“On Wednesday of this week, silver finally managed to get a CLOSE above strong chart resistance at the $30 level. The next day, while it was unable to advance much, it refused to back down below that resistance level and eked out another close above $30. Two consecutive closes above a strong chart resistance level and the bears had no choice but to begin running. Fresh money is now chasing them out as it appears that the hedge funds are beginning to move back into the grey metal after having fallen out of love with it in December of last year.

The technical chart picture is much improved with all momentum indicators now in a bullish mode on the Read more…

Havoc as thunderstorm hits PerthRoss Cox © Enlarge photo

Update, 4.45pm: A fourth person has been struck by lightning, after a severe thunderstorm swept over the city this morning.

The storm ripped through the south metro area this morning, causing havoc with the power supply, bringing down branches and causing minor flooding.

A warning was issued for the Perth metro area as the storm shifted north.

People in areas bound by Lancelin, Northam and Narrogin were told to prepare for damaging winds, heavy rainfall and possible hail.

Multiple thunderstorms are expected to hit Perth this afternoon following intense lightning early this morning.

There were just over 8300 lightning strikes between 12am to 2:30pm within a 600km radius of Perth yesterday, according to local weather-watcher Tom Marsh, who uploads minute-to minute updates at www.tkup.net from his Floreat weather station.

The peak rate was 95 strikes a minute at 7.14am, including strikes between clouds as well as from clouds to ground, he said.

Weather bureau forecaster Nadine Baillard said while the storms were easing off for now, higher temperatures would see them build up again this afternoon.

One person was hit by lightning at 4am on Wyeree Road in Mandurah and was taken to Peel Health Campus and a second person was struck at 4:30am on Brennan Promenade in Baldivis. He was taken to Rockingham Hospital.

A third person was taken to hospital by ambulance after he was struck at about 9am.

The 42-year-old man was working at Hertz in Welshpool when the whole office reported hearing a massive crack from Read more…

Olympic security secrets left on train

A cop lost the file but a commuter found it and handed it to The Sun.

The shocking security blunder could have provided terrorists planning an attack with invaluable data.

A shamed senior cop has been carpeted.

The chief inspector in Scotland Yard’s Territorial Policing branch is said to be “hugely embarrassed” by the potentially serious blunder.

The dossier contained details that would have helped al-Qaeda terrorists mount a devastating attack on the Games in London this summer. “Restricted” files spell out security plans in place at the sites of events and provide minutes of top-level meetings where ways to beat terrorists were discussed.

The dossier contains dates and details of pre-Olympics rehearsals, explains emergency “lock-down” procedures and sets out plans to avoid traffic congestion.

Worryingly, names and mobile phone numbers of constables, sergeants and inspectors are included.

The dossier also reports at length on damning complaints from officers about the Read more…

DANGEROUS CROSSROADS: NATO launches radar in Turkey to target Russia, Iran and Syria

January 20, 2012 Comments off

Turkey joins NATO's missile defense shieldTurkey has recently launched the early warning radar station, a part of NATO’s missile system, which the USA has been building near Russia’s borders. The radar station will be controlled from Germany. The station is located in the town of Malatya, which is 500 kilometers to the south-east of Ankara and some 700 kilometers from the border with Iran. Turkish and US servicemen will serve at the station.

Turkey agreed to deploy the radar station on its territory in September 2011. Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan stated back then that the deployment of the radar in Turkey would be an important step for the whole region.

Data from the station will be transferred to command posts in the United States and to the ships equipped with the AEGIS system (a sea-based missile defense system). NATO officials stated that the radar station was deployed in Turkey in connection with the growing threat for Iran to use small and medium range missiles in the Middle East.

Several local politicians stood up against the deployment of the elements of NATO’s missile defense system in Turkey. They believe that the West would thus get Turkey involved in a possible conflict with Teheran.

Needless to say, Iran was Read more…

How Will The Shocking Decline Of Christianity In America Affect The Future Of This Nation?

January 20, 2012 3 comments

Is Christianity in decline in America?  When you examine the cold, hard numbers it is simply not possible to come to any other conclusion.  Over the past few decades, the percentage of Christians in America has been steadily declining.  This has especially been true among young people.  As you will see later in this article, there has been a mass exodus of teens and young adults out of U.S. churches.  In addition, what “Christianity” means to American Christians today is often far different from what “Christianity” meant to their parents and their grandparents.  Millions upon millions of Christians in the United States simply do not believe many of the fundamental principles of the Christian faith any longer.  Without a doubt, America is becoming a less “Christian” nation.  This has staggering implications for the future of this country.  The United States was founded primarily by Christians that were seeking to escape religious persecution.  For those early settlers, the Christian faith was the very center of their lives, and it deeply affected the laws that they made and the governmental structures that they established.  So what is the future of Read more…
