Driverless Brexit tech deal struck by Government "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

In a bid to encourage tech companies to invest in the UK after Brexit, the Government has announced a series of tie ups with major tech companies.

The flagship project sees it team up with the experts behind the Google driverless car to produce a driverless Brexit.

Obviously the technology is still in its infancy and we expect there to be a number of accidents along the way, a Government spokesperson said. But this is much a more efficient and modern way of careering along with nobody at the helm than we have been doing for the past few months.

Google said the biggest problem it faced on the project was integrating Sat Nav as nobody in Government has a clue where they want to end up. However, it added that the Prime Minister had been clear on the colour scheme, so it was busy painting it red, white and blue in the meantime.

The initiative also involves working with IBM on Watson, its artificial intelligence programme. It was abundantly clear that what we need is some form of intelligence in the Cabinet, the Government spokesperson explained. Any intelligence real or artificial it doesnt matter. We just need something for gods sake.

The holographic technology used to bring dead pop stars, such as Tupac, back to the stage, will be used by Theresa May for all future public appearances. She really isnt very good at them so this is much safer and part of a wider on-going project to automate election campaigns after the series of unforced human errors that occurred last time.

Finally, the Government has commissioned a series of new ultra-realistic talking sex dolls. Well, that should keep Boris quiet and out of the way for a bit, it explained.

Study Shows What Happens To The Brains of Kids Who Use Tablets "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


(Kalee BrownHow often do you see kids using iPads, iPhones, and any other touch screens? Technology has slowly but surely become deeply engrained within society, and some schools are even distributing touch screen tablets to students to use while in class. Theyre convenient, paperless, and extremely relevant given that you practically need to know how to use technology in todays society. However, are there any downsides to children using touch screens, especially for prolonged periods of time?

Before & After: A San Diego Home Balances Restoration & Modernity "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Ashley And Ross' Master Bedroom Details On Design*Sponge

Ross and Ashley Goldman and their cat, Mabel, have lived in their 1915 San Diego, CA craftsman for two years. Much of that time has been spent making their house into a home, highlighting the beautiful original details of the century-old structure, and creating a modern respite fit for sitting back and reflecting on all of their hard work. All of which led Ashley to create a blog to document their renovations, The Gold Hive  a name created from a combination of their last name and the literal hive that was found in their home when they bought it. When shes not working on the house, Ashley can be found at a local art museum where she works on programs with school kids, anthropomorphizing her plants and vintage portraits, or making pies.

Ashley and Ross both grew up in the suburbs, in 70s tract housing, only a few blocks away from each other. When they were looking to purchase their first home, they knew they wanted one with a little more history than those in which they spent their childhoods. Unfortunately, San Diego isnt replete with historic districts. The couple looked for two years before they found their craftsman gem in a neighborhood only 15 minutes from downtown that somehow retains a small-town charm despite its proximity to the city center. With all of the charm, the mom-and-pop shops and restaurants, its not hard to imagine how difficult finding an available house in that neighborhood would be Ross didnt even see their house before Ashley had to put an offer in because he was working out of town (hes an audio engineer for live events) and there were only two days the home was being shown!

One thing the before photos cant accurately depict is the stench that awaited the industrious couple. Ashley remarked that it was so bad at first that they could barely stand inside a delightful combination of old cigar smoke and pet urine. It took us three months of floor refinishing, wall retexturing, cleaning, electrical updates, and a restored bathroom before we could move in. We did a lot upfront to get the house to a place where we could put our things inside, but for the past two years since then, weve taken a slow approach to renov...

New Study Reveals How the Neanderthals Made Super Glue 200,000 Years Ago: The Worlds Oldest Known Synthetic Material "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

It's become increasingly clear how much we've underestimated the Neanderthals, the archaic humans who evolved in Europe and went extinct about 40,000 years ago. Though we've long used them as a byword for a lumbering, beast-like lack of development and intelligence compared, of course, to we glorious examples of Homo sapiens evidence has come to reveal a greater similarity between us and Homo neanderthalensis than we'd imagined. Not only did they develop stone tools, they even invented a kind of "super glue," one that, as you can see in the NOVA segment above, we have difficulty replicating even today.

"Archaeologists first found tar-covered stones and black lumps at Neanderthal sites across Europe about two decades ago," writes the New York Times' Nicholas St. Fleur. "The tar was distilled from the bark of birch trees some 200,000 years ago, and seemed to have been used for hafting, or attaching handles to stone tools and weapons. But scientists did not know how Neanderthals produced the dark, sticky substance, more than 100,000 years before Homo sapiens in Africa used tree resin and ocher adhesives." But in a new study in Scientific Reports, "a team of archaeologists has used materials available during prehistoric times to demonstrate three possible ways Neanderthals could have deliberately made tar."




The process might have looked something like that in the video above, an attempt by archaeologists Wil Roebroeks and Friedrich Palmer to make this of oldest known synthetic material just as the Neanderthals might have executed it. Their only materials: "an upturned animal skull to catch the pitch; a small stone on which the pitch would condense; some rolls of birch bark, the source of the pitch; and a layer of ash, to exclude oxygen and prevent the bark from burning."

Higher levels of fluoride in urine associated with lower intelligence in children "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Fluoride in the urine of pregnant women shows a correlation with lower measures of intelligence in their children, according to University of Toronto researchers who conducted the first study of its kind and size to examine fluoride exposure and multiple states of neurodevelopment.

Our study shows that the growing fetal nervous system may be adversely affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure, said Dr. Howard Hu, the studys principal investigator and Professor of Environmental Health, Epidemiology and Global Health at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health. It also suggests that the pre-natal nervous system may be more sensitive to fluoride compared to that of school-aged children.

Tap water and dental products have been fluoridated in communities in Canada and the United States (as well as milk and table salt in some other countries) by varying amounts for more than 60 years to prevent cavities and improve bone health. In recent years, fierce debate over the safety of water fluoridation particularly for childrens developing brains has fueled researchers to explore the issue and provide evidence to inform national drinking water standards.

There are some known side effects of fluoride, for example dental defects like mild staining are common among those ingesting recommended levels of fluoride in the United States and Canada. Skeletal fluorosis excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones is much less common and only observed at levels of fluoride in the water that are more than 5 to 10 times higher than those recommended.

Relatively little is known, with confidence, about fluorides impact on neurodevelopment, said Hu, whose research team included experts from the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico, University of Toronto, University of Michigan, McGill University, Indiana University, Mount Sinai School of Medicine and Harvard School of Public Health.

The study, Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6-12 Years of Age in Mexico, published today in Environmental Health Perspectives, analyzed data from 287 mother-child pairs in Mexico City that were part of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project, which recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005 and has continued to follow the women and their children ever since.

The research team analyzed urine samples that had been taken from mothers during pregnancy and from their children between six and 12 years of age to reconstruct personal measures of fluoride exposure for both mother and...

Revisiting Cold War Ruins in Our New Era of Nuclear Dread "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

For 25 years, Phil Buehler has photographed ruins of the Cold War, from geometric lines of stored military planes in Arizona, to the weathered fallout shelter sign on the Bronx grammar school where he once practiced duck and cover drills in the midst of the Cuban Missile Crisis. 

Those signs are still on thousands and thousands of public schools and buildings, and once you start thinking about them, you start noticing them everywhere, Buehler told Hyperallergic. In fact, theres one on the school right across the street from the gallery. That gallery is Front Room Gallery on the Lower East Side, where his photographs of abandoned silos, bunkers, and other Cold War relics are on view in (UN)THINKABLE.

US Jets Dropped Live Bombs On North Korea In Massive Show Of Force "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

jetbomb

Its becoming apparent that the United States is getting frustrated with the continued nuclear tests done by North Korea.  And to prove it, they dropped live bombs on the Korean Peninsula.

The Pentagon deployed a formation of 14 bombers and fighters over the Korean Peninsula on Sunday.  This blatant show of force also included South Korean and Japanese aircraft.  This most recent deployment of jets was in response to a missile launched over Japan on Thursday.  The missile was the cause for much concern in Japan, and warnings were sent out to those who live on the island.

The warplanes were dispatched after North Korea launched a ballistic missile over northern Japan on Thursdaytriggering a widespread emergency alert for those who call the region home. Two Air Force B-1B bombers from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and four Marine Corps F-35B fighters from Iwakuni, Japan, combined with four South Korean F-15K fighters and four F-2 Japanese fighters, U.S. defense officials said. Washington Post

The U.S. and Japanese jets flew in formation over waters near Kyushu, Japan, a southern portion of the country that is the closest major island to the Korean Peninsula.  The aircraft used live bombs to carry out a simulated attack on the Pilsung training range in South Korea, a few dozen miles from the demilitarized zone separating the North and South.

If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday. And we all know that, and none of us want that. Haley also commented that should the U.S. thoroughly exhaust diplomatic options, then all military options are on the table.

FBI May Have Spied on POTUS Trump, 1794 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: FBI May Have Spied on POTUS Trump, 1794 Synopsis: CNN and Fox News are both reporting that the FBI was surveilling Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort under secret orders of the FISA court during times which may have included Manaforts discussions with President Trump. The FISA court gave the Obama Justice Dept. permission to listen in on Manafort on two occasions. The second time a warrant was issued was based on the faked intelligence report written by the Russians that attempted to smear President Trump. That warrant was still in effect after Trumps inauguration and may have recorded conversations between Manafort and the President. The electronic surveillance continued until lawyers for the President and Manafort insisted that they stop, according to unnamed sources. Last March, President Trump used his Twitter account to accuse former President Obama of surveilling him while he was still headquartered in Trump Tower. The Justice Department and the FBI have denied that President Trump was surveilled, however, during the campaign, Manafort had a residence in Trump Tower as well as his home in Alexandria, VA.

First orangutan birth in Aceh reserve gives hope for survival of species "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The first baby orangutan was born at the Pinus Jantho Nature Reserve in Sumatra, a sign that the species might survive the global extinction crisis now underway. Jantho serves as one of two release sites for the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme (SOCP), a nonprofit that rehabilitates the apes kept as pets or driven into conflict with humans. Previously devoid of orangutans, the reserve now holds an entirely new population of the critically endangered primates. During a patrol, SOCP staff and government officials spotted an adult female orangutan carrying the newborn. We really werent expecting to see this little guy when we went to Jantho the other day, it was a real surprise, and a real treat! Sapto Aji Prabowo, head of the Natural Resources Conservation Agencys (BKSDA) branch in Aceh province, said in a statement. The infant, a boy, was subsequently named Masen after the Ulu Masen Ecosystem, where Jantho is located.

Backed by Civil Rights Genius Dr. Cornel West, Tribes Defy Storm, Bureaucracy & Deliver Name Change Declaration to Yellowstone "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Tribal leaders enter Yellowstone Park

Published September 19, 2017

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK  I stand in strong solidarity with you and my indigenous brothers and sisters in your demands to change the names in Yellowstone from war criminals to humane and freedom-loving people! Dr. Cornel West informed Chief Stan Grier, a message sent for tribal leaders on the eve of their unity protest in Yellowstone. That Harvard professor Dr. West, once described by President Obama as a genius, a public intellectual, a preacher, an oracle and the most exciting black American scholar ever by critics, has publicly supported Tribal Nations efforts to change the names of proponents and exponents of indigenous genocide in Yellowstone, suggests the traction and profile the issue is gaining.

Despite a winter storm warning, three of Yellowstones five entrances being closed due to snow, and a last-minute change to an indoor from outdoor venue, before tribal leaders presentations could begin in Gardiner, Montana on Saturday, additional chairs had to be provided for attendees. Of the sixteen tribal leaders present, Grier, Chief of the Piikani Nation of the Blackfoot Confederacy, was first to speak. Grier used the Blackfoot Confederacys rights from the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty and 1855 Lame Bull Treaty to reemphasize the Piikanis standing in Yellowstone.

My personal uniform for work is a tank top, skirt, and cardigan, so I was excited when Grainline Studio released their Hadley top, which can be made sleeveless with any of the mix-and-match fronts and backs. Read on for all the info about my Adorn cotton lawn Hadley top.

I chose to sew a size 6, which matched up with my upper bust measurement, and I folded the dart out completely. (On a side note, I noticed that the dart legs on view B are further apart than the dart legs on view A. How interesting!)

I liked the high-low hem to begin with, but an additional benefit was that even if I was overly aggressive in taking the dart out completely, its not too noticeable since its meant to be a high-low hem! ;D

Speaking of the hem, I LOVE deep, faced hems!

N. Korean Nuke Tests Could Trigger Supervolcano, 1792 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level cyber protection. https://www.jeevycomputers.com/pcs/ Good evening, Im still reporting on: N. Korean Nuke Tests Could Trigger Supervolcano, 1792 Synopsis: The last North Korean underground nuke test inside Mt. Mantap, set off worrisome deep-earth tremors that may signal the reawakening of nearby Mt. Paektu, historys most devastating supervolcano. Mt. Paektu last exploded in the year 946. Despite blowing off the top of the mountain and creating a huge lake Lake Chon 8 miles wide in its caldera, it still stands as North Koreas highest mountain at 9,000 feet, only about 30 miles to the northwest of the nuclear test site inside Mount Mantap. Despite North Koreas distrust of foreigners, especially scientists, an international committee has been allowed to take a look at the situation. According to one of the researchers, Dr. James Hammond, of the Univ. of London, the last eruption was the most devastating in history. Ashes showered much of Japan, 500 miles away. According to another member of this team, Dr. Stephen Grant, a seismologist at the Univ. of Austin says: The risk of a destructive eruption is very real. The team concluded that the 946 eruption of Mr. Paektu could have released more sulphur into the atmosphere than the 1815 eruption of Mt. Tambora in 1815 in Indonesia. That eruption caused what was known as the year without a summer because so much ash was hurtled into the upper atmosphere that global temperatures plummeted worldwide causing crop failures and famines worldwide. Even in the northern hemisphere, a high-altitude reddish fog reddened and dimmed the sunlight so that sunspots were visible to the naked eye. Such detailed records are not available from the last eruption of Mt. Peaktu a thousand years ago, but at least it was the second only to Mt. Tambora. Scientists have now created a Volcanic Explosivity Index, or VEI. Mt. Paektu and Mt. Tambora are the only two volcanic eruptions which merit a VEI of 7. To provide some scale, a more recent explosive volcano was also in the islands that today make up Indonesia Krakatoa in 1883 68 years after Mt. Tambora. It is now designated as a VEI-6 volcanic eruption, but lets look at the consequences.

Toys R Us bankruptcy means parents will have to take their kids somewhere else to cry when they dont get what they want "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Parents across the US and Canada may been left without a place to take their children to have tantrums after Toys R Us has filed for bankruptcy.

The company, which has nearly 1,600 stores in North America has struggled against larger rivals such as Amazon.

The online experience simply isnt the same, said one worried parent.

Having my kids throw a shitfit in front of a laptop when I refuse to buy them things off Amazon I cant afford just isnt the same as watching them have a complete meltdown in giant shed full of expensive toys that I cant afford.

The generous acoustics of the average branch of Toys R Us lend their hysterical shrieking an almost cathedral-like quality.

Other parents were able to relate to the companys financial problems.

Being saddled with enormous long-term debt is exactly what happens to me when I visit Toys R Us at Christmas.

The Largest Glaciers in the Rocky Mountains are Melting Faster "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Research on top of the Dinwoody Glacier

SCIENCE The Rockies largest glaciers are melting with little fanfare

From an Article by Benjamin Storrow, E & E News, September 13, 2017

WIND RIVER RANGE, Wyo. Here at the roof of the Continental Divide, one of the Rocky Mountains largest glaciers is in retreat.

A new world is emerging in the wake of the receding ice. In a vast, glacially carved basin, where towering spires of granite dominate the skyline, a small colony of stunted Engelmann spruce has taken up residence in a pile of rocky debris, some 500 feet above the tree line. Bees flit among the yellow mountain asters dotting the boulder field at the glaciers base. Grass grows along a stream where there was, until recently, only snow and ice.

Its a different place today, Darran Wells, an outdoor education professor at Central Wyoming College, observed from a research camp near the base of the Dinwoody Glacier on a recent evening. A regular visitor to the glacier over the last two decades, Wells offered a succinct take on its evolution over his nightly meal, a dehydrated serving of shepards potato stew with beef.

Every year, more grass, less snow, he said.

The largest concentration of glaciers in the American Rocky Mountains are melting, unseen, in this remote corner of Wyoming. More than 100 glaciers cover about 10,000 acres in the Wind River Range, according to a recent study by researchers at Portland State University. No American mountain range outside Alaska and Washington is covered in more ice.

The Wind River glaciers remain some of the least understood ice sheets in North America. Researchers dont have a firm grasp on the amount of water locked away in the alpine ice, and estimates of how much they contribute to local streams vary widely.

Answering those questions requires penetrating a rugged wilderness nearly the size of Rhode Island and climbing to elevations between 11,000 feet and 13,800 feet, where the glaciers hug the crest of the Continental Divide.

Today, a growing number of scientists are pushing into the backcountry to understand these icy reservoirs. Their concern: The Wind River glaciers are retreating just when Wyoming needs them most.

If you havent had proximity to these glaciers,...

Laurie Anderson Introduces Her Virtual Reality Installation That Lets You Fly Magically Through Stories "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

While the sci-fi dreams of virtual and augmented reality are now within the grasp of artists and game designers, the technology of the adult human brain remains rooted in the stone agewe still need a good story to accompany the flickering shadows on the cave wall. An artist as wise as Laurie Anderson understands this, butgiven that its Laurie Andersonshe isnt going to retread familiar narrative paths, especially when working in the vehicle of VR, as she has in her new piece Chalkroom, created in a collaboration with Taiwanese artist Hsin-Chien Huang.

The piece allows viewers the opportunity to travel not only into the space of imagination a story creates, but into the very architecture of story itselfto walk, or rather float, through its passageways as words and letters drift by like tufts of dandelion, stars, or, as Anderson puts it, like snow. Theyre there to define the space and to show you a little bit about what it is, says the artist in the interview above, But theyre actually fractured languages, so its kind of exploded things. She explains the chalkroom concept as resisting the perfect, slick and shiny aesthetic that characterizes most computer-generated images. It has a certain tactility and made-by-hand kind of thing this is gritty and drippy and filled with dust and dirt.




Chalkroom, she says, "is a library of stories, and no one will ever find them all. It sounds to me, at least, more intriguing than the premise of most video games, but the audience for this piece will be limited, not only to those willing to give it a chance, but to those who can experience the piece firsthand, as it were, by visiting the physical space of one of Andersons exhibitions and strapping on the VR goggles. Once they do, she says, they will be able to fly, a disorienting experience that sends some people falling out of their chair. Last spring, Chalkroom became part of an ongoing exhibit at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, a Laurie Anderson pilgrimage, as...

Wayne Rooney Sentenced to 100 Hours of Playing Up Front for Everton "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

 

In a harsh sentence handed down today for drink-driving, Wayne Rooney was ordered to help those less fortunate in society and received 100 hours of community service to be served playing up front for Everton. Its a big come-down for the former England skipper, although he will be relieved he has been allowed to keep his b*llocks by wife Coleen.

Rooney expressed his remorse at being caught drink-driving and promised that next time he did it, he would try his very best not to get caught.

Prosecutors had been pushing for a harsher punishment to send out a strong signal and asked the Judge to transfer him to Crystal Palace, but the Judge declined feeling that would amount to cruel and unusual punishment. He felt nearly two seasons of playing for the Toffees was harsh enough as it was. Passing sentence, the Judge noted: 90 minutes of solitary confinement up front every Saturday for Everton, forced to live off modest scraps, will give him plenty of time to reflect on what he has lost.

Handcrafted Japanese Shop Signs Perfected the Art of Advertising "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A 19th-century kattamen kanban for a sake brewer

Its a centuries-old art form that is little known today: the handmade street signs of Japan that once lined commercial streets, long before the era of the neon sign. Known as kanban, these ancient advertisements were highly specific, not only in terms of the goods they marketed, but also in terms of their designs and messages. Shop owners often commissioned professional artisans known as kanban-shi to craft them, at times splurging more on a calligraphy specialist to spell out their businesses names in beautiful characters. The signs promoted everything from sake to wigs to laxative pills for a healthy stomach.

Late-19th-century sage kanban for pipe shop

About 60 examples of kanban are currently on view at San Diegos Mingei International Museum in an exhibition curated by Alan Scott Pate. Produced largely during the Edo and Meiji eras, at the time these signs were regarded less as artworks than as functional placards, but collectors began preserving them as early as the late 19th century, and many are now in museum collections.

There were once kanban to represent almost every trade, carefully crafted before the arrival of modern materials like the shiny metals and neon that gradually r...

Seriously, dude. All night youve been down at that end of the bar mean-mugging me. I mean, what the fuck? Ive got a lot going on tonight. What gives you the right to stare at me like Im some piece of meat? Didnt your parents ever teach you that its rude to stare? Youre acting like a goddamn creep.

There are a lot of ladies at the bar, a lot of friends to hook up with shots, and I just dont have the patience to deal with a bunch of you snotty kids that wanna leer at me all night just because I dont like whatever stupid popcore band is playing. You think its easy being the only bartender working tonight? No, its extremely stressful actually, and youre only adding to it with your shit.

Do you realize that in the time Ive been over here talking to you about a dozen other people came to the bar looking for a drink? No, I bet youre so oblivious you didnt even notice. So Im really sorry, but I dont have the time to horse around and figure out what kind of game youre playing. Some of us have work to do.

New Tool to Assess Usefulness of Clinical Guidelines "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Medical Xpress: A new tool, G-TRUST (the Guideline Trustworthiness, Relevance, and Utility Scoring Tool) has been developed to help clinicians assess the usefulness of clinical guidelines in their treatment of patients.

In every medical specialty, physicians are required to review multiple sets of practice guidelines to determine their usefulness for a specific patients treatment. Such tools are often developed primarily for research and further guideline development rather than direct clinical application, said first and corresponding author Allen Shaughnessy, Pharm.D., M.Med.Ed., professor at Tufts University School of Medicine and fellowship director of the Tufts University Family Medicine Residency Program at Cambridge Health Alliance.

As an aid to practicing clinicians, the research team developed a straightforward eight-point tool for scoring clinical guidelines to assess their usefulness that can be applied in a clinical setting.

APA to Release Guidelines for Fat-Shaming Kids for Profit "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Ravishly: The American Psychological Association has released a draft of their Clinical Practice Guideline for the Behavioral Treatment of Obesity and Overweight in Children and Adolescents. These guidelines promote fat-shaming and sizeism directed at young people and could potentially lead to disordered eating and trauma.

these guidelines dont appear to have anything to do with helping people who need psychological treatment. It seems to me that somebody finally told the APA how much money the fat phobia industry makes for those who claim (however dubiously) that they can make fat people thin and, despite what well soon find is an astounding lack of evidence, the APA and its members want their piece of that anti-obesity money pie.

They acknowledge that there is tremendous stigma directed toward kids with larger bodies, but they are using that to back up their assertion that fat kids should get treatment to become thin. So the APA is basically suggesting that fat kids acquiesce to their bullies. As a queer woman, I see this logic and wonder if they are suggesting that queer kids who get bullied have reparative therapy to try to become straight (which, like weight loss attempts, is highly unlikely to work and can do physical and mental harm).

Navajo Nation Creating Navajo Managed Care Organization "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo Nation Vice President Jonathan Nez and President Russell Begaye

Published September 19, 2017

WINDOW ROCK The Office of the President and Vice President (OPVP) has been working on creating an entity that will offer Medicaid managed care services to Navajo tribal members, along with other Native American tribes, under New Mexicos Centennial Care 2.0 Program.

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye met with New Mexico state and federal government officials to begin the process of establishing a Navajo-owned managed care organization (MCO) as part of the Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) 1115 demonstration waiver.

Creating a Navajo MCO will change the healthcare landscape of the Navajo Nation, President Begaye said. It will provide Medicaid benefits, services and support that enhance our current IHS healthcare and P.L.638 healthcare. We hope to improve quality and preventative care by being able to track the health care history of each Navajo Medicaid patient throughout the course of their lives.

The design of the Navajo MCO is based on a federal provision which acknowledges the sovereign right of American Indian tribes and Alaskan Natives to establish managed care services for their members.

Fee-for-service will remain an option for New Mexico Medicaid recipients. However, the Navajo MCO will be an option that takes into account the unique practical, financial and cultural needs of Native Americans.

In many situations, tribal members are referred to health care providers in cities that are hours away from their homes.  This results in millions of dollars in health care leaving the Navajo Nation that could be reinvested into improving health care systems for the Navajo people.

The Navajo MCO will be able to design specific value-added services that go above and beyond traditional fee-for-service Medicaid benefits. Value-added services will address Navajo Medicaid member needs like traditional healing, transportation, care coordination, home health care, community services and supports, telehealth and other benefits that will be designed with input from tribal leadership and the community. Future members will be able to speak Navaj...

Opinion: If You Live in My Sims Town, You Better Learn to Speak Gibberish "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

 

Original article has been translated from Simlish for clarity.

Immigration continues to be a dividing issue, and it can be hard to find the truth through all the different voices, especially when theres a language barrier in the way.  So while it may not be a popular opinion, I believe that if you live in my Sims town, you should learn to speak Gibberish.

I see it more every day, from the barista at my coffee shop saying Good Morning instead of  Bloo Bagoo, to the ATMs having the English option above the Simlish option.

Velvet Underground Excited to be Discovered by Incoming College Freshmen "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NEW YORK  The legendary art-rock band the Velvet Underground eagerly anticipate the bands upcoming discovery by thousands of college freshmen this fall semester and subsequent sales bump, a press release confirmed today.

We in the Velvet Underground absolutely love autumn, read the statement from the 60s rock outfit. The changing leaves, pumpkin spice everything and, most of all, that sweet, sweet cash we see each year as new students first hear our cerebral-yet-visceral brand of rocknroll.

Since 1966, excitable college freshman have stumbled upon the groundbreaking albums of the Velvet Underground, sharing their new-found enthusiasm for the band as if theyre the first to discover them, according to historians.

Velvet Undergrounds accessibly challenging music is frequently used by college freshman as a way to impress one another, noted Dr. Thad Ruffa in a recent published report.

Financial records show an annual renewal of interest in the bands music consistently yields a huge increase in Spotify plays, iTunes downloads, and album sales.

You can almost set your watch by it. If theres an increase in our lyrics shared on Facebook, or dozens of new YouTube videos of young people clumsily strumming Heroin, the Fall semester has begun, said the band. We are so happy to be a part of the maturation process of so many kids.

Ka-ching! the Velvet Underground added.

One poll showed a majority of college students were entirely unaware of the bands decades-long following, or that liking the Velvet Underground doesnt make them special.

Well, Ive always had very unique and sophisticated tastes, so its no surprise Id form such a bond with the Velvets, said 18-year-old college freshman Kyle Dunlop. Im the same way with cinema my favorite film is Donnie Darko. And I have always loved the works of Wes Anderson. You should look him up.

