Marines from WWII battle return

Don’t you just love war?

Remains of 36 unidentified Marines from WWII battle return

About 520 U.S. servicemen are still unaccounted for from the battle.

A group called History Flight recovered the remains from the remote Pacific atoll of Tarawa, the U.S. Marine Corps said. A ceremony was held Sunday in Pearl Harbor to mark their return.

History Flight has started identifying the remains, and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency will complete the effort, the Marines said. The Marines plan to return the remains to their families after they’ve been identified.

More than 990 U.S. Marines and 30 sailors died during the three-day Battle of Tarawa in 1943. Japanese machine gun fire killed scores of Marines when their boats got stuck on the reef at low tide during the U.S. amphibious assault. Americans who made it to the beach faced brutal hand-to-hand combat.

Only 17 of the 3,500 Japanese troops survived. Of 1,200 Korean slave laborers on the island, just 129 lived.

I’m starting to love Turkey again

The Country not the bird. :-)

Yes, I love all birds, another post later? :-)

This is what the Moslems Islamic Religion of Allah should be like, Praise Allah!

All creation of Allah should be treated with the respect of Allah, because it/they are created by Allah?

It would seem that Turkey is now going to remind their neighbors, the ISIL/ISIS about just how all mighty and all powerful Allah is?

Thank-you my brothers and sisters of the country of Turkey (Aquine/Peace)!

Turkey expands anti-ISIS role

Jim Michaels, USA TODAY 8:35 a.m. EDT July 24, 2015

The United States and Turkey have reached an informal agreement that is expected to allow the U.S. military to launch airstrikes against the Islamic State from a key base inside Turkey, a senior U.S. military official said Thursday.

The agreement would represent a significant expansion of Turkey’s role in the conflict and a boost to the U.S.-led coalition fighting the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS.

Turkish jets strike ISIL targets in Syria

Lucy Kafanov and Jim Michaels, USA TODAY 1:53 p.m. EDT July 24, 2015

ISTANBUL — Turkish fighter planes bombed Islamic State positions in neighboring Syria for the first time in a pre-dawn attack Friday, a significant expansion of the battle against the extremist group, the Turkish government announced.

In another sign of Turkey’s new aggressive stance against the Islamic State, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan confirmed Friday that his country has agreed to allow manned aircraft and drones from a U.S.-led coalition to use the Incirlik Air Base in southern Turkey to launch airstrikes against the militants. The government said in a statement that the Turkish Air Force would join the coalition’s campaign for the first time.

A Turkish policeman, whose tear gas attack on a woman in a red dress became a symbol during anti-government uprising in 2013, has been found guilty of misconduct. The court handed him a suspended sentence and ordered him to plant 600 trees.

The Istanbul court sentenced police officer Fatih Zengin to 20 months in jail, which he will serve only in case of a repeated offence in the next five years, Reuters reported on Wednesday.

The officer will also have to plant 600 trees as community service and will be responsible for them during first six months after their planting.

Native American opening ceremony prayers

Welcome to my first visitor from the City of Llanelli in Carmarthenshire United Kingdom

Looking for information about a

Native American opening ceremony prayers

To one of our posting

Our sacred prayers at ceremonies

http://mysmudgingblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/our-sacred-prayers-at-ceremonies.html

First we must remember that there are still well over a thousand tribes across Indian Country and each might differ in prayer and ceremonies?

Some ceremonies start with a bag of wind standing up front forever trying to let people know how well he/she can speak and some little nobody like yours truly, just want to be quick about it and go sit down?

Truth be known,

Kiehtan, our name for Creator, is always watching everything going on Mother Earth and is the Supreme Being,

so impressing Kiehtan with a prayer would be just talk as you would to any elder.

However, you did come to our site so, if you want to understand what you call the opening prayer this would be my answer?

Because you, I assume because you asked, are having a ceremony?

The first thing everyone should do is invite Kiehtan to join in?

So, ask your God for a blessing on your ceremony and please come join in with the people?

Can you guess who owns the producers of these chicken products that are being recalled?

That would be the Koch Brothers, et al.

Food safety should be everyone’s top priority in this and every Country and selling and/or eating contaminated food is just crazy, when the whole world is totally wired and connected right now.

This was not the Koch Brother’s first brush with either bad food, or trouble at their Plants, as they have had issues several times in the past few years, links to these stories are below.

One of the stories that came up while looking for more about this chicken recall, was not about a recall at all, but about a raid on one of the Koch Plants.

Selling Off Apache Holy Land

I did write about this some time ago and as you can see NO-ONE’S writing can stand against the onslaught of money from all around the world when it comes to politics!

Land Grab by Foreign Mining Companies

Katniss is real, and she is an Apache.

While we were all looking the other way, sacred Apache land (that was also property of the American people as a whole) was sold to an Australian-British mining company that will soon have the rights to leave a 2-mile crater in the area. How did this happen? Senators John McCain and Jeff Flake slipped the deal in at the last minute at the bottom of a much-needed military defense spending bill. Apache have been camped out on the sacred site of Oak Flat ever since, and this young warrior, along with a handful of others, traveled to NYC all the way from Arizona to try to bring attention to her people’s plight.

Let’s help this story spread and let this real life rebel know that she is not alone, and that the American people won’t stand for this betrayal to us all.

https://sachemspeaks.wordpress.com/2014/12/10/land-grab-by-foreign-mining-companies/

Congress is set to approve the giveaway of 2,400 acres of National Forest lands, including the burial, ceremonial and medicinal lands of the San Carlos Apaches, to Resolution Copper, a subsidiary of British-Australian Rio Tinto Mining Corp., a company with a long history of environmental and human rights abuses in developing countries. The open-pit mine would come within 1,500 feet of Apache Leap, a dramatic cliff face where, according to legend, 75 Apache warriors leapt to their deaths rather than surrender to the U.S. Cavalry. Apaches are concerned it would affect nearby Oak Flat, which from time immemorial has been the site of ancient traditional ceremonies like their sunrise dances that mark the passage of young girls to womanhood. It is also the place where they go to collect their medicinal plants and the acorns they use for everything from ceremonial uses to cooking.

