Taxpayers at risk as Obamacare crumbles

The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses. Even the liberal Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill is warning of a possible “Obamacare meltdown” this fall.

Drug Sales On The Dark Web Have Tripled Since The Feds Shut Down Silk Road

By John Vibes

This week, it was reported that drug sales on the dark web have tripled since the infamous Silk Road was shut down in 2013.

Within hours of the Silk Road takedown, there were several competitors that were already on the dark web who were ready to move in on the newly available business.

MICROSOFT INADVERTENTLY DEMONSTRATES THE INTRINSIC SECURITY PROBLEM OF INCLUDING A UNIVERSAL BACKDOOR IN ITS SOFTWARE BY ACCIDENTALLY LEAKING ITS "GOLDEN KEY"

Microsoft has inadvertently demonstrated the intrinsic security problem of including a universal backdoor in its software after it accidentally leaked its so-called "golden key"—which allows users to unlock any device that's supposedly protected by Secure Boot, such as phones and tablets.

The key basically allows anyone to bypass the provisions Microsoft has put in place ostensibly to prevent malicious versions of Windows from being installed, on any device running Windows 8.1 and upwards with Secure Boot enabled.

And while this means that enterprising users will be able to install any operating system—Linux, for instance—on their Windows tablet, it also allows bad actors with physical access to a machine to install bootkits and rootkits at deep levels. Worse, according to the security researchers who found the keys, this is a decision Microsoft may be unable to reverse.

350,000 People Just Asked the Governor to Stop Using Oil Wastewater on California Crops

By Christina Sarich

350,000 people just asked California’s governor to halt the dangerous practice of irrigating crops with oil-contaminated wastewater from Chevron.

A petition representing more than a quarter million Californians was delivered by activists who gathered outside the state capitol this past week to urge Governor Jerry Brown to stop Chevron and California Resources Corporation from dumping oil wastewater on over 90,000 acres in the Cawelo Irrigation District and the North Kern Water Management District, among others, slated to be irrigated with petro-water. More than 100 farms are affected by the practice...

Negative Rates for the People Arrive as German Bank Gives In

When the European Central Bank introduced a negative interest rate on lenders’ deposits two years ago, few thought things would ever go this far.
This week, a German cooperative savings bank in the Bavarian village of Gmund am Tegernsee -- population 5,767 -- said it’ll start charging retail customers to hold their cash. From September, for savings in excess of 100,000 euros ($111,710), the community’s Raiffeisen bank will take back 0.4 percent. That’s a direct pass through of the current level of the ECB’s negative deposit rate.
“With our business clients there’s been a negative rate for quite some time, so why should it be any different for private individuals with big balances?,” Josef Paul, a board member of the bank, said by phone on Thursday. “As it looks today, charges on deposits won’t be extended to customers with lower amounts” than 100,000 euros, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may well be the proverbial financial "canary in the coal mine; look to see other banks, both inside, and outside of Germany, start to adopt this trend.

And no wonder banks now want to do away with cash; because with these negative rates, customers are going to look for other places than banks to stash their cash.

The purpose of a savings account USED to be to see a little extra added to that account on a monthly basis; now, that is no longer the case.

EU’s Smallest Nation is Its First to Completely Ban Monsanto’s Toxic Glyphosate

Waking Times

The European Union’s smallest member country, Malta, has officially began the process of completely banning Monsanto’s toxic glyphosate from the 122 square mile island nation in the Mediterranean Sea. Labeled a ‘probable carcinogenic’ by the World Health Organization, controversy over the use of glyphosate, a primary ingredient in the popular gardening product RoundUp, is a globally contentious issue, yet very few nation states have sided with precautionary reasoning when considering the continued use of this toxic herbicide and crop desiccant.

Now it's done in Florida?!

Doctors Name Monsanto’s Larvicide As Cause of Brazilian Microcephaly Outbreak.
A report from the Argentine doctors’ organisation, Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, challenges the theory that the Zika virus epidemic in Brazil is the cause of the increase in the birth defect microcephaly among newborns.

