Search for Tomb in Mexican Pyramid Yields Strange Statues "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Picture
For hundreds of years in the first millennium, the ancient Mesoamerican city of Teotihuacn was one of the most impressive architectural marvels of its time. The city is arranged with massive stepped pyramids, broad avenues leading to temples and altars, and structures of unknown seemingly ritualistic purposes. The site lies just a few dozen kilometers away from what is today Mexico City and is considered one of the worlds great archaeological treasures.

Beer with a Painter: Peter Acheson "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Peter Acheson, Eva Hesse (2011-2015), oil, acrylic and collage on canvas, 12 x 16 inches (all photos by Charles Benton and courtesy Brennan & Griffin)

Peter Acheson, who lives in upstate New York, uses his living room as his winter studio. The hearth, which we sit around, is an old bookcase/hutch. He uses it as a provisional viewing station for paintings propping them up and rotating them on the shelves and along the floor as we talk. Its also where he keeps the sound system and a stack of CDs. The Stones or Dylan are usually on deck.  A paint-splattered tarpaulin lies in front of the bookcase, and chairs are pushed to the edges of the room. Jars of acrylic paint and yogurt containers filled with brushes are right on the floor; this is where he works.

Its a painting and rock n roll den, where art is the total, almost devotional focus; Acheson does not care about trading niceties or being ingratiating. He would rather propose and debate philosophical ideas. But hes been quoting poetry all day, ever since he met me in a caf in Hudson, where he was holding a copy of Robert Blys Eight Stages of Translation. We read Guillaume IX of Poitiers In the Great Sweetness of Spring together, and one passage in particular became a point of reference: Our love moves in this way: / like a branch of the hawthorn tree / I want my God to let me live / to have my hands beneath her cloak again

Home Remedies for Colon Cleansing

January 29th, 2016
The colon, a part of the digestive system, is responsible for extracting water, salt, vitamins and nutrients from indigestible food matter, processing food that was not digested in the small intestine, and eliminating solid waste from the body.

However, when it does not function properly, it begins to absorb toxins instead of eliminating them, thereby causing problems like headaches, bloating, constipation, gas, weight gain, low energy, fatigue, and chronic illnesses.

colon

These problems can also be caused by undigested foods (most foods that we eat today are loaded with additives, preservatives and other chemicals) that leads to buildup of mucus in the colon, producing toxins that poison the body.

However, with the help of colon cleansing, you can easily get rid of harmful toxins and promote healthy intestinal bacteria. It will also help increase your energy and improve the bodys absorption of vitamins and nutrients. There are many treatments available for colon cleansing. But for many people, the best options are simple, natural home remedies.

home remedies for Colon Cleansing

Here are the top 10 home remedies for colon cleansing. Before starting any colon cleansing program, consult your doctor for proper guidance, especially if you are taking any medications or suffering from any health condition.
1. Water

For colon cleansing, the best thing you can do is drink plenty of water. It is essential to drink at least 10 to 12 glasses of water in a day. Regular consumption of water will give your body the liquid and lubrication required to flush out the harmful toxins and waste from the body in a natural manner.

Drinking plenty of water will also stimulate the natural peristaltic action, helping the food to move through the digestive system. Also, water is essential to keep your body well hydrated. Along with water, you can also drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices.

2. Apple Juice

Fresh apple juice is one of the best home remedies for colon cleansing. Drinking apple juice regularly encourages bowel movements, breaks down toxins and improves the health of liver as well as the digestive system. Freshly squeezed apple juice provides the best results, but if it is not available, you can use packaged organic apple juice.

Start your day with one glass of unfiltered apple juice.
After 30 minutes, drink one glass of water.
Repeat this routine several times throughout the day and continue for three days. In between, you can also drink one glass of prune juice. When following this remedy, it is advisable to avoid solid foods.
3. Lemon Juice

Spotify Acquires Blockchain-Based Startup to Tackle Fair Royalty Issues "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Spotify, the $8 billion music streaming service provider, which is projected to reach 100 million users and a $53 billion valuation by 2020, acquired Mediachain, a startup backed by leading venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz, to simplify royalties utilizing bitcoins underpinning technology.In March, Spotify found itself amidst legal troubles with its partnered musicians, record labels and producers over unpaid royalties. According to the announcement of the National Music Publishers Association (NMPA), Spotify settled a $25 million deal and a $5 million penalty over unpaid and unmatched songs.Upon the settlement of the $30 million deal, Spotifys Global Head of Communications and Public Policy Jonathan Prince admitted that while the company has been committed in compensating its musicians and publishers since its launch in October of 2008, tracking all of its registered songs streamed by tens of millions of users and distributing royalties accurately and proportionally has been difficult.As we have said many times, we have always been committed to paying songwriters and publishers every penny. We appreciate the hard work of everyone at the NMPA to secure this agreement and we look forward to further collaboration with them as we build a comprehensive publishing administration system, Prince stated.At the time, NMPA President and CEO David Israelite emphasized that through the multimillion-dollar deal, music streaming service providers including Spotify will allocate more resources into compensating musicians and publishers transparently and properly. He further noted that NMPA and Spotify found the appropriate method of distributing royalties to music creators.I am thrilled that through this agreement both independent and major publishers and songwriters will be able to get what is owed to them. We must continue to push digital services to properly pay for the musical works that fuel their businesses and after much work together, we have found a way for Spotify to quickly get royalties to the right people. I look forward to all NMPA members being paid what they are owed, and I am excited about the creation of a better process moving forward, Israelite said.Spotifys recent acquisition of Mediachain represents a large part of the vision established with NMPA. By utilizing blockchain technology, which is transparent, immutable and irrefutable, Spotify aims to develop and integrate a more fair platform for musicians and publishers. For this reason, Spotify acquired media-and-information-sharing-focused blockchain infrastructure provider Mediachain.The Spotify development team explained that the engineers and developers of Mediachain will join Spotify in its New York offices to help co-build an efficient royalty-tracking platform specialized for Spotify.In an official statement, Spotify announced:Brooklyn-based Mediachain Labs has been...

Lets Talk Withdrawal Podcast "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Podcast? What podcast?

Being in antidepressant withdrawal, I had come to feel very isolated and alone recently. So much so that even the kind, lovely, supportive people in Facebook groups and my long-suffering family could give me little comfort. What I needed, I thought to myself, was to hear real experiences of people who, like me, have struggled with the very drugs that they believed were going to help them. So, off to iTunes I went. My search yielded a single interview, from January 2017, which I eagerly devoured. What then?

Fortunately, regular bouts of insomnia give me ample thinking time. Its time to create a podcast, I thought one that raises awareness of an issue that I believe is shared by many people but rarely spoken of.

Five years before this, I had hit the buffers. I was under a great deal of strain at work, I was a new father and I struggled with phobias. The result was that my anxiety became unmanageable and pretty soon I was unable to work and housebound with fear. Like many, hoping to escape my emotional distress, I visited my doctor and was given the standard lecture: You have a chemical imbalance, heres an antidepressant, its like insulin for a diabetic, youll have to take it for life. I walked away with the tablets not knowing what I was getting myself into. Its now five years later, and I am still on my antidepressant, although not by choice. I feel stuck and trapped, I have tried to withdraw but not been able to. I have asked for my doctors help, only to be told, There is no such thing as withdrawal.

This is primarily what led to me feeling so isolated and ignored. My response was to start campaigning to raise awareness about the number of people who struggle to stop taking their psychiatric drugs. First came a petition, then a few radio and TV interviews and, most recently, the podcast.

Lets Talk Withdrawal: the truth about antidepressant drugs and mental health

Launching a podcast seemed like a good fit for me in many ways, and a huge challenge in others. Prior to my difficulties, I was a keen musician, so I was familiar and comfortable with the technical side of audio arrangement and production. The challenge came when conducting interviews.

My first interview was with Professor John Read from the University of East London. I was terrified this was the biggest thing I have done for years and years. I wasnt at all professional, but Professor Read was gracious enough to answer my naive questions with authority and empathy.

Man Sells Golf Bill Hit By President Trump For $87,000 in eBay Auction "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

ATLANTA, Georgia  

An Atlanta man has reportedly sold a golf ball hit by President Trump during one of his many, many, many golf games from his first 100 days as president, for an astounding $86,985 in an eBay auction.

I was pretty surprised it went for so much. Its not signed or anything, just a regular Titleist, but it was hit into a sand trap by Donald Trump while I was watching him play a month or so ago, said the anonymous seller. He couldnt find it, so shrugged, told his caddy to mark it as a hole-in-one, and then left it. As soon as he and his entourage moved to the next hole, I went in and snagged it.

The seller says that he expected to fetch a few bucks, mostly as a gag, but was very surprised when two buyers drove up the price in a bidding war. He was even more surprised, he said, when the buyer actually paid.

He sent me a paypal payment of $86,985 and then another $4 for shipping costs, said the seller. I shipped it right out, then went and paid off my car and put down a huge chunk on my mortgage, too. Not bad considering I voted for Johnson.

And for more than half a century, the US has enabled it. In spite of threatening nuclear war on the world, most countries have never acted.

Rappers Talk Dirty: Future, Migos, Kodak Black, Cupcakke "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

If these past few months are any indication, 2017 is shaping up to be a terrific year for hip-hop better than 2016, I hope. Last years one unabashed triumph, A Tribe Called Quests monumental comeback We Got It from Here Thank You 4 Your Service, was so bright and clear-eyed, so joyous and inspirational, and such a spacey, bubbly slice of ear candy that it towered above everything else, making even decent exercises in hedonism by Travis Scott and Danny Brown sound rather limited. The following reviews represent my attempt to filter four impressive months of music into an illustrative sample.

Future: Hndrxx (A1/Freebandz/Epic)

Releasing two chart-topping albums in a week looks like creative exuberance and sounds like jaded exhaustion. Already a paragon of romantic murk, the Atlanta trap king slows down the tempos, sludgifies the textures, and further dilutes the crispness that lends his roboshtick appeal.

Starting around late 2014, Future began a now-infamous megaproductive streak, belching out albums, mixtapes, collaborations, what have you, at an absurd rate that belies the lifestyle portrayed on record, for if he spends all that time in the studio, when would he ever find time to pop pills in the strip club while shuddering over the worlds existential horror? His prolificacy impressed me in 2015 when it produced the crown jewel DS2, whose sharp, wintry chill matched his mechanized drone in demonstrating how pro forma wheel-spinning can reveal personal pain by implied omission. Now his beats gunk along at a zonked, atmospheric crawl. Beguiled by the affective fallacy, hes made several miscalculations in crafting his meticulously arranged musical vapor cloud; inducing hypnosis in a listener requires higher levels of energy and sonic thickness, because inducing anything in a listener requires aesthetic intensity of any sort. Instead, behold crunchy drums at half speed, ostinato synthesizer gradually dissipating, and a performer whose mumbled raps exhibit the stupor he wishes listeners would emulate. I distinguish Hndrxx from the self-titled Future, released a week earlier, by the fact that the terrific single and slinky electroflute banger Mask Off is on the latter, while the cheerfully bouncy Incredible and Testify are on the former. Otherwise, hes settled into a suffocatingl...

Waffle Pops Are a New Trendy Dessert Covered in Tasty Toppings "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Waffle Pops Sweet Combforts Waffle on a Stick Coachella Waffles Coachella Food Dessert

Following the popular food trend of cake pops, there's a new addition to the sweets-on-a-stick trend known as waffle pops. Created by California-based company Sweet Combforts, these sweets combine the handheld portability of lollipops with the crispy goodness of waffles. And perhaps best of all: no sticky hands!

Each compact treat is simply composed of a honeycomb-shaped waffle on a wooden stick. While the waffles are yummy as is (they are made with pearl sugar, which, according to Geoff Manila, the co-founder of Sweet Combforts, is like regular sugar on steroids), it is what coats, covers, and smothers them that has everyone talking. Sweet Combforts abandons traditional trimmings like maple syrup and butter for toppings that are a bit more outlandish. In addition to nostalgic cereals like Fruity pebbles and Cinnamon Toast Crunch, sprinkles, crushed cookies, and marshmallows are among the most popular add-ons.

Like many other trendy treats, Sweet Combforts recently made its grand debut at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. Don't worry if you weren't able to snag one of the sugary sweets, however, as the waffles will soon be a sweet staple at Trade Food Hall in Irvine, California. Keep an eye out for the Sweet Combforts' stand in May 2017.

Dolph Lundgren To Replace Bill Nye on New Netflix TV Series "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

dolph

LOS ANGELES, California  

After a series of memes was released online comparing the scientific background of TV host Bill Nye (The Science Guy) and action star Dolph Lundgren, Netflix has decided to replace Nye on his own show, Bill Nye Saves The World, with Lundgren.

We really wanted someone who knew what they were talking about, from a scientific perspective, when we decided to create this series, says Netflix representative Mario Jones. After it went online, though, many people began to complain that Nye was not qualified to host a series, at least not compared to Dolph Lundgren. We found it odd, but if theres one thing Netflix does right, its create shows people want to watch.

Although not 100% accurate (Lundgren studied chemistry at Washington State, but did not receive a degree from the school), this internet meme relates the qualifications of Bill Nye and Dolph LundgrenAlthough not 100% accurate (Lundgren studied chemistry at Washington State, but did not receive a degree from the school), this internet meme compared the qualifications of Bill Nye and Dolph Lundgren

To their credit, the internet is mostly right. Dolph Lundgren, best known for roles in the Rocky franchise and in The Expendables films, both co-starring Sylvester Stallone, does have an impressive scientific background, with multiple degrees in varying sciences. Lundgren, whose IQ is 160, says he is excited to host the show, but sad for Bill Nye.

I dont know the guy, he seems alright. He hosted a show for a long time, but back then, there was no internet, so it was hard for people to be so vocal and critical, said Lundgren. I hope that when I take over the show for the next season, people will be happy with the informati...

U.S. Government To Officially Recognize 287 Genders As Part of New Anti-Discrimination Laws "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

gender2

WASHINGTON, D.C.  

According to current laws, there are only two official genders that are legally protected in anti-discrimination laws male and female. It would be illegal to stop a man from working at Victoria Secret, no matter how weird it would be, for example. Its a legally protected right. That might be the most basic of the current rulings, but things are about to get a whole lot more complicated.

According to lawmakers, new anti-discrimination laws are currently being written, with the U.S. Government planning to add an additional 285 genders to their list, including binary, non-binary, gender fluid, gender queer, and many more. This is in a full attempt to make sure that everyone is included.

We just want to make sure that everyone, no matter how stupid their personal choice, is equally protected and represented by our laws and government, said representative John Miller, R Delaware. I personally think its retarded, but hey, what do I know? I figure whatever is between your legs right now, thats your gender. But a lot of little pansies are getting offended and triggered by that, so we have to make changes. My 16-year-old daughter now she identifies a genderless, binary, queeratron mecharobot, but with slightly gay tendencies and a hardcore drug problem. Fuck does that even mean? Thats not a gender.

Whether or not the people in charge of making the laws agree with them, at least they are making progress.

Yeah, were doing our best. My daughters stupid unicorn robot fuckingshit, Ive already forgotten. Whatever, that isnt being included specifically, but at least were making strides, I guess, said Miller. God, this is so stupid. Shes a girl, and Ill beat that notion right into her later.

The Spiritual Lover of the Inner Silence "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Frank M. Wanderer PhD; The Mind Unleashed

The world around us is too noisy, we are constantly surrounded by the murmur of the civilized world. We have almost completely forgotten today, how living a silent life in this noisy world could be. What secret could the silence have?

The mystery of silence becomes interesting for us when we become spiritual seekers. From that time on, we start looking for the essence of life, we wish to find an answer to the question:

Who am I, and what is my mission on this Earth?

We first look for the answer in the external world. We try to find an idea, an ideology and we identify with it in order to look for the answers to the questions that preoccupy us and cause that tormenting sense of want that spurred us to embark on a quest for answers.


After a lot of futile efforts we realize that no idea, ideology, teacher or master is able to provide us a satisfactory answer to those questions. We then turn inward, and start looking for the answers in ourselves.

Turning inwards requires quiet and tranquility from us, so silence becomes important for us from that time on. We find a quiet corner for ourselves where we are able to think and meditate without being disturbed. We leave behind civilization, go to the mountains, nature or the loneliness of a monastery.

EM1 Effective Microorganisms -- Gaia's Ancient "Biotech" Can Replace Every Toxic Cleaner and Restore Your Health, the Environment, and Humanity at The Same Time "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Microorganisms are nature's original terraformers. For billions of years, the tiniest creatures slowly transformed the face of the planet, turning toxic compounds into vital nutrients, making inorganic minerals bio-available and eventually forming the first macroscopic life forms (maintaining the environment in which they thrived). Today, these ancient ancestors of all life continue to perform this essential life-giving duty, within every habitat and organism on the planet. They are the ones that break down trash in landfills, clean water in waste treatment plants and bring nutrients to growing crops. They are the ambassadors to the world of minerals for the plant, animal, and fungal kingdoms. One intrepid human being rediscovered our long lost cousins, developing a world-saving product that we can use to restore our bodies, clean the environment, and bring life back to those places ravaged by pollution.

Then as now, viewers, prompted by simple written instructions, realize the sculptures by briefly enacting awkward, often humorous or humiliating, poses with repurposed everyday objects such as a desk, a bunch of pens, a bucket, or fruit. What has changed over time is the sculptures cultural, political, and artistic context. Where Wurm once documented the realized sculptures with a signed Polaroid, todays participants can now self-document and disseminate the work with technological speed that makes Polaroids seem at once prescient and quaint.

9 Powerful Life Lessons from Studying with a Monk "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Robert Piper; UPLIFT

You are Your Greatest Teacher

We have to find happiness within, and also find our purpose on the outside.

When I was 18 years old, I suffered from anxiety and stomach problems. A compassionate physician and practicing Buddhist referred me to a Taoist monk who specialized in meditation and martial arts. I ended up healing myself of anxiety and stomach issues by doing meditation, and went on a great journey of self-discovery.


Here are 9 lessons I learned while studying with a monk:

1. Keep Trying Until You Get It Right

The most important life lesson I learned was trying something three times (maybe even four times) before you stop trying and move on. Also, this monk taught me that, even after multiple tries, you should work on different angles to approach things that are difficult.

Amazon Wants You to Put Their New Camera in Your Bedroom "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Daniel Lang; The Daily Sheeple

Products like the Amazon Echo are proof of a strange new shift in our culture. Suddenly people are okay with having a device in their homes that they know is listening to them. Theyre voluntarily inserting electronic devices into their private lives, which are capable of spying on them and sending the data to private corporations and governments.

At some point our society accepted the idea that trading our privacy for a minor convenience is totally worth it, which is something that would surely be mind-blowing to previous generations. However, that social acceptance is about to be pushed to a whole new level. Today, Amazon introduced a new device to their Echo line of products, called the Echo Look.


Its basically a camera that you stick in your bathroom or your bedroom or wherever you dress, and it takes full length images of what youre wearing. Its being called a style assistant. It has a service that combines machine learning algorithms with advice from fashion specialists, presumably to give you feedback on what youre wearing. Im guessing that at some point, itll make suggestions for clothes you should buy on Amazon.

One hundred years ago this month, President Woodrow Wilson announced the entry of the United States into World War I. The announcement signaled the arrival of the US onto the world stage, and with Congresss vote on April 6, 1917 to declare war on Germany, theres been no turning back from US involvement in international wars, from the development of increasingly lethal and destructive weaponry, or from its mounting human carnage.

Wounded Man (Autumn 1916, Bapaume), from Dixs portfolio of 50 etchings, The War (Der Krieg), shows a brutal reality that lays waste to Bushs anesthetized vision of war wounds.

Representing the moment of impact on the battlefield, Wounded Man (Autumn 1916, Bapaume) is an index of physical pain. A soldier collapses diagonally across the picture plane, dissolving into a gray textured surface punctuated by stark patches of black and white, with sprays of acid spots surrounding the figure. The mans gaping mouth and crooked, bug-eyed stare reduces any potential battlefield narrative into a moment of panic.

The image evokes the fragmentation of space and spatial disorientation experienced by soldiers at war. The reflexivity between the collapsing body and the crumbling earth on...

Autisms Drug Problem "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Scientific American: Many autistic children are prescribed multiple psychiatric medications, which can lead to serious adverse effects and are often ineffective.

Multiple diagnoses lead to drug cocktails, but no clinical trials have tested combinations of the most commonly used medications, so potential drug-drug interactions are unknown. Every drug has side effects, and when you start to mix them together youre looking at something thats not been studied, King says. And in autism, where you might have communication impairments, its even more worrisome because people are less likely to be able to tell you that your medicines are making them feel sick.'

Why Slashing the NIH Budget is Indefensible "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this op-ed for The Washington Post, Katrina vanden Heuvel critiques President Trumps plan to cut funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by nearly $6 million.

When news of the proposed NIH cuts broke, scientists expressed fear about the far-reaching implications. In addition to biomedical research conducted at NIH headquarters in Maryland, more than 80 percent of the NIH budget is used to fund research at universities and other institutions nationwide. In many cases, NIH grants account for most of a laboratorys funding, and they often drive follow-on contributions from other sources. In 2016, for example, NIH distributed more than $23.5 billion in grants to support research on everything from cancer to Alzheimers to mental health to blindness.

Ninth Day of Tour Marks 15th Straight Day of Taco Bell "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

GAS CITY, Ind. The ninth day of a Midwestern loop for touring band Kings of Ithaca was also the 15th consecutive day for each band member of dining at popular fast food chain Taco Bell, sources close to the band confirmed.

I was so busy getting the EPs together, Taco Bell was all I had time for, said bassist/van driver Mike Georgopoulos while one-handing a Spicy Triple-Double Crunchwrap. So, yeah, I guess this is day 15 and counting.

Guitarist Andre Constantine offered measured praise for the Mexican-inspired restaurant, citing the groups prior history of investment in the brand.

I mean, we already have these big-ass refill cups anyway, said Constantine between Cheesy Gordita Crunch bites. And the food is totally, pretty much, basically alright. Im hungry before I eat it and not hungry after I eat it. I cant ask for much more than that.

Drummer Troy Meadows most recently opted for a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito, which was largely spilling out the wrong end of the tortilla into his lap.

Its always exactly the same everywhere we go, said Meadows, at which point the group fell silent, slurping a collective 120 ounces of Baja Blast as the sun set on I-65.

Day nine of the tour also marked the bands fourth day waking up in a parking lot, their eighth day without showering, and their sixth day without selling a single EP. Members of the band admitted the recent discovery of a booking error would also force them to drive across Indiana three separate times.

Georgopoulos, who drove through the night, quietly reflected on the uncertain legacy of Taco Bell in their lives. I used to fucking love Taco Bell back in high school, he said softly. But now, I just take it for granted. I dont know if I even like Taco Bell anymore. Maybe Im changing. Their six fucking ingredients sure arent.

As dawn broke on the tenth day, however, witnesses report the Kings of Ithaca tour van suddenly swerved across two lanes to catch Exit 247, to return to the Taco Bell in Crown Point.

Breakfast is on me today, motherfuckers, Georgopoulos fervently announced. Not because its any damn good, but because Im...

ReadyNutrition Readers, youre well aware of the importance of family continuity after some kind of a disaster and event.  Thats what survival is all about in a nutshell.  Along the way, dont forget about the pets in the family.  Some are going to pose a problem, such as the more exotic types that need special care.  Examples of these would be tropical fish, birds, and reptiles, as most of these need special types of water, temperature, and/or food to sustain them.  The specialty requirements for these types of pets are outside of the scope of this articles abilities.

The Prepared Dogs and Cats

Most of us have dogs and cats.  Let us cover their merits.  Dogs have been serving mankind for thousands of years, and for many different purposes.  I absolutely hated the movie, The Day After, where the farm family left the dog outside of the cellar to die.  I submit to you that this was a poor choice and absolutely unnecessary.  In the end, the farmer was shot by a squatter on his property, and if the dog had been aroundwell, bare minimum he could have alerted the man to the intruder.

Dogs will be useful for the family to help protect them, either as an early warning sentry or to directly intercede with an antagonist.  Here are some of the best dog breeds to have for a shtf disaster. Dogs are proven (as with most pets) to be very therapeutic and stress-relieving.  Cats, too, have a use besides just hunting down rodents.  In addition to relieving the stress, I tell you from experience: watch your cat and its reactions for an early-warning device.  They will hear, see, and smell something that approaches before you do.  Although they dont bark, if you train yourself to watch them, youll be...

MSM And The Dairy Industry Attack Clean Eating As Dangerous "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

By Alex Pietrowski

As more information comes to light about both the horrors of dairy industries practices in producing cows milk, and the negative health effects of consuming dairy products, more people are rejecting dairy in their diets, and mainstream media is now working to convince people that such dietary choices are dangerous.

In a recent article, the Telegraph attacks what they refer to as clean eating, aiming to spook readers into believing that modern dietary choices which reject processed foods and foods known to be harmful to many people are, again, dangerous.

A cult of clean eating is a ticking timebomb that could leave young people with weak bones, the National Osteoporosis Society has warned.

The diets have become increasingly fashionable, and are associated with a number of celebrities, who have boasted how they have cut out gluten, dairy, grains and refined sugars. [Source]

Professor Susan Lanham-New, Clinical Advisor to the National Osteoporosis Society and Professor of Nutrition at the University of Surrey remarked:

Without urgent action being taken to encourage young adults to incorporate all food groups into their diets and avoid particular clean eating regimes, we are facing a future where broken bones will become just the norm. [Source]

In a somewhat more balanced article by the BBC a warning is issued about diets that skip out on dairy products. Dairy-free diets warning over risk to bone health, reads the headline, which cites a survey by the National Osteoporosis Society expressing concern that people under 25 arent getting enough calcium in their diets.

It said it was concerned many young adults were putting their health at risk by following eating fads. [Source]

The primary argument presented in both of these articles is that dairy products are the best source of calcium, and if young people arent consuming substantial...

Risk Of Nuclear War Growing, Accidents Inevitable New UN Report "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Image source: Pixabay.com

The risk of an accidental nuclear war is increasing and likely to grow in the years ahead. Thats the conclusion of Understanding Nuclear Weapons, a new report from the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNDIR).

The complexity of interactions in the tightly coupled systems linked to the management and operation of nuclear stockpiles make accidents inevitable, the report states.

A simple sensor malfunction or computer glitch can trigger the launch or detonation of nuclear weapons, the report says. The danger from nuclear weapons is increasing for a wide variety of reasons, some of which have little to do with politics.

The UNDIR experts believe the danger of an accidental nuclear war is greater than at any time since the end of the Cold War in 1991 and that the danger will continue growing. Understanding Nuclear Weapons provides several reasons to be concerned about

With The Peoples Climate March Approaching, Activist Bill McKibben Calls Environmentalists To Action

From the Speech by Bill McKibben, Northampton Community College, April 21, 2017

One of the countrys leading environmentalists made a stop in the Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, stressing the importance of civil disobedience in the fight against climate change. Bill McKibben, who has authored over a dozen books on the subject, spoke at Northampton Community College just three days before Earth Day to bum people out about the current state of the environment.

McKibben opened up with a damning picture of a world with continual droughts and floods, melting ice caps, rising ocean acidity and dying coral reefsan image of the Earth that is clear in 2017, but still dispelled by skeptics who refuse to acknowledge the most daunting problem in human existence.

These conditions, he said, are a direct effect of the planets rising temperature.

Thats what happens when you raise the temperature of the planet one degree Celsius, thats what weve done so far, McKibben said. We are on track at the moment in the lifetime of the kids who are at school here now, to raise the temperature of the planet about three and a half degrees Celsius. If we allow that to happen, we cannot have civilizations like the ones were are used to having.

The last time temperatures were that high, sea levels were many tens of meters higher than they are now, he continued. The great cities of the world, most of which are built on the coast, are already at tremendous risk even with a couple of feet of sea level rise. They cannot sustain whats coming unless we slow things down.

Toxic runoff from industries, improper disposal of medications and agricultural runoff from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and large factory farms all contribute to a severe water pollution problem.

Not only are groundwater aquifers rapidly depleting, but much of the world's water supply has become too contaminated to drink or bathe in. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly two billion people don't have safe drinking water.2

New Technologies Offer Hope in Creating a More Transparent and Sustainable Food System "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Modern-day food practices are reliant on a series of unsustainable methods including fossil fuels and chemical-dependent genetically engineered (GE) organisms that pollute Earth's valuable resources such as our air, soil and water, as well as damage public health.

Our current food system, heavily treated with crop chemicals, is linked to myriad health problems including food allergies, gluten intolerance, gut and neurological dysfunction, immunodeficiency disorders and more.

Making healthy food choices is incredibly important, but can be a daunting task due to the extreme disconnect many of us have with the food we eat, as illustrated in the featured documentary "Digital Food."

'Food has Become a Black Box'

Food journalist Michael Pollan, who's authored many books and articles explaining how nature and culture intersect on our plates and in our farms and gardens,1 says not knowing where our food comes from creates a vicious cycle of unhealthy choices that results in sickness and disease not only for humans, but our planet too.

"Food has become a black box," says Pollan. "When you're buying a pound of hamburger, you know very little. You don't even know what kind of animal it is."

Most of the time, consumers have little to no details about the food they eat, including how the animal lived, where it came from, what it ate or how long ago it was slaughtered, says Pollan, who through his many thought-provoking books has educated millions about the downfalls of our current food system.

"It's always been my conviction that the more people know about how their food is produced, the better choices they will make," says Pollan.

"That can be very disruptive to the food industry," he adds while being interviewed in the featured film, which explores the potential new technologies have in bringing transparency to our food system.

Two Children in Every US Classroom Have Food Allergies

About 90 percent of the money Americans spend on food goes to buy processed food. What's worse, new research shows that, astonishingly, more than half nearly 60 percent, in fact of the food Americans eat is ULTRA-processed meaning the food could be purchased at a gas station.

The implications of this, in terms of public health, stretch far and wide. Researchers estimate that about 15 million Americans now have...

Scientists Have Turned Spinach Into Beating Human Heart Tissue "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Packed with nutrients but low in calories, spinach is a healthy addition to salads, smoothies and vegetable juice. Similar to other dark-green leafy vegetables, spinach is packed with vitamins A, B2, B6, C, E and K, as well as calcium, folate, iron, magnesium and manganese.

Studies have shown spinach supports your cardiovascular health, eyesight and immune system, as well as numerous other bodily functions.

While its long been known the magnesium in spinach can help lower your blood pressure, thereby benefiting your cardiovascular health, until recently, scientists may have vastly underestimated the benefits of spinach to your heart.

In surprising new research, scientists have successfully grown beating human-heart cells on decellularized spinach leaves. This work represents a first step toward potentially developing a plant-based patch surgeons could one day use to help repair damage caused by a heart attack.

As unusual as this research sounds, spinach leaves contain one of the key ingredients to assist with blood and oxygen transport in the human body: a well-developed vascular network.

Are Spinach Leaves a Possible Solution to the Lack of Donor Organs?

While you may not have given much thought to the similarities between the physical properties of a spinach leaf and your heart, researchers at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) have made a careful study1 of both as a means of addressing a lack of donor organs in the U.S.

