NEW PREDICTION: 8/20/06, TEXT ADDED 11/28/06 -- The above event actually occurs in threee parts. First comes the great earthquake; but we can see by its effects that it is not like any other "great earthquake" in the history of humanity. In particular, to cause the sun to darken and the moon to turn the colour of blood worldwide would require an event of unprecedented magnitude. It would have to be more than a mere earthquake, however large.
In recent years scientists have determined what it would require for the sun and moon to behave in this fashion: a nuclear winter, brought about by a largescale nuclear conflict (likely involving US and Russian arsenals); the atmospheric results of a sizeable asteroid or comet impact; and, most recently, the atmospheric results of a supervolcanic eruption. Due to certain other phenomena mentioned in Revelation Chapter 6, I must conclude that the "great earthquake" will not be manmade (thus ruling out a nuclear war scenario). Also, an asteroid or comet impact capable of producing such a change in sun and moon globally would have to be a "planet-killer" and would likely exterminate the entire human race as well as many other life forms. This leaves only a supervolcanic eruption as the most likely cause.
There are three supervolcanoes most likely to erupt in the near future: Toba in Indonesia, the Phlegraean Fields in Italy, and Yellowstone in the United States. Of the three, only Yellowstone is overdue for another eruption.
There is also the question of timing in prophecy. We know that 1) World War III and "the Comet", along with unprecedented global cataclysms, will occur at about the same time and 2) World War III will ultimately be fought on the battlefields of Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. The invasion of Europe by Russian/Eastern armies and subsequent Islamic war in southern Europe would be completely impossible if the supervolcano at the Phlegraean Fields erupted. Mobilising armies under those conditions could simply not be done. Toba and Yellowstone remain possibilities; however, prophecies like those of St. Hildegarde's appear to suggest that it will be the great nation in North America, the United States, that will suffer the greatest geological damage during time of war. That certainly narrows it down to Yellowstone.
So, what about the second part of Revelation 6:12-17: The sun becoming black "as sackcloth of hair," the moon turning "the colour of blood," and the stars falling "like unripe figs?" The part regarding the stars may be hard to explain, unless at this time Earth is also passing through a meteor swarm associated with a giant celestial body.
Despite computer models showing a 20-year "nuclear winter" following a super-eruption, such a scenario is unlikely. Such a situation would result in human extinction, and such complete destruction of humanity is never to be found in prophecy. Somehow, a sizable portion of mankind survives. The truth is no one has ever observed or recorded a super-eruption and its consequences. Scientists also admit no two super-eruptions will likely be the same: some will be more powerful than others. It may be that the eruption of Yellowstone will be bad enough to trigger geological upheavals worldwide, but not bad enough to cause 20 years of "nuclear winter."
Rather than a "nuclear winter" there may instead be a "nuclear autumn." A relatively shorter period of perhaps a year or less may ensue where the upper atmosphere is filled with dust or ash, obscuring the sun, moon, and stars. It may or may not result in lower temperatures. In a greenhouse situation where enough CO2 is also released, things may actually get hotter.
Line 3 has alchemic undertones. Otherwise, I believe this quatrain provides us with the length the two luminaries will be obfuscated and discoloured: eleven months. The French astrologer may have never lived to see the invention of the telescope, but he knew from his lessons in natural astrology (the forerunner of modern astronomy) that the moon needs the sun's radiance in order to reflect its own light back to the earth. It is doubtful he understood the scientific reasons behind why the sun and moon would one day appear perpetually eclipsed. Since the moon passes from full phase to full phase over a period of almost one month (29.5 days), the number of "times" the moon will be lacking the sun is another way of saying that this condition will persist for a little less than eleven months (10.87 months).
Thus, an era of darkness will cover the Earth from some point in May 2008 and gradually clear until April 2009, at which time normal sunlight and moonlight will return. Of course this will only be true if the May 2008 vector is correct. If the vector is sooner, then normalcy will return sooner. If later, then the "end of the tunnel" will be reached later.
However, whenever the darkness clears in 2009, something else will be seen in the heavens.
The remainder of Revelation 6:12-17 is seemingly inexplicable. For humans to see what is described unfold, the period of darkness must end. This is how we know that the opening of the sixth seal occurs in three parts and does not happen all at one time.
By August 2009, Planet X and World War III will be approaching a mutual peak as Russia and the Islamic armies led by Iran invade Europe. In September, as Russia is forced into a retreat by deadly "yellow dust" (Irlmaier, Stieglitz), the Muslim armies begin to prosecute a war in southern Europe. The sun will seem to halt in the heavens as a million French citizens are killed by weapons of fire from the sky.
Now the heavens appear like a scroll rolling up, mountains and islands flow with lava or slide under the seas, world leaders and military leaders alike prepare to enter their underground cities and bunkers as unprotected citizens seek refuge in caves and tunnels and any underground dwellings or shelters they can find.
Even this section can be broken into two parts, for the final appariton is the face of God Himself, or so it will seem. This is the great "Day of Wrath," and marks the closest approach of Planet X in November 2009. At this time the very worst catastrophes Planet X will be capable of causing will take place. The prophesied "three days of darkness" will also occur during which over two billion souls will die. Extremely severe geological disturbances will continue until June 2010. Thus, the entire passage of Planet X will run from April 2009 to June 2010. Less severe but damaging meteor storms, weeks of non-stop rainfall and lightning storms on end, major inundations, and earthquakes will continue as PX exerts influence from a distance until May 2011. These second and third stages of the sixth seal will be covered again on the 2009 and 2010 pages as they are developed.
April 17, 2008 (7:09 PM EDT), UPDATED May 21, 2008 (1:35 AM EDT): According to the Drudge Report, based on statistics at International Programs Center at http://www.census.gov/ipc/www/popclockworld.html, the world population will be 6,666,666,666 on May 10, 2008.
I find this quite disturbing when we consider the following quatrain by Nostradamus:
This quatrain is dated astrologically as May 10, although there is no year given. Even so, the fact that a significant occult number, 666, associated with great evil and found in the Book of Revelation, shall be achieved by the world population on that day and month is more than a bit disturbing when one considers the following projections for a global earthquake or supervolcanic eruption I have made using the base 7 system.
The projection of May 2008, by itself, is remarkable only from the perspective of a base 7 patterning of the Point Mugu (1973), Whittier Narrows (1987), Northridge (1994) and Nisqually (2001) earthquakes and the eruption of Mount St Helen's (1980). That there exists a Nostradamus quatrain that further supports a major earthquake occurring on May 10 is possibly only coincidental in this instance since a year is not provided.
However, the fact that May 10 shall be linked to the number 666 during this year, and only during this year, should be cause for considerable alarm.
The seismic troubles Nostradamus describes in Quatrain 9.83 is far beyond that of any normal killer quake. It is powerful enough to not only cause darkness to fill the air, sky, and land, but also to turn the faithless and those of other faiths towards God and the saints.
666, the number of man and also the number of the beast can further be expressed as a possible code for the opening of the sixth seal of Revelation which unleashes the universal earthquake, the moon of blood, the blackened sun, and nameless horrors in the heavens that may be associated with the ultimate arrival of Planet X.
Did Nostradamus' Great May 10 Earthquake Strike in China?
In Quatrain 9.83 above, Nostradamus foresaw a terrible earthquake, "the great theatre filled up is ruined" and "the earth, sky, and land darkened and troubled" happening on May 10 (no year given) when "the infidel calls upon God and the saints." Is it possible that this may apply to the recent China quake? The earthquake struck on May 12, 2008 at 06:28:01 UTC (2:28: 01 PM EDT), missing Nostradamus' date by only two days.
There is no question that China is a largely atheistic country ("infidel") and we have seen the "darkness" in the air covering the land in the form of dust. Although I applied this quatrain and the date the world population would reach 6,666,666,666 more to the long-awaited West Coast quake and Yellowstone erupting, in a much larger sense, I clearly indicated that May 10 would approximate the date of the opening of the sixth seal of Revelation and the so-called "universal earthquake."
Is the breaking of the Sixth Seal of Revelation taking place slowly?
If we focus away from the failure of the West coast to deliver a major quake or Yellowstone to erupt (so far anyway), May 2008 has indeed been a scary month ... and the month is far from over.
The Chaiten Volcano could yet be a precursor to Yellowstone I suppose, and was a major event in and of itself; another massive temblor rattled Tokyo and other parts of Japan; the cyclone in Myanmar has caused unprecedented casualties and destruction; and now a new "Great China Quake" ... hardly a week passes without some new geological or weather-related horror since Chaiten blew its top. And all of this activity has occurred in May.
Are we witnessing events that shall continue to accumulate and worsen over the course of May until the sixth seal has finally been opened?
What about the July 2008 vector for an asteroid impact (or was our near miss in January our close call)? Even if Toutatis or some other space rock doesn't smack into the sea or ocean in that month, I think I'd be concerned about something nearly as bad happening, given what is already occurring in the world in a month that was supposed to be the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera. At the current rate events are taking place, the world may well be in nearly as bad a shape by the end of May as it would have if Yellowstone had erupted ... or even worse by July.
The possibility that we are now experiencing a "long drawn out opening of the sixth seal" is currently in discussion on the Prophetic Messenger Forum at http://mm2001.forumco.com/topic~TOPIC_ID~598~whichpage~5.asp

NEW PREDICTION: 12/11/07 -- I guess Al Qaeda or the nation of Iran will not like the prospects for Middle East peace very much. This will be a very nightmarish attack in May 2008, possibly involving the use of a nuclear weapon or device. People will gawk at the destruction on television in total awe and disbelief.

NEW PREDICTION: 7/5/07 -- A cult's high priestess catches fire in Spain in May/June 2008 or May/June 2012 (second vector posted December 7, 2007). It may be part of a stage act that goes horribly wrong. The fire will be so all-consuming; she shall seem lost forever like Joan d'Arc! But miracles of miracles ... Will she survive? She may; she may not. But a truer fire never seen reveals her identity in prophecy!
Perhaps this event will change the woman for the good, she will repent of her ways, and she shall become the great leader she aspires to be by becoming a better person.
Or else, they may be days sifting the ashes for her bones!
Do not ride the great bull, or any other horned monster, for yet the third time. Once was obscene, twice was sacrilidge, but thrice shall be a great wickedness unpardonable and bring great evil upon the innocents. This last event earns the death wages!
The crowd shall see you then as you truly are and be as in Metropolis pressing upon you, unbelieving and laughing, as your captors escort you properly and then propel you to your fiery death. They shall watch your agony on the great screens in their homes, but derive only pleasure for the watching.
17:16-17 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast,
these shall hate the whore, and
shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire. For God hath
put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast,
until the words of God shall be fulfilled.
UPDATED October 3, 2007, POSTED October 16, 2007: Age 50 is literally Madonna's deadline: she must succeed or else die as a sacrifice to the great ones. Britney Spears, a member of the modern-day version of the Babylonian entu (read on), also intended to be her potential successor, now appears to be marked for premature termination. Termination ages normally end with 0 and vary from 30 to 60, depending on the purpose of the mind slave and the mission. A mission accomplished is the only way to survive for some; for others, such as simple sex slaves (who are largely disposable), this will not matter. Anna Nicole died voluntarily of drugs overdose at age 39 because she was marked for termination as a human sacrifice at age 40.
However, before the scarlet whore can fully ascend to her supreme position, there remains one last rite of passage, by far the most dangerous of all. It is win or lose for Madonna next year as she must mark the start of her 50th year with yet another musical tour. Note that three of the four elements of Nature have been thoroughly explored during her last three tours: water (Drowned World), earth (Re-Invention), and air (Confessions). Now comes fire and the ultimate baptism.
|Madonna may arrive in Spain, and other places on her tour, riding a large bull (real or artificial). This is symbolic as the goddess Europa also rode a bull and this represents the European Union itself. Europa was the Great Goddess and Mother of the continent of Europe. In the book of Revelation, goddess and bull undergo a metamorphosis into the great whore who sits upon many waters and also sits upon a scarlet coloured beast. Thus, Madonna symbolically sits upon the beast on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea like the goddess Europa. According to the original Greek myth, the climax of the tour shall take place on the island of Crete.|
Obscurely, Nostradamus tells us this shall all occur at a pivotal moment in one of the current or future Middle East wars. Note that the "lady" will desire to cause Christians ("Innocents") to be burned alive as a public spectacle. Perhaps these victims are those who will reject Kabbalah and her ugly sister Scientology as true faiths (even as I write, Scientology has carried out two spectacular murders, one of them possibly at the behest of the United States government, see 2009 (Part Two)). However, if this is part of a Madonna rock tour, it is more likely to be conducted via special effects. Madonna, after all, did not actually nail her wrists and ankles to the cross in last year's tour. Still, this will send the world a powerful message.
The quatrain also describes either the physical destruction or "spiritual" transformation of Madonna by fire. This may play out in one of two ways: being burned at the stake like Jean d'Arc or merging the crucifixion ritual from 2006 with a sacrificial burning to Baal ("bull"), the god of fertility. Thus, Madonna is transformed from her role as female Christ and bearer of the world's sins into the goddess Ishtar.
"monstrous bull" or "ox" failed to appear
when Kylie Minogue's KYLIEX2008
Tour reached Madrid Spain on June 03 2008 at Palacio De Los Deportes.
not even a mechanical bull was available as seen here on her 2007
television special. There was no shortage of "sacrificial virgins" however.
UPDATE (8/3/08): This was something of a shock to learn: that pop singer/entertainer Kylie Minogue would be appearing live in Madrid, Spain during the May/June 2008 vector ... on 3 June. I had already used Kylie's images from her 2001 lingerie commercial where she rides a mechanical bull to dramatise the following remark from my prediction: "Do not ride the great bull, or any other horned monster, for yet the third time. Once was obscene, twice was sacrilidge, but thrice shall be a great wickedness unpardonable and bring great evil upon the innocents."
I must stress that at the time I placed these images on the prediction in July 2007 it was purely for dramatisation purposes. I had absolutely no intention of associating Kylie Minogue with the above prediction at all, but rather, was implying Madonna or, if not her, then someone else not known at the time.
However, since the release of Kylie's album 'X' in Europe late last year, along with the TV special and videos, some of which are quite dark in nature, I have suggested since that she may be competing with Madonna for the role of Whore of Babylon or attempting to set herself up as a possible successor.
How strange then to discover her reprising her mechanical bull ride in 2007. With two famous bull rides to her credit, the prediction warned against a third such attempt.
It would appear Ms Minogue did the right thing and avoided introducing the bull theme into her tour.
Now, however, it is Madonna's turn. Kylie did not appear at Seville (Sevilla), but rather Madrid. In Nostradamus' above quatrain, Seville could have stood for the whole of Spain (and, thus, anywhere in Spain ... any city).
But now, Madonna, who is without question one to whom this prediction is applied, has announced that she shall be appearing in her Sticky & Sweet Tour in Seville on 16 September 2008.
Once again one wonders what shall be her stage themes, what special effects she shall use, what great and stellar point she shall try to bring across to her millions of fans? Will religion play a key factor again as it did in 2006? Only the high priestess of Kabbalah and whore of Babylon herself knows that.
Will something go terribly wrong with the stage effects since the 'lady' (Madonna) is engulfed by the 'true flame?' It is not difficult to imagine the setting afire of 'sacrificial virgins' as part of a magic illusion using pyro-technics, a sensational visual effect for stage. However, this true fire can still symbolise something else, suggesting some kind of spiritual conversion.
The bulls do not run in Seville in September as far as I know. But the golden bull god Molech is always eager for a sacrifice ... the god honoured by Ishtar, Madonna's aspiration, to become that very goddess. We shall see what wonders and dark miracles the great avatar herself shall weave. In Seville ... soon she arrives!

Seville, Spain - September 16, 2008
Barcelona, Spain - July 21, 2009
COMMENTS (4/27/10): BURN, baby, burn! In the final segments of the above videos, Madonna goes up in fiery flames in Sevilla, Spain, on September 16, 2008, as promised and also in Barcelona, Spain, on July 21, 2009. This occurred also in Valencia, Spain in 2008 ... but the videos I have seen of that event are not good and shot at a distance or else the camera pans away from Madonna aflame. YouTube users also have a nasty habit, I should add, of removing their videos some times. An excellent video of Madonna burning in 2009 was disabled by the user. Sadly, the Barcelona video is much better quality than the Seville ones, so I give you four Sevillas to pick your favourite! Ha Ha! I will say one thing about the Barcelona video, Madonna really looks like she is being barbecued!
As I indicated, I thought this event would likely be staged and ... it has to be admitted ... it became one of the highlights of her tour. There is no question that Madonna is to be seen burning in flames! There is no interpetation ... she appears to be on fire, a willing human sacrifice, and that is what she wants the audience to perceive. But of course, it is all staged. Seville delivered as promised, although Barcelona and Valencia are close enough to Seville for my purposes as well. This is a PREDICTION FULFILLED, although not to the degree intended by Nostradamus certainly as far as we know. Further research is required to see if that was the case. Nevertheless, it is very doubtful that the "lady" in his quatrain is someone obscure, I would argue ... and Madonna is (or as Lady Gaga increases in popularity, was) the most famous female celebrity in the world at this time. The monstrous ox is symbolic of Someone related to the giant eye and other related huge symbols and words that are very prevalent in these videos. Can you guess what the monstrous ox may be? Nostradamus was very clever to mention the monstrous ox in a place well known for bullfighting ... but it is not a bull he is talking about.

NEW PREDICTION: 5/19/07 -- OK. Maybe we'll be lucky and Yellowstone won't blow ... at least not yet. I hope not, because have I got some good news for you if it doesn't!
As many of you may know, in terms of the Triple Crown races we have been in something of a very long drought. There hasn't been a triple crown winner since 1978. The chance for that to happen again came in 2005; but the horse with greatest potential in 25 years, Funny Cide, entered prematurely in 2003 and lost, then Smarty Jones let everyone down in 2004. As a result, there were no contenders for 2005 ... or 2006.
What happened? Think hard, Spike. It is the long drought that must be broken first. You can't have horses similar to Affirmed and Seattle Slew winning in the 2000s until you have the horse that breaks the long drought first. Seattle Slew (1977) and Affirmed (1978) were number 2 and 3 after the horse that made it possible for winners to happen again in the 1970s: Secretariat!
2008 is the year to bet on whoever the front running horse is for the American Triple Crown (if there is one). I knew Funny Cide would lose in 2003 and I knew Smarty Jones would lose in 2004. The years were all wrong. Since Affirmed (1978) we have been in a long drought similar in length to the one that intervened between Citation (1948) and Secretariat (1973). This drought can only end in a year like the year that broke the drought following Citation: a year like the year Secretariat won (1973). That comes next in June 2008.
Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense need only win the Preakness and he will be favoured to win the Belmont this year, 2007. I cannot tell you for certain that he will lose. If this year is like 1979 all over again, the year we are now aligned with, he will lose. But, as many of you know, there can be an adjacent influence from a year either side of the target year. Thus, the influence of 1973, which should repeat next year in 2008, could spell victory a year early for Street Sense in 2007.
On the darker side, it appears we have already experienced our Charles Whitman redux a year early at Virginia Tech, so one cannot rule out a Secretariat-type win a year early either.
However, I will say this much: if Street Sense fails to deliver this year, I will be very resolute in saying that 2008 will be the year for the first Triple Crown winner since 1978, and I will be betting everything I can afford to lose on any horse with promise that wins both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness and is headed for the Belmont next year.
In any event, folks, this an alert! It is going to happen. We are definitely in the ballpark for either 2007 or 2008 to witness a truly rare event in horse racing history. My best advice: bet cautiously this year at the Belmont even if Street Sense wins the Preakness; the chances are high that he will probably lose.
And if he does lose, be very confident about 2008 and bet very high, for whoever the favourite is will make history!
If Street Sense wins this year, still bet high in 2008. I've a feeling that 2008 is still meant to be the year and we will witness a double championship period like 1977 and 1978. Who knows? Maybe Street Sense will be the first horse to win the Triple two years in a row!
Brown, ridden by jockey Kent Desormeaux, falls to the last place
home stretch in the 140th Belmont Stakes horse race at Belmont Park in
Elmont, N.Y., on Saturday, June 7, 2008. (AP Photo/Peter Morgan)
Two weeks after the Belmont, a picture revealed a dislodged shoe on Big Brown's right hind leg that could have been the cause of his poor performance. The shoe might have come loose during the race and gotten pushed back in while he was running.
FINAL COMMENTS (2/8/11): Got the right race and the right horse, I feel, for the first Triple Crown Win since 1979. Indeed, this horse broke records going back as long ago as 1915. However, the outcome of the third and final race, The Belmont, was thwarted by an badly shod shoe ... ergo, this race was fixed! I will not be convinced otherwise. I know it is true ... and so do you!
Note: as if to confirm how special a horse Big Brown was and how narrowly the odds were against a Triple Crown Win in 2008 BEFORE he took the Kentucky Derby, no horse has yet even come close to matching him in the Derby and Preakness since 2008.

