Net ‘Duality’ In EU: Parliament Votes In Favor Of Tiered Internet

The European Parliament has rejected a series of amendments to a regulation intended to safeguard and strengthen net neutrality in the EU. The rejected amendmentsincluded proposals that would have ensured there was no network discrimination, all Internet traffic would be treated equally, ISPs would not be allowed to become gatekeepers, and ISPs would have only been allowed to manage traffic when it was congested. According to the Commission, “the new rules protect the right of every European to access the content of their choice, without interference or discrimination”. The new legislation, “aimed to safeguard the open Internet”, however, allows the creation of Internet fast lanes for “specialized services” and lets Internet service providers (ISPs) offer so-called “zero-rating” products —apps and services that don’t count toward monthly data allowances — without restrictions.

Suppressed Memo: Eli Lilly Hid Increase in Suicidal Thoughts and Aggression with Prozac for Years

According to reports, this Big Pharma firm literally went out of its way to not only hide the documents showing that they knew Prozac was causing suicidal and violent tendencies (even compared with other psychotropic drugs), but even hid the fact that it had settled a landmark case against the notorious SSRI, concealing even from the judge that the prosecution had been bought off and was going soft on Lilly..

Then Lilly spun it as a victory in the press, and hailed the safety of fluoxetine (Prozac)....

Paul Smith, the attorney for the plaintiffs, secretly settled the case during the trial and then denied the fact to presiding Judge John W. Potter. The plaintiffs agreed to water down their presentation of the case to the jury in return for a large secret settlement. After Eli Lilly seemed to win the trial by a 9-3 vote, Judge Potter found out that the trial was a sham aimed at exonerating the drug company.

Two epic stock market collapses within the last fifteen years have been long forgotten by the Wall Street lemmings who ignore the fact the Fed eased during both market collapses.

No, It’s Not a Hoax: Hot Dogs Actually Tested Positive for Human DNA

By Claire Bernish

If you’ve ever chosen the prosaic American classic at a grill out, you’ve likely suffered the snarky query: “You really gonna eat that? Do you have any idea what they put in hot dogs?!”

While insect parts, eyeballs, and that one oddly unidentifiable hard bit might cross your mind, any suggestion a hot dog contains human DNA likely sounds facetious. It shouldn’t. An astonishing 14.4% of samples tested for “The Hot Dog Report” by Clear Food — which provides molecular analysis of commonly purchased food brands — were euphemistically labeled “problematic.”...

Are you putting Monsanto in your vagina? 85% of tampons and feminine hygiene products contaminated with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide

In the late 1970s and early 1980s, over 50 American women were killed by their tampons. Although the FDA and the feminine hygiene industry have gone to tremendous lengths to try to memory hole this true history (and label it just a "rumor"), tampons made from certain non-natural fibers were found to harbor deadly bacteria and release a sufficient quantity of chemicals to kill or injure over a thousand women.

Big Pharma Caught Manipulating Antidepressant Drug Trials Putting Teenagers in Grave Danger

Bank Of America Folds and Reverses $70 In 'Late Fees' After We Tell them to Just Cancel the Card

A few months ago when my wife and I returned from our 35-day European vacation, she noticed that we had two $35 late fees on our Bank of America credit card. Apparently we had made the online payment too late in the day, and it wasn't processed until a day after the 'due date.' They then added another $35 fee for something or other, so our account incurred both these charges. Being a notorious cheapskate, I called up BofA and asked if they could remove the $70 in penalty fees. After all, we only keep the card active to maintain a credit line and we pay the balance off every month like clockwork. They refused to waive the fees. The phone rep said in a very arrogant and condescending tone, "NO, we are not going to reverse those charges, the two fees of thirty five dollars will remain." I then told him in a poker face manner, "Okay, then we're just going to cancel the card then. Transfer me to that department, now."

Thoughts On The American Empire and Its Decline

By Michael S. Rozeff
October 22, 2015

The American Empire is deteriorating. It’s been going downhill for decades. The descent is likely to continue, alleviated irregularly by policies that retard the decline or even reverse it for a time.

The IDEA that there is an American Empire is not widely recognized by the general public.

