EDITORIAL: State should also shoulder blame for school testing meltdown

The Department of Education’s attempt to administer federally mandated assessments under new Common Core standards, which involved shifting all testing to computers, imploded last week when the Clark County School District halted the examinations because of constant system crashes. The online platform, administered by New Hampshire-based Measured Progress and UCLA’s Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium, never worked properly for very long. Students couldn’t enter answers, saw questions placed out of order and dealt with mid-exam interruptions. By the time the Clark County School District gave up, many students couldn’t log into the testing server.

THIS HACKER HAS IMPLANTED A CHIP IN HIS BODY TO EXPLOIT YOUR ANDROID PHONE

Plenty of people these days are prepared to augment their bodies with face furniture, piercings, rings and tattoos. But would you implant a chip in your hand to show how easy it is to exploit an Android phone? That’s what former US navy petty officer Seth Wahle did, in an attempt to demonstrate how business networks could be compromised.

The Collateral Damage of Mass Incarceration

A Story of Justice and Redemption is about getting closer to mass incarceration and extreme punishment in America. It is about how easily we condemn people in this country and the injustice we create when we allow fear, anger, and distance to shape the way we treat the most vulnerable among us. It's also about a dramatic period in our recent history, a period that indelibly marked the lives of millions of Americans - of all races, ages, and sexes - and the American psyche as a whole.

Chemo brain is real: Researchers find first evidence cancer treatment can lead to 'chronically wandering mind'

Researchers have found the first clear evidence that 'chemo brain' where patients find it difficult to concentrate after undergoing chemotherapy, is real.

The new research shows that chemotherapy can lead to excessive mind wandering and an inability to concentrate.

The negative cognitive effects of the cancer treatment have long been suspected, but the study is the first to explain why patients have difficulty paying attention.

AIPAC Sponsored “Fast Track Measures” on Behalf of Israel: Congressional Legislation Targets BDS Initiatives

AIPAC-promoted/anti-BDS measures were attached as amendments to House and Senate fast track legislation introduced earlier in April.

Its purpose is to ram through Congress Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) bills global justice advocates call NAFTA on steroids – stealth corporate coup d’etats.

The House measure “discourage(s) politically motivated actions to boycott, divest from, or sanction Israel and seek(s) the elimination of politically motivated non-tariff barriers on Israeli goods, services, or other commerce imposed on the State of Israel.”

UK’s Cameron defends 2014 Israeli war on Gaza

Cameron said in an interview with the UK-based Jewish Chronicle on Tuesday that Tel Aviv had a right to “defend” itself when it began its war on Gaza last July.

Israel started airstrikes against the besieged Palestinian territory in early July 2014 and later expanded its military campaign with a ground invasion. The war ended in late August that year.

Nearly 2,200 Palestinians, including 577 children, were killed in Israel’s 50-day onslaught and over 11,100 others, including nearly 3,380 children, 2,088 women and 410 elderly people, were injured. Tens of Israelis were also killed during the war.

Cameron said it was “important to speak out” about standing by Israeli.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except that Israel launched the attack against Gaza over three murdered Israeli teenagers in the West Bank, which Israel blamed on Hamas even though local police said there was no evidence to suggest Hamas was involved.

Soros Group Advocates Violence Against Cops in Baltimore

The article highlights a story from The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates, in which the author argues that protestor violence is an apt response to the violence perpetrated by police on residents of Baltimore throughout the years.

When nonviolence is preached by the representatives of the state, while the state doles out heaps of violence to its citizens, it reveals itself to be a con. And none of this can mean that rioting or violence is “correct” or “wise,” any more than a forest fire can be “correct” or “wise.” Wisdom isn’t the point tonight. Disrespect is. In this case, disrespect for the hollow law and failed order that so regularly disrespects the community.

In the wake of the destruction, other leftist publications such as Salon also got on the violence-against-police bandwagon, running a headline that reads, “Baltimore’s violent protesters are right: Smashing police cars is a legitimate political strategy,” which called non-violence a sometimes “futile tactic.”

