Butter has gotten a bad rap for many years, starting in the last century with the rise of margarine, which we now recognize as a deadly trans fat.  More recently, butter has been shunned in favor of olive oil and canola oil.

The Ruger Mini-14 is certainly not a forgotten weapon, but I think there are some valuable insights to be taken from it. As a company, Ruger has an outstanding track record of making not flashy and exciting guns, but rather guns that are economical and dependable. The Mini-14 is an excellent example of that, with hundreds of thousands sold since its introduction in 1972. So today we will take a look at how Jim Sullivan simplified the M14 design when he scaled it down to 5.56mm for Ruger, and how the company used its investment casting expertise to further reduce production costs.

Trump offers to build customs border in Irish Sea "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

President Donald Trump, in what he called a celebration of the friendship between the two nations that fought side by side at the Alamo, has offered to help Britain by building the customs border in the Irish Sea it will need after Brexit.

My people tell me it will cost 10 billion dollars to build which means five billion, if you know what youre doing, he told a press conference consisting only of representatives of Fox News, with all other journalists jostling for position on the White House lawn and trying to read his lips through the press room window.

Asked who will build the wall, he said Probably Hondurans, I have the best Hondurans, there are 7,000 of them on their way here now, very fine people.
Best of all, they can drink from the sea as they work, since everyone knows its made of Guinness. And afterwards, Ill be happy to grant them Scottish citizenship, so they can work on my golf course.

Caravaggios Mark of Madness "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Caravaggio, The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist (16071608), oil on canvas, 361 x 520 cm, Saint Johns Co-Cathedral, Valletta, Malta (image credit: Caravaggio [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons)

VALETTA, Malta A street fight broke out in the Roman night of May 28th, 1606; weapons were drawn, and Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggios sword sliced through the thigh of a young pimp named Ranuccio Tomassoni, severing the artery. Caravaggio ran off with a grievous head wound, and Tomassoni bled to death. Thats as much as anyone can agree on.

Whether the fight arose over a trivial bet on a tennis match, sparked by years of bad blood, or whether Caravaggios cut to Tomassonis leg was meant to humiliate and not kill, or whether the blade was aimed at the groin as a symbolic (or even attempted) castration, the result was the same: the bando capitale, a sentence handed down by the Borghese pope, Paul V (the notorious persecutor of Galileo), granting license to anyone in the papal territories to kill the painter and present his decapitated head as proof that justice was done.

A few days later, Caravaggio fled Rome, with rumors of appearances in Florence, Modena, and the Lazio town of Paliano. Within four months he had arrived in Naples, and by July 1607, he was living in Valetta on the island fortress of Malta, where he sought the protection of the Knights of the Brotherhood of Saint John, with the hope of being admitted to their Order and thus obtaining a papal pardon.

As usual with Caravaggio, the history is murky, but some believe that the artists largest work  The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist (16071608), which is installed, now as it was then, in the oratory of the citys Cathedral of Saint John was painted as a form of passagio, the not-inconsiderable admission fee paid to the Knights by applicants to the Order.

Whatever the machination, on July 14th, 1608, Caravaggio succeeded in joining the non-celibate Knights of Obedience. As a point of pride, he added the letter f for fra (brother) before his name at the b...

Flight Attendant Praised For Breastfeeding Passengers Baby "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Flight Attendant Praised For Breastfeeding Passenger's Baby

A flight attendant has been hailed a hero for breastfeeding a hungry baby on her flight. Patrisha Organo, a 24-year-old flight attendant, has gone viral for breastfeeding another woman's hungry baby during a flight in the Philippines. The mother of the baby had run out of formula milk. The baby was crying hysterically after take-off on the early-morning flight . Knowing there was none available on the plane, kind-hearted Organo approached the mum to offer help.

Flight Attendant Praised For Breastfeeding Passenger's Baby

Any parent knows only too well how horrible it is to listen to your baby crying in distress. Especially when theres nothing you can do to help. Most parents find that stressful enough at home. Nevermind on a flight and surrounded by strangers. Luckily for the mum in question, help was at hand. The mum explained she'd been stuck at the airport since 9pm the previous night. As a result, she had run out of formula milk for her hungry baby. With a nine-month-old baby at home, Organo knew only too well how distraught the mum was feeling listening to her babys cries. Organo decided to help out in the only way she could. After the experience, Organo shared a photograph to her Facebook page where she wrote: I thought to myself, theres only one thing I could offer and thats my own milk. And so I offered The baby started rooting, she was so hungry. I saw the relief on her mothers eyes. I continued to feed the baby until she fell asleep. I escorted her back to her seat and just before I left, the mother sincerely thanked me. Unsurprisingly, this heartwarming tale of mums helping each other out has gone viral and attracted love from across the globe. Her post has been shared 34,000 times and attracted 164k reactions from people across the world. Strangers have commented from all over the world with their admiration and support for Organos selfless act. In an interview with Yahoo Lifestyle, Organo explained breastfeeding hadnt always been easy for her. She told Yahoos Kristine Solomon: In my early days of breastfeeding, I would really like to give up, but because I have the strong support of my husband, I kept going. He kept encouraging me. It was a storm of emotion...

Anatomy of a Psychiatrist "IndyWatch Feed Health"

This week on MIA Radio, we interview Dr. Sandy Steingard. Dr. Steingard is Medical Director at Howard Center, a community mental health center where she has worked for the past 21 years. She is also Clinical Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the College of Medicine of the University of Vermont. For more than 25 years, her clinical practice has primarily included patients who have experienced psychotic states. Dr. Steingard serves as Board Chair of the Foundation for Excellence in Mental Health Care. She was named to Best Doctors in America in 2003 and writes regularly for Mad in America. She is editor of the book Critical Psychiatry, Controversies and Clinical Implications due in 2019.

In this episode we discuss:

  • What led Sandy to her career in psychiatry and her particular interest in the critical aspects of psychiatry and psychology.
  • That Sandys initial interest was in biomedical explanations of psychotic experiences.
  • How, in the late 80s, the advent of new antipsychotic drugs caused an initial excitement because of the promises made about safety and efficacy, but that Sandy came to realise the problems with the drugs.
  • How she witnessed the over-promotion of the drugs and that the promotion was markedly different to the results of studies and her observations of patients that were taking them.
  • How a series of disappointments and recognition of some inherent flaws in psychiatry led Sandy to her interest in alternatives.
  • That the book, The Truth About the Drug Companies by Marcia Angel MD, had a big impact on Sandys view of the drugs during the 2000s.
  • Other influential books were The Daily Meds by Melody Petersen and Side Effects by Alison Bass.
  • That reading Anatomy of an Epidemic and particularly the problematic aspects of the long-term use of antipsychotic drugs caused Sandy to question how she was practising.
  • That she found colleagues were sometimes angry at the conclusion that antipsychotic drugs might not be safe or lead to better outcomes for patients.
  • That this led to the investigation of alternatives such as Open Dialog, training with Mary Olsen at the Institute of Dialogic Practice and discovering the Critical Psychiatry Network and the work of Dr. Joanna Moncreiff.
  • How Sandy approaches practising from a critical perspective, particularly when expectations ar...

Brooklyn Couple Sees Video of Disabled Daughter's Abuse on School Bus "IndyWatch Feed Health"

WeepNine years ago, it was Kim Rossi (then Stagliano) viewing video of a bus attendant physically abusing her daughter. Almost a decade later, this abuse continues.  One of my daughters "spits" when she has zinc issues and/or stomach pain and /or is trying to form a SOUND to communicate. She is not an angry camel projecting sputum to harm you. She is a disabled young woman trying to get through the day. Like Miss India Knox. I am so sorry for her family. I know the rage that erupts from the very source of your soul when you see evidence of your child coming to harm. It's visceral anger.  To the attendant Mr. Valmont. You are a piece of merde.

School bus attendant is caught on camera attacking 13-year-old special needs girl and pushing her head into the seat in front because she 'spat at other students'

Shaheen and Alex Knox are suing Leesel Transportation Corporation and attendant Beleck Valmont over the incident on October 30. Their daughter, 13-year-old India Knox, is dependent on 24-hour medical assistance and has the mental capacity of a five-year-old. Valmont was seen on video violently shaking the girl - who weighs just 84lbs - as they rode to the Manhattan Children's Center.  Justin Foster, the 34-year-old paraprofessional on the bus, said he filmed the altercation in order to protect India and the other children. The 48-year-old bus attendant claimed India had been spitting on other students. He has a daughter and has been working as a bus attendant for 13 years. Valmont was suspended and charged with six crimes including assault

NY Daily News reports:

Her parents said theres nothing the 84-pound girl couldve done to provoke Leesel Transportation Corp. attendant Beleck Valmont, who was captured on video shaking India by her head on the way to school. Another bus staffer, who was concerned by what he saw, shot cell phone footage of Valmonts actions and notified school officials.

How Has Binance Been More Successful Than Coinbase Within a Year? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Trading volume across the cryptocurrency market has remained on a downward path all this year. But that hasnt affected the growth rate of Binance, currently the worlds leading cryptocurrency exchange by volume.

The Malta-based organization expects to earn circa $1 billion in profits despite the market slump in 2018. That is almost $650 million higher than the annual profit projections of Coinbase, around $456 million by the end of this year. While the market awaits a more precise picture as both the exchanges post their annual reports next year, the surplus profit gap between the projections of Binance and Coinbase has pushed the former towards the title of the most successful crypto exchange in 2018.

Volume Comparison

According to a crypto volume index available at Blockchain Transparency Institute (BTI), Binance leads the crypto exchange industry concerning 24-hour trade volume. As of November, the exchange has posted $1.02 billion worth of daily transactions on its platform. Coinbase, at the same time, recorded just $106 million worth of volume. Other global exchanges, including OKEx, Huobi, BitFinex, etc. have published more capacity than their US counterpart.

Coinbase nevertheless tops the list when it comes to active users. The company has a total of 421,909 live customers as of November 2018 while Binance holds the second spot with 312,801 users in total.

SOURCE: Blockchain Transparency Institute Official Website

However, the BTI report mentions wash trading as one of the main factors behind the surplus volumes of the top exchanges. That said, traders who sell and purchase assets simultaneously could have been creating misleading financial activity on crypto exchanges. Moreover, trades involved in paid listings also generate fake volumes. Coins with small market caps supply exchanges with a large number of tokens of worth between 5 to 60 BTC. The exchanges then use these tokens to inflate their volu...

Global Insect Decline Now Hyper Alarming According to Latest Research "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Humans are good at reacting to crises that they can see right before their eyes, but if something isnt recognizing as an immediate threat, were very good at ignoring it. For the last 8 years we have been receiving warnings about the loss of honey bees and other pollinator insects, but yet so far have been wholly unable to comprehend what this means to our future, and therefore have been unable and unwilling to react with any seriousness.

In recent years weve reported on this unfolding catastrophe, pointing out the bees in Europe and North America are seeing major declines along with many other critical insects. In 2013, Florida declared two butterfly species had gone extinctGerman researchers in 2017 reported on a 75% reduction in the total biomass of flying insects.  Massive die-offs of bees is common these days, and many point to the widespread use of insecticides and other agrichemicals as the major cause.

Insects in general are in a massive die-off today, and the results could be catastrophic for the planet. A new report published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences brings attention to the spread of this calamity to the Americas, noting some 60-fold losses in arthropods and other insects in the rainforests of central america.

The loss is deeply extending into populations of frogs, birds, and many other ecologically important creatures, and the team of researchers compared insect populations in Puerto Rico today with those 40 years ago.

We went down in 76, 77 expressly to measure the resources: the insects and the insectivores in the rain forest, the birds, the frogs, the lizards, Lister said.

He came back nearly 40 years later, with his colleague Andrs Garca, an ecologist at the National Autonomous University of Mexico. What the scientists did not see on their return troubled them. Boy, it was immediately obvious when we went into that forest, Lister said. Fewer birds flitted overhead. The butterflies, once abundant, had all but vanished.

Garca and Lister once again measured the forests insects and other invertebrates, a group called arthropods that includes spiders and centipedes. The researchers trapped arthropods on the ground in plates covered in a sticky glue, and raised several more plates about three feet into the canopy. The researchers also swept nets over the...

Quids Company launched to assist impoverished charity chiefs "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Ex charity chiefs, whose funding has dried up, are to be supported by a brand new charity Quids Company following claims that they are likely to face severe personal hardship and social deprivation after years of financial enrichment.

The new charity will help deprived and vulnerable charity bosses in London, Liverpool and Bristol to come to terms with the ending of lucrative funding strands. A telephone support line, part funded by cash that should have gone to The Samaritans but somehow got diverted, will help those coping with the stress of any criminal investigations. Money will also be set aside to fight future legal battles and to help extended members of their families keep their mouths shut.

David Cameron has urged ministers to look into the situation and approve funding for the new charity before he gets blackmailed any further. Asked who he thinks will be a likely candidate to run Quids Company he said, We are looking for a larger than life character, someone with charisma and plenty of charm who is used to getting what she wants. And very colourful outfits of course.

In the meantime deprived children in London, Liverpool and Bristol are likely to be continually deprived after concerted efforts by the Government to cut family tax credits and funding to other charitable foundations. New drop out centres, or urban academies are now being set up in inner cities in play-grounds, bus shelters and outside Wetherspoons at zero cost to the tax-payer.

Growing Number of Crypto Companies Operate From Belarus

A number of cryptocurrency businesses are now based in the Belarus Hi-Tech Park after the government in Minsk legalized crypto-related activities for its residents. Registering an entity in the special economic zone was supposed to be a straightforward process, but clearer guidelines and detailed regulations are still needed to attract more investors.

Less than eight months after President Lukashenkos Decree 8 entered into force, the number of companies registered in the Belarus High Technologies Park (HTP) has increased to 388. Around half of them have become residents of the economic zone this year. The decree On the Development of the Digital Economy was signed by the Belarussian leader in December 2017. One of its main goals was to bring foreign high-tech businesses to the former Soviet republic.

Minsk also wanted to attract promising projects from the cryptocurrency space.

Indictments Coming Soon @ Justice!, 2436 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This is a paid sponsorship by: Good evening, Im still reporting on: Indictments Coming Soon @ Justice!, 2436 Synopsis: Sorry I couldnt post a report yesterday. I was traveling. But its probably a good thing, because Ive always said that I never write a hopeless message, yet if I had written a report yesterday, it wouldnt exactly have been a hopeful one. Fortunately, I couldnt put one up anyway and that was a good thing because in retrospect, 24 hours later, my outlook is entirely different especially after the announcement of Michael Whitaker, former US Attorney for Iowa, as the new acting attorney general a man who has said in the past that he would prosecute Hillary Clinton for her numerous felonious violations of laws dealing with mishandling of classified information. What a difference it makes when you have someone you can trust in the position of the nations top cop. Of course, Democrats are already calling for Whitaker to recuse himself just as they did to Jeff Sessions. We fell for that once, but not again. Just a note, I got it wrong in my prediction on the House, but pretty close on the Senate. The most interesting part is that I said the fake polling would be 3-4 points exaggerated in favor of Democrats. Ive seen no analysis of the House races, but today a story crossed on Fox that on the Senate side the exaggeration was on average 7-8 points! Wow! Thats a new record even for the mob. A lotta pollsters will have a lot of explaining to do to clients not already a part of the mob 2 years hence. SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: -- Nobel Gold.

Corey Goode Facebook update, 11-9-18 Alliance Update "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Interesting and informative update from Corey. This aligns, in some ways, with the recent Cobra update (related Kp blog post).

Please note that the 11-11 meditation he mentions is actually an 11-11-11 meditation (since 2018 = 11). Also, I feel drawn to be a part of this, and am feeling called to a place where this meditation may be most needed.

from one of my one remaining and original Alliance contacts all of the lower level briefings and bridge calls had been shut down this week due to a new phase of operations One of the most sensitive phases of the Alliance takedown of the cabal is said to have begun within the last few days to a week. If this latest intel is accurate, we expect the fist to tighten around operational information, even more, leaving many who have been fighting in the dark along with us until the objective is completed.

I was told that only a few select sources will be leaking specific Alliance intelligence items in a way that will prep the public and disseminate intel to higher level Alliance Cells. I was also told that the Alliance hopes to do most of this work comp...

Dominic Raab discovers tunnel under the English Channel "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

If this tunnel exists, then this could be a game changer, Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab told a secret meeting of the cabinet last night. It may sound like a story from the second world war, but the so-called tunnel has been there for some time, according to some people Ive spoken to, and provides a direct link-up between Southern England and virtually the whole of France. Not only is it under the sea, its under the sea bed. Thats how secret it is.

Probably, if it exists, it was dug by escaped British prisoners of war helping to liberate Europe from the N word people youre not supposed to mention. But if we did dig it during World War 2, where did we put the spoil? Clearly the earth they dug up would have been more than just a dozen trousers-full. But as far as I can see, there are no tell-tale earth mountains anywhere. Evidence of a hoax. Or rather absence of evidence.

I intend to go straight to the site of the entry to the tunnel this afternoon, just to check if it exists. Mrs Raab will record Eastenders on the Betamax, so no worries there. Im sorry security concerns mean I cant tell you that it starts in a British town beginning with D and goes all the way to a French coastal town. Possibly Bordeaux, or Des Moines. If I find anything Im setting aside some of the weekend to come up with ideas about how this tunnel could work in our favour, and whether we can put a frictionless border somewhere down there. Failing that, the only safe thing to do is continue keeping it a secret. When Mr Trump lets off his nuclear war planned for next summer, my guess is we can fit a good deal of the right kind of people from the South East down there, with their Brexit-no deal stockpiles of Heinz Ravioli and thermonuclear underwear.

One thing we can do immediately is quash the rumours. For example, Ive seen on the internet (which Mrs Raab has let me go on again after the incident with heavythrobbers.com) that some people say that this tunnel, which is probably a hole in the ground in Kent, is big enough to have trains running through it. I say let crazy fake news like that surface. Risky? No. Hear me out. People arent stupid. The crazier the rumour the less likely people are going to believe it.

Clearly, if it does exist and its big enough for a man to stand up in, the danger is after Brexit the Barnier hoards could simply pile through it, swamping southern England with Europeans demanding fruit picking jobs, strong coffee, universal credit and European sexual practices.

I for one doubt that is the case. But its my duty to go to Essex and check. If there is a tunnel there, it is crucial David Davis and Boris Johnson do not find out about it. If there isnt a tunnel there, I wonder if we could get David and Boris to believe there is a tunnel. Theyd emerge from their silence and go round threatening everyone with invasi...

Why Does Cold Weather Increase Your Risk for Heart Attack? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A number of bodily changes occur when you are exposed to cold temperatures. Although irritating and sometimes embarrassing, a runny nose in the cold weather is actually one way your body protects your mucous membranes.1 The additional fluid helps catch bacteria, viruses and other foreign bodies, which then leave as the mucus drips out of your nose.

The winter months are also a time when your skin tends to dry out, leaving it feeling tight, rough and itchy. Aside from being uncomfortable and less than aesthetically desirable, when it becomes severe, it can crack, making it a perfect entryway for germs. Although external variables contribute to dry skin, including omega-3 fats in your diet can help soothe irritated skin.2

On the other hand, one of the simplest strategies to improve mitochondrial function may be exposure to the cold. Called cryotherapy, cold exposure increases your bodys metabolic rate and induces the production of brown adipose tissue. This is incredibly mitochondrial dense fat that helps your body generate heat and lower your blood sugar and insulin resistance.3

However, before jumping into a snowbank this winter or choosing to exercise when the temperature dips below freezing, it is important to note researchers have identified an increased risk of heart attack occurring when temperatures plummet.4

Cold Weather Conditions Increase Risk of Heart Attack

The research was designed as a prospective, population-based, nationwide data gathering study, during which researchers collected daily weather data from the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute.5 They also extracted all myocardial infarction reports from the Swedish Nationwide Coronary Care Unit registry between the years 1998 and 2013.

