Super Malaria Bug Spreads Through Southeast Asia

First identified in Cambodia, a new malaria superbug which is spread by mosquitoes, is ravaging southeast Asia. The new form of malaria is also drug-resistant, making the first line of defense against it, null and void.

As of now, five countries in Southeast Asia have reported artemisinin-resistant malaria. (Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and Myanmar.) What is more concerning, however, is that along the border between Cambodia and Thailand, the parasite has become resistant to almost all treatments. This drug resistance is thought to be driven by a number of different factors, including patients not completing their course of drugs and inadequate treatment policies in certain regions, as well as the wide availability of the drug over the counter, including cheap substandard forms.

The NFL: Big Business With Big Tax Breaks

If You Build It ...

Besides the tax exemption, the NFL can also get a break through big stadium deals. Take, for example, the Dallas Cowboys.

In the late 1990s, the Dallas Cowboys and the team's owner, Jerry Jones, began plans to expand their stadium or build a new one. Jones shopped in and around Dallas for years, asking for public assistance to fund the stadium.

He found an audience in Arlington, a city just outside of Dallas. The price tag for the public was $325 million. (Jones was responsible for the balance of the money for the $1.2 billion stadium. Dallas News says Jones' contribution "was paid with commercial loans, league funding and proceeds from a ticket and parking tax.")

Paid Patriotism: Six Ways The NFL Is Directly Connected To The Government

There's a reason why football is called America's pastime. Americans —if they watch the sport or not— are unconsciously paying for it. Controversy brought on by NFL star Colin Kaepernick taking a knee during the National Anthem last season, and subsequently looking for employment this season, has put the organization founded in 1920 under a microscope.

Non-Profit Status.
Believe it or not, the NFL is non-profit. The IRS expanded Section 501(c)6 of the Internal Revenue Code, which "provides for the exemption of business leagues, chambers of commerce, real estate boards, boards of trade and professional football leagues, which are not organization." As noted by The Washington Post, this exception means the NFL’s headquarters in New York led by Goodell is spared tax payments that some estimate to be $10 million annually— because the teams and not the NFL make money.

What Happens If You Eat Saturated Fat?

At least since the middle of the 20th century, Americans have been warned not to eat saturated fat. The idea was that fats that are solid at room temperature, like butter or the fat found in meat like beef or lamb, would raise cholesterol and clog coronary arteries. More recent research reveals, however, that saturated fats are not all alike in their effects (Santaren et al, Journal of Lipid Research, online Sep. 19, 2017). In addition, other components of the diet as well as the microbes that reside in the intestines have an important impact on the effects of eating saturated fat (Li & Tang, Current Atherosclerosis Reports, Aug. 25, 2017). A diet containing saturated fat does not necessarily result in sky-high cholesterol, as one reader reports.

How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers

Taxpayers fund the stadiums, antitrust law doesn't apply to broadcast deals, the league enjoys nonprofit status, and Commissioner Roger Goodell makes $30 million a year. It's time to stop the public giveaways to America's richest sports league—and to the feudal lords who own its teams.
Last year was a busy one for public giveaways to the National Football League. In Virginia, Republican Governor Bob McDonnell, who styles himself as a budget-slashing conservative crusader, took $4 million from taxpayers’ pockets and handed the money to the Washington Redskins, for the team to upgrade a workout facility. Hoping to avoid scrutiny, McDonnell approved the gift while the state legislature was out of session. The Redskins’ owner, Dan Snyder, has a net worth estimated by Forbes at $1 billion. But even billionaires like to receive expensive gifts.
And on and on........

THE CDC’S STRANGE CASE OF POUL THORSEN, MD, PHD, VACCINE DATA MANIPULATOR “EXTRAORDINAIRE”

A few months ago after reading the book Master Manipulator, I wrote an article about Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, the Danish medical researcher who produced the ‘premiere safety study’ that vaccines do not cause Autism; however, the study was produced fraudulently, but the CDC still promotes it and has not retracted it from vaccinology research, as science protocol requires.

