Small-Town American Budgets Devastated By Opioid Crisis As 41 States Subpoena Big Pharma

Sep 19th 2017, 20:45, by Zero Hedge

opioid

A surge in Opioid consumption, primarily prescription painkillers, heroin and fentanyl – a drug 50 to 100 times more powerful than morphine – and the resulting spike in overdose related deaths is devastating families in rural America.  But the opioid epidemic is laying waste to more than just the broken families it counts among its victims, as Reuters points out today, rural municipalities are finding it nearly impossible to fund the surging costs associated with overdoses which come in the form of emergency call volumes, medical examiner and coroner bills, and overcrowded jails and courtrooms.

As an example, Ross County, Ohio, a town of only 77,000, says its budget for child services has doubled in just 5 years and 75% of the children place into protection come from homes where parents have opioid addictions.

Ross County, a largely rural region of 77,000 people an hour south of Columbus, Ohio, is wrestling with an explosion in opioid-related deaths – 44 last year compared to 19 in 2009. The drug addiction epidemic is shattering not just lives but also stressing the county budget.

About 75 percent of the 200 children placed into state care in the county have parents with opioid addictions, up from about 40 percent five years ago, local officials say. Their care is more expensive because they need specialist counseling, longer stays and therapy.

That has caused a near doubling in the county’s child services budget to almost $2.4 million from $1.3 million, said Doug Corcoran, a county commissioner.

For a county with a general fund of just $23 million, that is a big financial burden, Corcoran said. He and his colleagues are now exploring what they might cut to pay for the growing costs of the epidemic, such as youth programs and economic development schemes.

But it’s not just the cost of child services that is wreaking havoc on municipal budgets as everything from autopsy and toxicology costs to court fees and jail expenses are surging throughout rural America.

Autopsy and toxicology costs there have nearly doubled in six years, from about $89,000 in 2010 to $165,000 in 2016, county data shows.

Court costs are soaring, mainly because of the expense of prosecuting opioid-related crimes and providing accused with a public defender, local officials say.

The county is using contingency funds to pay for the added coroner costs, said Mike Baker, the county’s top government official. Last year, the county drew $63,000 from those funds, up from $19,000 in 2014, he said. In 2014, the county saw 10 drug-related deaths. In 2016, the number had grown to 53.

In Mercer County, West Virginia, 300 miles (483 km) to the south of Indiana County, opioid-related jail costs are carving into the small annual budget of $12 million for the community of 62,000 people.

The county’s jail expenses are on course to increase by $100,000 this year, compared to 2015. The county pays $48.50 per inmate per day to the jail, and this year the jail is on course to have over 2,000 more “inmate days” compared to 2015, according to county data.

“At least 90 percent of those extra jail costs are opioid-related,” said Greg Puckett, a county commissioner who sits on a national county opioid task force. “We spend more in one month on our jail bill than we spend per month on economic development, our health department and our emergency services combined.”

Meanwhile, as Bloomberg has just noted, attorneys general from 41 states are broadening their investigation into the opioid industry and have served subpoenas to five pharma companies that make the most powerful prescription painkillers.

They announced Tuesday that they had served subpoenas requesting information from five companies that make powerful prescription painkillers and three distributors. Forty-one attorneys general are involved.

The investigation into marketing and sales practices seeks to find out whether the industry’s own actions worsened the epidemic.

If the industry cooperates, the investigation could lead to a national settlement.

The Healthcare Distribution Alliance said in a statement that it’s not responsible for the volume of opioid prescribing but that it does want to work on solving the public health crisis.

Dozens of local and state governments have already filed, announced or publicly considered lawsuits against drugmakers or distributors.

To add some context to the scale of the opioid epidemic, the California Department of Public Health recently dropped some staggering statistics showing that there are a remarkable number of counties in California where annual prescriptions for pain killers actually exceed the population.

Trinity County is the state’s fourth-smallest, and ended last year with an estimated population of 13,628 people.

Its residents also filled prescriptions for oxycodone, hydrocodone and other opioids 18,439 times, the highest per capita rate in California.

Besides Trinity, other counties with more prescriptions than people include Lake, Shasta, Tuolumne and Del Norte counties. In the Sacramento region, El Dorado, Placer and Sacramento counties had prescription rates above the statewide average, with Yolo County slightly below the state average.

A county’s prescription total represents all opioids dispensed via prescriptions filled at a pharmacy and tracked by the state. Statewide, 15 percent of Californians were prescribed opioids in 2016, ranging from 7.3 percent of residents in tiny Alpine County to almost 27 percent in Lake County.

As might be expected, the scripts per capita are highest in California’s more rural northern counties.

So who is participating most in this deadly epidemic? Well, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the biggest abusers of opioids are high-school educated, unemployed, white people living in small towns…

“The following characteristics were associated with higher amounts of opioids prescribed: a larger percentage of non-Hispanic whites; higher rates of uninsured and Medicaid enrollment; lower educational attainment; higher rates of unemployment; (small-town) status; more dentists and physicians per capita; a higher prevalence of diagnosed diabetes, arthritis, and disability; and higher suicide rates,” concluded the authors of a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention study released in July.

“What you’re seeing in California is what you’re seeing in many parts of the country, including Oregon,”Korthuis said. “There are still a lot of rural counties around the U.S. that are awash in prescription opioids.”

Of course, growth in opioid addiction is hardly just a California phenomenon. According to the CDC’s Annual Surveillance Report of Drug-Related Risks and Outcomes, addiction-related deaths are far more prevalent in the rural ‘rust-belt’ states of the Midwest.

Meanwhile, the epidemic is growing far more severe every year with overdose deaths up 167% across the country since 1999.

The rate of drug overdose deaths increased from 6.1 per 100,000 population in 1999 to 16.3 in 2015; for unintenttional drug overdose deaths, the rate increased from 4.0 per 100,000 in 1999 to 13.8 in 2015; for drug overdose deaths involving any opioid, the rate increased from 2.9 per 100,000 in 1999 to 10.4 in 2015 (p<0.05); for unintenttional drug overdose deaths involving any opioid, the rate increased from 2.1 per 100,000 in 1999 to 9.3 per 100,000 in 2015 (p<0.05). For all four categories of drug overdose deaths, increases in rates were largest from 2013 to 2015, with the rate increasing on average by 9% per year for overall drug overdose deaths (p<0.05), 11% per year for unintenttional drug overdose deaths (p<0.05), 15% per year for drug overdose deaths involving any opioid (p<0.05), and 16% for unintenttional drug overdose deaths involving any opioid (p<0.05).

But don’t worry too much because, as Princeton Economist Alan Krueger told us recently, there is a simple solution to the opioid epidemic in the U.S…apparently it can all be solved with just a little more Obamacare.

Happy Birthday CIA: 7 Truly Terrible Things the Agency Has Done in 70 Years

Sep 19th 2017, 19:45, by The Anti-Media

CIALogo

On Monday, President Trump tweeted birthday wishes to the Air Force and the CIA.

Both became official organizations 70 years ago on September 18, 1947, with the implementation of the National Security Act of 1947.

After spending years as a wartime intelligence agency called the Office of Strategic Services, the agency was solidified as a key player in the federal government’s operations with then-President Harry Truman’s authorization.

In the seventy years since, the CIA has committed a wide variety of misdeeds, crimes, coups, and violence. Here are seven of the worst programs they’ve carried out (that are known to the public):

1) Toppling governments around the world — The CIA is best known for its first coup, Operation Ajax, in 1953, in which it ousted the democratically elected leader of Iran, Mohammed Mossadegh, reinstating the autocratic Shah, who favored western oil interests. That operation, which the CIA now admits to waging with British intelligence, ultimately resulted in the 1979 revolution and subsequent U.S. hostage crisis. Relations between the U.S. and Iran remain strained to this day, aptly described by the CIA-coined term “blowback.”

But the CIA has had a hand in toppling a number of other democratically elected governments, from Guatemala (1954) and the Congo (1960) to the Dominican Republic (1961), South Vietnam (1963), Brazil (1964), and Chile (1973). The CIA has aimed to install leaders who appease American interests, often empowering oppressive, violent dictators. This is only a partial list of countries where the CIA covertly attempted to exploit and manipulate sovereign nations’ governments.

2) Operation Paperclip — In one of the more bizarre CIA plots, the agency and other government departments employed Nazi scientists both within and outside the United States to gain an advantage over the Soviets. As summarized by NPR:

“The aim [of Operation Paperclip] was to find and preserve German weapons, including biological and chemical agents, but American scientific intelligence officers quickly realized the weapons themselves were not enough.

“They decided the United States needed to bring the Nazi scientists themselves to the U.S. Thus began a mission to recruit top Nazi doctors, physicists and chemists — including Wernher von Braun, who went on to design the rockets that took man to the moon.”

They kept this plot secret, though they admitted to it upon the release of Operation Paperclip: The Secret Intelligence Program That Brought Nazi Scientists To America by Annie Jacobsen. In a book review, the CIA wrote that “Henry Wallace, former vice president and secretary of commerce, believed the scientists’ ideas could launch new civilian industries and produce jobs.” 

They praised the book’s historical accuracy, noting “that the Launch Operations Center at Cape Canaveral, Florida, was headed by Kurt Debus, an ardent Nazi.” They acknowledged that “General Reinhard Gehlen, former head of Nazi intelligence operations against the Soviets, was hired by the US Army and later by the CIA to operate 600 ex-Nazi agents in the Soviet zone of occupied Germany.”

Remarkably, they noted that Jacobsen “understandably questions the morality of the decision to hire Nazi SS scientists,” but praise her for pointing out that it was done to fight Soviets. They also made sure to add that the Soviets hired Nazis, too, apparently justifying their own questionable actions by citing their most loathed enemy.

3) Operation CHAOS — The FBI is widely known for its COINTELPRO schemes to undermine communist movements in the 1950s and anti-war, civil rights, and black power movements in the 1960s, but the CIA has not been implicated nearly as deeply because, technically, the CIA cannot legally engage in domestic spying. But that was of little concern to President Lyndon B. Johnson as opposition to the Vietnam war grew. According to former New York Times journalist and Pulitzer Prize-winner Tim Weiner, as documented in his extensive CIA historyLegacy of Ashes, Johnson instructed then-CIA Director Richard Helms to break the law:

“In October 1967, a handful of CIA analysts joined in the first big Washington march against the war. The president regarded protesters as enemies of the state. He was convinced that the peace movement was controlled and financed by Moscow and Beijing. He wanted proof. He ordered Richard Helms to produce it.

“Helms reminded the president that the CIA was barred from spying on Americans. He says Johnson told him: ‘I’m quite aware of that. What I want for you is to pursue this matter, and to do what is necessary to track down the foreign communists who are behind this intolerable interference in our domestic affairs…’”

Helms obeyed. Weiner wrote:

“In a blatant violation of his powers under the law, the director of central intelligence became a part-time secret police chief. The CIA undertook a domestic surveillance operation, code-named Chaos. It went on for almost seven years… Eleven CIA officers grew long hair, learned the jargon of the New Left, and went off to infiltrate peace groups in the United States and Europe.”

According to Weiner, “the agency compiled a computer index of 300,000 names of American people and organizations, and extensive files on 7,200 citizens. It began working in secret with police departments all over America.” Because they could not draw a “clear distinction” between the new far left and mainstream opposition to the war, the CIA spied on every major peace organization in the country. President Johnson also wanted them to prove a connection between foreign communists and the black power movement. “The agency tried its best,” Weiner noted, ultimately noting that “the CIA never found a shred of evidence that linked the leaders of the American left or the black-power movement to foreign governments.”

4) Infiltrating the media — Over the years, the CIA has successfully gained influence in the news media, as well as popular media like film and television. Its influence over the news began almost immediately after the agency was formed. As Weiner explained, CIA Director Allen Dulles established firm ties with newspapers:

“Dulles kept in close touch with the men who ran the New York Times, The Washington Post, and the nation’s leading weekly magazines. He could pick up the phone and edit a breaking story, make sure an irritating foreign correspondent was yanked from the field, or hire the services of men such as Time’s Berlin bureau chief and Newsweek’s man in Tokyo.”

He continued:

“It was second nature for Dulles to plant stories in the press. American newsrooms were dominated by veterans of the government’s wartime propaganda branch, the Office of War Information…The men who responded to the CIA’s call included Henry Luce and his editors at Time, Life, and Fortune; popular magazines such as Parade, the Saturday Review, and Reader’s Digest; and the most powerful executives at CBS News. Dulles built a public-relations and propaganda machine that came to include more than fifty news organizations, a dozen publishing houses, and personal pledges of support from men such as Axel Springer, West Germany’s most powerful press baron.”

The CIA’s influence had not waned by 1977 when journalist Carl Bernstein reported on publications with CIA agents in their employ, as well as “more than 400 American journalists who in the past twenty‑five years have secretly carried out assignments for the Central Intelligence Agency.”

The CIA has also successfully advised on and influenced numerous television shows, such as Homeland and 24 and films like Zero Dark Thirty and Argo, which push narratives that ultimately favor the agency. According to Tricia Jenkins, author of The CIA in Hollywood: How the Agency Shapes Film & Televisiona concerted agency effort began in the 1990s to counteract negative public perceptions of the CIA, but their influence reaches back decades. In the 1950s, filmmakers produced films for the CIA, including the 1954 film adaptation of George Orwell’s Animal Farm.

Researchers Tom Secker and Matthew Alford, whose work has been published in the American Journal of Economics and Sociology, say their recent Freedom of Information Act requests have shown that the CIA — along with the military — have influenced over 1,800 films and television shows, many of which have nothing to do with CIA or military themes.

5) Drug-induced Mind control – In the 1950s, the CIA began experimenting with drugs to determine whether they might be useful in extracting information. As Smithsonian Magazine has noted of the MKUltra project:

“The project, which continued for more than a decade, was originally intended to make sure the United States government kept up with presumed Soviet advances in mind-control technology. It ballooned in scope and its ultimate result, among other things, was illegal drug testing on thousands of Americans.”

Further:

“The intent of the project was to study ‘the use of biological and chemical materials in altering human behavior,’ according to the official testimony of CIA director Stansfield Turner in 1977. The project was conducted in extreme secrecy, Turner said, because of ethical and legal questions surrounding the program and the negative public response that the CIA anticipated if MKUltra should become public.