Take Fate by the Throat: Beethoven on Creative Vitality and Resilience in the Face of Suffering "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Day by day I am approaching the goal which I apprehend but cannot describe.


Take Fate by the Throat: Beethoven on Creative Vitality and Resilience in the Face of Suffering

After all that has been said and mused upon the natural ills, the anxiety, and wearing out experienced by the true artist, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, who paved the way for women in the arts, wrote in reflecting on art and suffering from her sickbed, is not the good immeasurably greater than the evil? The great nineteenth-century poet is among the handful of highly influential artists who, like Frida Kahlo, surmounted an inordinate share of physical suffering to make art of unassailable beauty that heals the human spirit.

Among those few was Ludwig van Beethoven (December 16, 1770March 26, 1827), whose abidingly transcendent music sprang from the common fountain of his joy and his suffering. By his late twenties, Beethoven had begun losing his hearing a deterioration that would result in near-total deafness by the end of his life, the source of which remains a medical mystery and the object of ample speculative mythologizing. One contemporary biographer has proposed lead poisoning, while the composer himself allegedly implicated a fit of fury a second-hand account reported to his first serious biographer held that when a tenor interrupted Beethovens creative flo...

Media rounds on Corbyn for not having sex with pig "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The new Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn came under fresh pressure today as it was revealed that at no point during his student years did he take part in the normal student high-jinks that do so much to endear modern politicians to the British electorate. Downing Street accused Jeremy Corbyn of being too much of a socialist puritan in his youth to have even done the normal harmless stuff, like for example, enjoying having sex with a severed pigs head.

I mean, come on, we all did it said a Conservative press officer to the nodding press pack. Weve all at one time smoked a little pot while listening to Supertramp.  Weve all got drunk and made idiots of ourselves, weve all er, stuck our cock and balls in the mouth of a severed pigs head.  But not Comrade Corbyn! he declared, as shocked reporters scribbled down this exclusive ready for the next days front pages.

The Daily Mail editorial compared Corbyns lack of university larks to that of IS recruits, who often shun traditional British social traditions such as porcine blow jobs. In a similar vein Metro branded the Labour leader Comrade Killjoy, while the Sun published a double page spread of pigs in lingerie headlined Sizzling Hot British Porkers.

Jeremy Corbyn seemed to be caught off-guard when a news interviewer tried to press him on whether he would now have sex with a pig, as is expected under the traditions of the unwritten British constitution. Um, I did not know that custom was required for aspiring British Prime Ministers. Um, Ill have to think about doing that.

But come on, will you now commit to getting a blow job from a severed pigs head?  Are you prepared to do that in order to be taken seriously as a possible Prime Minister?

A panicking Labour Party attempted to find anything that might show that their man was as good as the PM and hastily arranged a press conference in which a self-conscious looking Jeremy Corbyn attempted to a kiss and cuddle a Miss Piggy puppet.

Its pathetic! said one voter in the key marginal of Nuneaton. Thats not having sex with a dead pig its just a cop out!

Typical Labour said another; Theyre just Tory-Lite. If I want to vote for a leader who has sex with a pig, Id vote for the real thing.

Indonesia abuzz over possible finding of extinct tiger "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA Based on a photographic evidence, park officials in Indonesia reported the possible sighting of the Javan tiger (Panthera tigris sondaica) some 14 years after the animal was officially declared extinct. In the middle of doing a field survey on Aug. 25, a ranger from Ujung Kulon National Park in West Java photographed a big cat that officials failed to immediately identify. It subsequently sparked a speculation that the beast could be the Javan tiger which was last sighted in the island in 1976. An unidentified big cat was photographed last month by a ranger from Ujung Kulon National Park. Officials claim the animal could be the Extinct Javan tiger. Photo courtesy of Ujung Kulon National Park. This used to be the habitat of Javan tiger, Mamat Rahmat, chief of the park, told local news media last Wednesday. We hope that they still exist. The report, which went viral across the internet, has prompted Indonesias Ministry of Environment and Forestry and NGO World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to deploy a team to investigate and set up more camera traps to gather more information and samples. The stripes [on the cat] appear to be similar like that of Javan tiger, but its posture is questionable, Wiratno, the director general of natural resources conservation, told local news media. This is among the things that we want to confirm. Meanwhile, the report has received skepticism from some experts who suggested that the creature resembled more the Critically Endangered Javan leopard (Panthera pardus melas).

His speech was eloquent and mesmerizing, awing all the people present, We analyzed the entire situation of the world from within the most classified backchannels at the very core of the Pursuance Projects alpha test. I beg to differ with Dr. Angstrom H. Troubador, who has been stalking me online! Youve got to understand, the American Dream is a series of these classic, 18th century liberal self-destroying enterprises, from Raleigh Theodore Sakers Company to Myspace and on now the unimaginable cyber shores beyond the depravity of Crash and the mind-programming Silicon Valley lifestyle-franchising mafiosos seizing power with weaponized teen pussy in Snowcrash, Mason & Dixon, multiverse computer games, and Jesus Christ himself reborn once again as Advanced Human, former Voice of Anonymous, and only man with the cell phone that can text God himself, Christopher The Voice Nemelka. Whereupon you find yourself at the mercy of a pussy grabbing game show host whos been barking fake news about Obamas Nigerian Daddy for years and now hes telling you, youre fired. Thats the American Dream.

Wow that made profound sense and had something to do with the world of politics and it increases my value to read all those inside jokes. As an erudite and attentive reader of incredible literature this is what I enjoy most. But that couldnt have been Barrett Brown, Dr. Troubador tugged at his beard once, and stroked it harder and harder as he came to a logical conclusion. Firstly, he loves classic liberalism. To him it is the same thing as anarchism in that theyre both an extreme form of naturalism, both the same as his original Randian objectivism. This is very well documented. And besides, he would have said something about Pursuance Software Systems.

The Sex Pistols Make a Scandalous Appearance on the Bill Grundy Show & Introduce Punk Rock to the Startled Masses (1976) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The brainlessness and hypocrisy of television has long been a source of fun and social commentary in punk rockfrom Black Flags TV Party (I dont even bother to use my brain anymore) to the Dead Kennedys M.T.V. Get Off the Air ( feeding you endless doses / of sugar-coated mindless garbage). Its fitting then that one of the seminal moments in punk history happened on television, orchestrated by Sex Pistols manager and arch provocateur Malcolm McLaren, who knew as well as anyone how to manipulate the media. The notorious Bill Grundy interview, which you can watchlikely not for the first or even second timeabove, rocketed the Sex Pistols to national infamy overnight, simply because of a few swear words and some slightly rude behavior.

Though the U.S. does its damndest to keep up these days, no one in 1976 could match the outrage machinery of the UK press. As rock photographer and manager Leee Black Childers put it in the oral history of punk, Please Kill Me, the tabloids "can work the populace into a frenzy. McLaren goes on record to say, I knew the Bill Grundy show was going to create a huge scandal. I genuinely believed it would be history in the making. We might expect him to take credit after the fact, but in any case, it worked: the day after the bands appearance on the Grundy-hosted Today show on Thames Television, every tabloid paper featured them on the front page. The Daily Mirror provided the title of Julien Temples 2000 documentary with their clever headline, The Filth and the Fury.

This comment left on a New York Times brownie recipe has quite a twist at the end "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

@Samdolnick over on Twitter has spotted quite a comment in response to a recipe called Katharine Hepburns brownies.

This has been my go-to brownie recipe for 30 years, even after going to baking school! I agree that using the best cocoa possible makes a difference. These days, I use Callebaut, Sydne Newberry wrote one year ago. Fair enough!

In the 80s, an acquaintance in Germany to whom I brought some of the brownies, and who considered herself a great cook, asked for the recipe but was never able to get it to work. She kept asking me what she was doing wrong and I was never able to solve her problem. Eventually, she moved to the US and stole my husband!

A ONE-LEGGED SCOTT HAS EXPRESSED HIS DEEPEST REGRETS THIS MORNING.

The NRL has come down heavily on Cowboys power forward Matt Scott after an internal investigation revealed he was preparing to gamble on the teams next match against the Roosters.

An undercover sting operation has caught Matt Scott red-handed, NRL CEO Todd Greenberg said today.

Matthew was preparing to take the field against the Roosters with only one fully-functional knee we cant tolerate that kind of gambling in the NRL.

A contrite Scott fronted the media a few moments ago to address the issue.

Im deeply apologetic for my actions, Scott told reporters.

I just wanted to get back on the field so badly that I was prepared to literally hop through the entire match I even had a specially designed footy boot to support my bodyweight and everything.

I realise in hindsight that this wouldve brought the game into disrepute.

The controversy surrounding Scott arrives only weeks after another Cowboys gambling scandal regarding Ray Thompson.

The club is very sorry for ever taking the gamble and allowing Ray to ever play for us, Cowboys coach Paul Green said a fortnight ago.

[Kp note: I am absolutely not getting into any whos/whats right and whats not deals here. Putting it out for information, mainly because something rang in me to put it out.]

Im not putting any judgement into any of this regarding Ben Fulford. However, I found several points for thought here, that kind of hit home, especially about the terms America, U.S., etc.

the U.S. is not America America is the paramount security interest holder and Priority Creditor of not only the U.S. but also all the corporations that have chartered under them.

America meaning the American states and people is the richest country on Earth and by far the greatest Creditor. America owns all the Territorial and Municipal Governments worldwide including CHINA and JAPAN. And all the corporations that have been formed under the auspices of all these Territorial and Municipal Governments.

This means that when America pulls the chain, the rest of the countries on this planet need to own up to their own debts to us not the U.S. meaning the cesspool in the District of Columbia which is the responsibility of the Pope and the British Monarch.

Its the U.S. that is bankrupt well and deservedly so and it is the problem of the British Monarch and the Pope that it is, because the U.S. is now and always has been a separate and foreign entity from the American states and people

Mounting evidence reminds us how human actions have begun changing the climate and forced an awareness of global warmings impact on the quality of human life. That awareness will be top of mind for participants in the 72nd Regular Session of the UN General Assembly taking place in New York City this week. General Debate in the assembly this year considers the theme of Focusing on People: Striving for Peace and a Decent Life for All on a Sustainable Planet. That topic deliberately invites discussion about the inter-connectedness of all the worlds people and our dependence on a shared planet if we are to thrive and prosper. A critical dimension of this is our collective responsibility to sustain the integrity of the natural ecosystems upon which our aspirations for peace and a decent life for all depend.

This is an analogy for what is happening in the USA today: The driver and the navigators represent the political administration in charge at the White House with their increasingly reckless spending of borrowed money that is destroying the American economy, while the passengers are the people theyre supposed to be serving with best interest at heart.

High Cost of Corn and Saving Prairies "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Take a drive through the U.S. Midwest and you cant miss the seemingly endless fields of corn. Depending on the season, the corn may be tall and green or dry and brown, or even already plowed, leaving vast swatches of barren soil exposed. None of the scenarios would appear particularly noteworthy to the average passerby, and certainly not cause for alarm.

However, if you dig a bit deeper into the reality of not just the U.S. Corn Belt, but also the massive amounts of corn being grown around the globe, a darker picture begins to emerge. Gone are the days of small-town farmers growing just enough corn to feed locals and, perhaps, their livestock over the winter.

In the 21st century, the two major consumers of corn are industrial in nature: concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and ethanol. Theres now so much corn grown in the U.S. that the Corn Belt (typically said to include corn grown across Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and parts of Nebraska and Kansas) can be seen from space, courtesy of satellite chlorophyll-sensors.1

Theres a tendency to think of corn as natural and even all-American, but as its true environmental costs become clear growing corn is not only chemical-intensive but also requires significant amounts of water and land, leading to air pollution, water scarcity and more accountability is becoming more important.

Where in the Supply Chain Is Corn Causing the Most Environmental Harm?

A study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tackled the monumental task of figuring out which U.S. counties produced the most corn as well as where that corn ended up downstream, right down to the various supply chains and industries.2 Think of the new research as a computer model of the United States of Corn, Bloomberg reported, continuing:3

The general problem that the researchers took on prompted by a collaboration with the nongovernmental organization the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) is that some 75 percent of the carbon dioxide emissions and water use of economic production is bound up in an enormous, poorly documented network of supply chains.

Given the importan...

How University Foundations Circumvent Conflict of Interest Disclosure Rules and Hide Corporate Ties to Faculty "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

In the last few years, freedom of information act (FOIA) requests have revealed a loophole that allows corporations to hide funds given to university-based researchers and academics, thereby also hiding their behind-the-scenes collaborations to promote corporate viewpoints while maintaining an air of independence. A recent defamation suit offers an intriguing opportunity to shed even more light on this, what appears to be, common practice.

FOIA Documents Revealed Professor's Big Ag Links

Kevin Folta a plant scientist and professor at the University of Florida and an outspoken advocate of genetic engineering became a posterchild for this kind of disclosure avoidance when, two years ago, a FOIA request by the California-based activist group US Right to Know (USRTK) produced correspondence revealing Folta had instructed Monsanto on how to avoid disclosing funding his work by depositing the money into the university's SHARE (Special Help for Agricultural Research and Education) contribution account.

As noted by Folta in his proposal to Monsanto,1 "a SHARE contribution is not subject to IDC and is not in a conflict-of-interest account. In other words, SHARE contributions are not publicly noted. This eliminates the potential concern of the funding organization influencing the message." Put another way, by making a SHARE contribution, the link between Folta and Monsanto would remain hidden, and his public promotion of biotech would not be tainted by obvious suspicions of conflicts of interest.

This is one of the biggest scams going. Universities have very strict conflict of interest rules in place, all of which are effectively circumvented by giving the funds as a grant to the University of Florida Foundation, which operates as a separate, non-public entity. The foundation then issues the money to individual researchers' programs. Yet, even though the money can be easily earmarked for a specific individual or program, financial contributions to the foundation do not need to be publicly disclosed.

While this loophole is news for many, evidence suggests researchers and academics have routinely used it to avoid conflicts of interest disclosure rules. Bruce Chassy was caught doing the same thing. An investigation by Chicago WBEZ news discovered Monsanto paid the now retired University of Illinois' professor more than $57,000 over two years for travel, writing and speaking expenses, yet Chassy never disclosed his financial ties to the comp...

Our Bodies Are Becoming Plastic "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

It was a sad day in October 2015 when researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) announced they had detected plastic litter on the surface of Arctic waters.1 Greenland sharks and seabirds living in the area were already known to be eating the debris,2 but the appearance of 31 pieces of floating debris in an otherwise largely pristine environment painted a disturbing picture of pollution problems that will only get worse if the amounts of litter entering the oceans arent reduced.

With plastics now entering the farthest reaches of the globe, what does that mean for the environments where these pollutants are known to accumulate? Mismanaged waste is particularly problematic in China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines, which together make up the top five countries for plastic pollution.3 In the U.S., one of the top waste-generating countries, littering is a major issue, especially in the form of single-use plastics, like soda bottles, drinking straws and potato chip bags.

According to environmental advocacy group Ocean Conservancy, some plastic products persist for so long, even in salty ocean water, that theyll still be recognizable after 400 years.4 However, an equally alarming problem is the plastics that do get broken down into tiny pieces. Microplastic particles, which are less than 5 millimeters long, are literally clouding the oceans in spots.

Carried along with the oceans currents, swirling gyres of plastic smog5 now cover about 40 percent of the worlds ocean surfaces.6 Theyre being eaten by fish and other marine life that is well-known. But only recently did researchers take the logical next step to determine that its not only marine life ingesting plastic you probably are too.

How To Stop Worrying What People Think "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

If you keep holding yourself back and worrying about what other people think of you, then this is for you

Although people may talk or make comments, really nobody is actually thinking of you that much. People are more concerned about themselves than they are about you. Everyone is just a 1-second thought in someones head.

Its apart of life that we care what people think, but when you start holding yourself back:

Know that you are here for a bigger reason.

You arent here to please everyone.

If you are, thats why you are caring so much.

People are entitled to their own voice and opinions, but their opinion is theirs and their truth. It doesnt mean it the truth.

Their opinions are how they see the world, it has nothing to do with you. Everyone is going through their own life experience.

What people think about you is none of your business.

Its really not about what they think, its about how you are going to let it control your actions.You cant control how others see you but you can control how you see yourself. When someone tells you, you cant thats their limitation on yours.

No one should have power over your internal condition and if someone says something to you that affects you, it could be a signal or a blessing in disguise to inspire you to move forward.

Its not what happens to us but our response to what happens to us that hurts us.

Choose to take your power back no one can hurt you without your mental consent.

We all spend our 20s and 30s trying so hard to be perfect because we are so worried about what people think. When we get to our 40s and 50s we finally start to be free because we decide that we dont give a damn what anyone thinks. But you wont be free until you reach your 60s when you realize the truth nobody was thinking about you anyhow. Elizabeth Gilbert

And its true. You can worry about whats people think and whether people like you but really does anyone really care?

How to Stop Worrying What People Think in 3 Steps

  1. Fast forward to when you are 90 years old, would your 90-year-old self tell you to hold yourself back because of what these people are saying?
  2. Accept you care, whi...

There are some very fascinating developments that may move in favor of disclosure happening bigger and faster than we had anticipated. I hope we will be able to talk about some of them soon enough. We may very well see things move much faster than the alleged Partial Disclosure scenario.

At the same time, the loyal opposition wants both Corey and me gone more than ever We are not going to be actively hunted down, so we are told, but if there is a window of opportunity where either of us are in the right place at the right time, they feel they Must make an effort to do it Thankfully the Alliance is aware of this and has our backs like never before.

Tree Hugging Improves Your Health "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

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".

10 Traits Empathic People Share "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Judith Orloff M.D.; Psychology Today

The trademark of an empath is feeling and absorbing other peoples 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."

Why The Women Society Calls Damaged Are The Most Powerful "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Shahida Arabi; badwitch.es

Here is a truth you often dont 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, youll know there is no going back. Dont 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.

Top Financial Expert Warns Stocks Need To Drop Between 30 And 40 Percent As Bankruptcy Looms For Toys R Us "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(By Michael Snyder) Will there be a major stock market crash before the end of 2017?  To many of us, it seems like we have been waiting for this ridiculous stock market bubble to burst for a very long time.  The experts have been warning us over and over again that stocks cannot keep going up like this indefinitely, and yet this market has seemed absolutely determined to defy the laws of economics.  But most people dont

remember that we went through a similar thing before the financial crisis of 2008 as well.  I recently spoke to an investor that shorted the market three years ahead of that crash.  In the end his long-term analysis was right on the money, but his timing was just a bit off, and the same thing will be true with many of the experts this time around. On Monday, I was quite stunned to learn what Brad McMillan had just said about the market.  He is considered to be one of the brightest minds in the financial world, and he told CNBC that stocks would need to fall somewhere between 30 and 40 percent just to get to fair value READ MORE

Scientists warn super volcano nearing eruption "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Scientists have found the first direct evidence of a so-called hot zone feeding a supervolcano in southern Italy that experts say is nearing eruption conditions. Campi Flegrei is a volcanic caldera to the west of Naples that last erupted centuries ago. The area has been relatively quiet since the 1980s when the injection of either magma or fluids in the shallower structure of the volcano caused a series of small

earthquakes. Using seismological techniques, scientists have now pinpointed the location of the hot zone where hot materials rose to feed the caldera during this period. The study was led by Dr Luca De Siena at the University of Aberdeen in conjunction with the INGV Osservatorio Vesuviano, the RISSC lab of the University of Naples, and the University of Texas at Austin. The research provides a benchmark that may help predict how and where future eruptions could strike. READ MORE

Over 3,000 new US troops being sent to Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

US Defense Secretary James Mattis confirmed that over 3,000 new US troops will be headed to Afghanistan as part of President Donald Trumps new strategy to win the war that has dragged on for almost 16 years. It is exactly over 3,000 somewhat and frankly I havent signed the last of the orders right now as we look at specific, small elements that are going, Mattis told reporters on Monday

afternoon. Earlier in the day, Senator David Perdue (R-Georgia) referred to 3,500 more troops in an article published by Defense One. For too long, Americas strategy in Afghanistan was driven by politics, leading to arbitrary troop caps and unreasonable timetables for troop withdrawal, Perdue wrote, noting that enemies interpreted that as a lack of resolve.

CETA: environmentally friendly trade treaty or corporate Trojan horse? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The earlier years of CETA negotiations were met with protest in Canada. This photo was taken at a demonstration in Canadas capital, Ottawa, in September 2014. Photo by campact licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 generic license Amongst the buzz over Donald Trumps scuttling of U.S. participation in TTP, and of NAFTA being renegotiated, another major trade pact linking the European Union and Canada, the Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement or CETA, has reached maturation without much media fanfare. Heralded as a blueprint for trade agreements of the future, CETA includes several novelties in response to past public concerns over corporate overreach, most notably a new investor court system. But opponents claim provisions still exist in the agreement that threaten national sovereignty and the environment, allowing corporations greater privileges than citizens and locking in current minimum standards and regulations. CETA has been called a trade treaty Trojan horse by its opponents; potentially easing the way for larger dealings between a far more divergent group of nations, like those proposed by the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), a deal linking the U.S. with the European Union, the Transpacific Partnership (TPP), linking 12 nations bordering the Pacific Ocean, and the Trade in Services Agreement, (TISA), linking 23 nations (most included in either TTIP or TTP or both), and covering 70 percent of the worlds trade in services.

Im gay. So this postal survey feels a bit gross because you turn on the TV, log on to FB and overhear bus convos of people assessing what they think of you. Theyre scary? Theyre bad parents? Theyll taint marriage? Theyre annoying how militant they are when seeking equality, right? But I dont feel like this regularly. Itll soon be over. If I was an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person, however, all this scrutiny would be neverending. It seems like were having an informal plebiscite about them on TV, on FB, on buses every other week. Should they be allowed to drink? Should we cut their welfare? Should we destroy their religious site for a coal mine? Do they deserve an apology? Did that Black kid deserve to die? Theyre annoying how 'militant they are when seeking equality, right? Theyre in the court of public opinion all the time. Man, that would chip away at you.

Its a privilege Im only getting a small taste of it temporarily. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders get this degrading treatment and worse regularly (as well as others).*

PMID:  Nutrients. 2017 Aug 30 ;9(9). Epub 2017 Aug 30. PMID: 28867799 Abstract Title:  Could Pomegranate Juice Help in the Control of Inflammatory Diseases? Abstract:  Fruits rich in polyphenols, such as pomegranates, have been shown to have health benefits relating to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Using data obtained from PubMed and Scopus, this article provides a brief overview of the therapeutic effects of pomegranate on chronic inflammatory diseases (CID) such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), metabolic and cardiovascular disorders, and other inflammatory-associated conditions, with an emphasis on fruit-derived juices. Most studies regarding the effects of pomegranate juice have focused on its ability to treat prostate cancer, diabetes, and atherosclerosis. However, pomegranate juice has shown therapeutic potential for many other illnesses. For instance, a small number of human clinical trials have highlighted the positive effects of pomegranate juice and extract consumption on cardiovascular health. The beneficial effects of pomegranate components have also been observed in animal models for respiratory diseases, RA, neurodegenerative disease, and hyperlipidaemia. Furthermore, there exists strong evidence from rodent models suggesting that pomegranate juice can be used to effectively treat IBD, and as an anti-inflammatory agent to treat CID. The effects of pomegranate intake should be further investigated by conducting larger and more well-defined human trials.

How to dress like a New Zealand Suffragist "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

Today is the 124th anniversary of New Zealand becoming the first country in the world to allow women the right to vote.  September 19th is celebrated as White Camellia Day or New Zealand Suffrage Day, the first name after the emblem of the New Zealand suffrage movement: the white camellia.

White Camellia Day is particularly exciting this year, as Saturday is a parliamentary election, early voting is already open, so lots of women I know are planning to vote today, and there is a reasonable chance that New Zealand will elect its third female prime minister.  Im going to vote on Saturday (Mr D & I have a tradition of walking to the polls together ((daww)) and Ill be voting based on policy, not gender, but I still think its fantastic that New Zealand has already had two female prime ministers, and might have another.

In honour of the elections and Suffrage Day falling so close together, and since there has been discussion of people going to the polls dressed as suffragettes, I thought Id do a post about what New Zealand suffragettes wore, as opposed to what was worn by votes campaigners in England and the US, 20 some years after New Zealand women were already voting.

Technically speaking, New Zealand womens votes campaigners werent suffragettes at all the term refers to members of violent suffrage movements like the WSPU in England.  New Zealand campaigners were suffragists: they to achieve the vote by more peaceful means.  Suffragette as a term was not coined until the early 20th century, and was not used in New Zealand until July 1906.

New Zealand suffragists also differed from the British suffragettes in that the New Zealand womens vote moment was always determined that all women, of all walks of life, should have the vote English campaigners were willing to compromise and give the vote only to richer women, and some of the major groups, like the WSPU, were never focused on universal female suffrage.

As New Zealands most well known suffragist, Kate Sheppard, expressed it:

all that separates, whether of race, class, creed, or sex, is inhuman, and must be overcome.

So, want to honour the amazing women who made New Zealand the first country in the world to have the vote?  Heres how to dress like a suffragist, New Zealand style:

Community Rebuilds "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Community Rebuilds is a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation whose mission is to build energy efficient housing, provide education on sustainability, and improve the housing conditions of the workforce through an affordable program. Community Rebuilds constructs affordable and energy efficient straw bale homes, working with the homeowner and training a dedicated group of volunteer interns on each home project. These interns are young emerging professionals with the desire to participate in an experiential program as they learn how to build low carbon, modern natural buildings.

Program Structure
CR is currently recruiting for the Spring term (February 1st-June 30th) and Fall term (July 16th-December 15th), inviting up to sixteen student interns per project to build strawbale homes from foundation to finish under the direction of a licensed contractor and natural building experts. Interns will contribute to the foundation, frame walls, install bales, apply a variety of natural plasters, pour adobe floors, learn about electrical, plumbing, solar photovoltaics and permaculture, and take part in many other activities necessary to the completion of a home.

Semesters are subject to some variability, as the schedule of any build is dependent on many factors, such as weather and unforeseeable build challenges. However, we assure that you will be an integral part of the current build and will gain an unparalleled amount of natural and conventional construction experience. Additionally, though our internship program primarily consists of onsite, hands-on learning, the experience is occasionally supplemented with workshops, conferences, and field trips. There are no graded assignments, tests, or readings.

Our program is very team-oriented. Interns work together onsite and live together in a home provided by CR. They often get to know our selected homeowners quite well as they work with them side by side in the creation of their home. Similarly, because our CR chapters are located in wonderful, unique communities, interns have many opportunities to make new friends, perhaps volunteer with other awesome organizations, and invest a little piece of themselves into our CR communities. These partnerships are important to our organization which is based on the understanding that we are all neighbors ready to support each other and make our community better.

7 Ways To Recognise You Are Not Being Yourself "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

7 Ways To Recognise You Are Not Being Yourself:

You identify too much with the image you present to others

When we feel like we need to focus on what is expected of us too much, we lose touch with who we really are. Its good to have an understanding of the way pothers perceive you, it allows you to fit into society. But remember to act up on what you actually want and need! Most of the time we can feel insecure about whether we are well liked, and we can end up changing less desirable parts of ourselves as a result. This can have an adverse effect, as you might find the reason for any dislike is because people can tell youre not being honest about youre true character.