Any patient admitted to any coronary care unit in Sweden with a myocardial infarction was included, totaling over 280,800 patients. Weather data was available for over 274,000 patients, which comprised the population in the final data analysis. The researchers had health information including age, body mass, smoking status and echocardiogram findings.6

The scientists were able to link an increased incidence of heart attacks to lower air temperature, lower atmospheric pressure, higher wind velocity and shorter duration of sunshine. Although they found each was associated with statistically meani...

The Science of Sleep and Sleep Deprivation "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Sleep deprivation can have a number of health effects and ramifications, ranging from mild to devastating. The 2015 National Geographic video, "Science of Sleep," starts out with the story of third mate Gregory Cousins, whose sleep deprivation led to one of the greatest environmental catastrophes in history.

Cousins had slept only six hours in the past 48 hours when he ran the supertanker Exxon Valdez aground, causing the 11 million gallons of crude oil to spill into Prince Williams Sound, devastating 23 species of wildlife and nearly 13,000 miles of shoreline habitat.

Indeed, research shows getting less than six hours of sleep in any given 24-hour period will slow your reaction time and leave you cognitively impaired, unable to make rational decisions. This is a devastating combination, and accident statistics offer sobering reminders of the seriousness of the situation.

In 2013 alone, drowsy drivers caused 72,000 car accidents in which 800 Americans were killed and 44,000 were injured.1 This is more than died from those texting and drunk drivers combined.

Sleep Deprivation Is a Recipe for Serious Accidents and Puts Lives at Risk

According to the American Sleep Association,2 nearly 40 percent of people report unintentionally falling asleep during the day at least once a month, and nearly 5 percent have nodded off while driving. Most people skimp on sleep because they feel they have to "get things done." However, the evidence clearly shows that what you end up with is the complete opposite of productivity.

Sleep deprivation is actually costing the U.S. economy $411 billion each year in accidents and lost productivity3 an amount equivalent to 2.28 percent of the gross domestic product. An estimated 1.2 million working days are also lost.

In worst case scenarios such as the Valdez oil spill and the space shuttle Challenger accident, life is lost. The latter is described in the 1988 paper "Catastrophes, Sleep and Public Policy: Consensus Report," published in the journal Sleep.4 Other costly accidents caused by sleep-deprived personnel inclu...

Facts About Red Raspberry Leaf Tea "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Red raspberry (Rubus idaeus) is a plant with a history going back thousands of years. According to historians, cave dwellers from the Paleolithic age consumed the fruit for sustenance.1 During the time of Christ, the fruit was gathered in the wild in ancient Troy. As the Medieval Ages came along, red raspberry expanded into the realm of art, where it was used as pigment for paintings and manuscripts.2

The red raspberry that most Americans are familiar with today is believed to be a native North American species, although it also thrives across northern Europe to northwestern Asia.3 George Washington was a notable advocate of this fruit, growing it in his garden.4

You may know red raspberry for its distinctive flavor and color, but that's not all it has to offer. Its leaves are used to make an herbal tea with various potential therapeutic uses. In folk medicine, raspberry leaves were brewed into tea and used to help treat wounds, diarrhea and colic pain.5

Red raspberry tea is known as a uterine relaxant,6 and is believed to help make labor and delivery easier.7 But did you know that it has other benefits as well? Discover what makes red raspberry leaf tea a beneficial drink that almost anyone can enjoy.

The Various Health Benefits of Red Raspberry Leaf Tea

I've written about the benefits of raspberry fruit before, which include the potential to help lower your risk of cancer and a host of inflammatory diseases. However, its leaves possess their own unique traits that make them stand out. Here are some additional benefits you should be aware of when you drink red raspberry leaf tea:

May boost heart health Potassium deficiency has been closely associated with high blood pressure and an increased risk of heart disease. In a study published in the journal Hypertension, those who consumed 4,069 milligrams of potassium daily had an impressive 49 percent lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease compared to those who only received around 1,000 milligrams per day.8

Nobody on Game Jam Team Actually Knows How to Code "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

BERKELEY, Calif. As the 5th annual UC Berkeley Game Jam kicked off, members of Team Kickass came to the sudden realization that none of them had the programming abilities necessary to make a functional video game, according to close sources.

Im here to do narrative design, Sarah came for sound design, Zach is our concept art designer, and Katie is our videographer. Did we seriously forget to get a programmer? asked team member Dylan Tanaka. Did literally every single person on the team assume they would be the one person who didnt know how to code?!

The team spent most of the typically coding-intensive hackathon filming live-action cutscenes, outlining overly intricate narrative concepts, and composing music, none of which could ultimately be put into the game due to their collective unfamiliarity with programming.

I wanted to use C# to create a menu screen, said team member Sarah Valenti, a music composition student with zero computer experience beyond Microsoft Office, but when I tried to push it to Github I got 2,145 compiler errors and somehow gave my computer a virus. Despite that setback, I think I finally got a start button working, thanks to a pretty helpful 15-minute tutorial video on YouTube.

The resulting game, entitled The Single Path, contains a 4 minute long video introduction with voiceover, a full orchestral score, elaborate graphic design, and a start button at the end of the cutscene that immediately crashes the game when clicked.

Were gonna try and pitch it to the judges as a multimedia experience without choices, said Tanaka, frantically pacing outside of the venue an hour before the deadline. If we can market it as a Bioshock sort of thing where its actually some kind of commentary on the fallacy of choice in contemporary gaming, we might be in the clear. Jaded game reviewers who hate their jobs eat that artsy bullshit up.

11-11-11 Mass Meditation Remembrance & Intention "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

group of candles

Dear readers,

(Note: Please read to the very end, the message is important)

Weve waited to the last moments to see the lay of the land on the upcoming meditation(s) for the 11-11-11 portal this Sunday the 11th November 2018. Numerologically, this Sunday is a rather special day. Its the 11th day of the 11th month and when you add the following digits of the year 2+1+8 = 11.

November 11th of the year 2018(2+0+1+8=11) represents another powerful 11:11:11 portal activation. What stands this one apart from the last 11:11:11 portal is that it falls on a Sunday. This day of the sun represents a opportunity to anchor the powerful healing energies of the Great Central Sun. We will not get another opportunity for a 11:11:11 portal activation that falls on a Sunday until the year 2063. Thats 45 years from now and when we add 4+5 we get 9 which numerology symbolizes as the last number before the next harmonic level. Thus the meditation on Sunday represents the beginning of the new and the 9 represents the ending of the old. Source

I said Meditation(s) for a reason, there are few that have been arranged, not all with the same instructions and intent and times. However, all sharing the same generalised goal of Peace, Love, Unity and Disclosure. Although each is doing and intending what they believe is correct, this slight lack of unity of ONE has been noted, but sadly a common practice within the tribal groupings of humanity.

Here is a nonexhaustive list of some meditations that is available on this date, at different times:

Alaskan Judge Who Gave No Jail Time to Man Who Sexually Assaulted Native Woman Ousted at Polls "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Judge Corey was defeated on Tuesday.

Published November 10, 2018

Editors Note: This article contains sexual content that may offend some readers.

ANCHORAGE  The voices of outraged Alaskan citizens were heard when they voted on Tuesday. Anchorage Superior Judge Michael Corey, who faced outrage when sentenced a non-Native man who chocked and sexually assaulted a Alaska Native woman to no jail time, was defeated in his attempt for reelection to the bench on Tuesday.

Judge Corey drew national attention in September 2018 when he sentenced Justin Scott Schneider, 34, to no jail time. Scott choked a woman until she was unconsious and then masturbated on her.

Schneider was given a sentence to two years in prison with one year of it suspended. He was given credit for the time of house arrest, which, in essence, gave this violent sex offender a mere slap on his wristswith no jail time.

At the time of the sentencing, the prosecutor said Alaska state law prevented him from bringing a sexual assault against Scott because current Alaska law does not consider masturbating on an individual against their will a sexual assault.

Even though, an independent review of the judges sentencing of Scott was conducted by the Department of Law Criminal Division Director and indicated Corey was in his limits of sentencing, the public felt differently and voted not to retain him as superior judge.

MOAB, Utah  Utah Federal District Court Judge, David Nuffer, dismissed the Willie Grayeyes and Terry Whitehat v. Cox case on the evening of November 8, 2018.  This means that the court cannot provide any other relief to plaintiffs Grayeyes and Whitehat than the preliminary injunction that the court issued on August 6, 2018.

Leonard Gorman, Executive Director for the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission, states The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission is very satisfied. The preliminary injunction did the job. Mr. Grayeyes is elected based on the unofficial ballot counts. The preliminary injunction forced San Juan County Utah to place Mr. Grayeyes on the November 6th general election ballot. With the court cased dismissed, the only matter that is still pending is the San Juan County appeal to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Gorman further states, There is much appreciation to the attorneys that took the case to the federal district court. Without their assistance it would have been difficult to get this matter appropriately addressed. In addition, Gorman states, while Grayeyes and the Navajo people in San Juan County prevailed in this case, I expect much more hardline stances against Navajo leadership in San Juan County.

The Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission is intimately involved in several voting rights cases in San Juan County Utah. For more information contact the Navajo Nation Human Rights Commission at 928-871-7436.

MIDNIGHT SHINE: I NEED ANGELS Debut Video Shines Light on Tough Topic "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published November 10, 2018

ATTAWAPISKAT, Ontario via WINNIPEG, Manitoba  Midnight Shine, the root-rockers who have been lighting up the music world all the way from the James Bay released their debut music video today, with hopes of shining light on a difficult topic affecting all too many.

I wrote I Need Angels because there are a lot of people struggling in Canadas Indigenous far North communities. Weve had a lot of loss, a lot of tragedies, and I think its important for me as an artist to shed light on these issues, says Midnight Shine frontman Adrian Sutherland, who hails from the Cree community of Attawapiskat in remote Northern Ontario.

Being isolated in the North can be very tough, and I know a lot of people who suffer from depression. The song is about that inner struggle to keep positive and not give up, and to hang on to hope and faith despite the darkness.

Attawapiskat is no stranger to media attention. The community of roughly 2000 has been associated with many distressing issues over the years, including suicide. Adrian has had family members take their own lives, and he sometimes struggles with his own mental health.

About the Song

I Need Angels was written by Adrian Sutherland, with Midnight Shine bandmates Zach Tomatuk and Stanley Louttit as co-writers, and John-Angus MacDonald (The Trews) producing. Its from Midnight Shines third album, High Road, which came out in spring 2018.

Sutherland hopes that ultimately, I Need Angels will serve to help others. Anyone who would like to have the song can download it for FREE from Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/midnightshineonline/i-need-angel

About the Video 

A production crew of three travelled up to Attawapiskat on the coast of the James Bay in early October to shoot the music video for I Need Angels  the first music video ever to be shot in the community. The locations were absolutely stunning in the changing fall colours, and well worth the many logistical challenges of shooting in such a remote place.

Given the nature of the song, Sutherland thought it would be fitting to create awareness of mental health and the suicide epidemic in Canadas North. To do this, a picture frame was used in the video, featuring haunting images of five different young people who h...

Xanthohumol suppresses inflammatory response to warm ischemia-reperfusion induced liver injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Mol Pathol. 2013 Feb ;94(1):10-6. Epub 2012 May 23. PMID: 22634733 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol suppresses inflammatory response to warm ischemia-reperfusion induced liver injury. Abstract:  Liver ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) leads to formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which cause hepatic injury and initiate an inflammatory response, which is a critical problem after liver surgery and transplantation. Xanthohumol, the major prenylated chalcone found in hops, has been discussed for its anti-inflammatory and ROS-scavenging properties, and thus, we aimed to investigate the effect of xanthohumol in a model of warm I/R liver injury. Xanthohumol was applied to BALB/c mice orally at a dose of 1 mg/g body weight for 5 days before I/R-injury was induced by clamping the vascular blood supply to the median and left lateral liver lobe for 1 h followed by a 6 h period of reperfusion. At this time, HPLC analysis revealed hepatic xanthohumol levels of approximately 2M, a concentration which has been shown to inhibit inflammatory effects in vitro. Assessment of hepatic HMOX1 expression, hepatic glutathione content and immunohistochemical analysis for proteins conjugated with the reactive aldehyde 4-hydroxynonenal indicated that I/R-induced oxidative stress wassignificantly inhibited in xanthohumol-fed compared to control mice. Histological analysis, TUNEL staining and determination of transaminase serum levels revealed no significant effects of xanthohumol on acute hepatocellular injury. However, at the same time point, pretreatment with xanthohumol almost completely blunted the I/R-induced AKT and NFB activation and the expression of the proinflammatory genes IL-1alpha, IL-6, MCP-1 and ICAM-1, which are known to play a crucial role in the subacute phase of I/R-induced liver damage. In conclusion, these data indicate the potential of xanthohumolapplication to prevent adverse inflammatory responses to I/R-induced liver damage such as after surgical liver resection or transplantation.

Xanthohumol inhibits STAT3 activation pathway leading to growth suppression and apoptosis induction in human cholangiocarcinoma cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Rep. 2016 Apr ;35(4):2065-72. Epub 2016 Jan 21. PMID: 26794001 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol inhibits STAT3 activation pathway leading to growth suppression and apoptosis induction in human cholangiocarcinoma cells. Abstract:  STAT3 plays a significant role in the development of cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) associated with the liver fluke (Opisthorchis viverrini; Ov). Xanthohumol (XN), a prenylated flavonoid extracted from hops, has known anticancer activity and could potentially target STAT3. The present study determined the effect of XN on STAT3, as well as ascertained its usefulness against CCA. The CCA cell proliferation at 20M and 50 M of XN was shown to inhibited, while 20 M partially inhibited IL-6-induced STAT3 activation. At 50 M, the inhibition was complete. The reduction in STAT3 activity at 20 and 50 M was associated with a significant reduction of CCA cell growth and apoptosis. We also found that the administration of 50 M XN orally in drinking water to nude mice inoculated with CCA led to a reduction in tumor growth in comparison with controls. In addition, apoptosis of cancer cells increased although there was no visible toxicity. The present study shows that XN can inhibit STAT3 activation both in vivo and in vitro due to suppression of the Akt-NFB signaling pathway. XN should be considered as a possible therapeutic agent against CCA.

Canning Meat "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Have you canned meat? Lets talk about canning meat. Success, failures, tips and how you prepare. I read that someone put in a bay leaf per jar and it was a bit overwhelming. I see people have canned raw meat and put up youtube videos on the subject. I could be wrong but I think prepared meat would be better to can. I think chicken would be easier and more versatile but that is just a guess plus chicken is cheaper so it could be bought in bulk and canned. I have little freezer space so...

Xanthohumol-rich hop extract may exert preventive function on the increase of body weight and tissue triacylglycerol levels by overnutrition. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Oleo Sci. 2014 ;63(2):159-68. Epub 2014 Jan 14. PMID: 24420065 Abstract Title:  Effects of xanthohumol-rich extract from the hop on fatty acid metabolism in rats fed a high-fat diet. Abstract:  Xanthohumol is the major prenylated flavonoid of female inflorescences of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus L.) and is a hydrophobic flavonoid. We examined the effects of dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract in obese rats that was induced by feeding a high-fat diet. Dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract significantly lowered the body weight gain of these rats compared to rats fed a high-fat diet without the extract. The increase of body weight, liver weight, and triacylglycerol levels in the plasma and liver of the rats fed a high-fat diet was ameliorated by dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract. Dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract tended to reduce hepatic fatty acid synthesis through the reduction of hepatic SREBP1c mRNA expression in the rats fed a high-fat diet. The excreted of triacylglycerol into feces also was promoted by dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract. Plasma adiponectin levels in the rats fed a high-fat diet also tended to be elevated by dietary xanthohumol-rich hop extract. Thus, xanthohumol-rich hop extract may inhibit the increase of body weight, liver weight, and triacylglycerol in the plasma and liver induced by feeding high-fat diet through the regulation of hepatic fatty acid metabolism and inhibition of intestinal fat absorption. Therefore, xanthohumol-rich hop extract may exert preventive function on the increase of body weight and tissue triacylglycerol levels by overnutrition.

Xanthohumol induces apoptosis and S phase cell cycle arrest in A549 non-small cell lung cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharmacogn Mag. 2015 Oct ;11(Suppl 2):S275-83. PMID: 26664015 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol induces apoptosis and S phase cell cycle arrest in A549 non-small cell lung cancer cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Xanthohumol, a major prenylated chalcone found in female hop plant, Humulus lupulus, was reported to have various chemopreventive and anti-cancer properties. However, its apoptotic effect on human alveolar adenocarcinoma cell line (A549) of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was unknown.OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to investigate the effects of xanthohumol on apoptosis in A549 human NSCLC cells.MATERIALS AND METHODS: A549 cell proliferation was determined by sulforhodamine B assay. Morphological changes of the cells were studied via phase contrast and fluorescent microscopy. Induction of apoptosis was assessed by Annexin-V fluorescein isothiocyanate/propidium iodide (Annexin V-FITC/PI) staining, DNA fragmentation (TUNEL) assay mitochondrial membrane potential assay, cell cycle analysis, and caspase activity studies.RESULTS: Xanthohumol was found to decrease cell proliferation in A549 cells but had relatively low cytotoxicity on normal human lung fibroblast cell line (MRC-5). Typical cellular and nuclear apoptotic features were also observed in A549 cells treated with xanthohumol. Onset of apoptosis in A549 cells was further confirmed by externalization of phosphatidylserine, changes in mitochondrial membrane potential, and DNA fragmentation in the cells after treatment. Xanthohumol induced accumulation of cells in sub G1 and S phase based on cell cycle analysis and also increased the activities of caspase-3, -8, and -9.CONCLUSION: This work suggests that xanthohumol as an apoptosis inducer, may be a potent therapeutic compound for NSCLC.

Epidemic Level of Peanut Allergies in the US -- Vaccine Adjuvants Include Peanut Derivatives "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Peanuts are high on the list of foods that kids are commonly allergic to these days. And for children who have this allergy, even the smallest exposure to a peanut can result in serious even life-threatening anaphylaxis. 

Experts freely admit that the peanut allergy situation in America is so serious as to be labelled almost epidemic, but insist they have no idea whats causing the problem.

A report by Mount Sinai Hospitals Jaffe Food Allergy Institute found that between 1997 and 2008, the number of kids with peanut allergies tripled, from just 1-in-250 to about 1-in-70.

This is shocking when you consider that even a few decades ago peanut allergies were almost unheard of, and in Eastern countries like India, where children eat large amounts of peanuts, such allergies are extremely uncommon.

Xanthohumol has potential use in chemoprevention of prostate cancer due to its sensitization of cancer cells to TRAIL-mediated apoptosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Mol Sci. 2016 Jun 22 ;17(6). Epub 2016 Jun 22. PMID: 27338375 Abstract Title:  Tumor Necrosis Factor-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand-Induced Apoptosis in Prostate Cancer Cells after Treatment with Xanthohumol-A Natural Compound Present in Humulus lupulus L. Abstract:  TRAIL (tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand) is an endogenous ligand, which plays role in immune surveillance and anti-tumor immunity. It has ability to selectively kill tumor cells showing no toxicity to normal cells. We tested the apoptotic and cytotoxic activities of xanthohumol, a prenylated chalcone found in Humulus lupulus on androgen-sensitive human prostate adenocarcinoma cells (LNCaP) in combination with TRAIL. Cytotoxicity was measured by 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide tetrazolium reduction assay (MTT) and lactate dehydrogenase assay (LDH). The expression of death receptors (DR4/TRAIL-R1 and DR5/TRAIL-R2) and apoptosis were detected using flow cytometry. We examined mitochondrial membrane potential (m) by DePsipher reagent using fluorescence microscopy. The intracellular expression of proteins was evaluated by Western blotting. Our study showed that xanthohumol enhanced cytotoxic and apoptotic effects of TRAIL. The tested compounds activated caspases-3, -8, -9, Bid, and increased the expression of Bax. They also decreased expression of Bcl-xL and decreased mitochondrial membrane potential, while the expression of death receptors was not changed. The findings suggest that xanthohumol is a compound of potential use in chemoprevention of prostate cancer due to its sensitization of cancercells to TRAIL-mediated apoptosis.

