Illegal And Legal Drugs Excreted By Humans Are Wreaking Havoc On Aquatic Ecosystems

By Whitney Webb

It turns out corporate polluters aren’t the only ones disrupting natural ecosystems. Substances excreted by the human body, including illegal drugs, are also finding their way into food chains and aquatic environments. The results are troubling. In a recent investigation published in Environmental Science and Technology, researchers found illegal drug residue in six different rivers in and around Baltimore, Maryland. MDMA, crystal meth, and amphetamine were among the illicit drugs present in collected samples. In order to measure their impact on stream ecology, the researchers then created artificial, simulated streams in the laboratory...

Oil And Gas Companies Dump Fracking Wastewater Directly Into Oceans With EPA Approval

By Whitney Webb

Though many believe that the Gulf of Mexico is “back to normal” following the 2010 BP oil spill, the Gulf has continued to suffer silently in the years since. Natural gas and oil companies, with full approval of the EPA, have been dumping unlimited quantities of fracking wastewater and chemicals into the Gulf, with 75 billion gallons dumped in 2014 alone. Though these massive volumes of wastewater cannot contain oil and must meet toxicity standards, oil and gas well operators are only required to test the waste stream a few times a year with no oversight...

Trump apologizes for lewd remarks in video statement amid GOP uproar

A bunch of stupid traitorous bunch of rinos want to dump Trump. If They want a war they are well on their way to one.
They are trying to turn this BS into a dump Trump scam.

The remarks were met with shock and anger on all sides of the political spectrum. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, called Trump a "distraction" in a statement on Lee's Facebook page and said it was "time for him to step aside so we can focus on the winning ideas that will carry Republicans through to a victory in November."

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, the chairman of the House Oversight Committee, told Fox13 Utah that he could no longer support Trump for president, calling the remarks "abhorrent and offensive." Chaffetz did not say whom he would support instead.Utah Gov. Gary Herbert also withdrew his endorsement of Trump, and former Gov. Jon Huntsman called for the candidate to step aside and let running mate Mike Pence take his place

NASA's Kennedy Space Center suffers limited damage after brush with Hurricane Matthew

NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida seems to have been spared the worst of Hurricane Matthew, after models predicted the area would receive a direct hit from the storm. Instead, the center of the hurricane passed about 26 miles away from KSC’s home at Cape Canaveral, and the storm surge looks like it won't be as bad as previously thought. Apart from a few power outages, there hasn’t been any significant damage reported at KSC so far, according to NASA.

How Corruption Cripples America’s Military

Eric Zuesse

America’s military budget is roughly 7.2 times that of Russia ($610 billion compared to $84.5 billion), but even Western news-accounts are saying that the weaponry produced in Russia is superior overall to the weaponry produced in the United States.

Compare the top-of-the-line fighter jets of the two countries: that’s the F-35 fighter-jet produced by the U.S. corporation Lockheed Martin, versus the Su-35 fighter jet produced by the Russian government (its wholly owned Sukhoi Company). The F-35 costs around $100 million per plane. The Su-35 costs around $65 million per plane.

When interviewed, Thrussell said that there was a ‘highly co-ordinated campaign of intimidation’[v] launched when the decision to show the film was made public. Again—sound familiar?

US Political Prisoner Abu-Jamal Sues Prison for Denying Life-Saving Medicine

Former Black Panther Mumia Abu-Jamal has leveled a federal lawsuit against officials in the Pennsylvania prison system for denying treatment to him for hepatitis C, which has reached life-threatening levels.

On September 30, Abu-Jamal sued five high-ranking officials in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections’ (PDOC) Bureau of Health Care Services, including the physician who treated him, PDOC Secretary John Wetzel and private, for-profit medical contractor Correct Care Solutions. ©

The following was featured on sputniknews.com a little over a year ago, but is still worth reading:

This may well be true, because the charges upon which Abu-Jamal was convicted were a complete fabrication, from beginning to end.

