Could this be another foreshadowing article for us to prepare....

It certainly reads like one, doesn't it?

 My vote is "yes" for foreshadowing, especially when the article says:
"
Personally, I am not that concerned about a potential Canary Island event creating a giant tsunami.
I am much, much more concerned about what would happen if a giant meteor were to hit the Atlantic Ocean."

So who is the Micheal Snyder guy?  His books looks pretty interesting too...

I tried to post as much as I find "foreshadowing" articles.  There is a lot out there.  Specially, about meteorite coming.  Yikes!!!  Yes and that book does look interesting

Another bit of foreshadowing?  Although I did "copy & paste" this article, the four beautiful pictures did not come along for the ride, so check out the link for all of it.

NASA's chief scientist says we'll find aliens by 2025 — here's the most likely place they're hiding

.

(ESO)During a panel discussion on Tuesday, April 7 NASA chief scientist Ellen Stofan had some exciting news:

"I think we're going to have strong indications of life beyond Earth within a decade, and I think we're going to have definitive evidence within 20 to 30 years," Stofan said.
However, Stofan and the team of panelists were less sure about exactly where humankind will discover the first signs of alien life.
"I think we're one generation away in our solar system, whether it's on an icy moon or on Mars, and one generation [away] on a planet around a nearby star," said another panelist member and associate administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate John Grunsfeld.
Last month, Business Insider spoke with NASA astrobiologist Chris McKay about where he thought humankind would first find signs of alien life in our solar system. Surprisingly, the most likely place is not nearby or on any surface.
Where to begin

"Things are better below the surface," says McKay, who is a senior scientist with NASA's Planetary Systems Branch. She investigates where else life could exist in our solar system.
Unfortunately, designing and dispatching a lander that can dig deep beneath a planet's surface is incredibly difficult and expensive. The only places scientists have drilled, collected, and examined samples beneath the surface is  on the moon and Mars.
One place where we wouldn't need to dig and drill is on Saturn's tiny moon, Enceladus. It harbors a massive ocean underneath a thick layer of ice on its surface. Two different teams of scientists found compelling evidence there that indicates active volcanoes line the tiny moon's seafloor.
McKay is excited about the prospect of Enceladus for another reason though. "Enceladus is most likely to give us an answer soonest," he said. "The reason is Enceladus has a plume coming into space."
In 2005, the Cassini spacecraft flew by Enceladus and spotted plumes of water vapor and other materials gushing out of its surface. If there's life in the solar system, the first place we're likely to find it is inside of those plumes, McKay said.
What to look for

(Pixabay)Sadly, Cassini is not equipped with the right instruments to detect signs of life in these plumes. And right now, NASA has no plans to dispatch another probe to Saturn or its moons anytime soon. That's not stopping McKay and others from discussing what they'd look for there if they had the chance.

"I'd suggest that the best molecules to measure are amino acids, the building blocks of proteins," McKay said during a live webcast hosted by The Kavli Foundation in January. "Life on Earth has made specific choices in amino acids. It uses a set of just 20 amino acids to build proteins, and those amino acids are all left-handed."
Left-handed amino acids are chemically identical (meaning they have all the same atoms in the same amounts) to right-handed animo acids. The difference is that they are structured in a way so they're mirror images of one another, just like how your right and left hands are the same shape but don't line up when you put one on top of the other.
One of the outstanding mysteries in astrobiology is why RNA and DNA is only constructed from proteins built by left-handed amino acids. Regardless of why or how, this fact will come in handy during potential future studies of Enceladus.
"If Chris were to find amino acids in the plumes of Enceladus, the challenge becomes determining whether they are the products of a biological process," Steven Benner, president of the Foundation for Applied Molecular Evolution in Florida, said during the webcast. "If he were to find that they're all the same hand, that would be convincing, because that's what makes the protein evolvable."
The real question: how different will aliens be from us?

(ESO/M. Kornmesser/N. Risinger (skysurvey.org))This artist’s impression shows how Mars may have looked about four billion years ago. For McKay, the excitement of the hunt is not just about discovering whether aliens exist. It's discovering unique alien life that is completely different from life on Earth, which might be quite a bit harder since the building blocks of life are so complex.

"In my mind that's the real question. Not, 'Is there life on these other worlds?' but 'iI there a second genesis of life on these other worlds?'" McKay told Business Insider. "That's a subtlety that's not obvious until you think about it."
A second-genesis of alien life could, in theory, have a completely different biomolecular structure from life on Earth. Right now, scientists debate whether or not life on Earth originated on another celestial object, like Mars, that then hitched a ride to Earth inside of a meteorite.
That is not a stretch to imagine, researchers say, since Mars was covered with liquid water around the same time that life is believed to have begun on Earth. If we do find evidence of life on Mars and it has the same DNA as us, then it's probably our cousins, McKay told Business Insider.
If we want to find truly unique alien life, then we'll have to travel farther than next door.
"As we go from Mars to Europa to Enceladus to Titan, as the worlds get farther away from Earth the conditions get less and less like Earth," McKay said. "We're more likely to find life that's not related to us the farther out we go."

? Foreshadowing?