One of the questionable studies involved is “A population-based study of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccination and autism” co-authored by Poul Thorsen, See comment in PubMed Commons below N Engl J Med. 2002 Nov 7;347(19):1477-82. It’s the study CDC particularly likes to point to regarding vaccines and Autism, and is published online here. The research was about ethylmercury in Thimerosal attributing to and/or causing Autism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an age where science can increasingly be "bought", to enhance a pharmaceutical company's bottom line, please be very careful when your prescribing physician suggests a brand new, just out of the box treatment or vaccine for whatever ails you.

Because I have personally been a victim of a pharmaceutical company's "buying" the allegiance of my former physician by paying them for "recommending" certain prescriptions for my joint pain (which never really worked as advertised), at 68, I have absolutely no difficulty in asking a prescribing physician if they are getting compensated, in any way, for prescribing a medication for me.

Trust should never be an absolute; trust has to be earned.

Monsanto Caught Ghostwriting Stanford University Hoover Institution Fellow’s Published Work

Newly-released documents, dubbed the Monsanto Papers, give the public a behind the scenes look into how far Monsanto will go to control public perception, news media and scientific research into the key ingredient in its Roundup product, glyphosate.

The documents, which include internal emails and memos, reveals among other things, how Henry I. Miller, a Robert Wesson Fellow in Scientific Philosophy and Public Policy at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, allowed Monsanto to ghostwrite an editorial he published in Forbes.com and claimed as his own in 2015.

The 2015 editorial attacked the decision by the International Agency for Research on Cancer, a branch of the World Health Organization, to classify glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsanto, in the 21st century,has become the personification of utterly despicable corporate evil.

New Research Links Flint Water Crisis to ‘Horrifyingly Large’ Spike in Fetal Death Rates

Shedding new light on the human costs of the ongoing Flint water crisis—as well as underscoring the need for regulatory oversight—a new working paper links the city’s now infamous switch from the Detroit system to the Flint River as a water source with a decrease in fertility rates and a spike in fetal death rates.

The paper (pdf) from researchers from the University of Kansas and West Virginia University is the first to look at lead-poisoned water’s impact on fertility and birth outcomes. It compares birth and fetal death rates, which refers to miscarriages after 20 weeks of gestation, in Flint with those in other Michigan cities from 2008 to 2015—before and after the 2014 water switch.

Following the change in the water source, women in Flint aged 15-49 had a general fertility rate (GFR) decease of 12 percent. Fetal death rates for the group increased by 58 percent—a magnitude the researchers describe as “horrifyingly large.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single city, county, and state official who signed off on this switch in water resources, should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, tried, and convicted , and thrown into jail.

People should not be allowed to do this to any community in this country, period, end of discussion!!!!

Earth Is Flat as a Pita: The Israelis Who Push the Ultimate Conspiracy Theory

After acquiring surprising support worldwide, the ultimate conspiracy theory – that the Earth is flat and not round – has found a support group in Israel too. The Israeli community operates around their website, which started about a year ago. The website offers unequivocal proof of the huge deception that began with Galileo and Copernicus and ended with NASA and the manufacturers of globes. The managers of the site, who identify themselves by the assumed names Guy Mass and Richard Byrd, post translated videos, maps and various proofs that the Earth is flat and doesn’t revolve around the sun, and that the moon landing is a huge fraud. We’re alone on a huge and stable surface – the fact is that things don’t move in your room – as people believed in ancient times.

Kiwi scientists to make Star Trek gadget a reality

A handheld gadget used to scan for diseases in the sci-fi series Star Trek could soon become reality, with a new Kiwi study targeting our high rates of skin cancer.

In New Zealand, where skin cancer rates are four times that of the UK and US, one person dies from the disease each day on average.

While five-year survival rates for patients diagnosed early was around 98 per cent, this dropped sharply to just 16 per cent for advanced cases, making early diagnosis critical.

A group of researchers have now conceived a smarter, faster way to diagnose suspicious lesions.

The team of doctors and scientists will work together in the University of Auckland's Photon Factory and in clinics like Middlemore Hospital's See and Treat to create a new device, based on a combination of advanced photonics and sophisticated data analysis.

