Whooping cough outbreak at Massachusetts high school affected only vaccinated students

Unvaccinated children are supposedly the cause, according to state health officials, of a recent whooping cough outbreak that occurred in the posh Cape Cod area of Massachusetts. But as reported by CBS Boston, all of the children affected by the outbreak were already vaccinated, proving once again that vaccines don't really work.

Some 15 children at Falmouth High School reportedly came down with the respiratory illness, which also goes by the name pertussis, sparking a wave of panic about a corresponding increase in vaccine exemptions. But as usual, nobody affected by the outbreak was unvaccinated, and no matter how hard the media tries to spin the issue, those who were vaccinated were not protected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Indeed the inescapable conclusion is that the vaccine CAUSED the illness!

Hard Times in a Boom Town: Pennsylvanians Describe Costs of Fracking

Expectations ran high when the boom first began. In 2010, 60 Minutes introduced a new word to the national media – “shale-ionaires,” or landowners who made millions simply by leasing their land for drilling.

“Once a well is built and producing, royalty checks start popping up in the mailbox,” explained 60 Minutes anchor Leslye Stahl. “It can last years and add up to many more millions.”

But even in the most productive shale play in the country, these early hopes have often been dashed, with some landowners reporting that leasing has already wound up costing them money.

Sierra Leone Baffled by Doctors' Ebola Deaths

Sierra Leone’s chief medical officer has said he is baffled by the deaths of three doctors from Ebola over a three-day period.

Dr. Brima Kargbo said a survey conducted jointly with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) found that 70 percent of infections did not come from either the country’s Ebola holding centers or treatment facilities.

Kargbo said Dr. Aiah Solomon Konoyeima died Saturday, becoming the 10th Sierra Leonean physician to die of the virus.

He said Konoyeima was the third doctor to die from Ebola since Friday.

New Study Claims US Shale Gas Quantities Grossly Exaggerated

US government estimates of the amount of natural gas that can be extracted by fracking may be far too optimistic, according to a new study by the University of Texas (UT) at Austin.

In 2013, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) issued a report saying that, according to its analysis, shale wells, which require fracking to release their gas, would be productive at current levels for “over 30 years,” that is, at least until 2040.

Ebola Czar Ron Klain to Return to Private Sector

After less than six months on the job, Ron Klain, the former White House adviser appointed by President Barack Obama to handle the nation's response to the threat of Ebola, will return to his private sector job in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Klain's mission was to get Ebola out of the media ahead of the mid-term elections. He succeeded. Seen any Ebola coverage in the corporate media lately, like the fact that there are currently 1400 patients under Ebola watch in the US?

When Big pharma has their new whiz-bang vaccines and treatments ready to sell next spring, they will WANT Ebola all over the news and that is why Klain is no longer needed.

The Queen of England Deals Extensively in $17 Trillion Depleted Uranium Trade

Uranium can be mined for some medical purposes and to make electricity, but its main purpose was and is to fuel nuclear warfare against the world. Just six mines provide 85 percent of the world’s uranium and guess who owns the mineral rights to that land?

It may be surprising to realize it is none other than the Queen of England.

Vaccines to be made from human cancer tumors

Unbelievably, the method of producing vaccines using cells that are derived directly from human cancer tumors has been approved even though the vaccines may induce cancer in recipients. This method is cheaper and faster than breeding animals for the culture media - and human cancer tumors are readily available.

Sierra Leone Seeing 80-100 New Ebola Cases Daily

Sierra Leone said Friday that between 80 and 100 new cases of Ebola are being reported every day and the country now hardest-hit by the deadly virus desperately needs over 1,000 beds to treat victims.

Sierra Leone's Finance Minister Kaifalah Marah painted a grim picture to the U.N. Economic and Social Council Friday of the challenges facing his West African nation which failed to meet a World Health Organization interim goal of isolating 70 percent of Ebola patients and safely burying 70 percent of victims by Dec. 1.

GMO: the great land mob of Hawaii

I’m going to describe a few tentacles. There are more. There are always more. But these are important.

Why am I bothering? Because you’ll get some idea of the forces arrayed against the people of Hawaii, who have passed measures to limit GMOs and pesticides on Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island, only to see their votes nullified in two court judgments and temporarily blocked in the third case, Maui, pending a judge’s decision.

Flu Shot Fail: Vaccine Chiefs Forced to Admit it Won’t Work

Any decent, honest physician will tell you that the the seasonal Flu mutates like mad, and that there are many dozens of different strains making people sick, and when Big Pharma rolls out its annual Flu vaccine – it simply cannot protest you against most of these strains floating around.

“There’s a little bit of a guessing game each year. Sometimes it’s not a good match,” admits Dr. Alicia Fry, a physician with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention’s Influenza Division.

That’s right – it’s one big guessing game.

But that’s not the worst of it – the vaccine contain some ingredients which could cause health damage…

Illegal pro-GMO observers accused of disrupting Oregon labeling law vote count

Amid a recount of Oregon’s ballot initiative over labeling of genetically-modified foods, the pro-agribusiness contingent, known as the “No on 92 Coalition,” tried to illegally place out-of-state election observers in at least four counties, opponents say.

The statewide vote on Measure 92 - which, if passed, would demand genetically-engineered ingredients to be labeled as such - is subject to a hand recount given the original, computerized tally showed that the initiative failed by just 812 votes, within the mandatory-recount margin. The recount began on Tuesday and will continue through Dec. 9.

The campaign over Measure 92 was the most expensive in the state’s history, as powerful biotechnology firms like Monsanto and DuPont pumped about $21 million against the initiative, while supporters culled about $9 million.

37 Million Bees Found Dead In Ontario, Canada After Planting Large GMO Corn Field

Large fields in Ontario, Canada, were planted with GMO corn and millions of dead bees were the result of that action. To be more precise, Dave Schuit, a local bee keeper in Elmwood, lost about 37 million bees, or about 600 hives, which affected his production greatly.

“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit explained.

CDC issues flu vaccine apology: this year's vaccine doesn't work!

For the first time we can remember, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are going on the record, saying the flu vaccine won't work this year. The warning comes just before the busiest part of flu season, in January and February. Unfortunately, there won't be any refund for any of the patients or insurance companies who spent money on flu shots earlier this fall.

