Sindoni Says will be a place where I will share my observations. Looking forward to creating a place of truth where Kool-Aid isn't served.

Was Noah Raped By His Youngest Son Ham?
In The King James Bible in the book of Genesis Chapter 9, beginning at Versus 18, we learn that Noah after drinking wine had become drunk. Noah then fell asleep in his tent. Not long after, Noah was violated and raped by his youngest son Ham. After raping his father, Ham left the tent and told his two older brothers, Japeth & Shem, that he went into their father’s tent and saw him sleeping nude in his tent. The brothers went to their father’s tent and covered him
When the biblical Noah woke up, he realized that his youngest son Ham had raped him. Just like a virgin when a man is violated, he will also bleed. Noah probably also discovered sperm sticking to his rectum area. Not long after Noah curses his son Ham and his son one Canaan and his other two sons Japeth and Shem. They were all cursed and as a direct result of their father’s curse were forced to depart and decided that they would split up and make there exodus in three (3) different directions. Noah’s son’s were ashamed for what they had done to their father. It was decided by leaving Noah’s son’s (Moe, Larry & Curly) would be able to keep the raping of their father Noah a secret.
In Chapter ten (10) we also learn that all three sons after arriving in three different continents would procreate and produce other new races of people. I find this to be rather amusing when you realize that the creation of new races would have been impossible to do by Noah’s son’s. Especially, if we are to believe that Noah and his lineage were the only one’s whose lives were spared in the flood. The old testament has to be the “Greatest Alien Story” ever created.
In closing, Sindoni Says: Someone should have proof read the Old Testament before sending it to the printer.

The Phoenix Project Revelations
Date: February 24th,2018
After reading the book entitled “The Philadelphia Experiment Revelations” written by Timothy Beckley, I was able to put the puzzle pieces into place surrounding a very troubling and disturbing discovery that is being used against unsuspecting Americans throughout the United States.
My electrical wall outlet, television, Cable box, internet router, DVD player and my rabbit ear antenna was being used to send deadly radar emissions that produced interference when using any of these electronic devises.
Each and every time that I turned on any of these devises, I became dizzy and groggy. I would for no other reason fall asleep. The next thing I experienced was being jolted while sitting in front of the television.
By increasing the range between 425-450 Mega hertz radio frequency power, the human mind can be manipulated and controlled. By changing the pulse, a person can be made to laugh, cry, show anger, fear and be put to sleep.
On countless occasions, I found myself being put to sleep. Upon awaking finding out that someone had entered my apartment searching through my computers and personal items.
In Vietnam, various frequencies were hurled at the Viet Cong that was so strong that they shattered the ear drums of the people bursting their heads and killing them.
An important part of the Phoenix Project was the use of “The Sage Radar System.” It had been discovered that radio signals in the 425 to 450 Mega Hertz range were required to get “Inside” the human consciousness to allow for mind control attempts. The Sage Radar Systems ran at these frequencies, and could be converted into a huge radio sound easily.
A shocking fact was that there was a needle nose 15 foot antenna on the roof of the building directly across the street. The roof antenna can be purchased from any home electronics store. To my surprise, there was a Hasidim Jew dressed in black holding a hand held devise pointed directly at my window.
I immediately called Time Warner cable and told them of my suspicions. They immediately sent out a senior technician to try and fix the problem. The suspicious man on the balcony appeared each and every time on his balcony. Coincidence? I think not!
Not long after, I had the Cable box and the Internet disconnected. It was then that I decided to purchase a RCA digital indoor amplified antenna- Model# MAT251. The antenna enhances reception by amplifying weak signals allowing you to watch High Definition (HD) and digital TV broadcasts for free.
Another shocking fact that I discovered by simply reading the box was that the antenna had frequency ranges as high as 470 to 698 Mega Hertz. So, Someone still had the capability of sending harmful Sage High Frequency Radar Waves into my wall outlets and through my electronics products.
So, what could I do to solve this deadly problem? I purchased a portable generator and using a power strip placed my TV, DVD player and RCA Digital Antenna into the power strip and do not use any electrical power from the wall outlet. Thus, solving the problem.
My advise to anyone reading this important blog, be proactive! Take a walk around the block and look out your window and observe all that you see around you.

50 Top Linux Distributions
The 50 most well-known versions of the Linux operating system.
Posted May 10, 2011
By Cynthia Harvey
We sometimes talk about Linux as if it were one, single operating system, but of course, it really comes in hundreds of different flavors. In fact, one of the strengths of open source software is that developers can (and do) customize the code to meet a variety of unique needs.
In this article, we'll take a look at 50 of the most well-known distributions of the Linux OS. If you've been using Linux for a while, you're probably familiar with the major distributions, but you might find some others you haven't encountered that are worth checking out.
The list is organized into several different categories. The "major" distributions come first, followed by distros based on Ubuntu, Debian, Red/Hat Fedora, Mandriva, Slackware, Arch and Gentoo. Next come some distros that are optimized for cloud computing, some very lightweight distributions, some that are designed to look as much like Windows as possible and finally, some notable distros that didn't seem to fit into any other category. Of course, some distributions could fit into more than one category, but we tried to place them where they seemed to fit most naturally.
