Tarred and feathered, lynched in the street and locked up in internment camps: The tragic plight of Germans in AMERICA during the First World War

A fascinating collection of photos have resurfaced showing the hardships faced by German-Americans at the brutal height of the First World War.

As Europe was ravaged by fighting, German immigrants in the US suffered harassment, internment, lynchings - and even the humiliation of being tarred and feathered.

Although a little-remembered part of history today, America was wracked by the fear and paranoia that swept from coast to coast during the Great War.

Microplastics on Beaches Now Recorded at Insane Levels

By Jason Erickson

More attention is finally being given to determining the ill effects that microplastics (microbeads) are having on human health and the environment...

While their findings varied, researchers found microplastics in EVERY sample taken from 23 locations in 13 European countries...

DNA feat could boost star forestry species

*What they don't say is that Scion is involved heavily in GE research growing GE pines.*

A world-first DNA feat by New Zealand scientists could boost the way we grow the star species of our plantation forests.

By completing a draft assembly of the radiata pine's genetic make-up, or genome, researchers at Crown research institute Scion have opened the door to a new era of precision forestry for the critically important species.

The genome assembly began in 2013 and was completed last month, using the Rotorua-based institute's newly acquired high-capacity computer server - the largest of its kind undertaking genomics work in New Zealand.

The official announcement on the completion of the genome assembly was made at the Forest Growers Research Conference in Christchurch this week.

Kiwi scientist helps tackle elusive 'Element 118'

A top Kiwi scientist has helped characterise an intriguing and relatively new chemical element, which had proven a headache to study.

First synthesised as a single atom in 2002 at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Russia, oganesson, or Og, is the only noble gas which doesn't naturally occur and must be synthesised in experiments.

Widely known as Element 118, Og is also one of only two elements to be named after a living scientist, nuclear physicist Yuri Oganessian.

However, studying one of the heaviest elements with the highest atomic number to ever be synthesised - 118 - has been no easy task.

Oganesson is radioactive and extremely unstable with a half-life of less than a millisecond, making it impossible to examine by chemical methods.

This meant computing its electronic structure is the next best thing, which was in itself a formidable task.

China’s 8½-ton space lab will soon crash to Earth. No one knows where it will hit.

Tiangong 1, which translates to “Heavenly Palace,” is China's first space laboratory, launched in September 2011, serving as a prototype for a permanent space station that it aims to eventually build and launch. But six years after it first went into orbit, the 8½-ton laboratory is soon expected to meet a fiery and uncontrolled end, hurtling down to Earth and crashing somewhere — anywhere — on the planet.

In September 2016, Chinese officials confirmed that they had lost control of the space lab and that it would crash into Earth sometime in the latter half of 2017. In May, China told the United Nations that the lab would reenter Earth between October and April 2018.

NMA PANEL SUGGESTS NO AMERICAN HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE EXPERIMENTAL VACCINATIONS AND CHILDREN MUST BE HELD DOWN BY POLICE WHILE INJECTED

The National Meningitis Association (NMA) convened in New York City this past May to “Advance Vaccine Impact” and spread their fake science propaganda through several industry shills and pharma “panel” mouthpieces, including their insidious leader and vaccine sales puppet Paul Offit. The gathering of shills was moderated by a huckster (Arthur Allen) from Politico, a fake news outfit known for being Nazi sympathizers and pushing their own brand of violence and journo-terrorism.

The ultimate goal of the panel gathering was to cast blame on “anti-vaxxers” for vaccine failures, and to cover up the plague of chemical violence that’s been perpetrated on Americans from the carcinogenic ingredients in vaccines – namely mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, MSG and live “attenuated” virus combinations.

“People are compelled much more by fear than reason” was the motto this year for the vax-terrorists at the NMA convention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you have skills and kids, leave this country right the hell now. Pretty soon, I think laws will be passed to compel not only children, but also adults, to have mandiatory vaccinations, whether these vaccines are harmless... or not.

