Cases of hepatitis E virus – which attacks the liver and in extreme cases can paralyse and kill – are rising, Dr Harry Dalton told a conference in Liverpool.

The gastroenterologist at Royal Cornwall Hospital Trust said the vast majority of cases can be tracked to European pig products such as hams and salamis.

HEV is particularly dangerous for the elderly, the pregnant and people with suppressed immune systems.

How much Marijuana has been Grown in Washington? Over 150,000 Pounds of Useable Marijuana was Produced in Fiscal Year 2017

How much marijuana has been grown in Washington? Over 150,000 pounds of useable marijuana produced in fiscal year 2017 under Washington’s Legal System. Washington’s legal marijuana market is booming, which is resulting in a lot of cannabis being grown.

According to the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board, there has been 363,268 pounds (lbs) of marijuana harvested in fiscal year (FY) 2017, which began on July 1, 2016 and ends on June 30. Of this harvested marijuana, 155,494 lbs is considered “useable”, which is what is sold at marijuana retail outlets.

Giant Plants of Southern Oregon

Jack would have forgot about the beanstalk if he was growing some of these seeds!

Oregon medical marijuana growers are allowed up to six plants per patient, and many patients grow for themselves. So if you’re an experienced and ambitious grower, but you’re only allowed half a dozen plants, what do you do? You grow them really, really big.

Under the Radar

The Pacific Northwest grows some of the world’s best marijuana, and legalization in Washington and Oregon has legitimized this rapidly expanding industry. Huge green crosses now advertise cannabis businesses along I-5, and the region’s green rush has been augmented by legalization in California, creating a sold green bloc of legal West Coast states. Competition has lowered prices, but the demand remains high, especially for organic, pesticide-free, medical-grade cannabis.

Who's at the Controls on KLM? Sometimes, the Dutch King

The Dutch King has got himself a part-time gig. Take note Great Britain.

For two decades, the king of the Netherlands has been putting the royal in KLM Royal Dutch Airlines.

King Willem-Alexander said in an interview published Wednesday that for the last 21 years, he has flown twice a month as a commercial airline co-pilot for KLM's Cityhopper subsidiary, a regional carrier that flies among European cities.

He was seldom recognized in uniform, particularly after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, when safety protocols were introduced to limit access to cockpits, he said.

Economic Crisis: 7 Signs that we need to Prepare for a Coming Economic Meltdown

While some are pointing to record stock gains as a sign of a booming economy, the fact is the only thing holding the economy up is hope; hope that the current administration can somehow dig the country out of the mess we’ve found ourselves in.

Financial Weapons Of Mass Destruction: The Top 25 U.S. Banks Have 222 Trillion Dollars Of Exposure To Derivatives

The recklessness of the “too big to fail” banks almost doomed them the last time around, but apparently they still haven’t learned from their past mistakes. Today, the top 25 U.S. banks have 222 trillion dollars of exposure to derivatives. In other words, the exposure that these banks have to derivatives contracts is approximately equivalent to the gross domestic product of the United States times twelve. As long as stock prices continue to rise and the U.S. economy stays fairly stable, these extremely risky financial weapons of mass destruction will probably not take down our entire financial system. But someday another major crisis will inevitably happen, and when that day arrives the devastation that these financial instruments will cause will be absolutely unprecedented.

HELP NEEDED: Azure Organic Farm in Oregon about to be forcibly mass poisoned with glyphosate by the county government

Sherman County may be issuing a Court Order on May 22, 2017, to quarantine Azure Farms and possibly to spray the whole farm with poisonous herbicides, contaminating them with Milestone, Escort and Roundup herbicides.

This will destroy all the efforts Azure Farms has made for years to produce the very cleanest and healthiest food humanly possible. About 2,000 organic acres would be impacted; that is about 2.8 times the size of the City of London, England, and 1.5 times the size of the city center of Philadelphia that could be sprayed with noxious, toxic, polluting herbicides.

The county would then put a lien on the farm to pay for the expense of the labor and chemicals used.

“Hang The Anti-Vaxxers” Is Called For By The Boston Herald Newspaper

The American media truly has lost its scruples, including its corporate mindset, and ethically should be denounced for inciting domestic terrorism and vigilantism regarding persons in the USA who oppose the use of mercury, aluminum, and other toxic chemicals being injected into their bodies and/or children’s bodies because they want to exercise their God- and Nature-given rights to self-determination.

Boston Herald calls for government-run execution squads to MASS MURDER naturopaths, scientists and journalists who oppose mercury in immunizations

In the latest lunatic, insane example of “vaccine rage” now being pushed by the criminal vaccine industry and its corporate-run media prostitutes, the Boston Herald’s entire editorial staff has openly called for what are essentially government-run execution squads to mass murder scientists, naturopaths, chiropractors and journalists who question the safety of injecting children with mercury, a brain-damaging toxin still found in flu shot vaccines administered to children and expectant mothers.