Also, in limiting ourselves to the fifty, we undoubtedly left off some noteworthy Linux distributions. If you'd like to nominate one
Canonical's Ubuntu is probably the most popular Linux distribution in the world for desktop computers. Recently released version 11.04 offers a new Unity interface. It's available in desktop, server and cloud editions, as well as in several variations that are included lower on this list.
2. Red Hat
The Red Hat company calls itself "the world's open source leader," and its server version of Linux is a particular favorite with enterprises. It's available only with a paid subscription, but does have a community version--Fedora.
This community-owned project provides the code base for a lot of other Linux distros, including Ubuntu, DSL, MEPIS and many others. It can be used for desktops or servers and all versions are completely free.
Novell's version of Linux for enterprises is available only with a paid subscription (although you can download the very similar openSUSE for free). It claims to be "the most interoperable platform for mission-critical computing–across physical, virtual and cloud environments."
5. Linux Mint
Linux Mint boasts that it is the fourth most popular operating system for home users, behind Windows, OS X, and Ubuntu. It has a reputation for being very easy to use and it includes about 30,000 packages.
First released in 1993, Slackware is one of the oldest Linux distributions. Popular with the geekiest of geeks, it relies heavily on command-line tools and is very similar to UNIX.
First released in 2002, Gentoo boasts "extreme configurability, performance and a top-notch user and developer community." It
8. <"http://www.archlinux.org/">Arch Linux
Arch is definitely not for Linux newbies, but its simple design makes it a favorite among long-time Linux users who are comfortable with the command line. By default, it installs a minimal base system but provides plenty of options for customization.
Fedora is the free, community version of RedHat's popular Linux distribution, and it's been called "the best place to track what's on the leading edge of Linux and open source software." In addition to the standard desktop download, it's available in a number of specialized versions, which it calls "spins."
The free, community version of Novell's SUSE distro, openSUSE calls itself "Linux for open minds." It can be used on a desktop, laptop or server and can be installed or run live from a CD or USB drive.
Linux Distros Based on Ubuntu
As the name suggests, Kubuntu is a Ubuntu fork that uses the KDE desktop instead of the Unity desktop. It's an excellent choice
Lubuntu is lighter, faster, and uses less energy than its namesake, making it a good choice for mobile devices, including netbooks. It uses the LXDE desktop instead of the Unity desktop.
And this is the version of Ubuntu that uses the Xfce desktop environment. It's available in both desktop and server versions.
This version of Ubuntu has been tailored for the needs of schools. Like Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu, it's sponsored by Canonical.
15. Easy Peasy
Designed for use on netbooks, EasyPeasy boasts millions of users in more than 166 countries. It was built to support social networking and cloud computing, and it offers very low power consumption for longer battery life on mobile devices.
Zentyal is a Ubuntu-based small business server that can act as a gateway, infrastructure manager, unified threat manager, office server and/or unified communication server. It's available as a free download or in paid, supported versions.
Supported by the Free Software Foundation, gNewSense is based on Ubuntu with a few changes, like the removal of non-free firmware. The name started as a pun on "Gnu" and "nuisance" and is pronounced guh-NEW-sense.
18. Pinguy OS
Built for new Linux users who need something that's even easier to use than Ubuntu, Pinguy OS makes it easy to find and use the programs average users need most often. It's also available in a DVD version for $5.99.
19. Bodhi Linux
Bodhi puts the focus on user choice and minimalism. It uses the Enlightenment desktop environment and a "software store" that makes it easy to find and install the open source applications you want to use.
Developed in Cambodia (English is supported), MoonOS is based on Ubuntu, but has a different file hierarchy system and appshell framework. It's designed for speed, great looks and low memory use.
Linux Distros Based on Debian
Debian-based MEPIS (also known as simplyMEPIS) is particularly popular with those new to Linux. It's available in free downloadable versions, or you can purchase a CD which makes trying or installing the software easy.
Sometimes written #!, CrunchBang is a lightweight distribution based on Debian. It's a popular option for netbooks like the Asus Eee.
Suitable for beginners, Knoppix is an easy-to-use distribution based on Debian. It runs from a live CD, and if you don't want to go to the trouble to burn your own (or you don't know how), you can buy one for less than two bucks.
This distro can be installed on your desktop or run easily from a USB drive. DreamLinux installs the Xfce desktop environment by default, but it also supports Gnome.
Linux Distros Based on Red Hat/Fedora
Owned by a publicly traded French company, Mandriva claims more than 3 million users worldwide. It's available in several editions, desktop and server, paid and unpaid, including a unique Instant On version that boots up with minimal functionality in less than 10 seconds.
Short for "Community ENTerprise Operating System," CentOS is based primarily on Red Hat code. It's the most popular version of Linux for Web servers, accounting for about 30 percent of Linux-based Web servers.
27. Scientific Linux
Created by the folks at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), as well as various scientists and universities, Scientific Linux (SL) aims to prevent scientists at each of these different institutions from having to recreate a Linux distribution that meets their needs. It's basically the same as Red Hat Enterprise Linux with a few slight modifications.
Fusion describes itself as a "pimp my ride" version of Fedora. It offers good multimedia support and an interesting look and feel. It's best for more advanced Linux users who are looking for cutting edge, experimental applications.
