Solar Impulse performs a spectacular fly-by past the Statue of Liberty as it finishes crossing America on groundbreaking trip round the world

A solar-powered airplane finished crossing the United States on Saturday, landing in New York City after flying over the Statue of Liberty during its historic bid to circle the globe.

The spindly, single-seat experimental aircraft, dubbed Solar Impulse 2, arrived at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport at about 4 a.m. local time after it took off about five hours beforehand at Lehigh Valley International Airport in Pennsylvania.

'Such a pleasure to land in #NYC! For the 14th time we celebrate sustainability,' said the project's co-founder Andre Borschberg on Twitter after flying over the city and the Statue of Liberty during the 14th leg of the trip around the globe.

Spaceship ‘Could Survive’ Journey Through Black Hole to Another Universe

Numerous science fiction books and films have tabled various scenarios as to what an interaction with a black hole might produce. The results have ranged from epiphany, to time travel, to ultimate peril. From Disney’s 1979 classic, Black Hole, to the 1997 sci-fi noir film Event Horizon, and later with the 2014 blockbuster hit Interstellar, which imagined what it would be like for a spaceship traveling through a wormhole – it remains anyone’s guess what could happen in this epic confrontation between relativity and the singularity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The main problem when approaching the event horizon of a Black Hole is the gravity gradient, otherwise known as tidal forces. Just as the gravity of the Moon piles up water on both sides of the Earth, the portion of your starship closer to the event horizon would be attracted far more strongly than the rear portion. Under the intense gravity differential, no known material could withstand the strain; certainly not the carbon-based life forms inside the ship. It would tear apart and you would be lucky to get bits and pieces of the tools flying back out. Hence, all that would remain of your trillion-dollar space mission would be one (wait for it) star mangled spanner! :)

Largest Rocket Launch now set for Saturday

America's largest rocket is set to launch a classified satellite into Earth's orbit on Saturday afternoon after stormy weather forced the postponement of Thursday's launch.

The massive Delta IV Heavy rocket will be used to send a large satellite into Earth's orbit for the National Reconnaissance Office; however, the exact details of the satellite and its mission have not been released to the public.

The launch was originally scheduled for Thursday afternoon, but rain, clouds and lightning near the launch pad made the launch unsafe, so the launch was moved to 1:51 p.m. EDT Saturday.

As of Thursday morning, the Air Force's 45th Weather Squadron was predicting that the weather conditions would improve for Saturday, but there is still a 40 percent chance that the weather could interfere with the launch.

The primary weather concerns on Saturday will continue to be rain and thunderstorms, although the thunderstorms are not expected to be as widespread as they will be on Thursday.

‘The law has been broken routinely’: Sci

Water departments in at least 33 cities across 17 states were found to have “cheated” for over a decade on tests to conceal dangerous levels of lead in their water supplies. The scientist who discovered the Flint water contamination joined RT to discuss.

“We have a 25-year-old law that protects people from lead in the drinking water, and unfortunately that law has been broken routinely around the country,” Virginia Tech University Professor Marc Edwards told RT.

“For the last 10 years, people were doing sampling in water that made lead look low when they were reporting it to the EPA, but it was high when children were drinking it. And the EPA effectively condoned this ‘cheating’ as I call it until at least the Flint story became an international embarrassment,” stated Edwards.

It’s Taking Way Too Long For The FDA To Recall Tainted Food

The Food and Drug Administration is too slow to order companies to recall tainted foods, leaving people at risk of illness and death, a government watchdog said in a review of the agency’s food safety program.

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General reviewed 30 recalls that occurred between 2012 and 2015, including two in which companies did not recall all affected items until 165 days and 81 days after the FDA became aware of tainted foods. The watchdog issued its report on Wednesday.

“FDA does not have adequate policies and procedures to ensure that firms take prompt and effective action in initiating voluntary food recalls,” the report said. “As a result, consumers remained at risk of illness or death for several weeks after FDA was aware of a potentially hazardous food in the supply chain.”

The watchdog urged the FDA to address the problem immediately.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because of their benign neglect of the US food chain, the FDA should be collectively sued out of existence.

The Federal Government can, and should do better by the American people, and there should be some very intense "bite" if Federal employees do not do their job, and make our food chain safe.

Mass. Senate Passes 10-Year Fracking Moratorium

The Massachusetts Senate approved a bill yesterday to place a ten-year moratorium on fracking and the disposal of fracking wastewater in the Commonwealth.

“Across the country, fracking is polluting drinking water and making families sick,” said Ben Hellerstein, State Director for Environment Massachusetts. “We applaud Senate leaders for taking steps to ensure this dirty drilling and its toxic waste never come to Massachusetts.”

