Visualizing the Imaginary and Unseen "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Nicolas Carone, Orpheus (1960), oil on canvas, 48 3/8 x 60 inches (courtesy of the Estate of Nicolas Carone)

In a painting from 1989, Nicolas Carone deploys airy zigzags of luminous beige. Layering flat passages of pinkish gray, he teases the literal flatness of the canvas. He builds rounded volumes from angled planes. So far, I could be describing an abstract painting, but, as it happens, it portrays the head and shoulders of a woman in a low-cut gown. Though Carones subject has the presence of an actual person, she is the artists invention. Not an archetype or even a type, she is persuasively individual, in part because of skeptical look on her face. The artist has brought the flavor of accurate observation to a portrait sitting that never took place.

That the womans right eye is larger than her left could be seen as a realistic detail. The imbalance is so striking that I wonder if Carone meant it to suggest the passage of time one eye calm and the other, a moment later, startled into opening wide. Or perhaps the disparity alludes to the changes we perceive as we approach an image for a close look at a detail, then move back for a broader view. Here, as in other artworks, the artist entangles questions about the image with questions about our understanding of it, with no definitive answers. Fully intended, these ambiguities are products of Carones pictorial wit.

This Imaginary Portrait is one of eleven on view at the Loretta Howard Gallery through October 28. The earliest painting in the show is The Prince, 1970, a half-length portrait of a personage with the stillness and the opulent outfit of a sitter in a portrait by the 16th-century Mannerist Agnolo Bronzino. Where Bronzino favors glossy blacks, Carone fills The Prince with luminous, dusty pinks and ochres. And he shapes the face with taut, curved planes learned from mid-1940s portraits by Willem de Kooning, who found these elegantly linear forms in Arshile Gorkys earlier portrait of his mother and himself as a young boy.

Ambitions and Limitations of Civic Engagement in the Museum "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view of Philadelphia Assembled (courtesy Philadelphia Museum of Art)

PHILADELPHIA Unless you were born without a heart, Philadelphia Assembled, an exhibition on civic engagement initiated by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and currently on view at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, will very likely provoke tears. The first time I felt a swell of emotion was when I heard the distinct sound of Nina Simones voice emanating from one of the rooms in the exhibit. She was singing the phrase, between the garbage and the flowers, from her cover of Leonard Cohens Suzanne.

By this point, Id spent about forty-five minutes in a room devoted to Jeffrey Stockbridges Kensington Blues, a series of photographs taken in the area around Kensington Avenue, in North Philadelphia, which was once a strong working class community and national leader of the textile industry. For many residents of the city, Kensington Avenue is now synonymous with vice, a place where heroin, crack, and Xanax are sold in the open. Rather than simply mirroring the stereotypes of drug addiction and prostitution, Stockbridge urges the viewer to see into the lives of people who are suffering.

On one gallery wall, three long rows of portrait photos are interspersed with photos of abandoned lots and the shadowy world under the Market-Frankford line, also known as the El. In one portrait, a shirtless man in his thirties has the tanned outline of a tank top, accentuating the paleness of his skin. Tattooed around his neck and down his chest is an elaborate cross necklace. A hypodermic needle sits tucked into his elastic waistband, and track marks line his forearms. He seems to be posturing, but theres nothing romantic in his gaze.

Interviews conducted by Stockbridge with his subjects play from headphones at both ends of the rows of photos. Many of Stockbridges participants are startlingly candid about their lives. One woman said she had returned to prostitution after raising her three children and the death of her most recent long-term partner, because she didnt want shift work. She wanted control over her schedule, even at the risk of pain. These reco...

Rose DeSiano Holds a Mirror Up to Nature "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view of Rose DeSianos Island of Empirical Data and Other Fabrications (all photos by Toby Tenenbaum)

Randalls Island and Wards Island occupy a liminal position in New York Citys geography. Nestled in the armpit between Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens, the formerly separate, but now conjoined islands are probably best known as the landmass over which the Triborough Bridge passes. The islands location, low population (1,600), and ample acreage (520) have made them into a local recreational hub, complete with a golf center, tennis center, horseback riding academy, picnic areas, track and field stadium, and more athletic fields than any other New York City park. But their spaciousness means they have also been repositories for those elements of civilization deemed unwanted, including, at present, two psychiatric hospitals, a wastewater treatment plant, and several homeless shelters.

For the Randalls Island Park Alliances and Bronx Museum of the Arts annual FLOW exhibition, Rose DeSiano has installed a thoughtful sculpture series, Island of Empirical Data and Other Fabrications, that engages with Randalls and Wards Islands erased and obscured histories. Situated at two separate footbridge landings, the installation consists of several approximately 8 x 3 mirrors, arranged upright in rows on the grass. Most mirrors are partially covered with photographic images animals, flowers, ferry boats, colonial British soldiers, Native Americans, buildings and construction sites that allude to the islands histories. In many cases, those images, affixed to the mirrors with adhesive tape, extend across multiple mirror panels in the manner of a diptych or triptych.

Street Artist Turns Buildings into Gigantic Butterfly Specimen Cases "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Butterfly Murals by Mantra

France-based street artist Mantra transforms multi-story buildings into gigantic butterfly specimen cases in a series of clever, trick-of-the-eye 3D murals. The enormous, hyper-realistic butterflies appear to be set within wooden-framed boxes, recessed into the side of each building. Long shadows and subtle details, which suggest a transparent glass surface, create a convincing level of depth that helps to enforce the head-turning optical illusions.

Not all of Mantras butterfly murals are painted outside, though, and not all are depicted as preserved specimens. Some occupy rooms within abandoned buildings, taking position against a wall, or standing out from a corner. So far, his butterflies have appeared in Spain, Austria, France, and Bogota.

Mantras illusory murals dont end with butterflies either; hes also painted cats, birds, and reptiles, as well as other insects, such as moths, beetles, and (in one instance) a monstrous spider, creeping out from a crack in the side of an apartment block.

Keep up to date on Mantras latest work by following him on Instagram.

Gen Kelly - What Happens When a Soldier Dies, 1849 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Gen Kelly - What Happens When a Soldier Dies, 1849 Synopsis: Yesterday, General John F. Kelly, took to the podium in the long thin White House press room and gently lambasted the assembled White House press corps for their coverage of a certain opportunistic, showboat congresswoman who outrageously criticized President Trump for telling the wife of a Green Beret who had just been killed in Niger. Ive had the extreme honor to known several Green Berets and other Special Operations folks one of whom Im related to - and I can tell you that these are not normal people. These are the most highly-trained human beings on the planet. They speak multiple languages. They keep their bodies in tip-top condition and at this high, high level, they know what they signed up for. They know that they are the very tip of the spear of freedom. These people live lives of self-sacrifice and selfless service to this nation and thats why when one of them falls in battle, this nation stops and comes to attention. They dont have to be where they were. They have skills that that they could cash in on in the American economy at any time, but they know they are on the leading edge and once you taste that leading edge, you just never want to leave. Ive been there, and thats why I do what I do now at an age when most people are happy to retire and just watch sporting events. To my friends and relatives still self-sacrificially living on that leading edge right now today I salute you, and you can be sure that as long as I have breath in me, I will do everything in my power to support and defend what you do. General Kelly lost a son in Afghanistan. I cant imagine the crushing loss of such a superbly-trained individual in whom you have put everything a parent can throw into a child all the hopes and dreams and love. Even a tough General like Kelly, almost breaks down twice recounting his loss.

Tucker - Theres Dishonesty in Here Somewhere, 1848 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

SeaShell Diamond Gallery, Custom Fine Jewelry Made in Hawaii. 808-338-9988; SeaShellDiamondGallery.com For a copy of the report mentioned herein, request by email to: contact@citizens-4-integrity.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Tucker - Theres Dishonesty in Here Somewhere, 1848 Synopsis: Tucker Carlson is the best reporter in TV journalism. Hes prudently cautious, but relentless when he sees the government being involved in deceiving the public. This is obviously true to anyone who has followed the tangled web of pronouncements from the FBI in Las Vegas, and it obviously troubled Sheriff troubled because he knows hes having to dispense information that is less than the truth. Tucker and columnist Mark Stein have a sometimes hilarious and sometimes tragically serious discussion of yesterdays so-called interview of Vegas security guard, Jesus Campos, and Mandalay Bay engineer, Stephen Schuck on Ellen DeGeneress afternoon talk show. [insert] By the way, there is a great new report from Citizens-4-Integrity on the Las Vegas mass shooting. Although I cant agree with a few of their conclusions I think their conclusions about the helicopter are wrong because they think it was much closer to the hotel than it obviously is. But other than that, this is THE best accumulation of the fast-moving events surrounding this incident around. These folks have done a great service to humanity. For example: Its conclusion is that there were at least two guns involved on assault type rifle that shot only 6 rounds/second, and a heavier machine gut that pumped out fire at nearly twice that rate. They also ask very common-sense questions: Why were there so many weapons 23 by some accounts? If he were going to commit this type of crime alone he likely would have brought 4-5 weapons at the most. More than that would complicate planning, not be needed, and would only increase the chance of being caught.

Cognitive Dissonance by Lisa Renee "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


(Lisa ReneeCurrently the earth and all inhabitants are subjected to hidden and obvious mind control technologies used to increase Cognitive Dissonance that socially engineer the collective consciousness Consent to accept the Death Culture. Most people on earth would not give their consent to be slaves or to be used for energy, so they are mind controlled to stay in denial, survival or escapism to avoid seeing this painful truth. Consumer marketing campaigns capitalize on cognitive dissonance by framing their advertising in such way that the easiest magical solution to reduce pain or discomfort from problems is to buy or support their product or Propaganda. Through media bombardment they consistently form positive associations to the negative behaviors of the death culture in order to increase cognitive dissonance in the way people think, which increases suggestibility and gullibility into programming. People that are highly suggestible are programmed in such ways that directly impact the unconscious formation of Doublethink into socially acceptable belief systems.

American Monuments Then and Now "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Lee Friedlander, Father Duffy. Times Square, New York, New York (1974), gelatin silver print, 7 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches (all photographs Lee Friedlander, courtesy Fraenkel Gallery and Eakins Press Foundation)

As public symbols of civic virtue and regional pride, the formal and iconographic range of monuments, memorials, and other commemorative statuary in American culture is truly astounding. Two hundred thirteen of them, shot over a period of 12 years, are represented by the photographer Lee Friedlander in The American Monument, originally published by the Eakins Press in 1976. This magnificent books much-anticipated second edition is now being distributed, and its arrival coincides with the opening skirmishes in what promises to be an extended battle over control of the historical narratives that our public spaces are commandeered to perpetuate.

Friedlanders brilliant strategy consistent with his propensity for an excess of fact is to include within the photograph not only the monument itself but also a significant part its immediate surroundings (and sometimes, depending on the photographers proximity to it, more distant features of the landscape). In a few cases, the ostensible subject is visually incidental to the composition or even partially obscured. This emphasis is crucial, because Friedlanders larger subject is the dynamic relationship between the monument (in its apparent permanence) and its location, its physical context which continually changes, whether gradually or swiftly, to reflect the communitys values.

Massive Hole Appears on the Surface of Antarctica with No Explanation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Scientists are baffled by a giant hole the size of one of the Great Lakes that has appeared on the surface of Antarctica. Holes in the ice happen all the time, but this massive void just showed up on satellites, and scientists have no clue what caused it.

Atmospheric physicist Kent Moore told Motherboard that the ice is thousands of kilometers from the ice edge. Moore stated, Were still trying to figure out what is going on. It looks like someone just punched a hole in the ice. The hole measures 80,000 kilometers at its peak.

Though ice holes called polynias often form along the coastal areas of Antarctica, they dont usually occur right in the middle of an icy landmass.

Curiously, another large polynia was observed in the same location in the 1970s, in Weddell Sea, according to Moore, who has been working with the Southern Ocean Carbon and Climate Observations and Modeling Group.

Some mainstream news outlets are quick to dismiss the hole as a phenomenon linked to global warming, but even climate scientists say that this huge hole is highly unusual.

Along with the massive hole suddenly appearing, there have been numerous additional odd occurrences in Antarctica recently including:

  • The discovery of a strange 14-mile long structure buried in the ice. One You-tuber commenting on the discovery said, this thing is so huge, you could even see it from outer space.

Bitcoin surges to over $6,000 setting new record "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The worlds most popular digital currency, Bitcoin, has topped another threshold, reaching $6,031 on Friday. It comes less than a week after the crypto currency smashed the $5,000 benchmark.
.

Just two days before climbing to the new high, Bitcoin registered its largest one-day drop in a month, plummeting by more than 8 percent following a release of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission [CFTC] primer, envisioning tighter oversight over digital tokens.

The report put virtual currencies in the same category with securities, thus making them a subject of the relevant securities laws. The newly released report echoes the stance of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on the issue, which said in July that digital currency sales should fall under the scope of the US federal securities laws. The debate over whether to view digital tokens issued through initial coin offerings as commodities has been raging in the US and in another countries.

Bitcoin plunged to below $3,000 in September after China shut down cryptocurrency exchanges. Russia, where Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are not currently regulated by law, this month announced it would start regulating issuing, mining and circulation of cryptocurrencies. Russian President Vladimir Putin noted that it is necessary to diminish the risks associated with cryptocurrencies, as at present nobody can be held responsible for currency bubbles or other illicit activities with the tokens.

Recently, the Russian Central Bank said that it may block Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency exchange websites as the nature of their operations are akin to financial pyramid schemes.

We have seen how Bitcoin has transformed from a payment unit into an asset, which is bought in order to obtain a high yield in a short period of time. This is a definition of a pyramid, the first deputy governor of the Bank of Russia Sergey Shvetsov said in October.

Despite constant fears of a looming governmental crackdown, Bitcoins value has increased by more than 500 percent in 2017.

Youre 30 Times More Likely to Laugh When in the Company of Others "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Laughter was likely developed as a primitive, yet effective social evolutionary tool. It releases tension in arguments, builds bridges in disagreements, and makes it easier for us to forgive one anothers short-comings. There is a way to experience all the emotional and health benefits that accompany laughter but, ideally, it is experienced collectively. Its been proven that we are 30 times more likely to laugh when we are with others, rather than alone.

Even for the intuitive empaths among us those of us who like to be alone, rather than in a crowd this is a strong indication that we are meant to learn to thrive in the company of one another. Laughter, from an evolutionary standpoint, was rooted in survival, more than enjoyment, but ironically, it has developed into something that supports not only subsistence, but greater happiness. And it does it almost instantaneously.

Heres how strong laughter truly is:

  • Laughter increases the production of antibodies that increase immunity and fight infection.
  • Laughter increases left-right brain coherence something that is rare except among seasoned meditators.
  • Laughter increases activity in the amygdala and hippocampus, areas of the brain largely responsible for friendship, love, affection, and regulating our mood.
  • Even anticipation of laughter can increase happy-hormones like oxytocin and serotonin.
  • Laughter releases endorphins in our bodies that are strong enough to act as natural pain killers.
  • Laughter is a natural pick-me-up. If were feeling tired or depleted, laughter increases our oxygen intake, changes the chemical cocktail in our bodies, reduces stress, and allows focused, relaxed energy to come forward.
  • Laughter decreases hormones that make you hungry.
  • Laughter makes it easier to deal with impossible situations.
  • Laughter reduces blood pressure and increases blood flow.
  • Relationships last longer if the people involved in them laugh.
  • Mirthful laughter helps to keep your memory strong.
  • Laughter is mostly unconscious ...

