High dose vitamin D could treat multiple sclerosis, scientists find

Taking large doses of the recommended daily dose of vitamin D could be a cheap and simple treatment for multiple sclerosis, say scientists.

Low levels of vitamin D in the blood are known to be associated with an increased risk of developing MS.

And patients with low levels of the vitamin are also likely to suffer from disability, but until now scientists have now known if supplements could help the condition.

Now research by Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore has shown that upping levels of the sunshine vitamin dampens down the immune system, stopping it attacking nerve fibres.

Heroin dealer in chief

A heroin surge is shocking and awing Americans, 165,000 of who will be killed the next ten years. How does 415,000 kilograms (913,000 pounds) of heroin from US-occupied Afghanistan get to US each year? Opium Wars I & II were British troops forcing farmers in India and Pakistan, colonies of Britain then, to grow opium which Brits pushed on Chinese to try to make China a colony of Britain too. In the 1980's, CIA grifters flew weapons to Contras in Nicaragua and flew crack cocaine back to the USA . The DEA did nothing to stop CIA felons from dealing crack in the USA.

Three vaccine 'science' fraudsters who should probably be (or already have been) in jail: Poul Thorsen, Paul Offit and Henry Miller

You know the American justice system is in utter shambles when a non-violent, elderly man is sentenced to life in prison for his involvement with the cannabis plant, while corrupt scientists and drug company CEOs who lie about the safety of pharmaceuticals and vaccines, harming and killing thousands of innocent children in the process, get off scot-free.

Activist Jailed & Tortured for Exposing Gov’t Role in Illegal Uranium Mining Speaks Out

By Claire Bernish

Nuclear energy always has been, and likely will be for the duration of its existence, the subject of controversy and contention for many; but often the enmity surrounds radioactive waste and its disposal or risks of monumental meltdown catastrophes, as occurred at Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011. Rarely does such contention concern sourcing of uranium for nuclear energy — but it should.

Golden Misabiko, an award-winning human rights activist, risked his life exposing governmental corruption...

Study Proves Fluoride Does Not Promote Dental Health – US Teeth “Significantly” Worse Than UK

Blowing the pro-water-fluoridation argument out of the water, a new study by Harvard and University College London just found Brits — notoriously crooked smiles and all — actually have better dental health than people in the United States. No, seriously.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the US Government recommended fluoridation to improve dental health. Recently they were forced to admit it doesn't work, and with this report it now turns out flouride is actually harmful to teeth!

Reminds me of back in the 1920s when the US government recommended fluoroscopes be in shoe stores to make sure shoes fit properly and allowed workers to work longer and harder. The US Surgeon General even made educational films touting the use of these devices. Then in the 1930s shoe store employees started dying of cancer, and eventually the machines were banned.

So why would you trust the US Government today when it tells you vaccines are safe and necessary, that GMOs are harmless, TSA scannmers don;t cause skin cancer, and that humans are warming the Earth?

Dad Arrested, Two-Year-Old Daughter Taken, for Successfully Treating Her Cancer with Cannabis Oil

By John Vibes

As cannabis is taken more seriously as a medicine and a treatment, more people are taking a chance and using it as a treatment for terminal illnesses. This treatment has had overwhelmingly positive results for countless people who had no other hope of recovery. Every day more stories and scientific studies are appearing from all over the world where people of all ages, even young children, are cured of life-threatening illnesses with cannabis oil.

More often than not, these patients face legal penalties and even jail time for trying to better their lives. In the case of parents with children who have terminal illnesses, they are forced to break laws to get their kids the treatment that they need...

Bill Cosby Charged with Sexual Assault

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby was charged Wednesday with sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago — the first criminal charges brought against the comedian out of the torrent of allegations that destroyed his good-guy image as America’s Dad.

The case sets the stage for perhaps the biggest Hollywood celebrity trial of the mobile-all-the-time era and could send the 78-year-old Cosby to prison in the twilight of his life and barrier-breaking career.

‘Toxic stress’: Max blood lead levels in Flint children 7 times higher than CDC guidelines – doctor

Experts who blew the whistle on lead-contaminated water in Flint, Michigan, and its impact on children said some kids had blood lead levels far higher than those US health officials consider “elevated” – and that the state knew kids were being poisoned.

