Kushner Foundation Gives $342K to Chabad — Still Surprised About Jared and Ivanka’s Synagogue?

It might seem odd for a Modern Orthodox Jewish family to join a Chabad synagogue. But Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are already quite invested in the ultra-Orthodox outreach movement – or to be more precise, their parents are.

A Haaretz examination has revealed that Charles and Seryl Kushner have been major benefactors of Chabad over the years. Between 2003 and 2013, their family foundation donated a total of $342,500 to various institutions and projects associated with the movement, their tax records show.

Chabad has benefited not only from Kushner’s side of the family. It turns out that President-elect Donald Trump has also contributed to the movement – even before his daughter, who converted to Judaism, was married. Altogether, the Donald J. Trump Foundation has donated $11,550 to three Chabad institutions.

Trump Pardons Racist, Criminal Jewish Fanatic

Tuesday we posted Michael Berg’s article, Ex-Chabad Member Exposes Trump Family Cult which demonstrated that Trump’s family (Kushners) belongs to Chabad, a racist, criminal Jewish supremacist doomsday cult. The very next day Trump commuted the 27-year prison sentence of Chabad kosher butcher, Rabbi Sholom Rabashkin, 57, a GOP donor. He had served only eight years.

In addition, in one of the nation’s largest illegal worker busts, federal authorities raided the plant and detained 389 illegal immigrants in 2008. ICE determined that at the time of their raid, two-thirds of the plant’s workers were undocumented. It turned out the company itself was cranking out false social security cards.

Is 5G technology dangerous? Early data shows a slight increase of tumors in male rats exposed to cellphone radiation

National Toxicology Program researchers released preliminary data in May that showed small increases in tumors in male rats exposed to cellphone radiation.

The rats were exposed to nine hours of radiation daily, in 10-minutes-on, 10-minutes-off intervals, over their whole bodies for two years. The researchers found increased incidences of rare brain and heart tumors starting at about the federally allowable level of cellphone radiation for brain exposure, with greater incidences at about two and four times those levels.

Extrapolating the results to humans gets complicated, and there were some puzzling findings as well. Why, for instance, did only male rats show increased tumor rates, and not females? Final results from the peer-reviewed study won't be released until at least the end of 2017.

Dementia: Cannabis CBD oil may reduce Alzheimer’s disease risk

Cannabidiol oil is a natural supplement, sourced from cannabis plants.

Despite the name, it’s not addictive, and could be used to treat a number of medical conditions, research has revealed.

Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, depression, arthritis and cardiovascular disease patients could all benefit from taking cannabidiol oil supplements, according to studies.

The oil could also be used as an “effective treatment” for epilepsy, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

United Nations admits latest outbreak of polio in Syria was caused by polio vaccines

In war-torn Syria, there’s little doubt that the conflict has taken a toll on health. Now, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) reports that their attempt at using vaccines to “protect” children against polio has backfire — infecting more children with the devastating disease rather than saving them.

Vaccines make children sick, you don’t say?

Antibiotic use during labor kills healthy gut bacteria in babies, making them prone to illness… and more antibiotic use

According to their recent studies, giving moms antibiotics during labor can delay the growth of healthy gut bacteria (also known as the microbiota) in newborn infants for up to the first 12 weeks of life. And as the researchers note, early development of healthy microbiota is essential for lifetime health.

Brain damage in newborns dropped dramatically after non-stick cookware chemicals were banned

Great food is one that’s made naturally from preparation to serving, and it has been a been a key component on the reduction of babies born with low weight and brain damage, based on a study published by the New York University (NYU) School of Medicine.

The report, published in the International Journal of Hygiene and Environmental Health, states that eliminating chemicals that were used to make non-stick coating, like Teflon, have stymied more than 118,000 low-weight births as well as brain damage related to it. This finding was derived after a thorough examination of blood samples from women who had just given birth as part of a national health study.

Deafness breakthrough: Harvard scientists cure mice with hearing loss using gene therapy in a world first

A gene-editing treatment has been developed that has been hailed as a dramatic step towards a cure for children who are born deaf.

Deafness has genetic causes in more than 50 per cent of people – and is largely incurable.

But now a successful test of a treatment which reversed deafness in mice offers hope for human treatments, a hearing loss charity said last night.

The new treatment pioneered by Harvard University researchers used a technique called Crispr CAS-9.

Scientists find bacteria living in polar ice and snow for the first time in breakthrough that could expand the zones for habitable planets

Scientists have observed evidence of living bacteria in one of the harshest environments on Earth, where it’s long been thought nothing could survive.

Microbial activity in Arctic and Antarctic snow has been directly observed for the first time, revealing bacteria remain active in snow even during the decades-long process of its compression into ice.

The discovery could mean bacteria are responsible for slight amounts of CO2 found in air pockets in the polar ice caps – and, it suggests life could thrive in regions or even planets previously considered sterile.

