In a Thursday interview with Spanish newspaper El Pais, Dr. Ian Lipkin, director of the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia’s Mailman School of Public Health, said that the novel coronavirus may never go away.

Per Newsweek, which published a translation of the interview, Lipkin said that the public will have to adapt and learn how to “live the rest of our lives with this virus.”

“It is going to be a recurring problem. I don’t think life will ever be completely normal again.”

Lipkin said that it is likely future generations will be vaccinated against COVID-19, but noted that additional booster doses may be necessary. The expert described the progress in vaccine development as “staggering,” suggesting that vaccines developed by Moderna and Pfizer will be able to significantly reduce the spread of the virus.

However, Lipkin pointed out that there could be logistical challenges and that distribution will not be easy.

“We will be able to distribute these vaccines in most of Europe and the U.S. But getting them to developing countries will be a daunting challenge,” he said.

Pfizer and BioNTech announced earlier this month that their candidate is 95 percent effective at stopping coronavirus, while Moderna said that its mRNA-1273 had an efficacy of 94.5 percent. However, neither of the vaccines can be stored at standard refrigeration temperatures, which could be a major issue in some parts of the world.

Achieving “global group immunity” is the end goal, according to Lipkin, who explained that between 60 and 80 percent of the world’s population needs to be immune before normalcy is restored.

Governments across the globe have implemented public health measures to curb the spread of coronavirus, some more successfully than others. China, where the virus is thought to have originated, has been very successful in controlling the pandemic.

Lipkin — who assisted the Chinese government during the 2003 SARS epidemic and advised Saudi Arabia during the MERS outbreak — suggested that it is unrealistic to expect western governments to achieve the same results.

“In China, if the government decides to do something, it is done. It is not like in Spain or the United States where there can be debate about confinements and closures,” he said.

The expert concluded the interview on a more optimistic note, saying that the coronavirus crisis “has also demonstrated our ability to respond with science, compassion and a common goal.”

According to the population data site Worldometers, more than 61 million coronavirus cases have been recorded in the world so far and nearly 1.5 million people have died from complications caused by the disease.

Within 12 months, over 100 million people will be dead from starvation. The Third World is purposely being collapsed by the globalists in order to establish UN control of Western Civilization.

A Close Encounter With Self

 Right now we are all experiencing the world alone together. We are accustomed to looking for answers from government, spiritual/religious leaders, or experts when we have questions, but what happens when these sources are unreliable and don’t have the answers we seek? How do we find peace of mind? The true quantum leap towards growth in our personal power, sovereignty, and a connection with life-source energy is something that we must each find within. Joseph Campbell popularized this idea with what he called The Hero’s Journey. Even when the outside world is filled with chaos, division, and confusion, each of us has the capacity to go inward and cultivate a sense of deep peace. Now is the time for us to do that together.

The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek. -Joseph Campbell

Sometimes life can be harsh so we disconnect from ourselves and each other. It is great to dream of and wait for saviors but at a certain point we may have to consider that it is up to us to save ourselves. This will invariably require us to hold up a mirror to recognize the depths of our own shadows in order to heal these broken and essential connections.

It is hard to see social media or watch the news without being confronted by the ugliness of what is presently happening in our world and not be engulfed by fear or rage. The temptation to disassociate is always there because the darkness is so uncomfortable. Bearing witness to our collective shadow is the first step on the path that will lead us to liberation in these times. If nothing else, feeling the deep pain within us has the capacity to open up our hearts and awaken a sense of compassion. Are you able to sit with it all, feel it, witness it, and transmute it?

“You have been telling people that this is the eleventh hour.

Now you must go back and tell people that this is the hour!

And there are things to be considered:

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your Garden.

It is time to speak your truth.

Create your community.

Be good to yourself.

And not look outside of yourself for a leader.

This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing very fast.

It is so great and fast that there are those who will be afraid.

They will hold on to the shore.

They will feel that they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know that the river has its destination.

The elders say that we must let go of the shore,

push off into the middle of the river,

keep our eyes open,

and our heads above the water.

See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time we are to take nothing personally,

least of all, ourselves.

For the moment that we do,

our spiritual growth comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over.

Gather yourselves!

Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.

All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones that we have been waiting for.”