“Under MKUltra, the CIA gave itself the authority to research how drugs could:’ ‘promote the intoxicating effects of alcohol;’ ‘render the induction of hypnosis easier;’ ‘enhance the ability of individuals to withstand privation, torture and coercion;’ produce amnesia, shock and confusion; and much more. Many of these questions were investigated using unwitting test subjects, like drug-addicted prisoners, marginalized sex workers and terminal cancer patients– ‘people who could not fight back,’ in the words of Sidney Gottlieb, the chemist who introduced LSD to the CIA.”

Further, as Weiner noted:

“Under its auspices, seven prisoners at a federal penitentiary in Kentucky were kept high on LSD for seventy-seven consecutive days. When the CIA slipped the same drug to an army civilian employee, Frank Olson, he leaped out of the window of a New York Hotel.”

Weiner added that senior CIA officers destroyed “almost all of the records” of the programs, but that while the “evidence that remains is fragmentary…it strongly suggests that use of secret prisons for the forcible drug-induced questioning of suspect agents went on throughout the 1950s.

Years later, the CIA would be accused of distributing crack-cocaine into poor black communities, though this is currently less substantiated and supported mostly by accounts of those who claim to have been involved.

6) Brutal torture tactics — More recently, the CIA was exposed for sponsoring abusive, disturbing terror tactics against detainees at prisons housing terror suspects. An extensive 2014 Senate report documented agents committing sexual abuse, forcing detainees to stand on broken legs, waterboarding them so severely it sometimes led to convulsions, and imposing forced rectal feeding, to name a few examples. Ultimately, the agency had very little actionable intelligence to show for their torture tactics but lied to suggest they did, according to the torture report. Their torture tactics led the International Criminal Court to suggest the CIA, along with the U.S. armed forces, could be guilty of war crimes for their abuses.

7) Arming radicals — The CIA has a long habit of arming radical, extremist groups that view the United States as enemies. In 1979, the CIA set out to support Afghan rebels in their bid to defeat the Soviet occupation of the Middle Eastern country. As Weiner wrote, in 1979, “Prompted by Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter signed a covert-action order for the CIA to provide the Afghan rebels with medical aid, money, and propaganda.

As Weiner detailed later in his book:

“The Pakistani intelligence chiefs who doled out the CIA’s guns and money favored the Afghan factions who proved themselves most capable in battle. Those factions also happened to be the most committed Islamists. No one dreamed that the holy warriors could ever turn their jihad against the United States.”

Though some speculate the CIA directly armed Osama bin Laden, that is yet to be fully proven or admitted. What is clear is that western media revered him as a valuable fighter against the Soviets, that he arrived to fight in Afghanistan in1980, and that al-Qaeda emerged from the mujahideen, who were beneficiaries of the CIA’s program. Stanford University has noted that Bin Laden and Abdullah Azzam, a prominent Palestinian cleric, “established Al Qaeda from the fighters, financial resources, and training and recruiting structures left over from the anti-Soviet war.” Much of those “structures” were provided by the agency. Intentionally or not, the CIA helped fuel the rise of the terror group.

Weiner noted that as the CIA failed in other countries like Libya, by the late 1980s “Only the mujahideen, the Afghan holy warriors, were drawing blood and scenting victory. The CIA’s Afghan operation was now a $700-million-dollar-a-year-program” and represented 80% of the overseas budget of the clandestine services. “The CIA’s briefing books never answered the question of what would happen when a militant Islamic army defeated the godless invaders of Afghanistan,” though Tom Twetten, “the number two man in the clandestine service in the summer of 1988,” was tasked with figuring out what would happen with the Afghan rebels. “We don’t have any plan,” he concluded.

Apparently failing to learn their lesson, the CIA adopted nearly the exact same policy in Syria decades later, arming what they called “moderate rebels” against the Assad regime. Those groups ultimately aligned with al-Qaeda groups. One CIA-backed faction made headlines last year for beheading a child (though President Trump cut off the CIA program in June, the military continues to align with “moderate” groups).

Unsurprisingly, this list is far from complete. The CIA has engaged in a wide variety of extrajudicial practice, and there are likely countless transgressions we have yet to learn about.

As Donald Trump cheers the birthday of an agency he himself once criticized, it should be abundantly clear that the nation’s covert spy agency deserves scrutiny and skepticism — not celebration.

Octlantis: The Newly Discovered Octopus City

Sep 19th 2017, 19:22, by Dawn Luger

octopus

Biologists have just discovered an underwater city of octopuses. Octlantis features dens made out of piles of sand and shells and is home to up to 15 of the cephalopods, according to marine biologists.

The scientists recorded 10 hours of video footage of the site now dubbed Octlantis, which lies 10 to 15 meters (33 to 49 feet) under the water and measures 18 by 4 meters (59 by 13 feet). The international team of researchers saw the gloomy octopuses meeting up, living together, communicating with each other, chasing unwelcome octopuses away, and even evicting each other from dens – so it seems Octlantis can be quite a rough place to live.

Octopolis seems to be centered on an unidentified human-made object about 30 cm (11.8 inches) in length, but there’s no obvious comparable object in Octlantis that creatures appear to have settled around. Instead, it might be jutting rocks that first attracted the octopuses to the area, according to the researchers.

“These behaviors are the product of natural selection, and may be remarkably similar to vertebrate complex social behavior,” lead researcher David Scheel, from Alaska Pacific University, told Ephrat Livni at Quartz. “This suggests that when the right conditions occur, evolution may produce very similar outcomes in diverse groups of organisms.” –Science Alert

Two behaviors at this site suggest that Octopus tetricus octopuses aren’t quite the loners they’ve always been portrayed as by biologists, but what we don’t know yet is whether these small octopus cities are particularly common, or exactly how they get started. Normally, octopuses meet to mate before going their separate ways and were never thought of as a social species.

The first odd social behavior is the “Octopus Fight Club.” The new octopus city lies in Jervis Bay on the coastline of eastern Australia and is close to another similar site discovered in 2009 called Octopolis. At that site, scientists have seen a kind of Octopus Fight Club take place in the past. Second,  the researchers also discovered the discarded shells of eaten prey scattered around the city and sometimes those shells were used to form dens.

“At both sites there were features that we think may have made the congregation possible – namely several seafloor rock outcroppings dotting an otherwise flat and featureless area,” says one of the team, Stephanie Chancellor from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

“We still don’t really know much about octopus behavior,” says Chancellor. “More research will be needed to determine what these actions might mean.”

*The research has been published in Marine and Freshwater Behaviour and Physiology.

[WATCH] Angry Woman Verbally Abuses Man For Bringing PTSD Dog Into Restaurant

Sep 19th 2017, 18:30, by Dawn Luger

madladyimagewww.thedailysheeple.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/madladyimage-300×178.jpg 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 559px) 100vw, 559px” />

An angry woman was captured on video screaming at a man for bringing his PTSD dog into a restaurant. The man remained silent during the verbal onslaught until coolly telling her to calm down.

Shocking footage captured the moment a woman yelled at a military veteran after he brought his PTSD dog inside the restaurant. Workers and diners queued up to defend the serviceman who remained silent during the unpleasant verbal onslaught.

Holding his dog’s leash, the veteran stands near his dog, which appears to be a Great Dane mix with an official military coat wrapped around its body. These animals help victims of serious injury or accident feel safe during potentially difficult social situations. And the dog was probably handy in this particular social situation.

The video immediately went viral with online users criticizing this verbally abusive tirade.

The woman repeatedly states that she finds animals, dogs included, in restaurants to be “gross.” When the screaming woman claims the veteran shouldn’t be allowed to bring his dog inside, one waitress is heard saying, “He’s allowed because he fought for our country.” The aggressive diner then responds erratically, claiming her husband was also a serviceman who died abroad and continued screaming. “It’s nasty to me, it’s f******* disgusting,” before calling various diners “w***es and b***es.”

Standing alongside a seemingly embarrassed male companion, the woman continues her tirade as the veteran tries to calm her down. It doesn’t take long for her to eventually begin threatening the staff to “shut her up.”

“Who’s gonna shut me up? Are you gonna make me? [sic],” pointing at workers. The staff continues to try to encourage the woman to leave, telling her she’s welcome to go eat somewhere else but she continues to yell loudly. After swearing and making more threats to more diners, the woman leaves the restaurant only to walk back in and shout, “It’s my opinion, none of y’all are gonna change it. It’s disgusting, it’s gross!”

Ironically, the “gross” and “disgusting” dog had more composure than the irate woman railing against its presence.

Hurricane Maria Could Take Out Power in Puerto Rico Indefinitely and It’s Too Late to Prepare

Sep 19th 2017, 17:53, by Daisy Luther

hurricanes

It seems like no one can catch a break this hurricane season. Many islands, including the US territory of Puerto Rico, are taking a second hit from Hurricane Maria just over a week after Hurricane Irma tore through the region, and in their already weakened state, the damage could take out the power indefinitely.

Dominica was devastated last night

Hurricane Maria reached Category 5 levels yesterday just before making landfall in Dominica. The small island was absolutely devastated. No respecter of persons, it even ripped the roof off of the home of the Prime Minister.

Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit posted on Facebook:

Initial reports are of widespread devastation. So far we have lost all what money can buy and replace. My greatest fear for the morning is that we will wake to news of serious physical injury and possible deaths as a result of likely landslides triggered by persistent rains.

So, far the winds have swept away the roofs of almost every person I have spoken to or otherwise made contact with. The roof to my own official residence was among the first to go and this apparently triggered an avalanche of torn away roofs in the city and the countryside.

Come tomorrow morning we will hit the road, as soon as the all clear is given, in search of the injured and those trapped in the rubble.

I am honestly not preoccupied with physical damage at this time, because it is devastating…indeed, mind boggling. My focus now is in rescuing the trapped and securing medical assistance for the injured.

We will need help, my friend, we will need help of all kinds.

It is too early to speak of the condition of the air and seaports, but I suspect both will be inoperable for a few days. That is why I am eager now to solicit the support of friendly nations and organisations with helicopter services, for I personally am eager to get up and get around the country to see and determine what’s needed. (source)

Dominica has a population of 72,000 people and is 289 square miles.

During the storm’s siege on Dominica, it had maximum sustained winds of 150 mph and was downgraded to a Category 4, then an hour later, regraded to a Category 5.

After hitting Dominica, Hurricane Maria when past Martinique and Barbados causing little damage. The island of Guadeloupe, however, has lost all communication, so we don’t know how bad the damage was there at this time. This video was uploaded before communication was lost.

This video was taken on Monday night in Petit-Bourg, Guadeloupe, as Hurricane #Maria pummels the island https://t.co/4Ac70NdWrt pic.twitter.com/I8oxDYZcrt

— CNN (@CNN) September 19, 2017

Hurricane warnings have been also posted for the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, St. Kitts, Nevis, Montserrat, Martinique, and St. Lucia. A tropical storm warning has been issued for Antigua and Barbuda, Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Maarten and Anguilla.

Next up: Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico, a United States territory, sustained a billion dollars in damage from Hurricane Irma, and now they’re up for Round Two, expecting a direct hit from Hurricane Maria tonight or tomorrow morning. Hurricane Maria has regained power and is again a Category 5 storm.

Governor Ricardo Rossello warned citizens:

“If you are in a flood zone or in a wood house, your life is in danger. There has never been an event like this in our history in the last 100 years. Our call is for all citizens to move to a safe place.” (source)

The governor also imposed rationing of batteries, milk, canned foods, flashlights and other supplies. Fuel was not rationed. (source) With supplies being doled out like this, there is absolutely no chance at this late hour to prepare for the long haul.  If someone isn’t well-prepared already, it’s too late to do more than the bare minimum now.

Puerto Rico’s financial problems certainly make the idea of recovery a lot more difficult. Bloomberg reports:

Puerto Rico is facing an active hurricane season with little financial ability to navigate a natural catastrophe. It filed for bankruptcy in May after years of economic decline and borrowing to fill budget gaps. A series of defaults have effectively left it unable to raise money in the capital markets. And its aging government-owned electric utility, the Electric Power Authority, is also operating under court protection from creditors. Puerto Rico’s emergency fund stood at about $32 million before Irma passed through.

Prepa, the government-run utility, is still trying to restore power to hundreds of thousands of residents after its electrical infrastructure sustained as much as $400 million of the nearly $1 billion of damage from Irma. It was already in need of upgrades because it relies on oil to produce most of its electricity and the median plant age is 44 years, more than twice the industry average. (source)

It’s entirely possible that Hurricane Maria will put the island in the dark for quite some time to come, completely changing their way of life. Gov. 70,000 people are still without power from their bout with Irma, and much more damage to the utility system is expected. Rossello said:

“We will not have sustainable electric infrastructure in the near future. We will be bringing in crews from outside of Puerto Rico to attend to these measures.” (source)

Philipe Schoene Roura, the editor of a San Juan, Puerto Rico-based newspaper, Caribbean Business, wrote:

Prepa Executive Director Ricardo Ramos Rodríguez recently said the powerlines carrying electricity in the public corporation’s system are in such a deteriorated state that a strong storm could leave the island without power for weeks.

“To give you a number, if during Hurricane Georges 100 lines went down in 1998, today the same [kind of ] hurricane would bring down 1,000,” the official candidly told Caribbean Business when asked about the possibility of Prepa’s system effectively withstanding the onslaught of a similar storm.

“The lifespan of most of Prepa’s equipment has expired. There is a risk that in light of this dismal infrastructure situation, a large atmospheric event hitting Puerto Rico could wreak havoc because we are talking about a very vulnerable and fragile system at the moment,” Ramos added…

…Francisco Guerrero (a fictitious name to protect his identity), a Prepa field worker for 23 years, said it would take months for Prepa to bring up Puerto Rico’s power system should a hurricane like Harvey strike the island.

The lack of linemen and other technical personnel, as well as a lack of equipment—including replacement utility poles for powerlines and replacement parts—are the issues of greatest concern among public corporation employees, who say they risk their lives working with equipment in poor condition that provides them with little safety.

Guerrero said that today only 580 linemen remain out of the 1,300 who were part of the workforce in previous years—and that’s not counting the upcoming retirement of another 90 linemen. Likewise, he said there are only 300 electrical line testers to serve the entire island.

The source also said that much of Prepa’s equipment dates back to the 1950s—and the more “modern” equipment that is still functional dates from the 1990s; in other words, it’s from the past century.

“If a hurricane like this one [Harvey] hits us, the system is not going to come online, I’d say, in over six months. Right now, the warehouses don’t even have materials. I’m talking about utility poles and other stuff,” Guerrero explained.

