The Bases: There is an island which is disputed territory between Canada and Denmark. The militaries of both countries periodically visit to remove the other guy's flag and leave a bottle of Danislh schnapps or Canadian whiskey. This is what happens when nice countries fight. Far in the Arctic North lies the barren and desolate Hans Island. The uninhabited half-square-mile island, possessing no apparent natural resources, is a bizarre sliver of territory for two countries to fight over. However, since the early 1930s, this nondescript rock has been at the center of an ongoing disagreement between Canada and Denmark. According to World Atlas, Hans Island is located in the middle of the 22-mile wide Nares Strait, which separates Greenland, an autonomous territory of Denmark, from Canada. Due to international law, all countries have the right to claim territory within 12 miles of their shore. As such, Hans Island is technically located in both Danish and Canadian waters. World Atlas notes that the island was decided to be Danish territory by the Permanent Court of International Justice of the League of Nations in 1933. However, as the League of Nations fell apart in the 1930s and was then replaced by the United Nations, the ruling on the status of Hans Island carries little to no weight. The issue of Hans Island then loss traction in popular consciousness and the concerns of the Canadian and Danish governments throughout World War II and the heights of the Cold War, only to reemerge in 1984. On that year, Denmark's minister of Greenland affairs visited the island and planted a Danish flag. At the base of the flag, he left a note saying, "Welcome to the Danish island," along with a bottle of brandy, CBC reports. And since then, the two countries have waged a not-quite-serious "whiskey war" over Hans Island. Peter Takso Jensen, the Danish Ambassador to the US, has said that "when Danish military go there, they leave a bottle of schnapps. And when [Canadian] military forces come there, they leave a bottle of Canadian Club and a sign saying, 'Welcome to Canada.'"

The Bases: The Vector Equilibrium Is The Key To Free Energy The Ancient Egyptians Used This Unlimited Power Source Structure of the UnifiedField โ€” The VectorEquilibrium and Isotropic Vector Matrix. The most fundamental aspect of the VE to understand is that, being a geometry of absolute equilibrium wherein all fluctuation (and therefore differential) ceases, it is conceptually the geometry of what we call the zero-point or Unified Field โ€” also called the "vacuum" of space. In order for anything to become manifest in the universe, both physically (energy) and metaphysically (consciousness), it requires a fluctuation in the Unified Field, the result of which fluctuation and differential manifests as the Quantum and Spacetime fields that are observable and measurable. Prior to this fluctuation, though, the Unified Field exists as pure potential, and according to contemporary theory in physics it contains an infinite amount of energy (and in cosmometry, as well as spiritual philosophies, an infinite creative potential of consciousness). Being a geometry of equal vectors and equal 60ยฐ angles, it is possible to extend this equilibrium array infinitely outward from the center point of the VE, producing what is called the Isotropic VectorMatrix (IVM). Isotropic means โ€œall the sameโ€, Vector means โ€œline of energyโ€, and Matrix means โ€œa pattern of lines of energyโ€. It is this full isotropic vector matrix that can be seen as the infinitely-present-at-all-scales-and-in-perfect-equilibrium geometry of the zero-point Unified Field. Every point in this matrix is a potential center point of a VE around which a condition of dynamic fluctuation may arise to manifest. And as has been stated and is seen in this image, this VE geometry is inherent in this matrix (the green lines comprise the VE): In fact, the VE itself can be seen to consist of a symmetrical array of eight tetrahedons with their bases representing the triangular faces of the VE, and all pointing towards the VEโ€™s center point. (The square faces are the bases of half-octahedron, like the form of the pyramids in Egypt. 4biddenknowledge video clip from ThriveMovie click the link in my bio to watch Thrive.

The official FOXNEWS report is below: DEVELOPING โ€“ The United States launched dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airfield early Friday in response to a chemical weapons attack that killed dozens of civilians, the first direct assault on the Damascus government since the beginning of that country's bloody civil war in 2011. At least 50 U.S. Tomahawk missiles targeted an airbase at Shayrat, located outside Homs. It is believed that the base was used as the staging point for Tuesday's chemical weapons attack on rebel-held territory, which killed as many as 72 civilians, including women and children. The use of Tomahawk missiles meant that the strikes did not target air defense systems manned by Russian troops. The Assad regime is strongly backed by Russia and Iran. U.S. defense officials tell Fox that two warships based in the eastern Mediterranean, the USS Porter and the USS Ross, have been training for the past two days to execute this mission. โ€œOur forward deployed ships give us the capability to quickly respond to threats," said a Navy official. "These strikes in Syria are a perfect example - this is why we're there." The original plans called for two targets, the airbase and a chemical weapons storage facility. However, Pentagon planners decided late Thursday to target just the airbase. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., expressed support for the strike, saying in a joint statement that "the United States will no longer stand idly by as Assad, aided and abetted by Putinโ€™s Russia, slaughters innocent Syrians with chemical weapons and barrel bombs."

Keep this in mind when you hear someone forget, He is just a little boy, and not a man yet. feveryfield I just stumbled across this post and figured I'd give my perspective on it. On a previous post I made I broke down part social reason that women can't raise boys to become men without the help of another man-men and this post proves part of the reason why. Situations like this aren't only for sport and a lot of women just can't see that. When single mothers put their sons in a sport their preconceived notion and immediate opinion about the sport is that "it doesn't matter" "it's just a game" and it "isn't real life". Sport of any kind is a preparation for the real world in every sense and most men fully understand this, while most women don't care or never even consider the greater purpose and bigger picture. When a woman sees her young son struggling in a sport for whatever reason she'll often tell him it's okay to quit, walk out in the middle of a game, take a brake if he needs to, it doesn't matter what happens, and just ignore the "boos and hisses". Women, single mothers specifically, you must let go of the preconceived notion that the sport your son is involved in "is just a game" and "doesn't matter". Sports are a means for your son to learn how to operate in the real world as it relates to and treats MEN while he's still young enough to make his mistakes without the harsh repercussions an adult man would face in this world if he were to make the same mistakes. In the real world men don't have the option to say "the game is no longer fun" men don't have the liberty to cry in front of ANYONE just because our feelings are hurt. Quite frankly no one cares about the feelings of men and when your boy comes of age the same women who wiped his tears and gave him a shoulder to cry on will ridicule him to no end and rip any sense of manhood he had to shreds if he even thinks about crying in public FOR ANY REASON. I'm not saying it's right or wrong, that's another topic for another day, but whether you as a single mother like these truths or not doesn't change their validity.
