Alberta student’s science project finds high radiation levels in grocery-store seafood

Alberta (Canada) high-school student Bronwyn Delacruz loves sushi, but became concerned last summer after learning how little food inspection actually takes place on some of its key ingredients.

The Grade 10 student from Grande Prairie said she was shocked to discover that, in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) stopped testing imported foods for radiation in 2012.

So, she decided to carry out her own tests.

Armed with a $600 Geiger counter bought by her dad, Delacruz studied a variety of seafoods – particularly seaweeds – as part of an award-winning science project that she will take to a national fair next month.

“Some of the kelp that I found was higher than what the International Atomic Energy Agency sets as radioactive contamination, which is 1,450 counts over a 10-minute period,” she said. “Some of my samples came up as 1,700 or 1,800.”

What Would An Eruption Of The Yellowstone Supervolcano Look Like?

On Sunday, the worst earthquake in about 30 years rattled the Yellowstone supervolcano. Overall, there have been at least 25 significant earthquakes at Yellowstone National Park since Thursday, but it is the 4.8 earthquake that has many observers extremely worried. Could such a large earthquake be a sign that the Yellowstone supervolcano is starting to roar to life after all this time? And if it does erupt, what would that mean for the rest of the country? As you will see below, a full-blown eruption at Yellowstone would be absolutely catastrophic.

New Video Exposes Smart Meter Tyranny

Kevin Samson
Activist Post

The pushback against Smart Meter technology is ramping up in any area where they have disgraced people's homes. Despite assurances from "authorities," the evidence is mounting that not only are Smart Meters an economic fraud and an invasion of privacy, they are a serious health hazard. In fact, a major physicians group has gone on record imploring utility companies for the right to opt-out based on pre-existing health conditions and/or specific sensitivity to smart meters' RF microwave radiation and dirty electricity that can trigger cancer and heart disease among a host of other debilitating maladies.

However, the Smart Meter agenda is a very aggressive one, as you will see in the video "Punitive Power"...

Ebola toll rises in 'unprecedented' outbreak

An outbreak of Ebola hemorrhagic fever in West Africa has spread to Guinea's capital and beyond its borders in an "unprecedented epidemic," a leading aid agency reported Monday.

A total of 122 patients are suspected of contracting Ebola and 78 have died, Doctors Without Borders said. Most victims have been in Guinea, but the World Health Organization reported Sunday that two deaths in Sierra Leone and one in Liberia are suspected to have been caused by the Ebola virus.

Cases have been identified in three provinces in Guinea near the borders and in Conakry, its coastal capital, said Mariano Lugli, the Doctors Without Borders coordinator there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Up until now, Ebola outbreaks have occurred in extremely remote locations, whose isolation prevented a wide-spread epidemic. The two exceptions are the 1989 outbreak in Reston, Virginia (which does not affect humans) and Mayinga N'Seka, who made it to Kinshasa in 1976, but died without infecting any of the people she came into contact with.

Ebola is normally passed on my direct contact or aerosolized
secretions in which the virus is protected by a water droplet. Ebola Zaire is thought to be airborn naturally due to its unique protein coat.

The average time it takes between a patient becoming infected to onset of symptoms is 16 days, during which time the patient, feeling perfectly healthy, potentially infects everyone they touch or share a contacted surface with.

The worst case scenario is a patient traveling by air or train, touching various surfaces in the airport or train station and with the aircraft or train itself. Before the patient even boards their plane or train, they can infect other travelers headed for other planes or trains. By the time the plane or train reaches its destination, other travelers will be infected, as will more people at the destination airport or train station.

Previously this did not happen because the earlier outbreaks were always in remote locations, but the cases in Sierra Leon and Liberia suggest infected people are already traveling through the system. Senegal has already closed their border with Guinea. If the case in Canada does in fact turn out to be the same strain of Ebola, then extreme precautionary steps must be taken.

This is a reminder that despite all man's technical prowess, Mother Nature can still give us the finger when she feels like it!

Bio-War In Progress?

Medicine has a long tradition of handling epidemics according to their severity. I got into health care when AIDS was discovered. I was being taught how to handle a quarantine, and waiting for the quarantine to be declared. It never was. Now we have AIDS all over the globe.
Ebola, even the less virulent strains, REQUIRE quarantine, according to the medical procedures I was taught. As with AIDS, this COULD be contained, or it could be allowed to run its course through the population.
This is a LIHOP.

