Qtum Blockchain Gains Support From PwC; Releases Whitepaper "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Singapore-based Qtum Foundation announced that it is working with global financial services consultancy PwC to help fuel blockchain adoption among international businesses. The Qtum Foundation is developing the Qtum blockchain, an open-source value transfer protocol and decentralized application platform for businesses that executes smart contracts using a proof-of-consensus mechanism. 

The Qtum Blockchain

As part of the cooperation between the two firms, PwC provided input for Qtums newly released whitepaper titled Smart-Contract Value Transfer Protocols on a Distributed Mobile Application Platform, which explains the technical aspects of how its new blockchain platform works.

The whitepaper was authored by Qtums co-founders Patrick Dai, Neil Mahi, Jordan Earls and the projects Scientific Advisor Dr. Alex Norta. It details how Qtums blockchain will allow for mobile usability, how it will be able to interact with the Ethereum Virtual Machine to enable smart contract execution and how smart contract lifecycle management will be applied to improve security by allowing smart-contract collaboration, negotiation, review, and tracking.

The Qtum blockchain will allow lite wallets running on mobile phone devices to interact with DApps and smart contracts. It will support the simple payment verification (SPV) protocol so that transactions can be signed using a mobile device and Internet of Things devices can also be operated and integrated using smart contracts.

Qtums Account Abstraction Layer will allow interaction between the Ethereum Virtual Machine and the Qtums UXTO-based Blockchain and other potential virtual machines in the future. Also, by using a UTXO platform, smart contracts are given more functionalities, flexibility and traceability, compared to pure Ethereum-based smart contracts.

Qtum aims to revolutionize business processes and the way that business interact with their customers by making smart contract technology mobile and practical. The SPV protocol allows smart contracts to move from servers and laptops, into IoT and mobile devices, said Earls.

The whitepaper also addresses potential security concerns, which were highlighted due to the Ethereum DAO compromise of last year. Qtum will use Smart-Contract Lifecycle Management which allows for the collaboration, reviewing, negotiation, and the tracking of smart contracts across organizations by all parties to establish trust through active security vetting.

Supporting a Stable Project Governance Structure

PwC has also supported Qtum in creating its new project governance structure, which will a...

Crowder: Your church is very public about your progressivism correct?

Liberal Church Representative: Yes, thank you.

Crowder: Its very impressive very Christ-like of you to open your doors without so much as security clearance Weve seen online about the current refugee situation and the need to help them. I think were both on board with that, correct?

Church Rep: Yes.

Crowder: Ok, so how many can I put you down for?

Church Rep: Ill have to get back with you on that.

Crowder: Time is of the essence. We have some people here who have obviously come over on planes some by land.. some by sea just wanted to see how many you can house there at your church.

A Digital Archive of Modernist Magazines (1890 to 1922): Browse the Literary Magazines Where Modernism Began "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The story of literary modernism in the English-speaking world is most often told through a small collection of Great Works of Art. These poems and novels appeared suddenly after the shock and carnage of World War I, as Europeans and Americans faced the psychological aftermath of mechanized modern combat and its senseless capacity for mass destruction. T.S. Eliots The Waste Land surveyed the wreckage of European culture and tradition, James Joyces Ulysses showed us history as a nightmare from which its protagonist is trying to awake, Virginia Woolfs Jacobs Room showed the modern self as nothing more than a collection of memories and perceptions, emptied of solid existence.

These so-called high modernist works all appeared in 1922, when most scholars consider modernism to be fully fledged. So writes the Modernist Journals Project (MJP), a joint effort by Brown University and the University of Tulsa, with a number of grants and awards from local sources and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

When English Arts and Crafts Met Japanese Woodblock Prints "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Yoshijiro Urushibara after Frank Brangwyn RA, Devils Bridge, St Gothards pass (1924), colored woodblock print ( William Morris Gallery, London Borough of Waltham Forest)

Those who have seen Frank Brangwyns 1930s murals at Rockefeller Center, a muted scene of finding truth through Christ thats meant to harmonize with Jose Maria Serts more secular and striking fresco of American progress, may be surprised that Brangwyn was a devoted apprentice of William Morris, and brought his printmaking background to a vibrant EastWest collaboration in the 1920s. This more experimental aspect of his career often goes overlooked as these prints, which were created with Japanese artist Yoshijiro Urushibara, are not frequently on view. Sheer Pleasure: Frank Brangwyn and the Art of Japan, now at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, London, celebrates this moment of exchange, with some works exhibited to the public for the first time.

Mark Hudson noted in his review for the Telegraph that Brangwyn made a significant donation of his work and collection of Japanese art to the gallery as a way of repaying his mentor Morris, for whom he apprenticed from 1882 to 1884. Like Morris, Brangwyn was interested in the accessibility of art, calling his donation a humble offering to the people of Walthamstow in the hope that they will enjoy art and remember Morris. Now, 150 years after Brangwyns birth in 1867, the objects can help exalt his own legacy.

Tweeting while Medicine Burns (Psychopharmacology Part 2) "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Part two of a three-part lecture given on February 22 that began with Tweeting while Psychiatry Burns. The text and slides continue from last week. The slides for this part are here.

When his office was ransacked, Delays world was turned upside down but psychiatry and doctors are still here so we won, didnt we?

Corporate Medicine

We didnt win. Both psychiatry and antipsychiatry were swept away and replaced by a new corporate psychiatry. In 1967, the year before Delay was upended, JK Galbraith argued that we no longer have free markets with companies making products we need. Instead, corporations now shape our needs to meet their products (slide 12). It works for cars, oil, and everything else, why would it not work for medicine? Prescription-only status makes medicine easier than any other market a comparatively few hearts and minds need to be won.

Within psychiatry, two factors played a part. One was the emergence of Big Science. This graph from 1974 (slide 13) shows the correlation between affinity for D-2 receptors and the clinical potency of antipsychotics. It was one of the most famous images in modern psychiatry until replaced by fMRI scan images.

The image remains as accurate today as when it was first published. But these binding data introduce something else as well, for which neither Seeman nor Snyder nor others who developed radiolabeled techniques can be held responsible. They introduced a new language, a language of Big Science. Where previously psychiatrists and antipsychiatrists and patients were using the same language, this no longer applied after 1974. After 1974, to get into the debate you had to have a manifold filter and a scintillation counter.

This, as it turned out, was not a science that worked in the interests of patients. No longer answerable, it seems, to how the patients in front of us actually looked, following the science we moved on to megadose regimes of antipsychotics that may have harmed as many brains as were ever injured with psychosurgery. Science wont necessarily save us, it must be applied with wisdom. We have moved into an era when we depend on our experts in a new way we depend on them to be genuine. Conflict of interest began to play as an issue.

Big Risk

Another factor stems from figures like Rene Descartes (slide 14), Blaise Pascal and others, who were behind the development of statistics and probability theory. This laid the basis for the Enlightenment.

Statistics initially referred to government statistics a process of mapping peoples rather than just the land. This led to the notion of the rule of the...

Goodbye to All That: Why Do Artists Reject the Art World? "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Martin Herberts Tell Them I Said No (photo courtesy Sternberg Press)

In 2013, tired of receiving next to no recognition for my work, I decided, without any fanfare, to stop making art. Two years later, through no effort of my own, I was invited to exhibit in a group show at a popular young gallery. A few months later, a well-established gallery offered me a solo show. Miraculously, I found myself back in business. I went back into the studio. My new paintings garnered some positive reviews and a few sales. Then, work got difficult. Instead of providing an incentive, recognition paralyzed me. I felt a sense of political responsibility that I hadnt when I was just painting for myself. Today, a year after that show, Im considering quitting again.

Perfect timing, then, to discover Martin Herberts latest book, Tell Them I Said No (Sternberg Press, 2016), a collection of essays about various artists who have withdrawn from the art world or adopted an antagonistic position toward its mechanisms.

Herbert writes sensitively and beautifully hes an outstanding stylist about the problematic relationship of artists to the art world. The 10 figures he profiles fall, roughly, into three categories: those who play with the system, those who struggle against it, and the ones who walked away in dissatisfaction.

IBMs New Super-Moshing Computer Big Trav Becomes First Machine to Beat Human in Pit "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. IBMs new super-moshing computer Big Trav made history yesterday as the first machine to beat a human in a mosh pit, according to stunned members of the hardcore and AI communities.

Elena Pascocci, the director of IBMs Interactive Media Lab, claimed the journey from basic idea to brutal execution began four years ago in San Francisco.

It was our goal from the beginning to make the kind of machine people would look at and say, Holy shit that robot just decked Ryan. Someone get him to a bathroom and try to stop the bleeding, Pascocci said. It wasnt about the technology for us. It was about the experience. The violent, bone-crunching, face-smashing, poser-bashing experience.

It was an experience few at ODwyers Pub last night will forget. Big Trav, standing over 7-feet-tall and weighing upwards of half a ton, drew a mixture of awe and skepticism from those present many of whom had long speculated about the day a machine, and not a skinhead with bad prison tattoos, would lay someone the fuck out during a breakdown.

I mean, I cant say Im surprised, said Paul Hefferman, a local hardcore expert and witness at ODwyers. First Kasparov was defeated by Deep Blue in the 90s, then that nerd from Seattle got taken down on Jeopardy. It was only a matter of time, I guess.

Related:

To Hefferman and many like him, the mosh pit was the last truly human activity, untainted by the 21st century technology that has left so many jobless.

All any mosher wants to do is go to sleep at night knowing their kids will have pits to throw their limbs around. I just feel a little stupid for thinking that now, Hefferman said. Someone sent me an article about fully automated mosh pits in South Korea. Its only a matter of time before it reaches New York.

Pascocci, for her part, isnt too concerned with what Big Trav might do to the scene.

The Big Trav project is about asking, What would we do if we werent afraid? she explained. Pits are going to be here tomorrow, and theyre going to be here 20 years from no...

Birth rates hit record low in Italy, population shrinks "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

The number of babies born in Italy hit a record low in 2016, the population shrank and the average age crept higher, national statistics office ISTAT said on Monday. Births dropped by 12,000 to 474,000 last year, the lowest level since the unification of Italy in 1861, while deaths totaled 608,000, ISTAT said. The average Italian is now 44.9 years old, up 0.2 years from 2015, while some 22.3 percent of the population is over 65, the highest ratio in the 28-nation European Union. The total population fell by some 86,000 to 60.58 million, with new migrants helping to offset the falling birth rate. ISTAT said fertility rates fluctuated wildly between the industrialized north and the poorer south. On the island of Sardinia, women had 1.07 children on average, while the only province where births rose was in Bolzano, near the border with Austria, where the fertility rate was 1.78. If applied to the whole country, Bolzano's figures would put Italy among the most fertile countries in the European Union, ISTAT said, whereas with Sardinia's rate, "dangerously close to one child per woman, Italy would be in last place in Europe, and likely the world." The overall national average was 1.34 children per woman.

5 Ways to Show Women Youre An Ally When They Finally Put Out "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Its not always easy being a male feminist. Walking the fine line between empathy for the plight of women and also accepting your basest male instincts is a high-wire act few can maintain, let alone fake convincingly. Luckily for you, you dont have to choose between your undying support of womens struggles and achieving sexual release on a regular basis. With these five tips, you can make sure the woman you finally got to put out will have no doubt you are an ally during sex.

1. Apologize for the size of your penis It can be nerve-wracking for a woman to disrobe in front a new partner for the first time, and the situation can be even more alarming if you do not apologize for the elephant in the room: your penis. When you drop your trousers be aware that she is likely scared by the size of your manhood. Reassure her that even though it looks crazy big, you havent had any complaints in the past.

2. Respect her by NOT going down on her A common mistake men who consider themselves allies to women often make is that they think performing oral sex is a sign of respect. WRONG. When performing oral sex, men are often woefully inept, and you are no exception. If you really want to blow her mind, tell her right out the gate you will NOT be performing oral sex because you really suck at it.

3. Acknowledge womens sacrifices when asking for oral In contrast to tip number two, when the inevitable subject of fellatio arises (because you specifically request it) make sure she understands that you appreciate the sacrifices womankind have had to make, and are about to make, on behalf of men. Or man, in this case, you. How you choose to do this is  up to you get creative! Whether its a framed picture of Harriet Tubman on the mantle, or an Eleanor Roosevelt mural, make sure she knows you begrudgingly accept her sacrifice.

Hear All the Music from Martin Scorseses Movies: A 326-Track, 20-Hour Spotify Playlist "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Martin Scorseses cinematic reality, populated by hustlers, wise guys, prize fighters, vigilantes, lawmen, madmen, and moguls, demands settings as vivid as its characters. His movies, often period pieces rooted in particular parts of 20th-century America (and increasingly, earlier eras and farther-flung lands), evoke their times and places most notably with songs. Among their twenty greatest musical moments Indiewire lists Warren Zevons Werewolves of London in The Color of Money, The Clashs Janie Jones in Bringing out the Dead, Mickey & Sylvias Love Is Strange in Casino, and the Rolling Stones Gimme Shelter in The Departed (one of its three uses so far in Scorseses filmography).

But Scorseses involvement with music goes far beyond layering it below, or indeed above, the scenes he shoots. In addition to directing his widely acclaimed features from the New Hollywood 1970s to the present day, hes also led something of a parallel career making films wholly dedicated to music and musicians, including 1978s The Last Waltz, which captured The Bands farewell concert appearance; the 2003 multi-director documentary series The Blues on that venerable American musical tradition; 2005s No Direction Home on Bob Dylan, 2008s Rolling Stones biographical concert film Shine a Light, and 2011s Living in the Material World on George Harrison.






Some of the power of Scorseses musical selections owes to his long friendship with The Bands guitarist Robbie Robertson, which began with The Last Waltz and continues to this day. Weve always had this relationship going back and forth, a ...

St Patricks Day Sewing Ideas Roundup "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

st patricks day sewingWearing the Green

St Patrick's Day is nearly here and as you may know, it is customary to wear shamrocks and/or green clothing or accessories for the holiday.  This tradition is known as the wearing of the green and dates back hundreds of years.  We've decided to put together a collection of free St Patrick's Day Sewing Projects to help you find your green this year!

st patrick's day sewingMy Connection to St Patrick

My husband's family was originally from Ireland, so St. Patrick's Day is always a fun holiday for us.  A few years ago, we were lucky enough to go and visit their ancestral home in Westport, County Mayo, on the beautiful west coast of Ireland.  We had a wonderful time there and Ireland should definitely be on your list of places to visit, especially if you can trace any ancestors there.

To finish the story, just outside Westport is a famous mountain called Croagh Patrick named for St Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, and from the summit of which legend has it that St Patrick cast all the snakes out of Ireland.  (And by the way, still to this day, there are no snakes in Ireland.)  We were fortunate to be visiting at the time of the annual pilgrimage when as many as 3...

City to Teach Kindergartners About Drugs, Darknet, and Addiction "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Communities worldwide continue to blame the darknet for drug problems or usage in schools and other youth organizations. Some countries, for instance, blame increased drug usage on the darknet. Others, in contrast, report outdated drug laws led to more synthetic drug use. Some countries blamed an increase of drug overdoses on the darknet and an influx of synthetic drugs. Some countries, or cities, have claimed to see no increase in drug use or overdose whatsoever. Whatever the case may be, many drug studies have shown that darknet marketplaces have changed the way drugs cross borders and enter bodies.

The most frequent argument used by legislatures is based on the ease of access provided by the darknet. Critics explained that drugs are now far simpler to obtain. No longer does one have to find a drug dealer in real life. Ordering drugs in the mail and having them arrive at the doorstep days, weeks, or sometimes months later, takes far less work. Drug studies have shown that a small percentage of individuals would not have used drugs if not for darknet marketplaces.

However, the majority of darknet marketplace drug users order drugs for different reasons. Many times these users partook in drugs before the darknet existed. The darknet just made the entire process far simpler. Another percentage of drug buyers were found on the darknet marketplaces because they offered higher-quality substances.

Additionally, studies have shown that many buyers look for hard to find or completely unavailable in their area. Study participants often report the inability to find LSD or MDMA nearby and especially at a high level of purity. The darknet marketplaces utilize a rating system where users can rate their experience with a vendors substance. Similar forums exist for the same reason. Individuals can compare experiences and find the pure substance obtainable. And in most cases, these substances are more pure than there would be on the streets.

Officials and humanitarians in the Herford district of North Rhine-Westphalia announced that children aged three to six years old should be taught the dangers of drug use. Klaus Brameier, a local newspaper writer, explain that young children flocked to cannabis because the fear of hard drugs, such as opiates, carried greater weight of consequence.

We often hear from teenagers that cannabis cannot be so bad at all. Their argument: if it is already discussed whether it should be legalized, then there is nothing at all, Uwe Holdmann, a social worker, added. However, this idea is highly dangerous. Especially for young people who are growing up in a difficult...

Victims of Success: an Update from Mad in America Continuing Education "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In mid 2016, we asked Dr. Chris Gordon to consider teaching one of the Mad in America Continuing Education online courses. Dr. Gordon is the inspiring psychiatrist in Framingham, Massachusetts who, eight years ago, responded to a request from a person who had been a client in his program to look into Open Dialogue, an approach to working with early psychosis in Finland. At that time, and unfortunately even now, very few if any mental health professionals in the United States had ever heard of this innovative and highly successful program.

Like Dr. Gordon, many of us began to get interested in Open Dialogue after reading Robert Whitakers Anatomy of an Epidemic in 2010, but Dr. Gordon took it several steps further. He arranged funding from the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care, the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health and his own centers administration to train 35 members of his staff with Mary Olson in Open Dialogue.

Several months ago, we realized our continuing education project was in need of a bit of an overhaul in presentation style, from lectures to live online webinars which would then be posted along with our dozen other courses, all of which were receiving rave reviews from participants for the unique content available nowhere else. For technical improvements, we replaced our learning platform with a new one, Teachable, and chose AdobeConnect to make the webinar mode of presentation a state-of-the art learning experience. We set our goal for participants at 100.

At the same time, we decided to reach out to our own Mad in America, Mad in America Continuing Education, and Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care email lists to alert well over 1,000 of you to this new course offering on Open Dialogue. We also made contact with national organizations and several key leaders in the mental health advocacy world.

So what happened? Within days of announcing the webinar and providing the link to register, we were deluged with enrollments. Everyone wanted to take advantage of the 50% discount we offered on early birds. I think the real motivation, however, was that there is tremendous interest in learning about Open Dialogue and especially its application to an American community. It turns out that a great many professionals, advocates and clinical managers have been hearing about it and hadnt been able to access real-world knowledge like that offered by Dr. Gordon and his program partner, Keegan Arcure.

We put our heads together and decided to invest in the next level of AdobeConnect to make it possible to add another 100 registrations. We expected that we would see another couple of weeks where the interest could translate into more participants. But again, in a couple of days, we filled up to the maximum of 200. And still people contacted us and we had to update all of our announcement...

U.S. Air Force Colonel Blows Whistle On Extraterrestrial Involvement With Apollo 13 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Picture
Since we first turned our dreams of travelling to the moon into a reality, there has been controversy. Some believe that most of the landing footage was faked, and others believe we never even went there, despite there being plenty of evidence suggesting we did. But heres the tricky part some of the footage from various Apollo missions might indeed have been faked or even refurbished.
Many insiders have also accused NASA of doing things like this, but, based on the information we have from sources like these, and many others, it seems the problem is not that we didnt get to the moon, but rather what we found and concealed from the public when we got there.

Rozwell Kid Still Looking for Parking Space for 2015 SXSW Showcase "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

AUSTIN, Texas Two years into circling the 2015 South By Southwest Festival, West Virginia-based band Rozwell Kid announced they are unable to perform as planned due to the absence of available parking spots within the state of Texas.

We hate to let our fans down like this, but once we crossed into Oklahoma looking for a spot, we realized performing at the festival was highly unlikely, the band announced on their Facebook page. Were still looking, but since the date was two years ago, its probably best we cancel.

The band added that they would totally be down for an Austin house show once they find parking.

Sources at SXSW confirmed Rozwell Kids van was spotted in 2015 pulling directly up to their venue before circling at a wider and wider circumference. The band did say that, while things look bad right now, they are optimistic about a spot in Montana after being let down by both Dakotas.

If we knew this would happen, we wouldve packed lighter, said vocalist Jordan Hudkins. Devin thought hed need four bass guitars for a 20-minute set. I dont know how well thatll work with a 1,000-mile walk back to the venue.

Privately, the band reflected on their decision to ultimately cancel the gig.

We hate to disappoint our fans, but after a few years without showers or shaving, we dont even feel like ourselves anymore, said drummer Sean Hallock. We look like a black metal band fucked a thrash metal band.

Despite the exhausting journey, the band reportedly did write a new single during their two-year expedition. It was a blessing in disguise. Once our data plans maxed out, we got our shit together pretty quick, because Sean was fucking drumming on the back of my seat anyways, said Hudkins.

At press time, Rozwell Kid was still looking for the perfect spot, and considering recording their next album on the road since they have nothing better to do.

A New Vancouver Triennial Contends with Making Art in a Gentrified City "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Kim Dorland, Egress (2016), oil on polyester (courtesy of the artist and Equinox Gallery; photo by Rachel Topham, Vancouver Art Gallery)

VANCOUVER A mass-produc1ed, boxlike house seems like a curious namesake for a museum triennial. But given that its the reference behind Vancouver Special: Ambivalent Pleasures, the title for a survey of 40 local artists that the Vancouver Art Gallery launched this year, I felt compelled to investigate further. Visiting the exhibition from across the border, I was unfamiliar with the term, which describes a style of two-level, single-family residences topped with a low-lying roof and banded by a balcony that stretches straight across the faade like braces a structure that seemed at first to be too simple to afford a framework for taking the pulse of a city. Vancouvers history of art-making spans the traditions of First Nations peoples who began there thousands of years ago to the photo-conceptualism, defined by artists like Jeff Wall, Ken Lum, and Rodney Graham, that has garnered the art worlds attention in more recent years. What could an average-seeming architectural style reveal about contemporary art in Vancouver now?

It turns out the Vancouver Special has its own complicated history, as I learned from a project by Ken Lum concurrently on view through artist-run space 221A. Lums 1/3-scale recreation of a house sits in a quiet alley in Vancouvers Chinatown, dwarfed by brick commercial buildings on either side. The dollhouse-sized residence is overly picturesque.

Enmity International to the rescue! "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In the wake of individual hostility, opposition and conflict towards political and economic refugees the EU has proposed the setting up of a new inter-governmental agency to properly focus on human abuse  Enmity International.  Symbolized by a Molotov Cocktail wrapped in a strand of barbed wire, the organisation will take direct action to ensure that migrants suffer as much abuse as possible in their attempts to escape turmoil and build better lives in Europe.

International law comes before aid, said a spokesman for EI. So well be concentrating on strengthening borders and protecting our own populations.  With this in mind, lines of concentration camps will be established along national frontiers where we can safely leave people to fester while we search for a final solution.

Governments will be able to work together under the auspices of EI in securing better deals in the acquisition of tear gas, riot shields and shipping containers.  The spokesman explained: Its a win win situation for EU members and ensures that no individual member State takes on the burden in creating a world of antipathy and inequality.

Landing with his wife and six-year old daughter on an archipelago resembling a cross between Tracy Island and Gitmo,  Mustafa Qabanni gave his own response to the remit of Enmity International:  The only border we want to cross at this moment is the one that is separating humanity from inhumanity. We will journey on until we find it.

From The Atlantic: Throughout history, doctors have often stigmatized and discounted patients suffering from pain without visible injury.

I think health-care providers are well aware that we have illness complaints that defy objective modalities. Of course there are! And they know in the abstract that doesnt make them less real.

But that cognitive knowledgeI dont think that necessarily translates into practice as well as we might like. The entire practice of health care is the anatomo-clinical method. What do we do? We objectify illness. We try to find using all sorts of objective toolswhether its imaging, whether its lab tests, blood drawswe try to find material pathologies that we can clinically correlate with their illness complaints.

Elderly living in fear of EU blitzkrieg "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Many elderly people who voted to leave the EU are living in fear of EU blitzkrieg attacks should the Brexit negotiations end in failure. Apprehension has grown as Article 50 trigger day approaches and some are so worried that they are planning to escape to France or even Germany.

I remember like it was just yesterday, recalled Bert Tibbs, an 85-year-old retired accounts clerk from Sandown, Isle of Wight. I dont want to be dodging German bombs again at my age, even though I know we will be victorious in the end. We didnt have any of these Mars Bars thingies in the War you know. That powdered egg, now, that tasted terrible it did, still playing havoc with my insides

Some OAP Brexiters with long memories of Teutonic treachery are critical of the government for not organising air-raid shelters. However, UKIP leader Paul Nuttall who is himself a retired Field Marshal with a VC for courage above and beyond the call of duty in the Battle of Hillsborough said that he is confident that the peoples Brexiter army will stand firm.

Areas of the country that heavily voted for Brexit are believed to be in the greatest danger, according to UKIP. Stoke-on-Trent, where Nuttall was cheated out of election to Parliament by means of receiving fewer votes than another candidate, is feared by blitz-fearful senior citizens to be particularly vulnerable to EU vengeance.

Just when we need a man with a military brain like Paul to stand firm against the Boche, the Eye-Ties and, er, what do we call Lithuania?, we go and elect a Labour appeaser, said one elderly Stoke resident who has already dug out his World War II gas mask as a precaution.

Although many older people who voted Leave, back the prime minister to defend Britain against Johnny Euro, some express doubts. Mrs May is a good lass, said Tibbs, and shes doing her best, Im sure. But, to be honest, she isnt exactly Field Marshal Montgomery now, is she?

The idea that pesticides are essential to feed a fast-growing global population is a myth, according to UN food and pollution experts. A new report, being presented to the UN human rights council on Wednesday, is severely critical of the global corporations that manufacture pesticides, accusing them of the systematic denial of harms, aggressive, unethical marketing tactics and heavy lobbying of governments which has obstructed reforms and paralysed global pesticide restrictions.

It is a myth, said Hilal Elver, the UNs special rapporteur on the right to food. Using more pesticides is nothing to do with getting rid of hunger. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), we are able to feed 9 billion people today. Production is definitely increasing, but the problem is poverty, inequality and distribution.

The claim that it is a myth that farmers need pesticides to meet the challenge of feeding 7 billion people simply doesnt stand up to scrutiny, said a spokesman for the Crop Protection Association, which represents pesticide manufacturers in the UK The plant science industry strongly agrees with the UN special rapporteurs that the right to food must extend to every global citizen, and that all citizens have a right to food that has been produced in a way that is safe for human health and for the environment, said the spokesman.

The report said: Chronic...

Smart Meters causing tidal wave of mysterious illnesses that strike people in their own homes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In recent years there have been increasing reports that smart meters the digitized electric meters that are designed to send usage figures to power companies wirelessly are causing a range of health issues among a growing portion of the population where such devices are in use.

