Facebook, American company offering online social networking services. Facebook was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg, Eduardo Saverin, Dustin Moskovitz, and Chris Hughes, all of whom were students at Harvard University. Facebook became the largest social network in the world, with more than one billion users as of 2012, and about half that number were using Facebook every day. The company’s headquarters are in Menlo Park, California.

Access to Facebook is free of charge, and the company earns most of its money from advertisements on the Web site. New users can create profiles, upload photos, join a preexisting group, and start new groups. The site has many components, including Timeline, a space on each user’s profile page where users can post their content and friends can post messages Status, which enables users to alert friends to their current location or situation and News Feed, which informs users of changes to their friends’ profiles and status. Users can chat with each other and send each other private messages. Users can signal their approval of content on Facebook with the Like button, a feature that also appears on many other Web sites.

The attractiveness of Facebook stems in part from cofounder Zuckerberg’s insistence from the very beginning that members be transparent about who they are users are forbidden from adopting false identities. The company’s management argued that transparency is necessary for forming personal relationships, sharing ideas and information, and building up society as a whole. It also noted that the bottom-up, peer-to-peer connectivity among Facebook users makes it easier for businesses to connect their products with consumers.

The company has a complicated early history. It began at Harvard University in 2003 as Facemash, an online service for students to judge the attractiveness of their fellow students. Because the primary developer, Zuckerberg, violated university policy in acquiring resources for the service, it was shut down after two days. Despite its mayflylike existence, 450 people (who voted 22,000 times) flocked to Facemash. That success prompted Zuckerberg to register the URL http://www.thefacebook.com in January 2004. He then created a new social network at that address with fellow students Saverin, Moskovitz, and Hughes.

The social network TheFacebook.com launched in February 2004. Harvard students who signed up for the service could post photographs of themselves and personal information about their lives, such as their class schedules and clubs they belonged to. Its popularity increased, and soon students from other prestigious schools, such as Yale and Stanford universities, were allowed to join. By June 2004 more than 250,000 students from 34 schools had signed up, and that same year major corporations such as the credit-card company MasterCard started paying for exposure on the site.

In September 2004 TheFacebook added the Wall to a member’s online profile. This widely used feature let a user’s friends post information on their Wall and became a key element in the social aspect of the network. By the end of 2004, TheFacebook had reached one million active users. However, the company still trailed the then-leading online social network, Myspace, which boasted five million members.

The year 2005 proved to be pivotal for the company. It became simply Facebook and introduced the idea of “tagging” people in photos that were posted to the site. With tags, people identified themselves and others in images that could be seen by other Facebook friends. Facebook also allowed users to upload an unlimited number of photos. In 2005 high-school students and students at universities outside the United States were allowed to join the service. By year’s end it had six million monthly active users.

In 2006 Facebook opened its membership beyond students to anyone over the age of 13. As Zuckerberg had predicted, advertisers were able to create new and effective customer relationships. For example, that year, household product manufacturer Procter & Gamble attracted 14,000 people to a promotional effort by “expressing affinity” with a teeth-whitening product. This kind of direct consumer engagement on such a large scale had not been possible before Facebook, and more companies began using the social network for marketing and advertising.

Privacy remains an ongoing problem for Facebook. It first became a serious issue for the company in 2006, when it introduced News Feed, which consisted of every change that a user’s friends had made to their pages. After an outcry from users, Facebook swiftly implemented privacy controls in which users could control what content appeared in News Feed. In 2007 Facebook launched a short-lived service called Beacon that let members’ friends see what products they had purchased from participating companies. It failed because members felt that it encroached on their privacy. Indeed, a survey of consumers in 2010 put Facebook in the bottom 5 percent of companies in customer satisfaction largely because of privacy concerns, and the company continues to be criticized for the complexity of its user privacy controls and for the frequent changes it makes to them.

In 2008 Facebook surpassed Myspace as the most-visited social media Web site. With the introduction of Live Feed, the company also took a competitive swing at the growing popularity of Twitter, a social network that runs a live feed of news service-like posts from members whom a user follows. Similar to Twitter’s ongoing stream of user posts, Live Feed pushed posts from friends automatically to a member’s homepage. (Live Feed has since been incorporated into News Feed.)

Facebook has become a powerful tool for political movements, beginning with the U.S. presidential election of 2008, when more than 1,000 Facebook groups were formed in support of either Democratic candidate Barack Obama or Republican candidate John McCain. In Colombia the service was used to rally hundreds of thousands in protests against the antigovernment FARC guerrilla rebellion. In Egypt, activists protesting the government of Pres. Hosni Mubarak during the uprising of 2011 often organized themselves by forming groups on Facebook.

Facebook encourages third-party software developers to use the service. In 2006 it released its application programming interface (API) so that programmers could write software that Facebook members could use directly through the service. By 2009 developers generated about $500 million in revenue for themselves through Facebook. The company also earns revenues from developers through payments for virtual or digital products sold through third-party applications. By 2011 payments from one such company, Zynga Inc., an online game developer, accounted for 12 percent of the company’s revenues.

In February 2012 Facebook filed to become a public company. Its initial public offering (IPO) in May raised $16 billion, giving it a market value of $102.4 billion. By contrast, the largest IPO of an Internet company to date was that of the search-engine company Google Inc., which had raised $1.9 billion when it went public in 2004. By the end of the first day of the stock’s trading, Zuckerberg’s holdings were estimated at more than $19 billion.


Mount St. Helens erupts

1. A series of small earthquakes near Mount St. Helens in Washington state begin in March of 1980.

2. Earthquakes throughout the month increased the volcanic activity, and near the end of the month, the volcano had its first eruption in over one hundred years as a series of steam explosions blew a crater into the summit, releasing ash.

3. The volcano remained active through most of April but then ceased activity for a number of days.

4. Volcanic activity began again in May.

5. By the middle of May on May 18 the pressure had built and Mount St. Helens experienced a huge eruption that created avalanches, explosions, large ash clouds, mudslides, and massive damage to the surrounding area.

