PABLO ESCOBAR’S HIPPOS KEEP HAVING SEX AND NO ONE IS SURE HOW TO STOP THEM

When drug kingpin Pablo Escobar was killed by the Colombian National Police in 1993, he left a vast and bloody legacy in his wake. The Medellín Cartel boss is regarded as one of the most prolific criminals in history, and is notorious for having built a cocaine-fueled empire on the bodies of thousands of murdered individuals. But El Patrón is also remembered by more than 50 hippopotamuses (Hippopotamus amphibius) that currently roam free near his palatial estate, Hacienda Nápoles. Escobar’s captive hippos were never meant for the rivers and estuaries of northern Colombia, yet since his death they’ve behaved as wild animals are wont to: by vigorously breeding and multiplying, slowly establishing themselves as the largest invasive species in the world.

VA Hospitals Will Continue to Reject Medical Marijuana

Although Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner recently signed a bill into law allowing patients suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to participate in the state’s medical marijuana program, reports indicate that the brass overseeing Veterans Affairs Hospitals throughout the state will not allow any of its physicians to discuss the herb with patients suffering from this disorder.

Last week, just days after a Cook County Judge ordered the state to include PTSD as a qualified condition under the state’s medical marijuana program, Governor Rauner swooped in and put his signature on a bill, which received overwhelming support this year in the General Assembly, expanding the Illinois medical marijuana pilot program to allow patients with PTSD and terminal illnesses to purchase cannabis from their friendly neighborhood dispensary. Rauner’s signature also guarantees the program will continue to function until at least 2020.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is, indeed, a testament to just how firmly the pharmaceutical-industrial complex has their claws firmly gripping the really sensitive areas of the Federal Government's "tender regions".

It's all about the money.

What the Pharmaceutical industry should do is is invest in creating some better pot, to get a decent market share of the business, instead of preventing people desperately in need of the plant's benefits from getting it.

This move, on the part of the VA, is making itself, and Big Pharma look collectively like the nether end of a donkey.

Activists Expose Monsanto’s Senate Lackeys Minutes Before DARK Act Vote

By Nadia Prupis

Just before a controversial genetically modified (GM or GMO) labeling bill came up for a cloture vote in the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, food and consumer advocates dropped over $2,000 on the chamber floor in a symbolic protest against what they are calling the “Deny Americans the Right to Know” (DARK) Act.

The action aimed to highlight the fact that senators who took money from biotechnology giants like Monsanto are voting against majority public opinion, as recent polls have found that roughly 90 percent of Americans want labels on GMO foods...

Three astronauts blast off for ISS in upgraded Soyuz craft

Three astronauts blasted off into the early morning sky in an upgraded Soyuz spacecraft from Russia's Baikonur cosmodrome Thursday, heading towards the International Space Station.

First-time astronauts Kathleen Rubins of NASA and Takuya Onishi of the Japanese space agency set off for a four-month mission at the ISS with Russian cosmonaut Anatoly Ivanishin at around 0136 GMT.

"All is well on board!" said mission control in comments relayed by NASA TV, which broadcast footage of the launch in Kazakhstan.

Footage also showed Ivanishin and Onishi giving each other fist bumps to celebrate the successful launch.

PA: URGENT ALERT Allegheny County Health Department trying to MANDATE HPV VACCINE for all 7th grade boys and girls. Take Action!

In what appears to be an unprecedented move, the Allegheny County Health Department (Pittsburgh) is considering a MANDATE that would REQUIRE all 7th grade boys and girls to receive the HPV VACCINE before being admitted to school. Given that the HPV (Human papillomavirus) is sexually transmitted, not contagious in a school setting, and already available to anyone who wants it, this proposed mandate is totally unnecessary for the health of school children.

WHY THE WAR ON DRUGS IS A HUGE FAILURE

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The war on drugs has been an epic fail because it has been engineered to fail.

The little country of Portugal has been an absolute trail-blazer on this issue.

What they did was completely decririminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, then urge counseling to get off the drugs; that approach worked, and continues to work today. Fewer kids are getting hooked, and it's all good.

