Social Mood shows an emphasis on ideology and an increased willingness to sacrifice for a higher purpose. This combined with a continuing high global risk of violence and terrorist activity is concerning. Factors associated with mayhem and unrest are also on the rise.
Another trend of interest is a sharp rise in epidemic factors. This can correspond with increased interest in disease, sickness, and mortality. The China bird flu may become more of a serious concern this week. This trend may also correspond with poisons, toxins, or environmental destruction. It would be best to monitor news updates to see how this will express itself.
While violence and terrorism factors remain elevated, it is unlikely that a major attack will occur on U.S. soil. Should there be any incidents, the targets with the highest likelihood are Russia, Europe, the United States, and E. Asia.
The risk for natural disasters should continue to decline and remain at low levels.
