US Debt Load Ballooning, Set To Outpace Some African Countries In 5yrs – IMF

The US debt-to-GDP ratio is projected to jump to 116.9 percent by 2023, leaving behind Italy, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
In five years, the American debt burden will also be worse than some countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, such as Mozambique or Burundi.
***
The IMF says its forecasts are similar to those recently published by the Congressional Budget Office. The CBO said the US debt “is far greater than the debt in any year since just after World War II.”

The office also predicted that the debt held by the public will rise from 78 percent of GDP (or $16 trillion) at the end of 2018>>>

he Painful Truth About Last Year’s Failed Flu Vaccine

“…most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.” – From the British Medical Journal editor, Peter Doshi, MD

“71 people would need to be treated with the flu vaccine to prevent one case. In other words, the flu vaccine did nothing for 70 out of 71 who received it. That means this study found the flu vaccine failed 99% (70/71).” — Dr David Brownstein

“Under ideal conditions (when the vaccine actually matches the main viruses circulating that season) you need to vaccinate 33 healthy adults to avoid one set of influenza symptoms. 33 is what is called the NNV (Number Needed to Vaccinate).” – Dr Tom Jefferson of the Cochrane Collaboration (Cochrane Database Syst. Rev. 2018. Feb. 1,2:CD001269)

NH365 110: Toxic Bras – Cancer Risks EXPOSED

According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), the “internet and e-mail rumors and at least one book have suggested that bras cause breast cancer by obstructing lymph flow. There is no good scientific or clinical basis for this claim, and a 2014 study of more than 1,500 women found no association between wearing a bra and breast cancer risk.”

That book they are referring to … no doubt, has everything to do with my special guest – who will expose the true connection between bras and breast cancer.

P.C.Roberts: The Trump Regime Is Insane

Is it insane to push for war with Russia, a major nuclear power?
Is it insane to threaten Russia and bring false charges against her?
Is it insane to brag about killing “hundreds of Russians”?

A normal person would answer “yes” to the three questions. So what does this tell us about Trump’s government as these insane actions are the principle practice of Trump’s government?

Does anyone doubt that Nikki Haley is insane?

Does anyone doubt that John Bolton is insane?

Does anyone doubt that Mike Pompeo is insane?

Does this mean that Trump is insane for appointing to the top positions insane people who foment war with a nuclear power?

Does this mean that Congress is insane for approving these appointments?

These are honest questions.

Assuming we avoid the Trump-promised Syrian showdown, how long before the insane Trump regime orchestrates another crisis?

Top medical journals accused of skewing research by raking in millions of dollars in 'bribes' from drugs firms

Several of the top medical journals in the US have found to be raking in millions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies, a practice that calls the reliability of those journals into question.

Nearly two thirds of medical research in the US is underwritten by companies, totaling more than $100 billion annually.

This is potentially problematic because companies have a financial stake in study results and thus could have an incentive to publicly report results that put them in a favorable light and conceal less flattering findings.

Reports have revealed that many top medical journals may be financially motivated to publish the studies that are unfairly skewed in favor of drug firms both through printing fees and payments to journal editors.

Popular Android Phone Manufacturers Caught Lying About Security Updates

Android ecosystem is highly broken when it comes to security, and device manufacturers (better known as OEMs) make it even worse by not providing critical patches in time.

According to a new study, most Android vendors have been lying to users about security updates and telling customers that their smartphones are running the latest updates.

In other words, most smartphone manufacturers including big players like Samsung, Xiaomi, OnePlus, Sony, HTC, LG, and Huawei are not delivering you every critical security patch they're supposed to, a study by Karsten Nohl and Jakob Lell of German security firm Security Research Labs (SRL) revealed.

Apple has slashed production of its $350 HomePod due to 'tanking' sales, report claims

Apple's HomePod doesn't appear to be as big of a hit as the tech giant had hoped.

In January, the firm finally released its smart home speaker that was bid as a rival to the Amazon Echo and Google Home.

But by last month, Apple slashed sales forecasts for the HomePod as inventory for the device began to pile up, Bloomberg reported, citing sources close to the situation.

It also cut HomePod orders with one of its manufacturers that assembles the device for the company, Inventec, according to Bloomberg.

Making matters worse, Apple Store workers say they're selling fewer than 10 HomePods a day and that inventory continues to grow.

20+ Times Product Packaging Was So Wrong, People Couldn’t Stay Silent Any Longer

Packaging waste equals to about one-third of all trash, costing governments billions of dollars each year in disposal expenses. Bored Panda has collected a set of images, proving this huge contributor to the global waste crisis could be reduced significantly.

Packaging solutions often become the subjects of heated debates. While the eco-minded consumers want it to be as minimal as possible (meaning, fully recyclable), manufacturers often fire back that they don't want their products to start decomposing in the store or become an easy target to shoplifters. And while some of their arguments have reasons behind them, a lot of the time packaging is needlessly excessive. Do we really need a pill to be wrapped in three layers of plastic? Or, better yet, casings for coke cans? Scroll down to learn why we really need to rethink packaging and vote for the worst or most ridiculous images!

