Big chill set to drag us back to winter

A chilly band of weather drags us back into winter this weekend with snowfall forecast to sea-level in the south and temperatures plunging.

MetService meteorologist Ciaran Doolin said a serious of cold fronts is moving up the South Island today.

They're already hitting southern areas and will reach Nelson by evening.
Heavy snow warnings are in place for Southland, Clutha, southern Fiordland, Otago and Banks Peninsula.

Right now areas down to 300 metres above sea level in Southland and 500 metres in Otago are getting a dusting but it could reach sea-level this evening in those areas, Mr Doolin said.

Above the Canterbury Plains snow will fall down to about 400 metres.

Mr Doolin said temperatures would also fall with the "usual suspects" hit the hardest.

Inland areas around Mt Cook, Lake Pukaki and Twizel will shiver through a -6C night and some parts of Central Otago, around Cromwell, Clyde and Alexandra, will drop to about -4C. The North Island isn't so bad today.

California to List World's Most Commonly Used Herbicide as Carcinogen

California’s Environmental Protection Agency has announced that it will list glyphosate — a widely used herbicide dangerous to people and linked to the dramatic decline of monarch butterflies — as a chemical known to cause cancer. Earlier this year the World Health Organization found that glyphosate, commonly known as Roundup, was a probable human carcinogen based on extensive research.

Manned spacecraft Soyuz with crew of three docks with ISS

Russia’s manned spacecraft Soyuz TMA-18M with a crew of three has docked with the research module Poisk of the International Space Station, Mission Control near Moscow has told TASS.
"The docking was normal and on time," Mission Control said.
It was the 500th launch from pad number one, from where the world’s first man in space Yuri Gagarin made his orbital flight on April 12, 1961 to usher in the era of manned space exploration.
The original plan was the spacecraft would dock with the ISS six hours after liftoff, but later a decision was made in favour of a safer, two-day approach procedure.

Hawaii Sees Tenfold Increase in Birth Defects After Becoming GM Corn Testing Grounds

By Jay Syrmopoulos

Doctors are sounding the alarm after noticing a disturbing trend happening in Waimea, on the island of Kauai, Hawaii. Over the past five years, the number of severe heart malformations has risen to more than ten times the national rate, according to an analysis by local physicians.

Pediatrician Carla Nelson, after seeing four of these defects in three years, is extremely concerned with the severe health anomalies manifesting in the local population...

The expansion of the vaccine schedule and the rise of autism

All too often those of us opposed to vaccines hear a simple, yet tired counterargument, "Well I had my shots as a kid and I'm fine." The adults who make this claim don't seem to realize the number of shots they received was far fewer than the number of shots on today's vaccine schedule. And few of them follow the adult vaccine schedule.

In reality, the very well vaccinated are not a healthy bunch. They get sick regularly. This is particularly evident for those who get regular flu shots.

‘West creates refugees by destroying Islamic nations’ – Chechen leader

The head of Russia’s Chechen Republic claims the current asylum seeker crisis in European countries originated in the aggressive policies of the United States and the EU. He also called upon all Muslim nations to jointly fight the root of the problem.

“If today no one rises against the inhumane policies of the Western countries, tomorrow the disaster may come to any Muslim country. I call upon you to urgently discuss this problem, to develop a unified position and to save the lives of thousands of people.
Europe and the USA are not simply refusing to act, they instigate the tragedies of millions of people by destroying the economy of Islamic countries and starting wars in Muslim regions of the world, he added.

Russia launches 3D-printed UAVs

The Russian research and development company Lutch designed a short-range unmanned aerial vehicle.
The sample could have been printed via a 3D printer and thus, the production of such drones may be put into effect. The Russian designers spent only a month and a half for this type of UAV, that is a record-breaking term. At present, the trials of newly designed drone are being carried out.
Pravda.Ru reported, that first mass production of new age UAVs opens in Russia on 3 September.
Today, Russia is also capable of neutralizing cruise robots of an enemy. A microwave gun created to serve the interests of the Ministry of Defence will be demonstrated behind closed door of the "Army-2015" forum.

