FDA declared veggies ‘unapproved drugs’ after NYC allowed doctors to prescribe fresh fruit and vegetables as treatment for obesity

“This program makes New York City the largest U.S. city to officially acknowledge that fruits and vegetables have a role to play in preventing chronic degenerative disease — an idea that the FDA insists is delusional. According to the FDA, there is no such thing as any fruit, vegetable, supplement or superfood that has any ability whatsoever to prevent, treat or cure any disease.

“. . . according to the FDA, the mere ‘prescribing’ of a food as something to prevent obesity automatically transforms that food into a ‘drug.’ Under current FDA regulations, then, NYC is guilty of promoting ‘unapproved drugs’ which are really just fruits and vegetables. But that’s how FDA logic works.”

Muzzled!

SAN GABRIEL, Calif.—Only two athletes in history have won medals in six consecutive Olympic Games.

Only two.

The first athlete is Armin Zöggeler, a carabiniere from the Tyrolean Alps who has won two gold medals, one silver medal, and three bronzes during the 1994 through 2014 Winter Games.

The other six-in-six Olympian is a woman from Southern California.

So even though we intuitively understand that living in an apocalyptic hellscape would be an absolute horror show, in the back of our minds we kinda wish that we had an excuse to blow off all of our modern responsibilities.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson just sold out to Big Pharma... says children should be forcibly injected with mercury at gunpoint... claims government 'science' overrides medical freedom

Wow, the 2016 Presidential race is getting more bizarre by the day, it seems, and the latest example of people wandering off into la la land is found in libertarian party candidate Gary Johnson. He just announced that whatever chemicals and viral strains the corrupt, scientifically incompetent federal government decides should be injected into your children must be obediently accepted by parents or they should face arrest, imprisonment or gunpoint enforcement.

Gary Johnson, in other words, has just had official immunization science "splained" to him and has now surrendered the entire idea of liberty upon which the libertarian party was founded. Suddenly, your human rights -- medical choice rights -- are no longer considered inalienable by Gary Johnson, who believes that people should be forced against their will to be injected with toxic substances linked to comas, seizures, autism, cancer, neurological disorders, paralyzation and even death.

Monsanto unleashes new GMO crops that requires use of toxic, unapproved herbicide

These weed killers are specially formulated to pair with genetically modified seeds made to be resistant and unaffected by them. However, as the weeds have gotten stronger and more resilient, Monstanto has had to make its herbicide products stronger as well, adding a chemical called dicamba.

Glyphosate and the weed killer products that contain it have faced quite a bit of controversy lately, and with good reason. The cancer research arm of the World Health Organization has linked the compound glyphosate with cancer in humans and other living beings. Dicamba is largely untested and not yet approved for use in the United States.

Society News Doctors Sue Obama Administration for Forcing Them to Perform Gender Transition Procedures

Five states and a group of religiously-affiliated hospitals and physicians are suing the Obama administration over a federal mandate that forces doctors to perform gender transition procedures on adults and children against their medical judgment.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in a Texas federal court, attempts to roll back a rule imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services in May that expanded the interpretation of “sex” under the Affordable Care Act to include “gender identity.”

In doing so, the Obama administration added transgender people to the list of protected classes under the Affordable Care Act, which states that individuals can’t be denied certain federally-funded health benefits because of their “race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.”

The move was part of a broader push by President Barack Obama to further transgender rights in the U.S.

Dry Planet: NASA Claims No Liquid Water on Mars

Dark gullies on Mars earlier believed by NASA to be an indicator of the presence of liquid water on the Red Planet appear to contain as much moisture as the driest of Earth’s deserts -- in other words, almost none, according to new research based on observations by the agency’s Mars Odyssey mission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Liquid water was photographed on the surface of Mars by the rover Opportunity back in 2004.

I'll tell you why NASA keeps whipping back on forth on the issue of water (and life) on Mars. It's to keep the funding flowing! Once NASA says definitively that there is water (or life) on Mars, funding (other than to promote human-caused global warming) will be slashed.

Company Gouging Price Of EpiPens Is A Clinton Foundation Donor And Partner

The Clinton Foundation partnered with Mylan at a time when it was raising prices on the EpiPen, which had been distributed by Merck.

Ironically, the company partnered in 2009 with the Clinton Foundation to provide a lower-cost alternative for four HIV drugs. Clinton Foundation records show that Mylan has donated between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Foundation. It is not clear when the donation was made, but it likely corresponded with the 2009 partnership.

