New lava flows open on active Hawaii volcano

HAWAII NATIONAL PARK, Hawaii (AP) – Two new lava flows have broken out at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano, but neither is threatening nearby communities.

Kilauea is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. In 2014 lava from one of its vents crept into the town of Pahoa, smothering part of a cemetery and burning down a home.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the new lava flows broke out Tuesday morning from one of Kilauea’s cones.

The U.S. Geological Survey released video showing the glowing red lava as it pushed through a black landscape.

Kilauea has been erupting continuously for more than 33 years. It’s one of five volcanoes that make up Hawaii’s Big Island.

Somehow you knew that was coming right? Still have not heard where all that gold in Cypriot banks ended up after their little banking crisis.

There is so much Sh#t going on now

that it is impossible to keep up with it all. There is probably 100 articles today, that any one of which, if happened 20 years ago would have caused an outrage.

We live in a country where, as a parent, you could get your children taken away from you if you let them play outside without direct supervision.

However, if your babysitter smacks your toddler across the face so hard the entire right side of the baby’s face is left black and blue and swollen, giving him a black eye, and you take your baby to the hospital and the doctor then shows you the handprints, which there are copious pictures of, and even a detective who investigates the evidence says the impact of the smack could’ve killed the baby, not to mention the guy who beat the baby in the first place even admits he did it…


The case gets dropped for “lack of evidence”.

Look at what happened to baby Jacob while he was being babysat:

Venezuela sells gold reserves as economy worsens

gold bars©Dreamstime

Venezuela’s gold reserves have plunged to their lowest level on record after it sold $1.7bn of the precious metal in the first quarter of the year to repay debts. The country is grappling with an economic crisis that has left it struggling to feed its population.

The Opec member’s gold reserves have dropped almost a third over the past year and it sold over 40 tonnes in February and March, according to IMF data. Gold now makes up almost 70 per cent of the country’s total reserves, which fell to a low of $12.1bn last week.

Venezuela has larger crude reserves than Saudi Arabia but has been hard hit by years of mismanagement and, more recently, depressed prices for oil. Oil accounts for 95 per cent of its export earnings. Despite the recent price rebound, declining oil output is likely to take a further toll on the economy.

The IMF forecasts the economy will shrink 8 per cent this year, and 4.5 per cent in 2017, after a 5.7 per cent contraction in 2015. Inflation is forecast to exceed 1,642 per cent next year, fuelled by printing money to fund a fiscal deficit estimated at about 17 per cent of gross domestic product.

Venezuela began selling its gold reserves in March 2015, according to IMF data. At roughly 367 tonnes, Venezuela has the world’s 16th-biggest gold reserves, according to the World Gold Council. In contrast, China and Russia both added to their gold holdings this year, the data show.

Gold prices have risen 15 per cent this year. Last year Venezuela’s central bank swapped part of its gold reserves for $1bn in cash through a complex agreement with Citi.

The late president Hugo Chávez had said he would free Venezuela from the “dictatorship of the dollar” and directed the central bank to ditch the US dollar and start amassing gold instead. In 2011, as a safeguard against market instability, Chávez brought most of the gold stored overseas back to Caracas.

The gold swap is another indication the country is desperate for cash. Venezuela and its national oil company PDVSA have some $6bn to repay in principal and interest payments this year, according to Russ Dallen of investment bank Caracas Capital Markets.

Amid fears of default, PDVSA is attempting to restructure some of its debt, sources say.

Seeking to reassure investors this month, Miguel Pérez Abad, Venezuela’s economic tsar, told news agencies that the country has reached a deal with its main financier China to extend loans, and that he would further cut imports — even if shortages of basic goods are ravaging the country.

“We have a cash flow problem, but we have sufficient assets for the short-term and will reprofile the debt levels in an intelligent manner. There are various scenarios, and all of the proposals are extraordinary for the bondholders. They have the absolute assurance that their securities are guaranteed,” Mr Pérez Abad told Bloomberg. Ecoanalítica, a Caracas-based consultancy, said in a note that “we consider that the payments of external debt is a priority for the executive”.

lol on the smiley face.

Yea not everyone can do or want to do computers or machines.

While watching shark tank the other day they made a deal with a start up company but only if they outsourced to China. I got to hand it to them they refused said they want their product to be made in the US. They said moms coming in saying they wanted anything made in USA not China. They got another offer from another took it and didn’t outsource. They were Chinese Americans. Americans

We have businesses undercutting honest businesses with things like Free over time out bidding the honest companies like CSC a Airforce guy told me about when they merged or going to with HP.

Taxes and Regs from clueless corrupt politicians is a big part of it and now gheir OBAMA care. It’s not all of it when they set a green light to corporate corruption cutting wages for maximum profit to appease Wall Street investors because they must keep increasing profits even if it means laying off the people who made them rich. If not Wall Street their own pocket books. People are now temp workers. Then when they need their drive and or expertise they want them and gone when they think they can make it without them and or replace with cheaper labor. I feel bad for the young these days because they will have to learn to be multitasers. Others in management will learn to be corrupt and the ones who actually do the work will have to be aware in that case. I quit one job due to corruption and they lost their clients from the veterans and Kaiser. Another they had to replace me with two people so that cost them. I took their clients. In the meantime they will have to be aware of where jobs are moving and head in that direction best suited for them and not to get too tired to keep looking. It’s no longer about being loyal to some companies or define yourself by your job alone because your just expendable to them but to look after yourself. Yea your right when no ones buying. Meanwhile the focus should be in the government.

