The weather across most of Sweden has been unseasonably cold – and it’s not going to get any better any time soon. Easter Sunday saw temperatures plummet to around a teeth-chattering -20C in the far northern Norrland.

And the Mercury is still misbehaving in the far south too. In the capital, Stockholm, Monday will see a high of 2C (and a low of -2C), with temperatures to sink as low as -4C on Tuesday and Wednesday. Gothenburg will be similarly cold this week, reaching lows of -2C, and even Malmo in the south will hit subzero temperatures on Wednesday. In the capital, Stockholm, Monday will see a high of 2C (and a low of -2C), with temperatures to sink as low as -4C on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Gothenburg will be similarly cold this week, reaching lows of -2C, and even Malmo in the south will hit subzero temperatures on Wednesday.

“A cold front is going to keep pushing through the country this week, and will even hang around at the beginning of next week,” Lovisa Andersson, meteorologist at Swedish weather agency SMHI, told the TT news agency. Southern reaches of Sweden can expect some light relief on Thursday and Friday, with temperatures expected to hit up to around 10C, she added.

India’s extreme heat wave, in pictures

Soaring temperatures have gripped parts of India in an extreme heat wave.

Lying in the shade and splashing into rivers, Indians are doing whatever they can to stay cool during a brutal heat wave that has killed more than 1,400 in the past month.

Somewhere along the line, I ran across this, and the photos comparison was so striking, that I felt it was worth a post. And recall that David Wilcock has mentioned that we would know when the cabal had been defeated when the rains returned to California. I’ve only posted 4 of the images. You may […]

Shocking! The Slave Trade Is Alive & Well in Islamic Libya As West African Migrants Sold at Open Markets. While rapes and kidnappings plague the population

slave-trade

Black Lives Matter has been busy making pilgrimages to the West Bank and touting the Palestinian “cause” but mum’s the word as African slaves are being traded in public squares throughout Islamic Libya. 

International Business Times reports that Libyans have been exploiting newly arrived migrants from Sub-Saharan Africa, hawking them in “public slave markets” to the tune of $200 (£160) and $500 (£400) a piece. 

Most of the slaves are reportedly held captive before being sold. IBT reports: 

Survivors have told the International Organization for Migration (IOM) how there are slave markets and private prisons all over Libya.

Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies, said: “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”

One survivor from Senegal spoke of how he was brought by smugglers across Niger in a bus to the southern Libyan city of Sabha, where he was due to risk a boat trip to Europe. When the middleman did not get his fee, the survivor was put up for sale along with other passengers.

He was taken to a prison where he worked without pay while the captors demanded 300,000 West African francs (about £380) before selling him on to a larger jail. Livia Manante, an IOM officer based in Niger, said migrants would be brought to a square where they were put up for sale.

Manante said: “IOM Italy has confirmed that this story is similar to many stories reported by migrants and collected at landing points in southern Italy, including the slave market reports.”

Those who did not get their ransom paid were often taken away and killed while others would die of hunger and disease in unsanitary conditions. 

IOM has helped repatriate 1,500 people back to West Africa so far this year where it is trying to inform people not to risk the journey to Libya where they face exploitation.

As a departure point for refugees trying to get to Europe, migrants arriving in Libya from sub-Saharan Africa are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of money and little in the way of documentation.

“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said. 

 Chief IOM spokesman Leonard Doyle called Libya a “torture archipelago” that awaits each West African migrant as he or she crosses the border.

“There they become commodities to be bought, sold and discarded when they have no more value.”

But you know, the real problem is that privileged black actors in the West aren’t landing enough Academy Awards nominations. 

The truth is, the black slave trade has long been practiced in the Islamic world, but you’ll never hear the Left complain about it.

Wild horse attacks alligator because nature is brutal. Also, Florida.

There are odd animal couples, and now we’re introducing odd animal enemies.

A group of people at the at Paynes Prairie State Park in Micanopy, Florida, were shocked to see a band of wild horses pick a fight with an alligator. 

After bullying the alligator out of the brush, one horse decides to stomp the gator, prompting a tense few moments as the crowd of people watched in surprise just feet away.

If you look closely, the gator can clearly be seen biting the horse as it tries to kick its head, though neither appears to be seriously injured immediately following the fight.

 

 

Another video before the beatdown shows the alligator was originally in the brush before it was bullied out to the path.

