Lax Rules Let Flint’s Poisoned Water Drip Through the Cracks

In Flint, the utility did in fact collect tap water samples and conduct tests in a process reviewed and approved by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ). But the city’s water did not officially exceed the LCR’s action level, even though many residents were exposed to dangerous amounts of lead through their tap water. There are several reasons for this apparent contradiction. One is that the MDEQ appears to have thrown out samples for which tests revealed high lead levels that would have triggered the “lead action level.” This sort of data manipulation undercuts the public health goals of the LCR and puts people at risk.

Red meat linked to higher colon cancer risk

Having a diet free from red meat can help women reduce the risk of a type of colon cancer, suggests new research.

"The impact of different types of red meat and dietary patterns on cancer locations is one of the biggest challenges in the study of diet and colorectal cancer," said lead author of the study Diego Rada Fernandez de Jauregui from the University of Leeds in Britain.

How Our Country Was Stolen

Today is Easter, an important Christian holiday. But it is not marked on the calendar that is part of the Apple software that came with my Apple computer lap top. Today is also April Fools day, and that is marked on the Apple-supplied calendar. For Apple’s programmers, April Fools Day trumps Easter.

How can it be that an American company, Apple, can remember to mark on the calendar Cinco de Mayo (May 5), Mexico’s commemoration of a Mexican army victory of the French in the Battle of Puebla in 1862, but not Easter?

A country without a unifying moral culture is no longer a country. Yet, what pretends to be a country, the US, is being led into war against Russia, a real country. There is no chance whatsoever of the US prevailing in the oncoming war.

Webmaster addition: The date for Easter "floats" around and varies for different churches.

Tiangong-1 space station reentry

Only from one day before the actual reentry will it become possible to roughly predict which ground tracks, and hence which regions on Earth, might witness the reentry. However even then, an impact location prediction on the order kilometres is, for an uncontrolled reentry, beyond current technical capabilities due to complexities of modelling the atmosphere, the dynamics of the reentering object and limitations in observing the spacecraft.

In general, the uncertainty associated with an uncontrolled reentry prediction is on the order of 20% of the remaining orbital lifetime. Practically, this means that even 7 hours before the actual reentry, the uncertainty on the break-up location is a full orbital revolution – meaning plus or minus thousands of kilometers.

Gene Banks And Exiled Syrian Seeds – How One Scientist Plans To Save Humanity

An Aleppo-based research project known as the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) counts itself among the victims of the seven-year-long Syrian Civil War. Its precious cargo, a vast collection of crop seeds, is among the exiled refugees who have fled the conflict.

Ali Shehadeh is a Syrian scientist whose job at a seed bank in Terbol, Lebanon, is essentially to save humankind from a potential mass extinction event caused by global warming or war by storing the genetic material needed to reproduce vital crops such as wheat, barley and rice.

He is among the few who are prescient enough to prepare centuries in advance for the point where it becomes impossible to grow everyday produce.

Patriot Missiles Are Made in America and Fail Everywhere

I talked to a fellow who worked at White Sands years ago about the Patriot. He called it the best 1950's tech that money could buy!

The point is there is no evidence that Saudi Arabia has intercepted any Houthi missiles during the Yemen conflict. And that raises a disquieting thought: Is there any reason to think the Patriot system even works?

Shocking images of VW cars dumped in Californian desert by German manufacturer after it was forced to buy back 350,000 cars for $7billion over diesel scandal

Shocking images have emerged showing lines of cars stretching out as far as the eye can see in the Californian desert after Volkswagen was forced to buy back 350,000 cars for $7.4billion over the diesel scandal.

The German automaker has been forced to get creative when it comes to responsibly storing the hundreds of thousands of vehicles they had to buy back.

Storage lots include a shuttered suburban Detroit football stadium, a former Minnesota paper mill and the desert site near Victorville, California.

Lockheed Martin Receives Patent For ‘World Changing’ Fusion Reactor

Lockheed Martin has reportedly been working on a revolutionary new type of reactor that can power anything from cities to aircraft carriers.

The Maryland-based defense contractor recently received a patent for the compact fusion reactor (CFR) after filing plans for the device in 2014. According to reports, one generator would be as small as a shipping container but produce the energy to power 80,000 homes or one of the U.S. Navy’s Nimitz-class carriers.

Lockheed’s advanced projects division, Skunk Works, has reportedly been working on the futuristic power source since 2014 and claimed at the time that a CFR could be ready for production by 2019.

NOW IT’S OFFICIAL: FDA ANNOUNCED THAT VACCINES ARE CAUSING AUTISM!

THE FDA HAS PUBLISHED CONCLUSIVE PROOF ON THEIR WEBSITE THAT THE DTAP VACCINE CAN CAUSE AUTISM.

According to the FDA’s online Biologics Blood Vaccines document, a vaccine manufacturer admits on its package insert that their vaccination can cause autism as one of many adverse reactions.

These adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccine.

