Google Photos Now Suggests Photos to Archive Using A.I. "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Google has been steadily adding features to their Google Photos app since I/O 2017. The new archive feature isnt the most exciting of them, but it has an interesting trick up its sleeve.

Compared to the content-aware fill, photo books, and automated sharing that Google is rolling out, archiving tools are less than thrilling. Perhaps thats why Google did not make much of a fuss when they started rolling out Archive a few weeks ago.

Archive allows you to hide photos from your main Photos display without deleting them, which is handy for screenshots and receipts. The interesting addition to this feature is a new machine learning-powered suggestion in the Assistant tab that will suggest images that you may want to archive.

The Assistant does a great job of pulling up screenshots and receipts, but also uninteresting images (like a closeup of a car door) that are unlikely to be your most prized photographs.

This option should have already rolled out for you, on whatever device that you use Google Photos on. Were still waiting for automated sharing, and content-aware fill is still somewhere on the horizon.

These new features are making Google Photos an appealing place to store your photo collection, as long as youre happy to have your library hosted on Google servers.

Groe Demo-Verbotszone zum G20 in Hamburg "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Eine politische Groveranstaltung in der Stadt durchzufhren und gleichzeitig alle Gegenveranstaltungen im ffentlichen Raum drum herum zu verbieten, ist schon eine ziemlich groe Fuck You Demokratie Ansage von ganz oben. Was viele bereits geahnt haben, tritt jetzt tatschlich ein: Hamburg bekommt zum G20 Gipfel ein weitrumiges Demonstrations- und Versammlungsverbot, das sich ber einen knapp 40 Quadratkilometer groen Bereich zwischen St. Pauli und dem Flughafen erstreckt. Im diesem Bereich darf vom 7. Juli um 6 Uhr bis zum 8. Juli um 17:00 keine Versammlung stattfinden. Das hat die Hamburger Polizei heute bekannt gegeben. Das offizielle Wording fr das Demoverbot ist Transfer-Korridor. Die genaue Rechtsgrundlage der Verbots gibt es auf der Seite der Hamburger Polizei zu lesen. Es kann wohl ziemlich sicher damit gerechnet werden, dass das Demoverbot in den nchsten Tagen von mehreren Seiten vor Gericht in Frage gestellt wird. Was dabei heraus kommt bleibt abzuwarten. Eine ausfhrliche Stellungnahme zu dem Verbot gibt es auf hamburg.de zu lesen. In den letzten Wochen hie es von offizieller Seite immer wieder, dass es kein Demoverbot geben wird. Ein Schritt der die politische Groveranstaltung noch mal ein ganzes Stck absurder macht und zeigt, dass der G20 Gipfel in der Innenstadt absolut keinen Sinn macht. Dennoch darf ganz sicher zum G20 mit sehr viel kreativem und friedlichen Protest ...

How Canadian Law Mistreats Indigenous Women. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Indian Act has created false social categories of identity such as "Status" and "Non-Status Indians" and applied legal recognition to a persons First Nations heritage. This determination of status is important, as it determines whether people are given certain rights such as the right to live on a reservation or to be exempt from paying taxes. This administration of status is a state-sponsored form of assimilation and cultural destruction.

Students Fight Proposed Cuts to the Humanities at SUNY Stony Brook "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Students at the May 3 protest against budget cuts to humanities departments at Stony Brook University (photo by Jenifer Holden)

When Digby Baker-Porazinski received the email, a significant academic decision about which hed been ambivalent suddenly crystalized. The Stony Brook University freshman hadnt yet declared a major, mainly because he had a number of interests and didnt want to close off any opportunities. But the email propelled Baker-Porazinski to make a decision: hed declare himself a theater major as a sign of solidarity with a department that was suddenly under threat.

The email, written by Department of Theatre Arts chair John Lutterbie, was sent April 28 to students in that department. It had clearly been written at a moment when Lutterbie was reeling from just-received news that his department was among those being targeted for significant restructuring by the university, an effort to mitigate an anticipated budget shortfall of $1.5 million, the origin of which has still not been explained well and which is particularly hard to understand in light of the fact that the state approved a $8 billion allocation to SUNY schools in April. Lutterbie explained to students that he and his colleagues had just received the news that same morning, and that while many of the specifics of the plan were not yet clear to him, those that had been divulged by Sacha Kopp, Dean of Arts and Sciences, would essentially gut the department.

Das Smartphones einen weitaus greren Einfluss den ffentlichen Raum haben, als die meisten sich jemals auch nut ertrumt htten, ist mittlerweile klar.

All Pictures by courtesy of the artist Das rund 30 Meter hohe Bild trgt den Titel Baring machine und zeigt einen Braunbren, der zur Hlfte mit einem roten Tuch verhngt ist. Wie bereits in frheren Arbeiten, thematisieren die beiden Schweizer Knstler mit ihrer neuesten Arbeit die Beziehung und das Ungleichgewicht zwischen Mensch und Natur. Die beiden Knstler sagen ber ihre neueste Arbeit: This work is about proportions and imbalances, about awareness and involvement. Systems, as we know them, are human structures that often take directions that are far from human nature (and rights) and from the environment; from nature itself. This trend has led and leads to an emotional and intellectual detachment where everything becomes acceptable also when its damaging, where theres no more perception of consequences and so no more perception of reality.

Ufology is the study of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFO), or as they are being called today, Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP).

What Is German Expressionism? A Crash Course on the Cinematic Tradition That Gave Us Metropolis, Nosferatu & More "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

German Expressionism: we've all heard of it, and though only some would even try to define it, we all, like old Potter Stewart, know it when we see it. Or do we? The movements under the umbrella of German Expressionism bore vivid and influential fruits in architecture, painting, sculpture and especially film  The Cabinet of Dr. CaligariNosferatu, and Metropolis, to say nothing of their countless descendants, will come right to the minds of most movie-lovers but the circumstance from which it first arose remain not particularly well-understood by the public, or at least those of the public who haven't seen the brief Crash Course video on German Expressionism above (and the even shorter No Film School explainer below).

Though it also stands perfectly well alone, this primer comes as the seventh chapter of the sixteen-part Crash Course Film History, which we first featured back in April. Here host Craig Benzine addresses the question of just what makes The Cabinet of Dr. CaligariNosferatu, and Metropolis in particular so memorable by examining each film and its auteur director Robert Wiene, F.W.

Comey Admits Trump Never Under Investigation, 1665 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good morning, Im still reporting on Comey Admits Trump Never Under Investigation, 1665 Synopsis: Today, former FBI Director Jim Comey testified before the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and admitted that President Trump was right again. He was never under investigation by the FBI. Other than that admission, the purpose of todays show trial was twofold: #1 to try to rehabilitate the reputation of James Comey so that he may be inserted into government at some future time (Supreme Court?); and #2 to provide Democrat members of the committee the opportunity to make some critical TV soundbites critical of the President. Remember, 1/3 of the Senate stands for election next year an election cycle that favors the Republicans as much as the 2016 election favored Democrat Senators. The question of the day to the big MSM and the Democrats was whether President Trumps request to lay off General Flynns investigation constituted an obstruction of justice. But, according to one of the nations indisputable legal experts, thats impossible.

Israels Liberty Attack Did Not Begin or End in 1967 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Israels Liberty Attack Did Not Begin or End in 1967

On June 8th, 1967, with cold-blooded mass murder as the objective, Israeli warplanes and warships made every effort to sink the USS Liberty, a mostly unarmed US intelligence vessel off the coast of Gaza, and to kill all 294 on board. Thanks only to the heroism of the Liberty crew and possibly a Soviet vessels offer of assistance (refused), the attack was called off before completion, although the attackers had plenty of reason to think that the sea would do the rest of the job for them.

Twice, US warplanes from the US Sixth Fleet responded to distress calls from the Liberty, on...

New revelations in attack on American spy ship "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Bryce Lockwood, Marine staff sergeant, Russian-language expert, recipient of the Silver Star for heroism, ordained Baptist minister, is shouting into the phone.

"I'm angry! I'm seething with anger! Forty years, and I'm seething with anger!"

Lockwood was aboard the USS Liberty, a super-secret spy ship on station in the eastern Mediterranean, when four Israeli fighter jets flew out of the afternoon sun to strafe and bomb the virtually defenseless vessel on June 8, 1967, the fourth day of what would become known as the Six-Day War.

For Lockwood and many other survivors, the anger is mixed with incredulity: that Israel would attack an important ally, then attribute the attack to a case of mistaken identity by Israeli pilots who had confused the U.S. Navy's most distinctive ship with an Egyptian horse-cavalry transport that was half its size and had a dissimilar profile. And they're also incredulous that, for years, their own government would reject their calls for a thorough investigation.

"They tried to lie their way out of it!" Lockwood shouts. "I don't believe that for a minute! You just don't shoot at a ship at sea without identifying it, making sure of your target!"

Four decades later, many of the more than two dozen Liberty survivors located and interviewed by the Tribune cannot talk about the attack without shouting or weeping.

Their anger has been stoked by the declassification of government documents and the recollections of former military personnel, including some quoted in this article for the first time, which strengthen doubts about the U.S. National Security Agency's position that it never intercepted the communications of the attacking Israeli pilots -- communications, according to those who remember seeing them, that showed the Israelis knew they were attacking an American naval vessel.

Doctors Tortured Patients at Ontario Mental-Health Centre "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From The Globe and Mail: A judge has recently ruled that patients at a mental health facility in Ontario were tortured by doctors over a 17-year period in unethical and degrading human experiments. Techniques used on patients included solitary confinement, administration of hallucinogens and delirium-producing drugs, and brainwashing methods developed by the CIA.

Danny Joanisse, now 61, was placed in Oak Ridge just before turning 15, and spent most of the next 34 years inside. One part of his treatment for his borderline personality disorder was the Capsule Program, in which up to seven patients were cuffed to one another and placed naked in a small, windowless, continually lit room for days on end, and given food through a straw in the wall.

In an interview, Mr. Joannise described rebelling and being placed in solitary confinement for several days at a time. He said he was tied up in a turkey position, with his ankles cuffed to each other and tied to his waist, and left in that position for two weeks. The pain was unbearable, he said. All I know is, Ill never get back what I lost.'

Dealing With Changes in Psychiatry Through the Years "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this guest post for Shrink Rap, Dr. Maher critiques the ways psychiatry has changed over the years. While psychiatry used to be humanistically, psychodynamically oriented, the profession now almost entirely focuses on diagnosis and drugging.

Then prozac arrived on the scene and I woke up in a different profession. No longer was it about meaning and humanity and insight into who you are, how you got to be that way, and the unconscious forces that led you to get in your own way. No longer was transference the mechanism of action. My field became about symptom constellations, drugs and/or skills to fix what was wrong with you.

Heres Why I Pre-Ordered the Sucker Edition for $2500 "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

If youre going to be a gamer, you need to know a good deal when you see one.

When the gaming market went from hard copy discs with booklets for $60, to digital-only downloads at the reduced rate of only $59.99, the gaming world finally opened it eyes to one simple fact: you need to research before you buy.

I did my research, and heres why I chose the sucker edition for $2500.

Its simple math, really. The Legendary Edition, a cool $150, includes access to the game a full three hours before the normal edition masses. Which is great, but dont get caught up on that. Because the Kings Edition, right around $500, includes a bobble head, collectible metal case, and a beautiful fold out mapwhich could otherwise only be viewed by the click of a single button. So of course the Kings Edition is a better deal, but lets be real: you dont need these real-world trinkets.

You need virtual ones.

If you get those crappy versions are you even a real fan at all?! Thats where the best deal, the $2500 Sucker Edition comes in.

Despite the best efforts of the Deep State and their mainstream media cronies, the Seth Rich story will not die. Despite them trying their best to slap the conspiracy theory label on it, the facts simply do not hold up to the official narrative. An armed robbery with all his possessions intact? Coupled with the fact that Rich may have been the infamous DNC leaker, you see why people are refusing to take this at face value.

In the following video, Right Wing News notes how the Seth Rich story is gaining steam, with the latest being an official petition to the White House to appoint a special prosecutor to look into his murder. The petition needs 100,000 signatures by June 18 to receive an official response; as of this writing with 10 days to go, it has already garnered over 54,000 signatures. Sign the petition, and dont let this story die!

EU to be run by Sky "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Following the turmoil caused by the UK voting to leave the EU, officials have decided to award the job of running the organisation to Sky. A Sky spokesman explained that they were terribly pleased to be awarded the multi-million Euro contract and they outlined their proposals.

We intend to package up the various parts of the EU. For example there will be the free trade package, the freedom of movement package and the monetary unification package. Governments can elect to buy into any or all packages, he said, before confirming that BT still has the European sport package, but were working with the German Army to resolve that.

Regarding the Brexit vote, Sky have passed the UK government onto their retention team. Weve suggested the UK drops the freedom of movement package for a couple of years and have offered a reduced price for the next twelve months. The price will rise again after the introductory period and they will be locked in, but only for twenty years, but were sure we can accommodate them year to year with new packages, such as access to the European Union Army, said a retention team spokesman.

Talk Talk was disappointed not to be awarded the contract, and say their suggestion to outsource the EU administration to India was probably misunderstood.

Husker DS and Husker DNts: A Guide to Office Culture Now That Youve Finally Given Up "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Look, I can go back to playing in a band whenever I want, OK? Sure, maybe being the lead singer of Crucial Logic wasnt covering my monthly payments for my Ford Taurus, or my rent, or anything, really, but this job is only temporary. I can go back to rocking whenever I want. But for now, heres some tips on how to get by in your new office job that youll probably work until youre old and die. But not me. My bands gonna take off any day now.

Husker D:

Remind everyone in the office that youre not some mindless drone sellout like the rest of them. Youve read Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, so you know that youre not defined by your khakis. OK, maybe youve seen the movie based on the book Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk, but you totally get it.

Husker Dnt:

Ruin the ending of Fight Club. Some people havent seen it and they need to experience its brilliance for the very first time.

Husker D:

Leave copies of your bands demo laying around the office so your coworkers will ask you about it, and then, yeah, sure, I guess you can play a song or two for them and tell them about how your band wouldve gotten to open for Nirvana if Nirvana had still been around in 2011.

Husker Dnt:

Learn anyones names, dont make any friends. Youre gonna be here, one, two, five years absolute max. Then you are fucking right back on track to follow your dreams. So why waste any time making plans to see the new Transformers with whats-his-ass from the mailroom?

Prepper Sustainability: How to Observe and Monitor Local Game "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

I have written a few articles here and there on the benefits of hunting, as well as some firearms for you to consider.  There is a good reason for becoming proficient in hunting.  You must eat, and you must feed your family.  Sometimes its the small thingsthe small details that lead to success in the larger, bigger picture.  In order to be proficient with hunting, you need to learn about your quarry.

(Sign up for our FREE newsletter to get the latest prepping advice, gardening secrets, homesteading tips and more delivered straight to your inbox!)

Why is this important?  Because in a grid-down, SHTF situation, youre going to need to eat, and you probably will not be able to grow everything you need or raise all the livestock you will use to support the family.  The blending of agriculture and animal husbandry is not complete until you have also learned to become a hunter-gatherer when need be.  Our Revolutionary forefathers supplemented the meat slaughtered at the happy butchers with meat they shot in the woods.

So, how do you learn about your quarry?  There are lots of different ways.  The library is replete with books and videos on every subject from deer to migratory birds, from field care and butchering wild game to the habits of game animals.  No, what Im referring to here is to take the time and do a study of your immediate area and/or the closest woods to your home.

A notebook needs to be compiled with your observations.  It is not hunting season, and there are plenty of deer and other game animals to observe and learn about.  Finding the deer trails means finding where the deer go in the normal course of the day to forage and to drink.  Learning where the squirrels can be found, where the pheasants bed down for the night, and where aquatic birds such as ducks and geese can be found are some keys.  By observing them, you also have to maintain your silence and mask your scentso youre training while youre observing them: youre practicing your stealth and masking your presence.

You need to find out where your predators...

Be Careful Where You Buy Your Mining Hardware From "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We are getting reports for a new trend that is peaking up recently with all of the shortages with hardware due to the boom in mining. It seems that some retailers will happily sell you their stock of GPUs and will then tell you that they will not give you any warranty or accept RMA in case of a problem if you are going to be using the video cards for mining. At the same time they are happily willing to sell you not only the GPUs, but all other hardware that you may need to build a mining rig. The problem here is that instead of clearly pointing that they will not hold any warranty for products used for mining, they take your money, ship you the goods and then inform you that there will be no warranty if the hardware is used for mining. This is just not the correct way of doing business though it is hard to confirm what a GPU was actually used for anyway, it sounds more like a threat to the customer than something that can be truly enforced.

The main concerns with hardware used for mining are regarding the GPUs working under heavy load 24/7. This makes them prone to more issues as they hold higher operating temperatures, fans are more susceptible to failure (especially if not good quality ones) and as a result the cards can fail. Base on our experience however if properly cooled and maintained the fact that a good GPU is used for mining instead of occasional gaming is not really a problem. Most of the GPU failures usually happen in the first few days and are often caused by some small defect that is prone to result in an issue sooner or later anyway. All in all it is important that miners take a proper care of their mining hardware in order to ensure its long and reliable operation and if they do it good enough, then the trouble they will have are going to much less than if they dont

The problem is that there are a lot of people that are getting into mining that do not care about anything, they just throw a bunch of video cards somewhere and start mining and when there is a problem they just RMA them. They do not care about proper cooling, optimizing settings for efficiency or performance or anything else, they just want to mine and make profit from as easy and as fast as they can. We know for a fact that one of the most common RMA reasons are failed fans of video cards that are under warranty, again here some vendors are to blame as they are...

Why I Don't Trust My Doctor When it Comes to Vaccination "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"


How can you go against what your doctor recommends, dont you trust your doctor!?
It seems a give-in that medical professionals know more than we non-medical people about vaccines, right? Surprisingly its not always the case. Vaccinology, immunology, or epidemiology are specialties not included in general medical degrees these specialties require additional training.

The stark reality is that med students are taught very little about vaccines. This is reiterated in the article, Vaccines: What Your Doctors Know and Dont Know, which is in essence a compilation of quotes from doctors revealing what they have learnt about vaccines in med school. An excerpt: [1]
Doctors learn a lot about diseases in medical school, but we learn very little about vaccines. We dont review the research ourselves. We never learn what goes into making vaccines or how their safety is studied. So, when patients want a little more information about shots, all we can really say as doctors is that the diseases are bad and the shots are good. Dr Bob Sears
In a recent discussion I was in a family doctor expressed concern over a recent article she read that touted, doctors spend their lives researching vaccines. The problem she had was that this simply isnt true at all. The doctor explained that not only are doctors taught extremely little about vaccines in med school, they dont routinely do ongoing research either they would love to but simply dont have the time.

She went on to say that the bulk of the recommendations doctors make are dictated to them by major health organizations. Doctors are told what to recommend to their patients, they dont develop these recommendations after years of independent research. If you want to know what type of education most doctors receive about vaccines, read the latest handout from the CDC. Given the minimal education doctors are given regarding vaccines it wouldnt take long to get to the point you know more than your own doctor on the subject.

But theres more to it than just a lack of training, a lot of people have lost trust in conventional medicine because of poor treatment. A common scenario:

BEN HUNT REFLECTS ON THE NIGHT HE ACCIDENTALLY ENDED HIS FIRST GRADE CAREER

The Illawarra Cutters say that Ben Hunt has the potential to light up the NSW Cup next year when he arrives in Sydney.

Ben represents the most marquee signing for a second grade team in our clubs history, Cutters coach Matthew Head told the media today.

I mean this is a guy who, up until the dropped ball that was heard around the world in 2015, was a pretty good player he almost feels first grade to us.

Hunt has for the most part remained tightlipped about his move to the Cutters next year, however, he did make a brief comment to Channel Nine on the way to catching a REX flight to Ipswich this morning.

I guess its poetic, Benji Marshall takes my spot, and now Ill be taking his old spot at the Cutters Hunt said.

The Topography of Tears: A Stunning Aerial Tour of the Landscape of Human Emotion Through an Optical Microscope "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

From Blake to biochemistry, proof that we cannot put our feelings in one place and our thoughts in another.


Emotions are not just the fuel that powers the psychological mechanism of a reasoning creature, they are parts, highly complex and messy parts, of this creatures reasoning itself, philosopher Martha Nussbaum wrote in her incisive treatise on the intelligence of emotions, titled after Prousts powerful poetic image depicting the emotions as geologic upheavals of thought. But much of the messiness of our emotions comes from the inverse: Our thoughts, in a sense, are geologic upheavals of feeling an immensity of our reasoning is devoted to making sense of, or rationalizing, the emotional patters that underpin our intuitive responses to the world and therefore shape our very reality. Our interior lives unfold across landscapes that seem to belong to an alien world whose terrain is as difficult to map as it is to navigate a world against which the young Dostoyevsky roiled in a frustrated letter on reason and emotion, and one which Antoine de Saint-Exupry embraced so lyrically in one of the most memorable lines from The Little Prince: It is such a secret place, the land of tears.

The geologic complexity of that secret place is what photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher explores in The Topography of Tears (public library) a striking series of duotone photographs of tears shed for a kaleidoscope of reasons, dried on glass slides and captured in a hundredfold magnification through a high-resolution optical microscope. What emerges is an enthralling aerial tour of the landscape of human emotion and its the most stirring eruptions joy, grief, gladness, remorse, hope reminding us that the terra incognita of our interiority is better trekked with an explorers benevolent curiosity about the varied beauty of the landscape than with a conquistadors forceful intent to control and sublimate. (Artist Maira Kalman affirmed this notion with great simplicity and poignancy in a page from her marvelous philosophica...

Filter, Distort & Fabricate How Mass Media Controls Mass Mind "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In my 30 years as a self-improvement coach, the most important insight is that where you put your attention is where your energy goes

If you find that hard to believe, try this: Walk through a crowd. Put your attention on the people. Then walk through the same crowd again and put your attention on the gaps between the people.

More of them will now make way. Try it. It never fails. Heres another experiment: Stand at the corner of any city street and look upwards for a while. You will notice people around you also look upwards.

They want to know what you are looking at, and for that brief period you determined the direction of their attention.

If I tell a group of people to think of a red car, there is a great likelihood that all of them will do it. And if I tell them not to think of a red car they will also think of a red car!

They could have chosen to think of a blue mountain instead. From that you realise how easy it is to steer mass attention.

Rarely will anyone form their own thought or choose different than what they are told. In fact, if you do not make decisions and intentions, someone else will do it for you.

You know this from your own life: If your spouse asks you where you want to go for dinner and you dont really have any specific preference, then they will decide where to go. The same applies on a mass-scale.

Due to a general weakness of will and awareness, most people have their reality decided for them, with merely the illusion of choice given such as being able to choose whether you will pay your taxes by credit card or bank wire.

In school, children do not learn how to think but what to think. They do not learn how to steer attention but instead various things they are supposed to steer attention to.

It is humbling to realise that most people on the planet do not practice focusing, guiding, re-directing, shifting, retrieving and un-sticking their own attention.

Thus the life-experience of most of us is determined by external agendas as given by mass media, schools, our parents and countless other sources that have very little to do with our inn...

From now until almost the end of the year, a special astrological configuration will be stuck in the sky. The aspect seems to foreshadow a serious, determined and energized period of time. It is a clear sign of rejuvenated inspiration, which we seem to have been needing for a long time. Rejuvenated energy and inspiration but in a somber, post lesson type feeling: an intuitive, music appreciating watery energy, and a solid, energized crystallization, solidification of ideas will occur for the next several months the energy will again feel ripe for functioning in life generally

A guy called Lord Buckethead stood against Theresa May and his political manifesto is making people cry with laughter "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

MY 2017 MANIFESTO: Strong, not entirely stable, leadership

1. The abolition of the Lords (except me).

2. Full facial coverings to be kept legal, especially bucket-related headgear.

3. No third runway to be built at Heathrow: where were going we dont need runways.

4. Ceefax to be brought back immediately, with The Oracle and other Teletext services to be rolled out by the next Parliament.

5. Regeneration of Nicholsons Shopping Centre, Maidenhead.

6. Buckethead on Brexit: a referendum should be held about whether there should be a second referendum.

7. Nuclear weapons: A firm public commitment to build the 100bn renewal of the Trident weapons system, followed by an equally firm private commitment not to build it. Theyre secret submarines, no one will ever know. Its a win win.

8. Nationalisation of Adele: in order to maximise the efficient use of UK resources, the time is right for great British assets to be brought into public ownership for the common good. This is to be achieved through capital spending.

9. A moratorium until 2022 on whether Birmingham should be converted into a star base.

10. Legalisation of the hunting of fox-hunters.

11. New voting age limit of 16 to be introduced. New voting age limit of 80 to be introduced too.

12. Katie Hopkins to be banished to the Phantom Zone.

13. Stop selling arms to Saudi Arabia. Start buying lasers from Lord Buckethead.

14. Prospective MPs to live in the seat they wish to represent for at least five years before election, to improve local representation in Parliament.

15. Free bikes for everyone, to help combat obesity, traffic congestion and bike theft.

Innovative Ways to Create the Perfect Vegetable Garden "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Growing your own vegetables and fruits is one of the best ways to ensure ready access to fresh, nutrient-dense and chemical-free food. The pastime is catching on, with 74 percent of U.S. households taking part in lawn and garden activities in 2016 a 4 percent rise from just a year before.1

The 2015 National Gardening Survey revealed that food gardening and flower gardening top the list of most popular forms of gardening, with 36 percent of U.S. households growing their own food.2 The National Gardening Associations 2014 special report Garden to Table also highlighted the food revolution taking place in the U.S. as more Americans recognize and enjoy the benefits of homegrown food:3

Countless communities, schools and families are growing more of their own food! Today, food gardening is at the highest level in more than a decade. In the past five years alone, spending on food gardening has increased 43 percent; urban gardeners have increased by 29 percent.

And, most encouragingly, young people the millennials have become the fastest growing segment of the population to start a food garden. Young people have begun to champion the connection between growing food, eating well and healthy living.

Ten DIY Gardening Hacks That Really Work

There are many misconceptions surrounding home gardening, including that you need a large space to grow a meaningful amount of food. In reality, Rodale's The Backyard Homestead suggests you can grow enough organic food to feed a family of four on only a quarter-acre of land year-round.4 There are certainly many tips and tricks you can use to reap a bountiful harvest even if your garden is confined to containers on a balcony or a small plot of land in a community garden.

The key is jumping in and getting your feet wet (or in this case your hands dirty). It often takes a process of trial-and-error to figure out the best growing methods for your needs, but you can use the gardening hacks that follow, compiled by Rodales Organic Life from Instagra...

All About Growing Celery "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

When you think about it, celery is a rather odd vegetable, quite different from others. At first bite, while it does deliver an amazing crunch, it doesn't seem to have all that much flavor. Slice it up for a garden salad, however, and you'll notice how fresh and "foody" it tastes, adding unmistakable flavor to a variety of dishes, from lentil soup to stir-fries.

It can be enjoyed as a delicious snack with nut butter, and it's a perfect "finger" food to place on a healthy snack tray with raw grass fed cheese, pickles and other crunchy raw veggies.

Celery is a descendant of wild celery, related to parsnips, parsley and fennel of the Apiaceae plant family. A billion pounds are produced in the U.S. annually, 80 percent of it from California, Michigan and Florida, but it has a history in a surprising number of regions of the world, including Sweden, Asia, Egypt and mountainous areas of India. In Europe, celery is blanched or deprived of light as it's growing to give the stalks a lighter color and a more delicate consistency.

Many people prefer using the darker green outer stalks for cooking, and the paler, more tender stalks for eating raw or in dishes like cold egg salad. In addition, celery seeds have a remarkably robust, almost sharp flavor, and it doesn't take much to add flavor and zest to sauces, chutneys and condiments. As such, they're often used for making pickles.

Celery seeds are also good in soups and even sprinkled on sandwiches as a topping, but remember: A little goes a long way. Aside from the seeds required to sow in order to grow celery, celery seeds must be labeled as food-grade. Many grocery stores keep them in stock, but they can also be ordered online. Celery itself can be purchased in grocery stores, supermarkets and many farmers markets, but it's much healthier grown organically in your own garden.

How to Grow Organic Celery in Your Garden

Growing organic produce like celery simply means without the use of harmful chemicals. Celery, unfortunately, is one crop that is heavily sprayed in commercial operations, so grow your own! While it's possible to pick up celery seedlings or "starts" at many nurseries, you'll have more varieties to choose from if you buy seeds, instead.

Read the labels to find out which varieties work best in your zone, noting differences in the color (some have a red tinge), flavor and hardiness of the end product. Organic Life suggests sowing your seeds indoors 10 to 12 weeks before the last projected spring frost, following th...

Give us back our land: paper giants struggle to resolve conflicts with communities in Sumatra "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A new campaign by a leading environmental NGO offers a rare glimpse into the frontlines of Indonesias deforestation crisis, where communities are locked in land disputes with some of the worlds biggest pulp and paper companies. Beyond Paper Promises, an online platform launched by the Rainforest Action Network (RAN), tells the personal stories of people who have suffered land grabbing at the hands of two of the industrys biggest names Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) and Toba Pulp Lestari (TPL). Despite commitments from both companies to eliminate deforestation and human rights abuses, the campaign shows that communities are still suffering the impacts of having their traditional forests and lands seized to make way for plantations. Promises to end deforestation and to address the now decades-old land rights conflict[s] are all well and good, but the fact of the matter is that we have seen little change on the ground so far, RAN Senior Forest Campaigner Brihannala Morgan said in a statement. RAN said it chose to focus its campaign on APP and TPL because of the outsized role they play in land conflicts in the provinces of Jambi and North Sumatra. Since 2013, APP, the biggest pulp and paper producer in Indonesia and China, has committed to eliminating forest destruction, human rights abuses and clearing peat from its supply chain. RAN says the commitment was a welcome move from a company with a history of land and human rights abuses, and has resulted in progress, including the end of

NEW YORK The Wallace Global Fund awarded the inaugural Henry A.

In addition to the $250,000 prize, the Tribe will receive up to a $1 million investment from the Wallace Global Fund to support its transition toward fossil fuel independence.