10 Films That Will Blow Your Mind "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Movies have these transcendent moments where everything is just right, from the dialogue to the music to the lighting to the narrative context; everything is just perfect, and something magical happens the film breaks through the screen and does something to you. ~Jason Silva

The whole of life is just like watching a film. Only its as though you always get in ten minutes after the big picture has started, and no-one will tell you the plot, so you have to work it out all yourself from the clues. ~Terry Pratchett

1.) The Zeitgeist Trilogy:

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. ~R. Buckminster Fuller

This series has created much heated debate. Laced with scathing ideas that challenge the mainstream perception of things, it reveals the thin line between conspiracy theory and truth, while challenging the viewer to question everything using their own skeptical research. Although it is artistic propaganda in itself, it shows the other side of the coin of mainstream propaganda and provides a counter-intuitive, devils advocate perspective on the cultural dynamic. Just take it with a grain of salt and be sure to don your skeptics hat as well as your thinking cap.

Overall the trilogy advocates for a transition from the global money-based economic system to a post-scarcity economy, or resource-based economy. It aims to progressively evolve into an automated technological utopianism based on sustainable ecological concepts and the scientific administration of society. Once you get past all the religious, political, and economic buildup, you get to the best part of the series, in my opinion: The Venus Project.

2.) Fight Club:

You are not your job, youre not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. Youre not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis Youre not a beautiful and unique snowflake. Youre the same decaying organic matter as everything else. You are the all singing, all dancing crap of the world. ~Tyler Durden (Chuck Palahniuk)

Fight Club is one of those movies that punches you in the frontal lobe while its kicking you in the nuts.

A Doodler Who Taught Himself to Paint "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Chuck Boyce, Urb (2016), oil on canvas, 28 x 22 inches (all images courtesy Edward Thorp Gallery, New York)

Edward Thorp has always had a knack for finding artists. He has given shows to the under-appreciated (Henri Michaux and Eugene Leroy) and to those who gained a lot of attention then and now (Eric Fischl and Katherine Bradford).

His most recent discovery is Chuck Boyce, who, according to the press release (which I suspect the artist wrote) is:

[] a self-taught artist who began painting a decade ago, in his sixties. A dissatisfied middle-aged graduate student and a decidedly underappreciated poet, he found work as a free-lance writer, an assistant to a high-end antiques dealer, and (most importantly) a father. Eventually, habitual doodling in his notebooks led to a concerted drive to make, of these casual scribbles, the artifacts we know as art. Humans do this: it staves off etc. and etc., and is fun to boot.

What the press release does not mention is that this is the first time Boyces work has ever been exhibited. The show, Chuck Boyce: Recent Paintings in Thorps Project Room, is well worth visiting, particularly since the show closes today.

One other fact that I want to mention is that Boyce is the co-author of the 740-page reference book, Shakespeare A to Z (1990). Boyce may be a self-taught painter, but he definitely has absorbed a lot of art particularly the work of Karl Wirsum, Barbara Rossi, Max Ernst, and Stuart Davis. Boyce paints in oil on modestly sized canvases that are little more than 24 inches high and 20 inches wide. He sets his flat forms (or imaginary personages) in an abstract landscape divided into two or three areas (which roughly translate into land and sky).

An Anarchist Teaches Patients to Make Their Own Meds "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From STAT: In response to rising drug costs, anarchist and biohacker Michael Laufer plans to teach people to manufacture their own medications.

Health professionals have strenuously warned against DIY pharmaceuticals, but Laufer sees his work as a moral crusade against the patent laws and market forces that let drug companies price vital remedies out of reach for many patients.

To deny someone access to a lifesaving medication is murder, he said. And an act of theft [of intellectual property] to prevent an act of murder is morally acceptable.'

David Mielke: Educating in the era of the psychiatric diagnosis "IndyWatch Feed Health"

This week we on the Mad in America podcast we interview David Mielke. David is a psychology graduate and teacher in a California high school who has become increasingly concerned about the number of children that he teaches that have a psychiatric diagnosis and are on psychiatric drugs.

In this interview, we discuss Davids experiences as an educator and how teachers can empower students to have more confidence in themselves.

In the episode we discuss:

  • How David studied psychology and then came to be a teacher at Culver City High School in California.
  • How an experience witnessing electroshock therapy made an indelible mark on his approach to educating.
  • How David knew from interacting with his students that most often their struggles were because of difficult circumstances, such as issues at home, rather than brain diseases in need of diagnosis.
  • How David has observed that many of his students have internalised their diagnostic labels.
  • The relationship between a psychiatric diagnosis and learned helplessness.
  • The tensions that may arise between school policies and guidance, teachers and parents when a psychiatric diagnosis is involved.
  • The power inherent in psychotherapy to connect with and support people in difficulty.

Guest 2032 Assuring Everybody in Line This Roller Coaster That Slams You Into Side of Cliff Is Really Good Value "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

ROLLER COASTER, Tyc. Guest 2032 at Freds Kingdom of Pain and Suffering tried to convince other patrons queued for the popular roller coaster Orphan Maker of the rides incredible price point today, despite the fact it hurtles riders directly into a vertical rock wall, park sources confirmed.

Orphan Maker is really good value, insisted Guest 2032 to those around him in line, as an engineer passed through the crowd to reactivate the station after its most recent run. I see that every single car that passes before me has crashed directly into that rock wall, but Im gonna keep waiting here in line because Ive already been waiting for so long.

Guest 1782 told me it was pretty fun! he added. Officials, however, contend that no remains or dental records for a Guest 1782 had been identified in the piles of wreckage to corroborate this claim.

Paid Protesters Go on Strike "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

WASHINGTON The Union of American Protestors voted to go on strike today, citing inadequate pay and poor working conditions, sources within the organization confirmed.

This marks the first time in the unions nine-month history that they will strike.

This strike is about respect, said union president Seth Bridger. Without us, who would be left to protest the President and his policies? Before we came along, no one said a word against the guy. In the last few months, Ive been harassed, spit on, and hit with pepper spray and thats just when my wife sees how little money Im making.

Workers continued to protest up until the strike deadline at midnight last night. When their demands were not met, they turned their signs around, revealing slogans like No Money, No Resistance, and resumed marching.

Until we unionized, protesting was a shabby and uncoordinated affair, said longtime protester Shannon Cross. One time, I was Roe in the morning and Wade after lunch what an embarrassment that was. We get a lot more accomplished now than we did back then. I mean, sure: civil rights laws were passed and the Vietnam war ended, but who cares about that when youre not making any money?

Billionaire philanthropist George Soros, the sole funder of the protests, didnt mince words in his response.

We have other options. We could outsource our protesting to India: all you need is a giant, movable screen and a Skype connection. Their protests are always so well choreographed as it is, said Soros. Its just a matter of time before we can release mechanical protesters they dont need food, water, or rest. They are, however, still very susceptible to firehoses.

I already gave in to my human chess pieces union, Soros added. I wont be making that mistake again.

Woodcutting When the SHTF: What You Need to Know To Hastily Acquire a Wood Supply "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

ReadyNutrition Readers, this piece is designed to help you plan out your woodcutting when the SHTFbecause youll have to do it on the Q-T and keep your noise signature at a minimum.  Seems easy, right?  Well, its not complicated, but there are some finer points to it.  Right now (with half of my state of residence burning) we are not allowed to use chainsaws to cut wood.  Yep, Ive been hitting it with the bowsaw and the axeon low smoke days.

Bringing me to the next point.  You will need certain tools, to keep the noise down and also to conserve fuel.  Here they are:

  1. Bowsaw, 39-40 inch blade
  2. Bowsaw, 18-24 inch blade
  3. Axe, single-edged (I like anything made by Kobalt)
  4. Hatchet make sure it is one solid, continuous pieceEstwing makes some good ones
  5. Maul: Preferably 8-lbs or more
  6. Splitting Wedges assorted sizes
  7. Good Sharpening tool, and assorted sharpening stones

Your ax is going to be used to fell dead standing timber and also to segment large-diameter trees that would take forever with a bowsaw.  None of the methods are totally silent, however, in comparison to the chainsaw, they are.  This is a reason that I place so much emphasis on cutting wood in the off season: that is to say, dont wait until the fall.  Cut wood throughout the summer.

Heating is one thing, but cooking is another.  If you need to prepare food, youll need that fireplace or woodstove to be well-fueled.  When youre trimming branches, if theyre about four inches in diameter or less, use the short-bladed bowsaw.  The longer blade is used on your larger pieces, up to about a foot max.  Then it is up to you to quarter them with your ax, your maul, and your splitting wedges.

If you have a fireplace or a woodstove, you need to measure the diagonal inside length, knock it down a couple of inches, and form a template for yourself.  I use an old 1 x 4 piece for myself.  This way you can use that piece of board to set against the edge of your log and scribe to make a cut for the piece to fit in your fireplace or woodstove.  This will save you a lot of time measuring, and you can keep the template for a long timejust make sure it doesnt become mixed up in your wood supply.

After the SHTF, you can also bring pieces into your basement to saw and chop away at to reduce the noise.  You want to cut wood at times when there are other noises a...

EXCLUSIVE: Mandalay Bay owner insisted security guard Jesus Campos appear ONLY on Ellen and not be grilled by TV hardhitters fearing his answers to timeline questions could result in massive lawsuits from victims of the massacre

  • Jesus Campos, the Mandalay Bay hotel security guard who first alerted police to the Vegas gunman, appeared on Ellen for his first and only interview Wednesday
  • MGM, which owns Mandalay Bay,  thought Campos might not keep his story straight under the pressure of the TV lights and hard questioning
  • Campos booked interviews with all the major networks last week before cancelling at the last minute and disappearing
  • Union boss David Hickey  who was helping set up the deal, told DailyMail.com  It certainly wasnt my choice that he should appear on that circus'
  • Ellen did not press him on the official timeline of the shooting, which has changed three times since the massacre
  • MGM has disputed the official timeline, which insinuated they may have waited six minutes to call cops 
  • Police later changed the timeline again, saying that Campos immediately called in the shooting as soon as he was injured  

Mandalay Bay shooting hero Jesus Campos was pressured into giving his only interview to Ellen DeGeneres because the giant company that owns the Las Vegas casino feared he would spill the beans about the shooting timeline if he was grilled by real journalists, DailyMail.com has learned exclusively.

French parliament adopts controversial anti-terror bill

http://www.france24.com/en/20171018-french-parliament-tough-anti-terror-bill-controversial-macron
CHRISTOPHE ARCHAMBAULT / AFP | The French Senate.

Text by NEWS WIRES

Latest update : 2017-10-18

The French parliament on Wednesday adopted a tough new anti-terrorism bill that gives authorities vastly expanded powers to search homes, restrict movement and close places of worship.

The bill, which was passed by the Senate after modifications to address concerns about civil liberties, makes permanent some of the exceptional measures contained in the state of emergency imposed after the November 2015 Paris attacks.

The emergency laws expire on November 1.

The most punitive elements of the new bill will be reviewed annually by parliament and are scheduled to lapse at the end of 2020.

House arrest

The interior minister can place suspected jihadist sympathisers who are not accused of a specific crime under a loose form of house arrest.

Under the state of emergency, the individual was confined to his or her home.

The "individual surveillance measures" contained in the bill, which can last up to a year, allow the individuals to go beyond their front door but they must remain with the boundaries of their town or city.

If they want to go further they must wear an electronic bracelet.

They have 48 hours to appeal the restrictions to a judge and must report to the police once a day.

Home searches

A local police chief can ask a judge for a warrant to search -- the bill uses the term "visit" -- the homes of people with suspected terror links.

The person whose home is searched can be held for four hours, during which documents, data and objects can be seized.

Places of worship

The top government official in each of Franc...

Future monarchs to be chosen by ITV talent show The Rex Factor "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Cowell sure this is the way to crack AmericaChanges to the royal succession laws unveiled this week mean that future potential kings and queens of the United Kingdom will now be selected by a new ITV talent show which requires contestants to prove their ability as a monarch and win a public telephone vote.

Im proud to announce this exclusive deal with the Royal Family, said Simon Cowell today. The show will air within 14 days of a royal death and will run for up to 10 weeks. Potential regents will have to complete a series of demanding tasks, including waving, corgi training and shaking hands with visiting dignitaries. The winner will be crowned live in Westminster Abbey and overnight their face will be everywhere on stamps, coins and bank-notes.

The show, to be called The Rex Factor, will feature all the staples of the TV talent show format. Well start with auditions to weed out the nutters, explained Cowell, and then its off to boot camp. This is where aspiring royals will really be put through their paces on their Nazi impersonations and Germanic lineage. The bookies have already installed Prince Harry as the early favourite.

The show, which is open to royals and commoners alike, will split contestants into the usual categories of the boys, the girls, the over 25s and the groups.  Each category will have a celebrity mentor, with Sarah Ferguson, Paul Burrell, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson and Louis Walsh already signed up.

Future contestants are already getting excited in anticipation of a royal death creating a vacancy on the throne. This is all Ive ever wanted I was born to reign, said Charlie, a hopeful in the over 25s category. Ive been knocking on the door for decades and I just want a chance to show people what I can do. He then added tearfully, Im doing this for my mum who passed away last week. Bloody hell, I thought she was never going to die.

Despite the excitement, traditionalists have yet to be convinced by the show. Whats wrong with the established convention of just passing the crown down the bloodline? Either way, the end result will be an institution that loses millions of viewers, and a winner who quickly becomes irrelevant, forgotten about and can only get gigs opening ftes.

Message from Mike Quinsey 10-20-17 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A new Mike Quinsey.

Whilst time continues to speed up, your concept of events upon Earth leaves you with the impression that there is a stalemate and that things are at a standstill. However, we can tell you that behind the scenes, much has already happened and it is ensuring that the New Age continues to establish itself whilst keeping the old energies at bay. So do not despair as all is progressing well and in accordance with the plan for Humanity.

Presently much hovers around the long awaited revaluation of the currencies, and the countries who have pledged to be a part of it are ready to participate. Be assured that the apparent delays are not going to hold up progress, and unseen forces are working to ensure that once the go-ahead is given no time is lost in speeding up things.

When the real news is able to get coverage it is significant that on a worldwide basis there is less enthusiasm for acts of war. Countries are now moving towards peaceful settlements of their differences, and it has the overwhelming support of the people. There was a time when they would not have thought twice before launching themselves into a war, but no longer.

Humanity is on the road to success and there can be no going back to the old ways. Of course they need the support and backing of those people who are ready to lead a peaceful campaign. So be assured that such souls are on Earth with you, waiting in the wings for their opportunity to step forward.

