The story of the man in Calais, Maine who decided on the evening of the 4th of July 2015, to put a fireworks mortar on his head and set it off, makes us wonder about folks and what they do on the 4th. But, despite the jokes about him being a Darwin Award winner, you have to remember the human element behind such news items.
Devon Staples had been drinking with friends Saturday evening and setting off fireworks, when Maine State Police say he put a mortar on his head and lit it. It exploded, killing Staples instantly. His friends and family grieve, his father said he thought it was a dud, and he was joking around. Looking deeper into the incident, it seems Staples might have not thought it was live explosive.
Turns out the 22-year-old (11 + 11) was an actor and something of a comedian. Devon Staples used to work at Disney World in Orlando and would dress up as Gaston and Goofy. The duality in his life may have ended it.
Other “celebrities” had fireworks accidents this 4th of July. A “twinning” event occurred this year when two NFL players lost fingers.
New York Giants NFL superstar Jason Pierre-Paul had his finger amputated dur to an injury to his hand during a fireworks show at his Florida home. In 2009, his junior year in college, he played for the University of Florida, Tampa, Florida, and then entered the NFL draft of 2010.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback C. J. Wilson lost two fingers due to a July 4th fireworks accident at his Lincolnton, North Carolina home.
Rarely do we see times like these.
It is really too much for me to capture, so I’m going to rely on some friends and their hints to fill out part of the picture here.
“One measures a circle, beginning anywhere,” as Charles Fort wrote.
The date 7-7 seems as good as anyplace to start. Various people who were 77 died around this day, but look what happened on the date.
On July 7, 2015, over Moncks Corner, South Carolina, a F-16 fighter jet collided with a small plane, a Cessna, killing two people and raining down plane parts and debris over a wide swath of marshes and rice fields. The two people aboard the smaller Cessna were the ones killed, and the plane was completely destroyed. The pilot of the F-16 ejected and “is apparently uninjured,” he said.
Then Johanna Lenski pointed out: “I just found out the time of the crash was 11 am, 11 miles away from Charleston.”
Sibyl Hunter said:
The pilot, Maj. Aaron Johnson from the 55th Fighter Squadron [of Charleston] ejected and survived. Another 55/ISIS/1515 sync to go with the 77s and 11s. Also of note, the crash happened over Lewisfield Plantation where 178 slaves were once held. And I don’t know if it’s relevant at all but the story made the biblical rapture scripture pop into my head:
“After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” (1 Thes 4:17)
With the killing of 9 at the Mother Emanuel Church in Charleston, much thought has been placed on the name “Charles.”
Charles \ch(ar)-les\ as a boy’s name is pronounced charlz. It is of Old German origin, and the meaning of Charles is “free man”. From “karl”, similar to Old English “churl”, meaning “man, serf” (slaves/blacks/ CHARLEStown). The first Holy Roman Emperor (seventh to eighth century) Charlemagne (Latin Carolus Magnus (Magus), meaning “Charles the Great”) was a powerful German leader (Hitler?), who created a more ordered society out of the chaos that followed the fall of Rome. He united France and much of central Europe. His widespread fame gave rise to many forms of his name. Charles is the French variant of Carolus or Karolus, adopted by the English especially since the 17th-century reigns of kings Charles I and II. Charles and its variant forms have been favoured by the royalty of several countries, including the present Prince of Wales. Charlie and Charly are occasionally used for girls. See also Arlo. Naturalist Charles Darwin (Eugenics); French president Charles de Gaulle; author Charles Dickens; actor Charlie Chaplin; basketball player Charles Barkley.
Later, on July 7, 2015, the Fayette Factor collided with the day. Near the University of Maryland, there was a quadruple shooting, in the 900 block of W. Fayette St, West Baltimore, at 11 PM, 7-7-15, that left 3 dead, 1 injured.
There appears to be a good deal of duality, twins, and repeating situations going on. This happened during the animal attacks, when sharks and sturgeon appeared to be repeating attacks in the same spots. There have been others. As RS wrote me: “[Besides the] two false calls of gunshots reported on two different military bases, we should keep in mind this recent run of occurrences that take place before and then re-occur again only this time fatally. Plane crashes on the same street, a stairwell collapses again, flying sturgeon….”

As of July 8, 2015, there have been 17 lightning fatalities in the lower 48 states.
John A. Keel’s 1970s’ newletter, The Anomaly News often carried one of his favorite obsessions, his reports of the less-than-random intersection of lightning and the name game. Similar overlaps continue today.
At Fort Morgan, Alabama, a 12-year-old girl, Megan Nickell of North Little Rock, Arkansas, was killed by lightning on July 7, 2015. She was playing soccer on Fort Morgan peninsula beach.
National Weather Service lightning specialist John Jensenius says Nickell’s death is the third lightning fatality this year in Alabama and the 17th in the country.
Charles Name Game
Enki King writes: “The odds of all these Charles syncs happening must be the same as four people getting struck by lightning in the same storm. Oh wait, that just happened. The two survivors were taken to Prince Charles Hospital.”
