Beauty and The Briefcase (Full Movie) – Hilary Duff

Never do this in the work place!!!!

We hate to admit it, because we personally feel that clothes shouldn’t matter.In a perfect world, a person would be judged at their workplace based solely on the caliber of their work. Unfortunately, that’s not how the world works.

How you choose to dress each morning reflects how you feel about your job – that you take your position seriously, that you are ready to work and that you pay attention to detail and know what you expect to encounter that day. You wouldn’t go to a construction site in your favorite four-inch stilettos, right? Of course not, you’d go in a hard hat, because it’s appropriate for the situation. Appearances matter!

We’ve all been there, though. The days you wake up feeling sick, but still have to make it into the office, so you throw on any old thing that’s (kind of) clean. The office where you never see anyone but your hated boss and your frumpy coworkers. The jobs you work from home in your pajamas and no makeup.

Regardless of the excuses, there are some things that professionals should just never wear. Ever.

We’ll show you what these things are, why they’re a terrible wardrobe choice and if you’re guilty of having one in your closet – or (gasp!) in your daily rotation – we’ll give you a much better alternative

Recently, the good people at revealed their list of the ìTop Ten Things Men Shouldnít Do In Public,î which included definite no-noís like picking their noses and peeing conspicuously, and debatable no-noís like crying (Come on, what if his dog just died? What if he just watched The Notebook for the first time?). Interestingly, they said proposing to your girlfriend on a subway was a ìboldî public moveósomething that really ought to top the list of forbidden public acts, if you ask me (I mean seriously, a subway? Is there a danker, drearier place on Earth to ask a woman to spend the rest of your life with you?).

Anyway, thereís no reason men should have all the fun, so in the interest of equality weíve got a list of our own. After the jump, the ìTop Ten Things Women Shouldnít Do In Public.î

1. Apply Full Make-Up

Okay, look. Refreshing your lip gloss after a meal is one thing, but putting your whole face on while riding the bus or subway (where no one should do any proposing!) is so not cool. Set your alarm ten minutes earlier, and do your makeup before you leave your apartment. A woman has to retain a little mystique, you know.

2. Adjust Your Skimpy Underwear

If itís so uncomfortable in the first place that you have to go digging in places you really shouldnít, maybe itís time to switch to underwear with a little more coverage, hmm?

3. Sit Cross-Legged While Wearing a Skirt

Just donít.

4. Show Off Your Midriff

I donít care if youíve got washboard abs, if you could bounce a quarter of your belly, or if youíre only sixteen. Unless youíre on the beach, at the pool, or working for tips, no one, I mean no one, should be running around with an exposed midriff. Itís just not classy.

5. Talk on Your Phone in a Public Bathroom or Dressing Room

Bathrooms and dressing rooms are sort of like Vegas. What happens in them should stay in them, and you with your phone broadcasting every sound to God knows who and subjecting the rest of us to some inane conversation that can absolutely wait until you no longer have your pants around the ankles is not honoring that sacred code.

6. Ask Your Partner or Spouse If They Love You

Itís uncomfortable for them; itís uncomfortable for us. Save your strange pillow talk for when youíre horizontal.

7. Tweeze Errant Hairs or Pop a Pimple

While I understand the temptation of removing any evidence that youíre less than perfect, doing so in public not only underscores your imperfections, it makes you look, well, kinda nasty.

8. Criticize Your Partner or Spouse

Sure, they may deserve itóespecially if theyíre treating a waitress like crap or ogling other people, but thereís a time and a place for everything, and in public when everyone can hear your private conversation is not it.

9. Adjust the Girls

Weíve all been there before: a breast slips below your underwire or heads too closely to your armpit, but until you find a private spot, resist the urge to reach into your bra and readjust.

10. Pee All Over the Toilet Seat

If you do happen to have bad aim, remember the old adage: If you sprinkle when you tinkle, please be neat and wipe the seat!

