U.S. National Institutes of Health: Evaluation of the Effect of Radiofrequency Radiation Emitted From Wi-Fi Router and Mobile Phone Simulator on the Antibacterial Susceptibility of Pathogenic Bacteria Listeria monocytogenes and Escherichia coli. Mobile phones and Wi-Fi radiofrequency radiation are among the main sources of the exposure of the general population to radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (RF-EMF). Previous studies have shown that exposure of microorganisms to RF-EMFs can be associated with a wide spectrum of changes ranged from the modified bacterial growth to the alterations of the pattern of antibiotic resistance.

Jury finds Idaho State Police retaliated against crash investigator, awards him $1.5M

After nearly three years of legal wrangling and a nine-day trial, the Ada County jury was unanimous: Idaho State Police retaliated against detective Brandon Eller for concerns he raised over a fatal crash investigation years ago. The jury late Tuesday awarded Brandon Eller $1.5 million in damages and $30,500 in lost wages. After about five hours of deliberation, the jury came back unanimous on all three of Eller’s claims: whistleblower act violations, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and willful and reckless conduct. “Brandon is overwhelmed. It will take awhile to sink in,” his attorney, Erika Birch, told the Statesman on Tuesday evening. “Everyone on his team just is feeling so blessed that finally he was able to tell the whole story and have a jury listen to it and respond in the way that they did.

CAUTION: PHOTOSHOPPED IMAGE

Continuing to ratchet up the rhetoric on North Korea , President Trump disavows assurances from his cabinet that the goal is a diplomatic solution , declaring today that "talking is not the answer" , and claiming The US has been "paying them extortion money for 25 years"
Trump did not elaborate on this claim , and that fueled considerable speculation about what exactly this “extortion money” was>>>

IDAHO STATE POLICE WHISTLEBLOWER AWARDED $1.5 MILLION IN DAMAGES

A jury awarded an Idaho State Police detective more than $1.5 million in damages Tuesday, signaling jurors believed his claim that ISP commanders intentionally tanked his career goals and his reputation after he refused to go along with their explanation of a fatal crash involving a deputy. Brandon Eller said he was targeted after crash reconstructionists were ordered to change a report that concluded Payette County Deputy Scott Sloan was driving recklessly and made an unsafe pass before he slammed into another motorist on Highway 30 in 2011. Barry Johnson of New Plymouth was turning into his own driveway when Sloan – who was responding to a call at speeds of about 115 mph with his lights and siren on --smashed into the side of his Jeep.

Your Government Shutdown Survival Guide

On or around October 2, the US federal government will shut down – again. The actual date could be a bit earlier or later, depending on how the government’s cash flows. Technically, the government should have shut down on March 15, 2017. That was the date that a congressionally approved temporary extension of the debt ceiling expired. So on that date, the amount of debt on the books ($19.808 trillion) became the new debt ceiling. Since then, the Treasury hasn’t been able to issue any more federal debt.

The Next Ginned-Up War of Aggression

When politicians are feeling the heat, they start a war and their popularity goes up even if the war is unnecessary or completely ridiculous. Donald Trump, the presidential candidate who promised that he would not take the nation into another Middle Eastern war, did so when he launched a fifty-nine cruise missile barrage against a Syrian Air Base even before he knew for sure what had happened on the ground. It was totally stupid but proved to be popular, even among talking heads and Congressmen, some of whom described his action as “presidential” in the best sense of the word.

The comfiest shelter in Houston: Selfless mattress shop owner throws open his store to 400 victims of Hurricane Harvey

Multimillionaire pastor Joel Osteen would do well to take a leaf out of Jim McIngvale's book.

Unlike Osteen, who initially refused to open his 17,000-capacity Houston church to the needy, selfless mattress company boss McIngvale has turned his stores into makeshift storm shelters and welcomed all with open arms.

What's more he used his huge furniture removal trucks to transport as many displaced Harvey victims to his door.

Heartwarming pictures - a rarity as Harvey threatens to become America's worst ever natural disaster - show smiling families relaxing on the brand new beds and furniture in McIngvale's shop.

McIngvale, also known as 'Mattress Mack', put a call out on Facebook at the weekend and within hours found himself housing 400 people in his two Gallery Furniture locations.

Infectious diseases and mosquito-borne viruses set to sweep Texas as Hurricane Harvey's dirty floodwater festers

Disastrous floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey have left Houston residents at risk of chronic diseases and infections.

