Remarkable evolution of 'Indonesian fish people' revealed: Bajau tribe have spleens 50% larger than normal allowing them to hold their breath for 13 minutes when diving

A population of Indonesian 'fish people' have evolved spleens are 50 per cent larger than normal people, enabling them to free dive to depths of more than 200 feet (61 metres).

The genetic change discovered in the Bajau tribe - who can hold their breath for 13 minutes - is the first known example of a human adaptation to deep diving, researchers found.

For more than 1,000 years, the Bajau - known as 'Sea Nomads' - have wandered the seas of southern Asia in house boats, catching fish by free diving with spears.

The cost of being an alpha male: Study reveals testosterone-fueled hedge fund managers like those in 'Wolf of Wall Street' are more likely to LOSE money, commit fraud, and get fired

For the study, researchers measured the facial width-to-height ratio (fWHR) -- a feature that has been linked to high testosterone levels in adults -- of 3,228 male hedge fund managers from 1,901 investment firms.

They discovered that male hedge fund managers with a wider face -- a proxy for testosterone levels -- underperform those with a lower facial width-to-height ratio by 5.8% each year.

This contrasts with the images often portrayed in popular culture that glorify the bullish behavior of investment bankers, traders and hedge fund managers.

Think of billionaire corporate raider Gordon Gekko in 'Wall Street' or rogue trader Jordan Belfort in the 'Wolf of Wall Street'.

Not only are these managers more likely to produce lower returns, but they're also more likely to get fired, commit fraud and make risky investment decisions.

BOEHNER'S MARIJUANA LOBBYING IS SYMPTOMATIC OF SPECIAL-INTEREST PROBLEM

The former Speaker of House, John Boehner, and former Massachusetts Governor, Bill Weld, were added to the Board of Advisors for Acreage Holdings, an investment company heavily involved in the legal cannabis industry. This pair of former conservative leaders will certainly help to bring bipartisan support for the pro-legalization movement. They’re also part of an emerging trend of conservative revolving door lobbyists working on behalf of the legal marijuana industry.

Russia Threatens To Halt Critical Rocket Engine Exports To The U.S.

Despite earlier reported hopes that Putin seeks a deal with Trump, as opposed to escalating tensions, it appears Russia is planniong to do just that.

Last Friday (the 13th), just before the US, UK and France launched 105 Tomahawk missiles at Syria, we noted that as part of Russian countermeasures against US sanctions, it could halt titanium exports to the US, critical for the production of Boeing airplanes, which promptly sent Boeing's stock lower.

As it turns out Russia has leverage not only over the biggest US exporter of airplanes and military equipment: what piqued our interest, is the United States Department of Defense (DoD) dependency on Russian-manufactured rocket engines to launch military satellites into low Earth orbit (LEO).

Dazzling Lyrid Meteor Shower Peaks This Weekend!

Keep an eye out for shooting stars early Sunday morning (April 22): The Lyrid meteor shower has been active, and will hit its peak after midnight.

Observers under dark skies in the Northern Hemisphere can view as many as a dozen Lyrid meteors each hour in the early morning from mid- to late April. And up to 20 meteors per hour will likely be visible overnight Saturday to Sunday (April 21-22), according to NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and the Space Science Telescope Institute (STScI).

Is incumbent Lockheed Martin the only player in the GPS III follow-on competition?

Of the three companies interested in producing GPS III follow-on satellites, at least one of them — in this case, Boeing — will not be competing for the opportunity.

Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Boeing had all been awarded phase 1 contracts in 2016 to perform readiness feasibility studies for follow-on next-generation GPS III satellites from the 11th satellite onward.

At this point, however, it is unclear whether incumbent Lockheed Martin — the only competitor that has confirmed it has put forward a proposal — is a shoo-in for the contract by default.

U.S. Spy Satellite Agency To Seek “Tiny Rockets” For Small Sats

The U.S. National Reconnaissance Office, known for buying gigantic, “exquisite” spy satellites, is learning to think small for some of its needs.