- The Elders, Oraibi, Arizona Hopi Nation

If there ever was a time when we needed a collective internal shift then that time is now. It can not be forced either, it can only be chosen by each individual.

If the idea of sitting with all of the current intensity of the world feels a bit overwhelming then you will be glad to know that there is a global community that is sitting with you. We are alone together in this time of great change on our planet. We may each have our own personal journey to make but the results will be felt collectively.

Many may stay distracted by fear, drama, and division rather than doing a deep personal dive. Let us not forget that it wouldn’t be called The Hero’s Journey if it was easy. Choosing ‘yes’ to this journey always awakens our deepest courage and with that comes strength and resilience.

We must learn to stand in support of each other to reach towards our highest potential, while also allowing compassion for our own and each others’ weaknesses and faults. This is called making contact with our deep self and nobody else can do this for you. This is where we find our connection to the planet, all life, and the cosmos that we are part of. As we change our perception and build those bridges of understanding, we change reality.

Humans are filled with creative brilliance as well as a violent, self-destructive side. When we embrace all that it is to be human, we realize that the most primitive and cosmic sides of our being are yearning to come into a greater sense of union. This is where ancient futures are born.

Collective experiments in consciousness and online livestreams continue to inspire us towards a quantum leap. As the world becomes more chaotic we will be grateful to have cultivated the skills to go inward and create peace. No longer can we wait for anyone else to do this for us. Now is the time to make contact with the deepest wisdom within us. This is the path to transformation!

It's typical how the EvIl backs each other up-Trudeau respected-lol,and Biden's shoulders being swept as if to remove dirt. Trudeau and Biden old friends and will LOL " predictively "get along better than Trump.

Meaning their world agenda will have a better chance.

 Trump is a Lightworker ridding the evil from the planet.

No wonder the Elite are sabbotaging the Votes-and we ALL KNOW they were.

Pensylvania (Trump should have won)-and Georgia have quite a few  Satanics who don't want Trump to win, ,and Ottawa's Satanic Temple is growing fast.

It has been said by many "A vote for Biden is a Vote for the Chinese Communist Party"

Biden is not favoring the pipeline-with this new marriage of power in play,it will go in hand with the Albertan's being forced to go into other forms of employment (as stated in a previous post ) -knocking out the oil and gas industries all together-which is odd-Alberta has the most advanced system in place,but I can guess where this will be going-over east,as Trudeau seems to favor them-i mean HeLl-that is how he got HIS votes,by bringing them into Canada during his election period.

Politics makes me sick-the sad thing,we ALL pay for their treachery,and if Biden manages to weisel out of this-you can All KISS YOUR FREEDOMS GOODBYE!

 Hoorah - the Covid vaccine is here - roll up your sleeve

Conspiracy Theories have abounded about BLOOD and BLOOD PRODUCTS being used by satanic covens...

Rumours of ADRENALINE being harvested from snuff room victims, real-life vampirism performed surgically where ageing billionaires are transfused with teenager’s blood…

...And WITCHES BREWS containing crab blood...

...Many people have claimed that REPTILIAN GENES run through the BLUE BLOOD of ARISTOCRATS… 

Are the overlords really Reptilian? Or are they amphibian-cretacians? Either way, it looks like the BLOOD OF HUMANS is about to undergo a major GENETIC CHANGE…

It seems that Big Pharma is cooking up a particularly bizarre and potent WITCHES BREW for the COVAX jab… We’ll all be getting amphibian-cretacious [crab] blood directly injected into our veins as a ‘cure’ for the scamdemic…

This is no conspiracy theory - this is really happening…

Yes, every person who allows themselves to be jabbed with the COVAX is likely to be getting a homeopathic dose of BLUE BLOOD from one of the world’s most prehistoric creatures. The horseshoe crab is such a successful species it has not needed to evolve for at least 300 million years.

The thing about the crab blood that everyone notices first: It's blue.

