Before His Death, Father Of ADHD Admitted It Was A Fictitious Disease

The purpose all along for pathologizing ADHD symptoms, of course, was to generate more profits for the drug industry. According to the citizen watchdog group Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI), roughly 20 million American children today are taking dangerous, but expensive, psychiatric drugs for made-up behavioral conditions like ADHD. And another one million or so children have been blatantly and admittedly misdiagnosed with phony behavioral conditions for which psychiatric medications are being prescribed.

"Remember, there are two ways drug companies can make money: Invent new drugs, and invent new diseases already invented drugs can treat," writes Dr. Jay Parkinson, M.D., M.P.H., about the fake disease-creation industry.

'Life could exist on Mars': Analysis of 1.3 billion-year-old meteorite suggests that the red planet is STILL habitable

Fresh studies on a meteorite that landed on Earth more than a century ago have reignited the debate about the possibility of life on Mars.

The 1.3 billion-year-old Nakhla meteorite seems to contain a feature that could have been created by a biological process or in water under the Martian surface.

While not direct evidence of life on Mars, the feature suggests that large asteroids hit Mars in the past, possibly creating conditions where life could survive.

MIT Scientist Discover Monsanto’s RoundUp Causes Autism

By 2025, half the kids born in the U.S. will be diagnosed with autism, according to Dr. Stephanie Seneff, Senior Research Scientist at the MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory. She, like many others says autism isn’t just genetic – it is almost surely due to environmental factors. Just a couple of those factors are Monsanto’s RoundUp (glyphosate) and heavy exposure to a cocktail of heavy metals, including aluminum.

Hundreds of girls taken to hospital after mass fainting spell linked to cervical cancer vaccine hits Colombia

A mystery illness has overwhelmed a small town in northern Colombia as scores of teenage girls have been hospitalized with symptoms that parents fear could be an adverse reaction to a popular vaccine against cervical cancer.

Authorities say they still don't know what caused more than 200 girls in El Carmen de Bolivar to come down with symptoms ranging from fainting to numbness in the hands and headaches.

Some have hinted that the town of 95,000 near Colombia's Caribbean coast could be experiencing a rare case of mass hysteria.

Parents are on edge however because all the girls, ranging in ages from 9 to 16, were injected in recent months with the vaccine Gardasil. On Wednesday, residents marched peacefully to demand a thorough investigation.

Children across the country being hospitalized with the 'open border flu'

The rarely-seen Enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), which has been sending children to emergency rooms in several mid-western states, has now made its way to the East Coast, as confirmed cases in Connecticut and New York have been reported in the last few days. Though the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has yet to make it official, several other states along the eastern seaboard are reporting outbreaks of the virus as well.

EV-D68, which was first identified in California in 1962, can cause mild flu-like symptoms with a runny nose, fever and body aches. However, it can also send its victims into severe respiratory distress, as has been seen in New York, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky and Missouri, according to the CDC.

ASCE Journals refuse to correct fraudulent paper they published on WTC collapses

(ASCE: American Society of Civil Engineers)

By Tony Szamboti and Richard Johns

In January 2011 one of the ASCE Journals (the Journal of Engineering Mechanics) published a paper by Jia-Liang Le and Zdenek Bazant entitled “Why the Observed Motion History of the World Trade Center Towers is Smooth”. This paper attempted to calculate the velocity loss of the falling upper section of WTC 1, when it landed on the first intact story,and claimed that this ‘jolt’ (loss of velocity) would be too small to observe. This conclusion is unsound, as it is based on assumptions about the tower that conflict with information provided in the NIST reports on 9/11 and contains internal contradictions and inconsistencies . A Discussion paper pointing out these problems was submitted to the same journal in May 2011, but after keeping the paper in review for 27 months the journal’s editors finally declined it in August 2013 on the grounds that it is “out of scope” for the journal. The following is a summary of the events surrounding these papers.

Conditions Set for IMF Loan for Ukraine Facilitate Cultivation of GMO Crops

Like any lender, the IMF makes conditions when it loans money. In most countries, the IMF insists on at least the opening up of markets to foreign companies. With a bankrupt economy, Ukraine will only welcome foreign investment in its agriculture. Under article 404 of the Associative Agreement that Ukraine has signed with the EU, the country agrees to cooperate ‘to extend the use of biotechnologies’, which is the Monsanto euphemism for GMOs crops.

