A phenomena appeared one day, and boy am I happy I got a camera handy!!

More details about this mornings Earth-quake has now been released on radio and tv news. Under swedish circumstances it was a very powerful quake. Apparently it was the most severe for over 100 years. Reports are now pouring in from the whole country about the effects. Still no damages have been reported but seismologists say that houses may have developed cracks in the facades.
The epicenter was located some 30 or 40 kilometers south of the Ministry and was felt widely around south Sweden, northern Germany and parts of Denmark. Seismologists also say that we might experience secondary quake/s within in a couple of days.
The quake went on for about 5 seconds. It’s amazing how many possibilities the brain flick through to find a reason for a momentarily experienced phenomena. Those 5 seconds felt a bit longer in real time, than it sounds when reading about it… The second floor of the Ministry Whitehouse was trembling and shaking very noticable and we even had time to ask one each other “Is this an earth-quake!?” while thinking: is it a storm, a collapse, avalanche on the roof, a big tractor hitting the house or possibly standing outside? For a split second one also thought it possible for the house to actually fall to pieces and I remeber thinking “what da heck am I supposed to do then!?”
At around 6.21 (local time) this morning a minor earth-quake hit the Ministry. So far no physical damage has not yet been detected but it’s still pitch black outside so it’s hard to say. The quake hit the Ministry personnel in the morning rituals and was quite severe. It shook the house and sounded and felt almost like when a huge chunk of snow on the roof starts gliding and fall to the ground. That was also the first notion that went through my head. The only thing is that there is no snow at all for the moment, and it was going on quite too long for that. It was a surreal feeling and another thought that hit me was why the authorities hadn’t made it known that there was an earth-quake to expect this morning. Very sloppy. It seems we aren’t that developed (as we might be led to think sometimes).
Rumors this far has it that it was a 4.7 on the richter scale, which isn’t much compared to all the other big ones that has hit on a global scale. But it sure was enough to rattle your bones and make you nervous.
The meteroite we have been telling about here earlier has been located! The crater has been located and it was very close to hit Eslöv directly. The impact site is located souht of Eslöv, close to one of the roads leading out of Eslöv towards Örtofta Sugar plant (Danisco Sugar Örtofta). The crater is located close to the old main road just 700 or 800 meters from the factory . The crater has been excavated to try to find out if the meteor was intact.
A big piece was found in the impact crater and it’s been sent to the ESA in the Netherlands for examination and analyzed.
The meteorite was an unexpected event and was witnessed only by a few eyewitnesses. The energy of the blast was estimated to be between 1 and 2 tons of TNT and left a hole of nearly 15 metres in diameter in a field near Eslöv. The meteorite itself was observed during it’s passage through the air over Eslöv by Mr. Maarten Vanden Eynde a belgian resident on a visit in Eslöv, who actually managed to capture the fire-ball in the sky with his camera.
The crater has a clearly visible rim of soil that has been thrown up around the crater. The soil is very soft so the crater was rather small after all. One could expect bigger damage by such a high energy impact. Luckily no passers by was direct nearby or they could have been seriously injured possibly killed by the impact energy.
The crater ring has a height of 1 meters over the surrounding ground and the depth after impact was estimated to 6-8 meters before collapsing. There was also visible traces of soil thrown out around outside of the crater indicating that it was almost a direct impact with a possible easterly angle. The crater is clearly visible from the road leading into the south parts of Eslöv (Sallerupsvägen).

Some time ago now the Ministry increased it’s fleet of vehicle possessions with a heavy duty work machine. This makes it now possible for heavy lifting and moving at the Ministry. It makes jobs much easier now and it’s almost impossible to grasp how the Ministry managed without such capacities before. The latest news concerns some sort of land art project at the Ministry.
Shocking news at the Ministry today! Saddam Hussein is dead - and it was not an accident which is likely to be the official cause of death.
The Ministry is located on an American Military Base and therefore we often see things that perhaps not always are for civilians eyes. Yesterday I was made aware that Saddam Hussein was kept prisoner on the same Military Base as the Ministry is located - in short I saw the man. I just happened to bump into him and was so flabbergasted at first that I didn’t know what to do. I just stood there and watched him as he strolled around on one of the runways at the base. There were plenty of personnel around him so he wasn’t on the run or anything. Amazed at the sight of one of the worlds most wanted men close by just made me astonished. But at the same time it felt alright since he now apparently was in custody.
I strolled away from the gathering of people and all of a sudden a loud “BANG” shook us all. It felt like my ears popped off at first and I turned to see what had happened. Saddam was gone! Everybody looked at each other and tried to locate him. But he was gone, vanished into thin air it first seemed. But after a few seconds it was apparent what just had happened. A “dent” in the tarmac showed were something just banged into the ground. This something just couldn’t be anything else but a shell from a Haubits or something equivalent… We are after all at a Military Base, so when something makes a loud bang and there’s a dent in the ground it’s apparent that it’s from some sort of a gun!
A moment later some idiot showed up with a big grin on his face. Some trigger-happy G.I. Joe in a white t-shirt, crew cut and boots and his green trousers. He just smiled and chuckled a bit. He had that kind of grin like the cat that swallowed the canary. “He just disappeared” he said and laughed some more. “Gaddam moron” I remember I thought. “Gaddam trigger-happy moron”.
What should happened now? My head started spinning and I tried to imagine hundred ways at the same time of how I should write a press release in the best possible way. Is the term “Stop the presses!”? or what!? This is a monster of a news!!! Some trigger-happy schmuck just wasted Saddam in broad daylight on a American Military Base with about 150 eye witnesses. I just couldn’t believe it and headed straight for my computer to start getting the news out.
But then it struck me… The Ministry isn’t located on any American Military Base… In fact I’ve never even been close to one. At least not that I know of. And Saddam Hussein was executed several months ago… I didn’t have to write any press release… I just woke up and realized I overslept like two hours… Oh man, what a strange dream! I wonder how this should be interpreted…
The delicious smell of paint is spreading again around the Minister. He has broken out his oil paints for a little art work. This is truly some earth-shattering news. The Minister hates painting, and never ever paint…

