Still, that's hardly conclusive. Here, 4 potential causes of death:
Sources: ABC News, Chicago Tribune (2), International Business Times, LA Times, NY Times
People: No illegal drugs in Winehouse
08/23/2011 04:58:55 PM PDT
There were no illegal drugs in Amy Winehouse when the 27-year-old singer died July 23, her family said Tuesday.
Spokesman Chris Goodman said in a statement: "Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death." TMZ reported that a source close to the family would not comment on whether any prescription drugs were found in her system.
The statement also said, "Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death." It concluded, "The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October."
Singer Amy Winehouse found dead
July 24, 2011 -- Updated 0142 GMT (0942 HKT)
(CNN) -- Singer Amy Winehouse, infamous for erratic public behavior, arrests and drug problems, was found dead at her apartment in London Saturday, police and her publicist confirmed. She was 27.
Her death came less than two months after her latest release from a rehabilitation program and weeks following a disastrous performance where she was booed off a Belgrade, Serbia, stage by disappointed fans.
Winehouse died at the same age as four other music legends. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison each died of drug overdoses when they were 27. Kurt Cobain was 27 when he committed suicide, soon after his release from rehab.
London Police Superintendent Raj Kohli said at this "early stage" of the investigation the death remained "unexplained."
"I am aware of reports suggesting this death is the result of a suspected drugs overdose, but I would like to re-emphasise that no post-mortem examination has yet taken place and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death," Kohli said.
Police were called to her Camden Square apartment just after 4 p.m. Saturday in response to report of "a woman found deceased," he said. "On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene," he said. She was later identified as Winehouse.
Winehouse spokesman Chris Goodman confirmed her death for CNN Saturday. "Everyone who is involved with Amy is shocked and devastated," Goodman said. "Our thoughts are with her family and friends. The family will issue a statement when ready."
The "Rehab" singer had a history of battling drugs and alcohol and recently left a British rehab program that a representative said was intended to prepare her for scheduled European concerts. But she cut short the European concert tour last month following a concert in Belgrade, where she staggered around the stage and stumbled through several songs. Audience members booed Winehouse off the stage that night just a few songs into the concert, the first of the tour.
Winehouse spokeswoman Tracey Miller told CNN at the time that the singer "agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home."
"Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen," representative Chris Goodman said in a statement in May. A new, but almost identical, similar statement appeared on her website Saturday, saying "Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances." None of her representatives immediately responded to CNN requests for comment.
Winehouse's soulful, throaty vocals brought the British musician stardom in 2007, but her off-stage life gained her notoriety. The lyrics of her songs, especially the hit "Rehab," chronicled her troubled life. The song, in which she sang "They tried to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no," helped form the public's view of Winehouse. "I don't care enough about what people think of me to conform to anything," she said in a 2007 CNN interview.
Winehouse, born in London in 1983, became a picture of a tattooed teenage rebel after she was expelled from a prestigious performing arts school. Her first album, "Frank," debuted in 2003, when the singer-songwriter was 19. International success came with her 2007 album "Back To Black," which included the single "Rehab." She dominated the 2008 Grammys, winning five awards that night and delivering, via satellite from London, a strong performance of "Rehab."
Winehouse's volatile marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil took a toll on the singer's career. The couple divorced in 2009 after a stormy two years filled by drug addiction and arrests.
Winehouse's parents went public with their efforts to help their daughter, telling the London Telegraph in 2009 that she was on the road to recovery. "A gradual recovery, which is good," Winehouse's father, Mitch, told the Telegraph. "With slight backward steps -- not drug backward steps, more drink backward steps if you follow my drift. I think that will be the pattern of recovery."
Her father got word of his daughter's death Saturday while in New York preparing for a Monday night show with his band at the Blue Note club, his publicist said. He immediately canceled the performance and caught a flight back to London, the publicist said.
The organization that awards the Grammys issued a statement Saturday calling Winehouse "a dynamic performer and musician who seamlessly blended rock, jazz, pop, and soul and created a sound all her own."
"Her rich, soulful and unique voice reflected her honest songwriting and earned her a devoted fan following, critical acclaim, and the genuine respect and admiration of her musical peers," the Recording Academy statement said. "She will forever be remembered for her immense talent, and her music will live on for generations to come. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family, friends, and fans during this difficult time."
Amy Winehouse death: Neighbour in Camden heard screaming and howling
Saturday, July 23, 2011 9:20 PM
People who knew Amy Winehouse in Camden, north London, have been speaking after the singers death at the age of 27.
One of her neighbours said he is convinced she died in the early hours of Friday because he heard screaming. I think something happened that night. It sounded like some weird sexual game. There was screaming and howling.
The man, who would not be named, said he was woken by the sound at around 2am that night. It just sounded really weird and my son said he heard some kind of drum beating.
This afternoon he heard one of Winehouses friends crying in the house, and realised she was dead. He believes a friend left her at home after a night out, and returned this afternoon to find her body. Shes been quite low-profile and thats why, when I heard these sounds - screaming - I thought it was unlike her. I said to my son Maybe shes taken a bad drug.
He said he saw her about three weeks ago being helped into the house by her minders, and was unable to walk at 10am. She couldnt walk, she could hardly put one foot in front of the other.
Her cat, Sky, would come into his house for food and to sleep, he said.
Local restaurant owner Ze Silva, 56, said Winehouse would come in as regularly as twice a week. She saw her last Tuesday and said she had stopped drinking. She had nothing to drink. She said to me Darling, dont give me any alcohol, Im not drinking any more. She was normal. She would speak to everyone, have pictures taken with the kids, give autographs to the kids. She was a good girl, Im very sad.
Winehouse would go to the restaurant, A Baia, to play snooker with her bodyguards and would send them to get her takeaway fried breakfasts.
Flowers, teddies and candles had been left next to the police tape blocking off Camden Square. One card read: You will not be forgotten by Camden. We all love you and will continue to love you. Your legend lives on.
COMMENTS (7/24/11): Poor Amy Winehouse. I know many people would probably say this was bound to happen sooner or later, but evidence is mixed as to whether Winehouse was truly on the road to recovery or sliding down the spiral of death. This is the death of a major rock and blues singer, however tarnished her star may have been. This was no has-been from the past. And at this writing her death is a mystery. People assume it was drug-related, but the police have warned against such assumptions until the autopsy has been completed.
Based on the eyewitness account of a neighbour and friend of the deceased, there was howling and screaming coming from her house ... all to the accompanyment of a drum beating ... during the early AM (post-midnight) a few hours just before people were seen leaving then later a few returning, some of them weeping. I am very much afraid that this may have been a murder. Worse, Amy Winehouse may even have been a human sacrifice to Satan by TPTB. This was not "a wild party." Some sort of ritual was involved since only a drum was heard and no musical instruments. The howling voices were male. The screaming was of a female.
The cops may end up saying it was drugs, but I think no one will be sure.
This has happened on the heels of the very mysterious and bizarre death of Rebecca Nalepa, girlfiriend of billionaire Jonah Shacknai, who was found hanging naked, her wrists and ankles bound, from a balcony window. There had been a "loud party" in the mansion only a few hours before her death.
Something strange, and frightening, is definitely going on.
Because she was 27, the death of Amy Winehouse may have rebooted the dreaded Brian Jones-Jim Morrison pattern: Rolling Stones founding member Brian Jones, 27, was found dead in his swimming pool in July 1969 (6 x 7 = 42 years ago). To this day no one knows if he was high on drugs and tried to breathe underwater and drowned or if he was murdered. Next came Jimi Hendrix, 27, in September 1970 (September 2012?) followed by Janis Joplin, 27, in October 1970 (October 2012?). Jim Morrison, 27, founder and lead singer of the Doors, died in July 1971 (July 2013?).
Three past events on the current base 7 timeline were used to determine this prediction, two of them strange deaths: Brian Jones (1969), Karen Carpenter (1983), and Laura Nyro (1997). Let us not forget that less than a month after Brian Jones was found dead, actress Sharon Tate and four others were murdered by the Manson Family. Just a thought as we move soon into the month of August.
PREDICTION FULFILLED ... again unfortunately ... and five months later than the February 2011 vector.
Teena Marie dies at 54
December 27, 2010 -- Updated 0354 GMT (1154 HKT)
(CNN) -- Teena Marie, a celebrated R&B singer-songwriter, was found dead Sunday at her California home, her manager said. Born Mary Christine Brockert in Santa Monica, California, the 54-year-old artist famously paired with late funk legend Rick James and was nominated four times for a Grammy Award, according to her official website. Marie was found dead by her daughter after apparently dying in her sleep, manager Mike Gardner said.
"Teena was a black voice trapped in a white body," said Cathy Hughes, founder of Radio One,a broadcasting company that targets African-American and urban listeners. "I would always tell her that she was one of the greatest vocalists of our time."
Among her songs were "Lovergirl," "Portuguese Love," "Ooo La La La," and "I'm a Sucker for Your Love."
While no cause of death has been released, the singer's publicist Lynn Jeter said that Marie suffered a grand mal seizure -- a neurological event, marked by loss of consciousness and violent muscle contractions, according to the Mayo Clinic -- a month ago. "Luckily, someone was there," Jeter said of that seizure. "The ambulance took her to the hospital, and on the way she had another seizure."
The publicist said that she had a "great" conversation on Saturday with Marie, who told her that she was excited about heading to Atlanta to perform this week -- in what would have been her first performance since the seizure.
Marie sang under various record labels, including Motown, Epic, Stax Records and Cash Money Classics, since bursting on the scene as a 19-year-old, according to her website. Her last studio album, Congo Square, featured several collaborations.
Eddie Levert, founder of the vocal group The O'Jays, praised Marie as both a singer and mother. "There are a lot of black people who swore by her and believed in her, as far as her music was concerned," he said. "She was a good mom, and to me, that is saying a lot.'"
COMMENTS (5/7/11): For some reason I missed matching this with the prediction. Teena Marie was a prolific artist in the late 1970s and 1980s, performing with Rick James several times and the Mary Janes Girls. She wrote a lot of hits that she performed and that others performed. Here death was quite premature; she was only 54 (around the age I specified). The cause of death was rather strange as well. PREDICTION FULFILLED ... unfortunately ... and two months earlier than the February 2011 vector.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 9/30/10 -- If one looks closely at past trends, one can find the potential for good news as well as doom and gloom. I could focus on this aspect of things a lot more if I had the time. This prediction focuses on an historic event: a famous female politician in prison for many years will finally gain her freedom. This woman, I believe, will be Aung San Suu Kyi who has been either in prison or under house arrest for the most part since 1990. She has had short periods of freedom, only to be cast back into detention once again. Her current imprisonment has been ongoing since 2003 and the ruling junta in Myanmar, if anything, seems hardened in their resolve to keep things that way. Prospects are more promising that this will change in February 2011 when she will be released for the last time, finally gaining permanent freedom, never again to be placed under arrest or detention. Her position in Myanmar will then become similar to that of Nelson Mandela after his release in 1990, ending 27 years of imprisonment in South Africa.
|Police and witnesses: Aung
San Suu Kyi released
November 13, 2010 -- Updated 1208 GMT (2008 HKT)
Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi was released from house
arrest Saturday to a throng of thousands of supporters
trying to reach out and shake her hand. "I'm very
happy to see you all again," she told the crowd
gathered near her home in Yangon. Witnesses and police
said she had been released. Her lawyer Nyan Win went into
her house, witnesses said. At party headquarters in the
same city, hundreds waited near her National League for
Democracy. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate has spent 15 of
the past 21 years under house arrest because of her fight
for democracy in the nation formerly known as Burma.
Recently, she had little outside human contact except for two maids and visits from her doctor. Sometimes, she spoke to supporters over the wall of her compound. Security has been stepped up in Myanmar, but it was unclear whether that was because of the country's first elections in two decades Sunday. It makes "perfect sense" for the regime to free her since she's "no longer an electoral threat to them, said Benjamin Zawacki, Amnesty International's Myanmar specialist. She was unable to participate in the elections because of a recent court conviction.
Nobel laureate Suu Kyi freed, ready to speak to supporters in Myanmar
Globe and Mail
Sunday, Nov. 14, 2010 12:31AM EST
Myanmar's main opposition leader, Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, arrived early Sunday at her party's headquarters in Rangoon, the capital, and prepared to deliver her first major address to supporters in years.
A large crowd had gathered in anticipation after the world's most famous prisoner of conscience was released Saturday evening local time (early Saturday in Canada) from house arrest amid scenes of jubilation.
Hundreds of supporters were already gathered outside her residence Saturday when a convoy of three official cars arrived to read her the release order. When armed riot police took down barricades outside her residence, the crowd surged forward to the gate of her property and began chanting: Come out, come out Aung San Suu Kyi!
As news spread that the woman known as The Lady was free, the crowd outside her residence quickly grew into the thousands.
Wearing a lilac dress, the diminutive 65-year-old walked out to meet her supporters, smiling and shaking hands.
We must work together in unison to achieve our goal, she told them, struggling to make herself heard over the chants and cheers of her supporters. Some held mobile phones over their heads to take some of the first photographs of their hero in the last seven years.
Ms. Suu Kyi told her supporters to come to the headquarters of her National League for Democracy on Sunday, where she said she will give a speech. Shes also widely expected to visit Rangoons iconic Shwedagon Pagoda, where she famously addressed massive pro-democracy crowds in 1988.
Trucks filled with riot police were parked around the corner when Ms. Suu Kyi came out to meet her supporters but government forces made no move to break up the spontaneous celebration.
Her release follows weeks of speculation, and comes just days after a party affiliated with the ruling junta claimed a massive victory in elections held Nov. 7 that have been widely condemned as fraudulent.
Freed Burma democracy leader Suu Kyi addresses crowd
14 November 2010 00:54 ET
Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has addressed a large crowd of her supporters, a day after her release from house arrest.
"The basis of democratic freedom is freedom of speech," she said at her party's offices, Reuters reports.
Ms Suu Kyi was allowed to leave her Rangoon house when her sentence expired on Saturday. She had been detained for most of the past two decades.
World leaders and human rights groups have reacted with joy at her release.

NEW PREDICTION: 1/1/10 -- Similar to the civil violence that plagued Paris and adjacent regions in France in 2005-06, protestors will resume torching and bombing cars and mass rioting. This should begin happening around February 2011 and will likely evolve into the prophesied civil war that shall plague France.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- Well, it is certainly premature to say the UK is experiencing its "worst winter in over 50 years" ... but it is off to a good start at this writing (12/1/10) as photo above illustrates. We should know by February 2011 if this prediction will be true or not, if not sooner.
|Big freeze: Coldest
December for 100 years brings travel chaos as holiday
Coldest December since records began as temperatures plummet to minus 10C bringing travel chaos across Britain
By Daily Mail Reporter
6:31 PM on 17th December 2010
Swathes of Britain skidded to a halt today as the big freeze returned - grounding flights, closing rail links and leaving traffic at a standstill. And tonight the nation was braced for another 10in of snow and yet more sub-zero temperatures - with no let-up in the bitterly cold weather for at least a month, forecasters have warned.
The Arctic conditions are set to last through the Christmas and New Year bank holidays and beyond and as temperatures plummeted to -10c (14f) the Met Office said this December was almost certain to become the coldest since records began in 1910. The average temperature for December so far is -0.7c, making it on course to be the coldest since records began in 1910.
The latest snowfall
carpeted large swathes of Britain today - with up to 5in
falling in places - paralysing roads and rail, and
forcing airports and schools to
By the start of next week temperatures are set to fall to as low as -15c (5f). Met Office forecaster Barry Gromett said the average mean temperature for the first two weeks of this month was -0.7c. The coldest ever average for this time of year - recorded in December 1981 - was 0.2c.
All rail routes through York were disrupted today, with Northern Rail having to replace trains with buses between Cattal and York. Problems at Romford in east London led to morning rush-hour delays to National Express East Anglia train services into London's Liverpool Street station. Southeastern will be running a contingency timetable tomorrow following difficulties in the Ramsgate and Ashford areas in Kent, while overhead wire problems are causing delays on the c2c London to Tilbury and Southend line. In Wales, no services were running today between Newport and Hereford and bad road conditions meant that replacement buses could not operate. There was also no service between Holyhead and Bangor.
It is going to remain very cold right through to the middle of next week with widespread overnight frosts and ice. Temperatures are likely to drop into the minus teens in places, with towns and cities as cold as -8c (18f).Its going to stay like this throughout Christmas and New Year, but by the middle of next month things will slowly return to normal and we could perhaps see the beginning of the end. Nevertheless, this December is almost certainly going to become the coldest since records began in 1910. Its already a lot colder than the previous record which was set in 1981. ...
WEATHER: 35,000 DEATHS FEAR IN NEW ARCTIC BLIZZARDS
Experts predict a dramatic increase in cold-related fatalities
Saturday December 11, 2010
DEATH rates are set to soar scandalously this winter as a new Arctic blast batters Britain with temperatures on a par with Siberia. Experts predict a dramatic increase in cold-related fatalities as we suffer the bitterest winter in a century, causing 12 deaths every hour. Britons face spiralling energy bills while the death toll this winter could reach 35,000 ...
Forecasters said temperatures could plummet to record lows in the run-up to Christmas, putting tens of thousands of vulnerable people at risk. Charities warned of pensioners suffering Dickensian conditions, resorting to riding on buses or huddling in shopping centres just to keep warm ...
Jonathan Powell, senior forecaster with Positive Weather Solutions, said icy conditions were on the way back by the middle of next week after a brief weekend thaw. He said plummeting temperatures could even surpass the -27.2C (-17F) recorded in Braemar in 1982 the coldest temperature in Britain. Powell said the prolonged cold snap would leave Britain the coldest country in the northern hemisphere and on a par with Siberia. He said: By next weekend, winds are turning northerly and there will be a true Arctic blast sweeping the country. Snow will fall as far as Bodmin in the South-west.
Now the Army moves in to clear away snow in coldest December for 100 years as fuel runs out at petrol stations in Scotland and East Anglia
3:55 PM on 9th December 2010
The Army was called in today to help clear away ice and snow as Britain headed towards its coldest December for 100 years. As temperatures plunged to -15c (5f) David Cameron ordered the military to step in and help the UK's beleaguered local councils. The Prime Minister also revealed Cobra-style emergency meetings of senior officials and Ministers had been held to discuss the Governments response to the big freeze.
Edinburgh City Council was the first local authority to ask for help. Officials have held talks with the Ministry of Defence and the Scottish government to allow soldiers to remove built up snow and ice from roads and pavements. The Scottish capital has seen the worst snowfall since 1963, leaving some of its most vulnerable residents unable to leave their homes. Up to 30ins of snow has fallen in parts of the city.
Under the plans, soldiers will be helping residents from the hardest hit areas of Edinburgh, as well as those who need to get access to medical help.
December 8, 2010
Gavin Partridge: The central England Temperature (CET) from the 1st-7th of December is -1.9, making this the coldest opening week of December since 1879; 1879 is the coldest opening week on CET record, so this week has been the second coldest opening week to December since CET records began in 1659. The two-week period, last week of November and first week of December is the coldest since CET records began in 1659.
Forecasters warn Christmas could be cancelled as cold weather grips UK
7th December, 2010
Christmas will have to be put on hold this year as the once in a lifetime cold snap threatens to tighten its grip on ice-bound Britain, forecasters are warning. Festivities are facing a white-out with the return of snow next week and Arctic conditions set to continue beyond the 25th. It means drivers are being warned not to travel in the run-up to Christmas, when millions hit the roads to visit relatives or to do last-minute shopping.
Chaos across the transport network could mean gifts sent through the post do not arrive in time and shops will run low on food and other essentials. AA spokesman Gavin Hill-Smith said: If it is really treacherous then people may well have to delay travelling and have their Christmas the following week. Safety comes first.
The earliest widespread wintry blast for 17 years has already crippled the transport network and claimed at least 13 lives. Forecasters predicted a brief respite this weekend but a fresh six inches of snow could fall next week, with temperatures plummeting as low -20C in Scotland and northern England. There is no sign of a let-up before the festive period and a strong possibility of a white Christmas. Brian Gaze, of independent forecaster The Weather Outlook, said: This cold spell is a once-in-a-lifetime event. Well probably never see it again.
The Highways Agency said salt stocks were well established, adding: We are well prepared for winter and everything that can be done will be done to keep roads open.
COMMENTS (12/14/10): We will continue to follow weather-related developments in the UK, but it is already quite clear that this is the worst winter, not in the last 50 years, but the last 100 years! And apparently the coldest winter in over 350 years ... I would certainly call this a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

