Author and economic analyst John Sneisen breaks down the activities of the Exchange Stabilization Fund (The ESF) which manipulates markets and pulls strings throughout the globe, largely in the United States. As John puts it, they're more involved in money trafficking than the CIA. This is a group few actually know about, but their importance in global monetary policy cannot be understated. An incredibly nefarious entity rigging gold and silver prices while working with the top globalists in the world to manipulate the monetary system through the Federal Reserve and major banks, the Exchange Stabilization Fund has never been broken down the way John has laid out their goals. Never before has anyone dissected their structure to this extent and those who've tried have been attacked relentlessly. This is the video the ESF doesn't want you to see. Take out your pen and paper! Take notes! This may seem mind numbing, but it's filled with about 42 minutes of information you won't want to miss!

The ESF-8 partners that deal with Fatality Management are often misunderstood. The agencies and organizations have to be nimble as their scope varies with the size and type of incident. A community's Medical Examiner or Coroner has complete jurisdiction over the deceased and are responsible for many vital tasks such as: Recovery efforts, Setting up temporary morgues, Identifying victims, and collecting postmortem data. These Partners are also tasked with notifying families and assisting those families with final arrangements. The Kansas Funeral Directors Association Disaster Team is available in our region when the medical examiner's office resources are taxed. This team is made up of Funeral Directors from all over the State that volunteer to assist in the vital mission of managing fatalities. When local, regional, & state resources are stretched thin, the Disaster Mortuary Operational Response Team (DMORT) is a federal resource that can be called in.

This webinar, led by LANDFIRE Business Lead Henry Bastian, will cover more than a decade old program (LANDFIRE) at producing and updating land cover data products across all 50 United States and insular areas. Although many have thought of LANDFIRE as only a wildland fire data set, the rich array of data layers and databases (vegetation type, cover, and height; successional state and transition models and database; to national plot and polygon databases) have fundamentally improved information integration and decision support for managers, scientists, and leadership across fire, habitat, and natural resources management. This presentation will explore the past comprehensive suite of data that leads to the future in advancing data integration, partnerships in authoritative data sources, and improving mapping change with engagement and user feedback as a key tenant. Consistent wall to wall data provides a strong foundation for the future national remap project with the goal of improved data quality. Federal, State, Tribal, Researcher, Academics, and local managers are provided with a consistent data framework that can be used across multiple levels and efforts. Henry Bastian is a natural resources manager in the DOI Office of Wildland Fire Boise, ID. for enterprise systems and data (NFPORS, IFTDSS, LANDFIRE). Prior to this he worked in Washington, DC on the implementation of LANDFIRE; wildland fire performance measures and reporting through the DOI Strategic Plan; budget; chair of the Woody Biomass Utilization Group, & Emergency Management coordinator - Emergency Support Functions (ESF) and National Response Framework (NRF).

