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.”

How green tea helps prevent and eliminate cancer

Researchers at Seoul National University Hospital in South Korea are currently testing green tea’s ability to lower colon cancer risk. Nearly 200 patients who had benign growths removed will be given either the equivalent of nine cups of green tea in the form of an extract pill or no such treatment at all.

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.

TAXPAYERS PICK UP HEFTY COST FOR KBR’S DEFENSE IN IRAQI TOXIC EXPOSURE LAWSUITS

The saga of KBR’s contract work in Iraq during the war is proving more costly than ever for taxpayers. KBR made millions of dollars off the Iraq war by providing a variety of support services to the U.S. military. Its methods of operation also resulted in servicemen and women being exposed to pollutants and toxins. Some of those exposed have since sued KBR and to add insult to injury, U.S. taxpayers will have to cover KBR’s legal expenses, according to the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA).

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

UNIVERSITY STATISTICIAN SUING GOVERNMENT OVER ALLEGED RAMPANT VOTER FRAUD

During every election cycle, politicians, the media, and citizens alike sing the praises of democracy and the power of the “vote.” The ritual is often lauded as the pinnacle of human achievement — assurance that politicians carry out the people’s wishes. In Kansas, however, a statistician from Wichita State University has filed an open records lawsuit to investigate what she worries may be evidence of voter fraud. Tellingly, since she initially filed the suit in April, authorities have attempted to block her request for voter records.

Clinton emails contained spy satellite data on North Korean nukes

One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites.

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.

New S-500 Anti-Missile Missile Will Seal Russia Airspace

Some sectors of U.S. Think Tankland – with their cozy CIA ties – are now hedging their bets about Cold War 2.0, out of fear that they have misjudged what really happens on the geopolitical chessboard.

A shooting war is not exactly a brilliant idea. Russia’s S-500 anti-missile missiles and anti-aircraft missiles can intercept any existing ICBM, cruise missile, or aircraft. S-500s travel at 15,480 miles an hour; reach an altitude of 115 miles; travel horizontally 2,174 miles; and can intercept up to ten incoming missiles. They simply cannot be stopped by any American anti-missile system.

TIGTA: IRS Could Not Verify 40% Of $15 Billion Of Affordable Care Act Tax Credits Due To Lack Of Data From Health Insurance Exchanges

Because of incomplete and unreported data from the Exchanges, the IRS is unable to ensure that taxpayers claiming the PTC purchased insurance through an Exchange and properly reconciled APTCs received. However, the IRS has developed processes to identify erroneous PTC claims. Our review of these processes identified that 79 of the 80 reject code conditions and 16 of the 20 PTC error codes were working as intended. Computer programming errors resulted in the reject and PTC error codes not always identifying tax returns with the particular error condition. The IRS plans to make programming corrections.

Back to school vaccine hysteria culminates in hunt for unvaccinated kids

Due to increased mandatory vaccination legislation, parents are being politely threatened by the corporate-sponsored press, the CDC and the school systems that they had better get jabs for their children. In many cases, such as in California, it’s the law. In cases where it’s not completely mandatory, veiled threats and social pressure to submit have reached an ominous fever-pitch.While the media can offer ostensible friendliness in passive aggressive threats to “get with the vaccine program” as it can rest on the buttress of law, it has not yet dispensed with extraordinary hysteria, authoritarian peer pressure and even targeting children in public shaming rituals.

The war waged by political reactionaries and pro-life advocates against Planned Parenthood in the United States is widely known. I wrote about it a couple of weeks ago, and the undercover videos attempting to show the organization in a bad light are only the latest in a longstanding campaign. Planned Parenthood, which provides health care to millions of American women, has been under threat for years. It has always fought back.

Too big to Investigate: Vaccine industry now enjoying total immunity from all laws due to intimidated, corrupt lawmakers

November 2016, when American voters will once again cast their ballot for president, is still a long way off. However, judging by the rising popularity of the early frontrunners – “Independent” socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders on the Left and billionaire businessman Donald Trump, a non-politician if there ever was one, on the Right – one thing is apparent to this political scientist: an increasing number of people are fed up with “the Establishment” of both major parties.