A recent study mapped the worlds dry forests using a relatively new tool that combines creative satellite image analysis with local- and national-scale knowledge. Natural resource agencies worldwide inventory their countrys vegetation cover, land uses, and forest carbon stocks in order to quantify the extent and impacts of land use change as well as their progress toward commitments to international treaties. However, they often lack the tools to compile and analyze the necessary data on land use change. New online platforms now enable viewing and analysis of global-scale imagery but cannot suggest the drivers of land cover change. Commercially available high-resolution remote sensing data are expensive, inconsistent in availability, and hard to access for non-experts. Dry forest canopy in the Ankarana region of Madagascar.

It is a plug-in for Google Earth that enables visual photo interpretation of very high spatial and temporal resolution satellite imagery, made available through three repositories: Google Earth, Google Earth Engine, and Bing Maps.

Jack Kerouacs Hand-Drawn Cover for On the Road (1952) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

This falls under the category, If you want it done right, you have to do it yourself."

In 1950, when Jack Kerouac released his first novel, The Town and the City, he was less than impressed by the book cover produced by his publisher, Harcourt Brace. (Click here to see why.) So, in 1952, when he began shopping his second novel, the great beat classic On the Road, Kerouac went ahead and designed his own cover. He sent it to a potential publisher A.A. Wyn, with a little note typed at the very top:

Dear Mr. Wyn:

I submit this as my idea of an appealing commercial cover expressive of the book. The cover for The Town and the City was as dull as the title and the photo backflap. Wilbur Pippins photo of me is the perfect On the Road one it will look like the face of the figure below.

J.K.

Wyn turned down the novel, and it wouldn't get published until 1957. It would, however, become a bestseller and be published with many different covers through the years. They're all on display here.

Automatic Brain: The Magic of the Unconscious Mind "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Automatic Brain: The Magic of the Unconscious Mind is a fascinating first segment of a two-part documentary about the brain. The 52-minute film is based on the belief that your subconscious mind manages about 90 percent of everything you do whether you are asleep or awake. Through a series of interviews and entertaining demonstrations, neuroscientists and magicians team up to explain and vividly demonstrate the relationship between your conscious and unconscious brain.

You may be surprised to discover your conscious mind plays only a minor role in guiding your life. In fact, most of what you think, say and do every day is a function of your automatic, or unconscious brain (also known as your subconscious). As such, much of the time, your brain is running your life on autopilot.

For example, think about brushing your teeth or even driving, and how often you perform those and other routine tasks without being fully conscious of them. The movie is seasoned with plenty of sleight of hand tricks and visual experiments designed to both educate and entertain you. If you have children at home, you might want to share some of the trick segments with them. Watching with others or alone, I think you will benefit from taking a closer look at the inner workings of your brain.

What Do Scientists Know About the Unconscious Mind?

Given that your brain weighs just 3 pounds and has been the subject of countless scientific studies, you might think weve already learned all we can about it. To the contrary, the brain is remarkably complex and we have much, much more to discover. This film suggests your unconscious mind drives most of your daily routines and habits.

The brain decides things before we can consciously think about it, says Allan Snyder, D.Sc., director of the University of Sydneys Center for the Mind. Decisions are almost dictated to us. For starters, consider how your brain can handle this mixed-up sentence: Wyh sohuld yuo wacth tihs flim atbou yoru barin?

Without much effort or conscious thought, your brain fills in the gaps of perception, enabling you to understand the question to be: Why should you watch this film about your brain? Psychology professor John Bargh, Ph.D., founder of the automaticity in cognition, motivation and evaluation laboratory at Yale University, suggests the unconscious mind is asserting itself more and more as researchers continue to study the human brain. He states:

Unconscious influences are everywhere, and as research progresses, it's never going the other way. Were not saying oh, we used to think these things were all unconscious, but now we find out they're conscious. It's exactly the opposite....

Does Sickness Smell? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Your olfactory sense, or the ability to smell, is integral to your health. Inside your nasal passages are two patches of cells designed to detect odors. They are made up of nearly 6 million olfactory receptor cells that allow you to detect and differentiate thousands of different scents. Although impressive, other animals have an even more acute sense of smell as often their survival is dependent on being able to smell enemies or their food.1

Your sense of smell is also intimately tied to your emotions, memories, ability to taste and even to sexual attraction. Research demonstrates that your ability to smell may peak at age 8. According to different studies, you may begin to lose sensitivity to scent between age 15 and your early 20s.2 However, that loss in sensitivity to scent is not consistent from person to person as some 80-year-olds have a sense of smell as keen as that of a young adult.

Some degradation of your sense of smell, and therefore your ability to taste food, may be related to air pollution.3 A combination of solvents, pesticides, disinfectants, pharmaceuticals and perfumes may have a negative effect over the years on your ability to discern scent and on your sensitivity to smell.4 Loss of this ability may affect your capacity to pull up memories from the past.

Research shows odors are an effective reminder of experience,5 which may be tied to the way your brain processes odors and memories. Researchers have also found your sense of smell may predict your longevity, and you may be able to smell the scent of illness. In other words, the relationship between your sense of smell and your health is a two-way street.

Illness Has a Smell

From the early days of medical practice, doctors have used smell and taste to determine if their patients had a disease. Examples may be found from the late 1600s when English physician Thomas Willis observed the...

Ashlynne Mikes Murderer & Rapist Receives a Life Sentence with No Chance of Parole "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Tom Begaye, Jr. will Die in Prison

Published October 21, 2017

ALBUQUERQUE On Friday, the U.S. District Court, District of New Mexico, sentenced Tom Begaye Jr. to life in prison for the murder and sexual assault of 11-year-old Ashlynne Mike.

President Russell Begaye attended the sentencing and said the Navajo Nation has mourned the loss of Mike ever since learning of her horrific death in May 2016.

The sheer brutality of this crime committed against a child is so deplorable that its difficult to fathom justice in this matter, Navajo Nation President Begaye said. Tom Begaye Jr. received life in prison today for the brutal murder and sexual assault of Ashlynne Mike. As the court presented the details of this tragic crime, it called into question if justice can truly be served in this case? No child deserves to die like this.

Ashlynne Mike

During the proceedings, Mikes mom Pam Foster said her life changed forever when her daughter was murdered. Foster said she has no pity for Tom Begaye Jr. and hoped that he would be prosecuted to the fullest extent.

A part of me died with Ashlynne, she said. In the morning, I listen for her voice and my arms long to hold her. My angel did not deserve to die the way she did.

Gary Mike, Ashlynnes father, said that no family should ever have to go through what his family did in losing their daughter.

We have to put an end to his intention, Mike said. We ask that he never sees freedom again.

U.S. District Judge William P. Chip Johnson of the District of New Mexico presided over the sentencing and said the crimes perpetrated against Mike were so heinous that he was at a loss for...

National Congress of American Indians Says No to New Oil & Gas Development in New Mexicos Chaco Canyon Region "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

 

Published October 21, 2017
NCAI sends a strong message to federal government on energy development and its impact on tribes and cultural sites.

MILWAUKEE The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) voted Friday to approve a resolution calling for a moratorium on oil and gas drilling in the San Juan Basin in northwest New Mexico. The San Juan Basin includes the world-renowned Chaco Canyon National Park and its associated sacred sites spread across tribal land and public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).

NCAI resolution MKE-17-008 is a direct response to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinkes call to approve new drilling permits and hold more lease auctions on public land near Chaco Canyon National Park. On July 6, 2017, Secretary Zinke signed an order for the Interior Department to approve applications for permit to drill (APDs) and to hold new oil and gas lease sales in several jurisdictions. More than 90% of public lands in the region are already leased for oil and gas drilling with very little sacred land remaining unfettered from drill pads, pipelines, and industrial access roads.

The Bureau of Land Managements (BLM) Farmington Field office is currently preparing a Resource Management Plan (RMP) amendment that will shape future development in northwest New Mexico. Tribes throughout the Four Corners area are very vocal about the need to respect the RMP amendment process. Collectively, they propose a moratorium on new drilling until the BLM plan is complete.

Fridays NCAI resolution outlines continued support for protection of Chaco Canyon National Park, as well as sites on public land that lie outside the monument boundary. This tribal action opposes the Interior Departments directive to issue new leases and permits in...

What are the 3 factors that induced rapid population growth? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

This article comes from a response to a Quora question and sumarises a lot of material from my books on population theory.[1] It raises a number of factors that 'traditional' demographic theory usually cannot investigate due to its very narrow range of inquiry. There are more than three factors mentioned here and they are: Sea-level rise after last glacial maximus pushed populations together and created more fertility opportunities; Changing transport technology created more fertility opportunities; The rise of cities created more fertility opportunities; and the commodification of land and the rise of money created more fertility opportunities; local tribes had immunity to local pathogens so had lower infant mortality and better life expectancy; Inheritance law variations and the creation of land-less labor; The importance of fossil fuel (coal, petroleum) in expanding and supporting bigger populations; to which I could have added, the importance of wood supply as a pre-fossil-fuel limiter of population. I also mention that the theory explored does not conflict with Hamilton's inclusive fitness theory which Dawkins used to develop his 'Selfish Gene' theory, however it does identify countervailing forces to the associated 'Every creature breeds to the maximum' theory.


These examples all come out of Evolutionary Sociologist, Sheila Newmans book series: Demography Territory Law: The Rules of Animal and Human Populations, Countershock Press, 2013 and Demography Territory Law 2: Land-Tenure and the Rise of Capitalism in Britain. Also a short book by the same author, called, The Urge to Disperse, 2012. I think that all are available at amazon.com and at Lulu.com. Newman also has a big chapter on other population theories in her Rules of Animal and Human populations. Her theories do not conflict with Hamiltons inclusive fitness theory, but they do identify a countervailing force.

Probiotics Destroy Toxic Chemicals In Our Gut For Us "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

It is an awesome fact of nature that we have trillions of organisms within our body containing completely foreign DNA some of which break down toxic chemicals that we humans have created to kill other things, but are now killing us, e.g. pesticides. Who are these strange helpers?

Bacteria!

Wait. Arent bacteria supposed to harm us? Arent they the enemy in the endless war against infection?

Well, when our immunity fails, some can grow out of bounds opportunistically. But they respond to the environment within which they are raised, not unlike most other creatures. Provide organic, wholesome vegetables, for instance, and you have a hotbed of positive activity in your gut. Provide sugar, processed foods and an increasing burden of chemicals and it can get ugly in there!

Also, believe it or not, ancient bacteria teamed up with our cellular ancestors eons ago to produce the energy-producing organelles within our cells called mitochondria. So, are we really that different from bacteria? No, on some level, we ARE bacteria, spurning some researchers to describe us as meta-organisms, composed as we are of many different living systems working symbiotically.

How To Train Your Cat To Walk On A Leash "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Your housecat may be perfectly content basking in a ray of sun from the window, but put a harness and leash on your feline, and watch his inner tiger emerge.

Not every pet cat will automatically transform into an adventure cat but you never know until you try.

Taking your cat outdoors can give him the freedom to experience another environment outside your home, with new smells, textures and sounds to spare. If done properly, your cat can feel the wind in his fur in a safe and controlled way, without fear of speeding cars, poisons or predators.

Training your cat to walk on a leash can be beneficial for both owner and cat, explains Sherry Woodard, national animal behavior expert at Best Friends Animal Society. The activity can provide a stimulating experience that enriches your cats life, a great bonding opportunity and extra exercise for you and your kitty. In addition, leash training a foster animal may also help the cat build skills that make her more attractive to potential adopters.

While leash training can be done at any age, it may be easier for an energetic kitten than an older cat already stuck in her ways. Most kittens are comfortable and social, so theyre pretty outgoing, Woodard tells The Dodo.

If the cat doesnt seem comfortable right away, take things slow. It really should be something you enjoy together, Woodard says. I would encourage people to take their time, take baby steps and use incentives. I think a lot of cats will surprise people in that if we encourage them in appropriate ways, we can get them to enjoy things they didnt think they could enjoy.

Find the right harness



Choosing the perfect harness may require some trial and error. There are so many harnesses to try now, that purchasing one can be a little tricky, Woodard explains. Making sure that the harness will wrap around your cat or kitten and stay on securely might mean that you actually end up purchasing a couple of...

The Top 10 Characteristics of Highly Evolved Beings "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Jeff; Divine Cosmos

Highly evolved beings, and the civilizations that they create, embrace principles and ways of being that create highly beneficial outcomes for all. Their civilizations are characterized by cooperation, harmony, and love rather than competition, conflict, and fear.

The net result is civilizations where freedom, prosperity, and happiness abound. Their example serves as a great model for Humanity to emulate if it truly wants to create the better world that many of us are hoping for.

What highly evolved civilizations you ask? Well believe it or not, there are many highly evolved civilizations within our galaxy, and many more beyond.


There are two reasons that their existence is not apparent to us; (1) most of them exist in higher dimensions of our physical universe, so they're not visible to us, and (2) they aren't all that interested in direct interactions with a civilization as primitive as ours. But rest assured that many of these civilizations are very interested in facilitating the evolution of Humanity and are doing so in a number of subtle ways behind the scenes. This is a fascinating topic beyond the scope of this article that I may explore in the future, follow the blog to stay tuned.

I was inspired to write this article by the in-depth discussion of this topic found in the book Conversations with God - Book 4: Awaken the Species and this article is essentially a summary of that discussion peppered with my own insights.

The Relationship Between Light & Dark And Positive & Negative Polarity "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Todd; In5D.com

In our current language system, the terms light and dark, and Positive and Negative polarity are being used interchangeably. The following is an overview of the construct we find ourselves within:

Darkness is the absence of light. It does not contain a polarity aspect. It is the absence of light which equates to the absence of information, the absence of consciousness, and the absence of love. Darkness is the nothingness that is enlightened by consciousness.

The cosmos began with the God source. Infinite energy, knowledge and love. The God source looked out from itself and saw that the cosmos was filled with the nothingness of darkness. There was no love, there was no knowledge, there was no awareness. In its attempt to fill the vastness of the cosmos with the unlimited knowledge, light and love it contained it began to divide itself. It sent the initial conscious God Fragments out and said;


Go, do, create as you see fit as you are imbued with my abilities. Bring light to the infinite darkness.

The original God fragments did not have any prior experience with creation and began to experiment. At the center of each God fragment they begin to create their unique galaxy from the nucleus outward.

A Path To The Self: Three Ways To Gain Self-Knowledge "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Conscious Reminder

Through self-knowledge, you recognize your divine nature and the deeper purpose to life. You create a larger context in which to view your existence. You learn how to interpret and organize your experiences. You develop an inner connection with all creation. Self-knowledge helps you blend world and spirit.

Along the way you face the demon of attachments. Some attachments are healthy, such as those to family and friends. But you must release your need to control other people and events. You must deal with challenging situations or choose to let them go. Self-knowledge strengthens your ability to grow and expand your sense of self.


Develop the capacity for concentration and stillness with meditation.

Quiet times alone help you awaken to the truth of your divine nature. For a short while you step away from the constant demands of the outside world. You let go of false beliefs and illusions. You let go of feelings of separation. During times of stillness you free yourself from habitual patterns that limit your spiritual growth.