Since late October, 2013, protesters across Thailand have taken to the streets, occupied rally sites, seized government buildings and made their grievances known to the world. They stand in opposition of the regime of Thaksin Shinawatra - a Wall Street-backed billionaire autocrat, convicted criminal, accused mass murderer, and fugitive who is openly running the country from abroad via his nepotist appointed proxy, his sister, Yingluck Shinawatra.

Getting Hotter or Getting Colder? Either Way You Need to Step Up Your Preps

Both warming and cooling will lead to food insecurity issues.

Both warming and cooling will cause a massive die off of the population due to ill health and malnutrition.

Both warming and cooling will require us to think carefully about how we insulate our homes: Either to keep the cold out, or to keep the heat out.

Both warming and cooling will affect the way our children are educated, how we earn our living and how we travel around during our everyday lives. Poor infrastructure cannot cope with extreme heat or cold on a long term basis.

Both warming and cooling will affect aging and ailing power grids across the western world as they fail to cope with increasing demand to either heat or cool our homes, workplaces and schools.

12 Signs That Something Big Is Happening To The Earth’s Crust Under North And South America

Why are fault lines and volcanoes all over North and South America suddenly waking up? Are we moving into a time when major earthquakes and volcanic eruptions will become much more common? For the past several decades, we have been extremely fortunate to have experienced a period of extremely low seismic activity along the west coast of the United States. You see, the west coast lies right along the infamous Ring of Fire. Approximately 75 percent of all the volcanoes in the world are on the Ring of Fire, and approximately 90 percent of all global earthquakes occur along the Ring of Fire. Scientists tell us that it is inevitable that "the Big One" will hit California someday, but people have gotten very apathetic about this because things have been so quiet out there for so many years. Well, now it appears that things are changing in a big way - and not just along the California coast.

Yellowstone: 4.8 Quake and a Rising Magma Chamber

In your critique of Member of Parliament, Megan Leslie (Halifax), for having a listing for a talk by Richard Gage (a 9/11 conspiracy theorist) on her community events page you have, unfortunately, demonstrated an error in your understanding of democracy, as well as a logical fallacy.

A central premise of democracy is that (within the limits of the law) we not only allow -- but actively encourage -- freedom of expression, that is the right of people to freely voice their convictions. Upon that freedom is based the legitimacy of the electoral system, and hence the validity of representative parliamentary democracy. I'm sure that as a parliamentarian you support this principle.

Guinea battles to contain Ebola as Senegal closes its border

Guinea is racing to contain a deadly Ebola epidemic spreading from its southern forests to the capital Conakry, as neighbouring Senegal closes its border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Normally (and luckily) Ebola outbreaks occur in remote regions that keeps them isolated. In the case of Guinea, at least one patient was driven to a hospital in the capitol city. The average time between being infected and being infectious and manifesting actual symptoms averages 16 days. For that 16 days, anyone who came into contact with that patient or the people who drive him to the city are potentially vectors as they go home, shopping, go to the theater, or potentially get on a plane to another country, which by the time it lands, means another 100 potential carriers.

That being said, Ebola comes in many strains of varying lethality. The worst is the Mayinga strain which has a better than 90% lethality rate. At the other end of the spectrum is the Reston strain which does not affect humans at all (but will melt monkeys into puddles of goo). This strain appears to be running at about a 50% lethality rate, but under poor conditions of medical care.

Children's hyperactivity 'is not a real disease', says US expert - Guardian

One of the world's leading neuroscientists, whose work has been acknowledged by work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith, has suggested that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is not "a real disease".

On the eve of a visit to Britain to meet Duncan Smith and the health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, Dr Bruce D Perry told the Observer that the label of ADHD outlined a broad set of symptoms. "It is best thought of as a description. If you look at how you end up with that label, it is remarkable because any one of us at any given time would fit at least a couple of those criteria," he said.

Prescriptions for methylphenidate drugs, such as Ritalin, which are used to treat children diagnosed as suffering from ADHD, have soared by 56% in the UK, from 420,000 in 2007 to 657,000 in 2012. Such "psychostimulants" are thought to stimulate a part of the brain that changes mental and behavioural reactions.

