Cause of global warming hiatus found deep in the Atlantic Ocean (AKA CLIMATEGATE SCAM CONTINUES)

Following rapid warming in the late 20th century, this century has so far seen surprisingly little increase in the average temperature at the Earth’s surface. At first this was a blip, then a trend, then a puzzle for the climate science community.

Take a scenic tour of Neptune's moon: 'Best-ever' global colour map of Triton created from restored 1989 film

In the summer of 1989 Nasa’s Voyager 2 became the first, and to date only, spacecraft to visit the planet Neptune.

During the brief flyby of the planet on 25 August, the probe returned images of its natural satellite Triton, a giant moon bigger even than the dwarf planet Pluto.

And now a map and video have been revealed stitching together the images in unprecedented detail, creating the most comprehensview of its surface ever seen.

The Tucker Was the 1940s Car of the Future

Visionary inventor? Preston Tucker risked everything when he saw his 1948 automobile as a vehicle for change.

“As a child, my father told me about the new Tucker,” Coppola recounts. “He had ordered one and invested in the Tucker stock. He took me to see the car when it was on exhibit and I was very excited. I remember the details very well and for months kept asking, ‘When is the Tucker coming?’ Finally he said it was never coming, and that the big companies didn’t want it to exist, and wouldn’t let Mr. Tucker buy steel or the supplies he needed.”

Malnourished seniors slip through healthcare system's cracks

"..A new study finds that despite having malnutrition symptoms, three-quarters of patients age 65 and older who visited emergency departments in the University of North Carolina hospital system had not been diagnosed before their visit, even though 95% had a primary-care physician and nearly all were insured and living in a private residence. The study found 16% of the patients were malnourished and 60% were either malnourished or at risk for the problem. Of the patients with poor nutritional status, 77% did not recall having conversations with their primary-care physician about the issue.

Jon Rappoport: CDC whistleblower Thompson in grave danger now

William W Thompson, PhD…the CDC whistleblower…was escorted off the premises of the CDC campus yesterday afternoon. This is what a source has just told me.

Therefore, the CDC knows Thompson is the whistleblower.

He’s in danger.

I’ve also been told that the Autism Media Channel, which had posted the video revealing Thompson’s name and outing him, is gone. The site is suddenly gone.

Threats of various kinds, at the very least, will now be applied to Thompson. Legal action, perhaps arrest, perhaps worse.

When it comes to vaccines and protecting that empire, the games are very serious. Deadly serious. The gloves come off.

People have to understand this, if Thompson disappears or shows up dead “as a suicide.”

Sacramento Ebola test comes back negative

Health officials announced Thursday night that a patient in Sacramento who was thought to have been exposed to the Ebola virus after traveling to West Africa has tested negative and does not have the disease.

Dr. Ron Chapman, Director of the California Department of Public Health, said that a blood sample sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came back free of the deadly virus, which has been ravishing West Africa over the last two months, killing more than 1,100 people.

The patient had recently traveled to the region, officials said.

Iceland's Bardabunga Volcano Update: Tourists Evacuated

As concern increases over a possible eruption of Iceland's Bardabunga volcano, authorities have evacuated tourists from area.

A recent swarm of earthquakes near the volcano has seismologists fearing an eruption could happen soon.

Iceland's Civil Protection Department says 300-500 people, mostly visitors, have been evacuated from the highlands north of the Vatnajokull glacier, which is popular with hikers.

Officials said Wednesday the measure was taken as a safety precaution, the Associated Press reports. Roads in the area have been closed that an eruption would lead to flooding.

Monsanto, GMOs, and the Future of Open Source Synthetic Biology

If the controversy over genetically modified organisms (GMOs) tells us something indisputable, it is this: GMO food products from corporations like Monsanto are suspected to endanger health. On the other hand, an individual’s right to genetically modify and even synthesize entire organisms as part of his dietary or medical regimen could someday be a human right.

The suspicion that agri-giant companies do harm by designing crops is legitimate, even if evidence of harmful GMOs is scant to absent. Based on their own priorities and actions, we should have no doubt that self-interested corporations disregard the rights and wellbeing of local producers and consumers. This makes agri-giants producing GMOs harmful and untrustworthy, regardless of whether individual GMO products are actually harmful.