If the public doesn’t grasp that there is an American Empire, they cannot understand the idea that this empire is declining and headed for greater and greater failure.

“Herodotus believed that there were invariable laws to the rise and fall of empires. Empires rose and fell—as they still do today—because of individual decisions made by individual leaders.

“The greatest mistake made by those in power, like Darius, was the sin of hybris. That Greek word means ‘outrageous arrogance.’

Virginia Drivers Refuse to Hand Over Confederate License Plates

After Dylann Roof killed 9 people attending a black church in South Carolina, it seemed liked the whole country went on a campaign to stamp out the Confederate flag. It didn’t matter that the majority of Americans who revere that flag hold no racist inclinations. In our country, if one person does something crazy or stupid, everyone must suffer for it.

That’s why the state of Virgina decided to outlaw their Confederate license plates after the shooting. It is now a misdemeanor to drive with one of these plates in Virginia, and the DMV has asked anyone with Confederate plates to have them replaced. However, the vast majority of these people aren’t budging. According to the DMV, of the 1600 plates that were issued, only 187 have been returned. They even tried sending new plates to these drivers, and instead of getting the old plates back, the DMV received letters saying “no thank you.”

"So far, many jobs have been protected simply because humans are cheaper than machines." But not anymore.

In the future, we will all be on benefits, while rich people use robots to make even MORE money.

That’s the dark future hinted at by Samsung’s new ‘big project’ – a plan to build robots cheaper even than the miserably underpaid humans who work in Chinese factories.

World’s First Cashless Nation is On Track in Sweden

The full emergence of a cashless society has been a plan long in the making and taking place on many fronts.

Why not pay via identity tech such as vein scanners, facial recognition, voiceprints, iris scans – even tears? Purchases will just be so much safer and more convenient with your new Zwipe biometric credit card.

Simultaneously, we are witnessing legislation and internal banking policies that make it – or will make it – virtually impossible to use cash unless you want to be investigated for money laundering or ties to terrorism. We have begun to hear an increasing chorus from central banks, lackey politicians and of course the United States IRS who are openly declaring a war on cash.

Today I want to answer one of the most frequently asked questions I get regarding essential oils: what are the best essential oils to set aside for my survival kit? In other words, what are the specific “set it and forget it” oils that are on par with emergency food and water storage?...

Wal-Mart’s Worst Stock Crash In 27 Years Is Another Sign That The Economy Is Rapidly Falling Apart

On Wednesday, shares of Wal-Mart experienced their largest single day decline in 27 years after an extremely disappointing earnings projection was released. The stock was down about 10 percent, which represented the biggest plunge since January 1988. Over 21 billion dollars in shareholder wealth was wiped out on Wednesday, and this was just the continuation of a very bad year for Wal-Mart stockholders. Overall, shares had already declined by 22 percent so far in 2015 before we even got to Wednesday.

What Marijuana Growers Can Learn from MSNBC Pot Barons of Colorado

This is the best marijuana industry reality television show yet, but what it shows more than anything else is that people are coming to the marijuana industry to get rich quick.

It really isn’t about getting high, exploring different strains of marijuana, or growing marijuana… it’s about money money money!

Some of the male pot barons in this television series really do act, look, and talk like “barons.”

They drink expensive alcohol and make endless toasts to money. You never see them using cannabis. But they do smoke huge, fat, non-cannabis cigars.

One has a Maserati and wants his company to be “the Costco of marijuana.”

BPA-Free Does NOT Mean Safe

If you’ve been practicing a healthy lifestyle for awhile now, you’re probably familiar with the health dangers of BPA. Many manufacturers of plastic products are now coming out with BPA-free alternatives to appease the health-conscious consumers, but this may not be enough. Sciences tells us that the chemicals used to replace BPA, namely BPS and BPF, may be just as bad. Fortunately, safer alternatives do exist.

2.6 Billion Pounds of Monsanto’s Roundup Sprayed on US Farmland in 20 Years

Waking Times

The Environmental Protection agency of California has just made moves to label Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, or Glyphosate, as a ‘probably carcinogenic to humans.’ It’s linked to cancer and heavily contaminates the soil, yet there is no sign that farmers will stop using this poison any time soon. In fact, over the last couple of decades, this chemical has seen an astonishing surge in use in the United States and across the world.

