BANGLADESH -- Floods that have killed at least 12 people and left thousan=
homeless are spreading across Bangladesh. Rivers including the Ganges,
Brahmaputra, Jamuna, and Meghna swelled further, flooding new areas in 16
districts. Officials said many villagers were facing a shortage of dry fo=
and drinking water after many wells were submerged. Thousands of acres of
crops had been flooded but it is too early to assess damage. [from]

CHINA -- Some of the worst floods in over a century hit the Chinese
provinces of Hubei, Guizhou, Zhejiang, Anhui and Jiangxi. Many areas face=
bleak harvest, with newly-planted rice and corn seedlings washed away and
1.35 million hectares (3.3 million acres) swamped. Nationwide, 3708 peopl=
were injured and tens of thousands left homeless after the collapse of
211,000 houses. 15 million people had been affected and at least 237 peop=
have died. [from]

EUROPE -- Europe's climate zones may be shifting northwards, bringing
southern England's temperatures closer to those in central France and
threatening the northwest with floods. Global warming is pushing up
temperatures in some areas and leading to much more dramatic changes at t=
local level, such as droughts,floods, and more frequent and severe storms.

LITHUANIA -- Police officers in the Lithuanian capital of Vilnius, have
been placed on alert after two them spotted a UFO hovering above a nearby
village. [from Peter Edgar Dick, Holland]

MEXICO -- 400 men, women, and children assaulted a grain train and carrie=
its cargo off to their homes. At the end of the day, 40 tons of corn had
disappeared into the community of San Nicolas de la Garza. Mexico will ne=
to import nearly six million tons of corn to meet national demand and has
only eight days of corn in reserve. The nation could slide into famine if
rains fail. [Geri Guidetti,]

MONGOLIA -- After a winter of little snow, 23 million acres of forest and
range lands in northern Mongolia (one-fifth its coniferous forests) have
been destroyed by three months of the most extensive fires in memory.
Twenty-six people have died, 800 have been injured or made homeless, and
thousands of head of livestock have died. The ability to fight the fires
was hampered by poor-to-nonexistent communications equipment, obsolete an=
inadequate fire-fighting equipment, untrained personnel, and rugged

NEW ZEALAND -- Belching ash from Mount Ruapehu in New Zealand's central
North Island Sunday forced the closure of all airports north of the
volcano, including the main international gateway in Auckland.
Vulcanologists also reimposed a level three alert on the five point scale.

OMAN -- Four Britons, two Americans, and a Dutch woman were among 26 peop=
of different nationalities drowned during a flash flood at a recreation
area known as Snake Canyon in Oman. [from]

SRI LANKA -- Sri Lanka imposed daily, eight-hour power cuts in March afte=
water levels in hydropower reservoirs, which provide most electricity,
plunged due to the failure of the winter northeast monsoon and delayed
onset of the southwest monsoon. Now that rain has started to fall, the
state power utility will decide whether to reduce the duration of power
cuts which have caused an estimated daily loss to business of more than o=
billion rupees.

UKRAINE -- Ukraine, once the breadbasket of Europe and producer of a
quarter of the former Soviet Union's grain, faces the worst harvest in th=
last 17 years. Officials blamed a drought in the first part of the year f=
the predicted 28 million tons, down from 36.5 million tons last year and =
million plus in 1990. Tight grain supplies mean the Ukraine will have
little left for exports. [from]

UNITED STATES -- Fueled by drought, firefighters in Arizona, California,
Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah, battled brush a=
woodland fires in the worst summer wildfire season in memory -- three tim=
normal. So far this year, over 68,000 wildfires in the United States have
burned 2.3 million acres, compared with 41,594 fires that had burned
674,452 acres by the same time last year. The five-year average for the
period is 652,945 acres consumed by 39,570 fires. [from]

UNITED STATES -- A severe winter with prolonged cold, pesticides, and two
kinds of parasitic mites (the European tracheal mite first seen in the U.=
in 1984 and the Varroa mite from Asia which was first seen in the U.S. in
1987) is estimated to have killed 50 to 80 percent of the bee population
(wild honeybees have virtually disappeared) in the northern U.S. -- worst
loss on record. Bees pollinate about a third of U.S. crops.