As Michigan officials scramble to help the affected community, a lead researcher who helped expose the toxicity of the water, Virginia Tech professor Marc Edwards, said city and state officials should have known that the Flint River was highly corrosive before they decided to switch from the Detroit water system in 2014. He called the lack of water treatment “unprecedented.”

Without phosphate treatment, the corrosive water flowed from the Flint River through the city’s lead pipes for 17 months and became contaminated. Failures at multiple levels of government exacerbated the problem and delayed the response to the developing crisis.

International Space Station crew to celebrate New Year 15 times

The International Space Station (ISS) crew will be able to celebrate the New Year for 15 times in a row, the Russian mission control center told TASS on Tuesday. For the first time the crew will celebrate the New Year flying over New Zealand. The ISS crew lives on Greenwich Mean Time, so the station will be above the Pacific Ocean when the New Year comes to Greenwich. The New Year in Moscow, where the mission control center is located, will come when the crew will be between the South America and Africa. The astronauts will be flying over the Pacific when the NASA control center in Houston will meet 2016. The 15th celebration may take place to the south-east of New Zealand. The ISS crew includes Russian cosmonauts Mikhail Korniyenko, Sergey Volkov and Yuri Malenchenko, NASA astronauts Timothy Kopra and Scott Kelly, and European Space Agency’s Timothy Peake.

Why Engineers Can’t Stop Los Angeles' Enormous Methane Leak

One of the biggest environmental disasters in US history is happening right now, and you’ve probably never heard of it.

An enormous amount of harmful methane gas is currently erupting from an energy facility in Aliso Canyon, California, at a startling rate of 110,000 pounds per hour. The gas, which carries with it the stench of rotting eggs due to the addition of a chemical called mercaptan, has led to the evacuation 1,700 homes so far. Many residents have already filed lawsuits against the company that owns the facility, the Southern California Gas Company.

Footage taken on December 17 shows a geyser of methane gas spewing from the Earth, visible by a specialized infrared camera operated by an Earthworks ITC-certified thermographer. The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) released the footage last week, calling it “one of the biggest leaks we’ve ever seen reported” and “absolutely uncontained”:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Southern California Edison cannot stop the leak because their engineers are still guessing.

There has to be someone on this planet who has dealt with this kind of problem successfully before; Southern California Edison has to collectively swallow its pride, and call in some consultants who understand how to get this leak to stop.

Otherwise, this utilities company may well get sued out of existence.

Donald Trump: An Evaluation

Trump is popular not so much for his stance on issues as for the fact that he is not another Washington politican, and he is respected for not backing down and apologizing when he makes strong statements for which he is criticized. What people see in Trump is strength and leadership. This is what is unusual about a political candidate, and it is this strength to which voters are responding.

Recently I watched a video of a woman described as a "Trump advisor" who repeated neocon nazi William Kristol's statement: "What's the use of nuclear weapons if you can't use them?"

How did a William Kristol neocon nazi get on Trump's staff? What more proof do we need that even if Trump is elected, the establishment will prevail despite Trump.

Flashback - In flood-struck Colorado, concerns about fracking spills

Contaminated water spilling from flooded oil and gas drilling sites in Colorado is refocusing attention on the environmental risks surrounding America's fracking boom.

Floods that have devastated north-central Colorado, killing eight people and displacing thousands, have also dislodged storage tanks that hold drilling wastewater left over from the production process known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

While the impact of leaks is yet to be assessed, environmental groups, which oppose fracking, are expressing concerns about the risk of adding drilling fluids to other toxins potentially loosed by the floods.

China launches satellite for remote sounding of Earth

The satellite was launched with the aid of a Changzheng rocket from the Xichang launch center in Xichuan province. Xinhua quoted Administrator Xu Dazhe as saying the satellite that is equipped with a system of optical observation has been placed into the geosynchronous earth orbit. Xu called it the most advanced space probe of its kind nowadays. It will be used for remote tracking of geological processes and forest fires and for drawing up weather forecasts. All in all, China plans launching seven satellites of the Gaofeng family through to 2020. Unlike the Gaofeng-1 and Gaofeng-2 that were launched into low geosynchronous obits, the Gaofeng-4 is orbiting the Earth at an elevation of 36,000 km. The designer-in-chief of the project, Li Guo said the satellite can see an oil tanker in the oceanic spaces with the aid of a CMOS camera ensuring the best resolution among the cameras installed on satellites for remote sounding of the Earth.

