Hawaiian Volcano, How to Mitigate Damages

If lava is coming towards you, RUN!

I will focus on simple stuff related to VOG.   VOG will exasperate respiratory problems.   It can also cause flu like symptoms, ache all over, heavy legs, dizziness, and difficulty thinking clearly.

Asthma and coughing are likely effects.  

Some ideas to mitigate damage to humans and pets.

Stay inside when possible, use air-conditioning if available, and use HEPA filters in each room you spend any serious time in.   From EPA  -- its almost like they want to scare you off, its so difficult and expensive, NOT!

Air purifier information

A room air cleaner can be effective in reducing levels of SO2 and/or PM2.5 from the air. Those living close to eruptive vents need protection from both SO2 and PM2.5, so will need a specialized air cleaner which has both a HEPA (PM2.5) filter and an acid gas (SO2) filter (e.g. activated carbon or other sorbent). Those living further from the vent can use an air cleaner designed to filter fine particles only (HEPA) since they are not exposed to substantial amounts of SO2.
Quality room air cleaners can be expensive and are designed for a room that can be closed-off from the rest of the house and the outdoors. Periodic filter replacement and other maintenance is required for air cleaners to perform as designed.

Some recommend soaking a bed sheet in baking soda, 1 tablespoon  per gallon.    The dosing sounds low to me, why not kick it up to a cup.    In theory, this sheet, hung up, will attract positively charge particles, acid from the volcanic emissions.

Use this winds map to see when your impact may be the worst.,21.99,2581/loc=-157.439,19.878

Here is an SO guide on how to use the wind map.

This from SOEST is interesting, but misses the point, my point, being that I am heavily impacted by the Volcano, on Oahu at this time and for the last 4 days it was noticeable.

And here, a nice summary of mitigating actions you can take, especially if you like essential oils.

Here is some satellite imagery on VOG and SO2.

Garden Spring 2018

I am a little extreme when it comes to the concept of what you put into your body actually affects your body.    So here are some garden pictures, and a few dog pix to boot.    The Shepherds are pushing 10 and 11, so they are doing great.    Geriatric blood panels show no problems, and they get the obvious supplements for GSD, not to mention as much fresh organic asparagus as they want.   They do <this year> self harvest, but it's the 4th year and the production is amazing.  

So I grow 80% of my own food and are careful on the rest.

Here are a few snippets of the garden circa 2018 spring, it doesn't show the whole extent or the outer "melon and squash outskirts", but all I can do for now.  

Every year I create 1 or 2 more raised planters, 2 high or 3 high CMU blocks.    Last year I got free Cinder block from Steins, what a deal!   I fill them with tree and yard waste in fall, let them self compost and then top with on site made premium compost.   At some point the garden will be all raised, except for plants that "bolt" from too much heat, keep them right in the ground, and in shade if possible.

stock out, comments appreciated.


Don't Kill Me, Hear Me Out, Why is the Democratic Party A Failure to the Left?

I have watched and wondered how so called leaders of the Democratic Party have been so dysfunctional, so weak in their arguments, and their simplistic method of taking arguments against them, and they simply flip them around in some Orwellian echo chamber and direct the same arguments or memes against their opponents.

The incompetence is not "incompetent", there is another strategy going on, and its has nothing to do with the benefit of the American citizen.   Imagine that, I mean we have all been feeling that way for at least a decade.     They want corporate cash and they want to avoid a "freedom free for all" like the 60's or 70's, can't have that.

stock out.     Want to hear your opinion on this.

And Lot's Wife chimes in The Democratic party is not making a strategic mistake. They are doing exactly what their function in this system requires them to do. They guard the gates against the reemergence of the left in American politics. The Corporate Democratic party is only concerned with winning primaries not general elections. That is their primary responsibility. Defeat the left and if the Republicans win so be it. They have still made a lot of money from their Corporate overlords and have a future in consulting, positions within corporate America, or as lobbyists. Corporate America does not want a repeat of the 60s and 70s when there was an "excess of democracy”.

Debra Wasserman Schultz had the election manager illegally destroy paper ballots. 2 years old now, no criminal charges? This is in Broward Florida, keep that in mind.

 from a reader and contributor  -- rest assured, there is some MAB Mutual Assured Blackmail going on, especially as it relates to sexual escapades -- as some of these can end a career, change voters opinions.  

There seems to be a lot of money laundering going on with these bloated campaign budgets.
DNC funnel to Hillary campaign, Bernie 'leftovers' from stolen primary funneled to Hillary, PAC money of all sorts funneled to DNC. And very dubious political 'gifts' given to loyal pols, like Netflix deal with Obama or Goldman Sachs 'speaking fees' to both Clintons... etc. etc.
Lots more on CF-Gate

Flu Statistics 2017/2018 A Horrible Flu Season -- Bad Vaccine and Weakened Immune Systems

I got the "Flu That Stays Forever" this March, after I got a flu vaccine in November.    First Flu vaccine I ever took, I asked for a low mercury vaccine and they found one that looked low to me.

