GreenTech; Boosting Solar Energy


GreenTech; Boosting Solar Panel Energy Efficiency
"I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait till oil and coal run out before we tackle that." - Thomas Edison


As Green Technology expands, the consumption of solar energy has gained rapid momentum. Solar energy is the most abundant source of energy however its efficiency, while improving, is not quite amazing yet. But with upcoming inventions, tremendous effort is being put to increase efficiency. The biggest advantage of solar panels is that it is pollution free. The normal solar panel efficiency can easily be used for running various devices at home, while high efficiency panels are used to run industrial machines consuming high energy.
 The latest technologies are applied to increase the energy output and efficiency of the solar panels. Thin film solar cells coated with light absorbing materials have recently been put into use to increase solar panel efficiency to about 40%. Silicon wafer cells are the most widely used solar panels and have a high efficiency.
SiOnyx Solar Panel with Black Silicon Cells
 Modern technologies like magnetic solar modules, the advent of nanotechnology and nano particles can potentially boost efficiency up to 80%. The solar cells are made up of nano particles, which are capable of actually harnessing the infrared radiation from the sun in abundance, even at night! These are not only highly efficient but are also cost effective.
Harvard University spinoff company, SiOnyx, makes black silicon. They have recently commercialized a semiconductor technology with the potential to improve solar-cell efficiency and light sensors in digital cameras. 
    The Beverly, Mass based company announced their collaboration with laser manufacturer Coherent and Vulcan Capital, the investment firm started by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. The idea behind commercializing its "black silicon" technology in consumer electronics and solar-cell manufacturing comes from the increase of surface area once the silicon has been sprayed.
This semiconductor process blast silicon with a series of laser pulses in a controlled gas environment. The effect is to re-form the crystalline structure of silicon so that the surface captures more light.
CEO of SiOnyx, Stephen Saylor said, "It makes it almost a totally antireflective surface. Almost no light bounces off the stuff, so it's a very efficient way to capture more light in a layer of silicon."  
Other companies have techniques to improve the efficiency of solar cells and bring down the manufacturing costs. Silicon Valley-based Innovalight, for example, has signed deals with solar manufacturers to use its "silicon ink" technology which treats silicon material so that it produces more electricity.
Technology developed at IBM's research labs is inching closer to producing affordable commercial solar panels. Japanese manufacturer Solar Frontier said it has signed a deal to develop thin-film solar cells originally designed by IBM. With changes to the manufacturing process that incorporate its technology, solar-cell efficiency can improve by a few percentages.
One of the challenges for getting SiOnyx's black silicon technology into production is the cost of changing solar manufacturing equipment, but most companies have figured out that even a small efficiency improvement can be financially very significant.
IBM researchers last year showed they were able to improve the efficiency of solar cells made from a combination of copper, zinc, tin, sulfur and selenium,(CZTS) hitting an efficiency mark of 9.6 percent in the lab. Although they are generally less efficient than silicon, thin-film solar cells promise to be cheaper because less material is needed.
"We are interested in exploring CZTS for its evolutionary compatibility with our CIS thin film technology. The goals of the project correspond with Solar Frontier's mission to combine both economical and ecological solar energy solutions," Satoru Kuriyagawa, Solar Frontier's chief technology officer, said in a statement.
"The history of the solar market is incremental improvements," says CEO Steven Saylor. "But these small efficiency increases are dramatic given the overall scale of the energy industry."
I hope this helped you to get some idea about solar panel efficiency. If you are able to convert any percentage of the energy it takes to run your house with solar power, try to equip yourself with the best solar panels available with maximum output.

The Truth About PROP 19! Vote NO!!



“People think it’s legalization, it’s being sold as legalization—even though it’s the opposite of legalization.” - Dennis Peron, author of Prop. 215 that legalized medical marijuana in California 
 When I first read about Prop 19 I was almost proud that we, California voters, we’re making a progressive move forward that would inspire other states. When marijuana activists, growers, and consumers heard the news that the initiative would legalize cannabis in California, they thought it was a dream come true. To many, “legalization” implied that it would no longer be a crime to possess, consume or distribute marijuana. Cannabis consumers rejoiced at the idea of being able to buy from their neighbors with no legal retribution. Small-time growers envisioned being free to sell their product to anyone they choose with no legal repercussions. Marijuana activists thought it meant that people would stop getting arrested for pot, and that the drug war would finally be over. But now that the initiative is headed to ballot, many pro-legalization supporters are coming out against it. Why?
Both NORML and the MPP, the foremost cannabis law reform organizations in the country, have suggested we wait and make another attempt at legalization during the 2012 elections. Dale Gieringer, Director of California’s NORML, said, “I do think it’s going to take a few more years for us to develop a proposal that voters will be comfortable with.” Likewise, Bruce Mirken, MPP’s Director of Communications, was quoted as saying, “In our opinion, we should wait and build our forces and aim at 2012.”