Russia’s Soyuz spacecraft makes manoeuvre to avoid collision with space junk

"A fragment of the spent third stage of a Japanese carrier rocket, launched in 1989, happened to be on the spacecraft’s flight path. Ballisticians of the Russian mission control and their American colleagues worked jointly to prevent a collision," Roscosmos said.
According to the agency, the manoeuvre was conducted at 08:40, Moscow time. "The manoeuvre ensured absolutely safe avoidance of a collision with the object expected to approach at 11:30 - 11:40, Moscow time. The Soyuz TMA-18M spacecraft continues its nominal flight to the ISS," Roscosmos reported.
The spacecraft is to dock to the ISS on September 4 at 10:35, Moscow time.

'Chemical cosh' scandal': Thousands of patients with no history of mental illness needlessly given cocktail of anti-psychotic drugs

Doctors are needlessly doling out powerful anti- psychotic drugs to thousands of patients, experts warn.

People with learning disabilities, dementia and autism are being given the drugs as a ‘chemical cosh’ to control their behaviour, research shows.

Anti-psychotics should normally be used to treat mental illness such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

But a study published in the British Medical Journal last night reveals that 71 per cent of people with learning difficulties who are prescribed the drugs have no history of severe mental illness.

The findings will fuel growing concerns that the nation has become ‘over-medicalised’ and that thousands of patients are suffering harmful side effects as a result. Use of the drugs as a chemical restraint to alter the behaviour of vulnerable patients is particularly worrying.

The Polio VACCINE is Causing the New Polio

Yes, the vaccines are causing the problem. The authorities know it. It is admitted. This is not conspiracy theory, but sad fact.

The system is willing to break a few eggs and ruin lives in order to achieve their global vaccination agenda – all while they insist that vaccines are both safe and effective.

Poliovirus has returned to Europe after a five year reprieve, paralyzing a 4-year-old and 11-year-old in the Ukraine, the World Health Organization said Wednesday.

The strain responsible, vaccine-derived poliovirus type 1 or cVDPV... is a rare, mutated form of the virus that comes from the vaccine itself.

And it is expected to spread...

Humans have wiped out nearly half the world's trees

Humans are responsible for having wiped out nearly half of the trees on earth, according to new research co-authored by a Kiwi scientist.

A study just published in the major journal Nature estimated deforestation was presently responsible for removing over 15 billion trees each year and the global number of trees has dropped 46 per cent since human civilisation.

The researchers were however also able to calculate that there are more than three trillion trees in the world - about eight times higher than previous estimates - and this equated to about 422 trees-per-person in the world, not 61 as originally thought.

The study, led by researchers from 15 countries, used satellite imagery, forest inventories and supercomputer technologies to generate a map of the world's forests.

More than 420,000 ground-sourced measurements of tree density from 50 countries and every continent, except Antarctica, were used - previous estimates relied solely on satellite imagery.

'Antipsychotics used on people with no mental illness diagnosis'

Charities and campaign groups have long warned that elderly people – such as those with dementia – should not be treated with antipsychotic drugs unless they have a severe mental illness. This study showed that older people were also more likely to be prescribed an antipsychotic.

This study can't tell us why people with learning disabilities were prescribed antipsychotic drugs when they didn't have a severe mental illness. The authors suggest the drugs are being used to manage challenging behaviour.

Psychiatrists drugging children for “social justice”

It’s the latest thing. Psychiatrists are now giving children in poor neighborhoods Adderall, a dangerous stimulant, by making false diagnoses of ADHD, or no diagnoses at all. Their aim? To “promote social justice,” to improve academic performance in school.

The rationale is, the drugged kids will now be able to compete with children from wealthier families who attend better schools.

Leading the way is Dr. Michael Anderson, a pediatrician in the Atlanta area. Incredibly, Anderson told the New York Times his diagnoses of ADHD are “made up,” “an excuse” to hand out the drugs.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/09/health/attention-disorder-or-not-chi...

“We’ve decided as a society that it’s too expensive to modify the kid’s environment. So we have to modify the kid,” Anderson said.

It would be hard to find a clearer mission statement from a psychiatrist: mind control.

EPA May Set Limits on the Amount of GMO Corn Grown in US

Companies like Monsanto have long touted the benefits of their genetically modified seeds, which make up about half of their annual profits. But these pesticide producing plants have a major downside. While they may produce higher yields at first, the pests they’re supposed to kill can quickly evolve to resist the poison.