Kp Message 11-9-18 Yes, theres a lot going on, but "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Im not posting all of those things that are going on. I will say this, from my viewing of stuff and my own inner get:

1. There is voter fraud occurring, all over the place tonnes of it. It has been allowed to occur, so that it may be exposed, big time.
2. It is going to be exposed, big time.
3. Currently, the deep state is using the Democrat party side to try to do its dark work. It is backfiring BIG TIME on them (just as such would backfire on anyone, individually, who is not aligned with the Living from the Inner Truth paradigm).
4. The Light will win out.
5. Patience at this time is very helpful.

There are still some items that seem to be calling for my attention, energetically speaking. My primary attention is going to those.

Eventually I will return to the islands. Right now, I am truly IN-JOYing the colder temperatures and snow! And will continue to do so.

Xanthohumol inhibited the proliferation of MDA-MB-231 cells through a mitochondria- and caspase-dependent apoptotic pathway. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Indian J Cancer. 2014 Oct-Dec;51(4):518-23. PMID: 26842182 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol inhibits cellular proliferation in a breast cancer cell line (MDA-MB231) through an intrinsic mitochondrial-dependent pathway. Abstract:  AIMS: Xanthohumol isolated from hops has been reported to exhibit anticancer effects in diverse human cancers. However, its effect on breast cancer has not yet been clearly defined. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of xanthohumol on breast cancer cell proliferation.MATERIALS AND METHODS: After treatment with 5M, 10 M, and 20 M xanthohumol for 48 h, cells from the human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231 were studied using colony assay, flow cytometry, and western blotting.RESULTS: The survival rate of the MDA-MB231 cells treated with 10M and 20 M xanthohumol for 48 h decreased significantly by 64.7 1.8% and 40.1 1.8%, respectively. The numbers of SubG0/G1 cells in the group treated with 10 M and 20 M xanthohumol increased significantly to 11.3 0.2 and 18.4 0.1, respectively. A ladder pattern of DNA fragmentation was also observed. Xanthohumol increased the expression of Bax in the mitochondria, which correspondingly decreased in the cytoplasm. The activity of caspase-3 and caspase-9 was shown to increase significantly in the treated groups but not in the control group.CONCLUSIONS: Xanthohumol inhibited the proliferation of MDA-MB-231 cells through a mitochondria- and caspase-dependent apoptotic pathway. This result suggests that xanthohumol might serve as a novel therapeutic drug for breast cancer.

Effects of xanthohumol-rich hop extract on the differentiation of preadipocytes. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Oleo Sci. 2014 ;63(6):593-7. Epub 2014 May 15. PMID: 24829131 Abstract Title:  Effects of xanthohumol-rich hop extract on the differentiation of preadipocytes. Abstract:  Xanthohumol is a major prenylated, hydrophobic flavonoid found in the female inflorescences of the hop plant (Humulus lupulus L.). In this study, we examined the effects of xanthohumol-rich hop extract containing 17.8% xanthohumol and 12.4% isoxanthohumol on the differentiation and adipogenesis of 3T3L1 cells. We observed that the extract inhibited the differentiation of 3T3L1 cells and intracellular fat droplets via the regulation of adipogenic factors such as the peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma, CCAAT/enhancer binding protein alpha, and adipocyte fatty acid-binding protein.

Dog Saved From Backyard Breeder Was So Scared She'd Stop Breathing Near People "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Alsana belonged to a backyard breeder in Massachusetts and gave birth to litter after litter of puppies for years, until the breeder finally no longer had any use for her and dumped her somewhere across town. She was found by animal control officers, emaciated and suffering from all sorts of infections, and taken in to a local shelter, where the team was immediately taken aback by just how scared she was. She refused to interact with people at all, and it seemed impossible at the time that anyone would ever be able to adopt and care for such a fearful dog until the perfect family came along. 

Credit: Kara Pittsley

Kara Pittsley and her husband were contacted about Alsana by a friend of theirs who works in rescue and thought they might be interested in helping her. Pittsley immediately called the shelter to inquire about her, and they explained to her Alsanas situation. They told her that the cane corso could only be released into the care of a rescue who was equipped to handle such a scared, traumatized dog. The shelter seemed less than optimistic about her, but that only made Pittsley want to help her more. 

They told me that she didn't act aggressive at the shelter, but that made them even more concerned because she was so still and quiet, Pittsley told The Dodo. She would literally stand still and stop breathing if you walked by her kennel. They told me that she was deteriorating at the shelter, and that they would have to put her to sleep if a breed-knowledgeable rescue didn't step up for her. I showed my husband her picture, told him the story, and he was like OK, lets do it.

The couple went to the shelter to meet Alsana, and the poor dog wouldnt even look at them. Whenever someone looked in her direction she would run and hide, and she seemed as if she had completely shut down. Despite h...

And although Mark is more from the Christian/Biblical arena, I like to keep in mind that this is indeed a spiritual rising in consciousness, and it makes no difference from what spiritual arean one speaks from. See beyond the individual arena, is what I like to recommend.

Puppy Was Left Tied To Railing With Pizza Slices And A Note "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The weather was unusually warm in Philadelphia one day in October 2017 when Justin Hanley walked out his front door to a surprising scene: Someone had tied a 16-week-old puppy to the railing of his front steps. A clear plastic bag containing half-eaten slices of pizza laid next to the pup, just out of her reach. A note found tucked under the doormat told Hanley the puppy had been abandoned

Credit: Justin Hanley

The note simply read, Please take me home. Im a girl named Diamond. We can no longer keep her in our home. 

Credit: Justin Hanley

Hanley, a father to two small children with a dog of his own, knew he wouldnt have the time necessary to devote to a puppy, so he took her to his backyard and immediately posted on a neighborhood Facebook page called East Falls Rants asking for advice.

Within a few hours, Dont Bully Us Rescue (DBU) of southern New Jersey took Diamond, later named Serenity, into its care and found her an amazing foster family within a day.

I felt that it was terrible that a person can just abandon a sweet dog, or any animal to be exact, Chris King, Serenitys foster dad, told The Dodo. I saw [a Facebook post] that she needed a foster and I just knew I wanted to foster and give her the love she deserved so I messaged DBU about the post and got her that day to foster.

Family Looks Into Their Backyard And Sees The Strangest Animal Staring Back At Them "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A family was hanging out together in their home in Alsager, England, on Saturday when they happened to glance into their backyard and found the strangest animal staring back at them. While the animal appeared to be a fox, he was silver and black instead of orange, and the family was completely bewildered by the unusual visitor. The fox hung around their backyard for the entire day, and, not knowing what they should do, the family decided to make a post on Facebook to see if anyone around them could help.

Luckily, Amanda Lovett, a former employee of the RSPCA, lived in the area and saw the Facebook post. Since she still works in rescue, she knew she could help, so she grabbed some equipment and headed over to the familys home, hoping that the fox was still there. 

I managed to safely catch the fox with a grasper and put him in a cat box before taking him to Stapeley Grange [Wildlife Center], who kindly stayed open later so he could be admitted, Lovett said in a press release. He was very quiet and seemed tame.

The staffers at the wildlife center quickly determined that the fox, whom theyve nicknamed Shadow, is a silver fox, who are usually bred for their fur. Due to his fairly good condition and calm nature, its being assumed that Shadow was an exotic pet who either ran away or was abandoned by his former owners. The RSPCA are working to try and figure out exactly where he came from.

Xanthohumol inhibits osteoclastogenesis by modulating RANKL signaling and may be useful for the prevention of bone-destructive diseases. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2013 Dec ;62:99-106. Epub 2013 Aug 27. PMID: 23994090 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol modulates the expression of osteoclast-specific genes during osteoclastogenesis in RAW264.7 cells. Abstract:  RANKL has been shown to play a critical role in osteoclast formation and bone resorption. Thus, agents that suppress RANKL signaling have a potential to suppress bone loss. In this study, we examined the ability of xanthohumol, a structurally simple prenylated chalcone, to suppress RANKL signaling during osteoclastogenesis in RAW264.7 cells. Xanthohumol markedly inhibited RANKL-induced TRAP activity, multinucleated osteoclasts formation, and resorption-pit formation. In experiments to elucidate its mechanism of action, xanthohumol was found to suppress RANKL-induced expression of TRAF6, GAB2, ERK, c-Src, PI3K, and Akt genes. Moreover, RANKL-induced expressions of c-Fos and NFATc1, which are crucial transcription factors for osteoclastogenesis, were reduced by treatment with xanthohumol. Xanthohumol also inhibited RANKL-induced expression of bone-resorption related osteoclast-specific genes (carbonic anhydrase II, TCIRG, CLCN7, OSTM1, cathepsin K, and MMP-9). These data demonstrate that xanthohumol inhibits osteoclastogenesis by modulating RANKL signaling and may be useful for the prevention of bone-destructive diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis and periodontitis.

XRP/USD, BTC/USD Price Analysis: Ripple Bullish as Bitcoin Steady above $6,000 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Latest Bitcoin News

As the industry grow, regulation is important even if Bitcoin and other blockchain projects agitate for complete decentralization and decoupling from government influence. But when reality sets in and advocates realize that the industry cant get away with fiat if liquidity and volatility is to reign then the importance of Business Growth and Transformation bill (PACTE) which President Macron is working hard for will even be clearer. If everything goes as plan and the legislators approve an amendment bill seeking to reduce capital gains tax from 36 percent to 30 percent traders would enjoy tax reliefs encouraging adoption.

While regulation loosens, Mike Novogratz is now retracting his over ambitious BTC target blaming thin volumes and low volatility. Mike, a Bitcoin shill and investor, had famously predicted Bitcoin to test $40,000 by the end of the year banking on institutions to accelerate gains in a FOMO moment. But, that isnt going according to plan. Instead he expects BTC/USD to close near the $9,000 mark once bulls break above $6,800.

BTC/USD Price Analysis

Back to price and BTC/USD is all over the place. Even if we retain a positive outlook on price, the mere fact that buyers are failing to build momentum and close above $7,200 is deflating for bulls.

Though prices are trading above $6,000 main support line, this weeks close above the main resistance trend line is positive. It can even be the much needed impetus for bulls to edge past $7,200 igniting bulls aiming for $8,500 in line with our last BTC/USD trade plans.

Terrified Dog Couldn't Stop Hiding Behind The Couch When She Was First Rescued "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

When Meira was just a puppy, her owner brought her into a vet clinic in Missouri to be put down because she had been caught hunting the neighbors chickens. The vet saw how young and sweet Meira was, though, and knew she deserved to live, and convinced her owner to let the clinic try to rehome her instead. 

The vet clinic contacted Heading Home K9 Rescue, which agreed to take Meira in, and before long the rescue had transported Meira from Missouri to Wisconsin and into a loving foster home. She was malnourished, shy and incredibly scared when she first arrived in her foster home, but she was open to playing with the other dogs there, so the rescue decided they would try to find her a forever home with another dog, so that she would have a playmate to help ease her into her new life. 

Credit: Brenna Long

Brenna Long and her family were looking to adopt another dog to be a friend for their dog Carly. They had adopted Carly from Heading Home K9 Rescue, and when the director of the rescue heard they were looking to adopt another, she decided that Meira would be the perfect match for them. 

When we met her, she was just so sweet that we couldnt NOT take her home with us, Long told The Dodo. 

Credit: Brenna Long

Meiras new family was aware that she had some fears and anxieties she was working through, but had no idea just how scared she really was. When they first brought her home, she ran and hid behind the couch and wouldnt come out for several days. As time wore on, though, Meira got a little braver each day, and as her new family got to know her better, they began to get glimpses of just how badly she was treated in her past life. ...

The Vaccine Debate: Insults, Lies, & Hypocrisy "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"


Its been 10 years since I first delved into the topic of vaccination. With hopes of finding definitive answers, I combed through thousands of studies and articles written by a wide spectrum of authors some heavily pro, some deeply against, and many in between.

Ten years on Ive learnt a lot, knowing there is always so much more to learn, but I find myself disillusioned with what should be a straight forward, logical topic. I know many others feel the same. Ive found I cant enter into the topic of vaccination without being inundated with insults, lies, and hypocrisy (hence the title of this post).

While Ive seen people on all sides of this debate guilty of it to varying degrees, the majority of it seems to stem from the staunchly pro-vax camp. Im not talking about the average parent who feels vaccinating is best for their family, more power to you.

Im talking about the rabid pro-vaccine advocate who believes they have the right to FORCE each and every one of us  to vaccinate. They believe vaccination is a black and white topic, they believe those who disagree with their opinions are the enemy, and they believe you shouldnt get to choose what is injected into your own or your childrens bodies.

One things for sure, Im sick of hearing and seeing it; it needs to end. Here's a taste of what I'm talking about:

People use pictures and stories of sick or dead children to expose the reality of the diseases we vaccinate for, but they downplay or dismiss pictures and stories of children who become sick or die due to vaccine injury, calling them scare tactics.

IOT/USD, EOS/USD, ADA/USD, XLM/USD, LTC/USD Price Analysis "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

After days of lower lows and dry fundamentals, Stellar LumensXLM/USD, CardanoADA/USD and IOTAIOT/USD pairs are trading within a bullish breakout patterns and likely to print higher as the week close. But still, we shall maintain a bullish outlook on EOS/USD and LTC/USD aware that if the latter find support at $50, odds are prices will rise above $60 igniting buy pressure.

Lets have a look at these charts:

EOS/USD Price Analysis

EOS/USD Price Analysis

In the midst of relentless sell pressure, EOS/USD upsides have been clipped. So far, prices are down 2.5 percent in the last day but still clinging on bullish in the weekly chart adding 2.5 percent from last weeks close. Like in our last EOS/USD trade plan, we shall retain a neutral outlook with a bullish skew aware that prices are down +80 percent from 2017 highs.

You may find this interesting: Basic Attention Token Nosedives 20% Amidst SEC Crackdown Concerns

As such, EOS is likely to recover as prices consolidate inside a $3 range with clear supports at $4 and resistance at $7. If today close lower then odds are EOS/USD will slide towards $4 and in that case aggressive traders can would load at spot with stops at around $6 and first targets at $4 for a 1:1 risk reward ratio.

LTC/USD Price Analysis

Satellite technology unites Kenyans against bush fires "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

NYERI, Kenya It took nine hours for Margaret Wanjugu and neighbors to put out a fire that razed Gathorongai forest near her home in central Kenya, in 2016. She would not like to go through such an experience again, and for a good reason. Not only did the mother of two nearly lose her herd of goats, which were grazing in the forest, but elephants escaping the fire raided her field of potato plants, leaving her without a harvest. No help came from forest officers working here, Wanjugu said. We improvised and used twigs to put out the fire. Margaret Wanjugu leading her herd of goats home from Gathorongai forest in central Kenya, where they were grazing. The forest is prone to unexpected fire outbreaks that threaten farmers and wildlife alike. Image by David Njagi for Mongabay. Like thousands of farmers living near conservation areas in Kenya, Wanjugu lives in fear of Gathorongai forest catching fire. These communities lack an early warning system, relying on crude methods, like seeing smoke, to know of a fire outbreak. Recently, a technology developed by the Regional Center for Mapping of Resources for Development (RCMRD), a government agency based in Nairobi, has begun helping troubled Kenyans like Wanjugu with early detection of bush fires in conservation areas. RCMRDs Eastern and Southern Africa Fire Information System (ESAFIS) web application is a free and open-source service used in all conservation and protected areas in Kenya and 10 other eastern African countries.

Haiti may lose all primary forest by 2035, mass extinction underway "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

New findings indicate that at current deforestation rates, all of Haitis primary forest will be gone within the next two decades, leading to the loss of most of the countrys endemic species. The study was authored by researchers at Temple University, Oregon State University, the U.S. Forest Service and Socit Audubon Haiti, a non-profit conservation organization based in Haiti. Its results were published recently in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. By analyzing aerial photography and satellite images, researchers discovered that primary forest cover in Haiti shrank from 4.4 percent in 1988 to just 0.32 percent in 2016. They report that 42 of Haitis 50 largest mountains have lost all of their primary forests and the country is already undergoing a mass extinction of its wildlife due to habitat loss. Haitis recognized as having the highest proportion of threatened amphibians in the world, said S. Blair Hedges, director of Temple Universitys Center for Biodiversity and lead author of the study, in an interview with Mongabay. And thats largely from the deforestation. The critically endangered Macaya breast-spotted frog (Eleutherodactylus thorectes) is one of Haitis endemic species that lives in primary forests.

Xanthohumol might be a promising anticancer treatment candidate against lung carcinomas. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Toxicology. 2016 05 16 ;357-358:65-73. Epub 2016 Jun 15. PMID: 27317025 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol inhibits the extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK) signalling pathway and suppresses cell growth of lung adenocarcinoma cells. Abstract:  Aberrant activation of the Ras/MEK/ERK signaling pathway has been frequently observed in non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) and its important role in cancer progression and malignant transformation has been documented. Hence, the ERK1/2 kinase cascade becomes a potential molecular target in cancer treatment. Xanthohumol (XN, a prenylated chalcone derived from hope cones) is known to possess a broad spectrum of chemopreventive and anticancer activities. In our studies, the MTT and BrdU assays revealed that XN demonstrated greater antiproliferative activity against A549 lung adenocarcinoma cells than against the lung adenocarcinoma H1563 cell line. We observed that XN was able to suppress the activities of ERK1/2 and p90RSK kinases, followed by inhibition of phosphorylation and activation of the CREB protein. Additionally, the XN treatment of the cancer cells caused upregulation of key cell cycle regulators p53 and p21 as well as downregulation of cyclin D1. As a result, the cytotoxic effect of XN was attributed to the cell cycle arrest at G1 phase and induction of apoptosis indicated by increased caspase-3 activity. Thus, XN might be a promising anticancer drug candidate against lung carcinomas.

'Werewolf' Who Spent Months Waiting By Road Makes Amazing Transformation "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Just six months ago, people thought King was a monster.

Standing on the side of the road in Madera Ranchos, California, the stray dog was covered in scabs and hunched over in pain. His skin appeared scaly, and the disheveled black hair stood straight up on the back of his neck.

He started to become known as the werewolf, because passersby simply didnt know what kind of animal he was and they were scared to get close enough to find out.

Credit: Megan Bowe

Day after day for months, cars passed King by. He was injured, sick and starving. He didnt have much longer to live. But then, his miracle came.

The moment local rescuer Megan Bowe saw a post about King online, she rushed to his side. He was more sickly and frail than she could have ever imagined.

I was about ready to cry when I saw how bad off he was, Bowe, founder of Bowes Adoptable Rescue Pups, told The Dodo in May. He was really on his last leg. He was depressed and could barely even stand up.

Credit: Megan Bowe

Bowe knew right away who the werewolf really was: A very sick German shepherd. She brought him to an emergency vet, where he was diagnosed with a long list of ailments, including scabies, a broken pelvis and a severely broken tail. Vets estimated he was only around 1 year old and said he likely sustained his injuries from being hit by a car.

In just a year of life, King had endured much more than any animal should.