Diet drinks linked with heart disease, death

Women who drink the most diet sodas may also be more likely to develop heart disease and even to die, according to a new study published Saturday.

Researchers found women who drank two or more diet drinks a day were 30 percent more likely to have a heart attack or other cardiovascular "event," and 50 percent more likely to die, than women who rarely touch such drinks.

The findings, being presented at a meeting of the American College of Cardiology, don't suggest that the drinks themselves are killers. But women who toss back too many diet sodas may be trying to make up for unhealthy habits, experts say.

"Our study suggests an association between higher diet drink consumption and mortality," said Dr. Ankur Vyas, a cardiovascular disease expert at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinic, who led the study.

"It's not an extreme risk," he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please get away from drinking diet sodas completely, if you can.

The major sweetener used in them is aspartame, which is absolutely lousy for your health.

What Is Aspartame Made Of? Aspartic Acid (40 percent of Aspartame) Dr. Russell L. Blaylock, a professor of neurosurgery at the Medical University of Mississippi, recently published a book thoroughly detailing the damage that is caused by the ingestion of excessive aspartic acid from aspartame. Blaylock makes use of almost 500 scientific references to show how excess free excitatory amino acids such as aspartic acid and glutamic acid (about 99 percent of monosodium glutamate or MSG is glutamic acid) in our food supply are causing serious chronic neurological disorders and a myriad of other acute symptoms. How Aspartate (and Glutamate) Cause Damage aspartateAspartate and glutamate act as neurotransmitters in the brain by facilitating the transmission of information from neuron to neuron. Too much aspartate or glutamate in the brain kills certain neurons by allowing the influx of too much calcium into the cells. This influx triggers excessive amounts of free radicals, which kill the cells. The neural cell damage that can be caused by excessive aspartate and glutamate is why they are referred to as "excitotoxins." They "excite" or stimulate the neural cells to death. Aspartic acid is an amino acid. Taken in its free form (unbound to proteins), it significantly raises the blood plasma level of aspartate and glutamate. The excess aspartate and glutamate in the blood plasma shortly after ingesting aspartame or products with free glutamic acid (glutamate precursor) leads to a high level of those neurotransmitters in certain areas of the brain. The blood brain barrier (BBB), which normally protects the brain from excess glutamate and aspartate as well as toxins, 1) is not fully developed during childhood, 2) does not fully protect all areas of the brain, 3) is damaged by numerous chronic and acute conditions, and 4) allows seepage of excess glutamate and aspartate into the brain even when intact. The excess glutamate and aspartate slowly begin to destroy neurons. The large majority (75 percent or more) of neural cells in a particular area of the brain are killed before any clinical symptoms of a chronic illness are noticed. A few of the many chronic illnesses that have been shown to be contributed to by long-term exposure to excitatory amino acid damage include: Multiple sclerosis (MS) Parkinson's disease ALS Hypoglycemia Memory loss AIDS Hormonal problems Dementia Epilepsy Brain lesions Alzheimer's disease Neuroendocrine disorders The risk to infants, children, pregnant women, the elderly and persons with certain chronic health problems from excitotoxins are great. Even the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), which usually understates problems and mimics the FDA party-line, recently stated in a review that: "It is prudent to avoid the use of dietary supplements of L-glutamic acid by pregnant women, infants, and children. The existence of evidence of potential endocrine responses, i.e., elevated cortisol and prolactin, and differential responses between males and females, would also suggest a neuroendocrine link and that supplemental L-glutamic acid should be avoided by women of childbearing age and individuals with affective disorders."

IF you are going to use a sweetener, please explore what is out there made of the stevia plant, which is absolutely natural.

Shocker: comparing deaths from medical drugs, vitamins, all US wars

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

People want to believe medical science gives us, at any given moment, the best of all possible worlds.

And of course, the best of all possible worlds must have its enemies: the quacks who sell unproven snake oil.

So let’s look at some facts.

As I’ve been documenting for years, the medical cartel has been engaged in massive criminal fraud, presenting their drugs as safe and effective across the board—when, in fact, these drugs have been killing and maiming huge numbers of people, like clockwork.

I’ve cited the review, “Is US Health Really the Best in the World?”, by Dr. Barbara Starfied (Journal of the American Medical Association, July 26, 2000), in which Starfield reveals the American medical system kills 225,000 people per year—106,000 as a direct result of pharmaceutical drugs.