Earthquake kills six in Colombia -- At least 10 wounded
May 24, 2008
BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) -- A moderate earthquake shook the Colombian capital Saturday afternoon, killing at least six people and injuring more than 10. The quake, with a preliminary measurement of magnitude 5.6, shook buildings and sent residents running into the streets.
Colombian Interior Minister Carlos Holguin confirmed that six people were killed by falling rocks and earth on a highway between Bogota and Villavicencio. The quake started about 2:20 p.m. local time (19:20 GMT) and was centered about 30 miles (50 kilometers) southeast of the capital, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
It struck at a depth of just 6 miles (10 kilometers) and lasted about 40 seconds. Shallower earthquakes are felt more strongly than those that occur deep in the earth. A number of smaller aftershocks were felt over the next hour.
Many people fled buildings, fearing that they could collapse, and anxiously waited on the streets of Bogota. Phone systems were down briefly, and calls to officials went unanswered. President Alvaro Uribe ordered officials to assess the damage quickly "to learn how to help the community."
Emergency crews reported that a church in Puenquetame, about 20 miles (35 kilometers) southeast of Bogota, suffered serious structural damage, according to Luza Amanda Pulido, director of the president's disaster office. Some homes were also damaged.

NEW PREDICTION: 7/5/07 -- I think we can eliminate the Jordanian royal family from this prediction, even though Jordan is included in this vector. There is a chance that King Hussein will be assassinated in 2007; however there is little chance of Jordan being taken over by Iran or Al Qaeda/Taliban in 2008. That is because there is a very strong vector for a military alliance between Jordan and Egypt to be formed in April 2009 against Iran and its proxy satellite state Iraq.
I would suggest that it is Saudi Arabia or an oil kingdom like Kuwait (perhaps more than one) that shall see this atrocity take place in June 2008. It is hard to be sure if Iran or its allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan (Al Qaeda and the "new" Taliban) will be responsible for this. This operation will be quick and surprise everyone, causing the United States to send troops into Saudi Arabia to battle Iran and its allies as prophesied by the Seer of Waldviertel and Erna Steiglitz.
Assassination Attempted on Saudi Prince -- Suicide Bomber Lightly Wounds Senior Prince Involved with Anti-Terrorism Campaign
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, Aug. 27, 2009
(AP) A suicide bomber lightly wounded a senior prince largely credited for Saudi Arabia's anti-terrorism campaign when he blew himself up just before going into a gathering of well-wishers for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, the state news agency said Friday.
It was the first known assassination attempt against a member of the royal family since Saudi Arabia began its crackdown on al Qaeda affiliated militants eight years ago following the Sept. 11 terror attacks in the United States.
The militant who attacked the assistant interior minister, Prince Muhammad bin Nayef, late Thursday at the Ramadan gathering in Jiddah had previously expressed his intention to give himself up to the official, the Saudi Press Agency quoted the royal court as saying.
It is customary for senior members of the royal family to hold regular open gatherings where citizens can air grievances, seek settlement of financial or other disputes or offer congratulations.
Upon hearing news of the attack, King Abdullah swiftly headed to hospital, according to the agency. It said the prince, who is the son of Interior Minister Prince Nayef, was discharged from the hospital and nobody else was seriously injured.
The Interior Ministry has spearheaded the kingdom's aggressive campaign against terrorism, one that has intensified since militants first struck in the kingdom in May 2003. The country is the birthplace of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and was home to 15 of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers.
On Aug. 19, authorities announced the arrest of 44 suspected militants with al Qaeda links in a yearlong sweep that also uncovered dozens of machine guns and electronic circuits for bombs.
Last month, Saudi officials said a Saudi criminal court had convicted and sentenced 330 al Qaeda militants to jail terms, fines and travel bans in the country's first known trials for suspected members of the terror group.
The 330 are believed to be among the 991 suspected militants that the interior minister has said have been charged with participating in terrorist attacks over the past five years.

Her initial claim for asylum was rejected by Britain's Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, because of inconsistencies in her account, and fears that she was exaggerating the dangers. On appeal, however, the wealthy princess was given permanent leave to remain in Britain.
Last night the Home Office refused to comment on the case, saying it would not discuss an individual decision. But the granting of asylum to a Saudi princess could have serious implications for relations between the UK and the oil-rich desert kingdom, which has proved a useful ally in the West's war on terror. Three years ago, during a Serious Fraud Office investigation into alleged bribes paid to senior Saudis, the Saudi government threatened to restrict the flow of intelligence it provides on terrorism.
In 1980, Saudi Arabian diplomats protested to Britain over the ITV drama-documentary Death Of A Princess - which reconstructed the death of a young royal publicly executed with her lover for adultery. Britain's ambassador to Saudi Arabia was expelled and export orders cancelled.
In the latest case, the woman - who was given anonymity by the asylum tribunal - met her non-Muslim English boyfriend during a visit to London and they began a sexual relationship. The following year, while in Saudi Arabia, she discovered she had become pregnant by her lover. According to her account, she had reason to believe her elderly husband - a member of the huge and fabulously rich Saudi royal family - was growing increasingly suspicious of her behaviour.
She claimed that in order to give birth in London in secret she came up with an excuse to visit Britain again. The child was born in the UK and she then claimed asylum, saying that her life would be in danger if she returned to Saudi Arabia.
She said that if she went back there with her baby she could have been subject to Sharia law. For adultery she might have faced flogging, stoning to death or beheading. She argued that even if the Saudi legal system spared her, she could have been murdered in an 'honour killing' by relatives of her husband.
A Home Office source said: 'When she first claimed asylum there were too many inconsistencies in her account of what had gone on, and she was not found to have proved she faced dire consequences. It was only on appeal that she was successful. We haven't heard from her since then, unlike many asylum seekers, because she is so wealthy she doesn't need any state support.'
The woman is understood to have had no contact from her own family or her husband's since fleeing Saudi Arabia. The Saudi embassy in London yesterday declined to comment. A spokesman for the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal said it could not give any details of the princess's asylum application.

Kate Moss statue 'largest since ancient Egypt'
August 28, 2008
LONDON, England (CNN) -- The British Museum plans to display a statue of supermodel Kate Moss that it bills as the largest gold statue built since ancient Egypt.
The statue of Kate Moss will be displayed in the British Museum in a gallery holding anicent Greek sculpture. Called "Siren," the statue will be part of a group of major sculptures by leading British artists to go on display at the museum in October, the museum announced.
The museum says the artist, Marc Quinn, claims it's the largest gold statue since ancient Egypt.
The Kate Moss statue will be displayed in a gallery of the museum that houses ancient Greek sculpture. The museum calls it a "fitting setting" for the statue of Moss, "interacting with the great Greek beauties that surround it." The exhibit is expected to run from October 4 through January 25, 2009.

NEW PREDICTION: 11/3/06 -- Not since the days when Ronald Reagan called Russia "the Evil Empire" will tensions be as great between the United States and the Russian Federation. Russian incursions in the Gulf of Bothnia, the North Sea, and in Japanese waters, a crisis involving US and Russian warships, along with Moscow's deepening alliance with Iran and other Iranian allies in the Middle East and former Soviet Union, will raise American concerns that the Russian leadership is preparing for war against US and Western interests. Russia will likewise complain of Nato and the EU encroaching upon Russia's borders and blast America's support for civil war in Georgia and revolutions in Hungary and Ukraine.
What will initially be candidate Hillary Clinton's opportunity in July 2008 to expound upon her ideas of improving the changing relationship between the two largest nuclear powers in the world and clarify the issue of mutual responsibility in a new climate of internationalism will deteriorate into a verbal slugfest with the new Russian president, Vladimir Zhirinovsky. During this "debate" the world will see Russia with new eyes and feel the shadow of the terrible war to come that will dwarf all other ongoing conflicts. Zhirinovsky will show he is a man to be truly feared, and will make Iran's president seem like a lightweight in comparison. Not since the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis will Americans feel such insecurity, as will many Europeans, and this unease will continue for many, many more months.

Recent concerns by astronomers that an asteroid could collide with the earth in the near future -- with little or no advance detection -- appear to be well-founded in the above verses. Several near-misses have already occurred, although most of the objects in question were less than 200 feet in circumference.
Every four years an asteroid named Toutatis passes uncomfortably close to the earth. This elongated rock -- which measures nearly a mile across -- also possesses another feature of interest: it rolls end over end in a tumbling motion. It is the only near-earth planetoid that behaves in this manner, eerily similar to the "mountain" that "rolls long" in Quatrain 1.69.
If Toutatis is the asteroid predicted by Nostradamus, it will smash into the Aegean or Ionian sea at the start of or part-way through the reign of Hieron (anagram of Chiren).
Evidence in the Epistle to Henry II and the quatrains place Chiren's rule as king of France and later as emperor in the 2008 - 2016 period. France will, in fact, begin chairing the EU presidency in July 2008. Thus, should the object in question be Toutatis, and taking into consideration its four-year orbit, the likeliest time of its impact will be the year 2008. The base 7 vector for this catastrophe, in fact, is July 2008.
To view a personal vision by me that may relate to this event, open a Dream Window.
UPDATE (10/7/07): Asteroid 2006 HZ51 has been removed from the risk table. It shall not strike earth on June 21, 2008 as earlier reported ... or will it? We shall see.
I have for some time believed that the following prophecy no longer applies to Toutatis or any other asteroid bound to strike earth in 2008. Those reading the email forums over the last few years and the Prophetic Messenger Forum would know this:
Unlike the asteroid of Nostradamus's prophecy, this biblical mountain from the sky shall strike one of earth's major oceans. We know the recently-discovered asteroid Apophis shall strike earth in either April 2029 or April 2036 according to astronomers (note the seven year period between 2029 and the second pass in 2036). Russian astronomers now favour a 2029 impact. There is a dream by website viewer and forum contributer Conor that I shall soon post which supports the 2029 dating.
What then are the chances of an impact in the Mediteranean per Nostradamus's quatrains? There has been no discussion of Toutatis yet by the media, but now there is talk of an asteroid that may strike earth on January 29, 2008 .... and it moves in a tumbling motion like Toutatis!
PARIS -- A huge asteroid will zoom past Earth next week at such a close distance that amateur astronomers should be able to spot it, specialists said on Wednesday.
Measuring between 150 and 600 meters across, asteroid 2007 TU24 would inflict devastating regional damage were it to hit Earth, but there is no risk of any collision, they said.
It will fly by on Tuesday, being around 534,000 kilometers (334,000 miles) from the Earth at its closest point at 0834 GMT, according to a Near Earth Object (NEO) database compiled by the University of Pisa in Italy. "For a brief time the asteroid will be observable in dark and clear skies with amateur telescopes of three inches (7.5 centimeters) or larger," NASA said on its NEO site.
2007 TU24 will make the closest approach of any known potentially hazardous asteroid of this size or larger until 2027, NASA said, adding that objects of this size come close to Earth about every five years or so on average. The rock was discovered only last October under a surveillance program run by the University of Arizona.
According to the Minor Planet Center of the Paris-based International Astronomical Union (IAU), the closest detected approach by an asteroid was on March 31, 2004 by 2004 FU162, which came within 6,500 kilometers (4,000 miles) of Earth.
The day after 2007 TU24's terrestrial flyby, asteroid 2007 WD5 is expected to come within 26,000 kilometers (16,250 miles) of Mars, a distance that is less than a whisker in space terms. 2007 WD5 ignited a brief surge of excitement among astronomers after it was discovered in November.
Initial computations of its orbit gave a roughly 1-in-25 chance that it might whack into Mars on January 30, providing a celestial show that could be monitored by US and European scoutcraft there.
Measuring about 50 meters (165 feet) across, it would have delivered an impact equivalent to a three-megaton nuclear weapon. A rock of this size exploded over Tunguska, Siberia, in 1908, felling around 80 million trees over 2,200 square kilometers (850 square miles).
But further calculation showed that the hoped-for big splat would be a big miss. "It's highly unlikely that it's going to hit," said NEO expert Benny Peiser of Liverpool John Moores University in northwestern England, as the odds of a collision by 2007 WD5 fell to around 0.01 percent, or one in 10,000.
December 26, 2007 (3:15 AM EST): The latest reports concerning asteroid 2007 WD5 could be considered an example of "first here's the good news, then here's the bad." With a 1 in 75 chance -- and narrowing! -- of slamming into Mars on January 30, 2008, this will be the first event of this type to take place in nearly fourteen (2 x 7) years since fragments of the comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 smacked into Jupiter in July 1994.
This is not a minor event by any means ... if it occurs. The impacts on Jupiter in 1994 were the base 7 precedent for my projection of earth being struck by an asteroid in July 2008 ... fourteen years later. The asteroid I selected when I made the prediction back in 1998 was Toutatis, largely because it is a near earth asteroid that passes closely every four years, 2008 being its next passage, and its shape, size, and movement matches that of the asteroid in Quatrain 1.69 by Nostradamus:
Toutatis made a close pass by earth on Halloween night, 2004 ... supposedly the closest for many years. Its 2008 passage is not supposed to be nearly as close as in 2004. Yet, with the second largest recorded dust storm ever on Mars this last summer, Comet Holmes brightening a millionfold from obscurity to brilliant naked eye magnitude on October 23, 2007 (yes, even I could not miss this one with my own eyes), and now this possible collision between asteroid 2007 WD5 and Mars, it is clear that something out there in the neighbourhood between Mars and Jupiter is causing these unusual events in space. That same "something" could easily perturb the orbit of Toutatis when it moves past earth this comming year, or some other asteroid or celestial body, causing it to impact in the Aegean or Ionian sea. And that "something" may well be Planet X.
In any event, "the good news" is that if asteroid 2007 WD5 does indeed slam into Mars on January 30, 2008, it will be following a base 7 line or path running from Jupiter to Mars to Earth to Venus to (possibly) Mercury. If the impact on Mars is sufficently dynamic and observable from earth, then it is quite likely our planet may at least be spared an impact by an asteroid in July 2008. In other words, the event that was projected for earth in 2008 may happen to Mars instead, thus deferring the Earth impact at least 14 years into the future, but more probably 28 years. That, interestingly enough, takes us to April 2036: the month and year Apophis is to strike.
However, the big question is: was Mars already hit by an asteroid or comet since 1994? At a time close to 7 years later (allowing for an adjacent fulfillment a year before [6 years] or a year late [8 years] )? The answer may be yes. On June 5, 2000, there were many people who believed that a comet called 76P West-Kohoutek-Ikemura struck Mars. No one has been able to prove or disprove this claim: only that the devastation this was to bring to earth in the form of a giant red dust cloud, Martian fragments striking major oceans and seas, and its moon Phobos shearing the earth's upper atmosphere never materialised (although I and a friend and his family did witness the rust-coloured dust in the darkness of the country in October of that year).
Still, if this collision did happen in 2000, and asteroid 2007 WD5 fails to strike Mars next month, then we remain on track for an asteroid impact occurring here on earth this year, probably close to the day of August 9, 2008, which is also the Hebrew 9th of Av, the day of destruction. The asteroid may still be Toutatis, as originally projected, especially if its orbit is perturbed by the gravitational influence of Planet X.
Then again, the object in question could be the one I saw in a dream vision: a black, obelisk-shaped moon seen at the upper right hand of Planet X.
McClellan (March 5, 2003)
... What I saw is actually difficult to describe. It was like a ball of fire in the sky -- not like the sun, but more like a fireball. I would say the colour was closer to orange or a yellow-orange, not red. What was really weird about this thing was that it was spinning wildly around like a top. The gases and fire seemed to whirl around at a rapid pace and what looked like darker bands of smoke or flame were whirling around the object at an incredible rate of speed. Like a top, the fireball seemed to wobble in the sky as it spun. It was incredibly strange.
I don't know if I was seeing this as it would appear under normal observation or if I was being given a closer look.
Then I saw something else that startled me. To the upper right of this whirling fireball, I could see a much smaller black object. It was not round, but oblong. It remained stationary even though the fireball was rapidly spinning. I figured the reason I could see it at all was because the light of the fireball was bright enough to make it show up as black against the background. For some reason I was made to know that we should fear not only the fireball, but the small black object near it as well. My impression was that this was an asteroid being pulled along with the spinning object.
I knew when I saw it that it would cause as much or more destruction than Planet X itself ... this time around. If so, this may mean the so-called "deep space" planet formerly named Xena, and now called Eris (the goddess of chaos, strife and discord), is indeed the real Planet X, and its moon, Gabrielle, now called Dysnomia (the daimon goddess of lawlessness, anarchy, and mob violence, also the daughter of Eris) is the seventh obelisk (seventh rock of the Apocalypse).
Did Nostradamus Name Planet X?
Nostradamus actually names Planet X as Eris in anagram:
Nostradamus, Quatrain 6.44 ~
When Planet X is apparent by both day and night as Eris, France will begin experimenting with the "yellow dust" chem-bio weapon Alois Irlmaier warns will be used against Russia when it invades Europe. Also at this time, the US fleet will be attacked by Russian and Iranian air and naval forces, and a bloody revolution or civil war shall break out in Germany (sow), incited by Russian spetsnaz agents (bear). This terrifying quatrain confirms that Planet X will be apparent at the same time World War III is begun in Europe by Russia ... only a short while before total thermonuclear war breaks out between Russia and the United States.
Nostradamus may have done what often many medieval writers did: chop off the century number from a date (thus, 66 rather than 1666) and exaggerate lengths of time (in this case, 40 years rather than 4). Initially, most Planet X "scholars" believed it would arrive in the year 2003: even Russia prepared for the possibility their country would cease to exist in that year according to one of their own news articles. If it did reach us in that year, it has remained unseen, hidden; however, I believe it is only now approaching us and will begin to make its first serious impact on our planet in the year 2008. It will not actually be seen until 2009, but its influence will be seen next year ... and possibly its wayward moon Gabrielle shall strike the planet with full force:
Thus 2003 + 4 = 2007: the period Eris was expected to appear and did not. 2008 + 4 = 2012: the period of what I believe shall be a lengthy passage, with the worst of it occurring between April 2009 and May 2011. However, since Planet X is bound not only by Newtonian physics but also by the laws of God Himself, there remains the chance that Planet X will be held back until the Mayan end date year of 2012. Also, deeply encoded into Nostradamus' own prophecies for the months and year February and December 2044 is the distinct possibility that our planet shall be given one "last chance" at normality: 2003 + 40 = 2043. Many Old European prophecies date the comming war as beginning in 2038 and the Egyptian prophecies likewise foretell of a warning in the sky in 2034 and the birth of a new messiah in either 2039 or 2041.
This is my way of introducing you all to a greater mystery: is our generation "the sixth seal generation of Revelation," "the seventh seal, seventh angel age generation of Revelation" or both? What shall be discussed in these pages as I broaden the scope of this complex riddle is the possibility of three futures: World War III in Europe and Planet X in 2009, World War III in Europe and Planet X in 2012, or World War III in Europe and Planet X between 2038 and 2044.
|Earth escapes close encounter with
09 October 2008
THE Earth has survived a close encounter with a chunk of space rock travelling at more than 29,000 miles per hour. The cosmic close-call happened on Tuesday when the asteroid, named 2008-TC3 by Nasa, drifted within a mere 7,600 miles (12,200km) of the planet.
It was predicted to enter the Earth's atmosphere above Northern Sudan, Africa, at approximately 01:46 UTC, though not expected to survive.
Pilots of a KLM flight around 750 miles away reported an aerial flash around the time the asteroid was expected.
It is not yet known whether the object skipped off the atmosphere and back out into space, or burned up.
Approaches by so-called Near Earth Objects (NEOs) are usually measured in lunar distances, equivalent to around 384,000 kilometres, which is the average between the Earth and the Moon.
Most float harmlessly past our planet at ranges far greater than 1LD, with recently observed NEO's tracking at anything from 5 to 65LD (1.92million km to 24.9million km).
By comparison, 2008-TC3 came within 0.02LD.
Despite being only five metres across, the asteroid could have caused huge damage had it hit the ground. Travelling at around eight miles per second it would have packed a punch equivalent to one or more nuclear bombs going off.
The size of the crater, however, would depend on the composition of the meteorite and the ground it struck. One indicator of the devastating power of impacts can be seen in the Barringer Crater, otherwise known as Meteor Crater, near Flagstaff, Arizona, in the United States.
The asteroid responsible is estimated to have been 50m across - 10 times the size of 2008-TC3 - and exploded with the force of 150 atom bombs. It left a crater about 1,200m (4,000ft) in diameter, around 170m deep (570ft), which is surrounded by a rim that rises 45m (150ft) above the surrounding plains.
COMMENTS (10/15/08): This asteroid, had it struck, would have been a city-killer, not a planet-killer. Imagine, even so, what would have occurred had 2008-TC3 struck the banks of the Nile River which seperates Sudan from Egypt. On a much smaller scale we would have witnessed the Mediterranean Sea impact scenario discussed above ... flooding and tidal waves crashing down on both sides wiping out, perhaps, Khartoum and Cairo? This prediction is without a doubt a CLOSE CALL since an air burst by an asteroid is as close as we would want to get to an actual impact.
Asteroid blast reveals holes in Earth's defences
22:54 26 October 2009
As the US government ponders a strategy to deal with threatening asteroids, a dramatic explosion over Indonesia has underscored how blind we still are to hurtling space rocks.
On 8 October an asteroid detonated high in the atmosphere above South Sulawesi, Indonesia, releasing about as much energy as 50,000 tons of TNT, according to a NASA estimate released on Friday. That's about three times more powerful than the atomic bomb that levelled Hiroshima, making it one of the largest asteroid explosions ever observed.
However, the blast caused no damage on the ground because of the high altitude, 15 to 20 kilometres above Earth's surface, says astronomer Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario (UWO), Canada.
Brown and Elizabeth Silber, also of UWO, estimated the explosion energy from infrasound waves that rippled halfway around the world and were recorded by an international network of instruments that listens for nuclear explosions.
The explosion was heard by witnesses in Indonesia. Video images of the sky following the event show a dust trail characteristic of an exploding asteroid.
The amount of energy released suggests the object was about 10 metres across, the researchers say. Such objects are thought to hit Earth about once per decade.
No telescope spotted the asteroid ahead of its impact. That is not surprising, given that only a tiny fraction of asteroids smaller than 100 metres across have been catalogued, says Tim Spahr, director of the Minor Planet Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Yet objects as small as 20 or 30 metres across may be capable of doing damage on the ground, he says.
"If you want to find the smallest objects you have to build more, larger telescopes," says Spahr. "A survey that finds all of the 20-metre objects will cost probably multiple billions of dollars."
The US Office of Science and Technology Policy, which advises the White House, must develop a policy to address the asteroid hazard by October 2010 under a deadline imposed by 2008 legislation. It is likely to be influenced by a report from the National Research Council on the asteroid problem, which is expected by year's end.
Asteroid with energy of three Hiroshima bombs explodes over Indonesia
Thursday, 29 October 2009
An asteroid, with the energy of three Hiroshima bombs, has exploded in the atmosphere above Indonesia - reigniting fears about Earth's defences against space impacts. Witnesses in Indonesia heard the explosion and spotted a huge fireball in the sky. The blast was also heard by monitoring stations 10,000 miles away, according to a report by scientists at the University of Western Ontario. The explosion, on October 8, caused no damage on the ground because it occurred at high altitude, 15 to 20km above Earth's surface.
Nasa estimates the explosion was the equivalent to 50,000 tons of TNT, making it one of the largest asteroid explosions ever observed.
Scientists are worried that it was not spotted by telescopes ahead of the impact, and that had it been larger and at a lower altitude it could have caused a disaster.
A Nasa statement said: "We estimate size to be about 5-10 meters in diameter. As a rule, the most common types of stony asteroids would not be expected to cause ground damage unless their diameters were about 25 meters in diameter or larger."
Tim Spahr, director of the Minor Planet Center in Cambridge, Massachusetts, says that objects as small as 20 or 30 metres across may be capable of doing damage on Earth. He warned that it was inevitable that these will go unnoticed: "If you want to find the smallest objects you have to build more, larger telescopes. A survey that finds all of the 20-metre objects will cost probably multiple billions of dollars."