This is causing big problems for Americas corn crops, of which over 90% are genetically modified. GMO corn is starting to produce pesticide resistant rootworms, which are now more abundant than ever before. This in turn is forcing farmers to spray even more pesticides on their crops, which not only poses more risks for human health, but would increase the pesticide resistance of the rootworms in the long run. Now the EPA may set limits on how much GMO corn can be grown in the US. EPA deputy Bill Jordan noted “It is getting worse, what’s happened so far hasn’t prevented these problems from arising, so we see need for something more.”

Live Baby ‘Just Fell Out,’ Parts Sold for Profit

On the video StemExpress CEO Cate Dyer describes starting her private for-profit company after working as a procurement specialist for non-profit Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR). She says ABR used to collect specimens for free until she started StemExpress and began offering payments for collection.

That seems to have changed profoundly because Dyer now charges that ABR pays an “advisor fee” to abortion clinic board members in order to have exclusive access to aborted fetal baby parts. Moreover, according to documents provided by the Center for Medical Progress, ABR now pays $340 per second trimester specimen.

According to CMP, “ABR is the oldest baby-parts company in the U.S., founded in 1989 by Linda Tracy. For twenty-six years they have partnered with multiple Planned Parenthood affiliates to harvest fetal tissue to sell for experimentation.”

NRC Rejects Recommendation to Require Nuclear Plant Owners to Establish Plans to Address a Core-Melt Accident

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) has rejected the recommendation of the high-level task force it convened after the March 2011 Fukushima disaster to require nuclear plant owners to develop and maintain plans for coping with a core-melt accident. This decision will allow nuclear plants to continue to maintain those plans voluntarily and deny the agency the authority to review those plans or issue citations if they are deficient.

“Once again, the NRC is ignoring a key lesson of the Fukushima accident: Emergency plans are not worth the paper they are printed on unless they are rigorously developed, maintained and periodically exercised,” said Edwin Lyman, a senior scientist at the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). “When it comes to these critical safety measures, the NRC is allowing the industry to regulate itself.”

EPA Raises Alarm Over GMO Crops that Are Breeding Swarms of These Mutant Bugs

One of the promises of GMO crops was that they would be more resistant to bugs and pests, however, it seems that the chemicals used on these crops, and the modifications that have been made to their basic structure, have actually created an explosion in pesticide resistant bugs. It was reported this week that genetically modified crops, corn specifically, has created a pesticide resistant rootworm, that is now stronger and more numerous than ever before. To make matters even worse, due to the growing over-infestation, farmers have been forced to use even more of the harmful pesticides that have been known to contribute to cancer, and are suspected of devastating the global honeybee population.

How The Trans-Agenda Seeks To Redefine Everyone

Did you think only women get pregnant? Or only women get abortions? Planned Parenthood and NARAL—ironically both pro-abortion organizations that self-identify as champions of women’s rights—may soon be trying to change your mind about that.
It’s About Control, Not Rights

The transgender movement has strong totalitarian overtones that Americans (especially certain senators) don’t fully understand. How else to describe a crusade with such far-reaching consequences for First Amendment rights? The legal destruction of gender distinctions will inevitably dissolve family autonomy, thereby uprooting freedom of association. Free expression becomes “hate speech” if one doesn’t fall into line with the directives of the transgender lobby or its pronoun protocol. Freedom of religion takes a direct hit any way you look at it.

How Shoddy Science Creates Big Government

In the popular imagination, the work of scientists is marked by a series of "Eureka!" moments. But most science is not about glorious flashes of insight. Instead, its humble aim is to be less wrong about the theories that govern our understanding of the universe.

The best way to judge new theories, then, is the old adage of "trust, but verify." In recent decades, however, this simple advice has been ignored thanks to perverse incentives and human biases.

The amount of funding available to scientific research hasn't kept up with the growing number of scientists in training. To get a bite of the funding pie, many scientists have been led astray. How many? Witness the ten-fold rise in the number of retractions issues in scientific literature, nearly half of which may be the result of fraud. – Quartz, Aug. 28, 2015

Clinton emails contained spy satellite data on North Korean nukes

Multiple intelligence sources who spoke to The Washington Times, solely on the condition of anonymity, said concerns about the movement of the North Korean information through Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured server are twofold.