In fact, notes the EMF Safety Network, a growing number of people from around the world are beginning to report health problems they believe are related to an increased amount of wireless radiation from various devices, including smart meters.

Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However, cell phones, cell towers, wi-fi and other wireless devices can also affect your health, the organization states on its website. Reducing your EMF exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness.

The group also notes that the World Health Organization has classified radiation as a 2B carcinogen, and based that declaration on studies that have linked cell phone radiation to brain tumors.

Vast list of symptoms

As noted by Cancer.org, here is how the devices work:

Smart meters talk to their central systems using RF transmissions, based on a cell phone, pager, satellite, radio, power line (PLC), Wi-Fi or Internet (TCP/IP) communication method. Internet and cell phone applications have become the preferred options because of their flexibility and ease of deployment.

Cancer.org notes further that smart meters are typically installed outside homes and places of business to measure electricity, water and gas usage. How much RF energy people are exposed to depends on how far they are from the antenna that transmits the signal.

The power and frequency of the RF signal emitted from smart meters are similar to those of a typical cellular phone, cordless phone or residential Wi-Fi router. These meters typically send and receive short messages about 1 percent of the time.

Cancer.org notes that the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) named RF radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans, based on findings of at least one stu...

Enchanting Video Shows How Globes Were Made by Hand in 1955: The End of a 500-Year Tradition "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The first globea spherical representation of our planet Earthdates back to the Age of Discovery. Or 1492, to be more precise, when Martin Behaim and painter Georg Glockendon created the Nrnberg Terrestrial Globe, otherwise known as the Erdapfel. It was made by hand. And that tradition continued straight through the 20th century, until machines eventually took over.

Above, you can watch the tail end of a 500-year tradition. Somewhere in North London, in 1955, a woman takes one of the moulds from a shelf and takes it over to a workbench. She fixes it to a device which holds it steady whilst still allowing it to spin. Another girl, notes British Pathe, is sticking red strips onto a larger sphere. After that, coloured printed sections showing the map of the world are cut to shape then pasted onto the surface of the globes. Through that skilled operation, the London-based firm produced some 60,000 globes each year.

Here, you can also watch another globe-making mini-documentary, this one in black & white, from 1949. It gives you a glimpse of a process that takes 15 hours, from start to finish.

French election 2017: Where the candidates stand on energy and climate change "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The French presidential elections are fast approaching with the first voting round set to be held on 23 April and the run-off between the top two candidates if neither wins a majority on 7 May.

Climate change as an issue has risen in importance in France over the past few years, particularly in light of the countrys key role in guiding the historical Paris Agreement into being in 2015. However, it has not featured strongly as an issue in the French elections thus far.

Carbon Brief takes a detailed look at what the three leading candidates have to say about climate change and energy, drawing on their manifestos and public statements.

Whos who

The odds are currently looking good for former economy minister and investment banker Emmanuel Macron, who launched his presidential bid back in November 2016 under his own recently launched progressive party En Marche! (On The Move!).

Marine Le Pen, the right-wing Front National (FN) leader who came third in the last French election in 2012, is also a prominent candidate.

Meanwhile, Republican party nominee Franois Fillon, who served as prime minister of France from 2007 to 2012 under former president Nicolas Sarkozy, is currently continuing in the race despite being embroiled in a scandal over allegations that members of his family were paid public money for fictitious jobs.

Carbon Brief trawled the candidates manifestos and public statements for climate and energy content and translated them into English. The results are summarised in the interactive grid, below.

Inside Oliver Sackss Creative Process: The Beloved Writers Never-Before-Seen Manuscripts, Brainstorm Sheets, and Notes on Writing, Creativity, and the Brain

The act of writing is an integral part of my mental life; ideas emerge, are shaped, in the act of writing a special, indispensable form of talking to myself, Oliver Sacks wrote as he reflected on storytelling and the curious psychology of writing. Indeed, what makes his writing so singular and splendid is that it makes the reader feel like she is listening to the inner song of the writers very consciousness, where concepts are syncopated, ideas harmonized, and divergent associations strummed into a smooth melody of meaning.

What a privilege, then, to witness the raw rhythm of that consciousness in Dr. Sackss notes to himself the creative sandbox in which he worked out his ideas and sketched the skeletons of what he would later flesh out into essays and entire books.

How to Obtain and Use .Bit Privacy Domains "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A decentralized, alternative Domain Name System (DNS) with domains ending in .bit gives webmasters a private way to be in control of their own domain names. Bitcoin.com looked into how to obtain, browse, and deploy these domains.

Also Read: Zeronet Wants to Replace the Dark Web by Marrying Bitcoin to Bittorrent Over Tor 

.bit Domains are Namecoin Assets

The .bit DNS system is a feature of the cryptocurrency namecoin, which is one of the very first altcoins, and is closely modeled after Bitcoin. Namecoin is often mined at the same time using the same equipment as Bitcoin, a process called merged mining. Nearly one-third of all Bitcoin miners merge-mine Namecoin, giving the network about a third of the How to Obtain and Use .Bit Privacy Domainshashrate security that Bitcoin has, which is far more than any other altcoin.

A .bit domain could be used to point to files anywhere such as a Tor hidden site like the Silk Road, a standard webhost without an ICANN-regulated domain name, a Zeronet zite (website), or a folder on a laptop. The ownership of a .bit domain is held in a Namecoin wallet, much like a colored coin or counterparty asset except that it expires after a while.

The purpose in using a cryptocurrency to secure and distribute the domains is to give it very strong decentralization, much like Bitcoin has. Finding the owner of a .bit domain is very difficult to do since the wallets and registrars do not ask for personal information, plus some website owners hide their IP address with Tor.

How to View .bit Domains

These domains can be viewed by installing a web browser extension or through a web page that acts like an extension, such as Opennicproject. Googles Chrome browser has a few extensions made for viewing .bit websites such as dotbit.me web surfer, dot-bit-proxy-extension, and PeerName. After loading one of those extensions, browsing .bit sites is just like browsing any other websites.

The Great Indian Poet and Philosopher Tagore on Truth, Human Nature, and the Interdependence of Existence

Nature, the soul, love, and God, one recognizes through the heart, and not through the reason Reason is a tool, a machine, which is driven by the spiritual fire. So wrote the young Fyodor Dostoyevsky as he contemplated how we come to know truth. Nearly a century later, the great Indian poet and philosopher Rabindranath Tagore (May 7, 1861August 7, 1941) explored this question from a kindred angle, bringing to it the tools of philosophy, scientific knowledge, and spiritual inquiry.

In May of 1930, two months before his famous conversation with Einstein about the intersection of science and spirituality and seventeen years after he became the first non-European to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature, Tagore delivered a series of lectures at Oxford University exploring human nature, spirituality, and our experience of reality. The following year, they were collected in The Religion of Man (public library).

Despite Increase in Treatments, Prevalence of Mental Health Issues Climbs "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A new study published in World Psychiatry discusses trends in treatment and prevalence of mood disorders across four countries: Australia, Canada, England, and the U.S. Results point to increases in the prevalence of mood disorders, even though each country has also had increases in treatment availability. The authors, each one based out of a different country, posit different theories as to why this occurs.

All four countries have had increases in rates of treatment for these disorders since the 1990s Despite these changes, none of the four countries had any evidence for a reduction in prevalence of disorders or symptoms over the period. If anything, there were indications of changes in the opposite direction in Australia, England and the US, wrote the authors.

Mental health issues, particularly mood disorders, are a common source of disability amongst developed countries. In 2001 the World Health Organization made recommendations as to how to close the treatment gap an issue which arises out of the high number of mental disorder diagnoses in developing countries, compared to the number of individuals receiving some kind of treatment. As the authors of this paper state, in order to close this treatment gap it has been suggested that treatment services need to be augmented. However, no other study has actually reported on whether this increase in services has led to a reduction in the prevalence of mental disorders.

For this study, the authors conducted a review to evaluate, whether increases in treatment provision have been associated with a reduction in prevalence of common mental disorders, particularly as it relates to mood and anxiety disorders in adults. The authors reviewed studies published between 1990 and 2015, focusing on epidemiology and trends of these disorders.

The authors discuss the increased resources and treatments in each of the countries, including increases to access in care, increases in mental health workers, provision of psychological therapies, and use of antidepressants and other pharmacological agents. In the U.S. specifically, antidepressant medication treatment saw a marked...

Android Trojan Marcher Almost Impossible to Eliminate "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

In the recent months, different types of malware manifested itself in various forms, spanning most common platforms. Perhaps the most notorious piece of malicious code came from the FBI themselves; they used a controversial NIT on Tor users worldwide. A more common type of machine infection, within these past few months, took the form of banking trojans. Modernized and increasingly active variants have surfaced as of late, and one such example took the form of an Android trojan called Marcher.

Nearly half of Mount Oku frogs are in danger of croaking, study finds "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Amphibians around the world are in a state of crisis. Over 40 percent are threatened with extinction. Chytrid fungus, a disease fatal to most amphibians, is decimating populations already threatened by human impacts like climate change, pesticides, and deforestation. Before conservationists can develop action plans to protect amphibians, however, they need to know which species are where. Thats where species surveys come in. Last month, a pair of researchers, Thomas Doherty-Bone and Vclav Gvodk, published an updated list of amphibian species found on Mount Oku in Cameroon. The new list is a result of over a decade of work, and provides vital information about one of the most unique mountains in Cameroon: Mount Oku, a dormant volcano boasting high numbers of rare and endemic species. Doherty-Bone and Gvodk doubled the size of Mount Okus old amphibian inventory, adding 25 new species. In addition, they discovered one species of puddle frog potentially new to science. If confirmed, it would mean 51 amphibians inhabit the mountain. Troublingly, the scientists also found that nearly half of the species on the mountain are likely threatened with extinction. The researchers consider forest degradation to be the main culprit, but puddle frogs (the genus Phrynobatrachus), are currently declining at especially alarming rates. David Blackburn, a University of Florida herpetologist with a long research history in Cameroon, has seen this first-hand. These were species that were literally everywhere, he said of puddle frogs.

USA Today Ridiculed for Column by Industry Front Group "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) is a non-profit organization with the motto "Science. Not Hype."

It claims to be an independent research and advocacy organization consisting of concerned scientists who are devoted to debunking junk science, with a mission to "publically support evidence-based science and medicine."1

So, to hear that ACSH members have authored science columns published by USA Today may not immediately seem concerning, nor newsworthy, but if you dig even slightly beneath the surface it becomes clear that ACSH is not an organization to be trusted and viewed as an independent source on science.

In a letter to the editors of USA Today, more than two dozen doctors and health, environmental, labor and public-interest groups called on the news outlet to stop publishing ACSH content or at least require that it be identified for what it truly is: a corporate front group. The letter begins:2

"We are writing to express our concern that USA Today continues to publish columns written by members of the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH), a corporate-funded group with a long history of promoting corporate agendas that are at odds with mainstream science.

USA Today should not be helping this group promote its false identity as a credible, independent source on science. Your readers deserve accurate information about what and whom this group represents, as they reflect on the content of the columns."

ACSH Tries to Shape Science to Support Its Corporate Funders

The ACSH has defended everything from fracking and pesticides to bisphenol-A (BPA) and genetically engineered (GE) foods.

How CDC Uses False Fears to Promote Vaccine Uptake "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Five years ago, political lobbyist Jack Abramoff shocked the nation when, in a 60-Minute Report, he revealed just how corrupt the U.S. political system really is. As it turns out, it's actually worse than most critical outsiders could have imagined.

Now, the downfall of yet another high-powered corporate lobbyist is shedding light on tactics used to promote drug industry interests.

Other recent news reveals how the CDC uses scare tactics to incentivize people into getting an annual flu shot despite studies repeatedly showing that flu shots have been from zero to less than 50 percent effective in preventing type A or B influenza over the past decade.1

For this flu season, the CDC estimates the vaccine has failed about 60 percent of the time to prevent infection with the most prevalent A strain circulating this year.2

The Rise and Fall of a Roche VP

In "The Rise and Fall of a K Street Renegade," published in The Wall Street Journal,3 Brody Mullins details the suspected wrongdoings of Evan Morris, who at age 27 became a top Washington lobbyist for Roche Holdings AG, one of the largest drug companies in the world.

In July, 2015, he came under federal investigation, suspected of embezzling millions of company dollars through various schemes. Part of Morris' genius was his ability to capitalize on and shape public sentiment through the use of media, advertising, opinion polls, focus groups and the creation of front groups.

According to Mullins, "He sponsored nonprofits that engaged in letter-writing campaigns and organized patient groups that demanded Medicare reimbursement for his firm's drugs."

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considered banning the cancer drug Avastin, Morris created the non-profit group, Patient Care Action Network. Morris recruited doctors and patients who then did Morris' work for him, urging their congressional representatives to oppose the FDA.

The threat of antimicrobial resistance is increasing around the globe, including in the European Union (EU), where the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) released a new report on this urgent matter.1

Antimicrobial resistance refers to microorganisms bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites that, after exposure to antimicrobial drugs (such as antibiotics, antifungals, antivirals, antimalarials, and anthelmintics), evolve and become impervious to them.2

The resulting superbugs pose a serious threat to public health. In the EU, 25,000 deaths occur every year due to infections caused by antimicrobial-resistant bacteria alone.3

EU Reports High Levels of Drug-Resistant Bacteria, Especially Salmonella

Data submitted by 28 EU member states in 2015 revealed antimicrobial resistance remains high in bacteria from humans, animals and food in the E.U., with multidrug-resistant salmonella noted as a particularly serious threat.

Nearly 30 percent of the salmonella isolates that can cause illness in humans displayed multidrug resistance, including to sulfonamides (more than 32 percent), tetracyclines (28 percent) and ampicillin (nearly 28 percent).4

One particularly common type of salmonella in humans, monophasic salmonella typhimurium, had extremely high multidrug-resistance rates of 81 percent, leading Mike Catchpole, chief scientist at ECDC, to state:5

Prudent use of antibiotics in human and veterinary medicine is extremely important to address the challenge posed by antimicrobial resistance. We all have a responsibility to ensure that antibiotics keep working.

Infection with salmonella is the second-most common foodborne infection in the EU, second only to infections caused by campylobacter. Among campylobacter isolates from humans, very high to extremely high resistance to the drug ciprofloxacin was reported in some cases 80 percent to 100 percent.6...

Snowden Issues Warning: Do Not Use Googles Messaging App Under Any Circumstances "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Unless you want law enforcement to be able to trawl all your communications, dont under any circumstances use Googles newest messaging app, Allo, Edward Snowden just warned.

What is #Allo? A Google app that records every message you ever send and makes it available to police upon request, the whistleblower advised in a tweet.

Google had earlier claimed it would include end-to-end encryption, storing messages transiently and in non-identifiable form, similar to its prospective primary competitor, WhatsApp.

However, the company announced drastic anti-privacy changes on Wednesday the very day it rolled out the app.

Some Thoughts Towards an Ontology for Smart Contracts "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The concept of smart contracts has grown considerably since the birth of Ethereum. We've seen an explosion of interdisciplinary research and experimentation bundling legal, social, economic, cryptographic and even philosophical concerns into a rather strange milieu of tokenized intellect. Yet despite this digital cambrian explosion of thought, there seems to be a lack of a unified Ontology for smart contracts.

What exactly is an Ontology? Eschewing the philosophical sense of the word, an Ontology is simply a framework for connecting concepts or groups alongside their properties to the relationships between them. It's a fundamental word that generally is the attempt at bedrock for a topic. For example, it's meaningful to discuss the Ontology of democracy or the Ontology of mathematics.

Why exactly would one want to develop an Ontology for smart contracts? What is gained from this exercise? Is it mostly an academic exercise or is there a prescriptive value to it? I suppose there are more questions to glean, but let's take a stab at the why.

Smart contracts are essentially two concepts mashed together. One is the notion of software. Cold, austere code that does as it is written and executes for the world to see. The other is the idea of an agreement between parties. Both have semantical demands that humans have traditionally had issues with and both have connections to worlds beyond the scope in which the contract lives in.

Much of the focus of our current platforms such as Ethereum is on performance or security, yet abstracting to a more Ontological viewpoint, one ought to ask about semantics and scope.

From a semantical perspective, we are trying to establish what the authors and users of smart contracts believe to be the purpose of the contract. Here we have consent, potential for non est factum style circumstances, a hierarchy of enforceability and other factors that have challenged contract law. What about cultural and linguistic barriers? Ambiguity is also king in this land.

Where normal contracts tend to pragmatically bind to a particular jurisdiction and set of interpretations with the escape hatch of arbitration or courts to parse purposeful ambiguity, decentralized machines have no such luxury. For better or worse, there is a pipeline with smart contracts that amplify the semantical gap and then encapsulate the extracted consensus into code that again suffers from it's own gap (Loi Luu demonstrated this recently using Oyente).        

Then these structures presume dominion over something of value. Whether this dominion be data, tokens or markers that represent real life commitments or things such as deeds or titles. For the last category, like software giving recommend...

Sick, dying and raped in America's nursing homes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The unthinkable is happening at facilities throughout the country: Vulnerable seniors are being raped and sexually abused by the very people paid to care for them. It's impossible to know just how many victims are out there. But through an exclusive analysis of state and federal data and interviews with experts, regulators and the families of victims, CNN has found that this little-discussed issue is more widespread than anyone would imagine. In cases reviewed by CNN, victims and their families were failed at every stage. Nursing homes were slow to investigate and report allegations because of a reluctance to believe the accusations - or a desire to hide them. Police viewed the claims as unlikely at the outset, dismissing potential victims because of failing memories or jumbled allegations. State regulators failed to flag patterns of repeated allegations against a single caregiver. It's these systemic failures that make it especially hard for victims to get justice - and even easier for perpetrators to get away with their crimes. Using inspection reports filed between 2013 and 2016 [a CNN analysis] found that the federal government has cited more than 1,000 nursing homes for mishandling or failing to prevent alleged cases of rape, sexual assault and sexual abuse at their facilities during this period. And nearly 100 of these facilities have been cited multiple times during the same period. These numbers likely represent only a fraction of the alleged sexual abuse incidents in nursing homes nationwide.

Berta Cceres court papers show murder suspects' links to US-trained elite troops "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Leaked court documents raise concerns that the murder of the Honduran environmentalist Berta Cceres was an extrajudicial killing planned by military intelligence specialists linked to the countrys UStrained special forces. Cceres was shot dead a year ago while supposedly under state protection after receiving death threats over her opposition to a hydroelectric dam. The murder of Cceres, winner of the prestigious Goldman environmental prize in 2015, prompted international outcry and calls for the US to revoke military aid to Honduras, a key ally in its war on drugs. Eight men have been arrested in connection with the murder, including one serving and two retired military officers. Officials have denied state involvement in the activists murder, and downplayed the arrest of the serving officer Maj Mariano Daz. But ... Daz, a decorated special forces veteran, was appointed chief of army intelligence in 2015. Another suspect, Lt Douglas Giovanny Bustillo joined the military on the same day as Daz. Daz and Bustillo both received military training in the US. A third suspect, Sgt Henry Javier Hernndez, was a former special forces sniper, who had worked under the direct command of Daz. Last year, the Guardian reported that a former Honduran soldier said he had seen Cceress name on a hitlist that was passed to US-trained units. Sgt Rodrigo Cruz said that two elite units were given lists featuring the names and photographs of activists and ordered to eliminate each target.

Note: The Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation, formerly known as the School of the Americas, reportedly graduated more than 500 human rights abusers. The identities of many other US-trained troops operating in other countries remain hidden by US courts.

Shell knew: oil giant's 1991 film warned of climate change danger "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The oil giant Shell issued a stark warning of the catastrophic risks of climate change more than a quarter of century ago in a prescient 1991 film that has been rediscovered. Shells 28-minute film, called Climate of Concern ... warned of extreme weather, floods, famines and climate refugees as fossil fuel burning warmed the world. A separate 1986 report, marked confidential and also seen by the Guardian, notes: The changes may be the greatest in recorded history. The predictions in the 1991 film for temperature and sea level rises and their impacts were remarkably accurate. Shell was one of the first major oil companies to accept the reality and dangers of climate change. But, despite this early and clear-eyed view of the risks of global warming, Shell invested many billions of dollars in highly polluting tar sand operations and on exploration in the Arctic. It also cited fracking as a future opportunity in 2016, despite its own 1998 data showing exploitation of unconventional oil and gas was incompatible with climate goals. Shell ... is estimated to have spent $22m in 2015 lobbying against climate policies, [and] has also been a member of industry lobby groups that have fought climate action. Another oil giant, Exxon Mobil, is under investigation ... for allegedly misleading investors about the risks climate change posed to its business. In early 2016, a group of congressmen asked the Department of Justice to also investigate whether Shells actions around climate change violated federal law.

Scientists Seek Ban On Monsantos RoundUp "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A delegation of independent scientists urged the EPA to ban RoundUp, Monsantos flagship herbicide. Providing testimony that it poses an unreasonable risk to humans, animals, and the environment, scientists spoke at a closed meeting with EPA [officials]. The scientists explained the physiological reasons why exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in RoundUp, is linked to autism, Alzheimers, cancer, birth defects, obesity, gluten intolerance, among other health issues. 300 million pounds of RoundUp are sprayed each year on corn, soy, sugar beets, canola, and weeds in the United States alone. $5 billion, or half Monsantos annual sales, comes from glyphosate-containing products. Dr. Stephen Frantz, Pathobiologist Research Scientist led the team. When a cell is trying to form proteins, it may grab glyphosate instead of glycine to form a damaged, mis-folded protein. After that its medical chaos ... with many diseases and disorders as a result. Moms Across America founder Zen Honeycutt was a participant at the meeting. Her son had been a casualty of processed foods, diagnosed with autism until his mother switched to an all-organic diet. Mothers and caretakers are seeing their loved ones get sick on GMOs and glyphosate/herbicide sprayed foods and get better when they avoid them. Because glyphosate is contaminating our urine, water, breast milk and nearly all our foods, we are systematically causing sickness throughout America.

Note: The negative health impacts of Monsanto's Roundup are well known. Lawsuits are building over Monsanto's lies to regulators and the public about the safety of glyphosate. Yet the EPA continues to use industry studies to declare Roundup safe while ignoring independent scientists.

Big Pharma Lost $24.6 Billion in 20 Minutes During Donald Trumps Press Conference "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Pharmaceutical companies are "getting away with murder," President-elect Donald Trump said during his Wednesday press conference. After Trump mentioned drug prices and pharmaceutical companies' tax inversions, the nine biggest pharmaceutical companies by market cap on the S&P 500 shed roughly $24.6 billion in 20 minutes. The SPDR S&P Biotech exchange-traded fund, which tracks pharmaceutical stocks, fell nearly 4% in that time, while the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index fell 3% in the same period. Granted, the loss in market cap for big pharma is small relative to companies' overall market cap - a 3% decrease from their combined $906.8 billion before Trump's speech. For the most part, pharmaceutical executives were relieved when Trump won the election. That's because Hillary Clinton, the one-time Democratic presidential nominee, heavily criticized drug companies on the campaign trail. Big pharmaceutical executives hoped that Trump would not come down as hard on their industry. Even now, it seems investors aren't all that worried about Trump's press conference criticisms: The SPDR S&P Biotech ETF is still up nearly 9% since election day. Merck's stock has managed to stay in the green despite losses during Trump's speech, thanks to news that the Food and Drug Administration had decided to speed up the review of a one of its lung-cancer treatments.

Note: Yet less than a month later, Trump completely changed his tune to support big Pharma, as shown in this Chicago Tribune article. For more along these lines, see concise summaries of deeply revealing Big Pharma corruption news articles from reliable major media sources.

Trump had a good idea on drug costs. He ditched it after meeting with pharma execs. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

It was Tuesday morning. The new president was about to go into a meeting with chief executives from Johnson & Johnson, Merck and a handful of other major pharma companies. During his campaign, he often said that if he were elected, the federal government would start negotiating with the drug companies over the prices Medicare and Medicaid had to pay for drugs -- something it's now prevented from doing by statute. Pharma companies were "getting away with murder," he said on Jan. 10. A few weeks later, he claimed that the government would save $300 billion if it could negotiate prices. "We don't do it," he said. "Why? Because of the drug companies." "We have to get prices down," he says at the beginning of the meeting with cameras rolling. "We have no choice." Then the doors were closed. When they opened again, Trump had not only abandoned his promise to use the government's bargaining power to bring down drug prices, he was now totally against it! "I'll oppose anything that makes it harder for smaller, younger companies to take the risk of bringing their product to a vibrantly competitive market," he said. "That includes price-fixing by the biggest dog in the market, Medicare, which is what's happening." He accused an agency that has no power to negotiate prices of "price-fixing." And so it was that after one meeting with pharma CEOs, Trump was turned around on his one good idea and embraced instead yet another nonsensical one.

The child abuse scandal of the British children sent abroad "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

For several decades, the UK sent children across the world to new lives in institutions where many were abused and used as forced labour. It happened to thousands of British children ... following World War Two. The astonishing scandal of the British child migrants will be the first subject for which the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse will hold full public hearings. It's first because the migrants are now nearing the end of their lives. Sources close to the current public inquiry have told the BBC it will produce new and startling revelations about the scale of sexual abuse abroad, and attempts by British and Australian institutions to cover it up. This will include an examination of the claims of some child migrants that they were sent abroad weeks after reporting sexual abuse at their children's home in the UK. The allegation is that they were hand-picked. Either to get them out of the way, or because they were of interest to paedophiles. Three former Fairbridge boys have claimed that the then-Australian Governor General, Lord Slim, sexually molested them during rides in his chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce while visiting the home. It is understood these allegations could be considered by the inquiry. The inquiry could also definitively answer a crucial historical question. Did the British government know it was sending children to be mistreated in a foreign country?

Note: Watch an excellent segment by Australia's "60-Minutes" team "Spies, Lords and Predators" on a pedophile ring in the UK which leads to the highest levels of government.

Study claims more than 80% of 'dark net' traffic is to child abuse sites "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

More than 80% of so-called dark net internet traffic is generated by visits to websites offering child-abuse material, according to a study of Tor hidden services websites conducted at the University of Portsmouth. Researcher Dr Gareth Owen analysed traffic to sites using Tors technology to hide their addresses from search engines over a six-month period, in an attempt to understand what kind of sites were most popular. He presented his findings at the Chaos Computer Congress in Germany, with Wired reporting on the researchs conclusion that while sites with paedophile material represent just 2% of the estimated 45,000 hidden services websites online at any one time, they account for 83% of visits to these sites once automated botnet traffic is removed from calculations. The study focuses on websites using Tors technology to hide themselves, rather than the surfing habits of individual internet users using Tors anonymising features. The latter are not spending 84% of their time visiting child-abuse websites. Before we did this study, it was certainly my view that the dark net is a good thing, but its hampering the rights of children and creating a place where paedophiles can act with impunity, Owen told Wired, while describing the scale of traffic to these sites as a huge shock. The study found that less than a sixth of hidden services sites that were online in March when the research started were still online in September when it concluded, suggesting a short average lifetime for these websites.

