Hepatitis A Outbreak Spreads In Michigan, No Stopping This ‘Regional Epidemic’

A recent hepatitis A outbreak in southeast Michigan has now sickened 457 people. That’s 14 times more than last year, and officials are having a difficult time stopping the spread of the virus.

Of the 457 known cases, 18 people have died and 370 have been hospitalized. But this outbreak is puzzling health officials as the complicated nature of the regional epidemic continues to baffle so many in the medical community. The outbreak is overly complicated. There’s no single source such as food contamination and many groups of people are at risk, including homeless people, drug users, and now terrifyingly; people who are neither. There are even more cases than normal among men who have sex with men increasing the spread of the virus.

Warnings of ‘GLOBAL OUTBREAK’ of Black Death as PLAGUE continues to spread

Some 1,300 cases of the pneumonic plague, which is transmitted by air, have now been confirmed.

An estimated 50 million lives were lost as a result of the Black Death epidemic of the 1300s.

And now the deadly disease has spread into more African countries after taking root in Madagascar.

Countries affected include South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Ethiopia, Comoros, the Seychelles, Mauritius and Reunion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why have the roads in and out of Madagascar, as well as the airport, not been closed, to prevent further contaigon from this outbreak?!?

This is a real puzzlement to me.

Living in a Car on $800 a Month

Trillions to kill people and nothing for Americans. The USA is a failed state.

Today we meet Dee, who is living in her car on $800 a month. She tried renting an apartment but found it impossible. After paying rent, she had so little money left over her quality of life was tragically low. But, by living in her car, all that money is available for her to live and thrive on so she isn't just surviving and enduring life. She's done a brilliant job of making the car livable by taking out some seats, let's see how...

MSG and aspartame are the two leading causes of central nervous system damage in the United States

Excitotoxins, as they are appropriately named, are supposed to enhance flavor and excite your taste buds, but this "class" of chemicals overstimulate neuron receptors, which are what allow brain cells to communicate with each other. This causes a firing of impulses at such a rapid rate that they become completely exhausted, and several hours later, these depleted neurons die. This is true cell death, and the parts of the brain that are specifically targeted by excitotoxins are the hypothalamus and temporal lobes, which not only control behavior, emotions, and sleep cycles, but you guessed it, immunity.

Iran to launch Dousti Satellite by year end

The head of Iranian Space Agency said Sharif University’s Dousti satellite is ready for launch and voiced optimism that it will be launched by the end of the year.

Speaking at the 23th Iranian International Press and News Agencies Exhibition, head of Iranian space agency Mohsen Bahrami said “Sharif University’s satellite named Dousti (Friendship) is scheduled for launch and we plan to send it to space by the end of the year.”

Launching a satellite has a difficult procedure so it is not possible to decide the exact time of launch, Bahrami added.

The Story Of Incredible Willpower (14 pics)

37-year-old Sara Backstrom from Sweden had weight problems since she was 8 years old. Her situation got worse after she gave birth to her son at the age of 19. She kept piling on the kilograms as she turned to fast-food and ended up weighing 146 kg. But one embarrassing incident in particular pushed her to turn her life around. When she was at a garden store, she sat down on a camping chair and it snapped underneath her. That was a moment when she knew she had to lose weight.

Las Vegas Shooting Witness, Who Described Multiple Gunmen, Found Dead

The CIA does the dirty deed. The FBI covers it up. The witnesses are dropping like flies!

Danny Contreras, an eyewitness Las Vegas shooting survivor who publicly claimed there were multiple shooters involved in the attack, has been found dead in an empty house in Las Vegas with multiple gunshot wounds.

His body was found in a vacant home in the northeastern valley after a neighbor heard a man groaning inside the building and called 911. Police say Contreras was dead when they arrived at the 5800 block of East Carey Avenue, near North Nellis Boulevard.

Boeing bets on pilotless planes

Boeing is preparing for a future that involves pilotless commercial airplanes. The biggest challenges, though, are more likely to be societal than technological.