You forget a lot

Memory is a funny thing. A lot the time we can remember so far back to our younger years in childhood, but not what we done yesterday. If youre focusing too much energy on your conscious mind and not on your subconscious, it could mean you consistently forget. Our subconscious holds all of our memories, needs and emotional reactions. Our conscious mind is the part of us that has all these racing thoughts about every day life. It can be stressful keeping up with everything as youre not allowing yourself the time to just relax and be yourself.

You find yourself panicking and stressing over little things

Maybe youve never suffered from anxiety (or maybe you have)  but in certain situations you feel overwhelmed, especially when you would normally handle these things with ease. We can all suffer from anxiety from time to time, there doesnt need to be a medical diagnosis to be anxious. Its a completely normal and rational human response to stressful situations. Maybe you consider yourself a hold it together type of person, but you find yourself snapping at people or finding it difficult to process your emotions. This can indicate youre not being yourself.

Youre partying all the time

It is completely healthy to have a balanced social life and to want to spend time wit...

The results of this study suggest protective effects of pomegranate juice against myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Phytother Res. 2017 Sep 15. Epub 2017 Sep 15. PMID: 28913846 Abstract Title:  Cardioprotective Effects of Pomegranate (Punica granatum) Juice in Patients with Ischemic Heart Disease. Abstract:  Ischemic heart disease is the leading cause of mortality worldwide. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the cardioprotective effects of pomegranate juice in patients with ischemic heart disease. One hundred patients, diagnosed with unstable angina or myocardial infarction, were randomly assigned to the test and the control groups (n = 50, each). During 5 days of hospitalization, in addition to the conventional medical therapies, the test groups received 220 mL pomegranate juice, daily. During the hospitalization period, the blood pressure, heart rate, as well as the intensity, occurrence, and duration of the angina were evaluated on a regular basis. At the end of the hospitalization period, the serum levels of malondialdehyde, interleukin-6, and tumor necrosis factor alpha were measured in all patients. The levels of serum troponin and high-sensitive C-reactive protein levels were also assayed in patients diagnosed with myocardial infarction. Pomegranate juice caused significant reductions in the intensity, occurrence, and duration of angina pectoris in patients with unstable angina. Consistently, the test patients had significantly lower levels of serum troponin and malondialdehyde. Other studied parameters did not change significantly. The results of this study suggest protective effects of pomegranate juice against myocardial ischemia and reperfusion injury. Copyright 2017 John Wiley&Sons, Ltd.

Random Dog Interrupts Soccer Game Then Insists On Playing Fetch "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A professional soccer game was brought to an adorable halt over the weekend in Argentina after a random dog stormed the field to have a little fun of her own.

Evidently, the pup decided that ball the players had been kicking around was hers now and she proved it by showing off some pretty impressive dribbling skills.

Credit: TyC Sports

The canine interruption began about 30 minutes into a match between San Lorenzo and Arsenal de Sarand

It's unclear exactly where the dog had come from, but she clearly arrived with purpose. After an out-of-bounds hit, a player from San Lorenzo was supposed to make a corner kick. Before the ball could be retrieved, however, the rambunctious pup leapt into action, claiming it as her own. Even as officials tried to restore order, the very happy dog persisted. She apparently wanted to goad them into playing fetch.

No one seemed to mind much, though. In fact, everyone seemed to be thoroughly charmed by the dog as revealed by TyC Sports' video of the incident and subsequent interviews with some of the players.

A reporter actually tried to interview the dog about what took place but it didn't go so well.

She decided that the microphone belonged to her now, too.

San Lorenzo went on to win the match, 1-0. Did this pup have something do with that? Probably.

Either way, the team was so impressed by the presumably stray dog that they've actually given her a job. According to news outlet Ol, the stadium's groundskeeper has adopted her. She'll work on site with a few oth...

10 Easy Steps to Train Your Brain to Let Go of Bad Habits "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Letting go of bad habits comes easy once you understand how neural pathways are created in the brain.

Our nerve cells have superhighways called neural pathways that transmit messages. The more you travel over the superhighway, the more you solidify the pathway.

Activities like eating comfort foods for a longer period is forming a pathway in the brain.

The good news is our brain is constantly changing which makes it easier for us to forge new pathways and create new habits. This is due to our brains neuroplasticity which allows anything to be possible.

People who have previously suffered from strokes have the ability to retain their brains to keep functioning again by building new pathways. Anyone has the potential to learn new behaviours and attitudes that can transform their lives.

Whatever habits you wish to learn, as long as you have the will to do it, youre able to build a new pathway and reprogram your brain. The following are the easy steps to do it:

10 Easy Steps to Train Your Brain to Let Go Of Bad Habits

1. Recognize the habits you wish to change then set your intention.

Identify the old habits that no longer support you. Then set your intention for it.

The intention sets everything in motion. When your intention is high, you are bound to create new pathways in your brain.

2. Observe how your old habit or pathway affects you.

Lok at your emotions, your thoughts and the way your body responds to the habit. Then see the result that you desire to create.

Be aware of everything thats going on inside of you. Be your own witness.

The Onion Field (1890)

On the 19th of September 1854, English photographer, and a proponent of pictorial or impressionistic photography, George Davidson was born in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England. He is noted as one of the most important figures in the development of Pictorial photography at the end of the nineteenth century. Born into a comparatively modest family his father was a shipyard carpenter he was the only one of his siblings who was lucky enough to receive a secondary education.

Here is How to Easily Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind According to A Hindu Priest "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

While some of us believe we are victims of our fate, others have tapped the hidden powers of reprogramming our minds to create the reality we wish to live.

The subconscious mind is compared to an unseen portion of an iceberg which remains underwater. This underwater portion of the mind is always active, collecting and processing information even when we are asleep.

Your Subconsciousness is What You Call Fate!

The Freudian model of the unconscious states, the contents of the subregions of the mind are the primary guiding influence on a persons behavior, habits, and urges.

While Carl Jung states that we have to pay attention to whats going on in the lower parts of the mind, or else when we fail to bring to consciousness the unconscious, it will direct our life making us consider it as fate.

In truth, sages, monks, and those devoted to personal development have been reprogramming this subconscious part of the mind ever since.

They know how to reprogram this region of the mind with conscious intention using the process of affirmation and mantra.

Christina Sarich defines mantra as a specialized grouping of sounds and vibrations which affect the mental and physiological planes in a positive manner.

Mantras have been used by monks as a powerful means of creating desired positive outcomes in personality, habits, beliefs, and emotions.

How to Reprogram Your Subconscious Mind According to A Hindu Priest

The Hindu Priest, Dandapani, explains how this is achieved in an interview with Brian Rose of London Real:

Using Mantra or affirmation beads to actually reprogram the subconscious.

Chanting affirmations with each bead like I am happy, or I am confident.

Repeating the same chant over and over with all the 108 beads.

Do We Keep Ourselves Busy To Avoid Just Being? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Its a thought Ive pondered for some time now. Why is that we have this incessant need to be busy all the time? One way or another; we are all doing it!

In our social circles we are always doing stuff and thats exactly what it is stuff. Going out drinking, parties, social events, shopping, cinema, the list goes on Does any of it really satisfy us?

Even in our alone time, we keep ourselves busy. We scroll through social media aimlessly, watch TV, text constantly, go to the gym, cook or clean. The real question is; are we emotionally invested in any of it?!

We are conditioned from such a young age to believe that we need to work hard, fill our lives with accomplishments and achievements, study, get a good job and be successful. Does any of it really matter? Well yes, I guess to an extent is does. Im not suggesting that all of these things have no meaning or that they are completely pointless. Im just suggesting that we never actually allow ourselves the time to just be.

Ive always had an inquisitive nature and cannot rest if I do not know the way behind everything. To an extent that may be ego driven, but mostly its because I know that most of these things do not actually fulfil me on a soul level. So is it possible that other people feel the same and we just dont communicate enough to know about it?

How weird is that. The idea that we could be out doing whatever it is we do with our fiends/family/partners and we are all silently thinking to ourselves I dont want to be here or I dont want to be doing this right now. Im not saying that we dont want to be with those people, just that whatever it is we are doing is unnecessary to feel fulfilled or happy.

How many times have you said Im staying in this weekend and when the weekend comes youll be sitting alone, probably bored, and end up going out. Its like we are almost afraid of being alone with ourselves. Have you ever thought:

Side-line dads banned from boys ballet classes in abusive behaviour crack-down "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Dads who accompany their sons to ballet classes are to be banned if they use abusive and threatening behaviour from the side-lines. The move has come after complaints by other parents and ballet teachers that children are being pressurised and officials threatened by a growing number of angry fathers.

An increase in anti-social behaviour off the dance-floor has led to schools up and down the country banning parents from attending rehearsals. One ballet school described how a female teacher was physically assaulted during a rehearsal of Swan Lake.

A rather bull-necked gentleman leaped onto the stage and told her to watch her f****king step or else before cuffing his son across the ear.

Despite the teachers attempts to bring the rehearsal back to order the irate father began to pace up and down front stage yelling at his son to Shake his f****king feathers, Chase em down! and Get stuck in! causing a group of cygnets to scatter into the wings in tears before he grabbed the teacher by the throat.

Speaking later in his defence at Maidstone Magistrates Court he outlined what had happened.

Look, I might not be a qualified ballet teacher but when Charlie was told to perform a frontal Grande Battement straight after hed come out of that Grand Jet, I personally thought that was a step too far. As I saw it, he had time to do a couple of plis before chasing after them cygnets. Its logic. Besides which it really got my goat.

A spokesperson for the National Ballet Association said, Whilst we understand that parents can get a little excited in the heat of a ballet performance there is no room for abusive behaviour. As a result, only boys with double-barrelled surnames will be admitted to ballet schools in future and anyone called Elliot will have to contend with contemporary dance.

Kochie Mulling Over Replacing Ken Hinkley With The Cash Cow "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Port Adelaide President David Koch has refused to rule out replacing Port Adelaide Coach Ken Hinkley with the cash cow, following Port Adelaides disappointing finals performance.

Im not afraid of making the hard calls as President, like building a wall around our home ground to keep out the Victorians, said Kochie. I respect Ken Hinkley and admire him but as a President I want results and so far Kenny hasnt delivered.

The cash cow on the other hand he always delivers and costs a fraction of what we pay Kenny.

When asked what knowledge of football the cash cow has Kochie replied: Hes a cow, what more does he need to know. I mean the footballs are made from cow leather, not Hinkley leather.

Indigenous victory: Brazils Temer decrees 1.2 million Amazon reserve "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Tapeba Indians during a retomada (reoccupation) of their ancestral land in the Indigenous Territory of Tapeba. Photo by Renato Santana / Cimi The Temer government, widely criticized for its attacks on indigenous rights, has approved its first significant measure in favor of the countrys indigenous communities. Last week, Brazils official gazette published a decree, signed by Justice Minister Torquato Jardim, establishing the Indigenous Territory of Turubaxi-Ta along the middle reaches of the Negro River in the state of Amazonas. More than 900 Indians from ten different groups, distributed in eight villages, inhabit the reserve, which covers 1.2 million hectares (2.9 million acres). It is an important victory for the Indians, who have been struggling for over two decades to have their lands recognized. The long delay has harmed the communities, as the un-demarcated land has been repeatedly invaded by loggers and farmers. The indigenous groups are confident that the situation will now improve. We are still suffering threats and other acts of disrespect, said Carlos Nery Pira-Tapuya, president of the Association of Indigenous Communities on the Middle Negro River (ACIMRN). But we believe that, once our territory is demarcated, there will be fewer invasions and in this way our communities will be able to make great advances in administering the territory. Marivelton Barroso Bar, president of the Federation of the Indigenous Organization of the Negro River (FOIRN), said the government has finally done what it should have done years ago: It is the duty of the Brazilian state to recognise

Acanthopanax senticosus leaves could promote beneficial health effects including the prevention of metabolic syndrome. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Sci Food Agric. 2016 Aug ;96(11):3717-22. Epub 2016 Feb 3. PMID: 26676315 Abstract Title:  Antihyperlipidemic effect of Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim) Harms leaves in high-fat-diet fed mice. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Metabolic syndrome is a major risk factor for a variety of obesity-related diseases. Recently, the effects of functional foods have been investigated on lipid metabolism as a means to reduce lipid content in the blood, liver and adipose tissues associated with carnitine O-palmitoyltransferase (CPT) activity. Acanthopanax senticosus (Rupr. et Maxim) Harms (AS) is a medicinal herb possessing a wide spectra of functions including antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-fatigue actions. Despite much research being focused on the cortical roots of AS, little information is available regarding its leaves, which are also expected to promote human health, for example by improving abnormal lipid metabolism. Here, we explored whether AS leaves affect lipid metabolism in mice fed a high-fat diet.RESULTS: The administration of AS to BALB/c mice fed a high-fat diet significantly decreased plasma triglycerides (TG). CPT activity in the liver of these mice was significantly enhanced by AS treatment.CONCLUSION: These findings indicate that AS leaves have the potential to alleviate increase in plasma TG levels due to high-fat diet intake in mice, possibly by increasing mitochondrial fatty acid-oxidation, especially via CPT activation. Consequently, daily intake of AS leaves could promote beneficial health effects including the prevention of metabolic syndrome. 2015 Society of Chemical Industry.

A. senticosus exhibited a potential for inhibition of histone deacetylase. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Hematol. 2016 Jun ;44(6):466-73. Epub 2016 Mar 15. PMID: 26992299 Abstract Title:  A preliminary study on epigenetic regulation of Acanthopanax senticosus in leukemia cell lines. Abstract:  Conventional chemotherapy for leukemia inevitably causes systemic toxicity. Acanthopanax senticosus, a naturally occurring herb used in traditional Chinese medicine, has been found to be a multipotent bioflavonoid with great potential in the prevention and treatment of malignant diseases. However, the mechanism underlying the action of A. senticosus in epigenetic regulation is poorly understood. In the study described here, we focused on the efficacy of A. senticosus in inducing apoptosis of leukemia cells and a possible mechanism. By evaluating the inhibition ratio and morphologic changes, we found that A. senticosus can inhibit growth and induce apoptosis of human leukemia HL-60 and HL60/ADM cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner. Furthermore,A. senticosus induced Fas ligand (FasL) expression and blocked the cell cycle in S phase. In addition, A. senticosus exhibited a potential for inhibition of histone deacetylase (HADC), which contributes to histone acetylation. It possibly resulted in the promotion of the expression of FasL. It is suggested that A. senticosus could be recognized as a new HDAC inhibitor which was able to reactivate aberrantly silenced genes. We discuss the clinical aspects of using A. senticosus for treatment of leukemia.

The Maoists, Dersims favourite tourist attraction, are hurriedly preparing for the upcoming independence referendum, in which Dersim will vote on whether to secede from itself, owing to the latters failure to defend the regions supposedly long-standing aspiration for freedom from the Turkish Republic which presently occupies it.

Here is the relevant passage from the book, via Vox:

Before I ran for President, I read a book called With Liberty and Dividends for All: How to Save Our Middle Class When Jobs Dont Pay Enough, by Peter Barnes, which explored the idea of creating a new fund that would use revenue from shared national resources to pay a dividend to every citizen, much like how the Alaska Permanent Fund distributes the states oil royalties every year.

Soluble polysaccharides from the root of Acanthopanax senticosus could inhibit proliferation and induce the apoptosis in HepG2 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharmazie. 2016 Apr ;71(4):201-4. PMID: 27209700 Abstract Title:  Effects of Acanthopanax senticosus polysaccharide on the proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle in human HepG2 cells. Abstract:  One water-soluble polysaccharide (ASPS), with four molecular weight distributions of 74, 3.8, 4.5, 2.3 x 10(4) Da, was isolated from the root of Acanthopanax senticosus and the yield was 4.8% (w/w). ASPS was composed of arabinose (51.4%), glucose (24.5%), galactose (10.2%), xylose (5.7) and galacturonic acid (4.9%). Effects of ASPS on the proliferation, apoptosis and Wnt/-catenin signaling pathway were investigated in human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line HepG2 cells. The study showed that ASPS could inhibit the proliferation, increase the apoptosis rate in HepG2 cells; meanwhile, ASPS could increase the proportion of cells in G0/G1 phase, decrease the proportion of cells in S phase and G2/M phase, and elevate the expression level of -catenin, C-myc and Cyclin D1 proteins in HepG2 cells. These results indicate that ASPS has a certain inhibition on the proliferation, can induce the apoptosis and G0/G1 phase arrest in HepG2 cells, and the mechanism may berelated to the inhibition of ASPS on the activation of Wnt/-catenin pathway HepG2 cells.

7 Serious Infections from Contaminated Food and Water

Just Hanging Out (and I mean just hanging out)

Just Hanging Out (and I mean just hanging out)

 

Recently, I watched a few episodes of Naked and Afraid, a series that puts two individuals in extreme environments with few supplies and, for some reason, no clothes. In this program, many of the participants come down with various infections; some of which cause bowel disturbances. Life then becomes, well, even more miserable than walking around for three weeks naked in the jungle.

Epidemics characterized by diarrhea and dehydration have been a part of the human experience since before recorded history. Cholera is an example of one particularly dangerous infection that was epidemic in the past. It and other bacterial diseases, many of which are now rare, may once again become a problem in the uncertain future.

Off the grid, water quality is questionable and may lead to misfortune if not properly purified. Using bad water to cook food in a remote setting can also lead to major problems that manifest as diarrhea, and later, dehydration. When dehydration is not treated, deaths may occur.

Many diseases with diarrhea as the main symptom are caused by poor sanitation. These including the following:

Cholera: Caused by CTX, a toxin produced by the marine and freshwater bacterium Vibrio cholera. Cholera toxins produce a rapid onset of diarrhea and vomiting within a few hours to 2 days of infection. This was a major issue in Haiti after the earthquake there several years ago.

The diarrhea caused by cholera looks like water after rice has been cooked in it. In addition, victims complain of nausea, leg cramps, and other symptoms. The body water loss with cholera is so severe that it is associated with a sixty per cent death rate if untreated. Aggressive efforts to rehydrate the patient, however, drops the death rate to only one pe...

PMID:  J Psychoactive Drugs. 2017 Sep 12:1-9. Epub 2017 Sep 12. PMID: 28895501 Abstract Title:  Nourishing the Spirit: Exploratory Research on Ayahuasca Experiences along the Continuum of Recovery from Eating Disorders. Abstract:  Eating disorders (EDs) are serious health conditions that are among the most difficult to treat. Innovative treatments are needed and modalities from across cultures must be considered. Ayahuasca is a psychoactive plant-based tea originally used by Amazonian indigenous groups. A growing body of research points to its promise in the healing of various mental health issues. This study explored the potential therapeutic value of ayahuasca in the context of EDs, including the perceived impact of the preparatory diet and the ayahuasca purge. Sixteen individuals previously diagnosed with an ED participated in a semi-structured interview relating to their experiences with ceremonial ayahuasca drinking. Interviews were analyzed using thematic analysis. Themes presented relate to the reduction or cessation of ED and mental health symptoms, shifts in body perception, and the importance of a ceremonial setting and after-care. For some, the preparatory diet resulted in familiar patterns of concern; however, none felt triggered by the purge in ayahuasca. Ceremonial ayahuasca drinking shows promise in the healing of EDs and warrants further research.

Woman Finds Field With HUNDREDS Of Abandoned Bunnies And Decides To Save Them All "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Stacey Taylor had never seen so many rabbits in one place. Four years ago, she and her son were driving past a mental health facility in Las Vegas when they spotted about a hundred rabbits hopping on the lawn.

When Taylor and her son explored the rest of the grounds around the facility, they found even more. In fact, Taylor counted close to 1,200 rabbits.

Credit: Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too

We saw all of these bunnies everywhere, Taylor told The Dodo. I had no idea about rabbits. I assumed they were wild or whatever.

But Taylors interest was piqued she started asking around about the rabbits, and she did some research on the mental health facility, which Taylor says is owned by the state of Nevada.

Credit: Bunnies Matter in Vegas Too

The story we get over and over is that someone thought ... [the rabbits] would be a good idea and soothing for the patients, Taylor said. So they put about 40 to 60 unfixed rabbits on the property.

If this storys true, several dozen rabbits quickly turned into several hundred. Taylor also believes that people use the facility as a dumping ground for their unwanted pet rabbits, which has exploded the population even more.

Yet no one seemed to be caring for these domestic rabbits, who are a completely different species from their wild cousins, and often cant survive in the wild. They didnt have access to shelter or water, and their only food was grass and the occasional handout from passersby.

The development of many Latin American nations has been characterized by periods of colonialism followed by independence, utopian idealism, and in many cases, oppression, corruption, and inequality. Alongside these tumultuous histories are strong traditions of resistance and activism. The exhibition Talking to Action: Art, Pedagogy, and Activism in the Americas, part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, looks at the work of artists and collectives who bridge the worlds of art, performance, activism, and organizing in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, and Los Angeles. These include SEFT-1, a quirky, futuristic vehicle that travels along Mexicos system of dilapidated railways, exploring the nation and its ideas about progress along the way; Frente 3 de Fevereiro, a So Paulo-based collective that investigates the military oppression of Afro communities in Medelln, Rio de Janeiro, and Haiti; and a collaboration between artists Eduardo Molinari in Buenos Aires and Sandra de la Loza in Los Angeles based around their archival research on land use in their respective cities.

Cannabidiol may be a safe and useful therapeutic agent for treating Osteoarthritis joint neuropathic pain. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pain. 2017 Sep 1. Epub 2017 Sep 1. PMID: 28885454 Abstract Title:  Attenuation of early phase inflammation by cannabidiol prevents pain and nerve damage in rat osteoarthritis. Abstract:  Osteoarthritis (OA) is a multifactorial joint disease, which includes joint degeneration, intermittent inflammation, and peripheral neuropathy. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a non-euphoria producing constituent of cannabis that has the potential to relieve pain. The aim of this study was to determine if CBD is anti-nociceptive in OA, and whether inhibition of inflammation by CBD could prevent the development of OA pain and joint neuropathy. OA was induced in male Wistar rats (150-175g) by intra-articular injection of sodium monoiodoacetate (MIA; 3mg). On day 14 (end stage OA), joint afferent mechanosensitivity was assessed using in vivo electrophysiology while pain behaviour was measured by von Frey hair algesiometry and dynamic incapacitance. To investigate acute joint inflammation, blood flow and leukocyte trafficking were measured on day 1 post-MIA. Joint nerve myelination was calculated by G-ratio analysis. The therapeutic and prophylactic effects of peripheral CBD (100-300g) were assessed. In end stage OA, CBD dose-dependently decreased joint afferent firing rate, and increased withdrawal threshold and weight bearing (p

HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV: HIVE & US: PRELF) "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Our Top Stock Suggestion
HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV: HIVE)

Dear Reader,

With this, theres no need to keep track of a wallet, a 24-word passcode, or move your cryptocurrency to cold storage so its not hacked.

Many of us, including myself, have eagerly awaited a real play on Bitcoin in the stock market.

Ive been waiting for something that is as easy as logging into my brokerage account and buying a symbol that gives me ownership in the blockchain space.

To fully understand and appreciate our investment into HIVE, you need to know how bitcoins are created and the blockchain itself is supported.

Bitcoin and the blockchain depend on miners to secure transactions and control the creation of new digital currencies.

The computers that mine cryptocurrencies are the fundamental layer of the blockchain.

Its what makes it so powerful.

If someone wanted to hack the Department of Defense or a major corporate giant, they have a single target. But with the blockchain, the network is like the Internet its everywhere, supported by hundreds of thousands of computers around the world.

This also makes the blockchain trustworthy. Its essentially unhackable because it is everywhere and nowhere at the same time.

Because the miners add more computing power to the blockchain and the validation of transactions, they are rewarded with cryptocurrency (Bitcoin, Ether, etc.).

This Will Kill the U.S. Dollar "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This Will Kill the U.S. Dollar

China Strikes at the Heart of the Petrodollar

Dear Reader,

Crude oil, the master commodity, has been priced in dollars for the past 4 decades.

After the collapse of the Bretton Woods agreement, which ended the gold standard in the 1970s, President Nixon made a deal with the Saudis to make the U.S. dollar the currency that was used to buy oil.

The U.S. provided protection to the Saudi kingdom, other Arab states followed the same path, and by 1975, in order to buy the most sought-after commodity in the world, you needed to have U.S. dollars.

This created a scenario where the U.S. could run up deficits with low interest rates, with the rest of the world having no real say in the matter because the petrodollar gave the U.S. an economic hegemony. China and the world needed to buy more dollars in order to fuel their economies with oil.

That is, until now.

China, who is the second-largest oil consumer, has just launched a new futures contract.

Its a yuan-based, gold-backed crude oil contract.

China didnt just try to compete against the U.S. dollar. In order to attract oil providers to this yuan-based oil contract, they made it convertible into gold!

Gold, of course, is the king of money the master currency.

Ive personally never seen such a bullish event take place for gold or a more bearish one for the U.S. dollar.

Long-term, the dollar is dead.

One of the top experts on the U.S. dollar, gold, Bitcoin, and the global economy is my good friend Andy Hoffman.

Hes recently launched a new blog called CryptoGoldCentral.com

Heres a Handy New Site That Converts iOS 11 .heic Photos to JPEG "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

iOS 11 will mean that your iPhone takes its photos in this new format rather than JPEG as we are used to in an effort to save a reported 50% in file size (with no loss of quality).

But using these new .heic files probably wont be so simple to use readily. But, from the creators of Beamr and JPEGMini, HEICtoJPG will allow you to easily convert them.

Its able to process up to 30 files at a time, and using the service is as easy as just drag and dropping.

Once converted, youre given a link to click and that will download the JPEG straight to your computer.

The best part is that the HEIC files that are converted to a JPG will then be optimized by JPEGmini, so the quality of the photo will remain the same but the size of the file will be smaller, Beamr tells PetaPixel.

HEIC files are capable of storing both single images as well as image sequences (such as photo bursts or video clips) using both lossy and lossless compression. Audio and text can also be stored alongside image sequences. The new...

Man Uses Blue Resin to Create Illuminated Map of Intricate Waterways Across the U.S. "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Resin Map DIY

An intracoastal waterway map is an unintended work of art. Its complex network of canals, rivers, and protected waters comprise a vein-like design that offers a unique way to view the United States. Inspired by this Earth art, Instructables user AlexT9 got the idea to create his own DIY map of the waterways that are illuminated with brilliant blue resin.

The multi-part project combined several types of crafts. One of the first steps had AlexT9 illustrating the waterways. This part probably took 8 hours in total, he wrote, and it involved him creating a vector file that the laser cutter followed and etched into plywood. Due to scale, some of the smaller rivers were only fractions of a millimeter wide. He later explained, Lots of planning went into making sure that the cut regions wouldn't cause sections to break off. After experimenting with different techniques, the final product was done in about two hours.