The 5 Traps Used to Shut Down and Limit Human Consciousness "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Sigmund Fraud; Waking Times

The human condition at present is one of slavery, a new kind of slavery, where bondage is psychological and spiritual rather than physical. Human consciousness is the target in a broad war of control where people willingly acquiesce to social conditions which clearly fail to serve their best interests, even doing them harm.

We accept the status quo of warfare, fear, environmental destruction, greed, corruption, poisoned health and false scarcity because weve been herded into traps which hold us hostage with false beliefs and the appearance of comfort. In reality, though, breaking through these traps would allow us to apply the principles of peace, sustainability, exploration, acceptance and progress to improving the human condition.

Firstly, though, we have to see and acknowledge the boundaries of the prison we are in.

Theres five essential boxes for human consciousness, theres five things that shut human consciousness down. Five models that attempt to keep people rigidly inside of their walls. And if youre inside these boxes, youre not going to expand your awareness to understand the actual truth of whats going on in our world. ~Mark Passio

Nanochips and Smart Dust: The Dangerous New Face of the Human Microchipping Agenda "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Nanochips and Smart Dust are the new technological means for the advancement of the human microchipping agenda.

Due to their incredibly tiny size, both nanochips and Smart dust have the capacity to infiltrate the human body, become lodged within, and begin to set up a synthetic network on the inside which can be remotely controlled from the outside.

Needless to say, this has grave freedom, privacy and health implications, because it means the New World Order would be moving from controlling the outside world (environment/ society) to controlling the inside world (your body). This article explores what the advent of nanochips and Smart dust could mean for you.

Christians In Brazil Outraged Over Transgender Jesus Play "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As the Brazilian arts scene becomes a battleground for cultural wars, Christians and conservatives have reportedly been protesting against a number of art exhibits and plays, including one which portrays Jesus Christ as a transgender woman. The Associated Press highlighted several controversial cases gripping Brazil, including court battles to get The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven theatrical performance banned.

In Brazil, we have a very ugly habit of sweeping everything under the carpet, said Renata Carvalho, the actress who performs the one-woman controversial show. This just sheds light on what people think. I think its excellent that the masks are falling. The Queen of Heaven show has been put on more than 60 times in a tour throughout Brazil, despite conservative Christians petitioning to courts for a ban. READ MORE

Estonias trees: Valued resource or squandered second chance? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

When the last of the Russian troops pulled out of Estonia in 1994, for many their departure was bittersweet. While most Estonians were eager to join the Western world and reestablish cultural ties with Finland and other Nordic countries, the countrys transition from communism to capitalism was hindered by poverty, cultural barriers, and dilapidated infrastructure. Today, however, Estonia appears to be coming into its own. The country has joined the EU, ranks 30th in the world on the Human Development Index, and has one of the fastest-growing economies in Europe. Estonia now has the autonomy to decide how it is going to allocate its resources, and how it wants to shape its identity on the international stage. Central to this decision is one notable parting gift left by the countrys Soviet occupiers: trees. A protected old-growth forest in Estonia. According to Global Forest Watch, 3 percent of the countrys forests are primary forests like this one. Photo by Asko Lhmus. Trees are one of the few positive things inherited from the age of Soviet domination, said Linda-Mari Vli, founder of Helping Estonias Forests, a conservation-oriented citizens initiative. While Estonia is historically a tree-dense country, by the early 20th century much of its forestland had been converted to farms. Under Soviet rule, however, private landownership, and private farms, were abandoned for large collectives. By the time Estonia gained independence, the forest had reclaimed much of its former territory. The country now has over 50 percent tree cover, according to satellite data from

150 Afghan troops in U.S. military have gone AWOL "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

More than 150 Afghan troops brought to the U.S. for military training have gone AWOL since 2005, with 13 of them still unaccounted for and perhaps living as here illegal immigrants now, an inspector general said in a new report Friday. Part of the problem is that the U.S. never puts the trainees through an in-person interview and exempts them from registering as aliens when they arrive both steps that other

visitors would normally have to go through. In-person interviews and requiring the troops to register beforehand would help the government gauge whether someone is likely to go absent without leave, and would give immigration officers information about relatives in the U.S. as starting points when someone does go AWOL, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said. But the State Department rejected those suggestions. READ MORE

Billionaire Democratic mega-donor launches Trump impeachment campaign "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Billionaire investor and Democratic backer Tom Steyer has launched a national campaign calling for President Donald Trumps impeachment, only nine months into the presidents term.

He accuses the president of taking the U.S. to the brink of nuclear war and obstructing justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey, among other charges.

U.S. Ran $666 Billion Deficit In Fiscal 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The federal budget deficit widened in the fiscal year 2017 to the sixth highest deficit on record as government spending growth outpaced growth in tax collections for the second year in a row, the Treasury Department said Thursday. The budget shortfall rose to $666 billion in the fiscal year that ended on Sept. 30, up $80 billion, or 14%, from the fiscal year 2016. That tracks with an estimate from the Congressional Budget Office, which had predicted a $668 billion deficit for the last fiscal year.

Federal tax receipts reached a record high in the fiscal year 2017, at $3.3 trillion, thanks to slightly faster growth, according to a senior Treasury official. But government outlays also hit a record high last year at nearly $4 trillion, 3% higher than they were in the previous fiscal year, thanks to increased spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as higher interest payments on the public debt.

Crypto Currency Calm Before The Storm: Governments Are Studying It To Find The Means To Take Control Of It And You "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

crypto3

The United States (and the world) has been using the worthless fiat federal reserve note that is not backed by any true tangible asset.  The only backing is not even the full faith and credit of the United States government, because the government is too far in debt to have any credit.  Faith disappeared a long time ago: our faith in elected officials as public servants.  Instead, they serve themselves upon the labors of the public, and the public services them, in every sense of the word.

Cryptocurrency is an illusion.  The new shell game is to replace one illusionthe fiat currencywith another illusion, the bitcoin.  Russia announced last week several measures to deal with the Cryptocurrencyfirst, by issuing a Crypto-ruble.  If you read the fine print, the Russian government is moving in to tax and regulate it, at a rate of 13% on trades for profit, as well as Crypto-Rubles that suddenly appear out of nowhere.

It wont affect the Black Market as much, because 13% is going to be paid to turn a blind eye to the billions of rubles being stolen by the Russian Mafia and oligarchy alike.  The gimmick here is for the government to take a chunk out of it: for now.  The reason now is being used, is that eventually theyll shift gears, pass legislation, and eventually outlaw private trading in it that is not government-sanctioned or government-approved.

A government is only concerned with perpetuating itself and maintaining power.  The most basic way it does this is by controlling the currency of the nation, regulating it, and taxing the citizens.  In the United States, it has been reported by several sources that JP Morgan Chase is going to embrace Cryptocurrency.  Europe is well on its way to establishing a Euro-BitCoin, and China has recently relaxed some measures regarding it.

This is the calm before the storm: the governments are studying it, and studying the masses to find the means to take control of it.

Find Your Power Colour Using Astrology "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There are many different ways to determine your power colour. Some people use Feng Shui, others consult their guides, but using your astrology sign can also point you in the right direction.

Finding your power colour is about finding a colour that you feel good in. It is about finding a colour that resonates with your soul and feels comfortable and natural.

When you wear your power colour or introduce it into your home, not only does it help you to feel powerful but it can also raise your vibration and make you stand out from the crowd.

If you are curious what your power colour is all you need to do is look to your Sun Sign

Aries Red

Being the first sign of the zodiac, Aries is the leader and represents courage, boldness and fire. Aries is also ruled by Mars, which is coincidentally also known as the red planet. Red in all shades and hues is a power colour for those with the Sun in Aries. It can help to unlock and release Aries energy, helping you to find your true power. Depending on your mood and personality, you can also experiment with bolder or softer shades of red in your wardrobe and around your home.

Taurus Green

Taurus holds grounding, earthy energy and is ruled by the goddess planet, Venus. Green is the perfect colour to compliment Taurus energy because it represents practicality, stability and groundedness. Green is also the colour of the heart chakra, helping to unlock the lighter and more creative characteristics of this sign. Experiment with bright and muted tones of green in your wardrobe and around the home.

Gemini Yellow

Gemini is the communicator and messenger of the zodiac. They are wise and knowledgeable, but also friendly and sociable which is why yellow is such a strong colour for them. Yellow represents knowledge but also laughter and joy. It is a bright and happy colour that can also be used in many ways. Yellow is also an active colour which can help Geminis get out of their head and into a place of action.

Cancer- White/Light Grey

Cancer is the sensitive, nurturer of the zodiac, making white the perfect colour. White has the ability to deflect energy, making it the perfect choice for those with the Sun in Cancer, as they can be prone to taking on the emotions of others. White is also very neutral and relaxing, and can i...

The Worlds First Electric Yacht Is Here, And The Photos Will Make You Swoon "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Eco-friendly and lavish? You bet. While a yacht is an out-of-reach investment for many, theres no harm in appreciating the worlds first fully-electric yacht which was designed by Hinckley. With twin 80 horsepower electric motors and waterproof BMS i3 lithium-ion batteries, the vessel is designed for smooth sailing on the open waters.

Credit: Hinckley

The Dasher yacht, which made its debut on Inhabitat, is completely powered by electricity and is zero-emissions. Said Scott Bryant, the director of New Product Development, Hinckley started building boats in 1928. Weve been known for building timeless boats built in the Maine tradition, and weve always been known for not just innovating for the sake of innovating, but using technology to augment the user experience.

The yacht is 28 and 6 in length and can cruise through waters at speeds of 10 miles per hour (mph). At this pace, it has a range of about 40 miles. When cranked up to 18 to 27 miles, its range decreased to approximately 20-25 miles. Thanks to dual 50 amp charging cables, the yacht can be charged back up within 4 hours.

Rats were randomly assigned into five groups: animals undergoing a sham CLP (sham group); animals undergoing CLP (CLP group); animals undergoing CLP and treated with AS-IV at 2.5 mg/kg bw (low-dose AS-IV [L-AS] group), at 5 mg/kg bw (mid-dose AS-IV [M-AS] group), and at 10 mg/kg bw (high-dose AS-IV [H-AS] group). At 6 h, 12 h and 24 h post-CLP surgery, six rats were respectively sacrificed to collect blood and lung tissue samples. The levels of arterial blood gas index, lung water content, protein level and leukocyte counts (total amount, neutrophils and lymphocytes) in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) and cytokines such as TNF- and IL-6 in BALF were measured at each time point in different groups. HE-staining and optical microscopy were performed to examine the pathological changes in lungs. The 72 h-survival rate of each group was also recorded. PaO2 was decreased significantly, while the lung water content, BALF protein level, cell numbers, BALF cytokine TNF- and IL-6 levels were increased significantly for CLP group as compared with sham group. Moreover, pathological injury was observed in lung tissue indicating the successful sepsis-induced ALI model. Speaking of the effect of AS-IV, we founded that, compared with the CLP group, the AS-IV treatment groups could significantly alleviate all the above negative changes exited in the CLPgroup in a dose-dependent manner. What's more, the pathological injury was also gradually improved by AS-IV treatment compared with the CLP rats. AS-IV exerts its protective effect against sepsis-induced ALI in rats via improving pulmonary ventilation function, decreasing the permeability of alveolar epithelium and capillary as well as repressing lung inflammation.

Crimewatch finale to answer all fans questions "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

After a 33 year run, the BBCs Crimewatch is to come to an end, with an extended 5 hour episode which will, according to the shows creator, resolve all plot threads left hanging over the years.

Though writers have insisted there was always a 45-year story arc planned from the start, some viewers complained the show gave up on its original plans in order to elongate its run by settling into a crime-of-the-week pattern. Many of the plots seemed to be left without resolution, leading critics to claim they were making it up as they went along. Others have suggested the show jumped the shark when the will-they-wont-they romantic tension between the Jeremy Vine and Sophie Rayworth characters came to nothing, and when popular character Jill Dando was written out of the show in Season 15. Reviewers also criticised the show for bad acting, a reliance on stock villains and the tendency for the characters to repeatedly explain the plot points to the viewers. However, the show has also been highly praised for its innovative use of audience participation, in which the viewers are encouraged to call the show to predict which characters were responsible for the hold-ups and murders.

Head writer and showrunner Andrew Parry told us: Its been an amazing 33 years and we appreciate the time our fans have invested in the show. Although the end has come sooner than we had anticipated, were determined to make this finale a fitting one. Needless to say, theres a lot of strands there to wrap up, but we believe viewers wont be disappointed with what we have in mind. Well be revisiting villains last seen in 1984 and revealing which crimes were real and which were side flashes in the alternate meta-universe Crimewatch studio established in Season 8.

With its sprawling plot and literally hundreds of characters, internet forums have been buzzing with predictions of what the finale is to reveal. Fan theories are mainly centred on the role of the Nick Ross, who is very much the linchpin of the show, tying the myriad storylines together. However, opinions are split on whether Ross, whos unsettling catch phrase dont have nightmares became a national obsession, is the shadowy mastermind behind the crimewave or merely a pawn many believe Ross is only a bit player in the shadowy group known as The Corporation.

The episode will coincide with a release of a box set of all 858 episodes containing 1,500 hours of material with cast commentary. Ratings are expected to be high; however, many fans remain cautious after the similarly-themed Police Five show resulted in a final episode with few questions answered and the main character breaking out of the television studio to find himself stranded on a remote lion-infested island.

Critical Insights From the 2017 AMERIND Risk Institute in Albuquerque And a Breathtaking Hot Air Balloon Flight! "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Merian Juneau, the Human Resources Manager for the Quinault Nation Enterprise Board

Published October 20, 2017

 ALBUQUERQUE  The 2017 AMERIND Risk Institute turned the spotlight on critical topicssuch as smart actions to improve survival rates in the event of an active shooter, understanding the claims process, and Tribal Workers Compensation. Hosted October 10-11 at Sandia Resort & Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Institute delivered engaging training sessions, networking activities, and a great lineup of exhibitors showcasing their products and services.

The AMERIND Risk Board of Directors and Staff thank you for joining us at the 2017 AMERIND Risk Institute. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge, support and necessary resources to continue to foster safe environments within the home, workplace and Tribal communities throughout Indian Country, said Derek Valdo (Pueblo of Acoma), AMERIND Risk CEO.

In his welcoming speech, Chairman Greg Borene enthusiastically thanked AMERIND Risk members for attending the Institute, and shared his appreciation for AMERINDs dedicated Board and team. He additionally commented on the recent, devastating wildfires in California and Montana and the hurricanes in Florida. We just never know when destruction will hit, Chairman Borene said, underscoring the importance of safety preparedness. AMERIND Members were fortunate that the damage in both areas were minimal; next time, we may not be so fortunate.

During the General Assembly, Kenneth Lucero, a Field Representative in the office of U.S. Senator Martin Heinrichs (D-New Mexico), took the stage to share information about Sen. Heinrichs new proposed bill. The Tribal Connect Act of 2017 aims to empower Tribes with E-Rate program funding to deploy broadband.

