Chinese scientists mull power station in space

The battle to dispel smog, cut greenhouse gases and solve the energy crisis is moving to space.

Chinese scientists are mulling the construction of a solar power station 36,000 kilometers above ground.

If realized, it will surpass the scale of the Apollo project and the International Space Station, and be the largest-ever space project.

The power station would be a super spacecraft on a geosynchronous orbit equipped with huge solar panels. The electricity generated would be converted to microwaves or lasers and transmitted to a collector on Earth.

The Empire Strikes Back: Poison Is “Natural”

The processed food industry is seeking to turn back the global movement toward organic and non-GMO food by promoting its often unwholesome products as healthful and nutritious. In mid-March the Associated Press released a detailed report on how Coca-Cola commissioned fitness and nutrition “experts” to promote its high-fructose corn syrup-laden soft drinks as part of a healthy diet.

Fractivists Bust Up Aquifer Exemption Workshop

We found out about this “aquifer exemption workshop” where the regulators would outline “the data requirements and process for requesting an aquifer exemption under the Safe Drinking Water Act,” so Big Oil could continue to pollute our drinking water. Californians Against Fracking, a coalition of over 200 organizations in the state, was planning to do a demonstration outside the workshop. But some of us wanted to go one step further and actually disrupt the meeting.

BPA Cuts Fertility in Fish Three Generations Later

The offspring of fish exposed to Bisphenol A (BPA) have decreased fertility and increased embryo mortality three generations later. A new study suggests that exposed humans and their children could be affected in the same way.

BPA is a chemical that is used in a variety of consumer products, including water bottles, dental composites, and resins used to line metal food and beverage containers. Aquatic environments such as rivers and streams often become reservoirs for these endocrine-disrupting chemicals.

“BPA has been proven to mimic the function of natural hormones in animals and humans,” says Ramji Bhandari, an assistant research professor of biological sciences at the University of Missouri and a visiting scientist with the US Geological Survey.

Does Fracking Bring Opportunities or Danger?

Video - Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side, there’s the gas drilling companies; on the other, citizens opposed to this drilling method and concerned about the environmental impact.

This video focuses mostly on the ongoing debate about fraking in Europe. In many European countries, such as Germany, there is a public outcry against fracking. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us, considering our high energy consumption and the dangers fraking can pose to our drinking water.

Guinea: Border Closed Over Ebola Fears

Guinea closed its border with Sierra Leone on Monday as part of new efforts to stamp out Ebola, an official said. The long-running Ebola outbreak in West Africa has killed more than 10,300 people, mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Liberia has no Ebola patients at this point, and Sierra Leone has recently seen a fairly steady decline in cases. But the disease remains entrenched in Guinea. Guinea’s president, Alpha Condé, said over the weekend that emergency measures would be “reinforced” for 45 days in five districts, including some on the Sierra Leone border. Its closing was part of those measures, Cmdr. Mamadou Alpha Barry, spokesman for the national gendarmerie, said.

Survival Basics: Using Oxygen Absorbers for Food Storage

by Gaye Levy

When I first started getting serious about food storage, I found myself facing an entirely new vocabulary of food storage terms. It should come as no surprise that one of those terms was “Oxygen Absorber”. At the time, I had no clue as what they were and how to use them.

Oxygen absorbers, also known as O2 absorbers, are a mystery to many. Not a week goes by when I am not asked for guidance as to how to use them. Rather than answer those questions individually, today I am sharing an updated primer on oxygen absorbers with just enough information to get you started on the road to successfully storing bulk foods for the long term...

What is Open Source Lab Equipment?

by Brian Berletic

One of the biggest obstacles to getting into biology, particularly genetics and synthetic biology, is the cost of equipment and expendables. A handful of large companies make the unique, precise equipment required for laboratories; and because supply and demand is small, the cost is very high.

Usually, this price barrier would make biology inaccessible to regular people, that was until personal manufacturing and open source hardware weighed in...

Who pulled out the plug? The ‘bathtub ring’ on the banks of the Colorado river that’s thousands of miles long

Eleven of the past 14 years have been droughts for Lake Powell reservoir
Reservoir at Arizona-Utah border is 45 per cent below ‘full pool’ capacity
Lake will drop even further as it gives water to Hoover Dam’s Lake Mead

A drought in the western United States has left water levels in the Colorado River basin far below their normal levels.