Once the map was etched, it was time to use epoxy resin to bring the waterways to life. AlexT9 applied a coat of vaseline to the board, which later helped release the excess resin from the surface. This step required two separate pours of the material, as the first leaked through the bottom of the map and left some rivers half full.

With the resin dry, the most challenging parts of the DIY map were done. All that was left were the finishing touches which included: covering the map in a clear coat of resin; building a frame; and installing the LED lighting. The result is a unique homage to the feather-like passageways (also called highways for boats) throughout the country.

An intracoastal waterway map is like a work of art with beautiful, feather-like pattern.

Brave Mother Duck Refused To Abandon Her Eggs During Hurricane "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Hurricane Irma's destructive forces were no match for Irma the duck's devotion to her unhatched babies.

Credit: Joy Anne Trent

As the deadly weather system bore down on Florida earlier this month, Plant City resident Joy Anne Trent was thinking about more than just her own family's well-being. Weeks beforehand, one of several Muscovy ducks living nearby had built a nest beneath a tree in her front yard and was dutifully incubating 13 eggs.

"We were so frazzled getting our house ready for the hurricane," Trent told The Dodo. "Initially, the reports had it traveling up the East Coast and late in the game we found out the eye would be passing right over our town. We agonized about what to do with Irma. Do we move the eggs into the house? Try to catch her and put her in the house? Would she reject the eggs or panic? We were a mess."

In a hurry to prepare themselves, Trent and her family had no choice but to let nature take its course. And indeed, Irma was a powerful storm though Irma the duck turned out to be an even more powerful mom.

Credit: Joy Anne Trent

Trent and her family were hunkered down indoors when the storm hit, and they assumed that the mother duck would leave to find a safer spot for herself, too. But as the torrential rains and gusting winds struck with full force, Irma the duck held steadfast for the sake of her offspring.

"She never left her nest not once," Trent said. "We were totally amazed!"

The storm finally passed, and thankfully Irma the duck had survived.

Someone Found This Abandoned Stroller And Couldn't Believe Who Was Inside "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Someone was walking through a park in Scotland when they noticed an abandoned stroller with a blanket over it. Mildly concerned, they decided to go over and investigate the stroller, peered inside and discovered two guinea pigs, all alone and terrified. 

The guinea pigs were nestled in the bed of the stroller, with the hood and netting pulled down, but could still probably have escaped if theyd wanted to, which would have put them in even more danger. 

Credit: Scottish SPCA

It was already nighttime when the guinea pigs were found, and so their rescuer had to wait until the next morning to call the Scottish SPCA to come and pick them up. Stuart Murray, a senior inspector with the Scottish SPCA, took the call and immediately drove out to rescue the poor abandoned guinea pigs. 

This was a very cruel act and the pair could have easily escaped their cage and been injured or even killed by a car, Murray said in a press release. Were very glad they were rescued before they came to harm. 

Credit: Scottish SPCA

Murray brought the guinea pigs to the Scottish SPCAs center in Edinburgh, where staffers decided to name them Bramble and Blackberry. The pair are doing well now, and will be loved and doted on until someone comes along to adopt them. 

They will stay in our care until we find them the loving new home they deserve, Murray said.

Study Confirms Inflammation Causes Heart Disease Not Cholesterol "IndyWatch Feed Health"

heart and stethoscope laying on cardiologist working table

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

If you have been visiting Health Impact News, you may have noticed the notion that arterial inflammation is whats behind heart disease, not cholesterol from saturated fats.

A clinical human trial recently published in The New England Journal of Medicine in August of 2017 may tip a few more in the medical field into accepting the current awareness that inflammatory damage is a major cause of heart and cardiovascular disease, and cholesterol is trying to patch up the damage before the vessel begins to leak or rupture.

Cholesterol is actually a vitally useful waxy compound for many parts of our bodies, especially the brain. Lowering cholesterol is misguided, and usually causes terrible side effects.

Recent Novartis Pharmaceuticals Funded Study

Novartis Pharmaceuticals funded the original study titled Anti-inflammatory Therapy with Canakinumab for Atherosclerotic Disease.

Canakinumab is a drug with the brand name Illaris developed by Novartis to neutralize interleukin-1b. Interleukin-1 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine thats part of our natural immune system. But if its overproduced or becomes chronic, it results in increased inflammation throughout the body.

The current marker for inflammation is hsCRP, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, which is produced by the liver when there is inflammation anywhere in the body. It is detected by testing for CRP with blood samples.

The Center for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention conducted a 48 month double blind placebo trial involving slightly over 10,000 heart patients covering 37 nations who had experienced at least one heart attack, technically know as a myocardial infarction, among whom all had high hsCRP readings.

The results were favorable for Novarti...

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and World Mercury Project Issue Report Regarding New Evidence of Ongoing Corruption and Scientific Misconduct at CDC

Kennedy hopes new evidence and a fresh look at criminal misconduct will result in law enforcement action, rigorous and transparent vaccine safety science, and safer vaccines.

by World Mercury Project

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, September 18, 2017
Contact: Lyn Redwood, 202-810-1826,

Washington, DC In a new report released today, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and his team outlined various criminal acts on the part of employees and consultants for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) whose questionable ethics and scientific fraud have resulted in untrustworthy vaccine safety science.

Among other information, Kennedy has found additional evidence of criminal activity by the CDC consultant, Poul Thorsen, the author and principal coordinator of multiple CDC studies exonerating the mercury-based preservative thimerosal in the development of autism.

The new evidence, recently uncovered by the World Mercury Project, shows that Thorsen and his collaborators did not obtain permission from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) to conduct their research, which was published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2002 and Pediatrics in 2003.

Equinox and New Moon Ritual September 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

September brings us the Virgo New Moon on the 19th and the Equinox on the 22nd, making it the perfect time to check in with yourself and the energy that surrounds your life.

Life is always a dance between the highs and the lows, but the more you can keep your inner world centered, the easier and more peaceful your life will feel.

One of the main ways to find peace from within is learning to let things go. Many of us carry around hurts, pains and traumas for far too long and this can take a toll on our body, mind and soul.

Every so often, when strong cosmic forces come together like a New Moon and an Equinox, we can use this energy to make subtle or strong shifts in our lives.

In order to step into this energy and to really feel the loving and guiding support from the cosmos, we have to learn to let go and release all that is weighing us down. We have to let go of outdated thoughts, feelings and pains and surrender to the present.

With this cosmic energy, it is the perfect time to release and let go, and it seems that Mother Earth is also doing the same.

In the Northern Hemisphere the Equinox symbolises the start of Autumn, a time where all of nature has to surrender and allow the dead leaves to drop. This important cycle of death is necessary in order to recharge and make way for the new.

In the Southern Hemisphere the Equinox symbolises the start of Spring, where all of nature has to surrender in order to bloom. For the buds to open they have to let go and trust in the timing.They  have to allow themselves to be birthed open into the world.

No matter where you live, there is a strong energetic theme this September of letting go and relieving yourself of any baggage so you can get back in balance.

This ritual is designed to help you do just that while also nurturing and nourishing your mind, body and soul.

Equinox and New Moon Ritual 

You will need:

  • Candle
  • Pen and Paper
  • Smudging tool of your choice (sage, incense or palo santo)

Bill Gates Funding MIT Development of Micro Implants to Automatically Give Babies Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Jay Syrmopoulos

A new discovery could revolutionize the way childhood vaccines are administered, as engineers at MIT have invented a way for multiple doses of a vaccine or drug to be given over an extended period of time with only one injection.

The process involves the invention of a new 3-D fabrication method that can generate a novel type of drug-carrying particle that could allow multiple doses of a drug or vaccine to be delivered over an extended period of time, according to MIT News.

This novel fabrication technique, called SEAL (Stamped Assembly of Polymer Layers), creates three-dimensional microparticles that resemble tiny coffee cups that can be filled with vaccines or drugs, which are sealed with a lid. The cups, made of a FDA-approved biocompatible polymer, can be designed to degrade at specific times, spilling out the contents.

We are very excited about this work because, for the first time, we can create a library of tiny, encased vaccine particles, each programmed to release at a precise, predictable time, so that people could potentially receive a single injection that, in effect, would have multiple boosters already built into it. This could have a significant impact on patients everywhere, especially in the developing world where patient compliance is particularly poor, Robert Langer, a noted chemical and biological at the David H. Koch Institute at MIT, said in a statement.

The SEAL technique could provide a new platform that can create nearly any tiny, fillable object with nearly any material, which could provide unprecedented opportunities in manufacturing in medicine and other areas, Langer added.

Interior Action on Arctic Refuge is a Human Rights Violation "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

FAIRBANKS  The Washington Post has reported that the Trump administration is secretly taking the first steps towards opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling. The Post reports that the Department of the Interior (DOI) directed the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) in a memorandum to immediately revise regulations governing oil and gas exploration in the 1.5 million acre Coastal Plain of the Arctic Refuge.

Guest post: Why the 1.5C warming limit is not yet a geophysical impossibility "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Dr Richard Millar is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Oxford Martin Net Zero Carbon Investment Initiative at the University of Oxford.

The Paris Agreement set a long-term goal of limiting global warming to well-below 2C above pre-industrial levels and to pursue efforts to restrict it to 1.5C.

A key question for the upcoming rounds of the international climate negotiations, particularly when countries review their climate commitments next year, is exactly how fast would we have to cut emissions to reach these goals?

In a new paper, published in Nature Geoscience, we provide updated estimates of the remaining carbon budget for 1.5C. This is the total amount of CO2 emissions that we can still emit whilst limiting global average warming to 1.5C.

Our estimates suggest that we would have a remaining carbon budget equivalent to around 20 years at current emissions rates for a 2-in-3 chance of restricting end-of-century warming to below 1.5C.

This suggests that we have a little more breathing space than previously thought to achieve the 1.5C limit. However, although 1.5C is not yet a geophysical impossibility, it remains a very difficult policy challenge.

Earth system models and 1.5C

The single most important factor in the extent of future global warming is our cumulative emissions of CO2, which due to the very long timescales of the natural carbon cycle creates warming that persists for thousands of years.

This means scientists and policymakers focus on the total stock of CO2 that we put into the atmosphere, rather than the flow of CO2 in any particular year.

Our paper looks at different ways of estimating the total amount of CO2 we can emit into the atmosphere and sti...

As Thousands Left Homeless from Hurricanes, Trump Sends $75 Million MORE to Israel "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As Thousands Left Homeless from Hurricanes, Trump Sends $75 Million MORE to Israel

As many Americans struggle to get back on their feet after their homes were destroyed by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, the United States government has insisted that the only way to raise money for relief efforts is to increase the national debtwhile setting aside another $75 million in aid for Israel.

Just one year ago, the Obama Administration signed the largest military aid deal in U.S. history, promising Israel $38 Billion over the next 10 years. However, while the deal stated that Israel was expected to return any money that was more than the original amount, the Trump Administration is breaking the rules.

According to a report from the Jerusalem Post, while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was against giving an additional $75 million to Israel, a senior State Department official insisted that, The administration is committed to ensuring that Israel receives the assistance that has been appropriated by Congress, and that Trump will work to ensure the $75 million in additional aid is delivered.

While Congress had no problem giving Israel another $75 million in military aid, it did so by once again turning a blind eye to the long list of human rights abuses carried out by the Israeli militaryand funded by the United States. Israel has occupied Palestine since 1967, and in those 50 years, it has been accused of numerous categories of human rights violations, according to a report from Human Rights Watch:

At least five categories of major violations of international human rights law and humanitarian law characterize the occupation: unlawful killings; forced displacement; abusive detention; the closure of the Gaza Strip and other unjustified restrictions on movement; and the development of settlements, along with the accompanying discriminatory policies that disadvantage Palestinians.

Reporter Covering Hurricane Irma Sees Stranded Dogs Needing Her Help "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

On the day after Hurricane Irma hit Florida, WFLA reporter Melissa Marino and her videographer Jamie Cook were out in Polk County, an area in the central part of the state that was badly affected by the storm. 

They'd gotten a little lost while driving around, which turned out to be fortuitous. By going down an unexpected road, they happened to hear some dogs crying. The desperate sound led them to five dogs who'd been left out through Irma.

Four dogs were in flooded kennels; a fifth was trapped on top of a picnic table. Marino and Cook set out to rescue them.

"All the wrong turns led to the right place," Marino told The Dodo. "We honestly believe it was fate."

Marino spoke with neighbors who told her the dogs' owners had evacuated before the storm. They said the dogs had been outside without food, water or shelter through it all. 

Fire ants, spiders and snakes added extra danger to both the dogs and rescuers and on top of that, more rain was predicted in the coming day.

The neighbors had fed the dogs and tried to remove them but, they told Marino, had been unable to do so safely.

Marino reached out to city officials, and an animal control officer came to the scene. Based on an initial assessment, however, the officer determined the dogs were not in imminent danger and declined to take them away. ...

How I Shot Cliff Divers with a Total Solar Eclipse "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

This is a post about photography plus trigonometry. I remember half joking with my math teachers in high school, asking why do we need to learn this? Im never going to use it in life. Fast forward to 4 months ago when Red Bull Media House calls and wants to shoot a cliff diver eclipse photo.

After doing some research, I discovered that the eclipse would be in totality at a very high point in the sky, and it would be very difficult to line up with the divers given the long focal length needed. We had to figure out the correct angle, height, and distance. Luckily I retained some of that math knowledge (and also had some help) and was able to pinpoint every position, height, and angle needed for our shot list.

Preparation!

We prepared for this shoot for four months. With so many moving parts and elements that need to perfectly align, preparation was definitely the key to success. We needed the perfect location with the right amount of distance of open space and it had to be in the path of totality. We also needed a spot for the divers to dive and to make sure the divers were high enough in the air to align perfectly with the sun.

After looking all over the country at different locations, we choose a farm in McMinnville, Oregon, with a large wide open field. There was a dive tank (normally used in traveling carnivals and other performances) erected in the middle of the open space, and we had it filled with 30,000 gallons of water (which was later used to water the very dry and dusty field.)

For the days leading up to the shoot, we used a range finder to map out shooting positions and tested focal lengths, dive times, and lighting.

Hanging and Controlling Lights

Im not too keen on heights and although I worked in a theater in college and I would hang lights in catwalks about 20-30 feet up, I couldnt imagine myself climbing and hoisting lights up an 85-foot tall tower. Just standing under it looking up gave me chills. So we enlisted the help of one of the amazing dive tank crew members Clark to help with rigging and hanging each one of the lights. We used Kupo Grip Super Viser Clamps to mount the lights to a pole that stuck out 2 feet so the light could be angled correctly....

Homeless iPhone (Part 2) "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Pause. Rewind. Deep dive in the design process.

Two weeks ago I posted about the possibility of an iPhone that has no Home button at all.

With iOS 11 on an iPad you enjoy a whole new app switcher. As a little design challenge, I study how this UI could work on the imminent iPhone 8, and whether it could cater for the absence of Home button.

Today Ive paused the exploration, and Im walking you through the design process. Well review my sketches in detail, see what they reveal about the train of thought (ouch!), and look at a couple of prototype variants that youll be able to download and try.

Being process-oriented, not product-driven, is the most important and difficult skill for a designer to develop.
Matthew Frederick

Sketches and prototypes below are provided as is, they havent been modified at all for the sake of this article. I include raw scans of my large sketch boards, so the post is probably best viewed on desktop or tablet.

Sketching

I always keep my sketches and notes. Theyre useful to review in slow motion what has happened in the mind, assess the reasoning, and have a fresh look at germinating ideas that were forgotten on the road side.

For this project I used two A3 sheets. Lets comment the key screens:

1. Trying to force-fit the iPad design. In that first attempt, everything is on a single horizontal scroll view. And theres a Home button! False start.
2. Trying again. But stopping fast since clearly, its not going to work. My proportions are completely unrealistic. Lack of discipline.
3. A more realistic ratio. I finally acknowledge its a very long phone Im dealing with (6/13 ratio). Im going to need my imagination. The whole view now scrolls vertically, with apps on 2 columns. An accident happens here: my focus has now shifted to the iPhones Control Centre (that Im probably examining on my iOS 11 phone, as a model for the sketch). Im misled and add the little chevron at the top, meaning swipe down to close.

John McAfee accidentally just revealed why Bitcoin is a total fraud: Behold the logic of artificial work "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

(Natural News) In a recent CNBC interview thats being widely touted by self-deluded Bitcoin promoters as some kind of smack down of JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Bitcoin advocate John McAfee accidentally admitted why Bitcoin is a total fraud thats doomed to fail.

In answering Jamie Dimons recent declaration that Bitcoin is a fraud, McAfee replied: (see the video at The Daily Sheeple)

However, sir you called Bitcoin a fraud. Im a Bitcoin miner. We create Bitcoins. It costs over one thousand dollars per coin to create a Bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud? Because [the dollar] costs whatever the paper costs, but it costs me and other miners over a thousand dollars per coin its called proof of work.

Behold the logic of artificial work: How John McAfee just embraced Paul Krugmans ditch digging fable

The problem with John McAfees explanation, of course, is that it admits Bitcoins can only be created through the practice of computational wheel spinning operations where the difficulty and duration of such wheel spinning is artificially made needlessly complex by the Bitcoin algorithm. In a world where Bitcoins used to be created for less than one pennys worth of computational work, a single Bitcoin now requires over US$1,000 worth of artificial work to be achieved. A rational person must ask McAfee, Why did Bitcoins used to cost just a penny to create, and now they cost a thousand dollars? The 100,000 X increase in complexity for generating a Bitcoin, it turns out, is an artificial work algorithm known as computational difficulty in mining.

This admission should be shocking to all Bitcoin holders for the simple reason that if Bitcoin drops below $1,000, mining now becomes unprofitable, rendering a very large part of the entire Bitcoin mining infrastructure instantly obsolete. The only thing keeping Bitcoin mining profitable right now is the bubble pricing of Bitcoin itself, and because all bubbles eventually burst, Bitcoin mining will sooner or later reach a point where its not worth the investment of hardware, electricity and time. (Theres also the 21 million coin limit thats rapidly approaching, by the way, which will spell the end of Bitcoin mining as it is conducted today.)

Furthermore, the artificial work aspect of Bitcoin mining and its artificial computational complexity is the digital equivalent of paying people to dig ditches and fill them in again while claiming the activity boosts economic output. This idea, believe it or not, is the classic economic paradox routinely p...

JavaScript from callbacks to async/await "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Thomas Kelley

JavaScript is synchronous. This means that it will execute your code block by order (after hoisting*). That is, unless you use a timer or request which are asynchronous.

Asynchronous requests will wait for a timer to finish or a request to respond while the rest of the code executes. Thenwhen the time is righta callback will spring these asynchronous requests into action.

For example, this is synchronous code:

console.log('1')
console.log('2')
console.log('3')

This code will reliably log 1 2 3".

On the other hand:

console.log('1')
setTimeout(function afterTwoSeconds() {
console.log('2')
}, 2000)
console.log('3')

This will actually log 1 3 2, since the 2 is on a setTimeout which will only execute, by this example, after two seconds. Your application does not hang waiting for the two seconds to finish, it instead keeps executing the rest of the code and when the timeout is finished it returns to afterTwoSeconds.

Why is this useful? or How do I get my async code to become sync? may be some of the questions you may be asking and hopefully I can show it to you.

*Hoisting is where before code execution, var and function declarations are hoisted to the top of their scope. You can read more in detail about hoisting here.

The problem

Let us say our objective is to search for a github user and get all the repositories of that user, the thing is we dont know the exact name of the user so we have to list all the users with similar name and their respective repositories.

Doesnt need to super fancy, something like this

So much style, wow! You can find this bootstrap here

For the examples the request code will be done with XHR (XMLHttpRequest) but you can replace it with jQuery $.ajax or the more recent native approach called fetch, both will give you the promises approach out of the gate. It will be slightly changed depending on the approach but as a starter:

// url argument can be something like 'https://api.github.com/users/daspinola/repos'
function request(url) {
const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
xhr.timeout = 2000;
xhr.onreadystatechange = function(e...

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: Owning the Weather for Military Use "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Introductory Note

Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the worlds weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined.

During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which was initially developed in the 1990s under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), was an appendage of the St...

Why Docker makes sense for startups "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Mandatory container metaphor is mandatory. Credit: chuttersnap

Docker is becoming the standard to develop and run containerized applications.

Long ago, this piece of technology might have made sense to system administrator and PaaS (Platform as a Service) providers. But weve been hearing rather little from startups about their Docker adoption. Particularly the 1to-10-employee-strong ones. This is an impression that somewhat correlates with Datadog HQs recent research:

guess this story could have been more timely written in 2015.

In case youre unsure if its worth the trouble, we thought wed reveal how much adopting a container-friendly architecture has helped our startup. And why you might take Docker for a spin if you havent yet.

The Development Experience

If you work in a small two pizza startup, theres a high chance people in your team are a multidisciplinary lot. Once projects are no longer siloed, youll receive a warm welcome into development environment hell.

Consider a simple scenario of a front-end engineer needing a not-yet-in-production API from a back-end. You could overcome this by making do with mocked data, or setting up staging environments. These are great. But nothing beats the agility of running integrations against the back-end code itself.

Tools like docker-compose did wonders for us. All a newcomer has to do is install a single thing. It is a a large thing. One invocation of docker-compose will have Docker setup everything for you so you can jump straight back into coding.

The declarative nature of these tools provides a simple description of how runtime components talk to each other. This makes reasoning about your top-level architecture all the easier.

As well as being useful in development, Docker also brought us simplicity when packaging our code for production. This is because it makes development and production environments all the more symmetric. That is a point made by 12factor...

Phytochemical content and pharma-nutrition study on Eleutherococcus senticosus fruits intractum. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2016 ;2016:9270691. Epub 2016 Oct 24. PMID: 27843534 Abstract Title:  Phytochemical Content and Pharma-Nutrition Study on Eleutherococcus senticosus Fruits Intractum. Abstract:  In the past two decades public interest in herbal products has increased significantly in Europe, especially in the plant-based products from non-European traditions. Eleutherococcus senticosus has been used for the treatment of inflammatory diseases, anemia, and rheumatoid arthritis. The Eleutherococcus senticosus fruits intractum was examined for the content of phenolic acids (LC-ESI-MS/MS), minerals (AAS), TPC, and TFC (spectrophotometric assay). The antioxidant activity was determined using free radical scavenging assay and TLC-DB-DPPH() dot-blot test. An anti-Hyal activity was evaluated by the spectrophotometric assay method. Cytotoxicity towards HL-60, HL-60/MX1, HL-60/MX2, CEM/C1, and CCRF/CEM leukemic cell lines was done using trypan blue test. Among eight phenolic acids, trans-caffeic acid was found in the largest amount (41.2mg/gDE). The intractum presented a high amount of macroelements (Ca, Mg, K; 1750, 1300, and 21000mg/kg) and microelements (Fe, Mn; 32.7, 54.3mg/kg), respectively. The content of TPC and TFC was 130 and 92mg/g DE, respectively. The intractum showed anti-Hyal activity (2.16-60%) andan antioxidant capacity (EC50; 52g/mL). The intractum most strongly inhibited the growth of HL-60, HL-60/MX1, and CCRF/CEM. A better understanding of the intractum health benefits is important in order to increase its utility and enrich dietary sources of health promoting compounds.

Bitcoin Exchange bitFlyer Hopes to Win Big With the Japanese Bankers Association "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

bitFlyer.jpg

While China tightens its grip on its cryptocurrency community, Japan is openly embracing cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, legalizing bitcoin, and encouraging and funding blockchain research.

Even Japans banks are onboard, working collaboratively to develop a blockchain platform specifically for the financial sector. With its 120 member banks, the Japanese Bankers Association (JBA) is creating a Collaborative Blockchain Platform and is actively looking for a company to supply its blockchain technology on an ongoing basis.

Experimenting with the Collaborative Blockchain Platform, the JBA will initially determine which financial services best lend themselves to the new platform, likely including settlement/transfer services, know-your-customer (KYC) systems and financial infrastructure such as their Zengin System and Densai Net System.

Japanese bitcoin exchange bitFlyer is stepping up to the plate to take on tech giants including Fujitsu, Hitachi and NTT Data to be the supplier of the blockchain platform that will be used by Japans banks.

Although it is one of the largest cryptocurrency and blockchain startups in Japan, the Tokyo-based bitFlyer has its work cut out for it if it wants to upset these three corporate heavyweights and win the right to supply the bankers with a blockchain platform using its miyabi technology.

The companys COO Bartek Ringwelski told Bitcoin Magazine:

bitFlyer is the only startup in the event, and we have only raised $36mm since 2014, but we have deep expertise in blockchain technology through our virtual currency exchange (the largest in the world by volume, including margin trading) and our miyabi product.

By way of comparison, Hitachi posted $83 billion in revenue in 2016, Fujitsu posted $47 billion on 2015 and NTT Data posted $15 billion in 2016.

Acknowledging a sea change in Japans attitude to cryptocurrency, Ringwelski noted that Japan is actively encouraging and supporting both cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology:

Japan is emerging as a leader in blockchain adoption. Japanese consumers are embracing virtual currencies, regulators are proactive, and banks are recognizing the power that blockchain, and specifically miyabi, can bring to the financial infrastructure.

Heartwarming Full-Page Ad From New Orleans to Houston Shares Hope and Offers Kindness "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Hurricane Harvey

In the wake of natural disasters, we're inspired to see that humanitydespite its differencescomes together to work towards one common goal: helping those in need. In 2005, the devastation of Hurricane Katrina saw people from around the country pitching in to aid disaster relief efforts in New Orleans. Houston played a big part in this; the two cities are about 350 miles apart, and during that time, the Texas metropolis opened its doors to Louisiana evacueesincluding its school system and the Astrodome stadium, which transformed into a giant shelter.

Now, 12 years later, Houston is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. As people unite to help its residents, New Orleans hasnt forgotten about the compassion that the city showed back then. In the September 10th issue of the Houston Chronicle, New Orleans offers a message of hope and that they intend to repay their kindness. Their full-page ad, posted on Twitter by Chronicle editor Matt Schwartz, is addressed To our friends in Texas, and reads as follows:

To our friends in Texas,

Twelve years ago, you took in hundreds of thousands of us. You opened your homes, closets, and kitchens. You found schools for our kids and jobs to tide us over. Some of us are still there. And when the rest of the world told us not to rebuild, you told us not to listen. Keep our city and traditions alive.

Now, no two storms are the same. Comparing rising waters is a waste of energy when you need it most. But know this in our darkest hour, we found peace and a scorching, bright light of hope with our friends in Texas. And we hope you'll find the same in us.

Our doors are open. Our clothes come in every size. There's hot food on the stove, and our cabinets are well-stocked. We promise to always share what we have.

Soon, home will feel like home again, even if it seems like a lifetime away. We'll be battling for football recruits under the Friday night lights. You'll tell us to stop trying to barbeque. We'll tell you to lay off your crawfish boil and come have the real thing. But for as long as you need, we're here to help.

