This is Amazing...It is no wonder there are scriptural references to the eagle! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.
And, no there is no wonder the bald eagle has such a significant symbolism to our country. What hope…!
When it rains, most birds head for shelter; the eagle is the only bird that, in order to avoid the rain, starts flying above the clouds...
An amazing tidbit about the Eagle's eyesight: The eagle can probably identify a rabbit moving almost a mile away. That means that an eagle flying at an altitude of 1000 feet over open country could spot prey over an area of almost 3 square miles from a fixed position.
No wonder God wants us to spread our wings and soar with eagles.
God Bless all who share this.

A LUCKY few seem to be able to laugh in the face of death, surviving massive blood loss and injuries that would kill others. Now a drug has been found that might turn virtually any injured person into a "super-survivor", by preventing certain biological mechanisms from shutting down.
The drug has so far only been tested in animals. If it has a similar effect in humans, it could vastly improve survival from horrific injuries, particularly in soldiers, by allowing them to live long enough to make it to a hospital.
Loss of blood is the main problem with many battlefield injuries, and a blood transfusion the best treatment, although replacing lost fluid with saline can help. But both are difficult to transport in sufficient quantities. "You can't carry a blood bank into the battlefield," says Hasan Alam of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. "What we're looking for is a pill or a shot that would keep a person alive for long enough to get to them to a hospital."
We're looking for a pill that would keep a person alive for long enough to get them to hospital
When the body loses a lot of blood, it tries to compensate by going into shock. This is a set of emergency measures to raise blood pressure and conserve energy, such as increasing heart rate and shutting down expression of some proteins. However, if the body stays in shock for more than a short time, it can lead to organ failure, and death soon follows.
Recent studies have suggested that around 6 or 7 per cent of genes change their expression in response to shock, via the removal of "epigenetic", chemical additions to the genome called acetylations. As histone deacetylase (HDAC) inhibitors can prevent the removal of such acetylations, Alam wondered if these drugs might improve survival after blood loss.
His team previously showed that valproic acid, an HDAC inhibitor already used to treat epilepsy, increased survival rates in rats that had lost a lot of blood. It seemed to be doing this by preventing acetylation, causing certain "survival pathways" to remain switched on.
Now Alam has repeated the study in pigs. He anaesthetised the animals, drained 60 per cent of their blood, and subjected them to other injuries before giving them a saline transfusion. He then injected some of the pigs with valproic acid, gave others a blood transfusion and left the remainder untreated.
Just 25 per cent of the pigs receiving only saline survived for 4 hours - the typical time it takes to get hospital treatment - while 86 per cent of those injected with valproic acid survived. All those that had a blood transfusion lived (Surgery, DOI: 10.1016/j.surg.2009.04.007).
Alam is currently repeating the trial to make sure valproic acid does not hinder survival in the longer term. If so, he will apply for permission to do human trials by the end of the year.
"It's exciting," says John Holcomb of the Center for Translational Injury Research at the University of Texas in Houston. "They're looking at resuscitation in a different way."
Earlier studies by Alam's team showed that rats that naturally survive traumatic blood loss also experience fewer changes in gene expression than those that die or suffer complications. He thinks the same might be true in humans. "Every person has this capacity to survive a huge insult, but most of the time it's dormant," he says. "That's why the same insult kills some people while others laugh and move on. What we're trying to do is make you super-resistant using the pathways and proteins that already exist."
However, Graham Packham of Southampton General Hospital, UK, who is investigating the use of HDAC inhibitors to treat cancer, says it isn't yet clear how valproic acid, which reacts with a wide range of molecules, is actually prolonging survival. "It's not clear whether this is driven by valproic acid's epigenetic activity," he says.

12 Crazy Futuristic Water Buildings That May Help Humans Survive Climate Change Catastrophe | | AlteThis is just too cool. You have got to see these.
According to a fascinating report printed in the London Telegraph in 1880, a man was buried ‘in a condition of apparent death’ for 40 days and survived. No tricks or tomfoolery were involved, so how did he do it?
It’s often the case that when someone professes to be able do something remarkable, that great gift of human nature kicks in – skepticism. So when Maharajah Ranjeet Singh heard from an Indian fakir who claimed he could come back to life after being buried for several months in an apparent state of death, the Maharajah could only reply with one statement – proof or it didn’t happen.According to a fascinating report printed in the London Telegraph in 1880, a man was... more

