… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Green group takes Dutch state to court over air pollution

DutchNews, August 21, 2017

Environmental organisation Milieudefensie is taking the Dutch government to court this week, demanding it takes immediate action to ensure air quality meets official directives.

The case will be heard by judges in The Hague on Wednesday. Milieudefensie claims that the government has been damaging citizens’ health for years. ‘Every day we breathe in unhealthy air and that means tens of thousands of people get ill and thousands die as a consequence,’ a spokesman told the Parool

The paper said a recent health board report revealed the air quality in Amsterdam has not improved in recent years and concentrations of nitrogen dioxide have worsened.

"... This is controversial. The planet can't just "change the water". It does it instead with a "reboot of life in the ocean" using the water cycle. Watch for evidence of this as it occurs, and then remember this channel. This weather cycle is to refresh the life in the ocean so that everyone on the planet will have needed food from the ocean. Gaia does this by itself, has done it before, and it does it for a reason - so it will not stagnate.

Dear ones, indeed, you have put compromising things into the air and the water, but it has not caused this cycle. We have said for a very long time, stop killing the environment! The reason? It's going to kill you, not Gaia. Gaia is spectacularly resilient and will survive anything you do. However, it is you who may not survive if you continue polluting. All this is starting to change with your awareness, and you're starting to see this and move with it. But Humans are not causing the current weather shift. This will be known eventually.

What is happening has happened before, and it's almost like a reboot for the oceans and it carries a lot of dichotomous events. You're going to see reports of a dying ocean, but at the same time you're going to see unusual reports of too many fish and other sea life in places that were supposed to have a decline. You're going to see the life cycle of the ocean itself start to change and reboot.  ..."

Dutch banks and insurers fined €2.15bn since 2008 crisis

DutchNews, August 15, 2017


Large Dutch banks and insurance companies have been fined a combined €2.15bn since the global credit crisis broke out 10 years ago this summer, the Financieele Dagblad revealed on Tuesday. 

But the lion’s share of the fines was awarded to foreign financial watchdogs, the FD said. Only about €100m found its way to Dutch authorities. 

The credit crisis began when US banks began packaging low-grade mortgages and selling them as blue chip products. Huge fines were placed on offenders: US Authorities alone were awarded $150bn. 

utch banks and insurers were involved in the malpractice as well, but of the fines levied on them, €1.9bn was awarded to American authorities and €141m to their British counterparts.

Men at centre of contaminated egg scandal must stay in jail, court says

DutchNews, August 15, 2017

The directors of a Dutch company said to be at the heart of Europe’s contaminated egg scandal have been remanded in custody for two weeks while the investigation continues. 

The Chickfriend bosses – Martin van der B aged 31 and Mathijs IJ aged 24 – were arrested last Thursday. They face charges of endangering public health by supplying the pesticide fipronil to poultry farmers. They are also suspected of dealing in a banned substance.

Fipronil is banned from use in circumstances where it could enter the food chain, but is a key ingredient in some flea preparations used on cats and dogs. 

The two are being kept in ‘isolation’ which means they are not allowed any contact with the outside world apart from their lawyer. 

Millions of eggs and tens of thousands of chickens have been destroyed because of the scandal. Experts put the damage to the Dutch poultry sector at €150m.

Van Gogh goes virtual as 'Sunflowers' unite via livestream

Yahoo – AFP, August 13, 2017

Five versions of Dutch master Vincent van Gogh's painting "Sunflowers" will
be united online (AFP Photo/LEON NEAL)

The Hague (AFP) - Five versions of Vincent van Gogh's masterpiece painting "Sunflowers" will be united across three continents for the first time on Monday via a consecutive livestream feed, the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam has said.

"On Monday... Facebook is hosting five consecutive livestreams in which international museum directors and conservators present the version of Sunflowers in their own institution," the museum said on its website.

"Five different Sunflowers paintings will be reunited in this way for the first time in history."

