Giraffes facing ‘silent extinction’: IUCN "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The iconic giraffe is rapidly heading towards extinction, according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN). In the past 30 years, giraffe numbers have plummeted by 40 percent from around 157,000 individuals in 1985 to 97,500 in 2015, IUCN announced in a statement last week. This has brought the charismatic species a few steps closer to extinction. Given their dramatic decline, the giraffe’s IUCN Red List status has jumped two places from ‘Least Concern’ to ‘Vulnerable to extinction’. “Whilst giraffes are commonly seen on safari, in the media and in zoos, people – including conservationists – are unaware that these majestic animals are undergoing a silent extinction,” Julian Fennessy, co-chair of the IUCN SSC Giraffe and Okapi Specialist Group, said in the statement. “With a decline of almost 40% in the last three decades alone, the world's tallest animal is under severe pressure in some of its core ranges across East, Central and West Africa.” [caption id="attachment_189376" align="aligncenter" width="768"] Giraffe numbers have declined by 40% in the last 30 years. Photo by Udayan Dasgupta.[/caption] Some recent studies have suggested that there may be up to four distinct species of giraffes, which do not mate in the wild. But the IUCN currently recognizes a single species of giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis), split into nine recognized subspecies based on their coat markings and geographical distribution. Some giraffe subspecies are at greater risk of extinction than others, researchers say. The West African giraffe (Giraffa c. peralta), for example, is only found in an…

Transporting Sounds from Nepal’s Mountain Monasteries "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Every place has its sound character, and in Upper Mustang in northern Nepal, one of the most cacophonous forces is the wind.  Rippling prayer flags on the Himalayan mountain passes, and the air current’s sweep through the valley below, are interspersed on the field recordings made by Soundwalk Collective during their visits to the region earlier this year. In Sacred Spaces: Himalayan Wind at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan, visitors are immersed in a sound environment orchestrated from these recordings.

When the Rubin Museum opened their newly expanded Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room last fall, the two gallery spaces alongside were dedicated to a Sacred Spaces program to explore the idea of devotion and its settings. The first two installations were very visual, with a panoramic photograph of mountains in Mustang by Jaroslav Poncar, and a diptych video by Deidi von Schaewen, showing a colossal statue in Shravanabelagola, India, being drenched in orange turmeric powder and white milk.

AUM - the glowing sound of - the ancient electric sky "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

We were once occupants of a very different world rich in flora and fauna, fed by the all-year light spectrum inside the glowing plasma sheath of a brown-dwarf star i.e. proto-Saturn.

The sun (electrically) captured proto-Saturn, effectively turning off its plasma sheath, allowing the planets in its system (Earth, Mars and Venus) to fall out of its orbit. Not before forming spectacular standing columns of glowing plasma that boiled down between Earth and Mars, forming grand canyons and totally symmetrical 'meteor collision' sites with edge craters and perfectly central peaks within their electric-machined inverse domes. This before Dragon Venus broke off and raced in towards its current position nearer the sun, its new adoptive star.

Think of the earliest human races who might have experienced such a horrific star-parent transition, the People of the Indian Ocean nations. Is THE ELECTRIC SOUND OF A PLASMA-TRANSITIONING SKY that early man might have witnessed and worshipped? As the plasma column from Mars poured down its glowing destruction upon Earth, is what The Apocalypse might have sounded like to early man?




Is AUM the remnant-sound of Electric Destruction and the reason why blaring Brass War Horns were so prevalent in ancient times of territorial battle?

Shikonin could be a lead compound in the treatment of rotaviral secretory diarrhoea. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Front Pharmacol. 2016 ;7:270. Epub 2016 Aug 23. PMID: 27601995 Abstract Title:  Shikonin Inhibits Intestinal Calcium-Activated Chloride Channels and Prevents Rotaviral Diarrhea. Abstract:  Secretory diarrhea remains a global health burden and causes major mortality in children. There have been some focuses on antidiarrheal therapies that may reduce fluid losses and intestinal motility in diarrheal diseases. In the present study, we identified shikonin as an inhibitor of TMEM16A chloride channel activity using cell-based fluorescent-quenching assay. The IC50 value of shikonin was 6.5μM. Short-circuit current measurements demonstrated that shikonin inhibited Eact-induced Cl(-) current in a dose-dependent manner, with IC50 value of 1.5 μM. Short-circuit current measurement showed that shikonin exhibited inhibitory effect against CCh-induced Cl(-) currents in mouse colonic epithelia but did not affect cytoplasmic Ca(2+) concentration as well as the other major enterocyte chloride channel conductance regulator. Characterization study found that shikonin inhibited basolateral K(+) channel activity without affecting Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase activities. In vivo studies revealed thatshikonin significantly delayed intestinal motility in mice and reduced stool water content in a neonatal mice model of rotaviral diarrhea without affecting the viral infection process in vivo. Taken together, the results suggested that shikonin inhibited enterocyte calcium-activated chloride channels, the inhibitory effect was partially through inhbition of basolateral K(+) channel activity, and shikonin could be a lead compound in the treatment of rotaviral secretory diarrhea.

Dr. Mercola: EPA Urged to Ban Brain Toxin "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

An Update On Our Fundraiser

Yesterday, was a very big day for our efforts. We very quickly reached 200 donors which triggered a challenge grant of $1,000. Then in the mail we received a donation of $3,000 from a small foundation which has faithfully supported our efforts for several years. This along with several other individual donations brought our totals to $66,542 from 214 donors.

The 200th Donor

The 200th donor – Karen Lyke from Whitehouse, Ohio – wins a free copy of the book The Case Against Fluoride. I spoke to Karen on the phone yesterday afternoon and she said that she is going to give this book to her dentist. I asked why she supports this cause and she said, “The health of our people is the foundation of our survival.”

We are making substantial strides towards our goal of $150,000 by midnight, Dec 31 but we are still a long way from our goal of 1,000 donors. Remember the NUMBER of donors is CRUCIAL to us. Foundations know it is easy to like a Facebook page, but in their eyes a member is someone who puts money (even a little) into the cause in which they believe.

