Judge Rules Non-Profits Can Sue Monsanto for Misleading Safety Labeling of Popular Herbicide Roundup

Beyond Pesticides and The Organic Consumers Association (OCA) today responded to a federal judge’s ruling against Monsanto Co.’s motion to dismiss the groups’ lawsuit, filed in April, 2017. The lawsuit challenged Monsanto’s safety claim on its Roundup (glyphosate) products as misleading and fraudulent. Monsanto displays a claim on its Roundup product label that states that the chemicals in the product “targets an enzyme bound in plants but not in people or pets,” when, in fact, the chemical adversely affects beneficial bacteria essential to the gut biome and normal body functions.

BMW recalls 300,000 cars that risk stalling completely

BMW is extending a UK recall of its cars after the BBC's Watchdog found that vehicles could cut out completely while they are being driven.

It is recalling 312,000 vehicles: the BMW 1 Series, the 3 Series, the Z4 and its X1 petrol and diesel models made between March 2007 and August 2011.

BMW initially recalled 36,410 petrol cars last year over safety issues.

It said it now recognised there may have been similar problems in cars not covered by the first recall.

TICKETMASTER ENTERS THE FACE RECOGNITION BIZ, BUT CUSTOMERS SHOULD BEWARE

Ticketmaster’s parent company, Live Nation, has invested in a facial recognition firm with ties to the Department of Defense. According to Live Nation’s first quarter financial report, the firm, Blink Identity, uses “cutting-edge facial recognition technology, enabling you to associate your digital ticket with your image, then just walk into the show.” Ticketmaster seems to hope that music lovers will appreciate the supposed convenience of using their faces to enter shows, instead of tickets.

Apple confirms there is a serious camera flaw with its 'luxury' £999 iPhone X that prevents Face ID from working properly

Some users have since found that the feature has been malfunctioning and it has emerged that a fault in the device's rear camera is responsible.

Apple is now offering replacement handsets to customers if the fault can't be fixed by a technician from the firm.

The US tech firm is now actively trying to rectify the issue, according to MacRumours who broke the news.

A leaked internal document obtained by the site revealed Tim Cook's company is authorising stores to replace entire handsets if the FaceID feature isn't working and can not be fixed.

POLICE CCTV CAMERAS TURN CITIZENS INTO STAY-AT-HOME SPIES, SPYING ON THEIR NEIGHBORS 24-7

Leave it to the great American police state to turn Reality TV into real-time spying of its citizens.

Recently the Newark, New Jersey Police Department decided it needed to do more, much more to build trust between the police and the community.

Here’s a little background on police building trust in the community.

Last year, the Newark Police Department received an award from the New Jersey Attorney General for Outstanding Community Policing for its innovative approach to fostering relationships of collaboration and trust between police and the community.

How did the Newark Police foster trust between the police and community you ask?

By creating a new community program called CommUNITY & COPS.

The CommUNITY & COPS program is a PR program that uses clergy to convince the public that police are your friends.

“I Was Directed to Market OxyContin”: A Purdue Pharma Rep Tells How He Was Paid to Push Opioids

When Sean Thatcher was a sales rep at Purdue Pharma, which makes OxyContin, doctors he visited often complained that their patients were developing tolerance to the opioid painkiller. Thatcher, who worked for the company between 2009 and 2015 in Montana, was instructed to tell the prescribers to increase the dose, and to clarify that addiction isn’t the same as tolerance, or “pseudoaddiction.” He received a bonus based on the number of opioid prescriptions written by the physicians he visited, with higher sales of OxyContin in particular garnering bigger bonuses.

New Study Unearths Paradox: Opioids Cause Chronic Pain

We all know that surgery is often painful, but a new study will have you thinking twice before you fill that pain-pill prescription. As this new science reveals, even a few days of opiates can set you up for a longer, more painful recovery

A just-released study has called into question the feasibility of using opioids to manage post-surgical pain. Rats given repeated doses of morphine experienced inflammation and pain for three weeks longer than non-medicated test subjects.

On April 16, 2018, researchers from the University of Colorado at Boulder released an animal study[1] examining the effect of opioids on pain, post-surgery. In the study, an exploratory abdominal surgery was conducted on male rats called a laparotomy. Laparotomies are routine surgical procedures in the United States, often conducted when pelvic disorders are suspected, and one for which opioids are the standard post-surgical pain management prescription.

When you bite into that juicy ground beef burger, you might find a little something extra in it - like chunks of blue plastic.

Yes, it's time to check your food again during this never-ending cycle of recalls.

DEEP FAKES VERSUS DEEP STATE: WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU CAN’T TELL WHAT’S REAL

The arms race has started: deep fakes versus tech that exposes them. The only problem is that the technology that will supposedly tell us what is real and what is not… was created by DARPA. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is the government agency responsible for the developing things like killer robots, artificial intelligence, swarms of tiny drones, and even experiments with mind reading technology. And those are just the projects we know about.