6 of the Biotech Industry’s Biggest Marketing Lies to Convince You GMOs Are Great

Waking Times

By now, you’ve likely heard of Big Agriculture and Big Pharma, the huge industries behind the food we eat and drugs we take that quite ably tend to avoid government regulation. Less well known is Big Biotech, genetic engineering companies like Monsanto, Novartis and DuPont that work closely with Big Ag to create more “efficient” foods through chemistry. A good example is recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a genetically engineered milk stimulator invented by Monsanto but soon embraced by Big Ag for its profit potential—getting more milk out of each cow. Living animals are called “units,” and treated as nothing more than unfeeling machines.

US Defense Secretary said on Thursday that Islamic State militants could possibly pose an even bigger threat to the United States than Al-Qaeda, and pledged efforts to weaken the group would continue.

Responding to a question on whether or not the extremists are a threat on the scale of Al-Qaeda, which carried out the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center, Hagel noted that "ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen."

"They're beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we've seen. So we must prepare for everything," he added.

It may find such a refutation more difficult this time after Irish Times reported that a man was found dead last night in Donegal, after working in Sierra Leone, the epicenter of the current Ebola outbreak, and where "it is understood that a number of colleagues had contracted the virus." The deceased was taken to Letterkenny General Hospital where the HSE is carrying out tests to see whether the death resulted from Ebola.

What Are They Thinking?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided to repost this video in light of the current Ebola scare. It goes into detail about National Security Study memorandum 200 and starting at 6 minutes, talks about how vaccines have become less about public health and more about making the pharmaceutical companies rich.

Regardless of whether the current Ebola outbreak is a natural event or man-made, there is no question that the big pharmaceutical companies are going to exploit the fear caused by Ebola to sell you products which may prove as totally useless as Tamiflu was for the 2009 flu non-pandemic. Given the recent spate of cases where the people getting vaccines were more likely to come down with the illness being vaccinated against than those who avoided the shots, we should be very cautious about a new Ebola vaccine that hits the market, especially with US protecting the vaccine makers from lawsuits.

WHO says 70 die from illness in Congo, denies Ebola link

At least 70 people have died in northern Democratic Republic of Congo from an outbreak of hemorrhagic gastroenteritis, the World Health Organization said on Thursday, denying that the illness was Ebola.

A WHO report dated Thursday and seen by Reuters said that 592 people had contracted the disease, of whom 70 died. Five health care workers, including one doctor, are among the dead.

"This is not Ebola," a WHO spokesman said in an email to Reuters on Thursday.

Madonna was falling over herself a few years ago about Malawi, and Clooney took Sudan so seriously that he led a ‘Save Darfur’ rally in Washington.

Upcoming Eruption in Iceland’s Vatnajökull?

A level of uncertainty has been declared in Bárðarbunga volcano, located in the northwestern Vatnajökull glacier, Southeast Iceland, due to an increase in seismic activity in the volcano. The largest earthquake of the swarm, 3.8 in magnitude, occurred near Kistufell last night. It could be felt as far as Akureyri in Northeast Iceland, reports. The seismic activity continues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Bardabunga Volcano, Iceland's second highest peak, is located underneath a massive glacier system with thirty outflows. An eruption will melt those glaciers, producing a phenomenon known as a lahar, which is a volcanic mudslide. In the event of a major eruption of Bardabunga, a lahar from the Vatna glacier system will flood the central Iceland valley and possibly mud and debris into the North Atlantic.

Alert: Area North of Bárðarbunga Volcano Evacuated

The Police Commissioners in Húsavík and Seyðisfjörður have decided to close and evacuate the area north of Vatnajökull following the seismic activity in Bárðarbunga.

This decision is a safety measure. It cannot be ruled out that the seismic activity in Bárðarbunga will lead to a volcanic eruption. There is no change in the seismic activity at the moment and no sign of an eruption but experience shows that seismic activity can be ongoing for a long time without an eruption. This is first and foremost a precautionary measure since the evacuation of the area is impossible at short notice.

Triclosan, chemical in toothpaste linked to cancer, bone malformation and hormone disruption, has been in toothpaste for 17 years

According to Bloomberg, key pages from the 35-page summary on triclosan's toxicity reveal that the chemical mimics thyroid hormones, a fact that was withheld when the FDA first green-lighted it for use in toothpaste. Mice and rats exposed to small doses of the chemical, similar to what humans encounter when using toothpaste containing triclosan, experienced fetal bone malformations that experts say point to endocrine disruption.

