“Beautiful Israel” group misleads on “cooperation” with Greenpeace, WWF

A series of propaganda videos have been posted on the Internet as part of Israel’s contributions to Expo 2015, the world’s fair, which will kick off in Milan, Italy, on 1 May. Portraying Israel as committed to peace and protection of the environment, one such video boasts that Israel invented the solar water heater.

This attempt to draw attention to Israel’s record on renewable energy appears to be in keeping with the fair’s message of “sustainability.” Yet it also smacks of hypocrisy. Israel has issued orders to halt the installation of solar panels intended to benefit Palestinians in the occupied West Bank.

Is mass over-vaccination causing polio-like paralysis in children?

"The specific causes of this illness are still under investigation," says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about the rise of a so-called "mystery" disease that currently available evidence suggests may be caused by vaccines.

The media is referring to it as polio-like paralysis, a condition marked by nearly all the same symptoms as actual polio. But nobody is willing to actually call it polio because, according to the official story, polio has already been eradicated by vaccines.

So what's causing polio-like paralysis? Nobody knows, apparently. But a growing number of children are developing it, much to the chagrin of health authorities who are struggling to come up with an explanation for why children who should have been protected by vaccines are unable to move their limbs or walk.

Realtor feared the worst

This was my neighbor.He was a well liked man who had very little. A couple of beloved dogs a truck and his home. The Bank,The Wasco County Sheriff's department and the Oregon State Police took it all from him.
I don't believe much of the story that has come out. They did a 24 hour autopsy and declared him a suicide because he could have come out. Bull! They had him surrounded with machine guns a robot and an armored vehicle.They shot the house full of incendiary teargas. That's when the place went up. They say he shot one of his dogs but one dog was found near him him unshot.The other dog was found near the front door where the police tried to enter. They haven't produced a gun either.The whole thing stinks!

As soon as the bank told Dee Ashley last Friday that she had to give an eviction notice Monday to a man she’d seen declining for months, she had a gut feeling it would end badly.

MONSANTO SETTLES 7 LAWSUITS AFTER 2013 GMO-WHEAT SCARE

Agrochemical giant Monsanto has settled class action lawsuits with farmers in seven states over genetically modified wheat incident in 2013. Without any admission of liability the company will pay some $350,000 in donations to agricultural schools. The agricultural biotechnology corporation announced donations of $50,000 to agricultural schools in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi. The St. Louis based company also promised to reimburse a portion of the costs associated with the case. Monsanto said it can’t disclose how much that will cost.

5 Things to Know for Better Aquaponics

by Brian Berletic

Aquaponics is a combination of fish farming (aquaculture) and soilless agriculture (hydroponics). Fish are kept in a water tank, and above it is a growing bed. Water from the fish tank is pumped up to the growing bed where it filters through a growing medium and the roots of your plants, then back into the fish tank below.

The process filters the water for the fish, and the filtered fish waste provides nutrients for the plants.

While it seems simple in concept, when people finally try their hand at it, they may confront several common problems. This guide hopes to shed some light on a few of them...

'Defective' graphene makes for super-efficient fuel cells

Though graphene is noted for its beautiful symmetry, when you add a few warts and imperfections, it becomes more interesting -- specifically, it has the potential to make fuel cells better and cheaper. Scientists from Northwestern University and other institutions were toying with the material as a hydrogen fuel cell membrane, and found that by knocking out at least four carbon atoms from the normally pristine structure, it performed vastly better. A large number of protons (and nothing else) slipped through imperfections in the atom-thick material in just a few seconds, efficiently generating electricity.

The "defective" graphene membrane transports protons much faster and more selectively than standard fuel cell membranes, which tend to let too many impurities through. That could lead to less complicated, hyper-efficient fuel cell batteries for EVs and wind or solar power plants.

FLASHBACK - Fossil Microbes in Meteors

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As you know, I am partial towards the planet Mars in my astronomy interests, and continue to champion the recognition of Dr. Gilbert Levin as having detected indigenous life on Mars during the Viking missions.

As I ramp my animation business back up to pay my medical bills not covered by my Obamacare compliant health insurance I am working on a small documentary on Mars, during which I did a web search about the fossil microbes seen in a meteorite recovered in Antarctica determined to have originated from the planet Mars. This story briefly made the major news in 1966, then faded.