EpiPen maker’s stock value plunges nearly $3 billion as investors panic

Mylan Pharmaceuticals — the company that makes the EpiPen rescue device — has watched its stock value plummet over the last five days as panicky investors jump ship.

According to U.S. Uncut, outrage over Mylan’s decision to jack up the price of the EpiPen has spooked shareholders, whose departures have reduced the value of Mylan stock by 12.4 percent. On August 19, Mylan stocks went from $49.20 per share to $43.11 on August 24, a net loss of nearly $3 billion for the company.

The EpiPen is a popular rescue device for food allergy sufferers who run the risk of anaphylaxis — a potentially lethal reaction to allergen exposure. The device rapidly delivers a dose of epinephrine to the system, which for severe allergy sufferers can mean the difference between life and death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Couldn't happen to a more deserving pharmaceutical company!

To put a life-saving device out of the financial reach of those who desperately need it by jacking up the price astronomically is just completely, morally wrong.

THERE IS A MAINSTREAM MEDIA CONSPIRACY TO HIDE HILLARY CLINTON’S RAPIDLY FAILING HEALTH

Over the past couple of weeks this has become a major issue, and the mainstream media is actively conspiring with the Clinton campaign in a desperate attempt to cover up the truth. For example, the Washington Post, which has essentially become a mouthpiece for the Clinton campaign at this point, has been publishing an article “debunking” claims about Clinton’s health almost every day recently. One of their headlines that really caught my attention was “Don’t believe everything you read about Hillary Clinton’s health on Google“. By the way, there were three Hillary Clinton campaign ads on that one page alone. But CNN took things to an entirely new level this week when it published an article entitled “Clinton’s health is fine, but what about Trump?” I was so flabbergasted by that headline that my wife came into my office to see what all of the commotion was about. No, Hillary Clinton’s health is not “fine”, and we will get to that later in this article.

The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) found that the majority of parents have no idea what their children are doing online. A study released on Tuesday claims that 60 percent of teenagers with social media accounts made them without their parents’ permission. However, only 28 percent of parents believed their children would ever do such a thing.

Women Nearly 3 Times Likely To Get Breast Cancer With Common Hormone Replacement Therapies

Scientists at the Institute of Cancer Research in London say the risks of taking the pills have been underestimated for years – and are actually 60 percent higher than thought.

BU researcher creates images from single photons

“It’s natural to think of light intensity as a continuous quantity, but when you get down to very small amounts of light, then the underlying quantum nature of light becomes significant,” says Vivek Goyal, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Boston University’s College of Engineering. “When you use the right kind of mathematical modeling for the detection of individual photons, you can make the leap to forming images of useful quality from extremely small amounts of detected light.”

Goyal’s study, “Photon-Efficient Imaging with a Single-Photon Camera,” was a collaboration with researchers at MIT and Politecnico di Milano. Funded by the National Science Foundation, it combined new image formation algorithms with the use of a single-photon camera to produce images from about one photon per pixel.

Questioning Hillary’s Health is Not Conspiracy Theory

What’s so amusing about the tactics of these self-important pundits is their willingness to do the exact same thing they demonize “fringe bloggers” of doing: playing doctor. Most of those rushing out to confidently ensure the public that everything is just fine and dandy with Hillary Clinton’s health lack any medical credentials. They’re just journalists and pundits who have decided Hillary is fine based on a two-page letter from internist Dr. Lisa Bardack. Does writing for the Washington Post or CNN make them the authority on Hillary Clinton’s health? Of course not. -- To highlight just how unquestioning and extremely biased much of the mainstream media really is, let’s take a look at what comes up as the top story when I search “Hillary health debunked.”

The Siberian plague

In Russia's Far North, in the Yamalo-Nenets region, authorities have been fighting an outbreak of the Siberian plague, which is called anthrax in the West. More than 2,000 reindeer have died, and 90 local tribe members have been hospitalized, of which 53 are children. In the beginning of August, a 12-year old boy died in hospital. "Children were infected as a reuslt of traditional customs," said Anna Popova, head of Russia's public health watchdog, Rospotrebnadzor. Some families in Yamalo-Nenets still drink deer blood and eat raw meat. In accordance with tradition, children remove the reindeer veins with their teeth. "They make threads out of reindeer blood vessels," Popova explained. She added that it was impossible to avoid infection in such a situation. Private property, such as teepees, sleighs, clothes, and household items were burned in order to contain the infection. A massive vaccination campaign is underway in the region for both people and animals.