DOZENS DEAD ... HUNDREDS INJURED IN MASSIVE 7.4 EARTHQUAKE IN GUATEMALA ...
|Powerful quake hits Guatemala, killing at least 48|
2012 09:30 IST
(AP) San Marcos, Guatemala: A 7.4-magnitude earthquake rocked Guatemala on Wednesday, killing at least 48 people in two provinces as it toppled thick adobe walls, shook huge landslides down onto highways, and sent terrified villagers streaming into the streets of this idyllic mountain town near the border with Mexico. One hundred people were missing, and hundreds were injured.
The quake, which hit at 10:35 a.m. in the midst of the work day, caused terror over an unusually wide area, with damage reported in all but one of Guatemala's 22 states and shaking felt as far away as Mexico City, 600 miles (965 kilometers) to the northwest.
President Otto Perez Molina said at a news conference that 40 people died in the province of San Marcos and eight more were killed in the neighboring province of Quetzaltenango. San Marcos, where more than 30 homes collapsed, bore the brunt of the temblor's fury.
|More than 300
people, including firefighters, policemen and villagers,
tried to dig through a half ton of sand at a quarry in
the commercial center of town in a desperate attempt to
rescue seven people believed buried alive. Among those
under the sand was a 6-year-old boy who had accompanied
his grandfather to work.
"I want to see Giovanni! I want to see Giovanni!" the boy's mother, 42-year-old Francisca Ramirez, frantically cried. "He's not dead. Get him out." She said the boy's father had emigrated to the U.S. and there was no way to reach him.
Perez flew to San Marcos to view the damage in this lush mountainous region of 50,000 indigenous farmers and ranchers, many belonging to the Mam ethnic group. "One thing is to hear about what happened and another thing entirely is to see it," Perez told The Associated Press. "As a Guatemalan I feel sad ... to see mothers crying for their lost children." The president said the government would pay for the funerals of all victims in the poor region.
Ramos helped load a tiny casket carrying the body of his
6-year-old niece from San Marcos' morgue to a waiting
pickup truck. "She is my niece. The little girl died
when a wall fell over her," a shocked Ramos told a
reporter. He said the girl was playing in her room when
the quake hit. The girl's mother hugged the coffin
wrapped with white lace and tulle while sobbing
uncontrollably. Ramos said the family would escort his
niece Rosa's body back home for a viewing.
Many of the colorful adobe buildings in the 10-square-mile center of San Marcos were either cracked or reduced to rubble, including the police station and the courthouse. The temblor left a large gash in one of the streets, and hundreds of frightened villagers stood in the open, refusing to go back inside. Hundreds of people crammed into the hallways of the small town hospital waiting for medical staff to help injured family members, some complaining they were not getting care quickly enough. Ingrid Lopez, who went to the hospital with a 72-year-old aunt whose legs were crushed by a falling wall, said she had waited hours for an X-ray. "We ask the president to improve conditions at the hospital," she said. "There isn't enough staff."
The quake, which was 20 miles deep, was centered 15 miles off the coastal town of Champerico and 100 miles southwest of Guatemala City. It was the strongest earthquake to hit Guatemala since a 1976 temblor that killed 23,000. Officials said most of 100 missing were from San Marcos. The mainly indigenous inhabitants farm corn and herd cattle, mostly for their own survival. Hospital officials in San Marcos said they had received 150 injured. "I've been in Guatemala for almost two years and I am used to earthquakes. This was a lot more severe, a lot more shaky," said Peace Corps volunteer Adam Baker, 27, of Carmel, Indiana, who tweeted a picture of a small landslide behind his house in the nearby state of Quetzaltenango. "Things fell in my kitchen."
Perez said more than 2,000 soldiers were deployed from a base in San Marcos to help with the disaster. A plane had already made two trips to carry relief teams to the area. The president urged people to stay put as emergency crews try to reach victims on the few roads not blocked by landslides or debris. He also encouraged people in the affected areas to stay outside and away from tall buildings. David de Leon, spokesman for civil protection, told radio station Emisoras Unidas that officials were working on evacuations and relief. There were four strong aftershocks by late afternoon. Perez said 150 people had been evacuated by air from the San Marcos area. The country's minister of communications and infrastructure told Emisoras Unidas that landslides had blocked several highways in the west of the country, and it would take at least 24 hours to re-establish transport links to San Marcos.
A spokesman for El Salvador's Red Cross branch told The Associated Press that the quake had been felt throughout the country, sending people fleeing their homes in the capital, but there had been no immediate reports of injuries or serious damage. The mayor of Mexico City said no serious damage or injuries were reported in the city, although many people fled their offices and homes during the quake.
In San Marcos, 91 inmates, including five women, were huddled to one side of the adobe makeshift jail that had floor-to-ceiling cracks and threatened to collapse. Police told the prisoners they were to be moved. "We'd rather stay here and reconstruct the jail than be displaced. That will be hard for our families," said inmate Benjamin Tomas Gomez.
COMMENTS (11/7/12): After several red alerts (below), two in 2011 and one this year, the "big one" (above) appears to have finally hit Guatemala. The death toll currently stands at 48 and climbing with an unknown number of hundreds injured ... still considerably short of the 50,000 dead estimated in my prediction. However, the quake's true toll thus far is unknown and the figures preliminary. Still, death tolls do not themselves always reflect the scope and magnitude of an earthquake. A seemingly moderate quake can take thousands of lives if it occurs in a heavily populated area or large city while a powerful quake might cause only a very small number of deaths if it occurs in a sparsely-populated region or in a place that is well-prepared for major earthquakes. Together with the other quakes thus far, I would nevertheless declare this now a PREDICTION PARTIALLY FULFILLED no longer but a PREDICTION FULFILLED.

|Hundreds of houses damaged after 7.4 magnitude earthquake hits Mexico|
2012 -- Updated 0356 GMT (1156 HKT)
Mexico City (CNN) -- A strong earthquake damaged hundreds of homes in southern Mexico Tuesday and rattled residents hundreds of miles away in the nation's capital. The quake had a magnitude of 7.4, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, and its epicenter was about 15 miles (25 kilometers) east of Ometepec, Guerrero. Mexican authorities reported the magnitude of the quake as 7.8. At least 500 homes in the southern coastal state were damaged, Gov. Angel Aguirre told reporters.
The temblor injured at least 11 people, Mexican Interior Minister Alejandro Poire told reporters. Nine of the injuries occurred in Oaxaca state, which borders Guerrero and also suffered damage from the quake, he said. Two people were injured in Mexico City, about 200 miles (320 km) from the quake's epicenter. Guerrero residents felt aftershocks hours after the quake, which the USGS said had a depth of about 12.4 miles (20 km).
The quake struck near the tourist resort of Acapulco, just after midday some 25 kilometers northeast of the town of Ometepec, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
are many cracked ceilings, many houses that
collapsed," Francisca Villalva Davila, Ometepec's
comptroller, told CNN en Español. Authorities were still
surveying damage Tuesday evening, Poire said. Reports
differed about the earthquake's impact. Officials
reported that at least 800 houses had collapsed in the
town of Igualapa, the Guerrero state government said in a
Later Tuesday, the head of Guerrero's civil protection department said officials had confirmed 200 damaged homes in the town. That number could increase when assessments of the area continue Wednesday, he said.
Residents rushed into the streets after feeling the temblor in Mexico City. Tourists and residents also felt the earthquake in the resort city of Acapulco, located about 100 miles (200 km) from the quake's epicenter.
Calderon said that there were no immediate reports of serious damage, and that the nation's health system was operating normally. "There are some broken windows, much fear, much panic," he said.
The USGS initially reported the magnitude of the quake at 7.9, but later revised that figure downward to 7.4.
in the southwestern states of Oaxaca and Guerrero and the
eastern state of Veracruz reported that phone service had
been knocked out. Multiple houses collapsed in the
Ometepec area, Aguirre told CNN affiliate Televisa.
Government helicopters were surveying the area, he said,
and officials were preparing shelters for displaced
residents. Authorities in Mexico City were surveying
buildings, schools and hospitals to evaluate damage,
Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said.
One person was injured when a pedestrian bridge fell on a minibus during the quake, he said. Some buildings had cracks and broken windows, he said in a Twitter post. Earthquakes are a frightening experience for the more than 20 million residents who live in the sprawling metropolis, where about 10,000 people perished after a massive quake in 1985. The city, built on volcanic ash and clay, is particularly vulnerable to temblors.
A spokeswoman told reporters that U.S. President Barack Obama's eldest daughter, who was on a spring trip with classmates in Mexico about 100 miles away from the quake's epicenter, was not injured. "In light of today's earthquake, we can confirm that Malia Obama is safe and was never in danger," said Kristina Schake, a spokeswoman for first lady Michelle Obama.
Three Dead After Strong Quake Shakes Mexico
Published December 10, 2011
MEXICO CITY A 6.5-magnitude earthquake struck in Mexico's western Guerrero state Saturday night, shaking buildings and causing panic in the nation's capital and the Pacific resort of Acapulco. Officials said at least three people died, but there were no reports of widespread damage.
The U.S. Geological Service initially estimated the quake at magnitude at 6.8, but downgraded it to 6.7 and then 6.5. A quake of that magnitude is capable of causing severe damage, although the depth of this temblor lessened its impact.
The USGS said the quake occurred at a depth of 40.3 miles. It was centered about 26 miles southwest of Iguala in Guerrero and 103 miles south-southwest of Mexico City.
Mexico's Interior Department said the quake was felt in parts of nine states.
Humberto Calvo, undersecretary of Guerrero's Civil Protection agency, said three deaths had been reported in the state.
He said one man was killed when a house's roof collapsed in Iguala, a second died in the small town of Ixcateopan and the driver of a cargo truck was killed by rocks that fell on the vehicle driving on the toll highway linking Acapulco with Mexico City. Calvo said a secondary highway between the two cities was blocked in two places by rockslides.
High-rises swayed in the center of Mexico City for more than a minute, and shoppers were temporarily herded out of some shopping centers until the danger passed.
Mexico City's mayor, Marcelo Ebrard, reported by Twitter that no major damage had been reported. He said power failed in some parts of the city.
People in one part of Mexico City's upscale Condesa neighborhood ran out of their houses and gathered in the streets, hugging each other while some shook and began to cry. On one street, a group of women joined hands in a circle, closed their eyes and began to pray. "Please God, help us and let everything be OK," said one. "It's OK. It's OK. Everything is OK."
Parts of Mexico City rest on the shaky soil of a former lake bed, which tends to magnify the effect of earthquakes. An 8.1-magnitude quake in 1985 killed as many as 10,000 people in the city.
In Acapulco, which is in Guerrero, hundreds of anxious tourists congregated in the street after fleeing rocking buildings that are strung along the coastal boulevard. Patrons also left a movie theater complex. Authorities said they found no structural damage and had no reports of injuries in the Pacific resort, which was about 87 miles from the quake's epicenter.
Trujillo, chief of security at a Soriana department store
in Acapulco, said perfume bottles, groceries and
paintings had been shaken off shelves and customers ran
Alberto Orbe, a radio operator for the city's Civil Protection agency, said the office had received many phone calls from panicked residents.
The quake interrupted the annual silver festival in the tourist city of Taxco, midway between Acapulco and the capital. A deep rumbling sound lasted for several seconds, then the whole city went dark as the ground shook. People ran out of hotels in the historic center of the old mining town and joined others who had been enjoying a band concert in the main plaza.
As people milled about, some illumination was provided from police pickup trucks doing security duty at the festival. After about 10 minutes, the band started up again and people began dancing. The power was out for about two hours and cellphone service was sporadic. Some people sat on restaurant terraces dining by candlelight and the full moon.
Earthquakes rattle Guatemala, kill at least 1
September 20, 2011 -- Updated 0032 GMT (0832 HKT)
Guatemala City, Guatemala (CNN) -- Four earthquakes struck southern Guatemala within hours of each other on Monday, killing at least one person and rattling residents in the capital city, officials said.
The largest of the quakes had a magnitude of 5.8 and was located about 53 kilometers (32 miles) southeast of Guatemala City, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The other quakes had reported magnitudes of 4.8 or lower, and hit within less than about 40 miles of the capital.
At least three people died in the department of Santa Rosa, according to local firefighters. However, Alejandro Maldonado, head of Guatemala's National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction, told reporters that just one person was confirmed dead. President Alvaro Colom said three people were reported missing in the aftermath of the quakes, but that those reports had not been confirmed. "There are people buried in the rubble," Evelyn Ruano, a spokeswoman in the president's office, told CNN. She said firefighters are on the scene to assist.
The state-run AGN news agency reported that seven vehicles were buried by the quake, while several houses in the area had suffered damage.
earthquake was reported by the USGS to be some 25 miles
CNN's Helena DeMoura and journalist Patzy Vasquez contributed to this report.
A hell of a week for Guatemala. A volcanic eruption outside of Guatemala City, leaving ash and lava everywhere; major flooding which has killed hundreds and rendered thousands homeless; a 6.1 earthquake off the coast of Guatemala and Costa Rica; and even a "sinkhole" which swallowed a three-storey building and seems to lead to the centre of the earth.
June 3, 2010: Storm-rattled Guatemalans attempted to retrieve belongings on Wednesday as officials delivered food aid after a devastating Tropical Storm Agatha left 183 people dead across the region. Scores of countries have offered aid to Guatemala, worst hit by the first eastern Pacific tropical storm of the season that left 156 people dead and another 103 people missing in the Central American country alone. Tens of thousands are homeless or displaced in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/27/09 -- During the course of what will be perceived as a great year of trouble, a war in progress since October 2010 between India and Pakistan over Kashmir may turn nuclear in February 2011. If the nuclear war is extremely limited or does not happen, never moving beyond a crisis stage, danger of China entering the conflict will begin in June 2011. If nuclear war between the two long-time adversaries occurs and is total, however, it will end then, in February 2011, with upwards to two billion dead and injured.
I must warn that we may not even know about this if it turns out to be only a crisis and a nuclear exchange is prevented from happening; it may never be reported. It depends on the duration of the crisis, I suppose. If it is of long duration, I cannot see how it can be covered up.
UPDATE (9/24/11): Thus far, no reports of any such crisis. But who knows what we may be told next year or the next about something that happened secretly? I mention this above.
The reason for the update is because the other thing mentioned above seems to be starting: I said if an Indian-Pakistani nuclear war did not happen, that there would be danger of China entering onto the scene in June 2011 as a potential adversary of India's. This now appears to be the case in September 2011 as the news links below indicate. This development will continue to be monitored.

NEW PREDICTION: 9/30/10 -- Man or woman, it will not matter ... neither will be safe from this crazed sex slayer. Cross dresser or transexual, it is unknown, but he will soon begin hunting down victims in the streets of London. He may begin his bloody razor reign of terror as early as October or November 2010, if so the victim will be a young female whom he shall assault sexually and then stab repeatedly many times. It is even possible that this killer has already shot a man to death in September 2007, and stabbed to death a man and woman in July 2008, in order to "set up shop." Their bodies have not been discovered and it is possible they never will be.
The slasher will begin a series of ghastly murders in February 2011: both men and women will be his victims. Both he shall assault sexually before killing them. He may also use a hammer to bludgeon some of his victims. His reign of terror may well continue until either July 2011 or as late as April 2014. Like the Strangler in the United States, he may well disappear in the chaos of World War III and Planet X in 2013, never to be aprehended or charged and sentenced for his crimes.

Far closer to the scene Susan Murray, then 51, has not been seen since she went missing from an address in nearby Dersingham on January 3, 1980. The case is one of a number of unsolved missing persons cases currently being reviewed by Norfolk police.