Acting on a Deadly Stage: A Drug Agent's Life In Deep Cover "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Some drug traders first saw him as a heroin smuggler in Thailand. Others met him as a cocaine buyer in Buenos Aires. And others as a gunrunner in Buffalo. He can recall how they all looked into his eyes, trusted him and, as a result, went to jail. Michael Levine, a special agent of the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration ... is described by his agency as an expert in "deep cover" - an agent who assumes invented characters to penetrate underworld organizations. Deep cover means living among criminals for weeks or months at a time, unable to return home or admit to anyone one's real name. After playing the part of underworld figures for the Federal Government for 21 years, Mr. Levine now works as a supervisor in the D.E.A.'s New York office. Deep cover specialists play a crucial role in the D.E.A.'s long-term narcotics investigations, as well as in major investigations of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms ... and some local police departments. "You have to divide your brain in half," Mr. Levine said. "This half is the character you are playing. This half is always a Federal agent recording the details. If the half that is a Government official becomes inefficient, it can cost you your life." Over the years, [Mr. Levine] has been stationed in New York, Washington, Miami, Buenos Aires and Germany, and has followed investigations to Asia, South America and the Middle East.

Note: Mike Levine went on to blow the whistle about rogue elements in the US government who were directly involved with running drugs and had his life threatened as a result. Read his fascinating and revealing personal story on this webpage.

The staggering bravery of a Muslim immigrant foster father who has devoted the past two decades to caring for dozens of terminally ill children "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

To foster any child takes an extraordinary amount of selfless love and devotion. But one man in Los Angeles has taken on an even more monumental role: caring for the city's dying children. Mohamed Bzeek is ... a devout Libyan-born Muslim who has spent the last 20 years giving hope and comfort to children no other person would touch - ten of whom have died. 'The key is, you have to love them like your own,' Bzeek told the Los Angeles Times. 'I know they are sick. I know they are going to die. I do my best as a human being and leave the rest to God.' Bzeek, 62, moved to the US ... in 1978. He began fostering children in 1989, and in 1991 he experienced his first death. The girl had been affected in the womb by pesticides sprayed on her farm-worker mother, and her spine was so deformed that she had to wear a full body cast. She was in his home for just a year when she passed away. Bzeek still has a photograph of the girl. Now, Bzeek is caring for a girl who was born with encephalocele, which left her mentally and physically underdeveloped. She is blind and deaf, paralyzed in her arms and legs, and suffers seizures every day. But Bzeek keeps a vigil, day and night, over her tiny body, to make sure she has as much comfort as he can give her. 'I know she cant hear, can't see, but I always talk to her,' he said. 'I'm always holding her, playing with her, touching her. She has feelings. She has a soul. She's a human being.' Doctors gave up hope on the girl ... when she was two years old. She is now six.

This Town Adopted Trauma-Informed CareAnd Saw a Decrease in Crime and Suspension Rates "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There was a time at Lincoln, a school once known as a last resort for those who were expelled from the areas other high schools, when fights often ended in out-of-school suspensions or arrests. But Principal Jim Sporleder ... created an environment built on empathy and redemption through a framework called trauma-informed care, which acknowledges the presence of childhood trauma in addressing behavioral issues. The practices ... begin with the understanding that childhood trauma can cause adulthood struggles like lack of focus, alcoholism, drug abuse, depression, and suicide. At Lincoln ... the graduation rate increased by about 30 percent and suspensions decreased by almost 85 percent a year after implementing the framework. Sporleder first arrived at the school in April 2007. The building was in a constant state of chaos. Sporleder took a hard line by handing out ... three-day out-of-school suspensions. Then, in the spring of 2010, he attended a workshop ... on the impacts of stressful childhood experiences. Keynote speaker John Medina, a developmental molecular biologist, explained how toxic stress overfills the brain with cortisol, also known as the stress hormone. Sporleder suddenly understood that his students behavior wasnt completely in their control; their brains were affected by toxic stress. It just hit me like a bolt of lightning that my discipline was punitive and it was not teaching kids, he said. So he set out on a mission to bring trauma-informed care to his students.

Swedens recycling is so revolutionary, the country has run out of rubbish "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Sweden is so good at recycling that, for several years, it has imported rubbish from other countries to keep its recycling plants going. Less than 1 per cent of Swedish household waste was sent to landfill last year or any year since 2011. Sweden was one of the first countries to implement a heavy tax on fossil fuels in 1991 and now sources almost half its electricity from renewables. Over time, Sweden has implemented a cohesive national recycling policy so that even though private companies undertake most of the business of importing and burning waste, the energy goes into a national heating network to heat homes through the freezing Swedish winter. Thats a key reason that we have this district network, so we can make use of the heating from the waste plants. We use [the waste] as a substitute for fossil fuel, ... says Anna-Carin Gripwall, director of communications for the Swedish Waste Managements recycling association. The aim in Sweden is still to stop people sending waste to recycling in the first place. A national campaign ... has for several years promoted the notion that there is much to be gained through repairing, sharing and reusing. She describes Swedens policy of importing waste to recycle from other countries as a temporary situation. Theres a ban on landfill in EU countries, so instead of paying the fine they send it to us as a service. They should and will build their own plants, to reduce their own waste, as we are working hard to do in Sweden, Ms Gripwall says.

Muslim activists raise over $70,000 to aid vandalized Jewish cemetery "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As of early Wednesday morning, a crowdfunding campaign started by Muslim activists had raised over $70,000 in an effort to help repair a vandalized Jewish cemetery. "Muslim Americans stand in solidarity with the Jewish-American community to condemn this horrific act of desecration against the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery," read the crowdfunding campaign's website, which was spearheaded by Muslim-American activists Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi. The effort comes after more than 170 headstones were damaged late Sunday or early Monday at Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery, located in the St. Louis suburb of University City. The incident at the cemetery comes amid a spate of threats directed at Jewish centers across the nation this year. The FBI and the Justice Department announced earlier this week that they would investigate the multiple bomb threats directed toward at least 60 Jewish centers, including 11 threats made on Monday alone. The fundraisers for the "Muslims Unite to Repair Jewish Cemetery" campaign said they launched the campaign in an effort to "send a united message from the Jewish and Muslim communities" and to condemn "hate, desecration, and violence." The campaign said the proceeds would go directly to the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery, and that any additional funds leftover after the cost of restoration would "assist other vandalized Jewish centers nationwide.

Building An 80% Firearm- Part 1, by Tupreco "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Learn the Why and How The election of Donald Trump is beginning to show concrete steps toward dialing back the Obama administrations numerous efforts to undermine our Second Amendment rights. How that will continue to play out remains to be seen. Surprisingly though, even on Obamas watch there were several pro-2A court and legislative victories, including expansion of concealed carry in many states. Another thing that occurred while Obama was in office was an unexpected but welcome surprise from the ATF. Several years ago, a well-known AR-15 parts manufacturer requested and received the ATFs formal approval to manufacture and sell, without restriction, a partially-finished AR-15 lower receiver. This receiver would only be legal for unrestricted sale if the ATF approved the exact design where several very specific features remained un-machined or marked in a way that would aid in its completion. This partially-complete receiver (now commonly called an 80% receiver) required that the through holes for the trigger and hammer pins be omitted and that solid material must remain where the cavity for all of the trigger components would normally be milled out. This new approach was clearly designed to attract buyers who would then complete the steps left unfinished. Continue reading

Letter Re: Dental Emergencies Questions "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Dear Editor, After combing through the dental information on your blog, Im hoping you might report a new and comprehensive article on dental care and how to be prepared. I think it important to address this issue because dental woes can render a person unable to function. As one of your blog entries noted, broken bones and other injuries of the body will eventually knit up, but a tooth abscess will only get worse and can actually become fatal. Im looking to know what equipment is needed to address tooth extractions whether I have to do it myself, or, in a changed world, will need those instruments to bring to any available dentist still practicing. I dont see that any of your advertisers carry extraction instruments. There are many tools on the market, but what tools are reliable and of good quality? And how about info on surgical tool sterilization in a grid down situation? What about lidocaine for addressing pain in dental surgery? Can it be obtained through a veterinary site? Can the syringe and needles at least be obtained? Thanks for your informative blog. KB HJLs Comment: SurvivalBlog implemented a new search engine this week, and you Continue reading

Support this important annual event through online donations or in-kind contributionsdresses, shoes, jewelry, makeup, hair accessories and gift cardsuntil Friday, March 17

Published March 7, 2017

EAGLE BUTTE, SOUTH DAKOTA The Cheyenne River Youth Project has announced that Cecilia FireThunder, the first woman to serve as president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, will be keynote speaker at this years eagerly anticipated Passion for Fashion. The event is scheduled for 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 25 at the Cokata Wiconi (Center of Life) teen center in Eagle Butte.

Annual Passion for Fashion Event Brings Hope for young ladies living on Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

Were honored to welcome Cecilia FireThunder to our community and to our 2017 Passion for Fashion event, said Julie Garreau, CRYPs executive director. This event is all about lifting up our young Lakota women, in every aspect, from supporting their wellness to strengthening the connection to their culture. Cecilia has an impressive background in native health, wellness and education, with a particular emphasis on healing. Were very much looking forward to giving our youth this opportunity to hear her speak.

FireThunder is a member of the Kiyaksa Tiospaye in Kyle, South Dakota. She spoke only Lakota until age 5, after which she attended Catholic boarding school. Her family took part in the Indian Relocation program when she was a child; she completed high school in California, became a nurse, founded the American Indian Free Clinic in Los Angeles, and later co-founded the American Indian Health Center in San Diego.

In 1987, FireThunder returned to Kyle and co-founded the Oglala Lakota Womens Society, which brought attention to violence against Lakota women and children, and she provided valuable assistance in addressing the high rate of youth suicides. Over the years, she traveled to tribal communities across the United States and Canada, addressing the topics of wellness and  healing, and in 2004, sh...

Cherokee Nation Native Youth M.O.V.E. Group First Nationally Recognized Chapter in the State "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

 

Ashley Lincoln, pictured second from the left, meets with students who are members of the tribes Native Youth M.O.V.E. Heroes at Sequoyah High School.

Published March 7, 2017

TAHLEQUAH The Cherokee Nation now has the first nationally recognized Youth M.O.V.E. chapter in the state of Oklahoma.

The tribes Native Youth Motivating Others Through Voices of Experience (M.O.V.E.) Heroes group is a partnership between the Cherokee Nation HERO Project and Sequoyah High School. Under the leadership of the HERO Project, Sequoyah students meet weekly to discuss and advocate solutions on issues facing youth.

In addition to having the first chapter in the state, the Cherokee Nation is also the fourth tribe to have an accredited chapter in the nation.

Our overall goal is that our Native youth will have a voice and choice in the programs, systems and policies that affect them. We want youth to have a seat at the table and for that inclusion to be standard in the future, said Ashley Lincoln, evidence-based intervention specialist for the HERO Project.

Cherokee Nation citizen and Sequoyah freshman Liliana Rojas said the group is different from other groups at Sequoyah High School because anyone can join and have their voice heard.

Our group has an inviting feeling, and in my opinion we have a lot of potential to do something great, said Rojas.

In 2016, Lincoln and her group of 10 youth received national recognition for their efforts by becoming the states first nationally recognized chapter. The good news came after a detailed application, completed entirely by students of the group, passed a board review.

We are working really hard to get our group strong so that we can get others involved and encouraged to start their own chapters. I am really here to be their cheerleader, to encourage them and to teach them the advocacy skills they need to communicate their concerns effectively and respectfully, Lincoln said.

The tribes Native Youth M.O.V.E. Heroes group hopes to encourage the development of new chapters in other schools.

Many members of Native Youth M.O.V.E. Heroes are actively involved in other groups advocating on issues of voice and choice for Native youth, including the Tribal Youth Council and the Cherokee Cabinet for Children and......

12 Reasons Why Old Souls Have Such A Hard Time Finding Love "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 

1. They have a strong sense of identity.

They know who they are, which means they also know specifically what they do and do not want in a partner, what works and what doesnt. While this is fantastic in terms of being able to choose wisely, it ultimately diminishes their pool of prospects pretty significantly.

2. Left unchecked, their hyper-intuitiveness can wreck relationships.

Often prone to overthinking because of how deeply sensitive they are, their capacity to worry and make assumptions can break relationships that dont have a perfectly strong foundation.

3. Many are in the throes of twin flame relationships.

Theyre attached or are with people who are not their forever people, rather, intense connections theyre meant to learn, and rapidly expand, from.

4. They often have a greater purpose that must be attended to first  one that love would distract them from.

They usually have to accomplish quite a bit on their own before they find love this is because old souls love deeply, and completely. To be given love too soon would keep them from the other important things they are here to do.

One of the greatest mass extinctions caused by volcanic eruptions "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Note: On my timeline, scientists knew volcanic eruptions s caused one of the greatest mass extinctions in Earths history. Is this another Mandela Effect, or did the article omit other extinction phases where volcanic eruptions caused ELEs? Blessings, {~A~}

One of the greatest mass extinctions caused by volcanic eruptions

Scientists have linked global mass extinction at the Permian-Triassic boundary some 250 million years ago to an ice age caused by the activity of the first volcanism in the Siberian Traps. The research paves the way for a new vision of the Earths climate history.

The Earth has known several mass extinctions over the course of its history and one of the most important happened at the Permian-Triassic boundary 250 million years ago when over 95% of marine species disappeared. Up until now, scientists have linked this extinction to a significant rise in Earth temperatures, but researchers from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Switzerland, working alongside the University of Zurich, discovered that this extinction took place during a short ice age which preceded the global climate warming.

Its the first time that the various stages of a mass extinction have been accurately understood and that scientists have been able to assess the major role played by volcanic explosions in these climate processes. This research, which can be read in Scientific Reports, completely calls into question the scientific theories regarding these phenomena, founded on the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere, and paves the way for a new vision of the Earths climate history.

Teams of researchers led by Professor Urs Schaltegger from the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the Faculty of Science of the UNIGE and by Hugo Bucher, from the University of Zrich, have been working on absolute dating for many years. They work on determining...

Real MLs to Spend International Working Womens Day Mocking YPJ "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

MakeAnimeReal

QENDL While the revisionist pseudo-revolutionaries of the MLKP, THKP-C/MLSPB, DKP, and MKP continue selling out the revolution by arming Kurdish women against some of the most nakedly reactionary forces in the region, a few individual heroes see through this Narodnik nonsense.

Of course, we speak of Twitter MLs, the real face of organised Marxism-Leninism in the world today. Their tireless work to expose the struggle as being one free of internal contradictions, and one based entirely on uncritically cheerleading the patriarchal, bourgeois status quo supported by rival imperialist powers so as to distance themselves from Trotskyists who cheerlead their own imperialism, has cost them many martyrs, who we at Workers Spatula would like to take a moment to mourn.

[ONE MINUTE OF SILENCE FOR THE MARTYRS OF ASSADISTS IN ENGLISH-SPEAKING COUNTRIES]

The prison cells of the UK and the US are filled with the party-less forces of FDCK Twitter. And yet these brave strugglers refuse to be cowed by the CIA-backed propaganda of TKB and TKP/ML. On March 8th, they plan to emerge into the streets of every major city where English is spoken from Vancouver to Melbourne, to mock women guerrillas whose leaders rot in other NATO prisons.

Powerful windstorm batters France, killing at least 2 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Powerful windstorm batters France, killing at least 2

Severe weather, including snowfalls and hurricane-force winds, has been affecting the central-southern and south-eastern areas of the France over the past 48 hours, causing at least two fatalities. Severe weather is forecast to continue affecting the country over the next 24 hours. The storm, named Zeus, will then exit into the Mediterranean Sea and rapidly deepen as it moves toward Italy. Severe to extremely severe wind gusts are expected this evening and tonight.

This powerful windstorm was produced by rapidly deepening cyclone coming from the British Isles toward Northern France this morning. An intense sting jet has developed within the cyclone, Severe Weather Europe reports, traveling right across Brittany, NW France.

Meteo France has updated the number of departments on Orange alert to 31 this morning and urged residents to be vigilant, stay off the rooftops and secure objects that are liable to be blown away.

The departments on Orange alert, as of Monday morning, March 6, are: Cantal, Corse-du-Sud, Haute-Corse, Loire, Haute-Loire, Lozre, Puy-de-Dme, Rhne, Allier, Charente, Charente-Maritime, Cher, Corrze, Ctes-dArmor, Creuse, Finistre, Ille-et-Vilaine, Indre, Indre-et-Loire, Loire-Atlantique, Maine-et-Loire, Mayenne, Morbihan, Deux-Svres, Vende, Vienne, Haute-Vienne, Alpes-Maritimes, Dordogne, Gironde, and Var.

Last week I took a flight from California to Australia.

After a long 14 hour flight, everyone stood up and eagerly anticipated leaving the plane. Instead of getting off, we were informed that the plane would be sprayed with a non toxic insecticide.

insecticide

I quickly grabbed my thick jacket, put my hood over my head, covered my face and made sure every breath I took was filtered through the jacket. Flight attendants walked up and down the isles, spraying the luggage bins and the passengers almost directly.

I waited for about 10 minutes while they made us sit in the fumes. I heard a few people cough. When we finally got up to leave the plane, a flight attendant asked me if I was ok because I was covering my face and I said of course, just avoiding breathing this, its toxic.

He matter of factly responded its non toxic. I replied of course its toxic, everything that is an insecticide is toxic.

What I should have showed him is that flight attendants like him have gotten brain tumors and Parkinsons Disease, and sued the government for mandating use of insecticide on flights.

According to a December 2013 article from the Daily Telegraph titled Landmark legal case will probe the link between Parkinsons disease and insecticide sprays used on long-haul flights:

LONG-haul flight attendants who have been forced to spray insecticide through aircraft cabins every time they landed in Australia fear the chemicals may have given them Parkinsons disease.

The Secret to Creating Peace and Harmony, for Yourself and the World "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Thich Nhat Hanh has published nearly 100 books and is one of the best-known teachers of Zen Buddhism in the world today.

In the early 1960s, his practice of what he termed engaged Buddhism led him to create the School for Youth and Social Services to provide education, housing, and medical care for victims of war in his native home, Vietnam. In 1966, Nhat Hanh visited the United States and Europe on a peace mission and was forbidden to return home. A year later Martin Luther King Jr. nominated him for the Nobel Peace Prize.

For 34 years, his home in exile has been the monastery of Plum Village in southern France, where he continues to live with his community of Buddhist monks and nuns. In October 2016, Thy teacher, as he is affectionately known turned 90 years old.

Plum VillagePlum Village, in the south of France, where Thich Nhat Hanh lives in exile.

Nhat Hanh was interviewed in Plum Village by filmmaker, Martin Doblmeier, of Journey Films, for a documentary on forgiveness.

Martin Doblmeier: During the Vietnam War, your own people found themselves deeply divided. Talk about the lessons learned from the peace movement then.

Thich Nhat Hanh: There was a lot of suffering and people found themselves in a situation where they had become enemies of each other. So in such a situation, you have to find a way to survive and to help others survive. We had to show people the way to act properly because if you dont have peace within yourself, it is very difficult to work for peace. Our thinking was, the other person is not our enemy. Our enemies are misunderstanding, discrimination, violence, hatred, and anger. With that kind of insight, we conducted the peace movement.

Doblmeier: But over the years of war you were witness to so much suffering and tragedy. How could you not be overcome with anger?

Nhat Hanh: If you are filled with anger, you create more suffering for yourself than for the other person. When you are inhabited by the energy of anger, you want to punish, you want to destroy. That is why those who are wise do not...

Penguin swims 5,000 miles every year for reunion with the man who saved his life "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Todays most heartwarming story is brought to you from a beach in Brazil.

Its the story of a South American Magellanic penguin who swims 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.

Retired bricklayer and part time fisherman Joao Pereira de Souza, 71, who lives in an island village just outside Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, found the tiny penguin, covered in oil and close to death, lying on rocks on his local beach in 2011.

Joao cleaned the oil off the penguins feathers and fed him a daily diet of fish to build his strength. He named him Dindim.

After a week, he tried to release the penguin back into the sea. But, the bird wouldnt leave. He stayed with me for 11 months and then, just after he changed his coat with new feathers, he disappeared, Joao recalls.

And, just a few months later, Dindim was back. He spotted the fisherman on the beach one day and followed him home.

For the past five years, Dindim has spent eight months of the year with Joao and is believed to spend the rest of the time breeding off the coast of Argentina and Chile.

Its thought he swims up to 5,000 miles each year to be reunited with the man who saved his life.

Intuition Is The Highest Form Of Intelligence "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Bruce Kasanoff; Awaken

Is less about suddenly knowing the right answer and more about instinctively understanding what information is unimportant and can thus be discarded.

Gigerenzer, author of the book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious, says that he is both intuitive and rational. In my scientific work, I have hunches. I cant explain always why I think a certain path is the right way, but I need to trust it and go ahead. I also have the ability to check these hunches and find out what they are about. Thats the science part. Now, in private life, I rely on instinct. For instance, when I first met my wife, I didnt do computations. Nor did she.

Abstract:  CONTEXT: B vitamins and factors related to 1-carbon metabolism help to maintain DNA integrity and regulate gene expression and may affect cancer risk.OBJECTIVE: To investigate if 1-carbon metabolism factors are associated with onset of lung cancer.DESIGN, SETTING, AND PARTICIPANTS: The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) recruited 519,978 participants from 10 countries between 1992 and 2000, of whom 385,747 donated blood. By 2006, 899 lung cancer cases were identified and 1770 control participants were individually matched by country, sex, date of birth, and date of blood collection. Serum levels were measured for 6 factors of 1-carbon metabolism and cotinine.MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Odds ratios (ORs) of lung cancer by serum levels of 4 B vitamins (B(2), B(6), folate [B(9)], and B(12)), methionine, and homocysteine.RESULTS: Within the entire EPIC cohort, the age-standardized incidence rates of lung cancer (standardized to the world population, aged 35-79 years) were 6.6, 44.9, and 156.1 per 100,000 person-years among never, former, and current smokers for men, respectively. The corresponding incidence rates for women were 7.1, 23.9, and 100.9 per 100,000 person-years, respectively. After accounting for smoking, a lower risk for lung cancer was seen for elevated serum levels of B(6) (fourth vs first quartile OR, 0.44; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.33-0.60; P for trend

But when he parked on a nearby side street, he says the white Holden (car) of the abuser pulled up once again and the racist rant, including the n word, continued.

Another man, Bikramjit Singh, suffered similar abuse last week as he left a Papatoetoe storage facility.

A man who claimed Bikramjit was speeding yelled at him, saying: Go back to your country slow down! You know what the speed limit is here.

Bikramjit says he wasnt speeding, is a New Zealand citizen and has lived here for more than a decade.

Recycle Your Body Back to the Earth With This Mushroom Burial Suit "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Expanded Consciousness As humans, our time here on Earth is limited, and we have always revered death and held it sacred by performing certain rituals once one has passed. Many people choose to be cremated, having their remains burned to ash and then spread in a place on Earth that they loved. Others choose the more traditional route of being buried in the ground with a gravemarker. What many do not know is that the human body actually contains quite a few toxic chemicals and they can be detrimental to the Earth when we start to decompose. Upon death, all of the pesticides, flame retardants, heavy metals and a slew of other environmental toxins that weve acquired over the course of our lives get released into the Earth. Cremation doesnt help, either, as our bodies produce carcinogens like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide, sulfur oxide and even mercury if a person has had any dental work done. Read more

Herd Immunity Used for Fear and Guilt "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Jon Rappoport, Guest
Waking Times

Hail to the herd! The herd is all!

The concept of herd immunity (protection for the population) is often used by vaccine addicts as a way to push guilt at people who dont line up their children for shots.

Your unvaccinated child is a danger to my vaccinated child!

Excuse me?

Protecting children who are already vaccinated? Really?

Little Jimmy, whose parents have decided not to vaccinate him, will pass diseases on to kids who are already vaccinated? What? Oh, you mean those immunized kids arent really safe? Then why did you vaccinate them in the first place?

What actually protects people against disease, or enables them to recover from disease with no lasting ill-effects, is the strength of their immune systems.

If a person has a chronically weak immune system, he will get sick again and again, and it doesnt matter how many people around him are vaccinated against how many diseases.

The health of populations has everything to do with good nutrition, adequate sanitation, and an absence of toxic elements in the environment.

There are many doctors who know this, but they refuse to speak out, because they know theyll suffer consequences.

Vaccination, as a propaganda strategy, is used to medicalize the populationto assert that good health is fundamentally a medical matter.

It isnt.

If tomorrow, two things happened, they would change the face of health in any industrialized country:

One, millions more people buying healthy food and/or growing their own food, in yards; and in inner cities, growing food in community gardens;

And two, the courts delivering justice in the form of billion-dollar fines and long, long prison sentences to corporate employees (including CEOs) for severe and real pollution.

Note: That justice would eliminate GMO crops which rely on toxic pesticide use.

Im not spinning rainbows. Im just pointing out that, with these two changes alone, hospitals and clinics and doctors offices would empty out, and the medical cartel would finally experience vast comeuppance.

Health and life are not medical functions.

Rise With Standing Rock Native Nations March: What to know ahead of Friday's march in DC | Mic: Though the protest is born out of the Standing Rock movement and fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline, Friday's protest is a broader call for the tribal rights.

The protestors, as outlined on the Standing Rock website, are demanding a meeting between President Donald Trump and tribal leaders about the critical importance of tribal rights.

The Money Pit Mystery and Early Treasure Hunting on Oak Island "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Wu Mingren; Ancient Origins

Oak Island is located off the coast of Nova Scotia near Halifax, in the eastern part of Canada. This 140 acre island is privately owned, and is best known for its supposed buried treasure, especially at a certain spot commonly known as the Money Pit. Since its discovery around the end of the 18th century, a number of theories have been put forward to explain the nature of the legendary treasure in the Money Pit of Oak Island. In addition, many attempts to unearth the treasure have been made in the following centuries, though these have yet to meet with success. Nevertheless, efforts continue even today, with the hope that a fantastic treasure will eventually be found on the mysterious Oak Island.

The Money Pit of Oak Island is reported to have been discovered in the summer of 1795, when a teenager by the name of Daniel McGinnis came across a circular depression in the ground whilst wandering on the island. McGinnis decided to investigate the pit with a few friends, and over the next couple of days, he, along with his friends John Smith and Anthony Vaughan, began to dig a hole.