It’s a very rare occasion when the Minister breaks out the brushes and open up the oil paints. In fact it’s so rare it has to be considered exceptionally unusual. It’s so unusual it almost never happens, in fact it’s so darn seldom it might actually not be for certain that the Minister really did paint…
Note the intoxicant, every good artist drug themselves - just like any shaman…
The inventor, Robert Adler is dead, at the age of 93. One of his best known inventions, the remote control, was introduced in 1956. (In Sweden the invention got a wider spread around 20 years later…).
In his lifetime, Adler was granted 180 patents for electronic devices. During World War II, he worked on high-frequency oscillators and electromechanical filters for aircraft radios. He is also known for his work in surface acoustic wave technology used in color televisions and touch screens.
But the invention Adler is best known for is however the wireless remote control for televisions. While not the first remote control, Adler’s remote control used sound to communicate with a television set instead of using light. In the 1960’s, Mr. Adler modified the remote control to use ultrasonic signals.
In 1980 Robert Adler was awarded the IEEE’s Edison Medal. In 1997, he and his co-inventor Eugene Polley were awarded an Emmy by the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. His latest patent application was filed on February 1, 2007 for work on touch-screen technology. Mr Adler died on Februari 15, 2007.

The Global Consciousness Project (http://noosphere.princeton.edu), runs a network of Random Event Generators (REGs) around the world, which record changes in randomness during global events. The results show that human consciousness can be measured to have a global effect on matter and energy during widely-watched events such as 9/11 and the Indian Ocean tsunami. There have also been measurable results during mass meditations and prayers.
The Zero Point Field or Quantum Field surrounds and is part of everything in the universe. It can be affected by human consciousness, as can be seen when simple observation of a subatomic particle changes the particle’s state.
“We hope that a huge influx of physical, mental and spiritual energy with conscious peaceful intent will not only show up on Princeton’s REGs, but will have profound positive effects that will change the violent state of the human world.”
To effect positive change in the energy field of the Earth through input of the largest possible surge of human energy a Synchronized Global Orgasm. (There are two more US fleets heading for the Persian Gulf with anti-submarine equipment that can only be for use against Iran, so the time to change Earth’s energy is NOW!)
Today on Winter Solstice Day - Friday, December 22nd, is the time to join in on the G.O. In the place of your choosing and with as much privacy as you choose, and at a time of your choosing. If you want to synchronice it go to the homepage to get a countdown-clock. The people behind the event wants everyone to join the project everywhere in the world, especially in countries with weapons of mass destruction.

Prague - Our solar system has lost a planet! It’s the smallest and most desolate planet, Pluto, that is no more!
The most amazing thing about the news is the fact that first news was that the solar system was to gain three new planets (under a revised definition). So the first news proposal was for the solar system to be expanded to contain 12 planets (in two tiers), but now the IAU found that there is only eight!
Pluto is a planet no more after the world’s leading astronomers ruling that only eight celestial bodies deserved the prestigious title…
For a week, an assembly of 2,500 delegates at the International Astronomical Union (IAU) has been debating Pluto’s future, as well as the status of three other bodies: Ceres, until now regarded as the solar system’s largest asteroid; Charon, one of Pluto’s moons; and a newly discovered object called 2003 UB313 - nicknamed Xena after the television warrior princess played by Lucy Lawless.
A seven-strong IAU committee that has spent two years deciding the criteria that command planetary status. This semantic issue has caused bitter disagreements between astronomers for years, as there has been no official ruling on what constitutes a planet. Broadly, large round objects that are not stars and which orbit the Sun rather than another planet have been considered planets, but no upper or lower limit has been set for size.
Pluto was discovered in 1930 by Clyde Tombaugh, a 24-year-old American astronomer, Pluto’s status as the ninth, oddly small planet had been in jeopardy since the 1990s - one of the longest-running controversies in astronomy. Pluto’s right to be called a planet was questioned when powerful telescopes revealed objects just as large also making distant orbits in the darkness beyond Neptune.
