Sky News: Trumpet Sounds Return, Waterspouts in Croatia, Alaska Earthquake & Volcano

Busy days ahead for the Earth Changes News Report:

First on the agenda, the "Trumpets in the Sky" phenomenon that began roughly two years ago has returned, this time to Saskatchewan, Canada. The eerie sound, which has been heard over the past few years from places as far-flung as Costa Rica, Sweden as well as Canada and the US, was reported yesterday in Terrence, Saskatchewan, by multiple witnesses and reported by the local media and can be heard at the following link: Eerie Sounds Reported in Canada:

A physics professor at the University of Saskatchewan theorized that it's likely electromagnetic noise emitted from auroras and radiation belts. Incidentally, a large Coronal Mass Ejection from the sun was witnessed yesterday. Could this be the explanation for the odd sounds and are these the same "trumpet-like" noises talked about in biblical prophecies?

 There are more odd, climate change anomalies also being reported, actually probably too many to list here in a timely manner. A stunning group of at least twenty separate waterspouts were documented in the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Dubrovnik, Croatia, yesterday. Video of the waterspouts can be viewed at the following link: 20 Waterspouts Spotted in Croatia

Deadly and record-breaking cold and snowy weather has hit parts of South America, including Brazil and Peru. The largest snow in decades has fallen in Brazil, while a bitter cold snap has claimed the lives of more than 250,000 alpacas and other live stock in Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay. The inclement weather is also responsible for the deaths of at least five people across the region. Link to full story: 

In a [perhaps] related Earth Changes story, a new volcanic geyser erupted outside of the Rome airport this past week as well, ejecting ash and debris some fifteen-feet into the air, and causing temporary delays at Fiumicino airport, which is Europe's sixth busiest. Full story here:

Meanwhile, yet ANOTHER massive haboob (dust storm) has blanketed Phoenix, Arizona, the fifth or sixth in what, less than two years now? (I've honestly lost count...)

And scientists "think" they have discovered what is causing literally thousands of beautiful dolphins and porpoises to die around the world: Dolphin deaths linked to measles-like contagion:

That troubling sinkhole in Assumption Parish, Louisiana, continues to grow at an alarming rate. It has now reached a size of over twenty-five acres and shows no signs of stopping. Insane new video from the scene shows the geological anomaly gobbling up a large groups of trees in mere seconds! (Possible cross-links to Gulf of Mexico oil "volcano" from 2010.)

Veniaminof Volcano in Alaska erupted with new intensity only yesterday, emitting an immense ash cloud over three miles into the air. The eruption came after a strong 7.0 earthquake rocked the remote region in the Aleutian Islands chain. Yet, scientists claim that the temblor and volcanic eruption are "unrelated". Of course... More information on the volcano can be found here:  (Geologic upheaval)

Add  to all of this the possible specter of war in Syria, and you have the recipe for what? I'm not exactly certain there are words for where all of these things are leading. Individually, these news stories might not seem all that alarming, but when added together, in a space of less than twenty-four hours, I feel it is obvious we are now crossing into new, uncharted territory.

I won't sugar-coat things, as I feel that is insulting. Anyone now pretending that you are not currently being affected by the collision of all of these various, disturbing events is living in a dream world. You are absolutely being affected by this, each and every day. You are affected each time you purchase food, as you watch the price go up precipitously over each passing day. You are paying the price when you gas up your car at the pump, and you have to make changes to your budget about what you now can or cannot afford. What item will you have to go without today or this week? You are paying the cost each time your insurance bill arrives in the mail, as you watch your premiums skyrocket. Those "super-storm" and mass tornado outbreak clean-ups are not cheap, or is that not something anyone cares to ponder?

Feeling sick lately? Finding yourself at the doctor's office more than you ever remember?  Join the crowd, as the climatic earth changes manifesting all around us affects the health of not just humans, but also our animal companions. These chaotic earth changes are also affecting our mental health, as more and more people go off the deep end or are turning to drugs and alcohol to numb the stunning realization of what we are witnessing, all around us, twenty-four hours a day. You hear the stories leading off the news broadcast every evening now. They can no longer be ignored.

I will continue to monitor these events, so stay tuned for any new or breaking information...

Long in the Tooth: Man Wants to Clone John Lennon with Extracted Tooth DNA

A Canadian dentist who purchased an extracted molar that once belonged in the mouth of former Beatle John Lennon has revealed that he plans to have the music icon cloned by using DNA from the molar... a la Jurassic Park!

Dr. Michael Zuk purchased the decayed molar from the original owner—a former housekeeper of Lennon's—at auction in 2011, paying £19,100 ($30,000 US) for the tooth. In a press release submitted this week, Zuk claims that the DNA value of the tooth is "easily worth $2.5 million to the right company", adding "It actually is priceless if it means we can clone the Beatle."  Regarding the cloning, Zuk says, "With researchers working on ways to clone mammoths, the same technology certainly could make human cloning a reality".

In 1996, scientists at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, made headlines when they successfully managed to clone a sheep named Dolly by using the extracted DNA from another sheep. Since then, great strides have been made in cloning, but ethical and moral ramifications have kept the procedure from going main stream.

Lennon was shot and  killed in 1980 by crazed fan Mark David Chapman while entering his apartment building the Dakota in New York City's Upper West Side. He was forty-years-old at the time of his death.