They have taken a particular interest in the naturally occurring veins on spinach leaves, which mirror the pattern of blood vessels threading through your heart. The goal is to one day use spinach and/or other plant-based materials to repair your heart after a heart attack.

As strange as this body of work may seem, WPI scientists are encouraged by their early findings. They are taking bold steps toward one day using the well-developed vascular network found on spinach leaves to deliver blood, oxygen and nutrients inside the human body.

According to The Washington Post, the inspiration for using spinach leaves occurred over a lunch discussion about organ donation involving Glenn Gaudette, Ph.D., WPI professor of biomedical engineering, and Joshua Gershlak, a WPI doctoral student in biomedical engineering:2

Bering Sea Elders Group Condemns President Trumps Revocation of Critical Bering Sea Executive Order, as Alaska Delegation Stands By "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published April 29, 2017

WASHINGTON  the Bering Sea Elders Group yesterday released the following statement in response to Fridays Executive Order signed by President Donald Trump:

Today, President Trump, flanked by Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan and Representative Don Young, revoked a critically important Executive Order that we, 40 of Alaskas coastal Tribes, had drafted and advocated for.  Executive Order 13754: Northern Bering Sea Climate Resilience, issued by President Obama on December 9, 2016, was the product of years of tireless work by local Alaskans, Tribes, and nonprofits whowhen faced with the devastating effects of climate change and the dramatic increase of large scale shipping right on our front doorstepsought to create a way for us to have a say in what happens in and to our waters.  The key component of Order 13754 was the creation of the Bering Sea Intergovernmental Tribal Advisory Council.  This Council gave us, local Alaskans who use the waters of the Bering Sea every day, a say in how the federal government managed those waters.

Today, the President took that away, along with all the other key components of the Order, including a provision to include traditional knowledge in federal decision-making.  Now there is no seat at the table for Alaskans or our local knowledge.  Alaskas own congressional delegation stood by as local Alaskan voices were removed from decisions that affect our lives, and now we are at the mercy of federal decision-makers only.  This does not benefit Alaska.  Rather, it only benefits the federal government and private interests who will financially benefit from silencing our voices and taking or polluting the resources that we, as Alaskans, rely on.

It is not clear why Order 13754, created and advocated for by Alaskans, was even revoked.  Order 13754 was not part of the Arctic Ocean Order that todays Order purported to target, and there is no oil or even leases in the waters covered by Order 13754.  Despite this, a special paragraph, Section 4(c), was created in todays Order specifically to target Order 13754.  There can be no other conclusion other than Alaskas Tribes, and coastal Alaskans in particular, were targeted and silenced.  The message is clear: the agendas of the existing re...

Navajo Nation President Begaye Thanks JOM Programs for Keeping Native Languages Vital "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

During the NJOMA conference held at the Albuquerque Marriott, President Russell Begaye reinforced the importance of teaching traditional languages to young students.

Published April 29, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE On Thursday, Apr. 27, Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye acknowledged Native American educators as protectors of culture in their efforts to help Native American students retain and revitalize tribal languages.

The president presented the keynote address at the National Johnson OMalley Association (JOM) conference held today at the Albuquerque Marriott in Albuquerque, N.M.

We need to make sure that we protect the JOM programs within schools as they open the door to language revitalization efforts and place value on our traditional cultures, President Begaye said.

The JOM Act of 1934 authorized contracts for the education of eligible Indian students enrolled in public schools and previously private schools. Local JOM programs contain educational objectives addressing the needs of the eligible American Indian and Alaska Native students.

JOM programs offered to American Indian and Alaskan Native students include programs of culture, language, academics and dropout prevention.

If you want your child to succeed at the highest level, while theyre young, teach them Navajo and English, President Begaye said. Our language provides our children a different perspective of the world, which is very different and beneficial.

President Begaye also encouraged public and BIA schools to make sure the meals provided to students are healthy and not fatty. To address this, the president has advocated to the U.S. Department of Agriculture to assist the Navajo Nation in regionalizing food distribution to local schools.

We need to have the traditional foods we grow integrated into our public school food programs. Our schools should have grass fed Navajo sheep on the menus for our school children as well, he said.

JOM programs in schools on and bordering the Navajo Nation have implement programs like: Navajo Spelling Bee, Navajo Knowledge Bowl and an Integration of Din Content Standards.

The president thanked the gathered educators for their highlighting traditional cultures into their curriculums.

The 25 Rules of Disinformation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Isaac Davis, Staff Writer
Waking Times 

We are in the post-constitutional era in the United States, a time when the government does whatever it wants to whomever it wants, and there is not a thing anyone can do about it.

How it is possible that the president can bomb a foreign country or threaten a full-scale international war without so much as even mentioning the need for Congress to chime in, let alone actually vote on a declaration of war?

The short answer is, disinformation and propaganda, which is the domain of mainstream media. When people are confused, when truth is hidden, when agendas are presented as life or death options, and when the public has no clue about which laws government is bound to, then anything goes.

Regarding disinformation, the following list of 25 rules of disinformation is from Twenty-Five Ways To Suppress Truth: The Rules of Disinformation (Includes The 8 Traits of A Disinformationalist) by H. Michael Sweeney, and offers a comprehensive way of processing information in a time of universal deceit.

Baby Lambs Successfully Grown In Artificial Womb Are Humans Next? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Credit: Childrens Hospital of Philadelphia

When babies are born prematurely, they can incur all sorts of health problems depending on how early they are born, and many of these issues can either cause their death within their first few years of life or lead to a painful existence marked by hospital visits and medication. According to the World Health Organization, 15 million babies are born prematurely in the world every year, and its the leading cause of death amongst children under five. About one million premature human babies die annually, but this could all change with a new development by researchers.

Scientists with the Childrens Hospital of Pennsylvania have developed an artificial womb that replicates the activities of the uterus and placenta and has already worked with great success in growing a lamb fetus into a baby. In the tests, scientists were able to keep eight extremely premature lamb fetuses alive for four weeks in their womb and observed that their lungs and brains grew, sprouted wool, opened their eyes, wriggled around, learned to swallow, and had what appeared to be normal organ functioning after close examination.

Weve developed a system that, as closely as possible, reproduces the environment of the womb and replace the function of the placenta, lead author Dr. Alan Flake told New Scientist. Its complete science fiction to think that you can take an embryo and get it through the early developmental process and put it on our machine without the mother being the critical element there.

Jeff Sessions to Pacific Islanders: Your Lives Are Worthless "IndyWatch Feed Education"

By Bill Bigelow

Speaking on a conservative talk radio show last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions denounced a decision issued by Derrick K. Watson, a federal judge in Hawaii, blocking Trumps Muslim travel ban: I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and constitutional power.

In one sentence, Sessions turned island and Pacific into swear words, and expelled Hawaii from the United States. Presumably, for Sessions, had the judge been sitting someplace in the real world, someplace that matters, like St. Louis or Dallas, that might have been home to a more credible challenge to Trumps travel ban. But an island in the Pacific? Contemptuous.

Sessions sneering remark must feel familiar to so many Pacific Islanders whose lands and lives have been the playthings of imperial powersespecially the United States. It reveals an attitude which, in the shadow of the climate crisis, has genocidal implications.

No Jail Time for Non-Native Man who Terrorized Water Protectors at Bismarck Hotel "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Jesse Dean McLain

Published April 28, 2017

BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA Jesse Dean McLain, a Bismarck non-Native man, who was charged with two Class C felony charges of terrorizing for water protectors last December at the Ramada Inn in Bismarck, North Dakota, has signed a plea that will keep him from serving jail time.

McLain agreed to plead guilty to two Class A misdemeanor counts of menacing from an incident that occurred on December 5, 2016 in the parking lot of the hotel. The water protectors had been at Standing Rock protesting the Dakota Access pipeline.

He was arrested last December after he was seen wearing a mask in a Facebook video threatening to sexually assault the water protectors wives and threatening them with obscenities.

The deal was filed in Burleigh County District Court allowed a one-year jail sentence to be suspended, if McLain successfully completes a year of probation and attends an anger management program.

Mashpee Wampanoag Work Toward Decision on Tribes Trust Land Status "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

 

First Light Resort & Casino rendering

Published April 28, 2017

MASHPEE, MASSACHUEETTS The Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe announced today that it hopes to fully remobilize construction crews in Taunton, Massachusetts this summer for its $1 billion First Light Resort & Casino project and have doors open by summer 2018.

The Tribes announcement comes on the heels of information from the U.S. Interior Department that it will issue a new decision on the historic Tribes land status on or before June 19, 2017.

We are confident that an amended ROD (Record-Of-Decision) from the Interior Department will reaffirm what has already been well-established and documented: we have lived on this land for thousands of years and it is only right that we remain, Mashpee Wampanoag Tribal Council Chairman Cedric Cromwell said.

We are ready to deliver over 7000 jobs, tens of millions of dollars in critical traffic infrastructure improvements, and hundreds of millions of dollars towards urban renewal in a region of Massachusetts that so desperately needs it, Chairman Cromwell said.

The initial ROD that re-established reservation land for the Mashpee tribe was issued by DOI in September 2015 under what is known as Category 2 of the Indian Reorganization Act living continuously on an existing reservation. Shortly after that decision, a group of anti-Indian activists with out-of-state funders in East Taunton filed a suit challenging the DOIs authority to take land in trust under Category 2.

Although federal district court Judge William Young initially ruled against Category 2 as an independent basis to take land into trust, the judge later ruled that the DOI could revise the initial ROD to include Category 1, which establishes that the Tribe was under federal jurisdiction before 1934, the year the Indian Reorganization Act was enacted.

Earlier this month the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear any further appeals on the legality of DOIs issuance of a Category 1 ROD for the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, essentially securing the legal basis for Mashpees own Category 1 eligibility.

The firm date provided by the Department of Interior puts any false claims about further delays to rest.  We recognize that the Interior has a rigorous review process, but the June date at least gives us certainty there will be a decis......

Flint, Michigan Begins Having Tap Water Imported From Mexico "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

FLINT, Michigan  

Residents of Flint, Michigan have begun having been having their water imported from other states for quite some time, as the situation of their own water has been disasterous. But now, some residents have begun looking even further away, and are having their water imported from across the border in Tijuana.

Our water is so bad, that Mexican tap water looks like crystal-clear spring water in comparison, said Flint resident Mario Jones. I can get about 50 gallons of Mexican tap water for about $5, which is a lot cheaper than here. Sure, it still gives me the shits, but thats par for the course now. At least it doesnt look like sewage.

Mexico has been grateful for the business, with several companies across the border saying that they thought they would NEVER have use for tap water.

Our water, it was muy disgustingo, said Pedro Martinez. But when I heard about the hydro crisis in Flint, I thought it was a good idea to start up a new company, and get them the water that they need. So I fill up about 200 gallon bottles a week, and I drive them into Arizona, where it can be shipped much cheaper. Its a great deal for me. My family has lots of extra pesos now.

Babysitter Takes Acid, Eats 3-Month-Old Baby After Cooking Her In The Oven "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

DE SOTO, Missouri

Two Missouri parents were horrified to discover their babysitter had taken acid while watching their child, after they found the remains of their three-month-old child cooked in the oven.

Police Officer Dwayne Jacobs was the first on the scene, and found a very confused and incoherent babysitter lying half-conscious in the familys living room.

Anna Doreen, the 17-year-old babysitter, claims she had bought some acid and only took a few tabs before she became overly confused and extremely hungry.

I just took a few tabs  because I was bored and the baby was sleeping, she later told Officer Jacobs. I remember that I started getting really hungry, ate some chicken wings, and passed out.

The 3-month-old child was found in the oven, covered in barbecue sauce, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

It appears she tried to cook him in the oven, but did not time it long enough to completely cook him. She was probably disoriented and lost consciousness moments later, explained Sheriff deputy James Anderson of the Jefferson County Police Department. Teeth marks were found on the babys arms and legs. Ms. Doreen has been taken into custody and is facing second-degree murder charges, as well as drug-related charges.

Revised GOP Health Care Bill Would Still Undermine Funding for Indian Health "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Guest Commentary

Published April 28, 2017

Speaker Paul Ryan said House Republicans are close to a deal that would allow them to pass the American Health Care Act. He says this is because of improvements suggested by President Donald J. Trump.

Lets be clear about these so-called improvements: The bill would still wipe out Medicaid as we know it. Medicaid represents 13 percent of the Indian Health Service budget (or $808 million). Now. It could produce even more revenue as more states opt into the plan and more American Indians and Alaska Natives sign up for that public insurance program. This is how the Indian health system reaches full-funding one day.

(Previous: Three ways to add money to Indian health.)

Mark Trahant

Ryan tweeted that the idea behind the new bill is to give the states the ability to kind of customize the reforms to maximize the ability to lower premiums. And the method for that is to allow states to walk away from requiring essential services. The result would be people who have insurance policies that do not cover what would be covered under the Affordable Care Act. This weakens the idea of protecting people from insurance companies that use pre-existing conditions to limit or exclude coverage.

Thats the debate that is taking center state right now. But for Indian Country the bigger concern ought to be Medicaid, Medicaid and Medicaid.

There is much activity taking place in Antarctica and discoveries are being made that will alter your history that barely covers your true Human development. There are very interesting finds such as the bodies of extremely tall Beings, frozen exactly where they were when the freeze came upon them. They came from a period many, many thousands of years ago and it is not intended that you should get to see them.

However, the toughest times on Earth are the ones that give the best opportunities to overcome much karma, and progress to a higher dimension.

A Montana Roman Catholic diocese has filed for bankruptcy following a court ruling finding the church guilty in over 400 cases of child sex abuse.
Church officials confirmed that the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings is unable to settle the lawsuits that have been so far been filed by 72 of the victims of pedophilia at the hands of Catholic priests.
This is the second diocese in Montana to file for bankruptcy over child abuse lawsuits in less than three years, with the total number of cases of sex abuse by priests, nuns and church volunteers reaching a staggering 760 victims since 2014 in Montana alone, with payouts from lawsuits in the tens of millions.
None of the accused in the cases are expected to face criminal charges for the sex abuse crimes, due to a large number of the culprits now being deceased, and the church traditionally handles such cases internally, with discipline usually involving a priest being relocated to a different church.
The Diocese of Great Falls-Billings said it expected to make the Chapter 11 reorganization filing, and the diocese and i...

Earth News: Unique phenomenon from around the World | +Cool Pics! ~ MrMBB333 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Note: The anomaly over the Pacific was first reported last Saturday. Very late that evening, around 3am I was still awake in bed, playing with my cat. All of a sudden there was a shift in energy accompanied by a loud tone/hum and vibration that came over the area.Right before it happened my dog woofed and immediately afterward the cat looked around the room and then jumped up to the window to see what was going on outside. The sound and vibration lasted about 1/2 hour before it subsided. Was the anomaly related to this wave? I have absolutely no idea

HAYNE FORMERLY BLED BLUE FOR ORIGIN BUT NOW SEEKS TO BLEED A WEIRD PURPLY COLOUR

HAYNE FORMERLY BLED BLUE AT ORIGIN TIME BUT NOW SEEKS TO BLEED A WEIRD PURPLY COLOUR

Jarryd Hayne has shocked NSW selectors by declaring he would like to make himself eligible for Queensland in the upcoming State of Origin series.

Hayne made the announcement after an intensive training session with the Boomers this morning.

Ive been giving it a lot of thought and I would like to keep challenging myself and play against the Blues rather than with them this year, Hayne told reporters.

I need to keep setting myself new goals and throwing myself out of my comfort zone I need to dedicate my unwavering loyalty to a new sporting team regularly otherwise what am I doing all this for?

The news is a major blow to Laurie Daley and his men who were counting on the Hayne Plane to reverse the Blues fortunes this year.

This is tough news for us because he is a great player, Daley told NRL360.

Our only hope is that Jarryd takes the offer to keep wicket for the Delhi Daredevils and creates a scheduling conflict.

In breaking news, Jarryd Hayne has signed for the Kolkata Knight Riders, devastating the Delhi Daredevils who were hoping to secure his services.

Labour offers M&S delivery "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In what, is seen, as a deliberate attempt to pander to aspiring voters, Jeremy Corbyn has promised home delivery of all their favourite middle-class treats; such as artisanal breads, free-range olives and a sense of moral superiority. By contrast, Theresa May has said that she will continue to provide Brexit picknmix and her own brand of S&M.

With hand-grown produce from his own allotment, Mr. Corbyn is hoping to offer something more exciting than Mrs. Mays jam tomorrow. Marks & Spencer will guarantee to deliver Labour promises to your doorstep in a small van, as opposed to Conservative promises on a large bus.

With Labour you will need to recycle your plastic bags, along with any socialist policy from the 1980s but that may still be more appealing than voting for Mrs. May, thus being stuck with the horrible bag for life.

Like M&S, a Corbyn Government will feel a bit self-indulgent a luxury. Although Mrs. May says the Tories are the natural party of posh nosh, or as one shopper observed: Rich? That does sound pretty richcoming from someone who makes us use food banks.

This message was inspired by Earth Day and Buddhas birthday Mother Earth in jeopardy and refugee crises abound, are you beginning to feel it is surreal? Corporate interests increase their militaristic stranglehold on every available aspect of life itself, and we still dont know what time it is. Time to go the other way.

People worldwide are activating toward a mission so great, its hard to explain. Its not from one discipline, but all of them. Solutions are being applied globally at a promising rate (And I dont mean anything that would keep us asleep face down in the main stream). Heres to all the indigenous people holding it down, the protectors, innovators, natural farmers, and anyone doing anything to truly improve their lives. And remember the battles and magic that must happen inside each of us in these times in order to shift humanity. Dont believe the hype. We can live longer healthier lives by actively improving the ecosystems of Earth. Time to get into nature.

All options for responding to future provocations must remain on the table, Tillerson had said earlier in the day. Diplomatic and financial leverage or power will be backed up by willingness to counteract North Korean aggression with military action, if necessary.
The US official said the projectile was a probable KN-17, a medium-range ballistic missile, launched from Pukchang airfield. A White House statement Friday evening said the administration was aware of the test and that the President had been briefed.

Alfred Hitchcock, Psycho and the Question of Madness "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

41LSGyt5K9LOn the 29th of April 1980, Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock died aged 80 in Bel Air, California. Justifiably crowned with the title of the master of suspense, he produced and directed some of the most iconic films in the history of world cinema. The magazine MovieMaker, for example, has described him as the most influential filmmaker of all time. Therefore, it is hard to believe that prior to the 1960s majority of American film critics and scholars refused to rank Hitchcocks films as serious art, mostly for the fact that the thriller genre had not been treated as artistically significant at the time. Since the 1930s until the early 1960s Hitchcock was perceived more as a master craftsman rather than a serious artist. Even such a memorable film as Vertigo, first released in 1958, had to wait for its much deserved reappraisal until the beginning of the 1980s, when it was selected by a group of international film critics as one of the top ten films of all time.

The real breakthrough in Hitchcocks career came with the 1960 classic Psycho; alth...

SUNRISE EMPLOYS HANSON AS CULTURAL AFFAIRS REPORTER "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

DELIGHTED TO JOIN THE LONG TRADITION OF QUALITY NEWS GATHERING AT SUNRISE SAYS HANSON

DELIGHTED TO JOIN THE PROUD TRADITION OF QUALITY NEWS GATHERING AT SUNRISE SAYS HANSON

Channel Sevens Sunrise program has today announced the appointment of Pauline Hanson as its expert reporter on Australian cultural issues, citing a need to beef up its sheltered white viewership.

Our ratings were beginning to drop sharply in the crucial anti-vaxxer and xenophobe demographic so pulling Pauline into the team was an easy choice for us, Executive Producer Sean Hannity told The Fault Report.

The shows resident angry bald man David Koch has also welcomed the news.

Pauline basically lives here anyway, so formalising the relationship and making her a bonafide reporter makes a lot of sense, Koch stated this morning on Sunrise.

Its actually not that difficult to be a Sunrise reporter anyway to tell you the truth, you simply need a camera, a mouth, and good lighting a natural acute ignorance generally takes care of the rest.

To celebrate the announcement, Sunrise gifted Ms Hanson a haram-certified sponge cake with 50 shades of white icing sugar baked into every layer.

Pauline Hanson was delighted to both take on the role and eat the entire cake on live television this morning.

Thank you so much Sunrise, Ive never tasted anything whiter, I honestly feel more ayran with every slice, a gleeful Ms Hanson said in between mouthfuls of sweet white plume.

Worm Eats Plastic Is This Really Good for The Earth? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

caterpillar plastic

By Heather Callaghan, Editor

You may have seen passing headlines that a caterpillar was recently discovered to eat plastic. But take a look there is more than meets the eye about the eco-fuzzy hooklines.

The worldwide use of one trillion plastic bags each year is obviously causing a problem especially for ocean life. Eighty million tons (metric) of polyethylene are produced annually and can take centuries to biodegrade.

The humble wax worm a little larvae that hatches from bee hives was only recently discovered to ravenously chew through plastic.

Federica Bertocchini, a researcher and amateur bee keeper, removed the pesky wax worms from her hives. (Apparently, wax is a polymer, a sort of natural plastic, and has a chemical structure not dissimilar to polyethylene, she had said.) When she temporarily placed them in a grocery bag to clean the hives, her actions led to her chance discovery.** Essentially, they ran amok all over her house

Making a Striped Cotton Dress, Early 20th Century "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

I recently took a trip into the garment district, and for the first time in years I didnt have a list of projects I was shopping for. However I did have a list of materials to keep an eye out for, and one of those was lightweight cotton.

Lightweight cottons are incredibly versatile they can be used for foundation garments from any period, gauzy dresses from the 18th century to the mid 1800s, and more practical pieces from the beginning of the 20th century.

Ive always found it difficult to find lightweight, soft, yet sturdy cottons that would work for these pieces. Especially since (for me) a big part of a garment looking authentic is its texture which is one of the challenges with plain cottons. They dont have a lot of it, and garments can look cheap or flat regardless of how well constructed they are.

Which is why I really lucked out when I came across this striped cotton. It has a faded look to it, and the dots buried in the stripes add a bit of life to it. I originally thought it was red and white, but its more of a mauve. Its very soft and slightly sheer exactly what I hoped to find, and perfect for an edwardian day dress, which is what I decided to use it for!

If you read my recent Progress Report you may recall me raving over fashion plates of 20th century ladies in antique magazines, which definitely served as inspiration for this style of dress. But my main reference was this dress it was listed on etsy, with a bunch of close ups which helped me figure out the construction.

I think the end result is pretty lovely but lets start at the beginning!

REYNOLDS STRUGGLES TO PROCESS THE NEWS EARLIER IN THE WEEK

Wests Tigers recruit Josh Reynolds has expressed his surprise in learning Luke Brooks will be his halves partner at the club next year.

During an awkward press conference at Leichhardt earlier this week, Reynolds was introduced to Brooks by club staff, only for the Canterbury number 6 to ignore him and talk to more important people.

Afterwards Reynolds appeared apologetic.

I honestly thought he wanted my autograph or something so I told him he could grab one a bit later if his dad said it was okay, a bemused Reynolds told us.

He seemed a bit upset and took an age to leave the press pit too, it was only later I learned that he does find it difficult to get away from people.

Luke Brooks contacted the media to express his disgust at his treatment by Reynolds, however so far no members of the media have felt the need to get back to him.

Bee honey and Nigella sativa are effective in reducing the viability of HepG2 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Integr Cancer Ther. 2012 Dec ;11(4):354-63. Epub 2010 Dec 8. PMID: 21147814 Abstract Title:  Antineoplastic effects of bee honey and Nigella sativa on hepatocellular carcinoma cells. Abstract:  OBJECTIVES: To evaluate in vitro antitumor effects of bee honey (BH) and Nigella sativa (NS) on HepG2 through their antioxidant and apoptotic activities.METHODS: HepG2 cell line was treated with different concentrations of diluted unfractionated BH and different concentrations of alcohol extract of NS. Exposure lasted for different time durations (6-72 hours), both dose-response and time course-response were conducted. Cell viability was tested by trypan blue exclusion test. Total antioxidant status and caspase-3 activity were estimated in the cell lysate. Nitric oxide levels were measured in culture supernatants of both treated and untreated HepG2 at all indicated times.RESULTS: Treatment of HepG2 cells with BH and NS leads to a significant decrease in both the number of viable HepG2 cells and the levels of nitric oxide on one hand, but improvement of the total antioxidant status and caspase-3 activity on the other, especially in HepG2 cells treated with higher doses of BH and NS (20% and 5000g/mL, respectively) and for longer duration (72 hours).CONCLUSIONS: BH and NS are effective in reducing the viability of HepG2 cells, improving their antioxidant status and inducing their apoptotic death.

Thymoquinone has a protective role with optimum dose of 9 mg/kg in Aflatoxin B1 hepatotoxicity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Daru. 2011 ;19(4):282-7. PMID: 22615670 Abstract Title:  Protective effect of pretreatment with thymoquinone against Aflatoxin B(1) induced liver toxicity in mice. Abstract:  BACKGROUND AND THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Thymoquinone (TQ) is one of the active components of Nigella sativa. The plant has been used in herbal medicine for treatment of many diseases including liver complications. The present study aimed to investigate protective effects of TQ on Aflatoxin B(1) (AFB(1)) induced liver toxicity in mice.METHODS: Animals were divided into six groups and treated intraperitoneally. Group 1 (blank) served as vehicle, group 2 (positive control) received AFB(1), Group 3 was treated with 9 mg/kg of TQ, Groups 4, 5 and 6 were treated with 4.5, 9 and 18 mg/kg of TQ, respectively. After three consecutive days, except for groups 1 and 3, animals were administered with a single dose of AFB(1) (2 mg/kg). All the animals were killed 24 hrs following the AFB(1) administration under ether anesthesia. Biochemical parameters including AST, ALT and ALP in serum samples and glutathione (GSH) and malondialdehyde (MDA) contents in liver homogenates were determined. Liver sections were collected for histopathological examination.RESULTS: Findings of this study showed that AST, ALT, ALP and MDA levels were significantly lower in the TQ treated animals as compared to AFB(1) group (group 2). Furthermore, TQ was able to recover glutathione content (GSH) of liver tissue. The best response, however, was observed with the dose of 9 mg/kg. Liver sections of AFB(1) intoxicated mice showed inflammation, necrosis, hyperplasia of kupffer and infiltration of mononuclear cells, dilation of sinusoids and disruption of hepatocytes, while treatment with TQ helped to normalize liver architecture in accordance to biochemical findings.CONCLUSION: Taken collectively, TQ has a protective role with optimum dose of 9 mg/kg in AFB(1) hepatotoxicity.

Lions vs Baboons In The Ultimate ShowdownHow Does It EndSee For Yourself "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

If I were your average run-o-th-mill lion living on the Savannah in Africa, baboon meat wouldnt be my first preference. But, a hungry lion will kill just about anything it can catch, especially if it hasnt had a meal in a while. Lions are the apex predators on the African Savanna, it is not uncommon for a pride of lions to occasionally take down an elephant when hungry. So if a hungry lion has the opportunity, a careless baboon makes for a nice snack.

I suppose that being primates ourselves, we would not want to see a lion kill and eat a baboon. Having eaten monkey meat while conducting jungle trainning in Panama, I can tell you monkey isnt a very tasty mealalso- it kinda hits too close to home. But since this video has been viewed by over 44 million people, some found it worth watching.

In ancient Chinese art, plants often served as more than decorative motifs, also representing valuable concepts such as luck and longevity. Most widely recognized for their symbolic status are the Four Gentlemen the plum blossom, the orchid, the chrysanthemum, and the bamboo but much less known is the humble mushroom. Brown, wrinkled, and often stubby, the fungus may not be the most beautiful, but it proved to be a highly popular motif, first in Chinese art, and gradually throughout East Asia.

Grayscale Investments Launches $10 Million Ethereum Classic Private Fund "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

The U.S. investment management company Grayscale Investments LLC has launched the first-ever private fund that invests in the digital currency ethereum classic (ETC) with $10 million in seed capital. The new fund is called the Ethereum Classic Investment Trust.Grayscale Investments, an investment subsidiary of the Digital Currency Group (DCG) founded by entrepreneur and investor Barry Silbert, has raised $10 million in seed capital from the Digital Currency Group, Silbert himself and Glenn Hutchins, co-founder of the private investment firm Silver Lake and board member of DCG, NASDAQ and AT&T. The purpose of the fund is to track the price of the digital currency ethereum classic (ETC), which was created a little under a year ago following the Ethereum hard fork. Ethereum Classic provides developers with the opportunity to create smart contracts as well as decentralized apps.  Ethereum Classic has since emerged as one of the leading digital currencies in the market in terms of market capitalization and investor interest. The all-time high of ethereum classic was $5.11 on April 27, and its market capitalization currently stands at around $440 million, making it the sixth largest digital currency in the market according to CoinMarketCap. Im excited about Ethereum Classic, as opposed to Ethereum (ETH), because ETC has a fixed supply and the potential to serve as the smart contract and micropayment layer to the Internet of Things, Silbert said to Bitcoin Magazine.The Ethereum Classic Investment Trust is set up with a similar structure as Grayscales Bitcoin Investment Trust, the only publicly traded bitcoin investment vehicle in the U.S., which launched as a private vehicle in 2013 and began being publicly traded in 2015. The new fund allows investors to hold ETC without needing to go through the technical hassle of purchasing and securely storing the digital coins.  The fund is launching at a time when the digital currency market is witnessing new all-time highs in its two largest currencies, bitcoin and ether, as well as an impressive rally in altcoins, such as Litecoin, Ripple, DASH as well as ethereum classic. As investors have grown more interested in digital currency as an asset class, weve also seen growing frustration with the difficulty in purchasing non-bitcoin digital currencies, Silbert told Reuters when he first announced his intentions to launch the Ethereum Classic Investment Trust at the beginning of March. Were excited to launch a fund for ethereum classic to satisfy the growing interest we are seeing in ETC from more mainstream investors, he added.The post Grayscale Investments Launches $10 Million Ethereum Classic Private Fund appeared first on Bitcoin Magazine.

Thymoquinone is a potent inducer of apoptosis in primary effusion lymphoma cells via release of ROS. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Free Radic Biol Med. 2011 Apr 15 ;50(8):978-87. Epub 2011 Jan 4. PMID: 21215312 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone suppresses growth and induces apoptosis via generation of reactive oxygen species in primary effusion lymphoma. Abstract:  We provide evidence that thymoquinone (TQ), a natural compound isolated from Nigella sativa, induces growth inhibition and apoptosis in several primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) cell lines. Our data demonstrate that TQ treatment results in down-regulation of constitutive activation of AKT via generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and it causes conformational changes in Bax protein, leading to loss of mitochondrial membrane potential and release of cytochrome c to the cytosol. This leads to activation of caspase-9, caspase-3, and polyadenosine 5'-diphosphate ribose polymerase cleavage, leading to caspase-dependent apoptosis. Pretreatment of PEL cells with N-acetylcysteine, a scavenger of ROS, prevented TQ-mediated effects. In addition, subtoxic doses of TQ sensitized PEL cells to TRAIL via up-regulation of DR5. Altogether, these findings demonstrate that TQ is a potent inducer of apoptosis in PEL cells via release of ROS. They also raise the possibility that incorporation of TQ in treatment regimens for primary effusion lymphomas may provide a novel approach to sensitizing malignant cells and provide a molecular basis for such future translational efforts.