Are you curious to know what the top things you should never do on a first date are? There are many things you can do to ruin your chances with a man on a first date. Here is some very good dating advice for girls that you should read and follow through with.

First, you already know that the exes are going to come up in the conversation. You should never put down your past lovers and you really should never reveal what the reasons were that you broke up. You should simply just say that it didn’t work out. This is because if you let a guy know that you broke up with a man for a specific reason, then if he is one that does that same thing he will do it and just hide if from you, if possible.

Second, you should never talk about the big three on the first date. This would include sex, politics, and religion. This is just dangerous and if you talk about any of these three subjects you might learn things you don’t want to know yet and don’t need to know yet. Plus they are very serious and will not lighten the mood on a first date.

Third, do not pay and then see the guy again. It is fine if you buy your own coffee or something like that, but do not pay for the guys drinks or dinner or whatever, then go and see him again. If he is not willing to pay, especially if he asked you out, then he is not worth your time. Get rid of him in a hurry and if you leave him stuck with his own tab when you leave, then maybe the embarrassment will be enough to make sure he does not do it to the next girl.

Last, this is probably the most important part of the dating advice for girls, you need to be 100% honest. This does not mean you tell him your life story, but if he asks a direct question do not beat around the bush or lie. Make sure you tell the truth because if you lie and you become serious with him he is going to find out sooner or later anyway. Then, the chances of him trusting you will be much less and you cannot have a relationship without trust.

Rod Serling – American Masters – PBS – Documentary “WHOM”?   Leave a comment


Known primarily for his role as the host of television’s THE TWILIGHT ZONE, Rod Serling had one of the most exceptional and varied careers in television. As a writer, a producer, and for many years a teacher, Serling challenged the medium of television to reach for loftier artistic goals. The winner of more Emmy Awards for dramatic writing than anyone in history, Serling expressed a deep social conscience in nearly everything he did.

Born in Syracuse, New York in 1924, Rod Serling grew up in the small upstate city of Binghamton. The son of a butcher, he joined the army after graduating from high school in 1942. His experiences of the working-class life of New York, and the horrors of World War II enlivened in him a profound concern for a moral society. After returning from the service, Serling enrolled as a physical education student at Antioch College, but before long realized that he was destined for more creative endeavors.

Changing his major to English literature and drama, Serling began to try his hand at writing. As a senior, after marrying his college sweetheart, Carolyn Kramer, he won an award for a television script he had written. Encouraged by the award, Serling started writing for radio and television. Beginning in Cincinnati, he soon found a home for his unique style of realistic psychological dramas at CBS. By the early 1950s he was writing full-time and had moved his family closer to Manhattan.

Serling had his first big break with a television drama for NBC, called PATTERNS. Dealing with the fast-paced lives and ruthless people within the business world, PATTERNS was so popular it became the first television show to ever be broadcast a second time due to popularity. Throughout the 1950s he continued to write probing investigative dramas about serious issues. He was often hounded by the conservative censors for his uncompromising attention to issues such as lynching, union organizing, and racism. Television dramas including REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT and A TOWN HAS TURNED TO DUST, are still considered some of the best writing ever done for television.

Fed up with the difficulties of writing about serious issues on the conservative networks, Serling turned to science fiction and fantasy. Through an ingenious mixture of morality fable and fantasy writing, he was able to circumvent the timidity and conservatism of the television networks and sponsors. Self-producing a series of vignettes that placed average people in extraordinary situations, Serling could investigate the moral and political questions of his time. He found that he could address controversial subjects if they were cloaked in a veil of fantasy, saying “I found that it was all right to have Martians saying things Democrats and Republicans could never say.”

The series was called THE TWILIGHT ZONE and was incredibly popular, winning Serling three Emmy Awards. As the host and narrator of the show, he became a household name and his voice seemed always a creepy reminder of a world beyond our control. The show lasted for five seasons, and during that time Serling wrote more than half of the one hundred and fifty-one episodes. But for Serling, television was an inherently problematic medium—requiring the concessions of commercials and time restrictions.