Clinton Foundation Failed to Disclose 1,100 Foreign Donations

Hillary Clinton’s presidential run is prompting new scrutiny of the Clintons’ financial and charitable affairs—something that’s already proved problematic for the Democratic frontrunner, given how closely these two worlds overlap. Last week, the New York Times examined Bill Clinton’s relationship with a Canadian mining financier, Frank Giustra, who has donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and sits on its board. Clinton, the story suggests, helped Giustra’s company secure a lucrative uranium-mining deal in Kazakhstan and in return received “a flow of cash” to the Clinton Foundation, including previously undisclosed donations from the company’s chairman totaling $2.35 million.

Rubio Amendment Set to Kill Iran Nuclear Deal

While the Senate’s upcoming Iran bill, aiming to give Congress veto power over any pact negotiated by the P5+1, already put the deal in serious jeopardy, a new amendment to it proposed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R – FL) seems to be the silver bullet that will kill any chance of the deal.

The Rubio Amendment would require that any nuclear deal with Iran include an explicit public endorsement from Iran of Israel’s status as a “Jewish state.”

Global warming propagandists make "breathtaking" adjustments to arctic temperature record

Paul Homewood, the blogger who noticed the discrepancies with the Paraguay temperature records, has now turned his attention to the Arctic region. His conclusion after studying the charts before and after is that the scale and geographic range of these adjustments is "breathtaking."

In nearly every Arctic station from Greenland in the West to Siberia in the East, the data has been adjusted to make the warm period in the 1930s look cooler than it actually was. This, of course, has the effect of making the Twentieth Century warming look much more dramatic than the raw data would suggest.

Will this scandalous apparent evidence-tampering ever get much coverage in the mainstream media? It certainly ought to. Think about it: if Homewood (and Anthony Watts and Steven Goddard, et al) are correct, then what it essentially means is that the entire global warming scare has been sold to us on a false prospectus.

Medical-drug destruction of life, by the numbers

By Jon Rappoport

I’ll just give you the horrific quotes now and discuss the source afterwards:

“…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and Europe.

“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about 20 times more [6.6 million per year] hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year] medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others.

“Deaths from overmedication, errors, and self-medication would increase these figures.”

In other words, the 330,000 deaths per year, the 6.6 million hospitalizations per year, and the 80 million “medically minor” problems per year…all of this stems from CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED medicines...

How Long Would the US Navy Survive in a Shooting War?

Back in the 70s, Admiral Rickover, the “father of nuclear navy,” had to answer the question before the U.S. Senate: “How long would our aircraft carriers survive in a battle against the Russian Navy?” His response caused disillusionment: “Two or three days before they sink, maybe a week if they stay in the harbor.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The actual weakness of our naval forces was hammered home by two recent incidents. The first involved the USS Donald Cook, an Aegis ship, which in theory can detect, track, and engage 90 aerial targets simultaneously, which was totally paralyzed by the electronic warfare systems of a single Russian aircraft. The Aegis system is the main air-defense system for a carrier battle group. If it is not working, missiles will find their main target; the carrier itself. As a side note, another Aegis ship, the USS Chancellorsville, was put out of commission for six months and suffered $30 million in damage when struck by one of its own drones!

The second incident happened during war games in the Atlantic in which the French submarine Saphir successfully penetrated a carrier battle group centered on the USS Theodore Roosevelt and succeeded in "sinking" not only the carrier but several of the screening ships without being detected, not even by the Los Angeles class attack sub that was part of the defensive screen. Coupled with the known problems with the Independence class Littoral combat ships, the F-22, the F-35, etc. it is clear that US weapons are visually impressive, very expensive, and as hopelessly out of touch with the reality of war in the 21st century as traditional battleships were in WW2.

Worst fire since 1992 getting close to Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine

According to him, about 400 hectares of forest are engulfed in flames. "At 18.30 the situation with forest fires around Chernobyl has deteriorated. The flame is again engulfing the forest at the approaches to Chernobyl NPP. Upper level fire and sharp gusts of wind created a serious threat of fire spreading 20 km away from the Chernobyl NPP", - reported Avakov.

Because of the fire in Chernobyl the Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk immediately arrived at the area and convened the Commission on Emergency Situations. The national guard and Interior Ministry units have been called up.

"Yatsenyuk and officers of the Emergency Situations Service are working on site, in the vicinity of the line of fire," - writes the Minister of the Interior.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem are those plutonium burial pits. where Chernobyl disposed of the spent reactor fuel rods. They are highly radioactive and highly flammable. If they catch fire, the resulting spread of radiation will dwarf the original Chernobyl disaster!