Other key points from the summary reveal that triclosan can cause cancer, something that was never revealed or addressed by the FDA on behalf of public safety. Instead, these and other risks were concealed, suggesting that Colgate had conspired with the FDA to present triclosan in the safest possible light without raising public concern.

Emergency response to Ebola outbreak lacks leadership, Canadian aid official says

Five months have passed since the Ebola virus was first confirmed in West Africa — but according to a top aid official, the emergency response is still leaderless and suffering from a kind of “Ebola psychosis” that has made the global community reluctant to join the front-line fight.

The unprecedented Ebola epidemic has now caused 2,473 reported cases and 1,350 deaths across four West African countries, but medical charity Médecins Sans Frontières is still one of the few international organizations with boots on the ground, said president Dr. Joanne Liu.

The Canadian physician, who recently returned from a 10-day tour of the worst-hit countries, said there is a “vacuum” of leadership in the outbreak response, which still lacks a co-ordinated plan at the top.

If Ebola hits Lagos, we're in big trouble

You think there are magic bullets in some rich country's freezers that will instantly stop the relentless spread of the Ebola virus in West Africa? You think airport security guards in Los Angeles can look a traveller in the eyes and see infection, blocking that jet passenger's entry into La-la land? You believe novelist Dan Brown's utterly absurd description of a World Health Organisation that has a private C5-A military transport jet and disease SWAT team that can swoop into outbreaks, saving the world from contagion?

Wake up, fools. What's going on in West Africa now isn't Brown's silly Inferno scenario - it's Steven Soderberg's movie "Contagion", though without a modicum of its high-tech capacity.

Ebola Dead Can’t Be Buried in Liberia Amid Bag Shortage

The bodies of some Ebola victims in the region of Liberia hit hardest by the outbreak can’t be buried because there are no body bags, adding to the obstacles the West African nation faces as it tries to tame the virus.

The northern county of Lofa, which borders Guinea and Sierra Leone, has “absolutely no body bags,” Liberia’s Ministry of Health and Social Welfare said in a statement dated Aug. 17 and posted on its website yesterday. The government also has only a small fraction of the protective clothing, chlorine powder and mattresses it needs, according to the statement.

How Your Morning Coffee Can Prevent Tinnitus

by Dr. Victor Marchione

One of the best and most reliable “health drinks” available is a simple, good ol’ cup of Joe. A few mugs of black coffee per day can do more than just keep you awake and stimulated. There is evidence showing that coffee can lower your risk of diabetes and liver disease and that it can promote a healthy heart. These are just some of the potential benefits of coffee, and there are likely more on the way.

In fact, when I was enjoying my morning cup of coffee the other day, I came across a new discovery suggesting coffee may be able to stave off tinnitus...

Four indicted in Feb. recall of 8.7 million pounds of contaminated beef

Four people from the slaughterhouse at the center of a massive beef recall in February have been indicted for purposely allowing diseased cattle into its processed meat and misleading health inspectors.

Federal prosecutors on Monday this week claimed the owners of Rancho Feeding Corp., a Northern California beef processing plant, schemed with employees to butcher about 79 cows with skin cancer of the eye rather than stopping plant operations during inspector lunch breaks. The government also said that plant workers swapped the heads of diseased cattle with heads of healthy cows to hide them from inspectors.

Another new use found for hemp - makes a superior supercapacitor & it's cheaper than graphene

Industrial hemp and hemp seed could transform the economy of the world States in a positive and beneficial way, and therefore should be exploited to its full potential, especially relating to energy storage.

David Mitlin, Ph.D., explains that supercapacitors are energy storage devices that have huge potential to transform the way future electronics are powered. Unlike today’s rechargeable batteries, which sip up energy over several hours, supercapacitors can charge and discharge within seconds. But they normally can’t store nearly as much energy as batteries, an important property known as energy density. One approach researchers are taking to boost supercapacitors’ energy density is to design better electrodes. Mitlin’s team has figured out how to make them from certain hemp fibers — and they can hold as much energy as the current top contender: graphene.