Detectives investigating the murder of a young woman found on the Queen's Sandringham Estate have named the victim as 17-year-old Alisa Dmitrijeva.
Her body was found by a dog walker in woodland at Anmer, near King's Lynn, on New Year's Day. Latvian-born Miss Dmitrijeva was identified by comparing detail from her palm with records held. Miss Dmitrijeva, from Wisbech in Cambridgeshire, was last seen in Friars Street, King's Lynn, on 31 August.
|In a press
statement, Miss Dmitrijeva's family said they were
"devastated" by news of her death.
Forensics experts had struggled to identify the body.
Attempts to get a useable DNA profile for Miss Dmitrijeva from tooth and muscle samples were inconclusive. The teenager was finally identified by comparing details from her palm with records held, which were further verified by DNA from her thigh bone.
£5,000 reward was offered for information about Miss
Dmitrijeva's whereabouts in December, just over three
months after she went missing. A Facebook advert,
translated into Lithuanian and Latvian, was also used to
try to trace the missing teenager.
Det Ch Insp Jes Fry, head of the Joint Norfolk and Suffolk major investigation team, said detectives would be working with officers from Cambridgeshire who had been trying to find Miss Dmitrijeva as a missing person.
The site where Miss Dmitrijeva's body was found is used regularly for pheasant and partridge shoots, often attended by members of the royal household. Police have spoken to the Sandringham gamekeeper, estate manager and beaters for potential leads.
Officers want to speak to anyone who may have been in the area between the end of August and the end of September. "I should add we are still trying to establish any activity which took place on or around the site during the time frame of the end of August to the end of September 2011," Mr Fry said. "We would like to identify people who may have worked in that area or were involved in organising or running any specific events that may have taken place."
Police said it was "highly unlikely" Miss Dmitrijeva had died through natural causes. There was no evidence of accidental injury, damage due to firearms or a bladed weapon, they said.
COMMENTS (1/7/12): It is early yet. The body may not belong to either woman. But I find it more than a mere coincidence that both missing women are Baltic (Lithuanian, Latvian), both disappeared in the month of August 2011, and both resided in the same general area. If the body is identified as either Alisa Dmitrijeva or Vitalija Baliutaviciene, what will that say about the likelihood of finding the other woman alive? Police had apparently already linked these two missing persons cases before the body was even found. It may portend something even worse if the body belongs to a third missing persons cold case. I sense this could become a serial killer investigation, albeit eleven months later than projected.

executes Jewish woman
Israel News, Ynetnews
Published: 05.15.11, 09:54 / Israel
An Israel-born Jewish woman of Iranian descent and her Armenian Christian husband were executed in Iran over two months ago, an Iranian human rights group reported last Thursday.
The Human Rights Activists News Agency claimed Adiva Mirza Soleyman Kalimia and her husband Varjan Petrosian were hung on March 14 at Evin Prison, known for its political prisoners' wing, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.
The human rights group quoted the Iranian court's confirmation of the executions. Two other men and one woman who remained unidentified were also executed along with the couple.
Relatives of the woman said they do not know why she was killed.
Soleyman Kalimia was born in Jerusalem in 1956 to a Jewish family of Iranian descent. At one point she moved to Miami and eventually received US citizenship. According to her family, she had two passports: American and European. Her son lives in Europe.
In the past few years, for reasons unknown to her family, Soleyman Kalimia began to visit Iran. She was able to enter and leave the country three times, before she was eventually arrested and sent to prison. The official cause for her arrest was adultery, from what little information that is known to her family.
Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights, Michael Posner, spoke before the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations last Wednesday, and discussed the human rights' situation in Iran.
Posner said human rights in the Islamic Republic had deteriorated in the first part of 2011. "Protestors were killed in Tehran in February and in ethnically-Arab areas in April; additional sentences were levied on those already in prison merely for sending letters to family members; political prisoners are held in deplorable conditions with convicted murderers in former stockyards," he told the committee.
He mentioned that "a Jewish woman and her Armenian-Christian husband were reportedly executed based on undisclosed charges. Mass executions of mainly ethnic minority prisoners have been carried out without their families knowledge; Iran has executed at least 135 people this year."
COMMENTS (7/26/11): This one is difficult to catagorise. Was this woman an Israeli spy or a female Western hostage? There are predictions for both situations, the other one on 2011 (Part Three), as well as a prediction for a male Western hostage. There is no question that Adiva Kalimia was Israeli ... born and raised there of Jewish parents of Iranian descent. She was no more an Iranian than an Israeli born Jew of Syrian, Egyptian, Jordanian, or Palestinian descent. So, Iran has hanged an Israeli woman. A spy? They say adultery; but who really knows?? Iran makes up charges as they go along. In the Iranian government's mind, anyone from outside caught inside is probably a spy. She may simply have been in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I never specified the gender of the person in this prediction. So, male or female qualify. But as I say, on the other page is a prediction for a female Western hostage being hanged in Iran. This woman is an Israeli, but moved to Miami, FL and became a US citizen. She had both American and European passports. Does that make her Western too?
Because her husband was Armenian, he cannot be said to be Western, despite being a Christian.
It is rare, but sometimes an event will fulfill two different predictions ... fully or partially. Because Adiva Kalimia was truly an Israeli and of Jewish family, but not a spy, this prediction, already fulfilled back in December, is this time around PARTIALLY FULFILLED.
man convicted of spying for Israel
Dec 28, 5:30 AM (ET)
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) - Iran on Tuesday hanged an Iranian convicted of spying for the country's archenemy Israel, the official IRNA news agency reported. Ali Akbar Siadat had been accused of providing Israel with classified information on Iran's military capabilities, including details about military maneuvers, bases, operational jet fighters, military flights, air crashes and missiles, IRNA reported.
Separately, another Iranian was hanged Tuesday for membership in an exile opposition movement, IRNA reported.
Over the past decade, Iran has stepped up its domestic military production, including missiles capable of reaching Israel and beyond - aiming, Tehran says, to defend the country from Israel and the U.S. amid Iranian concern they might strike its nuclear facilities. According to IRNA, Siadat confessed to spying for Israel starting in 2004 in return for $60,000, as well as an additional $7,000 each time he met with Israeli handlers. IRNA said he met up with Israeli intelligence agents during "foreign trade" trips to Turkey, Thailand and the Netherlands and that he transferred data through a digital camera, transmitters and laptop.
IRNA reported that Siadat was arrested in 2008 while planning to flee Iran. There were no details on whether Siadat was a government employee or how he obtained the classified information. There was no immediate comment on the execution from officials in Israel.
IRNA said Siadat was hanged in Tehran's Evin prison. Earlier in the week, Iran's judiciary announced that a spy for Israel would be executed soon after an appeals court confirmed the man's death sentence. It said the trial was held in the presence of his lawyer. Espionage is punishable by death under Iranian law. Iran and Israel have been enemies since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, with Tehran periodically announcing arrests of people suspected of spying for Israel.
In 2008, Iran executed Ali Ashtari, an electronics salesman who was convicted of relaying information on Iran's nuclear program and other sensitive data to Israel's Mossad spy agency. And in 2000, a court convicted 10 Iranian Jews of spying for Israel in a closed-door trial and sentenced them to prison terms ranging from four to 13 years. All were released before serving out their full sentences after international pressure.
IRNA also reported that another Iranian, identified as Ali Sarami, was hanged on Tuesday in Evin after being convicted of membership in an exiled opposition group, the Mujahedeen-e Khalq Organization. It said he had been arrested several times since 1982 for membership in the group but had continued his activities each time. He was detained in 2007 for the last time and was sentenced to death, IRNA reported.
MEK in a statement Tuesday claimed Sarami's wife and daughter as well as two other supporters were arrested while protesting outside Evin prison after his execution. It said Sarami, 63, has spent a total 24 years in prison from various incarcerations under the shah and clerical rule. Though arrested in his death 2007, sentence came after mass opposition protests that were held in December 2009, the group said.
The MEK said that before his arrest, Sarami visited a son who is staying at Camp Ashraf, an MEK base in neighboring Iraq. Iranian authorities have arrested other people in the past in part for visiting relatives in the camp. The London-based rights group Amnesty International reported in August that in addition to Sarami, six others in Iranian prisons are facing execution after being sentenced to death for MEK links.
The MEK is a bitter opponent of Iran's ruling clerics. It was founded in the 1960s and opposed the rule of the U.S.-backed shah, but then after his fall in the 1979 Islamic Revolution, it carried out attacks against the cleric-led government that came to power. MEK and its affiliates were deemed foreign terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department in 1997.
Iran executes man as Israeli spy, hangs opposition group member
December 28, 2010 -- Updated 1311 GMT (2111 HKT)
Iran has hanged a man convicted of spying for Israel and
The executions took place at Tehran's Evin Prison at dawn Tuesday. Ali-Akbar Siadat was sentenced to death for working as a spy for Israeli intelligence. The Islamic Republic News Agency said Siadat admitted to transferring information to Israel over several years in exchange for $60,000. He was arrested in 2008 while trying to leave Iran along with his wife,the news agency said.
A second man, Ali Saremi, was hanged for "fighting against the sacred Islamic Republic of Iran system and launching antagonist propagations," the agency reported. He was a member of People's Mujahedeen of Iran, also known as the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization, which has opposed the Iranian government for decades.
Tehran considers the group to be a terrorist outfit, as does the United States. The European Union does not.
Members of a European Parliament group, Friends of a Free Iran Intergroup, condemned Saremi's execution Tuesday, calling it, "another crime for which the mullahs will be held to account when freedom is finally restored to that beleaguered nation." The group also demanded that Iranian leaders "be tried in the International Court of Justice for crimes against humanity."
COMMENTS (12/28/10): This one apparently is already a PREDICTION FULFILLED before I have had to chance to elaborate with images or text. I think, however, I was predicting an actual Israeli who would be captured and executed as a spy. In this case it is an Iranian accused of spying for the Israeli Mossad. So, I don't know if this is the event, a partial fulfillment, or if it is more a "red alert" that someone from Israel will get captured, accused for spying, and then hanged. We are, after all, only a few months away from March 2011, so this could have been it.
One thing I find very strange is a lack of any images of the accused and executed Israeli spy, Ali-Akbar Siadat. There are none to be found of this man, and I have scoured the Internet. The photo that is appearing in all the news reports about Siadat's execution is that of the other man hanged: Ali Saremi, a member of People's Mujahedeen of Iran. Saremi's image is plastered everywhere, prominently below headlines and above captions about the Israeli spy being hanged. This seems a bit insane. Where is the photo of Siadat to be had? Why the secrecy?? A photo of Siadat during imprisonment or during trial would be greatly appreciated.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- There are many reasons why emergency elections might be held in Israel in March 2011. Perhaps there will be a third intifada, the threat of revolution within Israel itself, or an Arab-Israel war triggered by revolutionaries in Lebanon or Syria. If such elections are held, I believe Tzipi Livni will become the new prime minister.

NEW PREDICTION: 1/4/11 -- A smalltime porn actress looking for bigger breaks in the industry or an aspiring film actress looking for a way to get "her foot in the door" will be lured to a secret location in March 2011. She will be deceived into believing she is making either a violent porn film or horror film and that the murder scene will not be real. This may or may not be the original intention on the part of the film-maker. In any event, either by the director's contrivance or due to an unplanned, spur-of-the-moment decision he will make, she will either be stabbed or strangled to death and the result marketed as a porno snuff film.

'cannibal': Katie Price admits she's besotted with serial
killer suspect Luka Magnotta
The 34-year-old says she can't stop thinking about the porn star day and night and even dreams about him when she goes to sleep
10 Jun 2012 15:43
Katie Price has confessed to being besotted with cannibal suspect Luka Magnotta. The 34-year-old says she can't stop thinking about the porn star day and night and even dreams about him when she goes to sleep.
Writing in her column in The Sun, under the headline "Why I am mesmerised by 'cannibal' Magnotta, the model, who has a passion for true-crime, says: "I've got a confession to make. Leo is away in Argentina taking part in the country's version of Strictly Come Dancing and I've become obsessed besotted even with another man. At night I go to bed dreaming about him and in the morning I wake up with him on my mind, trying to work out what makes him tick. But he isn't a rich businessman or a successful celebrity.
"No, I am fascinated by the serial killer suspect Luka Rocco Magnotta.
"Every so often, a shocking, spine-chilling story emerges from the world of crime, but when it involves someone as complex and macabre as Magnotta, I find it fascinating."
Berlin police arrest a Canadian porn actor accused of killing a man and mailing his body parts
Case 'far from' over: Canada to seek extradition of dismemberment suspect
June 5, 2012 -- Updated 0832 GMT (1632 HKT)
Berlin (CNN) -- While the international manhunt for the porn actor accused of killing and dismembering a man in Canada ended Monday in a Berlin Internet cafe, the investigation is far from over, authorities said.
Canada will have to request Luka Rocco Magnotta's extradition from Germany, and many of the body parts of the victim he allegedly dismembered are still missing. Montreal Police Cmdr. Ian LaFreniere told reporters that investigators would begin looking into possible links to other crimes and that authorities have much work ahead of them in bringing Magnotta back to Canada to face trial. "This is far from being over," LaFreniere said.
Magnotta faces first-degree murder and other charges in the killing last month of Jun Lin, 33, a Concordia University student from China. Authorities accuse him of dismembering the student, mailing the body parts to Canadian police and politicians, and then taunting authorities by posting a video of the grisly act on the Internet.
For days, officers in 190 countries -- alerted by the global police agency Interpol -- looked for Magnotta. But, in the end, it was the keen eye of an Internet cafe employee in Berlin that helped police nab their suspect. Kadir Anlayisli said he recognized the slight man who walked into the nondescript Helin Spatkauf Internet Cafe on Monday -- but he couldn't quite figure out why he did.
But as Magnotta surfed the web, poring through news accounts of the case in which he himself was the suspect, the realization dawned on Anlayisli. "I looked in the papers and said 'That's him who they're looking for, the porno killer,'" Anlayisli told reporters. The cafe worker flagged down a carload of German police trainees.
Magnotta initially denied his identity, police said. Then he gave up without a fight, stating simply: "You got me."
The next step in the case is for Canada to send an extradition request to Germany for Magnotta's return. If Magnotta does not fight the extradition, he will be back in Montreal quickly to face the charges. Otherwise, it could take months. "If he wanted to delay the proceedings, it could take as much as a year or more," Daniel Brown, a Toronto defense attorney told CNN affiliate CBC. "You have to have the resources to be able to sustain those types of appeals and things of that nature. I'm not sure Mr. Magnotta does."
The case began last week when a package containing the severed foot addressed to Prime Minister Stephen Harper arrived at his majority Conservative Party headquarters. A hand was later found at a post office addressed to the minority Liberal Party, authorities said. Authorities quickly traced the address on the packages to the Montreal apartment of Magnotta, where they discovered a torso in a suitcase in a trash bin.
Lin's death and dismemberment were allegedly captured on a graphic video posted to the Internet, according to Montreal police. It features a man -- who authorities believe is Magnotta -- killing another man, dismembering the corpse and performing sexual acts. "We believe he filmed himself," Lafreniere said last week. "It's gross. ... This is a very deranged person. He is looking for attention, and he got it, but not in a positive way."
Authorities believe Magnotta killed Jun on May 24 or May 25, posted the video, and on May 26 fled the country by plane to Europe.
Since the grisly killing became the most talked about international crime story, more has come out about Magnotta's alleged past. The self-proclaimed gay porn actor, stripper and escort promoted himself through a graphic website that showcased his a chameleon-like quality: the ability to change his appearance, authorities said. In one picture, with dark hair, he resembles a teenager. In another, with blond hair, he looks rough. In most of the pictures, whether clothed or half-naked, Magnetta sported a distinct runway pout.
Authorities allege he even changed his names, using the aliases Eric Newman or Vladimir Romanov.
He was also notorious among online animal rights activists, who pegged him as a serial kitten killer who used cat carcasses in sexual acts. A Facebook group started in December 2010 dubbed him the "Vacuum Kitten Killer," after a video was posted on YouTube showing kittens being killed by suffocation and drowning.
Several Canadian newspapers also reported that Magnotta had dated notorious Canadian killer Karla Homolka, who years before was arrested for the rapes and murders of three Ontario girls, including her own sister. As part of a plea bargain, Homolka served 12 years in prison. LaFreniere said he could not confirm any links and Homolka is not part of the investigation.
There have also been recent reports that Magnotta threatened to kill as early as six months ago during an encounter with a reporter at the Sun. The British newspaper implicated Magnotta as a suspect in the videotaped killing of a kitten, which it reports he initially denied. Then, according to the newspaper, it received an e-mail describing how the writer planned to move on from killing animals to people. The writer, the newspaper reported over the weekend, was Magnotta. The newspaper informed police. "We're talking about a very strange, unhinged individual," said the Sun's Neil Millard.
Cannibal on run after chopping up man warned The Sun: I cant stop killing
First he fed kitten to snake on sick vid & we alerted cops but they did nothing
01st June 2012
THE hunt for a cannibal killer suspect has spread to Europe months after The Sun warned Scotland Yard that he was dangerous.
We showed cops sick film of a live KITTEN fed to a snake and an email warning: Once you kill and taste blood its impossible to stop.
Luka Magnotta, 29, fled after his male partner - a missing Chinese student - was chopped up and eaten in Canada.
Today cops said Magnotta flew to Europe on Saturday and refused to rule out that he was not in England. French cops have said they are actively hunting for him across the Channel.
Magnotta is believed to have written a chilling email to The Sun saying: Ill be back and this time the victims wont be animals. The terrifying message was sent after we quizzed him in London six months ago over the kitten torture video.
We warned the Met Police then of our fears he would go on to kill but they DROPPED the case, saying it was outside their jurisdiction.
Last night the twisted gay porn star was being hunted across the world after a severed hand and a foot were mailed to the offices of two political parties in Canada.
Today a former transexual girlfriend of the Magnotta told how the suspected killer was obsessed with Madonna and James Dean - and would "do anything to be famous".
And Interpol issued a Red Notice most wanted persons alert for Magnotta to its 190 member countries. Police also said Magnotta could even be travelling secretly disguised as a WOMAN.
The headless male torso was found in a suitcase dumped in rubbish behind Magnottas shabby apartment in Montreal.
Cops today said Magnotta's victim is Chinese student Lin Jun, 33, and that body parts were still missing. Jun - from the east-central Chinese city of Wuhan - was last seen on May 24 and was reported missing on Tuesday.
Today at a press conference Canadian cops said Magnotta took a flight from Montreal to Europe on Saturday May 26. They believe he carried out the murder between May 24 and 25. But police in Canada refused to say what identity he flew under.
Marie-Élaine Ladouceur, a spokeswoman for Montreal Police, also added that Magnotta was definitely in Europe. And she did not rule out he was back in England. She told The Daily Mail: I can't confirm that he is in England, but he is most definitely in Europe." Meanwhile a French police official believes Magnotta flew to Paris before the case emerged.
Montreal Police Commander Ian Lafreniere said the fugitive could be disguising himself as a woman. He said: What will hinder him the most is what he used to glorify himself, the web, with all the photos we have of him." He added that Magnotta was someone who can disguise himself, he can change into a woman, wear a wig."
Last night the baby-faced weirdo was placed on the FBI and Interpol Most Wanted lists as police discovered a grisly video thought to be live footage of the murder.
The ten-minute film shows the victim being stabbed in a frenzy with an ICE-PICK, before being dismembered, sexually abused and his flesh EATEN with a knife and fork. We investigated bisexual Magnotta, 29, when he was in Britain last December after the vile kitten video was posted on the internet.
Two days later a misspelled email was sent to The Sun. It told of the writers love for London and warned: Well, I have to say goodbye for now. But dont worry, in the near future you will be hearing from me again. This time, however, the victims wont be small animals. I will however, send you a copy of the new video Im going to be making. You see, killing is different than smoking... with smoking you can actually quit.
Once you kill, and taste blood, its impossible to stop.
Our reporters were convinced it was from Magnotta.
We had spoken to him after running a story on December 3 about a video showing a tiny black bundle of fur being fed to a PYTHON. In another film, a second kitten was callously suffocated inside a plastic food bag. We were told creepy Magnotta was behind the sick footage. He turned up unannounced at our offices on December 8 to wrongly complain we were harassing him.
He strongly denied he was responsible despite being shown photos of him posted on the internet showing him holding a kitten and a Burmese python identical to those in the videos. He was later evicted from his room above a pub in Wembley for not paying his bill and disappeared. Two days later the email arrived at two addresses used by readers to contact us.
It was written under the name John Kilbride, one of the child victims of Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindley. That choice instantly rang alarm bells because of its links to background music used in one video as a kitten was killed.
The track was Little Drummer Boy, the same song heard on a tape made by Brady as he tortured and murdered Lesley Ann Downey. We told cops at Limehouse, East London, of our fears over the cat videos and the email. Reporter Alex West gave a statement and later handed them a dossier of evidence.
Last night, a Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed detectives had started a probe but dropped it when it emerged the email had been sent from a computer based in the Netherlands and the videos posted online in North America. The spokesman admitted: We did not liaise with the authorities abroad. It had not been possible to glean information regarding any specific locations within North America or the Netherlands and as such there was no specific local force to pass any intelligence to.
Magnottas movements after December 8 are not known, meaning he could easily have left for Holland and sent the email from there before later jetting to Canada.
Cops say Magnotta, who uses the aliases Eric Clinton, Kirk Newman and Vladimir Romanov, settled in a grubby apartment in Montreal. The former stripper, who has no criminal record, was a model tenant according to his landlord. But police swooped on his flat on Tuesday after a cleaner found a case containing the torso outside among a pile of rubbish bags.
Inside, cops found what looked like blood on a shower curtain, blood-soaked sheets and a message scrawled on a wall inside a wardrobe: If you dont like the reflection, dont look in the mirror. I dont care.
The victims foot was sent to Conservative Party HQ in the capital, Ottawa, while one of his hands was sent to the Liberal Partys HQ. Canadian Conservative spokesman Fred DeLorey said: It was such a horrible odour. A note reportedly found with the foot claimed a total of SIX body parts had been posted and warned the murderer would strike again.
Police confirmed they had found a grisly video that could be of the murder taking place. The ten-minute film, titled 1 Lunatic 1 Ice Pick, shows a man having his throat slashed to New Orders True Faith, which was also the soundtrack to serial killer movie American Psycho. It was posted several days ago on a sick snuff website.
Meanwhile today a Canadian transexual claimed she had a three-week affair with the suspected killer who chillingly boasted he would do "anything to be famous." Nina Arsenault told how she met Magnotta when he was just 18 and working as a stripper. Nina said: "I first met him as Angel, but then he told me his real name is Luka and he also referred to himself as Rocco. He was my very first lover after I started living as a transsexual.
Arsenault called Magnotta "very manipulative" and a "pathological liar". She told Torontos CityNews: He would joke about killing animals. He would joke about killing people, that he wanted to kill his family. Arsenault also said Magnotta used methamphetamine, was fascinated with James Dean and Madonna, and would PUNCH himself in the head while showering. "He said, 'I'm afraid when you look in my eyes ... that you'll see that there's nothing inside of me.' "
"To me he was a f****d up kid."
Canadian cops also confirmed he had previously dated a paedophile serial killer, Karla Homolka.
Commander Lafreniere said: This wasnt a random act. The two were a little more than friends. All our indications are that the two body parts are linked to our homicide here. We are waiting for DNA confirmation. He added: This guy is a wacko. Id have trouble sleeping at night if the suspect was in my neighbourhood.
Last night police said Magnotta, thought to be bi-polar, had probably fled Canada for Europe. And it emerged he wrote a guide on a blog in 2009 about how to vanish without a trace.
A relative of Magnotta said: He hurt us when he was younger and we havent been in contact with him in a while.
Porn star wanted in murder/dismemberment case dated Karla Homolka
Luka Rocco Magnotta wanted in connection with body pieces mailed to Ottawa
Max Harrold and Paul Cherry, Postmedia News
Tuesday, May 29, 2012
MONTREAL Montreal police have issued a Canada-wide warrant for Luka Rocco Magnotta - a man with a disturbing online profile who is now accused of murder after the grisly discovery of a torso, whose severed foot and hand were mailed to the Conservative and Liberal party offices in Ottawa.
Police also confirmed that the suspect at large in the gruesome murder and dismemberment once dated notorious sex killer Karla Homolka, though in 2007 Magnotta denied he dated the notorious sex killer.
A video purporting to show Magnotta stabbing a man repeatedly on a bed has been circulating online and was sent to the Montreal Gazette. The Gazette has been unable to confirm that this is the same video that police received. The Gazette has not been able to confirm whether the video was staged.
Police have obtained a disturbing video of the crime and are taking steps to have it removed from a website where it was posted, The Gazette has confirmed.
Investigators are seeking the public's aid in locating the 29-year-old Magnotta, who may also go by the names Eric Clinton, Kirk Newman or Vladimir Romanov.
"We really need the public's help on this," said SPVM spokesman Ian Lafrenière. The assistance of residents in the area where the body was discovered had also helped the investigation advance quickly.
Magnotta is said to be a stripper and a porn star. The suspect was not previously known to police, Lafrenière said.
A headless, limbless torso was discovered in a suitcase with a heap of garbage Tuesday at Place Lucy and Decarie Boulevard in Montreal's Snowden neighbourhood. At about the same time Tuesday, an employee of Conservative Party of Canada headquarters in Ottawa opened a package that contained a severed foot. A second parcel containing a hand was later located at a Canada Post sorting facility in Ottawa.
Wednesday, police linked the severed appendages to the torso and transferred the case to Montreal Police.
Montreal Police focused their attention on a second floor apartment in a building on Decarie near where the torso was found Tuesday in a suitcase on the curb with a pile of garbage.
The tenant of the building is being sought by police, said residents of the building.
The apartment smelled terrible and it appears the homicide was carried out on a bed in the small apartment. A reporter saw a mattress stained with blood Wednesday afternoon.
Residents also said police believe the torso belongs to an Asian man who is apparently missing. The police have been showing them a photo of the Asian man on Wednesday.
Residents described Magnotta as a very quiet man who kept to himself. The building's superintendant joked about it.
"It's like you see in the movies. It's always the good neighbour. It's the cliche," he said.
Residents of the building said they believe Magnotta worked in the gay porn industry.
One said the only time Magnotta spoke to him was about five days ago. He asked the man, an actor, how he could get started in "legitimate" movies.
Residents of the building said they also saw Magnotta wearing a bizarre wig days ago and that they commented on his strange appearance.
Employees at a Canada Post office just a few blocks away from where the suspect lives said the police have not questioned them about the possibility of body parts being mailed from their location. Both employees were aware that a torso had been found near their location. But they said no one had asked them about the case until two reporters asked them about the strange story Wednesday afternoon.
Magnotta has also been the subject of an international social media campaign for allegedly killing kittens, videotaping their deaths and posting the videos online.
Animal rights activists around the world mobilized to identify him and offered a $5,000 to bring him to justice. The online efforts to find him may have fuelled some of Magnotta's online writings defending his reputation and complaining about "cyber stalking" and "media propaganda" on his website www.Luka-Magnotta.net.
"I do not feel the necessity to address the specific accusations made in the posts since they are so far from my character that responding to them will give them more credibility than they will ever hold. If the readers of these posts can look behind the storyline that has been created, they will see that there is no reference to a concrete transaction or event that has taken place with any specific person in which I have committed any illegal activity," he wrote on one of his eponymous web sites.
"Many hoax websites are created using my image and name, posing as me to seem more believable in respect to the type of audience these website have, I feel I don't need to list them specifically but people need not be told, not to believe what they read and to take it as fact," he write in one article entitled "Cyber Stalking" beside a photo of him shirtless and reclining.
Police have not released the victim's name. An autopsy is expected to reveal how the man was killed and whether he was dead before being dismembered, police said.

