Marshall has written a thoroughly documented, bullet-proof article IMHO. 

The link to the Oregonian news story has TPTB showing its Freudian slip all over the place:

Don't expect to be able to use a cell phone in an emergency.

...the so-called impact period.

...a distant tsunami

"Think of the eclipse event as a controlled dress rehearsal...

I agree with Socrates, that would facilitate further timely discussions, but also don't know how to move it. :)

Wisconsin Company To Implant Microchips In Employees
Published: July 22, 2017

"It's the next thing that's inevitably going to happen, and we want to be a part of it," Three Square Market Chief Executive Officer Todd Westby said.

The company designs software for break room markets that are commonly found in office complexes.

Just as people are able to purchase items at the market using phones, Westby wants to do the sam thing using a microchip implanted inside a person's hand.

"We'll come up, scan the item," he explained, while showing how the process will work at an actual break room market kiosk. "We'll hit pay with a credit card, and it's asking to swipe my proximity payment now. I'll hold my hand up, just like my cell phone, and it'll pay for my product. (Can anyone just say 666)"

More than 50 Three Square Market employees are having the devices implanted starting next week. Each chip is about the size of a single grain of rice.

Lots of interesting stuff posted on silica, and then on D.E.

 Another source of silica is horsetail (Equisetum hymenale), although I don't know if the amount contained therein is as easily assimilable as that in DE.  One thing about horsetail is that it must be boiled about 20-30 minutes (a decoction) before ingesting as the boiling will deactivate a thiaminase enzyme which would otherwise destroy thiamine.

A number of people I've known who had Multiple Myeloma were Viet Nam vets with exposure to Agent Orange.  Thank you, Monsanto.

ilinda - thanks for bringing out that connection... Agent Orange and multiple myeloma...
How old were the Vets when they were diagnosed with multiple myeloma?
I don't know how old when diagnosed, as most of them I did not know when they first return from Nam.  The most recent was about 10 years ago, and he had it for several years.  My recollection says that it seems to be slower than some.

Oh, I remembered something very important.  Our friend, Leon Ebert, the one who died about 10 years ago, told us that when he went to VA hospital for his chemo treatments, it would be in a big "ward" with many beds, and he said every one of them were Multiple Myeloma patients, and they were all Nam vets exposed to Agent Orange, and all getting the same treatments.  Leon was also Nam vet.

Thanks for the info...
sad... I hope there was a huge class action lawsuit for the surviving spouses and family.
I seem to remember hearing that.

I think this topic should go PREPAREDNESS - Survival Manuals & Books.
I'd move these posts there but i don't know how (or if i can).

Not too terribly surprising, if one considers that Aspartame=amino acid aspartate / a.k.a. aspartic acid + L-phenylalanine.  Aspartic acid is a pro-inflammatory excitotoxin, as you probably know, similarly to glutamic acid and glutamate (which is glutamic acid minus a single proton). 

We already possess more than enough naturally occurring aspartate in the human body, and then to add to it via diet drinks would essentially throw gasoline on the inflammatory fires. :)

Came across findings the other day in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, Schernhammer,C.S., et al, 2012. 
"Showed that ingesting aspartame-containing sodas increased the risk of certain cancers, including lymphoma and multiple myeloma in men."

Also it was in PUBMED:

I followed Socrates' link and found this:

Socrates, Re Periodic Tales: One of our home-schooling projects that my sons most enjoyed was taking a single element from the Periodic Table each day and deeply researching its structure and functions.  I think that high school and college chemistry in my own school days missed the boat by quickly confusing us with things like molarity vs. molality, rather than leading us into a basic exploration of the Periodic Table.  Too much rush to make useless entertaining scented mixtures and not enough foundation.

