Social Media Induced Psychosis


Yes, social media can and does mentally affect people. With it reality-based interactions with other people become increasingly impersonal leading to a distancing phenomena.  Extreme cyber-bullying of every type runs rampant on social media sites because users neither feel nor have any sense of responsibility for their actions, as ambiguity rules the environments they have now mentally constructed. This virtual worlds or cocoon replaces the real world making it difficult for some individuals to translate experiences into real life situations and thus they become increasingly detached and socially impaired. Certainly, in this case, social media has a profoundly negative effect and outcome on the individual’s mental health.

Social media sites are littered with multiple layers and examples of unintended consequences to the nth degree, and a tsunami of adverse effects can, and are daily being fully documented. There is also no doubt that social media addiction does occur, and like any addiction it has a deteriorating and destructive effect, mentally and physically, on the individuals that have become dependent on it. Another reality-based problem occurs when virtual social media relationships begin to replace real ones and artificially generated social media experiences are viewed as being better than real life experiences. When this condition takes hold of the individual it can replace reality and be used as an effective means to escape from it.

Understanding what motivates the social media experiences people are having in the first place and the ease with which they can be manipulated, can aid in predicting whether they will benefit or not from the virtual relationships they have generated or allowed themselves to be influenced by. However, it is something the designers were likely well aware of.

There is abundant proof that reveals that with increased use of social media over time; just the same as with any type of addiction, life satisfaction exponentially decreases or will lead to extinction. So, as for social media having more positive benefits for society than negatives, the verdict for some is still out, but the real evidence is available for anyone whom searches for it outside of the virtual box.

Animal Disease Outbreak – H5N1 virus: Southeast Asia


Epidemic Hazard  – H5N1 – Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus

Asia  -  South Korea | Province of South Chungcheong, Cheonan
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location: N 36° 48.908, E 127° 6.834
Deaths: unknown
Infected: unknown

Biological Hazard in South Korea on Friday, 14 March, 2014 at 09:19 (09:19 AM) UTC.

A dog raised on a poultry farm in South Chungcheong Province was found to have developed antibodies for bird flu, meaning that it had been infected with the virus without showing clinical symptoms. This is Korea’s first case of cross-species transmission of the avian influenza virus, although the dog remained asymptomatic. The Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency said Thursday that it had found H5N1 influenza virus antibodies in the dog in question at the farm in Cheonan. The farm was quarantined in February after a bird flu outbreak. The finding is triggering new concerns about the health implications of infected animals. According to the World Health Organizations (WHO), though cross-species infection does happen, it is very rare. Similar cases have been reported in Southeast Asia and Europe since mid-2003 of the H5N1 virus infecting dogs, cats and pigs. In some experiments, infected cats showed severe symptoms that resulted in death. On its website, the WHO states that infected animals may have contracted the virus after ingesting poultry excreta. The risk of infection to humans is reduced as long as meat from infected animals is thoroughly cooked.

Tests are being conducted on the farm owners for possible transmission of the virus from the dog. There are records of human infection from poultry and other wild birds, but not from animals to humans. The WHO stated that more than 50 countries around the world have experienced outbreaks of H5N1 in poultry and wild birds since 2003. And more than 10 countries have reported human H5N1 infection. Meanwhile, the Seoul Metropolitan Government raised its alert level for bird flu in the metropolitan region, following the recent discovery of the H5N8 virus in the body of a wild goose was highly infectious. The goose was found dead in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province. Authorities have banned the transportation of domesticated poultry within a 10 kilometers radius. Seoul Zoo in Gwacheon will stay closed until the outbreak subsides. A zoo at Everland Resort in Yongin, south of Seoul, also closed its wild bird section. Only Gangwon Province and Jeju Island have not reported cases of avian influenza. The rapid outbreak of the virus in the span of three months has hit poultry farmers hard. More than 10 million birds have been culled so far, which will cause problems in the supply chain if demand for chicken and duck begins to pick up. Unlike chicken, most of the country’s duck meat is imported from France, the U.S. and Taiwan.


Epidemic Hazard  – H5N1 – Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus

Asia  -  North Korea | Country wide, Multiple areas
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location: N 39° 29.327, E 126° 42.485
Deaths: numerous
Infected: unknown

Complex Emergency in North Korea on Wednesday, 09 April, 2014 at 11:26 (11:26 AM) UTC.