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is a method of drilling that involves injecting millions of gallons of water, often laced with toxic chemicals, deep underground to fracture rock formations and release oil and gas...

Cannabis Saved This Man From One of the Worst Man-Made Disasters in US History

By Carey Wedler

Cannabis is increasingly known to treat a variety of ailments, but a new, unexpected use for the plant recently has emerged amid one of the worst man-made disasters in American history. Thousands of residents were sickened and evacuated when a decrepit methane storage well at SoCalGas’ northern Los Angeles Aliso Canyon facility ruptured, initiating a months-long blowout that unleashed 100,000 metric tons of methane into the atmosphere from October to February — though it’s possible an even higher volume was released.

Nuns Defy Marijuana Cultivation Ban in Californian Town and Grow the Plant to Heal the Sick

By Amando Flavio

Two self-proclaimed nuns from the city of Merced in the state of California, have defied a ban on cultivation of marijuana in the city, growing the plant for medical purpose.

Generally, medical marijuana is legal in California in pursuant to Proposition 215 in 1996 and Senate Bill 420. However, in July 2015, state governor Jerry Brown signed the Medical Cannabis Organ Transplant Act into law, targeting illegal marijuana growers.

The state also gave municipalities the power to create their own medical marijuana laws. This has allowed the city of Merced to make growing and selling of medical marijuana illegal. Although city officials claim the ban is temporal, two women living in the Central Valley of the city have hit local news headlines for defying the law...

Daily Ginger Reduces Risk of Both Hypertension and Heart Disease

By Dave Mihalovic

The medicinal components of ginger work primarily in the stomach and intestines. As an established folk remedy to treat motion sickness, nausea and osteoarthritis, daily consumption of ginger also does wonders for reducing the risk of high blood pressure and coronary heart disease.

Ginger is known to beat drugs in defeating cancer and many inflammatory processes. The University of Maryland Medical Center cites several preliminary studies that suggest ginger may also lower cholesterol and prevent blood from clotting. Stopping your blood from clotting can help people with heart disease, where blood vessels become clogged and lead to heart attack or stroke.

Now, data published in Nutrition indicated that daily ginger consumption was associated with an 8% lower risk of developing hypertension and a 13% lower risk of coronary heart disease in adults...

Family of autism specialist Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet says forensic evidence points to murder, impossible for bullet entry to be self-inflicted

Nearly one year has passed since Dr. Jeffrey Bradstreet, a renowned physician known for his skepticism of immunizations (particularly the MMR vaccine) and his progressive autism research was found dead, floating in a North Carolina river with a single gunshot wound.

Leading up to his death, Bradstreet was working with a highly controversial molecule that occurs naturally within the human body and is believed to be capable of treating and reversing autism.

Researchers claim that GcMAF (Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor), which becomes the GC protein after combining with vitamin D in the body, is effective for treating HIV, diabetes and diseases of the liver and kidneys. More importantly, GcMAF experts predict that the natural molecule has the potential to be a universal cure for cancer.

Solight Design - This is the link to find the solar powered lights described on today's radio show

Solight Design ™ makes beautifully-architected and sustainable home lighting products that appeal to the design and environmentally conscious consumer while providing lights to those in need.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last weekend, when Claire and I were staying on Kauai, the friend we stayed with showed us one of these lights. Our friend does a lot of charity work in Nepal, and is taking 50 of these units to a small village north of Kathmandu next month, to homes which do not have electricity and light their homes at night with kerosene lanterns. Although "romantic", kerosene lamps do produce carbon monoxide which is toxic, and can accumulate in closed spaces with poor ventilation.

The light is a very clever and portable design and good for campers, survivalists, and so forth. The impressive part is they produce a bright light and produce an hour of light for every hour of sunshine received during the day, far exceeding those solar powered lights people buy to illuminate their walkways in front of their homes.

Today's radio guest is the designer/inventor of these products.

Further understanding of genetic blueprints could come from construction of large, gigabase (Gb)–sized animal and plant genomes, including the human genome, which would in turn drive development of tools and methods to facilitate large-scale synthesis and editing of genomes. To this end, we propose the Human Genome Project–Write (HGP-write)...