Thanks to an ongoing challenge from one of our super angels all pledges are being doubled until we reach $68,000.

People are freaking out over this ‘monstrosity’ that washed up in New Zealand "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Source: ScienceAlert

New Zealand locals reportedly flocked to Muriwai Beach yesterday, to catch a glimpse of the so-called Muriwai Monster – a sprawling mass that looks exactly like something you’d drag up from the depths of the ocean.

With its thick black tendrils writhing in the Sun, the bizarre object looks a lot like the massive chunk of seabed that was lifted 2 metres above the ground by an earthquake in New Zealand last month, but this time, the explanation is a whole lot less violent.

The photos were taken by local woman, Melissa Doubleday, who posted them on Facebook for identification.

She spotted the object on Muriwai Beach, located on the west cost of New Zealand’s North Island, and it was reportedly still moving at the time.

“I actually thought it was a washed up whale as I approached it, so weird,” Doubleday told Jackson Thomas at Stuff. “It looks like worms with shells I’ve never seen before with these funny creatures that just [came] out.

Muriwai resident Rani Timoti told Stuff that the object looked distinctly ‘alive’.

“It’s got a putrid smell when you’re downwind,” she said, “and when you look closely, it looks like wiggling worms.”

A Most Simple Explanation Of Fraud "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Short List


By Anna Von Reitz

There is just so much about it.

A name is NOT the “same as” the man or the thing it labels.

Think about it. You “accept” the idea that your name is yours, like a bicycle or a chest of drawers— but is it?

What if your name is John Robert Brown. Is it possible and even likely that there are numerous John Robert Browns in the world?

What if your name is The United States of America? It is just a name, folks. Like John Robert Brown.

“The United States of America” was the name of an association of states a long time ago. It was created by a charter called The Articles of Confederation. A charter is a contractual agreement.

This particular contract was destroyed when the Southern states left the Union created by that agreement. Why?

Because a contract has to be consensual and it cannot be maintained by force.

This is one of the most fundamental of all laws— The Law of Free Will.

The Union States attempted to force the Southern states to return by military victory, but the original Southern states never agreed, never succumbed.

There is no peace treaty in existence ending the American Civil War.

I have looked long and hard and so have many, many others. All of you are welcome to look for yourselves.

The North claimed victory. “Peace” was declared— by President Johnson, at least for the land jurisdiction. But there is no Peace Treaty. Not then. Not now. There is no return on record of the original states ever mending the breach that happened in 1860.

Instead, the bankruptcy trustees in charge of the Union states made up new “states” and pretended that all was well. They created “states of states” corporations named after the original states and drummed up a new corporate constitution and except for the insiders nobody was the...

Shikonin enhances the chemotherapeutic sensitivity of gastric cancer cells to 5-fluorouracil and oxaliplatin. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2016 Dec 1 ;6:38267. Epub 2016 Dec 1. PMID: 27905569 Abstract Title:  Shikonin induces mitochondria-mediated apoptosis and enhances chemotherapeutic sensitivity of gastric cancer through reactive oxygen species. Abstract:  The prognosis of gastric cancer remains poor due to clinical drug resistance. Novel drugs are urgently needed. Shikonin (SHK), a natural naphthoquinone, has been reported to trigger cell death and overcome drug resistance in anti-tumour therapy. In this study, we investigated the effectiveness and molecular mechanisms of SHK in treatment with gastric cancer. In vitro, SHK suppresses proliferation and triggers cell death of gastric cancer cells but leads minor damage to gastric epithelial cells. SHK induces the generation of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), depolarizes the mitochondrial membrane potential (MMP) and ultimately triggers mitochondria-mediated apoptosis. We confirmed that SHK induces apoptosis of gastric cancer cells not only in a caspase-dependent manner which releases Cytochrome C and triggers the caspase cascade, but also in a caspase-independent manner which mediates the nuclear translocation of apoptosis-inducing factor and Endonuclease G. Furthermore, we demonstrated that SHK enhanced the chemotherapeutic sensitivity of 5-fluorouracil and oxaliplatin in vitro and in vivo. Taken together, our data show that SHK may be a novel therapeutic agent in the clinical treatment of gastric cancer.

Oh By the Way… Trump Won Wisconsin AGAIN in Recount: “Net 162 Votes” More "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

trump-wall

This article was written by Tyler Durden and originally published at Zero Hedge.

Editor’s Comment: So, that plan didn’t work. But are they done trying to stop the Trump presidency? Of course not. There is currently an effort underway to indoctrinate electors from the electoral college an intelligence briefing claiming that Russia interfered with the elections in order to install Trump… thereafter, they are hoping to stop the electoral college rubber stamp and have Congress select someone else altogether.

On the off chance that any of this happens, the country would rightfully revolt and things would devolve into chaos. The system is really playing with fire in order to scare the population straight, and sooth them back into compliance and easy management. They know the herd is spooked, and the word is going around. Can this chaos be contained? Or can they benefit from circulating it into the body politic?

Trump’s Wisconsin Victory Confirmed – Gained Net 162 Votes In Statewide Recount

by Tyler Durden

It’s official… again! Donald Trump remains the winner of Wisconsin following the statewide recount demanded by Jill Stein and paid for by sad snowflakes. After counting over 3 million ballots (at a cost of $3.5 million), Trump gained a net 162 votes…

As AP reports,

Republican Donald Trump’s victory in Wisconsin has been reaffirmed following a presidential recount that showed him defeating Democrat Hillary Clinton by more than 22,000 votes.

Trump picked up a net 162 votes as a result of the recount that the Wisconsin Elections Commission certified Monday. Green Party candidate Jill Stein requested and paid for the recount that began Dec. 1.

But after recounting nearly 3 million ballots, little changed. The final results changed by fewer than 1,800 votes.

Stein has also tried to get statewide recounts in Michigan and Pennsylvania, but courts have stopped them. The federal deadline to certify the vote is Tuesday.