Vitamin D pills 'could stop colds or flu'

The immune system uses vitamin D to make antimicrobial weapons that puncture holes in bacteria and viruses.

But as vitamin D is made in the skin while out in the sun, many people have low levels during winter.

Trials on using supplements to prevent infections have given mixed results, so the researchers pooled data on 11,321 people from 25 separate trials to try to get a definitive answer.

The team at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) looked at respiratory tract infections - which covers a wide range of illnesses from a sniffle to flu to pneumonia.

Overall, the study said one person would be spared infection for every 33 taking vitamin D supplements.

That is more effective than flu vaccination, which needs to treat 40 to prevent one case, although flu is far more serious than the common cold.

Trump: US Must Boost Rare Earth Mineral Exploration for National Security

The US President's executive order called for identifying new sources of critical minerals and for increasing activity at all levels of the supply chain, including exploration, mining, concentration, separation, alloying, recycling and reprocessing critical minerals.

"An increase in private sector domestic exploration, production, recycling, and reprocessing of critical minerals… will reduce our dependence on imports [and] improve our national security and balance of trade, and enhance the technological superiority and readiness of our armed forces," the executive order said on Wednesday.

Police say sorry after ripping out legal hemp crop in Ruatoria (NZ)

Police have apologised after mistakenly ripping out a cannabis crop that turned out to be legal - and have promised the owner they will pay him back.

Willie Kaa is a licensed hemp grower who lives in Ruatoria on the East Coast.

He is part of a collective of growers working with Hikurangi Hemp to develop medical cannabis products from industrial hemp plantations.

Kaa recently planted 16 hemp cultivars as a trial on Rangitukia Station just north of Ruatoria, after applying for an industrial hemp licence from Medicines Control at the Ministry of Health.

According to a statement from Hikurangi Hemp, Kaa also arranged for local police to visit to inspect the site.

But this week, a police drug squad from outside the area raided the property, taking all 16 plants, the statement said.

How exploding stars influence Earth's weather: Cosmic rays rain down through the planet's atmosphere to help seed clouds and cool the climate

Cosmic rays from exploding stars can influence weather on Earth, a pioneering study has found.

There has long been speculation that cosmic rays – highly charged particles travelling through space - may affect our atmosphere.

But now researchers at Denmark Technical University show that the rays trigger the formation of 'seeds' in our atmosphere.

These seeds allow clouds to form around them – and can potentially have a cooling effect on the Earth.

Ban on funding for 'super pathogen' experiments lifted despite fears they could be used for bioterror attacks or accidentally cause a pandemic

The U.S. government has lifted a 2014 temporary ban on funding research involving the flu and other pathogens in which scientists deliberately make them more transmissible or more deadly.

The ban covered federal funding for any new so-called 'gain-of-function' experiments that enhance pathogens such as Avian influenza, SARS and the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome or MERS viruses.

It followed a series of safety breaches at federal laboratories involving the handling of anthrax and avian flu that raised questions about lab safety at high-security national laboratories.

These Are the 12 Most Disaster-Prone States in America

No matter where you live, there's always a possibility that a disaster might occur in any of the states. Hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes, wildfires...Mother Nature can get you regardless of your location. And it isn't just Mother Nature we have to worry about - things like chemical spills, terror attacks, and explosions can also create a disaster scenario.

But, 12 states, in particular, are more disaster-prone than others and have had more than their fair share of disasters declared by presidents over the decades. These statistics are from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and only encompass crises in which an official declaration of disaster was mad

Is Autism a side effect of metal toxicity? High aluminum concentrations discovered in brain tissue of autistic children

It’s a well-known fact that even the smallest amount of aluminum, if found in a person’s brain tissue, can become a huge problem. There have also been many studies that look into how having high-levels of aluminum in brain tissue is correlated with neurological conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. Now a new study puts the spotlight on autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and tests to see if there might be a connection between it and having high-levels of aluminum in the brain.

The study, which was first published in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, shows some of the highest levels of aluminum ever recorded in human brain tissue. The data was gathered from the brains of 10 donors who had ASD. The study was lead by Dr. Christopher Exley, one of the world’s leading experts on aluminum toxicity, from Keele University.

Lacking any real job skills, broke millennials are now donating blood plasma as a routine source of income

Being a millennial is tough, even though they are by and large considered to be a rather sheltered generation. Although they’re bright in some respects, many aren’t quite as prepared for the real world as they should be. Some of it is out of their control as they face crushing student loans and stagnating wages, a situation that is leading many young people to sell their blood plasma to make ends meet.

One former community college student spoke about how she visits an Oregon plasma donation center twice a week following a reduction in her hours at work. At the center, people who donate plasma can earn anywhere from $25 to $150 per week over a maximum of eight visits per month.

Dengue vaccine does NOT protect against the disease but actually puts you at HIGHER RISK of contracting it

Earlier this month, at a press conference in Manila, Philippines, Dr. Ng Su Peing, Sanofi’s global medical head, admitted that not only is the company’s vaccine, known as Dengvaxia, not necessarily effective at preventing the disease, but it can actually cause a previously uninfected person to get the virus. Even worse, it causes not just ordinary dengue fever, but severe dengue.