Lake Powell, a reservoir at the Arizona-Utah border, is 45 per cent below its capacity, and the lack of water has left a ‘bathtub ring’ at the bottom of its majestic rock formations.

The lake, from which the Colorado eventually snakes through Grand Canyon National Park, has lost 4.4 trillion gallons of water in a recent drought.

Study Reveals Sad Link Between Poverty And Children's Brain Development

We've long known that children from affluent families get a head start that can translate into a long-lasting advantage, especially when it comes to academic achievement. Now, scientists have found what may be part of the explanation: Children who grow up in higher-income families appear to have larger brains.

Researchers from nine universities across the country, led by neuroscientists at Children's Hospital Los Angeles and Columbia University Medical Center, conducted a major new study of the effects of family income and parental education on child and adolescent brain development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When kids go to school hungry, they can't learn. When they are chronically hungry, it affects brain development. And as reported at the Washingtonpost.com in October of last year:

The United States ranks near the bottom of the pack of wealthy nations on a measure of child poverty, according to a new report from UNICEF. Nearly one third of U.S. children live in households with an income below 60 percent of the national median income in 2008 - about $31,000 annually. In the richest nation in the world, one in three kids live in poverty. Let that sink in.

If indeed, "children are our future", this US government has collectively made the decision that the future of this country...is expendable.

Community Seed Sharing Increasingly Branded as ‘Illegal’

Aaron Dykes

Growing your own is under threat, particularly with moves to criminalize seed sharing within communities and seed libraries.

The powers that be would love for people to simply stop growing their own food crops, and in particular from growing any viable self-sustaining communities.

John Kohler of the popular Learn Organic Gardening at GrowingYourGreens You Tube channel, interviews some key figures about the mounting issue of targeting small scale seed libraries by demonizing them and what they represent.

Pesticide in fruit and veg could harm man's fertility: Men who eat high levels have half the sperm count of those who ate the least

Pesticides in fruit and vegetables may lead to lower sperm counts of poorer quality, warn researchers.

Men who ate the most fruit and vegetables with high levels of pesticide residue had half the sperm count of men consuming the least.

A new US study also shows a drop of one-third in normally-formed sperm among men consuming most pesticide residue.

But the total amount of fruit and vegetables eaten was not linked to changes in measurements of semen quality in the group overall.

Herbicides used with GM crops alter antibiotic resistance of disease-causing bacteria

A new study has found that exposure to the herbicides used on GM crops changes how susceptible disease-causing bacteria are to antibiotics. In many cases the bacteria became more antibiotic-resistant, though in other cases they became less so. The study was carried out by Prof Jack Heinemann, Dr Brigitta Kurenbach, and other scientists from New Zealand and Mexico. Below Prof Heinemann and Dr Kurenbach respond to questions from GMWatch.

GMW: What did you find?

Heinemann: When we exposed either of two different species of bacteria to common herbicides that we purchased at a local store, we found that the bacteria changed their response to antibiotics. They often became antibiotic resistant, but we also occasionally saw increased susceptibility or no effect.

Sierra Leone Ebola lockdown exposes hundreds of suspected cases

A three-day lockdown in Sierra Leone has exposed hundreds of potential new cases of Ebola, aiding efforts to bring to an end an epidemic that has already killed 3,000 people in the country.

Officials ordered the country's 6 million residents to stay indoors or face arrest during the period that ended late on Sunday as hundreds of health officials went door-to-door looking for hidden patients and educating residents about the virus.

Reports to authorities of sick people increased by 191 percent in Western Area, which includes the capital, during the lockdown compared with the previous weekend, said Obi Sesay of the National Ebola Response Center.

Monsanto and spinoff ArborGen set their sights on GM trees and grasses

In recent years, Monsanto and ArborGen have been developing GM trees including trees modified to withstand Monsanto's Roundup, trees designed with a reduced lignin content to appeal to paper making and construction industries (lignin gives trees their strength and rigidity) and "terminator trees" which don't produce seeds. In Hawaii, there has already been a contamination issue with GM papaya - the world's first commercially planted genetically engineered tree.