Expressing any concern at all about the toxic, brain-damaging ingredients in vaccines “ought to be a hanging offense,” says the entire Boston Herald editorial staff in this shockingly violent article which espouses the murder of naturopathic physicians and scientists such as myself. According to the Boston herald, we should all be hanged to death after being identified and rounded up.

Scott Adams: The Healthcare Confusopoly

Years ago I coined the term Confusopoly to describe any industry that benefits by keeping consumers confused. For example, mobile phone carriers know their offerings are too confusing for consumers to compare one company to another on cost. That is clearly intentional. If consumers could compare offerings it would drive profit margins to zero fairly quickly. By keeping their service and pricing confusing, they keep margins high.

Insurance companies are also confusopolies. So are law firms. And the entire financial services industry is little more than a confusopoly. All of those services can be simpler, but to simplify would invite real competition. No seller wants that.

How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

The USA uses a lot of prison labor.

If you buy products or services from any of the 50 companies listed below (and you likely do), you are supporting modern American slavery

With 5 percent of the world’s population and 25 percent of the world’s prison population, the United States has the largest incarcerated population in the world. No other society in history has imprisoned more of its own citizens. There are half a million more prisoners in the U.S. than in China, which has five times our population. Approximately 1 in 100 adults in America were incarcerated in 2014. Out of an adult population of 245 million that year, there were 2.4 million people in prison, jail or some form of detention center.

Action Over Slow Internet Service Sent to NY Court

After Spectrum took over Brighthouse, SLOW internet returned!

I fought with Brighthouse throttling internet speeds for years. Finally, they stopped throttling. But now that Spectrum has taken over Brighthouse, the throttling and slow speeds have returned. Here is how it works. When you boot your cable modem, you get your high speeds (200 for example). When you start using your internet connection, you continue to get high speeds UNTIL you start using your connection a lot and using up a lot of bandwidth - such as when downloading a movie. Then, they throttle your speed, typically by changing your DNS to a server thousands of miles away instead of your local server. Your speed will then remain at less than 10% of the speed you are paying for until you completely power down your modem and restart. There should be a class action suit about this. I pay $180 a month for high speed internet and basic cable TV. In return.. I get painfully slow internet and a load of garbage TV. That comes to $2160 per year for Spectrum service.

My internet now suddenly slows to a crawl or drops my connection - this happens 5-10 times per hour.

Spectrum outage map

We are continuing to be impeded by the very poor performance of Spectrum, which bought out Time Warner a while back. Calling tech support does no good. They seem determined to convince customers it is all the customers' fault, and you get the usual litany of reboot the cable modem, reboot the router, plug a computer directly into the cable modem, yadda yadda yadda, but as you can see from the map, the problem is with Spectrum itself, which is why they were sued by the State of New York last February for failing to deliver the promised bandwidth.

When I first signed on this morning, the performance was better, but it is rapidly in decline. I think they have over-subscribed their existing hardware. I am paying for 300 mbps and right now, according to Spectrum's own speed test, I am getting 8!

Can Cannabis Prevent and Treat Traumatic Brain Injury?

Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, is a serious condition usually caused by an external blow to the head that can cause severe and often chronic symptoms. These symptoms can be cognitive, behavioral, movement related, speech and visual impairing, mood altering, involve painful headaches, and even cause gastrointestinal issues.

In a three-year retrospective review of 446 separate cases of similarly injured patients, researchers found traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who had a history of cannabis consumption possessed increased survival rates compared to non-consumers (97.6 percent survived surgery, versus 88.5% of those who didn’t consume cannabis).

"Our data suggest an important link between the presence of a positive THC screen and improved survival after TBI," the researchers concluded. "With continued research, more information will be uncovered regarding the therapeutic potential of THC, and further therapeutic interventions may be established."

Roger Goodell: Marijuana addictive, unsafe for NFL players

But TBI's are okay. Dead from the neck up!

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell may be willing to consider allowing players to use marijuana for medical reasons, but he remains against the banned drug for recreational use.

Goodell said Friday morning on ESPN's "Mike & Mike" radio show that he continues to believe marijuana has an "addictive nature" and likely won't be cleared by the NFL anytime soon as a pain-relief alternative.

Delta passenger kicked off flight after bathroom emergency

If ve order you to pee on yourself you vill obey!

