Gene That Controls the Birth of Neurons Discovered - Scientists at A*STAR’s Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) have discovered an unusual gene that controls the generation of neurons. This important finding is crucial in understanding serious diseases of the brain such as Alzheimer’s disease, the researchers say.

 

Mind Meld? Scientist Uses His Brain to Control Another Guy’s Finger - The world of mind-control zombie armies just got a little closer: Scientists say they’ve hooked up one person’s brain to the Internet, to control the finger of another person playing a video game.

 

Tech Bringing Immortality Closer, Google Expert Says - “The life expectancy was 20 years of age, 1,000 years ago. … We doubled it in 200 years. This will go into high gear within 10 to 20 years from now—probably less than 15, we will be reaching that tipping point where we add more time than has gone by because of scientific progress,” said Ray Kurzweil. “Somewhere between 10 and 20 years, there is going to be tremendous transformation of health and medicine.”

 

Scientists Develop an Advanced Biological Computer - Technion scientists developed and constructed a molecular transducer, which is an advanced computing machine. This molecular computer was built entirely of biomolecules, such as DNA and enzymes that can manipulate genetic codes. This unprecedented device can compute iteratively, namely, it uses the output as a new input for subsequent computations.
Tiny Robot Flies Like A Fly - A robot as small as a housefly has managed the delicate task of flying and hovering the way the actual insects do. “This is a major engineering breakthrough, 15 years in the making,” says electrical engineer Ronald Fearing, who works on robotic flies at the University of California, Berkeley. The device uses layers of ultrathin materials that can make its wings flap 120 times a second, which is on a par with a housefly’s flapping rate. This “required tremendous innovation in design and fabrication techniques,” he adds.
Scientists Create Hybrid Flu That Can Go Airborne - As the world is transfixed by a new H7N9 bird flu virus spreading through China, a study reminds us that a different avian influenza—H5N1—still poses a pandemic threat. A team of scientists in China has created hybrid viruses by mixing genes from H5N1 and the H1N1 strain behind the 2009 swine flu pandemic, and showed that some of the hybrids can spread through the air between guinea pigs. The results are published in Science1.
Brain-Computer Interfaces Inch Closer To Mainstream - “Some crude brain-reading products already exist, letting people play easy games or move a mouse around a screen.” But the products commercially available today will soon look archaic. “To really be able to understand what is going on with the brain today you need to surgically implant an array of sensors into the brain,” said John Donoghue, a neuroscientist and director of the Brown Institute for Brain Science.
Scientists Print Self-Assembling “Living Tissue” - Researchers have created networks of water droplets that mimic some properties of cells in biological tissues. Using a three-dimensional printer, a team at the University of Oxford, UK, assembled tiny water droplets into a jelly-like material that can flex like a muscle and transmit electric signals like chains of neurons.

Description: 

What does it mean to be human? Philosophers, theologians, sociologists and psychologists have attempted to understand the nature of mankind for ages. Their conclusions often contradict each other which lead to confusion rather than clarification. Clearly Man is a very complicated social being. The Bible tells us that man is “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
  • How do we understand our makeup and does it make a difference?
  • What is the meaning of being “created in the image of God?”
  • What causes our natural responses and can we change this behaviour?

Join Ron Matsen from the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of our “Human Nature” and gives insight into the architecture and accountability of all mankind.

Beginning of Wisdom

by

 Dr. Chuck Missler

“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:10

But how do we balance the awesome majesty due to the Creator and Ruler of the universe with the gracious family intimacy that is now available to us through the completed work of Christ?

What does His Holiness demand of us, personally?

What are the hazards of failing to render the Almighty His due, while availing ourselves the riches committed to us of the precious promises in His Word?

How do we deal with these paramount issues facing us daily in practical challenges?

Chuck Missler grapples with these wildly misunderstood tensions with down-to-earth frankness and Biblically-based candor.