US military in no shape to face the grandsons of Red Army

Years of terrorizing farmers with AK-47's and their wives and children and killing several million of them will not tune up an Army,like fighting real soldiers!
Remember how Hezbollah handed the IDF it's head back in 2006. Years of shooting Palestinian kids did not prepare them to fight a real military.
We are headed for a major military defeat and disaster!

The West is suffering from a bad case of Cold War chills.

Not only are the Western powers worried, they are discovering that they likely lack the means to stop possible Russian incursions into what was the former Soviet Empire.

They should not be at all surprised that Russia is again showing signs of life.

Most products containing 'soy protein' or 'texturized vegetable protein' are made using the toxic chemical hexane

Soy protein is a common ingredient not just in health foods but also in any food where a cheap source of protein is needed. Texturized vegetable protein, made with soy, is actually used to bulk up hamburgers in schools and prisons.

To make concentrated soy protein, however, the fat must first be removed from soy beans. This is commonly achieved by bathing the soy beans or soy flour in hexane, a byproduct of gas refining and grain processing.

Hexane is a regulated air pollutant that has been known to cause skin and nervous system damage to factory workers, but the FDA does not track its use or presence in food.

Why fructose sugar makes us sick

In 1972, British physiologist, nutritionist and physician John Yudkin summarized years of research on the dangers of eating too much sugar in his book Pure, White and Deadly. Julia Llewellyn Smith's recent article, "The man who tried to warn us about sugar," details how the sugar industry ruined Yudkin's scientific reputation, led scientists astray, and postponed action by health authorities for decades.

With sugar overconsumption now firmly established as a major cause of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, Yudkin is seen as a prophet. But in the 1970s, an opposing theory was that saturated fats were the primary cause of heart disease. Its leading proponent, University of Minnesota epidemiologist Ancel Keys, engaged in a highly personal attack on Yudkin in the scientific literature: "Yudkin has no theoretical basis or experimental evidence to support his claim… [it] is disproved by many studies superior in methodology and/or magnitude to his own."

Monsanto’s Pesticides Are Partly Responsible for the Collapse of the Bee

Developing research found that the bees were ingesting systemic pesticides that were now a part of the DNA structure of the plants that bees were pollinating. Historically speaking, when pesticides were used in the past, they were sprayed on leaves or the body of the plant, which left the pollen and bees unaffected. The pollen now, however, carries the same DNA as the rest of the plant, thus contaminating the entire food supply that the bees depend on.

A clear picture of how Monsanto’s pesticides are partly responsible for the collapse of bee colonies is becoming more evident. Tests done on bees that were exposed to Monsanto’s Mon810 corn, a genetically engineered corn crop that produces insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) showed that, once ingested by the bees, Bt binds to receptors within the gut which stop the bees from eating.

Truth suddenly dawned on me. Governments are mass doping people with a substance which is a product of the fertilizer industry, which is defined as a poison in the UK’s Poison Act of 1972. A 1995 Forsyth Research Institute study found that rats who ingested this substance exhibited ‘abnormal behavior’. A ‘Neuroscientific and Behavioral Review’ article, 1992, showed this substance inhibited rats’ memory by disrupting hippocampal activity. A conclusion was that ‘changes in behavioral function will be comparable across species, especially humans and rats’. Another conclusion was that this substance had ‘a potential for motor dysfunction, IQ deficits and/or learning disabilities in humans’.

IMF “Shock Treatment” for Ukraine: Collapse of the Standard of Living

On March 27, Ukraine’s interim coalition government announced concrete policy measures as part of its agreement with the IMF: a 50 percent increase of the retail price of gas coupled with the deregulation of the foreign exchange market.

In surrendering to the IMF, Yatsenyuk was fully aware that the proposed reforms would brutally impoverish millions of people, including those who protested in Maidan.

Family of wrong-way driver shot by state cops speaks out

They probably had to shoot this old man to save other folks lives,but it's obvious he had a stroke or some other problem before and during this incident. They have him charged with enough stuff to keep him locked up until he's 144!

George Urban by phone Monday said his elderly father Albert doesn't drink or do drugs. He says he's mostly cried since Saturday night. George said his dad doesn't seem to fully understand what happened on Saturday night.