6. A total of 57 people were killed as a result of the volcanic blast.


Revelation13.net

Revelation13.net: Prophecies Calendar, recent Past and Future dates -- 2021 2022 to 2025 -- New Age, Nostradamus, Bible prophecy, King James version Bible Code, and Astrology Predictions of World Events


A listing of important dates, past and future, of importance to the theories of this site:

ASTROLOGY ALIGNMENT IN 2021: ASTROLOGY CLUSTER IN AQUARIUS ON FEBRUARY 12 2021 MAY INDICATE A POSITIVE ENERGY THEN, POSSIBLY RELATED TO THE COVID VACCINES. AND ALSO A POSITIVE FORCE IN THIS COUNTRY WITH THE ELECTION VICTORY OF PRESIDENT BIDEN, CONGRATULATIONS PRESIDENT BIDEN AND BEST WISHES IN 2021.

Its great that President Biden was elected, this will result in a more positive and capable government for the United States compared to the last 4 years. The January 6 2021 coup attempt could have ended democracy in the U.S. and turned the U.S. into a dictatorship. I think the force behind that coup attempt and the dark and disturbing things that have happened over the past 4 years was the Antichrist Russian President Putin. If the U.S. had been turned into a dictatorship on January 6, then this could have put the U.S. under Putin's control in his attempt to take over the world. I think Putin was using his hypnotic mind control powers to control the previous President.

But note that COVID-19 has slowed down global warming by reducing air, sea, and car travel. I wonder if COVID-19 may have been created by aliens to prepare for an alien UFO invasion (described below) within a few years, by slowing down environmental destruction. And COVID-19 may be modifying human DNA, viruses can find their way into human DNA, in preparation for alien takeover. Note Revelation 2:10 "be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life". Crown of Life - could that be as a result of DNA changes from the Coronavirus? Could it be modifying human DNA in some unknown way? Aliens could be showing up in 2021 or 2022.

December 14, 2020. Total Solar Eclipse. Followed by December 21 2020, conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in the Evening Sky, so close that they appear to merge, so this is also a Jupiter - Saturn Astrology Conjunction. This is the Astrology chart. A very ominous alignment. From Coronavirus mutation, becoming the 4th horseman Death? It was announced then that a faster-spreading COVID-19 Mutation was spreading in the U.K., and another in South Africa, see this page.


PROPHECIES AND PREDICTIONS FOR 2021 2022 - 2025. ASTROLOGY CLUSTER IN AQUARIUS IN FEBRUARY 2021 MAY INDICATE A POSITIVE ENERGY THEN. THE END TIMES EVENTS AND DISASTERS COULD OCCUR IN 2021 - 2025: THE ANTICHRIST RUSSIAN PRESIDENT PUTIN ATTEMPTS TO TAKE OVER THE WORLD. ALIEN UFO INVASION IN 2022-2030? WATCH OUT FOR UFOS AND ALIENS CONQUEST OF EARTH! THE FOUR HORSEMEN OF THE APOCALYPSE RIDING? THE FOURTH HORSEMAN OF THE APOCALYPSE DEATH RIDING AS A CORONAVIRUS WORLD EPIDEMIC IN 2021, AND COVID-19 HAS SET THE THIRD HORSEMAN ECONOMIC DEPRESSION AND DISASTER RIDING. WATCH OUT FOR GIANT VOLCANO ERUPTIONS AND EARTHQUAKES MAGNITUDE 8 AND 9 AROUND THE WORLD IN 2021 - 2025. THERE WAS AN ASTEROID NEAR-MISS and HIT IN RUSSIA ON FEBRUARY 15 2013. MORE ASTEROIDS MAY HIT SOON AS PROPHESIED IN REVELATION 8, RELATES TO THE RISE OF THE ANTICHRIST PUTIN IN RUSSIA. THE PROPHECIES OF NOSTRADAMUS PREDICTED THE RISE OF THREE ANTICHRISTS - THE FIRST TWO WERE NAPOLEON AND HITLER, THE THIRD IS PUTIN.

This web site includes a discussion of the Book of Revelation, the last chapter of the Bible, which includes a description of a catastrophic sequence of events that some people believe are occurring now, and may occur in 2021 - 2025. These include earthquakes (such as the giant Indonesia earthquake and tidal wave in Dec. 2004 and the Japan magnitude 9 quake in 2011), wars, diseases (such as Coronavirus and Bird or Swine Flu), economic chaos, weather changes (global warming and superstorms), and the rise to power of an evil dictator, called the Antichrist. He is identified by the number 666. Also in Revelation there are the four horsemen of the Apocalypse -- the Antichrist, the conqueror, on a white horse war, on a red horse economic depression, on a black horse and death rides a pale horse, and hell rides with him. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are said to ride as the Antichrist rises to power. Also in Revelation, there are descriptions of angels, but the angel there can be an angel of death, carrying plagues. There is also a description in Revelation 8 of what appears to be an asteroid or comet hitting earth, destroying much of life on earth.
In Revelation Chapter 1: John, on the island of Patmos near Greece, sees Christ, as he is exiled on this island after the death of Christ. Christ appears among 7 golden candlesticks. This may be the John who was Christ's disciple, or it could be another John. Christ shows John visions of events to occur in the distant future, during a period of time in the future called the End Times. Christ refers to himself as "Alpha and Omega" to John in this vision, and since Alpha in Greek represents the number 1, and Omega represents 800, this gives us a number of 801. My painting shows Christ among the 7 golden candlesticks, with UFOs and an angel in the background. I believe there is a Christ - UFO connection, where Christ is an alien, refer to Revelation 19 on this, where Christ returns in the future leading a fleet of UFOs.

IN AUGUST 1999 WHEN PUTIN FIRST ROSE TO POWER IN RUSSIA, THERE WAS A RARE GRAND CROSS ASTROLOGY PATTERN OF PLANETS IN A CROSS SHAPE, AND A TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE OVER EUROPE, INDICATING THAT PUTIN IS THE EVIL ANTICHRIST OF REVELATION 13 WHOSE NUMBER IS 666.