Video has emerged of a Wisconsin man who said he was forced off a Milwaukee-bound Delta Air Lines flight after he used a bathroom while the plane was delayed on the tarmac.
Video posted to YouTube shows the man, later identified as Kima Hamilton of Milwaukee, as he argues with a Delta crew member who asked him to exit the plane on April 18.
Fellow passenger Krista Rosolino, who recorded the video, described the incident in an open letter published to a blog.

She said Hamilton got out of his seat to quickly use the bathroom as the plane sat on the runway.
She said he was told that he couldn't use the bathroom the first time he asked to go. After waiting 30 minutes, Hamilton said it was an emergency and went to the restroom, according to Rosolino.

When he returned to his seat, however, a Delta employee told him to exit the plane.

It’s Different This Time…

While investors insist the markets are currently NOT in a bubble, it would be wise to remember the same belief was held in 1999 and 2007. Throughout history, financial bubbles have only been recognized in hindsight when their existence becomes “apparently obvious” to everyone. Of course, by that point is was far too late to be of any use to investors and the subsequent destruction of invested capital. This time will not be different. Only the catalyst, magnitude, and duration will be.

The Looting Machine Called Capitalism

Capitalism is the Banksters economic system they have imposed on the Planet.
America's Original economic system was free enterprise. When the Brits tried to impose an early form of capitalism on America known as Mercantilism they got a Revolution. The Banksters eventually got us back into their Satanic Economic System. PCR is 100% right. Capitalism and its handmaiden fractional reserve banking also known as Usury are nothing but a Gigantic Looting and Killing Machine!
The Looting Machine Called Capitalism
Paul Craig Roberts

I have come to the conclusion that capitalism is successful primarily because it can impose the majority of the costs associated with its economic activities on outside parties and on the environment. In other words, capitalists make profits because their costs are externalized and born by others. In the US, society and the environment have to pick up the tab produced by capitalist activity.

“Smoking Gun” Uncovered! Government Document Exposes Cancer Scandal of the Century

This story is incredible.
Not long ago, alternative cancer doctor Jeffrey Bradstreet was found dead, with a bullet hole in his chest.

Scott Adams: President Trump’s First 100 Days

Everyone observing politics seems to agree on two things about a president’s first 100 days in office:

1. 100 days is a meaningless, arbitrary marker for a president’s performance that is likely to be more misleading than useful.

and…

2. Let’s treat it like it is important! Reeeeeeee!

The thing that fascinates me the most about this situation is that the so-called “pro-science” people are giving Trump low grades for his first 100 days.

Allow me to connect some dots.

E. coli outbreak strain in several flour brands from Ardent Mills

The Public Health Agency of Canada has confirmed 27 cases of E. coli O121 infections across five Canadian provinces since November 2016 that have been linked to flour produced by Ardent Mills Canada. A 28th victim was a visitor to the country.

Seven of the outbreak victims were hospitalized, but are recovering. No deaths have been reported in relation to the outbreak.

E. coli O121 is a Shiga toxin-producing strain of E. coli. In recent years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it has been responsible for outbreaks associated with flour, frozen foods and raw clover sprouts.

Tesla is recalling most of the cars it sold in 2016

This morning Tesla announced a voluntary recall of 53,000 vehicles shipped in 2016. Tesla shipped a total of 76,000 vehicles in 2016, so this is a large fraction of the company’s sales for the year.

According to Tesla, a defective part in the parking brake could prevent the brake from releasing. “We do not believe this issue could ever lead to a safety concern for customers and we have not seen a single accident or injury relating to it,” Tesla said in an email statement to Vox. The worst that could happen is that a vehicle could be immobilized by a parking brake that can’t be disengaged.

FIGHT ATTENDANT American Airlines steward ‘whacks’ sobbing mum as she held twins then challenges another passenger to a FIGHT

People are starting to stand up against the bullies!

A FLIGHT attendant was filmed challenging a passenger to a FIGHT after a sobbing mum was allegedly “whacked” on board.

The American Airlines steward shouts “hit me” when a passenger came to the defence of the distressed mother.

Passenger Surain Adyanthaya, who filmed the shocking footage, claimed the flight attendant “‘violently took a stroller from a lady with her baby on my flight, hitting her and just missing the baby”.

Adyanthaya added: “They just involuntarily escorted the mother and her kids off the flight and let the flight attendant back on, who tried to fight other passengers.

“The mom asked for an apology and the AA official declined.”

'Nobody's got to use the internet,' argues idiot congressman in row over ISP privacy rules

Faced with an angry citizen asking why he had voted away their online privacy rights, US House Rep Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) had a remarkable answer: you don't have to use the internet if you don't like it.