Lane’s Birth Story "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Abbie tells us about the birth of her son, Lane.

I figured I needed to write this all down before I forget the good detailed bits about Lane’s birth. There was so much beauty in it. I have fallen in love with being a mother and even more so with the process of becoming one. People always talk about the love you have for you children. A love no one can understand until they feel it – until they hold that precious little one in their arms and kiss those sweet cheeks. Now I get it. My heart swells with happiness and pride looking at Lane. I DID THAT. I brought my sweet boy into this world after a whole lot of work. Here’s how it happened.

I had an awesome and easy pregnancy up until 29 weeks. When I say easy, I mean it was so easy I didn’t even know I was pregnant until 14 weeks. Funny enough, I was deployed when I found out. I was six weeks into my first deployment and I found out I’m 14 weeks pregnant with my first baby. Needless to say, I was sent home. I had monthly appointments with my OB after that. My monthly OB appointment came up; I was 29 weeks at this point. Everything had been perfect thus far, but this appointment went a little differently than the ones prior. We found out that I was in preterm labor and dilated to a 1 – not normal for a first-time mom to be dilated at all.

I was placed on bed rest at home for a week with a follow-up appointment. At that next appointment we found not only was I still having contractions (painless contractions, mind you) and that I was dilated, but now my cervix was shortening. I was admitted that day. I had a constant IV and I received steroid shots for baby’s lungs. It was a scary eight days being there. I had never felt so helpless. Keeping a calm spirit was all I could focus on since I felt so helpless. At 31 weeks I was sent home, still on bed rest orders, but I was stable. I had weekly appointments at this point. But at 33 weeks, I was admitted again! My cervix started shortening even more. I was now over 60% effaced and dilated to a 1. After four days of being in the hospital, the doctor told me there was nothing more they could give me medically. I was sent home to be on continued bed rest.

GUESS WHAT. This kid stayed put. He listened. He and I had a few talks about why he wasn’t allowed to meet us yet. I guess it got through! At 35w 5d I had an OB appointment, where I found out that I was completely effaced and 2 cm dilated. The doctor told us there was no way I’d make it through next week; he even said I wouldn’t make it through the weekend (it was a Friday). We made a follow-up appointment for 10 days later, just in case. Well, 10 days came and went. Our normal OB was out, but the doctor this time said the exact same thing. I was 100% effaced...

5 Books to Read About Artists Under Nazism "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I’ve long been interested in how people, particularly those in the arts (my people!), function under tyranny. How much do we compromise, and how much do we fight back? Sure, we all like to imagine ourselves acting courageously in a perilous situation, but would we really? What if our livelihoods were at stake — or our lives?

Here’s a selection of five books that examine the many ways artists responded to the Nazi regime. Just a little something to keep you occupied on your sleepless nights in the coming weeks, before an unpredictable demagogue takes our nation’s highest office.

Cover of Beth Irwin Lewis, George Grosz: Art and Politics in the Weimar Republic

We tend to think of artistic repression in Germany as starting with Hitler, but the problems were already there during the Weimar Republic. The short-lived democracy was hobbled in its early years by arch-conservatives in positions of power who protected and encouraged the violent reactionaries who would eventually take over the country.

Lewis details the evolution of George Grosz’s art in the environment that fueled it. Grosz used his drawings and prints as a weapon, skewering everyone and everything around him, from the plutocrats driving the c...

According to Cybersecurity Ventures’ Cybersecurity Market Report, worldwide spending on cybersecurity is predicted to top $1 trillion for the five-year period from 2017 to 2021. However, in the drive to become more cyber resilient in 2017, organizations are extending risk management that is traditionally based on parametric measures (i.e., data loss prevention and firewalls) towards information stewardship – the proper identification, categorization and deletion of their own content, regardless of where it is saved.

Green Inspiration In Illustration "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

picsart_11-30-08.47.04.png

I’ve been obsessing about house plants for the last few months or so. It started with an article I read about how having plants in your work space can increase productivity. I read that a long time ago. Since I read that article, I had been trying to bring in plants. It didn’t work out to well, until recently.

I started my collection with just the elephant ears and bamboo in one water filled vase . They surprisingly thrived. And so did the mosquitoes that were nesting in my beautiful mini water garden. Gross. Allan wanted me to get rid of the plants. I compromised. I moved the bamboo into an old glass 7UP bottle. The narrow bottle neck took care of the mosquito problem while keeping the bamboo in water. I moved the elephant ears in to a Jack Daniel’s Coffee tin with dirt I snagged from a plant outside.

Since then, I’ve found more containers to fill with dirt and plants from our yard. I even bought a little plant from Home Depot. That was a disappointment though. It brought aphids with it. Thankfully I caught it before it turned into a furry white epidemic spreading to my precious boonie plants. Even after saving it from the aphids the poor little guy shriveled in to a sad pile. I probably should’ve changed out the soil and gave it some of the love filled local dirt.

Controversial Versions of “The Star Spangled Banner”: Igor Stravinsky, Jimi Hendrix, José Feliciano & John Philip Sousa "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

star-spangled-banner

Debates over whether or not we should destroy or alter U.S. icons seem to turn on a critical question: are national symbols quasi-religious totems of some transcendent sacred order? The kind of imperial project likely to end up a collection of crumbling monuments with every other empire of the past? Or are they living emblems of a secular republic whose primary embodiment is its people? A country, like its people, that must reconstitute itself with each generation in order to survive?

Either way, the nation’s symbols have always withstood creative destruction, détournement, and recontextualization. Subjecting national iconography to the interventions of artists and activists restores a sense of proportion, showing us that our government and its symbols belong to the people, rather than the other way around. The idea is a powerful one. So much so that its expression never fails to excite controversy. And few expressions have provoked more ire than performances of (or responses to) the national anthem that deviate from the staid traditional arrangement.