“How can you say that you have equipment that dates back to the 1950s and you are not buying parts to repair them? When it’s time for maintenance work, you don’t have the part and you leave things as they are, but there is an entry in the log saying maintenance was done. And yes, it was done, but the most important thing was not done, which was to replace that part,” he added.

Although he did not assign the debacle to former Prepa Chief Restructuring Officer Lisa Donahue’s order to stop buying supplies as the main cause for the lack of materials, he is certain the order was “the straw that broke the camel’s back.” (source)

If you are in the path of a hurricane and you are unable to evacuate, these tips may help. While it is too late to purchase supplies, some of the other ideas in this article may be helpful. Remember that surviving the storm is only a small part of the battle. It’s the aftermath that is the true challenge.

Everything could change in less than two weeks

Can you imagine living without electrical power for six months? This will completely change their way of life for many residents of Puerto Rico.

Yesterday, I wrote about people in Florida who are facing a few weeks without electricity, and suddenly, that doesn’t seem nearly as bad. At least on the mainland, there’s the possibility of leaving the area. On the mainland, you can get supplies. On an island, you’re totally isolated.

Think for a moment about how quickly this has gone down.

The country was already bankrupt, but now, with a one-two punch of natural disasters, there’s little way for them to recover. Unless a person was already well-prepared, there is not much chance of them stocking up now. In less than two weeks, everything could change for millions of people.

If you take no other lesson from all of this, consider how fast things can happen and stop procrastinating. Get prepared.

Freedom Is a Myth: We Are All Prisoners of the Police State’s Panopticon Village

Sep 19th 2017, 16:11, by John W. Whitehead

freedom libertywww.thedailysheeple.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/freedom-liberty-300×225.png 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 560px) 100vw, 560px” />

“We’re run by the Pentagon, we’re run by Madison Avenue, we’re run by television, and as long as we accept those things and don’t revolt we’ll have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche…. As long as we go out and buy stuff, we’re at their mercy… We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other people’s Villages, but we are all prisoners.”— Patrick McGoohan

First broadcast in Great Britain 50 years ago, The Prisoner—a dystopian television series described as “James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafka”—confronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned, monitored by militarized drones, and interrogated in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly tranquil retirement community known only as the Village. The Village is an idyllic setting with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

While luxurious and resort-like, the Village is a virtual prison disguised as a seaside paradise: its inhabitants have no true freedom, they cannot leave the Village, they are under constant surveillance, their movements are tracked by surveillance drones, and they are stripped of their individuality and identified only by numbers.

The series’ protagonist, played by Patrick McGoohan, is Number Six.

Number Two, the Village administrator, acts as an agent for the unseen and all-powerful Number One, whose identity is not revealed until the final episode.

“I am not a number. I am a free man,” was the mantra chanted on each episode of The Prisoner, which was largely written and directed by McGoohan.

In the opening episode (“The Arrival”), Number Six meets Number Two, who explains to him that he is in The Village because information stored “inside” his head has made him too valuable to be allowed to roam free “outside.”

Throughout the series, Number Six is subjected to interrogation tactics, torture, hallucinogenic drugs, identity theft, mind control, dream manipulation, and various forms of social indoctrination and physical coercion in order to “persuade” him to comply, give up, give in and subjugate himself to the will of the powers-that-be.

Number Six refuses to comply.

In every episode, Number Six resists the Village’s indoctrination methods, struggles to maintain his own identity, and attempts to escape his captors. “I will not make any deals with you,” he pointedly remarks to Number Two. “I’ve resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own.”

Yet no matter how far Number Six manages to get in his efforts to escape, it’s never far enough.

Watched by surveillance cameras and other devices, Number Six’s getaways are continuously thwarted by ominous white balloon-like spheres known as “rovers.” Still, he refuses to give up. “Unlike me,” he says to his fellow prisoners, “many of you have accepted the situation of your imprisonment, and will die here like rotten cabbages.”

Number Six’s escapes become a surreal exercise in futility, each episode an unfunny, unsettling Groundhog’s Day that builds to the same frustrating denouement: there is no escape.

As journalist Scott Thill concludes for Wired, “Rebellion always comes at a price. During the acclaimed run of The Prisoner, Number Six is tortured, battered and even body-snatched: In the episode ‘Do Not Forsake Me Oh My Darling,’ his mind is transplanted to another man’s body. Number Six repeatedly escapes The Village only to be returned to it in the end, trapped like an animal, overcome by a restless energy he cannot expend, and betrayed by nearly everyone around him.”

The series is a chilling lesson about how difficult it is to gain one’s freedom in a society in which prison walls are disguised within the trappings of technological and scientific progress, national security and so-called democracy.

As Thill noted when McGoohan died in 2009, “The Prisoner was an allegory of the individual, aiming to find peace and freedom in a dystopia masquerading as a utopia.”

The Prisoner’s Village is also an apt allegory for the American Police State: it gives the illusion of freedom while functioning all the while like a prison: controlled, watchful, inflexible, punitive, deadly and inescapable.

The American Police State, much like The Prisoner’s Village, is a metaphorical panopticon, a circular prison in which the inmates are monitored by a single watchman situated in a central tower. Because the inmates cannot see the watchman, they are unable to tell whether or not they are being watched at any given time and must proceed under the assumption that they are always being watched.

Eighteenth century social theorist Jeremy Bentham envisioned the panopticon prison to be a cheaper and more effective means of “obtaining power of mind over mind, in a quantity hitherto without example.”

Bentham’s panopticon, in which the prisoners are used as a source of cheap, menial labor, has become a model for the modern surveillance state in which the populace is constantly being watched, controlled and managed by the powers-that-be and funding its existence.

Nowhere to run and nowhere to hide: this is the new mantra of the architects of the police state and their corporate collaborators (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix, Google, Instagram, etc.).

Government eyes are watching you.

They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.

Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to form a picture of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.

When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies.

Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we’re approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between obeying the dictates of the government—i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be—and maintaining our individuality, integrity and independence.

When people talk about privacy, they mistakenly assume it protects only that which is hidden behind a wall or under one’s clothing. The courts have fostered this misunderstanding with their constantly shifting delineation of what constitutes an “expectation of privacy.” And technology has furthered muddied the waters.

However, privacy is so much more than what you do or say behind locked doors. It is a way of living one’s life firm in the belief that you are the master of your life, and barring any immediate danger to another person (which is far different from the carefully crafted threats to national security the government uses to justify its actions), it’s no one’s business what you read, what you say, where you go, whom you spend your time with, and how you spend your money.

Unfortunately, George Orwell’s 1984—where “you had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized”—has now become our reality.

We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology, which answers not to us but to our government and corporate rulers.

Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears.

A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.

This doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.

Stingray devices mounted on police cars to warrantlessly track cell phones, Doppler radar devices that can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, license plate readers that can record up to 1800 license plates per minutesidewalk and “public space” cameras coupled with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology that lay the groundwork for police “pre-crime” programspolice body cameras that turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras, the internet of things: all of these technologies add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.

As French philosopher Michel Foucault concluded in his 1975 book Discipline and Punish, “Visibility is a trap.”

This is the electronic concentration camp—the panopticon prison—the Village—in which we are now caged.

It is a prison from which there will be no escape if the government gets it way.

As Glenn Greenwald notes:

“The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what [government officials] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals. This dynamic – the hallmark of a healthy and free society – has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable.”

Even now, the Trump Administration is working to make some of the National Security Agency’s vast spying powers permanent.

In fact, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is pushing for Congress to permanently renew Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which allows government snoops to warrantlessly comb through and harvest vast quantities of our communications.

And just like that, we’re back in the Village, our escape plans foiled, our future bleak.

Except this is no surprise ending: for those who haven’t been taking the escapist blue pill, who haven’t fallen for the Deep State’s phony rhetoric, who haven’t been lured in by the promise of a political savior, we never stopped being prisoners.

So how do we break out?

For starters, wake up. Resist the urge to comply.

The struggle to remain “oneself in a society increasingly obsessed with conformity to mass consumerism,” writes Steven Paul Davies, means that superficiality and image trump truth and the individual. The result is the group mind and the tyranny of mob-think.

Think for yourself. Be an individual. As McGoohan commented in 1968, “At this moment individuals are being drained of their personalities and being brainwashed into slaves… As long as people feel something, that’s the great thing. It’s when they are walking around not thinking and not feeling, that’s tough. When you get a mob like that, you can turn them into the sort of gang that Hitler had.”

In a media-dominated age in which the lines between entertainment, politics and news reporting are blurred, it is extremely difficult to distinguish fact from fiction. We are so bombarded with images, dictates, rules and punishments and stamped with numbers from the day we are born that it is a wonder we ever ponder a concept such as freedom. As McGoohan declared, “Freedom is a myth.”

In the end, as I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, we are all prisoners of our own mind.

In fact, it is in the mind that prisons are created for us. And in the lockdown of political correctness, it becomes extremely difficult to speak or act individually without being ostracized. Thus, so often we are forced to retreat inwardly into our minds, a prison without bars from which we cannot escape, and into the world of video games and television and the Internet.

We have come full circle from Bentham’s Panopticon to McGoohan’s Village to Huxley’s Brave New World.

As cultural theorist Neil Postman observed:

What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared we would become a captive audience. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared that we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.” In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate would ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us.

You want to be free? Break out of the circle.

Wikileaks Publishes “Spy Files Russia” Detailing Russia’s Mass Surveillance System

Sep 19th 2017, 15:22, by Zero Hedge

wikileakswww.thedailysheeple.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/wikileaks-300×225.jpg 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 560px) 100vw, 560px” />

Perhaps in an attempt to refute recurring allegations that it has traditionally focused on exposing only US state secrets, if not being an outright covert and subversive Moscow front, today Wikileaks released a new cache of documents which it claims detail surveillance apparatus used by the Russian state to spy on Internet and mobile users. It’s the first time the organization has leaked material directly pertaining to the Russian state.

RELEASE: Spy Files #Russia https://t.co/CJMQVrNXef #SORM #FSB pic.twitter.com/QZPKY0HEWx

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) September 19, 2017

The full datadump can be found here.

In its summary of the cache of mostly Russian-language documents, Wikileaks claims they show how a long-established Russian company which supplies software to telcos is also installing infrastructure – with the government’s blessing – that enables Russian state agencies to tap into, search and spy on citizens’ digital activity, suggesting a similar state-funded mass surveillance program to the one utilized by the U.S.’s NSA or by GCHQ in the U.K. (both of which were detailed in the 2013 Snowden disclosures).

And speaking of, shortly following the publication, another famous whistleblower, one also exiled and currently residing in Russia, Edward Snowden tweeted “Plot twist: @Wikileaks publishes details on Russia’s increasingly oppressive internet surveillance industry.”

tweet

To be sure, arguments have already broken out on Twitter suggesting that Wikileaks/Assange is trying to deflect from charges that it is a front for the Kremlin by finally dumping “something” on Russia. (see this tweet comment thread as one example). Making matters more complicated, it’s not possible at this point to verify the value or veracity of the latest Wikileaks document release.

The documents published today by Wikileaks (there are just 34 “base documents” in this leak) relate to a St. Petersburg-based company, called Peter-Service, which it claims is a contractor for Russian state surveillance. According to Tech Crunch, the company was set up in 1992 to provide billing solutions before going on to become a major supplier of software to the mobile telecoms industry.

Wikileaks writes:

The technologies developed and deployed by PETER-SERVICE today go far beyond the classical billing process and extend into the realms of surveillance and control. Although compliance to the strict surveillance laws is mandatory in Russia, rather than being forced to comply PETER-SERVICE appears to be quite actively pursuing partnership and commercial opportunities with the state intelligence apparatus.

As a matter of fact PETER-SERVICE is uniquely placed as a surveillance partner due to the remarkable visibility their products provide into the data of Russian subscribers of mobile operators, which expose to PETER-SERVICE valuable metadata, including phone and message records, device identifiers (IMEI, MAC addresses), network identifiers (IP addresses), cell tower information and much more. This enriched and aggregated metadata is of course of interest to Russian authorities, whose access became a core component of the system architecture.

One of Wikileaks’ media partners for the release, the Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports that the documents cover “an extended timespan from 2007 to June 2015”, and describes the contents as “extremely technical”. It also caveats that the documents do not mention Russia’s spy agency, the FSB, but rather “speak only of state agencies”, a formula it asserts “certainly includes law enforcement, who use metadata for legal interception”. It also says the documents do “not clarify what other state apparatus accesses those data through the solution of the St. Petersburg company”.

Wikileaks says that under Russia law operators must maintain a Data Retention System (DRS), which can store data for up to three years. La Repubblica reports that Peter-Service’s DRS stores telephone traffic data and “allows Russian state agencies to query the database of all stored data in search of information” — which it specifies can include calls made by a certain telephone company’s customer; payment systems used; the cell phone number to which a user is calling.

“The manuals published by WikiLeaks contain the images of interfaces that allow you to search within these huge data fields, so access is simple and intuitive,” it adds.

Some technical details:

  • According to Wikileaks, Peter-Service’s DRS solution can handle 500,000,000 connections per day in one cluster. While the claimed average search time for subscriber related-records from a single day is ten seconds. “State intelligence authorities use the Protocol 538 adapter built into the DRS to access stored information,” it adds.
  • Peter-Service has also apparently developed a tool called TDM (Traffic Data Mart) — which allows the database to be queried to determine “where users’ data traffic is stored in order to understand visited sites, forums, social media”, as well as how much time is spent on a certain site and the electronic device used to access it.
  • Wikileaks describes TDM as “a system that records and monitors IP traffic for all mobile devices registered with the operator”,  and says it maintains a list of categorized domain names — “which cover all areas of interest for the state. These categories include blacklisted sites, criminal sites, blogs, webmail, weapons, botnet, narcotics, betting, aggression, racism, terrorism and many more”.
  • “Based on the collected information the system allows the creation of reports for subscriber devices (identified by IMEI/TAC, brand, model) for a specified time range: Top categories by volume, top sites by volume, top sites by time spent, protocol usage (browsing, mail, telephony, bittorrent) and traffic/time distribution,” it adds.

Wikileaks points to a 2013 Peter-Service slideshow presentation (it says this also appears to be publicly available on the company’s website), which it claims is targeted not at telco customers but at state entities such as Russia’s FSB and Interior Ministry (despite this document apparently being in the public domain) — in which the company focuses on a new product, called DPI*GRID; which it says is a hardware device for Deep Packet Inspection that takes the form of “black boxes” apparently able to handle 10Gb/s traffic per unit.

