Company breaks open Apple Watch to discover what it says is 'planned obsolescence'

“The S1 SiP [internal system in package] is encased in resin, and is further held in place by a mess of glue and soldered ribbon connectors. In short, basic component replacements look nearly impossible.”

The s1SiP is custom-designed Apple technology that integrates a number of subsystems like the chip into one package. It is encased in resin to increase its durability.

Therefore, according to iFixit, the Apple Watch has intentional obsolescence built into it as it will become technologically redundant as processors become faster and apps are supported only by the newest models.

This tactic is known as 'planned obsolescence' and has been an accusation levelled at Apple for a number of years.

Congress Wants to Put Artisanal Soap Makers Out of Business for Your Safety

What! You mean to tell me you don’t use Dial or Zest to get clean?

You use HANDMADE SOAP?????

But how will you get your daily dose of cancer-causing parabens? Your hormone-disrupting substances?

The government is VERY concerned about this. VERY.

So much so that they wish to regulate and charge artisanal soapmakers right out of business.

McDonalds shuts down hundreds of stores worldwide as sales decline

It was announced this week that McDonalds will be closing hundreds of stores worldwide, as global sales continue to decline. To begin the year of 2015, the infamous fast food chain will be closing at least 700 of its locations, which is double the number that was planned for closure earlier this year.In the first 3 months of 2015, McDonalds saw a 2.3% decrease in sales and a 28% drop in operating revenue, continuing a trend of loss that the company has been experiencing for years.Speaking in a conference call with the Wall Street Journal earlier this week, the company’s new CEO, Steve Easterbrook said that massive changes will be needed to improve McDonald’s struggling reputation.

KingCast and Mortgage Movies Present: Trouble in Paradise -- Maui Foreclosures Allowed by Judge Peter T. Cahill Without Proof of Standing or HRS §667-17 Compliance.

24 April 2014 -- First video coming today. Wells Fargo responded after I outed them and counsel for reading my email with proof that all of them had read my inquiry but had not yet responded. Query, what percentage of the homes valued over $500K received a loan mod.... when the stakes get high the banksters for the the gold.

Hello Mr. King,

Is it time to put a woman’s face on the $20 bill?

It is no coincidence that the target of this effort is Andrew Jackson. Really, the last President to fight the private central bankers centered in the City of London, UK, and win. It is also no coincidence that Jackson was the target of a unsuccessful assassination attempt in the wake of his battles with the private central banks. The two are connected.

In fact, it is my opinion, the assassinations of Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley and even Kennedy are linked, in part, to their attitudes towards the private central bank that really has been running the world since the Battle of Waterloo: their opinion that the money ownership of the United States should be vested in the people and the states per the US Constitution.

False economy - 98% of cars can't match their mpg claims

If you bought a car advertised as offering fuel economy of 148 miles-per-gallon, but it then failed to deliver more than 67mpg – less than half – you’d be pretty disappointed. You’d also be spending a whopping £459 more a year on fuel than you expected.

Astonishingly, that’s exactly the situation you could be in if you bought a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV – a plug-in hybrid that is marketed on the strength of its efficiency.

But Mitsubishi’s SUV is far from the only car that fails to reach its official fuel economy figure – in fact, Which? testing has found that 98% of the 200 cars we assessed over the past two years couldn’t match or beat their mpg claims, with all but three missing their official figures.

THE TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP AND THE DEATH OF THE REPUBLIC

A republican form of government is one in which power resides in elected officials representing the citizens, and government leaders exercise power according to the rule of law. In The Federalist Papers, James Madison defined a republic as “a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people . . . .” On April 22, 2015, the Senate Finance Committee approved a bill to fast-track the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a massive trade agreement that would override our republican form of government and hand judicial and legislative authority to a foreign three-person panel of corporate lawyers.

DIET PEPSI DROPPING ASPARTAME ON CUSTOMER CONCERNS

?The decision to swap sweeteners comes as Americans keep turning away from popular diet sodas. Competitor Coca-Cola said this week that sales volume for Diet Coke, which also uses aspartame, fell 5 percent in North America in the first three months of the year.

Executives at Coke and Pepsi blame the declines on perceptions that aspartame isn’t safe. That’s even though the Food and Drug Administration says aspartame, best known by the brand names Equal and NutraSweet, is “one of the most exhaustively studied substances in the human food supply, with more than 100 studies supporting its safety.”