COMMENTS (8/3/12): I am late putting this up since far more important things have occurred before, during, and since this event to keep me occupied. This sick monster, in the end, will only be another blip ... a small one at that ... on the neverending radar of history. It was an email I received a while ago that brought my attention to the fact that this killer and his creating of a snuff film that went extremely viral on the Internet does indeed seem to match my prediction. The emailer even made the correct base 7 connection between my prediction and the precedent I used for it: the murder of an up-and-coming porn actress named Natel King in 2004 for purposes of filming a snuff video. I suppose the very strange and violent death of porn actress Anneka Di Lorenzo (Vasta), who also appeared as Messalina in Caligula (1979) and as a nurse at Belview in Dressed to Kill (1980), might have fulfilled the prediction completely ... if it could be proven that her "suicide" (obviously a murder covered up) was filmed. Likewise the bizarre hanging death of Rebecca Zahau, girlfriend of CEO billionaire Jonah Shacknai. However, even though the two people involved in this horror story, porn actor and model Luka Rocco Magnotta and his victim, Lin Jun, were both male rather than female, this event obviously does rhyme with the death of Natel King in 2004. Thus, taken together with the Anneka Vasta death, we now have a PREDICTION FULFILLED ... and a partial fulfillment besides.
Actress Anneka Vasta, aka Anneka DiLorenzo, Found Naked With
Broken Neck on Beach, January 4, 2011 ...
Not Reported to Media Until October 25 ... Suicide or Homicide?
|Three's a Trend:
Will "Jack the Stripper" Strike Again?

San Diego Reader
It began with Rebecca Zahau, the 32-year-old woman found bound, naked, and hanged by her neck from the second-floor balcony of a Coronado mansion. The death was ruled a suicide, but questions persisted: why did she bind herself first? Why was there tape residue on her legs? Why were there injuries to her head? Why was there a t-shirt wrapped around her neck and stuffed into her mouth? Some observers suspected foul play.
Then there was the case of Anneka Vasta, a.k.a. Anneka DiLorenzo, the former Penthouse Pet of the Year who was found broken, naked, and drowned on a Marine training beach in Camp Pendleton. The death was ruled a suicide, but questions persisted: how did her body get there? Why was there a bloody steak knife in her car? Some observers suspected foul play.
Now, those same observers are advising the media to brace for the revelation of a third death. Lauren Dazzle, editor in chief of Sensational San Diego, speculates that the victim will once again be female and naked. The death will look like a suicide, but there will be nagging questions - "almost like clues, or taunts."
Dazzle suggests the possibility that a serial killer might be at work in San Diego, a serial killer who might eventually be nicknamed by a cynical, ghoulish media establishment as "Jack the Stripper."
"Did I mention that all of the victims are naked?" asks Dazzle. "And remember - that nickname is totally mine. I made it up. Must credit Sensational San Diego."
So far, police have refused to comment, citing their policy regarding investigations that are "ongoing." But, says Dazzle, "Is it just coincidence that just last Friday, a second autopsy was performed on the already-buried Zahau? I think not."
Police Seek Help on Death of Former 'Penthouse' Model Anneka Vasta
By IBTimes Staff Reporter | October 27, 2011 5:27 PM EDT
Authorities appealed to the public for information Tuesday after a nine-month investigation on the death of former Penthouse model, Anneka Vasta, who was found washed up on a Camp Pendleton, Calif. beach. Joggers found the model's naked body with a broken neck and back on the Marine training beach on Jan. 4, 2011.
Military police initially thought Vasta was a teenager because of her slender and youthful body, reported the San Diego Union-Times.
Police are still trying to establish whether Vasta's death was a suicide, accidental death or foul play. Her family "vehemently denies" that Vasta could have committed suicide, the San Diego Union-Times reported.
Vasta, formerly known as Anneka Di Lorenze in her modeling days, lived a glamorous B-list Hollywood life in the 1970s and 80s. She was named Penthouse Pet of the Year in 1975 and appeared in Bob Guccione's infamous soft-core porn films, "Caligula." According to MSNBC, the film is famously known because Roger Ebert walked out of it, later awarding the film zero stars and describing the film as "sickening, utterly worthless, shameful trash."
Much later in her life, Vasta won $4 million in a landmark sexual harassment suit in New York after Penthouse publisher Guccione, whom she dated, forced her to have sex with two of his business associates.
Federal investigators remain clueless in the 58-year-old's death. The Navy Criminal Investigation Service has asked the public if anyone recalls seeing Vasta along Interstate 5, where her car was parked, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
After 9 months of investigation, police can still not determine how Vasta's body got from the vantage point 60 feet above sea level where her car was parked, to the rocky, sandy beach below, over a mile south.
Investigators believe that had Vasta jumped from the scenic vantage point where her car was park, she would not have made it to the beach because the tide is not high enough at that location, If Vasta had jumped, investigators do not believe her body would have hit water, explained the San Diego Union-Tribune.
"We know her life ended in the water, in some circumstance, we just don't know how," said Special Agent Rachel McGranaghan.
When investigators discovered Vasta's maroon 2011 Mazda 626 sedan perched along Interstate 5, they also found a blood-stained leopard-print blouse and a sports bra in the car. A steak knife with Vasta's blood was found by the passenger floorboard. Lithium and an empty bottle of Xanax were also found strewn in the car, but no drugs were found in her body after an autopsy was completed.
The autopsy report did, however, show a shallow wound on her wrist (which may indicate a half-hearted attempt at suicide) and stab wounds in her chest.
Vatsa was known for being extremely open to strangers and family members worry that she may have been in the car with someone she had met that New Year's Eve weekend.
Anneka Vasta mystery: Navy police appeal for help over death of former Penthouse model washed up on beach
Police baffled by mystery death of Caligula actress found naked and washed up on beach with broken neck
By Laurie Whitwell