Chipotle Customer Files Class-Action Lawsuit Over Restaurant’s Alleged GMO Claims

A law firm in San Francisco has filed a class-action lawsuit against Chipotle on behalf of a consumer.

The Psychology of Projection in Conflict

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.

Cannabis oil cures man's cancer after he was given 18 months to live: why real cancer cures are always outlawed

A 33-year-old father from the U.K. is completely cancer-free, but not because of chemotherapy or radiation. 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.

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.

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.”

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

U.S. Police Routinely Travel to Israel to Learn Methods of Brutality and Repression

Political commentator John Miranda recently stated that police brutality is directly linked to the training some officers receive in Israel.

“As for the increase in police brutality within the United States, I think this definitely can be pointed towards the Israeli training that the Department of Homeland Security is giving all of American police officers.

Some police officers are actually being flown to Israel for the training, not all of them but some, and then those that are flown to Israel, they come back home and they train the head officers in the training that they’ve gotten in Israel.

All these incidents, it is not just happening to African Americans. Police are literally being brutal with all Americans.”

Growing Marijuana Strains that Treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

By Daniel Dharma

In our ongoing series on using marijuana to treat PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), we’ve explained what PTSD is, its symptoms, and that marijuana is being used to treat PTSD.

One of the biggest questions I keep getting asked is “which marijuana strains best treat PTSD?”

You’ll want to read all the other articles in this series to help answer that question, so I’ll put links to those articles at the end of this article.

In those past articles, I talked about generic kinds of marijuana that help with PTSD, and why they help.

Long exposure to tiny amounts of Monsanto’s Roundup may damage liver, kidneys – study

In the new two-year study, which extended the findings from one conducted in 2012, the team added tiny amounts of Roundup to water that was given to rats in doses much smaller than allowed in US drinking water.

Scientists say that some of the rats experienced “25 percent body weight loss, presence of tumors over 25 percent bodyweight, hemorrhagic bleeding, or prostration.”

...

The study’s conclusions indicate that there is an association between wide-scale alterations in liver and kidney gene expression and the consumption of small quantities of Roundup, even at admissible glyphosate-equivalent concentrations. As the dose used is “environmentally relevant in terms of human, domesticated animals and wildlife levels of exposure,” the results potentially have significant health implications for animal and human populations, the study warned.

Felony Marijuana Charges Dismissed Against 94 Year Old War Veteran In Charlotte North Carolina

The charges had been dismissed! From the Law Office of Christopher Connelly:

Attorney Chris Connelly was honored to represent Douglas Ponischil in this marijuana felony case and secure a dismissal. Mr. Ponischil is a 94 yo WWII combat veteran who survived a U Boat attack that left him in the dangerous waters of the Caribbean for several days until rescue.

He had never had any adverse contact with the law until March of 2015 when police raided his house and arrested him, accusing him of felony possession of marijuana. This arrest ocurred several weeks after marijuana had been mailed to his home on someone else’s behalf. Instead of investigating whether this 94 year old vet was perhaps being taken advantage of by others, law enforcement arrested him and put him in jail.

Planned Parenthood admits it manipulates rules on fetal organ sales to maximize profit

But she also said that “adjustments that facilitate fetal tissue donations rarely occur at our few clinics that offer women this service,” prompting David Daleiden of the pro-life Center for Medical Progress to declare that she had proved the point of his group’s investigation — that “adjustments occur.”

Several of the videos showed Planned Parenthood representatives haggling over prices — and in one case joking about wanting a Lamborghini — with people they thought represented biotech firm purchasers.

YES – ANIMALS SUFFER FROM GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOODS, SAYS PRIMATOLOGIST JANE GOODALL

The Primatologist warned consumers at a National Press Club news conference to take heed when animals respond poorly to GMO diets. She also urged governments to impose stronger safeguards on genetically modified organisms.
Goodall warned:

“Animals tell us something. If the animals have suffered this way [from GMOs], potentially for us, let’s listen to what they’re telling us. Let’s take heed.”
Goodall has joined forces with attorney Steven Druker in a book he penned to disclose the dangers of GM organisms on animals. Since much of the GM soy and corn grown in the US ends up in animal feed, she urges us to notice what happens to the animals once they’ve consumed a biotech-altered diet.

