Iceland is the land of active volcanoes and unexpected decisions. During the crisis in 2008 the government let its banks collapse instead of bailing them out, as they proved too big to save. The next challenge is to bring unemployment rate to 2 percent.

Iceland, whose stock market after the 2008 financial crisis plunged 90 percent while unemployment rose ninefold, has chosen a risky crisis-management policy as a way-out. After shrinking by over 10 percent during 2009-2010, Iceland’s GDP began to recover.

During the worst financial crisis in six decades, successive Icelandic governments forced banks to write off mortgage debts to help households, and while the euro area struggles with record unemployment rate (with over 25 percent in Greece and Spain), Iceland has a reason to celebrate, with joblessness in December as low as 4.5 percent, according to Statistics Iceland. The number of persons in the labor force in the fourth quarter last year was 184,600, which corresponds to an activity rate of 80.7 percent.

The prime minister recently announced that the next big challenge for the small island nation with the population of 325,620 is to see unemployment going to under 2 percent, because, as Sigmundur D. Gunnlaugsson told Bloomberg in January, “Icelanders aren’t accustomed to unemployment.”

At 85 percent, Iceland’s labor-market is the highest in Europe and one of the highest in the world. In December alone, 172 new private limited companies were registered in the island, compared with 147 in December 2012. The largest number of new registrations was in financial and insurance activities. In 2013, 1,938 new private limited companies were registered, which is a 10.6 percent increase compared with 2012.

Can You Hear The Voice Of Your Soul?

WakeUpWorld  January 30 2014

morningSunAs children, we are all born with healthy souls, but sometimes life does a number on us. The traumas of childhood, the wounds of coming of age, the sacrifices we make for our careers and our families, the losses that eat away at our joy, and the fears we inherit from an anxious, panicked culture take their toll, and if you’re like many of us, by the time you reach adulthood, you’ve lost touch with the vital, healthy soul that still thrives and radiates within every single of one of us.

This was certainly true for me. After a happy childhood, my soul was still very alive and vital through my teen years, but my medical education changed all that. After a decade of difficult, sometimes abusive medical education, I felt disconnected from my soul. I know it never left me- souls never do– but at the time, I found it hard to let my soul guide my life. After ten more years working within a system that left me feeling like I was selling my soul for the job security and financial stability my career offered, I found myself coming home from work at the end of every day feeling like I had so much more to give my patients, but the system was keeping me from serving in the way my soul yearned to serve. What resulted was illness, depression, chronic anxiety, insomnia, divorce, and a feeling of disconnection from the calling that drew me to medicine in the first place.

The Masks We Wear

On the outside, it looked like I had the perfect life. Nobody guessed that my soul was getting buried deeper and deeper. I was so worried people could see how dark I had gotten without the light of my soul shining through unimpeded that I tried even harder to cover the darkness with a mask of perfection. The more worried I got that I would somehow blow my cover, the more pressure I put upon myself to keep the masks in place.

But those masks only furthered my disconnection from my soul. I had the Doctor Mask, which led me to climb up onto a pedestal and pretend to know it all. Then I had the Artist Mask, where I pretended to be deep and brooding and mysterious. And then there was the Mommy Mask and the Perfect Wife Mask, which led me to feel the pressure of baking the perfect cupcake or always wearing sexy lingerie in bed.

Engineering The Rollout Of Geoengineering

Activist Post  January 30 2014

geoengineeringRolloutThe systematic pre-planned rollout of geoengineering and aerosol spraying of our skies is now in full swing. This attempt to roll chemtrails out to the general public was predicted and anticipated by many in the movement for years, but now we are seeing the actual implementation of the agenda. Chemical spraying nationwide has been relentless for years.

All of humanity has been watching planes dropping their sustained chemical trails which artificially start and stop whenever chemical barrels are empty or when perhaps the person or system controlling the release of these chemicals from the planes needs to. All of this has been happening in broad daylight. We’ve watched as these unmarked planes with transponders in the off position sneak around the skies (go to flightaware.com and confirm this for yourself). These same non-passenger planes are known to loop around and fly back in the same path previously traveled.

