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

Prominent Christian preacher and doomsday prophet Paul Begley is certain an upcoming Blood Moon lunar eclipse in January 2019 was foretold by the Bible.

I truly believe America is going to face some type of disaster

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.”

When Ontario declared a COVID-19 health emergency last spring, the first instinct of Ottawa entrepreneur Peter O’Blenis was to preserve cash.

“We basically stopped our discretionary spending,” said O’Blenis, the co-founder and CEO of Evidence Partners, which makes software for accelerating the review of scientific and medical literature, using artificial intelligence. “We cut investments in things meant to help us grow.”

It was a defensive posture born of experience. O’Blenis had 12 years earlier nearly been crushed by the global financial crisis. Another looked to be on the way.

In 2008, O’Blenis and his colleagues, Jonathan Barker and Ian Stefanison, hit a brick wall with their first venture, TrialStat, which helped hospitals manage patients’ electronic data. While TrialStat had secured $5.5 million in venture financing just a couple of years earlier, the founders had burned through most of it during a rapid expansion. When the financial world collapsed, so did their firm.

The trio played things far more conservatively with Evidence Partners, which has relied almost exclusively on customer revenues to finance expansion.

The caution proved unnecessary. Like so many other businesses, O’Blenis underestimated the government’s willingness to keep the economy afloat with easy money. Nor did he anticipate that COVID-19 would prove a significant catalyst for the firm’s revenues so soon.

Evidence Partners is hardly the only local firm with technology particularly suited for the war against COVID-19. Spartan Bioscience and DNA Genotek adapted existing products to create technology for identifying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Ottawa-based units of Abbott Laboratories and Siemens Healthineers make portable blood analyzers that diagnose patients afflicted by the virus.

Shepherds of Good Hope wants to expand ByWard Market operation with eight-storey housing complex





The Shepherds of Good Hope plans to build an eight-storey building near its current shelter for the homeless in the ByWard Market that would include supportive housing for up to 48 people, a soup kitchen and a drop-in centre.

The organization says it wants to be part of the solution to the housing crisis that has fuelled a rise in homelessness in Ottawa.

People would be moved out of the emergency shelters and into their own tiny apartments in the complex, which would include a communal dining hall and staff available to help with mental health, addiction and medical problems, said Caroline Cox, senior manager of communications for the Shepherds.

Some residents in the neighbourhood are opposed, saying services for the homeless and vulnerable should not be concentrated in one area of the city.

“I was flabbergasted,” said homeowner Brian Nolan, who lives one block from the development proposed for 216 Murray St., where currently a one-story building houses offices for the Shepherds of Good Hope.

Nolan said that, in the 15 years he’s lived in the area, it has become increasingly unsafe, with home and car thefts, drug dealing, loitering, aggressive and erratic behaviour, urinating, defecating and vomiting on sidewalks and yards and sexual acts conducted in public on his dead-end street. Before he lets his son play basketball in the yard, he checks the ground for needles and his home security camera to see who is nearby.

Carleton University Hosts the Forum Lecture: Towards a Feminist Post-COVID City





evehe Carleton University Forum Lecture: Towards a Feminist Post-COVID City given by Leslie Kern launches Ottawa Architecture Week. Urban geographer, author and academic, Kern will discuss how the pandemic has highlighted long-standing inequalities in the design, use and inclusivity of urban spaces.

About the Speaker

Kern is the author of two books on gender and cities, including Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World (Verso). The book discusses how our cities have failed in terms of fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, the joy and perils of being alone, and also imagines what they could become.

Kern argues, “The pandemic has shown us that society can be radically reorganized if necessary. Let’s carry that lesson into creating the non-sexist city.”