Institute of American Indian Arts Faculty Member & Renowned Poet James Thomas Stevens Reaches Out to Inmates of New Mexico State Penitentiary "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

The IAIA Health and Wellness Trail

Published June 9, 2017 

Five Incarcerated Poets Have their Works Displayed on the IAIA Campus

SANTA FE  IAIA Associate Professor of Creative Writing James Thomas Stevens (Akwesasne Mohawk), recently contacted IAIA alumna Roseanna Andrade (Mexica/Nahua) 16, to participate in one of IAIAs community outreach programs the collection of poems that are posted on the IAIA Health and Wellness Trail. As the poetry instructor in the Creative Writing Program, Stevens is responsible for collecting original poems from invited groups and posting them in wooden display posts along the IAIA Health and Wellness trail, utilized by IAIA students, staff, faculty, and members of the surrounding community. In the past, works from IAIA undergrad writers, graduate students, and students from local Native high schools were utilized; but Stevens recognized that not all writers come from educational institutions. In an effort to reach out to other groups, he wrote to Andrade and requested poems for display on the trail from April 1, 2017 through August 1 2017.

Andrade was recently hired to work in the library at the New Mexico State Penitentiary, and Stevens felt that there was an opportunity to invite writers in the incarcerated community to contribute poems. The Mission Statement at the Institute of American Indian Arts is To empower creativity and leadership in Native arts and culture through higher education, lifelong learning, and outreach, and Stevens felt this was the perfect opportunity to put that into a practical application.

Andrade received her Associates Degree in Native American Studies and Bachelor of Arts Degree in Indigenous Liberal Studies from IAIA. During her time at the school, she worked in the library and according to her, my passion for books and literacy led me to this new position, providing library services for the community at PNM. As the prison librarian at PNM, I provided a program which inspired positive, creative self-expression that inmates could share with others in the larger community.

Tribal trust lands represent treaties and other agreements that are the Supreme Law of the Land and the backbone that built the United States.

The Business Committee stated, Trying to reform the IRA and Indian trust lands is asking the wrong question.  We need economic development laws and policies that work on Indian trust landsnot private lands.

Working hand-in-hand, Congress and the administration appear to be laying the groundwork to question the significance and value of Indian trust lands and the IRA.  History stands in their way.

A recent House Committee on Natural Resources Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations entitled Examining Impacts of Federal Natural Resources Laws Gone Astray attempted to fill the Congressional Record with baseless claims.  A committee staff memorandum and witness testimony claimed that there are no limits on Interior authority to take land into trust for tribes and created a false conflict between tribes and neighboring communities.  This, from the same Committee that also called allotment a humane policy.

The Business Committee stated, After entering into treaties and agreements our lands and resources were again under attack from federal allotment laws and policies.  The IRA saved us from further land loss. Many of the problems we face today come from allotment, including, the loss of lands and resources and the unmanageable checker boarding of our reservation. Restoration of lands under the IRA needs more support from Congress and the Administration not less.

The IRA has long been recognized for ending the Federal governments disastrous allotment laws and policies.  Beginning with the General Allotment Act in 1887 Indian-held land decreased from about 138 million acres to 48 million in 1934.  In addition to the loss of land and...

The Difference Between an Empath, a Sympath and One Who Practices Compassion "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There is a difference in the way certain people modulate frequencies and there are so many variations that its difficult to put labels on any of them. 

Empaths are truly in an in-between and special stage of development. But how do they differ from sympaths and those who practice compassion?

Empaths, a those with more sensitive abilities to apprehend the mental or emotional states of others. Very sensitive empaths can experience empathy burnout as well as many other conditions.

They are in between sympaths and others who practice compassion. Sympaths relate to the pity and sorrow of other's misfortunes, but have no real need to express beyond that.

Ocean City, Maryland and Topfreedom "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Ocean City 3Ocean City, Maryland, Summer 2016. One of the 30 or so times Ive gone bare-chested in Ocean City in the last three summers, without arrest or police interaction.

 

Anticipating increased visitorship here thanks to another round of local media attention that escalated to an interview with the Washington Post this afternoon, I offer this update.

Ten months ago, the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland accepted a request to issue an opinion on the legality of female bare-chestedness from the Worcester County States Attorney.  Worcester County is where the beaches of Ocean City, Maryland, Assateague State Park and Assateague National Seashore are situated.  The States Attorney and I had exchanged several E-mails and phone calls before he made his request in August, 2016.

This opinion is a big deal because it will carry the weight of the top attorney for the governments of Maryland.

The original opinion request was worded to ask if female toplessness was legal in Maryland, but I think because it obviously is, at some point the wording on the opinion request was changed to examine whether a local ordinance that treated genders differently wou...

Nevada Judge Rules Against Seizure of Shoars Baby Baby Returned Home to Parents "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Shoars baby HOME

Baby Nytallieya is HOME! Photo taken from Facebook Live by Merissa Hamilton.

by Health Impact News/MedicalKidnap.com Staff

Tabitha and Jeff Shoars are celebrating that their youngest child, 10 month old Nytallieya, is back home after being seized by Nevada Child Protective Services just after noon on Monday, June 5, 2017.

The baby was taken from their Las Vegas home after Arizona Department of Child Safety social workers sent a report to Nevada CPS alleging that the Shoars left the child with an unsafe caregiver.

The Shoars disputed that claim, saying that the caregiver to whom Arizona DCS refers is someone that they feel quite confident about a retired police officer and his wife.

See story of Nytallieyas seizure:

Arizona Convinces Nevada CPS to Kidnap Shoars Baby Despite No Imminent Danger

Arizona DCS social workers convinced social workers in Nevada that Tabitha and Jeff had diminished caregiver protective capacities because they alleged that the Shoars left their children in Arizona with a babysitter who DCS accuses of killing the Shoars daughter Khloe.

Based on this inaccurate assessment, DCS concluded that the babysitter chosen by Tabitha and Jeff Shoars in Nevada was an unsafe caregiver. They passed this accusation on to Nevada CPS as fact, when in truth, it was never a fact.

The babysitter in question was questioned in connection with Khloes death, but never charged. The official coroners report stated that the cause of death was undetermined, and it was determined by police in Arizona that no crime had been committed.

There is a highly significant linear dose-response relationship between circulating 25-OH-D levels and overall survival in patients with breast cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Integr Cancer Ther. 2017 May 1:1534735417712007. Epub 2017 May 1. PMID: 28589744 Abstract Title:  Circulating Vitamin D and Overall Survival in Breast Cancer Patients: A Dose-Response Meta-Analysis of Cohort Studies. Abstract:  Studies have shown that vitamin D could have a role in breast cancer survival; however, the evidence of the relationship between patients' vitamin D levels and their survival has been inconsistent. This meta-analysis explores possible dose-response relationships between vitamin D levels and overall survival by allowing for differences in vitamin D levels among populations of the various studies. Studies relating vitamin D (25-OH-D [25-hydroxyvitamin D]) levels in breast cancer patients with their survival were identified by searching PubMed and Embase. A pooled HR (hazard ratio) comparing the highest with the lowest category of circulating 25-OH-D levels were synthesized using the Mantel-Haenszel method under a fixed-effects model. A two-stage fixed-effects dose-response model including both linear (a log-linear dose-response regression) and nonlinear (a restricted cubic spline regression) models were used to further explore possible dose-response relationships. Six studies with a total number of 5984 patients were identified. A pooled HR comparing the highest with the lowest category of circulating 25-OH-D levels under a fixed-effects model was 0.67 (95% confidence interval = 0.56-0.79, P

Vitamin D supplementation reduced anti-dsDNA positivity on systemic lupus erythematosus and could possibly reduce rheumatoid arthritis recurrence. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Medicine (Baltimore). 2017 Jun ;96(23):e7024. PMID: 28591033 Abstract Title:  Vitamin D supplementation and disease activity in patients with immune-mediated rheumatic diseases: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Vitamin D serum levels and the presence and activity of rheumatic conditions have been associated. However, many studies are merely observational, and the existent randomized clinical trials were never systematically analyzed. Therefore, this study aims to provide a systematic review and meta-analysis of such a topic.METHODS: MEDLINE, EMBASE, LILACS, COCHRANE, and CINAHL were explored to identify randomized trials that investigated clinical repercussions of vitamin D (or analogs) supplementation for at least 3 months in rheumatic diseases. Standardized clinical and/or laboratorial outcomes related to disease activity were analyzed according to each disease before and after supplementation.RESULTS: Database searches rendered 668 results; 9 were included-5 on rheumatoid arthritis, 3 on systemic lupus erythematosus, and 1 on systemic sclerosis. Seven of the studies were meta-analyzed. After vitamin D supplementation, rheumatoid arthritis recurrence decreased; however, not significantly (risk difference=-0.10, 95% CI=-0.21, 0.00, P=.05). No statistical significance was observed regarding visual analog scale (mean difference=2.79, 95% CI=-1.87, 7.44, P=.24) and disease activity score28 (mean difference=-0.31, 95% CI=-0.86, 0.25, P=.28). Regarding systemic lupus erythematosus, anti-dsDNA positivity was significantly reduced (risk difference=-0.10, 95% CI=-0.18, -0.03; P=.005).CONCLUSION: Vitamin D supplementation reduced anti-dsDNA positivity on systemic lupus erythematosus and could possibly reduce rheumatoid arthritis recurrence, although novel randomized clinical trials are needed to confirm and extend the benefits of this hormone in immune-mediated rheumatic diseases.

Shadow Brokers (Hacktivists) are Exposing the Cabal's Cashless Society Scam "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"



Source: Giza Death Star | by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell

Which brings me to my second reason for skepticism: the integrity of cyber systems in general. Why anyone would trust such a system is beyond me, especially when, if one wants to turn the clock back a bit to the 1980s, there were already stories circulating about computers being sold with "clipper chips" that allowed your local not-so-friendly three-letter-agencies access to every electronic communication. Then, of course, came the Inslaw-PROMIS scandals of the late 1980s, and we were off and running.

Now, in that context, consider the following article by Rich Haridy - a very intriguing article from several points of view - that was shared by Mr. J.K.:

Shadow Brokers hacking group reveals bizarre data dump subscription plan

Several things caught my eye in this article, and we'd be here for days if I were to blog about all of them, but I want to draw attention to the first thing that really leaped off the page:

The Shadow Brokers first appeared in August 2016, announcing an auction to sell off a set of security exploits the group purportedly stole from the NSA. After the auction failed to reach the absurd asking price of one million bitcoins, the group publicly released four sets of exploits over the following months. One of those exploits contained the now infamous EternalBlue vulnerability that underpinned the recent WannaCry attack.

Since the WannaCry outbreak, the Shadow Brokers have been threatening to release more NSA hacking tools, and in early May the group published a blog post in broken English ominously announcing a bizarre subscription model offering members a monthly haul of data.

The group described it as a, "new monthly subscription model. Is being like wine of month club. Each month peoples can be paying membership fee, then getting members only data dump each month. What members doing with data after is up to members."

Infrared radiation treatment could be considered as an alternative monotherapy and a useful adjunctive to surgical lymphedema procedures. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Lasers Med Sci. 2017 Apr ;32(3):485-494. Epub 2017 Jan 26. PMID: 28127644 Abstract Title:  Efficacy and safety of far infrared radiation in lymphedema treatment: clinical evaluation and laboratory analysis. Abstract:  Swelling is the most common symptom of extremities lymphedema. Clinical evaluation and laboratory analysis were conducted after far infrared radiation (FIR) treatment on the main four components of lymphedema: fluid, fat, protein, and hyaluronan. Far infrared radiation is a kind of hyperthermia therapy with several and additional benefits as well as promoting microcirculation flow and improving collateral lymph circumfluence. Although FIR therapy has been applied for several years on thousands of lymphedema patients, there are still few studies that have reported the biological effects of FIR on lymphatic tissue. In this research, we investigate the effects of far infrared rays on the major components of lymphatic tissue. Then, we explore the effectiveness and safety of FIR as a promising treatment modality of lymphedema. A total of 32 patients affected by lymphedema in stage II and III were treated between January 2015 and January 2016 at our department. After therapy, a significant decrease of limb circumference measurements was noted and improving of quality of life was registered. Laboratory examination showed the treatment can also decrease the deposition of fluid, fat, hyaluronan, and protein, improving the swelling condition. We believe FIR treatment could be considered as both an alternative monotherapy and a useful adjunctive to the conservative or surgical lymphedema procedures. Furthermore, the real and significant biological effects of FIR represent possible future applications in wide range of the medical field.

Burn Them and Their Families: As Islamic State Crumbles, Vigilantes Are Running Amok in Iraq "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

isis-promo-pic

Its hard to appreciate the effect ISIS has had on ordinary Iraqis and Syrians who wanted nothing to do with the terror group. There are cities in these countries that have been ruled by these monsters for several years. Monsters whose cruelty and depravity knows no bounds. Most people in the West cant imagine what that must be like, because the vast majority of us have never lived under those conditions.

So what does happens to people who have been living under ISIS for so long?

Well, try to imagine what you would do if a bunch of lunatics had been running your community for several years. Imagine if they had cut you off from the outside world, tortured and killed family members and neighbors, sold female relatives into sexual slavery, and indoctrinated your children.

Some people manage to move on with their lives after those conditions pass. Others do not. In Iraq for instance, there are now vigilante groups that have risen in the wake of the Islamic States collapse, and theyre targeting members of ISIS, as well as their families.

Eleven suspected jihadists who were recently found blindfolded, bound and shot to death on the side of the road 20 miles south of Mosul are some of the victims of the group, which on its Facebook page tells supporters to burn the families and homes of ISIS members.

The vigilante group, which has dubbed themselves the Hammam al-Alil Revolution, created a Facebook group to launch revenge on ISIS members in May. It now has 650 members.

Soon we will start our operation, we are now locating Deash families, read the first post on the page from May 28. We will make them regret joining. Good luck everyone, it signs off.

Father of Famous Aleppo Boy Just Exposed How the US & White Helmets Lied to the World "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Covered in dust and bruises with hair disheveled from having survived a blast, the blood beginning to crust over half his face, a seeming placidity hands anchored on his legs, all-but unmoving could not mask the stoic trauma in little Omran Daqneeshs eyes.

Gazing hauntingly from the back of an ambulance in Aleppo in August 2016, Omrans image snared the heartstrings of the world even those previously hardened to the hopelessly tangled morass in Syria transmogrifying into a single human form the suffering of innocent Syrians at the whims of entire nation-states embroiled in proxy war upon war in the name of political squabbles.

But, while the West took up Omrans cause, Westerners did so under the pretense the child had been bloodied by an airstrike or missile launched by the forces of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad or their allies from Russia his image rekindling the fire of contention propaganda designed to support the United States goal of regime change.

But it was a lie from mass medias parroted claims the boy had escaped an airstrike within an inch of his life, to bandages eventually wrapped around Omrans head virtually none of the narrative stemming from the starkly persistent image bore the weight of truth.

This study provides evidence for the beneficial effects of far-infrared therapy exposure in a model of skin photoaging. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2017 ;12(3):e0174042. Epub 2017 Mar 16. PMID: 28301572 Abstract Title:  Far-infrared suppresses skin photoaging in ultraviolet B-exposed fibroblasts and hairless mice. Abstract:  Ultraviolet (UV) induces skin photoaging, which is characterized by thickening, wrinkling, pigmentation, and dryness. Collagen, which is one of the main building blocks of human skin, is regulated by collagen synthesis and collagen breakdown. Autophagy was found to block the epidermal hyperproliferative response to UVB and may play a crucial role in preventing skin photoaging. In the present study, we investigated whether far-infrared (FIR) therapy can inhibit skin photoaging via UVB irradiation in NIH 3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblasts and SKH-1 hairless mice. We found that FIR treatment significantly increased procollagen type I through the induction of the TGF-/Smad axis. Furthermore, UVB significantly enhanced the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) and MMP-9. FIR inhibited UVB-induced MMP-1 and MMP-9. Treatment with FIR reversed UVB-decreased type I collagen. In addition, FIR induced autophagy by inhibiting the Akt/mTOR signaling pathway.In UVB-induced skin photoaging in a hairless mouse model, FIR treatment resulted in decreased skin thickness in UVB irradiated mice and inhibited the degradation of collagen fibers. Moreover, FIR can increase procollagen type I via the inhibition of MMP-9 and induction of TGF- in skin tissues. Therefore, our study provides evidence for the beneficial effects of FIR exposure in a model of skin photoaging.

High Fructose Corn Syrup Has Been Quietly, Deceitfully Renamed "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

fructose-678x381

High fructose corn syrup is a killer. Since humans started consuming it, obesity rates have more than tripled and diabetes incidence has increased more than seven fold. Even when used in moderation it is a major cause of heart disease, obesity, cancer, dementia, liver failure, tooth decay, and more.

So what does the FDA do about this silent killer? It allows food producers to change the name of the infamous sweeter in order to trick consumers into thinking they are not eating high fructose corn syrup.

Thats right, high fructose corn syrup now goes by a new, deceitful name Natural Sweetener designed to trick customers into making ill-informed choices that will impact on their health.

Consumers are finally catching on to the fact that what we put in our mouths effects our waistline as well as our health. Since consumers have become much smarter and finally waking up to these realities, they are demanding healthier food choices. Every food company is smearing 100% natural on every box of anything regardless of whats inside the box.

5 Fundamental Truths Even The Most Awake People Forget "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Simple Capacity

To find Meaning with a capital M in life can be a daunting task. It is not a surprise that in the hectic world today, even with all the connectedness, we all feel even more disconnected and lonelier than at any point in the past. But there are some truths which we make for ourselves. They become little moments in the sun to make this journey called life a bit bearable. Unfortunately even the most awake of us often get overwhelmed by the tedium that is modern living and forget these little things that could make a huge difference to how we see our lives and inspire us to hang in there no matter how tough the going gets.

This one life is all you get, as far as anyone can truly say. As Heidegger wisely noted Death is the most certain possibility. Going with the flow of events has its advantages but it compares poorly to taking a step back to look at your life. It is after all your life and understanding it deeply is something you owe yourself. Sometimes the road ahead is staring you right in the face and we hope the five little reminders we give you in this article will make you confront your own realities to your benefit.


1. Failures really are the pillars of Success

Success comes on the back of years of frustration and failure. As clichd as it sounds, it is a fact that the experience gained from trying and failing may be worth more than the complacency which often stalks the successful. Failure teaches you to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and have a go again. The pain you feel from your failures is part of the process and an essential one at that. Trust me if you havent encountered any obstacles on your chosen path you most definitely are doing something wrong. Like light and shadow success and failure cannot exist without each other.

Scientists Discover Bacteria That Has Evolved To Eat Plastic In The Oceans "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Amelia Kinney; True Activist

Research indicates bacteria have evolved to consume PET plastic.

Its no secret that plastic pollution is one of the greatest challenges of modern society. In fact, its almost impossible to go a day without hearing about the grave consequences of throwaway culture. Thankfully, research indicates there may be a glimmer of hope.

Polyethylene terephthalate, known as PET, is one of the most common types of plastic produced. It accounts for almost 30% of water bottle production worldwide. Scientists in Japan have discovered a species of bacteria using PET as its primary food source, and these bacteria have actually made strides in cleaning up the ocean.

Studies indicate Although the presence of vast amounts of plastic in the open ocean has generated great concern due to its potential ecological consequences, recent studies reveal that its measured abundance is much smaller than expected. The paradox is partially attributed to evolved set of organisms (the consumers) capable of degrading [plastic].

The Entire Globalist System is Falling Apart Harley Schlanger ~ SGTreport.com "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

It has never been more evident that the entire globalist system is falling apart. While James Comey hung himself in the public square on Thursday, it was again revealed that the official mainstream media narrative about the Russians hacking the US election is filled with more holes than Swiss cheese, and the strategy to use these overt LIES to destroy Trump has only served to destroy the mainstream mockingbird liars themselves.

There is no better example of this fact than the disastrous Megyn Kelly interview with Vladimir Putin. The Russian statesman absolutely destroyed the blonde haired mockingbird, much to the amusement of the audience watching. But as noted in this interview, the Russian hacking narrative has had a multi-fold purpose.

As Harley Schlanger explains, Its these same networks of the deep state that support terrorism, that are the ones that are trying to keep Trump from working with Putin (to prevent world war 3).

This must listen interview helps to reveal the crumbling deep state narratives and the globalist plan, which Harley says is now falling apart at the seams.

Funan a Universidad de Concepcin por favorecer el negocio forestal "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Originalmente publicado por Observatorio de Conflictos Ambientales (OLCA)

Organizaciones sociales, medioambientales y de estudiantes realizaron una manifestacin al interior de la Universidad de Concepcin (UdeC), a quien acusan de favorecer los intereses de la industria forestal, en el marco de la realizacin del Congreso de Biotecnologa de rboles de la Unin Internacional de Organizaciones de Investigacin Forestal (IUFRO), que promueve la transgenia, y que busca facilitar procesos industriales extractivistas, bajo la fachada de una actividad cientfica neutral.

En un recorrido por la UdeC, las organizaciones se detuvieron afuera de las oficinas de la rectora, donde denunciaron mediante discursos y consignas los impactos socioambientales de las plantaciones de monocultivos para las comunidades, en particular mapuche y campesinas; y cuestionaron la participacin que tiene la Universidad con distintos rubros extractivistas, y especficamente con la industria forestal.

Con megfono en mano, dirigentes sociales interpelaron a los acadmicos e investigadores a poner la ciencia al servicio de las comunidades.

El Presidente de la Federacin de Estudiantes de la Universidad de Concepcin, Rodrigo Castillo Jofr, dijo que esta semana hemos realizado protestas, encuentros y foros en rechazo al modelo forestal y las terribles consecuencias en la destruccin de los ecosistemas y en el empeoramiento de la calidad de vida de las comunidades.

Asimismo, como estudiantes manifestamos nuestra preocupacin y rechazo al actuar de la UdeC que se ha alejado del espritu con el que se cre: el de generar conocimiento en post de mejorar la calidad de vida de la gente del sur de Chile, en particular de la regin del Bo Bo. Agreg que la Universidad desarrolla investigaciones cientficas que apuntan a todo lo contrario, a favor de grandes empresas, como Arauco y Mininco, que lucran a costa de la erosin de los suelos y de la provocacin de riesgos de incendios forestales.

Como estudiantes no nos podemos quedar al margen y debemos manifestarnos en conjun...

Far infrared radiation therapy provides an effective treatment modality for patients with chronic lymphedema. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Arch Gynecol Obstet. 2017 Jun ;295(6):1441-1450. Epub 2017 Apr 22. PMID: 28434105 Abstract Title:  Far-infrared ray for treating chronic lower extremity lymphedema with dermatolymphangioadenitis: a postoperative complication of gynecological tumor resection. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Lower extremity lymphedema is regarded as a relatively common postoperative complication and is often accompanied with dermatolymphangioadenitis (DLA). This study combines clinical assessment and laboratory investigation to explore therapeutic effects of far-infrared radiation (FIR) therapy for chronic lower extremity lymphedema accompanied with DLA, occurring after gynecological tumor resection.METHODS: Patients who met inclusion and exclusion criteria would be enrolled. They received regular sessions using the FIR therapy machine over the 4-week treatment course. Clinical and laboratory outcome measures were carried out before and after treatment. Clinical outcome measures included DLA seizure frequency (episodes/year), patients' subjective feedback for lymphedema-related symptoms and quality of life (QOL). Laboratory outcome measures included bacterial cultures and concentrations of inflammatory cytokines: IL-1, IL-2, IL-4, IL-10, IL-12, IL-18, TNF-, TNF-, caspase-1 and INF-, detected in serum and local lymphedema tissue fluid samples using protein microarray and ELISA.RESULTS: Between 2012 and 2016, a total of 120 female patients were screened for study enrollment. Sixty-four recruited patients underwent clinical evaluation both before FIR radiation therapy and 1 year after a single course of FIR radiation therapy. Eleven patients (17.2%), randomly chosen from the study group, underwent additional laboratory analysis of blood and local lymphedema tissue fluid samples. The frequency of DLA decreased following treatment (p

Uncovering One of the Worst Crimes in History: Industrial Farming & The Wake of Humanitys Future "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Ed. note: From my perspective, placing our focus on barbaric factory farming practices is far more important than so much focusing on politics and full disclosure. Because, the barbaric conditions billions of sentient beings suffer thru on a daily basis, serves to keep the vibration of the planet in lower density.

When humans free all animals in indentured servitude, then we will move forward towards ascension in leaps and bounds. The planet and all her creatures ascends with us, and were not going anywhere until we free our brothers and sisters from the nature kingdom. We have got to get our priorities straight.

So many people misplace their focus in directions which have absolutely no impact on things that are important to OUR REALITY BUBBLES IN the NOW. I honestly care less about whats happening in the Antarctic, on Mars, on the moon or in some distant future now moment when all is revealed. And I call BS on all of it.

Why? Because it keeps the majority of people focused on issues which have absolutely nothing to do with finding solutions for environmental destruction and the stripping of earths resources, on a daily basis. It doesnt help the billions of animals suffering daily to provide sustenance for humans. It doesnt feed the millions of starving people who are dying NOW for lack of food, water and adequate shelter.

Arghhham getting so fed up with all of it, There are tooo many people chasing matters of folly and empty distractions, when our world is suffocating from heart-space neglect.

We all need to work together in unity to co-create solutions to these very basic principles, ones which sustain and promote life, and assist our EARTH Mother on her journey toward ascension with ALL her children its not just about us. Blessings, {~A~}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The treatment of industrially farmed animals is one of the most ethically questionable practices of our times.

As tens of billions of animals, each sentient through the complexity of their social and emotional nature, face life and death on the production line we are being beckoned towards a different way.

Far infrared ray treatment should be considered as feasible and safe for the treatment of breast cancer related lymphedema patients. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Photochem Photobiol B. 2017 Jul ;172:95-101. Epub 2017 May 11. PMID: 28535427 Abstract Title:  Far infrared ray (FIR) therapy: An effective and oncological safe treatment modality for breast cancer related lymphedema. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: The incidence of breast cancer related lymphedema is approximately 5%. Far infrared ray (FIR) treatment can potentially reduce fluid volume and extremity circumference as well as the frequency of dermato-lymphangitis (DLA). However, there is no published data on the oncological safety of FIR and the potential for activation of any residual breast cancer cells. The aim of this study is to investigate the safety of far infrared ray (FIR) treatment of postmastectomy lymphedema, clinically and in vitro.METHODS: Patients who underwent mastectomy more than 5years ago complicated by upper extremity lymphedema for more than 1year were included. The enrolled patients were divided into an FIR treatment group and a control group (conservative treatment using bandage compression). Outcome measures included tumor markers (CA153, CA125), ultrasonography of relevant structures and monitoring for adverse reactions 1year after treatment. For the in vitro part of the study, the effects of FIR on human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines (MCF7, MDA-MB231) compared to the effects of FIR on human dermal fibroblasts as a control were considered. The viability, proliferation, cell cycle and apoptotic statistics of the adenocarcinoma and human dermal fibroblast cell lines were analyzed and compared.RESULTS: Results demonstrated that after treatment with FIR, tumor marker (CA153, CA125) concentrations in both the FIR and control groups were not elevated. There was no statistically significant difference between FIR and control group marker expression (p>0.05). Furthermore, no patients were diagnosed with lymphadenectasis or newly enlarged lymph nodes in these two groups. Importantly, there were no adverse events in either group. The in vitro experiment indicated that FIR radiation does not affect viability, proliferation, cell cycle and apoptosis of fibroblasts, MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cells.CONCLUSIONS: FIR should be considered as feasible and safe for the treatment of breast cancer related lymphedema patients 5years after mastectomy. FIR does not promote recurrence or metastasis of breast cancer and is a well-tolerated therapy with no adverse reactions.

Three out of the seven patients reported lower frequency and severity of Raynaud attacks. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Dermatol Monatsschr. 1990 ;176(11):683-6. PMID: 2083608 Abstract Title:  [Mild infrared A hyperthermia in treatment of systemic scleroderma]. Abstract:  Seven female systemic sclerosis patients (all from acrosclerosis type, with intestinal involvement, and marked Raynaud phenomenon) were treated with infrared A whole body irradiations (wavelengths between 800 and 1,400 nm, 12 W/dm2 maximally). The single exposure lasted for 30 minutes and resulted in an 0.9 degrees C rise of central body temperature. Acral skin rewarming became regular immediately after irradiation and kept improved, as compared with pre-treatment values, for at least 18 weeks. All the patients told about a comfortable feeling of warmth after each treatment lasting for one two days. Three out of the seven reported lower frequency and severity of Raynaud attacks.

Far-infrared rays have beneficialeffects on reproduction, growth, behaviour and some physiological parameters in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  In Vivo. 2000 Mar-Apr;14(2):321-6. PMID: 10836204 Abstract Title:  Effects of far-infrared ray on reproduction, growth, behaviour and some physiological parameters in mice. Abstract:  The effects of chronic exposure to far-infrared ray (FIR) on reproduction, growth, behaviour, survival time and some related parameters were examined in SHN mice. The reproductive parameters differed slightly between the females on the normal racks and those on the FIR racks, which emitted FIR from the ceiling. The age and body weight on the day of vaginal opening was lower in the experimental mice born and maintained on the FIR rack than in the control on the normal rack. In both sexes, the levels of urinary components in the experimental group was significantly higher than the control at 6-7 months of age. Spontaneous motor activity of females during the light and dark phases were higher and lower, respectively, in the experimental group than the control. The survival rate was significantly higher in the experimental group than the control. These findings suggest that FIR has 'normalization effects' on the organisms.

Widening earth crack spreads to 5 km in Manipur, India "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Note: Earth cracks are Pachamamas stretch-marks, evidence she is expanding

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Kangpokpi earth crack spreads to 5 Kms

The earth crack at Kalikhola area in Kangpokpi district has already affected a stretch of 5 Km radius approximately with the fissure widening every passing hour while the more than 250 victims sheltered at the temporary relief camp are facing water and power shortage apart from other numerous difficulties.

While the earth fissure at Kalikhola area has widened today one house near the PMGSY road collapsed this morning while more paddy fields and huge trees have caved in and more land have slid down.

Two huge water bodies have been formed near Kalikhola village today while one electric post was also badly damaged.

The origin of the earth fissure is below J Songtun village and it slid down towards Kalikhola village developing larger fissure in the areas and has expanded to a radius of 5 Km approximately now.

The PMGSY road connecting IT road and Kalapahar via Makuli has also slid down about 300 metres from the original site.

All water pipelines have been badly damaged.

All the villagers of Kalikhola have been evacuated but many properties are yet to be removed as the villagers have to bear the expenses of moving their properties.

Interestingly, the funds which have been sought by the district administration for disaster management is reportedly yet to be received till today.

J Songtun village situated above Kalikhola village is in a more dangerous position in case a massive landslide occurs as it can be easily swept away.