I was rather surprised to find out that there have been dozens of other papers published detailing separate cases where scientists have discovered microfossils that appear to be biological shapes that do not match anything known here on Earth inside of meteorites, primarily carbonaceous chondrites. Each paper is immediately followed by dismissive articles in the corporate media that ridicule the idea that there is any evidence for life elsewhere in the universe. Usually there is no refutation of the data, only comments like "Rubbish" provided by "authorities" eager to see their name in major media. Needless to say, funding to pursue the question of what these fossilized objects are is almost as rare as funding to study the coming ice age!

At the bottom of my article on Dr. Levin I drew a parallel between Europe's initial suppression of Marco Polo's discoveries in China (to preserve the power and authority of the church) and a very obvious institutional bias within NASA against confirmation of the Viking results. I observed that confirmation of life on other worlds would be a socially transformative event, leading humans to put down their weapons of war and unite together to find out who is out there. This would be a threat to those whose wealth and power rests on the machinery of endless wars.

But in looking at all these papers and all the micrographs, there is enough "smoke" here to wonder if we should not look for the fire, and if confirmation of extraterrestrial life has literally been under our feet all along!

Being released from the Chang’e 3 lander in December 2013, the small rover was expected to operate for three months, however, a fault within its motor control system rendered the vehicle stationary at the end of the mission’s second lunar day – no longer able to drive or actuate any of its moving parts such as its solar panels that were normally used to protect the rover’s body during the two-week long lunar nights to maintain thermal limits.

Hydrogen House project

Hydrogen House Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to the pursuit of clean and renewable solutions to help meet the world's increasing energy demand. Inventor Mike Strizki founded the organization to educate the public while conducting research on hydrogen and other clean energy technologies.

Hydrogen is the same element that fuels the Sun, and Mr. Strizki has retrofitted his home in Hopewell, New Jersey, to convert solar energy into hydrogen gas. The gas provides clean electricity by way of hydrogen fuel cells, and can be stored indefinitely. Strizki even runs his fuel cell car with the hydrogen his home system produces for free! Unlike fossil fuels that release CO2 and other emissions when burned, Strizki's clean energy systems require no oil or gas wells to be drilled, and emit only chemically pure water and oxygen... two things none of us can live without!

UPDATED MARCH 28 - PHOTOS OF DAM DRAINAGE AS IT HAPPENED - THE END of the California orange

The following photos are absolute proof they drained the dams on purpose, causing severe flooding and NEVER gave california growers a SINGLE DROP for the sole purpose of killing all the orange orchards, grape vineyards and almond groves. It is important to note that with any war effort waged by the usurpers of a conquored government, that fake documentation will be produced by the government to support the lie. That is when you have to use photos to prove that the documents, which show a drought and reduced out flows, are fake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While the evidence is compelling, I suspect a less nefarious and more alarming cause. It may be that California dams are starting to show signs of weakening, like we are seeing at the Boone Dam in Tennessee and indeed across the entire country. and they have to let the water out to prevent a complete collapse. This is a reminder that the drought in California is not caused by human-caused global warming but by the Federal Government neglecting to maintain the nation's critical infrastructure while spending tax money on wars, Wall Street, and Israel!

Is the sun going dark? Latest Nasa images reveal TWO giant holes - one covering almost 10% of the solar surface

Nasa has spotted a pair of huge 'holes' on the solar surface.

The larger coronal hole of the two, near the southern pole, covers an estimated 6 to 8-percent of the total solar surface, 142 billion miles - making it one of the largest polar holes scientists have observed in decades.

The smaller coronal hole, towards the opposite pole, is long and narrow, covering about 3.8 billion square miles on the sun - only about 0.16-percent of the solar surface.

'Coronal holes are lower density and temperature regions of the sun’s outer atmosphere, known as the corona,' explained Nasa.

Biodiversity or GMOs: Will The Future of Nutrition Be in Women's Hands or Under Corporate Control?

Women have been the primary growers of food and nutrition throughout history, but today, food is being taken out of our hands and substituted for toxic commodities controlled by global corporations. Monoculture industrial farming has taken the quality, taste and nutrition out of our food. As a result, India is facing a nutritional crisis: every fourth Indian goes hungry, and in 2011 alone, diabetes took the lives of 1 million Indians.