What is EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND? What does EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND mean? EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND meaning - EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND definition - EXCHANGE STABILIZATION FUND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. The Exchange Stabilization Fund (ESF) is an emergency reserve fund of the United States Treasury Department, normally used for foreign exchange intervention. This arrangement (as opposed to having the central bank intervene directly) allows the US government to influence currency exchange rates without affecting domestic money supply. As of October 2009, the fund held assets worth $105 billion, including $58.1 billion in special drawing rights (SDR) from the International Monetary Fund. The U.S. Exchange Stabilization Fund was established at the Treasury Department by a provision in the Gold Reserve Act of January 31, 1934. 31 U.S.C. § 5117. It was intended as a response to Britain's Exchange Equalisation Account. The fund began operations in April 1934, financed by $2 billion of the $2.8 billion paper profit the government realized from raising the price of gold to $35 an ounce from $20.67. The act authorized the ESF to use its capital to deal in gold and foreign exchange to stabilize the exchange value of the dollar. The ESF as originally designed was part of the executive branch not subject to legislative oversight. The Gold Reserve Act authorized the ESF to use such assets as were not needed for exchange market stabilization to deal in government securities. The Fund had no statutory authority, however, to engage in other activities that it began to undertake. The principal such extraneous activity it devoted itself to was lending dollars to politically favored governments. In 1938–40, the director of the Division of Monetary Research, Harry Dexter White, worked on a proposal for loans to Latin America and participated in plans for an Inter-American Bank, which did not materialize. The plan for an Inter-American Bank, however, inspired White's first draft of the subsequent plans for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank that White prepared in 1941 at Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Henry Morgenthau's direction. It was funded by Franklin D. Roosevelt under the Emergency Banking Act of 1933, with Archie Lochhead serving as its first Director. The Special Drawing Rights Act of 1968, 22 U.S.C. § 286o, likewise provided that any special drawing rights (SDRs) allocated by the International Monetary Fund or otherwise acquired by the United States are resources of the ESF. In accordance with the Act, SDRs can be "monetized" (i.e., converted into dollars) by having the Secretary of the Treasury issue Special Drawing Rights Certificates (SDRCs) to the Federal Reserve System. The amount of SDRCs are limited to the dollar value of the ESF's SDR holdings. The dollar proceeds of such monetizations are assets of the ESF, and the SDRCs are a counterpart liability of the ESF. Treasury has a written understanding with the Fed that the SDRCs will be redeemed when ESF dollar holdings appear to be in excess of foreseeable requirements. Treasury does not pay interest on SDRCs. A change in the law, in 1970, allows the Secretary of the Treasury, with the approval of the President, to use money in the ESF to "deal in gold, foreign exchange, and other instruments of credit and securities." The U.S. government used the fund to provide $20 billion in currency swaps and loan guarantees to Mexico following the 1994 economic crisis in Mexico. This was somewhat controversial at the time, because President Clinton had tried and failed to pass the Mexican Stabilization Act through Congress. Use of the ESF circumvented the need for approval of the legislative branch. In response, Congress passed and President Clinton signed the Mexican Debt Disclosure Act of 1995, which implicitly accepted the use of the ESF, but required reports to Congress every six months on the status of the loans. At the end of the crisis, the U.S. made a $500 million profit on the loans. On September 19, 2008, U.S. Treasury Department announced that up to $50 billion in the ESF would temporarily be made available to guarantee deposits in certain money market funds.

Disaster Recovery Services Project Manager Paul Dean explains the Stafford Act in about 90 seconds. www.dewberry.com Hi, I’m Paul Dean, project manager for Dewberry’s disaster recovery services. Today I want to introduce you to the Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act, otherwise known as the Stafford Act. The Stafford Act creates the legislative framework for the federal government to support individuals and communities in four key areas: preparedness, mitigation, response, and recovery. The support can be provided to state, local, and tribal governments, individuals, or other eligible entities and it generally consists of financial and physical assistance provided by FEMA. The Stafford Act authorizes federal funding for preparedness which can include planning, training, and exercising which allows emergency management stakeholders to define, assign, and train all emergency roles, responsibilities, policies, and procedures necessary to respond and recover from events. The second area is mitigation. Mitigation consists of activities that help reduce or eliminate the impacts of hazards during and after a disaster. The third area is response. This involves emergency protective measures which are actions taken before, during, and after an event to save lives, protect public health and safety, and prevent damage to improve public property. And the fourth area is recovery. Recovery is all about helping individuals and communities get back on their feet. Recovery support can include providing mobile housing units for people whose homes have been destroyed or providing lost income for someone who can no longer work due to the disaster The Stafford Act also authorizes support to communities. This generally consists of funding repair or replacement of public infrastructure such as bridges and hospitals.

Migrating birds consume and distribute an abundance of seeds and invertebrates, are a cultural resource for waterfowl watchers and hunters, and provide economic benefit through the activities of waterfowl enthusiasts. Researchers at the NE CSC developed weather severity indices (WSIs) to estimate autumn-winter distributions of migratory birds based on contemporary weather conditions to describe historic changes to weather known to influence their migration, and forecast their future spatial distributions based on dynamically downscaled climate change scenarios. WSI models indicate that shifts in the timing of waterfowl migration could have substantial ecological, cultural, and economic consequences, and may necessitate changes to North American-wide conservation efforts for waterfowl during the non-breeding period. The researchers also looked into the potential impacts of changing weather severity on waterfowl migration with the goal achieving actionable science to guide the decisions of resource managers. They projected changes in the relative abundance and timing of autumn-winter migration for seven dabbling duck species across the Mississippi and Atlantic Flyways for the mid- and late 21st century. Projected changes in air temperature, snowpack, and lake ice cover may lead to delayed autumn-winter migration for the species evaluated. Implications of these changes in migratory behavior on food resources, wetland restoration, hunting, and birdwatching were explored.

