“Celebrities, activists and political leaders are expected to join more than 100,000 people in New York City on Sunday for what organizers say will be the largest climate-change march in history.
The “People’s Climate March” has been endorsed by more than 1,400 organizations, including environment, faith and justice groups, as well as labor unions. Students have also mobilized marchers at more than 300 college campuses for the event, which calls on world leaders to do more to confront the threat of climate change and comes ahead of a United Nations climate summit.
“People from all walks of life, all over the world care deeply about climate change and are extremely worried and scared and so this march is showing the huge variety of people and the huge variety of reasons that people are invested in this issue,” march organizer Rachel Schragis told Al Jazeera.
Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio are expected to participate in Sunday’s march — which will wind its way through Midtown Manhattan on a two-mile route starting at 11:30 a.m.
After a moment of silence at 1 p.m., participants will be encouraged to use instruments, alarms and whistles to make as much noise as possible, helped by marching bands and the tolling of church bells.
“Archaeologists have unveiled the most detailed map ever produced of the earth beneath Stonehenge and its surrounds…
Most of the land surrounding Stonehenge had not been surveyed in this manner before and Prof Gaffney, the project’s lead researcher, said one key question always remained: “Was it really an excluded place, where only special people would come?”
The team’s new three-dimensional map, which covers an area of 12 sq km or 1,250 football fields, shows that this was not the case.”
“The intense seismic activity that started on 16 of August at Bárðarbunga persists. Very strong indications of ongoing magma movement, inconnection with dyke intrusion, is corroborated byGPS measurements. There are currently twoswarms: one to the E of Bárðarbunga caldera and one at the edge of Dyngjujökull just E of Kistufell. At 2.37 am on the 18th a strong earthquake (M4) was located in the Kistufell swarm.”
“In front of this wall was a slope in which was embedded a stone that jutted out - my stone. Often, when I was alone, I sat down on this stone. and then began an imaginary game that went something like this: “I am sitting on top of this stone and it is underneath.” But the stone also could say “I” and think: “I am lying here on this slop and he is sitting on top of me.” The question then arose: ‘“Am I the one who is sitting on the stone, or am I the stone on which he is sitting?””—

“Imagine a lump of iron the size of a tennis ball. Weigh it in your hand. Now let it drop on to your foot. How does that feel? Now imagine an identical object three times as dense. How would that feel if you dropped it? Would you ever walk again?
As well as being incredibly dense it is also incredibly hard and has the highest melting point of all the elements - 3,422C.
A century or so ago the world had no use for it - it was almost impossible to shape or work the stuff. Yet now we use tungsten to write with, to traverse glaciers, to emit X-rays and to destroy buildings without the use of explosives.”
“He says the bodies that are put inside the tombs, which are made of this stone, completely decompose in 40 days. We know that other ancient resources mention the fame of this type of stone. Thanks to these resources, we found out that magnificent tombs were made of this stone”—

“Oklahoma has had nearly double the number of earthquakes as California, localnews reported after five earthquakes on Thursday morning rattled an area of the state where oil and gas drilling is prevalent.
While California recorded 88 earthquakes of a magnitude 3.0 or greater this year, 174 of the same intensity have shaken Oklahoma. On Thursday, the region was hit by five quakes with magnitudes higher than 3.0 — the magnitude at which tremors can easily be felt, Oklahoma City’s KOCO news reported…
Seismologists have concluded that fracking — a process where water, sand and chemicals are shot underground at high pressure to release trapped oil and gas deposits — can cause small earthquakes.”
# 626....Bank of America 1985-86 Crisis ~ Saturn Return

Saturn was in Scorpio during the BofA equity crises in the spring of 1985. By fall of 1986 (September 17), when the bank suffered a 2 billion dollar stock loss, transiting Saturn was at 4 Sagittarius 27’.
In this Saturn Return year huge fines and losses are big news for America’s 2nd largest bank.
“(Reuters) - Bank of America Corp could pay more than $12 billion to settle probes by the Justice Department and a number of states into the bank’s alleged handling of shoddy mortgages, the Wall Street Journal said on Thursday, citing people familiar with the negotiations.
At least $5 billion of that amount is expected to go toward consumer relief consisting of help for homeowners in reducing principal amounts and monthly payments, and paying for blight removal in struggling neighborhoods, the paper said, citing people with knowledge about the issue.”
“(Reuters) - An Alaska volcano that has been spewing ash and lava for years began erupting with new intensity this week, pushing a plume of smoke and ash as high as 24,000 feet (7,315 meters) and prompting scientists to issue their highest volcanic alert in five years, authorities said on Tuesday.
But the intense action at the Pavlof Volcano, located in an uninhabited region nearly 600 miles (966 km) southwest of Anchorage, has so far not disrupted any regional air traffic, thanks to favorable weather that has made it easier for flights to navigate around the affected area.
Still, the eruption was intense enough for Alaska Volcano Observatory scientists to issue their first red alert warning since 2009, when the state’s Mount Redoubt had a series of eruptions that spewed ash 50,000 feet (15,240 meters).”
“Around 9,000 years ago in Turkey’s Anatolian plains, a citizen of the Neolithic settlement of Çatalhöyük daubed a scene in red ochre on the wall of their adobe house.
The image is commonly thought to depict a village in the foreground, looked down upon by a twin-peaked volcano that is spewing an explosion of lava and rock into the sky. Dated to approximately 6200 BC, it is thought to be the world’s first landscape drawing. Some experts describe it as the first ever map. And the distinctive twin-peaked volcano is usually identified as Mount Hasan.”
The Bank of America faced major existential challenges in 1986 and 2008. On September 17, 1986, a run on the bank’s stock stripped it of $2 billion. In 2008, under a Full Moon on September 15, synchronizing the “Sub Prime” Credit Crisis, BofA acquired the deeply troubled Merrill Lynch. Eventually Merrill’s troubles shook BofA. During these two specific years, the events synchronized around the time of the Bank’s historic birthdays, with Sun in Libra.
As these 2008 events unfolded, my ASCENDANT ruler Venus, Sun ruler Mercury, and Mars all conjoined at 17 Libra. I was tuned in to events facing the BofA - had been since the spring of 1985.
This evening, I learned that the Bank of America name was taken on November 3, 1930. I stood stunned taking in the fact that my father, who died last April, was born on November 4, 1930. Both horoscopes are heavy with Cardinal influences; Moon in Aries, Saturn in Capricorn, Jupiter and Pluto in Cancer, then Uranus in Aries. Over the decades that I have been ‘actively’ engaged with the Bank of America, have they been a proxy for my estranged relationship with my father?
From 1972, til his death in 2013, I did not spend a week in my father’s presence.
The awesome Cardinal ‘Grand Cosmic Cross’ filling the today’s Sky brings both man and bank into season. Jupiter, that penultimate planet symbol for growth, is returning.