The following articles might shed some light as to why Mike and I do not get vaccinated:

FRAUD, EXPLOITATION AND COLLUSION: AMERICA'S PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTRY

The rot within manifested by the pharmaceutical industry almost defies description.

The theme this week is The Rot Within.

America's Pharmaceutical industry takes pride of place in this week's theme of The Rot Within, as the industry has raised fraud, exploitation and collusion to systemic perfection.

What other industry can routinely kill hundreds of thousands of Americans and suffer no blowback? Only recently has the toll of needless deaths from the opioid pandemic finally roused a comatose corporate media and bought-and-paid-for, see-no-evil Congress to wonder if maybe there should be some limits placed on Big Pharma and its drug distributors.

Death toll in San Diego's hepatitis A outbreak rises to 19

The death total in San Diego’s ongoing hepatitis A outbreak reach 19 Tuesday, one more than last week, according to a newly-released health department update.

Case counts also increased from 490 to 507, according to the county Health and Human Services Agency. The increases are the latest mileposts in a public health emergency that has grown among the region’s homeless and drug-using residents every week since it was first detected in early March.

Pediatrician drops a bomb on idea that transgenderism is real — completely destroys it with truth

Chemical castration is what you’re doing when you put any biologically normal child on puberty blockers. It’s treating puberty like a disease, arresting a normal process which is critical to normal development and bad for kids.

Sterilization: not good for kids. Prepping them for what will likely result in a case in girls a double mastectomy at 16 — not how you treat depression or anxiety and I have plenty of experience treating teenagers with depression, anxiety, even suicidal depression. Indoctrinating pre-school kids with the lie that you can be trapped in the wrong body, again, that’s disrupting their normal reality testing and cognitive development. Those things are abusive.

Kansas Teacher Barred from Employment for Supporting BDS

Barring longtime math teacher Esther Koontz from renewing her teaching contract, solely for her political beliefs, is a flagrant First Amendment violation.

She righteously supports BDS activism, wanting Israel held accountable for its high crimes against Palestinians.

Kansas House Bill 2409 prohibits state contracts with individuals critical of Israel’s agenda. In NAACP v. Claiborne Hardware Co. (1982), the Supreme Court unanimously ruled for the plaintiff against state authorities, cracking down on boycotts of white businesses, saying authority over economic relations doesn’t limit or deny political speech.

Koontz is a member of the Mennonite Church USA. In July, it voted to divest from US companies, profiting from Israel’s illegal occupation.

She supports Palestinian rights. Her employment papers require a declaration in writing of no support for BDS. She declined and was denied the right to train

Schwab Family - CASA Worker Confirms Lies and Deception by Kansas

Kansas is one corrupt state and run by OZ NAZI's IMHO!

Audio from February 2017 provides shocking but not unexpected proof that the State of Kansas has targeted Raymond and Amellia Schwab. (Clips from the 90 minute audio are included - the entire audio is available on YouTube). The worker describes malfeasance by Kansas and the financial beneficiary of child stealing - a commercial entity known as KVC.

The Schwab children were taken by the Kansas Department of Children and Families three years ago while the children were with their maternal grandmother and the parents were moving the family to Colorado. Raymond Schwab, a veteran of the U.S. Navy who was then working for the Department of Veterans Affairs had been transferred from that agency’s Topeka facility to Colorado. Schwab, who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and was deemed 50% disabled by the government, had been recommended medical cannabis by a licensed Colorado physician.

Earth has a new 'traveling buddy' as researchers confirm mystery object circling the planet is an asteroid and not space junk

Scientists have confirmed the true identity of a mysterious object said to be Earth’s traveling buddy.

The object, called 2016 HO3, was first spotted last year appearing to circle Earth like a ‘quasi-satellite.’

While many suspected it to be an asteroid, some have suggested that it could instead be space junk tumbling around the sun – but now, new observations with one of the world’s largest telescopes reveal it truly is an asteroid.

Opioids killed more Americans in 2016 than in the entire 19-year Vietnam War, staggering new report shows - as experts warn we haven't seen the worst of it

Opioid drugs have killed more Americans than the 19-year Vietnam war, the AIDS crisis, car accidents, suicides and homicides, a new report shows.

