Jesus/Rose/Planet Terror?

Jesus Campos, security guard in Las Vegas shooting resurfaces
"Las Vegas: The security guard who was described as "missing" in recent news reports has turned up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, where he taped his first public account of being wounded as he responded to Stephen Paddock's deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas.
In a segment set for broadcast on Wednesday,
Jesus Campos described how he was called to check on an open hallway door near Paddock's suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and casino, and how he was struck by gunfire moments before the shooter unleashed a fusillade of bullets on a crowd of concertgoers below."

Twitching in My Backyard

I was sitting in my dining room around lunchtime just after listening to a podcast about bird-watching, or twitching, and I heard this awful commotion coming from my backyard.
The strange life of the twitcher
"Sean says everywhere he goes he is thinking about birds, and in family photos he can often be seen looking to the sky.
In 2002 he set out to break the Australian birdwatching record, of seeing the most species of birds in one year.
And he did it, against the odds, and sometimes in the strangest of circumstances.
Sean is now the editor of Australian Birdlife.

Aussie Backyard Bird Count
When I looked outside I saw a whole heap of frantic black and white feathers flapping around wildly and at first I thought it was just a magpie trying to scare off my metal magpie I have in my backyard.
It turned out to be a butcher-bird, but it wasn't the metal magpie that had its attention, it was a snake.
It was trying to take off with a 2 foot long dark green snake that had a body as thick as a garden hose.
The bird nearly took flight with it, but when it was about four foot into flight it dropped the twitching snake behind my bins and then went looking to reclaim its find.
I was truly hoping the bird would find the snake again and get it out of my backyard, because I was in the habit of going out to throw stuff in my bins at night barefooted without the lights on...but not anymore I'm afraid....because now I am afraid literally to do that anymore.
After a good hunt for the snake the butcher-bird took off without its bounty leaving me with a bloody missing snake in my backyard. and me twitching in my boots.
I never got a shot of the bird with the snake unfortunately, or the snake for that matter.
In fact I have no idea where the bloody snake went.
It must have buried itself in the leaves and got away.
Lights on at night for my future bin trips from now on...I'm afraid.
Butcher Birds?
The butcher-bird that would visit me at my last place that I rented at the time
I just hope my new friend doesn't bring me anymore home warming gifts in future;-)

Las Vegas shooting: Police offer new timeline of events, say Paddock targeted jet fuel tanks
"Las Vegas investigators have offered a new version of events in a shifting timeline surrounding the deadliest shooting in modern US history, as they described how the gunman opened fire on nearby airport jet fuel tanks and on police officers arriving at the massacre."

October 1st, 1957?!
Frank recorded this album 60 years ago pretty much to the day of the Vegas shootings and my old mate at 'The Secret Sun' blog has constantly stated the importance of years ending in 7 to all of the synchromystic bizarreness going on right now in 2017.
"On the Road to Mandalay was well poised historically to become a recorded song.
The Victor Talking Machine Company was founded in 1901 in the United States and became the largest and best-known record company in the world.
In 1907 On the Road to Mandalay became available in sheet music and experienced great popularity, selling more than a million copies.
Early recordings date to Earl Cartwright in 1912 and John Croxton, to whom the song was dedicated, in 1913.
Famous baritone singers have recorded the song, from operatic artists, such as Lawrence Tibbett, Leonard Warren and Thomas Hampson, to more popular singers such as Nelson Eddy and Frankie Laine, and even Frank Sinatra, who sang a jazzy, controversial arrangement in which elements of the Kipling text were changed (notably Temple-bells becoming crazy bells)."
""On the Road to Mandalay", based on Rudyard Kipling's poem Mandalay was replaced on some versions of the album after the Kipling family objected to Sinatra's interpretation.
When the album was initially released in the United Kingdom, the song "French Foreign Legion" replaced "Mandalay", while the song "Chicago" (and "It Happened in Monterey" on some pressings) were used in other parts of the British Commonwealth. Sinatra sang the song in Australia, during a concert tour in 1959, and relayed the story of the Kipling family objection to the song and how the Australian release of Come Fly with Me came to contain "Chicago"."
"In The Wizard of Oz, the Cowardly Lion quotes Mandalay during his famous "Courage" speech. 
"What makes the dawn come up like THUNDER?! – Courage.""
Note: I had no intention of putting the above Frank Sinatra clip of him singing 'Over the Rainbow' in this post, but You Tube was going in the background just playing random songs from when I had Googled the Frank Sinatra version of 'The Road to Mandalay' .
To be honest I had never heard him sing the song from
'The Wizard of Oz' before.
Probably just one of those cosmic accidents, right?-)
Heaven Upside Down or Las Vegas: The Sickle (UPDATED)
"Regulus the heart star of the celestial sphinx (Leo) was precisely at the north-south meridian of Las Vegas at the moment the mass shooting started at 10:05 pm PDT, about 42 degrees below the horizon due north.
Go back or forward two minutes and there wouldn’t have been this alignment.
It was precise and existed only at the exact time the massacre commenced."
And twin rainbow over Las Vegas, the day of the Eclipse. 
Rainbows are created  by light refracted at 42 degrees.
And as Chris Knowles remarks in his post linked to above -
"The six stars that form a backward question mark are more popularly known as the “Sickle” in the constellation of
Leo, the Lion."
"All sectors of the human race are represented here – men, women and children – showing that Death does not discern between age, race or gender.
The banner that Death carries has a black background, indicating
an absence of light.
The white rose, on the other hand, indicates beauty, purification and immortality.
In the background of the card, there is a rising sun [Leo?], a sign of immortality.
The sun appears to ‘die’ each night but is reborn fresh and new every morning.
The two pillars are guarding the gateway to the sun, symbolising the knowledge needed to gain immortality.
The boat on the water in the background is the ferry that transports the souls across the River Styx. The background is a neutral grey, again showing Death’s impartiality.
Death is ruled by Scorpio
(the sign of ‘sex, death and taxes’) and the number is 13, sacred to the Goddess as there are thirteen moons in a year."

100th anniversary on Friday the 13th? What are the odds?
Disaster, accidents, incidents, upheaval and temporary stagnation, inertia, lethargy, delay, indecision, destruction.

UPDATE: 19th October, 2017
"The hotel, which was largely made out of teak and built in a traditional Burmese style, was a local landmark popular with tourists.
It took hundreds of firefighters several hours to put out the blaze. More than 140 guests were evacuated.