Description

One of the last instructions given by Jesus to the Church was, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” (Mark 16:15)

The fact is most Christians don’t know how to share their faith effectively. Sadly, many of the people they know in the world today are wandering around, lost and without hope, having never heard the wonderful Message of Reconciliation.

How would you answer the question, “What must I do to be saved?”

What are the essential facts, demands and promises of the Gospel?

Why are we told to evangelize?

Join Ron Matsen in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of “The Gospel – The Message of Reconciliation” and gives practical insight into how to share the essential doctrines of salvation.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban attends the first UNEA in NairobiBy David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon flew to Haiti on Monday to discuss efforts to alleviate a cholera epidemic that has killed thousands and has been linked to the U.N.'s own peacekeepers. Ban is seeking support for a $2.2 billion, 10-year cholera-elimination campaign that he launched in December 2012 with the presidents of Haiti and the neighboring Dominican Republic. The United Nations has so far not accepted responsibility for the outbreak that has killed 8,500 people and infected more than 700,000 since October 2010, despite evidence that it was brought to Haiti by Nepalese peacekeepers stationed near a major river.

People cross the road in the rain at Times Square in New YorkBy Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Back pain is no more likely to strike on cold, rainy days than in fair weather, according to a new study from Australia. Temperature, humidity, wind direction, precipitation and air pressure were not linked to the onset of lower back pain among close to 1,000 patients, researchers found. Higher wind speeds were tied to back pain, but they say the effect was small and wouldn’t be noticeable to the average person. “There are many factors believed to trigger an episode of low back pain,” said Dr. Daniel Steffens, the study’s lead author from the George Institute for Global Health at the University of Sydney.
 
 

Young Hispanic men face rising testicular cancer rates

By Will Boggs MD NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Testicular cancer rates are increasing more than three percent per year among young Hispanic men, at a time when rates among non-Hispanic white men are remaining steady, according to a new study. The number of new testicular cancers diagnosed each year ranges from 1.4 for every 100,000 black men to 6.6 per 100,000 white men, with rates for Hispanic men falling in between, at about 4.7 cases per 100,000 men per year. Dr. Rebecca H. Johnson and colleagues at the University of Washington in Seattle used a large database from the National Cancer Institute to examine trends in testicular cancer rates in Hispanic and non-Hispanic adolescents and young adults over the past two decades. What they found surprised them: while testicular cancer rates increased by about 3.8 percent per year among Hispanic white men over the most recent 10 years, rates didn’t change at all among non-Hispanic white men.
 

German database study hints diabetes drug cuts Alzheimer's risk

A large German study is the latest clinical trial to suggest that a cheap generic treatment for diabetes can stave off symptoms of Alzheimer's disease, although conclusive proof from a more formal trial could be about five years away. Earlier studies have suggested that people and animals given the widely used pill for type-2 diabetes, called pioglitazone, were less likely to develop Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. They tracked a database of about 146,000 patients age 60 and older who initially did not have evidence of dementia. The analysis showed that 13,841 subjects eventually developed dementia, and that for those taking pioglitazone the risk of dementia was significantly reduced with each additional three months the drug was prescribed.

Pharmaceutical companies are looking to combination therapy to yield better results and drug cocktails are expected to be crucial as oncologists seek to block cancer on multiple fronts. Cobimetinib, which is being developed in collaboration with Exelixis Inc, is designed to be used with another Roche drug called Zelboraf for patients with tumors that have a mutation in a gene known as BRAF that allows melanoma cells to grow.
 
 

6 Surprising Asthma Triggers

6 Surprising Asthma TriggersChances are, you know someone with asthma -- after all, about one in 12 people in the U.S. has the condition. Having asthma means to have airways that are inflamed, which makes them particularly sensitive to substances ranging from pollution to dust. Exposure to an asthma trigger can cause the narrowing and swelling of the airways, as well as increased production of mucus, making it very difficult to breathe. When these asthma symptoms are particularly intense, that’s called an asthma attack — and knowing what exactly triggers these attacks is vital for people with the respiratory condition.
 