MICROSCOPIC 3D-PRINTED “SMART” FISH NANOBOTS TO SWIM IN BLOODSTREAM & REMOVE TOXINS

A newly-developed technology at the University of California- San Diego called microfish will one day allow for tiny 3D-printed “smart” microbots to travel through a person’s bloodstream and deliver drugs to specific places in the body, as well as sense and remove toxins.

The high-tech fish are extremely small, smaller than the width of a human hair. The revolutionary devices are extremely easy to create, but are remarkably high tech, with the ability to act as both a toxin sensing and detoxifying robot, according to researchers at UC-San Diego.

“We have developed an entirely new method to engineer nature-inspired microscopic swimmers that have complex geometric structures and are smaller than the width of a human hair. With this method, we can easily integrate different functions inside these tiny robotic swimmers for a broad spectrum of applications,” said the co-first author Wei Zhu, a nanoengineering Ph.D. student at UC San Diego.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this guy is doing this as a doctoral student, imagine what he will be doing when he finishes his last dissertation, and completes grad school!

WAY TO GO, WEI ZHU! Major congrats on this work! :-)

"Stay quiet about what you saw"

New Orleans firemen riding out the storm high up in an office building saw levees collapse dooming the city.

They were ordered not to tell what they saw when they appeared before a Congressional committee hearing about the devastation.

Why not?

The epically corrupt US Army Corps of Engineers was trying, unsuccessfully it eventually turned out, to find the basic fact: Their design, construction and maintenance was responsible for the deaths of thousands of people (it you count the people who died after the storm from the shock and trauma) and the near obliteration of a great American city. - See more at: http://www.brasschecktv.com/videos/new-orleans-1/stay-quiet-about-what...

Public Urged To Prepare For Hurricanes Ignacio, Jimena

As a pair of hurricanes – Ignacio and Jimena – head towards the Hawaiian Islands, state officials are urging the public to prepare over the weekend.

Hurricane Ignacio is the closer of the two at 785 miles east southeast of Hilo. Ignacio is moving toward the northwest near 8 mph, and this motion is expected to continue for the next couple of days. In a media release issued by the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency, officials say the current track remains “highly uncertain, however, all islands are within the cone of uncertainty so should prepare for impact early next week.”

Hurricane Jimena Could Become a Category 5 in the Eastern Pacific

Jimena strengthened into a Category 4 hurricane early Saturday morning.

Hurricane Jimena is located over 1,200 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California.

Further intensification is possible and Jimena could become a Category 5 hurricane sometime this weekend.

For now, this system is no threat to land the next five days as it tracks westward behind Ignacio.

It's far too early to know if this system may eventually become a threat to Hawaii. Check back for updates.

Drones have been turning up in strange places lately.

Then, in May, a drone showed up in Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids, Michigan and literally rained down money from the heavens.

Bad medicine is killing Americans and making Big Pharma richer than ever

As pharmaceutical companies are rolling out new medications complete with glossy advertising campaigns more rapidly than ever before, the temptation for mainstream American medical practitioners to treat symptoms with pills rather than seeking legitimate cures for ills is increasing. To understand why there are so many confused doctors and over-medicated patients, it could help to follow the money.

Officer fires weapon after crash, shoots baby in toe

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A police officer fired shots after his motorcycle was rammed Friday, and a baby was struck in the toe by a bullet from the officer's service weapon.

Two men are in custody and two infants were involved in the incident. No one in the suspect vehicle fired at the officer.

The motorcycle officer attempted to stop a red Dodge SUV with tinted windows for speeding at Highway 71 and 31st Street. The vehicle sped off, and the officer did not pursue the vehicle.

About 30 minutes later, the same officer received information that led him to find the SUV in the 5200 block of Wabash Avenue, police said.