GES COLLOQUIUM: Transgenic American chestnuts for potential forest restoration: scientific successes, regulatory challenges Andy Newhouse, PhD Student at the SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry See announcement: https://mailchi.mp/a05735a4c0ee/gescolloquium4242018 April 24, 2018, 12 PM Learn more at GES Colloquium Information: https://research.ncsu.edu/ges/events/colloquiums/#Newhouse Abstract: The American chestnut was once an integral part of eastern US deciduous forests, with many environmental, economic, and social values. This ended with the introduction of an invasive fungal pathogen causing chestnut blight, which wiped out over three billion trees across their native range. Transgenic American chestnuts expressing a wheat gene for oxalate oxidase (OxO) successfully tolerate blight infections. The OxO enzyme breaks down oxalic acid, a toxin produced by the blight fungus, but it does not harm the fungus itself. Restoring American chestnuts to their native environments could benefit people and ecosystems, but transgenic forest trees have not been previously released or extensively studied in the US. Environmental interactions, federal regulatory review processes, public responses, and other considerations are largely unique for forest trees compared to the agricultural systems where genetically engineered plants have been deployed to date. In particular, regulations heretofore employed to govern plant-incorporated pesticides in annual crops present unique challenges, since this transgene product is not specifically pesticidal and the long-lived trees would be intended to outcross with wild relatives. This presentation will include natural history of chestnuts, scientific progress in creating and testing a blight-tolerant American chestnut tree, regulatory progress to date, and considerations for responsibly using genetic engineering to address environmental problems.

The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 (Division A of Pub.L. 110--343, 122 Stat. 3765, enacted October 3, 2008), commonly referred to as a bailout of the U.S. financial system, is a law enacted in response to the subprime mortgage crisis authorizing the United States Secretary of the Treasury to spend up to $700 billion to purchase distressed assets, especially mortgage-backed securities, and supply cash directly to banks. The funds for purchase of distressed assets were mostly redirected to inject capital into banks and other financial institutions while the Treasury continued to examine the usefulness of targeted asset purchases. Both foreign and domestic banks are included in the program. The Federal Reserve also extended help to American Express, whose bank-holding application it recently approved. The Act was proposed by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson during the global financial crisis of 2008. Investor Warren Buffett says he could put in $10B plus $90B nonrecourse debt; that is, without having to repay beyond $10B if mortgages did not repay. (This is 10 to 1 leverage, 10 times upside with 1 times downside.) He also said that the government should pay market price, which may be below the carry value. Buffett says "I would think they might insist on the directors of the institutions that participate in this program waiving all director's fees for a couple of years. They should, maybe, eliminate bonuses." Buffett says "...if someone wants to sell a hundred billion of these instruments to the Treasury, let them sell two or three billion in the market and then have the Treasury match that, ... . You don't want the Treasury to be a patsy." Mr. Buffett's company owns financial companies which will benefit directly or indirectly, including his investment in Goldman Sachs. Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, endorsed Paulson's plan on September 19. Investor George Soros is opposed to the original Paulson plan -- "Mr Paulson's proposal to purchase distressed mortgage-related securities poses a classic problem of asymmetric information. The securities are hard to value but the sellers know more about them than the buyer: in any auction process the Treasury would end up with the dregs. The proposal is also rife with latent conflict of interest issues. Unless the Treasury overpays for the securities, the scheme would not bring relief." -- but calls Barack Obama's list of conditions for the plan "the right principles". Investor Carl Icahn described the bailout as "crazy and inflationary hell". Investor Jim Rogers called the plan "astonishing, devastating, and very harmful for America". Tim McCormack (Chief Investment Officer, Alpha Titans, Santa Barbara, CA) has diagnosed the underlying problem as a failure of regulatory oversight, which allowed firms to overly leverage mortgage-backed assets. He criticizes the Paulson Plan as a giveaway. He has also written that fears of the domino effect, rather than illiquidity, are the cause of the credit freeze. William Seidman was critical of rescuing the banks' managements and their shareholders, comparing the bailout with action he and his team at the Resolution Trust Corporation took during the S&L crisis of the 1980s: "What we did, we took over the bank, nationalized it, fired the management, took out the bad assets and put a good bank back in the system." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_Economic_Stabilization_Act_of_2008