September 2017. The Cassini Saturn space probe crashed into Saturn/Satan. Cassini's connection to Putin: Putin first rose to power on August 9 1999. Also then, the day of the Astrology Grand Cross in the sky: August 18 1999, was the day after Cassini, carrying Plutonium, passed close to earth. Also a solar eclipse over Europe then. And 1999 has 666 upside-down, 666 being the number of the Antichrist in Revelation 13. This August 1999 Grand Cross, which is one of the most amazing astrological alignments ever seen in history, consisted of: the Sun, Venus, and Mercury in the sign of Leo, Mars and the Moon in Scorpio with Pluto close by in Sagittarius, Saturn and Jupiter in Taurus, and Neptune and Uranus in Aquarius. If Scorpio is considered to be the Eagle, and Aquarius the man, then we have the four beasts seen in Revelation 4 that sit at the throne in heaven, that have the faces of an eagle, a man, a lion, and a calf. This seems to indicate an important time for mankind I think it may also relate to the rise to power of the Antichrist in year 2000 as Russian President Putin, especially since there was a cross pattern. Note that Putin first rose to power in Russia in August 1999, becoming 2nd in command in Russia then, thus the significance of this Grand Cross Astrology pattern in August 1999. Also, note that August 13, 1999 was Friday the 13th, said to be an unlucky day. Also note that August 9, 1999, was the 30th anniversary of the Charles Manson group's murder of Sharon Tate and others in Los Angeles, significant because of the Charles Manson group's Satanic-like cult.
Also: August 13 1999 was the significant future date on the Aztec Sun calendar from Mexico of 500 years ago, and August 13 1999 was predicted by the Aztecs to be an important day of change for mankind, that would change the world, as described in the book: "Day of Destiny, Where will you be on August 13 1999?", by John Mini, published 1998 by Trans-Hyperborean Institute of Science.

Considering again Cassini going to Saturn: as for the planet Saturn, possibly Saturn represents "Satan"-- the Antichrist is said to be a Satanic imitation of Christ, actually the son of Satan. So the journey to Saturn actually may be the journey of mankind to "Satan". Also note that in Greek, where each letter is also a number, "Titan" totals 666, another indication of the Cassini landing on Titan being connected with the Antichrist. Note that Titan (representing the Antichrist?) revolves around Saturn/Satan.

This site proposes that events described in the Bible's Book of Revelation are coming true now, as described on the first page. This site has my vision, my visions and prophecies. Astrology and New Age ideas are also discussed on this site. Chaos in the world today I think is caused by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse riding, in particular the Third Horseman Economic Chaos. The Fourth Horseman Death could ride with Coronavirus or H1N1 or Bird Flu. There is also concern over the Second Horseman War riding in 2021-2025 (Iran, Russia - Ukraine invasion, Russia invades other countries, Middle East, ISIS, Syria, China. Conspiracy theory and theories, on world events.

An evil dictator called the Antichrist, described in Revelation 13, is in my opinion Russian President Putin, and an evil alliance of the dragon-lion-bear to take over the world (from Revelation 13: the Antichrist has the mouth of a lion, feet of a bear, and gets his power from the dragon) is Red China-Hong Kong (Hong Kong a former British colony, so the Lion symbol)-Russia, which is forming as part of the alliance against the U.S., consisting of Russia, China, and other (former Soviet) nations:

A second meaning of the lion is Iran, where before the Islamic Revolution Iran had a Lion on its flag, indicating a Russia-China-Iran military alliance, with Russia helping Iran build the A-Bomb by helping it with its nuclear program, and Russia has been selling military equipment such as missles to Iran.

Note: One reason why a Southern California large earthquake has not occurred is because there may be an alien UFO base off the coast of Los Angeles (LA), and the aliens may be preventing a Southern California San Andreas Fault quake which could damage their underwater base. They may be slowly releasing the earth stress to prevent a quake there. A lot of UFOs have been seen entering and leaving the deep water off the coast of L.A., so its very likely they have an underwater base there. Therefore it is unlikely there will be a major Southern California Quake in future years. Controlling earthquakes is easy for these aliens.

This page has a calendar of predicted world events, and astrology and astronomy alignments, with predictions based on astrology, New Age ideas, Bible prophecy including the Book of Revelation, the King James version Bible Code, and numerical analysis.

The King James English Bible Code:
Also, see the pages on the King James bible code which discuss King James Bible code patterns in matrices I generated on my computer, using Bible Code software.

An asteroid hits in the ocean, causing a giant tidal wave, and splitting into 7 pieces, so 7 impacts and also a disease plague.

The giant star Eta Carinae could turn into a giant supernova.

Prophecies in the Psalms:
See the section on this page on J.R. Church's excellent book "Hidden Prophecies in the Psalms" (published by Prophecy Publications, 1990), J.R. Church discovered a pattern where events in years in the 20th century correspond to Psalms of that year number (Psalm 48 corresponds to year 1948, for example, and the birth of the state of Israel then Psalm 67 would correspond to 1967 and Israel conquering Jerusalem then), from the point of view of Israel and the Middle East.
This pattern may continue with Psalm 101, since September 11 occurred in 2001, and Psalm 101:8 ". cut off all wicked doers from the city of the Lord". Could that be about New York City, which is a very religious city, having two great cathedrals.
And the Psalms pattern may agree with the predictions for future years on this page, for years 2021 - 2028, corresponding to Psalms 121 - 128. And even up to 2050, corresponding to Psalm 150.