For much of the 1960s and into the 1970s Serling turned to the big screen, writing films that included a remake of REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT (1962), THE YELLOW CANARY (1963), and ASSAULT ON A QUEEN (1966). His most famous, however, was the classic PLANET OF THE APES (1968), co-written with Michael Wilson. Similar to his early work on THE TWILIGHT ZONE, THE PLANET OF THE APES was a moralistic tale of contemporary life told through a science-fiction fantasy in which Apes have taken over the world. Dealing with question of how we act as a society and how we view ourselves as moral beings, PLANET OF THE APES was a culmination of Serling’s career-long interests as a writer.

By the early 1970s, he found a job teaching in Ithaca, New York. Continuing to write for television, he sought to impart a sense of moral responsibility and artistic integrity to the new generation of television writers. In June of 1975, he died of a heart attack. Today, more than twenty-five years after his death, Serling’s legacy continues to grow. His television and cinematic works have reached cult status—enlivening a new interest in one of the great early writers of American television.

Poignant last words, no standards to measure such a gem of a person… Humanity was his business . He did something that had worldly implications… Simple and to the point.

He was a diminutive man with too big of a heart and soul to be so rich and famous. You get the feeling that he would have given it all up to be an anonymous fixer of the world’s problems. His ticker gave out when his time was past. But his TZ episodes are timeless. And somewhere in the place we go when we leave this world, he will live forever.

We only hate the rampant stupidity we see from the US. Not that Canada doesn’t have an proportional amount of dummies up here. Rod Serling saw the same thing which is why he felt compelled to write about it; war, racism, sexism, inequality, injustice etc…. Serling’s understanding of the human condition is what made The Twilight Zone the greatest TV show of all time

Caveat lector: grumpy older guy moment ahead. Want to know what I think is wrong with the youth of today? None of them grew up with The Twilight Zone. They don’t even understand the moral and philosophical depths of the plots. That world is lost to them. It doesn’t mean anything to them. Theirs is a world of violence and gore, whether on film or in their music; not the world of imagination and humanism. I thank the stars above that I grew up when I did. Thanks for posting this! It made my day!

Yes, he just used the premise of an other-worldly “twilight zone” to give himself a venue in which to write about human nature and human conflict–examine it–when network executives wouldn’t accept scripts Serling submitted set in a real-world present-day setting.

I put a collection of some of the best of his original series that I could find on YT and put them on a playlist at my YT site. If you find these interesting, you can order the whole original series from CBC on DVD from their website. They own the right to the “Twilight Zone”.

Twilight Zone !!!!!!!hahahahahahahah   Leave a comment


N Gallery is an American anthology series that aired on NBC from 1970 to 1973, featuring stories of horror and the macabre. Rod Serling, who had gained fame from an earlier series, The Twilight Zone, served both as the on-air host of Night Gallery and as a major contributor of scripts, although he did not have the same control of content and tone as he had on The Twilight Zone. The series was introduced with a pilot TV movie that aired on November 8, 1969, and featured the directorial debut of Steven Spielberg, as well as one of the last acting performances by Joan Crawford. Allegedly, Bette Davis was set to star in the segment, but she felt her work was not important to a young director. However there is nothing in the files at Universal to suggest anyone other than Crawford was slated for the role.Best Bit – Rod Serling turning to the camera and saying, “Good-Evening”, with a smile. You can see his sense of humour right there. brilliant writer. great sense of humour. There’s to be a new film made about his life coming out next year. Hope they do a good job of it. He deserves it.

Burgess Meredith was one of those actors who made you forget you were watching an actor. You believe he is the person he was portraying. Check out any 3 of his film roles or TV appearances if you don’t already know what I mean. Try an episode of the 1960’s Batman TV series in which he played the Penguin, the 1939 version of “Of Mice & Men” & any of the Stallone “Rocky” films. Have a good time.