NASA receives response from Voyager 1 spacecraft 13 billion miles away after 37 years of inactivity

The thrusters aboard the Voyager 1 spacecraft just did what we thought was impossible. After 37 years of inactivity, NASA just received response from spacecraft 13 billion miles away, NASA said in a statement on its website. Voyager 1 is NASA’s farthest and fastest spacecraft. It was launched on September 5, 1977. Having operated for 40 years, 6 months and 14 days as of March 19, 2018, the spacecraft relies on small devices called thrusters to orient itself so it can communicate with Earth. These thrusters fire in tiny pulses, or “puffs,” lasting mere milliseconds, to subtly rotate the spacecraft so that its antenna points at our planet. Now, the Voyager team is able to use a set of four backup thrusters, dormant since 1980.

GM corn found in over 90% of tortillas in MX

A team of researchers has been surprised by the discovery that slightly over 90% of tortillas sold in Mexico contain traces of genetically modified corn.

Overall, the study by the National Autonomous University of México found that 82% of all corn products, such as tostadas, flour, cereals and snacks, contained some level of genetically modified sequences.

The researchers also found the herbicide glyphosate in approximately 27.7% of the samples that tested positive for transgenic corn.

Chinese Space Station Is Tumbling Toward an Easter Sunday Crash

The falling Chinese space station Tiangong-1 is tumbling in orbit and may crash back to Earth early Easter Sunday (April 1), experts say.

Estimates for the crash of Tiangong-1 range sometime between March 31 and April 1, with a focus of 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT) on April 1, according to Aerospace Corp., which is tracking the space lab's fall. That April 1 target comes with an error of 16 hours, so the spacecraft could potentially begin its fiery death dive anytime between Saturday and Sunday afternoon. An analysis by the European Space Agency also supports that re-entry estimate.

Mail-order cancer tests deliver false positives 40% of the time, new analysis claims

At-home genetic test for cancer risk are inaccurate 40 percent of the time, a new analysis claims.

The tests like the recently-approved version by DNA testing firm 23andMe are intended to detect mutations in the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes that are associated with higher risk of developing breast, ovarian and prostate cancer.

However, an analysis by Ambry Genetics, a company that interprets data from consumer DNA tests, found that nearly half of the results supplied in the last month from various other firms were false positives.

As a result at least seven people were given an unnecessary scare, adding yet another reason to question the reliability of such tests that the FDA has warned is 'seriously limited'.

Astro litter-picker launches to help clean up 7,600 tonnes of space junk

The world’s most advanced litter-picker will be launched into space next week to clean up floating debris which is threatening satellites and the International Space Station (ISS).

Surrey University has designed a spacecraft which can grab space junk then pull it into Earth’s atmosphere where it is burned up.

The little craft, named RemoveDebris, is due to launch from the Kennedy Space Centre on Monday, on board one of Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets.

The spaceship will dock at the ISS first and then deploy on its own on a test mission to snare a small satellite using a harpoon and net.

Huge 6.9 earthquake rocks Papua New Guinea triggering TSUNAMI warning

Papua New Guinea's New Britain island was hit by an earthquake at 10.25pm BST.

Downgraded from an initial magnitude of 7.2, the 6.9 earthquake struck 96 miles from the town of Kokopowhich is home to 20,000 people.

One resident of Rabaul in Papua New Guinea described the earthquake on tracker website CSEM-EMSC.

They said: “That was a massive jolt...I could feel it must be High intensity quake and ran out of the house. Thank God we are all safe.”

First Global Case of Super Gonorrhoea Found in Britain

A British man has contracted the world's first and worst 'super gonorrhoea' a sexually transmitted infection (STI) after returning from South East Asia.

Gonorrhoea, is the second most common bacterial STI in the UK, transmitted through unprotected vaginal, oral and anal sex. People are often unaware they are carrying the disease as doesn't present any symptoms, but left untreated can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.

Public Health England (PHE) say it's the first global report of a strand resilient to standard antibiotics, the man, who has a partner in the UK, picked up the superbug after having sex with a women in South East Asia.

Stop over-diagnosing and over-medicating our kids: Being moody is NOT the same as depression, mental health expert warns

Here's an example. In late 2017, the study 'Mental ill-health among children of the new century: Trends across childhood with the focus on age 14' was published by the National Children's Bureau in the United Kingdom.

This showed that self-reported negative emotions were present in about one quarter of this surveyed group, but this was interpreted as 25 per cent of 14-year-old girls in the UK suffer from depression!

The fact that parental reports identified about five per cent of this cohort as having significant mood problems was ignored by almost all commentators. This latter number is much more in keeping with known rates of depression in the population.

The presence of a mental disorder was not independently established and the discrepancy between parental and child reports was ignored.

After 150 whales in Australia now 50 dolphins dead in Argentina – Something unprecedented is killing our marine mammals!

Two shocking mass die-offs have made the headlines within the last 5 days. On March 22, 2018, 143 whales died after a mass-stranding at Hamelin Bay, 10km north of Augusta, Australia. Now, just 2 days after, 61 short-beaked dolphins were found washed ashore on a beach resort in Argentina. 49 died and 12 were saved. This mass die-off is unprecedented, as it represents the first case of marine mammals being stranded in this region of Argentina.