Of course the intelligent, rational thing to do would be to decririminalise all drugs, and make them available by prescription, taking the profit motive out of the equation.

Of course, THAT...would be logical.

Groundbreaking Study Shows Cannabis Can Counter Alzheimer’s Disease

By Justin Gardner

As the baby boom generation begins to reach age 65 and beyond, the number of people with Alzheimer’s disease is escalating rapidly. This debilitating condition causes deterioration of thinking skills and memory, leading to the inability to recognize loved ones or carry out basic tasks. It is the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.

About 5.4 million Americans now live with Alzheimer’s disease, and that number is expected to rise to 13.8 million by 2050 if no prevention or cure is developed. Fortunately, medical research is beginning to understand the mechanisms of the disease, which is paving the way for treatments...

Court Strikes Down Obama Health Care Rule on Insurance Standards

A federal appeals court has ruled that consumers must be allowed to buy certain types of health insurance that do not meet the stringent standards of the Affordable Care Act, deciding that the administration had gone beyond the terms of federal law.

The court struck down a rule issued by the Obama administration that barred the sale of such insurance as a separate stand-alone product.

14th Obamacare co-op collapses

Connecticut's taxpayer-funded Obamacare health insurer will close due to minimal federal funding, becoming the 14th consumer-operated and oriented plan to shut down.

The state's insurance regulator took over HealthyCT, the state's Obamacare co-op, on Tuesday due to financial problems. The co-op, created to spur more competition on Obamacare's marketplaces, is the 14th out of 23 nationwide to shut down since they were created in 2014.

Now only nine co-ops remain.

BANNED “Man Made Epidemic” Film Available Online

Last month, we reported on “Man Made Epidemic”, a European production shot in the UK, Germany, Belgium and Italy, which experienced the same censorship and vilification as “Vaxxed” with Tribeca. The film was also pulled from a famous film festival in London a few weeks ago because of intense outside pressure.

We believe that “Man Made Epidemic” is a timely and important film that contributes to the discussion regarding vaccine safety.

Freedom Vs. Slavery – The Political Spectrum

A little Political Science! By the way tyranny and slavery are synonymous.
Freedom vs. Slavery – The Political Spectrum

The Political Spectrum – Left Wing vs. Right Wing is a lie designed to confuse you about what freedom is.

The Left includes: progressives, social liberals, social democrats, socialists, communists and anarchists.

The Right includes: conservatives, reactionaries, monarchists, nationalists and fascists.

SLAVERY is on both ends of the spectrum.
Both the “Left” and the “Right” promote slavery and tyranny.

SLAVERY vs. FREEDOM
A more accurate chart puts SLAVERY on one side and FREEDOM on the other.

The True Political Spectrum

Very simple.On the Right We have freedom.On the left we have tyranny.
Fascism,Communism,Socialism,Nazism,Monarchy ect.,ect. are on the left.
Freedom is on the right end.

They interviewed me, then refused to publish the interview

Some months ago, out of the blue, I was contacted by a major press outlet. I’m withholding the name of the outlet to protect my contact. I was asked, would I do an interview about Zika right away? I said yes. I was emailed a list of questions. I answered them.

At length.

The interview was relayed to editors.

Then, nothing.

Then, more nothing.

And then they spiked the interview. Too hot to handle.

They didn’t tell me they weren’t going to publish the interview. I had to ask. Then they said no.

Here are my answers to the interview questions about Zika and related matters. I’m omitting the questions—again, to protect my contact.

FDA Commissioner Sued For Hiding Data That Led To Deaths Of Over 5000 People

Former FDA commissioner, Margaret Hamburg, is the subject of a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. And the details are as grisly as the plaintiff’s allegations. Hamburg is being accused of using her position of power to gain approval for a dangerous antibiotic called Levaquin in order to help her husband’s hedge fund benefit financially. The hedge fund was deeply seeded with Johnson & Johnson, makers of Levaquin. According to The Daily Caller, “Both Alkermes and Johnson & Johnson stock value increased significantly during Hamburg’s tenure,…”

The lawsuit opens with: “This Amended Complaint sets forth allegations that involve a conspiracy by Defendants, each and every one of them, to reap large financial returns by failing to disclose to Plaintiffs and the public at large the full extent of the devastating, life-threatening, and deadly effects of a highly dangerous pharmaceutical drug named Levaquin,…”

Nobel laureate GMO promoter presided over firm that lost billions

The letter from over 100 Nobel laureates attacking Greenpeace for opposing GMOs in general and GMO golden rice in particular has become mired in a new scandal.

