From Zero Hedge:
[Thursday], the rumor turned out to be a joke. Today, there was no rumor, but as we warned, it was only a matter of time.
Less than four hours later, the time has come, and Jon Hilsenrath’s “Fed Maps Exit from Stimulus,” conveniently appearing after the close, has just been released.
From Hilsy… pointing out what everyone already knew:
Federal Reserve officials have mapped out a strategy for winding down an [...]
Wall Street Journal reporter John Hilsenrath is so plugged in at the Federal Reserve that he has earned the nickname “Fed Wire.”
Whenever the Fed wants to start sending a new message to Wall Street, the story goes, they call up John Hilsenrath.
And then, thanks to Hilsenrath’s excellent articles, by the time the actual announcement comes out, it’s no big deal, because everyone already knows about it.
And now John Hilsenrath is reporting [...]
Still recovering from the backlash to its flawed Maps app, Apple is looking to beef up the iPhone’s indoor location capabilities by acquiring WiFiSlam. According to The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the deal, Apple paid $20 million to scoop up the two-year-old startup based in Silicon Valley.
As per usual for Apple, which made a splash when it bought Siri back in 2010, the company didn’t provide any details as to why [...]
Saint, Louis, Missouri. Bethlehem, PA. Florida. Louisiana. It seems pretty fucking obvious doesn’t it?
Cayce and the creator of the US Navy map were onto something. Whether it was psychic ability, or an uncanny knowledge of geology, we are on the cusp of a civilization changing event.
The threat of severe thunderstorms is about to return as a strong cold front emerges from the Rockies and intercepts milder air returning to the nation’s midsection.
This pattern will be favorable for thunderstorms to produce damaging winds and possible tornadoesTuesday and Wednesday in parts of the South, lower Midwest, and eventually the Mid-Atlantic region.
The maps on this page show the latest timing forecast for these storms from The Weather Channel’s Global Forecast Center.
BREAKING NEWS: ATTEMPTED GUN BURGLARY TIED TO JOURNAL NEWS GUN MAPS
Sen. Ball renews call for immediate removal of maps and unveils legislation
Law enforcement plans rally to hold Journal News Accountable
Brewster, N.Y. – 1/13/2013 – Today Senator Greg Ball (Patterson – R, C, I) announced that a burglary has been reported on Davis Ave. in White Plains, New York that evidently ties into The Journal News gun maps. It is reported [...]
Reformed crooks say the New York newspaper that published a map of names and addresses of gun owners did a great service – to their old cronies in the burglary trade.
The information published online by the Journal-News, a daily paper serving the New York suburbs of Westchester, Rockland and Putnam counties, could be highly useful to thieves in two ways, former burglars told FoxNews.com. Crooks looking to avoid getting shot [...]
Symbols, shapes, sygils, matter to them. Which is how they channel the dark energies. Why did they go and make a school look like a handgun? This is so in-your-face! Is another shooting incident planned here? By whom? Or is this some kind of a subliminal back-up assist that helps the gun control issue? Whether you are an American or no, this is very shocking. Would you send your child [...]
Last week, Tim Cook issued a public apology for the poor Apple Maps experience.
Now its website, which once claimed Apple Maps was “the most powerful mapping service ever,” has been changed to make a more realistic claim.
Digital Inspiration noted its old language:
“Designed by Apple from the ground up, Maps gives you turn-by-turn spoken directions, interactive 3D views, and the stunning Flyover feature. All of which may just make this app the most beautiful, powerful mapping service [...]
I mapped these out today and when you look at the big picture something appears to be moving BIGTIME.
Tracks are shifting, sinkholes, sand geysers, bride collapses, gas releases…we have had NUMEROUS reports of high radiation levels in many cities over the past week THAT CORRESPOND TO MANY OF THESE EVENTS…remember prior to the Japan earthquake huge quantities of radon gas were released from fault zones.

Passengers said the aircraft suddenly ‘dipped like a ferry’ and cabin crew ‘ran down the aisles’ while the plane spent two hours [...]
You don’t hear much about the water crisis in the United States. Water is still cheap here and our borders contain a relatively large freshwater supply.
But in some places the crisis is in flames.
1.6 billion people live in regions with absolute water scarcity and by 2025 two-thirds of the world’s population could be living under water stressed conditions.
Late energy analyst Matthew Simmons warned this was scarier than peak oil: “As global population [...]
A 13-year-old boy has outsmarted staff at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art after quickly pointing out an error in one of their exhibits’ maps.
Benjamin Lerman Coady, a seventh grader at Renbrook School in West Hartford, Connecticut, who reads ahead in his school’s history textbooks, told the Hartford Courant that he recognized the mistake on his first visit to the museum last summer.
Originally he thought the museum would be a walk through of ‘just [...]

My wife and I just got back from a vacation in Spain.
I nearly ruined the whole trip during the first two days.
The reason: I had my nose buried in a guide book.
The thing had a map in it, and “guided walks,” and I spent two days stopping on every second block in Madrid trying to figure out where we were and where we should be going next.
My wife, exasperated, [...]
From Economic Policy Journal:
Because the Department of Homeland Security has asked parts of the public to report suspicious activity through the “Communities Against Terrorism” program , if you visit an airport, stay in a hotel, drink coffee at an Internet cafe, or in some other way interact with one of the “Halloween G-men” in the American public, a full-fledged FBI investigation is only one phone call away, says LaTi.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Texas’ attorney general agreed Monday to temporary voting maps that add new Hispanic-dominated districts and could save the April 3 date for primary elections statewide. But at least one influential minority group said it would fight the new plan.
Still, the proposal marks a rare moment of agreement in a bitter legal clash that has dragged on since last summer, even reaching the U.S. Supreme Court. Minority [...]