New “RNA interference” crop technology WEAPONIZES food into the ultimate eugenics weapon… could target Blacks for covert sterilization

A devastating new food weaponization technology has been developed called “RNA interference.” This technology, initially rolled out to destroy the fertility of pests, could easily be expanded into a genocidal food-based weapon that targets African-Americans to destroy their fertility. The same technology could also be fine-tuned to target Whites, Latinos, Asians or other races with various “biological payloads” that could include shutting off their fertility, neurological function or ability to build new blood vessels, eventually leading to death.

Vaccine Law removed liability just as "Vaccination" Surreptitiously Changed to "Genetic Engineering"

The World Health Organization, run by the Rockefellers, admits something big happened to vaccines.

DNA vaccines
"Vaccination consists of stimulating the immune system with an infectious agent, or components of an infectious agent, modified in such a manner that no harm or disease is caused, but ensuring that when the host is confronted with that infectious agent, the immune system can adequately neutralize it before it causes any ill effect. ....

"Recently, a radically new approach to vaccination has been developed ...."

That's DNA vaccines. That's vaccines that alter people's DNA. Or put more bluntly put, that is vaccines that genetically engineer people by altering their DNA.

The name - "vaccination" - remained the same, but the technology drastically changed, with no word to doctors or the public that the vaccines were now altering DNA

And DNA vaccines have never been approved for use in human beings.

A Crash Course in Preparedness: Week 2: Medicine, Sanitation, and Surviving Disaster Diseases, by Tess Pennington

This Crash Course To Preparedness guide is the second in a series of four. You can view Week 1 here: A Crash Course in Preparedness – Week 1 – The Survival Basics

Welcome back to week 2 in our Crash Course into Preparedness. Last week we discussed the basics of survival and gear needed for a short-lived event. One of the comments from last week’s class mentioned that it isn’t hard to prepare, you just have to start. I couldn’t agree more! My only addition I would make to this comment is in order to start you must prioritize your needs and know what you’re planning for. This week, we are taking the same concept from last week – prioritizing, planning and preparing to another facet of disaster planning and highlighting the more dirty side of preparedness – medical and sanitation needs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please read chapters one and two, and either forward, or print this out, for people you care about; a little bit of understanding of what you will need in an emergency, may, seriously, be the difference between life and death.

Florida Residents Warned They'll Be Ticketed For Hurricane-Damaged Homes

At a time when South Floridians rocked by Hurricane Irma were still surveying the damage to their properties, the county of Miami-Dade apparently thought it appropriate to begin handing out safety notices.

Celso Perez told local WSVN-TV that he, his family, and his neighbors were starting to clear fallen trees from the streets after the storm passed through at nine in the morning on Monday. Hours later, in the afternoon, Perez got a visit from the county.

“And we thought he was here to help us or offer some type of assistance with the trees, maybe he was going to bring us ice or something,” Perez told WSVN. Instead, the official slapped a safety notice on the only part of Perez’s fence still standing.

“I laughed,” he said. “I thought he was kidding. ‘You are kidding right? We just had a hurricane six hours ago.’ ‘No, I’m not kidding. I have to cite you for this.’ I just laughed. OK, whatever; knock yourself out!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From the department of "You can't make this sh*t up" in Miami-Dade Florida.

The Holovision Kickstarter “scam”

The concept imagery associated with the Kickstarter project presents this feasible technology in a way that (intentionally?) taps into people’s misconceptions about holograms (and I’m talking about the “real” kind of holograms, those involving lasers and mirrors and beam splitters). In other words, it might not be a scam per se, and it might even be unintentional, but it is definitely creating a false impression that might lead to very disappointed backers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am amazed at how many people love to use the word "hologram" without really knowing how holography works. It doesn't help that the name has been applied to 3D projection techniques that are not technically holographic. This is important because certain parties trying to muddy the issue of 9-11 have suggested that there were no planes, not only at the Pentagon, but at the World Trade Towers themselves, and that we were all seeing "holograms" of airplanes.