NASA postpones test launch of Orion spacecraft due to valve problem

The Orion spacecraft is still to blast off for its first test flight from Cape Canaveral - this time on Friday. NASA's replacement for the retired Shuttle, the Orion may one day take humans to an asteroid or even Mars.

The spacecraft will lift off aboard a Delta IV heavy rocket and will orbit the earth twice before splashing down in the Pacific. The flight, which is to test Orion's performance, will be unmanned. However, the the spacecraft will be loaded with 1,000 sensors to record and measure all aspects of the flight.

Nearly four in 10 Californians say the state's health exchange isn't working well as the second open enrollment gets underway, a new survey shows.

The results from the Public Policy Institute of California survey may reflect persistent service problems experienced by some consumers as well as continued partisan opposition to the federal overhaul.

GMOs Causing Deadly Bacteria to Flourish in Digestive System

We know that numerous medications interfere with your gut health, but what’s depleting your body’s ‘good’ bacteria may go even further. Researchers have found that a deadly strain of bacteria created by the biotech industry is likely growing in your digestive system. As many experts have suspected, GM foods tainted with the omnipresent agrochemical, Roundup, are causing widespread changes in the microbiome of those who consume them.

ObamaCare incentivizes hiring amnestied illegals to the tune of $3000 each

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about ObamaCare - aside from the fact that it’s an abject disaster in terms of meeting its stated goals - it’s that the unintended consequences of its passage just keep piling up. Sure, conservatives warned of the chaos that would stem from the Dems’ “signature legislation,” but even those of us who were sounding the alarm are amazed at how it keeps managing to fail in new, exciting, ways.

Today we’re learning that the law actually incentivizes corporations to hire the millions of illegals who are currently enjoying Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty order - instead of hiring actual, legal, U.S. citizens. In fact, under the ACA, companies who hire an amnestied illegal can dodge a $3,000 penalty that they would have had to pay if they’d hired a citizen.

Breastfed, Homebirthed Babies Taken Away From Parents For Not Using Hospital

All three of their babies have been taken away from them and placed in the care of strangers. Levi was 10 months old when his mother, local singer and songwriter Erica May Rengo, gave birth to his twin brother and sister, at their home in Bellingham, Washington.

“Our birth was glorious,” she said, and the twins were reportedly healthy, full-term babies, who had no problem quickly figuring out how to breastfeed. The little family was overjoyed until CPS stepped in to “help.”

It is another medical kidnapping according to the parents. The Rengos have chosen a wholesome, holistic lifestyle, based in their Christian faith. But CPS has stepped in to override the parents’ decisions. Now Erica and Cleave are living what they call a nightmare, separated from their children for reasons that don’t make any sense at all to them.

15,000 robots usher in Amazon's Cyber Monday

An army of 15,000 robots is ready to roll as Amazon.com prepares for Cyber Monday, its biggest order day of the year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That means there are 15,000 fewer workers with the money to buy whatever Amazon (or anyone else) is trying to sell.

The critical missing component of our economy is that once the money gets collected at the top, there needs to be a way to recirculate it back down to the workers at the bottom, to feed back into the economy to hold up that financial pyramid.

Cold Fusion and Beyond - Dr. Eugene Mallove

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When this interview was filmed in October 2000, Dr. Eugene Mallove was Editor-In-Chief of the magazine, Infinite Energy and Director of the New Energy Research Laboratory in New Hampshire. "He held two MIT degrees in Aeronautical-Astronautical Engineering and a Harvard Doctorate in Environmental Health Sciences (Air Pollution Control Engineering). He had broad experience in high- technology engineering at companies including Hughes Research Labs, TASC (The Analytic Science Corporation) and MIT Lincoln Laboratory. "Dr. Mallove was the Chief Science Writer at MIT when the cold fusion story broke in March 1989, and he resigned in 1991 after his requested investigation into the altered cold fusion data at MIT (which helped to discredit the whole subject) was not properly done." Mallove's book, 'Fire from Ice' detailed the 1989 report of table- top cold fusion from Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann at the University of Utah. Among other things, the book claims that the team did produce "greater-than-unity" output energy in an experiment successfully replicated on several occasions, but that the results were suppressed through an organized campaign of ridicule from mainstream physicists, including some at his own alma mater, MIT.

Peru Forcibly Sterilized 300,000 Poor Women in the '90s. Now They Could Decide the Country's Future.

Created as a result of collaboration between the University of Bristol and London-based Chaka Studio, the Quipu project relays the story of a recent and very dark moment in Peruvian history. As many as 300,000 women in rural areas of Peru were possibly hoodwinked into being sterilized during the mid-to-late 1990s, all in the name of bringing an end to poverty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Population does not cause poverty, private-central banks do. Reduce the human population to 10 million but keep private central banks and still the vast majority of those 10 million will live in poverty. What is being culled from the human herd is not the excess population, but merely that segment of the population from whom the bankers can no longer reap huge profits!

DIY Exoplanet Detector Using a DSLR

Your DSLR can do much more than just take a few nice portraits or the occasional vacation photos – with some DIY magic you can actually turn it into a device which can detect planets outside our solar system – something that 20 years ago was impossible even with the most sophisticated telescopes.

So how can you achieve this? David Schneider who you can see in the video above was able to use his Canon EOS Rebel XS (a.k.a Canon 1000D) camera. With old manual-focus 300mm Nikon telephoto lens he got from eBay for under a $100 with a $17 adapter

After he had his camera setup Schneider needed a way to track stars in a very precise way. There are of course very expensive options that you can buy, However as a DIY enthusiast he decided to create something on his own based on a device called a barn door tracker (a relatively simple device that will allow you to shoot longer exposures and track the stars to compensate for the Earth’s rotation).

A Judge trying to save Dow and Monsanto and their toxic GMO/pesticide experiments is one thing; but there is a much bigger industry in Hawaii:

Tourism.

I’m sure Judge Barry Kurren and his wife, Faye, know some of the heavy hitters in that billion-dollar business.

