Amazing PINK MOON set to rise over Earth on Good Friday/Start of passover

The full pink moon is expected to occur on Good Friday Despite having the name, the moon will not actually appear as the colour pink.

but instead derives the name because it coincides with the blooming of a pink wildflower

The name comes from the Herb moss pink phlox, or ‘wild ground’ phlox, which blooms in early spring in the US and Canada

WHEN CAN YOU SEE THE PINK MOON?

According to the farmer’s Almanac, the peak fullness will be reached at 12.12 BST and this year, it will be visible from everywhere on Earth on Good Friday.

The timing of the full moon’s appearance depends on where the moon is in its orbit around the Earth; this is why the actual time of the full moon can be in daylight for certain locations

American commuters making their way to work will be able to catch the event as it reaches its peak at 7:12A.M EST.

In China, it will occur in the evening time starting from approximately 4pm, calculated from China Standard Time.

France, Italy and Spain will be able to catch it at around 13.00 (WET) and it will reach its peak in eastern Europe at around 14.00 (EET).

For the best chance of seeing it, try to head to an area with little light pollution, so the moon will look particularly bright in the night sky.

The April full moon will be the fourth full moon of 2019 after millions around the very rare events like the Super blood wolf moon in January.

The name comes from the Herb moss pink phlox, or ‘wild ground’ phlox, which blooms in early spring in the US and Canada. It occurs when the moon is located on the opposite side of the Earth as the sun, meaning its face is fully illuminated

The pink moon has also been called the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and the full Fish Moon.

According to an Old Wive’s Tale, many believe that labour can be induced by the lunar cycle and the start of a full moon.

WHAT IS A FULL PINK MOON AND WHERE DOES IT GET ITS NAME?

In the Northern Hemisphere, the April full moon lines up with the blooming of one of spring’s earliest-flowering plants – wild ground phlox, or ‘moss pink’.

The pink moon, which is also known as the grass moon and the egg moon, was given its moniker by Native Americans, who provided a name for each full moon to help them keep track of time.

Native Americans have a name for the full moon of every month in the calendar, including Wolf Moon for January, Snow Moon for February and Worm Moon for March – then Flower Moon in May, Strawberry Moon is for June, Buck Moon is for July and Sturgeon Moon is for August. In September, there is a Harvest Moon, Hunter’s Moon is in October, Beaver Moon is in November and Cold Moon is in December.

According to the Ontario Native Literacy Coalition, the Ojibwe peoples indigenous to North America called it the Sucker Moon after the common fish species known as suckerfish. This fish, also known as the remora, is one of the animals that the Ojibwe saw as a messenger between the spirit world and ours. In the same region, the Cree called April’s full moon the Goose Moon, as April was the month when geese returned to the north after migrating south for the winter.

The Tlingit of the Pacific Northwest call the April full moon “X’eigaa Kayaaní Dís,” meaning “Budding moon of plants and shrubs,” according to the Tlingit Moon and Tide Teaching Resource published by the University of Alaska at Fairbanks.

In New Zealand, the Māori people had much different traditions for their April full moons, because in the Southern Hemisphere, April arrives in autumn. The Māori called the April moon “Paenga-whāwhā,” describing the month as a time when “all straw is now stacked at the borders of the plantations,” according to The Encyclopedia of New Zealand.

For the Jewish people, April 20 marks the beginning of the holiday of Passover (the 15th day of the lunar month of Nisan), which celebrates the escape from Egypt and has been popularized by films such as “The Ten Commandments” and Disney’s “The Prince of Egypt.”

After 3 Supermoons in January, February and March, let’s hope that April’s fullmoon will be as awesome!

Unusually high level of landslides worldwide, over 1 000 fatalities so far this year

More than 1 000 people have been killed across the world so far this year as a result of an unusually high number of landslides, according to landslides expert Dr. Dave Petley, Vice-President (Research and Innovation) at the University of Sheffield, UK.

Even though the first 3 months of the year are usually the least active period, 2019 has already seen an unusual level of landsliding worldwide, with fatalities totaling over 1 000 to date, Petley said April 18.

“Significant losses have occurred in rainfall-induced events in Africa, South America, Southeast Asia and in East Asia, as well as in mining and construction induced landslides.”