The storm has already forced thousands to be homeless with dirty water soaking through drywall, carpeting, mattresses and furniture across the area.
And the massive cleanup challenge ahead for the cities will pose short and long-term health problems.

The water has likely dredged up sewage, chemicals and waterborne germs that will put anyone in contact at risk for intestinal issues, wound infections and the West Nile virus.

Health and Human Secretary Dr Tom Price declared a public health emergency in the state of Texas on Sunday due to the extreme hazards from the hurricane.

Giant Chemical Plant In Crosby, Texas Warns It Is In "Real Danger" Of Exploding

The plant, which produces explosive organic peroxides and ammonia, was hit by more than 40 inches of rain and has been heavily flooded, running without electricity since Sunday. The plant was closed since Friday but has had a skeleton staff of about a dozen in place. Following the flood surge, the plant's back-up generators also failed.

According to the plant's website description, it "produces methyl mercaptan, ethyl mercaptan, dimethyl sulfide (DMS) and methylmercapto-proprionaldehyde (MMP)."

Webmaster's Commentary:

North Korea Warns "More Drills" Coming, Says Launch Was "Prelude To Containing Guam"

Just when it seemed that a full day may pass without some diplomatic fiasco between North Korea and the US sending stocks surging on rising risks of World War III, moments ago North Korea's state-run news agency KCNA issued a statement quoting Kim Jong Un, who said that "the current ballistic rocket launching drill like a real war is the first step of the military operation of the KPA in the Pacific and a meaningful prelude to containing Guam" and added the necessity to "positively push forward the work for putting the strategic force on a modern basis by conducting more ballistic rocket launching drills with the Pacific as a target in the future."

A majority of Texans don't have flood insurance. That could be a problem for the government.

Those with flood insurance are likely to begin filing claims either through private insurers or through a federally-backed program known as the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Those who opted for insurance coverage through the government are likely to place additional financial strain on a system that has been burdened following two costly storms: Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy. Those disasters alone left the federal program roughly $25 billion in debt to the Treasury Department.

That $25 billion puts the NFIP, which is administered through FEMA, close to its debt ceiling of $30 billion.

"It's possible that an event as catastrophic as Hurricane Harvey could send the program to the point where it's hitting that limit in terms of debt. Congress is set to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance Program this September, and Hurricane Harvey may light the fire to make some reforms that will put the program on a financially solvent path.

NEW SENATE BILL TARGETS WIKILEAKS, RUSSIA, INDEPENDENT PRESS, AND FIRST AMENDMENT

WITH THE RUSSIAN MEDDLING NARRATIVE SERVING AS A PRETEXT, THE U.S. SENATE, EMBRACING THE “POMPEO DOCTRINE,” IS MOVING TO STIFLE AND CRIMINALIZE WIKILEAKS AND, BY EXTENSION, ANY SUCH “DANGEROUS,” TRANSPARENCY-PROVIDING ENTITIES THAT THREATEN TO CAST DOUBT UPON WASHINGTON’S “OFFICIAL STORIES.”

The Senate Intelligence Committee is pushing Congress to label WikiLeaks a “non-state hostile intelligence service,” having adopted that very position in the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) it approved last month. The terminology used in the bill originates from a speech given in April by CIA director Mike Pompeo, who called the pro-transparency media organization a “non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted” by “hostile” nations.

WikiLeaks’ editor-in-chief, Julian Assange, has slammed the Senate bill as an attempt to legislate what he termed the “Pompeo doctrine.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but a logical question must be asked here; what specific, documented, and credible evidence does the US Senate Intelligence Committee have regarding Russia having allegedly tampered with the 2016 elections?!?

The short answer is: none.

And there is a second logical question which needs also to be asked: when, ever, has Wickileaks lied about any of the information it made public?!?

The short answer is, never.

This bill is not about the truth that Wickileaks has shared with the public, or alleged "Russian meddling" in the 2016 elections, which cannot, to date, be documented: it is about the degree to which Wickileaks has embarrassed those in the Bowels in Power in DC, who now want to seek the most severe retribution for Wikileaks' unwavering honesty that it possibly can.

IF this bill gets passed, any defender of free speech, or actually telling the documented truth, is fair game for massive government prosecution, including Christian pacifist activists like me, who never advocate violence, and constantly exhort their government to resolve their geopolitical disputes through hard-won, moral negotiations, rather than through war.

