Controlled Opposition.

Hamas launched in 1988 in Gaza at the time of the first intifada, or uprising, with a charter now infamous for its anti-Semitism and its refusal to accept the existence of the Israeli state. But for more than a decade prior, Israeli authorities actively enabled its rise.

Hawaii volcano: Fears for HUGE Big Island eruption as THIRTY-FOUR earthquakes hit in day

FEARS of a huge Hawaii volcano eruption are growing after the Big Island tourist hotspot was hit by 34 earthquakes over a single 24-hour period.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is from yesterday. As of 5 this morning, a major explosive event has started at Kilauea, pushing the ash cloud to 30,000 feet.

Donald Trump LAMBASTS ‘freeloading’ NHS and demands UK PAY MORE for drugs after Brexit

DONALD Trump is threatening to use post-Brexit trade talks to lower the price of prescription drugs for US patients by forcing the NHS to pay more, in a move which could cost the UK billions.

The Republican firebrand blamed the US’s high prescription drug costs on countries such as the UK with nationalised healthcare systems, which he believes are “freeloading” at the expense of America.

Commenting on the US prescription drug crisis, Mr Trump said last week: “In some cases, medicine that costs a few dollars in a foreign country costs hundreds of dollars in America for the same pill. That is unacceptable.

“The drug prices have gone through the roof.

Glyphosate Should Be Banned By EPA And The Law—It’s A Hormone Disruptor

By Catherine J. Frompovich

More and more information is surfacing, almost daily, about adverse health effects regarding herbicides, pesticides and agricultural chemicals, specifically glyphosate, the prime active in Monsanto’s Roundup®.

What consumers need to know is that most crops now are “staged” several days prior to harvest with glyphosate to have “uniformly desiccated” crop yields...

Beyond the Flint tragedy: Contaminated drinking water is everywhere in America

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan, became a national news story, and for good reason. Republican leaders in the state were finally forced to take steps to stop the poisoning of Flint's drinking water with lead and other toxins, foisted on the community as part of a short-sighted cost-cutting measure. Despite improvements, the future of Flint's water supply is uncertain, but at least that story has brought increased attention to the problem of lead in water in many large cities, including Chicago.

The grim reality, however, is that the problems with American drinking water are diverse and widespread, even if most aren't quite as severe as what happened in Flint. Agricultural waste in particular is poisoning water, especially in rural areas, creating a myriad of health risks. Current government policy remains poorly equipped to deal with this issue.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For being derelict in their duty to provide clean water for their citizens, city and county officials, wherever there is a water crisis of their own making, should be doing hard jail time.

There are conservational experts and water experts who would understand how not to let this happen, and they should be an important part of every city and county infrastructure in this country.

'Explosive Eruption' At Kilauea Volcano Sends Ash Sky-High, Locals Urged To Shelter In Place

It seemed things at Hawaii's Kilauea Voclano were calming down just a bit Wednesday night, but then an explosive eruption from the volcano's summit crater sent ash over 25,000 feet into the atmosphere at around 5 a.m. local time Thursday.

Hawaii's Emergency Management Agency says people should shelter in place if possible as the ash plume is expected to spread to the southeast, creating difficult driving conditions.

The National Weather Service has issued an ashfall advisory for the vicinity of Kilauea.

Stunned scientists find BLUEBERRIES are better at destroying cancer cells than conventional radiation therapy alone

The University of Missouri research team wanted to investigate the use of blueberry extract as a radiosensitizer – a non-toxic, natural substance which enhances the efficacy of conventional cancer treatments like radiation and chemotherapy. The team previously had success treating prostate cancer using a polyphenol in red grapes called resveratrol as a radiosensitizer.

To their surprise, blueberry extract not only proved to be a powerful radiosensitizer, but was shown to be an even more effective cervical cancer treatment than radiation.

Ebola Goes Urban: WHO Warns of "Potential for EXPLOSIVE INCREASE"

Ebola is back, and in a "new phase." The deadly hemorrhagic fever is no longer confined to the remote regions of the Congo. On Wednesday, a man was diagnosed in Mbandaka, a city with a population of nearly 1.2 million people in Equateur Province, which is in the northwestern part of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Ebola has gone urban.