US Journalist Dispel Myths About The “Dangerous For Foreigners” Russia

Why You Shouldn’t Be a Part of the 90% Of Americans Who Still Use Microwaves

They’re fast, convenient, and easy to use. Manufacturers even produce packaged foods specifically for their use. What I’m referring to are of course, microwave ovens, the household appliance that is still regularly used as a part of meal preparation and re-heating in approximately 90% of American homes.

I say “still” in the previous statement because the dangers associated with microwave use have been documented for quite some time, dangers that I will once again outline in this article. Ultimately, arguments can always be made for the use of anything harmful if done in moderation, but given the hectic nature of most of our lives, the convenience the device offers makes little to moderate use seem very unlikely to be practiced.

Abbott Laboratories Challenged over GMO Ingredients in Infant Formula

For the third year in a row, shareholders at Abbott Laboratories’ annual meeting on April 24 will vote on a proposal to disclose which nutritional products, including Similac Infant Formula, contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and what actions the company is taking to reduce or eliminate those ingredients. The shareholder resolution was filed by environmental health advocacy organization As You Sow.

In January testing commissioned by Moms Across America found that the world’s number one herbicide, glyphosate, was found in Abbott’s PediaSure Enteral Nutritional Drink, which is widely used by hospitals in the U.S. for children who are in need of nutrition in intensive care. Glyphosate herbicides are used much more on GM crops than on conventional crops...

Thieves using a $17 power amplifier to break into cars with remote keyless systems

Cars with keyless entry systems are capable of searching for a wireless key fob that is within a couple feet of the vehicle, but car thieves can use a $17 "power amplifier" to boost the key searching capabilities, sometimes up to around 100 meters, and pull off a high-tech car break-in.

After almost becoming a victim of a high-tech car heist again, Nick Bilton over at The New York Times said he is now keeping the keys to his 2013 Prius in the freezer. There had been a rash of mysterious car break-ins near his Los Angeles address, including three break-ins to his own car; all cars involved had remote keyless systems that come with a wireless key fob which is used to unlock the doors and start the engine instead of using a physical key.

US Farmers Going Out of Business Due to GM Crop Contamination

If you’re a farmer who wants to grow any crops that aren’t owned by the biotech industry, you had better be ready to burn some money. At least this is what organic farmers are saying, who are trying to grow organic crops but can’t due to pollen drift and cross-pollination. That’s right: GMO crops are contaminating the organic crops we’re fighting so hard to keep.

The news is out that demand for organic food is one the rise – it’s expected to be a $35 million dollar industry soon, and keep exploding from there. The challenge that organic farmers face; however, and one that the US FDA refuses to address, is that even in the highly subsidized markets of corn and soy growing, Big Biotech has the upper hand.

Paetec aka Windstream Communications Paetec knowingly provides VioP Services to scammers allowing them to harrass and rip off people - they don't respond to complaints, Internet

Paetec Communications owned now by Windstream Communications provides VoiP phone services. They sell these services to scammers who use their VoiP lines to call consumers in violation of the national do not call list. These scammers attempt to BS consumers out of credit card, bank account, and SSN info. The scammers use a variety of ruses such as a "free alarm sign in your yard and free alarm system", etc.

While I've not been taken in by any of these scammers - my complaint is that Paetec is aware these companies are committing fraud and violations of Federal law and they do not respond to any complaints made to them about the fact their customers are doing this. They are providing the means for theft and they are aware of it and yet they choose to do nothing. Case in point a phone # 718-732-1022 which is owned by Paetec but being used by a bunch of scammers overseas. Paetec has been informed of this and has chosen to take no action.

Regarding American biotech companies and their attempts to infest the planet with genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and in particular their attempts to corrupt the whole of Europe with their unwanted poison through a backdoor (Ukraine), has prompted Russia to speak up for their Eastern European neighbor. Up until the armed coup in 2013-2014, also known as the “Euromaidan,” Ukraine had adamantly rejected GMOs.

These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

Monsanto Is the Dept. Of Homeland Security for Food

Being the US government means being on permanent wartime status.

Wherever it is possible to fantasize enemies, enemies are there. They must be conquered. They must be stopped.

