Water leak inside Central Artery tunnel [Sep 15] ‘Gridlock ensued when water began leaking into the northbound lanes of the tunnel, at one of its deepest points, just north of South Station at about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. The tunnel carries Interstate 93 through the city. The water resulted in two lanes of the tunnel being closed to traffic underneath downtown Boston, shortly before the evening rush hour was to begin. Sibley explained that an eight-inch pocket of clay mixture in the tunnel walls was likely to blame for the leak. Water found its way into the pocket, and the high pressure at the tunnel's extreme depth -- 110 feet below the earth -- likely resulted in the leak, he said. Sibley said the leak, which occured in a portion of the wall which has been in place for 10 years, posed absolutely no structural threat to the tunnel itself.’ [Note: Boston is also in the stretch zone.]

Alpine, TX Meteorite Crashes Through Home [Aug 29] ‘On August 29, 2004 at approx 4:00 a.m. a 2 pound very weird meteorite hit our house in Alpine, Texas, my Dad and I were about 10 feet from where it went through the roof board and struck the garage door, scarred the hell out of us.’ [and from another source] And now it begins. My husband was driving between Barstow and Baker, California on Sept 16 2004 late at night. It is extremely dark and barren in that part of the world. Out of nowhere, he saw a meteor/bolide come into the atmosphere. It was so close, he thought it was going to hit the highway in front of him. He said he's never seen anything like this.

UN: Disasters on the rise [Sep 17] ‘Hurricanes, floods and other natural disasters hit a growing number of people worldwide and are on the increase due partly to global warming, the United Nations' disaster reduction agency said on Friday. More than 254 million people were affected by natural hazards last year, a near three-fold jump from 1990, according to data released by the inter-agency secretariat of the International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (UN/ISDR). The random nature of disasters renders mapping their impact more difficult as droughts in 2002 pushed the figure of people affected above 734 million. Hazards, ranging from storms, earthquakes and volcanoes to wild fires, droughts and landslides killed some 83,000 people in 2003 compared with about 53,000 deaths 13 years earlier, it noted. In addition, cyclones and freak temperatures appear to be on the rise with 337 natural disasters reported in 2003 up from 261 in 1990, the agency said.’

BofA isn't likely to face big losses [Sep 14] Bank of America Corp. is a major lender and a credit card partner with US Airways, but does not look to be a big loser in the airline's bankruptcy filing. [and from another source] The ongoing economic/financial collapse continues. The world's central banks have been in discussion, since Sept. 11, 2001, about this onrushing problem. Internally, secretly, many banks are going into bankruptcy, and the people who know about this do not want this information to come to the surface into the public. Part of this scandal has to do with one or more of the following: the housing market, derivatives and/or an immense default by someone or company or country! It is all linked to the banks. [and from another source] Lots of significant economists agree that there is a major major correction coming. Citibank is one most at risk. Soros, Buffet and Gates are investing for a crash. [and from another source] Let´s see if we can name some of the chief variables to the economy. Inflation, recession, real estate bubble burst, derivative market, stock market, bond market (the world stops buying bonds), and the list goes on and on. We’re on the knife edge and its only a matter of time. [and from another source] Lets see, the various Airlines are laying of 10,000 people. ESD is laying off 15,000 nationwide and a lot of Banks are consolidating or over their heads in Monopoly Money.

Thus, where banks default because those they have loaned money to are going into bankruptcies, and where at base this is due to collapsing economies struggling with the effect of the current Earth changes, natural disasters, there is also the element of warfare among the Puppet Masters and their Puppets. To the extent that the rebellious Puppets are the political power in a country, that country may find itself fiscally undermined and corruption within that power structure exposed. To the extent that the rebellious Puppets are corporate heads, those corporate heads will find themselves unable to get the loans they need to continue, and forced into bankruptcy court. To the extent that a Puppet Master, and there are many, senses that the enemy is another Puppet Master, the property holdings of that Master will be undermined, whether this includes a country, a corporation, or financial holdings such as bonds. Watch closely, during this war of the titans in the financial realm, and you will see the swords flash and parry. [Note: new ZetaTalk: Paper Promise.]

Radio Failure Grounds flights at West Airports [Sep 14] All flights at McCarran International Airport, Southern California and Arizona airports resumed flying after they were grounded for almost three hours Tuesday because of a radio failure at a Federal Aviation Administration control center. The cause of the radio failure, which had not been determined late Tuesday, is being investigated by the FAA. [and from another source] FAA Radio Outage Snarls Western Flights [Sep 14] An FAA spokeswoman says at the time of the outage, air traffic controllers could monitor the planes on radar but were not able to communicate with them. The cause of the outage is not yet known. [and from another source] So. Cal. Airport Problems Could Affect Here LOS VEGAS Palmdale Regional Airport in Palmdale, California lost radio transmission capabilities with high altitude planes. [and from another source] I don't know if this is anything but the FAA has their regional operations here in Auburn, WA. They have a cable that runs right under my shop. I believe it travels from the FAA center to SeaTac. AM radio broadcasts are shunted from dusk to dawn in this direction so they will not interfere with the FAA radar. I wonder if this story of FAA radio outage is due to an underground cable problem?

[Sep 8] Glowing lava-fragments have been thrown up in the air, and fallen down on the large square of Sapienza setting several cars on fire. [Sep 14] As per 19:00 it has moved about 100 meters, as the other two lavaflows toward the deserted part of Valle del Bove. [Sep 15] Both the effusive mouths located on the western wall of Valle del Bove are feeding lavaflows.

Warnings pile up: Estimates 'got too high' [Sep 15] Investors who have had to deal with a weak stock market this year now are learning those stock prices might have been based on unrealistically bullish expectations. Warnings are outstripping positive outlooks. Nearly 560 companies have warned their current-quarter earnings would be a disappointment. Warnings are picking up. [and from another source] 403,300 high tech jobs lost in past 3 years Over half of those came after recession's end in Nov. 2001 [Sep 14] The U.S. information tech sector lost 403,300 jobs between March 2001 and this past April, and the market for tech workers remains bleak, according to a new report. [and from another source] Direct Hit by Ivan Could Sink New Orleans [Sep 14] The worst-case scenario for New Orleans — a direct strike by a full-strength Hurricane Ivan — could submerge much of this historic city treetop-deep in a stew of sewage, industrial chemicals and fire ants, and the inundation could last for weeks, experts say. New Orleans would be under about 20 feet of water, higher than the roofs of many of the city's homes. Besides collecting standard household and business garbage and chemicals, the flood would flow through chemical plants in the area. Severe flooding in area bayous also forces out wildlife, including poisonous snakes and stinging fire ants, which sometimes gather in floating balls carried by the current.