The aerospace giant announced Oct. 5 that it plans to acquire Aurora Flight Sciences, a company in Manassas, Va., with products that include a robotic co-pilot and software that can sense landing strips. On Oct. 19 HorizonX, Boeing's venture-capital arm, revealed an investment in Pittsburgh-based drone startup Near Earth Autonomy.? Both moves come four months after Mike Sinnett, vice president of product development, said at the Paris Air Show that Boeing planned to test autonomous flying technology in a cockpit simulator this year and in an airplane in 2018.

Bangladesh Considers Sterilization to Curb Rohingya Refugee Population

Bangladesh is considering sterilizing the Rohingya refugee population after health officials proposed the move to the government Friday.

Supporters of the plan call for vasectomies for Rohingya men and tubectomies for women, saying “sterilization of the males is the best way to control the population,” according to Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, who heads a health service near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.

“If a man is sterilized, he cannot father a child even if he marries four or five times,” he added.

The idea was put forward shortly after rights activists working in refugee camps said Rohingya women believe that pregnancy protects them from rape and other attacks from Myanmar's security forces.

“Some of them told us that if a woman was pregnant, she had less chance of being targeted by the military or attackers,” AFP reported the activists as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely point out to Health Service Manager Pintu Kanti Bhattacharjee, that forced sterilzations would be another form of slow-mo genocide against the Rohingya people.

But then, that would be the point, wouldn't it?!?

And what would happen to the people who would not consent to having the procedure done?!? Would they be rounded up in camps, and offered the choice between forcible sterilization or death?!?!?

And BTW: has a Burmese-language version of "Mein Kampf" just come out?!? And I ask this, because this is precisely the kind of "racial hygiene" Hitler would have advocated against "the others" !!

I would also like to politely suggest to Mr. Bhattacharjee, that the optics of such a move against the Rohingyas, if the Myanmar government goes ahead with this plan, will be perceived by the rest of the world as a crime against humanity, and rightly so.

Here It Is Again - Paddock Was Arms Dealer And Deal Went BAD

Analysts continue to be amazed by the many links between the CIA and Stephen Paddock—and who have documented that Paddock was a CIA arms pilot delivering thousands of weapons to a Mexican drug cartel between 2006-2011 in what is now known as " Operation Fast and Furious"

According to a source in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department:: “The LVMPD knows the motive behind the attack, but the FBI will not allow us to release the motive because it implicates the FBI in illegal arms deals and supplying arms to ISIS terrorists within U.S. borders.

JFK Files: The Truth Behind the Farce

by Clifford Shack
(henrymakow.com)

The American people have been promised the release of all the classified documents on the JFK assassination. It ain't never going to happen.

But that's ok. Just connect the dots. Those of us who have, know, that solving the whodunit aspect of the assassination is just the beginning. The real, meaty story lies in the motive. Since the assassination 54 years ago, millions of published research hours allow us to piece the story together in the context of that time.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand the basics of the case. Those with a minimal degree of understanding know that the CIA was clearly behind the assassination. Most of the guys involved in planning the assassination lived blocks away from Kennedy when he lived in McClean, Virginia.

The Plague Is AIRBORNE And It’s Spreading Because People Are Literally ‘Dancing With Corpses’

The plague that’s airborne and has killed at least 124 people in Madagascar is now blamed on “dancing with corpses.” This is the time of year when the dead are wrapped in sheets and paraded through the streets while others dance around the bodies.

The local tradition is said to be one of the major causes of the spread of this disease. Since it’s airborne, anyone coming close to the corpse of a person who has died of the black death could themselves, catch the infection. Health officials suspect it’s no coincidence that the outbreak coincides with the time of year when families customarily exhume the remains of dead relatives, wrap them in a sheet, and dance with them through the streets in a sacred ritual, AFP reports.

Monsanto Attacks Scientists After Studies Show Trouble for Its New Weedkiller

Dicamba, an old weedkiller that is being used in new ways, has thrust Bradley and a half-dozen other university weed scientists into the unfamiliar role of whistleblower, confronting what they believe are misleading and scientifically unfounded claims by one of the country's biggest seed and pesticide companies: Monsanto.

"It's not comfortable. I'm like anybody else, I don't like [it when] people are unhappy with me," says Mike Owen, a weed specialist at Iowa State University. Then he chuckles. "But sometimes, like John Wayne said, a man's got to do what a man's got to do!"