UNITED STATES -- Red tide has been blamed for the 304 deaths among the
whiskered, walrus-like manatees along the southwest Florida coast.
Scientists believe colder water forced the animals to gather in warmer
waters where red tide concentrations were highest. [from Peter Edgar Dick

VENEZUELA -- More than 10,000 Amazonian Indians are homeless and destitut=
after the Orinocco river broke its banks and flooded vast swathes of
Venezuela's deep Amazonian south near the Brazilian border. Water levels
rose 10 feet (3 metres) in some places after two weeks of incessant rain
flooded the Orinocco, Venezuela's largest river. Over 4000 hectares (9900
acres) of land cultivated by the Yanomani and Yekuanas Indians have been
affected. [from]

[NOTE FROM JC: Just some thoughts on all of this -- Most of us know that
ash in the atmosphere from volcanoes cools the global climate. So does
smoke from forest fires. Earth seems to be having a lot of belching
volcanoes and forest fires this year and I wonder whether or not this mig=
not be a scientific response-mechanism traceable to global warming with i=
increase in greenhouse gases. I also wonder whether anyone has calculated
the degree to which all this smoke will offset global warming in the next
few years.]

While it is true that bees are not native, neither are most of the crops
that they pollinate, sigh. You might want to consider that a Native
American diet (and garden) is particularily desirable as the crop situati=
continues to worsen. Grains, at least, are wind-pollinated, but there is =
wheat disease starting to spread through America. I believe I read that i=
originated in Pakistan, and how it got here is not clear. Corn is
definitely the way to go.

This bee die-off is nearly unprecedented. I've hung out on the bee
biologist list for a long time, and there has been no time recorded where=
die-off of bees of this magnitude has been recorded. One also can't
attribute it to mite resistance from miticide use. The first folks to
experience near-100% die-off were those with untreated hives. After two
years, alarms started to sound, and use of miticide was the *only* way th=
most beekeepers have been able to survive at all. And now, even that
doesn't look like it's going to work, with PMS popping up to "supplement"
the mites. (BTW, the law requires that Apistan can only be used when no
honey is being brought into the hive -- in the winter -- and all miticide
must be removed from the hive before the spring honey flow begins.)

My own bees, who are normally gentle enough that I work them  without any
protective gear at all, were *very* grouchy last year. They'd try to run =
off if I came anywhere near the hive, and I had to wear protective clothi=
for the first time! This year, they seem to be back to being their sweet
and gentle selves. So, what was it about last year?

I read somewhere, once, that some believe that bees are somehow tuned in =
the electromagnetics of the planet, and it's one of the systems they use =
navigate by. So, if the bees are grouchy, or dying, what does this say
about the electromagnetics of the planet?

Earlier there was discussion of the rapid, sharp decline in North America=
bee populations. As stated, this is a critical indicator of crisis in the

In part, this is because bees pollinate flowers. Grasses and legumes self
pollinate; many other angiosperms (flowering plants) are wind pollinated.
But a great number need insects -- mainly bees -- to transfer male pollen
to female ovaries. In gardens these include curcurbits (squash, melon,
cucumber), brassicas (cabbage, broccoli, turnip, kale, radish, mustard,
brussels sprout, etc.) and nightshades (tomato, pepper, potato, eggplant).
Without bees, the reproductive cycle of these plant families is broken --
or at least severely weakened.

Actually, the bee population crash isn't sudden. Bee mites -- usually
blamed as the plague decimating hives -- have been a serious and growing
threat to bees for more than a decade. But like HIV in AIDS, bee mites ar=
an "opportunistic infection" and only a symptom -- not a cause.

Some writers noted bees are magnetically sensitive and wondered if
collapsing bee colonies indicate changing geomagnetism. Wise words -- a
peek into a dark mystery. Earth's magnetic field is indeed undergoing rap=
changes in intensity, polarity, frequency, phase, and topography.

My own encounters with bees convinced me they deteact, react, and navigat=
magnetic flux. The idea of a "beeline" contains the notion of a magetic,
straightline compass bearing. I've seen bees deflected from their straigh=
flight lines by magnetic fields from ballast transformers in fluourescent
light fixtures. From dowsing, I know bees normally locate their hives at
magnetically active spots on the ground. You can bet abnormal bee-havior =
including population drops -- indicates disturbed magnetic flux.

Hazards of Man-Made Magnetism
by David Yarrow 1990
Part 2: Spin the Tale on the Dragon

[To review: the newly emerging understanding of magnetism in biology and
ecology shows mounting evidence that man-made electromagnetism pollutes o=
airwaves and brainwaves, jams cell-to-cell communications, and scrambles
primary geomagnetic oscillations. Here's a snip from a part on magnetism,
in bees specifically, and biology in general. Note: EM =3D electromagneti=


To understand magnetism's role in life, a first step is to show that
organisms have intrinsic EM fields. In the 1940s, Harold Burr of Yale
University devised the first electronic voltmeter able to measure as litt=
as .001 volt. Burr used his new extra-sensitive tool to map electric fiel=
in living organisms. Burr's work with DC electric potentials was ignored =
most biologists, but some went on to develop EEG, EKG, and EMG which
measure the body's pulsating AC electricity.