The LA Methane Leak - "Don't Worry, The Air Is Safe To Breathe"

On this edition of DTRH Popeye spends the first hour covering the ongoing, and massive methane leak in the Porter Ranch suburb of Los Angeles California. The leak is so massive there is a no fly zone set at 2000 ft above it, and people are already being moved out of their homes. This is as bad as the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico except it's methane into the air rather than oil into the water. Popeye points out how fast things are happening on the ground in Porter Ranch vs. the ongoing, dragged out situation in St. Louis with the leaking radioactive waste sites like the Westlake Landfill. It goes to show you the power of the nuclear cartel.

Sacramento officials caught secretly adding cancer-causing chemicals to the water supply

Between 2013 and 2014, the City of Sacramento began quietly adding a chemical known as aluminum chlorohydrate, or ACH, to the public water supply in a supposed effort to save money on water purification. ACH was introduced as a replacement for ALUM – another chemical that had previously been used to remove larger particulates – because it is said to be cheaper than ALUM.

ACH was never properly safety tested, and in fact was known at the time to cause cancer, miscarriages and birth defects when ingested or inhaled. But city officials decided to add it anyway, which resulted in many local residents developing these and other health problems. Some residents even developed cancer as a result of consuming the contaminated water throughout the course of the year.

California police officer killed protecting Alex Jones from potential killer

AUSTIN, Tex. (INTELLIHUB) — If you don’t already know him, Alex Jones is a controversial radio talk show host who does what he says and says what he does. The guy is for real and he’s in it for the long-haul. In fact, you can likely bet he’s one of the establishment’s top enemies aside from Donald Trump who Jones recently interviewed.

He’s been exposing the “New World Order” as he’s termed them, the world’s top “globalist elite” for years on his popular radio show, “The Alex Jones Show”.

On Dec 22. Jones reported while on air that the Police Chief of Austin had previously informed him that they had arrested someone who came to town awhile back to kill Jones.

Former prosecutor says Steven Avery documentary on Netflix is unfair

This fellow was wrongfully convicted of rape and released. The state was going to have to pay him $36 million for a wrongful conviction,so they set him up again
and these film makers have the prosecutor dead to rights and the prosecutor is cryin like a little bully baby!

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The prosecutor who put Steven Avery in prison for killing a young photographer says a Netflix documentary chronicling the case is slanted toward the defense.

Avery made headlines in 2003 when he was released from prison after spending nearly two decades behind bars for a rape he didn’t commit. Two years later, Avery was charged with killing Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer who visited the Avery family salvage yard to take photos of cars on Halloween and was never seen alive again.

Our government wants to keep you in the dark about GMOs

By now I hope everybody knows about the dangers of GMO foods. I have been reporting on this for years. GMO (genetically modified) foods are exceptionally contaminated with pesticides. And they are internally contaminated with chemical substances in the food that human beings have never been exposed to. The so-called safety studies that indicate they are harmless are short term and poorly done.

The reality is studies have linked them to the current outbreak of many chronic diseases. These include Alzheimer's, colitis, Crohn's disease, autism, Parkinson's, diabetes, anxiety, panic attacks, phobias, and thyroid cancer. And now, the lobbyists in congress want to pass a bill to guarantee that you can never be sure that you're not eating a GMO-produced food. That's the bad news. But the good news is that there's still some time to stop them.

On Medicare-for-All, Clinton Reminds Us That She's Part of the Problem

If the Hillary Clinton campaign had its way, supporters of Bernie Sanders – whose backing she will obviously want in November should she win the Democratic nomination – would feel that, while Clinton might not be all that they want in a president, she would at least go part of the way there. But if you followed the third debate deep enough into the night, you witnessed, in what stands as the most disingenuous moment of the Democratic race thus far, Clinton not simply disagreeing with Sanders on his Medicare For All, single payer health insurance plan, but knowingly distorting it. This was not Hillary Clinton offering a more moderate version of a solution, this was Hillary Clinton acting as part of the problem.

