HOME BUSINESS OFFERS REFUGE FROM RECESSION

Local Entrepreneur Enjoys Flexibility and Financial Stability 

Portland, Maine. – January 11, 2011 – The latest economic indicators for May bring some hopeful tidings, but also some significant concerns. The U.S. unemployment rate is as high as it has been in 25 years, and there is continued concern about sizable job losses to come. The recession has been a source of severe stress for many throughout the country. 

According to the recent Multi-Sponsor Surveys’ 2009 Economic Impact Market Segmentation Study, 49% of employed adults expressed worry about potential job loss, while 32% admitted to “significant” financial troubles.    

But amid numerous reports of havoc and despair created by the current economic climate, Jeremy Hixon, a local small-business entrepreneur here in Portland, reports a very different experience during this recession.

“If it weren’t for the additional income my health-and-wellness business generates, I think my family would probably be in a very different place,” says Jem Hixon, who operates a Shaklee business out of his home.

“My business helps us not only continue to pay the bills on time, but it also generates additional income which we save to have on hand for unexpected situations, or use when we want to do something special, like take a trip, buy a new car, or remodel the kitchen—things that would otherwise be outside of our budget.”

Jeremy Hixon credits his home business for helping to alleviate much of his family’s stress and says his business has eased financial concerns while providing flexibility—qualities that can insulate a family from the changing tides of the economy. Most people who run a business from home work only part time, so there’s freedom to plan business activities around the busy schedule of a young family.

“When I began my business,” says Hixon, “it was on a very part-time basis.  Since I started, I’ve increased the amount of time I spend working with it. Using the Internet and communicating my business online makes my work much more efficient and flexible at the same time, making it possible for me to work on my business pretty much whenever I have downtime from my other responsibilities.  Plus, it was easy and inexpensive to get started, and there’s no need to make space in our home for any inventory since the company ships directly to my customers.” 

Home businesses have drawn considerable interest from people who may be having a difficult time finding employment and from those looking for an income opportunity that also resonates with their personal beliefs—characteristics that most jobs likely do not offer. 

“Because I recommend products that help people to be healthier, that help our environment to be cleaner, and for homes to be safer, I feel good about what I do. And because I also offer the chance for other people to do what I’m doing—to achieve independence in a way they may not have thought possible—there’s an incredible feeling of satisfaction in knowing that I can help make a real difference for people looking for extra income right now.”   

According to the 2009 Economic Impact Market Segmentation Study, 60% of adults are now interested in operating a home business in response to the economic downturn. 

“To me, there’s a great sense of security knowing that my business is backed by a company that has a proven track record and more than 50 years of experience giving people the means to thrive, even during the most difficult economic times,” says Hixon. “Shaklee has grown during each of the prior recessions since it was founded in 1956.”

Host:
Whitley Strieber

Guests:
Starfire Tor, Joseph P. Farrell

Guest host Whitley Strieber (email) was joined by psi researcher, author, and experiencer, Starfire Tor, who discussed time anomalies as well as her predictions for 2011. Anne Strieber also joined the conversation to discuss a time shift experience that was shared by the Striebers and Tor during a visit to the Magic Castle in Los Angeles.

The trio recounted their experience and explained that, during this particular event, Anne and Tor went to use the ladies’ room at the Magic Castle while Whitley waited outside. Despite the bathroom being empty when they entered it and Whitley outside watching the door, a woman somehow appeared inside the room and exited behind Anne when she left. Recalling the event, an incredulous Anne pondered that "she had not been in there, so how could she have come out of there?" Having investigated the building to make sure that there was no potential for chicanery by the resident magicians, Tor concluded that "the elements of at least two co-existing time lines were edited together." Based on her investigation and documentation of the case as well as the fact that it was experienced by three people, Tor asserted that it is "the most important one that has ever been known to happen."

