Our police are trained in Israel now and more and more are now treating everyone, (not just blacks) like the enemy the same way Isreal treats Palestinians. AND THERE IS A REASON – BECAUSE THEY SCREWED US AND THEY KNOW IT, AND FEAR BACKLASH.
Obama seeks increased funding for training and body cameras, but says no to halting the flow of military equipment to local police forces. Never let a crisis go to waste. Sounds like our nation’s police forces are about to be Common Cored — or, that the military training they have been receiving for some time is now going to be out in the open and “for our own good.”
Researchers at the NIH campus in Bethesda say an experimental vaccine to prevent the Ebola virus was well-tolerated and produced immune system responses in the 20 adults part of the agency’s first clinical trial.
“Based on these positive results from the first human trial of this candidate vaccine, we are continuing our accelerated plan for larger trials to determine if the vaccine is efficacious in preventing Ebola infection,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. “The unprecedented scale of the current Ebola outbreak in West Africa has intensified efforts to develop safe and effective vaccines, which may play a role in bringing this epidemic to an end and undoubtedly will be critically important in preventing future large outbreaks.” Continue reading “Obama to congratulate NIH on experimental Ebola vaccine tomorrow”
Conflict Kitchen is a very interesting restaurant near Carnegie-Mellon and the University of Pittsburgh, which serves food from countries the U.S. is “in conflict with.” The menu changes periodically. It is a very unusual restaurant with an unusual mission, partly funded by The Heinz Foundation, and now controversial, because the focus country is Palestine, which has upset our “friend” Israel. Apparently it is forbidden to attempt to put a human face on Palestinians through exploration of their food and culture.

I was just thinking about how there seems to be an increase of nationwide recalls of processed foods contaminated with Listeria, and how there is now also an increase in people hypervigilant about “Ebola-like symptoms,” and so maybe just something to keep in mind. It would not be difficult to mistake one for another, in a panic. Also it is interesting to me that this particular recall (chosen at random) is for processed foods used by institutions and airlines, among others. I think it would be a good idea for people to really think about where their food and drink comes from, before putting it in their mouth. Safest of all is to make it yourself. Continue reading “Listeria can cause “Ebola like” symptoms”
County governments on individual islands in Hawaii may have stirred the pot when it comes to genetically modified crop and pesticide use, but U.S. District Court Judge Barry M. Kurren has now ordered them out of the kitchen.
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victim may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated, but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”—C.S. Lewis
Surveillance cameras, government agents listening in on your phone calls, reading your emails and text messages and monitoring your spending, mandatory health care, sugary soda bans, anti-bullying laws, zero tolerance policies, political correctness: these are all outward signs of a government—i.e., a societal elite—that believes it knows what is best for you and can do a better job of managing your life than you can. Continue reading “The Tyranny of the Nanny State, Where the Government Knows What’s Best for You”
The intensive militarization of America’s police forces is a serious menace about which a small number of people have been loudly warning for years, with little attention or traction. In a 2007 paper on “the blurring distinctions between the police and military institutions and between war and law enforcement,” the criminal justice professor Peter Kraska defined “police militarization” as “the process whereby civilian police increasingly draw from, and pattern themselves around, the tenets of militarism and the military model.”
FERGUSON, Mo. — For the past week in Ferguson, reporters have been using the McDonald’s a few blocks from the scene of Michael Brown’s shooting as a staging area. Demonstrations have blown up each night nearby. But inside there’s WiFi and outlets, so it’s common for reporters to gather there.
This is just info, and I’m not sure what it may mean if anything, but if others report it, could mean something.
I live near DC in the Maryland suburbs, and today I’m hearing an unusual amount of jet noise. This reminds me of the fighter jets that flew over the city after 9-11. However, those were low flying jets. This is much higher/quieter. But it has been fairly constant all day, and it is getting me wondering what may be going on. Continue reading “More jet noise than usual over DC today”
In Britain, at the present time, around one third of general hospital patients are suffering from cancer. Two out of five of the population have, or will develop, the disease. If we accept the figures, for cancer incidence, of 30 percent in 1980, 40 percent now and 50 percent in the year 2010, at the present rate of increase the figure will reach 100 percent around 2080. A multitude of factors suggest that the rise is set to accelerate. Continue reading “The Cancer Business”
In a recent study, a team of French researchers discovered that the way pesticides, herbicides and fungicides are currently evaluated for safety is entirely misleading.
Under current regulatory practice, only some of the ingredients are tested for toxicity, and the patented formula as a whole is not tested at all. When these researchers tested the whole formula, they discovered that some pesticides are, in fact, up to one thousand times more toxic to humans than they are commonly presumed to be. Continue reading “Pesticides Found to be Far More Toxic than Previously Believed”