YouTube begins banning video channels for talking about CBD oil; claims CBD oil “poses risk of serious physical harm or death”

Jumping in bed with Big Pharma and the corrupt cancer industry, YouTube has begun banning entire video channels that post videos describing the compassionate use of CBD oil in cancer patients.

In addition to re-banning the Health Ranger video channel over a video that called for racial unity and peace in our world (see below), YouTube has now permanently banned the “Natural News” channel, claiming a 43-second video we posted about the compassionate healing potential of CBD oil was subjecting viewers to “risk of serious physical harm or death.” Rather than allowing the issuance of three strikes before banning a channel, YouTube permanently banned our channel with a single strike.

These space rocks, which orbit uncomfortably close to our planet, were spotted just once by scientists.

Researchers were unable to continue tracking them, which means they have no way of knowing if they are on a collision course with Earth.

Despite fears they could smash into Earth, experts say there is a 'low chance' of of surprise near-Earth asteroids causing damage.

Live NEWS/PALESTINE Laila Anwar al-Ghandour becomes the face of Gaza carnage

Laila Anwar al-Ghandour, an eight-month-old baby girl, died of tear-gas inhalation at dawn, Gaza's Ministry of Health says, highlighting international outrage over the killings by Israeli soldiers of 60 Palestinians who joined in a massive protest against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Laila was the youngest fatality of the demonstrations on Monday, which were held in the run up to the 70th anniversary on Tuesday of the Nakba, or Catastrophe, the day the state of Israel was established on May 15, 1948, forcing hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes.

Proposed GMO Disclosure Rule Leaves Consumers in the Dark

Last week, the Department of Agriculture published a long-awaited draft rule implementing a groundbreaking disclosure law for foods with genetically engineered ingredients, commonly called GMOs.

Americans should have the right to know what’s in their food and how it’s grown, just like consumers in 64 other nations. When Congress passed the first-ever national GMO food disclosure law in 2016 – and blocked states from passing or enforcing their own labeling laws – lawmakers promised consumers a disclosure system that would cover more ingredients and be simple to use.

MEDIA WON’T INVESTIGATE MEDICALLY CAUSED DEATH NUMBERS

Imagine a Congressional hearing held before media cameras, with reporters all over the US and Europe ready with shocking articles about one of the leading causes of death—

SENATOR: Sir, I have the numbers in front of me. How can you keep this secret from the public?

FDA COMMISSIONER: It’s not a secret, sir. Many experts know about it.

SENATOR: I’m looking through the trillion-dollar federal budget. I’m looking for the money allocated to fix this horrible situation. Where are those funds?

FDA COMMISSIONER: Nowhere.

I know major media won’t investigate medically-caused death numbers, because I’ve published reports for years, and I’ve contacted news people with the facts; and nothing happens.

So we begin with a few citations.

July 26, 2000, Journal of the American Medical Association; author, Dr. Barbara Starfield, revered public health expert at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health; “Is US health really the best in the world?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trust me: the Unhinged, Surveilled States of America is not a place where you get ill, old, and broke all at the same time.

War criminals like Dick Cheney will always get the best of care; remember how he, apparently, got bumped up to the top of the list for his heart transplant?!?

How Dick Cheney Got His New Heart This article concludes with the following statement:

"The problem for him and his is that he has shone the spotlight a bit too brightly on the wrong side of the debate. Old man Cheney and his million-dollar heart serve to remind us just how ugly health care can be when it is a simple commodity given to someone with friends in high places, even if he (possibly) did get the organ through routine channels. He now and forever is the poster child for why health care must be a right, not the latest luxe trinket for those few who can afford it."

Doctor accused of fraud and misdiagnosing patients to fund 'opulent lifestyle'

Maria Zapata went to see Dr. Jorge Zamora-Quezada a little more than five years ago because one of her knees was bothering her. The rheumatologist told her that she had arthritis and that he'd give her injections "to strengthen the cartilage" in her knee, she said.

Her husband asked, "Why are you giving her so many injections?" The doctor reassured them that the treatment would help.
But Zapata, 70, of McAllen, Texas, said the medication didn't help and might have been making things worse: There was discoloration on her legs. Other doctors raised concern about the treatments, and her family doctor even told her she didn't have arthritis.
Zapata was not the only patient given treatment she might not have needed, according to a joint federal and local investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is far more common than you think.