 

U.S. anthrax probe reveals new bird flu mishap, widespread safety lapses

 
‎12 ‎July ‎2014, ‏‎01:40:00 AMGo to full article
The Centers for Disease Control sign is seen at its main facility in AtlantaFederal health officials on Friday disclosed a new safety breach at a high-security U.S. government laboratory involving dangerous avian flu, a lapse that came to light as they investigated the potential exposure of researchers to live anthrax bacteria. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said an internal probe found multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies led to the potential exposure of more than 80 lab workers to live anthrax at its Atlanta campus last month. Investigators also discovered a previously unreported incident: Workers at a separate high-security CDC influenza lab sent samples containing a dangerous strain of bird flu to counterparts at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in March. Mishandling avian flu could have far graver consequences than anthrax does, though no one has been found to have been infected in either case.

Viles in a laboratory wait to be tested in College Park, Maryland on September 15, 2011A US government laboratory mistakenly mixed a common flu strain with a dangerous and deadly type of bird flu and shipped it to another lab, authorities said Friday. The latest news followed admissions of mishandled anthrax and forgotten smallpox vials at separate US government labs, and raised new concerns about the safety of dangerous agents which could be used as bioterror weapons. No one was endangered by the mixed flu strain, said Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Tom Frieden, who nevertheless said he was "astonished" that protocols could have been violated in that way. "Everything we have looked at strongly suggests that there was no exposure of anyone to influenza," said Frieden at a press briefing.

By Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York-based health insurance company has agreed to reimburse members up to $31 million for previously denied mental health and substance abuse claims, the state attorney general said on Wednesday. As part of a lawsuit settlement, EmblemHealth also will pay a $1.2 million fine for scrutinizing its members' mental health and substance abuse claims more than medical or surgical claims, in violation of local and federal laws, Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said in a statement. "Insurers must comply with the laws – and they must treat people with mental health and substance abuse conditions as they do those with medical conditions," Schneiderman said.
 

Asthma inhaler lodged in chest highlights importance of warning labels

 
‎09 ‎July ‎2014, ‏‎10:32:03 PMGo to full article
By Krystnell Storr NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A new case report from France offers a reminder of why people who use medical devices like asthma inhalers should take warnings on the product label seriously. Dr. Stanislas Ledochowski of the Hospitalier Universitaire Lyons Sud, who examined the man, told Reuters Health, “Fortunately, it is to be considered as an exceptional event, and since it was the only described case in the medical literature, we thought describing such an occurrence could be of medical interest.” Inhalers, a portable form of nebulizer, turn liquid medication into a fine mist, which is the fastest way for people with asthma or other lung conditions to dose themselves during an attack. The National Institutes of Health also warns that albuterol should be kept out of the reach of children, stored at room temperature and kept in its foil pouch until needed. Ledochowski and his coauthors describe in the journal Surgery what they found when they went in to remove the foreign object.

By Kathryn Doyle NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Black and Asian adults may be at risk for developing diabetes at a lower weight than whites, according to a new study. Based on the findings, researchers suggest the definition of obesity should be different for different populations, in order to trigger diabetes interventions in a timely manner. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) defines overweight as a BMI of 25 to 29.9 and obesity as a BMI of 30 and above. Institutions like the WHO and CDC have yet to adopt ethnicity-specific BMI cutoffs for overweight and obesity.
 