-- Psalm 113: Could it be about 2013, "The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens." ". to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth". Note that there was a bright comet in March 2013 and also November 2013.
-- Psalm 121:1 . "which made heaven and earth." THIS MAY INDICATE THAT 2021 IS WHEN ALIENS SHOW UP!
-- Psalm 122:3 "Jerusalem is builded as a city". Could this be in 2022 Revelation 21:2, 10-26, where a New Jerusalem comes down to earth from outer space. Apparently an alien UFO invasion installs this giant city on earth as a new world headquarters, with the returned Christ as lead alien.
-- Psalm 123:1 "Unto thee lift I up mine eyes, O thou that dwellest in the heavens." Alien invasion?
-- Psalm 127:1 "build the house" - building of the New Jerusalem in 2027? A new reorganized world, after alien invasion?
-- Psalm 128:5: mentions Jerusalem. The building of the New Jerusalem continues in 2028?
-- Psalm 150: Refer to Psalm 150: "in the firmament of his power". About alien takeover of earth, completed in 2050?

So the Psalms may have prophecies describing world events over 150 years from 1900-2050.


Putin is attempting to destroy NATO and take over the world. Do not underestimate Putin - Putin has hypnosis mind control powers he can use to control people, hypnotizing them by staring at them, his eyes are said to be intense and hypnotizing. Others who could hypnotize people with their gaze were Rasputin and Hitler. At Armageddon, World War 3, of Revelation 16, there is a great nuclear war centered in the Middle East. So will Putin launch a nuclear missile attack? Starting World War 3? The Antichrist is defeated by the returned Christ, as described in Revelation 19. The returned Christ with his armies (of aliens and UFOs) may actually be an invasion of earth by aliens in UFOs, read Revelation 19 and it sounds like that. Likely the Christ will return on a UFO beginning a UFO invasion of earth as described in Revelation 19. Revelation 19:11 King James version: "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse" (UFO). 19:14 "And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses" (UFOs), 19:15 "And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations" (powerful UFO weapon defeats the nations of earth). My painting of Christ leading a UFO alien invasion of Earth:

And the 144,000 chosen ones will gather with the Christ, as described in Revelation 7 and 14, and these 144,000 will assist the Christ in taking over earth in an alien invasion of earth and the coming of the New Jerusalem city down to earth from outer space. The New Jerusalem will become the world headquarters of the returned Christ and the alien invasion force once they take over earth. A reason for invasion may be that the aliens are concerned about global warming and the destruction of the environment of earth, refer to Revelation 11:18 "shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth". Could the invading UFOs and aliens be W56 aliens, see this page on W56 aliens. Also, possibly "The Rapture" where millions of people on earth disappear, could be related to aliens: millions of people abducted by aliens during alien invasion of earth.

(These paintings by T. Chase. Shown here is the alien invasion of earth and the aliens at their home planet that has 2 suns.)

(Paintings by T. Chase - Christ returns on a UFO as described in Revelation 19. And the New Jerusalem is brought down to earth.).

And the New Jerusalem of Revelation 21 could be a giant alien city that comes down to earth after the alien invasion . Revelation 21:10 "and showed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God." Revelation 21 and 22 seem to be describing the reorganizing of earth by aliens. Revelation 21:1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth". Reorganizing of earth under Christ/alien government, maybe even earth passes into another dimension.

So Christ would be lead alien. Revelation 7 and 14 discuss the 144000 chosen ones, who gather with the Christ, I think in New York City, in Revelation 14. These 144000 are sealed in their foreheads, I think that means they are alien abductees who have been given brain implants by the aliens in their foreheads, in preparation for the alien invasion. They assist the Christ lead alien in taking over the earth.

And note:
Revelation 22:
22:1 "And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal. " 22:2 "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life. "
"River of water of life" - this would be DNA. "tree of life" - that is the evolution of life. This mention of DNA in Revelation 22 may mean that aliens will modify human DNA. Maybe they modify DNA to make man more peaceful and bring a world government run by the aliens: 22:2: "and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations". The Nostradamus page at the end of it discusses 3 Nostradamus prophecies on this alien takeover of earth. Also see the section on this page on the German prophet, who predicted in the future the rule of the "Great White King" who will bring peace on earth, which sounds like Christ/alien takeover of earth.

A 2015 book to read on the idea that aliens are preparing to takeover earth now, by putting alien-human hybrids that are half-alien into the human population on earth. But they look like regular people. They could be your neighbors. And that alien invasion of earth may be soon. A serious and very scary book: "Walking Among Us: The Alien Plan to Control Humanity" by David Jacobs. What is super-creepy is these insect-like aliens are the head aliens, they look like a praying mantis. They are like the queen bees, that control the other aliens with their psychic powers. And there are these alien-human hybrids that are being created to infiltrate the human race and take over earth. Note Revelation 9:3 (King James version) "And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth. ". Locusts - similar to the praying mantis - like lead aliens.
Another very interesting book on aliens on earth, but it does not focus on the alien invasion idea. It says there are several different alien groups with bases on earth now: "Earth: An Alien Enterprise", by Timothy Good.

And could this be about alien invasion:
Isaiah 13:5: "They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land."

2021. PSALM 121 MAY INDICATE THAT 2021 IS WHEN ALIENS APPEAR.

January 6 2021. Certification of the electoral vote for Joe Biden by Congress, see this King James Bible Code page, and a mob broke into and attacked the Capital Building and Congress in Washington D.C. Its great that President Biden was elected, this will result in a more positive and capable government for the United States compared to the last 4 years. The January 6 2021 coup attempt could have ended democracy in the U.S. and turned the U.S. into a dictatorship. I think the force behind that coup attempt and the dark and disturbing things that have happened over the past 4 years was the Antichrist Russian President Putin. If the U.S. had been turned into a dictatorship on January 6, then this could have put the U.S. under Putin's control in his attempt to take over the world. I think Putin was using his hypnotic mind control powers to control the previous President.

January 20 2021. President Biden was officially President.

February 12 2021: a planet cluster in Aquarius may indicate a positive energy then, possibly related to the COVD vaccines. And a positive force in 2021 with the election victory of President Biden. Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn in Aquarius then, Pluto close by in Capricorn. This should be a positive energy. Also, Aquarius I would associate with aliens, see my Nostradamus page where I relate "Aquilon" in the Nostradamus prophecies to aliens.