Meanwhile, affected victims sheltered at the relief camp are facing various difficulties including shortage of drinking water and el...

My Grandma Is Not A Hippie "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Caption: My grandmother, Ida Stone, on a family vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC; at my wedding in 1988; on another family vacation with her husband and children; on her high school graduation day; with my son; and the log house she was born in on June 8, 1918.

An Early Imprint Becomes A Mother (of a) Quest

Today is my paternal grandmothers 99th birthday. On June 8, 1918, Ida Dorothy Hodges was born in a log house (not cabin, or she will correct you) in a hollow at the bottom of a mountain in Surry County, North Carolina.  Except for a few summers, she lived in this well-loved family home until she married my grandfather, Walter Cecil Stone, at twenty.  Ive heard whispered accounts at family gatherings of how she inserted the number 21 into her wedding shoe so as not to be telling a lie when asked if she was over 21 in order to marry across the state line in Virginia but were not supposed to know this story, so just forget I mentioned it.

In the conscious parenting world, and now prenatal neuroscience, we talk of early imprints, often meaning early experiences that leave negative and draining neurological marks, making us vulnerable to modern stresses and chronic illnesses.  But there are other imprints we receive as well from our direct biological parents, caregivers and even our unknown ancestors (see Mark Wolynns book, It Didnt Start With You).

I credit my nearly 20-year Mother (of a) Quest for all things holistic and sustainable to the early imprint of visiting my grandmothers home.  During high holy days, like Christmas and Easter, my father would scoop my brother and I out of our beds at four a.m., tuck us into the roomy back seat of our Ford Fairlane with pillows and blankets, sometimes never waking us up, before setting out for the seven or eight-hour journey from the coast of Virginia to the mountains at the western end of North Carolina.

When my brother and I arrived, we were surrounded by rolling farm land and an extended family who ate together, sang together, and shared our stories together, especially those about our pioneering ancestors listed in reverently held books like The Stones of Surry, or teasing tales like when my fathers childhood mule, Brownie, would run away from him, tour the mountain, and come back after chores but in time for dinner.

Over time, this childhood imprint...

Promotive effects of far-infrared ray on full-thickness skin wound healing in rats. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Biol Med (Maywood). 2003 Jun ;228(6):724-9. PMID: 12773705 Abstract Title:  Promotive effects of far-infrared ray on full-thickness skin wound healing in rats. Abstract:  The biological effects of far-infrared ray (FIR) on whole organisms remain poorly understood. The aim of our study was to investigate not only the hyperthermic effect of the FIR irradiation, but also the biological effects of FIR on wound healing. To evaluate the effect of FIR on a skin wound site, the speed of full-thickness skin wound healing was compared among groups with and without FIR using a rat model. We measured the skin wound area, skin blood flow, and skin temperature before and during FIR irradiation, and we performed histological inspection. Wound healing was significantly more rapid with than without FIR. Skin blood flow and skin temperature did not change significantly before or during FIR irradiation. Histological findings revealed greater collagen regeneration and infiltration of fibroblasts that expressed transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) in wounds in the FIR group than in the group without FIR. Stimulation of the secretion of TGF-beta1 or the activation of fibroblasts may be considered as a possible mechanisms for the promotive effect of FIR on wound healing independent of skin blood flow and skin temperature.

Ayurvedic Food For A Healthy Pregnancy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

I get lots of emails from readers of my Postpartum Recipe Book asking if the recipes are suitable for pregnancy. But before I answer Ill start with my golden rule

Love Conquers All

Beyond basic health and safety in pregnancy I dont think you should get yourself stressed about about detailed diets and rules. Stress can reduce oxytocin, which is the love and bonding hormone.  In my opinion the most important thing during your pregnancy is to be happy and calm. If Ayurveda is stressing you out, then let it go!

If you are still reading then I am assuming that Ayurveda brings you peace an joy - yay! Me too :)

Ayurveda is based on metabolic constitutions. The basic idea is that every one has a different body type and there arent any one-size-fits-all solutions. Your type - called dosha - has two aspects. One is prakruti which is your fixed nature, like your genes, it stays with you for life. The other is vikruti, which is more environmental and changes over time.

Your vikruti is affected by pregnancy and postpartum, so your state of imbalance, and therefore your nutritional needs, will change during these stages.

Newborn Mothers are dry, light and cold, and to balance those elements their food needs to be warm, moist and grounding. All of the recipes in Nourishing Newborn Mothers are designed with this in mind.

Pregnant women, on the other hand, are generally hot, heavy and wet.

Newborn Mothers also have much higher calorie needs than pregnant women - yes breastfeeding uses much more energy than being pregnant!! No wonder you are so freaking hungry and tired!!!

To further complicate things, each trimester your baby and your body changes significantly.

If you do want to sample some of the postpartum recipe from my book during your pregnancy here are some of my suggestions for adapting them:

  • Reduce or omit the ghee, especially later in pregnancy.
  • Avoid or reduce spices including garlic, fennel, asafoetida, fenugreek, especially earlier in pregnancy.
  • During pregnancy you can tolerate a lot more raw food than during postpartum.
  • Reduce sugar and salt during pregnancy compared to postpartum.

A combination of multidisciplinary treatment and repeated thermal therapy may be a promising method for treatment of chronic pain. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Psychother Psychosom. 2005 ;74(5):288-94. PMID: 16088266 Abstract Title:  The effects of repeated thermal therapy for patients with chronic pain. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: It has been reported that local thermal therapy with a hot pack or paraffin relieves pain. We hypothesized that systemic warming may decrease pain and improve the outcomes in patients with chronic pain. The purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of systemic thermal therapy in patients with chronic pain.METHODS: Group A (n = 24) patients with chronic pain were treated by a multidisciplinary treatment including cognitive behavioral therapy, rehabilitation, and exercise therapy, whereas group B (n = 22) patients were treated by a combination of multidisciplinary treatment and repeated thermal therapy. A far-infrared ray dry sauna therapy and post-sauna warming were performed once a day for 4 weeks during hospitalization. We investigated the improvements in subjective symptoms, the number of pain behavior after treatment and outcomes 2 years after discharge.RESULTS: The visual analog pain score, number of pain behavior, self-rating depression scale, and anger score significantly decreased after treatment in both groups. After treatment, the number of pain behavior was slightly smaller (p = 0.07) and anger score was significantly lower in group B than those in group A (p = 0.05). Two years after treatment, 17 patients (77%) in group B returned to work compared with 12 patients (50%) in group A (p

PMID:  J Psychosom Res. 2005 Apr ;58(4):383-7. PMID: 15992574 Abstract Title:  The effects of repeated thermal therapy for two patients with chronic fatigue syndrome. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: This paper describes the successful treatment of two patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) using repeated thermal therapy.METHODS: Two patients with CFS underwent treatment with prednisolone (PSL), with no satisfactory effect. They were subjected to thermal therapy that consisted of a far-infrared ray dry sauna at 60 degrees C and postsauna warming. The therapy was performed once a day, for a total of 35 sessions. After discharge, these subjects continued the therapy once or twice a week on an outpatient basis for 1 year.RESULTS: Symptoms such as fatigue, pain, sleep disturbance, and low-grade fever were dramatically improved after 15 to 25 sessions of thermal therapy. Although PSL administration was discontinued, the subjects showed no relapse or exacerbation of symptoms during the first year after discharge. The patients became socially rehabilitated 6 months after discharge.CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that repeated thermal therapy might be a promising method for the treatment of CFS.

PMID:  Nihon Rinsho. 2007 Jun ;65(6):1093-8. PMID: 17561703 Abstract Title:  [A new treatment: thermal therapy for chronic fatigue syndrome]. Abstract:  Thermal therapy using far-infrared ray dry sauna was performed for patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Symptoms such as fatigue, pain, and low-grade fever were dramatically improved on two patients. And prednisolone administration was discontinued and became socially rehabilitated 6 months after discharge. On other 11 patients with CFS, physical symptoms such as fatigue and pain improved, too. Furthermore, we reported that repeated thermal therapy had relaxation effect and diminishes appetite loss and subjective complaints in mildly depressed patients. These results suggest that repeated thermal therapy may be a promising method for the treatment of CFS.

Whole-body hyperthermia has beneficial effects on the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours in SHN mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  In Vivo. 2000 May-Jun;14(3):431-5. PMID: 10904877 Abstract Title:  Effects of combined treatment with coffee cherry and whole-body hyperthermia on the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours in SHN mice. Abstract:  Based on findings that free access in drinking water of the extract of coffee cherry (CC), the residue left after the removal of coffee beans, and whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) induced by far-infrared ray (FIR) can markedly inhibit the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours of SHN mice, the effects of the combined treatment with these agents were examined in this study. The significant inhibition of tumour growth by single treatment with either CC or WBH was not enhanced by their combination. Meanwhile, the body weight loss during WBH was significantly decreased by CC. Normal and preneoplastic growth of mammary glands and plasma component levels were affected little by either treatment. The findings confirmed the"normalization effects"of CC usually obtained with natural products and stress the need for prudence in the choice of any agent, natural or synthetic, to be applied simultaneously to increase the efficacy of WBH.

The New World Order should more accurately be called the Deep State. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Forget the New World Order, Heres Who Really Runs the World

For decades, extreme ideologies on both the left and the right have clashed over the conspiratorial concept of a shadowy secret government often called the New World Order pulling the strings on the worlds heads of state and captains of industry.

The phrase New World Order is largely derided as a sophomoric conspiracy theory entertained by minds that lack the sophistication necessary to understand the nuances of geopolitics. But it turns out the core idea one of deep and overarching collusion between Wall Street and government with a globalist agenda is operational in what a number of insiders call the Deep State.

 In the past couple of years, the term has gained traction across a wide swath of ideologies. Former Republican congressional aide Mike Lofgren says it is the nexus of Wall Street and the national security state a relationship where elected and unelected figures join forces to consolidate power and serve vested interests. Calling it the big story of our time, Lofgren says the deep state represents the failure of our visible constitutional government and the cross-fertilization of corporatism with the globalist war on terror.

It is a hybrid of national security and law enforcement agencies: the Department of Defense, the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, the Central Intelligence Agency and the Justice Department. I also include the Department of the Treasury because of its jurisdiction over financial flows, its enforcement of international sanctions and its organic symbiosis with Wall Street, he explained.

Even parts of the judiciary, namely the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, belong to the deep state.

How does the deep state operate?

A complex web of revolving doors between the military-industrial-complex, Wall Street,  and Silicon Valley consolidates the interests of defense contractors, banksters, military campaigns, and both foreign and domestic surveillance intelligence.

According to Mike Lofgren and many other insiders, this is not a conspiracy theory. The deep state hides in plain sight and goes far beyond...

A Deep State Versus Deeper Reality Radical Love and Unified Field of Soul Consciousness "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 

By Allen L Roland, PhD

Veterans Today

The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate deep state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of a looming police state here at home and fermenting wars abroad but in the process ~ however, many have also become gradually aware of a far deeper choice and a soul based reality of a Unified Field that demands that we surrender to a state of Radical Love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite ~ which we continue to resist at our great risk: Allen L Roland, PhD

The basic underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness ( the Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite: Allen L Roland, PhD

 

Let me set the present precarious moment we are experiencing ~ from the perspective of the Vermont Republic regarding our own Kairos or our propitious moment for decision, action or opportunity.But what about today?  Have we not arrived at our very own Kairos?  See article ~/

Far-infrared rays markedly inhibited spontaneous mammary tumorigenesis in SHN mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Am J Chin Med. 2002 ;30(4):495-505. PMID: 12568277 Abstract Title:  Effects of hydroxyapatite in combination with far-infrared rays on spontaneous mammary tumorigenesis in SHN mice. Abstract:  We have found that the administration of a diet containing 5% hydroxyapatite (HAP) derived from pig and cattle bones, and exposure to far-infrared rays (FIR) markedly inhibited spontaneous mammary tumorigenesis in SHN mice. Thus, the effect of combined treatment with HAP and FIR on mammary tumorigenesis was examined. The significant inhibition of tumor development by individual treatment with HAP or FIR was not enhanced by combined treatment; instead, the decrease in the inhibitory effect of HAP with age was ameliorated. Associated with this, life span was elongated and a decline in ovarian function was prevented by HAP plus FIR. Normal and preneoplastic growth of mammary glands and plasma component levels were not significantly affected by any treatment. The findings indicate that HAP and FIR have characteristics common to most natural products; in combination with other agents, they have little additive effect, when each is highly active.

Inner Thigh Pain: Causes, Symptoms and Effective Treatments "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Inner thigh pain can cause a lot of discomfort anywhere on the inside of your leg from your groin area in the upper inner thigh to your knee. Depending on the reasons for having a sore inner thigh, the pain may be sharp and stabbing or it could be a constant dull ache. Sometimes the pain can radiate from other parts of the body to the inner thigh making it uncomfortable to go about your daily activities.

The sensation of pain in your pelvic region and inside your thigh can be caused by a pulled or strained muscle, a hernia, osteoarthritis, or even kidney stones. Many pregnant women experience pain in their inner thigh near their groin. Usually, getting rid of the pain involves treating or managing any underlying condition. However, in cases that your inner thigh pain is muscular, getting plenty of rest usually is enough to help ease the pain and relieve any discomfort.

In this article, we will explore the various reasons why you have pain in your inner thigh. You will also find out what you can do about a sore inner thigh and when it is serious enough to see your doctor.

Causes of Inner Thigh Pain

Here are some of the various reasons why your inner thigh hurts:

Muscular problems (Groin Strain)

Pulling a muscle in your groin will cause inner thigh pain and difficulties when it comes to walking. A groin strain can happen when the muscles on your inner leg get over-stretched or torn. This can result in mild to severe pain along the inside of the upper thigh, especially in the area where your inner thigh meets your pelvic bone. You can also have swelling, and discomfort when walking. Depending on the type of muscle injury you could also have pain around your lower inner thigh and not just the upper inner thigh.

Expert in sports medicine, Dr. Ross Brakeville says that the severity of groin strains can be divided into 3 categories:1

  • 1st-degree pain. This will cause mild pain and you shouldnt have any loss of movement.
  • 2nd-degree pain. This can cause moderate pain and could be a result of a tissue damage and bruising in your inner thigh.
  • 3rd-degree inner thigh pain. You will have severe pain and loss of strength in your leg if the leg muscle is completely torn.

Its important that you allow enough time for the groin strain to completely heal. According to Dr. Brakeville, it can take from 4 to 6 weeks for a groin strain to heal completely until you no longer have any pain in the affected inner thigh.

At the end of the article, you can find out how to treat inner thigh pain that is caused by a pulled muscle.

Interview: Vitalik Buterin on Scaling Ethereum, Its Popularity in Asia and ICOs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

vitalik interview

In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin discussed some of the scaling issues Ethereum is currently dealing with, the rising interest in Ethereum in Asia and his thoughts on the ICO ecosystem in general.

In late May, developers from the Ethereum-based job market platform Ethlance introduced an issue its freelancers were struggling to deal with. Twelve months ago, when the price of Ethereums token Ether was around $14, a smart contract to set up a freelancer profile on Ethlance cost less than $1.

As the price of Ether started to surge beyond $250, Ethlance freelancers were required to pay around $8 to set up their profiles. Issues of Ethereum-based decentralized applications (DApps) and the rising fees on Ethereum led the community and supporters of Ethereum to express their concerns over the platforms scalability.

Discussions on Etheruems scaling issues intensified as Buterins interview with Epicenter, conducted in December of 2014, resurfaced, during which he characterized Bitcoins $0.05 fee as absurd. Currently, Ethereums average fee is over $1 and its median fee is around $0.05, close to the level Buterin described as absurd.

Bitcoin Magazine spoke to Buterin to address some of these scaling issues Ethereum applications are currently dealing with, the rising transaction fees on Ethereum and the ICO ecosystem.

Scaling Issues of Decentralized Applications and How They Can Be Resolved

In regards to the issues that Ethlance and other DApp developers are facing, Buterin explained, There are a lot of applications and contracts even now that are being built inefficiently. One major example is that there are a lot of applications that make one separate contract for each user which means that for every single user, it adds several kilobytes of data that cost a few million gas.

Instead, Buterin explained that the same logic or contract is not required to be copied onto each other and replicated tens of thousands of times. There are more efficient ways to process smart contracts that can significantly reduce gas costs for users. He noted that by implementing efficient smart contracts, users can save anywhere from 50 to 90 percent in gas costs.

According to Buterin, the Ethereum Foundation and its development team recently asked writers to reduce their gas prices and some of them have agreed to do so to ensure that users are not required to spend upwards of $8 per smart contract. However, these solutions ca...

Profound research has produced a scientific basis for the simultaneous application of hyperthermia in combination with radiation or chemotherapy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Hyperthermia. 2001 Jan-Feb;17(1):1-18. PMID: 11212876 Abstract Title:  Hyperthermia in oncology. Abstract:  The purpose of this article is to provide an overview on the current clinical application of hyperthermia combined with conventional treatment modalities (e.g. ionizing radiation, chemotherapy) in the treatment of malignant disease. The clinical application of hyperthermia with increase of tissue temperatures (range 40-44 degrees C) has been integrated in multimodal anti-cancer strategies. This review describes selected phase I or II (n = 17) and phase III trials (n = 16) investigating the effect of hyperthermia combined with radiotherapy (n = 10 trials), chemotherapy (n = 15 trials), or both (n = 8 trials) in a total of more than 2200 patients. The trials were performed in a variety of solid tumours (e.g. melanoma, head and neck cancer, breast cancer, cancer of the gastrointestinal or urogenital tract, glioblastoma, sarcoma) in paediatric or adult patients. Profound research has produced a scientific basis for the simultaneous application of hyperthermia in combination with ionizing radiation and/or systemic chemotherapy. Hyperthermia is becoming more accepted clinically, due to the substantial technical improvements made in achieving selected increase of temperatures in superficial and deep-seated tumours. At present, the combination of hyperthermia and chemotherapy or radiochemotherapy is further tested within clinical protocols (phase II/III) in order to improve local tumour control and relapse-free survival in patients with high-risk or advanced tumours of different entities.

These findings justify using hyperthermia as part of standard treatment in tumour sites for which its efficacy has been proven. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Ann Oncol. 2002 Aug ;13(8):1173-84. PMID: 12181239 Abstract Title:  Heating the patient: a promising approach? Abstract:  There is a clear rationale for using hyperthermia in cancer treatment. Treatment at temperatures between 40 and 44 degrees C is cytotoxic for cells in an environment with a low pO(2) and low pH, conditions that are found specifically within tumour tissue, due to insufficient blood perfusion. Under such conditions radiotherapy is less effective, and systemically applied cytotoxic agents will reach such areas in lower concentrations than in well perfused areas. Therefore, the addition of hyperthermia to radiotherapy or chemotherapy will result in at least an additive effect. Furthermore, the effects of both radiotherapy and many drugs are enhanced at an increased temperature. Hyperthermia can be applied by several methods: local hyperthermia by external or internal energy sources, regional hyperthermia by perfusion of organs or limbs, or by irrigation of body cavities, and whole body hyperthermia. The use of hyperthermia alone has resulted in complete overall response rates of 13%. The clinical value of hyperthermia in addition to other treatment modalities has been shown in randomised trials. Significant improvement in clinical outcome has been demonstrated for tumours of the head and neck, breast, brain, bladder, cervix, rectum, lung, oesophagus, vulva and vagina, and also for melanoma. Additional hyperthermia resulted in remarkably higher (complete) response rates, accompanied by improved local tumour control rates, better palliative effects and/or better overall survival rates. Generally, when combined with radiotherapy, no increase in radiation toxicity could be demonstrated. Whether toxicity from chemotherapy is enhanced depends on sequence of the two modalities, and on which tissues are heated. Toxicity from hyperthermia cannot always be avoided, but is usually of limited clinical relevance. Recent developments include improvements in heating techniques and thermometry, development of hyperthermia treatment planning models, studies on heat shock proteins and an effect on anti-cancer immune responses, drug targeting to tumours, bone marrow purging, combination with drugs targeting tumour vasculature, and the role of hyperthermia in gene therapy. The clinical results achieved to date have confirmed the expectations raised by results from experimental studies. These findings justify using hyperthermia as part of standard treatment in tumour sites for which its efficacy has been proven and, furthermore, to initiate new studies with other tumours. Hyperthermia is certainly a promising approach and deserves more attention than it has received until now.

Current devices for high-performance whole-body hyperthermia therapy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Expert Rev Med Devices. 2010 May ;7(3):407-23. PMID: 20420562 Abstract Title:  Current devices for high-performance whole-body hyperthermia therapy. Abstract:  For late-stage cancer, whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) is highly regarded by physicians as a promising alternative to conventional therapies. Although WBH is still under scrutiny due to potential toxicity, its benefits are incomparable, as diversified devices and very promising treatment protocols in this area are advanced into Phase II and III clinical trials. Following the introduction of the WBH principle, this paper comprehensively reviews the state-of-art high-performance WBH devices based on the heat induction mechanisms - radiation, convection and conduction. Through analyzing each category's physical principle and heat-induction property, the advantages and disadvantages of the devices are evaluated. Technical strategies and critical scientific issues are summarized. For future developments, research directions worth pursuing are presented in this article.

This manuscript deals with discussions concerning the direct cytotoxic effect of heat, heat-induced alterations of the tumor microenvironment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Crit Rev Oncol Hematol. 2002 Jul ;43(1):33-56. PMID: 12098606 Abstract Title:  The cellular and molecular basis of hyperthermia. Abstract:  In oncology, the term 'hyperthermia' refers to the treatment of malignant diseases by administering heat in various ways. Hyperthermia is usually applied as an adjunct to an already established treatment modality (especially radiotherapy and chemotherapy), where tumor temperatures in the range of 40-43 degrees C are aspired. In several clinical phase-III trials, an improvement of both local control and survival rates have been demonstrated by adding local/regional hyperthermia to radiotherapy in patients with locally advanced or recurrent superficial and pelvic tumors. In addition, interstitial hyperthermia, hyperthermic chemoperfusion, and whole-body hyperthermia (WBH) are under clinical investigation, and some positive comparative trials have already been completed. In parallel to clinical research, several aspects of heat action have been examined in numerous pre-clinical studies since the 1970s. However, an unequivocal identification of the mechanisms leading to favorable clinical results of hyperthermia have not yet been identified for various reasons. This manuscript deals with discussions concerning the direct cytotoxic effect of heat, heat-induced alterations of the tumor microenvironment, synergism of heat in conjunction with radiation and drugs, as well as, the presumed cellular effects of hyperthermia including the expression of heat-shock proteins (HSP), induction and regulation of apoptosis, signal transduction, and modulation of drug resistance by hyperthermia.

Whole-body hyperthermia with far-infrared rays strongly inhibited the tumour growth without deleterious side-effects. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Anticancer Res. 1999 Sep-Oct;19(5B):4125-30. PMID: 10628363 Abstract Title:  Inhibition by whole-body hyperthermia with far-infrared rays of the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours in mice. Abstract:  To evaluate possible therapeutic benefits of irradiation with far-infrared rays (FIR) on breast cancer, we examined combined effects of the chronic exposure to FIR at ambient temperature (26.5-27.5 degrees C) and the whole-body hyperthermia induced by FIR (WBH) (35-41 degrees C) on the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours of mice. A high mammary tumour strain of SHN virgin mice born on the normal rack or FIR rack were maintained on the respective racks until mammary tumour appearance. When the mammary tumour size reached approximately 7 mm, some mice in each group received no further treatment (Control and FIR groups, respectively) and the remaining mice received 3 hours of WBH each of 5 consecutive days (C + WBH and FIR + WBH groups, respectively). There was little difference between the control and FIR groups in the tumour growth over 10 days of examination. On the other hand, the tumour growth was inhibited significantly in both C + WBH and FIR + WBH groups and the degree of inhibition was similar. The data confirmed that the chronic exposure to FIR at ambient temperature has little effect on the growth of spontaneous mammary tumours in mice. WBH with FIR, however, strongly inhibited the tumour growth without deleterious side-effects, while chronic FIR irradiation itself again had little effect in this process. This WBH regimen may serve as a useful animal model for long-term studies of a noninvasive treatment of breast cancer.

Whole body hyperthermia showed antitumor effects in a mouse subcutaneous tumor model of colon cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Hyperthermia. 2007 Nov ;23(7):591-8. PMID: 18038289 Abstract Title:  Antitumor effect of whole body hyperthermia with alpha-galactosylceramide in a subcutaneous tumor model of colon cancer. Abstract:  AIM: Whole body hyperthermia (WBH) has been used clinically as an adjunct to radio- and chemotherapy in patients with various cancers. Recently, it has been reported that an activation of the immune system has recently been reported as a possible contributor to the therapeutic effects of WBH. Conversely, the glycolipid alpha-galactosylceramide (alpha-GalCer) is recognized by natural killer (NK) T cells together with the monomorphic MHC-like antigen, CD1d, in mice and humans. This study investigated the antitumor effects of WBH combined with alpha-GalCer in a mouse subcutaneous tumor model of colon cancer.METHODS: Colon26 cells were inoculated subcutaneously into male BALB/c mice to establish subcutaneous tumor. Colon26-bearing mice were treated with WBH using far infrared rays three times/week. Rectal temperature was maintained for 60 min at 41 degrees C. In some experimental groups, alpha-GalCer was intraperitoneally injected before WBH. We investigated the therapeutic effects of WBH, alpha-GalCer and combined therapy.RESULTS: (1) Compared with controls, WBH alone resulted in significant inhibition of tumor growth. (2) No inhibitory effect on tumor growth was seen with alpha-GalCer. (3) The combination of WBH and alpha-GalCer showed significant inhibition of tumor growth and prolongation of survival. (4) Serum IFN-gamma increased after 3 h and returned to basal levels by 24 h after alpha-GalCer administration. (5) CTL activity was enhanced following combination therapy with WBH and alpha-GalCer.CONCLUSION: WBH showed antitumor effects in a mouse subcutaneous tumor model of colon cancer. Addition of alpha-GalCer increased the efficacy of WBH, probably via enhancement of immune response.

In private, Intelligence Community compared the Church Committee to their own personal Holocaust: [Emma Best] Janka wrote to General Scowcroft to argue that the White House needed to be ready to deal with the already divisive views on the Rockefeller Commission and the Church Committee. As Janka accurately noted, many expected the Rockefeller Commission to be a white wash designed to give CIA a clean bill of health. Similarly, many saw that the Church Committee was creating a witch hunt in its desire to thoroughly investigate the intelligence agencies wrongdoings. Accorded to Janka, few doubted that the Church Committees findings would suggest a thorough and possibly shattering restructuring of the CIAs charter and organization. Janka argued that regardless of the outcome of the Rockefeller Commission and the Church Committee, the President needed to be ready to act swiftly and decisively to perhaps preempt some of the witch hunt tendencies of the Church Committee.

Uri Avnery: Whither the Palestinian Authority? - Antiwar.com Original "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Whither the Palestinian Authority? - Antiwar.com Original: The location and the headline of the article demonstrate the importance which the American editors saw in her argument. The headline was "Do we need a Palestinian Authority?" and further on, in another headline, "Shutter the Palestinian Authority".

The argument of Diana Buttu seduces by its simplicity: the usefulness of the Palestinian Authority has passed. It should be liquidated. Now.

The Palestinian Authority, she says, was set up for a specific purpose: to negotiate with Israel for the end of the occupation and the creation of the hoped-for Palestinian state. By its very nature, that was a task limited in time.

According to the Oslo agreement, the negotiations for ending the occupation should have reached their goal in 1999. Since then, 18 years have passed without any movement towards a solution. The only thing that has moved was the settlement movement, which has reached by now monstrous dimensions.

In these circumstances, says Buttu, the Palestinian Authority has become a "subcontractor" of the occupation. The Authority helps Israel to oppress the Palestinians. True, it employs a large number of educational and medical personnel, but more than a third of its budget some 4 billion dollars go the "security". The Palestinian security forces maintain a close cooperation with their Israeli colleagues. Meaning, they cooperate in upholding the occupation.

This finding suggested that far-infrared therapy should be very effective medical treatment for some cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Med Oncol. 2008 ;25(2):229-37. Epub 2007 Oct 30. PMID: 17968683 Abstract Title:  The effects inhibiting the proliferation of cancer cells by far-infrared radiation (FIR) are controlled by the basal expression level of heat shock protein (HSP) 70A. Abstract:  We developed a tissue culture incubator that can continuously irradiate cells with far-infrared radiation (FIR) of wavelengths between 4 and 20 microm with a peak of 7-12 microm, and found that FIR caused different inhibiting effects to five human cancer cell lines, namely A431 (vulva), HSC3 (tongue), Sa3 (gingiva), A549 (lung), and MCF7 (breast). Then, in order to make clear the control system for the effect of FIR, the gene expression concerned to the inhibition effect by FIR were analyzed. In consequence, basal expression level of HSP70A mRNA was higher in A431 and MCF7 cells than in the FIR-sensitive HSC3, Sa3, and A549 cells. Also, the over expression of HSP70 inhibited FIR-induced growth arrest in HSC3 cells, and an HSP70 siRNA inhibited the proliferation of A431 cells by irradiation with FIR. These results indicate that the effect of a body temperature range of FIR suppressing the proliferation of some cancer cells is controlled by the basal expression level of heat shock protein (HSP) 70A. This finding suggested that FIR should be very effective medical treatment for some cancer cells which have a low level of HSP70. Still more, if the level of HSP70 in any cancer of a patient was measured, the effect of medical treatment by FIR can be foreseen for the cancer.

Donald Duck and Wartime Propaganda "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

On the 9th of June 1934, Donald Duck debuted in Disneys The Wise Little Hen, which was part of the Silly Symphonies series of theatrical cartoon shorts. The anthropomorphic white duck with a yellow-orange bill, legs, and feet, dressed in a blue sailor suit with a cap and a black or red bow tie, is one of the most popular characters in the Disney family, and probably, due to his distinctive semi-intelligible speech and mischievous personality, one of the most recognizable cartoon characters in the world.  His voice created by Clarence Nash and performed by him for almost fifty years, is distinctive both for its duck-like sounds and the fact that it is often difficult for anybody to understand. Yet, Donalds explicit facial expressions and general behaviour, dominated by his positive outlook on life with occasional outbursts of rage, leave no doubt as to what the stories are about.

Node.js Child Processes: Everything you need to know "IndyWatch Feed Education"

How to use spawn(), exec(), execFile(), and fork()

Screenshot captured from my Pluralsight courseAdvanced Node.js

Single-threaded, non-blocking performance in Node.js works great for a single process. But eventually, one process in one CPU is not going to be enough to handle the increasing workload of your application.