Local Community Power And The 'GMO' "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

US Court of Appeals: States and counties can ban GMO crops despite federal laws

Image: US Court of Appeals: States and counties can ban GMO crops despite federal laws

(NaturalNews) The entire organic community of the United States just won a massive victory that many may not yet even realize. Even though the DARK Act was passed by Obama and some Senate goons to prohibit labeling of GMOs nationwide, the US Court of Appeals just passed a law that enables states and counties to completely ban genetically engineered crops from ever being planted in the first place. Think about that for a minute. You see, back in the year 2000, Monsanto undermined all US organic and conventional farming by claiming that manipulating genomic material of plants did not introduce dangerous bacteria or even plant “pests” into the equation, but their noxious “Frankenfoods” prove otherwise. So biotechnology giants figured a way to not have their cancer-causing, Alzheimer’s-causing, pesticide-laden plants classified as a risk to the environment or humans. But now, none of that really matters anymore.

Thanks to the Ninth Circuit US Court of Appeals and their recent interpretation of the Plant Protection Act, all U.S. states, counties, and local communities can actually ban (or regulate) the planting of any and all commercially-grown genetically engineered crops, no matter what the feds or Monsanto claims about GMO.

Neither the Plant Protection Act nor the DARK Act can stop states and counties from banning the planting of GMO crops

Our Friendsmas Dinner & Cookie Exchange "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This past Sunday, we hosted a bunch of our friends for a "Friendsmas" dinner & cookie exchange. It's basically the same idea as Friendsgiving, except in December...which is even better because you get all the same good food plus Christmas cookies! We made a ham, deviled eggs, crescent rolls, and brussel sprouts, plus chocolate crinkles, candy cane cookies, and eggnog cookies. I partnered with Kendall-Jackson, who provided delicious wine, and our friends each brought a side dish and their favorite holiday cookie. I took a few photos before everyone arrived, and believe it or not this is the dessert spread before I added our guests' contributions. We still have a ton left, so I've been super tempted to eat cookies for breakfast this week!

In addition to a plethora of cookies, we had this gorgeous dulce de leche cake that my sister-in-law made.

For decor, I got a vintage-style letter board from Lowell & Co, then added some bottle brush trees and ornaments.

I also made some mini trees out of wine corks and paper triangles, and used them to label the different options. If you want to add some competition to your cookie exchange/bake-off, it would be fun to number the cookies, then have people vote on their favorites!

„Funny Crosses“ Madrid experimentiert mit farbigen Zebrastreifen vor Schulen "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Verkehrszeichen und Straßenmarkierungen haben die Aufgabe den Verkehrsfluss zu regulieren und möglichst gut von allen Verkehrsteilnehmern lesbar zu sein. So weit, so sinnvoll. Warum Verkehrszeichen allerdings nicht auch Raum für kreative Gestaltung bieten sollten, ist schon schwerer nachvollziehbar. Bislang haben nur sehr wenige Städte erkannt, dass sich durch die künstlerische Gestaltungen von Verkehrszeichen und Straßenmarkierungen auch ein Mehrwert ergeben kann. Eine Stadt, die erfolgreich mit dem Thema experimentiert, ist Madrid. In der spanischen Stadt wurden 2015 gleich eine ganze Reihe von Zebrastreifen künstlerisch gestaltet. Eingeladen wurde hierfür der bulgarische Künstler Christo Guelov. In einer Reihe von küsntlerischen Interventionen hat er die Leerräume von klassischen Zebrastreifen genutzt und mit geometrischen Farbmustern gefüllt. „FUNNYCROSS uses zebra crossings to intervene in the urban landscape. The metaphor “A bridge between two shores” is the starting point of this artistic intervention. Using simple geometrical designs and saturated colours reinforces the specific signaling and creates a touch of colour in our urban landscape. This action, parallel to the art concept, fights toward improving driver and pedestrian focus, by enhancing respect for zebra crossing using its visual impact.“ Verortet sind die farbigen „Funny Crosses“, wie der Künstler die Interventionsreihe betitelt hat, vor drei unterschiedlichen Schulen in Madrid.

EPA Urged to Ban Brain Toxin by Dr. Mercola "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Fluoride Action Network (FAN) is among a coalition of environmental, medical and health groups urging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban the addition of fluoride to public drinking water supplies.

The EPA has been served with a petition that includes more than 2,500 pages of scientific documentation detailing the risks of water fluoridation to human health.

In particular, the petition notes, “the amount of fluoride now regularly consumed by millions of Americans in fluoridated areas exceeds the doses repeatedly linked to IQ loss and other neurotoxic effects.”

The EPA is authorized, under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) to prohibit the use of a chemical that poses an unreasonable risk to the general public or particularly vulnerable populations.

EPA’s Own Risk Assessment Shows Water Fluoridation Poses an Unreasonable Health Risk

The petition urges the EPA to exert their authority to prohibit fluoridation additives in drinking water, noting that their own Guidelines for Neurotoxicity Risk Assessment shows:1

  • Neurotoxicity is a hazard of fluoride exposure
  • The reference dose that would reasonably protect against neurotoxicity is “incompatible with the doses now ingested by millions of Americans in fluoridated areas”

“In fact,” the petition states, “the amount of fluoride now regularly consumed by many people in fluoridated areas exceeds the doses repeatedly linked to IQ loss and other neurotoxic effects; with certain subpopulations standing at elevated risk of harm, including infants, young children, elderly populations and those with dietary deficiencies, renal impairment and/or genetic predispositions.”2

As for fluoride’s effects on the brain, in 2014 Lancet Neurology released a study, authored by a Harvard doctor, among others, that classified fluoride as a developmental neurotoxin.3 It wasn’t the first time.......

Three Kid-Friendly Brussels Sprouts Recipes "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Brussels sprouts are an excellent source of protein, iron, and potassium. In addition, they contain immune-boosting and bioprotective ingredients including Vitamin C (which prevents cellular damage), fiber (for lowering risk of heart disease and stroke and maintaining the digestive system), folate (which reduces your risk of heart disease), and antioxidants. Unfortunately though, Brussels sprouts aren’t the most appealing or glamorous vegetable, probably because when they are overcooked they become a slimy, bitter mess.