Meow Mix: Cat Lady Gets Eaten by Feline Horde

A woman in England who lived as a recluse in a house with a large brood of cats and dogs was apparently eaten by her pets after she died!

By the time local authorities discovered the body of 56-year-old Janet Veal, she'd been dead for as long as three months. Her house made for a gruesome scene, littered with the rotting carcasses of numerous pet cats and dogs that had been confined in the house after her death and had died of apparent starvation.

The coroner's report believes that Veal died of natural causes, possibly from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, but discovered evidence that her body had been eaten upon by the cats and dogs that had been in her care, in a desperate attempt to stave off a horrible death by starvation. Only a few of the cats had survived by eating the remains of their owner.

Investigators report that the house was in a complete state of disarray, suggesting that Veal was a hoarder. Many hoarders of personal effects also become pet hoarders, not knowing when to stop adding more animals to their menageries, even when they are rendered unable, physically or financially, to care for them.

Long Overdue: Borrowed Library Book Returned After 185 Years

A history book checked out of a library has finally been returned...185 years after it was borrowed!

The book, volume two of a series titled Ancient Civilizations by distinguished author Charles Rollin, was checked out of the Centre College's Grace Doherty Library in Danville, Kentucky, on July 21, 1854. At the time, Franklin Pierce was the 14th President of the United States, and Kentucky was still a slave state. Someone had inscribed a rather intriguing note in the back of the book which reads, "From this date, I shall eat neither meat nor gravy."

The overdue book was recently discovered in the nearby Kentucky School for Deaf. An inscription in the book states it was originally published and placed in the library's collection in the year 1828.

The director of the library states that there are eight volumes in the series Ancient Civilizations and that all of the volumes have disappeared from the library's extensive inventory over the years. The returned volume is potentially worth a great deal of money and an important historical find, so it more than likely will not be available for library-goers to check out in the future. If late charges were to be imposed on the overdue title at ten cents a day, the late charge would amount to almost  $7000.

Baboons' Strange Behavior at Dutch Zoo Has Experts Puzzled

A large group of baboons (known as a troop) at a zoo in the Netherlands have been exhibiting some strange behaviors, which have park guests spooked and animal experts baffled. It seems something has frightened the baboons located at the Dierenpark Emmen Zoo. Instead of their normal, social behaviors, the baboons have been highly agitated and frightened, refusing to eat and turning their backs on the thousands of visitors who have come to the park to view them, staring off in one direction, and we are not talking about the English boy band!

It is the first time zoologists and other animal experts have witnessed the animals exhibit such behavior, either in captivity or in the wild."The baboons were hysterical," says zoo spokesman Wijbren Landman. "They were not jumping around but were behaving strangely."

Several strange theories as to why the animals are acting so odd have been tossed about, including the idea that the baboons sense an approaching earthquake or other disaster. Some have even suggested the bizarre behavior is being influenced by aliens!

The baboons have gradually become less agitated over the last day and are back to eating apple wedges from their minder's buckets. They are venturing into other areas of their enclosure and are fighting and removing fleas from each other again, which are normal behaviors for the animals.

Alexis Vs. Mrs. Partridge? Joan Collins Steaming Mad over Shirley Jones New Book

 Update: Apparently what Joan wants, Joan gets! After Joan's lawyers sent the publishers of Shirley's book Simon & Schuster a nasty cease and desist order with the threat of a libel suit, the publishers have agreed to eliminate any mention of Joan in all upcoming prints of the book as well as all digital copies sold. But, no news is bad news when it comes to book publishing and publicity, as Joan very well knows. She famously had to defend herself in court in the 90s after her book publisher tried to renege on her book contract, worth almost four millions dollars. The publishers claimed the manuscript she submitted was unpublishable, but Joan won the suit and got to keep the millions she was paid in advance. Certainly, Joan has taken advice from her bestselling novelist sister, Jackie (Hollywood Wives, Lovers & Gamblers), one of the world's most famous and richest authors!

This sounds very much like one of those delectable catfights between Alexis Morelle Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan and Krystal Carrington on the ultimate 80s glamour-fest Dynasty…

It seems that former Dynasty vixen Dame Joan Collins is not-very-pleased with the former Mrs. Partridge of The Partridge Family, Academy-Award winning actress Shirley Jones. The displeasure stems from a steamy anecdote Shirley included in her bestselling memoir. In the new book, Shirley claims that the first time she met aspiring starlet Collins in the 1960s, Collins’ then-husband, the late actor Anthony Newley, suggested a four-some with Jones and her husband of the time, Jack Cassidy. “It was clear what Tony was leading up to was swinging,” Jones writes in her new book.

This has irked Ms. Collins, now 80, who calls the claims “utter rubbish”. Joan contacted her busy lawyers and had them write up a cease and desist order, demanding the book be removed from stores and online retailers and vetted to have the anecdote removed from the publication!

For her part, Shirley is not backing down, claiming the story is one-hundred percent accurate and the truth. Will there be a dramatic courtroom scene coming out of all this or will we see Joan and Shirley battling it out in the lily pond a la Dynasty? I’m sure that would definitely spikes sales of both Shirley’s memoir as well as Joan’s long list of potboiler trash!