Examples of what my children and I discovered at home:
*There are elements in existence on earth that almost nothing is known about, such as Francium, which can only survive for 22 minutes.  No weighable quantity has ever been isolated.
*The heavier elements are progressively more reactive
*The importance of sodium as a biological battery has been known since pre-historic times
*Rubidium paradoxically is slightly radioactive yet anti-cancer, and assists with assimilating food.
*Rubidium is one of the most electro-positive elements, as well as one of the most alkaline.
*The reason radioactive Cesium is so dangerous is that it mimics potassium and is readily taken in by cells.  Yet some experimenters also regard unenriched Cesium as being anti-cancer.
*Beryllium is essential to the manufacture of planes and rockets, due to its 2,000 degree melting point.
*Beryllium is found in fresh stream water, rather than in ocean water.
*Besides Iron, cobalt and nickel also produce their own magnetic fields
*Vanadium, found in black pepper, makes people calm
*Absolutely pure Vanadium is almost non-existent in nature, due to reacting strongly to the presence of Oxygen
*Magnesium can replace the many biological functions of manganese
*Iron is only non-toxic when bound to protein
*Cobalt comes from a German word meaning "evil spirit."
*Silver is so anti-microbial that our ancestors would drop coins in milk to keep it fresh
*Japanese physicians use the negative charge of gold to counteract illness caused by toxic positive ions
*Scanadium is common on the sun and stars, but rare here.
*Titanium does not react to acids and strong alkalis.
*Yttrium is necessary for colored television, yet catches fire when it touches air.
*Zirconium is not radioactive but is necessary to produce nuclear power plants.
*Many elements only exist in nature bound to another element.
*Technetium only exists naturally in outer space, but can be synthesized here and used for medical tests
*Johnson-Matthey has been experimenting with anti-cancer properties of the entire platinum group of metals.  One of these, Ruthenium, is explosive in the presence of potassium salts.
*Certain metals in the platinum group gain new properties when processed until they lose their metallic coloring and turn red
*Palladium can absorb 900 times its own weight in Hydrogen
*When alloyed with Gold, Palladium creates a "magical" metal called "white gold."
*Palladium is commonly used as a chemical catalyst
*Tantalum is very heavy and hard, yet can be bent into any shape and almost nothing exists that can damage it chemically.
*Elements can have very different names in other languages, such as Tungsten being called "Wolframite" in German.
*Tungsten has the highest melting point of all metals and the greatest strength
*Rhenium is necessary for making mass-spectrographs
*Osmium is the densest non-radioactive element
*Iridium is of ET origin, yet 5% of the human brain is composed of it
*Iridium is the most corrosion-resistant metal known
*High levels of Iridium in certain geological formations are evidence of a meteor strike from a previous earth age
*Moses obtained Iridium directly from God on Mount El Shaddai, and in turn passed it to the Old Testament kings.
*Iridium levitates upon being processed in a lab.
*Archeological discoveries in the Middle East and Turkey prove that ancient man knew about the Platinum Group of metals, both how to extract them and how to use them, yet modern man has only known about them since 1735.
*Rutherfordium begins the radioactive metals row of the Periodic Table.  It is manmade, and there is no known use for it.  Its structure and color are both unknown.  Same for Dubnium, Seaborgium, Bohrium, Hassium, and Meitnerium.
*Aluminum only comes from the mineral bauxite.
*Gallium is an important semiconductor because it conducts electricity but not hot juice, and is a liquid at room temperature (like Cesium, Rubidium and Mercury). It will melt in a person's hand.
*Indium differs from the other elements because it has a tetrahedral or pyramid shape.  It makes a screaming sound when bent.
*Thallium is necessary to detect infrared radiation
*Lead comes from a mineral called galena.
*Bismuth 209 has a half-life of one billion times the age of the universe
*Magnesium is vital to all plant life, because it's part of chlorophyll.
*The longest-lived isotope of Radium has a half-life of 1,601 years, while the next-longest-lived Radium isotope only survives 5.75 years.
*Lithium is the lightest-weight metal on earth, followed by Potassium.
*Boron is never found alone in nature, but always joined with other elements.  Its melting point is more than 2000 degrees, so it's used to make heat-resistant glass.
*Boron neutralizes radiation.
*Turkey supplies most of the world's Boron.
*Boron is as important to bone and teeth strength as calcium, in lesser quantities.
*Silicon is rarely found in pure form, and is only toxic if inhaled.
*Germanium is one of the few substances that solidifies in its molten state.
*Arsenic comes from a mineral called "mispickel."
*Antimony gets its name from Greek words meaning "against being alone."  It comes from the minerals stibnite and valentinite.
*One of Tellurium's isotopes has a half-life that is 160 trillion times the age of the universe.
*Polonium has no known use.  Marie Curie named it after her country to highlight its oppression and bring it to the world's attention.
*The Halogen family of the Periodic Table is the only family contains all 3 phases: solids, liquids and gasses. 
*Halogens are highly reactive with alkali metals and alkaline earth metals, until they join together to become stable salts.  The halogens have a strong negative charge, while the alkali and alkaline earth metals have a strongly positive charge. The word "halogen" means "salt-maker." 
*"Astatine" gets its name from the Greek word for "unstable."  There is no known use for it, and it is so rare that it is measured in atoms.
*Bromine gets its name from a Greek word that means "stinky." 
*Chlorine was so deadly a weapon in WWI because gas masks were not yet invented.
*The Noble Gasses get their family name because they do not mix with other elements.
*Argon gets its name from a Greek word meaning "inactive," because it is not attracted to other elements.
*Krypton paradoxically means "hidden" in Greek, yet stands out boldly on a mass spectrometer with its bright green and orange lines.
*Hydrogen  makes up 90% of the universe.
*Carbon is paradoxically part of one of the lightest materials, graphite, and one of the hardest materials, diamond.
*Certain plants are capable of grabbing Nitrogen from the air and placing it in the soil
*Ozone (O3) is formed when electricity or ultraviolet light pass through water.
*Phosphorus can exist in nature as either red, yellow, black or white.  Its Greek name means "carrier of light," and it exists within all living things.
*Selenium is gray as a mineral and red as a powder.  Its name comes from the Greek word for "moon."
*Of the Rare Earth Elements, the Lanthanides occur in nature, while the Actinides are man-made.  All of the Actinides can cause cancer.
*Lanthanum's name comes from a Greek word meaning "hidden."  It is used to make expensive camera lenses.
*Neodymium forms the strongest known permanent magnets, but not at low temperatures.  Hybrid cars depend upon them, as do some free-energy devices.
*Gadolinium forms magnets with the opposite property: it is only strongly magnetic below 17 degrees C.
*Samarium magnets are less strong, but more stable.
*One element can break down to become another one. :)
Haven't opened my Minerals for the Genetic Code in a while, but wonder if a lot of the above valuable info. from Peiodic Tales is also in the Minerals... book.  When I first ordered it, I was overwhelmed by the sheer amount of new information container therein.
