Published on Apr 17, 2015
Activity is picking up in the West Pacific, be on watch for a possible larger earthquake near Japan in the near term (next 3-5 days) .
Amazing nighttime video from South Japan's Sakurajima Volcano reveals FOUR large eruptions which occurred overnight April 16th going in to April 17th 2015.
The webcams which monitor this volcano are maintained by the University of Tokyo, daytime quality is much higher resolution , the webcam is not "night vision" but still captures the massive nature of these blasts.
Each blast covers the mountainside in fresh lava, one blast even sends out impressive flashes of static discharge lightning.
Two days ago (on April 14-15), another series of large eruptions occurred at this volcano, well worth the watch here:
You can watch (record) your own videos of this volcano using the webcams on http://www.volcanodiscovery.com
This new volcanic activity comes on the heels of a deep Asthenoshpere earthquake just North of Japan near Kamchatka Russia.
Studies (and tests in the field) have been done which prove Asthenosphere movement (deep below the plate) causes shallow movement upon the plate above.
When the deep movement occurs, it displaces a larger region above the epicenter, the magma chambers located between the Asthenosphere, and the crust are also displaced, which then produces earthquake + volcano activity.

DHS To Purchase 62 Million Rounds Of AR-15 Ammo
April 15th, 2015
￼Paul Joseph Watson
: The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase over 62 million rounds of ammo typically used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles, just weeks after the ATF was forced to back down on a ban on M855 bullets.
A posting on FedBizOpps.gov this week reveals that the DHS is looking to contract with a company to provide 12.6 million rounds of .223 Remington ammunition per year for a period of five years – totaling 62.5 million bullets.
The solicitation explains that the purchase is intended, “to achieve price savings over the current .223 Rem duty ammunition.” The bullets will be used by U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents nationwide for “training” purposes.

Feds Push For Total Control of Property Rights: “Government is Named as the Owner of ALL the Water”Jeremiah Johnson
April 16th, 2015SHTFplan.com
Read by 15,264 people
Editor’s Note: The following research and commentary shows just how far the federal government is willing to go. With the help of the EPA and State legislators they are aggressively chipping away at private property rights in America and as you’ll see from Jeremiah Johnson’s report below, they are starting with our most precious resource – water. That includes the creek in your backyard, the well under your house and even the rain that falls on your roof. Once they have control of the water, it will be they and they alone who decide whether or not you can shower daily, or water your crops, or how much drinking water will be allotted for your family – even if you have an aquifer sitting below your property . But that’s just the beginning. The dangerous precedent about to be set in Montana means they’ll have given themselves the pretext to seize anything they want. The aim, as evidenced by these and other recent actions by local, state and federal government, is to supplant all private ownership in America.
Water Rights on the Ropes: The Last Round for Free Montanans vs. the Federal Government
By Jeremiah Johnson
This is a “rush” article submitted at the 11th hour of the battle Montanans are fighting to keep their water rights intact. The average citizen is trying to defend against the onslaughts of the Agenda 21-funded, oligarch-driven EPA (pushing the CSKT water compact) and the Federal Government. The battle is almost over and it doesn’t look good about one minute to midnight. This battle is Montana’s “Alamo” of water rights and it is very important for all of us: a loss for Montanans and a win for the Federal Government will set a nationwide precedent.
If the Federal Government and its lackeys win, the Iron Bell of tyranny will ring, and those reverberations will be felt throughout the U.S. The feds will have established through state legislation an EPA measure as a means that can be turned around and employed nationally. Taking the communist “social justice” platform and using Native Americans as the tools in the “downtrodden and protected class” role, the feds will inculcate a foothold into private property rights. With a win, the federal government will have a new technique to leverage citizens away from their individual and family private property rights.
My previous article on this subject was posted on 3/18/15, entitled FedGov Moves to Seize Water Rights from 100,000 Montanans: All Surface Water and Wells. I recommend that you read it for the background history on the Hellgate Treaty and similar actions being taken in other states by the feds. SB 262 is the bill that will, if passed, ratify the CSKT (Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe) water compact. There was a piece penned by Montana House Majority Leader Keith Regier, MT HD-4 Representative on 4/11/15 that explained the main concern: many Montanans will lose access to private property, and that access will be given to the Tribal members (who already have access), their heirs, and their “assigns.
”Guess who these “assigns” are?
They are private companies, outdoor groups (Sierra Club, for example), and tour companies. They are the Federal Government, and the U.S. Forest Service, and Montana Fish and Game. These latter two, by the way, have supported the CSKT water compact and throughout the compact these two groups wrote language into it that exempt themselves from future legal conflicts. If this bill passes, the Unitary Management Ordinance will be created; this is a water court made up of a group of members of the tribes and others to serve as the water court of the reservation.
The aforementioned court will have one main function: to rule on issues that pertain to non-tribal members. Bottom line: it is a court that is of the tribes that will rule on Montanans by taking all Montanan’s water rights out of the hands of Montanans and placing it in the hands of the Indian Tribes. Almost 90% of all lands for agricultural use are off-reservation and the landowners have been paying property taxes for many years; however, they will now be under the jurisdiction of the tribes.
That jurisdiction (as outlined in the first article) will be regulated by the EPA and enforced by the Department of Homeland Security, with authorization of the Bureau of Indian Affairs on behalf of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.
The Federal Government is named as the owner of all the water defined in the compact. This is stipulated in writing.
As of this writing, there are procedural hurdles that are going to be voted upon and the bill is just one step away from being signed by Gov. Steve Bullock (D, MT), the same governor that just vetoed a bill that prevented Montana’s Sheriffs from being obligated to aid Federal law enforcement from any kind of gun grabs or gun bans (pertaining to semi-auto rifles, erroneously and intentionally termed “assault rifles”). A whole slew of commies are supporting and pushing for this; they’re swaged in “harmonious-sounding” names that falsely bespeak of serving the community: The Ruby Valley Conservation District, and Farmers and Ranchers for Montana, to cite a few.
There are armies of lobbyists, purchased-puppet-politicians, and advertising campaigns in the millions pushing this communist-statist agenda. Every day on the radio, their honeyed voices proclaim the “justice, economic benefits, and overall goodness” of a compact that will completely abrogate and nullify water rights and all but end private property. Every piece of land in Western Montana with a well will now have a regulator coming to tax and control it.
There will be another vote at the time this writing hits the site. I would appreciate any and all comments and useful information that you guys and gals can find out there pertaining to this and other power grabs of this nature. When does it end? Well, how it will end is not a question for some. Anyone who sets foot on private land to try and regulate water, perhaps AC/DC’s song, “Have a Drink on Me,” will be cranked up to the max. Bet you can guess what type of “instrument” will be “playing” in accompaniment to the tune! Hope you guys and gals are well, and I look forward to hearing from you. Keep us in your prayers, readers: we’ll need it.

