JC Cole: US Coast Guard shuts part of lower Mississippi River as bridge cracks

Cultural Intelligence

Look at the amount of supply interruption from 1 crack in 1 bridge across the Mississippi.

As I have pointed out in the Gray Swans, if/when the New Madrid earthquake goes off it is estimated the majority if not all bridges will be damaged and unusable. The earthquake is overdue.

Who’s Who in Cultural Intelligence: Amma (Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)

Alpha A-D, Cultural Intelligence

Mātā Amritānandamayī Devī (born Sudhamani Idamannel; 27 September 1953), better known simply as Amma (“Mother”), is an Indian Hindu spiritual leader, guru and humanitarian, who is revered as a hugging saint by her followers.

Amṛtānandamayī’s form of giving darshana is hugging people.

In the book The Timeless Path, Swami Ramakrishnananda Puri, one of Amṛtānandamayī’s senior disciples, wrote: “The [spiritual] path inculcated by Amma is the same as the one presented in the Vedas and recapitulated in subsequent traditional scriptures such as the Bhagavad Gita.”

Amṛtānandamayī herself says, “karma [action], jñana [knowledge] and bhakti [devotion] are all essential. If the two wings of a bird are devotion and action, knowledge is its tail. Only with the help of all three can the bird soar into the heights.”