Linux Distros Based on Mandriva
Instead of being built for end users, Unity is built to give developers or advanced Linux users some modular pieces they can use to create a customized distribution. Despite its name, it has nothing to do with the Unity desktop used by Ubuntu; instead, the Unity OS uses the OpenBox graphical environment.
In 2010, a group of Mandriva developers began this community-driven fork following some ownership changes at the company that owns the Mandriva project. It's currently in beta, but the first official release is due in a few weeks.
Distros Based on Slackware
Originally based on Slackware and called "Minislack," ZenWalk has evolved to become a modern, fast, lightweight distribution that's easy to use. It's available in five versions: standard, core, live, Gnome and Openbox.
32. Vector Linux
VectorLinux's credo is "keep it simple, keep it small and let the end user decide what their operating system is going to be." In addition to the free download, it's also available in a supported "deluxe" edition.
Like Slackware, Frugalware is best for users who aren't afraid of the command line, although it does have some graphical tools. It's designed with simplicity in mind.
34. Salix OS
Salix compares itself to a bonsai tree in that it is "small, light and the product of infinite care." It comes in four different versions for the Xfce, LXDE, Fluxbox and KDE desktop environments.
Linux Distros Based on Arch Linux
Based on ArchLinux, Chakra uses the KDE desktop. It uses a unique "bundles" system to let users access Gtk apps without actually installing them on the system.
This Arch variant uses the Openbox Window Manager. It's fast and lightweight, and offers many of the same customization capabilities as Arch.
Linux Distros Based on Gentoo
Named after an Italian dessert, Sabayon aims to be the "cutest" Linux distribution — "as easy as an abacus, as fast as a Segway." It's based on Gentoo, and it supports the KDE, Gnome, LXDE and Xfce desktop environments.
Cloud Computing Distros
38. Joli OS
Joli installs in just ten minutes and is optimized for cloud computing applicatons. Use it to breathe new life into an old PC, or you can run it alongside Windows.
A good choice for netbooks or older PCs, Peppermint is designed to work with cloud and Web apps. The name might make you think it's based on Mint, but it's not. It's actually based on Lubuntu, which of course, is based on Ubuntu.
Formerly known as Peanut Linux, aLinux is designed to be both fast and multimedia-friendly. Its graphic interface provides an easy transition for former Windows users.
At just 50MB, this distro lives up to its name – Damn Small Linux (DSL). As you might expect, it's very fast and runs on older PCs, as well as fitting onto small USB drives and business card CDs.
42. Tiny Core Linux
One of the smallest Linux distros available, Tiny Core weighs in at just 10MB in its GUI version. The command line version, Micro Core, is even smaller – just 6MB.
43. Puppy Linux
Small and fast, Puppy is designed to be installed on a USB thumb drive that users can take with them and boot from any PC. It takes up about 100 MB, boots in less than a minute, and runs from RAM for maximum speed.
44. Zorin OS
Unlike most Linux distributions, Zorin was designed to look and feel as much like Windows as possible – only faster and without as many bugs. It's available in both free and paid verions.
45. Ylmf OS
Like Zorin, Ylmf's interface looks a lot like Windows, in this case the Windows XP classic look. Created by Chinese developers, it's available in either Chinese or English, and it's based on Ubuntu.
GoboLinux's claim to fame is that is doesn't use the Unix Filesystem Hierarchy Standard, but instead stores each program in its own sub-directory in the Program directory. That means that it's a little bit easier to use for Linux newbies or experienced Linux users who like to install applications from the original source code.
Designed to be easy to use, PCLinuxOS can be run on a Live CD or installed on a desktop or laptop. It supports seven different desktops, including KDE, Gnome, Enlightenment, XFCE, LXDE, and others.
Based on Intel's Moblin and Nokia's Maemo, MeeGo is known as a smartphone OS, but it can also be used on netbooks and other mobile devices. With Nokia moving to Windows Phone 7 for future headsets, MeeGo's future is uncertain.
49. Chrome OS/Chromium OS
Google's operating system goes by two names, which can make things confusing. Officially, "Chromium OS" is the open source version used primarily by developers, and "Chrome OS" is the name for the version of the operating system Google plans to include on netbooks for end users. And just to make things even more confusing, both projects share a name with Google's Web browser. For now, Chromium OS (the only version available for download) is really only suitable for advanced users and developers.
50. Musix GNU+Linux
As its name implies, Musix is geared for multi-media enthusiasts, particularly those involved in audio editing. It can boot from a live disk or be installed on a system.

Stockton and Lemuria: Case Closed
Posted Jun 3, 2017 at 1:30 PM
A New York paranormal researcher and filmmaker says he’s finally cracked the case of a mysterious man who pulled off the most outlandish flimflam in Stockton history.
Stephen Sindoni says after years of sleuthing he’s discovered the true identity of a ‘J.C. Brown’ who in 1934 tricked scores of Stocktonians into believing in a fabled place called Lemuria.
“The information below will connect the dots,” Sindoni writes. “American folklore and legend has now one less mystery.”
Come with me down the rabbit hole as I explain. And remember, I don’t make ’em up. I just report ’em.
