Opening of a Seal

Dear Family,

Since breaking into a major timeline (a.k.a.dimensional) intersection of the next evolutionary cycle on July 17th, we are continuing to undergo a major “life-style” restructuring as well as enduring profoundly deep cellular transmutation. As we recently “broke onto the other side” the shockwaves generated from the sheer impact have been reverberating through our very core.(and our brains and third eye!) The Guardian’s mention this “breaking through the timeline” was akin to the esoteric or biblical reference of the “Opening of a Seal”. If you re-read the annual theme news from January, “The Year of the Indigo” it will give you a clue as to what “seal” they are referring to. The many earthquakes on our planetary body (the macrocosm) this year have been shaking us to get ready to open our own personal body “seal”. (the microcosm). Additionally this “opening seal” and the “mark it left as an imprint on our forehead” created some scarily intense physical symptoms around our skull, brains, nerves and eyes. The recent transmission downloads, and their lucid dream states have contained many variations of geometries, hieroglyphs, hebrew letters, animals as well as flying colors and hearing inner ear ringing tones. Our pineal gland is changing. Our brain is changing. It’s no wonder we have been mostly sequestered and isolated the past few months as this has not been the altered state where one can comfortably “tool around town”.

The Utter Silence

Even though we are left feeling a total void and complete utter “silence” from the multiple explosions of these impacts, we are now beginning to find the “softer ground”. Those shockwaves (the opening of a seal) have been clearing out our spiritual house to remove the repetitive debris of the old systems of mind control behaviors, many of which were embedded or wired in our brains. (i.e. fears, addiction or co-dependent patterns.) Many of us are finally feeling freer from those controls. Some of us are still undergoing the transmutation effects of these new Indigo “Blue Ray” brain activations while others will catch it in the next cycle. After these shockwaves electrified our brains and then bulldozed everything out of our peripheral view – the softer ground finally showed up to bring shape to our new life foundation. We have no certain idea of what’s next – but we can feel the new life foundation is being built!

(This new architectural “life foundation” is also being built in the Universal macrocosm and it is being referenced by the Guardians as the “City Four Square” of the Cosmic Cube Matrix. More below..)

In order to be free we have to “know” that we do indeed have EVERYTHING we will ever need inside of us. And that “everything” is found within the inner space of “utter silence”. The recent surprising shake ups are verifying that core truth to us over and over again. Every time we try to join back into the external chaos, the “Yod of God” (God’s Finger) pushes us back into the utter silence – once again! We are growing much stronger where no hidden darkness or shadow can obscure our vision of really “knowing” the Power of the Eternal Light. As we know it, we become it. And then life as we know it changes forever.

The Wrath of the Lamb Begins

Esoterically the “Power of the Eternal Light” is also being referred to this month as “The Wrath of the Lamb”. According to the Guardians, we have entered the times of which the forces of darkness will fear the Power of the Eternal Light for the first time, and this is being referred to as – “The Wrath of the Lamb”. (As squirmy as I get making any kind of biblical reference, knowing of its many distortions, the archetypes and code in many cases are accurate ways to describe the architecture sequencing of this holographic reality. Since most humans do not understand the natural physics of building a holographic reality, much of the bible code is reduced to linear (egoic) thought forms of metaphor or analysis. Most of which are grossly distorted by those who seek to gain from their misconstrued meaning. From the point of understanding divine consciousness utilizes archetypes and code in order to bring itself into physical matter, it is in such context that the Guardians will speak in these terms from time to time)

The Lamb is represented as the First Power of God’s Light as the human embodiment of the Christ Consciousness. The Christ Consciousness is the same field of energetic intelligence that is referred to as the 12 D field and its “Avatar Matrix”. Also, please note the term “wrath” is not to be misconstrued as judgment, punishment, vengeance or any type of violence or instigated fear upon another. The Christ Consciousness is akin to the gentleness of a Lamb, yet its power becomes evident and then is feared by those who have controlled through “might”. This is the sign of the end times, the changing and evolving consciousness, as we enter the “final conflict” stages during the planetary Ascension Cycle. We are entering the stage of “the Wrath of the Lamb” which signals the beginning of the “changing of the guard” on this planet.