One of the GM trees currently being readied planting is GM Eucalyptus, despite numerous unresolved and unstudied concerns such as:

*Cryptococcus neoformans gattii, a yeast pathogen hosted by a variety of Eucalyptus species. It causes systemic fungal infections in humans, leading to fungal meningitis and death.

Lawmakers Declare Vaccines Essential to ‘National Security’ After Taking Money from Big Pharma

The absurdly titled “Vaccines Save Lives” initiative declares into existence an alternate universe in which vaccines are 100% safe and effective. Introduced by Representatives Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Charlie Dent (R-Penn.), Thomas Marino (R-Penn.) and Peter Welch (D-Vt.), the resolution “affirms [that] vaccines and immunizations save lives and are essential to maintain the public health, economic and national security of the people of the United States.”

By dressing up in patriotic terms such draconian nonsense, the politicians behind this decree aim to crystallize in the public groupthink the idea that vaccines are nothing less than God’s gift to mankind. Without them, claims these corporate hacks, there would be “a true public health crisis” that puts mostly children at risk.

Fracking Town’s Desperate Laid-off Workers: ‘They Don’t Tell You It’s All a Lie’

From the looks of it, the nation’s boomtown is still booming. Big rigs, cement mixers and oil tankers still clog streets built for lighter loads. The air still smells like diesel fuel and looks like a dust bowl— all that traffic — and natural gas flares, wasted byproducts of the oil wells, still glare out at the night sky like bonfires.

Not to mention that Walmart, still the main game in town, can’t seem to get a handle on its very long lines and half­ empty shelves.

HOW CALIFORNIA'S DROUGHT WORKS: WE GROW FRUITS, NUTS AND VEGETABLES IN A DESERT WITH GOVERNMENT-SUBSIDIZED WATER

Agriculture is the heart of California’s worsening water crisis, and the stakes extend far beyond the state’s borders. Not only is California the world’s eighth largest economy, it is an agricultural superpower. It produces roughly half of all the fruits, nuts, and vegetables consumed in the United States—and more than 90 percent of the almonds, tomatoes, strawberries, broccoli and other specialty crops—while exporting vast amounts to China and other overseas customers.? Consuming 80 percent of California’s developed water but accounting for only 2 percent of the state’s GDP, agriculture thrives while everyone else is parched.

Police fire tear gas on crowd during Sierra Leone Ebola lockdown

Police fired tear gas at an angry crowd fighting over food supplies in Sierra Leone on Saturday, while other residents defied a three-day national lockdown that the government hopes will accelerate the end of the Ebola epidemic.

Sierra Leone has reported nearly 12,000 cases and more than 3,000 deaths since the worst Ebola epidemic in history was detected in neighboring Guinea a year ago.

New cases have fallen sharply since a peak of more than 500 a week in December but the government says the lockdown, its second, is necessary to identify the last cases and to buck a worrying trend towards complacency.

News vs. sub-news: how the game works

On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published a devastating quote from a woman who, for 20 years, was an editor at one of the most prestigious medical journal in the world:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” —Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.

For any ambitious medical reporter, the quote could have been the jumping-off point for an investigation aimed at taking down medical journals and the whole peer-review system that underpins medical publishing.

But nothing happened. No dots were connected. The quote was left hanging in mid-air like a Hindenburg whose explosion had been indefinitely postponed.

RD:What can be done about public mistrust of vaccines?

KS:There are groups out there that insist that vaccines are responsible for a variety of problems despite all scientific evidence to the contrary. We have reached out to media outlets to try to get them to not give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting to what science has shown and continues to show about the safety of vaccines.

Government directly admits vaccines cause injury and death in table published by HHS

You might want to sit down for this one.

The government is not quite known for always being on the up-and-up when it comes to reporting certain information and making public what the public deserves to know. Information in documents has been blacked out with marker, loopholes change with the wind and doublespeak runs rampant. That, we know.

The warmest temperature ever recorded on the continent of Antarctica may have occurred on Tuesday, March 24, 2015, when the mercury shot up to 63.5°F (17.5°C) at Argentina's Esperanza Base on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. According to weather records researcher Maximiliano Herrera, the previous hottest temperature recorded in Antarctica was 63.3°F (17.4°C) set just one day previously at Argentina's Marambio Base, on a small islet just off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula. Prior to this week's remarkable heat wave, the hottest known temperature in Antarctica was the 62.8°F (17.1°C) recorded at Esperanza Base on April 24, 1961.