Below, AMERIND Risk breaks down a few of the topics covered at the Institute:

Astragaloside could efficiently improve lipid metabolism in obese mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2016 Jul 22 ;6:30190. Epub 2016 Jul 22. PMID: 27444146 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV improves lipid metabolism in obese mice by alleviation of leptin resistance and regulation of thermogenic network. Abstract:  Obesity is a worldwide threat to public health in modern society, which may result from leptin resistance and disorder of thermogenesis. The present study investigated whether astragaloside IV (ASI) could prevent obesity in high-fat diet (HFD)-fed and db/db mice. In HFD-fed mice, ASI prevented body weight gain, lowered serum triglyceride and total cholesterol levels, mitigated liver lipid accumulation, reduced fat tissues and decreased the enlargement of adipose cells. In metabolic chambers, ASI lessened appetite of the mice, decreased their respiratory exchange ratio and elevated VCO2 and VO2 without altering circadian motor activity. Moreover, ASI modulated thermogenesis associated gene expressions in liver and brawn fat tissues, as well as leptin resistance evidenced by altered expressions of leptin, leptin receptor (ObR) or appetite associated genes. In SH-SY5Y cells, ASI enhanced leptin signaling transduction. However, in db/db mice, ASI did not change body weight gain and appetite associated genes. But it decreased serum triglyceride and total cholesterol levels as well as liver triglyceride. Meanwhile, it significantly modulated gene expressions of PPAR, PGC1-, UCP2, ACC, SCD1, LPL, AP2, CD36 and SREBP-1c. Collectively, our study suggested that ASI could efficiently improve lipid metabolism in obese mice probably through enhancing leptin sensitivity and modulating thermogenic network.

Astragaloside IV mediated suppression of fibroproliferation may contribute to the anti-fibrotic effect against BLM-induced pulmonary fibrosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Inflammation. 2016 Oct ;39(5):1835-41. PMID: 27525425 Abstract Title:  Inhibitory Effects of Astragaloside IV on Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis in Rats Via Attenuation of Oxidative Stress and Inflammation. Abstract:  In this study, we investigated the effects of astragaloside IV (As-IV) on pulmonary fibrosis and its mechanisms of action. Sprague-Dawley rats were used in a model of pulmonary fibrosis induced by an intratracheal instillation of bleomycin (BLM). Rats were intraperitoneally injected with As-IV (10, 20, 50 mg/kg) daily for 28 days, while the rats in control and BLM groups were injected with a saline solution. The effects of As-IV treatment on pulmonary injury were evaluated with the lung wet/dry weight ratios, cell counts, and histopathologic. Oxidative stress was evaluated by detecting the levelsof malondialdehyde (MDA), superoxide dismutase (SOD), total antioxidant capacity (T-AOC), and reactive oxygen species (ROS) in lung tissue. Inflammation was assessed by measuring the levels of tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-, interleukin (IL)-1, and IL-6 in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF). Theresults indicated that As-IV treatment remarkably ameliorated BLM-induced pulmonary fibrosis and attenuated BLM-induced oxidative stress and inflammation. Our findings indicate that As-IV-mediated suppression of fibroproliferation may contribute to the anti-fibrotic effect against BLM-induced pulmonary fibrosis. Its mechanisms of action are associated with inhibiting oxidative stress and inflammatory response. In summary, our study suggests a therapeutic potential of As-IV in the treatment of pulmonary fibrosis.

Texas City Demands Citizens Pledge Loyalty To A Foreign Country If They Want Hurricane Harvey Relief Money "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Isarel

In a shocking development, a Texas city is demanding that their citizens sign a loyalty pledge to Israel in order to receive Hurricane Harvey relief funds.

Despite obvious Constitutional issues, the city of Dickinson has included, on its list of promises that a citizen must make in order to get funds for relief from the devastating hurricane, that one must certify that they do not boycott Israel and will not begin to boycott Israel during the terms of the agreement.

As The Houston Press noted, The small town of Dickinson is now making national news for what appears, before any context is provided, to be a totally random loyalty pledge to a foreign country that has absolutely nothing to do with Harvey recovery.

The city is apparently attempting to use a state law, signed by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, that prohibits arms of the Texas government from investing in or contracting with any company that boycotts Israel. Contractors are made to sign a similar verification as the one included by the city of Dickinson. The governor even went as far as to claim that boycotting Israel was anti-Texas after he signed the bill into law.

While one can agree or disagree on the merits of the state law in general, it cannot be denied that this law targeted organizations, not citizens seeking aid after their homes and property were destroyed by a hurricane.

The legal trouble, besides requiring citizens of the U.S. to pledge allegiance to a foreign country, doesnt end there. The Texas law specifically states that organizations are held to the pro-Israel standard, but nowhere does it state that individual citizens are. Nevertheless, Dickinson is requiring its citizenry to sign a no-boycott pledge if theyre interested in U.S. government grant money.  In other words, if you dont pledge allegiance to a foreign nation you dont get government aid, wrote Aaron Kesel for Activist Post.

Nanochips And Smart Dust Dangerous New Face Of Human Microchipping Agenda "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Makia Freeman

Nanochips and Smart Dust are the new technological means for the advancement of the human microchipping agenda. Due to their incredibly tiny size, both nanochips and Smart dust have the capacity to infiltrate the human body, become lodged within, and begin to set up a synthetic network on the inside which can be remotely controlled from the outside. Needless to say, this has grave freedom, privacy and health implications, because it means the New World Order would be moving from controlling the outside world (environment/society) to controlling the inside world (your body). This article explores what the advent of nanochips and Smart dust could mean for you.

Different Forms of Control

Humanitys history is filled with examples of societies where the people were sharply divided into 2 categories: rulers and slaves. In the distant past, the slaves have usually been kept in place because the rulers had access to and control over the resources, such as money, food, water, weapons or other necessities of life (control of the environment).

In our more recent history, control was implemented not only by monopolizing resources but also via propaganda (control of the mind). This has manifested itself in many ways, e.g. the caste system in India (you must remain in your position on the hierarchical ladder for life), the royal bloodlines in Rome, the Middle East and Europe (who claimed an inherent and divine right to rule), the centralization of power in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia during the 1930s (where a single autocrat or a small committee decided the fate of millions), and finally in the West (especially in the US) with the advent of specialized PR and mind co...

Astragaloside IV alleviates E. coli-caused peritonitis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2016 Oct ;39:377-382. Epub 2016 Aug 17. PMID: 27543854 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV alleviates E. coli-caused peritonitis via upregulation of neutrophil influx to the site of infection. Abstract:  Astragaloside IV (AS-IV), an active saponin purified from Astragali Radix, has been identified with broad biological and pharmacological activities. In the present study, we continue to explore the potential effect of AS-IV on antibacterial response using an acute E. coli peritoneal infection model. Our findings implied that administration of AS-IV decreases mortality in mice challenged by lethal E. coli infection. The protection of AS-IV was related to promotion of neutrophil extravasation into the peritoneum and bacterial clearance. Toll-like receptor (TLR) activation in neutrophils has been reported to reduce CXCR2 expression and subsequent neutrophil migration. Our data indicated that AS-IV prevented the reduction of CXCR2 expression and neutrophil migration induced by LPS, the activator for TLR4. Moreover, we found that AS-IV blocks LPS-induced suppression of CXCR2 on neutrophils by inhibiting the expression of G protein-coupled receptor kinase-2 (GRK2), an agonist that regulates desensitization and internalization of chemokine receptors. Taken together, these data propose that AS-IV, through modulating GRK2-CXCR2 signal in neutrophils, offers an essential efficacy on host antibacterial immunity.

Astragaloside IV has a therapeutic effect on inflammation promoted by high-mobility group box 1 protein. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharm Biol. 2016 Dec ;54(12):3217-3225. Epub 2016 Aug 26. PMID: 27564970 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV attenuates inflammatory reaction via activating immune function of regulatory T-cells inhibited by HMGB1 in mice. Abstract:  CONTEXT: High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) protein is a highly abundant protein that can promote the pathogenesis of inflammatory. Some experiments have demonstrated a vital role for HMGB1 to modulate the immune function of regulatory T-cells (Tregs). Astragaloside IV (AST IV), an extract from Astragalus membranaceus Moench (Leguminosae), has been shown to exert potent cardioprotective and anti-inflammatory effects. It is still unclear whether AST IV has a latent effect on the proinflammatory ability of HMGB1 with subsequent activation of Tregs in vivo.OBJECTIVE: This research explores the antagonism of different doses of AST IV on the immunologic function of Tregs mediated by HMGB1.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Mouse models (BALB/c) were constructed by which normal saline or AST IV was administered i.p. at 2, 4 and 6 days after the administration i.p. of 20g recombinate HMGB1. Spleen was used to procure Treg and CD4(+)CD25(-) T-cells which were co-cultured with Treg. Cell phenotypes of Tregs(Foxp3) were examined, and the cytokine levels in supernatants and the proliferation of T-cells were assayed. Gene expression was measured by RT-PCR.RESULTS: (1) The expression levels of Foxp3 in Treg on post-stimulus days (PSD) 1-7 were significantly decreased in the HMGB1 group in comparison to those in the control group mice (p

Half-Earth Day to be celebrated next week "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

This Monday, October 23, marks the first-ever Half-Earth Day. The E.O. Wilson Biodiversity Foundation and National Geographic timed the event to occur exactly half a year after Earth Day (April 22). But Half-Earth Day also gets its name from the biodiversity conservation initiative spearheaded by renowned biologist and conservationist Edward O. Wilson, discussed in his 2016 book, Half-Earth: Our Planets Fight for Life. Wilsons idea, which he says is backed up by research, is that we can protect 85 percent of Earths biodiversity by conserving half of the worlds land and seas. The Half-Earth approach is not only science-based, but it will also expand fundamental science into new directions, Wilson, who is a research professor emeritus at Harvard, said in a statement. The goal of discovering and mapping all biodiversity, and especially at the level of species, will lead to immense new knowledge in basic and applied biology. Half-Earth Day will feature a full day of programming designed to bring leading conservationists, scientists, and the public together at National Geographics Washington, D.C. headquarters to share ideas and inspiration for achieving the goals of the Half-Earth Project. Our planet is at a crossroads, and there is both an opportunity and a critical need to act now, and to do so boldly, Gary E. Knell, president and CEO of the National Geographic Society, said in a statement. National Geographic is proud to convene the first-ever Half-Earth Day to inspire people everywhere to understand and care for our world, furthering our progress toward

MPCA Wild Rice Sulfate Standard Public Meetings "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The Wild Rice Sulfate Standard was adopted in Minnesota rules in 1973 to protect our water and our cultural resources. Manoomin no longer grows in many waters, as a result of sulfate pollution and other development. The Standard has not been enforced, and making it more complicated now will have a detrimental impact.

The MPCA is proposing to eliminate and replace the Wild Rice Sulfate Standard. Up until now, the standard has maintained that sulfate should not enter wild rice waters in higher quantities than 10 parts per million. The new proposed rule would make a different standard for every lake and wetland with wild rice an unbelievably complicated and costly rule to implement.

PMID:  Fundam Clin Pharmacol. 2017 Feb ;31(1):17-36. Epub 2016 Sep 23. PMID: 27567103 Abstract Title:  Research review on the pharmacological effects of astragaloside IV. Abstract:  Astragalus membranaceus Bunge has been used to treat numerous diseases for thousands of years. As the main active substance of Astragalus membranaceus Bunge, astragaloside IV (AS-IV) also demonstrates the potent protective effect on focal cerebral ischemia/reperfusion, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, liver fibrosis, and diabetic nephropathy. Based on studies published during the past several decades, the current state of AS-IV research and the pharmacological effects are detailed, elucidated, and summarized. This review systematically summarizes the pharmacological effects, metabolism mechanism, and the toxicity of AS-IV. AS-IV has multiple pharmacologic effects, including anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic, antioxidative stress, anti-asthma, antidiabetes, immunoregulation, and cardioprotective effect via numerous signaling pathways. According to the existing studies and clinical practices, AS-IV possesses potential for broad application in many diseases.

Ancient Mediterranean Oil Lamps Capture the Pop Culture of Their Time "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Terracotta lamp from Anatolia with curled-up sleeping dog in high-relief (1st-4th c. CE) (all images courtesy of the J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles and all featured in Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum by Jean Bussire and Birgitta Lindros Wohl)

The oil lamp, at its core, is quite a modest object. Roughly the size of your hand and made of clay or metal, it really needs to hold only fuel and a wick to fulfill its duty. But while the basic engineering of oil lamps remained the same for thousands of years, the forms of their vessels were ripe for artistic experimentation. Oil lamps became highly decorated wares, featuring designs that play with the shapes of their handles, nozzles, and bowls.

Terracotta lamp from North Africa with dromedary with saddlebag walking to right, toward handle (1st-4th c. CE)

The evolution of the oil lamp from crude container to sculptural masterwork is captured in the collections of the J. Paul Getty Museum, which owns one of the richest troves of lamps from the ancient Mediterranean world, all produced between 800 BCE and 800 CE. Unfortunately, the vast majority of these 630 or so lamps are typically not on view. To make these stunning objects more accessible, the museum recently published a free, digital catalogue by lychnologists lamp scholars Birgitta Lindros Wohl and the late Jean Bussire, which provides a technical study of every single lamp.

Although geared more towards academics, Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum is also fascinating for general perusal. The imagery carved onto lamps is incredibly varied, from motifs to depictions of daily life and mythology; there are reliefs of landscapes, people at work, sporting events, and even explicit scenes of fornicating couples carved into these small vessels.

Woman Spends 6 Months Planning A Surprise Birthday Party For Her Dog "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

For Ana Santos, a college student from California, simply having her beloved dog Bella in her life has been the greatest gift of all. So, long before the pup's first birthday even rolled around, Ana knew she wanted to make it as big a deal for Bella as Bella is to her.

"Six months before her first birthday, I knew I had to do something special," Ana told The Dodo. That's when she started planning.

Credit: Ana Santos

Ensuring Bella's surprise birthday party would be as epic as possible took lots of consideration on Ana's part. She started by making a list of everything that a proper pup party should have and then went above and beyond that.

"I got Bella's favorite treats, colorful birthday hats, balloons shaped like paws, treat bags for all of Bella's doggy friends, a unicorn piata, doggie cookies and fabulous cake specially made for dogs to eat," Ana said.

No party would be complete without Bella's pup pals.

"I invited all of her friends," Ana said, including two for whom it would be their first visit to her house: "The mini schnauzer who always plays with her and scrambles to the window to see her each time we go on a walk, and the inquisitive schnauzer who's her best friend and plays with her at the park."

It took a lot of time and energy to get everything this perfect but it all paid off. Bella had no idea what awaited her.