FLASHBACK - The Ringworm Scandal: When Israeli Doctors Killed Tens of Thousands of Arab Children

But unlike here, Israel allowed one senior health official, Dr. Chaim Sheba, to conduct a massive program of unnecessary medical treatments, at enormous expense, which actually killed many of the victims. At that time, many children developed ringworm, a non-lethal condition of fungal origin which affected the scalp. Unlike in other countries, 100,000 Jewish (and Palestinian) Arab children were irradiated in order to treat the condition. While medical protocol of the day directed that no technician receive a dose higher than .5 Roentgen, those treated could received a higher dose. A lethal dose was considered 200 Roentgen (R). The children treated received individual doses of 350R. Sometimes they received two doses (for a total of 600R). 6,000 of the victims died within the first year or so after treatment. To this day, many of the remaining victims suffer cancers, epilepsy, infertility and other brain disorders.

Seattle-Caught Salmon Found To Contain Cocaine, Antidepressants, And Pain Relievers

By Amanda Froelich

Salmon is purported to be one of the healthiest foods due to its high omega-3 content, protein, and essential fatty acids; but if the fish is obtained from the Puget Sound, it is anything but healthy.

According to a recent study, up to 81 drugs and personal-care products were detected in the flesh of salmon caught in the Puget Sound. Some of the drugs include Prozac, Advil, Benadryl, Lipitor, and even cocaine. The Seattle Times reports that the levels are believed to be so high because either people in the area use more of the drugs detected, or because waste water plants are unable to fully remove the chemicals during treatment. Another theory is that leaky septic tanks are contributing to the problem, as high fecal coliform counts were detected...

We Can’t Afford To Cure Cancer

Someone has said there are just too many jobs in the pursuit of a cancer cure to allow any therapy to be proven and put into practice. Recognize the nation is dotted with cancer research centers that hold billions of dollars of debt. For example, the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, Washington holds $176 million of debt. [Moody’s Investor Service] Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, the nation’s cancer research center, holds $1.9 billion of debt. [Moody’s Investor Service] A cancer cure would leave research centers like these on the hook for loans that could not possibly be paid back.

Better for cancer research centers to live off the $4.95 billion of research grants that get divvied out by the National Institutes of Health each year than to find a cure.

In light of this revelation, the public may be better served by private enterprise that is not reliant on public funding to find a cure for cancer.

'Minivan-sized' sea creature discovered off Hawaii

Two Hawaii scientists believe they've come across one of them, and it's a jaw-dropping wonder.
A "minivan-sized" sea sponge was discovered deep in the ocean near Hawaii, according to findings published this week in the scientific journal Marine Biodiversity.
Scientists aboard the NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer spotted the massive sea creature at a depth of 7,000 feet within the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, a protected U.S. National Monument spanning 140,000 square miles of ocean, during a month-long expedition from July to August of 2015.

This Scientist’s Ability to Hack Your Dreams May Be the Stuff of Nightmares

By James Holbrooks

“So we spend a twelfth of our life dreaming. And most of it is forgotten. What if we could peek inside our brain and see our dreams? Maybe even … shape them.”

This is how a professor of neuroscience and business at Northwestern University opened his TED talk back in February. His presentation, posted by TED in March, is titled “Moran Cerf: This scientist can hack your dreams.”

“I am a neuroscientist,” Dr. Cerf continues, “and I study how thinking works inside the brain.”

By the time he was 24, Moran Cerf had received a B.S. in Physics and an M.A. in Philosophy from Tel Aviv University. He went on to earn a Ph.D. in neuroscience from Caltech by age 31, in 2009...

The U.S. Military Personnel’s Smoking Gun Documentation Regarding the Anthrax Vaccine

If readers thought information a CDC whistleblower revealed in the movie VAXXED was disturbingly shocking, absolutely regrettable, and pure scientific fraud, what you are about to learn regarding the Anthrax vaccines given to U.S. military personnel, plus how the U.S. government and armed services top brass reacted regarding Anthrax-vaccine injuries, aka “Gulf War Syndrome,” and subsequently neglected vaccine-damaged service people ought to have everyone in this country, regardless of your stand on vaccinations—and especially the U.S. Congress—literally “up in arms” demanding ALL vaccinations be stopped as “crimes against humanity.”

Readers won’t believe the in-person testimonials they hear! Furthermore, as mentioned in this Democracy Now 45 minute exposé “Direct Order”, even the Hitler regime didn’t do that to its military personnel!

FEDS SET TO APPROVE PRIVATE MOON MISSION

Startup Proposes to Land Payload of Scientific Gear on Lunar Surface Some Time Next Year

U.S. officials appear poised to make history by approving the first private space mission to go beyond Earth’s orbit, according to people familiar with the details.

The government’s endorsement would eliminate the largest regulatory hurdle to plans by Moon Express, a relatively obscure space startup, to land a roughly 20-pound package of scientific hardware on the Moon sometime next year.

It also would provide the biggest federal boost yet for unmanned commercial space exploration and, potentially, the first in an array of for-profit ventures throughout the solar system.