“We want to explore what the tiny rocket marketplace can provide for us,” NRO Director Betty Sapp told an audience here at the Space Symposium on Tuesday.

She was referring to the burgeoning marketplace of small launch vehicles.

On April 23, the agency will issue a final request for proposals to industry for “Rapid Acquisition of a Small Rocket,” with bids due at the end of May. This follows a draft request for proposal published in March. The NRO told me this is the first time the agency’s Office of Space Launch will procure a rocket exclusively to launch small satellites.

The agency aims to award contracts in June for the winning companies to complete the project in time for a June 2019 launch.

Incredible skywriting display in Phoenix that looks like planes have PRINTED words in the air baffles locals: Here's how it was created

Incredible text that appeared above Phoenix has left onlookers confused as to how it was created.

The messages, including 'cisco #collabsummit', are a form of skywriting which has the appearance of digitally typed text.

Skytyping, or digital skywriting, is a technique whereby smoke is emitted in a series of bursts, each of which can be the length of a skyscraper.

These appear like the text produced by old fashioned dot matrix printers, in which characters are formed on the page by printing rows and columns of ink dots.

Surprise! Wireless brain implants are not secure, and can be hijacked to kill you or steal thoughts

Scientists in Belgium have tested the security of a wireless brain implant called a neurostimulator – and found that its unprotected signals can be hacked with off-the-shelf equipment.

And because this particularly bit of kit resides amid sensitive gray matter – to treat conditions like Parkinson's – the potential consequences of successful remote exploitation include voltage changes that could result in sensory denial, disability, and death.

Soyuz later! Russia might exit satellite launch business

Russia has dropped a broad hint that it might leave the space launch business to private operators.

Space launches have become a relative commodity: SpaceX publishes a price list offering a Falcon 9 trip to geosynchronous transfer orbit for $62m, or $90m for Falcon Heavy.

Russia's official newsagency TASS carried a report suggesting the country might let the new generation of private launch vehicles have the business to themselves rather than try to build a platform that can compete with SpaceX.

he Painful Truth About Last Year’s Failed Flu Vaccine

“…most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.” – From the British Medical Journal editor, Peter Doshi, MD

“71 people would need to be treated with the flu vaccine to prevent one case. In other words, the flu vaccine did nothing for 70 out of 71 who received it. That means this study found the flu vaccine failed 99% (70/71).” — Dr David Brownstein

“Under ideal conditions (when the vaccine actually matches the main viruses circulating that season) you need to vaccinate 33 healthy adults to avoid one set of influenza symptoms. 33 is what is called the NNV (Number Needed to Vaccinate).” – Dr Tom Jefferson of the Cochrane Collaboration (Cochrane Database Syst. Rev. 2018. Feb. 1,2:CD001269)

Salisbury Nerve Agent Attack Reveals $70 Million Pentagon Program at Porton Down

The Pentagon has spent at least $70 million on military experiments involving tests with deadly viruses and chemical agents at Porton Down – the UK military laboratory near the city of Salisbury. The secretive biological and chemical research facility is located just 13 km from where on 4th March former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were found slumped on a bench following an alleged Novichok nerve agent poisoning.

A Conversation on Race — Paul Craig Roberts

Considering that the only slavery experienced by any living black or white person is income tax slavery, race is an issue only because it has been orchestrated as an issue along with gender and sexual preference. These divisive issues are the products of Identity Politics spawned by cultural Marxism.
But orchestrated histories are not fact-based.

The working class, designated by Hillary Clinton as “the Trump deplorables,” is now the victimizer, not the victim. Marxism has been stood on its head.
In real Marxism, conflict is class conflict. Workers and capitalists have different interests, and history is a struggle between material interests. The capitalist is the villain and the workers are the victims.