No matter how powerful your server may be, a single thread can only support a limited load.

The fact that Node.js runs in a single thread does not mean that we cant take advantage of multiple processes and, of course, multiple machines as well.

Using multiple processes is the best way to scale a Node application. Node.js is designed for building distributed applications with many nodes. This is why its named Node. Scalability is baked into the platform and its not something you start thinking about later in the lifetime of an application.

This article is a write-up of part of my Pluralsight course about Node.js. I cover similar content in video format there.

Please note that youll need a good understanding of Node.js events and streams before you read this article. If you havent already, I recommend that you read these two other articles before you read this one:

The Child Processes Module

We can easily spin a child process using Nodes child_process module and those child processes can easily communicate with each other with a messaging system.

The child_process module enables us to access Operating System functionalities by running any system command inside a, well, child process.

We can control that child process input stream, and listen to its output stream. We can also control the arguments to be passed to the underlying OS command, and we can do whatever we want with that commands output. We can, for example, pipe the output of one command as the input to another (just like we do in Linux) as all inputs and outputs of these commands can be presented to us using Node.js streams.

Note that examples Ill be using in this article are all Linux-based. On Windows, you need to switch th...

Trump, Putin and Kim Jong-un call for calm after UK election "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In a rare demonstration of international cooperation, leaders around the world have joined together to prevent the planet falling off a precipice. No matter what happens, we have your back, said the three leaders, who normally engage in a little ribald teasing of each other. Unlike climate change and world peace, said President Trump today, this is serious.

The NHS has stated that it is braced, and has put all its accountants on stand-by. Its impossible to say what the funding streams will look like going forward, said one NHS financial expert, but we can expect to see the budget on some form of life support, whatever happens.

The head of Islamic State has called for calm and urged Moslems the world over to give the UK time to come to terms with the results of the General Election. We will work closely with other world leaders to ensure the transition from bumbling to randomness is as smooth as possible, said an ISIS spokesman today.

The whole world is reeling at the prospect of Brexit happening hard, now; or soft, later; or quite incredibly, not at all. We could see companies Nationalised and bribed with Corporation Tax cuts at the same time, said one financial expert, admitting the markets just didnt know what to expect next, apart from huge profits.  The prospect of a coalition involving the extreme right and the extreme left is a real eventuality, said a political commentator remembering the Blair years with a shudder.

PMID:  Conf Proc IEEE Eng Med Biol Soc. 2007 ;2007:1479-82. PMID: 18002246 Abstract Title:  Clinical effects of far-infrared therapy in patients with allergic rhinitis. Abstract:  Allergic rhinitis (AR) is the sixth most common chronic illness worldwide, which has a significant impact on patients' quality of life. The actual cost of AR is staggering, approximately $5.6 billion being spent annually in direct medical costs and other indirect costs. Therefore, it should be taken seriously upon its evaluation and treatment. AR is an IgE-mediated inflammation, which symptoms are likely due to increased vascular permeability. Current therapeutic options such as avoidance of allergen, medication and immunotherapy are unsatisfactory. Far-infrared (FIR) is an invisible electromagnetic wave with a wavelength longer than that of visible light. It has been used to treat vascular diseases as a result of an increase in blood flow. The objective of this study was to evaluate the clinical effects of FIR therapy in patients with AR. Thirty-one patients with AR were enrolled in this study. A WS TY101 FIR emitter was placed to face the patient's nasal region at a distance of 30 cm. The treatment was performed for 40 min every morning for 7 days. Every day, patients recorded their symptoms in a diary before and during treatment. Each symptom of rhinitis was rated on a 4-point scale (0-3) according to severity. During the period of FIR therapy, the symptoms of eye itching, nasal itching, nasal stuffiness, rhinorrhea and sneezing were all significantly improved. Smell impairment was not improved until after the last treatment. No obvious adverse effect was observed in the patients during treatment and follow-up. We concluded that FIR therapy could improve the symptoms of AR and might serve as a novel treatment modality for AR.

States step forward to trump climate catastrophe "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Climate change Farm

On June 1, in a snub to science and the world, Trump announced he is withdrawing the United States out of the Paris Agreement the global accord aiming to curb greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change. Almost immediately following the announcement, states, cities and businesses began stepping up to make their own climate commitments.  

At present, over 1,400 actors have pledged to individually uphold the U.S. mitigation targets and adhere to the guidelines outlined in the accord even if the country as a whole wont participate in the agreement.  

Trump may be out, but America isnt  

On the very day Trump declared he was pulling the country out of the agreement, California, New York and Washington launched the United States Climate Alliance. Thirteen governors have now joined the alliance, and six other states have expressed their support.   

Even though the U.S. is the second-highest greenhouse gas emitter, members of the newly formed Climate Alliance together represent more than a third of the countrys GDP and make up the third-largest economy in the world behind the U.S. and China. These states, cities and businesses are committing to the original U.S. goal under the Paris Agreement to reduce emissions by 26-28% from 2005 levels by 2025.   

Ag states lead the way  

Several of the states joining the alliance are agricultural heavy hitters. Given that...

Waon therapy is effective for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Intern Med. 2008 ;47(16):1473-6. Epub 2008 Aug 15. PMID: 18703857 Abstract Title:  Efficacy of Waon therapy for fibromyalgia. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is a chronic syndrome characterized by widespread pain with tenderness in specific areas. We examined the applicability of Waon therapy (soothing warmth therapy) as a new method of pain treatment in patients with FMS.METHODS: Thirteen female FMS patients (mean age, 45.2+/-15.5 years old; range, 25-75) who fulfilled the criteria of the American College of Rheumatology participated in this study. Patients received Waon therapy once per day for 2 or 5 days/week. The patients were placed in the supine or sitting position in a far infrared-ray dry sauna maintained at an even temperature of 60 degrees C for 15 minutes, and then transferred to a room maintained at 26-27 degrees C where they were covered with a blanket from the neck down to keep them warm for 30 minutes. Reductions in subjective pain and symptoms were determined using the pain visual analog scale (VAS) and fibromyalgia impact questionnaire (FIQ).RESULTS: All patients experienced a significant reduction in pain by about half after the first session of Waon therapy (11-70%), and the effect of Waon therapy became stable (20-78%) after 10 treatments. Pain VAS and FIQ symptom scores were significantly (p

How Mindfulness Literally Rewires Your Brain for Present Moment Awareness (and How You Can Practice It) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Youve probably heard about mindfulness before. Maybe youve downloaded an app, or youve read an article claiming its benefits, but you still dont quite understand how it works.

Do you have to levitate above a cushion to make it work? Is there even a right way to do it?

Mindfulness is certainly popular, but the good thing is you can do it in any moment. Including this one rightnow.

The three words that define mindfulness.

The three words that guide any mindfulness practice: present moment awareness. Its that simple, but also difficult.

Our brain can be so powerful and useful, but it can also be so easily distractable. If youre like most people, whenever you try present moment awareness, the mind inevitably wanders off. A worry, a thought, a memoryjust like this, the now is gone.

How to strengthen your mind muscle.

However, the good news is that each and every time you become AWARE that the mind has wandered, and bring it back to the present, you are strengthening your ability to be mindful. You can do push ups for your arm muscles, squats for your leg muscles and mindfulness for your mind.

We dont need t get angry when our mind wanders off however. All we need to do is ease our attention back to the present moment, with some patience and some love.

A mindful practice you can try anywhere, anytime.

Theres a good reason that many mindful practices involve the breath we can do it anywhere we go! You might be with familiar with yoga, politates or tai chi which are breath-based activities. But you can also tune into your breath in a mindful way.

When youre feeling frazzed or just need to check into the present, start with a long,deep breath. Just notice how it feels to expand the lungs, the rush of air in and out. Already, youre telling your nervous system that youre safe and it starts to relax the mind.

Next, we are going to observe the environment. Observation is different to thinking, because our thoughts can become noisy.

To truly observe something is to bring an attitude of curiosity.

Now, the next exercise is to start list for yourself: Five t...

Farmers of color to get their fair share? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Farmer Equity Act

Last week, legislation to address historic racial inequities in agriculture cleared a major hurdle in California. The Farmer Equity Act passed with one lone dissenting vote, 60-1. PAN has been supporting the farmers leading the charge on this bill, following their lead on how to begin addressing the long history of systemic racism in agriculture.

Given deep, historic inequities, its no surprise that farmers of color in California currently receive fewer state and federal resources and continue to face barriers in accessing, land, water and markets. And if the Farmer Equity Act becomes law, it will take steps to rectify that injustice, ensuring farmers of color have greater access to resources in the state and that they have a designated advocate in the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA).

A long-standing problem

While racism in agriculture has been a reality since our country's inception, federal agencies started taking note just a few decades ago. In the mid-1990s, a report commissioned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) confirmed that the largest loans went to corporations and white male farmers, and 97% of disaster payments went to white farmers. The report stated that minorities received less than their fair share of USDA money for crop payments, disaster payments, and loans.

Later reports from USDA found the agency unable to address civil rights compla...

The Financial Choice Act Doesnt Repeal Dodd-Frank, but Its Still a Big Deal "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Ron Sachs/CNP / Polaris/NewscomThe number of regulations on American banks has doubled since 2010, which means plenty of work for regulators in Washington but less time (and money) for banks to do the things they are supposed to be doing.

The culprit behind those growing piles of financial regulations is the Dodd-Frank Act, passed by Congress in response to the banking collapse that led into the so-called Great Recession.

Congress on Thursday took a step towards reducing those piles of regulations, as the House voted straight down party-lines to approve the Financial CHOICE Act. Though the bill is expected to face significant opposition in the Senate, its passage is the surest sign yet that Republicans are serious about rolling back Obama era regulations that force banks to spend more time (and money) dealing with government imperatives.

This law may have had good intentions, said Speaker of the House Paul Ryan

In the mid-19th century, Philadelphia physician Thomas Story Kirkbride incorporated magic lantern slides into his moral treatment regimen at the Pennsylvania Hospital for the Insane. While these image projections often featured enlightening entertainment like astronomy or travelogues, magic lantern therapy could get a bit strange. In Architecture of an Asylum: St. Elizabeths, 18522017 now on view at the National Building Museum (NBM) in Washington, DC, an 1850s slide from Saint Elizabeths Hospital shows a man whose sleep is interrupted by a blue horse-like creature riding on a turtle, a sword in one hand and a red lobster dangling in the other.

Sarah A. Leavitt, curator at NBM, wrote about the Nightmare Turtle slide for the blog of the Historical Collections of the National Library of Medicine:

We do not know exactly how these were used, but NLM researchers learned that many mental health practitioners believed that these startling slides, which depict some disturbing images, were part of a therapeutic regimen. In this case, a man lies peacefully in bed until the pulled slide reveals an armadillo sitting on top of a turtle over his head, holding a lobster and a sword. Thomas Kirkbride, whose work on designing mental health hospitals influenced the design of St. Elizabeths, wrote that the slides help alleviate delusions and morbid feelings, at least for a transitory period.

Nutmeg, as he's now known, was rescued as a stray in September of last year, and taken to Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester, New York. Thought to be 5 years old, the cat had clearly been through a lot of hardship; he was emaciated, his ears were damaged and he was suffering a nasal infection.

His perpetually worried face showed that he'd run out of hope.

"When we first met Nutmeg, it seemed as though he might be the saddest cat in the world," Paige Doerner, communications specialist at the shelter, told The Dodo.

Nutmeg may have given up hope, but his rescuers did not.

Slowly but surely, the skinny cat's health improved and his sweet personality began to shine through, despite the lingering sadness on his face. Still, what Nutmeg needed most was a forever home to call his own but potential adopters just kept passing him by.

Over the next nine months, he remained under the care of Lollypop Farm and foster families. Recently though, that all changed.

Last weekend, that "saddest" cat found what he had been waiting so long for: a family who would embrace him for who he is.

"Nutmeg was adopted by a young couple who fell in love with him the moment they saw his face!" Doerner said. "The adoption counselor who facilitated Nutmeg's meet-and-greet with his new family said that they were so excited about Nutmeg, and just couldn't wait to take him home."

A few days later, Nutmeg's family shared a photo of their new pet at home and the smile on his face...

Nevada Takes the Lead: Defies Outdated Federal Law to Begin Cultivating Industrial Hemp "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Macro detail of hemp fiber twine and hemp leaf

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

Nevada has made a legal statement many are calling revolutionary. It defied the USA federal ban of industrial hemp agriculture with Nevada governor Brian Sandovals signing into law SB 396, which was passed overwhelmingly in both the Nevada State Assembly and Senate. This allows Nevada to raise hemp for commercial use, not merely for research, within its borders.

Hemp and marijuana are of the same species. They are related. According to George Blankenbaker, president of Realhemp, Inc, hemp is the most misunderstood and underappreciated crop there is in the world. The apparent confusion between marijuana or cannabis and hemp has made growing industrial hemp without THC illegal in the USA only.

This demonstrates the incredible nonsensical irony of reluctantly allowing hemp imports from China, Canada, and parts of Europe and elsewhere to be sold anywhere in the USA, but banning them from being grown commercially in the United States.

Whats the Difference and Why the Apparent Confusion?

Both industrial hemp and marijuana belong to the Cannabis sativa L species. The differences are created by breeding to create hybrids (not GMO) for specific functions. Marijuana is bred to produce THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which creates the taboo high, along with 60 to 80 other cannabinoids, among which CBD, (cannabidiol) is present. CBD with its vast medicinal qualities and almost no THC can be extracted from industrial hemp. More on that here.

Medicinal cannabis or marijuana demands a little more attention and care than industrial hemp, which is always grown outdoors. Marijuana is often grown indoors in small shrub-like plants. This is to control the environment sufficiently for creating predictable THC/CBD (cannabidiol) quantities and cannabinoid/terpene combinations for the entourage effect appropriate for medical and recreational purposes.

Far infrared therapy inhibits vascular endothelial inflammation via the induction of heme oxygenase-1. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Arterioscler Thromb Vasc Biol. 2008 Apr ;28(4):739-45. Epub 2008 Jan 17. PMID: 18202320 Abstract Title:  Far infrared therapy inhibits vascular endothelial inflammation via the induction of heme oxygenase-1. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Survival of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) in hemodialysis patients is associated with both far infrared (FIR) therapy and length polymorphisms of the heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) promoter. In this study, we evaluated whether there is an interaction between FIR radiation and HO-1 in regulating vascular inflammation.METHODS AND RESULTS: Treatment of cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (ECs) with FIR radiation stimulated HO-1 protein, mRNA, and promoter activity. HO-1 induction was dependent on the activation of the antioxidant responsive element/NF-E2-related factor-2 complex, and was likely a consequence of heat stress. FIR radiation also inhibited tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha-mediated expression of E-selectin, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, intercellular cell adhesion molecule-1, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1, interleukin-8, and the cytokine-mediated adhesion of monocytes to ECs. The antiinflammatory action of FIR was mimicked by bilirubin, and was reversed by the HO inhibitor, tin protoporphyrin-IX, or by the selective knockdown of HO-1. Finally, the antiinflammatory effect of FIR was also observed in patients undergoing hemodialysis.CONCLUSIONS: These results demonstrate that FIR therapy exerts a potent antiinflammatory effect via the induction of HO-1. The ability of FIR therapy to inhibit inflammation may play a critical role in preserving blood flow and patency of AVFs in hemodialysis patients.

Far-infrared therapy can improve access flow, inflammatory status and survival of the arteriovenous fistulain hemodialysis patients. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Chin Med Assoc. 2009 Mar ;72(3):109-16. PMID: 19299217 Abstract Title:  Prognostic factors influencing the patency of hemodialysis vascular access: literature review and novel therapeutic modality by far infrared therapy. Abstract:  In Taiwan, more than 85% of patients with end-stage renal disease undergo maintenance hemodialysis (HD). The native arteriovenous fistula (AVF) accounts for a prevalence of more than 80% of the vascular access in our patients. Some mechanical factors may affect the patency of hemodialysis vascular access, such as surgical skill, puncture technique and shear stress on the vascular endothelium. Several medical factors have also been identified to be associated with vascular access prognosis in HD patients, including stasis, hypercoagulability, endothelial cell injury, medications, red cell mass and genotype polymorphisms of transforming growth factor-beta1 and methylene tetrahydrofolate reductase. According to our previous study, AVF failure was associated with a longer dinucleotide (GT)n repeat (n>or = 30) in the promoter of the heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) gene. Our recent study also demonstrated that far-infrared therapy, a noninvasive and convenient therapeutic modality, can improve access flow, inflammatory status and survival of the AVF in HD patients through both its thermal and non-thermal (endothelial-improving, anti-inflammatory, antiproliferative, antioxidative) effects by upregulating NF-E2-related factor-2-dependent HO-1 expression, leading to the inhibition of expression of E-selectin, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, and intercellular adhesion molecule-1.

PMID:  J Am Soc Nephrol. 2007 Mar ;18(3):985-92. Epub 2007 Jan 31. PMID: 17267744 Abstract Title:  Far-infrared therapy: a novel treatment to improve access blood flow and unassisted patency of arteriovenous fistula in hemodialysis patients. Abstract:  Vascular access malfunction, usually presenting with an inadequate access flow (Qa), is the leading cause of morbidity and hospitalization in hemodialysis (HD) patients. Many methods of thermal therapy have been tried for improving Qa but with limited effects. This randomized trial was designed to evaluate the effect of far-infrared (FIR) therapy on access flow and patency of the native arteriovenous fistula (AVF). A total of 145 HD patients were enrolled with 73 in the control group and 72 in the FIR group. A WS TY101 FIR emitter was used for 40 min, and hemodynamic parameters were measured by the Transonic HD(02) monitor during HD. The Qa(1)/Qa(2) and Qa(3)/Qa(4) were defined as the Qa measured at the beginning/at 40 min later in the HD session before the initiation and at the end of the study, respectively. The incremental change of Qa in the single HD session with FIR therapy was significantly higher than that without FIR therapy (13.2 +/- 114.7 versus -33.4 +/- 132.3 ml/min; P = 0.021). In comparison with control subjects, patients who received FIR therapy for 1 yr had (1) a lower incidence (12.5 versus 30.1%; P

Buzz from the Minnesota capitol "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Bee in hive

As the dust settles on Minnesotas 2017 legislative session, the push for new pollinator protective policies has mostly wrapped up for the year. The outcome? In a year when many, many issues we care about saw major rollbacks, we managed to win a few small victories for pollinators and hold back the worst proposals that wouldve gutted our states pesticide laws.

But legislative leaders were remarkably unwilling to look for solutions to the pesticide and pollinator problem, and there is much work still to do.

Modest steps for bees

The latest statistics on annual losses of honey bee colonies were just released, and while the losses are lower than in recent years, they are still well above what beekeepers consider sustainable.

In the face of ongoing bee declines, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture (MDA) proposed two science-based, reasonable pieces of legislation both recommendations based on its review of how neonicotinoid insecticides (neonics) impact the health of pollinators we rely on for our key crops. The bills called for Minnesota to:

  1. Create a pollinator protection account to research pest management and identify ways to reduce pesticide use; and
  2. Close a legal loophole that exempts pesticide seed treatments from the laws that dictate all other pesticide uses.

The Power Behind the Pipelines: Atlantic Coast Pipeline "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The Public Accountability Initiative Considers the ACP, June 2017

Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC is proposing the approximately 600-mile unidirectional, open access Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) to transport Marcellus-Utica shale gas from West Virginia, through Virginia, and ending in North Carolina. Four energy corporations Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, Piedmont Natural Gas Company, and Southern Company Gas are behind the proposed pipeline, though Dominion is the driving force. Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2017, pending regulatory approval from FERC and state agencies.

The ACP has raised intense opposition from environmentalists and communities that stand to be impacted by it. Its proposed route will run through environmentally fragile land, threaten land values and nearby residents, and potentially involve mountain ridgeline reduction. Opponents claim abuse of eminent domain laws for private gain and argue that the ACP is not needed to meet regional energy demands, but is rather an attempt to raise profits to please shareholders.

This report maps out some of the powerful interests behind the ACP.

Key findings include:

>>> Vast corporate power behind the pipeline. Dominion Energy, the biggest stakeholder in the ACP, is a huge economic and political powerhouse in Virginia and beyond. The company and its powerful CEO have used their deep pockets and political ties to advance their interests generally and around the pipeline.

>>> An army of revolving door lobbyists. Dominion and its surrogates have deployed a band of private lobbyists who have backgrounds in government including a former EPA official from the Obama administration.

>>> Pro-pipeline politicians cash in. State politicians in Virginia and North Carolina who have been publicly vocal about their support for the pipeline have been some of the biggest recipients of donations from its corporate backers.

>>> Conflicts of interests at regulatory agencies. Key members of regulatory boards tasked with approving the pipeline in Virginia have backgrounds that raise conflict of interest concerns. For example, the Virginia DEQs Water Permitting Division Director was once a lawyer for Dominion, according to minutes from a county board meeting.

>>> Banks invested in the pipeline. Nearly three dozen banks have credit agreements for almost $15 billion in total to Dominion and Duke. Many of these banks are also funding the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline

Far infrared ray stimulation decreases both stress and fatigue levels in patients receiving regular hemodialysis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Am J Chin Med. 2009 ;37(2):215-26. PMID: 19507267 Abstract Title:  Effects of far infrared acupoint stimulation on autonomic activity and quality of life in hemodialysis patients. Abstract:  Patients receiving regular hemodialysis sessions have been known to suffer from fatigue and depression. This experiment was designed to determine the effects of far infrared ray (FIR) stimulation on acupoints of patients suffering from renal failure who are receiving regular hemodialysis. Patients receiving long-term and regular hemodialysis who volunteered for this procedure were randomly selected to undergo either FIR or heat pad (HP) therapy to determine the impact of FIR treatment on these patients. Both the activities of the autonomic nervous system and changes in quality of life were measured before and after treatment to determine the effectiveness of the FIR treatment. Results from this study show that FIR therapy decreases both stress and fatigue levels of these patients. It also stimulates autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity in patients who are diagnosed with end-stage renal disease (ESRD) and are receiving regular hemodialysis (HD). Therefore, benefits of FIR stimulation on these patients are clearly demonstrated in this preliminary study.

Four years ago, a police officer in Phoenix, Arizona, spotted an injured female pit bull wandering the streets. The dog was in such bad shape, it was incredible that she was still alive.
 
She was emaciated and covered in ticks, Jeannette Goldsberry, the woman who eventually adopted the dog, told The Dodo. She was so dirty, he thought that she was brown, and she was so swollen and scarred, he thought that she was also blind.

Perhaps most disturbing of all, the dogs ears had been bitten off, which suggested that shed been used in dogfighting, possibly as a bait dog.  
 
She had multiple bite wounds to her ear, Goldsberry said. One of her ear flaps was completely severed; the other one was rotten and decayed and not preservable.

The police officer caught the dog and took her to a local shelter. Then volunteers from Mayday Pit Bull Rescue stepped in. While the rescue group couldnt take the dog themselves, they contacted Goldsberry and her husband, and asked if they would foster her.

For some reason, we just agreed, and so my husband went and picked her up from the shelter, and immediately took her to the ER vet, Goldsberry said.

The vet team tried their best, but they didnt think shed make it.
 
She ended up having multiple tick-borne diseases, and she was anemic, Goldsberry said. The people at the rescue said she was the worst theyd ever seen. I mean, she literally smelled like death it was horrible.

Abstract:  It has been previously reported that sauna therapy, a thermal therapy, improves the hemodynamics and clinical symptoms in patients with chronic heart failure and also improves endothelial function, which is impaired in such patients. The present study investigated whether the improvements observed with sauna therapy are through modulation of arterial endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) expression. Eight male Syrian golden hamsters underwent sauna therapy, using an experimental far infrared-ray dry sauna system, at 39 degrees C for 15 min followed by 30 degrees C for 20 min daily for 4 weeks. Control group hamsters were placed in the sauna system switched off at room temperature of 24 degrees C for 35 min. Immunohistochemistry found greater amounts of the immunoreactive products of eNOS in the endothelial cells of the aorta and carotid, femoral and coronary arteries in the sauna group than in the control group. Western blot analysis also revealed that 4-week sauna therapy significantly increased eNOS expression in aortas by 50% in 4 series of independent experiments with an identical protocol (p

Repeated sauna treatment improves impaired vascular endothelial function in the setting of coronary risk factors. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Am Coll Cardiol. 2001 Oct ;38(4):1083-8. PMID: 11583886 Abstract Title:  Repeated thermal therapy improves impaired vascular endothelial function in patients with coronary risk factors. Abstract:  OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine whether sauna therapy, a thermal vasodilation therapy, improves endothelial function in patients with coronary risk factors such as hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and smoking.BACKGROUND: Exposure to heat is widely used as a traditional therapy in many different cultures. We have recently found that repeated sauna therapy improves endothelial and cardiac function in patients with chronic heart failure.METHODS: Twenty-five men with at least one coronary risk factor (risk group: 38 +/- 7 years) and 10 healthy men without coronary risk factors (control group: 35 +/- 8 years) were enrolled. Patients in the risk group were treated with a 60 degrees C far infrared-ray dry sauna bath for 15 min and then kept in a bed covered with blankets for 30 min once a day for two weeks. To assess endothelial function, brachial artery diameter was measured at rest, during reactive hyperemia (flow-mediated endothelium-dependent dilation [%FMD]), again at rest and after sublingual nitroglycerin administration (endothelium-independent vasodilation [%NTG]) using high-resolution ultrasound.RESULTS: The %FMD was significantly impaired in the risk group compared with the control group (4.0 +/- 1.7% vs. 8.2 +/- 2.7%, p

Sea turtles find them and think they're jellyfish "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The release of balloons into to the sky is usually a festive occasion. People release them while attending a celebration, honoring a loved one or kicking off a charity event.
 
Unfortunately, balloons impact on wildlife has a different meaning. This juvenile green sea turtle, who had ingested one, was found floating in the ocean near Redington Long Pier, on the west coast of Florida.

When balloons deflate and fall from the sky, they often wind up in the ocean, and become part of the 14 billion tons of trash that fill the seas each year and kill marine animals around the world.

Chex would have another life lost if the rescue team at Clearwater Marine Aquarium (CMA) hasn't responded to a call from a Good Samaritan, who spotted Chex floating on the surface of the water.
 
Sea turtles normally spend their time underwater, coming up every 20 minutes for oxygen. A floating sea turtle is generally suffering from gastrointestinal issues this happens primarily when the turtle ingests plastic or a balloon and is called floater syndrome. The plastic becomes lodged in the turtles digestive track, trapping air and disrupting his ability to dive down. This leads to the turtles inability to feed or protect himself and, eventually, the turtle will starve to death.
 
Chex, like many turtles, probably ate a balloon because he thought it was a jellyfish.

Leonardo DiCaprio teams up with Mexicos president and wealthiest individual to save the vaquita "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Actor and environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio has jumped into the fight to save the critically endangered vaquita together with the president of Mexico and the countrys wealthiest individual. An agreement signed Wednesday by DiCaprio, President Enrique Pea Nieto, and billionaire Carlos Slim makes a temporary ban on gillnets adopted by Mexico in 2015 permanent, with the goal of ending use of the fishing gear that has decimated vaquita numbers altogether. A report by the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita released in February found that there are as few as 30 vaquita left in the Upper Gulf of California, the small marine cetacean species only known range. Despite the ban adopted by Mexico two years ago, unlawful use of gillnets remains widespread in the Upper Gulf of California, where theyre used to catch totoaba, a fish whose swim bladder is much prized by practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine. Though no health benefits have yet been proven by science, it is believed that swim bladders from fish in the family Sciaenidate, which includes totoaba, can be used to cure a number of ailments. Vaquita become ensnared in the gillnets and drown, the chief cause of their precipitous population decline. According to the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita report, vaquita numbers dropped by 90 percent between 2011 and 2016. https://twitter.com/LeoDiCaprio/status/872592356272480256 Mexico understands its responsibility as one of the countries with greatest biodiversity, Pea Nieto said, as reported by the AP.

MIT Climate Scientist Trashes 97% Consensus Claim: Global Warming Science is Propaganda "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Dr. Richard Lindzen is sick and tired of the media repeating the so-called 97 percent consensus statistic to show just how strong the global warming agreement is among climate scientists. Its purely propaganda, argues Lindzen.

It was the narrative from the beginning, Lindzen, a climatologist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), told RealClear Radio Hour host Bill Frezza Friday.

In 1998, [NASAs James] Hansen made some vague remarks. Newsweek ran a cover that says all scientists agree. Now they never really tell you what they agree on.

It is propaganda, Lindzen said. So all scientists agree its probably warmer now than it was at the end of the Little Ice Age. Almost all Scientists agree that if you add CO2, you will have some warming. Maybe very little warming.

But it is propaganda to translate that into it is dangerous and we must reduce CO2, he added.

Lindzen if referring to the often cited statistic among environmentalists and liberal politicians that 97 percent of climate scientists agree human activities are causing the planet to warm.

This sort of argument has been around for decades, but recent use of the statistic can be traced to a 2013 report by Australian researcher John Cook.

Cooks paper found of the scientific study abstracts expressing a position on [manmade global warming], 97.1% endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming.

But Cooks assertion has been heavily criticized by researchers carefully examining his methodology.

A paper by five leading climatologists published in the journal Science and Education found only 41 out of the 11,944 published climate studies examined in Cooks study explicitly stated mankind has caused most of the warming since 1950 meaning the actual consensus is 0.3 percent.

It is astonishing that any journal could have published a paper...

Small Village in Italy is Using Street Art to Fight Against Depopulation "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

cvta street fest civitacampomarano

Zia Rosaria, 91-years-old, continues to live in the abandoned portion of Civitacampomarano.

With one in seven inhabitants leaving Italy's small villages for prospects elsewhere, it's estimated that one-third of the country's villages are at risk of depopulation. One such town, Civitacampomarano, spurred on by what started as a strange coincidence, is using art to turn around the tide of abandonment that is washing over it.

In 2014, Ylenia Carelli, president of Civitacampomarano's cultural organization, saw an interview with Italian street artist Alice Pasquini on television. Liking what she saw, she sent an email inviting the artist to paint in her town. With only 400 inhabitants, the chances were unlikely, but to her surprise, Pasquini responded, not only saying that she would come and paint, but that her now 100-year-old grandfather was actually from the town.

