Ukraine: Massive Forest Fire Threatens Abandoned Chernobyl Nuclear Plant

Emergency crews in Ukraine are trying to stop a massive forest fire from spreading towards the abandoned Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Prime Minister Arseniy Yatesenyuk has flown over the area in the north of the country.

There was a warning that high winds were blowing the flames towards Chernobyl where, 29 years ago this week, a reactor fire led to the world’s worst nuclear disaster.

A 30 kilometre exclusion zone remains in place around the plant, which is still contaminated by radioactive particles.

Who Hacked the White House? The Russia-haters are sure they know

Not a shred of evidence is given as to the identity or nationality of the hackers except the assertions of anonymous government officials. We have to wait until the seventh paragraph to read that they “are presumed to be linked to the Russian government, if not working for it.”

Watch the Citizens of Baltimore Stand up to the Mob

Despite the best attempts of some to portray the unrest in Baltimore as a kind of righteous resistance against an unjust system, the evidence suggests otherwise. By now we’ve all seen footage of the looting and the burning store fronts. For Baltimore, the past few days have been absolute madness as the vile and the ignorant took to the streets to wreck their city.

What Makes Brussels More Equal Than Others

Dutch daily Algemeen Dagblad ran a little article recently that we’re surprised no other news organization picked up. It concerned a proposal in the European Parliament in which the parliamentarians got to vote on raising their own paycheck (always a good idea). The best thing about the story is that not everyone voted in favor.

Most did though. It much amused me to see that apparently it was Angela Merkel’s party, the German Christian Democrats, which was behind the proposal. Initially, they had even wanted double what they actually got. Here’s some numbers and details – and please forgive me for not being a math wizard -.

Ontario Budget Will Result in Devastating Hospital Cuts If Funding is Not Improved

(Toronto) – For the fourth consecutive year Ontario’s hospitals will suffer real-dollar budget cuts according to today’s Ontario Budget. This is the longest unbroken period of real-dollar public hospital cuts in Ontario’s history. Already, Ontario has cut hospital beds more drastically than virtually anywhere else in Canada, or the industrialized world. Maternity units, entire wards, even entire hospitals are threatened with closure. Despite all rhetoric and false claims, these are not services that are being replaced in community care. The hospital cuts are resulting in accelerated privatization, hardship for patients and unsafe hospital overcrowding that now ranks among the worst in the developed world.

While the government has openly announced its plans to privatize Ontario Hydro, the real-dollar cuts across all public services and health care also mean damaging – and potentially irreversible – cuts, closures and privatization of needed health care and other social services.

Low Fat and Low Saturated Fat Diet Bad for Health

The mantra that saturated fat is bad for you and must be removed to reduce the risk of heart disease has been drummed into public consciousness for almost four decades. But independent scientific evidence shows that this advice has paradoxically increased our cardiovascular risk. And the obsession with total cholesterol levels has led to the over- medication of millions with statins with yet more harm than benefit.

The British Medical Journal (BMJ) re-opened the debate on dietary fat and cholesterol lowering drugs with major articles published in October 2013, especially one by cardiologist Aseem Malhotra at Croydon University Hospital, London on why saturated fat is not the major issue [1], and another by John Abramson at Harvard Medical School and three colleagues in US and Canada universities asking if people at low risk of cardiovascular disease should take a statin [2].

12 Unanswered Questions About The Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us To Ask

Why did the Baltimore riots seem like they were perfectly staged to be a television event? Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place?

Insight - A New Stockholm To Be Built Within 6 Years

The Swedish political elite have plans to build a new city, funded entirely by Swedish taxpayers, to accommodate the massive wave of incoming immigrants. This radical plan also proposes the confiscation of summer homes and the conversion of old historical buildings and churches in order to facilitate the arrival of new immigrants. Meanwhile, Sweden's welfare system is plummeting as politicians suffer from Stockholm syndrome, trying to be a "humanitarian superpower." Native Swedes have been chosen to carry the weight of the world, sacrificing themselves on the altar of multiculturalism.