Watch the British Library Digitize One of the Worlds Largest Books "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The Klencke Atlas at the British Library (courtesy British Library)

The 1660 Klencke Atlas is among the worlds biggest books, measuring nearly six feet by seven and a half feet when open. So when the British Library digitized the towering tome, it required several people to maneuver it to a platform for its high-resolution photographs.

We digitized the atlas in order to increase access to the 41 maps which are contained in it, which are extremely rare some known in only three surviving copies  but not terribly well known, Tom Harper, lead curator of antiquarian maps at the library, told Hyperallergic. Obviously the atlas is rather a tricky thing to read though it has wheels fixed onto it to make it easier to move around! Making the maps available free online enables researchers to study these miracles of Dutch cartography and increase our knowledge of the High Renaissance and beginnings of the scientific revolution in the 17th century.

You can watch a timelapse of the multi-day digitization, supported by Daniel Crouch Rare Books, in the video above, recently shared by the library on Twitter. The maps in the centuries-old manuscript were designed to be displayed on the wall, so most other examples deteriorated over time due to exposure and use. The public domain images of the atlas are part of the librarys Picturing Places online resource, launched this month and concentrating on hundreds of landscape-related objects.

The Klencke Atlas is the British Library map collections jewel in the crown, Harper stated....

Mark Bradford Claims New York Times Published Photos of His Work Without Permission "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Mark Bradford in his studio (courtesy of the MacArthur Foundation)

I knew that there was a problem because I started sending emails and there was just silence, says Mark Bradford by phone in Venice, where hes putting the finishing touches on Tomorrow Is Another Day, his solo exhibition in the US Pavilion of the 57th Venice Biennale. Bradford is referring to the April 27 New York Times profile by Jori Finkel featuring his work in the upcoming exhibition, which is set to open to the public on May 13.

The problem: The profile includes four images of unfinished works that will be included in the show. Bradford owns the images, which were taken by his friend, photographer Joshua White, and the Times never asked permission to publish them.

Those are copyrighted images, those are mine, said Bradford. This is the Venice Biennale and no one let me have a voice. No one showed me or asked my permission. My gallery was surprised, the photographer was surprised, and the curatorial team in Venice was surprised. Thats some bootleg shit. This is not acceptable.

In the history of the Venice Biennale, there are few precedents, if any, of press releasing images of the exhibition before it opens. According to Christopher Bedford, former director of the Rose Museum and now director of the Baltimore Museum of Art, the institutions that are co-curating the exhibit, After Bradford and the Rose Museum received the commission, the artist spent two years in focused, monastic work to wring out of himself the best exhibition hes ever produced. Bedford, who has worked with Bradford for nearly a decade, was also disappointed by the article and the release of the images in an unplanned and undesirable way.

I dont know why they felt the need to break protocol in a way that they never have before, with me, Bradford said. He explained that it is customary for an artist, especially on the eve of a huge international exhibition, to work collaboratively with editors at the newspaper t...

Protection against radiation-induced oxidative damage by an ethanolic extract of Nigella sativa. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Radiat Biol. 2010 Sep ;86(9):719-31. PMID: 20670109 Abstract Title:  Protection against radiation-induced oxidative damage by an ethanolic extract of Nigella sativa L. Abstract:  PURPOSE: An ethanolic extract of Nigella sativa L. (EE-NS) was investigated for its antioxidant properties and radioprotective effects against gamma-radiation-induced oxidative damage.MATERIALS AND METHODS: The radical scavenging activity of the extract was measured by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH), deoxyribose degradation and plasmid relaxation assays in a cell-free system. DNA damage studies were performed using a single cell gel electrophoresis (SCGE) assay and micronuclei (MN) formation. Moreover, the alterations in lipid peroxidation and antioxidant enzymes were measured by biochemical methods.RESULTS: EE-NS showed significant free radical scavenging and protection against DNA damage in cell free systems. Ex vivo treatment of mouse splenic lymphocytes with an ethanolic extract of N. sativa 1 h prior to irradiation (2 Gy) showed significant prevention of the formation of lipid-peroxides and intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS), which correlated with radiation-induced apoptosis. Moreover, radiation-induced DNA damage was significantly prevented in splenocytes pre-treated with EE-NS. Swiss albino mice fed orally with the different doses of EE-NS (0-100 mg/kg bw) for five consecutive days followed by 2 Gy whole body irradiation (WBI) showed significant protection against oxidative injury to spleen and liver as measured by lipid peroxidation and the activity of antioxidant enzymes. These results were correlated with the prevention of DNA damage as measured by bone marrow micronuclei assay. Our results suggest that oral feeding of extract resulted in increased survival in mice exposed to WBI (7.5 Gy).CONCLUSION: The results obtained from the different experimental systems suggest the radioprotective ability of EE-NS involving prevention of radiation-induced oxidative damage.

Black cumin oil decreased the proinflammatory cytokines, lactate dehydrogenase, triglyceride, and cholesterol, which were increased in colitis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Dig Dis Sci. 2011 Mar ;56(3):721-30. Epub 2010 Jul 24. PMID: 20658190 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of black cumin (Nigella sativa) oil on TNBS-induced experimental colitis in rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: The pathogenesis and treatment of ulcerative colitis remain poorly understood. The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of black cumin (Nigella sativa) oil on rats with colitis.METHODS: Experimental colitis was induced with 1 mL trinitrobenzene sulfonic acid (TNBS) in 40% ethanol by intracolonic administration with 8-cm-long cannula under ether anesthesia to rats in colitis group and colitis + black cumin oil group. Rats in the control group were given saline at the same volume by intracolonic administration. Black cumin oil (BCO, Origo"100% natural Black Cumin Seed Oil,"Turkey) was given to colitis + black cumin oil group by oral administration during 3 days, 5 min after colitis induction. Saline was given to control and colitis groups at the same volume by oral administration. At the end of the experiment, macroscopic lesions were scored and the degree of oxidant damage was evaluated by colonic total protein, sialic acid, malondialdehyde, and glutathione levels, collagen content, and tissue factor, superoxide dismutase, and myeloperoxidase activities. Tissues were also examined by histological and cytological analysis. Proinflammatory cytokines [tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-), interleukin (IL)-1, and IL-6], lactate dehydrogenase activity, and triglyceride and cholesterol levels were analyzed in blood samples.RESULTS: We found that black cumin oil decreased the proinflammatory cytokines, lactate dehydrogenase, triglyceride, and cholesterol, which were increased in colitis.CONCLUSIONS: BCO, by preventing inflammatory status in the blood, partly protected colonic tissue against experimental ulcerative colitis.

John McAfee Just Announced the Most Private Smart Phone Ever: Heres How it Works "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

(ANTIMEDIA)   In an exclusive interview, head of MGT Capital Investments and former presidential candidate John McAfee spoke with Anti-Media Thursday night about an issue at the forefront of many peoples minds these days: privacy.

McAfee, a pioneer in the realm of antivirus software, has a new product coming to market later this year that takes on the subject of personal privacy with an item thats become a significant part of most peoples daily lives smartphones.

There are very few apps that do not ask for excessive permissions, McAfee told Anti-Media radio host S.M. Gibson, pointing out that long before the public was aware, technology companies were recording and selling customers data to third parties through their products.

Its the users agreement to these permissions that makes it all legal, notes McAfee, though by agreeing, most apps get access to parts of the persons phone that have nothing to do with the apps function. As he explains:

Listen to Anti-Medias conversation with John McAfee in full below:

If you have a Bible reading app, which basically takes text and synthesizes it and its a text and speech synthesizer, all you need access to is your speaker. And yet most of those apps, at least when they first came out, wanted access to your camera, your microphone, your email, your contacts, your wi-fi, Bluetooth, and your geolocation. They wanted to know everything that you did. They wanted to know what you were Googling, what you were searching for. And you could access all this if you, as the user, agree to those terms.

McAfee points out that most of these apps are free because people will be more likely to download them. The more downloads, the more data software companies get access to data that, again, can be sold to third parties.

McAfee considers this practice to be innocuous since users have the choice of whether or not to agree to the terms. But the intentions of others, such as black hat hackers, are anything but.

They want to steal from you, said McAfee. Your identity, your credit cards, your Bitcoin wallet, they want to know what your social security number is. The password for your bank account. And so most people are completely unaware their movements are being monitored.

The problem, McAfee says, is rooted in the software.

Do you think that when you power down your phone, that its actually powered down? McAfee asked the Anti-Media audience Thursday. I would say that 25 perce...

Vroom Vroom "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Vroom Vroom

I have this theory about the vroom vroom.  When Im here in Key West I do a lot of walking and biking.  Every time a man drives by me they find it necessary to overly accentuate the acceleration in a way that the vehicle goes vroom vroom.  Its not every man but its usually men in big trucks, sports cars and motorcycles.  This isnt something that only happens in Key West, Ive seen it all over the United States.  I believe its the international douche bag mating call.  All over the world men with exaggerated egos feel they need to speak through the engines of their car in order to gain acceptance.  I want to know why they feel the sound of a revving engine is supposed to make our panties wet?  It does the exact opposite and lessens your chance with us.  What you think youre doing is getting our attention, but what youre really doing is warning us of dangers to come.  Its the equivalent in annoyance as the hey you cat calls we never respond to.

Last year when I went on my strip trip I drove a rented 2017 Mustang Convertible for 5 weeks with no destination.  Before my strip trip I had my gypsy wagon that was spray painted with hearts and peace signs.  You wouldnt think that being an attractive woman who took care of her body it would matter what I drove?  It does though. The reactions I received varied so drastically that I decided to finally write about them.  Especially since Im reminded of the vroom vrooms every day when I go for a walk.

The gypsy wagon  was a really fun social experiment for my family and I.  I remember driving all over south Florida and getting stares from the upscale socialites who thought I was insane or assumed I was white trash.  I became so accustomed to not caring that I forgot what it felt like to drive an acceptable status vehicle.  Nothing changed within me, only the method of getting from point A to Point B.  Its interesting how fast the world around you can jump from being outcast-ed to accepted with the switch of an ignition.

On my strip trip I started noticing a common occurrence when stopping for red lights.  When a man with an equal amount of horse power pulled up next to me, I became his challenge.  He would sound the vroom vroom and grin a devious grin.  Eventually after my rejection they would put the petal to the metal and speed away.  I began to notice the exact opposite occurring when a man driving a vehicle that was...

Nigella sativa: reduces the risk of various maladies. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Crit Rev Food Sci Nutr. 2010 Aug ;50(7):654-65. PMID: 20694927 Abstract Title:  Nigella sativa: reduces the risk of various maladies. Abstract:  Coinage of terms like nutraceuticals, functional, and pharma foods has diverted the attention of human beings to where they are seeking more natural cures. Though pharmaceutical drugs have been beneficial for human health and have cured various diseases but they also impart some side effects. Numerous plants have been tested for their therapeutic potential; Nigella sativa, commonly known as black cumin, is one of them. It possesses a nutritional dense profile as its fixed oil (lipid fraction), is rich in unsaturated fatty acids while essential oil contains thymoquinone and carvacrol as antioxidants. N. sativa seeds also contain proteins, alkaloids (nigellicines and nigelledine), and saponins (alpha-hederin) in substantial amounts. Recent pharmacological investigations suggested its potential role, especially for the amelioration of oxidative stress through free radical scavenging activity, the induction of apoptosis to cure various cancer lines, the reduction of blood glucose, and the prevention of complications from diabetes. It regulates hematological and serological aspects and can be effective in dyslipidemia and respiratory disorders. Moreover, its immunopotentiating and immunomodulating role brings balance in the immune system. Evidence is available supporting the utilization of Nigella sativa and its bioactive components in a daily diet for health improvement. This review is intended to focus on the composition of Nigella sativa and to elaborate its possible therapeutic roles as a functional food to prevent an array of maladies.

An Avocado a Day Keeps the Doctor Away

by Dr. Mercola

Sometimes people have more than one serious health complication. If those problems happen to be three or more of the most prevalent risk factors for heart disease and diabetes, such as high blood pressure, high triglycerides and a large waistline, they merge into a single disorder known as metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome represents one very serious illness, affecting 40 percent of the U.S. population over age 40.

Scientists from the Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine at Florida Atlantic University (FAU), conducting a review of 129 scientific studies on the topic of avocados and metabolic syndrome, now call this malady the new silent killer. [1] Dr. Charles H. Hennekens says:

The major factor accelerating the pathway to metabolic syndrome is overweight and obesity. Obesity is overtaking smoking as the leading avoidable cause of premature death in the U.S. and worldwide. [2]

Parvathi Perumareddi, doctor of osteopathic medicine and assistant professor of integrated medical science at FAU, explained:

The pandemic of obesity, which begins in childhood, is deeply concerning. Adolescents today are more obese and less physically active than their parents and already have higher rates of type 2 diabetes.

It is likely that the current generation of children and adolescents in the U.S. will be the first since 1960 to have higher mortality rates than their parents due mainly to cardiovascular disease, including coronary heart disease and stroke. [3]

Its something you have control over, however. The review concluded that metabolic syndrome is preventable in most cases using dietary meas...

Vito Acconci, Audacious Artist and Experimental Architect, Dies at 77 "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view of VITO ACCONCI: WHERE ARE WE NOW (WHO ARE WE ANYWAY?), 1976 at MoMA PS1, 2016 (image courtesy Acconci Studio and MoMA PS1, photo by Pablo Enriquez)

Artist and architect Vito Acconci died today from a stroke at the age of 77. For a little under two decades, Acconci produced strikingly original and impressionable art, before abandoning it for experimental architecture and design. Later in life, Acconci would say he hated the word artist. Last year, in a New York Times profile ahead of his 2016 retrospective at MoMA PS1, he looked back on his performance art years and remarked, I didnt really have anything to do with art.

Acconci was born in 1940 in the Bronx, to an American mother and an Italian father. He resided in New York City most of his life, where he participated in the Downtown Manhattan art scene, founded his own architecture studio in 1988, and taught at both Brooklyn College and Pratt Institute. But before all that, in 1962, he briefly left to pursue an MFA in poetry at the University of Iowa. Besides writing a short story about a limbless character that would shock his classmates, Acconci would discover that he wanted words to maybe be what they cant be. I wanted words to be matter, to be material. So he returned to Manhattan, where hed make performance pieces that were corporeal and, some might say, a little invasive  in Following Piece (1969), he stalked passersby on the street until they reached a private space, and in his most famous piece, Seedbed (1972), he masturbated beneath a gallery floor for three weeks, eight hours a day, while voicing his fantasies of the visitors above him via a microphone.

Thymoquinone could be useful as a potential chemotherapeutic agent in the management for brain tumours. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2010 Aug 12 ;5(8):e12124. Epub 2010 Aug 12. PMID: 20711342 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone induces telomere shortening, DNA damage and apoptosis in human glioblastoma cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: A major concern of cancer chemotherapy is the side effects caused by the non-specific targeting of both normal and cancerous cells by therapeutic drugs. Much emphasis has been placed on discovering new compounds that target tumour cells more efficiently and selectively with minimal toxic effects on normal cells.METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: The cytotoxic effect of thymoquinone, a component derived from the plant Nigella sativa, was tested on human glioblastoma and normal cells. Our findings demonstrated that glioblastoma cells were more sensitive to thymoquinone-induced antiproliferative effects. Thymoquinone induced DNA damage, cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in the glioblastoma cells. It was also observed that thymoquinone facilitated telomere attrition by inhibiting the activity of telomerase. In addition to these, we investigated the role of DNA-PKcs on thymoquinone mediated changes in telomere length. Telomeres in glioblastoma cells with DNA-PKcs were more sensitive to thymoquinone mediated effects as compared to those cells deficient in DNA-PKcs.CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our results indicate that thymoquinone induces DNA damage, telomere attrition by inhibiting telomerase and cell death in glioblastoma cells. Telomere shortening was found to be dependent on the status of DNA-PKcs. Collectively, these data suggest that thymoquinone could be useful as a potential chemotherapeutic agent in the management for brain tumours.

N. sativa administration exerts potent inhibitory effects on rat tumor development and on cellular proliferation in multiple organ sites. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Lett. 2010 Sep ;1(5):913-924. Epub 2010 Sep 1. PMID: 22966405 Abstract Title:  Cancer chemopreventive potential of volatile oil from black cumin seeds, Nigella sativa L., in a rat multi-organ carcinogenesis bioassay. Abstract:  Nigella sativa (N. sativa) is a herbal plant of the Ranunculaceae family that has been widely used for various medicinal and nutritional purposes. Volatile oil extracts along with its major constituents, such as thymoquinone, have recently attracted considerable attention for their antioxidant, immunoprotective and antitumor properties. The present study was conducted to assess the chemopreventive potential of crude oils in N. sativa on tumor formation using a well-established rat multi-organ carcinogenesis model featuring initial treatment with five different carcinogens. Post-initiation administration of 1000 or 4000 ppm N. sativa volatile oil in the diet of male Wistar rats for 30 weeks significantly reduced malignant and benign colon tumor sizes, incidences and multiplicities. The treatment also significantly decreased the incidences and multiplicities of tumors in the lungs and in different parts of the alimentary canal, particularly the esophagus and forestomach. Bromodeoxyuridine labeling indices, reflecting cell proliferation were significantly decreased in various organs and lesions after treatment with the two doses of N. sativa. The plasma levels of insulin growth factor, triglycerides and prostaglandin E2 were also altered. The findings show, for the first time, that N. sativa administration exerts potent inhibitory effects on rat tumor development and on cellular proliferation in multiple organ sites. In particular, the ability to significantly inhibit murine colon, lung, esophageal and forestomach tumors was demonstrated in the post-initiation phase, with no evidence of clinical side effects. The mechanisms are likely to be related to suppression of cell proliferation.

Tim Wells, a well known hunter has been all over the world, hes hunted in  North America, South America and even in Africa.

Documents Tie Berkeley Riot Organizers To Pro-Pedophilia Group, NAMBLA "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The left-wing activists behind the anti-conservative riots at Berkeley have ties to one of the nations most prominent pro-pedophilia organizations.

The Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration & Immigrant Rights, and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary more commonly referred to as By Any Means Necessary or BAMN is one of the militant leftist groups waging a campaign against conservatives and Trump supporters in Berkeley. The groups planned aggressive demonstrations against conservative commentator Ann Coulter and the students coming to hear her talk led to the cancellation of Coulters speech this week due to safety concerns. (RELATED: INFERNO Milo Speech Cancelled After Rioters Set UC Berkeley Campus Ablaze)

BAMNs parent organization worked directly with the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) in the years just before it founded BAMN, according to NAMBLA documents reviewed by The Daily Caller. In addition, a member of that parent organization said to have founded BAMN is an admitted member of NAMBLA, which she has described as the victim of a witch-hunt.

BAMN, which did not return a phone call and voicemail seeking comment, was founded by the Revolutionary Workers League, a small, Detroit-based Marxist organization. Many of BAMNs leading members over the years have also been RWL members.

The Revolutionary Workers League is a Trotskyist organization of which Im a member, Luke Massie, one of BAMNs founders told the Michigan Daily in 2001. We are proud to have played a part in a whole lot of struggles and to have played a role in the founding of BAMN.

An anonymous group of researchers provided TheDC with copies of internal NAMBLA publications from the 1990s. The internet sleuths requested anonymity, citing fear of retaliation by BAMN members, and asked instead to be collectively referred to as, The shadowy and/or mysterious organization known as Antifaleaks.

The University of Michigans Joseph Labadie Special Collection maintains copies of the NAMBLA documents.

Wow If True Trump's alternative media "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Wow If True
Trump's alternative media

By Mark Hemingway

The news that former national security adviser Susan Rice was responsible for "unmasking" the identities of associates of President Trump in government surveillance reports sent shockwaves through Washington. But almost as newsworthy was the identity of the man who got the scoop: vociferous Trump booster and blogger Mike Cernovich.

Though it was Bloomberg's foreign policy reporter Eli Lake who nailed down the details of the Rice story on the morning of April 3, the evening before Cernovich had published a short report on Medium, an Internet platform open to anyone, headlined "Susan Rice Requested Unmasking of Incoming Trump Administration Officials." The post had a few original details, but beyond the revelation in the headline, the article was notable for its attack on New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. According to Cernovich, Haberman had been sitting on the story "in an effort to protect the reputation of former President Barack Obama."

Then, the day after Lake had produced his much more credible and detailed account, Cernovich lashed out at him, claiming Lake, too, had been sitting on the story.

"Eli Lake had it. He didn't want to run it and Bloomberg didn't want to run it because it vindicates Trump's claim that he had been spied upon. ... I'm showing you the politics of 'real journalism.' 'Real journalism' is that Bloomberg had it and the New York Times had it but they wouldn't run it because they don't want to run any stories that would make Obama look bad or that will vindicate Trump."

Haberman tells me she "first heard the Susan Rice detail in the Cernovich piece." Lake says, in no uncertain terms, that Cernovich's grasp of "real journalism" is wanting. "I don't think Cernovich understands what we do," he says. Lake notes that he had to nail down the facts before publishing. "I get information and verify it," he says. "Why would I sit on it? It's a huge story. He's a fake news artist."

There's no question who the White House thought deserved the most credit for the Rice story. On April 4, Donald Trump Jr. tweeted, "Congrats to [Mike Cernovich] for breaking the #SusanRice story. In a long gone time of unbiased journalism he'd win the Pulitzer, but not today!"

What Disney Princesses Would Look Like in the Modern Day "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

What if Disneys famous princesses lived in our modern day world instead of in theirs? Thats what photographer Qingjian Meng explores in his latest photo project, titled Modern Princess.

The princesses are photographed as if they exist today, the Los Angeles-based photographer says. The fantastical, magical props that they carried have been replaced with concrete, everyday objects and modern conveniences.

Objects and conveniences such as cell phones, longboards, popsicle, and even a virtual reality headset.

Meng says that as girls grow up into young women, they generally find that it doesnt resemble the fairy tales they grew up on.

The responsibilities of employment, parenthood, and partnership are conspicuously left out of the typical princess story, minimized to only a single sentence: ..and they lived happily ever after., Meng says.

Oaxaca Highway Blockade in Protest of Electricity Substation and Other Development "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Its Going Down

We, the communities of Puente Madera, Rancho Llano and Loma Bonita, from the indigenous Zapotec municipality of San Blas Atempa, Oaxaca, are continuing intense mobilizations with a now 24-hour-long blockade of the Trans-Isthmus Highway between Tehuantepec and Juchitn.

The participation of women, children and elderly people is important, as our entire communities and not a handful of people like the bourgeois state claims are strongly opposing these megaprojects, as we have not been consulted and believe our rights, based on Article 169 of the International Labor Organization, have been violated.

The projects that have created great controversy and flagrant human rights violations are the electricity substation for the National Defense Ministrys wind farm, the extraction of stone from Iguu Hill, a Zapotec ceremonial center, and the landfill in the Pitayal neighborhood.

Despite the existence of injunctions and legal action, the current mayor, Augusto Acevedo Osorio from the MORENA Party, has ignored them. The current state government has as well. Another controversial neo-MORENA character is former mayor Antonino Morales Toledo, the stand-in for Jos Antonio Estefan Garfias, a PRD federal representative. With their thirst for money, both of these crooks, protected by public power, have impacted the communal well-being of these communities.

That is how these three types of interests economic, political and social are connected through these projects.

Parties and politicians who traffic in networks of transnational interests.

The former mayor owns construction equipment and has boarded the development train as its judge and jury.

The blockade continues under the intense sun, the unusual drought, and the night that cloaks the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The General Assembly of the Binniza People in Struggle has decided to call for Carmelita Ricardez, the head of the Oaxaca State Ministry o...

Acer Unveils a 31.5-Inch 4K Monitor for Photographers "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Acer has announced a new display geared toward photographer and other creatives. The ProDesigner PE320QK is a 31.5-inch, 4K LED display that helps you see high-resolution photos in detail.

Announced at the Next@Acer event in New York City, the monitor features a number of technologies that photo editors may appreciate.

Acer has built-in its HDR Xpert technology that enhances brightness for a vivid contrast between lights and darks, while covering a wider gamut for truly vibrant colors, the company says. The monitor supports 130% of the sRGB space and 95% of DCI-P3. It also produces accurate colors with a low Delta E < 1. There's also a VisionCare feature that helps to reduce a photographer's eye strain and fatigue while doing marathon photo editing sessions. Aesthetically, the display has a modern design, as Acer's ZeroFrame technology allows it to have minimal bezel around the edges, providing a "seamless visual experience."

Other specs and features include 550 nits of brightness, a 4ms response time, a 100 million to 1 contrast ratio, 2 HDMI 2.0 ports, a DisplayPort 1.2, 4 USB-C inputs (including a reversible one that can charge devices with a power output up to 85W), and audio out.

Packaged with the monitor are two 2W speakers and a removable anti-glare hood. No word yet on price or availability.

Brazils deforestation sheriff has been fired "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Theres been a major shakeup in the Brazilian governments anti-deforestation department. A little more than a year after being named Brazils deforestation sheriff, Thelma Krug has reportedly been fired after a dispute over how trends in forest destruction are monitored in the country. Climate Homes Claudio Angelo reports from Brasilia that government officials told members of the press that Krug had expressed her interest in leaving in order to dedicate more time to her attributions at IPCC. But Angelo writes: Sources say, however, that the removal happened after a row with vice-minister Marcelo Cruz, who questioned the deforestation data produced by the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), where Krug is a senior scientist. Krug is also a well-respected climate scientist who serves as a vice chair of the UNs Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and will apparently be staying on in her other role at INPE. The firing comes as the deforestation rate in Brazil is on the rise once again after a decade of sharp declines. Last year, numbers released by INPE revealed that deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest had jumped 29 percent over the previous year, making 2015-2016 the year with the highest level of Amazon destruction since 2008. The rate of primary forest loss in the Brazilian Amazon last year was 75 percent higher than it was in 2012, when deforestation was at the lowest level measured since annual record-keeping began in 1988. Weakened environmental regulations, dry conditions, and Brazil's ongoing economic slump are

Supplement Advocates Are Losing a Champion in Congress "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), a noted champion of natural supplements, has announced he will not seek re-election in 2018. The announcement came last week. He may even retire before his term ends.

As one of natural healths foremost advocates in Congress, we are sad to see him go. Rep. Chaffetz was a staunch supporter of consumer access to dietary supplements, both in principle and in action. He weighed in with the FDA numerous times over the years against the agencys disastrous new dietary ingredient (NDI) guidance.

The congressman also fought repeatedly for free speech rights and the right of consumers to have access to truthful scientific information about the benefits of natural products by sponsoring the Free Speech About Science Act.

Its no secret that Big Pharma has many allies in Congressnot to mention within the FDAand it has tremendous influence over the formation of healthcare policy in this country. Rep. Chaffetz stands among our countrys most effective and vocal champions for natural health issues, and he will be sorely missed when he leaves office.

An International Exhibition Imagines an Intersectional Future "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Ayana V Jackson, What Will You Tell About Me? Do You Feel Pain? (2013), archival pigment print (all images courtesy of projects+gallery)

ST. LOUIS Walking into the L-shaped projects+gallery space, you might be held up at the entrance trying to decode the message on the wall post-identity semiotics, spelled out in vinyl letters but the heavy intellectualism the words suggest is missing from the work on display in Transparency Shade. Instead, pieces by a geographically diverse group of artists ring the gallery with aesthetics of a hybrid world where identities are blurred and cultural or racial dichotomies are dissolved. The artists represent a new polycultural future for curator Modou Dieng, one where binaries are exploded into multiplicities. Throughout the exhibit, a certain navet or levity takes the place of vitriolic lamentations about gender, race, and culture. Discuss us now, let our bodies be visible and divine again, Dieng writes in the catalogue.

Taken together, the works acknowledge the multifaceted definitions of black art and feminist art. These oversimplifications, which are used to box artists into practices and symbolisms that are comfortable to the white male establishment, are immediately confused in this exhibition, where Dieng, originally from Senegal, delves into African American art with Hank Willis Thomass celebratory appropriations of iconography from the civil rights movement. I AM A WHITE AGITATOR, reads the first self-titled painting from 2016.

The Big Fat Lie is Officially Exposed in the British Medical Journal "IndyWatch Feed Health"

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

The saturated fat lie is officially exposed now that the British Journal of Sports Medicine, a division of the BMJ (British Medical Journal), emphatically declared:

Saturated fat does not clog the arteries: coronary heart disease is a chronic inflammatory condition, the risk of which can be effectively reduced from healthy lifestyle interventions. (Emphasis added)

Of course, the lie may persist for some time. Health Impact News readers and a relative handful of knowledgeable consumers already know this.

Even so, most mainstream and even holistic doctors, nutritionists, and most health writers, orthodox and alternative, still maintain the prevailing false dogma of saturated fat as the villain creating poor heart health. More on that here.

The beginning of this very recent BMJ letter, 31 March 2017, reviewing several mega-studies, states early in their editorial:

Despite popular belief among doctors and the public, the conceptual model of dietary saturated fat clogging a pipe is just plain wrong.

Wrong, unequivocally and indisputably, not maybe or could be or further studies needed, but completely wrong. Its over. And the root cause of arterial inflammation is cited with dietary recommendations that lean toward the Mediterranean Diet.

Reviewing the BMJ Review

Its important to understand that the BMJ is one of the worlds most prestigious journals. Hopefully, some cardiologists, physicians, and nutritionists will get around to reading this recent saturated fat article. If so, maybe prescribing harmful statin drugs will go out of fashion.

Mainstream science journalists may even stop debunking and stop defaming vetera...

Breast cancer BOMBSHELL: Women being CONNED into mastectomy surgery "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Nurse Assisting Patient Undergoing Mammogram

(Natural News) Women all across America are being conned into medically unnecessary breast removal surgery (bilateral mastectomy surgery) by doctors who scare them with fake science by falsely describing genetic testing results, warn researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Women who have harmless genetic variants called VUS (Variants of Uncertain Significance) are falsely being told by nearly half of all breast cancer surgeons that they have the breast cancer gene (BRCA1 or BRCA2) and therefore must have the surgery to save their lives. Famously, Angelina Jolie underwent a bilateral mastectomy after being told she carried the gene for breast cancer, but these new findings by Stanford researchers call into question whether her surgery was medically necessary at all.

In essence, Stanford University researchers reveal that unscrupulous cancer surgeons are defrauding patients with fake science scare tactics. This is also raising health care expenditures of pension programs, private insurance and public insurance systems such as Obamacare, causing governments to waste huge amounts of money on medically unjustified surgery. Not coincidentally, the more dishonest cancer surgeons can scare women into agreeing to surgical procedures, the more money they make for themselves (regardless of the medical necessity of the procedure). In essence, the fake science of misinterpreting genetic testing results has become a lucrative revenue source for the breast cancer surgery industry.

Our findings suggest a limited understanding among physicians and patients of the meaning of genetic testing results, said Allison Kurian, MD, associate professor of medicine and of health research and policy at Stanford, as reported in...

This Drone Timelapse Shows Japanese Cherry Blossoms Fading Into View "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Heres a beautiful use of a camera drone: freelance cameraman Jack Johnston created this video showing landscapes in Japan. As the drone flies over each one, cherry blossoms suddenly fade into view.