This bill, should it be passed, constitutes a two-front war, against both free speech and government accountability, at an unparalleled level.

To all of Rivero's Rangers out there: please call, email, text, or write to your (alleged) Senators, and tell them that if they vote this bill through, that you can never, in good conscience, vote for them ever again: it is just that simple.

US TROOPS IN SYRIA BATTLE ANTI-ASSAD REBELS ONCE FUNDED BY THE CIA

US troops in SyriaAmerican troops deployed in Syria have exchanged fire with rebels that were until recently supported by the United States Central Intelligence Agency. In 2013, soon after the outbreak of the Syrian Civil War, the then-US President Barack Obama instructed the Central Intelligence Agency to provide covert support to fighters in Syria. Acting on the president’s directive, the CIA promptly joined forces with spy agencies from Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, to assist fighters affiliated with the Free Syrian Army. At that time, Washington saw the Free Syrian Army and forces affiliated with it as ideologically moderate. It also agreed with the group’s main aim, which was to topple the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

HARVEY MAKES SECOND LANDFALL IN LOUISIANA AFTER LEAVING "APOCALYPTIC" FLOODING, RECORD RAINFALL IN TEXAS

Five days after it first plowed into southwest Texas as a category 4 hurricane, Tropical Storm Harvey has made second landfall west of Cameron on the border between Texas and Louisiana, early Wednesday according to the National Hurricane Center. The storm, which has already pummeled the city of Houston with more than 50 inches of rain – a new record for the contiguous US, according to the Wall Street Journal – has left at least 18 dead, including two Houston police officers, and forced tens of thousands of people from their homes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please pray for these people, many of whom did not have flood insurance, and have lost, or will lose, everything.

But also, please couple those prayers with practicality, donating to a charity you trust for relief efforts regarding the devastation Harvey has created.

Hurricane Harvey threatening to bring US to halt as fuel network squeezed by floods

US drivers are starting to feel the effects of Tropical Storm Harvey in their wallets as the country's fuel distribution network starting at the Gulf Coast and stretching across the country is squeezed by floods, refinery closures and dwindling supplies.

At least 3.6 million barrels per day (bpd) of refining capacity is offline and more refineries are at risk of shut downs as the storm relentlessly dumps rain on Texas and heads toward Louisiana.

The longer refineries remain shut, the more retail prices will increase, traders and analysts said.

Woman Wants to Change the Name of 'Father's Day' — And Her Suggested Replacement Is Far From 'Special'

Political correctness isn't just an issue people deal with in the United States.

In Australia, there is a campaign to rename “Father's Day,” and the head-turning idea is gaining a lot of support.

The move to rename the iconic day is being spearheaded by Red Ruby Scarlet, who has a Ph.D. in early childhood studies.

Scarlet thinks “Father's Day” is unfair for kids who don't have dads. What does she want to do about it? Change the name of the holiday to “Special Persons' Day.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This shows the lack of logic behind the PC movement. Yes, many children do not have fathers. But many children do not have mothers as well. Why focus only on Father's Day?

Islands of venomous fire ant colonies spotted floating in rising floodwaters in Houston

Amid the horrific devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, several islands of fire ants have been spotted floating on the rising floodwaters in Houston.

The fire ants, which are known for their painful bites and venom, appear to have perfected their survival skills by coming together to create a raft or a structure of some sort.

A study released in July from researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology found that fire ants are able to link their bodies together thanks to the sticky pads underneath their feet.

When they do unite, the moving ants from afar resemble a pile of dirt or wood chips.

Photos and videos shared to social media in recent days from the Houston area show the creepy insects floating, as experts are advise people to not touch the ants.

Permanent Adolescence: The Epidemic That Will Destroy America

As a Humanities professor I have had the opportunity to teach psychology and social psychology for more than 20 years. Occasionally the knowledge obtained in these areas allows me analyze and understand social behavior and certain cultural trends. This is one those occasions. If one is able to observe American society in an objective manner (granted no easy task) it becomes clear that the country is suffering from an epidemic of arrested emotional development (AED). This particular illness is characterized by some combination of: addiction, greed, immaturity, fear, blame, shame, resentments, anger, confusion and suffering. What it means is that the vast majority of Americans are stuck in adolescence exhibiting behavior like lying, negative attitudes, disobedience and disrespect, drug and alcohol abuse, depression, and issues of sexuality.