Americans Now PROUD to Be Medicated With Mind-Altering Drugs: #MedicatedAndMighty Hashtag Now Being Used by Total Zombies

The corporatists at Big Pharma, as well as the purveyors of political correctness, have scored another victory with Americans: shaming anyone who thinks that dangerous psychotropic, mind-and-mood-altering medications are ultimately bad for your health.

They even have a catchy new hashtag campaign underway.

As reported by the left-leaning Buzzfeed news site, #MedicatedAndMighty is a hashtag developed by Erin Jones, a blogger who posted a photo on her Facebook page of her holding a pair of prescriptions for psychotropic drugs after being offline for a while, with this accompanying explanation:

So this also happened yesterday. I have tried living this life without prescription help. It seems to have me on top of the world one minute and rocking in the corner the next. There is no consistency. I’m done with that. Anxiety and antidepressant medication to the rescue. Sometimes, folks, we just need help.

HPV Vaccines: Public Acceptance or Psychological Manipulation?

By Norma Erickson

What happens when a potential blockbuster vaccine (Gardasil, Cervarix, or Gardasil 9) is simply not accepted by the public on the same level as other recommended vaccines?

Do the manufacturers and international health authorities re-examine the product to assess whether or not public concerns are valid? Not often, and when they do it is pretty much a cursory ‘investigation’ where they are quite careful to NOT look in the direction needed to expose any potential problems. What is wrong with this picture?

Could it have anything to do with the fact psychologists and psychiatrists have been studying how to manipulate public behavior for over 35 years?...

What is THCV and What are the Benefits of this Cannabinoid?

THCV, or tetrahydrocannabivarin, is a compound in cannabis that offers a unique array of effects and medical benefits that sets it apart from other cannabinoids like THC and CBD.

What are THCV’s Effects and Benefits?
As its name suggests, THCV is similar to THC in molecular structure and psychoactive properties, but it provides a variety of pronounced and altogether different effects.
THCV is psychoactive. It intensifies the euphoric high of THC, but with only about half the duration.
THCV is energetic. It provides a clear-headed, stimulating buzz.
THCV is an appetite suppressant. In contrast to THC, THCV dulls the appetite. This may be good for consumers focused on weight loss, but THCV should be avoided by patients treating appetite loss or anorexia.........

CBD Rich Strains

If you’re looking for the latest advances in medical cannabis, then you need to know about CBD rich strains. CBD is short for Cannabidiol. It is one of the many cannabinoids that make up the medicine's active healing properties. In order to qualify as "CBD Rich", the product must have more than 4% CBD. Research has identified CBD as the main ingredient responsible for inhibiting the growth of cancer cells. In addition, CBD shrinks tumors and inflammation. CBD is also good for reducing pain and helps with insomnia. It has significant analgesic, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory properties and helps in the reduction in anxiety and stress.

Special Report: Banishing Glyphosate

Underlying its success has been the repeated claim that the chemical is benign for human health, that its killing mechanism for plants works via an enzyme that does not exist in animals and is therefore safe for both human and animals. This claim goes counter to evidence that existed right from the start. Studies revealed both carcinogenicity and teratogenicity as far back as the 1980s, but were buried by industry with the support of regulatory bodies such as the US Environmental Protection Agency and the European Food Safety Authority (see Chapter 5 and [4] EU Regulators and Monsanto Exposed for Hiding Glyphosate Toxicity, SiS 51).

Meanwhile, overwhelming evidence of glyphosate toxicity across the globe has come to light. Everywhere, people are seeing steep rises in cancers, birth defects and other serious illnesses as glyphosate use increases. The World Health Organisation’s recent re-assessment of glyphosate as a ‘probable carcinogen’ vindicates the evidence witnessed by communities, researchers, doctors and campaigners for many years.