The project is reminiscent of one we shared earlier this month that showed the passage of 2 years and multiple seasons in a single flight. For that project, photographer Will Strathmann visited the same farm over that span and captured the exact same flight path each time.

While Johnston hasnt revealed the details of his technique online, it appears to be a similar concept of visiting the same locations before and after the trees bloom.

A few months ago I was asked to film a series of lapse time shots of the Cherry Blossom trees in Japan for a BBC Springwatch Special, Johnston writes. After months of testing and working out the kinks in the process, this is a selection of shots that featured in the final show.

Art History: What is Line Art? "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

famous line drawings

It's often thought that an artist's stroke is the purest way to perceive their abilities. As a line winds across a paper or canvas, this continuous band can emit powerful emotions. Thus, it's no surprise that line art, or line drawing, is one of the most basic elements of visual art.

In fact, as one of the seven visual elements of artalong with form, shape, color, value, texture, and spacethe line is a hallmark of the arts. But what is line art? First, it's important to note that a line doesn't simply move from point A to point B. At its core, line drawing consists of distinct lines against a primarily solid background. In art, a line can be two-dimensional or three-dimensional, abstract, descriptive, or implied.

Line art is often black and white, but not always. Elements like shading and color gradients are absent, allowing the focus to rest firmly on the lines themselves. Line drawings can be sketches, but they can also be finished artworks unto themselves. The line is so fundamental to the arts, that a common exercise for art students is to draw a form using one single line, never letting the drawing utensil leave the page.

It's important to remember that line art isn't only about painting and drawing. Lines can be visually formed in many ways. For instance, sculptors bending materials into different shapes or photographers creating implied lines via the angle of their camera.

Now that we know a bit about the theory, let's dive into line art through history, beginning with famous line drawings in art history.

Throughout art history, artists have created influential art using the line as a principle means of visual expression.

CALIFORNIA: Despite being home to more Armenians than any other state, Democrat lawmakers hold "Muslim Day" on Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day. Whatever! It's not like Muslims were the ones who slaughtered more than 1.5 MILLION Armenian Christians during the Genocide...oh wait

Monday April 24 was Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day and in Los Angeles thousands marched in the street outside the Turkish consulate. Up in Sacramento, ruling Democrats ignored the Armenians and instead held Muslim Day at the Capitol, hosted by the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

Trump reignites spirit of justice for Muslim Day at Capitol, headlined the news article in the Sacramento Bee, whose April 24 edition included not a word about the Armenians day. As CAIRs Yannina Casillas explained, The election of Trump and the campaign in general kind of reignited a spirit of justice within the community that was very much dormant. A lot of people are really interested in getting more involved.

CAIR supports several bills now pending in the state legislature, including Senate Bill 54, which bars state or local law enforcement from using their resources to help federal immigration enforcement. The measure would prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies, including school police and security departments, from using resources to investigate, interrogate, detain, detect, or arrest persons for immigration enforcement purposes. The bill also requires public schools, libraries, health facilities and courthouses to adopt similar policies.

Schumer Comes Up Empty When Kasie Hunt Asks Which Dems Can Beat Trump In 2020 [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer couldnt give MSNBCs Kasie Hunt a single name when she asked him Friday which Democrats could beat President Trump in 2020.

Lots of people, the New York Democrat first responded, prompting Hunt to ask him to provide just one name.

Im not going to pick a name.

WATCH:




Hunt then asked Schumer who he thinks is the leader of the Democratic party.

We have a bunch of leaders, he dodged, yet again. You know, I certainly am the leader of the Senate, and I try to represent the Democratic Party, but we have a lot of good voices.

Mainstream media insults the public's intelligence on vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

There is a bitter war going on, and it's not over Trumpcare or immigration: It is about vaccines. Mainstream media and medical groups, typically funded or backed by Big Pharma, cast parents who are skeptical about vaccines as conspiracy theorists whose backward beliefs put the public at risk. Vaccine skeptics cast vaccine promoters as paid shills, hired by Big Pharma to cover up documented vaccine-related injuries. In mainstream and progressive media coverage (Mother Jones, Alternet, Huffington Post, Truthout, Progressive, The Nation) there is zero tolerance for critical debate about vaccine safety. Question why the hepatitis B vaccine is routinely given to babies at birthfor a disease mainly transmitted through sex and I.V. drug useand you're labeled "anti-science." Suggest that some vaccines, including those such as the highly promoted HPV Gardasil and Cervarix (both of which have been linked to adverse reactions and death) are not exactly "life-saving," and you might as well yell "bring back polio." The media routinely discredits parents of vaccine-injured children, accusing them of not knowing anything about medicine (except raising their own challenged child of course) and of "imagining" or even causing their child's deficits.

PHILADELPHIA  During a normal week, it would be easy to walk from City Hall toward the Philadelphia Museum of Art with that buildings iconic front steps on the horizon. But this week isnt normal.

For the past two weeks and through this weekend, those famous steps are blocked by a large stage, erected for the 2017 NFL draft, which replicates and fetishizes the museums front colonnade. Until the draft ends, visitors to the museum will only be allowed to enter through its West Entrance. Across the top of the stage is this years tagline, The Future is Now. From all appearances, this future looks both confusing and inconvenient.

When I visited the museum on Tuesday, I spoke with a few workers who said it was harder than usual to get to work. In the caf, the woman working the burrito counter was frustrated because none of their deliveries were getting through. Upstairs, a museum guard told me that everyone is confused and no one seems to know anything about the protocol during the draft. He even suggested that those in the know have been told not to say too much. According to a clerk in the gift shop, a police officer told a visitor the museum was closed.

When I called the museum for official comment, I was repeatedly told that someone would get back to me, but no one did.

On Wednesday, during another visit, I was shocked to see six large-screen TVs tuned to NFL draft coverage and set up in the lobby of the Great Stair Hall, made famous by Augustus Saint-Gaudenss bronze statue, ...

Review on molecular and therapeutic potential of thymoquinone in cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Nutr Cancer. 2010 ;62(7):938-46. PMID: 20924969 Abstract Title:  Review on molecular and therapeutic potential of thymoquinone in cancer. Abstract:  Thymoquinone (TQ) is the predominant bioactive constituent present in black seed oil (Nigella sativa) and has been tested for its efficacy against cancer. Here, we summarize the literature about TQ's molecular mechanism of action and its ability to induce apoptosis and inhibit tumor growth in preclinical models. TQ has anti-inflammatory effects, and it inhibits tumor cell proliferation through modulation of apoptosis signaling, inhibition of angiogenesis, and cell cycle arrest. Chemosensitization by TQ is mostly limited to in vitro studies, and it has potential in therapeutic strategy for cancer. The results favor efficacy and enhancement of therapeutic benefit against tumor cells resistant to therapy based on cellular targets that are molecular determinants for cancer cell survival and progression. There have been attempts to synthesize novel analogs of TQ directed toward superior effects in killing tumor cells with more enhanced chemosensitizing potential than parent TQ compound. Based on published reports, we believe that further in-depth studies are warranted including investigation of its bioavailability and Phase I toxicity profiling in human subjects. The results from such studies will be instrumental in advancing this field in support of initiating clinical trials for testing the effects of this ancient agent in cancer therapy.

Portland Rose Parade Cancelled Amid THREATS OF VIOLENCE From Anti-Fascists: You Have Seen How Much Power We Have Police Cant Stop Us "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

antifascists1

For a bunch of peace loving, tolerance spewing social justice warriors, it sure does appear that the new progressive movement in America is rapidly turning to Bolshevik tactics to force their will upon a free and non-violent people.

The latest example of a society on the brink of civil war comes to us from Portland, Oregon, where every year the 82nd Avenue of Roses Business Association kicks of the citys annual Rose Festival with a family-friendly parade.

Except this year, there will be no parade. Organizers have cancelled the event amid threats of violence from groups referring to themselves as Anti-Fascist. According to The Washington Post, the reasoning behind the threats is reportedly outrage over the fact that the countys Republican Party was given one of the nearly 100 spots in the parade.

Then came an anonymous and ominous email, according to parade organizers, that instructed them to cancel the GOP groups registration or else.

You have seen how much power we have downtown and that the police cannot stop us from shutting down roads so please consider your decision wisely, the anonymous email said, referring to the violent riots that hit Portland after the 2016 presidential election, reported the Oregonian. This is nonnegotiable.

Thymoquinone supplementation attenuates cyclophosphamide induced cardiotoxicity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Biochem Mol Toxicol. 2011 May-Jun;25(3):135-42. Epub 2010 Oct 18. PMID: 20957680 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone supplementation attenuates cyclophosphamide-induced cardiotoxicity in rats. Abstract:  This study examined the possible protective effects of thymoquinone (TQ), the main constituent of the volatile oil of black seed (Nigella sativa), against cyclophosphamide (CP)-induced cardiotoxicity. Adult male Wistar albino rats were divided into four treatment groups. Rats in the first group were served as control. Rats in the second group received TQ (50 mg/L in drinking water) for 12 days. Animals in the third group were injected with a single dose of CP (200 mg/kg, IP) at day 5. Rats in the fourth group received TQ (50 mg/L in drinking water) for 5 days before a single dose of CP (200 mg/kg, IP) and continued thereafter throughout the experiment. On day 13, animals were sacrificed; serum and hearts were isolated and analyzed. Cyclophosphamide resulted in a significant increase in serum creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, cholesterol, triglycerides, creatinine, urea, and tumor necrosis factor-. In heart tissues, CP resulted in a significant increase in thiobarbituric acid reactive substances and total nitrate/nitrite and a significant decrease in reduced glutathione, glutathione peroxidase, catalase, and adenosine triphosphate levels. Interestingly, TQ supplementation resulted in a complete reversal of all the biochemical changes induced by CP to their control values. Data from this study suggest that TQ supplementation attenuates CP-induced cardiotoxicity by a mechanism related, at least in part, to its ability to decrease oxidative and nitrosative stress and to preserve the activity of antioxidant enzymes as well as its ability to improve the mitochondrial function and energy production. .

Thymoquinone attenuates diethylnitrosamine induction of hepatic carcinogenesis through antioxidant signaling. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2010 Jul-Aug;3(4):254-61. PMID: 20972371 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone attenuates diethylnitrosamine induction of hepatic carcinogenesis through antioxidant signaling. Abstract:  Hepatocellular carcinoma accounts for about 80-90% of all liver cancer and is the fourth most common cause of cancer mortality. Although there are many strategies for the treatment of liver cancer, chemoprevention seems to be the best strategy for lowering the incidence of this disease. Therefore, this study has been initiated to investigate whether thymoquinone (TQ), Nigella sativa derived-compound with strong antioxidant properties, supplementation could prevent initiation of hepatocarcinogenesis-induced by diethylnitrosamine (DENA), a potent initiator and hepatocarcinogen, in rats. Male Wistar albino rats were divided into four groups. Rats of Group 1 received a single intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of normal saline. Animals in Group 2 were given TQ (4 mg/kg/day) in drinking water for 7 consecutive days. Rats of Group 3 were injected with a single dose of DENA (200 mg/kg, i.p.). Animals in Group 4 were received TQ and DENA. DENA significantly increased alanine transaminase (ALT), alkaline phosphatase (ALP), total bilirubin, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) and total nitrate/nitrite (NOx) and decreased reduced glutathione (GSH), glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx), glutathione-s-transferase (GST) and catalase (CAT) activity in liver tissues. Moreover, DENA decreased gene expression of GSHPx, GST and CAT and caused severe histopathological lesions in liver tissue. Interestingly, TQ supplementation completely reversed the biochemical and histopathological changes induced by DENA to the control values. In conclusion, data from this study suggest that: (1) decreased mRNA expression of GSHPx, CAT and GST during DENA-induced initiation of hepatic carcinogenesis, (2) TQ supplementation prevents the development of DENA-induced initiation of liver cancer by decreasing oxidative stress and preserving both the activity and mRNA expression of antioxidant enzymes.

D.C. Residents to Take Action at City Hall During Peoples Climate March to Advance Local Climate Justice Campaigns "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Tens of Thousands Will Call on D.C. City Council to Cut Ties with Wells Fargo and Put a  Price on Carbon, as They Pass John A. Wilson Building During March for Climate, Jobs, and Justice

 

WASHINGTON On April 29 during the Peoples Climate March, two D.C.-based climate justice campaigns will engage tens of thousands marching down Pennsylvania Ave. past the John A. Wilson Building to call on D.C. City Councilmembers to support two related campaigns for climate justice. One campaign, led by 24 local organizations in the Put A Price On It D.C. Coalition, aims to place a fee on carbon emissions and equitably rebate the revenue back to D.C. residents. The other, led by the D.C. ReInvest Coalition, is advocating for D.C. to divest city funds from Wells Fargo over its investments in the Dakota Access Pipeline. Volunteers will display banners on the steps of City Hall, lead chants and speeches, and distribute flyers giving marchers instructions to take action.

The action will take place during the highly-anticipated March for Climate, Jobs and Justice, where tens of thousands of climate justice activists will march against Donald Trump and his climate science-denying cabinet. D.C. ReInvest Coalition  and the Put a Price on It D.C. Coalition are joining forces to ensure that this national mobilization remains rooted in local campaigns for climate justice and propels its host city forward.

  • What: Thousands of marchers at Peoples Climate March take action at City Hall demanding D.C. City Council support local carbon rebate and Wells Fargo divestment campaigns
  • When: Saturday, April 29, 2017, 12:30 2:30 PM
  • Where: Steps of Penn. Ave. entrance, John A. Wilson Building, 1350 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20004,

Japanese Artist Transforms Old Amazon Cardboard Boxes into Amazing Sculptures "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Amazon Cardboard Box Sculptures Cardboard Sculptures Cardboard Art Cardboard Box Art Monami Ohno

Artist Monami Ohno is formally trained in 3-D animation, but the Japanese creative has made a name for herself as a sculptor. Instead of clay, wood, or other conventional materials, however, Ohno has opted to specialize in an unusual medium: cardboard. Specifically, Ohno uses discarded Amazon boxes to her create her collection of jaw-dropping and detailed cardboard sculptures.

Using the recycled paper products, Ohno crafts an eclectic array of cardboard art. Some of her most impressive sculptural works of art are high-spirited creatures and monsters (including a miniature Godzilla), realistic representations of food and drink, functioning shoes, and elaborate vehicles. Each piece is composed of multiple parts intricately pieced together, allowing Ohno to impressively achieve various textures, patterns, and features. Given the level of detail apparent in each piece of upcycled art, the simplicity of Ohno's tools may surprise you. To make her striking sculptures , she uses only a pair of scissors, a standard box cutter, a ruler, glue, and masking tape.

Ohno began working with the uncommon material when she realized that, due to the cost of shop fees, she did not have the resources to animate as frequently as she'd like. As she sought another artistic outlet to take up, she began experimenting with some old Amazon boxes she had been holding on to. I tried making something out of [the boxes], she explains, found out that cardboard is a surprisingly fun medium to work with, and from there I really started getting into creating with it!

Inspiration from Charles Bukowski: You Might Be Old, Your Life May Be Crappy, But You Can Still Make Good Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Now more than ever, theres tremendous pressure to make it big while youre young.

Pity the 31-year-old who fails to make it onto a 30-under-30 list

The soon-to-graduate high schooler passed over for YouTube stardom

The great hordes who creep into middle age without so much as a TED Talk to their names

Social media definitely magnifies the sensation that an unacceptable number of our peers have been granted first-class cabins aboard a ship thats sailed without us. If we werent so demoralized, wed sue Instagram for creating the impression that everyone elses #VanLife is leading to book deals and profiles in The New Yorker.

Dont despair, dear reader. Charles Bukowski is about to make your day from beyond the grave.

In 1993, at the age of 73, the late writer and self-described spoiled old toad, took a break from recording the audiobook of Run With the Hunted to reflect upon his crappy life.

Some of these thoughts made it into Drew Christies animation, above, a reminder that the smoothest road isnt always necessarily the richest one.

In service of his ill-paying muse, Bukowski logged decades in unglamorous jobs dishwasher, truckdriver and loader, gas station attendant, stock boy, warehouseman, shipping clerk, parking lot attendant, Red Cross orderly, elevator operator, and most notoriously, postal carrier and clerk. These gigs gave him plenty of material, the sort of real world experience that eludes those upon whom literary fame and fortune smiles early.

Thymoquinone up-regulates PTEN expression and induces apoptosis in doxorubicin-resistant human breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mutat Res. 2011 Jan 10 ;706(1-2):28-35. Epub 2010 Oct 30. PMID: 21040738 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone up-regulates PTEN expression and induces apoptosis in doxorubicin-resistant human breast cancer cells. Abstract:  The use of innocuous naturally occurring compounds to overcome drug resistance and cancer recalcitrance is now in the forefront of cancer research. Thymoquinone (TQ) is a bioactive constituent of the volatile oil derived from seeds of Nigella sativa Linn. TQ has shown promising anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumor activities through different mechanisms. However, the effect of TQ on cell signaling and survival pathways in resistant cancer cells has not been fully delineated. Here, we report that TQ greatly inhibits doxorubicin-resistant human breast cancer MCF-7/DOX cell proliferation. TQ treatment increased cellular levels of PTEN proteins, resulting in a substantial decrease of phosphorylated Akt, a known regulator of cell survival. The PTEN expression was accompanied with elevation of PTEN mRNA. TQ arrested MCF-7/DOX cells at G2/M phase and increased cellular levels of p53 and p21 proteins. Flow cytometric analysis and agarose gel electrophoresis revealed a significant increase in Sub-G1 cell population and appearance of DNA ladders following TQ treatment, indicating cellular apoptosis. TQ-induced apoptosis was associated with disrupted mitochondrial membrane potential and activation of caspases and PARP cleavage in MCF-7/DOX cells. Moreover, TQ treatment increased Bax/Bcl2 ratio via up-regulating Bax and down-regulating Bcl2 proteins. More importantly, PTEN silencing by target specific siRNA enabled the suppression of TQ-induced apoptosis resulting in increased cell survival. Our results reveal that up-regulation of the key upstream signaling factor, PTEN, in MCF-7/DOX cells inhibited Akt phosphorylation, which ultimately causes increase in their regulatory p53 levels affecting the induction of G2/M cell cycle arrest and apoptosis. Overall results provide mechanistic insights for understanding the molecular basis and utility of the anti-tumor activity of TQ.

An interactive map connects landowners and forest change in one of the worlds most biodiverse places "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Borneo it is a name that evokes images of a faraway island, resplendent with tall trees, thick jungle, diverse cultural traditions, and many strange and wonderful animals, including proboscis monkeys, orangutans, and a host of flying critters, including squirrels, lemurs, lizards, frogs, and snakes. [caption id="attachment_195178" align="alignright" width="390"] A flying 'lemur', which actually glides using skin on its front legs and is called a colugo, is one of many gliding animals that rely on Borneo's forest canopy. Photo credit: Lip Kee Yap, CC 2.0[/caption] This vision would be accurate, 40 years ago. In 1973, old-growth forests covered 56 million hectares (140 million acres), 76% of Borneos land area (Gaveau et al, 2016). They supported over 15,000 different plant species. Between 1973 and 2015, however, over one-third of these forests (19 million ha / 48 million ac) were cleared. The prime culprit for forest loss in Borneo has been the industrial-scale clearing of forest to create tree plantations, especially oil palm and timber for making wood pulp and paper. Indonesia and Malaysia are the worlds top two producers of palm oil, together producing 85% of the global harvest. Oil palm alone, in fact, covers some 8 million ha (20 million ac) of Borneos landscape. Fires, mines, and dams have destroyed additional thousands of hectares of Bornean forest. David Gaveau, a scientist at the Indonesia-based Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR), told Mongabay-Wildtech, Borneo feeds the world with palm oil, a multi-billion-dollar business encompassing cosmetics, processed food and biofuels to drive our cars.

Venus Optics New Laowa 7.5mm f/2 is the Worlds Widest f/2 Lens for MFT "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Venus Optics has just officially announced its new Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT, a lens that we first got a glimpse at leading up to Photokina 2016. Its the worlds widest rectilinear f/2 lens for Micro Four Thirds cameras.

Equivalent to a 15mm lens in 35mm terms, the new manual focus lens is both light and compact, weighing just 0.44 pounds (200g) and measuring 55mm (~2.17in) long. Inside the lens are 13 elements in 9 groups, which include 2 aspherical elements and 3 extra-low dispersion elements. The filter thread on the front of the lens is 46mm.

This optical design successfully minimizes the distortion and chromatic aberrations to its lowest but at the same time, delivers a superb optical performance from corners to corners, Venus says.

The focal length provides a 110 angle of view and is well suited for applications such as astrophotography, landscape photography, and low-light situations.

Other specs and features of the lens include a minimum focusing distance of 4.72 inches (12cm) and a maximum reproduction ratio of 1:9.

Here are some sample photos captured using the Laowa 7.5mm f/2 MFT:

Public Petition: Support for People Affected by Prescribed Drug Dependence "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Recovery and Renewal is an independent (unfunded) patient self-help group which I was asked to co-found in Scotland in 2013, with the aim of supporting people recovering from the effects of drugs such as benzodiazepines and antidepressants taken as prescribed. Initially we held local meetings in our home town (Helensburgh, on the West Coast of Scotland) and invited people to join taster sessions for a variety of alternative non-medical therapies, with a view to supporting recovery. We found that many people were suffering very severe and complex difficulties with their medications, which were not recognised as such by their doctors.

We then began to try to find sources of appropriate support and help for patients experiencing these issues with dependence and withdrawal and found that there were no existing dedicated support services in Scotland.

This, in due course, led to us becoming peripherally involved with the establishment of the Council for Evidence-Based Psychiatry (UK), and participating as a stakeholder in the British Medical Association (BMA) Board of Science project Prescribed Drugs Associated with Dependence and Withdrawal. And we are now involved with the All Party Parliamentary Group for Prescription Drug Dependence at Westminster (see more about this here).

As Scotlands health services are partially devolved from UK Westminster government, and having been repeatedly ignored and/or effectively sidelined when attempting to raise the issues of concern with those at the helm of Scottish health services and Scottish Government (as individuals and as a group), we decided recently that we needed to formally raise the issues ourselves by submitting a formal public petition to the Scottish Parliament.

The petition has been set up on behalf of Recovery and Renewal to raise awareness of the plight of individuals in Scotland who are affected by dependence on and withdrawal from prescribed benzodiazepines and antidepressants and specifically to ask the Scottish Government to support the BMAs UK-wide call for action to provide timely and appropriate support for individuals affected.

Several participants of the Recovery and Renewal group are Experts by Experience who have many years of personal experience of taking benzodiazepines and/or antidepressants as presc...

Putin Meets Abe, Warns North Korea Situation Has Seriously Deteriorated "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the crisis over North Koreas nuclear program is deepening after the issue dominated talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Moscow.

He and Abe believe the situation on the Korean peninsula has seriously deteriorated, Putin said Thursday after the Kremlin meeting. We call on all states involved in the regions affairs to refrain from military rhetoric and seek peaceful, constructive dialogue.

Abe said he and Putin spent a long time discussing North Korea during the three hours of talks that also focused on resolving a seven-decade long dispute over four islands seized by the Soviet Union at the end of World War II. The issue has prevented Russia and Japan from signing a peace accord.

Cross River superhighway changes course in Nigeria "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The path of a major highway project in eastern Nigeria has been altered in response to concerns from local and international groups about its impact on wildlife and communities. The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), based at the Bronx Zoo in New York City, immediately celebrated the shift. We did it, said John Calvelli, the organizations executive vice president for public affairs, in a statement. The superhighway has been rerouted and wildlife saved. [caption id="attachment_195195" align="aligncenter" width="768"] The original (left) and rerouted (right) Cross River highway project and Cross River National Park in southeaster Nigeria. Map courtesy of WCS.[/caption] WCS and other NGOs and scientific organizations have campaigned against the construction of a six-lane, 260-kilometer (162-mile) Cross River Highway because it cut through Nigerias Cross River National Park, which provides important habitat for wildlife, including IUCN Red List species and subspecies such as forest elephants (Loxodonta cyclotis), drills (Mandrillus leucophaeus) and Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes ellioti). Identified as a biodiversity hotspot, the park also serves as the one of the last refuges for the roughly 300 remaining Cross River gorilla (Gorilla gorilla diehli). The new highway route has been moved to the fringes of the national park, according to a map produced by WCS. The original route for the 160-mile superhighway, which included a 12-mile-wide buffer, would have been catastrophic for the Cross River rainforest, demolishing some of the last-remaining habitat of the highly endangered Cross River gorilla, Calvelli said in the statement. Officials reduced the buffer to 140 meters (459 feet)

Rick Wakemans Prog-Rock Opera Adaptation of George Orwells 1984 "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Weve seen sales of George Orwells dystopian nightmare scenario 1984 peak in recent months. Millions of readers seek to understand the brave new world we live in through Orwells vision. Parallels abound. We might reasonably ascribe to the ruling party in the U.S. and its media apparatus the slogan IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH. But our experience of reality never fails to validate that old saw about truth and fiction. As Case Western Reserve professor of history John Broich writes, 2017 is stranger than Orwell imagined.

The state doesnt need a Ministry of Truth to censure the information that reaches us. We are simply overwhelmed with alternative authorities and realities who delegitimize the facts and accelerate the decline in standards of evidence and reasoning in the US electorate. A sad state of affairs. But in every decade since the publication of Orwells novel, critics, journalists, and pundits have seen evidence of his dire forecast. In the titular year itself, Manhattan College professor Edmond van den Bossche summed up the general tenor in The New York Times: In our 1984 the warnings of George Orwell are more than ever relevant.




Van den Bossche wrote of NATO and the UN. But he might have written about MTV and CNN both in their infancywho birthed 24-hour cable news and reality TV.  What Orwell understood about state power, later thinkers like Guy DeBord, Roland Barthes, and Jean Baudrillard built careers writing about: the importance not only of surveillance, but also of spectacle that blurs the lines of truth and fiction as it overwhelms our senses. Its largely this key theme, Id argue, that has rendered 1984 so attractive to some of the most spectacular of musicians, including David Bowiewhose...

From Oct. 5 through 8, Frith Forge 2017 will be held in Petzow, Germany. Organized by the Troths International Relations and Exchange Program, the event is designed as an international conference among inclusive Asatru/Heathen organizations and individuals.

According to the official website for the October conference,

Frith Forge is the space and time on an international level to build alliances, understanding, and friendships among us instead of compartmentalizing further in an industrialized world. Lets learn from each other with respect and fellowship to forge frith [Old Norse peace] among us. Together we can enjoy this opportunity to discuss inclusion in religion and to promote cultural, religious, and educational exchange.

Several organizations have confirmed that they are sending leaders or prominent members as representatives to present about their groups, including Asatru UK , Distelfink Sippschaft (USA), De Negen Werelden (Netherlands), and Verein fr Germanisches Heidentum (Germany). Other Pagan groups that include Heathen members will also be participating, including r nDraocht Fin: A Druid Fellowship (USA) and Pagan Federation International Deutschland.

In addition to these introductions to the various organizations, the conference will include rituals, workshops, group discussions, presentations on a variety of topics, and vendor tables.

Although based in the United States, the international satr and Heathen organization known the Troth currently has members served by official stewards in Australia, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. A branch in the U.K. was started in 1993, chartered as an autonomous branch in 1995 and due to increasing interest from non-U.K. Europeans became Ring of Troth Europe later the same year.

Hey guys!! Are you sitting down? Good. Cause Im about to blow your freaking mind. When you think of The Home Depot, what comes to mind? Tools? Wood? Plants? Orange smiling faces? Add another thing to that list, HOME DECOR! They just rolled out their new decor line, and youre not going to believe how terribly good it is.

If your house is feeling a little lost, one of my best tips to make it feel like a home and add some critical personality is to mix vintage and new. Vintage pieces add the soul and new pieces make the space feel updated.

As most of you know, we moved out of our house in January and into the inlaws basement. When Home Depot reached out about styling a space with some of my favorite pieces I couldnt shout yes loud enough. I love paying it forward and no one helps me more with the kiddos than my adorable sister in law Lindsay. (You might remember her daughter Macies bedroom that we made over a few years ago.) Her entryway is the lucky space. She recently repainted and installed new flooring and I was so excited to give her a little design nudge.

Every time I go to my storage unit, my heart breaks a little for the pieces that are just sitting in there. I know, its a little dramatic, but when that rolling door opens and I see all of my favorite things just sitting there collecting dust I want to lovingly console each of them.

Why You Should Think Twice About Prenatal Ultrasounds. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"




Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

The casual observer might be forgiven for wondering why the medical profession is now involved in the wholesale examination of pregnant patients with machines emanating vastly different powers of energy which is not proven to be harmless to obtain information which is not proven to be of any clinical value by operators who are not certified as competent to perform the operations.

 Sarah Buckley, MD

By: Shelby Salinas 

Im now in my second trimester 14 weeks, to be exact and I have yet to hear my babys heartbeat.
Its a weird feeling, to be honest. During my first pregnancy, I had no idea about the dangers of prenatal ultrasound. The second I saw those two pink lines, I knew I had to get an appointment with a doctor as soon as possible. I had to know that my baby was alive and healthy. I had to know that this was real. And for many of us modern mothers, that requires a heartbeat.

But then I got my hands on one of the most eye-opening books I have ever read: Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering by Sarah Buckley. She raises a question that nobody else is even bothering to ask. 

Is it safe to expose your unborn baby to ultrasound? 

In short, the answer is we dont know. Now Im not sure about you, but that just doesnt cut it for me. Why would I want my child to be a human experiment for this technology?

RegTech for Fintech May Be the Next Big Thing in the Bitcoin and Blockchain Space "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Coinfirm estimates that RegTech can reduce compliance costs for financial services companies by as much as 50 percent.RegTech may be the next big thing in fintech as digital currency and blockchain startups bump up against new government regulations, resulting in an increase in the demand for legal compliance information that will help companies navigate regulatory requirements and conduct risk assessments.Banks and other financial institutions are also looking for cost-effective ways to assess the risks of using new blockchain technologies in different jurisdictions and to modify their practices to minimize increasing compliance costs. Accenture estimates that business compliance costs could drop by 30 to 50 percent at the product level with the use of a blockchain database.In its recent news release, Coinfirm estimates that companies can save as much as 50 percent by using regulatory and compliance technology. As recognized experts in the regulatory compliance field, the U.K.-based startup is well placed to benefit from this growing demand. Pawel Kuskowski, Coinfirm CEO and cofounder, noted recently that RegTech is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to take advantage of the inevitable increase in rules and regulations that accompany a new field of enterprise.Kuskowski told Bitcoin Magazine:For us, challenges include segmented regulations for cryptocurrencies or blockchain transactions on local levels.