Use of Term “FDA” Should Always Trigger a Warning

By Jon Rappoport

“In 1957, the FDA burned all the books of dissident physician Wilhelm Reich, M.D., smashed his laboratory equipment with axes, and threw him in jail, where he died.”—Robert Anton Wilson, High Times, March 2001.

Unless you’ve been living in cave on a remote mountain, you know the FDA has been coming down harder on nutritional companies that publish health claims for their products. Such claims trigger investigations and harassment.

But you see, this arrangement is backwards.

The use of the term “FDA” should be the trigger for immediate investigation, whenever it appears. For example, “The FDA has ruled (name of drug) is safe and effective.” Boom. Probe.

Why? Obviously, the FDA is a rogue criminal organization, which is guilty of massive RICO felonies. That’s why...

Turmeric vs. Tuberculosis: This superfood can supercharge your immune system for robust protection

Dr. Xiyuan Bai and his team found curcumin to be a potent apoptosis inducer. This is a mechanism used by macrophages, a special kind of white blood cells involved in the immune response, to clear out foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, cancer cells or cellular waste.

In their experiments, they used an in vitro human macrophage infection model to study the effects of curcumin extracts on Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Curcumin was able to boost the macrophages' ability to kill and eliminate the tuberculosis bacteria. The process relies on the inhibition of a cellular molecule, called nuclear factor-kappa B.

Chemical Contamination Leaves 100,000 Alabama Residents Without Drinking Water

As the Flint water crisis has shown us, sometimes the quality of America’s water infrastructure is not what you’d expect in a developed nation. However, the problems with our tap water are not just found in a few impoverished municipalities. In fact, dangerous chemicals and pathogens can be found in faucets all over America.

Case in point, the West Morgan-East Lawrence Water Authority in Alabama just advised 100,000 of their customers to stop using their tap water for drinking or cooking. According to the general manager of the Water Authority, who spoke at a press conference on Friday, “I recommend that all our customers do not drink our water, until we are able to bring the temporary system our engineer is designing online.” That includes water that has been boiled or cleaned with Brita-style filters, neither of which can remove the contaminants.

New fruit-flavored ADHD drug latest ploy to get our kids hooked

It’s chewable, fruit-flavored and OK’d for children as young as six.

And experts are calling it a recipe for disaster.

I’m talking about Adzenys, the latest attempt by Big Pharma to get young kids hooked on ADHD meds.

The company behind Adzenys is getting ready to roll it out to thousands of doctors across the country.

But before Adzenys shows up at your pediatrician’s office, there are some serious risks that every parent and grandparent needs to know about.

And one of those risks includes sudden death.

IS world getting more volcanic? Huge magma build-up under town with NO volcano

Molten rock has been quiet building up underneath the town of Matata, New Zealand, enough to push up the surface by 40cm

Scientists have confirmed discovering the magma buildup near the town with a population of 650 people, which they fear signals the beginnings of a new volcano.

Geophysicist Ian Hamling said enough magma to fill 80,000 Olympic-size swimming pools has pushed up beneath the land near the coastal town, which is 120 miles south-east of Auckland, since the 1950s.

Its discovery helps explains a spate of earthquakes in the area between 2004 and 2011.

Fukushima and Nuclear Power: Does the Advertising Giant Dentsu Pull the Strings of Japan’s Media?

French journalist Mathieu Gaulène describes the business practices of Dentsu and its competitor Hakuhodo, the biggest and the second biggest advertising companies of Japan respectively. Specifically, it examines how their close relations to the media and the nuclear industry play out in the wake of the 3.11 earthquake, tsunami and nuclear disaster. Focusing Dentsu, Gaulène discusses how the marketing and public relations (PR) giant has dominated major media which large advertising contracts from the nuclear industry. The article is particularly timely as Dentsu unveils its deep ties to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic bid and the Panama Papers. Regrettably, however, with rare exceptions, there is little media coverage of the influence of Dentsu in mainstream Japanese newspapers and magazines.

Offbeat: Men raid vegan café, pelt patrons with meat

In Georgia – the country, not the state – men raided a vegan café and pelted patrons with meat. "Some of them," the story says, " . . . were wearing sausage necklaces," which seems to be a bold and possibly odoriferous, bacteria-prone fashion choice. Then a brawl broke out and the assailants escaped into the night. The whole episode, the café owners say, shows just how intolerant people are. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, owners of a vegan café say they've been getting death threats since they decided to start eating meat again. Talk about your food fights.