This crab blood is said to be an important ingredient in the new, er, ‘vaccine’ which will, I am sure, become a mandatory requirement if you want to live in the high-tax authoritarian regime which the Deep State has planned for you…

Baby foreskins and crab blood are popular ingredients in a WITCHES BREW... find out more by clicking here

The blue blood contains a chemical found only in the amoebocytes of its blood cells that can detect mere traces of bacterial presence and trap them in inescapable clots. Clots… Yes COVAX will form clots… ‘But I though clots in blood cause strokes, high blood pressure and heart failure?’ - ooh - you know what - I think you’re right… But don’t worry these will be special ‘healing clots’ to heal you from the scamdemic…

Big Pharma concentrate the blue crab blood to create the clotting agent called coagulogen. Then, they can use the coagulogen to detect contamination in any solution that might come into contact with blood. If there are dangerous bacterial endotoxins in the liquid—even at a concentration of one part per trillion—the horseshoe crab blood extract will go to work, turning the solution into what scientist Fred Bang, who co-discovered the substance, called a "gel."

"This gel immobilized the bacteria but did not kill them," Bang wrote in the 1956 paper announcing the substance. "The gel or clot was stable and tough and remained so for several weeks at room temperature."

The blue blood in the new COVAX is extracted by stabbing the hearts of millions of horseshoe crabs and draining the tissue around the animals' hearts like pharmaceutical vampires. The blood sells for $15,000 per quart.

Ooooh! guess what - the FALLEN ANGELS TV series shows you that the blue-green skinned gods such as Shiva and Osiris are descended from Amphibious-Serpent humanoids and that several kings, queens and dukes in today’s world are members of the BROTHERHOOD OF THE SNAKE whose roots date back to the magic, telepathy and ancient technology recorded in Sanskrit histories such as the Ramayana...

Aviators - Monumental (Demon's Souls Song | Hybrid Alternative)

The 11:11 Awakening Meditation

 One of the many gifts the Divine Feminine offers us is the gift of intuition.


Our intuition works closely with the right hemisphere of the brain and the higher heart, offering us insights that bypass the confines of logic and reason.


Intuition is our natural inner Knowing. It transcends mental intellect, and connects us to the wisdom of the heart. It is the voice of our Spirit.


Our intuition speaks to us constantly, whether the mind chooses to be aware of it or not. It is always guiding us in the direction of our highest path, and nudging us toward greater expansion, so we can live the greatest version of our life in this fast-changing reality.


During November, we will be given many opportunities to strengthen our intuitive gifts.  


All that is asked of us, is that we be mindful of being present often. This will allow us to be open and available to the insights and intuitive nudges that will help us gently move into the next phase of our personal and collective journey.


By having a strong connection to our intuition, we empower every aspect of our lives.


The more we listen to and honor our intuitive gifts, the more aligned we are to creating a life of fulfillment, joy, Love, peace, prosperity, freedom, and well-being.


The 11-11 Doorway


On November 11 we will move through an important and powerful energetic doorway of healing known as the 11-11 Doorway.


The 11-11 Doorway is always celebrated through the gathering of millions of empaths, way-showers and cosmically aligned soul family from all around the world, via synched-up meditations that focus on Oneness.


The 11-11 portal is humanity’s call to the Divine Feminine to heal the aspects of Masculine energy that have forgotten their Divinity. She will go deep into the heart and psyche of the Masculine (in both men and women) and bring nourishing Love where there was once fear and separation.


Our collective gathering will help to alchemize personal and collective density into light, peace, Love, openness, and beauty.


Below is a heart-opening meditation that will help us to connect with and open up to the 11-11 Portal of Healing.


This meditation, or any meditation you desire to do, can be done anytime throughout the day of November 11th.


However, if you’d like to make it extra special, set a reminder for any of your local times of 1:11 am, 11:11 am, 1:11 pm, or 11:11 pm. Try this or any meditation that resonates with you around these times.


The 11:11 Awakening Meditation


Step 1: Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths.

Step 2: Smile with your right eye only (eyes still closed). Hold for 10 seconds.

Step 3: Smile with your left eye only (eyes still closed). Hold for 10 seconds.


Step 4: Imagine what it would feel like if your third eye (in the space between your eyebrows) was smiling. Hold that feeling for 10 seconds.


Step 5: Move the smile down from the third eye to your mouth and cheeks (a regular, big smile). Hold this smile for 10 seconds.


Step 6: Move the smile from your face down into your heart. Imagine what it would feel like if your heart was smiling big.


