Phoenix sends microscopic views of Martian soil

Phoenix Delivers Soil Sample to Microscope

06.13.08 -- New observations from NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander provide the most magnified view ever seen of Martian soil, showing particles clumping together even at the smallest visible scale.

Three zoomed-in portions are shown with an image of Martian soil particles taken by the Optical Microscope on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander. .....Click picture to enlarge

The left zoom box shows a composite particle. The top of the particle has a green tinge, possibly indicating olivine. The bottom of the particle has been reimaged at a different focus position in black and white (middle zoom box), showing that this is a clump of finer particles.

The right zoom box shows a rounded, glassy particle, similar to those which have also been seen in an earlier sample of airfall dust collected on a surface exposed during landing.

The shadows at the bottom of image are of the beams of the Atomic Force Microscope.

The microscope took this image during Phoenix's Sol 17 (June 11, 2008), or the 13th Martian day after landing. The scale bar is 1 millimeter (0.04 inch).

Fair & Balanced News on the Fringes of the Blogosphere

Well, one of my pet peeves is corporate media, especially when it isn't fair
and balanced news. Doug Brooks, the president of the IPOA, commented on my previous article
(A practical NWO guide for global control) and pointed out that Frontline interviewed him but didn't include it in their final version.

In all fairness to the IPOA (International Peace Operations Association), I will post this Frontlines interview with Doug Brooks, that wasn't included in their "Private Warriers" presentation, where he confronts many of the key issues they raise in the video. I may be an insignifigant voice in the fringes of the blogasphere but as a truth seeker I believe that all sides of the story should be heard...G:

And now for the rest of the story.

A practical NWO guide for global control

A Guide for the New World Order

The International Peace Operations Association


The International Peace Operations Association (IPOA) is a non-governmental trade and lobbying association representing the "peace and stability industry," sometimes referred to as private military companies (PMCs) or derogatorily by critics as mercenaries ignoring the international legal definition as well as the actual role and variety of companies. The IPOA is located in Washington DC, USA, and was founded in April 2001 by Doug Brooks, who currently serves as the association's president. The IPOA currently represents 42 companies which are required to pay dues and submit delegates to various committees within the IPOA. David Hammond, a lawyer who represents many PMCs in court, is the chairman of the general counsel committee. The IPOA also publishes The Journal of International Peace Operations.

According to an article by Corpwatch, the IPOA's aim is to "reposition the industry as for-profit providers of armed men as peace keepers. " The association's stated mission is "to promote high operational and ethical standards of firms active in the Peace and Stability Industry; to engage in a constructive dialogue with policy-makers about the growing and positive contribution of these firms to the enhancement of international peace, development, and human security; and to inform the concerned public about the activities and role of the industry." The IPOA's Code of Conduct "seeks to ensure the ethical standards of International Peace Operations Association member companies operating in conflict and post-conflict environments so that they may contribute their valuable services for the benefit of international peace and human security.".

The Private Side of War

As the Army struggles to meet recruitment numbers, FRONTLINE takes a hard look at private contractors servicing U.S. military supply lines, running U.S. military bases, and protecting U.S. diplomats and generals. Between the logistics giant Halliburton and a myriad of armed security companies, private military contractors comprise the second largest "force" in Iraq, far outnumbering all non-U.S. forces combined. There are as many as 100,000 civilian contractors and approximately 20,000 private security forces.

Presidential Prayer Team was promoted by Bu$hco

Well I've always thought that Source Watch contained reliable information, but being a Wiki based format is controlled by the editors. The Presidential Prayer Team was obviously not an urban legend,as they claim, but formed by the Bu$h administration. They then claim the the Presidential Prayer Team is not sponsored by the Office of President of the United States or the federal government, but is a private foundation whose promotion is being handled by The Envoy Group, a self-described "new kind of Christian advertising agency". Well, the problem with this is that The Envoy Group is involved with Bu$co, and the Christian ad agency just a convenient sideline. I won't bother to attempt an expanation for all of this, because it is a typical Neocon operation. If you follow the links I believe that you will agree that there was way more Bu$hite going on immediately after the WTC disaster than we'll ever know...G:

Presidential Prayer Team

From SourceWatch

The Presidential Prayer Team (PPT) describes itself as an "independent, nonprofit organization" with the "singular purpose ... to encourage Americans to pray daily for the President." Membership in the PPT is fee- and obligation-free.