"Certainly, there's not a weed scientist in any of these states who would back down, who would change their story," says Aaron Hager, at the University of Illinois.

New report claims opioids killed more Americans last year than the entire Vietnam War… worst is yet to come

The Vietnam War is supposed to have caused the death of 58,200 Americans in 19 years and six months. The death toll from opioid overdose last year topped that number at 64,070.

According to data from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, statistics in August 2017 showed that drug overdose deaths increased by 21 percent in just one year from 52,404 in 2015, and the fatality rate doubled from the numbers that were recorded 10 years ago; three quarters of those deaths were caused by opioid overdose.

Beware trick-or-treating in California! Study reveals thousands of candy brands have been reported for containing LEAD

In California, 96.3 percent of lead warnings issued for imported food products between 2001 and 2014 were for candies, the UCSF study reports.

In the US, it's estimated that more than 1 million children have lead poisoning. The contamination can cause brain and nervous system damage, developmental, learning and behavioral delays, and hearing and speech problems.

Lead poisoning can cause symptoms like nausea, vomiting, upset stomach and hyperactivity. But these symptoms - which are not dissimilar to familiar signs of a child who has had too much candy - often go unnoticed and diagnosed.

Billionaire drug mogul is charged with racketeering and corruption after company he founded 'pushed powerful opioid-based painkiller spray to patients who didn't have cancer'

Insys Therapeutics, an opioid medication maker, has faced increasing scrutiny from authorities across the country over allegations of pushing prescriptions of powerful painkillers amid a drug epidemic that is claiming thousands of lives each year.

In the new indictment, Kapoor, of Phoenix, Arizona, and the other defendants are accused of offering bribes to doctors to write large numbers of prescriptions for the fentanyl-based Subsys pain medication that is only approved by the FDA for used by cancer patients with severe nerve pain.

Most of the people who received Subsys prescriptions did not have cancer.

Nearly 50% of people develop their food allergies AFTER age 17, study says

A report from the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology has found that 45 percent of people experience the onset of at least one food allergy after the age of 17.

In fact more than 35 percent of allergies to many types of seafood - including shrimp, crab and lobster - do not appear until after age 17.

The study also found black, Asian and Hispanic adults are more at-risk for developing certain allergies than white adults.

    Health Ranger: Why independent science TERRIFIES the food and supplement industries (but shouldn’t)

    What you are witnessing in all this is the “democratization of science.” It is a decentralized revolution in food transparency, and the movement is rapidly proliferating. In addition to the Consumer Wellness Center (where I serve as the executive director) now analyzing and publishing food analysis results, another non-profit group called the Clean Label Project is also conducting laboratory analysis of products. The Organic Consumers Association, Cornucopia and the Environmental Working Group are also engaged in lab analysis of foods and personal care products, and I’m personally aware of at least two more similar projects coming online in 2018.

    Madagascar isn’t getting this epidemic of the pneumonic plague under control as everyone had hoped. In fact, the opposite seems to be true.

    Less than two weeks ago, there were 200 infections and 33 deaths. As of today, those numbers have increased dramatically to more than 1300 infections and 124 deaths. And according to many infectious disease experts, the outbreak has not yet reached its peak. It’s urgent that we stay up-to-date on this epidemic so that we can be prepared if it goes worldwide.

    TWO-THIRDS OF US BABY FOODS TEST POSITIVE FOR ARSENIC, MANY CONTAIN LEAD & CADMIUM – STUDY

    Some 65 percent of baby food products in the US – including four out of five baby formulas – contain traces of the toxin arsenic, a new study has found, but officials say there is little they can do to remove substances that could harm developing infants.
    The Clean Label Project study of 530 baby products also found that 36 percent of the products contained lead, 58 percent cadmium and 10 percent acrylamide. While most samples contained only trace amounts of the toxins, some exceeded the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommendations by up to six times.

    The transparent labeling advocacy group said that Gerber, Enfamil, Plum Organics and Sprout – market-leading brands – produced some of the most contaminated baby foods.

    “The baby industry needs to do a better job in protecting America’s most vulnerable population,” Jaclyn Brown, the executive director of the Clean Label Project, told USA Today.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The FDA is completely compromised on this issue, and should be collectively sacked for allowing these poisons into baby food.