Fortunately, I was able to kick that killer flu in 2 days, but the cough stuck around for weeks.    I attribute that to general good health and a concentration on pro-biotic diet.  

Radiation does more than just damage DNA or create cancer.   By disrupting the intercellular communication often via electric gradients, radiation can contribute to a wide variety of woes, in medical terms this is called morbidity, kind of the opposite of health. 

A site contributor wrote up the following -- and share it I will.   Mahalo for the efforts, it is making a difference.


This addresses your concerns about flu symptoms. It’s real; we’re all living with it. Some, like you, are more exposed. Spokane is downwind of Hanford. Do not be deceived by MSM assurances that Hanford is secure. It’s not; Hanford leaks.

Secondly, Fukushima’s initial blast debris came right through the Seattle, Spokane, Boise, SLC region. Most west coast radiation detectors were non-operational [deliberately, in my opinion], however, those that were active collected high readings in the intermountain zone where you live. Boise’s rain was super hot for several days.

If you are a researcher in death statistics, you would find thousands of excess deaths in US western states in the 14 months following Fukushima’s initial meltdown [3 cores +1 spent fuel pool]. Excess deaths can be pulled from mortality stats by looking at the differential mortality rate pre and post Fukushima. The number of excess deaths of new borns and infants can’t be explained away, as their demographic is among the most sensitive to rad poisons.

It has been done - search for it - the results are horrifying in scope and for the MSM's silence. For those of us who haven’t had an acute event - heart attack or stroke - there are millions with increased diabetes symptoms, cancers, Alzheimers, headaches, cataracts, and the flu. It’s chronic, related to Fukushima, and will get worse for those who lack awareness.

Japan’s nuclear agency stated four years ago that the releases to the environment from Fukushima were the equivalent of 383 Hiroshima-sized bombs. And the calculation was based on only one isotope, cesium. Fukushima’s debris include more than 1,900 isotopes. Japan’s official nuke agency, and the owners of Fukushima, have been caught repeatedly low-balling the size of releases to the environment. It is safe to assume that the 383 number is actually far higher, perhaps many thousands, perhaps millions of Hiroshima-sized bombs. 

What to do? Consider cannabis. It is a proven protectant; it boosts and maintains the immune system. Its non-psychoactive fraction - CBD - is renown for shrinking tumors and curing cancer. 

I contribute content to this fellow’s site. Info filtered through his site is generally not found in the MSM but I give it a higher trust level. If you want to become educated about the threat, this is a good place to start.

Radiation Decreases Immune Systems, Post Fukushima, Flu Stats Have Skyrocketed

Please take the poll.  

Flying boulders of fire, and possible 1000' tsunami be damned, this is GOLF!

The Toxic Environment -- Some Place The Blame 100% on Capitalism

This is a topic I will revisit several times and beef up this page. 

Because things overall suck right now, people tend to blame all of the systems that are in place.    When in fact there is a very targeted approach by the powers that be, to "make everything suck", to make everyone hate each other, to create chaos and then pull power and wealth from that chaos.   To install a One World Government.

Many people and governments now recognize the above fact, and are fighting against it, as any freedom loving individual should.     Russia is one, it will be almost impossible to "turn" Russia.    Whilst western countries have been distracted and weakened, Russia has created a new level up of weaponry using nuclear propulsion and hypersonic "gliders" which nullify other countries abilities to stop and attack or to protect their own "assets".    Scary?   Maybe.    A sharp blow to the NWO ability to take Russia out militarily?   Yes.    A soft coup won't work on Russia.
The new Democratic talking points see to focus on giving free stuff away, especially to the indoctrinated Millenial class.

4 Common Capitalism Myths Debunked

The term Marx coined stuck and has led to some confusion about why markets actually work.
 One of the most disappointing things I face as a college professor is the lack of understanding most students have regarding capitalism. The simple fact is, despite its importance to our daily lives, relatively few people have a strong grasp of what causes economic growth and why markets are so central to continuously rising standards of living.
In my teaching, I have encountered several myths or misperceptions about capitalism from students as well as individuals outside the classroom. Dispelling these myths has become a focus of much of my teaching.

