Dead Sea being eaten by sinkholes: huge chasms appearing in the region at a rate of one per day

(TEP) – The Dead Sea is drying up at an incredible rate leaving huge chasms of empty space in its wake. These chasms appear in the form of large, devastating sinkholes and are increasing in number throughout the region. Experts claim they are now forming at a rate of nearly one a day, but have no way of knowing when or how they will show up. Estimates by Moment magazine suggest that, on the Israeli side alone, there are now over 3,000 sinkholes around the Dead Sea.

This compares to just 40 counted in 1990, with the first sinkhole appearing in the 1980s. The Dead Sea spans more than 60 miles through Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan. Its waters are 10 times saltier than the northern Atlantic Ocean because it has no outlet. This means that any minerals that flow there, stay there.

Fed Delays Bond “Tapering”, Obama, ‘Raising the Debt Ceiling…Does Not Increase Our Debt’

WEB Notes: The engineered collapse of the financial system has been delayed. Had the war in Syria kicked into high gear you better believe a different decision would have been made.

(Yahoo) – The Federal Reserve has decided against reducing its stimulus for the U.S. economy, saying it will continue to buy $85 billion a month in bonds because it thinks the economy still needs the support.

The Fed said in a statement Wednesday that it held off on tapering because it wants to see more conclusive evidence that the recovery will be sustained.

Germany confirms it supplied over 100 tons of ‘dual-use’ chemicals to Syria

WEB Notes: Of course they did, Syria did not make it themselves. The UK did as well and we covered that topic several weeks back.

(RT) – German officials have confirmed that Berlin sent chemicals to Syria that could potentially be used to make sarin gas. The government stressed, however, that it is confident the “dual-use” chemicals were not used for military purposes.

Germany exported more than 100 tons of potential ingredients for the deadly gas between 2002 and 2006.

“The permits [for delivery of the chemicals] were granted after a thorough examination of all potential risks, including the dangers of misuse and redirection with a view to possible use in connection with chemical weapons,” Germany’s Ministry of Economy said in a statement responding to a formal request from the socialist Left Party.

Grading Obamacare: Why the Government Should (and Shouldn’t) Control Health Care Coverage

WEB Notes: ObamaCare is so great, Obama and Congress are opting out. If they, as our public servants have that choice, should you not have that same choice? Henry Blodget quoted in this article must be a dullard to say the least. What government program has ever ran with success? Our Social Security? No. Our Medicare? No. How about the Postal Service? NO! The government fails because there is too much corruption. They have no skin in the game, it is not their money they have to spend, it is yours, so there is no incentive to save it.
(Yahoo) – Drastic changes to employee health care plans are underway ahead of the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Walgreen Co. (WAG), the nation’s largest drugstore chain, told its 160,000 employees Wednesday that their health care benefits are changing. The company is moving workers to a private health insurance exchange, one that “provides more health coverage choices and an opportunity for most employees to lower their out-of-pocket health care costs next year,” according to a press release. Walgreen employees will be given a cash subsidy that allows them to purchase their coverage directly from carriers.