We now understand why we must enter the Dark to Truly Know the Eternal Light of God, and we are able to embrace this new vision. Through understanding this “Universal Law of the Polar Opposites” and by continually facing the darkness with non judgment, we then are able to come into the wisdom of embodying this higher knowledge as a “Universal Christ Consciousness”. Through the process of experiencing extreme polarity (by synthesizing the extremes of energetic opposites) your physical body becomes the alchemized vehicle which holds God’s Inner Eternal Light of Truth. As we allow that Truth to Shine forth from our hearts, it illumines the pathway to Unity – the Universal Christ Consciousness and destiny of Humanity. As we ignite the purity Flame in our own Heart we become the Sacred Fire of All Hearts. As a Flame can be blown out, this Sacred Fire cannot.

The Landing Pad

This month is about finally getting our landing pad, and gaining the ground (feeling more supported, firmly grounded yet more spiritually embodied) we need to operate from our inner core with deeper clarity. That deeper clarity is a pre-requisite for being and living in your “divine purpose”. There is no room for anything else inside of you any longer.

Those of us riding this “New Unity Wave” and its new source coding have been re-aligning ourselves and in many cases are being relocated into new spaces that offer a “steadying” foundation of which to function. At times it has been bewildering and disorienting as it seems the landscape around us is being drastically rearranged with (and without) our personal conscious participation. I have likened these times to be similar as being an actor on a location movie set, and the director has just changed the set around getting ready to film the next action scene. The film and lighting crew (our Guardians and Guidance teams) are scurrying all over the place getting ready for the “big screen moment” to unveil. The Universal energies are connecting to us like our very Divine Director and giving us new landscapes and props to work with in creating our new movie. This time we seem to be getting much more “special effects” star dust and that includes mystery manifestations and last minute surprises. As we stay inside of ourselves, it all feels really good.

Many of us were more than ready (with consciousness battle fatigue) to “receive” more beneficial relationships and supportive environments so it has been a major blessing from the Universe. These new supportive foundations in some cases are physically represented,(moving our primary residences or working areas) or energetically represented ( sudden changes in our relationship to things: i.e. organizations, promotions, new responsibilities, new influences and opportunities around us) or based in resolution of the past circumstances through the forgiveness frequency. (family reconnection or relationship healings from your past memories) Most of the shifts have felt really supportive unless they have involved the loss or exiting of loved ones.

Exiting point

As many of us are aware, there are those that will decide to depart this dimension by dropping their physical bodies. The massive downloads of frequency are extremely harsh on the bodies of the neurological super-sensitive, the emotionally/spiritually disconnected, rigidly mental or dogmatic or those that persist in acting out repetitive destructive behavior. It is this group in the masses that generally have much more trouble with the intensity of frequency requiring changes that result in the cellular transmutation of our physical being. These colossal energies are at a boiling point and the masses will have to willingly make changes or suffer its consequence. Most of us have required retreat or solitude from the pulsating throngs of people that are still running to catch up with (what feels to be) lost time. Depression, escapist tendencies and radical behaviors are likely to increase in the masses for those reasons. For those of us that are preparing for Stewardship/Guardianship roles, it is time to strengthen and be aware for holding loving neutral space for the transitions of those around you.

The Special Op Starseed’s ( or Blue Rays) have another job entirely on group consciousness field repair and that in itself is another set of physics placing demands on the genetic codes held in the bodies. This is not the group I am referring to here. Please note that this exiting point is a choice and if you participate with your bodies healing and do the ‘work” required – your body can and will be fully rehabilitated. Do not feel fear over this issue, as its not ascension symptoms that drop the physical body, it is the ignorance of not knowing or asking to feel guidance or connect to the spiritual bodies. You must participate with your soul or ascension process if you are greatly physically “sick” and you do not want the “exit point” to occur. The Guardian perspective is once you comprehend your soul plan choices, you do not need to execute any pre-written “exit point” in your 3D incarnational plan. You have the choice ALWAYS to change that as you become conscious enough to participate with your personal evolution. You will not get out of the energy balance requirement needed for the original reason of that set up of an exit point in your life plan, however, you can always override an exit point. The original Crystal Blueprint for the Multidimensional God Human never needed to suddenly drop the body, instead conscious exiting or Stargate transmutation was the free option. Trauma and disease pattern used to drop the body was a causation of forgetting our true spiritual connection to the Universe. Remember and LIVE your God connection as your primary reality and the trauma and disease will drop away instead of the body.

