Earth’s North Magnetic Pole is moving quickly away from the Canadian Arctic toward Siberia.

Earth’s North magnetic pole is moving faster towards Siberia. Because of the shifting of the North Pole, NCEI’s scientists have had to issue an early update of the World Magnetic Model.

From https://www.ncei.noaa.gov/news/world-magnetic-model-out-cycle-release :
Uses of the WMM

Organizations, such as NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Forest Service, and many more use this technologyThe military uses the WMM for undersea and aircraft navigation, parachute deployment, and more. Other governmental organizations, such as NASA, the Federal Aviation Administration, U.S. Forest Service, and many more use this technology for surveying and mapping, satellite/antenna tracking, and air traffic management.

Smartphone and consumer electronics companies also rely on the WMM to provide consumers with accurate compass apps, maps, and GPS services.

Airport runways are perhaps the most visible example of a navigation aid updated to match shifts in Earth’s magnetic field. Airports around the country use the data to give runways numerical names, which pilots refer to on the ground.“.

Inverted Yield Curve indicates that a Recession is coming!

An Inverted Yield Curve has historically been a reliable signal that a Recession is on its way! You get an Inverted Yield Curve when short-term yields are higher than longer-term yields.

A drop in the Stock Markets on a Friday
is NOT A GOOD THING!

Why?

People will have Sat and Sun to get worried. When Investors get worried they tend to Sell. I believe that Monday Mar 25 will be another down day in the Stock Markets.

Next Monday’s drops should be greater than today’s drops.

US Fed announced no Interest Hikes in 2019

In 2018, the US Fed had stated that there would be up to three Interest Rate hikes in 2019.  Today the Fed announced that there will not be any Interest rate Hikes in 2019. Yes, they seem to have reversed course.

IMHO I believe this is smoke and mirrors. The Price of Oil has had a price breakout upwards. Expect to pay MORE for fuel. That will spark Inflation again, just as it had last year. When the Rate of Inflation goes up, then the US Fed will raise Interest Rates.

Oil Price breakout upwards

The fastest way to increase Inflation is to raise the price of Oil. When the cost of Oil is raised, then the cost of Fuel will also go up. That impacts all goods sold. Why? All goods sold need to be transported. When the cost of Fuel goes up, so does the cost of Shipping and Distribution. Those rising costs get passed to the consumer. Hence the Rate of Inflation rises.

If you want to raise Internet Rates (as the US FED had started to do last year) then you need a rising Inflation Rate as justification.

The U.S. Fed will continue to raise Interest Rates in 2019.

IMHO the Stock Market party is almost over

Back in Dec I called that the upcoming stock market rally would be a “Sucker Rally“, which would allow deeper pockets to off load their stock holdings. BlackRock’s Chief Equity Strategist Kate Moore called it a “Risk Rally” when she recently stated “A lot of the investors within BlackRock and around the street have been using the big rally in stocks as an opportunity to fade some risk, and rebalancing portfolios. I’d be hard pressed to come up with a segment of our clients that was buying aggressively into this risk rally,”.

The US Fed will be holding meetings for the next two days. They will continue to raise Interest Rates again this year. I’m just not sure if they will have a rate increase now or wait till later this year. The key excuse of raising Interest Rates is to fight Inflationary Pressure.

I have noted that Gasoline prices have stopped going down and IMHO have started to reverse back upwards. The price of fuel impacts the price of all goods sold, as those goods have to be transported. Raise the price of fuel and you trigger an increase in the Rate of Inflation. That theme was used last year to trigger Inflation Growth to help justify the increases in Internet Rates. It worked until it impacted the Stock Markets last December.

When Interest Rates are increased once more, that will imho trigger a Stock Market correction which will lead into a Major Recession. 2019 should see Stock Market and Economic changes of Historic Proportions.

Is the US Economy LOSING STEAM?

Technological Unemployment. By 2020 over 70% of companies will start to use use machines to perform tasks previously done by humans

Robotic Process Automation is what corporate leaders are calling the replacement of Human worker with machines. Creating Technological Unemployment is very big business.

New Medical Study sheds light on P. gingivalis colonization in a Human Brain as being the cause of developing Alzheimer’s Disease. The study also found that 100% of patients with Cardiovascular Disease had P. gingivalis arterial colonization.