The increase in this birth defect, in which the baby is born with an abnormally small head and often has brain damage, was quickly linked to the Zika virus by the Brazilian Ministry of Health. However, according to the Physicians in the Crop-Sprayed Towns, the Ministry failed to recognise that in the area where most sick people live, a chemical larvicide that produces malformations in mosquitoes was introduced into the drinking water supply in 2014. This poison, Pyriproxyfen, is used in a State-controlled programme aimed at eradicating disease-carrying mosquitoes.

UNSAFE LEVELS OF TOXIC CHEMICALS FOUND IN DRINKING WATER FOR SIX MILLION AMERICANS

Levels of a widely used class of industrial chemicals linked with cancer and other health problems — polyfluoroalkyl and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) — exceed federally recommended safety levels in public drinking water supplies for six million people in the U.S., according to a new study led by researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).
The study will be published August 9, 2016 in Environmental Science & Technology Letters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Might as well face the reality that local and Federal officials don't care about the quality of your drinking water.

There are several, rather inexpensive, water testing kits that are readily available for consumers.

It is better for you to know what is in your drinking water, then develop a plan of action if your water is contaminated, particularly if you have kids.

SOCIAL SECURITY’S LOOMING $32 TRILLION SHORTFALL (THAT’S RIGHT 32 TRILLION)

But hey, who cares? I mean I’ll be dead by the time Social Security implodes. I paid into it. I want my money. That most people take out far more in Social Security than they put in in a lifetime means nothing to me. I was promised Social Security and darn it I am going to get my check.

The grand kids can figure it out.

(From CNBC)

“We’re not broke in 20 years to 30 years, we’re broke now,” Kotlikoff said. “All the bills have been kept off the books by Congress and presidential administrations for six decades.”

The $6.3 trillion increase in the infinite horizon projection shows that Social Security Administration actuaries are more pessimistic about economic and wage growth, Kotlikoff said.

Of course one of the big problems here is that the politicians will never cut Social Security – it’s too important a tool for manipulating voters – but they think they can increasingly tax it. And that is the soft case the attached article makes.

Tobacco is Legal, but Cannabis Actually Kills and Prevents Lung Cancer

Obama’s GMO embarrassment: Why the new labeling bill just signed into law is a sham

It is known as the DARK Act — Denying Americans the Right to Know. It was signed by President Obama last week in the afterglow of the Democratic National Convention, without fanfare or major media coverage. The bill’s moniker is apt. With a few strokes of his pen Obama scratched out the laws of Vermont, Connecticut and Maine that required the labeling of genetically engineered foods.

He also nullified the GE seed labeling laws in Vermont and Virginia that allowed farmers to choose what seeds they wanted to buy and plant. And for good measure he preempted Alaska’s law requiring the labeling of any GE fish or fish product, passed to protect the state’s vital fisheries from contamination by recently approved genetically engineered salmon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, this legislation is a bloody sham; because at the end of the day, Obama is no less "owned" by Monsanto and the other GMO-creating companies than are prominent Republicans.

US State Dept employee confirms GMO golden rice is Trojan Horse crop

Companies that own patents on golden rice would be willing to make golden rice available at no cost if the countries involved would be willing to adopt US patent regimens to protect other GMO crops

EXCERPT: A couple of years ago we met with an employee of the US State Department who sat down to talk to us about the benefits of GMO crops for farmers and consumers in the Global South. We asked about whether or not farmers would have to pay a technology fee and purchase the Golden Rice seed each year. He said the companies that own the patents would be willing to make the Golden Rice and virus-resistant cassava available at no cost if the countries involved would be willing to adopt US patent regimens to protect other GMO crops. From a policy perspective, that raises the question of whether these crops are being developed as a humanitarian gesture or a means to ensure the profits of the companies who hold the patents.