The Orioles and White Sox will play in front of an empty stadium

On Monday and Tuesday, games between the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox at Camden Yards were cancelled due to safety concerns related to protests and civil unrest in Baltimore. Because of a lack of common off days among teams in the typical Major League Baseball schedule, additional cancellations would have been nearly impossible to make up, but the solution is still stunning: Wednesday's game will be played in front of an empty stadium.

Embracing the Saudi War on Yemen

Saudis have been helped by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who has relied on the powerful Israel Lobby and his own rhetoric to divert the U.S. Congress from a focus on Al-Qaeda and its hyper-brutal spinoff, the Islamic State, to Iran, which both Saudi Arabia and Israel have designated their primary regional enemy.

Fearful of further offending the powerful Saudi-Israeli alliance, President Obama is deploying the U.S. Navy to seal off poverty-stricken Yemen so the Saudi air force has free rein to pummel its regional rivals from the air while the population faces a humanitarian crisis on the ground, reports Robert Parry.

The Message of Anzac: Put Out More Flags, or Shut Up

Ray loathed warmongering and would approve of my second hero. This is Scott McIntyre, a young SBS soccer journalist who, in four now famous Tweets, set out to counter the authoritarian sludge that demands that Australians celebrate the centenary of a criminal waste of life in the British imperial invasion of Turkey a century ago — in which Australians and New Zealanders, the “Anzacs”, took part — rather than recognise unpalatable truths about the past and present.

Opportunistic politicians and journalists have turned this melancholy event into a death cult that puzzles foreigners. Federal governments have spent almost $400 million promoting it as a fake patriotism – more than Britain, France, Germany and Canada combined: countries that lost many more men in the 1914-18 bloodfest. Today, the military and venal militarism are virtually off-limits for real public criticism.

Why? Australia, a nation without enemies, is now spending $28billion a year on the military and war and armaments in order to fulfil a tragic, entirely colonial and obsequious role, now as Washington’s “deputy sheriff” in the Asia-Pacific.

Man's decade old arrest, death draws similarities to Baltimore's Freddie Gray case

Five years ago Friday, April 24, 2010, a judge sided with the estate of Dondi Johnson, Sr., a 43-year-old man who died two weeks after a ride in a police transport vehicle.

ABC2 looked into the documents to see if there are any similarities between the two cases.

Vienna University of Technology: Is the universe a hologram?

At first glance, there is not the slightest doubt: to us, the universe looks three dimensional. But one of the most fruitful theories of theoretical physics in the last two decades is challenging this assumption. The "holographic principle" asserts that a mathematical description of the universe actually requires one fewer dimension than it seems. What we perceive as three dimensional may just be the image of two dimensional processes on a huge cosmic horizon.

Up until now, this principle has only been studied in exotic spaces with negative curvature. This is interesting from a theoretical point of view, but such spaces are quite different from the space in our own universe. Results obtained by scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) now suggest that the holographic principle even holds in a flat spacetime.

Read Ted Cruz's 2009 Defense of Obama's Stimulus as an Aid to America's "Economic Recovery"

What a difference a job title ($695-an-hour corporate lawyer versus Senator) and a few years makes... Well, moves like this definitely help explain his rise to the top (of the American political pond where only the scum rises to the top).

What a total and utter hypocrite Ted Cruz is. Most people don't even realize if this guy gets in, Goldman Sachs will literally be living in the White House. Oh sure, Cruz's wife Heidi, who up until recently worked in Latin American mergers and acquisitions for the too-big-to-fail banking giant, took a little time off to help him run his campaign for president... but let's stop kidding ourselves.

Israel Evacuates Surrogate Babies From Nepal But Leaves the Mothers Behind

An Israeli Boeing-747 returned from Nepal to Israel’s Ben Gurion International Airport on Tuesday afternoon, and among its 229 passengers were 15 Israeli babies, all born within the last six weeks to surrogate mothers in Nepal.