Will You be Underwater When Sea Levels Rise? Find Out Here

Tuesday, April 28, 2015, by Sean McCaughan


A web app created by professors and students at the FIU School of Journalism and Mass Communications, merging data from the Google Elevation Service with calculations made by scientist Peter Harlem at FIU's GIS Center, shows the potential effects of sea level rise across South Florida in incredible detail. While the data does "not account for erosion, subsidence, or future construction" we are able to see the impacts of a 0-6 foot sea level rise in South Florida when water levels are at the highest of high tides. So, if sea levels rise by six feet, what survives and what doesn't?

The answer of course is a tad complicated, and everything is also just an estimate. Much of Dade County (and even more of Broward, although the data focuses on Dade) is definitely under water, but a sizable chunk of land, including many of the most densely populated areas, remains dry. Miami turns into an archipelago to mirror Miami Beach. A small sliver of Miami Beach remains, near the ocean where the dunes, the highest natural land, and the biggest hotels are. The Fontainebleau will probably be ok, and so will the Loews. Although with no infrastructure to service them, that might be another story. At an elevation of about five and a half to six feet above current sea levels, most of Ocean Drive will be underwater by at least a few inches. West Avenue is worse off. That street will be about four feet underwater.

A massive increase in inland waterways (many following the course of the Miami River) will lead to the drowning of huge swaths of the western part of the county, which makes sense because all those suburbs were originally Everglades anyways. On the bright side, many of Miami's new skyscrapers are being built in the right areas, or near to them. Although it will have some flooding, Downtown will be ok. Elevations drop precipitously in Edgewater, so it might not. Brickell is a mixed bag. Wynwood, the Design District, much of Coral Gables, and the inland parts of Coconut Grove will all be fine. Broward is doomed.

Well that's interesting, considering there was the 8.3 in Chile soon after your post... Well, a couple days...

BTW I posted some follow up info in the Tsunami Topic... I didn't hear much about it in the media -perhaps I missed it - In yesterday's AM video, Suspicious0bservers said that least a dozen people dead and about two billion dollars in damage. He said the largest wave was "only fifteen feet" but the event at that location lasted twenty minutes... plenty time to do a lot of damage. I posted an article... Over a million people were evacuated and lots of people lost homes, cars...

My friend in Delaware told me via email, that the Pope during his visit to the States, "blessed the East Coast".
Did anyone hear of that?  If so, that seems a rather large forewhadowing action.

IOW, instead of blessing "everywhere" or an entire country, why just one coast?  Interesting, if true.

ilinda, I was recording and watching a lot of the Pope Francis' visit and in one statement a newswoman said the Pope blessed the area. He actually did ask a blessing for America.

It is my personal belief most of these modern Popes really do try to put as much positive thought and prayer into the areas they go to. They are concerned about every person they see and who they meet. 

I did feel Pope John Paul II was a very good man, with spiritual power... Dare I say, "Holy?" He surely seemed that...
Once, when I was in Santa Monica CA, I had the strangest dream of Pope John Paul II. To me it really was spiritual, although I am not Catholic. I had been thinking about Pope John Paul and then had a dream.
I saw him making a procession, like walking up Pico Blvd in Santa Monica. My parents home (where I mostly grew up) was just a couple blocks from there. He was blessing the area to get rid of cockroaches... I know it sounds ridiculous... I'm sure there was more meaning to it than that... SM is right on the Pacific coast, of course. Looking back maybe he was trying to put a blessing on the coastline... It surely needed it.

Last image: Pope Francis saying, at the end of his remarks, "God Bless America."
It was a somber moment for him and he looked like he was concerned about a lot of things of which he did not speak...

Thanks for clarifying that, Barb.  Now it makes sense, even blessing that area to rid it of cockroaches.  So blessing each area where he visits would seem logical.

So I was getting the "blessing of the East Coast" sort of out of context, and now it makes perfect sense.

That could be true, that Pope Francis blessed the entire East Coast...

(Editor's Note:  another article foreshadowing tsunami.  Click on link to see the video.  One would have nine hours to "get out" of Japan, assuming all conditions were equal during a replay event.  It is certainly food for thought for anyone on any coast to pay attention to what's happening "across the pond".)

This Simulation Shows What Would Happen If an Earthquake Caused a Mega-Tsunami     
Whoa. 

By Jake Ellison

The last megathrust earthquake that created an ocean-crossing tsunami was recorded along the 600-mile-long fault of the Cascadia Subduction Zone in the Northwest on January 26 in 1700. Hopefully the next one won't hit any time soon, but another is due every 300 to 500 years. In fact, on Friday, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center published a re-enactment of the massive waves in a model animation. Here's the explanation from the Center's YouTube page:

By comparing the tree rings of dead trees with those still living they could tell when the last of these great earthquakes struck the region. The trees all died in the winter of 1699-1700 when the coasts of northern California, Oregon, and Washington suddenly dropped 1-2 m (3-6 ft.), flooding them with seawater. That much motion over such a large area requires a very large earthquake to explain it—perhaps as large as 9.2 magnitude, comparable to the Great Alaska Earthquake of 1964. Such an earthquake would have ruptured the earth along the entire length of the 1000 km (600 mi)-long fault of the Cascadia Subduction Zone and severe shaking could have lasted for 5 minutes or longer. Its tsunami would cross the Pacific Ocean and reach Japan in about 9 hours, so the earthquake must have occurred around 9 o'clock at night in Cascadia on January 26, 1700 (05:00 January 27 UTC).
