Orange County Register, Feb 25, 2015 (emphasis added): Tiny crabs still coming in waves off Balboa Island — Thousands… created a rim of red along the shoreline, scattered on the sand along the sleepy seaside of Balboa Island in Newport Beach… Experts say the crabs – which are about 1-to 3-inches long – haven’t been seen in the area for decades… The pelagic crabs are the latest in a year of odd sightings… glow-in-the-dark organisms called pyrosomes washed ashore in September, and before that a blue, jellyfish-like creatures…

CBS L.A., Feb 22, 2015: [E]xperts say the crab hadn’t been seen this far north in decades… Passers-by stopped to marvel at the unusual sight… Daniel Stringer, who’s lived on Balboa Island for 47 years, says he’s never seen the little crabs…

Newport Beach Independent, Feb 26, 2015: Thousands of tiny crabs that look like mini lobsters washed up on the shores of Balboa Island this week, covering the sand with a sea of red… They appeared on Balboa Island several weeks ago and then disappeared, but have reappeared. Most appear to have washed ashore dead, but many are still swimming in… crews have been scooping up [remains].

LA Times, Jan 22, 2015: [T]housands of candy-red crabs rarely seen in coastal Southern California have washed ashore in Newport Beach… this marks the first time in years that [Southern California Marine Institute director Daniel Pondella] has heard of them being seen in Southern California. “This is the first warm year we’ve had in quite awhile,” he said. “It could just be a sign of the warm water we’re currently experiencing.”… “I’ve never seen these things before,” [Newport Beach resident Darren Zinter] said. “It’s incredible.”

More on the pyrosomes:

Corona Del Mar Today: Pyrosomes Wash onto Big Corona Beach… something not been seen before in Corona del Mar, a city expert said. “Pyrosoma is a glow in the dark pelagic tunicate,” said Michelle Clemente, a Newport Beach marine education supervisor, in an email. “Although it is not uncommon to our waters…no one around here has ever seen it!”
OC Register: The ocean oddities arrived all summer. The glow-in-the-dark organisms called pyrosomes washed ashore… jellyfish-like creatures [were] a bit earlier… “These are strange times,” said Chris Lowe, a professor and head of the Shark Lab at Cal State Long Beach… “It’s tricky,” Lowe said. “The animals are acting as if we’re going to have an El Niño, but the ocean’s conditions aren’t conclusive.”

Obama is Getting Exactly What He Wants, Why Can Everyone Continue the Hate? STOP THE HATE!


“Ready for your white tears #BlackBrunchATL”

Black Brunch Atlanta protest leader “Ellevation_”, a self-proclaimed “QueerActivistBae”, espouses anti-white racism.

“Once the names and ages were listed, whiteness was so uncomfy. Oops. #BlackBrunchATL”

Black Brunch protesters invaded several Decatur, Georgia restaurants on Sunday. Protesters report two establishments called police, with managers from Sweet Melissa’s trying unsuccessfully to throw them out.

“Sweet Melissa’s staff attempts to get out #BlackBrunchATL, calls cops. @Ellevation_ like: “don’t touch me!””

Some customers at Sweet Melissa’s reportedly pushed and talked back against the protesters.

“#BlackBrunchATL received a number of threats/shoves at Sweet Melissa’s. “Our breakfast matters” erupted from a table.”

One white man sitting at a table with Black friends was filmed vocally objecting to the protest, repeatedly saying, “You’re stirring up conflict”, and at one point telling the protesters to “go home”.

“You’re stirring up conflict!” #BlackBrunchATL”

The anti-white racism of the protest was amplified by comments made online.

“White liberals don’t like to be reminded of their privilege. RT @jccfergie: White people be like…#BlackBrunchATL”

“#BlackBrunchATL was a success. Interrupting white spaces to raise white consciousness and expose internalized racism.”