Apr 29 08:36

This will make the world sorry it put a CIA death squad in charge of chernobyl

The fire encompasses the plutonium burial areas. According to State Emergency Service (GSChS) the fire blazes already near the village. It is 13 km from the station. People are close to panic. The Deputy Director on scientific work of the Museum of Chernobyl, Anna Royal, said:

The fire had already moved in close to Chernobyl, the radioactive waste burial site. There is one of the most polluted places. Nearby the burial of radioactive waste. Plutonium is one of the most dangerous elements that infects the haematopoietic system of a person. As long as nobody touches it, this element is not dangerous. But if in the street the wind and the fire, plutonium particles can rise a meter and be transported over long distances.

Meanwhile, as reported by the interior Minister Arsen Avakov, to extinguish the fire involved the national guard. In Kiev, there are rumors that some deputies of the Verkhovna Rada and members of the government have taken out of town for their families.

181 Clinton Foundation donors who lobbied Hillary's State Department

The size and scope of the symbiotic relationship between the Clintons and their donors is striking. At least 181 companies, individuals, and foreign governments that have given to the Clinton Foundation also lobbied the State Department when Hillary Clinton ran the place, according to a Vox analysis of foundation records and federal lobbying disclosures.

The following chart shows entities that donated to the foundation and lobbied the State Department during Hillary Clinton's tenure. The totals include funding from both the corporate and charitable arms of listed companies (the Gates and Walton foundations are named to illustrate that point). The chart does not account for contributions made by executives, and it may omit some companies who made contributions or lobbied through subsidiaries.

An iPad glitch grounded several dozen American Airlines planes

American Airlines flights experienced significant delays this evening after pilots’ iPads—which the airline uses to distribute flight plans and other information to the crew—abruptly crashed. “Several dozen” flights were affected by the outage, according to a spokesperson for the airline.

“The pilot told us when they were getting ready to take off, the iPad screens went blank, both for the captain and copilot, so they didn’t have the flight plan,” Toni Jacaruso, a passenger on American flight #1654 from Dallas to Austin, told Quartz.

“The pilot came on and said that his first mate’s iPad powered down unexpectedly, and his had too, and that the entire 737 fleet on American had experienced the same behavior,” said passenger Philip McRell, who was also on flight #1654. “It seemed unprecedented and very unfamiliar to the pilots.”

Litvinenko Wasn't Poisoned by Putin. He Was Likely Smuggling the Polonium That Killed Him

There are many things wrong with the “Putin did it” story. For one there is no motive, even with Litvinenko being a critic of Russia, he was no threat whatsoever to Putin. The man worked with Chechen terrorists and the Israeli-Russian oligarchs. But just assuming that there was a sufficient motive to kill him, think about this: Why would Russia use a very rare, very expensive, and easily traceable radioactive substance to kill him instead of some cheap poison or just shooting him? Why risk smuggling radioactive material into the UK which is an act of war?

Aid flights to Yemen blocked after Saudi Arabian jets bomb airport runway

Aircraft belonging to the Saudi Arabian-led coalition carried out the bombings on Tuesday afternoon to prevent an Iranian plane from landing in the Yemeni capital, a spokesman for the coalition said.

Brigadier General Ahmed Asseri said the plane had not coordinated with coalition authorities and the pilot had ignored a warning to turn back. The bombing of the runway made it unusable for planned aid flights, he said.

Boycott to intensify after Israeli ban on South African minister’s trip to Palestine

Last week Israel denied entry to South African higher education minister Blade Nzimande. The minister had intended to travel to Ramallah to discuss academic cooperation with institutions in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

A spokesperson for the ministry told South African media that the justification Israel gave was that Nzimande is “one of the most vocal anti-Israeli government ministers.”

A broad alliance of South African civil society organizations responded Monday to the Israeli ban by promising to intensify its program of boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel. They presented a new plan of action at a press conference Monday, South Africa’s Freedom Day.

Hospital bombed by Israel “back in business” but not rebuilt, says Gaza doctor

Last July, during Israel’s 51-day attack on the Gaza Strip that killed approximately 2,220 Palestinian women, men and children, the Israeli army bombed and shelled homes, offices, schools, infrastructure, United Nations shelters, hospitals and clinics.