Wikileaks adds that “the national providers are aggregating Internet traffic in their infrastructure and are redirecting/duplicating the full stream to DPI*GRID units. The units inspect and analyse traffic (the presentation does not describe that process in much detail); the resulting metadata and extracted information are collected in a database for further investigation. A similar, yet smaller solution called MDH/DRS is available for regional providers who send aggregated IP traffic via a 10Gb/s connection to MDH for processing.”

Wikileaks also makes a point of noting that the presentation was written “just a few months after Edward Snowden disclosed the NSA mass surveillance program and its cooperation with private U.S. IT-corporations such as Google and Facebook”.

“Drawing specifically on the NSA Prism program, the presentation offers law enforcement, intelligence and other interested parties, to join an alliance in order to establish equivalent data-mining operations in Russia,” it adds — sticking its boot firmly back into U.S. government mass surveillance programs.

Thermostaat omlaag: afvallen zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/thermostaat_omlaag_afvallen#rss Sep 19th 2017, 08:04
Je wilt een paar kilo afvallen? Gefeliciteerd, het is het juiste seizoen er voor. Door de kachel lager te zetten, kun je gewicht verliezen. Onderzoekers van de Universiteit Maastricht hebben een studie gepubliceerd waaruit blijkt dat je prima kunt wennen aan een huis waarin het 15 graden is. Na verloop van tijd beleef je dat niet meer als kou. Groot bijkomend voordeel: je valt door die temperaturen af. Onderzoekers uit Maastricht constateerden bij proefpersonen die per dag een paar uur in de kou zaten minder wit vet (de soort waardoor je dik wordt) en meer bruin vet (de soort die door het lichaam als brandstof wordt gebruikt). Daardoor vielen die proefpersonen af. Eerder Japans onderzoek toonde aan dat ook bij 17 graden de kilo’s er al af vlogen. Door te leven in koudere temperaturen gaat je stofwisseling sterk omhoog. Proefpersonen verbranden soms wel 400 calorieën per uur bij rust. Dat is alsof je een uur stevig wandelt. Kou kan niet de plaats innemen van flink bewegen, maar wel een aanvulling bieden op je sportregime, zo schrijven de Nederlanders in het vakblad Trends in Endocrinology & Metabolism. Uit het voorlopige onderzoek blijkt dat het variëren met temperaturen het beste lijkt te werken. Daarbij mag de temperatuur in je huis of kantoor best dalen, zolang je maar niet gaan rillen.
EU: neofeodalisme regelen we gewoon zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/eu_neofeodalisme_regelen_we_gewoon#rss Sep 18th 2017, 20:08
De EU en haar burgers: het blijft een ongemakkelijke relatie tussen die twee. Ondankbaar als de gelukkige bevolking van de statenbond is, hebben de mensen aldaar niet begrepen dat een neoliberale grondwet (nota bene verworpen door Frankrijk en Nederland) alleen de „gewone mens“ dient, een mega-inflatoire eenheidsmunt in economisch uiteenlopende gebieden gewoon „lekker makkelijk“ is, mega-bank bail-ins/outs het „systeem“ redden waarvan ook zij profiteren, gratis geld voor banken en corporations ooit ook bij hen aankomt (de verliezen op pensioen- en spaargeld laten we even voor wat het is), het verschuiven van risico naar een Centrale Bank of „reddingscherm“ gewoon het juiste is en dat opgeven van economische invloed, inrichting van samenleving en invloed op wetgeving normale onderdelen zijn van „moderne“ handelsakkoorden. Waarom miljoenen Europese burgers, wel wetend dat zonder de EU wereldoorlogen uitbreken (uitzondering: de huidige Europese militaire opbouw aan de Russische grens) en het licht uitgaat, zich aan anti-Europese populisten wenden, is tamelijk onbegrijpelijk. Dat een Groot-Brittannië geen deel meer wil zijn van de verdere financiële, militaire en machtsintegratie onder leiding van de technocraten in Brussel en Duitsland en via een Brexit wegloopt, is onvergefelijk.

5G-straling zal resulteren in tragische, onherstelbare schade zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/5g_straling_zal_resulteren_in_tragische_onherstelbare_schade#rss Sep 18th 2017, 16:33
Meer dan 180 wetenschappers en artsen uit 35 landen hebben de Europese Commissie in een briefgevraagd om de uitrol van 5G uit te stellen. Dat schrijven Belgische media.
Volgens de experts leidt grotere blootstelling aan de straling die mobieltjes uitzenden tot kanker en onvruchtbaarheid.
“Wij zijn bezorgd dat grotere blootstelling aan 5G-straling zal resulteren in tragische, onherstelbare schade,” zei oncoloog Lennart Hardell van de Universiteit van Örebro in Zweden.
Schadelijke gevolgen
Hij merkte op dat uit wetenschappelijke studies is gebleken dat draadloze producten schadelijke gevolgen hebben voor onze gezondheid.
Een studie uit 2015 door het Amerikaanse National Toxicology Program toonde bijvoorbeeld aan dat bij dieren die werden blootgesteld aan gsm-straling vaker hersentumoren en hartafwijkingen vastgesteld werden.
Om het 5G-netwerk uit te kunnen rollen moeten meer gsm-masten in stedelijke gebieden worden gebouwd.
Beïnvloed
Op deze manier kan haast niemand nog ontsnappen aan de schadelijke gevolgen van de straling, aldus de groep wetenschappers en dokters.
Uit onderzoek is ook gebleken dat de telecomindustrie studies over de impact van straling in het verleden vaak heeft beïnvloed.
Onafhankelijk onderzoek
Om die reden pleit de groep voor een onafhankelijk onderzoek naar de gevolgen van 5G-straling.
De wetenschappers willen dat de Europese Commissie de uitrol uitstelt tot zo’n onafhankelijk onderzoek is afgerond.
Sint Maarten, het Nederlands koninkrijk, Venezuela en Dutch Shell zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/sint_maarten_het_nederlands_koninkrijk_venezuela_en_dutch_shell#rss Sep 18th 2017, 16:28
Minister Ronald Plasterk heeft gereageerd op de uitspraken van de premier van Sint Maarten in het NRC, waarin hij stelt dat de Nederlandse mariniers niets gedaan hebben om de avondklok te handhaven en plunderingen tegen te gaan. Natuurlijk moet minister Ronald Plasterk ontkennen dat de Nederlandse mariniers niets gedaan hebben tijdens de plunderingen op Sint Maarten. Minister ‘alles is lief’ Plasterk is immers de minister van Koninkrijksrelaties (lees: Royal Dutch Shell) en dus moet hij alles goed praten. Premier William Marlin zou verwijten naar zijn eigen regering wegwuiven, zo is naar verluidt de opstelling van de premier. Nederland valt natuurlijk niets te verwijten. “Het is een orkaan geweest en wij zijn alleen maar behulpzaam!” Onze nationale knuffelminister Plasterk kwam zelfs nog even een dansje doen bij de aftrap van de landelijke geldinzamelingsactie voor Sint Maarten.
Het is wel interessant om te zien hoe het spel gespeeld lijkt te worden. Alle aandacht wordt afgeleid met een relletje over plunderingen op Sint Maarten, terwijl de échte plunderingen waarschijnlijk door de Nederlandse marine zijn uitgevoerd, iets verderop, door het zekerstellen van de PDVSA olie. Dat gekissebis over plunderingen op Sint Maarten tussen Ronald Plasterk en William Marlin is dus waarschijnlijk niets meer dan afleiding en geënsceneerd, zodat u kijkt naar de plek waar de (media) goochelaar wilt dat u kijkt en afgeleid wordt van de plaats waar de goocheltruc echt uitgevoerd wordt. Lees verder voor de toelichting.
Natuurlijk kunnen we geen hard bewijs leveren van de bewuste veroorzaking van orkaan Irma, maar dat HAARP-technologie bestaat, is bijna niet meer uit te vlakken. De technische middelen bestaan om juist boven zeegebied een orkaan op te wekken of een bestaande orkaan van richting te doen veranderen. De werking van deze HAARP-technologie ziet u toegelicht in het filmpje van mijn vorige artikel over orkaan Irma en Sint Maarten. Hieronder ziet u nogmaals een toelichtingsfilmpje. Als u eenmaal begrijpt hoe deze technologie werkt, zouden we op zijn minst kunnen concluderen dat er sprake is van nalatigheid in de richting van Sint Maarten. De orkaan had immers van het eiland af gestuurd kunnen worden.
Hoe houd je een land zonder noemenswaardig leger, maar met nuttige belangen voor Royal Dutch Shell, onder de duim? Zorg dat het financieel compleet afhankelijk van je is. Dus een wederopbouw na een oorlog (zoals in Libië) is 1 van de methodes; de andere is ‘een natuurramp’ (waarbij je de natuur een handje helpt). Sint Maarten zal natuurlijk bij de Nederlandse staat aan moeten kloppen voor leningen ten behoeve van de wederopbouw, maar eerlijk gezegd denk ik dat dat niet het grootste issue is. Het bestuur van Sint Maarten zit natuurlijk al volledig in de zak van Nederland en het was al compleet afhankelijk van Nederlandse steun. Er is iets veel groters aan de hand. Het draait waarschijnlijk allemaal om Venezuela, de Venezolaanse olieproductie en een gewenste ‘regime change’ aldaar.
Hoe zit dat dan? Sint Maarten is maar een eilandje van 34 vierkante kilometer en heeft een bevolking van iets meer dan 40 duizend. Wat is daar nu interessant aan? Zouden we dat eiland niet gewoon af kunnen schrijven uit ons koninkrijkje? Het kost ons potverdorie alleen maar geld! Nou nee, het land heeft een strategisch zeer belangrijke ligging. Het ligt namelijk op 990 km ten noordoosten van de Venezolaanse kust. En als u Venezuela leest, leest u ‘olie’. Ziet u de (olie)dollartekens al in de ogen van onze koning en zijn vazal Plasterk? Nog niet? Nou, kijk dan nog eens goed! Het zit zo: Venezuela wil niet echt meewerken aan een ‘regime change’ en dat vinden wij van het Westen nooit zo leuk. Wij willen dat zo’n land dan gewoon meewerkt en luistert. En daarom wordt het land al een tijdje geboycot door de Westerse mogendheden (onder leiding van de VS). We willen daar voet aan de grond en dus moet de huidige regering weg. Die regering wil maar niet buigen; ondanks dat de inflatie honderden procenten omhooggeschoten is en mensen elkaar uitmoorden voor een brood. Dus hoe kun je zo’n land de laatste slag toedienen? Dat kun je doen door de regering haar enige inkomstenbron af te pakken. Dus wie of wat moet je dan raken? Juist: de financiële levensader; de olieproductie; oliemaatschappij PDVSA. Wie staat ondertussen klaar om de oliehandel over te nemen als de regering in Venezuela eenmaal valt? U raadt het al: Royal Dutch Shell. Toegegeven; het is enigszins speculatief, maar het klinkt plausibel vindt u niet?
“Maar wat heeft dat dan met Sint Maarten te maken? Waarom zou je daarvoor een orkaan op Sint Maarten bewerkstelligen door middel van HAARP-technologie?“, zou uw vraag terecht kunnen zijn. Welnu, Sint Maarten is blijkbaar een belangrijk olieopslag- en overslaggebied voor PDVSA (de Venezolaanse oliemaatschappij). Niet alleen Sint Maarten werd trouwens getroffen door orkaan Irma, maar ook Sint Eustatius. Sint Eustatius ligt op ongeveer 60 km van Sint Maarten.
Op 14 juni 2017 meldde Reuters het volgende:
Venezuelan state-run oil company PDVSA is moving millions of barrels of oil from a Bahamas storage facility after terminating a contract with the owner, U.S. Buckeye Partners LP, according to internal data and sources close to the decision.
Buckeye and PDVSA had tried to resolve payment delays and other frequent problems that stalled some shipments, the sources said. But PDVSA decided to shift its oil to the Statia terminal, operated by U.S. NuStar Energy LP , in the neighboring island of St. Eustatius.
lees verder..
Het is een behoorlijke complottheorie die ik hier lanceer en dus ik vat hem nog even voor u samen terwijl u ondertussen flink doneert aan Giro 5125: De Nederlandse regering (lees: de vazalstaat onder leiding van Royal Dutch Shell’s koning Willem Alexander) heeft in samenwerking met de VS gebruik gemaakt van HAARP om een orkaan te veroorzaken. Dat kan boven oceaangebied iets makkelijker dan op het vaste land, vanwege de snelle luchtstijging en wolkvorming. Deze orkaan is gebruikt om de olieterminals van PDVSA lam te leggen, met als collatoral damage het wegblazen van de gammele huisjes van het arme deel van de bevolking. De Nederlandse marine stond klaar om de terminals en de olie in beslag te nemen en daarmee is een stevige klap toegediend aan PDVSA; en dus aan de financiële slagader van de Venezolaanse regering. Het is dus een kwestie van tijd totdat de Venezolaanse regering uit geldgebrek het bijltje erbij neer moet leggen, omdat het de opstanden niet meer kan onderdrukken vanwege liquiditeitsproblemen en het niet langer kunnen betalen van de salarissen van politie en leger. Het is dus een kwestie van tijd dat daar ‘regime change’ komt en Royal Dutch Shell de olieproductie van PDVSA over kan nemen. Leve de koning!

