Hawaii's Volcano Is Literally Erupting Gems

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has been fiercely erupting for well over a month. Now, residents are finding little green gems that have fallen out of the sky during Kilauea's eruption.

The green gems are olivine crystals, a common mineral found in Hawaii's lava. At jewelry quality, the mineral is called peridot. As the volcano erupts, it blasts apart molten lava, allowing for green olivine minerals to be separated from the rest of the melt and fall as tiny gemstones.

Idaho boy has been diagnosed with the PLAGUE, health officials reveal

A boy in Idaho is recovering after being diagnosed with the plague, health officials have revealed.

It is the first human case in the state since the early 1990s, and is believed to be the only one reported this year.

Today, health officials in Elmore County, just east of the capital Boise, said the boy was diagnosed late last month.

Lab results this week confirmed he had the bubonic plague, which affects the lymph nodes (rather than the more deadly pneumonic plague which affects the lungs).

Officials are racing to determine whether he contracted the disease in Idaho or during a recent family trip to Oregon.

Migration Causes Cognitive Dissonance

Masonic government and media traitors have conflated "immigrant" with "migrant." Any migrant can claim to be an "asylum seeker" and gain entry, merely by crossing some undefended stretch of the border.

Many economic migrants are steaming across the Canadian border from the US where they are anything but refugees.

We pay police and army to stop intruders. But instead of doing their jobs, they are aiding and abetting them.

Philip May's Capital Group profits from British weed-growing op while patients denied access

Charges of hypocrisy have been leveled against the Home Office for not granting patients access to medicinal cannabis, while relatives of Tory MPs are profiting from its production and export.

The accusations first surfaced in an article by Dr John Regan, published last April by the website urhealthguide.com, which accused the government of hypocrisy for its stance on medicinal cannabis.

PUBLIC HEALTH ALERT: IDAHO CHILD INFECTED WITH THE PLAGUE

A very rare case of an Idaho child becoming infected with the plague has health officials urging the public to be on the lookout for the potentially fatal bacterial disease.

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare announced on Tuesday that a child from Elmore County, located between Twin Falls and Boise, contracted the plague.

The child is only the fifth human to suffer from the plague since 1940 in Idaho.

Is NASA'S Opportunity DEAD? Space agency says Mars rover has 'fallen silent' following a megastorm bigger than North America on the red planet

Flight controllers tried late Tuesday night to contact Opportunity, but the rover did not respond.

The storm has been growing since the end of May and now covers one-quarter of the planet.

Controllers expect it will be several more days before there's enough sunlight to recharge Opportunity's battery through its solar panels.

NASA says the battery is likely so low that only a clock is still working, to wake the spacecraft for periodic power-level checks.

A ghost town in the making: How the Salton Sea - California's ‘miracle in the desert’ - went from bustling resort to a stinking 'public health disaster' where the remaining residents choke on toxic dust

The Salton Sea was accidentally created when in 1905 the Colorado River swelled, breached its levees and flooded into the Salton Sink desert valley. For two years the water flowed, creating the Salton Sea – a 15-mile by 35-mile freshwater lake 45miles outside of Palm Springs. By the 1970s it was in decline due to there being almost no rainfall, no way for the lake to drain and runoff water contaminated with pesticides from nearby farms flowed into it. Salt levels increased making it saltier than the Pacific Ocean, depleting oxygen levels in the water. Thousands of fish died annually and washed onto the shore where they shriveled up and decayed in the extreme heat.

Where holidaymakers once sunbathed, the sand is littered with sun-bleached fish carcasses. On hot summer days when the temperature can reach up to 120F (48.8C), a pungent sulphur odor hangs in the air that can be smelled 150 miles away in Los Angeles. In short, the Salton Sea smells of rotten eggs.

Japanese Probe Photographs Target Asteroid Ryugu for Sample-Return Mission

A Japanese asteroid-sampling spacecraft has its target in sight.

The Hayabusa2 probe has photographed Ryugu, the space rock it's scheduled to start orbiting late this month.

One newly released image, which was captured on Sunday (June 10) by Hayabusa2's Optical Navigation Camera-Telescopic (ONC-T), shows the 3,000-foot-wide (900 meters) Ryugu shining like a star against the blackness of space. [Photos: Japan's Hayabusa2 Asteroid Mission in Pictures]

Another Sunday ONC-T shot, which featured a much shorter exposure time (0.09 seconds versus 178 seconds), suggests that the asteroid is not significantly elongated, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) officials said.

Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano Update: 2 New Explosions Rock Summit, Trigger Minor Quakes

Two explosions rocked Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano summit Monday, sending ash into the air and triggering at least one magnitude 5.4 earthquake.

The latest brings the total number of explosions to three in as many days. On Saturday, a small explosion on the summit triggered a magnitude 5.2 earthquake. No damage was reported from the tremor that was felt as far away as Hilo.

