2019 predictions: Mystic prophecies and forewarnings as New Year approaches | Weird | News





The New Year will be the most tumultuous one yet if the various prophecies made by mystics and prophets over the last 500 years come to pass. From Nostradamus to Baba Vanga, and doomsday preachers believe some form of cataclysm is bound to happen in the near future. Even modern psychics who rely on their prophetic visions or divinate from vegetables are certain 2019 will go down in the history books. With just nine hours to go before the UK welcomes the New Year, here are some of the most shocking and bizarre predictions made for 2019.

Vladimir Putin will survive an assassination attempt in 2019 – Baba Vanga

According to Bulgarian mystic Baba Vanga, the so-called Balkan Nostradamus, Russian President Vladimir Putin will come under attack from someone within his own ranks.

The Russian leader who claims to have already survived at least four attempts on his life in the past is currently under the protection of an elite sniper unit.

But if Baba Vanga’s prophecy comes to pass, Mr Putin will have to suffer the betrayal of someone very close to him.

Charlotte Dobre of the InformationOverload YouTube channel said: “In the coming year, she said that there will be an assassination attempt on Vladimir Putin by a member of his own security team and Europe will experience an economic collapse.”

The outbreak of World War 3 – Nostradamus

The French apothecary, writer and supposed clairvoyant is believed to have correctly warned the world of the rise of Adolf Hitler to power as early as 1555.

Nostradamus’ followers purport the French mystic had powers of divination which allowed him to foretell the future in cryptic passages know as quatrains.

One of these quatrains is said to predict the outbreak of a global conflict which will ravage the world for 27 years.

Nostradamus wrote: “Twice put up and twice cast down, the East will also weaken the West. Its adversary after several battles chased by sea will fail at time of need.

“The great man will be struck down in the day by a thunderbolt. An evil deed, foretold by the bearer of a petition.”

A US recession will have a global impact – Jemima Packington

Jemima Packington, who claims to be the world’s leading Asparamancer, believes economic crisis will hit the US next year.

As an Asparamancer, Ms Packington claims to see the future in spears of asparagus tossed into the air.

Ms Packington said: “I’m able to interpret the patterns left by the asparagus. When I cast the asparagus, it creates patterns and it is the patterns I interpret.”

The Asparamancer claimed the trade war between the US and China will peacefully resolve next year, Big Brother will return to TV and England’s rugby and cricket teams will enjoy success.

Donald Trump will suffer a mysterious illness – Craig Hamilton-Parker

Psychic and medium Craig Hamilton-Parker claims to have had a vision of US President Donald Trump falling gravely ill in 2019.

Mr Hamilton-Parker said: “I feel, talking of Donald Trump, that he will be taken ill during 2019 but I don’t think this will be a major, serious thing that will take him out of his presidency or anything like that.

“I don’t think it’s life-threatening but it’s maybe something like a perforated bowel came to mind? Something like that.

“Something quite serious but not going to kill you. He may be unable to do the job for a short period of time.”

A biblical harbinger of the end times will grace the skies – Pastor Paul Begley

The evangelical preacher from West Lafayette, Indiana, said: “I’m not saying on January 22 all hell’s going to break loose, right after the Blood Moon, and then again I’m not saying it won’t.

“I truly believe America is going to face some type of disaster and that this Super Blood Moon is a serious harbinger of these last days.”

Ottawa families give mixed reviews for online schooling





So, how’s it going with online school? Families reached by CBC Ottawa seem to have mixed reviews. 

Masuma Khan is a mother of two. Her seven-year-old, Hana Wyndham in Grade 2, is attending French immersion virtual school. Masuma is grateful it’s an option, but can’t help notice a lot of down time.

“There’s a lot of, ‘are you on mute?’ In terms of the amount of learning that’s actually happening, it does seem to be not that high,” said Masuma.

Parents who kept their children at home this fall are in the minority, but they still form a significant chunk of families in Ottawa.

In the city’s largest school board, the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (OCDSB), about 27 per cent of elementary students and 22 per cent of high school students chose online learning. The Ottawa Catholic School Board says roughly a quarter of its students are online.

For Masuma, the decision to keep her daughter home was complex: extended family members are immunocompromised and she worried the in-person learning environment would be unpleasant because of precautions. She also felt her daughter might benefit from being supported at home.

“She doesn’t necessarily enjoy school. I also found out during the pandemic that she was being bullied [last year],” said Masuma. “So I thought, why not try from home?”

To help her daughter socialize face-to-face with other kids, Masuma enrolled Hana in Baxter Forest School, an alternative education program where kids spend most of their time outside, one day a week. Hana also attends virtual Arabic classes two days a week after school. 

Masuma’s husband and Hana share the living room work space, and Masuma admits he does the lion’s share of helping their daughter stay on task. There is a possibility that he’ll be required to return to his office in the new year.

“When he goes back to work … it’s probably going to be a little bit more difficult.”

No school closures after Christmas holiday break, says Ontario education minister





Ontario elementary and secondary schools will not close for an extended winter break, says Education Minister Stephen Lecce.

Closures aren’t needed given Ontario’s “strong safety protocols, low levels of (COVID-19) transmission and safety within our schools,” Lecce announced Wednesday afternoon. He said he had consulted with Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. David Williams and the province’s public health measures advisory table.

That ended speculation about school buildings remaining closed in January for a period of time after the Christmas break.

Earlier in the week, Lecce told reporters the government was considering having students spend “some period out of class” in January, perhaps switching to online learning.

In a statement, Lecce said that even though rates of community transmission of COVID-19 are increasing, “schools have been remarkably successful at minimizing outbreaks to ensure that our kids stay safe and learning in their classrooms.”