Nigella Sativa treatment protected the rat's intestinal tissue against intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Invest Surg. 2010 Feb ;23(1):21-7. PMID: 20233001 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of Nigella sativa on intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: In previous studies, it has been demonstrated that Nigella Sativa (NS) has protective effects against ischemia reperfusion injury on various organs. However, its protective effects on intestinal tissue against ischemia reperfusion injury are unclear. We aimed to determine whether NS prevents intestinal ischemia-reperfusion injury in rats.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Thirty rats were divided into three groups as sham (group 1), control (group 2), and NS-treatment group (group 3). All rats underwent intestinal ischemia for 60 min followed by a 60-min period of reperfusion. Rats were intraperitoneally infused only 0.9% saline solutions in group 2. Rats in the group 3 received NS (0,2 mL/kg) intraperitoneally, before ischemia and before reperfusion. Total antioxidant capacity (TAC), catalase (CAT), total oxidative status (TOS), oxidative stress index (OSI), and myeloperoxidase (MPO) in ileum tissue were measured. Also, ileum tissue histopathology was evaluated by a light microscope.RESULTS: The levels of liver enzymes in group 3 were significantly lower than those in group 2 (p

Virginia Law Expands Healthcare Freedom "IndyWatch Feed Health"

shutterstock_102637724-virginia-flag-1200By Mike Maharrey

Yesterday, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed legislation into law that will help facilitate healthcare freedom in the state.

Del. R. Steven Landes (R-Verona) sponsored House Bill 2053 (HB2053). Sen. William Stanley Jr. (R-Moneta) sponsored the Senate companion bill (SB800). The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code.

Both HB2053 and SB800 overwhelmingly passed through the House and Senate. After the legislature approved two technical amendment recommended by McAuliffe, the governor signed the bills Wednesday. The law will go into effect in July.

Last year, McAullife vetoed a similar measure.

Male Photographers, Please Dont Be THAT Guy "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

On the second day of an amazing photography expo and convention, I was sharing lunch with a new friend and chatting about our upcoming photo shoot. Suddenly, we were interrupted with an onslaught of oh baby, thats it, you got it, baby girl, give me that pout, and the most awesome of them all: I know youre only 18 and moody, but I need you to pop! I need you to shine! Shine for me, baby!

The man responsible for this was obviously a photographer by looking at his holster full of lenses and his portable octabox. The model he was shooting was young, inexperienced, and from the look on her face, mortified.

He then asked my friend and I to move over 3 feet because we were crowding his scene. Neither I nor my friend moved an inch. He then said Never mind, ladies. I tell you what, Ill adapt. Ill f**king adapt. Because thats what professionals do, dont we ladies. Ill just be the one to move over, because it was that difficult for you.

What I did next, I am not proud of but as photographer who shoots primarily women and seeing the disgust on the poor models face I had to say something.

So I said No, you are annoying. But with some extra bad words that I doubt can be printed here.

Guys. This is for you.

DO. NOT. BE. THAT. GUY.

Like I said, I am also a photographer. Almost all of my clients are women. I have helped many women see themselves as strong, beautiful, and fearless, often when they have such a hard time doing so.

I am also a woman, one who doesnt like to be photographed because I hate my nose and no longer have the body I once did. One who does not deserve to be talked to like that especially during the nerve-wracking vulnerability of a photo shoot. I mean, it is always nice to give a model/client feedback during a photo shoot. While a You have a great smile or a You are doing great go a long way to help them feel comfortable and safe, barking sleazy clichs at them will not.

I know many male photographers in my community who are amazingly talented and have mostly female clientele. These men are successful because they respect women and would never say those types of things to them.

If you, as a male photographer, have said any of the aforementioned statements or anything similar to those, please reconsider your hobby/career. You are not impressing anyone. You are not making yourself look good. You are making women all around you cringe and want to take a shower with bleach.

And even worse, if you just bought a camera to get...

Hyperrealistic Paintings Illuminate the Glistening Beauty of Colorful Crystals "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Crystal Artwork

Toronto-based artist Carly Waito is deeply inspired by the beautiful crystalline structures of minerals, such as amethyst and quartz. Boasting a bevy of spellbinding shapes and sizes, Waito has depicted their sparkling details in her crystal paintings. Their radiance practically leaps off the panels, and the textures are so realistic they seem like they can almost be touched.

In each piece, Waito creates an amazing sense of depth and composition, and her hyperrealistic techniques reveal her expertise with lighting and reflections. The tones and fine glints bounce off the minerals; from the Watermelon Tourmaline to the lime green Vesuvianite, the gradations in each work are flawlessly illustrated and their visual complexities celebrated.

Waitos work pursues inspirations from the natural world. As shared in her artists statement, she emphasizes a focus towards geology, geometry, light, and a sense of wonder and curiosity. These themes are uniquely encompassed by the tiny mineral specimens which have become her particular obsession. She subtly guides the viewer's eye, inviting them to focus on the beauty and magic that is present even in natures tiniest objects, if one looks closely enough and with a curious mind.

A selection of Waitos mineral paintings spanning from 2009 to 2015 can be seen here.

The present study conclude that thymoquinone reduced acute endoxemia-induced liver dysfunction. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pak J Pharm Sci. 2010 Apr ;23(2):131-7. PMID: 20363688 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone supplementation ameliorates acute endotoxemia-induced liver dysfunction in rats. Abstract:  Endotoxemia caused by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) produced an inflammatory condition contributing to multiple organ failure. This study was carried out to investigate the effects of thymoquinone (TQ), the main constituent of Nigella sativa seeds, against LPS-induced hepatotoxicity. The obtained data revealed that LPS markedly depleted liver reduced glutathione (GSH) and significantly increased the level of malondialdehyde (MDA) and the activity of caspase-3 enzyme in the liver. Serum tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and bilirubin levels and the activities of alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and gamma-glutamyl transferase (gamma-GT) enzymes were markedly increased in LPS-treated rats. TQ supplementation resulted in normalization of liver GSH and decreases in the levels of MDA and caspase-3 activity in the liver with reduction of serum TNF-alpha, serum total bilirubin and the activities of ALP and gamma-GTenzymes. Histopathological examination revealed that TQ administration improved LPS-induced pathological abnormalities in liver tissues. The present study conclude that TQ reduced acute endoxemia-induced liver dysfunction at least in part by its anti-inflammatory, antiapoptotic and antioxidant activities.

Colorado Law Expands Healthcare Freedom "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Colorado (USA) flag waving on the windBy Mike Maharrey

On Monday, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper signed a bill into law that will help facilitate healthcare freedom in the state.

A bipartisan coalition of two representatives and two senators sponsored House Bill 1115 (HB1115). The legislation specifies that direct primary care agreements (sometimes called medical retainer agreements) do not constitute insurance, thereby freeing doctors and patients from the onerous requirements and regulations under the state insurance code.

The bill also defines what constitutes a direct primary care agreement and creates a modest regulatory structure.

The House initially approved HB1115 by a 65-0 vote. The Senate then passed the measure with some technical amendments by a 35-0 vote. Earlier this month, the House unanimously concurred with the Senate amendments, With Gov. Hickenloopers signature, the law will go into effect later this summer.

N. sativa seed supplementation during specific immunotherapy of allergic rhinitis may be considered a potential adjuvant therapy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Med Princ Pract. 2010 ;19(3):206-11. Epub 2010 Mar 29. PMID: 20357504 Abstract Title:  Potential adjuvant effects of Nigella sativa seeds to improve specific immunotherapy in allergic rhinitis patients. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of Nigella sativa seed supplementation on symptom levels, polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) functions, lymphocyte subsets and hematological parameters of allergic rhinitis.SUBJECTS AND METHODS: Twenty-four patients randomly selected from an experimental group of 31 (mean age 34 years) sensitive to house dust mites with allergic rhinitis and a control group of 8 healthy volunteers (mean age 23 years) were treated with allergen-specific immunotherapy in conventional doses for 30 days. After a month of immunotherapy, 12 of the 24 patients and the 8 healthy volunteers were given N. sativa seed supplementation (2 g/day orally) for 30 days. The remaining 12 patients continued only on immunotherapy during the same period. The other 7 patients were given 0.1 ml saline solution subcutaneously once a week as a placebo. The symptom scores, PMN functions, lymphocyte subsets and other hematological parameters were evaluated before and after all treatment periods.RESULTS: There was a statistically significant increase in the phagocytic and intracellular killing activities of PMNs of patients receiving specific immunotherapy, especially after the addition of N. sativa seed. The CD8 counts of patients receiving specific immunotherapy plus N. sativa seed supplementation significantly increased compared to patients receiving only specific immunotherapy. PMN functions of healthy volunteers significantly increased after N. sativa seed supplementation compared to baseline.CONCLUSION: N. sativa seed supplementation during specific immunotherapy of allergic rhinitis may be considered a potential adjuvant therapy.

The Democrats Won This Round, And It Wasnt Even Close "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

fight

We have just witnessed one of the greatest routs in modern American political history. We are still waiting to see if a spending agreement can be reached so that a government shutdown at midnight on Friday can be averted, but whether a shutdown actually happens or not, the Democrats have won this round by a landslide. Even though the Republicans control the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives, during these budget negotiations the Republicans have backed down on major issue after major issue. The Democrats are acting like they own Washington D.C., and the Republicans are letting them get away with it. For years Republican politicians have had a reputation for being gutless and spineless, but in 2017 they are taking their lack of courage to a whole new level.

Since a border wall was the number one issue that Donald Trump campaigned on, many had been anticipating that he would battle hard to get funding for it. But instead he folded like a 20 dollar suit, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has admitted to the press that he was anticipating that this might happen

As for the broader funding standoff, I thought one of two things. I thought hed either back down. Or hed do [a shutdown], and it would be a fight wed win, said Schumer. When the president just puts together his own plan, which is almost always hard-right given who the people around him are, he has problems.

And since the Republicans control the White House, the Senate and the House, many social conservatives believed that this would be the time when Planned Parenthood would finally be defunded.

But that is not going to happen either, and the truth is that the Republicans did not even put up a fight.

On Thursday, the Democrats decided to reach even further. They warned that they would shut the government down if the Republicans brought a bill to replace Obamacare up for a vote by the end of this week, and within hou...

Khloe Kardashian Sued for Posting Copyrighted Photo of Herself on Instagram "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Celebrity Khlo Kardashian has been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over a photo of herself she posted to Instagram. Shes being accused of removing copyright info found on the image and sharing it to her millions of followers without permission.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the suit was filed by U.K.-based photo agency Xposure Photos. According to court documents filed in California, the photo at the center of the dispute was captured by photographer Manuel Muoz and licensed by Xposure to The Daily Mail.

Each of the photos in the Daily Mail article, which is about the 32-year-old Kardashian arriving with her sister at a Miami restaurant, has a clear copyright notice in the corner attributing the image to Xposure Photos.

Xposure says that Kardashian copied the photo, removed the copyright notice, and posted it to her Instagram account that has over 66 million followers.

Plaintiff never licensed the Photograph to defendants, the lawsuit reads. Nevertheless, defendants have used, and continue to use, the Photograph without authorization or permission from plaintiff to do so. Specifically, Kardashian copied the Photograph and distributed it on Instagram on September 14, 2016. The copy of the Photograph that Kardashian distributed on Instagram had been altered to remove the CMI [copyright management information] showing plaintiff as the copyright owner of the image.

International panhandling and vocabularies of motive "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Flashback Friday.

Adam Smith observed in his Lectures on Jurisprudence (1762) a series of talks that he gave at the University of Glasgow that national character plays a significant role in economic transactions: the Dutch, he said, are more faithful to their word and better at performing agreements than the English, and the English more faithful than the Scots.

In the past few months, Ive observed a similar kind of cultural variation in a much more prosaic setting: the panhandling interaction.

If youre from North America, as I am, youve probably seen people on the street requesting money from strangers using appeals such as HomelessPlease Help or Homeless Veteran.  There are a number of variations, but homelessness is the common theme in many cases.

Photo by Steve Baker.

Elsewhere in the world, panhandlers use quite different rationalesor what the great mid-century sociologist C. Wright Mills would call vocabularies of motive. Mills wasnt interested in what actually motivated peoplesuch as what psychologists would term needs or drivesbut rather in the ideologically-charged terms they used to justify their actions to themselves and others. As he observed, some motives are more acceptable than others, and we can learn something about local cultures based on what passes for a good reason.

So its sociologically interesting that within the North American context, the concept of home has such resonance that the claim of homelessness is...

Know your customer "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

When Satoshi released the first windows-only Bitcoin binaries to the world, it had to do everything. It was a wallet and a miner and every running node was precious, because with only a handful of nodes the network was fragile.

While I was lead developer even more functionality was added mostly developer-friendly hooks (additions to the JSON-RPC programming interface) to make it easier for people to build stuff for what was then a tiny community.

I was the only full-time Bitcoin developer for a couple of years, and I tried to write code for things I thought would have the highest impact that other people werent already doing. Usually that was something boring but really important (like the testnet, the unit testing framework, or the regression testing framework; my last major code contribution was a performance benchmarking framework). But sometimes I had time to work on new stuff, and I always started by thinking about what was the most likely path to Bitcoins success.

I didnt always make the right choice. Before I chose to add functionality to the wallet programming interface (the infamous accounts feature that everybody, including me, came to hate) I remember asking myself if I thought Bitcoin should first be used mostly be used as a store of value or a means of exchange. In hindsight, I should have spent more time working on the secure store of value problem; maybe Core would have great support for creating paper wallets and sweeping funds from them if Id chosen differently. Maybe Instawallet wouldnt have been built although I think it is debatable whether Instawallet was positive or negative for Bitcoins growth (it was certainly positive until it got shut down and its users had to jump through hoops to get their BTC back).

The Bitcoin ecosystem is incredibly rich and robust these days. I cant keep track of all the development that is being done, and Im excited to see multiple implementations of the Bitcoin protocol slowly starting to gain acceptance. It will be a long process, but moving away from One True Implementation will be very good for Bitcoin in the long run.

My advice to anybody leading an open source Bitcoin implementation project is to keep it as simple as possible and know your customer. These days there is no reason to do it all; figure out who your customer is and then build exactly what they need that they cant already get from somewhere else.

For example, if your customer is big mining pools and miners, talk to them. Find out what theyre running and figure out what they need. If your software will be running on Internet-facing machines then it shouldnt be storing private keys at all it is really bad security practice to keep private keys on the same machine that is talking to the...

Metamorfosis: Franz Kafkas Best-Known Short Story Gets Adapted Into a Tim Burtonesque Spanish Short Film "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In one sense, given their spare settings and allegorical feel, the stories of Franz Kafka could play out anywhere. But in another, one can only with difficulty separate those stories from the late 19th- and early 2oth-century central Europe in which Kafka himself spent his short life. This simultaneous connection to place and placelessness (and also, per David Foster Wallaces interpretation, playfulness, or at least humor of some kind) has made Kafkas work appealing material indeed for animators, some of whose work weve featured here on Open Culture before.

When filmmakers try their hands at live-action Kafka adaptations, though, they tend to find themselves performing acts of not just artistic but cultural transplantation. Just last year we posted Dominic Allens Two Men, an award-winning short film that relocates Kafkas parable Passers-by to a remote section of Western Australia. Working with a much longer and better-known piece of the Kafka canon, director Fran Estvezs Metamorfosis brings the tale of Gregor Samsas sudden transformation into a large insect to Spain or into the Spanish language, anyway.

The recipient of quite a few awards itself in South America and Europe (including a festival in Kafkas own birthplace, the current Czech Republic), Metamorfosis combines Kafkas still-startling man-turned-bug first-person narration with both stark black-and-white footage and illustrations to create just the right claustrophobic, askew atmosphere. The set design, which at certain moments feels right out of early Tim Burton, underscores the fairy-tale aspect of this grim work of imagination. But then, at the very end, the aesthetic ceiling lifts, widening the viewers perspective on not just the movies foregoing sixteen minutes but on the nature of The Metamorphosis, Kafkas original story, itself though, alas, things still dont end particularly well for poor old Gregor Samsa.

Ether Price Analysis: Rising Bitcoin Tide Lifts ETH to New Target High "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

As Bitcoin breaks its own all-time high (ATH) on multiple exchanges, it appears as though a rising tide raises all boats.Most important, GDAX/Coinbase, a crucial on/off ramp for digital currencies, has taken the lead in ETH/USD volume and is reporting higher ETH/USD than BTC/USD volume over the past 24 hours. This is anecdotal evidence for a key metric of new money coming into the space. Although the $45 premium remains on Bitfinex due to USD withdrawal halt, GDAX now leads in volume and holds a small premium above a few of the other exchanges as well. Poloniex and ETH/BTC volume continue to lead globally (not shown).Ethereum hash rate also continues to push ATHs almost daily, showing strong confidence in miner support.For weeks now, Ive been watching the slow formation of the head and shoulders bearish reversal chart pattern. The pattern convincingly formed with the appropriate and important descending volume profile. The trick with trading these patterns is to not jump the gun. The short entry signal is always a break of the horizontal support on volume. That never happened. Instead, price held above the 200 EMA and refused a bearish 50/200 EMA cross as well. When reversal patterns form and do not play out as expected, that is generally considered to be a strong continuation sign. Its also possible that this was simply a bullish continuation pennant all along, with a measured move target of ~$115 (0.088).Going forward, we should watch for price to test previous local highs and push for the 1.618 Fibonacci extension, yielding a target of ~$115 (0.0873). There is also a high probability that a higher high in price will not yield a higher high on the Relative Strength Index (RSI), a momentum oscillator. Although this result is days or a few weeks away at this point, watching out for this now will prevent you from entering a trade based on emotions. Sure, price can go parabolic at any time and break the rules of divergences, but should a divergence form, it suggests continuation is far less likely than reversal. We will also want to be watching volume. If volume does not break previous local highs, it adds to the bearish divergence confluence, all of which would suggest bullish momentum is waning. SummaryAs Bitcoin breaks ATHs, its likely that any digital currency on associated on-ramps increases as well, simply by association.Bitfinex ETH/USD premium continues and should continue until USD withdrawals resume, if ever. Although chart patterns and indicators were leaning bullish, price did not break down and is now projecting a target of ~$115. Watch for the new Ethereum ATH to occur and create a bearish divergence with a swift pullback in price.

A Spectacular Cross Section of Contemporary Indian Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Subodh Gupta, Untitled (Sushi conveyor belt) (2008), installation view (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

COLUMBUS, Ohio When it comes to exhibition-making, the Pizzuti Collection works entirely from the contemporary holdings of Ron and Ann Pizzuti, who are as avid in their championing of Columbus as they are in their appetite for diverse acquisitions, largely by living artists, the world over. Looking at the cross section of artists, media, and themes represented within the Pizzuti Collection (as showcased, for example, in the 2016 exhibition, Us Is Them), one could hardly consider this to be a limited pool from which to draw inspiration.

Bharti Kher, Landscape (above); Saskhi Gupta, Landscape of Waking Memories (below)

Certainly, at first pass, the Pizzutis newest exhibition, Visions from India, is a visual menagerie, offering no end of rich detail and kinetic spectacle. Curator Greer Pagano, who worked closely with the Pizzutis over multiple years to construct this exhibition, is quick to emphasize that Visions from India is in no way intended to stand as a comprehensive survey of Indian art if, indeed, it were even possible to in any way summarize the collective consciousness of a country with a population exceeding 1.2 billion.

10 of the Most Beautiful Photography Templates: What Sets Them Apart? "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The visual nature of the Internet makes it the ideal format for getting a photography portfolio in front of a wide audience. The problem that many photographers face, though, is finding a template that is eye-catching and easy to work with.

Full disclosure: This post was sponsored by Squarespace.

Fortunately, there are numerous examples of photography templates that offer the perfect blend of aesthetics and user friendliness. By taking a closer look at some of the most beautiful Squarespace photography templates available, you can learn what sets these options apart from a crowded sea of websites filled with images.

1. Forte

Going bold can be truly attention-grabbing, as the Forte template highlights. This is an ideal choice for photographers who have large scale imagery that contains visual contrast and compelling lines. Providing such a big example of the photographers work makes it easier for visitors to fully appreciate it. Having a subtle menu at the top right helps keeps people around without being so distracting that it detracts from the initial image.

2. Wexley

People Are Planting Flowers in Potholes Their Citys Neglecting to Fix "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Pothole Flowers Flower Protest Guerrilla Gardening Protest Art Pothole Art

Paige Breithart

Today, many contemporary artists and creative problem-solvers strive to come up with inventive solutions to aesthetic problems. In addition to broken artifacts and forgotten everyday objects, works enhanced by these imaginative individuals include public spaces and streetsnamely, those plagued with neglected potholes. In a unique twist on ephemeral art, people have begun transforming the unsightly cracks and holes into beautiful, miniature gardens.

To create each piece of flower protest art, the guerrilla gardeners' first fill the holes with soil. They then transplant colorful flowers like daffodils and violets into the makeshift planters. As a result of their efforts, the streets are aesthetically enhanced. Additionally, the presence and prevalence of the potholes are accentuated, prompting passing pedestrians, drivers, and, hopefully, city officials, to take notice.

Pothole flowers have been popping up in cities around the world, from Chicago to London. Though many people are on-board with the movement, some are concerned that the distracting pieces of public art may be dangerous to drivers. Still, as one anonymous individual notes, the unfilled potholes themselves also pose a threat. Potholes are a real problem and have the potential to be death traps for bikers and cyclists and with cars there is an issue with blow-outs to wheels.

Given their positioning, the tiny gardens don't last long. Though their existence is fleeting, the people behind the protest believe that, however temporary, the miniature installations are serving their plant-y purpose and, ultimately, serving the public.

Fed up with the state of their cities' streets, many people have opted to beautify the roads with flowers.

Simple Tips for Better Vacuuming (AND A GIVEAWAY!!!) "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Simple Tips for Better Vacuuming

*This post is sponsored.

I am kind of a practical girl. A couple of years ago for my birthday I asked for a paint sprayer, for Christmas last year I asked for some new pots and pans and for Mothers Day I asked for a new vacuum. I know its not everyones jam, but having nice new things to help around the house really make me happy because they help me with my everyday tasks. Unfortunately that new vacuum didnt last long (it started squealing like a dying cat and even cleaning and unclogging every part of it didnt help) so recently when liZ and I were each given a brand new Maytag vacuum and the box arrived I was as giddy as a school girl.

And when I got it out of the box I found that I love it even more. Its lightweight but has suction like nobodys business and my kids even thing its pretty fantastic.

It has attachments that workand if you push the back lever twice the vacuum will lay completely flat so that you can get underneath furniture. Now thats something that my old vacuum couldnt doits an awesome feature.

Also, because my house has so many different rugs and carpets to vacuum I also love that on the back of the vacuum there is a height adjustment knob with settings designed for all different surfaces. It will do anything from hardwood floors to a shag rug at the turn of a dial.

Concerning Study Shows Glyphosate Herbicide Harms Unborn Children "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

At a childrens health conference earlier this month, the results of a study were presented which show that glyphosate, the main component in the Monsanto herbicide, RoundUp, is detected in pregnant women and could lead to adverse outcomes, including shorter gestation times and lower birth weights.

The news comes just weeks after the USDA scrapped plans to start testing food for glyphosate.

For the study, researchers tested and tracked 69 pregnant women and found that the presence of glyphosate levels in the womens bodily fluids correlated with unfavorable birth outcomes.

The study, which is still in the preliminary stages, is a project of the Childrens Environmental Health Network (CEHN), which is studying the effects of the chemical on reproductive and childrens health amid rising herbicide use in the Midwest.

Paul Winchester, M.D., member of the research team involved with this study, medical director of the neonatal intensive care unit at the Franciscan St. Francis Health system and professor of clinical pediatrics at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Indiana, said glyphosate exposure in pregnant women is a huge issue, adding:

Everyone should be concerned about this.

Concerning Findings of the Study

Preliminary work found glyphosate in the urine of 91% 63 out of 69 women receiving prenatal care through an Indiana obstetric practice. The data, collected over 2 years, from 2015-2016, revealed that women with high levels of glyphosate in their bodies had significantly shorter pregnancies, and gave birth to babies with lower adjusted birth weights.

So I sewed it up in half an hour and what do you know.it was exactly the shape and proportion I had been hankering after in my wardrobe. So I made 2 more!

The first being this incarnation in a pique type knit from Stoff & Stil. I love the irregular sketchy arrows and the monochrome makes it a really versatile addition.

Her works provide unusual shapes within the body of her subjects, opening up torsos to reveal elongated spirals and horizontal bars that seem to reveal an inner turmoil. Often the faces of her sculptures have blank or passive expressions, unknowing participants to the tangle of bronze which twists below.

Top Cardiologists: Saturated Fat NOT the Cause of Heart Disease "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Doctors have warned for decades that saturated fat clogs arteries and causes heart disease, and for decades the public believed it. I mean, why wouldnt we? Well, now 3 world-renowned cardiologists are saying that claim is just bunk  that drinking whole milk and eating real butter is not dangerous, after all. Theyre calling the claim that saturated fat leads to heart disease just plain wrong. [1]

Better yet, people who are still a little bit concerned about eating saturated fat can balance the score, so to speak, with a few simple lifestyle changes.

The group of doctors Dr. Aseem Malhotra; Professor Rita Redberg, of UCSF School of Medicine, San Francisco, and Pascal Meier of University Hospital Geneva and University College, London say there is no solid association between saturated fat consumption and a higher risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and death in adults. Even in people with established heart disease, reducing saturated fat alone doesnt reduce heart attacks. [2]

British cardiologist Dr. Aseem Malhotra, of Lister Hospital, and an adviser to the U.K. national obesity forum, says:

One thing thats very clear when you look at the totality of the evidence: saturated fat does not clog the heart arteries. And sadly, for many years  for decades, in fact  this has been the primary focus of treatment of heart disease and public health advice. [1]

Bad Advice Leads to Bad Eating Habits

As saturated fat became the purported harbinger of cardiovascular health doom, some people eschewed full-fat foods and replaced them with carbohydrates. But too many processed and refined carbs also increase the risk for heart disease, and cause the body to produce too much insulin. Over time, chronically high insulin levels cause the hormone to stop being able to insert glucose into the bodys cells for energy. This is known as insulin resistance.

Then, insulin resistance triggers an inflammatory response. This not only causes Type 2 diabetes, it also causes the arteries to harden.

In the United States, the sugar industry helped create the myth that saturated fat was bad for your heart, and directly profited from it. In the 1960s, the industry, then called the Sugar Association, paid Harvard researchers to author studies framing fat in a negative light, and framing sugar as fairly benign substance. Doctors believed the study (because, Harvard) and began urging their patients to cut fat from their diets.

Philippines bans new open-pit metal mines "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

QUEZON CITY, Philippines -- Prompted by powerful evidence of massive injury to communities and water supplies, and findings of rampant violations of environmental law, the Philippines has banned new open-pit gold, copper, nickel, and silver mines. The order to block any more open-pit metal mines in the Philippines comes a month after El Salvador became the world's first country to ban all metal mining. "We have suffered long enough," said Regina Lopez, the Philippine secretary of the environment, who announced the ban during a news conference here on April 27. "What are we doing? This goes against everything, everything that God wants. People are suffering so much. The Earth is suffering. It's wrong. And it will stop." The Chamber of Mines of the Philippines, the industry's influential trade group, did not respond to a request for an interview for this article. But Ronald S. Recidoro, the chamber's vice president for legal and policy, told the Business Mirror newspaper that the ban was "absurd" and "biased" against the mining industry. "It did not undergo any study," he said. The order to prevent new open-pit mines does not affect quarries and the country's sole open-pit coal mine. It was issued in the tenth month of an aggressive campaign by Lopez to force the Philippines mining industry to improve its practices and adhere to environmental law. On her first day in office last July, Lopez launched teams of compliance auditors to investigate how well the country's 40 big mines were following regulations to

Fluoride has no place in our drinking water Claire Viadro "IndyWatch Feed Health"

On Feb. 2, operational failures at OWASA increased fluoride levels to 8.4 times higher than normal. OWASAs dangerous fiasco cost local businesses an estimated $3 million to $5 million.

The substance added to OWASA water is fluorosilicic acid, a toxic corrosive. Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) information on fluorosilicic acid recommends its use for tanning of animal hides and hardening of cement. MSDS toxicity indications state that ingestion may cause burns of the gastrointestinal tract leading to vomiting, acidosis, bloody diarrhea, wheezing, laryngitis, shortness of breath, headache, and shock, along with circulatory system effects and death. Fluoride toothpastes contain warnings to get medical help or immediately contact Poison Control if toothpaste is swallowed.

Newsweek questioned the outdated scientific rationale for putting fluoride in drinking water in a 2015 summary of a Cochrane Collaboration review. Cochrane reviews are the gold standard of scientific rigor in assessing effectiveness of public health policies. What was the reviews take-home message? Fluoridation does not reduce cavities to a statistically significant degree in permanent teeth or baby teeth. A medical school dean stated that his prior pro-fluoridation viewpoint was completely reversed and he was amazed by the lack of evidence.

OWASA Board members dismiss the countless reports of fluorides neurotoxicity. A seminal 2014 article in Lancet Neurology (by brain development experts at Harvard and Mt. Sinai School of Medicine) unambiguously described fluoride as a human neurotoxicant that lowers childrens IQ and disrupts behavior. A 2015 article in Environmental Health that examined exposure to fluoridated water and subsequent attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (prevalence among U.S. children found significantly higher ADHD rates in states where a greater proportion of children drink fluoridated water. The authors comment on the developing brains particular sensitivity to the neurotoxic effects of fluoride and the window of vulnerability during prenatal and early postnatal development.

New Discovery Suggests First Settlers Arrived in North America 130,000 Years Ago! "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As time passes by, it becomes more and more difficult to find evidence of something that took place centuries and millennia ago. So most of the times, we have no other choice but to view the historical reality through the prism of conventional thinking. At the same time, with the increasing advances in technology, archaeologists obtain new, better tools for the research, which sometimes brings unexpected results and leads to thought-provoking discoveries.

Thus, recent archaeological research challenges the theory that the first settlers arrived in the Americas around 25,000 years ago.

24 years ago, construction workers unearthed a skeleton while building a new highway in San Diego, Southern California. Since then, archaeologists have been working at the site and it seems that their research has finally brought some exciting results. They uncovered limb bones and teeth from mastodon, a huge extinct species related to the elephant.

First Settlers Arrived in North America 130000 Years Ago site

In their paper, which was published in the scientific journal Nature, the researchers write that the bones they found date back to 130,000 years ago. And the most important part is that the mastodon bones could have been processed by humans. According to the authors of the study, this discovery suggests that the first humans set foot in North America 100,000 years earlier than previously thought.

It was unusual to say the least and suggested this was a not a typical paleontological site and we should consider the possibility that we had association of extinct megafauna with humans, or at least early human activity, paleontologist Thomas Demr told the Washington Post.

If you ask, the age of the bones was established using the method called uranium-series disequilibrium, which is proven to be accurate for calcium carbonate materials that are up to 500,000-year-ol...

Fresh Concerns Emerge over Energy Drinks Damage to the Heart "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Energy drinks have been linked to heart problems in a new study published April 26 in the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAMA).

Oh, but its not the first time, not by a long shot. A 2013 study showed that energy drinks put an additional strain on the heart, causing it to contract more rapidly than usual. Over time, this can weaken the heart and cause palpitations.

A November 2015 study revealed that consuming just 1 energy drink per day puts you at risk of heart attack and stroke because they cause harmful spikes in the fight or flight hormone noradrenaline, as well as blood pressure.