Last week the publicity stunt was shown to have links to Monsanto. Representatives of NGOs – including Greenpeace, the subject of the laureates’ attack – who tried to attend the press conference about the letter were astonished to find their way blocked by none other than Jay Byrne, Monsanto’s notorious former communications director and president of the PR company V-Fluence, which is known to work for Monsanto. He is on record as having identified Greenpeace as a target for attack as far back as 2010.

Knowledgeable critics also denounced the letter on the grounds that most of the signatories had no expertise in relevant fields such as toxicology, agriculture, or risk assessment.

Are YOU eating cloned meat? It might be more common than you think, say scientists

Two decades after Scotland's Dolly the sheep became the first cloned mammal, consumers may well wonder whether they are drinking milk or eating meat from cookie-cutter cows or their offspring.

The simple answer is 'probably'.

But the fact is, there is no way to know for sure, the experts have said.

This is the case even in Europe, which has come closer to banning livestock cloning than anywhere else in the world.

'Depression pills made me unfit to be a mother': Documentary maker Katinka Newman reveals all about her breakdown

After a 20-minute interview, he pronounced me depressed and prescribed an antidepressant drug, escitalopram.

In my attempt to run away from my problems, albeit in a small way, I’d started a descent into hell.

For I suffered a reaction to the drug that turned me into a self-harming, hallucinating, suicidal wreck.

But doctors failed to realise my symptoms were caused by an adverse drug reaction, so they put me on more pills.

Escitalopram is one of the SSRI class of antidepressants (the best-known is Prozac). They are designed to raise the levels of the ‘feelgood’ chemical serotonin in the brain.

China to ‘eavesdrop’ on alien life with giant, multimillion dollar radio telescope

China has completed construction of the world’s largest radio telescope, which required the resettlement of more than 9,000 people. It will be used to hunt for signs of alien life in deep space.

The Single-Aperture Spherical Radio Telescope (FAST), as it is known, is an enormous dish made up of 4,450 reflector panels with a diameter of half a kilometer and an area the size of around 30 football pitches, according to the Xinhua news agency.

It was completed in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province on Sunday, when the last reflector was fitted into a natural bunker, which is situated among the mountains of Pingtang County.

This 'Hourglass' Liquid Battery Runs on Gravity

Liquid flow batteries were first developed back in the 1970s, so called because the materials used for the positive and negative electrodes are in liquid form, separated by a membrane. Any number of chemical compounds can be used, except instead of solid slabs, the battery uses tiny particles in a liquid slurry. But even liquid flow batteries typically require complicated systems involving storage tanks, pumps, and valves. That’s costly to maintain, since there are far more possibilities for leaks or failures.

So Yet-Ming Chang and his MIT colleagues came up with an alternative design concept for liquid flow batteries—one that simply relies upon gravity as a pump mechanism, substantially reducing the complexity of the entire system, and hence the overall cost.

The device looks more like a windowpane than a traditional hourglass, but the concept is the same: the slurry containing the particles flows from one end to the other via a narrow channel.

Mechanical Engineer Sends Open Letter to Main Defender of the 9/11 Official Account, Zden?k Bažant

On June 19, 2016, Tony Szamboti, a mechanical engineer who has studied the World Trade Center collapses intensively for the past ten years, sent an open letter to Northwestern civil engineering Professor Zden?k Bažant. Dr. Bažant is the author of four articles in the Journal of Engineering Mechanics that purport to explain why the lower sections of the WTC Twin Towers provided no discernible resistance to the falling upper sections.

Dear Professor Bazant,

This open letter is being sent to you to request that you correct your four papers on the collapse of the WTC Towers, which were published by the Journal of Engineering Mechanics.

