FDA Approves New Treatment For ADHD Using Electrical Shocks To The Forehead

There’s an exciting breakthrough for the treatment of ADHD, and it does not involve drugs.

It’s the first FDA-approved medical device for the condition and CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports that it works by stimulating nerves in the forehead.

The device, called Monarch eTNS, stimulates different nerves in a similar way that studies have shown stimulating nerves in the neck are effective for controlling epilepsy and depression.

It’s easy to think of ADHD as just young kids, usually boys, being full of energy and rambunctious – until you see what one mother deals with when her nine-year-old is unmedicated.

How Amazon automatically tracks and fires warehouse workers for ‘productivity’

Amazon’s fulfillment centers are the engine of the company — massive warehouses where workers track, pack, sort, and shuffle each order before sending it on its way to the buyer’s door.

Critics say those fulfillment center workers face strenuous conditions: workers are pressed to “make rate,” with some packing hundreds of boxes per hour, and losing their job if they don’t move fast enough. “You’ve always got somebody right behind you who’s ready to take your job,” says Stacy Mitchell, co-director of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and a prominent Amazon critic.

Documents obtained by The Verge show those productivity firings are far more common than outsiders realize. In a signed letter last year, an attorney representing Amazon said the company fired “hundreds” of employees at a single facility between August of 2017 and September 2018 for failing to meet productivity quotas.

The Amazon Alexa technology really is one of the perfect products for our era. It’s easy, it’s convenient, and it’s a privacy nightmare that serves as a constant reminder of the fact that we live in a techno-dystopia of our own making. If you still have an Alexa or any other voice assistant in your home, you were warned. If you haven’t tossed your Echo into the sea by now, that’s on you.

Mish: Boeing 737 Max Unsafe To Fly, New Scathing Report By Pilot, Software Designer

A pilot with 30 years of flying experience and 40 years of design experience rips decisions made by Boeing and the FAA.

Gregory Travis, a software developer and pilot for 30 years wrote a scathing report on the limitations of the 737, and the arrogance of software developers unfit to write airplane code.

Travis provides easy to understand explanations including a test you can do by sticking your hand out the window of a car to demonstrate stall speed.

Design shortcuts meant to make a new plane seem like an old, familiar one are to blame.

This was all about saving money. Boeing and the FAA pretend the 737-Max is the same aircraft as the original 737 that flew in 1967, over 50 years ago.

Travis was 3 years old at the time. Back then, the 737 was a smallish aircraft with smallish engines and relatively simple systems. The new 737 is large and complicated.

Trey Gowdy Is Sitting On A Bombshell That Has Loretta Lynch On Edge

Things are even worse than Barack Obama imagined.

Republicans in Congress haven’t given up on investigating the criminal activity in the Obama administration.

And one key Republican let it slip that Trey Gowdy is sitting on a bombshell that should have Barack Obama on edge.

Last year, Republicans in the House wrapped up their investigation into the Department of Justice’s bias against Donald Trump.

Trey Gowdy helped kick off the investigation when he was Chairman of the House Oversight Committee.

The transcripts of witness interviews are still under wraps, meaning that the American public has yet to learn the true depths of the bias against Trump and the possible criminal conduct of Barack Obama’s Deep State agents.

Women who use antibiotics for more than two months are 35% more likely to suffer a heart attack or a stroke, study finds

Experts believe the long-term use of the drugs wipes out healthy bacteria in the gut - creating an imbalance that increases inflammation, narrows blood vessels and ends up damaging the heart.

They think this creates a cumulative effect, so the more frequently a woman uses antibiotics during her lifetime, the greater the eventual risk.

UN Gains Access to Shelters at Syria’s Rukban Camp for First Time – Official

The United Nations for the first time gained access to shelters at Syria's Rukban refugee camp and called for a third humanitarian aid delivery after assessing the situation there, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Ursula Mueller said during a UNSC meeting on Wednesday.

“Today our teams accessed the shelters for the first time,” Mueller said. “The deployment of a third humanitarian convoy to Rukban remains urgent – to avoid the deaths of more children.”

Mueller, who is a Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, said Syrian authorities have so far refused to grant the United Nations permission to arrange another humanitarian aid delivery to the camp.