I like to see my heart as a cartoon heart-person, with a cute happy face and little dangly legs and hands, wearing a top hat, and doing a tap dance for me.


The key is to use an image that makes you feel happy and brings you joy. Envision your heart smiling and putting on this show for you, for at least 10 seconds.


Step 7: Say out loud: “I am fully open to receiving and giving unconditional Love now, with ease and grace. And so it is!”


Step 8: Affirm out loud at least 5 things you’d like to see manifest in the world, and reflect on how these things would impact you personally.


Step 9: Express gratitude to yourself and to the Universe for opening you up to all of the new blessings life has in store for you.


Step 10: Open your eyes, and observe over the coming days, weeks, and months, the new blessings that enter your life.


And that’s it!


On November 30th, we will complete the month with a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse, which will help set the stage for an exciting, active, transformational December. We’ll chat more about that in the December Energy Forecast.


May this November bless you in extraordinary ways!


Although heartbreaking to witness and experience, the chaos we see depicted in life is due to a large percentage of humanity shifting from mind-based perceptions to heart-centered awareness, perhaps for the first time in many people’s journey. Currently, humanity is at a crucial midpoint in this shift, where the midpoint between the mind and heart is the throat.

Because the throat chakra centers around communication, it is no surprise to live in a world where so many voices choose to be heard. As the throat chakra opens in consciousness, it initially empties all the suppressed emotional density stored from past wounds, along with the words and feelings never shared with those who hurt us the most.

While the existence of mind-based perception can make it seem as if the voice is being used to fight against injustice and unfairness, the truth of heart-centered awareness may seem backwards to the cause and effect interpretations of mind.

While the mind’s job is to scan environments to match a reason or cause for our inner experiences, it is the outer world that has been manifested into such a hostile social and political climate to help the collective throat chakra open and empty out its history of repressed pain. Every complaint of injustice and corruption is valid and real. And yet, each situation only manifests for the deeper healing it inspires.

The question is, how much of our current collective upheaval will we personally allow to deepen our healing and expand our consciousness?

As the collective throat chakra opens and stabilizes, our depth of expression can be used in its most conscious and constructive manner as the voice of the heart. Because humanity is en route to this stage of stabilization, we are currently living in a time when life is manifesting whichever timelines of scenarios that give individuals within the collective justifiable reasons to share their voices and release their pain, even though the very things many people are so vocal about are not the underlying root of such emotions.

While humanity shifts out of a mind-based identity and into alignment with heart-centered consciousness, it becomes easier to see external manifestations are created to heal the wounds and feelings already stored within us.

As each person undergoes phases of healing that external realities instigate, the more heart-centered energy can be carried in our cells to inspire external reality to transform more into accordance with the light we are cultivating within.

While external progress occurs through many levels of empowered human contribution, and not solely from an energetic standpoint, it is the energetic component of healing ourselves that remains a vital catalyst and central theme of necessity in our awakening world right now.

During this particular shift of exiting the mind and entering the heart, it can feel like existing in limbo land or purgatory for many. While we may no longer be so tightly locked into the interpretations and beliefs of a mind-based identity, we equally may not have fully entered the new home of the heart. This highlights a rather crucial level of dark night of the soul, where we cross the bridge of identity from mind to heart by making peace with uncertainty.

Because uncertainty is one of the mind’s biggest fears and the heart’s most faithful allies in letting go, it is common for the mid-point of the throat chakra to be used to express discord and dissonance in any direction.

Again, while wholeheartedly believing its feedback solely pertains to the movement of outside activity when in fact, it is how the nervous system adjusts to uncertainty becoming a friend instead of remaining a foe.

For many right now, there is still a tendency to fight uncertainty, which is why during a close presidential race, the slow counting of votes, the questioning of the voting process, and even the pondering of corruption on either side highlights the very uncertainty manifested to further assist in humanity’s shift.

Whether we are seeing radical shifts in the consciousness in ourselves or others, or more likely amplified tension, chaos, and violence, we are holding space for the biggest shift the identity of humanity has ever experienced. This is a shift that is guaranteed to reach completion, whether experienced with the utmost peace or resisting and fighting every step of the way.

When we are more aware of the larger cosmic themes in play, we are able to have a more heart-centered experience of humanity’s evolution, no matter how many loved ones, close friends, or neighbors must fight their fight before they are able to fully wake up.