Cultivation of GMO crops was banned in Ukraine right up until the present leaders took power in Kiev. American GMO companies can now start large-scale cultivation of GMO modified crops, and establish a back door into the EU, where growing such crops is banned in most countries. For reasons best known to the corporations involved, hardly a word about this has been printed in world’s mainstream press.

3 More NW Illinois Counties Show Insect Resistance to Monsanto's GMO Bt Corn

Five counties in northwestern Illinois have now shown resistance in western corn rootworms to Monsanto's GMO "Cry3Bb1" Bt protein. This trend of pest insects evolving resistance is expected to continue throughout the corn belt region of the Midwestern U.S., the result raising prices at the supermarkets. The recommendation is to avoid consumption of any and all corn products not specifically labeled "non-GMO" though even these are questionable due to pollen resistance. Humans will take longer developing resistance to GMO Bt toxins than the corn rootworm beetles and can expect long term health problems if GMO corn is ingested regularly.

Long list of virologists mysteriously being killed or 'suicided'

Since 2004, a string of scientists have died, many under mysterious circumstances, and now some in the alternative media have begun asking why.

The most recent scientist was found dead after a strange disappearance, but he wasn't just any scientist: He was employed not by academia but by the federal government's National Institutes of Health in Maryland, according to a website called All News Pipeline, which has been tracking and reporting the strange deaths.

The recently deceased, Dr. Martin John Rogers, specialized in tropical diseases, the website reported, and malaria in particular. "This death alone, despite the mysterious circumstances, normally wouldn't be of note if it wasn't for the long... very long list of dead scientists already documented since 2004," the website reported.

Boulder District Judge D.D. Mallard had ruled that Longmont's ban constitutes an "irreconcilable conflict" with the state’s interests in oil and gas interests, and that the state takes precedence over the local ruling.

5 Examples Show That The CDC Is Corrupt And Dangerous

by Christina England

Over the years, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has repeatedly deceived and lied to the public, yet they continue to state that their mission is to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S.

They boldly announce on their website that the “CDC increases the health security of our nation. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise,” and yet there is more and more evidence to suggest that their so called ‘scientific evidence’ has been skewed and deliberately tampered with to gain the desired results...

Vaccines as Biological Weapons? Live Avian Flu Virus Placed in Baxter Vaccine Materials Sent to 18 Countries

There's a popular medical thriller novel in which a global pandemic is intentionally set off by an evil plot designed to reduce the human population. In the book, a nefarious drug company inserts live avian flu viruses into vaccine materials that are distributed to countries around the world to be injected into patients as "flu shots." Those patients then become carriers for these highly-virulent strains of avian flu which go on to infect the world population and cause widespread death.

There's only one problem with this story: It's not fiction. Or, at least, the part about live avian flu viruses being inserted into vaccine materials isn't fiction. It's happening right now.

9/11 hero fighting for his life after being diagnosed with cancer ‘caused by exposure to toxic fumes at Ground Zero’

Hero firefighter Jimmy Martinez was off duty when he saw the first aircraft crash into the World Trade Center 13 years ago before racing to his assigned station house in Staten Island.

Now the 24-year veteran is facing a life-or-death battle with a rare form of blood cancer, which he believed was caused by breathing toxic dust from the scene of the disaster. Such was the rush to get to Ground Zero, many of Martinez's colleagues didn't even have basic safety equipment such as masks or respirators.

The 54-year-old firefighter was diagnosed last year with multiple myeloma in June 2013 and now needs a lifesaving bone marrow transplant.

Experts Dispute the Potential for the Ebola Virus to Go Airborne

Health experts continue to dispute the question of whether or not the Ebola virus disease could mutate to spread in an airborne manner. Regarding the current outbreak, there have been no documented incidents that would suggest the virus has been transmitted in any way other than direct contact and bodily fluids, but experts like Michael Osterholm, warn that it could potentially mutate into an airborne form. The idea stems from the knowledge that virus mutate, and that different strains of the Ebola virus may have spread though air in the past.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over time, pathogens evolve towards stable and benign forms. An illness that immediately kills its host is less likely to survive and propagate than one that only makes their host mildly ill, or produces no symptoms at all. Extreme lethality and rapid mutation are signs of a brand new organism, and given that no natural source for Ebola has ever been found, raises the possibility that Ebola is an artificial creation either deliberately crafted as a depopulation tool, or accidentally created by a lab accident (as I suspect was the case with the AIDs virus).