Vitamin D deficiency leads to loss of Paneth cell defensins. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Physiol. 2016 ;7:498. Epub 2016 Nov 15. PMID: 27895587 Abstract Title:  Vitamin D Signaling through Induction of Paneth Cell Defensins Maintains Gut Microbiota and Improves Metabolic Disorders and Hepatic Steatosis in Animal Models. Abstract:  Metabolic syndrome (MetS), characterized as obesity, insulin resistance, and non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (NAFLD), is associated with vitamin D insufficiency/deficiency in epidemiological studies, while the underlying mechanism is poorly addressed. On the other hand, disorder of gut microbiota, namely dysbiosis, is known to cause MetS and NAFLD. It is also known that systemic inflammation blocks insulin signaling pathways, leading to insulin resistance and glucose intolerance, which are the driving force for hepatic steatosis. Vitamin D receptor (VDR) is highly expressed in the ileum of the small intestine, which prompted us to test a hypothesis that vitamin D signaling may determine the enterotype of gut microbiota through regulating the intestinal interface. Here, we demonstrate that high-fat-diet feeding (HFD) is necessary but not sufficient, while additional vitamin D deficiency (VDD) as a second hit is needed, to induce robust insulin resistance and fatty liver. Under the two hits (HFD+VDD), the Paneth cell-specific alpha-defensins including-defensin 5 (DEFA5), MMP7 which activates the pro-defensins, as well as tight junction genes, and MUC2 are all suppressed in the ileum, resulting in mucosal collapse, increased gut permeability, dysbiosis, endotoxemia, systemic inflammation which underlie insulin resistance and hepatic steatosis.Moreover, under the vitamin D deficient high fat feeding (HFD+VDD), Helicobacter hepaticus, a known murine hepatic-pathogen, is substantially amplified in the ileum, while Akkermansia muciniphila, a beneficial symbiotic, is diminished. Likewise, the VD receptor (VDR) knockout mice exhibit similar phenotypes, showing down regulation of alpha-defensins and MMP7 in the ileum, increased Helicobacter hepaticus and suppressed Akkermansia muciniphila. Remarkably, oral administration of DEFA5 restored eubiosys, showing suppression of Helicobacter hepaticus and increase of Akkermansia muciniphila in association with resolving metabolic disorders and fatty liver in the HFD+VDD mice. An in vitro analysis showed that DEFA5 peptide could directly suppress Helicobacter hepaticus. Thus, the results of this study reveal critical roles of a vitamin D/VDR axis in optimal expression of defensins and tightjunction genes in support of intestinal integrity and eubiosis to suppress NAFLD and metabolic disorders.

USA: Highest Vaccination Rate in the World Has the Worst Health "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

That worst health label includes a ranking of 34th in the world with infant mortality.

In other words, the USA has the 34th worst infant survival with its highest rate of vaccinations. Some are directly from multiple vaccinations administered.

But the USA leads the world in infant vaccinations, those administered during the first year after their births 26 vaccinations during that time.

The only vaccination I recall receiving during early childhood, circa 1948, was the smallpox vaccine, the one that left a circle of shallow pockmarks on the upper arm, a non-ink tattoo that proved you had received that vaccine.

FBI Concedes It May Never Identify Which Trump Staffer Didnt Consult With Russians During Election "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Trump satire

In a frank admission about its investigation, the FBI says it may never uncover the one guy within the Trump campaign team who didnt meet with the Russians during the election.

Speculation has been rife that a Trump aide possibly someone senior had his days mixed up and missed his briefing with the Kremlin. But an FBI spokesperson said that while there was a lot of circumstantial evidence, it was difficult to find hard evidence.

There are a lot of theories, a lot of opinions. But we need more than that, as you know, he said.

So while its possible that someone within Trumps team didnt meet with the Putin administration, we simply may never know who that was, or if indeed, its actually the case at all.

In Yepem, meals are composed of fish, coconuts, bananas and starchy roots like cassava, taro and sago. Residents harvest shrimp at the nearby Yomot streamlet with nets and fishing poles. The village is dotted with jeuws, or traditional Asmat houses. The structures have high vaulted ceilings held up by poles planted in the earth. Mangi-mangi wood and sago leaves top the roofs. One jeuw is set aside as the town carving studio. The place is filled with carvers and weavers. There is even a little child learning from his dad. The leader of this initiative, Paskalis Wakat, explains that the Asmat people have a philosophy that they must be one with god, the ancestral spirits and the forest. Yepem residents young and old have a deep respect for the forest and see the duty of preserving the environment as one with respecting god and their ancestors. Kaspar Mamnak, a member of the Asmat Traditional Peoples Foundation (LMAA) says locals are not allowed to debark trees.

51HIrTy5vfLOn the 7th of March 1967, Alice Babette Toklas, a longtime lover, secretary, editor, cook, and companion of the writer Gertrude Stein, died in Paris, France. An American of Polish descent, Toklas met Stein in Paris on the 8th of September 1907, and fell in love with her. The feeling was mutual, and so the pair decided to share their life together. Their relationship was very much Yin-Yang, as they complemented each other in many ways. Toklas remained a background figure in this relationship, supporting Stein in her writing career. But the later did not take it for granted, and acknowledged her partner by, for example, publishing her 1933 memoirs under the perverse title The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas.

chain A New Mutable Blockchain That We All Need! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/2mfPW8z

A group of researchers have recently published a paper that explored the idea of creating mutable proof-of-work (PoW) blockchains. They presented chain, a novel mutable blockchain, that promotes modification of blockchains history. By definition, a blockchain represents an immutable, decentralized data structure that record a chain of events, such as financial transactions in case of a cryptocurrency system. Even though the concept of mutable history of events is seemingly controversial, the authors of the paper proved that chain doesnt undermine security guarantees provided by immutable blockchains. Technically speaking, all mutations in the chain system are determined by fiat, controlled via consensus and are validated in the same manner as immutable blockchain transactions.

On the other hand, chain offers solutions to several problems of immutable blockchains including vulnerable smart contract patching and eliminating abusive content from the records of the blockchain. Moreover, it opens the door to new blockchain based applications that cannot be built using immutable blockchains. For example, governments and companies could now keep registers of citizens and customers, while preserving their legislative rights to delete their records whenever they choose to do so. Banks can also choose to consolidate cryptocurrency with traditional payments, which is almost impossible to achieve successfully without being able to reverse transactions.

uchain.jpeg

Why do we need mutable blockchains?

Although immutability of blockchains is a pivotal feature for security guarantees, this very same property can represent a hurdle to the future of this innovative technology. For example, external events can occasionally annul existing smart contracts and transactions already recorded on the blockchain. Moreover, data stored on the blockchain can be illegal to distribute. For example, bitcoins blockchain is already storing child pornography images, leaked cryptographic keys and wikileaks files. On the other hand, smart contracts can have flaws and vulnerabilities similarly to any other program type, yet immutability prevents patching of s...

The celestial body of Jordan Kaseys exhibition, Exoplanet, refers to a planet that exists outside our solar system. Kaseys compellingly odd paintings at Nicelle Beauchene gallery obviously originate from a realm outside the familiar body of artworks currently orbiting among the downtown galleries.

Kasey is a paradoxical painter. The five large canvases commanding the gallery space are simultaneously overwhelming and confidential, representational but formally abstract. Though lacking juicy expressionistic brushwork, the works vibrate with quietly restrained emotion. Her thick figures, lit with mysterious, colored light, have the monumentality of Picassos Neo-classical period, without the earth tones, and are as ponderous as whales gliding through the ocean.

Senate Indian Committee Democrats Call on Trump to Protect the White House Tribal Nations Conference & Council on Native American Affairs "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Vice Chair of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs Tom Udall D New Mexico

Published March 6, 2017

 
WASHINGTON  Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall, vice chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian affairs, and Senators Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Al Franken (D-Minn.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) and Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) called on President Trump to demonstrate a commitment to working with Tribes by retaining the White House Tribal Nations Conference and the White House Council on Native American Affairs. These institutions are instrumental in promoting government-to-government collaboration between the executive branch and Tribes and ensuring the White House and executive agencies are participating in meaningful consultation with Tribal leaders and upholding trust and treaty obligations.
 
The White House Tribal Nations Conference is an annual summit that brings cabinet-level and and senior members of the executive branch together with Tribal leaders to discuss the best ways in which the federal government can fulfill its trust and treaty responsibilities. In a letter to the president, the senators wrote, The Federal Government has a unique nation-to-nation relationship with American Indian and Alaska Native tribes grounded in the United States Constitution, treaties, federal statutes, and Supreme Court decisions. Tribal consultation is the bedrock on which that nation-to-nation relationship is built and, for eight years, the Tribal Nations Conference has served as a signature example of the Executive Branchs efforts to improve consultation.

Many Are Mulling Over the Idea of Retiring on Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin has surpassed the value of gold for the first time. In parallel, Bitcoins deflationary properties are becoming more relevant as the specter of inflation starts lurking again in the U.S. and the Euro area. As a result, for many, the thought of investing their retirement savings in bitcoins is starting to gain traction.

Planning to Retire on Bitcoin

Many are Mulling over the Idea of Retiring on BitcoinThe idea of retiring on Bitcoin is not new. For years, users in forums related to the cryptocurrency have been discussing this topic.

The question of how many bitcoins would be required to retire was often posted in Bitcoin forums. For example, in April 2014, Bitcoin forum user Alley asked, How many bitcoins do I need to retire in 20 years? To which, in turn, user Tron replied that to be safe two bitcoins would be required.

Now, because of the stellar performance of the cryptocurrency, many individuals are again becoming tempted to explore the idea of using bitcoins for retirement purposes.

In this regard, Reddit user Markb prepared a series of calculations to figure out how many bitcoins you would need to retire. For example, one of Markbs assumptions is: The price of bitcoin doubles every year and tops out at $1 million, and you need $32k to live on. You can see Markbs calculations here.

Of course, like with any retirement investment plan, you must first study the basics of money and, in this case, Bitcoin, and diversify your retirement savings.

During the dawn of the masternodes, the Dash cryptocurrency experienced a lot of ups and downs on its shares in the market over the years. It goes up once to US$15 but the lowest downfall was US$5.

Anxiety Of Chinese Miners

Week earlier, theres a lot of speculations and debates about the block size which being brought to the table. There are delays on the Segwit or Segregated witness that has been proposed several months ago to support miners in 95% which took already a quarter.

The pseudonym shaolinfry has been raising new process to activate without the approval of the miner. The process though is a bit complicated and debatable on Bitcoin community.

The Soft Fork - User Activated

Shaolinfry pseudonym previous week appear to reveal the so called going in to user-activated activation of soft-fork on mailing list of BTC developers. The contributor of this concept believes that there are a lot of issues with Segwit in that can be profound with majority hashpower selections.

Both technical and political are the issues being tossed up by the author on miner activation by putting the choices on miners hand. The supermajority hash a problem on power signaling that plays unpleasant role to miners attention and that becomes unwittingly political according to him.

He added that user-activated soft fork or UASF is the solution which can be thought as emergent consensus or flag day activation.

He also explained that the flag day activation is the definite time in the future where nodes begun to have enforcement. The process should have a longer lead moment compare to a hash power triggered during activation, in that case these gives a lot of advantages and good options that has been offered.

Rob Hubbard presides over the Haus der Kunst. (images 1 and 2 via Wikimedia)

In what may be the weirdest art story in well, a while, Scientologists have apparently infiltrated the Haus der Kunst, a leading contemporary art museum in Munich. According to Deutsche Welle (DW), Bavarias domestic intelligence agency  which is called the Verfassungsschutz, or Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution  is now investigating the situation.

The murky story starts with an accountant who began working freelance for the museum in 1995. Over the past two decades, the man acquired more responsibility at the institution, becoming an external personnel manager (still not a full-time employee) with the power to hire people and create shift plans. But some say he abused his power by pressuring staff to join the Church of Scientology and pushing his beliefs in other ways. DW reports on a series of articles in the German-language Sddeutsche Zeitung that includes leaked internal complaints from employees alleging that the man wielded great psychological pressure and that the ideology flows directly into his work. One claims the man invited three board members to a Scientology center. Rumors of the S...

A Crowd-Sourced Website Helps Preserve Indigenous Cultures "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Cultural Codexs website (screenshot via culturalcodex.com)

A new online publishing platform is working to preserve and share knowledge of the cultures and languages of indigenous communities. Cultural Codex, developed by software company Dadavan Systems, invites anyone to contribute stories and experiences that record aspects of indigenous culture they want to celebrate, through personalized galleries that support text, video, photographs, and sound recordings. Currently in its early stages, the website features just a few dozen examples so far, but its creators envision archivists, artists, curators, museums, cultural and language centers, and many others producing online exhibitions and libraries that feature everything from archival material to personal reflections. Like those ancient, handwritten books from which the project takes its name, the growing resource will come together as a collaborative effort.

Among the posts available now is a fun visual explainer by the Millbrook Cultural and Heritage Centre on how to build a wigwam. Photographs and videos of a team tying together pieces of the shelter, as well as an artist etching decorations on birch bark, bring you straight to the action, taught by those who are well-acquainted with the traditional construction methods. Another contributor has posted a video of the Anishinaabe painter Peter Migwans speaking with schoolchildren, while another shared recordings of himself speaking basic phrases in Mikmaq, from good morning to I love you.

Dadavan has been collaborating with indigenous communities across Canada since 2001 to create educational software. For the last three or four years,...

Bitcoin To $2,000? Winklevoss Bitcoin ETF Decision Due This Week "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We Are Change

From Taki Tsaklanos: Bitcoin is a totally different asset type. Traditional analysis methods do not applying when trying to forecast the price of bitcoin. Thats why we apply a more fundamental approach in this article in order to come up with a bitcoin price forecast for 2017.

Article via Investing Haven

How not to forecast the future price of bitcoin

Most readers would turn to the cryptocurrency blogosphere where they will read ultra bullish bitcoin price forecasts for 2017 similar to this one from Coindesk. The issue with this approach is that those sites only feature bitcoin enthusiasts and entrepreneurs, so they offer a very biased view.

Traditional financial media, on the other hand, have their classic story telling format. That is not a useful approach neither for investors. For instance, CNBC looked at the ongoing stream of articles that compare bitcoin with gold, and concluded that the comparison is perhaps a positive signal that bitcoin is being commoditized. But bitcoin is not a commodity, while gold has been a commodity for thousands of years. That obviously does not tell anything about the future price of bitcoin.

Fortune.com explained how demand for safe haven assets have fallen since the elections on a stronger dollar, signs of future interest rate hikes, and potentially business-friendly policies that may arise from the Trump administration. Those potential regulatory changes would raise the chances of higher-yielding stocks. That also is not useful as input for a bitcoin price forecast.

The most interesting headline comes from CNBC: Bitcoin predicted to rise 165% to $2,000 in 2017 driven by Trumps spending binge and dollar rally.

There is obviously no correlation between the bitcoin price and the dollar or any other regular asset. Large investors simply dont pull money out of currencies, stocks or gold in order to buy bitcoins.

A legitimate bitcoin price forecast for 2017

We believe that a combination of price analysis and fundamental analysis is the most appropriate way to come up with a legitimate bitcoin forecast.

Fundamentally, the bitcoin usage data look gr...

A Conservator Talks About the Challenges of Preserving Plastic in Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Amy Brener, Shanty (2014) in Greater New York, MoMA PS1, 201516 (photo by Benjamin Sutton for Hyperallergic)

I associate plastics with superfluous packaging, ugly toys, and being bad for the environment. Generally serving as a discardable layer of some consumable good, plastic does not appear to be an especially valuable material, and yet, much as its invaded most every daily product, it has also made its way into priceless works of art.

On Wednesday, Thea van Oosten, a Judith Praska Distinguished Visiting Professor in Conservation at New York Universitys Institute of Fine Arts, will give a talk on the obstacles in conserving plastic art objects in museum collections. Now around for a little over a century, plastic is regularly built into sculptures, textiles, and design objects. And while the material is notorious for not decomposing easily and being environmentally noxious, plastic is actually difficult to preserve, getting sticky and even smelly over time. In her talk Plastics in Modern and Contemporary Art: Meant to Last Forever? van Oosten, who specializes in the conservation of modern and contemporary art and design, will ask and attempt to answer: How can a polymer scientist help conservators to keep for longer what is bound to break and crumble?

Ready for the next optical illusion that will drive you crazy? This may seem like a simple photo of strawberries, but guess what? There isnt one red pixel in the entire image. Cant see it? Believe us, its true.

Kitaoka specializes in optical illusions and here, hes showing how our eye compensates for what it believes the colors should be when filtered through a different light.

Alongside Yvonne Rainer and Simone Forti, Trisha Brown is one of the seminal figures of avant-garde dance and movement, with a career spanning almost 60 years. She studied with postmodern dance pioneer Anna Halprin in the early 1960s before becoming a founding member of the Judson Dance Theater in 1962, eventually forming her own company in 1970. Browns choreography developed from the modern dance tradition, while at the same time challenging its austerity, leaving the confines of the theater for site-specific works on rooftops or aboard rafts floating in bodies if water.

In recognition of Browns influential role, the Center for the Art of Performance (CAP) at UCLA  along with the Broad, the Getty, LACMA, and Hauser & Wirth has organized In Plain Site, a weeklong series of performances, talks, and events.

Grassley is pushing back and demanding the FBI provide information pertaining to its use of the British spy, whose salacious allegations have infuriated Trump and his allies.

The idea that the FBI and associates of the Clinton campaign would pay Mr. Steele to investigate the Republican nominee for President in the run-up to the election raises further questions about the FBIs independence from politics, as well as the Obama administrations use of law enforcement and intelligence agencies for political ends, Grassley wrote.

It is additionally troubling that the FBI reportedly agreed to such an arrangement given that, in January of 2017, then-Director Clapper issued a statement stating that the [intelligence community] has not made any judgment that the information in this document is reliable, and we did not rely upon it in any way for our conclusions.

In his letter, Grassley asks for all records regarding Steeles investigation, details of the agreement between the FBI and Steele, the FBIs policies for using outside investigators, and whether the bureau has relied on any of the information Steele has provided in seeking warrants.

Artist Transforms Food into Striking Sculptures, Eats His Work Afterwards "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

food carving

Have you ever been scolded for playing with your food? If so, forget what you were told; Artist Gaku has made one of the best arguments for using food to produce awe-inspiringand edibleworks of art. His food carving follows the Japanese tradition of mukimono, which is the art of decorative garnishes. Typically, carrots, daikon, or eggplant are transformed into flowers and fansbut not when Gaku gets his hands on them. Instead, he cuts intricate patterns into the soft flesh of fruits and vegetables. The results are modern with an architectural look and feel.

Gakus practice is a race against time. If youve ever peeled an apple, you know how quickly it oxidizes; within minutes, it starts to discolor. Gaku works at lightning speed with an X-Acto-style knife to ensure that his sculptures stay freshnotice how the apples never appear brown.

Once hes done sculpting his contemporary mukimono, Gaku does the next logical thinghe eats them. Except, he says, for the banana peel.

Abstract:  BACKGROUND: When used as an adjunctive with antipsychotics, certain vitamins and minerals may be effective for improving symptomatic outcomes of schizophrenia, by restoring nutritional deficits, reducing oxidative stress, or modulating neurological pathways.METHOD: We conducted a systematic review of all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) reporting effects of vitamin and/or mineral supplements on psychiatric symptoms in people with schizophrenia. Random-effects meta-analyses were used to calculate the standardized mean difference between nutrient and placebo treatments.RESULTS: An electronic database search in July 2016 identified 18 eligible RCTs, with outcome data for 832 patients. Pooled effects showed that vitamin B supplementation (including B6, B8 and B12) reduced psychiatric symptoms significantly more than control conditions [g = 0.508, 95% confidence interval (CI) 0.01-1.01, p = 0.047, I 2 = 72.3%]. Similar effects were observed among vitamin B RCTs which used intention-to-treat analyses (g = 0.734, 95% CI 0.00-1.49, p = 0.051). However, no effects of B vitamins were observed in individual domains of positive and negative symptoms (both p>0.1). Meta-regression analyses showed that shorter illness duration was associated with greater vitamin B effectiveness (p = 0.001). There were no overall effects from antioxidant vitamins, inositol or dietary minerals on psychiatric symptoms.CONCLUSIONS: There is preliminary evidence that certain vitamin and mineral supplements may reduce psychiatric symptoms in some people with schizophrenia. Further research is needed to examine how the benefits of supplementation relate to nutrient deficits and the impact upon underlying neurobiological pathways, in order to establish optimal nutrient formulations for improving clinical outcomes in this population. Future studies should also explore the effects of combining beneficial nutrients within multi-nutrient formulas.

Vitamin B supplementation was effective in reducing serum homocysteine levels. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Geriatr Psychiatry Neurol. 2017 Jan ;30(1):50-59. Epub 2016 Oct 17. PMID: 28248558 Abstract Title:  Efficacy of Vitamin B Supplementation on Cognition in Elderly Patients With Cognitive-Related Diseases. Abstract:  Increase in serum homocysteine is shown to be a potential risk factor for cognitive impairment. Evidence suggests that vitamin B supplementation may reduce cognitive decline by lowering the homocysteine levels. The current meta-analysis evaluated the efficacy of folic acid along with vitamin B12 and/or B6 in lowering homocysteine, thereby attenuating cognitive decline in elderly patients with Alzheimer disease or dementia. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing the efficacy of folate and B vitamin supplementation in patients with cognitive decline secondary to Alzheimer disease or dementia were identified using the keywords,"homocysteine, hyper-homocysteinemia, B vitamin, vitamin B6, B12, folic acid, cognitive, Alzheimer's disease, and dementia."The outcome measures analyzed were the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) score and serum homocysteine. Of the 77 studies identified, 4 RCTs were included in the current meta-analysis. The baseline characteristics, age, and gender distribution of patients among the 2 groups (supplement vs placebo) were comparable. The results reveal that the intervention group achieved significantly greater reduction in homocysteine levels than the control (pooled difference in means = -3.625, 95% confidence interval [CI] = -5.642 to -1.608, P

The Messy, DIY Aesthetic of the Spring/Break Art Show "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

From the Deferred Vision booth, curated by Fintan Boyle and Matt Freedman (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

One of my favorite art fairs is Spring/Break, since it gives curators and art lovers of all types the opportunity to present displays that celebrate the DIY and quirky energy of the citys art scene. While other fairs appear to prune and primp their art for maximum market efficiency, Spring/Break takes a step back and allows curators and artists to let their freak flags fly.

This year the fair took over the former offices of Cond Nast in Times Square. The site is a strange setting because of the corporate trappings that displays have to negotiate, hide, or highlight. The theme is Black Mirror, and as youd expect, many artists and curators are preoccupied with the current state of affairs in the US. Katharine Mulherins incisive show American/Woman was particularly nice to see, since it riffs on so many symbols of American nationalism, fixating most notably on the US flag. Joe Nanashes contribution to the booth is especially satisfying, as the artist pulled out the white MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN slogan from one of Trumps signature red caps. Theres a conceptual satisfaction in imagining the artist confronting this symbol of hate on artistic terms and choosing to erase it.

Another distinctly American flag  that of the traitorous Confederacy  is the subject of Valery Jung Estabrooks elaborate installation Hometown Hero (Chink). Grappling with her childhood growing up Asian American in southwestern Virginia, Estabrooks display is affectionate but alienating, capturing the strange nostalgia she must feel towards something that has become a ubiquitous symbol of hate throughout large parts of this country.

Ben Sistos strange and thoroughly amazing Museum of Who Let Who Let the Dogs Out Out? is the other side of coin, representing the fact that art marches on, removed from the current state of affairs and somewhat in...

Company highly regrets spilling of 600 litres; initial reports said the amount was 1,500 litres

By Rhianna Schmunk, CBC News, March 5, 2017

Emergency crews are responding to a diesel spill at a fish farm near the northern tip of Vancouver Island.

Early Sunday officials said at least 1,500 litres of diesel overflowed from the Burdwood Fish Farm in Echo Bay, B.C., northeast of Port McNeill.

The company that owns the site, Cermaq Canada, issued a statement later on Sunday that the amount of diesel spilled was closer to 600 litres.

Farm crews reported the smell of diesel to Emergency Management B.C. just before 5 a.m. PT, according to an official report.

Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) says the spill was caused by a diesel pump that was left on overnight.

Shortly after 2 p.m., Courtney Bransfield, emergency program co-ordinator for the Mount Waddington Regional District, said all the recoverable diesel had been contained to the farms fish pens and absorbents to soak up the spill were in place.

Cermaq highly regrets this incident...

[EditorsNote: Simply put, things can to hell in a hand basket very quickly following a disaster. The widespread breakdown of the social order leads to looting in disaster prone areas which leads to the importance of being able to defend ones home, family and their preps during a disaster breakdown. Because home defense is such an important consideration, it is important to familiarize yourself with the best firearms and ammunition choices out there. Jeremiah Johnson has been relentless in writing information on this subject and brings up another well informed article on this ammunition choice.]

This week, we are focusing on the .45 ACP a worthy cartridge with a long and unique history, and it is also worth your consideration with regard to home defense and survival, for a number of reasons well outline here today.  So, without further adieu, lets get started!

The History of the .45 ACP Cartridge

I want to discuss the .45 ACP cartridge.  This information is worthwhile and the cartridge itself has a great deal of history behind it.  In 1898 the Spanish-American War (characterized by Teddy Roosevelt and his Rough Riders) came to a close, but the Philippine insurrection did not.  The Moros (Philippine islanders) were able to take a hit from the .38 handguns and the .30 Krag rifle the Army had in serviceand keep coming.  They could not, however, soak up the .45 Long Colts and the 12-gauge buckshot used from personally-owned Colts and Winchesters.  Yes, back then, many could carry their own choice of weapons.

Two officers were crucial in determining the choice back in 1904.  At the behest of Brigadier General William Crozier (appointed Chief of Army Ordnance in 1901, a new position created by President Theodore Roosevelt), a board was formed comprised of two men.  Colonel John T. Thompson (Ordnance) and Colonel Louis A. LaGarde (Medical Corps) were tasked with findin...

Millennials should stop complaining and get themselves a better paying job if they want to afford to live in a more comfortable make of car according to a Liberal Party candidate for preselection in an upcoming by-election.

Find yourself a good job that pays good money and you could upgrade from a Datsun 180b coupe to a 1965 Holden EH station wagon with room to stretch your legs right out, said cafe owner Rick Von Sloneker who is campaigning for endorsement as the candidate for the state seat of Manly.