But the mission for this ICARUS is far simpler: the Pentagon wants to send drones on one-way trips. DARPA is seeking to address a “capability gap in eliminating the leave-behind of air vehicles used to deliver supplies to personnel on the ground without requiring pack-out. Such pack-out of these systems is cumbersome, time-consuming, and adds significant weight to the individuals’ loads,” officials wrote in the announcement. The program will last 26 months with about $8 million in funding.

After every mass shooting, you can expect the gun control crowd to make the same exact argument that they’ve been trying to make for decades. They will tell you that in every country with limited access to firearms, there are fewer firearm related deaths, both by homicide and by suicide. In most cases this is probably true, with the exception of a few crime ridden hell holes that would probably have a high crime rate, regardless of how many guns are legally available.

Nevada lawmaker wants study of medications prescribed to mass shooters

As the nation learns more about the mass-casualty shooter at a rural Oregon community college, a state lawmaker would like to learn more about drugs used to treat mental illness while one of Nevada's federal lawmakers says it is time for lawmakers to act to try to end mass shootings. . .

. . . Local Republican Assemblywoman Michele Fiore says that while a lot of people want to blame guns for mass shootings, she believes we need to take a look at psychiatric drug treatments prescribed to those struggling with mental illness.

Journalists have learned that the shooter's screen name on social media was "lithium love." Lithium is used as a psychiatric medication.

While there is no confirmation of medications that Harper-Mercer was prescribed, Fiore says with some drugs known to cause violence, suicidal and homicidal actions, we need more scientific proof that they work.

Top European Court Rules That NSA Spying Makes U.S. Unsafe For Data

These ineffective mass surveillance programs did nothing to make our country safer, but they did grave damage to the reputations of the American tech sector.”

Coming Soon from Big Pharma, Straight to Your Lazy Butt: “The World Needs Exercise Pills”

It is being reported that exercise pills are currently under development to save all the lazy couch potatoes from having to actually get up off the couch and stop watching Dancing with the Stars and football long enough to maintain circulation to a degree that they don’t appear dead to onlookers.

Pills going through animal trials as we speak are set to attempt to mimic physical activity. Things like burning fat, forming new blood vessels, reinvigorating old cells and enhancing muscle fibers.

While they could be curing cancer already or, say, helping to fix some of the downright toxic, endocrine disrupting, hormone mimicking issues we have in a world where our systems are inundated with industrial byproducts and thousands of chemicals daily, the scientists over at these pharmaceutical companies would rather appeal to utterly lazy people with a new wonder drug and replace the last bastion of actual physical activity a nearly entirely computer-driven society ever sees in a day.

Now Hillary Is Pushing for Laws so That Shooting Victims Can Sue Gun Manufacturers

Hillary is parading around the campaign trail with her new gun control initiatives; she’s already happily floating the idea that she’ll bypass Congress and pass gun control legislation with executive orders as president… and she’s not even the actual nominee yet (we know she will be, but still).

One bit of legislation she is pushing for will make it so that victims of gun violence and their families can sue gun manufacturers.

Yes. Because every company that makes any product in America should be afraid that at any moment, they will suddenly be held responsible and financially liable and possibly driven out of business if a random customer uses their product in an illegal manner.

Following that logic, here are some examples of legislation Hillary is not pushing for:

Did You Know You Also Have a Uniform Birth Number?

In Carroll Quigley’s 1966 book “Tragedy & Hope,” he discusses bluntly how our freedom will continuously dwindle throughout the remainder of the 20th century and beyond under a type of neofeudalism imposed by the burgeoning scientific dictatorship:

“Hopefully, the elements of choice and freedom may survive for the ordinary individual in that he may be free to make a choice between two opposing political groups (even if these groups have little policy choice within the parameters of policy established by the experts) and he may have the choice to switch his economic support from one large unit to another. But, in general, his freedom and choice will be controlled within very narrow alternatives by the fact that he will be numbered from birth and followed, as a number, through his educational training, his required military or other public service, his tax contributions, his health and medical requirements, and his final retirement and death benefits.”

VW scandal: Vehicles quarantined in NZ

Volkswagen's New Zealand division has quarantined 36 new vehicles with emissions-cheating diesel engines, but acknowledges there are likely to be hundreds more on our roads.