Can I seriously watching one documentary where Amish teens don’t get into drugs, drinking, sex and partying all because they think that’s all American or Brit teens do? And with that, can I watch one where they go to a city and they aren’t told that it’s all rape murder and drugs? Like seriously!

The Amish is a “backward” culture when it comes to marriage. They are confined as one group, they dont socialize with other people outside their community, their bloodlines are the same, thus, there is a great risk of producing mutant offspring.

The Amish (play /ˈɑːmɪʃ/ AH-mish; Pennsylvania Dutch: Amisch, German: Amische), sometimes referred to as Amish Mennonites, are a group of traditionalist Christian church fellowships that form a subgroup of the Mennonite churches. The Amish are known for simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt many conveniences of modern technology. The history of the Amish church began with a schism in Switzerland within a group of Swiss and Alsatian Anabaptists in 1693 led by Jakob Ammann.[2] Those who followed Ammann became known as Amish.[3]

In the early 18th century, many Amish and Mennonites emigrated to Pennsylvania for a variety of reasons. Today, the most traditional descendants of the Amish continue to speak Pennsylvania German, also known as Pennsylvania Dutch. However, a dialect of Swiss German predominates in some Old Order Amish communities, especially in the American state of Indiana.[4] As of 2000, over 165,000 Old Order Amish live in the United States and approximately 1500 live in Canada.[5] A 2008 study suggested their numbers have increased to 227,000,[6] and in 2010 a study suggested their population had grown by 10% in the past two years to 249,000, with increasing movement to the West.[1]

Amish church membership begins with baptism, usually between the ages of 16 and 25. It is a requirement for marriage, and once a person has affiliated with the church, he or she may marry only within the faith. Church districts average between 20 and 40 families, and worship services are held every other Sunday in a member’s home. The district is led by a bishop and several ministers and deacons.[7] The rules of the church, the Ordnung, must be observed by every member. These rules cover most aspects of day-to-day living, and include prohibitions or limitations on the use of power-line electricity, telephones, and automobiles, as well as regulations on clothing. Many Amish church members may not buy insurance or accept government assistance such as Social Security. As Anabaptists, Amish church members practice nonresistance and will not perform any type of military service.

Members who do not conform to these expectations and who cannot be convinced to repent are excommunicated. In addition to excommunication, members may be shunned,[8] a practice that limits social contacts to shame the wayward member into returning to the church. Almost 90% of Amish teenagers choose to be baptized and join the church.[8] During adolescence rumspringa (“running around”) in some communities, nonconforming behavior that would result in the shunning of an adult who had made the permanent commitment of baptism, may meet with a degree of forbearance.[9] Amish church groups seek to maintain a degree of separation from the non-Amish (English) world. There is generally a heavy emphasis on church and family relationships. They typically operate their own one-room schools and discontinue formal education at grade eight (age 13/14).[8] They value rural life, manual labor and humility.

The Amish Mennonite movement descends from the 16th century fellowship known as the Swiss Brethren.[10] The Swiss Brethren were Anabaptists, and are often viewed as having been a part of the Radical Reformation. “Anabaptist” means “one who baptizes again” – a reference to those who had been baptized as infants, but later adopted a belief in “believer’s baptism”, and then let themselves again be baptized as adults. These Swiss Brethren trace their origins to Felix Manz (ca. 1498–1527) and Conrad Grebel (ca. 1498–1526), who had broken from reformer Huldrych Zwingli.[11]

The Amish movement takes its name from Jakob Ammann (c. 1656–1730), a Swiss Mennonite leader. Ammann believed Mennonites, the peaceful Anabaptists of the Low Countries and Germany, were drifting away from the teachings of Menno Simons and the 1632 Mennonite Dordrecht Confession of Faith. Ammann favored stronger church discipline, including a more rigid application of shunning, the social exclusion of excommunicated members. Swiss Anabaptists, who were scattered by persecution throughout the Alsace and the Electorate of the Palatinate, never practiced strict shunning as had some lowland Anabaptists.[citation needed] Ammann insisted upon this practice, even to the point of expecting spouses to refuse to eat with each other, until the banned spouse repented.[12] This type of strict literalism, on this issue, as well as others, brought about a division among the Mennonites of Southern Germany, the Alsace and Switzerland in 1693, and led to withdrawal of those who sided with Ammann.