ISS orbit raised by 2,3 km for docking with new Soyuz MS ship

According to the Mission Control, the maneuver was needed to create the ballistic conditions for the coming landing of the Souyz TMA-20M manned spacecraft and the following launch of the Soyuz MS-02 ship. The ISS orbital altitude drops gradually over time due to the Earth's gravitational pull and atmospheric drag. Periodic re-boosts adjust the ISS orbit. The landing of the Soyuz TMA-20M spacecraft, the last in this series, is planned for September 7. The ship will return to Earth Russian cosmonauts Alexei Ovchinin and Oleg Skripochka, as well as NASA astronaut Jeffrey N. Williams.

This Scientist DIED Way Early After Inventing This Microwave Weapon

New at Informed Dissent:

We stumbled upon the research of Dr. Leo J. Baranski, then working for North American Aviation, Inc. (a precursor to Boeing) on a microwave device targeting ATP, key to cellular energy in the body, with "resonant frequencies." Dr. Baranski found in animal studies that the depending upon the angle, this technology had the potential capability of doubling one's lifespan, or alternately, of killing an entire population.

Baranski's work with resonant frequencies and Unified Field Theory was cut short – and virtually memory holed. Baranski died a suspicious and untimely cancer death in 1971 at age 45.

What does Occupy Wall Street have to do with Greek immigration policies? But the fact is that Soros-backed projects share basic common attributes.

FLINT 2.0? INDIANA RESIDENTS SUDDENLY EVICTED AFTER DECADES OF LEAD, ARSENIC CONTAMINATION

After decades of nearby industrial pollution, residents of the West Calumet Housing Complex in East Chicago, Indiana, were abruptly warned that they must vacate their homes for demolition given hazardous levels of lead and arsenic in the soil.

More than 1,000 residents of the 346-unit public housing complex were told last month by the city of East Chicago that they must find new housing, as the city planned to demolish all dwellings in the complex. Just days before, the city said residents would only have to temporarily relocate based on a US Environmental Protection Agency finding that soil around the complex contained toxic levels of lead and arsenic since at least 2014. Plans to remove the soil dated back to 2012.

"Somebody dropped the ball somewhere," state Sen. Lonnie Randolph of East Chicago told the Associated Press of shock among residents as warnings of toxicity rapidly escalated. "Maybe it was intentional, or maybe by mistake. Maybe it was negligence."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All city and county officials who allowed this toxic build-up in this area to happen, and to linger, should be tried, convicted, and serve hard time, as a lesson for any city or country official in this country even thinking about ignoring water quality.

Everyone who lived in the affected area should be tested for lead poisoning, and immediately. Through various treatments, you can get rid of lead in the system, but the damage done to young children is irreversible.

Fayez al-Hindi has devised a homemade water desalinization setup that is helping to solve the water crisis, though, as some Gaza residents face running out of water in mere months. It runs on solar power and a little ingenuity.

Three years of jets bombing the Gaza strip have left the territory’s water infrastructure extremely unstable. Both reservoirs above ground and below have been damaged, so even when it rains, the water is often contaminated, and made unfit to drink. More than $34 million dollars’ worth of damage has been done to Gaza’s water infrastructure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WOW! Talk about ingenuity!! Bravo to this guy for having come up with a simple, elegant solution for creating clean water.

Big Biotech Looks to Make Third World Into West’s Genetically Modified Bread Basket

By Chris “Kikila” Perrin

GMOs (or Genetically Modified Organisms) — perhaps one of the sacred cow topics of anti-neoliberal, anti-globalization activist discourse, they are as confusingly scientific as vaccines and carry with them just as fervent criticism and defense.

For the most part, some of the suggested benefits of GMOs have fallen flat: Corporate claims that genetically modified crops provide an easy solution to the problem of world hunger have proven to be unsubstantiated, and the only positive results that GM crops tend to produce directly are those related to the wealth/poverty gap. Problematically, the biotech corporations that have created GM crops find refuge in the Global South — or so-called Third World — where corrupt governments appear happy to receive international money in exchange for turning their fields and populations into laboratories...

DRUG AND DEVICE MAKERS PAY THOUSANDS OF DOCS WITH DISCIPLINARY RECORDS

Pharmaceutical and medical device companies are continuing to pay doctors as promotional speakers and expert advisers even after they’ve been disciplined for serious misconduct, according to an analysis by ProPublica.