General manager Tom Ruddenklau says the company has halted the sale of 21 Tiguan SUVs and 15 Caddy vans, and is confident they are the only new VW vehicles in this country to have been caught up in the global scandal engulfing the German car-maker.

"Just to be on the safe side, we've isolated those from being sold until we've got a remedy - it's just something that's the responsible thing to do," he said this afternoon.

But he disclosed that there are likely to be hundreds of VW diesels of both those models and some others sold over several years in New Zealand fitted with the same four-cylinder EA 189 engine, although he was unable to identify those at this stage.

Smaller numbers of Audi and Skoda vehicles with the same engines were also likely to be affected.

Harvey Norman's 'revised' prices revised upwards

Some customers who believed they picked up dirt-cheap furniture deals in a Harvey Norman online sale say extra payments due to be deducted from their accounts have shot up.

The debacle surrounding the launch of Harvey Norman's "New Zealand's Biggest Retail Sale" intensified yesterday when the company confirmed it would not honour the deals.

Hundreds of super-cheap online deals on pricey furniture products were taken up between midnight and 8am on Thursday.

The near-330 people who took up the deals were later advised by email that the prices were the result of a "genuine error".

"All sales made during this period cannot be honoured," Harvey Norman wrote. "Our website terms and conditions state that we may accept or reject any offer to purchase made by you and that we have the right to correct any errors."

Affected customers have all been offered a refund and $100 voucher.

Harvey Norman won't honour bargain sales

Harvey Norman says it won't honour the sale of hundreds of furniture products sold at bargain basement prices yesterday, apparently due to a 'technical glitch' on its website.

The company last night emailed some customers stating that a "genuine error" occurred when it kicked off 'New Zealand's Biggest Retail Sale' online, which sold off some items for less than $100.

"We sincerely apologise for this error, which is currently being investigated.

"All sales made during this period cannot be honoured. Our website terms and conditions state that we may accept or reject any offer to purchase made by you and that we have the right to correct any errors."

The Commerce Commission, which can prosecute retailers under the Fair Trading Act, said a handful of complains about the Harvey Norman sale had been received.

'It's still going a bit nutty now': Customers' shock at Harvey Norman price glitch

A consumer watchdog is calling for Harvey Norman to honour sales contracts for hundreds of customers who picked up dirt cheap furniture deals online due to a technical pricing glitch.

Harvey Norman customers couldn't believe their luck yesterday morning when they noticed pricey lounge suites, dining table and chairs and other items selling for less than $100 after an apparent technical glitch on the company's website.

The furniture and appliance giant's 'New Zealand's Biggest Retail Sale' began after the clock turned midnight yesterday.

Those that happened to be on the website couldn't believe their eyes when they noticed lounge suites going for under $100, seven-seater dining suites going for $159 and other too-good-to-be-true bargains.

Dannevirke's Alex Lewis jumped on Facebook and saw a post from a member of the Farming Mums NZ page spreading the link.

Hershey Sued for Sourcing Cocoa from Suppliers That Use Child Slaves

The consumer rights law firm known as Hagens Berman filed a lawsuit against Hershey, Mars, and Nestlé on Monday, on the behalf of three California residents. The crux of the lawsuit suggests that these companies not only knowingly sourced their cocoa from farms in West Africa that used child labor (and in many cases, child slave labor) but that they broke California state law by failing to disclose this fact on the packaging of their products.

Essentially, they are suing for false advertising, and claim that they never would have purchased products from these companies if they knew how they were made. All three companies have since responded to the lawsuit, and have predictably claimed they are not guilty of any wrongdoing.

The Treasury Department said Thursday it would reach the debt limit a bit earlier than was expected by many on Capitol Hill. -- Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew told Congress in a new letter that thanks in part to lower-than-expected quarterly tax receipts, the extraordinary measures to forestall breaching the debt limit, combined with the new revenues, will run their course just a week after the resignation of Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, takes effect.

Consumers Need Lemon Laws to Cover Smart Meters Damage

By Catherine J. Frompovich

How come there are no Lemon Laws pertaining to Smart Meters for electric, natural gas and water meters that utility companies are forcing onto customers?

