The Number 13 & The American National Media

The Number 13


The American National  Media

There have been a display of the number 13 in four stories that have circulated in the American national media.

Alex Rodriguez of the current  baseball world champions New York Yankees, has been in the news steadily during the month of May. Rodriguez who wears the number 13, has been in the news for a hitting his 586th  home run on Sunday, May 9, 2010.  Rodriguez has also been in the news due to a verbal feud with Oakland A’s pitcher  Dallas Braden(who went on to pitch a perfect game on May 9th, 2010).   Dallas Braden was born on August 13,  1983!

Alex Rodriguez has been romantically linked in the news to Kate Hudson as well as more recently Cameron Diaz.

Thirteen year old, Jordan Romero, who became the youngest person to climb Mount Everest mountain. “Unlike neighboring Nepal, the other approach to Everest, China has no age limit for climbers. Jordan registered with Chinese officials in April, said Zhang Mingxing, secretary-general of China Tibet Mountaineering Association”.  Jordan Romero accomplished this news catching feat on Saturday, May 22,  2010.

A 13-year-old  American pianist played in Iraq, with the Iraqi National Symphony. According to the Associated Press on May 22, 2010:

“A 13-year-old piano prodigy from Los Angeles brought an Iraqi audience to their feet Saturday when he made a rare guest appearance with the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra in Baghdad, a city struggling to revive its once-vibrant cultural scene.”

“Llewellyn Kingman Sanchez Werner, who studies piano and composition at New York’s renowned Julliard School, got a standing ovation from an enthusiastic crowd of about 250 after performing Gershwin’s “Rhapsody in Blue,” and warmly embraced the conductor. Most of the audience at Baghdad’s Rasheed Hotel was Iraqi, though a few American soldiers were in the crowd.”

 “We connected well with this orchestra. I like the spontaneity of it. Honestly we had a ball up there,” he told The Associated Press afterward.

The  fourth news item  with the number 13, was the death of  baseball player Jose Lima, who played for 13 years in the major leagues. He played for five baseball teams, one of which was the Los Angeles Dodgers where his record was 13-5.  Lima also won 13 games for the Kansas City Royals, where he pitched for 2 years and accumulated a record of 13 wins and 19 losses.  His earned run average (ERA) for his entire career was  5.26. When we reduce “5.26” we get 13: 5+2+6= 13.

 Baseball gives Lima’s date of birth as September 30, 1972.  This translates to “13” when done in the following manner to  9+30+1+9+7+2=58=13.  When we examine his date of death we also get 13: May 23, 2010= 5+2+3+2+0+1+0=13

However when Lima’s date of birth is in the following numerological fashion added as :9+3+0+1+9+7+2=31, the place value reversal of 13. When we add the date of death in a different manner, we also get 31: May 23, 2010= 5+23+2+0+1+0= 31.

Whichever way we choose decipher the numerological imprint, it is interesting to note that both Lima’s birth and passing are governed by the single digit expression of 13 or 31, which is 4: 1+3=4 or 3+1=4.