The analysis by independent research group Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) lays bare the scale of the epidemic by analyzing the latest CDC figures.

It breaks down the death tolls of the most devastating events in US history in the last 50 years, to show why addiction is the most deadly issue the country has ever faced.

While the Vietnam war claimed 58,200 lives in 19 years and six months, opioids killed 64,070 Americans in 2016 alone.

AstraZeneca buy Acerta faked cancer drug data, company admits

Back in 2015, AstraZeneca bought a majority stake in blood cancer biotech Acerta for $4 billion. But over the weekend, it said that some early data for its drug acalabrutinib was falsified.

AZ invested in the biotech for its bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor acalabrutinib (ACP-196). That drug is in a number of early, mid- and late-stage clinical trials across several blood cancers, including CLL and mantle cell lymphoma. It works in a similar way to AbbVie and Johnson & Johnson’s Imbruvica.

But Acerta had to recently retract an abstract, published in medical journal Cancer Research two years back—and just months before the AstraZeneca cash injection—which showed the drug as being effective in treating solid tumours in mice.

Type 1 Diabetes doubles in Mississippi children, are vaccines to blame?

While much of mainstream medicine would be loath to admit it, there is actually evidence that suggests vaccines can contribute to the onset of type 1 diabetes, in addition to other health problems. As the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) reports, doctors first started noticing signs of trouble back in 1949. At that time, doctors reported that children who received the pertussis vaccine (now part of the DPT shot) had issues with maintaining normal blood glucose levels. According to NVIC, research conducted with mice confirmed that the pertussis vaccine could cause type 1 diabetes.

But it’s not just the pertussis vaccine, now is it?

Penguins die in 'catastrophic' Antarctic breeding season

All but two Adelie penguin chicks have starved to death in their east Antarctic colony, in a breeding season described as "catastrophic" by experts.

Lost temple of Ramses II is discovered in Giza: Incredible find sheds light on the ruler who fathered more children than ANY other pharaoh

The lost temple of Ramses II has been uncovered by archaeologists, shedding light one of Egypt's most revered leaders.

Among the 3,200-year-old ruins, researchers uncovered motifs devoted to ancient Egyptian sun gods - giving a unique insight into who he worshipped.

The temple, which was uncovered in the Abusir Necropolis in Giza, measures around 110 feet in width and 170 feet (34 by 52 metres) in length.

It is the latest colossal building revealed by archaeologists to have been constructed during Ramses II's illustrious 67-year reign.

COMPANIES DOUBLE-DIP BY PROVIDING TREATMENTS FOR DISEASES CAUSED BY THEIR PRODUCTS

Imagine being paid to be both part of the problem and part of the solution. It would be like having someone pay you to open a bottle of red wine and pour it all over their white carpet. Then they pay you to steam-clean it, too.
Seems silly, but that’s essentially what’s going on with many modern-day pharmaceutical companies. People are paying for products that are making them sick. Then, the same company that produced that product offers another product to treat the problems they caused. Pharmaceutical companies are double-dipping into consumers’ pockets by treating diseases brought about by their own products.

Johnson & Johnson

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only "cure" for this corporate "illness" is intense jail time for CEOs who sign off on these practices, coupled with a thorough revocation of whatever "golden parachute" deals they may have had regarding their quitting/termination from the companies which hired them.

If this happens enough, the practice of knowingly selling pharmaceutical products which harm people will stop.

Unfortunately, in lightof the fact that pharmaceutical companies are one of the biggest national campaign donors existing in this country, such a move may only happen...when pigs discover they are aerodynamic.

One of the most unlikely and neurotoxic practices in public health and consumer healthcare modalities is the use of mercury in amalgam dental restorations, aka “silver fillings.” The amount of mercury in dental amalgams is 50%!

Magic mushrooms may 'reset' the brains of depressed patients, study shows

The active ingredient in magic mushrooms, psilocybin, may have a 'reset' effect on the brain that helps patients overcome depression, scientists have shown.