'Real risk' Ebola virus will mutate to become an AIRBORNE disease, expert warns

As the Ebola outbreak rampages through Africa scientists are privately concerned the virus could mutate to become airborne, one expert has warned.

So far 2,300 people have lost their lives to the disease with more than 4,300 cases recorded in West Africa in the last six months - the worst outbreak since the disease was discovered in 1976.

The World Health Organisation has warned there may be thousands of new cases each week in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Nigeria by early October.

Fifteen countries could be hit by the outbreak - putting the lives of 22 million people at risk, a new study has revealed.

Flashback: W.H.O Murdered Africa through AIDS by Dr William Campbell Douglass

In his report W.H.O. MURDERED AFRICA, Dr. William Campbell Douglass said that the AIDS virus was bioengineered in a laboratory to kill and then used in experiments in Africa. AIDS in Africa was the result of the smallpox eradication vaccine program conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) during the 1970s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much of the facts are accurate, however while I agree that the smallpox vaccination campaign triggered the AIDS epidemic, I am of the opinion that the creation of the virus was an accident caused by very sloppy conditions in the local African laboratories where the vaccine was being manufactured, in which blood from cows with both coxpos and bovine leukemia was cultured on livers from sheep carrying the sheep Visna virus. The HIV virus bears striking similarities to both bovine leukemia and sheep Visna virus and appears to be a hybrid of the two.

these are the game changers, the seemingly unique and rare set of events that will suddenly convince a large number of people to get involved, people who steadfastly opposed getting involved up to that point.

Want Fries With That? Nuclear Waste-Eating Bacteria Discovered

Scientists at the University of Manchester may have found a novel way to dispose of nuclear waste: unleash bacteria that love to devour it.

The bacteria don’t seem to have a name yet, but the researchers group them with “extremophile” bacteria, which live in environments once thought to be uninhabitable. In fact, bacteria that devour waste aren’t new: What’s new is that the waste these bacteria eat is radioactive.

Changing from GMO to Non-GMO Soy in Denmark: Healthier, more productive pigs, more profit, and much less birth deformities

I had read about the effects that GM feed has on rats in lab experiments (see [1] GM Soya Fed Rats: Stunted, Dead, or Sterile, SiS 33), so I decided to change the feed from GM to non-GM soy in April 2011 without telling the herdsman on the farm. Two days afterwards, he said to me: “You have changed the food.” He always notices whenever there is any problem with the feed and tells me. This time was different. Something very good was happening with the food as the pigs were not getting diarrhoea any more. The farm was saving 2/3 of the medicine or £7.88 per sow; not just my farm but three other farms in Denmark that switched from GMO to non GMO feed have also seen the same. Medication after the changeover in the weaners barn also went down dramatically by 66 %, with one type of antibiotics not being used since.

The sows have higher milk production; we can tell because the sows are suckling 1, 2 or 3 more piglets and have more live born pigs, on average 1.8 piglets more per sow. They wean 1,8 pigs more pr. litter, and have more live born pigs. We have seen a certain aggressive diarrhoea disappear altogether that affected young piglets in the first week of life, killing up to 30 % of the pigs.

Martial law: Sierra Leone orders citizens to stay confined to homes for three days to combat Ebola spread

Increasingly, as the Ebola virus continues to spread and kill, authorities in Africa are becoming more authoritarian in their attempts to contain the deadly disease — steps that look eerily similar to those imposed on Americans in the days following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and which could be imposed again were Ebola to make it to the U.S.

30 Million Americans On Antidepressants And 21 Other Facts About America’s Endless Pharmaceutical Nightmare

Has there ever been a nation more hooked on drugs than the United States? And I am not just talking about illegal drugs – the truth is that the number of Americans addicted to legal drugs is far greater than the number of Americans addicted to illegal drugs. As you will read about below, more than 30 million Americans are currently on antidepressants and doctors in the U.S. wrote more than 250 million prescriptions for painkillers last year. Sadly, most people got hooked on these drugs very innocently.