The livestream video in which the participating museums will each offer their insights into the different versions of Sunflowers will begin with London's National Gallery at 1650 GMT.

Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum will follow at 1710 GMT, before handing the baton to the Neue Pinakothek in Munich at 1730, with the Philadelphia Museum of Art showing off its version at 1750 GMT.

Finally, a previously recorded video made by the Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art in Tokyo will be played at 1810 GMT.

"For generations now, Van Gogh's 'Sunflowers' have inspired people throughout the world," the Amsterdam museum's director Axel Rueger said.

"But because the five paintings are spread across different continents, it has never been possible to view them together."

"That has now changed. We're immensely proud of this milestone, which aligns perfectly with the Van Gogh Museum’s mission: to make the life and work of Vincent van Gogh accessible," Rueger said in the statement.

The Sunflowers paintings, which rank among the Dutch master's most famous works, were painted between 1888-89 while Van Gogh was living in Arles in the south of France.

Sunflowers had a special significance for Van Gogh, who once wrote in a letter to a friend that they conveyed "gratitude".

Willem van Gogh, the great-grandson of Vincent's brother Theo van Gogh and who is an advisor to the Van Gogh Museums' administrators, also describes his personal memories of the Sunflowers in this digital exhibition.

"Each generation forms a new, highly personal bond with these works," Willem van Gogh said.

For those who cannot wait until Monday evening, the various museums have put together a virtual display on their Facebook pages where the five paintings can be viewed together in a virtual gallery, called "Sunflowers 360".

Four-goal Dutch win women's Euro for first time

Euro 2017 football tournament on August 6, 2017 (AFP Photo/JOHN THYS)

Enschede (Netherlands) (AFP) - A brace from Vivianne Miedema led hosts Netherlands to a 4-2 win over Denmark and their first women's Euro title in Enschede on Sunday.

Miedema pulled the hosts level at 1-1 on ten minutes and added her second goal two minutes from the end to round off the scoring, with Lieke Martens and skipper Sherida Spitse also scoring for the champions.

Denmark took the lead as Nadia Nadim scored from the penalty spot on six minutes after Kika van Es had brought down Sanne Troelsgaard in the box.

Miedema then fired home a superb cross from right winger Shanice van de Sanden who had outsprinted Cecilie Sandvej on the wing.

Martens turned with the ball just outside the box in the 28th minute and her low left-footer beat diving Danish keeper Stina Petersen at her left post.

The valiant Danes equalised on 33 minutes when skipper Pernille Harder picked up a long pass on the right wing, took it inside the box and wrong-footed Dutch keeper Sari van Veenendaal, scoring with a low left-foot shot to her left post.

Spitse then scored five minutes after the break with a low shot from a free-kick and Miedema made it 4-2 after fooling a defender inside the box and beating Petersen with a low shot in the 89th minute.

The Dutch are only the fourth team to lift the trophy after eight-time champions Germany, two-time winners Norway and Sweden, who won the first edition in 1984.

"It was an open match, both teams played to win of course," said Dutch coach Sarina Wiegman.

"There were two teams who really wanted to play football. A match with six goals, that's very important for women's football as well."

"We've played six amazing games and today we showed that even if we get behind in the game we can still change the game," said Miedema, pointing out the champions' perfect record at the tournament.

"The moment we scored for 3-2, I just thought -— it's not going to go wrong again," added the 21-year-old new Arsenal signing from Bayern Munich.

"We played so much better in the second half and I think we deserved to win the tournament."

Denmark, like the Dutch playing in their first final, made two changes in their starting line-up as Sofie Junge Pedersen replaced midfielder Line Jensen, out with a torn knee ligament, while Sandvej came in for left-back Line Roddik.

Propelled by a sold-out Twente stadium in Enschede, the Dutch dominated the early minutes of a very lively first half, but Denmark's first goal levelled the situation on the pitch.

Martens could have extended her scoring record after 15 minutes, when van de Sanden's low cross found her inside the box, but Petersen had little trouble clearing her weak shot.