Tor, who made a number of correct predictions for 2010 such as the plane crash which killed the Polish president as well as the Icelandic volcano eruption, shared some of her precognitive visions for 2011. She predicted that it will be announced that a "new science" has been discovered, which can be used to rebuff incoming objects like meteors or asteroids. According to Tor, this new technology will also be used to restore the ozone layer and cleanse the atmosphere as well. "These are all the strides you can look forward to in 2011," she declared. Additionally, she foresees the status of cetaceans, like whales and dolphins, will change "from animal to non-human person." This change in perspective will constitute an "important step" for humans which will eventually lead to "public ET contact."

Mysterious Animal Deaths

In the first hour, researcher Joseph P. Farrell shared his thoughts on the massive, worldwide wave of bird and fish deaths. He suggested that the events could be caused by either weather manipulation or the testing of electromagnetic technology such as HAARP. Given the variety of species that have been affected, Farrell ruled out biological weapons as a possible cause for the deaths. He also observed that the wave of animal deaths has had a sociological effect, where "it seems to be planting a meme, in the cultural consciousness, of dire apocalyptic things happening."

Guests:
Linda Godfrey, Open Lines

In the first half of the program, researcher and author Linda Godfrey reported on sightings of an unknown upright-walking canine known as the ‘Manwolf’ or ‘Dogman.’ Witnesses describe these creatures as 5 to 7 feet tall, extremely muscular, covered in fur, with large fangs, the head of a wolf or German Shepherd, and somehow imbued with a special sentience (perhaps as a result of walking on their hind legs). According to Godfrey, every part of the United States has its own version of the creature, but the largest concentration of sightings are around the Great Lakes. In addition, there are what appear to be migratory routes to Oklahoma and some south eastern states, she added.

Godfrey provided details from a recent case that may have involved a canine cryptid. On December 29, 2010, a Quarter Horse was found dead in the driveway of a stable near Deerfield, Wisconsin. The animal suffered a fatal neck wound that looked as though something had taken a single swipe at it and cut the jugular, carotid, and part of the trachea, Godfrey explained. A similar incident occurred only 15 miles away in Jefferson, Wisconsin, where, in 1972, a woman reported seeing a tall hairy humanoid on her property. The creature left claw marks on the side of the woman’s house seven feet above the ground, as well as entered her barn and put a 30-inch gash into a horse’s neck, she noted.

This past October a group of six people ventured to Wisconsin’s infamous Bray Road, where they came face-to-face with the roadway’s namesake beast, Godfrey continued. Four of the six reported seeing two creatures standing 6 to 7 feet tall, moving upright on their hind legs, with canine silhouettes and yellowish eyes, she said. According to the witnesses, as soon as the creatures saw they were being watched they dropped to all fours and ran off into the darkness. Godfrey also shared the case of a fisherman who confronted a walking canine creature on the banks of the Alabama River, as well as the 2006 account of a father and son who encountered a ‘Manbat.’ The flying creature had a 10-ft wingspan, emitted an ear-piercing shriek, and caused the men to become immediately ill, Godfrey revealed.

The remainder of the show was devoted to Open Lines.

Humongous sinkhole opens up in Germany

A giant sinkhole opened up in a residential area of the town of Schmalkalden, Germany, Monday, causing no injuries but forcing the evacuation of 25 people.

A huge sinkhole appeared overnight in the central German town of Schmalkalden Monday, swallowing a parked car and a garage door but causing no injuries.

Skip to next paragraph

The circular hole, which is about 98 feet across and 65 feet deep, appeared at around 3a.m. in a residential area, reports Der Spiegel, forcing the evacuation of 25 people. Experts are pointing to natural causes for the hole, but they have yet to determine the exact cause.

Sinkholes are often caused by the underground erosion of salt beds or soluble sedimentary rocks, such as limestone or dolomite. Groundwater flows through these rocks, creating subterranean caverns that can suddenly collapse.

In the past year, large sinkholes have appeared in Guatemala City, Tampa, Fla., Quebec, and Milwaukee, Wisc.