This quatrain is definitely addressed to an individual despite commentators' efforts to apply it to the world, mankind, France, Europe, the economy, or as an obscure warning against the practice of alchemy. The original ta (your) is often replaced with sa (its) for this purpose. It is not impossible that Sun Myung Moon, the apparent subject of line 1, will still be the spiritual head of the Unification Church in 2008. Born in 1920, he is currently 81 and will be 88 by that year (the late Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran's spiritual leader, was 89 when he died in June 1989). However, should Moon die, the Church will be taken over by his eldest son, Hyo Jin Moon, who might be persuaded to assume his father's name as his title.
Sun Moon has a large following in Europe as well as in America and South Korea. The Unification Church apparently will be tolerated under Chirac's government as a powerful Christian sect. It is clear with all the references to "good" and "well" times, great "abundance," and "fortune" that this event will occur during a time of peace. For some reason the asteroid collision will shaken the faith of Reverend Moon's worshippers and destroy their confidence in the Unification Church. It is even possible that an asteroid fragment in the "same state as the seventh rock" -- if not the asteroid itself -- will cause the physical destruction of the Church's European headquarters. Moon (or his son) and a large number of his followers, in other words, may take a direct hit.
Some commentators refer to this asteroid as the "seventh rock (of the Apocalypse)." However, no such term exists in Revelation or any other biblical prophecy. St. John the Revelator simply calls Toutatis, or whatever the planetoid's name will be, "a great mountain burning with fire." The number seven is probably Nostradamus' fashion of reminding the reader that "the great mountain" will be "seven stades round."
This quatrain is clearly a judgment of the Unification Church and the heretical influence it will hold over many Americans and Europeans during the war years and their aftermath. It is not impossible that the Pope, by marrying the Anglican Communion, and thus, all Protestant beliefs with Catholicism, will give undue support for Moon's church -- a cult which has already courted and lobbied six U.S. presidents and received support and recognition by major evangelical leaders such as Jerry Falwell. The holocaust from space will be divine judgment, especially against southern and eastern Europe, and the spiritual capitals of Rome and Jerusalem, for encouraging millions to worship this man as a messiah.
Who will the real Antichrist be -- the one called the "man of sin" and "the beast"? Find out who he will be, by what name he will be called, where he will rise to power, and how far into the future this will happen in my book Nostradamus and the Final Age.
|Rev. Moon hurt in copter
crash, officials say -- 13 Unification Church members,
including members of Moon's family, were also injured,
fire official says
July 19, 2008
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- A helicopter carrying the Rev. Sun Myung Moon crashed into a mountainside Saturday as it attempted an emergency landing, injuring the founder of the Unification Church and 15 others, officials said.
The Rev. Sun Myung Moon and members of his family were hurt in the accident, a fire official says. Moon, 88, was slightly injured in the crash, a hospital official said. Members of Moon's family, including his wife, were also hurt, and one person suffered a serious back injury, fire official Kim Wu-jong said.
The S-92 helicopter was carrying 16 people, including 13 church members, when it crashed and burst into flames, the transportation ministry said.
Moon and the others were treated at the nearby church-affiliated Cheongshim Hospital in Gapyeong, about 37 miles northeast of Seoul, hospital official Park Sung-kwon said.
Moon received an X-ray and his condition was not serious, Park said. No details of his injury were given, but the church said in a brief statement on its Web site that Moon and the others were "safe."
The transportation ministry said the accident took place as the helicopter made an emergency landing due to bad visibility during heavy rain. The exact cause of the crash was still under investigation, police said.
Church official Kim Dae-yeol said the helicopter was flying to Cheongshim Hospital from southern Seoul. The Gapyeong area has several church-affiliated facilities including a museum and schools.
Moon founded the Seoul-based Unification Church in the 1950s and the conservative Washington Times newspaper in 1982. His church owns hundreds of companies around the world, including the United Press International news agency.
The church's doctrine is a mixture of Christian, Confucian and traditional Korean values, and Moon's followers believe he came into the world to complete the work of Jesus Christ. In 2004, Moon was the center of a coronation ceremony in Washington at which he declared himself the Messiah. He also became widely known for performing mass weddings of followers.
COMMENTS (7/19/08): I have waited through the long dark corridors of nearly two decades to see this prediction fulfilled ... and fulfilled it nearly has been, as projected, in July 2008.
This prediction for disaster striking Sun Myung Moon, his family, and his Unification Church was first inked to paper in 1992 and printed out on the first finished draft of my book, Nostradamus and the Final Age, on a dot-matrix printer in October 1993. Also appearing in the same chapter was my prediction of the death, what I believed would be the murder, of Princess Diana. At that time I had no idea when either of these events would occur. I would not discover the mathematical patterns running throughout history, current events, and the future, which I would call The Base 7 System until January 1996. At that time, I was able to project Diana's death as likely occurring in August 1997 and possible destruction for Sun Myung Moon, his family, and his Church, in July 2008.
The book was produced and very slightly updated in e-book format on CD ROM in September 2000 at which time Moon was 81 years old (as can be seen in the text of the prediction above). I sold several dozen of these discs internationally in 2001 and 2002. I am still deliberating on selling another updated version via traditional book sales or at an online publisher.
So now we must ask ourselves, was this helicopter crash the 'judgment' passed upon Moon and his followers? Or was it merely a warning? Depending on which, the prediction status clearly is PARTIALLY FULFILLED or else a CLOSE CALL.
I have to tell you people, if I were you I'd be scared as hell. This event was linked by Nostradamus to an asteroid striking the earth. If this was a warning, the next time disaster strikes the Unification Church, an asteroid impact may not be far behind.
We have been warned: a time of reckoning is near for all false religions, whether it be the Unification Church, Scientology, Kabbalah, or any of many apostatic, heretical, and abominable cults and sects. Destruction comes soon for these leaders of folly and lovers of death, and for all who follow and worship them. Their "ruin" advances from "heaven" (outer space) and none shall escape out of hand. Mourn also for the innocent whose blood shall be shed, for the judgment that comes is very terrible.

Now, with a recent repeat of both the Jack the Ripper and Jack the Stripper killings in Ipswich, England, on the American side of the pond, this sex-crazed fiend may leave as many as seven dead in one single night of sheer, screaming terror before he is captured in July 2008.
mass shooting in Pittsburgh is reminiscent of Richard
mass murder of eight nurses in 1966
and of the mass slaughter of 14 women students by an anti-feminist fanatic in Montreal in 1989," said
Katherine van Wormer, co-author of "Death by Domestic Violence: Preventing the Murders and
the Murder-Suicides" (Praeger, 2009), in an e-mail.
these mass killings have in common is that they are misogynistic
or about hatred of women in
general. These men are also suicidal, therefore filled with self-hatred as well. Over 90 percent of
murder-suicides in general tend to be male-on-female crimes, many being acts of revenge."
|LA Fitness shooting leaves 3 women
dead, 10 injured
2009-08-05 18:59:26 (GMT)
Three women are dead after a lone gunman entered a Pittsburgh area LA Fitness gym and opened fire. Allegheny County Police confirm at least 10 other victims were injured at the LA Fitness shooting. A Pittsburgh law firm employee entered a Pennsylvania LA Fitness and opened fire killing 3 women confirms Allegheny County police officials.
Pittsburgh, PA A late Tuesday evening workout session ended in horror for members at an LA Fitness gym outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, when a lone gunman entered and opened fire. Law enforcement sources state 48 year-old, LA Fitness gym member, George Sodini, entered the popular nationwide workout studio, turned off the lights, and fired 50 rounds of ammunition into the exercise studio, as reported by CNN early Wednesday morning.
The fatal murder suicide shooting left 3 women dead and at least 10 other victims injured after Sodinis killing rampage before he turned his weapon on himself. Allegheny County Police officials reported Sodini, a systems analyst for K&L Gates LLP, a Pittsburgh law firm, entered the gym at about 8 p.m., walked into the aerobics studio where an active class was in session, and unloaded ammunition from multiple handguns.
The shooting victims were transported to numerous area hospitals by Pittsburgh area emergency medical services (EMS) personnel for treatment of their critical injuries by doctors and nurses.
UPMC Mercy Hospital and Allegheny General Hospital confirmed victims were treated in their emergency room and trauma center. Sodini a member of LA Fitness, a privately owned, Irvine, California based, American health club with over 1.5 million members across 16 U.S. states and Canada, as of 2008, was an employee of K&L Gates law firm since 1999 in the finance department. K&L Gates is an international law firm boasting 1,900 lawyers on three continents.
According to K&L Gates Internet website http://www.klgates.com/Home.aspx, the main areas of litigation experience and expertise are listed as follows: corporate and financial services law, intellectual property suits, litigation and dispute resolution, policy and regulatory legal expertise, and real estate cases.
A press conference is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The names of the victims were released by a county medical examiner Wednesday morning as reported by the Philadelphia Inquirer: Heidi Overmier, 46, of Carnegie; Elizabeth Gannon, 49, of Pittsburgh; and Jody Billingsley, 37, of Mount Lebanon.
Heather L. Ryan, legal news reporter for Pennsylvania personal injury lawyers and Pittsburgh victims.
The dead are Heidi Overmier, 46 [L], Jody Billingsley, 37 [CTR], and Elizabeth Gannon, 49 [R]
Heidi Overmier was one of the shooting victims. The 46-year-old, from Pittsburgh suburb of Carnegie, was a sales manager at Kennywood, the area's largest amusement park. Colleagues remembered her as a behind-the-scenes orchestrator who helped keep the park operating - from coordinating school trips to organizing special events.
The Allegheny Medical Examiner's Office said Overmier died of bullet wounds of her neck and trunk.
Jody Billingsley, who was also murdered in the health club massacre, was originally from Ohio and had lived in a quiet neighborhood south of Pittsburgh for the past decade. The 37-year-old traveled frequently for her job as a medical-supply salesperson. Neighbors said she sometimes expressed homesickness for her home state.
In the darkness, several of Sodini's bullets ripped into Billingsley's chest. An ambulance rushed her to the emergency room of St. Clair Hospital in Mt. Lebanon, where she died 45 minutes after being shot.
Elizabeth "Betsy" Gannon was also killed in the attack. Gannon, 49, of the suburban community of Green Tree, lived most of her life in the two-story brick house where she grew up. She loved to exercise and was frequently seen walking her dog around the neighborhood.
Gannon died from gunshot wounds in the neck and extremities, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office. Friends said Gannon, an avid runner who worked out several times a week, did not know the shooter, George Sodini of Scott.
One can appreciate the horrific nature and potential totality of Sodini's murderous attack even more when one realises that four of the nine women who were injured could have easily been counted among the fatalities. Potentially, the death toll could have been seven rather than three.
4 gym shooting victims still hospitalized - PITTSBURGH (AP) - August 7, 2009 -- Four of the women wounded in a shooting rampage at a suburban Pittsburgh health club remain hospitalized. Two women are listed in fair condition at Allegheny General Hospital. Twenty-two-year-old Heather Sherba of Collier Township expects to be discharged Friday. The aerobics instructor, 26-year-old Mary Primis of Moon Township, has been moved out of intensive care. Two other women are being treated at UPMC Mercy Hospital. One remained in serious condition Friday, while the other is listed as fair ...
The wounded are: Lisa Fleeher, 27, critically injured, Ashley Ferragonio, 23, released from UPMC Mercy on Wednesday, Jackquilyne Gallagher, 25, seriously injured, Srimeenakish Sankar, 31, seriously injured, Gretchen Lewis, 26, critically injured, Melina Williams, 22, seriously injured, Mary Primis, 26, critically injured, Heather Sherba, 22, seriously injured, and Stephanie Latusick, 33, treated and released Tuesday night.
INJURED: Mary Primis, 26 [L], Jackquilyne Gallagher, 25 [CTR], and Ashley Ferragonio, 23 [R]
Pregnant dance instructor was shot. As she lay in a pool of blood Tuesday night at L.A. Fitness in Collier, dance instructor Mary Primis held her breath and pretended she was dead. She had just been shot twice and could hear the shooter move about the room where she had been teaching a Latin dance class. "She wanted him to think she was dead," Primis' husband, Alex, said Wednesday at Allegheny General Hospital, where his wife was recovering in the trauma intensive care unit. Primus, 26, had a major worry: She is 10-weeks pregnant with her first child. Yet the two bullets that hit her one in the right shoulder blade and another in the left arm missed the baby and, other than a lung, any major organs.
At Allegheny General Hospital, doctors were amazed that the bullet that had slammed into her back didn't kill her, saying its trajectory should have carried it to her lungs and heart. Instead, her shoulder blade acted as a shield, deflecting the round into her ribs and lower back. The couple got more good news when a sonogram showed that the baby, due early next year, was fine. "She could've, almost should've, died from it. It's a miracle she's alive, and the fact the baby seems OK too is twice (a miracle)," Alex said.
Jackquilyne Gallagher, 25, was in an aerobics class in a suburban Pittsburgh health club Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2009, when a gunman walked in and shot three women to death and injured nine others before turning the weapon on himself. Gallagher was one of the nine. The 25-year-old accountant was hit twice. One bullet shattered her pelvis. A bullet remains lodged in her side, and she has bullet fragments in her body.
On "The Early Show Saturday Edition," Gallagher said she saw Sodini, 48, walk into the room. "He brought in two duffel bags," she told co-anchor Erica Hill. "But there are weights and Pilates mats in the back of the room. So, it's not unusual for men to come in and grab some weights or a Pilates mat and exit.
"After a while, he was shuffling through his bag and then there was -- we were facing the front of the classroom, again, not thinking anything of it, and then the lights went out. As soon as the lights went out, it was uncommon, and our instructor was in the front of the room. I turned to look and that's when I noticed he had two guns in his hand and you could see the fire. From there, I just ran."
Gallagher got on the floor.
"It was only two minutes, the whole ordeal," she continued. "I ran to the front of the room near the exit. I don't really think I knew I was running toward the emergency exit. But I laid down and I laid on my stomach. I thought, 'That's the best way to go; if I'm gonna get shot, you know, your back is gonna save you more than the front of you,' and I just played dead. I think we all did the same thing."
"Of course," Gallagher admitted, she was worried she wouldn't make it out of the classroom alive, "But, you know, I couldn't shut my eyes or anything. I had to keep conscious. I had to keep my mind on other things besides the fact that I'm shot to survive."
State Rep. Jesse White, a Cecil resident, said Wednesday that Ashley Ferragonio had suffered a shoulder wound during the shooting attack. She is a 2003 graduate of Canon-McMillan High School.
INJURED: Gretchen Lewis, 26 [L], Melina Williams, 22 [CTR], and Heather Sherba, 22 [R]
Melina Williams of Collier hid behind a punching bag, then ran toward an emergency door. A bullet hit her below her right kneecap. She made it outside with the help of a friend who was uninjured.
Heather Sherba, 22, did not want her mouth photographed because her right front tooth was hit by a bullet during the shooting rampage. Seconds later, another hit her right thigh. "I knew I had to get out of there," said Sherba. "I crawled all the way to the door, got up and just started running. I was just afraid of getting killed."
COMMENTS (8/25/09): "This mass shooting in Pittsburgh is reminiscent of Richard Speck's mass murder of eight nurses in 1966 and of the mass slaughter of 14 women students by an anti-feminist fanatic in Montreal in 1989." -- Katherine van Wormer.
Richard Speck is the basis of the above prediction "Sorority House Massacre." Now his name is invoked by psychologists and sociologists when making comparisons with George Sodini and his dark night of terror and death in a health club gymnasium. Sodini targeted women only ... a rare event in the United States (so far).
Indeed, the base 7 vector of July 2008 was arrived at using the infamous July 14, 1966 mass sex slayings of eight student nurses in a south Chicago dormitory by a vagrant merchant marine named Richard Speck as the only precedent in the USA for such a crime. High on alcohol and drugs, Speck threatened and attacked the women with a gun and a butcher's knife, bound and gagged them, then, over the course of the night, raped each one, strangling and/or stabbing each one dead afterwards. A ninth student nurse, Cora Amurao, escaped to testify against him by hiding under a bed while her housemates were killed.
Detectives would find Gloria Davy dead on the sofa, naked and sexually assaulted. Upstairs, Pamela Wilkening had been gagged and stabbed through the heart. Suzanne Farris was in a pool of blood, having been strangled with her own stockings and stabbed 18 times. Mary Ann Jordan was stabbed three times. Nina Schmale was stabbed in a pattern around her broken neck. Valentina Paison's throat had been cut. Merlita Gargullo had been stabbed and strangled. Patricia Matusek was also strangled. The women had been so disfigured that the director of nurses was able to recognize only 3 of them.
What made this case even more horrific as we look back over that year is that only a few weeks later, on August 1, 1966, student Charles Whitman would climb a 27-storey tower at the University of Texas and shoot dead 15 people and wound 31 others before being shot and killed by Austin police. This event I predicted would repeat itself in some manner in August 2008 .... and it did, fifteen and a half months early on April 16, 2007, when lone gunman Seung-Hui Cho, a student, killed 32 people at Virginia Tech, also wounding 23, not only beating Whitman's kill record but nearly doubling it.
Nevertheless, the Speck "Student Nurse Murders" (aka "Richard Speck Sex Murders") and Whitman "Texas Tower Massacre" are unlikely to be forgotten anytime soon since they occurred only a few weeks apart and, thus, shocked the nation, helping to define the violent domestic climate in the United States during the summer of 1966.
The July 2008 vector was (6 x 7) 42 years later than the mid-July 1966 case, thus Sodini's murderous attack in early August 2009 was one year and three weeks later than it should have been.
We should not doubt that what occurred in LA several weeks ago was a mass sex slaying. George Sodini may not have raped, stabbed, and strangled his female victims to death over the course of the late evening and early morning hours of a single night, but sex was his motivation for killing three women and injuring nine others, four of them critically. One can appreciate the horrific nature and potential totality of Sodini's murderous attack even more when one realises that the four women who were so badly injured could have easily been counted among the fatalities. Potentially, the death toll could have been seven rather than three.
An exhaustive research of mass murder of exclusively female victims during a single 24-hour period by male civilian predators since the Second World War, murders not associated with military atrocities, yields very few cases. Richard Speck was the earliest and most infamous such predator in US history. A much later case, the execution-style shooting murders of five Amish school girls by Charles Carl Roberts IV, occurred on October 2, 2006; yet these were not women but very young girls, children between the ages of 6 and 13. Five more girls were critically injured and an eleventh potential victim, a nine-year-old girl, escaped before the slaughter. That was the only case of mass murder on a single day or night of females, females of any age, since the Speck slayings on US soil until almost three weeks ago.
Elsewhere, 14 female students were shot to death on campus by a mass murderer in Montreal, Quebec ("The Montreal Massacre") on December 6, 1989. Ten more women and four men were injured. The killer, Marc Lépine, age 25, announced he was targeting women when he shouted that he was "fighting feminism" as he seperated the males from the females in a classroom where the slayings initially began.
Earlier this year the same thing happened at a university in Stuttgart, Germany on March 11. Tim Kretschmer, age 17, shot dead eight female students, three female teachers and one male student (the male student appeared to have been killed because he had "gotten in the way"). The teenage gunman specifically targeted girls as he went on the rampage at his former school in Germany. Police said the death toll would have been even worse had it not been for the extraordinary sacrifice of the three woman teachers, who stood in Kretschmers way to protect their students.
I nearly considered the Stuttgart slayings as a possible fulfiillment of my prediction, but reconsidered because the event I had in mind would occur in the United States. However, because of the high body count in Germany, and also because there was another mass murder by shooting in Alabama in the same 24-hour period, I considered both events to be linked and a second fulfillment of the Charles Whitman Texas Tower Massacre.
Again, in the LA Fitness Center shootings, the number of dead could have been much higher than three. Easily the number could have been seven or eight if not for some sort of a miracle. The killer's decision to shoot at the women with the lights turned off may have spared Mary Primis, Jackquilyne Gallagher, Lisa Fleeher, Gretchen Lewis, and Heather Sherba from certain death. Had Sodina stalked and shot the women in the same manner as the university shootings of 1989, all 12 would be dead.
Thus, I must now consider my prediction PARTIALLY FULFILLED at around 70% to 75%. However, because Sodini's MO was a mass shooting, rather than rape, strangulation, and/or stabbing, we must continue to acknowledge the possibility that 1) another mass slaying or rash of serial killings against female university students may occur this year with those features and/or 2) the unsolved murders from last year and this year of female students who were raped, shot, or strangled may be connected and have been committed by the same person.
FINAL COMMENTS (2/8/11): The LA Fitness Center shootings was a sexually-motivated mass murder of women. It doesn't matter that the murderer, George Sodini, used a gun instead of a knife or a ligature. The fact that he did use a gun and also shut off the lights is the only reason the number of fatalities did not exceed three. Otherwise, he would have likely killed at least as many women as did Richard Speck (eight) or even all twelve of the women he shot. This was a PREDICTION FULFILLED, even though the victims were not medical students.
RATING: + 1.0
Even so, an uncanny number of female medical students were murdered on campus or not far from campus in 2008 and early 2009 in the same manner of Richard Speck. To this day, and possibly not since the Speck murders, there have not been so many nursing and other medical students killed during a given year. It is doubtful that the media or anyone else has noted this bizarre "coincidence" since it is not pertinent to any individual case. But regarding this prediction it is very important. Some of these murders remain unsolved; in other cases, such as the high profile murders of Brianna Denison or Eve Carson, the killers were captured and are standing trial or have been tried and sentenced.
As the number of cold cases began to accrue, I set out to try to prove many of the unsolved cases were connected by a serial killer. Regarding murders of women in 2008, 2009, and 2010, students (medical and non-medical) and non-students, in the region of West Virginia, Virgina, and the Carolinas, this may still be true. Time will tell.
But for the purposes of this prediction, it is the unbelievable number of medical students murdered on campus and near campus, many in a Speck MO manner, that we shall review below:

Denison: Majored in child psychology
In 2008, we began with the highly sensationalised sex slaying of Brianna Denison, age 19, who vanished in mid-January as she slept on the couch at a friend's off-campus house near an unlocked door. Her nude body was finally discovered in February with a pair of thong panties resting on her torso. The alluring beauty, who majored in child psychology, had been raped and strangled. Denison's murder looked like the work of a classic serial killer and fears such a killer was on the loose was to be reported by the media for many months to follow.
Fear of serial rapist turned killer has Reno college campus on alert
Monday, February 18, 2008
(02-18) 04:00 PST Reno -- The hunt for a serial rapist spread fear around a college campus Sunday after police linked a 19-year-old woman's death to at least two other attacks in the area. The woman's body was found in a field on Friday, nearly a month after she vanished from a home at the edge of the University of Nevada, Reno. Police said Brianna Denison had been abducted and strangled in what they called a sexually motivated crime.
Freshman Darryllyn Thomas, who lives in a dormitory two blocks away from the house, said the string of attacks has alarmed students. "A lot of students think he's going to do it again," Thomas said Sunday at the student union building. "Everybody is pretty scared. Students are carrying Tasers, pepper spray and bear spray. I'm very paranoid."
University President Milton Glick issued a statement urging students to take precautions. The attacks have led to expanded campus patrols and escorts, seminars on personal safety and the distribution of whistles to female students. "University police advise that you remain aware of your surroundings and avoid situations that put you at risk, such as walking alone at night or leaving doors and windows unlocked," Glick said.
Denison was a student at Santa Barbara City College in California. She was visiting her hometown over winter break and was last seen sleeping on a couch at a friend's rental house just off the Reno campus. Her body was found about 8 miles away. DNA evidence links Denison's kidnapping to two other attacks on women near the university late last year, police said. An earlier campus attack also could be related. In that incident, the attacker raped a woman at gunpoint in a garage where campus police park their cruisers.
Reno Deputy Police Chief Jim Johns has described the suspect as a serial rapist and expressed fear that "he may reoffend."
Senior Alix Frank, who lives 2 1/2 blocks from the house where Denison vanished, said she's carrying pepper spray. "I'm getting nervous because of the progression of the crimes," she said. "It hasn't destroyed my life with paranoia, but I'm definitely taking more precautions. I just hope they can make an arrest as soon as possible."
Denison family members said they would continue pushing for justice until a suspect is found and convicted. "We are not giving up," her aunt, Lauren Denison, told the Reno Gazette-Journal. "This shouldn't have happened. ... I know all of us, and the community, want to get our hands on him, but that's not realistic," she said.
A memorial with flowers, teddy bears and a photo of Denison drew visitors Sunday to the brush-covered field where her body was found in the city's south side. Blue ribbons hung in Denison's memory around the neighborhood where she was abducted, as well as outside the governor's mansion in Carson City. Her family has urged the community to place blue ribbons - her favorite color - around their homes until her burial. Funeral arrangements were pending.
"We will be honoring that request at the mansion and encourage all Nevadans to do the same," said Gov. Jim Gibbons, whose 20-year-old son, Jimmy, was a classmate of Denison's at Reno High School.
Fears of a serial killer still on the loose ended when suspect James Michael Biela, 27, of Sparks, Nevada, (L) was arrested on November 25, 2008, and charged on December 1, with the abduction and sex strangulation slaying of university coed Brianna Denison [R] as well as a string of other rapes in the university area. A DNA sample was collected from Biela; he had previously been arrested in 2001 for threatening his former girlfriend's neighbor with a knife.
In a press conference held by the Reno Police Department on Wednesday, November 26, 2008, it was confirmed that the DNA collected from Biela matched the DNA found at the crime scene, positively linking him to both the murder of Brianna Denison and a previous sexual assault.
It was reported that Biela had used thong panties to strangle Brianna Denison ... the same panties that were found on her naked body in February. Denison officially died of "asphyxiation due to strangulation by ligature." The ligature marks on her neck were the same size and shape as the strap on a missing pair of her best friend's panties.
On Thursday, May 27, 2010 James Michael Biela was found guilty. The jury returned a guilty verdict for all counts against Biela. Those charges include kidnapping, sexual assault, and murder. On Wednesday, June 2, 2010, the jury that convicted Biela of his crimes handed down the sentence of death for the murder of Brianna Denison.
MURDERS: Eve Carson & Lauren Burk
Although Lauren Burk was not a medical student, her murder is linked with that of Eve Carson's by time, location, circumstances, and an uncanny coincidence.
Eve Carson: Student president, majored in Biology, in the pre-medicine career path
On March 5, 2008, two coeds, Eve Carson and Lauren Burk, were found lying dead in the street over a nine-hour period, alarm bells begin to ring. Both were from the state of Georgia. Both had been shot multiple times. Both were apparently abducted before being killed. Burk's body was found naked and it became clear that she had been raped. Eve Carson was lightly clad in a T-shirt and sweat pants... strange, considering how cold it was in early March 2008. Due to the location of two of the bullet entry wounds, it remains debatable to this day as to whether she had been sexually molested or not. Carson was a premed student, and was also student president of her university.
Eve Carson met with then-candidate Barack Obama
Murders of Two College Students Mystify Police in Three States
Thursday, March 06, 2008
Detectives in three states on Thursday were hunting for clues in the mysterious shooting murders a day apart of two college coeds from Georgia.
Police in Auburn, Ala., said Thursday afternoon they are pursuing promising leads as they try to identify who killed 18-year-old Auburn University freshman Lauren A. Burk of Marietta on Tuesday night near campus.
The announcement came shortly after officials at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill said town police had identified the young woman found dead Wednesday near the campus as 22-year-old Eve Marie Carson, the popular president of UNC's student body.
Auburn police said Thursday that they hadn't turned up any evidence linking the two killings but were looking into a possible connection. "I don't have anything at this point to indicate that this is related," Auburn Assistant Chief of Police Tom Dawson said at a news conference. "I've had my investigators contact authorities there (Chapel Hill), but there's nothing to connect the two cases."
Detectives had several strong leads in Burk's murder and have established a state and federal task force to aid the investigation, Dawson said. Local media have reported that police are interviewing witnesses to the crime, as well as a few "persons of interest."
Burk was found with a single gunshot wound to the head around 9 p.m. Tuesday on Alabama Highway 147, three miles off campus. Police said her Honda Civic was discovered 20 minutes later engulfed in flames at the campus. Burk was taken to the hospital, where she died Tuesday night. Police haven't said whether Burk said anything before she died that could help them identify her killer.
Carson, of Athens, Ga., died from multiple bullet wounds, including one to the head. After responding to reports of gunfire, police discovered Carson lying dead in an intersection in a Chapel Hill residential neighborhood close to the university. Town authorities and school officials identified her body on Thursday. Police had no suspects and hadn't made any arrests, but they were looking for her car.
The communities of Marietta and Athens are about 70 miles apart.
Eve Carson's body was found at the intersection of Hillcrest Circle and Hillcrest Drive in Chapel Hill at approximately 5 a.m. on March 5, 2008. Police could not immediately identify the body, but at 9 a.m. on March 6, 2008 police investigators and the office of the medical examiner identified the body as that of Carson. Chapel Hill Police Chief Brian Curran said that Carson's death appeared to be a random act. Police recovered her car more than a mile away from her body after receiving a tip from a local witness. Police also released images from a security video of a person using Carson's ATM card.
Carson was shot several times including a shotgun blast to the head. According to a confidential informant to Chapel Hill police, both Demario James Atwater, 21, and Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr., 17, took turns shooting her.
Now Nancy Grace, Greta Van Susteren, and others had three dead college girls to talk about on their crime shows (Denison, Burk, and Carson). Speculation that a serial killer was on the loose and had claimed two more victims in one single night lasted for over a week until Carson's killers, suspects Demario James Atwater and Lawrence Alvin Lovette Jr. were arrested and in custody on March 12 and 13, 2008. Burk's murderer, Courtney Lockhart, was arrested three days after the March 5 slaying, but uncertainty hung over his arrest initially. Even though fears that the three murders were connected had been alleviated, parents continued breathing uneasily.
Carson was not carjacked as originally suspected. Instead, the two suspects, Atwater and Lovett Jr., took her from her home. They entered through an open door. The three departed in her Toyota Highlander for an A.T.M., where they used her pin number to withdraw cash. Then both suspects shot her to death in a street near her home. Neighbors reported hearing shots at 5 a.m.
The murder of Eve Carson also became a cause célèbre for both white and black racists who either perceived Carson as a naive, liberal, brain-washed white victim vulnerable to a black -on- white hate crime or as a willing white victim seeking thrills and a kind of immortality by enticing and setting up young black men to commit rape and murder. Both sides often cited for comparison the under-reported case of Channon Christian and boyfriend Christopher Newsom, both abducted, raped, tortured, and murdered by four blacks in January 2007. These extreme views have since been largely dismissed as racist by the vast majority of the public.
On September 23, 2010 Demario James Atwater received a sentence of life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for the charge of first degree murder, along with a concurrent sentence of 23 to 29 years for armed robbery, kidnapping and firearms charges. He was ordered to pay $212,947.10 in restitution. Atwater will serve his sentence in federal custody. Laurence Alvin Lovette Jr. will go on trial later this year (2011).
January 23, 2011 (AJC.com): Courtney Lockhart, of Smiths Station, Ala., admitted on tape to abducting, robbing and holding a gun that fired and killed Lauren Burk on March 4, 2008. Burk was found naked and dying after being shot in the back about four miles from the Auburn University campus, where she was a freshman. Lockhart confessed to abducting and raping her in his car before shooting and leaving her for dead. After delivering a guilty verdict on the charge of capital murder, a Lee County jury recommended Courtney Lockhart be sentenced to life in prison for killing 2007 Walton High graduate and Auburn University freshman Lauren Burk.
Zimmermann: Majored in medical biology
In April 2008 the body of Brittany Zimmerman, who was majoring in medical microbiology and immunology, was discovered after a frantic 911 call to police. Zimmermann had been stabbed to death in her off-campus apartment, the door and room revealing signs of forced entry. Later reports indicated that she had also been strangled. Sexual assault may also have occurred, but this has not been made public officially.
There had already been two break-ins and sexual assaults of female students in 2007, and a murder of a male student, Joel Marino, in January 2008 at UW-Madison campus residences. Marino's killer was later arrested and charged. There had also been another female student murdered in June 2007 who was a student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Little has been reported since the body of Kelly Nolan, 22, was discovered in a wooded area 11 miles from campus on July 9, 2007, two weeks after leaving a Madison bar. Police declared her death a murder, but no details surrounding the case, including cause of death, have ever been shared with the news media.
There is good chance the Kelly Nolan and Brittany Zimmermann murders may be connected. Oddly enough, both are now cold cases. The 911 call bungle (which cost Ms Zimmermann her life), let alone two bungled murder investigations of pretty coeds attending the same college murdered nine months apart, might be good reason not to send your children to the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Third Student Death Shakes University
Tuesday April 8, 2008
The discovery of the body of a University of Wisconsin-Madison junior last week, the third death near the campus in less than a year, has put students, the authorities and the entire community on alert. Adding to the concern is the fact the police have no suspect and are releasing very little information to the public. Last week, a few blocks from the university campus, police found Brittany Sue Zimmermann in the apartment she shared with her boyfriend. Authorities are not telling the media how Zimmermann died, but the Wisconsin State Journal reported that she had been stabbed.
Also adding to the community's concern is the fact that Zimmermann was killed in the middle of the day in a nice neighborhood composed of large older homes popular as student rentals and newly constructed upscale condominiums.
Last June, Kelly Nolan, who was working in Madison during the summer, disappeared after a night of bar-hopping with her friends. Her body was found four days later about 10 miles south of town.
In January, Joel Marino, 31, was found stabbed to death outside his home. Police believe that Marino was trying to crawl to a nearby hospital. Like Zimmermann, he was stabbed to death in the middle of the day.
"There's some similarities, but we don't have anything to suggest definitively at this point that it's the same person or persons," Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain told reporters. "That's one avenue among the many that will be looked at as both cases are analyzed."
But police still have no suspects in any of the three unsolved murders, DeSpain said.
Zimmermann called 911, but no one came
Isthmus- The Daily Page
Madison police believe Brittany Zimmermann called 911 before she was stabbed and beaten to death inside her Doty Street apartment, but the 911 Center failed to send help after erroneously concluding the call was a mistake. The 21-year-old UW-Madison student's body, with multiple stab wounds to the chest and blunt force trauma to the head, was discovered at 1:08 p.m. on April 2 by Zimmermann's fiancé. The scene was such a mess that he initially believed Zimmermann had been shot.
Zimmermann's murder is the fifth unsolved Madison homicide in the past 10 months. Two have occurred downtown, inside homes, during the day, apparently by strangers.
Four weeks after Zimmermann was murdered, her killer or killers remain at large, and little is known about the investigation. But Isthmus has been able to confirm several new details.
The most significant is that the 911 Center received a call from Zimmermann before she was killed, did not dispatch police, and then did not immediately or accurately inform the Police Department about the call after cops found her body, law enforcement officials tell Isthmus. Sources suggest the center may have made a call-back to a wrong number, where the person who answered assured that no crisis was occurring. One source says cops might have been better situated to make a quick arrest had mistakes not been made by the 911 Center.
Over the past two and a half weeks, the 911 Center has refused requests for basic information about the calls. This week, Joe Norwick, director of the Dane County 911 Center since July, declined further opportunities to comment after being provided with a written summary of parts of this story. In an email, Norwick said he was basing his refusal on a request from the Madison Police Department to withhold all information "pertaining to this matter" because release would "seriously impair" the murder investigation.
Madison police officials vigorously dispute this. While declining to call the 911 Center's action a cover-up, they suggested that Norwick is improperly using the department as an excuse not to own up to his agency's mistakes.
Zimmermann, a small-town girl who dreamed of becoming a doctor, graduated with distinction from Marshfield High School in 2005. At the UW, she majored in medical microbiology and immunology, and was planning to enroll in medical school after graduating next spring.
Her mother, Jean Zimmermann, politely declines to talk in detail about her daughter's death. "There are just so many things we don't know right now," she says. Zimmermann's obituary describes her fiancé as "the love of her life," and the two were planning to wed in Hawaii. Says police spokesman Joel DeSpain, "This was a girl who walked the straight line in life."
This week, police said the Zimmermann case has continued to net leads in the Joel Marino investigation, and that both cases are active. No direct connections have been established between the two. Marino, 31, was stabbed at about 1 p.m. on Jan. 28 inside his home on West Shore Drive along Monona Bay, about three blocks south of Brittingham Park (the Zimmermann apartment is three blocks northeast).
Police also continue to investigate the murder of Kelly Nolan, a college student who disappeared on June 23, 2007, after a night of drinking on State Street. Nolan's decomposing body was found 16 days later in a wooded area in the town of Dunn, where police believe she was killed.
The murder of Brittany Zimmermann remains unsolved and will soon officially be considered a "cold case." Too much time was spent focusing on litigation surrounding the bungled 911 call and not on the murder case itself. Theories that the murder was committed by a vagrant or group of vagrants led nowhere. The most recent lead, reported on December 13, 2010, was that Zimmermann's murder may have been connected by DNA to an "unknown accomplice" involved in a bar burglary in the area three months later. However, this has since been dismissed by police as a "false lead." Once again, the investigation is leading absolutely nowhere but to the cold case files.
It was Friday night of June 23, 2007 when 22-year-old college student Kelly Nolan left her home to meet friends at a bar in Madison, Wisconsin. Police say she and three girlfriends spent the evening at a bar in the State Street area of Madison. About 11:30 p.m., Nolan and her friends separated, because her friends wanted to go home, and Nolan continued on to another bar. It is unclear exactly whom Nolan was with afterward.
Two weeks after she went missing that night, on July 9, 2007, her body was found in a wooded area on private property 11 miles from where she'd last been seen. Police soon afterward declared that Kelly Nolan had been murdered.
However, to this very day, Nolan's cause of death (strangled, stabbed, shot, etc) and condition of her body (clothed, partially clothed, nude, bruised, signs of ligatures anywhere, presence of drugs in her body or near her corpse, raped, sexually assaulted, etc) have never been revealed. There have been no suspects in her death.
Her killer has never been caught and is out there ... free to kill again. The Nolan case, like the Zimmermann case, is very, very cold and getting colder by the day ....
Thus, Kelly Nolan and Britanny Zimmermann may well be linked as victims of the same murderer ... a possible serial killer who stalked his victims in Madison, Wisconsin.
The big picture in Madison, Wisconsin:
22-year-old Kelly Nolan went missing after a night of drinking near State Street on June 23, 2007, and was found slain on July 9, 2007, in a wooded area of Fitchburg, Wisconsin. Joel Marino was found collapsed in the alleyway near his home as he tried to reach St. Mary's Hospital just yards away after having been stabbed in a stranger-invasion January 28, 2008. Brittany Zimmermann was murdered in an eerily similar manner on April 2, 2008, in another apparent stranger-invasion. A botched 911 call ignited outrage and became the centre of the investigation into her murder. Unfortunately, as focus on the 911 call took precedence, search for her killer became neglected and turned Zimmermann's murder into the second cold case of the university area. Madison police have kept both the Nolan and Zimmermann cases largely shrouded in secrecy. Marino's alleged killer has since been arrested and placed on trial.
Yarmolenko: Majored in public health
On May 5, 2008, Irina Yarmolenko, a student majoring in public health at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte was found strangled dead beside her car on the banks of the Catawba River several hours after finishing an exam and departing by car for Mount Holly to take photographs. Autopsy results later revealed a nylon strap, a bungee cord and a sweatshirt drawstring were found tightly tied around Yarmolenko's neck, and all three were tested for DNA evidence. It was later revealed she had been raped.
Dead at Crash Scene Was Murdered
May 9, 2008
A 20-year-old North Carolina college student found dead next to her car at the edge of a wooded river embankment was murdered, authorities announced Thursday.
A jet skier on the Catawba River spotted Ira Yarmolenko's body around 1:15 p.m. Monday. She was in the grass next to the open door of her 1998 Saturn, which had crashed into a tree stump at the water's edge. Police announced Thursday that she was asphyxiated before she died. Preliminary autopsy results found that Irina "Ira" Yarmolenko, a sophomore at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, died of asphyxiation, David Belk, police chief in Mount Holly, N.C., said at a press conference.
A jet skier on the Catawba River spotted Yarmolenko's body around 1:15 p.m. Monday. She was in the grass next to the open door of her 1998 Saturn, which had crashed into a tree stump at the water's edge. "There's a car that's run off the embankment and a body laying there," a frightened caller told a 911 dispatcher. "I don't know if they're alive or not."
Belk, who this morning was responding to a possible tornado that touched down during severe weather overnight, said Thursday that he did not yet know whether Yarmolenko was sexually assaulted before her murder. He declined to provide details about the condition of her body. "That's the part I'm not going to talk about," he said. "That's the part we're going to leave for investigators and the person responsible."
Yarmolenko was last seen on campus at 9:45 a.m. Monday, when she completed an exam. At 10:18 a.m. she went to a local credit union. At 10:50 a.m. she stopped by Jackson Java's, a coffee shop where she worked as a barista, though she wasn't scheduled to work that day. She was traveling alone in both instances. Belk said that authorities also confirmed that she made a drop-off to the "Goodwill" that morning.
The timeline between when Yarmolenko left the coffee shop and when she was found several hours later remains a mystery. Yarmolenko and her Saturn made the roughly 30 minutes ride from the Charlotte campus to Mount Holly, a small town northwest of the city just over the county line. "We don't have any information from 10:50 a.m. Monday until shortly after 1 p.m. when we were called out to the riverbank," Belk said in an interview with ABC News.