In the pseudo Marxism of Identity Politics, the white race is the villain, especially the white heterosexual male, and racial minorities, women, and homosexuals are the victims.
But orchestrated histories are not fact-based.

Britain admits OPCW did not confirm ‘essential evidence’ on origin of Skripal poison

The British delegation to the OPCW has admitted that international chemical weapons inspectors did not confirm the origin of the nerve agent used in the Salisbury ex-spy poisoning.
The UK’s representative to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), Peter Wilson, said identifying the nerve agent is an “essential part of the investigation,” and that the OPCW has identified neither its origin nor the laboratory where it was produced.

"But of course, while the identification of the nerve agent used is an essential piece of technical evidence in our investigation, neither DSTL’s analysis, nor the OPCW’s report, identifies the country or laboratory of origin of the agent used in this attack," he said.

The British government claims a Soviet-era nerve agent that has become known as Novichok was used against Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia and accused Russia of producing and deploying it.

SCIENTISTS ACCIDENTALLY DEVELOP 'MUTANT' ENZYME THAT EATS PLASTIC

Researchers in the UK and the U.S. have inadvertently engineered an enzyme that eats up plastic.

The enzyme is able to digest PET (polyethylene terephthalate)—the same material used in the ubiquitousplastic bottle that's clogging up landfills, coastlines and oceans around the world.

Amazingly, this discovery only happened by chance. Scientists from the University of Portsmouth in the UK and the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) were examining the structure of a natural enzyme, Ideonella sakaiensis, found in 2016 at a Japanese waste recycling center. This enzyme could already break down PET plastic—it just doesn't do it very quickly.

To understand how Ideonella sakaiensis evolved, the research team "tweaked" the structure of the enzyme by adding some amino acids, according to John McGeehan, a Portsmouth professor who co-led the work. They ended up creating an enzyme that worked even faster than the natural one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This... is a very exciting, and hopeful, development!!

There is no good scientific or clinical basis for this claim, and a 2014 study of more than 1,500 women found no association between wearing a bra and breast cancer risk.”

That book they are referring to … no doubt, has everything to do with my special guest – who will expose the true connection between bras and breast cancer.

Could antibiotics from men's beards or the soil in your back garden be the ultimate weapons in the battle against the superbugs?

Wounded from battle, ancient Egyptian soldiers would fill their injuries with copper filings that would come off their swords as they sharpened them.

The idea was that this would prevent the wounds getting infected and speed up healing — though they didn't quite understand how it worked at the time.

Now, 5,000 years later, researchers have resurrected this idea as a way to treat infections and counter the devastating rise of bacterial resistance that's rendering many of our antibiotics useless.

Research has shown that copper has a powerful antibacterial effect, shutting down energy production in the bacteria and damaging their DNA. Not only does this kill the bugs, but damaging DNA also means the bacteria cannot develop resistance to copper.

Scientists warn that many pharma drugs DESTROY our gut microbiome, causing us to be more vulnerable to disease

You’ve probably heard by now that antibiotics can seriously impact your gut microbiome, but it turns out that this action is not just limited to antibiotics. Now, scientists from Germany’s European Molecular Biology Laboratory have found that many drugs that target human cells rather than bacteria can cause changes in microbiome composition as well.

In fact, the scientists found that more than 25 percent of the 923 non-antibiotic drugs studied decreased the growth of one or more species of human gut bacteria. Some of the drugs that were identified as problematic include anti-diabetics, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, atypical antipsychotics, and proton pump inhibitors.

Western Military Debacle in Eastern Ghouta

Compiled by Chinese intelligence analysts and explained below by Evgeniy Satanovskiy, one of Russia’s leading Middle East experts, it throws a new light on the situation in Syria and, indirectly, the Skripals poisoning too.
According to the Chinese analysts hundreds of U.S. Special Forces and advisors were killed or wounded in East Ghouta during the recent Syrian Arab Army assault. On March 17 alone Chinese analysts estimate that as many as 200 U.S. Special Forces personnel were “eliminated”.