A team of scientists led by environmental physicist Randall Donohue, a research scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization in Australia, analyzed satellite data from 1982 through 2010. The scientists documented a carbon dioxide “fertilization effect” that has caused a gradual greening of the Earth, and particularly the Earth’s arid regions, since 1982. The satellite data showed rising carbon dioxide levels caused a remarkable 11 percent increase in foliage in arid regions since 1982, versus what would be the case if atmospheric carbon dioxide levels had remained at 1982 levels.

What the Public Now Deserves to Know About the Mass Murder Incident by Passenger Jet

Adverse side effects related to taking anti-depressant pharmaceutical drugs are well known. Numerous mass murders in conjunction with suicides were attributable to people who were under the influence of these drugs, which are being over-prescribed due to industry marketing pressure. (At least one in four women in the US are purportedly taking psychiatric medication.)

Nonetheless, according to Federal Aviation Authority regulations, pilots are not permitted to fly under the influence of such medication due to the harmful and potentially dangerous effects they can cause, including abnormal, self destructive, and violent behavior. This is simply a basic issue of public safety.

Recently, a senior research scientist at MIT predicted that glyphosate, the key ingredient in Roundup, will cause half of all children to have autism by 2025.

Farmers in El Salvador are acutely aware of the importance of producing their own seeds, and avoiding those from the bioengineering giant. The farmers, who have already been consistently outperforming Monsanto with their seed, as the local seed is far healthier and more productive, have just managed to bring about a giant defeat of Monsanto by preventing it from supplying El Salvador with its seeds. Recently, the Ministry of Agriculture released a new round of contracts to provide seed to subsistence farmers across the country.

Who You Gonna Believe? - Cancer and Infant Mortality at Three Mile Island

The partial meltdown at Three Mile Island, March 28, 1979, involved the loss-of-coolant, the melting of half its fuel, a hydrogen explosion in the “containment” building, [1] the uncontrolled, frightening buildup of explosive hydrogen in the reactor vessel, the venting of radioactive gases, and the dumping of contaminated water into a major source public drinking water. The accident caused such a scare that it ended the expansion of nuclear power in the US. Today, reactor builds can’t keep up with closures.

'Monsanto's Dream': Pro-GMO DARK Act Comes to Congress

The battle over genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, reached the U.S. capital on Wednesday when news broke that Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo will reintroduce a bill that blocks states from requiring GMO labeling.

The legislation, dubbed by critics the Deny Americans the Right-to-Know or DARK Act, grants the Secretary of Health and Human Services sole authority to mandate GMO labeling and sets forth particular standards for any label that contains claims that GMOs were or were not used in the production of the food— hampering any attempts by the Food and Drug Administration to pass legislation on the federal level.

Further, the bill preempts any local or state requirement and thus would overturn existing laws in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine, which critics say is a direct attack on state sovereignty. The bill was originally introduced under the last Congress.

One of Michael Donovan's classmates is among three students in the district who is infected.

"I wasn't vaccinated, and I don't think it's fair that I can't go to school," Michael, 11, said after his mother, Sarah, was called to the school to pick him up.

Leaving the school, she said she was "beyond not happy," referring to a district spokeswoman's comment earlier this week that some parents were not happy with the decision to exclude unvaccinated children from schools with confirmed chickenpox cases.

On February 11, 1985 the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate was first considered by an EPA panel, called the Toxicology Branch Ad Hoc Committee. The Committee, in a consensus review dated March 4, 1985, then classified glyphosate as a Class C Carcinogen.

As Obama said during a ceremony at the White House, it is about creating a network in which they have committed to participate more than 2,800 health care providers, patients and advocacy groups consumer to link payments for health care, more "quality" than the quantity of services provided.

Drug company treats to doctor should be public - experts

Doctors receiving payment, overseas holidays and generous hospitality from medical suppliers should be under public scrutiny, say some health and science experts.