NuStar’s St. Eustatius terminal damaged by Irma, no restart date set Reuters Staff
1 MIN READ
HOUSTON (Reuters) – Nustar Energy’s oil terminal in the Caribbean island of St. Eustatius suffered damage to several tanks and other equipment due to Hurricane Irma, but all the U.S. firm’s employees are safe and no oil spills were registered, it said in a statement.
NuStar’s Statia terminal has the capacity to store 13.03 million barrels of crude and products. The company also said that no restart date has yet been set, and that it will be working on Thursday to restore power at the facility.
“Despite the damage and major clean-up effort, we feel like we fared very well considering the significant power of this storm,” it said.
Toasted Cars On 9/11 zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/toasted_cars_on_9_11#rss Sep 18th 2017, 11:14
Nonconcensusical 1 jaar geleden The cars were on the edge of the microwave field. You put a metal fork in a microwave, it sparks, but doesn’t get hot. The sheet metal on the cars vibrated the paint off, as it was releasing the microwave/electro-static energy. The engines, door handles and the glass were to dense to release the energy, so they melted/shattered. Gas through a microwave produces a plasma, heard there were broken gas lines. The people in the hologram hole, were taking off their clothes, because they were wet and microwaves boil water. The metal glowed for so long, because the molecules were vibrating from the inside out. The atoms were being repelled and attracted at the same time. (van der Waals force and opposing electro-static force). Electro-static force is the main force holding atoms/molecules, together. Gravity is so weak at the nano scale, its not even calculated! The towers were vibrated like tuning forks, until they vibrated apart, into molecules. Turning the concrete to dust and throwing it outward like foam. Using the electro-static/angular momentum of Hurricane Erin. To charge the space between the speaker like dome in the atmosphere, created by HAARP. and the towers and buildings. The flash, when the hologram hit (points close), (Points open) electrostatic charge builds, between the tower and HAARPs dome in the atmosphere. HAARP cycles off (duty cycle), dome in atmosphere collapses at the speed of gravity (like the towers). Repeat, flash, charge … What was it every 26? minutes. Molecules are held together by the van der Waals electro-static force, an opposing electro-static polarity could break this bond, with the power of a hurricane. And Brookhaven aligns with the towers, Hurricane Erin and probably HAARP. Brookhaven was working on turning solid materials into liquid! It hasn’t happened around the world because there’s only so many particle accelerators.
Nederland voert oorlog met Syrië zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/nederland_voert_oorlog_met_syrie#rss Sep 17th 2017, 19:36
Uit een Kamerbrief van de demissionair Minister van Defensie blijkt dat Nederland per 1 januari in oorlog is met Syrië. De Minister stuurt vier operationele F-16’s met de benodigde ondersteuning, een detachement van ongeveer 150 militairen (Air Task Force Middle East –ATFME), naar het Midden-Oosten om ingezet te worden in de luchtcampagne van de coalitie in Oost-Syrië en Irak.
Nederland zet vanaf 1 januari tot en met 31 december 2018 naast de vier F-16’s ook 155 militairen in voor de training en Advise & Assist van Iraakse strijdkrachten, inclusief de Peshmerga (Capacity Building Mission Iraq – CBMI).
De Syrische president Assad heeft alleen aan Rusland om hulp gevraagd in de strijd tegen ISIS en andere groeperingen. Andere landen die zowel het luchtruim schenden als het land binnendringen zijn in staat van oorlog met Assad. Ook Nederland doet mee aan deze oorlog. Het demissionaire kabinet beslist dit zonder geknipper met de ogen en sleurt Nederland een oorlog in, zogenoemd om het terrorisme te bestrijden. Maar dan is het nog steeds niet geoorloofd om een land zonder toestemming met je leger binnen te vallen. Nederland volgt hier de VS.
De actie van Nederland is te vergelijken met een verklaring van bijvoorbeeld India die vanaf januari rond schrijft dat zij – ongevraagd – de provincie Overijssel gaat bevrijden van Engelse verzetsstrijders die tegen de Nederlandse regering vechten.
De oorlogsverklaring is opgenomen in de Kamerbrief verlenging Nederlandse bijdrage aan de internationale strijd tegen ISIS. De demissionaire regering verklaart dat in oostelijk Syrië opgetreden moet worden om te voorkomen dat ISIS-strijders via Syrië terugkeren naar Irak en dat Syrië daartoe zelf niet in staat is.
Letterlijk staat er in de Kamerbrief:
“De volkenrechtelijke rechtsgrond voor de inzet van Nederlandse militairen in Syrië wordt gevormd door het recht op collectieve zelfverdediging op basis van artikel 51 van het VN-Handvest, ten behoeve van de verdediging van Irak. Er is nog steeds sprake van doorlopende aanvallen vanuit Syrië op Irak, die door het ISIS-hoofdkwartier in Syrië worden aangestuurd. Ook is de regering van Syrië nog steeds niet in staat deze gewapende aanvallen van ISIS op Irak te stoppen. Evenmin is de Syrische regering in staat om de strijders en wapens tegen te houden die voortdurend vanuit Syrië naar Irak worden gestuurd voor inzet in de gewapende strijd in Irak. Nederland blijft de volkenrechtelijke rechtsgrond voor de inzet van Nederlandse militairen in Syrië voortdurend kritisch tegen het licht houden.”
De internationale coalitie tegen ISIS, onder leiding van de Verenigde Staten, bestaat inmiddels uit 73 landen en internationale organisaties die uiteenlopende (militaire en niet-militaire) bijdragen leveren aan de strijd. Van deze landen maken er 30 deel uit van de militaire coalitie. Op 25 mei 2017 is ook de NAVO toegetreden tot de anti-ISIS coalitie.
Volgens de Minister zijn juist Nederlandse F16’s nodig omdat deze “naast Amerikaanse toestellen, als enige over wapens die hiervoor bijzonder geschikt zijn. Mede daarom zal Nederland vanaf 1 januari 2018 de bijdrage met F-16’s in de strijd tegen ISIS met vier operationele toestellen hervatten, voor de duur van een jaar. Nederland en de coalitie blijven zich tot het uiterste inspannen om burgerslachtoffers te vermijden.”
“De Nederlandse F-16’s zullen, net als eerder het geval was (Kamerstuk 27 925 nr. 570), worden ingezet boven Irak en Oost-Syrië. Boven Oost-Syrië worden de F-16’s ingezet voor het aanpakken van belangrijke strategische doelen in de aanvoerlijnen van ISIS vanuit Oost-Syrië naar Irak. Hierbij worden geen acties uitgevoerd die direct ten goede komen aan het Assad-regime.”
Nederland loopt zelfs het risico in conflict te kunnen komen met Rusland. De Kamerbrief hierover: “Door het verschuiven van de frontlinies opereren de Syrische en Russische strijdkrachten in toenemende mate in het oostelijke deel van Syrië. Dit vereist de nodige deconflictie in het luchtruim. Ondanks soms felle wederzijdse retoriek verloopt deze deconflictie tot nu toe goed.”
Volgens het Ministerie van Defensie leverde Nederland in de periode van oktober 2014 tot juli 2016 al eerder F16 straaljagers voor luchtaanvallen eerst boven Irak en later ook boven Syrië. Onder de naam Air Task Force Middle East was het onderdeel van een internationale coalitie. Meer hierover in vorig artikel Nederland medeschuldig aan oorlogsmisdaden.

Wetenschappers: uitbarsting supervulkaan door kernproef Noord Korea zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/wetenschappers_uitbarsting_supervulkaan_door_kernproef_noord_korea#rss Sep 17th 2017, 19:05
De Paektu supervulkaan bij de grens met China kan door nieuwe ondergrondse kernproeven getriggerd worden.
Na de laatste Noord Koreaanse kernproef zijn wetenschappers bezorgd dat nog meer ondergrondse explosies van deze omvang de actieve supervulkaan Paektu in het noorden van het land kan doen uitbarsten. Eerder dit jaar schreven we diverse malen over de Yellowstone supervulkaan in de VS, die al duizenden kleine aardschokken en aardbevingen heeft veroorzaakt, en die volgens Amerikaanse experts mogelijk veel eerder kan uitbarsten dan gedacht. Supervulkanen hebben de potentie om miljoenen slachtoffers te maken, en in het slechtste geval zelfs een einde te maken aan bijna al het leven op Aarde.

De meest recente kernproef, volgens het regime in Pyongyang met zijn eerste waterstofbom, produceerde volgens schattingen een dreun van 300 kilohertz, en heeft China doen besluiten om de metingen op radioactiviteit vlakbij de grens met Noord Korea verder op te voeren. Volgens Newsweek registreerden de Chinezen minder dan 10 minuten na de explosie een serie mysterieuze seismische schokken, naast de aardbeving die door de wereldmedia werden bericht.
Die schokken waren dermate hevig, dat Beijing besloot om het natuurreservaat bij de grens in het Changbai gebergte te sluiten, omdat men niet alleen bang is voor grote aardverschuivingen, maar ook dat de supervulkaan Paektu getriggerd kan worden. Volgens Disclose.tv kunnen bij een eruptie, waarbij enorme hoeveelheden magma, zwavel en giftig as in de atmosfeer worden gestoten, miljoenen mensen omkomen, en loopt zelfs al het leven op Aarde gevaar.
In een nieuw artikel in het wetenschappelijke blad Nature’s Scientific Reports wordt gezegd dat ‘een ondergrondse nucleaire testexplosie vlakbij een actieve vulkaan een directe bedreiging vormt’, omdat de magmakamer van een vulkaan door de schokgolven kan worden verstoord en geactiveerd. De Paektu supervulkaan kende voor het laatst in 1903 een (beperkte) uitbarsting, maar is nog steeds actief.
Riskant plan voor supervulkaan Yellowstone
Op 21 augustus schreven we dat de NASA een zeer riskant plan heeft bedacht om te voorkomen dat supervulkanen zoals in het Yellowstone nationale park tot uitbarsting komen. De kans dat er een allesvernietigende ‘categorie 7’ eruptie van deze vulkaan komt is volgens wetenschappers flink toegenomen nu er alleen al dit jaar duizenden aardschokken in het gebied zijn geregistreerd.
Het NASA plan behelst het druppelsgewijs afkoelen van de vulkaan door een 10 kilometer diepe tunnel naar de magmakamer te boren, en daar onder hoge druk water in te pompen. Het water zou als 350 graden hete stoom weer terugkeren, en op deze wijze de vulkaan heel langzaam afkoelen. Door in de kap over de magmakamer te boren, kan deze echter barsten, waardoor er schadelijke gassen vrijkomen en de vulkaan juist getriggerd wordt.
De vorige Amerikaanse regering hield in 2014 serieus rekening met een spoedige uitbarsting, en gaf honderden miljarden dollars uit voor slechts 10 jaar lopende contracten met Argentinië, Brazilië en Australië, voor de opvang van mogelijk miljoenen Amerikaanse vluchtelingen na zo’n verwoestende catastrofe, die in één klap een einde aan de VS kan maken en het hele noordelijke halfrond in een ‘nucleaire winter’ kan storten, die vrijwel niemand zal overleven.
Open reactie aan Arjan Bos en Martijn van Staveren zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/open_reactie_aan_arjan_bos_en_martijn_van_staveren1#rss Sep 17th 2017, 11:43
Na Martin Vrijland zijn uitleg, www.martinvrijland.nl/nieuws-analyses/arjan-bos-van-earth-matters-valt-volledig-door-de-mand-in-haastig-gemaakte-video/ waarin de werkwijze van Earth Matters uit de doeken werd gedaan nu een nieuwe reactie op de geestige video van Earth Matters. Een hele heldere toelichting van een van de andere felle Earth Matters critici :

Beste Arjan en Martijn,
Allereerst mijn complimenten voor de toonzetting van zowel het artikel als de video die daarin is te zien. Om te beginnen, begrijp mij alsjeblieft goed, want ik heb maar één belang, en dat is het boven tafel krijgen van de waarheid, ongeacht waarover. Kritiek op mij is dan ook prima, en wanneer mijn informatie toch onwaar blijkt te zijn, dan rectificeer ik dat altijd onmiddellijk. Daarom sta ik uiteraard open voor een gesprek hierover met jullie, maar in dat gesprek wil ik het dan ook zeker hebben over mijn kritiek op jullie.
Richting Arjan: Misschien weet je het niet meer, maar ik was vanaf 2009 een redacteur op Earth-Matters, en ergens in of rond 2011 heb je me zonder opgaaf van redenen als zodanig weer verwijderd. Daarna hoorde ik via via dat jij niets meer met mij van doen wilde hebben, maar waarom was onduidelijk. Verder heb ik na die tijd diverse mensen mogen ontmoeten met wie jij in die periode hebt samengewerkt en waarbij jouw obsessie voor geld uiteindelijk bij elk van hen voor een breuk heeft gezorgd. Weet jij eigenlijk wel hoeveel mensen dit zijn? Misschien heb je later het “licht” gezien, en staat geld verdienen bij jou nu minder op de voorgrond. Ik heb dat inderdaad niet gecheckt, en dus mag je mij dat verwijten. Wat ik echter wel zie is dat je veelvuldig populaire New Age-onzin publiceert, en ook graag dergelijke fabeltjes napraat. Ik herken dat zo goed omdat ik dit aanvankelijk zelf ook deed, in al mijn naïviteit, en dan heb ik het over mijn eigen ontwikkeling tot ergens in 2010. Tegenwoordig wil ik mijn lezers hier graag voor waarschuwen, en dat is de reden waarom jij als desinformant staat vermeld op PateoPedia. Maar met jou als mens heb ik geen enkel issue, al zou het misschien wel goed zijn om één en ander eens in een persoonlijk gesprek recht te zetten, want als jij eerlijk durft te zijn dan heb jij wel issues met mij, wat ik in Baarn (bij de lezing van Martijn en mij op 5 juni vorig jaar) ook heb gevoeld. Je bleef toen ook ver uit mijn buurt.
Richting Martijn: Als wetenschapper zet ik vraagtekens bij wat jij hebt meegemaakt en waar jij jouw informatie vandaan haalt. Ik vind je een prachtige kerel, en ik mag je graag, maar ik bouw mijn “huis” alleen op rots, en nadrukkelijk niet op (drijf-) zand. Als hypothese hanteer ik vooralsnog dat wat jij hebt meegemaakt een experiment was, en dat past ook nog eens in mijn overall-plaatje. Wellicht heb ik het toch fout, en heb jij echt contact met buitenaardse wezens. Als dat zo is, dan zou ik daar graag ook zelf eens kennis mee maken. En als dat niet mogelijk is, om wat voor reden dan ook, kom dan alsjeblieft met bewijzen, want daar heb ik als wetenschapper behoefte aan. We weten allemaal dat we op deze planeet op grote schaal voor de gek worden gehouden, en ik zie mijn rol als de doorprikker van al deze illusies. Zolang het tegendeel niet is bewezen is voor mij alles wat met buitenaardsen te maken heeft onderdeel van een mondiaal programma om de mensheid steeds verder af te laten glijden richting exopolitiek en transhumanisme. Ik weet dat jij dat laatste onderwerp juist ook wilt ontmaskeren, maar voor mij liggen die twee juist in elkaars verlengde. Bovendien heb ik nu al twee maal een ervaring met jou dat je iets toezegt, maar daarna nooit meer iets van je laat horen. Ik weet dat mind-control-slachtoffers last hebben van geheugenverlies, en dus strookt ook dat met mijn hypothese over jou. Veel mensen smullen van wat jij hen vertelt, omdat het bevestigt wat ze via New Age al menen te weten. Ik doe juist het omgekeerde. Uiteraard begrijp ik dat iemand die iets in mensen bevestigt populairder is dan iemand die juist het omgekeerde doet, maar populariteit in deze tijd is voor mij juist een indicator van de mate van onwaarheid die iemand verkondigt. Willen we echter tot de WAARHEID komen, dan zal daar eerst ruimte voor gemaakt dienen te worden, en wel door de vele onwaarheden te ontmaskeren. En dat laatste zie ik dus als mijn rol. Dat dit ten koste gaat van mijn populariteit is helaas niet anders. Ik kan en wil mijzelf en waar ik voor sta niet verloochenen. Indien mensen dit van mij niet kunnen accepteren, dan is dat van hen en niet van mij. Zo zie ik dat. Dat neemt niet weg dat ik in de manier waarop ik mijn onthullingen naar buiten breng nog wel wat kan verbeteren, want het kan hier en daar wel wat zachter en dus liefdevoller, zo heb ik afgelopen week mogen leren van de deelnemers aan de tiende Wholly Science Week (en dat is ook de reden dat ik nu pas reageer, want ik ben sinds gisteravond weer terug uit het Duitse Sauerland). Ik hoop dan ook dat ik deze verbetering hier laat zien met deze open reactie. Maar de waarheid dient te worden gezegd in mijn optiek, niet alleen de waarheid over de mainstream leugens, maar vooral ook over alle alternatieve leugens. Ik durf daarin zelfs zover te gaan door te beweren dat minimaal 90% van alles wat tegenwoordig te koop is op het gebied van “spiritualiteit” niets anders is dan misleiding, want al die zogenaamde spirituele boodschappen hebben helemaal niets van doen met de Geest (Spirit), aangezien het juist gaat over de Ziel (en dus weet ook vrijwel niemand wat het verschil tussen beide is!). En ook hier weer: ik zeg dit niet vanuit mijn onderbuik, maar als wetenschapper, want Wholly Science toont dit verschil en bewijst tevens wat Zuivere Spiritualiteit is, en daar is volstrekt niets zweverigs aan!
Kortom, Martijn en Arjen, ik constateer dat jullie in allerlei zaken geloven waarvan mijn onderzoek mij heeft laten zien dat het niet waar is. Met alle plezier wil ik mijn onderzoeksresultaten met jullie delen in een respectvol en open gesprek, waarvan het doel is om de zienswijze van de ander beter te leren begrijpen. Op voorhand kan ik jullie echter aangeven dat ik jullie geen van beide op jullie woord zal geloven, en ik neem maar even aan dat dit omgekeerd ook het geval zal zijn. Ik stel daarom voor dat we vooraf vragen voor elkaar formuleren, en dat we in ons gesprek onze antwoorden daarop met ondersteunende bewijzen ter tafel brengen. Aan een dergelijke constructieve bijeenkomst doe ik graag mee. Ik neem aan dat jullie er dan geen bezwaar tegen zullen hebben dat ik dan ook met een eigen cameraploeg kom, zodat ook ik achteraf kan tonen hoe ons gesprek is verlopen. We weten immers allemaal welke truckjes we uit kunnen halen met monteren, en ook hier gaat het mij uitsluitend om de waarheid. Denk nu niet dat ik kwade opzet of iets dergelijks vermoed, want dat is zeker niet het geval, maar voorkomen is nu eenmaal altijd beter dan genezen.
Met hartegroet, Johan Oldenkamp
Aanslag metro Londen perfecte PR show zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/aanslag_metro_london_perfecte_pr_show#rss Sep 17th 2017, 11:43
Wanneer de bevolking van een land voor het grootste deel bestaat uit wat men noemt sheeple, kun je ze van alles wijsmaken.

