Nobel economist Stiglitz: "US privatized profits, socialized losses is not capitalism." It’s fascism

*hyperlinks and videos live at source*

Joseph Stiglitz understands half the US economic disaster when he explains current policy is “no way to run an economy that’s going to work,” “there’s moral hazard everywhere,” and newly-invented and unregulated financial markets have only increased risk, not decreased it.

The 'Chosen Ones' Kosher List

What do Israeli Jews consider 'kosher?'
Rabbinic Text or Call to Terror?

January 22, 2010- Jerusalem — The marble-patterned, hardcover book embossed with gold Hebrew letters looks like any other religious commentary you’d find in an Orthodox Judaica bookstore — but reads like a rabbinic instruction manual outlining acceptable scenarios for killing non-Jewish babies, children and adults.

“The prohibition ‘Thou Shalt Not Murder’” applies only “to a Jew who kills a Jew,” write Rabbis Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzur of the West Bank settlement of Yitzhar. Non-Jews are “uncompassionate by nature” and attacks on them “curb their evil inclination,” while babies and children of Israel’s enemies may be killed since “it is clear that they will grow to harm us.”

The scandal deepens – IPCC AR4 riddled with non peer reviewed WWF papers

Remember our friends at World Wildlife Fund? Those schlockmeisters that produced the video of planes flying into New York with explicit comparisons to 9/11?

Well it turns out that the WWF is cited all over the IPCC AR4 report, and as you know, WWF does not produce peer reviewed science, they produce opinion papers in line with their vision. Yet IPCC’s rules are such that they are supposed to rely on peer reviewed science only. It appears they’ve violated that rule dozens of times, all under Pachauri’s watch.

Under the Wire and into the Freeedom Land

Along with the intrusion of the world on our personal space, the fear has come slipping through our neighborhoods, rattling at the windows and doors. The force of it grew with each succeeding year. 9/11 was the launching pad. Like a hugely popular film it gave birth to numerous spin-offs and strange product placements based on the characters and the plot line of what has turned out to be a fiction in every sense except for the actual event.

Beirut: 90 feared dead as Ethiopian Airlines plane crashes into Mediterranean

Two British nationals were among the 90 passengers and crew on board an Ethiopian Airlines plane which crashed into the Mediterranean shortly after take-off from Beirut's international airport.

Ethiopian Airlines Flight 409 was just minutes into its journey to Addis Ababa when the Boeing 737-800 plunged into the sea in what witnesses described as a "ball of fire".

At least 23 bodies have been recovered so far and there have been no reports of survivors.

According to Lebanese officials, the aircraft disappeared from radar screens five minutes after taking off from Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport during a thunder storm and heavy rain.

The Obama Administration's Cover-up of the Flight 253 Affair

Relevant questions begging for answers include: Who made the decision not to "connect the dots"? Are right-wing elements and holdovers from the previous administration actively conspiring to destabilize the Obama government? Was the attempted bombing a planned provocation meant to incite new conflicts in the Middle East and restrict democratic rights at home?

As with the 9/11 attacks, these questions go unasked by corporate media. Indeed, such lines of inquiry are entirely off the table and are further signs that a cover-up is in full-swing, not a hard-hitting investigation.

UN wrongly linked global warming to natural disasters

THE United Nations climate science panel faces new controversy for wrongly linking global warming to an increase in the number and severity of natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods.

It based the claims on an unpublished report that had not been subjected to routine scientific scrutiny — and ignored warnings from scientific advisers that the evidence supporting the link too weak. The report's own authors later withdrew the claim because they felt the evidence was not strong enough.

Untidy beds may keep us healthy

Failing to make your bed in the morning may actually help keep you healthy, scientists believe.

Haiti earthquake: government fears toll could rise to 300,000

The confirmed death toll was raised to 150,000 on Sunday, but that was only the count of bodies so far found and collected in the capital Port-au-Prince.

It did not include those recovered in other areas like the shattered city of Leogane, near the earthquake epicentre, and Jacmel on the southern coast.

The count did not include the large number of bodies burned by relatives after lying for days in the streets, and those still under the wreckage of their homes.

"Nobody knows how many bodies are buried in the rubble - 200,000 ... 300,000?" said Marie-Laurence Jocelyn Lassegue, the information minister. "Who knows the overall death toll?"