I didn’t enjoy Brussels sprouts until college and even then only after coming across a restaurant that served them in a rich bacon butter. Studies show that it’s not uncommon for certain complex flavors to slowly be acquired over time. It may take up to eight times tasting a food or drink before you begin to like it. (Think about kids’ reactions when they first encounter coffee, beer, or sushi and you’ve got a pretty good idea about this phenomenon.) But kids who are exposed to and try a wide variety of vegetables on their plates (even if they don’t always finish them!) have better lifetime eating habits, as they will acquire those difficult/unusual tastes earlier.

We regularly cook Brussels sprouts at our house. My kids don’t always clean their plates, but the following recipes are pretty great at getting them to eat a few bites of this highly nutritious veggie. As an added bonus, two of these dishes will take you less than 15 minutes to make from start to finish.

BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH BACON AND RAISINS

Remember what I said about the bacon trick? This dish makes use of a little bit of bacon and a handful of raisins to add a rich, complex. Kids who love a little sweetness will appreciate the flavor balancing that happens in this hearty side dish. Goes great with a steak.

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 2 slices bacon

  • ¼ cup golden raisins
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • ½ cup chicken broth

Facebook statistics show that only 5-10% of David Icke’s 700k+ Facebook followers actually see his posts and so the number of followers falls, and ‘likes’ are regularly and systematically deleted in blocks, while interest in his information explodes worldwide. Clearly something doesn’t add up here and algorithms and blocking processes are at work. Twitter has become next to useless, too. Over the last 12 months David has had 17.7 million YouTube video views (average 48,000 per day), but of that only 38,000 views in the annual total came from links on Twitter (average 104 per day). You would get more shouting in the street. We should be viewing the mainstream social media in the same way that we do mainstream television, radio and newspapers. They have no interest whatsoever in providing a fair platform for information because they are owned by the very Elite forces of suppression and control that want to silence all dissent and alternative views which challenge the agenda of human enslavement.

“One of the projects I was assigned to involved a drug that was targeted at women. The graphics and general style of the website made it clear that the client wanted to specifically target teenage girls,” Bill Sourour writes for freeCodeCamp. “One of the features of this website was a quiz that asked girls a series of questions and recommended a type of drug based on their answers. Remember, this website was posing as a general information site. It was not clearly an advertisement for any particular drug.”

Drohnen gewaltfrei vom Himmel holen mit der DroneGun "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Am Himmel fliegen immer mehr Drohnen – nicht nur aus Spaß und Hobby, sondern auch für Forschung, privater und staatlicher Überwachung und vor allem im Sinne der vermeintlichen Sicherheit. Vor einigen Wochen haben wir schon einmal über einen DIY Raspberry Pi WiFi-Störer geschrieben, mit dem sich Drohnen vom Himmel holen lassen. Die Selbstbau-Variante, die man mit ein bisschen technischem Geschick für ein paar Euro selber bauen kann, stört das WiFi-Signal der Steuerung und zwingt die Drohnen so zum Landen. Bilder: Drone Shield (Mit freundlicher Genehmigung) Eine US-amerikanische Firma hat nun eine seriell gefertigte DroneGun auf den Markt gebracht. Mit der DroneGun, die zwar aussieht wie ein Gewehr, aber nur mit Funksignalen arbeitet, lassen sich Drohnen gewaltfrei vom Himmel holen. Durch eine Richtantenne wird das GPS Signal der Drohne gestört, und zwingt diese so zum Landen. Die meisten Drohnen kehren bei der Störung des GPS-Signal automatisch zum Ausgangspunkt zurück. Die Drohnen-Kanone wird zwar bereits seriell gefertigt und verkauft, ist allerdings nicht zugelassen, weder für den freien Gebrauch in den USA, noch in Deutschland. Die Firma Drone Schield hat sich auf die Abwehr von Drohnen spezialisiert und wird damit sicherlich auf ziemlich viel Interesse stoßen.

Goldman Sachs takes over US financial policy as Trump names its president to head National Economic Council "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President-elect Donald Trump on Monday said he would appoint Gary Cohn, a longtime Goldman Sachs executive, to lead the powerful National Economic Council, giving the Wall Street insider a key job in developing the new administration’s economic policy. The position, which does not require Senate confirmation, can be as influential as the treasury secretary or other Cabinet posts, and Trump said in a statement that Cohn would be his “top economic adviser.” “Gary Cohn is going to put his talents as a highly successful businessman to work for the American people,” Trump said in the statement. “He will help craft economic policies that will grow wages for our workers, stop the exodus of jobs overseas and create many great new opportunities for Americans who have been struggling.” Read more: Goldman Sachs takes over US financial policy as Trump names its president to head National Economic Council

Thousands of ISIS terrorists given free passage across US 'coalition' land to retake Syrian city of Palmyra "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘Islamic State militants used a break in the US-led coalition’s advance against them to launch offensive in Palmyra, while counting on the fact that Russia will not conduct airstrikes on residential areas, the Russian Defense Ministry said. The setback shows that terrorists should not be given the opportunity to regroup. “Seizing on the suspension of active military action near Al-Raqqah till spring by the US and international coalition, Islamic State devoted considerable forces to storm Palmyra,” the ministry spokesman Major-General Igor Konashenkov said on Monday. Konashenkov said that Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists knew that the Russian Air Force would not conduct airstrikes in Palmyra’s residential areas, and “used that to reinforce their attacks.”’ Read more:Thousands of ISIS terrorists given free passage across US ‘coalition’ land to retake Syrian city of Palmyra

ISIS used as tool by Saudis, US & Turkey when it suits their interests – US senator "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘Speaking to RT on the advance of ISIS militants from Mosul toward Palmyra, Virginia Senator Richard Black (R) expressed doubt that the US-led coalition could have overlooked such a regrouping, pointing to possible interests of the US and regional players. Given that the territory between areas occupied by Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Palmyra is a “very barren” rocky desert, “it is unconceivable that the American-led collation could not have seen this massive army moving towards Palmyra,” Senator Black told RT. “I was surprised that ISIS was able to attack Palmyra. It’s important to recognize that the distance from ISIS-held territory [to] Palmyra is approximately 100 miles,” added the senator, who has repeatedly voiced support for Syrian President Bashar Assad in battling the jihadists.’ Read more: ISIS used as tool by Saudis, US & Turkey when it suits their interests – US senator

