Night Owls May Have 10 Percent Higher Risk of Early Death, Study Says

By Kristen Knutson, Northwestern University and Malcolm von Schantz, University of Surrey

Do you wake up bright eyed and bushy-tailed, greeting the sunrise with cheer and vigor? Or are you up late into the night and dread the sound of your alarm clock? We call this inherent tendency to prefer certain times of day your “chronotype” (chrono means time). And it may be more than a scheduling issue. It has consequences for your health, well-being and mortality...

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.

71 Out of 103 Destroyed: Here's How Syria's Air Defense Repelled West's Missiles

Perhaps the most surprising news surrounding the US, British and French strike on Syria Saturday morning was the report that the country's Air Defense Force managed to shoot down just shy of 70% of the Western cruise missiles launched. Sputnik looks at how the Syrians managed to do it.

Are We Over the US/UK Fomented Crisis In Syria?

Paul Craig Roberts

It appears from the very limited US missile attack, most of which were intercepted and destroyed by Syrian air defenses, that the US military prevailed over the crazed John Bolton and carefully avoided a strike that would have resulted in a Russian response. No significant Syrian site appears to have been targeted, and no Russians were endangered.

World War III Is Not Imminent

Russia doesn’t have to engage the U.S. to the point where World War III starts. If it understands America’s weaknesses, it can wait while we self-destruct.

The U.S. government has outmoded second generation military forces that are incapable of conducting 4GW (fourth generation warfare). The U.S. leadership is poor. It doesn’t think ahead.

The U.S. does not believe in the principles of its founding. It doesn’t believe in the self-determination of nations. These principles form a kind of social, legal and political law based upon the natural rights of the persons who get together to form by declaration a People, a territory, and a government.

AIR-INDEPENDENT PROPULSION

AIP - The Early History
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.

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.

"Pacific Rim of Fire" Island of Ambae Vanuatu declared state of emergency after the latest volcano eruption as 11,000 prepare for evacuation

Vanuatu authorities have declared a state of emergency after the latest volcano eruption on the northern island of Ambae.

Villagers on the Vanuatu island of Ambae were facing their second evacuation in seven months Friday after a volcano rumbled back to life and rained ash on their homes.

According to AFP authorities in the Pacific nation have declared a state of emergency on the northern island, where 11,000 people were forced to leave last September.

Many have only just returned home but the Vanuatu Meteorology and Geo-Hazards Department said the Manaro Voui volcano was undergoing a level three eruption, the mid-point in a five-level scale.

National disaster ministry director general Jesse Benjamin said any evacuation would be more orderly than the one carried out in September when a flotilla of small vessels was pressed into service to rush people off the island.

Top medical journals accused of skewing research by raking in millions of dollars in 'bribes' from drugs firms

Several of the top medical journals in the US have found to be raking in millions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies, a practice that calls the reliability of those journals into question.

Nearly two thirds of medical research in the US is underwritten by companies, totaling more than $100 billion annually.

This is potentially problematic because companies have a financial stake in study results and thus could have an incentive to publicly report results that put them in a favorable light and conceal less flattering findings.

Reports have revealed that many top medical journals may be financially motivated to publish the studies that are unfairly skewed in favor of drug firms both through printing fees and payments to journal editors.

Iron tablets taken by millions of women during pregnancy or to combat heavy periods may cause bowel cancer, study finds

Even low doses of the chemicals ferric citrate and ferric EDTA, which are commonly found in over-the-counter iron supplements, increase levels of a protein associated with the disease, a study found.

Lead author Professor Scheers, from the Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, said: 'We can conclude ferric citrate and ferric EDTA might be carcinogenic, as they both increase the formation of amphiregulin, a known cancer marker most often associated with long-term cancer with poor prognosis.'

This is not the first time such concerns have been raised, with a study released two years ago suggesting the DNA of cells in blood vessels can be destroyed within 10 minutes of swallowing iron tablets.

Anti-GMO mosquito activist dies in a swimming pool

A Florida Keys activist known for fighting off the release of genetically modified mosquitoes near her home died Tuesday in Washington, D.C.

Mila de Mier, 45, was found face down in a swimming pool at a hotel at the Washington D.C. Convention Center at 9:35 a.m. Tuesday, according to WJLA.

The D.C. Fire Department says the drowning happened at the Cambria Hotel & Suites Washington, D.C. Convention Center, WJLA reported. Medical crews attempted to treat her but later pronounced her dead.

People across Florida took to social media to pay tribute to de Mier, a seemingly tireless activist who was in D.C. as part of her fight against GM mosquitoes.