First, spy satellite information is frequently classified at the top-secret level and handled within a special compartment called Talent-Keyhole. This means it is one of the most sensitive forms of intelligence gathered by the U.S.

Understanding human conflict requires us to understand human psychology. And it is only when we understand the psychology that drives conflict that we can take intelligent steps to address it.

Unfortunately, understanding the psychology of conflict is not easy and I would like to illustrate one significant problem in this regard and explain what we can do about it. That problem is what is often called ‘projection’ or ‘transference’ and it illustrates the importance of emotional, as distinct from intellectual, content in any conflict.

David Hibbitt's doctors diagnosed him with a "terminal" case of bowel cancer that they said would kill him within 18 months, but he successfully eliminated this cancer on his own by taking therapeutic doses of cannabis oil at a cost of about $75 per month.

Doctors will be made obsolete by emerging AI diagnosis systems

Nearly everyone with internet access has, at one point or another, used an online diagnostic tool when trying to identify an illness. It’s a sure-fire way to scare the heck out of yourself — almost invariably, you will find that many of your symptoms appear to match those of some rare and fatal disease.

Old weapons and well motivated fighters who use guerilla tactics professionally.
Good Infantry! The Saudis are in for it.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

9.Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

5.Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

Bt cotton: Govt admits Monsanto never had patent in India

kinda like Nestle's expired permit snip: Once indigenous Bt varieties are developed, the seeds now available at 800 for a 450 gram pack could be sold at 100 a kg, say experts. Also, after buying seeds the first time, farmers could save seeds from each crop for reuse next year, thus saving a major amount.

From abortions to vaccines to chemotherapy: How modern medicine is steeped in a culture of death and denial

The standard medical approach in the West is to bombard the body with drugs and poison whenever there's an ailment, rather than try to prevent illness by fortifying the body through nutrition and healthy living. This reactionary approach, or what many recognize as the allopathic model of healthcare, has led to the advent of all sorts of deadly interventions such as abortion, vaccination and chemotherapy, all of which involve death and destruction rather than life and healing.

High Drug Prices Are Killing Americans

All across the country, Americans are finding that the prices of the prescription drugs they need are soaring. Tragically, doctors tell us that many of their patients can no longer afford their medicine. As a result, some get sicker. Others die.

A new Kaiser Health poll shows that most Americans think prescription drug costs in this country are unreasonable, and that drug companies put profits before people. Want to know something? They're right.

CDC Issues Warning: Doctors on Alert for Bubonic Plague: “There is a Heightened Risk… We Don’t Want People To Panic”

“It is unclear why the number of cases in 2015 is higher than usual,” the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says. Many of the cases are occurring in rural and semi-rural areas in the western United States. The report lists two cases in Arizona, one in California, four in Colorado, one in Georgia, two in New Mexico and one in Oregon. The cases in California and Georgia have been linked to areas in or near Yosemite National Park in the southern Sierra Nevada. Dr. Natalie Kwit of the CDC emphasizes, “We don’t want people to panic but we do want them to be aware of the heightened risk.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course the illegal immigrants who came into the US carrying Bubonic plague have nothing to do with it!

Dementia now striking people in their 40s as mercury from vaccines causes slow, degenerative brain damage

Dementia and other neurological brain diseases are striking people younger and younger, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Bournemouth University in England and published in the journal Surgical Neurology International. These diseases have reached levels that are "almost epidemic," the researchers said, and they reached them so quickly that environmental factors must be largely to blame.

Growth of Cancer

Now, that's pretty convincing! Cancer deaths clearly have not been going up in recent years; they've been going down. Kudos to medical science. Kudos to the Competitive Enterprise Institute for exposing a fraud. So much for the theory that cancer is a "modern" disease -- except for one tiny little problem. The graph starts in 1975. Why not earlier since data is available for those years?

One need go no further than the graphs found in Cancer Trends During the 20th Century, as published in the Journal of Australian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine for the answer. See for yourself how cancer rates evolved in Sweden during the 20th Century -- and be sure and check out what happens on each graph around the mid-70s where the National Cancer Institute graph begins:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The National Cancer Institute is fudging their graphs as badly as the global wamring people fudge theirs!

CDC Admits 98 Million Americans Received Polio Vaccine In An 8-Year Span When It Was Contaminated With Cancer Virus

The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which WAS cached here (since removed by google so you can view an image of the cache here), admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span from 1955-1963 when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.

