Astronomers have said the “blood moon” that took place during the early hours of Tuesday 15 April 2014 was the first in a rare consecutive series of four, which will take place over the next two years.

The phenomenon is called a tetrad of lunar eclipses and although the event is rare, Nasa have stated that several tetrads will occur during this century alone.

Although one tetrad appeared in 2003 and 2004, there have been gaps of up to 500 years between the series of eclipses.

The current tetrad will take place in 2014 and 2015, with the second eclipse on 8 October, the third on 4 April and the final eclipse on 28 September. The next series of four will not happen again until 2032.

Fred Espenak, a Nasa astrophysicist, said it was “most unusual” that the current four eclipses of the moon will be “visible for all or parts of the USA”.

He added: “During the 21st century, there are 8 sets of tetrads, so I would describe tetrads as a frequent occurrence in the current pattern of lunar eclipses.

“But this has not always been the case. During the three hundred year interval from 1600 to 1900, for instance, there were no tetrads at all.”

A lunar eclipse occurs when the Earth is positioned directly between the Sun and the moon. According to Nasa, the Earth is surrounded with a fiery light which beams into its shadow, giving the moon an amber glow.

The moon’s plane of orbit is slightly tilted, which is why a total eclipse does not occur every month.

Previous tetrads have coincided with significant religious and historic events and the current series of blood moons aligns the Jewish Passover, which takes place on 15 April, and feast of the Tabernacle in October.

In 1493, the first tetrad since the Middle Ages, saw the expulsion of Jews by the Catholic Spanish Inquisition, which rocked western Europe. The second coincided with the establishment of the State of Israel in 1949 and in 1967, one took place at the time of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day war.

Meanwhile, some Christians have cited fears that the event could have catastrophic consequences, referring to a passage in the Bible which reads: “The Sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the Lord comes.”

To reduce your risk of cancer, look no further than your fridge. “All the studies on cancer and nutrition point to eating plant-based foods for their phytonutrients and other special compounds,” says Richard Béliveau, PhD, chair in the prevention and treatment of cancer at the University of Québec at Montreal and author of Foods to Fight Cancer.

Aim for five to nine daily servings of all kinds of fruits and vegetables—especially these six superstars.

Broccoli

All cruciferous veggies (think cauliflower, cabbage, kale) contain cancer-fighting properties, but broccoli is the only one with a sizable amount of sulforaphane, a particularly potent compound that boosts the body’s protective enzymes and flushes out cancer-causing chemicals, says Jed Fahey, ScD. A recent University of Michigan study on mice found that sulforaphane also targets cancer…

Tsunami alert after 8.2 quake strikes off Chile

Thousands left their homes after the warning was issued, as Alpa Patel reports

A quake of 8.2 magnitude has struck off northern Chile, triggering a tsunami alert and killing at least five people.

The US Geological Survey said the quake struck at 20:46 local time (23:46 GMT) about 86km (52 miles) north-west of the mining area of Iquique.

Waves of up to 2.1m (6ft) have hit some areas in Chile, and there have been power cuts, fires and landslides.

Tens of thousands of people were evacuated in affected areas, where a state of emergency has been declared.

Chilean TV broadcast pictures of traffic jams as people tried to leave.

Officials said the dead included people who were crushed by collapsing walls or died of heart attacks.

Iquique Governor Gonzalo Prieto told local media that in addition to those killed, several people had been seriously injured.

While the government said it had no reports of significant damage to coastal areas, a number of adobe homes were reported destroyed in Arica.

Further damage may not be known until dawn. The tsunami warning in Chile will last at least until 08:00 GMT.

The quake shook modern buildings in Peru and in Bolivia’s high altitude capital of La Paz – more than 470km (290 miles) from Iquique.

At least eight strong aftershocks followed in the few hours after the quake, including a 6.2 tremor.

Downtown looks like a ghost town”

The Chilean interior ministry told the BBC that one of the main roads outside Iquique was cut off because of hillside debris.

The ministry says that partial landslides have also taken place between the towns of Putre and General Lagos.

The interior minister also told Chilean TV that some 300 women inmates had escaped from a prison in Iquique. The authorities are reported to have deployed a planeload of special forces to guard against looting.

Chilean Interior Minister Rodrigo Penailillo said President Michelle Bachelet was being kept informed. She is to travel to the affected area.

“We have taken action to ensure public order in the case of Iquique, where we’ve had a massive escape of more than 300 female prisoners, so that the armed forces and police can coordinate and provide security to the residents,” he said.