One such company is medical device maker Stryker Corp.

In June 2015, New York’s Board for Professional Medical Conduct accused orthopedic surgeon Alexios Apazidis of improperly prescribing pain medications to 28 of his patients. The board fined him $50,000 and placed him on three years’ probation, requiring that a monitor keep an eye on his practice.

Despite this, Stryker paid Apazidis more than $14,000 in consulting fees, plus travel expenses, in the last half of 2015.

Stryker also paid another orthopedic surgeon, Mohammad Diab of San Francisco, more than $16,000 for consulting and travel, even though California’s medical board had disciplined him for having a two-year-long inappropriate sexual relationship with a patient, whose two children he also treated. He was suspended from practice for 60 days, required to seek psychological treatment and given seven years’ probation. He is still required to have a third party present while seeing female patients.

Neither Apazidis or Diab returned emails or calls seeking comment.

Air bubbles trapped in rock 800 MILLION years ago reveal oxygen levels spiked on Earth earlier than thought

It may not smell so fresh, but ancient air trapped in rock salt millions of years ago is revealing what prehistoric Earth’s atmosphere was like.

Researchers believe that pockets of air trapped inside crystals of the humble mineral as they formed may provide new insight into exactly when the conditions came about for life to flourish on the planet.

They claim that the approach provides the first direct measurements of the ancient atmosphere and suggests the oxygen boost which led to an explosion of life in the Cambrian period may have occurred far earlier than previously thought.

The film Vaxxed could be outlawed in California, if this bill passes

The shocking film Vaxxed (trailer) is drawing audiences all over the country. It details the confessions of a CDC researcher, William Thompson, who states that he and his colleagues buried data in a key study on the MMR vaccine.

In the study, the vaccine was given a free pass, with assurances that it didn’t increase the risk of autism in children—when, in fact, the data showed it did increase that risk.

***The key moments in Vaxxed are audio recordings of CDC researcher Thompson confessing his sins.

But wait. Now we have a bill, AB 1671, up before the California legislature. If it passes, it could make it a crime to screen Vaxxed or even write an article about it.

Those recordings of Thompson could be labeled “undercover,” and “illegal,” and therefore make them the target of AB 1671.

Glyphosate causing cancer, claims mass lawsuits

Scott Adams: Is It My Imagination, or Is Hillary Nowhere to Be Seen?

Scott Adams began this Periscope broadcast by asking, “Is it my imagination, or is Hillary nowhere to be seen?” Then, he asked for a [virtual] show of hands from the Periscope participants who too feel that Trump seems to be running unopposed as Scott has been predicting since last year. There were many responses in agreement. Were there too many?

This is the only time that the Periscope comments do not show in the playback. Was that glitch?

In this broadcast, Scott talks about:

- Trump possibly temporarily declaring U.S. post offices as Mexican embassies and offering illegal Mexican immigrants the opportunity to officially apply to reenter the country legally (or for deportation)

- Because of the internet, Trump will be the first direct-democracy president

- Hillary Clinton’s health

- Media jumping the shark over Trump’s regret speech

- The public’s fear of answering polls honestly

The M1 Abrams MBT is by far the most overrated tank of all time.

It's the world's most expensive and cumbersome tank, it costs more than any of it's contemporaries, and yet it's compat results fall well short of it's predecessors and contemporaries.

Yet, it's the most popular tank ever built.

This series will reveal the truth behind one of the worst tanks ever built. Namely, what it can and can't do (there's a LOT more of the latter), how and why it became what it is, how it compares to the other tanks out there, and more.

OFFICIALS CHARGED WITH POISONING FLINT WATER MAY AVOID PROSECUTION BECAUSE OF LEGAL LOOPHOLE

The prosecution of current and former state of Michigan employees for their role in Flint’s lead-contaminated water crisis likely will face an early test over whether one of the most serious charges can even be levied against the middle- and lower-level government officials.
All eight workers charged so far, five from the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and three with the Department of Health and Human Services, face a misconduct in office charge — a felony that can carry a five-year prison term. The cases are in the early stages of prosecution.

But there is no statute clearly defining official misconduct. Rather, it is a common law offense based on judicial decisions and a doctrine whose origins trace back centuries to England.

The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled that misconduct in office applies only to “public officers,” not all government workers.

ONE OF THE WORST PHARMACEUTICAL DISASTERS IN HISTORY IS STILL RELEVANT TODAY

One of the worst drug disasters in history is unfolding right before our eyes.

DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen that was given to pregnant women from 1940 through the early 1970s. DES was touted as a “wonder drug” that would prevent miscarriage and morning sickness. It was only after millions of women and fetuses were exposed to DES that it was recognized that DES was causing deadly cancers in both the women who took it and the children exposed to it in-utero. According to The Wonder Drug Movie, a documentary about DES:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember: when a doctor is propagandized that something is great for their patients, and most probably will cause no irrevocable harm, they are brainwashed into believing it, because of their background, and only know about that drug from the circulars handed to them by very attractive pharmaceutical representatives.

Pharmaceutical companies are generally headed by people whose conscience has been surgically removed, and where the watchwords are "Profits Uber Alles."

So when you see an advert on TV about some product, but then hear the horrific potential side effects, usually at the end of the commercial, ask yourself; where will this product be in 20 years?!?

Ryan Bundy is being tortured. Multnomah County jail is notorious for dead and injured inmates!

Ryan Bundy is in Solitary Confinement until after his trial. This means that he will have limited opportunities to prepare for defending his freedom. How did this happen?

The FBI agents are already under investigation for lying during that incident. They claimed that they did not fire their weapons. However, it has been shown that there were two bullet casings that were illegally removed from the scene. All of OSP’s shots have been accounted for, therefore the shots seem to have come from the FBI.

Bundy has maintained that he does not give permission to State or Federal authorities to remove the evidence from his arm. He has said that he is willing to have it removed, however, he has certain conditions under which he will agree, including having an independent forensic analysis done. The Federal authorities refuse these terms.

WHO MANUAL DIRECTING "AUTHORITIES" ON HOW TO RESPOND TO VACCINE DENIERS IN PUBLIC

The endlessly increasing vaccine push on the public, at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, can be looked at as nothing more than a psychological operation (PSYOP). From the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) comes the 2016 "Best Practice Guidance 1st Edition: How to Respond to Vocal Vaccine Deniers in Public". From this guide parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP. The WHO's guiding document opens on page one with the following statement:

"This guidance document provides basic broad principles for a spokesperson of any health authority on how to respond to vocal vaccine deniers.The suggestions are based on psychological research on persuasion, on research in public health, communication studies and on WHO risk
communication guidelines."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no science denier, or anti-vaxxer; having said that, however, I have found some very effective ways of enhancing my wellness which do not involve conventional medical treatment.

Trust me; I would never be a Christian Scientist with appendicitis; but understanding something about nutrition and wellness has kept me in reasonably good shape, at 67, which is a real gift at this age.

I would encourage all of our readers to do the due dilligence, and educate themselves about the power of nutrition to augment health.

When I have friends locally who have just had a really lousy health diagnosis, I encourage them to have a nutritional consult at a medical center under 7th-Day Adventist management.

As ovolacto-vegetarians, these people have health statistics that are, generally, off the chart, in terms of great health outcomes. They have learned to use food as a weapon against disease, and they have my complete and utter respect for having done so.

PORTLAND BANS ANTI-CLIMATE CHANGE MATERIALS IN SCHOOLS

The Portland Public School Board voted earlier this year to ban any classroom materials, including textbooks and other material purchased by the district, that cast doubt on the existence of climate change.

This new rule was passed unanimously by the board’s members, who agreed with testimony from Bill Bigelow, a former Portland teacher, when he said,

“We don’t want kids in Portland learning material courtesy of the fossil fuel industry.”

Materials that present climate change as a theory rather than as a fact will no longer be used and, going forward, they will not be purchased by the district for students. Additionally, materials must make it clear that human activity is responsible for the rapid climate change occurring on our planet. The resolution also calls for the superintendent and staff to develop an education plan for teaching students about climate justice.

A student of Lincoln High School, Gaby Lemieux, said in testimony at the hearing,

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I understand that we have to mandate the companies which produce fossil fuel to become as environmentally friendly as possible.

But we cannot stop there; the US government has got to send one little slice of the money it spends on its wars of conquest to control fossil fuel resources to create truly usable alternative energy; the kind of energy which can power a tank, or fly a plane.

That would be both logical and intelligent.

But the people desirous of banning books which don't spew the codswallop of human caused global warming are missing one critical fact; how hot, or how cold, the earth gets is primarily dependent on the sun, and it's cycles.

The predictions for winter 2016-2017 from the Old Farmer's Almanac (which has an annoying reputation for being generally correct), are as follows.