Xanthohumol isolated from Humulus lupulus prevents thrombosis without increased bleeding risk. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Free Radic Biol Med. 2017 07 ;108:247-257. Epub 2017 Feb 8. PMID: 28188927 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol isolated from Humulus lupulus prevents thrombosis without increased bleeding risk by inhibiting platelet activation and mtDNA release. Abstract:  AIM: As the global population has reached 7 billion and the baby boom generation reaches old age, thrombosis has become the major contributor to the global disease burden. It has been reported that, in moderate doses, beer may protect against thrombosis. Xanthohumol (XN), an antioxidant, is found at high concentrations in hop cones (Humulus lupulus L.) and is a common ingredient of beer. Here, the aim of the present work was to investigate the effects of XN on antithrombotic and antiplatelet activities, and study its mechanism.APPROACH AND RESULTS: Using ferric chloride-induced carotid artery injury, inferior vena cava ligation model, and platelet function tests, we demonstrated that XN uniquely prevents both venous and arterial thrombosis by inhibiting platelet activation. Interestingly, in tail bleeding time studies, XN did not increase bleeding risk, which is recognized as a major limitation of current antithrombotic therapies. We also demonstrated that XN induces Sirt1 expression and thereby decreases reactive oxygen species (ROS) overload, prevents mitochondrial dysfunction, and reduces activated platelet-induced mitochondrial hyperpolarization, respiratory disorders, and associated membrane damage at low concentrations. In mitochondrial function assays designed to detect amounts of extracellular mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), we found that XN prevents mtDNA release, which induces platelet activation in a DC-SIGN-dependent manner.CONCLUSIONS: XN exemplifies a promising new class of antiplatelet agents that are highly effective at inhibiting platelet activation by decreasing ROS accumulation and platelet mtDNA release without incurring a bleeding risk. This study has also provided novel insights into mechanisms of thrombotic diseases with possible therapeutic implications.

Dog Was Almost Shot Because He 'Didn't Want To Hunt' "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A young woman was out at an event in Ohio on October 18 when she overheard a man talking to a group of people about one of his dogs. He was saying the young beagle wouldnt hunt and how he was planning on shooting the dog because of that. 

Bewildered by the mans plans and desperate to help, the young woman immediately went up to him and asked him if she could try and find a rescue to take the dog in instead. The man agreed, and the woman quickly called her mom, who is active in the rescue world, and had her make a post on Facebook in hopes that the right person would see it and be able to help. 

Credit: Schenley Hutson Kirk

Schenley Hutson Kirk, founder of HOUND Rescue and Sanctuary, saw the post on Facebook and immediately responded, saying that if the man was willing to surrender the dog, later named Jeffrey, then she and her rescue would absolutely take him in. The young woman then went over to the mans home to collect Jeffrey, and found the 14-month-old pup living outside in a blue barrel filled with straw, suffering from a severe flea allergy. The poor dog was scared and yet so sweet, and eager to be held by his rescuer.

Jeffrey was transferred into the care of HOUND Rescue and Sanctuary the next day. He was checked over by a vet and, besides his flea allergy, was found to be in surprisingly good health, considering he had spent his entire life living outside. After he was examined and treated, Kirk took him home and got him all settled into his new foster home. Despite everything hed been through, Jeffrey was as sweet as could be from the very beginning, and wanted nothing more than to be held and loved by everyone around him.

West Africans Harrowing Journey to U.S. Underscores Immigration Shift "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

SALEM, Ore. The young man traversed Andean mountains, plains and cities in buses, took a harrowing boat ride in which five fellow migrants drowned, walked through thick jungle for days, and finally reached the U.S.-Mexico border.

Then Abdoulaye Camara, from the poor West African country of Mauritania, asked U.S. officials for asylum.

Camaras arduous journey highlights how immigration to the United States through its southern border is evolving. Instead of being almost exclusively people from Latin America, the stream of migrants crossing the Mexican border these days includes many who come from the other side of the world.

Almost 3,000 citizens of India were apprehended entering the U.S. from Mexico last year. In 2007, only 76 were. The number of Nepalese rose from just four in 2007 to 647 last year. More people from Africa are also seeking to get into the United States, with hundreds having reached Mexican towns across the border from Texas in recent weeks, according to local news reports from both sides of the border.

Camaras journey began more than a year ago in the small town of Toulel, in southern Mauritania. He left Mauritania, where slavery is illegal but still practiced, because its a country that doesnt know human rights, he said.

Camara was one of 124 migrants who ended up in a federal prison in Oregon after being detained in the U.S. near the border with Mexico in May, the result of the Trump administrations zero tolerance policy.

He was released Oct. 3, after he had passed his credible fear exam, the first step on obtaining asylum, and members of the community near the prison donated money for his bond. He was assisted by lawyers working pro bono.

My heart is so gracious, and I am so happy. I really thank my lawyers who got me out of that detention, Camara said in French as he rode in a car away from the prison.

Camaras journey was epic, yet more people are making similar treks to reach the United States. It took him from his village on the edge of the Sahara desert to Morocco by plane and then a flight to Brazil. He stayed there 15 months, picking apples in orchards and saving his earnings as best he could. Finally he felt he had enough to make it to the United States.

All that lay between him and the U.S. border was 6,000 miles (9,700 kilometers).

It was very, very difficult, said Camara, 30. I climbed mountains, I crossed rivers. I crossed many rivers, the sea.

Camara learned Portuguese in Brazil and could understand a lot of Spanish, which is similar, but not speak it very well. He rode buses through Brazil, Peru and Colombia. Then he and others on the migrant trail faced the most serious obstacle: the Darien Gap, a 60-mile (97-kilometer) stretch of roadl...

Xanthohumol improves dysfunctional glucose and lipid metabolism in diet-induced obese C57BL/6J mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Arch Biochem Biophys. 2016 06 1 ;599:22-30. Epub 2016 Mar 11. PMID: 26976708 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol improves dysfunctional glucose and lipid metabolism in diet-induced obese C57BL/6J mice. Abstract:  Xanthohumol (XN) is a prenylated flavonoid found in hops (Humulus lupulus) and beer. The dose-dependent effects of XN on glucose and lipid metabolism in a preclinical model of metabolic syndrome were the focus of our study. Forty-eight male C57BL/6J mice, 9 weeks of age, were randomly divided into three XN dose groups of 16 animals. The mice were fed a high-fat diet (60% kcal as fat) supplemented with XN at dose levels of 0, 30, or 60 mg/kg body weight/day, for 12 weeks. Dietary XN caused a dose-dependent decrease in body weight gain. Plasma levels of glucose, total triglycerides, total cholesterol, and MCP-1 were significantly decreased in mice on the 60 mg/kg/day treatment regimen. Treatment with XN at 60 mg/kg/day resultedin reduced plasma LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C), IL-6, insulin and leptin levels by 80%, 78%, 42%, and 41%, respectively, compared to the vehicle control group. Proprotein Convertase Subtilisin Kexin 9 (PCSK-9) levels were 44% lower in the 60 mg/kg dose group compared to the vehicle control group (p  0.05) which may account for the LDL-C lowering activity of XN. Our results show that oral administration of XN improves markers of systemic inflammation and metabolic syndrome in diet-induced obese C57BL/6J mice.

The Lewd, the Crude and the Ugly: Epsteins Sculpture "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

On the 10th of November 1880, sculptor Jacob Epstein was born in New York, yet he is best known as an English artist, having settled in Britain in 1905. As a Jewish American in Edwardian London working in a rough, stylised modernist manner, the critical reception of his work was far from friendly. Epstein has historically become the artist who suffered more abuse for his work than any other British artist, being very likely the Hirst or Emin of his day. His sculptures were called depraved and hideous especially as many were large pieces flanking important buildings in openly public spaces in London. His cool American background and creative stints in Paris where he met Picasso, Brncusi, Modigliani and was even given a recommendation letter by Rodin gave him a certain status which allowed him such exposure.

Epsteins career started off with a (crash and a) bang in 1908 as he received his first commission of 18 statuettes for the British Medical Association now decorating the second floor of Zimbabwe House in the Strand. In spite of the commissions solemn scope he was meant to pay homage to the great men of medicine Epstein, strongly influenced by Asian iconography, proceeded to carve Portland stone in situ into large naked figures. He entitled it The Ages of Man, noble and heroic forms to express in sculpture the great primal facts of man and woman.(Epstein in Evelyn Silber, Sir Jacob Epstein, Bucknell University Press, 1986). Contemporaries deemed them obscene, but equally shocking was the artists departure from traditional European iconography in favour of that of classical India, with especially the female figures adopting Buddhist and Hindu postures and gestures.

Early Bitcoin Pioneer Speculates Who Nakamoto Is, Gives $100 Million in Asset Away "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Jeff Garzik, an early pioneer of Bitcoin, has revealed that hes given away over $100 million worth of the asset, but has no regrets about it.

Giving Money to Something He Believes In

Garzik has been in the space since 2010 after reading a blog post about Bitcoin. Writing code for it, he soon became the third-biggest contributor to Bitcoin after Satoshi Nakamoto and Gavin Andresen.

However, in a report with Bloomberg, the Bitcoin pioneer notes that the currency is not what he thought it would be. Yet, despite this, hes proud of what has been achieved so far. So much so, that in a bid to spur software work on he gave 15,678 Bitcoins away about seven years ago in developer bounties. At current prices thats around $100 million.

Garzik recalls that when Bitcoin reached $1 in 2011 a party was held to celebrate the milestone, adding it was a question whether this thing would survive at all. And theres no question of that today.

Yet, while Nakamotos idea of Bitcoin being used as private money hasnt materialised yet, Garzik is fine with it being treated as a store of value.

It is an organism, its something that evolves, he added. It hasnt evolved in the direction of high-volume payments, which is something we thought about in the very early days: getting merchants to accept Bitcoins. But on the store-of-value side its unquestionably a success.

Will the Real Nakamoto Please Stand Up

Having worked closely, if only online, with Nakamoto, Garzik thinks he knows who it may be.

Speaking of the late Floridian Dave Kleiman, he said that this this gentleman was self taught and that it matches his coding style. He went on to add that:

the Bitcoin coder was someone who was very, very smart, but not a classically trained software engineer.

Xanthohumol induces generation of reactive oxygen species and triggers apoptosis in cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Free Radic Biol Med. 2015 Dec ;89:486-97. Epub 2015 Oct 8. PMID: 26453927 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol induces generation of reactive oxygen species and triggers apoptosis through inhibition of mitochondrial electron transfer chain complex I. Abstract:  Xanthohumol is a prenylflavonoid extracted from hops (Humulus lupulus). It possesses anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory activities in vitro and in vivo, and offers therapeutic benefits for treatment of metabolic syndromes. However, the precise mechanisms underlying its pharmacological effects remain to be elucidated, together with its cellular target. Here, we provide evidence that xanthohumol directly interacts with the mitochondrial electron transfer chain complex I (NADH dehydrogenase), inhibits the oxidative phosphorylation, triggers the production of reactive oxygen species, and induces apoptosis. In addition, we show that as a result of the inhibition of the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation, xanthohumol exposure causes a rapid decrease of mitochondrial transmembrane potential. Furthermore, we showed that xanthohumol up-regulates the glycolytic capacity in cells, and thus compensates cellular ATP generation. Dissection of the multiple steps of aerobic respiration by extracellular flux assays revealed that xanthohumol specifically inhibits the activity of mitochondrial complex I, but had little effect on that of complex II, III and IV. Inhibition of complex I by xanthohumol caused the overproduction of reactive oxygen species, which are responsible for the induction of apoptosis in cancer cells. We also found that isoxanthohumol, the structural isomer of xanthohumol, is inactive to cells, suggesting that the reactive 2-hydroxyl group of xanthohumol is crucial for its targeting to the mitochondrial complex I. Together, the remodeling of cell metabolism revealed here has therapeutic potential for the use of xanthohumol.

Pharmacological profile of xanthohumol, a prenylated flavonoid from hops (Humulus lupulus). "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Molecules. 2015 Jan 7 ;20(1):754-79. Epub 2015 Jan 7. PMID: 25574819 Abstract Title:  Pharmacological profile of xanthohumol, a prenylated flavonoid from hops (Humulus lupulus). Abstract:  The female inflorescences of hops (Humulus lupulus L.), a well-known bittering agent used in the brewing industry, have long been used in traditional medicines. Xanthohumol (XN) is one of the bioactive substances contributing to its medical applications. Among foodstuffs XN is found primarily in beer and its natural occurrence is surveyed. In recent years, XN has received much attention for its biological effects. The present review describes the pharmacological aspects of XN and summarizes the most interesting findings obtained in the preclinical research related to this compound, including the pharmacological activity, the pharmacokinetics, and the safety of XN. Furthermore, the potential use of XN as a food additive considering its many positive biological effects is discussed.

Xanthohumol improved cognitive flexibility in young mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Behav Brain Res. 2014 Dec 15 ;275:1-10. Epub 2014 Sep 1. PMID: 25192637 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol improved cognitive flexibility in young mice. Abstract:  The protein palmitoylation cycle has been shown to be important for protein signaling and synaptic plasticity. Data from our lab showed a change in the palmitoylation status of certain proteins with age. A greater percentage of the NMDA receptor subunits GluN2A and GluN2B, along with Fyn and PSD95 proteins, were palmitoylated in the old mice. The higher level of protein palmitoylation was also associated with poorer learning scores. Xanthohumol is a prenylated flavonoid that has been shown to increase beta-oxidation in the livers of rodents, decreasing circulating free fatty acids in the serum. What is not known is whether the application of xanthohumol could influence the palmitoylation status of proteins. In this study, young and old mice were fed a diet supplemented with xanthohumol for 8 weeks. Spatial memory was assessed with the Morris water maze and protein palmitoylation quantified. The young xanthohumol-treated mice showed a significant improvement in cognitive flexibility. However, this appeared to be associated with the young control mice, on a defined, phytoestrogen-deficient diet, performing as poorly as the old mice and xanthohumol reversing this effect. The old mice receiving xanthohumol did not significantly improve their learning scores. Xanthohumol treatment was unable to affect the palmitoylation of NMDA receptor subunits and associated proteins assessed in this study. This evidence suggests that xanthohumol may play a role in improving cognitive flexability in young animals, but it appears to be ineffective in adjusting the palmitoylation status of neuronal proteins in aged individuals.

Tiny Dog Was Going To Be Shot Because Shelter Thought No One Would Want Her "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

One look at Martha and rescuers knew she was special.

From the white tuft of fur on her head to her enormous brown eyes and permanent grin, the Chihuahua-maltese mix was one in a million.

But the little dog nearly didn't make it to safety.

Martha was picked up as a stray and brought to an overcrowded rural shelter in Australia, where staffers thought the kindest thing to do was put 12-year-old Martha out of her misery. Luckily, rescuers with Pets Haven Animal Shelter disagreed.

Martha was dumped in a high-kill pound, Pets Haven Animal Shelter wrote on Instagram. The ranger was going to shoot her as he didnt think anyone would want her.

Pets Haven rescuers pulled the little dog out of the shelter at the very last minute saving her from an untimely death. Finally safe, veterinarians discovered that Marthas missing patches of fur and itchy skin were the least of her issues.

A thorough workup revealed that Martha was suffering from a disorder known as dry eye and a severe heart murmur, and was entirely deaf. Martha needed such expensive and time-consuming treatment that the rescue deemed her unfit for adoption.

Crypto Community Responds to Fake Satoshis F**k You Email to Roger Ver "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Two of Bitcoin Cashs most high-profile supporters have fallen out over the pending BCH hard fork. Craig Fake Satoshi Wright sent an abusive email to Roger Ver earlier this week. Yesterday, Ver responded.

Ver Supports Bitcoin ABC, But Thinks the Whole Fork Dispute Could Resolve Itself

In a video posted to the Bitcoin.com YouTube channel, one of cryptocurrencys earliest proponents and investors, Roger Ver, has responded to an email sent from self-proclaimed Satoshi, Craig Wright.

The two early Bitcoin pioneers have each sided with one of the opposing camps in the November 15 hard fork (Ver is with ABC and Wright backs Bitcoin SV). Evidently, from the wording of the email, Wright strongly disapproves of Vers allegiance.

Ver opened the video by screen-sharing and reciting Wrights correspondence:

If you want a war

I will do 2 years of no trade. Nothing.

 

In the war, no coin can trade.

If you want ABC, you want shitcoins, welcome to bankruptcy.

 

It was nice knowing you.

Bitcoin will die before ABC shits on it. I will see BCH trade at 0 for a few years. Will you?

 

Side with ABC, you hate bitcoin, you are my enemy. You have no fucking idea what that means.

You will.

 

I AM Satoshi. Have a nice life. You will now discover me when pissed off.

And so. You could have had proof. Your choice.

Texas Judge Sanctions CPS $127K for Wrongfully Taking Couples Children and Lying to the Court "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Bright family Houston 2

There is joy in the Bright household after just rulings to sanction CPS. Photo: Michael Ciaglo, Houston Chronicle / Staff Photographer

Commentary by Terri LaPoint
Health Impact News

There are elements that are common almost to the point of being universal in cases involving children taken from their families by Child Protective Services, including false allegations, lying by social workers, falsified medical records, failure of social workers to follow their own policies, laws broken by CPS, and the failure to consider evidence that refutes CPS allegations.

However, there is one thing that remains rare in CPS cases that is, for anyone within the system to be held accountable. Repercussions for social workers, the CPS agency, or doctors involved in taking children from innocent parents are very rare.

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, a judge in Houston, Texas, called CPS on the carpet, issuing what the Houston Chronicle says:

may be the largest-ever sanctions against Child Protective Services, forcing the state to come up with new training for its workers and pay more than $127,000 for wrongfully removing a couples children and allegedly lying to the court about it.

This follows a decision that Judge Mike Schneider issued last month involving parents Melissa and Dillon Bright, the same family whose children were medically kidnapped by CPS and Texas Childrens Hospital.

A Portrait of Black Mental Health in Hues of Black and Blue "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Malik Roberts, It Couldnt Be Unseen (2018) (all photos by Erik Bardin and courtesy of ABXY Gallery)

Artist Malik Roberts has conceived a blue period of his own, drawing from the likes of Pablo Picasso to Renaissance sculpture, to undo mythologies and misconceptions surrounding mental health in the Black community. He bathes his figures in blues and blacks, warmed with dimensional highlights of red and orange, to evoke somber revelations of internal turmoil. Roberts is painting people and communities coming undone.

Malik Roberts, Blue for Many Reasons (2018)

In past work, Roberts used bright, polychromatic color schemes and celebrity figures, like Superman and Kim Jong Un, to comment on societal shortcomings and the infiltrating presence of popular culture. But in Blk & Blue at ABXY Gallery, Roberts more astutely explores the universality of anonymity, rendering characters who could stand in for anyone a cousin, a sibling, a parent, yourself. These people dont have names or identities, but you know who they are.

Roberts explores the ways PTSD, anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder manifest in communities afflicted by poverty, racism, broken windows policing, and violence. He recognizes mental health as a communal issue, as well as a personal one, by considering...

