For 15 years, humans have been living continuously aboard the ISS to advance scientific knowledge and demonstrate new technologies, making research breakthroughs not possible on Earth that also will enable long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space. A truly global endeavor, more than 200 people from 15 countries have visited the unique microgravity laboratory that has hosted more than 1,700 research investigations from researchers in more than 83 countries.
On station has given us the chance to see ourselves, seven billion souls with individual dreams, limitless possibilities to do great things.
The photo above representing Astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti comment of "Seven Billion Dreams One Planet" is a clear indication of 'We're in this together', mission WITT. Samantha Cristoforetti is an Italian European Space Agency astronaut, Italian Air Force pilot and engineer. She holds the records for longest single space flight by a woman and for the longest uninterrupted spaceflight of a European astronaut.

Alberta’s Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) are going door-to-door, warning residents of Anzac, Gregoire Lake Estates, and Fort McMurray First Nation to leave ASAP. Some 1,600 buildings have been destroyed by the fires and the price of West Texas Intermediate crude-oil futures rise$ The Alberta Tar Sands are North of Fort McMurray; camps designed to house temporary workers are being used to house the thousands of people fleeing the fires.
More than 1,200 firefighters, about 110 helicopters, 295 pieces of heavy equipment and 27 air tankers have been deployed to fight the flames, according to the Alberta provincial government. "An absolutely vicious fire."

The earning reports for the first quarter are flooding mainstream before the Wall Street bell rings in. Corporations have become addicted to Heroin Money supplied by the Fed and showing Mama to just change their diaper with a continuing mass feeding. This new wave of reporting earnings can only mean two things, one would be to show the Fed before Wednesday please don't raise the rate and two, that investors should consider pulling profits off the table because this signal mentions a form of insider trading but is a whining cry for help!
When searching the understanding of market direction today many high chairs in the kitchen of finance revile analyzing microeconomics, accompanied by the Power Monopoly which needs to be part of investment decision. The flood of interest free money has forced the regulators to down grade the Junk Bonds which came from the buy back of stocks through the corporations. The mind of financial structure is imprisoned with in it's self, manipulating the law and accounting practices of Betty Crocker.
Just a couple of reminders here of this new age bull, Goldman Sachs and Northern Trust Global managed a $16.1 billion Central States fund in Rosemont, Illinois for the Teamsters. Well, they destroyed the fund by losing $11.1 billion in seed capital by placing big bets on stocks and non-traditional investments between 2005 and 2008. Now this goes even deeper because boys coming out of Goldman Sachs end up in government positions where Central State administrators lobbied Congress to pass legislation giving them authority to cut retirement benefits by up to 50% after Treasury Department approval. This type of accounting practice and regulation is no mistake, you talented accounting boys ripped off the Teamsters! I'll try to help ya with a suggestion, your only safe haven will be Mars, it wont be planet Earth.
Another example is the gold and silver price rigging finally exposed by investors who were tired of being ripped off! Deutsche Bank, Bank of Nova Scotia and HSBC have admitted to price fixing which shorted the metals and you can be sure other central banks are in on this accounting practice, which has been going on since inception.
A person today doesn't need a PhD in finance to determine what the hell is going on. Here at The Globe Backyard click on the business tab, go to the 3rd, 4th and 5th pic in the list after the vid on top. From here you will be able to determine where the economy is headed, then go have some Ice Cream at Ben & Jerry.

When you think you're the master of the universe (as far as money goes) and your crock pot accounting pisses off the wrong group, you'll wish you were Merlin and disappear.

|Fr: Clarence "Clem" Schultz's second floor window|
Historic video of tornado filming just came online from the Fairdale, IL tornado of 4/9 last year. 85 year Clem Schultz thought it was going to miss the house. He was upstairs getting some camping lanterns in case the power went out. From the kitchen his wife called out, look out the window! Clem decided to film the event! "I was standing next to the chimney when the whole place went down," said Shultz, who ended up buried in the rubble. Neighbors helped Schultz out from underneath the rubble, suffering crushed vertebrae in the fall, but the tragedy didn’t end there as one of them told him: "Don't look down because your wife is under you, and she's dead.”
It's tornado season, be safe out there. Like a deer in the head lights we get mesmerized by these monsters. Victims are right, this beast sounded like a freight train coming, at which point it's too late!

|Mother Nature endorses 'A Future to Believe In'|
A Sparrow flew on the podium on top of the slogan 'A Future to Believe In' at the Bernie Sanders rally in Portland held at the Moda Center. Never in my life can I think of a time where nature took part in political rally. But sure enough this little Sparrow along with it's mate join Sanders and the crowed loved every second of it. It would seem that Mother Nature herself has endorsed Sanders, which no campaign marketing could create. Might have to increase the size of polling stations this year for the animals might be in line outside the door and with that other candidates might watch their back for Lions and Tigers could turn you into clawed balls and\or shredded ass.
The comment section on this vid is standing with nature, once again this is history and wouldn't be amassing that a Sparrow turned the tide of an US presidency. However you feel about Sanders it seems that Mother knows best and flew down next to his side, money can't buy that, it's just 'Nature's Way.'
From Rodrigo y Gabriela:
I met Øystein Greni, front-man of one of the biggest and most influential Norwegian bands of the last 10 years Bigbang. He introduced me to a song called Natures Way from an American band from the 60's called Spirit and I thought it was a great song! Right then we decided to record it without having any plans to release it in any way shape or form. A few days later we met at a studio in Oslo, and after the success of the session we decided to give it a serious try.

Back in the day; Vostok 1, the first manned spacecraft in human history, and before it, Sputnik 1, the world's first orbital spaceflight of any sort, were launched from one of Baikonur's launch pads, which is now known as Gagarin's Start, named after Yuri Gagarin.
A new science, 'The Balance' we're in this together which brings more value and we're proving it! The Soyuz FG Rocket is a Hot Rod and in the opener of this vid you'll see the assembly of the Launch Escape Tower.

OK you jump in a cab in Saudi Arabia and the taxi driver says he's wearing a suicide belt and we're going to bomb a building. You will be with me, so is Allah's will. You would probably struggle and pleading to the driver let me go!
The driver replays you will be with me a martyr, it's Allah's will. We'll be in seventh heaven!
The video production crew in Saudi Arabia is being blasted for their controversial prank. Producers have said the video was made for awareness of dangers in extremist ideas. Originally uploaded to the Saudi YouTube channel Tube Up, the video has been taken down. Saudis' are blasting for the production company to be punished. Saudi Arabia a country known for its harsh methods of law enforcement can conclude how a funny prank could go wrong. In the mean time this would scare anyone riding along with a suicide bomber explaining, you will be with me!