Iranian FM: Trump Doesn't Want War, But Could Be 'Lured Into One'

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif says that Iran is confident in its ability to evade US sanctions, noting that the country has a "Ph.D in that area."

In an exclusive interview with Reuters, Zarif went on to say that he believes US President Donald Trump doesn't want to go to war with Iran, but that he could be "lured into one." In such an event, he noted that Iran would be ready to defend itself.

As for who might goad Trump into a conflict, Zarif named US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, among others. He warned that certain individuals could try to "plot an accident" that would ultimately cause a broader crisis, Reuters reported.

Russia Does Not Agree With Western Attempts to Enforce Values on Others - Putin

Certain Western countries voice claims for exclusive global leadership, resorting to blackmail and sanctions to try to impose their values on other states, Russian President Vladimir Putin said, adding that Moscow was against such policies.

"Unfortunately, some Western countries voice claims for the exclusive global leadership. They boldly violate the norms and principles of international law and resort to blackmailing, imposing sanctions and pressure and try to impose their values and vague ideals on whole countries and peoples … We absolutely do not agree with such approaches", Putin said in an interview with the Chinese Renmin Ribao (People's Daily) newspaper, published ahead of his visit to Beijing later this week.

In the interview to the People's Daily, Putin argued that bilateral Russia-China relations were a "stabilizing factor in global affairs", adding that the two countries share views on key contemporary issues.

Lebanon Threatens to Strike Israeli Airport if Military Conflict Erupts - Report

The Lebanese defence minister ruled out the possibility of military conflict with Tel Aviv in the near future, however.

Lebanon's Defence Minister Elias Bou Saab has warned that the Lebanese Air Force will strike Israel's Ben Gurion airport in the event of a military conflict between the two states, the Jerusalem Post reported, citing Hezbollah's al-Manar news site.

Speaking during his tour to the southern part of the country, the minister promised Beirut will react symmetrically to Tel Aviv's military actions.

"If Israel bombards our airport, we will bombard its airport; if it strikes our oil facilities, we will strike its oil facilities," he was quoted as saying by al-Manar.

Trump May Recognise West Bank as Israeli Land After Jerusalem & Golan – Analyst

The Israeli elections on 9 April resulted in the victory of Benjamin Netanyahu, who was officially appointed as the country's prime minister on 17 April. Speaking to Sputnik, Israeli publicist Avigdor Eskin shared his opinion on what to expect from the Netanyahu cabinet in the near future.

Avigdor Eskin, an Israeli political analyst and publicist who predicted Netanyahu's victory back in November 2018, believes that Washington and Tel Aviv will continue to strengthen Israel's positions in the region following the de facto recognition of Jerusalem on 14 May 2018 and Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights on 25 March 2019.

"I anticipate Israeli official recognition of towns and villages on the West Bank (Judea and Samaria) as a part of the state and I also anticipate US recognition. We will also see the attempts to negotiate with Gaza. Egypt will play an important role", the Israeli publicist foresees.

US Faces ‘Test of Power’ in Trying to Enforce Iran Sanctions - Ex-EU Consultant

On Monday, the US government announced that it would not renew waivers for Iranian oil importers that are valid through 1 May, 2019. The waivers were granted to eight countries: China, India, Italy, Greece, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Turkey in November 2018.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told reporters at the United Nations on Wednesday that Iran will continue to sell its oil despite US sanctions and survive Washington’s attempt to deal with Tehran through oppression.

Coverup of US Navy SEAL’s Civilian Murders Par for the Course

After one US Navy SEAL was accused of committing war crimes in Iraq, it revealed a larger system of coverups and a culture that discouraged reporting war crimes and other abuses. Two veterans-turned-anti-war activists told Sputnik that all wars are war crimes and that Americans need to stop romanticizing the military.

Chief Special Warfare Operator Edward "Eddie" Gallagher has been accused of a slew of war crimes in Iraq, including killing an unarmed Daesh fighter with a knife and firing indiscriminately on civilians, as well as specifically targeting individual civilians and shooting them with his sniper rifle. He was charged with premeditated murder in January, among other crimes.

Kim-Putin summit: What talks in Russia mean for US following Trump's Hanoi fiasco

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is shrouded in the veil of political uncertainty, but analysts believe it could be a roundabout way to reboot denuclearization talks with the US.