Government Spooks Can Use The Mic And Camera On Trumps Phone Even When He Thinks It Is Turned Off

By Michael Snyder

Trump Speaking With Putin In The Oval Office - Public DomainAfter reading this article you might not ever view your electronic devices the same way again.  Last year, Hollywood released a biographical political thriller based on the life of Edward Snowden that had one particularly creepy scene.  In that scene, a government spook used a program to remotely activate the microphone and camera on a laptop, and by doing so he was able to watch a woman as she got undressed.  Sadly, as you will see below, this kind of thing is happening constantly.  Any digital device can potentially be accessed and used to spy on you even if it appears to be turned off.  And this is why Donald Trump needs to be so careful right now, because the intelligence community wants to take him down and they can literally use any digital device in his possession to try to gather dirt on him.  We have a deep state that is absolutely obsessed with watching, tracking and monitoring the American people, and something desperately needs to be done about this unconstitutional surveillance.  Now that Trump has become greatly upset about how the government was tapping into his phone calls, maybe something will finally get accomplished.

Champion will also talk  about growing up in Roswell, New Mexico, where "a whole circle of people... told [him] some stories that just seemed at the time too fantastic to be true and yet they absolutely were." It was in Roswell where Champion met a mortician who confirmed wreckage and small bodies were found in 1947 and brought to the base hospital, where the mortician's girlfriend worked as a nurse. Her description of the bodies matches what we've come to understand are grey aliens!

Champion will outline details of a war between the corporate government and the people. The weapon of choice used against the people is codified law, Champion explained, tracing it to the Code of Hammurabi which he suggested may have had extraterrestrial origins. According to Champion, in its ancient past Earth was visited by otherworldly beings who ultimately fathered "a secret society of ruthless merchant bankers and big businessmen totally against humanity and bent on complete world domination." Their goal is to abolish the sovereignty of all nations and establish one centralized New World Order to rule over all! All this and much more on the MnRTV Live Show!

A Little Yet Profound Text That Will Inspire You to Start Living to Your Fullest Potential "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

BY SOFO ARCHON

man-sunset

There are so many inspirational texts that you can find online that will superficially touch your minds but wont penetrate to the core of your being and inspire you to actually take action in order to create a better life for yourself.

The following text, written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer, is unlike any of those. This text is a unique piece of written art that speaks directly to the heart and can move you to make concrete change so as to discover your bliss and start living to your fullest potential. Read it and youll understand exactly what I mean.

The Invitation

It doesnt interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing.

It doesnt interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dreams, for the adventure of being alive.

It doesnt interest me what planets are squaring with your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by lifes betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it, or fade it or fix it. I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or even your own; if you can dance with the wilderness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, be realistic, or to remember the limitations of being a human.

It doesnt interest me if the story youre telling me is true. I want to know if you can risk disappointing another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. I want to know if you can be faithless and therefore be trustworthy. I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty every day, and if you can source your life from its presence. I want to know if you can live with failure, your and mine, and still stand on the edge of a lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, YES.

It doesnt interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up afte...

The endocannabinoid system might influence the generation of dream experiences. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  CNS Neurol Disord Drug Targets. 2017 Feb 23. Epub 2017 Feb 23. PMID: 28240187 Abstract Title:  The endocannabinoid system modulating levels of consciousness, emotions and likely dream contents. Abstract:  Cannabinoids are derivatives that are either compounds occurring naturally in the plant, Cannabis sativa or synthetic analogs of these molecules. The first and most widely investigated of the cannabinoids is9-tetrahydrocannabinol (9-THC), which is the main psychotropic constituent of cannabis and undergoes significant binding to cannabinoid receptors. These cannabinoid receptors are seven-transmembrane receptors that received their name from the fact that they respond to cannabinoid compounds, including 9-THC. The cannabinoid receptors have been described in rat, human and mouse brains and they have been named as the CB1 and CB2 cannabinoid receptors. Later, an endogenous molecule that exerts pharmacological effects similar to those described by 9-THC and binds to the cannabinoid receptors was discovered. This molecule, named anandamide, was the first of five endogenous cannabinoid receptor agonists described to date in the mammalian brain and other tissues. Of these endogenous cannabinoids or endocannabinoids, the most thoroughly investigated to date have been anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG). Over the years, a significant number of articles have been published in the field of endogenous cannabinoids, suggesting a modulatory profile in multiple neurobiological roles of endocannabinoids. The general consensus accepts that the endogenous cannabinoid system includes natural ligands (such as anandamide and 2-AG), receptors (CB1 and CB2), and the main enzymes responsible for the hydrolysis of anandamide and 2-AG (fatty acid amide hydrolase [FAAH] and monoacylglycerol lipase [MAGL], respectively) as well as the anandamide membrane transporter (AMT). To date, diverse pieces of evidence have shown that the endocannabinoid system controls multiple functions such as feeding, pain, learning and memory and has been linked with various diseases, such as Parkinsons disease. Among the modulatory properties of the endocannabinoid system, current data indicate thatthe sleep-wake cycle is under the influence of endocannabinoids since the blocking of the CB1 cannabinoid receptor or the pharmacological inhibition of FAAH activity promotes wakefulness whereas the obstruction of AMT function enhances sleep. However, no solid evidence is available regarding the role of the endocannabinoid system in an unquestionable emotional component of the sleep: Dream activity. Since dreaming is a mental activity that occurs during sleep (characterized by emotions, sensory perceptions, and bizarre components) and the endocannabinoid system modulates neurobiological processes involving consciousn...

Cherokee Nation Citizens May Have Opportunity to Vote on Same-sex Marriage in June Election "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

 

Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilor David Walkingstick wants to Cherokee Nation citizens vote on same-sex marriage in June election.

Published March 6, 2017

TAHLEQUAH The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council may vote to put same-sex marriage on the ballot in the nations June election. The issue of same-sex marriage arose last December when Cherokee Nation Attorney General Todd Hembree issued a legal opinion that declared tribal statutes that prohibit gay marriage to be unconstitutional.

His opinion went further in that it said the Cherokee Nation cannot refuse to issue a marriage license or recognize a marriage based on sexual orientation.

The idea that one persons legal opinion did not sit well with some members of the Tribal Council. The issue was brought up at the February 22nd meeting of the Cherokee Nations Rules Committee

We want our citizens to express their opinion on this rather than the executive branch expressing their opinion. Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilor, David Walkingstick said during last months Rules Committee meeting in regards to the tribes Attorney General, Todd Hembrees opinion on same-sex marriage.

When we have your [AG] office come in demand, or make an opinion, one way or another when it is none of our [governments] business. Walkingstick said. Since it has been opened up for a discussion, it is our duty as a legislative body to put it to the vote of the people.

Id be curious to know how many people have had constituents ask, Can we vote on this? Janees Taylor, Cherokee Nation Tribal Councilor, asked during the committees discussion.

By a show of hands eight of the 16 councilors present raised their hands. Councilors Walkingstick, Taylor, Buel Anglen, Don Garvin, Jack Baker, Shawn Crittenden, Dick Lay, and Rules Committee chair, Joe Byrd responded with raised hands to Taylors question. Taylor and Byrd are up for re-election this summer on which the CNs definition of marriage could potential share the ballot with them in June 3rds general election.

CNN Loses FCC License After Trump Declares Them Fake News "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

cnn-trump

WASHINGTON, D.C.  

President Donald Trump has rung the death toll for the Cable News Network. According to recently filed documents, the once mega-giant news channel will be losing their FCC licenses, forcing them to stop broadcast on April 1. The blow comes after Trump declared the company fake news, and blacklisted them from attending White House press conferences.

CNN is the worst network on television today, and nothing they say about me is true, said President Trump. The only network worth watching is Fox News. They are true. They say true things, and they say the best things. CNN is the worst, and everything they say is fake news.

After Trump declared the channel to be fake news, their ratings plummeted to the lowest in cable television history, with only around 100 to 150 people even tuning into the channel on a daily basis.

We are saddened that Trump has chosen our network to the be the scapegoat for his War on Truth, said CNN head Carl Nelson. Because of his lies about our network, we have lost our licenses, and lost our ability to broadcast. Effective April 1st, we will no longer be on the air.

Nelson says they are trying to convince the FCC that they should be allowed to continue broadcasting, but the FCC says that they are not interested in listening to any fake news, either.

President Trump has informed us that CNN should not be listened to, so were not going to, said FCC chairman Joel Winters. Were a government agency. We do what were told. Im not losing my job over this shit.

CERNs Large Hadron Collider Gets New Heart, Radioactive Contamination In France "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


http://undergroundworldnews.com
The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment is one of the four main experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) the worlds largest particle accelerator, housed underground near the France-Switzerland border near Geneva. The experiment, which consists of a roughly 69 feet long and a 50 feet wide detector located 300 feet below the ground, was crucial in the discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012.

This week, the experiment was given a major upgrade one that scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) likened to an open-heart surgery. On Thursday, engineers at CERN finished the installation of a new pixel tracker a detector that is a key part of CMS particle tracking system.

The heart of the CMS experiment is the pixel detector, the innermost instrument in the very heart of the CMS apparatus, the very point where new particles, such as the Higgs boson, are produced by the energy of the proton proton collisions of the LHC accelerator, CERN explained in a press release. With thousands of silicon sensors, the new Pixel Tracker is now being upgraded to improve the particle-tracking capabilities of CMS.

The upgrade would allow the detector to record over 120 million pixels at 40 million frames per second.

Are You Familiar with the Health Benefits of Vitamin K? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Vitamin K nutrition infographic with medical and food icons: diet healthy food and wellbeing concept

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

Vitamin K2 is a ghost vitamin. It doesnt get much press even though its involved with some very important metabolic functions in the human body. There are two types of this vitamin that are well known and understood: K1 and K2, and K2 subdivides further. Vitamin K3 has garnered very little analysis so far and wont be brought up anymore in this article.

Both K1 (phylloquinone) and K2 (menaquinone) are similar in their basic function of binding proteins to calcium, but for different reasons. The liver uses K1 mostly to activate proteins that are capable of binding for the purpose of coagulation in the blood as needed for blood clotting upon bleeding.

Vitamin K was discovered in 1929 Germany by observing its coagulation factor for clotting. They called the newly discovered vitamin Koagulationsvitamin. That may be one of the most straightforward and clear vitamin functions in a label well ever see. Obviously thats where the K comes from.

Though using similar biochemical processes, K2 mostly activates proteins that regulate where calcium ends up in the body, which may be an even more important issue for heart health than has been publicized.

Some studies have shown cross-over functions of the K1 and K2 aspects of vitamin K. But while K1 can even reverse arterial calcification somewhat and K2 can assist blood clotting actions, they both function primarily as mentioned in the earlier paragraph.

The Mostly Unknown Virtues of Vitamin K

There are many who take in too much calcium supplementation. A small percentage of calcium is involved with other biochemical functions, but the bulk of it goes into bone matter if that calcium has helpers. If not, where does it go? It remains in the blood, creating strong chances for arterial calcification and calcium deposits in heart valves.

From a paper that examines different aspects of arterial calcification, Vascular Calcification: Pathobiology of a Multifaceted Disease, published June 2, 2008 in the journal Circulation, we have this excerpt from that papers concluding s...

Prepare Yourself for Emergency Plumbing Situations "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Every homeowner has experienced a plumbing emergency at least once. Although we are familiar with common plumbing issues, such as leaky faucets and poor water pressure, we cant handle plumbing emergencies the same way. That is completely normal because as homeowners, we simply dont have enough experience or training to handle that kind of pressure and complexity of the situation. Next time you are going through a plumbing catastrophe, follow our tips to manage the situation before your emergency plumber arrives.

 Handling Frozen and Burst Pipes

In this situation, the first thing you must do is to stop water from flowing out of the burst pipe. You can do this by shutting off the main water valve. To avoid further damage, turn on the cold water taps to drain the pipes from trapped water. Once you have taken the situation in control, call your plumber to repair or replace your pipes.

If you have a problem with frozen pipes, you should also shut off the main water valve in order to assure the frozen pipes wont split. You can thaw out the pipe from the end to the tap by turning on your faucet and letting the water run continuously for a certain amount of time. The water should drip slowly. You must never use an open flame to warm the frozen pipes or use any chemical or flammable products or devices because your pipes could burst and cause a lot of damage. If you want to apply heat to the frozen pipe, you are allowed to use only a hair dryer or a warm soaked towel. An electric heating pad may also come in handy. You should apply heat only to one section of the frozen pipe until the water pressure has been restored.

Main Water Line is Broken

The main water lines can cause you a lot of problems if it breaks or has clogs. In order to handle this issue properly, you need immediate plumber services. If a broken main water line rises in pressure, it can flood your entire homes foundation and cost you thousands of dollars in structural da...

In vitro studies to demonstrate the antiviral activity of cannabidiol against hepatitis C. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharmacognosy Res. 2017 Jan-Mar;9(1):116-118. PMID: 28250664 Abstract Title:  Potential of Cannabidiol for the Treatment of Viral Hepatitis. Abstract:  : Viral hepatitis B (HBV) and hepatitis C (HCV) pose a major health problem globally and if untreated, both viruses lead to severe liver damage resulting in liver cirrhosis and cancer. While HBV has a vaccine, HCV has none at the moment. The risk of drug resistance, combined with the high cost of current therapies, makes it a necessity for cost-effective therapeutics to be discovered and developed. The recent surge in interest in Medical Cannabis has led to interest in evaluating and validating the therapeutic potentials of Cannabis and its metabolites against various diseases including viruses. Preliminary screening of cannabidiol (CBD) revealed that CBD is active against HCV but not against HBV in vitro. CBD inhibited HCV replication by 86.4% at a single concentration of 10M with EC50 of 3.163 M in a dose-response assay. These findings suggest that CBD could be further developed and used therapeutically against HCV.SUMMARY: Cannabidiol exhibited in vitro activity against viral hepatitis C. Abbreviations Used: CB2: Cannabis receptor 2, CBD: Cannabidiol, DNA: Deoxyribonucleic acid, HBV: Hepatitis B virus, HCV: Hepatitis C virus, HIV/AIDS: Human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome, HSC: Hepatic stellate cells, MTS: 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3-carboxymethoxyphenyl)-2-(4-sulfophenyl)-2Htetrazolium, PCR: Polymerase chain reaction.

How Mindfulness Makes Us Happier & Better Able to Meet Lifes Challenges: Two Animated Primers Explain "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The West has very rich contemplative tradition. Monastics of the early Christian church practiced forms of meditation that have been adopted by many people seeking a deeper, more serene experience of life. Given the wealth of contemplative literature and practice in European history, why have so many Western people turned to the East, and toward Buddhist contemplative forms in particular?

The answer is complicated and involves many strains of philosophical and countercultural history. Some of the greatest influence in the U.S. has come from Tibetan monks like the Dalai Lama and Chgyam Trungpa Rinpoche, onetime teacher of Allen Ginsberg, and founder of Naropa University and the ecumenical Shambhala school of Buddhism. Trungpa Rinpoche contrasted theistic forms of meditation, both Hindu and Christian, with the mindfulness and concentration practices of Buddhism, writing that the first one, focused on a higher being or beings, is inward or introverted and dualistic.






Buddhist mindfulness meditation, on the other hand, is what one might call working meditation or extroverted meditation. This is not a question of trying to retreat from the world. Mindfulness  is concerned with trying to see what is, he writes, and to do so without prejudice: there is no belief in higher and lower; the idea of different levels, or of being in an underdeveloped state, does not arise. In other words, all of the imported concepts that push us...

A Simple Guide to the Desaturated Urban Look in Lightroom "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The desaturated urban look is incredibly popular these days, especially among rooftoppers and other city photographers who want to give their images a moody, gritty feel. Check out this video to find out how you can create this same look in Lightroom.

Before we dive any deeper, its worth noting that, for every photographer who have made a name for themselves using this look, there is an equally angry photographer who thinks said look is tacky. Moody city shots and desaturated portraits of pretty girls half-concealed by shrubbery are not everybodys cup of tea.

And yet thats no reason to ignore a popular editing style and never learn how to replicated it. You never know when itll come in handy. Which, finally, brings us to the tutorial that will take your image from this:

This review concentrates on the anti-inflammatory properties of melatonin that may help the management of different inflammatory signalling pathways. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Inflammopharmacology. 2017 Mar 2. Epub 2017 Mar 2. PMID: 28255737 Abstract Title:  Melatonin as an anti-inflammatory agent in radiotherapy. Abstract:  Radiotherapy is one of the most relevant treatment options for cancer therapy with or without other treatment modalities including immunotherapy, surgery and chemotherapy. Exposure to heavy doses of ionizing radiation during radiotherapy results in short and long term side effects. It appears that many of these side effects are linked to inflammatory responses during treatment or after prolonged use. Inflammation is mediated by various genes and cytokines related to immune system responses caused by massive cell death following radiotherapy. This phenomenon is more obvious, particularly after exposure to clinical doses of radiotherapy. Inflammation is involved in the amplification of acute responses, genomic instability and also long term pathological changes in normal tissues. Moreover, inflammation attenuates responses of the tumor to radiotherapy through some mechanisms such as angiogenesis. Thus, the management of inflammation is one of the most interesting aims in cancer radiotherapy. Melatonin, known as a natural product in the body, has been of much interest for its anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies have proposed melatonin as a novel anti-inflammation agent. This literature review will concentrate on the anti-inflammatory properties of melatonin that may help the management of different inflammatory signaling pathways in both tumor and normal tissues.

7 Natural Laws of the Universe "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Source - Jeremy McDonald

by: Jeremy McDonald, March 5, 2017

Good afternoon my friends! It has been a long time since I have re-posted this video and it is time again to stress the point that there is a Natural Order to the Universe.

These Natural Laws bring order to the Universe and these laws can not be broken or overrode.

Although if we suffer from an unhealthy EGO it will think Natural Laws are a form of control. When in truth they are hear to keep the natural balance of the universe in tact.

Currently the world is experiencing a huge push towards bringing us back into balance. This will and can be very uncomfortable for some of us, some may be leaving this 3D reality and going back into spirit and some may seem like they are on edge emotionally or even a bit crazy at times. It is apparent the world is on edge and people are arguing more then they usually would.  The movie the Secret made the subject of the Law of Attraction popular and in truth did not teach us that it was only 1 of the Natural Laws.. without an understanding of the other laws this left people very frustrated and dis-empowered.  Take some time practice your understanding of these laws and when you are in balance within yourself then you will be in balance (in Flow) with these laws.

Missouri Laws to Ban Mercury and Foreign DNA in Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Missouri Capitol Photo

The FDA admits that thimerosal (a mercury based preservative) is still being used in vaccines.

by TVR Staff

In January 2017, State Representative Lynn Morris introduced HB 331 in the Missouri House of Representatives prohibiting vaccines containing mercury or other metals used for preservation or any other purpose from being administered to a child or adult in a public health clinic in Missouri. If passed, the legislation would take effect on Aug. 28, 2018. [1]

A second bill, HB 332, introduced by Rep. Morris, seeks to restrict the use of certain vaccines containing foreign human DNA. It requires that chicken pox and shingles vaccines administered to patients in public health clinics must not contain foreign human DNA contaminates. [2] The two bills are in response to public concerns regarding vaccine safety. [3]

Vaccine mandates and policies at the state level are generally based on the vaccine schedule and guidelines recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Preventions (CDC). HB 331 and HB 332 aim to invalidate the CDCs recommendations of vaccines that include mercury and other toxic substances. [3]

Although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains that All forms of mercury are quite toxic, and each form exhibits different health effects,[4] the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to minimize the dangers of mercury in vaccines. The FDA admits that thimerosal (a mercury based preservative) is still being used in vaccines in varying amounts.

Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines. [5]

The CDC defends the use of thimerosal in vaccines. It states:

Pagan Community Notes: Matt Schofield, Johnson Amendment, Prayer in Delaware, and more "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

13769360_1749775348624456_7386258176044656438_nMILFORD, Utah The ADF community woke up to shocking news as word spread that member Matt Schofield (1989 2017) had committed suicide Mar. 4. Schofield was veteran of the Marine Corps, and reportedly suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder. Recently his beloved therapy dog, Bear, had gone gone missing, which was reportedly a devastating loss for Schofield. Friends have said that the grief must have been too much to handle.

Born Nov. 27, 1989, Schofield was originally from Milford, Utah. His family moved to Salt Lake City, where Schofield attended Olympus High School, graduating in 2008. He then attended Snow College for one year before joining the Marine Corps. In 2013, Schofield took a job with Marine Corps recruiting, and then eventually moved back to his hometown of Milford. In recent years, he was working as a chef and taking courses through the Academy of Art University, based in San Francisco.

Schofield was a solitary Druid practitioner and was not well-known throughout the national ADF scene. However, he kept online friendship with other Druids, and followed the community happenings. Despite any connection he had made spiritual or otherwise, it did not completely alleviate his suffering. A close friend posted on his memorial page, Matt fought hard to stay here in this life as long as he could. He had a brave heart and courage to fight as long and as hard as he did. I love him, and will always love him for the spectacular human that he was and his spirit will always continue to be.

ADF members and others are now sharing phone numbers for support hotlines and organizations that specifically deal with suicide, PTSD, and veteran care. Quoting information from Schofields friend Lindsey Smith, Rev. Sean W. Harbaugh, Public Relations Director of ADF posted this statement: PTSD is real and needs the same amount of attention physical wounds do. If you or someone you love is fighting with PTSD please call the Veterans Crisis Line 1-800-273-8255 or the Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255.

Harbaugh also added, While most ADF priests are not licensed counselors, part of our training is to have a list of resources available to refer you in times of crisis. Youre never alone. Reach out.  What is remembered, lives.

5-Year-Old Friends Get Same Haircut So Teacher Cant Tell Them Apart "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

jax rosebush reddy haircut prank colorblind haircut

Photo via: Wave 3 News

When it was time for Jax, a fun-loving 5-year-old, to get his haircut, he knew exactly what style he wantedand why. He said that he wanted his head shaved really short so he could look like his friend Reddy, Lydia Stith Rosebush, little Jaxs mother, wrote in a Facebook post. He said he couldnt wait to go to school on Monday with his hair like Reddys so that his teacher wouldnt be able to tell them apart. When devising his adorable plan, Jax didnt seem to take into account one obvious physical dissimilarity between Reddy and himself: their skin color.

Jax, who is white, and Reddy, who is black, attend preschool together in Kentucky. Recently, after noticing the state of his wild hair, Jaxs mother told him that it was time for a trim. When he declared his desire for a Reddy-inspired cropped cut and explained his hilarious and harmless idea for a prank, she was in awe of his innocence. She shared the story on Facebook, accompanied by a photo of Jax and Reddy posing at their class Christmas program. Im sure you all see the resemblance, Rosebush sarcastically said about the black and white pair. If this isnt proof that hate and prejudice is something that is taught I dont know what is. The only difference Jax sees in the two of them is their hair.

Since Rosebush shared her short-but-sweet anecdote last week, it has been liked on Facebook by nearly 220,000 people and shared over 100,000 times. Following its social media success, local news station Wave 3 News decided to accompany Jax to the hair salon to complete his haircut prank. While the two boys were naturally thrilled with their matching dos (Jaxons me and Im Jaxon and Jaxons me, Reddy beamed), their parents were equally ecstatic. Its really cool to see that move on from our family right into his relationships wi...

Inhibition of VEGF secretion by tumor cells, as well as VEGF-regulated signaling in endothelial cells, are important to reduce the angiogenesis and growth of neuroblastoma. Since melatonin has anti-angiogenic effects in tumor cell lines, the aim of the present study was to study melatonin modulation of the pro-angiogenic effects of VEGF in neuroblastoma cells (SH-SY5Y). We used co-cultures of SH-SY5Y and endothelial cells. VEGF expression and protein levels were analyzed by quantitative RT-PCR and ELISA, respectively. Endothelial cell migration was assessed by wound-healing assay and endothelial angiogenesis by a tube formation assay. Melatonin inhibited the pro-angiogenic effects of SH-SY5Y cells. The conditioned medium collected from the neuroblastoma cells was angiogenically active and stimulated proliferation, migration and tube formation in endothelial cells. This effect was significantly counteracted by the addition of either anti-VEGF or melatonin. Melatonin inhibited VEGF expression and secretion in SH-SY5Y cells, decreasing the levels of VEGF available for endothelial cells. Melatonin has anti-angiogenic effects at different steps of the angiogenic process in SH-SY5Y neuroblastoma cells, through the downregulation of VEGF.

Missouri Laws to Ban Mercury and Foreign DNA in Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Missouri Capitol Photo

The FDA admits that thimerosal (a mercury based preservative) is still being used in vaccines.

by TVR Staff

In January 2017, State Representative Lynn Morris introduced HB 331 in the Missouri House of Representatives prohibiting vaccines containing mercury or other metals used for preservation or any other purpose from being administered to a child or adult in a public health clinic in Missouri. If passed, the legislation would take effect on Aug. 28, 2018. [1]

A second bill, HB 332, introduced by Rep. Morris, seeks to restrict the use of certain vaccines containing foreign human DNA. It requires that chicken pox and shingles vaccines administered to patients in public health clinics must not contain foreign human DNA contaminates. [2] The two bills are in response to public concerns regarding vaccine safety. [3]

Vaccine mandates and policies at the state level are generally based on the vaccine schedule and guidelines recommended by the U.S. Centers for Disease and Control Preventions (CDC). HB 331 and HB 332 aim to invalidate the CDCs recommendations of vaccines that include mercury and other toxic substances. [3]

Although the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maintains that All forms of mercury are quite toxic, and each form exhibits different health effects,[4] the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) continues to minimize the dangers of mercury in vaccines. The FDA admits that thimerosal (a mercury based preservative) is still being used in vaccines in varying amounts.

Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines. [5]

The CDC defends the use of thimerosal in vaccines. It states:

Sony 85mm GM vs Sigma 85mm ART: Real World Comparison "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Another day, another lens comparison takes on Sigmas king of portrait lenses, the 85mm f/1.4 Art. This time, our friend Usman from Sonder Creative tested the Sigma 85mm against Sonys well-liked 85mm f/1.4 GM out in the real world to see which of the two 85s he preferred.

Usman shares his thoughts and some sample images in the video above, and for a while there you think hes gonna tell you that the Sony is the winner, but not for the reason you might think. Where DxOMark and DPReview focused on just how much sharper the Sigma is, Usman says the image quality differences between the two are actually negligible out in the real world.

Can you tell which of these two portraits was taken with which lens? (Model: Chlo of Fox & Owl)

Even at 100% like he shows you in the video above, you probably wouldnt be able to notice the difference. Both of these lenses are optically stellar down to the last pixel.

Instead of sharpness, Usman touts other Sony features, like the GM lens better (more circular and consistent) bokeh, its more manageable size and weight, and the manual aperture ring that it has but the Sigma lens lacks.