Many of the study participants voluntarily described a sense of their brains 'rebooting' after just two psilocybin experiences.

The psychoactive substance temporarily disintegrates the 'default mode network' which is a highly-connected set of brain regions that are particularly active during introspection and when we are under stress.

After psilocybin experiences, researchers at Imperial College London found that these areas of the brain reintegrated, became more stable, and that most participants felt immediate and continued relief from their depression.

Flu Vaccines in Pregnancy and Childhood: What You Need to Know

By The World Mercury Project Team

You want to do everything right for your child, and would never knowingly allow someone to inject a neurotoxin into your infant. Before getting a flu shot, you need to know this: MERCURY is a NEUROTOXIN.

What You Need to Know

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns pregnant women and young children not to eat fish containing high levels of methylmercury. Yet the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends pregnant women and infants get influenza vaccines, many of which contain ethylmercury from the preservative thimerosal. Receiving them may result in mercury exposures exceeding the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommended maximum levels...

AMERICANS HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE OVERWEIGHT THEN THEY ARE NOW – NEW SURVEY FINDS 40% OF U.S. ADULTS ARE OBESE

Americans have never needed to lose weight more than they do right now. According to brand new numbers that were just released by the National Center For Health Statistics, nearly 40 percent of all U.S. adults are now officially obese. That is an all-time record. And as you will see below, more than 70 percent of us are officially overweight. Of course most of the population does not even understand what is being done to them. The elite that own our major food corporations know that eating heavily processed foods is a highway to heart disease, cancer, diabetes and other deadly diseases, but they keep pushing those foods on us anyway. The average American diet is extremely self-destructive, and it is time for a change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Michael has lost about 100 pounds over the last two years; I have lost about 40, from my heaviest weight. We both have cardiovascular issues in our respective families and knew we needed to slim down, if we wanted a chance for a healthier life as we got older. It's nice to know that I can fit into a Sam's Club size 10 jean comfortably, at 68!!

You have to let your grocery store or big box store manager understand tht you want unprocessed, fresh, organic food; otherwise, you will shop elsewhere where you can find it.

Some suppliers at the "big box store" have already received the message, and are providing more organic food; some still need to.

Even if you have to buy from a health food store, where the prices can be very high, that is a far better investment in your health than buying the crud available at most super markets.

Read the labels; knowledge is power.

And if you have any tendency toward headaches, avoid anything with monosodium glutamate (AKA hydrolized yeast protein) as though it were the plague. It is a known migrane trigger, and comes under a lot of different names, in order to "trick" consumers into buying the product, even if it triggers their headaches.

Corporations have no conscience; they are simply about profits, period, end of discussion.

Israeli defense experts warn against dropping Iran nuke deal

But the true picture is more complicated than what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu might portray: There is a strong sense among his own security establishment that there are few good alternatives, that the deal has benefited Israel, and that U.S. credibility could be squandered in the turbulent Middle East in ways that could harm Israel itself.

The Pneumonic Plague Killed 50 Million People in the Middle Ages and Now It’s Back

Very little sounds more unsettling than the risk of catching "the plague" but most of us think this is just something that was around during the Middle Ages because of poor hygiene. Unfortunately, that's incorrect, and to prove it, there is an epidemic of the pneumonic plague in Madagascar right now.

We all remember reading about The Black Death during history lessons in school. It was a horrific pandemic that nearly wiped out Europe, killing a disputed number of people that ranges between 50 million and 100 million.

It's bad and it's reminiscent of the Liberian Ebola outbreak in 2013, that alarmingly made its way to American soil.

Trump's New Executive Order Makes It Easier to Buy Insurance Outside of Obamacare

There is something clever, almost cunning, about Obamacare's policy scheme: It requires unequivocal political support from an administration in order to avoid accusations that the law is being undermined. It is a kind of joint political-policy trap, in which the only solution to the law's failings is to bail it out.

This is evident in the reaction to the executive order on health care President Trump signed today. Trump's order is light on specifics, but it is intended to facilitate the expansion of association health plans, which would let trade groups and small businesses band together to purchase health insurance like large employers. These plans would be exempt from some of Obamacare's rules.