NASA's New Horizons probe is visiting Pluto — and just sent back its first color photos

A rendering of New Horizons, shown with Pluto and three of its moons
Don't miss stories. Follow Vox!
No spacecraft has ever visited Pluto. That's going to change on July 14, when NASA's New Horizons probe will fly within 6,200 miles of the dwarf planet after a nine-year journey.
"This is pure exploration," Alan Stern, the mission's principal investigator, said during a Tuesday press conference in which the probe's first color photos of Pluto and its moon Charon were released. "We’re going to turn points of light into a planet and a system of moons before your eyes."

Next month, as New Horizons nears Pluto, it will start taking the most detailed photos we've ever seen of it. The craft will begin sending back atmospheric data on Pluto in May, and data on the dwarf planet's surface composition in June. "By the time we get there in July, we will have returned over a thousand images to the ground," Stern told me in a recent interview.
This is a big deal. Even though Pluto seems very familiar to us, we know far less about it than about any of the planets in our solar system. Two of its moons, Kerberos and Styx, have actually been discovered in the time since New Horizons left Earth in 2006.
In the 1960s and '70s, the Mariner missions showed us Mars, Venus, and Mercury, and in the 1970s and '80s the Pioneer and Voyager missions showed us Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, and Uranus. In much the same way, this summer, New Horizons will give us a close-up view of Pluto for the first time.The tiny probe's 2.9 billion-mile journey
New Horizons was launched in January 2006, and has now traveled about 2.9 billion miles from Earth, powered by an engine that harvests power from radioactively decaying plutonium pellets. In total, the mission will end up costing an estimated $700 million.
When the craft was launched, Pluto hadn't yet officially been demoted from planet to dwarf planet, and the mission was initially billed as a visit to the solar system's only unexplored planet. (In fact, Alan Stern has argued that Pluto should still be considered one.)
“the probe will take the best ever photos of pluto”
On the way there, in September 2006, the probe flew by Jupiter, taking photos of the planet (including the first close-ups of the Little Red Spot) and its moons, and using Jupiter's gravity to slingshot out toward Pluto.
Since then, the probe has spent most of its time in hibernation mode, so as to conserve energy and extend the life of its hardware.
But starting in January, New Horizons began using several different instruments — including a few cameras — to gather data on Pluto. Because of the vast distance between it and Earth, that data will take about 4.5 hours to arrive, and it actually won't be possible to send data at times, based on the probe's orientation.New Horizons will show us Pluto for the first time
One of the most exciting things to come out of the mission will be the photos New Horizons takes of Pluto. Right now, the best images we have (taken by the Hubble Space Telescope) only show the dwarf planet as a blurry blob:
Next month, New Horizons will start taking sharper ones. As Emily Lakdawalla of the Planetary Society puts it, every photo the probe takes will be the best photo ever taken of Pluto. They may show polar ice caps, mountains, and perhaps even volcanic activity.
New Horizons will also take images of Pluto and its moons using visible infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths of light (which will tell scientists more about their composition), as well as stereoscopic cameras that will produce 3D topographic maps of Pluto's surface.(NASA)
Other instruments will detect particles escaping from the dwarf planet's nitrogen-based atmosphere, while a radio antenna will send signals through it. By analyzing these signals after they pass through the atmosphere and reach radio dishes on Earth, we'll get a better idea of the specific gases present in the atmosphere. Because the craft will collect so much data — and because it takes so long to send it back — it will actually continue transmitting it until 2016.
All this will be enormously valuable to scientists because we currently know so little about Pluto — and because it could help us better understand the formation of Earth and the rest of the solar system. "Pluto seems to be at the intersection of many important scientific questions about the accretion of planets and the loss of atmospheres, like the Earth experienced early in its history," Stern told me. "We know that the Earth went through the stage of growth that Pluto stopped at. This will help us connect the dots."
“this will help us better understand the formation of earth and the solar system”
New Horizons will also collect lots of data on Charon and Pluto's other moons. Data collected by New Horizons over the past year show that Pluto and Charon actually orbit each other — so much so that some scientists now consider it a binary system. Charon appears to have a much different composition than Pluto, and it's hypothesized that it may have formed as part of a massive collision, just like the one that likely created Earth's moon.
Assuming the craft is still operational after its Pluto flyby, scientists hope to use it to study more distant objects in the Kuiper belt — a region that contains more than 100,000 rocky objects, including Pluto. Stern and other scientists are currently deciding between two potential target objects, both about 30 miles wide. If all goes to plan, they'll choose one next year, and New Horizons will arrive there in early 2019.