The issue is most people are not aware of what is currently happening on the planet and what the task at hand for an evolving body (ascending consciousness) actually is. Many fall into the false ideas of defining labels for imbalances by calling them “diseases” and then getting sucked into the medical system and pharmaceutical routes. It is very hard to transcend this “3D medical reality” to a complete healing if you are still “believing” the medical system is the total “cure” for a sick spiritual body. All disease stems and is preceded from a sick or imbalanced aura or “energy body blueprint”. If one believes that a synthetic chemical or scalpel will entirely cure the cause of the imbalance, then there is a huge hole missing from the approach to healing. This is why so many diseases return back to the body even when the “scalpel” has cut out the tumor or the “sickness” from the body. The entire holistic view needed to heal the bodies energy field is not being accounted for in the current standard of our medical system. Until the energy body is considered as important as the physical body in healing cures, a total healing is rare to occur. This is the danger of the current times as many of us are not aware of how we can heal ourselves through understanding our blueprint. (and simply listening to our body) Every human being has a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual body layer comprising their aura. The aura is the instruction set that controls every function in the body you experience as a physical “self”. It is a major area of vulnerability to manipulate the human species as we have forgotten our multidimensional nature and creational energy blueprint. (It is another reason as to why the controller forces use this angle of compromising health in order to weaken the planetary population. Stay awake and aware of the competing global agenda to instigate the “pestilence program” by controlling our access to alternative health methods and by suppressing our immunity. This is the major trump card which the controllers are putting into aggressive play now. Stay out of fear and quietly gather your resources as you may be guided. We will be given what we need when we ask for it.)

Some of us are the mid wives of the spirit and have been busy working with not only the group astral body soul retrieval but that which is required of this physical dimension. Preparing for other’s bodily transition or drop is not an easy job, yet it is most noble and necessary. This means we have a greater need for “portal jumper’s” that can straddle multiple dimensions of consciousness to keep portals open for others. As we have entered a Universal Intersection Cycle, this allows many beings to leave their physical body at an auspicious point in the timeline which allows for a greater spiritual body connection or a full rehabilitation into the next available “gateway”. Some of them are the preparation crew to re-educate (or heal) the next waves moving through the multiple gateways over the next years of the Ascension Cycle. Some of them are taking the ancestral miasma and genetic defect implication out of the family lineages so they are freed from the future effects of the generations yet to be born.

In any case, bracing yourself and preparing for these abrupt and sometimes surprising passages of people around you with some context can be helpful. When dealing with children or adults before their prime it seems especially harsh for the families of these loved ones. People are seeking answers. Holding the loving space for passage and saying the guided words to heal human hearts will very much be needed in the coming months. Most aptly expressed through the Prayer of Saint Francis, “Lord, Please make me an instrument of your Peace.”

The City Four Square or New Jerusalem

The Guardians have been showing me over the last weeks (in the middle of the night at 3 am) the imprint of the schematic of the Divine Mind of God upon the third eye in the center of our brain. What this means is that the actual Living Divine Plan of God is projected as a geometric schematic of the “Divine Will” blueprint as through Its “All Seeing Eye”. All intermediary lenses of “mind control” (Eye of Yahweh, Eye of Jehovah, Eye of Horus and other religious control mechanisms requiring salvation or redemption) must be broken away in order to “see” the mind of One God. This “All Seeing Eye” of God is coming to reside as the Living Presence in our re-wired brain.

The All Seeing Eye of God projects its Divine Mind blueprint as an imprinted Geometric Tesseract called the Cosmic Cube Matrix. It is the schematic being projected into the brains (and bodies) of the Blue Ray’s at this time, those with the “mark of the lamb” on their foreheads. (as created by the opening of the seal)

This imprint of a Geometric Tesseract is being referred to as the Cosmic Cube Matrix of God’s 144,000.The Cosmic Cube holds the schematic and blueprint to God’s Laws by building the architecture of the “City Four Square”. This represents the Four planes of matter in the Four quadrants of our Universe. This is also representing the four elemental bases of our raw material making up the planes of matter. (Air, Fire, Water, Earth) These four elementals make up the main chemical constituents of our DNA code and are being re-encrypted by the Aurora’s through the “Crystal River”. The City Four Square contains the blueprint of the Solar Christ identity of the 144,000 archetypes of the sons and daughters of God. This new life foundation (the new grid base matter of the 144,000) is necessary in order to focus the Divine Wholeness of God consciousness in the given dispensation of the Ascension. The City Four Square is where the Crystal River Flows and is represented as the “Golden City” archetype that returns God’s Laws back to this creation. Its projection is to be held as embodied by the divine messengers (with the seal of the lamb on their foreheads) of the Cosmic Cube 144 Matrix.