Power Grid Failures: CA Wildfires Are Now A Serious Critical Catastrophic Event

The death toll continues to rise because of the California wildfires currently scorching across wine country. With 23 dead and hundreds missing, the fires are labeled as a “serious critical catastrophic event” complete with power grid failures.

The wind known as the Diablo is picking up again, the air is dry, there is no rain in sight and the killer wildfires that have scorched the wine country of Northern California remain almost completely uncontained. Officials warned Wednesday that some of the big fires could merge making them almost impossible to contain. While thousands have been told to evacuate or prepare to leave their homes, hundreds are missing and 23 are dead.

The little red pill being pushed on the elderly

The maker of a little red pill intended to treat a rare condition is raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year as it aggressively targets frail and elderly nursing home residents for whom the drug may be unnecessary or even unsafe,?a CNN investigation has found.

And much of the money is coming straight from the federal government.
The pill, called Nuedexta, is approved to treat a disorder marked by sudden and uncontrollable laughing or crying -- known as pseudobulbar affect, or PBA. This condition afflicts less than 1% of all Americans, based on a calculation using the drugmaker's own figures, and it is most commonly associated with people who have multiple sclerosis (MS) or ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the many reasons why drug companies are so financially successful, is that doctors are compensated for prescribing "off book" prescriptions by the pharmaceutical houses manufacturing theer drugs.

I know this from experience, because it actually happened to me.

At 68, if an MD starts talking about an "off book" prescription for something I am dealing with, meaning it has not been tested for specific issues for which they want me to take a drug, I have zero problem asking them: "Are you being compensated by the manufacturer of this drug to prescribe it"?!?

It is a VERY reasonable question to ask your MD; if they balk and hem and haw, they probably are being compensated by the drug manufacturer.

Paving the way to faster power: Scientists discover adding asphalt to lithium-ion batteries makes them charge up to 20 times faster

Lithium batteries that are made from asphalt have the capability of charging 10 to 20 times faster than commercial lithium-ion batteries, effectively charging a phone in just five minutes, a new study reveals. Researchers at Rice University in Houston, Texas are looking at replacing lithium-ion batteries with lithium-air and lithium metal batteries coupled with an unlikely ingredient – asphalt – to make batteries that charge faster and are less likely to short-circuit.

“The capacity of these batteries is enormous, but what is equally remarkable is that we can bring them from zero charge to full charge in five minutes, rather than the typical two hours or more needed with other batteries,” said Rice lab chemist James Tour.

FENTANYL MAKER DONATES BIG TO CAMPAIGN OPPOSING POT LEGALIZATION

An embattled pharmaceutical company that sells the powerful painkiller fentanyl has donated $500,000 toward defeating a ballot initiative that would make recreational use of marijuana legal under Arizona law.

It’s hard to imagine a more sinister donor than Insys Therapeutics Inc. in the eyes of pot legalization proponents, who long have claimed drug companies want to keep cannabis illegal to corner the market for drugs, some addictive and dangerous, that relieve pain and other symptoms.

Insys currently markets just one product, according to an August filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission: a sublingual fentanyl spray it calls Subsys.

Two former company employees pleaded not guilty last month to federal charges related to an alleged kickback scheme to get doctors to prescribe Subsys.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

this is a consistent pattern, courtesy of oipioid manufacturers, to keep healthier pain-reducing products not available from public consumption, while pushing their own products which are both gravely addictive, and potentially lethal.

A team of researchers at Pennsylvania State University tested the effects of grape seed extract and a polyphenol compound found in the fruit known as resveratrol. Working on the theory that nearly all cancerous tumors are fueled by cancer stem cells, they examined 52 mice who had colon cancer tumors. The animals were divided into three groups for the study, one of which was fed the combination of grape compounds. A second group was given an anti-inflammatory drug that can reduce tumors known as sulindac, while the third group stuck to a normal diet and served as the control.

