WTC 7 Explosions

Prosecution drops charges against more of the G20 protesters, continues to persecute others

This latest about-face by the Crown constitutes an implicit admission of defeat; it shows how flimsy the charges are and how scandalously the police behaved during the security operations around the Summit. It is now clear that the mass arrests at the gymnasium, like the vast majority of the arrests during the Summit, were arbitrary and uncalled for, and were intended to terrorize the demonstrators and to discourage them from exercising their right to protest in the future.

In that vein, the CLAC would like to remind people that the Crown is persisting in its prosecution of 20 organizers that it is wrongly accusing of being the "ringleaders" behind the events of June 26th. There are two CLAC members amongst these scapegoats; they are facing three charges of conspiracy and are currently subject to draconian bail conditions including house arrest.

The Platypus Can Poison You 80 Different Ways

The platypus is a bit like a fruitcake. Shove a bunch of leftover genes in there, mix it up see what kind of animal you get.

That’s kind of the approach evolution used when designing this odd creature’s venom; scientists have just determined that the venom contains over 80 different toxins in 13 different classes. The poison can kill small animals, and can leave humans in pain for weeks. The venom is delivered through a barb on the male’s foot–it’s thought that the fellas use the poison during mating season to show dominance.

Top 10 Inventions Of 2010: 'Garage Invention' Awards

'Garage inventors' is a term used to describe individuals or groups of inventors that create independently. They are not on a salary or salary/incentive basis, paid by their companies to invent; they work alone, on their own or in small groups, generally in someone's garage or other part of the home. Many of the 2010 Popular Science invention winners actually did report having worked in their garages - literally. Popular Science recognizes the accomplishments of these independent inventors yearly in the June issue of its magazine. Here are the 10 winning inventions...

3-D maps reveal depths of sea floor

Scientists from James Cook University have mapped the sea floor along ancient coral reefs, underwater river beds and extended canyons; among the features are a vast undersea landslide 60 times the size of Uluru and a 5-km abyss. The 3-D model covers 3 million sq. km, stretching from the entire Queensland coast to almost as far as New Caledonia.

"Only six per cent of the Great Barrier Reef area consists of coral reefs. Unfortunately, a vast amount of the reef has been ignored. With this model we are stripping back the water and peering into the depths," says lead scientist Robin Beaman. "This grid is very much the map of the future. It gives researchers a base on which they can plan future expeditions."

Wait, So The RIAA Is Offended That Google Won't Do Work For Free?

The RIAA and the IFPI have been going on and on for years about just how ridiculous it is for people to suggest music should be "free." They will go on, at great length, to talk up the "value" of music and how it should be paid for. But, apparently, they don't think that applies to anyone else. They're apparently screaming angry at Google because Google (gasp) responded to their request to provide them tools to help them track down unauthorized copies, by quoting their standard prices for how much it costs to use Google's API. So, RIAA, please explain: why is it sacrilege for you to demand people pay up, but it's even worse if Google asks you to pay to use its resources?

Invasion of the Robot Home Snatchers

The Titanic that is the U.S. housing market has just sprung its biggest leak, and even some of the largest banks responsible for this mess, like Bank of America and JPMorgan Chase, are now imposing a temporary moratorium on foreclosures. They have done so very reluctantly and only after courts throughout the nation, and the attorneys general of 40 states, questioned the legality of a securitized system of homeownership that has impoverished tens of millions

U.S. troops now being trained to boss communities and run local governments are being readied to oversee a post-collapse America in which riots and civil unrest similar to that now exploding in Europe over austerity measures and pension cuts ravage the United States and are met with the iron fist of a militarized police state.

Democrat or Republican: The choice to be drowned or hanged

No genuine democracy can survive or function in the absence of a well informed populace. The United States of America holds fake elections, with fake choices, manipulated by a well entrenched corporate plutocracy designed to ensure that the process of democracy is hollow and but a cruel fake. Such is the present political and economic state of affairs in this nation.

The Democratic and Republican parties offer the masses of everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people the de facto non-choice of either euphemistic death by drowning or death by hanging. Thus, no real choice is offered at all. As the politicos of the Democratic Party foxes and the Republican Party wolves feed, like swine, from the bottomless blood-drenched financial trough of the corporate / military elite, democracy is rendered null and void.

The Real Horror Story: The U.S. Economic Meltdown

This October, millions of Americans are going to watch horror movies and read horror stories because they enjoy being frightened. Well, if you really want to be scared, you should just check out the real horror story unfolding right before our eyes - the U.S. economic meltdown. It seems like more bad news for the U.S. economy comes out almost every single day now. Unfortunately, things are about to get a whole lot worse. The mainstream media has been treating "Foreclosuregate" as if it is a minor nuisance, but the truth is that the lid is about to be publicly lifted on years and years of massive fraud in the U.S. mortgage industry, and this thing has the potential to cause economic chaos that is absolutely unprecedented.

Oath Keepers Rally in NH to Protest CPS Illegally Seizing Baby(Footage)

Newborn baby Cheyenne was taken from her parents– John Irish and Stephanie Taylor– by CPS shortly after she was born last week. An affidavit cited her father’s affiliation with Oath Keepers as one of the reasons for seizing Cheyenne from him and the child’s mother during her first week of life.

On 10/14/10 a rally was held by Oath Keepers and its supporters outside a courthouse in Dover, New Hampshire while Mr. Irish and Ms. Taylor’s hearing took place inside. The rally was a protest of Oath Keepers’ mention in the affidavit in what the organization’s founder– Stewart Rhodes– describes as an attempted “chilling of speech” through government agencies like CPS, targeting individuals because of their political beliefs.

Phoenix Cop Murders Unarmed Man and His Dog

What do police departments expect when they openly hire idiots? This man should be charged with two counts of murder. We need to get back to better times, times when police protected citizens instead of working for the corrupt federal government.

Officer Chrismans partner was actually one of the people who reported what actually happened. I would like to commend the sergent who stood up and told the truth about this vicious murder. He actually came out and said he did NOT feel threatened by the victim at any time!

Giraldi - Israel's Policies Are Manifestly Evil

KZ: and for the final question, how do you estimate the prospect of Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

PG: There is no hope for resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict as long as the United States continues to permit the Israelis to expand and commit crimes against humanity directed towards the Palestinian people. Evil is evil no matter how you try to dress it up and the Israeli policies are manifestly evil. The Palestinians cannot ever accept a peace settlement that requires being held in a large outdoor prison camp by the Israelis supported by the United States.