Doctors should do more to encourage flu shots during pregnancy: study

 
‎09 ‎July ‎2014, ‏‎07:04:15 PMGo to full article
By Ronnie Cohen NEW YORK - (Reuters Health) - Most doctors do not recommend flu shots to their pregnant patients, who are more likely to develop serious complications if they do get the flu, according to a new report. In the review of past studies, researchers also found that pregnant women had concerns about the safety of the flu vaccine and tended to underestimate the risk that the virus posed to themselves and their fetus.   “The research is clear that healthcare providers are not providing advice to pregnant women about the importance and benefits of getting vaccinated,” Marie Tarrant told Reuters Health in an email. She worked on the study at Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine at the University of Hong Kong.   “In addition, they are not making influenza vaccine available to their pregnant clients,” she said. “By their silence, they are sending a message that influenza vaccine is actually not that important.” One study found pregnant women were five times as likely to be hospitalized with the flu as other women, Tarrant said.   Flu vaccines given to pregnant women not only immunize them but protect their infants against the flu until they are six months old, the researchers write in the journal Vaccine.   The World Health Organization recently identified pregnant women as the highest priority group to receive seasonal flu vaccines.
 

Sunshine vitamin D boosts survival chances in bowel cancer: study

 
‎09 ‎July ‎2014, ‏‎01:34:11 PMGo to full article
Bowel cancer patients with high levels of vitamin D in their blood are more likely to survive the disease, according to research published on Wednesday. Scientists who studied almost 1,600 patients after surgery for bowel cancer found those with the highest levels of vitamin D have half the risk of dying of the disease compared with those with the lowest levels. The study is the first to correlate the long-term survival prospects of bowel cancer patients after diagnosis with total blood levels of vitamin D. Vitamin D, sometimes known as the "sunshine vitamin", is made in the body when the skin is exposed to sunlight and is found in foods such as fish liver oil, eggs and fatty fish such as salmon, herring and mackerel. Some observational studies have also suggested a link between low levels of vitamin D and greater risks of many acute and chronic diseases.

A test to diagnose Alzheimer's early on would allow researchers to identify patients who could take part in trials to develop new treatments to halt the condition.British scientists on Monday announced a major step forward in developing a blood test that could predict the onset of Alzheimer's, potentially helping the search for a cure. Researchers identified blood proteins that appear in patients subsequently diagnosed with the brain-wasting disease, the most common form of dementia. "Many of our drug trials fail because by the time patients are given the drugs, the brain has already been too severely affected," said Oxford University neuroscience professor Simon Lovestone, who led the study at King's College London.

An experiment changing how U.S. cancer doctors are compensated cut healthcare costs by a third, with no discernible decline in patient health, according to a three-year study by insurer UnitedHealth Group Inc and five medical oncology groups. Cancer treatment is one of the most expensive and fastest growing categories of care in the United States. Oncologists and insurers have been devising new incentives for doctors to improve patient care while lowering costs. In the latest experiment, UnitedHealth, the largest U.S. health insurer, gave participating doctors an upfront payment to cover a patient's full course of treatment, rather than reimburse them for each individual medical service such as chemotherapy.

FDA reviewers assess uterine surgical method tied to rare cancer

(Reuters) - A uterine surgical technique that has been linked with the spread of a rare type of cancer poses a serious concern to regulators that will be addressed this week by an advisory committee to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In preparatory documents posted on the agency's website on Tuesday, FDA reviewers said laparoscopic power morcellator devices, which are used to treat uterine fibroids, allow for less invasive surgeries, shorter recovery time and fewer wound site infections. Risks, however, include injury to local tissues and organs and, most importantly, the spread of unsuspected malignant uterine tissue to places outside the uterus. Power morcellators are used to slice fibroid and uterine tissue into small pieces that can be removed through a small opening during surgery.

A staff member at the Alzheimer Society of Sudbury-Manitoulin leads seniors in a class called Ageless Grace. A new U.S. pact aims to accelerate genetic research that could improve treatment of Alzheimer's and three other diseases.By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - British scientists have identified a set of 10 proteins in the blood that can predict the onset of Alzheimer's and call this an important step towards developing a test for the incurable brain-wasting disease. Such a test could initially be used to select patients for clinical trials of experimental treatments being developed to try to halt progression of Alzheimer's, the researchers said, and may one day move into routine use in doctors' clinics. "Alzheimer's begins to affect the brain many years before patients are diagnosed (and) many of our drug trials fail because by the time patients are given the drugs the brain has already been too severely affected," said Simon Lovestone of Oxford University, who led this work from King's College London. "A simple blood test could help us identify patients at a much earlier stage to take part in new trials and hopefully develop treatments," he said.