In March 2016, researchers warned that the sugary, uber-caffeinated beverages increase the risk of having an abnormal heart rhythm and can increase blood pressure, making the products especially dangerous for people who have preexisting heart conditions.

Its not just the caffeine that can cause the heart to go haywire, though. The vitamins, stimulants, and herbs in the drinks, combined with caffeine, super-charge your ticker in ways it cant handle.

Emily A. Fletcher, Pharm.D., study author and deputy pharmacy flight commander at David Grant U.S.A.F. Medical Center at Travis Air Force Base in California, says:

For the 1 in 3 Americans who already have hypertension, this increase in blood pressure from consuming energy drinks could pose a potentially serious risk. [2]

Regular Caffeine vs. Energy Drinks

Little is known about the safety of some of the other ingredients in energy drinks, so researchers decided to find out what kind of effect these components have on the heart.

As forests disappear, human-elephant conflict escalates in Nepal "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Farmers in the Terai region of Nepal face jumbo threats on a day-to-day basis, resulting in damage to crop yields, destruction of their homes, and, in some cases, even a death in the family. The source of this destruction comes from a persistent and increasingly problematic pest, though also one of the worlds most beloved, charismatic mammals: the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus). Human-elephant conflict is a significant issue for a number of Nepalese, according to a paper recently published in the Journal for Nature Conservation. Conducted in the agricultural region of Terai, the study aimed to determine the residents willingness to pay (WTP) to alleviate human-elephant conflict. In other words, residents were asked how much money they would agree to contribute to better address human-elephant conflict in their community. Our study has provided a new approach for funding to mitigate human-elephant conflict in the region by the Nepalese government, said Dinesh Neupane, a PhD candidate at Arkansas State University and co-author of the study. Forests and grasslands are disappearing at an ever-increasing rate to accommodate Nepals growing population. Land that was once critical habitat for Asian elephants, the Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris) and thousands of other species has now been converted to farmland. Though some forests remain intact and protected areas have been established, large mammals often leave their preferred habitats to search for food in human-dominated areas, sometimes leading to destruction and even human fatalities. According to Neupane, retaliatory killings of elephants occur at a rate of two

From Vice: Donald Trumps expected nominee for director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, Congressman Tom Marino, is a proponent of mandatory inpatient treatment for drug abuse. However, research shows that coerced addiction treatment is often ineffective and can even have demonstrable negative effects.

Of the studies that exist on compulsory treatment, the majority (77 percent) found either no clearly proven effect on drug use or crimeor that forced treatment actually made people worse by increasing their likelihood of arrest or relapse (22 percent).

Sickest Hardcore Venue in Town Also Open at 11 A.M. for Sunday Services "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

MUNCIE, Ind. For the second straight year, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Muncie is not only the sickest all-ages hardcore venue in the city, but also open at 11 a.m. for Sunday services, according to church board members.

The Church, as it has become known throughout local subcultures, has risen to prominence as the scenes premier venue. Many community members attribute The Churchs rise to their new management group, who is actively involved in the local hardcore scene.

Our church welcomes all people, regardless of race, gender, or nationality. Whatever you are, you have a place at our services, and no matter if youre old school, beatdown, indie rock, or even modern rudie, you have a place at our shows, said Max Grimsmo, the Unitarian Universalist minister and show promoter, backstage at last Fridays show. But that doesnt mean Ill just book anyone. If you cant really bring it, you can take your bush-league crap down to the College Avenue Methodist Church.

Many members of the hardcore community attribute the success of The Church to their straightforward business practices and fan-friendly floor plan.

Its kind of the perfect venue. You know you arent going to get hosed by some shady promoter. The Church takes 50% of the door, and a 10% tithing on all merch sales, said Conner Sumptner, a high school junior and merch kid for local punk band Tight Skinz. But its so worth it. The stage height is perfect for diving, the PA works great most of the time, and the lobby is spacious enough for me to set up a full merch table and my cassette distro.

While the hardcore scene has found The Church to be the perfect space, other members of the greater Muncie community note theyre not alone. Congregants of the Unitarian Universalist Church reportedly appreciate the same aspects of the space, albeit for different reasons.

The acoustics are fantastic here. Ive never heard a choir sound better! said Carol Gantler, a grandmother of five and retired school teacher. And this lobby is the perfect place to have a cup of tea and catch up with your friends.

What If Your Preparedness Plan Isnt As Sound As You Think "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


Consider this a coaching segment and some advice on how to follow a Thomas Hardy Far from the Madding Crowd mindset.  Look at the world situation right now.  North Korea is rattling the saber as the U.S. naval armada sails toward the area.  We just gave Syria a foretaste of what is to come with the Tomahawk strike.  Relations with Russia just hit a low point, and the President is not backing down on Syria and North Korea.  Chances are good that well be involved in a war very shortly.  The possibility also exists that it could become a world war.

What does that mean to you, the Reader?  It means that youre going to have to assess yourself and correctly determine whether youre prepared for the times to come.

Are You Appropriately Planning Your Preparations?

Part of that is to think outside of the box, to think differently in terms of planning and preparation.  Most everyone has the same type of mindset: Im going to acquire all kinds of supplies, practice hard, and when the time comes, Ill be as ready as I can be.

Did you ever stop and consider that everyone else has the same idea, to one degree or another?  Most people want to be spoon-fed everything, and the preparation is of the mindset that everything will be in place when disaster hits.  Most do not war game the situation realistically.  Everyone will have a rallying point of the closest park to hide.  The problem: everyone is thinking of that.  Everyone will take to the roads (Katrina was proof of that) if theres advance warning.

The Art of Doing the Opposite of the Majority

In preparedness, you must take the road less traveled by, to paraphrase Frost.  When the IHM (Incredible Human Mob) is running in one direction, the odds are good that you should not be in their midst.  The art of doing the opposite of the majority is one of the things that will keep you alive and intact.  The mob all runs to an area where there are limited supplies, such as food and water.  What do you think will happen next?  A singing of Lee Greenwoods Proud to Be and American with Bic lighters aflame?  No, theyll rip one another to shreds for the last bottles of water.

So, how do we compress thinking and acting differently from the majority into o...

Ascension is the Genetic Rehabilitation of the Original Human DNA "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Lisa Renee The war over consciousness is bubbling to the surface, with more pieces being exposed to the light of day for those who are willing to see.  This month we look at the over arching agendas to manipulate the environment, weather, the food supply, human DNA expression and higher consciousness, through Genetic Engineering.  When we understand the potential of the 12 stranded DNA design during the ascension process, it is no wonder the NAA have been attempting to destroy it in everyway possible.  This effort began to escalate after World War II with alien contact, and again in the 90s when more of the Indigo and Crystal children started arriving in larger numbers. As we connect the dots between the multiple avenues used to control and manipulate human consciousness, we can see why a full disclosure event is needed.  Until then it is up to each of us, to do our best to accurately assess the world of forces in our day-to-day lives, and to make informed and conscious decision about what we interact with.

The Controllers and the intelligence community have established an assortment of secret military programs that act in explicit cooperation to carry out the NAA objectives for bio-spiritual consciousness enslavement, through mind control and Genetic Engineering. These many covert operations are carried out against the public to gain access and control over human brain waves. Which intentionally shape brain cognition, thoughts and behavior, and to limit perception and intelligence quotient (IQ) in the masses, in order to harvest earth based genetics and continue to modify gene expression in humanity. In simpler terms, these hidden technologies are targeted to the public for the purpose of mind controlled gene expression. This is a type of Genetic Engineering that has been conducted through a variety of technological, medical and pharmacological experiments, hidden behind covert military backed operations that have been exploited by the Controllers since World War II. Many of these hidden military and bio-technology experiments such as Chemtrailing, Vaccinations and the production of GMO foods, are visibly seen in the outer world. Yet, many people are still not aware of the global enslavement agenda that includes controlling the genetic expression of the human population.

Genetic Engineering is also called genetic modification and is the direct manipulation of an organisms DNA using bio-technology and can potentially include a host of other methods, such as broadcasting ELF Signals to alter the brain waves. When most people think of genetic engineering, they believe it to be the process of manually adding new DNA to an organism. Most commonly, genetic engineering is understood as physically removin...

How to Help Other Women Rise to Your Level of Success and Absolutely No Higher "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

We here at Hard Style are strong feminists. We understand that your band is not just a performance of feminism but an actual expression of your very radical politics. Of course, you want to help other women in your scene rise to your level of success in the spirit of sisterhood.  In honor of your girl power, weve thought of some ways to help other women rise to your level of success and not even a hair further.

Get Your Girlfriends Gigs!

First, always recommend your best friends band for cool gigs, assuming your band is also on the bill and it wouldnt lead to her playing after your band. After all, if you recommended Lisa for the gig, she should not try to out shine you, that would be shady. You helped her, now she can help you by making sure you stay the center of attention at all times and reminding the crowd during her set to stay for your band.

Share Your Network!

Its a good idea to give other women in the scene your carefully organized list of press contacts and bookers. However, be honest with the bookers and do your best to let them know that that certain bands are sometimes late for gigs. Like Lisas band that time they played her moms funeral and then were five minutes late to their other show that night because they were feeling, things.

Related: Fun Date Night Ideas Youll Never Experience Because You Date Band Dudes

The Work Place Counts Too!

There are lots of ways you can help other women outside of the music scene. Why dont you get your friend a job at your work with flexible hours and great benefits? This will be really cool because she will be able to focus on her music more and go on tour without the stress of financial burden. But at the same time you dont want a cushy job to make her art suffer. The best music comes out of dark places. So for her benefit make sure the manager is on Lisas ass as often as possible.

All women are equal, strong, and powerful . When one woman shines, we all shine. But there are always ways to make sure you shine the brightest (much brighter than Lisa)....

My Awakening from the Matrix, Accepting the Unbearable Truth (Anunnaki, Reptilians & Archons) and Becoming the Change "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

By Julie Alexander and Alexander Light, HumansAreFree.com

How it All Started: Aliens & UFOs

It all started around October 2013 when I became interested in Ancient Aliens and then Alien Files Unsealed.

I watched these programs thinking what on Earth is going on? The feats supposedly accomplished in Ancient Aliens by human beings, years ago, well it didnt make sense, and we just arent strong enough now even with modern day equipment never mind then, so many unexplainable buildings, there had to be more to it.

I then started watching Alien Files Unsealed and it suddenly dawned on me that the people, whose stories were being covered in the program, were normal people; they didnt want notoriety, fame or fortune, they just wanted their stories to be heard and made sense of.


Something very strange had happened to them and they needed to make sense of it as best they could.

Of course, anyone trying to talk about this subject is instantly ridiculed and made to feel silly and stupid.

Have you ever wondered why? Why arent we all flabbergasted and inspired by such stories? Why arent we out there doing research ourselves trying to find out the truth?

The First 100 Days of Fascist Germany: A New Online Project from Emory University "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

From Emory University comes The First 100 Days of Fascist Germany, an attempt to document online what happened on each dayfrom January 30, 1933 through May 9, 1933when Hitler was named Reichskanzler of Germany.

As you can perhaps imagine, the motivation for the project isnt entirely divorced from current events. The grad students behind The First 100 Days explain:

During the highly contentious political climate in this country, the terms fascism and Nazi Germany have been tossed around quite freely by both sides of the political spectrum. As a response to this and in an effort to provide some clarity of what fascism in Nazi Germany actually looked like, we at the Emory University German Department initiated a research project that aims to document the first 100 days of National Socialism- from the day that Adolf Hitler was named Reichskanzler on January 30, 1933 until May 9, 1933.

They continue:

The general plan for our project is that our research team will work its way through the 100 days, investigating and documenting the events of each day and then posting the findings on a daily basis for public consumption.

As the daily calendar shows, Hitler didnt waste a lot of time. By Day 51, Dachauone of the first concentration campsopened and received its first prisoners, notes Emory News. By Day 60, all new stories critical of the government were censored. And, by Day 88, the press expelled from its ranks all Marxists and Jews. That was just the beginning.

Meanwhile, on Day 88 over here, Trumps initiatives (some relatively innocuous, some alarming) have met civil, judicial and political resistance, or collapsed under their own weight. The concern of January has given way to comedy in April:

Dont Get Cold Feet: When the Economy Tanks, the Value of Gold May Briefly Plummet "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

mined-gold

Youve probably heard the following advice a thousand times already: Precious metals are safe haven assets. When a financial system crumbles, everyone moves their money out of the stock market, or any other risky asset, and they buy gold. Since our financial system is burdened with so much debt and is teaming with bubbles, its collapse is all but inevitable. So you should buy gold now while its still relatively cheap.

Despite my tone, I assure you that what Ive said is still sound advice. However, theres a small detail about safe haven assets like gold that most people forget. Sometimes, when the economy takes a nosedive, it takes gold down with it. Take a look at what happened to gold during the last financial crisis.

10-year-gold

That shaded part represents our last recession. As you can see, when the recession started everything went according to plan. Investors fled their typical financial haunts, and bought gold. But it soon began to lose value. In August and September of 2008, the price of gold plummeted to less than what it was before the recession. This event coincided with the stock market crash that also occurred in August of 2008.

How Your Energy System And Imagination Are Connected "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Body Mind Soul Spirit

A Conversation with Sadhguru.

Sadhguru: There is a certain geometry to the physical existence and to the energy existence. Everything in the universe, from the atomic to the cosmic, works the way it does because of geometric perfection. One of the most fundamental and the most stable forms in geometry is a triangle. In the human energy system, there are two equilateral triangles an upward-pointing one below, and a downward-pointing one above. Normally, these two triangles meet just above the anahata. To work with your mind and imagination, it is important to adjust the alignment of the two triangles at least to some extent. The ideal alignment would be that the upward-pointing and the downward-pointing triangles intersect to such an extent that they form a perfect six-pointed star with six equilateral triangles on the outside.

With the necessary alignment, you will be able to exercise your imagination in such a way that you can manifest what you want outside of you. To enhance the power of your imagination, you need to lift the upward-pointing triangle, which in terms of the geometry of the body is the foundation, to such an extent that it includes the vishuddhi, which is the basis of your imagination. There is sadhana to move it up and hold it there, all the time. If you do not have such sadhana, a simple way to achieve this is not to eat for a period of time. Generally, when the stomach is empty, the upward-pointing triangle tends to rise by itself. Once you eat, it descends again.


The Importance of Keeping the Chakras Mobile

There are one hundred and fourteen chakras in the body. The seventy-two thousand nadis, or energy pathways in the system, have one hundred and fourteen significant junction points, where the nadis meet in substantial numbers and redistribute themselves. These points are generally known as chakras, which literally means wheel or circle, though they are actually triangles. We call them chakras because that suggests movement moving forward. Out of these hundred and fourteen, two are outside of the physical realm. For most human beings, these two are very feeble, unless they put in the necessary sadhana. Out of the remaining on...

The Most Effective Oil that Cures Anxiety, Cigarette Cravings and Arthritis "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Healthy Cures

Columbus set sail westward in a futile effort to find the fabled spice islands of Asia. One spice he sought in particular was Black Pepper. Cherished by antiquity to such an extent they even used this precious spice as currency, today Black Pepper is tragically overlooked (probably due to its presence on almost every restaurant table top in America). The truth is Black Pepper (Black Pepper Essential Oil in Particular) contains amazing beneficial properties you probably didnt know exist.

The benefits from Black Pepper essential oil are particular to how it is consumed. It can be ingested, applied topically or inhaled aromatically. Lets take a closer look at these three ways of consuming Black Pepper Essential oil and the benefits you can expect from each.

Black pepper essential oil has various remedial properties and the most important among them are expectorant, febrifuge, antioxidant, diuretic, anti-arthritic, circulatory, analgesic, antibacterial, stimulant, anthelmintic, antiseptic, diaphoretic, antispasmodic, laxative, aphrodisiac, anticatarrhal, rubefacient, anti-inflammatory and carminative.


Orally

When consumed Orally (try adding it to your BBQ or favorite steak sauce) Black Pepper Essential oil provides powerful antioxidants called Sesquiterpenes. These antioxidants help promote sweating and urination (two common ways your body uses to expel toxins). This prized spice from India is also great at promoting healthy digestion as it increases bile and other acidic juices in the stomach, which help break down and process food efficiently.

The ISS captures footage of MYSTERY objects above EarthScientists confused "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Ancient Code

ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet captured a series of strange moving objects above Earth while orbiting our planet above California aboard the International Space Station on April 17, 2017. The giveaway is the fact that the lights are not tumbling, which indicates they are actively controlled.

Did Pesquet just film UFOs flying over our planet?

The video filmed by Pesquet was initially intended to record an electric storm near the horizon, just above western US.

At 25 frames per second of video, the flashes in the atmosphere produced by the rays are perfectly appreciable from the orbital complex. The view is beyond fascinating.


However, moments later the video records the dizzying presence of two objects moving at high speed above the Earth. The ESA Space Debris Bureau later confirmed that they are consistent with intact objects, and were most likely satellites in operation.

However, scientists were unable to confirm which satellitesif the they were satellite at allwere captuerd in the video.

Secret Mummy Discovered in Peru "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Picture
In an undisclosed location in Peru L.A.Marzulli coincidentally discovered a secret in-tact mummy with an elongated skull.

L.A. Marzulli could only take photos of the mummy as the locals had a contract with a certain institution, according to the administrator.
Besides the elongated skull it seems there is much space between the vertebra and we are seeing five extraordinary long fingers/knuckles not including the thumb. Maybe from the angle of the hand, the missing thumb is behind the mummy or the being has six fingers?

The fact that an institution is involved may indicate that this mummy is more than just a mummified human being and they probably want to keep it hidden from the public, like Smithsonian, who has been gathering up skeletons and other ancient objects before.

Apparently, Peru was a hot spot for giants as well as these odd beings, like the mummy shown here.

The best news story about a guinea pig youll ever read "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

You may read a better news story about a guinea pig in this lifetime but I doubt it says @Alsboy over on Twitter.

Guinea pig harem says hello Sooty

A GUINEA pig called Sooty had a night to remember after escaping from his pen and tunnelling into a cage of 24 females.
He romanced each of them in turn and was yesterday the proud father of 43 offspring. Staff at Little Friends Farm in Pontypridd, South Wales, have now secured Sootys pen and begun looking for homes for the guinea pigs. Owner Carol Feehan, 42, said: Im sure a lot of men will be looking at Sooty with envy.

We knew that he had gone missing after wriggling through the bars of his cage. We looked for him everywhere but never thought of checking the pen where we keep 24 females. We did a head count and found 25 guinea pigs Sooty was fast asleep in the corner. He was absolutely shattered. We put him back in his cage and he slept for two days.

Mysterium To Build Blockchain-based VPN for Secure, Anonymous Internet Connection "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Mysterium To Build Blockchain-based VPN for Secure, Anonymous Internet Connection

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

27th April, Zug, Switzerland: Blockchain startup Mysterium Foundation has announced its token crowdsale scheduled for the 30th of May. Mysterium is building a decentralised Virtual Private Network (VPN) that anyone can use to connect securely and anonymously to the internet. The system is also designed so that users who share their spare bandwidth to the network will be able to earn digital tokens in reward. The Mysterium platform will operate via its native MYST token, available through the crowdsale.

Until now the public have had to trust their private data to large centralized VPN providers. Now Mysterium will offer an alternative decentralised peer-to-peer (P2P) network that aims to take back power from big corporations. Mysterium acts as a distributed marketplace for the give and take of VPN services and is backed by secure Ethereum blockchain technology.

Internet privacy is under attack. Last month the U.S. reversed a set of important consumer protection rights allowing Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to track customer activity and sell that data to the highest bidder. According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation customers will now be subject to new and invasive ways to track and deliver targeted ads to customers [1]. As a result the U.S. has seen a huge surge in demand for VPNs as people seek to restore their privacy. Most users are unaware that they are simply moving their private data from centralised ISPs into the hands of centralized VPN providers.

Mysterium offers a real alternative an open source, decentralised and encrypted VPN solution with levels of privacy unmatched by centralized providers.

Mysterium Network is specifically designed to combat this erosion of our priva...

This Cindy Kay Currier message I found really hit some of my Truth points, and rang a lot of resonance bells, and connected many what the hell is going on with this US thing dots.

In particular, she covered the Antiquities Act EO and education-related matters (no more Common Core), and others, and how these actions are, one step at a time, turning back responsibilities to individual states, and individual communities, rather than keeping them under the grand Federal (aka, corporation) umbrella. CKC said, We are seeing a move back to the people, and control of their own lives.

It also helped me to understand why President Trump has brought in so many former military to his cabinet, and those formerly from large banking institutions.

She also mentioned the famous David Wilcock/Drake interview of 2012, where mass arrests were coming and many of us (yes, I was one of them) assumed theyd be happening publicly and all at once (see this Kp blog list). But as it turns out, arrests ARE happening, but in a silent way. She pointed out that the word arrest really means stopping the progress of, rather than putting people in handcuffs. Th...

Exercises to do at home "IndyWatch Feed Health"

How to workout at home

Going to the gym isnt for everyone. The costs can be high, you may find it hard to get to a convenient location or you may feel self-conscious if youre new to exercise. Regular moderate exercise is vital for reducing cardiovascular health risks, managing your weight and fat content and preventing back and joint problems. The increase in muscle to fat ratio also helps your body burn more calories and boosts your metabolism. It is generally much harder to manage your weight long-term without exercise.

There are exercises that can be done at home to achieve all fitness goals including cardiovascular fitness, fat burning, strength, endurance, core strength and stability. They dont require any equipment because your bodyweight is more than enough resistance to achieve most fitness objectives. Because they are compound exercises (using many muscle groups simultaneously), you burn more calories per minute and a full-body workout takes far less time. They also better replicate the kinds of movements you do in everyday life, reducing the risk of injury.

Getting started

Stretching

Always begin exercise by warming up. Warming up means getting the muscles you are about to use ready for activity. Your warm up should work the muscles youre about to use,theres no point jogging as a warm up if youre embarking on upper body exercise, for example.

Perform exercises carefully and with control. Do not rush as this can cause injury and strain. As a general rule, you should allow two seconds from your starting position to end position and another two seconds to return to your starting postition.

If you have any medical conditions or injuries, please consult a doctor before embarking on any new exercise programme.

Exercises to do at home

Ensure youre performing the exercises below correnctly by practising them in front of a mirror and compare your position with the images. Maintain a strong core to protect your back by tensing the muscles in your stomach as hard as you can then releasing by half and then half again. Roll your shoulders up, back and down, with your feet hip width apart and your knees soft.

Leg exercises

SquatExercise 1: Squats with half-arm raises
An oldie but a goodie, especially when the form is correct. Squats work all major muscle groups in your legs and your lower back. Adding in a half-arm raise helps improve stability and further works other muscle groups. Aim to complete 2 3 sets of 10 repetitions and build up to 15 20 repetitions over time.

Exercise 2: Wall sitsWall sit
This is harder than squatting as the legs are working constantly and it is a very effective exercise for all the muscles in the leg. Go f...

Hidden Dangers of Mammograms Every Woman Should Know About "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Millions of women undergo them annually, but few are even remotely aware of just how many dangers they are exposing themselves to in the name of prevention, not the least of which are misdiagnosis, overdiagnosis and the promotion of breast cancer itself. 

A new study published in the Annals of Family Medicine titled, Long-term psychosocial consequences of false-positive screening mammography, brings to the forefront a major underreported harm of breast screening programs: the very real and lasting trauma associated with a false-positive diagnosis of breast cancer.[1]

The study found that women with false-positive diagnoses of breast cancer, even three years after being declared free of cancer, consistently reported greater negative psychosocial consequences compared with women who had normal findings in all 12 psychosocial outcomes.

The psychosocial and existential parameters adversely affected were:

  • Sense of dejection
  • Anxiety
  • Negative impact on behavior
  • Negative impact on sleep
  • Degree of breast self-examination
  • Negative impact on sexuality
  • Feeling of attractiveness
  • Ability to keep mind off things
  • Worries about breast cancer
  • Inner calm
  • Social network
  • Existential values

What is even more concerning is that [S]ix months after final diagnosis, women with false-positive findings reported changes in existential values and inner calmness as great as those reported by women with a diagnosis of breast cancer.

In other words, even after being cleared of cancer, the measurable adverse psychospiritual effects of the trauma of diagnosis were equivalent to actually having breast cancer.

Given that the cumulative probability of false-positive recall or biopsy recommendation after 10 years of screening mammography is at least 50%,[2] this is an issue that will affect the health of millions of women undergoing routine breast screening.

The Curse of False Diagnosis and Bone-Pointing

Also, we must be cognizant of the fact that these observed psychosocial and exis...

Help Me Change the Education System "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

My names Will Stanton and Ive dedicated my life to changing the education system. I have created a new education model, called the Six Dimension Model, which aims to empower children in every way imaginable and to help them become who they are. The six dimensions are Self-Discovery, Inquiry, Sustainability, Innovation, Communication, and Empathy. All six pillars are treated equally within this model and serve to provide a more holistic system than the current pyramidal structure of education.

Here is a break-down of each of the six dimensions:

Self-Discovery focuses on helping children become who they are, and aims to nurture each childs passions and talents so that they may reach their highest potential as creators.

Inquiry is about teaching children how to think instead of what to think, how to discern information critically, and how to conduct their own investigations to find the answers theyre looking for.

Sustainability is about reconnecting with the Earth, immersing our children in nature, teaching them real life skills, getting them to become strong and resilient people, and showing them how to look after their health and wellbeing.

Innovation is about encouraging students to think outside the box to come up with creative ideas and solutions, defying conventionality, and fostering collaboration instead of competition in the classroom.

Communication looks at childrens overall social development and literacy. It aims to teach them how to read and write effectively, how to cultivate healthy relationships, and how to manage their emotions in order to minimize conflict both internally and externally.

Empathy aims to show children the value of real human connection in their lives, by uniting students through a sense of community, encouraging acts of kindness, and adopting a holistic planetary philosophy.

You can see the full vision of the Six Dimension Model at:

www.sixdimensionmodel.org

Im currently 3/4 of the way through writing the curriculum for the Six Dimension Model, and now I need your help to get it finished. Im giving away a free ebook of my book, Education Revolution, to anyone who can find me an expert in any of the following fields who is willing to volunteer to help complete the Six Dimension Model curriculum:

Antminers May Contain Backdoor VulnerabilityOr Buggy Security Feature "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

There have been recent allegations that Bitmain can shut down all of its Antminer mining hardware remotely. This supposed backdoor vulnerability has been dubbed Antbleed, and can be viewed via lines of code on Github and Pastebin. The website antbleed.com was created apparently to explain the vulnerability to the public.

Also read: Theres a Big Difference Between Electronic Fiat and Cryptocurrency

According to the website, the process of shutting down the mining hardware is accomplished when Antminer firmware connects with the centralized service every 1 to 11 minutes. The Antbleed website clarified what happens when the miner connects with the central server,

Each check-in transmits the Antminer serial number, MAC address and IP address. Bitmain can use this check-in data to cross check against customer sales and delivery records making it personally identifiable. The remote service can then return false which will stop the miner from mining.

The Antbleed website authors claimed the vulnerability could allow for the mass shutdown of miners worldwide, contributing to a loss of about 70% of the hashing power. They mentioned this vulnerability could allow Bitmain or government officials to disrupt or target specific miners....

How to Grow Tasty Bell and Chili Peppers in Your Garden "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Bell peppers and chili peppers are common staples that add flavor and color to your meals. They're also easy to grow, even in small spaces.

The heat of peppers is measured in Scoville heat units. A green pepper scores a zero on the scale, jalapeo peppers earn around 2,500 to 4,000 and Mexican habaneros, 200,000 to 500,000 units.

There are many different types of peppers, from sweet to flaming hot, making more than one variety useful in a single dish, adding complexity to the flavors. Popular pepper varieties include bell, Chile, banana, Hungarian, cayenne, jalapeno, Serrano, habaeros and others.

Below, I'll summarize growing tips for bell peppers1,2,3 and hot chili peppers,4,5 both of which are useful additions to a well-stocked home garden. I personally grow red bell peppers, habaneros and Thai chili peppers and love them all.

Uses and Medicinal Value of Peppers

Sweet and mild-tasting bell peppers can be sauted with onions or diced into salads, soups and casseroles; stuffed, grilled, placed on sandwiches, or eaten raw for a fresh snack.

Green, red and yellow bell peppers all contain phenolic compounds, ascorbic acid, carotenoids and free radical scavenging activity.

Green peppers have the highest phenolic activity but lower carotenoid content than the red and yellow varieties. Red peppers have the highest ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and a higher level of free radical scavenging activity.

The active ingredient in hot chili peppers is capsaicin, which is what makes your mouth burn and gives the peppers their pungent odor. The smaller the pepper the hotter it tends to be.

The endorphin rush capsaicin triggers makes this compound an effective remedy for pain and other medical conditions.

Research also sugges...

What's so Great About Oregano? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

You may already know that oregano is the "secret" herb that takes tomato sauce to a new level of savory and can even put flavor in butter sauces and chicken dishes that have people begging you for your recipes.

Oregano is an ancient, perennial herb, being an integral cooking ingredient in what is now known as Eurasia for thousands of years. The entire Mediterranean is well acquainted with this food-enhancing spice, but it's probably no surprise that Greece and Italy are noted as the regions where it most likely originated.

Because it's related to mint, which is from the menthe family of plants, you may detect a similarly cool but distinctive essence when you crush a leaf from the oregano plant between your fingers. Oregano has many of the same therapeutic qualities as mint, and the scent may also remind you of thyme.

Strolling through a garden that includes oregano, you may not be overwhelmed by the scent and aroma nearly as much as when the herb is dried. Greek oregano, or Origanum heracleoticum, is the variety recommended for your culinary endeavors.

As an herb, it makes sense that oregano provides health benefits. You might be surprised how many there are, though, and that the powerful properties extend throughout your whole body. Organic farm Floral Encounters offers a succinct account of the traditional uses for oregano:

"The leaves and flowering stems have a strong antiseptic effect and a tincture of tea is used to treat colds, influenza, mild feverish illnesses, indigestion, stomach upsets and painful menstruation.

It is also a sedative and should not be taken in large doses although mild teas have a restful soothing effect and can help with sleep. A liniment using the herb is used to treat bronchitis, asthma, arthritis and muscular pain. The essential oil can be used to relieve toothache."1

But first, here's some good information about how to include this easy-to-grow, must-have herb in your own garden. As always, organic seeds or seedlings from a reputable source are preferred to ensure they're not tainted by harmful chemicals.

From Seeds or From Cuttings, Oregano Is Easy to Grow

Cooks all over the world happily report how easy it is to cultivate this herb in their gardens, patio containers...

Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) Seeks 401 Certification in WV "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Subject: Announcement on ACP 401 certification application

Friends,

An urgent matter, pipeline-related, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) has filed a State Water Certification Application to the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) as required by Section 401 of the nations Clean Water Act. The ACP will try to show that their construction will not impair water quality and quantity nor the wildlife, recreation, and potable water that depends upon high quality water. Many of us fear that the pipeline construction will significantly impair water quality.

The announcement has been in the Pocahontas Times newspaper Legal Advertisements for the past several weeks. Public comment period ends May 8, 2017 (postmarked). Comments may be made to WV Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water and Waste Management, 401 Certification Program, 601 57th Street SE, Charleston, West Virginia 25304.

