2019 Aug.6: Linux is the Future of Computing:
With Windows continuing to deteriorate, Apple and Linux are trying to pick up the slack, and while Windows is still way ahead, the other operating
systems are making great strides. Linux in particular, over the last few years has doubled in popularity as a haven for dissatisfied Windows users.
First of all, unlike Mac, its a free open source operating system relying on its users to keep it going. It takes a little more tech savvy to work it but unlike
Windows 10, it offers much greater freedom and control. There are many distros to choose from in Linux, but the most popular are Debian, Fedora, Arch, Ubuntu,
and Mint. Linux Mint in particular seems to be the current favourite, the latest long-term edition being Linux Mint 19 "Tara" or "Tina"(Cinnamon 64-bit) which will
last until april 2023. After downloading the 1.8 or 1.9 GB install from the Linux website you then burn it on a CD or USB stick and try it from there before installing
it onto your hard drive. When you're ready, you have the choice of dual boot install(alongside your regular system) or full install(erasing and replacing your main
system). The dual boot requires a separate partition on your hard drive with 100 GB space as a good measure. If this is too difficult for you to do you can have
a tecchie do it for you or you can get a computer with Linux preloaded or as its main system. The "mint box" is both popular and afforfdable. USB sticks with Linux
already burned on them are also available. If you are coming from Windows it will take you a few months to get used to Linux but the effort will be worth it. With
less than five months before Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7, now is the time to make the switch to Linux, which I believe will be the computer operating
system of the future.
2019 Aug.3: Extreme Heat Burning Up Vegetation:
July 2019 was a record hot month for most of the northern hemisphere. Europe was particularly hit hard with temperatures reaching 40 degrees celsius.
Here in Canada, it has been consistently hot with very little rain, and the vegetation is suffering as a result. Gardens are suffering and grass is
drying up. Fires are also on the increase decimating our forests and leaving more animals and insects scavenging for food. It appears to be an attempt
by the powers that be to burn up or destroy all of our fauna. No vegetation equals no food! Is this what our destroyers want -to be at their mercy for
food? Winters aren't any better either; they seem to be getting increasingly cold and hostile. Spring and fall are dissapearing here; we seem to go almost
directly from winter into summer and vice versa. This weather imbalance is becoming extremely disturbing and threatening to our normal way of life. It
appears we may well be into the biblical tribulation period.
2019 Jul.3: Trump May Not Be Enough To Save Us:
Donald Trump has done a lot of good for America and I would not trade him for any of the Democrats, but he is still human, and no human, appointed
or not, can actually rescue America from the deep hole that it's currently in. Supporters argue that Trump is divinely guided by God to save America.
Perhaps. Even if so, Trump will only be an instrument. The real power belongs to Providence and what it deems worthy as punishment or reward for what was
once the greatest nation on the planet but which is now on the skids. The demise of USA began soon after the Korean War with the death of President John
F.Kennedy and the ensuing Vietnam debacle. Ever since, greed for power and resources have overcome America and morals continue to plummet, and while Trump
has stemmed somewhat the tide of destruction of the last few administrations, the atrocities and injustices continue. It appears there is a greater dark
power that has gripped the nation and the world in general, and that we may have to endure a night of the soul before we see the light again. Although we
depend on our leaders to set the right example, there are very few who are doing this, so we must take the initiative individually. Enough of us, through
prayer and fasting and good works can turn the tide of negativity around and diffuse or negate the great calamities that are lining up to befall us. If
we don't, USA, UK, and the Commonwealth, together as modern Israel(the Jews are only one tribe of the true Israel), will fall and be conquered by foreigners,
and its peoples dragged off into slavery as happened to ancient Israel and Judah under Assyria and Babylon. Trump deserves both our support and our prayers,
but each of us must do our part as well.
