NASA fungus problem puts theory of 'Martian mushrooms' on toast

Festering fungus has become a problem way down in the bowels of NASA, and could lead to false identification of extraterrestrial material.

Research (PDF) presented at the 49th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference revealed that, in one clean room at least, NASA has a bit of an issue with earthly fungi.

Scientists at the NASA Astromaterials Acquisition and Curation office, which holds samples from the moon, meteorites, and pretty much anything that has come from space, took a closer look at one of their labs as part of a curation initiative.

What they found wasn’t too pretty. The agency's meteorite receiving lab, for example, may conform to ISO class 6 cleanliness standards, but swabs taken from the floor, a table, the inside of a laminar flow bench used to process meteorites and a nitrogen filter all produced fungal growths.

Cell tower radiation confirmed to cause cancer in animals

Researchers from the respected Ramazzini Institute have released the results of a sweeping lifetime study that involved exposing lab animals to environmental levels of radiation from cell towers. Their findings not only supported those of the U.S. National Toxicology Program that linked the radiation to a rare heart cancer in male rats known as Schwannoma of the heart, but they also discovered a higher incidence of malignant brain tumors in female rats. Rats of both genders displayed precancerous conditions like Schwann cell hyperplasia. In addition, the exposed rats had lower litter weights, raising particular concerns for children and pregnant women who live near these towers.

Antibiotic demand has surged 65% since 2000: Now 24.5 billion prescriptions are written a DAY - driving us closer to resistance that will cause a global public health crisis

Antibiotic prescriptions have shot up by 65 percent overall and by 39 percent per person in 15 years, new research reveals.

In the period from 2000 to 2015, 24.5 billion prescriptions for the infection-fighting drugs were written a day.

This rise comes even as scientists and doctors around the world warned that overuse was driving a decline in the drugs' effectiveness that could spell disaster if humans were plagued by an antibiotic-resistant superbug.

Rates of increase varied from country to country, with higher rates in poorer countries.

SpaceX' Falcon 9 rocket carved a giant hole in Earth's atmosphere creating a shockwave four times larger than California

A recent SpaceX rocket flight punched an enormous hole in Earth's atmosphere, according to new research.

The Falcon 9 rocket, launched in August 2017, generated huge circular shock waves and slashed a 559-mile (900km) hole in the ionosphere that lasted for three hours.

The record-setting puncture was akin to a localised magnetic storm and may have caused disruptions to GPS systems on Earth, experts said.

Shock waves created by the event stretched 1,099,827 square miles (1,770,000 square kilometers) or four times the area of California, the report found.

AEROMOBIL REVEALS FLYING TAXI THAT TRANSFORMS FROM CAR TO ELECTRIC AIRPLANE

Designed for both the skies and the streets, the AeroMobil 5.0 is the latest futuristic creation from the Slovakia-based flying car company. Rather than taking off as a traditional airplane does, the AeroMobil 5.0 is able to gain altitude through vertical thrust from powerful rotors embedded in retractable wings that deploy when you are ready to hit the skies. A rear propeller provides the vehicle with midair thrust. Billed as the “first and only electric VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing vehicle) to also drive on the road,” the AeroMobil 5.0 could potentially someday be your taxi, offering convenient flights right at your doorstep.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congrats, AeroMobil: I love companies in love with the future, and you are obviously one of those companies. Good on you!

Given the increasingly decaying road conditions on Oahu, courtesy of a government which insisted we needed a light rail system (on an island) which is currently hideously behind schedule, and in a cost-over-run status which could give an accountant a stroke, I WANT ONE!!!

Bringing Home the Bacon: Israeli Rabbi Says Cloned Pig Meat Could be Kosher

An Orthodox Israeli rabbi has claimed that genetically cloned pig meat could be consumed by Jews, including when eaten with dairy products.
Rabbi Yuval Cherlow said meat produced this way would not be subject to the same guidelines usually applied to regular pork. He suggested that cloned pork would have lost its “identity” and as a result Jews would also be able to eat it alongside dairy products.

Ynet published an interview in which Cherlow said that “cloned meat produced from a pig shall not be defined as prohibited for consumption – including with milk.”

The “cell of a pig is used and its genetic material is utilized in the production of food, the cell in fact loses its original identity and therefore cannot be defined as forbidden for consumption” was the stated rationale behind his claim. He added: “It wouldn’t even be meat, so you can consume it with dairy.”

GMO GEOPOLITICS: OF SEED BANKS AND SYRIA…

Over the years of watching and occasionally blogging about the international scope of the GMO issue, I've also watched the development of GMO geopolitics, as I like to call it. We may conveniently define this in two ways: (1) those powers of nations which are home to large agribusiness cartels and trusts, like the USA or Germany with IG Farbensanto, will pursue agricultural policies on the world stage designed to curtail, and eventually eliminate, natural (or as they're sometimes called, heirloom) seeds, thus gaining control over the world's food supply, and enriching themselves in the process, since heirloom seeds cannot be patented and charged a royalty for use, while GMO seeds can.