In the group of mice who were fed the grape compound, the number of tumors fell by an impressive 50 percent. While a similar decrease was seen in the group taking sulindac, that group suffered gastrointestinal toxicity; those taking the grape compound did not.

The medical holocaust no one wants to expose

The Starfield study, “Is US health really the best in the world?”, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, came to the following conclusions:

Every year in the US there are:

* 12,000 deaths from unnecessary surgeries;

* 7,000 deaths from medication errors in hospitals;

* 20,000 deaths from other errors in hospitals;

* 80,000 deaths from infections acquired in hospitals;

* 106,000 deaths from FDA-approved correctly prescribed medicines.

The total of medically-caused deaths in the US every year is 225,000.

That’s 2.25 MILLION deaths per decade.

This makes the medical system the third leading cause of death in the US, behind heart disease and cancer.

Failed Beagle 2 lander is finally found on the Isidis region of Mars after being 'excruciatingly close' to succeeding 14 years ago

It made it all the way to Mars before cutting out just before Christmas Day in 2003.

Now, 14 years after its demise, scientists believe they have finally pinpointed the resting place of the Beagle 2 Mars lander.

Not only did the lander make it, but it successfully deployed at least three of its solar panels before communication cut out - getting 'excruciatingly close' to succeeding.

Major blow to GM lobby as it's revealed pest resistance to 'frankencrops' has increased five-fold

A major study into crops genetically modified to repel pests has found that insects are rapidly developing resistance.

They found that bugs had developed resistance that substantially reduced the efficacy of the GM crops in 16 cases as of 2016 - compared to just 3 cases in 2005.

It took just five years for the bugs to be able to shrug off the poisons produced by the GM crops in the 16 areas where bugs developed resistance.

House-sized asteroid will come 'damn close' to Earth this week as it skims past Earth at one-eighth the distance of the moon

An asteroid estimated to be up to 100 feet wide is set for a close shave with Earth this week, when it will soar past at a distance of just 27,000 miles above the surface – or, as some scientists have put it, 'damn close.'

The space rock, dubbed asteroid 2012 TC4, is about 30-100 feet (10-30 metres) in size, and will fly by at just one-eighth of the distance between Earth and the moon on October 12.

It first flitted past our planet in October 2012 at about double the distance of its next expected pass, before disappearing.

But, after tracking it down last month, scientists now assure it will make a safe pass.

Kids Playing Outdoors May Have Better Eyes

By Mae Chan

The ready availability of technology may make the children of today faster at configuring a new smartphone, but does all of that screen time affect the development of their eyes?

While conventional wisdom dictates that children should do less up-close viewing, sit farther from the television and perhaps even wear their eyeglasses less, we have found in recent studies that another factor may be at play: Kids need to go outside, and, if not play, at least get some general exposure to outdoor light...

VOLCANO WARNING: CANARY ISLANDS PANIC AS EARTHQUAKES HIT LA PALMA – 40 TREMORS IN 48 HOURS

a Palma was rocked by more than 40 seismic movements of low magnitude and intensity between 1.5 and 2.7 on the Richter scale, according to the data of the National Geographic Institute.

The biggest earthquake, recorded at around 1pm on Saturday, had a magnitude of 2.7 and took place in the area of the Natural Park Cumbre Vieja, 28 kilometres deep.

The second largest quake, of 2.6, took place at 1.23pm on Sunday in the same area, while the third quake erupted at midnight on Monday, reaching a magnitude of 2.1, according to the Volcanological Institute of the Canary Islands (Involcan).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While not on the Ring of Fire, this is of concern as the entire western-facing side of Cumbre Vieja is showing signs of slippage into the ocean. Were there to be a massive landslide triggered by quakes/eruption, the resulting mega-tsunami would wreck much of the east coast of the US.

The USDA Dietary Guidelines Committee Gets The Spanking It Deserves

Among other things, the report finds that the guidelines process for reviewing the scientific evidence falls short of meeting the “best practices for conducting systematic reviews,” and advises that “methodological approaches and scientific rigor for evaluating the scientific evidence” need to “be strengthened.”