DIY Winter Water Heaters For Chicken Coop "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

If youre a chicken farmer, you may already know that chickens actually thrive in colder temperatures, as theyre designed with a unique ability. They are excellent at regulating their body temperatures way better than humans actually.

DIY Winter Water Heaters

However, with the winter upon us, it would be nice to help our little feathered friends as much as we can. The thing is that during the winter, your chickens require water in order to generate body heat, so its still crucial that they receive an adequate supply of fresh, clean, unfrozen water. Going without water for even a couple of hours can decrease egg production for up to 2 days.

DIY Winter Water Heaters For Chicken Coop

Keep Your Chickens Hydrated During Winter

Dehydration sets in quickly with chickens, especially in extremely cold environments. Even though your hens will drink significantly less water during the winter about 3 times less on average than in the summer its critical that you keep your girls properly hydrated during the winter.

Also, depending on where you live, wintertime survival for your chickens can be anything from a walk in the park and a day of busting bricks, if you know what I mean.

Another fact is that chickens are basically 65 percent water and shuffling back and forth to the chicken coop 3 or 4 times a day carrying heavy buckets of water in freezing cold and/or heavy snow is pretty far from my idea of having quality time during the winter months.

The problem with harsh winters and chicken coops is that water tends to freeze rather quickly in sub-freezing temps. Since your chickens need water on a daily basis, youll have to find a way to provide it to them without breaking your back in the process.

Water is involved in all aspects of poultry metabolism, which essentially means that if they dont get enough of it, your girls will not be able to regulate their body temperature properly among other things (food digestion, body waste management etc).

Also, water is very important in the production of eggs, as an egg is made roughly from 74 percent water. If your girls dont have access to enough clean/fresh water, you can kiss your egg...

Harnessing the Power of Auto-Stacking in Lightroom "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Auto-stacking in Lightroom can quickly organize a huge set of images in to more manageable stacks, which are small groups of images grouped according to their capture time. This 6-minute video from photographer Anthony Morganti shows how you can use the feature to speed up your workflow.

Auto-stacking is especially useful when you are taking burst images, like Morganti in his wildlife photography example. Normally this will result in a huge grid or filmstrip of near-identical images, which is difficult to deal with. By stacking them, you can reduce the size of the grid and quickly see which images were shot as a burst.

To enable the feature, right-click on any image in your film strip or grid and select Stacking>Auto-Stack by Capture Time.

You will get a dialog that lets you choose the time between stacks. The default shown in the above image is set to 01:00, which means that any image that was taken within a 1-minute period will be stacked.

At first, you wont see anything change. To collapse the stacks and clean up your film strip, youll need to again right click an image and this time select Stacking>Collapse All Stacks. Your film strip will instantly shrink and you will see numbers in the corner of each image indicating how many images are in the stack.

Another great use of this feature is for image bracketing, where you take a series of images within a short period in order to later combine them for an HDR. By setting the capture time period to something shorter, you can auto...

The way we consume media content has been on a continual overhaul for the past two decades. Every aspect of media distribution has become more streamlined from the razor-thin devices we use to consume media to the manner in which we purchase and store our coveted content. Books, music and movies have all seen their physical bodies and storage locations dissolve, to be replaced with on-demand downloads and digital copies.

The digital content revolution has done a lot for increasing access and visibility for artists and authors, but the current publishing giants have failed to adequately adjust to the times in a few crucial areas. While it's true that platforms such as YouTube and Medium have granted publishing access to the greater public and eliminated gatekeeping middlemen like talent agents and PR people, the current digital content sharing platforms have built their empires on the skeletons of the publishing giants templates that existed before and, unfortunately, have continued operating in ways that fundamentally undermine the artistic control and profits of their contributors.   

YouTube, for example, recently announced they will not allow users to earn any money until they reach 10 thousand views. Medium was recently very candid about the moral dilemmas and growing pains they have faced while trying to balance the selling of advertising space as well as respecting their contributing authors and readership. And it's no secret that Amazon and iTunes take a chunk out of authors and artists earnings, with iTunes currently pocketing 30 percent of its artists profits and Amazon taking a hefty 3075 percent.

Though its easy to be critical, I am more interested in looking for a viable alternative to disrupt the existing system. This will require harnessing the decentralizing nature of emerging blockchain content distribution technologies. Heres why:

Blockchain could be the solution to making micropayments a reality.

As media consumption has gone digital, a cost-effective way to charge per article or per song has been a limiting factor. Many platforms and publications hav...

Synchronistic Images Captured in Soviet Era Swimming Pools by Photographer Maria Svarbova "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Photographer Maria Svarbova is fascinated by the sterile, geometric aesthetic of old swimming pools, especially those built during the Socialist Era in her native country of Slovakia. Each scene she photographs is highly controlled, from the subjects of her works to the bright colors and dramatic shadows that compose each shot.

The figures are mid-movement, but there is no joyful playfulness to them, says Sarbovas artist statement about the project. Frozen in the composition, the swimmers are as smooth and cold as the pools tilesDespite the retro setting, the pictures somehow evoke a futuristic feeling as well, as if they were taken somewhere completely alien.

The series, In the Swimming Pool, began in 2014 and is her largest to date. Recently she published a book on the project through The New Heroes and Pioneers aptly titled The Swimming Pool Book which you can pre-order on Amazon. To see more of her photographs centered around Eastern European pools, head to her Instagram or Behance. (via Visual Fodder)

Do You Notice That it is All About ICOs Lately "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The craze for ICOs (Initial Coin Offerings) seems to be going on and instead of things starting to calm down things are actually getting more and more intense, regardless of the news that some countries may be banning them or regulating them. Nowadays all we pretty much see in our sidebar with ads, provided mostly by Google, is pretty much all about ICOs and nothing more. We are also being contacted on a daily basis by a lot of people that are willing to advertise their upcoming or already running ICO or just do a coverage. We are not big fans of Initial Coin Offerings ourselves and writing about them or even directly advertising kind of means that we either approve or endorse them or at least this is what most people will think even if that is not our intention. We have been covering some ICOs in the past, just a few actually, as giving investment advice for ICOs especially has never been the idea or goal of this website. If we see a good idea and want to help promote the project and actually use the service or product that will or is being made directly as a result of an ICO we are going to share that information anyway. In such cases we are even investing something in that particular ICO ourselves, this is how much we believe in the idea. Even then however you should not threat that as an investment advice, you should still do your own research as we may not always be right on the spot

With all of the above said our team does not track any or all ICOs that are currently appearing, starting or ending, they are quite a lot actually and if you do not specialize on that topic alone it will be hard to cover it all. We are not investors or traders and we do not give investment or trading advice, even if we do both of these as well from time to time. We are not against ICOs as a concept, in fact we have recently taken a part of such a project ourselves Cryptum, a project that is developing a crypto mining board game among other things, though our interest was caught by that particular side of the project. It is not an ICO that promises great things such as decentralizing the board game business or putting board games on a blockc...

Blockchain Technology Plays a Critical Role in U.S. and International Open Government Initiatives "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

tech open door.jpg

On September 8, the U.S. governments General Services Administration (GSA)s program Emerging Citizen Technology hosted a workshop titled Emerging Technology and Open Data for a More Open Government. The participants in the workshop were directed to draft proposals that specifically use Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain technology and open data.

Open data and emerging technologies including artificial intelligence and distributed ledgers, such as blockchain hold vast potential to transform public services held back by bureaucracy and outdated IT systems, said Emerging Citizen Technology program manager Justin Herman. We are opening the doors to bold, fresh ideas for government accountability, transparency and citizen participation by working with U.S. businesses, civil society groups and others to shape national goals for emerging technologies and open data in public services.

At the workshop, several government agencies have indicated a strong government backing behind the development of blockchain technology. In particular, a representative of the White House Office of Management and Budget (OMB) stated that the Trump administration was serious about and committed to this technology, and would not be deterred.

The initiative is related to the fourth National Action Plan (NAP 4), which the U.S. government is releasing this year in the the framework of the multinational Open Government Partnership (OGP) and its Open Government Declaration. It is aimed at empowering citizens and advancing the ideals of an open and participatory government.

The September 8 workshop follows the first U.S. Federal Blockchain Forum, organized by the Emerging Citizen Technology program on July 18 to discuss blockchain use cases, limitations and solutions. Financial management, procurement, IT asset and supply chain management, smart contracts, patents, trademarks, copyrights, royalties, government-issued credentials, federal personnel workforce data, appropriated funds, federal assistance, and foreign aid de...

In Secret Woods Pendants, Turtles Carry the World on Their Backs "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Vancouver-based jewelers Secret Wood are known for their fusion of wood and resin to create magical rings. Their latest creation features more enchanting worlds, this time on the back of a turtle.

The recently released World Turtle pendant has a unique feature: it is customizable and interchangeable. Switch between different enchanting worlds to personalize your World Turtle pendant. From waterfalls to winter scenes, coral reefs to blossoms, intricate worlds are artfully created inside the turtles geometric shell. The design allows light to shine through, refracting off the shells many facets.

These pendants take inspiration from Hindu, Chinese and Indigenous mythologies which tell of the world being found on the back of a turtle. The turtle seemed appropriate for this grand role due to its qualities: perseverance, longevity, and determination.

We were completely inspired by these mythologies and knew we had to use them in our creations, explains Secret Wood founder, Roman Wood. There are so many beautiful landscapes on this Earth, the creative possibilities are endless.

Much like Secret Woods rings, every piece is handmade and unique, ensuring a unique wearable experience. More turtle shell designs will be released in the future.

Why Words Can Cut Your Soul and Are More Powerful Than Swords "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

For millennia, tyrannical governments controlled by the Elite or Dark Magicians have used swords and other physical weapons to enslave people. What the Dark Magicians have known for a long time is that physical weapons (e.g., swords and guns) are not the best tools to use for controlling and enslaving people. The reason is that when their agents use physical weapons to enslave people, it makes it hard for them to hide the fact that they are forcing people to be slaves.

Today, the Dark Magicians have nearly perfected their system of slavery. Through trial and error, the Dark Magicians have discovered that the best form of slavery is stealth slavery. In the past, the Dark Magicians found out that using swords and physical weapons to force people to work for them without pay was not very efficient. Instead of forcing people to work for them without pay, the Dark Magicians discovered that when they domesticated people to think that they are free and tricked them to work for paper money, they can use the power of words written on contracts to bind people to the terms and conditions of those contracts. This allows them to enslave people without their knowledge.

The reason that stealth slavery is the best form of slavery is because it tricks people to think that they are sovereign. This allows the Dark Magicians to control the people of the world with little resistance. Another reason that stealth slavery is the best form of slavery is becaus...

Fundamental And Constitutional Rights Negated In The Realm of Totalitarian Corporatocracy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Why are U.S. citizens being subjected to inhuman violations of their fundamental and Constitutional rights by vested corporate interests, and no one in Congress, or in the practice of law or the judicial system, is doing anything to correct and to restore basic unalienable human fundamental rights?

Two specific areas of modern commerce present overwhelming examples of gross human rights violations:

  1. The pharmaceutical industry with its consensus vaccine science, which inaccurately promotes and provides neurotoxic vaccines as safe and effective that mandatorily must be inoculated into infants within 24 hours of birth and at 2, 4 and 6 months of age when their immune systems and blood brain barriers are not fully developed, thereby predisposing unknown adverse health risks for which numerous innocent children will be sacrificed for the greater good, i.e., community immunity, with ensuing lifelong harmsor possibly even deathas evidenced by the CDCs VAERS reporting system and HRSA Vaccine VICP Claims Adjudications [1]; and
  2. The microwave industry and its acolyte subsidiary-like industries, e.g., public utilities, which utilize microwaves to provide electric, natural gas and water utilities metering services despite the plethora of scientific documentation regarding EMF/RF/ELF non-thermal radiation waves impairing and damaging DNA, cellular mitochondria and central nervous systems thereby subjecting customers/consume...

Medieval males were treated for infertility using ground up pig testicals "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A recent study of medical and religious texts suggests that men were diagnosed with infertility as far back as Medieval times, and indeed may be held responsible for the inability to have children. Treatment regimes, at times bizarre and unpalatable, included eating ground up pig testicles. New Study Shows that Men Were Blamed for Infertility too For medieval men, success meant succession. Heredity was at the center of law and order, from the king down through the ranks of society. As a result, the moment children reached marriageable age everyone's focus was on their fertility. Even though it is believed that women in medieval England were blamed for childlessness most of the time, a new analysis of popular medical and religious books by the University of Exeter shows that from the 13th century, many of these medical texts acknowledged the possibility of male infertility, including sterility and "unsuitable seed" as Phys Org reports.

Baltimore Residents Urged to Shelter In Place After Large Acid Spill "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Residents living within one mile of an acid spill at a Baltimore plant are being urged to stay indoors and shelter in place until further notice.
Fire department spokesman Chief Roman Clark said the spill occurred around 10:45 a.m. Monday at the Solvay Industries plant in South Baltimore when crews were transferring chlorosulfonic acid from a tanker to a trailer.
Clark said the spill created a vapor cloud that has since dissipated. There were no reported injuries, and only a small part of the plant was evacuated; all other employees were told to shelter in place.

A. senticosus has potential to be developed as an effective anticancer treatment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Am J Chin Med. 2016 ;44(8):1543-1558. Epub 2016 Nov 16. PMID: 27852123 Abstract Title:  Acanthopanax senticosus: Photochemistry and Anticancer Potential. Abstract:  Acanthopanax senticosus (previously classified as Eleutherococcus senticosus), commonly known as Ciwujia or Siberian Ginseng, is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), widely used for its high medicinal value, such as antifatigue, anti-inflammation, antistress, anti-ulcer and cardiovascular functions, in China, Korea, Japan and Russia. In the past decades, researchers worldwide have conducted systematic investigations on this herb, from chemistry to pharmacology, and a large number of chemical components have been characterized for their significant pharmacological effects. However, reports about the anticancer effects of this plant had been rare until recently, when considerable pharmacological experiments both in vitro and in vivo were conducted to study the anticancer effects of this herb. A. senticosus has been found to have inhibitory effects on malignant tumors, such as those in the lung and liver, suggesting that A. senticosus has potential to be developed as an effective anticancer drug. This paper reviews recent findings on the pharmacological properties of A. senticosus, with a focus on its anticancer effects.

David Lynch Gives Unconventional Advice to Graduates in an Unusual Commencement Address "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Just as we wouldn't expect David Lynch to deliver a traditional movie, nor should we expect him to deliver a traditional commencement address. "I did an interview with the Des Moines Register and said that this would be a strange commencement speech," the creator of Eraserhead, Mulholland Drive, and (with Mark Frost) Twin Peaks tells the 2016 graduating class of the Maharishi University of Management by way of opening not a speech but an on-stage question-and-answer session. The questions came from select students who want to know things like how he sees the world looking in ten years, what makes a good leader, and what makes a meaningful life.

One also wants to know how to "reconcile a job or career with our dharma or purpose." To that question, the very first, Lynch can respond with only one word: "Wow." But then, he had to have expected that question from a student at MUM, an institution established to provide something called "Consciousness-Based education" under which you don't just gain knowledge but "your awareness expands, improving your ability to absorb knowledge and see the big picture."




Integral to all this is Transcendental Meditation, the technique developed by MUM founder (and guru to the likes of the Beatles and the Beach Boys) Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and which Lynch himself has practiced since 1973.

Even if you have no interest in Lynch's memories of the Maharishi (a possible subject of a future movie of his, he implies), or in meditation of any kind, Lynch still dispenses a fair few pieces of valuable advice during these twenty minutes. "I always equate ideas sort of like fish we dont make the fish, we catch the fish," he says in response to one student who asks about how he falls in love with the ideas out of which his projects develop. "You fall in love with an idea and for me it may just be a fragment of a whole thing like a script, or a whole film, but this little fragment is so thrilling and...

Will A Universal Basic Income Lead to a Coming New World Order? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(By Michael Snyder) Should you get free money from the U.S. government every month simply for being alive?  That may sound like a crazy idea to many of us, but the truth is that this will likely be one of the biggest political issues in the 2020 presidential election. At this point, 40 percent of all Americans already prefer socialism to capitalism, and the concept of a universal basic income is starting to catch fire among grassroots Democrats. Many liberals are convinced that the time has come to fight for the right to a

minimum standard of living, and one study by a left-leaning group found that giving every adult in the country $1,000 each month would increase the size of the U.S. economy by more than $2 trillion. Giving every adult in the United States a $1,000 cash handout per month would grow the economy by $2.5 trillion by 2025, according to a new study on universal basic income. The report was released in August by the left-leaning Roosevelt Institute.  READ MORE

These results suggest that syringin protects against lipopolysaccharide induced acute lung injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Surg Res. 2017 Mar ;209:252-257. Epub 2016 Nov 5. PMID: 28032567 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of syringin against lipopolysaccharide-induced acute lung injury in mice. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Syringin, a major active substance isolated from Eleutherococcus senticosus, has been found to have anti-inflammatory effect. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects and underlying mechanisms of syringin on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute lung injury (ALI) in mice.METHODS: We established an LPS-induced ALI model in mice. We also detected the lung wet-to-dry ratio, myeloperoxidase activity, and inflammatory cytokines tumor necrosis factor alpha, interleukin (IL)-1, and IL-6 to estimate the index of lung injury in mice. Furthermore, the expression of nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor-2 (Nrf2), heme oxygenase-1, and nuclear factor B (NF-B) was detected by Western blot analysis.RESULTS: The results showed that the increases in lung wet-to-dry ratio, myeloperoxidase activity, malondialdehyde content, and levels of tumor necrosis factor alpha, IL-1, and IL-6 induced by LPS were significantly inhibited by treatment of syringin. The phosphorylation of IB- and p65 NF-B caused by LPS was inhibited by syringin. Furthermore, syringin was found to upregulate the expression of Nrf2 and heme oxygenase 1.CONCLUSIONS: In conclusion, the results suggest that syringin protects against LPS-induced ALI by activating Nrf2 and inhibiting NF-B signaling pathway.

People Are Making Such Ridiculous Claims About What Is Going to Happen Come Saturday "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(By Michael Snyder) All sorts of sensationalist claims are being made about what is going to happen on Sept. 23, and all of them are false. In recent days, I have spent time looking into these various claims, and I have been deeply disturbed by what I have discovered. Yes, it does appear that there will be a unique celestial alignment on Sept. 23, and it does appear that it at least bears a resemblance to what is described in the first couple of verses in Revelation 12. And yes, this alignment will happen at about the time of Rosh

Hashanah (the Feast of Trumpets). But people have gone way beyond those basic facts and have come up with ridiculous theories that are going to make them look like nut jobs when Sep. 23rd comes and goes and their predictions dont come to pass. For example, lets take a look at what Christian numerologist David Meade is saying. The following comes from Fox News: A Christian numerologist claims that the world will end next Saturday when a planet will, supposedly, collide with Earth. According to Christian numerologist David Meade, verses in Luke 21:25 to 26 are the sign that recent events, such as the recent solar eclipse and Hurricane Harvey, are signs of the apocalypse.

Is Fascism Already Here? St. Louis Police Chant Our Streets After Mass Arrest of 80, Including Journalists "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

St. Louis erupted into protest again Sunday evening, as law enforcement arrested at least 80 people kettling protesters and agitators together with journalists, live-streamers, and legal observers then proceeded to torture the detainees by targeting them repeatedly, unprovoked, with pepper spray.

While that affront to nearly every facet of the First Amendment amounts to distressingly typical law enforcement modus operandi for protests, officers apparently werent content to wield fascistic and brutal power over observers and demonstrators, alike.

In what could only be described as a terrifying portent for the future of our rights in the United States, law enforcement marched pompously down the newly-cleared city street after indiscriminately arresting dozens, video posted to social media reveals, snidely and coldly chanting a familiar refrain of anti-police violence activists and advocates,

PMID:  Nat Prod Res. 2017 Sep ;31(17):1995-2000. Epub 2017 Jan 4. PMID: 28049349 Abstract Title:  Chemical constituents of Eleutherococcus sessiliflorus extract and its sedative-hypnotic effect. Abstract:  The present study was designed to investigate the chemical constituents and bioactivities of the roots of Eleutherococcus sessiliflorus (E. sessiliflorus). The compounds were isolated through various chromatography techniques and elucidated by mass spectrometric (MS), 1D- and 2D-NMR analyses. The sedative-hypnotic effect of E. sessiliflorus ethanol extract and its fractions (acetic ether, n-butanol and water fraction) were also investigated. In the chemical constituent study, one new compound, 3-ethyl-5-hydroxy-3-(hydroxymethyl) pentyl-3-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl) acrylate and fourteen known compounds were isolated and identified. The chromatographic fingerprint of E. sessiliflorus was established by UPLC-PDA-MS/MS analysis. In bioactivity study, it was found that the water fraction of E. sessiliflorus extract could prolong pentobarbital-induced sleeping time more than that of the other fractions of E. sessiliflorus extract in mice, which provided a basis for future study on sedative-hypnotic effect of the chemical constituents in E. sessiliflorus.

The Story Behind That Viral Distracted Boyfriend Meme Photo "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

One of the hottest memes this year is the Distracted Boyfriend, also known as Man Looking at Other Woman. It shows a man looking backward, checking out another woman while his partner gives him a disapproving look.

The photo emerged in memes earlier in 2017 before going extremely viral and peaking in August. If you spend a lot of time on the Internet, theres a good chance youve seen this meme in one form or another. Heres one example of the meme geared towards photographers:

A look at the Google Trends chart shows how the meme absolutely blew up in late August 2017:

As the craze is dying down a bit, we caught up with photographer Antonio Guillem, the man behind the original stock photo, titled Disloyal man walking with his girlfriend and looking amazed at another seductive girl, to learn more about the shot and the story behind it.

Guillem is a 45-year-old professional advertising photographer based in Barcelona, Spain. For the past 5 years, he has been working 16-hour days, primarily shooting images for microstock agencies.

We are one of the top sellers microstock photographers in the world, Guillem says. 3 years and a half after we started, we were selling 1,600 photos a day.

Guillem says his best-selling photos are currently being purchased over 6,000 times every year, and this meme photo doesnt rank among his most popular work it sells about 700 times a year.

Your Vaccine Companys President Led Biowarfare Program & Experiments on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Did you know that your vaccines were made by a corporation whose president led the US biological warfare program? This video explains.

Merck and Co created the HPV vaccine Gardasil, the MMR vaccine, and others.

During the middle of World War II, George W. Merck, president of pharmaceutical company Merck and Co was in charge of the War Research Service, the biological warfare division of the Federal Security Agency in the US military.

George W. Merck secretly led the biological warfare agency during the same years he was the president of Merck and Co.

His trusting customers had no idea he was in charge of a secret biowarfare program: they only saw his face on the cover of Time Magazine, as he was lauded as some kind of hero for health.

His War Research Service was in charge of Ft. Detrick, in Maryland. Academic institutions participated in the War Research Service: the same prestigious colleges that promoted eugenics for decades leading up to World War II, such as Harvard and Stanford.

Ft. Detrick was a mad science center, and it produced biological warfare experiments on Americans. It produced the plan to spray San Francisco with the infertility causing bacteria Serratia marcescens.

Their techniques were improved with the aid of paperclipped Nazi scientist Kurt Blome. Kurt Blome was brought to the US from Germany to advise biowarfare experts at Ft. Detrick. He had a history of experimenting on victims with the dreadful Black Death, or Bubonic Plague.

In the very beginning of these biowarfare efforts at Ft. Detrick, that would lead to the spraying of San Francisco, George W. Merck was there.

George retired from Merck and Co in 1953, years after his retirement from biowarfare. Immediately following his departure, Merck manufactured Eli Lillys polio vaccine, which was found to be contaminated with the cancer causing virus SV40.

Today, Mercks HPV vaccine Gardasil has injured and killed thousands.

Those who wonder about the malicious intent of mandatory vaccination have been searching for answers: this history is sure to open to door to a lot of answers about why Mercks vaccines are killing people today.

Hillary Clinton: Women Only Voted For Trump Because Their Husbands Told Them To "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

hillary-incompetent

Hillary Clintons delusions continue. Its been almost a year since the election, and now Hillarys blaming married women who voted for Donald Trump for her loss to the president back in November.

Still unwilling to take any responsibility for her loss to Donald Trump, Hillary continues to play the blame game.  So far, shes blamed everyone from her most trusted advisor, Huma Abedin, to the infamous socialist and fellow democrat Bernie Sanders, for the disastrous campaign and ridiculous ideas she championed last year. But she doesnt stop there anymore. Now its the fault of married women who voted for Donald Trump.

According to the Daily Wire, the quintessential modern feminist Clinton says women were too scared to stand up to their husbands, boyfriends, and fathers, who told them to vote Republican, and since, clearly, women have no agency or ability to think for themselves, they listened.  Of course, thats according to Hillary. But she blamed socialist women as well. Clinton made the outrageous claims in an interview with NPR, where she also blamed the so-called Bernie Bros for bullying Democratic women into avoiding the more moderate Clinton in favor of the socialist, Bernie Sanders.

You yourself in the book acknowledge that a good number of young women didnt vote for you, which is presumably not a sexist choice. They just werent inspired by your message, NPRs Rachel Martin said during an interview with Clinton, out to promote her litany of excuseserrecently released book, What Happened.

These results show that Korean red ginseng inhibition of hypoxia-induced COX-2 expression and cell invasion is dependent on PPAR activation. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Ginseng Res. 2017 Jul ;41(3):240-246. Epub 2016 Apr 13. PMID: 28701863 Abstract Title:  Inhibition of hypoxia-induced cyclooxygenase-2 by Korean Red Ginseng is dependent on peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) is a traditional herbal medicine made by steaming and drying fresh ginseng. It strengthens the endocrine and immune systems to ameliorate various inflammatory responses. The cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2)/prostaglandin E2 pathway has important implications for inflammation responses and tumorigenesis. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR) is a transcription factor that regulates not only adipogenesis and lipid homeostasis, but also angiogenesis and inflammatory responses.METHODS: The effects of the KRG on inhibition of hypoxia-induced COX-2 via PPAR in A549 cells were determined by luciferase assay, Western blot, and/or quantitative reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR). The antimigration and invasive effects of KRG were evaluated on A549 cells using migration and matrigel invasion assays.RESULTS AND CONCLUSION: We previously reported that hypoxia-induced COX-2 protein and mRNA levels were suppressed by KRG. This study examines the possibility of PPAR as a cellular target of KRG for the suppression of hypoxia-induced COX-2. PPAR protein levels and PPAR-responsive element (PPRE)-driven reporter activities were increased by KRG. Reduction of hypoxia-induced COX-2 by KRG was abolished by the PPAR inhibitor GW9662. In addition, the inhibition of PPAR abolished the effect of KRG on hypoxia-induced cell migration and invasion.DISCUSSION: Our results show that KRG inhibition of hypoxia-induced COX-2 expression and cell invasion is dependent on PPAR activation, supporting the therapeutic potential for suppression of inflammation under hypoxia. Further studies are required to demonstrate whether KRG activates directly PPAR and to identify the constituents responsible for this activity.