Several groups and persons, including Eight Rivers Council, are making efforts to request a local public hearing in Pocahontas County. WVDEP is not required to hold public meetings, but can do so at their option. You may make a request for a public hearing but should do so by this Friday April 28, via email at dep.comments@wv.gov

For your inspiration, in May 2016 the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation refused a 401 certification for the proposed Constitution Pipeline, which effectively ended its construction. Would West Virginias DEP do the same? Let them know how precious our water is and how the threat of pipeline construction sedimentation and karst disturbance could sabotage our water.

Whiteclay Liquor Stores to Close Sunday; May be a Temporary Shut Down "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Longest Walk 5.2 protest alcohol sales to Pine Ridge Indian Reservation residents in Whiteclay, Nebraska

Published April 28, 2017

WHITECLAY, NEBRASKA Even though a district judge on Thursday overturned a decision by the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission last week to deny a renewal of the licenses of the Whiteclay beer stores, the retail outlets will close on Sunday night.

After the judge overturned the decision, the the Nebraska Attorney Generals Office filed an appeal of judges ruling, which served to supersede the decision by the judge until the Nebraska Court of Appeals can rule.

Whiteclay, a village with less than 10 residents, sells over four million cans of beer annually. The small village is across the state line from South Dakota into Nebraska. It is located two miles from Pine Ridge Village on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, which does not allow alcoholic beverage sales on its reservation.

On Wednesday, April 19, 2017, the Nebraska Liquor Commission voted to deny the renewals for the four retail stores in Whiteclay.

Tribal leaders have for several years tried to stop the flow of alcoholic beverages onto the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Earlier this month, the Longest Walk 5.2 protested outside one of the liquor stores in hopes to have alcohol sales banned there.

Interior Department Announces $32.6 Million in Historic Preservation Grants to States and Tribes "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published April 28, 2017

Offshore Drilling Funds Directed to Help Protect U.S. and Tribal Historic Places, Culture, & Traditions

WASHINGTON U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke with the National Park Service today announced the awarding of $26.9 million in historic preservation grants to every U.S. state, the District of Columbia, the U.S. territories, and partnering nations, in addition to $5.7 million in grants to more than 160 tribes for cultural and heritage preservation projects on their tribal lands.

Fees collected from drilling on the Outer Continental Shelf help fund important conservation tools like these grants, Secretary Zinke said. The Department of the Interior and the National Park Service is committed to preserving U.S. and tribal history and heritage. Through valuable partnerships we are able to assist communities and tribes in ensuring the diverse historic places, culture, and traditions that make our country unique are protected for future generations.

Administered by the National Park Service, these funds are a part of annual appropriations from the Historic Preservation Fund (HPF). Since its inception in 1977, the HPF has provided more than $1.2 billion in historic preservation grants to states, tribes, local governments, and nonprofit organizations. Funding is supported by Outer Continental Shelf oil lease revenues, not tax dollars, with intent to mitigate the loss of a non-renewable resource to benefit the preservation of other irreplaceable resources.

This years HPF grant funds were appropriated under the Continuing Resolution Act, 2017, enacted as Public Law 114-254. All funding to the states and District of Columbia requires a 40% non-federal match, which leverages state, local and private dollars to do even more with the federal HPF investment. The HPF grants fund preservation programs at state offices and ensure support of local preservation with a required 10% pass through to Certified Local Governments via competitive subgrants.

Tuning Into the Frequency of Cannabis "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Cannabis flower is a special one for many reasons. Not only for the relaxed, joyful, euphoric and creative sensations it brings, but for how it specifically expands our consciousness.

When the user (i.e. receiver) is tuned into the cannabis frequency, that is, tuned into the plant's intention aligned with our own, awareness often grows into areas of the unknown which instantly changes our vibration.

The reason cannabis does this so well is due to its alliance with Gaia and the human template. It's why THC, the primary psychoactive component in cannabis is so welcomed by the endocannabinoid system of the brain.

That system is innate to the cannabis plant. Its familiar and this instantly harmonizes the frequency within our DNA field and the pineal. This means that cannabis can interact in a multi-dimensional framework within the humans field and change its own consciousness in the process.

Macedonia parliament stormed by protesters in Skopje - BBC News "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Macedonia parliament stormed by protesters in Skopje - BBC News: A brawl broke out injuring at least 10 people, including the Social Democrat leader Zoran Zaev, who was left with blood pouring down his face.

The protesters, supporters of ex-Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski's VMRO party, are demanding new elections.

Politics in the former Yugoslav republic has been deadlocked since an inconclusive election in December.

But the crisis goes back further, to a phone-tapping scandal two years ago.

Mr Zaev has created a coalition with ethnic Albanian parties, but his attempts to form a government have been blocked by the president.

Macedonian nationalists have been protesting on the streets since Mr Zaev tried to form the coalition.

4 Buddhist Monks Habits That Are Hard to Adopt But Will Change Your Life Forever "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Ever wondered how Buddhist Monks live and what habits they adopt to make them so peaceful?

Ive been always been fascinated by this question so I did some research and this is what I found. Dont worry, none of these habits are out of the ordinary. We all can adopt them too!

Habit 1 Outer decluttering

Did you know that the Buddha was born a prince? Yep, he could of spent his life in a big, beautiful palace where everything is done for him.

But he didnt.

He abandoned everything when he realized the frustrating nature of materialism.

2300 years later, Buddhist monks do the same. They keep material possessions to a minimum and only hold what actually need to live their life. Usually this will all fit in a small backpack.

They completely declutter their life.

Habit 2 Inner decluttering: taking care of others

In many Buddhist circles, monks learn to do things not for themselves, but for the whole world.

When they meditate, its for the sake of everyone. They attempt to attain enlightenment to reach their full potential and help those in need.

When you can develop this kind of selfless attitude, you focus less on your personal problems. You get less emotional about small things and your mind becomes more calm.

This is whats called inner decluttering: making room for others and dumping selfish habits.

Habit 3 Meditating A LOT

One of the main reasons you become a monk is to have more time to meditate. Most monks wake up early and meditate for 1 to 3 hours and do the same at night. This kind of practice changes the brain. If youve read any articles on the benefits of meditation, then you know what I mean....

Intl Banking Whistleblower Reveals High Level Pedophilia And Child Sacrifices In Interview "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Ronald Bernard didnt always have a conscience. He says, I was training to become a psychopath and I failed. He credits himself with helping to crash the Italian economy and bankrupting companies with his skills, as well as owning controlling shares in over 299 of the worlds largest companies, but that is just the beginning of his story.

He admits that at one point in his life he would deal with drug-lords, and Satanists just as easily as any regular Joe that might be one of his clients as a high-level banking executive and business man. He says that laundering money for political and social upheaval as well as drug pushing, international arms sales, and even human trafficking was the norm for him.

Bernard didnt finally have what he calls a breaking point until he was asked to sacrifice children in Satanic rituals by some of the elite individuals who were above him in the Illuminati.

Having suffered a difficult childhood himself, and finding himself unable to participate in the unspeakable acts he was asked to perform, he finally started to refuse assignments in his banking job and decided to go public with what he knows about the banking industry.

In the following video he reveals that the banking elites are tied to every form of horror that we currently face in the world today the least of which is usury and fractional banking which makes us all slaves to an elite class of 1-percenters who worship Satan.

Bernard says this is not a metaphorical Satan which these people worship, but a real one. His testimony is difficult to hear, but imperative to listen to in a time when pedophilia and human trafficking is being exposed at every turn.

To wit, Aleister Crowley (who once proclaimed himself to be the Great Beast 666)  once joined a secret society called Ordo Templi Orientis who created a system of sex magick rituals designed to help practitioners open themselves up to communion with demons. Part of the ritual system includes worship of a being known as Baphomet, otherwise known as Lucifer. Sex by individuals such as Crowley is deemed one of the most powerful forces of supernatural, and magikal power in the Universe. He and his cohorts took Hindu and Tantric practices and bastardized them into an excuse to perform highly deviant sexual acts.

How it All Started: Aliens & UFOs

It all started around October 2013 when I became interested in Ancient Aliens and then Alien Files Unsealed.

I watched these programs thinking what on Earth is going on? The feats supposedly accomplished in Ancient Aliens by human beings, years ago, well it didnt make sense, and we just arent strong enough now even with modern day equipment never mind then, so many unexplainable buildings, there had to be more to it.

I then started watching Alien Files Unsealed and it suddenly dawned on me that the people, whose stories were being covered in the program, were normal people; they didnt want notoriety, fame or fortune, they just wanted their stories to be heard and made sense of.

Theres a flying car thats going to be for sale called the OctoCopter "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Kitty Hawk, a Silicon Valley start-up company funded by Google will offer flying cars by the end of the year. You dont need a special license to drive them, and they will be available for consumer use in non-congested areas. Tired of those long security check-points at the airport? The OctoCopter might be for you.

The prototype is already up and running, and though the flying car is meant for over-water operation now, Kitty Hawk hopes to expand its use over time. The company states that, The go-to-market Flyer will have a different design than the prototype Flyer that appears in our April 2017 photos and videos.

For now, it can hold an altitude of about 15 feet. It is essentially a one-person sized-drone or hover-craft. The Flyer operates in the FAR 103 Ultralight Category of US FAA regulations so it doesnt require registration or a pilots license and may be flown for recreational purposes.

There is already a wait list and you must deposit $2,000 grand to join it. The flyers price has not yet been disclosed. Im sure it wont be cheap, but it looks like our Jetson-like future just got a lot closer.

Man Forcibly Inserts Handgun Into Anus Because He Thinks It Is The Safest Place To Keep It "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

gun

DELUTH, Mississippi  

Dale Kyle, 40, was recently hospitalized after he says he put his 1887 Colt Peacemaker into his anus, thinking it was the safest place for it to be.

According to doctors, Kyle put the gun in his own ass because his house has been robbed over a dozen times in a matter of 5 years, and in several of those instances, his entire gun collection was taken.

Basically, the only place a gun is safe is when youre carrying it, said Kyle. But I sleep naked, and I dont want anyone sneaking up on me while Im in my birthday suit. So I figured the best thing would be to just slip it on up. I thought if I had it handy, I could push it out at a moments notice, just in case.

As Kyle found, though, the rectum is not designed for entry, and things can easily become lodged.

His doctor, Kristopher McKenna, says that this is not the first gun he has seen wedged into a middle-aged mans derrire.

Men in their 40s to 50s, they like to stick things in their ass, said Dr. McKenna. I dont know why, I never went through that phase myself. I think its a southern thing, and I was raised in New York. Either way, this isnt the first time Ive pulled something out of some dudes ass, and it no doubt wont be the last.

Putin Warns: The Situation In North Korea Has Seriously Deteriorated "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

putin-war2

While its easy to dismiss the rhetoric of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as the ravings of a madman, world leaders appear to hold a different view.

With President Trump having deployed a Naval strike fleet to South Korea, China mobilizing over a hundred thousand troops to the border and Russia following suit with a mobilization on their southern border with North Korea, it appears a conflict is imminent.

Whether that comes in the form of a de-escalation should North Korea eliminate their weapons program, or all out war in the form of ICBMs, Tomahawks and boots on the ground, a resolution to the problem will likely be seen in coming weeks and months.

And while we hope that cooler heads will prevail, it appears, evidenced by statements from the Trump Administration, as well as Russias President Vladimir Putin, that war may be the most likely scenario:

Russian President Vladimir Putin warned that the crisis over North Koreas nuclear program is deepening after the issue dominated talks with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Moscow.

He and Abe believe the situation on the Korean peninsula has seriously deteriorated, Putin said Thursday after the Kremlin meeting. We call on all states involved in the regions affairs to refrain from military rhetoric and seek peaceful, constructive dialogue.

Why You Shouldnt Sleep with Onions in Your Socks, But "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There is no scientific evidence proving that those foot pads sold on late night TV can remove toxins when worn overnight on the soles of your feet, nor is it true that placing an onion in your socks can purify your blood although they might help keep a romantic interlude at bay. Theres something miraculous onions can do, though, and you dont have to wear them to get the benefits.

Onions are one of the oldest known super foods.

Onions are one of the oldest known super foods.

There have been some intriguing blog posts saying that wearing a slice of onion in your socks overnight can clean your blood and kill germs, but why would you hope to absorb a tiny bit of the miraculous power of the onion through your feet when you can simply eat them and get 1000 times more of their advantages.

Onions and garlic (alliums) are two of the cheapest super foods out there, with over 500 species, but well concentrate on onions for now, just to debunk having to wear them in your socks.

Onion History

For centuries, onions have been incorporated into food dishes as a means of reducing inflammation and healing different ailments. They were discovered before we even knew how to write, or farm.

Researchers think they were first cultivated 5,000 years ago in West Pakistan and Iran, but were growing wild in parts of Asia for an even longer period.

The slaves that built the pyramids in Egypt were fed onions and garlic to keep them healthy. Why? They were incredibly cheap! But even King Ramses  Egyptian royalty  revered the onion. He was entombed with onions in his eye sockets.

There are over 500 varieties of alliums.

Uniteds Settlement With Dr. David Dao Was Reportedly Only $800 And Free Flight "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

united

CHICAGO, Illinois  

United Airlines, who stupidly took responsibility for the treatment of unruly jerk passenger Dr. David Dao, has reportedly reached a settlement with Dao, but the outcome is not what most people expected.

According to an anonymous source close to the negotiations, Dr. Dao received only the originally offered $800, and a free flight to anywhere in the continental United States.

David knew that he was at fault here, said the source. Yes, the airline has a stupid policy, but he knew he still mouthed off to cops, and didnt simply leave the plane like the other passengers that were asked to do so. He caused a scene, and was a total prick in the situation. He knew all that, so when United offered the $800 they had originally promised when bumping him, he jumped at the opportunity before they took it away completely.

The full details of the settlement are under wraps, but the source says that he is 100% positive of the details, but Dr. Dao was forced to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement.

SMEAR CAMPAIGN: Government Forces Are Filling A Box Outside My House With Paperwork Containing Sensitive Info About Me "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Obama-era deep state forces have been routinely filing a box outside my house with THREATENING NOTICES demanding MONEY.

No one believes me, but neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stops these globalist bastards from showing up almost every day at the same time and dropping off their threats.

Sometimes the messages (which often contain information about me, like my Social Security Number or home address) say I need to pay up, or they will take away my car.

Sometimes they say global corporate forces will cut off my internet no doubt in an attempt to silence Truth Bang, by the orders of Mark CUCKerberg and the rest of the leftist technocratic elite who use the FAKE NEWS label to shut down freedom-shouters like myself.

Occasionally, they even pretend to be from my family members, saying they are trying to get a hold of me and that my phone line doesnt work anymore (nice try, deep state but I pulled the cable spy wires out of my walls years ago).

RELATED ARTICLES:

They also keep telling me Ive pre-qualified for loans or credit cards even though I didnt sign up for anything, a clear attempt to get me in suffocating debt so they can blackmail me into supporting the NEW WORLD ORDER.

BREAKING: Trump Impeachment Proceedings Beginning May 1 "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Trump1

WASHINGTON, D.C.

The liberal left has been asking for his head on a stick, and its seeming like they might get it Donald Trumps impeachment proceedings officially begin on Monday, May 1st.

This is an amazing day, I cannot wait for his impeachment to happen, said Mary Lambert, a staunch Democrat. Trump is a disgrace, and him being impeached and kicked out of office is the best thing that can happen.

Lambert, who teaches History to middle-school children, was confused when told that impeachment doesnt mean being kicked out of office, but rather, is just another name for an indictment of an official who holds office.

What? No. When a President is impeached, it means they are kicked out. Thats why Nixon resigned he was going to be impeached, so he skipped out on it first, said Lambert.

That seems to be a common misconception among idiots, said political advisor Joel Murray. Impeachment doesnt mean anything. Impeachment is just being indicted; they show up in court, basically. They still have to be found guilty, but being impeached doesnt mean they will. Trump wont he hasnt done anything worth being removed from office. I dont understand why people are so stupid. These are adults. Dont they remember that Bill Clinton was impeached?

Despite the confusion about the definition of the term, Trumps impeachment is still set to begin in just a few days, with many thinking this could be the beginning of the end.

Sarah Jones Performs an Astonishing Chorus-of-Humanity Tribute to Jane Goodall "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

What makes us human makes us fellow creatures, creeping things, fauna of a fragile terrestrial biosphere, neither more nor less. All lives are consequential.


Sarah Jones Performs an Astonishing Chorus-of-Humanity Tribute to Jane Goodall

In 1957, young Jane Goodall landed in Africa and set out to turn her childhood dream into a reality. I am living in the Africa I have always longed for, always felt stirring in my blood, she wrote to her mother when she finally arrived in Nairobi on her twenty-third birthday.

In the groundbreaking work that ensued, Goodall overcame towering odds, facing dismissal and outright attack from the scientific establishment she was ridiculed for insisting that chimpanzees have complex consciousness and accused of being unscientific for giving the chimps she studied names. But like Rachel Carson a generation before her, she persisted and, through her persistence, transformed our understanding of the natural world and our place in it no scientist since Copernicus has done more to counter our anthropocentric delusions than Goodall. Her work paved the way for the paradigm-shifting Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness, which finally recognized half a century after Goodall began her work in Tanzania that non-human animals are also conscious beings.

Goodall was one of the scientists honored at The Universe in Verse, which I hosted at Brooklyns nonprofit cultural center Pioneer Works the celebration of science through poetry that also ga...

Victorian Marine Biologist Margaret Gattys Stunning Drawings of Seaweed

Although the Victorian botanist and photographer Anna Atkins became the first person to publish a book illustrated with photographic images and the first woman to take a photograph, she was one of very few women who managed to subvert and transcend the eras limiting gender roles in intellectual life and creative work. It was a time when women were formally excluded from science the great scientific institutions of the era didnt admit female members until pioneering German astronomer Caroline Herschel and Scottish mathematician Mary Somerville became the first women admitted into the prestigious Royal Astronomical Society in 1835. But astronomy has always led the way, in science and in society. Natural history lagged far behind. Londons Linnean Society the ivory tower of botany wouldnt even allow women to attend its meetings, much less admit them as members, which didnt happen until 1905. It was the same Linnean Society that barred beloved childrens book author Beatrix Potter from presenting a paper containing her little-known yet revolutionary contributions to mycology, which remained dormant for decades.

Public Access/Open Networks, installation view (all photos by Jason Whythe)

Before the internet, there was public access cable. Back in the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, viewers with a sense of adventure or perhaps a raging case of insomnia might see Laurie Anderson and Peter Gabriel dancing, the recently departed writer and Warholite Glenn OBrien interviewing Debbie Harry and John Michel Basquiat, or, to the delight of half the male population in my junior high, the Robin Byrd Show, where the former porn star broke free of the bonds of clothing. Public Access/Open Networks, on view at BRIC House, allows visitors to experience this unpredictable, experimental, and ultimately incredibly influential world.

The exhibit features work from a broad swath of artists who either began or defined their careers in public access, from pioneering video artist Nam June Paik to socially conscious collective Paper Tiger Television, which continues to broadcast events like the Standing Rock protests, to the chameleonic Alex Bag, whose satirical 2005 dating series Gladiadaters is not all that far off from The Bachelor.

How To Get Men On Board With Investing In Postpartum "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Often a mother is willing and ready to invest in a postpartum doula, but experiences what I call the "dad block". He doesnt get it yet.

Without putting too fine a point on it, the biggest difference between men and women is that YOU are the one having the baby. Its in your body, right now. Youve probably connected the dots much quicker than your partner and realised that having a baby is going to change your life. This means that YOU are the one planning, reading, shopping and preparing your heart out, whilst hes probably just acting as though its business as usual.

Maybe your man is one of those partners who will do anything to make sure you find peace and joy in motherhood. Awesome! This blog post is not for you.

But if your bloke still hasnt got his head around the whole your-life-is-about-to-turn-upside-down thing yet, hes unlikely to be ready to fork out $$$ in smoothing out the roller coaster ahead.

Dont panic, Ive created this guide to getting your man on board just for you.

Newsflash: becoming a father is completely different to becoming a mother.

The man in your life probably wont get it.

Dads experience the transition to parenthood differently from women, from the inside out. Nature is full of miracles, including this: hormones within a family work symbiotically. His hormones will react to childbirth differently to yours. Whilst your oxytocin levels go up straight away after childbirth, his often dont. Dads are naturally designed to step into the protector and provider role, keeping you and your baby safe. He needs to do this so you can fully and completely embrace baby brain and enjoy that gooey mushy haze of nurturing and nourishing your baby.

Where is the Outrage?  DPT Shots Associated with a 10-Fold Higher Mortality!

by Dr. Brownsteins
Holistic Medicine

A 2017 study in Africa compared a DTP/OPV (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, oral polio) vaccinated group of children to an unvaccinated group.  The authors found there was a 10-fold increase risk of death in the vaccinated group that received only the DPT shot, as compared to the unvaccinated group.  If the children also received the OPV vaccine, there was a 5-fold higher death rate.  All-cause infant mortality after 3 months of age increased by 112% after the introduction of these vaccines.

Folks, I have been asking the Centers for Disease Control to do a vaccinated versus unvaccinated study in the U.S. for many years.  That study would answer the question whether vaccines are safe or not.  If unvaccinated children are as sick as vaccinated children it would rule out vaccines as causing the epidemic of illnesses our children are suffering including asthma, cancer, autoimmune diseases and autism.  But, the CDC refuses to do a study like this.

Why would the CDC refuse to do a vaccinated versus unvaccinated study?  After seeing what happened to the poor children in Africa, the CDC, which owns vaccine patents and receives hundreds of millions of dollars in vaccine sales, cant risk a negative outcome study.

President Trump campaigned on draining the swamp.  The stench from the CDC is right there for all to smell.  The CDC epitomizes the swamp that President Trump spoke about.

Where is the outrage amongst the Powers-That-Be about this study?  Where are the calls to investigate this matter further?  Why do our children, who are the most vaccinated on the face of the earth, suffer more death, chronic illnesses, and autoimmune disorders when compared to any other Western children?

Nigella sativa oil and thymoquinone have protective effects against toxicity induced by the anticancer drug cyclophosphamide. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Br J Biomed Sci. 2010 ;67(1):20-8. PMID: 20373678 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of Nigella sativa oil and thymoquinone against toxicity induced by the anticancer drug cyclophosphamide. Abstract:  Constituents of the Nigella sativa seed are reported to possess potent antioxidant effects. Treatment with anticancer drugs such as cyclophosphamide (CTX) is associated with significant toxicity due to over-production of reactive oxygen species, resulting in increased levels of oxidative stress. The aim of this study is to test whether or not N. sativa L oil (NSO) or its active ingredient, thymoquinone (TQ), can reduce CTX-induced toxicity. Male albino rats were treated with intraperitoneal administration of phosphate buffered saline (PBS) or 200 mg/Kg CTX followed by intragastric administration of NSO or TQ on alternate days for 12 days. Administration of NSO and TQ was initiated 6 h before or after CTX injection. Twenty-four hours after the last NSO and TQ treatment, blood and liver were harvested to analyse toxicity-related parameters. Treatment with CTX induced significant toxicity as shown by decrease in haemoglobin concentration and increases in blood sugar levels, activities of liver enzymes, bilirubin, urea, creatinine, lipids (triglyceride, cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol) and lipid peroxidation in the liver. Treatment with NSO or TQ induced significant reduction in overall toxicity. The antitoxic effects of NSO and TQ were associated with induction of antioxidant mechanisms. These results suggest that administration of NSO or TQ can lower CTX-induced toxicity as shown by an up-regulation of antioxidant mechanisms, indicating a potential clinical application for these agents to minimise the toxic effects of treatment with anticancer drugs.

Both propolis and thymoquinone diminished the risk of atherosclerosis via antioxidant mechanisms. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Arch Pharm Res. 2010 Apr ;33(4):637-43. Epub 2010 Apr 27. PMID: 20422375 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of propolis and thymoquinone on development of atherosclerosis in cholesterol-fed rabbits. Abstract:  Hypercholesterolemia, cholesterol-enriched diet and oxidative stress have been shown to increase serum total cholesterol (TC) and low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) levels resulting in development of atherosclerosis. Antioxidants play an important role in inhibiting and scavenging free radicals, thus providing protection to humans against infectious and degenerative diseases. The present study was undertaken to examine the possible protective effects of propolis (a resinous hive product collected by honeybees from various plant sources) and thymoquinone (TQ, active constituent of Nigella. Sativa seeds oil) on serum lipid levels and early atherosclerotic lesions in hypercholestrolemic rabbits. New Zealand rabbits were fed on either standard chow or atherogenic diet during four weeks and concomitantly received either propolis or TQ. At the end of experiment period, serum samples were collected to determine lipid profile, kidney functions and antioxidant status. Tissues from aorta, pulmonary artery and kidney were taken for histopathological examination. The cholesterol-enriched diet induced a significant increase in serum TC, triglycerides, LDL-C, thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances concentrations and a significant decrease in high density lipoprotein-cholesterol and in reduced glutathione levels compared to control group. Administration of propolis or TQ with cholesterol-enriched diet significantly (p

Thymoquinone has potential for the development of novel therapies against pancreatic cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Cancer Ther. 2010 May ;9(5):1419-31. Epub 2010 Apr 27. PMID: 20423995 Abstract Title:  Effects of thymoquinone in the expression of mucin 4 in pancreatic cancer cells: implications for the development of novel cancer therapies. Abstract:  Pancreatic cancer is one of the most lethal cancers in the world, as it continues to be resistant to any therapeutic approaches. The high molecular weight glycoprotein mucin 4 (MUC4) is aberrantly expressed in pancreatic cancer and contributes to the regulation of differentiation, proliferation, metastasis, and the chemoresistance of pancreatic cancer cells. The absence of its expression in the normal pancreatic ductal cells makes MUC4 a promising target for novel cancer therapeutics. Natural products have been widely investigated as potential candidates in cancer therapies, and thymoquinone (TQ), extracted from the seeds of Nigella sativa, has shown excellent antineoplastic properties in some systems. In the present study, we evaluated the effect of TQ on pancreatic cancer cells and specifically investigated its effect on MUC4 expression. The MUC4-expressing pancreatic cancer cells FG/COLO357 and CD18/HPAF were incubated with TQ, and in vitro functional assays were done. The results obtained indicate that treatment with TQ downregulated MUC4 expression through the proteasomal pathway and induced apoptosis in pancreatic cancer cells by the activation of c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways. In agreement with previous studies, the decrease in MUC4 expression correlated with an increase in apoptosis, decreased motility, and decreased migration of pancreatic cancer cells. MUC4 transient silencing studies showed that c-Jun NH(2)-terminal kinase and p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase pathways are activated in pancreatic cancer cells, indicating that the activation of these pathways by TQ is directly related to the MUC4 downregulation induced by the drug. Overall, TQ has potential for the development of novel therapies against pancreatic cancer.

Yves Kleins Art: Into the Void "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

41896F2QW8L._On the 28th of April 1928, the early postmodernist Yves Klein was born in Nice, France, to an Impressionist painter father and an Art Informel artist mother.  From a young age, Klein was fascinated with space. Allegedly, at the age of nineteen, him and his friends lay on a beach in the south of France, and each boy picked an element of the world to call his own: Arman chose the earth, Claude chose words, while Yves chose the ether surrounding the planet, which he then signed with a possessive gesture: With this famous symbolic gesture of signing the sky, Klein had foreseen, as in a reverie, the thrust of his art from that time onwardsa quest to reach the far side of the infinite. (Hannah Weitemeier, Yves Klein, 19281962).

A black-belt yodan master in Judo, Klein was deeply influenced by Eastern spirituality; his work revolved around a Zen-influenced concept he came to describe as le Vide (the Void), a nirvana-like state untouched by worldly influences; a neutral zone in which we are...

The fixed oil extracted from Nigella sativa seeds has an in vitro antisickling activity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Singapore Med J. 2010 Mar ;51(3):230-4. PMID: 20428745 Abstract Title:  The effect of fixed oil and water extracts of Nigella sativa on sickle cells: an in vitro study. Abstract:  INTRODUCTION: Various drugs have been investigated in the treatment of sickle cell disease (SCD), such as hydroxyurea, piracetam and calcium antagonists. Most of these drugs are potentially toxic and are not suitable for long-term therapy. Recently, Nigella sativa (NS) has been reported to have calcium antagonist and antioxidant activities, both of which play a role in the management of the disease. This study aimed to investigate the in vitro antisickling effect of extracts from NS.METHODS: Thirty-two patients with SCD, aged 7-47 years old, were recruited for the study. A total of 3 ml of venous blood was collected from each patient and divided into six tubes with heparin. The blood was mixed with 0.5 ml of either 0.1 percent, 0.05 percent or 0.01 percent v/v of the oil extract of NS. A slide was prepared by spreading a drop of treated blood, covered with a cover slide to ensure the complete deoxygenation condition. The separation of irreversibly sickled cells (ISCs) was performed on eight patients by a density gradient (Percoll-Renografin) centrifugation method.RESULTS: The 0.1 percent v/v concentration of the oil extract of NS resulted in an approximately 80 percent reduction in the formation of sickle cells. The 0.05 percent v/v concentration of NS produced an intermediate effect, while the 0.01 percent v/v concentration had no effect on the formation of sickle cells. The 0.1 percent v/v concentration of the fixed oil of NS led to a considerable reduction in the formation of ISCs.CONCLUSION: The fixed oil extracted from NS seeds has an in vitro antisickling activity.

A studie on molecular mechanisms of growth inhibitory effects of thymoquinone against prostate cancer cells "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Biol Med (Maywood). 2010 Jun ;235(6):751-60. PMID: 20511679 Abstract Title:  Studies on molecular mechanisms of growth inhibitory effects of thymoquinone against prostate cancer cells: role of reactive oxygen species. Abstract:  Thymoquinone (TQ), an active ingredient of black seed oil (Nigella Sativa), has been shown to possess antineoplastic activity against a variety of experimental tumors. However, the precise mechanism of action of TQ is not known. We investigated the mechanism of action of TQ in androgen receptor (AR)-independent (C4-2B) and AR nave (PC-3) prostate cancer cells, as models of aggressive prostate cancers. Exposure (24-48 h) to TQ (25-150 micromol/L) inhibited the growth of both C4-2B and PC-3 cells, with IC(50) values of approximately 50 and 80 micromol/L, respectively. Within one hour, TQ increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels (3-fold) and decreased glutathione (GSH) levels (60%) in both cell types. Pretreatment with N-acetylcysteine (NAC) inhibited both TQ-induced ROS generation and growth inhibition. TQ did not increase the activity of caspases and the caspase inhibitor, z-VAD-FMK did not decrease TQ-inducedapoptosis. Furthermore, although TQ treatment resulted in the activation of Jun kinase (JNK), pretreatment with the JNK inhibitor, SP600125, did not protect cells from TQ. However, TQ significantly up-regulated the expressions of growth arrest and DNA damage inducible gene (GADD45alpha) and apoptosis-inducing factor-1 and down-regulated the expressions of several Bc12-related proteins, such as BAG-1, Bcl2, Bcl2A1, Bcl2L1 and BID. In C4-2B cells, TQ dose dependently inhibited both total and nuclear AR levels (4-5 fold) and AR-directed transcriptional activity (10-12 fold). Interestingly, thissuppressive effect on AR was not prevented by NAC, which clearly suggested that TQ-induced cytotoxicity is not due to changes in AR regulation. These data suggest that TQ-induced cell death is primarily due to increased ROS generation and decreased GSH levels, and is independent of AR activity.