When a doctor is prescribing a medication for you, one of the most uncomfortable - but necessary - questions you need to ask, is, is that doctor being compensated by the pharmaceutical corpration making the prescription drug they are prescribing?!?

The reason I say this, is that I got caught up in this, with a prescription given to me by my HMO, a number of years ago. But the issue that was causing the pain, for which I was prescribed the medication, was never resolved, which it could have been, with a chemical sensitivity test, which was never done, most probably because the physician who prescribed the drug was being compensated by the manufacturer of that drug.

Bless him, it took 40 minutes for Mike to identify what I was dealing with; I am horrifically allergic to formaldehyde precursors, and the presence of this chemical is ubiquitous in the US. Mike threw out every product in our home which contained this chemical, and within 24 hours, I was able to walk without pain for the first time in half a decade.

I took the supporting documentation back to my orthopod, and was more than a little angry that the chemical sensitivity test, which could have saved me so much pain, was never ordered, because a physician, who is no longer with my HMO, was literally profiting from my extreme discomfort.

Don't let yourself be a victim of this practice; ask, and tell your physician that you understand how common a practice it is, and how you are concerned that it might sway a physician's judgement, in the name of passive income.

Hawaii goes on RED ALERT for 'major eruption' of Kilauea volcano as huge ash plume billows 12,000 FEET into the sky with the USGS warning of an 'explosive and imminent' event sparking preparations for mass evacuations

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could have a major devastating eruption at 'any time', the US Geographical Survey has said.

The volcano has been erupting for 10 days, and more than 2000 residents have already been evacuated.

'At any time, activity may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent,' the USGS said on Tuesday afternoon.

The USGS also raised the volcano aviation alert level at Hawaii’s Kilauea to red - the highest level - which indicates a 'major volcanic eruption is imminent, underway, or suspected with hazardous activity both on the ground and in the air.'

Glyphosate shown to disrupt microbiome 'at safe levels', study claims

A chemical found in the world’s most widely used weedkiller can have disrupting effects on sexual development, genes and beneficial gut bacteria at doses considered safe, according to a wide-ranging pilot study in rats.

Glyphosate is the core ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide and levels found in the human bloodstream have spiked by more than a 1,000% in the last two decades.

The substance was recently relicensed for a shortened five-year lease by the EU. But scientists involved in the new glyphosate study say their results show that it poses “a significant public health concern”.

One of the report’s authors, Daniele Mandrioli, at the Ramazzini Institute in Bologna, Italy, said significant and potentially detrimental effects from glyphosate had been detected in the gut bacteria of rat pups born to mothers, who appeared to have been unaffected themselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The following website lays out, with clarity, how Monsanto owns political candidates at the Federal level:

Contributions to Federal Candidates, 2018 cycle

And when a political candidate is owned, in terms of being supported by a company which produces a product being potentially deadly to We the People, they stay owned, no matter what the hard science says.

North Korea threatens to CANCEL nuclear summit with Trump because it believes 'provocative military ruckus' of joint U.S.-South Korea drills are rehearsal for invasion

When it rains it pours!

North Korea's government says it is considering calling off a planned nuclear summit between dictator Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim's regime said through state-run news agency KCNA that ongoing 'Max Thunder' joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea are actually a 'rehearsal for invasion' of the North.

'The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities,' KCNA said.

Lawmakers Introduce Farm Bill Amendment to Prohibit Federal Government Interference in Raw Milk Sales

A bipartisan group of lawmakers have introduced an amendment to the House Farm Bill designed to make it easier for consumers to access raw milk.

As part of the ongoing debate of the so called “Farm Bill,” three representatives have introduced an amendment to prohibit the federal government from intervening in state laws which allow for the sale of raw milk. The House Rules Committee will debate a number of amendments on Tuesday and Wednesday before a potential floor vote later this week...

Panic as new lava eruption threatens to block the LAST escape route from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano

Thousands more people may have to evacuate after lava flowing from giant rips in the earth on the flank of Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano threatened the last available escape routes.