Monsanto ‘Deliberately Covered Up Data’ Proving Glyphosate is Cancerous for 4 Decades

What will it take to shut down Monsanto’s doors irrevocably? Likely it will be the same type of lawsuit that finally pulled the shades on the tobacco industry.

Apple Doesn’t Want You to Know Too Much About Our Drone Strikes

Evidently believing too much substantive information can be bad for business, this weekend Apple pulled a free app that catalogues and maps drone killings by the U.S. because it found its content “objectionable.” The Metadata+ app was developed by Intercept editor Josh Begley, who had to rework it five times to get past Apple’s restrictions on content – farts, cats, porn are just fine – for the App Store; ultimately, they only accepted it after Begley removed the word “drone” from it. The app listed the date, location and victims of American drone strikes, and buzzed users at each new strike. “I love my phone because it puts me at the center of the map,” Begley explained while developing the app. “But I’m not the center of the map. I can’t even pronounce the names of the places we’re bombing.”

Yet, they are just now finding their way onto television, where the audience is big though harder to target. As brands shift more of their spending to the Web where ads are more precise, the TV industry is pushing back.

Dutch website says it will trigger referendum on EU-Ukraine ties

Why Everyone Should Fight Their Traffic Tickets: Every Time

I have beaten over 15 traffic (revenue) tickets in California, including one in CA Superior Court of Appeals (without a lawyer.)
It is very important to remember the presumption of innocence in this country. So many people tend to think, perhhaps subconsciously, that when they "get a ticket" they just "have to pay it". When people ask why I am so adamant about fighting traffic tickets, I recount the incident which occurred in June 2001 that spawned my insistence on "pleading not guilty every time. . I obeyed the cop's orders to proceed to the checkpoint, and when I got there the cop manning the checkpoint sneered with a big grin on his face, "there's someone behind you". It was a motorcycle traffic cop, who proceeded to issue me a ticket for purportedly 'running a red light' (the same light that the first cop had demended we all go through.)

When Golf Clubs Kill — Federal Rule Ineffective in Curbing Conflict Minerals

The next time you purchase a phone or a Playstation, consider this: You may unwittingly be helping fund a civil war in Africa. If that bothers you and you wonder why this can occur, here’s the answer: Federal rules exist to prevent this — but they aren’t working. Gold, tin, tungsten and tantalum — known as “conflict minerals” — can be found in cars, consumer electronics, clothes, golf clubs, wedding rings, and thousands of other articles Americans use every day. Because a portion of these minerals are mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and adjoining countries, a region in which a bloody civil war has been fought for many years, there is always a risk that purchasing them will indirectly pay for weapons and prolong the conflict.

Volkswagen emissions scandal: Forty years of greenwashing - the well-travelled road taken by VW

Almost as soon as governments began testing vehicle emissions, carmakers found ways to cheat.

In the 1970s, some vehicles were found to be rigged with “defeat devices” that turned off the emission systems when the air-conditioning was on. Others had sensors that activated pollution controls only at the temperature regulators used during the tests.

“The concept of a defeat device has always been there, because there’s such an incentive for the manufacturers to cheat on the emissions tests,” said Clarence Ditlow at Washington’s Center for Auto Safety. Volkswagen “took it to another level of sophisticated deception we’ve never seen before”.

The scandal now engulfing VW, which has admitted to fitting cars with software designed to give false readings in emissions tests, is unique both for its size and digital complexity. But it’s not the first emissions-cheating case, even for the ?German giant itself.

In response, the Antelope Valley Schools Transportation Agency (AVSTA) has decided to implement an iris scanning program on special needs buses. So why do I think this is worth highlighting?

Car industry 'buried report revealing US car safety flaws over fears for TTIP deal'

The motor industry has been accused of withholding a report that reveals US cars are substantially less safe than European vehicles - for fear that the findings would hamper the drive to harmonise safety standards as part of the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal.

The major study was commissioned by the car industry to show that existing EU and US safety standards were broadly similar.

But the research actually established that American models are much less safe when it comes to front-side collisions, a common cause of accidents that often result in serious injuries.

The findings were never submitted – or publicly announced – by the industry bodies that funded the study.