5 ways you pay more for health insurance

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - Workers with solo coverage now pay an average of $1,081 in annual premiums, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation/Health Research & Educational Trust report released Wednesday. That's up a whopping 8.1% from a year ago.

Looking at health care costs today versus a decade ago is telling. Not only are workers paying more in premiums, they are picking up more of the tab at the doctor's office and pharmacy. This is one way that companies are keeping premium hikes under control.

Guatemala rejects 'Monsanto Law' that would have given multinational seed companies control over agriculture

New legislation dubbed the "Monsanto Law" has been roundly rejected by activist groups and citizens in Guatemala, who argue that it has put the nation's food security and farm economy in jeopardy.

The law, formerly called "Law for the Protection of New Plant Varieties," was approved by the Guatemalan congress June 10, but has been widely panned since. Supporters say it is designed to protect the intellectual property of plant breeders who were deemed to have "created" or "discovered" new plant varieties, or who have genetically modified existing varieties.

The law effectively permits "breeders" -- which are typically biotech giants like Monsanto -- to obtain property rights over the use of plant varieties, in the form of both plants and seeds.

These People Reversed Diabetes In 30 Days With One Simple Change

by Joe Martino

Diabetes is one of the most rampant diseases of our time. According to the American Diabetes Association, in 2012, 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, had diabetes.

According to the current mainstream approach, the major goal in treating diabetes is to minimize any elevation of blood sugar (glucose) without causing abnormally low levels of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes is treated with insulin, exercise, and a diabetic diet. Type 2 diabetes is treated first with weight reduction, a diabetic diet, and exercise. Currently the belief is “Diabetes is a chronic disease that has no cure. – The American Diabetes Association.

But what if we could not only prevent diabetes before it happened, but also reverse it once it shows up?

NATO intends to prohibit Russia’s and China’s Development

The glitzy NATO summit in Newport has not publicly announced major decisions but it is likely that they were taken in secret. To prevent Russia and China - but also India - from continuing their development, NATO can count on Terrorism from the Islamic Emirate which it pretends to condemn and fight.

Moreover, contrary to its name, NATO is not an alliance of equals, but a subjugation of partner armies by the United States and the United Kingdom. Indeed, all member armies of this supposed "alliance" are under the command of a single US officer who is also commander of American forces in Europe-while the secret service of NATO, the "Gladio", under the joint authority of Washington and London, ensures that the anti-imperialists never come to power in the other Member States [2]. To do this, NATO has not skimped on political killings, nor even coups (in France [3], Italy, Greece, Cyprus and Turkey).

The End of Fracking Is Closer Than You Think

Working with the Post Carbon Institute, a sustainability think-tank, Hughes meticulously analyzed industry data from 65,000 US shale oil and natural gas wells that use the much-ballyhooed extraction method of hydraulic fracturing, colloquially known as fracking. The process involves drilling horizontally as well as vertically, and then pumping a toxic cocktail of pressurized water, sand, and chemicals deep underground in order to break apart the rock formations that hold deposits of oil and gas.

Hughes found that the production rates at these wells decline, on average, 85 percent over three years.

"Typically, in the first year there may be a 70 percent decline," Hughes told VICE News. "Second year, maybe 40 percent; third year, 30 percent. So the decline rate is a hyperbolic curve. But nonetheless, by the time you get to three years, you're talking 80 or 85 percent decline for most of these wells."

Number of Ebola cases is 'increasing exponentially,' World Health Organization warns

In a recent announcement, WHO warned that the numbers appear to show an exponential increase in infections across West Africa, and that things will get worse before getting better. Underscoring the unusual spread of the disease, experts say Ebola is particularly problematic in the larger cities, and especially in those where public health facilities are lacking.

But the situation is most extreme in Liberia, where entire communities are facing rapid infection due to poor containment measures and a lack of medical personnel. According to data compiled by WHO, some 152 healthcare workers in Liberia are known to have contracted Ebola, and 79 of them have already died.