    Recommendations for clean food, free of these poisons, should be compulsory, period, end of discussion, and the CEO of the first baby food manufacturer flouting strict guidelines, should be doing hard jail time, for allowing it to happen.

    Former FDA Commissioner Charged in RICO Lawsuit

    A Federal Lawsuit charges Dr. Margaret Hamburg, former Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) with conspiracy, racketeering & colluding to conceal deadly drug dangers – under the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations law (RICO) law. The amended RICO lawsuit was filed on April 11, 2016 in the U.S. District Court in Washington DC on behalf of eight plaintiffs who claim they have suffered severe harm by ingesting the drug, Levaquin whose deadly risks were concealed to protect financial interests.

    The drug is one of the controversial group of antibiotics, including Levaquin, Cipro, Avelox and other fluoroquinolones. Public Citizen petitioned the FDA in 1996 and again in 2006, to issue Black Box warnings for tendon rupture and tendinitis. Had warnings been issued, the death toll from Levaquin– reputedly more than 5,000 — and the tens of thousands who were debilitated with life-threatening diseases would likely have been averted.

    Gulf of Mexico Now Largest Dead Zone in the World, and Factory Farming Is to Blame

    Nitrogen fertilizers and sewage sludge runoff from factory farms are responsible for creating a dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico spanning more than 8,700 square miles — the largest recorded dead zone in the world
    Seven million Americans have levels of nitrates in their drinking water that are high enough to be associated with cancer, according to some studies
    Nitrogen builds up far below the soil surface where it can continue to leach into groundwater for 35 years. This means environmental concerns remain for decades even if nitrogen fertilizer use stops

    Profits before people
    Decades ago, cigarette companies saw a threat to their ever-increasing wealth. The number of deaths caused by smokers falling asleep with a lit cigarette, on their chair couch, or bed, was skyrocketing.

    Instead of developing a cigarette that wouldn’t incinerate, tobacco companies responded to pressure for a solution by teaming up with another greedy industry, and starting a chain of lies that is only now being exposed.

    For those who haven't, a bit of a review might be necessary. When GMOs first came into play during the administration of G.H.W. Bush (who else?), I.G. Farbensanto (our code for the big "agribusiness" companies) developed the principle of "substantial equivalence" to avoid the normal procedures of testing products. Substantial equivalence simply meant that, as far as regulatory policy was concerned, GMO products were no different than ordinary natural seeds and crops; GMO corn and soy beans and so on were to be treated exactly the same as their natural counterparts, and hence, there was no need for "a closer look." If it looks like a potato and tastes like a potato, then it's a potato.

    While other planets, such as Venus and Earth, are known to have so-called magnetotails, the feature observed at Mars is twisted far more dramatically than expected.

    Data collected by NASA’s Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution Mission (MAVEN) spacecraft suggest the processes behind the twisted tail could also be contributing to the thinning of Mars’ already sparse atmosphere.

    Monsanto’s RoundUp is more dangerous than we realized: Even the inert ingredients have proven to be dangerous

    What role do “inert” ingredients play in disrupting human endocrine systems, cellular processes, and assisting the permeation of toxins across the blood-brain barrier?

    “Inert” ingredients are designed to enhance glypohsate’s toxicity as an herbicide. Since glyphosate is also a registered antibiotic, it is inevitably doing great damage to human gut health. Becoming part of the food and water supply, glyphosate and its host of inert ingredients work together and deplete the good bacteria that control much of the human digestive and immune systems.

    The inert ingredients of Roundup that often go ignored, are actually powerful adjuvants that make glyphosate more pervasive in the environment, delaying the breakdown and decay of glyphosate, while allowing the carcinogen to more readily penetrate tissues. These “inert” ingredients are making glyphosate more of a nightmare long term.

    BOMBSHELL: Genetic modification proven ineffective — pests have become immune to the poison of modified crops in less than five years, but we still have to eat it

    After looking at 36 cases examining how insects respond to crops that were modified to produce the insect-killing Bt protein, they discovered that bugs developed resistance that made the GM crops substantially less effective in 16 cases. Another three were starting to show “early warnings of resistance.”