North Korea has been fighting an outbreak of bird flu since last month, culling tens of thousands of poultry so far. A chicken farm in the capital reported signs of H5N1 virus on March 21 and the virus has now spread to other poultry farms, Xinhua news agency reported citing the KCNA official news agency. “(We) are suffering from extensive economic damage as tens of thousands (of poultry) have either fallen dead or been culled,” Agriculture Ministry director Ri Kyung Kun was quoted as saying. As part of efforts to control the virus, authorities have set up an emergency quarantine commission and declared an emergency prevention situation across the country. An outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) was confirmed in cows in Kangwon Province near the border on March 14. Authorities said in February that an FMD outbreak at a pig farm in a Pyongyang suburb led to a cull of thousands of pigs.


Epidemic Hazard  – H5N1 – Highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (new subtype)

Asia  -  Vietnam | Mekong Delta Region, City of Can Tho
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location: N 10° 1.910, E 105° 47.028
Deaths: numerous
Infected: ~ 10,400

Biological Hazard in Vietnam on Friday, 14 March, 2014 at 10:00 (10:00 AM) UTC.

The Department of Agriculture and Rural Development of the Mekong Delta City of Can Tho reported on March 13 that a new subtype of H5N1 avian influenza virus, 2.3.2.1C, has been discovered in some outbreaks in the locality. Anti-bird flu efforts, therefore, are being challenged because vaccination is not effective for the new subtype, Nguyen Khai Dang, Deputy Director of the Department told a meeting with the Ho Chi Minh City Pasteur Institute. Previously, only H5N1 virus subtype 1.1 was found in the city’s affected fowls. The department warned that bird flu could spread far and wide amidst the harvest season, the time when breeders often let their ducks seek food on rice fields. The department confirmed that the H7N9, H10N8 and H6N1 strands have yet been found in the locality. It continues vaccinating poultry against H5N1 while selecting suitable vaccines to beat the new bird flu subtype and keeping an eye on the development of new poultry, especially in the areas once hit by the virus and vulnerable ones. According to the Can Tho Veterinary Department, bird flu caused 14 outbreaks in seven communes with nearly 10,400 infected fowls.

Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic fever (CCHF): Istanbul, Turkey


Epidemic Hazard  – Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic fever (CCHF)

Asia -  Turkey | Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality, Istanbul
Bio-hazard Level: 4/4 Hazardous
Location: N 41° 0.316, E 28° 58.618
Deaths: 1
Infected: unknown

Biological Hazard in Turkey on Thursday, 17 April, 2014 at 04:12 (04:12 AM) UTC.

The Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus was found in the person’s blood who died on Sunday in Turkey’s Istanbul. According to information given to AA correspondent, 56 aged Mehmet Ali Bostancioglu, who ranches in Kavak village of Boyabat district, removed ticks on his bovine animal on April 4. On the following day, he was given serum after he went to hospital with complaints of weakness and vomit. Bostancioglu went to a hospital again in Kastamonu city, then he was sent to Istanbul with suspected the CCHF. However, he lost his life despite all efforts. Bostancioglu’s blood samples were sent to a laboratory and found the CCHF virus in it. Sinop Public Health Director Dr. Tahsin Gökhan Telatar told AA that the blood samples test results show us that Bostancioglu died due to the CCHF.

Current seismic signal at Ubinas (IGP)

Volcano Eruption in Peru on Thursday, 17 April, 2014 at 03:28 (03:28 AM) UTC.

The Scientific Permanent Monitoring Committee and the Peruvian have declared Ubinas volcano on orange alert, meaning that local communities have to be evacuated. The volcano, which has been active again since September last year, erupted March 31, giving off ash for one thousand meters. The 20 families living in Querapi were temporarily evacuated shortly after the eruption, but are yet to be permanently relocated to Pampas de Hawái. As well as residents of Querapi, people living in Tonohaya, also in Moquegua, and San Juan de Tarucani, Arequipa, also need to be evacuated. Civil Defense chief, Miguel Alayza said that they were waiting for the alert to go from yellow to the more serious orange before they could proceed. Regional president of Moquegua, Martín Vizcarra said that the volcanic activity would affect five thousand people in that area, while in San Juan de Tarucani, Arequipa, 637 families would be affected, according to El Comercio. Ubinas volcano is considered to be the most active volcano of Peru. Eruptions have been reported since 1550.