Missouri House passes bill to prevent plant-based meat companies from using the word “meat”

In Missouri, plant-based proteins designed to look and feel like meat may no longer be allowed to use the term “meat” on their packaging, according to an omnibus agriculture bill which passed in the state’s House of Representatives yesterday.

The unprecedented piece of legislation would specifically prohibit the use of the term “meat” on products that don’t come from animals. And, to be clear, the prohibition applies not just to plant-based products. Other forms of alt-protein, including so-called “clean” meat cultured from animal cells, would also be barred from using the term. According to the bill, meat is only “meat” if it comes from traditionally raised livestock—that is, from live animals specifically farmed for their flesh.

House Rep. Jeff Knight, a former livestock auctioneer who sponsored a standalone bill identical to the meat-labeling provision in the omnibus bill, intends the new legislation to safeguard the state’s ranchers economically.

Stunning finding reveals autism is highest in areas with the highest vaccination rates

The surge of autism diagnoses in recent years has left many people looking for an explanation. Oft-labeled a “conspiracy theory,” or something to that effect, the suspicion that vaccines are a potential cause of autism is on the rise. New research from the Canadian government has indirectly shown that in highly vaccinated populations, autism rates are noticeably higher. These shocking findings are sure to leave vaccine propagandists reeling while they try to somehow discredit the findings of a government agency.

As The World Mercury Project reports, Canada ranks in the “top 10” countries for autism rates. In 2018, it was revealed that 1 in 66 Canadian children were on the autism spectrum, based on data collected in 2015.

The Public Health Agency of Canada even crafted the “National ASD Surveillance System,” or NASS, to track the number of people diagnosed with autism. The system was intended to provide a look at autism diagnoses “both across regions and over time.”

Court ruling confirms Gardasil vaccine kills people… scientific evidence beyond any doubt… so where is the outcry?

May God bless the Tarsell family, who fought the U.S. government eight long years to validate a medical burden of proof that the Gardasil vaccine killed their daughter. The Tarsell’s 21-year-old daughter Christina Richelle “died from an arrhythmia induced by an autoimmune response” to Gardasil, an HPV vaccine that she received only days before her death.

The final ruling has been confirmed by the Department of Health and Human Services: Merck’s Gardasil vaccine causes autoimmune problems that cause sudden debilitation and/or death. If the young girl had been gunned down by a madman with an AR-15, then there’d be national headlines and a march on Washington. Since this young woman was “shot” to death by a vaccine, the whole story gets swept under the rug.

Flint water whistleblower wins the Goldman Environmental Prize

LeeAnne Walters was a stay-at-home mother of four living in Flint, Michigan, when she and her children began noticing troubling health problems in the spring of 2014. Her 3-year-old twins kept breaking out in strange, burning rashes after their bath, and she and her daughters started losing clumps of hair in the shower. Her 14-year-old son was hospitalized several times for severe abdominal pains. At one point, Walters’ eyelashes fell out.

The family was baffled and alarmed, but they couldn’t find a logical cause. It was only months later, after the water from her kitchen sink started running brown, that Walters began to make the frightening connection.

Most of us have heard about Flint, Michigan’s lead-contaminated water debacle. But few know that it was Walters, working relentlessly behind the scenes, who finally exposed the problem and galvanized her community to fight for clean water.

Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: 'Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'

Goldman Sachs analysts attempted to address a touchy subject for biotech companies, especially those involved in the pioneering "gene therapy" treatment: cures could be bad for business in the long run.

"Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled "The Genome Revolution."

"The potential to deliver 'one shot cures' is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies," analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. "While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow."

Gold Leaving US Vaults: Signs of Upcoming Currency War and Armed Conflict

An armed conflict with Iran might be much closer than generally believed. The nuclear deal has been honored, to everyone’s satisfaction but to Washington’s chagrin. Iran undoubtedly has no military capability that would be a threat to the US. It has never been responsible for any terrorist acts committed abroad or things like that. But it has done something unforgivable in the eyes of the US. It has threatened the USD. That’s what Washington cannot accept, because if it does not support the dollar, there will be problems financing the US government’s huge federal debt. A war with Iran would eliminate the largest non-USD oil exporter. One thing leads to another. The gold repatriations are a precursor to a currency war and armed conflict. That’s what drives US foreign policy.

It’s “open season” on vaccinating pregnant women with toxic, harmful substances confirmed present in many vaccines

Everybody knows that when you’re pregnant you don’t drink coffee, smoke cigarettes or take pain medications, right? And no matter how tempting that glass of wine might look, as a conscientious mom-to-be you wouldn’t think of drinking alcohol during pregnancy. For a mother, the responsibilities of parenting start from the second she finds out she’s pregnant, and most moms take that responsibility very seriously, doing all they can to protect their babies.