A second step is to show organisms can sense EM. In the 1950s, Frank Brow=
endocrinologist at Northwestern, found snails have two antennae to detect
magnetic direction which they use to navigate. Most scientists dismissed
this as impossible, yet Brown went on to show geomagnetism affects all
organisms he tested, including mice, bees, fruit flies, potatoes, and

In 1960, Andus discovered magnetotrophism -- magnetic effects on growth:
oat shoots and cress roots grow oriented to magnetic fields. Later,
scientists found corn pollen tubes grow oriented to magnetic fields, mayb=
due to changes in intercellular calcium ion flow. Magnetism is known to
alter biochemical reactions by influencing electron spin states in reacti=
molecules, such as electrons in photosynthetic bacteria.

In 1971, naturalist Richard Blakemore of Woods Hole Marine Biology Lab
noticed that bacteria collected from Cape Cod marshes crowded to the nort=
side of culture dishes. He rotated the plates, and bacteria migrated back
to the north. Using a new tool -- an electron microscope -- he found tiny
chains of micro-crystals of magnetite in bacteria serve as a compass. The=
were unit cell crystals -- the smallest a magnetite crystal can be.

He then took north-seeking bacteria to the southern hemisphere. They
continued to swim north a few weeks, then "turned tail" and began swimmin=
south. Electron microscopy revealed they'd disassembled and rebuilt the
magnetite crystals to adapt to a changed magnetic pole. Bacteria don't
"think" north; they become a compass.

Also in the 70s, Bill Keeton at Cornell University reported homing pigeon=
with magnets on the back of their heads lost their navigational ability o=
cloudy days. Further study of pigeons with Helmholtz EM coils on their
heads showed they use magnetic north as their reference point. Beehives,
too, were enclosed by Helmholtz coils -- and bees became disoriented in
their navigational dances.

Without question birds and bees derive directional data from magnetic
sensing of geomagnetism. The question now was: how?

Another breakthrough came in 1971, when Brian Josephson invented a new
crystal semiconductor to make possible superconducting quantum interferen=
detectors (SQUID) -- which are extremely sensitive to magnetism. This new
tool led to a scientific revolution: Bioelectromagnetics. One of the firs=
things found by SQUID was delicate magnetic fields about our head. Whole
bees were found to be magnetic.

SQUIDs can locate where magnetic material is in an organism. Magnetite wa=
found in all species studied. Bee magnetism seems to be in their abdomen.
Pigeons have a magnetite crystal cluster wrapped in nerves on the brain
surface between the left lobe and skull. Magnetic sensing has been found =
whales, tuna, dolphins, butterflies, frogs, worms, and migrating birds.
Labs train animals to detect minute magnetic fields. Organisms from algae
to man use this inner sense to orient and navigate.

Dr. Robin Baker of England's Manchester University has shown humans have
their own magnetic compass. With minimal training, people display innate
ability to locate magnetic north. Further, in various experiments, Baker
has shown human homing ability -- that people can easily learn to choose
the correct direction home from any location. Most intriguing, this
direction sensing is lost if a magnet is held on the forehead only 15

In primates and humans, this newfound magnetic organ is sited behind the
ethmoid sinus in front of the pituitary gland. It can detect less than .0=
gauss within a second of arc -- far more sensitive than our best compass.
This gives new meaning to the traditional common sense advice to "follow
your nose."

In pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey a blindfolded child is spun around, then
tries to stick a tail on a paper donkey. This age-old game is no childish
amusement but a training exercise in magnetic sensing. Blindfolded, the
child must learn to orient and home to successfully tack a tail on a
donkey's derriere.

It's been shown organisms respond to magnetism far below levels once
thought theoretically possible. Man's power and communications systems us=
extensive portions of the EM spectrum. The effects of this on humans is
virtually unknown. Is modern man lost in his own thick EM fog? His cells
choking in noisy EM smog? Slowly drowning in ELF waves from transformers?

David, absolutely cool stuff....