Compared to the present status of cannabis in California, many marijuana activists see this initiative as a giant leap backward. Ironically, it appears that marijuana is more “legal” in California today than it would be if this initiative were to pass. But for an issue that would have such a direct and unprecedented impact on our daily lives, it’s crucial to decide your vote based on knowledge, rather than assumption.
Simply put, Prop 19, the Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Initiative does not reflect most people’s ideas of what legalization would be. The media often incorrectly reports that this initiative calls for “full legalization” of marijuana. It DOES NOT.
 In fact, it reverses many of the freedoms marijuana consumers currently enjoy, pushes growers out of the commercial market, paves the way for the corporatization of cannabis, and creates new prohibitions and felonies where there are none now. Apparently, to be pro-legalization and pro-prop 19 are two different things entirely.
Everyone should let their friends and relatives know about this little-known, little-discussed “non-active cannabis” provision in Prop. 19.
Read Prop. 19! Its real purpose is not to legalize marijuana, but to allow big business to control THC, a valuable anti-cancer drug!
If Prop. 19 passes, it will allow large-scale cultivation of genetically-modified (GM) “non-active” (meaning THC-free) cannabis.
As we’ve seen time and time with the Monsanto law suits, Pollen-drift from GM cannabis will destroy average people’s ability to grow active cannabis with a normal THC content.
THC is the active ingredient in cannabis that causes tumors to shrink and cancer cells to engage in autophagy (self-destruction).
 If THC can cure cancer or at least prevent it or keep it in remission, it means that THC is an extremely valuable drug, as well as an extremely dangerous drug, (dangerous to the pharmaceutical industry!) Because a cure for cancer, and a cancer preventative, one that people could grow for themselves in a home garden, would cut into the billion-dollar pharmaceutical industry that makes lots and lots of money from drugs to treat cancer.
And that’s where Prop. 19 comes in, and why Prop. 19 has a little sneaky section about allowing the commercial cultivation of “non-active cannabis.” Cannabis without any THC content is important because that is how, ultimately, THC will be controlled by big corporations, like Monsanto and Bayer, and not home gardeners.
So you’re asking what difference will it make if the State of California’s government allows genetically-modified, “non-active cannabis” to be grown throughout California? It will make a HUGE difference! It will ultimately mean the end of the average person’s ability to grow cannabis that is actually “active cannabis,” that’s cannabis with the valuable THC making ability still intact. And it will be practically impossible to have plants that are insusceptible to GM contamination.
That means that once genetically-modified, non-THC-creating, fields of genetically-modified cannabis is grown in California (and, if Big Pharma/Business gets its way, all over North America), the genetically-modified pollen will spread everywhere ,  thus polluting the genetics of normal cannabis. Ultimately, only cannabis plants grown inside, in state-of-the-art “clean labs” from which all such pollen can be excluded, will be capable of producing THC. (See, e.g., information about pollen-drift from genetically-modified crops: http://www.beyondpesticides.org/news/daily_news_archive/2003/2_13_03.htm)
Plans are in the works to pass Prop. 19-like legislation in many states.
Warn friends in other states to watch for similar efforts nationwide!
Monsanto wants you to vote Yes for Prop 19. They produce a plant with no THC content and obviously cannabis must be genetically modified to have no THC content. And that's exactly what non-active cannabis is!!  These genetically-modified cannabis plants that companies like Monsanto and other monster corporations have already developed strains with genes that “knock out” the plant’s ability to make THC.
For a 25-page long investigative report on how Prop. 19 is being backed by the Drug Policy Alliance, whose board of directors include heavy weights in Big Business and Big Pharma, including George Soros, a major shareholder in Monsanto, see http://community.kpfz.org/node/17. This report may also explain why NORML has been urging people to vote for Prop. 19, despite its many flaws: Soros also funds NORML!)
This is serious people! Don’t be fooled by the false promise of legalization! The truth of the matters is that Prop 19; The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Initiative is flawed and we need to realize that Prop 19 is not the only path to legalization! We have come so far, and are now so close, it is imperative that we let the next step be the right one. Legalized marijuana is within reach, yet the movement could be set back with such a problematic initiative at the helm. Instead of rushing to pass a measure that prohibits marijuana under the guise of legalization, we can let them draft an initiative that calls for true legalization and that has the full support of marijuana law reform organizations and leaders of the movement.

The Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Initiative is rife with vagueness and ambiguity! Contrary to what you would expect it actually expands the War on Drugs. Prop 19 undermines the medical marijuana movement, arrests more people for marijuana, offers no protection for small farmers and in the end gives insufficient protection for medical marijuana users who are at the center of this battle because they’re the reason why we believe this plant is so important!
If Prop 19 passes there will be a high potential for monopolization because it provides no regulations to prevent corporate takeover of the industry. It will divide our community into poor, unlicensed, mom-and-pop gardeners versus rich, licensed, corporate farmers.
One thing is clear, this initiative is vague which is problematic. Prop 19 could very easily prove to be a Pandora’s box, and open up a shit-storm of unintended consequences. Beyond its vagueness, the impact that such a failed legalization initiative could have on the movement nation-wide could be disastrous.

This is not a question of whether to legalize or not to legalize. Legalization is the goal and it is inevitable. The question is whether we want to rush in and settle for an initiative that is so poorly-worded as to be ambiguous, and so vague as to be open to vast interpretation from judges, or we wait for the wording and other inconsistencies to be corrected for 2012. If we hold out for a perfect initiative we will wait forever. But if we at least hold out for an initiative that is direct, unambiguous, well-defined and clearly written, we will have a better opportunity to inspire the world to join the legalization movement.

Ultimately, the decision is not up to any organization; it’s up to us. Everyone should read the initiative for themselves and decide what they want.


“I hope people find the hope and inspiration to broadcast this, understand (the initiative), read it, and know that it's a step backwards. And we can do better. We will do better.” - Dennis Peron

The Central Intelligence Agency Controls Drug Trade

 



The CIA has long secured the lucrative global drug market for Wall Street and for its own operational “off-the-books” purposes. “The CIA’s operational covert, black op’s, para-military, black-water, call it whatever you want, has at least 40 years of documentable paper trails tying their budgets to the sales of heroin and cocaine.
The CIA AKA “Cocaine Import Agency” has been in the drug running business since the 1950s. In Burma, Vietnam, Laos, Latin America, and Afghanistan, the CIA has remained at the forefront of the international illicit drug trade. The journalist Gary Webb and the San Jose Mercury News tied the CIA and the Contras to a large crack cocaine ring in Los Angeles. Webb paid with his life for revealing this information to the public. He tried to get in the way of the people who control a trillion dollar syndicate. And it’s a fact that more than 95 percent of the revenue generated by opium and cocaine production is siphoned off to these business syndicates, organized crime families and banking and financial institutions.