Navy investigators are asking for public help as they probe the death of a former Penthouse model and Caligula actress whose body washed up in San Diego County. Authorities want to know whether anyone saw Anneka Vasta before joggers found her naked body on a Marine training beach at Camp Pendleton on January 4 this year.
The 58-year-old was discovered with a broken neck and back. She had drowned. Police are trying to establish how she got there and whether her death was a suicide.
Former centre-fold Vasta lived a life of relative glamour in the 1970s and 80s, being named the 1975 Penthouse Pet of the Year, under the name Anneka Di Lorenzo, and appearing as Messalina in Bob Guccione's infamous soft-porn film Caligula. She later won $4million in a landmark sexual harassment suit against Penthouse publisher Guccione, whom she had dated, after he compelled her to have sex with two of his business associates.
The Naval Criminal Investigative Service is asking if anyone recalls seeing Vasta along Interstate 5, where her car was found parked at a popular scenic overlook, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Federal agents have pursued the case for nine months but are not yet able to say how Vasta got from the vantage point 60ft above sea level, to the rocky sand below, more than a mile south. Investigators believe that if Vasta jumped from the bluffs below her car, her body would not have hit the water, because the tide is not high enough at the location, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Her family strongly refutes the suggestion she committed suicide and investigators have looked into whether Vasta, known as emotionally fragile, was harmed by someone she met that New Year's Eve weekend. 'The main unanswered question that we have is how she got from her vehicle to the water,' Special Agent Rachel McGranaghan told the San Diego Union-Tribune, one of two naval investigators leading the case. 'We know her life ended in the water, in some circumstance, we just dont know how. 'Divorced and in and out of jobs, Vasta, who was born Marjorie Lee Thoreson in St Paul, Minnesota, had been living near her sister Susan Thoreson in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles.Ms Thoreson said her sister began showing signs of mental problems about six or eight years ago, suffering bouts of paranoia and anxiety, the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The former Penthouse model is believed to have left Los Angeles in the early hours of January 2 and driven south in a maroon 2001 Mazda 626 sedan, with many of her possessions packed in the trunk, the paper said.
Just before 6am, she rented a room at the Motel 6 on Raintree Drive, near South Carlsbad State Beach but never checked out. She drove around until 8.30am, making calls to family and friends, the last of which was from a the vicinity of where she parked her car. What happened after that is a mystery. When investigators discovered the Mazda, her phone and purse were still in it, as well as a blood-stained leopard-print blouse and a sports bra, which was wrapped in a plastic bag from the Motel 6, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
A steak knife with Vasta's blood on it was found by the passenger floorboard. Lithium and an empty bottle of Xanax were found in the car but an autopsy showed no drugs in the dead woman's body. The medical examiner reported shallow cuts on Vasta's wrists, consistent with a half-hearted suicide attempt. She also had two stab wounds on her chest, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
Susan Thoreson and Vasta's two other sisters, are convinced their sibling would not have killed herself and are troubled by the fact her neck and back were broken while she was still alive. They point to the fact she spoke daily with her daughter, who attends Florida State University, and say she still had plenty to live for. Her family believe Vasta's open nature could have led her into trouble. 'She's like a little girl out in the street. A stranger could walk by, and shell pick up a conversation with them,' Ms Thoreson told the San Diego Union-Tribune. Vasta played Messalina, a Roman empress, in Caligula, which was the first major movie to feature eminent film actors, including Helen Mirren, in explicit sex scenes.
In 1990 she won a ground-breaking victory over Guccione for sexual harassment. A New York judge awarded her more than $4 million, though on appeal the damages were determined to be non-recoverable and the court vacated the award.
SORRY END FOR WOMAN WHO WANTED TO BE 'SEXIEST IN WORLD'
Anneka Vasta was born Marjorie Lee Thoreson in July, 1952 in St. Paul, Minnesota.She dropped out of high school and moved to Los Angeles after her parents divorced in 1965, where she worked as a receptionist, a cocktail waitress, and a topless dancer.
She met Bob Guccione in 1973, and he agreed to make her the Pet of the Month for that September, flying her to New York, and then to London for photo shoots. The magazine publisher got her the role of Messalina in Caligula and Vasta, then going by the surname Di Lorenzo, is quoted as saying: 'How famous do I want to be? Let's just say that I'm going to be the sexiest woman in the world.'
But her career suffered from the backlash over Caligula and her final screen role was a small part as a nurse in Brian De Palma's Dressed to Kill. In 1988 she sued Guccione on charges of sexual harassment and he was found guilty of compelling her to have sex with two business associates. Despite being awarded the ground-breaking damages of $4million, Vasta only won a measly $4.06 after an appeal ruled money was not recoverable and vacated the award.
Guccione struck back at her by reprinting photos of Di Lorenzo and Lori Wagner's lesbian love scene from Caligula in the February 1991 issue of Penthouse.
COMMENTS (12/26/11): I've been sitting on these reports for two months, but only now have been able to post and comment on them. I thought the top article places the death of Anneka Vasta in its proper perspective. The coroner's report and the evidence just do not work together to make a case for either suicide or an accident. Also, how does one die of drowning when one has broken their neck first on land? Are we to believe Vasta, in the throes of a supreme suicidal urge, broke her neck (and back) and then somehow managed the effort to wade out into the water and drown herself? A broken neck would have finished her, and if not right away, would have paralysed her. With a broken back too, further movement, let alone having anything but the most basic vital life signs (and not for very long), would have been impossible.
Once again, we have a naked suicide of a woman, this time a woman with some degree of fame as a porn model, a porn actress, and a mainstream actress, although somewhat faded ... not merely the girlfriend of a CEO multi-millionaire who becomes famous in death by hanging herself bound and naked from a balcony window.
Anneka Vasta looked a good twenty years younger than her 58 years and reportedly had the body of a girl in her 20s (police thought she was a teenager when they found her body).
Other evidence in and near the car indicates a violent struggle (due to the blood) and a murder took place.
We may never know what happened, but the fact that she was naked, had a history of acting in porn, and her neck broken before being thrown in the water suggests sex was involved ... perhaps a model shoot by a serial killer posing as photographer or what was being presented to Vasta as an outdoors porno film shoot but was actually a snuff film.
We may never know for sure, but I think there is enough here to make this a PREDICTION FULFILLED or ... if time verifies the facts of the case ... at least a PARTIAL.
Of course Vasta and Zahau may have indeed been dress rehearsals by the Illuminati for a third murder in the near future of a female far more famous, a doomed blonde icon of Nostradamus prophecy, made to look like a suicide or accident.
Continue or return to previous position.
NEW PREDICTION: 1/3/10 -- For those of you who missed out on Comet McNaught in January 2007 because of bad weather conditions, snow, clouded skies, etc., another major comet of that scale should begin to be seen in March 2011. Unlike the great comet previously discussed that may appear in March 2010, which will be stunning but also cause much dread due to its close passage and possible fragmentation, this comet will be eye candy only and very bright and colourful. Its magnitude may reach that of McNaught, but even if it falls short of that it will be an imposing image in the sky, easily seen, and viewable for possibly two months or longer.
This will be the last great comet before the arrival of Planet X.
|Comet that survived
near-miss with Sun blazes a trail through night sky
Daily Mail Online
Last updated at 7:35 PM on 26th December 2011
Astronomers all over the world were left awe-struck by Comet Lovejoy's incredible close shave with the Sun as it came within 87,000 miles of its fiery surface last week.
And now, the comet's trajectory across the Earth's skies have been captured in dazzling detail by an astronomy enthusiast. Using only a simple digital camera with a long exposure to let more light in, these incredible images were taken by stargazer Alex Cherney as Comet Lovejoy blazed a trail through the night sky after appearing over the Earth's horizon.
Experts expected the comet, which is 1,600ft in diameter, to have vapourised when it passed through the Sun's intensely hot corona. However, it survived the close encounter intact and continued on its path through space.
The commander of the International Space Station took pictures of Lovejoy last week from his vantage point 240 miles above the Earth.
But Mr Cherney managed to capture the comet with its long, streaky tail from the ground at Cape Schanck, Victoria, Australia. Mr Cherney, a 36-year-old IT consultant, took advantage of the lack of light pollution from the remote peninsula on the south coast of Australia to record the dazzling scene. Mr Cherney said: 'Luckily Comet Lovejoy survived the near-miss with the Sun and it put on a magnificent display in the southern sky.'
It passed about 87,000 miles from the Sun on December 16 when it was supposed to have been obliterated but re-emerged out the other side of the corona. It lost its tail during the close encounter but developed a new one as it streaked away. The comet has been tracked all over the world since passing over the Earth, spotted in South America.
Dan Burbank, the commander of the International Space Station, saw the comet from a magnificent vantage point 240 miles above the Earths horizon. He described seeing the comet as the most amazing thing I have ever seen in space in an interview with WDIV-TV in Detroit.
Star gazers were left astonished when Comet Lovejoy survived its hellishly hot encounter with the Sun. The 660-foot-wide icy rock disappeared around the back side of the Sun, coming within 87,000 miles of its surface, and emerged triumphantly out the other side. Nasas Solar Dynamics Observatory caught the great escape on camera. After the dramatic event it tweeted: Breaking News! Lovejoy lives! The comet Lovejoy has survived its journey around the sun to reemerge on the other side.
Lovejoy was only discovered on November 27 this year and was named after the amateur Australian astronomer who spotted it, Terry Lovejoy. It is classed as a Kreutz sungrazer, which is a class of comet whose orbit comes very close to the Sun. They are named after the 19th-century German astronomer Heinrich Kreutz, who figured out that they are actually the remains of one huge comet that broke apart ...
This year's Christmas star: Comet Lovejoy shines
By Patricia Phillips
December 24, 2011
Despite predictions of dying in a crash with Earth's sun, Comet Lovejoy survived and is delighting skywatchers in the southern hemisphere.
Comet Lovejoy is making a guest appearance as a brand-new Christmas star at the European Southern Observatory's (ESO) Paranal Observatory. Among the images of Lovejoy's spectacular trip: a spectacular time-lapse sequence on Dec. 21 taken from the International Space Station.
Named for Australian amateur astronomer Terry Lovejoy, the comet was discovered on November 17. Last week, the comet skimmed the sun in a dive that experts predicted would be its demise.
Instead, Comet Lovejoy re-emerged and has been lighting up the southern skies.
"For me this comet is a Christmas present to the people who will stay at Paranal over Christmas," said ESO optician Guillaume Blanchard.
If you can't make it to Paranal, I've included a time-lapse video of Comet Lovejoy, courtesy of ESO at the observatory. If Comet Lovejoy survives its further travels, it will make another Earth appearance in approximately 314 years, experts say.
Lovejoy the 'Great Christmas Comet'
8:02AM Friday December 23, 2011
Skywatchers around the country continue to document Comet Lovejoy, visible from the naked eye in the South East sky.
Early morning travellers in commercial jets in Australia have also reported seeing the comet. In New Zealand early birds can view the spectacle after 3.30am, until sunrise.
Comet Lovejoy was discovered on December 2, by Australian Terry Lovejoy. Just one of thousands of star-grazing comets which burn up in the sun's atmosphere, Lovejoy proved unique by passing through without disappearing.
Its long visible tail is a vapour caused by the sun, and experts warn that now is the time to view it, as the further it travels from the sun the smaller the tail will become.
Whether the comet warrants the moniker 'great' may be a debate for the Christmas dinner. There's no scientific definition of a 'great comet', but generally the term is applied to comets which are visible to the naked eye, and spectacular.
Recent great comets include McNaught in 2007, Hale-Bopp in 1997, and Ikeya-Seki in 1965.
And for the superstitious, tradition has it that a great comet heralds the death of a tyrant, as North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il lies in state.
Lucky comet provides early Xmas treat for stargazers
7:10AM Thursday December 22, 2011
Sky watchers are in for an early Christmas treat, with the Comet Lovejoy visible to the naked eye.
Lovejoy originally seemed destined for a fiery end, flying into the sun's super hot atmosphere.
But it confounded the predictions of experts: while passing only 120,000 km from the sun's surface, Lovejoy came out intact.
Video footage from NASA shows the comet being buffeted by the solar forces.
The comet is now visible from the Southern Hemisphere, its plume appearing like a searchlight beam in the South East sky.
And over the next few days
the comet will become more impressive, as it will
But keen star gazers will have to contend with an early morning start - the comet rises at 3.30am.
Noel Munford, Publicity Officer at the Palmerston North Astronomical Society says that in terms of impressiveness Comet Lovejoy is getting close to the spectacular Comet McNaught seen a few years ago.
Munford says while it's an early start, the spectacular sight is well worth getting up to appreciate, especially if you take a short drive away from the glare of the city lights.
Comet Lovejoy surprises red eye flyers this morning
Great Christmas Comet of 2011 surprises red eye flyers
Pilots and passengers have reported the appearance of a great comet in the pre dawn skies from flights between Perth and the eastern cities this morning.
The ghostly crescent tail, rising like a searchlight above the eastern horizon, is that of Comet Lovejoy, and if skies clear over eastern Australian skies in coming mornings, the comet is likely to be easily observed by early risers, as it has been in the dark northern hemisphere skies by millions of surprised commuters.
Comet Lovejoy will be easy to see from almost anywhere in the world except extreme southern and northern latitudes in the following days if the skies clear.
Named after Australian astronomer Terry Lovejoy who discovered it on 2 December it may well become the Great Christmas Comet of 2011 if it continues to perform until Sunday morning. It is has already surprised millions of pre dawn travellers in the northern hemisphere where the sun doesnt rise until much later in the morning in wintery skies.
Comet Lovejoy is the third great comet since the October 1965 appearance of Ikeya-Seki and Comet McNaught in January and February of 2007. The term great comet has been used subjectively in the literature whenever one of them is especially visible.
Halleys Comet was a great comet in 1910, but not in 1986, when it followed a more distant and thus fainter trajectory as seen from the earth.
Like Ikeya-Seki in 1965, Comet Lovejoy is believed to be a large fragment of a gigantic comet that broke up in the inner solar system in 1106, forming a cloud of debris that became known as the Kreutz family of sungrazer comets.
Kreutz sungrazers are commonly detected by sun observing satellites and telescopes plunging close to the solar disk and being evaporated by the intensity of the approach. Most of them are believed to be only a few metres across, and unable to withstand the ferocious heat of a close encounter with the sun.
However like Ikeya-Seki in 1965 the solid nucleus of Comet Lovejoy is believed to be hundreds of metres across, and large enough to survive the close passage even while huge amounts of frozen gases and dust were blasted off its surface or driven out of its substructure to create the spectacle of a great comet as it heads back to the outer solar system and beyond.
(Ikeya-Seki was seen to break apart in 1966 as it receded from the sun.)
Kreutz class sungrazers are highly unpredictable in their behavior. Comet Loveyjoy might completely disintegrate into a brief dazzling display, or just fade to black in coming days or weeks.
Amateur astronomer photos like that taken by Colin Legg in Mandurah near Perth this morning (above) are being posted on Space Weather, together with sky maps that are updated to show the comets location in the same part of the sky as the moon, which is becoming a crescent pre dawn moon in the coming days, and bright stars and visible planets.
Legg has also posted a time lapse set of wide sky images showing Lovejoy rising tail first in the sky this morning.
Australias IceinSpace amateur astronomy site has a forum on which members are posting their Comet Lovejoy images here.
Of course for the superstitious, Comet Lovejoy enhances the legendary association of bright comets with the death of tyrants and kings, given the departure of Kim Jong-il.
COMMENTS (12/22/11): At the moment Comet Lovejoy is already as bright as Comet McNaught was in January 2007. Unfortunately for northern viewers this is currently a southern hemisphere comet only. Even so, it is being dubbed "The Great Christmas Comet of 2011" ... which means it has already blown away the likes of Holmes (also in 2007), Hale-Bopp (1997), Hyukutake (1996), and West (1976) in brightness. As the comet progresses northwards, we shall see if it will be as great here as either Ikeya-Seki (1965) or McNaught.
Many of you, myself included, believed this prediction for a "Great Comet of 2011" was a failure when the much anticipated Comet Elenin crumbled to pieces. However, history manages to find a way of repeating itself even when the promising candidate for its fulfillment fails to deliver.
It matters little to me if Comet Lovejoy becomes as great a comet in the northern hemisphere as in the southern. Many parts of the northern hemisphere were cheated out of seeing Comet McNaught in all its glory in January 2007 due to perpetual cloudy winter skies. Those who managed to see it in the North in places like Scandinavia or in US states like Arizona or Colorado had unfettered viewing (and always have clear skies). City dwellers on the East Coast were not so fortunate.
Statistically, Lovejoy is the third "great comet" since Halley in 1910 ... like it or not (and if it does put on a good show later in the North, you will like it). This is a prediction that may get a lot better for everyone. We shall see. It is now, nevertheless, a PREDICTION FULFILLED.
Continue or return to previous position.
Nostradamus, Quatrain 3.5 ~
NEW PREDICTION: 12/26/09 -- Unfortunately, although the Comet of 2011 will be regarded as a treat, the sudden development of two asteroids heading towards earth will be cause for alarm.
This prediction might be considered, conveniently so, thanks to the base 7 system, a protection against two comets or two comet fragments threatening the earth in March 2010. If it is, the large ancient comet that approaches earth in March 2010 will not fragment, will pass earth harmlessly, and the Garabandal prophecy known as The Warning will not occur at that time. It remains possible the comet itself, not in two fragments but one single large body, will still threaten to come dangerously close to earth, close enough to warrant President Obama giving the "Deep Impact" speech I predicted. Even so, it is still quite likely it will pass without harming earth.
But that all depends on the failure or success of this prediction.
Instead of two comets or comet fragments threatening earth in March 2010, in March 2011, two large asteroids will approach earth, either passing or impacting earth on the same day.
Again, because there will be two asteroids involved, the 'The Warning' portion of the Garabandal prophecy could occur at this time rather than in 2010. That would mean the asteroids would impact each other in space at what would barely be a safe distance away from earth.
Purportedly two small asteroids hit Allentown, PA and Hanoverton, Ohio at the same time, same day: February 10, 2011.
COMMENTS (4/7/11): The binary asteroid flyby yesterday, April 6, 2011, is the third notable "red alert" of the Garabandal Warning prophecy since two asteroids passed close to earth on September 8, 2010. The second, more deadly, "red alert" occurred on February 10, 2011, when two small asteroids, NEA 2011 CA7 and NEA 2011 CZ3, purportedly crashed into Pennsylvania and Ohio at the same time. The media cover story was that these were natural gas explosions. The two asteroids in question were quite small, but not so small that they could not each wipe out an area the size of a city block ... much like the swarm of meteorites that strike NYC early in the film Armageddon. The video at right of the YouTube radio discussion of the events shows both the OH and PA explosions and also the extent of the damage, injuries and deaths that occurred in PA. The still photo at left of the audio interview shows a government-cleared image of the site released to the media, making it appear not all that bad.
The asteroids that passed yesterday in our third "red alert" were revolving around each other as a binary system ... quite dangerous indeed if anything like that would strike Earth. The article more or less tells us that each of the two was 1/2 to 1/3 as powerful as the Tunguska asteroid that struck Siberia in 1908. That is not good ... Tunguska exploded like a 30 megaton nuclear bomb, leveling and incinerating forests, and a few villages, for 830 square miles in area. Thus the binary asteroids could have each had a combined whallop of 10 or 20 megaton nuclear bombs, striking Earth 2 1/2 hours apart.
Thus, each "red alert" is becoming increasingly more catastrophic as we draw closer to Planet X late this year or late next. If this kind of phenomenon continues to escalate, we may one day, very soon, actually see two large space rocks with the naked eye, each one large enough to destroy an entire US state or a small country. A large asteroid of this type, PHA 2005 YU55, one quarter of a mile long, is on course to narrowly miss the Earth on November 8, 2011 ... almost the same day Comet Elenin is also to pass (November 6, 2011). No other asteroid the size of 2005 YU55 is currently expected to pass as close to Earth in our near future except Apophis in 2029 and 2036. As for Elenin, astronomers have revised the distance the comet will "miss" from 8.8 AU to 0.24 AU to 0.15 AU ... and the distance continues to be recalculated smaller and smaller.
Obviously it is possible another, as of yet, undiscovered heavyweight asteroid could show up near Earth around the same time as 2005 YU55. Perhaps Comet Elenin will exert magnetic pull on 2005 YU55 causing it to split into two fragments or bring a large space rock in its debris trail that will cut loose and zoom in on 2005 YU55 and our planet. Or, perhaps Elenin and 2005 YU55 will head towards earth, clashing together in space.
What I am saying is that these "red alerts" of double asteroid passages or "small" impacts are OMINOUS ... omens or portents ... of the Garabandal "warning" prophecy of the two stars that clash together. It does not matter if one "star" is an asteroid and the other "star" is a comet, or if both "stars" are asteroids, the effect will terrifying. All we can do is hope that they will do what prophecy says they will do, sparing us an ELE or something approaching an ELE.
I note that because the nature of my prediction is that two asteroids large enough to do tremendous damage will pass Earth fairly simultaneously or strike Earth at the same time, technically that has been a PREDICTION FULFILLED twice! We do not consider the two that passed Earth back in September 2010 as being a fulfillment because they actually were too small to do any real damage and would have burned up as fireballs in our upper atmosphere. But the two touchdowns in PA and OH in February 2011 did cause notable destruction, and the binary asteroids that passed us by yesterday were capable of large destruction (1/2 to 1/3 of Tunguska each). Thus, these are "red alerts" for a Garabandal scenario, but fulfillments of my personal prediction.
WILL THE WARNING OF GARABANDAL PLAY OUT BETWEEN OCTOBER 7 AND NOVEMBER 2, 2011???
Elenin and Honda to be visible together this Fall
Published on August 19, 2011 8:05 am PT
- By Richard McMillan -
(TheWeatherSpace.com) -- Comet Honda and Elenin will be visible together before sunrise this Fall.
Comet Honda is only visible to Southern sky observers at the current moment. However, on October 7th of this year the comet will join Comet Elenin on the eastern horizon making for a rare treat.
Both comets should be around five or six magnitude, making it easy for binoculars and cameras to see them, including the unaided eye in a dark sky location.
COMMENTS (8/20/11): The report is brief, but along with the graphic it is chilling. According to other reports, on October 8, 2011, Honda and Elenin will cross paths with each other! I know my interpretation of the Warning of Garabandal has always been that of two asteroids heading towards earth colliding in space ("two stars that crash and make a lot of noise, and a lot of light -- but they don't fall"). I have, in the past, applied this concept also to comet fragments (as was the case in May 2006 and the breakup of Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann). Thus far, despite Schwassmann-Wachmann breaking into two large fragments and a lot of little ones as it passed earth five years ago, and despite three close calls with two asteroids almost merging paths and passing earth at the same time in the last year, we have been fortunate.
Now we have two comets approaching us in the autumn, intersecting with earth's orbit on November 2 ... two comets that will also closely cross paths on October 8. Perhaps at some point between October 8 and November 2 they may even collide with each other. And it appears they may be bright ... Honda will reach naked eye visibility in late September and through October, how bright could change from the prognosis of fifth or sixth magnitude if it goes into outburst. Elenin, on the other hand, is brightening more greatly than anticipated and no one knows how bright it will be in October.
I do not think it is an accident the graphic above was used. It tells the whole story I suspect, and is not simply hype or a clever way of showing an event to come. We all know that Nasa hates false advertising and sensationalising events they believe will likely turn out to be "wimpy" ... so why is a Nasa affiliate representing Comets Elenin and Honda in such a spectacular manner? Why do they appear so large and bright in the graphic if they really will be of rather low magnitude?? We have two months before we know ... then everyone will know.

NEW PREDICTION: 9/2/10 -- My prediction that North Korea would sink a US ship in March 2010 was partially fulfilled when it sank a South Korean vessel. Another prediction that China and North Korea would threaten war, beginning in March 2010, against South Korea and the United States has also been largely fulfilled, although Taiwan has yet to be directly threatened by Beijing. On the verge of actually going to war, but falling short (as hoped) in August 2010, the crisis between countries continues to build as North Korea and China strengthen military ties. If the crisis continues to build, rather than turn into total war, or if North Korea and South Korea go to war, but China holds back from taking action against Taiwan and the US, then it appears that it at this point, March 2011, that the United States will have to take action to evacuate Taiwan and the surrounding islands.