A man told me a long time ago that bees "fly on their sound" as do many
'saucers' he claimed as well (witness the many eye/ear-witnesses to flyin=
disks that later refer to them sounding like a "swarm of bees" and so

He said the sound bees produce "separates" the Earth's EM grid into lines
of force thereby allowing the bee to insert itself into the grid, which
then allows it to move about forward, backward, up and down, and so
forth... depending on which polarity and direction it chooses or orients
itself to.. I suppose this being done internally by act of will and so

Do you know any research along these lines as far as bees and the sound
they produce causing any measurable EM effects around them? It seems it
would be quite easy to do such research

This man told me one day (in my lifetime he claimed..., I'm 44) that we
would have little, what I have since chose to call "Singin' Bee Cars," th=
would float not too far off the ground, 12-15 feet or so, utiliizing this
sound/EM aspect that bees use -- allowing us to get free from not only oi=
and internal-combustion technology but from the wheel itself and the road=
to which the wheel has enslaved us

These "Singin' Bee Cars" would have energy bubbles around them making the=
sort of like floating bumper cars and virtually impossible to crash into
each other as they tooled around.

It's Official -- Grain Supply in Doubt
=A9 Geri Guidetti, 1996

This report will be in addition to my normal, weekly grain supply update.
Data from farms reflecting last week's weather and planting progress acro=
the land are not yet available. I expect they will be within the next two
days. Information in this report reflects important new analyses of the
Nation's grain supplies and markets up to July 2, 1996.

"We're not going to run out of (corn) supply" this summer, "but Lord help
us if we have a crop failure," Daniel Basse, executive VP of AgResource
Inc., a Chicago agricultural research firm, told the Wall Street Journal.
His assessment reflects the new pessimism among grain analysts who had
expected that this year's corn reserves would reach an all-time low becau=
of several years of bad corn harvests. You'll remember that we were to be
down to a two-week supply when we are ready to harvest this year's crop.
But, on Friday, the Agriculture Department reported that corn reserves on
June 1st totaled only 1.72 billion bushels, a mere half of what we had la=
year and much lower than even the most pessimistic analysts had predicted.
Then Monday's weather forecasts for the next two weeks were released; mor=
above-normal temperatures and below-normal precipitation in growing areas
already in trouble. Above normal rainfall and cold temperatures had alrea=
plagued the Midwest, delaying spring planting.

Many farmers had switched to lower yielding, shorter-season corn varietie=
or chose to plant substitute crops, instead. Though the higher prices for
corn encouraged them to plant more acreage than they had in years, the
weather has not been cooperating. Estimates of the potential size of this
year's harvest have been slipping daily. Mr. Urbanchuk of AUS Consultants
predicts a corn harvest of 8.8 billion bushels, while David Nelson at
NatWest Securities says only 8.3 billion bushels are likely. Neither of
these potential harvests would provide enough corn to rebuild the U.S. co=
reserves even to comfortable levels. That means high prices through NEXT
year while we wait for 97s crop. The Agriculture Department said "corn
demand is so strong that, if unabated, spot shortages might develop in th=
weeks before the autumn harvest replenishes supplies," according to the
Journal. Corn futures prices hit an all-time record yesterday on the
Chicago  Board of Trade.

In fact, on Friday, July corn rose 34.75 cents a bushel, the highest,
single-day rise since 1973. Mr. Basse told the Journal that "simple
economics" will stabilize the market. As prices get high enough for deman=
to drop off, fears that corn stockpiles will run out will subside. (Don't
count on it, IMO.)

The Agriculture Dept., in the meantime, reported that it will release 16
million of its 45-million bushel grain reserve within the next 10 days to
ease the crisis for U.S. cattle ranchers. The ranchers were already
switching to wheat as corn prices climbed higher than wheat. Most of the
released stockpile reserves  will be going to the drought-stricken
Southwest. On Monday, President Clinton declared the Southwest to be in a
state of emergency.

Now for the trickle down. We can live without corn-on-the-cob, corn bread
and, if we have to, even  the beef, chicken and pork fed by corn, right?
Well how about all of those corn syrup-sweetened products most folks eat =
like sodas, catsup, cereals, jams, jellies, juices, salad dressings, etc.
ad nauseum. Or how about all of those products made with corn oil? Or the
ethanol fuel supplies? Or citric acid in nearly all canned fruits,
vegetables, sodas, etc.? Well, Archer-Daniels-Midland, a large producer o=
corn-based ethanol fuel, is already operating its four plants at 20 perce=
of capacity and reports that its corn syrup business is only "marginally