In an amazing propaganda segment, Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera talks with a soldier about U.S. support of the opium trade in Afghanistan. The soldier tells Rivera he does not like supporting Afghan opium production. The U.S., he insists, has turned a blind eye to the cultivation because it is a cultural thing. He’d rather the Afghans grow watermelons. What they fail to mention is that before the 1980 Afghanistan produced zero percent of the Worlds heroin so the “it’s a cultural thing” argument is bullshit!
The thing is that Afghanistan grows poppies because CIA paid farmers since the 1980’s to grow poppy fields rather than watermelons!  The Golden Crescent drug trade, launched by the CIA in the early 1980s, continues to be protected by US intelligence, in liaison with NATO forces and the British military. In recent reports British occupation forces have even promoted opium cultivation through paid radio advertisements! One was reported to say, “Respected people of Helmand. The soldiers do not destroy poppy fields,” The radio promo said. “They know that many people of Afghanistan have no choice but to grow poppy. They do not want to stop people from earning their livelihoods.”
 This is basically the same excuse used by the Bush and Obama Administration based on their display of a complete lack of interest in the Afghan opium trade. And especially since 9/11, the White House and Pentagon have gone out of their way to avoid taking on the Afghan drug lords from the very outset of U.S. military operations in Afghanistan since it started a decade ago and currently on into today.
It was reported by The New York Times (link below)  a few months ago that Hamid Karzi, the president of Afghanistan, was on the CIA payroll and intimately involved in the opium trade. The rest of the mainstream news and the corporate media tell us the drug trade is run by the evil Taliban. They never seem to report that before September 11, 2001, and before the U.S. invaded Afghanistan, the Taliban had imposed a ban on opium production! This resulted in opium production collapsing by more than 90 per cent. It was the U.S. supported Northern Alliance that came to the rescue and began protecting the production of raw opium!
Under the interim government of U.S. appointed Hamid Karzai, opium poppy cultivation once again began to skyrocket and opium markets were restored. According to the United Nations Drug Control Program (UNDCP), opium cultivation increased by 657 per cent in 2002 in relation to its 2001 level! The UNDCP estimated 2002 opium poppy cultivation would cover an area between 45,000 and 65,000 hectares. A hectare equals 2.4 acres! Opium cultivation in 2001 had fallen to an estimated 7,606 hectares! According to the UN, in 2007 alone Afghanistan supplied 93 percent of the world’s supply of opium.
So where does all of this money end up? We’re talking hundreds of Billions every year. Well, in many instances, drug money ends up as liquid investment capital for a wide range of organizations. Former Managing Director of Wall Street investment bank Dillon Read has long alleged that the banksters launder imponderable amounts of drug money. According to the Department of Justice, the US launders between $500 billion – $1 trillion annually. Imagine what percentage of that is narcotic dollars! It is probably safe to assume that at least a few hundred billion relates to US drug import-exports trade.

This bombshell article in the New York Times lifts the lid on how the brother of Afghan President Hamid Karzai, the suspected kingpin of the country’s booming opium trade, has been on the CIA payroll for the past eight years. However, the article serves as little more than a whitewash because it fails to address the fact that one of the primary reasons behind the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan was the agenda to reinstate the Golden Crescent drug trade.
The CIA pays Karzai and his brother for a variety of services, including helping to recruit an Afghan paramilitary force that operates at the C.I.A.’s direction in and around the southern city of Kandahar, Mr. Karzai’s home.”  The Times reveals how, after security forces discovered a huge tractor-trailer full of heroin outside Kandahar in 2004, the commander, Habibullah Jan, received a telephone call from Ahmed Karzai, the brother of President Hamid Karzai, asking him to release the vehicle and the drugs.”
In 2006, following the discovery of another cache of heroin, “United States investigators told other American officials that they had discovered links between the drug shipment and a bodyguard believed to be an intermediary for Ahmed Wali Karzai.”
The Times article  discusses how the CIA uses Karzai as a go-between between the Americans and the Taliban. He is also directly implicated in the manufacturing of phony ballots and polling stations that were attributed to the President’s disputed election victory.
Officials quoted by The Times described Karzai as a Mafia-like figure who expanded his influence over the drug trade with the aid of U.S. efforts to eliminate his competitors.
That’s why the Afghan opium trade has exploded since the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan! The U.N says that the drug trade is now worth $65 billion. Afghanistan is exporting the equivalent of 3,500 tons that leave the country each year. Other figures put the number far higher, at around 6,100 tons a year.
The New York Times exposé pins the blame on Karzai, but fails to mention that behind the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan was the United States’ agenda to restore, not eradicate, the drug trade.
 The notion that the “Taliban benefits from the drug trade” and that the U.S. is trying to stop it, as both Bush and Obama claimed, seems to be  the complete opposite of what is actually happening.
What is actually happening is that their flooding the streets of America and Britain with cheap heroin, destroying lives while making obscene profits!
The New York Times implies that the drug lord Karzai being on the CIA payroll is just an embarrassing coincidence. In reality he is a middle man working for the U.S. military-industrial complex’s whose obvious control of the drug trade in Afghanistan stretches back decades and was only interrupted when the Taliban came to power.
So this is the real history of the Afghan opium trade that the Times won’t tell you, and in failing to do so the article serves only to whitewash the true scale of the agenda behind the U.S. occupation of Afghanistan and the real role that the CIA plays in the world wide drug trade!