Chinese authorities on Tuesday ordered the evacuation of 80,000 people as troops scrambled to hold back a dangerously swelling lake formed by this month's devastating earthquake.
As the death toll from the May 12 quake jumped to 67,000, state press said that emergency workers aimed to move the residents from their homes near the so-called "quake lake" by midnight (1600 GMT) on Tuesday.
Around 70,000 people were evacuated earlier from Beichuan County as concern rose that the lake - formed when the quake triggered landslides that blocked the Jian river - could overflow and surge downstream.
Heightening the sense of fear still stalking China's southwestern Sichuan province, a strong aftershock measuring 5.4 on the Richter scale rattled the area and was felt in the provincial capital Chengdu.
About 30 minutes later another aftershock measuring 5.7 shook neighbouring Shaanxi province, China's state news agency Xinhua reported.
Xinhua later said 420,000 houses had collapsed in Sichuan's Qingchuan County as a result of the aftershocks and 63 people there had been injured, six critically.
He Yongnian, former deputy director of the China Seismological Bureau, was quoted by Xinhua news agency as saying that aftershocks could "last for two or three months," complicating already difficult quake relief efforts.
Authorities have had to cope with thousands of aftershocks and a myriad of other dangers while trying to provide food, shelter and medical help for the millions left homeless across an area the size of South Korea.
In Beijing, cabinet spokesman Guo Weimin said the confirmed death toll stood at 67,183, with a further 20,790 missing.
One of the most urgent tasks now is trying to prevent the lake - one of 35 said to be at risk - spilling over and swamping an area that is home to some 1.3 million people.
Troops armed with dynamite are trying to blast channels through the debris blocking the river to reduce the level of the lake, thought to be holding some 130 million cubic metres of water.
Liu Ning, the water resources ministry's chief engineer who is supervising the operation, said people were being moved for their own safety.
"It's better for them to complain about the trouble that the evacuation would bring than to shed tears after the possible danger," he said.
The lake is inaccessible by road and the teams of soldiers, engineers and police had to hike through remote and mountainous terrain.
Li Huzhang, an engineer in the paramilitary People's Armed Police, said at least 50,000 cubic metres of debris would have to be removed but rescuers were aiming for 100,000 cubic metres to minimise the risk.
However, predictions of further rain threatened to make the operation more difficult and caused jitters among locals living in makeshift camps near their collapsed homes.
Wang Sumu, 42, said the tents were "hot like ovens" in direct sunlight and "when it rains, they will be even more unbearable."
The government said last week that just over 5.4 million people lost their homes. Many now live in tents or hastily erected units in temporary camps, but an untold number are still living without any shelter at all.
Another concern is the possible spread of disease in the disaster zone. A health ministry spokesman said Tuesday that mass emergency vaccinations would be carried out, but reported no major outbreaks thus far.Chinese authorities on Tuesday ordered the evacuation of 80,000 people as troops... more
The earthquake in Sichuan has left more than 4,000 children orphaned, according to officials.
Chen Kefu, the deputy director for civil affairs in Sichuan province, warned that it will take time to determine the true number because so many people were still missing and displaced.
The May 12 quake has killed more than 41,000 people and left more than five million homeless.
Thousands of Chinese people have called government offices and posted pleas online volunteering to adopt an orphan.
The earthquake also robbed many parents of their children, many of whom were killed when their schools collapsed.
Adoptions will not take place until order is restored in the earthquake-affected area. Local governments will take care of the orphans until then.
“We’ve received many inquiries about adoptions, but at present it’s simply too early since we’re still in the rescue and recovery stage,” said Wang Jun of the Chinese Foundation for Poverty Alleviation, who is handling orphan issues in the city of Deyang on the edge of the quake zone.
Officials are first scrambling to reunite children with family members and newspapers are running children’s photos and names, asking the public for help.

A U.S. military airplane with relief supplies was scheduled to land in Myanmar Monday on a mission that American officials say they hope will "build trust."
The United States said it received permission to land the Lockheed C-130 Hercules at 2 p.m. local time (0730 GMT), and hopes to send in two more planes on Tuesday.
The supplies that the C-130 is carrying -- wood, buckets, nails, blankets and plastic tarps, among items to help with shelter needs -- will be handed to the military junta that rules Myanmar.
But commanding officers hope the mission will help forge a relationship that will allow the United States to send in disaster experts.
The United Nations estimates the death toll from last weekend's Cyclone Nargis ranges from 63,000 to 100,000, well above the Myanmar government's estimate of about 22,000. Tens of thousands of people are missing.
