Bundles of Cell Phones?

...TSA screeners took a closer look at his checked baggage. It was then that they discovered suspicious items in his bag, a cell phone taped to a Pepto-Bismol bottle, multiple cell phones and watches taped together, and a knife and box cutter, according to another U.S. official who had been briefed on the investigation.
None of the checked items violated U.S. security rules, so TSA allowed al Soofi to fly.
Kip Hawley, the former Transportation Security administrator, said it is not unusual to find items like watches and cell phones bound together on flights to countries like Yemen. He said this would always catch the screener's eye. In 2007, TSA alerted screeners that suspicious items found at U.S. airports may indicate that terrorists were conducting dry runs. Screeners are deliberately on the lookout for such items....

WHY?  Why is it not illegal to bundle cell phones and carry them on flights to countries KNOWN to have problems with terrorist activities?  This is ridiculous.

UNISYS Water Vapor GOES East Satellite (click title for 12 hour loop)

This satellite clearly shows a large vortex over the North Atlantic and the current storms off the African coast are connected to that vortex.  The vortex moves by Coriolis, so as much as it moves daily may change the trajectory 'just that much' of the storms.

The vortexes are ionic and have influence on the storms connected to them.  It is a 'single' dynamic.  If the vortex migrates south that effects the direction of the storms and their path.  If it migrates north or east that will effect it as well.

A few years ago there was a hurricane or two that continually slammed the North Carolina coast.  It may have only been a TS.  The point is the damage was considerable because the storm moved so slowly.  That is the same 'wave dynamic' that exists with these series of storms.  Instead of one slow moving storm there is a series of storms moving along the same path.  This time there is more possibility of damage because these are not 'low velocity' storms and the continuous 'wave' of water will be stronger and more severe.  The USA East Coast is not immune to this dynamic.

The North Carolina storm may have been Ophelia.  It was a Cat One and was the same year as Katrina.

Flooding from Hurricane Ophelia.

If the series of storm delivers the wave dynamics I expect there will be a lot more flooding accompanied by wind damage as well.  The after math once the entire 'system' passes won't be this pretty.

Is everyone paying attention to the Gufl as well as Earl and his sister?

This is not minor turbulence.  There is plenty of moisture there as well from the Amazon Forests in South America with the same influence of the solar rays.  This turbulence has the possiblity of spawning storms on both sides of Latin America.

This is NewsCorp. Mixed with a reality 'Vote them off the island' attitude and you've got it.

It is a global organization that cannot be called news because a majority of its content is self generated.

While everyone in the nation was reading "The Audacity of Hope" the Bozos that belong to NewsCorp were reading a novel from 1957
named "Atlas Shrugged."

I didn't read it and I won't read, but, for all those circus performers there is movie coming out next year with the same title.

The point is they don't live 'WITH' reality, they demand to shape reality.  That is NOT a news corporation, that is a political organziation with a global reach.  Their goal is to be the only news SOURCE in the world.  They want to put everyone else out of business and if the news organizations that exist continue to compete with these idiots they might succeed.

The point is what does one do if one really wants to know what is going on in the world?

You build your own infrastructure and that is what most of not all the intelligent world is doing.  Heck, there are people that don't even own televisions anymore and get all their information from a web that 'live streams' most everything.

NewsCorp is OLD world, very, very Old World and for the SHEEP that follow along with it because of a 'feel good' felling it is completely laughable. 

Murdoch cracks the whip and the world is suppose to respond.  THAT's ethical?  Right.  If Cronkite were the 'ethic standard' for today's news media, Murdoch woiuld have been out of business a long time ago.