One fissure opened up Tuesday and two others on Monday on Hawaii's Big Island, raising the possibility that officials might have to order further mass evacuations.

Lava from a huge new fissure tore through farmland towards a coastal dirt road that is one of the last exit routes for some 2,000 residents in the southeast area of Hawaii's Big Island.

Hawaiian Volcano: EXPLOSION EXPECTED! 19 Fissures, Spewing ‘Lava Bombs’

The unpredictable 2,000-degree lava is taking its toll on volcano evacuees on Hawaii’s Big Island. But there is one predictable outcome: the volcanic situation in Hawaii is going to get worse. Evacuees are now awaiting an “imminent” eruption that could rain car-size boulders and ash onto this tropical paradise.

Nearly 2,000 people have already been barred from their homes for 10 days as the Kilauea volcano pours lava through a rural neighborhood about 35 miles from Hilo, the island’s largest city. The eruption is showing no signs of slowing down either, with scientists warning it will “explode” anytime now.

RAPPOPORT: TWO HUGE VACCINE SCANDALS THE PRESS IS IGNORING

Two giant vaccine scandals are in progress at the moment.

The mainstream press is mentioning them, here and there, but without any intent to raise alarms, dig in, investigate, and get down to the core of the problem.

So I’ll get to the core.

The first scandal revolves around the flu vaccine for the current year. The CDC and other “experts” have admitted the vaccine has a very low effectiveness rate.

Why is it a dud?

Because the vaccine is produced using chicken eggs, and in that medium, the flu virus—which is intentionally placed in the eggs—mutates. Therefore, it isn’t the same virus which is causing flu this year. Therefore, no protection against the flu.

Kilauea’s Next Eruptions May Mirror a Big One in Its Past

This week fissure number 18 opened on the east flank of Hawaii’s rumbling Kilauea Volcano, another in the set of rift-zone fractures advancing toward the Pacific coast. Several miles westward, nestled in Kilauea’s summit caldera, Halema‘uma‘u pit crater is evolving toward a hazardous scenario that reminds volcanologists like myself of a giant blowout that happened there in 1924.

May 15 11:53

The lava oozing from Kilauea may get hotter and spew farther

One of the early hallmarks of this month's lava eruptions on Hawaii's Big Island was that the molten rock, though it destroyed homes and roads, generally didn't often ooze very far.

That could change soon, with scientists saying lava erupting in the Kilaeua volcano's rift zone could be even hotter, and therefore more runny.

Why? To start with, geologists think much of the magma oozing from the ground into the community of Leilani Estates since May 3 -- miles east of Kilaeua's summit -- may have been stored in underground channels in the volcano's rift zone since a 1955 eruption.

Hawaii volcano: Kilauea eruption disrupts cruises to Big Island

The recently intensified eruption of the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii's Big Island has disrupted another Hawaiian island cruise.

Norwegian Cruise Line's Hawaii-based Pride of America on Tuesday skipped a call at the Big Island port of Hilo, which is just 43 miles from the now-mostly-closed national park that encompasses the volcano. The 2,186-passenger ship instead remained at sea.

Norwegian also announced that Pride of America would skip a call at Kailua-Kona on the Big Island scheduled for Thursday. The ship instead will spend an extra day in Maui.

The cancellations comes a week after Royal Caribbean dropped a call in Hilo scheduled for its 2,143-passenger Radiance of Seas.

Flint workers treated water by feeding chemicals through 'hole in the floor'

A hand-written log book shows workers preparing to put the Flint water treatment plant into operation in 2013 didn't use a standard pump but a hole in the floor of the building to feed chemicals into Flint River water.

Special prosecutor Todd Flood pushed the point as preliminary examinations continued Monday, May 14, in the criminal cases against four current and former employees of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality in Genesee District Court.

Prosecutors have contended DEQ regulators should have known there were serious problems with Flint's water system even before, but certainly after, the city's water source was changed in April 2014 and employees attempted to treat river water for the first time in decades.

The plant continued to run for 17 months despite rising levels of bacteria and chlorine byproduct in city water and suspicions that the new water could have triggered outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

Yes, I know that the people of Flint are poor, with a chronically under-reported unemployment rate: but why in heaven's name was their collective health so held in contempt, and treated with such a cavalier attitude on the part of city and county officials?!?