The Stockton Record of June 9, 1934, reported that 80 Stocktonians were found that morning at the inner harbor waiting in vain for boats. When questioned, the people said they had signed onto an archeological expedition. One supposed to take them north to Mount Shasta and deep inside the mountain.
There, these people believed, recently had been discovered remains of a race of higher beings, the Lemurians. Lemuria is a legend, “the Atlantis of the Pacific.” Many Stocktonians had sold their houses and quit jobs, expecting to become rich and famous, like Lord Carnavon had done a decade earlier by discovering the treasure-filled tomb of Tutankhamen.
Except the boats didn’t come. It was all bullpucky. The Record ran a jubilant, top-of-the fold, page 1 headline: 80 Stocktonians Left Behind in Search for ’Lost Continent.′ When the reporter got around to the “who” and “why,” the victims said they had been attending daily lectures on Lemuria held in a house on the 1700 block of North San Joaquin Street. The lecturer, a mining engineer who claimed to have discovered it, called himself J.C. Brown.
Cultured, white-haired, Brown, 79, said he had stumbled onto a hidden door on Mount Shasta while doing geological research. The door opened onto a tunnel. In spellbinding detail, Brown described descending 11 miles to what he called “the Village” and finding among its dwellings, streets and ornate altars 27 skeletons of beings up to 10 feet in height; an embalmed king and queen; and a fortune in gold, radium and copper.
Brown was supposed to lead the expedition. But on departure day the boats (which had unbreakable Lemurian glass bottoms, Brown said) Brown did a royal Houdini. He was never heard from again.
Reporters investigating found he wasn’t who he said he was. But they never established Brown’s true identity. Or why he’d run such an elaborate ruse — he never took a penny from anybody.
I reported this delightful, baffling tale 10 years ago. Sindoni plucked it off the web. Sindoni became — I won’t say obsessed — determined to unravel the mystery of J.C. Brown.
The twist (as if this saga needs another one) is that Sindoni is one of those New Age/ufologist-types who really believes in Lemuria and other paranormal things.
He’s traveled to Stockton with a film crew to film locations (and me, sheepishly). He’s scoured the side of Mt. Shasta for the hidden door. For a decade he’s burrowed into archives in America and the United Kingdom to find who J.C. Brown really was.
“It is my strong belief that that J.C. Brown was really a man named John Benjamin Body,” Sindoni said. J.B. Body really was a (retired) mining engineer who had worked in Mexico and elsewhere for the Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England.
Sindoni unearthed records that show Body’s in-laws lived in a house right across San Joaquin Street from the one in which he lectured about Lemuria.
So it appears the man who pulled off the biggest prank in Stockton history was really a visiting retiree named J.B. Body.
But why? Who does that? Powered, perhaps, by energy from the vortex surrounding Mount Shasta we’ll find answers one day.

Stockton area link to lost city
By Michael Ftizgerald
February 17, 2008 6:00 AM
An aspiring screenwriter from Brooklyn contacted this paper the other day, researching a baffling 1934 Stockton incident, a mysterious man and the lost civilization of Lemuria.
Stephen Sindoni said he is writing a screenplay about J.C. Brown. Brown was either a geologist (his claim) charlatan or wacko (my opinion) or hunted man hiding behind an alias (Sindoni's deduction).
Whoever Brown was, it is a fact that he turned up in Stockton in 1934, claiming he'd discovered Lemuria.
Legend holds Lemuria, the Atlantis of the Pacific, sank in ancient times. In some variations, Lemurians, higher beings, retreated to a hidden city deep within Mount Shasta.
Brown, 79, introduced himself in respectable circles. Then he announced he had discovered a hidden tunnel in the Cascades while prospecting for the Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England.
"Eleven miles inside the mountain, and approximately 2,300 feet from the surface, I struck what I called 'The Village,' " he told a reporter.
The Village, actually big chambers, contained streets, ornate altars, copper- and gold-inscribed tablets, copper spears with flexibility beyond modern metallurgy, and unbreakable glass.
He also described 27 skeletons of beings up to 10 feet in height; an embalmed king and queen; other pretty fabulous stuff; and a fortune in gold, radium and copper.
Brown began holding daily lectures in a Stockton house. Owing either to his oratory skill or folks' greed for Lemurian treasure, he appears to have gained Svengali-like sway over his audience.
He told people he was worth $40 million. Nobody doubted. He revealed that distant mystic yogis directed him. People believed. He vowed to take them to Lemuria. People eagerly signed on.
Brown instructed them to assemble at the channel head at 1 p.m. June 19. A craft from his fleet, tricked out with a Lemurian glass bottom, would arrive to transport them.
Some folks actually sold their houses in preparation. And at the appointed hour, 80 Stocktonians assembled at the rendezvous, only to get the Lemurian-bronze shaft.
The boat did not arrive. Many waited all night. Brown did not appear. Police sought him "for purposes of questioning," but he was never seen again.
Investigation found he'd been living at a homeless shelter before he talked his way into better digs. His file suggested he may have suffered mental health problems.
A cynical reporter, expecting Brown's gang had been fleeced, was stumped to find that Brown never took a dime from anybody. So what the heck was it all about?
Nobody figured it out.