Web Bot Data Sets Predict: Chaos Period And Disruptions Throughout 2017 Secret Hyperinflation Creeping Out "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

 

There are billions upon billions of data points being created on the internet on a daily basis. Clif High of Half Past Human has developed a web bot program designed to find, aggregate and assess them.

In his latest report, Highs predictive linguistics data sets appear to be showing the real possibility of serious financial calamity starting over the course of the next few weeks and worsening into the the end of the year.

According to a video update from SGT Report, the coming economic shock wave could soon lead to a hyperinflationary environment that would see assets like gold, silver, and bitcoin soar to new highs.

As modelspace is moved forward in 2017, and during the chaos period of March through May, the data accrues for bitcoin to become more costly than gold. As this transition takes place, the data sets have it being a temporal market for many other sets including silver

These sets have a strange occurrence developing as nations, and central banks begin to buy bitcoin. These sets are providing the propellant for the rush through 1448 in US dollars on its way to $2300.

These new data sets have the chaos period of these next few months as being pivotal for both bitcoin and silver.

These sets are arguing for the secret hyperinflation to be creeping out. As a temporal marker, these set are going to the idea that silver will be the shining light as the move into hyperinflation shows in the public consciousness.

The Kibbutz Economy and The Blockchain A Hypothetical Scenario "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Kibbutzim is a social experiment that has successfully achieved its pre-set goals during the initial years following establishment of this Israeli collective community. During the later parts of the twentieth century, the altered circumstances have faced Kibbutzims with criticism regarding the goals and functioning style of this social experiment. Nonetheless, Kibbutzims have successfully managed to develop and become one of the main contributors to Israels economy. The blockchain technology has become relatively saturated in terms of acceptability and commercialization. This is due to, at least partly, the fact that the blockchain technology is developed and utilized by private entities, that are anonymous in most cases. As such, most of the public are suspicious of the blockchain technology and all of its applications, yet the recent interest of governments in cryptocurrencies and various applications of the blockchain technology is likely to change this attitude soon.

An Indian author envisioned a scenario where the Kibbutz concept fully integrates with the blockchain technology, which represents a win-win situation for both concepts. He analyzed in detail a proposed scenario for an interplay between the life in the Kibbutz and the blockchain technology; cryptocurrencies are used for payments of day-to-day activities of the Kibbutz using their own blockchain.

What is A Kibbutz?

A Kibbutz represents an Israeli collective community. Initially, the communitys economy was based on agriculture. Presently, farming is supplemented by several other economic activities such as high tech enterprises and industrial plants. The past few decades have witnessed privatization of some Kibbutzims and the communal lifestyle have markedly changed. A Kibbutz member is known as a Kibbutznik. Some Kibbutzniks developed enormous high tech industries, such as Kibbutz Sasa which recorded $850 of yearly revenue in the year 2010.

The following represents the unique features of Kibbutzims:

1- For Kibbutzims, the society is the primary focus. Each individual functions according to his/her skills and abilities to add more value to the society as a whole, apart from individuals or family units.

2- Kibbutzims have an egalitarian character.

3- Kibbutzims provided the world with many entrepreneurs and innovators.

4- Kibbutzims are fully autonomous when it comes to how they conduct themselves, so the activities of the Kibbutz are not controlled by the government.

5- Kibbutzims have autonomous governance. Accordingly, they represent decentralized governance, in a way or another, insid...

Banksy Opens Hotel in Bethlehem Within Site of Separation Barrier "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

banksy palestine bethlehem walled off hotel

Elusive artist Banksy has once again grabbed the attention of the art world with the announced opening of the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem. Located in viewing distance of the West Bank Separation Barrier, this former guest house saw a transformation over the past 14 months, as Banksy morphed the space into a art hotel.

Open from March 20, 2017, the hotel includes 8 guest rooms, 1 budget barracks, and a presidential suite. As with Dismaland, Banksy is also involving other artists in the project, with Palestinian artist Sami Musa and Canadian artist Dominique Petrin each designing rooms. The hotel also includes a piano bar, exhibition space, and area dedicated to the history of the wall. Visitors to the Walled Off Hotel will sleep in art laden rooms because as Diane Arbus once said to live with an artwork is something different, to glimpse it from the corner of your eye.'

Why open a hotel in Palestine now? Banksy reminds us, 2017 marks a hundred years since the British took control of Palestine and helped kick start a century of confusion and conflict. At the time of writing, there are no special events being planned to mark the occasion.

Though the hotel is sure to stir controversy, its important to remember Banksys longstanding connection to Palestine. More than a decade ago he painted the Separation Barrier, and in 2007 his Santas Ghetto pop-up shop was located in Bethlehem. Over the years hes continued to visit, most recently leaving his mark in February 2015.

If nothing else, the hotel, which Banksys website states is run by the local community, will bring attentionand tourist dollarsback to this conflicted area of the world. Rooms start from $30 for a bunk bed in the budget room, while common areas will be open to the public from 11 am to 7:30 pm (10 pm for the piano bar).

Whats a Red Pixel? Explaining Why These Red Strawberries Arent Red "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Its all over Internet by now: the baffling picture of red Strawberries, and the claim it does not contain any red pixel.

There are a few versions going around the Internet, but for this post I downloaded the image that was originally posted by Akiyoshi Kitaoka on twitter (with gamma: 1.0). Below you can see other images at different gamma levels. Clearly one can perceive the strawberries to be red in color; however, it is claimed that there are no red pixels in the image. What does that statement mean?

A lot of people are claiming that this image has a lot of pixels with R > 0 (meaning the red channel of the RGB image). Some others take a more strict definition of red and find many pixels with R > 127. Still others are giving a counter argument that for pixels to be red, R should be greater than both the G and B channel, i.e. R > G and R > B.

Well I have a question for all these RGB thinkers: what color is the pixel with RGB values of [255, 254, 254]? It satisfies both R > 127 and R > G, B.

Its white if you are still wondering.

So, how do we define red pixels. One way is, instead of looking at the RGB values of pixels, to think in the language of hue, saturation, and value or HSV. In the language of HSV, we need to find pixel with a hue of red. Wikipedia gives a rather complicated definition of hue as the degree to which a stimulus can be described as similar to or different from stimuli that are described as red, green, blue, and yellow.

Mathematically hue is defined as:

5 Everyday Household Items that Waste your Money and Destroy your Health. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"





My journey to living a healthy, minimalistic lifestyle has naturally led me to question the most common of practices we do on a daily basis as a society. What I have learned is that often times, many of the things we consume we do for no other reason but tradition and habit. In some cases we dont do things because its practical or it makes sense, we do it because that is how everyone else does it. We mostly are not considering a better alternative or that something might be unnecessary altogether. It is hard to see our impact on a mass scale, therefore it is easy to overlook the accumulated damage.

What if I told you that some of the items you may or may not purchase on a regular basis for your home are a total waste of money and you could get along just fine without ever having to purchase it again? Not to mention, some of the items I have listed are harmful to your health as well as the environment. The good news is, giving them up doesnt mean you will have to sacrifice convenience in the long run, although if you are really attached to something it might feel that way in the beginning. Choosing to give up modern conveniences and mass-marketed items will only save you money and create a healthier inner and outer environment.



 

1) Trash bags and paper towels.

One day several years ago, I was in my moms kitchen and noticed she had a big drawer full of plastic grocery bags, as well as a box full of trash bags under her kitchen sink. The environmentalist in me cringed. I think this might be a common picture for many households that is innocently born of habit. Grocery bags serve as great trash bags. There is no reason to have a ton of plastic bags you are not using and to continue buying trash bags. Not to mention they are free. In the city I live in plastic grocery bags are fortunately banned and we are encouraged to bring our own. If you dont bring your own you get brown paper bags, which is what I use as a trash bag. I forget my bags enough times to have a decent stash. You may find yourself taking the trash out more often, but this can be avoided by being conscience of buying waste and packaged stuff and knowing how to organize your trash. We rec...

Circle Still Uses Bitcoin But Is Also Building on Ethereum "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Circle Chief Evangelist Anders Brownworth, who previously taught blockchain technology at MIT, gave a presentation on day two of the 2017 MIT Bitcoin Expo in which he mainly focused on what Circle has been working on for the past few months.

Circle is a mobile payments application that aims to make sending money to anyone in the world as easy as sending them a message via their mobile phone.

During his talk, Brownworth noted that although Circle dropped the ability to buy and sell bitcoin in their mobile application late last year, the company still uses Bitcoin in the background of their current operations. Brownworth also explained Circles need for state channels and why the company is now building a new platform on top of Ethereum.

Circle Still Uses Bitcoin

During the opening portion of his presentation, Brownworth made it clear that Circle has by no means stopped using Bitcoin completely. In fact, Bitcoin still plays a key role in the background of the companys operations.

Bitcoin very fundamentally informs the way Circle works behind the scenes, and it continues to do so, stated Brownworth. We continue to use it.

In addition to various background operations, Brownworth also noted that Circle has helped fund MITs Digital Currency Initiative (DCI), which funds Bitcoin Core contributor Cory Fields, Bitcoin Core maintainer Wladimir van der Laan and lightning network developer Tadge Dryja. In the past, former Bitcoin Core lead maintainer Gavin Andresen was also a part of the MIT DCI.

Circle also operates a trading desk for bitcoin and other digital currencies. We actually operate a trading desk for all virtual currencies a very active trading desk, noted Brownworth.

The Need for State Channels

According to Brownworth, one of the main things Circle is working on right now is Spark. Its unclear if this is an attempt by Circle to create the main payment platform of the future to replace the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum...

Japanese, Singaporean banks finance controversial Indonesian coal plant "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A consortium of Asian banks will provide US$3.36 billion in loans to support the expansion of the Tanjung Jati B coal-fired power plant project in the Jepara district of Indonesias Central Java province. Plans to expand Tanjung Jati B are part of a broader initiative that aims to add 35,000 megawatts to Indonesia's electrical grid by 2019. The government is relying heavily on coal to meet this ambitious goal, with 117 new coal-fired power plants planned. The Tanjung Jati plant, and its expansion plans, have been the target of sustained protests from both local and international groups. The 2,640-megawatt plant began operating in 2006, and local fisherman say their catches and, correspondingly, their earnings have since declined. The planned expansion will add another 2,000 megawatts of capacity, drawing protests from activists who say the expansion further threatens the health and livelihoods of the surrounding communities.

How to Tell a Story in Your Landscape Photos "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Sometimes when I go to new locations, they can be so awe-inspiring that I feel photographically challenged. When this happens, I need to take a step back and think about the locations special traits that fill me with such awe.

What is important about this areais there some natural event occurring, or some irregular weather phenomenon? In short, what are the stories this new place is trying to tell me? Answering these questions often lends direction to my photography and helps me realize which stories about the area I want to share with others.

(Note: although I primarily photograph natural subjects, this technique works equally well with any location or subject).

I recently used this technique when I spent several days in the Namib Desert in Namibia last year. At first, being surrounded by these huge red sand dunes was overwhelming. What should I shoot first? As I explored the desert around me, I began to recognize several stories that this place had to tell.

The most obvious story was about the sheer size of the sand dunes found here. This is the oldest desert in the worldhome to the worlds largest sand dunes. I had photographed sand dunes before, but never any of the massive size that I saw in this desert. The rust-orange massifs were more akin to sand mountains than something as temporary and fleeting as a dune. Some of the largest dunes stood over 1,000 feet (~304 meters) tall, dwarfing the sparse trees and flora that dared to grow at their feet. In the photo below you can faintly see a few trees, which give the enormity of the dunes a sense of scale.

The giant sand dunes of Namibia turn many shades of red and orange under shifting clouds, Namib-Naukluft National Park, Namibia.

Although this desert receives only 10mm of rain each year, amazingly there are large mammals that thrive here. This was story number two.

A Visit to Banksys New Hotel in Bethlehem "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The new Banksy hotel in Bethlehem has an unconventional view for a hotel. (all photos by MTL+ Collective for Hyperallergic)

BETHLEHEM, Occupied Palestinian Territories Last Friday, Banksys new art venture into the Palestinian Occupied Territories was revealed to the local public and the world at large: the Walled Off Hotel. The artist already runs a Banksy Gift Shop in the city of Bethlehem, but the latest project is more ambitious and consists of nine rooms and a suite, with what is billed as the worst view in the world.

Beginning on March 11, the Banksy hotel will open in the Holy Land. Visitors will be able to enjoy site-specific art by the British artist while staying at a posh place with all the amenities and services of a five-star accommodation. The hotel is located on Karytas Hospital Street and right by Israeli Checkpoint 300, which is steps away from the Aida Palestinian refugee camp. The site has larger-than-life views of Israels West Bank barrier wall, commonly referred to as the Apartheid Wall by local Palestinians. The hotel is also near the five-star Intercontinental Hotel, which is situated in a manner that hides a view of the Aida refugee camp from the main street.

We talked to local Palestinians about the Walled Off Hotel, and in summary, here is what we know about this top-secret project. Those contracted to work on it maintained the secrecy of what they were doing until the announcement was made to coincide with a soft opening and press invitations. Although some people were skeptical that this is project that normalizes the occupation and settler colonialism in Palestine, the majority seems to view the project favorably as advancing awareness of the Palestinian struggle for justice and liberation.

Many locals appear to be in awe of the artwork, including its precise details and overall level of perfection. They believe that there are no Israeli investors participating in the...

The Inner World of a Man Who Taught Himself How to Draw "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Ray Hamilton, Untitled (1990), ballpoint pen, marker on paper, 14 x 17 in, RH044 (all images courtesy Kerry Schuss Gallery unless otherwise noted)

Kerry Schuss Gallery is currently showing a retrospective of the short career of a self-taught artist named Ray Hamilton (19191996), and its a beautiful, delicate exhibition of one mans inner world. The show focuses on the later years of Hamiltons 14-year art career, the time period that he worked after suffering a serious stroke in 1990.

Ray Hamilton, Untitled (1992), watercolor, pencil on paper, 17 x 14 in, RH133

Although the facts of Hamiltons life are sketchy, we do know that he was born in Columbia, South Carolina, had a career in the Navy, and ended up living in Brooklyn. After his stroke, he started attending adult classes at a not-for-profit organization called H.A.I. (Healing Arts Initiative) that works with adults with developmental issues. Given rudimentary drawing tools ballpoint pens, graphite, and colored pencil on plain paper he communicated his observations of the worlds both inside and outside his body.

Sample Footage: See Laowas Super Weird Macro Lens in Action "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Remember that crazy macro relay lens Venus Optics showed off at Photokina? The Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay lens looks more like a rifle barrel than a camera lens, and now we finally get to see what it can do.

Yesterday, Venus Optics released some sample footage of the Laowa 24mm f/14 Relay in action, showing you how this lens helps you get closer to your tiny subjects without startling them even if your subject is underwater.

Yes, you read that right. It turns out the Laowa 24mm lens will come with a Waterproof Cap that will let you dip the lens a couple of feet down and capture underwater macro photography while you hang out on dry land. Heres a longer cut of underwater and above ground sample footage captured with the Relay lens:

The videos are just a sneak peek. Theres still no word on how much Venus Optics will charge for this strange lens when its officially released sometime in 2017, but youll know just as soon as we do.

New Zealand Denies Immigration to U.K. Wife Because She's Too Fat "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

New Zealand Denies Immigration to U.K. Wife Because She's Too Fat

New Zealand immigration officials are keeping a U.K. wife from joining her husband "down under" because they say she is too fat, the Daily Mail reports.

Click here to read the full report in the Daily Mail.

British citizens Rowan Trezise, 33, and Richie Trezise, 35, are living apart as she tries desperately to shed the pounds needed to comply with New Zealand guidelines that immigrants maintain a healthy BMI, or body mass index.

BMI is a weight-height ratio that estimates percentage of body fat. The New Zealand Immigration Service requires all applicants to undergo a complete medical examination, which includes body size measures like "waist circumference."

The regulations were supposedly put into place for budget reasons. The country's health care system cannot afford to open its doors to overweight immigrants, a spokesman for New Zealand's Fight the Obesity Epidemic explained to the Daily Mail.

Over half of New Zealand adults and nearly one-third of New Zealand children are already overweight or obese, according to the group. Those figures are expected to rise, as are the health problems associated with being overweight, such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

What is a Kundalini Awakening? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

With the current cosmic energy and the focus on heart awakenings, it is the perfect time to talk about Kundalini Awakenings.

Kundalini Energy

Kundalini is a feminine, creative energy that lives inside all of us. It is often envisioned as a snake that lies coiled up in the pit of the belly or base of the spine. It is said that this snake is coiled precisely three and half times around.

If you have ever had dreams about snakes, or felt drawn to the energy of snakes, it could very well be that your Kundalini energy is preparing to awaken or rise.

While not everyone will envision a snake, this is the most common and most well recognized symbol of Kundalini energy.

Kundalini energy is one of the most powerful energetic forces in the body as it rules over your creative energy and the infinite wisdom that resides inside the gut area.

The gut is one of the most powerful energy centers of the body, which is why emotions are often felt in the gut. Whether its butterflies in the stomach or a feeling of nausea when something feels wrong, the gut is always speaking.

A Kundalini Awakening

When your Kundalini awakens, it is almost like that coiled up snake inside of you begins rising and extending upwards from the belly into the crown of the head.

When your Kundalini awakens, the passage of Divine intelligence from your brain, heart, and mind are all aligned and reconnected.

This is an extremely powerful energy force and is not only beneficial for spiritual development but also creative development too. Whether you are a creative artist or simply looking to create a better life for yourself, having your Kundalini awakened can help.

A Kundalini rising, which is the force of that snake rising up is very similar to a feeling of an orgasm, or the feeling you get when you are on one of those giant drop rides at a theme park. In fact, the force of the Kundalini rising is unmistakable.

A Kundalini Awakening can trigger all areas of your life, just like a regular Spiritual Awakening can, in fact, the two energies are extremely similar and are probably hard to separate.

When you become aware of the Kundalini energy that lives inside of you, it becomes a lot easier to activate this energy.

Just like any awakening process, Kundalini Awakenings cannot be forced, they have to instead be welcomed.

You definitely do not want to force or hurry along any awakening process for the sake of getting it done quicker, as there is always a j...

Texas Public University Pays Students To Take Courses On "White Privilege" and "BLM" "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

An honors program at a public university gives students a scholarship and early course signup and lets them use laptops if they take classes on subjects like white privilege and Black Lives Matter, which both have community engagement components.

Sam Houston State University in Texas (SHSU) offers a scholarship of up to $2,800 to students who take these courses or others as part of its Elliott T. Bowers Honors College. Students who gain admission into the Honors College can sign up for courses earlier than their non-Honors peers, obtain access to a special computer center, and automatically receive the Bowers Scholarship upon acceptance into the college. The Honors students also graduate with distinction and gain usage of cameras, video cameras, and laptops for their class projects.

Understanding Whiteness: Historic and Contemporary Viewpoints on Privilege, asks SHSU Honors students how might white people better understand white privilege and their potential role in dismantling systemic racism? and requires students to engage in personal self-reflection and educate others about white privilege through action research projects and community engagement initiatives.

The seminar examines white privilege from modern and historical perspectives, e.g., the social construction of whiteness, as well as key historic events and movements advancing white privilege (eugenics, global colonization, holocaust).

PUBLIC HEARINGS: Speak to WV-DEP in Webster, Summers & Harrison Counties on MVP "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

State DEP to host public hearings this week regarding Mountain Valley Pipeline

From an Announcement of WV MetroNews, March 5, 2017

CHARLESTON, W.Va. The state Department of Environmental Protection has three public hearings scheduled for this week in areas which will be affected by the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline.

The public hearings are required before the issuing of three necessary permits for the pipeline. Those include the West Virginia 401 Water Quality Certification, the Natural Streams Preservation Act Permit, and for the Oil and Gas General Water Pollution Control Permit.

Developers want to build the pipeline which will cut diagonally through West Virginia and include access roads, inner-connectors, meter stations and compressor sations across 195 miles through Wetzel, Harrison, Doddridge, Lewis, Braxton, Webster, Nicholas, Greenbrier, Fayette, Summers and Monroe Counties.

Developers said the line is vital to delivering abundant natural gas from West Virginia to a growing market on the east coast. However, some are adamantly opposed to the route of the line, fearing it threatens streams, forests and present other environmental hazards.

That information will be shared during the hearings set for:

>>> Monday night at Webster County High School,

>>> Tuesday at the Summers Memorial Building in Summers County,

>>> Thursday at Robert C. Byrd High School in Harrison County.

All three meetings start at 6 p.m.

Lokal Hotel Designed by Jersey Ice Cream Co. "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

My dream travel situation is one in which the privacy and cushiness of a hotel room is combined with the laid-back kitchen access of a real home. As much as I love a good restaurant, for a lot of us with health issues, cooking our own food makes the unpredictability of travel easier to handle. So I was excited to hear about Lokal, a new boutique hotel in Old City, Philadelphia that focuses on apartment-style suites designed by Tara and Percy of Jersey Ice Cream Co.!

170225_LokalHotel_Floor1-7

Lokal co-founders Chad and Courtney Ludeman designed the hotel to work for both short- and long-term guests, providing rooms with separate bedrooms, full (gorgeous) kitchens, living rooms and washer/dryers. The rooms have an open, airy feeling that provides a modern contrast to the historic Old City neighborhood. Jersey Ice Cream Co. employed a mix of vivid blue paint (Seaworthy by Sherwin Williams), vintage furniture and salvage wood to add color and detail to the rooms and make each of the six apartments feel like a unique space.

Reserve Bank of India Predicting the Future of Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), R. Gandhi, gave a keynote address last week at a fintech conference stating that Bitcoin has value and is eliminating currency. However, he also gave several reasons why digital currencies that are not backed by the government will fail to achieve mass adoption.

Fintech players, leading bankers, technology experts, and policymakers gathered last Wednesday in Mumbai at the conference called Picup (Platform for Innovation and Collaboration with Upcoming and Promising) Fintech 2017. The event was organized by a collaborative effort of IT industry body Nasscom, industry chamber Ficci, Indian Banks Association (IBA), and the Boston Consulting Group (BCG).

Bitcoin is Eliminating Currency

The Deputy Governor opened the event with a 20-minute inaugural address. He discussed fintech, crowdfunding, blockchain technology and Bitcoin, with the general subject of digital currency taking up the latter half of his speech.

Gandhi introduced Bitcoin by giving a short history of its origins, explaining that the digital currency is rooted in anarchist philosophy. He then outlined a few previous attempts at a stateless digital currency from the Cypherpunks movement mentioning May, Back, Dai, and Szabo by name before noting that:

Bitcoins have acquired value. They are being used for settling varieties of economic transactions. People are using them as investment also. And a store of value. So currency is being eliminated.

This Might Be The Most Beautiful Poem Ever Written "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

BY SOFO ARCHON

Desiderata

Ive always loved reading poems. To find a great poem, however, is a difficult thing to do, especially in a market oversaturated with poetry books of all sorts that usually have nothing of importance to say.

The following prose poem, Desiderata, is certainly not one of those poems that you read and have no impact on you. Written by Max Erhman, it is in fact one of the most beautiful poems youll ever come across. Read it and allow yourself to be moved by the subtle power of its words.

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you h...

Dr. Jordan B Peterson is a clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, in Canada. In 2016, he began speaking out against draconian legal policies put forth by radical social justice groups that are calling for what is known as an equity standard of social policy. This would replace equal opportunity with equality of outcomea goal that seeks to ensure everyone can accomplish the same thing, regardless if they have the skills or desire to do so.

She was apparently fronted with a choice given to her from President Trump: resign or support our position. She caved and eventually signed off on the order.

Russian Hackers Reemerge, Said To Demand Bitcoin Ransoms From Liberal Groups "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

By Tyler Durden

hackers1

In the latest attempt to steer the political narrative away from Trumps wiretapping accusations and back to Russian hackers, Bloombergs Michael Riley is reporting this morning that at least a dozen liberal groups in the U.S. have been targeted in a new wave of new cyber attacks. Apparently those hackers are scouring the emails of left-leaning organizations for embarrassing details and attempting to extract hush money in the form of, drumroll, evil, anti-establishment bitcoin.

At least a dozen groups have faced extortion attempts since the U.S. presidential election, said the people, who provided broad outlines of the campaign. The ransom demands are accompanied by samples of sensitive data in the hackers possession.

In one case, a non-profit group and a prominent liberal donor discussed how to use grant money to cover some costs for anti-Trump protesters. The identities were not disclosed, and its unclear if the protesters were paid.

At least some groups have paid the ransoms even though there is little guarantee the documents wont be made public anyway. Demands have ranged from about $30,000 to $150,000, payable in untraceable bitcoins, according to one of the people familiar with the probe.

Of course, in what has become a journalistic norm, all of the details from Bloomberg come from two anonymous people familiar with probes being conducted by the FBI and private security firms.

And while Bloomberg admits that attribution is notoriously difficult in a computer attack, they go ahead and assert that all cyber crimes are perpetrated by Russian based groups anyway.

The hackers have used some of the techniques that security experts consider hallmarks of Cozy Bear, one of the Russian government groups identified as behind last years attack on the Democratic National Committee during the presidential election and which is under continuing investigation.

Interview: Photographer Travels to Remote Areas to Document Disappearing Traditions "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

oliver klink travel photography china

Gentle, Piezography Ink (2015).

Photographer Oliver Klink focuses his work on the complex ways in which modern life unfolds. His award-winning, black-and-white imagery has been featured in National Geographic and Popular Photography, among other publications. In particular, his Consequences series combines his artistic abilities with anthropological investigation.

Consequences, which sees Klink traveling to remote, yet accessible, areas, seeks to address threats to cultural diversity through modernization. In an age where globalization is expanding, how can unique traditions continue to thrive?  Through visits to countries such as Myanmar, Bhutan, and China, Klink seeks these answers.

Klinks work has a timeless feel, owed in large part of his mastery of Piezography. This digital printing process, where photographers mix their own inks, enhances the highlights and shadow of each photograph. In this way, Klink is able to pluck each moment from the background, artistically shaping the final result.

We were lucky enough to speak with Klink about his work in general and how Consequences has developed. Read on for the full interview.

Many tree species in eastern US may be unable to adapt to changing climate, study finds "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Evidence continues to mount for the toll climate change is taking on the ecosystems of the United States national parks and forests from coast to coast. The latest study, published in Global Change Biology by researchers at Woods Hole Research Center in Massachusetts, predicts that warming temperatures across the eastern United States will alter the distribution of a range of tree species, leaving many too vulnerable to adapt to changing conditions. Of the 40 tree species studied, those found most at-risk are balsam fir, quaking aspen, and others related to northern spruce-fir and hardwoods. Well-known tree species such as eastern hemlock and sugar maple are expected to see significant changes in distribution in the coming decades, as well. The research concludes that the most vulnerable species will need active human intervention to migrate quickly enough. Trees, after all, cannot walk, said Woods Hole scientist Brendan Rogers, the studys lead author. They must disperse seeds that, in turn, establish, grow and reproduce. The pace of climate change threatens to rapidly overtake this migration, and landscapes fragmented by humans present even more challenges. [caption id="attachment_193703" align="aligncenter" width="780"] New research suggests that the tree species in the eastern U.S. that are most vulnerable to the impacts of rising global temperatures will require human intervention in order to adapt to changing climatic conditions.

