Authorities Now ADMIT That Container Ship Grounded In The ‘Suez Canal’ Could Have Been ‘Human Error’ — After My Post.

This video shows the container ship swinging around like a drunk sailor BEFORE getting wedged.


They, i.e., the Canal authorities (all Egyptians), are now grudgingly admitting that it was NOT high winds. I knew that, & I am not that much of an expert!

They say it could have been ‘human error or technical malfunction’. OK? How come there wasn’t RADIO communications. A SOS!

Plus, these ships like commercial planes have VOICE RECORDERS on the bridge & ‘black boxes‘. What do they say.

This is MIGHTY suspicious.

IF this was a commercial plane, they would NOT have ruled out foul play for days. Hhhmmm.

I am going to be following this more closely. I will keep you posted. Stay tuned.

The Massive Container Ship Blocking The ‘Suez Canal’ — Was It REALLY An Accident?

by Anura Guruge




What IF it wasn’t an accident?

How come that question is NOT getting asked?

This blockage is causing financial mayhem around the globe — & we are JUST in the early stage. The impact will start growing by the day. They are already saying that the U.S. might face a temporary shortage of new cars. PRICES WILL GO UP.

Somebody is making MONEY from this. Of that there can be no doubt or debate.

I find it hard to believe that it was blown sideways by a 40mps wind — the wall of containers acting as giant sails. A massive ship like this will have awfully powerful engines, side-thrusters & a state-of-the-art AUTO-PILOT. Yes, the 25 crew were all Indian BUT there were two ‘qualified’ Suez Canal pilots on the bridge at the time.

I am JUST asking the question — because no one else has.

SMILE.

Narendra Modi, India’s Prime Minister, pushing aside Mark Zuckerberg, at Facebook headquarters, so that photographers would be able to better capture his grey bearded, ‘Pirate of the Arabian Sea’ visage, deservedly got a lot of media publicity.

Canon 7D — side view.

But this, by no means, is the only time that the media has caught Modi trying to be the most photogenic subject in the frame. Moreover he is reputed to be quite an avid photographer himself — and that is what intrigues me. I have found two pictures of him with a fairly expensive looking DSLR glued to his face. But I can’t make out the make of it. Yes, I Googled. The consensus is that he uses a ‘near Pro-level’ (albeit APS-C sensor size) Canon 7D (Mk I or Mk II) — though, of course, it is possible that a man of his stature probably could have multiple ‘high-end’ cameras. I am curious. It would be a hell of a marketing coup for any camera maker — having Modi, the leader of the World’s largest democracy being a fan and user. So, IF you know, please let us know.

So here are two pictures, from this GREAT ‘Huffington Post’ article, of Modi the photographer.

And another, from the same article — this time Modi, at a resort, taking some pictures, as he should.

And of ALL the pictures of Modi looking at the camera
ignoring ALL around him,

this, for multiple reasons, is MY favorite.

In case you didn’t see the video.
This is but one version. Google or YouTube for others.

IF you, like I, was perturbed that the Indians didn’t do anything — GOOD NEWS.

The leopard was tranquilized, by game wardens, the pot removed and it was permitted to go.

Why the Indians acted like a bunch of 5th grade school girls is another matter. They could have roped it and got that pot off. But at least it all ended well.

But 6 hours?

6 hours … for that poor, petrified leopard. I wouldn’t be surprised if it now turns into a maneater — though leopards rarely if ever do that.
