On the eve of the President of the United States, Barack Obama, receiving the Nobel Peace Prize in Oslo, Norway ... a remarkable, almost unbelievable appartition appeared over Norway's northern skies--
According to early news reports coming out of Norway, just hours ago ... a vast, rapidly expanding "spiral" suddenly appeared in the pre-dawn skies over its northern-most town, a fishing center called "Tromso" (above). Moments later, a corkscrewing "blue beam" seemed to emmanate from the exact center of the spiral toward the ground .... Then, as rapidly as this "glowing spiral" and central "beam" appeared ... the bright core of this rapidly rotating spiral abruptly disappeared ... to be immediately replaced by what could only be described as -- A pitch black, rapidly enlarging circle (below) -- looking eerily like "an expanding black hole ..."
OSLO — The announcement drew gasps of surprise and cries of too much, too soon. Yet President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday because the judges found his promise of disarmament and diplomacy too good to ignore.
OSLO — A lone political extremist bombed the government center here on Friday, killing 7 people, the police said, before heading to an island summer camp for young members of the governing Labor Party and killing at least 80 people.
Microsoft cofounder and philanthropist Bill Gates wants Norway to use its massive $800 billion oil fund to invest in the infrastructure of sub-Saharan Africa and Asia, bringing rails, roads, and power to developing regions.
According to Reuters, the Scandinavian nation's considerable oil income—which has become the world's biggest wealth fund—has been amassed through saving surplus oil revenues and spending only its returns. As a result, the country of 5.1 million people will see its funds exceed $1 trillion in this decade.
I'm not convinced. The majority of TPTB can now be found in China.
Although the activity in Norway could potentially be related to the 'Viking apocalypse horn' being blown?
Neutrality poses a threat to those who would prefer they were more easily corrupted. They have been getting rather greedy in the last few years, and that is not a good sign.

We have a bad ass storm going on here, other than that, business as usual.
very safe environment for the kids. Money can buy these things but they also have it in their culture.
The rule states that a maximum of 4% of the fund's value should be allocated to the yearly government budget. Disregarding the future petroleum income, the fund will still remain an important budgetary source of revenue. As of today, with the value of the pension fund increasing every year, the rule will secure even better conditions for today's and future generations. A broad majority of the political parties in Norway have agreed to comply with this fixed percentual usage. The rule was partially intended to avoid a state of "Dutch disease".