Until Sindoni got on the case. Sindoni said he became intrigued by Lemuria and J.C. Brown while surfing the Internet for a fitting screenplay subject.
Extending Sindoni standard professional courtesy, I pulled the story off microfilm and plugged a couple holes in his research. In exchange, I asked to interview him.
This arrangement was based on my assumption that Sindoni was writing a humorous tale of a con/crackpot and the suckers he duped with his Lemuria spiel.
But when I got Sindoni on the phone, it emerged he actually believes that Brown actually discovered an actual lost city of actual Lemurians.
"Yes, I do," Sindoni said.
Mount Shasta does, in fact, boast a large literature and lore about Lemurians, much as Nevada boasts lore about UFOs. Sindoni believes the Lemurian tales.
"Guy Ballard - pen name, Godfrey King - talked about being up Mount Shasta in 1930," Sindoni said. "He met St. Germain, who told him the ascended masters lived in the hollows of the earth in Mount Shasta."
Sindoni went on to share his belief, based on his research, that J.C. Brown was really J.B. Body, a lieutenant in the Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England.
It was Body who discovered the tunnel and descended into the Lemurian city. He adopted the Brown alias to evade government agents. They wanted Lemuria kept secret. Lemuria's existence was too explosive, Sindoni reasoned.
Stockton got too hot for Brown. Hence his abrupt disappearance.

Our blog topic for today is entitled “Stephen's Hole. In this blog, I will share a true story that happened to me while doing research on the “Legend of J.C. Brown” in Mt. Shasta, California in 2009.
Not long after arriving in Mt. Shasta, I raised some serious eyebrows from the locals when they learned that I was looking for artifacts or giant skeleton remains that might be connected to the “Legend of J.C. Brown.” For anyone who is not familiar with this legend, you need only go to the video tab and click on the “Legend of J.C. Brown category to watch the documentary movie.
It was also in this same time period in the summer and fall of 2009, that I was doing a local Internet and cable talk show at the local college in Weed, California. The program was entitled “Legend, Mystery and More.” The program was specifically about Mt. Shasta and all of the legends that surrounded it. When I wasn't filming an episode, I could be found hiking on Mt. Shasta.
Native American legends also share stories about an ancient race of people who they refer to as “The Tall Ones” who lived under the bowels of Mt Shasta and may still be living there today.
On July 1st, of 2009, I was interviewed by Charlie Unkerfer of the Mt. Shasta Herald.
The article was released in the Sunday edition of the newspaper. The legend instantly created a buzz around the city of Mt. Shasta. I was now under the spotlight. There was nowhere that I could go without a stranger coming up to me and asking about what if anything that I had found.
In September of 2009, I left Mt. Shasta and moved to Ashland, Oregon to begin production on a Internet radio program. For the next four to six weeks, the crew and I spent all of our time working on the program. Mt. Shasta was the furthest thing from my mind or so I thought.
In late October, I received a phone call from Arthur Aday. Arthur hosted his own Internet
talk show at the college. I had been a guest on his program several times. He even doubled as a cameraman of a few of my television programs. As a result, we became good friends. Arthur was my bud.
Arthur started out the conversation informing me a rather large hole had been dug on or around Mt. Shasta. He then went on to say, that the hole, was about 15 feet wide, and was estimated by some observers to be at least 60 feet deep. It was a massive hole.
I the asked if he knew who may have dug the hole?
Arthur then answered, “Well the United States Forest Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) were at the television studio today looking for you to answer some questions. Apparently, they think you had something to do with digging the hole.
Immediately, the Art Bell Coast To Coast am broadcast with Art's guest Mel Waters popped into my mind. The “Mel's Hole” program was a hot topic in the Pacific Northwest. Mel's Hole” was claimed by Mel Waters to be over fifteen miles deep.
The FBI asked Audra Gibson, the Program Director, if you ever mentioned digging any holes in or around Mt. Shasta? Her and I quickly came to your defense. They then asked if they could see all of the programs that I had done with the college. Arthur went on to say, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, purchased every one of the Legend, Mystery and More episodes that were recorded and aired at the college. They also purchased (3) three of Arthur's “A Day in Telos” programs. Arthur ended the phone call by saying,”Dude you're famous!”
I hung up the phone and couldn't stop laughing. When I finally stopped laughing, my friend who was standing nearby, asked what was so funny?” I jokingly answered” You've heard of Mel's Hole, now there's a second hole, its being called Stephen's Hole.”
I will now include the Mt. Shasta Herald newspaper article for your perusal:
Oct 23, 2009 at 12:01 AM Jul 1, 2012 at 10:12 AM
Whatever their purpose was, the people who dug a deep and wide hole by hand on National Forest property on Mt. Shasta this summer put in a great deal of effort.
Whatever their purpose was, the people who dug a deep and wide hole by hand on National Forest property on Mt. Shasta this summer put in a great deal of effort.Then they abandoned it.
US Forest Service law enforcement officer Carmen Kinch says she knows who is responsible and she’s proceeding with filing charges. The hole, about 15 feet wide, was estimated by some observers to be 60 feet deep.It was refilled by the Forest Service last Friday because it presented a safety hazard, Kinch said. The hole was dug on the site of the Mountain Thin project. Many of the trees in the area had previously been marked with paint, but that paint had faded over time. In July of this year, Kinch said the trees were repainted with blue rings on the bark. That’s when the hole was discovered, but the diggers were not seen.