    They took their data from cases involving 15 different species of pests in 10 countries, including the U.S. China, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Australia and the Philippines. Their results were published in the journal Nature Biotechnology.

    The study also reported that pests’ resistance to Bt crops has been evolving more quickly in recent years as their resistance to already-introduced strains can breed cross-resistance to different Bt proteins that are introduced in future GM Bt crops.

    Black death kills nearly 100 people as plague infects 1,150 in TWO MONTHS

    A PLAGUE epidemic has killed nearly 100 people in just two months as officials warn the number of people infected is “growing by the day”.

    Hospitals in Madagascar have seen more than 1,150 cases since August, despite the picturesque island nation commonly recording a few hundred cases of plague every year.

    And as the disease spreads to urban areas, health workers battling to slow the rate of infection have warned the stigma associated with the illness is undermining their efforts to contain it.

    Latest data from the World Health Organisation (WHO) says 39 healthcare workers had been infected so far, and the Red Cross is reportedly using the same burial methods employed during the 2014-2016 Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

    Madagascar Hospitals On High Alert: ‘No One Is Safe’ From The Black Plague

    Travelers are being warned to keep their distance from areas of Madagascar affected by the bubonic plague. As the outbreak worsens, some doctors are even warning that “no one is safe” from the disease.

    The outbreak of the black plague in Madagascar has so far killed 97 people, and doctors are warning that it will be continuing to spread and worsen, meaning no one is safe. Health officials say the disease, which contributed to the deaths of more than 50 million people in Europe during the Middle Ages, has spread from rural areas to the more urban areas not usually affected. Hundreds of cases are reported on the tropical island every year, but experts are warning the epidemic is “much more dangerous” than in previous years.

    As part of the plan to begin phasing out gas and diesel car sales over the next three decades, drivers of diesel vehicles and older petrol cars in the UK will now face a tax called T-Charge for driving into the financial district and parts of west London, Reuters reported.

    Drivers are already charged 11.50 pounds ($15) under a congestion charge. But those driving petrol and diesel vehicles typically before 2006 will now need to pay an additional 10 pounds ($13.19). That means if you have an older vehicle before 2006 or a diesel vehicle you will be paying a total of 21.50 pounds or ($28.19) just to get into the city...

    E-cigarettes can trigger deadly lung diseases as easily as tobacco products, study says

    Researchers found that e-cigarette smokers were likely to develop dangerous proteins associated with lung diseases such as COPD and cystic fibrosis and that the devices are no better for people than regular cigarettes.

    The study adds to a growing body of evidence proving that e-cigarettes might not be the ideal alternative smokers addicted to tobacco are looking for.

    Prozac in sea water is causing crabs to lose their inhibitions and 'take dangerous risks'

    Crabs exposed to Prozac, a drug used to treat depression and other mental health disorders, causes them to engage in risky behavior.

    In a study, researchers found that Oregon shore crabs exposed to the drug exhibit behaviors that make it easier for predators to catch them.

    The study is important because it sheds light on how pharmaceuticals found in the environment could affect animal behavior and survival.

    Smallpox Could Again Be a Serious Threat

    But synthetic biology, like many other emerging technologies, is dual-use. The technological advances that fuel the amazing discoveries and products featured at the SynBioBeta conference can also be misused to cause harm.

    The most recent dual-use concern about synthetic biology involves one of humanity’s oldest foes: smallpox. Smallpox was eradicated from nature in 1980, and all known stocks of the virus are located at World Health Organization–supervised repositories at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States and at the Vector Institute in Russia.

    However, a Canadian scientist funded by the American biotech company Tonix has recently demonstrated the ability to create pox viruses from scratch.

    Israeli Merkava Hit by Hezbollah in 2006

    This is what Hezbollah fighters did to Merkava MBT's in 2006 with Kornet ATGM's. The Israelis advanced up valleys without clearing the ridges. The Kornet outranged the Israeli's tank guns by over 1,000 meters and the Israelis couldn't elevate their tank cannons enough to shoot back anyway. They were out thought and out fought.
    The IDF has been fighting unarmed people in the main since 1973. Hezbollah,the Iranians and Syrians are experienced blooded fighters with good weapons and tactics as well as strategy and they are backed up by The Bear. All the Israelis have left are nukes and the weakened US.
    A very dangerous situation for the Planet and the People indeed..