Epidemic? Half of US teens ‘meet criteria for mental disorder’


Epidemic? Half of US teens ‘meet criteria for mental disorder’





            According to the study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, around half of US teens meet the criteria for a mental disorder and nearly one in four report having a mood, behavior or anxiety disorder that interferes with daily life, American researchers say fifty-one percent of boys and 49 percent of girls aged 13-19 have a mood, behavior, anxiety or substance use disorder
In 22.2 percent of teens, the disorder was so severe it impaired their daily activities and caused great distress, says the study led by Kathleen Merikangas of the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH).
"The prevalence of severe emotional and behavior disorders is even higher than the most frequent major physical conditions in adolescence, including asthma or diabetes," the study says.
Mental problems do not get the same attention from public health authorities even though they cost US families around a quarter of a trillion dollars a year, according to the study.
Around nine percent of all US children have asthma and less than a quarter of one percent of all people under the age of 20 have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Merikangas and a team of researchers analyzed data from the National Comorbidity Study-Adolescent Supplement, which surveyed more than 10,000 US teens.
The study is the first to track the prevalence of a broad range of mental disorders in a nationally representative sample of US teens.
They found that nearly a third of the teens met the criteria for the most common mental disorder among US youth, anxiety disorders, which include social phobia and panic "attacks".
This class of disorder also had the earliest median onset age, occurring in children as young as six years old.
Behavior disorders, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, were the next most common condition (19.1 percent), followed by mood disorders (14.3 percent) such as depression.
Eleven percent of teens with a mood disorder, 10 percent with behavior disorders and eight percent who had anxiety disorders, especially social phobics, met the criteria for severe impairment, meaning their condition affected their day-to-day life and caused them great distress.
Teen mental disorder rates mirror those seen in adults, suggesting that most adults develop a mental disorder before adulthood, say the researchers, calling for earlier intervention and prevention, and more research to determine what the risk factors are for mental disorders in youth.

Feds to Prosecute Californians if Prop 19 Passes


 "Prohibition...goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded." Abraham Lincoln. December 1840  

"In any civilized society, it is every citizen's responsibility to obey just laws. But at the same time, it is every citizen's responsibility to disobey unjust laws."Martin Luther King Jr

SAN FRANCISCO —  So Attorney General Eric Holder is warning Californians that the federal government will not look the other way, as it has with medical marijuana, if voters next month make California the first state to legalize pot.
The Huffington Post posted the article which contained a letter from Attorney General Eric Holder.
       Marijuana is illegal under federal law, which drug agents will continue to "vigorously enforce" against anyone carrying, growing or selling it, Holder said.
The attorney general's statements speaking against Proposition 19 has set up another showdown between Californians and the Feds over marijuana if the measure passes.
     With Prop 19 leading in the polls, the letter also raised questions about the extent to which federal drug agents would go into communities across the state to catch small-time users and dealers, or whether they even had the resources to do it.
     Medical marijuana users and experts are skeptical, saying there isn’t much the federal government could do to slow down the march to legalization.
This is obviously now one of our biggest industries and its taxable income for the State while keeping marijuana prices relatively low.
     Also think about how many tourists will flock here like they’re going to Napa but instead they’re enjoying the freedoms of San Fransterdam. This will make California the New Amsterdam but hopefully we can have a high level of personal responsibility and respect. We need to be conscientiousness and make sure that we prove that legal marijuana can be handled safely, sensibly, and maturely.

             OK, so if/when Prop 19 measure passes, the state would regulate recreational pot use. Adults could possess up to one ounce of the drug and grow small gardens on private property. Local governments would decide whether to allow and tax sales. The Justice Department remains committed to enforcing the Controlled Substances Act in all states.
     "We will vigorously enforce the laws against those individuals and organizations that possess, manufacture or distribute marijuana for recreational use, even if such activities are permitted under state law," the district attorney Holder wrote.
      He also said legalizing recreational marijuana would be a "significant impediment" to the government's joint efforts with state and local law enforcement to target drug traffickers, who often distribute pot alongside cocaine and other drugs. The attorney general said the ballot measure's passage would "significantly undermine" efforts to keep California cities and towns safe.
      Officials in Los Angeles County have been aggressively trying to cramp down on the explosion of medical marijuana dispensaries and have vowed to continue to assist the federal government in drug investigations. County Sheriff Lee Baca and District Attorney Steve Cooley said at a news conference "We will continue as we are today regardless of whether it passes or doesn't pass," Baca said.  Deputies won't go after users in their homes, but public use of the drug will be targeted, he said.