Kinch said she was out of the area working on assignment in July and into August, but has been investigating the hole since she returned. She says she now knows who is responsible but has yet to make contact with that person. She said he is not a local resident. She believes the goal of the illegal hole digging enterprise was to find “valuable minerals.”
Remnants from the operation, including a wire above the hole that was connected to two trees and had a pulley mechanism on it, were left behind. Also left behind was a ladder leaning up against a tree near the hole and numerous buckets. large pile of dirt and rocks surrounded the hole.
This was not an easy enterprise.One very large boulder was perched on a ledge just above the hole. It appeared that the diggers may have intentionally gone around it because it was too large to move.
One recent observer at the hole site noted with irony that one of the items that remained at the bottom of the hole was a bottle of “SmartWater.”Two of the charges that Kinch said she plans to bring against the person responsible for the hole are damage to a National Forest and removing natural resources without a permit – “and anything else I can come up with,”?she added.
In closing, if anyone would to comment about this topic, I look forward to reading what you have to say.

Our topic for today is “Giants in America” In this blog, I will share with you the reader an excerpt from the PDF E Book “Stockton Record News Paper” that can be found in the web store on this web site. The book shares little know secrets about the discovery of giant skeletons 7- 12 feet tall, that were found in the Cascade mountain range of Northern California by a mysterious elderly gentleman who went by the name J.C. Brown. After spinning his amazing tale to the town’s people of Stockton California, J.C. Brown simply disappeared. The excerpt reads as follows:
Stockton Record 1934 News Article JC Brown
Here’s Brown’s Weird Tale of Lost “Village.”
Brown’s original story as told to a representative of the record a month and a half ago, probably for the first time in Stockton, minus details concerning his personal history, follows:
“I found this cave while working in the Cascade Mountains for The Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England. I noticed a section of the rock in the face of the cliff which did not jibe with the formation of the real of the mass.”
Entering the Tunnel:
“After removing the rock, I entered the tunnel which curved downward. Three miles from the mouth of the tunnel, which was seven feet wide and ten feet high, I struck a cross section containing gold bearing ore. Further on, I struck another cross section where this ancient race had apparently mined copper.
The air in one section was bad. I believe the other cross sections outcropped on some other part of the mountain. The decline continued and eleven miles inside the mountain and approximately 2300 feet from the surface, I struck what I called “The Village.”
Filled With Tablets:
Two rooms about 12 by twenty feet were filled with copper and gold tablets, about three by four inches and concave, so that one laid inside one other. The rooms were literally full of three plates, inscribed neatly. Another room contained many weapons. The tempered copper spears were so that one could bend the head of the weapon to the base of the shaft and it would spring back into place.
Streets Laid Out:
“Streets were laid out in the village. In one long room were laid out at angles to the wall 27 skeletons, the smallest of which was 6 feet 6 inches and the tallest more than 10 feet. In another room lay, apparently embalmed by some secret process, the bodies of a man and a woman, dressed in royal robes, which I believe were the king and queen of this race.”
“The worship room was beautiful to behold. There on the walls were three great crosses not of the conventional modern type, and a sun designed, worked in copper and gold. The streamers from the sun were worked in gold stringers. There were, I believe 13 statues made of copper and gold.”
“I believe this race of people forms an important link in ancient American history. They were highly skilled craftsman, as their work shows. Because there was a glow to three of these statues, I believe they used radium, and I believe it was with use of radium that they tempered the copper.
My wish is to enlist a corps of trained people, whom I shall pay well for their services, to assist me in cataloging these specimens. I want the relics in this cave to remain intact. Those in two other caves which I have located may go to those who have aided me.”
“In a vault in a Texas bank I have pictures of this scene and papers. You see, my family planned to exploit the cave themselves. My wife’s father, my wife, my two daughters, and an old college chum. A series of tragedies struck me. First one died, then another; one was killed in an accident and the others died. I was hurt in an accident. I lost all heart in this ambition, but I’m getting back on my feet again, and if my health holds out, I’ll get started.
“Have you ever read or studied anything about the lost continent of Lemuria? Scientists claim it is the connecting link in the story of civilization. I believe here is the key to that lost civilization.”

Our topic for today is “Positive Thinking.” In this blog, I will share with you the reader an excerpt from the PDF E Book “Know Thyself that can be found in the web store on this web site. The book shares little know secrets in how anyone can be the best they can possibly be, by following a step by step process. The excerpt reads as follows:
In the year 337 BC Philip II of Macedonia invited Aristotle, a renowned philosopher of his day to the Capital city of Pella to undertake the education of his son Alexander, then thirteen. Aristotle labored at the task for four years instructing the young lad forming his mind. Lysimicus taught him to write letters and Leonidus trained his body. Alexander admired Greek Literature and he envied Greek civilization.He was a lover of all kinds of reading and had a passionate thirst for learning.
Alexander was blessed with soft, blue, melting eyes and luxurious blond hair. He was sentimental and emotional. Physically he was strong and well proportioned. Though not tall, he was excellent in all sports and could have easily entered the Olympic Games because of his physical agility.