Novel research method reveals small-scale gold minings impact on Peruvian Amazon "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

According to research released yesterday, small-scale gold mining has led to the destruction of more than 170,000 acres of primary rainforest in the Peruvian Amazon over the past five years. Scientists based in Perus Madre de Dios region at Wake Forest Universitys Center for Amazonian Scientific Innovation (CINCIA) say theyve developed a new method for detecting artisanal-scale mining that is 20-25 percent more accurate than the tools used in the past. The researchers combined the CLASlite forest monitoring technology with Global Forest Change datasets on forest loss, both of which use lightwaves to identify changes in the landscape, to arrive at their estimate of rainforest destruction driven by small gold mining operations in Peru, which they say is 30 percent higher than previous estimates. An artisinal miner at work. Photo Credit: CINCIA. The scale of the deforestation is really shocking, Luis Fernandez, executive director of CINCIA, said in a statement. In 2013, the first comprehensive look at Peruvian rainforest lost from mining showed 30,000 hectares. Five years later, we have found nearly 100,000 hectares of deforested landscape. Artisanal miners dont exploit large veins of gold, instead collecting gold flakes from throughout the rainforest by stripping the land of trees or scooping up river sediment, then using toxic mercury to extract the precious metal. Though the environmental damage done by artisanal miners is extensive, it is also hard to detect remotely the miners leave behind a barren landscape of mercury-polluted ponds and sand dunes, which can resemble a natural wetlands

End of funding dims hopes for a Sumatran forest targeted by palm oil growers "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA Its name in Indonesian means hope, but there seems to be little of that remaining for the Harapan rainforest, a tropical woodland oasis in an ever-expanding desert of oil palm plantations in Sumatra. The Harapan rainforest is one of the last remaining expanses of lowland forest left on the island and could disappear in five years, swallowed up by encroaching palm plantations, after losing the main source of funding still keeping it on the map. Its demise would mean the loss of one of just 36 IUCN-recognized global biodiversity hotspots, and the end of a key habitat for nine globally threatened species, including Sumatran tigers, with a population of around 400, and Storms storks, the rarest of all storks, with fewer than 500 left in the wild. Since 2011, the Danish government has been the main funder keeping the Harapan rainforest alive, providing technical assistance and financial support to the tune of $12.7 million. The money is channeled through the NGO Burung Indonesia, the local affiliate of BirdLife International, to REKI, a private company established to manage the forest. Much of the funding is spent on patrolling the forest to prevent illegal encroachment by palm farmers. But the Danish government will cease its support at the end of this year, and theres no other source of funding in sight to fill the gap. Rasmus Abildgaard Kristensen, the Danish ambassador to Indonesia, says the decision to end the funding has nothing to do with the project itself. This has

Peru cracks down after environmental defenders murders "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Lambayaque, PERU Authorities in Peru late last month arrested a dozen alleged members of the notorious El Gran Chaparral criminal syndicate. The members were arrested on the charges of murder, land grabbing, and arson from setting forest fires in the Chaparr Ecological Reserve. Chaparr is the first recognized private nature reserve in Peru. The arrests took place on Oct. 26 as part of a pre-dawn raid by more than 300 police and organized crime officers in Perus northwestern Lambayeque region. Among those taken into custody were the alleged gang leader, Hiplito Cruzado Rafael, 62, and his sons, authorities said. Officers also raided 18 properties in connection with the case, the culmination on a nearly year-long investigation. The suspects are believed to be responsible for the torture and murder of Jos Napolen Tarrillo Astonitas, lieutenant-governor of the community of Muchik Santa Catalina de Chongoyape, in December 2017. Chongoyape was a prominent environmental defender. Theyre also implicated in the murders of three other community members Yrineo Martnez, Felicie Cherres Garrido and Jess Guerrero in October 2016. The gangs reign of terror over the past two years is tied to plans to build a reservoir that would fall inside the Chaparr reserves borders. Drawn by the promise of arable farmland conjured out of the arid landscape, hundreds of people have flocked to the area, invading the reserve, deforesting and burning the land, building illegal settlements, and growing crops. The Chaparr reserve was established by the Muchik Santa Catalina de Chongoyape community in

Man Spots A Cat Being Chased By The Most Unlikely Little Animal "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Claude Alff had just stepped out for a lunch break on Monday in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg, when he spotted a rat running up the street.

Though Alff rarely sees rats out in broad daylight, he brushed it off as nothing special and continued on his way. But this was no ordinary rodent.

As Alff crossed the street, he turned around and noticed he had company in the form of a small striped cat. Sensing an encounter was about to happen between the two animals, Alff whipped out his phone and started filming.

Credit: Claude Alff

As Alff expected, the cat ran to confront his would-be prey but then things got strange. Suddenly, the rat changed the game; fiercely facing off against a fluffy predator more than five times his size, the rodent refused to back down.

Credit: Claude Alff

Not only did the rat lunge and spook the cat, he chased the feline all the way down the street.

Alff couldnt help cheering for the brave rat. I didnt know what to expect when the cat was running over, Alff told The Dodo. I thought, Poor rat. But then when the cat was coming over, and the rat was running after him I thought that was just hilarious.

Alff realized what he had just witnessed was truly special, and uploaded the video on YouTube to share the unexpected moment with the world.

This is a jackpot, Alff said. It happens once in a lifetime, like winning the lottery.

After this, the old cat-and-mouse game will never be the same again.

Dog Does The Sweetest Thing Whenever Family Leaves The House "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Luna the bull terrier is happiest when shes close to her family like, really close.

And they are more than happy to lavish Luna with affection because they know the one thing she hates more than anything is being left alone.

But her dad, Justin Grosjean, wasnt aware of just how much Luna depended on her familys company until he came back from a trip to Home Depot last weekend.

Credit: IG/lunatheminibully

Luna, thinking she had been abandoned, collected not one, not two, but four of her parents shoes and brought them to her bed for comfort. When Grosjean walked in, he snapped a photo of the hilarious sight.

My wife and kids were out of town and I went to Home Depot for 30 minutes and came home to this, Grosjean wrote on Reddit. I think she panicked and thought we all left. Broke my heart."

Credit: IG/lunatheminibully

Grosjean and his wife adopted Luna in 2015 shortly after their wedding, and it didnt take long for the little dog to establish herself as the baby of the house. She was just a pup and truly our fur baby from day one, Grosjean said.

Lunas shoe fixation started as a chewing habit soon after joining the Grosjean family, and the pup has since developed quite a collection, Grosjean noted.

Investor Lawsuit Brought Against AT&T, T-Mobile for SIM Swapping Hacks "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Swim Swap Lawsuit

Leading cryptocurrency investor law firm Silver Miller Law has filed suit against cell phone giants AT&T and T-Mobile on behalf of several digital asset investors who were victims of the identity-theft tactic known as SIM swapping. The suit alleges that both companies possessed flaws in their security systems and failed to properly train their employees to work against hackers seeking to gain access to users smartphones.

SIM swapping occurs when a hacker gathers information on a potential victim, such as their phone password, answers to their security questions and their financial holdings. Once they have the data they need, the hacker will contact the persons cell phone provider and claim that their SIM card has been lost or damaged and request that a new one be activated, with the end goal of accessing the victims finances in this case, cryptocurrency.

The lawyers at Silver Miller Law claim that many of their clients had their crypto wallets drained via SIM swapping techniques, including one individual an AT&T holder who had roughly $621,000 stolen despite the phone companys assurances that security had been beefed up following an earlier hack attempt on his account. Two other instances involved T-Mobile clients, who were ultimately robbed of $400,000 and $250,000 respectively.

This is not the only SIM jacking case brought against AT&T the mobile carrier is also the subject of a separate $224 million lawsuit brought on by Michael Terpin, the founder of angel investment group BitAngels. Terpin claims that the companys weak security protocols led to his loss of roughly $24 million in crypto funds through two separate SIM swap attacks.

In a deposition filed in August, Terpin claims that the hackers obtained access to his phone number with the help of an AT&T customer service representative. The hackers were then able to access his cryptocurrency wallet and steal funds.

Terpin states, What AT&T did was like a hotel giving a thief with a fake ID a room key and a key to the room safe to steal jewelry in the safe from the rightful owner. He is now seeking roughly $200 million in damages.

Silver Miller Law has developed a reputation in the space for bringing investor-le...

This Little 'Spider' With The Face Of A Dog Is Freaking People Out "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Deep in the rainforests of Ecuador, there lives a creature that looks like it jumped out of a book on mythical animals and its only the size of a thumbnail.

With eight spindly yellow legs holding up what appears to be a big black dogs head, the bunny harvestman is both terrifying and oddly cute.

The rabbit-like ears and yellow markings, which resemble glowing eyes, all add to the creatures wolflike appearance, and people cant quite believe he's real.

In fact, theyre kind of freaked out.

Though the little creature looks like a spider, he technically belongs to the same order of arachnid as daddy longlegs (who are also harvestmen). This makes him a cousin of the spider which may explain his tendency to scuttle around in very spiderlike fashion.

Nearly 60 years after the bunny harvestmans discovery by Carl Friedrich Roewer, scientists are still not entirely sure how the rare little creature got his unique look.

One prevailing theory is that the animals adorable ears and large head are meant to make it look more threatening to predators, notes Andreas Kay, a scientist and photographer who caught the creature on film in July 2017. Maybe the eye spots and ear-like protuberances are meant to fool predators into thinking the creature is larger than it really is, Kay explains in a blog post.

If you do ever come across one of these little guys dont worry. As their sweet doglike head suggests, bunny harvestmen are not venomous, and pose no threat to humans whatsoever.

Xanthohumol induces growth inhibition and apoptosis of human liver cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Rep. 2016 Feb ;35(2):669-75. Epub 2015 Nov 26. PMID: 26718026 Abstract Title:  Anticancer effect of xanthohumol induces growth inhibition and apoptosis of human liver cancer through NF-B/p53-apoptosis signaling pathway. Abstract:  Xanthohumol may prevent and cure diabetes and atherosis, have oxidation resistance and antiviral function as well as anticancer effect preventing cancer cell metastasis. We investigate whether the anticancer effect of xanthohumol induces growth inhibition and apoptosis of human liver cancer through NF-B/p53-apoptosis signaling pathway. Human liver cancer HepG2 cell were treated with 10, 20, 30 and 40 M xanthohumol for 48 h. The present study showed that the anticancer effect of xanthohumol was effective in inhibiting proliferation and inducing apoptosis of human liver cancer HepG2 cells. Furthermore, the caspase-3 activity of human liver cancer HepG2 cells was increased by xanthohumol. In addition, 48-h treatment with xanthohumol suppressed NF-B expression and promoted p53, cleaved PARP, AIF and cytochrome c expression and downregulated XIAP and Bcl-2/Bax expression in human liver cancer HepG2 cells. Therefore, the anticancer effect of xanthohumol induces growth inhibition and apoptosis of human liver cancer through the NF-B/p53-apoptosis signaling pathway.

Texas Judge Sanctions CPS $127K for Wrongfully Taking Couples Children and Lying to the Court "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Commentary by Terri LaPoint
Health Impact News

There are elements that are common almost to the point of being universal in cases involving children taken from their families by Child Protective Services, including false allegations, lying by social workers, falsified medical records, failure of social workers to follow their own policies, laws broken by CPS, and the failure to consider evidence that refutes CPS allegations.

However, there is one thing that remains rare in CPS cases that is, for anyone within the system to be held accountable. Repercussions for social workers, the CPS agency, or doctors involved in taking children from innocent parents are very rare.

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, a judge in Houston, Texas, called CPS on the carpet, issuing what the Houston Chronicle says:

may be the largest-ever sanctions against Child Protective Services, forcing the state to come up with new training for its workers and pay more than $127,000 for wrongfully removing a couples children and allegedly lying to the court about it.

This follows a decision that Judge Mike Schneider issued last month involving parents Melissa and Dillon Bright, the same family whose children were medically kidnapped by CPS and Texas Childrens Hospital.

Xanthohumol ameliorates lipopolysaccharide induced acute lung injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Redox Biol. 2017 08 ;12:311-324. Epub 2017 Mar 2. PMID: 28285192 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol ameliorates lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced acute lung injury via induction of AMPK/GSK3-Nrf2 signal axis. Abstract:  Abundant natural flavonoids can induce nuclear factor-erythroid 2 related factor 2 (Nrf2) and/or AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) activation, which play crucial roles in the amelioration of various inflammation- and oxidative stress-induced diseases, including acute lung injury (ALI). Xanthohumol (Xn), a principal prenylflavonoid, possesses anti-inflammation and anti-oxidant activities. However, whether Xn could protect from LPS-induced ALI through inducing AMPK/Nrf2 activation and its downstream signals, are still poorly elucidated. Accordingly, we focused on exploring the protective effect of Xn in the context of ALI and the involvement of underlying molecular mechanisms. Our findings indicated that Xn effectively alleviated lung injury by reduction of lung W/D ratio and protein levels, neutrophil infiltration, MDA and MPO formation, and SOD and GSH depletion. Meanwhile, Xn significantly lessened histopathological changes, reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation, several cytokines secretion, and iNOS and HMGB1 expression, and inhibited Txnip/NLRP3 inflammasome and NF-B signaling pathway activation. Additionally, Xn evidently decreased t-BHP-stimulated cell apoptosis, ROS generation and GSH depletion but increased various anti-oxidative enzymes expression regulated by Keap1-Nrf2/ARE activation, which may be associated with AMPK and GSK3 phosphorylation. However, Xn-mediated inflammatory cytokines and ROS production, histopathological changes, Txnip/NLRP3 inflammasome and NF-B signaling pathway in WT mice were remarkably abrogated in Nrf2mice. Our experimental results firstly provided a support that Xn effectively protected LPS-induced ALI against oxidative stress and inflammation damage which are largely dependent upon upregulation of the Nrf2 pathway via activation of AMPK/GSK3, thereby suppressing LPS-activated Txnip/NLRP3 inflammasome and NF-B signaling pathway.

Christopher Columbus Statue to be Removed from Grand Park in Los Angeles on Saturday "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Monument to be removed while Native American-led effort decides on replacement

LOS ANGELES Crews on Saturday morning will remove a bronze statue from Grand Park depicting Christopher Columbus, Councilmember Mitch OFarrell and the Los Angeles City/County Native American Indian Commission announced today.

Christopher Columbus statue to be removed Saturday.

The community is invited to gather for a news conference and removal of the statue on Saturday, November 10, beginning at 8:30 a.m., near the Stanley Mosk Courthouse between Hill Street and Grand Avenue, at Grand Park in downtown Los Angeles. The statue is scheduled to be removed at 10 a.m.

Councilmember OFarrell, along with Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, the Los Angeles City-County Native American Indian Commission, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and the Los Angeles County Commission on Human Relations have been working together, in collaboration with the Native American community, to remove the monument from Grand Park.

The move comes on the heels of the inaugural Indigenous Peoples Day celebration in Los Angeles city and county, the largest jurisdictions to officially modify their administrative code and replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples Day as an official holiday. Los Angeles County has the largest urban Indigenous population in the entire country.

Native Trailblazers, or In Search of 500 Brave Native Americans "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"


Grandson Will, age 8, sings along to Pete Seeger at the top of his lungs:

Tis advertised in Boston, New York, and Buffalo.
500 brave Native Americans
A whalin for to go

Hes got the lyrics wrong; its "500 brave Americans," and I smile because hes adorable. But then I think, "Wait, though! 500. Brave. Native Americans!"  

In US history classes, kids like Will hear about the bravery of non-Native "explorers"/"discoverers"/Pilgrims/settlers/revolutionaries/pioneers/frontiersmen/the US cavalry.
Sure, they may hear Indigenous men referred to as braves. But will they learn about 500 specific, courageous Native people? Or 100? Or even five?

You know whose names theyll hear, of course Pocahontas. Squanto. Sacagawea. Crazy Horse, Sitting Bull, Geronimo. In other words, theyll learn about some Native people who are viewed as helpful to the colonizers, and some of the ones who fought colonization of their homelands. Will (who's now 12) tells me that he and his classmates definitely dont hear about contemporary Native people whose courage and commitment make a difference NOW in their communities and in the wider world. 

But we know that all kids benefit from the affirmation that Native people ARE STILL HERE and are deeply INVOLVED in the heavy lifting to make the world a better place. It would be Something if, by the time they graduated high school, every student in the US could name a couple dozen Indigenous people who've made a positive difference.  

Native kids, of course, may have first-hand knowledge of family members who are writers, artists, activists, scientists, and so on. But it's challenging to find reliable information for young people about noteworthy contemporary Native people. Biographies tend to be problematic. Most are not the work of Native writers. Though supposedly factual, they often contain the same biased language and distorted window on Native lives often seen in fiction. And they're usually about figures in the distant past.

Landlord Tries To Evict Tenant And Finds Someone Waiting In The Bathtub "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Evicting a tenant can be stressful for landlords but one vacant apartment in Kansas City, Missouri, had a surprise inside that not even the most seasoned owner could have expected.

The apartment wasnt exactly vacant, it turned out: There was a 6-foot-long, 150-pound alligator relaxing inside the hot tub.

The tenant had been keeping the alligator, whose name was Catfish, as a pet illegally, according to city workers who responded to the landlords frazzled call for help.

The workers also found two boa constrictors and some rabbits in the apartment, who were later transferred to local rescues.

The tenant, Sean Casey, told the Kansas City Star that hed had Catfish for four years, and that the gator was a big and cuddly lizard. He smiled all the time.

Column: Our Lady of Guadalupe "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Pagan Perspectives


Todays column comes to us from Jaime Girons, a long-time contributor to The Wild Hunt based in Mexico City. Jaimes column was the first Pagan column to regularly be published in both Spanish and English, and led TWH to expand its team of international columnists to cover more of the worlds Pagan voices.

Tambin est disponible en espaol.

The Wild Hunt always welcomes submissions for our weekend section. Please send queries or completed pieces to eric@wildhunt.org.


The time when the veil between the worlds becomes thinner and we honor our ancestors has just passed; now we are almost a month away from the winter holidays. In Mexico, celebrations begin on December 12, the day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. According to the Catholic tradition, from December 9 to December 12 in the year 1531, the Virgin of Guadalupe appeared to Juan Diego, later to become the first indigenous Catholic saint from the Americas. On the 12th, many schools and businesses close, and many people take the day off. Millions from all the corners of the country make a pilgrimage to a shrine, the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe on the Hill of Tepeyac, in the north of Mexico City. There, they pray to her, express their gratitude, and sing to wish her a happy birthday.

It is expected to see that this celebration is taken online, so every year around this day there are constant posts on my social media feeds of people expressing their love towards the Virgin of Guadalupe. What is less expected, however, is to see offensive comments towards these posts. For example, I have observed people new to Paganism or Wicca proudly sharing their first altars, where they have placed the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe that has been with their families all their lives, and furious Pagans or Witches reply to the post, saying, That is not a Pagan altar!, That is not a Goddess! It becomes a diatribe on something that should never have been open to debate, an individuals altar being an expression of their own spiritual love and worship.

I find many of these comments invasive and disrespectful. First, we all have a personal relationship with the concept of deity. Second, we do not all share the same practices and beliefs. Third, and most important, what Our Lady of Guadalupe represents extends beyond Catholicism.

Square Generates $43 Million in Bitcoin Revenue in Q3, Profits Reach $500,000 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Mobile payments and merchant services provider Square, Inc. has revealed its Q3 revenue report, and with it has shared some positive growth in Bitcoin-related revenue.

Square Shows Steady Continued Growth in Bitcoin Revenue

According to Squares third quarter 2018 revenue report, the mobile payment firm generated $431 million in adjusted net revenue beating FactSet analyst projections of $414 million. The growth represents a 68% year-over-year increase of adjusted revenue. Total net revenue reached $882 million in Q3 2018, representing 51% year-over-year growth.

Of the $882 million in net revenue, Bitcoin-related transactions generated $43 million in revenue for Square in the third quarter of the year, up $6 million from the $37 million generated in Q2. Bitcoin-related profits were also up, reaching over $500,000 for Q3.

In Squares Q3 earnings report, the company highlights why it doesnt include Bitcoin in its adjusted revenue figures, suggesting the companys goal is simply to expose customers to Bitcoin for the time being.

We deduct Bitcoin costs because we consider our role in the Bitcoin transactions to be facilitating customer access to Bitcoin. Since we only apply a small margin to the market cost of Bitcoin when we sell Bitcoin to customers, and we have no control over the cost of Bitcoin in the market, which tends to be volatile, we believe deducting Bitcoin costs is a better reflection of the economic benefits as well as the Companys performance from the Bitcoin transactions, the report read.