The cost of failing infrastructure

After the city started using the Flint River as a source for drinking water in April 2014, by decree of Michigan Governor, Gary Snyder, Flint residents endured several months of irritating health problems, including hair loss and rashes.

For years, the community of Flint had sourced its water from Lake Huron by purchasing it from Detroit. Then a temporary switch was enacted by Governor Snyder and Flint residents were forced back to the use of river water.

But Governor Snyder of Michigan never put adequate controls in place to protect the aging plumbing infrastructure throughout Flint. The river water then started to eat away at the pipes. As a result, lead from the pipes leached into the water and worked its way into people’s homes, impregnating their diets and their bodies.

Ørland Airport is located in a region of Norway that changed dramatically after the last ice age ended. The area was once completely covered by a thick, heavy layer of ice whose weight caused the Earth's crust to sink below sea level. When the glaciers melted, much of this region remained underwater, creating a secluded bay where today there is nothing but dry land. At the fringes of this vanished bay, archaeologists with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology Museum found the remains of what appears to have been a large, wealthy farming community.

First GMO Corn, Then Frankenfish, And Now — Get Ready For Designer Babies

The first week in December, delegates from the top three gene-editing countries—China, the UK and the US—met in Washington, DC for a symposium on the future of gene-editing. For those not familiar with the parlance, gene editing refers to the ability to alter the DNA of an embryo in a manner which affects the germline. The germline is defined as follows; “In biology and genetics, the germline in a multicellular organism is that population of its bodily cells that are so differentiated or segregated that in the usual processes of reproduction they may pass on their genetic material to the progeny.”

This is the most logical article I have seen on Putin, his actions and his lack of actions. Russia will NEVER win against the Rothschild cabal until they toss the phony debt as money lie that almost all nations now live with as the cabal grabs ever more wealth through it. As well as having stolen over 90% of all wealth, world wide, they also own the best part of EVERY national debt, so-called, on these totally phony loans of nothing at usury instead of an honest real monetary medium of exchange. The world's worst crime in all history. It causes more grief than mass murders because it is that as well as every other economic crime combined with it.

America’s Wild Bee Populations Are Dwindling at Alarming Rates

By Claire Bernish

United States — “It’s clear that pollinators are in trouble,” cautioned Taylor Ricketts, lead author of a study mapping the decline in pollinator populations by researchers with the University of Vermont, published Monday in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Despite Ricketts’ rather restrained statement, the study’s findings clearly indicate the pollinators — specifically, wild bees — aren’t the only ones in trouble...

30,000 waiting to be re-housed in Porter Ranch California due to unstopable methane leak: 62 million cubic feet of methane lost into the atmosphere each day!

A court ordered SoCal Gas Company to provide temporary housing for thousands of Porter Ranch, Los Angeles, residents made sick from fumes from a massive gas leak.

An infrared camera captured the size of the gas plume that's been leaking for two months.

The court order issued on Wednesday will come as a relief to more than 2,500 families in Porter Ranch, a northwest San Fernando Valley community, who have been waiting to be relocated by SoCal Gas since the leak began spewing methane into their homes and schools on October 23.

As of Tuesday, the company had paid for temporary housing for more than 2,000 other households, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Christmas trees lit up in Tartous and Damascus Countryside amidst religious and popular participation

24 December? 2015

Provinces, SANA – A 22 m tall Christmas tree was lit up in Safita city in Tartous province on Saturday in honor of Syria’s martyrs.

The event was attended by a Greek religious delegation currently visiting Syria and presided by Elder Elisaios, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Simonos Petras, Mt Athos-Greece.

“We came to Syria to send a message of joy and hope to its people that the future will be better,” Elisaios said in a statement to SANA.

“We are anguished because the Syrian people have to suffer such great tragedies, and we pray to God to remove the injustice and suffering they are going through” he added.