QUESTION?

From what I have been reading lately in the news,

our congress is between 85 and 90% Christian?

Well whatever it is?

How in their Gods name do they explain to Jesus Christ in the end of our time,

just how crooked they all have become?

Solar Golf Course

Just in case you might have missed this on my energy pages

https://climatechangenaturenodhuman.wordpress.com/2015/07/22/solar-golf-course/

July 22, 2015

A matter of course

Japan is building solar energy plants on abandoned golf courses and the idea is spreading!

http://qz.com/445330/japan-is-building-solar-energy-plants-on-abandoned-golf-courses-and-the-idea-is-spreading/

In Japan, country club memberships famously went for millions of dollars in the late 1980s.

Then, too many courses were built in 1990s and 2000s during a real estate boom.

Now the nation faces the question of what to do with its abandoned golf courses.

In late May, the company announced an even larger project that will begin construction next year in the Kagoshima prefecture on land that had been designated for a golf course more than 30 years ago but subsequently abandoned.

The 92-megawatt plant will include more than 340,000 solar modules and is expected to generate nearly 100,000 megawatt hours per year, or enough to power about 30,500 households when it goes operational in 2018.

But Kyocera, also responsible for the floating solar plants, faces competition on the (former) links.

Tokyo-based Pacifico Energy is building a 42-megawatt solar plant on an old golf course in the Okayama Prefecture, with help from GE Energy Financial Services.

It, too, will sell electricity to a local utility when it starts operation in the second quarter of next year, if all goes to plan.

And the companies are working on a 32-megawatt plant, also in Okayama, that should go live in the first quarter of next year.

Japan is not alone in pursuing the idea.

In the US, golf-course operators face declining interest in the sport and many have reacted by relaxing dress codes, adding family programs, and restructuring fees.

But, as in Japan, some courses will go out of business.

Plans to replace them with solar plants are already under way in New York, Minnesota, and other states.

Meanwhile, Japan’s energy strategy in the aftermath of Fukushima calls for roughly doubling the amount of renewable power sources in the country by 2030.

It is already building solar power plants that float on water.

Perhaps inevitably, then, the nation has turned to building solar plants on old golf courses.

Last week, Kyocera and its partners announced they had started construction on a 23-megawatt solar plant project located on an old golf course in the Kyoto prefecture.

Scheduled to go operational in September 2017, it will generate a little over 26,000 megawatt hours per year,

or

enough electricity to power approximately 8,100 typical local households.

The electricity will be sold to a local utility.

Riding a sea turtle is totally illegal

o8uuf_AuSt_69

If riding endangered species is in fact illegal (Sea turtles and Manatees for starters), what happened to those two girls and why did those boys jumping on a manatee get off with a little slap on the wrist?

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2327496/Facebook-video-shows-man-jumping-manatees-Florida.html

MELBOURNE BEACH — Pictures on social media show what appear to be girls riding a sea turtle on a Brevard County beach during the critical sea turtle nesting season.

One picture shows what appears to be a young girl looking as if she’s riding a large sea turtle, either sitting on or hovering over it with her hands in the air.

The other picture shows another girl, but her hands appeared to be pressed down on the turtle’s back. She was either sitting or leaning over its shell.

http://www.bradenton.com/2015/07/03/5880852_viral-photos-of-girls-riding-sea.html?rh=1

These pictures of what appear to be two girls riding a sea turtle, allegedly at Melbourne Beach, have sparked outrage on social media and prompted an investigation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It is illegal in Florida to harm or harass sea turtles.

Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin

Just another cheap product that should be avoided at all cost, especially if you have indigenous ancestry!

The Risks of Maltodextrin

Maltodextrin is an artificial sugar that has a mild, sweet taste. Maltodextrin is also known as a polysaccharide and manufacturers create this artificial sugar by applying acids or other enzymes to cornstarch.

Maltodextrin is a chain of repeating glucose molecules connected together.

You can use this artificial sugar as an additive and a sugar substitute.

Maltodextrin also has some purported risks associated with its use.

Alleged Health Risks

The consumption of Maltodextrin has similar side effects and health risks as most food additives.

These side effects include allergic reactions, unexplained weight gain, bloating and flatulence.

Specific allergic reactions associated with the use of Maltodextrin include rash, asthma, itching and difficulty breathing.

If you experience any allergic reaction or other side effect after consuming Maltodextrin, you should discontinue use and consult with a medical professional.

http://www.livestrong.com/article/502241-the-risks-of-maltodextrin/

The Bad:

Outside of the aforementioned time-frames, Maltodextrin is just as bad, sometimes worse, as having sugar.

Easily absorbed carbs like Maltodextrin and sugar get into your bloodstream fast.

If there is nothing for all that blood sugar to do

(i.e. repair muscle-tissue, give energy),

it will get stored as fat.

Contrast that with real complex carbs from whole grains, which are broken down and absorbed slowly, and Maltodextrin looks more and more like sugar.

The Ugly:

the ugly truth is that Maltodextrin is hard to avoid.

Even dieting companies overload their shakes and bars with the stuff because it’s cheap, they don’t have to label it as sugar, and it’s fatty texture can replace real fats

(both good and bad).

The moral of the story here is to stick to whole foods or whole-food derived products, like Shakeology.

Check your labels, and if it has Maltodextrin in the ingredients list, it better be a post-workout supplement.