Bitcoin was added to the Square Cash app last November for testing, then rolled out to its wider customer base in January of this year, allowing users to send, buy, and sell the leading cryptocurrency by market cap.

El tiempo cuando el velo entre los Mundos es ms delgado y honramos nuestros ancestros acaba de pasar, estamos a casi un mes de las fiestas de invierno. En Mxico, las celebraciones inician el 12 de diciembre, da de Nuestra Seora de Guadalupe. Segn la tradicin catlica, del 9 al 12 diciembre de 1531 la Virgen de Guadalupe se apareci a Juan Diego. En este da, muchas escuelas y negocios cierran, mucha gente se toma el da libre y desde todos los rincones del pas millones peregrinan a su templo, la Baslica de Nuestra Seora de Guadalupe en el cerro del Tepeyac, al norte de la Ciudad de Mxico. Ah le rezan, le expresan su gratitud y le cantan las maanitas.

Es de esperar ver esta celebracin llevada a las redes sociales, por lo que cada ao alrededor de este da veo constantes publicaciones de personas expresando su amor hacia la Virgen de Guadalupe. Sin embargo, lo que no es de esperar es ver comentarios ofensivos hacia estas publicaciones. Por ejemplo, alguien nuevo al Paganismo o la Wicca que orgullosamente comparte su primer altar donde puso la imagen de la Virgen de Guadalupe que ha estado en su familia toda su vida; y paganos o brujos respondiendo a la publicacin diciendo enfadados Ese no es un altar pagano!, Esa no es una Diosa!; y una discusin inicia alrededor de algo que no debera haber estado abierto a debate, siendo una expresin de amor espiritual y devocin.

Muchos de estos comentarios me parecen invasivos e irrespetuosos. Primero, todos tenemos una relacin personal con la divinidad. Segundo, no todos compartimos las mismas prcticas y creencias. Tercero y principalmente, lo que este smbolo representa va ms all del catolicismo.

The Drug Catastrophe in Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This article was originally published by Brian Cloughley at Strategic Culture Foundation

On November 5 yet another US soldier was killed by a member of Afghanistans military forces, as the country continues to be wracked by violence in its seventeenth year of war.

Donald Rumsfeld was US Secretary for Defence from 2001 to 2006 under President George W Bush. They, along with other psychotic figures such as Vice-President Dick Cheney, were responsible for the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, and their legacy is apparent in many spheres, one of which is the drug production bonanza in Afghanistan.

In August 2004 NBC News reported Secretary Rumsfeld as declaring The danger a large drug trade poses in Afghanistan is too serious to ignore. The inevitable result is to corrupt the government and way of life, and that would be most unfortunate. He issued the warning that It is increasingly clear to the international community that to address the drug problem here is important for the people of Afghanistan.

Rumsfeld, for once during his catastrophic years as chief war-maker, was absolutely right, and his pronouncement about likely danger and impending corruption was spot on. The US invasion and subsequent operations led to Afghanistan becoming the fourth most dangerous and fourth most corrupt country in the world.

The drug problem to which he referred has expanded rapidly over the years. It is destroying Afghanistan. It is a main reason for the place being ungovernable.

Its all very well to blame Afghans for growing poppies and producing opium and heroin, but what they are doing i...

How to run a successful Design Sprint "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Design Sprints can generate remarkable output for your companysuch as a backlog of impactful ideas, functional prototypes, learnings and key insights from customers along with real business opportunities.

Consider this situation: your company needs to solve a major real-world problemyou need a novel solution, better than any other offering available in the market. You could be aiming for a product, a component, a system, a service or a process.

In an ideal scenario, before making any investments, you would need the set of candidate solutions, prototyped and exposed to a controlled set of real users. This would enable enough signals and insights to make informed decisions and setup a better product development strategy.

To get therefrom a problem to functional prototypes enriched with customer feedbackyou can follow standard paths. For example you can consult the experts in your organization, assign work-streams to different teams, coordinate the work, schedule brainstorming meetings, and wait in the queue to get UI designs and then to develop prototypesa lengthy process with several drawbacks, dependencies, issues and risks.

Or, you can setup a powerful multidisciplinary team and lock it in a room for a few days, with a clear goal: a shortlist of inexpensive, realistic prototypes of selected high-potential concepts, each enriched with feedback from real users.

A rapid innovation process outputting potential solutions to your problem and evidence from real users on how effective they are.

This intense ideation and prototyping process comes in several forms and variationsa popular one being the Design Sprint, which promises Solutions to big problems in just five days. It uses design thinking principles and introduces several techniques, tools and rules.

The success factors

To get real value from a Design Sprint, you must emphasize on the right setup, preparation and readinessor you may end up hosting an expensive multi-day brainstorming session outputting just noise.

Having joined a large number of ideation and prototyping sessions along with 10s of formal Design Sprints, I would summarize the critical aspects and success factors in the following way.

Xanthohumol inhibits proliferation of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Lett. 2016 Dec ;12(6):5289-5294. Epub 2016 Oct 25. PMID: 28105237 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol inhibits proliferation of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma. Abstract:  Xanthohumol is a flavonoid compound that exhibits antioxidant and anticancer effects, and is used to treat atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of xanthohumol on the cell proliferation of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma and to understand the mechanism of its action. The effects of xanthohumol on the cell viability and apoptosis rate of laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma SCC4 cells were assessed by Annexin V-fluorescein isothiocyanate/propidium iodide staining. In addition, the expression levels of pro-apoptotic proteins, caspase-3, caspase-8, caspase-9, poly ADP ribose polymerase (PARP) p53 and apoptosis-inducing factor (AIF), as well as anti-apoptotic markers, B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) and myeloid cell leukemia 1 (Mcl-1), were analyzed by western blotting. The results revealed that treatment with 40M xanthohumol significantly inhibited the proliferation of SCC4 cells. Furthermore, xanthohumol treatment (40 M) induced SCC4 cell apoptosis, as indicated by the significant increase in activity and expression of caspase-3, caspase-8, caspase-9, PARP, p53 and AIF. By contrast, the protein expression of Bcl-2 and Mcl-1 was significantly decreased following treatment with 40 M xanthohumol. Taken together, the results of the present study indicated that xanthohumol mediates growth suppression and apoptosis induction, which was mediated via the suppression of Bcl-2 and Mcl-1 and activation of PARP, p53 and AIF signaling pathways. Therefore, future studies that investigate xanthohumol as a potential therapeutic agent for laryngeal squamous cell carcinoma are required.

Early Win for Shrem: Judge Unfreezes Assets in Winklevoss Lawsuit "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

shrem winklevoss

In a short-term win for bitcoin advocate Charlie Shrem, a federal judge has lifted the freeze on Shrems financial accounts in an ongoing legal battle against the Winklevoss twins.

Shrems financial accounts and assets were temporarily frozen via an attachment order following the suits initial filing. The order allowed the U.S. Marshall for the Southern District to freeze Shrems assets, instructing cryptocurrency companies like Coinbase and Xapo and legacy financial institutions to freeze Shrems assets up to $30 million, the amount the Winklevosses are seeking in damages.

However, following a hearing on Thursday, November 8, 2019, presiding Judge Jed S. Rakoff issued a court order lifting the freeze. 

After careful consideration, the Court denies plaintiffs motion to confirm the order of attachment and therefore lifts the attachment currently in place effective immediately, the order reads.

The document concludes by saying that an opinion will be issued in due course explaining why a freeze was unnecessary for the initial proceedings to continue.

Earlier this month, Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss of the Gemini Exchange in New York filed a suit against Charlie Shrem for 5,000 BTC after Shrem reportedly made several high-value purchases following his release from prison.

Shrem has claimed he went to prison penniless, reportedly working as a dishwasher for several months after his release before returning to the bitcoin space. Shrems self-reported poverty has lead the community to question where he dug up the funds for his luxury shopping spree.

The Winklevosses believe that these purchases were made with bitcoin Shrem stole from the twins when they hired him to manage their initial cryptocurrency investments in 2012.

The working relationship was troubled when Shrem allegedly mismanaged roughly $60,000 of bitcoin. At the time, bitcoin was worth approximately $12.50, so the $60,000 would be equal to about 5,000 BTC. The twins say theyve hired a pr...

Demystifying Open Source Contributions "IndyWatch Feed Education"

This quick guide is mainly for first-time contributors and people who want to start helping open source projects.

As an author and maintainer of a bunch of open source projects, I appreciate hearing and seeing my projects being used. And I even love it when other developers step in and offer their help to fix and improve my projects.

In this quick guide, Id like to show you how easy it is to start contributing to any open source project. Trust me, its basically a no-brainer!

Ill assume youre already familiar with Git. If thats not the case, here is a complete guide for you.

Identify the project you want to work on

First things first, start by identifying the project thats close to your heart, or the one that you feel comfortable contributing to. I usually advise first-time contributors to start with the projects of the tools they use on their everyday job. It would make it easier to contribute to these tools since you are familiar with them and you may be already aware of some issues or missing features you want to help fix or improve.

At the same time, there is really nothing stopping you from choosing any random project youd like to contribute to. Some people choose a project based on the technology they use, other choose a project with no particular reason, just for a challenge!

Its up to you. Just pick one!

Fork the project

You need to fork the project to your GitHub account (assuming you are using GitHub) before you start contributing. This process will basically copy the upstream project to your own GitHub projects, so you can have your own copy of the project to work on.

Clone and install the dependencies

The next step would be to clonedownloadthe project you just cloned to your local machine so you can start workinghacking.

If youre mainly working on documentation, translation, or fixing typos, this is something you can definitely do directly from your browser. No need to clone the project locally. However, if the project requires you run a build step for the documentation, or running a formatting process on the documentation itself before pushing your changes, then you will have to clone the project locally and install the required dependencies.

Once you have the project cloned locally, you need to make sure to carefully read the...

Valeriana officinalis root extract modulates cortical excitatory circuits in humans. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Neuropsychobiology. 2017 ;75(1):46-51. Epub 2017 Oct 17. PMID: 29035887 Abstract Title:  Valeriana officinalis Root Extract Modulates Cortical Excitatory Circuits in Humans. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Valeriana officinalis extract (VE) is a popular herbal medicine used for the treatment of anxiety and sleep disorders. Although the anxiolytic and sedative effects are mainly attributed to the modulation of GABA-ergic transmission, the mechanism of action has not been fully investigated in humans. Noninvasive brain stimulation protocols can be used to elucidate the mechanisms of action of psychoactive substances at the cortical level in humans. In this study, we investigated the effects of a single dose of VE on cortical excitability as assessed with transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS).METHODS: Fifteen healthy volunteers participated in a double-blind, randomized, cross-over, placebo-controlled study. Subjects were required to take either 900 mg of VE (valerenic acid 0.8%) or placebo (an equal dose of vitamin E). Motor cortex excitability was studied by single and paired TMS before and at 1 h and 6 h after the oral administration. Cortical excitability was assessed using different TMS parameters: resting motor threshold, motor-evoked potential amplitude, cortical silent period, short-interval intracortical inhibition, and intracortical facilitation. Furthermore, we assessed sensorimotor integration by short-latency and long-latency afferent inhibition.RESULTS: We found a significant reduction in ICF, without any significant changes in other TMS measures of motor cortex excitability. The amount of ICF returned to baseline value 6 h after the intake of the VE.CONCLUSION: A single oral dose of VE modulates intracortical facilitatory circuits. Our results in healthy subjects could be predictive markers of treatment response in patients and further support the use of pharmaco-TMS to investigate the neuropsychiatric effects of herbal therapies in humans.

Rebuttal to Megan Doodle Pro-Vax Nurse "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Viral provax posts often make the rounds but this week I was motivated to respond to one. The posts message wasnt new, its a narrative based on misinformation and logical fallacies that gets rehashed year after year. What really rubbed me the wrong way was the authors attitude - egotistical, selfish, demanding, and vindictive.


The author, a nurse named Megan Doodle (yes thats her name, pictured above) stated:
"I think that people who dont want to vaccinate should have the freedom to do so. If they think that 'Big pharma' is just trying to turn a profit or poison us all... they should be allowed to believe that. But the caveat to that is this: Then they should NOT be allowed go to the doctor or the hospital when they get sick, looking for treatment. Thats right."
"Big pharma makes those antibiotics we are going to pump you full of when you are about to die from sepsis. The steroids and epi we might give you to save your life from your anaphylaxis? Yep, big pharma is behind that too. That inhaler you need to treat your kid's asthma? Better pass on that as well, because ... you guessed it ... brought to you by Big P. Having a heart attack? Better break out your essential oils and get your affairs in order, because the only thing we have to offer you is medicine and procedures brought to you by the very same people who are responsible for those vaccines you insist are evil."

The basic gist of Megans post was, if you dont trust Big Pharma why use ANY of their products? Im happy to answer that.

First, it needs to be said that from a logical point of view Megans argument is a hot mess. Her most glaring logic fail is the Fallacy of False Dilemma - when something is falsely claimed to be an "either/or" situation.

Megan is proposing that people either choose to accept ALL pharmaceutical products... or NONE. I think we can all agree this is stupidly unethical. Imagine a medical professional holding you to ransom, either you agree to let me use ANY pharmaceutical product I want on you, or you get NONE!

Owen Geiger was a Man of Many Accomplishments "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

I first met Owen Geiger at a Natural Building Colloquium in New Mexico in 2000. At that point he was already deeply committed to finding affordable and ecological housing solutions for people around the planet. He had been working with Habitat for Humanity building straw bale houses in Colorado. He had gotten a Ph.D. in Social and Economic Development, and was an early Director of Builders Without Borders. He co-authored the Builders Without Borders Straw-Bale Construction Guides and contributed to Building Without Borders: Sustainable Construction for the Global Village.

Owens background includes years of experience as a licensed contractor building, training employees and volunteers, and overseeing dozens of projects. He was a skilled craftsman and cabinet maker and was very adept at design work. He especially enjoyed designing efficient kitchens.

Dr. Geiger consulted on numerous international housing projects and mentored housing officials with the United Nations Institute of Training and Research. He founded the Geiger Research Institute of Sustainable Building and developed a certification program for straw bale construction. He developed a partnership with the US Military Academy at West Point where some testing was done related to earthbag construction.

In 2005 Owen fell in love with Thailand and decided to live there permanently. Along with continuing to pursue his interests in natural building, he taught English as a second language at several learning centers in Thailand. He established a close relationship with a Thai family and experimented with several earthbag projects on their property.  Owen also established a productive food forest and became an advocate for sustainable agriculture.

Owen was a correspondent for The Last Straw Journal as well as Mother Earth News. He and I launched www.earthbagbuilding.com as a way to reach more people around the world with information about this particularly sustainable approach to building. Soon after this we created an earthbag building blog, which morphed into the current www.naturalbuildingblog.com where Owen and I have shared the responsibility of posting relevant material. Owen especially enjoyed this blogging activity and was the primary...

How I analyzed the data from my FitBit to improve my overall health "IndyWatch Feed Education"

It turns out that data can keep you healthy

Photo Credit: Franki Chamaki on Unsplash

Physical activity trackers have become a multimillion-dollar product category. I have had my fair share of fancy trackers, starting early from Nike Fuelband and then MI activity band. Personally, I couldnt adopt any of them very well and eventually, they all ended up being a fancy digital watch which needed a re-charge every few days in order for them to tell the correct time.

And then, a few months back, I was gifted a Fitbit Versa by a friend of mine. Something clicked. Why?

A lot had happened since I gave up the idea of health bands being effective. When I received this gift, I was at a stage where I was glued to a chair and my laptop. As a result, I had a severe problem of back pain and postural imbalance. The wrongdoing of many years could not be fixed in just days or weeks. Fighting an arduous battle against sitting, which is now considered by many as the new smoking, I became mindful about my posture and the idea of maintaining an active lifestyle.

So, I thought of giving Fitbit a clean slate and tried it for a week. The Fitbit app did a pretty good job of capturing and showcasing the data in a consumable format.

Activity, calorie burn and sleep analysis on the Fitbit app.

It had been two weeks since my break up with my mechanical watch. Intrigued by the sheer variety of data points Fitbit could capture, an urge began to see what lies hidden behind the data.

The experimentation cycle. Src

I soon began an experiment to see how well I could keep up with the goals that I had defined. I also wanted to know if there were any extraneous factors which influenced these goals. Finally, I wanted to uncover any hidden and interesting findings along the way. I was particularly interested to discover:

This Is Just Who I Am, Says Man Who Apparently Always Has A Huge Bus Drive Around With His Mug On It "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

morrison

Campaigning? Mate, this is just who I am, says Prime Minister Scott Morrison, confirming that he actually always has a bus with a giant pic of his mug and campaign slogans drive around the state of Queensland while he flies about in a tax-payer-funded jet.

Answering a question from The (un)Australian about whether he has actually started the run-in to the next federal election a little early, the slightly aggro PM sculls another XXXX Gold tinnie and spits: Cobber, you mob in the Canberra bubble may not have noticed, but Im just a fair dinkum Aussie bloke, righto?

Ripping open another can while re-adjusting his latest Australian company-branded cap, the PM, looking disturbingly like he might actually nut our journalist, goes on: Crikey, if a bloke cant jump on a private jet to go have natter with a bunch of other true-blue hard-working Aussie blokes who just wanna have a go without being accused of cynically putting on an act in a desperate bid to limit a likely electoral wipe-out, then what country are we fair dinkum in?

Why Many Experts Say a Global Venezuela Event is Inevitable "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 

It began in 1913 when the Revenue Act was passed under extremely questionable conditions during the Christmas vacation time for the Congress. At that time Philander Knox, former lawyer for several of the rich elite families and acting Senator of Pennsylvania at the time took up a vote to bring the Federal Reserve central Bank back into power and enact income taxes. Keep in mind this was the equivalent of an attempted recess appointment with few representatives that were present on Capitol Hill.

Anatomy of deceit

As Philander Knox took a vote count of available state representatives many opted to pass, which did not mean to approve but only to say that they would not make a decision at this time, regardless, according to sources, Knox counted these pronouncements as a vote in favor of. The 16th Amendment made an unprecedented move that violated the intentions of the original founders of our nation which had been never to tax wages or earning of individual citizens as this was an un-apportioned tax that did not accurately apply according to equal duty allowing for population distribution of the tax burden. The founding fathers had already gotten a taste of taxation without representation thanks to the impositions by the British occupation and never wanted citizens to be burdened as such again.

True impact

President Andrew Jackson had abolished the European Central Bank in the US for 75 years and had survived many assassination attempts ordered by the European banking families, but Old Hickory survived and America flourished under the formation of independent banks using gold and silver as supporting assets to back US currency. As America grew and also fostered international trade so did its prestige and influence without the need of a central bank controlling the monetary and credit policies that, in the future would cause great calamity in US markets!

Formation of bondage

However, thanks to President Woodrow Wilson, a progressive and an advocate of Eugenics, the Revenue Act of 1913 was allowed to be proposed, and under the aegis of being essential to the stability of money supply and credit availability, without the knowledge of the American people, fiscal enslavement of our banking and currency was achieved. In the hands of a few elite cartel of foreign banking families the fiscal control of America had been deceptively attained. Not only that, but according to their founding charter, the American tax payer would be...

Woman Barred from the Louvre for Her Attire "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

An Australian witch in Paris, photos from the Instagram stream of @mewsha, who was banned from entering the Louvre this week on the basis of her outfit (all images via the Instagram stream of Newsha Syeh)

Earlier this week, Australian social media personality Newsha Syeh was apparently berated and insulted by a guard at the Louvre before being refused entry on the basis of her outfit. The outfit in question was a skirt overlaid with tiers of transparent black fishnet tulle, and a velvety lycra top with a plunging neckline that prominently displayed Syehs tattooed cleavage. Syeh expressed her displeasure to her 232,000 Instagram followers in a story that relayed her perturbing treatment in captions:

Yesterday at the Louvre, I was stopped at the entrance by a guard for my outfit, wrote Syeh. He made the most disgusted and horrible gestures and facial expressions, swore at me to cover up, with hate filled eyes stopped me entering, she continued. I was heartbroken, because I thought the Louvre enforced this archaic rule [sic]. Turns out it does not.