Massive methane leak forces relocation of 2,500 California families

New aerial footage of the leak was also released on Wednesday by the Environmental Defense Fund, which captured the intensity of the leak by infrared camera. The video footage shows a steady, thick plume pouring into the air over a densely packed residential area. It is hard to judge the width of the plume from the video, but EDF said it is pumping out 62 million cubic feet of methane into the atmosphere each day. Methane packs 80 times the 20-year warming power of carbon dioxide.

“What you can’t see is easy to ignore. That’s why communities that suffer from pollution from oil and gas development are often dismissed by industry and regulators,” said Earthworks spokesman Alan Septoff in a statement. “Making invisible pollution visible shows the world what people in Porter Ranch have been living with every day for months.”

'Sadness & triumph': Cassini spacecraft’s last close flyby of Saturn moon Enceladus (PHOTOS)

NASA's Cassini spacecraft has completed its final close flyby of Saturn's moon Enceladus, capturing detailed images of its furrows and ridges. It was the spacecraft's 22nd encounter with the icy satellite.

Cassini passed Enceladus at a distance of 3,106 miles (4,999km) on December 19, snapping stunning photos of the moon.

The images, transmitted by the spacecraft and released by NASA, show three views from Cassini – one as it peered out over the moon's northern territory, another that focused on the icy moon's craggy, dimly lit limb, with the planet Saturn beyond, and a third photo showing the nearly parallel furrows and ridges of the feature named Samarkand Sulci.

Climate Change? Why Hasn't Obama Mentioned the Enormous "Unstoppable" Gas Leak Happening in California Right Now?

Some 150 million pounds of methane has now poured into the atmosphere in just a few weeks. No one seems to know what caused it and no one seems to know how to stop it. The gas leak continues unabated. It shows no signs of stopping. It is now officially being called the worst catastrophe since the BP oil spill and the worst gas leak in California state history.

Obama will wax on all day about “climate change” right? Well methane is clearly much worse for the environment than the man-made carbon dioxide he’s always railing against and where has he been on this one? Pushing gun control? Golfing?

This leak has supposedly already released the equivalent of what would be released from six coal fired power plants (the ones he wants to regulate out of existence) over the span of twenty years… in just under two months. And it just keeps leaking at an alarming rate.

And the president hasn’t said a peep. Keep in mind, this leak was happening DURING the recent climate talks in Paris.

"Unstoppable" California Gas Leak Now Being Called Worst Catastrophe Since BP Spill

Since initially reporting on California's Alison Canyon gas leak, more details have emerged on the scale (and potential for no solution) of the problem as the infamous Erin Brockovich writes, "the enormity of the Aliso Canyon gas leak cannot be overstated. Gas is escaping through a ruptured pipe more than 8,000 feet underground, and it shows no signs of stopping," as according to the California Air Resources Board, methane - a greenhouse gas 72 times more impactful in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide - has been escaping from the Aliso Canyon site with force equivalent “to a volcanic eruption” for about two months now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question which needs to be asked is, how was this allowed to snowball into such a catastrophe, with such potential harmful effects, and not handled when it was manageable?!?

There were some nasty assumptions, leading up to this, where reality and wishful thinking collided.

But what’s making this massive leak so difficult to stop pertains to the storage ‘container,’ itself. “We have the largest natural gas storage system in the world,” boasts Chris McGill, vice president of the American Gas Association. In the United States, old underground oil fields are often put to use as storage vessels for natural gas — because, hey, that geology worked just fine to hold oil for millions of years, so why not natural gas? In fact, there are some 300 such depleted subterranean oil fields being employed this way around the United States. Aliso Canyon, a natural gas storage site since the 1970s, has one of the largest capacities: 86 billion cubic feet. During the summer, gas earmarked for winter heating is pumped into these underground cavities by SoCalGas — and the process is reversed with the turn of the seasons. However, this year, workers encountered what quickly became evident was anything but a typical hiccup. As Wired reported: “On October 23, workers noticed the leak at a 40-year-old well in Aliso Canyon. Small leaks are routine, says Bohlen, and SoCalGas did what it routinely does: put fluid down the well to stop the leak and tinker with the well head. It didn’t work. The company tried it five more times, and the gas kept leaking. At this point, it was clear the leak was far from routine, and the problem was deeper underground.” Beginning December 4th, SoCalGas crews began drilling a relief well to intercept the fissured pipe

SoCalGas and SEMPRA should be sued out of existence for creating this massive flustercluck.