“Our device’s electrochemical performance is on par with or better than graphene-based devices,” Mitlin says. “The key advantage is that our electrodes are made from biowaste using a simple process, and therefore, are much cheaper than graphene.”

India: Supreme Court HPV Vaccine Controversy Continues

by Norma Erickson

New Delhi: A petition currently before the Supreme Court alleges that the Drugs Controller of India issued licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix without adequate research on safety. The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare had asked for a premier investigating agency to inquire into it way back in 2010 and no action has been taken on it.

Petition number 558/2012, filed by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao, seeks to resolve this and several other issues by asking the Supreme Court of India to rescind the licenses for marketing and administration of HPV vaccines, make provisions to identify and treat any girls left with chronic health problems and/or autoimmune disorders after their participation in HPV vaccine trials, and strengthen the regulation of the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH) and other foreign NGOs so that they do not flout the laws of the country with such impunity...

SHOW ME! Governor!

While Case declined to comment further, citing the ongoing investigation into Brown’s death, another person familiar with the county’s investigation told The Washington Post that Brown had between six and eight gunshot wounds and was shot from the front.

In addition, Brown had marijuana in his system when he was shot and killed by a police officer on Aug. 9 in Ferguson, according to this person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the ongoing investigation.

Africa goes medieval in its fight against Ebola

As the Ebola epidemic claims new victims at an ever-increasing rate, African governments in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia have instituted a "cordon sanitaire," deploying troops to forcibly isolate the inhabitants in an area containing most of the cases.

Will this work? Some commentators, such as the New Republic's Laurie Garrett, contend that it could stop the spread of the disease, citing a 1995 outbreak in Kikwit, Zaire. In that instance, the dictator Mobutu Sese Seko cordoned off the city in order to stop the disease from spreading.

Putting aside the fact that the 1995 outbreak was small and localized, whereas the current epidemic is now raging in several places, the cordon sanitaire -- also known as a "shotgun quarantine" -- has a distinctly mixed historical track record.

The Real Problem with Processed Foods in America

by K.J. McLaughlin

Recently, an announcement from the American Society for Nutrition (ASN), a respected authority on nutrition policy, noted that processed foods are an important part of the U.S. food supply because they are widely available and meet current nutritional guidelines.

This statement was recently published in the prestigious American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

According to Dr. Connie Weaver, the principal author, these foods can have a positive impact on health, but when consumed “inappropriately or at inordinately high proportions of a total diet, [they] are deleterious to health.”

Did I just read this correctly?

Only after I read this report did I realize that there is an established direct link between some of the authors of this report and the food processing industry in the U.S.

Great moments in failed predictions

In 1885, the US Geological Survey announced that there was “little or no chance” of oil being discovered in California.

In 1891, it said the same thing about Kansas and Texas. (See Osterfeld, David. Prosperity Versus Planning : How Government Stifles Economic Growth. New York : Oxford University Press, 1992.)

In 1939 the US Department of the Interior said that American oil supplies would last only another 13 years.

1944 federal government review predicted that by now the US would have exhausted its reserves of 21 of 41 commodities it examined. Among them were tin, nickel, zinc, lead and manganese.

In 1949 the Secretary of the Interior announced that the end of US oil was in sight.

How neonicotinoid pesticides are poisoning Canada's agriculture

Meanwhile, neonicotinoid usage is soaring. According to Health Canada's Pest Control Sales Reports, sales went from just over 100,000 kg in 2008 to nearly 300,000 kg in 2010. Two neonicotinoids, thiamethoxam and clothianidin, vaulted into the top 10 list of insecticides -- even though only small amounts of these compounds are applied per hectare because of their high toxicity.

Pesticide-coated seeds accounted for most of the increased sales. Neonicotinoid use has grown to the extent that it is difficult for Canadian farmers to buy seeds for major crops such as corn and soybeans (and soon, wheat) that aren't treated with these nerve poisons.

This means ever-increasing levels in our food. In a study published in 2014, researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health analyzed fresh fruits and vegetables purchased from neighbourhood grocery stores in Boston. They found that "all fruit and vegetable samples (except nectarine and tomato) and 90 per cent of honey samples were detected positive for at least one neonicotinoid; 72 per cent of fruits, 45 per cent of vegetables, and 50 per cent of honey samples contained at least two different neonicotinoids."