March 4 2021. The previous President was prophesied to neturn to power on this date, but fortunately that did not happen.

March 23 2021. Astrology: Aries-Pisces planetary cluster. Around this time a COVID-19 epidemic began in India that went out of control. Apparently caused by the COVID-19 B1617 India Variant. Relate this to Revelation 16:17, this could indicate that this B1617 variant is the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse Death.

June 10 2021. Annular Solar Eclipse. See in Northern Hemisphere.

August 19 2021. Jupiter at opposition, at its brightest.

December 4, 2021. Total Solar Eclipse, seen in Antarctica and Southern Atlantic Ocean.

2022. The year of alien invasion of earth by the Anunnaki aliens, according to the book: "Anunnaki: UFOs, Extraterrestials", by Maximillien de Lafayette, published 2008 by Amazon.com Company. See this page. Predicts that the Anunnaki take over earth then, and use antimatter to "clean" the earth and humans. And Christ returns also then.

March 3 2022. Powerful astrology pattern: a double conjunction of Mercury and Saturn at 19 Aquarius, and a triple conjunction of Venus, Mars, Pluto at 27 Capricorn. This could relate to March 27 2022 and possibly aliens.

March 27 2022. According to the book "Intervention", (by Alan Butler, Watkins Publishing, 2012), March 27 2022 could be a critical date for revealing the future. I wonder if it could relate to alien invasion then? The book "Intervention" comes up with the 3-27-2022 date by relating it to a number 27.322 related to the moon, and the unusual numerical facts related to the moon. This book proposes that the moon being unlike other satellites of the solar system, it appears to have been designed and parked in orbit around the earth, possibly by people in the future, to allow intelligent life to develop on earth. Note that there is an unusual astrology pattern on that 3-27-2022 date, of planets in 2 clusters in Aquarius (Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn) and Aries-Pisces (Sun and Mercury in Aries, Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces).

Nov. 4 2022. 100 years since King Tut's tomb was discovered in Egypt in November 4 1922 by English archaeologist Howard Carter, unleashing the Curse of King Tutankhamun as Hitler rising to power then, a curse on England and the world. Will King Tut's curse be unleashed again as the Antichrist Putin, the 4 horsemen of the Apocalypse, asteroids hitting earth, solar flares, earthquakes, and nuclear war? Or alien invasion? The Nov. 4 1922 Astrology Chart has a Grand Water Trine pattern, a powerful Astrology pattern with planets in 3 water signs in a triangle shape.

The Nov. 4 2022 Astrology chart has grouping of planets in 2 water signs, Scorpio and Pisces, so it is similar.

March 2023: Saturn in Aquarius ending March 7 2023. Pluto in Aquarius beginning March 24 2023. Possibly connected with alien invasion.

Dec. 2023. 60 666 day intervals from August 1914, refer to this page.

April 8 2024. Solar eclipse across the U.S.. 3 solar eclipses across the U.S. in 2017, 2024, and 2045. This Solar Eclipse could indicate a bad period for the U.S. in 2024. Look at what happened to the U.S. in 2017 when there was a solar eclipse across the U.S., the U.S. entered a dark 4 year period in 2017 ending on January 20 2021, that saw the COVID-19 epidemic, and almost ended up in dictatorship in the U.S. on January 6 2021. A previous solar eclipse that crossed the U.S. on June 8 1918 saw the U.S. in World War 1 and the 1918 Flu Epidemic. Astrology chart:

February 3 2029. According to UFO contactee Billy Meier, the Age of Aquarius begins on Feb. 3 2029, ending on Feb. 3 3999. (Note that Billy Meier also said that the Age of Pisces ended on Feb. 3 1844, and then there was a transition period to the Age of Aquarius, with its second half of the transition period beginning on 2/3/1937.) Reference: "And still they fly!", by Guido Moosbrugger, Published by Steelmark, 2004.

March 11 2029. Powerful astrology pattern of a Grand Earth Trine, with planets in a triangle shape in Astrology Earth Signs, and a planet cluster in Pisces-Aries.

May 28 2032. Cluster of planets in Gemini: Sun, Venus, Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus.

2038. Refer to the page on 666 day intervals, a 17 666 day cycle of 31 years beginning in 2007 ends on August 1 2038. Is this 31 year phase about the rise of the antichrist and completes the alien invasion of earth?

To summarize:
17 cycles of 666 days = 31 years. Note that the first 31 year period began with the start of World War 1, August 1914, and ended when World War 2 was over, August 1945, and saw the rise and defeat of Fascism. The second 31 year period ended in 1976, with a series of disasters and the death of Chairman Mao, and Communism was declining then. The third 31 year period ended in 2007, with the Antichrist Putin rising to power. The next 31 year period ends in August 2038, possibly with alien invasion of earth, after the rise and fall of the Antichrist Putin.

August 12 2045. Solar eclipse across the U.S.. Could indicate a bad energy for the U.S. in 2045. The 2024 and 2045 eclipses form an X across the U.S. with the intersection in Arkansas. Astrology chart:

2050. Refer to Psalm 150: "in the firmament of his power". About alien takeover of earth, completed in 2050?

3010. Satan released from prison, after 1000 years of imprisonment, and new wars of conquest and another Armageddon?


Vitamin B12 Deficiency: Recognition and Management

Patient information : A handout on this topic is available at https://familydoctor.org/vitamin-b-12.

Author disclosure: No relevant financial affiliations.