Well, look at it this way: If the Judge rules against the people of Maui, who just voted to stop Dow and Monsanto…

And if tourists begin to realize how many Dow/ Monsanto experimental toxic pesticides continue floating around the Islands…

And if they book their vacations elsewhere…

Eyes will turn. Glances will become accusing stares.

Fireball Havoc

NASA just released a view of a fireball that exploded over Tuscaloosa, Ala., and it’s pretty cool. The agency captured the video with its ground-based All Sky Cameras network. It’s the second fireball of the month spotted over the U.S.

On Nov. 8, a fireball exploded early in the morning over San Antonio, inspiring hundreds to call in. The latest meteor also netted in a flurry of phone calls.

Here’s what NASA said about the latest:

A bright fireball occurred at 8:18 pm CST, Nov. 20, just southwest of Tuscaloosa, Alabama and was detected by NASA All Sky Cameras. The fireball traveled at 67,000 miles per hour and appears to have broken apart at an altitude of 27 miles. It was as bright as the full moon, about 14 inches in diameter and weighed about 120 pounds.

The fireball was not part of the Leonid meteor shower. At this time, we do not believe any meteorites were produced.

Living under the sea: Japanese visionaries unveil underwater city plan

Will people ever live in underwater cities? Japanese construction firm says it is possible by 2030. The visionaries revealed a $25 billion deep-sea eco-city plan called Ocean Spiral for 5,000 people that will produce energy from sea resources.

Many have pondered the idea of living under the sea while sci-fi film directors such as George Lucas tempted our imagination with stunning images of underwater cities. Such was the Gungan city consisting of a mass of hydrostatic bubbles shown in the first part of the “Star wars” epic space film series.

Now a Japanese construction firm Shimizu Corp. says that building an underwater residential area is not a fantasy and aims to build one by 2030 – in just 15 years.

Lymph node surgery for breast cancer has no benefit

A recent study with lasting affect on the guardians of the status quo in breast cancer care and treatment has found that lymph node surgery for women provides no benefit. In women who had early breast cancer which had spread to their lymph nodes, removing them does not improve their survival rate or prevent the further spreading of cancer. Unfortunately, this painful and lucrative procedure of removing lymph nodes has long been routine for breast cancer patients.

Feds crack down on phony Ebola cures

Would you buy an Ebola cure over the Internet?

At least three companies hope so. Internet retailers Bodyhealth.com, Ebola-C and LifeSilver imply on their web sites, Facebook pages or Twitter accounts that their products will help ward off or mitigate the Ebola virus.

This week, federal regulators are cracking down.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Federal Trade Commission sent warning letters Tuesday and Wednesday to the three companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last summer, the World Health Organization stated that unproven cures could be tried during the Ebola crisis. But the US Government, the same US Government that just crippled health care in general for the sake of corporate profits with Obamacare, is once again protecting corporate profits by shutting down anyone but the giant pharmaceutical corporations, yet every Ebola treatment offered by the big pharmaceutical companies remains unproven, and some have turned out to be totally ineffective.

Remember, this is the same government that mandated everyone take a vaccine for Swine Flu back in 1976 which killed fifty times more people than the actual flu did. Are you willing to bet your life that they are right this time? I am not.

One Reader's Shocked Response Upon Learning His Health Insurance Cost Just Doubled

After spending months trying to register for the ACA in late 2013 and early 2014 my kids got put on our state's insurance (at "no cost") and my wife and I bagged an ACA policy at a subsidized cost of $281 per month with a total out of pocket of about $6500 (just for the two of us).

Attached is the ACA notification of next year's price increase. As you can see the cost goes from $281 to $555, a monthly increase of $274, a percentage increase of 97%.

Basically we are now paying the same amount for the two of us that we paid for all four of us one year ago.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel billed $950K US after giving birth in U.S.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel gave birth nine weeks early while on holiday in Hawaii in November 2013. Her baby daughter had to be hospitalized.

"My water broke two days into our holiday," Huculak-Kimmel said. "I spent six weeks on bed rest and then baby Reece was delivered by emergency C-section on December 10th."

Reece had to stay in the hospital for just over two months. Huculak-Kimmel thought that her insurance would cover the almost $1 million US bill.

In the end, Blue Cross denied payment. In a letter to the family, a Blue Cross worker wrote, "We are unable to provide coverage for any medical expenses incurred for Ms. Huculak's baby" and "please note that Ms. Huculak's travel policy expired on Nov. 9, 2013."

Petitioning Jim Benson - Stop Fracking next to El Paso, Texas

Fracking endangers the health, safety and welfare of people, pollutes the air and ground, results in rising crime and social and medical costs, utterly destroys ecosystems and permanently contaminates underground aquifers with toxic compounds and consumes billions of gallons of water. Yet, just a few minutes away from the city limits of El Paso, Texas a major metropolitan area of 675,000 people, and a few miles from the farming community of Dell City, Texas, the University of Texas System has leased over a hundred thousand acres to Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. for the sole purpose of fracking. Torchlight Energy says that it may drill up to as many as 2500 wells on this area immediately east of El Paso called the Diablo Plateau which, with the Otero Mesa in New Mexico, forms a rich ecosystem of plants and animals. Torchlight Energy Resources must not drill there. The University of Texas Lands System must not allow them.

Have scientists finally found the 'gay gene'? Major new study of 800 brothers backs claims sexuality is in our genes

A large study of gay brothers has reignited the debate over whether a 'gay gene' exists - and adds to evidence that genes influence men's chances of being homosexual.

Some scientists believe several genes might affect sexual orientation.

Researchers who led the new study of nearly 800 gay brothers say their results bolster previous evidence pointing to genes on the X chromosome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it amazing how the buy-bull bangers continue to demonize gays as sinful, especially when you consider that Jesus spent all his time with other men (except his wife Mary Magdalene). :)

Beyond that, I think all the people screaming about population control need to understand that humans have a built-in population-limiting mechanism; homosexuality! If you study history it quickly becomes apparent that the per-capita occurrence of homosexuality increases during times of social stress. The gays not only have as much right to be here as anyone else, but in the long run they are essential to the long term survival of the human race.