Just To Let You All Know...

The total quantity of lava erupted - 14 cubic kilometers - was not that much more than Mount Pinatubo (largest eruption of the 20th century)'s 10 cubic kilometers. But the eruption kicked out a staggering 120 million tons of sulfur dioxide, compared to Pinatubo's 17 million - nearly supervolcano levels. Also unusually, Laki emitted 8 million tons of hydrogen fluoride - normally a trace volcanic gas. These gasses created the "Laki Haze" across Europe. In Iceland, the consequences were most severe - a quarter of the population starved or died of fluoride poisoning, and most of the livestock died. Denmark considered evacuating the entire island.

Is Laki threatening to go off? No. Then why do I mention him?

Because his big sister IS threatening to go off.

Michael Brown shooting: Private autopsy results revealed

The last 2 shots were fired at a downward angle. One in the top of the skull ranging downwards,no mention of exit. The second headshot ranging downwards through the right eye,through his face downward into his collar bone.
Some are now suggesting that Mike Brown lowered his head like a bull and charged head down into the 2 bullets that killed him. More likely he was on the ground with head facing his shooter who popped him once in the top of the head and once through the right eye,jaw and out into the collar bone. It took over 30 minutes to be called in. Plenty of time to clean up!

Everything About Colloidal Silver

Two thousand, three hundred years ago, Alexander The Great was surveying his battlefield and drinking water from silver urns. He knew nothing about bacteria, but he knew that silver containers have a seemingly miraculous way of keeping water fresh. Silver has been used for thousands of years in different forms for its health benefits. Throughout the middle ages, the wealthy gave their children silver spoons to suck upon to stave off illnesses. People have known about the benefits of silver for so long that it is incorporated into legends. Silver is the recommended agent for killing vampires, werewolves, and various forms of the so-called undead. According to ancient legend, a silver dagger was all that a knight needed to vanquish evil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Ebola in the news, and suspected cases already showing up in Hing King and the UK, people (if not their governments) are very worried about the current strain, which kills 56% of everyone it infects. Now I want to be clear here. Nobody has done an actual study whether Colloidal Silver will protect you from the Ebola virus. However there are studies that confirm Colloidal Silver's effectiveness against some 650 other infectious diseases. Contrast that with the average anti-biotic, which usually works against maybe 15 diseases. Given that colloidal silver cannot be patented and used for profit by the big pharmaceutical corporations, they have little interest in funding such research. Indeed the big pharmaceutical companies lobbied the FDA to totally ban colloidal silver in 1998, but a huge public outcry forced the FDA to allow it to be sold again, but only in very diluted amounts.

So, with no cure for Ebola, and a vaccine still years away (even if it can be proven safe), many people may be willing to "roll the dice" and use colloidal silver if Ebola shows up in their area.

Here is how I make my own colloidal silver.

Click for larger image

Above all, cleanliness is imperative! I use vinegar to clean the beaker and the .9999 silver rods (purchased from eBay). Some websites say you can use silver coins in an emergency, but that will result in other metals being driven into the solution that you may not want in your body.

After cleaning, fill the beaker with distilled water. Do NOT use bottled mineral water as you may get unexpected chemical reactions. Heat the water in the beaker to just below boiling as the hotter the water is the finer and more effective the particles of silver will be.

Insert the silver rods and connect to a 30 volt DC power supply. 30 volts is ideal, but you can get by using three 9 volt batteries connected in series. If you are using two silver rods, polarity does not matter.

Use a TDS meter (available for free when you buy a Zero Water pitcher or you can also find these on eBay) to measure the PPM silver count. We process to 25ppm in our setup.

Because distilled water is a poor conductor of electricity, it takes a while to start getting the silver into the water. Once the silver does start entering the water, the water will conduct electricity more easily and the process will accelerate. What I do is take 100ml of colloidal silver from a previous run and add it to the water as a feedstock, which greatly accelerates the process.

This setup produces 2000ml of 25ppm colloidal silver in just a few hours.

The finished product should be very pale yellow and there should be no precipitates if your setup was properly cleaned. Filter and bottle in clean dark brown or blue glass bottles, do NOT use plastic or metal, and store in a dark place as strong light will cause the silver to lose its ionization and become less effective. If you start to see dark precipitates forming, your batch is contaminated, and the prudent thing to do is start over.