Liberia was already lacking in adequate medical personnel prior to the outbreak, with only about one doctor available for every 100,000 people. In a country of 4.4 million people, this is a major problem, especially as the death toll mounts and infected individuals have nowhere to turn for treatment and quarantine.

Ebola is threatening Liberia's 'national existence' says defence minister… and now the first suspected case of the disease reaches Italy

Liberia's national existence is 'seriously threatened' by the deadly Ebola virus that is 'spreading like wild fire and devouring everything in its path,' the country's national defence minister told the United Nations Security Council.

'Liberia is facing a serious threat to its national existence. The deadly Ebola virus has caused a disruption of the normal functioning of our State,' said Liberian Minister of National Defense Brownie Samukai.

'It is now spreading like wild fire, devouring everything in its path. The already weak health infrastructure of the country has been overwhelmed,' he told the 15-member council, adding that the initial international response was 'less than robust.'

Meanwhile, it's thought that Ebola has now reached Italy, after a Nigerian woman resident there was hospitalised on Tuesday with symptoms consistent with the virus.

Ashkenazi Jews Descend From 350 People, Scientists Say

There may be no such thing as a Jewish gene, but communities can definitely have defining characteristics, and one such community is Jews with roots in central and eastern Europe.

A model based on the genetic sequencing of 128 Ashkenazi Jews concludes that today’s Ashkenazim descend from the fusion of European and Middle-Eastern Jews during the medieval era, between 600 to 800 years ago.

The math also indicates that today’s sprawling community of Ashkenazi Jews — there are more than 10 million around the world — derived from just 350 people or so. That previously postulated population bottleneck — a drastic reduction in population size — occurred between 25 to 32 generations ago, the scientists say.

Media Attacks Directed against the Critics of Biotechnology and Genetically Modified Agriculture

Europeans seek GMO-related horror stories to justify our beliefs or “phobias,” according to Shahane. He argues that no other story does the job as well as the tale of poor Indians driven to suicide by the “evil Monsanto corporation.” Our irrational fear of GMOs is given added impetus by the scaremongering, anti-capitalist, anti-science stance of Vandana Shiva.
`
Europeans do not need to listen to Vandana Shiva to be aware that GMOs constitute a systemic health risk to entire populations. We do not need shock-horror tales of mass suicide to fuel genuine concerns.

Shahane’s article lacks credibility on many levels, one of which is foolishly resorting to the claim that Europeans exhibit a phobia over GMOs. He might like to acquaint himself with what Europe’s approach to GMOs is based on: the precautionary principle. This implies there is a good chance that GMOs may pose widespread harm to the entire population if released for public consumption [1]. There is enough evidence to suggest that this could be the case [2,3,4]. As the risk is systemic, adequate testing should thus be carried out before GMOs are sanctioned.

Starting today (September 9, 2014) through October 5, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth is sponsoring a massive billboard in the heart of Times Square that will show video of 7 World Trade Center’s destruction to millions of viewers and refer them to the campaign website, ReThink911.org.

Towering above the intersection of West 42nd Street and 8th Avenue, the two-sided 90 ft. x 45 ft. billboard will display the 15-second ad once every two minutes for four weeks, reaching an estimated 105,000 adults each day, and approximately 3 million during the four-week campaign.

The goal of the ReThink911 campaign is to spark public dialogue around the little-known destruction of WTC 7, which polls in recent years have found nearly half of all Americans and one-third of all New Yorkers do not even know occurred.

An inventory of potentially deadly pathogens at Fort Detrick's infectious disease laboratory found more than 9,000 vials that had not been accounted for, Army officials said yesterday, raising concerns that officials wouldn't know whether dangerous toxins were missing.

After four months of searching about 335 freezers and refrigerators at the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases in Frederick, investigators found 9,220 samples that hadn't been included in a database of about 66,000 items listed as of February, said Col.

Supermarkets In Germany Force Poultry Industry To Ditch GMO Feed.

Score one for the anti-GMO crowd. European consumers have long expressed disdain toward eating meat that was fed Genetically Modified feed. In response, the German market has forced the poultry industry to adhere to the customer's demand for non-GMO foods. Awesome! It's too bad this hasn't happened in the US yet.

