Protecting Marijuana’s $2.7 Billion Cash Industry When Banks Won’t

Published on Feb 17, 2015

Thanks to recreational legalization in Colorado and Washington, the U.S. marijuana industry exploded from $1.5 billion to $2.7 billion in one year. But now, businesses making hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars a week are facing a serious problem: There’s nowhere to stash all the money.

Cuba Libre Updates: The Blockade; Migration

For the record, I seldom agree with anything the UN does. In fact I am against the UN period. But when they do something right I’ll admit that also.  I am 100% against the blockade of Cuba. It hasn’t hurt the Castro Brothers.  It’s time this unjust bullying policy against the people of Cuba ends. . . EDITOR

Again, UN General Assembly rejects U.S anti-Cuban blockade

The United Nations General Assembly voted Oct. 28 for the 23rd consecutive year on a Cuba resolution calling upon the United States to end its economic blockade against the island. The results highlight U.S. isolation in the diplomatic community; 188 UN nations voted “Yes,” and only two, the United States and Israel, rejected the resolution. . . Read Complete Report

Cuban ‘exodus’ blamed on failed reforms

Despite a marked increase in Cubans arriving by sea off South Florida, the U.S. Coast Guard says it does not anticipate a Mariel boatlift-type of crisis any time soon.

Between the 2,059 Cubans stopped at sea trying to land on shore and the more than 800 who actually made it here, there has been a 75 percent increase in attempted and successful migration from last fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30. . . . Read Complete Report

According to reports in the Canadian press, simply admitting to a U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agent that you’ve smoked pot or that you plan to smoke pot apparently can get you turned away at the border — and perhaps permanently banned from the good ol’ U.S. of A because marijuana is still illegal under federal laws. . .  Read Complete Report

Back in October, we shared with you the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s draft regulations for the growing of industrial hemp. Now, those regulations are official — with one change. Instead of facing a registration suspension or revocation if testing reveals that a grower’s plants exceed 0.3 percent THC, the final rules say that a grower will not be subject to any penalty as long as the “crop is destroyed or utilized in a manner approved of and verified by” the state agriculture commissioner.

Excerpts
  • What happened to comet ISON? Is it still alive?
  • Great question, and we recommend you find a comet expert to answer that. … [crickets] … Sigh, OK I guess that’s us. Well we don’t have a very clear answer yet but there are a couple of things we can say for sure. First, during its passage through the Sun’s million-degree corona, its dusty/gassy coma got very much burned away, though clearly some fine dust survived (which is the fine cloudy stuff you see being pushed away from the Sun). Second, something did emerge from the corona. It could be a comet, or just the remains of what once was. We can’t tell right now.Certainly there’s lots of dust, and Matthew and I hesitantly lean towards thinking that there’s something there producing dust, but that could be a small nucleus, or it could be a pile of rubble and comet chunks that will dissipate in the coming days. The key thing we need to find out — and as yet we have no data about this as ISON is too faint and close to the Sun — is whether there is any gas being produced. If there’s gas, there’s almost certainly an active nucleus; if there’s almost no gas then probably no nucleus. . . . Read Complete Report

САНКТ-ПЕТЕРБУРГ, 29 ноября. /Корр. ИТАР-ТАСС Наталия Михальченко/. Яркие метеорные потоки и даже новый метеорит на головы землян под Новый год обещает “подарить” комета ISON после прохождения вблизи Солнца, когда она мгновенно изменилась, как “Снегурочка, прыгнувшая через костер”.
According to this just released report from the Information Telegraph Agency of Russia (ITAR-TASS) which is translated here, the remnants of Comet ISON are slowing down and have changed direction. An intensification of meteor showers is expected as a ‘Christmas gift’ and a ‘meteorite falling to Earth’ cannot be excluded due to the slowing down of the comet and a general scattering of the comets’ prior composition. The very interesting video report below is alarming.

“Christmas gift” from the comet

Such a transformation at the Pulkovo Observatory compared with “Maiden jump over the fire,” and it threatens to become a surprise for earthlings. According to Smirnov, the destruction of the comet led to a sharp drop in speed and change direction of movement of its parts. Whether Comet ISON unharmed, she crossed to the Earth’s orbit on December 24 at 65 million miles from Earth, without causing us any concern. But due to a general slowdown cloud movement compared with the nucleus and the backlog separate debris from the head of it crosses the path of the earth around the sun a week later, just before the New Year, and meet with our planet.

This may seem like a bright flash in the sky tiny meteors, they will burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere as a farewell smile our” Maiden. “But we can not exclude more formidable phenomena such as meteor shower, “- said Smirnov

New: Where to view Comet ISON’s encounter with the Sun.

Comet C/2012 S1 was discovered in September 2012 by Russian astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok using data from the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON). For that reason, it is also known as Comet ISON. This comet is on a close encounter with the Sun on November 28, 2013 (Thanksgiving day in the U.S.), when it will pass at a distance of only 2.7 solar radii from the center of the Sun. Since Comet ISON was discovered so far out, beyond the orbit of Jupiter, and will pass so close to the Sun, many think that this could turn out to be a major comet. A number of NASA missions, including STEREO, are planning an observing campaign to observe the comet as it passes by the Sun. Below, we discuss the view that the STEREO observatories (plus SOHO and SDO) will have of Comet ISON as it swings by the Sun. On a separate page, we discuss the observing strategies and anticipated science of the STEREO instruments.

If Comet ISON works out as expected, the STEREO spacecraft should have a spectacular view. The movie below shows the geometry of the STEREO Ahead (red) and Behind (blue) spacecraft during the passage of Comet ISON (orange). The top panel shows the view from above looking down on the orbital plane of the planets (the ecliptic plane), while the bottom panel shows the view from the side. Note that the comet’s orbital path is highly inclined to the ecliptic plane. As the comet approaches the Sun, it comes in at a fairly shallow angle, but leaves at a much steeper one, carrying it well above the ecliptic plane. If one only looked at the top-down view, it looks like the comet passes close to the Earth around the end of December, but the view from the side shows that this is not really the case. . . .

Comet ISON Fizzles?

Published on Nov 28, 2013

These images from NASA’s Solar Terrestrial Relations Observatory and the ESA/NASA Solar and Heliospheric Observatory show Comet ISON growing dim as it made the journey around the sun. The comet was not visible at all in NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory. The comet is believed to have broken up and evaporated.

While this means that Comet ISON will not be visible in the night sky in December, the wealth of observations gathered of the comet over the last year will provide great research opportunities for some time. One important question will simply be to figure out why it is no longer visible.

11/28/13– Initially, scientists thought that Comet ISON disintegrated after its encounter with the sun earlier today. Now, some astronomers believe that remnants of the comet may have survived, as evidenced by imaging from the SOHO spacecraft. More at NPR and CBS News.