After you are done, clean the silver rods again using vinegar and store in a ziplock bag until the next time.

I spent about $100 building this setup (mostly for the power supply) but an equivalent amount of colloidal silver from the local health food store would cost the same, so as of the second run, we are saving money.

Ebola and Climate Change: Are Humans Responsible for the Severity of the Current Outbreak?

In a study published in 2012, researchers asked national infectious disease experts in 30 different countries whether or not they thought climate change would affect infectious disease patterns in their countries. The majority agreed.

Nevertheless, it’s unclear whether these beliefs are driven by good science, or, as Malcolm Gladwell argued way back in 1995, a guilt-driven “idea of disease as a punishment for wickedness.”

Tropical Storm KARINA

NHC tropical cyclone forecast tracks can be in error. This forecast uncertainty is conveyed by the track forecast "cone", the solid white and stippled white areas in the graphic. The solid white area depicts the track forecast uncertainty for days 1-3 of the forecast, while the stippled area depicts the uncertainty on days 4-5. Historical data indicate that the entire 5-day path of the center of the tropical cyclone will remain within the cone about 60-70% of the time. To form the cone, a set of imaginary circles are placed along the forecast track at the 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, and 120 h positions, where the size of each circle is set so that it encloses 67% of the previous five years official forecast errors. The cone is then formed by smoothly connecting the area swept out by the set of circles.

Through the story of an Israeli woman, identified as Ophira Dorin, the report showed how easy it is to illegally purchase a kidney via transplant brokers in Israel.

Dorin told the daily that she paid USD 175,000 for a kidney transplant surgery which was arranged to take place in Costa Rica. However, a confidential Costa Rican court document shows that the donor, who was an unemployed 37-year-old man, received only USD 18,500 for his kidney.

Worse, as coffee becomes in shorter supply, chances will increase that these non-coffee fillers will be mixed in with your favorite blend in the future.

There is some good news, though: There is a highly accurate test in the works that will quickly identify any coffees containing unwanted fillers before the beverage hits store shelves and restaurants.

What? California Hospitals Charge US$10 to US$10,000 for a Blood Test

A recent study published in BMJ Open, the online publication of the British Medical Journal, found that California hospitals charge anywhere between US$10 to US$10,000 dollars for a simple blood test.

The shocking price range was discovered by researchers for the University of California at San Francisco when it checked the prices for the 10 most common types of blood tests at 160 to 180 California hospitals in 2011.

For a basic metabolic panel, the average charge was US$214 with different hospitals charging a very wide range of US$35 to US $7,303. The test measures sodium, potassium and glucose levels in the blood.

Agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals causing male fish to become egg-carrying mutants

A new analysis of fish living in the Delaware, Ohio and Susquehanna rivers of Pennsylvania has revealed a shocking truth about the chemicals being sprayed on our food and given to us as "medicine" (i.e. pharmaceutical drugs). According to a paper published in the journal Environmental Monitoring and Assessment, drugs and pesticides are almost universally transforming otherwise male fish into egg-carrying, "intersex" mutant fish that are both male and female.

Health Department, CDC testing New Mexico woman for Ebola

The New Mexico Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are performing tests to determine if a 30-year-old New Mexico woman has Ebola.

The woman returned earlier this month from Sierra Leone, which is one of several countries in West Africa with known cases of Ebola.

The woman has sore throat, head ache, muscle aches and fever and is in stable condition at University of New Mexico Hospital.

She had no known exposure to Ebola and health department officials said the tests are being done “out of an abundance of caution.”

If You Promote A Cure For Ebola, Men With Guns Could Show Up At Your Door

If I had a cure for Ebola, I could never sell it to you. I don’t have a cure for Ebola of course, but even if I did I could never promote it. And if you have a cure for Ebola and you start promoting it on the Internet, men with guns could soon show up at your door. Unfortunately, I am not kidding. Even if you have made a discovery that could potentially save millions of lives, that will not earn you an ounce of mercy from the FDA. In fact, the FDA has just issued a statement that contains a chilling warning for anyone that is claiming that they know how to prevent or cure Ebola. And without a doubt, FDA bureaucrats are scouring the Internet right now for any sign of an Ebola cure or treatment. When they find one, they are likely to crack down very hard based on their history. So if you do have a cure for Ebola, you might want to be very, very careful. You could end up having men with automatic weapons conducting a military-style raid on your home when you least expect it.