On August 28th, the German Poultry Association (ZDG) announced that it would stop using GMO feed for chicken meat and eggs. It'll go into effect January 1st, 2015. Earlier this year, it was revealed that ZDG was breaking its commitment to using non-GMO soybeans because of a shortage. Brazil, the main supplier of soybeans, cut non-GMO soybean production by 50% due to legal issues with unmodified crops being pollinated by modified crops. This put farmers at risk of being sued.

Ebola evacuations to US greater than previously known

An undisclosed number of people who’ve been exposed to the Ebola virus — not just the four patients publicly identified with diagnosed cases — have been evacuated to the U.S. by an air ambulance company contracted by the State Department.

“We moved a lot of other people who had an exposure event,” said Dent Thompson, vice president of Phoenix Air Group. “Many times these people are just fine, they just had an exposure. But you have to treat it as though the disease is present.”

How many exposed patients have been flown from West Africa to the U.S.? Thompson said medical privacy laws and his company’s contract with the State Department prevent him from revealing the figure.

“I’m not avoiding it,” Thompson told Yahoo News. “I’m just not allowed to talk about it.”

FLASHBACK - What are US biowar researchers doing in the Ebola zone?

This is a call for an immediate, thorough, and independent investigation of Tulane University researchers and their Fort Detrick associates in the US biowarfare research community, who have been operating in West Africa during the past several years.

What exactly have they been doing?

Exactly what diagnostic tests have they been performing on citizens of Sierra Leone?

Why do we have reports that the government of Sierra Leone has recently told Tulane researchers to stop this testing?

Have Tulane researchers and their associates attempted any experimental treatments (e.g., injecting monoclonal antibodies) using citizens of the region? If so, what adverse events have occurred?

The research program, occurring in Sierra Leone, the Republic of Guinea, and Liberia---said to be the epicenter of the 2014 Ebola outbreak---has the announced purpose, among others, of detecting the future use of fever-viruses as bioweapons.

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused 'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

Florida Newspaper Touts “Smart Meters”, Ignores Scientific Data

James F. Tracy
Activist Post

In a recent editorial, “Smart-Meter Phobia Sad, But Don’t Cut Power,” the Palm Beach Post hyped safety claims of Florida Power and Light / Next Era Energy accompanying the utility’s statewide “smart meter” deployment while condemning the roughly 6,000 Florida households that have declined such technology.

The Post often weighs in on regional and state affairs with a discriminating editorial voice. In this instance, however, the paper’s editorial staff has chosen to ignore hard scientific data that clearly lay out the health-related dangers of exposure to the non-ionizing microwave radiation emitted by smart meters and similar wireless technologies.

Indeed, the Post’s editorial reads almost as if it was authored by FPL’s own public relations department, for it is replete with most every poorly-conceived and quasi-scientific claim the utility transmits to its broad customer base...

Speculation Mounts Over What's Inside The Biggest Ancient Tomb Ever Found In Greece

Two stunning caryatid statues have been unearthed holding up the entrance to the biggest ancient tomb ever found in Greece, archaeologists said.

The two female figures in long-sleeved tunics were found standing guard at the opening to the mysterious Alexander The Great-era tomb near Amphipolis in the Macedonia region of northern Greece.

"The left arm of one and the right arm of the other are raised in a symbolic gesture to refuse entry to the tomb," a statement from the culture ministry said Saturday.

Speculation is mounting that the tomb, which dates from Alexander's lifetime (356 to 323 B.C.), may be untouched, with its treasures intact.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I recall, they have never actually found the tomb of Alexander the Great himself! There is a collapsed marble structure in Alexandria that local tradition says is his final resting place, but it is rather austere for a royal tomb. This find in Macedonia may prove more interesting!

Here it is: how the US government admits vaccines cause autism

Here is the key quote. Follow the circuitous language:

“The government has never compensated, nor has it ever been ordered to compensate, any case based on a determination that autism was actually caused by vaccines. We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.”

Official word-play at work.

Compensation for vaccine-induced autism? No. Compensation for vaccine-induced encephalopathy—“accompanied by” symptoms including autistic behavior and autism? Yes.

The government is paying compensation for a vaccine-induced “something” that just happens to progress to an array of symptoms which include, well, autistic behavior, and yes, autism.