And with this coincidence, CVT Street Fest, which I help organize, was born. Now in its second year under the artistic direction of Pasquini, the goal is to use art to bring a focus to this tiny village in the Italian region of Molise. From April to June, five artists from four different countries came to leave their mark on the village. And while they may have left a visual sign, what they took away was the heart and spirit of a population that is tied to its roots. With all the schools closed and only a handful of children still in town, most of the citizens are elderly but have embraced the street artists with open arms.

BTC.com Wallet Tries Discounting Some Priority Transaction Fees "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

BTC.com Wallet Tries Discounting Some Priority Transaction Fees

Bitmain subsidiary BTC.com is now offering its wallet users discounted priority transactions. Though currently still a beta feature, this will let BTC.com users pay some 94 percent less in fees for three transactions each month to have them confirm faster. The funds allocated toward the discounted transaction fees will be subsidized by the BTC.com Wallet.  

The new service comes at a time when transaction fees on the Bitcoin network are reaching all-time highs.

Speaking on recent transaction fees reaching all-time highs, and how it may impact potential Bitcoin adopters, BTC.coms Alejandro De La Torre told Bitcoin Magazine:

The effect of rising tx costs mostly affects the perception of bitcoin to new users. They might think its too expensive or might use a low tx fee and have their bitcoin transaction confirm in a very long time. Both scenarios are not good for adoption.

This is not the first time that bitcoin wallets have offered discounted transaction fees. Many wallets have previously paid for transaction fees on behalf of users, but stopped doing so recently (such as Coinbase and Xapo), said De La Torre.

BTC.com is currently the only bitcoin wallet that also serves as a fully operational mining pool, currently controlling approximately 7 percent of hash power on the Bitcoin network.

The Scalability Problem

The Bitcoin community has been embroiled in arguments over the best solution to scale the network for years now. Perhaps the most popular solution is Segregated Witness, a soft fork protocol upgrade proposed by the Bitcoin Core development team. Bitmain in particular has explicitly stated their refusal to implement SegWit if its not combined with a hard fork increase of the block size limit, and its pools which include the BTC.com mining pool have enough signaling power to block SegWits activation.

These results suggest that repeated sauna therapy may protect against oxidative stress, which leads to the prevention of atherosclerosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Jpn Heart J. 2004 Mar ;45(2):297-303. PMID: 15090706 Abstract Title:  Repeated sauna therapy reduces urinary 8-epi-prostaglandin F(2alpha). Abstract:  We have reported that repeated sauna therapy improves impaired vascular endothelial function in a patient with coronary risk factors. We hypothesized that sauna therapy decreases urinary 8-epi-prostaglandin F(2alpha) (PGF(2alpha)) levels as a marker of oxidative stress and conducted a randomized, controlled study. Twenty-eight patients with at least one coronary risk factor were divided into a sauna group (n = 14) and non-sauna group (n = 14). Sauna therapy was performed with a 60 degrees C far infrared-ray dry sauna for 15 minutes and then bed rest with a blanket for 30 minutes once a day for two weeks.

For Developers, Ego is the Enemy "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I recently finished reading the book Ego is the Enemy, by Ryan Holiday and came up with many valuable advice and I decided to write this article.

When you hear the word enemy, you probably think about regular expressions, bugs, deployments, meetings, and deadlines. Actually, in our quest to reach our goals and become the software developers we want to be, we are usually our own worst enemies. Ego is what prevents us from asking for help, learning, collaborating and working hard.

Here with ego we are referring to the unhealthy belief in our own importance: our arrogance and our self-centered ambition. That petulant child in every person who chooses to win all the time and at the expense of others.

Ego leads us to think that were special, and that we know a lot more than we actually know and that we do not need to collaborate with others, as we are self-sufficient. It prevents from the real mastery of programming. From working well and building good relationships with other fellow developers or other people in general. From recognizing opportunities, or creating them, simply because we live inside our own fantasy of greatness.

Ego is a constant threat at every moment of our lives. It prevents us from building more great products, maintaining and progressing towards higher objectives and recovering from our failed projects.

If we really want to protect ourselves from ego, we should be aware of its techniques at every stage of our life.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Sun Tzu

To whatever you aspire, ego is your enemy

You may have a really good GPA, or many of your family members and close friends may have called you a prodigy.

In these types of cases, your ego tends to make you feel that the world owes you the success you want. That you must get employed and climb up the corporate ladder for a record time. That you are supposed to be employed without needing to go through the formal recruiting stages.

You may think that you do not need to have any repository on GitHub, as you have already surpassed your peers with your GPA. Your ego leads you to think that you do not need to work hard.

Angiogenesis was induced via eNOS using thermal therapy in mice with hindlimb ischemia. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Circ J. 2006 Apr ;70(4):463-70. PMID: 16565566 Abstract Title:  Repeated thermal therapy up-regulates endothelial nitric oxide synthase and augments angiogenesis in a mouse model of hindlimb ischemia. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Nitric oxide (NO), constitutively produced by endothelial NO synthase (eNOS), plays roles in angiogenesis. Having reported that thermal therapy up-regulated the expression of arterial eNOS in hamsters, we investigated whether this therapy increased angiogenesis in mice with hindlimb ischemia.METHODS AND RESULTS: Unilateral hindlimb ischemia was induced in apolipoprotein E-deficient mice, which were divided into control and thermal therapy groups. The latter mice were placed in a far-infrared dry sauna at 41 degrees C for 15 min and then at 34 degrees C for 20 min once daily for 5 weeks.

Scientists Discover 100 Million-Year-Old Baby Bird Trapped in Amber "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Enantiornithine bird amber myanmar

Photo: Lida Xing

After dinosaur tails and bird wings, researchers have found the next big discovery trapped inside a piece of Burmese amberalmost the entire body of a 100-million-year-old bird. The chunk of amber from Myanmar contains the head, neck, wings, tail, and feet, making it one of the most complete specimens ever discovered.

The bird was a hatchling that was most likely just a few days old when it fell into sap that later hardened into amber, trapping it inside. Its the most complete and detailed view weve ever had, shares Ryan McKellar of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Canada, who was part of the team that made the discovery. Seeing something this complete is amazing. Its just stunning.

The baby enantiornithine bird was just developing its tail feathers when encased in the Burmese amber. Enantiornithes are an extinct group of bird-like animals that were the precursors to modern avians. They thrived during the Mesozoic era before dying out along with the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. McKellar notes that they hatched on the ground and then climbed up into the trees, making it more likely for them to get stuck in sap.

And while enantiornitheans were closely related to modern birds, there are some distinct differences. For instance, they were beakless but had teeth, as well as claws on their wings. And while there's no DNA left in the samplethe flesh had broken down into carbonthere's plenty of analysis that can be done using scanners to create 3D models for scientists to learn more about this incredible group of pre-historic animals.

Stay tuned, as with the way things have been going, we'll be sure to hear about a new discovery in Burmese amber sooner rather than later.

Far-infrared therapy exerts a nitric oxide-related biological effect to increase skin microcirculation in rats. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Photodermatol Photoimmunol Photomed. 2006 Apr ;22(2):78-86. PMID: 16606412 Abstract Title:  Biological effect of far-infrared therapy on increasing skin microcirculation in rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Insufficient microcirculation of skin leads to acute and chronic tissue ischemia in cases of trauma, reconstructive surgery, diabetes mellitus and peripheral arterial occlusive disease. The autonomic nervous system and nitric oxide (NO) play important roles in maintaining blood perfusion of the skin. Far-infrared (FIR) therapy provides low energy of light emitted from an artificial radiator and has been used to treat many vascular-related disorders. Nevertheless, the mechanisms through which FIR works remain unclear. The present study aims to test the hypothesis that the effect of FIR is through increasing skin microcirculation by a mechanism other than its thermal effect.METHODS: Sixty rats were used in the present study. A WS TY301 FIR emitter was placed 20 cm above the rats. Skin temperature and blood flow were continuously measured by a K-type thermocouple. Under laboratory control, the abdominal skin temperature steadily increased from 38-39 degrees C, and was kept at constant temperature. Skin microcirculation was measured with a continuous laser Doppler flowmeter.RESULTS: There was no significant change of skin blood flow during FIR treatment. Skin blood flow increased significantly soon after the removal of the FIR emitter. The stimulating effect on skin blood flow was more significant in the rats treated with FIR for 45 min and could be sustained as long as 60 min. These findings suggested a non-thermic biological effect of FIR on skin microcirculation. The promotive effect of FIR on increasing skin blood flow was not influenced by pretreatment of APP (atropine, propranolol and phentolamine), but was suppressed by pretreatment with NG-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (an endothelial nitric oxide synthase inhibitor).CONCLUSION: In conclusion, FIR therapy exerts a NO-related biological effect to increase skin microcirculation in rats. This might bring into perspective the clinical application of FIR to treat ischemic disease by augmenting L-arginine/NO pathway.

Seems Like Nvidia is Making a Video Card Especially for Mining "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

There is some information circulating around in the last couple of days that Nvidia is making a video card specifically designed for mining as well as some speculations that AMD is doing the same as well. While are know for a fact that this is true for Nvidia, we are having some doubts about AMD doing it with all the AMD GPU shortages we are seeing lately and the news they can continue for the next few months. With the lack of AMD GPUs on the market the miners started buying Nvidia GPUs, so very soon we are most likely going to see cards such as the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 getting harder to find on the market. Higher-end GPUs are probably going to have better availability for now, but who knows if miners will move on to these as well if there are not other options available.

We know that Nvidia is focused on gamers and not as much interested in mining and miners like AMD for example, so they do not want to have availability issues of their GPUs just like it has happened with AMD now just because of the miners. So they have apparently figured a solution to the problem just make a GPU intended for mining and miners and sell that to miners instead of their gaming-centered products. The card that they are building is an NVIDIA Pascal GP106-100 GPU that comes with no video output connectors, passive cooler (still needs airflow for proper cooling) and much shorter warranty just 3 months. The idea is to have a more affordable price wise option for miners that can be used only for mining (hence no video outputs) and that could make it even more interesting alternative. The crypto mining GPU from Nvidia is apparently based around the consumer GeForce GTX 1060 9Gbps model and the price should be cheaper than that of the consumer model.

The information that we are seeing about the GP106-100 mining GPUs mentions some numbers regarding mining performance, the following numbers are for 8x of these GPUs: 200 MHS for ETH, 2500 Sol/s for ZEC, 4400 H/s for XMR. These numbers translate to about 25 MHs for Ethereum, 312.5 Sol/s for ZCash and 550...

He let a neighbor know there was something wrong. "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A newborn baby boy who was abandoned inside a plastic bag on a cold night in Argentina is alive and safe today all thanks to the actions of this sweet, attentive dog named Orejn.

Headlines across the country are now hailing him a hero. Orejn is a familiar face on the street in the city of Vincent Lopez where he lives with his owner, Enzo Gimnez. So, when a neighbor running an errand on Tuesday evening saw Orejn out and about on the block, it normally wouldn't have been cause for alarm but this time, the little pup was making it clear there was a problem.

"When I returned, I saw Orejn was a little disturbed," the neighbor told Clarn, adding: " He was smelling and barking at a bag. I approached and saw that there was something strange."The neighbor soon realized why Orejn was so concerned. Inside the bag was a sleeping infant who had apparently been left there intentionally. It was a cold night, so the baby might have perished from exposure had the dog not found him and alerted the person passing by.

Indeed, Orejn likely saved the baby's life.After authorities were called to assist, the baby, thought to be just a few weeks old, was taken to a local hospital. Although he was initially found to be malnourished and suffering from hypothermia, the child is now reportedly in good health.

Police investigating the case have yet to determine who abandoned the baby. Since the news broke of how Orejn saved him, adoption offers for the newborn have been pouring in.Orejn, meanwhile, is being lavished with plenty of well-deserved praise.

Some local outlets have even termed him a "guardian angel" but this isn't the first time the dog has proved himself to be a hero. Orejn's owner, Gimnez, told Clarn that just two months earlier, the dog had rescued his neighbors by alerting them that their house had caught on fire.

"Thanks to him, they woke up and were saved," he said.While the fact that this baby was abandoned at all is heartbreaking on its own, thanks to the actions of Orejn, an even worse tragedy was prevented.

Idle No More edmonton no justice signMost of them wont be celebrating.

By MOIRA MACDONALD, University Affairs, June 7, 2017
Confederation has been described as a turning point for the worse in the lives of First Nations, Inuit and Mtis peoples in Canada. Indigenous rights established through Britains Royal Proclamation of 1763 and subsequent treaties were not upheld, its been well-argued. There was a steep decline in the vitality of Indigenous cultures and languages, and in peoples well-being, particularly after the Indian Act of 1876.

The countrys Truth and Reconciliation Commission, looking into the legacy and abuses of the residential school system for Indigenous children, wrote in its 2015 report that national reconciliation is the most suitable framework to guide commemoration of Canadas 150th anniversary, calling it an opportunity for Canadians to take stock of the past, celebrating the countrys accomplishments without shirking responsibility for its failures. The following are reflections from six Indigenous scholars at Canadian universities on their vision for a reconciled Canada.

British PM Theresa May: Pedophiles Should Be Allowed To Adopt "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Newly appointed British Prime Minister Theresa May ordered a review on whether pedophiles should be allowed to adopt children in order to not breach their human rights.

In an article in the respected Child and Family Law Quarterly, Miss Reece suggested that reoffending rates were not high among sex criminals, adding: despite growing public concern over paedophilia, the numbers of child sex murders are very low.

Mapuche Political Prisoners on Indefinite Hunger Strike: We risk our lives to guarantee our freedom. "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Mapuche flag woman childWomens Coordinating Committee for a Free Wallampu, June 7, 2017

Mapuche Political Prisoners, in so-called southern Chile, prosecuted in relation to Luchsinger Mackay case in the prison of Temuco communicate the following:

On Monday, May 29th, 2017, we have begun a hunger strike as a last recourse of resistance within political prison to demand and pressure authorities for due process in our cases.

As is publicly known, there has been a lack of evidence throughout this overwhelming process, which has been falling apart slowly in the courts.

Yet the Office of the Prosecution (FIAC) and their representative, Attorney Alberto Chifelle, have made enormous efforts to stretch all legal recourses necessary to push our cases to the Constitutional Tribunal, with the objective to continue our pre-trial detention. We state our innocence of the charges that have been laid on us. They wish to keep us behind bars, since we maintain our conviction of struggle for our Mapuche nation, which has led us to initiate a hunger strike as a radical measure of resistance and protest to enforce our demands as Mapuche Political Prisoners

How to Clean Copper & Brass Without Chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Cleaning Without the Use of Chemicals

It seems that every cleaning supply under the kitchen sink has harsh chemicals on its list of ingredients. These chemicals can attack respiratory systems, cause skin irritations, and in some cases, can bring long term health concerns. Copper & Brass has been a task that brings up such concerns because of the caustic nature found in these chemical based tarnish removing supplies.

 

No Harsh Chemicals for Brass and Copper Cleaning

The patina that forms on brass and copper over time is caused by a reaction to the surrounding air. In the past, harsh brass and copper cleaners requiring you to glove-up have been employed. For me, this is a sure sign that it is time to find something in the home that can not only get the job done, but do it without dangerous chemicals!

Foods That Clean Copper & Brass

Over the years I have recalled a few of the techniques for cleaning Brass and Copper that my mother and Grandmother employed. Some may be among the things that you have in your everyday pantry and refrigerator. Here is a list, and how to use chemical-free food items to make your brass sparkle and your copper gleam!

Video: Violent Muslim Extremists With Bats And Weapons Attempt To Attack This French Guy But He Has A Deadly Concealed Surprise Waiting "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

With tensions rising across the globe, especially in France and Britain, residents have started to realize that they can no longer depend on their local police or governments to protect them.

As demonstrated in the video below, several French-speaking individuals were gathered together when a band of what is reportedly Muslim refugees and/or residents of the area began shouting threats at them. From the video, it appears that the first group of people are unarmed and simply trying to get away. But the bat-wielding, hoodie covered assailants would have none of it.

Several of them made their way towards one of the men with weapons in hand, at which point he revealed a concealed surprise none of them saw coming.

Apparently, even in socialist, hyper-tolerant, anti-gun France, there are still some wise individuals who have realized the reality of todays world:

Field Notes: Pond turtle studies could help sea turtles survive toxic algal blooms "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

[caption id="attachment_196455" align="aligncenter" width="768"] Trachemys scripta scripta. Like the sea turtle, this common pond turtle can survive without oxygen for long periods, a physiological capability that also makes these animals more resistant to red tide toxins. Photo by Giucre CC BY-SA 3.0 via Wikimedia Commons[/caption] Beneath their prehistoric-looking shells, turtles conceal an extraordinary ability to hold their breath underwater, going without oxygen for hours, even months, at a time. This cellular-level capacity to survive underwater also helps turtles resist the effects of environmental pollution from harmful algal blooms (HABs), toxic events also commonly dubbed red tides, according to studies by physiologist Sarah Milton and her colleagues at Florida Atlantic University. A better understanding of how these red tide toxins affect freshwater turtles could help researchers develop better treatment protocols for sickened sea turtles that are rescued during harmful algal outbreaks. Harmful algal blooms appearing as red tides or in other colors occur with the rapid uncontrolled growth of algae in freshwater or marine environments. The alga uses up the waters oxygen, making it anoxic, while also producing toxins. These events sometimes naturally caused, but also brought on by increased nutrient loading due to chemical fertilizers and other human activities have become an annual event on the U.S. Gulf Coast, killing endangered sea turtles, manatees, dolphins, fish and countless other marine life.

Interview: Vitalik Buterin on Scaling Ethereum, Its Popularity in Asia and ICOs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/2rQE51O

Interview: Vitalik Buterin on Ethereum Scaling Issues, Popularity in Asia and ICOs

In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine, Ethereum co-founder Vitalik Buterin discussed some of the scaling issues Ethereum is currently dealing with, the rising interest in Ethereum in Asia and his thoughts on the ICO ecosystem in general.

In late May, developers from the Ethereum-based job market platform Ethlance introduced an issue its freelancers were struggling to deal with. Twelve months ago, when the price of Ethereums token Ether was around $14, a smart contract to set up a freelancer profile on Ethlance cost less than $1.

As the price of Ether started to surge beyond $250, Ethlance freelancers were required to pay around $8 to set up their profiles. Issues of Ethereum-based decentralized applications (DApps) and the rising fees on Ethereum led the community and supporters of Ethereum to express their concerns over the platforms scalability.

Discussions on Etheruems scaling issues intensified as Buterins interview with Epicenter, conducted in December of 2014, resurfaced, during which he characterized Bitcoins $0.05 fee as absurd. Currently, Ethereums average fee is over $1 and its median fee is around $0.05, close to the level Buterin described as absurd.

Bitcoin Magazine spoke to Buterin to address some of these scaling issues Ethereum applications are currently dealing with, the rising transaction fees on Ethereum and the ICO ecosystem.

Scaling Issues of Decentralized Applications and How They Can Be Resolved

In regards to the issues that Ethlance and other DApp developers are facing, Buterin explained, There are a lot of applications and contracts even now that are being built inefficiently. One major example is that there are a lot of applications that make one separate contract for each user which means that for every single user, it adds several kilobytes of data that cost a few million gas.

Instead, Buterin explained that the same logic or contract is not required to be copied onto each other and replicated tens of thousands of times. There are more efficient ways to process smart contracts that can significantly reduce gas costs for users. He noted that by implementing efficient smart contracts, users can save anywhere from 50 to 90 percent in gas costs.

According to Buterin, the Ethereum Foundation and its development team recently asked writers to reduce their gas prices and some of them have agreed to do so t...

A Horror Comic Suffused with Satanism and Dense with Dread "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

From Winnebago Graveyard # 1, art by Alison Sampson (all images courtesy of Image Comics)

Very average people encounter unspeakable horrors in Winnebago Graveyard, a comic that parks its lavish visuals and grim script less than an hours drive from where members of the Manson family set out on a murder spree in 1969. While exposition is sparse in the comic, a potent interplay is palpable between writer Steve Niles and artist Alison Sampson as they open their miniseries about a religious cult and mysterious community in Acton, California. Dread sets in under the algae-green glow of an aging neon sign in the first panel a midnight exterior scene at the Sierra Pelona Motel parking lot.

The cool blues and pastel violets that colorist Stphane Paitreau employs for the abduction of a nearly naked couple from their motel room are soon quickly abandoned, and blazing fires and splashes of blood populate the lions share of Winnebago Graveyards pages. Sampsons black-robed, torch-wielding mob marches its victims past an RV in the Sierra Pelona lot, then pile its bounty into pickup trucks. They barrel down mountain roads toward a valley, and hectic panels-within-panels depict the captives hellish ride. Soon, all is red brake lights and crackling auburn flames.

At a clearing encircled by more members of the cloaked horde, clouds take toothy serpent shapes and obscure the white of Sampsons enormous desert moon, but nothing can dampen the menace below. The most ghastly sequence in Winnebago Graveyard #1 conjures grainy B-horror films and paper-thin stories of satanic ritual abuse that hyperbolic 1980s television hosts chased for ratings. Perched over the bound man now splayed out on a makeshift altar, a presumed high priest readies an offering. Things end as badly as expected from horror veteran Niles, whose credits include work with recently departed macabre master...

Enthusiasts Designing Specific Hardware for Crypto Mining Needs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The peak of interest in crypto mining in the last months has apparently sparkled the need for some interesting new products designed to help the users of mining rigs get things done in a better and more efficient way. As a result we are seeing enthusiast designed things like a power distributor board allowing the users to connect up to 4 power supplies that can be used to work together powering a single mining rig. Of course you can always go for a 2x PSU boards such as the Add2PSU, but what if you need to connect three or four power supplies? With Add2PSU you can use a number of devices to connect more power supplies together, but this will take up more molex connectors on the main power supply. Going for an optimized board that can use up to 4x power supplies together with a single molex from the main PSU is more convenient, especially if going for a 8x GPU mining rig with more powerful video cards that take up two PCI-Express power connectors.

Another commonly needed thing for multi GPU mining rigs is an easy way to connect multiple cooling fans to go along with the video cards by helping them get cooler air and eliminate the forming of hot air pockets around the GPUs. So getting an easy way to connect multiple fans, up to 6 for example via a single board powered by a 4-pin Molex power connector makes things much more simple and user friendly. Adding...

Man resorts to nearby public toilet as roommate begins shower "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NEW YORK A desperate man stood in the interior hallway of his Brooklyn home Thursday, waiting impatiently to use the bathroom.

I was standing there a good five minutes, staring at the strip of light shining through the door jam, Mark Allen, 26, told reporters in front of Tonys Pizzeria on Manhattan Avenue. Thats when I heard the shower.

Allen said the Janet, the hostess, eyed him suspiciously as he entered the empty restaurant at 10 a.m. and walked past her to the restroom.

People are constantly coming in off the street and asking to use our restroom, Janet said. As soon as Mark walked in, I knew what he was up to. He said hello to me in a fake pleasant tone, and walked right past my station.

Janets irritated demeanor told Allen his presence in the establishment was not welcome, and he began to feel guilty. Allen was determined to justify himself.

I made it to the bathroom, and locked the door, so I had time to think, Allen said. I hadnt eaten anything yet, having only just crawled out of bed, so while I was sitting there, doing my business, I thought, Ill prove that bitch wrong. Shoot me a dirty look, will she? Why, as soon I exit this bathroom, Ill buy a slice a pizza while Im here. Thatll show her!

Without looking in Janets direction, Allen said he got in line for pizza, and ordered two slices of pepperoni, and a Coke. As he paid, he glanced over to Janet, who hung her head in embarrassment.

I really thought he just wanted to use the bathroom like a common bum, Janet said. But it turns out Im the asshole. Mark is a paying customer, and had every right to shit in our toilet. I really need to keep my prejudice in check.

How I Managed to Photograph Obama on a Beach in 2008 "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

In the fall of 2008, Barack Obama had just become the Democratic candidate and was heavily favored to win the White House to become the first African American President of the United States. His popularity created media frenzy as the world was thirsty to learn more about the young Senator from Illinois. Because Obama was a presidential candidate, a media corps began to follow and report on Obamas every move.

The media press corps, made up from members of major media outlets, accompanies a political candidate or President wherever they go, reporting and distributing news dispatches to a wider audience. Usually a pool consists of a group of writers, video and sound operators, and still photographers.

That fall, Obama traveled to Hawaii taking a break from his hectic campaign schedule. The traveling press pool followed, but Secret Service protection, along with Obamas strict media handlers, limited their access to the candidate.

However, photos of Obama in Hawaii were surfacing all over social media and paparazzi shots were widely published. Despite complaints from the credentialed press traveling with him, Obamas handlers continued to limit access. This irked many, so news organizations began to utilize freelance photographers to work outside those restrictions.

The Associated Press hired me to shadow Obama in hopes of getting some photos of the elusive candidate. I had been freelancing for AP for several years in Hawaii, so they knew I was able to handle the stressful job. Since Obamas schedule was kept secret, we had to guess where he might go that day and Id try to arrive before security locked everything down. Many times, Id end up empty-handed. But my luck changed when AP assigned me to sit on the beach outside Obamas beach house in Kailua.

Obamas beach rental sat between two public access points on the famed, white sand beach. Because all of Hawaiis beaches are public and have mandatory public access, security was only able to rope off a small area directly in front of the residence. Anyone could essentially wander the beach walk up to the house.

On the first day, I arrived before 5 a.m. carrying two Canon 1D Mark II DSLRs, one with a 400mm f/2.8 IS and the other with a 70-200 f/2.8. I kept a 24-70mm f/2.8 and flash in a bag. I also brought along water and snacks, as I knew I was up for a long day of waiting. I walked down one access point near his home and settled myself facing towards the house. Almost immediately, security arrived and asked me what I was doing. I identified myself and since I was in public view and a respectable distance away, they had no choice but to leave me alone.

Readers from Italy have been contacting Health Impact News this past week, asking us to cover the massive demonstrations happening throughout Italy to protest a new mandatory vaccine law. This news has been censored from the U.S. corporate media.

Francesca Alesse, who worked with the VAXXED film team to get the film shown in Italy last year, writes:

In an unprecedented way, the decree-law proposed by the Minister of Health has been signed by the sitting Italian president Sergio Mattarella. Only four vaccines were mandatory in Italy, now that number triples to 12.

Thousands of parents have protested the new law this past June 3rd, protests and marches have taken place in 21 Italian cities spread across the nation. A national protest is scheduled for this Sunday June 11th.

Artist Zwelethu Mthethwa Sentenced to 18 Years in Prison for Murder "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Artist Zwelethu Mthethwa has been sentenced to 18 years in prison for the murder of sex worker Nokuphila Kumalo, GroundUp reported. Mthethwa was convicted of the crime on March 16 after a trial that lasted nearly four years.

Kumalo was brutally beaten and kicked to death on the side of the road in a suburb of Cape Town in April 2013; the killing was captured on CCTV footage. Although he maintained his innocence all along, Mthethwa was placed at the scene via his car, and he did not testify in court. He later told a psychiatrist that he could not remember what happened that night. Judge Patricia Goliath rejected the artists claim of memory loss in her ruling, calling it untruthful and fabricated.

In her sentencing, Goliath similarly rejected the arguments made by the defense that Mthethwa should not be sent to prison. As the Mail & Guardian reported, a clinical psychologist and a social worker were called to the stand, and both emphasised that if sent to prison, Mthethwa would be unable to support family members and would not be able to contribute to society. The psychologist, Martin Yodaiken, stressed Mthethwas importance to society and deemed him a significant ambassador to South Africa, likely referring to the artists reputation and success abroad. Known for his penetrating photographic portraits of everyday South Africans, Mthethwa has work in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Centre Pompidou, the Victoria & Albert Museum, and many other institutions.

Heathen community continues the struggle to distance themselves from extremism "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

UNITED STATES When two men were fatally stabbed and another injured on a Portland train in May, officials and journalists began to follow the predictable course of profiling the attacker in an effort to understand why he would resort to such actions. After a few short days, several sources began to speculate on his Heathen religious practice, more specifically on Odinism.

This assumption rests squarely on Facebook posts made the attacker over the past year. On May 9, he wrote, Hail Vinland!! Hail Victory!!

[Photo credit: Paul Walker.]

According to historians, Vinland refers to a land that exists beyond Greenland where wild grapes and wheat grew and is casually referred to in various Icelandic texts as well as other similar sagas and documents coming from Northern European cultures.There is no firm agreement on exactly where or what Vinland was considered to be by early Vikings. However, according to a collection of archaeological evidence, the area seems to have been located somewhere between Newfoundland and New England.

The term Vinland has more recently become a rallying point for white supremacist groups and has been used in the naming of related organizations, such as the Wolves of Vinland. In a post last fall, the Oregon attacker wrote, I Hereby Solemnly swear to Die trying to Kill Hillary (Herself a filthy Murderess) Clinton and Donald Trump should they be elected to the post of President in my faire country on Vinland [sic].

The ideological meaning placed on Vinland in these cases is not entirely dissimilar from the Trump administrations call to make America great again. At their core, both rallying cries center around a false nostalgia, hearkening back to a time when life was allegedly better than it is today, and promising that a return to that illustrious time would fix all modern problems. Although similar, one cry is far more openly extreme than the other.

Along with using Vinland, the Portland attacker has also referenced other Pagan or Heathen terminology, and has suggested that he harbors polytheist beliefs. According to...

Photographer Turns Six Years of Documenting Storms into One Mesmerizing Time-Lapse Film "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Storm Clouds Photography

Some creative endeavors are weeks or months in the making. But for photographer Chad Cowan, his incredible time lapse project took over half a decade to complete. In collaboration with editor Kevin X Barth, the short film Fractal features hundreds of thunderstorms that are condensed into one mesmerizing piece. The result is storm photography that highlights the inherent duality of natureits ability to destroy as well as rebuild. With every ominous set of clouds that descends on the landscape, it is eventually punctuated with tranquil skies and sunshine.

So, how does a supercell thunderstorm form? The technical answer is by moisture, wind shear, instability and lift, but Cowan has a more poetic explanation for itone that's reflected in Fractal. I prefer to focus on the big picture, he writes. Supercell thunderstorms are a manifestation of nature's attempt to correct an extreme imbalance. The ever ongoing effort to reach equilibrium, or entropy, is what drives all of our weather, and the force with which the atmosphere tries to correct this imbalance is proportional to the gradient. In other words, the more extreme the imbalance, the more extreme the storm. It seems the desire for balance is present in every facet of existencefrom the weather to our personal lives.