Trump a Geopolitical Know-Nothing Endangering Humanity

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
He’s a real estate businessman/television personality, America’s first Reality TV president.

A geopolitical know-thing, he largely knows rubbish fed him in daily briefings, along with what extremist neocons infesting his administration tell him and Fox News disinformation, his favorite channel – all of the above manipulating his thinking.

He’s not intellectually gifted like Jefferson, John Adams and John Quincy Adams, Teddy and Franklin Roosevelt, Madison, Lincoln, Wilson and Jack Kennedy.

Unlike TR and JFK, he disdains reading, preferring oral communications in simple language. He can’t be bothered with policy papers, nothing more than a brief paragraph or two, if that.

7 Facts About Bacteriophages

Scientists have isolated bacteriophages that destroy the superbug Clostridium difficile (C. diff). C. diff typically affects the digestive system causing diarrhea and colitis.

Treating this type of infection with bacteriophages provides a way to preserve the good gut bacteria, while destroying only the C. diff germs. Bacteriophages are seen as a good alternative to antibiotics. Due to antibiotic overuse, resistant strains of bacteria are becoming more common. Bacteriophages are also being used to destroy other superbugs including drug-resistant E. coli and MRSA.

The strain which is resistant to five types of antibiotics is predicted to spread across the globe, according to the National Institute of Health Islamabad.

It is expected to replace the weaker strains in areas where they are common as experts recognise just one remaining working antibiotic.

Azithromycin is the only remaining method of combating the disease however just one more genetic mutation could void the use of the drug.

DONALD TRUMP ORDERED SYRIA STRIKE BASED ON A SECRET LEGAL JUSTIFICATION EVEN CONGRESS CAN’T SEE

Trump used media reports as his justification.

ON FRIDAY NIGHT, President Trump ordered the U.S. military to conduct a bombing attack against the government of Syria without congressional authorization. How can this be constitutional, given the fact that Article I, Section 8 of America’s founding document declares that “The Congress shall have Power … To declare War”?

The deeply bizarre and alarming answer is that Trump almost certainly does have some purported legal justification provided to him by the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — but no one else, including Congress, can read it.

Despite their initial successes, submarine pioneers were still eager to find some means to free their boats from the necessity of surfacing frequently for access to the atmospheric oxygen demanded by the gasoline or diesel engines that charged the batteries. A number of approaches were tried, but eventually, open-cycle diesel engines, lead-acid batteries, and electric motors for submerged propulsion became the standard submarine engineering plant that served well through two world wars.

Sweden's Super Stealth Submarines Are So Lethal They 'Sank' a U.S. Aircraft Carrier

In 2005, USS Ronald Reagan, a newly constructed $6.2 billion dollar aircraft carrier, sank after being hit by multiple torpedoes.

Fortunately, this did not occur in actual combat, but was simulated as part of a war game pitting a carrier task force including numerous antisubmarine escorts against HSMS Gotland, a small Swedish diesel-powered submarine displacing 1,600 tons. Yet despite making multiple attacks runs on the Reagan, the Gotland was never detected.

This outcome was replicated time and time again over two years of war games, with opposing destroyers and nuclear attack submarines succumbing to the stealthy Swedish sub. Naval analyst Norman Polmar said the Gotland “ran rings” around the American carrier task force. Another source claimed U.S. antisubmarine specialists were “demoralized” by the experience.

When a Chinese Submarine Appeared In The Middle Of A Carrier Battle Group

On 11th November 2006, the Commander of the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet at the time, Gary Roughead, made a historic visit to China in a hope of improving the relations between the two countries. His visit was intended to organize a joint military exercise that emphasized the search and rescue role of the Navy and was to take place on 19th of November that year.

However, the visit was overshadowed by the incident that occurred during an American naval exercise near the island of Okinawa.