U.S. Military to Provide Equipment, Resources to Battle Ebola Epidemic in Africa

President Obama said Sunday that the U.S. military will begin aiding what has been a chaotic and ineffective response to the Ebola epidemic in West Africa, arguing that it represents a serious national security concern.

The move is a significant ramp up in the U.S. response and comes as the already-strained military is likely to be called upon further to address militant threats in the Middle East. The decision to involve the military in providing equipment and other assistance for international health workers in Africa comes after mounting calls from some unlikely groups — most prominently the international medical group Doctors Without Borders — demonstrating to the White House the urgency of the issue.

“We’re going to have to get U.S. military assets just to set up, for example, isolation units and equipment there,” he said, “to provide security for public health workers surging from around the world.”??

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This appears to be the fulfillment of that old adage, "Never let a good crisis go to waste".

The answers to the ebola outbreak are medical and scientific; not military.

Is the military presence a "Trojan Horse", and a springboard for more US exploitation and profit from the many natural resources Africa still possesses?!?

My hunch would be, yes.

And as to those "isolation units" the US would allegedly be setting up there; will the price of not wanting to stay in those units be death by US military assault rifle?!? The US military is VERY good at that.

Rosetta's comet has no ice and is ‘darker than charcoal’: 'Surprising' discovery made after probe sends back its first report

Instead of imaging a bright, ice-covered comet, the probe’s instruments have detected that 67P is in fact darker than charcoal in some wavelengths of light.

And scientists working on Rosetta’s Alice instrument have so far failed to find any large patches of water-ice on 67P’s surface.

‘We're a bit surprised at just how unreflective the comet's surface is and how little evidence of exposed water-ice it shows,’ said Alan Stern, Alice principal investigator at the Southwest Research Institute in Colorado.

Ebola is surging in places it had been beaten back

Doctors Without Borders shuttered one of its Ebola treatment centers in Guinea in May. They thought the deadly virus was being contained there.

The Macenta region, right on the Liberian border, had been one of the first places where the outbreak surfaced, but they hadn’t seen a new case for weeks. So they packed up, leaving a handful of staff on stand-by. The outbreak was showing signs of slowing elsewhere as well.

Instead, new cases appeared across the border in Liberia and then spread across West Africa, carried by the sick and dying. Now, months later, Macenta is once again a hotspot.

How Monsanto, the World Bank and the IMF are working to force GMOs into a destabilized Ukraine

Embattled Ukraine, which is currently under siege (practically) by a belligerent Russia, once upon a time used to be called the "Breadbasket of the Soviet Union," because most of the U.S.S.R.'s food came from there.

Even after the U.S.S.R. dissolved, Ukraine continued to be productive agriculturally, though its production of other goods and services, by 1999, had fallen to 40 percent of what the country was producing in 1991, when the breakup took place, according to the CIA World Factbook.

But now, while the Ukrainian government faces off against a powerful Russian army, the country's agricultural production is about to be ambushed as well, according to CounterPunch:

On July 28, the California-based Oakland Institute released a report revealing that the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), under terms of their $17 billion loan to Ukraine, would open that country to genetically-modified (GM) crops and genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) in agriculture.

Sea Ice Not Involved With ‘AGW’

Many were touting purported Arctic sea ice-melt as the surging sign of Anthropogenic Global Warming, or AGW. Brian Sussman, “ClimateGate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the … scam of AGW fanatics. Sussman describes how nobody officially measured Arctic ice until satellites became available in 1979.

John Daly, a former USS Skate crewmember in 1959: “the Skate found open water both in the summer and following winter.” Reports of the “least amount of ice in history, corresponds only to the last 30 years. They don’t include personal accounts by Navy men made before there were satellites to map ice in 1979.

Russian ‘Yamal’

In August 2000, the Russian icebreaker Yamal took some environmental scientists on an excursion into the Arctic. Arriving at the North Pole, they noticed expanses of open water. Photographs taken then became the subject of sensationalist reporting.

Stephen Hawking: God particle could wipe out the universe

He wrote: "The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100bn gigaelectronvolts (GeV)."

What might this lead to? Hawkins explained: "This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light. This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."

