However, what we overlook and has a much greater value to us as a nation is the internet itself.  The internet is critical infrastructure to the United States.  We use the internet for every communication that businesses rely on every day.  If an adversary didn’t target our power plants but they did target the core routers, the backbones that tie our internet connections together, entire parts of the United States could be cut off.  They could be shunted offline, and we would go dark in terms of our economy and our business for minutes, hours, days.  That would have a tremendous impact on us as a society and it would have a policy backlash.

The solution however is not to give the government more secret authorities to put kill switches and monitors and snooping devices on the internet.  It’s to reorder our priorities for how we deal with threats to the security of our critical infrastructure, for our electronic infrastructure.  And what that means is taking bodies like the National Security Agency that have traditionally been about securing the nation and making sure that that’s their first focus.     -Edward Snowden     http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/next/military/snowden-transcript/

In reality, though, One Belt, One Road (Silk Road Initiative) is all about China.  The program’s designed to forward Beijing’s strategic and economic interests around the world–at the expense of the West’s–and offer lucrative opportunities abroad for Chinese companies enduring a slowdown at home.  In the end it’s a boondoggle that could set back China’s reform, expose its banks to financial risk, and alienate the very nations it’s meant to woo.     http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-11-25/china-s-new-silk-road-dream

Do not think then that we of the Darjeeling Council assess your lifestreams as being anything less than conquering heroes and heroines.   Yes, I, El Morya, say to you it is so, and you had better believe it!

For you do not acknowledge that you are conquering heroes and heroines!  You do not acknowledge that you have had many many victories both great and small!  Instead you look at yourselves with discouragement and disparagement!  If you continue to do this, then how will you suddenly see yourselves as worthy to go forth and champion the cause of those bright souls who are just waiting, waiting, waiting to meet you?   They literally dream of being God-taught by you and of rejoicing in your sense of self-worth, which they in turn will make their own…

Whatever format or formats you choose, do your research and take action when you are ready to meet the needs of those who respond. Make haste, for the seasons fly, the worlds are turning, and the forces of Evil are mounting.  And if you think you have seen the end of Armageddon, I tell you, you have not!  For the worst of Armageddon is yet to come….

  Because Saint Germain has placed this gift in your hands you have the opportunity to assist in the fulfillment of the divine plan of every man, woman and child, every babe in arms!  You who are alive and well on Earth being of sound mind and body and having hearts of gold–you can run with the violet flame and you can thereby make all the difference!   By giving your dynamic violet-flame decrees, you can work the works of alchemical change.       -El Morya:  10-8-1995 at RTR, Montana

The report shows how just 14 percent of migrants to Russia in 2014 were university graduates, compared with 42 and 38 percent of Russian migrants to Canada and the U.S. respectively.

The report also demonstrates that Russia’s emigres leave the regions with the highest living standards such as St. Petersburg and the Moscow region as well as the country’s border regions.

Writing on the report’s findings for the independent Dozhd TV channel, Sonia Grossman wrote that emigration continues to “wash away” Russia’s educated, proactive and motivated.  Russia’s upwardly mobile, ambitious youth, “see no opportunities to change their situation for the better,” she said.   https://themoscowtimes.com/news/russias-brain-drain-worse-than-previously-believed-report-55635