Article Sections

Vitamin B12 deficiency is a common cause of megaloblastic anemia, various neuropsychiatric symptoms, and other clinical manifestations. Screening average-risk adults for vitamin B12 deficiency is not recommended. Screening may be warranted in patients with one or more risk factors, such as gastric or small intestine resections, inflammatory bowel disease, use of metformin for more than four months, use of proton pump inhibitors or histamine H2 blockers for more than 12 months, vegans or strict vegetarians, and adults older than 75 years. Initial laboratory assessment should include a complete blood count and serum vitamin B12 level. Measurement of serum methylmalonic acid should be used to confirm deficiency in asymptomatic high-risk patients with low-normal levels of vitamin B12. Oral administration of high-dose vitamin B12 (1 to 2 mg daily) is as effective as intramuscular administration for correcting anemia and neurologic symptoms. Intramuscular therapy leads to more rapid improvement and should be considered in patients with severe deficiency or severe neurologic symptoms. Absorption rates improve with supplementation therefore, patients older than 50 years and vegans or strict vegetarians should consume foods fortified with vitamin B12 or take vitamin B12 supplements. Patients who have had bariatric surgery should receive 1 mg of oral vitamin B12 per day indefinitely. Use of vitamin B12 in patients with elevated serum homocysteine levels and cardiovascular disease does not reduce the risk of myocardial infarction or stroke, or alter cognitive decline.

Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) is a water-soluble vitamin obtained through the ingestion of fish, meat, and dairy products, as well as fortified cereals and supplements.1 , 2 It is coabsorbed with intrinsic factor, a product of the stomach's parietal cells, in the terminal ileum after being extracted by gastric acid1 , 2 ( Figure 1 3 ) . Vitamin B12 is crucial for neurologic function, red blood cell production, and DNA synthesis, and is a cofactor for three major reactions: the conversion of methylmalonic acid to succinyl coenzyme A the conversion of homocysteine to methionine and the conversion of 5-methyltetrahydrofolate to tetrahydrofolate.1 , 2

SORT: KEY RECOMMENDATIONS FOR PRACTICE

Patients with risk factors for vitamin B12 deficiency should be screened with a complete blood count and serum vitamin B12 level.

A serum methylmalonic acid level may be used to confirm vitamin B12 deficiency when it is suspected but the serum vitamin B12 level is normal or low-normal.

Oral and injectable vitamin B12 are effective means of replacement, but injectable therapy leads to more rapid improvement and should be considered in patients with severe deficiency or severe neurologic symptoms.

Patients who have had bariatric surgery should receive 1 mg of oral vitamin B12 per day indefinitely.

In the United States and the United Kingdom, the prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency is approximately 6% in persons younger than 60 years, and nearly 20% in those older than 60 years.1 Latin American countries have a clinical or subclinical deficiency rate of approximately 40%.1 The prevalence is 70% in Kenyan school children, 80% in East Indian preschool-aged children, and 70% in East Indian adults.1 Certain risk factors increase the prevalence of vitamin B12 deficiency (Table 1) .4 , 5 Dietary insufficiency, pernicious anemia (i.e., an autoimmune process that reduces available intrinsic factor and subsequent absorption of vitamin B121 , 2 , 6 , 7), and long-term use of metformin or acid-suppressing medications have been implicated in B12 deficiency.8 , 9

A multicenter randomized controlled trial of 390 patients with diabetes mellitus showed that those taking 850 mg of metformin three times per day had an increased risk of vitamin B12 deficiency (number needed to harm = 14 per 4.3 years) and low vitamin B12 levels (number needed to harm = 9 per 4.3 years) vs. placebo.8 This effect increased with duration of therapy, and patients had an unclear prophylactic supplementation response. 8 A case-control study that compared 25,956 patients who had vitamin B12 deficiency with 184,199 control patients found a significantly increased risk of vitamin B12 deficiency in patients who had taken proton pump inhibitors (odds ratio = 1.65) or histamine H2 blockers (odds ratio = 1.25) for at least two years.9 In light of these findings, long-term use of these medications should be periodically reassessed, particularly in patients with other risk factors for vitamin B12 deficiency.8 , 9

All Data Silver Price History in US Dollars per Ounce

On this page you can explore silver’s price history. The main chart can provide over four decades worth of silver price history. In addition, the interactive charts can be used to examine historical silver prices by the ounce or kilo and in numerous currencies besides dollars.

Although past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results, looking at a market’s price history can potentially provide useful information. For example, looking at a silver price chart going back several months, if prices keep making higher highs and lower lows, then an uptrend may be present and prices could potentially continue higher.

In another example, looking at historical silver price data can also potentially help investors identify areas of support that could be solid buying opportunities. If silver has dipped down to $15 per ounce on numerous occasions but not gone lower, then buying interest may be strong at that level and it could potentially represent a good value for long-term buyers.

Four Decades of Performance

Using the main interactive chart below, you can easily view four decades worth of silver price history. Going back to the mid 1970s, silver was valued at less than $10 per ounce. The white metal began to rise in the late 70s, however, and by 1980 was valued at over $36 per ounce. The market saw prices come back down following the parabolic rise, and silver once again found itself trading under the $10 per ounce level by the late 1980s. Silver maintained a trading range under $10 for years to come, and prices would not climb above $10 per ounce until 2006.

2008 saw the price of silver basically double to about $20 per ounce. This may potentially have been due to the breaking financial crises of 2008/2009 that saw the global banking system nearly collapse. Silver prices once again came back down sharply to around the $10 per ounce level. This dip was bought aggressively, and silver began a historical climb in price that saw the market move nearly to $50 per ounce in 2011. This rapid and significant ascent in the price of silver could potentially have been fueled by significant risk aversion and concerns over the possible effects of massive quantitative easing measures to prop up the economy.

The silver market did not maintain trade near the $50 mark, however, and the white metal proceeded to trend lower over a few years until it found a possible bottom in 2016 for less than $14 per ounce.

Since that time, silver has recovered some ground and has essentially been range bound from about $16 per ounce to $20 per ounce.

A Very Long History

Silver, like gold, has been considered a reliable store of wealth and value for centuries. The metal has been used as a medium of exchange in many societies, and carries the same reputation for reliability to this day.

One of the major attractions to silver is its lack of counterparty risk and its inherent value. Unlike a fiat, or paper currency, silver cannot be printed at will. Fiat currencies have historically lost value over time, and hard assets like silver may potentially hold their value in spite of declining paper money values.