New York is the latest US state to allow medical marijuana, shown here is a cannabis farmer's market in California where it is already legalGovernor Andrew Cuomo on Monday signed a bill making New York the 23rd US state to legalize marijuana for medical use. The state's law requires a medical prescription for marijuana and limits its use to help treating patients with cancer, HIV, Lou Gehrig's disease, Parkinson's, epilepsy and a few other illnesses. Patients also must agree to sign up for the medical marijuana program. "New York State has a proud history of being in the forefront of many advances in medicine," Cuomo said.

By Krystnell Storr NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - People with disabilities are less likely to get screened for colon and rectal cancer if they live in rural areas, according to a new study. Researchers said that means rural residents with disabilities may be at higher risk of getting diagnosed with late-stage cancer than their urban counterparts. Rural areas have fewer healthcare providers, especially specialists, and people may have to travel a long way to get colorectal cancer screening,” said Willi Horner-Johnson, the study's lead author from Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. “But I have also been told by colleagues living in rural areas that there is kind of a ‘tough it out’ mindset.

Study finds little benefit, some harm from steroid shots for back pain

By Gene Emery NEW YORK (Reuters) - Steroid injections widely used to treat back pain offer little or no real benefit, according to a new study of 400 patients. Those who received the drug mixed with the painkiller lidocaine scored no better on measures of disability and leg pain after six weeks than patients in a control group who received lidocaine injection alone. "These (injections) are so commonly used and the steroids do pose an added risk to patients without much benefit," the study’s lead author Dr. Janna Friedly of the University of Washington in Seattle told Reuters Health. "I do hope patients and their doctors will be more cautious about using them” for spinal stenosis, she said.

The research on the 2009 H1N1 virus at a high-security lab at the University of Wisconsin, Madison has not yet been published, but was first made public July 1 by the Independent newspaper in London. The article described virologist Yoshihiro Kawaoka, as "controversial" and said "some scientists who are aware of (the experiment) are horrified." Kawaoka confirmed to AFP that he has been able to make changes in a particular protein that would enable the 2009 H1N1 virus to escape immune protection.

By Andrew M. Seaman NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Older people who have trouble getting around because of poor blood flow to their legs may be able to walk a little longer and farther after eating dark chocolate, according to a new small Italian study. People with peripheral artery disease (PAD) who ate a dark chocolate bar were able to slightly increase the time and distance they walked a couple of hours later, compared to people who ate milk chocolate, researchers found. “Nutrients are key components of health and disease,” said Dr. Lorenzo Loffredo, the study’s lead author from Sapienza University in Rome. He and his colleagues write in the Journal of the American Heart Association that compounds known at polyphenols, which are much more plentiful in dark chocolate than milk chocolate, may have something to do with the improved performance.

Experimental Ebola drugs should be tried in Africa, disease expert says

By Kate Kelland LONDON, (Reuters) - People at high risk of dying in West Africa's Ebola outbreak should be offered experimental medicines to see if they work, despite the drugs being not fully tested, the head of an influential global health charity said. Jeremy Farrar, a professor of tropical medicine and director of The Wellcome Trust charity, said Ebola's spread in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia is "out of control" and global health authorities should rethink the approach to potential treatments. West Africa is battling its deadliest outbreak of Ebola, with 467 people killed so far by a disease that causes fever, vomiting, bleeding and diarrhoea, and can kill between 50 and 90 percent of those it infects. Farrar pointed to several experimental drugs and vaccines in development as potential treatments or preventative measures against Ebola, and questioned why they were not being tested in a situation where people at high risk might benefit.