George Urban said what happened Saturday reminds him of someone else who was passing through New Mexico: Orianna Farrell.

"Something still has to be done about the police shooting people like this, you know what I mean?" said Urban.

You see, nature has a way fixing things. It has a way of fixing the gap between what is just and unjust.
You cannot falsely justify or fabricate reasons to kill people by your police force without consequences.
You cannot cover up murders of opponents and outspoken civil rights advocates without consequences.

But now, an even more powerful force has entered into the fray thanks to the unbridled actions and failures of Albuquerque's leaders. Thanks to them, they have failed us. And now nature comes forward on March 30, 2014 to help make things right. The gap between what is just and unjust is about to brought to daylight.

After reviewing the footage of the recent Foothills police involved shooting which lead to the death of Mr. Boyd, the Eye has consulted with a technical expert on the equipment used, specifically the rifle wielded by the helmet camera equipped shooter.

Did anyone notice the level of noise from the flash bang, then the Taser shotgun? How about the bean bag gun at the end? Did you notice the extremely suppressed level of muzzle signature emitted from the AR-15 rifle used by the shooter, compared to the rest of these weapons?

Nobody pays attention to the Saudi government or the oil, wars, and terrorism it provides in exchange for U.S. largesse.

Nathan Bedford Forrest: American Warrior

Nathan Bedford Forrest, a name that struck dread to his enemies and which was revered by his men. He was arguably the greatest cavalryman during the War of Northern Aggression (or what is commonly known as America’s Civil War). There were many other notable cavalrymen, like the dashing J.E.B. Stuart, John Mosby, Wade Hampton, John Hunt Morgan and Robert E. Lee’s nephew, Fitzhugh Lee. On the Union side, George Armstrong Custer, the youngest Brigadier General, was a bold and often reckless cavalryman and John Buford, who probably saved the Union Army at Gettysburg. All were great horseman who feared no danger and did great service for their respective armies. However, Nathan Bedford Forrest stands alone.

Mosby's Rangers!

John Mosby summary: John S. Mosby was a Confederate cavalry commander. Known for his speed and elusiveness, he was given the nickname "Gray Ghost."

Since his men were not a traditional army unit, they could be called together to strike a selected target, then disperse afterward, making them hard to run to ground. This ability to strike quickly and then "disappear" gave rise to Mosby’s nickname, "Gray Ghost" (which was used as the title of a television series about him in 1957-58, starring Tod Andrews, and of a 1980s board game based on his exploits). Mosby himself, wearing a disguise, would often reconnoiter an area for a raid.

Roundup Causes Toxic Damage to Rat Brains

Previous studies demonstrate that glyphosate exposure is associated with oxidative damage and neurotoxicity. Therefore, the mechanism of glyphosate-induced neurotoxic effects needs to be determined. The aim of this study was to investigate whether Roundup® (a glyphosate-based herbicide) leads to neurotoxicity in hippocampus of immature rats following acute (30min) and chronic (pregnancy and lactation) pesticide exposure. Maternal exposure to pesticide was undertaken by treating dams orally with 1% Roundup® (0.38% glyphosate) during pregnancy and lactation (till 15-day-old).

No Need to Shoot Her Dogs, Woman Tells Police

I owned one of the first Tibetan Mastiffs in America as a youngster. The Dalai Lama of Tibet gave President Eisenhower a breeding pair of his dogs in gratitude for the CIA getting him out of Tibet. President Eisenhower gave the dogs to a buddy in Edwardsville Kansas,former US Senator Harry Darby. My step gramps was city attorney and a bud of the Pres and Senator Darby. My step dad got one of the puppies and gave it to me and my brother. He was a great dog and I loved him a lot and miss him still.

NASA uses Russian crisis to push for U.S.-run 'taxi' to space station

The goal is to free NASA from having to pay Russia to fly U.S. astronauts to the outpost. The service is costing NASA about $1.7 billion from 2012 to 2017.

In the interview on the set of a movie he is shooting in Romania, Seagal said President Vladimir Putin's "desire to protect the Russian-speaking people of Crimea, his assets, and the Russian Black Sea military base in Sevastopol … is very reasonable."

Criticizing the "idiotic" U.S. policy on Ukraine, Seagal said the American media coverage of the crisis was promoting the agenda of U.S. President Barack Obama.