Comet lander: Camera sees Philae's hairy landing

High-resolution pictures have now been released of the Philae probe in the act of landing on Comet 67P last Wednesday.

They were acquired by the Narrow Angle Camera on the Rosetta satellite, which had dropped the little robot towards the surface of the "ice mountain".

The images are presented as a mosaic covering the half-hour or so around the "first touchdown" - the probe then bounced to a stop about 1km away.

Philae lost battery power on Saturday and is no longer talking with Earth.

Maui's GMO Ban Blocked By Federal Judge

A federal judge says Maui County may not implement a new law banning the cultivation of genetically modified organisms until he can consider arguments in a lawsuit against the measure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the GMO planters will just go on planting and by the time the judge finally hears the lawsuit it will be too late. Maui will be fully contaminated by these dangerous plants. The entire case against the ban is that the GMO companies will suffer harm. The exact same argument could be made about companies that dump toxic and nuclear waste; banning them from dumping their "product" onto Hawaii harms them financially. Does that mean we have to let them go on doing it?

Obamacare Facebook page comments mostly from small group of supporters

Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.

However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.

Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team. Many of those profiles belong to just one person who created multiple aliases or personas to widen her influence and multiply her voice.

Monsanto, Dow Chemical File Lawsuit to Destroy Maui County's GMO Ban

Lawsuit comes just one day after supporters of GMO planting ban in Hawaii filed a motion of their own with local courts seeking "transparency and proper implementation" of the moratorium approved by voters on Election Day.

Though not unexpected, the suit exposes the threat posed to the agrochemical giants when local people rise up in opposition to the destructive nature of their business model.

Alongside other plaintiffs, two of the world's most powerful agrochemical companies, Monsanto and Dow Chemical, filed suit against Maui County in Hawaii on Thursday, less than two weeks after voters there approved a moratorium on the planting and cultivation of genetically-modified crops within the boundaries of their communities.

New Study: Monsanto’s #1 Herbicide Directly Linked to Chronic Disease Spike

A new correlation study published in the Journal of Organic Systems has linked glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup, to an enormous increase in chronic diseases across the United States.

Supporting countless studies before it, this new report is a detailed analysis proving an undeniable link between glyphosate-based herbicides and the rates of chronic disease all over the country.

Dr. Nancy Swanson and the President of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), Andre Leu, led the research team which proved – once again – that glyphosate and Roundup are lethal, even in small amounts.

The chemical is prevalently used on crops across the nation and world. Friends of the Earth Europe, says that more than 650,000 tonnes of glyphosate products were used over five years ago, with the amount being used increasing each year.

How Big Oil Plans to Win Ugly in New York

A PR firm well known for its hardball tactics in defense of Big Tobacco will deliver the keynote address at tonight’s Independent Oil and Gas Association of New York’s (IOGA-NY) annual conference in Buffalo. The same talk titled, “Big Green Radicals: Exposing Environmental Groups,” was presented at the Western Energy Alliance annual meeting in Colorado this summer. Richard Berman, president of the consulting firm Berman and Company, told the audience of oil and gas executives that they were engaged in “an endless war,” and warned that, “You can either win ugly or lose pretty.”

An anti-fracking rally in front of the New York State Assembly in Albany in 2013. Berman and Company’s strategy fails to recognize that long before celebrities were touring gas fields, local landowners, farmers, and activists had already started asking questions about the merits of fracking.

Is L.A. Backtracking on its Fracking Ban?

In February the City Council made headlines when it voted to take a first step toward a ban on fracking within Los Angeles municipal limits.

The body voted unanimously to have city staffers draft the fine print of a law that would outlaw hydraulic oil and gas extraction, a.k.a. fracking, on L.A. turf. Environmentalists say the process, which pushes pressurized liquid into rock formations to squeeze out fossil fuels, could contaminate drinking water supplies and even trigger earthquakes.

Instead of getting its ordinance, however, the council was recently given a report by the Department of City Planning. It says a fracking ban will not be that easy and suggests that more time is needed. At least one city leader is fuming.

Westside Councilman Mike Bonin told us he was "frustrated" that, nearly nine months later, the council still doesn't have a law to vote on:

Texas Oil Regulator Says It Will Not Honor Town’s Vote To Ban Fracking

On election day, the town of Denton, Texas, voted by a wide margin to ban fracking within the city limits. Two days later, the chairwoman of Texas’ oil and gas regulator said she would not honor the ban.

Texas Railroad Commission Chairwoman Christi Craddick told the Dallas Morning News that she would continue giving permits to oil and gas companies seeking to frack in Denton. Craddick asserted she could override the ban because Denton does not have authority over drilling activity in the state.

“It’s my job to give permits, not Denton’s,” Craddick said. “We’re going to continue permitting up there because that’s my job.”

Fracking — the process of injecting water, sand and chemicals underground to extract oil and gas from shale formations — has a long history in Denton, one of the most heavily-fracked towns in Texas. At the same time, residents have complained of poor air quality, disruptive noise in residential areas, and an increase in low-magnitude earthquakes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Craddick may well be truly bought and paid for by the oil industry, and the health of the people of Denton means absolutely nothing to her.

ALERT: Certified Organic Food Grown in U.S. Found Contaminated with Glyphosate Herbicide

With over 80% of the U.S. food supply now reportedly contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate, many people are turning to USDA certified organic products to avoid this toxic chemical. Current USDA NOP (National Organic Program) standards do not allow the use of the herbicide glyphosate on organic crops.

However, a new investigation by Tropical Traditions has revealed that the U.S. organic grain market is contaminated with glyphosate.

Philae lander sends back first ever image from comet surface

Scientists re-established communications with Philae on Thursday after an anxious overnight wait while its mothership Rosetta, which relays the signals to Earth, dipped below the comet’s horizon.

Magnetic field data from Philae’s ROMAP instrument analysed overnight revealed three ‘landings’. The first was almost exactly on the expected arrival time of 15:33 GMT. But the anchoring harpoons did not fire and Philae rebounded.

In the weak gravity of the comet it took about 2 hours for the lander to return to the surface. It touched down for a second time at 17:26 GMT, then bounced again before finally coming to rest at 17:33.

