“We Are Strong!”


Murmuration?

What? Murmuration?

Yes, it means the synchronous movement of living beings to move in the same direction or change direction in a way that’s faster than one could communicate even when far apart.  In Portland we see the phenomenon at Chapman school each year as the Vaux’s swifts entertain with their swooping and turning and then disappear for the night down the tall chimney.

Recently James Dines has written of murmuration:

Dines headlines his just-published 2012 annual forecast issue “The Coming Worldwide Murmurations”.

He argues—as he has long done—that markets, and even social movements, are substantially driven by similar, little-understood principles of collective dynamics.

He thinks that these movements may be driven by fiat currencies and my be responsible for “Arab Springs,” possible revolution in China and even the U.S.!

Snow Fell In Sahara

A 24-hour cold spell brought snow and rain to the Sahara Desert in western Algeria.

Maybe, there’s hope for people in hell who want ice water!

Does this go in my (gasp) global warming file?

Silver Has Big Move

Two weeks ago on January 9 – Gold closed at $1607.50 down $8.60 and Silver closed at $28.76 up 11 cents. Today Gold closed at $1666.80 +$10.10 and Silver closed at $32.11 +$1.47.

In two weeks Gold has moved +3.7% and Silver has moved +11.6%! For Silver that’s 301% annualized. At that rate Silver could be be approaching $100 by year end. Stranger things have happened. (No guarantee of course!)

Did Transcanada Just Flip Obama The Bird?

TransCanada may shorten Keystone XL’s initial path, bringing oil from Montana’s Bakken Shale to refiners in the Gulf of Mexico and removing the need for federal approval, Alex Pourbaix, president of the company’s energy and oil pipelines division, said in a telephone interview today.

There’s more than one way to bring jobs to America!

Lara Logan On “60 Minutes”

Jane Goodall brings Lara Logan and “60 Minutes” cameras back to the forests of Tanzania, where she began her love affair with chimpanzees 50 years ago, to remind the public that chimps are endangered.

Gold Nanoparticles For Medical Applications

Scientists have come up with a way to make Gold nanoparticles whose medical applications may allow cancerous tumour detection. In the electronics sector this method may be suitable for nanofabrication of interconnects in next-generation integrated circuits.

In another article Gold Nanoparticles have successfully been tested by researchers at Case Western Reserve University in a new delivery system, which accelerated the effect of cancer-fighting drugs from days to a few hours.
