Chances are, you're tired. You're busy, your mind is swarming and your day is crowded. Every day, day after day, it's always something. Be honest: Do you find yourself tossing and turning at night?

Here is proof the ancients possessed “secret technology” that made them exceptional worriers. They might even have had the capability to annihilate their formidable foes utilizing nuclear-like devices.

The question is how did they come about such an innovative science?
Did they develop such devices on their own? Did God give the “chosen” unheralded power over their enemies? Or were ancient astronauts somehow involved?

David Medina, along with Sean Casteel, Tim Beckley, Olav Phillips, Brad Steiger and Tim R. Swartz tackle an intriguing subject that gives evidence to the fact that the ancients had supernatural powers that were often lethal. For the first time, here is a detailed analysis of the mysterious Ark of the Covenant. Learn how the Ark was built and housed, and how the priests that tended it were required to wear protection clothing to shield them from what we call today nuclear energy. Moses even used the Ark to create a “controlled earthquake” to punish a rebellion by some of the Israelites. The desert ground opened up and swallowed the rebels, and of course it is said to have been responsible for the collapse of the walls of Jericho.

Discover also astounding air battles, and a very advanced type of “Thunderbolt Energy” that caused catastrophic disasters. There are also the issues of Magical Swords and superior aircraft mentioned in various ancient texts. This work contains fascinating insight into high-tech, death-dealing devices that predate our own by millennia. Did humankind develop such an “advanced technology” on its own? Or did beings for other worlds we have come to identify as Ancient Astronauts responsible for such a wondrous but catastrophic advance in the military sciences and weaponry?

Health Through Chaos is a personal journey through cancer, and my eventual return to health. Shortly after I turned 53, I had my first colonoscopy as part of my yearly physical. Thirty seconds into the procedure, the doctor found colon cancer. I spent the next 2 years having multiple surgeries, radiation, and over a year of chemotherapy. I am happy and blessed to be cancer free, with the sincere hope of remaining so.

The most shocking part of the experience was to discover that once the treatments were over, my journey had just begun. Healing my body and soul was a long and arduous process with little guidance or help. I had to discover how to get well on my own, and after 3 years of daily effort, found myself well again.
My book is about that part of the journey, sharing what I discovered, my triumphs and my mistakes. It was not a journey of finding the one ‘right thing’ to do but rather discovering that there is no one thing. There are many facets of wellness and some are obvious and some very small, but each is vital. It’s a personal journey, but an empowering and life altering one.

This book is not intended for cancer patients only. It is intended for anyone hoping to regain their health and for people who have never been healthy.

A new and different way of looking at dreams…

Dreams are the problem child of modern psychology. For thousands of years considered the voice of the Gods; nowadays considered the folly of teenage girls and new-agers. Many have tried to unlock their secrets; but somehow the fanciful symbols, predictions and insights we’ve grown accustomed to never quite satisfy.

Anders Johansson connects common sense with ancient wisdom to deliver a brand new perspective on dreams. Dream to Survive explains the purpose and meaning of dreams and reveals new principles for dream interpretation. The bravura theory behind this dream dictionary will help you understand your dreams and even show you how to predict future trends.

Rainbow Laser Grimoire is an intense journey through surrealist thought, philosophy, short stories, prose, and wild hallucination-induced fantasy.

"Today I will combine skepticism with optimism in my search for a happier truth."

Home Groupies is a ‘thought for the day’ book in the form of a novella. Rather than being spoken by a disembodied voice, the daily messages arise from the lives of flesh and blood characters. They struggle with their own issues as they deal with their friend Sharon's struggle with cancer.

"Today I will accept sometimes I am powerless over that which is most precious and painful."

David, a fifty-something, bipolar, entrepreneur. David cheats on his third wife with a ‘newbie’ half his age who is pregnant by her married boyfriend. What’s unreal is not the soap opera life he leads, but his rock solid belief in himself.
“Before you judge me, think about this with an open mind. I am keeping her from hooking up with more predatory men. I am showing her that she can enjoy herself without using drugs. Because my needs are being met elsewhere, I am taking the pressure off my wife. All the while, I am sharing my knowledge of Twelve Step programs and how they work..."