SHOCKING: Deadly Fukushima soil to be used in Japan’s public parks

Posted in 2017 with tags , , , , , on April 12, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

In an attempt to bury the reality of radioactive fallout and pretend that everything is okay, the Japanese government is now planning to redistribute hundreds of millions of cubic meters of radioactive soil from theFukushima nuclear disaster site to public parks throughout the country. Soil contaminated with radioactive cesium is currently being shipped throughout Japan and used to prop up roads and tidal banks, and it’s about to get even worse.

The Ministry of the Environment and its advisory council are planning to buy the contaminated soil directly from the Fukushima nuclear disaster site so they can hide it in future public landfill projects. This is how the Japanese government plans to clean up the radiation – dilute it underfoot and disperse it in the many communities throughout the country. Radioactive waste is about to become a permanent pollutant, slowly infecting the Japanese way of life. A University of Tokyo environmental engineering professor, Yuichi Moriguchi, estimates that there are roughly 100 million cubic meters of contaminated soil, which is enough soil to fill 80 large stadiums.

In the summer of 2016, the Japanese government began recycling contaminated soil with radioactive cesium measurements reaching 8,000 becquerels per kilograms. Tons of contaminated soil has already been mobilized to build tidal banks and national roadways. The newest rule allows this toxic soil to be used in public parks as long as it is covered by a layer of topsoil, vegetation, or concrete. Notably, Cesium-137 has a 30-year half-life and persists in soils for 200 – 300 years.

It’s hard to tell where all this radiation will end up over time. Once it’s dispersed throughout the country, it could ultimately end up in water and food sources for decades to come. After the contaminated soil is dispersed in a public works project, the Japanese government says that area residents are expected endure less than .01 mSv of radiation a year. Apparently, exposure to radiation is the new normal in Japan, and the government suddenly “knows” how much is safe on a yearly basis.

Drastic increase in the number of icebergs in transatlantic shipping lanes – The Watchers

Posted in 2017, Extreme Weather with tags , , , on April 12, 2017 by theboldcorsicanflame

Last week, we reported car and house-sized chunks of broken-up sea ice are being pounded onto the shore of St. John’s harbor in a sight locals haven’t seen since the 1980’s. Now, USCG’s International Ice Patrol reports a drastic increase in icebergs drifting in the transatlantic ship lanes.

As of April 4, 2017, 455 icebergs have drifted or been sighted south of 48°N in the transatlantic shipping lanes, according to the U.S. Coast Guard’s International Ice Patrol. On average, 83 icebergs drift south of this latitude by the end of March based on data collected between 1900 and 2016. The number of icebergs we are seeing now is usually not seen until late May or early June.

Coast Guard Cmdr. Gabrielle McGrath, who leads the ice patrol, told AP she has never seen such a drastic increase in such a short time. Adding to the danger, three icebergs were discovered outside the boundaries of the area the Coast Guard had advised mariners to avoid, she said. According to AP, McGrath is predicting a fourth consecutive “extreme ice season” with more than 600 icebergs in the shipping lanes.

“Cold temperatures and persistent, strong northerly winds caused sea-ice expansion south and east through to near 46°N,” IIP said in their 7-day Iceberg Outlook released April 5. “These conditions also brought significant numbers of icebergs into Flemish Pass. During the last week of March, three icebergs were detected outside of IIP’s published Iceberg Limit.” 

“While sea ice is forecasted to contract and recede to the north, hundreds of icebergs are expected to continue drifting the Flemish Pass expanding the Iceberg Limit southward. The Southern Iceberg Limit will reach near 42°N close to the mid-April median Iceberg Limit while the Eastern Iceberg Limit is expected to remain inside of the mid-April median over the next seven days,” IIP said.

IIP’s data records, which extend to 1900, show that nearly 500 icebergs enter the shipping lanes in an average year. However, the year-to-year variation is wide. In 1984, the busiest iceberg year in IIP’s history, 2 202 icebergs entered the shipping lanes. On the other hand, during two years (1966 and 2006) no icebergs reached the shipping lanes.

Oh, deer: Canadian man tackled by deer

It happened on April Fools’ Day, so no one believed him at first, but 25-year-old Cary McCook got run over by a deer.

McCook was dropped off by a coworker in British Columbia, Canada, on April 1 when he saw a deer running straight for him.

He had no time to react, as can be seen in the video. The deer head-butted him, and McCook fell to the ground.

His family and friends finally believed that he was taken down by the deer after he got surveillance footage of the incident from a nearby inn.

McCook is an aspiring rapper in a group named “Reka-Nation,” and he told a Canadian news network that he plans to write a rap song about his encounter.