Overwhelming evidence: How vaccines cause 'hypersensitivity' of the immune system and lead to extreme allergies, autism and death

Peanut oils were introduced as vaccine excipients in the mid 1960s. By 1980 they had become the preferred excipient. They were considered adjuvants - substances able to increase reactivity to the vaccine. This reinforced the Adjuvant Myth: the illusion that immune response is the same as immunity: the pretense being that the stronger the allergic response to the vaccine, the greater will be the immunity that is conferred. The first study of peanut allergies was not undertaken until 1973. It was a study of peanut excipients in vaccines.
- Vaccination Is Not Immunization by Tim O'Shea

As vaccines doubled between the 1980s and the 1990s, thousands of kids were now exhibiting peanut sensitivities, with many violent reactions, sometimes fatal. Following the next quantum increase in vaccines on the Mandated Schedule after 9/11, when the total shot up to 68 recommended vaccines, peanut allergy soon reached epidemic proportions: a million children: 1.5% of them.

Severe childhood allergies to peanuts, eggs and dairy directly linked to 'trace' ingredients in common vaccines

Consider this: one century ago, you couldn't find anyone allergic to peanuts, but now it's commonplace for parents to send EpiPens to school for the teacher and nurse to keep near to their children, just in case someone so much as opens a snack in the room that contains peanuts, or even if someone opens a food product that was so much as manufactured in "a facility that processes peanuts." What's wrong with the human body that it would go into anaphylactic shock from a seemingly harmless food ingredient that couldn't harm a soul a hundred years ago? Today, peanuts cause the most common severe food allergy reactions, and are the number one cause of death from food reactions, and for good reason: Peanut oil was never meant to be put in a syringe and injected into muscle tissue.

Flashback - ObamaCare architect: 'Stupidity' of voters helped bill pass

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a "lack of transparency" and the "stupidity of the American voter" helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

In a clip unearthed Sunday, Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber appears on a panel and discusses how the reform earned enough votes to pass.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn't know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

"Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. "And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass."

These diabetes pumps obey unencrypted radio commands – which is, frankly, f*%king stupid

Were a diabetes patient to be victimized by such an attack, he or she could be overdosed with insulin. A 2013 article in the journal Clinical Toxicology says insulin dosing errors represent one of the most dangerous medication issues because of the risk of hypoglycemia.

The Animas letter advises customers who are concerned about the flaw to disable the pump's radio as a precaution. Doing so, however, necessitates entering meter readings into the pump manually.

However, it told the BBC there had been no reported attacks and the risk was "extremely low".

"It would require technical expertise, sophisticated equipment and proximity to the pump," it said.

Salmon dog treats made by Plato and sold by Amazon.com found to contain alarmingly high levels of toxic mercury: Immediate recall urged

An ICP-MS analysis of Plato brand dog treats in my laboratory, CWC Labs, found alarmingly high levels of toxic mercury in salmon flavored products.

For the analysis, we tested 31 salmon and fish products sold as pet food or pet treats by the online retailer Amazon.com. No mercury was found in 29 out of the 31 products. Plato brand, however, showed alarmingly high mercury for two products:

• Salmon Strips Dog Treats (Plato)
• Thinkers Pacific Salmon Dog Treats (Plato)

DEODORANT WARNING: Aluminum salts found in popular antiperspirant products cause tumor growth

It has long been surmised that the aluminum compounds used in many antiperspirant deodorant products may be a cause of cancer. But a new study out of Switzerland confirms this to be true, showing that aluminum chloride, a common additive in antiperspirant deodorant that blocks moisture, exerts an estrogen-like effect that directly promotes the growth and spread of breast cancer cells.

This groundbreaking research from the University of Geneva looks at aluminum chloride's role in temporarily blocking sweat glands in the underarm. The toxic compound essentially lodges itself inside the skin in order to accomplish this, and over time builds up in breast tissue. Mimicking the effects of estrogen, aluminum chloride in the long term acts as fuel for the formation of cancer tumors, helping them to form and spread throughout the body.

Contagious outbreak strikes Flint, Genesee

Following a lead contamination crisis that has thrust Flint into the national spotlight, health officials now say the city has had more than half of the cases in a countywide outbreak of a highly contagious gastrointestinal illness.

State statistics show Genesee County, which includes the beleaguered city, has Michigan’s highest level of shigellosis. Genesee had 84 cases through September, while neighboring Saginaw County notched the second-largest county figure in Michigan: 47, according to the state records.

“We do know that more than one half of the Genesee County shigellosis cases have been in Flint,” said Jennifer Eisner, a spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

Could other people's pills be ending up in your tap water? Experts fear massive doses of prescription drugs return unaltered through our sewage

Every time you enjoy a cool, clear glass of tap water, you could be drinking a cocktail of other people’s second-hand medications.