Lawsuit Unleashes Documents Alleging FDA Covered up Risks of GMOs Since 1991

A previously unreleased set of Food and Drug Administration documents related to genetically engineered (GE or GMO) foods alleges the agency was aware of possible risks to humans as far back as 1991.
The documents were released through a lawsuit filed by Steven Druker, a public interest attorney and executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity (ABI). Druker obtained a reported 44,000 pages of messages, memos, and reports from the FDA. Twenty-four of the most damaging documents are highlighted on ABI’s website and in Druker’s recent book, Altered Genes, Twisted Truth.

Within the documents are several key pieces of information. First, in the FDA’s “Statement of Policy: Foods Derived From New Plant Varieties,” dated May 29, 1992, the agency stated it was “not aware of any information” showing these products differ “in any meaningful way” from other food, despite memos showing researchers did, indeed, still have questions about the safety of GE foods.

Unstoppable California Gas Leak Being Called Worst Catastrophe Since BP Spill

Methane gas continues spewing, unchecked, into the air over southern California from a fractured well to an underground storage site — at such an alarming rate that low-flying planes have necessarily been diverted by the FAA, lest internal combustion engines meet highly volatile gas and, well, blow the entire area to hell. -- This is, indeed, the biggest environmental catastrophe since the BP Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010; and for now, there is no way to stop it.

Can too much fluoride lead to breast cancer?

By Dr. Veronique Desaulniers

Over 200 million Americans live in areas where fluoride is added to their water supply. Sadly, this practice of adding fluoride to the water began over seven decades ago and, by 1960, it was common throughout the United States.

In 1999, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that fluoridation of water supplies was one of the “ten great public health achievements of the 20th century.” But, what the CDC completely failed to consider is the mounting evidence that connects fluoride to neurological impairments, hypothyroidism and cancer...

The Myth of Bad Posture and Misconceptions About ‘Correction’

By Marco Torres

“Sit up straight son,” said practically every parent around the world at some point. It’s been drilled into us that bad posture will be the source of great pain and discomfort in the future if not corrected. But what if there is no bad posture? What if our posture is a reflection of who we are and changing it has nothing to with either a rudimentary adjustment of joints and muscles or mental focus on obtaining that perfect plumb line. Many postural correction inventions and therapeutic manipulations will have you believe that there is a perfect posture to be attained. Let me explain why bad posture is a myth...

The Digital Dark Ages: Movies and Books Get Deleted as Selfies Pile Up

The irony is that, even as we’re generating more records than any civilization ever, we’re destroying so much important stuff that future generations will hardly know we ever lived.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We can still read a 4000 year old recipe for beer on Sumerian clay tablets, but the back-up copies I made of my wife's music files in 2000 had self-erased by 2002. Future historians will have little with which to understand our times other than the monuments built by our leaders to promote the propaganda of their glorious victories in war.

As for selfies, I see those as a symptom of a growing self-obsessed culture that thinks the whole world wants to know what they had for lunch today!

ANALYSIS: Chipotle is a victim of corporate sabotage... biotech industry food terrorists are planting e.coli in retaliation for restaurant's anti-GMO menu

After observing recent events involving Chipotle and e.coli, here's my analysis of the situation: Chipotle's e.coli outbreaks are not random chance. They are the result of the biotech industry unleashing bioterrorism attacks against the only fast food company that has publicly denounced GMOs.

How do we know? The CDC has already admitted that some of these e.coli outbreaks involve a "rare genetic strain" of e.coli not normally seen in foods. Furthermore, we also know the track record of the biotech industry engaging in the most criminal, dirty, sleazebag tactics imaginable against any person or company that speaks out against GMOs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree. Prior to the non-GMO announcement by Chipotle, they never had any problems. Now it's happening to their restaurants all across America and the media gives it non-stop coverage. It is obvious this is a deliberate attack by the GMO industry desperate to make the public think that non-GMO is more dangerous than GMO, and send a warning to other restaurants and supermarkets to ignore consumer demand for non-GMO safe food and peddle the frankenfood without complaint!

