      Mt. Vesuvius Poses Imminent Danger...10/06/03
      by Mitch Battros (ECTV)

      The Italian government believes Mt. Vesuvius to be such an imminent threat,
      they are offering residents money to move.
      Hundreds of families who live on the slopes of the volcano Mount Vesuvius
      have decided to accept the government's offer of
      $35,000 to move outside the eruption danger zone.

      Many geologists believe that it is only a matter of time before another
      major eruption by the volcano devastates populated
      areas around the volcano. a large eruption in 79AD buried the towns of
      Pompeii and Herculaneum. In the first two days of
      the government's offer, about 900 families applied for the payments to move
      outside the danger zone.

      Vesuvius is a complex volcano. I have recently learned, Vesuvius is part of
      a Super-Volcano named �Somma�. Mt. Vesuvius
      sits in a caldera formed about 34,000 years ago. It is known as the �Somma
      Caldera�. This is much the same as Northern
      America's Yellowstone Super-Volcano.

      From 1983-1985 an area of 31 square miles (80 square kilometers) was
      uplifted, in places up to 5.9 feet (1.8 meters),
      damaging homes, the harbor, and the tourist industry. In 5960 B.C. and 3580
      B.C., Vesuvius had two eruptions that rate
      among the largest known in Europe. The area was frequently jolted by large
      earthquakes. The decorative stonework records
      the damage caused by an earlier earthquake, perhaps the earthquake of 62
      A.D. that preceded the 79 A.D. eruption.

      Vesuvius is a dangerous and deadly volcano. Mudflows and lava flows from the
      eruption in 1631 killed 3,500 people. About
      3,360 people died in the 79 A.D. eruption from ash flows and falls. Studies
      of past eruptions and their deposits continue.
      These studies help volcanologists understand the hazards associated with
      future eruptions. The population density in some
      areas of high risk is 20,000 to 30,000 per square km. About 3 million people
      could be seriously affected by future eruptions.
      In the first 15 minutes of a medium- to large-scale eruption, those living
      in an area within a 4 mile (7 km) radius of the
      volcano, could be destroyed.

      Tuesday October 7th - Ian Lungold - creator of the "Mayan Calendar and
      Conversion Codex" - We are headed toward a
      very disorienting experience. Your entire environment is made up of nothing
      but symbols. Your whole mental landscape is
      made up of only symbols. The whole Hologram of this reality is made of
      agreed upon symbols and those agreements are
      straining at each and every limit set upon them. (Even if you disagree with
      something, first you are agreeing that it exists.)
      This is going to look very crazy for a time and many persons will cling all
      the tighter to fixed meanings of favorite symbols in
      the chaos. Website: http://www.mayanmajix.com/

      Tuesday October 14th - Johnny Mirehiel - "The Harmonic Concordance" - Like
      its spiritual ancestor, the 'Harmonic
      Convergence' of 1987, The 'Harmonic Concordance' of 2003 also is a call to
      the Spirit of Humankind to awaken to the idea
      that we are, in fact, Spiritual beings sharing a physical experience.
      Consequently, ceremonies and celebrations in honor of
      this idea are now being scheduled at multiple sacred sites and pilgrimage
      places throughout the world.