On Monday AlertsUSA subscribers were notified via SMS messages to their mobile devices regarding new statements coming from ISIS threatening to attack the White House, Big Ben at the Palace of Westminster in London as well as the Eiffel Tower in Paris. http://washington.cbslocal.com/2015/03/16/isis-vows-to-blow-up-the-white-house-big-ben-and-the-eiffel-tower/

In a new 28-minute Arabic-language audio message posted to the Internet, ISIS spokesman Abu Muhammad al-Adnani warned Jews and Christians that they could either “convert to Islam or pay the ultimate price when your armies are expelled from Muhammad’s peninsula, from Jerusalem, and all Muslim lands.” He went on to say “if Jews and Christians continued on their current path, they would soon regret having done so and be incapable of preventing the surge to the caliphate.” http://news.nationalpost.com/tag/abu-muhammad-al-adnani/

“We want Kabul, Karachi, Riyadh, Tehran, Baghdad, Damascus, Jerusalem, and Cairo, Sana’a, Doha, Abu Dhabi, and Amman. The Muslims will return to power, to be the vanguard and lead in every place.”

ISIS ATTACKS IN TUNISIA, US EMBASSY WARNS

On Wedensday AlertsUSA subscribers were notified of a warning message from the U.S. Embassy in Tunis, Tunisia advising American citizens traveling to or in Tunisia to exercise extreme caution following a terror attack on the popular Bardo Museum in the capital. Late this week, the Islamic State formally claimed responsibility for the attack.
http://tunisia.usembassy.gov/sm-3182015.html

20 foreign tourists, mostly Europeans, were killed in the attack. While this is the worst terror attack in the country since a 2002 suicide bombing in the city of Djerba, it is important to note that Tunisians make up a significant contingent of the foreign fighters currently operating in Syria, Iraq and Libya.
http://abcnews.go.com/International/tunisia-attack-dead-shooting-museum/story?id=29721565
http://www.ibtimes.com/isis-claims-responsibility-tunisia-bardo-museum-terrorist-attack-audio-recording-1852616

According to an Islamic State spokesman in an audio recording posted the Internet,: “We tell the apostates who sit on the chest of Muslim Tunisia: Wait for the glad tidings of what will harm you, o impure ones, for what you have seen today is the first drop of the rain.”
http://www.nationalreview.com/article/415706/terror-tunisia-tom-rogan

The U.S. Embassy in Tunis is reminding U.S. citizens of the importance of increased vigilance and the need for caution while in the country, and in particular, while visiting public venues frequented by large numbers of foreigners, such as hotels, shopping centers, and tourist sites and restaurants.

IRAN AND HEZBOLLAH REMOVED FROM LIST
OF STATE SPONSORS OF TERROR

In a stunning move which has many in the U.S. military and intelligence communities shaking their heads, it was revealed this week that the Obama Administration has removed Iran and Hezbollah from the list of state sponsors of terrorism. This, despite their being responsible for the killing of hundreds of U.S. Marines, giving sanctuary to numerous members of al Qaeda and providing arms, financing, training, and other means of facilitating terror-related activities to numerous groups,
http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/Iran-Hezbollah-off-terror-list/2015/03/17/id/630778/

Why would he do this? One glaring reason is optics. It would look pretty bad for President Obama to ink a nuclear deal which ultimately allows Iran a pathway to developing nuclear weapons if they were still listed as a state sponsor of terrorism. Being on the list also means a host of economic and trade sanctions.So there is potential that such a designation was tabled as a chip in negotiations.

