Vesuvius ERUPTION WARNING: Europe's supervolcano threatening - 'it's BOILING!'

Research shows that a bubbling mass of magma “like a boiling pot of soup” is building beneath the Campi Flegrei volcano, western Naples - after decades of inactivity.

The 24 crater, 90 square mile supervolcano is more “dangerous” than before.

The last major eruption at the site was in 1538, after which magma exploded into the sky for several days.

Scientists believe a stream of liquid magma that is just a few miles from Mount Vesuvius has been bubbling at Campi Flegrei since the 1980s.

Lies Are Washington’s Chosen Path To Dominance

What should Putin make of Trump’s invitation to come to Washington to discuss the arms race?

My advice to Putin is not to accept. It is too risky for Putin to put himself in Washington’s hands where he could be arrested on any number of false charges for which he is already set up in the Western media.

SpaceX reaches the promised land of launching every two weeks

SpaceX has long talked a good game about increasing its launch cadence, but the company now appears to be delivering in a big way. After two launches in four days, the California-based company has now flown seven rockets in 2018—six Falcon 9 missions and one Falcon Heavy. That breaks down to one launch every 13 days this year.

This is a significant number because it brings the company within its longstanding goal of launching a rocket every two weeks. Indeed, at this pace, SpaceX will launch a total of 27 rockets in 2018, which is consistent with expectations set by the company's president and chief operating officer, Gwynne Shotwell.

MICHIGAN OKS NESTLÉ WATER EXTRACTION, DESPITE 80K+ PUBLIC COMMENTS AGAINST IT

In a much-watched case, a Michigan agency has approved Nestlé's plan to boost the amount of water it takes from the state. The request attracted a record number of public comments — with 80,945 against and 75 in favor. Nestlé's request to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality to pump 576,000 gallons of water each day from the White Pine Springs well in the Great Lakes Basin was "highly controversial," member station Michigan Radio reports. But despite deep public opposition, the agency concluded that the company's plan met with legal standards.

ANTIBIOTIC-RESISTANT "NIGHTMARE" BACTERIA ARE SPREADING ACROSS THE US

A new breed of “nightmare” bacteria resists pretty much all of our antibiotics – and it’s rapidly spreading across the US. The bacteria – called carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) – is different from your run-of-the-mill antibiotic-resistant bacteria because it is incredibly deadly, with 50 perfect of infected patients dying. Not only that, but it is spreading like “wildfire” with over 200 cases identified in 27 states.

SpaceX Cargo Capsule Arrives at Space Station with Tons of Supplies

A SpaceX Dragon cargo capsule carrying nearly 3 tons of supplies and science gear has arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) after a two-day orbital chase.

Astronauts aboard the ISS snagged the uncrewed Dragon today (April 4) at 6:40 a.m. EDT (1040 GMT) using the orbiting lab's huge Canadarm2 robotic arm. The cargo vehicle had launched Monday afternoon (April 2) aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, on a contracted mission for NASA.

That liftoff initiated the second mission for both the rocket's first stage and the Dragon. The booster helped launch another SpaceX cargo mission in August 2017, and this same capsule previously visited the ISS in April 2016. Such reuse is part of SpaceX's plan to slash the cost of spaceflight, thereby opening the heavens to exploration.

It’s Not My Fault, My Brain Implant Made Me Do It

By Laura Y. Cabrera, Michigan State University and Jennifer Carter-Johnson, Michigan State University

Mr. B loves Johnny Cash, except when he doesn’t. Mr. X has watched his doctors morph into Italian chefs right before his eyes.

The link between the two? Both Mr. B and Mr. X received deep brain stimulation (DBS), a procedure involving an implant that sends electric impulses to specific targets in the brain to alter neural activity. While brain implants aim to treat neural dysfunction, cases like these demonstrate that they may influence an individual’s perception of the world and behavior in undesired ways.

Mr. B received DBS as treatment for his severe obsessive compulsive disorder. He’d never been a music lover until, under DBS, he developed a distinct and entirely new music preference for Johnny Cash. When the device was turned off, the preference disappeared...

The Future Ain't What It Used To Be

This marks our our 10th year of doing this. And by “this”, we mean using data, logic and reason to support the very basic conclusion that infinite growth on a finite planet is impossible.

Surprisingly, this simple, rational idea -- despite its huge and fast-growing pile of corroborating evidence -- still encounters tremendous pushback from society. Why? Because it runs afoul of most people's deep-seated belief systems.

Our decade of experience delivering this message has hammered home what behavioral scientists have been telling us for years -- that, with rare exceptions, we humans are not rational. We're rationalizers. We try to force our perception of reality to fit our beliefs; rather than the other way around.

Crack In East African Rift: Continent Is ‘Splitting In Two’

A large crack, spanning several kilometers, made a sudden appearance recently in south-western Kenya. The tear, which is continuing to grow, is evidence to scientists that the continent is “splitting in two.”

The huge crack caused part of the Nairobi-Narok highway to collapse recently and was accompanied by seismic activity in the area. The East African Rift Valley stretches over 3,000 kilometers from the Gulf of Aden in the north towards Zimbabwe in the south, splitting the African plate into two unequal parts: the Somali and Nubian plates. Activity along the eastern branch of the rift valley, running along Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania, became evident when the large crack suddenly appeared in south-western Kenya.

Tablets that delay women's periods can be bought for as little as £9.50 without a prescription... but how dangerous are the side-effects?

Norethisterone has been used to treat conditions such as endometriosis (where womb-like tissue grows elsewhere in the body) for more than 25 years, but demand for the drug to delay periods is soaring, to go by the evidence of the growing number of places you can get it.

For while once you had to visit your GP for norethisterone, now it’s available from online pharmacies including Boots, Superdrug and LloydsPharmacy. You fill in your details and have the drug sent to your home for as little as £9.50, without seeing a medical professional.

This concerns experts because the drug has side-effects — including heart palpitations, bloating, tender breasts and nausea, according to the packaging.

Rarely, it can raise the risk of life-threatening deep vein thrombosis, which can result in a stroke or blood clot in the lungs.

Opioids prescribed less in states where medical marijuana legal, studies find

Geoff Sessions:-"Marijuana is a cure for opiate abuse? Give me a break!..... Maybe science will prove I'm wrong.

In one study, researchers at the University of Georgia:
They found prescriptions filled for all opioids decreased by 2.11m daily doses a year when a state legalized medical marijuana, and by 3.7m daily doses a year when marijuana dispensaries opened. Forty-one million Americans use Medicare Part D. The study analyzed data between 2010 and 2015.

America’s overdose crisis has claimed more lives each year since the early 2000s, when powerful opioid painkillers such as Oxycontin were aggressively marketed. In 2016, more than 64,000 people died of an overdose.

Flashback: Hidden Volcanoes Melt Antarctic Glaciers from Below

Antarctica is a land of ice. But dive below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and you'll find fire as well, in the form of subglacial volcanoes.

Now, a new study finds that these subglacial volcanoes and other geothermal "hotspots" are contributing to the melting of Thwaites Glacier, a major river of ice that flows into Antarctica's Pine Island Bay. Areas of the glacier that sit near geologic features thought to be volcanic are melting faster than regions farther away from hotspots, said Dustin Schroeder, the study's lead author and a geophysicist at the University of Texas at Austin.

This melting could significantly affect ice loss in the West Antarctic, an area that is losing ice quickly.

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.

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.

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.
