Another Expert Agrees With Dark Comet Theory

February 21, 2013 – 11:31 am | No Comment

Astronomer David Asher (from Armagh University) has agreed with Bill Napier and Janaki Wickramasinghe (Cardiff University) that “dark comets” are real and dangerous.
The following quotes are from a paper by Napier and Asher published in Astronomy & Geophysics.

We know that about one bright comet (of absolute magnitude as bright as 7, comparable to Halley’s Comet) arrives in the visibility zone (perihelion q<5AU, say) each year from the Oort cloud. It seems to be securely established that ~1–2% of these are captured into Halleytype (HT) orbits. The dynamical lifetime of a body in such an orbit can be estimated, from which the expected number of HT comets is perhaps ~3000. The actual number of active HT comets is ~25. This discrepancy of at least two powers of 10 in the expected impact rate from comets as deduced from this theoretical argument on the one hand, and observations on the other, is …

CRE Superbug in the USA

CRE Superbug in the USA

Carbapenem-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) is the new concern. Carbapenem is an antibiotic, that is losing its powers rapidly, and there is no alternative yet:
Carbapenems are one of the antibiotics of last resort for many bacterial infections, such as Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Klebsiella pneumoniae. Recently, alarm has been raised over the spread of drug resistance to carbapenem antibiotics among these coliforms, due to production of an enzyme named NDM-1. There are currently no new antibiotics in the pipeline to combat bacteria resistant to carbapenems, and worldwide spread of the resistance gene is considered a potential nightmare scenario.
Enterobacteriaceae are a family of bacteria. The new resistant strain can cause Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae, especially in the elderly. This is a sad example of how antibiotics are no longer effective in saving lives:
A dangerous drug-resistant bacterium has spread to patients in Southern California, according to a study by Los Angeles County public health officials.

Cerne Abbas Giant / Antibiotics / Skull Sculpting

Cerne Abbas Giant / Antibiotics / Skull Sculpting

The wonderful Cerne Abbas Giant in Dorset, England is somehow still succeeding in his mission. The 180ft ancient chalk hill figure looks like a caveman with a club, but the key imagery is his erect penis, which of course proves that the site was used for fertility rituals, according to experts. Well, if more proof was needed, even without many rituals on the hill, local women are having more babies than anywhere else in Britain!
Lancet Infectious Diseases has reported that within a couple of generations we could well be without the modern marvels of antibiotics:
Bacteria are great survivors. The biggest threat now, experts believe, is from multi-drug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, such as NDM 1-producing enterobacteriaceae and an enzyme called KPC which has spread in the US (and in Israel and Greece) which also gives bacteria resistance to the carbapenems, the most powerful group of antibiotics we (once) had.

Could SuperBugs Kill Us All?

While most 2012ers concentrate on the big things (supernova, pole shift, everyone shifts to the nth dimension), perhaps a microscopic bug could be the cause of our demise?
Doc­tors are run­ning out of treat­ments for trau­ma vic­tims and crit­ic­ally ill pa­tients be­cause of in­fec­tions from drug re­sist­ant mi­crobes – even af­ter re­sort­ing to medicines thrown out 20 years ago be­cause of se­vere side ef­fects, sci­en­tists are re­port­ing.
Soon most, if not all, antibiotics will be ineffective, which is a shame, because modern western medicine depends on them a whole lot.
Unfortunately, our use of antibiotics to cause cattle to gain weight, has back-fired on us. Gordon Gecko was wrong. Greed is not good.