Indeed, this is an intense time on planet Earth, but we have been primed over many lifetimes to call in a new heart-centered consciousness by the space we hold and the inner work being completed.

As the throat chakra continues to open and stabilize, it is a time to offer forgiveness, whether we have gotten lost in blame or experiencing the blame of others.

 Forgiveness doesn’t make anything 'okay'. Instead, it’s our most heart-centered way of acknowledging unconscious behavior as a state of survival that overtakes the awareness of those who are unaware of the deeper healing journey causing outcomes and events to manifest with precision.

Because humanity has ventured out of the identity of mind, but hasn’t quite landed in the openness of heart, it will also be a time where mental imbalances amplify and get triggered on a more regular basis.

With virus numbers spiking in many states and countries, and mental illness showcasing the aggressive side of unprocessed pain, it is truly a time in history to hunker down, nestle in, and anchor the light that helps humanity heal by how deeply we make peace with the nature of uncertainty.

To help you clear any lingering fears of uncertainty and embrace it as an agent of greater surrender, please repeat the following mantra:

“I don’t have to know where life is headed to know I AM supported.”

This can be adjusted to satisfy whichever degree of external discord has consumed your attention. Maybe it's, “I don’t have to know where the election is headed to know I AM supported.” Perhaps it's, “I don’t have to know where my health is headed to know I AM supported.” Maybe for you, it's more, “I don’t have to know where 2020 is headed to know I AM supported.” Or even the deepest one of all, “I don’t have to know anything more — to know I AM supported.”

Such a mantra helps you exit the looping mechanism of needing constant mental reassurance, so you may rest in the truth of 'okayness', which is always present, no matter how any situation or scenario plays out.

From this greater surrendered acceptance in the greater cosmic plan waking up in all, you may discover another helpful mantra: “There is peace in uncertainty when I let it guide me.”

As we allow uncertainty to be a way of opening into greater faith by escorting us across the threshold of fear, we come to realize, the majority of fears were only as relevant as our identity was attached to mind-based perceptions of interpretation.

As we allow the throat to empty its history of pain, intending to release it mindfully instead of at anyone’s expense, we venture deeper into a more heart-based identity, where all layers of fear are transformed into renewed expressions of inspiration, courage, passion, and excitement. This is the work at hand for the deeper healing underway, offering you an alternative focus to the chaos and confusion in view.

Once humanity is more rooted in heart-centered consciousness on a collective level, may we begin to see the external progress that matches our path of inner change.

This will happen faster than we may imagine, even when in this current phrase of healing it's so easy to seem light years away.

May we use the mantras offered to make peace with uncertainty and adopt a more patient, tolerant and forgiving spirit as humanity continues its evolutionary inward spiral.

Often in our darkest hours, the brightest light begins to dawn. As we each hold space for the light of unity consciousness to illuminate this world into greater collective balance, we equally offer gratitude for the courage of each soul to undertake this process of transformation for the contributions it makes for Earth’s expansion.

May we be grateful for such a surreal year in history, where the evolution of consciousness cannot permit denial to imprison us in doubt for even a moment longer.

While some may see this period in time as a punishment, it is actually an incredible gift of transformation allowing us to witness the gravity of Ascension up close and personal, whether in its most gritty or graceful expression.


May we hold space as the mind-based shield of humanity’s attachment to certainty dissolves enroute to a more heart-centered way for all. Knowing, the most conscious way to end global conflict is to remove the shields always in search of another fight.

Through the beauty and power of embodied love, may we remember that we don’t have to know where life is headed to know we are supported, simply because -- there is peace in uncertainty when letting it guide us.

Love always wins. Our time is now.

Carbon Footprint of Algorithms

 Students develop tool to predict the carbon footprint of algorithms

On a daily basis, and perhaps without realizing it, most of us are in close contact with advanced AI methods known as deep learning. Deep learning algorithms churn whenever we use Siri or Alexa, when Netflix suggests movies and tv shows based upon our viewing histories, or when we communicate with a website's customer service chatbot.