2019 Jun.14: Air Travel Can Damage Your Health:
Many of us have been on a plane at least once and have generally enjoyed the experience. Yes, air flight is a technical miracle of modern society,
allowing us to bridge vast distances in short periods of time, but like all technical or scientific breakthroughs, it comes with a high price tag, namely
your health. Because it's a multi-billion dollar industry, few will speak out on the hidden dangers or pitfalls of air travel, but the truth must
be told. Your body has a natural connection to the earth and its environment and this grounding is disrupted by air travel causing major disorientation.
It shatters your body's ability to slowly adjust or adapt to changing environments such as is done through walking or local travel, and therefore compromises
your immune system. The high pitched noise of the engines as well depressurization during flight can play havoc with your hearing and its organs and many
regular flyers have reported substantial hearing loss over time. There is also the danger of jet lag and sleep deprivation from extended flight, and
long time workers in the industry tend to develop breathing ailments from the jet fumes and tinnitis from the constant noise. There are also the compact seating
arrangement and long hours of immobility which can cause circulation problems in the legs and feet. Then there is the stale air and the generally unhealthy food.
It is wise to drink lots of water to insulate you against many of the negative effects of air travel and to avoid alcohol during your flight which can further
weaken or disorient you. The body scans before or after the flight, any mandated vaccines, as well as the exposure to at least ten times more radiation in
the upper regions of our atmosphere can also endanger your health. In short, the less often you fly, and the shorter the flights -the better.
2019 Jun.10: Banking Institutions Going The Wrong Way:
We all know the impetus is to move towards a cashless and even a cardless society where bio chips and scanning technology will be the norm, but is this
a good thing? While it's simple and effective, doing away with passwords and lost or stolen cards, there's a negative side to it as well, mostly having
to do with our health and privacy. Micro chips imbedded into your hand or elsewhere can leak or produce negative frequencies which can have a negative
health impact. They can also be used to monitor you 24/7 so that you no longer have any real privacy. Same for the biometric(finger or eye scanning technologies).
Perhaps the most important intitutions to be affected by these technologies are the banks. Banks are increasingly moving away from personalized counter services
to automated or online options and may soon implement RFID chips on your person. This will make services faster and simpler and cut on staff, card, and paper
expenses, but as explained earlier, it will also diminish the human element and have health consequences. Most young or even middle-aged people are adaptive
and don't really have a problem with this, but the older folks or generations do. Many are actually enraged that their banks are no longer offering one-to-one
personalized counter services and are swithching to banks that still do. While technology will always be with us, I find this trend towards fully automated or
computerized banking disturbing. It is leading to an inhumane robotic AI system where the top brass exercise all the power and control and we become mere numbers
or statistics. Besides being highly impersonal, tech banking is subject to hacking and mechanical breakdowns, which can cause great stress to both the client
and the institution. Personal interaction is critically important as a safeguard and needs to be maintained in all institutions. It strengtens our individuality
and gives us greater control over both our money and possessions as well as preserving both our dignity and humanity.
2019 May.29: Protect Your Eyes From Excessive Blue Light:
If you spend many hours every day looking at computerized screens you may well be suffering dry eyes, strain, headaches, or even permanent damage to
your vision, due to a certain spectrum of light(blue light) that is overabundant in our technological gadgets. The Sun has blue light as well but much less
than your digital screen and in properly combined results. The excess blue light from digital screens passes through unfiltered and can cause retinal damage.
People with floaters often complain that digital screens make their floaters worse whereas the older analog screens do not. Have we gone from bad to worse?
In any case, there are glasses available that filter out the excessive blue light and I recommend getting them. The cheaper ones are available at your local
pharmacy(they do a fair job) while the better ones can be prescribed or ordered online. They can come in different magnification powers or at zero power and
fit over your regular glasses. They are usually blue or yellow-tinted and easy to adapt to.