Myth #1: Capitalism Was “Created”

One of the most pervasive misunderstandings about capitalism is the idea that it was created by someone. Some of this can be attributed to the language used to describe Adam Smith’s role in explaining the market process. The common reference to Smith as “the father of modern economics” can lead people to assume that he in some way created the market system. It is also not unreasonable to conclude that, since socialism is generally reliant on planning, many would assume that capitalism is as well.
Markets arise out of our human qualities.
However, as Friedrich Hayek explained, the market system is not really “created” as much as it is a system that evolves out of human interaction and discovery. Similar to language, the market economy was not created by a single individual or group but evolved over a long period based on the interactions of many people. The rules and institutions which support the market economy arose from these interactions. This notion of a spontaneous order emerging out of the individual actions of millions of people, and the discovery of rules and institutions that will facilitate the continual progress of this order, may be the most important aspect of capitalism. It succeeds because it arises out of humanity itself.
Unlike socialism, which attempts to impose rules and institutions regardless of their conformity to human nature or desires, markets arise out of our human qualities. And the rules and institutions that facilitate the ability of markets to perform are discovered as we discover ourselves and in the way we interact with one another.

Myth #2: Capitalism Creates Poverty

This may be the most pernicious of all the misunderstandings I encounter regarding markets. The idea that absent market capitalism would create greater shared wealth within society continues to permeate the thinking of a great deal of people. This is despite mounting evidence that, as markets are used by more and more countries, global poverty is steadily decreasing.
All developed countries have market-based economies.
Importantly, the evidence is clear that this decline in poverty has happened as countries have come to embrace market capitalism as the way forward – especially China and India. As other countries see the success of these two previously very poor countries and begin following their lead, we can expect to see poverty in the rest of the developing world significantly reduced as well. In the Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith explained how markets, by continuously expanding the range of goods and services to an ever-increasing number of people, would produce what he called “universal opulence.” However, since Karl Marx & Friedrich Engels first launched their frontal assault on capitalism, many intellectuals, entertainers, and even politicians have embraced the idea that capitalism causes poverty, or at least prevents people from escaping it, and more disturbingly, that socialism leads to greater prosperity for the masses.
It’s not surprising, then, that these ideas filter down to the public-at-large. But this idea that capitalism leads to poverty for the masses while socialism leads to their prosperity is exactly opposite to all the evidence we have.
All developed countries have market-based economies. Those developing countries seeing the greatest growth have adopted market principles. Contrast this with countries that have fully adopted socialism, such as Venezuela or North Korea. It is troubling that incoming students do not understand this.

Myth #3: Capitalism Is about Capital

The underlying foundation of capitalism is human freedom.
The term “capitalism” was coined by Marx as a pejorative towards market-based economies. The term stuck and has led to some confusion about why markets actually work. As economic historian Deidre McCloskey has noted, people at all times have attempted to amass capital (land, resources, and money). But those collective attempts didn’t lead to the type of society-wide economic growth we have seen since 1800. The underlying foundation of capitalism is human freedom. As Adam Smith recognized, when individuals are permitted to pursue their self-interest through markets, they are amazingly good at finding ways of bettering not only themselves but society as well.
Equally important, as economist Joseph Schumpeter explained, out of this freedom arises a continuous process of improvement – what he called “creative destruction.” It is this constant innovation – discovering and bringing to market new products and services, finding ways of improving existing products and services, and finding more efficient ways to create these products and services – that truly drives economic growth and increases standards of living.
The fact is, while the accumulation of capital is a feature of a market economy, it’s certainly not exclusive to it. It is individual freedom and the innovation that arises from it that drives the engine of capitalism.

Myth #4: Capitalism Creates “Winners” and “Losers”

While it is true that some individuals and firms succeed while others do not in capitalism, this also is hardly an exclusive feature of markets. All economic systems have some individuals who succeed and others who fail in one form or another.
Over the long run, society in its entirety benefits as a result of markets. 
However, capitalism is different in this regard in two important ways. First, capitalism increases the number of “winners.” Unlike other systems, capitalism reduces the barriers to entry into market activity for larger numbers of individuals. The resulting competition provides greater opportunities for success (both great and small) than in any other system. Second, over the long run, society in its entirety benefits as a result of markets. This is because markets, as mentioned above, bring more goods and services within reach of more people than any other system.
Markets also produce products and services that improve our lives in ways that our ancestors could never have dreamed. Just consider all the things that exist today, that didn’t a mere thirty years ago. The simple fact is that today even the poorest modern Americans have more goods and services at their disposal than kings and queens did just two hundred years ago.
So, although individual firms may fail, and individual people may not gain great wealth, the fact is that, over the long-run, we all win by enjoying better living standards than previous generations.

We Need Better Education

If the United States is going to continue to see its economy grow and the living standards of its citizens improve, it is important that students are taught the basics of the economic system that has allowed them to experience Adam Smith’s “universal opulence.” Without this basic knowledge, they're easily led to believe the myths I’ve mentioned and to vote for politicians and policies that will ultimately undermine the very system that has made their lives significantly better than their ancestors, as well as better than most of their contemporaries across the globe.