Cosmonautics Day: What Yuri Gagarin Meant Then And Now

Today, April 12th, the inhabitants of our planet are celebrating perhaps the most unique holiday: Cosmonautics Day. The point of this holiday is not necessarily to glorify the technological achievements of the Cold War-era superpowers who first stepped into space, but to remind us all that the planet Earth is our common home.

Since its inception, mankind has been accustomed to thinking in terms of antagonism, of dividing the whole world into “ours” and “others.” Ethnic, racial, religious, and social differences and contradictions are often raised to the level of absolutes. Only in the exploration of the cosmos does the common prevail over the individual. Such ideas of cosmic unity were profoundly elaborated in the works of the philosophers of Russian Cosmism, and were later developed in the books of the great American school of science fiction.

MASSIVE LODE OF RARE-EARTH METALS FOUND IN JAPANESE WATERS

The world is dependent on a steady supply of rare-earth elements such as yttrium, europium, terbium, dysprosium. They go into computers, phones, electric cars, solar panels, batteries, and electronic equipment. China is the world's biggest supplier of rare-earth elements, and uses its monopoly position as an effective bargaining chip. But Japan just announced that it has discovered a massive lode of rare earth materials that could satisfy the world's requirements on a "semi-infinite basis" (love that term).

Goldman Sachs asks in biotech research report: 'Is curing patients a sustainable business model?'

Goldman Sachs analysts attempted to address a touchy subject for biotech companies, especially those involved in the pioneering "gene therapy" treatment: cures could be bad for business in the long run.

"Is curing patients a sustainable business model?" analysts ask in an April 10 report entitled "The Genome Revolution."

"The potential to deliver 'one shot cures' is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies," analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. "While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow."

Scientists find 'SEMI-INFINITE' trove of rare-earth materials in shock discovery in Japan

A DISCOVERY has given manufacturers the opportunity to make an almost unlimited amount of batteries, mobile phones and electric cars after a “semi-infinite” trove of rare metals were discovered off the coast of Japan.

...

The report, published in Scientific Reports, says that the patch contains 16 million tons of rare-Earth oxides – equivalent to 780 years' worth of yttrium supply, 620 years of europium, 420 years of terbium and 730 years of dysprosium.

It added that the discovery "has the potential to supply these metals on a semi-infinite basis to the world”.

ESA set to run remote software update on its Mars Express orbiter to keep it stable as the craft approaches 15th year in operation

ESA said Wednesday four of Mars Express' six gyroscopes - used to measure the probe's rotation - are failing, which would end the mission in 2019.

So engineers decided to rewrite the spacecraft's computer code so it can orient itself using pictures of surrounding stars most of the time.

The code was uploaded last Sunday. A reboot is planned Monday.

While similar patches have been developed for other spacecraft, mission manager Patrick Martin said 'this is certainly the most complex and extensive software rewrite we've done in recent memory.'

86th Doctor Found Dead in GA River, CDC & Atlanta PD Give Conflicting Stories

A body found in the Chattahoochee River has been identified as missing CDC scientist, Dr. Timothy Cunningham. 1 The doctor had been missing in Georgia since February 12th. According to authorities, he left work early that day saying he wasn’t feeling well, and wasn’t seen again.

All of his belongings, including his car and beloved dog, Bo, were found at his residence. Cunningham was working as an epidemiologist in the CDC’s chronic disease unit.

Sadly, he is the 86th doctor found dead in our holistic doctor death series. I recently signed a contract with a Hollywood production company to have my story made into a film so that we can continue to get the word out to the people. I asked for no money, I just want the public to finally know about these deaths, many of whom were our friends and colleagues.

North Korea has a big tuberculosis problem. It’s about to get worse.

A Bloomberg News story this week warned of the threat of North Korea’s “other weapon” — tuberculosis. In February, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria announced that it would suspend grants to combat tuberculosis and malaria in North Korea by June 30.

Global Fund officials stress that they hope to resume funding to the country in the future, and North Korean officials have implored the Global Fund to maintain its funding on humanitarian grounds.

Since 2002, this unique partnership between governments, the private sector and civil society groups has awarded more than $33 billion in grants to treat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria to save more than 22 million lives in more than 100 countries. From 2010 to 2017, the Global Fund provided more than $69 million for tuberculosis and nearly $34 million for malaria treatment in North Korea. So what’s going on North Korea now?