In response to the Urban Legend that President George W. Bush was behind the formation of the Presidential Prayer Team , responded: "After the events of September 11, 2001 President Bush declared Friday, September 14, a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance, and he has been open in asking White House guests to join him in prayer. He has not, however,
called for the creation of a 'Presidential Prayer Team', but an organization with that title operates a web site which many of our readers were misled into believing had government endorsement and approval for a variety of reasons:

* "A title and logo designed to imitate the name and official seal of a government agency.
* "Messages inviting prospective members to join sent from 'The Office of the Presidential Prayer Team' with a subject line of 'The President of the United States needs you!'
* "The lack of any information on the site informing visitors that the organization is not sponsored or funded by the President or any agency of the federal government.

* "The Presidential Prayer Team is not sponsored by the Office of President of the United States or the federal government; it is a private foundation whose promotion is being handled by The Envoy Group, a self-described 'new kind of Christian advertising agency.'"

As of October 14, 2001, "the Presidential Prayer Team placed a disclaimer on its site stating that it 'is an independent, nonprofit, non-partisan effort designed to encourage a national outpouring of daily prayer for the President' and that it 'was not formed by an agency of the government, nor does it receive funding from the government."

David Bolthouse & the Presidential Prayer Team

David Bolthouse of The Envoy Group, who responded to the query about the Presidential Prayer Team, is President and Partner with Karl Schaller, Senior Vice President/Partner. Other Principals of the Envoy Group are Randy Cantrell, Vice President, Corporate Sponsorships & Capital Campaigns; Lisa Chastain, Vice President, Promotions and Publicity; Jeff Lane, Art Director; Meagan Gillan, Copy Editor and Manager; Deborah Coult,

"....David served as the Development Director of a major nonprofit Christian radio network and later took a position with a leading Christian agency in Seattle, where he managed fundraising and marketing for such national accounts as Focus on the Family, Tyndale House Publishing, World Concern, and David C. Cook Publishing. In 1993, he founded The Envoy Group, Inc. (previously named DirectMedia Communications)....

20 Years Serving Ministries and Publishers

The Envoy Group closed its doors to consulting and agency work in 2005, choosing instead to put our knowledge to work marketing our own projects to the Christian community under the banners of SurfVantage, EnvoyInteractive andPraise Store.
We consider it an honor and privilege to have served so many quality organizations and businesses throughout theyears.


David Bolthouse
Founder and CEO

I've gotta ask...does this look like a "new kind of Christian advertising agency"?

The Hillary as "Commander in Chief " Fiasco

Well, in case you were wondering about Hillary as "Commander in Chief", the concept has been around for a while, as shown by the show premiered on ABC in September 2005. It didn't last long though and ended in early 2006. A sad commentary on our controlled media that shows ABC and Disney were testing out the TV audience two years before the primaries.

So today we see Hillary still spinning the "Commander in Chief" concept while telling the people what she will do for them. She doesn't seem to be operating in the here and now, and Obama has left her in the dust by including "We The People" in the role of what will be done in his administration. A giant step toward change that has gone
unnoticed by her advisers.

Hillary’s Show: Commander in Chief gets the Axe!

Well, it looks like America has rejected the new ABC show Commander in Chief. I have to admit I’ve never seen the show but it was obvious it was an attempt to get the population accustomed to a female President. The reason I feel confident to make that statement is due to the show having Hillary’s fingerprints all over it.
ABC insiders denied there’s any connection between the Hillary Campaign and the series. But look who was one of the main writers in the show, turns out to be Steve Cohen who served as the then first lady’s deputy communications director throughout the 1990’s!

NIST studies show that GM molecules can transfer to higher animals.

Research Measures Movement of Nanomaterials in Simple Model Food Chain

New research* shows that while engineered nanomaterials can be transferred up the lowest levels of the food chain from single celled organisms to higher multicelled ones, the amount transferred was relatively low and there was no evidence of the nanomaterials concentrating in the higher level organisms. The preliminary results observed by researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) suggest that the particular nanomaterials studied may not accumulate in invertebrate food chains.

The same properties that make engineered nanoparticles attractive for numerous applications—biological and environmental stability, small size, solubility in aqueous solutions and lack of toxicity to whole organisms—also raise concerns about their long-term impact on the environment. NIST researchers wanted to determine if nanoparticles could be passed up a model food chain and if so, did the transfer lead to a significant amount of bioaccumulation (the increase in concentration of a substance in an organism over time) and biomagnification (the progressive buildup of a substance in a predator organism after ingesting contaminated prey).

In their study, the NIST team investigated the dietary accumulation, elimination and toxicity of two types of fluorescent quantum dots using a simple, laboratory-based food chain with two microscopic aquatic organisms—Tetrahymena pyriformis, a single-celled ciliate protozoan, and the rotifer Brachionus calyciflorus that preys on it. The process of a material crossing different levels of a food chain from prey to predator is called “trophic transfer.”