‘A big one’

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (TWC) issued an initial warning for Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia and Panama.

However, all warnings, watches and alerts were later lifted except for Chile and Peru.

Map

Tsunami watches – in which the danger of tidal waves is deemed to be less serious – had been in place for Costa Rica, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico and Honduras.

“Everyone along our coast should be alert and ready,” Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa said on Twitter.

Ecuador later reduced its alert but maintained a high level of vigilance for the Galapagos Islands.

High waves hit parts of the Chilean coast within 45 minutes of the quake. Pisagua, Patache and Iquique all saw big waves.

“We have asked citizens to evacuate the entire coast,” Chilean home office minister Mahmud Aleuy said.

Evacuations were also ordered in Peru, where waves 2m (6.5ft) above normal forced about 200 people to leave the seaside town of Boca del Rio near the Chilean border, police said.

A British expatriate near the northern Chilean city of Antofagasta told the BBC that there had been several tremors since the last quarter of last year.

“But this earthquake, even with the increased distance, seemed to last a lot longer,” Patrick Moore said.

“I was just sitting on my bed and normally these tremors using last at the very longest about 40 seconds – this one felt like it lasted about two minutes.

“I knew it was bad so I immediately went online to see what had happened and saw a tsunami warning that’s been put in place which confirmed my fears that it was a big one.”

Kurt Hertrampf, a hostel owner in Arica, told the BBC there was a big blackout in the town after the quake and he was surprised the telephone line was still working. He added: “Downtown looks like a ghost town.”

The area close to the epicentre is mineral rich, but none of the major copper companies reported any break in production.

Geologist Patrick Moore in the Atacama Desert: “I was lying on my bed and the room was shaking”

Chile is one of the most seismically active countries in the world.

Central and southern areas of the country were hit by a powerful earthquake of 8.8 magnitude quake followed by a tsunami that devastated scores of towns in February 2010.

In 1960 an area of Chile south of Concepcion was hit by a 9.5 magnitude which caused about 1,655 deaths and a tsunami in Hawaii and Japan.

The 9.0 magnitude quake that struck Japan on 11 March 2011 caused a devastating tsunami and left more than 15,000 people dead, with more than 3,200 missing.

A massive haboob swept through Phoenix on Tuesday, lingering above the Arizona capital for hours and creating an eyesore for residents. The dust storm picked up as a result of the showers and thunderstorms that popped around the state, with gusty outflow winds raising the elements. With another area of low pressure swinging a cold front in tomorrow, weather experts say another storm is likely. Arizona is no stranger to large dust storms, or haboobs, during the summer monsoon period, but meteorologists say Tuesday’s storm is unseasonably early. The National Weather Service…

(The short memories and thoughts make people missing)

It’s been years since I started impoverished people from thousands of miles away to seek, not a better life, but life itself.

Some of these travelers arrived survival and space that residents identify with the name of Greece.

While the natives were accustomed for many years to migrate themselves, in order to survive, now, exporting country slum-desperate workers, came to be accepted in their place, the same or even more impoverished fellow citizens from other parts of the globe.

The veneer of “development”, which captured obsessional Greek residents, created needs to be covered. Projects were designed to demonstrate “progress” started to be designed and made. Roads, industrial-craft buildings, homes, ports and airports began to grow at an unprecedented pace in the place. Dance of money got Dionysian form and other ancient mystics most swept into the vortex of the “most many, many more”.

Traditional subsistence work, first and foremost agricultural employment began to decline and occupations people focused on completely parasitic direction. The “production” is limited to providing services and in manufacturing luxury products, that not only do not solve any of the basic standards of human needs and concerns, but instead create a wave of greed and avarice in place.

To meet the needs food consumption was imported products, which could no longer produce the inhabitants of this country, being busy in the pursuit of glamor and status. Nobody wants their children to become ranchers, farmers and fishermen. This dream is all in suits and ties, as a morning dress, and sweatshirt-pole with trendy tzinakia for evening outings to cafés, bistros and tea rooms!