In a series of airstrikes, Israeli forces completely leveled the al-Wafa rehabilitation hospital, the only one of its kind in Gaza.

Al-Wafa serves the needs of the disabled and the elderly, many needing round-the-clock care and monitoring. Since al-Wafa was bombed to rubble, medical staff have been treating their patients in a secondary location and are raising funds to rebuild the main hospital.

Using Cash? Prove You’re Not a Terrorist

By Jeff Thomas

Recently, France decided to crack down on those people who make cash payments and withdrawals and who hold small bank accounts. The reason given was, not surprisingly, to “fight terrorism,” the handy catchall justification for any new restriction governments wish to impose on their citizens. French Finance Minister Michel Sapin stated at the time, “[T]errorism feeds on fraud, money laundering, and petty trafficking.” ...

Do you need to make a deposit on a car? That might be suspect. Did you just deposit a dividend you received? It might be a payment from a terrorist organisation. Planning a holiday and need some cash? You might need to be investigated for terrorism.

And France is not alone...

"Fast Track" Flouts the Constitution

On Saturday, just a few days after the president accused her of spreading "misinformation," about the TPP trade deal I like to call SHAFTA, the Massachusetts senator hit back hard in a letter to the White House.

While the Obama administration has, she pointed out, given 500 or so corporate lobbyists inside access to TPP negotiations, it has left the public completely in the dark.

In fact, as Senator Warren went on to write, "It is currently illegal for the press, experts, advocates, or the general public to review the text of this agreement. And while ... Members of Congress may 'walk over ... and read the text of the agreement' -- as we have done -- [we] are prohibited by law from discussing the specifics of that text in public."

That's right -- members of Congress, the elected representatives of "We the People" can't talk to the public about the biggest trade treaty in US history.

Turning America into a Battlefield: A Blueprint for Locking Down the Nation

A standing army—something that propelled the early colonists into revolution—strips the American people of any vestige of freedom. How can there be any semblance of freedom when there are tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead?

It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force. Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: the U.S. Constitution.

Police’s “breaking story” on Freddie Gray’s recent spinal surgery – insult and mockery

It’s understandable and not surprising that police and their sympathizers would want to grab at straws to distance these officers from the terrible fate Freddie Gray suffered at their hands, but this is truly feeble and pathetic.

Even if it’s true that Freddie Gray had a car accident that gave him some whiplash, that does nothing to absolve the police of responsibly for his death from a severed spine, or explain why another man died ten years from the same injuries at the hands of the same police force.

But according to them, ‘Freddie should have stayed home, instead of going out to sell drugs.’ Never mind that there was never any evidence that he was engaged in such activities.

The Era of Wealthy Entitlement

Because of irresponsible reporting by conservative sources, many Americans have been led to believe that social programs are bankrupting our nation. The mainstream media fawningly concurs, with statements like this from USA Today: “The massive deficits…[and] chronic underfunding…are largely the result of Washington’s habit of committing too much money to benefit programs.” States are now beginning to attack imagined safety net abuses, such as the use of food stamp funds to pay for fortune tellers and pleasure cruises.

The Raisin Administrative Committee Strikes Back!

With an annual budget now approaching $4 trillion, it’s not surprising that the US government has quite a few departments that most of us know nothing about.

And with a budget deficit of $486 billion projected for 2015, you would hope that Congress is diligently striving to abolish agencies whose functions are no longer needed. Perhaps that’s what Congress had in mind in 1996, when it voted to disband the “Board of Tea Examiners.” For nearly a century, this group of tea tasters met twice a year to inspect tea to determine if it was of a high enough quality to be sold in the US. But for nearly two decades, US tea drinkers have somehow survived without it.

Israel, the bomb and Western double-think

Israel’s nuclear arsenal has been common knowledge for decades, partly thanks to whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu, who is still denied his freedom despite having served a sentence of 18 years.

The Center for Nonproliferation Studies have reported that Israel probably has up to 300 warheads – about the same as the UK. These include intercontinental-range thermonuclear weapons and artillery-delivered, enhanced-radiation tactical weapons ('neutron bombs').

Nuclear facilities in Israel include the nuclear reactor at Dimona in the Negev where Vanunu worked, nuclear storage bases at Eilabun near the Sea of Galilee and the national weapons testing laboratory at Soreq, south of Tel Aviv.