The new HDR mode works by automatically scanning the scene to determine the correct exposure range and then capturing three DNG files which are then automatically aligned, merged, deghosted, and tonemapped in the app, explains Adobe. You get a 32bit floating point DNG, with all of the benefits of both an HDR and a raw photo, which is processed by the same algorithms with the same quality as the HDR technology built into Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom.

The new RAW HDR mode in Lightroom Mobile should make a mockery of your phones built-in HDR capabilities, which can typically balance out only the harshest of tones by using two JPEGs. In comparison, Lightrooms Mobiles three RAW DNGs are orders of magnitude more useful.

To take advantage, youll have to have an iPhone 6s or newer, iPhone SE, or iPad Pro 9.7-inch on the iOS side, or a Samsung S7, S7 Edge, Google Pixel, or Pixel XL for Android. Additional Android devices are being developed for as quickly as possible.

Here are some sample photos, all of them captured using this new HDR mode:

from Hambach Forest

JUNE 23rd. to 26th.

Code Rood (Code Red), a disobedient action coalition against the fossil fuel industry, will block the Harbor of Amsterdam, the worlds largest gasoline port and second largest coal harbor. The Port imports and stockpiles coal from Columbia, Russia and South Africa, burned to power the european electrical-grid.

A camp with its infrastructure of legal support, media, food and wellness(dealing with repression) will be set up in the vicinity of the port at a later to be announced location. Focus is being put on digital security with privacy pre-action workshops organized for climate activists which stress the importance of using Linux, preferably Tails and encryption and utilizing e-mail accounts only to be used for the action itself.

Imaginative Insects Formed From Resin and Brass by Hiroshi Shinno "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Japanese artist Hiroshi Shinno builds hyperrealistic sculptures of insects that dont exist, perfect forms of imaginative species that look as if they were built from vibrant leaves and delicate flower petals. Even these aspects of the creatures are false, as each leaf or petal was cast from resin and painted with acrylic paint before being placed on the models brass base.

In addition to building these fantastical works, Shinno also sketches the initial ideas for his imaginative creatures in an Insect Diary on his website. You can see more of the Kyoto-born artists insect-based sculptures and 3D work on his Tumblr. (via Lustik)

Greece: ELF Cell of Anti-Civilization Agitation Take Responsibility for Arson Solidarity Action "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from 325

E.L.F. Thessaloniki Responsibility claim

Because of the call from South America against the new destructive plans I.I.R.S.A. which had as its primary concern the development and opening of trade between developed roads, telecommunications, sea and air networks, we decided to take action. On Wednesday 15/2, at 2am, we torched two excavation machines, in the center of Thessaloniki.

The new profitable plan will proceed to a massive destruction of the Amazon which includes deforestation, elimination of the fauna and flora and the persecution of indigenous populations, as well the pollution of the waters aiming at the economic growth of the industrial complex. A complex that is inextricably connected with authority and dominance, while simultaneously being diffused within society, which in turn feeds it, mostly willingly. A society that reproduces the social standards that have been enforced, that perpetuates the regime of waged slavery, that is the observer in the onslaught of dominance. A totality clouded by propaganda, formed to follow the journeys dictated by subjugation.

Against their miserable journeys, we propose the anarchist revolutionary action. The spreading of discourse and action, and the destabilization of social peace, order and security.

Just like dominance, thus the material targets are everywhere. The authoritarian complex consists of different but interconnecting institutions and structures. The bet for us is the attack on here-and-now, against every aspect of authority, and the maximization of direct actions, so our strikes can be as chaotic and effective as possible.

Against development projects and structures of the techno-scientific complex.

For the destruction of civilization.

Strength to the anarchist hostages of war.

An incendiary signal to all comrades who fight authority with all means.

Fire to the machines.

Today's News:

The above comic is a direct link to sales, but we also have a website for the book here. Please check it out!

Now then:

Thank you everyone. THANK YOU! For real, I mean it, thank you for giving me the last 10 years to do comics full time. In some ways, this feels like the culmination of an adventure that started back in 2006 when I decided to start work on a degree in science.

For the last two years or so, Kelly and I have spent every spare moment sneaking in time to read articles, journals, and textbooks for this book. In retrospect, this was a little crazy, given that we both had full time jobs, and were raising a small kid while creating an even smaller kids! Thanks to getting very little sleep and a LOT of help from our parents, we managed to get it done.

Think of this book as a sort of optimistic skeptics guide to a bunch of technologies that might be important in the next century or so. We picked emergent technologies we were interested in, which we also thought were not really covered well in media. Then, we dove in, trying to learn as much as we could, reading lots of technical papers and books, and interviewing experts in these new fields.

The result is a book that, we hope, gives you a full picture of these ideas, so that youll know what news to be excited about and what news is missing the point. This is *not* a book offering a philosophy of the future or a prediction of life in the year 2050. Its really just a Mary Roach style investigation of a bunch of neat stuff. Think of us as people who are really interested in the future, but who approach it with a deeply skeptical lens.

If you go to the Soonish website, youll note that were offering a bunch of pre-order incentives - signed bookplates, bonus comics, etc. Its important to me that were as transparent as possible about how we run things, so heres why were structuring the launch this way:

Circle Still Uses Bitcoin But Is Also Building on Ethereum "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Circle Chief Evangelist Anders Brownworth, who previously taught blockchain technology at MIT, gave a presentation on day two of the 2017 MIT Bitcoin Expo in which he mainly focused on what Circle has been working on for the past few months.Circle is a mobile payments application that aims to make sending money to anyone in the world as easy as sending them a message via their mobile phone.During his talk, Brownworth noted that although Circle dropped the ability to buy and sell bitcoin in their mobile application late last year, the company still uses Bitcoin in the background of their current operations. Brownworth also explained Circles need for state channels and why the company is now building a new platform on top of Ethereum.Circle Still Uses BitcoinDuring the opening portion of his presentation, Brownworth made it clear that Circle has by no means stopped using Bitcoin completely. In fact, Bitcoin still plays a key role in the background of the companys operations.Bitcoin very fundamentally informs the way Circle works behind the scenes, and it continues to do so, stated Brownworth. We continue to use it.In addition to various background operations, Brownworth also noted that Circle has helped fund MITs Digital Currency Initiative (DCI), which funds Bitcoin Core contributor Cory Fields, Bitcoin Core maintainer Wladimir van der Laan and lightning network developer Tadge Dryja. In the past, former Bitcoin Core lead maintainer Gavin Andresen was also a part of the MIT DCI.Circle also operates a trading desk for bitcoin and other digital currencies. We actually operate a trading desk for all virtual currencies a very active trading desk, noted Brownworth.The Need for State ChannelsAccording to Brownworth, one of the main things Circle is working on right now is Spark. Its unclear if this is an attempt by Circle to create the main payment platform of the future to replace the likes of Bitcoin and Ethereum as Circle CEO Jeremy Allaire said was needed late last year.Brownworth described Spark as smart contract driven, and the Circle chief evangelist explained the payments companys need for state channels on any system they build. Well use state channels to keep the cost of transactions low keep the fees low and also to add privacy, he said. For us, state channels are very, very important. We need them either formally supported or we need the contract primitives to be available, so we can make time-locked contracts (HTLCs).An example of state channels is payment channels in Bitcoin where many payments can be made between two parties before eventually being settled on the blockchain. The lightning network is an attempt to create a generalized layer of payment channels where users can send payments to a wide number of other parties via this mechanism.According to Brownworth, Circle will eventually open-source the Spark pla...

Nibiru Causing Sleep Deprivation "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Thoughts of Nibiru have plagued patients suffering from sleep deprivation, says Dr. Leon Bronstein, a neurologist formerly employed at Cleveland Clinics Sleep Disorder Center. Every year, the clinic treats an alarming number of patients whose nocturnal slumber is interrupted by cataclysmic visions of a cosmic intrudera comet, meteor, asteroid, or planetcausing planet wide devastation as it slams into Earth.

Dr. Bronstein says the clinic has seen a marked increase in patients sharing similar, but not identical, nightmarish dreams. Many patients identify the nocturnal invader by nameNibiru, Nemesis, Wormwood, The Destroyer, Herculobuswhereas a minority of those afflicted wake up in a cold sweat, rambling hysterically about an unnamed celestial object colliding with Earth.

In either case, according to Dr. Bronstein, the patients memory of the dream is vivid enough to allow full recollection long after the patient has been awake. While specific details might differ, patients have described graphic dreams and visions of a planet-like object, many times the size of earth, flanked by flaming wings stretching millions of miles into space. Invariably, the object either nearly misses or strikes Earth, eradicating all life on the planet.

That so many people seem to be sharing these near-identical dreams is the pending causality, said Dr. Bronstein. The endocrine system and a hypersonic pituitary gland might be partly responsible. But there is a deeper reason. A colleague of mine, who I disagree with, says that nocturnal grinding of teeth is a likely cause. He speculated that the grinding causes a rumbling in the brain that could be perceived by the brain as a meteor. But this in nonsense. The answer is straightforward: patients have either had their brains irradiated or have shared a common external stimulus prompting pr...

Germany: Cologne Coal Train Blockade, April 1 "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Hambach Forest

The day of action will begin at 11 am on the Marcel-Proust promenade with a climate festival and from 3 pm on the traintracks in the Municipal Forest of Cologne.

2017will be a busy year of actions against lignite mining. In August, thousands of people will enter the Rhine Coal Region and orchestrate massive actions of civil disobedience. In November, another action will take place during the climate summit in Bonn (COP23) with a Climate Camp being set up for the duration. In the meantime Ende Galende Action will be organized in Cologne. We will block the train, which brings the processed coal from the Rhine area from Frechen to Merkenich.

We are calling for an immediate switch to renewable energies from Rhine Energy and City of Cologne!

We want the whole thing: the end of fossil capitalism!

We are fighting not only against coal, against fracking, against oil, but also question the profit logic and growth. These promote false solutions such as market mechanisms, large-scale projects and the continued exploitation of the global South. While few energy conglomerates earn splendidly and are assisted with subsidies, they alone disconnect power from 350,000 households annually in Germany and make their own employees believe that the coal will last forever.

Talking Heads Featured on The South Bank Show in 1979: How the Groundbreaking New Wave Band Made Normality Strange Again "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

I think suburban life is something that almost any American can understand, says Talking Heads drummer Chris Frantz near the beginning of The South Bank Shows 1979 episode on the band. They might dislike or like it, but they can relate to it. Its a nice metaphor, or whatever, for modern life. That observation functions as well as any as an introduction to the band who, after having debuted as openers for the Ramones just four years earlier at CBGB, went on to build a worldwide fan base enthralled with the way their music, their performances, and even their self-presentation rendered American normality and banality new and strange.

Originally called The Artistics, the band found its true name through a dissolution, reformation, and glance at the pages of TV Guide. All of us could immediately relate to that name, says bassist Tina Weymouth. We also thought it could have many connotations, the most important of which was that it had no connotation with any existing music form. Its TV, video supposedly the most boring format. This ethos extended to the songwriting procedure of lead vocalist and guitarist David Byrne, who deliberately used language and references that were no more interesting than normal speech and no more dramatic and yet somehow, in the song context, might become more interesting.






The result: albums like 1978s More Songs About Buildings and Food. From a distance of nearly forty years, the Talking Heads of those days look a bit like pioneers of normcore, the fashion, much discussed in recent years, of deliberately looking as aesthetically average as possible. Im glad we dont have to dress up in uniforms every day, says Frantz of their refusal of the dueling punk and glam modes of dress sported by so many rockers at the time. Byrne speaks of originally wanting to wear the most normal outfits possible, as determined by observing people out on the street, but it turned out that a lot of average clothes require more upkeep than Im willing to do...

Frankie Boyle on Boris Johnson: Like Oswald Moseleys soul trapped in a Furby "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Heres our three favourite things from Frankie Boyles latest column about Brexit.

On Boris Johnson:

Hes just there to divert us from the horrific things the government is planning, like a nodding dog stuck to a serial killers dashboard. The media has a lot to answer for in terms of promoting the image that Boris is sweet and cuddly, when in fact hes more like Oswald Mosleys soul trapped in a Furby.

On Theresa May:

Ever since [she was defeated in the Lords] has worn the appalled expression of a famously strict headmistress who has intercepted a note being passed between pupils that turns out to be a breathtakingly vivid representation of a masturbating werewolf.

On Jeremy Corbyn:

It must be depressing being [him] Knowing that your chance of becoming Prime Minister is so slim even the MI6 group working on how to discretely bump you off have packed it in.

The Lost Cultural Hubs of New Yorks Gilded Age "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Edisons Greatest Marvel: The Vitascope (1896) (via Library of Congress)

In many ways, the frenetic New York of today was rooted in its Gilded Age, when from 1870 to 1910 the citys growth accelerated in its population, skyscraper-punctuated architecture, and cultural institutions. Everything from the formation of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park, to the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and opening of Ellis Island, happened over the course of these four decades. In The Gilded Age in New York, 18701910, recently released by Black Dog & Leventhal Publishers, Esther Crain chronicles some of these moments with text and illustrations based on contemporary accounts and archival materials.

Crain, who is behind the history site Ephemeral New York, explains in an introduction why this era was so metamorphic:

The most common observation about New York is that it never stops evolving. Yet its hard to imagine an era in Gothams history more transformative than the Gilded Age, roughly between the end of the Civil War and 1910. While much of the fractured nation was regrouping, New York was already on the rise, fueled by fortunes made from wartime financing and manufacturing. For the next three decades, the confident city with its pull-down-and-build-over-again spirit, as Walt Whitman called it, marched northward, extended skyward, and then increased its size sixfold by annexing the cities and villages that shared its harbor.

New CNN Spy Video Reportedly Shows Heated Discussion Between Trump And Inner Circle In Oval Office "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

CNN has released a new video reportedly showing a heated discussion between President Trump and his closest aides in the Oval Office last Friday, just a few hours before the President said on Twitter that his predecessor Barack Obama was utilizing electronic surveillance to monitor the Trump campaign staff ahead of the election.

The spy video, likely recorded with a telephoto lens from a distance, shows President Trump, chief strategist Steve Bannon, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, his son-in-law Jared Kushner, and his daughter Ivanka discussing the fall-out from accusations that Attorney General Jeff Sessions met with Russian officials.

According to Newmax founder and Trump confidante Christopher Ruddy, the video may show the very meeting Ruddy referenced when he said over the weekend that he had never seen the President this pissed off.

(Alternate Youtube video link)

Though no audio is available, we have no doubt that investigative journalists at mainstream networks are feverishly contacting lip-reading experts to help translate the private Oval Office meeting.

As an interesting sidenote  and this may be because were not as net savvy as others out there  we do not recall a time that CNN or other alphabet networks ever released similar videos of private Oval Office meetings being held by their beloved President Barack Obama. A precursory Google search for the phrase Obama Oval Office Video shows scores of results of President Obama in approved Oval Office videos and walking outside of the Oval Office, but nothing as intimate as the video just released by CNN. Curiously, the aforementioned search query shows a result for Trumps private oval office meeting.

"Life is Easier With Guilt" Public Information Campaign "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

This is part 2 of our look at crime in Scarfolk (see last weeks post about 'Real British Crime').

In 1972, Scarfolk Council decided that the "presumption of innocence before being proven guilty" was a bit too presumptuous.



A council spokesperson said that "such legal bureaucracy completely ignores the rights of guilty people who want to be legally recognised as guilty but have either committed a crime that has unfortunately gone undetected, or are, through no fault of their own, awaiting trials which could take many months, even years to rightfully establish their guilt.



The spokesman also pointed out that people may be guilty of actions that are not yet considered crimes and underlined the importance of recognising these peoples culpability to ensure peace of mind.

In the spring of 1973, the government's propaganda department launched a campaign that promoted guilt as a desirable attribute. It was so successful that many people feared they might not be guilty enough and committed horrific crimes to nurture in themselves feelings of self-worth and wellbeing.

The campaign featured a policeman whose nickname was "PC Fang". Allegedly, he had the ability to instil a deep sense of guilt in even the most innocent citizens. Some say he achieved this by using supernatural powers; others say he used a hammer.

Neferious Obama "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Bombshell: FBI Twice Refused To Wiretap Trump, So Obama Went Around Them


The FBI twice refused requests by Obama admin to wiretap Trump, so the White House went above the agency instead

Former President Barack Obama failed on two occasions to get a warrant to wiretap Donald Trump due to a lack of evidence, resulting in The White House circumventing the FBI and federal courts.  

Legal experts have warned that the consequences of Obama using the powers of the NSA, CIA and FBI to spy on his political opponents could now result in his prosecution.

Lawnewz.com reports:

The stories currently are three-fold: first, that Obamas team tried to get a warrant from a regular, Article III federal court on Trump, and was told no by someone along the way (maybe the FBI), as the evidence was that weak or non-existent; second, Obamas team then tried to circumvent the federal judiciarys independent role by trying to mislabel the issue one of foreign agents, and tried to obtain a warrant from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts, and were again turned down, when the court saw Trump named (an extremely rare act of FISA court refusal of the government, suggesting the evidence was truly non-existent against Trump); and so, third, Obama circumvented both the regular command of the FBI and the regularly appointed federal courts, by placing the entire case as a FISA case (and apparently under Sally Yates at DOJ) as a foreign case, and then omitted Trumps name from a surveillance warrant submitted to the FISA court, which the FISA court unwittingly granted, which Obama then misused to spy on Trump and many connected to Trump.

3 Doors Down Still Waiting for Post-Inauguration Sales Spike "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

ESCATAWPA, Miss. American rock band 3 Doors Down has not yet received the anticipated bump in revenue and fans following their performance at President Donald Trumps inauguration in January, according to sources close to the band.

It doesnt make any sense, said Brad Arnold, vocalist of the prosaic rock outfit. This is the biggest gig you can get! Its like the Super Bowl, but every four years. We were so excited and then nothing. At all. Would you believe our album sales have actually gone down a bit?

After a series of high-profile refusals and cancellations by other acts, the notably average quintet was asked to perform their signature blend of adequate hard rock to an allegedly record-breaking crowd.

Holy shit that was easily the most people weve ever played for! said guitarist Chris Henderson after the show. Not counting the times there were more, of course. But we were told not to mention that. I should stop talking.

With the lack of A-list celebrities at the event, many speculated President Trump was grasping for straws with his bookings. Yet, despite appearances with celebrities like Lee Greenwood and Jon Voight, some in the aggressively pedestrian band may already regret their involvement.

I dont know if we shouldve been mixed up with this, admitted drummer Greg Upchurch. We thought itd lead to some great opportunities, but so far, its been all county fairs and one show at some alt festival that I dont want to talk about. Trump said we were his favorite band, but I dont know. You dont think he would lie about a thing like that, do you?

Despite data showing their stagnant record sales, President Trump assured the American public that 3 Doors Down has never been more popular since playing his inauguration.

My inauguration was a huge success great music, the best music anyones ears have ever heard, said the former game show host and current President. The 3 Days Down played a lovely show. Congratulations on going triple-platinum in album sales. Thanks to me, these men still have jobs.

I Think My Son Steven Reads This Website and We Just Want Him to Know We Love Him "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Greetings punksters,

Thank you for taking the time to read this web log on TheHardTimes Internet website. I have seen this site open on my son Stevens laptop a few times so I figured this would be a good way to reach out to him since he blocked my Facebook friend request. Steven scrawled Fuck Authority! Eat Shit Mom and Dad! on the side of my Camry, (a car that cannot be beat on gas mileage and reliability, which is what you want in an automobile my young friends) and I thought this would be a great way to let him know something very important:

Youre a great kid Steven and your mother and I love you.

 I dont quite get this whole mohawk thing, but I think its great you care about the plight of Native Americans. In the same way I love that youre getting in touch with your past by wearing your Grandpas old Army jacket all the time. Remember when we went to the fair and he took you on the roller coaster? That was pretty rock n roll right? Please call him and thank him for the birthday card he sent you, the Sheriff of Grandpatown misses his deputy!

You may find it hard to believe but your mother and I were once punks like you. Far out, man! wed say. Or, The man killed Jimi! Jimi refers to Jimi Hendrix, who is an electric guitar player. Just like the one we got you for your birthday, the one you put all of those stickers on that say the F word on them. I may not approve of your language young man, but youre a very special kid and you mean the world to your mom and I.

Related: 5 Marilyn Manson Songs That HEY FUCK OFF DAD IM WRITING MY ARTICLES RIGHT NOW

So, Steven, even though your demo may have a song called, Mom and Dad dont love me. I just want you, and all of your friends on this message board to know that just isnt true. We love our little punker just as much today as when I had to carry you off the top of the slide because it was too high and you wet yourself. Remember? What a fun day!

Trump To Fuel A Gold Boom In 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report from OilPrice.com is a paid advertorial. 

trump-gold1

As Trump sets out to make America great again, gold is back on everyones radar, gaining on widespread uncertainty and promises of high-level inflationary infrastructure spending. For our favorite precious metal, this is a euphoric time. Gold is great again, and all-American goldeven better.

The worlds hottest mining belt right now is the U.S. state of Montana. With gold futures up 10 percent and spot prices up almost 7.5 percent in the first quarter, history is preparing to repeat itself with another gold rush.

And while the Wild West itself has been tamed since the last gold rush, there will be nothing tame about Montana gold. The state is home to one of the worlds biggest metals bonanzas, and its Silver Star Mining District is a gold belt with massive historic Gold Rush infrastructure and what Broadway Gold Mining Ltd. (TSX-V:BRD; OTCQB:BDWYF) is eyeing as some of the most lucratively underexplored and underexploited gold territory in the world.

The Broadway dream team gets itthis is a smart move on pure American gold. But so does China. In this race to stake new claims in Montana, there is growing concern that China may get too much of a foothold here for the national security interest to stomach.

Montana will be thanking Trump for his phenomenal effect on gold. Gold thrives on chaos, and even the slight possibility of impeachment keeps gold prices up. But gold is now good in any scenario. If he remains in office, Trump will pursue highly inflationary policies, and while gold loves chaos first and foremost, inflation is its mistress.

Gold stocks are loving this. By mid-February this year, the markets largest gold stocks saw double-digit gains. Freeport-McMoRan (NYSE:FCX), up 21 percent in January, sold an impressive 1.1 million ounces of gold in 2016 and produced a whopping 4.65 billion ounces of copper.

Illustrator Draws Humorous Comics About Her Mental Illness to Help Destigmatize It "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

mental health comics

Humor is a powerful way to deal with the barbs of life. On its face, mental illness is nothing to laugh about, but illustrator Gemma Correll has used her biting wit as a coping mechanism for her own depression and anxiety. They take the form of relatable mental health comics and illustrations that allow us to commiserate with Correll, as well as many others who share her condition.

Statically, 1 in 13 people in the world suffer from anxiety, and depression affects an estimated 350 million people. Even if someone doesnt personally know what its like to feel the way that Correll depicts, it allows them to better understand the struggle.

By pointing out the perils of dealing with mental illness, Correll is also de-stigmatizing it. With her humorous, charming illustration style and clever one-liners, its no surprise that her work is very popular. As it goes viral online, people from around the world better know the dread of a phone call, excessive worrying about worrying, and the mental spiral that one negative comment can bring. Their presence also creates an open dialogue on brain health, and best of all, people realize that they arent alone in these feelings. I think that its a lot more prevalent than people realize, Correll told Mashable. I know that I would have felt a little better as an anxiety-ridden teenager if I knew that I wasnt completely alone in my fears.

Parsons: Dentists give info supporting fluoridation "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Based on screenings at schools, Parsons USD 503 has the second-highest rate of untreated tooth decay. That was one of the reasons cited by a group of local dentists during Monday evenings city commission meeting why the city should re-start its fluoridation of the public water supply.

Fluoride alone does not stop tooth decay, but it is one tool that helps in its prevention, Dr. John  Siebrasse told commissioners during their regular meeting.

Siebrasse was the main spokesman for all of the local dentists, including Drs. Barry Heavrin, Justin Ebersole, Joe Wommack and Ron Findley. All but Ebersole attended Mondays meeting. Siebrasse said Ebersole had to be out of state. The dentists had invited Pam Smith of the Kansas Department of Health and Environment to join them on Monday to answer questions regarding fluoride, but Siebrasse said she declined to attend because as a KDHE employee she cant speak in favor or opposition of fluoridation. She had heard there will be a petition circulated in opposition of the city adding fluoride to water, Siebrasse said. She would, however, come at the invitation of the commission to give scientific evidence on water fluoridation.

The city discontinued the decades-long practice of adding fluoride at the water treatment plant in 2013 because of corrosion in piping at the point where fluoride and caustic soda were added. The city later replaced the elbow pipe where the corrosion occurred and continued adding caustic soda, which is necessary, but never re-introduced fluoride, which promotes healthy teeth but is not mandated by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment.

The commission agreed to have an engineering firm design plans to relocate the fluoride ejection point, but higher priorities and a high cost delayed the project.

On Feb. 20 the commission approved a grant application that could pay for up to $30,000 of the project. If approved the commission would have to seek bids on the project in June.

Siebrasse said tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease five times more prevalent than asthma, four times more common than early-childhood obesity and 20 times more prevalent than diabetes. Early childhood caries (cavities) are disproportionately concentrated among socially disadvantaged children, especially those who qualify for Medicaid coverage.

Siebrasse said Shelly Martin, superintendent of Parsons USD 503, has said that 70 percent of the students in Parsons are in the free or reduced lunch program. He said national averages show that 80 percent of cavities come from 7 percent of the pop...

A man has spent two decades digging out an arctic cave and what he did with it is astonishing.

Colorado based Tim Linhart has the unusual profession of an ice sculptor and one day challenged himself to build a musical instrument made entirely out of ice.

Pleased with the result, Tim decided to make more and more, but he decided he needed a residence for his magical creations.

He needed somewhere that would always be at freezing point so his instruments wouldnt melt, which could only mean one thing.

An ice cave was needed. So he built one and spent the next twenty years doing it up.

After searching for the perfect spot, the innovator found a place in Lulea, Sweden, just below the arctic circle and promptly spent two decades carving out the cave.