Israel's Defense Minister Outlines Plan to Divide Syria and Iraq along Sectarian Lines - the plan all along "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘Liberman goes on to draw three conclusions as the solutions for ending the crisis in the Middle East. The second conclusion is clearly a call to attack the sovereignty of the independent countries. Liberman says, “many of the countries in the Middle East were established artificially, as a result of the Sykes-Picot Agreement and based on colonial considerations that did not take into account the pattern of inhabitance and the deep sectarian rifts within the respective societies. Thus, to genuinely solve the region’s problems, borders will have to be altered, specifically in countries like Syria and Iraq. Boundaries need to be redrawn between Sunnis, Shia and other communities to diminish sectarian strife and to enable the emergence of states that will enjoy internal legitimacy. It is a mistake to think that these states can survive in their current borders.’ Read more: Israel’s Defense Minister Outlines Plan to Divide Syria and Iraq along Sectarian Lines – the plan all along

Electoral College To Determine If 'Trump Is Fit To Serve As President' On Fake News Of Russia Hacks "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘In a development with the shocking potential to upend the U.S. presidential election, ten Electoral College electors have requested further insight into President-Elect Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia to determine “whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.” Led by Christine Pelosi, daughter of Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi, the group of ten electors penned an open letter to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, stating: Allegations that Donald Trump was receiving assistance from a hostile foreign power to win the election began months before Election Day. When presented with information that the Russian government was interfering in the election through the course of the campaign, both in private briefings and public assessment, Donald Trump rejected it, refused to condemn it, and continued to accept their help. Donald Trump even made a direct plea to the Russian government to interfere further in the election in a press conference on July 27, saying, ‘Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.’’ Read more: Electoral College To Determine If ‘Trump Is Fit To Serve As President’ On Fake News Of Russia Hacks

Vivid dreaming - intense emotional material - phone numbers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"



a colleague at work intimated to me that (they were tired because) they'd been having really intense dreams lately. I concurred with this, "Me too," I said. Just the last few days? Yes. Maybe it's an Electric Universe thing, where intensified electromagnetic forces drive our heightened consciousness, or something. Maybe the Earth is in for a pole shift. Maybe it's the pixies, pickling our pineals...

Anyway, yes emotionally intense dream content, vivid, lifelike, electrically charged, actually based in the Dreaming Room in some occassions, have been the order of the last few nights. Also, phone numbers, or at least what I took to be phone numbers. Doing some directory research on these, however, just highlights how dominant these number combinations are on the international phone lists of Europe and the Rest of the World such that (other than random number generation for the sake of my dreaming mind's hilarious mischief) I have no idea what numerical relevance this can have, if anything.

‘British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has turned down former-Prime Minister Tony Blair’s bid for extra resources as his total cost to the taxpayer hits almost £3 million a year, it has been reported. Blair recently requested further access to additional equipment and staff, the Sun reports. He presented the demands to Johnson, who has to sign off all ex-premiers’ state spending as part of his Cabinet job, during a face-to-face Whitehall meeting in October. Blair asked for more armored cars and escort vehicles, as well as drivers to operate them, for his work in the Middle East. He also asked for diplomatic number plates to be installed on the vehicles. Officials estimated the extra resources to be worth an additional £100,000 (US$125,000) a year. The request comes despite Blair no longer having any official role in the Middle East, after giving up the job of special envoy to the quartet – the UN, US, EU and Russia – in May last year.’ Read more: Boris Johnson rejects Tony Blair’s request for increase on £3 million taxpayer funding

Birmingham : ‘Catastrophic Cuts’ warns Chief Executive "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A few weeks ago I started to write something about my sense of a  youth sector, which seems to inhabit parallel universes, one in which smug ‘selfies’ with Tory Ministers circulate, whilst in the other the Tories’ assault on youth work not of its liking continues unabated.  As I collect material on this phenomenon the task is getting out of hand. Perhaps, for what it’s worth, it will see the light of day in the New Year. In the meantime I’ll post some of the ‘cuttings’ informing my ruminations.

Birmingham council chief: years of cuts could have catastrophic consequences

brummies

Mark Rogers, who runs the biggest council in England, said the effects of six years of austerity meant Birmingham’s youth service had “all but gone”, homelessness prevention services had been cut by so much that rough sleeping had quadrupled, and far fewer elderly people were eligible for care at home.

The council has almost halved its headcount since 2008, from around 24,000 to 12,500, and says staff numbers could be as low as 8,000 by 2020. By that point the council will have made £800m worth of cuts since the era of austerity began in 2010, and expects to have lost 50% of its grant from central government.

Rogers also highlighted cuts to council youth services. “The youth service has all but gone. In 2010 it would have been seen as one of the exemplar programmes in the country, we would have had dozens of youth services. Now we hav...

Medieval Doodler Draws a “Rockstar Lady” in a Manuscript of Boethius’ The Consolation of Philosophy (Circa 1500) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Sloane 554 f 53

By the early 6th century, the Western Roman Empire had effectively come to an end after the deposition of the final emperor and the installation of Germanic kings. Under the second such ruler, Theodoric the Great, emerged one of the most influential works of literature of the European Middle Ages: The Consolation of Philosophy. Its author, senator and philosopher Boethius, wrote the text while imprisoned and awaiting execution.

A conversation the despondent author has with his muse, Lady Philosophy, the book seeks the nature of happiness and the nature of God, in the midst of great loss, disgrace, and tyranny. The Consolation of Philosophy belongs to a long tradition of prison literature that extends to Don Quixote, “Civil Disobedience,” and “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” Almost a thousand years after Boethius’s 524 execution, one late Medieval reader of his book—perhaps inspired by the text, or not—left the drawing you see above on the last page of a 15th century English illuminated manuscript.