The government said on Monday it had introduced an amendment to its social security budget bill that would allow doctors to use Avastin as a treatment for age-related macular degeneration (AMD)- a leading cause of blindness among the elderly. The initiator of the measure, Socialist lawmaker Gerard Bapt, argues that encouraging the use of the drug, which costs 30 times less than Lucentis, could bring the state annual savings of at least 200 million euros ($273 million).

The Economy

Toward a New World Monetary Order

by David McAlvany

 

Can you imagine a world that has rejected the dollar? The rest of the world can. What if the U.S. dollar lost its monopoly status in world trade?

The sons of Issachar were notable for two things: 1) Understanding the times and 2) Knowing what Israel should do. In essence these men were described as perspicacious. Just as wisdom is a step beyond knowledge, perspicacity is a step beyond wisdom. It is the application of wisdom.

While these men were learned, they were also men of action. What a powerful combination. These were men who could make an appraisal of current circumstance and put in motion a plan of action informed by the times in which they lived.

As you read the context of 1 Chronicles 11 and 12, you’ll see the gathering of loyal warriors to support David as king. Others were described as being the equal on the battlefield of 100 or even 1,000 men. The sons of Issachar were thoughtful and strategic. Analysis paralysis would not have been a problem for them. Nor were they merely information junkies.

Understanding the Economic Times

The segue to our current economic challenges is not as rough at it seems on the surface. Do you understand the times? What knowledge do you possess that informs your course of action?

In order that we might think clearly and plan strategically, we divide the world into three spheres 1) the moral/spiritual, 2) the social/political and 3) the monetary/economic. We turn our attention to the latter because so much is presently at stake, and in this sphere there are many grand delusions among believers and non-believers alike.

Can you imagine a world that has rejected the dollar? The rest of the world can. What if the U.S. dollar lost its monopoly status in world trade? As you read this, a number of our trade partners are assuming that this outcome is inevitable. The storyline has been many decades in the making, but is now accelerating rapidly. If you live in the U.S., trade internationally in U.S. dollars, or have the majority of your assets denominated in dollars, you should pay careful attention. The money system we’ve known is being turned upside down. Do you understand the issues at stake? Are you ready for the painful implications of change?

Even after the failure in the early ’70s of the post-WWII Bretton Woods agreement, the U.S. dollar has remained the de facto currency of the world. Under Bretton Woods, foreign currencies were fixed in relation to the dollar, and the dollar was fixed to gold at $35 per ounce. The monetary system had a few disciplines that were holdovers from the pre-WWI gold standard. The disciplines were critical for global acceptance and the shoring up of confidence.

Disconnecting the Dollar

President Nixon removed the primary pillar of stability (gold) from the Bretton Woods monetary system less than 30 years after that system began. By March of 1973, European countries started striking out on their own, with six of them tying their currencies together and “floating” them against the dollar. In a matter of 24 months, the world had lost gold as a monetary stabilizer and the U.S. dollar had lost a control relationship with other currencies that were no longer pegged to it.

This was the birthing process for our current floating monetary (non) system. Today there are no absolute measures of value in this floating system—only relative relationships. In spite of these changes, world trade centers now, as then, insist on the settling of invoices in U.S. dollars. This forces financial institutions all over the world to hold dollars on account to facilitate business. But even this practice is changing, creating considerable downside risk for the dollar—the foundation of nearly every American’s assets.

A Post-Dollar World?

With no substitute to take its place, dollar dominance has been presumed by financial experts and money managers. How much longer can we assume that the dollar will keep its monopoly status? The rest of the world has grown agitated and begun to reengineer its financial markets for a post-dollar world. Trade agreements that eliminate the dollar as the intermediary currency have proliferated in recent years. The factors involved in this monetary sea change are: 1) the rise of the euro, 2) the growth of emerging market players, and 3) the shift in behavior among some of our primary creditors. In concert, these factors portend a new global monetary system.