In his latest post, showcasing a dramatic debris video, Petley said parts of the Himalayas are suffering from unusual levels of pre-monsoon rainfall, with substantial losses from landslides and floods.

The Jammu-Srinagar highway, for example, has been blocked repeatedly over the last few weeks, and there have been several fatal landslides in Pakistan this year already.

UK Teacher Fired for Protesting LGBT-Based Sex Education at Son’s Christian School

A teacher in the United Kingdom lost her job because of her public objections to transgender issues being taught at her son’s Church of England School. Kristie Higgs, 43, served as a pastoral assistant at an academy in Fairford, Gloucestershire.

According to CBN News, the events that led to Higgs’s firing for “gross misconduct” started with a post on her personal Facebook page. Higgs, a mother of two, took issue with pro-transgender teaching in her children’s elementary school. This included a book about a boy who wears dresses and Red: A Crayon’s Story, which features a red crayon who discovers that he is a blue crayon.

According to the Daily Mail, Higgs took to Facebook to express her displeasure and on her personal page said that, “children will be taught that all relationships are valid and ‘normal,’ so that same-sex marriage is exactly the same as traditional marriage, and that gender is a matter of choice, not biology, so that it’s up to them what sex they are.” In addition, she asked her friends to sign a petition against compulsory sex education.

The school received an email from someone who said that Higgs had shared “homophobic and prejudiced views.” The school investigated and fired Higgs for what the school called, “gross misconduct and illegal discrimination” for sharing thoughts “which could be deemed offensive.” In addition, the school said that her comments “could bring the school into disrepute and damage the reputation of the school.” However, the school possessed no evidence that her post had hurt the school in any way.

Higgs claims that the school fired her because of her religious convictions. The school responded that the firing took place “for reasons other than your religion.” Higgs claims that their statement is a “legal tactic” and that her firing “has everything to do with my religion.”

The BBC reports that Higgs initiated a legal challenge to the disciplinary action through the Christian Legal Centre, which is part of the lobbying group Christian Concern. Higgs released a statement through them and said she holds her views on sexuality and gender “because of my Christian beliefs, beliefs, and views which are shared by hundreds of thousands of parents across the UK.”

Higgs further elaborated on her concerns with the UK’s program of sex education, which education secretary Damian Hinds expanded in February to include same-sex relationships, transgender people, and other related issues. She said, my number one concern has always been the effect that learning about sex and gender in school will have on children at such a young age.”

Higgs also recognizes that her legal battle affects other concerned Christians in the United Kingdom. She said, “I am determined to fight this case and to stand for Christians and all parents across this country who are being silenced for sharing and holding these views.”

Taiwan earthquake:6.1  Magnitude EARTHQUAKE   ROCKS Pacific Ring of Fire

A strong 6.1 magnitude earthquake struck Taiwan’s east coast Thursday afternoon, rattling buildings in the capital city. (USGA)

according to the island’s Central Weather Bureau. TV footage showed at least one landslide but there were no immediate reports of major damage or injuries.

The bureau said the quake happened at one minute after 1 p.m. local time (0500 GMT), with its epicenter located just over 6 miles northwest of the eastern coastal city of Hualien. The depth was 10 kilometers 6 miles, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quake shook buildings in the capital, Taipei, which is about 71 miles away.

Footage run by Taiwanese television stations showed overturned furniture in homes and offices and at least one landslide along the mountainous and lightly populated east coast.

Taiwan is on the string of seismic faults around the Pacific Ocean known as the “Rim of Fire” and is frequently rocked by tremors, including a 1999 quake that killed more than 2,300 people.

An earthquake in February 2018 in Hualien killed 17 people when four buildings partially collapsed. That quake hit two years to the day after an apartment building in the southwestern city of Tainan collapsed in an earthquake, killing 115 people.

Babies Were Killed After Failed Abortions: “They Were Taken By the Doctor and Turned Face Down in Saline”

“It has happened here.”

Her words hung there, in the air of a crowded North Carolina Assembly. “I’ve been a witness,” state Rep. Pat McElraft told the quiet crush of people lining the upper galley. She described the horrible moment she saw the tiny bodies stored at a doctor’s office.

“Nurses told the stories of those babies who were born alive,” she remembers.

“[They] were taken by the doctor,” she pauses, “and turned face down in the saline.”