There are people who allowed this to happen, who should be getting hard prison time for the decisions which led up to this water catastrophe in Flint, and not in a Club Fed.

This May Be the Best Evidence Yet of a Water Plume on Jupiter's Moon Europa

The newly analyzed Galileo data provides "compelling independent evidence that there seems to be a plume on Europa," said study lead author Xianzhe Jia, an associate professor in the Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering at the University of Michigan. [Possible Water Plumes on Europa: The Discovery in Images]

This is exciting news for astrobiologists: If the plume is indeed real, it could offer a way for a spacecraft to sample Europa's buried ocean of liquid water without even touching down on the moon. And NASA is working on a mission that could do just that.

Lava flow from Hawaii volcano could last for weeks — and paper masks won't keep you safe

Lava from the Kilauea volcano was burning through the rain forest Tuesday and is about two miles from pouring into the ocean, raising the likelihood the Big Island is about to get a little bigger from a flow that could persist for weeks — and could cause serious health problems.

Health officials at a community meeting Monday night cautioned residents that most commonly available face mask filters — the paper kind used for sanding and painting —would protect only against ash and won't remove the sulfur dioxide.

Ocean's Monopoly: How Nations Use Science to Conquer the Sea

What if a country didn't end at the coastline but would simply continue under water? A territory the size of a continent would come up - a territory uncontrolled and open for seizure. But who owns the sea bed, is it territory still to be claimed?

The fact that the world's oceans cover three-quarters of the earth's surface once meant very little to governments around the world. This changed when water exploration teamed with demand for specific resources and the need for power.

The first scientific study of the ocean floor was undertaken by German survey vessel Meteor, which saw it conduct research on the Atlantic Ocean between 1925 and 1927. The information uncovered about the ocean bed changed how nations viewed their once complacent takes on the importance of the ocean - politically and otherwise.

Neonatal Hepatitis B Vaccine, The Autism Influencer From Day One Of Life?

Is the U.S.-mandated Hepatitis B vaccine administered to newborn infants within 24 hours of birth the initial ‘impact’ vaccine for ‘programming’ a child’s unfortunate decline into the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

The answer to that question is a resounding “YES” according to a 2016 peer review study titled, Neonatal hepatitis B vaccination impaired the behavior and neurogenesis of mice transiently in early adulthood published in the Elsevier peer review journal Psychoneuroendochrinology.

Statins may increase people's risk of incurable motor neurone disease by up to 100 times, study finds

Statins may increase people's risk of incurable motor neurone disease (MND), new research suggests.

The drugs, which combat high cholesterol, make people up to 100 times more likely to suffer symptoms of the condition that famously affected the late Professor Sir Stephen Hawkins, a study found.

Lead author Professor Beatrice Golomb, from the University of San Diego, said: 'These findings add to concerns about a possible connection between statin use and the development of MND.

'Until better evidence is available, prompt statin withdrawal should be considered.'

Hawaii volcano prompts 'ring of fire' fears for West Coast

As Hawaii prepares for a possible "explosive eruption," confusion has arisen about the relationship between Kilauea and the West Coast's "ring of fire" volcanoes.

But experts say there's not cause for concern for those who live near "ring of fire" volcanoes. Here's everything you need to know.

WHAT IS THE RING OF FIRE?

The ring of fire is a series of volcanoes encircling the Pacific Ocean. It's known for eruptions caused by movements of tectonic plates. The 25,000 mile-stretch of 450 volcanoes forms a horseshoe shape. Many of these volcanoes may erupt at the same time, as it is all one dynamic system, AccuWeather explains.

Many of the most dangerous volcanoes in the country are a part of the ring of fire, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. These include Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier in Washington; Mount Hood and South Sister in Oregon; and Mount Shasta and Lassen Volcanic Center in California.

IS HAWAII PART OF THE RING OF FIRE?

18 lava outbreaks, a jungle ablaze and a Hawaii volcano still poised to explode

Frustration, anxiety and unpredictable 2,000-degree lava are taking their toll on volcano evacuees on Hawaii’s Big Island while they await an “imminent” eruption that could rain down car-size boulders and ash onto this tropical paradise.