The Euro

The European Union as a quasi-political and economic project was envisioned in the 1950s and ’60s, and finally emerged in the ’80s under the influence of Jacques Delors and a number of other European socialists. The monetary unit we call the euro was launched in 1999. After an initial bout of weakness, it climbed 30–40% as it gained in global acceptance (I well remember the appreciation in personally held euro-denominated German bonds).

Since its launch, the currency has been bought as a reserve asset by central banks all over the world. It now comprises 24% of all central bank holdings.

This development has progressed at the expense of the dollar, and has coincided with a 30% decline in the U.S. dollar’s purchasing power. In spite of the obstacles to, if not impossibility of, political and fiscal union, the European monetary unit has marched ahead with considerable stability and global support. The world is in search of dollar alternatives and is not being easily dissuaded from its choice of the euro as a viable alternative—the first in decades. Thus, we have a pivotal shift away from U.S. dollars by the central banks of the world.

Pressure from Emerging Markets

Emerging markets have enjoyed considerable economic progress over the past 30 years. As the West has over-consumed, the rest of the world has over-produced, providing the goods we desire at cheaper and cheaper cost. Over several decades, this abundance of consumer goods has grown the bank accounts of emerging market entrepreneurs and governments via an increase in trade. The IMF now estimates that emerging markets will overtake advanced economies as a percentage of global GDP this year!

Why is this critical? The rest of the world has a more forceful presence than ever before. On a collective basis, the emerging markets are independently creating more efficient ways of trading with each other, including the direct settlement of transactions and invoices without U.S. dollars. The modern world is gaining autonomy from the U.S. that it hasn’t known in the post-WWII era.

This marginalizes the U.S. dollar, both as a reserve asset for central bankers and as a currency used for free trade settlement. In short, we have the makings of a currency coup d’état.

The East’s Influence

China figures into the equation on several counts. Not only have we witnessed the meteoric rise of the Chinese economy since Deng Xiaoping’s reforms in the late 1970s, we’ve also seen China become our number one creditor. China has our paper (U.S. Treasuries that it has purchased), Japan holds our paper, and the Middle East holds our paper—(strangely, the Federal Reserve is now an enormous holder of Treasury IOUs).

Our dependency on these creditors is critical. Not only must they remain content with current holdings of Treasuries, but we need them to continue purchasing to fund our budget deficit. Note that January Treasury data (TIC report) shows China liquidating close to $50 billion in Treasuries. That is a problem that will push the dollar lower and raise interest rates. The Japanese are now running trade deficits and lack the surplus dollars to purchase Treasuries.

And lastly, we have a decline in U.S. demand for Middle East oil as new fields have been exploited in North America. Our Middle East Treasury buyers are consequently receiving fewer petro dollars that can be fed back into the dollar recycling-Treasury purchasing pipeline.

The Dollar’s Decline

From this evidence, we conclude that the monetary system we’ve lived with since the ’70s is rapidly falling apart. The dollar is vulnerable to rapid devaluation, and the Treasury market may be subject to a rapid rise in rates. The implications are very straightforward.

With a currency in decline, the price of goods and services moves up and potentially out of reach for the average consumer.

Not only is devaluation harmful to consumers, leading to a tremendous amount of civil unrest and social decay, but investors and savers are equally in harm’s way. Dollar-denominated assets, which may include bank deposits, stocks, bonds, and real estate, can dramatically drop in value. We witnessed Argentine assets selling for pennies on the dollar in 2001 during that nation’s currency crisis, and the process is repeating as I write.

The U.S. is very different than Argentina, but one of the critical distinctions between us—the U.S. dollar being the reserve currency of the world—is being dismantled in real time. It would not surprise us to witness an entire generation of U.S. savers wiped out over the next three to five years.

King David asks, “If the foundations be destroyed, what will the righteous do?” This represents a challenge to our generation and to those of like mind with the sons of Issachar. Not only must we appraise the times in which we live, but we must know what to do. I would encourage you to think strategically and act decisively.