This is what comes from watching too much science fiction and thinking the visual effects represent something real!

The process of making a hologram in its simplest form involves taking a laser beam and splitting it into two beams. Both beams go through concave lenses to spread them out. One beam falls onto a high density photographic plate. This is the reference beam. The other laser beam is shone on the object to be captured in the hologram and that reflected light interacts with the reference beam at the photographic plate to form an interference pattern. That photographic plate is the hologram. After the holographic plate is developed, a light shone on the plate will be diffracted by the interference pattern to reconstruct the image of the object.

Here is the important part. To see the reconstructed image, you must be looking at or through the hologram plate; quite a trick to cover lower Manhattan, especially for an animated image!

If you shine a single point light on the plate, it will project the reconstructed image as seen from that one point, but it will not appear 3 dimensional, and it will appear exactly the same for everyone viewing it. That is, it will not behave like a 3 dimensional object as you move around.

For a projection to work, there must be something to project onto, and as this article confirms, the idea that holograms can project an image into empty air is simply science fiction.

Here is the important part. No holographic image, whether projected or looking at/through the holographic plate, can block the background. If there is light coming from the rear, it will be seen right through the holographic image, which is why holograms (like projected motion pictures) are best shown in darkened environments.

Looking at the numerous photos/videos of the 9-11 planes at the World Trade Towers, it is clear that ones does NOT see either sky nor buildings through the planes, hence they cannot be projections, holographic or otherwise.

How to Disappear an Activist (Or, Where IS Andy Ostrowski?)

By Janet Phelan

As reported here, activist attorney Andy Ostrowski was taken into custody by the Wilkes-Barre, PA police department on September 19, for a forced mental health evaluation. Ostrowski was reached later that afternoon at General Hospital in Wilkes-Barre, where he asserted he was being held as a political prisoner.

Will Opioid Lawsuits By County Officials Against Big Pharma Set Legal Precedent To Sue Vaccine Makers?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

“They know what they’ve been doing. They’ve been misrepresenting the dangers of these dangerous addictive drugs for years.” – State Rep. Gen DiGirolamo

“Those pharmaceutical companies have made billions of dollars off the deaths of our children and our loved one.” – Delaware County Councilman David White

Big Pharma companies have a significant presence in the suburban counties surrounding Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, being neighbors doesn’t matter, since Delaware County, the SE Pennsylvania county constituting some of Philadelphia’s western suburbs, filed a lawsuit on September 21, 2017 against eleven pharmaceutical companies regarding the overwhelming opioid epidemic and problem.

The reason for the lawsuit is the amount of money Delaware County had, and has, to pay for all types of services rendered and other expenses due to opioid drug abuses...

Active Volcano Mt. Rainer Shaken By 'Swarm' Of 23 Earthquakes

Don’t panic - it's only an active volcano. What’s the worst that could happen?

Some two dozen earthquakes have shaken Washington State’s Mt. Rainer over the past two weeks – but seismologists say people who live nearby shouldn’t panic.

“In the past, these swarms last a couple of days to a week or so and then die out,” said Paul Bodin, of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington.

Marijuana prevents people from doing ‘hard’ drugs, claims study

Cannabis might still be illegal in the UK, but new research has found that the leafy substance might not be the vilified "gateway drug" it’s widely thought to be.

In fact, in might be the key to discouraging users from progressing to "harder" drugs, such as cocaine and ecstasy, claim scientists at the University of New Mexico.

The five-year-long study involved 125 participants, all of whom were suffering from chronic pain.

83 were taking cannabis as a prescriptive pain mediator, whereas 42 chose to abstain.

They found that 34 per cent of the cannabis users stopped taking their medication, in comparison to just two per cent of the non-smokers, with 98 per cent continuing to take their prescribed drugs.

At 5 a.m. Friday, Hurricane Maria is about 35 miles ENE of Grand Turk Island. It remains a Category 3 hurricane.

At 8 a.m., Hurricane Maria is about 30 miles NNE of Grand Turk Island. Hurricane conditions are occurring on the Turks and Caicos Islands this morning.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 160miles. This would keep Maria far east of Florida. Maria is expected to slow down and gradually weaken in the western Atlantic Ocean early next week due to shear and cooler waters.