We landed twice: Philae comet probe may have bounced after harpoon failureBy Dave Gilbert, CNN

The comet probe Philae may have bounced when it landed, the European Space Agency (ESA) said Wednesday.

It is the first time a soft landing has been achieved on a comet -- but there was a hitch.

Comet 67P has a very weak gravity, so anchoring harpoons were designed to shoot into the comet to fix the spacecraft to the surface. They failed to fire and Philae is not firmly secure, ESA says.

"So maybe we didn't land once -- we landed twice," he told a news conference.

U.S., China Unveil Ambitious Climate Change Goals

The United States and China pledged Wednesday to take ambitious action to limit greenhouse gases, aiming to inject fresh momentum into the global fight against climate change ahead of high-stakes climate negotiations next year.

President Barack Obama announced that the U.S. would move much faster in cutting its levels of pollution. Chinese President Xi Jinping agreed to cap China's emissions in the future — a striking, unprecedented move by a nation that has been reluctant to box itself in on global warming.

"This is a major milestone in the U.S.-China relationship," Obama said, with Xi at his side. "It shows what's possible when we work together on an urgent global challenge."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is the only thing coming out of these negotiations, as unhinged as it is from actual climate science, because it was the only thing which be seen as an escape and "win" from the other pressing issues on which Obama had "no game" here.

The monetary shift to the Yuan is not going to stop; neither is the increased military spending by the Chinese government and its development of weapons which may at least rival, if nor surpass, those of the US military; nor is China's push to control the South China seas.

In other words, this loose agreement was the only thing that Obama could take away from this conference without looking like an abysmal failure.

PANDEMIC NEWS ORDERED SHUT DOWN BY FEDS AS NYC EBOLA WATCH LIST EXPLODES TO 357 PEOPLE

"At the urging of the Obama Administration, the Associated Press and other news outlets have agreed not to report on suspected cases of Ebola in the United States until a positive viral RNA test is completed," writes the Gateway Pundit.

Apparently, all the negative Ebola news was causing potential voters to lose faith in government... and hence lose faith in the governing democrats as well.

So Fox News, CNN and all the other mainstream media outlets simply decided to stop reporting on Ebola news. "This story is officially over," said Sean Hannity of Fox News in applauding the work of the Fox Ebola Team.

Meanwhile, Ebola news has all but disappeared across the entire national media even as the pandemic is exploding at a 900% increased rate of infection in Sierra Leone.

What Are They Thinking?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the exploding scandal of sterilization chemicals hidden in tetanus vaccines in Kenya I decided this was worth a repost. This method of concealing covert sterilization inside a tetanus shot has been done before by the United States Government, and was one of the crimes that led Gerald Ford to rescind NSS 200 as official US policy. That WHO has been caught committing the same crime again suggests that covert depopulation of resource rich regions of the planet is once again official US policy, which begs the question of whether the Ebola outbreak in Africa was not an accident by the laboratory in Kenema, but a deliberate act of genocide.

ObamaCare Architect Admits "Lack Of Transparency" Is Huge Advantage Against "Stupidity Of The American Voter"

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enrollment fall far short of predictions, in part because the healthcare.gov website was a technical disaster, health care costs have gone up, as have the premiums AND deductibles on the approved insurance policies. Contrary to the claim that the ACA would lower health insurance costs, more Americans than ever before cannot afford health insurance and now have the IRS fining them for not being able to afford health insurance.

Colloidal Silver Working Against Ebola in West Africa!

According to news reports coming out of Sierra Leone, West Africa, there's been a very surprising turn of events in regards to the Ebola crisis.

Apparently, at least several shipments of nanosilver – colloidal silver composed of very small particles of silver suspended in water – appear to have made it into West African countries where Ebola was raging.

And in spite of opposition to the use of colloidal silver by medical bureaucrats in the World Health Organization (WHO), the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the silver actually appears to working against the virus!

37 Million Bees Found Dead in Canada After Large GMO Crop Planting

The makers of neonicotinoids, the bee-killing insecticide that was banned all over Europe, won’t be able to refute this latest phenomenon. Millions of bees were found dead after GMO corn was planted in Ontario, Canada. This isn’t new news, but it should be known news.

The keeper of these bees, Dave Schuit, who produces honey, reported that he lost over 600 hives – around 37 million bees.

“Once the corn started to get planted our bees died by the millions,” Schuit said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some years back there was an article in the journal Nature that demonstrated GMO pollen was harmful to benign insect species. The article focused primarily on the effects of GMO pollen on the monarch butterfly, which alongside the bee, does pollination on plants. The article showed conclusively that the GMO pollen was harmful to the insects, but as Colony Collapse Disorder became news, we were fed a steady stream of propaganda to point the finger of blame at cell phone towers, mites, fungi, and insecticides.

It may well be that killing of nature's pollinators is part of the GMO business plan, as farmers who can no longer grow natural and organic crops will be forces to buy the pre-pollinated seeds from the GMO tech companies. This means that when the economy collapses and those tech companies go out of business, the global famine that will follow will be much worse since the natural food crops have been decimated in the name of corporate greed.

A study out of Denmark seems to have found something good can come out of a high-fat diet. The study was conducted while looking at the effects of a high-fat diet on Cockayne syndrome, a premature aging disease.

The hope is such a diet can not only help children with Cockayne syndrome, who more often die of old age related symptoms somewhere between 10 and 12, but also help others. That is what the study found could happen.
“Our study suggests that a high-fat diet can postpone aging processes," lead author of the study, Professor Vilhelm Bohr of the Center for Healthy Aging at the Univ. of Copenhagen, said in a press release. "A diet high in fat also seems to postpone the aging of the brain. The findings therefore potentially imply that patients with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease in the long term may benefit from the new knowledge."

'Ebola is man-made', and other crazy conspiracy theories

Is Obama behind the Ebola outbreak? Are planes poisoning us? Is Lady Gaga part of an evil Illuminati plot? The five conspiracy theories you won't believe people believe

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic "poison the well" propaganda piece in which they take the one theory for which there is evidence; a botch-up of human trials for a vaccine against a weaponized Ebola, and blend it in with all sorts of unrelated nonsense to try to discredit it. But let us look at the facts.