In other words, the Dietary Guidelines for Americans are far from the “gold standard” of science and dietary advice they need to be. In fact, they may be doing little to improve our health at all.

Congress Should Investigate the Organic Scam

Consumers have been duped with fraudulently labeled foods.

lawmakers just introduced a bill that would nearly triple the budget for the USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP), the federal agency in charge of overseeing the U.S. organic market. But before we hand over more tax dollars to this feckless bureaucracy, Congress should demand hearings about NOP’s complicity in what might be the biggest consumer scam in decades: the sale of phony organic food.

Last month, the USDA’s inspector general released a shocking report detailing widespread fraud throughout the global organic-food supply chain and noting the failure of federal officials to ensure the integrity of the organic market in the U.S. The report is proof that millions of consumers have been — and are still being — duped, buying pricier “organic” products that do not meet federal organic standards>>>

Bali volcano: Earth set to become cooler after Mount Agung erupts

BALI’s largest volcano, Mount Agung, looks set to erupt any day now and the event will have a shocking impact on the world’s temperature.

Even though the enormous volcano is likely to spew out molten lava and vast amounts of ash and sulphur dioxide, the Earth is actually set to become a little bit cooler.

The gases and dust particles thrown into the atmosphere during the eruption will help cool the planet by shading incoming solar radiation - effectively providing a partial sun block.

WEBMASTER COMMENT: This is not accurate. It merely moves the absorption of sunlight from the ground to the haze.

Meanwhile, the sulphur dioxide reacts with the water vapour in the air to form droplets of sulphuric acid.

These droplets accumulate in the Earth’s stratosphere and form a haze, which acts as a barrier to UV rays and results in a cooling effect.

Opioid prescription drug deaths dwarf shooting deaths, yet there’s no call to ban Big Pharma

According to federal statistics, opioid prescription drugs killed 33,091 Americans in 2015 alone. Estimates put those numbers above 36,000 deaths for 2017.

The death toll at the Las Vegas Mandalay massacre was 59 (so far). Though a horrifying tragedy, opioid drugs alone are killing 560 times more people each year than died in the Vegas tragedy.

This means that opioid drugs alone are causing the near-equivalent of two Las Vegas massacres PER DAY in terms of the number killed.

Plague is Starting in Africa

Panic has ensued in Madagascar where a recent outbreak of the plague has claimed the lives of at least 24 people. Prime Minister Olivier Mahafaly Solonandrasana has announced a ban on all public gatherings and demonstrations in effect until the outbreak can be contained.
The plague is a deadly disease caused by the Yersinia pestis bacteria. It usually begins as the bubonic plague, which is spread from small mammals (such as rats) and fleas to humans. If detected early, the bubonic plague can generally be treated and controlled with antibiotics and proper environmental measures. However, half of all reported cases in Madagascar are the pneumonic plague –- the deadliest form of the disease.

The pneumonic plague is transmitted person to person. Since this form of the plague is airborne, it spreads extremely rapidly and can have catastrophic consequences. Those who contract the pneumonic plague must be treated immediately as it can be fatal within less than 24 hours of onset.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you have been to, or from, Madagascar recently, please go to your local health provider and get tested, and possibly pre-emptively treated.

If you have even been thinking about going to Madagascar for any reason, please don't, until this has been irradicated.

California Hepatitis A Outbreak on Verge of Statewide Epidemic

California health officials have reported that at least 569 people have been infected with the hepatitis A liver disease and 17 have died since a San Diego County outbreak was first identified in November. Cases have migrated north to homeless populations in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and Sacramento over the last 11 months.

Although local and state authorities have tried to underplay the risks and severity of the outbreak, the most recent annual totals for cases of hepatitis A in the United States was 1,390 in 2015, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). California only reported 179 cases during the same year.

The FBI’s Hunt for Two Missing Piglets Reveals the Federal Cover-Up of Barbaric Factory Farms

This article includes graphic images some readers may find disturbing.