    California seeks to combat unusual hepatitis outbreak - 18 dead, 600 infected and growing

    ‘Patient Zero’ in San Diego Hepatitis A Outbreak is Homeless Man From El Cajon Area

    As San Diego’s hepatitis A outbreak has continued to grow, so has a fascination about the identity and importance of “patient zero,” the first person believed to be infected in a surge of illness that has now killed 19 people.

    At first unwilling to say much about this mysterious person, San Diego County health officials disclosed twice during public meetings in late September that the apparent first patient — what epidemiologists often call an outbreak’s “index case” — was a homeless man who tested positive for hepatitis infection in East County.

    Dr. Eric McDonald, chief of the county’s Epidemiology and Immunization Services Branch, reiterated in an email this week that this man was treated in a La Mesa hospital and “when interviewed said that the exposure period was mainly in El Cajon.”

    Manatee Sheriff: Opioid overdoses, deaths declining

    Dealers lace heroin with synthetic opioids fentanyl and carfentanil knowing they are causing overdoses and deaths, Wells said. “Drug addicts have no idea what they’re taking.”

    His agency’s emphasis has not been on arresting addicts but on getting the dealers behind bars, Wells said. This year his investigators have confiscated thousands of grams of synthetic opioids with a street value of almost $400,000.

    Until recently, synthetic opioid possession did not carry the same penalties as heroin possession. Dealers would be back on the street after posting $1,500 bail.

    A state law that took effect Oct. 1 now imposes the same penalties for fentanyl and carfentanil possession as that for heroin. Offenders can receive prison sentences ranging from three to 25 years.

    British Musician Takes On Vaccine Issues With A Musical Video

    By Catherine J. Frompovich

    Isn’t there something dramatically and incongruously wrong about such a deliberate refusal to stop medical child abuse perpetrated upon infants, toddlers and teens by federal, state and local health agencies with apparent greased lightning support of advertising and lobbying from Big Pharma to extol vaccines as safe and effective?

    Nevertheless, one songwriter, Daz Nez, has stepped up to the plate and hit a home run with his song “Word to the Wise” he co-titled to “Always Reject Vaccines” with a video version of it...

    Latest Fear Mongering About Self Sufficiency: Salmonella in Backyard Chickens

    By Joe Jarvis

    I just read a report about how the trend of raising backyard poultry is contributing to a rise in salmonella infections. Fox, the New York Times, NPR and other popular outlets have reported the same thing within the last few months. CBS actually titled their article: “Backyard Chicken Trend Turns Deadly.”

    All the reports are based on a Centers for Disease Control warning about the “outbreak” of salmonella among small-scale chicken keepers.

    Now I certainly don’t object to good information about staying healthy while raising livestock. A lot of people who keep chickens on a small scale are new to it.

    But looking at the numbers of infections, I doubt the salmonella risk is even as great as buying chicken and eggs from the store...

    China to ‘Compel’ Saudi Arabia to Trade Oil in Yuan – Ending Petrodollar as World Reserve Currency

    The jig is up for the NWO gang that murdered JFK back in 1963 and has run America into the ground ever since.Their day is ending!

    This week, a leading economist predicted a major paradigm shift, as Carl Weinberg, chief economist and managing director at High Frequency Economics told CNBC that China will “compel” Saudi Arabia to abandon the petrodollar, and instead, begin trading oil in yuan—a move he says is likely to precipitate the rest of the oil market following suit and abandoning the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.

    Weinberg noted that China is poised to clearly dominate the global landscape in terms of oil demand since surpassing the U.S. as the “biggest oil importer on the planet,” adding that Saudi Arabia will “pay attention to this because even as much as one or two years from now, Chinese demand will dwarf U.S. demand.”

    14 years of rising opioid deaths in Colorado REVERSED after marijuana was legalized

    As reported by Reason Magazine, since the legalized sale of recreational marijuana began in January 2014 after voters in the state approved a measure permitting it (recreational use still remains against federal law, however), the state has witnessed a 6.5 percent fall in opioid deaths.

    The case of the disappearing insect. Boffin tells Reg: We don't know why... but we must act

    "Insects are at the bottom of the ecosystem," the lead author of a study into a massive decrease in collected insects told The Reg. Their loss, he added, is "likely to collapse the entire pyramid".