It’s a vast cover story that, among other benefits, provides enormous profits to the military industrial complex.

Here’s an addition to the cover story: to accomplish this war on everything that moves, advanced technology must be deployed—and those who resist the omnipresence and domination of the technology are considered potential terrorists.

Even a small organic American farmer on an acre of land can qualify as a threat, because he appears to oppose the technology of genetic engineering, as it applies to food crops...

Britain Will Still Be In Deficit In 2020

In blow to George Osborne, International Monetary Fund says Britain will still be in deficit in 2020

Who ever is elected on 7 May, his or her goverment will fail to balance the books before the end of the decade, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF)

The organisation said "uncertainties" surrounding next month's general election implied that austerity would be less severe than currently forecast.

In a blow to Tory plans to achieve an overall budget surplus by 2018-19, IMF forecasts showed the UK would still be running a deficit of around 0.3% of gross domestic product (GDP) by 2020 - or around £7bn under implied spending plans - instead of a surplus of the same amount.

It’s possible that scientists are now looking into using the revolutionary technique to permanently edit the genome of human eggs, sperm and embryos, a process called germline engineering.

The European Union Accused Google Of Abusing Its Dominant Position

The European Commission has sent a Statement of Objections to Google affirming the organization has mishandled its prevailing position in the businesses for general web hunt benefits in the European Economic Area (EEA) by methodically supporting its own correlation shopping item in its general query items pages. The Commission’s preparatory perspective is that such direct encroaches EU antitrust principles in light of the fact that it smothers rivalry and damages shoppers.

Obama Administration Plotting Adult Vaccination Mandates

In collaboration with Big Business and special interests, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is plotting a new program to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to “encourage” more inoculations, and foist more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Federal bureaucrats and crony capitalists set to profit from the proposal claim the goal is to improve “public health,” and establishment media outlets have largely parroted that line so far. However, critics of the unconstitutional scheme, formally dubbed the “National Adult Immunization Plan” (NAIP), say the ultimate goal is to forcibly vaccinate all Americans and move toward a radical new healthcare paradigm in which medical “treatment” is delivered at gunpoint.

Fracking Pollutes California Water While Individuals Suffer

Billions of gallons contaminated

As California lawmakers decide if resident ‘water wasters’ should face jail time as a drought strikes the state, water agencies are busy working on higher rates and fees to penalize individual residents. This is happening while the act of hydraulic fracturing is polluting massive amounts of water in the state. As the main facilitator in the pollution of California’s two biggest fresh water aquifers, the real question is: “who will report California Governor Jerry Brown?”

Directly, because of Governor Brown, fracking wastewater has been allowed to pollute key aquifers that contain high-quality water protected under the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. This is a federal act that appears to be vestigial showing little repercussions to some of Governor Brown’s biggest campaign donors; big oil and natural gas interests.

How Robots & Algorithms Are Taking Over

In September 2013, about a year before Nicholas Carr published The Glass Cage: Automation and Us, his chastening meditation on the human future, a pair of Oxford researchers issued a report predicting that nearly half of all jobs in the United States could be lost to machines within the next twenty years. The researchers, Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael Osborne, looked at seven hundred kinds of work and found that of those occupations, among the most susceptible to automation were loan officers, receptionists, paralegals, store clerks, taxi drivers, and security guards. Even computer programmers, the people writing the algorithms that are taking on these tasks, will not be immune. By Frey and Osborne’s calculations, there is about a 50 percent chance that programming, too, will be outsourced to machines within the next two decades.

The U.S. Congress Is “Out to Lunch” About Vaccine Science—Here’s Proof

Catherine J. Frompovich

If ever there were a body of numbskulls taking in the “cool aid” of corporate largess, lobbyists and consensus science, the U.S. Congress, apparently, fits that bill when it comes to the hard-core facts regarding toxic ingredients in vaccines along with the so-called ‘science of vaccines’ and the vested-interest roles they have played in modern life.

Nothing expresses that more than the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34), which has become more of a nightmare, especially for anyone who’s been damaged by vaccines. Congress apparently went ‘off the rails’ on that one; never has bothered to investigate all the damage vaccines are causing—see the VAERS reporting system—and now, the current members of the U.S. House of Representatives issued a House Resolution—H.Res.117—that readers need to know about...