Officials from Schmalkalden, a town of 20,000 that was formerly part of East Germany say that they plan to fill the hole with gravel.

Cette vidéo capture 45 minutes de conversation informelle et pleine d’entrain avec David Wicock dans un restaurantnous nous sommes rejoints. Nous échangeons et comparons les témoignages d’Henry Deacon, pour Project Camelot, et de Daniel, la source (Montauk) de David. Et nous y trouvons des corrélations importantes.

Filmé “live”, avec minimum de montage, si ce n’est pour passer d’une caméra à l’autre, David nous offre ses premières réactions face aux informations qu‘avait récemment obtenu Project Camelot au sujet d’une colonie sur Mars, du programme spatial secret, des missions Apollo et d’autres choses.

Cette entrevue présente de nouvelles informations, que nous pensons entièrement crédibles. Sommes-nous réellement allés sur la Lune en 1969 ? Avons-nous vraiment une base sur Mars ? Pourquoi le programme spatial secret est-il si important ? Quelle relation avec Montauk ? Quelles vérités se cachent dans le film majeur d’Arthur c.Clarke, 2001 ?

Date: 10-24-10
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Jacques F. Vallee, Richard Dolan, Bryce Zabel

In the first half of the program, George Knapp was joined by legendary Ufologist Jacques Vallee for a discussion on UFO sightings from biblical-era antiquity through the year 1879. Over the course of the conversation, he also talked about remote viewing and provided his take on the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), crash retrievals and disclosure. Contrary to the skeptics who discount ‘classic’ UFO sightings as mere folklore, Vallee declared that the detail and longevity of the cases merit a more serious examination. “For them to have been recorded, the way they were recorded, they had to be felt to be very important to that civilization,” he said. Additionally, Vallee noted that most of the cases come from prominent officials like kings and bishops, since they were often the only people capable of actually documenting and preserving their sightings.

Detailing one of the cases profiled in the book, Vallee described a Chinese UFO sighting from 1277. In this case, the witness described a very bright star that appeared to have a dome above it, moved “in a zigzag, like a dead leaf,” interacted with other flying objects, and disappeared almost instantly. Noting the similarity to contemporary UFO accounts, Vallee said, “I get letters like this from readers of my books today, with almost the same words.” Having examined over 500 cases for his new book, the esteemed researcher confessed that “one of the secret pleasures of working with this material is to look at how people explained it.” To that end, he observed that even during these classic cases, “there was always some ‘wise guy’ in the crowd who had an explanation,” often ascribing a political or religious meaning to the event. “They had all these explanations, just like the Air Force today,” mused Vallee.

———————————–

In the latter half of the show, Richard Dolan and Bryce Zabel, talked about their new book After Disclosure, which examines what life will be like after the reality of UFOs is revealed. Despite what has been a fruitless, decades-long fight for answers to the UFO enigma, the authors contended that disclosure is an inevitability. “There’s going to be a time, a day, a moment, an event,” Dolan said, “something in which the ‘powers that be’ are forced to make the decision to disclose.” From there, Zabel surmised, “when they do decide they have to give it up, because events are spinning out of their own control, they’ll try to manage it, even as it goes public.” Having looked at the various possible scenarios where UFO disclosure becomes such a necessity, they determined that an incontrovertible, mass UFO sighting recorded by modern technology would be the most likely event.

Detailing how they think UFO disclosure would unfold, the authors speculated that the announcement may occur on a Friday afternoon. They theorized that this timing would be used to off-set a potentially catastrophic stock market reaction and to also allow for the general public to use the weekend to digest the stunning news. The duo traced the disclosure announcement from the first day, which they foresee as a time of confusion and potential panic, to the first week, when people would begin asking questions about why and how this news remained secret for so long. This call for accountability, they said, would result in a paradoxical relationship between society and the media, military, and government, where they would be blamed for “missing” the story but also looked to for answers and protection. Ultimately, Zabel and Dolan put forward the idea that, while the first post-disclosure year would be “a bumpy ride,” society will eventually stabilize as it becomes acclimated to the new world that has emerged from beneath the veil of secrecy.