That is thanks to the fact that today’s pharmaceuticals have been designed to be stable and long-lasting.

While that makes their doses reliably consistent, it also means that a substantial amount of the prescribed drugs that people take goes through their bodies and out into waste water.

Ultimately a proportion of these drugs pours unaltered through the sewage filtering system and re-enters our domestic supply.

EMBEDDED BEINGS: HOW WE BLENDED OUR MINDS WITH OUR DEVICES

Like life itself, technologies evolve. So it is that the telephone became the smartphone, that near-at-hand portal to the information superhighway. We have held these powerful devices in the palms of our hands for the better part of a decade now, but there is a palpable sense that in recent years something has shifted, that our relationship with technology is becoming more intimate. Some people worry that one day soon we might physically attach computer chips to our minds, but we don’t actually need to plug ourselves in: proximity is a red herring. The real issue is the seamless way in which we are already hybridising our cognitive space with our devices. In ways both quotidian and profound, they are becoming extensions of our minds.

Dutch saltwater potatoes offer hope for world's hungry

A small field on an island off the Netherlands' northern coast promises one answer to the problem of how to feed the world's ever-growing population: potatoes and other crops that grow in saltwater.

Every day, swathes of farmland somewhere in the world become unusable because of salty soil, but farmers on windswept Texel are finding solutions using traditional methods.

The team headed by farmer Mark van Rijsselberghe has planted around 30 types of potato and their approach is simple: anything that dies in the saline environment is abandoned, and anything that lives "we try to follow up on," said Van Rijsselberghe. "It's faster."

The experiments do not just target potatoes, but also look at how other crops grow in saltwater, including carrots, strawberries, onions and lettuce.

Fukushima Radiation Has Contaminated The Entire Pacific Ocean – And It’s Going To Get Worse

Waking Times Media

What was the most dangerous nuclear disaster in world history? Most people would say the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, but they’d be wrong. In 2011, an earthquake, believed to be an aftershock of the 2010 earthquake in Chile, created a tsunami that caused a meltdown at the TEPCO nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. Three nuclear reactors melted down and what happened next was the largest release of radiation into the water in the history of the world. Over the next three months, radioactive chemicals, some in even greater quantities than Chernobyl, leaked into the Pacific Ocean. However, the numbers may actually be much higher as Japanese official estimates have been proven by several scientists to be flawed in recent years.

“Completely Unsustainable”: Obamacare Destroys Middle Class, Rising As Much as 67%. Just in 2017.

Minnesota is in good company.

Like dozens of other states across the country, its government-mandated health care exchange is facing steeply-rising premiums for individual plans at levels that are both outrageous and completely impossible for the average Middle Class family to pay or keep up with.

And as future rates continue to rise – and it’s going to hurt a lot of people.

Because the system was designed to fail; or, because the government and health care lobbies have so little regard for the people that will actually have to live and die by their rules, the prices are skyrocketing by more than 50% in Minnesota – and by similarly absurd numbers in other states – and the exchange narrowly avoiding collapsing altogether in 2017.

Ch. 1: The Dangers from Nuclear Weapons: Myths and Facts

An all-out nuclear war between Russia and the United States would be the worst catastrophe in history, a tragedy so huge it is difficult to comprehend. Even so, it would be far from the end of human life on earth. The dangers from nuclear weapons have been distorted and exaggerated, for varied reasons. These exaggerations have become demoralizing myths, believed by millions of Americans.

 Myth: Fallout radiation from a nuclear war would poison the air and all parts of the environment. It would kill everyone. (This is the demoralizing message of On the Beach and many similar pseudoscientific books and articles.)

Experts Admit Zika Threat Fraud

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would provide $622 million to fight Zika virus. Yet, by White House estimates, this is "woefully inadequate." They've recommended directing $1.9 billion to fight this latest declared public health emergency

But mosquito experts are questioning the extent of emergency that actually exists. Chris Barker, Ph.D. a mosquito-borne virus researcher at the University of California, Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, told WebMD:2

"I think the risk for Zika actually setting up transmission cycles that become established in the continental U.S. is near zero.”

Barker expects Zika to go the way of other tropical diseases spread by mosquitoes, such as dengue fever and chikungunya, in the U.S. with perhaps small clusters of outbreaks in southern states and little activity elsewhere.

