It's Official: Swollen Waterways in New Orleans Indicates Possibility of Mississippi River Flooding


Planetary Note 4/29/11: We've been watching the water levels rising on the levee's. The Old Miss River is swollen, her waters spilling onto some of the banks.



 "I still don't think people understand the immensity of this flood,"  "The rain event we've had the past two weeks is 600 percent above normal."

Monday, May 9, 2011
The Bonnet Carré Spillway will be open on Monday, May 9, 2011 in order to keep the volume of Mississippi River flows at New Orleans from exceeding 1.25 million cubic feet per second (cfs). Opening procedures will begin at approximately 8 a.m. Media and the general public are allowed to view the spillway opening at the Bonnet Carré Spillway Project Office, located at 16302 River Roadin Norco, Louisiana. The opening of the Bonnet Carre Spillway can be watched from your computer by going to the following link http://www.ustream.tv/channel/bonnet-carre. We anticipate the channel will be live at approximately 0755 on Monday, May 9, 2011.

Post-Katrina Stress Disorder and Empathetic Hearts

I was showing a few of my neighbors photos of the devastation and tribulations of the peoples who were involved with the Tornadoes on April 27, 2011.

Many shared of how much it reminded them of what they saw after Katrina. And I watched as then through the empathy in their hearts, their own healing process evolved a little further and talk moved to personal experiences and memories.

Blessings, to all of my planetary brothers and sisters - everywhere- who are suffering.

One Love
Blessed be,
your planetary sister.

Prayers for the Suffering

So much planetary destruction and death...

So many are suffering on our planet.

Prayers for the suffering.

The People of South Sudan Need Our Help - Deadly Black Death Infecting Our Planetary Brothers and Sisters



Servant’s Heart Relief Labors to Contain Outbreak of Kala-azar in South Sudan

“Black Death” disease has 95% fatality rate in untreated infected patients



Servant’s Heart Relief is in need of at least $75,000 to help contain the Kala-azar outbreak and treat the infected patients. The special funding will help purchase additional medical supplies that are directly related to the diagnosis and treatment of the disease. The funds will also cover the costs of hiring additional health workers to assist in the diagnosis and treatment, and the costs of transporting medicines and personnel to key treatment locations throughout the region. If Servant’s Heart Relief is able to raise more than $75,000, these vital funds will be used to purchase chemically-treated bed nets, and to spray areas around huts and medical clinics.


South Sudan is facing the worst outbreak of Kala-azar in the past 10 years as health workers from Servant’s Heart Relief race against the clock to stop the spread of the deadly disease. Also known as visceral leishmaniasis, leishmania infection, Black Death, black fever, or Dumdum fever, Kala-azar is a chronic and typically fatal disease that attacks the liver, spleen, lymph nodes and bone marrow. External symptoms of Kala-azar include sores on the body, fever, inflamed spleen, abdominal pain, headaches, and joint pain. The disease is spread by sand fly bites that infect the bitten with a parasite called Leishmania donovani. South Sudan is currently facing one of its worst dry seasons in a decade, leading to higher than normal populations of sand flies, which are smaller than mosquitoes, and very difficult to detect or see. Currently there is no vaccine for prevention of the disease. The only prevention is “do not get bitten by a sand fly”. Left untreated, more than 95% of people infected with Kala-azar die within two to three months.
South Sudan is the world’s newest country, and is expected to gain independence from Sudan in July 2011. In the regions of South Sudan that Servant’s Heart Relief serves medically, more than 300 people have been confirmed to have the Kala-azar infection, with an additional seven to ten new cases being confirmed each day. Approximately 30% of the identified patients are pregnant women or malnourished children. Regions being served by other relief groups are reporting similar findings. “Kala-azar is highly contagious and each untreated person can infect up to a dozen others,” said Christopher Plante, Board Secretary, Servant’s Heart Relief. “There is a time lag of three to five days between infection and the appearance of symptoms, so an infected person can infect others before realizing they have contracted the disease. At the current rate, the number of infections is expected to double in less than two weeks, which means we are in a desperate race to prevent an outbreak of exponential proportions.”

Servant’s Heart Relief has established two Primary Health Care Centers (PHCC) to treat Kala-azar patients. In addition, Servant’s Heart Relief health workers travel throughout the region to diagnose and treat patients who are unlikely to know they have the disease until they are too sick to travel by foot to the PHCCs. There is currently no vaccine to prevent infection of Kala-azar. The standard treatment for Kala-azar is for 3 injections of Sodium Stibogluconate (SSG), administered over the course of 3 days. SSG injections, however, can be fatal for pregnant women and malnourished children, so these individuals are treated with an IV drug over 15 days. The Government of South Sudan Ministry of Health has provided the SSG medication, but Servant’s Heart Relief has had to purchase the syringes to administer the treatments. Additionally, Servant’s Heart Relief is hopeful that the Ministry of Health will be able to provide the IV medication in the next several days. However, Servant’s Heart Relief must purchase the related IV tubing and IV bags of saline. Servant’s Heart Relief has already purchased the IV needles with its own funds. With early diagnosis and treatment, the survival rate for Kala-azar is over 90%. “It is the lack of emergency funds that are hampering our efforts to address the logistics, treatment and transport for remote patients,” Mr. Plante said.

GULF UPDATE 8/20/11 - Oil Rising Again from Macondo Well: BP Hires Fleet of 40 Shrimp Boats to Lay Boom Around Old Deepwater Horizon Site

BP Was Drilling In A Mine Field! Gulf of Mexico Is Major Dumping Ground For Unexploded Bombs.

You learn the darnedest things on the internets. For example, I just found out that the Gulf of Mexico is the primary disposal site for unexploded military munitions - over 30 million pounds of bombs, projectiles and chemical ordnance.

And because records are spotty and incomplete, we don't know exactly where these dumps are.

Planetary Update: 8/13/11

Dr. Janet Starr Hull: The Earth Expansion Theory in the Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is heating up due to a rise in magma flow convecting (running like a conveyor belt) under the Gulf floor. This is the Earth Expansion Theory, where the Earth heats up, filling the salt domes with tar (magma melting oil and creating tar), and pushing the ocean floor up. The tar bubbles as it heats up, and it outgases.”


This expansion lifts the Gulf floor, which displaces the water and floods the coastal areas, and also causes movement along the bordering plate boundaries and fracture zones. Texas is now having more earthquakes everyday, including the 3.0 west of Waxahachie a few days ago along the Balcones. The Llano Uplift will respond, as well as the New Madrid.

“This is the Earth Expansion Theory, with a flow of rising magma under the Gulf floor.”