The meeting is taking place in Vladivostok, 129 kilometers from the border Russia shares with North Korea. It is Russia’s shortest international border, only 17km along the Tyumen River. Since the demise of the Soviet Union, North Korea has figured little in Moscow’s geopolitical calculus, as Russia sided with the West in backing UN sanctions against Pyongyang.

The collapse of denuclearization talks between Kim and US President Donald Trump in Hanoi back in February, however, appears to have pushed Pyongyang and Moscow closer together. What does that mean for Washington?

‘Stop talking about it’: Navy SEALs say they were warned against reporting chief for war crimes

A group of Navy SEAL commandos from Team 7's Alpha Platoon allege that they were warned by top brass against reporting their commanding officer for possible war crimes in Iraq.

Special Operations Chief Edward ‘Blade’ Gallagher, 39, a highly decorated platoon chief, has been accused by several members of his platoon of committing atrocities in Iraq. These include: indiscriminately bombarding civilian neighborhoods with rocket and machine-gun fire, opening fire on civilians without provocation and summarily executing a captured, teenage Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) fighter who was undergoing medical treatment by US medics, by stabbing him repeatedly with a custom-made knife and hatchet.

President Rouhani: Iran will not talk with US as long as it keeps lying

President Hassan Rouhani says Washington’s claims of seeking negotiations with Iran are “mere lies” and that the United States, in fact, intends to force the Iranian nation to its knees.

Contrary to what some are trying to promote, “the US does not possess the willingness for negotiations at all,” the president told a cabinet session in Tehran on Wednesday.

“The actions that it is taking are aimed at defeating the Iranian nation” and “making a return” to Iran, he added, referring to Washington’s ample presence and influence in the country prior to the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

Rouhani said the US subversive measures against Iran have all failed on international, regional, and political arenas, and that its propagandist attempts targeting the Islamic Republic have all been defeated.

Washington has been and will likewise be frustrated in its anti-Iran economic drive, he added.

North Korea 'executes four foreign ministry officials' after accusing them of selling information to the US ahead of Kim Jong-un's failed summit with the US

Four North Korean officials have reportedly been executed for selling information to the US ahead of the failed nuclear arms meeting between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump, it emerged today.

The four workers, all said to be from the foreign ministry, were allegedly killed by firing squad after talks in Vietnam between the two countries broke down.

One of the four, said to have been shot dead in the capital Pyongyang earlier this month, was reportedly a diplomat from North Korea's embassy in Hanoi.

Dictator Kim, 35, blamed the failure of the summit on information leaked to the US before the meeting at the Metropole Hotel in Hanoi in February, according to Japanese news agency Asia Press.

The executions were watched by members of the Workers' Party of Korea (WPK) and Korean People's Army, according to reports by local media.

Deutsche Bank is giving Trump's financial records to New York prosecutors after congressional Democrats subpoenaed them amid claims Mueller saw president's tax returns

Deutsche Bank has begun complying with New York prosecutors' requests for documents related to Trump Organization properties – even as the president digs in his heels against congressional subpoenas.

The German bank, which became a primary lender for Trump's company when other sources of credit were drying up, is in the process of handing over documents to New York Attorney General Letitia James, CNN reported.

State prosecutors sought documents after longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen testified that Trump inflated his net worth while seeking to purchase the Buffalo Bills NFL franchise in 2014.

Two House committees, the Intelligence panel and the House Financial Services Committee, also sent the bank inquiries for financial information on Trump.

Facebook announced Monday that Jennifer Newstead, a Trump appointee who served in the Department of Justice (DoJ) under President Bush, will join the social media company as General Counsel, supervising its global legal functions.

Newstead replaces Colin Stretch, who announced in 3Q18 that he will exit. Stretch will remain with Facebook through the transition phase, expected to be completed in the coming months.

"Jennifer is a seasoned leader whose global perspective and experience will help us fulfill our mission," said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer. "We are also truly grateful to Colin for his dedicated leadership and wise counsel over the past nine years. He has played a crucial role in some of our most important projects and has created a strong foundation for Jennifer to build upon."

Newstead brings a terrifying history of lobbying and legislating for an Orwellian style of mass electronic surveillance of Americans.

Billions In African Gold Being Smuggled Through UAE By Crime Syndicates: Report

A bombshell investigative report by Reuters has blown open a hitherto under-reported massive black market trade which has seen billions of dollars worth of gold smuggled out of Africa and sold to Europe via "middle man" countries like the United Arab Emirates and others in the Middle East.