In December 2008, Mark Carver, 40, and Neal Cassada Jr., 54, were arrested and charged with first-degree murder and conspiracy. Both men, who were cousins, denied the charges and emphatically maintained their innocence. Carvers and Cassadas DNA was found inside of Yarmolenkos car, but not on the any of the three ligatures used to strangle her to death. According to a document filed in Gaston County asking for modified bond for Neal Cassada Jr., DNA evidence found on 20-year-old Ira Yarmolenko's skin, under her fingernails and on the items used to strangle her was not a match to Cassada's DNA when tested at two separate times by the State Bureau of Investigation. Autopsy results said a nylon strap, a bungee cord and a sweatshirt drawstring were found around Yarmolenko's neck, and all three were tested for DNA evidence. Again, no DNA match was found for either Cassada or Carver.
In February 2009, Carver and Cassada were released on a reduced bond of $100,000 from the Gaston County Jail and placed on electronic house arrest. Their release on bond by itself suggested frustration with what evidence existed in the case and lack of sufficient DNA matches. Had no DNA been found in the car, it is doubtful either of the men would have had to face trial.
On October 10, 2010, Cassada, who was scheduled to go on trial for murder the following day, died in his home of an apparent heart attack. Family members maintain he was looking forward to the trial so he could clear his name. In addition questions were being raised about the handling of DNA evidence at the SBI Crime Lab in Raleigh, an issue still not resolved at this writing. Gaston County District Attorney Locke Bell dropped all charges against Cassada the next day. Carver is to be tried sometime in 2011.
Carver's attorney insists there is nothing that ties Carver to Yarmolenko's body other than DNA found in the car. Carver's attorney also said that someone else's DNA was found at the scene. There had been speculation in 2009 of a potential third person who might have been involved, possibly a teacher at the university.
It is possible Carver and Cassada found the car and the body, looked over the car, getting their DNA on it in the process, and decided not to report the murder for fear of being suspected of the crime.
If Carver is found innocent during his trial due to lack of substantial evidence, that would mean the murder of Irina Yarmolenko is still unsolved and the real killer still at large: yet another "cold case."
Ganguzza: Was completing Masters in Mental
In June 2008, Nicole Ganguzza, who was completing her Masters in Mental Health Counseling, was found raped and strangled near a jogging path in Florida. Of all the murder cases of university students in 2008 and well after, there have been more false leads and false suspects linked to Ganguzza's slaying made public than any other.
Grad Student Jogger Found Dead
June 12, 2008
An Orlando graduate student who disappeared during an evening jog was found dead Tuesday, turning what began as an intense ground search into an all-out manhunt for a killer who may be tied a pair of recent attacks on female joggers in the same area, Florida officials said.
The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed late last night that the body of 26-year-old Nicole Ganguzza was discovered at 5:15 p.m., about 24 hours after she'd driven to a local park for an evening jog on her own and failed to return. Her husband called 911 and reported her missing, triggering a search that began Tuesday night and continued through Wednesday. A team of investigators searching the area found her body 100 yards from a running trail in Jay Blanchard Park, which Ganguzza often used, Jeff Williamson of the Orange County Sheriff's Office told ABC News Tuesday.
Authorities believe Ganguzza was abducted before the murder and are investigating whether she may have been sexually assaulted, Jim Solomon, the Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman, told ABC News this morning. An autopsy has been been scheduled to determine the cause of death.
Authorities investigating Ganguzza's death are considering a possible link to two other unsolved 2006 attacks on women jogging in the same area. In both of those cases, the women were able to fight off their attackers during attempted rapes, and composite sketches made based on the two victims' descriptions shared striking similarities, according to Solomon. "We had cases where women were attacked," Solomon said, citing one in which a female jogger was targeted during a morning run.
Despite the composite sketches, Solomon said, the person or persons responsible were never apprehended. "You can only surmise what their intentions were," he said.
Ganguzza's husband tried calling her around 7 p.m. Monday, an hour after she left their house. By 9 p.m., he had called 911 to report his wife missing. Investigators became concerned that she may have been the victim of foul play after recovering Ganguzza's black Mitsubishi Eclipse in the park's parking lot Tuesday.
The University of Central Florida confirmed to ABC News that Ganguzza was a master's degree candidate in the university's marriage and family therapy program. She had enrolled as a student in January 2006. "The entire UCF family mourns the tragic loss of one of our own, and our most heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with Nicole's family, friends and classmates," the university wrote in a statement.
Police may be close to suspect in joggers slaying (false alarm)
March 24, 2009
NEW YORK (CNN) Nicole Ganguzza was a newlywed in grad school at the University of Central Florida when she was dragged off a trail and strangled to death while jogging in a park in June. Ganguzza, 26, was close to earning her masters degree in marriage and family therapy. She was looking forward to having children of her own.
She left class on June 10 at about 5:35 p.m. Ten minutes later, she called husband Brendan Ganguzza and told him she was going jogging at Jay Blanchard Park, not far from the universitys campus in Orlando, Florida. Brendan Ganguzza became worried at about 7 p.m. when he couldnt reach his wife on her phone. He searched the park for two hours, calling police at about 9 p.m.
Police combed the brush through the evening, and the search the next day grew to 60 people. Her body was found behind the post office, about two miles from where her Mitsubishi Eclipse was parked and just off the Econlockhatchee Trail where shed been jogging ...
Police say her killer deliberately hid her body in the brush along the trail. Investigators believe the killer either is from the area or is very familiar with the park and nearby campus. The Orange County Medical Examiner characterized Ganguzzas death as a homicide by strangulation without elaborating. It is not publicly known whether she had been sexually assaulted. We are keeping very quiet about this because this is information that only the killer would know, said Orange County sheriffs spokesman Carlos Padilla.
Last week, Ganguzzas family and friends asked anyone with information to come forward and help solve this cold case. They expressed relief that the police may have a break in the case and that an arrest could come soon. "I just hope they make an arrest soon in my wifes case, so they can get this dangerous guy off the streets, Brendan Ganguzza said.
Police executed a search warrant two weeks ago on the mobile home of a man who is considered a person of interest in the case. His home lies along the Econlockhatchee Trail ...
(ED NOTE: The "person of interest" was one of many "false leads" to come and one of many that occurred prior.)
Little has been revealed about the rape of Nicole Ganguzza other than the following statement by police when they thought they had evidence for an arrest on December 2, 2008:
"Investigators said her death was sexually motivated but won't confirm the cause or manner of death" and "Investigators at the Orange County Sheriff's Office said they have collected DNA from at least one suspect in the slaying of Nicole Ganguzza. Authorities said they're currently awaiting results of lab tests. The 26-year-old University of Central Florida graduate student was abducted, sexually assaulted and killed while jogging at Blanchard Park on the evening of June 10."
Two men have recently been arrested in December 2010 and charged with rapes in the area, including the dreaded East-Side Rapist. Joel Pappas, 30, whom police believe is the East-Side Rapist, has been charged with four rapes in the east side area of Orange County in Florida. However, four other rapes have not been linked to him, leading police to believe there may have been two East-Side rapists, with the other still at large. Authorities at the time of this writing are still investigating whether Pappas may have murdered Nicole Ganguzza. Since it is not absolutely certain that Pappas or the other East-Side Rapist was responsible, the actual killer may still be at large. Thus, for the time being, this remains an unsolved case that may yet be headed for the cold case files.
Woman Ambushed, Attacked Near Area Where Jogger's Body Found
July 8, 2008
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- A woman walking her dog was ambushed and attacked by a man hiding in some bushes not far from where a slain jogger's body was found last month. Investigators said the fourth attack on a woman in the same area of east Orange County involved a 25-year-old deaf woman Monday night. The woman was walking on Goldenrod Road near Toledo Street when a man jumped out of the bushes. The man attacked and attempted to drag her into the bushes until she was able to free herself. "She began to run away and he ripped her shirt -- to the point of almost ripping it off her body," Orange County sheriff's Sgt. Rich Mankewich said.
The man then chased the woman for about 600 yards to an apartment complex before the man turned around, the Orange County Sheriff's Office reported. An extensive search of the area included bloodhounds and an aviation unit but no one was found late Monday.
The attack happened just miles from where someone snatched and killed Nicole Ganguzza, 26, on June 10 while she jogged at Blanchard Park in Orange County. Ganguzza's body was found in a wooded area by a post office near the park. "People are snatching people from bushes, it is scary," a resident said.
Neighbors said they are familiar with Ganguzza's homicide and the "East-Side Rapist" who has been targeting female joggers in the area for the last few years.
Detectives are looking to see if the attack can be linked to the Ganguzza homicide but told Local 6's Jessica D'Onofrio that the attack has more similarities to the "East-Side Rapist" cases. "The girls are walking or jogging down the street and the guy jumps out of the bushes and attempts to grab them and drag them in," Mankewich said. "In all three cases now, the females were able to get away."
The attacker is described as being in his 30s, with a thin build. He was wearing dark shorts and a white T-shirt.
2008 was also a year when three, young Onslow County, NC career military women were murdered heinously, two in Fayetteville, NC. Two of the victims studied and worked in the medical field. The case of Spc. Megan Touma, a dental specialist with the U.S. Army, was not only macabre but had the additional bizarre element of a confession by the infamous "Zodiac Killer" (who was never caught).
Her nude body was found in a bathtub in a hotel room in Fayetteville, North Carolina, on June 22, 2008. She had been strangled.
On June 25, 2008, the Fayetteville Observer received an anonymous letter from a person claiming to be the killer. The letter was signed with a symbol identical to the signature the Zodiac Killer used in the late 1960s. Police said it was an attempt to mislead investigators.
Autopsy shows pregnant soldier strangled
Friday, December 19, 2008
FAYETTEVILLE (WTVD) -- The autopsy results for a pregnant soldier found slain in Fayetteville were released to the media Friday.
They show 23-year-old Spc. Megan L. Touma of Cold Spring, Kentucky died from "asphyxiation, strangling, drowning, or a combination of both."
Her decomposing body was found June 15 in the bathtub of a motel room. A cleaning person found the body and reported a towel had been shoved under the bathroom door from the outside. A Do Not Disturb sign was hung on the door of the hotel room ...
On June 30, 2008, Fayetteville police ruled that Touma's death was a homicide and said they were holding a "person of interest" in connection with the killing. On July 29, 2008, police arrested Edgar Patino and charged him with first-degree murder.
The search warrant shows that the last entry by hotel staff into the room where Touma was found occurred on June 17. Hotel staff had not disturbed the room since then because of a do-not-disturb door hanger. In the room they found the keys to an Enterprise Rent-A-Car vehicle. Touma was found in the bathtub in "an advanced state of decomposition".
Second Lieutenant Holley Wimunc graduated from St. Ambrose University in Iowa with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. The 24-year-old worked as a nurse at Womack Army Medical Center.
U.S. Army Lt. Holley Wimunc, 24, Wimunc was reported missing on July 10, 2008, after she did not report to work at the Womack Army Medical Center in Fort Bragg. A coworker who went to Wimunc's apartment to look for her found the apartment smoldering and smelled gasoline. When police were called, investigators found that her apartment had been intentionally set on fire. An apartment window had been shattered, and several bedrooms had burned. Winmunc was missing, and her car was still in the parking lot. Three days later, a charred body later found to be Wimunc's was discovered.
The charred remains of Wimunc were found on July 13, 2008, near Marine Corps base Camp Lejeune.
Autopsy: Army nurse was shot, buried
January 15, 2009
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. An autopsy report released Thursday shows a gunshot wound caused the death of Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc, a 24-year-old was a maternity-ward nurse at Fort Bragg's Womack Army Medical Center.
The report also showed Wimunc had been burned, then wrapped in an air mattress. Her dismembered remains were found in a shallow grave in July, a few days after her apartment in Fayetteville was found ablaze.
Her husband, Marine Cpl. John Wimunc, has been charged with first-degree murder, arson and conspiracy. The couple was getting divorced before she died. A fellow Marine, Lance Cpl. Kyle Alden, is charged as an accessory in her death.
Both men are scheduled to appear in a Cumberland County courtroom Jan. 27. John Wimunc's parents have said they stand by their son.
State Division of Forest Resources personnel found Holley Wimunc's remains July 13 when they responded to a fire in a wooded area near Camp Lejeune. Her body was badly burned and decomposed, and doctors had to use dental records to identify her.
She had been missing since July 10, the day her apartment was found burned. The fire was reported after a co-worker went to check on her when she didn't show up for work. Her car was in the parking lot, but she was gone.
Fort Bragg is about 115 miles northwest of coastal Camp Lejeune.
Cpl. John Patrick Wimunc was sentenced in
September 2010 to life in prison without parole after
pleading guilty to first-degree murder in the case. He
was stationed at Camp Lejeune. Holley Wimunc had
previously held a restraining order against her husband.
Another Marine, Kyle Alden, was charged
with arson and being an accessory after the fact to
murder. Superior Court Judge Gregory Weeks sentenced
Alden, a former Camp Lejeune Marine, to between three
years, eight months and five years, two months in prison.
Missing Fort Bliss Soldier May Be in Danger
Saturday, July 19, 2008
EL PASO, Texas Police say a female Fort Bliss soldier is missing and considered in danger after she did not report for work Friday and they found evidence of foul play inside her apartment.
Authorities were searching for Pfc. Jeneesa Lewis, 29, and her husband, Clinton. El Paso Officer Chris Mears said they believe the couple is together and want to talk to her husband, Clinton Lewis, 34, about the disappearance. Mears said investigators have been told by people who know the soldier that she and her husband, who is not in the Army, have been having marital problems.
Fort Bliss spokeswoman Jean Offutt said that when Jenessa Lewis didn't report to physical training or work, soldiers from the 5-52 Air Defense Artillery Battalion, 11th Brigade went to her off-post apartment to check on her. The apartment she shares with her husband was locked, prompting the call to police.
When police arrived just after noon, investigators found evidence of foul play, Mears said. Mears said neither Lewis nor her husband were at the apartment. He would not discuss details of what officers found in the apartment. Investigators are looking for a 2001 white Dodge Dakota pickup truck with Texas tags the couple is believed to be in.
Jeneesa Lewis has only been stationed at Fort Bliss for a few months and arrived at the post alone, Offutt said. According to Army records, Jeneesa Lewis' children are living in Tennessee.
Lewis is the fourth young female service member to go missing in recent months.
In January, the body of Marine Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, of Vandalia, Ohio, was found in the backyard of a fellow Marine. Cpl. Cesar Laurean fled to Mexico but was captured in April and is now charged with Lauterbach's murder. She was stationed at Camp Lejeune, N.C.
Last month, the decomposing body of Spc. Megan Touma, of Cold Spring, Ky., was found in a motel near Fort Bragg, N.C. No arrests have been made in that case.
Earlier this month, Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc, of Dubuque, Iowa, was found dead three days after a suspicious fire was discovered at her Fayetteville, N.C., apartment. Her husband, Marine Cpl. John Wimunc, 23, was charged with murder, first-degree arson and conspiracy to commit arson in the death of his wife.
Missing Fort Bliss Soldier
Found Alive After 3-Day Kidnap Trek
Monday, July 21, 2008
A Fort Bliss soldier who disappeared last week was stabbed and raped by her husband before he abducted her from her off-post apartment and took her to Nevada, police said Monday.
Pfc. Jeneesa Lewis, 29, turned up wounded but alive in El Paso Sunday night, She was attacked as she entered her apartment about 5:15 p.m. Thursday, police said in an affidavit charging Clinton W. Lewis, 34, with aggravated kidnapping. Lewis turned himself in to El Paso police Sunday night. He is being held in the El Paso County jail on $75,000 bail. Jail records do not show if he has a lawyer, but he was scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday.
The police affidavit said Lewis was waiting inside the soldier's apartment and kicked her in the face as she walked through the door. The private first class was stabbed with a kitchen knife, threatened with death, then raped, investigators allege. Investigators said Lewis then drove her more than 650 miles to Nevada, and apparently boarded an El Paso-bound bus sometime Saturday.
Lewis is wanted in Tennessee on a warrant for not paying back child support and has a decade-long criminal history that includes several arrests for assault and domestic assault. Tammy Skelton, the soldier's sister, said early Monday that Lewis returned to El Paso after seeing news reports of his wife's disappearance.
Delores Pigeon, the women's grandmother, said Jeneesa Lewis called family early Monday to say her husband kidnapped her, drove her to Nevada and then came back to El Paso to turn himself in. "He took her into Nevada," Pigeon said. "She said she's in shock. She's got two big holes in her legs and she lost of a lot of blood."
Army officials at William Beaumont Army Medical Center, the Fort Bliss hospital, said the soldier had been treated and released. "I was just so excited last night to her voice," Pigeon said. "She has bumps and bruises all over."
Everything reached a head during the July 2008 vector with fears the Zodiac Killer had resurfaced with the Megan Touma case, the grisly murder of army nurse Holley Wimunc, the missing and presumed murdered abduction of soldier Jeneesa Lewis, and the strangulation sex slaying of mother-of-two Nancy Cooper. At that time a report was released linking together four of the above-mentioned murders in addition to three others: all of them in North Carolina.
homicide victims grab headlines
July 21, 2008
Raleigh, N.C. The recent slayings of a Cary mother and two female soldiers stationed at Fort Bragg have raised awareness about violence against women and how women can protect themselves. The number of female homicide victims pales in relation to male victims. For example, three of 19 slayings in Wake County and four of 14 in Durham County this year involved women.
number of high-profile cases in recent months have
grabbed people's attention:
"I think women have a legitimate concern about the amount of violence we're seeing against women in the media," said Adam Hartzell, executive director of Interact of Wake County, which helps women escape abusive relationships. "As a society, we need to say enough is enough."
Michael Teague, a former profiler for the Raleigh Police Department, said homicide usually isn't a random crime, but he said the area will see more crimes as the population grows. "I think North Carolina is a very safe place to be," Teague said.
For Anny Jacoby, violence against women is personal. A survivor of domestic violence, she runs Realistic Female Defense and says self-defense is both mental and physical. "Be proactive. If your gut tells you you're in an unhealthy situation, follow those gut instincts," Jacoby said.
Jacoby also knows a female homicide victim. Her son graduated from Chapel Hill High School with Irina Yarmolenko, a University of North Carolina-Charlotte student who was suffocated and left on the bank of the Catawba River in May. "It could've been an ambush. She could've known the person. You don't know, that's the scary thing," said Jacoby, who plans to hold a special training class next month in Carrboro to raise money for Yarmolenko's memorial fund.
With the high profile murder of housewife Nancy Cooper, no other murders of female medical students or female medical military personnel occurred for the remainder of 2008. However. there would be more high profile murders of women in North Carolina and, in 2009 and 2010, the spotlight would also turn to neighbouring Virginia. Three medical students would be murdered in 2009: Dana Clair Edwards (January), Annie Le (September), and Kristi Cornwell (Cornwell was abducted in August 2009 and was a missing persons case until January 2011 when her skeletal remains were found).
Anyway, if you read the article above, you can see why I began to take the idea of a serial killer lurking in the Carolinas, the Virginias, and Georgia more and more seriously. However, the focus should have been to simply compile the high-profile murders of young women in the US in 2008 and see how many of them had been studying or practising medicine. Amazingly enough, there were eight in all ... the same number of student nurses slain by Richard Speck. There should have been a saturation point of sorts reached around the July 2008 vector ... and it is clear there was.
Many other cases were recorded and examined on this page; however, few of these are now pertinent to the original intention of this prediction. Nevertheless, there are a number of cold cases that have yet to be resolved that have accrued in 2008, 2009, and 2010, some mentioned above and others not ... and far too many of them are concentrated in the area of West Virginia, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. I still carry an unsettling feeling that a serial killer has been and still is hunting victims in these five states. Indeed, police now believe that the murderer of college student Morgan Harrington (d. October 2009) may have killed others in the area. There are also still the unsolved murders in Madison, Wisconsin of Kelly Nolan and Brittany Zimmermann. Since I have a prediction that many of these cold cases will be tied together to one or two serial killers, the examination will continue on that page.