In these papers, the values used for the below three items:

The velocity of the descending upper section of the building
The mass of the descending upper section of the building
The column strength of the underlying story at the impact floor

have been shown in the intervening years to be significantly unrepresentative of the actual situation concerning the North Tower (WTC 1) at the time of its collapse.

Scottish Fireman Resigns in Wake of Anti-9/11 Truth Pressure

A few years later, Maxwell learned of Tony Rooke, a filmmaker who was seeking funding to produce a documentary about 9/11, and he made a donation. Upon finding out that Maxwell was a fireman, Rooke asked him to make an appearance in the film. Maxwell agreed.

The main focus of Incontrovertible is World Trade Center Building 7 (WTC 7), which collapsed — purportedly from fires — late in the afternoon of 9/11. Once the film was released, Maxwell gave copies of the DVD to friends, firefighters in his unit, policemen in the street, and military personnel. He was hopeful that once they realized the facts about WTC 7, they would be as shocked and incensed as he was at the cover-up. “I thought that mass action would follow! But exactly the opposite occurred: indifference, apathy, silence,” Maxwell recalls.

Micro-plastics Threaten Ocean’s Ecosystem: Juvenile Fish are Becoming Addicted to Micro-beads

By number23

Larval fish are becoming addicted to consuming micro-beads, according to a new study by a group of Swedish researchers.

The study, entitled “Environmentally relevant concentrations of microplastic particles influence larval fish ecology,” was published earlier this month in the journal Science. As outlined in the study’s abstract, the scientists discovered that when developing fish are exposed to high concentrations of micro-plastic particles, they exhibit altered behaviors and stunted growth, which in turn led to increased mortality rates.

Micro-beads, the tiny pieces of plastic we find in many everyday cosmetic products such as face wash, body scrub and toothpaste, are so small they easily travel down our plugholes, through the water filtration system and into the ocean. Once there, these tiny pieces of plastic cause havoc in the ocean’s ecosystem...

MONSANTO SUED OVER CLAIMS WEED KILLER GAVE 30 PEOPLE CANCER

According to Yolanda Mendoza, the use of Monsanto’s “Roundup” weed killer nearly killed her.

Mendoza used the weed killer once a week on her one-acre property, which she says gave her non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

Cbsnews.com reports:

During her five-month battle with the disease, her children were only allowed to visit once a week. There were moments when she didn’t think she’d make it, but Mendoza said her kids helped her through them, and the most difficult part was “not being there for them.”

After intense chemotherapy, her cancer is now in remission, but Mendoza is fighting a battle against the product she says made her sick – the popular weed killer “Roundup.” She used the backpack sprayer once a week on her one-acre property.

“I would strap it on and I would walk around spraying,” Mendoza said.

Rosetta's grande finale: Space probe is to crash land on comet it has spent two years orbiting in September (but at just 1 mph)

In its final ours the space probe will beam back high resolution clos up images of the comet along with other last ditch measurements.

Its mission will then end with it impacting on the surface in what is being described as a 'soft landing'.

Scientists say the impact will take place at around 1.1 miles per hour – about half the speed of the landing by the ill-fated Philae lander.

Common chemicals found in plastic bottles, pollution and even makeup are 'damaging babies' brains and lowering their IQs'

Scientists said the chemicals can lower children's IQs and are being introduced into people's lives with little review of the associated dangers.

Chemicals that are of most concern include lead and mercury, organophosphate pesticides used in agriculture and gardens, polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) found in flame retardants, and phthalates, found in plastic bottles, food containers and beauty products.

Flame retardants, and traffic pollution and from wood smoke can also affect brain development in both the womb and in childhood, according to the new report.

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), once used as coolants and lubricants in electrical equipment, are also of concern.

Although these were banned in the US in 1977 and in the UK in 1981, they can linger in the environment for decades.

Flu vaccine facts they don't want you to know about

As reported by Dr. Brent Hunter at Blogs.NaturalNews.com in November 2013, just as the influenza season was beginning that year the media and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had already begun ramping up the propaganda about how important it was to get the flu vaccine, despite the fact that the shot itself had been deemed extremely toxic, ineffective and very unsafe.