NEW PREDICTION: 1/5/10 -- Welcome again, my friends! It is I, "Do" (formerly Marshall Applewhite), reporting to you from the mother ship Hale-Bopp. Greetings from the Level Above Human! And a special salute to all my good friends in Bridgend and surrounding regions! So many earthly containers shed ... my 38 associates and I are proud of your endeavours! By all means, we encourage you to continue instructing the many lost souls of your weary world in the proper method of self-disposal and transmutation into our realm.
Mmmmm .. and get a load of those exquisitely alluring South Korean babes ... so many suitable containers lining up one after the other for that special brand of Bridgend-style inter-dimensional and extra-spacial travel. Hee, hee, hey Gerald, how's prison life been treating you? You must be feeling pretty sore (pardon the pun). Just think, if you had only been a bit more patient, you could have invited famous film stars and pop singers and supermodels to that private Valentine's Day party of yours! What was that password now ... "Fidelio" right? Hey, that's pretty original! Now, for example, take that delicious model Jenny Grant and that luscious Lucy Gordon actress ... were they ever hot to trot! Just picture this, Gerald, you might have even persuaded them to join you and all those other "dream girls" at that run-down trailer trash facility you used to call "home." And if you're into guys, you might have invited my favourite Kung Fu actor, David Carradine ... now there's a real Marshall arts expert! Marshall as in Marshall Applewhite, that is! *LOL*
Anyway, it seems another comet is coming to escort all of you from this veil of tears and to the Level Above Human. But this time around there are going to be many, many more of our brothers and sisters from various disciplines and faiths not unlike our own Heaven's Gate fellowship who will be shedding their earthly containers around the time of March 2011. I dare say, there could be many millions, possibly even a billion people who will ... simply vanish into thin air! Also, possibly on the very same day, the earthly containers of millions of others will be discovered empty ... Bridgend style!
They will call this "The Rapture" I have been told, but it will actually be ... something else!
Oh yes, my dear friends, it does appear there are many other people out there who will be all too eager to assist you in shedding those pesky earthly containers. Indeed, it would appear some of them will derive great pleasure in being so very helpful! But as I always say, why hang out in Rome when there's always the Bangkok Hotel!
Although I am not at liberty to say exactly why this will happen, it may be related to the glorious starship that will be appearing in your heavens in March and April 2011. Then again, it may be something disagreeable one of your world leaders has to say to all of you ... about a certain object from space some of you have been discussing and dreading for quite some time now. Sorry I can provide no further details, but even here at "the level above human" we are kept in the dark about a great many things.
So, don't be "left behind" this time around: invite a friend or two out for a charcoal barbecue, preferably in an enclosed area, but if that is too coarse for your taste, your favourite apple sauces and puddings should more than suffice. Why not try my special Applewhite sauce ... with a dash of cinnamon-flavoured phenobarbital! Or take that ultimate vacation and enjoy the scenery and customs of rustic Bridgend or exotic Bangkok, and hang out with the stars! While you're there, take some time out to shop and buy some nice new Nike sneakers, because "Ti" and I will be "swinging" by your way very soon to pick up more eager "air dancers" and space travellers before the great catastrophe that is to befall your planet.
Please view this special VIDEO MESSAGE from
me to you ... the people of Planet Earth!!
Start shedding those containers and come with us ... before it is too late!
Here are the reports of suicides, thus far, attributed to Harold Camping's Rapture/End of the World prophecy ... below these is a strange report from Wisconsin that may indicate The Rapture (or something made to look like The Rapture) has begun and is continuing ...
Camping's May 21 'doomsday' prompts suicides
International Business Times
May 26, 2011 9:48 PM EDT
Harold Camping's May 21 doomsday prediction prompted rash reactions from many around the world, with at least two suicides.
A 14-year-old teen from Russia has committed suicide due to fear of the pending rapture.
Victor Frasno of Antioch, California demanded on Saturday night to return to the reservoir where he had spent the day discussing spirituality with family and jumped into the water and drowned.
The two mark the first of reports of rash behavior surrounding Camping's prediction.
Harold Camping preached that on 6:00 pm, May 21, God's chosen people will be raptured but those left behind on earth will suffer from catasclymic disasters that will culminate in the ultimate destruction of the world on October 21, 2011.
Lyudmila, the mother of the Russian Teen, told Lifenews "She took this date too close to heart." According to Russia's state-owned news agency, RIA Novosti, the girl reportedly hanged herself out of fear of Camping's prediction.
Investigator Alexander Kosharin said the girl's behavior changed dramatically when she learned about the radio preacher's predictions, according to RIA Novosti. Nastya's diary revealed how terrified she was of the suffering that was to come, and believed she was not one of the "righteous" people that will be taken up to heaven.
"Whales are trying to beach themselves and birds are dying - it is just the beginning of the end," wrote Zachinova in her last entry, as reported by RIA Novosti. "We are not righteous people, only they will go to heaven, the others will stay here on Earth to go through terrible sufferings," she wrote. "I don't want to die like the others. That's why I'll die now."
For Frasno, Detective Holly Sontag said he had no direct ties to Camping's Family Radio but asserted that talk of the imminent apocalypse likely influenced Frasno. "I believe it probably had something to do with the rapture because this wasn't his normal behavior," Sontag told the Mercury News.
"We dont advice anybody what to do. We are not in the business of financial advice," said Harold Camping at an Open Forum of Family Radio on Monday, May 23, 2011.
Investigators Believe Harold Camping's Rapture Prediction to Blame for Fla. Man's Death
The Christian Post > U.S.|Thu, May. 26 2011 06:00 PM EDT
Investigators looking into the circumstances of the death of a young man from Florida are suspecting Harold Campings rapture prediction and the publicity generated by the Family Radio mans followers may have pushed him over the edge.
Victor Frasno, 25, described by investigators as very religious, was staying with family in California when he became hysterical as Harold Campings Judgment Day was about to arrive hours later. Despite the fact that he couldnt swim, he jumped into the huge reservoir in Contra Loma Regional Park, Antioch saying he had to get to God.
Frasnos body was recovered from the reservoir just moments before midnight as May 21st, Campings predicted day of rapture, was about to arrive.
Investigators are suggesting that the aggressive global advertising campaign and vast coverage given to Campings prediction is to blame. Detective Holly Sontag, told the Contra Costa Times, I believe it probably had something to do with the rapture because this wasn't his normal behavior.
On May 20th, Frasno visited the park with family when he started to gradually behave more and more erratically. Detective Sontag stated, He (Frasno) started talking about God profoundly, but nothing abnormal at that point.
The group then went back to an apartment where Frasno watched a video about UFOs while quoting verses from the book of Ezekiel. Frasno then insisted the group return to the park.
Detective Sontag said, He told his family that he now understood the Bible and that God was going to come to see him.
At that point he dived into the reservoir saying that God was waiting for him on the other side. Frasnos brother and his wife jumped in to rescue him, but although they were able to initially drag him out, the disturbed man managed to jump back in and tried to take his brother with him.
Detective Sontag explained that Frasno had not been drinking, and was not taking any prescription drugs, and had no history of mental illness at all. She concluded, The family never said anything related to rapture, but our sense is that was probably what happened.
Teen kills herself ahead of foretold rapture
25 May, 2011, 13:22
A 14-year-old girl from the Republic of Mari El in Central Russia has committed suicide, allegedly because she was afraid of the upcoming doomsday, predicted by the American radio preacher Harold Camping.
Nastya Zachinova believed the news that the world would end on May 21, her family told the tabloid LifeNews. The once lively teenager became angsty and withdrawn. On the Saturday in which the rapture had been predicted to start, she committed suicide after returning home from school.
Her personal diary shows she was terrified of the perils of the apocalypse, which she believed humanity was about to endure.
We are not righteous; only the righteous will go to heaven, and well stay on earth and face terrible suffering, one of the entries says.
A farewell text message says she didnt want to die with everyone else and would take her life in advance. She took this date too close to heart, Nastyas mother Lyudmila told the tabloid.
Police are currently gathering reports from Nastyas friends. They believe somebody may have been behind the terror which haunted the girl in her final days.
Harold Camping and his supporters launched a world-wide campaign to inform humanity about the upcoming rapture, the date of which he predicted based on a series of convoluted calculations taken from the bible. A few ads promoting his message were put on billboards in Russia as well.
After the prediction proved false, Camping recanted his original claim, stating that the end of the world will now come in October.
Man Commits Suicide by Crucifixion in Anticipation of Rapture
God Hates Atheists
Posted on May 25, 2011 by Alex
A man was found dead, nailed to a cross in an abandoned quarry in South Korea wearing only underpants and a crown of thorns, committed suicide by crucifixion unaided, investigators have concluded. Police say the 58-year-old taxi driver apparently nailed his feet to the cross while standing on a small foot rest before stabbing himself in the side and piercing his hands with a power drill. With his chest lashed to the cross, he then slipped his pierced hands over nails.
Forensic experts reconstructed the mans death using notes he had left at the scene. Neighbors described the man, who was found a week after Easter, as a religious fanatic, the Korea Times reports. We believe that deep religious faith made it possible to carry out the series of extraordinary actions involving extreme pain, police said, adding that the cause of death was suffocation and blood loss from the wound in his side.
prank? Clothing with burn marks found at Olin-Turville
State Journal, Capital Times staff
May 26, 2011 7:15 pm
Madison police are investigating a strange find Sunday in Olin-Turville Park where 30 sets of clothes, some with burn marks, along with wallets, watches and keys, were found in a circle the day after the Rapture was predicted to take place.
Clothing with apparent burn marks along with such personal effects as wallets, watches and keys was found Sunday on the largest hill of Olin-Turville Park, according to a Madison police report that quickly gained attention Thursday, circulating on Facebook, Twitter and media websites.
But a simple Google search revealed that people across the world undertook similar actions in response to the declaration by a fringe California preacher that last Saturday certain Christians would be transported to heaven.
Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain played along, writing an uncharacteristically long and descriptive report that he posted to the Internet on Thursday afternoon. We have not received any reports of missing people yet, DeSpain said later in an interview.
Area arts advocates were delighted.
How fabulous that we have such creative people in Madison. And we hope people can apply that creativity to real events, said Anne Katz, executive director of the advocacy group Arts Wisconsin, noting that even DeSpain got in on the act. We all need a good laugh these days.
Karin Wolf, Madison arts administrator, said the Olin-Turville display was not funded by Blink!, a city public art program.
It started like this: A local resident called the police Sunday after seeing the items in the park on the shore of Lake Monona. The responding officer found about 30 sets of clothing. It was as if people had been on their backs and vanished in their birthday (suits), leaving all material possessions behind, DeSpain said in the report. There were wrist watches where arms should have been and sets of keys in pants pockets.
quoted the officer describing burn marks on the clothing,
which was spread out in a circular fashion: All
outfits ... were perfectly laid out as if the people
wearing them had met with some sort of forceful and
The officer put on protective gloves to examine the clothing and found a kind of business or calling card that depicted an ark-like vessel with lines coming from it. In the middle of the circle was a black cylinder-shaped object, which the officer called a Beacon of Light, that emitted a strobe-like white light toward the heavens.
The officer called for a sergeant to come to the scene to verify the findings.
Police are no longer investigating the incident, DeSpain said.

May Have Sacrificed Her Son in Preparation for the
Sandra Rose | Thursday, May 19, 2011
On Saturday Maine police found the body of a small, blond, blue eyed boy wrapped in a blanket alongside a remote dirt road in South Berwick, Maine, near the New Hampshire border. The child seemed to be well nourished and well cared for before he died. But police were puzzled because no one had come forward to report the tyke missing. The story made the evening news across the country.
A tip was called into the police after a computer-generated image of the boy wearing a t-shirt with the words Aviator Series, was broadcast nationwide on Monday. The mystery of the dead blond boy was solved on Wednesday when a state trooper approached a blue pickup truck at a highway rest stop two states away in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. The truck matched the description of a blue truck that was seen in the area where the body was found.
The woman inside the truck had a confession she wanted to get off her chest: I killed my son. I want to kill myself, she told the state trooper. Julianne McCrery, 42, was placed under arrest. She had been sitting in her truck reading a bible when she was arrested.
The boy was identified by various media outlets as Camden Pierce Hughes, age 6, McCrerys son. McCrery, of Texas, told police that she gave Camden too much cough medicine. But an autopsy revealed the boy died of asphyxiation (suffocation) ...

NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- Now the boxing gloves come off finally. There no longer will be a shred of doubt about the existence of alien spacecraft. Huge armadas of disk-shaped crafts, flying saucers, will be seen in cities and capitals all over the world simultaneously ... and not as little dots either, but close up, big enough to see their shapes and contours very clearly. Some may even land, but those piloting will not come out. Hundreds of millions will witness the alien demonstration in March 2011. All previous sightings will pale in comparison. Yet the occupants will not make contact still ... at least not publicly. But it won't end here either. This almost has to happen for all the UFO-related predictions I have already made on the 2012 (Part One) page to happen ... and this will be the time.

NEW PREDICTION: 8/30/09 -- I remain convinced that the world's three active supervolcanoes will erupt as a result of interactions between Earth and Planet X, probably before the current Mayan cycle ends December 21, 2012. Mother Shipton appears to be addressing these three volcanoes in her shorter prophesy. The Lake Toba super-eruption, the first of the three, will kill tens of millions when it blows in April 2011. Next will come the eruption of the caldera at the Phlegrean Fields in March 2012. The third supervolcano to erupt in sequence, Yellowstone, will be associated with the initial opening of the sixth seal of Revelation and will likely explode in June 2012.
Indonesia has experienced a massive magnitude 7.7 earthquake, a tsunami that wiped out 10 villages and killed 40 people, and the first of what may be a number of increasingly more powerful volcanic eruptions of Mt. Merapi ... all in the space of a few hours.
The long dormant supervolcanic caldera at Lake Toba has shown signs of minor stirring in recent months, as has Yellowstone in the United States. This event is a RED ALERT that the unthinkable, an eruption of Toba, may yet happen in April 2011 or sooner.

OLD PREDICTION: 9/18/03, UPDATED 6/21/09 -- A massive earthquake strikes Mortara, thirty miles northwest of Milan. It will be accompanied by major flooding in southern Italy. The city of Florence will be submerged. 113,000 people will die immediately from the earthshock alone. The temblor will be so powerful that a seismic reaction will reach England herself, sinking Cornwall and the Scilly Islands. Most commentators agree that "the temple" referred to is Westminster Abbey, built upon the site of the ancient Temple of Apollo. The description of huge fissures cracking open at the location indicates that a major quake will also rock the city of London. The series of quakes and floods should begin with a bang on Easter Sunday, April 24, 2011.
|Italy quake kills 7; survivors huddle in tents, cars|
|May 20, 2012
-- Updated 2251 GMT (0651 HKT)
Finale Emilia, Italy (CNN) -- Thousands of survivors huddled in tents or in their cars under rainy skies early Monday following a weekend earthquake that killed seven people across northern Italy.
Aftershocks rattled the country's industrial heartland throughout Sunday evening following the magnitude-6.0 quake that struck around 4 a.m. (10 p.m. Saturday ET). The head of Italy's Civil Protection Department, Franco Gabrielli, said 11,000 people had been displaced after the quake, with the government putting 3,000 of them up in tents or hotels.
In Finale Emilia, about 35 km (21 miles) north of Bologna, 75 people were sleeping in cars in a public park. One of them was Filomenna Gatti, who planned tto cram into a Fiat Punto with her husband and three children under 6. "I close my eyes and I see stones falling and I feel the ground shaking when it's still," Gatti said as she walked her dog. "I don't want to be in any building."
Minister Mario Monti was expected to return from the NATO
summit in Chicago on Monday, his government announced
Sunday. Monti annoucned Sunday he was leaving the
conference early, vowing, "All that is necessary
will be done as soon as possible" to help the
The quake was centered about 4 kilometers (2.4 miles) outside Camposanto, northwest of Bologna, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. In addition to the seven reported fatalities, 50 people were injured in the quake, Gabrielli said.
The stricken region is part of Italy's industrial heartland, and the dead included two people killed in a ceramics factory in Sant'Agostino di Ferrara, about 30 km from the epicenter, civil protection agency spokeswoman Elisabetta Maffani said. Workers were still digging through rubble in hopes of finding survivors in Sant'Agostino, where the quake knocked down a church bell and a magnitude-4.8 aftershock brought down part of its city hall Sunday evening.
have just lost our history. Four generations of my family
lived here, and now it's gone," 72-year-old Luciano
Frendo said as he walked through Finale Emila. "Our
history has collapsed."
The civil protection agency said it expects to get more reports of injuries as rescue workers make their way to remote villages in the mountainous area. Heavy rain was expected to continue into Tuesday after hampering rescue efforts and efforts to spot survivors from the air.
Other deaths included one person killed when a work shed collapsed in nearby Ponte Rodoni di Bondeno, Maffani said. In addition, a woman in Bologna died of a heart attack during an evacuation, a Moroccan national died when the factory he was working in collapsed and a sixth victim was found dead under rubble in Sant'Agostino, she said. The body of a seventh victim was located under a collapsed house, according to Alessio Bellodi of the civil protection branch in Bologna.
The same area was struck by a 5.3-magnitude quake in January. And a 6.3-magnitude earthquake struck near the central Italian city of L'Aquila, more than 400 km to the south, in 2009, killing more than 300 and causing widespread destruction.
|Earthquake kills 7 in north Italy -- 'Worst quake to hit the region since the 1300s'|
Press | Sunday, May 20, 2012 7:45 pm
SANT'AGOSTINO DI FERRARA, Italy -- A magnitude-6.0 earthquake shook several small towns in northeast Italy Sunday, killing seven people, knocking down a clock tower and other centuries-old buildings and causing millions in losses to the region known for making Parmesan cheese.
The quake struck at 4:04 a.m., with its epicenter about 22 miles north of Bologna at a relatively shallow depth of 3.2 miles, the U.S. Geological Survey said. Civil protection agency official Adriano Gumina described it as the worst quake to hit the region since the 1300s.
The four people killed were factory workers on the overnight shift when their buildings, in three separate locations, collapsed, agency chief Franco Gabrielli said, In addition, he said, two women died -- apparently of heart attacks that may have been sparked by fear. Sky TG24 TV reported one of them was about 100 years old. Gabrielli said dozens of people were injured.
Two of the dead were workers at a ceramics factory in the town of Sant'Agostino di Ferrara. Their cavernous building turned into a pile of rubble, leaving twisted metal supports jutting out at odd angles and the roof mangled.
immense damage, but the worst part is we lost two
people," fellow worker Stefano Zeni said. News
reports said one of the dead had worked the shift of an
ill colleague. Elsewhere in the town, another worker was
found dead under factory rubble.
In the town of Ponte Rodoni di Bondeno, a worker also died as his factory collapsed, emergency workers told Italian news agencies.
Premier Mario Monti, in Chicago for the NATO summit, told reporters he was returning to Italy before the meeting ends because of the quake.
The quake struck in the farm region known for production of Parmigiano and Grana cheeses. Italy's farm lobby Coldiretti said that some 200,000 huge, round cheeses were damaged, causing a loss to producers of 50 million ($65 milion). It also said in a statement that at least three barn roofs collapsed, trapping an unspecified number of pigs and milk cows inside.
Emilio Bianco, receptionist at Modena's Canalgrande hotel -- housed in an ornate 18th-century palazzo -- said the quake "was a strong one, and it lasted quite a long time." The hotel suffered no damage and the Modena province itself was spared, but guests spilled into the streets as soon as the quake hit, he said.
Sant'Agostino. resident Alberto Fiorini said there was
"pandemonium" during the night. "I took
shelter under the bed and I prayed," he said.
Mohamed Atzerc, also from Sant'Agostino, said he had feared for the safety of his three small children. "They were crying. A wardrobe collapsed in front of the door. The light went out and I thought that everything was collapsing on my children," who were unharmed, he said. Many people were still awake at 4 a.m. and milling about town since stores and restaurants were open all night.
The epicenter was between the towns of Finale Emilia, San Felice sul Panaro and Sermide, but the quake was felt as far away as Tuscany and northern Alto Adige.
One woman on the outskirts of Finale Emilia told Sky her 5-year-old daughter was trapped on her bed by the bricks of a 14th-century tower that toppled onto their home. Firefighters and other rescuers freed the child without a scratch after two hours. A supporting beam had protected her from falling rubble, rescuers and the mother said.
Nearly 12 hours after the quake, a sharp aftershock alarmed the residents of Sant'Agostino di Ferrara and knocked off part of a wall of city hall. The building already had been pummeled by the pre-dawn quake, which left a gaping hole on one side of it. The same aftershock knocked down most of the clock tower in the town of Finale Emilia, injuring a firefighter and leaving only half the clock affixed. Sky TG24 showed the firefighter lying in the street near the rubble. The national geophysics institute assigned an initial magnitude of 5.1 to the aftershock.
The quake Sunday came as Italy was still reeling from Saturday's bombing that killed a 16-year-old girl at a school in the country's south. Pope Benedict XVI, in his traditional Sunday appearance from his studio window overlooking St. Peter's Square, said he was "spiritually close" to those affected by the quake, and asked people to join him in prayers for the dead and injured.
The initial quake was followed around an hour later by a 5.1-magnitude temblor, USGS said. It was preceded by a magnitude-4.1 temblor. In 2009, a temblor killed more than 300 people in the central city of L'Aquila, where the historic center is still largely uninhabited and in ruins.
COMMENTS (5/21/12): This is the one I had in mind, although it is a year late. I don't know if this is the same quake Nostradamus foresaw happening in northern Italy or not; if it is then there should be major and historical flooding in Great Britain soon. No one seems very sure where "the tin isles" are, their original meaning obscured by time, and have ventured a guess that they may be a reference to western England, Cornwall, and/or the Scillies. Irregardless, there should also be an earthquake or some other sort of seismic event in London. Also, if this really is the earthquake of Quatrain 9.31, it misses Easter by a month.
As can be seen above, the text of my prediction almost exclusively focused on Nostradamus' prophecy. Time may yet tell if the rest will come true. However, the basis for determining the dating for Quatrain 9.31 was my belief that a major quake would rock northern Italy, one of historical proportions. According to seismologists, this was the most destructive quake to hit the region since the 1300s ... some 200 years before Nostradamus predicted a big one for the future. Thus, this was the worst quake to strike northern Italy since Nostradamus inked his predictions ... and the worst since 200 years prior to his writing them. That is why I would warn caution now. The events I thought would occur around Easter of 2011 may be happening NOW.
Whether or not that is the case, this earthquake does fulfill the basic intention of my prediction before adding Nostradamus into the mix: a major, deadly, and historic earthquake will rock northern Italy. Now it has. Thus, it is a PREDICTION FULFILLED.
As for Nostradamus, we wait to see if more related events take place.
RED ALERT: KILLER QUAKE STRIKES SPAIN ... WILL ITALY BE NEXT???
|Eight dead after
earthquake hits Spain
May 12, 2011 -- Updated 0005 GMT (0805 HKT)
Madrid (CNN) -- Thousands of residents of the southeastern Spanish city of Lorca slept outside Wednesday night, hours after the city of about 80,000 was struck by an earthquake that killed eight people, state radio reported, citing authorities. "It was a strange sensation," said a press office worker who was in his office in the regional capital of Murcia, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Lorca. He estimated the duration of the quake from five to eight seconds.
The 5.1-magnitude quake occurred at 6:47 p.m. (12:47 p.m. ET) and was centered about 50 kilometers (31 miles) southwest of Murcia, near the Mediterranean coast, the U.S. Geological Survey said. That is about 350 kilometers (218 miles) south-southeast of Madrid. It was preceded at 5:05 p.m. (11:05 a.m. ET) by a 4.5-magnitude temblor centered in the same area, the survey said.
At least one of the deaths occurred in a building collapse in Lorca, state-run EFE said.
Television pictures showed the belfry of an old church collapsing soon after the earthquake, as well as fallen bricks on top of damaged cars there. Buildings with broken windows and piles of rubble in the streets of Lorca could also be seen. The press office said a hospital in Lorca had been evacuated as a precaution. Many of those who were spending the night outside said they were afraid to return to their houses or had been advised not to do so, state radio said.
The quake occurred during an election campaign for Spain's 8,000 town mayors and most of its regional governments, with voting scheduled for May 22. The two major parties called for a suspension of campaigning on Thursday out of respect for the victims.
Spain earthquake: Rome earthquake rumour sparks mass exodus
11:41PM BST 11 May 2011
As the earthquake hit Spain, one in five residents of Rome stayed off work and children were kept out of school over earthquake fears following a 1915 prediction by seismologist Raffaele Bendandi that "the big one"would strike on May 11, 2011.
Thousands of Romans fled the city and shops were shuttered over quake fears, despite officials insisting they cannot be predicted and special programmes running on Italian state TV calling for calm. "I'm going to tell the boss I've got a medical appointment and take the day off," said barman Fabio Mengarelli. "If I have to die, I want to die with my wife and kids, and masses of people will do the same as me."
Over 20 tremors did strike Italy on Wednesday, but it was in Spain, around 800 miles to the west, that a devastating quake struck.
Bendandi is said to have predicted several earthquakes which hit Italy during the last hundred years before his death in 1979 and the panic on Wednesday was fanned by Facebook, Twitter and text messages. Bendandi believed movement of plates and therefore earthquakes were the result of the combined movements of the planets, the moon and the sun and perfectly predictable.