Officials say there's no way to know when the Kilauea Volcano will stop erupting on the Big Island, where more than 600 homes have been destroyed by lava.

On Monday, officials began letting some residents return to their homes as lava flowing into the ocean posed no new threat, the Associated Press reports. County Civil Defense Agency Administrator Talmadge Magno said staffing at the operations center would be reduced. He noted that workers could be called in if conditions worsen.

How many opioid overdoses are suicides?

Mady Ohlman was 22 on the evening some years ago when she stood in a friend’s bathroom looking down at the sink.

Trump relies on gut instinct. The North Koreans have 45 years of preparation.
“I had set up a bunch of needles filled with heroin because I wanted to just do them back-to-back-to-back,” Ohlman recalled. She doesn’t remember how many she injected before collapsing, or how long she lay drugged-out on the floor.

“But I remember being pissed because I could still get up, you know?”

She wanted to be dead, she said, glancing down, a wisp of straight brown hair slipping from behind an ear across her thin face.

At that point, said Ohlman, she’d been addicted to opioids — controlled by the drugs — for more than three years.

Traces of drugs, including antidepressants and antibiotics, found in York rivers

TRACES of almost 30 different pharmaceutical drugs, including antidepressants, antibiotics and medicines to treat epilepsy and diabetes, have been found in rivers in York.

Scientists said they found 29 different drug compounds in the River Ouse and River Foss, including some from drugs not usually available in the UK, thought to have been ingested by American and Chinese tourists.

The York University team stressed that although the levels were extremely low - drinking two litres of river water would give you about a millionth of a patient's daily dose of one drug - there were concerns over the long-term implications.

TRANSCANADA’S NEW “BEST-IN-CLASS” GAS PIPELINE EXPLODES IN WEST VIRGINIA, CAUSING FIERY BLAST

A newly installed TransCanada natural gas pipeline exploded early Thursday in the remote Nixon Ridge area of Marshall County in West Virginia.

No injuries were reported but flames and smoke from the blast could be seen as far as 20 miles away, residents told local media. Area police told CBS News the fire was "very large—if you can see it from your house, evacuate."

"It sounded like a freight train coming through, or a tornado, and the sky lit up bright orange, and then I got up and looked out the window and flames were shooting I don't know how far into the sky," Tina Heath-Chaplin, of Moundsville, told WPXI.

TransCanada—the same company behind the Keystone pipeline—said the explosion has been contained and an investigation is underway.

"As soon as the issue was identified, emergency response procedures were enacted and the segment of impacted pipeline was isolated. The fire was fully extinguished by approximately 8:30 a.m," the company commented Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cause is probably, most simply, that the company did the installation on the cheap, and cut corners in both materials and installation proceduures, which resulted in the blowout.

Explosiions like this just "don't happen"; they are caused when all the safety regs in place are ignored, to some degree or other.

Ancient Peruvian skulls found riddled with HOLES reveal the expertise of Inca cranial surgeries that were twice as successful as those performed centuries later in the American Civil War

Long before anesthesia and the advent of precision medical tools, humans were already performing complex surgeries on one another in effort to beat all sorts of ailments.

Among the most gruesome may be the act of trepanation – in which parts of the skull were scraped, cut, or drilled away to treat everything from headaches or injuries to suspected demonic possession.

Hundreds of prehistoric skulls bearing the tell-tale holes of trepanation have been found in Peru alone, dating as far back as the year 400 B.C.

Despite their prehistoric methods, researchers say the ancient neurosurgeons were experts at the task; during the Inca Empire, the survival rate for the procedure was roughly double what was achieved centuries later during the American Civil War.

The use of antidepressants and other mind-altering drugs is absolutely exploding in our society. According to Time Magazine, the use of antidepressants rose almost 65 percent between 1999 and 2014…

A new report from the National Center for Health Statistics shows that from 2011 through 2014, the most recent data available, close to 13% of people 12 and older said they took an antidepressant in the last month. That number is up from 11% in 2005-2008.

The most recent numbers have increased by nearly 65% since 1999-2002, when 7.7% of Americans reported taking an antidepressant.

Famous People Who Died of Auto-Erotic Asphyxiation

Auto-erotic asphyxiation is an often misunderstood sexual proclivity. People who practice auto or self asphyxiation for pleasure derive a sense of sexual arousal from lack of oxygen to the brain. To each his own, of course, but this form of masturbation can be very dangerous-- as this list of famous people who died of autoerotic asphyxiation proves. You might also be interested in famous people who died during sex and celebrity deaths that were never investigated. This list also includes photos, birth dates, professions, and other information. Often considered as accidental suicide, autoerotic asphyxiation has been depicted in erotica for many years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

According to this article, Anthony Bourdain was found hanging from a door knob. This sort of arrangement is commonly used for erotic asphyxiation, so I think we can add Anthony to this list.