However, the rapidly evolving technology, one that has otherwise been expected to serve as an effective weapon against climate change, has a downside that many people are unaware of -- sky high energy consumption. Artificial intelligence, and particularly the subfield of deep learning, appears likely to become a significant climate culprit should industry trends continue. In only six years -- from 2012 to 2018 -- the compute needed for deep learning has grown 300,000%. However, the energy consumption and carbon footprint associated with developing algorithms is rarely measured, despite numerous studies that clearly demonstrate the growing problem.

In response to the problem, two students at the University of Copenhagen's Department of Computer Science, Lasse F. Wolff Anthony and Benjamin Kanding, together with Assistant Professor Raghavendra Selvan, have developed a software programme they call Carbontracker. The programme can calculate and predict the energy consumption and CO2 emissions of training deep learning models.

"Developments in this field are going insanely fast and deep learning models are constantly becoming larger in scale and more advanced. Right now, there is exponential growth. And that means an increasing energy consumption that most people seem not to think about," according to Lasse F. Wolff Anthony.

One training session = the annual energy consumption of 126 Danish homes

Deep learning training is the process during which the mathematical model learns to recognize patterns in large datasets. It's an energy-intensive process that takes place on specialized, power-intensive hardware running 24 hours a day.

"As datasets grow larger by the day, the problems that algorithms need to solve become more and more complex," states Benjamin Kanding.

One of the biggest deep learning models developed thus far is the advanced language model known as GPT-3. In a single training session, it is estimated to use the equivalent of a year's energy consumption of 126 Danish homes, and emit the same amount of CO2 as 700,000 kilometres of driving.

"Within a few years, there will probably be several models that are many times larger," says Lasse F. Wolff Anthony.

Room for improvement

"Should the trend continue, artificial intelligence could end up being a significant contributor to climate change. Jamming the brakes on technological development is not the point. These developments offer fantastic opportunities for helping our climate. Instead, it is about becoming aware of the problem and thinking: How might we improve?" explains Benjamin Kanding.

The idea of Carbontracker, which is a free programme, is to provide the field with a foundation for reducing the climate impact of models. Among other things, the programme gathers information on how much CO2 is used to produce energy in whichever region the deep learning training is taking place. Doing so makes it possible to convert energy consumption into CO2 emission predictions.

Among their recommendations, the two computer science students suggest that deep learning practitioners look at when their model trainings take place, as power is not equally green over a 24-hour period, as well as what type of hardware and algorithms they deploy.

"It is possible to reduce the climate impact significantly. For example, it is relevant if one opts to train their model in Estonia or Sweden, where the carbon footprint of a model training can be reduced by more than 60 times thanks to greener energy supplies. Algorithms also vary greatly in their energy efficiency. Some require less compute, and thereby less energy, to achieve similar results. If one can tune these types of parameters, things can change considerably," concludes Lasse F. Wolff Anthony.

Galaxies Trapped in the Web of a Supermassive Black Hole

 ESO telescope spots galaxies trapped in the web of a supermassive black hole

Astronomers have found six galaxies lying around a supermassive black hole when the Universe was less than a billion years old. This is the first time such a close grouping has been seen so soon after the Big Bang and the finding helps us better understand how supermassive black holes formed and grew so quickly. It supports the theory that black holes can grow rapidly within large structures which contain plenty of gas to fuel them.

The very first black holes, thought to have formed from the collapse of the first stars, must have grown very fast to reach masses of a billion suns within the first 0.9 billion years of the Universe's life. But astronomers have struggled to explain how sufficiently large amounts of "black hole fuel" could have been available to enable these objects to grow to such enormous sizes in such a short time. The new-found structure offers a likely explanation: the "spider's web" and the galaxies within it contain enough gas to provide the fuel that the central black hole needs to quickly become a supermassive giant.

But how did such large web-like structures form in the first place? Astronomers think giant halos of mysterious dark matter are key. These large regions of invisible matter are thought to attract huge amounts of gas in the early Universe; together, the gas and the invisible dark matter form the web-like structures where galaxies and black holes can evolve.

"Our finding lends support to the idea that the most distant and massive black holes form and grow within massive dark matter halos in large-scale structures, and that the absence of earlier detections of such structures was likely due to observational limitations," says Colin Norman of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, US, also a co-author on the study.