FBI AGENTS ARE devoting substantial resources to a multistate hunt for two baby piglets that the bureau believes are named Lucy and Ethel. The two piglets were removed over the summer from the Circle Four Farm in Utah by animal rights activists who had entered the Smithfield Foods-owned factory farm to film the brutal, torturous conditions in which the pigs are bred in order to be slaughtered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We need to have a national conversation about the humane raising of animals we eat, and even some big box outlets are getting the message that inhumane raising of food animals is not what consumers want.

Remember Sinclair Lewis' masterwork "The Jungle", about the horrific state of a meat packing plant, which spurred Congress to create some legislation regarding standards?!?

We seem to be right back to square one, with these horrific conditions witnessed at Springfield.

Massive increase in antimicrobials use in animals to lead to widespread drug resistance in humans
Published 9 October 2017Share|
The amount of antimicrobials given to animals destined for human consumption is expected to rise by a staggering 52 percent and reach 200,000 tons by 2030 unless policies are implemented to limit their use, according to new research. represent an alarming revision from already pessimistic estimates made in 2010, pushed up mostly by recent reports of high antimicrobial use in animals in China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At least for the moment, the answers are simple for an educated consumerm who understands the risks here.

Demand from the managers of the stores where you shop that there should be a selection of non-gmo/non-antibiotic treated meat to choose from; otherwise, you will shop elsewhere.

Hidden 'megathrust' fault could hammer New Zealand with 8.4 quake

An 8.4 magnitude quake off the East Coast of New Zealand could release 2000 times more energy than the 2011 Christchurch earthquake, experts say.

It could cause a "megathrust" earthquake, and the dangers it poses are being discussed at a summit in Napier this week – with local councils, iwi and civil defence involved.

The potential risk comes from the Hikurangi subduction zone, a massive fault line running from Marlborough and right past the East Coast where the Pacific and Australian tectonic plates collide.

Bill on Guardianship Abuse Goes to Trump—But What Does it Actually Fix?

By Janet Phelan

Senate Bill 178, The Robert Matava Elder Abuse Prosecution Act of 2017, has passed both the Senate and House and has gone to the President for signing into law. The Bill contains provisions on multiple issues involving abuse of older people, including telemarketing scams and elders incarcerated in foreign countries.

The Bill also takes a stab at addressing guardianship abuse, which has now become rampant in the US. This sort of elder abuse, however, involves multiple levels of government officials, including judges, officers of the court, non-responsive APS and police agencies, as well as already documented complicity by the very Department of Justice which is now mandated with investigating these crimes...

REVEALED: U.S. TESTED CARCINOGENIC CHEMICALS ON UNKNOWING CANADIAN CIVILIANS DURING THE COLD WAR

The U.S. Army secretly tested carcinogenic chemicals on unknowing residents of Canada in Winnipeg and Alberta during the Cold War in testing linked to weaponry involving radioactive ingredients meant to attack the Soviet Union, according to classified documents revealed in a new book Behind the Fog: How the U.S. Cold War Radiological Weapons Program Exposed Innocent Americans by Lisa Martino-Taylor, an associate professor of sociology at St. Louis Community College.

The incidents occurred between July 9, 1953 and Aug 1, 1953 when they sprayed six kilograms of zinc cadmium sulfide onto unsuspecting citizens of Winnipeg from U.S. Army planes. The Army then returned 11 years later in 1964 and repeated the experiments in other parts of Canada including Suffield, Alta. and Medicine Hat, Alta., according to Martino-Taylor, National Post reported.

Synthetic biology “breakthrough” could allow your body’s cells to be hacked with BIO-MALWARE that takes over cellular function

It seems like with every modern scientific “breakthrough” we become more vulnerable as a species. The latest such leap for mankind was announced recently in the journal Nucleic Acids Research, and involves programming cells to fight diseases like cancer and the flu. The research team, led by Professor Alfonso Jaramillo of the University of Warwick, claims that this new technology can also be harnessed to reverse agricultural issues, while strengthening plants against pest issues and making them more resilient in general.

While this all sounds good on the surface, all genetic engineering carries an element of risk, and this particular type of meddling could make us vulnerable to being hacked with bio-malware that could take control of all the cellular functioning of our bodies.