Is the International Space Station DOOMED? Budget cuts to the ISS could cause the US to lose the space race to Russia and China, warns former congressman Bob Barr

Ending funding for the International Space Station (ISS) will mean the US is in danger of losing the space race, a top official has warned.

Former congressman Bob Barr said that in the absence of more funding, America's manned space program will start to 'fade to "lights out" starting next year'.

Certain Washington bureaucrats are looking to stop funding for the ISS in the coming years - meaning Russia and China will be most likely to become space leaders, he warned.

Study Reveals 11 Million People Could Be Taking The Wrong Heart Medication

More than 11 million Americans may have incorrect prescriptions for aspirin, statins, and blood pressure medications, according to a new study.

Researchers based their findings on an updated set of calculations — known as pooled cohort equations, or PCEs — used to determine the risk of a heart attack or stroke.

The PCEs are the foundation for cardiovascular-disease-prevention guidelines in the United States. They help physicians decide whether to prescribe aspirin, blood pressure, or statin medications, or some combination of these, by estimating the risk a patient may have for a heart attack or stroke.

Most physicians calculate a patient's risk using a PCE web calculator or a smartphone app; the equations are also built into many electronic health records so that a patient's risk is automatically calculated during an office visit.

Huge Dust Storm on Mars Hits NASA's Opportunity Rover

A massive dust storm on Mars has sidelined NASA's Opportunity rover, stalling the robot's science work as it waits out the still-growing tempest.

The Martian dust storm was first spotted from space by NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, NASA officials said.

"As soon as the orbiter team saw how close the storm was to Opportunity, they notified the rover's team to begin preparing contingency plans," NASA officials said in a statement. "In a matter of days, the storm had ballooned." [The Greatest Mars Discoveries by Opportunity & Spirit]

As of Friday (June 8), the storm covers more than 7 million square miles of Mars (18 million square kilometers), according to NASA. That's an area larger than all of North America on Earth.

"Full dust storms like this one are not surprising, but are infrequent," NASA officials said in the statement. "They can crop up suddenly but last weeks, even months."

ISRAELI PROPAGANDA: F-35I STEALTH FIGHTERS FLY OVER IRAN UNDETECTED

Can't find anything on Iran's AF Chief being fired yet. But if he was fired it wasn't over an Israeli delusion.
Al-Jarida’s claims have been widely spreaded by the Israeli media, but have been questioned by independent experts and even media outlets.
There are few reasons:

Al-Jarida is a media outlet widely associated wirth Israel and involved into Israeli media and propaganda campaign;
The F-35I’s range of 2,000 km [without external fuel tanks] does not allow the warplane to fly over Iran and went back without stopover or aerial refueling;
The claim about the alleged F-35I operation over Iran came a day after Chief of the General Staff of the Israel Defense Force (IDF) Gadi Eizenkot claimed that the Israeli military had resumed striking targets in Syria [without providing any details or evidence];

Congress is proposing big changes to the National Organic Standards Board – and farmers are raising the alarm

As Civil Eats reports, Congress would, for one, like the NOSB to allow employees of organic farmers or producers to be permitted to have board positions. And secondly, Congress has proposed that they begin “allowing politicians to sidestep the NOSB’s authority to approve substances such as the fertilizers and pesticides used in organic production.”

Vet With 2 Double-Lung Transplants Pushes Congress to Act on Burn Pits

"You smelled it every day, and then you'd get these dust storms that just pushed it all around," former Army Staff Sgt. William Thompson said of the fumes and clouds of muck that came off the big burn pit at Camp Victory and other U.S. bases in Iraq.

Thompson has had two double-lung transplants since returning from two tours in Iraq. He attributes them to his exposure to the toxic brew of medical waste, human waste, plastics, tires, electronics, paint cans, routine garbage and the occasional entire Humvee that would be laced with jet fuel and set ablaze at hundreds of sites in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The group has pressed for burn pit exposure to be recognized as a "presumptive" illness, much like Agent Orange, to give veterans access to care and benefits, but the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense maintain that there is no proof of correlation or causality.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please show this article to any thinking about enlisting in the US military, other than those on a fast track toward leadership; enlistees need to understand how completely expendable they are to the DOD, once they have signed up, and if they get ill in performance of their service.

THE GOVERNMENT’S NEW CONTRACTOR TO RUN LOS ALAMOS INCLUDES THE SAME MANAGER IT EFFECTIVELY FIRED FOR SAFETY PROBLEMS

This article was produced in partnership with the Santa Fe New Mexican, which is a member of the ProPublica Local Reporting Network.

Despite a lengthy record of safety violations, the University of California will continue its 75-year legacy of running Los Alamos National Laboratory, the U.S. Department of Energy and National Nuclear Security Administration announced Friday.