California Water Authorities Using Smart Meter Data as Evidence to Impose Fines

Essentially, consumption of utilities in your home is being big brother tracked and traced at all times on the smart grid.

Sure, it was sold to everyone as a “smart” solution for keeping consumption in check, that it would decrease utility bills because people could use it to check out how much they use and find smart ways to cut down. (How many people are really even doing that, by the way?)

Not only is this going to be used to serve up “peak pricing” models against the population — to price electricity and water higher during times of higher consumption by the population — it’s also going to be used to allow the people to tattle on themselves via their data, a set up that will come with heavy financial consequences.

As we can see happening now in California during its historic drought, smart meters are also being used by authorities to seek people out and impose fines.

Study: 70% of People on Antidepressants Don’t Have Depression

If sales for antidepressants such as Zoloft, Lexapro, or Prozac tell us anything, it’s that depression is sweeping the nation. But a new study questions the validity of most of these sales. The study has found that the majority of individuals on antidepressants – a whopping 69% – do not even meet the criteria for clinical depression. These individuals are likely just experiencing normal sadness and hardships that most of us experience.

In addition to finding that nearly two-thirds of antidepressant-takers don’t meet criteria for depression, the researchers also note how 38% of those taking antidepressants for other psychiatric disorders do not meet the criteria. These include panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, social phobio, general anxiety, and a number of other arguably fabricated mental disorders.

The study, published in The Journal of Clinical Psychiatry, reads:

Friday, April 3, 2015

A KingCast/Mortgage Movies Minute with Federal Counsel in Meyer v. U.S. Bank.

U.S. Bank et al. got smacked in the Bankruptcy Court and now appeals. Plaintiff/Appellee Attorney Richard Jones asks "If I provide documents to this Court which contained material misrepresentations, would this Court let me off the hook?"

Judge Martinez:
"At what point does the Magistrate have an affirmative duty to investigate the veracity of these documents that are put before it?"

Richard Jones, Esq.:"Under the Deed of Trust Act strict compliance is required. Substantial compliance is insufficient. The problem Judge Overstreet was facing is NWTS did not even have procedure to investigate. That is material and goes to the Public Impact -- they were flying blind" (as admitted by Jeff Stenman -- see Ha Dao Jeff Stenman videos at Affordable Video Depo).

Judge Martinez:

Report Finds Gerber Baby Food Filled With GMOs

What kind of person, even as the head of a major food retailer, would want to feed developing children pesticides and questionable genetically modified ingredients? That’s a question to consider when you find out that one of Gerber’s popular baby food items has been found to be full of insecticidal GMOs.

Do these executives not realize they are feeding these to our children or do they just not care?

Lab tests have confirmed that Gerber’s Lil’ Crunchies snacks are full of Roundup Ready, insecticidal GMO ingredients. Even the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has issued a policy statement recommending that children’s exposure to pesticides be reduced. How can this company put them in a snack that little ones are meant to munch on?

ADHD: We Have Not Properly Diagnosed This Condition

In 2012 The Toronto Star published an article titled ADHD Drugs Suspected Of Hurting Canadian Kids. Recently, CBC Health News released an article titled ADHD Drugs To Add Suicide Risk Warnings. Dr. Eldon Dahl, ND responded to the contents of both of these articles in an essay which he wrote titled “ADHD: We Have Not Properly Diagnosed This Condition.”

When medical treatment for ADHD involves added side effects such as: strokes; convulsions; hallucinations; depression; and suicide, you have the wrong medication. These are very serious side effects for treating a not-so-serious health condition.

Does Fracking Bring Opportunities or Danger?

Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side, there’s the gas drilling companies; on the other, citizens opposed to this drilling method and concerned about the environmental impact.

This video focuses mostly on the ongoing debate about fraking in Europe. In many European countries, such as Germany, there is a public outcry against fracking. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us, considering our high energy consumption and the dangers fraking can pose to our drinking water.

World’s Hunger for Meat is Causing the Superbug Apocalypse

One of the “apocalyptic” threats facing the Earth is antibiotic resistant bacteria. Infections resistant to antibiotics are kill well over 100,000 people worldwide and independent panel has estimated that global deaths could soar to 10 million a year by 2050 at a cost to the economy of $100 trillion. Even the FDA has conceded that if we don’t phase out antibiotic use in farm animals, the world may be vulnerable to killer diseases in the future.