To capture all of the footage featured in Fractal was a beyond-intensive endeavor. In the span of six years, Cowan drove nearly 100,000 miles across the U.S. from his home in Kansas and recorded powerful storm clouds photography. The project started out simply enough, with Cowan wanting to witness the storms' life cycles for his own enjoyment and understanding. It quickly took on a life of its own, though. Over time, Cowan explains, it morphed into an obsession with wanting to document as many photogenic supercells as I could, in as high a resolution as possible, as to be able to share with those who couldn't see first-hand the majestic beauty that comes alive in the skies above America's Great Plains every spring.

Cowan hopes to create a much longer version of Fractal. In the meantime, if youd like to join him for a chase, he invites you to...

Comey Testifies Lynch pressured him on Clinton investigation.. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Under questioning by panel chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Comey said that he was uncomfortable with the unexpected meeting Lynch had with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac last year. 

Comey said that meeting convinced him that the independence of the investigation was tainted with regard to the Justice Department and led him to go public with the bureau's findings on Clinton. 


When Comey testified on May 3 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was asked about the Lynch meeting. 

He told lawmakers "a number of things had gone on which I cant talk about yet, that made me worry that the department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American peoples confidence in the justice system.

Fighting Back: ANH, Allies Leading the Charge for Natural Medicine "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The FDA has been waging an all-out war against natural medicine. In response, we are uniting with allies to articulate the truth. Will the FDA listen to science, or Big Pharma?

Weve been keeping readers up to date on the FDAs salvo of new regulations and rules for the compounding industry, which makes customized, natural medicines to accommodate the needs of sensitive populations.

Recently, our friends at the Integrative Medicine Consortium (ICM) sent official comments to the FDA laying out folly in the FDAs approach to writing these new rules. Their comments echo many of the same points made in ANHs own comments to the FDA.

The main thrust of the comment concerns the criteria proposed by the FDA to judge whether substances can be allowed on the Bulk Drug Ingredients list. Remember that a substance can only be compounded by a traditional pharmacy if it 1) has a USP monograph, 2) is a component of an approved drug, or 3) appears on the pre-approved Bulk Drug Ingredients list.

As weve reported before, the Pharmacy Compounding Advisory Committee (PCAC) has recommended that the FDA reject many, many natural substances from the list, including curcumin, aloe vera, boswelia, and others.

Consider this example, taken from IMCs comments:

Based on the FDAs criteria, the dietary supplement MSM (Methylsulphonylmethane) is pending rejection for arthritis management in large measure because of four cases of bleeding, while the Agency believes that the availability of a COX-2 inhibitor, a drug carrying a black box warning for risk of heart attack and stroke, is not only acceptable but such a clear choice that physicians should be denied MSM as a treatment option in favor of the COX-2 inhibitor.

IMC also points out that the stated criteria by which the FDA said it would make its decisionsphysical characteristics, safety, efficacy, and historical useare not applied in practice. Instead, more subjective judgments are made. The comment charges that actual FDA practice has been to:

  • presume that if an ingredient is nominated for a specific indication for which an approved drug exists the nominated ingredient will be denied for even minimal safety risks.
  • impose a standard that an ingredient can be rejected in part from a concern that its use could unnecessarily delay treatment with a commercially approved drug.
  • allow unproven concerns for safety or effectiveness to override a history of safe use of an ingredient.
  • impose a substantial burden of evidence while failing to include all available evidence of effectiveness.
  • impose a sta...

Can marine reserves help counteract climate change? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Even if all the worlds nations fully cooperated to reduce carbon emissions and limit climate change, elevated carbon dioxide levels will continue to harm our oceans in the coming decades. A new paper makes the case that marine protected areas (MPAs) are a cost-effective way to mitigate the worst oceanic consequences of climate change. MPAs, where fishing and human development are prohibited or greatly reduced, are usually touted for their ability to improve fish stocks and marine biodiversity. But the new paper, published this week in the journal PNAS, examines a different suite of positive effects. It points to evidence that MPAs decrease seawater acidification and buffer the effects of rising sea levels and storm intensification. They can also provide safe havens for species whose original habitats no longer suit them and nurseries to repopulate areas damaged by low oxygen and lack of nutrients. The paper also highlights how MPAs store and sequester carbon, helping to offset global carbon emissions. Marine ecosystems have been sequestering carbon over the millennia; it's why we have oil and coal, Daniel Pauly, one of the papers authors and the principal investigator with the Sea Around Us project at the University of British Columbia, told Mongabay. In this paper we restate something that should be obvious, if we set up a marine protected reserve where nature can reaffirm itself, it will be good for the [larger] ecosystem, he said.

North Koreas Satellites May ALREADY Have EMP Weapon, Expert Warns; Were Blind And Defenseless; 90 Percent Of Population Would Die "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Its possible North Korea already has deployed an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) weapon capable of killing 90 percent of the population, and its passing over the United States each day.

Thats what Peter Vincent Pry, the chief of staff for the Congressional EMP Commission, believes. Pry told Off The Grid Radio that North Korea has two satellites circling the globe that the U.S. knows little about.

The threat were most concerned about is a nuclear EMP attack, and North Korea might well be able to do that right now, Pry said.

An EMP weapon is a low-yield nuclear bomb that generates electromagnetic energy that would fry all electronics including the power grid.

North Koreas two satellites are called Kwangmyngsng (KMS)-3 and KMS-4.

You almost never hear about this in the press, Pry told  Off The Grid Radio. (KMS-3) is still up there, and it passes over the United States

Wipeout: FPA Approved Drugs Kill More People than Live in Seattle "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Since 2005, the FDA has approved the death instrument of 786,000 people. Thats more than the population of Seattle, DC, or 4 entire states! Action Alert!

Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine found that nearly one third of drugs approved between 2001 and 2010 had major safety issues after being made available to patients. This isnt just the discovery of innocuous new side effects; 71 of 222 drugs approved during that time were either withdrawn from the market, required to carry a black box warning (the strictest warning a prescription drug can carry), or had a safety announcement issued about new risks from the drug. This means, your odds would be far better playing Russian roulette than putting an FDA approved drug into your body.

Part of the problem, according to the researchers, is that many important drug trials used for approval involve fewer than 1,000 patients and last six months or less. Others add that patients used in clinical trials are often cherry-picked to produce the best results for the drug.

This is yet another piece of damning evidence showing that our drug approval process is broken and responsible for death and hardship for millions of Americans. Worse, the drugs that wont kill or sicken you probably wont give you any benefit at all.

At the center of this broken drug approval system is the systemic corruption that the FDAs own scientists have lamented, where sound science and safety concerns are ignored in order to rush blockbuster drugs to market. This crony feeding-frenzy has devoured roughly 3x more lives than were lost in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, yet is drawing little attention from lawmakers. The full figures are detailed on our FDA Death Meter page.

The facts are clear. Nevertheless, our politicians talk of speeding up drug approvals and increasing the fees Big Pharma pays to the FDAputting the agency deeper into industrys pocket!

The death toll and complications from FDA approved drugs is a sharp contrast from the record of supplements. One report from the Government Accountability Office found that there were an average of 1,575 adverse event reports (AERs) related to supplements per...

"Terrorism cannot be ended using fascist, hegemonic and violent methods. The methods [used in Tehran] are another form of terrorism. The Iranian regime is one of the powers responsible for the chaos in the Middle East and is trying to export its Islamic Revolution to other countries by using religion and terror."

TSA May Extend Ban On Laptops To Domestic Flights "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(WJZ) The rash of terror attacks in Great Britain come as the summer travel season is beginning. That means security measures, especially at airports, will see increased work loads, and passengers longer waits.

Finding and removing the everyday items that terrorists have turned into threats is a huge challenge, WJZs Alex DeMetrick reports.

And between now and Labor Day, a lot of Americans will spend time coming and going by air.

Since 9/11, passenger planes have been a high priority target for terrorists, with bombs bringing down a Russian airliner in Egypt, and blowing a hole in a Somali jet last year.

Airplanes have been the common threat that weve seen over the past several years, says Ben Yelin, of the University of Maryland Center for Health and Homeland Security.

And the last line of defense is Transportation Security Administration security screening.

A 9-volt battery, says TSA officer Camille Morris. A AA battery is fine. A AAA. A 9-volt battery is a huge power charge. The size of the battery that can take down a plane when attached to an explosive.

That kind of threat prompted a ban on laptop and computer pads from airplane cabins flying from seven African and Middle Eastern countries this past spring. It could spread to domestic flights.

The Department of Homeland Security is currently considering the possible expansion of that laptop ban, says Lisa Farbstein, a TSA spokesperson. No decision has been made.

The president is prepared to nominate Randal Quarles and Marvin Goodfriend to two of three vacancies at the central bank, according to multiple press accounts that have not been disputed by the administration. Quarles likely would assume the role vacated by Daniel Tarullo to oversee the nation's banking system. White House officials did not respond to a CNBC request for comment.

How to Stack Silhouettes in Photoshop Using Blending Modes "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Heres a 5-minute video by Tony & Chelsea Northrup that will teach you how to use Photoshop to stack multiple exposures of a moving silhouetted subject. The end result is a unique effect that conveys motion in an otherwise still image.

Northrup uses the example of a silhouetted bird flying through the sky, which is the perfect subject for this technique. The bird is duplicated many times across the image, showing its flight path.

To achieve the effect, first you must take photos of your subject in continuous shooting mode using a fast shutter speed, to ensure the moving subject is sharp. A tripod would be preferable to keep the framing constant, but going hand-held may be okay depending on the lighting.

Once youve imported your images to your editing software, make sure that any edits you make to them are the same for every image. Select all of the images, right click, and select Edit In > Open as Layers in Photoshop.

As long as you use a tripod for the shots, you can easily align them in Photoshop. Select all of the layers, then go to Edit > Auto Align Layers.

Finally, select all of your layers except the very bottom one, and change the Blending Mode to Darken. This will work well with the silhouettes, because it will compare to the base layer and show only the darker pixels in the blending layers.

Thats it! Its a very simple technique, and it demonstrates a creative use of the Darken Blend Mode. If youd like to learn more about Blend Modes in Photoshop, check out our earlier article, which goes in to depth on all 27 of them.

Readers from Italy have been contacting Health Impact News this past week, asking us to cover the massive demonstrations happening throughout Italy to protest a new mandatory vaccine law. This news has been censored from the U.S. corporate media.

Francesca Alesse, who worked with the VAXXED film team to get the film shown in Italy last year, writes:

In an unprecedented way, the decree-law proposed by the Minister of Health has been signed by the sitting Italian president Sergio Mattarella. Only four vaccines were mandatory in Italy, now that number triples to 12.

Polar Photographer Paul Nicklen on the Impacts of Climate Change "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

National Geographic photojournalist Paul Nicklen has spent decades documenting the Earths poles. In this 45-minute interview with NPR, he discusses the dangers of his work and the impact of climate change on the fragile, icy ecosystems that he photographs.

Nicklen is one of the worlds most acclaimed nature photographers, and has received over 30 of the highest awards given to any photographer in his field, including the BBC Wildlife photographer of the year and the prestigious World Press Photo for photojournalism.

Having spent the last 2 decades documenting the Arctic and the Antarctic, he has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share about the hostile regions, and he has watched them change over that time.

The slim black figures of the Northern Right whale dolphins break the metallic surface of the ocean as they travel. Unlike most dolphins, this species lacks a dorsal fin and has a well-defined but short beak. This unique body shape allows them to cut through the water like elegant torpedoes.

In the interview, Nicklen talks about one of his favorite images, which was taken in Svalbard and used by Al Gore to illustrate the impact of climate change.

We came around down behind the ice cap of Nordaustlandet at the north east ice cap of Svalbard just to get out of the wind from the storm. And as the light hit this ice face of the ice cap, to look back and to see not only was, you know, the outside temperature 68 degrees Fahrenheit, but to see 20 waterfalls in a row just gushing off the top of this ice cap.

WATCH: Man Almost Dies When He Shoots A Refrigerator Full Of Explosives "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

shoot

A viral video in which a man shoots a refrigerator door is causing an internet firestorm. The refrigerator is shown exploding after being shot with a rifle, and the door nearly ends the shooters life.

The man in the video obviously enjoys living life on the edge. The video posted on the Internet shows a man firing an what looks like an M-16 rifle at a refrigerator stocked with Tannerite. Tannerite is a widely sold and very popular exploding target specially geared toward gun owners. It consists of a mixture of ammonium nitrate and aluminum powder, is legal, and available at sporting-goods stores and websites. But its fair to say that it isnt meant to be packed inside a refrigerator with intentions to shoot said fridge.

Complete with his American flag handkerchief stuffed in his back pocket, the man takes aim and hits the refrigerator with a bullet, only to be almost hit by the door. The refrigerator explodes sending its door flying right past him on his left.

*There is some strong language in this video, and it may not be suitable for those at work.

The video went viral, generating over 515,000 views on YouTube.  Luckily, he was standing behind a tree, which afforded him a little bit of protection against the flying refrigerator door. The end of the video shows the men involved in this stunt walking toward the flaming remains of the exploded refrigerator.

Hes also told by his friends, That door was coming right for you, dude! But oddly, the man doing the shooting didnt seem like he was all that concerned that his life was on the line. He does, however, quickly remove himself from the path of the rogue door.

Perhaps because of his odd reaction, some seem to think this video is faked. One comment from an article written by...

The Fujifilm GFX 50Ss High ISO Quality is Insane "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The Fujifilm GFX 50Ss ISO invariance makes it so easy to shoot the Milky Way that its not even funny. I was able to take an impossible shot, capturing the Milky Way in the middle of Sydney, during a light festival, without bracketing on the Milky Way. The sensor captured so much info on the highlights that this was possible.

I took this 80MP composition three days ago:

When I acquired the Fujifilm GFX, I didnt know what to expect, or even whether I would keep it. After all, I already own a marvel of engineering: the Sony a7R II. My Sony never failed to deliver, even in some of the harshest and remotest places in this world. It also helped me to win an award from the World Photo Organisation. I couldnt be happier with it.

At first, when I was shooting in daylight, the Fuji GFX 50S was, image quality wise, a simple incremental step up from the marvelous Sony a7R II. And then I began testing the high ISO capabilities of this little monster.

Insane performance at High ISO

Below ISO 800, the camera carries a lot of information in the shadow and up to the highlight, like any other Sony sensor.

Beyond that ISO, however, the camera acts in a completely different way than what I expected from a Sony a7R II, Canon 5D Mark IV, or even a Phase One IQ3 100MP. I was able to recover so much highlight and associated color depth, the dynamic range remained constant between ISO 1600 and ISO 6400 (...

https://medium.com/media/ecf14c283c0dfa58f414a3ab7da6aa57/href

A growing percentage of people are working remotely. Collaborating with people around the globe is becoming the norm, rather than the exception. But our tools for collaborating havent quite caught up.

I should knowas the nonprofit guy at freeCodeCamp and creator of Open Source for Good, Ive spent the past two and a half years organizing hundreds of developers around the world to come together and code pro bono for nonprofits.

Together, our teams build free and open source software. Separately, we all have our own obligations. Most of us work, raise families, go to school, serve in our countrys military, or some combination of the above.

Were busy in different ways, and at different times.

And because freeCodeCamp is a global community, we almost never live in the same time zone.

So scheduling a call with, say, five people in five different countries is easier said than done.

Although there are a few web-based tools that try to help people schedule meetings, weve yet to find one thats easy to use, supports multiple timezones, and helps people find common availability.

Heres a good example of a bad solution:

Oh cool, let me go scrounging for a pen while you hold my event hostage.

Yeah, not great.

We set out to build this tool with one simple goal: to help people effortlessly schedule calls across multiple timezones.

And thats exactly what we did. Its called Meeting for Good. Weve been using it for months and its getting more polished every day. Youre welcome to use it too.

Sex & Bereavement {the 5 Fs} "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Sex.  The subject of it, is one of the most abandoned areas of need in the home of the bereaved couple.

Did you catch that?  Areas of need.

Sex is intended to be healthy, and is a healthful resource that the bereaved person and bereaved couple can draw from.  Sexual satisfaction can release all kinds of hormones and physiological responses that are powerful safeguards for couples, for personal psychological wellbeing and overall health and wellness.  One such hormone is oxytocin an ingredient as we look at the advantages of donation or other lactation options after pregnancy and infant loss, because the hormonal response can actually interrupt the strong cellular attacks we are subject to in the mist of fresh grief.

Grief by its nature can add dysfunction to the area of sex, from adding subtle challenges to downright blatant obstacles to it, and so it is vitally important that we address this.

So lets talk about it.

To frame this subject well, we start with Five Fs as a place to start.  If sex has become a challenge in your relationship since entering bereavement, lets look at the subject in this framework to break it down into smaller pieces, and there you can determine where your area(s) of greatest attack is.  Start with one.  Pick the one that speaks to you the most, and initiate gently and lovingly in that area.  You might even share this article with your spouse.

 

FUN

Sometimes, taking sexual engagement totally off the table is the best place to start.
Go back to having fun with your life partner.

  • Have a picnic together.
  • Go bowling.
  • Take a walk together.

 

FOREPLAY

Physical connection sometimes need to start off small.  Its a wooing, and not every touch needs to be specifically sexual in nature, but in simple fondness and affection.

  • Hand holding.
  • Massage or gentle touch.
  • Kissing.

 

FLIRT

Neither one of you may ever return to who you once were.  That is a devastating truth, but is a wonderful acknowledgement that your baby matters and has changed your life.  We can find the goodness here.

  • Praise your spouse publicly.
  • Thank your spouse.
  • Show active listening and interest in your spouses interests....

Ancient Romes System of Roads Visualized in the Style of Modern Subway Maps "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Sasha Trubetskoy, an undergrad at U. Chicago, has created a "subway-style diagram of the major Roman roads, based on the Empire of ca. 125 AD." Drawing on Stanfords ORBIS model, The Pelagios Project, and the Antonine Itinerary, Trubetskoy's map combines well-known historic roads, like the Via Appia, with lesser-known ones (in somes cases given imagined names). If you want to get a sense of scale, it would take, Trubetskoy tells us, "two months to walk on foot from Rome to Byzantium. If you had a horse, it would only take you a month."

You can view the map in a larger format here. And if you follow this link and send Trubetskoy a few bucks, he promises to email you a crisp PDF for printing. Enjoy.

Jewelry Designed to Look Like Fashionable Dragon Scale Armor "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Dragon Scale

Artisans Xaria Knight and Bryan Poole of Pixie Shadow Craft create wearable art for the modern day warrior. Combining traditional fabrication techniquesthink Medieval chain mailwith a contemporary aesthetic, they produce dragon scale armor, gloves, and harnesses for use in cosplay or as a statement-making addition to your everyday attire.

The result excites the eye while remaining practical; chain mail offers structural integrity and ensures that the designs hug the body in all the right places.

By contrast, the dragon scales are glitzy and stylish. Their iridescent coloring adds a sculptural effect to the cosplay fashion that looks elegant and feels regal.

Researchers recently discovered a new species of biofluorescent turtle in the Solomon Islands, and cinematographer Andy Casagrandes team utilised Canons ME20F-SH Multipurpose Camera to take some unique footage of the critically endangered turtle species at a remote coral reef.

The short video shows off the capabilities of the full-frame 2.2-megapixel sensor, which Canon says enables researchers, professional photographers, cinematographers and enthusiasts to shoot impactful clear and crisp imagery, even when masked in darkness due to extremely low-light conditions.

In the making of video below, Casagrande talks about using the viewfinder as a scouting tool to help him see underwater without disturbing the natural environment, although the footage does show the use of a large lighting rig.

Secret Show Shouldve Been Kept That Way "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

INDIANAPOLIS A secret show last Tuesday at local DIY venue The Outhouse plagued by violent moshing, clouds of firework smoke, and outraged neighbors would have been best left as a secret, according to bewildered attendees.

We dont want anyone experiencing something like that again, said Patrick Plunger Haynes, Outhouse leaseholder and the shows booker. At one point, we had a crew of naked guys throwing roundhouse kicks and demanding piggyback rides from everyone. I mean, there was junk swinging everywhere. I dont even think they came for the music.

The well-attended show quickly grew past the venues capacity of 75 shortly after the opening band, the Fornic8ors, began their set. Weve never played for this many people, let alone on a Tuesday night, said guitarist Chad Chud Crowley. And they were wild. That one really tall guy punched a bunch of holes in the ceiling. It was insane.

Witnesses reported overflow from the show spilled into the parking lot of the 24-hour Arbys across the street.

[The lot] was littered with show flyers and half-smoked cigarettes from the night before, said Arbys night manager Andy Calhoun. These kids went into our bathrooms and came out with freshly cut jean shorts, or left behind stickers and shitty zines about factory farming. Im sick of cleaning up their mess.

The show featured sets from locals Pollen Count, The Indianapolis Kvlts, and Ninth Circle, each with their own complications. Attendees later confirmed several bloody noses, an MRSA outbreak, four blown fuses, and a lack of small bills at the merch table.

The toilet overflowed before the first band set up, said showgoer Ellen St. James. Venue bathrooms are always kind of gross, but this looked like you needed a hazmat team.

Police reportedly responded to a noise complaint around 12:20 a.m., which only added to the disappointment.

That was the worst part the cops didnt even hassle us, said Haynes. They just told us to keep it down and have a fun time. They actually fucking waved and smiled as they drove off. Fuckin pigs didnt even pick up the guys lighting fi...

How the New Bowery Wall Commission Puts Rape Culture on Display "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

David Choe painting his mural (photo by the author for Hyperallergic)

Last week, well-known muralist David Choe painted New York Citys iconic Houston and Bowery wall. Did everyone forget that this guy openly bragged about raping a woman a few years ago? Does that not matter at all?

In 2014, Choe spoke in vivid detail on his podcast DVDASA about an experience he had at an LA massage parlor where he forced his masseuse to give him a blowjob. In his recounting, Choe said, She has given me no signs that shes into me or that this is appropriate behavior. So I go back to the chill method of you never ask first, you just do it, get in trouble and then pay the price later. After Choe finished his story, his co-host, adult film actress Asa Akira, said, You raped [her]. Choe responded that he considered his actions to have been rapey behavior but not actual rape. But the thrill of possibly going to jail, thats what achieved the erection quest, responded Choe. Akira pressed, Youre basically telling us that youre a rapist now and the only way to get your dick really hard is rape. To this, Choe responded simply, Yeah.

While he later claimed that his confession was simply bad storytelling in the style of douche, its still pretty fucked up. Even if its an embellished anecdote, its still one abou...

BTC.com Wallet Tries Discounting Some Priority Transaction Fees "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/2sHy33I

BTC.com Wallet Tries Discounting Some Priority Transaction Fees

Bitmain subsidiary BTC.com is now offering its wallet users discounted priority transactions. Though currently still a beta feature, this will let BTC.com users pay some 94 percent less in fees for three transactions each month to have them confirm faster. The funds allocated toward the discounted transaction fees will be subsidized by the BTC.com Wallet.  

The new service comes at a time when transaction fees on the Bitcoin network are reaching all-time highs.

Speaking on recent transaction fees reaching all-time highs, and how it may impact potential Bitcoin adopters, BTC.coms Alejandro De La Torre told Bitcoin Magazine:

The effect of rising tx costs mostly affects the perception of bitcoin to new users. They might think its too expensive or might use a low tx fee and have their bitcoin transaction confirm in a very long time. Both scenarios are not good for adoption.

This is not the first time that bitcoin wallets have offered discounted transaction fees. Many wallets have previously paid for transaction fees on behalf of users, but stopped doing so recently (such as Coinbase and Xapo), said De La Torre.

BTC.com is currently the only bitcoin wallet that also serves as a fully operational mining pool, currently controlling approximately 7 percent of hash power on the Bitcoin network.

The Scalability Problem

The Bitcoin community has been embroiled in arguments over the best solution to scale the network for years now. Perhaps the most popular solution is Segregated Witness, a soft fork protocol upgrade proposed by the Bitcoin Core development team. Bitmain in particular has explicitly stated their refusal to implement SegWit if its not combined with a hard fork increase of the block size limit, and its pools which include the BTC.com mining pool have enough signaling power to block SegWits activation.

As for solutions to the scalability issue, BTC.com is supporting Segwit2x. Segwit2x is a hybrid of the solutions proposed above: It implements SegWit followed six months later by a hard fork increase in the block size limit from 1 to 2 MB.

Photographer Zwelethu Mthethwa Gets 18 Years In Jail For Murder "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Zwelethu Mthethwa, a well-known South African photographer, has been sentenced to 18 years in jail after being found guilty of the 2013 murder of a sex worker in Cape Town.

Warning: Graphic photo below.

Mthethwa is known as one of South Africas most famous artists, with over 35 solo exhibitions internationally. His work has been exhibited at high-profile venues such as the Museum of Modern Art and the International Centre of Photography, New York; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; and at the Venice Biennale.

Members of SWEAT await the sentencing of Mthethwa

In March, Mthethwa was found guilty of beating to death 23 year-old sex worker Nokuphila Kumalo. The 18-year sentence warranted more than the 15-year minimum due to its callousness, cruelty and brutality, according to Judge Patricia Goliath.

The strong sentence was welcomed by The Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT) and the Sisonke National Movement of Sex Workers in South Africa, who said: A sentence of 18 years was handed down. We applaud the court seeing fit to exceed the minimum sentence of 15 years.

Spiritual Sex: A Different Kind Of Intimacy "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Spiritual sex is a way for enlightenment

Spiritual sex and spirituality mean different things to different people. For some, it may be just a way of releasing stress and for some it means exploring different dimensions and meanings.

Spiritual sex can be a way to attain a higher level of spirituality. There are different ways to reach there. Many follow different paths and we can show you a few ways to achieve this destination.

Meditative sex

It is not just casual sex. The intercourse is very deep, loving and long. Being in deep embrace, silent and non-moving, the lovers can reach the pinnacle of orgasm and enlightenment. The easiest way is to forget that sex is the objective. Viewing it as sex can hamper the whole process. Letting it flow and being aware of the sensations is the key.

Tantric sex

Everyone has heard of this term. Couples who have tried tantric sex claim to have a better and a more fulfilling experience. This type of sex has a lot to do with exchange of energies and increases your sexual experience. Sexual connect with yourself and your partner improves with tantric sex and the way to enlightenment will draw closer.

Sexual union

Sexual energy is the most powerful energy that activate the chakras of the body. Sex is not the solution and never will be. Sexual union is the way to feeling united and going deeper into your conscience. This type of union requires concentration on the exchange of energy and once the union is complete, the end result is something worth waiting for.

After-glow

The glow after reaching the orgasm is real. It is scientifically proven. Serotonin is released from the brain while the act is on which gives us a feeling of euphoria. After reaching the highest point you can, leaving or moving away from your partner is not the way. An embrace which lasts long, a cuddle which is loving and a smile which is reassuring should be the way to end the act. The way to enlightenment is not simple. There are many ways and types of achieving it. After all, sex is a wonderful way to reach that goal with your partner.

A Hairstylist and Chefs Maximalist Atlanta, GA Rental "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

A Hairstylist and Chef's Maximalist Atlanta, GA Rental, Design*Sponge

Hands down, my favorite approach to decorating is maximalism. No rules, no demands and no fear? Im in. What I love most about houses designed with this mindset is how theyre equal parts visually arresting and evocative, the latter being where their true power lies. Peek inside any maximalist home, and immediately your mood will change. You might get excited, whisper Wow! and that heart rate of yours may start to ramp up as you soak in inspiring room after inspiring room. Such is the case with hairstylist Augusta Isabelle Wheeler and her husband Garretts vibrant Victorian. The sheer volume of decorations in their strategically-mismatched Atlanta, GA home has helped them turn its dial from meh to max.

The look comes together largely thanks to layers of sentimental mementos. The dining area, for example, acts more like a museum of the couples wedding day than a room. Family portraits from the event, Augustas flower crown and a table runner from the reception are just a few of the coveted items scattered about its table and walls. The couple says that each and every accessory, in its own way, brings to mind a different memory and makes dining-in one of the their favorite pastimes.

Incorporated with these memories is a collection of enviable vintage furniture and other finds, 90% of which was hunted down at affordable thrift shops. As if the inherent patina that comes with secondhand goods wasnt enough, making them even more unique is the colorful twist Augusta has put on them. Whether its a fireplace given a lime makeover or a dresser decked out in coral and green, none of these items blend in, and all of them are fabulous. The best part of these makeovers, though, has to be the happiness they infuse into the space.

All in all, the zippiness of Augusta and Garretts home not only inspires us, but aims to inspire their children as well. Simply put, the creative duo hopes the out-of-the-box style they used in the home shows the kiddos that Mom and Dad are fearless, and encourag...

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe rests beneath a simple granite marker designed by his architect grandson Dirk Lohan; Daniel Burnham is remembered with a large boulder on a lake island; and Louis Sullivan is interred at a formidable granite monument with skyscraper-esque carvings. Amid this burial ground of big names in American architecture, I was surprised to see a familiar glimmer of blue rising from the green grass. It was a shard of aquamarine cullet retrieved from the charred ruins of Bruce Goffs ShinenKan house in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, my hometown.

In 2000, almost two decades after Goffs death in 1982, his ashes were relocated to this marker designed by a former student, Grant Gustafson. It was not the city where he was born or died, yet Goffs friends and followers considered the Chicago cemetery to be a fitting place for the architect to be interred, alongside these...

Extinction in the wild looms for two California fish (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Over at the California Water Blog, UC Davis fish biologists Peter Moyle and Jason Baumsteiger observe that two species of California fish one small and the other big appear to be on the verge of imminent extinction in the wild. The delta smelt (Hypomesus transpacificus) and the winter-run Chinook or king salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) have long been in dire straits. The plight of these two hapless species symbolizes how biodiversity and wild nature in California are being pummeled by a human population now numbering nearly 40 million. In stark contrast, only six tiny smelts, the lowest number ever recorded, were counted in a survey by state fishery biologists in 2015; in previous years, up to several hundred had been netted. The human population in California, in both its rural and urban manifestations, is exerting an ever-greater load on the environment in this case, via ever-increasing competition for the precious and all-too-limited resource, water. At the moment, California is bathing in water after the wettest winter on record, but we all know that wont last. The state has always been plagued by multi-year droughts, but climate modelers predict that it may be punished by a terrifying scenario of longer-lasting megadroughts in the future.

Shooting the Holi Festival in India with a Fuji X-T2 and Underwater Housing "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

When packing your gear bag for a two-week street photography trip, the last thing you might think to bring is an underwater housing. Most of the time you would be completely right to leave that item at home. But if your trip happens to be going to India during the celebration of Holi, an underwater housing may just be the protection you need.