NEW PREDICTION: 4/13/06, POSTED 5/1/06 -- I wouldn't be surprised, at the current pace, if Iran demonstrates it has nuclear weapons sometime this year. Probably, like India and Pakistan, it will be an underground test.
The "test" of course would be primarily for Western consumption: Iran already has nuclear weapons, although how many and in what form is debatable. It could be as little as the three warheads they supposedly bought from the Russian black market in January 1992 immediately after the collapse of the Soviet Union or as many as the 250 warheads they allegedly got from Ukraine (plus the few they may have developed on their own or any others Russia may have given them in secret).
They may even seek to outrage "the West" (Europe and the USA) even more than they already have and perform an above the ground nuclear test (which has been prohibited by international law since 1963).
The base 7 vectors for such a test is: October 2006 and July/August 2008.
There is also a remote chance this will not be a test, but a strike. If Israel launches air strikes against Iran in October 2006, then Iran might retaliate with a nuclear missile.

NEW PREDICTION (4/16/07): Yes, he may terrorise an entire city for weeks like Malvo and Muhammad, or, like Charles Whitman, he may pick off his victims in one uncontrollable act of violence and fury from a single vantage point, perhaps a high tower ... in August 2008!
Did it already happen at Virginia Tech a year early ... the same day the prediction was made before it could even be posted?
|WORST SNIPER ATTACK IN US HISTORY - April 16, 2007: A lone gunman is dead after killing 32 people at a college in the US state of Virginia. Virginia Tech president called the massacre a "incomprehensible, heinous act." Virginia Rep. Randy Forbes said he understands the shooter was a student and that he turned the gun on himself.|
The base 7 precedent for this worst shooting massacre in US history was not just another school shooting. It was instead the previous most heinous sniper shooting in US history: The Texas Tower Massacre. When the the bloody shooting spree by Charles Whitman from a 27-story tower at the University of Texas on August 1, 1966 was over, Whitman had killed 15 people and wounded 31 others before he was shot dead by Austin police.
August 1966 will be 42 (6 x 7) years ago next year (2008). For some reason I felt I should post this warning for this year (2007): I forgot this year is aligned with 1965 and not 1966.
This begs the question: is it still possible a worse sniper massacre may yet occur next year in August 2008? Or was today's infamous attacks at Virginia Tech a fulfillment of the prediction a year early?
Twice as many were killed at Virginia Tech than at Texas University, so this "future Whitman" would have to nearly equal or surpass the new record body count of 32. Then again, if this should be another shooting spree like what occurred in the Washington DC area in 2002 over a period of weeks, 15 to 20 dead and 30 wounded would be quite terrifying enough.
|Officials: 13 killed,
including gunman, in Fort Hood shootings
November 6, 2009 -- Updated 0123 GMT (0923 HKT)
(CNN) -- A soldier opened fire on a military processing center at Fort Hood in Texas on Thursday, killing 13 people and wounding 30, officials at the Army base said. The gunman, seriously injured by emergency personnel, is identified as Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, 39, a law enforcement source told CNN.
Licensed in Virginia, Hasan was a psychiatrist who previously worked at Walter Reed Army Medical Center but more recently was practicing at Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, according to professional records. Hasan was scheduled to be deployed to Iraq "and appeared to be upset about that," Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, R-Texas, said. "I think that there is a lot of investigation going on now into his background and what he was doing that was not known before," Hutchison said.
Two other soldiers who were detained have been released, but another person of interest is in custody, said Christopher Haug, chief of public affairs at Fort Hood. Ten of the other dead also were soldiers, while the remaining one was a civilian police officer who was working as a contractor on the base, Cone said.
More than one shooter may have been involved, Cone said. "All the casualties took place at the initial incident, that took place at 13:30 [1:30 p.m. CT], at the soldier readiness facility," Cone said. The primary shooter had two weapons, both handguns, he said.
Hutchison said she was told that the soldiers at the readiness facility "were filling out paper processing to go to Iraq or Afghanistan," according to CNN affiliate KXAN in Austin, Texas. A senior officer who was playing golf Thursday about 2.5 miles from the attack said he witnessed the arrest of one of the two surviving suspects. Shortly after the shooting, military police told him to clear the course, and he saw other MPs surround the building that held the golf carts, he said. He ducked into a nearby house for cover as 30 to 40 cars carrying MPs approached, he said.
The 13 shooting victims pictured above are Pfc. Francheska Velez; Sgt. Amy Krueger; Pfc. Aaron Thomas Nemelka; Staff Sgt. Justin M. DeCrow; Spc. Frederick Greene; Pfc. Michael Pearson; Dr. Russell Seager; Spc. Jason Dean Hunt; Capt. John Gaffaney; Juanita Warman; Maj. Libardo Eduardo Caraveo; Michael Grant Cahill; and Pfc. Kham S. Xiong.
A congressional aide said he was on the post to attend a graduation service when he saw a soldier with blood on his uniform near the building where the service was being held, the Austin American-Statesman reported. Greg Schannep, an aide to U.S. Rep. John Carter, said the soldier ran past him and said a man was shooting. He said the soldier appeared to be injured in a shoulder, the American-Statesman reported.
President Obama called the shootings "tragic" and "a horrific outburst of violence." He expressed his condolences for the shooting victims. "These are men and women who have made the selfless and courageous decision to risk, and at times give, their lives to protect the rest of us on a daily basis," Obama said. "It's difficult enough when we lose these brave Americans in battles overseas. It is horrifying that they should come under fire at an Army base on American soil."
Officials at Fort Hood, which is the Army's largest U.S. post, were asking people there to stay away from windows, CNN affiliate KXXV said. The incident took place at the sports dome, now known as the soldier readiness area, the station reported. The Army has asked the FBI to look into the background of the suspects, Cone said.
On the Fort Hood Web site, the word "closed" is posted with the statement, "Effective immediately, Fort Hood is closed. Organizations/units are instructed to execute a 100 percent accountability of all personnel." Scott & White Memorial Hospital in Temple, Texas, posted an online appeal for blood as it began receving victims. "Due to the recent events on Fort Hood, we are in URGENT need of ALL blood types," it said.
Fort Hood, with about 40,000 troops, is home to the Army's 1st Cavalry Division and elements of the 4th Infantry Division, as well as the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment and the 13th Corps Support Command. It is located near Killeen, Texas. At least 25,000 people are at Fort Hood on any given day, an Army spokesman at the Pentagon said.
Fort Hood is home to the Warrior Combat Stress Reset Program, which is designed to help soldiers overcome combat stress issues. In June, Fort Hood's commander, Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, told CNN that he was trying to ease the kind of stresses soldiers face.
He has pushed for soldiers working a day schedule to return home for dinner by 6 p.m., and required his personal authorization for anyone working weekends. At the time, two soldiers stationed there had committed suicide in 2009 -- a rate well below those of other posts.
COMMENTS (11/6/09): The events of the last few days are truly numbing. First, In Cleveland, we have had what looks like one of the worst mass sex slayings in modern US history since the days of Richard Speck, all apparently by strangulation. However, this appears to have occurred over a period of time, 2005 to 2009, rather than all in one night, thus, would be classified as serial murder. Now comes yet another Charles Whitman type mass shooting ... once again in Texas, but this time at a military base rather than from the tower of a university. Whitman killed 15 and wounded 31; Hasan has killed 13 and wounded 30. The stats are eerily similar.
It is troubling that both of these have occurred back-to-back, practically the same as the Speck and Whitman cases. However, why they have both happened now, in October and November 2009, rather than in July and August 2008, is curious to say the least. The base 7 system can be approximately a year (give or take several months) early or late, or merely one to several months early or late, and it appears that it has been fifteen months late this time around.
So, yes, both predictions, the one titled "Sorority House Massacre!," and this one, "Sniper Kills 15 to 20, Injures 30 (or worse)," can now be considered as PREDICTION FULFILLED.
However ... these happenings do not take away the additional events that have occurred applicable to both predictions: The Health Club Massacre, where killer George Sodini attempted to murder as many women in one night as he could after turning out the lights and opening fire in the pitch black of the gym, wounding thirteen and killing three ... or the eleven young women and one young man shot to death by Tim Kretschmer at the university at Stuttgart, Germany on March 11 ... or the string of unsolved murdered, abducted, and missing female university students, more than half now cold cases, that began in July 2007 with the murder of UW-Madison (Wisconsin) honour student Kelly Nolan, continuing to this day with the mysterious disappearance of Virginia Tech student Morgan Dana Harrington (the cause of death in the Nolan case is still being kept secret from the media by police over two years later).
They do not take away from the worst mass shooting on a college campus in history in 2007 when Seung-Hui Cho murdered 32 fellow students at Virginia Tech ... or the two mass shootings (discussed below) that occurred within the same 24-hour period, Tim Kretschmer at the university at Stuttgart, Germany (once again) and the Alabama Shooting Spree by gunman Michael McLendon.
All of this is quite clearly a case of PREDICTION OVERKILL. In 1966 there was only the Speck case and the Whitman case ... and both of those were enough to become infamous in the annals of history for the many, many years that followed. To paraphrase what I state in the report below, "we live in an age when Specks, Sodinis, Sowells's, Whitmans, Seung-Hui Chos, McLendons, Kretschmers, Hasans, and Stewarts are proliferating like cockroaches out of sinks, cupboards, walls and floors."
The third worst shooting spree in history occurred during a 24-hour period on March 10 and 11, 2009, in two different countries. Although the killers did not know each other, their bloody acts were conducted in the same manner and had the same deadly results. Don't expect to see these two combined on any crime website, because few people have made the simple association: "My God! These shootings both occurred on the same day!" To the best of my knowledge, this has never happened before. It is for this reason I am presenting the two cases as though they were one.
|Shootings in Alabama and
Germany Kill 28 Combined in Less Than 24 Hours
03/11/2009 - A man in Alabama went on a 24-mile shooting spree in two towns Tuesday and killed 11 people, including himself, and wounded five others. Among the victims were his mother, his grandparents, an uncle, and a 4-month old baby.
The alleged killer, Michael McLendon, 28, drove through several south Alabaman towns firing at will. The shooter killed five people including the wife of a local deputy sheriff and her 3-month-old baby at a mobile home in Samson. He also killed two people at a convenience store and a man driving a pickup truck. Police chased him to a factory where he turned the gun on himself.
The gunman was armed for the shooting spree with two military assault rifles, a handgun and a shotgun. More than 200 rounds were fired in the rampage, which started in Kinston in southeastern Alabama and finally ended as McLendon drove through nearby Samson, apparently firing at random.
Then this morning, a gunman dressed in military gear walked into a technical school in Winnenden, on the outskirts of Stuttgart, Germany, and began firing before killing 15.
Most of the victims at the school were female -- eight female students, three female teachers and one male student.
He did not shoot wildly, contradicting earlier police statements, but hit most of his victims in the head. Hours after the attacks, he fled and killed a person working in a hospital nearby (victim 16), then hijacked a car and got in a shoot-out with police.
Two passersby were wounded as well as two police officers.
The gunman, identified as Tim Kretschmer, 17, was killed during the shootout.
Killer Specifically Targeted Girls and Women
The teenage gunman who murdered 15 people in one of the worlds worst high school massacres specifically targeted girls as he went on the rampage at his former school in Germany. Police said the death toll would have been even worse had it not been for the extraordinary sacrifice of the three teachers, who stood in Kretschmers way to protect their students.
Witnesses described how one of the women shielded a pupil while she defiantly looked into the killers eyes. "He gunned her down with ice-cold efficiency, a police spokesman said.
At least seven people were injured in the shootings -- five people in Winnenden and two police officers in Wendlingen.
Total body count of dead and wounded (shooter included): 24.
As mentioned above, five people were wounded in the Alabama shooting spree. Total body count of dead and wounded (shooter included): 16. Between Kretschmer and McLendon, 28 people were killed and 12 people were wounded in less than 24 hours. Total body count of dead and wounded: 40.
1) Virginia Tech: Seung-Hui Cho: total count 56 dead and wounded.
Cho killed 32 people and wounded 23, killed himself.
2) Texas University: Charles Whitman: total count 47 dead and wounded.
Whitman killed 14 people and wounded 32 others, was shot dead.
March 30, 2009: At this writing, yesterday Robert Stewart, 45, entered a nursing home in North Carolina and shot 8 senior citizens and a nurse dead.
We have entered "the age of the rampage" where killing sprees cease to be isolated incidents frozen in history like the image of sniper Charles Whitman alone on his tower in Austin, Texas in August 1966. We live in an age when Whitmans, Seung-Hui Chos, McLendons, Kretschmers and Stewarts are proliferating like cockroaches out of sinks, cupboards, walls and floors. An excerpt from yesterday's article on the nursing home slayings sums it up perfectly:
"Sunday's slayings were the latest in a series of high-profile in March, including the killings of 10 people by an Alabama man who was then killed by police. In addition, a man shot and killed a pastor in a southern Illinois church and stabbed two parishioners, and a 17-year-old in Germany killed 15 people in two small towns before dying in a shootout with police."
Actually, I missed the one about the attack in the church ... events happen so fast and are just as quickly sweeped under the carpet by the news media after they cease to attract ratings.
Today, a golden oldie like Charles Whitman might buy one day on the boob tube. Rampages and massacres and killing sprees (not to be confused with serial murders which remain at the usual levels, at least thus far) are quickly becoming part of the "normal" landscape ... like the bootlegging gangsters and bank robbers of the 1920s and 1930s. Keeping track of the numbers and scoring the wanton destruction eventually will prove to be a useless venture ... relatively-speaking.
Pardon the pun, but this is quite clearly a case of PREDICTION OVERKILL.

NEW PREDICTION: 7/9/07 -- Similar to The Harmonic Convergence of 1987 and The August 11, 1999 Total Solar Eclipse ceremonies, a new age mass spiritual event will take place in August 2008 to celebrate the coming passage of Planet X in August 2009. The ritual will be held in darkness due to the obscured sun, although anticipation will be that the sunlight will return in April 2009.
The ceremony will hail August 2008 through August 2009 as the "final year" before the great cleansing of the planet and the divine transformation of the human race, although, in fact, the actual closest passage of Nibiru will not occur until November 2009. Still, prophecy places Nibiru in a dreadful position in the heavens during the August 2009 Russian-Iranian-led invasion of Europe which marks the nightmare stage of World War III. Ironically, when November 2009 arrives and PX does its worst, it will largely be obscured from view due to dense and visually frightening clouds and unimaginable global deluges, terrifying storms, fire from the sky, and super-hurricane force winds.
Again, these new age ceremonies will concentrate not on the mass destruction Nibiru will bring to earth, but on the universal spiritual awakening the people will believe shall accompany the passage. They shall not fear death because they will believe death shall bring about a divine transformation and that the living survivors will likewise be transformed by the cleansing red light of the brown dwarf star. They will with great excitement and enthusiasm await the coming of the great "Red Hour" that will hasten their mortal death and transfiguration.
Here is one of my dreams, from October 11, 2000 (October 11 is my birthday). I did not know anything about Planet X or Nibiru at the time. I had never even heard of the Sumerian accounts or Zecharia Sitchen or anything else related. It would be another two years before I would see Mark Hazlewood's or YOWUSA's internet blitz on the subject to draw attention to their websites. Yet, I accurately dreamt about this space object and what the reaction of many people would be to the news of its coming. And this is why I believe Planet X is real and is approaching us, because I dreamed about it long before anyone was even talking about it and my dream matches what has been said:
I remember that there was a great sense of excitement and spiritual unity of some type and it was positive. There was also a prophecy, one not yet known about at this time, that everyone in the world understood and was awaiting its fulfillment. There would be a third comet or something celestial, the third in a series according to the prophecy, and when it would appear, most of the people on earth would die. What was confusing to me was why there was so much celebration of the coming of something that would bring mass death.
I also saw it, but the strange part was that it was usually in the day. It looked red and not really like any comet I have ever seen. I don't know if such a thing is even possible.
There was also a photo of it in the newspaper in my dream. Each day it grew a bit larger.
I cannot recall ever seeing it at night in the dream -- but that doesn't mean I didn't, I just don't remember. There was no date or year attached to the event that I can recall.

If this is going to happen, strong indications are that it will be around the month of August 2008.
Powerful 'terrorist' bomb explodes outside Athens stock exchange
3:42 PM, 2 September 2009
A powerful car bomb has exploded outside the Athens stock exchange. The incident, which Greek police suspect is the latest attack by leftist or anarchist groups, left one woman wounded. The Athens exchange opened normally despite suffering extensive damage in the blast, which also set alight eight vehicles.
Leftist and anarchist groups have staged attacks against business and police targets since December 2008, when the police shooting of a teenager sparked Greece's worst riots in decades. Police said they suspected one of these groups had planted the bomb, which blew out windows on several floors of the stock exchange and hurled debris hundreds of metres away.
'All evidence shows it was a terrorist attack,' said Greek police spokesman Panayiotis Stathis. He said anti-terrorist police were gathering evidence from the area, which was cordoned off, and that no group had claimed responsibility yet.
An anonymous caller warned a Greek newspaper of the attack, apparently aimed at damaging the building but not people. Police said the makeshift time-bomb was made up of about 15 kilos of explosive material, planted in a white van on a side street of the exchange. A nearby car dealership, other businesses and four apartments were also damaged.
A police spokesman said the make-up of the bomb was similar to others planted by the leftist Revolutionary Struggle, Greece's most militant group, which emerged in September 2003 after the capture of the November 17 group. In 2007 the group fired a grenade at the U.S. embassy in Athens, hitting its facade, and seriously wounded a police officer outside the Culture Ministry in a 2009 shooting.
Police said a home-made bomb exploded at the same time outside a government building in the northern city of Thessaloniki, causing minor damage but no injuries. It was not immediately clear if the two attacks were connected.
The chairman of the Athens Stock Exchange, Spyros Kapralos, said the damage to the building was substantial but officials worked hard to open for trading. 'Despite the huge material damages caused to the building by today's explosion, both the Athens and the Cyprus stock markets will operate normally,' he said.
The Athens stock exchange opened at 0730 GMT and stocks were trading down by 2.4 percent. Athens and Nicosia share a trading platform.
Leftist and anarchist guerrilla groups have claimed responsibility for several attacks against businesses, cars and police this year, culminating with the assassination of a policeman in his car in June by the Rebel Sect group. Imitating the November 17 group, which killed 23 Greeks and foreigners in 27 years but avoided hurting bystanders,
Greek guerrilla groups usually strike at night when businesses are closed to avoid alienating the public.
COMMENTS (4/27/10): No one told me about this when it happened. Indeed, I am a bit annoyed at how many events I have been allowed to miss. But of course that only serves the purpose of those opposed to this website ... that I not know if a prediction of mine was fulfilled or close to being fulfilled. I did not say 60 people would be killed in the bombing; I said that 60 people may be killed. There is a difference. Miraculously, only one person was injured ... not bad considering the magnitude of destruction to the building. Yes; I know this was not an airport either. I do the best I can. Some would still consider this a PREDICTION FULFILLED, but I would say CLOSE ... either way it is a hit. Terrorist attacks of this magnitude (it was a very powerful bomb) are not common in Greece.