Get ready for a shift from last year! For the winter of 2016–2017, we expect temperatures to be much colder than last winter but still above normal. Winter 2017 will also feature below-normal snowfall overall; the snowy exception is the northern tier of the U.S., which can expect to be blanketed in white. Winter will be colder in much of the eastern two-thirds of the nation. Exceptions will be in a swatch from North Dakota to Maine, which will have below-normal temperatures. Most of the Pacific states will have below-normal temperatures, with above-normal temperatures in the Intermountain region and Desert Southwest. Snowfall will be above normal from southern New England and western New York southward through the Appalachians, but not in northern New England. Snowfall with also be above what’s typical from eastern Minnesota to the UP (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan and southward to St. Louis, Missouri; and from central North Dakota westward to the Pacific. We expect below-normal snowfall in most other places that normally receive snow. Precipitation will be below normal across most of the southern two-thirds of the nation. However, precipitation will be above normal in the North, with the primary exceptions being above-normal rainfall in northern California, southern Oregon, portions of the western Lower Lakes region, and Florida. With rainfall below normal in most of California, the drought there will continue. In Canada, brace for more snow and colder-than-average temperatures throughout most parts of the country. The exceptions to the winter of white will be Manitoba, portions of Saskatchewan, and northern sections across the land. While snowfall will generally be below normal in these areas, temperatures will remain chilly

Frankly, with an 80% success rate in their predictions over the last 225 years, I would more likely place my bets on this than ANYTHING the "Warmistas" have to say.

WHO Manual Directing "Authorities" on How to Respond to Vaccine Deniers in Public

The endlessly increasing vaccine push on the public, at the behest of pharmaceutical companies, can be looked at as nothing more than a psychological operation (PSYOP). From the European Regional Office of the World Health Organization (WHO) comes the 2016 "Best Practice Guidance 1st Edition: How to Respond to Vocal Vaccine Deniers in Public". From this guide parents and communities will understand how to see through the simplistic messaging maneuvers and counter the ongoing public PSYOP.

Zika Virus Can 'Wreak Havoc' On Adult’s Memory – Study

Much of the focus around the mosquito-borne Zika virus has been on pregnant women and brain abnormalities in fetuses, but now scientists think some adult brain cells could be vulnerable too. Infections may even be as destructive as Alzheimer’s disease.

Light Promotes Regeneration and Functional Recovery and Alters the Immune Response After Spinal Cord Injury

Mid-infrared light treatment of spinal cord injury in rats (I dislike animal experiments, but if they have been done, some good might as well come out of them). Axonal growth (Axons are the long threadlike part of a nerve cell along which impulses are conducted from the cell body to other cells) and function were restored in large part. "..returned aspects of function to baseline levels and significantly suppressed immune cell activation.." Thor laser used to have an article which said that if they could have gotten to Christopher Reeve within 24 hours of his injury, they could have had him on his feet again. But it was removed, no doubt due to pressure from Big Pharma / the FDA. Axons, when coated with myelin, a protein, are called "nerve fibers".

"Socrates" Interviews Stuart Hameroff on Consciousness Theory (Singularity Weblog)

Thought-provoking interview on what consciousness is and how it is effected. Hameroff is an anesthesiologist, Professor at Arizona U, and co-author of the Objective Reduction theory of consciousness, which posits that it occurs in microtubules and other structural building blocks of the cytoskeleton (cell skeleton). Interestingly enough, the method of action of inhalation anesthetics is unknown, however, some slime molds have a motile phase, and when treated with such anesthetics, they seem to become anesthetized. Hameroff and colleagues developed instrumentation to stimulate microtubule ordering in the brain using ultrasound (based on studies of stimulation of individual microtubules with nanoamp AC electricity), which produces a brightening of mood and increased cognitive function. The OR model of consciousness is hotly contentious among scientists.

Possibility of Experimental Study of Properties of Time

Dr. Nikolai A. Kozyrev was a renowned astrophysicist, falsely accused of treason in Soviet Russia and imprisoned in the Gulag for 13 years. When he was released, he decided to do something new - a study of the properties of time, using instruments (gyroscopes, pendulums, etc.) on the bench. It was published in January 1967. The US DOD felt it was important enough to translate and publish it. He characterizes time as a field of energy, and ends the paper with a call for continued research so it can be made to do work. Kozyrev and colleagues developed instruments that interact with time. Very provocative and fascinating.