For those that dont know, Holi is a yearly event celebrating the coming of spring and good over evil. The entire event consists of throwing colored powder in the air, throwing it directly at people, and rubbing it on peoples faces. In addition to the colored powder, people also throw water balloons, spray people with hoses, and even dump large buckets of water from the roof tops onto the passing people below.

Most photographers at this event relied on a combination of plastic bags and duct tape to protect their gear. While this may be a decent form of protection, it doesnt really inspire confidence. It also wont protect your gear from the more intense moments of the festival if you plan to get into the thick of the action.

One of the biggest benefits of using the underwater housing is that I was able to completely forget about keeping my gear safe from my surrounding conditions. There were times where the housing was overkill for what was going on and it would have been nice to use just the camera. But because you never really know whats going to be around the corner, I decided to shoot 100% of the time with the housing installed. This freed me from constantly needing to wonder if there was too much powder or water in an area. Instead, I was able to simply follow my eye and concentrate on making images.

The reason why I went with the Fuji X-T2 over a traditional DSLR is because the smaller camera allowed for a smaller housing. After the housing is installed, it feels a lot like the size of a DSLR. I also love the ability to shoot with an EVF and at 1/32000 shutter speeds. Because the housing limited what camera funct...

Murdoch says you can vote now "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Our benevolent overlord, Rupert Murdoch, has granted a day of democracy for the collective chattel provided, of course, they vote for his preferred minion. To help us in our decision, the Murdoch papers have been running a myriad of headlines, including Its my May Way or the Highway, Corbyn makes terrorist jam or the more abrasive Vote Tory or Ill f$ck your Mum. Reporters will be on hand at polling stations throughout the day, to help fill in ballots. While Mr. Murdochs news channels will be providing extensive coverage of Theresa May healing sick puppies, alongside stirring footage of the Dambusters bombing IS.

WW3 Approaches, North Korea Launches 4 Anti-Ship Missiles "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

norkor-kim1

North Korea fired four anti-ship missiles into the sea east of the Korean Peninsula Thursday. The South Korean military said this new test was intended to demonstrate North Koreas advancements in precise targeting capability.

As tensions continue to rise between the United States and the rogue nation of North Korea, the missile tests conducted also continue. This is now Kim Jong-Uns fourth missile test in one month, as the volatile North Korean dictator continues to balk at the United Nations sanctions against his country. In fact, this is the nations first missile test since the UN implemented more, harsher, sanctions on the fascist nation.

South Koreas joint chiefs said the projectiles, launched near the eastern port city of Wonsan, were believed to be surface-to-ship cruise missiles. We assess that North Korea intended to show off its various missile capabilities, display its precise targeting capability, in the form of armed protests against ships in regard to US Navy carrier strike groups and joint naval drills, Roh Jae-cheon, a spokesman for South Koreas Joint Chiefs of Staffs told reporters.

The missiles went about 200 kilometers (124 miles), South Koreas military said in a statement, adding the US military was undertaking a more detailed analysis. Our military has strengthened surveillance and alertness readiness in cases of additional provocation by [the] North Korean military and is maintaining all readiness posture while we are tracking and monitoring [the] related situation, the statement read.

Photographer Captures Beautiful Symmetrical Shots of Libraries Around the World "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Library Photos Interiors Architecture Thibaud Poirer

Bibliothque Nationale de France, Salle Labrouste, Paris, 1868

As evident in his symmetrical shots of Berlin's beautiful architecture, Paris-based photographer Thibaud Poirer knows how to expertly capture interiors. In his latest series, Libraries, Poirer offers a gorgeous glimpse inside some of the world's most unique reading rooms.

Like his past work, Libraries presents the symmetrical beauty and diverse decorative styles of various institutions' interiors. Some, like Biblioteca Joanina in Coimbra, Portugal and Bibliothque de la Sorbonne in Paris, France feature ornate architecture inspired by a classical aesthetic. Others, including Germany's Grimm Zentrum Library and Stadtbibliothek, convey an entirely modern approach to design. Ultimately, regardless of style, each library boasts an appearance that is both awe-inspiring and deeply historic.

As particularly evident in Libraries, Poirer's portfolio is molded by his diverse collection of cultural experiences. Though he has now settled in picturesque Paris, he has lived in many places around the globe. I have spent most of my life experiencing other cities and cultures across the world, he explains on his website. I've called Buenos Aires, Houston, Montreal, and Tokyo home to name a few. Some of these cities are even featured in Libraries, illustrating his resonance and deep connection with these sites.

To capture each striking shot, Poirer uses a Canon 6D camera with 17mm and 24mm TS-E lenses. According to the photo...

CBD Can Improve Schizophrenia Symptoms, Study Finds "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Brandon Turbeville

As the DEA continues to label marijuana and even the non-psychoactive cannabidiol oil (CBD) as being the same as heroin in terms of its health effects, addictive qualities and side effects, the real world also continues to exist outside of the walls of Washington, D.C. and mindless drug war proponents.

As jackboots continue to march on so does science and public opinion. Nearly every day a new marijuana-related potential cure appears on the scene. Whether its cancer or multiple sclerosis, the humble plant is offering to cure and relieve a plethora of diseases if the police state and bureaucrats would just get the hell out of the way.

The latest in a long line of diseases that could potentially be cured by marijuana is schizophrenia. Although affecting only about 1.1 percent of the American population, that small percentage translate to about 3.5 million people.

Triggertrap Open Sources Its Mobile Apps Days After Its Hardware "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Following the winding down of its business, Triggertrap has followed through on its promise to open-source its mobile apps and hardware. This could mean that the product will live on, despite Triggertraps demise.

The Mobile Dongle was open-sourced last month, allowing its customers to build their own Triggertrap hardware. The dongle is just one part of the system the other is the mobile applications.

While the apps are still available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, the company will no longer maintain them. This means that they are liable to break in the future, as Apple and Google release updates to iOS and Android.

By making the source code public, Triggertrap hopes that the open-source community will continue to keep the apps working in to the future.

Triggertraps former CTO Ross Gibson has decided to continue developing the iOS app in his own time, and any contributions to the software will be published to the Apple App Store by him for the foreseeable future.

As of the time of writing, Triggertrap has not found anyone to continue to maintain the Android software.

Contraction of Total Cryptocurrency Market Cap May Be Inevitable "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Contraction of Total Cryptocurrency Market Cap May Be Inevitable Towards End of 2017

The total market capitalization of all cryptocurrency markets has exceeded $100 billion USD following bitcoins recent establishment of new all-time price highs, in tandem with dramatic value increases in most altcoins.

Also Read: Bitcoin Markets Increasingly Reflect Global Transition Towards The Asian Century

The Total Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization Has Now Surpassed Major Companies Such As Ford And Delta Airlines.

The milestone of the cryptocurrency markets attaining $100 billion status has been largely attributed to bitcoins impressive growth in Asia during recent months, with bitcoins market cap representing approximately 45% of the total cryptocurrency markets. Since the beginning of 2017 the price of a single bitcoin has tripled, creating an all-time high of over $2900USD on Bitstamp.

Over the last 7 years Bitcoins price has grown by an average of 0.3% daily, culminating in Bitcoins current market cap of over $45bnUSD, renders the digital currency of comparable size to Tesla who currently boast a $50bnUSD market cap. With Bitcoin steadily continuing to absorb capital from new markets, this trend may continue to hold up over the longer term. New investors should exercise caution in interpreting these facts as evidence of Bitcoins inevitable unending price ascension, as the price of a single bitcoin has gone up over 1000% since 2015.

Arsenal Tops $1 Million on Kickstarter for Its Smart Camera Helper "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

It looks like there are many photographers who want an intelligent camera assistant that helps determine optimal camera settings. Arsenal, the camera add-on that promises to offer just that, has just blown past the $1 million mark in crowdfunding on Kickstarter.

Over 6,000 backers have pledged $150 or more in hopes that the sleek hot shoe attachment will help them shoot better photos.

In case you didnt see news of the products unveiling the first time around, heres how Arsenal describes itself:

Arsenal is the worlds first intelligent assistant for DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Ultralight hardware lets you wirelessly control your camera with an intuitive iOS or Android app. And advanced machine learning algorithms help you get the perfect shot every time.

The device connects to your DSLR or mirrorless camera via USB and communicates wirelessly with your iOS or Android smartphone (it can also act as a smart remote camera control). It then uses 18 different environmental factors to figure out the best camera settings for each situation using a convolutional deep neural network, and then helps you shoot better photos, focus stacked shots, time-lapses, and more.

If these claims intrigue you, you can join in on the craze on the Arsenal Kickstarter page. Be warned, though: other photography projects with similar scope and success have failed on Kickstarter before.

The Philippines, a nation rich in precious metals, encounters powerful opposition to mining "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

DIDIPIO, Philippines Before OceanaGold began to systematically remove any trace that Dinkidi Mountain ever existed in northern Luzons Sierra Madre range, 100 farmers raised rice and citrus crops on farmland they had cleared in the mountains shadow. Didipio was a village of 700 residents, many of whom settled on Dinkidis east side in the 1960s and 1970s after walking, with their children in tow, for two days on steep forest trails. In many ways Didipio was a rare place of hard work and solitude, a village difficult to reach by vehicle or on foot, and distant from the mainstream of Philippine life. Many of those settlers a minority in a village that today has 3,000 residents blame Australian-Canadian mining company OceanaGold for ending Didipios era of agrarian calm. Starting with construction in 2011, it took just two years for the company to replace Dinkidi with an open-pit gold and copper mine nearly a kilometer in diameter and nearly 300 meters (~1,000 feet) deep. Millions of tons of mine waste forms a perimeter of terraced rock around half of the mine. Above that is a green lagoon filled with liquid tailings, spreading over more than 100 hectares (~250 acres) where rice was once cultivated.

Anamorphic project by Elian in Saint Gervais, France "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Elian has recently finished his latest project in one of Saint Gervais parking lots. The artist has used the parking lot as a space creation tool and during the week he has covered around two square kilometers of concrete in acrylic paint. The project is called Using Painting for Sculptural Purposes and it was curated by Hugues Chavallier and Zoer.

My work in this parking lot is based on painting as a space creation tool. As we well know, the main feature of sculpture is the relationship with its spatial environment and the ability to modify it.
This artwork, which uses the basic geometry and primary colors, makes use of the architectural factors where it inhabits, in order that each element adopts a new function and that the space becomes a huge sculpture.
The relationship with the environment is not easy to achieve, therefore not only the walls will be intervened, but the painting will invade everything that you find in your way in order to offer to the users of the parking, the possibility of breathing inside Of a work of art.
I find it interesting that a person in his usual routine becomes a spectator / user of a work of art, I think it is an unexpected encounter with creativity.

This Teacher Is Trying To Change The Education System And Empower Children In Every Way Possible "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 

Help Me Change the Education System

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.

Watch a Surreal 1953 Animation of Edgar Allan Poes Tell-Tale Heart, Voted the 24th Best Cartoon of All Time "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Animation studio UPAUnited Productions of Americais best known these days as the studio that gave us Mr. Magoo and Gerald McBoing Boing (which inspired a certain website). But the studio, originally created by three former Disney employees, wanted to broaden horizons back in the 1950s, and created this quite disturbing adaptation of Edgar Allan Poes The Tell Tale Heart, narrated by the venerable James Mason.

Due to its adult subject matter, it was the first animated film to receive an X rating
(or "suitable for those aged 16 and over") in the UK. Though not intended for children, many undoubtedly saw the film as kids and were profoundly affected by it. The film, designed by Paul Julian, borrows both from Dali-esque surrealism and German expressionism.


And while it does feature some traditional cell animation, theres a mix of techniques that keep the film in the realm of the dreamlike and avant-garde: sudden zooms, shadows that fade in and out, flattened perspectives, inventive use of chiaroscuro. In this film one can see both the future careers of Roger Corman and Dario Argento, both grabbing influences left and right.

In fact, though designer Paul Julian is best known for his background work at Warner Bros. animation studios (he also is known as the creator of the Road Runners beep-beep sound), he wound up providing director Roger Corman with artwork for movies like Dementia 13 and The Terror.

UPA continued to produce films with its modern and flat space-age aesthetic during the 50s, but it never really hit these adult heights again. The 60s however, would pick up from where UPA left off.

Julian's The Tell Tale Heart was voted the 24th greatest cartoon of all time, in a 1994 survey of 1,ooo animation professionals. It was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into disturbia. It will be added to our list of Free Animations, a subset of our collection, 1,150 Free Movies Online: Great Classics...

A Look Inside Europes Most Enchanting Libraries by Photographer Thibaud Poirier "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Trinity College Library, Dublin, 1732

Over the last year, photographer Thibaud Poirier has traveled across Europe to photograph some of the worlds most incredible libraries. The series includes both historic and contemporary libraries with a special emphasis on the varied designs employed by architects. Poirier captured each image when the buildings were closed and empty of people to focus entirely on structure and layout. From his statement about the project:

Like fingerprints, each architect crafted his vision for a new space for this sacred self-exploration. These seemingly minute details are everywhere, from the balance of natural and artificial light to optimise reading yet preserve ancient texts to the selective use of studying tables to either foster community or encourage lonely reflection. The selection of these libraries that span space, time, style and cultures were carefully selected for each ones unique ambiance and architectural contribution.

So far Poirier has photographed 25 libraries and says he intends to add to the series as time permits. If you liked this, also check out his Berlin Interiors series.

Children Now Face Fines And Arrest If They Dont Get a Permit To Mow Grass For Money "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Jay Syrmopoulos

Gardendale, AL A regular summer right of passage for motivated teenagers across the United States in search of some extra spending money has always been cutting the neighbors grass. However, teens in Gardendale, Alabama, and many other cities across the United States, are about to get a rude lesson in how government overregulation stifles personal and financial growth.

Local officials and area law services have reportedly warned area teens that without a business license issued by the city, which costs $110, they are in violation of a city ordinance, thus violating the law, if they attempt to cut grass without a license.

Its patently absurd that local teenagers cant make a private agreement with a neighbor to mow a lawn without the government sanctioning the transaction by inserting themselves as the arbiter of who is allowed to legitimately cut grass.

Vaquita survival hinges on stopping international swim bladder trade "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

[caption id="attachment_196444" align="alignright" width="402"] Totoaba maws, or swim bladders, for sale in China. Photo courtesy of the Elephant Action League[/caption] New evidence lays out the intricate trade in animal body parts that conservation groups say are driving two marine species in Mexicos Gulf of California closer to extinction. The battle to save them will have to be fought on fronts in several countries. The vaquita (Phocoena sinus), a tiny porpoise that averages just 43 kilograms (95 pounds) and 1.5 meters (5 feet), is the worlds most endangered cetacean, a group that includes whales and dolphins. In large measure, that's because they share their habitat with a fish called the totoaba (Totoaba macdonaldi) in a small slice of the Sea of Cortez between mainland Mexico and the Baja California peninsula. Gillnets intended for totoaba, as well as other fish, efficiently ensnare vaquita. Their numbers have plunged by 90 percent since 2011, according to a recent report by the conservation group WWF. Surging demand in China for the totoaba's swim bladder, or maw, which helps the fish to float, is driving the harvest, sweeping up vaquita in the process, according to the report from WWF and a separate investigation by the watchdog group Elephant Action League. The totoaba itself is a Critically Endangered species according to the IUCN. To protect the vaquita, the organizations argue for a multinational effort to stop the flow of totoaba maws out of Mexico and through countries such as the U.S., as well as curbing the demand

Theresa May votes Lib Dem "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In an unexpected change of heart, Theresa May has voted Liberal Democrat. Casting her ballot in her constituency of Permanent Maidenhead, Mrs May apparently felt doubtful about the efficacy of the Conservative campaign and the Prime Ministers competence to rule.

Asked by exit pollsters how she voted, Mrs May admitted she had chosen to support the local Liberal Democrat candidate, Brian Chancer, saying: Although Id been intending to vote Conservative, as I always have since Tony Blair left office, once I was in the polling booth I had a last-minute change of heart.

I felt that the PM had been flip-flopping and I think she is weak on security and immigration. She didnt seem strong and stable at all, which surprised me. Well, I couldnt bring myself to vote for Jeremy Corbyn, so it had to be Lib Dem. I know they are anti Brexit, but then so was I initially, so it wasnt too much of a wrench. I suppose you could call it a protest vote as I know they wont get in. But I am fed up with the Tories taking my support for granted.

Some pollsters are predicting a hung parliament. Shares in noose manufacturing companies have soared in value today.

How Chiropractic Can Help With Your Pregnancy and Birth "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Pregnancy and Birthing Without FearMorning sickness. Vomiting. Nausea. Back pain. Pelvic pain. Shortness of breath. Hormones gone wild. High blood pressure. Swollen ankles.

These symptoms are seen as normal during pregnancy, something you better get used to for the next 38-42 weeks. You wanted a baby, now deal with it. Right?

Wrong. Sure these examples are common among pregnant women, but the intensity or even the presence of these symptoms will greatly diminish if under chiropractic care.

Why?

The nervous system controls all in your body. Under the direction of your bodys Innate Intelligence, the nervous system will adapt to the changes brought on by a growing new life inside of you. This new life you carry has its own Innate Intelligence that will do whatever it must to preserve the health and well being of itself. This will come at your expense, causing a number of deficiencies that your body will have no choice but to adapt to.

The presence of a vertebral subluxation will interfere with the nervous systems ability to communicate back and forth with the body. The subluxation will result in three things:

1.) Body Imbalance a subluxation at your atlas will tilt your head to one side. Your brain has a reflex called the righting reflex which keeps your eyes level with the horizon. This will cause your lower cervical spine to bend the opposite way of your head tilt. To compensate, your thoracic spine will bend the opposite way, then the opposite way in the lumbar spine, resulting in one side of your pelvis being drawn up and causing one leg to appear shorter than the other, as well as an uneven distribution of weight putting undue stress on the joints. An unevenly aligned pelvis during pregnancy can be incredibly painful, as well as problematic for the baby trying to get into a proper birthing position.

10 Amazing Pink Bars and Restaurants "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

10 Amazing Pink Bars and Restaurants | Design*Sponge

When I was little, pink used to be my absolute favorite color. My love for it turned into an obsession, and I refused to wear anything that wasnt frilly or between pale blush and hot pink. Eventually, and in my opinion luckily, I grew out of it.

Now that Im older and my interests have slowly shifted from tutus to interiors, Im happy to say that Ive found pink again. The reason why Im particularly fond of pink is its versatility it goes so well with so many colors! Pink and navy is a classic pairing that never fails, and need I mention pink and green, the color combination that just keeps on giving?

Many of us here at Design*Sponge are big fans of pink, and what has really caught our eye lately is the amount of bars and restaurants that have embraced pink wholeheartedly, whether combined with other beautiful hues or used entirely on its own. To share the love, weve gathered 10 incredible spaces that have jumped on the pink bandwagon. They prove just how wonderful our favorite color can be! Sofia

Stories from a Once Culturally Vibrant, Now Neglected Miami Neighborhood "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A Peoples History of Overtown, Vol. 1 by Jacob Katel (2016) (all images by and courtesy of Jacob Katel unless otherwise noted)

MIAMI When you wanna get sun and sand, where you gonna go? To Miami, says the American soul singer Jerry Butler, looking back on when he performed at Miami Beach hotels in the 1950s and 60s. The conflict was, here you were trying to get to the beach and the people in the heart of the city were trying to see you there and it was racism that kept the two from meeting. The people in the heart of the city were the folks who lived in neighborhoods like Overtown and Liberty City, most of whom were racially segregated from whiter, wealthier Miami Beach.

This quote appears in Jacob Katels A Peoples History of Overtown, Vol. 1, a self-published series of interviews with the people whove come to define the Miami neighborhood. Butler crystallizes both Overtowns status as a soul-music mecca and its fraught history. In the 1950s and 60s, black musicians who performed in Miami Beach where they were not allowed to sleep stayed in Overtown instead, often performing at local venues late into the evening. Says Overtowns former advisory board chairman and unofficial mayor Irby McKnight, These white men and womenused to ride the Grey Line bus tour and get dropped off right here. They said there was the show on Miami Beach in the hotels, but afterwards in Overtown, there was the show.

The Threat Of An Asteroid Striking Earth Is Higher Than Originally Thought "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

asteroid

New research from a team of Czech scientists, which discovered new asteroids traveling around our planet, suggests that the risk of earth being hit by one of those extraterrestrial rocks is increasing. The likelihood of an asteroid striking Earth increased after the team studied 144 large meteors from the Taurids, a meteor stream  the very stream which appears in our skies twice a year. Most of these asteroids are small and pose no real threat. But some are alarming in size.

The team of Czech scientists discovered a new branch of the Taurid stream phenomenon containing at least two asteroids measuring a whopping 200-300 meters (220-330 yards) in diameter. This branch likely includes even larger undiscovered asteroids, according to a statement from the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic.

The Taurid meteoroid stream produces at least four meteor showers over Earth. Two of those streams are active from the end of September until the beginning of December, and two from the end of May to the middle of July. Earth encounters the newly discovered branch every few years for about three weeks. Scientists say that during this time, the chance of an impact with a sizeable asteroid (measuring up to tens of meters) is significantly greater. The new digital autonomous observatories of the European Fireball Network spotted the fireballs over Czech Republic (at 13 stations), Austria (1 station) and Slovakia (1 station).

The meteors analyzed by the Czech astronomy team were from a 2015 study when the streams activity was enhanced. Details of the study are pub...

This World Oceans Day, protect oceans from mining "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

This week, delegates from around the world are meeting at the United Nations for the first UN Oceans Conference, to discuss the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14: the conservation of oceans, seas and marine resources.  

We are subjecting our oceans to a barrage of assaults, many of which we are all familiar with - rising temperatures, overfishing, acidification. Less well-known are the dual threats to oceans from mining: the ongoing pollution of marine ecosystems by mine waste and the irreversible harm to deep-sea ecosystems that would result from proposed deep-seabed mining.  

Mining pollution

Each year, mining companies dump more than 180 million tonnes of hazardous mine waste into oceans, rivers, and lakes worldwide. This is an out-of-sight, out-of-mind problem - mining corporations are using the cheapest solution to disposing of the massive amounts of waste generated at their mining operations. Earthworks has documented some of the egregious examples of marine mine waste disposal in a report, Troubled Waters. Mine waste dumping in oceans has led to reduced populations of fish and bottom-dwelling organisms in Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. In Norway, mine tailings are being dumped into designated national salmon fjords, which support huge fishing and tourism industries.

Deep-sea mining

Lurking around the corner is another serious threat to oceans from mining. Deep-sea mining is a high-risk, experimental industrial activity being proposed in one of the most fragile, unexplored areas of our planet. Companies from a number of countries including the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, China -- are seeking to mine metals from cobalt crusts, manganese nodules, and hydrothermal vents on the seafloor. As yet, there are no viable deep-sea mining operations but many companies and governments are actively lobbying for that to change.

A United Nations-established body, the International Seabed Authority, is charged with regulating and granting exploration permits for deep seabed mining in waters outside national jurisdictions. It is currently in the process of developing regulations for deep-sea mining - but to date, these have been far from protective, and quite insubstantial.

Leading up to the UN Oceans Conference, ocean advocates from across the globe have joined to oppose deep-seabed m...

More Reasons Why Big Pharmas Multinational Vaccine Manufacturers are not to be Trusted "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Gary G. Kohls, MD, guest to Natural Blaze

Although I have just been doing my scholarly, unbiased, science-based duty to warn (that is in direct opposition to the highly biased, indeed perverted, corporate science of Big Pharma that we all know is really in the game just because of the money), I have just received my first death threat. It came in the form of a blog post at Transcend Media Services, a European peace and justice website that regularly publishes my Duty to Warn articles.

Knowing the truth of the old phrase You Know Youre Over the Target, When Youre Catching Flak, when I receive attacks about something I wrote that is firmly backed up by irrefutable science, I feel motivated to continue doing my part to bring some truth to the seriously compromised healthcare non-system of America, which has been usurped by corporate entities such as Big Pharma, Big Insurance and Big Finance that meet the definition of sociopathic personalities.

But, knowing the history of how progressive movements are usually stifled before they acquired power, it bothers me when I recall that so many prophetic voices throughout history have been silenced by death threats, by ad hominem attacks, by character assassinations, by smear campaigns, by threats of being fired from their jobs and, if the hero persists, actual assassination attempts (include being suicided) that come from entities that have hidden, but very ruthless agendas.

There are many progressive whistle-blowers and groups that many of us admire for doing courageous duty in the face of organized police state violence. Think suffragettes, anti-slavery abolitionist activists, antiwar activists, civil rights activists, feminist movement activists, gay rights activists, environmentalists, native American water protectors, etc, etc...

Tea Creates Gene Changes in Women "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Recent Study Links Tea to Epigenetic Changes in Women

Uppsala University recently published the results of a new study in the Human Molecular Genetics journal in which researchers were able to link womens consumption of tea with alterations, or epigenetic changes, in the genes that have been determined as interactive with estrogen metabolism and cancer.

See: Black Tea Drains Endocrine Disruptors from the Body

How Drinking Tea May Affect Disease-Risk in Women

The lifestyles we lead and the environment we live in, from chemical exposure and smoking to the food we choose to eat, have all been established as factors in bringing about epigenetic changes within our bodies. Prior studies have inferred that both tea and coffee act as vital contributors in reducing a persons risk of disease through systems that are possibly influenced by epigenetic changes, including lowered levels of inflammation, regulating estrogen metabolism, and even the suppression of tumor progression.

Artist Puts a Single Red Dot in Every Tattoo to Symbolize Hope and Celebrate Change "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Modern Tattoo Design

Some tattoos are full-color masterpieces while others create striking optical illusions on the skin. But tattoo artist Mentat Gamze proves that you can have stunning modern tattoo design with a simple, minimalist approach and a bold accent color. In all of her pieces, there is a fine-line drawing completed in black ink thats inspired by the natural world. And also within every eye-catching tattoo, theres a red dot that accompanies it.

No matter who Gamze inks, the crimson mark is a consistent motif throughout her portfolio. Its presence is now a common bond that all her clients share, like theyre part of an exclusive club. So, why the red dot? It has a special meaning for Gamze, and it represents following your bliss. After starting her working life as a designer, she realized her life was not going in the direction she wanted. Gamze held a number of different positions afterwards, but she was miserable in each one. I got fed up at the end and decided to quit my job, she confesses.

Gamze taught herself how to tattoo and found that it's what shes meant to be doing. I wanted to reflect this on my work and I honored this change with the red dot, she explained. It created a contradiction to burdensome times in my past and it was to symbolize hope and courage.

The idea of a red dot tattoo caught on, and now Gamzes clients give their own meanings to the mark. It was health for one, happiness for another, a lost relative, a planet or just a sinking sun, she recalls. Two years has been past since my first tattoo. During this time I tattooed hundreds of people from all around the world. I listened their stories. I have became part of their lives and I helped them to carry their stories on their bodies with secret symbols.

Artist Mentat Gamze creates modern tattoo design by incorporating a red dot in all of her work. The striking shape symbolizes hope and celebrates change.

Experts Warn: Crop Failures Could Cause Apocalyptic Scenarios "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

corn

Famines have been known to cause widespread starvation, and now with crops and food being traded globally, one hiccup in the growth of just one crop could cause a massive global catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions.

In the past, a poor year for crops, whether it was too wet or too dry, rarely impacted those outside the immediate region.  Only those in close proximity to the failed crops would have to contend with the rising prices and shortages.

Experts Warn: Crop Failures Could Cause Apocalyptic Scenarios "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

corn

Famines have been known to cause widespread starvation, and now with crops and food being traded globally, one hiccup in the growth of just one crop could cause a massive global catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions.

In the past, a poor year for crops, whether it was too wet or too dry, rarely impacted those outside the immediate region. Only those in close proximity to the failed crops would have to contend with the rising prices and shortages. But with the food is now being shipped around the globe, one failure could be apocalyptic, and experts are trying to warn us. Weather and the cyclic nature of the earth, combined with government regulations and war, could make producing viable crops in quantities that will feed humanity difficult in the next several years, especially when considering the increasing human population.

Less than one-quarter of Earths total cropland produces nearly three-quarters of the staple crops that feed the worlds population.  These staples include corn, wheat, and rice, and are the most important cereal crops.

But experts warn that simultaneous crop failures could impact our very near future making global famine a reality. When compounded with the effects of war and the ever-increasing government regulations on agriculture across the globe, food production will continue to face even more difficulty in the coming years.

Chewing stick, effective alternative to toothpaste Expert "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Worried about maintaining your teeth to old age? An alternative to toothpaste that can effectively clean the mouth and prevent teeth decay is Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides, a local chewing stick known in Yoruba as Orin Ata, a dental expert has said.

Professor Juliana Taiwo, speaking at the 2016/2017 inaugural lecture of the University of Ibadan, entitled Nature, Disease and Oral Health: The Conspiracy Triad of the Ageing Dentition, said Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides contains enough fluoride and within a safe limit to prevent tooth decay.

Fluoride in toothpaste has contributed immensely to the prevention of tooth decay worldwide.

According to her, a study that investigated the fluoride content of 10 commonly used chewing sticks in Nigeria found that Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides contained the highest amount of fluoride, a little more than even the affordable fluoride toothpaste.

The chewing sticks tested included Musularia acuminate (Pako Ijebu), Terminalia glycosides (irin idi), Alchorea laxiflora (pepe), Anogeissus leocarparpus (Ayin) and Azadirachta indica(dongoyaro or neem).

The others are Jatropha mutifida (ogege), guava twig, bitter leaf twig and mango twig.

Professor Taiwo said the natural fluoride in Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides was retained in the saliva longer than that in non-herbal fluoride toothpaste.

The expert, who had been working on ensuring better understanding of the oral health in elderly declared, Zanthoxylum zanthoxyloides if properly and regularly used is likely to confer maximum anti caries effect and its use should be encouraged among chewing stick users particularly rural dwellers and the elderly.

Fluoride, therefore, will be easily accessible to the elderly in this environment with little effort and at a very low cost, affordable to the elderly.

She, nevertheless, said since the chewing stick is being used to clean the teeth, its tuft must be ensured to clean all surfaces of the teeth and the tongue.

At the community, we found about 70 per cent of those elderly using chewing stick were actually just chewing it and not using its tuft to brush their teeth and tongue. So, they end up having a lot of plaque and calculus.

Professor Taiwo, however, said that unlike the elderly in developed countries where tooth loss was majorly due to tooth decay, the main cause of tooth loss in the elderly in Nigeria is gum disease, accounting for 98. 7 per cent of all teeth lost.