The Greeks viewed sport as a vital and important form of artistic expression. Only freeborn Greeks were allowed to compete in the games. The athletes were submitted to ten months of rigorous training under the tutelage of professional instructors to prepare for the events.
In Greece, there was no greater fame for a man. Victorious athletesreceived jubilant welcomes as they returned home from competition receiving triumphant processions and were treated as royalty. Statues were erected in their honor and they were held in highest esteem.
Alexander’s friends tried unsuccessfully to convince him to enter the games.Alexander’s response “Only if my opponents are Kings will I compete”. One quality in him dominated all the rest ---- ambition. Alexander was a hero worshiper and wanted desperately to please his father.
Philip spent most of his time away on campaign and upon his return to Pella, was fully occupied with diplomatic affairs and state banquets. He spent very little time with young Alexander. Alexander’s relationship with Philip was rather complex. There was a genuine admiration, but also an underlying competitiveness between the two. He wanted badly to follow in his father’s footsteps. Alexander’s fear was that Philip would leave nothing for him to conquer. The lad was extremely ambitious.
From an early age Alexander was accustomed to the company of politicians, artists, ambassador, and generals. He would imitate their phrases and conversational tone with accuracy. Alexander was destined to become a man of action. Alexander absorbed politics, science, and a love for Homer’s epic “The Iliad.” He lusted for Homeric glory. He saw himself as Achilles a great conqueror, one thousand years before him. He deemed it as the perfect treasure of all military virtue and knowledge.
Alexander would memorize each and every line and recite important passages to build his inner strength, morning, noon, and night. He began to condition his mind to make his vision a reality.
Alexander would see himself winning battle after battle. He could taste the victory in his mouth, as if it were red wine. He could smell the incense and myrrh brought back from his conquests. Alexander used the power of his own mind to believe strongly that his creative vision would come to pass. His Life’s purpose and direction were becoming clearer with each passing day.
Alexander conversed with the great scholars of his time until sometimes into the early morning hours. He kept his thoughts clearly focused on unifying the eastern Mediterranean world into one culture.
Once Alexander’s school days were over, he was formally appointed “Regent of Macedonia” and “Master of the Royal Seal.” He was given an experienced council as his advisor.
No sooner had Philip left on his Byzantine campaign, a rebellion broke out among the Maedi, a powerful warlike tribe. Alexander without hesitation took an expedition north and defeated the rebels, capturing the city, and renaming it Alexandropolis in imitation of his father’s similar outpost Philipolis.
Meanwhile Philip’s campaign was not going well, and he summoned his son Alexander for a decisive battle at Chaerona, northeast of Athens. Philip commanded on the right wing, while Alexander only eighteen, led a pre-dawn cavalry charge on the left, delivering the knockout blow that clinched Philip’s victory.
Alexander was a brave soldier whose perseverance marched onward. He led his troops by the brilliance of his boyish imagination. He believed that nothing was impossible and he inspired his generals on to victory.
After Philip’s death at the hands of an assassin, Alexander came to power. He was prepared to dominate the world and make his father’s vision a reality. Remembering his father’s words “Oh my son, seek out a kingdom worthy of yourself, for Macedonia is too little.”
On a bright sunny day in 334 BC, Alexander led thirty thousand foot soldiers and five thousand cavalry from the city of Macedonia. He also brought along botanists, geographers, and steppers to measure distance. Alexander went forth not only to conquer but survey the new world! Alexander taking the helm of a galley ship navigated south to Troy. His journey to Troy was to obtain a symbol of good luck. He received a sacred shield from the Trojan War nearly one thousand years earlier in exchange for his armor. Alexander believed that he was the hero in Homer’s classic “The Iliad” and that history would again repeat itself.
Alexander returned from Troy with the Trojan symbol of good luck and his most treasured possession “The Iliad” which he slept with under his pillow beside his dagger. Armed with the sacred shield he was ready to do battle. Alexander led his men to victory at Granicus River. In the next thirteen years, he mapped unknown territories, built cities,opened trade routes, and stimulated the exchange of ideas between three continents.
In the spring of 323 BC, Alexander returned to Babylon, for the last time. Worn out from wounds and hardships, he fell ill with a fever. He could neither move nor speak. He was propped up so that all of his officer’s and soldier’s could file past and pay their respects. Alexander acknowledged each and every man with his eyes. Two days later he died.
Alexander’s belief is what made him great. He believed so strongly that his vision came to pass. Alexander stood alone against half the world and because of his positive thinking he encouraged all that he came into contact with, to use the incredible power that lies within each of us. “Know Thyself”
Beyond the ancient story of Alexander lies truth. But real truth can only be found from within. Each individual must seek out their own fulfillment in life. The true wisdom of the ages is to “Know Thyself.” Just as Alexander marched through life with confidence and courage, you must do exactly the same if you want to be successful.
Alexander knew he had a choice between a long peaceful life or a career of spectacular fame. He chose fame. What will you choose? The decision is entirely up to you. In order to reach the end of your journey successfully like Alexander, you will need to navigate through some rough and unfamiliar waters to become the person that you want to be.