Israel has always refused to confirm or deny their existence: what Avner Cohen, author of Israel and the bomb, calls a policy of "Don’t ask, don’t tell."
Naturally, no inspection of these facilities by the International Atomic Energy Authority has been allowed.

A Better Way to Read the First Amendment

But Neuborne's main thesis is not the worship of James Madison, and he merely suffers the same blindness to war as the rest of his society, believing, as he writes, that the world is "dependent on the anchor of American power" (whether the world wants it or not). While legalizing murder may not be a problem for Neuborne's view of the Constitution, legalizing bribery is. And that's where Madison's Music becomes useful. Each time the U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of plutocracy it is ruling against precedents, common sense, basic decency, and a coherent and plausible reading of the Bill of Rights that reads the various amendments as aimed at strengthening democracy.

The War on Cash: Transparently Totalitarian

While the forces pushing for centralization of power have been prevailing for decades, they haven’t won a total victory yet. Technologies that empower the individual and that tend toward decentralization—including the Internet, encryption, 3D printing, and cryptocurrencies—offer a powerful ray of hope, reasons to be optimistic about the future.

So the tug of war between the collectivists and the rest of us continues.

One thing that would tip the scales heavily in favor of the collectivists would be victory in the War on Cash. Their goal is to eliminate the use of hand-to-hand currency, so that governments can document, control, and tax everything.

It’s exactly like what Ron Paul said: “The cashless society is the IRS’s dream: total knowledge of, and control over, the finances of every single American.”

Police And National Guard Invade Baltimore Streets

Apr 29 07:57

Baltimore, and America's double standard on violence

Riots are always an interesting time to observe the mainstream press, because it's often when the mask of "objectivity" slips, and anchors and pundits slip into blatant editorializing. On CNN, Wolf Blitzer was stunned and outraged that the police weren't there to protect property. Don Lemon grilled the Maryland governor and Baltimore mayor over their insufficient aggressiveness in confronting the riot. Even David Simon, the creator of The Wire, told rioters to "go home."

Perhaps the best summary of this worldview came from Howard Kurtz, the media correspondent for Fox News, who wrote a tweet simultaneously bemoaning the rioting while implicitly absolving the police of wrongdoing for Gray's death:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am glad the violence is declining and was not echoed in other cities. That being said, let us not forget that the people of Baltimore and indeed all of the nation have a legitimate concern about the out-of-control police brutality committed by police of all colors against Americans of all colors. Hillary is already grandstanding this incident demanding a bond of trust and respect between the people and the police, but trust must be earned, not demanded, and respect is a two-way street. The police must show they respect the American citizen and in particular our rights under the Constitution before they can expect respect back.

Baltimore Unrest: Police Credit Curfew as Overnight Violence Subsides

Baltimore police credited an overnight curfew with helping to restore some level of order in a community shaken by violence and unrest.

Law enforcement fired smoke canisters and pepper balls after some protesters defied the curfew, which went into effect at 10 p.m. and continued until 5 a.m. By midnight, 10 arrests had been made, Police Commissioner Anthony Batts said.

"Curfew is, in fact, working," Batts said. "The city is stable. We'd like to keep it that way."

With a Bang or a Whimper (How the Financial World Resets)

The global financial world is increasingly unstable and approaching a reset. A few reasons why:

Global debt is approximately $200 Trillion and rapidly increasing. Debts are either paid or defaulted. Default seems likely – either directly or via hyperinflation.

Global derivatives are, depending on who is counting, around $1,000 Trillion. Derivatives were at the center of the 2008 crash and are even more dangerous now.

Speculation, debt, and “printing currencies” have been excessive in many countries. Other similar periods of excessive speculation were 1929 and 2000. “Printing currency” has never solved problems.

So how does the financial world, as we know it, reset? Let’s speculate!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Theory" The money-junkies order the government to confiscate all the assets of the people and hand them over! From then on, non-money-junkies are only allowed to live, work, and travel by the leave of the new feudal lordships.

Saudi-led coalition bombs Yemen airport to prevent Iranian plane from landing

Jets of a Saudi Arabian-led coalition bombed Sanaa airport on Tuesday to prevent an Iranian plane from landing in the war-torn country, Yemeni officials and Iranian state media reported.

A runway, a civilian aircraft and part of a terminal building at Sanaa international airport were destroyed after being struck by missiles.