Doin the Math…

According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.

16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.

So the Government wants us to pay 3 times as much, for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country…..

Judging Obamacare state by state

Earlier this month the Department of Health and Human Services announced that more than five million people had selected plans on the public insurance exchanges, a sign that the pace of enrollments is quickening as the March 31 deadline for choosing a plan approaches. But a look at the exchanges during the last month of the sign-up period shows that the enrollment picture isn’t equal across the map. “A handful of states have done great,” says Katherine Hempstead, the senior program officer for the coverage team at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a philanthropy dedicated to health care. “But there are some states that are really not getting much traction at all.”

American Lung Association EXPOSED

It’s no secret that Pfizer is losing money on it’s failed cessation products; such as Chantix & Nicotrol. As it turns out, when your product kills your customers (500 suicides and counting), you lose customers. Q3-2013 earnings were down 15%, “amid continuing safety concerns…”

Also, the Nicotrol Inhaler is losing market share to new generation electronic cigarettes and Pfizer is scrambling to reclaim that lost market. One method has been to publicly scrutinize electronic cigarettes due to “safety concerns”, which is ironic, considering that their Nicotrol Inhaler is nearly identical in form and function:

Additionally, one well known group, the American Lung Association, has been especially active in this continued debate over electronic cigarettes and has taken a hardline stance against these harm reduction products for all sorts of different reasons – regardless of relevance or scientific evidence.

Colorado House Passes Forced Vaccination Bill: One of 18 States Pushing Corporate Drugs

Parents will have little choice over whether or not to have their children vaccinated in Colorado now, due to a bipartisan measure passed by Colorado’s House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee this past Thursday. Parents who intended to claim the ‘opt out’ available in a current rendition of Colorado’s current law, due to religious or personal beliefs, will find it much more difficult to do so.

HB 14-1288, which gained traction after recent whooping cough outbreaks, will require parents to complete an online ‘education’ module and get the signature of their health care providers confirming that parents have been informed of health risks and a ‘possible detriment to the community’ if their children go unvaccinated.

Monsanto package admits seeds treated with 'poison,' advises against human consumption

Images are surfacing across the internet that illustrate the true dangers associated with genetically modified (GM) seeds, as admitted by the seeds' manufacturers. The Food Warrior Network recently posted a photo of a seed package distributed by Monsanto India Limited, for instance, that warns users not to consume the seeds or use them as food, oil or animal feed, because they are poisonous.

This shocking photo is sparking controversy among many health advocates, particularly as the biotechnology industry ramps up the propaganda machine to reassure the public that GMOs are safe and no different from natural organisms. On the contrary, GM seeds are admittedly dangerous and not safe for human consumption, which means the widespread industry claim that they are substantially identical to natural seeds is wholly false.

U.S.-Russian Astronauts: Diplomatic Tensions in Space?

While the United States and Russia traded sanctions this week in a burgeoning crisis over Crimea, astronauts from both nations rose above the discord in their sanctuary hundreds of miles from Earth.

Experts say mounting political and economic tensions between the old Cold War foes are unlikely to upset cooperation in space at the moment -- something which would be damaging to both sides.

Not that talking politics is taboo aboard the International Space Station (ISS), where Americans and Russians share close quarters, orbiting at an altitude of 248 miles (400 kilometers) over the Earth.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When humankind collaborates and cooperates, amazing things can happen, like the joint US/Russian missions on the ISS.

China, Iran, and the US suffer, episodically, from earthquakes. Can you imagine what could happen, in a positive way, if scientists from all three countries collaborated in creating cheap, quake-proof building materials, and were better able to predict quakes? We would have a more safe, stable world, and there would be far less human suffering and death than there is now when countries get plagued by earthquakes.

There is no real "Ukrainian crisis": it is simply manufactured by the US and the West through a coup d'etat in Kiev.

Student hairdresser, 17, bled to death after medics accidentally tore her artery and hospital wouldn't admit who made mistake for fear of 'putting staff under more stress'

A hospital where a young hairdresser bled to death over 15 hours has been forced to admit a catalogue of 43 errors just weeks after it tried to hide the full details to avoid 'putting staff under more stress'.

In the hours before she died the 17-year-old was so scared for her safety she texted a picture of her blood-soaked T-shirt to her boyfriend.