We remind readers that Iran was behind Hezbollah’s bombing of the U.S. Marine barracks in Lebanon in 1983 which killed 241, the 1985 hijacking of TWA flight 847 from Cairo to San Diego during which U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem was murdered, and the 1988 capture, brutal torture and hanging of U.S. Marine Colonel William R. Higgins. Then we have the estimated 1,000+ U.S. soldiers killed in Iraq by Iranian proxies. In 2007 during hearings before congress, then Army General David Patraeus testified that Iranian Republican Guard Quds Forces had been provided training, equipment, arms, and funding to terrorists in Iraq. Then there is the ongoing influx of funding, weapons, and training provided by Iran to Syrian government forces and Iran’s backing of the Houti rebels who brought down the government in Yemen just weeks ago. And this week in an article appearing in the Washington Post, David Patraeus argues that the foremost threat to Iraq’s long-term stability and the broader regional equilibrium is not the Islamic State; but rather, the Iranian back Shiite militias. And finally, to this very day, Iran continues to declare they ultimately seek to destroy the nation of Israel and the Jewish people.

In the end, the removal of Iran and Hezbollah from the list of State Sponsors of Terrorism is a stunning development which will have dramatic global and regional implications for for U.S. citizens and interests and that of our allies.

Russia Launches Massive Military Drills w/ 80KTroops,
Deploys Nuclear Capable Missiles and Bombers

On March 20, 2015, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:
3/20 – Moscow issues harsh warning to the U.S. over planned convoy of 120 Army Stryker vehicles expected to move through Baltic States along Russian border. Monitoring..

What You Need To Know
As AlertsUSA has been reporting for a number of weeks (see this, this, this and this), the buildup of U.S. and NATO forces in Eastern Europe continues, as do similar efforts on the part of Russia. This week, Russia launched massive military exercises spanning all nine time zones, including the Volga region, Urals, Western Siberia, the Far East region and the Pacific, the North Caucasus and along the borders of NATO member states from the Arctic through to the Baltic and Black Seas. The unannounced drills began on Monday under orders from Vladimir Putin and initially involved 40,000 troops, 3,000 vehicles, dozens of warships and 110 aircraft.
http://rt.com/news/241745-russia-offensive-defense-drills/

On Thursday Russia's Chief of the General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, said that the number of troops taking part in the exercises has gone up to 80,000, and the number of aircraft participating in the exercises had increased to 220. This also includes the deployment of Tu-22M3 nuclear-capable bombers to Crimea and "Iskander" missile systems to Kaliningrad.
http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/international/europe/2015/03/19/russia-expands-military-exercises-troops/25023979/

Late this week the U.S. Army began deployment of Patriot air defense units to Poland for exercises. Currently, the United States Army has three different sets of troops in Poland for training exercises, as part of “Operation Atlantic Resolve.” American troops have been training continuously in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia to demonstrate the U.S. commitment to NATO and Article 5 (collective defense) responsibilities.http://www.army.mil/article/144818/Army_Europe_air_defense_unit_deploys_to_Poland_for_exercise/

A very dangerous situation is unfolding in Eastern Europe with more than 200,000 military personnel, hundreds of aircraft and literally every other modern implement of war involved in complex, agressive military training exercises on land, sea and in the air. Both sides are feeling pressured. Both sides are feeling threatened. The potential for misinterpreting actions or accidents is high.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor developments in this region 24/7 and will immediately notify service subscribers of announcements of additional significant force deployments or any other changes in the overall threat environment, as events warrant.

A patient has tested positive for Ebola in Liberia’s capital

RSOE EDIS ALERTMAIL
2015-03-21 03:41:51 – Biological Hazard – Liberia

EDIS Code: BH-20150321-47426-LBR
Date&Time: 2015-03-21 03:41:51 [UTC]
Continent: Africa
Country: Liberia
State/Prov.: Capital City,
Location: ,
City: Monrovia