Then, looking around the chamber, she says quietly, “Infanticide has happened here.” Whether it keeps happening is now up to one man: Democratic Governor Roy Cooper.

Like so many of the abortion debates since New York, it was an intense one. But in the end, it took less than 24 hours for North Carolina to do what the Democrats in Congress will not: step in and stop legal infanticide. Even after flipping an impressive number of state seats blue, Democratic leaders in North Carolina still couldn’t overcome the national tide against newborn violence. After a quick 28-19 vote in the Senate Monday night, the House raced to follow suit — handing pro-lifers a massive victory with a 65-46 vote on Tuesday afternoon — and sending the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act straight to the governor’s desk.

Cooper has 10 days to decide if he stands with the radicals like Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or thousands of innocent babies. While Sanders and company rush to save cats and dogs, they see no sense in rescuing actual human beings, whose only crime is being born. On Monday night, Sanders reiterated the Democrats’ extremism, telling a roomful of Pennsylvanians that killing is okay if it doesn’t happen often. “I think that that happens very, very rarely,” Sanders said. “At the end of the day, the decision over abortion belongs to a woman and her physician, not the federal government, not the state government.”

Terrorism doesn’t happen every day either. Does that mean we should shutdown Homeland Security? And if it’s so rare, then what’s the problem? End it. If murder is wrong, then it’s wrong every time. The law doesn’t suddenly kick when you hit a certain quota. If there’s a gunman on the scene, police don’t wait for the casualties to pile up before they act. A life is a life. I guarantee if it were Bernie Sanders’s child dying on a hospital table and doctors refused to treat him, he wouldn’t say, “Well, that’s your decision.” Rareness doesn’t equal rightness.

And the reality is, even our own government admits: infanticide isn’t rare. There are literally hundreds of infants being thrown out like garbage every year — a fact we know thanks to eye witnesses like Jill Stanek. When the CDC says there were 143 cases of babies born alive between 2002-14, they’re only basing that number on the reports from six states! The lifeless bodies Pat McElraft saw weren’t included — just like the hundreds of undocumented “snippings” and blows to the head by monsters like Kermit Gosnell and Douglas Karpen.

Still, Cooper and his indifferent party shrug and insist people like Melissa Ohden are all figments of our imagination. It’s “unnecessary legislation,” his office insisted yesterday, because infanticide “simply does not exist.” Instead, the spokesman said, legislators should be concentrating on “expanding access to health care to help children thrive.” What does he think life-saving infant treatment is — if not health care to help children thrive?

If the governor vetoes this bill, as his spokesman seems to suggest he will, then it will take every single Republican and eight Democrats (one in the Senate and seven in the House) to override him. Hopefully, they’ll find the courage that Reps. Raymond Smith (D), Garland Pierce (D), Charles Graham (D), and James Gailliard (D) did to stand up to their party and end birth day abortion.

A single person can change the world. One life ended apartheid. One life saved 1,200 Jews in World War II. One life could cure cancer — or end suffering around the world. One person is always worth it. Join us. Sign on to our newborn hat campaign and help us send tens of thousands of reminders to Nancy Pelosi that every life matters. And every life, everywhere, is worth fighting for.

Passover Plague Update: Hailstones in Texas, Frogs Suffer ‘Amphibian Apocalypse’

“I sent against you pestilence In the manner of Egypt; I slew your young men with the sword, Together with your captured horses, And I made the stench of your armies Rise in your very nostrils. Yet you did not turn back to Me — declares Hashem.” Amos 4:10

In preparation for Passover, here is a roundup of recent reappearances of the Egyptian plagues. This includes a hailstorm that arrived in Texas days before the holiday recitation of the wonders God performed before taking the Jews out of Egypt.

According to Jewish tradition, the ten-plagues will reappear before the Messiah events and even the most skeptical person will have to admit that many pre-Exodus scenarios are being played out again in front of our eyes, albeit in some unusual ways.

HAIL

The hail was very heavy—fire flashing in the midst of the hail—such as had not fallen on the land of Egypt since it had become a nation. Exodus 9:24

While residents of a region in the southern United States known as Tornado Alley were still reeling from a severe three-day storm, forecasters already began warning Texans of another imminent weather strike in the form of baseball-sized hail.