Good morning, I’m still reporting on Why We Can’t Trust Obama’s CIA! Good evening, I’m still reporting on the Obama CIA. My old friend, Joe Farah, head of WND (WorldNetDaily), has just published a wonderful piece on why we should not trust the CIA’s anonymous source that determined that not only did a hacker connected to the Russian leadership steal the DNC emails, but that this anonymous source even determined that the reason this Russian hacker did it was to help get Donald Trump elected. In SR 1393, I laid out four reasons we shouldn’t trust the Washington Post article that broke this story. But Joe Farah laid out in excellent detail in this article why we can’t trust the CIA because of its leader or DCIA – Director of CIA – John Brennan. Farah speaks from his deep knowledge derived from having followed this story for the last 8 years. He opens with a quote from Ambassador John Bolton – who will most likely be tapped to be the new Assist. Sec. of State sometime today – Tuesday. “I believe intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.” Brennan is a bad actor and has been for some time. When he was sworn in as DCIA not with his hand on a Bible, but on a copy of the original draft of the US Constitution without the Bill of Rights. In other words, without the restrictions on the federal government preventing a citizen’s rights to freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom or religion and the right to keep and bear arms. In his 1980 graduate thesis at the Univ. of Texas at Austin, Brennan argued against freedom of the press, and for the federal government being able to censor out inflammatory articles that could evoke rebellion. “I am in favor of some degree of government censorship. Inflammatory articles can provoke mass opposition and possible violence, especially in developing political systems.” According to a November 2012 Wikileaks email dump, it was Brennan who was behind the “witch hunt” of journalists who reported embarrassing Obama administration leaks. Last month, Brennan warned Donald Trump that scrapping the nuclear deal with Iran would be “the height of folly”. This year, Brennan even admitted supporting the old perpetual communist party candidate, Gus Hall in the 1976 presidential election. Brennan is arguably a supporter – if not a member – of the Muslim Brotherhood. For years, Brennan has met with Brotherhood officials and participates in their events. In 2009 he was their keynote speaker. Why? According to former top FBI experts on Islam, Brennan converted to Islam years ago in Saudi Arabia. Brennan has remained a closet Muslim during his tenure at CIA and has been recruited by the...

Good afternoon, I’m still reporting on Dr. Ben Carson on How to Beat The New World Order But first, Beth got me an early Christmas gift. I’m not into novelty items, but this is just too good. Make Christmas great again. And just let me take this opportunity to applaud Bill O’reilly who has stood up for saying Merry Christmas for several years on his show. We are going to celebrate our holiday and not be afraid to greet everyone we meet with this greeting in the spirit of love and peace towards all humankind – Merry Christmas. Now, to Dr. Carson. Here’s a little 2 minute 50 second clip of Dr. Ben Carson that I got from a YouTube Channel called @admtrainee. It’s of Dr. Carson speaking in a church – apparently Australia – probably within the last few months. Beth was asked to be Dr. Carson’s county coordinator very early on – perhaps late 2014. But as soon as we saw him speak, we knew that he was too weak to win against the magnitude of the forces of darkness that would go all-in to win this election. Even Donald Trump – the most disruptive presidential candidate in my lifetime - barely had the strength to win. No one in American history has put the level of work as Trump did in his last 2-week blitz across this nation. I’m not sure Dr. Carson – even now – recognizes what his role is. He and Mike Huckabee are the conscience of party. And thank God, Dr. Carson agreed to take on one of the most difficult jobs in the new Trump administration, Sec. of Housing and Urban Development. America needs him to take this job and America needs him to stand on the elevated watchtower and speak his mind as the Trump presidency unfolds. And what Dr. Carson is about to say from this pulpit strikes at the very heart of the evil that has taken over our nation that we must now roll back. [insert] I’ve never heard this interpretation before. If anyone knows the scriptures to which Dr. Carson is referring, please email me at stillreport@gmail.com I’m still reporting from Washington.

The Coming Fracture of Saudi Arabia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘The Bible’s book of Galatians, VI teaches, “as you sow, so shall you reap”. And for Saudi Arabia, which has overtly and covertly supported rebellions in Libya, Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Ethiopia, Philippines, and Lebanon that have led to civil wars and inter-religious strife, the day of reckoning may soon be at hand. The present Saudi king, Salman bin Abdul Aziz, is the last of the sons of the first Saudi king, Abdul Aziz al Saud, who will ever sit on the Saudi throne. After Salman dies, Saudi leadership will pass to a new generation of Saudi royals. But not all the descendants of the first Saudi king are happy about how the future succession may turn out.’ Read more: The Coming Fracture of Saudi Arabia

NO. The Grand Tour is NOT The Most Pirated TV-Show in History. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

grandbollocks2Statistics are generally pretty boring, but when pirates come into play it’s an entirely different story.

Yesterday, numerous self-respecting news publications ‘reported’ that Amazon’s Top Gear ‘inspired’ series “The Grand Tour” is now the most pirated TV-show ever, beating Game of Thrones, which held this title for nearly a decade.

While it sounds exciting, it’s not really true.

Admittingly, collecting piracy statistics is far from an exact science. However, even when we look at publicly available data it’s obvious The Grand Tour is no competition for Game of Thrones.

The confusion started with a report from the bastion of quality news reporting, The Daily Mail. “Clarkson’s TV comeback becomes the most illegally downloaded show in history,” it claimed.

The report cites data from piracy monitoring firm MUSO and suggests that the first episode was illegally downloaded 7.9 million times. More than any other show in history, the company’s chief commercial officer claimed.

“It is the most illegally downloaded programme ever. It is off the scale in terms of volume. It has overtaken every big show, including Game Of Thrones, for the totals across different platforms,” MUSO’s Chris Elkins said.

While we’re not going to dispute this number directly, the “most downloaded” claim is nonsense. First of all, it would be virtually impossible for any new show to be the most downloaded ever if it’s up against those that have been available for years.