Although the average Nigerian elderly person maintains more of his or her teeth into old age than the white, she expressed concern on the wide spread of gum disease in the elderly, a pr...

Controversial anti-fluoridation activist to visit Galway this weekend "IndyWatch Feed Health"

An outspoken US scientist, visiting Galway this month, has criticised the Irish government for failing to acknowledge studies that fluoride lowers the IQ of children.

Paul Connett, an anti-fluoridation activist, who was invited to speak to the governments forum on water fluoridation in 2000, cited a 2003 peer-reviewed study from China that showed as little as 1.4milligrams of fluoride per day lowered the IQ of children by 51 [sic, should be 5] points.

That dose would be reached by an Irish child by consuming two litres of water a day and that is before other sources of fluoride, such as toothpaste and tea are considered.

Connett, a globally-known toxicologist and chemist will speak to Galway audiences on Sunday (June 11 ) at the Connacht Hotel as part of the revival of the Fluoride Free Galway campaign, which asks local businesses to install filtration systems that remove fluoride and other toxins from their water.

Connetts two-week talking tour of Ireland will include communities in Limerick, Cobh, Kerry, Cork and Dublin that are fighting industrial pollution, waste incineration and water fluoridation.

The question I will be posing to fluoridation proponents is where are the studies that they can cite which give them the confidence to ignore more than 300 of both animal and human studies that indicate that fluoride is neurotoxic and has the potential to lower IQ in children? he claims.

The lack of scientific integrity within the Irish government is the single greatest threat to this countrys environment said Connett.

I was told by citizens that [the fluoridation forum] was going to be a sham and it was. Out of 300-page report they spent less space -one and half pages discussing primary health studies, than they spent illustrating what a pea-sized piece of toothpaste look like.

Asked why he believed the practice continued in light of such evidence, Mr Connett said: I think they fear that if they lose fluoridation, they will lose the publics trust in other public health practices.

Connett co-authored The Case Against Fluoride which revealed how US authorities had used spurious science to commence the practice of water fluoridation.

Since the very beginning the US authorities have pressured the Irish government to start and keep this practice going, said Connett. He drew parallels between Ireland and the US, saying there was a serious lack of media scrutiny in both countries.

The public talk and screening, will take place at 7pm, on Sunday June 11, Connaught Hotel.

Skibbereen to host US expert on fluoride at public meeting "IndyWatch Feed Health"

An international expert opposed to water fluoridation will address a meeting in Skibbereen next week.

Dr Paul Connett, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology will present the Case Against Fluoride in an open discussion forum in the West Cork Hotel on Thursday, June 15.

He will be joined at the free event which will run from 8-10pm by local environmental scientist Declan Waugh.

A growing body of scientific and clinical evidence appears to link exposure to fluoride to a variety of major public health disorders and questions previously held beliefs that water fluoridation is safe.

For over 20 years, Dr Connett has been an outspoken critic of water fluoridation and helped found the USA based Fluoride Action Network (FAN), one of the largest organisations opposing water fluoridation worldwide.

He is also known for his expertise in waste management and sustainable development and has given thousands of pro bono presentations in over 60 countries internationally.

The event will consist of a conversation between Dr Connett and Mr Waugh regarding how they both got involved in the fluoridation debate internationally.

Mr Waugh has been published in three international peer reviewed journals in the past year.

His most recent focus has been as lead author in two collaborative risk assessment studies on the health effects of fluoride exposure in Ireland and New Zealand.

This work addresses important [contributions] to chronic fluoride exposure and major disease burdens and poses significant challenges for continuing water fluoridation in both countries.

Expanding on this body of knowledge generated in recent years, Mr Waugh is currently researching the linkages between water fluoridation, fluoride intake in infancy and asthma, developmental and behavioural disorders, metabolic and reproductive disorders and cancer.

According to Bandon-based Waugh, there have been many scandals in Ireland which have shaken public confidence in the institutions of the State, but few if any have so directly impacted on the health and wellbeing of multiple generations as much as fluoridation of public water.

6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save the World -- A Short and Powerful Presentation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Conscious Optimist


Some secrets are "secret" due to being deliberately undisclosedothers items of interest are secret because no matter how often you try to tell people, they remain pathologically deaf to such disclosure.  This is the case, in my opinion, with regards to the role of microbial and fungal life in the regeneration of our planet.  Put simply, mushrooms are the master chemists of the biosphere, and with their help we can solve a lot of the impending ecological catastrophes. We could, perhaps, avoid the prospect of rendering our own habitat uninhabitable for our species by using a wealth of knowledge regarding mushrooms that has been online now for years.

What It Feels Like To Be A Man Struggling With Infertility "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

My wife and I cannot have biological children. Infertility is a private hell unimaginable to those who have not experienced it. In Unsung Lullabies, the authors say infertility is comparable to losing a child every month. They claim the trauma experienced by parents who lose a child is emotionally identical to the trauma of not being able to get pregnant.

But there are some horrible differences for parents who cannot conceive or carry to term: The trauma is repeated over and over again. None of the support that accompanies the loss of a child is attached to infertility. The trauma is essentially private. Outside of Manchester by the Sea types of situations, shame is not typically associated with the death of a child, while infertility is considered shameful. Infertility is not a traumatic event but rather a state of being traumatized, so the stages of recovery and grief become a way of life, not a stage of life.

There is nothing to bury, nothing to signify and honor the loss because nothing has been lost. People express their sympathies in horrible ways, such as saying things like If you trust in God hell give you a baby, or I wish we were infertileevery time we have sex it seems like we get pregnant, or my personal favorite, Its okay, you can always adopt.

I Will Never Be a Father

Some significant differences also make infertility distinctly horrible for husbands. Men want to be fathers just as much as women want to be mothers, although we are raised to believe this is not true. Usually boys are taught that women are baby crazy and men seek irresponsibility. But the truth is men were also designed to make and raise children.

Modern men are socialized to believe that they want sex more than they want to have a family, so not having children is seen as a benefit to mans freedom. Women tend to find it easier to begin any grieving process, but especially grieving infertility. Because infertility is presented as a womans problem, husbands tend to think our primary role is to be there for our wives, so we neglect our very real suffering.

I will never be a father. I will never get to see my son play rugby. I will never get to walk my daughter down the aisle on her wedding day. I will never get a call from my son saying hes finally met the one. I will never see my children be baptized.

I will never watch Star Wars with my son for the first time. I will never see my little girl go to her first day of school. I will never get to protect my daughter from monsters in her closet. I will never get to read The Chronicles of Narnia with my son before bed. I will never get a call from my wife saying shes going into labor. I will never get to hear my daughter laugh at my jokes. I will never get to take my son fishing. I will never give my children birthday or Christm...

Bangladesh: Hundreds of Jumma houses torched by settlers as army and police stand by "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Jumma villagers flee the attack, Chittagong Hill Tracts, Bangladesh.
Anonymous

At least 250 houses belonging to Jumma tribal people, the indigenous inhabitants of the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh, have been burnt to the ground by Bengali settlers. An elderly woman, Guna Mala Chakma, was trapped in her home and burned to death.

The arson attack happened on June 2, after the body of Nurul Islam Nayon, a Bengali motorcycle driver, was found and local people blamed Jummas for his death.

Eyewitnesses say that army and police personnel stood by and did nothing as settlers, protesting against Mr Nayons death, went on the rampage, setting fire to Jumma houses and shops in three different villages.

The Bangladesh government has been moving Bengali settlers onto the lands of the Jumma tribal people for more than 60 years. The Jummas have gone from being practically the sole inhabitants of the Hill Tracts to now being outnumbered by settlers.

Tensions between the communities remain high, and violence in one area can often trigger revenge attacks elsewhere.

Settlers have often been allowed to carry out such attacks with impunity, with the security forces ignoring pleas for help from the Jumma community. It has been reported that on June 4, a peaceful protest against the arson attack was violently dispersed by the police and army. Soldiers punched Jumma protestors and beat them with sticks, after demonstrators had called for the perpetrators of the arson attack to be brought to justice.

Survival International is calling for those responsible for the arson attack, and for the death of Nurul Islam Nayon, to be brought to justice. Its also urging the Bangladesh government to urgently investigate the role of the security forces during the attack on the villages and the subsequent peaceful protest.

The History of Classical Music in 1200 Tracks: From Gregorian Chant to Grecki (100 Hours of Audio) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

What is classical music? It may seem like a remedial question, but it is a serious one. Leonard Bernstein took it seriously enough to design an entire program around it. His Young Peoples Concerts with the New York Philharmonicbroadcast on TV from Carnegie Hall in 1959began with an admission of how unclear the term's usage had become in popular culture. You see, he told his young audience, everybody thinks he knows what classical music is People use this word to describe music that isnt jazz or popular songs or folk music, just because there isnt any other word that seems to describe it better.

Classical music is often thought of in even more nebulous, and perhaps elitist, terms as "art music," over and above these other forms. Yet Bernstein goes on to define classical music in more precise ways: A classical composer puts down the exact notes that he wants, the exact instruments or voices that he wants to play or sing those noteseven the exact number of instruments or voices; and he also writes down as many directions as he can think of about tempo, dynamics, etc. What might sound like a straightjacket for musicians instead offers an interpretive challenge: "No performance can be perfectly exact.... But that's what makes the performer's job so excitingto try and find out from what the composer did write down as exactly as possible what he meant."


This working definition, while devoid of technical jargon for the sake of Bernstein's untrained audience, still manages to give us a good sense of the parameters he set for the "classical." They do not stretch widely enough to include improvisatory modernism (though he had a high regard for jazz as a separate category). But they do include much instrumental and choral European music from the start of the medieval period into the 20th century. The definition could be a much narrower one. "One of the first things you learn when you're introduced to classical music," Jay Gabler writes at online radio station Classical MPR, "is that the term 'classical' most properly describes music composed from about...

Massive knob to replace X on ballot papers "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In what is being seen as a massive shake up on polling day the usual X used to mark the spot of the candidate and party you would like to vote for has been replaced with a massive knob.

The Electoral Commission has made it quite clear that any X marked on ballot papers will be classed as invalid. In order for your vote to count you will need to place a massive knob on the candidates head.

The man in charge of the Electoral Commission said, we do honestly believe that this will get more people out to vote. It hasnt escaped our notice that almost all the candidates running in this general election are complete and utter knobs and we feel that drawing a knob on the candidate, youd like to vote for, instead of an X will make things a lot simpler for the electorate.

Tony Henderson said, Ive never voted before, but the fact I get to draw a knob on a politicians head is hilarious, Ill certainly be voting.

It remains to be seen whether drawing a knob instead of a X will get more of the public out to vote, but one thing that is for sure come Friday morning the Great British Public will have elected a bunch of knobs to run the country.

Killjoy: The Story of a Misguided Mental Health Bot "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Joys smile is much closer to tears than laughter. Victor Hugo

It was July 19, 2016. St. Louis, Missouri recorded a mid-day high of 91 degrees. Las Vegas, Nevada was more than 10 degrees hotter at 102. A tornado warning was issued in parts of Iowa. Severe thunderstorm advisories were announced across much of the Southeast. And, Joy was born unto the world via that virtual birth canal we all know so well: Facebook.

Happy Birthday to Who?

The bot was created by one Danny Freed, inspired by the suicide of his close friend a few years prior, and intermingled with his stereotypically limited understanding of the human condition.

I had a friend, a really close friend, who I grew up with and went to University of Michigan with and he was struggling with a mental illness, specifically depression and bipolar disorder and he ended up taking his own life due to these diseases towards the start of my junior year in college and so that really opened my eyes (Excerpt from a podcast interview with Danny on the Chat Bubble, about 2 minutes in)

Joy operates through Facebooks system, its brightly colored face, smiling incessantly (and Joy's new looksomewhat blankly) away as it auto-chats you at least once a day to check in. In fairness, Danny reportedly balks at calling Joy a bot, and refers to it instead as a mental health journaling service. And perhaps if Danny were focused on the design of the latter in a way that didnt hopelessly blur itself with the former, this particular article would never have been written. But Danny is confused.

In this piece for Elephant Journal, one man tells his story of being locked up and forcibly drugged in the psych ward, and how he healed from extreme states naturally through nutrition, yoga, meditation, and spirituality.

I got the sense that many of the doctors and nurses did not see me as a human being. I was labeled as just another patient with bipolar disorder experiencing a state of mania.

I made friends with my fellow lunatics. Stephen was a top chef at a flashy Miami restaurant for many years. One day, he lost his job and soon after that his wife left him. He was heartbroken from the divorce and stressed about his financial situation.

Magdalia had struggled her whole life, being bullied as a young girl. She was always getting into fights and her parents told her she was worthless. She was dealing with so much anxiety and emotional baggage that she developed a condition where she was pulling out her own hair.

The doctors were giving them pills. Im not convinced it was helping though. As I see it, we were all people who did not have the emotional intelligence to deal with the feelings we were processing. We were experiencing the natural ups and downs of being human. I think we needed to feel our emotions, not numb ourselves to them.

Eccentric Coach Turns Rag-Tag Hardcore Pit into Winning Rugby Team "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

BOSTON Hapless rugby coach Roy Walker has molded a group of aggressive hardcore kids and their raw, unfettered mosh pit tactics into potential rugby greatness, according to league officials.

It was fate. I walked into this place called The Guardrail I thought it was a sports bar because I just wanted to drown my sorrows, said Walker, who was written off by his colleagues after leading the Boston Mohawks Rugby Club to a 1-11 record last season. What I witnessed I can only describe as divine providence. A writhing mass of sweaty, male flesh beating the snot out of one another. Toss a ball into that mosh pit, and you got yourself a rugby match, brother.

Walker, known for his risky tactics on the field, quickly recruited 15 of the craziest guys he saw and asked them to meet up the next day.

Its kind of the opposite of how I coached before, Walker admitted. I had to remind them to stop beating on each other, and try to score a point. Ive never seen guys so hungry to hurt other people. The hardest thing to train out of them was the spin kicks they just loved spin kicks.

Fans following the new iteration of Mohawks thought the experiment was doomed to fail when amateurism and ego got in the way of their talent early on. The new Mohawks lost their first game of the season to the Chicago Aldermen by an embarrassing final score of 45-0, with a majority of the Mohawks ejected for conduct contrary to good sportsmanship.

The guy pushed me from behind, so I just gave him a quick mule kick to the stomach. Straight up, I thought that was pretty standard behavior, said loose forward Joel Blood Ahbez. But Im learning new things everyday. Like, before, I didnt know the difference between a prop and a hooker. And, to be honest, I still dont. I really have no idea what Im doing out there.

Related:

With patience from Walker, a few extra drills, and good, old-fashioned pluck and elbow grease, the Mohawks began to gel. Now only attacking opposing ruggers, opponents feared Mohawk mainstays, like center Anton Puke Fist Fry and scrum-half Chelsea The Girl Dwyer. The Mohawks went on one of the longest winning streaks ever recorded to finish their se...

New Battlefield to Take Place Entirely on Message Board "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Having shifted locales recently from World War II to modern times and then going back to World War I, DICE announced today that the newest entry in their flagship first-person shooter franchise will take place entirely within the confines of an internet message board.

It really is the next logical step, said head programmer Dean McQuarry. Battlefield has meticulously recreated the sites of the bloodiest battles in world history, except for the unending war that is message-board fighting. Our research has shown that a large part of our audience is spending more time complaining about games than playing them, so we are combining the experience for them.

Users will be able to create an avatar and post anonymously to the in-game message board in a collection of different game modes.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

Every single feature added to the game is set to ensure that the next Battlefield furthers the campaign to the place where players spend the most of their time fighting against other players: the message board.

Mods & Trolls is an intense, one-against-many survival mode where the player attempts to make as many homophobic, racist and anti-Semitic posts without getting banned. Bonus points will be awarded for creative slur combinations.

4chan looks to be a fresh take on the conventional online death match by adding death threats to the series for the first time. In addition to the several modes of gameplay, the series will introduce new weapons such as memes, links to logical fallacies and testosterone, along with re-imagining s...

Neuroscientists Suggest These 4 Easy Ways To Create Genuine Happiness In Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

All of us have experienced times when a dark cloud just seems to be following us around. No matter what you do, it just seems that you cant seem to shake off that feeling of negativity.

While we dont want to minimize the value of medication for those who experience this on a daily basis, UCLA neuroscientist Alex Korb, author of The Upward Spiral: Using Neuroscience to Reverse the Course of Depression, One Small Change at a Time, has some handy insights from neuroscience that may help us feel genuinely positive and happy.

Get Your Brains Attention

It might surprise you, but your brain isnt exactly helpful when it comes to making you feel good. If youre experiencing guilt or shame, your brain may be trying to activate its reward center.

While that may sound weird, Korb explains:

Despite their differences, pride, shame, and guilt all activate similar neural circuits, including the dorsomedial prefrontal cortex, amygdala, insula, and the nucleus accumbens. This explains why it can be so appealing to heap guilt and shame on ourselves theyre activating the brains reward center.

This can also occur if you cant stop worrying.

Korb says that worrying stimulates the medial prefrontal cortex and lowers activity in the amygdala, thus helping your limbic system, your emotions, remain copascetic.

So what you can do about this?

Korb suggests asking yourself: What am I grateful for? His reasoning is chemical: One powerful effect of gratitude is that it can boost serotonin. Trying to think of things you are grateful for forces you to focus on the positive aspects of your life. This simple act increases serotonin production in the anterior cingulate cortex.

2) Label your emotions

If youre feeling down, try to get specific. Why are you feeling down? What exactly are you feeling? Neuroscience has found that simply labelling your emotions actually defuses them.

Open the Treasure Chest of Your Spiritual Gifts "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Deborah King

Youre sitting outside, enjoying the cool morning breeze and the sun warming your skin as you sip your chai tea. You are content, basking in the lovely spring day before you have to head to work. Suddenly you feel anxious, unnerved, and a thought arises: something bad has happened. Moments later, your cell phone rings. Your mom says your dad is in an ambulance on the way to the hospital with a heart attack! As you throw a few things in a suitcase and head to the airport, you wonder: How did I know something was wrong with someone I love before the phone even rang?

Indeed, how did you know?

That feelingthe anxiety that flooded your body in seeming contradiction to the relaxed moment in the morning suncame from somewhere beyond your five physical senses. There was nothing in your environment that created that anxiety; you had no previous knowledge that there was anything wrong with your dads health. But you have an energetic connection with your parents, even if youre not thinking about them. In your moms worry about your dad, her panic as the ambulance doors closed to whisk him away, as she picked up the phone to call you, her energy reached out to you . . . and you felt it.


Youve just had what is called a paranormal experiencebeyond your five physical senses.

Of course, if youd been in the office with a thousand things on your mind, you probably would have dismissed the feeling as just another indication that you really, really need a vacation. And thats what happens all the time. You receive messages, but dont listen to them or believe they are real. You doubt the reality of something that you cant touch, taste, see, hear, or smell.

If only you realized how many other channels of communication with the universe are available to you! Its like having a treasure chest that is buried beneath doubt and cynicism. And what a treasure chest it is!

How To Alkalize Water Naturally (And Why You Should) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Katherine Marko; The Alternative Daily

Theres no question we absolutely can not live without water. But do we really need to drink alkalized water for our survival? Perhaps not for our ultimate survival, but maybe for longevity. Advocates of alkaline water believe it can help our bodies stay disease-free, and generally improve all aspects of our health.

What is alkaline water?

You may have heard the various health claims regarding alkaline water. Some believe it can help slow the aging process by regulating the bodys pH level. Some even believe it can prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water? Alkaline water is water thats less acidic than your regular tap water. That generally means the water is rich in alkalizing compounds such as calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate, according to Ryan Adams for Precision Nutrition.


Advocates of alkaline water believe that it can neutralize the acid in your bloodstream and help your body metabolize nutrients more effectively. The word alkaline in alkaline water refers to its pH level. Acidity is something thats measured on a pH scale from 0 (strongly acidic) to 14 (strongly basic, or alkaline). A pH of 7.0, in the middle of this scale, indicates neutrality.

The 432Hz Miracle Tone Raise Your Vibration With This Healing Frequency "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Kalee Brown; Collective Evolution

As sound healing becomes more popular, more and more people are starting to experiment with it. You have people learning how to chant, listening to specific frequencies, and using singing bowls. Its not just those of us who are interested in spirituality and New Age concepts that are looking into this ancient Eastern knowledge, but scientists as well, studying these sounds and how they affect the body.

Though sound healing is only now beginning to enter into the mainstream, its been used as an ancient healing modality for many centuries in different religions. Even scientists such as Nikola Tesla and Albert Einstein spoke of the importance of viewing everything in terms of vibration, energy, and frequency.


If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
Nikola Tesla

Science has proven that everything is made up of energy and that everything holds its own vibration and frequency, which can then be increased or decreased. One persons vibration that theyre emitting can then affect another persons energy, and science has proven this interrelation through studying quantum mechanics and our electromagnetic fields or auras.

Skies to be Openly Sprayed With Toxic Metals this Weekend, Blocking the Sunlight "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Cassius Methyl; The Mind Unleashed

The skies in Maryland will be openly sprayed with toxic metals by NASA today, Saturday June 3rd.

Barium, strontium, and cupric-oxide are being sprayed off the coast of Maryland out of a sounding rocket being launched from Virginia. NASA claims they are doing tests with the ionosphere, disregarding the concepts of ionospheric heating or geoengineering, as if we dont know what they are doing.

This pattern of metals precisely mirrors geoengineering patents, and rain tests conducted in areas that have seen heavy chemtrail spraying. This is the exact signature set of metals found in rain and soil samples where chemtrails have been sprayed, minus the central component aluminum oxide.


That makes this an unprecedented first step toward the government spraying the skies as a regular practice to combat climate change, as an army of corrupt academicians is pushing for.

They have been spraying for a while, but people who point it out are denigrated as conspiracy theorists. Now, they just want to spray us even worse without hiding it.

Its 2017: Its Time We Recognized What Year It Is "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

I dont think Im alone in saying, good riddance and, dont let the door hit you on your way out to 2016. 2016 was a mere 6 months ago, but it was also roughly 180 days ago. That 180 days has felt like an eternity and led to a lot of reflection about just how far weve come in that time. Weve grown not only as a nation, but as a world. I think I speak for everyone and especially you when I say its time we recognized that it is the year 2017, and thats what year it is.

We have waited long enough to start treating the year like its 2017, and if youre not reassessing all of your 2016 beliefs in the context of 2017, then YOU are the problem. At this point, its been 2017 so long, I really shouldnt have to be saying this. One need only look at a calendar to see what is plain to me: 2017 isnt going anywhere. 2017 is here to stay, and the time has come that we started treating the year for what it is.

2017 is one more than 2016, and thats one whole rotation around the sun more times than it was last year. If you cant open your fucking eyes and see thats its 2017, then you have no business expressing your opinions. All of the people online talk about the year like its 2016, or heaven forbid, 2015. Those years are not 2017 and they never will be. Get with the times, specifically the time of 2017.

Related: Its Time to Have a Conversation About How Lonely I Am

But its only six more months until 2018, you might be saying. And you might be right. But until that day comes, 2017 is what Im worried about, and Ill die before I say its any other year. Frankly, I see no reason to think that 2017 isnt going to be the year for two, three, even four years. Its hard to believe things will change, but if 2018 ever comes, Ill be the first one with my fist in the air, correcting you and reminding you that thats what year it is.

New shadow cabinet meets in roadside caf "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

on the roadside to recoveryThe reshuffled shadow cabinet met for the first time today in their new surroundings of Macs 5-Star Breakfast and Burger caf in Dagenham.

Sat in a plastic chair at the head of two pushed-together formica tables, one of which had the word knob carved into it, acting Labour leader Harriet Harman chaired important discussions on renewing Labour values, reviving grassroots support and whether to go for the all-day breakfast or the early bird menu.

What we need to do is show voters that Labour is the party of aspiration, said shadow chancellor Chris Leslie, delivering a forkful of baked beans into his mouth before wiping sauce off his chin with a copy of the Daily Star.

Having taken the decision by block vote to opt for second sausages all round rather than hash browns, the shadow cabinet drew up detailed plans to drive through the partys five-year vision for bitter infighting, compromise policies and a lacklustre showing at the polls in 2020.

The key thing is that the public and businesses need to be able to trust us on the economy again, said Chuka Umunna, looking around his colleagues to see who would pick up the bill.

In a sign of renewed solidarity, everyone agreed to slip away quietly and leave a note saying; Im afraid there is no money.

Constructing The Separation Game "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Jeff; Divine Cosmos

In most of the multitude of realities that "we" created and then played within we knew, to varying degrees, what we were creator beings that are integral parts of the One creator being Source consciousness, prime creator, God, or whatever else you like to call it.

But within this great diversity of realities, there were none in which we completely forgot what we were and this possibility intrigued us immensely. What would that be like and what could it teach us? It certainly seemed like it might be very interesting, to say the least.


So in our eternal quest to know ourselves and the nature of our existence we set out to create this new type of reality one where we would completely lose our connection to our divine source, forget that we are creators and all integral parts of One universal consciousness. A reality where we would think we were separate from the creator and each other. A reality where we would experience the greatest degree of individuality and separation anywhere in the Multiverse a reality that could aptly be called "The Separation Game."

Our entire Universe is a manifestation of the separation game. It's like a huge multi-stage set where the separation game is playing out on many worlds and at many levels. One of the worlds where the separation game is in full swing is our very own planet Earth.

If We Dont Fight For It, The Liberal World Order Is Going To Kill Our Way Of Life "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Michael Snyder; The Economic Collapse

There comes a time when it becomes necessary to draw a line in the sand. When the early settlers came to America, they were desperate to find a place where they could live in freedom. And our Founding Fathers worked very hard to draft a Constitution that would guarantee that future generations of Americans would live in a nation where the freedom and liberty of the people were maximized. Unfortunately, the way of life that our founders sought to establish is slowly being killed off by the progressive agenda of the Liberal World Order. Just about every single element of their progressive agenda is diametrically opposed to the values and the principles that this country was founded upon. And if they ultimately get everything that they want, our way of life will be eradicated for good.

The term Liberal World Order is a phrase that is starting to be used quite frequently by the establishment. It was used by the Washington Post to describe Barack Obamas final speech to the United Nations, and Vice-President Joe Biden used it during his speech at the World Economic Forum in January.


But of course it is a term that doesnt just apply to Democrats. Many establishment Republicans also believe in the progressive agenda of the Liberal World Order, and that is why before Trump was elected nothing ever seemed to change very much in Washington no matter who was in power.

Sadly, the same thing is true all over the western world. The Liberal World Order dominates most of the major political parties in just about every industrialized nation, and they are very much accustomed to getting their way. That is one of the reasons why they hate Donald Trump with such a passion, because he is someone that they cannot fully control.

Prepper guns 101: Top list of firearms you need in your arsenal "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Next to nutritious food and clean water, one of the most essential items that you dont want to be caught without in the event of a societal collapse is a firearm.

Aside from hunting, having a gun by your side in a world without law and order could literally mean the difference between life and death. Below is a list of the top firearms you should look for in preparation for the day when SHTF, as provided by OffGridSurvival.com.

.22

The. 22 long rifle would make a great addition to your arsenal because of the fact that they are one of the most abundant cartridges in the United States. Owning one of these rifles will make it much easier for you to stockpile ammunition, and although it is not necessarily made for taking down big game, it is highly efficient when it comes to hunting small game like rabbits and turkey.

Ruger 10/22

 The Ruger 10/22 is one of the most popular rifles in the United States because of how accurate and easy to shoot it is. Its rather inexpensive, making it easy to stockpile more than one if its necessary. The Ruger 10/22 is also a great firearm to use when teaching young children how to shoot, which would be essential in a prolonged survival situation.

Henry Lever Action

Like the Ruger 10/22, this lever action firearm is perfect for teaching young ones how to shoot. It is definitely a weapon that all preppers should strongly consider getting their hands on.

Ruger SP101

With an 8-round capacity, these revolvers can be used to take down small game, and yet again are an excellent choice when it comes to teaching children how to shoot.

Kel Tec PMR 30

When it comes to prepping for the collapse of society, for most people, the Kel Tec is most likely not the first gun that comes to mind. However, with a 30-round capacity and minimal recoil, the Kel Tec PMR 30 is a must-have weapon for those who may be newer to shooting but are still looking to defend themselves.

7 Simple Survival Techniques That Could Save Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Accidents happen. For those of us that rough it out on our own in the wild, we know all too well that this is a potential reality we face every day. Any good survival man or woman knows that it is best to over-prepared for anything that might come your way in the wild. Stay prepared whether it be weather-related, animal incidents, or making sure that youve got the appropriate materials to enact vital survival techniques.

7 Survival Techniques

Read on to discover 7 quick and easy hacks that could save your life:

1. If youre ever in need of light, or even a little bit of extra warmth, grab an empty soda can and cut out the sides. Place a lit candle inside the can, ensuring that the light will be reflected. This allows not only for more visibility, but it offers additional protection from the elements as well, making for a longer-lasting nighttime glow.

2. In need of a clean water source, but no fresh river in sight?  What youll need here is a piece of cloth and two containers. One container will remain empty, and the other will contain your unclean water source. Dip one end of the cloth into the dirty water container, and let the other dangle into the second empty container. Soon enough, youll be amazed to discover you have filtered and muck-free water. (Remember to boil it afterwards, though!)

3. Need some quick and easy cooking with little to no effort? All you need to do is grab an empty egg carton and some charcoal. Pack the charcoal into the egg slots and seal up the carton. Light a corner of the container, and youve got a homemade grill thats ready to cook anything from hot dogs, boiling water, to smores!

7 Survival Techniques That Could Save Your Life

4. Mosquitoes getting the better of you? A quick combination of household herbs is sure to do the trick and cure you of that itch. While youve got your egg-carton grill fired up, drop some basil leaves or rosemary onto the top. Mosquitoes cant stand the smell and will steer clear far away, leaving you to enjoy your freshly cooked meal....

Download 2,500 Beautiful Woodblock Prints and Drawings by Japanese Masters (1600-1915) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

No one art form has done more to shape the world's sense of traditional Japanese aesthetics than the woodblock print. But not so very long ago, in historical terms, no such works had ever left Japan. That changed when, according to the Library of Congress, "American naval officer Matthew Calbraith Perry (1794-1858) led an expedition to Japan between 1852 and 1854 that was instrumental in opening Japan to the Western world after more than 200 years of national seclusion." As travelers, materials, and products began flowing between Japan and the West, so did art.