Swells from Maria are expected to begin reaching the coast of the southeastern United States today. These swells will cause dangerous surf and life-threatening rip currents along the east coast for the next several days even though Maria is forecast to remain well offshore over the western Atlantic Ocean.

Iran in 'technical compliance' with nuclear deal: US secretary of state

The head of the US Strategic Command agrees.

www.talkmedianews.com/pentagon-news-as-it-break-from-the-pentagon/2017...

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has admitted that Tehran is in "technical compliance" with the 2015 nuclear agreement reached between Iran and six other countries, including the United States.

Tillerson made the remarks on Wednesday after he and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif met as parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) at an EU-organized event on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York where EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said that all parties to the nuclear deal agree that Iran is in compliance with the plan.

Venezuela’s Rebellion against the Petrodollar

Washington’s decision to tie a noose round the neck of Venezuela’s economy (presented as sanctions for notional crimes) is effectively preventing Caracas from allowing its oil to flow to allies of the U.S.A.. The knock on effect: from now on, Venezuela will export its oil to China. By doing so, Venezuela’s contracts will no longer be established in dollars but the yuan. This will soon threaten the supremacy of the US currency and, clearly, the US economy. So now, “the party that thought it had the key to the prison door, is held hostage in the cell”.

Trump Alone Threatened War in His UN Address

The UN is a venue for promoting world peace and stability. Trump used his General Assembly address for hostile chest-thumping, threatening North Korea, Iran, Venezuela and Syria’s Bashar al-Assad – a disgraceful jingoistic display.

The only language he understands is belligerence, escalating wars he inherited from Bush/Cheney and Obama, plotting new ones, threatening possible nuclear confrontation on the Korean peninsula.

He’s a national disgrace and a world menace, a rogue leader. Addresses by his counterparts and other officials representing their countries shamed him.

WHY ARE SO MANY JEWISH PARENTS OPTING NOT TO VACCINATE THEIR KIDS FOR HPV?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends this vaccine for all 11- and 12-year-old girls. Starting in 2010, the CDC began recommending it for all 11- and 12-year-old boys, too. Why? Because the vaccine protects against two particularly virulent strains of HPV: serotypes 16 and 18, the ones that cause most kinds of cervical cancer. Type 16 also causes half the cases of oropharyngeal cancer (cancer of the mid-throat, palate, tongue, and tonsils). And a recent study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology found that by 2020, HPV is actually likely to cause more oropharyngeal cancers than cervical cancers in the United States.

Future plastics could be made out of sugar and carbon dioxide, making them harmless to the environment

The new polycarbonate — made from sugar and carbon dioxide — will be made using a process that utilizes low pressure dynamics and room temperature so that the material can be made cheaper and safer. What’s great about this biodegradable plastic is it can be returned to nature with the help of enzymes from soil bacteria. That means, plastic made from this polycarbonate won’t sit in dumps or float in the ocean or get ingested by whales and other sea creatures.

Antimicrobial chemicals in soap products found to permanently harm developing babies in utero

Triclocarban (TCC), the most common antibacterial chemical compound found in various personal care products such as soaps and lotions, can inadvertently be transferred from mother to child, inducing irreversible damage to the developing fetus. TCC was also noted to interfere with the lipid metabolism in the baby, which could potentially lead to growth abnormalities. While TCC was officially banned by the FDA last year due to “[a lack of evidence that] demonstrates that [triclocarban is] safe for long-term daily use,” many personal care manufacturers still use the ingredient.

SCIENCE FOR SALE: SHOCKING EMAILS REVEAL EDITOR OF FOOD SCIENCE JOURNAL WAS ON MONSANTO’S PAYROLL AT $400 PER HOUR

(Natural News) Recently released court documents reveal what many people have long suspected: Monsanto had a hand in the retraction of a groundbreaking study that left little doubt about the dangers of glyphosate in a prominent food science journal.