But, let’s assume that we’re talking about downloads on a weekly basis. Even then, the signs are pretty bad. Looking at the most recent list of most pirated TV-shows on The Pirate Bay shows that several other shows currently outrank The Grand Tour by a wide margin, The Walking Dead in particular.

grandbollocks1

In addition, recent streaming data from several of the most popular streaming sites online places The Grand Tour behind The Walking Dead, which traditionally is far less popular than Game of Thrones.

TorrentFreak has kept a close eye on the most-shared torrents for The Grand Tour, which get roughly 20,000 people sharing simultaneously at their peak. Peanuts compared to Game of Thrones’ record, which sits at over a quarter million.

Drones to be equipped with Britain’s much-vaunted but barely used, Brimstone missiles "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘UK drones are to be equipped with the much-vaunted Brimstone missiles which were used to justify involvement in Syria but then barely used, the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has confirmed. The Brimstone missile, which the UK military claims is particularly accurate, will be used by Britain’s ‘Protector’ drones, rebranded last year from their actual name: Predators. The missile was famously framed as having such a unique capability that it was essential to the US-led combat effort in Syria, a point used to sway the 2015 parliamentary vote to extend the UK’s operations into the war-torn country.’ Read more: Drones to be equipped with Britain’s much-vaunted but barely used, Brimstone missiles

Some versions of Netgear routers remain vulnerable to arbitrary command injection "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A security flaw was discovered in some NetGear routers that could be easily exploited by a remote attacker to gain root access on the device and remotely run code.

Some versions of Netgear routers remain affected by a security flaw that could be exploited by hackers to gain root access on the device and remotely run code. On Friday, a researcher who used the online moniker AceW0rm released a proof-of-concept code exploit because Netgear hasn’t replied to his ethical disclosure.

AceW0rm privately disclosed the flaw to Netgear in August but he did not receive any response from the company.

In a first time, security experts warned of serious security issues in two Netgear routers, the Netgear R7000 and R6400 routers but the situation is worst.

Netgear now as publicly admitted the vulnerability and informed its customer that it is aware of the issue.

“NETGEAR is aware of the security issue #582384 that allows unauthenticated web pages to pass form input directly to the command-line interface. A remote attacker can potentially inject arbitrary commands which are then executed by the system.” reads the Security Advisory for VU 582384 published by Netgear.

The company informed its customers that the following products are vulnerable:

  • R6250
  • R6400
  • R6700
  • R7000
  • R7100LG
  • R7300
  • R7900
  • R8000

The routers belong to Netgear’s Nighthawk line of home routers.

The CERT/CC at the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon University published an advisory to confirm that the vulnerability is quite easy to exploit and suggested to discontinue the use of the routers waiting for a patch.

“Exploiting this vulnerability is trivial. Users who have the option of doing so should strongly consider discontinuing use of affected devices until a fix is made available.” reads the advisory published by the CERT.

The exploitation of the flaw is quite simple, at...

Who pulled Tony Blair’s strings? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

‘Tony Blair “believes that the arc of history still bends towards progress and enlightenment,” a recent profile in the New Statesman proclaimed. The former prime minister’s casual attire and views on the popular TV show “Strictly Come Dancing” were carefully noted by the London weekly, eager to publicize his re-engagement in British politics. Blair’s reverential interviewer did not shy away completely from the Iraq war, yet seemed more concerned about its effects on Blair’s own wellbeing than about its actual victims. By using the phrase “arc of history,” the interviewer was probably invoking Martin Luther King’s aphorism “the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice.” A reputedly serious magazine twisted the words of a civil rights leader to laud a war criminal.’ Read more: Who pulled Tony Blair’s strings?

So This Is What a National Nervous Breakdown Looks Like? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nobody Won the 2016 Election

Elections have consequences, as the cliché goes, and those consequences are unpredictable, perhaps never more unpredictable than when no one wins the election — but someone takes office anyway. When that happens, the country is largely defenseless, as we learned so disastrously in 2000.

That was when we had five unprincipled Supreme Court justices to thank for promoting an actual (but uncounted) loser to the presidency. George W. Bush proceeded to reward the country’s wary trust by blithely ignoring warnings of a terrorist attack, then using 9/11 to jingo up the fear-laden public mood and urge us to go shopping while he (and a complicit Democratic Congress) started wars that have yet to end. (For reasons having nothing to do with decency or justice, Nancy Pelosi led the opposition to impeaching this war-criminal president.) For extra credit, Bush presided over a bipartisan wave of unchecked criminal capitalism that brought the economy to its knees and Democrats to the White House.

That didn’t help. Barack Obama used his “mandate” for hope and change to bail out the criminal capitalists and protect them from prosecution. With Nancy Pelosi’s collusion, he squandered whatever opportunity there was for an effective, single-payer health system, preferring to build a Rube Goldberg construct that coddles insurance companies without even insuring everyone. Obama provided little hope or change to Guantanamo inmates or drone victims, but he left war criminals and torturers unpunished (including himself, of course), while expanding Bush-era wars to other countries.

Now we have a wartime president-elect who didn’t win, and who goes unchallenged by the popular-vote leader who also lost. Roughly half the country is freaking out at the prospect of a future that seems as inherently dangerous and unfair as it is inevitable. Now those freaking out over a Trump presidency have some idea how some Republicans felt six months ago at the prospect of a Trump nomination (although #NeverTrump is as dead as the idea of acting on principle).

Since November 8, much of the country seems to have spiraled into a slough of despond, feeling helpless, directionless, uncomprehending and hopeless. Even the apparent winners seem joyless in their success, their triumph marked less by celebration than by anger, epithets, Nazi graffiti, shootings, and mad tweets. It’s as if everyone knows that there’s no one prepared or qualified to take power, but they’re going to take it anyway, and take it no one knows where.

Whatever we do, we’re along for the ride

There is, as yet, no organized resistance, although there seems to be a widespread, disorganized desire to resist. None of the establishment authorities, for all that some bewail the triumph of Trump, are act...