Federal agent alleges U.S. misconduct, cover-up in Bundy Ranch trial

A federal investigator is alleging prosecutors in the Bundy Ranch standoff trial covered up misconduct by law enforcement agents who engaged in "likely policy, ethical and legal violations."

In an 18-page memo to the Assistant U.S. Attorney General, Special Agent Larry Wooten said he "routinely observed ... a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct" among agents involved in the 2014 armed standoff.

He said his investigation indicated federal agents engaged in excessive force, civil rights and policy violations.

VR ROBOTS WILL DO SPACE WORK & DEFUSE BOMBS - WHERE HUMANS CAN’T VENTURE (VIDEO)

New software by Brown University is allowing humans to virtually step into the shoes of their robot creations, boosting the snap decision-making of machines and helping to ensure they never get out of control.
Robots have increased human productivity and mitigate risk factors for first responders in dangerous environments, like nuclear fallout zones or scenes where explosives may be present. One example is the army of bots that led the clean-up charge of the nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan, albeit with mixed results.

Now scientists from Rhode Island’s Brown University have developed and sharpened a system that facilitates the operation of robots through a virtual reality headset and body sensors. The technique is being billed as an attempt to rid robotics of unwieldy keyboards and remote controls once and for all.

The Carnegie Council Calls for Global Governance to Regulate Geoengineering

By Derrick Broze

As the Carnegie Council calls for global governance to regulate climate engineering, advocates and opponents of the controversial technology prepare for a looming policy debate.

On December 8, the Carnegie Council released an essay calling for policymakers to invest resources into creating new forms of governance as a response to increasing calls for climate engineering, or geoengineering. The essay is part of a growing push for funding for research into the controversial science of modifying or engineering the climate, and a recent push towards global government which could regulate the technology...

Stop sleeping with your cell phone: Anything closer than arm's length could cause cancer and infertility, health officials warn

The California Department of Health warned that people need to keep their cell phones several feet away from them to reduce radiation exposure and health risks.

California released guidance for reducing exposure to cell phone radiation on Thursday, amid mounting evidence that cell phone use may be linked to cancer, attention, mental health and reproductive health issues.

Cell phones transmit information using low frequency radio signals, which may expose us to unhealthy radiation, especially when streaming or downloading large files.

DARPA Can Exterminate Humanity: ‘You Could Feasibly WIPE OUT The Human Race’

One of the most dangerous experiments that mankind has ever embarked upon is DARPA’s desire for gene drive technology. Scientists now have the knowledge and the tools they need to create and deliver “Doomsday genes” which can selectively target and exterminate an entire species.

According to Sputnik News, and as previously reported by SHTFPlan, the United States highly-secretive and advanced military research body DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) announced that it will invest tens of millions of dollars into genetic extinction research. While the official aim of this research is said to be fighting harmful insects, like mosquitos which carry Malaria, there are significantly darker implications and speculations surrounding the possible use of such a tool.

US states consider using powerful fentanyl to execute inmates

Fentanyl, a potent drug playing a major role in the US opioid crisis described by Donald Trump as a "plague," is now under consideration for use in lethal cocktails to execute inmates.

The states of Nevada and Nebraska are planning to supply prison executioners with the opioid painkiller -- which killed more than 20,000 people in the United States in 2016 -- drawing criticism from doctors and activists who call the move a dangerous human experiment.

They warn of serious risks posed to death row prisoners, who effectively become guinea pigs against their will.

Fentanyl, which also acts as an anesthetic, is 50 times more powerful than heroin and up to 100 times stronger than morphine.

The bid to use fentanyl as a capital punishment tool is due to a shortage of drugs normally used in lethal injections and is not grounded in scientific analysis, according to Deborah Denno, an expert on lethal injection at Fordham University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think that the death penalty, as carried out in the United States, is morally wrong and repugnant, because it is inevitably the poor, and poorly legally represented, criminals who have this sentence passed upon them.

A Hillary Clinton, even if she started stabbing people to death in broad daylight, in front of witnesses (of course, someone like her most probably has assassins on speed dial, but I digress), would never have such sentence imposed upon her due to her personal wealth and connections.

She would, of course, have the money to hire a "dream team" of attornies to get the charges either dropped, or substantially modified. And she would not spend one day in jail, following her plea bargain.

Not so for America's poor.

And the chain of evidence, including DNA evidence, is handled so sloppily here in the United States that there is a national student movement, called the innocence project, to exonerate wrongly accused and convicted people through examining DNA evidence:

The Innocence Project

That the US needs such an organisation is an horrific embarrassment to its judicial process.

Until we can restore life to those wrongly executed, the US penal system has no right in taking it. I am no snowflake or bleeding heart; but life incarceration at hard labor, seems to me to be a reasonable alternative to execution.