The attack forced two Iranian planes that had flown into Yemen over neighboring Oman to turn back, according to a Yemeni official.

"The planes were carrying medical aid and entered Yemeni airspace this morning," the official told Middle East Eye via Skype.

Splitting Iraq: US Military Bill Would Redefine Kurds, Sunni Militias as Separate Country

In an attempt to limit the prospects for overseas meddling, US law requires foreign military aid to be delivered direct to host countries, as opposed to just any old armed faction the US wants to throw weapons at.

That might seem like a straightforward rule, but House Republicans are seeing a pretty straightforward way to circumvent it, announcing their intention to declare Iraqi Kurdistan, as well as some Iraqi Sunni Arab militias, as “countries” of their own for the sake of aid shipments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes those smaller countries easier to "manage" which has been on both the US agenda for Iraq and Iran all along.

Police Brutality Is Not Skin Deep

Every day a new story comes out about something awful a police officer has done. And 99% of the time, nobody seems to care. The death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland is just the latest in a constant barrage of public atrocities committed by men in government uniforms. It is not an isolated incident, nor are its circumstances unique, yet much of the public has again been polarized into their usual political factions – the dusty "obey the law and you won't get hurt" conservatives and the chronically offended "check your riot-shaming privilege" progressives.

But for anyone serious about stopping cops from shooting unarmed men in the back, throwing grenades into baby cribs, tasering eight-year-olds and punching women, including a 9-month pregnant Air Force veteran, the common thread in all of these tragedies should be examined at its roots. It is not racism, patriarchy, lack of funding, or poor training. No, the source of all this brutality is a massively invasive police state.

BOMBSHELL: Scripps says Arctic Sea Ice may return, forecasts of loss based on ‘oversimplified arguments’

Scenarios of a sea ice tipping point leading to a permanently ice-free Arctic Ocean were based on oversimplified arguments.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The argument was, "Tell everyone the arctic will be ice free soon or you lose your funding!"

All glibness aside, this illustrates the problem with the claims that computer models prove human-caused global warming. Computer models cannot prove anything. They merely forecast the outcome of the assumptions programmed into them. If the assumptions are wrong, or do not include all possible factors (as they are now admitting was the case) the results of the computer run will not match what is going on in the real world.

None of the computer models used by Al Gore's minions accounted for variations in solar activity and no climate model can account for the volcanic activity on the floors of the world's oceans because nobody knows how many are down there. Even on land the known volcanoes can still behave unexpectedly as the sudden activity at Calbuco in Chile and Kilauea here in Hawaii demonstrate. Every computer model uses a limited set of assumptions and the universal unprogrammed assumption that no other factors will influence the outcome!

Both committees approved the amendments unanimously. Each committee then approved its version of the trade bill on a split vote, with Republicans in favor and Democrats divided for and against.

Supreme Court to Hear Oklahoma Inmates’ Lethal Injection Case

The case, Glossip v. Gross, was brought by three convicted murderers in Oklahoma who argue that the state’s recently adopted three-drug combination violates the Eighth Amendment because it poses a significant risk of terrible suffering.

Oklahoma and several other states have turned to the sedative, midazolam, as the initial agent in lethal injections because manufacturers in Europe and the United States have refused to sell them the barbiturates that were traditionally used to render prisoners unconscious.

But midazolam was implicated in three prolonged executions last year in which prisoners appeared to suffer.

From Amar Singh with love: Hillary campaign under fire over $5 mn donation to Clinton Foundation

A new book has raked up again the claim that former Samajwadi Party leader Amar Singh may have been behind a generous $5 million donation to the Clinton Foundation in 2008, and possibly acted as a conduit.

The allegations, which were first levelled against Singh in 2008 in a New York Times report, have resurfaced after a book raised questions over the donation made a individual named Amar Singh to the Clinton Foundation in 2008, around the same time Congress was debating the Indo-US civil nuclear deal.

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.

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].

The tragic death of hundreds of refugees last week in the Mediterranean Sea has once again brought to light the deadly hypocrisy of Western leaders and their mainstream press. Omissions and distortions are disconnecting the catastrophic event from its roots, preventing the real culprits from being publicly exposed. Were the victims Libyan “migrants seeking a better life in Europe,” or rather refugees fleeing a war zone created and fueled by Western powers?