Now, the same companies who created the crisis are promising a miracle solution: GMOs (genetically modified organisms). Genetically engineered Golden Rice and GMO Bananas are being falsely promoted by corporations hiding behind the cloak of academia as a solution to hunger and malnutrition in the Global South. Indigenous biodiverse varieties of food grown by women provide far more nutrition than the commodities produced by industrial agriculture. Golden Rice is 350% less efficient in providing vitamin A than the biodiversity alternatives that women grow. GMO ‘iron-rich’ Bananas have 3 000% less iron than turmeric and 2 000 % less iron than amchur (mango powder). Apart from being nutritionally empty, GMOs are part of an industrial system of agriculture that is destroying the planet, depleting our water sources, increasing greenhouse gases, and driving farmers into debt and suicide through a greater dependence on chemical inputs. Moreover, these corporate-led industrial monocultures are destroying biodiversity, and we are losing access to the food systems that have sustained us for millennia. When we consider the number of patents involved in these initiatives, it becomes all too clear that the only beneficiaries of these supposedly ‘people-led’ ventures are large companies operating for profit, not for people.

Goats Fed GM Soybean Produce Abnormal Milk, Reduces Weight of Off-Spring

A new study finds that feeding goats the genetically modified (GM) glyphosate-tolerant soybean MON4-3-2 changes the composition of colostrum, the nutrient-rich first milk produced during pregnancy. Colostrum is ordinarily packed with proteins, vitamins as well as antibodies to protect the new-born against disease. Offspring from conventional and GM-fed mothers weigh the same at birth but those from GM-fed mothers weigh significantly less 30 days after birth. The researchers also discovered transgenic DNA in the milk of mothers fed the GM diet.

The work, published in Small Ruminant Research, led by Professor Lombardi at the University of Naples, Italy [1] should be seen in the light of recent discoveries of glyphosate herbicide in US mother’s breast milk at concentrations up to 1 600 times the legal limit allowed for single pesticides in EU drinking water [2]. The findings have important health implications, with the colostrum playing a well-known role in the short-term health and survival of both ruminant and human neonates. In addition to providing nutrients, antibodies present in colostrum are essential for the passive transfer of immunity to the offspring within the first 12-24 hours of life.......

A couple of days ago an American healthcare worker who had been definitively diagnosed with Ebola was brought back to the US for treatment at the National Institute of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. Eleven more patients have been isolated and are on their way to the United States as well, after having had “potential exposure” to the disease.

Now, about those people who were “potentially exposed”?

They aren’t being hospitalized. Oh no. They are being brought back to stay at hotels “near” three different hospitals in different regions of the country. I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

Pacific gray whales are migrating to the Atlantic ocean due to warming ocean temperatures

In May 2010, a whale showed up on the wrong side of the world.
A team of marine biologists was conducting a survey off the coast of Israel when they spotted it. At first they thought it was a sperm whale. But each time the animal surfaced, the more clearly they could see that it had the wrong anatomy. When they got back on land, they looked closely at the photographs they had taken and realized, to their shock, that it was a gray whale.

American scientists are trying to genetically modify human eggs

American scientists have attempted to modify the DNA of human egg cells using a new gene-editing technique that could eliminate inherited diseases from subsequent generations of affected families, The Independent can reveal.

The research was carried out on ovary cells taken from a woman with inherited ovarian cancer to investigate the possibility of eventually using gene-editing to produce IVF embryos free of the familial disease. The results are yet to be published.

Editing the chromosomes of human eggs or sperm to create genetically modified IVF embryos is illegal in Britain and many other countries because of concerns about safety and the possibility of the technique being used to create genetically enhanced “designer babies”.

Jay Leno is sick of government-mandated ethanol ruining his cars

As it turns out, ethanol is extremely corrosive to old car parts, and has been causing fires in vintage vehicles across the country. “As someone who collects old cars, and keeps them up religiously, I am now replacing fuel-pressure regulators every 12 to 18 months,” Leno writes.

He goes on to document the vast number of other problems he has thanks to the fuel—trouble starting cars, inhibited combustion, clogged fuel lines, blocked carburetor jets.

Leno notes that, in the end, this all amounts to propping up the corn industry:

The Failure of Modern Industrial Agriculture

Genetically engineered crops, inhumane treatment of farm animals, and routine feeding of antibiotics to confined animals—among many other problems—have eroded public trust in American agriculture. In response, the defenders of so-called modern agriculture have employed top public relations firms to try to clean up their tarnished public image. Their campaigns emphasize such issues as water quality, food safety, animal welfare, and “food prices and choices.”