These findings showed astragaloside IV to be beneficial to type 2 diabetic nephropathy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2016 Sep 2 ;6:32545. Epub 2016 Sep 2. PMID: 27585918 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV ameliorates renal injury in db/db mice. Abstract:  Diabetic nephropathy is a lethal complication of diabetes mellitus and a major type of chronic kidney disease. Dysregulation of the Akt pathway and its downstream cascades, including mTOR, NFB, and Erk1/2, play a critical role in the development of diabetic nephropathy. Astragaloside IV is a major component of Huangqi and exerts renal protection in a mouse model of type 1 diabetes. The current study was undertaken to investigate the protective effects of diet supplementation of AS-IVon renal injury in db/db mice, a type 2 diabetic mouse model. Results showed that administration of AS-IV reduced albuminuria, ameliorated changes in the glomerular and tubular pathology, and decreased urinary NAG, NGAL, and TGF-1 in db/db mice. AS-IV also attenuated the diabetes-related activation of Akt/mTOR, NFB, and Erk1/2 signaling pathways without causing any detectable hepatotoxicity. Collectively, these findings showed AS-IV to be beneficial to type 2 diabetic nephropathy, which might be associated with the inhibition of Akt/mTOR, NFB and Erk1/2 signaling pathways.

Report: President Trump looking To RELEASE The CIA JFK Assassination Files Despite Intelligence Community Fears "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

JFK Checks Out an M15

Despite reported pleas from the intelligence community to delay their release, President Trump is set to declassify the tens of thousands of remaining CIA documents relating to the JFK assassination, according to a report by longtime Trump friend and adviser Roger Stone.

Stone, who is also an Infowars correspondent, spoke to the president Thursday about the issue as well as the fears of some within the CIA over the files pending release.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to make the case directly to the President of the United States, by phone, as to why I believe it is essential that he release the balance of the current redacted and classifeid JFK assassination documents, Stone detailed in an appearance on the Alex Jones Show.

He was all ears, Stone continued. The president believes in transparency, he believes in the publics right to know.

Stone stressed that Trump didnt specifically tell him that he had planned to release the files, but the way he took the information in and his past beliefs on the subject made it seem highly likely that he was leaning towards their release.

During the interview Stone also detailed the fact that the CIA doesnt want the files released and why this may be the case.

A very good White House source, not the president, told me that the Central Intelligence Agency, specifically the CIA director, have been lobbying the president furiously to not release these documents, he noted.

Why? I believe they show that Oswald was trained, nurtured, and put in place by the CIA, it sheds very bad light on the deep state the same characters trying to take down our president right now.

As it has gotten closer to their possible release, there havent just been ramblings in the intelligence community as mainstream authors of books that point to Oswald as the lone gunman have also publicly wrote about their worry that experts would not be able to dissect the documents before the public are able to read them.

Couple Stops At Gas Station On Road Trip And Ends Up Leaving With A Puppy "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Emily Trost and her boyfriend were driving across the country on a 10-week road trip when they stopped at a gas station in Montana. They went inside to shop for a bit, and when they came out, they found a tiny puppy sitting next to their car, as if shed been waiting for them. 

Credit: Emily Trost

Our initial thought was that she was the pet of someone else using the gas station, Trost told The Dodo. My boyfriend and I went around to others at the gas station asking if she was theirs.  We also waited with her to see if somebody came out of the gas station store to claim her.  Nobody did, and as we were waiting, we realized how dirty she was with thorns, twigs and pricklies all caught in her long hair and our hearts broke for her.

Credit: Emily Trost

After a while, a woman driving by pulled over and told the couple that she feeds stray dogs in the area, and begged them to take the little puppy with them. She said the puppy was a wonderful dog and deserved a good home, so the couple decided they would at least take her with them and maybe try to find a rescue to take her in but after petting the puppy and looking at her sweet, hopeful face, they both secretly knew that wasnt going to happen. 

Within minutes of driving away with her in the car, we knew she was coming home with us, Trost said.

They decided to name the puppy Montana after the state they had found her in. When Montana sat down next to the couples car that day, she was probably hopeful that the owners of the car would love and feed her for a little bit but she had no idea just how lucky she was going to get.

200,000+ Historic Recordings to Be Digitized by Boston Public Library and Released Online "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

digitizing sound recordings

While the digital age is rapidly changing the way we consume information, it's also creating an outlet to preserve precious data that would otherwise be lost. Particularly for music, where evolving technology continually transforms the way we listen to sounds, digitization projects are vital to conserving important recordings. To this end, the Boston Public Library is pairing with the Internet Archive in a massive effort to digitize their sound collection, giving the public access to a wide range of historic recordings.

This exciting development means that many previously unheard recordings will be available for casual listeners and researchers for the first time. Over 200,000 audio pieces on 78s, LP's, and Thomas Edison's first recording medium, the wax cylinder, will be part of the project. This includes American popular music of many genresclassical, pop, rock, jazz, and opera from the early 1900s through the 1980s.

For decades the collection has remained in its current statein storage, uncataloged, and inaccessible to the public. The Boston Public Library, which has collaborated with the Internet Archive since 2007, will produce a number of versions from remastered until raw. The library's decision to digitize its sound library fits perfectly into The Great 78 Project, the Internet Archive's initiative to digitize all 3 million minted sidesrecordings of about 3 minutesfrom 78 rpm discs from about 1898 to the 1950s.

The simple fact of the matter is most audiovisual recordings will be lost, says George Blood, an internationally renowned expert on audio preservation. These 78s are disappearing right and left. It is important that we do a good job preserving what we can get to, because there won't be a second chance.

It will take several years to get the full collection online, but for now, two recordings are already availablePlease Pass the Biscuits, Pappy (I Like Mountain Music)...

AS IV is able to protect developing brain from anesthesia-induced neuroapoptosis "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Ther Med. 2016 Sep ;12(3):1829-1835. Epub 2016 Jul 13. PMID: 27588101 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV protects new born rats from anesthesia-induced apoptosis in the developing brain. Abstract:  Exposure to general anesthesia may cause severe neurotoxicity in developing brain due to neuronal apoptosis. Astragaloside IV (AS IV) has antioxidant and antiapoptosis properties; however, its effects on anesthesia-induced neuroapoptosis have not been studied. In the present study, we determined whether AS IV pre-treatment is able to reduce isoflurane exposure-induced neuroapoptosis in rats. New born rats were pre-treated with AS IV or solvent by oral gavage for three days, then exposed to isoflurane. The results showed that pre-treatment of AS IV significantly inhibited isoflurane-induced neural apoptosis in the hippocampus of new born rats, and such protection was accompanied by reduced levels of caspase-3, nuclear factor-B activation and phosphorylated c-Jun N-terminal kinase, extracellular signal-regulated kinase and increased levels of B-cell lymphoma-2, glycogen synthase kinase-3, Klotho and phosphorylated protein kinase B. Furthermore, AS IV pre-treatment significantly alleviated isoflurane-induced oxidativestress and proinflammatory cytokine release in the rat hippocampus and serum. In summery, the results of the study demonstrated that AS IV is able to protect developing brain from anesthesia-induced neuroapoptosis via anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory activities.

Astragaloside IV ameliorates necrotizing enterocolitis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Ther Med. 2016 Oct ;12(4):2702-2708. Epub 2016 Aug 30. PMID: 27698775 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV ameliorates necrotizing enterocolitis by attenuating oxidative stress and suppressing inflammation via the vitamin D3-upregulated protein 1/NF-B signaling pathway. Abstract:  Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) is a flavonoid from the plant Astragalus membranaceus (Fisch) Bge that has a wide range of therapeutic effects. The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of AS-IV on rats with necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) under oxidative stress and inflammation. Newborn Sprague-Dawley rats were induced with NEC by asphyxia and hypothermia applied on 3 consecutive days. The rats were orally administered AS-IV at 25, 50 and 75 mg/kg for 4 days. The results revealed that AS-IV administration prevented NEC-induced decrease in the concentration of malondialdehyde and myeloperoxidase, and increase in the activity of glutathione (GSH) and superoxide dismutase in murine models. AS-IV also inhibited NEC-induced elevation in the levels of interleukin (IL)-6, IL-1, tumor necrosis factor- and nuclear factor (NF)-B. The effects of AS-IV were achieved under inflammation and oxidative stress. Western blotting demonstrated that AS-IV substantially inhibited the phosphorylated (p)-IB, NF-Bp65, p-NF-Bp65 protein levels and increased vitamin D3 upregulated protein 1 (VDUP1) and IB protein levels. These data indicate that AS-IV may be effective in the protection of NEC-induced ileum degeneration by inhibiting the levels of inflammatory markers and oxidative stress via the regulation of the VDUP1/NF-B signaling pathway.

The University of Washington launched the online game Foldit in 2008, and since then it has successfully engaged the public in solving puzzles for science. The crowdsourcing initiative asks users to fold proteins into new and optimal three-dimensional configurations. This April, a New York Times article reported that its involved nearly a million players over its lifetime, including on puzzles about Ebola binding protein and the Marburg virus. In 2011, they helped decipher in a matter of weeks the structure of a protein-sniping enzyme that is critical in how the AIDS virus reproduces, and in 2012, it was reported that the players were the first to crowdsource a redesigned protein.

Astragaloside IV protects rat gastric mucosa against aspirin-induced damage. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2016 Dec ;41:47-55. Epub 2016 Nov 2. PMID: 27816726 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV protects rat gastric mucosa against aspirin-induced damage. Abstract:  Aspirin (Asp) is commonly used as an anti-inflammatory drug, but the long-term usage of Asp can lead to severe gastrointestinal damage. Thus the co-administering of Asp with another drug that can suppress its side effect while having no impact on its anti-inflammatory activity would be ideal. Astragaloside IV (AST-IV) is a natural anti-inflammatory compound that has been shown to protect rat gastric mucosa from anhydrous ethanol-inflicted damage. In this study, we investigated whether AST-IV could protect rat gastric mucosa against Asp-induced gastric mucosal damage. Wistar rats administered 150mg/kg Asp showed significant damage to the gastric mucosa, as revealed by gastric damage score and histological evaluation. However, this was largely abolished by co-administering Asp and 25mg/kg or 50mg/kg AST-IV. The protective mechanism of AST-IV involved the suppression of Asp-induced inhibition of cycloxygenase-1 (COX-1) expression, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) production, superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity and nitric oxide (NO) production. AST-IV blocked Asp-induced inhibition of SOD activity through preventing Asp from inhibiting the expression of SOD-1, both at the mRNA and protein levels. AST-IV did not appear to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of Asp since COX-2 level in model gastritis rats treated with Asp plus AST-IV was equally suppressed as in model gastritis rats treated with Asp alone. The results clearly showed that AST-IV could neutralize the toxicity of Asp while having no impact on its anti-inflammatory activity. AST-IV could therefore be considered as a potential drug for relieving the side effect associated with the long-term usage of Asp.

People Are Furious This Controversial Animal Show Is Returning To Vegas "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

On a blue-lit stage, a man in a red coat ripped the drape off of a glass cage, revealing a large, white tiger inside.

This is Frosty, ladies and gentleman, said the man, as he opened the cage to pet the tiger, who was wearing a metal chain around her neck. Frosty is a 1-year-old snow tiger. Isnt she beautiful?

The tiger swayed back and forth in the cage, looking confused. But the audience didnt seem to notice they cheered and clapped as dance music blared.

Credit: ADI

This scene was included in a video released in 2015 by Animal Defenders International (ADI). The man in the red coat was Dirk Arthur, and the clip was taken during a performance of one of his controversial exotic animal shows at Harrahs Casino in Reno, Nevada.

Frostys debut isnt the only upsetting scene in the video. In another clip, a different tiger paces back and forth in a small, fenced-in cage at the holding facility where Arthur keeps his animals during the large stretches of time when theyre not performing. Besides Frosty, Arthur is said to own 13 other animals, including Bengal tigers, ligers (hybrids between a male lion and female tiger), snow leopards, panthers and bobcats.

Credit: ADI

In another part of the video, a caged tiger roars in fright as a flash of theatrical fire erupts beside him.

Arthur, who has been performing in the Las Vegas area since the late 90s, is often touted as an animal welfare advocate who promotes the humane and proper care of his animals. Yet Christina Scaringe, general counsel for ADI, believes that Arthurs treatment of animals is anything but humane.

The First Animation Is Film Festival Showcases the Best of Todays Animation "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Virus Tropical (Animation Is Film Festival)

Over the course of the nearly ten years since its founding, indie film company GKIDS has carved out an increasingly strong niche for itself as a distributor of foreign animated films. While animating tools are more accessible than ever, driving a blossoming movement of independent cartoonists, feature animation in the United States remains constrained by studio concerns about marketability, corporate synergy, and safe storytelling. In this environment, GKIDS provides a welcome showcase for the artistic possibilities filmmakers in other countries are exploring.

Now, the distributor has teamed with the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, ASIFA Hollywood, and Variety to present the first Animation is Film Festival in Los Angeles. Over the course of one weekend, the festival will showcase a mlange of animated work: features and shorts, classic and contemporary, foreign and domestic. While nearly all the films in the program are intriguing, here are some of the highlights.

Masaaki Yuasa Features

In terms of craft, Japanese animation has traditionally been separated from Western animation by its favoring of detail over movement. Western cartoons are associated with lots of action and simpler artwork and design, while anime is associated with more subdued movement and complex drawing. Masaaki Yuasa embraces both. His work is distinctive for its intricate motion, often featuring characters running at hyper-fast speeds and with surrealistic exaggeration. Hes also willing to experiment with shifting drawing styles within one work, a sensibility reflected in his anarchic, anything-goes approach to storytelling.

Yuasa has three films playing the festival, each of which displays a radically different vision. His two new features are a romantic comedy, Night is Short, Walk on Girl, and a childrens fantasy adventure, Lu Over the Wall. And then theres 2004s Mind Game, a sense-bending odyssey which switches genre every...

These results demonstrate that Astragaloside IV protects against the progression of renal fibrosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2017 Jan ;42:18-24. Epub 2016 Nov 14. PMID: 27855303 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV from Astragalus membranaceus ameliorates renal interstitial fibrosis by inhibiting inflammation via TLR4/NF-B in vivo and in vitro. Abstract:  Renal fibrosis is characterized by infiltration of inflammatory cells, activation and proliferation of fibroblasts, and accumulation of extracellular matrix (ECM). Astragalus membranaceus (AM) is traditional Chinese medicine and has a range of pharmacological effects. Astragaloside IV (As IV) is the main compound of AM and has anti-inflammation activities. Whether As IV ameliorates renal interstitial fibrosis by inhibiting inflammation remains unknown. Accordingly, this study investigated the ameliorating effect of As IV on renal fibrosis. Renal fibrosis was induced in vivo using the unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) model. UUO mice were administered intragastrically with As IV (20 and 40mg/kg/day). After a week, ECM including fibronectin and collagen I was examined by Immunohistochemistry and Western blot, inflammatory cells (CD68 and CD3) were detected by Immunohistochemistry, the release of inflammatory cytokines (tumor necrosis factor- and interleukin-1) was inspected by polymerase chain reaction, and signaling pathway was determined by Western blot. In vitro, 100ng/ml lipopolysaccharide (LPS) stimulated epithelial cells to construct the inflammatory model; these cells were treated by As IV (10 and 20M) with or without TAK-242 (1M) for 48h. The released inflammatory cytokines were assayed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and signaling pathway was evaluated by Western blot. As IV decreased accumulation of ECM and infiltration of inflammatory cells in UUO-induced renal fibrosis. Furthermore, As IV markedly attenuated pro-inflammatory cytokines in UUO mouse and LPS-induced epithelial cells. As IV also inhibited the TLR4 and nuclear factor (NF)-B signaling pathway in vivo and vitro. These results demonstrate that As IV protects against the progression of renal fibrosis by inhibiting inflammation via the TLR4/NF-B signaling pathway.