Skipping through the whole narrative is a little girl, Chanel, who has seen way too much, but whose spirit cannot be crushed:
“Small for her age, Chanel was seven, going on thirty, going on three. She would tell you with great pride she had completed second grade and could name all fifty states. Chanel had seen the police and paramedics come for her mother. She knew the smell of crack smoke, and how to be invisible when adults thought someone had stolen their drugs. She wanted to be held, and to know when she would see you again.”
Sue is the most prominent of the female characters. She never smoked a cigarette in her life, and had the tenacity to become the first female president of the local carpenters’ union. Sue is dying of lung cancer. She struggles with two issues: being scared out of her toughness, and her anger at the unfairness of it all.
Sharon, Sue’s best friend, accepts the unfairness of Sue’s situation, but worries about her other friends. Sharon’s biggest regret is that she was born too late for Woodstock. She is fluent in eastern philosophy, and mystified others don't share her appreciation for the mystical.

No To Nuclear

If I haven't said it enough, I am about as Anti-Frack as one can be.  In my opinion we shouldn't be just limiting where fracking is permitted, we should be banning it all together.  And in time I feel we should take that same approach to coal and other fossil fuel dependent forms of energy production.  Looking at the headlines lately, I would say that a great deal of American's agree with me, at least where Fracking is concerned.

In an effort to escape the clutches of fossil fuel dependency our government has taken steps funding Nuclear Energy options.  They are touting nuclear energy as "safe" and "green."  In other words, they are lying straight to our faces!

Oh how short the memories of politicians (and a great many citizens) are.  Nuclear power is "green" compared with fossil fuel related pollution.  But lets think for a moment what is "green" power?  What does it mean to be "green?"  In my mind, and I believe in the minds of most Americans, it means "eco-friendly" or "Earth Friendly," which Nuclear Power is NOT!  IF we skip over discussing all of the dangers associated with accidents, and purely focus on what happens with properly working nuclear power plants, we still have some rather horrific issues to discuss.  And of course that means we don't mention all of the inevitable accidents and mistakes which take place whenever humans and nature get involved in anything.

In fact, even when handled properly and without ever being affected by natural or man made disasters, the post fission waste products are extremely toxic (and radioactive) to everything surrounding their disposal sites.  Ground and Water toxicity are common near both waste storage sites and surrounding the plants themselves.  Radiation surrounding plants and storage sites have lead to HUGE spikes in cancers, plant deaths, water contamination and mass animal die offs.

And of course that's all ignoring the fact that Nuclear Power has a tendency to blow up in our faces!  Think, if you will, back just a few short years to the Fukushima disaster.  Nothing the staff did was improper.  In fact from what all reports have said the plant was run extremely well and there was no foreseeable risk of disaster prior to the disaster.  But as usual, Mother Nature had her own agenda which ended in a complete meltdown in March 2011, from which we have not recovered.

Although all of the relocations, injuries and deaths associated with the Fukushima disaster are NOT directly linked to the atomic meltdown, the fact is this - Those living within 12 miles of the plant had to be evacuated from the surrounding area, few of which will ever have any hopes of reclaiming their homes. And of course because of it's placement along the ocean, we are STILL hearing warnings about eating fish coming out of Pacific waters...  Radiation from the disaster didn't just affect those local to it though, in fact radiation warnings were announced even as far away as Southern California.

Rewind back a few more years to the 1986 and we find another major disaster associated with Nuclear Power.  Chernobyl is possibly the most well known nuclear disaster as it's remains have become popular among the many programs which focus on the decay of abandoned man made structure.