Air-fueled ion thruster could provide unlimited power for space missions

The European Space Agency (ESA) has successfully tested a prototype ion engine powered by air that could provide propulsion for orbiting satellites almost indefinitely, and could even help power future missions to Mars.

Satellites in orbit traditionally use an onboard propellant — usually xenon — to adjust their orientation and keep their orbit from decaying. Their life is limited by how much propellant they can carry, however. The new “air breathing” design skims molecules from the upper atmosphere and converts them into useable fuel.

Here’s John Bolton Promising Regime Change in Iran by the End of 2018

“The outcome of the president’s policy review should be to determine that the Ayatollah Khomeini’s 1979 revolution will not last until its 40th birthday,” Bolton said. (The 40th anniversary of the Iranian revolution will be on February 11, 2019.) “The declared policy of the United States should be the overthrow of the mullahs’ regime in Tehran,” Bolton added. “The behavior and the objectives of the regime are not going to change and, therefore, the only solution is to change the regime itself.”

ARE CORPORATIONS POISED TO OVERTAKE COUNTRIES?

It's a question to which many world thinkers adamantly answer "yes." In this bold vision for the future, national borders gradually wither away as transnational companies become ever more powerful, leading governments by the nose in pursuit of perfect supply chain efficiency. For advocates of this vision, the prevailing trends throughout the world, large companies' growing influence, the giant cash piles of companies like Apple and diminishing trade barriers all point to the coming predominance of the corporation.

US Trophy Hunting Plays Key Role in ‘Silent Extinction’ of Giraffes

The recent death of the last male northern white rhinoceros on Earth and the US’ lifting its trophy hunting ban on elephants and lions has provoked many conservationists to shine a light on another creeping tragedy: the “silent extinction” of giraffes.

Trophy hunting, the recreational killing of wild animals for ornaments, has grossly contributed to the decline of the giraffe population over the last few decades. According to the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN), around 110,000 "mature" giraffes were estimated to be in existence in 1985, but the number had dwindled to a startling 68,000 in 2015 and continues to decline.

"Whilst giraffes are commonly seen on safari, in the media and in zoos, people — including conservationists — are unaware that these majestic animals are undergoing a silent extinction," said Julian Fennessy, co-chair of the IUCN's giraffe and okapi specialist group.

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity marks 2,000th day on red planet

NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has now marked 2,000 days on the red planet.

That’s 2,000 days by Martian standards. A Martian sol, or solar day, is equivalent to 24 hours, 39 minutes and 35 seconds. So 2,000 days on Mars equal 2,055 days here on Earth.

Mass Stranding Kills Almost 150 Pilot Whales

Dozens of whales tragically died on the southwestern tip of Australia in the wee hours of Thursday morning.

Sometime between late Wednesday night and early Thursday morning, more than 150 short-finned pilot whales beached themselves on Hamelin Bay in Western Australia. Piled upon one another, weakly thrashing, they slowly perished before a scatter of saddened onlookers. By 9:30 AM, more than half were dead.

Officials shut down the beach and issued a “shark alert” in order to clear the water. Time was short and with each passing moment, there were fewer left to save. But working with these massive, powerful mammals in unpredictable weather conditions was a risk — not only for the whales but for the people desperately working to save their lives.

Driver Of Tesla Model X Dies After Violent Crash Incinerates Car

Last October, we reported that in the latest, at the time, conflagration involving a Tesla car bursting into flames after its batteries exploded, a Model S burned to a crisp after an accident on an Austrian highway. The car's 19-year-old female driver had entered a construction zone on the highway, and when she tried to shift from the local to the fast lane, the car lost control and hit the concrete divider wall along the side of the road. A moment later the electric car burst into flames. It was unclear if the autopilot was involved in the crash, but the the good news was that the driver survived the dramatic crash unscathed.

Large swath of West Texas oil patch is heaving and sinking at alarming rates

Two giant sinkholes near Wink, Texas, may just be the tip of the iceberg, according to a new study that found alarming rates of new ground movement extending far beyond the infamous sinkholes. Analysis indicates decades of oil production activity have destabilized localities in an area of about 4,000 square miles populated by small towns, roadways and a vast network of oil and gas pipelines and storage tanks.

Two giant sinkholes near Wink, Texas, may just be the tip of the iceberg, according to a new study that found alarming rates of new ground movement extending far beyond the infamous sinkholes.

That’s the finding of a geophysical team from Southern Methodist University, Dallas that previously reported the rapid rate at which the sinkholes are expanding and new ones forming.

Revealed: Forced sterilization programs in California harmed more than 20,000 from 1918 to 1953 – particularly Latinas

In the first half of the 20th century, approximately 60,000 people were sterilized under U.S. eugenics programs. Eugenic laws in 32 states empowered government officials in public health, social work and state institutions to render people they deemed 'unfit' infertile.