A management partnership that includes the university, research and development nonprofit Battelle Memorial Institute and Texas A&M University, the alma mater of Energy Secretary Rick Perry, will be paid $2.5 billion annually to run Los Alamos, the birthplace of the atomic bomb. They’re calling their partnership Triad National Security LLC.

The contract could be worth upward of $25 billion over the next decade, with hundreds of millions of dollars more in performance-based bonus fees. Six other corporations will join the team in support roles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like being cavalier with issues of health and safety, just goes with the territory at Los Alamos.

Dramatic rise in suicides is "more than a mental health issue," CDC says

Just days after the tragic death of fashion icon Kate Spade, which the medical examiner confirmed Thursday was a suicide, new government research sheds light on a disturbing increase in suicides in the United States. The report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shows that suicide rates have risen dramatically across most of the country in the past three decades.

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. and is one of just three leading causes that are on the rise.

"Unfortunately, our data show that the problem is getting worse," CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat, M.D., said in a press briefing on Thursday.

According to the study, the rate of suicide in the U.S. rose nearly 30 percent between 1999 and 2016.

TOXIC BORDER POLLUTION SICKENS U.S. BORDER PATROL AGENTS

The pungent, salty air that emerged over South Bay communities last February was not a familiar whiff of wrack decomposing on our favorite beaches. In fact, it was the estimated 143 million gallons of raw sewage that raced down the rugged canyons of Tijuana, funneling directly through the mouth of the Tijuana River into the Pacific Ocean. Beachgoers, visitors, and residents of San Diego County have suffered the devastating effects of these spills for decades—yet little has been done to remedy the origins.

The perpetual disaster has direct, negative consequences on our local economy, tourism, marine life and growing public health concerns for residents of San Diego County. A problem that has remained dormant for many years has come into the spotlight in recent months due to the direct effect it is having on U.S. Border Patrol agents and, consequently, our national security.

No way to know when Hawaii eruption will end, scientists say

Lava from the Kilauea volcano that flowed into Kapoho Bay has created nearly a mile of new land. Officials with the U.S. Geological Survey said Thursday the flow is still very active, and there's no way to know when the eruption will end or if more lava-spewing vents will open.

The fast-moving lava poured into the low-laying coastal Hawaii neighborhoods in just two days this week, destroying hundreds of homes.

"Lava continues to enter the ocean along a broad front in Kapoho Bay and the Vacationland area and it continues to creep north of what remains of Kapoho Beach Lots," said USGS geologist Janet Babb.

As the lava marched toward the bay, it vaporized Hawaii's largest freshwater lake, which was hundreds of feet deep in some places. The new land in Kapoho Bay is now owned by the state, but the peninsula won't look like the farmland that dominates that region of the Big Island anytime soon.

Trump's Justice Department Affirms ObamaCare is Unconstitutional

In a letter to House Speaker Ryan, Attorney General Jeff Sessions affirmed that the Justice Dept will no longer defend the constitutionality of Obamacare.

Sessions writes that the DoJ believes the law's individual mandate - the provision the Supreme Court upheld in 2012 - has become unconstitutional.

Notably, the three-page letter begins by saying that Justice adopted its position "with the approval of the President of the United States."

Specifically, Sessions writes that the mandate cannot be interpreted as a tax “because it will raise no revenue as Congress has eliminated the monetary penalty,” the department said in a brief filed in the Federal District Court in Fort Worth.

A Mini Fusion Reactor Reached Temperatures Hotter Than The Sun

A private company in the United Kingdom says it has successfully tested its prototype nuclear fusion reactor at temperatures that are hotter than the Sun. The company hopes to use the nuclear fusion reactor to start supplying energy in 2030.

Over the past few years, there have been a number of nuclear fusion breakthroughs, with different teams sustaining hydrogen and helium plasmas for varying amounts of time. We’re still a way off useful nuclear fusion reactors, but it seems we’re taking steps in the right direction.

“We are taking significant steps towards achieving fusion energy, doing so with the agility of a private venture, driven by the goal of achieving something that will have huge benefits worldwide,” Jonathan Carling, the CEO of the company, said in an emailed statement.

In something of a compromise gesture, the justices gave Monsanto a three-month window to register the Bt seed varieties under the Plant Varieties Act (PVA), which would still allow the company to collect a trait fee but lose control of the plant's genetic material. The ruling would also allow Indian farmers to use Monsanto’s know-how for future research and development of the cotton industry.

Refusing to accept the new arrangement, Monsanto appealed the court’s decision, Reuters reported on Friday. NSL, meanwhile, announced that it will uphold the court's decision.

“In the Supreme Court, we'll maintain our stand that agricultural products, including seeds, cannot be patented in India,” said Narne Murali Krishna, a company secretary for NSL. “The judgment of the Delhi High Court has already vindicated our stand.”