Swiss Anabaptism developed, from this point, in two parallel streams. Those following Ammann became known as Amish or Amish Mennonite. The others eventually formed the basis of the Swiss Mennonite Conference. Because of this common heritage, Amish and Mennonites retain many similarities. Those who leave the Amish fold tend to join various congregations of Conservative Mennonites.[13][14]

Amish Mennonites began migrating to Pennsylvania in the 18th century as part of a larger migration from the Palatinate and neighboring areas. This migration was a reaction to religious wars, poverty, and religious persecution on the Continent.[citation needed] The first Amish immigrants went to Berks County, Pennsylvania, but later moved, motivated by land issues and by security concerns tied to the French and Indian War.[citation needed] Many eventually settled in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Other groups later settled in, or spread to Alabama, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Maryland, Tennessee, Wisconsin, Maine, and Ontario, Canada.

The Amish congregations remaining in Europe slowly merged with the Mennonites. The last Amish congregation to merge was the Ixheim Amish congregation, which merged with the neighboring Mennonite Church in 1937. Some Mennonite congregations, including most in Alsace, are descended directly from former Amish congregations.[15][page needed]

Most Amish communities that were established in North America did not ultimately retain their Amish identity. The original major split that resulted in the loss of identity occurred in the 1860s. During that decade Dienerversammlungen (ministerial conferences) were held in Wayne County, Ohio, concerning how the Amish should deal with the pressures of modern society. The meetings themselves were a progressive idea; for bishops to assemble to discuss uniformity was an unprecedented notion in the Amish church.[citation needed] By the first several meetings, the more traditionally minded bishops agreed to boycott the conferences. The more progressive members, comprising approximately two thirds of the group, retained the name Amish Mennonite. Many of these eventually united with the Mennonite Church, and other Mennonite denominations, especially in the early 20th century. The more traditionally minded groups became known as the Old Order Amish.[16]

Two key concepts for understanding Amish practices are their rejection of Hochmut (pride, arrogance, haughtiness) and the high value they place on Demut (humility) and Gelassenheit (calmness, composure, placidity), often translated as “submission” or “letting-be”. Gelassenheit is perhaps better understood as a reluctance to be forward, to be self-promoting, or to assert oneself. The Amish’s willingness to submit to the “Will of Jesus”, expressed through group norms, is at odds with the individualism so central to the wider American culture. The Amish anti-individualist orientation is the motive for rejecting labor-saving technologies that might make one less dependent on community. Modern innovations like electricity might spark a competition for status goods, or photographs might cultivate personal vanity.

Way of life

Main article: Amish way of life

Amish lifestyle is dictated by the Ordnung[8] (German, meaning: order), which differs slightly from community to community, and, within a community, from district to district. What is acceptable in one community may not be acceptable in another. No summary of Amish lifestyle and culture can be totally adequate, because there are few generalities that are true for all Amish. Groups may separate over matters such as the width of a hat-brim, the color of buggies, or other issues.[citation needed]

Bearing children, raising them, and socializing with neighbors and relatives are the greatest functions of the Amish family. All Amish believe large families are a blessing from God.