Medical suppliers' treats and payments to doctors should be opened to public scrutiny under American-style "sunshine" legislation, say a group of health and science experts.

The United States law led to the disclosure of payments of US$3.5 billion ($4.61 billion) made to more than 500,000 doctors and 1360 teaching hospitals in five months of 2013.

Professor Cindy Farquhar, of Auckland University, and her colleagues say in today's NZ Medical Journal the law is needed to counter the "increasingly close relationship" between suppliers and health practitioners.

Germanwings jetliner catastrophe: The first antidepressant drug-induced mass murder of the skies?

The Mirror (UK) is now reporting that "Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz 'suffered burnout or depression' a few years ago, a former classmate has claimed."

The reported behavior of Andrea Lubitz is eerily similar to SSRI-drug-induced school shooters who have carried out mass murders in the United States (see detailed list below). In case after case, school shooters have been found to either be on prescription antidepressant drugs or have been recently taken off them, causing withdrawal side effects.

What U.S. school shootings and the Germanwings mass murder have in common is a dissociation from reality where individuals often think they are "playing a video game" and don't realize their actions are literally harming other people in the real world.

New Study: Monsanto’s Herbicides are Breeding Super Bugs

Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it had classified glyphosate, the United States’ most widely used herbicide chemical, as “probably carcinogenic to humans.” As if we need another reason to ban Roundup (which contains glyphosate), there is now evidence that the chemicals in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide also cause antibiotic resistance in harmful bacteria like Escherichia coli and Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium.

The study abstract states:

“Increasingly common chemicals…can induce a multiple-antibiotic resistance phenotype in potential pathogens. The effect occurs upon simultaneous exposure to antibiotics and is faster than the lethal effect of antibiotics. The magnitude of the induced response may undermine antibiotic therapy and substantially increase the probability of spontaneous mutation to higher levels of resistance.

Family receives $2 million in damages from vaccine court; mainstream media ignores case

By setting up a special kangaroo vaccine court, the supply of vaccines continues to multiply, even after people have been damaged by them.

This is an abandonment of true judicial process and accountability, essentially giving pharmaceutical companies a license to hurt others and write it off as a cost of doing business. To pay the families off, the federal Vaccine Court requires that vaccine manufacturer hand over 75 cents to a trust fund for every vaccine dose. To this multi-billion dollar vaccine industry, this 75-cent excise tax is just part of the cost of doing business, a cost which they can offset by raising their prices paid by taxpayer funds.

We’re treating soil like dirt. It’s a fatal mistake, as our lives depend on it

It’s literally and – it seems – metaphorically, beneath us. To judge by its absence from the media, most journalists consider it unworthy of consideration. But all human life depends on it. We knew this long ago, but somehow it has been forgotten. As a Sanskrit text written in about 1500BC noted: “Upon this handful of soil our survival depends. Husband it and it will grow our food, our fuel and our shelter and surround us with beauty. Abuse it and the soil will collapse and die, taking humanity with it.”

The issue hasn’t changed, but we have. Landowners around the world are now engaged in an orgy of soil destruction so intense that, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, the world on average has just 60 more years of growing crops. Even in Britain, which is spared the tropical downpours that so quickly strip exposed soil from the land, Farmers Weekly reports, we have “only 100 harvests left”.

FLASHBACK - VIKING, LIFE ON MARS, AND DR. GILBERT LEVIN

I wrote this article in response to a news report that appeared the other day in the UK Independent. There just might be life on Mars....Nasa Curiosity rover picks up mysterious methane 'burps' that could possibly be coming from alien organisms

The gist of the story is that Curiosity has been detecting sudden bursts of methane erupting from small areas on the surface of Mars. These methane bursts are not explainable by geological processes, which tend to result in methane flowing steadily from large areas. But colonies of bacteria just under the surface would generate methane, which would accumulate until there was enough pressure for a "burp" to pop up through the overhead dust. Curiosity is going to perform more tests to try to confirm biological activity, and when they do, we can count on the present day NASA management to claim credit for what will truly be an Earth-shaking discovery.