Nigella sativa oil appears to have a therapeutic potential in opioid tolerance and dependence. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Neurochem Res. 2010 Oct ;35(10):1557-65. Epub 2010 Jun 15. PMID: 20552271 Abstract Title:  Blockade of nitric oxide overproduction and oxidative stress by Nigella sativa oil attenuates morphine-induced tolerance and dependence in mice. Abstract:  The effects of Nigella sativa oil on morphine-induced tolerance and dependence in mice and possible mechanism(s) of these effects were investigated, for the first time, in this study. Repeated administration of Nigella sativa oil (4 ml/kg, p.o.) along with morphine (5 mg/kg, s.c.) attenuated the development of tolerance, as measured by the hot plate test, and dependence, as assessed by naloxone (5 mg/kg, i.p.)-precipitated withdrawal manifestations. Concomitantly, nitric oxide overproduction and increase in brain malondialdehyde level induced by repeated administration of morphine to mice or by administration of naloxone to morphine-dependent mice were inhibited by co-administration of the oil. Also, the decrease in brain intracellular reduced glutathione level and glutathione peroxidase activity induced by both treatments were inhibited by co-administration of the oil. The increase in brain glutamate level induced by both treatments was not inhibited by concurrent administration of the oil. The inhibitory effect of the oil on morphine-induced tolerance and dependence and on naloxone-induced biochemical alterations in morphine-dependent mice was enhanced by concurrent i.p. administration of the NMDA receptor antagonist, dizocilpine (0.25 mg/kg). Similarly, concurrent i.p. administration of the NO synthase inhibitors; L-N (G)-nitroarginine methyl ester (10 mg/kg), aminoguanidine (20 mg/kg) and 7-nitroindazole (25 mg/kg) or the antioxidant, N-acetylcysteine (50 mg/kg) enhanced this inhibitory effect of the oil. On the other hand, this effect was antagonized by concurrent i.p. administration of the nitric oxide precursor, L-arginine (300 mg/kg). These results provide evidence that Nigella sativa oil, through inhibition of morphine-induced NO overproduction and oxidative stress, appears to have a therapeutic potential in opioid tolerance and dependence.

Thymoquinone is a booster for the anti-cancer effect of doxorubicin in certain cancer cell lines. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cancer Chemother Pharmacol. 2011 Apr ;67(4):867-74. Epub 2010 Jun 26. PMID: 20582416 Abstract Title:  Combinatorial effects of thymoquinone on the anti-cancer activity of doxorubicin. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Doxorubicin is a mainstay of cancer chemotherapy despite its clinical limitations that arise from its cardiotoxicity and the high incidence of multi-drug resistance. Recent studies revealed a protective effect of thymoquinone, a non-toxic constituent of the essential oil of Nigella sativa, against doxorubicin-induced cardiotoxicity. We now investigated the influence of thymoquinone on various other effects exerted by doxorubicin in human cancer cells.METHODS: Doxorubicin, thymoquinone and equimolar mixtures of both were tested for cytotoxicity on human cells of HL-60 leukaemia, 518A2 melanoma, HT-29 colon, KB-V1 cervix, and MCF-7 breast carcinomas as well as multi-drug-resistant variants thereof and on non-malignant human fibroblasts (HF). Apoptosis induction was analysed via DNA fragmentation, activity studies of the caspases-3, -8 and -9, determination of changes in the mitochondrial membrane potential and in the ratio of the mRNA expressions of pro- and anti-apoptotic proteins bax and bcl-2. The generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) was assessed by the NBT assay.RESULTS: Thymoquinone improved the anti-cancer properties of doxorubicin in a cell line-specific manner. We found a significant rise of the growth inhibition by doxorubicin in HL-60 and multi-drug-resistant MCF-7/TOPO cells when thymoquinone had been added. The mode of action of both drugs and of their mixture was mainly apoptotic. In HL-60 cells, the drug mixture caused an additional concentration maximum of effector caspase-3 not observed for either of the pure drugs. The impact of the drug mixture on the mitochondria of HL-60 cells was also greater than those of the individual quinones alone. In addition, the drug mixture led to a higher concentration of reactive oxygen species in HL-60 cells.CONCLUSIONS: In summary, thymoquinone is a booster for the anti-cancer effect of doxorubicin in certain cancer cell lines. Distinct improvements on efficacy, selectivity, and even breaches of multi-drug resistance were observed for equimolar mixtures of doxorubicin and thymoquinone.

Jesus promises two new pancake days "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Jewish sin annuller and son of the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Jesus, has offered to launch two new pancake days as a gesture of goodwill to supporters.

The tradition developed from a Christian feast day enjoyed before the Lent fasting period, where the devout would confess their sins and abstain from meals as penance. The new days would fall in July and September, and would be open to both churchgoers and the non-religious. Pancake festivities could involve either sweet or savoury servings, there would be no restrictions on the choice or number of toppings, and pancakes may be tossed, either privately or in a race, as on traditional Shrovetides.

Christ told us, I believe the hardworking people of Britain, many of whom have demanding roles in the public sector, would appreciate more opportunities to enjoy these delicious Shrove treats with their families. Ill also be extending the offer to Catholics to enjoy pancake desserts as an alternative to me biscuits in communion ceremonies.

The announcement has been broadly welcomed by worshippers and gastronomes, though some have suggested the new policy might be more aimed at securing prayers in the face of completion from the Prophet Muhammad, who offers as many as 16 holy days under Islams lunar calendar.

When asked about whether he thought the new holidays would be a celebration of national cultural traditions, Christ told us, No, it really is just about the pancakes, adding, Who doesnt enjoy a pancake? I know I do. No? Have it your way, Im easy. Also, gay sex go ahead.

Thymoquinone and cisplatin appear to be an active therapeutic combination in lung cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Exp Clin Cancer Res. 2010 Jul 1 ;29:87. Epub 2010 Jul 1. PMID: 20594324 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone and cisplatin as a therapeutic combination in lung cancer: In vitro and in vivo. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Thymoquinone (TQ) is a compound extracted from Black Caraway seeds of Nigella Sativa and is active against various cancers. Cisplatin (CDDP) is the most active chemotherapeutic agent in Lung Cancer. Here we report activity of TQ against non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and small cell lung cancer (SCLC) cell lines alone and in combination with Cisplatin (CDDP).METHODS: For proliferation MTT assay, cell viability trypan blue assay and for apoptosis Annexin-V FITC assay were used in NCI-H460 and NCI-H146 cell lines. Inhibition of invasion by TQ was assessed using Matrigel assay and its affect on release of various cytokines was determined using RayBio Human Cytokine detection kit. Mouse xenograft model using NCI-H460 was used to determine in vivo activity of TQ and CDDP. Inhibition of LPS induced NF-kappaB expression by TQ was determined using transgenic mice expressing a luciferase reporter.RESULTS: TQ was able to inhibit cell proliferation, reduce cell viability and induce apoptosis. TQ at 100 microM and CDDP at 5 muM inhibited cell proliferation by nearly 90% and the combination showed synergism. TQ was able to induced apoptosis in both NCI-H460 and NCI-H146 cell lines. TQ also appears to affect the extracellular environment inhibiting invasion and reducing the production of two cytokines ENA-78 and Gro-alpha which are involved in neo-angiogenesis. Using a mouse xenograft model we were able to demonstrate that combination of TQ and CDDP was well tolerated and significantly reduced tumor volume and tumor weight without additional toxicity to the mice. In the combination arms (TQ5 mg/kg/Cis 2.5 mg/kg) tumor volume was reduced by 59% and (TQ20 mg/kg/Cis 2.5 mg/kg) by 79% as compared to control which is consistent with in vitro data. TQ down regulated NF-kappaB expression which may explain its various cellular activities and this activity may prove useful in overcoming CDDP resistance from over expression of NF-kappaB.CONCLUSIONS: Thus TQ and CDDP appear to be an active therapeutic combination in lung cancer.

Study finds DTP vaccine increases mortality in young infants 5 to 10 fold compared to unvaccinated infants "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

For many years, public health advocates have vainly urged the CDC and WHO to conduct studies comparing vaccinated vs. unvaccinated populations to measure overall health outcomes.  Now a team of Scandinavian scientists has conducted such a study and the results are alarming.  That study, funded in part by the Danish government and lead by Dr. Soren Wengel Mogensen, was published in January in EBioMedicine.  Mogensen and his team of scientists found that African children inoculated with the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine, during the early 1980s had a 5-10 times greater mortality than their unvaccinated peers.

The data suggest that, while the vaccine protects against infection from those three bacteria, it makes children more susceptible to dying from other causes. 

The scientists term the study a natural experiment since a birthday-based vaccination system employed for the Bandim Health Project (BHP) in Guinea Bissau, West Africa had the effect of creating a vaccinated cohort and a similarly situated unvaccinated control group.  In the time period covered by this study, Guinea-Bissau had 50% child mortality rates for children up to age 5.  Starting in 1978, BHP health care workers contacted pregnant mothers and encouraged them to visit infant weighing sessions provided by a BHP team every three months after their childs birth.  Beginning in 1981, BHP offered vaccinations at the weighing sessions.  Since the DPT vaccine and OPV (oral polio) immunizations were offered only to children who were at least three months of age at the weighing sessions, the childrens random birthdays allowed for analysis of deaths between 3 and 5 months of age depending on vaccination status.  So, for example, a child born on January 1st and weighed on April 1st would be vaccinated, but a child born on February 1st would not be vaccinated until their following visit at age 5 months on July 1st.

In the primary analysis, DTP-vaccinated infants experienced mortalities five times greater than DTP-unvaccinated infants....

Nigella sativa seed extracts regulated the expression of pro and anti-apoptotic genes. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cancer Cell Int. 2009 Nov 27 ;9:29. Epub 2009 Nov 27. PMID: 19943925 Abstract Title:  Induction of apoptosis in HeLa cells by chloroform fraction of seed extracts of Nigella sativa. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Cancer remains one of the most dreaded diseases causing an astonishingly high death rate, second only to cardiac arrest. The fact that conventional and newly emerging treatment procedures like chemotherapy, catalytic therapy, photodynamic therapy and radiotherapy have not succeeded in reverting the outcome of the disease to any drastic extent, has made researchers investigate alternative treatment options. The extensive repertoire of traditional medicinal knowledge systems from various parts of the world are being re-investigated for their healing properties. This study progresses in the direction of identifying component(s) from Nigella sativa with anti cancer activity. In the present study we investigated the efficacy of Organic extracts of Nigella sativa seed powder for its clonogenic inhibition and induction of apoptosis in HeLa cancer cell.RESULTS: Methanolic, n-Hexane and chloroform extracts of Nigella sativa seedz effectively killed HeLa cells. The IC50 values of methanolic, n-hexane, and chloroform extracts of Nigella sativa were 2.28 microg/ml, 2.20 microg/ml and 0.41 ng/ml, respectively. All three extracts induced apoptosis in HeLa cells. Apoptosis was confirmed by DNA fragmentation, western blot and terminal transferase-mediated dUTP-digoxigenin-end labeling (TUNEL) assay.CONCLUSION: Western Blot and TUNEL results suggested that Nigella sativa seed extracts regulated the expression of pro- and anti- apoptotic genes, indicating its possible development as a potential therapeutic agent for cervical cancer upon further investigation.

Its Almost Singlet Weather Says Hard Nut Who Walked Around All Summer Without A Shirt "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The arrival of the first chilly morning of the year has prompted that hard bastard who hasnt worn a shirt since September to consider opening up his wardrobe and dusting off a singlet or two.

Its time to put away my summer look of a bare chest and a pair of jeans and face the harsh reality that I may need to get my trusty singo out of storage, said Ingleburn hard man Mitch Bullbar. Its not that Im afraid of the cold. If you print that I may need to bash you up.

The results of the present study suggest that thymoquinone induced relaxation of the precontracted pulmonary artery. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Ethnopharmacol. 2010 Feb 3 ;127(2):210-4. Epub 2009 Dec 2. PMID: 19961917 Abstract Title:  Thymoquinone-induced relaxation of isolated rat pulmonary artery. Abstract:  AIM OF THE STUDY: The effect of thymoquinone (TQ), the main constituent of the volatile oil of black seed (Nigella sativa L. family Ranunculaceae), on the isolated rat pulmonary arterial rings was investigated.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Isolated rat pulmonary arterial rings were precontracted with phenylephrine and concentration-response curves to TQ were constructed. The effects of different receptors antagonists or enzyme inhibitors were examined.RESULTS: TQ caused a concentration-dependent decrease in the tension of the pulmonary arterial rings precontracted by phenylephrine. The effects of TQ were not influenced by pretreatment of the rings with propranolol (a non-selective beta-blocker), atropine (a non-selective blocker for muscarinic receptors), theophylline (an adenosine receptor antagonist), indomethacin (a cyclooxygenase inhibitor), L-NAME (a NO synthase inhibitor), methylene blue (an inhibitor of soluble guanylyl cyclase) and nifedipine (a Ca(2+) channel blocker). The effects of TQ were significantly potentiated by bosentan (an ET(A)/ET(B) receptor antagonist). The effects of TQ were slightly abolished by pretreatment of the rings with glibenclamide (a non-selective blocker of ATP-sensitive K+ channels). TQ totally abolished the pressor effects of serotonin and phenylephrine on the isolated rat pulmonary arterial rings.CONCLUSION: The results of the present study suggest that TQ-induced relaxation of the precontracted pulmonary artery is probably mediated, at least in part, by activation of ATP-sensitive potassium channels and possibly by non-competitive blocking of serotonin, alpha1 and endothelin receptors.

A thymoquinone-rich fraction extracted from Nigella sativa effectively improved the plasma and liver antioxidant capacity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Free Radic Biol Med. 2010 Mar 1 ;48(5):664-72. Epub 2009 Dec 11. PMID: 20005291 Abstract Title:  Nigella sativa thymoquinone-rich fraction greatly improves plasma antioxidant capacity and expression of antioxidant genes in hypercholesterolemic rats. Abstract:  The antioxidant activities of the thymoquinone-rich fraction (TQRF) extracted from Nigella sativa and its bioactive compound, thymoquinone (TQ), in rats with induced hypercholesterolemia were investigated. Rats were fed a semipurified diet supplemented with 1% (w/w) cholesterol and were treated with TQRF and TQ at dosages ranging from 0.5 to 1.5 g/kg and 20 to 100 mg/kg body wt, respectively, for 8 weeks. The hydroxyl radical (OH(.))-scavenging activity of plasma samples collected from experimental rats was measured by electron spin resonance. The GenomeLab Genetic Analysis System was used to study the molecular mechanism that mediates the antioxidative properties of TQRF and TQ. Plasma total cholesterol and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol levels were significantly decreased in the TQRF- and TQ-treated rats compared to untreated rats. Feeding rats a 1% cholesterol diet for 8 weeks resulted in a significant decrease in plasma antioxidant capacity, as measured by the capacity to scavenge hydroxyl radicals. However, rats treated with TQRF and TQ at various doses showed significant inhibitory activity toward the formation of OH(.) compared to untreated rats. Upon examination of liver RNA expression levels, treatment with TQRF and TQ caused the up-regulation of the superoxide dismutase 1 (SOD1), catalase, and glutathione peroxidase 2 (GPX) genes compared to untreated rats (P

Nigella sativa may be clinically useful for protecting beta-cells against oxidative stress. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Mol Histol. 2009 Oct ;40(5-6):379-85. Epub 2010 Jan 5. PMID: 20049514 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of the volatile oil of Nigella sativa seeds on beta-cell damage in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats: a light and electron microscopic study. Abstract:  The aim of this study was to evaluate the possible protective effects of the volatile oil of Nigella sativa (NS) seeds on insulin immunoreactivity and ultrastructural changes of pancreatic beta-cells in STZ-induced diabetic rats. STZ was injected intraperitoneally at a single dose of 50 mg/kg to induce diabetes. The rats in NS treated groups were given NS (0.2 ml/kg) once a day orally for 4 weeks starting 3 days prior to STZ injection. To date, no ultrastructural changes of pancreatic beta-cells in STZ induced diabetic rats by NS treatment have been reported. Islet cell degeneration and weak insulin immunohistochemical staining was observed in rats with STZ-induced diabetes. Increased intensity of staining for insulin, and preservation of beta-cell numbers were apparent in the NS-treated diabetic rats. The protective effect of NS on STZ-diabetic rats was evident by a moderate increase in the lowered secretory vesicles with granules and also slight destruction with loss of cristae within the mitochondria of beta-cell when compared to control rats. These findings suggest that NS treatment exerts a therapeutic protective effect in diabetes by decreasing morphological changes and preserving pancreatic beta-cell integrity. Consequently, NS may be clinically useful for protecting beta-cells against oxidative stress.

PMID:  Cell Mol Neurobiol. 2010 May ;30(4):591-8. Epub 2010 Jan 7. PMID: 20054635 Abstract Title:  Protective effect of Nigella sativa extract and thymoquinone on serum/glucose deprivation-induced PC12 cells death. Abstract:  The serum/glucose deprivation (SGD)-induced cell death in cultured PC12 cells represents a useful in vitro model for the study of brain ischemia and neurodegenerative disorders. Nigella sativa L. (family Ranunculaceae) and its active component thymoquinone (TQ) has been known as a source of antioxidants. In the present study, the protective effects of N. sativa and TQ on cell viability and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production in cultured PC12 cells were investigated under SGD conditions. PC12 cells were cultured in DMEM medium containing 10% (v/v) fetal bovine serum, 100 units/ml penicillin, and 100 microg/ml streptomycin. Cells were seeded overnight and then deprived of serum/glucose for 6 and 18 h. Cells were pretreated with different concentrations of N. sativa extract (15.62-250 microg/ml) and TQ (1.17-150 microM) for 2 h. Cell viability was quantitated by MTT assay. Intracellular ROS production was measured by flow cytometry using 2',7'-dichlorofluorescin diacetate (DCF-DA) as a probe. SGD induced significant cells toxicity after 6, 18, or 24 h (P

PMID:  Immunopharmacol Immunotoxicol. 2010 Jun ;32(2):284-96. PMID: 20105084 Abstract Title:  Radioprotective effects of black seed (Nigella sativa) oil against hemopoietic damage and immunosuppression in gamma-irradiated rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND AND AIM: Sixty male Wistar rats, divided into 4 groups, 15 each, were designed as I-control rats, II-rats orally intubated with Nigella sativa oil (1 ml/kg b.wt./day) for 5 days/week, III-whole body gamma irradiated rats with the estimated LD50/30 (4 Gray) and IV-rats daily intubated with Nigella sativa oil then subjected to whole body gamma irradiation, to investigate the radioprotective potential of Nigella crude oil against hemopoietic adverse effects of gamma irradiation.RESULTS: Irradiation resulted in significant reduction in hemolysin antibodies titers and delayed type hypersensitivity reaction of irradiated rats, in addition to significant leukopenia and significant decrease in plasma total protein and globulin concentrations and depletion of lymphoid follicles of spleen and thymus gland. Furthermore, there was a significant increase in malondialdehyde concentration with a significant decrease in plasma glutathione peroxidase, catalase and erythrocyte superoxide dismutase activities were recorded. Oral administration of Nigella sativa oil before irradiation considerably normalized all the above-mentioned criteria; and produced significant regeneration in spleen and thymus lymphoid follicles.CONCLUSION: Our results strongly recommend Nigella sativa oil as a promising natural radioprotective agent against immunosuppressive and oxidative effects of ionizing radiation.

LOS ANGELES A bank of TV sets flicker on and off one by one, each showing a different media clip from the early 1990s: gang members being interviewed, talking heads spewing political punditry, videos of looting and burning buildings. Then, they all turn on, showing the same footage of a man lying on a darkened stretch of road, illuminated only by headlights, surrounded by several LAPD officers, who proceed to taser, kick, and hit him with their batons for several minutes instantly recognizable as the 1991 Rodney King beating.

This incident and the officers subsequent acquittal is seen as the spark that ignited the 1992 LA Uprising generally referred to as the LA Riots at the time which resulted in dozens of deaths and the burning of a thousand buildings throughout South LA.

Overestimated range maps for endemic birds in Indias Western Ghats lead to underestimated threats, study finds "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

New research suggests that the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is overestimating the ranges of several bird species endemic to the Western Ghats mountain range in India, which can have major implications for determining the extinction threat faced by those species. The IUCN is an international organization that counts over 1,000 governments and NGOs amongst its members and works with more than 11,000 scientists and other experts to assess the conservation status of species around the globe. Best known to the public as the publisher of the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, the organizations work is highly influential among businesses, governments, and other decisionmakers. In a paper published earlier this week in the journal Biological Conservation, researchers detail their findings that suggest the IUCN has vastly overestimated the geographic range sizes for 17 of 18 endemic birds studied in the Western Ghats. In some cases, the researchers write in the study, the range maps supplied by BirdLife International (BLI) and used by the IUCN for its threat assessments of birds in the Western Ghats included large areas of unsuitable habitat and were so off that the threat status should be changed for at least 10 of the 18 species based on area metrics used by the IUCN for threat assessment.

Evaluation of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities of seed extracts from six Nigella species. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Med Food. 2009 Apr ;12(2):408-15. PMID: 19459745 Abstract Title:  Evaluation of antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities of seed extracts from six Nigella species. Abstract:  Seed extracts from six species of the genus Nigella (Family Ranunculaceae)-Nigella arvensis, Nigella damascena, Nigella hispanica, Nigella nigellastrum, Nigella orientalis, and Nigella sativa-obtained by successive extraction with n-hexane, chloroform, and methanol, were tested for their antimicrobial activity against 10 strains of pathogenic bacteria and yeast using the microdilution method as well as for anti-inflammatory properties by in vitro cyclooxygenase (COX)-1 and COX-2 assay. Chemical characterization of active extracts was carried out including free and fixed fatty acid analysis. Comparison of antimicrobial activity showed that N. arvensis chloroform extract was the most potent among all species tested, inhibiting Gram-positive bacterial and yeast strains with minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values ranging from 0.25 to 1 mg/mL. With the exception of selective inhibitory action of n-hexane extract of N. orientalis on growth of Bacteroides fragilis (MIC = 0.5 mg/mL), we observed no antimicrobial activity for other Nigella species. Anti-inflammatory screening revealed that N. sativa, N. orientalis, N. hispanica, N. arvensis n-hexane, and N. hispanica chloroform extracts had strong inhibitory activity (more than 80%) on COX-1 and N. orientalis, N. arvensis, and N. hispanica n-hexane extracts were most effective against COX-2, when the concentration of extracts was 100 microg/mL in both COX assays. In conclusion, N. arvensis, N. orientalis, and N. hispanica seeds, for the first time examined for antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects, revealed their significant activity in one or both assays.

These findings validate the use of Black seed in gastropathies induced by necrotizing agents. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Saudi J Gastroenterol. 2008 Jul ;14(3):128-34. PMID: 19568521 Abstract Title:  Gastroprotective effect of an aqueous suspension of black cumin Nigella sativa on necrotizing agents-induced gastric injury in experimental animals. Abstract:  BACKGROUND/AIM: Previous studies on"Black seed"or"Black Cumin"Nigella sativa (NS) have reported a large number of pharmacological activities including its anti-ulcer potential. These studies employed either fixed oil, volatile oil components or different solvent extracts. In folkloric practices, NS seeds are taken as such, in the form of coarse dry powder or the powdered seeds are mixed with water. This study examines the effect of NS aqueous suspension on experimentally induced gastric ulcers and basal gastric secretion in rats to rationalize its use by herbal and Unani medicine practitioners.MATERIALS AND METHODS: The study was conducted at the Medicinal, Aromatic and Poisonous Plants Research Center, College of Pharmacy, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Acute gastric ulceration was produced by various noxious chemicals (80% ethanol, 0.2 M NaOH, 25% NaCl and indomethacin) in Wistar albino rats. Anti-secretory studies were undertaken in a separate group of rats. Gastric wall mucus contents and non-protein sulfhydryl concentration were estimated, and gastric tissue was examined histopathologically.RESULTS: An aqueous suspension of Black seed significantly prevented gastric ulcer formation induced by necrotizing agents. It also significantly ameliorated the ulcer severity and basal gastric acid secretion in pylorus-ligated Shay rats. Moreover, the suspension significantly replenished the ethanol-induced depleted gastric wall mucus content levels and gastric mucosal non-protein sulfhydryl concentration. The anti-ulcer effect was further confirmed histopathologically.CONCLUSION: These findings validate the use of Black seed in gastropathies induced by necrotizing agents. The anti-ulcer effect of NS is possibly prostaglandin-mediated and/or through its antioxidant and anti-secretory activities.

Also in attendance at the plenary was UN Secretary-General Antnio Guterres, who said he would be on the frontlines in the fight against anti-Semitism to make sure it is condemned and eradicated. According to his spokesman, Mr. Guterres said that while there is hope that the horrors and the shock of the Holocaust would put an end to antisemitism, unfortunately, it is not the case, and antisemitism is alive and well.

In a world with a multiplication of forms of populism, xenophobia and hatred, he said antisemitism has gained an intensity that is unacceptable and that we need to fight with strong determination. Mr. Guterres added that a modern form of antisemitism is the denial of the right of the State of Israel to exist, noting that Israel has an undeniable right to exist and to live in peace and security with its neighbours. And he reiterated his support for the two-state solution.

I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe: By Julia Rampen

24/4/2017- Aprs le #Brexit, le printemps des peuples est invitable ! wrote the far-right Front National leader Marine Le Pen, days after Brexit. Well, the blossom is on the trees, and Le Pen is through to the second round of the French presidential elections, so presumably were bang in the middle of that inevitable peoples spring. After all, a referendum that left Britains metropolitan elite weeping into their EU flags was swiftly followed by the complete overturning of US political and ethical traditions. Donald Trump defied polling and won the Presidency, all the while proclaiming he was Mr Brexit. Then, in December, the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi held a referendum on constitutional changes and lost. Both Europhiles and Eurosceptics read the runes. Ukips on and off leader Nigel Farage crowed of 2016: First we had the Brexit deliverance, then the Trump triumph, then the Italian rebellion. Democracy and the rebirth of the nation state!

As this illustrates, the far-right want you to believe all these results are linked, and that they represent a popular, democratic movement. In the UK at least, the liberal left has drunk the English champagne. Labour is agonising over how to reconnect with traditional voters Ukip is apparently so in touch with which dont seem to include ethnic minorities, young people and those living in cities. Being tough on immigration is the answer to modern woes, and globalisation is a dirty word that can only represent multinational interests and not, say, cheaper food on the table. There are debates to be had about globalisation, of course, and the lingering impact of the 2008 financial crash, and the fact wages havent risen, and public services have been cut, and that in some northern towns, people from different ethnic backgrounds live segregated lives. But if the first round of the French presidential election can do us one favour, its to dispense with the narrative that there is something inevitable about the end of liberalism.

Four doses of NS were used (100, 200, 400, and 600 mg/kg/day). Each dose group was further divided into 3 duration subgroups of 5 rats each, the feeding of NS seeds continued for one, 2, and 4 weeks. Control animals were divided into 3 main groups of 5 rats each. The rats were sacrificed at one, 2, and 4 weeks after feeding. Lipid parameters were measured.RESULTS: Rats treated with the 400mg dose for one week's duration showed a significant increase in high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels. There was a significant decrease in low density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels after one week for 400 and 600 mg doses, and all doses after 2 weeks and 4 weeks for 200 and 600 mg doses when compared to control groups. There was a significant decrease in very low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol levels after one week for 200, 400, and 600 mg doses, and all doses for 2 and 4 weeks. A 400 mg dose for 2 weeks, and all doses for 4 weeks caused a significant decrease in triglyceride levels. There was a significant decrease of total cholesterol levels in all doses after 4 weeks of NS feeding.CONCLUSION: These results indicate that NS may ameliorate the alteration in the lipid levels caused by diseases or toxic agents.

U.S. Army Cant Add Pricing Safeguard to Sanofis Zika Vaccine License "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The U.S. Army has developed a vaccine for Zika, which we funded (to the tune of $1 billion in research and develop), and now they are about to turn it over and grant exclusive marketing rights to the French-based, multi-national drug maker, Sanofi. With NO LIMITS on how much it may charge consumers. So, not only have we

Crazy! If Lil Kim Launches Nuke, Washington State Is NOT Allowed to Have Evacuation Plan "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


Despite the constant threats and missile tests coming out of North Korea, emergency management officials in Washington state say they are prevented from forming an evacuation plan in the event of a nuclear attack.

State law does not allow any advanced planning, said Karina Shagren with the Washington State Emergency Management Division.

RCW 38.52.030, passed in 1983, says The comprehensive, all-hazard emergency plan authorized under this subsection may not include preparation for emergency evacuation or relocation of residents in anticipation of nuclear attack.

Nigella sativa oil and Thymoquinone correct STZ-diabetes-induced alterations in CK-MB and brain monoamines due to their antioxidant properties. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharmacology. 2009 ;84(3):127-34. Epub 2009 Aug 13. PMID: 19684436 Abstract Title:  Effects of Nigella sativa oil and thymoquinone on oxidative stress and neuropathy in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Abstract:  We examined whether Nigella sativa (NS) oil and its active constituent thymoquinone (TQ) attenuate oxidative stress in the heart and brain in an experimental model of diabetes mellitus using streptozotocin (STZ). Oxidative stress was assessed by measuring cardiac and brain nitric oxide (NO), lipid peroxide levels, glutathione (GSH) and antioxidant enzyme activities, i.e. glutathione-S-transferase (GST) and catalase. Cardiac metabolic damage was estimated by measuring cardiac creatine kinase muscle and brain types (CK-MB). Brain monoamine levels were also evaluated. STZ diabetes induced a significant increase in heart and brain NO and malondialdehyde concentrations compared with the control group. These changes were attenuated by posttreatment of rats with NS oil and TQ. STZ diabetes induced oxidative stress via a significant decrease in GST, GSH and catalase. These lowered levels were improved by either NS oil or TQ administration. Serum CK-MB was decreased in the diabetic rats, which recovered with NS oil and TQ administration. During the course of diabetes, there was a marked increase in norepinephrine and dopamine concentrations and a marked decrease in serotonin concentration compared to the control group. These findings were partly reversed by oral administration of either NS oil or TQ. It is concluded that NS and TQ correct STZ-diabetes-induced alterations in CK-MB and brain monoamines due to their antioxidant properties.

Gaia Portal -- April 26th 2017: Plenary submissions are in order | with interpretations by Justin "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black. For other interpretations of these reports see Rosalie Parker and Kauilapele. 

My apologies for not producing these interpretations more consistently. I have a lot of research projects going on behind the scenes at the moment, which is important for developments that are coming forward soon. As much as I would like to say I will be more consistent with these, I can only promise I will do my best to get them done. I feel like some of the most philosophic exploration happens in these updates, a fundamental part of the great work in my view.