But because everything that is motivated by greed and the lie keeps little, began to appear the first signs of social – economic and moral crisis. These tried ideological tanks system, in cooperation with political, economic and spiritual exponents, not to redefine, let alone solve, but to meet or at least to push back in later years. A bright idea systemic was to make the Olympic Games, to stimulate, to feet of clay, the domestic economy. Party billion was designed and erected by bosses bosses. But I had to have bosses and workers. Albanians, Pakistanis and Egyptians were the most inexpensive and convenient solution to provide maximum benefit. Caravans “contraband” with the blessings of law and order, began to flood the place. As far as the issue is “Greece is becoming an attractive tourist destination,” so then, underground and organized systemic erected migration routes impoverished manual laborer for the “glory and the development of our country” and (only) the staff their yperploutismo.

managed to make the place a vast construction site waste and antisocial construction, using cheap (in money and lives) illegal immigrants (who themselves brought). As for the natives, they were content to office work, the preoccupation with the stock market and sports.

Like a parasite and flawed design, and the end came soon collapse. Lost urban properties, urban careers, civil and literal lives, but left hock in place of the workers – economic refugees, as a legacy from the era of prosperity.

Some of the workers – economic refugees, rammed deeper in europe but most were trapped here. Jobs and wages decreased, to the point of disappearance. Over one million people were without any prospect of a stranger, for them, a place, locked in situations worse and from those who lived before weeded.

But the system is not left untapped and this opportunity. They themselves confess, without shame, that “the crisis generates opportunities”! They had a huge pool of impoverished, ready for wildest still holding. Neglected occupations like agriculture, livestock and fisheries, reappeared in the spotlight as a new enrichment opportunities. Super-rich oligarchs bought large tracts of land at very low price, or at best, rented land with its owners. Smallholders fields made exclusively – perennial disposal of production contracts with packers and marketing agricultural – livestock and fishery products. Very hard work for producers, easy and great profit for their exploiters.

An example of the above area Manolada. Over 7,000 (current) economic refugees work in utterly inhuman conditions for either the smallholders of the fields, either directly for large predators. Often to “recruit” someone 10-20 economic refugees, to use the fields for 3-4 months and then, when the time of payment, to call the police to collect their “illegal immigrants”. And frequent phenomenon (by most humanists!) Use them to pay 10 to 12 euros per day.

All we learned about barbaric behavior of bosses and foremen, their previous years, against laborers – economic refugees. Who can forget the murders of those who called accruals, their humiliations and sufferings (like dragging the main street of Manolada worker-economic refugee with his hand caught in the car window);;;

But forget that, quite deliberately, is that bloody consume foods.

An attempt to boycott the “strawberry Manolada” Last year was such a time. The involvement of local nikokireoi was of little or minimal. Some alternative or hip leftists stopped buying strawberries Manolada and turned to strawberries Arcadia and Thessaly, as if there are conditions of production is even a little better.

This year has already started advertising on TV strawberries with 1 50 euro trays from LIDL, known multinational disposal cheap and low quality food products. The benches, street filled with strawberries and housewives as aspiring lovers, ran to get bloodied exotic fruit.

Maybe this year to decide some “sensitive” to boycott fraoules.Prepei but to know that the production Strawberry is only 7% of agricultural production Manolada. The region produces the same bloody cauliflower, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cabbages, potatoes, watermelons and melons.

With Boycott strawberry aktivizoume not face even briefly. Fragmented and supposedly symbolic moves are very easy to be addressed by the exploiters of human lives and needs of people for feeding.

Finally resolved the issue (in this society that exists) would be to obtain papers and identities that economic refugees-migrants and begin to enjoy all the civil rights aporeoun of the constitution (as they define it), such as labor rights, insurance, health care, decent living.

The following video will show you first time images of a camp laborers – economic refugees Manolada, not reentering anyone else except themselves.

The difficulties encountered to get to the camp was incredible. We watched closely and state cops and the minions of the exploiters. The hardest but was suspicion themselves economic refugees. While some found to lead us in the camp, just walked, appeared other patriots who threatened us and their countrymen that will shout the “bosses” and that everyone would have “consequences”.

In “visit” accompanied us to the camp and a companion, who gave us a suspected rudimentary security (as can feel it in an area of ​​approximately 1,000 impoverished and terrorized people).

the conditions in which they live you can see for yourself your. Just imagine that with the rains and cold winter, the camp was a vast mudflat that made even walking in it a real adventure. The shots were taken in august we went and did not have presented so far because we respected a verbal agreement.

As for the title …

The “land of the damned” is not only economic refugees but those who allow such things to happen in their backyard. Protecting and fighting for the life and dignity of economic refugees in essence fighting for our future in a system that has decided to xanasystisei conditions of medieval life and manage to xanakatastisei every man serf and mercy of moods of the market and rich: neoliberalism or as I prefer to call him, the neofeoudarchias.