Syeh accompanied this post and a picture of her outfit with a screen cap from the Louvre website, which explicitly states that the museum does not have a dress code applicable to her attire that afternoon.

Dismantling Vaccine Propaganda "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Once in a while something shared on the internet comes my way that I feel moved to write about. The below is one such internet gem, a meme shared on Facebook that is frankly, an angry, misinformed rant.


On the surface the meme can seem convincing, but if you spend a little time trying to find studies to back up these statements, it soon falls flat.

So piece by piece Im going to break it down so that by the end of it, well all have learned some valuable scientific information about vaccines, and understand why the above meme constitutes bogus, manipulative, propaganda.

So let's dig in:

The diseases havent gone away. They are just held in check because sensible people vax their kids.

While the aim of vaccines is to keep VPD's (vaccine preventable diseases) in check, the stats just don't add up. Despite extremely high and stable vaccination rates, death from infection has actually increased dramatically since the 1970s an era when we received over 4 times less vaccines [1-5].

Some people arent sensible; they dont vax their kids. Yes, Im looking at you, sunshine you with the Ph.D from Google U and the post-doc from Whale.to. 

Vaccines have the ability to cause severe, permanent injury, and death [6-8]. While some screening is recommended, infants commonly receive vaccines without any testing and minimal to no screening to verify whether they will react badly. The CDC recommends administering ALL the vaccines a child is eligible for at the same doctors visit up to 9 vaccines at once [9,10]. This practice has never been studied for safety [11]. This is NOT sensible, it is reckless.

Because your little cherubs are un-vaxed they are far more likely to catch the diseases. 23 times more likely for whooping cough, 35 times more measles for example. 

While it's true that unvaxed kids are more likely to show symptoms of VPD's, there's very few studies that show unvaxed kids are more likely to actually contract or transmit VPD's compared to vaxed kids.

That's because there's almost no vaccine shown to protect recipients against INFECTION. Studies show vaccines can reduce symptoms of infection in many recipient...

When Journalists Attack Non-Vax Parents "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"


About a week ago I came across an article that was so full of incorrect information and prejudices against non-vaccinating parents I had to comment. It was the same old misinformation you often see touted across the internet, but this time it was expressed with such arrogance and rudeness, I was motivated to write this blogpost, correct the misinformation, and speak up for the non-vaccinating parents.

The article was written by Mia Freedman, a renown provax advocate, and published in the Herald Sun. Below is the article in dark red:

"THERE isn't enough room in this newspaper to list all the things I don't know. There's not even enough room in Wikipedia, which - if it were an actual book - would take you 123 years to read. Recently, though, there's been an explosion of people with a wildly inflated sense of their own intelligence. Suddenly, everyone's an expert. Me, not so much. I understand how little I know about lots of things. For example, I know less about science than scientists."

Mia says this, but later in her article insists she knows more than scientists who produce studies showing risks associated with vaccination. She's also never researched vaccination, and refuses to do so.

"I know less about medicine than doctors."

When it comes to specialties such as vaccination, the majority of doctors are not expertly trained in epidemiology, immunology, virology, or vaccinology and can not call themselves 'experts' in the field. Because new vaccine formulations are continually rolled out and new vaccine studies are published each year, unless doctors have done their own, up to date, independent research, many may know even less about the latest vaccine studies than you.

"I know less about tax than my accountant, less about cooking than Donna Hay and less about animals than Bondi Vet. There's no shortage of genuine experts who have degrees, qualifications and years of experience in their fields. Having access to Google does not make you an expert...

Astaxanthin-loaded nanostructured lipid carriers for preservation of antioxidant activity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Molecules. 2018 Oct 11 ;23(10). Epub 2018 Oct 11. PMID: 30314284 Abstract Title:  Astaxanthin-Loaded Nanostructured Lipid Carriers for Preservation of Antioxidant Activity. Abstract:  Astaxanthin is a xanthophyll carotenoid showing efficient scavenging ability and represents an interesting candidate in the development of new therapies for preventing and treating oxidative stress-related pathologies. However, its high lipophilicity and thermolability often limits its antioxidant efficacy in human applications. Here, we developed a formulation of lipid carriers to protect astaxanthin's antioxidant activity. The synthesis of natural astaxanthin-loaded nanostructured lipid carriers using a green process with sunflower oil as liquid lipid is presented. Their antioxidant activity was measured by-Tocopherol Equivalent Antioxidant Capacity assay and was compared to those of both natural astaxanthin and -tocopherol. Characterizations by dynamic light scattering, atomic force microscopy, and scattering electron microscopy techniques were carried out and showed spherical and surface negative charged particles with z-average and polydispersity values of ~60 nm and ~0.3, respectively. Astaxanthin loading was also investigated showing an astaxanthin recovery of more than 90% after synthesis of nanostructured lipid carriers. These results demonstrate the capability of the formulation to stabilize astaxanthin molecule and preserve and enhance the antioxidant activity.

Survey: 19% of Respondents Are Very Confident of ICO Market "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A new survey has found that 19 per cent of respondents are very confident about the initial coin offering industry (ICO), whereas 36 per cent remain neutral.

Neutral to Positive Confidence

The survey was conducted by TGE, who surveyed CEOs, firms, and consultants to deliver a quantitative measure to better understand the ICO and blockchain space. TGE questioned 319 participants.

So far in 2018 there has been bearish sentiment toward the ICO space, with the vast majority of ICOs trading below their listing price. According to the survey, nine per cent of respondents indicated they were somewhat non-confident of the market, while 14 per cent stated that they were not at all confident. However, while the industry has seen a drop in prices, a closer look at the results illustrate a neutral to positive confidence sentiment.

ICO scams are the most pressing issue that is impacting the market, the findings show, with nearly 40 per cent of participants responding. Lack of regulation and lack of governance came in second and third at 33 per cent and 27 per cent, respectively, as key challenges within the ICO space.

Yet, while investors see a lack of regulation and governance as vital factors impacting the ICO market, steps are, reportedly, being taken among different jurisdictions.

Taiwan, for instance, is preparing itself for an ICO regulatory framework. Last month, it was reported that Wellington Koo, chair of the countrys Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC), had stated that they are in the process of drafting ICO regulations that would make them liquid and safe as retail stocks.

Elsewhere, France-based money laundering watchdog, the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), is expected to launch its crypto guidelines by June 2019.

Two Hundred and Seventy Plastic Bags Rhythmically Inflate in a New Installation by Nils Vlker "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Two hundred and seventy white garbage bags hang like ghosts in the columned hall of Vienna, Austrias Museum fr agewandte Kunst (MAK) for the exhibition Sagmeister & Walsh: Beauty. The piece is by Nils Vlker (previously), and is titled after the number of bags present in the installation. Over 1000 precisely installed fans and 45 circuit boards keep their movement on track, helping to rhythmically inflate and deflate the hanging plastic objects. The repetitive crinkling fills the vast hall, creating an audio texture akin to the rustling of tissue paper or the sound of the tide on a sandy beach.

The concave installation is divided into nine segments that each contain two columns of plastic bags. While viewing the piece from the front you can only make out the white mass of plastic. Viewing it from the side or rear however, reveals the massive amount of cables and circuitry needed to make what appears to be such an effortless piece of art function. Two Hundred and Seventy is on view at MAK in Vienna through March 2019.

Veterans Day Thank You For Your Service, Llewellyn Morris Chilson "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Veterans Day Thank You For Your Service, Llewellyn Morris Chilson


By Claude Nelson
November 9, 2018 07:41


This coming Veterans Day the nation will honor the service of the millions of men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces. Every one of those veterans deserves our respect, but there are some who stand out even in such a distinguished crowd. These are people whose service went above and beyond what was expected of them, and earned them the title of heroes.
Some heroes, like Audie Murphy, are household names, and so they should be, but our other heroes deserve some attention too. Sadly, there are too many of them for us to do even a fraction of them justice here, but we thought, for Veterans Day, wed highlight one of the soldiers who helped make America great and keep it that way.
Theres an old saying that nobody remembers who won the silver medal. Thats unfair enough in sports, where the silver medal goes to someone whos beaten all but one of their competitors. How much more unfair is it when were talking about bravery in combat? But, unfair or not, it works the same way there. The reason Audie Murphy is a household name is that hes believed to be the most decorated man ever to put on a US Army uniform. But whos ever heard of Master Sergeant Llewellyn Chilson, the second most decorated man?
History Of A Hero
Llewellyn Morris Chilson was born on April 1, 1920 in Dayton, Ohio. His father, Frank Chilson, had served in the US Army during the First World War; after Germanys defeat he returned to Dayton, then after the birth of his son moved to Akron where he took a job driving buses.
Unfortunately, tragedy struck when Llewellyn Chilson was just ten years old; his mother Goldia was run down and killed by a truck just outside the family home. By this time, the Great Depression was in full swing and money was tight. Even if his father had wanted to spend less time at work, and more with his son, jobs were hard to find and nobody was going to give one up. So while Frank kept driving buses, the young Chilson was left alone for much of his childhood. He grew up on Akrons rough, poverty-stricken streets, which at the time were dominated by gangs and made even more dangerous by desperate transients searching for money or food.
Aged 16, Chilson quit high school and took a job as an interstate truck driver. He worked at that for the next five years, until the USA joined the Second World War. Applying weeks into the war, Chilson was enlisted in the US Army on March 28, 1942. He went through basic training at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana, then advanced infantry and amphibious training at Camp Livingston, Louisiana and Camp Johnson, Florida. In May he was posted to the anti-tank company of 2nd Battalion, 179th Infantry Regiment, part of the 45th Thunderbirds Infantry Division....

Markers of hypoxia and oxidative stress in aging volunteers ingesting lycosomal formulation of dark chocolate containing astaxanthin. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Nutr Health Aging. 2018 ;22(9):1092-1098. PMID: 30379308 Abstract Title:  Markers of Hypoxia and Oxidative Stress in Aging Volunteers Ingesting Lycosomal Formulation of Dark Chocolate Containing Astaxanthin. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: To determine if ingestion of lycosome-formulated dark chocolate (DC) containing astaxanthin (ASTX) improves bioavailability of ASTX and affects markers of hypoxia and oxidative stress in aging individuals.DESIGN: Randomized, blinded, four-arm, prospective study.SETTINGS: Lycotec Ltd, Cambridge, United Kingdom and Institute of Cardiology, Saratov, Russian Federation.PARTICIPANTS: 32 healthy individuals aged 60-70 years with confirmed signs of oxidative stress (increased serum levels of oxidized LDL and malonic dialdehyde) randomized into four study groups (8 volunteers each).INTERVENTION: Volunteers of first group were given orally 10 gr of dark chocolate (DC). Individuals from the second group received 7 mg of astaxanthin (ASTX). Third group of volunteers was supplemented with 10 gr of DC and 7 mg of ASTX ingested simultaneously as two separate formulations. Last group of the individuals was given 10 gr of a lycosomal formulation of DC containing 7 mg of co-crystalized ASTX (L-DC-ASTX), a newly developed highly bioavailable nutraceutical composition of DC containing 2 groups of antioxidants (cocoa flavanols and ASTX). All formulations were given orally, once daily for a month.MEASUREMENTS: Serum ASTX was measured by high-performance liquid chromatography. Nitric oxide, malonic dialdehyde and oxidized LDL were quantified spectrophotometrically. Oxygenation parameters were evaluated by near-infrared spectroscopy.RESULTS: One month ingestion of singular formulation of ASTX lead to a 20 fold buildup in serum ASTX level whereas the 4 week ingestion of L-DC-ASTX formulation was accompanied by more prominent accumulation of ASTX in serum (a 40 fold increase over the basal values) at the same daily dose of ASTX. Both antioxidants taken separately decreased serum levels of oxidized LDL and malonic dialdehyde. However effect of L-DC-ASTX formulation was more prominent. ASTX ingested alone caused a borderline increase (p=0.054) in serum nitric oxide (NO) levels, whereas DC ingestion lead to small but statistically significant increase in serum NO concentration. Higher values of NO level were seen after co-ingestion of DC and ASTX, especially in case of L-DC-ASTX formulation suggesting additive/synergistic effects of DC and ASTX on nitric oxide production. These changes were in agreement with the increase in plasma oxygen transport and tissue oxygen saturation seen in the volunteers supplemented with L-DC-ASTX formulation.CONCLUSION: The nutraceutical formulation of DC and ASTX with an enhanced bioavailability of ASTX can be efficiently used for the correction of...

Cobra Update Time Sensitive Situation Update 9th November 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Delta Option plan has triggered many different and strong responses and thus requires a little clarification.

https://spearoflight.blogspot.com/2018/11/personal-thought-operation-delta.html 

First, the general plan for the Event has remained the same. Delta Option covers only certain aspects of pre-Event operations.

Second, the main aim of the Light Forces is to minimize suffering on the planet and to decrease the level of violence, and Delta Option plan will be activated ONLY as a last resort when all other more peaceful options have failed. The probability of this happening oscillates from moment to moment, but the Resistance estimates the probability for the Delta option decreasing in the long term as the situation stabilizes.

There has been a lot of activity behind the scenes in the last few days and this article is partially correct:

Corey Goode | Alliance Update: New Phase of Operations, Preparations Underway, Secret Grand Juries

The Resistance has not been as active on the surface as it is now since early 2000s.

On a very positive note, I have received certain awesome intel on the level I did not receive since the year 2000, from a very high and reliable source.

I can just say that the amazing future we have been fighting for is real, and will happen. Replicators, free energy, interstellar travel, the Golden Age, all this is awaiting us. Trillions upon trillions of dollars are spent by the Cabal every year to give us the impression that nothing has changed and nothing every will.

Protective effects of astaxanthin on subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced early brain injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Acta Histochem. 2018 Nov 1. Epub 2018 Nov 1. PMID: 30392635 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of astaxanthin on subarachnoid hemorrhage-induced early brain injury: Reduction of cerebral vasospasm and improvement of neuron survival and mitochondrial function. Abstract:  The purpose of this study was to evaluate the neuroprotective effects of astaxanthin on early brain injury (EBI) caused by subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) in rats and to explore possible molecular mechanisms. Experimental SAH model was introduced in adult male SD rats by injecting autologous arterial blood into the prechiasmatic cistern. Astaxanthin (75mg/kg bodyweight) or olive oil was administered by oral gavage at 3h after SAH. Our results showed that astaxanthin attenuated SAH-induced cerebral vasospasm and reduced neuronal apoptosis. Astaxanthin inhibited mitochondria-associated neuron apoptosis in the prefrontal cortex after SAH: increased mitochondrial membrane potential, decreased Bax/Bcl-2 ratio, inhibited cytochrome C release in cytoplasm, and suppressed caspase-3 enzyme activity. Furthermore, the cerebral expression levels of synaptic proteins (Synapsin-1, postsynaptic density-95 and growth-associated protein-43) and nerve growth and neuronal differentiation factors (brain-derived neurotropic factor and purine-rich binding protein-alpha) were reduced following SAH. Astaxanthin partly restored their expression. In conclusion, our current work demonstrates that astaxanthin attenuates SAH-induced EBI, possibly by improving neuronal survival and mitochondrial function.

Dogecoin Creator: Bakkt, Fidelity, and Bitcoin ETF Are Bad for Cryptocurrency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Jackson Palmer, the founder of the cryptocurrency Dogecoin, has discussed what he calls the re-centralization of the cryptocurrency markets, and notably criticized the direction the industry is heading.

Growing Shift Away from Decentralization in Cryptocurrency Industry

In a recent opinion piece published in Diar, Palmer begins his Op-Ed, titled The Institutionalization of Cryptocurrency is a Paradox, with a detailed description of the current events that are considered valuable by the cryptocurrency community. This includes the release of the Bakkt custodial trading infrastructure and the approval of Bitcoin ETFs.

He explains that these events, which are commonly seen as being future impetuses for market growth, are specifically reliant on government and institutional approval of the crypto industry.

Palmer then urges that industry advocates take a step back and realize that reliance on external approval from these types of groups is counter to what cryptocurrency stands for, stating that:

While many cryptocurrency enthusiasts express blind enthusiasm at the notion of positive price impact associated with this money flowing in, its important to take a step back and analyze what this phase of the cryptocurrency lifecycle actually represents, and how far it lands the movement from its original goals.

In Palmers view, there were originally three pillars that defined cryptocurrencies, including being censorship resistant, conducting trustless transactions, and providing users with a verifiable history.

He believes that these cruxes of the technology, which all serve under the overarching principle of decentralization, are counter to an over-reliance on government and institutional approval.

This leads to his critique on the markets reliance on bank-like exchanges that are the epitome of a centralized institution, which detract from the decentralization of Bitcoins network.

The shift back to reliance on a single corporation (essentially a bank) as your window to a cryptocurrency network introduces a clear single point of failure. If Coinbase.com is hijacked or taken offline, a user relying on that provider essentially loses their access to the decentralized Bitcoin network.

Fox News Promotes RFID For Medical Purposes Heres Why You Shouldnt Take The Chip "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Aaron Kesel at Activist Post

Fox News is pushing RFID chip implants, encouraging people that the tech is safe and good for medical by stating its similar to getting a tetanus shot.

Recently in Sweden, thousands of people have reportedly had chips implanted. Fox highlights this news expressing that a company called Biohax has already installed around 4,000 chips into customers.

The article then goes onto explain how awesome it is to have a chip in ones hand, stating that those chipped can open secure doors, pay for tickets, and share emergency medical information.

Years ago, it was seen as a conspiracy theory that the elite wanted to microchip the populace. Now, its right in our faces constantly; its no longer a secret. Ill start by repeating the words of the great Aaron Russo, Rockefellers best friend: Do not take the chip.

NBC has previously said blatantly, your kids will receive the microchip for their safety.

There is absolutely nothing safe about allowing your kids to be microchipped. All this is being prepackaged as a way for law enforcement to rescue or find lost, kidnapped and missing children. They always seek to use the children.

Let me tell you, the elite care so much about the children that in the UK they wanted to lower the age of consent to four years old. I would like to know who bankrolled all these positive microchip stories.

In any event, this isnt the only way they are trying to push people to get the chip. Over the years there have been various commercials trying to push the chip. One showing a concert, another showing a doctor using it to diagnose patients disorders, and several other mentions of the chip in the media.

However, a story this w...

This Guy Recreated That Distracted Boyfriend Photo with LEGO "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

One of the most viral photos of 2017 was the Distracted Boyfriend stock photo that has widely been used as an Internet meme. Photographer Dylan Maithonis faithfully recreated that famous photo using LEGO.

In case you somehow havent seen it yet, heres the original stock photo by photographer Antonio Guillem, a 45-year-old professional advertising photographer based in Barcelona, Spain:

Disloyal man walking with his girlfriend and looking amazed at another seductive girl by Antonio Guillem.

Maithonis loves memes, LEGO, and photography, so he decided to combine all three by remaking Guillems shot.

I made this shot because the boyfriends face piece was newly introduced and I thought it was perfect for recreating the meme, Maithonis tells PetaPixel. After the inspiration I ordered the rest of the parts off BrickLink, such as the hair pieces, the body pieces and the girls heads, to make it look more true to the meme.

Once he had all the pieces he needed, Maithonis built a tabletop set with the three minifigs and the city background (with some other passersby as well).

Global Internet Freedom Plummets as Governments Use Censorship and Surveillance to Quash Dissent "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

New Freedom House analysis warns that the rising popularity of Chinas model of controlling information online threatens democracy worldwide.