Main article: Pennsylvania German language

The Amish speak in Pennsylvania Dutch and refer to non-Amish as “English”.[8] According to one scholar, “today, almost all Amish are functionally bilingual in Pennsylvania Dutch and English; however, domains of usage are sharply separated. Pennsylvania Dutch dominates in most in-group settings, such as the dinner table and preaching in church services. In contrast, English is used for most reading and writing. English is also the medium of instruction in schools and is used in business transactions and often, out of politeness, in situations involving interactions with non-Amish. Finally, the Amish read prayers and sing in Standard German, or High German (Hoch Deitsch) at church services. The distinctive use of three different languages serves as a powerful conveyor of Amish identity.”[17] Although “the English language is being used in more and more situations,” Pennsylvania Dutch is “one of a handful of minority languages in the United States that is neither endangered nor supported by continual arrivals of immigrants.”[18]

Because members usually get baptized no earlier than 18 and children are not counted in local congregation numbers, it is difficult to put an exact figure on the number of Amish. Rough estimates from various studies have placed their numbers at 125,000 in 1992; 166,000 in 2000; and 221,000 in 2008.[19] Thus, from 1992 to 2008, population growth among the Amish in North America was 84% (3.6% per year). During that time they established 184 new settlements and moved into six new states.[20] In 2000, approximately 165,620





National Forest Service lands as a percentage ...

National Forest Service lands as a percentage of total area by state. Data from (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The United States Forest Service prepares a report every 10 years on tree planting, timber stand improvement, and nursery production activities across all ownerships of forest land in the United States. I want to review highlights published in their 2000 summary.

Question: How many acres of trees are planted annually in the United States?

Answer: Tree planting on all ownerships total approximately two and a half million acres annually. This annual planting roughly equals the size of the State of Connecticut. Compare this annual planting to 2.3 million acres of trees planted under the ten year Civilian Conservation Corps tree planting program (mid-1930’s to mid-1940’s) and to 2.2 million acres under the entire Soil Bank Program (1956 to 1961).

Question: How many trees are grown in U.S. nurseries each year?

Answer: Approximately one and a half billion trees are produced and shipped by forest tree nurseries annually. Forest product nurseries produced 55% of the tree seedlings, private nurseries produced 22%, state nurseries produced 21%, and federal nurseries produced 2% during the 1990s.

Question: When were trees first planted?

Answer: The first records of tree planting in the United States were collected in 1930 and showed an annual planting of 138,970 acres. The most acreage planted in any single year came in 1988 when nearly 3.4 million acres were planted. This was at the peak of the federal Conservation Reserve Program.

Question: Who plants the most acreage in trees each year?

Answer: Forest industry plants 45%, non-industrial private owners plant 42%, the National Forest System plants 6%, other government and industries plant 7%.

Question: What state plants the most trees?

Answer: Alabama reported the largest annual tree planting of any state in the nation with a record of nearly one half million acres in a single year. The top five planting states were Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, and South Carolina. Massachusetts reported the least with only 7,000 acres planted.

Question: What state produces the most nursery seedlings?

Answer: Georgia’s tree nurseries produced over 250 million trees each year through the 1990s and grew the most seedlings. Nearly 79% of all tree production in the United States occurs in the South. Western nurseries produce 17% and Northern nurseries produce 4% of total U.S. tree production.


Greenhouse Gases Hit Record High in 2011? HOW?   Leave a comment

Come to the Philippines to learn “ENGLISH”

with Teacher “ALVIN”




The concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere hit a record high in 2011, the United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO) reported Tuesday (Nov. 20).

Chief among these heat-trapping gases is carbon dioxide (CO2), the biggest culprit behind global warming. Carbon dioxide levels reached about 390.9 parts per million last year, which is 140 percent of the pre-industrial level of 280 parts per million and nearly 2 parts per million higher than the 2010 carbon dioxide level, according to the WMO report.

The international body estimates that about 413 billion tons (375 billion metric tons) of carbon have been released into the atmosphere since 1750, primarily from fossil fuel combustion. About half of this atmospheric carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere, and much of it will linger for centuries, causing the planet to warm further, WMO Secretary-General Michel Jarraud warned.

Historically, the Earth’s oceans and forests have helped balance the atmosphere’s carbon equation by sucking up large amounts of the greenhouse gas. But Jarraud said natural carbon sinks might not be able to mitigate the problem as effectively in the future.