About 2.8 million people die at work every year

About 2.8 million people die every year worldwide in the workplace, representatives of the International Social Security Association (ISSA) said. Economic losses, according to experts, reach up to four percent of global GDP. The rate of occupational fatality in the world makes up about 2.8 million people a year, ISSA Secretary General Hans-Horst Konkolewsky said during the Russian week of labor protection, RIA Novosti news agency reports. Konkolewski noted that health problems still remain the main cause of occupational fatality in the world. Only 15% of fatal outcomes at production occur as a result of accidents. Therefore, one needs to pay more attention to health issues, the head of the ISSA said. The official also said that economic damage from occupational fatality in production makes up four percent of global GDP.

A Wedding That Became a Funeral

On December 12, 2013, a United States aerial drone launched four Hellfire missiles on a convoy of 11 cars and pickup trucks during a counterterrorism operation in rural Yemen. The strike killed at least 12 men and wounded at least 15 others, 6 of them seriously.

Yemen authorities initially described all those killed in the attack outside the city of Rad`a as “terrorists.” The US government never officially acknowledged any role in the attack, but unofficially told media that the dead were militants, and that the operation targeted a “most-wanted” member of Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) who was wounded and escaped.

Witnesses and relatives of the dead and wounded interviewed by Human Rights Watch in Yemen said the convoy was a wedding procession. They said everyone in the procession was a civilian, including all of the dead and injured, and that the bride received a superficial face wound.

The reference was to a caravan of vehicles on its way to or from a wedding in Yemen that was eviscerated, evidently by a US drone via one of those “surgical” strikes of which Washington is so proud. As one report put it, “Scorched vehicles and body parts were left scattered on the road.”

US Military Admits: We Deliberately Bombed a Hospital in Iraq

The U.S. military said Thursday that it intentionally bombed a hospital in Mosul, Iraq as part of its efforts to "eradicate" Islamic State (ISIS) fighters.

The attack on the Al Salam hospital complex took place Wednesday at the request of Iraqi forces, with coalition aircraft using "precision-guided munitions," Air Force Col. John Dorrian, spokesperson for the U.S.-led coalition against ISIS, told reporters.

He said "it's very difficult to ascertain with full and total fidelity" that there were no civilian casualties, whether in the building targeted or elsewhere within the hospital complex.

Baghdad hospital bombed

US aircraft hit a Red Crescent maternity hospital in Baghdad, the city's trade fair, and other civilian buildings today, killing several people and wounding at least 25, hospital sources and a Reuters witness said.
The attacks occurred at 9.30am (0630 BST) and caught motorists by surprise as they ventured out during a lull in the bombing. At least five cars were crushed and their drivers burned to death inside, Reuters correspondent Samia Nakhoul said.

Patients and at least three doctors and nurses working at the hospital were among those wounded.

The missiles obliterated wings of Baghdad's trade fair building, which lies next to a government security office that was apparently missed in the bombings.

Iraq's information minister, Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf, told a news conference that overnight bombings by US-led forces killed 24 civilians and injured 186 across the country. In Baghdad, he said, 10 civilians had been killed and 90 wounded.

One Day After Warning Russia of Civilian Casualties, the U.S. Bombs a Hospital in Afghanistan

Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power marched to Twitter to proclaim: “We call on Russia to immediately cease attacks on Syrian oppo[sition and] civilians.” Along with that decree, she posted a statement from the U.S. and several of its closest authoritarian allies — including Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the U.K. — warning Russia that civilian casualties “will only fuel more extremism and radicalization.”

Early this morning, in the Afghan city of Kunduz, the U.S. dropped bombs on a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)). The airstrike killed at least nine of the hospital’s medical staff, and seriously injured dozens of patients. “Among the dead was the Afghan head of the hospital, Abdul Sattar,” reported the New York Times.

KABUL, Afghanistan — A crowded hospital in the embattled city of Kunduz that treats war wounded came under attack on Saturday and the American military acknowledged that it may have killed 19 patients, staff members and others at the facility while firing on insurgents nearby.

The attack, which the military said in a statement might have been “collateral damage” that occurred while engaging militants, drew a fierce international outcry. The head of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, condemned it and called for a “thorough and impartial investigation.” It also renewed scrutiny of the United States military’s record of causing civilian casualties, which has alienated the Afghan public and often undermined relations with the government here.

ASTRONOMERS JUST FOUND 72 STELLAR EXPLOSIONS, BUT DON’T KNOW WHAT’S CAUSING THEM

A supernova is one of the most impressive natural phenomena in the Universe. Unfortunately, such events are often brief and transient, temporarily becoming as bright as an entire galaxy and then fading away. But given what these bright explosions – which occur when a star reaches the end of its life cycle – can teach us about the Universe, scientists are naturally very interested in studying them.

