When I was a young teen, I used to listen to radio Moscow and they miffed me off on a regular basis with all of their lies.... today, I see things differently, sure they were full of propaganda, but a lot of it was also the truth.

Art Bell is back, you can listen to his Dark Matter radio talk show via the internet every week day night starting at 9 PM PST. He seems to have toned down the gloom and doom fear factor a lot from what he used to do.

Yes I remember listening to radio Moscow quite a few times on SW long ago, it was full of BS propaganda, now I listen to a lot of RT Global, I don't see much propaganda there.

Art has changed a little, I hope he will get Maj. Ed Dames on the show, the last time he was on the air with George Noory he said he was retiring, but he was a master of doom and gloom. I remember his wife is also from the Ukraine, one of the news stations I watch sometimes is Ukraine Today, there is an app for the iPad.

For news I don't watch anything from the U.S. Anymore, except radio of course, I watch English language news channels from 8 or 9 countries. You get a much better idea of what's going on in the rest of the world, and they don't all have the same point of view, there's too much that isn't reported here. Alan
I had heard that Bell had made a few programs but did not know he was on all the time. That is great. I really appreciate the info. My wife and I are on the same wavelength as you with respect to finding out what is really going on. It is the only way we understood that the US was responsible for what has transpired in Ukraine and that the Putin/Russia bashing makes absolutely no sense and is NOT in the best interest of Americans. Rivalry is one thing, but what our government is doing is dangerous and bringing us closer to war. In the hope of trying to actually do something, I was thinking of creating a Putin/Medvedev Lavrov for State in 2016 website. Of course they can't run for office. However, Americans have no idea that all of them are true Statesman unlike the idiot politicians we have. We have not had a Statesman since Harriman. Maybe Americans would do something to stop the madness in foreign policy.

Ed Dames...Remote Viewing! I have not heard that name for a time! Back around 92 I got to study biofeedback at Mennigers with people who trained with the Greens. I got to see their famous "copper room" essentially a Faraday cage in which they did their paranormal experiments. The alpha theta state is a state where paranormal activity can occur. I now because I was trained to get there, teach people how to get there, and have experienced some myself.

It's hardly just our idiot politicians that are the problem, it's those who control them, the ones who are really running things, mainly bankers, defense contractors, and big pharma. They want continuous war and are getting far too reckless in maintaining it.

Re: Delete now.

Yea, I like it. Let me add more, as far as Russia goes, I have more faith in their government, as corrupt as it is, than our own! I see far too much bashing going on in our media than there should be, from that I suspect many of the anti Putin or Russia articles are bought and paid for, not by the advertisers, but others who back door fund the writers. Such sheep we are to be influenced by the main stream media so easily, but I see the day coming where the majority won't be influenced so easily by them, if it isn't already here.

I just hope our stupid "best that money can buy" politicians don't start a war with Russia.

Remember Amber Lyon about 3 years ago who left CNN because they were taking payments from foreign governments to report or to not report certain stories, or to not report anything negative about a country or a royal family. I bet there is plenty of this going on with American media. Some of the advertising by some companies is also payoff money.

With the military buildup and recent NATO exercises right on their border, and all the sanctions, it does seem excessive and a provocation, and then we see the reports about their bombers flying off our coast and the coast of NATO countries in Europe, well that is to be expected, you can't expect them to do nothing.

Really though I am much more worried about what will grow out of the Middle East.

Re: Open discussion anything goes

Makes me wonder if my Canadian government is up to anything fishy. Bah, we're so irrelevant that it wouldn't even matter all that much anyways
And since this is an open discussion, where would you guys say is a good safe makeshift place to keep a diode I just harvested from a DVDRW sled? Not worth starting a thread over. I have it in a plastic case filled with that generic soft black foam, with the diode resting in a cutout. Is this alright for the time being or is there dust particles that gets released by that foam I should be concerned over? Thx m80s

Re: Open discussion anything goes

Is it anti-static foam? If not, no. maybe just wrap it in Mylar, or aluminum? What say you all? I don't see a problem with dust very much, unless it is an open uncanned diode.

Remember your government is a NATO member, they will participate in the mayhem when their assistance is requested.

You should be fine as long as it's not one of those open can reds, it would be better if it was first placed in an anti static bag, but it will be ok, just check for dust on the window when you get around to using it.

Re: Delete now.

Thanks men. Got some left over anti-static plastic bags, will keep safe. It's strange, it looks like a closed can (?) diode, it has that little rounded cap on it. But there's no window, and inside I can see what looks exactly like an open can diode hiding in there. I still haven't inspected a closed can (?) diode in person yet, so I dunno if this is out of the norm.