GM soybeans transfer mutated DNA to milk and decrease birth weight of newborn goats

the dangers of GM soybeans have once again been brought to light, this time in a study titled, "Genetically modified soybean in a goat diet: Influence on kid performance." Published in Small Ruminant Research, the official journal of the International Goat Association, the study details how the DNA of otherwise healthy goats was altered and passed on to their kids when they were fed genetically modified soybeans. As a result, the kids were found to have a lower birth weight.

Expert: America 'one-sided' on climate change. 74 percent of Americans said the federal government should be doing a substantial amount to combat climate change.

Stanford University professor Jon Krosnick has been studying Americans' attitudes about global warming for nearly two decades and has found in repeated polls that a large majority see climate change as a threat to future generations that should be addressed.

Open letter to alt. news sites everywhere: re Monsanto

Once upon a time, there was a thing called college activism that reached outside the borders of the campus and exerted enormous power.

It’s time again.

It’s long past the moment of knowing that Monsanto (and the other GMO/biotech giants) are doing great harm to human health, the land, and small farmers with their GMO crops and pesticides.

College groups need to form, and demand disinvestment from Monsanto.

This means students commanding their colleges and universities, in no uncertain terms, to get rid of every money-trace of Monsanto.

Get rid of, nullify, dump, refuse Monsanto research grants.

Cancel Monsanto-endowed chairs for professors.

Put an end to Monsanto student scholarships.

Explosive: yet another corrupt judge in the Maui vs. Monsanto case?Mar13

Judge Kurren, for whatever reasons, is no longer on the case. The sitting judge now is Susan Oki Mollway.

It’s all good now, right?

Wrong.

Hours before a scheduled March 10 hearing, which hopefully would have made progress toward a resolution of the voters of Maui’s position (ban GMOs) vs. Monsanto and Dow’s position (let us keep poisoning the people of Maui with our experimental pesticides and experimental GMOs)…boom. Judge Mollway postponed the hearing.

No progress. No resolution. More stalling, even after the voters of Maui had made their voices heard, last Election Day, with a ballot decision to put a temporary halt to all Monsanto/Dow GMO/pesticide toxic experiments on Maui.

Justice deferred once again.

So why did Judge Mollway shock everybody and cancel the March 10 hearing?

The Maui GMO ban, human experimentation, and war crimes

Maui County is home to ongoing Monsanto and Dow EXPERIMENTATION with new GMO seeds and new pesticides. GMOs and pesticides that are not for sale on the commercial market.

Research and development. Out in the open air.

Experimentation, which naturally affects the humans living there, and the land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The experiments are done here in Hawaii in case they make a really big mistake and need to "contain" it here in the middle of the Pacific.

25 Facts About the Pharmaceutical Industry, Vaccines and “Anti-Vaxers”

During the recent measles outbreak, the mainstream media blamed the epidemic solely on non vaccinated children, even though people who were vaccinated caught the disease and some vaccines have proven to be inefficient in the past. Without the slightest nuance, the mainstream media constantly portrays people reluctant to accept just any vaccine as “anti-vaxers”, irresponsible and misinformed people, relying on irrational fears and the one and only “fraudulent” Andrew Wakefield study linking autism to vaccines. (Watch Lina B. Moreco’s documentary Shots in the Dark, which features Dr. Wakefield and thankful parents of his young patients with autism.)

Water Wars Loom Over California As Farmers Lose Thousands of Jobs: “Wrestling Match Over Who Gets the Water”

Mac Slavo
SHTFplan.com

Some pretty serious water wars have been waged in California for over a century, but the battle is no longer between just big cities like L.A. and the growers who provide the nation’s food. The new wars are being orchestrated and promulgated by the corporate masters of Wall Street and Big Agra.

Attorney Ellen Brown, author of Web of Debt and advocate of banking reform, put together a lengthy article full of some pretty disturbing facts that prove water will become a disruptive commodity bigger enough to strip wealth, assets and rights in California and beyond. It seems that everyone will be fighting for the last drop:

In California’s epic drought, wars over water rights continue, while innovative alternatives for increasing the available water supply go untapped.

Dem senators warn Obamacare rule 'particularly harmful and disruptive'

Six Democratic senators and one independent have asked the Department of Health and Human Services to a delay a new rule that would likely force small businesses to pay more for employee health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. The senators warn that if the administration goes ahead with the change it would be "particularly harmful and disruptive" to small businesses.