The galaxies now detected are some of the faintest that current telescopes can observe. This discovery required observations over several hours using the largest optical telescopes available, including ESO's VLT. Using the MUSE and FORS2 instruments on the VLT at ESO's Paranal Observatory in the Chilean Atacama Desert, the team confirmed the link between four of the six galaxies and the black hole. "We believe we have just seen the tip of the iceberg, and that the few galaxies discovered so far around this supermassive black hole are only the brightest ones," said co-author Barbara Balmaverde, an astronomer at INAF in Torino, Italy.

These results contribute to our understanding of how supermassive black holes and large cosmic structures formed and evolved. ESO's Extremely Large Telescope, currently under construction in Chile, will be able to build on this research by observing many more fainter galaxies around massive black holes in the early Universe using its powerful instruments.

Newest on our Solar System

Where were Jupiter and Saturn born?
New work led by Carnegie's Matt Clement reveals the likely original locations of Saturn and Jupiter. These findings refine our understanding of the forces that determined our Solar System's unusual architecture, including the ejection of an additional planet between Saturn and Uranus, ensuring that only small, rocky planets, like Earth, formed inward of Jupiter.

In its youth, our Sun was surrounded by a rotating disk of gas and dust from which the planets were born. The orbits of early formed planets were thought to be initially close-packed and circular, but gravitational interactions between the larger objects perturbed the arrangement and caused the baby giant planets to rapidly reshuffle, creating the configuration we see today.

"We now know that there are thousands of planetary systems in our Milky Way galaxy alone," Clement said. "But it turns out that the arrangement of planets in our own Solar System is highly unusual, so we are using models to reverse engineer and replicate its formative processes. This is a bit like trying to figure out what happened in a car crash after the fact -- how fast were the cars going, in what directions, and so on."

Clement and his co-authors -- Carnegie's John Chambers, Sean Raymond of the University of Bordeaux, Nathan Kaib of University of Oklahoma, Rogerio Deienno of the Southwest Research Institute, and André Izidoro of Rice University -- conducted 6,000 simulations of our Solar System's evolution, revealing an unexpected detail about Jupiter and Saturn's original relationship.

Jupiter in its infancy was thought to orbit the Sun three times for every two orbits that Saturn completed. But this arrangement is not able to satisfactorily explain the configuration of the giant planets that we see today. The team's models showed that a ratio of two Jupiter orbits to one Saturnian orbit more consistently produced results that look like our familiar planetary architecture.

"This indicates that while our Solar System is a bit of an oddball, it wasn't always the case," explained Clement, who is presenting the team's work at the American Astronomical Society's Division for Planetary Sciences virtual meeting today. "What's more, now that we've established the effectiveness of this model, we can use it to help us look at the formation of the terrestrial planets, including our own, and to perhaps inform our ability to look for similar systems elsewhere that could have the potential to host life."

The model also showed that the positions of Uranus and Neptune were shaped by the mass of the Kuiper belt -- an icy region on the Solar System's edges composed of dwarf planets and planetoids of which Pluto is the largest member -- and by an ice giant planet that was kicked out in the Solar System's infancy. 

11 11



Some numerologists and New Age philosophies believe that events linked to the time 11:11 appear more often than can be explained by chance or coincidence and is an example of synchronicity. Some authors claim that seeing 11:11 on a clock is an auspicious sign. Others claim that 11:11 signals a spirit presence

Search for a New Humanity

 In all his dialogues, the aim of Daisaku Ikeda has been to find a meeting point for the great traditions of East and West. As spiritual leader of an international lay Buddhist movement with eleven million followers, he is a knowledgeable spokesman for the Asian tradition. And in his partner in this latest dialogue - educationalist and philosopher Josef Derbolav - he has found a wise and accomplished voice from the West. The two men explore a wide range of topics, beginning with a discussion of the tension between tradition and modernity in Japan and elsewhere. They go on to compare humanism in East and West, the role in society of ethics and religion, and the encounter between Christianity and Buddhism.Focusing on the central topic of education, and the business of changing attitudes and minds, their discussion zeroes in on concrete problems and issues: education and political authority; absenteeism and violence in schools; and juvenile delinquency.

The dialogue concludes with a reflection on the future for the human race, looking to an inner revolution - a radical alteration in our way of thinking - which will conquer the daunting problems currently facing the planet and its people.