Giant comets may threaten Earth: astronomers

Most studies of potential Earth-smashers focus on objects in the asteroid belt roughly between Mars, Earth’s outside neighbour, and Jupiter on its other flank, said the researchers.

But they noted that the discovery in the last two decades of hundreds of giant comets dubbed centaurs, albeit with much larger orbits, requires expanding the list of potential hazards.

These balls of ice and dust, typically 50-100km wide, have unstable, elliptical orbits that start way beyond Neptune, the most distant planet from the Sun.

Their paths cross those of the giant planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, whose gravity fields occasionally deflect a comet towards Earth — once about every 40,000-100,000 years.

As they draw closer to the Sun, the comets would gradually break up, which is what causes the trademark cometary debris tail — “making impacts on our planet inevitable”.

Roman Sword discovered off Oak Island radically suggests Ancient Mariners visited New World 1,000 years before Columbus

Researchers investigating the mysterious Oak Island, located on the south shore of Nova Scotia, Canada, have made a startling announcement regarding the discovery of a Roman ceremonial sword and what is believed to be a Roman shipwreck, radically suggesting that ancient mariners visited North America more than a thousand years before Columbus.

Evidence of the finding, which was exclusively revealed to Johnston Press and published in The Boston Standard, was uncovered by researchers involved in The History Channel’s series Curse of Oak Island, which details the efforts of two brothers from Michigan as they attempt to solve the mystery of the Oak Island treasure and discover historical artifacts believed to be concealed on the island.

J. Hutton Pulitzer, lead researcher and historic investigator, along with academics from the Ancient Artifact Preservation Society, have compiled a paper on the finding, which is scheduled to be published in full in early 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Being from New England, I heard about Oak Island when I was a kid, and like all children had visions of fantastic treasure hidden below. I enjoy watching the show, but I have several issues with their theories about elaborate water traps protecting the money pit as the slant-drilling technique needed to create the postulated flood tunnels simply did not exist in the times when the treasure (if it exists) was theorized to have been buried. That doesn't mean there is no treasure, only that there is some misinterpretation of the data. One point the show seems to have missed with regards to the possibility of the Templars being the source of the treasure; Oak Island is almost at the exact same latitude as the French seaport of La Rochelle, where the Templar fleet was anchored up until October 13, 1307, the day the French Templars were all rounded up by King Philip IV, who probably decided that killing the bankers he owed so much money to was his best option to erase that debt. The Templar fleet vanished from La Rochelle and many theorize that it sailed north to Scotland, or south to Portugal, the two nations that refused to carry out Pope Clement V's orders to arrest the Templars and confiscate their property. However, La Rochelle Harbor is at 46° 9'24.22"N latitude. Oak Island is at 44°30'44.21"N latitude. Sailing directly west from La Rochelle would have brought the Templar ships to what is today Cape Bretton Island, Nova Scotia. Sailing down along the coast 235 miles would bring them to Oak Island. However, the sextant was not invented until the 1700s, so determination of latitude would have been by Astrolabe, a device the Templars would have acquired during their dealings with the Muslim world. A 2 degree error across the breadth of the Atlantic would be fine accuracy for such an instrument, and it may be that any ships sailing west from La Rochelle would have arrived right at Oak Island, especially with the Labrador current pushing them south.

Vaccine mechanism of harm exposed in Gardasil vaccine

Early on in my research into the HPV vaccines I knew that the L-Histidine, which is unique to this vaccine, played a major role in what I was hearing from parents and girls adversely injured by Gardasil®. I made the connection between Histamine and IgE release. I was able to make the connection with all the variety of symptoms to the various components of this vaccine. Because of personal experiences, I found that the majority of the injured experienced an anaphylactic type incident. The adverse events experienced from the HPV vaccines nearly mirror those of an autistic child even down to the regression. Now I find that not only do the components of this vaccine play an integral part, but the main player in this scenario is the probable excessive histamine released because of injected L-Histidine.