The GMO Debate: One student’s experience of pro-GMO propaganda at Cornell University

I came back to Cornell a changed person, with a drastically different perspective. I was in for quite a shock, however: I sat in on a course entitled “The GMO Debate”. I was expecting members of an intellectual community coming together, with proponents and critics of GMO food each giving the best verified evidence they had to support their cause. Given all that I had learned about GMO agriculture, I was excited to participate for the “GMO skeptic” side.

The GMO Debate course, which ran in the fall of 2015, was a blatant display of unscientific propaganda in an academic setting. There were a total of 4 active professors in the course, and several guest speakers. They took turns each session defending industrial agriculture and biotechnology with exactly zero critical examination of GMOs. In spite of the course’s name, there was a complete lack of actual “debate”. Here are some of the more memorable claims I heard that fall semester:

* GMO food is necessary to feed the world
* there is no instance of harm from agricultural GMOs
* glyphosate, the main ingredient in Roundup, is safer than coffee and table salt

F-35 targeting system laser will be 'almost impossible' to use in UK

US restrictions on the F-35 fighter jet's targeting system will make it “almost impossible” for training to be carried out in the UK, the Ministry of Defence fears – but its press office insists the constraints are normal.

The F-35's electro-optical targeting system (EOTS) includes a target designator laser and a laser rangefinder.

According to the Defence Ranges Safety Committee, the F-35 has only been cleared to use the designator laser “in the US under very tight controls”.

These include a ban on any optic devices being within 33km of the aircraft when the designator is switched on, and no observers being allowed within 9km of an F-35 operating its designator laser.

“If these restrictions stand, then training in the UK will be almost impossible,” an MoD civil servant wrote.

MYSTERY GMO WHEAT FOUND GROWING IN WASHINGTON STATE COULD AFFECT FOREIGN TRADE WITH U.S.

Genetically modified wheat not approved for sale or commercial production in the United States has been found growing in a field in Washington state, agriculture officials said Friday, posing a possible risk to trade with countries concerned about engineered food. The Food and Drug Administration says genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, are safe and little scientific concern exists about the safety of those on the market. But critics say not enough is known about their risks, and they want GMOs labeled so people know what's in their food. On Friday, President Barack Obama signed into law a bill that will require labeling of genetically modified ingredients for the first time. The legislation passed by Congress two weeks ago will require most food packages to carry a text label, a symbol or an electronic code readable by smartphone that indicates whether the food contains genetically modified organisms, or GMOs.

New Study Shows Common Insecticide Destroys Fertility In Bees

By Derrick Broze

A new study provides further evidence that a commonly used insecticide is causing harm to the honey bee population, specifically the male drone honey bees.

Researchers at Switzerland’s University of Bern found that the bees who ate pollen treated with neonicotinoids produced 39 percent less live sperm than the bees who did not eat the treated pollen...

In it, she details Monsanto's history as an American "war horse," which began with its involvement in the Manhattan Project and the creation of the atomic bomb. Monsanto's contributions to the U.S. war machine continued during the Vietnam War, when the company became a leading producer of Agent Orange.

These war contributions appear to have cemented a long-lasting and loyal relationship between the U.S. government and Monsanto that continues to this day, to the detriment of the American people.

Private Prisons Can Sue States For Not Having Enough Prisoners

Waking Times Media

In America, most prisons are owned by private corporations. Private corporations like to make money. Lots of money. Empty prison beds do not make money, so many states are being urged into contracts with the prisons, pledging to keep the prison anywhere from 70% to 97% full, at all times. So where does the average person come in?

L Train Will Shut Down Between Manhattan and Brooklyn in ’19 for 18 Months

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority plans to close a tunnel that carries the L train, one of New York City’s most crowded subway lines, creating what officials acknowledge will be among the largest disruptions in the transit system’s history.

The decision, which officials announced on Monday, has been awaited for months by riders concerned about the tunnel’s fate. Now, they have their answer: The tunnel, which runs under the East River between Manhattan and Brooklyn, will be shut entirely for a year and a half, starting in January 2019, to repair serious damage caused by Hurricane Sandy.

The move promises to upend the commutes of tens of thousands of people along the popular line who will have to find other ways into and out of Manhattan.