Minnesota Hiking Obamacare Premiums At Least 50% To Avoid ‘Collapse’

Minnesota will let health insurers increase their rates by at least 50 percent next year to protect the state’s Obamacare health insurance individual market from “collapse,” the state announced Friday.

The announcement came from Minnesota commerce commissioner Mike Rothman, who explained bluntly that the state’s individual market was barely staying afloat.

“The Commerce Department pursued every option within its power to avert a collapse this year,” said Rothman. “We succeeded in saving the market for 2017, with only Blue Cross leaving. But the rates insurers are charging will increase significantly to address their expected costs and the loss of federal reinsurance support.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight: do the people who cannot afford insurance after these stunning rate hikes just simply lose their health insurance, and then get penalized?!?

This absolutely should not be happening to Americans, and it bites, big-time.

New Study Blames Fracking For Spike In Oklahoma Earthquakes

For years, scientists and other have speculated that the spike in earthquakes in Oklahoma was linked to natural gas extraction via the controversial method of hydraulic fracturing. Hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking”, is hugely controversial due to its permanent destruction of groundwater and drinking water as well as its use of cancerous chemicals that often leak into rivers and streams. Yet, it seems that an increase in earthquakes is also another unpleasant side effect of fracking...

The Social Impacts of Drug Trafficking and Heroin in America

For eight years President Obama has been the commander-in-chief of U.S. armed forces in Afghanistan, a country that produces 90% of the opium in the world. ¹ With a stroke of his pen Obama could shut off most of the drug supply to 17 million heroin and opium addicts. Instead, his legacy is the same as George W. Bush. He allowed drugs to flow unimpeded out of Afghanistan for both terms of his presidency.

In a September 17, 2016 speech to the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, President Obama insisted that it would be a personal insult to him if African Americans do not vote for Hillary Clinton. He said that only she can continue his legacy of support for the black community.

Wait. A legacy of support for the black community. Really?

Obama administration may use obscure fund to pay billions to ACA insurers

The Obama administration is maneuvering to pay health insurers billions of dollars the government owes under the Affordable Care Act, through a move that could circumvent Congress and help shore up the president’s signature legislative achievement before he leaves office.

Justice Department officials have privately told several health plans suing over the unpaid money that they are eager to negotiate a broad settlement, which could end up offering payments to about 175 health plans selling coverage on ACA marketplaces, according to insurance executives and lawyers familiar with the talks.

The payments most likely would draw from an obscure Treasury Department fund intended to cover federal legal claims, the executives and lawyers said. This approach would get around a recent congressional ban on the use of Health and Human Services money to pay the insurers.

Final Descent Image from Rosetta Spacecraft

A new image of comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko was taken by the European Space Agency's (ESA) Rosetta spacecraft shortly before its controlled impact into the comet's surface on Sept. 30, 2016. Confirmation of the end of the mission arrived at ESA's European Space Operations Center in Darmstadt, Germany, at 4:19 a.m. PDT (7:19 a.m. EDT / 1:19 p.m. CEST) with the loss of signal upon impact.

The final descent gave Rosetta the opportunity to study the comet's gas, dust and plasma environment very close to its surface, as well as take very high-resolution images.

The image was taken from an altitude of 167 feet (51 meters) above the comet's surface by the spacecraft's OSIRIS wide-angle camera on Sept. 30.?The image scale is about two-tenths of an inch (5 millimeters) per pixel. The image measures about 9 feet (2.4 meters) across.

Mysterious outbreak at Orange County elementary school leaves 30 children and 10 staff members covered in bites and blisters

At least 30 children at an elementary school in California's affluent Orange County have come down with a mysterious rash - and no one knows why.

An outbreak of bites and blisters at Lake Forest Elementary School has left children itching through the night, and worried parents searching for answers.

Ten staff members at the school have also come down with the rashes and five new cases in the Saddleback Valley Unified School District have since been reported.

The outbreak is reportedly appearing as rashes, bites and welts, on anywhere from faces to arms, feet, backs, chests and waistlines, according to parents.

Mosquitoes, fleas, spiders, mites and mice have all been ruled out as the source, said Jared Dever of the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control.

Dever said bed bugs are also unlikely the cause, as they are noticeable and tend to strike when people are asleep or immobile, he told NBC Los Angeles.