Using data from the Dark Energy Survey Supernova (DES-SN) program, a team of astronomers recently detected 72 supernovae, the largest number of events discovered to date. These supernovae were not only very bright, but also very brief – a finding which the team is still struggling to explain. The results of their study were presented on Tuesday, April 3rd, at the European Week of Astronomy and Space Science in Liverpool.

Trump Heads World Peace Into the Abyss Blindfolded

He’s a geopolitically ignorant businessman, influenced by hawkish neocons raging for endless wars, convincing him it’s the right thing to do, concealing the risks.

He’s blind to the danger endless wars of aggression pose, especially in Syria.

Russian and US forces in the country have polar opposite objectives – combating terrorism v. supporting it, seeking conflict resolution v. rejecting it, pursuing world peace and stability v. waging endless wars of aggression.

Clashing would pit the world’s dominant nuclear powers against each other. Does Trump understand the risks he’s taking?

The aerospace company Northrop Grumman built Zuma for the U.S. government and provided the payload adapter for the flight.

'MERGER FROM HELL' REPORTEDLY APPROVED BY DOJ, PUSHING AGRICHEMICAL CHOKEHOLD ON FOOD SYSTEM

Watchdog groups sounded alarms on Monday after the Wall Street Journal reported that the proposed mega-merger of Bayer and Monsanto has cleared its final regulatory hurdle in the U.S.

The reported approval from the Justice Department came "after the companies pledged to sell off additional assets," the Journal reported, and despite concerns raised by hundreds of food and farm groups. It also comes weeks after the European Commission gave its thumbs up.

"The approval of the third supersized seed merger, after ChemChina-Syngenta and Dow-DuPont," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, "leaves farmers vulnerable to price gouging for seeds and other supplies and strengthens the hold a few dominant corporations have over the entire food system."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how many members of the DOJ approving this merger hold stock in these companies, even if they would never, ever eat the food grown from those seeds.

The town facing a 'humanitarian crisis' caused by the radiation from state-of-the-art street lamps: Residents have endured insomnia, nose bleeds and even stillbirths, scientist claims

Radiation given off by state-of-the-art street lamps is wreaking havoc on the residents of Gateshead.

According to local scientist Mark Steele, 58, people living in the area are experiencing symptoms of insomnia, nose bleeds and several women have even endured the horror of stillbirths since the introduction of LED lamps that emit 5G radiation.

In his circle alone, Mr Steele is aware of three women who have lost their children since the lights were installed in September 2016, with one giving birth to a deformed child that survived just three hours.

He said: 'We are seeing babies dying in the womb as these transmitters are situated outside people's bedroom windows. It's a humanitarian crisis.'

California state senator who pushed vaccine mandate now seeks to CRIMINALIZE “fake news” about medicine, politics and government

In the latest stunning assault on the freedom to think, California state senator Richard Pan — known as the “Mercury Joker” super villain for pushing mandatory vaccines into law via SB 277 — now wants to criminalize all bloggers and independent journalists who dare question the official narratives on vaccines, medicine, politics and government.

The quest for absolute authoritarian control never seems to end with these left-wing zealots. And California looks more and more like North Korea with each new law. (Is Richard Pan the long-lost cousin of Kim Jong-Un?)

Ever seeking to limit public debate, crush independent journalism and control all speech, Richard Pan has a new thought control bill entitled, “SB1424 Internet: social media: false information: strategic plan.” While the title seems to target social media websites, the language of the bill clearly applies the law to all blogs, news websites, video sites and podcasts. From the proposed law itself:

Exclusive: Massive Ancient Drawings Found in Peruvian Desert

If you live in California, you have likely been exposed to a highly contagious parasitic infection called Valley Fever. Reported cases of the disease have increased dramatically from just 719 back in the early 1990s, to over 5,300 in 2016. And experts believe that nine out of 10 cases go unreported.

“That’s just the tip of the iceberg,” warned Antje Lauer, a professor of microbiology at California State University (CSU), who is an expert on Valley Fever. “This is a very misdiagnosed and underdiagnosed disease. The actual number of cases is likely 10 times as high.”

On The Threshold of War — Paul Craig Roberts

On The Threshold of War

“The Russian view is simple: the West is ruled by a gang of thugs supported by an infinitely lying and hypocritical media while the general public in the West has been hopelessly zombified.” — The Saker

There are reports, the validity of which I cannot confirm at this time, that the entirety of the Russian military has been put on high alert, not merely the Russian forces in Syria. See for example: http://defence-blog.com/news/russia-suddenly-puts-troops-alert.html