A couple of weeks ago, I suggested the writing was on the wall for food
inflation. Economists now look at grocery inflation to rise from its 2.8
percent level in 95 to up to 5.5 percent. If we have a widespread corn cr=
failure this autumn, count on a shortage and much higher food inflation
than even these estimates. Of course, no one has yet written about the
impact of continuing and growing global demand for U.S. grain on our
supplies and costs. I mentioned Egypt last week. Keep your eyes on the
Ukraine, normally a grain exporter. They are in weather trouble, too. Mor=
as this week's data arrives. If you use citric acid in your canning, you
might want to get it at its current price. Open-pollinated corn seed for
planting next year? Now's the time to try to find it quickly. For those
with my book, the seed houses begin on p. 39. Good time, in general, to
stock up on things you don't think you can live without that contain corn
products. BTW, you can freeze corn oil margarine. Bet on canola and soy
oils going up in price as demand for these increase when corn oil is too
expensive or nonexistent. It will be stockpiled by industries that depend
on it -- chip manufacturers, etc.

Anyone one on this list know anything about the "Schumann resonance"? I
picked this up and was wondering if anyone could verify it for me?

Earth's background base frequency, or "heartbeat," (called Schumann
resonance, or SR) is rising dramatically. Though it varies among
geographical regions, for decades the overall measurement was 7.8 cycles
per second. This was once thought to be a constant; global military
communications developed on this frequency. The rate is currently reporte=
at 8.6, and climbing. Science doesn't know why, or what to make of it.

> Subject: UFO flap in Australia

from CNI News,

Australia just finished the third week of a UFO flap that shows no signs =
dying down. On Wednesday, June 19, the Australian national television
network, TEN TV, aired video footage of the bright orange UFO that cavort=
over the city of Adelaide four days earlier.

The flap hit high gear last weekend when orange UFOs appeared suddenly ov=
Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.  (See "UFOs Trouble Hotline" in the
Melbourne Sunday Sun-Herald for June 16, 1996).

According to Ross Dowe of Australia's National UFO Hotline, his staff
received "about a dozen calls" on Friday night, June 14, with excited
callers describing "strange bright orange lights" over their neighborhood=

On Saturday night, June 15, the lights were seen again in downtown
Adelaide, in the Sydney suburbs of Sutherland and Parramatta, and at Kew
near Melbourne. In Kew, residents saw "five orange illuminations going
straight up into the sky."

On Sunday, June 16, more lights were seen in Melbourne, and a single
glowing UFO was videotaped in Adelaide.

Outlying regions of Australia were not spared, either. Orange UFOs were
reported at Mudgeeraba in Queensland, at Campbelltown in South Australia
and over the nation's capital, Canberra.

"We normally receive calls just in one area," Ross Dowe told the
Sun-Herald. "But if this is a hoax, it's a hoax that's been done on the
national scale over the past six weeks."

On Monday, June 17, radio listeners in Melbourne heard the Royal Australi=
Air Force (RAAF) announce the formation of a commission to study
"mysterious lights in the sky." However, other correspondents in Australi=
dispute this report.

On Tuesday, June 18, Melbourne saw yet another overflight of orange light=
This was described as a group of 10 orange UFOs arrayed in triangular
formation, flying northeast of the city. Several people watched the aeria=
procession fly over Preston on its way to Eltham.

> From: Eitta <>

Greetings from the Meditation SIG!

The Meditation SIG has come together to direct the Light through weekly
meditations on specific topics. A little effort can go a long way toward
improving the health and well-being of Creation. We believe we can and wi=
make a positive difference by collectively focusing our intent and applyi=
our spirit.

Even if you haven't joined the SIG, you can still privately lend your
energy to this effort. We invite you to meditate within your own traditio=
on the following topic for the week of 7/7/96:

The Meditation Topic for this week:
Intelligent Use of Natural Resources

How often did our parents tell us to "turn that switch (appliance, etc) o=
when you're done using it!"? Back then, the request was often an issue of
economy rather than ecology. Today, most of us are more aware than
generations past. We know our Earth is in trouble, and we have the
intelligence and information to make a difference if we choose... even in
little ways.

Once again, this is an active meditation in two parts. First, declare thi=
an energy reduction week. Research and contemplate how you can extend and
refine this energy frugality forward into the months and years to come. I=
you feel comfortable, welcome your friends and neighbors into this concep=
and practice.

Second, perform a weekly meditation focusing on illuminating corporation'=
and world government's minds and hearts that the consumption of natural
resources occurs with frugality and wisdom. Imagine that all those with
"decision making authority" are suddenly ravaged by a deep desire to make
natural resource recommendations with respect and concern for the Earth a=
Her creatures.

Please join this meditation with the understanding that while we are free
to consume the Earth's resources as our birthright, that consumption
requires great responsibility. When we take, we must always give in retur=
so that Creation's balance is maintained.