Given that the deals are not primarily about trade, and that what freedom they entail accrues to corporations and not people, you could say the very use of the term “free trade” implies a bias, against clarity if nothing else.

If you enter an elevator in Toronto, have food and water with you (and maybe somethingt to pee in)

Trapped in a stuck elevator? The problem is worsening in Canada, experts warn
Canada, especially Toronto, is already plunging to an elevator crisis, experts say, with a large number of elevators in need of repairs, replacement.

Ben McIntyre, business manager for Local 50 of the International Union of Elevator Constructors in Ajax, Ont., said some landlords are simply unable or unwilling to spend the needed money. But the real problem, he said, is that routine maintenance has gone by the wayside as overloaded technicians attend to only the most pressing problems.

McIntyre also complains about the dominance of the few big players in the tight-knit industry.

“They really rule it with a tight fist and it’s all about bottom lines more than it is about customer satisfaction or for the riding public,” McIntyre said. “If they can cut a corner to make their bottom line look better ... they will. It’s only when an accident happens or something happens, then they start pointing fingers.”

BEX TRASH ALERT! Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which “Donald Trump” accidentally contracts HIV.

“The Brothers Grimsby“ opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you’re learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy.

Putin To Ban Pokemon GO From Russia Due To Links To CIA

Vladimir Putin is set to ban Pokemon GO from Russia after an internal Kremlin investigation revealed the viral augmented reality smartphone game has direct links to the CIA and wider intelligence community and is being used to secretly gather data on a colossal scale. Young people are being tricked into giving up their privacy to these intelligence agencies, according to Kremlin sources, and while playing the game they act as unwitting intelligence gatherers for the CIA. The game has an extensive list of intrusive tracking permissions, and it is these ‘fine print clauses’ that raised eyebrows in the Kremlin and sparked the ongoing investigation.

New York federal judge to DEA: If you want to use a stingray you’re going to need a warrant for that

This ruling—along with a landmark Second Circuit Court of Appeals opinion handed down this week holding that US warrants do not extend overseas—is a bright spot in what’s otherwise been a bleak series of court decisions on privacy in the digital age.

Des Moines Register: Is it GMO? "Smart labels" aren't enough

And we should have the right to know when a food product contains genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, especially as they carry greater and greater residues of this probable cancer causing chemical. Some states such as Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have voted to mandate this labeling. But Congress is trying to preempt these states from giving their citizens what they have asked for.

The latest ploy is so-called “smart labels.” This is the most recent attempt by big agribusiness, the giant food processors and members of Congress who submit to their lobbying pressure to keep customers in the dark about what’s in our food. Instead of a simple declaration in plain language on the product, a smart label will require scanning each item with a smart phone. Besides the unbelievable time and inconvenience involved, many Americans don’t have smart phones and can’t afford them. More than half of rural Americans don’t have smart phones, let alone the network coverage required to access the information.

We are in the middle of an admitted global drone arms race in which there are mass civilian casualties occurring under a specious U.S. legal framework that has thus far not even excluded its own citizens from being targeted for assassination. There is also a host of ground- and sea-based systems that are equally lethal and continue to be tested in massive joint military exercises.

Additionally, younger age at the time of the adverse reaction is associated with a higher risk of hospitalization or death.

At one time, cannabis was one of the world’s most important crops. There have been no recorded deaths from cannabis overdose in the US, compared to about 30,000 deaths annually from alcohol abuse (not counting auto accidents), and 100,000 deaths annually from prescription drugs taken as directed. Yet cannabis remains a Schedule I controlled substance (“a deadly dangerous drug with no medical use and high potential for abuse”), illegal to be sold or grown in the US.

Representatives of NGOs – including Greenpeace, the subject of the laureates’ attack – who tried to attend the press conference about the letter were astonished to find their way blocked by none other than Jay Byrne, Monsanto’s notorious former communications director and president of the PR company V-Fluence, which is known to work for Monsanto. He is on record as having identified Greenpeace as a target for attack as far back as 2010.