Whistleblowers have come out and confirmed many segments of these mass operations. I have personally interviewed someone who had regular access to a large military Air Force base and confirmed the spraying of the “white stuff”. Others have taken up to sampling soil, water and air, all which have turned up exponentially high levels of improbable metals, and the accompanying pH increases that come with that. Many of the metals found just happen to match the metals required in the same weather modification patents issued to U.S. defense contractors. All of these metal elements are incompatible with life. All have deleterious effects on all of nature, its life forms and its life cycles. All of these realities ignored by the U.S. government, its mouthpiece politicians and the mouthpiece geoengineers.

False Flag City

ZenGardner  January 29 2014

puppetOnStringHave you ever wondered how they can pull off these massive staged media driven stunts and so few seem to notice what’s really going on? Look at the Boston bombing or Sandy Hook. There are more inconsistencies than you can name, yet nothing contrary to the official narrative is allowed to be introduced into the news stream.

Unless of course it’s derogatory of anyone challenging the party line.

They’ll usually give a token acknowledgement of the “other side” and then move on so people figure that was covered and accounted for.

It’s almost alchemical how they’re able to utilize staged high impact news events, shove across their pre-planned “solutions” that need immediate, unthinking and unsubstantiated action, and then dissolve the emotionally driven issue with new distractions before there’s time to even find out what really happened.

Hit, Hype and Run

It virtually doesn’t matter what really happens anymore. It’s the original shock value of the staged event, real or imaginary, and the complicit presstitutes that make the intended impression that matters. This is all.

You have to hand it to them in their warfare techniques: How do you not reel at the thought of dozens of very young innocent children being massacred in a school? It’s a horrific thought.

It’s all about shock value.

It’s the same with 9/11. Hit the highest profile buildings in the world, mix in some dramatic long prepared back story of turbaned brown people in caves attacking American soil, and run and re-run these images and the resultant horror, screams, death and tragedy and you’ve got yourself an emotional tidal wave to ride straight into the Middle East and beyond, and the beginning of an Orwellian crack down on the supposed targeted populace the likes of which the world has never seen.

Talk about absurd. And as the psychically accosted public is still reeling from the impact, before they know it laws are passing and wars are being waged.

The Gulf of Tonkin incident that started the Vietnam conflagration never happened we now know and has been proven by FOIA documents. Does that stick in anyone’s mind? The Martin Luther King assassination was proven in public court to have been carried out by the CIA, and who remembers that? Or even knows it? All after we were all taken to the cleaners with the mainstream story of another staged mass trauma, mimicking the JFK assassination scenario.

Flashback: 9/11 And The Gold In The NY Federal Reserve

Jon Rappoport January 30, 2014

goldBullionWith reports that Germany can’t get back much of its gold stored in the NY Federal Reserve, I remembered what I was writing just after 9/11.

Here are a few quotes. Most are from my posts on 9/11 and 9/12, 2001:

“Still no word on the condition of the NY Federal Reserve Bank, which is 2.5 blocks away from the destroyed WTC. This bank, underground, holds $75 billion in gold from [abut five] dozen countries.”

“CNN has a large map posted today, which shows the condition of a number of buildings by name in the area, but, curiously, the NY Fed Reserve is not one of them.”

Turmeric Extract Trumps Drugs For Rheumatoid Arthritis

NaturalSociety  January 28 2014

turmericAs a copious amount of studies would suggest, the spice turmeric is one of the most healing foods in existence. From eradicating cancer cells to dulling pain, it has a wide range of health benefits. One of the most recent studies on the benefits of turmeric was published in the journal Phytotherapy Research in 2012. For this study, researchers found turmeric to be both safe and effective in treating rheumatoid arthritis (RA), a painful inflammatory condition. 

The study involved 45 people diagnosed with RA, separating them into three groups. One group received treatment of 500 mg of curcumin (the active component in turmeric) while the other received a prescription treatment—50 mg of diclofenac sodium, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) sold under numerous brand names. A third group received a combination of the two.