The Lord commands us to “be strong and courageous.” To do so, we must step beyond knowledge and wisdom to strategic and wise action.

Price R 499.00

 

There are many diverse anticipations concerning the Coming World Leader, commonly referred to as “The Antichrist.” This study will explore the Biblical descriptions with the specific expectations of the globalists, Islam, the Vatican, Freemasonry, and others.
• Will he be a Nephilim?
• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an “alien” visitor?
• Will he be a resurrection of Nimrod? Is his DNA a factor?
• What are the expectations of transhumanist technologists in this regard?
Clearly, the Bible has much more to illuminate this issue far beyond the popular conceptions; and yet the composite perspective will astonish most. Furthermore, is there a climactic cosmic deception being prepared that, if it were possible, “it would deceive the very elect”? Jesus commanded us, “Be not deceived.” But, how?
How close are these events to our current horizon?
Join Dr. Chuck Missler and Ron Matsen in an intensive summary of some of the Strategic Trends that will impact all of us.

DVD

by Dr. Chuck Missler

 

Description

Volumes 1 & 2 of this series explored the finite limits and boundaries of our physical reality. After probing the limits of both the Macrocosm and the Microcosm, we discovered that our reality is but a shadow of larger reality, the Metacosm, a domain of extra-dimensional transfers and other paradoxical phenomena.

 

Volume 3 explores the contradictory behavior of UFOs and other demonic deceptions characteristic of the End Times. Explore these topics in more detail in either this two-hour briefing, Angels Vol 3: The Denizens of the Metacosm or our six-hour extensive study, Expectations of the Antichrist.

 

 

• Are they real?

• Why do UFOs enjoy a military classification higher than our most sensitive weapons systems?

• Why are the events which occurred in Roswell New Mexico still classified after 66 years?

• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an Alien Visitor?

• How should a Christian deal with the occurrences of Alien abductions?

• Jesus admonished us to “Be not deceived.” How?

• How do we prepare for the deception which, “if it were possible, would deceive the very elect”?

 

Join Dr. Chuck Missler in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand, exploring the misinformation, (and deliberate disinformation) about the various “denizens of the Metacosm” and other insights of the invisible war unfolding on our near horizon.

THE BOOK

Book

While Forbidden Gates includes fresh insights for traditional, tried and true methods of overcoming darkness, it also unveils for the first time how breakthrough advances in science, technology, and philosophy—including cybernetics, bio-engineering, nanotechnology, machine intelligence, synthetic biology, and transhumanism—will combine to create mind-boggling game-changes to everything you have ever known about spiritual warfare.

In recent years, astonishing technological developments have pushed the frontiers of humanity toward far-reaching morphological transformation that promises in the very near future to redefine what it means to be human. An international, intellectual and fast-growing cultural movement known as transhumanism intends the use of genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence and nanotechnology (GRIN technologies) as tools that will radically redesign our minds, our memories, our physiology, our offspring, and even perhaps, as Joel Garreau in his bestselling book Radical Evolution claims, our very souls. The technological, cultural, and metaphysical shift now under way unapologetically forecasts a future dominated by this new species of unrecognizably superior humans, and applications under study now to make this dream reality are being funded by thousands of government and private research facilities around the world. As the reader will learn, this includes among other things rewriting human DNA and combining men with beasts, a fact that some university studies and transhumanists believe will not only alter our bodies and souls but could ultimately open a door to contact with unseen intelligence.

As a result, new modes of perception between things visible and invisible are expected to challenge the Church in ways that are historically and theologically unprecedented. Without comprehending what is quickly approaching in related disciplines of research and development, vast numbers of believers could be paralyzed by the most fantastic—and most far reaching—supernatural implications. The destiny of each individual—as well as the future of their family—will depend on their knowledge of the new paradigm and their preparedness to face it head on.
