Earthquakes, volcanoes, asteroids to DESTROY Earth as meteor hits Blood Moon – shock claim | Weird | News

As the moon took on its red colouring following a partial lunar eclipse, known as a blood moon, on Sunday, January 20, eagle-eyed viewers were treated to another dazzling display as a meteorite hit. The flash was so quick it took almost three days for amateur and professional astronomers to notice it in reviewed footage – but some warn that the damage will be eternal. Some Christian conspiracy theorists believe that the meteorite hitting the blood moon was written about in Biblical texts, and that it is a dire warning.

Believers point to the passage Revelation 6:12-14 which reads: “I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; and the stars of the sky fell to the Earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.

“The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.”

Christian conspiracy site believes these predictions are not starting to come true, and the meteorite hitting the moon is a precursor for asteroids hitting Earth – IE the “stars of the sky” will fall.

The website reads: “There would be a ‘great earthquake’ that would literally shake the foundations of the earth moving mountains and even islands.

“In addition to the earthquake, there will either be a possible eclipse of the sun or a massive volcanic explosion that will darken the sun, that the Prophet Joel mentions.

“But along with the blood moon mentioned by the Apostle John, he says that ‘stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind.’ This suggest that there will be several asteroids hitting the Earth.

“And Jesus may have even been referring to these when in His description of the end-times, the Lord warned about ‘terrors and great signs from the skies’.

“An asteroid hitting our recent Super Wolf Blood Moon is not what John prophesied, he said several asteroids would be hitting the earth.

“But is this a subtle forewarning of what is to come or just a coincidence?”

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.

Kern holds a PhD in Women’s Studies from York University. She is currently an associate professor of Geography and Environment and director of Women’s and Gender Studies at Mount Allison University.

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.”