   They also asked that the Obama administration to sue California if Prop 19 passes. They said legalizing pot presented the same threat to federal authority as Arizona's recent immigration law. In that case, Justice Department lawyers filed a lawsuit to block the enforcement of the law, saying that it infringed on federal powers to regulate immigration and therefore violated the U.S. Constitution. The case is now before a federal appeals court.
       How the hell does immigration have anything to do with Californians being allowed to grow their own pot? These two situations are not the same at all! I believe using the immigration issue in the argument for reasons to fight California’s decision if Prop19 passes is Ludacris.
Also if California prevents police from enforcing the stricter federal ban on marijuana, the Supreme Court has ruled that the federal government cannot order local law enforcement to act. So that’s good!
It "is a very tough-sounding statement that the attorney general has issued, but it's more bark than bite," law professor Robert Mikos said.
VOTE NO!! VOTE NO!!
     Allen Hopper, a drug law reform expert at the American Civil Liberties Union in Northern California, predicted that federal agents would selectively crack down on marijuana growers and merchants instead of going after every Californian who uses pot.
"They don't have the resources to flood the state with DEA agents to be drug cops," he said.
Nearly all arrests for marijuana crimes are made at the state level. Of more than 847,000 marijuana-related arrests nationwide in 2008, for example, just over 6,300 suspects were booked by federal law enforcement, or less than 1 percent.
Consequently, it sounds like the fight over passing prop 19 may end up the same way medical marijuana has. After Californians approved their first medical marijuana law in 1996, Clinton administration officials vowed a harsh crackdown. But nearly 15 years later, California's billion-dollar medical marijuana industry is thriving.
      During the Bush regime, dispensaries across the state faced regular raids from federal anti-drug agents. The owners were sometimes sentenced to decades in prison for drug trafficking. Yet the medical marijuana industry still grew and is still expanding rapidly throughout the state. And now 13 other states along with the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana with California continuing to lead the way.
Nov 2nd, 2010 Vote NO! FOR PROP 19!! Prop 19 is Flawed

The Most Amazing Ancient Artifacts Part 1.


1. "Genetic disc" carved in Lydite.
 These are very strange artifacts from Colombia in South America. As they were found in Colombia and they do not fit any existing pre-Columbian culture, we must consider that those artifacts are at least older than 6,000 years, but we cannot explain what kind of technology they used to be able to make such instruments and such tools made with lydite.
The most famous industrial designer and architect in Colombia, Professor Jamie Gutierrez and his team, have been collecting strange artifacts from his country for decades. His most important piece is the so-called Genetic Disc.



2. "Genetic Disc" showing microscopic biology.
Here you can see the disc made out of Lydite. Lydite is an exceptionally hard stone and it's nearly the same hardness as granite but with the flakey and delicate structure of leaves. With that being said it would be practically impossible to make the same artifacts today in our modern era using the same materials. The Ancient techniques responsible for these Lydite carvings, in my opinion are just absolutely astounding.


3. "Genetic Disc" showing stages of fetal development and sexual reproduction.
The diameter of this disc they call the “Genetic Disc,” is about 27 centimeters. On this disc you have several things presented which usually you can only see with a microscope. I’m going to repeat that again, The artist or artists responsible for the “Genetic Disc,” carved depictions of human biology that can only be seen with a microscope! For example, on the left side around 11 o'clock you can see one egg, human egg without sperm cells and another depiction with sperm cells. On the right side at approximately one o'clock you can see some microscopic cells along with several other very strange presentations which scientists could not explain.  Look in any Bio text book and you will see that the egg with and without spermia looks exactly like the presentation on this Genetic Disc.

On the reverse side you have, on top, several presentations of fetus in different size, different age, ending up with what looks like a little child. You see also, at the end of the plate at around six o'clock, female and male. And also on the right side around nine o'clock you can see the presentation of man, woman, and child. Strange how they present those human-like heads.