A second shooter fires from an elevated position, presumably the billboard located outside Mr. Deli, at 10:04 p.m., before Paddock fires his first fully-automatic volley, video appears to show.

The purpose of this article is to open a real-time discussion and investigation into the possibility that a second shooter may have been firing from an elevated position across the strip and to the west of the Mandalay Bay Hotel.

At 3:08 into the video you can see what appears to be a single flash coming from the billboard behind the left Farris wheel post, by 3:12 the shot can be heard.

After doing an extensive analysis on the matter, I have determined that the shot likely came from the billboard located by Mr. Deli on Las Vegas Blvd. The signage overlooks the venue and is higher up than the roof of the Motel 8.

Astragaloside IV enhances cardioprotection of remote ischemic conditioning after acute myocardial infarction. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Am J Transl Res. 2016 ;8(11):4657-4669. Epub 2016 Nov 15. PMID: 27904669 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV enhances cardioprotection of remote ischemic conditioning after acute myocardial infarction in rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Remote ischemic conditioning (RIC) has been shown to be a practical method for protecting the heart from ischemic/reperfusion (I/R) injury. In the present study, we investigated whether or not the combination of RIC and Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) could improve cardioprotection against acute myocardial infarction (AMI)-induced heart failure (HF) when compared with individual treatments.MATERIAL AND METHODS: A rat model of AMI was established via permanent ligation of the left anterior descending coronary artery (LAD). Postoperatively, the rats were randomly grouped into a sham group (n=10), a model group (n=15), an AS-IV alone group (n=15), an RIC alone group (n=15) and a combined treatment group (AS-IV+RIC; n=15). All treatments were administered for 2 weeks.RESULTS: After treatment for 2 weeks, the survival rate was improved, the cardiac function was preserved and the infarcted size was limited in AS-IV alone and RIC alone treatment groups compared to the model group, whereas the combined treatment yielded the most optimal protective effects. Additional studies suggested that AS-IV enhanced the cardioprotective effects of RIC by alleviating myocardial fibrosis, suppressing inflammation, attenuating apoptosis and ameliorating impairment of the myocardial ultrastructural.CONCLUSION: AS-IV enhances the cardioprotective effects of RIC against AMI-induced HF and ventricular remodeling, which represents a potential therapeutic approach for preserving cardiac function and improving the prognosis of AMI.

Astragaloside IV ameliorates allergic inflammation by inhibiting key initiating factors in the initial stage of sensitization. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2016 Dec 5 ;6:38241. Epub 2016 Dec 5. PMID: 27917896 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV ameliorates allergic inflammation by inhibiting key initiating factors in the initial stage of sensitization. Abstract:  To illuminate the anti-allergy mechanism of astragaloside IV (AS-IV), we assessed its effects in a murine model of allergic contact dermatitis (ACD). AS-IV administered in the sensitization phase, rather than in the elicitation phase, dramatically alleviated the symptoms of allergic inflammation. We hypothesized that AS-IV exerts its anti-allergy effects by regulating the production of key pro-allergic cytokines based on the fact that interleukin (IL)-33 and thymic stromal lymphopoietin (TSLP) levels increase significantly in the initial stage of the sensitization phase. AS-IV administered in the initial stage of ACD inhibited TSLP and IL-33 expression and reduced the proportion of type-2 innate lymphoid cells (ILC2s). An in vitro study showed that the production of pro-allergic cytokines was significantly inhibited in AS-IV presenting HaCaT cells. We also verified that AS-IV administered only in the initial stage markedly alleviated inflammation, including ear swelling, Th2 cytokine expression, and histological changes. Taken together, these results suggest that AS-IV effectively ameliorates the progression of allergic inflammation by inhibiting key initiating factors, including TSLP and IL-33, and can be used to prevent and/or treat patients with ACD. Our data also suggest that these key pro-allergic cytokines are potential therapeutic targets for allergic diseases.

A young bull never would have had a name if he hadn't broken free from a slaughterhouse and sprinted through the streets of Brooklyn, New York, this week but now he's called Shankar, which means "one who brings happiness or prosperity" in Hindi.

Mike Stura, who runs Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in New Jersey, rushed to Brooklyn on Tuesday when he heard the young bull was on the loose.  

"I am, for whatever reason, the go-to guy when it comes to bulls and cows around here," Stura told The Dodo. "Ive rescued several of them from things like this. When this kind of thing happens I get a million phone calls."

Sometimes the stories don't end so happily earlier this year, a bull who escaped in Queens, New York, ended up dying during the chase. But this time was different, to the relief of so many spectators who were rooting for the independently minded animal.

Stura managed to convince the authorities to release the determined guy into his care. And now he's finally arrived at the sanctuary, where he'll be able to live his whole life happily in open fields with dozens of other rescued bovines like him....

On the grounds of Segeraan award-winning, 50,000 acre wildlife eco-safari retreat in Kenya, East Africasits the NAY PALAD Bird Nest Villa. Made in collaboration with NAY PALAD and architect Daniel Pouzet, this exclusive destination offers a unique place to stay in the heart of the African bush. Crowned by branches and resembling a gigantic bird nest, the villa offers a 360-degree bird's-eye view of the surrounding African wildernessabove the treetops, the nearby river, and the wildlife below.

Following an adventurous approach by foot or by car, guests can come upon the two-floor structure towering up, out of the plains. Under the setting sun, scattered lantern-light welcomes them up into the retreat to discover an assortment of goodies, including champagne to toast the night ahead.

While its designed for two, the nest can sleep more. Theres a cozy first-floor bedroom, supplied with crisp, luxury linens and toasty hot water bottles; however, theres always the option of a night beneath the stars on the open-air top deck. Despite its remote location, the villa offers full luxury service, and is also equipped with solar-heated running water in the bathroom.

As a new day dawns, guests awaken to the sounds of the savanna and are able to enjoy a picnic breakfast as elephants and giraffes gather on the neighboring riverbanks.

Washington will have to put up with Pyongyangs nuclear status, a top official from North Koreas Foreign Ministry has said, ruling out talks on the matter with the US.
The Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea [DPRK] is not planning to hold talks on nuclear weapons and the US has to get along with the DPRKs nuclear status, Choe Son-hui, director-general of the North American Department of North Koreas Foreign Ministry said, speaking at the 2017 Non-proliferation Conference in Moscow.

According to Choe, North Koreas nuclear status is essential for securing stability and safety on the Korean peninsula and in north-eastern Asia by extension.

Pyongyang is ready to pacify the Americans and will fight fire with fire if necessary, the official continued.

CDC Disappears Page Linking Polio Vaccines To Cancer-Causing Viruses "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Vaccine

Some of the details of the disappeared page read as follows:

Cancer, Simian Virus 40 (SV40), and Polio Vaccine Fact Sheet
SV40 is a virus found in some species of monkey.
SV40 was discovered in 1960. Soon afterward, the virus was found in polio vaccine.
More than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine from 1955 to 1963 when a proportion of vaccine was contaminated with SV40; it has been estimated that 1030 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of vaccine.
SV40 virus has been found in certain types of cancer in humans, but it has not been determined that SV40 causes these cancers.
The majority of scientific evidence suggests that SV40-contaminated vaccine did not cause cancer; however, some research results are conflicting and more studies are needed.
Polio vaccines being used today do not contain SV40. All of the current evidence indicates that polio vaccines have been free of SV40 since 1963.

Astragaloside IV inhibits breast cancer cell invasion. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2017 Jan ;42:195-202. Epub 2016 Dec 5. PMID: 27930970 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV inhibits breast cancer cell invasion by suppressing Vav3 mediated Rac1/MAPK signaling. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Astragaloside IV (AS-IV), the major active triterpenoid in Radix Astragali, has shown anti-tumorigenic properties in certain cancers; however, its role in breast cancer remains unclear. The present study investigated the effects of AS-IV on breast cancer in vitro and in vivo and examined the underlying mechanisms.METHODS: The effects of AS-IV on MDA-MB-231 cell proliferation, migration, invasion and metastasis were investigated by MTT and Transwell assays, and western blotting. In addition, an orthotopic mouse tumor model was established for in vivo experiments.RESULTS: AS-IV inhibited the viability and invasive potential of MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells, suppressed the activation of the mitogen activated protein kinase (MAPK) family members ERK1/2 and JNK, and downregulated matrix metalloproteases (MMP)-2 and -9. The effects of AS-IV were mediated by the downregulation of Vav3, a guanine nucleotide exchange factor, leading to decreased levels of activated Rac1, a Rho family GTPase. Vav3 overexpression promoted cell proliferation and invasion in vitro, whereas Vav3 silencing had the opposite effects. AS-IV suppressed orthotopic breast tumor growth and metastasis to the lungs, whereas ectopic expression of Vav3 reversed the inhibitory effect of AS-IV on cell viability, invasiveness, MAPK signaling and MMP expression.CONCLUSION: The present results provide a mechanistic explanation for the antitumor effects of AS-IV and suggest its potential in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.

Yes, British F-35 engines must be sent to Turkey for overhaul Also, the US negotiates fighter jet purchase contracts on our behalf "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

RAF F-35B ZM137, visiting the UK in 2016. Crown copyright
ZM137, one of the UK's 14 F-35s (at the time of writing)

Britains F-35B fighter jets currently cost around $123m each and British officials are quite content that the only engine overhaul facility for the stealth aircrafts engines is located in Turkey.

The House of Commons Defence Committee questioned British ministers, civil servants and senior officers on the F-35 purchase programme, revealing that Britain is still publicly committed to buying 138 F-35Bs.

Speculation had mounted that Britain may not buy its full complement of the aircraft thanks to well-publicised holes in the defence budget, which in a break with tradition caused Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon to publicly call for a bigger defence budget.

The committee, consisting of mostly Conservative MPs along with a smattering of Labour MPs and sole representatives from each of Scotlands SNP and Northern Irelands DUP, initially questioned executives from Lockheed Martin about the F-35. This, rather predictably, resulted in the execs insisting everything was fine with the F-35 including questions over the aircrafts handling in the transonic region, where it goes from sub-sonic flight to supersonic flight.

All F-35 variants display objectionable or unacceptable flying qualities at transonic speeds, where aerodynamic forces on the aircraft are rapidly changing, we reported the Straus Military Reform Project as saying in a report earlier this year.

The US-Israel Special Relationship Timeline That AIPAC Doesnt Want You To See

https://alethonews.wordpress.com/2014/11/02/the-us-israel-special-relationship-timeline-that-aipac-doesnt-want-you-to-see/

May 14, 1948 Official Recognition- The United States of America becomes the first country to officially recognize Israel as an independent nation.

1949-1973- US-Israel Aid Commences The United States gives Israel an average of $122 million per year in foreign aid payments.

Summer 1954 Lavon Affair Israel recruits Egyptian Jews to blow up American and British targets in Egypt. Israel planned on blaming the murderous false-flag attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood in an effort to garner support from the US and Britain. After officially denying any involvement, the Israeli government finally admitted their role in the incident in 2005 by honoring the surviving agents with a certificate of appreciation.

1955-1970- Israel Steals American Uranium to Build Its First Nuclear Weapons In 2011, the Institute for Research on Middle Eastern Policy examined hundreds of newly de-classified documents from the FBI and CIA and discovered that Israeli spies in collaboration with American Jews stole hundreds of kilograms of weapons grade uranium from US stockpiles and shipped it to Israel. Although Israel does not officially acknowledge the possession of nuclear weapons, their nuclear arsenal is estimated at between 200-300 nuclear weapons. (Source)

Abstract:  Objective: To investigate the clinical effect of astragaloside IV in the early treatment of mice with acute liver failure and possible mechanisms. Methods: A mouse model of acute liver failure induced by D-galactosamine/lipopolysaccharide (D-GalN/LPS) was established, and the mice were given astragaloside IV at different doses. The survival rate of mice, alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and aspartate aminotransferase (AST) levels, liver histopathological changes, apoptosis of hepatocytes, and the expression of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and malondialdehyde (MDA) were measured in each group. The least significant difference test was used for data with homogeneity of variances, the Dunnett's T3 test was used for data with heterogeneity of variance, and the Kaplan-Meier method was used for survival analysis. Results: Compared with the model group, the high-dose astragaloside IV group had a significant increase in the 48-hour survival rate [60% (9/15) vs 13.3% (2/15), P

Shelter Dog Is Happiest When She's Snuggled Up In Jammies "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Some dogs dont mind being dressed up in clothes; others seem to hate it. Chunk, a 3-year-old pit bull mix, is definitely the first kind of dog.

When staff members at DeKalb County Animal Services in Georgia dressed Chunk up in a pair of pajamas, Chunk wriggled with excitement.

Chunk is one of those dogs who loves any kind of attention, Karen Hirsch, public relations director for LifeLine Animal Project, a program run by DeKalb County Animal Services, told The Dodo. And when she has pajamas on, she gets lots of adoration from the staff, so she enjoys being dressed up.

Not all other dogs are as chilled out in pajamas like Chunk, she added. She is definitely one of the more relaxed dogs.

Earlier this month, Chunk arrived at the shelter after being picked up as a stray. While no one knows how long Chunk lived on the streets, she definitely wasnt in great shape she was covered in fleas and had dermatitis on her skin.

The vet team immediately started treating Chunk with medication and a healthy diet. And it didnt take long for the staff to fall in love with Chunk, who was named for her short, chunky body.

Its tradition for the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery to commission likenesses of the president and first lady after theyve left office. The Obamas now have their turn to sit for this special painting, and the institution recently announced the two artists who will be completing this high artistic honor. They are Kehinde Wiley, who will paint Barack Obama, and Amy Sherald, who will depict Michelle Obama. Handpicked by the former first couple, the selection of these artists break boundaries; they represent the first black artists to paint a president and a first lady.

The portraits will be revealed in early 2018, and were eager to see what these artists will create. In the meantime, lets learn more about them and look at some of their past work.

Meet the artist painting the Barack Obama presidential portrait.

Kehinde Wiley

Based in Brooklyn, Wileys stunning portraits feature lush, colorful scenes of everyday men and women of color. The realistic handling of the subjects recall European paintings made during the Renaissance, such as those by the artist Michelangelo. Wiley puts his own twist on the classic style, however, by replacing white aristocracy with black people. In speaking about his work, he explained to Huffington Post, Really, its an investigation of how we see those people and how they have been perceived over time. The performance of black American identity feels very different from actually living in a black body. Theres a dissonance between inside and outside.