This can potentially make silver especially attractive during periods of rising inflation. During such periods, the overall cost of goods and services rises, and the purchasing power of paper currency may contract. Silver, and other hard assets, may potentially hold their value better or even possibly rise in value as price pressures climb.

Silver, unlike other times in its history, may potentially benefit from several key factors including an ongoing rise in industrial demand as well as central bank monetary policies and geopolitics. In the last decade, global central banks have fought off a slowing economy using ultra-low rates and massive QE. Some would argue that these tools have been successful, while others may differ in their opinion. The ability of central bank’s however, to print massive amounts of currency could potentially weigh on paper currencies in the decades to come, making silver and other hard assets potentially more attractive to long-term investors.

Silver has stood the test of time as a reliable store of wealth and value, and the white metal is likely to continue to be sought after for its price appreciation potential and its potential to provide a meaningful hedge against numerous economic and geopolitical issues.

Solicited and Unsolicited Advice – June 7, 2021 Cambridge City Council meeting

Solicited and Unsolicited Advice – June 7, 2021 Cambridge City Council meeting

There are a number of interesting items on this week’s agenda – especially the legal analysis of City Solicitor Nancy Glowa on a number of topics.

Manager’s Agenda #1. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to an update on the COVID-19 vaccination rollout.
Placed on File 9-0

Manager’s Agenda #2. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to Awaiting Report Item Number 21-39, regarding the status of the Gold Star Mothers Pool opening plans for the June through September summer season of 2021.

Manager’s Agenda #11. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to Awaiting Report Item Number 21-23, regarding a report on permanently extending remote participation in City Council and board and commission meetings.
Placed on File 9-0

I’m really looking forward to the day when Covid updates are relegated to history rather than daily updates. I’m also eagerly looking forward to the day when City Hall, the City Hall Annex, the libraries, and all other City buildings are fully reopened. The justification for keeping them closed is rapidly fading, and when the Governor’s emergency declaration expires on June 15 (or another date if the state legislature approves an extension) there will be no legal basis for denying public access.

As for the matter of the continuation of remote access to public meetings, please read the opinion of the City Solicitor in Mgr’s Agenda #11. In my opinion, we should return forthwith to in-person meetings with the option of remote access for Cambridge residents and invited guests. Elected officials and City staff should no longer be "phoning it in" unless they are physically unable to attend in person.

Manager’s Agenda #4. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to a summary of a Planning Board Meeting on the 2020 Town-Gown Reports and Presentations.

Order #6. That City Manager be and is hereby requested work with the Law Department to provide an analysis of what impact the recently enacted state Housing Choices law has on the Missing Middle Housing Zoning petition. Councillor Sobrinho-Wheeler, Councillor Simmons, Vice Mayor Mallon
Refer to Petition 9-0

I stand by my well-considered opinion that this is a terrible petition that has only grown worse as amendments to the proposal have been introduced in order to garner political support. At this point its passage has more to do with the fealty of some elected officials to the “A Better Cambridge” group than in doing what is best for the city and its residents. There is certainly a reasonable case to be made for allowing multi-family housing to be built in all residential zones and relaxing some parking requirements (especially near transit), but that is not what this zoning proposal is primarily about. It also has nothing to do with addressing any historical remnants having to do with race – in spite of the purposefully misleading rhetoric of the proponents. This is a proposal for dramatically increasing residential density – and not just in areas that currently have lower densities.

Many of us feel that Cambridge is already a relatively dense city – in fact, one of the most dense in the country – and that this proposal has more to do with creating development opportunities than it has to do with either housing affordability or good urban planning. There is also an element of hubris implicit in this petition, i.e. the notion that Cambridge can unilaterally address housing supply issues that properly must be addressed at a regional level and with modifications to the regional transportation system. There are opportunities for transit-oriented residential development that can and should be considered, but that is not part of this proposal. Perhaps the most telling comment was stated by one of the letter-writing proponents on a personal web page, “I am creating a better strategy for investments. I own multiple units in upstate NY, Rhode Island and Ohio. I currently reside in Massachusetts and am trying to find a few deals here.” Enough said.

It is interesting that Councillors Sobrinho-Wheeler, Simmons, and Mallon are so concerned about how many votes will be minimally required to ram this travesty through. Perhaps the time has come to consider how many votes may be needed to elect or replace some councillors this November.

Manager’s Agenda #8. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to Awaiting Report Item Number 21-2, regarding the possibility of implementing a Sheltered Market Program, and Awaiting Report Item Number 21-4, regarding conducting a Spending Disparity Study on City Purchasing.
Placed on File 9-0

This is a very interesting legal analysis in spite of the somewhat cryptic "Sheltered Market Program." At issue is the degree to which City purchasing may give advantages to "historically disadvantaged groups" without running afoul of current laws and judicial decisions. It’s not always clear where "doing the right thing" ends and where political patronage begins. The City Solicitor recommends “that the City, in order to determine whether a sheltered market program under G.L. c. 30B, § 18 can be implemented in Cambridge, first conduct a disparity study to review and analyze whether there are present effects of past discrimination for which such a program would be intended to address. If it is determined that a basis exists for the City to implement a sheltered market program following a disparity study, the next step to implement such a program would be for the City to authorize the Purchasing Agent to establish such a program by: (1) a vote of a majority of the City Council and (2) the approval of the City Manager.”

Manager’s Agenda #9. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to a request for support for the City of Cambridge to join in the formation of a Boston Cambridge Tourism Destination Marketing District.
Placed on File Order Adopted 7-0-0-2 (JSW,QZ – PRESENT)

Manager’s Agenda #10. A communication transmitted from Louis A. DePasquale, City Manager, relative to a response regarding the City Council having its own budget for outside legal research.

The saga continues. I sometimes get the impression that the “bold, progressive change” councillors will simply never accept the notion that whatever they want to do still has to conform to existing laws, and that any opinion to the contrary is met with open hostility. The City’s Law Department has created a mechanism through which most or all of their needs can be met, but perhaps that’s not the real point. The combination of calls for charter change in conjunction with pursuits such as this is really about gathering more power and authority to the local legislative body. In my opinion, this is a wrongheaded quest – and the fact that this is taking place behind the veil of Covid-related limitations to transparency makes it all the worse.