Hello everybody and welcome back to the Everything Ham Radio Podcast! This is Episode #9, we have past the infamous 7th episode that is the normal stumbling step for podcast and we are one away from double digits! Over the past 8 episodes, we have been talking about all things digital, but this week are going to change gears and start a short series about emergency communications. In part one of this series, this episode, we will be talking about Emergency Training, in part two, Emergency Preparedness and in the last episode in this series we will be talking about Go-packs. Training is probably the most important part about emergency communications. Many years ago, I had heard that when a disaster happens, everything goes out the window. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Things appear to be extremely chaotic at the beginning of a disaster, and in some instances it is, especially if the people that are on the scene at first, decide not to use the NIMS system from the get go. Being a dispatcher now for nearly twelve years, I have seen incidents that are pure chaos and I have seen incidents that are very structured and run smoothly. Those that actually worked right, especially from the beginning, were those incidents that were started with the correct command structure in place and everybody knew or was told what they needed to do. Training is the key to having a well organized incident. Now I know that us, as amateur radio operators, will probably never been in command of an incident, but you still should know how one works. Several years ago, after 9/11, the whole emergency response system has had a complete overhaul. Before 9/11, first responders were encouraged to have formal training on command but it was not a required training unless it was at the local level. Since 9/11 and the conception of Homeland Security, a new system was put into place called the National Incident Management System or NIMS for short. This system was put into place by Homeland Security and is required training to anyone that is going to be assisting in a disaster area. For the First Responder level, which is what Amateur Radio Operators are classified as, there is two courses that you have to take. Links to both of these courses can be found below. The courses are free and you take them online. IS-100 http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS100b.asp IS-700.a NIMS: An Introduction http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is700a.asp These two courses are the two courses that you are required to take if you are going to be helping on an incident. There are some other courses that many agencies recommend that you take as well but are only required on the local level. However, if you are part of the command team for you county, the supervisor level of training that is required is the IS-200.b and the IS-800.b courses. Below are direct links to those and a couple others that some agencies require. I am also including a link to the main course directory in case you want to look and see if there is anything else that you might want to take. IS-200.b ICS for Single Resources and Initial Action Incidents http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS200b.asp IS-250 Emergency Support Function 15 (ESF 15) External Affairs http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is250.asp IS-288 The Role of Voluntary Agencies in Emergency Management http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/is288.asp IS-800.b National Response Framework, An Introduction http://training.fema.gov/EMIWeb/IS/IS800b.asp IS-317 Introduction to CERT http://www.citizencorps.gov/cert/IS317/index.htm Main Course List FEMA EMI Independent Study Program http://training.fema.gov/IS/ The ARRL also has an Emergency Communication Training course that is a good thing to take and has a lot of good information. Some agencies also require this course. Arrl emergency communications training http://www.arrl.org/online-course-catalog One thing that I have learned over my career as a dispatcher and to a certain extent my experience in emergency services with both amateur radio and as a volunteer firefighter, is that you can never have too much training. When crap hits the fan, your body will automatically fall into a mode that we have all heard of, Fight or Flight(now it is Fight, Flight or Freeze). As emergency responders we train so that we know what to do in the event that we are needed. If, for example, you are called upon to go to a shelter and set up a station there. If you have never really trained or practiced setting up a station on emergency power or in a temporary location, then you are going to be wasting valuable time trying to get your station setup. Now I’m not saying that if you practice and/or train on how to set up a temporary station somewhere then you won’t have issues setting it up, but the more you train to do things, the easier it is to problem solve and figure out how to get over those hurdles.

AUTOMATIC REACTOR SCRAM FROM 100% POWER DUE TO A TURBINE/GENERATOR TRIP "Actuation of RPS [Reactor Protection System] with reactor critical. The Reactor Scram occurred at 1805 [CST] 01/14/13 from 100% CTP [Core Thermal Power]. The cause of scram appears to be a Turbine Generator Trip. "05-S-01-EP-2 RPV Control, Reactor Scram ONEP [Off Normal Event Procedure] 05-1-02-I-1, and Turbine and Generator Trips ONEP 05-1-02-1-2 were entered to mitigate the transient with all systems responding as designed. No loss of offsite or ESF power occurred. No ECCS initiation signals were reached and no ECCS or Diesel Generator initiation occurred. "All control rods are fully inserted. MSIVs remained open and SRVs lifted and reseated as designed. Currently, reactor water level is being maintained by the Condensate and Feedwater system in the normal band and reactor pressure is being controlled via Main Turbine Bypass valves to the main condenser. There are no challenges to Primary or Secondary Containment at this time." The licensee notified the NRC Resident Inspector.