4. Very Strange carving, use unknown. (Lydite)

5. Alligator Flute (Lydite)

6. Front View. Flute w/ Holes perfectly "drilled" (Lydite)
The Flute holes are carved so perfectly that it would be difficult for us to replicate even with today’s machinery.


7. Tool used to cut umbilical cord. (Lydite)
 Here you can see a knife carved out of the same material. On top of the knife on the handle, you have a mother's head, below you have the child's head, and the umbilical cord is going around the neck of the child. So that means this knife would have been used to cut the umbilical cord, saving the child's life.


8. Tool to assist pregnancy. (Lydite)
This instrument might have been used for helping the child coming out, leaving the mother, when there were some complications. It is also made out of the same material, lydite. Which is found to be more medically sanitary and safe than the stainless steel instruments used today.



9. Tool to assist pregnancy. (Lydite)
You have here in the center the child's head coming out. And on the reverse side, you can put only your thumb inside. That means you can only use this instrument with your fingers meaning you cannot use power. So it might have actually been safer for helping the child leaving the mother than the instruments we are using today because sometimes even the modern instruments can damage the child's head.


10. Carving, mother and child (Lydite)

11. Strange molded figurine (Lydite)

12. Advanced Medical Tools. (Lydite)

13. Collage of different Ancient Tools (Granite, Lydite)
You can see, each piece fits exactly every kind of hand, never mind how big the size of the hand was.

Each instrument, each tool, fits exactly each hand which was using those instruments. Amazing!

Thanks for Checking this out! It's Astounding how little we know about the History of the Human Race on Earth and everytime we find an incredible Ancient Artifact i believe we fill in another missing piece of the puzzle. I look forward to sharing more Amazing Ancient Artifacts in the near future!

The Secret World of Monsanto; GMO's & Military Black Op's.

         Most people know that Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) are produced by introducing genes from one species into another in order to transfer so called desirable traits. Multinational seed giant Monsanto is known around the world for its aggressive GMO policies. It is also known for intimidating and suing farmers and small agricultural companies and collecting over $21 million Dollars in lawsuits.
        Monsanto makes it an arduous task for farmers to get non GMO seeds these days and it’s almost impossible to avoid contamination of their fields from GM-crops? Detectives working for Monsanto have been caught trespassing on private farms and using helicopters to spy on farmer’s fields. They take samples and if they find any GMO plants growing there (or say they have), they then sue, saying they own the crop. It’s a way to make money since farmers can’t fight back in court and they have no choice but to settle.
An Article by the Nation show’s Monsanto hired Ex Military to their bidding for them. “Blackwater,” is like the enforcement arm for corporate interests only it does not operate under the same “restrictions” that government enforcers have to operate under. It’s like a private army for The Powers That Be (TPTB) that can trespass and spy on farmers and anyone who might be against the GMO industry.
The moral of the story is that Monsanto has done an evil cornucopia of things to keep farmers and everyone else from having easy access to buying, collecting, and saving of NORMAL seeds. They’ve bought up the seed companies across the Midwest. They’ve written Monsanto seed laws (http://www.ethicalinvesting.com/monsanto/news/10040.htm) and gotten legislators to put them through,  that make cleaning, collecting, and storing seeds so onerous with fees and paperwork that having normal seed becomes almost impossible. Before these Monsanto seed laws existed, farmers just collected their seeds, stored them in the shed to use the next year, and shared whatever they wanted to share with their friends and neighbors and even be able to sell some seeds if they wanted to. That’s all been killed.
This is no game folks. We are being hit from all sides with a planned agenda to make a very few families even richer than they already are. And now that Farmers all over the World are having troubles with their crops due to high aluminum levels, what a coincidence that Monsanto will “come to the rescue” with aluminum resistance genes because normal plants die off in the presence of excess aluminum!  This works perfectly with the current “geo-engineering” scheme already in place that is filling our atmosphere with chemtrails containing aluminum and barium. This is nothing short of biological warfare mixed with an attack on our right to produce and farm our own agriculture.

#4 The Antikythera Mechanism

#3 The Ica Stones

#7 Giant Stone Balls of Costa Rica

#6 Ancient Flying Aircraft found in South America

#5 The Baghdad Battery

      Over the last few decades, miners in South Africa have been digging up mysterious metal spheres. Origin unknown, these spheres measure approximately an inch or so in diameter, and some are etched with three parallel grooves running around the equator. Two types of spheres have been found: one is composed of a solid bluish metal with flecks of white; the other is hollowed out and filled with a spongy white substance. The kicker is that the rock in which they were found is Precambrian - and dated to 2.8 billion years old! Who made them and for what purpose is unknown.