2019 May.27: You Are Being Destroyed From All Sides:
First it was our food and water, then our air, and now our very sunlight. The modification of our food and water goes back
centuries, but increased dramatically after World War II, and is-ever accelerating. Science and technology are always fiddling to
try to improve on nature's bounties but appear to be causing much more harm than good. This is evident in the exploding increase of illnesses
or diseases, unheard of 70 or more years ago, and which are directly linked to what we consume. Petrol or gas was always a problem for
the air and now electric waves, chemtrails, and weather modification are making it worse. Our worsening atmosphere is in turn cutting
off much of the life-giving properties of the Sun. We can survive for a while without good food or water, but bad air and light or
radiation will kill you much more quickly. It appears the controllers have all the bases covered for humanity's demise and unless we
act to counter this we may well all perish.
2019 May.22: Bing is the New Google:
While Google still holds a large chunk of the browser market share, Bing, its worthy competitor, is making great strides. Microsoft is working
hard to make Bing what Google used to be and it appears to be working. It's fast, sleek, reliable, and relevant, and more of my site pages
show up here than in Google. Duck Duck Go is still the best for privacy, but Bing is larger and has more results. I'm using Bing more
often now, but haven't abandoned Google altogether. Check it out and see for yourself!
2019 May.8: The True Gold to Silver Ratio:
As of this writing , gold is at $1285 an ounce US while silver is at about $15 an ounce US. That's an 85 to 1 ratio, when the norm
or ideal should be 12 to 1! It was 12 to 1 in Roman times(patterned after the Sun/Moon ratio of time), then in 1792 it was fixed at
15 to 1 in the US. In the mid 1970's it averaged 30 to 1, in the mid 80's it was 60 to 1, and it has continued to widen ever since.
Why is silver so undervalued when it is more useful(such as in high tech industry) than gold? The only explanation is that the price
of silver is being artifically devalued. But for what purpose? Probably so it can be bought off cheaply by the big buyers. Then, when
the financial crunch comes, the price of silver will skyrocket, but obtaining it will be nearly impossible. Do yourself a favor and
put some silver aside(and gold if you can afford it) while you still can, as a hedge against possible financial hard times ahead.
2019 May.1: Is Vulcan Affecting our Weather and Health:
The host of Planet X News in his April 28, 2019 video states that an infrared(invisible) "brown dwarf" and its retinue of satellites
which has acquired a close and highly inclined orbit around our Sun for the past few decades is emitting harmful infrared radiation
that is seriously affecting our health and climate.. He says it has a 28 day orbit(Vulcan?) with the larger part of its orbit coming
from extreme south. He also says that the governments know about it and that they're chemtrailing the skies in an effort to deflect its
harmful radiation, especially when the object is closest to the Sun, but they're not telling the public for fear of panic. It's effects
are supposed to get worse over the next ten or eleven years(solar minimum) before this new "planet" stabilizes its orbit after which it
may become visible. Flooding is one of its signature effects as is currently happening in eastern Canada as the radiation quickens the
melting of the ice and snow. It also causes eye damage and skin burns and cancer, and may be why our grasses and trees are being burned
so badly. The host(Scott) firmly states that this is NOT Niburu which he believes is a fabrication. He sounds sincere and deserves a
hearing. As a flat Earther, my only contention with this is that Scott(and his co-partner) still believe the astronomical lie that these
objects(including Sun, Moon, planets, and stars) are millions of miles out into space and very huge when they may in fact be much much
smaller and closer to home.
2019 Apr.28: Two Suns on the Horizon:
I had an unusual dream this morning: I dreamt I saw two Suns on the horizon,
each separated by about 90 degrees. Both suns were about the same size with the first sun being yellowish and the second being more
reddish in color. I tried to point it out to those around me, and while most could see the yellow sun, hardly any saw the reddish sun,
perhaps because it moved more quickly and was now under the horizon. I woke up shortly threafter. Many others seem to be having this
dream of seeing two suns and some are actually seeing it in reality. Could one of the reasons they're spraying the skies or geoengineering
it to be more cloudy more often be so we do not see this second sun? Think about it.