Secrets of Consciousness / Ancient Astronauts – Shows – Coast to Coast AM.

Date: 10-07-10
Host: George Noory
Guests: Core Love, Erich vonDaniken

During the first half of the program, Core Love, an experiencer of 300 NDEs, discussed his contact with entities who have trained him in the secrets of energy, sacred geometry, and consciousness. Love’s journey began at the age of 10, when he was in a severe car accident that caused him to lose all of his previous memories and also made his brain continually produce the chemical DMT. This resulted in his brain “surging into these high energy states.” It was during these experiences, Love said, that he would encounter “beings who would actually take me on journeys and I’d see how other civilizations existed.” After a period of five years where these events were a regular occurrence, he then began receiving lengthy sessions of channelled information that extrapolated on the lessons he’d learned in the previous years.

Sharing some of the knowledge he has received from these entities, Love revealed that human mortality is directly tied to memories. He claimed that as memories are accumulated, the human body deteriorates because it must use more and more energy to maintain these recollections inside the brain. “As we keep getting older,” he explained, “that energy we used to use to run our body and to be healthy, is now being used to store data.” According to Love, the body realizes at an early age that this mortal paradox is at work and it enters a “survival state.” It then turns control over to the hypothalamus gland inside the brain rather than the pineal gland. As such, Love alleged that returning control back to the pineal gland will put a person on the path to enlightenment and, subsequently, immortality. While he admitted that his journey is still in progress, Love was confident that his physical body will last long into the future as a result of this insight.

———————————–

In the latter half of the show, renowned author Erich Von Daniken talked about his research into ancient astronauts and how it relates to 2012. “It was a provocation, absolutely,” he said, reflecting on the furor that surrounding the original publication of his book Chariots of the Gods in 1968. He recalled how the critics of the work failed to recognize the speculative nature of his research, noting “I had 238 question marks, but nobody mentioned the questions.” On why the ancient astronaut theory has continued to gain popularity after all these years, Von Daniken credited the many other researchers who have helped to bolster his work. Additionally, he observed that the theory clarifies religious traditions by putting them into a modern framework. “We are looking at old stories with new eyes and an open brain,” he declared.

Discussing his latest research into the ancient astronauts, Von Daniken addressed how the end of the Mayan calendar may fit into his theory. Based on his belief that ancient man mistook ETs for Gods, Von Daniken put forth the idea that the “returning Gods” prophesied by the Mayans are actually the ancient astronauts who created the human race. However, he was reticent to specify December 23, 2012 as the precise time for the return of these entities, because of the difficulty in synchronizing the Mayan calendar with our contemporary time keeping. “One thing is definitely correct,” he asserted, “they will return, these extraterrestrials, but I will never fix on a date.” Von Daniken also talked about mysterious discoveries found beneath the pyramids of Egypt, the ET connection to Stonehenge, and his investigation of the ancient Bolivian site Pumapunku.

UFO Forces Closure of Chinese Airport

Submitted by LiveScience Staff

posted: 05 October 2010 12:20 pm ET

They’re baaaaaack! A Chinese airport reportedly had to divert passenger jets to prevent them from colliding with a UFO earlier this month.

The airport in Baotou, Inner Mongolia kept three flights from Shangai and Beijing circling overhead and shut down for an hour on Sept. 11 until the mysterious bright lights had vanished.

This marks the eighth reported UFO sighting in China since June, according to The Daily Telegraph. But officials admitted military tests accounting for at least several of the cases.

China has not been alone in experiencing mysterious, sometimes unexplained UFO phenomena. A press event took place late last month where former U.S. military airmen claimed that UFOs had somehow disabled nuclear missiles at U.S. and British silos.

As with any good sighting, there’s some video footage available where you can see … not much of anything at all. Still, that doesn’t mean nothing was there – air traffic controllers spotted the UFO on their radar screens, according to ANI.