2.The Dropa Stones The Dropa Stone Discs

In 1938, an archeological expedition led by Dr. Chi Pu Tei into the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains of China made an astonishing discovery in a group of caves that had apparently been occupied by some ancient culture. Buried in the dust of ages on the cave floor were hundreds of stone disks. Measuring about nine inches in diameter, each had a circle cut into the center and was etched with a spiral groove, making it look to the modern world like some ancient record player from 10,000 to 12,000 years old. The spiral groove, it turns out, is actually composed of tiny hieroglyphics that tell the incredible story of spaceships from some distant world that crash-landed in the mountains. The ships were piloted by people who called themselves the Dropa, and the remains of whose descendents, possibly, were found in the cave.

3. The Ica Stones Ica stones

          In the 1930s, Dr. Javier Cabrera, a medical doctor, received a gift of a strange stone from a local farmer. Dr. Cabrera was so intrigued that he collected more than 1,100 of these andesite stones, which are estimated to be between 500 and 1,500 years old and have become known collectively as the Ica Stones. The stones bear etchings, many of which are sexually graphic (which was common to the culture); some picture idols and others depict such practices as open-heart surgery and brain transplants. The most astonishing etchings, however, clearly represent dinosaurs - brontosaurs, triceratops (see photo), stegosaurus and pterosaurs.
A perplexing artifact was recovered by sponge-divers from a shipwreck in 1900 off the coast of Antikythera, a small island that lies northwest of Crete. The divers brought up from the wreck a number of different marble and bronze statues that had apparently been the ship's cargo. Among the findings was a hunk of corroded bronze that contained some kind of mechanism composed of many gears and wheels. Writing on the case indicated that it was made in 80 B.C., and many experts at first thought it was an astrolabe, an astronomer's tool. An x-ray of the mechanism, however, revealed it to be far more complex, containing a sophisticated system of differential gears. Gearing of this complexity was not known to exist until 1575! It is still unknown who constructed this amazing instrument 2,000 years ago or how the technology was lost.

5. The Baghdad Battery Baghdad Battery

Today batteries can be found in any grocery, drug, convenience and department store you come across. Well, here's a battery that's 2,000 years old! Known as the Baghdad Battery, this curiosity was found in the ruins of a Parthian village believed to date back to between 248 B.C. and 226 A.D. The device consists of a 5-1/2-inch high clay vessel inside of which was a copper cylinder held in place by asphalt, and inside of that was an oxidized iron rod. Experts who examined it concluded that the device needed only to be filled with an acid or alkaline liquid to produce an electric charge. It is believed that this ancient battery might have been used for electroplating objects with gold. If so, how was this technology lost... and the battery not rediscovered for another 1,800 years?

6. Ancient Model Aircraft Ancient Model Aircraft

There are artifacts belonging to ancient Egyptian and Central American cultures that look amazingly like modern-day aircraft. The Egyptian artifact, found in a tomb at Saqquara, Egypt in 1898, is a six-inch wooden object that strongly resembles a model airplane, with fuselage, wings and tail. Experts believe the object is so aerodynamic that it is actually able to glide. The small object discovered in Central America (shown at right), and estimated to be 1,000 years old, is made of gold and could easily be mistaken for a model of a delta-wing aircraft - or even the Space Shuttle. It even features what looks like a pilot's seat.

7. Giant Stone Balls of Costa Rica  http://www.mysteryspheres.com/info.htm
     Giant Stone Balls of Costa Rica Workmen hacking and burning their way through the dense jungle of Costa Rica to clear an area for banana plantations in the 1930s stumbled upon some incredible objects: dozens of stone balls, many of which were perfectly spherical. They varied in size from as small as a tennis ball to an astonishing 8 feet in diameter and weighing 16 tons! Although the great stone balls are clearly man-made, it is unknown who made them, for what purpose and, most puzzling, how they achieved such spherical precision.

     So! The Moral of the Story and the point of all of this is that we need to continue asking questions about our past and have a whole new generation of curious and open-minded scientists that will reexamine and rediscover the true history of human life on earth.