I agree with you that drugging children is awful but do not credit Molyneux with presenting it because when people wish to pull the wool over the eyes of the listener or reader they use an evil tool known as inversion, wherein a portion of the message presented is truth, allowing them to spread their intended and nefarious agenda because so few people are aware of the deceit.

“With computers and robots come opportunity though because someone has to maintain and fix them.”
Not neccessarily.  I used to think my job was safe because I was the maintenance guy who installed and fixed that stuff.  Then the brainiac ‘business managers’ eliminated my job, also.

George Ure at  www.urbansurvival.com has long ranted about robotics destroying the economy we once knew.  The problem is that the tax structures make it advantageous for a business to invest in robotics as capital, and reap the rewards of robotic labor without having to pay the taxes of ongoing labor and production humans.    Ure posits that robotic factories should be taxed on their labor-saving output… per piece, to be put on equal footing with human labor.

We are now seeing the business ‘backlash’ against the $15 minimum-wage demands of fast food workers.  There are now ‘back kitchen’ machines that robotically serve up the McDonalds menu, with no human labor involved except to feed food supplies into the robot kitchen.

Robotics will reach a tipping point when no humans will have jobs or income to purchase the products the robots produce.  Henry Ford was a visionary when he set up his assembly lines.  He paid his workers enough so that they could afford to purchase a car that they helped produce.

I pity the young generation, and am glad I am not among them.  They have no clue what is coming, and are ill equipped to handle it when it comes.

Did you check out the map? In most states “truck driver” was the most frequently stated employment. Gonna be a lot of lost jobs when automation really takes hold. Not everyone can be computer programmers or robot technicians.

Now I Know Why the MSM Lies.

With computers and robots come opportunity though because someone has to maintain and fix them. Like the webmaster on Oasis. Just not as many needed will the problem. The other problem is that not all people are computer type people. They are not interested just want a job especially when young. You can see how electric ticky demands will bring about increasing need and prices and possibly carrears and investments for the future if not outsourced or insourced.  The danger is a power out can shut everything down. There was one today in Washington that caused traffic problems with street lights going out. It shut down big parts of the city and probably banks.

The “System” Won’t Survive The Robots

Submitted by Paul Rosenberg via FreemansPerspective.com,

It’s really just a matter of time; the working man’s deal with his overseers is half dead already. But there’s still inertia in the system, and even the losers are keeping the faith. Hope dies slowly, after all.

Nonetheless, the deal is collapsing and a new wave of robots will kill it altogether. Unless the overseers can pull back on technology – very fast and very hard – the deal that held through all our lifetimes will unwind.

We All Know the Deal
We usually don’t discuss what the “working man’s deal” is, but we know it just the same. It goes like this:

If you obey authority and support the system, you’ll be able to get a decent job. And if you work hard at your job, you’ll be able to buy a house and raise a small family.

This is what we were taught in school and on TV. It’s the deal our parents and grandparents clung to, and it’s even a fairly open deal. You can fight for the political faction of your choice and you can hold any number of religious and secular alliances, just as long as you stay loyal to the system overall.

This deal has been glamorized in many ways, such as, “Our children will be better off than we are,” “home ownership for everyone,” and of course, “the American Dream.” Except that it isn’t working anymore, or at least it isn’t working well enough.

Among current 20- and 30-year-olds, only about half are able to grasp the deal’s promises. That half is working like crazy, putting up with malignant corporatism and trying to keep ahead of the curve. The other half is dejected and discouraged, taking student loans to chase degrees (there’s more status in that than working at McDonald’s), or else they’re pacified with government handouts and distracted by Facebook.

The deal is plainly unavailable to about half of the young generation, but as I noted above, hope dies slowly and young people raised on promises are still waiting for the deal to kick in. It’s all they know.

Regardless, the deal has abandoned them. It has made them superfluous.

Here’s Why
Put very simply, the deal is dying because two things can no longer coexist:

#1: New technology.

#2: A system geared to old technology.

Let’s start with new technology: New machines and methods have made so many jobs obsolete that there aren’t enough to go around. Both North America and Europe are already filled with the unemployed or underemployed children of industrial workers. But at the same time, we are suffering no shortages; we have an overflow of stuff and a double overload of inane ads trying to sell it all. And there’s something important to glean from this:

Where goods abound, additional jobs are not required.

We don’t need more workers. Machines are producing plenty of stuff for us, and this becomes truer every day.

It’s how you go about it less you well that pic is a good start, You just tell them your doing a study on woman’s sufferage and how you come to appreciate the struggles of a woman. That you want to relay this back to other men. I bet all sorts of conversations will arise including that they dont believe you. Just think of all the women you’ll meet.

And after reading Goldilocks post in memory of Irish I got to missing a lot of folks we have not heard from in awhile. Sure be good if some of them would drop by and let us know how they are doing. Maybe our paths will cross again along this Golden Trail ?

Good to see you posting a bit more. I take that as a sign of better health. Now if we can just get Scruffy all healed up the Gold Gang can ride again.


Gold Limping And Miners Saying “We Don’t Care”

Posted by Mr.Copper @ 16:03 on May 25, 2016  

And that’s the way it should be. Share investors are supposed to be different than futures market gamblers. Totally different animals. Lower miners yesterday was a market price mistake.

This could be another reversal trend unfolding. No more lock step moves between margined futures crazy prices and the related commodity shares.
