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.”

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.

Guests:
Steve Quayle, Mitch Battros

Author and researcher Steve Quayle riffed on a variety of topics such as giants, weather modification, secret aircraft, biblical prophecy, genetic engineering, the Illuminati agenda, and Planet X. The machinery to affect weather has gotten smaller and cheaper over the years, and there are currently 72 ionospheric heaters, in addition climate-controlling technology like Project HAARP, he outlined. Sightings of silent triangular-shaped craft are on the rise, and a battle in outer space is imminent, said Quayle, naming "extra-dimensionals" and black-ops as some of the participants.

The "super-soldier" program, Stargate technology, and CERN are involved in efforts to re-animate ancient giants, who were some 12-18 ft. height, he declared. "We are experiencing now the full implementation, in my opinion, of the Luciferian war on humanity. We talk about the New World Order, the Illuminati, the International League, but what is the prime directive of all those entities? It’s the destruction of a five and half billion people," he cautioned.

Quayle reported his recent conversation with a "high ranking Goldman Sachs official" who’d visited one of the elite’s underground cities that was being prepared. The official warned him that a "global flu" had already been determined, and a mandatory vaccination will be required, with those who refuse to take it being sent to FEMA camps. On the subject of Planet X, Quayle suggested that we’re already seeing its effects throughout the solar system, and eventually, it will lead to a massive number of simultaneous active volcanoes on Earth.

Bird Die-Off Analysis

First hour guest, earth changes expert Mitch Battros offered analysis of the recent bird die-offs. Their deaths were likely a natural occurrence, he said, which may have been caused by a Dec. 31st geomagnetic sun storm, which sent a plasma pulse to the Earth, possibly resulting in the birds’ disorientation.

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 ?

Venez-nous rejoindre à cette table de restaurant, ça risque de vous plaire.

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.