Countries across the globe are following in the footsteps of the Chinese government, adopting authoritarian digital practices that pose serious threats to democracy, according to a new Freedom House report released Thursday.

For Freedom on the Net 2018 (pdf), more than 70 researchers comprehensively reviewed internet freedom in 65 countries that represent 87 percent of the worlds internet users. They documented declines in 26 countriesincluding the United States under the Trump administration as well as Egypt, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Kenya, Nigeria, the Philippines, and Venezuelaand improvements in only 19 nations.

They found that disinformation and propaganda disseminated online have poisoned the public sphere. The unbridled collection of personal data has broken down traditional notions of privacy. And a cohort of countries is moving toward digital authoritarianism by embracing the Chinese model of extensive censorship and automated surveillance systems. As a result of these trends, global internet freedom declined for the eighth consecutive year in 2018.

How to implement an Object-Pool with an Actor in Kotlin "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Photo by David Lezcano on Unsplash

We use object pool in jasync-sql to manage connections to the database. In this post, I will share how it is done in a performant, lock-free manner using Kotlin coroutines with an Actor.

An object pool has a very simple API to work with. It is a pool of objects with two methods: take() and return().

On first sight it looks like a very simple problem. The main catch here is that it has to be both performant and thread-safe, and thats what makes it interesting and tricky to implement.

But hey! Why do we need an object pool anyway?

jasync-sql is a library to access relational databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL. Database connections are a great example of the need for object pools. The access to the database is done by obtaining a connection from a Connection-Pool, using it and returning it back to the pool.

With a connection pool we get a couple of advantages over creating connections per each SQL query:

  • Reusing connectionssince the overhead of initiating a connection to the database is high (handshake, etc), connection pools allow keeping connections alive, thus reducing that overhead.
  • Limiting resourcescreating a DB connection per user request can be overwhelming to the DB. Using a pool effectively adds a barrier, limiting the number of maximum number of concurrent connections.
Well, I am sold, but

Isnt a Connection Pool a solved problem in the Java world?

Yes it is a solved problem if youre using JDBC. In that case HikariCP is an excellent choice from my experience, but there are a lot of others. In the case of jasync-sql it is not possible to use HikariCP, because HikariCP works with the JDBC API, and the jasync-sql driver is not implementing that full-fledged API, only a subset of it.

What about other Object pools in Java world?

There are numerous implementations, but it turns out that you usually find some spec...

Photographer Captures the Diverse Wild Beauty of the Oregon Landscape "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Landscape Photography by Ludwig Favre

The United States is host to many different climates and terrains, but they are typically spread throughout the country. Oregon, however, defies this convention with its diversity. The geography is split into eight distinct regions, and it boasts volcanoes, large bodies of water (including the deepest lake in the US), dense forests, as well as high deserts and semi-arid shrublands. Photographer Ludwig Favre showcases some of these breathtaking sights in his series of landscape Oregon photography.

Favre traveled around the state to capture the various terrains in stark, desolate beauty. In these places, he highlights their incredible natural features, such as Haystack Rock in Cannon Beach. The mass rises 235 feet from the edge of the shoreline and is one of Oregons most recognizable landmarks. Favre eventually left the coast and snapped photos of Mt. Hood, the states tallest mountain that peaks at 11,250 feet, while also venturing to the city of Hillsboro to capture an aerial shot of an airplane parked among evergreen trees.

Viewed as a whole, Favre will make any non-Oregon resident want to visitor those that live in the state to explore their home a bit more. His gorgeous images not only induce wanderlust, but they also showcase (just some of) what the state has to offer.

Ludwig Favre snaps Oregon photography to showcase the beautiful diversity of the state.

Astaxanthin prevents human papillomavirus L1 protein binding in human sperm membranes. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Mar Drugs. 2018 Nov 2 ;16(11). Epub 2018 Nov 2. PMID: 30400141 Abstract Title:  Astaxanthin Prevents Human Papillomavirus L1 Protein Binding in Human Sperm Membranes. Abstract:  Astaxanthin (Asta), red pigment of the carotenoid family, is known for its anti-oxidant, anti-cancer, anti-diabetic, and anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, we evaluated the effects of Asta on isolated human sperm in the presence of human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 capsid protein, L1. Sperm, purified by gradient separation, were treated with HPV16-L1 in both a dose and time-dependent manner in the absence or presence of 30 min-Asta pre-incubation. Effects of HPV16-L1 alone after Asta pre-incubation were evaluated by rafts (CTB) and Lyn dislocation, Tyr-phosphorylation (Tyr-P) of the head, percentages of acrosome-reacted cells (ARC) and endogenous reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. Sperm membranes were also analyzed for the HPV16-L1 content. Results show that HPV16-L1 drastically reduced membrane rearrangement with percentage of sperm showing head CTB and Lyn displacement decreasing from 72% to 15.8%, and from 63.1% to 13.9%, respectively. Accordingly, both Tyr-P of the head and ARC decreased from 68.4% to 10.2%, and from 65.7% to 14.6%, respectively. Asta pre-incubation prevented this drop and restored values of the percentage of ARC up to 40.8%. No alteration was found in either the ROS generation curve or sperm motility. In conclusion, Asta is able to preserve sperm by reducing the amount of HPV16-L1 bound onto membranes.

People Find Terrified Little Animal Floating In Garbage Can "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

She was exhausted, cold and running out of time until the kindest person saved her life.

Earlier this week, a man working on a house in South Carolina heard a splashing noise coming from a trash can that had been left open. He decided to peek inside, and he saw the most heartbreaking thing: An opossum had jumped into the can searching for food, and ended up getting trapped in a sea of rainwater that had filled the can halfway. She had no way of getting back out on her own.

Credit: The Opossum Pouch Rescue

The man contacted Beth Sparks, founder and codirector of The Opossum Pouch Rescue, who talked him through what to do until she could get there. He scooped up the stressed animal and put her into an empty bin as Sparks rushed to the scene. The little opossum was terrified but her day-long struggle was finally over. Sparks brought the animal back to the rescue center, where the team checked her over and gave her some food.

She has some nasal discharge, which we worry could be pneumonia or the beginning of it, with water in her lungs, Sparks told The Dodo. She's extremely emaciated but not for long! Today she is snug, warm and has a full tummy.

Credit: The Opossum Pouch Rescue

Unfortunately, the little opossum, whom Sparks named Puddin, will likely be unable to return to the wild. She is showing signs of head trauma, possibly from being hit by a car or hurt by a predator, which is why she was so underweight.

It causes brain damage that leaves them simple minded ... they lose the fear of everything, Sparks said. She is displaying that behavior, which makes it even harder for them to find food [in the wild]. Luckily, the rescue is also a growing opossum sanctuary that provides lifelong care for critters who are too injured or sick to live on their own.

Tate Moderns Neighbors Take the Museum to Court Over Privacy Concerns "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Detail shot of the Tate Moderns Blavatnik building (image courtesy Tate Modern, photo Iwan Baan)

The 360-degree view from the top of Tate Moderns 10-floor Blavatnik Building offers unparalleled views of Londons skyline and inside the apartments of a nearby luxury development.

On November 2, Londons High Court began hearing a privacy lawsuit against the museum that made headlines when it was filed last year. Four owners of the condominiums in the NEO Bankside building, completed in 2012, decided to sue the Tate in an effort to compel the museum to block the part of its viewing platform where visitors are able to see into their multimillion-dollar apartments. The museum extension featuring the observation deck was completed in 2016 by the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron.

Guy Fetherstonhaugh, a lawyer representing the Tate board of trustees, told the court that the apartment owners want to deny to the public the right to use the viewing platform for its intended purpose merely to give the claimants an unencumbered right to enjoy their own view. But residents of the NEO Bankside building, whose apartments carrying a minimum price tag of about $2.5 million, are concerned that their privacy is being interrupted daily at an abnormally high rate.

Graduated ND Filters vs Multiple Exposures: Which is Best and When? "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Using a graduated neutral density (GND) filter is fairly easy and doesnt require any advanced techniques in post-production, but the easiest option isnt always the best choice; due to the filters transition being horizontal, anything above the distinction will be darkened and anything below will be left alone.

This is a good solution when theres a flat horizon, but what do we do when there are mountains projecting above it? What do we do when there are large trees in the image? Using a GND filter means that theyll be darkened as well. Thats something we want to avoid.

An efficient solution is to capture multiple images of different exposure and merging together by the use of a software such as Adobe Photoshop. This is a time-consuming alternative and quite frankly, it isnt always necessary.

So, which one is the better choice? Is there always a correct answer? Before we jump into that, lets take a closer look at the two options.

What is a Graduated Neutral Density Filter?

A Graduated Neutral density filter is a partially darkened filter whose purpose is to balance the exposure of an image by darkening the bright parts. Typically, its used to darken the sky as thats the brightest part of an image.

The filter comes in many variations, including different degrees of darkness and different methods of transitions from the dark part to the transparent (i.e. some have a soft/long transition while others are hard/short).

What is Multiple Exposure for Better Dynamic Range?

Taking multiple exposures to capture the full dynamic range means that you take a series of images with different exposures. This often includes one base image, one underexposed image, and one overexposed image.

With these exposures youve captured the full dynamic range, meaning youve got information in both the shadows and highlights and youve avoided clipping either of them.

The second step is to blend the images using a software such as Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop. This process leaves you with one flattened image which is a combination of those used; in other words, youre left with a correctly exposed file made from the correct parts of the images used.

Carleton Watkins and Photographys Romance with the American West "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Carleton Watkins, Yosemite Valley, California ca. 1865 (image courtesy Wikipedia)

Tyler Green may be best known as the journalist and art writer behind the Modern Art Notes podcast, but for the last six years, hes also been working on a major book about a photographer who helped establish the sublime visual record of the American West for viewers around the world.

In his new book, Carleton Watkins: Making the West American, Green writes a very readable story about a figure who blended art and science, helped establish photography as an art, and whose images helped galvanize a citizenry that would eventually establish a national park system around the country. Green managed all of this despite being faced with a researchers nightmare: Watkinss archive was destroyed in the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.

Then theres the twist, as Green discusses a very personal connection to Watkins that he discovered in the midst of his research. Its a fascinating tale that shows us history is often more present than we know.

Blueberry anthocyanin and anthocyanidin extracts inhibit the proliferation and trigger the apoptosis of B16-F10 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Food Nutr Res. 2017 ;61(1):1325308. Epub 2017 Jun 19. PMID: 28680383 Abstract Title:  Antiproliferative and proapoptotic activities of anthocyanin and anthocyanidin extracts from blueberry fruits on B16-F10 melanoma cells. Abstract:  : Anthocyanins have been proven to affect multiple cancer-associated processes in different cancer cell lines. However, relatively few studies have investigated the effects of blueberry anthocyanins on metastatic melanoma. Thus, this study focuses on evaluating the chemopreventive potential of blueberry anthocyanins and their aglycones (anthocyanidins) in B16-F10 melanoma cells.: Blueberry anthocyanin and anthocyanidin extracts were prepared mainly by combined chromatography techniques. Their antiproliferative and proapoptotic effects on B16-F10 cells were evaluated by MTT assay, calcein acetoxymethyl ester/propidium iodide (calcein-AM/PI) staining, and flow cytometry of the cell cycle and apoptosis.: The MTT and calcein-AM/PI staining results showed that both anthocyanin (purity of 62.5%) and anthocyanidin (75.1%) extracts could significantly inhibit the viability and proliferation of B16-F10 cells in a dose-dependent manner, while anthocyanidin extracts exhibited significantly higher (

How to prepare when birth is imminent. On waiting... "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

My dearest friend Anadi was due this past week. Baby has other ideas, as they often do. Very opinionated little creatures. My husband always said that they are 'almost human.' 
My Amish mamas would respond when anyone asked their due date, "Well, time will tell."
No drama. No stress. Time and baby know. Carry on. Rest, eat, clean the bedroom again. Check the freezer and count the meals, again. Scrub the kitchen, again. Nesting takes time. I once shingled a whole outhouse with cedar shakes five days after my 'guess date.' Hannah arrived--they always do--just as I hung the homemade curtains in the biffy (like a house on fire! 40 minute warning was all I got and I was holding her. Actually, David was holding her, having caught her because the midwife wasn't there yet.)  

Before my babies I used imagery. Every night before I would doze off to sleep, before another trip to the outhouse, I would envision the birth: the soft lights, in our case candles and kerosene lanterns; the other kids all sleeping in the loft, the wood stove humming and popping as sap and fire met. Me shaking out clean sheets on the downstairs couch, while sipping tea. Then I would picture transition and pushing: wordless, timeless, soundless space where the cosmos stand still for the night of my baby's birth. I didn't picture music or talking or much else. Not even thinking. Just watching my body do what it was created to do. It had grown this baby without much knowledge or input from me, it must know how to get it out when the time comes. "Thinking so much" if I can paraphrase Dr. Michael Odent, "will not help the next generations of Western women, who will loose the capacity to birth naturally," he predicted. Even the abundant use of Pitocin might be sending a message to our collective anatomy as a species that we don't need or seem to use our natural hormones and as a result they may be eliminated from evolution in the future. 

When my twins were due, and it was about five days to their 'guess date', I couldn't eat anymore. I couldn't even poop. There was no room left for anything but babies. Isaac turned out to weig...

NASA just released this new close-up photo of the swirling clouds found on Jupiter. It was captured by the Juno spacecraft on October 29th, 2018, during its 16th close flyby of the gas giant.

The clouds in the photo were seen in Jupiters North-North Temperate Belt (NNTB), one of the distinct cloud bands.

The white oval seen in the photo is an anticyclonic storm.

Juno captured this photo while flying at a distance of about 4,400 miles (7,000km) from the cloud tops. Thats a little more than half an Earth away from Jupiter, which is extremely close given that Jupiters diameter is a whopping 86,881 miles (142,984km).

Take Your Pick: Law or Freedom : How Nobody Is above the Law Abets the Rise of Tyranny "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

We saw you last night among thousands of other anti-Trump demonstrators around the US. Their signs proclaimed, No one is above the law. You were the one with the sign reading I love laws. We need to talk.

Really, this is what gets you into the streets? Trumps goons have been kidnapping your neighbors, preparing to block your access to abortion, openly promoting nationalism, calling the targets for lone wolf assassins who send mail bombs and shoot up synagoguesand your chief concern is whether what theyre doing is legal?

And if Trump and his cronies were to change the lawswhat then?

If youre trying to establish the foundation for a powerful social movement against Trumps government, no one is above the law is a self-defeating narrative. What happens when a legislature chosen by gerrymander passes new laws? What happens when the courts stacked with the judges Trump appointed rule in his favor? What will you do when the FBI cracks down on protests?

If everything that put Trump in a position to implement his agenda were legal, would you be at peace with it, then? When some nice centrist politician takes office after him, but the police keep enforcing the policies he introduced and the judges he appointed keep judging, will you withdraw from the streets? Come to think of it, where were you under Obama when people were being imprisoned and deported by the million? Perhaps you have no problem with millions of people being imprisoned and deported as long as no one colludes with Russia or talks over a journalist?

We saw other protesters with signs entreating us to Save Democracy. Didnt democracy inflict Trump on us in the first place? Isnt it democracy that just brought Bolsonaro to power in Brazila racist, sexist, and homophobic advocate of the Brazilian military dictatorship and extrajudicial killings? If democracy enables outright fascists to legitimize their authority rather than having to seize power by force, whats so great about it, exactly?

Bitcoin Falls to $6,300 Region as Altcoins Continue to Decline "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

After failing to stabilize above $6,500, Bitcoin has now fallen into the $6,300 region, and it is becoming increasingly likely that it will test its long-established support level that exists at $6,200.

Altcoins also took a hit on Friday after yesterdays weak day of trading.

Bitcoin Drifts Lower, $6,200 Likely to be Defended by Bulls

At the time of writing, Bitcoin (BTC) is trading at $6,395, trading down 1.3% over the past 24-hours.

BTC has been gradually declining since November 6th, when it rose to weekly highs of nearly $6,600 before beginning its slow decent back to its current levels.

Historically, it is important that bulls defend the $6,200 region, as that is the bottom of BTCs persisting trading range between $6,200 and $6,700. If the bottom of this range is broken, it will open the doors for BTC to retest its year-to-date lows in the $5,800 region.

Although this is a possibility, it is fairly unlikely considering that bulls have defended $6,200 on approximately four occasion over the past three months, meaning that bulls will likely step up to defend this level in the future, unless there is a news-based drop.

Altcoins Continue to Decline

Bitcoins decline to the $6,300 levels has perpetuated the relatively small decline in altcoin prices, with many major alts trading down 3%+, with the worst performing major alt down nearly 20%.

At the time of writing, todays market drop has been led by Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Cardano (ADA), and Basic Attention Token (BAT), which are trading down 3.8%, 3.7%, and 18.2% respectively.

Despite having a bad past couple of days, Bitcoin Cash is still one of the best performers of the week, currently trading at $570, up 26% from its weekly lows of approximately $450.

BCHs bullish week is the result of its imminent hard fork event, which is scheduled to occur on November 15th. This event will reward holders of BCH with units of the forked cryptocurrency, which could ultimately prove to be highly profitable for investors.

Over the next week, investors could begin to increase their BCH positions in anticipation of the hard fork, then offloading their positi...

How to tackle CSS specificity issues and when to use the !important keyword "IndyWatch Feed Education"

How to tackle CSS specificity issues and when to use the !important keyword

A Case Study

Recently, there was a Twitter poll floating around where the user asked their followers a question about CSS specificity . Unfortunately, I was unable to find the original tweet (comment below if you happen to find it!) but long story short, the majority of people got the answer wrong.

That Twitter poll (and its aftermath) led to me brushing up on my own knowledge of the topic of specificity and in turn, made me start fixing specificity issues in my own projectswhich brings me to the purpose of this post.

In this post, we will be refactoring CSS code from a project of mine that has CSS specificity issues that are in need of fixing.

CSS Specificity

Definition

Specificity is described by MDN Web Docs as:

the means by which browsers decide which CSS property values are the most relevant to an element and therefore, applied.

Rules

When deciding which CSS property values are the most relevant to apply to an element, the browser uses the source order (i.e the cascade) of the CSS stylesheet to determine this. But this rule applies when the CSS selectors have equal specificity. What happens when the specificity of one CSS selector is higher than another?

In that case, browsers will use the specificity of a CSS selector to determine what CSS statements to apply. The higher the specificity of a CSS selector, the more likely that browsers will apply its CSS declarations over another.

nav a {
color: green;
}
a {
color: red;
}

For example, in the example above, both of the CSS selectors are targeting the same HTML element, the anchor tag. In order to determine which CSS rule to apply to the anchor tag, the browser will calculate the specificity value and check which one is the highest. In this case, the first selector has a higher specificity value, therefore the browser will use its declarations to apply to the anchor tag.

Id like to point out here that although !important is not a CSS selector, it is a keyword that is used to forcefully override a CSS rule regardless of the specificity value, origin or source order of a CSS selector. Some use cases include:

  • Temporary fixes (a bit like putting duct-tape on a leaky pipe)
  • Overriding inline styling
  • Testing...

White House Slammed for Sharing Doctored Video "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The White House is being slammed by press photographer associations for its use of a clearly manipulated video of a press conference exchange this past Wednesday.

During President Donald Trumps first press conference following Tuesdays midterm elections, CNN journalist Jim Acosta engaged in a heated exchange with Trump. When a White House intern approached to grab the mic from Acosta, the reporter refused to give it up and pushed her arm down as they both held the mic.

Following the press conference, the White House decided to revoke Acostas hard pass, which gives him access to White House grounds. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders then Tweeted out a video focusing on Acostas arm push as inappropriate behavior that was clearly documented on camera.

This Tweeted video has since become a story in itself.