The Blue Ray Families (See Code of the Blue Nile from March news – encoded with the 144,000 genetic imprint) are the first ones embodying this process on the Earth now. It is a part of the Christ Consciousness returning through the Oraphim Blue Ray and the Elohim Creator Gods to reinstall God’s “divine” plan in this density. I am aware the Guardians are suggesting we infuse ourselves with this image as a connection to see a “symbol architecture” of the divine plan of God, as projected through our 3rd eye.

The Guardians mention that although Metatron’s cube appears as a similar geometric function, that this “Cosmic Cube 144” is not the same thing. They describe both ArchAngelic “Metatron” and “Thoth” as the appointed “Scribes of God’s Mind” (had held these geometries in the lower form worlds) that served its purpose in the dark eon that is now coming to an end. As we enter the Cosmic Christ Intelligence and create a direct relationship to God, no intermediary, including a “scribe” is needed.

Through synchronicity this youtube video of a crop circle discovered on July 17, 2010 in the United Kingdom came across my desk. I admit I was overjoyed to see this after being kept up multiple nights staring at this Cosmic Cube in the sky. Here it is for your enjoyment!

The Purge

Since the solstice in June, and as a result of the mega celestial lineup of the last few months, there has been…in addition to many other things…an all-pervasive and collective purging of lack (scarcity-thinking).

We are intermittently touching down in our new lives, grounding so deeply into our bodies and the earth, that these deep-seated root issues of security/safety have been wildly coming up for review and being cleared to make room for our expanded source-based selves to enter the deepest and most physical parts of our lives.

For many, this means tugging at the roots of our most basic survival fears….yuck.  Luckily, we can choose to remain detached from these energies by embracing the truth and reality of love (abundance)…OR…we can choose to be-lie-ve in the reality of fear (lack).  In a holographic world, where all realities are real…which one will be real for you?

These collective and fear-based thought forms have been rising up in so many and swirling about like a tornado of uncontrollable e-motional (ANXIETY/panic) and even physical responses (lower back pain/lower intestinal distress/urogenital discomfort/etc.)…but mostly these expired energies are looking for an exit so collectively we can jump off the karmic wheel and tip the planetary scales toward resonance creation…aka conscious co-creation.

The reason this is so important to see clearly right now is because we are beginning to witness (keyword here) the next wave of energetic/financial restructuring…which means fears will be flying around like pigs in heaven, and bottoming-out will be the norm for the next group of souls readying to rebuild their lives.

As this deeper level excavation takes place, it is important to not partake in any of the fear-based energies of doom and gloom that are rising up for transmutation and permeating the masses. If we get attached to these toxic thought-forms or be-lie-ve that they are true, we can easily get swept up in a wild windstorm of clashing energies and events.  Not the kind of music we want to groove to.

When in doubt, remember that abundance is the natural state of the universe.  We can be self-responsible by creating solid boundaries, follow only the thoughts that feel good (if it doesn’t feel good, it isn’t), and seek the solace of our own internal wisdom knowing that all is perfectly well.

Ignore everything else.

The Flow of All Good Things

If you are really experiencing these energies in an adverse way, realize that any pressure you are feeling is actually resistance to the flow of abundance building up behind the dam of limitations that you unconsciously honor.  To release this pressure…and the flow of all good things behind it…we must zoom out, shift/expand our perspective, clearly see how we are responsible for blocking that flow with any expired/limiting thoughts, and surrender into the existing support and structures in place that we always have to get us through.

It may also be helpful to take note of any emotional re-actions that come up for you during the next few weeks (Practical Magic can be a great support for this) as these reactions will be a clear indication of the blocks you are still honoring with regard to accepting full abundance into your life.  Whatever needs to be released in order for you to take the major step forward into manifesting with your full potential will tantalize you until it is seen from a higher perspective, so keep in mind that anything you experience outside of abundance is temporary until you are re-connected with your (power) Source.

I can personally attest to the fact that once we begin to step fully into our authentic selves (BE who we came here to BE) the reality of lack shifts completely and we are rapidly immersed in the flow of all good things.  Since the March equinox of this year, abundance has been flowing into my life with such increasing force that it is hard to believe that exactly a year ago this time I was unable to pay my utility bills and while trying to rescue my house from public auction.