The story that is emerging regarding the current Ebola outbreak involves a US bioweapons research laboratory located in a hospital at Kenema, Sierra Leone.

This facility was staffed by biological warfare researchers from Tulane University and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID). Biological warfare research that is illegal to conduct in the United States is carried out in remote locations in Africa.

In 2010, the Obama Administration directed the National Institutes of Health to give offensive biological weapons research high priority.Multiple sources report that some of this research involved weaponization of Ebola. Professor Francis Boyle, a biological weapons expert, reports that the NIH was experimenting with a hybrid of Ebola and the common cold, to make it more contagious.


Obviously, if one is creating a highly contagious BSL 4 hot agent, one must also have a vaccine to protect ones own people, and it appears that this was the research being done at Kenema. In January of 2014, The lab at Kenema received $140 million from the US Defense Department and Tekmira pharmaceuticals to test an experimental Ebola vaccine on humans. Most viral vaccines involve the actual virus which has been attenuated or otherwise inactivated so that it triggers the creation of antibodies, but without producing symptoms of the illness. The attenuated virus must be kept as close to the real virus as possible for maximum antibody production. But even CDC acknowledges that attenuated virus in vaccines can spontaneously revert to full potency inside the body. This appears to be what happened with the recent measles and mumps epidemics in the US, where 90% of the patients had been administered the vaccines for those illnesses. And this may be what happened at Kenema during the human trials for the Ebola vaccine, as the African Ebola outbreak centers on Kenema, Sierra Leone. Certainly the government of Sierra Leone views the biological warfare laboratory as ground zero in the outbreak and has closed the research facility (but reopened the hospital portion in October 2014).

FLASHBACK 2001 - GM corn set to stop man spreading his seed

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation.

The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm.

By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.

'We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies,' said Epicyte president Mitch Hein.

Newly discovered fossil could prove a problem for creationists

Researchers report that they've found the missing link between an ancient aquatic predator and its ancestors on land. Ichthyosaurs, the dolphin-like reptiles that lived in the sea during the time of the dinosaurs, evolved from terrestrial creatures that made their way back into the water over time.

But the fossil record for the lineage has been spotty, without a clear link between land-based reptiles and the aquatic ichthyosaurs scientists know came after. Now, researchers report in Nature that they've found that link — an amphibious ancestor of the swimming ichthyosaurs named Cartorhynchus lenticarpus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Young earth creationism is essentially the position that all of modern science, 90% of living scientists and 98% of living biologists, all major university biology departments, every major science journal, the American Academy of Sciences, and every major science organization in the world, are all wrong regarding the origins and development of life ... but one particular tribe of uneducated, bronze aged, goat herders got it exactly right."

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccine

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

Ebola cases rise sharply in Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is reporting an alarming increase in the number of new Ebola cases, with 435 confirmed in the past week.

About 24% of the Ebola cases in Sierra Leone have been reported in the past three weeks, although the outbreak began in March, according to the World Health Organization.

Those stark figures contrast with the hopeful news last week from Liberia, where the number of new cases has been falling. Officials at the WHO have said the drop in Liberia could be partly due to an increase in safe burials.

Ebola transmission in Guinea, where the outbreak started, "remains intense," according to the WHO.

Health officials from the WHO have cautioned, however, that the Ebola virus is unpredictable. Cases may appear to fall or level off only to come raging back a short time later.

Boehner vows House will repeal Obamacare

House Speaker John A. Boehner said President Obama will “poison” chances for cooperation with Congress if he moves unilaterally to claim powers to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.

“He’s going to burn himself if he continues to go down this path,” Mr. Boehner said.

Newly elected to his House seat and likely to be returned at speaker in the next Congress, Mr. Boehner said he would like to tackle immigration in Congress but wouldn’t commit to holding a vote, saying he wanted to talk with his fellow House Republicans first.

SEE ALSO: White House predicts GOP might ‘change their tune’ after landslide victory

He did, however, say the House will vote to repeal Obamacare and will also likely pass a bunch of bills to carve out some of the most contentious parts such as a tax on medical devices or the individual mandate.

“We need to put them on the president’s desk and let him choose,” the speaker said.

The villagers, scared that the aid workers were bringing the disease, hacked them down with machetes. Their mutilated bodies were found in the latrine days later.

Study Says Natural Factors, Not Humans, Behind West Coast Warming

Oceanographers and atmospheric scientists are quick to say the warming waters are not linked to human-caused climate change, but also say what they've seen doesn't match other recognized patterns in ocean conditions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Maybe.

Or maybe we have a classic case of specialists being so specialized they don't see what they need to see.

Here is where "interdisciplinary" science becomes valuable.

In the illustration shown in the above article, note that the pattern of heat appears near New Guinea in the area of the Marianas trench. I have indicated the point of origin on the below copy.



Now, I have mentioned many times before that nobody knows how many active volcanoes and thermal vents there are on the floor of the world's oceans, but we do know where many of them are, as is indicated on this map from the USGS.

From the section indicated in detail it is clear that there are a great many volcanoes in the exact same area where the plume of warm water is appearing, which suggests that these volcanoes, rather than human activity or unknown ocean flow patterns, is what is pouring heat into the Pacific!

Shocking report accuses Obama's 'Dreamers' of killing U.S. kids

A stinging report released on Tuesday by a renowned Inside the Beltway watchdog group accused President Barack Obama's allegedly fabricated “humanitarian crisis” that allowed tens of thousands of illegal aliens minors -- who unlawfully flooded the border into Texas and were dispersed throughout the United States -- of spreading a deadly respiratory virus that’s attacking American children in a number of states throughout country. It's believed the virus actually killed as many as nine kids so far, according to the public-interest law firm that battles government corruption in the federal courts, Judicial Watch. In the group's latest addition to its Corruption Chronicles, the nonprofit, nonpartisan investigators of government corruption and criminal activity describe a cynical and destructive immigration policy that led to at least nine American children dying from a highly contagious disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Obama's sole purpose in flooding the illegals into the US was to create instant Democratic voters in states without voter ID laws to swing the midterms towards the Democrats, he utterly failed, which means all those American kids were allowed to become sick for no reason. Speculation is that Obama will try to cram though amnesty before the new Congress starts in January, but if swinging the vote was his only objective I would not be surprised to see Obama just drop the whole issue as "punishment" for the illegals who "failed" to keep the Democrats in power.