Due to the vast uses implemented for antimicrobial drugs in both humans and animals, they have contributed to the development of antimicrobial resistance. It is imperative that we begin to eliminate the use of drugs from the food supply.

In the first estimate of its kind, researchers calculate that farmers globally feed 63,000 tonnes of antibiotics to chickens, pigs and cattle every year — and that will climb by 67 per cent, to 106,000 tonnes, by 2030.

IS CHINESE THEFT OF MONSANTO GMO CORN SEEDS A NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUE OR JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF SLEAZY BUSINESS?

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employed tools designed to be used against terrorists when going after two Chinese nationals for trying to steal genetically modified corn seeds and send them back to China.

The case against Mo Hailong and Mo Yun was brought after the FBI suspected the siblings of plotting to steal patented seeds from companies including DuPont Pioneer and Monsanto and ship them home so a Chinese agriculture company, the Beijing Dabeinong Technology Group, could grow genetically modified corn. In going after the brother and sister, and five others, the FBI invoked the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), which is best known for being used to track down terrorists, so agents could gather evidence against the defendants.

FDA Pushing To Regulate Homeopathy Out of Existence

Dr. Martha Grout, MD, MD(H)

Why is there a sudden push by the FDA to label homeopathic remedies as dangerous? Why is there a need to regulate substances that have been used for hundreds of years with out any issues? What does the FDA have to gain?

The FDA has published two documents recently, which suggest that WAR is being declared on the profession of homeopathic medicine – or at least on the manufacture of homeopathic remedies, which comes to the same thing in the end. What is a homeopath without homeopathic remedies?...

The 4 Forms of Political and Corporate Lies

“To see what is in front of one’s nose needs a constant struggle.” ~ George Orwell

As with most societal dynamics, there are various approaches and thought-processes we can employ to help us make sense of the unpredictable nonsense that constitutes today’s politics and corporate spin.

There are four forms of political lies.

Those involved in politics – the politicians, reporters and corporate lobbyists – are constantly lying. We all know it, we just don’t all appreciate the scope of it. Of course, there is outright lying which might be done in any number of ways, including complete conjuration and outright elimination of important information. However corporate heads, politicians and their faithful media normally prefer more nuanced presentations to their lies — so it pays to understand just how they go about it.

Four Forms of Political Lies

There are four basic types of political lies, which immediately correlate to the four basic forms of arithmetic.

10 Shady Origins Of Consumerism In The US

Consumerism and the practice of flaunting one’s status through clothes, jewelry, and other things has existed since the dawn of civilization. Yet, the endless cycle of working to buy has never been more rampant than it is now. How did the United States, a nation founded on Puritan, non-materialistic tenants become filled with the biggest shoppers on the planet and end up occupying 29% of the World’s consumer market? As it turns out, Americans were carefully and systematically manipulated into becoming insatiable shoppers.

BPA Cuts Fertility in Fish Three Generations Later

The offspring of fish exposed to Bisphenol A (BPA) have decreased fertility and increased embryo mortality three generations later. A new study suggests that exposed humans and their children could be affected in the same way.

BPA is a chemical that is used in a variety of consumer products, including water bottles, dental composites, and resins used to line metal food and beverage containers. Aquatic environments such as rivers and streams often become reservoirs for these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

“BPA has been proven to mimic the function of natural hormones in animals and humans,” says Ramji Bhandari, an assistant research professor of biological sciences at the University of Missouri and a visiting scientist with the US Geological Survey.

What is Open Source Lab Equipment?

by Brian Berletic

One of the biggest obstacles to getting into biology, particularly genetics and synthetic biology, is the cost of equipment and expendables. A handful of large companies make the unique, precise equipment required for laboratories; and because supply and demand is small, the cost is very high.

Usually, this price barrier would make biology inaccessible to regular people, that was until personal manufacturing and open source hardware weighed in...

Community Seed Sharing Increasingly Branded as ‘Illegal’

Aaron Dykes

Growing your own is under threat, particularly with moves to criminalize seed sharing within communities and seed libraries.

The powers that be would love for people to simply stop growing their own food crops, and in particular from growing any viable self-sustaining communities.