The same shift from lack to abundance is happening or trying to happen for all of us…the universal elixir of creation is begging to supply for those with pure heart resonance, and the messages will get louder and louder if we continue to resist its magic with our limitations and feelings of unworthiness.  The time is now to step into our full power and to accept the grace of God’s heavenly flow in all ways…regardless of how the outside world is still operating.

Yes, there will continue to be social & economic downturns, devastating catastrophes and global calamities… but this is none of our business.  Our business is in new creation…in abundance… in wellness…in joy… and in grounding the pure divine inspiration that we have worked for over a decade to share with others. We must fully exercise our power to become self-sustainable conscious co-creators and living examples of what’s possible for our planet and her people.

The Cosmic Pulse

And just to be clear…this new level of abundance is not just arriving in the form of money…although that’s part of it…but in the form of accessing new potentials and (higher-level) ideas & opportunities…vibrationally aligned relationships, partnerships & heart-based supports/connections…and cosmic bursts of creativity & clarity that will, quite literally, blow your mind.

Aligning with this cosmic pulse (rhythm of universal flow)… which is what we have been doing for several years through clearing all that sticky soul-goo…always places us at the crux of perfect place and timing, enabling us to leverage the might of the universe with our conscious will and in a way that requires very little effort.

This month we will be hooking deeper into the intuitive rhythm of non-action & action/allowing & doing which will offer us a much more visceral understanding of the creation process, how to manage all the new potentials, and the many rewards of linking into this automated classification system where all parts work cooperatively for the function of the whole.

This flow of goodness is so natural, so organic, that its easy to forget that there was ever another way…and it is so powerful that it borders on stressful because there is so much here to choose from…so many possibilities that seeing from an expired perspective (that we must do everything ourselves) can be overwhelming.

And this is just the beginning…

Finalizing Details

If you are feeling these crashing waves of overwhelm from the energy of new beginnings…even if your physical body hasn’t quite caught up yet… know that the rest of September (and now that Mercury is going direct) will offer us the ability to temper a much-needed balance and learn how to ground and manage these energies while we simultaneously continue to clean up the last remnants of the past, seal-up the old, and finalize all lingering details.

Any old unresolved issues that need tending to will be thrusted into our view this month so that we can complete the past before the celestial door slams shut for good.  In some cases, there will be lingering past details that will continue to wrap up over the remainder of the year, however, dealing with them head-on will be key this month. As always, these shifts are carried out in a slow and manageable process…and one that we should be grateful for (?!@#%^!)…so as to not leave any stone unturned.

In the meantime, the way forward is always the same… allow yourself to be exactly where you are…without resistance and in full acceptance of what is… while knowing that whatever you are experiencing that is in opposition to your heart-felt desires is only a past mis-creation playing itself out and necessary to walk through in order to advance to the next level.

In other words, the only way around is through.

See you in the flow!

Record level of US airstrikes hit Afghan militants

Posted by Admin on September 15, 2010

ISLAMABAD – Drone aircraft unleashed two missile attacks in a lawless tribal region on the Afghan border Tuesday, making September the most intense period of U.S. strikes in Pakistan since they began in 2004, intelligence officials said.

The stepped-up campaign is focused on a small area of farming villages and mountainous, thickly forested terrain controlled by theHaqqani network, a ruthless American foe in Afghanistan, U.S. officials say. There is some evidence the network is being squeezed as a result, one official said.

American officials said the airstrikes were designed to degrade the Haqqanis’ operations on the Pakistani side of the border, creating a “hammer-and-anvil” effect as U.S. special operations forces carry out raids against their fighters across the frontier in Afghanistan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss ongoing classified operations.

The missiles have killed more than 50 people in 12 strikes since Sept. 2 in the Pakistani region of North Waziristan, according to an Associated Press tally based on Pakistani intelligence officials‘ reports. Many struck around Datta Khel, a town of about 40,000 people that sits on a strategically vital road to the Afghan border.

The border region has long been a refuge for Islamist extremists from around the world. Osama Bin Laden and other al-Qaida leaders are believed to have fled there after the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

U.S. and Pakistani intelligence officials said most of this month’s strikes have targeted the forces of Jalaluddin and Sirajuddin Haqqani, a former anti-Soviet commander and his son who are now battling American forces in eastern Afghanistan.