Ebola drug derived from GM tobacco could cause cancer, elephantiasis and other serious side effects

Known as ZMapp, an experimental Ebola drug containing derivatives of GM tobacco bears resemblances to earlier experimental drugs that used the same technology -- and that failed miserably. One experimental drug given to patients at Northwick Park Hospital in London back in 2006 resulted in one man having his head swell, and several others developing signs of cancer.

Three others, according to The Sunday Times, were told that they had an extremely high likelihood of developing incurable autoimmune diseases from the drug, known as TGN1412, which contained GM monoclonal antibodies. The side effects from the drug, made by a Germany-based firm, were so dramatic, in fact, that it was quickly dubbed the "Elephant Man drug," in reference to a participant whose head essentially blew up.

The Ebola Outbreak: U.S. Sponsored Bioterror?

We can now be extraordinarily confident that the U.S. government is lying, in key material respects, about the latest Ebola outbreak—and not just because it lies about nearly everything of political consequence. This article shows that there are compelling reasons to believe we are being told three big lies about Ebola. It also offers a simple, rational, yet disturbing, explanation that very tidily accounts for all three lies. The explanation supposes that the current Ebola outbreak consists in an act of U.S.-linked bioterror.

The violence in the West Point slum occurred late Saturday and was led by residents angry that patients were brought to the holding center from other parts of Monrovia, Tolbert Nyenswah, assistant health minister, said Sunday.

NASA gets rare glimpse at black hole

Scientists have caught a better-than-ever view of the way that black holes can drag space and time around with them as they spin, a finding that could lead to new understanding of Einstein's theory of relativity.

Nasa’s Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) captured the effect when a compact source of X-rays, known as the corona, moved towards the black hole and was pulled into it. That blurred and stretched the X-rays, a phenomenon that is rarely captured and has never been studied in such detail before

Another Reason Why Wheat and GMOs Can Destroy Your Health

Fundamentally, this study indicates that wheat is not something that we want to eat. It forces our body to become inhabitants of strains of bacteria that we have never before needed to occupy our bodies, and which are capable of doing great harm. While some of the strains that degrade gluten are non-pathogenic (e.g. 39% were from the mostly beneficial Lactobacillus family), taken as a whole, the discovery that a variety of Clostridium strains (as well as related potentially pathogenic strains from genuses such as Klebsiella and Staphylococcus) thrive in a wheat-based diet, and adding in the fact that GMO foods further contribute to their overgrowth, it seems that the pathway towards optimal health requires the elimination of both.

Michael Brown, Ferguson and the indifference towards the lives of young black men

Many Americans share president Barack Obama’s sentiment regarding the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. This is clearly indicated in the deeply felt hurt experienced by so many and the massive swell of moral support people of all backgrounds offered to the young man’s parents in recent days.

But to suggest that all, or even most, Americans feel the same would be severely misleading. Some citizens, drawing on media-fed imagery and timeworn stereotypes of young black men, have gone so far as to suggest that the unarmed teenager’s tragic death at the hands of a Ferguson police officer was self-inflicted, of his own doing, deserved and the result of his defiance of state authority.

A young man with a promising future notwithstanding, too many in the United States view the disputed events that led to Brown’s death as the reasonable, albeit unfortunate, consequence of his errant behaviour.

Parental Incarceration Can Be Worse for a Child Than Divorce or Death of a Parent

Activist Post

With more than 2 million people behind bars, the U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world. This mass incarceration has serious implications for not only the inmates, but their children, finds a new University of California-Irvine study.

The study found significant health problems, including behavioral issues, in children of incarcerated parents and also that, for some types of health outcomes, parental incarceration can be more detrimental to a child's well-being than divorce or the death of a parent...

Mother of policeman that shot dead Michael Brown was 'a serial con artist who defrauded thousands of dollars from neighbors in stolen credit card scheme'

Neighbors claim the policeman accused of shooting dead an unarmed teenager in St Louis had a serial con woman for a mother, MailOnline can reveal.

Darren Wilson’s mum Tonya Durso won the trust of her neighbors then cheated them out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by stealing their identities and taking out vast loans and credit card debt.