Starting in 2016, the Obamacare change will require businesses that employ between 51-100 people to purchase insurance in what the government defines as the "small group market," rather than the market for large group plans. The senators warn that the change will inflate health care costs for those businesses.

World Health Organization: Monsanto’s Roundup “Probably” Causes Cancer

The WHO has issued a damning pronouncement about the world’s largest seed company:

Glyphosate, the primary ingredient in Monsanto’s toxic Round-up herbicide, is “probably carcinogenic.”

The announcement comes after a report was published by the International Agency for Research on Cancer in a British medical journal. The agency cited numerous studies in which occupational exposure to glyphosate was linked to “increased risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma”.

California Water Wars: Another Form of Asset Stripping?

In California’s epic drought, wars over water rights continue, while innovative alternatives for increasing the available water supply go untapped.

Wars over California’s limited water supply have been going on for at least a century. Water wars have been the subject of some vintage movies, including the 1958 hit The Big Country starring Gregory Peck, Clint Eastwood’s 1985 Pale Rider, 1995’s Waterworld with Kevin Costner, and the 2005 film Batman Begins. Most acclaimed was the 1975 Academy Award winner Chinatown with Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway, involving a plot between a corrupt Los Angeles politician and land speculators to fabricate the 1937 drought in order to force farmers to sell their land at low prices. The plot was rooted in historical fact, reflecting battles between Owens Valley farmers and Los Angeles urbanites over water rights.

WTC 7 & Nano-thermite Evidence Admitted in Danish High Court

The High Court session had it all — persuasive forensic evidence, courtroom drama, and the strong voice of a reputable scientist who expertly defended the basic laws of physics as well as the evidence of nano-thermite in the WTC dust. Though the verdict will not be known until April 9, it is clear to this observer that Dr. Harrit did an excellent job, not only solidifying his integrity and expertise in the eyes of the public, but also advancing the cause of the 9/11 Truth Movement in the process.

BOEING PATENTS 'STAR WARS'-STYLE FORCE FIELDS

Aircraft and military manufacturer Boeing has been granted a patent on a system that is designed to prevent explosion shockwaves from harming a target.? ?A new patent granted to aircraft, defense and security company Boeing is taking its cues from science fiction. Just like the glowing energy shields seen protecting troops, machines and even spacecraft in Star Wars and Star Trek, the design -- named "Method and system for shockwave attenuation via electromagnetic arc" -- uses energy to deflect potential damage.

Nitrogen discovered on Mars: Key ingredient of life provides further evidence that the red planet was once habitable

The evidence for Mars once being habitable is steadily growing, as samples collected by Nasa’s Mars Curiosity rover have revealed a key ingredient for life in Martian rock.

Scientists found traces of nitrogen compounds known as nitrates, a vital source of nutrients for living things on Earth.

The discovery is the latest feather in the cap for the theory that while Mars is barren and dry now, it was once habitable.

Recently Vaccinated Individuals Found to Spread Disease

Most likely you've seen this propaganda being circulated widely in the media. Some parents of children who are immunocompromised and therefore unable to receive the vaccines themselves, for instance, have targeted non-vaxing parents, calling them irresponsible and even killers.

It is sad to see so many lies and misinformation being spread, including those about herd immunity. Another important factor that isn't widely appreciated is that recently vaccinated individuals may actually spread disease.

This is why, in the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide for immunocompromised patients, it makes no mention about avoiding non-vaccinated individuals… but it does mention avoiding "contact with children who are recently vaccinated."

Monsanto chief admits ‘hubris’ is to blame for public fears over GM

The American company that produced the world’s first genetically modified crop has admitted for the first time that its “hubris” in promoting the technology contributed to a consumer backlash against genetically modified food.

Speaking to The Independent, the chief executive of Monsanto conceded that the company had failed to appreciate public concerns over GM technology when it was introduced nearly 20 years ago.

And he also said that the company had suffered by making “the wrong call” when it failed to rebrand itself in the aftermath of the botched launch of GM in Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note they never address the issue if whether GMO is safe or not.