The Difference Between Therapy Dogs, Service Dogs And Emotional Support Animals "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A dog does not need a special title to make a difference in his owners life he or she will happily offer companionship and comfort without asking anything in return. But sometimes making it official can help.

Service dogs, therapy dogs and emotional support animals are all types of hardworking canines with very different responsibilities. Some of these dogs are faithful pets, while others have spent years training to perform tasks. While the names of these helpful pups can get confusing, their roles arent exactly interchangeable.

So what is the difference between therapy dogs, service dogs and emotional support animals?

Service and assistance dogs



Meet Finnegan McNeil, a toy schnauzer and hearing alert service dog. He helps his dad navigate the world safely by alerting him to important sounds such as sirens, alarms, doorbells and cell phone rings with physical cues, such as pushing his nose to his dads hand.

Finnegans owner has hearing loss associated with Meniere's disease, and he relies on his service dog to keep him safe both in public and private spaces.

Finnegan spent two years training to perform his special task, and when he is on the job, he must stay focused. Service dogs like Finnegan can aid with a wide range of disabilities, from the physical to sensory, psychiatric, intellectual and mental. They help their owners in many critical ways by retrieving objects, pulling wheelchairs, turning on light switches, pushing elevator buttons, opening and closing doors or finding help.

One of the most important distinctions between service dogs and other types of working animals is that dogs like Finnegan are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the ADA, service dogs are not required to wear a special vest or sign (though they often do), nor do their owners have to provide proof of training.

Finnegan can go anywhere his dad goes, even if dogs typically arent allowed. According to the ADA, service dogs can enter libraries, supermar...

Whats Driving Tree Plantation Expansion in Latin America, Africa and Asia? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Originally published by World Rainforest Movement

 

Years before governments adopted the Paris Agreement, international initiatives promising millions of hectares of reforestation and forest restoration were launched, supposedly to benefit the environment and local communities. Yet, not one example of reforestation at scale exists that has achieved the promised benefits for communities and the environment. The one experience that has worked is the planting of hundreds of millions of hectares of eucalyptus, pine, rubber and oil palm plantations which the UN, governments and companies misleadingly call planted forests. Analyzing international plans more carefully, is it clear that communities in countries where the reforestation and forest restoration plans now announced in connection with the Paris Agreement should be on high alert.

The Bonn Challenge (1) was launched in 2011 in an event sponsored by the German Ministry of Environment and the conservation organization IUCNthe International Union for the Conservation of Nature (2). According to its website, the Bonn Challenge is a global effort to restore 150 million hectares of the worlds deforested and degraded land by 2020(..). The initiative emphasizes the importance of a landscape approach instead of a limited approach. Promoters say that 124.32 million hectares have already been pledged for this purpose, and that the 2014 New York Declaration on Forests has endorsed the Bonn Challenge thereby increasing its goal to no fewer than 350 million hectares and moving its deadline to 2030.

However, we cannot find a clear explanation on the Bonn Challenges website of the kind of restoration that will take place. It is unclear whether this might be with monoculture tree plantations, remembering that there are no examples in the world of native restoration programs on the scale of millions of hectares. The only reforestation on this scale that worked, has been the planting of tens of millions of hectares of monoculture eucalyptus, pine, acacia, rubber and oil palm. This expansion has occurred almost without exce...

The Search for a New Humility: Vclav Havel on Reclaiming Our Human Interconnectedness in a Globalized Yet Divided World "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Our respect for other people can only grow from a humble respect for the cosmic order and from an awareness that we are a part of it and that nothing of what we do is lost, but rather becomes part of the eternal memory of being.


The Search for a New Humility: Vclav Havel on Reclaiming Our Human Interconnectedness in a Globalized Yet Divided World

In his clever 1958 allegory I, Pencil, the libertarian writer Leonard Read used the complex chain of resources and competences involved in the production of a single pencil to illustrate the vital web of interdependencies economic as well as ethical undergirding humanitys needs and knowledge. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, Dr. King wrote from Birmingham City Jail five years later, as the material aspects of our interconnectedness became painfully inseparable from the moral. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.

How to inhabit our individual role in that mutuality with responsible integrity is what the great Czech dissident Vclav Havel (October 5, 1936December 18, 2011) addressed in his 1995 Harvard commencement address, later published under the title Radical Renewal of Human Responsibility in his collected speeches and writings, The Art of the Impossible: Politics as Morality in Practice (public library).

The Equifax Hack Is The Most Disastrous Data Breach In History Because Now Hackers Have The Credit Information Of 143 Million Americans "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

hack

Talk about a nightmare. It is being reported that criminals were able to hack into Equifax and make off with the credit information of 143 million Americans. We are talking about names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, home addresses and even drivers license numbers. If this data breach was an earthquake, we would be talking about a magnitude-10.0 on the identity theft scale. We have never seen anything like this before, and to say that this will be disastrous for the credit industry would be a massive understatement.

What really disturbed me about this story is that this hack reportedly occurred between mid-May and July of this year

Credit monitoring company Equifax has been hit by a high-tech heist that exposed the Social Security numbers and other sensitive information about 143 million Americans. Now the unwitting victims have to worry about the threat of having their identities stolen.

The Atlanta-based company, one of three major U.S. credit bureaus, said Thursday that criminals exploited a U.S. website application to access files between mid-May and July of this year.

A Midwestern Home Goes from Unlivable to Enviable "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

A Midwestern Home Goes from Unlivable to Enviable, Design*Sponge

One day in 2011, while searching Craigslist for rental properties in Minneapolis, MN, graphic designer Claire Moyle and animator Jeffrey Grutter came across a rather odd listing. The landlord of an early-1900s-era bungalow was offering free rent to any family willing to renovate it. Intrigued, the couple immediately set up a showing and prepared themselves for an encounter with what could have been a disastrous home and/or a rather interesting owner. Instead, Claire and Jeffrey found themselves touring a house full of untapped potential accompanied by a landlord who was both friendly and humble. All they truly wanted was someone to help them make the property a winner.

I think youll agree after taking a peek that Claire and Jeffrey have done just that. During their time renting, theyve had floors stained, combined neutral-colored accessories to create an environment thats perfect for unwinding, and painted nearly all the walls. The new paint jobs are amplified even further thanks to Jeffreys artwork. He went to school for painting, and his ability to create simple yet evocative pieces is truly admirable.

While renting, these two revitalized the space beyond recognition, but they gave it a second (even more dramatic) boost after purchasing the home in 2012. Since then theyve replaced the kitchen, landscaped the entire property, nearly finished the basement and painted the exterior a brooding navy that has surely made them the envy of every neighbor. Overall, its a space youre not going to want to miss. Scroll down to check it out, and enjoy! Garrett

Nikkis Weekly Tarot Reading: September 18-24, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Hermit and The 9 of Cups, Happiness

Oh happiness. Ever evasive, ever ambiguous.

We are told we must get it, we are often on some journey to seek it, and for many it is the ultimate goal. But what is happiness really?

We may think it is something external from us, something we can get or even buy. (Our capitalist systems have us think so at least.)

Happiness will look worlds different depending on the person, therefore it becomes impossible to describe.

This week, we will explore the idea of Happiness.

The cards also brought us the Hermit. And Happiness and the Hermit create a story that makes total sense.

The Hermit is beautiful card with imagery of fertility, creativity and light.  On the card, we see a figure turning away from the pubic and turning inward. They are caring a glowing light that will lead them on a journey within.

The cards are asking is to do the same. They want us to spend time away from others this week and go within.

They want us to listen to the quiet voices that are guiding us to our path. If we dont get away from the chatter of others we wont hear them.

An intentional hike alone, a long walk in your neighborhood, or an afternoon drawing and writing are all activities that help bring out the Hermit energy.

This is truly a powerful energy that can lead to so much growth. But you must spend time alone in order to connect with it.

I have seen this card come up for people before they were about to make a big decision. The cards sent them the Hermit in order for them to spend time with themselves and to connect with what they really wanted.

For those who are more introverted, this will be an easy card to follow and you will feel connected to the energy right away. For those of you who are more social, this can feel like homework and not something you are excited about necessarily.

Step out of your comfort zone and be away from people. Step away from your computer and phone as well. These are major ways we socialize even when we are alone.

We first need to embody the Hermit and spend intentional time with ourselves. But through the experience we will find we are more in touch with our emotions.

The 9 of Cups came with the Hermit this week to send us a message about our emotions.

This card indicates an understanding that we are connected to all things. This understanding can lead to a deep level of emotional contentment.

This not about seeking more or wanting more. This a card about knowing that everything is perfect just as it is.

I know there is so much we want to change and...

Canons M-i1 Mini Projector Can Beam Your Cameras Photos Wirelessly "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Canon has launched a new mini projector, the Mini Projector M-i1, that can be used to project photos and video wirelessly without needing a computer.

It measures only 105mm x 105mm x 22mm and weighs just 235 grams, but its able to project 1080p Full HD video over up to 3 meters, producing an 84-inch screen. The minimum distance for projection is 0.5 meters, which will produce a 14-inch screen.

The brightness of the screen is 701lm, and this is done using an LED light which is expected to last for around 10,000 hours of operation.

The projector will work over WiFi or Bluetooth, meaning that it can hook-up to smartphones, tablets, and even WiFi-enabled Canon cameras. This totally bypasses the need for a computer, allowing you to project photos on the fly.

Canon has targeted this new projector at a niche market that includes photographers looking to make presentations outdoors, or perhaps in conferences in open spaces where a larger projector would not be practical.

The projector will be able to read and project data stored in its embedded memory, or via a USB stick. It can be operated by a touchpad and has a built-in battery that lasts 2 hours.

You can even use the projector to charge a mobile phone, just like you would a normal battery pack.

These results provide strong evidence to support the development of sun ginseng for antiobesity treatment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Ginseng Res. 2017 Jul ;41(3):257-267. Epub 2016 May 4. PMID: 28701865 Abstract Title:  Processed Panax ginseng, sun ginseng, inhibits the differentiation and proliferation of 3T3-L1 preadipocytes and fat accumulation in Caenorhabditis elegans. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Heat-processed ginseng, sun ginseng (SG), has been reported to have improved therapeutic properties compared with raw forms, such as increased antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, and antihyperglycemic effects. The aim of this study was to investigate the antiobesity effects of SG through the suppression of cell differentiation and proliferation of mouse 3T3-L1 preadipocyte cells and the lipid accumulation in Caenorhabditis elegans.METHODS: To investigate the effect of SG on adipocyte differentiation, levels of stained intracellular lipid droplets were quantified by measuring the oil red O signal in the lipid extracts of cells on differentiation Day 7. To study the effect of SG on fat accumulation in C. elegans, L4 stage worms were cultured on an Escherichia coli OP50 diet supplemented with 10 g/mL of SG, followed by Nile red staining. To determine the effect of SG on gene expression of lipid and glucose metabolism-regulation molecules, messenger RNA (mRNA) levels of genes were analyzed by real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction analysis. In addition, the phosphorylation of Akt was examined by Western blotting.RESULTS: SG suppressed the differentiation of 3T3-L1 cells stimulated by a mixture of 3-isobutyl-1-methylxanthine, dexamethasone, and insulin (MDI), and inhibited the proliferation of adipocytes during differentiation. Treatment of C. elegans with SG showed reductions in lipid accumulation by Nile red staining, thus directly demonstrating an antiobesity effect for SG. Furthermore, SG treatment downregulated mRNA and protein expression levels of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor subtype (PPAR) and CCAAT/enhancer-binding protein-alpha (C/EBP) and decreased the mRNA level of sterol regulatory element-binding protein 1c in MDI-treated adipocytes in a dose-dependent manner. In differentiated 3T3-L1 cells, mRNA expression levels of lipid metabolism-regulating factors, such as amplifying mouse fatty acid-bindingprotein 2, leptin, lipoprotein lipase, fatty acid transporter protein 1, fatty acid synthase, and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, were increased, whereas that of the lipolytic enzyme carnitine palmitoyltransferase-1 was decreased. Our data demonstrate that SG inversely regulated theexpression of these genes in differentiated adipocytes. SG induced increases in the mRNA expression of glycolytic enzymes such as glucokinase and pyruvate kinase, and a decrease in the mRNA level of the glycogenic enzyme phosphoenol pyruvate carboxylase. In addition, mRNA levels of the g...

Big Something "IndyWatch Feed Comics"

(The embiggenation of some of these images can be caused by clicking on them.)

Bizarro is brought to you today by Americas Next President If I Have My Way.

Ive been thinking a lot about Bigfoot lately, although Ive no idea why. In the cartoon above, we see that Sasquatch belongs to a family in which each member has one oversized thing. (Get your mind out of the gutter.)

Not long ago, I published a cartoon about Bigfoot and his relationship to Trump. You can see it here. The cartoon inspired me to create a Bigfoot campaign poster and put it on a T-shirt. Im offering it in several styles and colors, so be sure to poke around a bit and find one you like. I think this design is super fun and a subtle way to tell people where you stand politically. (Way out in the wilderness where its safe. Relatively)  As always, your purchase helps keep the lanterns full of oil here at Rancho Bizarro so we can keep poking the Orange Menace with our cartoon swords late into the night. Please also consider forwarding the link to folks whom you think might like the shirt! See the wonderful, aformentioned product here.

Some other funny shirts are in my store, too, so fish around a bit. So far, I have two pages of stuff. Here is my stores homepage with the rest of the products.

Up next: nothing? How information overload is impacting our brains. "IndyWatch Feed Education"

The ol red dot.

15 years ago, I made two major choices before I went to school in the mornings. I picked what cereal I would have (how good were Ricicles?), then sifted through my CD collection before popping one into my Discman for the day.

Thanks for the image, Reddit

Sure, there were some other micro-decisions in there. But with these two major choices out of the way, I could get ready for school and pop down the road to the bus stop, cranking my CD of choice. It was probably ska punk. (And Im not embarrassed by that in the slightest).

Id arrive at the bus stop and hang out, waiting for the bus to come. Listening to my music. Id get on the bus, stare out the window and keep listening. The album would probably be repeating by the time I got to school, disconnected, and went into the music rooms to play guitar.

This is a completely unremarkable story. My mornings were not exciting.

Then vs. now

However, try being a kid going to school today. Most adolescents own at least one device. According to Pew Research Centre, 73% of teens had access to smartphones a couple years ago.

Think of that same journey I took 15 years ago. Today, its not so simple. Armed with a smartphone and a Spotify subscription, the music choice grows from around 50 CDs to over 30 million songs. Even when you manage to choose an album, what are the chances youll keep listening until the end?

Never mind the overwhelming choice of songs. Theres the notifications youll encounter along the way. Vibrate. Facebook memory. Vibrate. Someone mentioned you on Twitter. Vibrate. Someone viewed your LinkedIn profile.

Thanks Meme Generator for this one

Gone are the days of staring out the window. On my tram rides these days, all I see are people staring down, engaged in screen time. Whether theyre playing games, checking on social media, or engaging in notifications, suddenly listening to music isnt the primary activity. Its the supplement, the background music to our own little smartphone worlds.

This matters.

How I built a Smart Mirror, with a little help from my daughter and her grandpa "IndyWatch Feed Education"

This month I built a smart mirror with my dad and daughter. This project spanned across three generations.

The idea started a few years ago with the novelty of a smart mirror. But before I was going invest the time and money to make one, I needed a practical reason to build one. Recently that reason presented itself.

In our kitchen we have a whiteboard where we list out our dinner plans for the week and I wanted to upgrade it. I submitted a presentation idea for the smart mirror at local tech conference. My smart mirror presentation was selected. This accelerated my timeline.

Programming the Smart Mirror with my Daughter

I needed help with the design of the smart mirror frame

since I live in the digital world designing software that lives in the cloud. My dad is a Mechanical Engineer who lives in the physical world designing the planes we fly though the clouds everyday. While talking with my dad one evening, he suggested to create some initial sketches of the mirror.

Initial Design of Smart Mirror

After a few more conversations with my dad and several design revisions, we settled on a simple box design for the frame. My dad knew more about woodworking than I did, and he had a few suggestions for me.

Like using cabinet draw sides for the sides of the frame as they already came with a groove to hold the glass. And using french cleats to secure the mirror to the wall. This also allowed it to be easily removed for transport.

Revised Design of the Smart Mirror

My wife was a huge support in this endeavor. She helped by sorting through dozens of televisions looking for the right price and features. The size had to be large enough for our kitchen, but not too large to make transporting a hassle. Finally she was able to get a television from Best Buy that had everything I was looking for. And the best part was that it was on sale.

The most noticeable part of the smart mirror is the reflective mirror. Most household mirrors are made from glass. But the biggest downside to using glass is that its fragile and doesnt transport well. I chose plastic as its lighter, more transparent, and more durable.

Its nice to talk to experts and I live in Seattle which has a great local plastic supplier. They were excellent and able to help me select the correct plastic. They suggested acrylic and we even tested the mirror film I had acquir...

Korean red ginseng has a protective effect against FK506-induced damage in LLC-PK1 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Ginseng Res. 2017 Jul ;41(3):284-289. Epub 2016 May 24. PMID: 28701868 Abstract Title:  Protective effect of Korean Red Ginseng against FK506-induced damage in LLC-PK1 cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Compound FK506 is an immunosuppressant agent that is frequently used to prevent rejection of solid organs upon transplant. However, nephrotoxicity due to apoptosis and inflammatory response mediated by FK506 limit its usefulness. In this study, the protective effect of Korean Red Ginseng (KRG) against FK506-induced damage in LLC-PK1 pig kidney epithelial cells was investigated.METHODS: LLC-PK1 cells were exposed to FK506 with KRG and cell viability was measured. Western blotting and RT-PCR analyses evaluated protein expression of MAPKs, caspase-3, and KIM-1. TLR-4 gene expression was assessed. Caspase-3 activities were also determined. The number of apoptotic cells was measured using an image-based cytometric assay.RESULTS: The reduction in LLC-PK1 cell viability by 60M FK506 was recovered by KRG cotreatment in a dose-dependent manner. The phosphorylation of p38, p44/42 MAPKs (ERK), KIM-1, cleaved caspase-3, and TLR-4 mRNA expression was increased markedly in LLC-PK1 cells treated with 60M FK506. However, with the exception of p-ERK, elevated levels of p-p38,KIM-1, cleaved caspase-3, and TLR-4 mRNA expression were significantly decreased after cotreatment with KRG. Activity level of caspase-3 was also attenuated by KRG cotreatment. Moreover, image-based cytometric assay showed that apoptotic cell death was increased by 60M FK506 treatment, whereas itwas decreased after cotreatment with KRG.CONCLUSION: Taken together, these results suggest that the molecular mechanism of KRG in the FK506-induced nephrotoxicity may lead to the development of an adjuvant for the inhibition of adverse effect FK506 in the kidney.

Ginseng extract reduces tacrolimus-induced oxidative stress by modulating autophagy in pancreatic beta cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Lab Invest. 2017 Jul 31. Epub 2017 Jul 31. PMID: 28759009 Abstract Title:  Ginseng extract reduces tacrolimus-induced oxidative stress by modulating autophagy in pancreatic beta cells. Abstract:  We previously reported that long-term treatment with a calcineurin inhibitor impairs autophagy process in pancreatic beta cells. This study investigated the effect of Korean red ginseng extract (KRGE) on autophagy modulated by oxidative stress. In mice with tacrolimus (Tac)-induced diabetes mellitus, KRGE alleviated islet dysfunction and decreased oxidative stress and autophagic vacuoles. In vitro, KRGE decreased autophagosome formation and attenuated lysosomal degradation, accompanied by improved beta cell viability and insulin secretion. Addition of 3-methyladenine (3-MA), an inhibitor of autophagosomes, to KRGE further improved cell viability and insulin secretion, and bafilomycin A (BA), an inhibitor of lysosomal function, reduced the effects of KRGE. At the subcellular level, Tac caused mitochondrial dysfunction (impaired mitochondrial oxygen consumption, ATP production, and increased reactive oxygen species production). But KRGE improved these parameters. The effect of KRGE on mitochondrial function enhanced by 3-MA but decreased by BA, suggesting a causal relationship between KRGE effect and autophagy modulation in Tac-induced mitochondrial dysfunction. These findings indicate that KRGE modulates autophagy favorably by reducing Tac-induced oxidative stress, and this effect is closely associated with improvement of mitochondrial function.Laboratory Investigation advance online publication, 31 July 2017; doi:10.1038/labinvest.2017.75.

Danny Glover Debuts Rap Career as Fatherly Gambino "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

LOS ANGELES Legendary actor Danny Glover debuted his long-awaited rap alter ego Fatherly Gambino early last week, according to reports from Twitter spelled out in fire emojis.

The rap game is about to change Fatherly Gambino is about to drop a fire mixtape on all ur azzes, tweeted TheDev__420, who saw Glover debut as Fatherly Gambino on Thursday.

Glover claimed the move was out of necessity.

I want to excite a younger audience who may not know my earlier work, and these millennials keep tweeting at me, asking when my next album is going to drop, Glover said, holding a diamond necklace in the shape of Jigsaw. I assumed they meant recordings of my speeches on civil rights and activism, but they were insistent I make rap music. Im hoping people will finally stop confusing me with that guy from Community.

While the Community actor in question, Donald Glover, is much younger, the two are often mistaken in real-world conversation and Twitter @replies. You wouldnt believe how many death threats I got when people thought I was playing Spider Man, said the elder Glover, of no relation to Donald Glover. Most of them were hand delivered, too. Its hard being friends with Mel Gibson.

Despite the excitement from many music fans, some were skeptical.

Related:

Ive been a fan of Danny Glover forever, but I just cannot see him as a rapper. Hes simply too old for this shit, said rap historian Jeremy Walsh as he patted himself on the back.

In addition to his work as Fatherly Gambino, Glover is planning to pen a dramatic series with undertones of social commentary.

Its about a town in Georgia where my mother grew up, Glover said. Its something Ive thought about doing for a long time. The TV landscape has changed so much; I think executives would allow me the creative control I need.

Proactive systemic administration of Korean red ginseng may effectively reduce early allergic sensitization and suppress the Th2 response. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Korean Med Sci. 2017 Apr ;32(4):679-687. PMID: 28244297 Abstract Title:  Therapeutic Effects of Korean Red Ginseng Extract in a Murine Model of Atopic Dermatitis: Anti-pruritic and Anti-inflammatory Mechanism. Abstract:  Korean red ginseng (KRG) and ginsenosides exhibit diverse biological effects, including anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic. We aimed to investigate the therapeutic effect of KRG in a murine model of atopic dermatitis (AD) is mediated whether by diminishing the pruritus or by suppressing the inflammation. Thirty NC/Nga mice were randomly divided to 5 groups. AD-like skin lesions were induced by percutaneous challenge with 2,4,6-trinitro-1-chrolobenzene (TNCB) on the ears and backs of NC/Nga mice. KRG extract, evening primrose oil, cyclosporine, and phosphate-buffered saline were administered orally by a gastric tube. Each study group was also divided into scratching-permitted and scratching-restricted subgroups to evaluate the impact of scratching behavior on AD. The effects of KRG and the other agents were assessed by measuring the clinical severity score, ear thickness, extent of transepidermal water loss (TEWL), number of scratching movements, total systemic immunoglobulin E (IgE) and interleukin (IL)-31 levels, histologic changes of cutaneous lesions, and mRNA expression levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-, interferon (IFN)-, thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP), and IL-31. KRG exerts therapeutic effects against AD by inhibiting the T helper 2 (Th2) mediated inflammation as well as by diminishing the itching sensation. Moreover, restricting scratching behavior suppresses the vicious cycle of itching and scratching, thus reducing clinical and systemic inflammation in our murine model of AD.

A Film Connects Rat Control and Racism in Baltimore "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Harold Edmond in Theo Anthonys Rat Film (all images courtesy of MEMORY)

Yes, true to its name, Theo Anthonys Rat Film (2016) is about the pesky rodent. But its also about so much more than that, for it is also a chilling film about the roots of racism in Baltimore engineered while the city was being mapped out. How this is connected to the common rat is what Rat Film sets out to show.

For his first feature-length documentary, Anthony has made a heterogeneous yet seamless work that is a kindred spirit to Chris Markers and Adam Curtiss films such as, respectively, Level Five (1997) and HyperNormalisation (2016). Rat Film falls somewhere between the formers montage-based, essayistic method and the latters use of electronic music to generate unexpected connections that have an air of menace. The film creates a detached, disembodied, but never disengaged approach to the material, an impression generated by Maureen Jones flat narration and Dan Deacons unusually ominous and entrancing score. Its a score that complements but doesnt overwhelm the film. It only asserts its presence in Anthonys interstitial shots, which allow for a pause between the films different sections.

Providing different perspectives to Baltimores rat problem, an assortment of people appear before Anthonys camera: while their friend watches, two weathered men on a bench sing a tune about hating rats (I wanna hit them with a baseball bat); a man hunts rats with a personal armament of pellet guns; a duo use a fishing rod and a Louisville Slugger; a seasoned exterminator employed by the city dishes out his opinions (It aint never been a rat problem in Baltimore; always been a people problem) while making a few house calls; a snake handler who uses baby pinky rats for food; and a couple of pet owners introduce their rats.

Senate Bill to Force Citizens to Register Cash Not in a Bank, Violators Get 10 Years in Prison "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A new bill seeks to track your money and assets incessantly, will enjoin any business with government ties to act as a de facto arm of DHS, and would steal all of your assets including Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies should you fail to report funds when traveling with over $10,000.

Under the guise of combating money laundering, Senate Bill 1241, Combating Money Laundering, Terrorist Financing, and Counterfeiting Act of 2017, ramps up regulation of digital currency and other autocratic financial controls in an attempt to ensure none of your assets can escape one of the States most nefarious, despised powers: civil asset forfeiture.

All of this under the farcically broad umbrella of fighting terrorism.

Civil forfeiture grants the government robbery writ large: your cash, property, and assets can be stolen completely sans due process, your guilt frequently pertaining to drug crimes matters not.

A court verdict of not guilty doesnt even guarantee the return of State-thefted property.

In fact, the government can seize virtually whatever it wants if it so much as suspects some of your assets might have been acquired through or used in the commission of even lesser crimes.

For some time, a war on cash has been brewing behind the closed doors of government, and although officials prefer to claim counterfeiting, terrorism, and money laundering as the impetus for asset tracking in actuality, physical currency facilitates black market and untaxed transactions, and, most imperatively to the U.S., cannot be thefted under civil asset forfeiture laws as easily as money exchanged digitally.

Characterized as an effort to to improve the prohibitions on money laundering, and for other purposes, the bill severely curtails the right to travel freely, without undue hindrance, as travelers with more than $10,000 in assets including those held digitally, like Bitcoin must file a report with the U.S. government.

Noncompliance with the tyrannical law including failing to fill out the aforementioned form would incur penalties befitting a fascist dictatorship: an individual could find the entirety of their assets seized, not just those unreported, and could be locked in a prison cage for up to ten years.

To be clear, the State wants to write a permission slip to seize all of your assets bank accounts, including, specifically, safety deposit boxes, prepaid cards, gift cards, prepaid phones, prepaid coupons, cryptocurrencies, all of it even for bei...

