Light is a particle & Light is a wave

Here is an amazing simplification of the evidence that illustrates that light is a particle and it is also a wave. Something that beckons an explanation beyond the 4 dimensions we are familiar with.

You believe in Astrology?

Well think again on what it is based on. What if the fundamentals of astrology are on shifting sand? Do you think than perhaps astrology is actually just a psychological play on setting expectations, vying off common human worries etc?

Earth’s ‘wobble’ means your zodiac sign may be wrong

By Liz Goodwin

A Minnesota astronomer confirms what many have suspected: Your horoscope is quite possibly wrong.

Earth’s shifts on its axis over the past 3,000 years have changed the 12 zodiac signs. For example, think your sign is Aquarius? You may be a Pisces. (There’s also a 13th sign, Ophiuchus, that’s based on a constellation the ancient Babylonians threw out for symmetry thousands of years ago.)

So who’s to blame for this scam on zodiac devotees?

The ancient Babylonians based the zodiac on which constellation the sun appeared to be in when a person was born. Since then, the moon’s has exerted a gravitation pull on Earth, causing a “wobble” on its axis that has shifted the stars’ alignment by about a month, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports.

“Because of this change in the tilt, the Earth is over here and the sun is in a different constellation than it was 3,000 years ago when this study of the stars began,” astronomer Parke Kunkle told the Twin Cities’ KARE-TV.

The shift isn’t new, Kunkle says — the zodiac world just hasn’t taken the wobble into account.

Here’s your new sign below:

Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16

Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11

Pisces: March 11-April 18

Aries: April 18-May 13

Taurus: May 13-June 21

Gemini: June 21-July 20

Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10

Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16

Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30

Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23

Scorpio: Nov. 23-Nov. 29

Ophiuchus: Nov. 29-Dec. 17

Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20

The changing earth… Movement of Magnatic Poles

Volcanoes erupt, new land is being created and even our magnetic pole is always on the run changing.

Here is an example of how it affects our lives.

Earth’s magnetic pole shifts, screws up runway at Florida airport
By Liz Goodwin

EmailPrint..By Liz Goodwin liz Goodwin – Fri Jan 7, 4:45 pm ET
An airport in Tampa, Florida, has had to temporarily close its runways to keep up with Earth’s magnetic north pole, which is drifting toward Russia at a rate of 40 miles per year.

Fox News reports that the international airport was forced to adjust the signs on its busiest runway Thursday because pilots depend on the magnetic fields to navigate. The runway will be closed until Jan. 13, and will re-open with new taxiway signs that indicate its new location on aviation charts, the Tampa Bay Tribune reports.

Paul Takemoto, a spokesman for the FAA, says the Earth’s magnetic fields are constantly in flux — but rarely so much so that runway signage needs to be changed. “You want to be absolutely precise in your compass heading,” he told Fox. “To make sure the precision is there that we need, you have to make these changes.”

“The Earth’s poles are changing constantly, and when they change more than three degrees, that can affect runway numbering,” FAA spokesperson Kathleen Bergen told Fox News. It’s unclear whether any other airports will have to adjust their runways.

Earth’s magnetic field, which still flummoxes those who study it, “is thought to be generated deep inside the planet,” LiveScience writer Jeanna Bryner explains. “An inner core of solid iron is surrounded by an outer core of molten iron. They rotate at different rates, and the interaction between the regions creates what scientists call a ‘hydromagnetic dynamo.’ It’s something like an electric motor, and it generates a magnetic field akin to a giant bar magnet.”

Sometimes, the poles completely flip — and presumably when that happens, many bigger changes are afoot than modest tweaks to airport signs. The last time the planet experienced a polarity flip was 780,000 years ago.