GMO Labeling: Colorado Voters Reject Food Measure; Maui Voters Approve

In the latest bids for states to compel companies to label foods that contain genetically modified ingredients, Colorado voters decided the issue in their state today.

Proposition 105, was defeated by a roughly 2-1 margin Tuesday.

Oregon voters also considered a measure, but it is still too close to call — the no vote leading the yes vote by two percentage points with more than 80 percent of the vote counted.

In Hawaii, Maui County voters considered an initiative that went far beyond labeling. By a slim margin, voters decided to temporarily ban genetically engineered crops.

"The county's first-ever ballot initiative targeting global agriculture companies Monsanto and Dow AgroSciences attracted nearly $8 million from opponents," Honolulu Civil Beat reports, "making it the most expensive campaign in Hawaii's history."

That the expense equates to "more than $75 per registered voter in Maui County, which has a population of just around 160,000."

Government Lied About Pandemic Which Killed 50 Million People … Attempt to “Prevent Panic” Backfired

In the United States, national and local government and public health authorities badly mishandled the [1918 "Spanish Flu"] epidemic [which killed up to 50 million people worldwide], offering a useful case study.

The context is important. Every country engaged in World War I tried to control public perception. To avoid hurting morale, even in the nonlethal first wave the press in countries fighting in the war did not mention the outbreak. (But Spain was not at war and its press wrote about it, so the pandemic became known as the Spanish flu).

The United States was no different. In 1917 California Senator Hiram Johnson made the since-famous observation that “The first casualty when war comes is truth.” The U.S. government passed a law that made it punishable by 20 years in jail to “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the government of the United States.”

A group of aid agencies says that thousands of people in Sierra Leone are being forced to violate Ebola quarantines to find food because deliveries are not reaching them.

In order to prevent the spread of Ebola, large swaths of the West African country have been sealed off and within those areas many people have been ordered to stay in their homes. The government, with help from the U.N.'s World Food Program, is tasked with delivering food and other services to those people.

Drug Makers Push for Indemnity for Fast-Tracked Ebola Vaccines

For starters, vaccine manufacturers are demanding indemnity against lawsuits that may arise from the use of a fast-tracked Ebola vaccine,2 similar to the indemnity claimed by the United Nations (UN), whose peacekeepers stand accused of causing the cholera outbreak in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the small country.

An estimated 700,000 Haitians have contracted cholera and 8,500 have died from it since the beginning of the outbreak. While the source of the outbreak could not be conclusively determined, a group of Haitians filed a lawsuit against the UN in 2013.

A lawyer for the US Justice Department recently called for the case to be dismissed, saying the UN is "absolutely immune" to claims of wrongdoing.3 This is the kind of "immunity" vaccine makers want as well, but indemnity might not be quite as easy to get as initially thought in this case.

‘Entire villages disappeared’: Ebola deaths in Sierra Leone ‘underreported’

Ebola’s toll on Sierra Leone is much greater than previously thought, with entire villages killed off by the virus. This means up to 20,000 people could have succumbed to the disease by now, a senior coordinator for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) believes.

According to Rony Zachariah, coordinator of operational research for MSF, the Ebola impact on Sierra Leone is in fact “under-reported,” AFP quotes.

“The situation is catastrophic. There are several villages and communities that have been basically wiped out. In one of the villages I went to, there were 40 inhabitants and 39 died,” Zachariah told the agency.“Whole communities have disappeared but many of them are not in the statistics. The situation on the ground is actually much worse.”

State Department plans to bring foreign Ebola patients to U.S.

The State Department has quietly made plans to bring Ebola-infected doctors and medical aides to the U.S. for treatment, according to an internal department document that argued the only way to get other countries to send medical teams to West Africa is to promise that the U.S. will be the world’s medical backstop.

Some countries “are implicitly or explicitly waiting for medevac assurances” before they will agree to send their own medical teams to join U.S. and U.N. aid workers on the ground, the State Department argues in the undated four-page memo, which was reviewed by The Washington Times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only treatment that has consistently worked so far is transfusion of blood from an Ebola survivor of the same blood type. That is something that every nation can already do. So the only reason these other nations want to take their infected Ebola workers is that they don;t want the risk of bringing them back to their own nation and risk a runaway infection of their own people. Isn't it special that Obama doesn't seem to care if that is a problem here, so long as we all get to the polls Tuesday and those shopping malls for the Christmas shopping season!

The Man Who Turned Down Chemotherapy and Outlived His Doctors

You could say that Stamatis Moraitis forgot to die. The Greek war veteran was diagnosed by 9 different American doctors with lung cancer in 1976. He was given 6 months to live and was encouraged to pursue aggressive cancer treatment. He declined and instead moved back to his native land of Ikaria. Then something incredible happened.

His cancer went away!

Former Pro-GMO Biotech Scientist Admits GMOs Aren’t Safe, Refutes Claims by Monsanto

In comes Dr. Thierry Vrain, a former GMO biotechnologist who has come out with a lot of information that should open people’s eyes about the real dangers of genetically modified foods and crops.

Vrain will be the first to admit that Monsanto has conducted a lot of studies showing that GMOs are safe, but he changed his own tune about ten years ago when he started reading scientific journals from other countries.

Vrain explains:

“I started paying attention to the flow of published studies coming from Europe, some from prestigious labs and published in prestigious scientific journals, that questioned the impact and safety of engineered food.”

Vrain was so much a supporter of GMOs (as well as a former biotech scientist for Agriculture Canada) that he used to conduct tours and tell large groups of people all about the greatness of genetically altered crops – but not anymore. Here is what he thinks about his former industry now:

Amelia Earhart plane fragment identified

A fragment of Amelia Earhart's lost aircraft has been identified to a high degree of certainty for the first time ever since her plane vanished over the Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937, in a record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.