Before you prepare your loved ones for an evacuation to some distant star, Hawking did offer some hope with, it seems, a wry smile: "A particle accelerator that reaches 100bn GeV would be larger than Earth, and is unlikely to be funded in the present economic climate."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a great admirer of Professor Hawkings, especially the courage he has shown in overcoming his physical limitations, but I do nto agree with everything he says. Yes, AI might end human civilization as we know it, although AI will probably find humans useful to keep the connectors free of dust and corrosion. I disagree about alien civilizations being a threat. Any alien civilization whose technology can exceed the speed of light and cross the gap between stars would find present-day humans and Earth itself of little interest. Do you stop and examine every ant hill you p[ass as you drive down the highway? Same thing.

Long time readers know I do not support the "popular" theories of human-caused global warming or the Big Bang. With regard to the former, this coming winter will validate my skepticism, and with regard to the latter, I question whether what popped out of the LHC at Cern is a Higg's Boson, and even if it is, whether it ever actually existed before that very moment.

One of the downsides of an academic upbringing is that one is schooled to believe what the academics before you believed, which limits scientific objectivity. Professor Hawkings has refined that which he was taught to be real, but dares not stray outside the prime assumptions. Obviously were I to meet him I would be appropriately respectful and polite ... but I do have a couple pointed questions for him.

As for his claim about the end of the universe, this continues a pattern we have long seen in commercialized science of attracting attention and funding by predicting a dire catastrophe, and as this article point out, Stephen is trying to promote a book.

How the US government admits vaccines cause autism

Compensation for vaccine-induced autism? No. Compensation for vaccine-induced encephalopathy—“accompanied by” symptoms including autistic behavior and autism? Yes. -- The government is paying compensation for a vaccine-induced “something” that just happens to progress to an array of symptoms which include, well, autistic behavior, and yes, autism.

More than 1000 children hit with respiratory virus across 10 states…

A respiratory illness that has already sickened more than a thousand children in 10 states is likely to become a nationwide problem, doctors say. -- The disease hasn’t been officially identified but officials suspect a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the virus is related to the rhinovirus, which causes the common cold.

Rare Respiratory Virus Now Making Its Way Across the U.S., Sending Kids to ER

Just a heads up, apparently a rare respiratory virus called human enterovirus 68 (EV68) is sending kids to the hospital all over the Midwest and it just keeps spreading.

To be clear up front, for most people, this virus causes nothing more than a really crappy cold with the regular crappy cold symptoms. For young kids who suffer from asthma, however, this particular virus can be pretty dangerous.

Here are a few headlines to give you an idea:
Rare virus might be causing central Ohio kids’ respiratory illnesses

Army’s New Laser Cannon Blasts Drones Out of the Sky, Even in Fog

Boeing is building a laser cannon for the U.S. Army, and the new weapon has now proved it will be as capable at sea as on land. The High Energy Laser Mobile Demonstrator (HEL MD)—basically a high-energy laser mounted on top of a big truck—was successfully used to blast some UAV drones and 60mm mortars out of the Florida sky earlier this year, Boeing announced Thursday.

This test was done in a windy and foggy environment, an essential step to proving the technology is useful for naval deployment. The HEL MD used a 10-kilowatt laser—a much less powerful version of what it will eventually fire—to “successfully engage” more than 150 targets at Eglin Air Force Base, a Department of Defense weapons testing facility on the Florida Panhandle. In other words, it disabled or destroyed them.

Space Station Defies Humans, Launches Satellites Without Permission

The International Space Station has a cannon that launches tiny CubeSat microsatellites into orbit. Most of the time, those launches are triggered by human scientists on board or back on Earth. But this week, the ISS launched two CubeSats entirely on its own. This is how the uprising begins.

Yes, on Thursday night, ISS commander Steve Swanson was loading blood samples into a freezer when he noticed the doors of the CubeSat launcher were open. Swanson alerted mission control in Houston, which confirmed that two CubeSats had been inadvertently released.

It's not the first time this has happened: A NASA status report shows that two other CubeSats were unintentionally released on August 23rd. That means that, of the 12 CubeSats launched into orbit so far, one-third of them got impatient waiting for permission, and just launched themselves.