If you are in Texas, Okalahoma or Kansas pull your car under cover Wednesday with baseball sized hail threat. Thursday the threat shifts to Louisiana and MS. Tornadoes possible. Stay alert!!

Hundreds of Flights were canceled and schools were closed as the state prepared for the the barrage of abnormally large hailstones, which inevitably arrived in north Texas on Wednesday evening, accompanied by the requisite lightning described in the Bible. Highways were eerily empty of traffic as the balls of ice fell.

Storm Chaser Dr. Reed Timmer posted a video showing the intense lightning produced by the hail-bearing supercell.In the Bible, this plague manifested as a miraculously unnatural mix of fire and ice. Though a natural cause is surely to blame, the Biblical connotations implicit in the hailstorm arriving days before Passover are unmistakable.

LOCUSTS – AND OTHER CREEPY CRAWLIES

They covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt. Exodus 10:15

This winter brought the mixed blessing of rain to the Middle East, offering respite from a five-year drought but also generating a spike in the region’s locust population. As swarms of the ravenous insects swept across parts of Egypt and covering the Great Mosque in Mecca in February, Israel prepared for Passover and braced for the worst.

But what finally arrived, winging its way across the skies of Israel, were flocks of butterflies. Millions of Painted Ladies passed through the Holy Land on their way from Africa to Cyprus and on to their summer homes in Europe.

PESTILENCE OF LIVESTOCK AN ZMBIE DEER DISEASE
When Pharaoh inquired, he found that not a head of the livestock of Yisrael had died; yet Pharaoh remained stubborn, and he would not let the people go.” Exodus 9:7

The fifth plague may be reappearing in the form of Chronic wasting disease (CWD) infections in deer. Nicknamed “zombie deer disease”, cases of CWD have been on the rise in the last decade and cases have been discovered in more than two dozen states as well as two provinces in Canada. Outbreaks have even been documented in South Korea and Europe, most notably among Norwegian reindeer.

The disease infects the brain, eroding it and causing the animal to be listless, interact less with other deer, shake uncontrollably, walk repetitively in set patterns, and to be nervous. CWD is always fatal and experts have yet to find a vaccine or a cure.

Although there are no known cases of people contracting the disease, but research suggests it poses a risk to humans. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggested that as a precaution, hunters should avoid eating deer meat known from areas where CWD has been identified.

Diseases that affect animals are common, although it is interesting to note that the fifth plague that struck Egypt focused on their livestock, highlighting their dependence on their animals.

FROGS SUFFER “AMPHIBIAN APOCALYPSE”:
The Nile shall swarm with frogs, and they shall come up and enter your palace, your bedchamber and your bed, the houses of your courtiers and your people, and your ovens and your kneading bowls. Exodus 7:28

The Bible describes Egypt becoming overrun with frogs but the modern incarnation may be the antithesis, a phenomenon scientists have dubbed an “amphibian apocalypse.”

A global team of 41 scientists announced last week that humans have unwittingly spread the chytrid fungi Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) and Batrachochytrium salamandrivorans (Bsal) around the world, causing a sharp decline of at least 501 amphibian species, or about one out of every 16 known to science. 90 of the amphibian species have gone extinct or are presumed extinct in the wild. Another 124 species have declined by more than 90 percent.

“Chytrid fungus is the most destructive pathogen ever described by science—that’s a pretty shocking realization,” wrote biologist Wendy Palen in an article in Science.

If God ever decides to bring back the Biblical plagues as a precursor to the Messiah, an infestation will surely stand in sharp contrast to the current dearth of frogs.

More than 100 killed as slow-moving storm hits Afghanistan, Pakistan and India

More than 100 people have been killed in Afghanistan, Pakistan and India over the past 2 days after a slow-moving storm hit the region, dumping heavy rain and causing severe dust storms. The death toll is expected to rise.

Several states in central, northern and western India were hit by severe thunderstorms on April 16, killing at least 50 people. The worst affected was Rajasthan with 25 deaths reported by late Wednesday afternoon, April 17.

Meteorologists said heavy rain is expected to continue affecting the state over the next 24 hours and issued a high alert for numerous districts, including Jalore, Jaisalmer, Barmer, Jodhpur, Pali, Kota, Jhalawar, Baran, Dausa and Alwar.

The Times of Idia reported many incidents of wall collapses and uprooted trees, electric and telephone cables.