Why is it, then, that mothers who are admonished not to take anything stronger than Paracetamol during pregnancy are also advised to get toxic vaccines? The Centers for Disease Control has long recommended that pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu, for example, and yet one of their own studies recently confirmed an alarming link between spontaneous miscarriages and the influenza vaccine.

Will the iPhone X be Apple’s downfall? Mobile manufacturers’ slowing sales are a ‘bad omen’ for the firm as high-end handsets fail to attract customers

Signs that the iPhone X has been poorly received by consumers continue to pour in, as analysts warn slowing sales for its manufacturers are a bad omen.

Apple's five largest assemblers for the high-end smartphone have reported a sharp downturn in revenue in the first quarter of 2018.

This suggests that demand for the 10th anniversary handset has petered out just one financial quarter after its release.

APPLE SUED AN INDEPENDENT NORWEGIAN REPAIR SHOP IN BID TO MONOPOLIZE REPAIR -- AND LOST

Apple's efforts in particular to monopolize repair run deep. The company has worked alongside the Department of Homeland Security and ICE to seize counterfeit parts in the United States and raid shops of independent iPhone repair professionals. FOIA efforts to obtain details on just how deeply rooted Apple is in ICE's "Operation Chain Reaction" have been rejected. The efforts to "combat counterfeit goods" often obscures what this is really about for Apple: protecting a lucrative repair monopoly and thwarting anybody that might dare repair Apple devices for less money.

And Apple's efforts on this front are a decidedly global affair. More recently, Apple has been harassing an independent repair shop owner in Norway named Henrik Huseby. After Norway customs officials seized a shipment of 63 iPhone 6 and 6S replacement screens on their way to Huseby's repair shop, Apple threatened to sue the store owner unless they agreed to stop using aftermarket screens and pay a hefty settlement:

Quitting a Bad Habit: Germany to Massively Restrict Monsanto Weedkiller

On Tuesday, German Agriculture Minister Julia Kloeckner announced that legislation is being drafted to end the use of glyphosate in the country’s home gardens, parks and sports facilities.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in agricultural giant Monsanto's Roundup product, is used to kill weeds. In Germany, an estimated 40 percent of all crop-growing land is treated with the toxic chemical.

The German minister is also planning on establishing additional restrictions for the use of glyphosate in agriculture, except in areas that easily erode and cannot be exposed to heavy machinery.

iPhone X is dead as consumers turn their backs on pricey smartphones – analyst

Apple is likely to stop producing iPhone X smartphones, according to Mirabaud analyst Neil Campling. The oversupply of chips and high prices are the reason, he says.

...

The record inventories at TSMC show that Apple will not be producing more iPhone X models next year, the analyst said. "With the declines in iPhone X orders and the inventory issue at TSMC at record highs, which basically reflect a need to burn off inventory. Why? Because the iPhone X is dead," Campling wrote, as quoted by the media.

"The simple problem with X is that it is too expensive. Consumers are turning their backs on high-priced smartphones," he said. The device typically costs $999.

So people who have managed to already break their iPhone 8 screen and went the cheaper route of getting it fixed by a non verified Apple repair shop are now at risk of having a useless phone.

Mass Shootings May Be Linked To Psychotropic Drug Use

Zoloft, Lexapro and Prozac have all become household names, generating billions of dollars each year for the pharmaceutical companies that produce them. But why will no one talk about the effect they are they having on the nation’s psychology?

“Why does it always seem that the shooter in these type of mass killings has been on some sort of psychotropic drugs?” asks former Texas Congressman Ron Paul. “Why is it no one is questioning these medications? All of which come with labels warning of horrific side effects. Perhaps one reason they are ignored is that the pharmaceutical industry spends billions each year lobbying congress.”

Mania, suicidal thoughts and dangerous impulses are all common side effects of these medications. With one in six Americans taking these mind-altering drugs, the link between medication and the rise of abhorrent behavior in our nation has yet to be properly investigated.

'Do NOT eat romaine lettuce,' CDC warns - as an expert explains why the fields where the leaf is grown in winter could be contaminated with E. coli for YEARS

This month alone, 53 Americans have been sickened by E. coli linked to romaine lettuce, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

The agency issued a foreboding warning to anyone who had purchased any romaine, or lettuce that might be romaine if it could have been grown in Western Arizona: 'throw it away.'

This outbreak is particularly dangerous because it involves a strain of the bacteria that produces the potentially deadly Shiga toxin.

A food product safety expert told Daily Mail Online that the romaine contamination is to be taken seriously - and the ground where 90 percent of winter lettuce grows could be toxic for years.