Mounting public concerns in each of these areas are supported by a growing body of scientific evidence. For example, a 1998 EPA study found 35,000 miles of streams in 22 states polluted with biological wastes from concentrated animal feeding operations. The number of “impaired waters” in Iowa has tripled since the late 1980s, as industrial farming systems, such as factory farms, have replaced traditional family farms.

Natural gas: The fracking fallacy - The US is banking on decades of abundant natural gas to power its economic resurgence. That may be wishful thinking.

All of those investments are based on the expectation that US gas production will climb for decades, in line with the official forecasts by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). As agency director Adam Sieminski put it last year: “For natural gas, the EIA has no doubt at all that production can continue to grow all the way out to 2040.”

But a careful examination of the assumptions behind such bullish forecasts suggests that they may be overly optimistic, in part because the government's predictions rely on coarse-grained studies of major shale formations, or plays. Now, researchers are analysing those formations in much greater detail and are issuing more-conservative forecasts. They calculate that such formations have relatively small 'sweet spots' where it will be profitable to extract gas.

The results are “bad news”, says Tad Patzek, head of the University of Texas at Austin's department of petroleum and geosystems engineering, and a member of the team that is conducting the in-depth analyses. With companies trying to extract shale gas as fast as possible and export significant quantities, he argues, “we're setting ourselves up for a major fiasco”.

The oil glut and low prices reflect an affordability problem

For a long time, there has been a belief that the decline in oil supply will come by way of high oil prices. Demand will exceed supply. It seems to me that this view is backward–the decline in supply will come through low oil prices.

The oil glut we are experiencing now reflects a worldwide affordability crisis. Because of a lack of affordability, demand is depressed. This lack of demand keeps prices low–below the cost of production for many producers. If the affordability issue cannot be fixed, it threatens to bring down the system by discouraging investment in oil production.

Explosive: yet another corrupt judge in the Maui vs. Monsanto case?Mar13

Last Election Day, the voters on Maui passed a resolution to temporarily stop Monsanto and Dow from continuing their toxic GMO and pesticide experiments in the “open-air laboratory” of Maui.

Monsanto and Dow sued immediately to nullify the will of the people. Since then, the case has been hung up in the courts.

A few months ago, I exposed the fact that the federal judge handling the case, Barry Kurren, was compromised, because his wife, Faye, was involved with an environmental group that had accepted huge money from Dow.

Judge Kurren, for whatever reasons, is no longer on the case. The sitting judge now is Susan Oki Mollway.

It’s all good now, right?

Israel seeks to destroy neighbours’ histories and identities

This would not be the first time that the Israelis have endeavoured to destroy historical and cultural artifacts in order to bolster their territorial claims and to eradicate inconvenient elements of the past.

In 2003, in an article headed “Pillaging 7000 Years Of Iraq History No Accident” sub-heading “The Sacking Of Iraq’s Museums – US Wages War Against Culture And History”, Patrick Martin wrote in Rense.com that “US claims to have been taken by surprise by the ransacking of cultural facilities in Baghdad, Mosul and other cities are not credible. Such a tragedy was not only predictable, it was specifically warned against. . . . Attacking the cultural resources that connect the Iraqi people to 7,000 years of history is part of the process of systematically destroying their national identity.”

Vicious vaccine culture war now being waged against informed, intelligent Americans who seek to protect their children from deadly side effects

As this article exhaustively documents and reveals, the vaccine war taking place in America today is actually a "culture war" pursued by the most irrational and intellectually dishonest Big Pharma operatives, bloggers and journalists ever witnessed in recent memory. These people -- the "vaccine pushers" -- ignore real science and use wildly dishonest tactics of fear mongering, social shaming and blatant lying about scientific facts to demonize informed parents and attempt to criminalize those who pose intelligent, scientific questions about vaccine safety.

In this way, U.S. doctors, vaccine patent holders (such as Paul Offit), legislators and health regulators are marching America right down the path of medical crimes against humanity -- the very same thing we once witnessed carried out by scientists operating under the Nazi regime in Germany.

