- Research suggests that sound meant much more to our ancestors than archaeologists once realized, and that ancient builders 
designed subterranean soundscapes 
as stirring as any modern special effects.

When priests at the temple complex of Chavín de Huántar in central Peru sounded their conch-shell trumpets 2,500 years ago, tones magnified and echoed by stone surfaces seemed to come from everywhere, yet nowhere. The effect must have seemed otherworldly, but there was nothing mysterious about its production.

According to archaeologists at Stanford University, the temple’s builders created galleries, ducts, and ventilation shafts to channel sound. In short, the temple’s designers may have been not only expert architects but also skilled acoustical engineers.

 - A number of times over the past one billion years, the Earth's surface has "wandered" relative to its rotational axis – before returning to its original position. Now, a team of geophysicists says it has developed a theory that explains this curious phenomenon of "oscillatory true polar wander".

Understanding the mechanics behind polar wander is crucial, as a shift could tip the Earth over by as far as 50° over a period of 10–100 million years and this would cause profound global environmental and geological changes.

- Research suggests the total solar eclipse of August, 1142 coincided with the birth of the Iroquois (Five Nations) Confederacy, near modern-day Victor, New York.

A total, or near total, solar eclipse marked the beginning of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy, the oldest living democracy in North America and possibly on Earth. American democracy is said to have been modeled upon the democratic ideals of the Iroquois Confederacy, which originally consisted of five nations (Mohawk, Oneida, Onondaga, Cayuga and Seneca). The sixth nation – the Tuscarora – joined the Iroquois Confederacy in the early eighteenth century (1701-1800).

- There will be a total solar eclipse today, starting at 19:38 GMT/Universal Time (UT) on November 13 and ending at 00:46 GMT/UT on November 14, 2012.

Watch an animation of the eclipse's path and check out the world clock to see the times in your part of the world. The eclipse will affect everyone on earth, but its effects will be felt most strongly by those living in areas where it can be seen: parts of Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand, parts of South America and Antarctica.

- On Tuesday November 13, 2012 (Wednesday, Nov 14 in Australia), we will experience a Total Solar Eclipse at 22 degrees of Scorpio. During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Moon completely blots out the Sun (the lights go out.)

This eclipse occurs over Australia and the Pacific Ocean.

Hurricane Sandy and this Eclipse (which is paired with a partial lunar eclipse on Nov 28) are most certainly related. Hurricane Sandy's impact was amplified by the HIGH TIDE of the Full Moon, which added several feet to the surging tides of the storm.

Eclipse effects begin weeks (some say months) before the actual eclipse.

As mentioned above, this eclipse has a companion. Eclipses always occur in pairs. The bookend eclipse for the November 13, 2012 TSE will occur on November 28, 2012 and it will be a Partial Appulse Lunar Eclipse in Gemini (Gemini Moon/ Sagittarius Sun).

 - People from around the world are converging on the coast of northeast Australia to see a total eclipse of the sun on Nov. 14th (Australia time) when the Moon will pass directly in front of the sun.

On the morning of November 14th, 2012, the North of Australia will witness a total solar eclipse. Panasonic, using its HIT(R) solar panels and lithium ion batteries for storage, will produce a live broadcast of this spectacular astronomical phenomenon via USTREAM.

- Thirteen years ago, photographer Miyoko Ihara began snapping pictures of the budding relationship between her now 88-year-old grandmother, Misao, and her odd-eyed kitten, Fukumaru. Since Misao found the cat abandoned in a shed, the pair have barely ever been apart. Their beautiful friendship is documented in a photo book, Misao the Big Mama and Fukumaru the Cat.

 - As rates for cancer, heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, and diabetes continue to climb, many people seem to be searching for a magic bullet to have optimal health overnight.

Optimal health is not an overnight guarantee. Experts in natural health point out the obvious: a solid balanced diet, moderate exercise, and stress reduction form the basis for longevity.

A diet rich in "superfoods" is absolutely essential. According to health writers at Natural Society, it is important to use targeted superfoods on a seasonal basis for best results.

 - Believe it or not, electricity is one of the most abundant resources on the planet, the only thing that is difficult is finding ways to tap into this energy safely.

Many inventors and scientists since Nikola Tesla have discovered ways to solve this problem effectively, but due to the radical change that this would bring to the social structure, these technologies have always been suppressed.

In Africa where central power grids are few and far in between, generators are an everyday part of life. Just recently 4 teenage girls created one of the most cost effective generators that you could possibility think of in terms of fuel, because it’s fuel source, human urine, is widely abundant.

 - By stalling pending court cases, the Brazilian government is allowing construction of the Belo Monte Dam to continue illegally. If the rule of law is followed, these lawsuits could stop the construction of the dam, which will destroy 400,000 hectares of virgin Amazon and the ancestral grounds of 40 000 indigenous people.

Please add your voice to the petition urging the judiciary to urgently rule upon the slew of lawsuits against the dam that are currently stalled in its courts.

- A total solar eclipse will take place on 13-14 November 2012, beginning locally on November 13 west of the International Date Line over northern Australia, and ending on November 14 east of the date line off the western South American coast.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby totally or partially obscuring the image of the Sun for a viewer on Earth. A total solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun, blocking all direct Sunlight, turning day into darkness.

Evidence has shown a connection between Solar and Lunar Eclipses and catastrophic events, with large earth changing events occurring within a 14 day window prior to, and 14 days immediately following an Eclipse.

Will a similar scenario occur as the result of the coming full solar eclipse? Let's take a look at history and the scientific evidence of "cycles".