Zoals dat een rokende emmer in een Londense metro een terroristische aanslag is die honderd procent zeker is uitgevoerd door ISIS.
Het volgende was gisteren onder andere te lezen:
Bij een terroristische aanslag in de metro van Londen zijn 23 gewonden gevallen, zo bevestigt de politie. Getuigen spreken van een ’vuurbal’ die door het treinstel raasde. Na de aanslag doken berichten op van een gewapende man, maar volgens de politie is dat onzin. Ondanks een gigantische politiemacht, is er nog niemand opgepakt. Hier nog even een kleine samenvatting van de gebeurtenissen door een Australische t.v. zender.

En al vrij snel na de explosie werd zoals gewoonlijk bekendgemaakt wie de dader was:
De Britse generaal-majoor Chip Chapman, voormalig hoofd van de contra-terreur afdeling, heeft tegenover Sky News gezegd dat de aanslag op een metro in Londen vanochtend om 9.20 uur, waarbij minstens 20 mensen gewond raakten, ‘absoluut 100% islamistisch jihadistisch’ was. De vermoedelijk in een emmer verstopte bom lijkt niet goed te hebben gewerkt, zo stelde hij. Mogelijk was het een ‘snelkookpan’ bom zoals die werd gebruikt bij de aanslag op de marathon in Boston. Instructies voor het maken van zo’n bom staan open en bloot te lezen in het ISIS magazine ‘Inspire’. De media staan weer bol van de verhalen en waarschijnlijk heeft een rokende emmer nog nooit eerder zoveel aandacht gekregen. Maar, die rokende witte emmer in een plastic tas van Lidl zal er wel weer voor zorgen dat burgers nog meer vrijheden kwijtraken in de niet aflatende “strijd tegen terrorisme”. De manier waarop dit incident wordt opgeblazen alleen al toont aan dat hier sprake is van een andere agenda. Op zich is het een relatief klein incident waarbij geen doden zijn gevallen, maar wanneer je de mainstream berichten her en der leest, krijg je de indruk dat we hier te maken hebben met een soort nieuwe 9/11. Wij zijn niet de enige bij wie dit is opgevallen: Alweer een plofje, deze keer maar weer eens in de metro. In sleepy London Town. Een plastic tasje ontploft in een emmertje of andersom, dat weten we nog niet. Het tasje en het emmertje zijn nog heel gebleven ten behoeve van het onderzoek, maar er zijn desondanks veel mensen met brandwonden. En natuurlijk ook weer veel “betrokken” autoriteiten. De algemene trend: “Wij laten ons niet kisten!” Theresa May als premier voorop, nu ook gevolgd door de burgemeester van London, Sadiq Khan die verklaarde: Ik veroordeel deze afschuwelijke mensen die terreur gebruiken om ons kwaad te doen en onze manier van leven te vernietigen. Moet u eens opletten hoe dit verhaal van niets wordt opgeblazen tot magische proporties! Wij vestigen even de aandacht op het volgende, naar aanleiding van het burgemeesterlijk gewauwel, steekwoorden: “Afschuwelijke mensen – Terreur – Onze manier van leven”. Waar dit alles naartoe leidt wordt duidelijk als je de gedrukte Telegraaf van gisterenochtend leest: De wereld moet zich opmaken voor Islamitische Staat 3.0. Het kalifaat is ten einde, maar de extremisten werken hard aan een tweede reïncarnatie…. En die tweede reïncarnatie houdt in dat vooral West Europa het doelwit zal worden van zogenaamde ISIS aanslagen. Als reden wordt onder andere gegeven dat veel jihadisten afkomstig zijn uit West Europa en dat dit deel van de wereld zich kan gaan klaarmaken voor nog veel meer aanslagen. Dit alles heeft maar één doel en dat is het systematisch ontdoen van alle nog resterende vrijheden bij burgers, volgens het aloude principe.

1) Je creëert het probleem door een ISIS (Israeli Secret Intelligence Service) in het leven te roepen. 2) Nadat ISIS op een vreselijke manier heeft huisgehouden, smeekt het publiek om veiligheid. 3) De oplossingen waarmee de machthebbers vervolgens komen aandragen zijn allemaal, zonder enige uitzondering, maatregelen die de nog resterende vrijheden bij burgers zullen weghalen. Maatregelen die onder andere zullen inhouden: nog veel meer camera’s, nog veel meer bevoegdheden voor politie en veiligheidsdiensten, afschaffen van contant geld, afschaffen van dingen zoals prepaid telefoons, het aanscherpen van de definitie terrorist of extremist, waardoor straks iedereen die kritiek durft te uiten op de overheid zal worden aangeduid als zodanig. Zo kunnen we nog lang doorgaan en dit alles zal pas stoppen wanneer de bevolking rondloopt zonder portemonnee omdat er geen contant geld meer is en iedereen een onderhuidse schip heeft omdat dit de enige manier is om ervoor te zorgen dat die vreselijke ISIS koppensnellers geen materialen meer kunnen kopen om die gevaarlijke Lidl bommen in witte emmers te maken. Iedere aanslag heeft naast de algemene doelstellingen zoals hierboven beschreven, vaak ook nog specifieke. En voor deze nepaanslag is het dit: De bom in een metro op het Londense station Parsons Green was erg eenvoudig en goedkoop. De ’doe-het-zelfbom’ is waarschijnlijk gemaakt aan de hand van instructies op het internet en heeft de dader(s) hooguit 6 euro gekost. Dat berichtte de London Evening Standard vrijdag op basis van gegevens van de politie. Net voor de aanslag in Londen wordt door de Telegraaf aangedragen dat het nieuwe ISIS het op West Europa heeft gemunt.. Dankzij beschikbare handleidingen op internet kan iedereen voor een paar euro een bom maken, waarmee talloze (dodelijke) slachtoffers kunnen worden gemaakt. De oplossing zoals die door de werkelijke daders van die aanslag in Londen zal worden voorgesteld: We moeten dus heel snel internet aanpakken, zodat niet straks alle geradicaliseerde moslim jongeren voor een paar euro zo’n bom gaan maken.

Als je kijkt naar de puinhopen bij de Nationale Politie, moet je de vraag stellen: zijn dit de mensen die straks in al uw persoonlijke date mogen rommelen?

De politie blijkt zo lek als een mandje, vooral richting criminelen. De lekkende agenten zijn in veertig procent van de gevallen van allochtone afkomst, terwijl maar zeven procent van de politie allochtoon is. Agenten die de noodklok luiden, worden de ziektewet in gerommeld.
De screening van nieuwe en huidige agenten is een ondergeschoven kindje. Evenals de cursus schieten. Toen Theo van Gogh vermoord werd, was de politie Amsterdam Amstelland een jaar lang de helft van zijn recherchecapaciteit kwijt om uit te zoeken of Mohammed Bouyeri alleen handelde.
De capaciteitsproblemen bij politie uiten zich in minder zaken door het OM en rechters. Lege gevangenissen en een tekort aan cipiers. De strafrechtketen stort in. Terwijl de platte pet het steeds moeilijker krijgt, is de top bevangen door een zelf gecreëerd probleem: een reorganisatie. Agenten noemen deze operatie een fiasco.
De politietop is al jaren bezig om de 25 korpsen te fuseren tot een nationale politie en direct weer op te delen in 10 regionale eenheden, die weer onderverdeeld zijn in districten met onderaan dezelfde basisteams. Keuzes over de inzet van politie blijft bij burgemeesters en officieren van justitie.
Dit rondje om de kerk heeft bijna een miljard gekost, inclusief overschrijdingen van honderden miljoenen en jaren vertraging. Dit had allemaal sneller gekund door niet een totale reorganisatie af te roepen, maar een nationaal servicecentrum op te zetten voor ICT, salarisadministratie en andere te centraliseren diensten.
De minister wilde niet onderhandelen met alle ondernemingsraden van individuele korpsen en ondersteunende diensten, richtte daarom eerst een centrale ondernemingsraad in oprichting op (afgekort COR i.o.) en fêteerde deze en kreeg onvoorwaardelijke medewerking. De leden ontvingen ook twee jaar lang dubbele toelagen voor hun werk, bovenop hun vrijstelling van werkzaamheden.
Zijspoor Hoe de minister en aankomend korpschef de wet op ondernemingsraden wilde ontlopen was kort, maar krachtig. Eerst op een grote vage “houtskool schets” een formeel advies aanvragen bij de COR en daarna in de uitwerkingsfase de plannen deelrealisaties noemen die niet meer advies plichtig zijn.
Dit was het COR niet ontgaan, de meeste onderhandelingen gingen over lijfsbehoud van de raad, niet de inhoud van de plannen. De COR stemde met alles in, zonder haar leden te raadplegen. Kreeg regelmatig slechts vier weken om een advies uit te brengen binnen een gigantische reorganisatie.
Quid pro quo Toch vindt de onderzoekscommissie geen bewijs voor omkoping. Vooral omdat de COR i.o. direct besloot zich meewerkend op te stellen. Haar conceptreactie op nieuwe plannen was altijd “neen, tenzij…” en haar definitieve altijd “ja, mits…”. Stelde zich strijdbaar op, maar heeft informele lijntjes waarin nuanceringen en instemming vooraf beloofd werden. (PDF p37)
Omdat de wederdienst vooraf geleverd was, ziet de onderzoekscommissie geen causaal verband tussen de forse beloningen, gezellige commerciële vergaderlocaties, snoepreisjes, feestjes en hotelletjes. Alsof er bij omkoping of beïnvloeding altijd vooraf, tijdig en specifiek betaald wordt.
De hoofdmoot van de kostenoverschrijdingen door het COR bestonden echter uit de inhuur van externe adviseurs, die correct hebben voorspeld dat de reorganisatie twee keer zo duur uitviel dan door het ministerie en korpschef ingeschat. Waar de COR met tonnen uit de bocht schoot, deed de minister en korpschef dat met honderden miljoenen.
Gekozene De directeur HRM adviseerde toen het fout ging de COR i.o. ruimhartig te blijven faciliteiten, en zag geen andere kandidaat voorzitter binnen de COR i.o. Deze voorzitter moest behouden blijven. De COR bestond uit tientallen mensen, toch vond het nieuwe nationale korps dat er maar 1 iemand geschikt was. Geschikt voor wat precies?
Korpschef Bouman heeft zo summier mogelijk meegewerkt aan dit onderzoek. Hij gaf, tegen advies van de Afdeling Internationale Samenwerking in, toestemming voor een snoepreisje naar de Antillen door o.a. Giltay. Hoewel de COR i.o. meerdere jaren over budget ging, gaf hij alleen waarschuwingen. Waarom greep hij nooit in?
Scheepsrecht Bouman gaf Giltay een lening van vierduizend euro om loonbeslag af te wenden. Ten eerste geeft dat scheve verhoudingen, financiële onderlinge belangen. Daar kwam nog een forse salarisverhoging en voorwaardelijk sepot & formele waarschuwing voor een thuis gepleegd delict bovenop.
Ten tweede toont de inlener aan niet fatsoenlijk met geld om te gaan. Je moet dan ernstig gaan twijfelen aan zijn financiële competenties. Als iemand zijn huishoudboekje niet kloppend krijgt, kan hij dat wel op zijn werk met veel abstractere zaken? Hier ziet Bouman dat Giltay zakelijk en persoonlijk geen boekhouder is en faciliteert dat.
Katvanger Het onderzoek naar de financiële uitspattingen bij de COR kwam pas nadat de minister, staatssecretaris, korpschef én directeur korpsstaf waren vervangen. Giltay is eerst gebruikt om alles te smeren en laten passeren, en nu geofferd als zondebok. Aangewezen door de onderzoekscommissie COR politie, terwijl dat buiten hun onderzoeksopdracht viel.
In een rechtsstaat was dit na de aangifte van korpschef Akerboom (de opvolger van Bouman) voorbehouden aan de rechter. Bouman had geen vertrouwen in de onderzoekscommissie. Hij is inmiddels overleden, zijn laatste wens was een parlementair onderzoek naar de reorganisatie van de politie. Zoals het er nu voorstaat, wordt dit strafontslag een deksel op de doofpot.
Als topmensen en uitvoerend personeel bij de politie zo chantabel, incapabel, beïnvloedbaar of laks zijn, wie zegt ons dat het bij een sleepnet plotseling een utopie van integriteit zal zijn? En dat in de eeuwigheid zal blijven? Zijn dit de ambtenaren die uw mobieltje mogen hacken om onderzoek te doen naar iemand in uw omgeving?
Teken, voor een referendum over de sleepwet.