Some of the babies were with their Israeli parents and others were cared for by Israeli passengers. None of the surrogate mothers were allowed to travel.

The Sovereign Nation of Shetland

Sovereign Nation of Shetland follows SNP lead.

Following the SNP's lead, the Sovereign Nation of Shetland (the SNS) is promoting a manifesto in an election it cannot possibly win, but in which it may be able to exert some influence. Just as the SNP is intent on independence from the UK, the SNS manifesto promotes the benefits of independence from Scotland. What's good for the goose is apparently good for the gander.

Spokesman Stuart Hill said: “Official figures reveal that Shetland would be £76 million better off – that's £7,600 per household. Half-price petrol and 20%off goods and services, plus fair money, fair justice and most of all fair democracy are additional benefits. When you add North Sea oil to the mix and the fact that Shetland has a £131 million per year positive trade balance with the rest of the world, independence does not seem so impossible or frightening – unless viewed from the UK perspective.”

Everything You Need To Know About Rioting Thugs In Baltimore Summed Up In One Cartoon

Outspoken Milwaukee Sheriff David A. Clarke, Jr. blasted Baltimore rioters and the left-wing agenda he says created the powder keg that blew up into violence.

On Fox News’ “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” Clarke told the host that liberal policies, not the death of accused drug dealer Freddie Gray, are responsible for the violence in the city.

Utility-issued ‘smart’ meters explode on 5,000 homes after truck rams utility pole

Thousands of California residents were left without power recently after their so-called “smart” meters exploded due to an unexpected power surge. According to CBS Sacramento, more than 5,000 homes in the Stockton area were left with blackened, charred, and completely destroyed smart meters after a dump truck crashed into a nearby utility pole, pulling the static line down onto the distribution line.

Just 42 percent of the residents in Freddie Gray’s neighborhood are employed

Freddie Gray, the 25-year-old black man who died in police custody, was born into Sandtown’s literally toxic ghetto, according to a lawsuit he and his two sisters filed in 2008. The Sun’s Jean Marbella writes that the family claimed damaging lead levels in their blood as children led to “multiple educational, behavioral and medical problems.” They settled in 2010 for an undisclosed sum.

Whether because of lead or even more intractable structural problems, Sandtown has been unable to shake the kinds of economic woes prevalent in other predominantly African-American inner city neighborhoods.

Here are the terrifying facts about Sandtown, according to U.S. Census tract data.

— Just 42 percent of residents are employed, compared to the national average of 59 percent.

— Thirty-three percent of residential properties are vacant or abandoned.

— Just 54 percent of its residents are even in the labor force, even though 77 percent of residents are between 20 and 64 years old.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you don't have a healthy environment, meaningful education, leading to meaningful jobs and the ability to better yourself, you are in a very, very bad situation indeed.

Hopelessness, exacerbated by police brutality, will ultimately lead to violence.

And it is very obvious that Baltimore PD has some industrial strength soul-searching to do about not letting officers, sworn to uphold the law, break it by brutalizing suspects, and not following standards and practices to the letter.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

Paul Volcker Invests in Foreign Banks as He Lectures on U.S. Bank Reform

Last Monday, former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker held a press conference at the National Press Club to release his nonprofit’s plan for reforming U.S. bank regulation. Volcker’s plan includes elevating the Federal Reserve to even greater heights as a super regulator of a consolidated system. That’s exactly the opposite of what Congress has in mind as it holds hearings on fatal conflicts of interests between the Fed and Wall Street.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that there are two prerequisites for getting into the top levels of the banking industry; the morals of a trout, and a conscience which has been surgically removed.

RON PAUL EXPOSES THE REAL WAR ON THE MIDDLE CLASS

Few things would benefit the middle class more than ending the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve’s inflationary policies erode middle-class families’ standards of living while benefiting the financial and political elites. Middle-class Americans may gain some temporary benefits from Federal Reserve created booms, but they also suffer from the inevitable busts.