2019 Apr.23: Google Search Results Are Often Unreliable:
I often check to see how my site or some of its pages are doing via the Google search results but get the feeling the numbers
are often not what they should be, and they can fluctuate wildly from one day to the next or even on the same day. It's even hard
to find some of my pages which I can easily find elsewhere using different search engines. Unfortunately, not many search engines
display search results. Some of the few that do as of this writing, and are relatively stable, are Yandex, Bing, AOL, and Yippy, but
even these search engines are questionable. The truth is its very difficult for any one search engine to keep track of everything
that's out there, so don't despair if your search result numbers are low or not to your expectations. If you know your content is
true and important, you can be sure it's attracting attention, regardless of what the numbers say.
2019 Apr.21: Gas Prices Soar in Canada While The Loonie Sinks:
Gas prices took a sharp hike over the last week as the Canadian dollar continues to plummet against the US dollar. Just coming
out of an icy winter and an almost non-existent spring with record flooding and pot holes galore, Canadians must now also deal
with sharply increasing gas prices and a battered looney(dollar). It wasn't long ago when Canadians were enjoying $1.09 litre
of gas at the pump but that all changed in March, and especially mid to late April 2019 where it's now about $1.50 a litre
and in some places even higher. This doesn't make sense when compared to oil prices, and looks like another cash grab
for oil producers. The Canadian dollar continues its descent since 2013 when it was more or less on par with the US dollar,
and is now just below 75 cents US and is expected to go lower. This is making it very difficult for Canadians like myself
to travel to or purchase anything across the border. This is disgraceful and reflects poorly on the Canadian government.
2019 Apr.20: Politics is Theatre:
The more you follow politics, the more you begin to realize that it's all a big show out there. Even the media's portrayal
of everyday news events seems scripted and overly dramatic, and the onus seems to be on performance or delivery rather than
the facts themselves. Both the media and the politicians appear to be vying for position or recognition. You also get the
feeling that our leaders are in an exclusive club that and that unless you're part of it you don't really matter all that
much. Yes, politics is largely an act and most politicians are accomplished actors in the great theatre of life.
2019 Apr.16: What's With the Crazy Weather?:
Our weather has become increasingly chaotic and disturbing over the last few decades, and here in the Northern hemisphere, every winter seems
worse than the last. What's going on! Scientists and weather media will explain it away as global warming or the El Nino effect, but most people know
this is all horse manure. What's really happening is that the errant powers that be are increasingly pushing their evil agendas including atmospheric
or weather control. Technology has gotten to the point where this is possible. Unfortunately, it is in the wrong hands, and it truly is a weather war out
there, with us in the middle of it, and unless we put our foot down, all life on this planet could well be destroyed.
When a house is built, it is built for comfort and pleasure. It's the same with our plane our planet. It was created for our comfort and pleasure, and it
was so in the beginning, until the evil ones disrupted everything. These spirits of darkness are not only working through our leaders and institutions,
but through our foul weather as well. I laugh when the weather people try to explain bad weather scientifically, when the truth is that our weather is a
direct barometer of the mental or moral state of the occupants of this world, whether they are evil spirits or misguided humans. Wake up people,
and change your evil ways and take back control, or we will continue to see our weather get worse.
2019 Mar.22: Windows 7 Support Ends on Jan.14, 2020:
Well, it's that time again. Windows 7 support ends Jan.14, 2020 and users have less than a year to decide whether to go to Windows 10,
or try Apple or Linux. Another perfectly good Windows operating system(like XP before it) is going to be trashed for a less stable, albeit
improving Windows 10.
Roughly 50 % of the Windows world is now on Windows 10 or 8 with the other half on windows 7 or earlier. Companies and
organizations can still pay a fee to keep running on Windows 7 in 2020, but every year after, the fee will increase sharply. The rest of us
need to move on.
You can still use Windows 7 in 2020 or later, but you will no longer receive security updates leaving your system vulnerable to hackers.
My guess is most of us will switch over to Big Brother Windows 10, simply because its cheaper, but for those who can afford it, Apple seems
the way to go. Linux is almost free, and Windows compatible, but requires technical savy, so most won't go there.