The medical mafia and the governments of ‘civilized’ nations have forced other children to have chemotherapy against their will. Can you imagine losing all rights to care for a sick child and having to sit idly by – or in jail – while the system dictates what is in the best interest of your progeny?

The laws clearly need to change. No government should be able to own your children and decide what is right for them – especially in light of the child sex abuse claims just now coming to the surface involving congress members and the UK parliament. Though there have been whistleblowers for years now. Are these really the people we want making medical decisions about our children?

The Maui GMO ban, human experimentation, and war crimes

To summarize: in the last election, the voters of Maui, in a ballot measure, decided to place a temporary ban on further Dow/Monsanto GMO/pesticide experiments in Maui County.

Immediately, Monsanto, Dow, and yes, even the County government of Maui (betraying their own voters), lined up against the results of the vote.

Monsanto and Dow, joined by the Maui County government, sued to nullify the results of the vote, claiming the regulation of GMOs comes under the control of the state of Hawaii and the federal government, and can’t be decided at the county level.

That’s where we are now. The voters’ demands are suspended in limbo. Their legal call for an independent commission to investigate the practices of Monsanto and Dow in Maui County, and decide whether they threaten the people and the land—that urgent call has been silenced for the time being.

One half of that equation deals with the potential for solar flares, or coronal mass ejections, and other extreme space weather events to cause interruptions in Earth’s magnetosphere, in turn creating electrical discharges that have the potential to disrupt satellites orbiting the planet, and trigger outages in the electrical grid and most of the electronic devices on earth’s surface.

GENERAL MILLS SUED FOR DUMPING 15,000 GALLONS OF CANCER CHEMICALS INTO AIR AND WATER

Unlike Pepsi Co, which recently got let loose from a class action lawsuit concerning a carcinogen used in soda, a class action lawsuit against the maker of Cheerios, Yoplait yogurt, and Pillsbury cinnamon rolls was just certified by a federal judge.
Minneapolis residents claim that General Mills polluted their air and water with more than 15,000 gallons of carcinogenic solvents that have seeped into homes.

General Mills (GM) makes hundreds of foods that most Americans are used to eating on a daily basis, but the company obviously has little concern for the health of the mouths they make millions from.

Plaintiffs in the class action suit claim that GM released trichloroethylene – a chemical used to extract vegetable oils from plant materials – into the area around its former facility in Minneapolis. The company disposed approximately 15,000 gallons of chemical solvents into the air and water supply.

Dr. Lorne Everett, an expert for the citizens of Minneapolis states that:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that the plaintiffs are successful in this case, and that GM gets its hat handed to it, financially.

I also hope this comes out of the hides of every GM executive who blithely signed off on this, to the point that somebody, or several people go to jail, and that it is not a financial penalty only.

Because it is only when culpable executives are imprisoned (and not in a "Club Fed") for their crimes that behaviour like this will stop.

No Opting Out of Vaccinations Under Proposed California Bill

With the debate over vaccines reaching a fever pitch, it’s only logical a bill on the subject would hit the legislature, and one has. SB 277, introduced in late February, would remove exemptions from existing law that allow parents to forego having their children immunized for personal beliefs.

Altered Genes, Twisted Truth—How GMOs Took Over the Food Supply

Genetically manipulated foods may be one of the most serious threats not only to our environment but to the health and very survival of future generations. Typically, the blame for the promulgation of genetic engineering of our food is placed on chemical companies.

But there’s actually a hidden back story to how genetically engineered foods were able to reach millions of dinner tables.

Steven Druker, who you may not be aware of, is the attorney who filed a lawsuit in the late ’90s challenging the most important action the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has taken in this area: its presumption that genetically engineered (GE) foods are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) and can enter the market without a shred of safety testing.

EU to lift ban on importing chicken from the U.S. which has been washed in controversial acid disinfectant

The EU is set to lift a ban on imports of chicken from the United States which are washed with a suspect acid disinfectant.

American producers routinely wash raw chicken following slaughter with a substance called peroxyacetic acid (PAA) to remove harmful bacteria.

The practice has been banned in Britain and Europe for many years because of a determination to remove harmful bugs at source, rather than using disinfectants to clean up carcasses.

There are also concerns that reliance on these washes could put consumers at risk by playing a part in the creation of superbugs.

However, the European Commission has signalled that it plans to lift the ban following pressure from the American government and US chicken producers.