New research strongly suggests that a piece of aluminum aircraft debris recovered in 1991 from Nikumaroro, an uninhabited atoll in the southwestern Pacific republic of Kiribati, does belong to Earhart's twin-engined Lockheed Electra.

FLASHBACK 2010 - Obama Administration Gives NIH Priority to Bioweapons Research

The priorities of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the area of bacteriology have been “catastrophically re-ordered” by emphasizing bioweapons research over non-bioweapons research, a prominent authority states.

Giving priority to bioweapons research at NIH, started under the Bush Administration and continuing under President Obama, “diverts resources from critical public-health and scientific objectives,” says Richard Ebright, Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, N.J.

“The negative impact has been most severe in bacteriology, in which NIH research priorities have been catastrophically re-ordered—with research on bacterial bioweapons receiving more support than research on the top five bacterial causes of death combined—and in which non-bioweapons research has suffered catastrophic losses in resources and personnel,” Ebright said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, back in 2010 Obama ordered the NIH to switch their priority from health to bioweapons research. Professor Francis Boyle reports that NIH spliced Ebola with the common cold to weaponize it, and evidence has surfaced that the bioweapon lab at Kenema was testing a vaccine against this weaponized Ebola last January ... which is when the Ebola outbreak erupted in the area around that lab. Now Obama has quietly "paused" offensive bioweapon research in the US.

This is starting to read like the first chapter of Stephen King's "The Stand", where the world population is all but wiped out when a bioweapon, popularly called "Captain Trips", escaped from a US laboratory.

The administration's handling of Ebola as if it is no big deal may partly be rooted in their awareness that the US, and Obama, may be at root responsible for this deadly outbreak!

Costa Rica on alert after Turrialba volcano spews ash

Costa Rica has issued an emergency alert after ash from an erupting volcano reached the capital and beyond.

Turrialba volcano, some 50km (30 miles) east of San Jose, began rumbling and producing seismic activity on Wednesday night.

The authorities said they were evacuating nearby residents to temporary shelters as a precaution.

Eyewitnesses reported fiery explosions and ash falling like snow over parts of central Costa Rica.

In California, Consumer Watchdog's Prop 45 Challenges Obamacare — From the Left

Blue Shield of California, one of the state's four major health insurers, has a sales office on the 20th floor of the Pacific Corporate Towers in El Segundo. Had the employees peered down to the plaza on a recent Tuesday morning, they would have seen a small cluster of picketers.

From 300 feet up, it would be impossible to read the signs, or hear the chants, or smell the aroma drifting off the white pickup truck that was parked below in a loading zone. But on the ground, the scent is unmistakable: manure.

Jamie Court, the president of Consumer Watchdog, shovels some into a wheelbarrow and announces that he will be delivering it to Blue Shield's executives.

"We're gonna give them back what they've been giving us for the last five months," he tells a row of news cameras. "We're not buying their bull."

Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo Crashes During Flight Test

Virgin Galactic said its SpaceShipTwo rocket plane suffered an "in-flight anomaly" during a powered test flight on Friday that resulted in the loss of the aircraft.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess "exploded and blown to smithereens" is not considered appropriate public relations.

I don't mean to be flip, but I heard "anomaly" used a lot at NASA as the description for something that had just rekitted itself into a smoking hole in the ground. NASA used that word following the explosion of Challenger.

Gizmodo is reporting that this flight was the first test of an improved fuel. Burt Rutan is a genius at aviation design, but these things do happen when you are on the cutting edge.

UPDATE: One pilot dead, the other seriously injured.

Judge enforces [then rejects] Ebola isolation of defiant Maine nurse

A judge on Friday ordered an American nurse who treated Ebola patients in Sierra Leone for the disease to obey a state-imposed quarantine after she defied Maine officials and went for a bike ride.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UPDATE: The corporate media are now reporting that the same judge REJECTED quarantine for the nurse! The nurse, who already defied a previous quarantine to go on a bike ride in full view of the media, is on the honor system to keep herself three feet away from other people while waiting for further court hearings.

Here are the facts. Kaci Hickox's roommate in Africa tested positive for Ebola. As of the 29th of October, even the CDC was saying that close proximity to an Ebola patient was legitimate grounds for the restriction of movement. Kaci is just 11 days into the 21-day quarantine period (and remember that some researchers are saying that the incubation period for this strain can be as long as 42 days). The approved test for Ebola has a record for false-negatives, and 13% of the people that have Ebola do not display symptoms. Even CDC is now admitting Ebola can be transmitted through sneezes, with MIT saying the range of such sneezes is 20 feet, and through secretions left on surfaces such as counter tops and doorknobs.

Everyone is still treating this as a political issue, making their decisions based on economics, public relations, and making sure the voters show up at the polls next Tuesday. They are NOT making their choices based on the science. And that, far more than the Ebola itself, scares me!

Court orders movement restrictions on Maine nurse over Ebola fears

A District Court judge in Maine has authorized an order restricting the movements of a nurse who recently returned to the area from West Africa over fears that she might spread the deadly Ebola virus.

In response to a request filed earlier this week by state officials, District Court Chief Judge Charles LaVerdiere wrote that the nurse, Kaci Hickox, must stay at least three feet away from all other persons effective Friday, as well as adhere to a half-dozen other restrictions pending further instruction expected to come in the next 10 days.

Industrial-strength scare-propaganda: mind control

On July 26, 2000, the Journal of the American Medical Association published Dr. Barbara Starfield’s review, “Is US health really the best in the world?”

In it, Starfield, who was a respected public health expert working at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health, stated that:

* The US medical system kills 225,000 Americans a year.

* 106,000 deaths per year from FDA-approved medical drugs.

* 119,000 deaths per year from error-ridden treatment in hospitals.

Why It's OK To Worry About Ebola, And What's Truly Scary

The people who are trying to say stop worrying about Ebola in New York, stop worrying about Ebola at Newark airport, what they're trying to do is lose the teachable moment. If they succeed in getting people to stop worrying, they will regret it, because there's a lot to worry about it.

Calming us down shouldn't be a goal. It would be different if people were panicking in the street.

But the evidence doesn't say that say people are unreasonably, dangerously upset. They're sometimes worried about the right things more than the experts are.