The Privatization of Water: Nestlé Denies that Water is a Fundamental Human Right

The current Chairman and former CEO of Nestlé, the largest producer of food products in the world, believes that the answer to global water issues is privatization. This statement is on record from the wonderful company that has peddled junk food in the Amazon, has invested money to thwart the labeling of GMO-filled products, has a disturbing health and ethics record for its infant formula, and has deployed a cyber army to monitor Internet criticism and shape discussions in social media.

This is apparently the company we should trust to manage our water, despite the record of large bottling companies like Nestlé having a track record of creating shortages:

Meat demand sparks dramatic rise in antibiotic use – report

Demand for meat across the world has caused a sharp increase in farmers’ use of antibiotics, with China and the United States at the top of the list. The use of antimicrobial drugs is projected to rise drastically by 2030.

Pig farmers use four times as many drugs as cattle ranchers, with poultry farms falling somewhere in between, says a study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences last week. China, the world’s largest pork producer, is also the world’s biggest consumer of antibiotics in farming. The US comes in second, consuming 10 percent, while Brazil, India and Germany round off the top five.

Smart Meter Information Consumers Should Know

Catherine J. Frompovich
Activist Post

Over the course of a year that my electric power company in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been installing AMI Smart Meters on homes in my area, I have been able to keep one off my house by placing a “No Permission Granted to Install Smart Meter” sign on the meter along with a padlock on the meter latch. Early in February of 2015, I received what I perceived as a threatening letter to my health, safety, and well-being, that if I don’t give PECO permission to install a Smart Meter, my electric power will be turned off, and not because I’ve not paid my bill! No utility bill wherever my late husband or I have lived ever was missed or even made as a late payment! So, I’ve decided to tell my story of what’s been going on in the USA about Smart Meters...

17 Scientists Speak Out: Monsanto’s Roundup is Causing Cancer

Are the full body protective suits not enough of a tip off that pesticides are toxic? If not, consider this: Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide – the most widely used and best-selling herbicide in the U.S. and one of the world’s most popular weed-killers – has been labeled a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

The decision was made by IARC, the France-based cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, which considered the status of five insect and weed killers including glyphosate, which is used globally in industrial farming.

Mainstream media falls for California wine arsenic HOAX story: wine industry victimized by scientifically illiterate reporting

While the media headlines shown above may sound convincing, the truth is that the accusations are part of an outlandish hoax. The lawsuit's claims are blatantly false, and the California wine industry is being unfairly victimized by what I see as a highly irresponsible attempt to extort money from wine makers through a junk science lawsuit that suffers from fatal errors I will explain here.

The group that put out the original press release, it seems, is trying to drum up lab testing business from other wine and beer manufacturers. The mainstream media played right into the hoax, providing them with enormous free publicity even as they conducted what I have to call really BAD science.

Dissolving Illusions About the Measles Vaccine

With the elevation of vaccination to a sacred cow status, it is no wonder that ever since about 50 visitors to Disneyland in California were diagnosed with measles earlier this year, the whole country has been subjected to a relentless barrage of mainstream media articles blaming unvaccinated children for a minor measles outbreak that, by March 16, 2015, consisted of a grand total of 176 cases.2 in a population of 320 million people.

The way public health officials and the media have been promoting irrational fear about measles and using it to lobby for laws eliminating all non-medical vaccine exemptions or even criminally prosecuting and jailing unvaccinated people, it sometimes feels like we are living in a dystopian science fiction novel.

I have never seen such a well-coordinated disinformation campaign to vilify virtually anyone who would question the effectiveness and safety of complying with the CDC's ever-expanding vaccination schedule.3

Costa Rica powered with 100% renewable energy for 75 straight days

The ICE says the country's zero-emission milestone was enabled thanks to heavy rainfalls at four hydroelectric power facilities in the first quarter of 2015. These downpours have meant that, for the months of January, February and so far March, there has been no need to burn fossil fuels to generate electricity.

Instead, Costa Rica has been powered primarily by hydro power - both pumped storage and run-of-the-river plants - and a mixture of geothermal, wind, biomass and solar energy.

It’s important to remember that Costa Rica is a small nation. It has a total area of about 51,000 square kilometres, which is about half the size of the US state of Kentucky, and it has a population of only 4.8 million people. Furthermore, its primary industries are tourism and agriculture, rather than heavy, more energy-intensive industries such as mining or manufacturing.