NEW PREDICTION: 8/24/08 -- This is a late posting, but I would clearly be derelict in my duties not to mention the possibility of such an event.
This month there have already been two major airliner crashes, one three days ago in Madrid, Spain during take-off, killing 153 passengers, and one today involving a Kyrgystan airliner bound for Iran crashing near its own airport in Bishkek. Thus far 60 people are reported killed and 20 injured. This latter crash might have been predicted using the base 7 system, but it would have required a lot of research. As it turns out there was a major airliner crash involving an Aeroflot in Alma Ata, Kazakhstan in July 1980 when that Central Asian nation was still part of the Soviet Union. 166 people were killed. This was not too easy to find.
In the case of the Madrid crash, Spain had a base 7 precedent occur back in March 1973 when 68 people were killed after two Spanish aircraft collided in mid-air over France. Had I predicted the Madrid crash, I would have been late by five months.
In any event, here is the danger now for an Arab airliner: A passenger jet originating from somewhere in the Middle East, likely Saudi Arabia or a smaller oil kingdom like Kuwait or Bahrain, will crash in a fiery blaze into the runway at its own or another Middle Eastern airport in August/September 2008. No one will survive. The body count may be quite high as well, exceeding 300 possibly. It will be one of the worst aviation disasters in modern history. There is a remote possibility it will be shot down by terrorists; however, I suspect a fire on board will be the likelier scenario. I suspect the airport where the doomed airliner crashes, once again, will be located in Saudi Arabia or its home nation.

NEW PREDICTION: 8/24/08 -- A US Air Flight, possibly originating out of Detroit or Chicago, may crash in August/September 2008, killing everyone on board. The aircraft may experience a sudden loss of control and slam into the ground in a nearly vertical nose down position. All on board, over 150, will die in the tragic accident. This crash could be the work of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. It is very strange that August is already demonstrating so much potential for airliner disasters -- both in Europe and Central Asia, and next quite possibly the Middle East and the United States.
|Continental Flight 1404:
Landing gear, wheels, brakes possible cause of crash
December 22, 2008
DENVER, Colorado (CNN) -- A problem with the landing gear, tire or brakes may have caused a Continental Airlines jet to veer off a runway into a 40-foot-deep ravine during its takeoff at Denver International Airport, a source told CNN Monday. A source tells CNN that it is possible a wheel locked up while the Continental jet took off from Denver.
More than three dozen people were injured in Saturday's accident, most from bruises and broken bones as frightened passengers tried to flee a fire on board. There were no fatalities. The source said early indications show a problem with the landing gear, tires or brakes could have caused a wheel to lock up.
Robert Sumwalt, a National Transportation Safety Board member leading the investigation team, said Monday he could not identify the captain and first officer, nor say whether either was hospitalized or who was actually flying the plane.
Neither has been interviewed yet, though federal investigators are arranging for an interview with the first officer. A knowledgeable source told CNN the captain was hospitalized in serious condition.
On Monday investigators were to begin interviewing crew members, pilots and passengers to help determine what caused the accident. From the air, a crack is visible wrapping around the middle part of the plane. "The captain has not been interviewed at this time," Sumwalt said. "We want to do it as soon as we can but want to be respectful of the captain's mental condition. ... We want to make sure he or she is mentally ready."
Gabriel Trejos was about to board Continental Flight 1404, bound for Houston, with his wife and 1-year-old when gate officials announced the plane was experiencing "engine problems," Trejos told CNN affiliate KUSA. But, "shortly after that, they said everything is fine. There's going to be an on-time flight," Trejos said.
The Boeing 737 taxied down the runway at Denver International Airport and accelerated. It was dark, 6:18 p.m., and the Trejos' baby, leaning against the window, giggled at the lights on the tarmac. "All of a sudden, it was too much light," said Maria Trejos, who is four months pregnant.
"We felt the plane veer to the left. My husband was holding my son and we felt some bumpiness and I thought it was just turbulence," she said. "I looked to the side and all of a sudden there was this giant fireball behind my husband's head. I have this image of him just grabbing my son's head and just pulling him toward himself and all of a sudden we felt this heat." She felt a bump, she said. "And it felt like we were airborne for a couple of seconds."
The plane skidded off the runway, its wheels disintegrating. It slammed into a ravine, its fuel tanks leaking, and caught fire. Luggage fell out of overhead bins that had begun to melt. Passengers panicked and shoved and stepped over each other.
One yelled, "The plane is going to explode!" said Gabriel Trejos, who was clutching his child and feared that the buckling seats would "squash" them both.
The couple fought their way into a line of people scrambling to get out of the back of the plane. Some were trying to get their luggage first. "I just wanted to get out of there," Gabriel Trejos said. He noticed that the escape chute in the middle of the plane had fewer people huddled near it. The Trejos dashed for that and escaped.
All 115 people on board survived the crash. Forty people were injured, two critically, authorities said. Bone fractures and bruises were the most common complaint, and there appeared to be no burn victims, fire officials said. Of the dozens taken to hospitals, five people remained hospitalized late Sunday, Sumwalt said.
Black Box May Hold Clues to Fiery Crash
Dec. 22, 2008
The black box recovered from the cockpit of the airplane that rolled off a runway and burst into flames Saturday in Denver is thought to contain information that will help the investigation, a National Transportation Safety Board member said today.
A Continental Airlines flight crashed during takeoff. "We understand that there is good data on those recorders," said NTSB member Robert Sumwalt this afternoon in Denver. He said that a team of investigators will soon begin what's often a three-day process of deciphering the cockpit voice recorder.
As federal investigators continue to examine what caused the plane to veer off the runway and catch fire, it now appears that crosswinds may have been a factor in the accident that injured 38 people. The Continental Airlines flight was fighting crosswinds estimated at 31 miles an hour as it sped down the runway.
Sources said pilots used the tail rudder to counteract the wind and keep the plane straight. Investigators will want to know if those controls relaxed, causing the plane to veer left. It wasn't until then, sources said, that pilots tried to abort the takeoff. The plane veered left, careering into a 40-foot ravine where the right side caught fire and the fuselage partially buckled. One engine and most of the landing gear were completely sheared off.
"Crosswinds alone cannot come anywhere close to explaining this accident," he said. "We have plenty of capability of keeping these planes on a dry runway."
Denver plane crash: 'Miracle' no one died
8:02PM GMT 22 Dec 2008
It was a miracle that no one was killed when an airliner veered sharply off a runway during takeoff, burst into flames and nearly broke apart, rescuers have said.
At least 58 people were injured in the a plane crash in Denver which firemen compared to a scene from a disaster film.
The Continental Airlines Boeing 737 went off the runway during takeoff from Denver International Airport in Colorado, plunging into a ravine and shearing off its landing gear and left engine. The entire right side of the plane was burned, and melted plastic from overhead compartments dripped onto the seats. Investigators said the plane's left engine was ripped away along with all the landing gear.
"It was a miracle ... that everybody survived the impact and the fire," said Bill Davis, an assistant Denver fire chief assigned to the airport. "It was just amazing."
Mr Davis said the plane came to a rest about 200 yards from one of the airport's four fire stations. Rescue crews arrived at the plane some 2,000 feet from the end of the runway to find what Patrick Hynes, the Denver Fire Department division chief, described as a "surreal scene". The fuselage was partially buckled and debris was strewn along the runway.
As smoke filled the ravine, the 100 passengers and five crew left the plane on emergency slides. There were no fatalities but some passengers suffered broken bones and two were in critical condition with fractures following the accident on Saturday evening.
Mike Wilson, a passenger, described the chaos on messages posted to the internet site Twitter.com on his cell phone. "By the time the plane stopped we were burning pretty well and I think I could feel the heat even through the bulkhead and window," he wrote. "I made for the exit door as quickly as I could, fearing the right wing might explode from the fire. Once out, I scrambled down the wing."
In November 1987, another Continental flight crashed in bad weather at Stapleton Airport, Denver's former main airport, killing 28 of its 73 passengers.
COMMENTS (12/22/08): The year 1987 (3 x 7 years ago) produced two events warning of this fiery crash: Continental Flight 1713 that crashed on November 15, 1987, mentioned in the above report, and also Northwest Airlines Flight 255 which crashed in the western suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, in August 16, 1987, killing 158, with only 1 survivor. It was a miracle indeed no one was killed this time around. Thank God for miracles. May God grant us all a miracle ... we will need one soon. PREDICTION FULFILLED ... but without fatalities.

The plot to blow up an American passenger jet over Detroit was organized and launched by al Qaeda leaders in Yemen who apparently sewed bomb materials into the suspect's underwear before sending him on his mission, federal authorities tell ABC News.
Investigators say the suspect had more than 80 grams of PETN, a compound related to nitro-glycerin used by the military. The so-called shoe bomber, Richard Reid, had only about 50 grams kin his failed attempt in 2001 to blow up a U.S.-bound jet. Yesterday's bomb failed because the detonator may have been too small or was not in "proper contact" with the explosive material, investigators told ABC News.
Investigators say the suspect, Abdul Farouk Umar Abdulmutallab, a 23-year-old Nigerian student whose birthday was last Tuesday, has provided detailed information about his recruitment and training for what was supposed to be a Christmas Day suicide attack. According to the authorities, Abdulmutallab says he made contact via the internet with a radical imam in Yemen who then connected him with al Qaeda leaders in a village north of the country's capital, Sanaa.
Authorities say they do not yet know if the imam was the same one who was in contact with Maj. Nidal Hasan prior to his alleged attack on soldiers at Fort Hood last month. American-born Anwar Awlaki has lived in Yemen since 2002 and is considered a major recruiter for al Qaeda by U.S. authorities. He survived a U.S.-backed air strike earlier this week.
The suspect in the Northwest Airlines attack told FBI agents he lived with the al Qaeda leader in Yemen for about a month and was not allowed to leave as he was trained in what to do and how to do it, authorities said. At some point, according to the account, Abdulmutallab said he was joined by a Saudi citizen whom he described as an al Qaeda bomb maker ...
COMMENTS (12/27/09): I did mention Detroit as being the location of a terrorist explosion on a US airliner (the other possible place being Chicago). Al Qaeda is now being linked to the Nigerian passenger who suffered massive burns from the waist down attempting to detonate a powerful explosive. This happened midair as the plane approached Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Had the explosion occurred, everyone on board, all 278 passengers, would have died (a much higher figure than the "over 150" I projected). This second incident is a case of PREDICTION OVERKILL, but in some ways more accurate than the Denver event because Detroit was specifically mentioned and because a terrorist act was attempted to be carried out, as predicted. Time-wise, however, this has occurred in an adjacent year (2009 rather than 2008) and is 15 months late.

NEW PREDICTION: 1/25/05 -- New York City is destroyed by nuclear terrorism or nuclear military attack in August/September 2008 or April 2009. Whether it will be a terrorist or military attack is uncertain. If this is a dreaded Russian or Chinese attack by nuclear ICBMs, the entire state of New York will likely be incinerated. Nostradamus suggests this could be either a missile strike from another country or perhaps a plane carrying a nuclear device or else a rocket-fired atomic warhead. Alois Irlmaier is quite definite about the city's destruction being a nuclear attack by Russia, yet the Seer of Waldviertel insists this will be an act of nuclear terrorism:
It is possible that this quatrain is also prophesying a nuclear threat to the Parisian port city of Marsellies at the time of the attack on NYC. Then again, if the Normans are "the North Men," then it may be Russia that America is awaiting some action by.
There were a lot of bone-chilling reports of Al Qaeda having nuclear bombs and being ready to use them on New York City and other US cities in autumn 2001 and winter and spring 2002, but the Big Apple is still in business. However, the prospects for NYC are not good after the US goes to war with Iran and Syria and is devastated by an alliance of Al Qaeda, Iran, and Russia in Saudi Arabia.
For Alois Irlmaier, the nuclear destruction of New York is accompanied by a Chinese/North Korean invasion of the US West Coast (in another prediction he predicts the invasion of Alaska).
When the Waldviertler prophecy of the nuclear destruction of Manhattan by terrorists takes place, however, there is only war in the Middle East and a limited conflict in the Balkans. "War" (World War 3) has not yet reached Austria, which means the Russian blitzkrieg of Central and Western Europe has not yet been launched.
Access a Dream Window for more detailed information in the form of various visions by visitors to my website and myself. The following cities, for one reason or another, may also be in danger of nuclear or "dirty bomb" terrorism in 2008-09 or sooner: Chicago, Los Angeles (and/or Hollywood), Washington DC, Seattle, New York City, Boston, Buffalo, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and Miami.

"The Beast," "The Sufyaani," and "The Great Arab"
he reaches Damascus he will emerge, overrunning and seizing
control of Syria. He will have 3 staffs in
his hand, and anyone whom he strikes with them will die ... The Sufyaani will then send an army to Iraq,
killing 100,000 in Az-Zawra, and also will receive the support of the Western forces. The Sufyaani and
his forces will go to Kufa and pillage it, killing the descendants of the Prophet and to the point
where he kills children and rips open women. In retaliation the tribe of Qays will rise up
against him, but they will be defeated, and he will slaughter them in Kurkisa ...
NEW PREDICTION: 8/25/08 -- August/September 2008 introduces "the great Arab," a new super-Nasser. He will come to power quite suddenly by coup, but it will be a coup engineered by the West. The current candidate who has the highest potential for unifying the Arab world is the uncle of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, Rifaat al-Assad, who has built a strong following abroad and who has of late been treated as a guest at Arab summits as though he were a national leader. This individual shall either come to power before World War III or after. If it is to be before, then the above vector best approximates when this shall occur.
This same individual may well be the biblical beast of Revelation. He may also be the monstrous Arab figure who appears in Islamic endtime prophecy known as the Sufyanni. Of course Nostradamus describes a great Arab as well, although it is not certain that his Arab personalities are the same man or different men.
For more more information on Rifaat al-Assad as "the beast" and "the sufyaani," see articles about him on my page, Personalities From The Book Of Revelation.

Nostradamus, Quatrain 1.87 ~
fire from the center of the earth will cause the towers of the
new city to tremble:
Two great rocks will war for a long time, then Arethusa will redden a new river.
NEW PREDICTION: 1/11/08 -- We can now see the fallout from the nuclear attack on NYC. However, even if the quatrain above does not apply to this war, which I believe is inevitable, the attack will likely trigger a full-on US blitzkrieg by sea and air of Iran at this point in time, September 2008, after which the Iran-Iraq War shall be renewed. If not at this point in time, then it likely shall happen in May 2009. Also, it is possible that a new Iran-Iraq War could begin at this time without there being a nuclear terrorist strike in Manhattan.
Still, it certainly looks that way doesn't it? This quatrain could so easily follow upon the others concerning NYC, it makes me sigh. The two great rocks are "The East" and "The West" if not under the false cover of Islam vs Christianity. But it shall truly begin where it almost began in 1980 and again in 1987: in a great war between Iraq and Iran. Meantime, Amerika has already established its presence in the region in anticipation as has Nato nation Turkey.
This conflict should not be confused with the War of Alus/Arethusa which will follow sometime between October 2008 and June 2009 (when "Arethusa will redden a new river"), for that shall be a regional war that will spread throughout the entire Middle East, including Israel. However, this is the conflict that shall trigger it, obviously.

NEW PREDICTION: 7/7/08 -- In past emails I have discussed the possibility of applying the base 7 system to specific individuals or for people to be able to use it to chart out their their own specific life patterns. For example I was injured in a car accident in December 1977. I was driving recklessly on ice while speeding to make my college class and lost control of the vehicle. I suffered head lacerations, was transported to emergency room by ambulance where I was X-rayed, evaluated, stitched up and sent home. The car was totalled.
After coming up with the base 7 system in January 1996, I asked myself if I might be in a similar danger again in December 1998, 21 (3 x 7) years later. Careful as I was driving that year, I was very reckless one afternoon in September 1998 helping my cousin walk his dogs, and climbing a hill of topsoil, stones, roots, branches, etc where a house was being built. While we let the dogs romp about, I climbed up to the peak and looked around, then, stepping down, lost my footing. I pitched forwards clutching at empty air. I ended up falling forwards off a sheer drop, landing on my stomach on a steep slope, and sliding and tumbling down the slope. When I finally stopped sliding my face was only an inch away from a wooden stake pointed directly up at my eyes. I considered myself lucky although I had severe abrasions on my stomach and legs and went promptly to the emergency room.
As far as I am concerned, 1977 did repeat again in 1998. It was a different kind of recklessness and a different kind of accident, but the end result, my being injured and having to go to hospital, was like nothing else I had experienced since 1977. The event was only three months premature of the December vector.
Occasionally celebrities allow us to have insight concerning their own moments of danger, illnesses, injuries, accidents, suicide attempts, and the like. Sometimes we know part of the story of their lives simply by paying attention to events that happen to them when they happen and keeping the dates in mind. Other times they will discuss such events in interviews, filling us in on what we never knew.
Actress Sharon Stone is one of these. The following prediction is based on her own life experiences: Sharon Stone is in danger of death in September 2008 ... and it could even happen a few months before or a few months later.
On September 29, 2001, seven years ago, Sharon Stone walked into the emergency room suffering from what she thought was the most painful migraine headache she ever had had in her life. Stone was diagnosed with "subarachnoid hemorrhage," after initial tests showed minor bleeding on the brain apparently caused by a tiny aneurysm. The condition, which involves bleeding into the space between the brain and the arachnoid membrane, the middle of three membranes covering the brain, causes 5 to 10 percent of all strokes. According to doctors the condition can stem from a brain aneurysm, but even so in Sharon's case they were unable to pinpoint a cause and Stone remained hospitalised through the week for further testing. An aneurysm is a bulging area in a weakened wall of a blood vessel that can rupture and cause bleeding.
By October 4, 2001, Sharon's health was being reported as "hanging in the balance." A neurosurgeon expert at the hospital on that day informed the media that the risk of her dying would be significantly reduced if she got through the next two weeks without any major complications.
On October 9, 2001, Sharon was released from the hospital and was expected to make a full recovery with "no medical restrictions on her personal or professional activities." Doctors said they performed an endovascular coil embolisation procedure to eliminate blood flow through a vertebral artery dissection, which caused the hemorrhage she had suffered in September. When leaving the hospital, the actress said in a statement, "I would like to thank my fans for their love and support and the miraculous power of prayer. I am forever grateful."
Does anyone find it more than a little strange that so many reports are being published now about how Sharon Stone has been offered a free brain scan by the animal rights group Peta? This offer was made as a statement commenting about her seemingly heartless remarks about "bad karma" over Tibet being the reason for China's killer earthquake.
This is actually a very ominous event by itself, with much attention to be paid to the root meaning of the word "ominous" which is omen.
The fact that her head was involved in the near death experience she had in 2001, we must seriously consider the possibility that Sharon Stone may be in danger of an injury to her head or neck.
In 1971, at age 13, Stone was riding a horse and ran into a clothes line. The clothesline abraded her neck badly, ripping into parts of the skin. A long scar on her throat and neck remains visible to this day and has been the subject of much speculation.
In 1986, she was involved in a car crash that injured her sister but left Sharon unharmed. However, she was not so lucky in 1990. Shortly after the release of Total Recall, the actress had a bad car accident on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. Immediately after the acident, she went home, not knowing she had just suffered a concussion (here the head comes into play again). She woke up almost completely paralysed, and ended up laying on the floor, crying, for three days. When she finally got to the hospital, she was diagnosed with the concussion, a dislocated shoulder and jaw, several broken ribs, and three compressed disks in her back.
In 1993, whilst in a convenience store to purchase food and other items, Sharon found herself suddenly in the midst of a holdup. One of the thieves held a gun to her head for about five tense minutes before making a getaway (into the arms of the law), leaving the actress shaken but unharmed.
Thus, we can see that Sharon Stone has a history of close calls. To make matters worse, most of the close calls are on seperate base 7 timelines (1971, 1978, 1985, 1992, 1999, and 2006 ... with the horseriding accident non-repeating; 1990, 1997, and 1984 with the auto crash non-repeating ... and the 2001 brain aneurysm which, of course, has yet to indicate any tendancy to repeat). However, the 1986 car accident does give us a repetition in 1993 seven years later with the holdup, but notice that in both of these instances Sharon was not harmed!
Even so, the accumulative evidence suggests head or neck injuries could occur due to four major incidents: the horseriding accident (1971), the concussion received in the car crash (1990), a gun being held to her head (1993), and the brain aneurysm (2001).
Regarding anything else of a current medical nature, it is known that Ms Stone suffers from diabetes and has been successfully treating it for some time. Perhaps it is this condition that requires some attention now on her part or on the part of her personal physician?
Conclusion: Sharon Stone is in danger of dying from a serious head or neck injury or from brain damage from an injury or a medical condition in September 2008 or therabouts. Of course her diabetes must also be closely monitored at this time as well.