The investigation found the Middle East to be the illicit gold "gateway to markets in Europe, the United States and beyond" based on new analysis of customs data, showing tons of off-the-books non-taxed gold pouring out of countries like Ghana, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, Nigeria, and war-torn Libya and Sudan, with no official oversight by the states in which the gold is mined.

The numbers are staggering in terms of the newly revealed whopping unaccounted for increase in Middle East imports for the past decade and more:

New School Textbook Says President Donald Trump Is “Racist” and Worse…

High School Students in Liberal States could soon be assigned a Left Biased History Book. The textbook is put out by Pearson Education and is titled, “By the People: A History of the United States.”

The Book slanders Trump and anyone that followed Trump. If that were not enough it pits police officers against black folks. The textbook is meant for AP students meaning the writer intends to go after the more knowledgeable students with his propaganda.

“The final section of the book, titled, “The Angry Election of 2016” is especially critical of the president.

“Most thought that Trump was too extreme a candidate to win the nomination, but his extremism, his anti-establishment rhetoric, and, some said, his not very hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters,” the author wrote.”

Activists Protect Venezuelan Embassy From US-Supported Coup

Authored by Medea Benjamin and Kevin Zeese via CommonDreams.org,

An extraordinary chapter in the ongoing saga of Venezuela has been taking place, virtually unnoticed, at the Venezuela Embassy that lies in the heart of swanky Georgetown in Washington DC.

A group initiated by CODEPINK and Popular Resistance, all activists opposed to the prospect of the Venezuelan opposition taking over the Embassy, have been living inside the building for the past two weeks, working side-by-side with the skeletal Venezuela diplomatic staff that has been told by the State Department that they must leave by April 24.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What really gets me, in the American way of doing politics, is that we are always, come our (alleged) national election day, voting for the lesser of two evils; and it boils down to that, because in order to be "presented" to the American people as a "great opportunity" to move our country forward.

Unfortunately, it is really the Deep State; the military industrial complex; and the large corporations which have already "chosen" the candidates for us, perhaps not in the "smoke filled rooms" of yesterday, but the 21st century's equivalent thereof.

Mike and I have watched the Trump presidency very carefully, to see if there were going to be any real, fundamental answers to the questions and concerns dogging We the People, and with the tiny exception of a little bit of braggadocio, on Trump's part, regarding illegal immigrants (so far, sound and fury, signifying not one heck of a lot), the short answer is, HELL, no!

The tax cuts upon which he waxed most poetic, have really only favored the already well-monied; the wars we hoped that he would shut down, have not been shut-down, but even further aggravated and intensified; and the sanctions and other attacks in Venezuela?!? Simply a shift in strategy to grab Venezuela's oil, when their first line of offence failed utterly, under Guaido, and flopped, miserably.

We are now looking at wars against China; North Korea; Iran; and Russia; and God only knows who else (most probably Africa, which has some of the most unclaimed natural resources in the world.).

And I have to ask my brother and sister Americans; can this be the same Trump who wrote "The Art of the Deal", now threatening the planet with aggressive wars of conquests, rather than trying to calm things down, in a responsible, measured, nuanced kind of way?!?

Day after day, President Trump reveals who he really is by the foreign policy he dictates; so now, we are dealing the terrifying revelation, that this man, unmasked, is a tyrannical cynical bully, who has, from day 1, been totally absorbed by the Neocon Borg, because he mimics precisely how they would deal with geopolitical issues.

War is his only answer to everything, as we are about to find out, unfortunately...And I think what we may be looking at, here at home, in the not too distant future, is the declaration of a National Emergency, ahead of the next US "Military Misadventure"; the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights; and the resurrection of a draft in this country.

I frankly am experiencing very intense "buyers' remorse" on this guy right now, but folks; with the Dimentocrats having decided to ramrod a Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign down the throats of American voters in 2016, please: what choice did we actually have here?!?

The Russian president stressed that Moscow and Washington both want North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons. But he said the security guarantees should be underwritten by multiple countries, hinting at an arrangement like the six-nation talks Russia participated in until their collapse in 2009.