Ethnic Nepotism, Incompetence and Parasitism at Britain’s National Health Service

With a dazzling smile and expensively-styled long hair, glamorous Dr Ola Orekunrin is a walking advertisement for the new multi-ethnic Britain. Not only was she — at 21 — the youngest person ever to qualify as a doctor but she has since held down important posts at a string of prestigious hospitals.

A shining example, then, of a talented immigrant giving back to the country that had given her so much. Although Nigerian-born she was raised by white foster parents in a Suffolk village and educated by nuns. But she retained her family connections to her homeland so no-one was surprised when she decided to give up the day job and launch an air ambulance service ferrying needy medical cases from Africa to Britain. All above board and paid for privately, of course.

Monsanto wants to replace the bees they are killing with genetically engineered flying ants

So, once again, we are seeing proof of Monsanto's endgame, complete corporate control of our food supply. They admit their GMO foods and pesticides are killing our bees, but instead of putting the welfare of the entire world's food supply ahead of their corporate greed, they will create a new abomination while their poisonous plants and chemicals continue to wreak havoc on current and future biodiversity.

Dementia and other neurological brain diseases are striking people younger and younger, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Bournemouth University in England and published in the journal Surgical Neurology International. These diseases have reached levels that are "almost epidemic," the researchers said, and they reached them so quickly that environmental factors must be largely to blame.

"The rate of increase in such a short time suggests a silent or even a 'hidden' epidemic, in which environmental factors must play a major part, not just ageing," lead researcher Colin Pritchard said.

PEOPLE ARE STILL LIVING IN FEMA’S TOXIC KATRINA TRAILERS — AND THEY LIKELY HAVE NO IDEA

FEMA ultimately succeeded in deploying 140,000 trailers up and down the ravaged Gulf Coast. Then it had to start figuring out what to do with them as people began to rebuild their lives and leave them behind. The agency had planned on getting rid of the trailers by selling them, possibly even to the people who were living in them, but that was no longer an option. In July of 2007, FEMA suspended sales of the trailers to the public, and in November, it announced plans to move as many residents as possible out of the trailers — partly, a FEMA spokesperson said, because of formaldehyde levels.

Statin Drugs Linked To Arthritis, Heart Trouble And More

Research revealing the broad spectrum toxicity of statin drugs continues to accumulate unabated. A study reveals that these cholesterol-lowering drugs may be contributing to an epidemic of arthritis and autoimmunity in exposed populations, adding to a growing body of clinical evidence that they may cause over 300 adverse health effects.

Published this month in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy, and titled “Statins accelerate the onset of collagen type II-induced arthritis in mice,” researchers found that 100% of the animals given statin drugs developed arthritis and markers of autoimmunity versus 58% in the control population who did not receive them.

Using wood to get a cleaner drink of water

Following a major quake, Wellingtonians may have a local student to thank for a giardia-free drink of water.

Wadestown School student Jacqui Ormsby won last week's Wellington Regional Science and Technology Fair with her discovery native woods like totara could filter out the stomach illness-causing parasite. "The tree does it naturally. It goes up through the roots and it filters out the bugs and the dirt, while taking it to the branches."

The system the 13-year-old designed used gravity to drive it: a 2L water bottle is connected to a plastic hose fitted with a 15mm piece of bark-stripped wood, held in place by plumber's tape. Jacqui wanted a set-up any household could make in a situation like the aftermath of a major disaster.

"I wanted to focus on emergencies because of all the earthquakes that happen in New Zealand."

Texas teenager creates $20 water purifier to tackle toxic e-waste pollution

Consumer electronics, including computers and mobiles, are leaving a legacy of toxic waste in countries including China and India. Recycling factories across Asia are recovering e-waste exported from around the world, but discharging heavy metals and chemicals into local water supplies in the process.

...

Now a new filtering device, invented by a US teenager, could provide a cheap and easy way to purify water.

The renewable heavy metal filter, designed by 18-year-old Perry Alagappan, removes 99% of heavy metals from water that passes through it. The filter, built from graphene nanotubes, can be rinsed with a vinegar concentrate and reused. The highly concentrated waste can then be evaporated, leaving a deposit of pure metal that can be used in many different applications.