Changing the Nation’s Locus of Control by Force


More “Ammunition” for Obama Administration

via TownHall

Increasingly, Americans fear their government. They fear its power, its might and its ability to ruin their lives.

The recent showdown in Nevada between federal agents and a cattle rancher and a group of his supporters is a symbol of the kind of abuse of power and executive sleight-of-hand that are becoming the hallmark of the Obama administration. (The federal agents in Nevada even wore brown shirts.) And this is just one of many unnerving examples of increasingly bold government intrusion.

We all know the IRS targeted conservative groups. When we learn of IRS offices covered with pro-Obama campaign paraphernalia, and of the office of a high-ranking Democrat likely coordinating attacks on the witnesses in a congressional investigation, there’s little doubt of what’s going on. Lois Lerner is living proof of a likely cover-up. But a national media riddled with Obama sympathizers continue to cover the matter with tepid interest

The same goes for Benghazi. The administration’s far-fetched claim that a rogue video on YouTube triggered the vicious attack on Americans there has proved to be a blatant lie. No sufficient answer was ever provided as to how soon and how much the president or his top aides knew about this being an organized terrorist attack. This was a pre-reelection cover-up, pure and simple.

And it should frighten us all that soon after the attack on the American embassy, the man responsible for the video that became the scapegoat for Benghazi was dragged off to jail on unrelated charges.

Recently a CBS News reporter who left the network said that many reporters covering this White House avoid pursuing potentially controversial issues. She attributed this partly to an unacknowledged desire to protect a president who shares with much media a liberal governing philosophy, and partly to a chilling effect on news that is the product of a hardball administration that punishes unfriendly reporters.

A majority of the nation is now wondering just how hard their own government is working to intimidate or bully not just the media but individual Americans as well. A growing percentage of the public believes their government spies on them, tracks their day-to-day activities and could destroy them financially. Many say they are afraid to outwardly express their views about President Obama or the government.

From Obamacare and endless executive orders, to intimidation by federal bureaucrats, this White House has moved quickly and in an unabashed manner to implement its collectivist domestic social policies. It has increased government crackdowns on citizens in the U.S., while deliberately weakening our military and diplomatic strength abroad.

And when anyone challenges the government’s ham-fisted ways, they get threats in return.

Few doubt what Attorney General Eric Holder meant recently when he angrily responded to pointed questions from Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas before the House Judiciary Committee. At one point Holder said, “You don’t want to go there, Buddy. You don’t want to go there, OK?” Was this a threat from the nation’s “chief cop”?

Holder reflects an entire administration that is filled with arrogant bullies who are constantly spoiling for a fight.

Many of us have ignored media stories about various federal or local government agencies recently receiving huge amounts of ammunition or gear that would most likely be used to control large crowds made up of so-called “angry mobs.” Then came the reports about the folks in Nevada who were threatened with brute force by agents seeking to round up a rancher’s cattle they say were trespassing on federal land.

In past years such stories of procurement of weapons or ammunition by government bureaucracies would be written off as an effort to find conspiracies where none existed. But when even the Postal Service is stocking up on bullets, one has to wonder.

And when Americans learn that powerful Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s son might have a vested interest in that very same land at issue in Nevada, it only adds to their belief that their government is one in which the politically elite take what they want, and with a newfound blatant use of force.

Sadly, the Obama years are swiftly becoming ones not of promised government transparency and opportunity for all, but instead a time of obfuscation, threats, class warfare and fear of authority. His administration’s actions increasingly have taken on the muted attributes of governments, indeed regimes, from ugly times in post-World War I history.

But we don’t want to go there, do we, Buddy?

When someone shows you who and what they are, believe them…

#3 “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in my own country.”

#4 “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”

#5 “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.

#7 “we will encourage more Americans to study in Muslim communities

#8 “These rituals remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam’s role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance, and the dignity of all human beings.”

#9 “America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

#10 “I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam.”