About 1,700 people have been barred from their homes for 10 days as the Kilauea volcano pours lava through a rural neighborhood about 35 miles from Hilo, the island’s largest city.

Hawaii volcano eruption: Tourists banned as expert says eruption could last YEARS

HAWAII volcano Mount Kilauea is close to an explosive eruption according to experts after another fissure opened up on the Big Island spewing hot lava and toxic gas.

And the threat of an eruption could last years, according to some experts, with tourists now being sent packing to save water.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory warned the Halema'uma'u Crater could blow due to the withdrawal of lava at Kilauea’s summit lake.

Hawaii volcano eruption: Kilauea 1,000ft fissure blasts ‘LAVA BOMBS’ into air

The 1,000ft-long (300 meters) crack in the earth appeared suddenly on Sunday morning and started pouring red-hot magma and thick smoke from both ends.

Officials have warned of a potential imminent explosion at the volcano’s summit which could scatter hot ash and debris for miles around.

Residents living close to the massive gouge have described a near-constant roar as the molten rock churns and ejects 100-pound globs of lava up to 100ft into the air.

Shocking pictures taken from a helicopter captured the vivd orange of the oozing molten rock and pitch black of the seared ground against the lush green of the Big Island landscape.

New fissure raises concerns about violent Hawaii volcano explosions

A 17th fissure spewing lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano formed in the southeast corner of the Big Island, officials said Sunday, raising anxieties as the state braces for potentially violent eruptions.

The new fissure, a crack in the ground allowing lava to pour out, comes as state and federal officials already warned residents in that corner of the island to be prepared to evacuate at a moment's notice.

The fissure was spotted west of state Highway 132 and led state officials to call for some residents along Halekamahina Loop Road to leave their homes. Steam and lava spatter could be seen from the new fissure, officials said.

DEA KNOWINGLY GAVE ADDICTS AND DRUG DEALERS LICENSES TO PRESCRIBE OPIOIDS—FUELING THE EPIDEMIC

In 2016, the number of drug overdose deaths in the U.S. rose to nearly 64,000 people, a 21 percent increase over 2015 and an all-time high. Roughly 2 in 3 of those deaths were attributed to opioids.

The heart of America’s opioid crisis isn’t just rooted in the people who use drugs – but also where the drugs originate. In February 2016, Dr. Hsiu-Ying “Lisa” Tseng of Los Angeles became the first doctor in the U.S. to be convicted of murder for overprescribing opioids to multiple patients. Tseng was sentenced to 30 years to life for the deaths of three patients, including after she sold Xanax and oxycodone to a college student who later died after mixing the substances with alcohol.

Huge fissure opens on Hawaiian volcano; some defy evacuation order

A massive new fissure opened on Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, hurling bursts of rock and magma with an ear-piercing screech on Sunday as it threatened nearby homes within a zone where authorities had just ordered an evacuation.

The fissure, a vivid gouge of magma with steam and smoke pouring out both ends, was the 17th to open on the volcano since it began erupting on May 3. Dozens of homes have been destroyed and hundreds of people forced to evacuate in the past 10 days.

As seen from a helicopter, the crack appeared to be about 1,000 feet (300 meters) long and among the largest of those fracturing the side of Kilauea, a 4,000-foot-high (1,200-meter-high) volcano with a lake of lava at its summit.

How State Government fanned flames of volcano disaster

As lava engulfs the homes of many unfortunate Hawaii Island residents, it’s important to remember that the state originally encouraged the building of homes in this dangerous area by offering lava insurance where no private company would.

In the 1990s, the town of Kalapana was destroyed by lava, and soon afterward, private insurance companies, after suffering millions of dollars in losses, stopped insuring land in Lava Zones 1 and 2.

A HELICOPTER will take to the skies above Mars as part of Nasa's 2020 mission to prove whether airborne drones could chart the red planet

Known simply as The Mars Helicopter, the device weighs less than four pounds (1.8 kilograms), and its main body section, or fuselage, is about the size of a softball.

It will serve as a proof of concept, demonstrating that airborne drones work well on Mars, and could pave the way for a fleet of the machines.

Because of the thin atmosphere on the Red Planet, the helicopter's blades will spin at almost 3,000 rpm, approximately ten times faster than on Earth.