Charter Right #1. Cambridge HEART Proposal. [Charter Right exercised by Councillor Zondervan In Council May 25, 2021]
Approved 8-0-0-1 (Toomey – PRESENT)

Communications #9. A communication was received from Judith Nathans, regarding H.E.A.R.T Proposal and Public Safety Task Force Recommendations.
Placed on File 9-0

The bottom line is that whether ideas and recommendations come from a City-appointed Task Force or as suggestions from a small group of activists, any implementation will still lie with the Police Commissioner and the City Manager – presumably guided by need and best practices and informed by some of the programs that have been successful elsewhere. There is simply no value in casting this matter in terms of a political quest to “Defund the Police” or the absurd notion of “Abolish the Police” either in whole or in specific locations in Cambridge. There is also no value in casting this as a choice between “H.E.A.R.T. proposal vs. Task Force Recommendations.” If there are good ideas that make sense in the context of Cambridge, I would rather put my trust in those who understand public safety and who have proven themselves to be open to creative solutions, e.g. Police Commissioner Branville Bard.

Communications & Reports #3. A communication was received from Councillor Zondervan, transmitting information on the FY22 police budget.

In most years the Budget Adoption and approval of Loan Orders for major capital projects tends to be rather pro forma with most councillors lavishing praise on all those involved (often well-deserved) and some councillors choosing to take a stand either on principal or simply to gain some political advantage. On the School Department budget, I have to side with Councillor Nolan, in particular, who may have seemed contrarian but was simply pointing out that we often don’t maintain very high standards for our schools and we achieve even less. Expressing disapproval may seem cruel in light of all the Covid-related difficulties of the past year, but even that should not let the School Committee or the School Department off the hook. Personally, I have for a long time felt that the focus of Cambridge schools has been far more about social engineering and indoctrination than about academic excellence. It’s particularly grating to listen to School Committee members who have developed their own dialect of "edu-speak" that allows them to "talk around" just about any matter of substance.

As for the rest of the City budget, I fully expect there to be plenty of grandstanding from the “bold progressive change” crowd on either the Police budget or the IT budget (because of the municipal broadband saga) and maybe a few other items before the Bottom Line comes to a final (presumably successful) vote.

Unfinished Business #9. Zoning Amendments related to Retail and Consumer Service Establishments as amended on May 17, 2021 (Ordinance # 2021-3) [Passed to a Second Reading on May 17, 2021 to be Ordained on or after June 7, 2021]

Ordained 9-0

These could be ordained at this meeting, but I would be lying if I told you that I understood much about the proposed changes or the potential intended or unintended consequences.

Order #5. Live Acoustic Entertainment Ordinance. Councillor Sobrinho-Wheeler, Vice Mayor Mallon, Councillor McGovern, Councillor Carlone
Passed to 2nd Reading 9-0

This might be OK, but the fact that percussion is considered acoustic and requires no amplification causes me some concern. Then again, the proposal does suggest that any performances must still conform to existing laws, including the Noise Ordinance. That said, I would be happier if the License Commission still had a role in at least reviewing these things and effecting compromises when appropriate. There is also a level of ambiguity in the proposal when it says “within the perimeter of their business.” Does this include outdoor patios? What about the case of relatively loud acoustic performance in a location abutting a residence – possibly where someone is working from home like so many of us are doing these days?

Order #7. That the City Manager and staff be requested to examine car storage policies and discuss potential updates with the City Council at a meeting of the Transportation Committee. Councillor Sobrinho-Wheeler, Mayor Siddiqui, Councillor Nolan, Councillor Zondervan
Order Adopted 9-0

Regardless of any other merits this proposal may have, let’s at least be aware of the fact that it proposes to eliminate residential and commercial parking minimums citywide and (though it doesn’t explicitly say so) significantly jacking up residential parking permit fees. So if you do choose to own a motor vehicle there will be greater competition for on-street parking and significantly greater expense for the “privilege” of doing so.

Committee Report #2. Neighborhood & Long-Term Planning, Public Facilities, Arts & Celebration Committee – Committee Meeting – May 26, 2021 at 10:00am.
Report Accepted, Placed on File, Order Adopted 9-0

The purpose of the meeting was to consider the reappointment of Conrad Crawford to the Cambridge Redevelopment Authority Board (slam dunk) and to discuss the pilot of street closures in Harvard Square. Street closure discussions in Cambridge are often a witch’s brew of "ban cars" sentiments and creative ideas for improving street life and local retail. The bottom line is that emergency vehicles still need to get through, and it is often the case that when you ban vehicles from one street it becomes just a game of "Whack-A-Mole" when the vehicles simply shift to alternate routes. The Great Exceptions to this are those streets that have been designated (or should be designated) as "woonerfs" – a Dutch term for what is essentially a shared, low volume street. In Cambridge, think Winthrop Street (by Grendel’s Den), Palmer Street (Club Passim), and the yet-to-be made spectacular Blanche Street at the edge of Central Square (which is still just a delivery alley at best). There are some other streets that could be operated as shared streets or ban all but emergency vehicles without creating a cascading vehicular hellscape. Making Palmer Street an interesting street (and not just artsy fartsy) would be a good place to start. Even a hot dog vendor would be a great improvement.

Communications & Reports #1. A communication was received from Mayor Siddiqui, transmitting information about Homelessness Working Group.
Placed on File 9-0

There is no doubt that more is needed in this arena, but these investigations can end up as reports on shelves – and the simple truth is that these are regional problems and when one well-meaning city like Cambridge does things to address these problems it often ends up paradoxically increasing the problems in that city as individuals migrate to where the enhanced services are to be found. For example, when Boston cracks down on Methadone Mile, some of that just relocates to Central Square. – Robert Winters