NEW PREDICTION: 6/26/09 -- 105 (7 x 15) years after the great San Francisco Earthquake of 1906, Los Angeles and the entire west coast of the United States is jolted by the mammoth earth shock in April 2011. Evidence above strongly suggests it must be the very same quake devastating Italy and Great Britain, also dated as April 24, 2011, and the supervolcanic eruption of Toba, also April 2011. As we will see in the next prediction a similar quake is projected for France in April 2011 at the founding of a new religion.
Earthquakes rattle Pacific Coast
April 5, 2010 -- Updated 0059 GMT (0859 HKT)
(CNN) -- A string of earthquakes and aftershocks rattled the Pacific Coast of the United States and Mexico on Sunday, including a magnitude 7.2 quake that could be felt across Baja California, Arizona, and southern California, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. There were no immediate reports of injuries and only limited reports of damages from that quake, which struck northwestern Mexico's Baja California at 3:40 p.m. PT (6:40 p.m. ET) about 110 miles (175 kilometers) east-southeast of Tijuana, Mexico.
Residents across southern California and Arizona reported serious ground shakes. "We have not felt a shake like that since about 1979," Michelle Tapia told CNN from Brawley, California. Joe Madison was shopping at a Wal-Mart in Palm Springs, California, when he felt the earthquake. "I felt the entire store move and people went running for the exits," he said. Madison said people gathered outside in the parking lot until the shaking stopped. "We felt it for about 30 seconds. It was rolling," San Diego County sheriff's Lt. Scott Ybarrondo told CNN. "Nothing fell off the walls here, but we have reports of pictures falling off walls elsewhere in the county."
The largest Mexican city near the epicenter -- about 24 miles (55 kilometers) away -- is Guadelupe Victoria, with a population of about 14,800. The quake was the largest in the Baja California area since 1992, the USGS reported.
There have been three large aftershocks so far, including one that registered a 5.5 magnitude, and other smaller temblors, USGS said. Chandeliers swung and water sloshed around in swimming pools in the Los Angeles suburbs, witnesses reported, while posters to Twitter reported feeling the quake in Phoenix, Arizona. Capt. Steve Ruda, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city fire department, said there were isolated power outages and a few people reported trapped in elevators, but no injuries or structural damage were reported.
Nine minutes after the Mexico quake, a magnitude 4.1 quake rattled windows in Santa Rosa, north of San Francisco. No damage was reported there, and Susan Potter, a USGS geophysicist, told CNN that was a separate quake from the one that struck in the Baja California desert. The USGS initially reported that the Baja California quake had a 6.9 magnitude. The USGS upgraded the quake about an hour later.
COMMENTS (4/5/10): This is being widely reported as an earthquake centered in Baja Mexico, but strongly felt in Los Angeles and San Diego. However, 9 minutes later another quake measuring 4.1 magnitude was felt north in San Francisco and Santa Rosa. Thus, this becomes the first RED ALERT for Los Angeles of a major quake hitting that region, and possibly all of California, around April 2011, if not earlier. This is the worst quake to strike southern California since the 1992 Landers Earthquake and Cape Mendocino Earthquake eighteen years ago. It was more powerful than the magnitude 6.7 Northridge quake in 1994, that left 57 dead, injured 9,000 and caused about $40 billion in property damage. It was also more powerful than the 6.9 Loma Prieta Earthquake in 1989, which caused 63 deaths, 3,757 injuries, and over $6 billion in damage. This temblor was not without casualties of its own: at least two are dead and 100 injured in Mexicali, Mexico.
This is the first significant RED ALERT for Los Angeles.
A few hours ago ABC Television news reported that experts are warning residents on either side of the Mexico-California border, including cities spared yesterday such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Santa Rosa, and San Francisco, that another very powerful earthquake is very possible during the next few days.

Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.66 ~
the founding of a new sect, the bones of a great Roman will be
found, a sepulchre
in marble will appear covered, the earth trembles in April, evil burial.
NEW PREDICTION: 6/30/09 -- The tomb of an important Roman is uncovered in April 2011 at the same time as the founding of a new religious sect ... one which shall exert an important influence on the life and presidency of Barack Obama. A very powerful earthquake will also occur in France during that same month. Note that the quatrain number, 6.66, is also the number of the beast of Revelation.
Continue or return to previous position.
OLD PREDICTION: 7/22/09, UPDATED 7/13/10 -- Madonna is now 51. Isadora Duncan died at age 50. Isadora, like Madonna, was a bisexual, which was not uncommon in early Hollywood circles ... nor is it, as we well know, in the latter.
Isadora Duncan bore two children, both out of wedlock: Deirdre and Patrick. On April 19, 1913, the children were in the car with their nurse, returning home after lunch in the city with Isadora and boyfriend Paris Singer. The driver stalled the car while attempting to avoid a collision. He got out to hand-crank the engine, but he had forgotten to set the emergency brake, so once he got the car to start, it went across the Boulevard Bourdon and rolled down the embankment into the River Seine below. The children and the nanny drowned.
Duncan's children died on April 19, 1913. Note this is next to appear on April 19, 2011. This is the month great earthquakes strike Italy, France, the UK, and the US West Coast. This is also the month a new religion is founded that the beast will promote (Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.66). The water shall rise, he warns, and an agreement shall be struck from the skies. Will Lourdes and Rocco be in danger at that time?
Madonna must be very protective of her two children; one or both could die by some kind of freak accident.
A former mind-control slave named Arizona Wilder has been raising the spectre of Madonna being offered up as a human sacrifice by daughter Lourdes when Madonna is 52 and Lourdes is 13. I will counter by saying that if it comes to sacrifice, it may well be Lourdes who is sacrificed with Rocco thrown in (if there is a sacrifice involved in their deaths). It will be made to look like they died in a car accident, possibly involving drowning or burning up.
There is something BIG Madonna has yet to do she is not doing. It is quite possible the deaths of her children will be the trigger for her action, thus I lean towards what to Madonna and to us may appear to be the accidental death of her children. She may secretly know it was sacrificial or she may not. It may be the Illuminati themselves who carry this out without her knowledge ... or she may participate ... even so, she will never get over the deaths of her children either way...
TELL ME THIS IS MERELY A COINCIDENCE ... PLEASE DO TRY ... DON'T ANY OF YOU KNOW BY NOW THAT THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES??????
|TOP FASHION EXEC MADONNA BADGER LOSES THREE KIDS AND HER PARENTS IN MYSTERY FIRE|
Posted on Dec 26, 2011 @ 02:30PM
Madonna Badger, a prominent New York City advertising executive, lost her three children and her parents when her waterfront mansion went up in flames Christmas morning.
Badger, who created the iconic Mark Wahlberg underwear ads for Calvin Klein, and her friend, Michael Borcina, both escaped the blaze. Badger bought the Stamford, Conn. waterfront estate just last year for $1.7 million. Borcina's construction company was renovating the home.
|Stamford Police Sgt. Paul Guzda said
Badger's three daughters, seven-year-old twins and a
10-year-old, all died in the fire. He confirmed that
Badger's parents, who were visiting for the holiday, also
Stamford police officers notified Badger's estranged husband, Matthew Badger, of the tragedy and drove him to the scene from his apartment in Manhattan. The two split three years ago, and are in the process of getting divorced.
Neighbor and eye witness Charles Mangano told The Stamford Advocate he heard a man screaming for help as flames consumed the house shortly before dawn.
|"They were both obviously in a state of shock," Mangano said. "He was in his boxers and a T-shirt, with no shoes. They were leading him up to an EMS truck. The woman said -- she was mumbling -- and she said, `my whole life is in there'."|
|Fire chief Antonio Conte said Monday morning it does not appear that the renovations were the cause of the fire. "With the condition of the building it will remain under investigation for a number of days until the fire marshal can get in," Conte said. "I would say it's a number of days before we actually find out how this occurred and what happened."|
|MADONNA BADGER ATTEMPTS SUICIDE AFTER TRAGIC FIRE KILLED HER DAUGHTERS|
|BY Anna Moeslein | HollywoodLife.com
10.39 AM EST 01.26.2012
Madonna lost her three young daughters and parents in a horrific Christmas Day fire, and now the distraught mom has tried to take her own life and was hospitalized last week.
Heartbroken Madonna Badger suffered every mothers worst nightmare when her three girls Lily, 9, and twins Grace and Sarah, 7 perished in a deadly blaze. Overcome by the extreme emotional pain, she tried to injure herself and was hospitalized, according to NY Daily News.
|She is okay
She is out (of the
hospital) and somewhere safe, a relative said.
Its just terrible nobody could really
hold up well under the circumstances.
The relative said she wasnt surprised at the suicide attempt. She seemed to be coping better at the funeral, better than I ever could, she revealed. But once all of that is gone and youre left to face whats happened, its terrible.
Family and friends who attended the funeral remarked how brave the grief-stricken mother was during her 20-minute eulogy.
|This is going to be really
hard, she admitted. Lily, Gracie and Sarah
are not here with us today, and they wont be here
but my little girls are not gone from us
entirely. Madonna said her girls were what gave her
strength to stand before the sobbing crowd. I want
you to remember my girls out loud, to fight for them
never to be forgotten, she explained. This is
why I can stand before you today.
But the funeral is over, and Madonna is forced to face the aftermath of the devastating fire. Now her boyfriend, contractor Michael Borcina, is facing possible criminal charges for his role overseeing the renovation of the $1.7 million home that burned down, according to The Daily Mail. Did the stress of talking to investigators push Madonna over the edge?
Officials are determining if there were working fire alarms in the home. Madonna was interviewed last week the same week she was hospitalized.
Hopefully Madonna can find strength in her family and friends. Relatives said shes now in a safe place surrounded by family and longtime friends following her hospital stay.
So, so sad! Our hearts go out to Madonna and her family, and our thoughts are with her during this emotional time.
|MOM WHO LOST KIDS, PARENTS IN CHRISTMAS FIRE ATTEMPTED SUICIDE: REPORT|
Jan. 26, 2012
Madonna Badger, the New York woman who lost her three daughters and parents in a tragic Connecticut Christmas fire, attempted suicide last week.
Badger, 47, was reportedly hospitalized after hurting herself in an attempt to kill herself, the New York Daily News reported.
"She is okay...She is out [of the hospital] and somewhere safe," a relative told the paper. "It's just terrible--nobody could really hold up well under the circumstances."
close to Badger would not confirm the report, saying that
the matter was very personal and difficult to discuss
due to the circumstances, but
also declined to deny the report.
The Stamford, Conn., fire in the early hours of Dec. 25 claimed the lives of Badger's parents Lomer and Pauline Johnson, and her three daughters Lily, 10, and 7-year-old twins Grace and Sarah. Badger and her friend Michael Borcina were the only survivors.
fire was started by fireplace embers that had been
cleared out of the fireplace and put in either a mud room
attached to the house or a trash enclosure next to it,
fire officials said. The embers were reportedly removed
because the girls were afraid they would burn Santa Claus
as he came down the chimney.
Though firefighters, Badger, Borcina and the grandparents all tried to save the little girls, they were unable to make it through walls of fire that kept pushing them back.
Badger is a well-known fashion advertising executive in New York who has worked on Calvin Klein campaigns. The fire happened at her $1.7 million Victorian home in Stamford that was being renovated by her boyfriend Borcina.
"Losing one person is sad and painful, but losing multiple people can be really overwhelming. One of the hardest things in life is to lose your children and to lose your three young daughters the pain has just got to be so intense and overwhelming that it's hard to find much solace," Dr. Nadine Kaslow, Professor and Chief Psychologist at Emory the Emory University School of Medicine told ABCNews.com.
Kaslow said that even the strongest of people can sometimes turn to extreme measures when faced with extreme loss. "Even if you're somebody that has good coping resources in general, that level of tragedy and trauma taxes everybody and you may feel that the only way out is to end your life," Kaslow said. "Sometimes people may think that by killing themselves, they could join their loved ones."
She said that people who have experienced such enormous loss need to be surrounded with as many family and friends as possible. She said therapy can be extremely helpful and that medication may also help.
"She's going to need understanding and empathy for her plight and not criticism for why she tried to kill herself," Kaslow said. "This is such a recent death and I'm sure everywhere she turns there's reminders and sadness, there's no escaping for her," Kaslow said. "There are other ways to get through this pain; it just takes a long time. Slowly, over time, you re-enter life, but that's a process."
The bereaved mother was last seen in public at the Jan. 6 funeral for her three daughters at Manhattan's St. Thomas Church where more than 500 people came out to grieve the loss of the young girls.
COMMENTS (1/28/12): I had been weighing whether or not I should update my prediction with this horrible news for several weeks, and other concerns kept me from doing so anyway. I decided against doing it out of reverence for the victims of this awful tragedy, but the 26 Jan report of Madonna Badger's suicide attempt changed my mind.
I was doing a Google news search for pop star Madonna early this month when, much to my horror, on the first resullts page I found a group of reports, the top one which said something to the effect of "Madonna Badger Attends Funeral For Her Children Killed in Christmas Day Fire." Alongside was the image shown of Matthew and Madonna Badger embracing as the casket of one of their daughters arrived for the funeral services.
My immediate reaction was one of shock and a sickening sense of recognition or de ja vu. It was several moments before I saw the name "Badger" after the name "Madonna." For a few horrible seconds I thought pop star Madonna's children had died in a fire. Even so, when I realised this was a different Madonna, the sickening feeling did not go away. With thousands of people turning out for the funeral this was clearly still very much a celebrity event ... the woman is a famous fashion executive with friends in the fashion, modeling, and entertainment industries.
This is about as bad as tragedies get, although we have read reports of people who have lost their entire families in tornadoes or earthquakes ... or to war. Nevertheless, the incredible devastation of losing one's children, all three of them, and both parents, in a frightful house fire on Christmas Day that might have been preventable is hard to fathom. And it is heartrending to watch the lone survivor say goodbye to her children and parents in such a public display of grief and mourning.
When such misfortune befalls someone of stature such as Madonna Badger you also know that this will be chronicled by historians as being among the worst of personal tragedies (as opposed to massive tragedies such as what occurred to the many victims of the Titanic or the tornado-devastated city of Joplin).
And now this holiday shocker has nearly claimed yet another victim ... Madonna Badger herself, hospitalised for up to a week with an injury or injuries related to a suicide attempt and likely still on the mend staying with family and friends.
And now I am convinced this sequence of events is too close to what I predicted would happen to the other Madonna ... the pop icon.
It either means that 1) the danger to Madonna and her children Lourdes, Rocco, David, and Mercy is over or 2) Madonna Badger's too terrible loss is yet another warning.
One thing I am convinced of is that this was not "merely a coincidence" (there is no such thing). Coincidence itself serves a function, it is far more than a random similarity concurring in some manner with another. Then there are also those events that appear to be coincidental, but are not.
The prediction above concerning Madonna, Lourdes, and Rocco is a shorter modified version of one that has been on my Personalities From The Book Of Revelation page since July 22, 2009. Note that I specify on this page that Madonna's children might die from "drowning or burning up." In a similar article on my Nostradamus NOW page, I am even more definite about this: "the theme of fire and likely death indicate ritual murder ... for Madonna's children Lourdes and Rocco." On this page I conclude with "It may be the Illuminati themselves who carry this out without her knowledge ... or she may participate ... even so, she will never get over the deaths of her children either way..."
But there is more that follows, as you can read for yourselves. On The Madonna Death Curse page I continue: "with 2012 sizing up to be much like the ultimate "make or break" year for Madonna, order of events are important if the (Isadora) Duncan scenario plays out: first the children die, then Madonna (or else only Madonna). This can be changed obviously; it doesn't have to happen. But I already can see the danger signals." I add on all the articles variations of the same theme: "As I have stated elsewhere, if Madonna fails in her purpose she will be found strangled or hanged. It could actually be a suicide or else be a murder that is covered up to look like a suicide."
Which brings us once again to Madonna Badger's suicide attempt following the fiery deaths of her children.
Once again, this is not a coincidence. Something dark and terrible is at work here: either powers behind the scenes are manipulating events, and this awful tragedy has been yet another warning and dress rehearsal for the pop icon, or else the death curse Madonna cast live on stage during her Sticky & Sweet Tour in 2008 (see The Madonna Death Curse) has just claimed its latest victims.
FEARED FOR MY KIDS LIVES
Madonna feared for her childrens lives after a knife-carrying stalker smashed into her home.
25th October 2011
The mum-of-four said yesterday she had been alarmed by deranged Grzegorz Matloks obsession with her. The schizophrenic, who travelled from his native Poland carrying a map with an M scrawled over the singers home, was sectioned indefinitely yesterday after a judge branded him a serious risk.
Matlock broke into an office at Madges £10million home in March after climbing a rope to reach a balcony.