Having Bad Breath could be a Major Risk Factor in developing Alzheimer’s Disease and Cardiovascular Disease.

A new Medical Study just released sheds light on P. gingivalis colonization in a human Brain as being the cause of developing Alzheimer’s Disease. The study also found that 100% of patients with Cardiovascular Disease had P. gingivalis arterial colonization.

The medical study is published by American Association for the Advancement of ScienceScience Advances. Click on this link to visit the Science Advances site to read the study titled “Porphyromonas gingivalis in Alzheimer’s disease brains: Evidence for disease causation and treatment with small-molecule inhibitors“.

The following are brief excerpts (you can read the full Study at the link noted above) from this new Research Study:

“The bacterium called gingipains (P. gingivalis) were identified in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients.”

Video is courtesy of OSH News Network YouTube Channel

Oral P. gingivalis infection in mice resulted in brain colonization and increased production of Aβ1–42, a component of amyloid plaques. Further, gingipains were neurotoxic in vivo and in vitro, exerting detrimental effects on tau, a protein needed for normal neuronal function.”

“Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients exhibit neuroinflammation consistent with infection, including microglial activation, inflammasome activation, complement activation, and altered cytokine profiles (1, 2). Infectious agents have been found in the brain and postulated to be involved with AD, but robust evidence of causation has not been established (3).”

“In Apoe−/− mice, oral infection with P. gingivalis, but not with two other oral bacteria, results in brain infection and activation of the complement pathway (14). In transgenic mice overexpressing mutated human amyloid precursor protein (hAPP-J20), oral infection with P. gingivalis impairs cognitive function, increases the deposition of AD-like plaques, and results in alveolar bone loss compared to control hAPP-J20 mice (15). P. gingivalis lipopolysaccharide has been detected in human AD brains (16), promoting the hypothesis that P. gingivalis infection of the brain plays a role in AD pathogenesis (17).”

“P. gingivalis is mainly found during gingival and periodontal infections; however, it can also be found at low levels in 25% of healthy individuals with no oral disease (18). Transient bacteremia of P. gingivalis can occur during common activities such as brushing, flossing, and chewing, as well as during dental procedures (19), resulting in documented translocation to a variety of tissues including coronary arteries (20), placenta (21), and liver (22).”

“A recent study found that 100% of patients with cardiovascular disease had P. gingivalis arterial colonization.” (23).

1,500 Private Jets to ferry attendees to the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos

Private Jets will fill the sky at Davos. Huge Limousines will then fill the streets of Davos. And no one will even mention the massive Carbon Footprint of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Attendees.

Many attendees flew to Switzerland via Private Jets. Many Attendees to be driven around in huge Limousines. Their Carbon Footprint and impact on Global Warming – Climate Change is never mentioned. Why is that?

The following is from the National Cancer Institute webpage linked to above titled “Cannabis and Cannabinoids (PDQ®)–Patient Version
Questions and Answers About Cannabis”

Have any preclinical (laboratory or animal) studies been conducted using Cannabis or cannabinoids?

Preclinical studies of cannabinoids have investigated the following:

Antitumor activity

Studies in mice and rats have shown that cannabinoids may inhibit tumor growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumors to grow. Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

A study in mice showed that cannabinoids may protect against inflammation of the colon and may have potential in reducing the risk of colon cancer, and possibly in its treatment.

A laboratory study of delta-9-THC in hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) cells showed that it damaged or killed the cancer cells. The same study of delta-9-THC in mouse models of liver cancer showed that it had antitumor effects. Delta-9-THC has been shown to cause these effects by acting on molecules that may also be found in non-small cell lung cancer cells and breast cancer cells.

A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in estrogen receptor positive and estrogen receptor negative breast cancer cells showed that it caused cancer cell death while having little effect on normal breast cells. Studies in mouse models of metastatic breast cancer showed that cannabinoids may lessen the growth, number, and spread of tumors.

A review of 34 studies of cannabinoids in glioma tumor models found that all but one study showed that cannabinoids can kill cancer cells without harming normal cells.
A laboratory study of cannabidiol (CBD) in human glioma cells showed that when given along with chemotherapy, CBD may make chemotherapy more effective and increase cancer cell death without harming normal cells. Studies in mouse models of cancer showed that CBD together with delta-9-THC may make chemotherapy such as temozolomide more effective.