California state senator who pushed vaccine mandate now seeks to CRIMINALIZE “fake news” about medicine, politics and government

In the latest stunning assault on the freedom to think, California state senator Richard Pan — known as the “Mercury Joker” super villain for pushing mandatory vaccines into law via SB 277 — now wants to criminalize all bloggers and independent journalists who dare question the official narratives on vaccines, medicine, politics and government.

The quest for absolute authoritarian control never seems to end with these left-wing zealots. And California looks more and more like North Korea with each new law. (Is Richard Pan the long-lost cousin of Kim Jong-Un?)

Ever seeking to limit public debate, crush independent journalism and control all speech, Richard Pan has a new thought control bill entitled, “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.” While the title seems to target social media websites, the language of the bill clearly applies the law to all blogs, news websites, video sites and podcasts. From the proposed law itself:

But on Wednesday, March 28, the agency made its relationship status official; effective immediately, certain gene-edited plants can be designed, cultivated, and sold free from regulation. “With this approach, USDA seeks to allow innovation when there is no risk present,” US Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said in a statement.

Ford recalls 350,000 current-year trucks and SUVs due to ‘rollaway’ potential

The Ford Motor Company has recalled nearly 350,000 F-series pickup trucks and Expeditions from the 2018 model year that were sold in North America. The affected vehicles may have an automatic transmission gear shift cable locking clip that is not fully seated. Drivers could potentially exit a vehicle mistakenly believing the vehicle is in park, which creates the potential for rollaway vehicles.

The recall covers certain 2018 Ford F-150 pickup trucks and 2018 Ford Expedition SUVs with 10-speed automatic transmissions, as well as 2018 F-650 and F-750 trucks with 6-speed automatic transmissions.

Petro-Yuan To Launch Renminbi As Global Currency & Kneecap Petro-Dollar

Yuan-backed oil futures can shatter the US dollar dominance on the crude market, according to experts polled by RT. However, the greenback will not give up the top spot easily.

“The question number one is whether China will be able to make the oil market its demand market, and not the oil supply market traded in dollars, which it is now,” Vladimir Rozhankovsky, Global FX Investment analyst, told RT. China has recently overtaken the US as the world's number one oil buyer.

The question number two is trade wars ... ">>>

“The trade war between the US and China has already begun. China has plans to promote the renminbi as a reserve currency and there is no better move than to purchase raw materials in its national currency. It can save money on the currency conversion and become less dependent on the US dollar,”

A man who claims baby powder gave him cancer has been awarded $30 million in damages.

Stephen Lanzo, 46, sued Johnson & Johnson and one of its suppliers after Stephen was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2016 that he says was caused by the talcum powder products he's used for more than 30 years.

SANDBERG: FACEBOOK USERS WOULD HAVE TO PAY TO OPT OUT OF SHARING DATA

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says that while Facebook doesn't sell or give away its users' information (it just allows third party apps to do that), the company still "depends on your data," and if users wanted to completely opt out of all of the platform's data-driven advertising, they would have to pay for it.

Sandberg made the comments in an interview with Today co-anchor Savannah Guthrie in an interview set to air Friday morning.

So "we don't have an opt-out at the highest level," she acknowledged. "That would be a paid product." -NBC News

The Today interview was one of many Sandberg gave on Thursday as part of a massive damage control and image rehabilitation campaign in the wake of a massive data harvesting scandal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is very interesting that Ms. Sandberg did not quantify what the cost for leaving Facebook would be.

How incredibly hubristic; this person may be a female of the species, but appears to also have been endowed with titanium "male attributes", which click when she walks (that ... has to be at least a little disconserting to her corporate colleagues!! :-))

HERE’S WHY ZUCKERBERG WON’T LOSE HIS JOB ANY TIME SOON

Equifax, eBay, Yahoo, Target — if you patronize these companies and do business online, there’s a chance your data was exposed in one of the largest breaches of the 21st century. Thinking Facebook should be on that list? Here’s why it’s not.

Facebook is indeed guilty of exposing data about 50 million users without their authorization, but the people who acquired that data didn’t hack a single line of code. Instead, they hacked the system. They used social engineering in the most apropos setting you can imagine: the world’s biggest social network.

The plan worked. It might seem like Facebook is in hot water now, but don’t go looking for sweat on Mark Zuckerberg’s gray T-shirt. The boy-wonder CEO has one hell of a get-out-of-jail-free card.

Stolen, Fair and Square

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be a really good time to leave Facebook, never to return, because it has absolutely betrayed the trust of its users.

The tools are available on line as to how.

Do it now.

And to the advertisers still on Facebook; look forward to never be approached by its users again.

It’s Not My Fault, My Brain Implant Made Me Do It

By Laura Y. Cabrera, Michigan State University and Jennifer Carter-Johnson, Michigan State University

Mr. B loves Johnny Cash, except when he doesn’t. Mr. X has watched his doctors morph into Italian chefs right before his eyes.

The link between the two? Both Mr. B and Mr. X received deep brain stimulation (DBS), a procedure involving an implant that sends electric impulses to specific targets in the brain to alter neural activity. While brain implants aim to treat neural dysfunction, cases like these demonstrate that they may influence an individual’s perception of the world and behavior in undesired ways.

Mr. B received DBS as treatment for his severe obsessive compulsive disorder. He’d never been a music lover until, under DBS, he developed a distinct and entirely new music preference for Johnny Cash. When the device was turned off, the preference disappeared...
