I sat on this for awhile out of respect for the loss experienced by James' family and friends. Now that the funeral and estate have been settled, there seem to be a few correlations between Space Weather events and Sudden Cardiac Arrest to be pointed out. Keep in mind: Italy is +2 Hours UTC.
So, what happened to James, according to the MSM?
According to E!online: "Gandolfini was originally in Italy to attend the Taormina Film Festival and was rushed to the Policlinico Umberto I hospital after his 13-year-old son found him collapsed in their hotel bathroom.
The hospital's ER director said the actor arrived at the emergency room 'in a cardiac arrest, accompanied by ambulance of the 118 service [similar to 911 in the U.S.].' Unfortunately, 'the attempts to rescue failed, and at 23:00 [11 p.m.] the patient died, formally died.'"
ABC News reported that: "Gandolfini fell ill Wednesday night in his room at the Hotel Exedra. The actor was taken to the hospital around 10:40 PM as paramedics attempted to resuscitate him.
At the hospital, doctors attempted to resuscitate the actor for another 40 minutes, but were unsuccessful, according to Prof. Claudio Modini, director of the hospital's emergency department."
A USA Today article laments on the fact that deaths like Gandolfini's are too common:
"Cardiac Arrest is caused when the heart's electrical system malfunctions. In cardiac arrest, death results when the heart suddenly stops working properly. This may be caused by abnormal, or irregular, heart rhythms called arrhythmias. A common arrhythmia in cardia arrest is ventricular fibrillation. this is when the heart's lower chambers suddenly start beating chaotically and don't pump blood. Death occurs within minutes after the heart stops."
James Gandolfini's death has been put down as being the result of 'natural causes,' and I completely agree. However, I would like to go into more detail about what triggered those natural causes in order to impart a more complete understanding of what's happening in our current reality.
Solar Wind Spikes on June 18th, 2013:
Data, Photographs from June 19th:
Excerpts from 4MIN News June 19, 2013 (left):
(1:29) Solar Wind: we have minor rising of the 'orange' density, 'yellow' speed, and 'green' plasma temperature; but I'll point out a single point density spike way, way, way above all the others [just after 20:00 UTC].
(1:41) Magnetosphere Simulation is using only ACE Solar Wind Data, nothing actually monitors field lines. So yes, that spike you see there was the little density peak; this happened yesterday as well in the 04:00 Hour.
Excerpts from 3MIN News June 20, 2013: Major Weather, Solar Wind Spike, "Mid-Watch Lull" Explained (on the left):
(1:06) Cosmic Ray Station in Moscow showing a sharp up-tick in neutron count; coming to the BARTOL, however, reveals elevated but not major readings.
(1:16) Solar Wind just got interesting: while plasma temperature and speed appear poised to rise-the density had no patience-he was like, 'you two can sit here if you want, I'm gone.'
(1:26) SOHO confirms a ten times normal density spike out ahead of what I expect to be speedier particles arriving this afternoon.
(1:33) Electron Flux taking a ding this morning with the GOES Magnetometer struggling to show normalcy; KP-Index is yet unchanged, lets keep watch today.
On the left is an image of two tables from the paper "Clinical Cosmo-biology - Sudden Cardiac Death and Daily/Monthly Geomagnetic, Cosmic Ray and Solar Activity," which concludes:
- The timing of Sudden Cardiac Death shows significant relationship to space physical activity parameters.
- The number of SCD is rising on the highest and lowest daily levels of Geomagnetic Activity. The relatively rare GMA storms concentrate most of SCD at days of lowest GMA.
- Days with SCD are accompanied by higher Cosmic Ray Activity (neutron activity on the Earth's surface) and is additionally increased at days with multiple Sudden Cardiac Deaths.
On June 15th at 09:44:45 UTC we had a Gamma Ray Burst out of the Pavo Constellation making it a total of 10 GRB's for the month of June. Solar Activity was just starting to pick itself up off the floor but was still pretty weak, allowing a greater impact of galactic cosmic rays on Earth.
