Surely you see it now America! The Great Awakening is arriving at an ever accelerating pace and the Deep-State and their allies in the Mockingbird Media are powerless to stop it [See Issues #002, #005, and #009 for more on Operation Mockingbird and the Great Awakening – OSI:DI.] We have reached the critical mass moment on all fronts. We have reached the Event Horizon.
Phi Beta Iota: The Awan brothers appear to have worked for the Mossad by arrangement with Debbie Wasserman Schultz (which would make her an agent of a foreign power committing treason if proven in a court of law), but other than that, the summary John Hughes provides is well worth reading in full.
A Chinese billionaire with Canadian citizenship has been seized from his apartment at the Four Seasons hotel in Hong Kong and taken to mainland China, a source familiar with the situation told CNN Wednesday.
Andrew Garfield, a U.S citizen since 2010, served in the British military and then as a senior civilian intelligence officer, finishing his U.K. government service as a policy advisor in the UK Ministry of Defense (MOD). His specializations included Counter Terrorism (CT), Counter Insurgency Operations (COIN) and Information Operations (IO).
Robert David Steele is a champion for Peace Intelligence who has sought since 1988 to redirect the craft of intelligence (decision-support) away from spies and secrecy enabling war and waste, toward open sources and methods favorable to peace and prosperity.
Most recently he has lectured in Denmark and Norway on the need for creating a Nordic Peace Intelligence Centre and network for multinational information-sharing and sense-making that relies primarily but not exclusively on Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), the modern domain of which he is the undisputed pioneer. He is the author of all of the major OSINT Handbooks (US Defense Intelligence Agency, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, US Special Operations Forces) and believes the time has come for the Nordics to update and advance the craft of intelligence so as to address the illegal immigrants and other emerging threats that he first forecast from 1989 onwards.
My research and project work focus on the value of scientifically validated communications for business and society, particularly addressing serious issues underlying the debate over global sustainability and centering the innovative new discipline of communication ethics, ‘a philosophy for the information age. Recently, I produced an innovative online text, Citizen Science, employing a digital logic I developed in 2001. This text is supported by online learning tools to deliver digital self-education programmes for world citizens in order to move themselves towards an updated and sustainable social contract grounded in science.
As a founding member of the Institute of Communication Ethics (2001-2008), I undertook the role of coordinating its positioning as a world-leading academic network and centre for a new social science discipline. The group of leading professors and media academics behind the Institute recognised the important multidisciplinary implications of this relatively recent field of human inquiry and have since updated the agenda for communication studies within and between hundreds of University departments.
My Ph.D. research at Radboud University (NED) was completed in 2013. It reported a study of dialogue methods employed by seventy-three multinational corporations and the research concluded with an evaluation of dialogue and participation as the underpinning practice required by democratic systems. The findings resulted in a number of important innovations, forming a coherent programme subsequently channelled into education initiatives such as the UN ‘Education for Sustainable Development’ programme.
Beth Simone Noveck directs The Governance Lab and its MacArthur Research Network on Opening Governance. GovLab designs and tests technology, policy and strategies for fostering more open and collaborative approaches to strengthen the ability of people and institutions to work together to solve problems, make decisions, resolve conflict and govern themselves more effectively and legitimately.
The following list, compiled with the help of my team member Vanessa Cartwright, provides a brief profile of 143 [up from 78 in the original list] fabulous female futurists. It is tricky defining a futurist, so while we have largely selected those who describe themselves as working in this space, we have also included others whose work is largely that of exploring the future. We have limited this list to those who have a significant profile and impact, but I’m sure we have missed some who should be included.

A team of scientists in Denmark just invented a crystalline material that can absorb oxygen with astounding efficiency. How astounding? Well, a single spoonful of the stuff can suck all of the oxygen out of a room. The best part is that it can release it again with just a little bit of heat. Say goodbye to bulky oxygen tanks.
“The material can absorb and release oxygen many times without losing the ability. It is like dipping a sponge in water, squeezing the water out of it and repeating the process over and over again,” says Professor Christine McKenzie who led the research.
“When the substance is saturated with oxygen, it can be compared to an oxygen tank, containing pure oxygen under pressure. The difference is that this material can hold three times as much oxygen.”