    Between 1989 and 2016, boffins used nets to fill about 1,500 one-litre bottles with flying insects from 63 conservation sites in Germany. Every week in 1989, they collected about 50 grams of the critters, but in a week today, they get only about 10 grams.

    A new study in PLOS One has found that between 1989 and 2016, for reasons that are unclear, the total biological mass of insects collected at these "protected" nature sites has fallen about 76 per cent, considering changes in seasons and climate. Flying insects make up over 90 per cent of the roughly 33,000 insect species in Germany.

    ‘I now hate my ship’: Surveys reveal disastrous morale on cruiser Shiloh

    “It’s only a matter of time before something horrible happens,” one shipmate warned.

    “Our sailors do not trust the CO,” another noted.

    It’s a “floating prison,” one said.

    “I just pray we never have to shoot down a missile from North Korea,” a distraught sailor lamented, “because then our ineffectiveness will really show.”

    Frequently in focus is the commanding officer’s micromanagement and a neutered chiefs mess. Aycock was widely feared among sailors who said minor on-the-job mistakes often led to time in the brig, where they would be fed only bread and water.

    Flashback: Antidepressant prescriptions in England double in a decade

    The number of antidepressants given to patients in England has doubled in a decade, official figures show.

    In 2015 there were 61m such drugs prescribed and dispensed outside of hospitals. They are used to treat clinical depression as well as other conditions such as generalised anxiety disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and panic attacks.

    The total was 31.6m more than in 2005 and up 3.9m, or 6.8% on 2014, according to a report from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC).

    Flashback: High antidepressant dose linked to self harm in youths

    For the study, Miller and colleagues looked at the health records of 162,625 privately insured people ages 10 to 64 treated for depression with three popular antidepressants best known by the brand names Celexa, Prozac and Zoloft.

    They compared otherwise similar patients — based on the intensity of their depression symptoms, previous self harm and other factors — who got either typical starting doses or higher doses.

    The typical starting doses were 20 mg. a day for Celexa and Prozac and 50 mg. a day for Zoloft.

    Result: After a year, children, teens and young adults were twice as likely to engage in deliberate self harm if they started at higher doses. Such acts were especially common in the first three months. No such link between starting dose and self harm was found in adults 25 and up.

    'Steep rise' in self-harm among teenage girls

    Since 2001, girls have had much higher rates of self-harm than boys - 37.4 per 10,000 compared with 12.3 in boys.

    While self-harm rates stayed constant among 10- to 12-year-olds and 17- to 19-year-olds, there was a 68% increase among 13- to 16-year-olds over the three-year period studied.

    This took the rate in girls from 45.9 per 10,000 in 2011 to 77 per 10,000 in 2014.

    The researchers, from the University of Manchester, looked at data for nearly 17,000 patients from more than 600 GP practices.

    Giant deep sinkholes of unknown origin appear in Siberia for third consecutive year

    Giant sinkholes in the ground formed as a result of emission of gas in the Yamal-Nenetsk autonomous region have grown in size in three years. The sinkholes were discovered in 2014 in the area of the Bovanenkovskoye gas field. The holes were filled the water and turned into lakes. The diameter of one of them on the outer edge was not less than 60 meters at that time. The hole was 200 meters deep, but it continues to grow in size. According to Russian geologists, the giant sinkholes were formed as a result of emissions of methane from the melting permafrost. Satellite observations indicated the existence of several dozens of other deep craters. It turned out that the largest hole, codenamed B2, is surrounded by twenty other similar structures. "I would compare these structures to mushrooms: if you find one mushroom, you will probably find a dozen more nearby.

    Tarred and feathered, lynched in the street and locked up in internment camps: The tragic plight of Germans in AMERICA during the First World War

    A fascinating collection of photos have resurfaced showing the hardships faced by German-Americans at the brutal height of the First World War.

    As Europe was ravaged by fighting, German immigrants in the US suffered harassment, internment, lynchings - and even the humiliation of being tarred and feathered.

    Although a little-remembered part of history today, America was wracked by the fear and paranoia that swept from coast to coast during the Great War.