#11 “Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism – it is an important part of promoting peace.”

#12 “So I have known Islam on three continents before coming to the region where it was first revealed”

#13 “In ancient times and in our times, Muslim communities have been at the forefront of innovation and education.”

#14 “Throughout history, Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality.”

#15 “Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality

#16 “The Holy Koran tells us, ‘O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.’”

#17 “I look forward to hosting an Iftar dinner celebrating Ramadan here at the White House later this week, and wish you a blessed month.”

20 Quotes By Barack Obama About Christianity and the Bible

#1 “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”

#2 “We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

#3 “Which passages of scripture should guide our public policy?  Should we go with Leviticus, which suggests slavery is OK and that eating shellfish is an abomination?  Or we could go with Deuteronomy, which suggests stoning your child if he strays from the faith?”

#4 “Even those who claim the Bible’s inerrancy make distinctions between Scriptural edicts, sensing that some passages – the Ten Commandments, say, or a belief in Christ’s divinity – are central to Christian faith, while others are more culturally specific and may be modified to accommodate modern life.”

#5 “The American people intuitively understand this, which is why the majority of Catholics practice birth control and some of those opposed to gay marriage nevertheless are opposed to a Constitutional amendment to ban it. Religious leadership need not accept such wisdom in counseling their flocks, but they should recognize this wisdom in their politics.”

#6 From Obama’s book, The Audacity of Hope: “I am not willing to have the state deny American citizens a civil union that confers equivalent rights on such basic matters as hospital visitation or health insurance coverage simply because the people they love are of the same sex—nor am I willing to accept a reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the Mount.”

#7 Obama’s response when asked what his definition of sin is: “Being out of alignment with my values.”

#8 “If all it took was someone proclaiming I believe Jesus Christ and that he died for my sins, and that was all there was to it, people wouldn’t have to keep coming to church, would they.”

#9 “This is something that I’m sure I’d have serious debates with my fellow Christians about. I think that the difficult thing about any religion, including Christianity, is that at some level there is a call to evangelize and prostelytize. There’s the belief, certainly in some quarters, that people haven’t embraced Jesus Christ as their personal savior that they’re going to hell.”

#10 “I find it hard to believe that my God would consign four-fifths of the world to hell.  I can’t imagine that my God would allow some little Hindu kid in India who never interacts with the Christian faith to somehow burn for all eternity.  That’s just not part of my religious makeup.”

#11 “I don’t presume to have knowledge of what happens after I die. But I feel very strongly that whether the reward is in the here and now or in the hereafter, the aligning myself to my faith and my values is a good thing.”

#12 “I’ve said this before, and I know this raises questions in the minds of some evangelicals. I do not believe that my mother, who never formally embraced Christianity as far as I know … I do not believe she went to hell.”

#13 Those opposed to abortion cannot simply invoke God’s will–they have to explain why abortion violates some principle that is accessible to people of all faiths.”

#14 On his support for civil unions for gay couples: “If people find that controversial then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount.”

#15 “You got into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton Administration, and the Bush Administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not. And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

#16 “In our household, the Bible, the Koran and the Bhagavad Gita sat on the shelf alongside books of Greek and Norse and African mythology”

#17 “On Easter or Christmas Day, my mother might drag me to church, just as she dragged me to the Buddhist temple, the Chinese New Year celebration, the Shinto shrine, and ancient Hawaiian burial sites.”

#18 “We have Jews, Muslims, Hindus, atheists, agnostics, Buddhists, and their own path to grace is one that we have to revere and respect as much as our own”

#19 “All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear; when the Holy Land of the three great faiths is the place of peace that God intended it to be; when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra — (applause) — as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed, peace be upon them, joined in prayer.  (Applause.)”

#20 “I believe that there are many paths to the same place, and that is a belief that there is a higher power, a belief that we are connected as a people.”

Taqqiya is considered the Islamic art of deception used to soften the hearts of the unbelievers (infidels). However, in this case, it appears political ambitions have trumped any religious values or morals as reflected in the showing of complete contempt for any of it, all while manipulating its illusion as a source to solely gain a self-centered personal advantage. It doesn’t require very much discernment at all, to recognize it for what it truly is.