As I write this, the dollar still reigns as the world’s reserve currency. However, there are signs that other economies are moving away from using the dollar as the reserve currency, and this trend will accelerate as the Federal Reserve continues to pump more fiat currency into the economy and as resentment toward our foreign policy grows. Eventually, international investors will lose confidence in the US economy, the dollar will lose its reserve currency status, and the dollar bubble will burst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That slippage of the US dollar as the world's reserve currency may well be closer than many people think.

Baltimore: The Rioters were Set Up

The police stood down and refrained from their usual brutality, for the cameras. Those rioters were set up. They were incited by a brutal unprovoked murder of one of their friends and left to destroy some insured property that was dispensable to the establishment. It served the more important purpose of “demonstrating” how “thuggish” these rioters are….not.

Baltimore Police Caught On Video Beating and Arresting Reporters During Protests

But once they heard about isolated incidences of violence at the rallies demanding “Justice for Freddie Gray” the began scrambling to hone in, while ignoring the rampant police brutality at the same marches.

Outside of the local area, the media has been silent on the police on the scene beating and arresting journalists, after first attempting to stop them from recording.

Tulsa Undersheriff Resigns Amid Allegations He Falsified Training Records Of Eric Harris' Killer

Tulsa Country Undersheriff Tim Albin has resigned after documents revealed he unfairly promoted Robert Bates, the volunteer reserve deputy who mistakenly shot Eric Harris earlier this month.

Tulsa World reports that recently released documents show Albin falsified Bates' training records and quashed his colleagues' concerns about the deputy.

Sheriff Stanley Glanz announced Albin's resignation today at a County Board of Commissioners meeting.

Bates, a 73-year-old insurance executive, shot and killed Harris on April 2. Bates says he meant to Taser Harris but grabbed his handgun by mistake. Bates was charged with second-degree homicide April 14, and turned himself in.

10,000 Strong Peacefully Protest In Downtown Baltimore, Media Only Reports The Violence & Arrest of Dozens

10,000 people from across the country peacefully protested in Baltimore in support of the seeking of justice of the death of Freddie Gray. Despite the fact that 100 of the 10,000 acted up and approximately 35 people were arrested after the peaceful protest, (that’s about 1%), much of the mainstream media used attention grabbing words in their headlines like ‘Protest Turns Destructive, (USA Today)’ ‘Scenes of Chaos In Baltimore… (NY Times), Dozens Arrested After Protest Turns Violent (WBAL TV). One website BreitBart.com’s headlines read: 1,000 Black Rioters In Baltimore Smash Police Cars, Attack Motorists In Frenzied Protest.

Baltimore riots: Security beefed up, cleanup starts after looting, fires

Charred cars and buildings. Hospitalized police officers. Looted and damaged businesses. No school, because it might not be safe for children to go outside.

That was the stark reality Tuesday after a day and night that saw 202 arrests, 144 vehicle fires and 19 structure fires, according to city spokesman Kevin Harris.

"What happened ... destroyed so much of the progress that the people who actually live here have been working for," said Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, calling Monday "a very dark day for our city."

Track The Real-Time Position Of Ship Which Pentagon Says Was Seized By Iran

Following initial confusion about which ship was shot at, seized and confiscated by Iran, with Arabiya and Farsnews reporting it was a US ship with 34 soldiers on board, while the Pentagon subsequently stating there were no US personnel on the cargo ship which was a Marshall Island-flagged cargo vessel, the Maersk Tigris, the situation still remains fluid, especially considering the latest news out of the Pentagon:

U.S. SENT DESTROYER AND AIRCRAFT TO MONITOR SHIP, WARREN SAYS

But why if it isn't a US ship? And how will Iran react when the US naval "cavalry" arrives in its territorial waters?

Some more news on the ship in question: according to Bloomberg, the Maersk Tigris cargo vessel was in international waters when taken by Iranian navy, Cor Radings, external spokesman for Rickmers Ship Management, says by phone. Rickmers is manager of vessel. 24 crew on board ship; not known why vessel was taken. Rickmers trying to re-establish contact with vessel.