At the time she committed the offenses she was on parole for similar crimes elsewhere the state and afterwards died at the age of 35 under mysterious circumstances.

Neighbors today revealed how they were stunned that Wilson became a police officer after his mother behaved so deviously towards them.

Fracking – another commodity bubble of our times

Meanwhile, The New York Times has previously leaked emails which included this ominous warning from a respected analyst: “The word in the world of independents is that the shale plays are just giant Ponzi schemes and the economics just do not work.”

All this investment is creating copious wells, at twice the price of ordinary ones, and because they are, first production is taking place at about the same time, the initial figures look great. This fuels further blind equity but then, as mentioned earlier, the output drops extremely fast.

Just like the housing bubble of the early years of this century, the fashion for fracking is also heading towards a cliff. Once the attractive spots have been milked, production will slump and many wells will not even take off at all, following the example of Poland where drilling dozens of wells has led to nothing.

It’s obvious that a few years from now, fracking will be seen as this period’s equivalent of the tulip and dot-com convulsions.

Japanese Scientist Makes Poop Burger (VIDEO)

The scientist is hoping that the new type of meat will one day replace real meat, which is more expensive to produce. He claims that the new poop burger is actually healthier than real meat (poop meat has less fat and hence less calories) and is more environment-friendly (cows supposedly contribute around 18 percent of our greenhouse gas emissions).

I thought this was a joke at first, but it is not.

Molten salt nuclear reactor that eats radioactive waste gets funded

Reactors like the one proposed by Transatomic use salt mixed with the nuclear fuel to slow the reaction. When the temperature goes up, the salt expands and reduces the rate of fission. Since salt’s melting point is higher than the core temperature, even if power is lost and no one is around to fix things, the reaction will eventually stop on its own. This technology has been proposed before, but Transatomic says it can do it better with improved internal reactor geometry (PDF). This is what could allow it to fuel a reactor with nuclear waste or mined uranium at enrichment levels as low as 1.8 percent.

Lawyer: Store didn't call cops on Michael Brown

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) - The attorney for a convenience store where a Missouri teenager allegedly stole cigars before he was shot by police says a customer, not store workers, called police.

Ferguson police released surveillance video Friday that they say shows 18-year-old Michael Brown grabbing the shirt of a smaller man who'd walked out from behind the counter. Police say Brown was suspected of stealing a box of $49 cigars.

The store's attorney, Jay Kanzler, insisted Friday that store workers didn't call police.

Ebola Outbreak 'Vastly Underestimated': Health Experts

The Ebola outbreak has been "vastly underestimated" and requires containment efforts far greater than those currently being taken, health experts warn.

The outbreak of the virus in West Africa—described as the worst ever—has already killed over 1,000 people in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria, and Sierra Leone and has infected nearly 2,000.

In a statement issued Thursday, the World Health Organization (WHO) said, "Staff at the outbreak sites see evidence that the numbers of reported cases and deaths vastly underestimate the magnitude of the outbreak."

There's 4 sides to every story! No video on cash far!

I've watched the video released by the police in Ferguson Missouri.
One question! Where is the view of the cashier and cash register? All I see is 3 sides of the store. Front door where you see the kid and his friend come in and then go out with some kind of a shoving contest between the big guy and the little guy. The other view is of a long wall with racks and soda dispenser all the way to the back wall. No angle on the cash register or cashier.
Why did they leave out that angle. Does it show the 2 individuals making their purchase or not. Do the police have that third angle. What does it show!

UPDATE:We know now the store didn't call the police. Supposedly a customer did.
We also know courtesy of the police chief that his officer didn't know about any strongarmed robbery at the convenience store at the time of the shooting.
The story keeps changing always a sign that something is amiss!

Ebola outbreak vastly underestimated, WHO says

The magnitude of the Ebola outbreak in west Africa, which has killed more than 1,000 people, has been vastly underestimated and will require “extraordinary measures, on a massive scale” if it is to be contained, the World Health Organisation has warned.

The admission came as Médecins sans Frontières (MSF), the medical charity, said the disease was spreading “faster than we can respond to”, and accused the WHO of being too slow to react.

The outbreak, which is the worst to date, has killed 1,069 people, with 1,975 cases recorded in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria. However, the WHO fears the figures are unreliable.
