For the first time in decades, the U.S. is no longer the largest economy in the world, and China has become number one, the International Monetary Fund says.

The IMF recently released the latest numbers for the world economy, stating that China will produce $17.6 trillion in terms of goods and services–  compared with $17.4 trillion for the U.S.

Just 14 years ago, the U.S. produced nearly three times as much as the Chinese, Dow Jones’ MarketWatch reported. . . . Read Complete Report

History

CUMBERLAND CAVERNS is one of the most extensive caves known in Tennessee. Portions of this system were originally known as Higgenbotham Cave and Henshaw Cave, but integration of these two caves plus considerable exploration of previously unvisited sections has in the past several years considerably enlarged the cave.  More than 32 miles are now known.

Aaron Higgenbotham, a surveyor, discovered Higgenbotham Cave in 1810.  Venturing into the cave alone, he was trapped for three days on a high ledge when his torch went out.  According to local legend, when a rescue party reached him, his hair had turned white.. . . Visit Web Site page.

Curator’s Note:

Bluegrass Underground is a musical adventure series that shines a light on purveyors of musical authenticity in a space unlike any other on (or under) earth. Bluegrass Underground emanates from the Volcano Room, a subterranean amphitheatre 333 feet below McMinnville, Tennessee at Cumberland Caverns. The acoustic properties of the Volcano Room are singular. In fact the room only resonates at 2 frequencies meaning that experiencing live music there is akin to attending a concert inside a recording studio. . . . Visit Web Site

EARTH ~ World’s Largest Subwoofer? Earthquakes ‘Pump’ Ground to Produce Infrasound

This needs further study.

They tell me the earth is basically full of hot and cold matter.  However, every sub-woofer I’ve ever seen was hollow. In fact it’s that ‘hollow’ in the sub-woofer that has a lot to do with that deep bass sound everyone is looking for.  For a sub-woofer to work it has to have a hollow area behind the speaker.

My question; where in the accepted theory of the makeup of our planet is the hollow part of – quote “The world’s largest sub-woofer?” end-quote. 

If our planet is the ‘world’s biggest sub-woofer’ then it must have the ‘worlds biggest hollow spot’ to make it work. And of course, those interested in Gardner’s Hollow Earth theory would want to know about the small round hole in the speaker box that must be there for a subwoofer to work.

Earth, world’s largest sub-woofer Hollow with a small circular hole in the body. What say you Hollow Earthers?. .  . EDITOR

ScienceDaily (Oct. 18, 2012) — Earthquakes sway buildings, buckle terrain, and rumble — both audibly and in infrasound, frequencies below the threshold of human hearing. New computer modeling by a team of researchers indicates that most of the low-frequency infrasound comes from an unexpected source: the actual “pumping” of Earth’s surface. The researchers confirmed their models by studying data from an actual earthquake.

“It’s basically like a loudspeaker,” said Stephen Arrowsmith, a researcher with the Geophysics Group at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Santa Fe, N.M., who presents his team’s findings at the 164th meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA), held Oct. 22 — 26 in Kansas City, Missouri. “In much the same way that a subwoofer vibrates air to create deep and thunderous base notes, earthquakes pump and vibrate the atmosphere producing sounds below the threshold of human hearing. . . .

August 14, 2012, Tuesday

Bulgarian archaeologists expect to find at the holy rock city of Perperikon the largest ever medieval coin treasure in the country.

The announcement was made by leading Bulgarian archaeologist, Prof. Nikolay Ovcharov, after his team recently found a total 11 gold and 6 silver coins.

The gold coins are from the 14th century while the silver ones are from the end of the 13th century.

The coins have been found dispersed in what has been used as a toilet hole with a 2-meter diameter, leading the experts to believe that they were hidden and buried during the Ottoman invasion of the area. Such treasures were usually placed in clay pots or similar vessels and then concealed, while for the latest find it is believed that the coins were put in some sort of a purse, which has decomposed over the years. . . .