"One of the most intriguing might-have-beens in American History"

Jefferson's Tardy Constitution
by Jack Lynch

Americans are so accustomed to associating Thomas Jefferson with the nation's founding documents that they easily overlook that he played no hands-on role in composing the United States Constitution.

He recorded his first impressions November 13, 1787, in a letter to William S. Smith: "There are very good articles in it: & very bad. I do not know which preponderate."

Disturbing for Jefferson was "the abandonment in every instance of the necessity of rotation in office." Experience had convinced him that, without term limits, every elected official will be "an officer for life." That Constitution's neglect of this problem was for him a nearly fatal flaw.

More than one-third of refugees in Vermont test positive for tuberculosis

Data from the Vermont Department of Health show that more than one-third of refugees resettled in Vermont test positive for tuberculosis. Since 2013, about 900 refugees admitted to the Green Mountain State have been tested for tuberculosis, a potentially fatal infectious disease affecting the lungs. Of that number, 318 refugees, or 35.4 percent, tested positive. Watchdog.org obtained the health data on Wednesday following reporting by Stateline that the disease may be making a comeback in the United States.

Who are the Syrian Desert Hawks?

The Syrians have their own proxy army.

In a matter of two years, the Syrian Desert Hawks (var. Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) have become one of the most effective fighting forces in the Syrian War; however, very little is known about this paramilitary group.
Often described as a unit from the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (var. NDF), the Desert Hawks actually have no affiliation with the latter or the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The man behind the Desert Hawks:
The Desert Hawks were originally started by a retired Syrian Army officer, General Mohammad Jaber, in early 2013.

The Desert Hawks are now leading the charge to the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa, where they are looking to expel the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham before the U.S. backed rebels reach the city.

Biological Meltdown: The Loss of Agricultural Biodiversity

Agricultural biodiversity refers to that part of biodiversity that feeds and nurtures people--whether it is derived from the genetic resources of plants, animals, fish or forests. We are losing genetic resources for food and agriculture at an unprecedented rate. It can best be described as a biological meltdown. The statistics are numbing:

Crop genetic resources are being wiped out at the rate of 1-2% every year. Since the beginning of this century, about 75% of the genetic diversity of agricultural crops has been lost.

Livestock breeds are disappearing at an annual rate of 5%, or 6 breeds per month. In Europe, half of all breeds of domestic animals that existed at the turn of the century have become extinct, and 43% of the remaining breeds are endangered.

US Taxpayers Forced to Pay $3 Billion for Damages in Vaccine Lawsuits — Not the Drug Companies

So-called 'Trillion Meal Study' of GMO safety is junk

A new study about the purported safety of genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, was released to the public this month by former Monsanto employee Dr. Alison Van Eenennaam. The Monsanto Company is best known for creating and marketing genetically modified seeds that contain their own pesticides or which are designed to withstand applications of the company’s flagship herbicide Roundup (active ingredient: glyphosate).

Dr. Van Eenennaam’s study has been loudly touted by pro-GMO talking-heads, who claim it has “ended the debate” about the safety of GMOs in the food chain. The claim is impressive: over 100 billion animals consuming a total exceeding 1 trillion meals of genetically modified grain over a 19-year period show no statistical difference in health when compared with livestock fed a conventional diet.

Unfortunately for Van Eenennaam (and the circus of biotech industry bloggers promoting her), the claim is not supported by the evidence in her meta-analysis of livestock data.

Genetically modified Golden Rice falls short on lifesaving promises – new study

The article below appears just a couple of weeks after GMO zealot Matt Ridley published an Opinion piece in The Times titled, “Time to embrace GM crops... and reap the rewards”.

Ridley wrote: ”It is a disgrace that Greenpeace still campaigns against golden rice, a vitamin-enhanced variety that could save hundreds of thousands of lives a year."

But a study published in April (abstract at the foot of this post) by Glenn Davis Stone, professor of anthropology and environmental studies at Washington University in St Louis, and Dominic Glover, a rice researcher at the Institute for Development Studies at the University of Sussex, shows that anti-GMO activists are not to blame for Golden Rice’s unfulfilled promises. The fact is that the rice still isn’t ready, after 24 years of research and millions of dollars in funding.

Why You Should Avoid Palm Oil Like The Plague

Waking Times Media

Palm oil is used in many things from chips and baked goods to shampoo and cleaning products to an oil used for cooking. It is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world. It even sounds healthier because it’s different from GMO vegetable oil like canola. It comes from a palm fruit grown on an African oil palm tree so what could be unhealthy, harmful, or unsustainable about that? Well it’s contributing to the death of thousands of orangutans and many other animals who live in the forests. Not to mention, it’s affecting the indigenous people and the environment