On Sunday, two new murals by Banksy riffing on the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat appeared in central London on a street near the Barbican Centre, which is about to open a major Basquiat exhibition. The secretive British street artists two works in Golden Lane include a reinterpretation of Basquiats 1982 painting Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump that is also a jab at the Metropolitan Polices institutional racism problem.

Whitesplaining? Chelsea Handler Calls Ben Carson, David Clarke 'Black White Supremacists'

Twitter screenshot of Chelsea Handler calling Ben Carson and David Clarke "white black supremacists."

In a Netflix video about racism, so-called "comedian" Chelsea Handler attacked black supporters of President Donald Trump, including Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Ben Carson, as "black white supremacists."

"The most confusing group of racists are black white supremacists not to be confused with white black supremacists like Rachel Dolezal," Handler said in a video published Thursday.

"Black white supremacists are black people who think white people are better than them," she explained. "They include Stacey Dash, Ben Carson, and this guy Sheriff Clarke he's the only sheriff in the country who pulls himself over for no reason."

This screed, calling black celebrities "white supremacists" because they have supported President Trump, is not only deeply offensive, it's absurd. There is no indication that Dash, Carson, or Clarke have ever even suggested that they "think white people are better than them."

Banksy Unofficially Collaborates With Basquiat Outside the Barbican "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Just days before the opening of the first large-scale UK exhibition of artist Jean-Michel Basquiats work at the Barbican, Banksy stopped by in the night to put up two new murals. The first, which he refers to as a portrait of Basquiat being welcomed by the Metropolitan Police, depicts a figure isolated from Basquiats famous 1982 painting, Boy and Dog in a Johnnypump, being frisked by two police officers as a dog watches nearby. The second shows a line of customers queuing for a ride aboard a ferris wheel of Basquiats iconic crowns drawn in oil pastel.

Basquiat rose to fame in the late 1970s on the streets of New York as half of the graffiti duo SAMO. Banksys new pieces seem to simultaneously reference the prevalence of racial profiling in targeted stop-and-frisk procedures (Basquiat sometimes referenced police brutality in his own work), while also coyly challenging the Barbicans strict graffiti removal policy.

Pagan Community Notes: URI, Erin Lale, Dirge Magazine and more "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The United Religions Initiative (URI) held its global summit leadership meeting in Sarajevo, beginning Sept 11. The weeklong meeting brought together URI representatives from around the world and from many different religious backgrounds. The organizations goal is to promote enduring, daily interfaith cooperation, to end religiously motivated violence and to create cultures of peace, justice and healing for the Earth and all living beings.

Rev. Donald Frew was at the Sarajevo meeting as a representative of Covenant of the Goddess. Frew has been working in interfaith circles for decades, sometimes even as the lone Pagan voice at the table. He wrote, I truly believe that interfaith is our last, best hope for peace. He called URIs efforts one of the largest grassroots interfaith effort on Earth, involving several million committed, engaged individuals all around the world.

In terms of grass roots, URI has cooperation circles operating locally throughout the world, working toward a common goal of peace.  As such, Frew is not the only Pagan, Heathen or polytheist involved with URI both internationally or locally.

Photos and reports will be coming in from attendees at the leadership meeting and will appear on the organizations Facebook page. Frew said, No matter what is going on the world, its impossible not to have hope when [URI leaders] get together. He added that the presence of so many young people a next generation eager to take what we have to give and go further than we can imagine inspires us to work all the harder to live up to their expectations.

Canoe Washed Ashore by Hurricane Irma Could Be Hundreds of Years Old "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Hurricane Irma left a lot of destruction on its wake, but also some surprising discoveries. Florida photographer and self-proclaimed history buff Randy Lathrop stumbled upon an interesting piece of history after an early morning bike ride the day after the natural disaster touched down.

Emerging from the Indian River during the storm, a traditional wooden canoebetter known as a dugout canoewas laid out on shore. Scientists believe that it may be hundred of years old, and is an important part of Florida's history. Luckily, Lathrop knew immediately that he was looking at something important and took immediate action.

After calling the Florida Division of Historical Resources, as required by law, he took measures to make sure no one would mistake the precious artifact for debris and throw it away. It looked just like a log, Lathrop told ABC News. My main concern was to secure it from harm's way. I was able to go half a mile away and get my friend with a truck and we struggled to get into the back of the truck. It weighs almost 700 pounds, but to me, it might as well have weighed 1,000 pounds. It's been water soaked for years.

Now in the hands of an archeologist, where it's safely soaking in a water bath, scientists will use carbon dating to learn more about the 15-foot-long canoe. Its squared off form and cut nails are already clues about its age. The squared form indicates that it is a historical canoe, with cut nails going into production in the early 19th century.

Florida is a treasure trove of unique history and we are excited about the recent discovery of the dugout canoe, says Sarah Revell, a spokesperson for the Florida Division of Historical Resources. As we continue to evaluate and learn more about the canoe, our goal is to ensure it is preserved and protected for future generations in the local community and across Florida to learn from and enjoy.

To date, over 400 individual ca...

All Cartel Fingers at the Ready: The Assault on Gold & Silver Is GOING TO BE NASTY "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Last night did not go that well as we saw constant pressure on the precious metals throughout the night:

Constant, steady pressure to the downside. This is in light of Rocket Man comments, many Floridians still without power as 3 new threats are swarming in the Atlantic, Venezuela pricing oil in yuan, bitcoin erratically, Syria heating up again, and any number of pick your poison doubleplusbad fundamental news. However, we knew this would happen, which can be seen in the following ominous chart for silver:

When we look at silver, we see there is some minor support around$17.15. Major support is at $17:

Lets hope we really dont fall through $17 at this point, though we are quite certain the cartel will push as hard as possible on price to the downside over the next two days. Once $17 is lost, there is no consolidation anywhere on that daily, and momentum would most likely carry the white metal even lower, so a $16 handle before 2:00 p.m. EST on Wednesday is where they will indeed try to push the silver price down to. If there was a great time to scrape-up some extra cash and grab the change jar to put in an order, it seems like the best time would be over the next two days.

The MSM and the Fed are still in lock-step, singing to the same tune, and cheer leading the everything is awesome meme. Come Wednesday afternoon, however, this could all change, and there could serious move in the gold and silver market. The MSM feels the Fed can do no wrong, but the Fed has zero margin for policy error, and on top of that, if Yellen has a Freudian slip, the movein gold and silver prices could be violent to the upside.

Lets see all the different scenarios that could cause a big move in the markets:

  • No more balance sheet reduction talks
  • Talk of balance sheet expansion
  • Talk of hurricanes which will be combined with over-use of transitory

Cooking & Eating Wild Mustard "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

wild mustardLearn about the plants in your area. I live in Northern California and every spring you see acres of yellow flowers.  Most people ignore them, but a few know that you are looking at wild mustard.  They are good to eat and you can make mustard from them.

Some people eat the flowering tops just before they open.  They are cooked like broccoli.  My wife was raised eating the leaves.  The tender young leaves are used for cooked greens or in salads.

To Cook, wash the greens well and cook in salted water. Wild mustard can be somewhat sharp when raw and somewhat bitter when cooked. Blanching it or boiling it in water for a few minutes will remove the bitterness (the longer you boil the less bitter itll be).   It can be used like spinach in any recipe.

The seeds are black and can be used to make mustard.  They can also be used in pickling. We are going to experiment with making mustard and will post the recipe in the future.

Chickens and the rabbits love the dried stalks as a treat in the spring and summer.

Wild Mustard grows in most of the U.S. You will see it in the spring to early summer.

Mustard plants are most easily identified by their small and plentiful yellow flowers, growing in clusters atop a long stem.  If you look carefully at this picture, youll see that each of the flowers has four small yellow petals, and theyre in a cluster

If you have any doubts as to the identity of the plants I recommend you review the video at the following link

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXqYbWMBzqM

A good rule in foraging for wild plants is to always find a local expert to learn from, there are lots of poisonous plants out there.

Wayne White Explores the Battle of Hampton Roads in Multi-Media Installation at Virginia MOCA "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) announces the opening of their Fall/Winter Exhibitions on view September 16, 2017 through February 11, 2018 featuring an exclusive on-site installation; Wayne White: MONITORIUM.

Artist, designer, author, entertainer and the subject of the 2012 documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, Wayne White explores the 1862 Battle of Hampton Roads through a multi-media installation of the first battle of ironclad ships. Focusing on the intimate, human side of this game-changing moment in US naval history, the Unions USS Monitor will set the stage for Whites dynamic exhibition.

Whites experience as set and character designer for shows like Pee-Wees Playhouse and music video art direction for The Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Gabriel will transform MOCAs TowneBank Galleries into an evocative world of maritime wonder. Monumental-sized puppets, props, dramatic lighting, and sound will carve out Whites unique perspective, featuring individuals who helped shape the Monitors history.

The Mariners Museum and NOAAs Monitor National Marine Sanctuary have been instrumental partners in facilitating the veracity of Whites vision, providing history, facts, and data (and in one case sound) about the USS Monitor.

Alongside MONITORIUM is Small Works, Tall Tales featuring small scale sculpture from Virginia artists: Kim Overstreet and Robin Kranitzky, Wade Mickley, Deborah G. Rogers, Robin and Julia Rogers, Tracey St. Peter, John Tobin, and Aggie Zed.

Wayne White: MONITORIUM is made possible by support from the members of MOCAs Chairmans Circle.

For more information about the exhibitions, visit MOCAs website at VirginiaMOCA.org.

Wayne White: MONITORIUM continues at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (2200 Parks Avenue, Virginia Beach, Virginia) through February 11.

Traumatic Birth Recovery "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

frank-mckenna-140052

The axe forgets but the tree remembers. ~ African Proverb

 

What is a Traumatic Birth?swaraj-tiwari-90727

To many, it is a birth that leads to a diagnosable postpartum mood disorder such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Postpartum Depression (PPD), and/or Postpartum Anxiety (PPA). There are also many other possibilities for how a stressful birth can express itself after the particular event is over. Whether a person has enough symptoms to qualify for a medical diagnosis or not, symptoms and experiences can still interfere with daily life and bonding with the baby.

How to Recover from a Traumatic Birth?

Many people have different coping skills that can be used in recovering from a traumatic birth. Important to note, no matter what methods or therapies are utilized, recovery is not an automatic overnight process. All births take time to process and be incorporated into a personal history, whether it was ecstatic or traumatic. Many therapeutic methods can be helpful, no matter the overall birth experience.

Arkansas Woman Nearly Dies From Spider Bite "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

brownrecluse

A woman from Arkansas was left on the brink of death after being bitten by a poisonous baby spider. As she slept, Claressa Coleman was bitten by a brown recluse, and it almost cost her her life.

Speaking for the first time about her terrifying ordeal, Coleman said, I cant believe a baby spider nearly killed me!  She felt a little pinprick in the night, and she assumed she had been bitten by a mosquito.  She was unaware of the tell-tale symptoms of a brown recluse bite, such as the black mark where she was bitten and the bouts of vomiting. But the blood tests confirmed the doctors suspicions.  Coleman was allergic to the baby spiders poison, which caused her kidneys to fail. She also had convulsions in her stomach every five minutes, leading doctors to believe she could be pregnant.

coleman

Colemans entire body swelled and she became almost unrecognizable. Doctors gave the 29-year-old woman blood tests and dye injections which indicated she had the poison from the notorious brown recluse spider in her body. The arachnid is one of North Americas three venomous spiders, alongside the black widow and Chilean recluse. Doctors believe that Coleman was bitten by a baby spider despite the fact that its impact on her body was far from small.

The spider had bitten directly into an artery, injecting its poison straight into her bloodstream, so it raced through her body quickly making her much iller and more susceptible to its venom. She was also allergic to the venom, which made her month-long hospital stay agonizing.

Our cartoonists have been drawing many cartoons on the Rohingya crisis in Myanmar in the past few weeks. As criticism of Aung San Suu Kyi mounted, cartoons began the mirror this criticism, for instance by making references to the Nobel Peace prize she won in 1991. Other cartoonists contrasted Buddhism, usually perceived as a very peaceful religion, with the violent military campaign against the Rohingya. All these perspectives come from international cartoonists, who base themselves on international news sources:

By Heather CallaghanEditor

OrbMedia asks: If microscopic plastic is in oceans, lakes, and rivers, is it in drinking water as well?

In the first public scientific study of its kind, we found previously unknown plastic contamination in the tap water of cities around the world, they wrote recently in a special edition.

They claim everyone in the world is consuming plastic with each drink of water. As weve written before, plastics mimic hormones in the body and these can cause obesity and reproductive issues.

Microscopic plastic fibers are flowing out of taps from New York to New Delhi, according to exclusive research by Orb and a researcher at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health. From the halls of the U.S. Capitol to the shores of Lake Victoria in Uganda, women, children, men, and babies are consuming plastic with every glass of water.

More than 80 percent of the samples we collected on five continents tested positive for the presence of plastic fibers.

Im not going to stop the n-word: Tech CEO Insults Employees, Threatens And Assaults Women "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A lawsuit claims Silicon Valley CEO Gurbaksh Chahal habitually used racial slurs when speaking to subordinates, physically attacked two women and fired a male employee who attempted to prevent him from hitting a third woman.

Chahal is the subject of a lawsuit which alleges that he called workers his n**gers and took out his violent rages on employees. Two other pending lawsuits against Chahal accuse him of misleading investors, hiring women based on their looks and making death threats against one employee of his multiple tech companies, reported The Daily Beast.

In 2013, Chahal briefly stepped down as CEO of his ad tech company RadiumOne after a viciously attacking his girlfriend, according to David Ferguson of Raw Story.

Police examined surveillance video and determined that during the attack, Chahal punched and kicked the woman he was dating 117 times. He then tried to smother her with a pillow for 20 seconds. Court records show that microphones caught Chahal threatening the woman, Im going to kill you 4 times as he beat her, Ferguson reported.

The rich man resumed his position at RadiumOne after the judge dropped the myriad of felony counts against him because he strangely decided the video was inadmissible as evidence.

Its amazing how judges always seem to side with rich people.

The RadiumOne board decided they didnt want Chahal around, even though the judge let the vicious abuser walk free.

But Chahal formed a new company called Gravity4 and has continued to lead new business ventures including trying to raise $100 billion to start a new Bitcoin-like crypto-currency, the Daily Beast noted.

Gravity4 chief of staff Ali Al-Ansari filed a new suit alleging that Chahal is shockingly sexist, detailing a series of remarks...

"Artificial work": John McAfee accidentally just revealed why Bitcoin is a complete fraud "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

In a recent CNBC interview that's being widely touted by self-deluded Bitcoin promoters as some kind of "smack down" of JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon, Bitcoin advocate John McAfee accidentally admitted why Bitcoin is a total fraud that's doomed to fail. In answering Jamie Dimon's recent declaration that Bitcoin is a fraud, McAfee replied: (see the video at The Daily Sheeple) However, sir... you called Bitcoin 'a fraud.' I'm a Bitcoin miner. We create Bitcoins. It costs over one thousand dollars per coin to create a Bitcoin. What does it cost to create a U.S. dollar? Which one is the fraud? Because [the dollar] costs whatever the paper costs, but it costs me and other miners over a thousand dollars per coin - it's called 'proof of work.' Behold the logic of artificial work: How John McAfee just embraced Paul Krugman's ditch digging fable The problem with John McAfee's explanation, of course, is that it admits Bitcoins can only be created through the practice of computational wheel spinning operations where the difficulty and duration of such wheel spinning is artificially made needlessly complex by the Bitcoin algorithm. In a world where Bitcoins used to be created for less than one penny's worth of computational work, a single Bitcoin now requires over US$1,000 worth of "artificial work" to be achieved. A rational person must ask McAfee, "Why did Bitcoins used to cost just a penny to create, and now they cost a thousand dollars?" The 100,000 X increase in complexity for generating a Bitcoin, it turns out, is an artificial work algorithm known as "computational difficulty" in mining.

Why to Shoot 2,300 Photos Even if You Only Need 3 "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Whats the point in shooting thousands of frames when your client only wants a few? In this 10-minute video from The Slanted Lens, Jay P Morgan shares his entire process during a shoot and why he takes thousands of different shots.

If youve been commissioned on a shoot, its unlikely that your client wants to publish the thousands of images you may take. But by doing so you provide ample choice for the perfect shot that correctly fits their taste and style.

During a product shoot with a case used for transporting fishing equipment, Morgan shot 2,300 photos for his client.

He started by capturing a number of images of the subject walking away from his car with the case. Morgan captured every moment during a typical fly fishermans day, ensuring that absolutely every angle was covered.

Whats interesting is hearing how he minutely adjusts his angles and settings based on the results he is getting in the field, and that comes from constantly checking his shots on the cameras LCD.

While it may be obvious that shooting more than the single few frames youll ultimately be delivering is a good thing, the most helpful point you can take from this video is all of the different ways you can work to capture one single product effectively.

Andr Derain and Henri Matisse spent the summer of 1905 in Collioure, a fishing town in the southwest of France. There they painted the shores, its seascapes and boats, and the curvy mountains nearby. Their bold pigments and brushwork, with dots and lines of color allowing the white of the canvas to come through, defined the brief Fauvism movement. Now you can digitally wander one of those influential works, with FAUVISTa, a virtual exploration of Derains 1905 Bateaux Collioure.

The art interactive, recently shared by Warpdoor, is available as a pay-what-you-wish download for Mac and PC on Itch.io. It was created by designer Carlos Monteiro of Gigoia Studios, which has released a series of games where players enter paintings, such as SURREALISTa, a tribute to Giorgio de Chirico, and IMPRESSIONISTa, featuring Claude Monets waterlilies. The developers state they are very aware that digital imagery cant compare with the real art, and these experiences are intended to stimulate interest in the work.

Frankie Boyle has written about nuclear war and its required reading "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Frankie Boyle has written about nuclear war over on Facebook and theres lots to enjoy, even when hes contemplating an impending apocalypse.

And here it is in full.

Its impossible to imagine what its like to be killed in a nuclear explosion, but that doesnt mean we shouldnt try. I think it will probably involve being blasted over quite a large distance, and at a surprising height, while simultaneously having all your skin burnt off.

I know we think of it as being an instant death, but theres every chance that there will be a few seconds where youll be sailing out of your local school catchment area, at a height of about a hundred feet or so, as some sort of screaming skeleton. Maybe you will get to see your family melt before the blast picks you up, and your final memory will be of their faces devolving into cubism. Or maybe its more like being smashed to pieces by a wave of rubble. After all those years of driving into town to go to work, or go shopping, your city centre will finally be coming to you, moving at several thousand miles an hour, and hotter than Venus in July.

Donald Trump got himself into yet another war of words with North Korea after they test fired a missile that went over Japan. In a war of words you do not want to be on Trumps side: a man who speaks like hes on shuffle and has a smaller vocabulary than an upturned calculator. Its incredible to see the US take the moral high ground about, of all things, nuking Japan. Bear in mind that Japan a country that specialises in wooden buildings with paper walls. Its odd to think that as millions of people hunkered down in their paper houses during a potential nuclear attack, they were still safer than the many thousands of people in the UK living in high rise social housing.

Trump is like a fat bee bashing around inside a greenhouse repeatedly failing to understand why the world doesnt work as he thought it did. The chances of this unrepentant lunatic starting World War III are surely very high. Often, when I hear Trump talk even the most egregious garbage about wanting to strip people of their healthcare, or exile children, Im actually just glad that hes talking about the future, weighing his words like I would those of a possible suicide. This is a man who obsesses over winning, and uses success as his single metric for evaluating humanity, who has become the key player in a game which it is impossible too win.

Who would win in an all out conflict with North Korea? My best guess is a guy in Tokyo who knows how to catch and roast rats, who owns a shopping trolley and has t...

Wassily Kandinsky Syncs His Abstract Art to Mussorgskys Music in a Historic Bauhaus Theatre Production (1928) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

European modernity may never had taken the direction it did without the significant influence of two Russian artists, Wassily Kandinsky and Modest Mussorgsky. Kandinsky may not have been the very first abstract painter, but in an important sense he deserves the title, given the impact that his series of early 20th century abstract paintings had on modern art as a whole. Inspired by Goethes Theory of Colors, he also published what might have been the first treatise specifically devoted to a theory of abstraction.

The composer Mussorgskys most famous work, Pictures at an Exhibition (listen here), had a tremendous influence on some of the most famous composers of the day when it debuted, which happened to be after its author's death. Written in 1874 as a solo piano piece, it didnt see publication until 1886, when it quickly became a virtuoso challenge for pianists and a popular choice for arrangements most notably by Maurice Ravel and Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who, along with Igor Stravinsky and others, interpreted and expanded on many of Mussorgsky's ideas into the early 20th century.

Mussorgskys early death in 1881 prevented any living collaboration between the painter and composer, but its only natural that his minimalist musical piece should have inspired Kandinskys only successful stage production. In Kandinskys theory, musical ideas operate like primary colors. His paintings explicitly illustrate sound.

Interview: People Are Hacking IKEA Products into One-Of-A-Kind Decor "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

IKEA furniture is sometimes criticized for being plain looking, or that its so inexpensive that everyone has the same thing. (Have you ever owned one of their BILLY bookcases?) But, its affordability does more good than just keep your wallet happy. IKEA (perhaps unintentionally) offers a blank slate and starting point for DIY projects. IKEA hacks, as theyre known, transform ordinary bookshelves, lighting, tables, and more into one-of-a-kind pieces that express your personality.

The person leading the furniture hacks charge is a woman with the pseudonym Jules Yap. In May 2006, she was like many of ussearching the web for IKEA hack ideas. How great it would be if I could find them all in one place, she remembers thinking. Shortly after, her site IKEAhackers was born. Since then, contributors from around the world have submitted their ingenious repurposing projects and demonstrated how you can complete them for yourself. But even if you arent that handy, its still fun to see the creativity that comes from these otherwise ordinary IKEA products.

Yap, along with 19 other contributors, have compiled 25 furniture hacks into a book that's now available on Amazon. Learn more about it and her journey with IKEAhackers in our exclusive interview below.

DIY enthusiasts everywhere are turning their IKEA products into one-of-a-kind pieces with furniture hacks.

Oil palm firms advance into Leuser rainforest, defying Aceh governors orders "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Oil palm plantation companies are still eating away at the Leuser Ecosystem, one of Indonesias last best rainforests, despite a provincial ban on forest clearance to make way for the lucrative estates. In some cases, fruit from these plantations has entered the refineries of Wilmar International, Golden Agri-Resources, Musim Mas other palm oil giants that have promised to purge their supply chains of deforestation and other ills. Leuser straddles the border of Aceh and North Sumatra provinces, in the archipelago countrys westernmost reaches. It is home to an array of rare animals, including the unique Sumatran varieties of rhino, elephant, tiger and orangutan, In June 2016, the Acehnese government declared a moratorium on forest clearance for oil palm development, in a bid to prevent the loss of critical lowland forests in the Leuser Ecosystem. The moratorium was stipulated in a circular letter that ordered all oil palm firms to stop clearing forests, even within areas they have already been licensed to develop, while the government reviews their permits. That policy came on the heels of an announcement by President Joko Widodo that there should be no new oil palm plantation permits, with the country covered in the licenses already. But more than a year since Aceh issued its moratorium, plantations have continued to expand into Leuser. During the first seven months of 2017, Leuser lost 3,941 hectares of forest cover, an area almost three times as large as Los Angeles International Airport, according to local watchdog Forest, Nature and Environment

Woman Cured Terminal Brain Tumor With Cannabis Oil After Chemo Failed "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Scottish woman, Lynn Cameron, was told at age 48 that she had just 6 to 18 months to live. After a seizure landed her in the hospital in 2013, doctors discovered a brain tumor. She had surgery to remove the deadly brain tumor but doctors told her they couldnt get it all and that she was now in Stage 4, terminal condition. Radiation and chemotherapy did not shrink her tumor so her condition was still labeled incurable.

She began researching alternative therapies and first began an alkalizing diet and removed all processed sugar from her diet. When the radiation and chemo didnt change the tumor, she decided to really break the mold.

She tried cannabis oil after a friend suggested it. CBD oil is allowed to be prescribed in the UK, after its regulatory body, the MHRA found it to have a restoring, correcting or modifying effect when given to humans. See: First Briton Prescribed Cannabis Now Free Of Deadly Epilepsy And Seizures

After trying cannabis oil leaving it under the tongue for better absorption Lynn began getting MRI check-up scans. She was skeptical that it would work, but each successive scan showed the tumor shrinking. The sixth scan revealed that she was cancer free!

She told the Daily Record, I found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so ad...

More Doctors and Scientists Now Agree: Depression Is a Physical Illness "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Alex Pietrowski

For those looking for a way out of depression, recent research offers a totally different approach than is what is being offered by most doctors and psychiatrists. It centers around the findings in a host of new research which suggests that many cases of depression may be physical in nature, rather than rooted in a chemical imbalance or psychological disturbance.

Some 13 million Americans suffer from some form of depression, and some 350 million people worldwide are thought to have it. Typically, medical treatment centers around the restoration of certain chemicals in the brain which are believed to be required for happiness, even though it has already been acknowledged that this link has not been clearly identified.

To understand what imbalance is, we must know what balance looks like, and neuroscience, to date, has not characterized the optimal brain state, nor how to even assess for it.

A New England Journal of Medicine review on Major Depression, stated:

numerous studies of norepinephrine and serotonin metabolites in plasma, urine, and cerebrospinal fluid as well as postmortem studies of the brains of patients with depression, have yet to identify the purported...

When Bros Hug "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In February, CBS Sunday Morning aired a short news segment on the bro hug phenomenon: a supposedly new way heterosexual (white) men (i.e., bros) greet each other. According to this news piece, the advent of the bro hug can be attributed to decreased homophobia and is a sign of social progress.

Im not so sure.

To begin, bro-ness isnt really about any given individuals, but invokes a set of cultural norms, statuses, and meanings. A stereotypical bro is a white middle-class, heterosexual male, especially one who frequents strongly masculinized places like fraternities, business schools, and sport events. (The first part of the video, in fact, focused on fraternities and professional sports.) The bro, then, is a particular kind of guy, one that frequents traditionally male spaces with a history of homophobia and misogyny and is invested in maleness and masculinity.

The bro hug reflects this investment in masculinity and, in particular, the masculine performance in heterosexuality. To successfully complete a bro hug, the two men clasp their right hands and firmly pull their bodies towards each other until they are or appear to be touching whilst their left hands swing around to forcefully pat each other on the back. Mens hips and chests never make full contact. Instead, the clasped hands pull in, but also act as a buffer between the mens upper bodies, while the legs remain firmly rooted in place, maintaining the hips at a safe distance. A bro hug, in effect, isnt about physical closeness between men, but about limiting bodily contact.