NASA selects New Horizons’ next destination after Pluto

After flying by Pluto on July 14th, NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has a new destination. The mission team has selected another object in the Kuiper Belt — the region of icy bodies that orbits the edge of the Solar System — for the probe to explore next.

The spacecraft's new potential target is called 2014 MU69; it's a much smaller object than Pluto and orbits the Sun nearly 1 billion miles beyond the dwarf planet. 2014 MU69 is an ideal candidate for further exploration, because it will cost less fuel to reach than other Kuiper Belt objects (KBOs), said New Horizons principal investigator Alan Stern, in a statement. Using less fuel to get to the object means more will be available to power the probe’s data-gathering instruments. The images and information gathered by New Horizons will give scientists a much better understanding of the worlds at the fringes of our Solar System.

Russia’s Soyuz TMA-16M spaceship successfully re-docked to another ISS module

The crew of the Russian Soyuz TMA-16M spaceship has successfully re-docked the spacecraft from the Poisk module of the International Space Station (ISS) to the Zvezda module, Russia's Mission Control Center said on Friday.
The re-docking operation was carried out with the assistance of specialists from the Mission Control Center near Moscow and broadcast on the website of Russia's Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos).
"The Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft was re-docked from the docking port of the Poisk small research module to the docking port of the Zvezda service module by the crew comprising Gennady Padalka, Mikhail Korniyenko and Scott Kelly in the manual mode," Mission Control said.

Sorry creationists — your favorite cave painting meme does not prove humans and dinosaurs co-existed

An ancient cave painting by Native Americans in Utah was celebrated by “Young Earth” creationists, who believe the planet is less than 10,000 years old, because the 1,000-year old picture looks, at face value, like a winged pterodactyl dinosaur.

But using new technology, scientists have debunked the claim that the picture is proof dinosaurs were living alongside humans 1,000 years ago. Using two techniques, digital photographic enhancement and X-Ray fluorescence, scientists uploaded a photograph of the cave painting into a program that highlights original pigments and removes those added later, Vocativ reports.

The result? The painting is not a pterodactyl. It appears to depict humans, small animals and a snake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looking at the original painting, I don't even see how they thought there was a pterodactyl in there in the first place!

An investigation into claims made in top psychology journals has revealed that around two thirds of original findings can't be reproduced.

The study was launched by psychologists in the US in response to growing concerns over the reliability of research.

And these bleak results call into question the validity of some scientific findings upon which medical advice is based.

Police Claim Teen Ran After they Shot Him in the Back, But the Autopsy Shows that’s Impossible

Original police reports made no mention of where Ball-Bey was hit when he was allegedly turning to shoot at officers.
Last week, however, when the autopsy report was released, it showed that Ball-Bey was shot in the back. The bullet entered his back and exited through his heart.

Immediately after this release of information, police Chief Sam Dotson made the following statement:
“Just because he was shot in the back, doesn’t mean he was running away. It could be. And I’m not saying that it doesn’t mean that. I just don’t know yet.”Despite Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Graham finding that Ball-Bey’s spinal cord was severed from the bullet last week, this information was not released to the media until now.
The severing of Ball-Bey’s spinal cord is an essential component in this case, which was conveniently left out. If the bullet cut his spinal cord in half, how was it that Ball-Bey ran from the back yard, where he allegedly dropped the gun, al the way to the front yard?

The foods that are approved for Roundup application and/or another pesticide just prior to harvest are as follows:

Wheat
Cotton (cottonseed oil)
Alfalfa
Oats
Sugar cane
Beans
Mustard
Oilseed rape
Rye/Triticale

Rosetta probe spots Comet 67P being buzzed by boulder

The rock passed by on July 30th and as the .GIF below shows it headed off into space at decent speed.

The images below were captured by Rosetta's OSIRIS narrow-angle camera, which only managed to get three frames of the event.

The ESA's name for the .GIF “Boulder flying by comet” is actually quite eloquent, because the agency has advanced no theories about the object. The agency says it was between one and fifty metres in size and there's therefore no word on whether this is a piece of 67/P that's recently broken off or a random space rock that just happened to zip past the comet.