Do you have the confidence and courage it takes to succeed? Do you have the strength and perseverance needed to move forward in spite of the obstacles and despair? If you are having difficulty honestly answering these questions, then I suggest that you follow Alexander’s’ story more closely.

Our topic for today is Internet security. In this blog post, I will include the the introduction to my new book "Below The Radar." The PDF E book can be found in the web store on this web site. The "Below The Radar" introduction excerpt reads as follows:
In the early 1990's, I was working as a Video Sales Counselor for a large well known electronics company. My area of expertise was television, VCR, and video camcorders. At that time, televisions were analog and using rabbit ears antennas for broadcast reception. This was at a point in time when we as a nation were still relying on analog technology to watch television programs from local affiliates such as CBS, NBC, and ABC. In total, we had a little over a dozen channels to choose from. All the channels were being broadcast to our living rooms from within a fifty-mile radius. For those individuals who were living further away from the city, these individuals needed to have a high-powered roof antenna to be able to receive television signals to watch television at home. There was no digital television. This was at a time when we didn't even have cable television. But that was all about to soon change.
Our store manager held a meeting with the men who worked in the Video, Audio and Computer Departments to inform all of the employees that we would soon be getting a visit from Sales Representatives who worked for electronics manufacturing companies such as Sony, Mitsubishi, RCA, Sharp, JV, Toshiba and many others. The purpose for this visit was to inform us that digital television would soon be replacing the analog television sets that we had all had so become accustomed to. The Sales Representatives would be spreading the gospel that digital television would soon be replacing analog television sets. The Sales Representatives would be coming to our stores throughout the country. As a recall, our company had well over a hundred stores. This in my mind was huge!
Within a matter of days, the first Sales Representatives from RCA arrived with their product lines of digital televisions and went over the features, functions and benefits of each specific model. We were informed that all of our stores within the next sixty days would be soon receiving digital televisions.
They would no longer be shipping the analog models. All of their television sets would now be obsolete. The Sales Representative went on to say that the US. government in agreement with the Federal Communications Commission was mandating this change to be in full effect by the year 2000.
Being curious by nature, I pondering the thought, “Why would the government get involved with the FCC in this matter?” After our store received the first shipment of digital television sets, I asked one of my friends who worked in the Electronics Return Department to open the back of one the digital televisions.
What my friend and I discovered revealed a hidden built-in microphone that could be used to eavesdrop on personal conversations and a web-cam that could be used to watch unsuspecting US. citizens in their own home. Once the television set was connected to the cable box these features could be turned on and used to spy on all of us. Big Brother now had the capability to spy on 67 million households. Does this sound like the book written by George Orwell 1984? It was then I became highly suspicious.
What I knew about a television set’s ability to use 525 scanning lines to transmit an image called an aspect ratio, triggered an alarming question. What if someone decided to reduce the 525 scanning lines to create a smaller image, for example, a letterbox smaller, and wider screen similar to what you would see when you went to the movie theater would appear and the unused portion of the television screen could be used to send a higher EMF signal to the set that was designed to send harmful EMF waves to the unsuspecting viewer? Has anyone ever fallen asleep and left the television set on only to find the television screen size has been reduced similar to the letterbox theater image and as a direct result of changing the aspect ratio on your set and using the television set as a weapon of destruction against you, woke up with an extreme headache? It does make you wonder, doesn't it?
Has anyone ever set the microwave for let's say two minutes and noticed that somehow while you were standing next to the microwave that the timer setting was changed mysteriously to 20 minutes?
How about having the toaster set to a low number and discovering that your toast has been burned to a crisp? And you were standing right next to it? Did you ever wonder where your missing sock went in the clothes dryer? Can anyone reading these words tell me where the missing sock went? I'll leave this riddle for the May-tag repair man television commercial pitch man to figure out.
And lastly, how about getting hacked on your Microsoft Windows or Apple Operating System? Then you pick up the phone and call tech support and you explain the problem to the technician who walks you through a couple of steps to fix the problem. But he or she never explains what caused the malfunction. So, if you're like me, you want to know how to troubleshoot the problem to find the solution without ever having to call technical support.
The problems that I have cited in this introduction are the main reasons for writing this book. How many of you honestly read the manual (RTM) when you purchase a computer or any other electronic device?
Therefore, it is my hope that everyone reading this book will find my tips quite useful in this turbulent times. The information that can be found in this book are the result of over twenty years of my own personal experiences with computer and electronic devices. Most of what I will be sharing with you are little known facts that computer manufacturers will not share with you. Their job is to sell equipment. The more equipment they sell, the more money they will make. It is more to their liking to sell you a new piece of equipment than to fix the computer that one of their customers purchased. Once the computer warranty has expired, you're on your own. The manufacturer, whether it be Apple, Microsoft, Toshiba, Hewlett Packard or any of the other manufacturer, is going to do their best to sell you a new computer.
In this book, you'll learn how to turn lemons into lemonade. Remember the wise adage, “The difference between knowledge and wisdom is knowing what to do next.”
In closing, it is my hope that the introduction to the book "Below The Radar" has motivated you the reader to purchase the book. You'll learn many things about computers and Internet security that you will not learn anywhere else.