Nestlé Has Illegally Pumped Calif. Water Since the Last Major Drought—and Doesn't Want to Stop

Nestlé Has Illegally Pumped Calif. Water Since the Last Major Drought—and Doesn't Want to Stop
In the late 1800s, a couple of enterprising businessmen decided to make a lake in the San Bernardino Mountains east of Los Angeles. The forest was cleared, dams were built, and the creeks, streams, rainfall, and snowmelt from the surrounding mountains began to fill up Little Bear Valley, creating Lake Arrowhead.
Best known today as a vacation destination, the water in the lake remains privately owned, a legacy of the Arrowhead Reservoir Company’s original plan for the 48,000 acre-feet of water: to sell it to towns in the arid valleys below.
Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water officially takes its name from a rock formation in the San Bernardino Mountains. But news that the company, which is owned by the food giant Nestlé, has been pumping springwater out of the San Bernardino National Forest under a permit that expired in 1988 puts the brand more in line with the historic water grab of Lake Arrowhead than with any geological feature.
The Palm Springs, California–based Desert Sun reported last Wednesday that Nestlé has been pumping water out of the underground spring that feeds Strawberry Creek and transferring it by pipeline out of the national forest on an expired permit for nearly 30 years. H2O from another spring-fed source that is bottled and sold with an Arrowhead label on it has been transported across the national forest under yet another expired permit since 1994. Conservationists say the reduced water flow in the creeks, especially after a dry winter, threatens the riparian habitats and the wildlife they support.
More than 135,000 people have signed a petition calling on Nestlé to stop bottling and selling California’s increasingly scarce water. Arrowhead is not the only company tapping California’s springs—Mother Jones reports that many of the country’s bottled-water companies get their product from the drought-plagued Golden State.
The Strawberry Creek permit expired in the midst of a drought that ran from 1987 to 1992, and the state was excessively dry again in the early aughts. California’s current drought—by some measures the worst in 1,200 years—is entering its fourth year. The severity of this dry spell led Gov. Jerry Brown to call for 25 percent reductions in urban water use.
“Now that it has been brought to my attention that the Nestle permit has been expired for so long, on top of the drought...it has gone to the top of the pile in terms of a program of work for our folks to work on,” Jody Noiron, the San Bernardino National Forest supervisor, told the Sun.
Nestlé says it draws a negligible amount of water from the spring—705 million gallons annually, or enough to water two golf courses for a year, as the company said in a statement. To put that in context, scientists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory estimate that California needs 11 trillion gallons of rain to end the drought.
No, Arrowhead is not the new almond—some water-sucking scapegoat or bogeyman on which to lay blame instead of grappling with the complexities of climate change, water use and management, and conservation efforts. Nestlé CEO Peter Brabeck may have a penchant for privatizing water resources, but the pipelines running from Strawberry Creek didn’t cause the drought.
But consider that, as the Sun investigation found, no state agency has an accurate grasp on how much water California’s 108 bottling plants use. Bottling companies are required to test water but not to report how much water is being bottled. Like Little Bear Valley slowly filling up with water, a natural resource trickling into a commodity—or the Owens Valley being drained dry to keep Los Angeles showers and sprinklers running—the expired Arrowhead permit is a symptom of a relationship with the climate that expects it to give well past its ability to do so.
California can’t afford to sell its water to consumers in wetter states—just as it can’t afford to keep watering its expansive lawns or farm in ways that the market demands instead of what the rainfall dictates.