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Wisconsin on Friday, the Republican legislator was asked about his vote to kill off proposed information safeguards – a move that effectively gave American ISPs the green light, as well as the right, to sell subscribers' sensitive personal details without requiring their consent or even having to inform them.

The voter disputed the Republican line that ISPs should not have to deal with stricter rules than companies like Google or Facebook, arguing that: "Facebook is not comparable to an ISP. I do not have to go on Facebook. I don't have to go on Google. My ISP provider is different than those providers."

Sensenbrenner's response? "Nobody's got to use the internet."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dear Wisconsinites: this man is a complete embarrassment to every voter in the state.

If this man is running against a donkey in the next election, please vote for the donkey; it will, assuredly, give you a better outcome in terms of personal rights.

TURNS OUT, A HORRIFYING NUMBER OF PEOPLE USE THEIR PHONES WHILE DRIVING

Now, a new study indicates that damn near everybody uses their phone while behind the wheel, damn near all the time. Using sensor data from more than 3 million drivers and 5.6 billion miles of trips, driving analytics company Zendrive found drivers are using their phones on 88 percent of their journeys. The average driver spends 3.5 minutes on the phone per one hour trip, a stat that sounds worse when you realize just a two-second distraction increases your risk of crashing by 20 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here in Hawaii, it is a $300 fine if you are caught using your cell phone while driving.

Breast cancer BOMBSHELL: Women being CONNED into mastectomy surgery by doctors who SCARE them with false genetic testing results, warn Stanford medical researchers

Women all across America are being conned into medically unnecessary breast removal surgery (bilateral mastectomy surgery) by doctors who scare them with “fake science” by falsely describing genetic testing results, warn researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Women who have harmless genetic variants called VUS (Variants of Uncertain Significance) are falsely being told by nearly half of all breast cancer surgeons that they have the “breast cancer gene” (BRCA1 or BRCA2) and therefore must have the surgery to save their lives. Famously, Angelina Jolie underwent a bilateral mastectomy after being told she carried the gene for breast cancer, but these new findings by Stanford researchers call into question whether her surgery was medically necessary at all.

Brain-damaging vaccines, pesticides and medicines generate nearly $800 billion a year in medical revenues

Mounting evidence point to certain medications as risk factors in developing some of the most debilitating neurological conditions in the country. A study published in the JAMA Internal Medicine found a correlation between long-term use of anticholinergic medications like Benadryl and the onset of dementia. Anticholinergic drugs were shown to inhibit the action of acetylcholine, an organic chemical that plays a crucial role in learning and memory.

Researchers at the University of Washington examined nearly 3,500 men and women ages 65 years and older and found those who used anticholinergic drugs had higher odds of developing dementia than those who did not take the drug. Study data also showed that higher dementia risk coincided with cumulative doses of anticholinergic drugs. Researchers said patients who took the drugs for an equivalent of three years or more had a 54% increased odds of developing the mental disorder.

Remember the Housing Bubble of 2008? Meet the car loan bubble of 2017…

After nearly a decade of being able to borrow money for next to nothing, interest rates are finally beginning to creep higher. Even the relatively small increases seen so far have caused problems in the previously booming automobile industry. The size of the auto loan market has ballooned to a historic 1.1 trillion dollars, and subprime lending has once again become the norm. Teaser offers that allow people to get cars with zero money down and 84-month financing have fueled a wave of irresponsible spending. Americans’ tendency to associate success with having nice things has driven many people who can’t afford to buy a house to get the next best thing — a brand new car.

This is how long it could take for United to recover from its PR disaster

YouGov chief executive officer Ted Marzilli compared the position United is in now to when Delta Air Lines’s computer glitch grounded hundreds of flights world-wide in August 2016. Then, the airline’s score fell from 9 to minus 33 over the course of a week (and has since risen to 1 — slightly above neutral).

“Right now United should be focusing more on how to address the social media storm swirling around its brand,” Marzilli said. “The brand has not been moving at social media speed to catch up and get ahead of the crisis. This may be indicative of a breaking point with the public resenting their treatment by large corporations.”

Researcher: 90% Of 'Smart' TVs Can Be Compromised Remotely

As recent Wikileaks data revealed, the lack of security and privacy standards in this space has proven to be a field day for hackers and intelligence agencies alike.

And new data suggests that these televisions are even more susceptible to attack than previously thought. While the recent Samsung Smart TV vulnerabilities exposed by Wikileaks (aka Weeping Angel) required an in-person delivery of a malicious payload via USB drive, more distant, remote attacks are unsurprisingly also a problem. Rafael Scheel, a security researcher working for Swiss cyber security consulting company Oneconsult, recently revealed that around 90% of smart televisions are vulnerable to a remote attack using rogue DVB-T (Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial) signals.