UK man has world-first case of super-strength gonorrhoea

A man in the UK has contracted a super-strength strand of gonorrhoea believed to be the first case globally to resist the main antibiotic treatment.

Public Health England (PHE) said the patient had a regular female partner in the UK, but contracted the infection from a sexual encounter with a woman in south-east Asia. He visited a health clinic for treatment in early 2018.

Attempts to get rid of the sexually transmitted infection with the recommended treatment – a combination of antibiotics azithromycin and ceftriaxone – have failed.

China’s failing satellite is just one example of a massive space debris problem

The European Space Agency estimates that there are now more than 170 million pieces of space debris in circulation, though only 29,000 of those are larger than about four inches. While the smaller space debris objects may not pose a threat to Earth because they would disintegrate before reaching the surface, “any of these objects can cause harm to an operational spacecraft. For example, a collision with a (four-inch) object would entail a catastrophic fragmentation of a typical satellite,” according to the European Space Agency. Smaller pieces could still destroy spacecraft systems or penetrate shields, possibly making bigger satellites such as Tiangong-1 unresponsive and turning them into massive pieces of debris themselves.

Mainstream media blackout as Italian parliamentary commission find major problems with vaccines after an 18-year investigation, finds higher risks of death and illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune disorders and hypersensitivity associated

On Feb. 7th 2018, an Italian Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry has issued a report that finds higher risks of death and illnesses such as cancer, autoimmune disorders and hypersensitivity associated to the administration of combined vaccines.

After an 18-year investigation into causes of thousands of cases of serious illnesses and deaths amongst personnel affected to military missions abroad, this Parliamentary Commission has found a significant risk of cancer and autoimmune diseases associated with the use of combined and multiple vaccines in the prophylactic schedule. While the 4th ‘Uranium’ Commission initially investigated other factors such as exposure to uranium from bombshells and other war hazards, the causal association with vaccines was raised both by personnel accounts and by the fact that soldiers who did not leave the country had also been affected.

Vaccines in the military vaccine program are the same as those used for infants.

Intersex shark, the first of its kind in the world, is discovered by stunned fisherman off the coast of Taiwan

The intersex shark was caught in a fishing trawl in the southern Taiwan Strait, and landed at Xiamen, China, in January 2017.

At first it appeared to be a fully grown male, with a developed pair of penis-like appendages called claspers that extend from the pelvic fin.

But a study of the animal's interns found it had a complete pair of ovotestes - gonads that contain both ovarian and testicular tissue.

This meant that the animal had both the male as well as the female reproductive organs.

E-cigarette flavors like 'chocolate fudge' and 'cinnamon muffin' are TOXIC to human cells, study finds

Chocolate Fudge, Berry Splash, and Blueberry Cinnamon-Streusel Muffin are just a few of the options, promoting the experience from harmless to (arguably) delicious.

However, a new study by the University of North Carolina warns those flavor combinations could, in fact, make e-cigarettes toxic.

Many of the liquids contain various dangerous chemicals to get their flavor, including vegetable glycerin and propylene glycol, which are both damaging to human cells.

Some flavors are much more toxic than others, the team found.

The findings come just a day after seven leading health agencies sued the FDA for delaying a review of e-cigarettes, warning there is plenty of evidence the as-yet unregulated devices could be wrecking havoc on users' health.

The Hogg Salute is not the NAZI salute. It is the Communist raised fist salute.

Infowars, Breitbart and other far-right media sites have begun comparing David Hogg, the Parkland, Fla., high school shooting survivor who has gained nationwide attention for speaking out for gun restrictions, to Adolf Hitler.
Hogg spoke to a crowd of thousands in Washington, D.C., and welcomed protesters to the “revolution” for stricter gun laws.

At the end of his speech, Hogg triumphantly raised his hand in the air. Right-wing social media is now claiming the gesture resembles Hitler’s Nazi salute.

More Lies from the Presstitutes

I have no doubt that gun control groups are organized by agents of the police state. The United States is falling apart.

The vast majority of Americans are being ground into the dirt by government at all levels. There is no democracy. There is only looting.

The One Percent fear that sooner or later even insouciant Americans might rise up. But they can’t if they are disarmed. That is all gun control is about.

Taking away guns gives control to governments. The founders of this
nation knew that regardless of the form of government, those in power
may become corrupt and seek to rule as the British did by trying to
disarm the populace of the colonies. It is not difficult to understand
that a disarmed populace is a controlled populace.

Ground under a West Texas oil patch is moving at an alarming rate

According to a new study from Southern Methodist University (SMU) scientists, published in the journal Nature Scientific Reports last week, years of fossil fuel production has destabilized a large swath of the Texas oil patch, causing the land to heave and sink at alarming rates.

Researchers found that satellite radar images obtained by the European Space Agency (ESA) between November 2014 and April 2017 revealed significant ground movement across a 4,000-square-mile area of West Texas that covers four counties. In one particular area, the ground had moved by as much as 40 inches in just two-and-a-half years.

In an SMU statement, research scientist Jin-Woo Kim said, “This region of Texas has been punctured like a pin cushion with oil wells and injection wells since the 1940s and our findings associate that activity with ground movement.”