Nine months earlier he had been sent back to Poland for treatment after forcing his way into the Wiltshire estate Madonna used to share with ex-husband Guy Ritchie, 43.
The singer, 53, said in a statement to Southwark Crown Court that Matlok had left her plagued by fears for the safety of children Lourdes, 15, Rocco, 10, David, five, and Mercy, four.
|The star said: It is extremely unsettling to know that despite the extensive security I have he has been able to break into two of my residential properties.

booed at the London premiere of her slated royal movie
W.E. on Sunday. And homeless brother Anthony Ciccone, 55,

Judge Deborah Taylor told Matlok, who had earlier admitted burglary: It is the view of the doctors that you pose a risk of serious harm to Ms Ciccone and your behaviour if you were to meet her would be unpredictable.
'distressed' after stalker broke into her home
Madonna feels alarmed and distressed' and fears for her children's safety after a stalker
broke into her £10 million home, a court heard.
2:19PM BST 24 Oct 2011
In a victim impact statement read out to Southwark Crown Court, the singer told how Grezgorz Matlok had left her unsettled after breaking into her Marylebone home in March this year.
Matlok, 30, who believed he was involved in an intimate relationship with the singer and had exchanged 'special messages' with her, was arrested on March 12 after being wrestled to the ground by bodyguards at the 53-year-old pop star's property. A year before he had broken into the Wiltshire home she shared with Guy Ritchie.
The Polish national arrived at the Georgian townhouse equipped with a map of the exact location and used a rope to climb onto the balcony of a neighbouring house before breaking into Madonna's bedroom and rifling through her bedclothes.
He initially denied one count of burglary but changed his plea to guilty after being found with a can of Red Bull from the star's home.
Matlok was locked up indefinitely after doctors found he posed a 'serious risk' to the singer. He was today banned from contacting the superstar or her family or visiting any of their properties.
In the statement read out by prosecutor Philip Stott, Madonna said: "I do not know the defendant, have never had any relationship with the defendant. I have never had any contact with the defendant, either by phone or by email, or any other way. I have never given him permission to enter the premises or any of my other premises.
|"I feel alarmed and distressed by the
actions of the defendant. It's extremely unsettling to
know that despite the extensive security I have he has
been able to break in to two residential properties owned
by me. I am worried about the safety of my children, all
of which are under 18. I am also worried about the safety
of my staff and naturally I am also worried about my own
During the hearing, the court heard how Matlok initially escaped detection by hiding in the cupboard to avoid a security guard, but was later spotted by Madonna's close friend, film director Nathan Rissman, 39, who was renting the adjoining home.
Mr Stott said: "Mr Rissman got out of bed and opened the bedroom door and saw the defendant standing in the kitchen playing with the light switch. In his hand was a can of Red Bull. "The defendant said 'Is this Madonna's house? To which Mr Rissman replied 'No you've got the wrong place.'"
"The defendant then said 'I'm sorry, arrest me, arrest me, and walked towards him with his arms outstretched as if to be arrested." When police were called Matlok told them he had been told he could stay by the superstar. "He said she knew he was coming," said Mr Stott. "He said 'I found a note which said welcome and I went inside.' He said he had been to the address two or three days previously but no-one answered the door. He said he was not there to steal anything. He said he had sent messages to Madonna on the internet saying he was going to turn up."
The court was also told that nine months before breaking into Madonna's London home Matlok had also sneaked into the Wiltshire home of Madonna's ex-husband Guy Ritchie and tried on the film director's clothes.
|Mr Stott said he was found hiding
in an outbuilding by Mr Ritchie and a friend who was
staying with him - surrounded by the film director's
property. "He had helped himself to food and a
cigar," he told the court. "He had taken cash
from Mr Richie and Mr Love and a wallet. He had a pair of
Mr Richie's jeans and a jacket. Items such as shampoo and
credit cards had been moved into the outbuilding in which
he was found." Matlok was not arrested over the
incident but was later deported to Poland for mental
health treatment. But nine months later he travelled by
coach from Poland to Victoria before breaking into
Madonna's 10-bedroom home.
At the time of the break-in Madonna and her children were away in Michigan paying their respects to her grandmother Elsie Mae Fortin who died a week earlier.
Matlok's defence barrister Andrew McArthur said the defendant did not dispute the facts of the case but was not in good mental health at the time.
him, Judge Deborah Taylor said: "You broke into a
residential property belonging to Ms Ciccone. "Once
inside you drank a can of Red Bull and this forms the
basis of the burglary charge. This was a domestic
burglary where the seriousness is not in the drinking of
a can of Red Bull that didn't belong to you, but in
breaking into the property when it was occupied. On this
occasion you were suffering from the delusion that she
had invited you to the property and would be waiting for
conceded that Matlok is described by medical
professionals as "pleasant and cooperative"
when undergoing treatment, but added that he posed a risk
if he stopped taking his medication. She said: "I've
considered the medical evidence in this case and it is
clear that this delusion has persisted for some time.
There is no indication that if released from hospital
treatment you will continue to take the necessary
medication. It is the view of the doctors that you pose a
risk of serious harm to Ms Ciccone and your behaviour if
you were to meet her would be unpredictable. If you fail
to take your medication you may make a further attempt to
meet Ms Ciccone and there would be a risk of serious harm
Matlok, who has been receiving treatment since the incident, was banned from making any attempts to contact the singer or her family, or go within 100 metres of any properties controlled, owned or occupied by any member of her family. But he was spared deportation due to his "great desire" to return to Poland once he is well.
COMMENTS (10/23/11): The above event occurred in March 2011 (a month premature of the projected April 2011 vector). Although the specific vector of April 2011 has passed, the year 2011 still holds sway. Also, with 2012 sizing up to be much like the ultimate "make or break" year for Madonna, order of events are important if the Isadora Duncan scenario should play out: first the children die, then Madonna (or else only Madonna).
This can be changed obviously; it doesn't have to happen. But one can already can see the danger signals.
When I read about the reports of the incident and Matlock's arrest in March of this year, I rather suspected that Madonna might be spooked about this event and the potential danger posed not only to herself but also to her children. But it has taken her this long to admit how worried she actually has been. Technically, this has vindicated my prediction concerning Lourdes and Rocco being in danger in April 2011. The break-in and Madonna's realisation of what might have happened had she and the children been at home PROVES the danger was (and is) real. It is the kind of proof that makes this a prediction a CLOSE CALL.
Fortunately at the time of the break-in Madonna and her children were away in Michigan paying their respects to her grandmother Elsie Mae Fortin who died a week earlier. Otherwise, who knows? ... he had used a rope to climb onto the balcony, breaking into Madonna's bedroom and rifling through her bedclothes and also spending time lying on her bed. He had also visited the children's rooms.
I fear very much that Madonna, and her children, are being set up for something very awful ... and it all revolves around her role as the "Whore of Babylon." She made a fateful decision a long time ago that she would be come a goddess, in her words "to rule the world." Now she has no choice but to fulfill her destiny by appealing to her true God, Ba'al ... both to satisfy her dream and also to satisfy the dark forces that have been supporting her all of these years. These "powers that be" recognise the tremendous potential Lady Gaga offers to achieve their goals far more quickly. But first she needs to establish herself in a way only Madonna has been able to do. They would prefer still to instead have Madonna fulfill their objectives; but time is running out. Every day Gaga gets stronger, Madonna becomes weaker.
What occurred in the residence of CEO and billionaire Jonah Shacknai in July may itself be a secret warning to Madonna by the "Hollywood branch" of the Illuminati.
Rebecca Zahau, age 32, was found hanging from her bedroom balcony window completely naked, her wrists and ankles bound, her mouth gagged with a T-shirt, in boyfriend Jonah Shacknai's mansion two days after Shacknai's son died in a "freak accident." Indeed, it LOOKS as though Shacknai was forced by the Illuminati to allow the ritual sacrifice of both Rebecca Zahau and his son, Max Shacknai, age 6. Max, whose comatose death was supposedly caused by injuries he sustained accidentally by "falling down the stairs," was actually suffocated into a coma by unknown means before the purported mishap. His death was not related to the fall, in other words.
Two types of death occurred there: "a murder made to look like an accident" (Max Shacknai) and "a murder made to look like a suicide" (Rebecca Zahau). Furthermore, they sought to shame and humiliate the memory of the woman Rebecca by making it also look like some sort of bondage-related sex suicide by binding her hands and feet, gagging her, and hanging her naked. Yet, on another level, this had all the trappings of a kind of ritual human sacrifice. This is clearly a dark message to someone very famous, most likely the "Supreme one," the "blonde" of "elevated" stature, of Quatrain 1.39.
Thus the danger asserts itself: possibly first what to Madonna and to us may appear to be the accidental death of her children. She may secretly know it was sacrificial or she may not. It may be the Illuminati themselves who will carry this out without her knowledge (I believe "Illuminati" is written all over, in black paint yet, the "suicide" of Rebecca Nalepa Zahau and "accidental death" of little Max Shacknai) ... or she may be forced to participate ... even so, it is highly unlikely she will ever get over the deaths of her children either way ...
And, as history reminds us, although Isadora Duncan recovered from the shock of losing her children and resumed her career, she died a strange death in Nice, France, fourteen (2 x 7) years later in September 1927 ... strangled and nearly decapitated by her long-flowing scarf which was caught in the spokes of a tire of the automobile in which she was a passenger.

NEW PREDICTION: 9/30/10 -- On the good news front, a vaccine that will immunise people and protect them from contracting any form of cancer will have been developed over the last several years by a modern-day Jonas Salk. The results will hopefully be released in May 2011, and soon after mass innoculations will take place, eradicating this scourge from the planet for all time. As for a cure against the disease in those already infected, it is unclear if this will be of help or not. One can only hope the answer is yes.

NEW PREDICTION: 1/1/10 -- A triple train crash causes the highest fatalities in Japan's history from accidents. This should happen in Tokyo, although it could be in another city nearby, in May 2011.
|39 People in Hospital After Northern Japan Railway Accident|
28, 2011 (RIA Novosti)
Thirty-nine people have been sent to hospital after one of six passenger carriages derailed in northern Japan on Friday night, the local Hokkaido Shimbun newspaper said on Saturday.
Bound from the town of Kushiro to Sapporo, the Super Ozora express with 245 passengers onboard suddenly put the brakes on in a tunnel after the second carriage derailed. White smoke starting coming out of three carriages and a fire broke out. Passengers left the train and ran out of the tunnel.
But 39 people received inhalation burns and were rushed to hospital.
At the moment, the victims are out of danger. The fire was put out by Saturday morning. Police and the JR railway company operating the train are investigating the accident.
Japan Train Operator Comes Under Fire in Accident
Published May 28, 2011 | Associated Press
TOKYO -- The operator of a train that derailed and caught fire in northern Japan came under criticism Saturday for acting too slowly to evacuate the passengers.
train was traveling toward Sapporo on the northern island
of Hokkaido late Friday when one car derailed, forcing it
to make an emergency stop inside a tunnel. Smoke began
filling several carriages at the back of the six-car
train, said Hokkaido Railway Co., also known as JR
Passengers were initially told to move to the front three carriages. The 240 passengers eventually escaped on foot as the situation grew more serious.
One passenger whose face was covered in black soot told public broadcaster NHK that he climbed out of the train while the staff was still figuring out what to do. Another said he could barely breathe and thought he would suffocate if he waited longer for official instructions. Railway officials apologized Saturday for the delay.
"It took too much time to follow procedures," Masayuki Ichijo, head of railway operations for the company, told reporters. "Had we made a decision sooner, we could have evacuated passengers more quickly."
The company says three dozen people were treated for non life-threatening injuries. It took all night for fire fighters to extinguish the flames, and smoke was still billowing out of the tunnel Saturday morning.

Nakajima pledged to investigate the cause of the accident
and take preventative measures. "I deeply apologize
for this derailment accident, which injured so many of
our customers," he said.
Japan's extensive railway network is among the most efficient and punctual in the world.
However, 107 people were killed in April 2005 when a speeding commuter train jumped off a curve in Amagasaki in western Japan and slammed into an apartment building. That accident, blamed on a distracted driver who was trying to make up lost time, was the country's worst rail disaster since a three-train crash in November 1963 killed 161 in Tsurumi, outside Tokyo.
COMMENTS (1/7/12): MAY 2011 ... MAY 2011 ... MAY 2011 ... and no one mentioned this train accident and fire in Japan to me. I just found out about it now. Makes me wonder how many predictions I am rating as a big fat zero (0) that should be be otherwise. PREDICTION FULFILLED.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- The last 'civil war' in Lebanon I predicted would occur did indeed do so in May 2007 after a series of clashes that began in January 2007. This time around it may be much worse and could include Hezbollah and pro-Syrian groups uniting against the government. This could even be a springboard for units supporting Rifaat al-Assad that will spill over into Syria itself, overthrowing Bashar's regime. (Note: The stage may already be set with the recent collapse of the unity government). In any event, the base 7 dating is May 2011.

NEW PREDICTION: 10/28/10 -- The final collapse of the financial system may occur at this time, in May 2011, leading to a shutting down of all services and access to money. Banks close, ATMs cease to work, supermarkets are bare due to food shortages and hoarding. Then again, the cause of mass riots could be lack of government aid during a series of natural disasters (as was the case in Louisiana after Hurricane Katrina in 2005) or fallout from mass protests triggered by war with China and/or North korea and additional new conflicts in the Middle East as well. The US will likely not only crack down on all protests and dissent but will also declare martial law. Otherwise, this could be a dress rehearsal for the chaos to come to the US in May 2012.
WALL STREET' DEMONSTRATIONS
Oakland Riots: January 2012
|Tear gas used on Occupy protesters in Oakland|
2011 -- Updated 1145 GMT (1945 HKT) (CNN) -- Authorities
made a series of arrests at Occupy Wall Street protests
in California and Georgia on Tuesday with clashes in one
city that involved tear gas being used on demonstrators.
Police said they fired the tear gas on protesters in Oakland, California, after the crowd threw paint and other objects at officers.
The crowd of about 500 people defied calls to leave an area of downtown Oakland on Tuesday, according to police. Protesters had camped for weeks in several areas in the city, including near City Hall, police said. "The city remains committed to respecting free speech as well as maintaining the city's responsibility to protect public health and safety," Oakland police said in a statement.
In Atlanta, police arrested demonstrators at a downtown park overnight. The arrests came after Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said he sent ministers to the park "to see if we can find a way to resolve this amicably."
|Reed told CNN
affiliate WSB that concerns were increased when a man in
the park was seen with an assault rifle. "We could
not determine whether the weapon was loaded and could not
get additional information on the weapon," he said.
Authorities ordered people to leave the part at about midnight Tuesday, WSB said, going from tent to tent with flashlights. Arrests began taking place about 12:45 a.m.
Organizers had ordered protesters to be peaceful if police took action, and most were, WSB said. Many gathered in the center of the park, locked arms and sang "We Shall Overcome," as police led them one by one to waiting buses.
A protester at the park said he was scared. "It's very intimidating," said Malcolm McKenzie. "I believe what we're doing is right, but we're going to jail. It hurts to see America do this to people who want change."
was unclear how many people were arrested in both cities.
CNN affiliate KGO reported that at least 85 people were
arrested during an early morning raid in one part of
Oakland and there were other arrests throughout the day.
In Atlanta, WSB reported 53 were arrested.
In Oakland early Tuesday, police dismantled a tent camp set up by protesters in a city park. The overnight camping had to end because of health and safety concerns, Oakland police said in a statement. "There were a series of safety conditions, including numerous reports of fighting, assault and threatening/intimidating behavior" at the camp, police said in a statement.
Medical responders could not get to the scene to provide medical care on at least two occasions, and fire and police also could not get through. "Sanitation conditions worsened with frequent instances of public urination and defecation, as well as improper food storage," the police statement said. "The existing rodent problem in the park was exacerbated, and authorities were unable to control it because of the campers' presence. Graffiti, litter and vandalism also posed problems, police said. However, after the camp was dispersed, the protesters reconvened for demonstrations later in the day, the affiliates said, prompting the new clashes.
COMMENTS (10/3/11): The bottom line of a ravaged and poorly-handled US economy and US involvements in various foreign wars appear to be the two big causes of these nationwide protests begun in New York City under the title "Occupy Wall Street." Mishandling of natural disaster relief does not appear to be a problem or cause at this time. Nor has the financial system totally collapsed yet resulting in closed ATMs and and food shortages. Not yet. In some cases, however, the closing of banks has been a focus of protests in certain cities. Elements of class struggle can also be seen as the wealthy 1% are justifiably accused of contributing to the sad state of affairs.
The nationwide demonstrations have all the potential of becoming a popular movement although technically "riots" have not actually begun yet. Police brutality and crackdowns, on the other hand, have begun. I don't know if this will be "the Mother of all Protests" ... an actual revolution ala "Arab Spring" ... that could be so bad that martial law will result. I did not say that would necessarily happen in my above prediction; indeed I said it was more likely that this would be a "dress rehearsal" for something much worse to occur next year in May 2012 ... something that could lead to revolution or civil war, resulting in many deaths and nationwide martial law. That protest is predicted on 2012 (Part One) with nationwide martial law occurring either in August or November 2012, predicted on 2012 (Part Two). However, I did predict that the city of Chicago might be placed under martial law this autumn on 2011 (Part Three). We will wait and see on that one.
In any event, due to the almost brutal police actions on protesters, often female protesters, in NYC, and given the fact that the protests are now occurring in numerous cities nationwide, I would have to consider this a PREDICTION FULFILLED and a PREDICTION IN PROGRESS.