"Did you know that the 2013-2014 influenza vaccines contain dangerous levels of mercury?" he wrote. "The vaccine contains 25,000 times more mercury than the safety limit for drinking water!"

The Brexit reshuffles world geopolitics

No-one seems to comprehend the consequences of the British decision to leave the European Union.

While the veil is being ripped apart before our eyes, our elites do not understand the situation any better than the Communist Party of Soviet Russia could see the consequences of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 – the dissolution of the USSR in December 1991.

In identical fashion, we will soon be witnessing the dissolution of the European Union, then NATO, and unless they pay close attention, the dismantling of the United States.

The Miserable Catch 22 Of Mental Illness

I’ve dealt with mental health issues for decades now. Nothing fancy or interesting like multiple personalities or hallucinations. Just run-of-the-mill boring ones — good old depression and anxiety, and maybe some undiagnosed PTSD to go with it.

Pro-GMO Spin Masquerading As Science Courtesy Of “Shameful White Men Of Privilege”

Unlike their predecessors, early 21st century missionaries do not come armed with bibles. They come as members of a scientific priesthood, spouting slick PR and are supported by the likes of Bill Gates, taxpayer ‘aid’ and the global agritech cartel and rely on the leverage of international institutions like the World Bank, IMF and WTO.

Dining Out? Here’s Some Food For Thought

Americans now spend more on dining out than on groceries. But while we increasingly seek out organic and fair trade goods at the store, we usually don’t think about the social and environmental impacts of dining out.

Japanese space agency to trial electric cable for space junk removal

The space agency is planning an experiment to remove simulated space junk as part of efforts to develop a simple and inexpensive disposal system for objects that might puncture the International Space Station or destroy satellites.

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency said scientists will try to slow a cylindrical object and steer it toward the atmosphere, where debris typically burns up.

Space junk beyond a certain size is monitored by the U.S. military but there is currently no effective means of removing it.

Popular weed killer faces lawsuit over cancer claims

During her five-month battle with the disease, her children were only allowed to visit once a week. There were moments when she didn't think she'd make it, but Mendoza said her kids helped her through them, and the most difficult part was "not being there for them."

After intense chemotherapy, her cancer is now in remission, but Mendoza is fighting a battle against the product she says made her sick - the popular weed killer "Roundup." She used the backpack sprayer once a week on her one-acre property.

"I would strap it on and I would walk around spraying," Mendoza said.

Attorney Robin L. Greenwald's firm Weitz & Luxenberg represents Mendoza and more than 30 other suing or planning to sue Monsanto, the agriculture company that discovered Roundup's main ingredient, glyphosate. She said her clients used Roundup frequently at work and at home.

Shocking Report: Over 5,300 U.S. Water Systems are in Violation of the Law — Poisoning Millions

By Claire Bernish

According to a new report, some 18 million Americans “live in communities where the water systems are in violation of the law.”

Flint apparently marked the tip of a nefarious iceberg, and lead isn’t the only contaminant polluting drinking water for millions in the United States...

107 Nobel Laureates Demand Greenpeace Stop Opposing GMOs... Because "We're Scientists"

The letter asks Greenpeace to cease its efforts to block introduction of a genetically engineered strain of rice that supporters say could reduce Vitamin-A deficiencies causing blindness and death in children in the developing world.

"We urge Greenpeace and its supporters to re-examine the experience of farmers and consumers worldwide with crops and foods improved through biotechnology, recognize the findings of authoritative scientific bodies and regulatory agencies, and abandon their campaign against 'GMOs' in general and Golden Rice in particular," the letter states according to The Washington Post.

The reasoning is simple according to those who signed the letter: "We're scientists" - so there!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me preface this by saying I come from a science background myself, but all too often science gets hijacked and distorted for political or economic gain, or simply makes goofs which are perpetuated by arrogance!

Why should we not just blindly trust science?

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles, trying to reconcile the Earth centered model with the observed motions of the planets. Epicycles hold the record for longest running scientific goof in history!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thought the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!

Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors thought infection was caused by bad air, from which we get the term "Malaria."

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus...

... the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

In 1948, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of DDT. A few years later it had almost collapsed the food chain.

In 1949, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of the "therapeutic value" of lobotomy! Patients had their brains butchered by having what was essentially an ice pick shoved up their nose into their brains!

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic ran an article in 2015 whining why people don't believe science. But science is not about belief but about facts! And National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

Killing Newborn Babies No Different To Abortion, Say Medical Ethicists

A medical journal has called for the acceptance of ‘after-birth abortion’ (killing a newborn baby), causing outrage among pro-life campaigners and raising an array of ethical questions.

Writing in the Journal of Medical Ethics, Alberto Giubilini from the University of Milan and Francesca Minerva from Melbourne University argue that foetuses and newborns “do not have the same moral status as actual persons”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And who gets to decide who is or is not an "actual person?"

22,000 Nurses Refuse *Mandatory* Vaccinations

If you are a nurse in the US and refuse the flu vaccine (one the CDC has even admitted doesn’t always work, largely due to fast mutations and too slow of production) then you have to wear a face mask while on duty. Despite the fact that multiple studies have also shown that flu vaccinations are ineffective and do not offer any extra protection for hospital patients, hospitals are forcing the issue on some of their most prized employees.

Some nurses are choosing to lose their jobs instead of being forced into receiving a vaccine. Others are fighting back by suing the hospital, state, and federal governments for $100,000,000 for trying to take away their constitutional rights.

Do You Still Eat Baby Carrots? After Reading This, You Won’t!

By Amanda Froelich

Carrots are part of a healthy diet, right? Well, if they’re organic, haven’t been processed, or dipped in chemical cleaners, absolutely. Carrots are an incredibly nutritious root vegetable to consume as they’re rich in fiber and vitamins A and C.

Of course, that doesn’t really apply to “baby” carrots, which are made from larger, crooked or deformed carrots. As Mercola relays, the bright orange, edible-looking bites are cut and shaped into cocktail carrots and are dipped in a solution of water and chlorine so they might be preserved.

Why is this done?...

CDC Halts Use of Nasal Spray Flu Vaccine

By Missy Fluegge

Just days ago, an advisory committee of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) voted against using the popular FluMist nasal spray vaccine for the upcoming flu season campaign due to its extreme ineffectiveness.

The CDC’s vaccine task force, known as the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) announced that the live attenuated vaccine was only three percent effective in children ages 2 through 17...

Malaria Vaccine Can Cause Negative 'Rebound Effect,' Study Says

A vaccine for malaria has been a long-time dream for researchers, but it’s no easy feat. Now, a new study on our most advanced vaccine shows its efficacy not only wanes, but it can also make some kids get more bouts of malaria later in life. In a seven-year follow up of the Phase II trial of the RTS,S vaccine—the malaria vaccine that has been in development the longest—researchers found the vaccine significantly dropped in efficacy over time.

Gardasil: Sharing the Carnage with Boys

By Jennifer Otto

In 2014, at the age of 18 and a half, Zach was a first semester full-time college student and worked a laborious job roughly 30 hours a week. His life was on track, he was social, active and happy. Zach swam like a fish in the water with a body built for track who walked miles almost every day.

In early October that same year, Zach sustained an ankle injury which placed him out of work while he recovered. During this October 3rd appointment for his ankle, he was talked into a flu vaccination. October 13th, Zach returned for a follow up and was talked into accepting the Gardasil and meningococcal vaccines. It was shortly after this that the first phase of his health decline began...

US NAVY IS DEVELOPING ‘SUPERSONIC SUBMARINES’ THAT COULD CUT THROUGH THE OCEAN AT THE SPEED OF SOUND USING A BUBBLE

As swimmers know, moving cleanly through the water can be a problem due o the huge amounts of drag created – and for submarines, this is even more of a problem. However, US Navy funded researchers say they have a simple solution – a bubble. Researchers at Penn State Applied Research Laboratory are developing a new system using a technique called supercavitation.