“Until now, carbon sinks have absorbed nearly half of the carbon dioxide humans emitted in the atmosphere, but this will not necessarily continue in the future,” Jarraud said in a statement. “We have already seen that the oceans are becoming more acidic as a result of the carbon dioxide uptake, with potential repercussions for the underwater food chain and coral reefs. There are many additional interactions between greenhouse gases, Earth’s biosphere and oceans, and we need to boost our monitoring capability and scientific knowledge in order to better understand these.”

Greenhouse cases trap heat within the Earth’s atmosphere and create a warming effect on the climate known as radiative forcing. From 1990 to 2011, radiative forcing by greenhouse gases shot up 30 percent, with carbon dioxide blamed for about 80 percent of this increase, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Besides carbon dioxide, methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) are also implicated in the greenhouse effect. In 2011, the level of methane in the atmosphere reached a new high of about 1,813 parts per billion, or 259 percent of the pre-industrial level, due to increased emissions from human activities, such as cattle breeding, rice farming and fossil fuel use. The atmospheric concentration of nitrous oxide, meanwhile, hit about 324.2 parts per billion last year, or 120 percent of the pre-industrial level and 1 part per billion above the 2010 level.

NOT ME!!!!

geyser (US /ˈɡzər/UK /ˈɡzə/[1]) is a spring characterized by intermittent discharge of water ejected turbulently and accompanied by a vapour phase (steam). The word geyser comes from Geysir, the name of an erupting spring at Haukadalur,Iceland; that name, in turn, comes from the Icelandic verb geysa, “to gush”, the verb itself from Old Norse.

The formation of geysers is due to particular hydrogeological conditions, which exist in only a few places on Earth, so they are a fairly rare phenomenon. Generally all geyser field sites are located near active volcanic areas, and the geyser effect is due to the proximity of magma. Generally, surface water works its way down to an average depth of around 2,000 metres (6,600 ft) where it contacts hot rocks. The resultant boiling of the pressurized water results in the geyser effect of hot water and steam spraying out of the geyser’s surface vent (a hydrothermal explosion).

About a thousand known geysers exist worldwide, roughly half of which are inYellowstone National ParkWyomingUnited States. A geyser’s eruptive activity may change or cease due to ongoing mineral deposition within the geyser plumbing, exchange of functions with nearby hot springsearthquake influences, and human intervention.[2]

Jet-like eruptions, often referred to as geysers, have been observed on several of themoons of the outer solar system. Due to the low ambient pressures, these eruptions consist of vapor without liquid; they are made more easily visible by particles of dust and ice carried aloft by the gas. Water vapor jets have been observed near the south pole of Saturn‘s moon Enceladus, while nitrogen eruptions have been observed onNeptune‘s moon Triton. There are also signs of carbon dioxide eruptions from the southern polar ice cap of Mars. In the latter two cases, instead of being driven by geothermal energy, the eruptions seem to rely on solar heating via a solid-stategreenhouse effect.


What HAARP Is..?WHEN DO WE CHANGE THIS?   Leave a comment

You ever think that since these cats wrote the bible they are just playing out the events described therein I mean the church and state have always been in bed together and it seems that if you believe that HAARP is responsible for these events and I do, that they would use peoples beliefs to their advantage after all your not seeing the big picture if your only looking at half of it and you cant fight what you cant see. Just a thought.

I’m involved in the eco business. Learning about HAARP is fundamental in the study of meteorology. Any science involving the atmosphere has heard of this. It’s discussed integrally with intentional weather modification education. I haven’t watched the vid yet, but I know it can change the polarization of ions in the ionosphere (part of the magnetic field, visible during the auroras). Let’s see what the vid has to say…

yes they own the weather.they admit it.the program is called own the weather.the patents for it are easily found on the internet.They can stop a hurricane dead in its tracksInstead they just used it to pump up a hurricane and steer it into the east coast to influence an election.Brought to u by your freindly neighborhood CIA.(criminally insane anarchists)I pray for people to awaken and OPPOSE THE DECIEVERS!