The raids targeting the group in Afghanistan are led mainly by the Joint Special Operations Command. Such raids across Afghanistan are now more frequent than at any previous time in the nearly nine-year war, with some 4,000 recorded between May and August as special operations numbers were boosted by troops arriving from Iraq.

The raids have focused on the Haqqanis for the last two years, officials said.

A senior American intelligence official in Afghanistan said the U.S. had reports that Haqqani commanders were under pressure from the operations.

“We’re seeing from some of the raids that some of the more senior guys are trying to move back into Pakistan,” the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss matters of intelligence.

The official cautioned that the Haqqanis often employ military disinformation. And so far, the official said, neither the special operations raids nor the missile strikes on the Pakistan side of the border appear to have degraded the militants’ ability to fill the ranks of the slain.

But sometimes, the U.S. official said, the replacements are far less competent than their predecessors.

The Pakistan army has launched several offensives in the tribal regions over the last 2 1/2 years, but has not moved in force into North Waziristan. The U.S. is unable to send ground forces into Pakistani territory, and must rely on the drone strikes.

A major offensive in North Waziristan became even less feasible last month after massive flooding forced tens of thousands of Pakistani soldiers to focus exclusively on rescuing stranded victims, redirecting flood waters and rebuilding damaged infrastructure.

Last month also saw a lull in U.S. airstrikes, until an attack on Sept. 2 began days of repetitive missile attacks.

U.S. officials did not discuss specific reasons for the surge of airstrikes this month. A former American military official said poor weather often hampers drone operations.

Until now, the highest number of airstrikes inside Pakistan in a single month had been the 11 launched in January 2010 after a suicide bomber killed a Jordanian intelligence officer and seven CIA employees at a base in Afghanistan.

“Usually when there’s this type of intensity in strikes, they’re going after something specific,” Bill Roggio, of the Long War Journal, which tracks the strikes, said of this month’s attacks. “They hit it, watch what moves, then hit it again. It becomes an intel feedback loop,” that fuels further strikes, he said.

U.S. officials do not publicly acknowledge the missile strikes but have said privately that they have killed several senior Taliban and al-Qaida militants and scores of foot soldiers in a region largely out of the control of the Pakistani state.

Critics say innocents are also killed, fueling support for the insurgency.

A Pakistani intelligence official told the AP that “most of the fighters killed in recent weeks are from the Haqqani network,” adding that Arab militants had also been killed. He spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the topic.

“We live in constant fear,” said Munawar Khan, 28, who lives in the nearby village of Darpa Khel. “We have missile strikes every day.”

U.S. forces began targeting Pakistan’s tribal regions with aerial drones in 2004 but the number of strikes soared in 2008 and has been steadily climbing since then, with nearly 70 attacks this year, according to an AP tally.

There has been little evident public or official outrage inside Pakistan in the wake of September’s airstrikes, but the Pakistani government says it has not altered its long-standing objection to such attacks, which have also targeted Pakistani Taliban militants who carry out attacks inside the country.

“The position of the army and government is the same, that it harms more than it helps,” said Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas, an army spokesman.

The Haqqanis worked closely with Pakistan’s intelligence service during the anti-Soviet war and have not waged attacks inside Pakistan.

In Afghanistan, however, they often use suicide bombs in civilian areas and do not let suicide bombers back out of an attack, unlike the Afghan Taliban, the U.S. intelligence official told The Associated Press.

There’s some disagreement in U.S. intelligence ranks as to whether the Haqqanis are part of the Taliban, or simply allied with them in what an intelligence official in the U.S. called “a marriage of convenience.”

Many in the Haqqani leadership have roles as Taliban commanders. But officials say the Haqqanis seek dominion only over the areas in which they hold sway — Afghanistan’s mountainous eastern provinces of Paktika, Paktia, and Khost, stretching to the outskirts of the capital, Kabul. The Taliban, by contrast, want to take over the whole country. The two ruled those areas side by side when the Taliban governed Afghanistan — though Haqqani was subservient to Taliban ruler Mullah Omar and did not have independence.

Here is the Marketwatch article on the California gas explosion:

California tragedy reveals danger, rarity of gas blasts

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — The natural-gas explosion that rocked a San Francisco suburb Thursday evening serves as a stark reminder of the dangers posed by the pressure cooker of pipelines crisscrossing the country.

The vast U.S. natural-gas network consists of more than 200,000 miles of interstate pipelines, another 85,000 miles for intrastate transmission and still another 40,000 miles of pipe to connect gas-extraction wells to processing facilities.