Putin added that Kim encouraged him to explain the nuances of Pyongyang’s position to President Donald Trump. He said he’s willing to share details of the summit with the American president.

Washington Not Happy About New China Focus on Central America

As it becomes clear that the Trump Administration support, so far unsuccessful, for regime change in Venezuela is also very much about targeting the huge financial presence of China with the Maduro regime, recent news of a major Chinese oil success in Cuban waters will clearly deepen the geopolitical tensions. And it involves not only Venezuela, Guyana and Brazil.

China’s major state-owned oil company, CNPC, through its subsidiary, Great Wall Drilling, has begun exploring for oil off Cuba’s coast in a joint venture with state-owned oil firm Cuba Petroleum Company (CUPET), according to an April 16 report in the China state news agency, Xinhua. Great Wall has been engaged in oil exploration in Cuba since 2005, but this is the most promising result to date. Advanced drilling technology from CNPC has opened the prospect of major oil off Cuba for the first time.

DHS Releases 7K Illegal Aliens into U.S. in Five Days; 1.4K Released Every Day

President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released about 7,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States in the last five days.
The latest catch and release totals obtained by Breitbart News revealed that, currently, DHS is releasing about 1,400 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the U.S. every day. Between April 18 to April 22, DHS released about 7,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the country.

The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities and dropping them off with the promise that they will show up for their immigration and asylum hearings, sometimes years later. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.

Israel accuses Switzerland of funding legal procedures against it

An Israeli newspaper close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday accused Switzerland of spending $2 million on legal activities which it says harm Israel.

Israel Hayom claimed that the Swiss foreign ministry sent an estimated $2 million to Israeli and Palestinian NGOs through its diplomatic mission in Ramallah to pay for legal activities which harm Israel.

According to the Israeli newspaper, the funds were paid to the Israel and Palestinian organisations shortly after the Swiss government ended its support for a Palestinian NGO over its support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, noting that the funds went for similar projects.

Most Americans view Israel government unfavourably, new poll shows

A majority of Americans have an unfavourable view of the Israeli government, a new survey by Pew Research Centre has found.

According to Haaretz, the poll results published yesterday show “a huge partisan divide between Republicans and Democrats with regards to how they view the Israeli and Palestinian peoples”.

The poll, part of a regular series looking at US citizens’ views on Israel and the Palestinians, introduced for the first time questions “that distinguish between the Israeli and Palestinian peoples — and their respective governments”.

While 64 per cent of Americans say they have a favourable opinion of the Israeli people, only 41 per cent have a favourable view of the Israeli government, with 51 per cent viewing the government unfavourably.

Israel army to confiscate Palestinian land for new settlement bypass road

Israeli occupation authorities will confiscate Palestinian land in order to build a new road connecting illegal settlements in the southern occupied West Bank, reported the Jerusalem Post.

According to the report, the so-called bypass road will expand Road 60 that links the Gush Etzion settlement junction with the Kiryat Arba settlement in Hebron.

Settlement watchdog NGO Peace Now provided the paper with a copy of a land confiscation order signed by Israeli occupation authorities on 3 April, for a seven kilometre stretch of the new road.

Work on the road could begin as early as this summer.

Peace Now stated that the 401 dunams (99 acres) of Palestinian land from the towns of Beit Ommar and Halhul will be confiscated for the road construction.

“This expropriation is part of the government’s continued capitulation to the settlers, who want to build bypass roads throughout the West Bank,” Peace Now stated.

5,600 Palestinians in Hebron must cross Israel checkpoint to reach their home

Some 5,600 Palestinian residents of Hebron must cross a checkpoint on foot to reach their homes, according to a new survey conducted by UN OCHA.

The study of so-called H2, an area of direct Israeli control constituting 20 per cent of Hebron city, looked at the impact on local Palestinians of the Israeli military and settler presence.

Around 33,000 Palestinians live in H2, as well as a few hundred illegal Israeli settlers.

“The centre of Hebron has been physically separated from the rest of the city through the deployment of physical obstacles, among other means,” UN OCHA noted, adding that “currently there are 121 such obstacles, including 21 permanently-staffed checkpoints.”

According to the findings of the survey, “some 5,600 Palestinians in the affected areas must cross a checkpoint on foot to reach their homes, including virtually all those residing in the prohibited area and two thirds of the population in the restricted area.”