Monsanto will do anything to protect the reputation of Roundup and its other herbicide products – which earned them $1.9 billion in gross profits in 2015 alone – and that includes silencing their detractors.

It has now emerged that the Editor in Chief of the journal Food and Chemical Toxicology who oversaw the famous study’s retraction was on Monsanto’s payroll. This is a conflict of interest at best, and possibly something far more underhanded, and they might have gotten away with it had their lawyers succeeded in preventing their internal documents from being released in a class action lawsuit filed against the firm by cancer patients.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Seralini sued, in order to reclaim his professional reputation, and won.

Scientists edit embryos' genes to study early human development

British scientists have used a genome editing tool known as CRISPR/Cas9 to knock out a gene in embryos just a few days old, testing the technique's ability to decipher key gene functions in early human development.

The researchers said their experiments, using a technology that is the subject of fierce international debate because of fears that it could be used to create babies to order, will deepen understanding of the biology of early human development.

CRISPR/Cas9 can enable scientists to find and modify or replace genetic defects. Many describe it as game-changing.

"One way to find out what a gene does in the developing embryo is to see what happens when it isn't working," said Kathy Niakan, a stem cell scientists who led the research at Britain's Francis Crick Institute.

"Now we have demonstrated an efficient way of doing this, we hope that other scientists will use it to find out the roles of other genes."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My primary concern about this technology is that it may well be used to prevent the birth of people who are "divergent" in their intelligence, and ask too many logical questions which world governments do not want answered, because it would unmask the basis for control of their populations.

Internal watchdog says EPA mismanaging toxic site cleanups

Cleanups at some U.S. hazardous waste sites have stopped or slowed down because the Environmental Protection Agency does not manage its Superfund staff effectively to match its workload, an internal government watchdog said Tuesday.

Such work is at a standstill or moving slowly on at least four Superfund sites where "human exposure is not under control," according to a report from the EPA's inspector general. That means contamination at the sites is unsafe for humans and there is a reasonable expectation that people may be exposed to it, the report said.

The report comes as EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt has said the cleanup up of more than 1,300 listed Superfund sites is a priority.

The End Is Nigh

Although the sabre rattling by US political leaders and retired generals is heard daily on the American news programmes, and the American people are clearly being indoctrinated to believe that war might be necessary, America has never been less ready for a war.

The US is a very different country from what it was in 1941. It does possess a sizable military; however, that military is no match for the combined forces of China and Russia. Moreover, the US is not the industrial giant it was in 1941. Its factories have largely closed and moved overseas. What remains is not sufficient for wartime production. The American people as a whole are heavily in debt and the government itself is broke.

By any standard, the actions being taken by the US are therefore reckless indeed. The end of the world is not nigh, but the end of the world as we know it most certainly is.

BOMBSHELL: Flu vaccines don’t work in the elderly, new science shows … U.S. media total blackout

A recent report by Public Health England (PHE), however, has revealed that though it seems to have been slightly more effective at preventing influenza among children than in previous years, last year’s flu shot was totally ineffective for the elderly.

Experts believe that the shot was ineffective because it did not protect against the most common circulating strain – the H3 strain. This is because the flu shot is essentially a game of chance each year; experts have to try to predict in advance which three strains of the virus will be in circulation in the coming winter. Even in a good year, their strike rate is only 50 percent.

Of course, instead of admitting the uselessness of the vaccine, health professionals are blaming the elderly themselves.

Conventional household cleaners can kill you with increased risk of fatal lung disease

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a life-threatening condition that results in obstructed airflow and difficulty breathing. There are two main illnesses associated with COPD: Chronic bronchitis, which affects more than 10 million Americans, and emphysema, which over 4.7 million Americans have been diagnosed with. While the most common cause of COPD is smoking and second-hand exposure to cigarette smoke, other causes include pollution, toxic fumes, exposure to certain types of dust, and long-term asthma.

Now, a study led by Dr. Orianne Dumas of the French National Institute of Health, has found that certain cleaning chemicals can also dramatically increase the risk of COPD, with bleach fumes, in particular, linked to a staggering 32 percent increase in risk.