Nadim had two good chances to add to her opener, but her one-on-one with Van Veenendaal ended in the hands of the Dutch keeper and then she missed a cross.

In the second half, Van Es sent a long-range shot wide, Petersen superbly stopped Miedema's blast from long range and Jackie Groenen narrowly missed from long range.

At the other end, Katrine Veje's attempt from inside the box missed the Dutch goal, just like a rebound from a corner by substitute Frederikke Thogersen.

Troelsgaard missed the top corner by an inch five minutes from the end as the Danes pushed for an equaliser.

"The Dutch team scored more goals than us and to be quite honest the Dutch team was the best team in the tournament," said Denmark coach Nils Nielsen.

"It's not easy to play at home, it's so easy to disappoint everybody, but they didn't, they performed so well."

"I am very very proud of my team, we have had so many problems and they kept fighting right until the end."

Belgium admits it kept quiet about 'tainted' eggs probe

Yahoo – AFP, August 5, 2017

eggs on August 1, 2017 (AFP Photo/Piroschka van de Wouw)

Brussels (AFP) - Belgian officials admitted Saturday they knew in early June there was a potential problem over insecticide-contaminated eggs but kept it secret because of an ongoing fraud investigation.

"We knew since early June there was potentially a problem with fipronil in the poultry sector," Katrien Stragier, a spokeswoman for Belgium's food safety agency (AFSCA), told Flemish television VRT.

"We immediately launched an investigation and we also informed the prosecutor because it was a matter of possible fraud," she added.

"From that point on the secrecy of the inquiry took precedent. We understand that people have questions about public health and we are trying to answer them," she added.

Contacted by AFP over the past few days, the prosecutor in Antwerp handling the case refused to give out any information on the specific orders of the investigating judge.

Belgian supermarkets have cleared eggs from the shelves of supermarkets as a precautionary measure while awaiting the results of tests.

In Germany and the Netherlands several million eggs from Dutch farms have already been recalled.

German Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt pressed the authorities, particularly in Belgium and The Netherlands, to clear up the situation.

"Someone has clearly proceeded with criminal intent to contaminate (the eggs) with a banned product," Schmidt told the daily Bild.

Dutch officials closed down 180 businesses earlier in the week and after tests, the Dutch food authority (NVWA) said 138 poultry farms -- about a fifth of those in the country -- would remain closed.

One batch of eggs posing in particular posed "an acute danger to public health", the agency said.

Eggs from another 59 farms contained high enough levels of the insecticide, fipronil, for the food authority to warn against any children eating them.

Fipronil is commonly used in veterinary products to get rid of fleas, lice and ticks. It is banned from being used to treat animals destined for human consumption, such as chickens.

In large quantities, the insecticide is considered to be "moderately hazardous" according to the World Health Organization, and can have dangerous effects on people's kidneys, liver and thyroid glands.

Dutch court won’t extradite drugs suspects to Belgium, queries prison conditions

DutchNews, August 2, 2017

A Dutch court has refused to extradite eight suspects facing drugs charges in Belgium to the Belgian authorities, saying it needed more information about prison conditions there. 

The eight are thought to be part of an international gang which has been smuggling drugs into Europe from South America and were arrested in a joint Dutch Belgian operation. 

However, judges in Amsterdam said they would not hand over the men to face trial because of concerns about the state of Belgian prisons. The Council of Europe’s Committee for the Prevention of Torture said last month that conditions in Belgium’s prisons were the worst it had seen in Europe, particularly in terms of overcrowding. 

‘The court must refuse a transfer if there is talk in the requesting country of a fundamental violation of human rights,’ the court said in its ruling. 

All extraditions to Belgium have now been suspended pending further research. Last year, the Netherlands also stopped extraditions to Belgium during a prison officers’ strike.

Refugees, EU nationals and Indians boost Dutch population growth

DutchNews, July 31, 2017


Migration continued to be the most important factor in Dutch population growth in the first half of 2017, the national statistics office CBS said on Monday. 