Honderden Amerikaanse tanks en houwitsers in Polen gearriveerd zaplog.nl/zaplog/article/honderden_amerikaanse_tanks_en_houwitsers_in_polen_gearriveerd#rss Sep 16th 2017, 19:55
Russische professor internationale veiligheidheid acht ‘beperkt militair conflict’ NAVO en Rusland steeds waarschijnlijker – Hulpdiensten bereiden zich voor op Noord Koreaanse kernaanval op Los Angeles
Zware Amerikaanse Abrams slagtanks komen in Polen aan.
Terwijl hoge militaire en politieke officials plichtmatig blijven verklaren niet uit te zijn op een conflict, gaat de NAVO ondertussen gewoon door met de voorbereidingen voor oorlog met Rusland. Drie dagen geleden kwamen er meer dan 1000 Amerikaanse tanks, houwitsers, pantservoertuigen en ander geschut in de Poolse havenstad Gdansk aan. Dit materiaal zal in het westen van het land worden gestationeerd, en vrijwel onmiddellijk deelnemen aan de grootschalige militaire oefening Dragon-17. Ondertussen vindt aan de andere kant van de grens de ‘grootste vertoning van Russische militaire macht sinds het einde van de Koude Oorlog’ plaats, getiteld Zapad-2017.

Aan de NAVO oefening Dragon-17, die tussen 25 en 29 september plaatsvindt, nemen in totaal 17.000 soldaten uit 11 landen deel. De enorme hoeveelheid Amerikaans militair materieel die afgelopen week in Polen aankwam is nog maar de eerste lading die valt onder het Operation Atlantic Resolve initiatief, dat bedoeld is als tegenwicht voor de toegenomen Russische militaire activiteiten bij Oost Europa – activiteiten zoals de enorme militaire oefening Zapad-17 deze maand, die volgens het Kremlin juist een reactie is op de al geruime tijd aan de gang zijnde agressieve militaire opbouw van de NAVO langs de grenzen met Rusland.
Officials van de NAVO –waaronder secretaris-generaal Jens Stoltenberg-, Rusland en Wit-Rusland verklaarden dat ze geen directe bedreiging zien in elkaars grootschalige militaire oefeningen. Desondanks blijven beide partijen elkaar beschuldigen van het verhogen van de spanningen, en gaat de militaire opbouw van de NAVO, en Rusl

thumbnail Tree Hugging Improves Your Health

Sep 19th 2017, 02:21, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Matthew Silverstone; Natural News

Tree hugging, that much maligned hippy generation idea, has now been shown to have scientific validity after all. Contrary to popular belief, touching a tree does make you healthier. In fact you don't even have to touch the tree to get better, just being within its vicinity has the same effect.

In a recently published book, Blinded by Science, (www.blindedbyscience.co.uk) the author Matthew Silverstone, proves scientifically that trees improve many health issues such as; mental illnesses, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), concentration levels, reaction times, depression and the ability to alleviate headaches.

Countless studies have shown that children show significant psychological and physiological effects in terms of their health and well being when they interact with plants. They demonstrate that children function better cognitively and emotionally in green environments and have more creative play in green areas.

A large public health report that investigated the association between green spaces and mental health concluded that "access to nature can significantly contribute to our mental capital and wellbeing".

thumbnail 10 Traits Empathic People Share

Sep 19th 2017, 02:13, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Judith Orloff M.D.; Psychology Today

The trademark of an empath is feeling and absorbing other people’s emotions and/or physical symptoms because of their high sensitivities. These people filter the world through their intuition and have a difficult time intellectualizing their feelings. As a psychiatrist and empath myself, I know the challenges of being a highly sensitive person. When overwhelmed with the impact of stressful emotions, empaths may experience panic attacks, depression, chronic fatigue, food, sex, and drug binges, or exhibit many other physical symptoms that defy traditional diagnosis.

But empaths can also learn how to center themselves so that they don't feel too much or become overloaded. The first step is to acknowledge that you are an empath. Here are the top 10 traits of an empath, from my book on how to achieve emotional freedom. See if you can relate:

1. Empaths are highly sensitive.

Empaths are naturally giving, spiritually open, and good listeners. If you want heart, empaths have got it. Through thick and thin, these world-class nurturers will be there for you. But they can easily have their feelings hurt, too: Empaths are often told that they are “too sensitive” and need to "toughen up."

thumbnail Why The Women Society Calls “Damaged” Are The Most Powerful

Sep 19th 2017, 02:06, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Shahida Arabi; badwitch.es

Here is a truth you often don’t hear: traumatized women have the potential to become the most powerful people in this world.

The most ignorant members of society call this type of woman “damaged.” But she is the most powerful type of woman there is.

What they forget is that survivors have the most dangerous advantage of all: resilience.

When you try and you try but you can never bring a woman down, you’ll know there is no going back. Don’t fool yourself. You could never defeat her. You never will.

This is the woman who will always rise from the dead; Lady Lazarus, after going through hell and back.

This is the woman who has burned her feet in the flames time and time again and always lives to tell another tale – even if she has to crawl back to life.

She was never given love or approval on a silver platter, so in order to survive, she had to love herself in a way others could only dream of. She fought tooth and nail for her own self-acceptance.

by Ivan; Ancient Code

Archaeologists have begun exploring the ancient Mayan temple of Kukulcan and other ruins of Chichen Itza as never before, using a specially modified radar to search for passages and hidden chambers.

Just as experts in Egypt are exploring the inside of different Pyramids using special equipment like ground penetrating radar and muon detectors, archaeologists in Mexico have begun exploring the ancient site of Chichen Itza using advanced tools.

The stepped pyramid, also known as El Castillo, or the Pyramid of Chichen Itza was built thousands of years ago by the itzáes Maya.

Researchers are currently setting up what is considered as the monument’s most comprehensive study in the last 50 years.

Experts will use, among other avant-garde technologies, a ground-penetrating radar GPR) to locate passages and cameras in a non-invasive way.

thumbnail Consuming Folate Around Conception Reduces Risk of Autism From Pesticides

Sep 18th 2017, 02:17, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Mae Chan; Prevent Disease

Mothers exposed to pesticides who took high-doses of folic acid around conception reduced their risk of having children with autistic spectrum disorder (ASD), according to a study in Environmental Health Perspectives.

An editorial published previous in the prestigious journal Environmental Health Perspectives called for increased research to identify possible environmental causes of autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders in America’s children and presents a list of ten target chemicals including which are considered highly likely to contribute to these conditions.

Glyphosate is an herbicide produced and marketed by Monsanto Corporation, the agrochemical and biotechnology giant. Monsanto claims that glyphosate is safe and has successfully lobbied the Environmental Protection Agency to raise the residue limits of this toxic chemical.

Independent scientists disagree with Monsanto: several recently published peer-reviewed studies point to serious health impacts from exposure to this toxic herbicide.

Roundup herbicide may also be the most important factor in development of autism and other chronic disease. Glyphosate does induce disease and is a "textbook example of exogenous semiotic entropy." Glyphosate inhibits detoxification of xenobiotics and interferes with cytochrome P450 enzymes, which enhances the damaging effects of other chemical residues and toxins, and very slowly damages cellular systems in the body through inflammation. Residues of glyphosate are found in sugar, corn, soy, and wheat, some of the main components of the Western diet.

thumbnail The Soul Of An Octopus: How One Of Earth’s Most Alien Creatures Illuminates The Wonders Of Consciousness

Sep 18th 2017, 02:09, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Maria Popova; Awaken

“While stroking an octopus, it is easy to fall into reverie…

To share such a moment of deep tranquility with another being, especially one as different from us as the octopus, is a humbling privilege… an uplink to universal consciousness.”

“Despite centuries of investigation by everyone from natural historians, psychologists, and psychiatrists, to ethicists, neuroscientists, and philosophers, there is still no universal definition of emotion or consciousness,” Laurel Braitman wrote in her terrific exploration of the mental lives of animals. Virginia Woolf defined consciousness as “a wave in the mind,” but even if we’re able to ride the wave, we hardly know the ocean out of which it arises.

During my annual visit to NPR’s Science Friday to discuss my choices for the year’s best science books, my co-guest — science writer extraordinaire Deborah Blum — mentioned a fascinating book that had slipped my readerly tentacles, one that addresses this abiding question of consciousness with unparalleled rigor and grace: The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness (public library) by naturalist, writer, and documentary filmmaker Sy Montgomery.

thumbnail How Expectations Can Drive People Away and How to Let Go of Control

by Marigny Goodyear; tiny buddha

“I’m not in this world to live up to your expectations and you’re not in this world to live up to mine.” ~Bruce Lee

About five years ago, I had a falling out with a close friend. I was irritated because she didn’t do the things I thought she should and she didn’t give as much as I did. I felt I had been very generous with her, and I expected her to do the same. I felt she owed me.

My anger became unmanageable and started seeping into pretty much every interaction we had. She began cancelling dinner plans and camping trips. She wouldn’t call me back after days of me leaving a message. It happened out of nowhere, and of course everything was her fault.

Except that it didn’t. And it wasn’t.

Not too long ago, I was a bit of a control freak. I didn’t know it, of course, and I would have described myself as open-minded and easy going. In reality, I was tormented by my own expectations.

Since I was a child, I had an image in my head about who I was supposed to be. What my family was supposed to look like. What house I was supposed to live in. What career success was supposed to mean. That’s a lot of supposing! I had always assumed these expectations were my future.

thumbnail I Stopped Drinking THIS 10 Years Ago, And It Transformed My Health. Here’s Why

Sep 18th 2017, 02:04, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Liivi Hess; The Alternative Daily

As a nation, we drink a heck of a lot of soda. According to the CDC, 63 percent of youngsters and 49 percent of adults drink a soda (a.k.a. sugar-sweetened beverage) every single day. That’s more than half of the entire U.S. population getting 150 empty calories 365 days a year. Close to 55,000 annual calories that are doing us damage.

See, I used to be one of those “soda statistics.” I’d come home from school on a hot day, sit down and immediately crack open a deliciously cold can of Coke, glistening beads of water on the outside just like in the ads. If it’d been like in the commercials, with me wearing a skimpy bikini and splashing in the waves with other Coke-wielding partygoers, it would have been an inspiring sight, I’m sure.

But when I think about myself sitting there on the couch and glugging back a can of liquid poison, I just feel sad. Sad that I exposed my body to such a travesty each day, and sad that it was slowly but surely building into a sugar addiction.

And then one day I broke free. I’d always known that Coke and other sodas weren’t good for one’s health, but that fact had never really bothered me. Then, with my 20s looming just around the corner, I knew it was time to kick a bad habit, and I stopped. It wasn’t easy, but reminding myself just how harmful soda really is helped me to stay on track.

Ten years on, and I’m still soda-free. Here’s while I’ll never go back.

thumbnail How You Were Tricked to Live in the Land of the Legally Dead

Sep 18th 2017, 02:02, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Pao L. Chang; Waking Times

The current reality of man is heavily controlled by words. As a result of that, words play a big role in shaping the reality and culture of man. Besides shaping the reality and culture of man, words also play an important role in trade. Some of the most important words used in the business of trading goods and services are related to the name.

Your name plays a very important role in your life because it allows others to identify you and communicate with you. Furthermore, it allows you to operate in the realm of commerce and fiction, making it easier for you to trade goods and services with people not living close to you.

Having a name can be a wonderful thing but if you do not know how to use it wisely, it can be a curse and prevent you from living a happy life. One of the ways that your name can curse you is when you allow it to bond to your mind too deeply, causing you to think that your name is who you really are. Your name has the power to trick your mind because it is made up of sigils (letters). Because of this, it is important to use your name wisely, so you do not become a victim of your name.

When you do not know how to use your name wisely, the Dark Magicians or the Elite can use it to imprison your body, mind and soul in the “land” of the legally DEAD. The best time to trick you to “live” in the land of the legally dead or the “sea” of the legally dead is on the day your mother gave “birth” to you.

thumbnail Reversing Diabetes with Food

Sep 17th 2017, 11:44, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Dr. Michael Greger; Care2

We’ve known that type 2 diabetes could be reversed by an extreme reduction in food intake for nearly a century and a half, since the 1870 siege of Paris during the Franco-Prussian War. This has been demonstrated experimentally. Indeed, by starving people enough, you can reverse diabetes. Diabetes specialists “have long known that the tiny proportion of iron-willed people [with diabetes] who can substantially decrease their weight and maintain this, can exhibit a return to normal metabolism.”

“A label is required to allow doctors to recognize and appropriately manage this subgroup who were willing to do anything to get rid of their diabetes. These are the Health Motivated. At the time of diagnosis, the Health-Motivated individuals will benefit from being advised that they are likely to be able to reverse their diabetes completely” by losing up to one-fifth of their body weight. And then—and only then—if they “show that they are not sufficiently strongly motivated should the routine guidelines for managing Type 2 diabetes be rolled out,” which include lots of drugs.