Description:
A patient has tested positive for Ebola in Liberia’s capital, officials said Friday, deflating hopes that the West African nation had beaten the disease after weeks with no new cases. Liberia has seen the most deaths in the West African Ebola outbreak, which has killed more than 10,000 people. But since it discharged its last case on March 5, it was counting down to being declared Ebola-free. Countries must wait 42 days from when the last patient tests negative before an outbreak is declared over. Now, a new patient has tested positive, said Dr. Francis Kateh, the acting head of the country’s Ebola Incident Management Team. A second test is generally done to confirm the diagnosis. Tolbert Nyenswah, who runs Liberia’s Ebola response, also said he had been told the test result was positive. The woman went to the emergency room of Monrovia’s Redemption Hospital on Thursday night, according to Elizabeth Hamann of the International Rescue Committee, which is helping the hospital safely reopen amid the outbreak. She was identified as a suspected Ebola case and transferred to the hospital’s transit unit, where she could be isolated while awaiting test results. She is now at a treatment center. In a worrying sign, it is not clear where the woman became infected. She doesn’t seem to be linked to any of the people on an Ebola contacts list, Kateh said. “We have to investigate where the person came from,” he said. “Did they travel out of the country?” An emergency meeting will be held Saturday to discuss the case. Although hopes were high that Liberia had beaten Ebola, officials knew that until two neighboring countries – Sierra Leone and Guinea – also beat the disease, Liberia would remain at risk.

ENENews: Mysterious affliction in Alaska polar bears


Mysterious affliction in Alaska polar bears with baldness and crusty skin lesions; Syndrome spiked after Fukushima, nearly 1,000% average rate — Gov’t: Ongoing reports of unusual number of ‘hairless seals’ with sores — “Seals continue to be reported with hair loss… it makes us nervous” (PHOTO)

Polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea area are suffering hair loss due to a condition called alopecia syndrome. This adult bear was biopsied on sea ice north of Barrow in 2012.
Elizabeth Peacock / USGS

Alaska Dispatch News, Dec 11, 2014 (emphasis added): Scientists seek cause of patchy baldness in some Beaufort Sea polar bears — Polar bears in the southern Beaufort Sea area are suffering hair loss due to a condition called alopecia syndrome… but the precise cause of that stress is yet to be determined, according to a new study published online in the Journal of Wildlife Diseases… Over the study period, 3.45 percent of the bears examined had alopecia syndrome — patchy loss of guard and underlying hairs around the head, neck and shoulders, accompanied by crusty lesions on the exposed skin. The incidences peaked in 2012, when 28 percent of the examined polar bears had the problem. That was at about the same time a mysterious affliction, with patchy fur loss and bleeding skin lesions, sickened hundreds of Arctic Alaska seals, killing many of them. The affliction was seen among some walruses… There were some years when none of the captured polar bears had alopecia syndrome, and some years, like 2012, with relatively high rates… “They might be more energetically stressed, and then they encounter some other stressors,” [USGS biologist Todd Atwood] said… Further analysis of the Beaufort bears’ alopecia problems is planned…

Journal of Wildlife Diseases, scientists from USGS and Alaska Department of Fish & Game, Jan 2015: Alopecia (hair loss) has been observed in several marine mammal species… From 1998 to 2012, we observed an alopecia syndrome in polar bears from the southern Beaufort Sea of Alaska that presented as bilaterally asymmetrical loss of guard hairs and thinning of the undercoat around the head, neck, and shoulders, which, in severe cases, was accompanied by exudation and crusted skin lesions. Alopecia was observed in 49 (3.45%) of the bears sampled during 1,421 captures [peaking in] 2012 (28%)… The cause of the syndrome remains unknown and future work should focus on identifying the causative agent and potential effects on population vital rates.

Seal with hair loss – Shishmaref, AK, Nov 18, 2014: A [bearded seal] had fur missing from its back, flippers and stomach… There has been a disease of some kind that killed many ice seals and bearded seals in the region… when we see this it makes us nervous… seals continue to be reported with hair loss.

NOAA (pdf), 2014: The [Unusual Mortality Event] investigation will remain open and active for… ringed seals, ribbon seals, bearded seals and spotted seals… reports from the Bering Strait region continue regarding an unusual number… with patchy to generalized hair loss and/or… sores. Some of these “hairless seals” may represent survivors of the 2011 mortality event… the exact cause of this disease is not currently known… we cannot give specific recommendations on the safety of these animals for food or contact with people.