The Remains of Reactor 4, Chernobyl
Unlike the disaster in 2011, Chernobyl was not caused by the wrath of Mother Nature, but was purely man made.  According to reports from USSR officials there was a "sudden and unexpected" power surge.  Workers attempted an emergency shutdown which caused an much larger spike in power output which then lead to a reactor vessel rupture and a series of explosions.  As a result the graphite moderator of the reactor became exposed to the air and ignited. The radioactive fallout set off alarms in a nuclear plant in Switzerland and have since lead to the evacuation of over 350,000 people from what their governments believe to be the most severely contaminated areas of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. It's worth noting that these evacuations are ONGOING!

The death toll related to Chernobyl is difficult to track down.  The direct death toll from the accident has been completely limited to the reactor staff and emergency workers, at 31 individuals.  Since that time the "official" number has climbed to 64 as of 2008. But, the eventual death toll estimates reach as high as 4000 from radiation related illnesses and injuries. It's worth noting though that this estimate ONLY takes in to account deaths, and makes no mention of the thousands of individuals who have been affected by thyroid, immune system and brain damage related to radiation and chemical exposures following the disaster. Nor does it take in to account those who are affected YEARS after by ingesting affected foods and waters or living in areas which were exposed to low levels of radiation or other contaminations but which were never evacuated (or weren't evacuated soon enough.)

Of course these disasters didn't happen here, and with few exceptions they didn't directly affect the American population.  So it's easy to brush these off or include them in to the "other" category when discussing all the reasons why Nuclear Energy should be cautioned.  In fact, when discussing Nuclear Energy with my American peers I'm often surprised to hear that these examples are seen as something that won't or can't happen here. There are arguments like "American's wouldn't make those mistakes" or "America doesn't have tsunamis" or others similar statements which seem to imply that while the Japanese and Ukranians can make mistakes, Americans are somehow exempt...

The Three Mile Island Accident in Progress
Which of course brings me to the topic of Three Mile Island.  Raise your hand if you remember that one!  NO? That's most likely because unless you are a member of my mother's generation or older, you've never heard of it - or don't really have any understanding of what happened even if you heard the name. No, as a rule it's not something our government prefers for us to talk about. But in fact, it was our very own Nuclear Disaster.

So what happened?  Well, it began with failures to a secondary (non-nuclear) system, and then one of the pilot-operated relief valves in the primary system got stuck open. This lead to the escape of a large amount of reactor coolant.  Due to a lack of proper training and inept design plant operators failed to identify the accident as loss-of-coolant soon enough. Because the accident was not properly classified, when the automatic emergency cooling system started, an operator manually overrode the program, believing there was too much coolant water present in the reactor.  This lead to a steam pressure build up and release. This a partial meltdown resulted in the release of an unknown amount of radioactive gasses and iodine.  It was eventually rated a 5 out of 7 on the International Nuclear Event Scale.  The cleanup took 14 years and over a BILLION dollars of tax payer money.

Thankfully, it was not on the scale of Chernobyl or Fukushima and there have been very few directly related deaths.  However there HAVE been a great number of cancer and other health related illnesses linked to the disaster in the area surrounding the plant.  As our government so often does however, they have held tight to the idea that there is no correlation between higher cancer and illness rates in that area and the 1979 nuclear disaster.  They are now claiming that the disaster which took place on Three Mile Island was ever of any danger to the public.  Their claims however are at extreme odds with the facts of the incident.

Toxic water, toxic soil, radiated plants, higher rates of disease and cancer in humans and animals...  None of these things occur with truly "green" energy forms!  I'm not going to say there aren't some issues with wind, hydro and solar electric issues, because they aren't perfect.  But when there's a solar spill, people don't die - hell, they go out and play...

So my question now becomes WHY is our government putting BILLIONS more into the development of new Nuclear Power sites instead of energy sources which are truly ecologically friendly?  In my opinion, it's all about the money!  Energy sources such as water, wind and sun light have low long term income potentiality.  It's sad, but true!  And from where I sit, there are just two ways this renewed love of nuclear power is going to end - 1.) we the people step up, in mass, and refuse to support it or 2.) a massive disaster forces the reality of nuclear disaster to be realized.  I for one would prefer not to see yet another disaster, so it's time step up, put our foot down and tell Washington - NO TO NUCLEAR!!!