NEW PREDICTION: 2/10/08 -- In the autumn of 1966 the Beatles released their ground-breaking album Revolver, sparking off a revolutionary new movement in rock music that would soon be dubbed "psychedelic" by the rock band The Blues Magoos. Many formerly obscure acts, such as The Thirteen Floor Elevators, The Electric Prunes, and The Music Machine, along with others destined for greatness like The Doors and Cream would join their ranks before the end of the year. Although many rock historians have recently categorised the Psychedelic Period as being 1965-1975, the reality is that it was a short-lived yet extremely powerful and trend-setting time of musical expressionism and reactionary-ism that lasted from late 1966 through the spring of 1969. At that time it became a purely alternative or "underground" medium that would weaken drastically in quality each year whilst top 40 reverted to a more romantic format governed by commercial rock, pop, and R&B artists. Although it is possible to argue that foundations were being laid for psychedelia in 1965 and much of 1966 by an odd group here or there, even by rock guitar pioneers like Les Paul in the 1950s, the movement truly did not begin until after the release of Revolver and the The Blues Magoos' declaration.
Which brings us to what may happen in the autumn of September/October 2008. Who will ignite a new wave of music as the Beatles did in 1966? Or will it simply be diverse artists working together under several powerful production teams?
It is clear when listening to such gems currently under rotation on radio such as Shadow of the Day by Linkin Park, The Black Parade by My Chemical Romance, and Scream by Timbaland what shape and sound music will have by the end of this year. Three forms are working together and apart to establish a merger between an established dance music known as Trance, yet another that has no real name yet, a new and powerful form of hip hop and R&B which amplifies low emotions whilst creating a dark, trancelike state, and also what at one time was called Goth alternative rock and Dark Wave rock.
Trance and the new, darker hip hop/R&B is already scoring big points in top 40, especially Kiss Kiss by Chris Brown and Scream by Timbaland, but dark wave music has always remained largely an alternative form, rarely if ever breaching pop music charts. That is changing and will continue to change in the months ahead until darkness takes over Top 40 completely in September/October 2008.
If all follows to plan, the two biggest years for dark pop shall be 2009 and 2010, with the music leaving the pop charts in the spring of 2011. Since the genious known as Timbaland is producing the new Madonna album, it is likely Madonna herself who shall ignite the dark pop scene just as surely as the Beatles helped bring the psychedelic movement into the pop culture of the late 1960s.
'Feel Good'-Style Pop of Early 1970s Also Attempting Comeback, But Will Likely Fail By Year's End
UPDATE (2/12/08): I would add however that there are also indications in the current pop music scene that an effort is underway to re-create the 'feel good' sounds of the early 1970s. Although I work largely with the number 7 in my visual mathematical patterning of history and its influence in our present and near future, indeed the most sacred number found in the Bible and representative of how time actually works, the number 9 also can wield a powerful influence when grouped in doubles or 'workings' of 18 years. If we look at the number of workings closest to the Vietnam era, which we are linked to by virtue of the Iraq War and the War on Terror, we find that two such workings ago (36 years) brings us to 1972. 1972 was perhaps the greatest 'feel good' year in modern history, marking the dying embers of Vietnam and ushering in the dawn of what many hoped would be a much better and happier decade. It laid the foundations for a type of pop music that would dominate the 1970s alongside the disco era that would begin a few years later.
Love Song by Sara Bareilles could easily be a Carole King standard from 1971 or 1972, romantic and bouncy, Barseilles' hit is destined to become as legendary an anthem as any song that ever appeared on King's Tapestry album. Wont Go Home Without You by Maroon 5 actually sounds as though it was abducted from 1972 and transported through time to 2008 for release. It could well be a cover of a hit from that year for all I know. Apologize by Timbaland and One Republic reminds one of the singing style of early Elton John combined with the hopeless, lyrical sadness of a song like Harry Nilsson's Without You. Even songs that do not sound as though they come from that time, like No One by Alicia Keys, at least reflect the idealism and natural romanticism of so many of the ballads of the era.
Thus, it would appear there is a counter movement in pop music at work to offset the darkness that is likewise infiltrating the medium. Who or what is behind this I do not know. But it is for this reason that I believe 2008 will go down in history as one of the great years of music along with 2007. Sadly, however, due to the reality of where we actually are in relationship to world trends, the 'feel good' pop explosion, like the heady and jubulent British Invasion years of 1965 and 1966, will ultimately give way to the dark pop that is being prepared for the autumn of this year and for the years ahead.
Madonna's new album out at end of April
March 4, 2008
PARIS (AFP) Madonna's new hip hop-influenced album "Hard Candy" will be released at the end of April and will be her last on the Warner label, the record company announced Tuesday.
The record will hit the shelves around the world on April 28, and in the United States one day later, the firm said. "Four Minutes" featuring former N-Sync singer Justin Timberlake, will be the first single on what will be Madonna's 11th studio album, and will be the first single released from it at the end of this month, it added.
Announcing the new album, Madonna said: "The title is a juxtaposition of tough and sweetness, kind of like I'm gonna kick your ass but it's going to make you feel good. And of course, I love candy."
UPDATE (3/5/08): Of course, this is merely a 'cover' explanation by the dark diva herself for the real reason behind the title. As stated above in my prediction it will be Madonna, with the help of Timbaland and others, who shall ignite the comming dark pop scene just as surely as the Beatles helped bring the psychedelic movement into the pop culture of the late 1960s.
For one thing the title, Hard Candy, takes its name from a suspense thriller of the same name from 2006 called Hard Candy, an ultra-violent film starring Ellen Page as a 14-year-old girl who lures a 32-year-old potential sexual predator to his castration and death via an internet romance. Most importantly though is the playful way Madonna has twisted this seemingly innocuous title, Hard Candy, from its true title, Dark Candy, which can be understood the following way:
The Middle English for the word 'dark' was 'darc.' Also, often in Middle English and Old French the 'H' is silent when at the beginning of a noun.
Thus, two of several ways 'Hard Candy' renders 'Dark Candy' is 1) by reversing Hard to Darh, swapping the 'h' and the 'c,' producing Darc Handy, and thus, Darc'andy (Darc Candy = Dark Candy), or, 2) in the Nostradamian-era method of anagrammatics, Hard Candy renders Darh Candy with one letter changed, the H, to a K (Darh Candy = Dark Candy). Also, hidden in this torrid tale of titles is the diva's own description of herself: Hard Candy = Darc Dhyan = the Indian goddess Dhyan = Diana, thus Darc Dhyan = Dark Diana. Is Madonna claiming to be the dark version of the late Princess Diana?
The new release from the album, Hard Candy, is 4 Minutes to Save the World, and it is a excellent preview of what is about to descend on the airwaves this summer:
One can clearly hear the dark, almost black anthem at work behind the lyrics, lyrics which themselves darkly ask questions of the listener as the world nears destruction. Again, as in the song Hung Up, the diva herself appears to be impatient about something or someone. There is very little time for one to decide what one really wants in life in this song .. and the dark dance anthem prods one to make a hasty decision ...

A girl of 13 killed herself after becoming obsessed with a fashion which links death with glamour, an inquest heard. Hannah Bond hanged herself from her bunk bed with a tie after becoming an "Emo".
Emo fans wear dark clothes, practise self-harm and listen to "suicide cult" rock bands.
Two weeks before her death, she started following U.S. band My Chemical Romance.
One of their songs contains the lyrics: "Although you're dead and gone, believe me your memory will go on."
Hannah, described as a model pupil, had started cutting her wrists but told her father it was part of an initiation into the Emo fashion. Hannah hanged herself not long after showing her father the cuts.
Ray and Heather Bond told the court their daughter had told them emo was "just a fashion." Coroner Roger Sykes said yesterday that Hannah's death was "not glamorous, just simply a tragic loss of a young life". Hannah's mother Heather told the inquest she had researched the trend since her daughter's death.
"There are websites that show pink teddies hanging themselves," she said. "She called Emo a fashion and I thought it was normal." She added: "Hannah was a normal girl. She had loads of friends. She could be a bit moody but I thought it was just because she was a teenager."
Hannah's father Ray, a karate teacher, said: "Two weeks before, I saw the cuts. I asked her about them and she said it was an Emo initiation. "She promised me she would never do it again."
Hannah gave her name as Living Disaster on her page on social networking website Bebo. The page is decorated with a picture of an Emo girl with bloody wrists after slashing herself. Another picture shows a child's exercise book scrawled with the words: "Dear Diary, today I give up. . ."
The inquest in Maidstone, Kent, heard Hannah had been with her boyfriend at a friend's house on the evening of September 22 last year. She had been angry when she was told she was not allowed to sleep over and when she got home in East Peckham she went straight to her room, saying: "I want to kill myself."
The inquest was told Hannah had not used drugs or alcohol before her death but Vanessa Everett, her head teacher at Mascalls School, said self-harm had become commonplace among other Emo fans.
Recording a verdict of suicide, Mr Sykes said: "The Emo overtones concerning death and associating it with glamour I find very disturbing."
The Emo phenomenon began in the U.S. in the 1980s. It is a largely teenage trend and is characterised by depression, self-injury and suicide. Followers wear tight jeans with studded belts and wristbands. Their hair is dyed black and worn in long fringes to obscure their faces.
Emo - from the word emotional - is a reference to the angst-filled lyrics and melancholy themes of the rock music central to the culture.
One of the foremost of these "suicide cult" bands is My Chemical Romance, from New Jersey. Their first single, Welcome to the Black Parade, from the album The Black Parade, was released in 2006 and became a huge hit, going to number one in Britain.
The concept album follows the story of a character called The Patient, who dies of cancer.
The Black Parade is a nickname for the place where Emo fans believe they will go when they die.
By Andy Bloxham

A 12-year-old girl hanged herself in her bedroom after visiting 'emo' websites to discuss suicide, an inquest has heard.
Rachel Jarvis was a fan of the 'emo' music of bands like My Chemical Romance and Evanescence, which is particularly popular among teenagers and often talks of suicide and describes dead fans as 'The Black Parade'.
Rachel's mother Maggie Jarvis, 35, told the inquest how she found her daughter on an American website called EmoStudent.com in November last year. Just two months later, in January, Mrs Jarvis found her daughter hanged in her bedroom, with her favourite music playing.
Rachel was taken to hospital but died two days later after suffering severe brain damage.
Police investigating the death later found long-sleeved shirts with bloodstains at the wrists and Rachel's diary containing poetry and entries describing eight previous suicide attempts.
The inquest, at Hull Coroners' Court, heard Rachel had told a male friend who introduced her to the website that she was cutting herself with a razor and had thought about killing herself. The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said in a statement read to the inquest: "In the first week that we were friends, she said that she was going to go and cut herself.
"Other people used to say 'don't hang around with her because she's weird and you will get depressed if you are around her' but I didn't listen to them."
Mrs Jarvis, a former housing advisor with four children, told the inquest that she had begun to argue with her daughter more often as she approached her teenage years.
On January 13, she said she was about to bathe and put her two young sons to bed when she noticed Rachel's music playing loudly and went upstairs to ask her to turn it down.
Mrs Jarvis, of Hull, East Yorkshire, said: "I went upstairs to ask her to turn it down otherwise they wouldn't get to sleep. That's when I found her."
Rachel was taken to Hull Royal Infirmary but died on January 15.
Recording a narrative verdict, East Yorkshire coroner Geoffrey Saul said it was not clear if Rachel had intended to kill herself. He said: "The evidence shows that she had talked to friends of hers about self harm but it doesn't seem that they were strong statements of immediate intention. There is no clear note although thoughts of death are mentioned. "The suspension was at her own hand but the question of intent remains unclear."
In May this year, 'emo' culture was blamed by a coroner for the death of 13-year-old Hannah Bond, of East Peckham, Kent, who hanged herself.
Emo is generally understood to stand for 'emotional hardcore' and developed from roots in punk music. Fans often paint their nails black and wear black eyeliner.
From Wales Online: "Her dance-centric performance of Music paid homage to 1980s rap music while dancers emerged from a train carriage onto the stage, but the shows crowning glory was during the lesser-known The Devil Wouldnt Recognise You, when a cloaked Madonna performed staccato dance moves in a cage while virtual water cascaded around her."
Comment (9/2/08): I notice that during the song the "water" transforms from clearly cascading and transparent images to solid white lava or magma-like liquid, splashing and erupting, cascading indeed like waves of molten lava in an old film splattering upon the souls of the damned, naked and cowering on rocks and cliffs in Hell, or tongues of plasma leaping up into the air from the surface of the sun. By the end of the song, she pops the buttons of her cloak mechanically, one by one, and, robot-like, walks off the piano one thudding step at a time. When she arrives to the platform she is aided by two people dressed in Far Eastern costumes and all three turn their backs to the audience, Madonna still singing "The Devil Wouldn't Recognise You" as they slowly move towards what can only be described as great, looming rectangular entrance to a huge furnace where they gradually disappear into mountainous fountains of cascading white lava and leaping white tongues of splashing fire.
Madonna has re-created the huge sacrificial furnace of Molech and it is indeed filled with white fire. As her huge crew grows increasingly more angry with their treatment one wonders how her anger will manifest when she arrives in Seville, Spain on September 16? See my Famous Female Icon On Fire in Spain prediction on 2008 (Part Two). Seville, Spain is the location specified in a Nostradamus quatain for a famous woman who is burned there and wishes to put "Innocents" to the fire as well.
Madonna seems to be playing out a transformation into the role of some obscure gothic goddess who then strips her clothes and becomes the goddess Ishtar as she bids adieu to all of her past incarnations. The final transformation is to take place inside the great furnace. Might she also say goodbye to her current "whore of Babylon" image? She appears to be grooming Britney Spears for the role .. but after all, the "whore of Babylon" is also the "mother of harlots."
But decide for yourselves what is happening here:
Lady Gaga, Rhianna, etc.

Note: This prediction appears in both the 1998 and 2000 manuscripts of my book, Nostradamus and the Final Age. It was slightly revised on October 11, 2003 and again August 23, 2006.
The Second Millennium has been an age of Marian visions -- the most famous of these occurring at Fatima in 1917. However, the 21st Century will usher in a new era of miracles.
Visitors will once again begin flocking to the Spencer estate in droves in 2007, the 10th aniversary of Diana's death. However, it will be during the dark months following the eruption of the supervolcano Yellowstone in 2008 that many will find comfort there for some reason, before, during, and after the eleventh Althorp summer. In October 2008 a slender red flame shaped like a female form will be spotted on the tiny island where Diana is buried. First it will be seen by a handful of people, then hundreds, then thousands of spectators. Soon hundreds of thousands will flock to observe Diana's flame-like apparition hovering above her grave, finally passing over to the temple that bears her name. Tears of joy and recognition will roll down their faces. At that time, she will impart a special message to the world.
Nostradamus foresaw this event as well.
Sacred ground, especially from Nostradamus' strict European Christian perspective, is usually burial ground: earth that has been consecrated by the Church or by a Christian ceremony made suitable for burial of the dead. Thus the "lady" whose voice is discerned coming from the ground is dead. Therefore, what we are experiencing in this quatrain is truly a miraculous event. A woman of tremendous importance, adored and loved in death as well as in life, returns to communicate a message to her worshippers and to the entire world.
Sadly, many Christian priests and pastors will dismiss the miracle as a hoax or as being of diabolical origin. They will not believe that this lady's appearance has been made possible by the grace of God. The reigning pope of that time will also share his Protestant brothers' scepticism. The backlash this causes will be horrendous. Those who claim the Apparition is diabolic will soon be locked in battle with those who believe Diana to be sainted by God. Many will be angered, leading to deadly feuds between the churches and against the churches. Many "sole ones" (monks, priests) will be killed.
I normally resist the doctrine that allows for the worship of saints and of idols, but the worship of Diana will be a reminder that the great Islamic Jihad against the West, now in progress and building, need never to have happened. Had Diana lived and her child been suffered to live and grow to manhood, we would not be facing a Third World War today:
This quatrain is describing an event that will occur around the same time as attention once again focuses upon the late Princess Diana. This new season of Diana will culminate in the Miracle at Althorp: Diana's apparition being seen and heard by millions of people worldwide. Ironically, this wondrous period shall also mark the Eve of World War III -- the nightmare from which all of us could have been saved if Diana had lived. The holocaust to come will be so far reaching that billions of bodies will be committed to the nuclear altar of Vulcan, the god of fire and destruction by fire.
Read the secret known until now only by Cheiro, Jeane Dixon, John the Revelator, the architects of the Pyramid of Cheops, and the king of prophets ... Nostradamus! Be happy and confident in a new Revelation.
Pope John Paul II waving from beyond the grave? Vatican
TV director says yes
By NICK PISA
21:21pm on 15th October 2007
This fiery figure is being hailed as Pope John Paul II making an appearance beyond the grave.
The image, said by believers to show the Holy Father with his right hand raised in blessing, was spotted during a ceremony in Poland to mark the second anniversary of his death.
Details appeared on the Vatican News Service, a TV station in Rome which specialises in religious news broadcasts.
October 16, 2007 (3:34 AM EDT): Although I failed to officially characterise it as such, 2008 shall be "year one" of the Age of Miracles both great and terrible. If you look over the three 2008 pages carefully you can see some of these miracles yourself, although I do not pretend to know them all. I should add there are more to post, so keep in touch.
One of the most dramatic of the miracles shall be the flame-like apparition of Princess Diana at Althorp, for upon this event shall Diana-ism and Christianity merge, reawakening a brief time when both Christianity and Paganism coexisted in harmony.
Roman politics eagerly embraced the sacrificed man-god but denied the divinity of the female, despite gnostic and other teachings to the contrary. What began as a cynical political maneuvre by the so-called church fathers shall soon come to an end and a new age begin. This merging, unfortunately, will not come without challenging the holy laws, persecution, and bloodshed.
It is ironic that the fiery sighting of John Paul II has occurred at exactly one year before the October 2008 vector when Diana's flaming apparition shall be seen above her island grave. John Paul II was the last pope to be elected during the 20th Century (the Century of the Sun) and Princess Diana, due to her namesake, can easily be associated with Diana, the ancient goddess of the Moon.
The harmonic convergence of Sun and Moon appear in many of Nostradamus' quatrains concerning Chiren Selin during the immediate post World War III era. Although there are doubtless many levels at play with this word combination, the inescapable conclusion is that the "Church pristine" under the Carolmingian holy emperor Chiren (Sun) shall merge with the doctrines of Selene (Moon) ... with Princess Diana in the role of the goddess.
Remember that all time is a Great Circle: the heroes of the present and the future shall become the stuff of myth and legend in the past, if we think of the past as something that lies both ahead and behind. That which is, shall be, and yet was.
Will there be other apparitions of fire and flame between now and the great drama at Althorp? I believe so; although not all shall necessarily be apparitions of the dead.
COMMENTS (10/23/08): Some have called this a UFO. I must say I have never heard of nor seen a pink UFO and I doubt very much this light is any kind of UFO activity. If it is supernatural at all I suspect it may have much more to do with the Diana apparition prediction than anything else. Remember Nostradamus says she will begin to appear as a flame. Although pink, this light has more in common with a flame than a UFO.
Let us see in the days ahead where this pretty light may (or may not) lead us ...

NEW PREDICTION: 9/18/06 -- Who will he be? The so-called Maitreya?
It is hard to say. He will arrive in the West in October 2008. It will not be anyone who has already been in the West frequently like the Dalai Lama or who lives in the West like Maharaji or Sun Myung Moon. I believe it will be someone wholly different and unexpected ... and he will be the real deal.
Whoever he is, his arrival was foretold better by Rigord of St. Denis than anyone, even Nostradamus. Note that he will not count himself amongst the prophets. He shall impart much secret wisdom to a people needing enlightenment during the dark period brought about by War and Nature.
His time in the West shall be short, but there will much mass media coverage and a major forum held, perhaps, in Washington DC.