Unfortunately, the control of blood sugar with medication has proven to be unsustainable and may actually exacerbate obesity, making us put on more weight and, thus, creating a vicious cycle.

There has got to be a better way.

thumbnail Bad News: Almost All Sea Salts Found To Be Contaminated By Plastic

Sep 17th 2017, 09:55, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Brianna Acuesta; True Activist

Humans consume nearly 700 particles of plastic per year.

Maybe you’re surprised at this news or maybe it just confirms what you knew all along: that anything coming from the ocean is bound to be contaminated by what scientists call microplastics. Researchers as of late have warned consumers of the likelihood that their seafood likely consumed plastic before its death, but not everyone eats seafood and certainly most people did not heed that warning.

Contamination of salt is something else altogether. The majority of people around the world consume salt on a daily basis, whether it’s by directly pouring table salt onto food or through the consumption of other foods that have already been salted.

This year alone, several different groups of researchers confirmed that plastics were mixed in with dozens of different salts found in stores around the world. Among the latest reports are one from August, in which researchers found plastics in all 21 types of salt tested, and a still-unreleased report from the State University of New York at Fredonia, where 12 salts from U.S. grocery stores were tested.

Based on the amount of salt recommended for consumption per day, which is less than an ounce, humans could be consuming up to 660 particles of plastic each year, according to Sherri Mason, the leader of the State University of New York study. Since an estimated 90% of Americans eat more than the recommended amount every day, this number could be even higher.

thumbnail Re-Enchanting the World

Sep 17th 2017, 09:45, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by kingsleydennis.com

When we look up into the night sky and see the sparkle of stars, we are awed and enchanted. There is grace, there is wonder, and there is the excitement of the unknown. Everything comes alive with possibility. There is an enchanted world out there, and it beckons to us through a communal mystery. And we wish to respond to that call, for underlying all life is the urge for meaning. As human beings we desire, long for, need a sense of meaning and purpose in our lives. An enchanted universe serves to entice us with a feeling of belonging. Yet somewhere along the way we lost the sense of communion.

Once, humanity felt a common destiny with its environment, both terrestrial and cosmic, and this encouraged a mode of direct participation. Long ago, the environment experienced by humankind was an immersive space, an inclusive matrix that involved the individual in each moment of their lives. Our ancestors did not stand away from life—they participated directly in its enchantment. This merger between being and environment established a psychic wholeness in humans. Our ancestors were not estranged from the world in the way that modern humanity is. In the last few centuries especially, humankind has increasingly expunged itself out of its own mystery and thrown itself out of the realm of enchantment.

Modern scientific, rational consciousness is an alienated consciousness, afraid of its participation. It views the world as an outside observer; a world of objects that move in mechanical motion. This alienated consciousness has substituted the enchantment and mystery with a smear of artificiality. The cosmos of human “being and belonging” thus became tainted with the contagion of the human mind. Yet this is not how things are, it is only the latest picture of how things seem to us. We have been forced to construct our own meanings about a world we have let slip from ourselves. In other words, we have disenchanted ourselves from a living cosmos.

thumbnail Your Brain Is Not Your Mind: An Exploration of the True Nature of Consciousness

Sep 16th 2017, 12:24, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Marcus T Anthony, PhD; Conscious Life News

Our knowledge of the nature of the objects treated in physics consists solely of readings of pointers (on instrument dials) and other indicators. (Therefore) what knowledge have we of the nature of atoms that renders it at all incongruous that they should constitute a thinking object?(Thus) science has nothing to say as to the intrinsic nature of the atom. – Sir Arthur Eddington.

What do we really know about the intrinsic nature of consciousness and its essential role (if any) in the nature of cosmos? Probably a lot less than many would assume. There is no question that our knowledge of brains has expanded massively in the past century. But what does all this data about brains really tell us about consciousness? Not a great deal, I suspect. Yet mainstream psychology and neuroscience continues to ignore the obvious implications of the question: “Are brains and minds the same thing?”

Instead, these discourses tend to ignore the question, replacing it with an unquestioned presupposition: mind equals brain. Worse still, much of science still tends not even to bother with consciousness, intention, and the importance of the role of the perceiver. Ironically, the scientific detachment that was born of the awareness of the fallibility of first-person perception has typically led to the dismissal of the role of mind in nature, evolution and cosmos.

Galen Strawson in a well-known paper entitled “Realistic monism: why physicalism entails panpsychism” points out some of the logical inconsistencies in materialist science. Strawson is incredulous at the denial of personal experience which lies at the heart of the materialist worldview that still dominates much of science, especially biology, psychology and neuroscience. This, he states, is akin to the denial of “the existence of experience.”

thumbnail Thich Nhat Hanh: The Four Layers of Consciousness

Sep 16th 2017, 12:18, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Thich Nhat Hanh; UPLIFT

The Inner Workings of Our Minds

Abhidharma, Buddhism’s map of the mind, is sometimes treated as a topic of merely intellectual interest. In fact, says Thich Nhat Hanh, identifying the different elements of consciousness, and understanding how they interact, is essential to our practice of meditation.

The Vietnamese Zen Master, Thuong Chieu, said:

When we understand how our mind works, our practice becomes easy.

To understand our minds, we need to understand our consciousness.

The Buddha taught that consciousness is always continuing, like a stream of water. Consciousness has four layers. The four layers of consciousness are mind consciousness, sense consciousness, store consciousness, and manas.

Layer One–Mind Consciousness

Mind consciousness is the first kind of consciousness. It uses up most of our energy. Mind consciousness is our ‘working’ consciousness that makes judgments and plans; it is the part of our consciousness that worries and analyses. When we speak of mind consciousness, we’re also speaking of body consciousness, because mind consciousness isn’t possible without the brain. Body and mind are simply two aspects of the same thing. Body without consciousness is not a real, live body. And consciousness can’t manifest itself without a body.

thumbnail 10 Natural Remedies for Swollen Feet and Ankles

Sep 16th 2017, 12:08, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Becky Striepe; Care2

Are you coping with swelling? Check out some of these natural solutions to help relieve swollen feet and ankles!

Swelling in your feet and ankles is called edema, and there are a lot of things that can cause the problem, from high blood pressure to pregnancy. What’s happening is your body is having trouble fighting gravity to move blood and fluids back up your legs, so your ankles, feet, and even your legs can begin to swell.

Edema on its own is not harmful, but it is uncomfortable. If you are seeing one foot or leg swelling a lot more than the other, or your face is swelling, you do want to call your doctor, because the cause could be a blood clot, and you don’t want to wait to address that problem.

That uncomfortable swelling is not actually a disorder, just a symptom, and the best way to treat it is to treat the root cause. If you’re swelling because of pregnancy, it should go down not long after you deliver. Talk to your doctor to see what could be causing your swelling.

Whatever the reason, these remedies can help give you some relief while you sort out the cause of your edema.

thumbnail NASA Satellite Images Provoke ‘Weather Warfare’ Discussion as More Hurricanes Come

Sep 16th 2017, 11:02, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Markab Algedi; The Mind Unleashed

Lately, people aware that geoengineering (weather manipulation) is already a fully developed science have had a lot of questions. So many anomalous weather events are occurring, it has become necessary to investigate them, and determine if any geoengineering activity contributed to the magnitude of these disasters.

Geoengineering activist Patrick Roddie has used an open source tool, NASA Worldview, to take satellite images of Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma, and other weather events. In this interview, he explains how the images indicate the hurricanes were altered.

In this video, one can see distinctive spray patterns, feathery spots, haze, and wave lines indicative of weather modification.

thumbnail Have You Been Experiencing Any Of These Symptoms Since The Eclipse & Full Moon?

Sep 15th 2017, 12:52, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Joe Martino; Collective Evolution

On September 6 we had a Full Moon in Pisces, which seemed to many like a gasp of relief after what was an intense prior few months. These energies will continue to affect us for quite some time as well, so while I don’t normally write about astrological topics, I felt compelled to in this instance for a couple of reasons:

1. I want to touch on the importance of how to use things like astrology in a healthy way that doesn’t negate personal responsibility or agency.

2. I wanted to create greater awareness around how to turn within to reflect on what these various energetic times actually mean for us and how we can make the most of them.

Right after the eclipse I began seeing a lot of posts on social media about people feeling a number of different physical, mental, and spiritual symptoms. People were talking about feeling tired, dizzy, sick, and extremely emotional. Some people mentioned they were crying several times a day or feeling highly motivated to act on passions they suddenly felt immensely clear on.

thumbnail 10 Signs That You Might Be an Old Soul

Sep 15th 2017, 12:27, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Ashlee McCabe; Wake Up World

“My Soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.” — Rumi

I will never forget being 7 years old and overhearing my friends mother politely tell my parents that I was “too big for my boots”, and that I “knew too much for my age”. Though I had little comprehension of what she meant at the time, it was the first instance I can recall where I began to realize that I was somehow different to most other children my own age.

At 9 years old, while all my friends were spellbound by Nickelodeon cartoons and Disney movies, I was at home watching The Silence of the Lambs, or some other psychological thriller. Similarly, while 90’s pop bands were all the rage in the school yard, I longed for someone that knew who Led Zeppelin or The Doors were.

For much of my life, I have always felt older on the inside than my physical age projected on the outside. And being told that I was ‘wise beyond my years’ was something that I became well accustomed to hearing from strangers and friends alike. However, it wasn’t until I began to understand the concept of an ‘old soul’ that I finally had an explanation for my uniqueness.

thumbnail “Butterfly Effect” or How Travis Scott Got Recruited by the Industry

Sep 15th 2017, 11:45, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by The Vigilant Citizen

Behind the psychedelic visuals of Travis Scott’s video Butterfly Effect is a hidden message, told through symbolism: Travis Scott’s introduction to the elite’s entertainment industry and the Monarch mind control system.

Travis Scott is a rapper and producer who began his career behind the scenes, collaborating with the likes of Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Madonna. He then launched his solo career and, with the hit song Antidote, Scott found commercial success. Soon, he was propelled to the forefront of the rap game. After the release of his second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, Scott cemented his trademark sound and got a taste of superstardom. Shortly after, things started to become … symbolic.

While Scott is sometimes criticized for “rapping about nothing”, a clear theme has emerged from his latest works: Monarch programming. (If you don’t know what that is, please read this article first).

Indeed, it appears that Scott has been recruited to promote the elite’s MK symbolism to his hordes of young fans. When a new artist shows talent, charisma and star potential, it doesn’t take long before they get recruited by the elite. Afterwards, their work becomes “tainted” with their agenda. Hence, Butterfly Effect.

If you need immediate proof, this screenshot taken from the video sums everything up in a single, powerful image:

thumbnail Did the Egyptians Know How to Transfer Consciousness From One Entity to Another?

Sep 15th 2017, 10:42, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Christina Sarich; Waking Times

In the movie 21 Grams, the idea is presented that upon the moment of death, the human body instantaneously loses exactly 21 grams – supposedly the weight of the soul. Though this is not scientifically proven, there seems to be evidence that our consciousness is indeed a transferable entity – and the ancient Egyptians likely knew exactly how to transfer consciousness, or the soul, from one person to another.

There is a similar aim within DARPA and the Shadow Government’s pricey experiments. The merging of humans and machines is already happening whereupon human consciousness is “uploaded” into AI computers. Mind uploading is expected to be in full force by 2045, but has it been done already, long ago?

Before we examine the ancient history of uploading consciousness, let’s look at a few examples in recent Hollywood history which suggest this is already being done.

In the movie, What Dreams May Come staring the late Robin Williams, his character dies and then traverses gleefully through a place that looks just like the paintings his wife used to create when he was still alive. The film pictorially demonstrates that William’s is in his own eternity developed by his “KA” state – a term I’ll explain momentarily. His wife has a similar, negative experience of a seeming hell, based on her experience of suicide. She enters a dreamlike “hallucination” that she cannot escape based on her own “KA” state.

Sep 14th 2017, 02:19, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Kirsten Corley; The Minds Journal

Stay single until you meet the person who makes you laugh until it hurts

The one who heals any pain they didn’t cause from the past.

But more than that makes you forget about it.

The one who shows you love isn’t confusion or pain.

Stay single until you meet the person and you just know with confidence something is there.

And it’s not just confident in yourself but confident in the relationship.

The one who teaches you to trust someone other than yourself.

thumbnail A Step Away From Peace

Sep 14th 2017, 02:10, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by John Ptacek

We are accustomed to thinking of progress as a step forward. But taking a conscious step back can lead to an abiding sense of peace.

Imagine that you are standing under a waterfall. The water pounds down on your head and shoulders and pins your feet to the ground. The steady rush of water feels good. At times, it feels ecstatic.

But often the force of the water is too much. It hurts. You want it to stop. You tilt your body slightly, hoping to find a gap in the sheets of water cascading down on you. You do, and for a moment the pain lessens. But then the full force of the water finds you again. The pain is intense. You feel trapped.

Now imagine that one day, for no reason you can think of, you step back from the waterfall. You had no idea there was a space behind you the whole time, a cavern cut into the rock that easily accommodates your frame. The relief you feel is immense. Your body feels light. You witness the water pouring down inches from your nose. The inches seem like miles. Now the water begins to flow from you. Tears of joy are streaming down your cheeks. You have stepped away from the steady rush of water, from the endless cycle of pleasure and pain you’d been experiencing for as long as you can remember.

thumbnail Burn a Bay Leaf in Your House and See What Happens After 10 Minutes!

Sep 14th 2017, 02:06, by noreply@blogger.com (RiseEarth)

by Healthy & Tasty Recipes

If you’ve ever stepped inside a yoga studio or new age book shop, you may have noticed that these places sometimes have a very particular smell.

This is because many of these locations regularly practice smudging, a Native American tradition that uses the smoke of sacred herbs to purify a room. This ritual is similar to the act of burning incense.

While the practice of smudging is commonly associated with sage, there are other herbs you can use and more concrete benefits you can enjoy.

Why Burn Bay Leaves

Bay leaves have been a things of legends for millennia: whether its incontestable role in Greek and Roman folklore or its steady presence in Indian and Caribbean culture and cuisine, this herb has withstood the test of time.

But bay leaves aren’t just used in food and fairytales, the herb is commonly used as a fragrance ingredient in creams, lotions, perfumes, soaps, and detergents.