California led the nation in this effort at social engineering. Between the early 1920s and the 1950s, Iris and approximately 20,000 other people – one-third of the national total – were sterilized in California state institutions for the mentally ill and disabled.

Massive Oil Fields In Texas Are Moving Up to 40 Inches, Now 4,000 Square Miles of Geohazard

It began with sinkholes. Two of them, gaping mouths to nowhere opening up as if to swallow the town of Wink, Texas. As they expanded, there were fears they might collide, morphing into one giant void.

They first emerged in 1980, and things haven't gotten better since. Now, an unprecedented study reveals Wink and its vast sinkholes are just a tiny part of a much bigger problem – a vast stretch of historical oil fields that are heaving and sinking, covering an area almost the size of Connecticut.

Mother shares shocking photos of her three-year-old who suffered a severe allergic reaction to cheap makeup that left her blistered and swollen in an Illinois hospital

An Illinois mother has posted images on social media of the devastating images suffered by her three-year-old daughter after she bought her cheap makeup.

Kylie Craven said that she had no idea her child Lydia would suffer so terribly after she bought the apparently 'harmless, non-toxic' makeup from a local store in their hometown of Georgetown.

Within a day of applying the makeup from a set that included lipstick, blush and lip gloss, little Lydia's rash, blisters and swelling became so severe she had to be admitted to the local paediatrics unit.

THEY GOT HIM: TRUMP REPLACES MCMASTER WITH NEOCON SCUM JOHN BOLTON

Any support I’ve shown for Trump has gone out the window this evening. And no, I am not being melodramatic. I am a simple man with modest needs. One of them is for my country to stop fighting unnecessary wars. When you wake up and realize that we’re the bad guys and that the media propaganda is there to make you docile, you will see that nothing else matters but human life. Forget about healthcare, transgender bathrooms, abortion, tax cuts — everything is secondary to the life expectancy of the men and women who serve in our military — our sons and daughters, or neighbors.

In an unbelievable move, Trump has replaced Gen. McMaster with the very worst person living in America, John Neocon Scum Bolton.

Bolton was part of a neocon cabal, spearheaded by the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), founded by Bill Kristol, whose lineage is Trotskyite through and through.

John Bolton is a long time leader of the War Party, was a major promoter of the lies about Iraq which fostered our war, was former Vice President of the neocon nesting American Enterprise Institute and advisor to JINSA (Likud Think Tank in Washington which long urged Israel to violate Oslo accords). Bolton never gained congressional approval, the is legitimacy for his "Ambassadorship" to the UN and is despised by most of the outside world's nations.

America is not safer being hated and represented to the world by one of the main architects of the policies which led to such hatred. Every time he speaks he is a symbol of go-it-alone America and a lightening rod for hate against America.

The US Military Is Making Lasers That Create Voices out of Thin Air

Within three years, the Pentagon's non-lethal weapons lab hopes to have a direct energy weapon that can produce an effect like a haunted walkie-talkie or the biblical burning bush.

Watch the video above and listen carefully for what sounds like a human voice during the second spin. That’s not an audio recording or a broadcast transmitted over radio…it’s not human at all. It’s an auditory effect that’s created by military scientists who manipulated the air with lasers — and it’s the Pentagon’s most interesting idea for stopping people charging checkpoints, or just scaring the crap out of them.

The U.S. military’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Program, or JNLWD, is inching closer to a weapon that alters atoms to literally create words from thin air. It’s called the Laser-Induced Plasma Effect and, fingers crossed, they hope to be able to say intelligible words within the next three years.

In 2015, a whole new slew of flu vaccines found themselves getting approved by the Federal Drug Administration. This isn’t an uncommon practice; most flu vaccines pass inspection every year. It’s well-known advice that has been passed down from doctor to patient that the flu vaccine is something that we all should get, but it has been quickly surfacing that what’s in the vaccines–especially those from 2015 and after–might actually be more damaging than simply rolling the dice on getting the flu.

They use their fast, pulsed laser to irradiate a target of invisible wires and instantly create extremely hot, dense plasmas – with conditions approaching those inside the sun. These plasmas drive fusion reactions, giving off helium and flashes of energetic neutrons.

Retired FBI agent guilty of sex abuse Was bureau's chief of internal affairs

The alleged bomber Mark Anthony Conditt makes remarks on social media in 2012 about how a sex offender should not have to register after he has done his time.
Is this person related to former FBI official John H. Conditt?

By Associated Press | February 18, 2004

WASHINGTON -- The former chief internal watchdog at the FBI has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl and has admitted he had a history of molesting other children before he joined the bureau for what became a two-decade career.

John H. Conditt Jr., 53, who retired in 2001, was sentenced last week in Tarrant County Court in Fort Worth to 12 years in prison after he admitted he molested the daughter of two FBI agents after he retired. He acknowledged molesting at least two other girls before he began his law enforcement career, his lawyer said.

Conditt sought treatment for sex offenders after his arrest last year, said his attorney, Toby Goldsmith.
