Prophecy Sign:  The future New Economic World Order - System of the Antichrist

Call for 'new world order' so emerging markets can shine
The overarching theme at the 2015 Asian-African Conference in Indonesia this week was the need for “a new economic world order”. The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) were roundly criticised for failing to deliver solutions for the global economy to alleviate poverty, distribute wealth and close the inequality gap. At the opening of the conference in Jakarta, Indonesian President Joko Widodo said the World Bank and the IMF are reluctant to recognise that the world has changed. He said Asian and African countries need to build a new global economic order that is open to emerging economic powers. “The view that the world’s economic problems can only be solved by the World Bank and the IMF is an outdated view. I am of the view that the management of the global economy cannot be left only to these international financial institutions,” said Widodo.

Guess What Happened The Last Time Bond Yields Crashed Like This?
If a major financial crisis was approaching, we would expect to see the “smart money” getting out of stocks and pouring into government bonds that are traditionally considered to be “safe” during a crisis.  This is called a “flight to safety” or a “flight to quality“.  In the past, when there has been a “flight to quality” we have seen yields for German government bonds and U.S. government bonds go way down.  As you will see below, this is exactly what we witnessed during the financial crisis of 2008.  U.S. and German bond yields plummeted as money from the stock market was dumped into bonds at a staggering pace.  Well, it is starting to happen again.  In recent months we have seen U.S. and German bond yields begin to plummet as the “smart money” moves out of the stock market.  So is this another sign that we are on the precipice of a significant financial panic?

Israel will strike Iran first to thwart nuclear attack
If Israel does decide to mount an attack against Iran, they will run a gauntlet – they will have to fly long distances, over hostile Syria, and other unfriendly countries. They will potentially face a massive counterattack from the growing American presence in the Persian Gulf. When they finally reach Iran, they will suffer even more casualties from the advanced Russian anti-aircraft systems, which will shortly be operational. And when a handful of Israeli aircraft finally reach their targets, the surviving Israeli warplanes will have to somehow inflict sufficient damage on heavily armoured nuclear facilities, some of which are buried hundreds of feet underground, to prevent them from being repaired. There is only one kind of bomb in Israel’s arsenal, which can fulfill this military requirement.

Huckabee: ‘We Are Moving Rapidly Toward the Criminalization of Christianity’
The persecution of Christians because of their moral opposition to homosexual behavior and so-called gay marriage is on the rise in America, to the point where “Christian convictions are under attack as never before” and “we are moving rapidly toward the criminalization of Christianity,” said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who is also an ordained Southern Baptist minister.

Is There a Slippery Slope from Prosthetics to Cyborgs?
The desire for self-enhancement—whether in physical, mental, or economic varieties—is a perennial feature of the human race, a desire only amplified by the millennial wave of techno-optimism that promises that if there’s a problem, there’s an app for that. Short of a mysterious halt in the natural progression of biotechnology, it’s almost certain that prosthetic systems will one day become advanced enough for recreational use—and more. A cyborg is technically defined as a organism that is deeply integrated with an intelligent machine, although in science fiction cyborgs are usually superhuman, not physical therapy patients. Under that definition, cyborgs don’t exist yet, but there’s no reason to rule out their emergence in the next century or two.

Bigger earthquake coming on Nepal's terrifying faults
Nepal faces larger and more deadly earthquakes, even after the magnitude-7.8 temblor that killed more than 5,000 people on Saturday. Earthquake experts say Saturday's Nepal earthquake did not release all of the pent-up seismic pressure in the region near Kathmandu. According to GPS monitoring and geologic studies, some 33 to 50 feet (10 to 15 meters) of motion may need to be released, said Eric Kirby, a geologist at Oregon State University. The earth jumped by about 10 feet (3 m) during the devastating April 25 quake, the U.S. Geological Survey reported. "The earthquakes in this region can be much, much larger," said Walter Szeliga, a geophysicist at Central Washington University.

WHO: Global Threat From Antibiotic Resistance Growing
The World Health Organization says an increasing number of infections are no longer treatable because of growing antimicrobial resistance, putting the lives of millions of people at risk. The WHO study finds no region in the world is prepared to combat this serious global threat.  Only one-quarter of the 133 countries has a comprehensive plan to fight resistance to antibiotics and other antimicrobial medicines. The survey also finds public awareness of the issue remains generally low and many people believe antibiotics are effective against viral infections.  It says this leads to antibiotics being used when they are not required or effective, which can lead to resistance.