Science needed for more transparency in Paris climate projections "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Forests hold extraordinary potential to check climate change, if theyre kept standing and allowed to siphon off planet-warming carbon. But sorting out how big that role can be and what happens when forests get knocked down isnt easy. Now, a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change reports that forest-rich nations could play a huge part in keeping the temperature rise under 2 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial levels, a goal that 195 countries agreed to pursue at the UN climate talks in Paris in 2015. But discrepancies in the way these countries assess the impact of forests on carbon emissions could frustrate attempts to keep the climate cool, said Joanna House, a climate scientist at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom and an author of the study. [caption id="attachment_193699" align="aligncenter" width="768"] A tree in the Peruvian Amazon. Photo by Rhett A. Butler[/caption] "There is no doubt forests have enormous potential, House said in a statement. Efforts to curb deforestation, reforest cleared areas and protect standing forests could potentially account for a quarter of the emissions reductions required by 2030 to stay on target, she added. Just how countries are using those strategies and what effects theyre having isnt entirely clear, though. Nearly all of the countries that signed onto the Paris Agreement put forth estimates of their carbon emissions and reductions targets in what are known as intended nationally determined contributions or INDCs. But these INDCs arent uniform, as countries employ their own

Feminist Divorce Law Is Whats Keeping Women As Primary Caregivers "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

The Womens March on Saturday after President Trumps inauguration had an impressive collateral damage radius. Marchers exposed many fractures within the womens movement, feminist or not, female or not, and many more. One would have to be completely Internet-free to have missed the many scabs the march picked.

It also spawned a spinoff. This Wednesday, March 8, is to be a day without women.

Aging Boomer feminists seem nostalgic for the days when they rallied for housewives to go on strike. But we no longer live in the early 60s. Despite the incessant complaining about womens disadvantages, women are now all over the economy and have more responsibilitiesnay dutiesto others beyond identity politics loyalties.

Then there is the question of what to do about the nations children. For instance, if the teachers across the country strike, then what will feminists with school-age kids do? Will striking women of means with young children allow their nannies to strike? Or will nannies remain the invisible paving stones of modern professional womens path to success?

A striker might retort something about father care. I dont entirely object. I do wonder, however, what the January Jones-type woman, who believed all the peddled arguments about not needing fathers around, will do. And I note that this protest is during the week, and thus requires fathers to take a day off to care for the children. The strikers obvious goal is to achieve massive ripple effects in the economyno one works when women dont work!but I do not think the ripples will have the effect they desire.

Many of modern womens limitations are self-inflicted by the reigning feminist movement, and there was enough self-inflicted-wound exposure for the Saturday protest.

Dads as Doofuses in Both Culture and Law

If you recall from six weeks ago (news cycles of the Trump administration have been so fast and loud, one can be forgiven for having forgotten) the New York Times, that paper of record of all the news thats fit to print, ran a story about posh dads left at home to bumble through a day of caring for their children while their childrens mothers marched. Another piece in the narratives seeking facts style popular in modern reporting, the little ditty of an article did not go over as planned. The editor responsible tweeted out an apology a few days later.

Indian Health Service Opens New Youth Regional Treatment Center in California "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published March 6, 2017

HEMET, CALIFORNIA  The Indian Health Service (IHS), in consultation with the 104 federally-recognized tribes of California,  announced the grand opening of the Desert Sage Youth Wellness Center in Hemet, Calif. The new Youth Regional Treatment Center (YRTC) will provide culturally appropriate substance use disorder services to American Indian and Alaska Native youth ages 12-17.

IHS is pleased to announce the first of two youth regional treatment centers that will serve American Indian and Alaska Native youth in California, said the IHS Acting Director, Rear Adm. Chris Buchanan, REHS, MPH. Desert Sage demonstrates our commitment to our American Indian and Alaska Native youth and families by offering culturally-centered, evidence-based, individualized behavioral health services.

Desert Sage Youth Wellness Center will treat approximately 100 tribal youth annually. The wellness center is the first federally-owned and operated health care facility in California to serve American Indians and Alaska Natives. Currently, most of Californias Native American youth who receive residential chemical dependency treatment are sent out-of-state to non-IHS or non-tribal facilities that do not always meet the unique cultural needs of Native American youth. The IHS is working towards the construction of a second YRTC in California. The estimated completion date for the Sacred Oaks Healing Center in Davis, Calif is early 2019.

The new center is in Representative Raul Ruzs congressional district. Dr. Ruiz is thrilled to see the opening as this outstanding center which will provide critical behavioral health care services for American Indian and Alaska Native adolescents and their families. Dr. Ruiz has been proud to help secure federal funding for the center since 2013. Below is a statement from Dr. Ruizregarding this exciting advocacy success.

Concepts of Cryptolaw How Blockchain Based Legal Applications Are Changing The Law? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/2mLZwl1

The advent of bitcoin has introduced the world to a groundbreaking innovation that can change the face of humanity once and for all. The past few years have witnessed governmental interests, across several countries, in many of the aspects and applications of the blockchain technology.

The examples are numerous; The Bank of England will issue its own cryptocurrency. Sweden is moving its real estate recording system to the blockchain. Dubai is working to issue official governmental documents on the blockchain. The US Department of Health and Human Services is currently investigating applications that rely on the blockchain technology for management of medical records. Despite the fact that the rate of rise of such blockchain based legal applications is skyrocketing, legislators , who integrate the blockchain in various legal processes, do not usually consider , in a systemic manner, the overall implications of the introduction of blockchain based legal applications on the law. This will definitely represent a significant problem because the law itself will have to undergo considerable transformations after moving such legal processes to blockchain based systems and other forms of Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) systems.

Lets take an example to better understand the problem; If the US transferred the Uniform Commercial Codes Article filing system to the blockchain. This would omit the need for traditional State filing systems, along with the filing office. Moreover, substantive rules related to failed research, defective filings and lapse filings would also be debatable because the blockchain technology guards against the occurrence of such failings. A blockchain based filing system would enable transactions info to travel swi...

High fluoride content in water crippling northern districts "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PATIALA: A Mohali-based orthopaedician has claimed that there has been an alarming increase in the cases of skeletal fluorosis a potentially debilitating bone disease caused by excessive fluoride content in drinking water in the north districts of Punjab, including Patiala, Ludhiana and Jalandhar.

Claims by Dr Gagan Deep Singh, who practises at a charitable hospital in Mohali and has compiled data related to the disease in a study spanning four years, have already been iterated in studies carried out by medical institutions earlier. He said that he compiled data of patients with the disease coming to him and found that there were 1,174 cases of skeletal fluorosis in 2013, and these rose to 1,543 in 2014, 1,864 in 2015 and 2,134 in 2016. This suggests that the situation is turning grave with each year, he said.

Already, a large number of cases of skeletal fluorosis have been reported from southern parts of the state, including Ferozepur, Faridkot and Bathinda districts, due the presence of high fluoride content in drinking water.

In skeletal fluorosis, fluoride in drinking water gets accumulated in the bones and weakens them. The disease can be crippling for a patient.

Dr Gagan said he was intrigued by multiple cases of skeletal fluorosis that started arriving at his hospital in 2013. Worried over the rise in number of these cases, he started asking patients with symptoms of the bone disease to bring water samples that they consume. The test results confirmed the presence of high fluoride content, he said.

The doctor said pain in the joints, teeth, muscles, stomach and head the symptoms of the disease were common among people coming to his hospital from Patiala, Rajpura, Nabha, Sanour, Sirhindi, Fatehgarh Sahib, Doraha, Ludhiana and some patients had even come from Jalandhar.

A few studies that were published in some of the renowned journals last year have also established prevalence of fluoride and even nitrate in groundwater in the state. A study by Government Medical College, Patiala, in 2016 had come out with stats similar to that by Dr Gagan. The 2016 study had claimed that while cases of skeletal fluorosis were found in most of the areas that were studied, crippling fluorosis, which is an advance stage of this disease, were also found in some areas, including Barnala.

Dr Gagan said he would soon be sending his report to the state health and other departments, so that the authorities could take an informed decision while planning and executing projects to ensure supply of safe drinking water in the state.

Political Polarization in the U.S. and Social Inequalities "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Democrats and Republicans are deeply divided. By definition, political parties have differences of opinion. But these divisions have widened. Twenty years ago, your opinions on political issues did not line up the way we have come to expect them. Today, when you find you share an opinion with someone about systemic racism, youre more likely to have like minds about environmental policies, welfare reform, and how they feel about the poor, gay and lesbian people, immigrants and immigration, and much more. In other words, Democrats and Republicans have become more ideologically consistent in recent history.

A recent Pew Report reported that in 1994, 64% of Republicans were more conservative than the median Democrat on a political values scale. By 2014, 92% of Republicans were more conservative than the median Democrat. Democrats have become more consistently liberal in their political values and Republicans have become more consistently conservative. And this has led to increasing political polarization (see HERE and HERE for smart posts on this process by Lisa Wade and Gwen Sharpe). You can see political polarization happening below.

You might think ideological commitments naturally come in groupings. But there are lots of illogical pairings without natural connections. Why, for instance, should how you feel about school vouchers be related to how you feel about global warming, whether police officers use excessive force against Black Americans, or whether displays of military strength are the best method of ensuring peace?  The four issues are completely separate. But, if your Facebook feed looks anything like mine, knowing someones opinion about any one of these issues gives you enough information to feel reasonably confident predicting their opinions about the other three. Thats what ideological consistency looks like.

Consider how this process affects understandings of important systems of social inequality that structure American society. Discrimination is an issue that sociologists have studied in great detail. We know that discrimination exists and plays a fundamental role in the reproduction of all manner of social inequalities. But, people have opinions about various forms of discrimination as welleven if theyre unsupported by research or data. And while you mi...

The above is a snippet from a ditty by the worlds most notorious gourmand, Cookie Monster, sung during his trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 1983 Sesame Street film, Dont Eat the Pictures. (Worth noting here that the appetite of Cookie Monster is clearly not restricted to cookies alone.) Cookie Monster is a beast, but its not unusual to want to sink your teeth into something totally inedible, even if its art. Sometimes, it just looks that good.

Ukrainian pastry chef Dinara Kasko, inspired by her background in architecture, makes geometric desserts that look far more like tiny sculptures than soft, velvety cakes but thats exactly what they are.

The Power of Nature to Heal Your Mind "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

BY SOFO ARCHON

In the modern world, living hectic lives in big jungles of concrete, being constantly busy, filled with concerns and distractions, were so stressed that we cant relax our minds and find peace with ourselves and the world around us. Our worries and desires overwhelm our brains and the chatter in our heads is out of control.

In our desperate efforts to heal our minds and feel better, many of us resort to drugs, entertainment, or medical treatments, but we usually find out that all those things eventually dont improve our well-being in any way. In fact, in the long run they usually harm us more than they help.

The good news, however, is that theres something out there that can actually help heal our minds, only if we are wise enough to harness its tremendous power for our own benefit.

Whats that, I can hear you asking.

Nature!

Below is a beautiful, soothing short film revealing the power of nature to heal our minds that will urge you to spend more of your time in the embrace of our common Mother.

Let it speak to your heart.

Open Letter to Aussies Who Reject the Port Arthur Conspiracy Theory and Insist It Was Him (This little old lady has got guts) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Open Letter to Aussies Who Reject the Port Arthur Conspiracy Theory and Insist It Was Him

Ad as it appeared on page 17 of The Adelaide Advertiser, Feb 23, 2017

by Mary W Maxwell, PhD, LLB

Dear Aussies Who Hate Conspiracy Theory, and Who Believe that Martin Bryant Was the Killer at Port Arthur,

Someday you may be arrested for something you did not do. You may think you can straighten it out. In the first place, you may think the normal workings of the law will take care of the mistake. Or, if that fails, you will get members of your family or community to seek redress for you.

I have news for you. It will not turn out like you think. The courts have stopped doing the right thing. It is a very, VERY frightening situation. I follow it rather closely as regards both the Australian and American legal scene. Trust me, for the moment: it is not like it used to be.

If you have a rellie who is a conspiracist, I ask you to stop  running away or showing contempt. It really hurts him or her, as he or she is trying to do the right thing by you!

In regard to one important event, the Port Arthur massacre of 1996, I can walk you through it quickly below. Im not a person who gets off on crime thrillers. I basically hate this stuff. But I felt obliged to learn about it.

Ill state only the facts for which there is plenty of support. Or,  if I speculate, I will say so.

I speculate that elements within the Australian government planned and carried out the Port Arthur massacre, just as the some officials in the United States government planned and carried out the 9-11 destruction of the World Trade Center.

One major indication of the guilt of government, is that, regarding 9-11, all branches of the US government refuse to hold an inquiry.  Similarly at Port Arthur, two of the most normal, well-established ways to handle a murder scene were ignored the use of an inquest...

Classified video from 1952 shows the US military testing biological warfare on the US "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

From 1949 to 1969, the US government carried out at least 239 tests on unsuspecting US civilians that were meant to simulate biological weapon attacks.

Officials back then used what they believed were harmless simulants of actual bioweapons. But Leonard Cole, the author of the investigative book Clouds of Secrecy: The Armys Germ Warfare Tests Over Populated Areas, tells Tech Insider that these supposedly harmless germs are all considered pathogens now.

A newly declassified 1952 Department of Defense film, released on Sept. 30, 2015 in response to a FOIA request by the site Government Attic, shows the enthusiasm with which the DoD viewed those tests at the time.

Both in tone and content, its hard to believe, especially from the non-Cold War perspective of today.

Where the forest grants went "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

If you dont know where youre going, youll end up someplace else. So said US baseball legend Yogi Berra, on the importance of having a goal in sight and a map for getting there. Those of us engaged in forest philanthropy the investment of grants with the aim of protecting and replenishing the worlds forests have well-formed ideas about the best places in which to seek change. Some funders focus on policy reform, others on shifting commodity supply chains, empowering communities, or direct conservation. All of these approaches are valid. They and others besides will be needed to roll back deforestation. But if we accept it is possible to do too much of one thing and too little of another, or that some change-making activities are simply more reliant on philanthropic finance (adversarial campaigns or anything too political being a case in point), we see that grant-makers would be wise to reference their strategies against choices made by other donors. What is the flow of grant finance around specific issues, forest regions, and theories of change? Where do gaps and opportunities lie? How do forest programmes operated by foundations and governments compare? The total dollar value of forest philanthropy is much smaller than that associated with government-backed climate and development funds. But foundation grants can pack good bang for the buck get it right and you maximise philanthropys potential for taking risks, building movements and pioneering change; get it less right and you could end up subsidising

Letter to my Classmates on our 40th Reunion "IndyWatch Feed Health"

My college publishes a book for each class celebrating a five year reunion.  We are invited to submit an essay. This is mine.

Hello Classmates,

A few years ago, someone sitting in my office looked up at the diplomas on my wall and said, You went to Harvard? I didnt know you were smart!

I mention that not only to brag about how stealth I am with keeping any bit of intelligence I might possess under wraps but also to acknowledge  before I launch into what may seem like a rant  that I understand that I have benefited in small and big ways from my Harvard education. Part of the tirade to follow focuses on my impression that we have come to live in a world of branding where a superficial gloss of information overtakes substance. That bothers me deeply even though I am aware of the extent to which I have benefited from my associations with one of the greatest brands there is. Yet, this institution disappoints me. It is hard for me to feel celebratory on the occasion of our 40th reunion. As my career winds down, I feel more disappointment and dismay than the glow of lifelong achievement.

My story is not an uncommon one. My grandparents were all immigrants and I come from one of those hard-working, striving families who benefited enormously from the American promise. Nevertheless, my admission to Harvard was an unexpected surprise. I came to our freshman year with a hopeful sense of awe at my great luck to be among you. I quickly learned that it was not the Harvard way to show ones awe or aspiration or striving. I was a photographer on The Crimson and I recall a certain disdain my colleagues held for someone who was considering applying to medical school because it reflected an overt ambition. I recall that now with bemusement given that among my fellow Crimeds were some of the most ambitious people I have ever met.

But kudos to them. Many have done remarkable work and I congratulate them. As for me, I did end up in medical school, as seemed somehow preordained for me, and I struggled to use my ambition to do good. I felt a certain sense of burden and responsibility from the legacy of my grandparents struggles. They gave up so much and it seemed to be in the service of my success in life. As I write this, I think how nave and earnest this all sounds. I would have been embarrassed to share these thoughts with you until now.

Given my education, my intellectual skills, and my desire to be worthy of my grandparents sacrifices, I probably should have pursued some sort of academic research career. But for reasons that are far more interesting to me than to others, this is where I landed: I have been a psychiatrist for people who have psychotic experiences  hearing voices others do not hear, believing things that no one else tends to believe. I work in public mental health with people w...

A French Bitcoiner Argues in New York Court its too early to Regulate Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A Bitcoiner has been suing the New York Division of Financial Services over its Bitlicense since 2015, claiming the regulation is too burdensome and precludes many from starting Bitcoin businesses.

Bitcoin entrepreneur and French national Theo Chino requested that a New York court grant a request for limited discovery or begin the process to dismiss the case. The request centers on the notion that the definitions of bitcoin between the two parties are too different, and more research is thus needed to better define Bitcoin. According to plaintiff Mr. Chino, the case cannot be resolved without making further factual determination as to whether Bitcoin is a financial product or service.

The case highlights whether the virtual currency regulation by the New York State Department of Financial Services was designed and issued by Defendants-Respondents in an arbitrary and capricious fashion.

The lawsuits most recent filing continues: There are significant and irreconcilable factual differences between the arguments presented by Plaintiff-Petitioner and by Defendants-Respondents which can only be resolved through limited discovery. Those fundamental factual differences and disputes involve whether Bitcoin is a financial product or service which impacts whether Defendants-Respondents had the authority to regulate Bitcoin, and whether Defendants-Respondents acted in an arbitrary and capricious fashion when they designed the Regulation.

Under investigation is Jeffrey Claude Bartleson, 52, who was arrested Jan. 29 and then re-arrested Wednesday after a campaign worker in the McCain office told police she believed Bartleson molested one of her sons.http://www.northcrane.com/2017/03/04/john-mccains-campaign-manager-arrested-over-pedophilia-charges-against-young-boys-media-silent/

Anti-Soros Uprising Spreads Across Europe, Media Blackout "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Baxter Dmitry

Liberal media, in thrall to the globalist masterplan, is suppressing news that George Soross Open Society Foundation is being banned across Europe.

Europeans are rising up against George Soros and his Open Society Foundation in their millions, as governments crack down on the organization.

Europeans are rising up against George Soros and his Open Society Foundations in their millions, as governments on the continent mount simultaneous crackdowns on the liberal billionaires umbrella of globalist influence-peddling organizations.

[Kp note: I just noticed Clifs logo, which appears to be a crow. Kind of aligns with all the recent posts from Crowcaws.com. First time I recall seeing that logo. I like it!] [And about halfway through there is a lot of information about how Donald Trump is successfully riding the giant wave of change we are on right now. This is one reason he is here.]

We are in the midst of massive changes. Massive paradigm shifts. In almost all arenas of our lives at all levels, on all dimensions. And that is one reason I wanted to post this Clif High message.

This Man is Selling Air in a Jar for a Breathtaking $250 Bucks "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Its no joke. John Green, British ex-pat, is hawking fresh mountain air from the Swiss Alps online, stating, the air in the mountains is like champagne [so] I decided I had better start selling it.

While it may be true that the air in the mountains of Switzerland is pristine, especially compared to cities like Beijing, New York, Mumbai, and others, Greens desire to make a buck off of the sad state of the worlds environment is akin to the Nestle corporation trying to privatize water by extracting it and selling it back to citizens whom they stole it from, for thousands times it original cost.

airrrr

Greens site says, claim yours while stocks last. He supposedly collects the air near a babbling mountain steam, and hell sell you some in three different sizes: a pint costs $97, a quart $167, and a 3/4 gallon jar will run you $247. He also suggests you put it in your freezer when it arrives, and open it for the best experience.

Though Green states he plans to give 25% of the profits from selling air in a jar to the charity,  World Vision, it seems in poor taste when 9 out of 10 people globally are breathing poor quality air, according to the World Health Organization, which recently called for dramatic action against pollution that is blamed for more than six million deaths a year.

It isnt just developed countries who have poor air, either. The poorer the country, often the worse their air quality is.

The most unbreathable air is actually found in Pakistan where thousands die each year due to abhorrent air quality. The next worst air quality is found in Qatar, which joins its neighbors, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain in a top ten worst air list.

Residents are Actively Opposing Sunoco Pipeline across Penna. "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"



Pipelines disturb neighborhoods, families, farms & forests

Residents look to township codes to block Sunoco pipeline

From an Article by Michaellae Bond, Philadelphia Inquirer, March 5, 2017

Photo: Workers install 20-inch epoxy-coated pipes on the Mariner East 2 pipeline in the rolling hills of Washington County, Pa., February 16, 2017. They can lay 2,000 to 3,000 feet per day.

One of the 50 people in a town meeting hall so crammed he had to stand asked how many of his fellow citizens wanted to form a group to express their safety concerns and demand answers from the company that planned to plant a new natural gas liquids pipeline. Almost everyone shot a hand toward the ceiling.

As Sunoco Logistics Partners L.P. begins construction on the 350-mile Mariner East 2 pipeline, which the company says is necessary to meet demand for natural gas products and to bring jobs to the region, residents in Thornbury Township, Delaware County, a prosperous community of 8,000, are making plans to at least slow down what they cant seem to stop.

Activists in Thornbury and West Goshen Township, Chester County, two of the 18 towns in the pipelines path, have hired attorneys and have sent notices to municipal officials that they are invoking an infrequently used statute that allows private citizens to sue companies for alleged violations of town ordinances.

Eric Friedman, who attended last weeks Thornbury meeting, urged township officials to enforce local zoning ordinances that he says the Mariner East 2 pipeline project would violate. Friedman, president of the Andover Homeowners Association, said the pipeline route would take away legally guaranteed open space. Residents have notified officials that if they didnt act by March 12, the homeowners might resort to the courts.

West Goshen resident Tom Casey is leading those accusing Sunoco of violating a township ordinance that requires a certain distance between pipelines and occupied buildings. Township officials there face the...

Banksy Opens a Hotel with the Worst View in the World: Visit the Walled Off Hotel in Bethlehem "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Quirky, artist-customized guest rooms equipped with wifi, fridge, and safes

Leather couches and an air of undeserved authority in the communal areas

VIPs who spring for the Presidential suite will enjoy access to a tiki bar, library, and Dead Sea minerals for use in a plunge bath spacious enough for four

Sounds like the sort of hotel catering to well-heeled hipsters in San Francisco, Brooklyn, or Shoreditch

but Bethlehem?

The artist Banksys latest massive-scale project may never find its way onto Palestines official tourism site, but its no joke. The fully functioning hotel is set to open for online bookings on March 11.

Visitors should be prepared to put a $1000 deposit on their credit cards at check in, a security measure aimed at those who might be tempted to walk off with artwork by Sami Musa, Dominique Petrin, or the hotels famous founder.

Guests are also cautioned to contain their excitement about their upcoming stay when passing through customs at Tel Aviv airport, where travelers who blab about their intentions to visit the West Bank are often subjected to extra scrutiny. One wonders how many Tel Aviv TSA officers would get the appeal of staying in a hotel that boasts of its terrible views of the wall dividing Palestine from Israel.

The hotels proximity to the wall provides both its name and its raison-detre. Banksy is marking the centenary of British control of Palestine by enticing visitors to educate themselves, using his customary humor and lack of polemic as the launching pad.

To that end, a museum and gallery on the premises will be open to the public, offering a warm welcome to people from all sides of the conflict and across the world. (...

A Lesson from the Aboriginal Book of Wisdom "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

By Sonya van Gelder

Guest  Writer for Wake Up World

When mob governs, man is ruled by ignorance; when the church governs, he is ruled by superstition; and when the state governs, he is ruled by fear.  Before men can live together in harmony and understanding, ignorance must be transmuted into wisdom, superstition into illuminated faith, and fear into love. ~  Manly P. Hall.
The Cross of Chains

As world events currently seem to be spiralling out of control, it is a reminder  of  how history repeats itself and raises the question of where mankind is failing and where we are heading.

To those who have stepped outside the box, so to speak, and removed themselves from the daily programming that takes place in our modern lives, it soon  becomes obvious that something is very very wrong. We as a people seem so far removed and ignorant of the natural laws our ancestors once held sacred.

We have become programmed and brainwashed by a greedy minority of people, whom have infiltrated our monetary system, our governments, our spirituality via the creation of religions and wars using the divide and conquer tact. A tactic used for thousands of years and one that can only lead to eventual destruction.

Through personal research over the past 20 or so years, it became quite obvious that history is just that HIStory. What we have learnt in modern day schools does not necessarily represent the true facts and events of our ancient past. It is little wonder the ancestors once used oral stories with  the aid of  metaphors to protect their ancient wisdom held sacred for thousands upon thousands of years, which all  seem to tell a similar story of our history and origins.

Many ancient sites and artefacts around the globe  have been uncovered over the years and prove beyond a doubt,  the existence of  ancient civilizations and cultures. Yet so much of this evidence is silenced and never quite makes it to the mainstream media or public sector. The old saying, those who win the war, write the history books couldnt be closer to the truth...

Mexikaner trinken gegen Trump. Anti G20 Soli-Schnaps in St. Paulis Kneipen "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Zum G20-Gipfel im Juli 2017 werden ziemlich viele Staatsoberhupter, unter anderem auch der us-amerikanische Prsident Donald Trump erwartet. Und dass damit nicht alle Hamburger einverstanden sind, versteht sich eigentlich von selbst. Die Protestplanungen fr den Sommer laufen bereits seit lngerem auf Hochtouren. Hamburg darf also ganz sicher mit viel kreativem Protest im Juli rechnen. Und die Vorbereitungen fr guten, kreativen Protest kosten natrlich einiges an Geld. Ein Rassist und Sexist wie Donald Trump ist auf St. Pauli nicht willkommen, sagt Bjrn Rosteck, Initiator der Soli-Schnaps-Aktion, hinter der unter anderem die Interventionistische Linke steckt. Der Soli-Mexikaner sei die Antwort auf Trumps Plne, an der Grenze zu Mexiko eine Mauer zu bauen. Quelle: mopo.de Um ein Zeichen zu setzen und gleichzeitig Geld fr den Protest zu sammeln, kann man nun in etlichen Kneipen in St. Pauli Mexikaner gegen den G 20 trinken. Die Einnahmen der Soliaktion flieen in die Proteste im Sommer gegen das politische Groereignis. Es sind bereits ber 20 Kneipen dabei, weitere werden ganz sicher noch folgen. Eine Liste mit allen Kneipen gibt es auf der eigens dafr eingerichteten Aktionsseite. Fr die, die Mexikaner Schnaps nicht kennen: Mexikaner ist ein scharfer Tomaten-Shot, der in fast allen Kneipen St. Paulis ausgeschenkt wird. Titelbild (symbolisch): bl0ndeeo2 (CC BY-ND 2.0)