Two men (one said to be carrying a selfie-stick) died who were hit in separate lightning strikes on the Brecon Beacons (a mountainous area of Wales), while two other men were hospitalized with their injuries at “nearby Prince Charles hospital.”
One of the dead men was identified as Jeremy ‘Jez’ Prescott, 51, from Telford, Shropshire, (shown here with his dog Charlie), a Duke of Edinburgh Award expedition leader.
Fayette Factor (see more recently here)
Jacob Bryan Russell Neff, 17, of Ansted, West Virginia, died on June 1, 2015, after being struck by lightning. Neff and two other boys were fishing at a pond when a tree they took shelter under was struck by lightning. The call came in around 3:30 p.m. on the 1st, in an area of Elverton Road nearFayetteville. Neff was killed and the other boys were injured. Neff was an 11th grader at FayettevilleHigh School, according to Charleston, WV media.
Finally, we need to mention that on July 8, 2015, three “coincidences” happened with the shut down of the United Airlines flights (all were grounded), the New York Stock Exchange (trading was suspended for about 4 hours) and the Wall Street Journal’s website (was down). Homeland Security said it was not a cyberattack.
But you could not convince the social conspiracy community of that.
World famous astrologer Philip Levine, founder in 1985 of Sirius Astrological Services, told me in an exclusive interview that the new Royal baby is definitely a complete Cancerian. “Very Cancer (4 planets; none in Leo), but just barely Cancer (29 degrees, 58 minutes of Cancer for Sun),” said astrologer Levine.
George Alexander Louis
The royal baby is named George Alexander Louis, the Clarence House has announced. Prince William and his wife, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, name their baby George Alexander Louis. He will be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge.
It is generally acknowledged that the current son of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, when he becomes king, will be known as King George VII. There is no direct connection between the first name given to princes and what name they will use as kings. The new Prince George might be King Alexander or King Louis someday, for example.
He also may have a pet name around the castle, but that will be kept private for some time. The word formed by his initials, GAL, probably will not be used as a nickname – and one wonders if much forethought was given about this combination.
Here are the meanings behind George Alexander Louis.
George is from the Greek name Γεωργιος (Georgios) which was derived from the Greek word γεωργος (georgos) meaning “farmer, earthworker”, itself derived from the elements γη (ge) “earth” and εργον (ergon) “work.”
Saint George was a 3rd-century Roman soldier from Palestine who was martyred during the persecutions of emperor Diocletian. Later legends describe his defeat of a dragon, with which he was often depicted in medieval art. Initially Saint George was primarily revered by Eastern Christians, but returning crusaders brought stories of him to Western Europe and he became the patron of England, Portugal, Catalonia and Aragon.
The name was rarely used in England until the German-born George I came to the British throne in the 18th century. Five subsequent British kings have borne the name. Other famous bearers include two kings of Greece, the composer George Frideric Handel (1685-1759), the first president of the United States, George Washington (1732-1797), and the Pacific explorer George Vancouver (1757-1798). This was also the pen name of authors George Eliot (1819-1880) and George Orwell (1903-1950), real names Mary Anne Evans and Eric Arthur Blair respectively.
Alexander is the Latinized form of the Greek name Αλεξανδρος (Alexandros), which meant “defending men” from Greek αλεξω (alexo) “to defend, help” and ανηρ (aner) “man” (genitive ανδρος). In Greek mythology this was another name of the hero Paris, and it also belongs to several characters in the New Testament.
Alexander the Great
The most famous bearer was Alexander the Great, King of Macedon. In the 4th century BC he built a huge empire out of Greece, Egypt, Persia, and parts of India. Due to his fame, and later medieval tales involving him, use of his name spread throughout Europe. The name has been used by kings of Scotland, Poland and Yugoslavia, emperors of Russia, and eight popes. Other notable bearers include English poet Alexander Pope (1688-1744), American statesman Alexander Hamilton (1755-1804), Scottish-Canadian explorer Sir Alexander MacKenzie (1764-1820), Russian poet Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837), and Alexander Graham Bell (1847-1922), the Scottish-Canadian-American inventor of the telephone.
Louis is the French form of Ludovicus, the Latinized form of Ludwig.
One form of the name, as the words Lewis and Louveteau, which, in their original meaning, import two very different things, have in Freemasonry an equivalent signification – the former being used in English, the latter in French, to designate the son of a Mason. Within Freemasonry, Lewis is a significant name.
Louis XIV, the Sun King of France
The form Louis was the name of 18 kings of France, starting with Louis I the son of Charlemagne, and including Louis IX (Saint Louis) who led two crusades and Louis XIV (the “Sun King”) who was the ruler of France during the height of its power, the builder of the Palace of Versailles, and the longest reigning monarch in the history of Europe. Apart from among royalty, this name was only moderately popular in France during the Middle Ages. After the French Revolution, when Louis XVI was guillotined, it became less common. The Normans brought the name to England, where it was usually spelled Lewis, though the spelling Louis has been more common in America. Famous bearers include French scientist Louis Pasteur (1822-1895), Métis leader Louis Riel (1844-1885), who led a rebellion against Canada, and Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), who wrote Treasure Island and Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.