Roughly 100,000 people became resident in the Netherlands in the six months ending 30 June, while 69,000 left the country, making for an increase of 31,000 in the population in the first half. 

In addition, 82,000 children were born in the six month period while 78,000 people died, adding a further 4,000 to the total. 

Syrian refugees accounted for the bulk of the new arrivals, adding some 10,000 to the total. Some 4,000 more Poles arrived in the Netherlands than left and the Indian population also grew by 1,500, the CBS said. 

The population of the Netherlands topped 17 million at the beginning of this year.

“…  3 - Longer Life is Going to Happen, But…

Here is one that is a review. We keep bringing it up because Humans don't believe it. If you're going to start living longer, there are those who are frightened that there will be overpopulation. You've seen the way it is so far, and the geometric progression of mathematics is absolute and you cannot change it. So if you look at the population of the earth and how much it has shifted in the last two decades, it's frightening to you. What would change that progression?

The answer is simple, but requires a change in thinking. The answer is a civilization on the planet who understands a new survival scenario. Instead of a basic population who has been told to have a lot of children to enhance the race [old survival], they begin to understand the logic of a new scenario. The Akashic wisdom of the ages will start to creep in with a basic survival scenario shift. Not every single woman will look at herself and say, "The clock is ticking," but instead can say, "I have been a mother 14 times in a row. I'm going to sit this one out." It's a woman who understands that there is no loss or guilt in this, and actually feels that the new survival attribute is to keep the family small or not at all! Also, as we have said before, even those who are currently ignorant of population control will figure out what is causing babies to be born [Kryon joke].

Part of the new Africa will be education and healing, and eventually a zero population growth, just like some of the first-world nations currently have. Those who are currently tied to a spiritual doctrine will actually have that doctrine changed (watch for it) regarding Human birth. Then they will be able to make free choice that is appropriate even within the establishment of organized religion. You see, things are going to change where common sense will say, "Perhaps it would help the planet if I didn't have children or perhaps just one child." Then the obvious, "Perhaps I can exist economically better and be wiser with just one. It will help the one!" Watch for these changes. For those of you who are steeped in the tradition of the doctrines and would say that sounds outrageously impossible, I give you the new coming pope [Kryon smile]. For those of you who feel that uncontrolled procreation is inevitable, I encourage you to see statistics you haven't seen or didn't care to look at yet about what first-world countries have already accomplished on their own, without any mandates. It's already happening. That was number three.….”

‘Dear travellers, your train will now be departing from..’

DutchNews, July 28, 2017

Dutch Rail will be addressing the public with the gender neutral ‘Dear traveller’ in a move to be more inclusive. 

The rail company is following in the footsteps of London Underground which is addressing its travellers with a slighty less formal ‘Hello everyone’. In a similar move Amsterdam city council recently presented a language guide to encourage staff to use ‘Amsterdammers’ instead of ‘ladies and gentlemen’. 

According to an NS press release the company considered an announcement that went ‘Dear ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, LGBTQIA+’ too long and cumbersome and decided to plump for ‘Dear travellers’, both in its announcements and its correspondence. 

Logical

‘It’s a small change but a logical one. Why not call people by what they are to us, i.e. dear travellers? Our train staff want everybody to feel welcome. We also feel that ladies and gentlemen is a bit formal for this day and age,’ NS director Roger van Boxtel said. 

‘Ladies and gentlemen’ will not be banned but the new standard will be ‘Dear travellers’, the NS said. 

According to Marco Altena of Trainbow, an organisation that promotes diversity in the NS, the move is an encouraging one. ‘The group of transgender people is becoming more visible and this has great symbolic value. Everyone feels included with this new form of addressing people, including people who feel neither like a ‘lady’ nor a ‘gentleman’.’

From December 10, when the new railway schedule will be introduced, all 24,000 automatically generated announcements on Dutch trains will have been adapted. Intercity train staff, who do their own announcements, will be asked to conform to the new standard, NS said.