Bro hugging, moreover, is specifically a way of performing solidarity with heterosexual men. In the CBS program, the bros explain that a man would not bro hug a woman since a bro hug is, by its forcefulness, designed to be masculinity affirming. Similarly, a bro hug is not intended for gay men, lesbians, or queer people. The bro hug performs and reinforce bro identity within an exclusively bro domain. For bros, by bros. As such, the bro hug does little to signal a decrease in homophobia. Instead, it affirms mens identities as real men and their difference from both women and non-heterosexual men.

In this way, the bro-hug functions similarly to the co-masturbation and same-sex sexual practices of heterosexually identified white men, documented by the sociologist Jane Ward in her book, Not Gay. Ward argues that when straight white...

From the KKK to Darfur, Reflecting on Evil as a Deliberate Act "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Evil: A Matter of Intent at Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, installation view (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

MIAMI A new exhibition at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, Evil: A Matter of Intent, examines the exigencies of cruelty what it takes to create it and the methodology that allows it to exist. Evil is not, the artists here purport, something intrinsic to humanity, not by birth, anyway. Acts of evil are deliberate. Evil is a choice.

Before traveling here, this exhibition was previously at the Hebrew Union College Jewish Institute of Religion. There, it didnt include the blood-red KKK King Kleagle robe, a kind of pice de rsistance for the Miami show. King Kleagles oversee a given geographic area of the Klan and are responsible for recruiting new Klansmen, and this particular robe, from the 1940s, comes at an unnerving time, on the heels of the white supremacist demonstrations in Charlottesville.

Evil: A Matter of Intent at Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU, installation view

When I was very young, the KKK were my biggest fear, both because of who they targeted and the mythological quality of their symbolism it seemed childishly bold to set representations of Jesus aflame, as if Jesus would approve. It was as if theyd do anything to justify their hatred and, as Evil reveals, my childhood assumptions were correct. A weapon accompanies the robe: a literal stick of wood carved into sharp points, its user part resourceful Boy Scout and part warmon...

North Koreas Nuclear Tests Could Trigger A Super Volcano "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

volcano

Following North Koreas sixth nuclear test, nations across the globe are ramping up defense systems and bracing for the worst. But it isnt only radioactive risks scientists are worried about now. North Koreas nuclear tests could disturb mountains in the Changbai range, along with the still-active Mt. Paektu, triggering the first eruption since 1903.

I was a member of the NASA Advisory Council on Planetary Defense which studied ways for NASA to defend the planet from asteroids and comets, explains Brian Wilcox of Nasas Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) at the California Institute of Technology. I came to the conclusion during that study that the supervolcano threat is substantially greater than the asteroid or comet threat.

According to Newsweek, Chinese authorities closed part of their border as radiation fallout fears intensified in the wake of North Koreas sixth test. China has limited access to a nature reserve on its border with North Korea after a mysterious series of seismic shakes at the rogue nations nuclear test site were detected less than 10 minutes after it conducted its latest test, which also triggered a sizable tremor. The severity of the tremors prompted Beijing to close the site over fears that underground detonations by the North Koreans at a facility near Punggye-ri could lead to rockslides, or worse, trigger an eruption of the active supervolcano Mount Paektu, according to Disclose.tv.

The volcanic site, which is sacred to North Korea,  is located right on its border with China. Chinas closure is in effect for a 70-mile-radius around the detonation site. A blast from this supervolcano could be catastrophic, with ash traveling thousands of miles, potentially causing hundreds of thousands of deaths.

Bitcoin Price Falls 40% In 3 Days Underlining Golds Safe Haven Credentials "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin price action shows cryptos vulnerable to commentary and government policies
Bitcoin falls to low of $2,980, down by $1,000 in week as China flexes muscles

Bitcoin and cryptos current volatility and exposure to governments underlines golds safe haven status

Courtesy of CoinDesk

Even for bitcoin last week was an eventful week. The price hit a recent low of $2,980, falling 40% and recovering by nearly 25% in the space of three days.

Last week was a good example of the vulnerabilities in the cryptocurrency space to government announcements regarding the infrastructure the ecosystem.

This last year has seen unprecedented progress and development in the bitcoin and crypto arena. From the price reaching new highs to an explosion in Initial Coin Offerings.

The fall in price by over $1,000 should serve as a reminder that markets will stumble when they try to run before they can walk. As much as early adopters like to declare bitcoin the new currency and declare is true safe haven, the last week has shown that gold is a far better long-term safe haven.

Government meddling

Reasons for bitcoins (and other cryptos) fall last week was mainly thanks to further crackdowns on bitcoin exchanges by the Chinese government. On Thursday bitcoin fell 16% against the U.S. dollar as the Chinese announced they were closer to shutting down cryptocurrency exchanges.

This week commentators believe crypto traders have now priced in the negative news from the East, however last weeks performance was yet another example of how vulnerable bitcoin still is to government announcements.

This weekend and this morning the price has begun to recover following a report from the Bank of International Settlements.

sewing: black & white shirting hadley top "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Jane of Buzzmills.

Hi there, Im Jane, a new contributor here at Imagine Gnats, and Im thrilled to be joining the rest of the Imagine Gnats team!

Im honestly not sure what makes me happier about this top. The pattern, shape, fitor the fact that I am wearing black and white, and loving it! Im not typically a wearer of black, but when I saw this shirting in the shop I knew itd be perfect!

Unfortunately, the black and white check shirting is out of stock, but there are two other shirtings in the shop, cherry and black, and peach and navy. The pattern calls for light to medium weight fabrics. This cotton shirting is a medium weight, and while it might not be as drapey as it would be if it were made in rayon, the structure works perfectly with this check.

The Hadley top has a center seam on both the front and back. Because of this seam I thought Id cut my fabric on the bias to add a subtle pattern play with the black and white check. This is the first time Ive done something like that. I think it turned out well, athough I did need to try twice with the front and did not do as well with the back.

Aside from the center seam detail, the Hadley top also has a variety o...

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: 'Owning the Weather' for Military Use "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Introductory Note

Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the worlds weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined.

Pipeline Builders Win Big Whether the Gas is Needed "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

ACP has severe economic & environmental impacts

Pipeline Payday: How Builders Win Big, Whether More Gas Is Needed or Not

Close corporate relationships between pipeline builders and gas buyers are allowing companies to reap higher profits while locking in emissions for years to come.

From an Article by Phil McKenna, Inside Climate News, August 3, 2017

The real fight over Americas energy future isnt in coal, despite the Trump administrations public focus on a mining revival. Rather, dozens of pipeline projects, making up one of the largest expansions of natural gas infrastructure in U.S. history, are where the fossil fuel action is.

At a cost of billions of dollars, these pipelines will tap the rich reservoir of fracked natural gas flowing out of the Marcellus-Utica shale basin that lies under much of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.

The Trump administration and its allies, energy-dominance manifestoes in hand, are eager to see these projects approved as soon as the presidents nominees to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) are confirmed by the Senate.

But are all these new gas pipelines really needed?

Critics say that the financial interests of gas and electric companiesnot market demandare driving most of the new pipelines proposed for the region. Those profits are approved by FERC, an agency that is charged with ensuring public interests, but that nurtures an exceptionally cozy relationship with industry, as described in a comprehensive investigation published last month by the Center for Public Integrity and StateImpact Pennsylvania, with National Public Radio.

At every turn, the agencys process favors pipeline companies, the review found after the groups interviewed more than 100 people, reviewed FERC records, and analyzed nearly 500 pipeline cases.

It also noted another cozy relationship: the tight corporate links between the companies building the pipelines and those buying the natural gas, either to deliver it to homes and businesses or to use it to make electricity.

These close relationships, explored in greater depth here by InsideClimate News, not only set up surefire profits at the expense of consumers, critics say; they also lock in long-term...

Fond du Lac Tribal & Community College Joins Achieving the Dream Network "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College

Published September 18, 2017

CLOQUET, MINNESOTA  Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has joined Achieving the Dream, a network of more than 220 colleges in 39 states dedicated to improving student success. As a Network institution, Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College will innovate to implement, align, and scale cutting edge reforms, work with Achieving the Dream coaches to build institutional capacity, and connect with peers to foster learning and share information.

This is a terrific opportunity, a new type of perfect storm combining positive energy, new ideas, and employee engagement, to work together to improve an already extraordinary college, said Dr. Anna Fellegy, vice president of academic affairs at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. Its important that we work from the inside out and not have an outside organization tell us what to do. We are our own best resource because we know ourselves well, we live our college mission, and we focus on our students.

Achieving the Dream offers a capacity-building framework and companion self-assessment that allow colleges to pinpoint strengths and areas for improvement across seven institutional capacities in areas such as leadership and vision, teaching and learning, and data and technology. Achieving the Dreams approach integrates and aligns existing college success efforts and offers valuable support in preparing for accreditation, fostering conversation about goals, and making bold, holistic institution-wide changes because initiatives that dont reach most of a colleges student body have not shown strong results.

Colleges that join the Achieving the Dream Network show an exceptional commitment to becoming the kind of institution that will lead the nation into the future, said Dr. Karen A. Stout, president and CEO of Achieving the Dream. The strength of local and regional economies, our ability to rebuild the middle class, and the possibility that a new generation will achieve their goals depends on community colleges.

Ian's One Year Book + Magic Memories Giveaway "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

This post is sponsored by Magic Memories. All opinions are my own.

Ok, first of all: yes, Ian is already 14 months. So yes, I'm way behind with this post. But better late than never right??? I always wanted to make him a cute one year baby book, but we were so busy this summer that it slipped down the priority list. So when Magic Memories reached out to me last month about creating a photo book with them, I was super happy for the reminder (and the extra motivation to get it done). And I love how it turned out! I'm so glad I didn't give up on this idea just because it didn't get done before Ian's birthday. Also! I have TWO $50 gift cards to give away at the end of this post so you can create your own photo book (or calendar? jigsaw puzzle? canvas for your wall? There are lots of options, and they all would make really cute personalized gift ideas too).

Baby's first year photo book

Magic Memories has a variety of pre-designed templates to choose from, for everything from baby books to wedding albums and more. They also have a "Blank" option that allows you to design your own book from start to finish. I went with the Blank for Ian's book, so I could have total control over the design, colors, number of photos, and everything. I'm used to working in Photoshop, so I created all the pages there, then uploaded them once I was happy with how they looked. But Magic Memories also has a built in editor you could use, with options to add text, photos, and effects. You can also save your progress as you go so you can work on your project over multiple days. And of course, if you prefer something that's less work on your end, they offer a number of cute templates that are ready to go.

One year baby milestones photo book

I chose to split the year up by different topics: the ultrasound, Ian's birth story, each season, and milestones like eating, growing, talking, etc...all the way up to his first birthday party. I created a template with a colorful background and descriptions in white, then I put full size photos on the opposite pages.

Why do People Self-Harm? You Asked Heres the Answer "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this piece for The Guardian, Jay Watts explores the social and societal factors that often lead to self-harm and explains how psychiatric labeling can exacerbate self-harm.

Self-harm is also often the result of a clash between an ideal image and ones self-image. For example, if a teenager feels that they have to do brilliantly at school to get into a top university for Mum and Dad, not achieving that 10th A* can feel like a shattering blow crystallising long-held beliefs that they are not good enough. Early caregiving has a crucial function in ensuring kids develop a good-enough self-image that can withstand the bumps and bruises of life. However, the likelihood that an acceptable sense of self will collapse is also a function of the ideals of society at any given time, hence the current epidemic of self-harm.

A neoliberal culture that pits kids against one another at an ever earlier age, digital culture, and a hypersexualised environment that privileges certain body-ideals all serve to increase the likelihood of a catastrophic gulf between the ideal and actual self-image. Discrimination is also a huge trigger behind the startling rates of self-harm in LGBT communities. Societal hatred of difference gets drip fed into individuals whatever their conscious beliefs, and enacted on their own body.

Jack White Diagnosed With Early Onset Johnny Depp "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Famed musician Jack White was diagnosed with early onset Johnny Depp yesterday following a routine check up, according to friends and family.

His facial hair changed, and suddenly he was even more egotistical than normal, said longtime family friend Craig Harbart. When he started carrying around a small dog in a $25,000 satchel, I feared the worst.

According to medical experts, Johnny Depp is socio-degenerative condition disproportionately affecting celebrities, slowly increasing their insufferability with age.

Due to the stigma surrounding Johnny Depp, most individuals dont discuss the disease publicly, said Dr. Lena Harris, a pioneering researcher in the Johnny Depp field. Early symptoms tend to develop in middle age, and can include excessive displays of scarves, jewelry, and black clothing. From there, patients may make dick-ish comments in public, buy eccentric homes, or appropriate Native American culture.

A network of friends and family have supported White as he comes to terms with his diagnosis. Both of Whites ex-wives have hosted separate, poorly attended charity fundraisers, while members of Third Man Vault, Whites official record club, now wear red headbands in solidarity.

Related:

Jack is currently on a regimen of 30 clove cigarettes a day, said ex-wife and primary care giver Karen Elson. Its still a lot, but the doctor says this is to avoid shocking Jacks system. We need to fight Johnny Depp slowly. Well start with the cigarettes, then Hunter S. Thompson books, and move on to gypsy jazz guitar. From there, Jack should make a full recovery and transition back to his normal life.

Doctors have instructed White to remain at his home in Nashville with only his acetate records, old-timey photo booths, and James Browns 1974 drivers license to entertain him.

Its good that we caught the disease so early, said Dr. Harris. With treatment, we should be able to stop it before it develops into full-blown Steven Tyler.

End in sight for India's notorious human safaris "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

The human safaris have risked exposing the Jarawa to diseases to which they have no immunity.
Survival

Notorious human safaris in Indias Andaman Islands may soon stop, after the authorities announced that a new sea route around the islands will soon open.

The new route will keep tourists off the infamous Andaman Trunk Road, which was built illegally through the forests of the isolated Jarawa tribe.

The road brings a daily invasion of hundreds of tourists into the heart of the Jarawa reserve, who treat the Jarawa like animals in a safari park.

One tourist described his trip: The journey through tribal reserve was like a safari ride as we were going amidst dense tropical rainforest and looking for wild animals, Jarawa tribals to be specific."

The Jarawa, like all recently contacted peoples, face catastrophe unless their land is protected.

The human safaris are also dangerous one Jarawa boy lost his arm after tourists threw food at him from a moving vehicle.

In 2002 Indias Supreme Court ordered the road closed, but it has remained open.

Survival International led a global campaign against the human safaris, calling for a boycott of the Andaman tourist industry until they came to an end. Nearly 17,000 people from around the world pledged not to holiday in the islands in protest.

The boycott will be called off as soon as the Andaman government agrees to ensure that tourists are no longer able to use the road.

Energetic Dissuasion and Free Will Manifestation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Energetic dissuasion has been a very widespread issue on this planet, that seems to not be well understood yet even among Lightworkers.

The dark have a system in place to dissuade people from doing positive things, which they have set up in a way to try that people do not realize it is happening. They use a synergy of :

Physical and non-physical implants

Physical and non-physical personally directed weapons, beaming frequencies of certain negative thoughts, feelings, suggestions, energies, etc

Black magic

Non-physical negative entities

They have people under quasi-constant surveillance, and they use all these things daily, adapted to each moment, to dissuade people from doing positive things, by making them forget about it, or not feel like it, or believe they cant do it, or be drawn away from it one way or another. They work hard to try to do it in such a way that targeted individuals dont realize what is going on, so that targeted individuals believe it is their own personal process and their own personal feeling, while in fact it is being manipulated externally.

It seems that many people have the idea that this only happen once in a while, only to individuals who are not awake. This is absolutely not the case. My purpose is not to bring negativity, but more understanding about the situation so that we can resolve it...

I own the van and my mum washes the kit, Rooney reminds team-mates "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Wayne Rooney has provided a timely reminder to fellow Manchester United players of his value to the team, following his appearance on the subs bench last weekend and ongoing speculation that he is out of favour with new manager Jose Mourinho.

Out of interest, how are you guys getting to Stoke next weekend? Rooney asked a crowded dressing room after Saturday comfortable win over Leicester City. Obviously, I usually take us in my Ford Transit. Nice and warm in there with the underseat heating, we can crank up the tunes on the stereo, but it does kinda depend on whether Im actually playing.

I guess little Marcus Rashford could take you all, continued Rooney. Oh, except he hasnt taken his driving test yet, has he? Zlatan could drive you in his Volvo, but itll mean a few trips. A real selection dilemma for the boss, isnt it? Oh and Chris, give my love to your granny wont you? Never mind why, just do it.

Might as well take your dirty kit home with you too today, added Rooney, pursing his lips. My mum wont be able to wash it anymore, if Im not involved. I love those Summer Fresh conditioner tablets shes been using recently, dont you? Wont matter so much for you Pogba, as you dont make any tackles, but for everyone else well, Im sure youll sort something out.

Rooney also announced that a number of other team activities could be under threat if he wasnt playing. These include his popular annual trip to Chessington Wold of Adventure, regular sleepovers and playdates at his house and his legendary funded trips to the sweet shop near their Carrington training ground, nicknamed Wagon Wheels with Wayne by fellow players.

Jose Mourinho responded by suggesting that Rooney needs to adapt to the inexorable passage of years and expand his portfolio of activities. If he wants to continue to pull in a big salary he needs to take on more media work, perhaps? suggested the Special One. A legend from Merseyside, interested in dough and making a decent crust, still good in short bursts for an hour a week during the Autumn season? I hear the Great British Bake Off may have some opportunities.

We can all be on this path BEing on the Edge (or, BE ALIVE, DAMMIT!!!) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In my view, we are continually being called to Live beyond the edge of ordinary consciousness. Ascension calls for releasing the limitations we have been holding on to and stepping out (and in this case, down). Danger is an invention of the mind. It is made up. Concocted. Suggest not falling into that trap.

And, yes, to so-called normal humans, releasing fear and ascending in consciousness, is dangerous. So BE ALIVE, DAMMIT!!!

The Economy: Doom Index Issues Extreme Warning "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Doom Index Issues Extreme Warning
by Bill Bonner

"First, the news. Cryptocurrencies took a beating after Jamie Dimon - the CEO of JPMorgan Chase, a bank that makes billions from todays fake-money system - called bitcoin a fraud. Bitcoin - the leading cryptocurrency by market value - is down to $3,143 at this writing. Thats about 36% lower than its all-time high of $4,911, set on 1 September of this year.

President Trump put another knife into Republicans. According to press reports, he agreed to not only give the Dreamers refuge, but also to forget about building The Wall. And the US national debt rose over $20 trillion, thanks to last weeks debt ceiling suspension. Meanwhile

10 Ways You Know Youre In Your Third Trimester "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Third Trimester

If you thought the first trimester was tough, its got nothing on the final few months of pregnancy. As you approach the end, time will slow down. What should be three months actually feels more like 18 years. At times, you will wonder whether you will be pregnant forever.

10 Ways You Know You're In Your Third Trimester

The weeks will tick by so slowly it will feel like youre stuck in a black hole where time has no meaning. Here are 10 ways you know youre in your third trimester:

#1: You Have To Hire An Industrial Crane For Your Bedroom

It is impossible to get comfy when youre heavily pregnant, and that is never more true than at night. You might think youll spend your nights tossing and turning. Think again. Theyre activities reserved for human-shaped bodies. Instead, you have to hire an industrial crane to help you change position in bed. You finally know how a beetle feels when it gets stuck on its back, tiny limbs wriggling in the air, as it desperately tries (and fails) to right itself. Your partner will eventually tire of heaving you out of bed. And shoving you from behind, every night, in an attempt to help you roll over, will get too exhausting. Just hire a crane, itll be easier. Sure, your partner might also get annoyed with the incessant beeping as the crane flips you over, but at least he wont be spending the twilight hours doing manual labour in an attempt to help you get comfy.

#2: You Have Frostbite From Wearing Flip Flops In The Snow

All women should be heavily pregnant in the warmer months. The sweatiness of giving birth on a hot day will be made bearable by the fact you can wear flip flops without getting frostbite in your toes. In the third trimester, putting shoes on is impossible. Even if you manage to force your swollen feet into a pair of comfy trainers, youll have no chance of tying the laces, due to the fact your belly is now bigger than a house. And dont even think of attempting to put on socks. Its just not possible. You'll have to embrace flip flops, even if you live at the North Pole.

#3: You Take Court-Ordered Anger Management Classes

Women in their third trimester inevitably end up taking anger management classes. Mainly because theyve punched to...

Benjamin Fulford 9-18-17 Donald Trump to go on November begathon to Asia [FULL ARTICLE] "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

[Note: please see the message from Bens team about the new subscriptions and payments at the end of this report.]

New weekly report from Ben. Once again, its the full report, and once again, Benjamin has very likely depicted a more complete picture of what is going on behind the visible surface events in the world.

US President Donald Trump is scheduled to go to Asia in November, officially to attend an APEC meeting but in reality to go on a begathon, multiple sources agree. The begathon is aimed at getting money to keep the bankrupt US corporate government going beyond the December extension it was given by its mostly Asian creditors enough money to continue operation for 3 months after its September 30th fiscal year end payments deadline because they threatened to destroy the planet, Asian secret society sources confirmed

The WDS [that] the US corporate government [be given] a choice for beyond December: either accept the next payments through Canada in exchange for Canadian led reform of your political and economic system or else we will call your bluff on all out nuclear war. In such a scenario the US military chain of command would remain intact and possibly even take over the Canadian armed forces as well. In exchange, the Canadians would have control over politics and the economy during a clean-up...

How Blockchain Could Transform The Way International Aid Is Distributed "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A new digital-payment platform from the United Nations World Food Programme is bringing efficiency and stability to refugee camps.

The future of world food aid arrived, in early May, unnoticed by its first recipients: the grocery shoppers inside a supermarket at the Azraq camp in Jordan, home to 36,000 Syrian refugees. To be fair, their buying process already looked pretty high-tech, especially for a store with a dirt parking lot in the middle of the desert. Before paying, each shopper peered into a black, rectangular iris scanner mounted at eye-level, which confirms users identities with the camps organizing group, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, and allows them to access a food stipend from the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP).

Watch Author Chuck Palahniuk Read Fight Club 4 Kids "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The first rule of Horsing Around Club is: You do not talk about Horsing Around Club.  Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club for Kids

Retooling a popular show, film, or comic to feature younger versions of the characters, their personalities and relationships virtually unchanged, can be a serious, if cynical source of income for the original creators.

The Muppets, Archie, Sherlock Holmes, and James Bond have all given birth to spin-off babies.

So why not author Chuck Palahniuk?

Perhaps because spin-off babies are designed to gently ensnare a new and younger audience, and Palahniuk, whose 2002 novel Lullaby hinged on a nursery rhyme that kills children in their cribs, is unlikely to file down the dark, twisted edges that have won him a cult following.

That said, his most recent title is formatted as a coloring book, with another due to drop later this fall.

The same spirit of mischief drives Fight Club for Kids, which mercifully will not be hitting the childrens section of your local bookstore in time for the upcoming holiday season (or ever).

Much like Tyler Durden, Palahniuk's most infamous creation, this title is but a figment, existing only in the above video, where it is read by its putative author....

Rigvir: Another unproven and dubious cancer therapy to be avoided "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Alternative cancer clinics have always claimed that their therapies "boost the immune system" to fight cancer. Recently, the Hope4Cancer Institute, a quack clinic in Mexico has added a treatment known as Rigvir to its other offerings. But what is Rigvir? It turns out that it's an import from Latvia, a purported oncolytic virus with a mysterious history that targets cancer specifically for which there is a profound paucity of evidence for its efficacy. Rigvir was approved by Latvia in 2004 based on grossly inadequate evidence. The story of Rigvir is the story of an unproven treatment that, because of its origin in a small country, has flown mostly under the radar. Until now, that is.

Peter Breggin, MD: The Conscience of Psychiatry (part 2) "IndyWatch Feed Health"

This week on the Mad in America podcast, we have part 2 of our interview with Dr Peter Breggin.

Dr Breggin is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist and former Consultant at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). He has been called The Conscience of Psychiatry for his many decades of successful efforts to reform the mental health field.

His work provides the foundation for modern criticism of psychiatric diagnoses and drugs and leads the way in promoting more caring and effective therapies. His research and educational projects have brought about major changes in the FDA-approved Full Prescribing Information or labels for dozens of antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs. He continues to educate the public and professions about the tragic psychiatric drugging of Americas children.

He has authored dozens of scientific articles and more than twenty books, including medical books and the bestsellers Toxic Psychiatry and Talking Back to Prozac. His most recent three books are Guilt, Shame and Anxiety: Understanding and Overcoming Negative Emotions; Medication Madness: the Role of Psychiatric Drugs in Cases of Violence, Suicide and Murder; and Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients and their Families.

As a medical-legal expert, Dr Breggin has unprecedented and unique knowledge about how the pharmaceutical industry too often commits fraud in researching and marketing psychiatric drugs. He has testified many times in malpractice, product liability and criminal cases, often in relation to adverse drug effects and more occasionally electroshock and psychosurgery.

Dr Breggin has taught at many universities and has a private practice of psychiatry in Ithaca, New York.

For a career as long and distinguished as Dr Breggins we have decided to devote two episodes to hearing him speak. The first part covered Dr Breggins career, his views on psychiatry and psychiatric drugs and also recent developments in the trial involving Michelle Carter.

Part 2 of the interview focuses more on recent events surrounding the trial and alternatives to psychiatric drugs.

Social Engineering From The Constitution To Pathological Psychosis: The Protocols Of Bankers Zion "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Avoiding politics is a goal that the vast majority of brain damaged graduates of government schools share. For the average trained bottom feeder, parroting the PC script for acceptance into polite society is a prerequisite to achieve their distorted image for self-esteem. Testing the conformity boundaries needs to be avoided.

Playing the acceptance game means that acquiescence is the default attitude. There is no room for critical discourse because the only valid positions are those assigned for adoption by the gatekeepers of political purity. And we all know what is in that Maoist Red Book of the 21st century cultural revolution doctrine.

Thus, the progressive ideology is instructed in every aspect of popular indoctrination. Surely, this method of ossification cannot be healthy for any society, much less our union that purports to be based upon democratic principles.

A cornerstone of progressive liberalism rests upon the quicksand of dependency that Big Brother provides. Now that several generations have been spoon fed from the tainted mothers milk of government addiction, the cows are lost on their way back to the barn.

 

Yet the echo chamber that shapes the pop broad-mindedness of the Looney Left rams the open loop of equivocation when the facts of the matter are exactly the opposite.

The most challenging thing you will ever do "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Parenting is, hands down, the most challenging thing you will ever do. It is scary, troubling, enthralling and exciting. It requires long hours, Herculean patience, trust and thousands of other skills and characteristics that our kids deserve and demand. As such, it absolutely requires-requires- us to do so much more than simply go through the motions, checking the block at each milestone and focusing on achievement. It requires us to think with our heads, lead with our hearts, question, learn, listen, and stay in the moment whenever possible.

Regardless of our philosophies on parenting or education unschooler or not, attachment parenting or not, or whatever your child rearing ideology-parenting really only requires one thing. It requires us to consider our choices and the impact those choices will have on our relationship with our children as well on their futures. It requires that we parent consciously, purposefully, thoughtfully. And regardless of the choices we make, parenting requires us to really think about it.