PMID:  Cell Physiol Biochem. 2016 ;40(5):1221-1229. Epub 2016 Dec 14. PMID: 27960166 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV Enhances Cisplatin Chemosensitivity in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells Through Inhibition of B7-H3. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Chemoresistance is a major obstacle to successful chemotherapy for human non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Astragaloside IV, the component of Astragalus membranaceus, has been reported to exhibit anti-inflammation, anti-cancer and immunoregulatory properties. In the present study, we investigated the role of astragaloside IV in the chemoresistance to cisplatin in NSCLC cells.METHODS: We established astragaloside IV-suppressed NSCLC cell lines including A549, HCC827, and NCI-H1299 and evaluated their sensitivity to cisplatin in vitro. In addition, we examined the mRNA and protein levels of B7-H3 in response to cisplatin-based chemotherapy.RESULTS: We showed that high doses of astragaloside IV (10, 20, 40 ng/ml) inhibited NSCLC cell growth, whereas low concentrations of astragaloside IV (1, 2.5, 5 ng/ml) had no obvious cytotoxicity on cell viability. Moreover, combined treatment with astragaloside IV significantly increased chemosensitivity to cisplatin in NSCLC cells. On the molecular level, astragaloside IV co-treatment significantly inhibited the mRNA and protein levels of B7-H3 in the presence of cisplatin. In addition, ectopic expression of B7-H3 diminished the sensitization role of astragaloside IV in cellular responses to cisplatin in NSCLC cells.CONCLUSION: These results demonstrate that astragaloside IV enhances chemosensitivity to cisplatin via inhibition of B7-H3 and that treatment with astragaloside IV and inhibition of B7-H3 serve as potential therapeutic approach for lung cancer patients.

Trump's True Agenda Aside From the Lies "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The True Trump Agenda Far From the Madding Crowd

 

It all began in 2015 when billionaire, Donald J. trump, threw his hat in the ring for his bid to the presidency. The competition was fierce, but largely inept among the GOP establishment. On the other end of the spectrum was Hillary Clinton, a corrupt career politician, with blood on her hands and a penchant for corruption, and Bernie Sanders, a Communist in socialist clothing with a long history of fiscal unaccountability and nothing but giveaway promises to further plunge America into inevitable currency collapse even faster. The problem, there were enough Americans, according to the fake news media that would buy into Hillarys entitlement as first woman in the oval office or millennials who might push Bernie, the deficit madman, over the top!

True voters

What the bought off media didnt realize and the DNC under estimated much less the GOP establishment who would go along with anybody burning the house down as long as their jobs survived, was that working class White Americans along with record numbers of Blacks and Latinos saw something in Donald J. Trump that resonated! Trump knew what the average American wanted and needed, a man of the people, according to talk radio host, Michael Savage. Why had the DC establishment ignored the open borders problem? Why had the Washington establishment voted in more taxes, more restrictive regulations that killed jobs and ignored the rising anger of those who wanted a job not handouts from big government?

Mainstream treason

MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNBC, all had received money from the Obama administration during the 787 billion dollar bail out their influence had been bought while CEOs within those organizations had intermarried with Democrat leadership. The fix was in, but there were rumblings after 2010 when the Democrats lost record number nationwide in state, federal, and mayoral offices. The public had spoken! No more taxes! Listen to the plight of the people! But, still the GOP refused to make the very changes they promised and under John Boehner and Eric Cantor, excuses would replace results! Mitch McConnell specialized in than and even now in first assuring victory and then reporting after another loss that they had worked so hard only to fall short!

Dear Minted, About Your $100 In-Home Photo Shoots "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Dear Minted,

Ive been photographing families for seven years. Let me tell you; its been a long slog. Ive learned so many things through the years that make my work consistent and creates happy clients, Ive also learned that I work in a community of other independent photographers and we have also come to help, rely on and yes, compete with one another and still be friends at the end of the day.

Minted, Im not so sure we can be friends. Friends work to understand one anothers backgrounds and the difficulties we face and we tend to value one another, not use one another or pull our friends into schemes that dont work to their advantage based on false promises. We also like our friends to earn living wages.

I see youre offering in-home photo shoots for $100. Wow. What a bargain!

How are photographers paid? You are paying your contract photographers $50 per session. On paper it sounds like $100 per hour for the photographer, which, to just about anyone, sounds awesome. But its not. In any case when you account for travel time/parking, culling the session (selecting the 50 best images) and a buffer for uncooperative clients each session should probably be at least 1.5 hours apart. Lets do the math:

  • 5 sessions per day with 30 minute lunch break: $250
  • Parking or Uber: -$50
  • Tax rate for self-employed (35%) $70

Total take-home for 8-hour day: $130 or $16.25 per hour.

Just at living wage for San Francisco and also without gear or business or health insurance costs taken into account. Once you add those in you are looking at a wage below the living wage calculator.

Astragaloside IV attenuates cognitive impairments induced by transient cerebral ischemia and reperfusion in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Neurosci Lett. 2017 Feb 3 ;639:114-119. Epub 2016 Dec 21. PMID: 28011393 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV attenuates cognitive impairments induced by transient cerebral ischemia and reperfusion in mice via anti-inflammatory mechanisms. Abstract:  Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) is the main active component isolated from the traditional Chinese medicinal herb Astragalus membranaceus. Studies have demonstrated that AS-IV has neuroprotective effects in cerebral ischemic models. In this study, we aimed to investigate the effects of AS-IV on memory impairment induced by transient cerebral ischemia and reperfusion in mice, as well as the associated signaling mechanisms. Severe memory deficits were induced by bilateral common carotid artery occlusion (BCCAO) in mice as indicated in the Morris water maze test in this study. Oral administration of AS-IV (10 and 20mg/kg, once per day, started 7days before surgery and continued for 7days after surgery) significantly attenuated memory impairment and neuroinflammation. Moreover, AS-IV treatment significantly reduced the expression of toll-like receptor-4 (TLR4) and its downstream adaptor proteins, including myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88 (MyD88), toll/interleukin-1 receptor-domain containing adaptor-inducing interferon- (TRIF) and tumour necrosis factor receptor associated factor-6 (TRAF6), and subsequently inhibited NF-B phosphorylation. It is well-known that cerebral ischemia and reperfusion injury enhances the formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and further neuroinflammation. Importantly, we found that AS-IV suppressed NLRP3 inflammasome activation by controlling ROS production. In addition, AS-IV markedly reduced overactivation of microglia and the overexpression of inflammatory cytokines in the hippocampus compared with the transient cerebral ischemia and reperfusion group. These results suggest that AS-IV might possess neuroprotective effects against transient cerebral ischemia and reperfusion partly through its anti-inflammatory effects by inhibiting TLR4 signaling pathway and NLRP3 inflammasome overactivation.

Last week, Katie was left devastated when her orange and white kitty, named Peanut, managed to escape during the night from her home in Northampton, England, and failed to return. While that alone would be enough to concern any devoted pet owner, Katie had another reason to worry; the region has been experiencing a spate of mysterious cat murders, and the perpetrator had recently struck again not far from where she lives.

Rather than simply hope Peanut came back safe on his own Katie got creative.

"I couldn't eat and had to have a day off work because I was so worried!" Katie told The Dodo. "I started thinking of ways I could ask people to look for him other than Facebook and posters. Then had a brainwave and downloaded Tinder."

Tinder, for those who don't know, is an app that allows users to create photo profiles (typically of themselves) and a brief bio, usually in hopes of finding a romantic "match" with other people living in a certain proximity to them. For an extra fee, the app will push a user's profile to even more people in the area.

That's the option Katie used only, she made her profile about Peanut, and added a plea for folks to keep an eye out for him.

Lost pets aren't the typical fair you'll find on Tinder, of course, but Peanut's profile was quite well-received: "...

The Philippines commits to science-anchored fishery policies "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The agency responsible for looking after the Philippines fish stocks has pledged to step up the science behind its management of the resource as it announced new reforms to the sector. Healthy fisheries are critical to the well-being of all Filipinos, and we are committed to making fishing sustainable nationwide, said Eduardo Gongona, head of the countrys Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, in a statement from the Environmental Defense Fund. Schooling fish. Photo: NOAA in the public domain. Fishermen and women in the Philippines haul in more fish than most other countries on Earth. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, it ranked 10th in terms of total catch in 2014, when the countrys take was more than 2.35 million metric tons (2.59 million tons). Filipinos consumed 90 percent of fish caught in their country. That translated to 32.7 kilograms (72.1 pounds) of fish per person in 2011, the 13th-most in the world. At the same time, the island nations stocks have been depleted. Some 70 percent of fish populations in the Philippines are overfished, the Environmental Defense Fund says. Thats why it will work to overhaul its decision-making process by 2022, the country announced at the Our Ocean conference, held Oct. 5 and 6 in St. Julians, Malta. Fishing gear.

Another Madagascar environmental activist imprisoned "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

ANTANANARIVO, Madagascar In Madagascar, speaking out against corporate wrongdoing or government corruption can be dangerous business. So it took some courage for Raleva, a 61-year-old farmer, to stand up and ask questions at a meeting in his village in southeast Madagascar on September 27. A Chinese-Malagasy company, previously expelled from the area, had come to announce that it would resume its gold-mining work. Company representatives had brought with them the chef de district, a powerful local official. The conflict began in August 2016, when the mining company, managed by (and named after) Gianna Mac Lai Sima, a Malagasy woman of Asian descent who lives in the nearby city of Mananjary, came to mine the area. Madagascars mining ministry shut down the operation, citing a lack of permits. The company has since submitted an application to the National Environment Office, but no permits have been issued, according to Hery Rajaomanana, the head of the offices environmental impact unit. Yet at the fateful meeting three weeks ago, the company told the people of Vohilava, Ralevas village, that the permits had been granted. When Raleva demanded to see them, he was arrested, and has been locked up ever since. He should not have to spend one night in jail, Tamara Lger, who runs the Madagascar desk for Amnesty International Southern Africa, told Mongabay. But such is the life of an activist in Madagascar. In recent years, those fighting wildlife trafficking or land grabbing have, in the end, often been targeted by the

Astragaloside IV attenuates podocyte apoptosis mediated by endoplasmic reticulum stress in diabetic nephropathy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Pharmacol. 2016 ;7:500. Epub 2016 Dec 21. PMID: 28066247 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV Attenuates Podocyte Apoptosis Mediated by Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress through Upregulating Sarco/Endoplasmic Reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase 2 Expression in Diabetic Nephropathy. Abstract:  Sarco/endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+)-ATPase (SERCA) plays a central role in the pathogenesis of diabetes. This protein has been recognized as a potential target for diabetic therapy. In this study, we identified astragaloside IV (AS-IV) as a potent modulator of SERCA inhibiting renal injury in diabetic status. Increasing doses of AS-IV (2, 6, and 18 mg kg(-1) day(-1)) were administered intragastrically to db/db mice for 8 weeks. Biochemical and histopathological approaches were conducted to evaluate the therapeutic effects of AS-IV. Cultured mouse podocytes were used to further explore the underlying mechanism in vitro. AS-IV dose-dependently increased SERCA activity and SERCA2 expression, and suppressed ER stress-mediated and mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in db/db mouse kidney. AS-IV also normalized glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity, improved renal function, and ameliorated glomerulosclerosis and renal inflammation in db/db mice. In palmitate stimulated podocytes, AS-IV markedly improved inhibitions of SERCA activity and SERCA2 expression, restored intracellular Ca(2+) homeostasis, and attenuated podocyte apoptosis in a dose-dependent manner with a concomitant abrogation of ER stress as evidenced by the downregulation of GRP78, cleaved ATF6, phospho-IRE1 and phospho-PERK, and the inactivation of both ER stress-mediated and mitochondria-mediated apoptotic pathways. Furthermore, SERCA2b knockdown eliminated the effect of AS-IV on ER stress and ER stress-mediated apoptotic pathway, whereas its overexpression exhibited an anti-apoptotic effect. Our data obtained from in vivo and in vitro studies demonstrate that AS-IV attenuates renal injury in diabetes subsequent to inhibiting ER stress-induced podocyte apoptosis through restoring SERCA activity and SERCA2 expression.

Emails Reveal Bill Clinton Met With Vladimir Putin Just Before Uranium One Deal "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 


Tyler Durden's picture

If President Trump or anyone even remotely close to his presidency, including his best friend from 2nd grade that he hadn't seen in 40 years, sought to meet with key Russian nuclear officials, in Moscow, just months before the federal government approved a very controversial deal handing Vladimir Putin 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, despite an ongoing investigation into Russian fraud, bribery, extortion and money laundering, it would be the only story played on a 24 x 7 loop on CNN and MSNBC.

Ironically, that is exactly what new emails dug up by The Hill show that Bill Clinton did in June 2010, just months before the Uranium One deal was approved by a committee on which his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sat.  Oh, and did we mention that Bill's Clinton Foundation just happened to collect millions of dollars in bribes donations from Russian sources and Uranium One shareholders shortly after his Moscow meetings?

As you will recall, the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), approved the Uranium One transaction in October 2010.  According to new emails revealed by The Hill, just months before that approval, Bill Clinton sought permission from the State Department, run by his wife at the time, to meet Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatoms board of supervisors, the company which was ultimately approved to purchase Uranium One.

As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom ...

Adobe Scribbler Can Auto Colorize B&W Photos "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Adobe is teasing an impressive new technology called Scribbler. Its an interactive deep learning-based image generation system that you can use to automatically colorize black-and-white photos. Above is a 6.5-minute demo of Scribbler.

The system was developed using the Adobe Sensei deep learning system by researchers at Adobe, Georgia Tech, and UC Berkeley. The scientists trained a neural network on tens of thousands of carefully chosen photos to teach it facial features in new photos and fill in realistic colors (based on its best guess).

Here are two examples of black-and-white portraits that were automatically turned into color photos by Adobe Scribbler:

The colorization can be done with a single click. For more customization, you can tell Scribbler what you want certain portions of photos to look like.

In addition to photos, the system can also be used on drawings and sketches:

Project Scribbler was publicly demonstrated yesterday as a Sneak Peek at the Adobe MAX 2017 conference. The demo was portrait-focused, but it seems Adobe is aiming to make this technology word for any type of photo.

  • But he was shocked when the social media website removed it after a complaint 
  • But Mr Cox's friends have changed their own profiles to add the word 'English'
  • Facebook said it violated policy to use fake name - but he said it was 'pathetic'

Tim Cox said 'English' was his nickname at school and he added it to his Facebook proifle

Facebook has banned the word 'English' from an electrician's profile despite him using it on the website for nine years.

Tim Cox, 54, of Derby, said it was his nickname at school so he put it in front of his name when he joined Facebook.

But this week he was shocked when the social media website removed it after a complaint by a member of the public.

Facebook said it was a violation of its policies to use a fake name, even though other profiles use names such as Peter Sutcliffe or Osama bin Laden.

After hearing about the decision many of Mr Cox's friends also changed their own profiles to add the word 'English'.

He said: 'I'm not somebody who gets upset at things easily but I really did at this. I got a message from Facebook to say somebody had asked them to review my profile because of my name.

Study: Broccoli Good for Leaky Gut and Other Digestive Problems "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Broccoli.Raw fresh broccoli on old wooden table.

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

Among cruciferous vegetables, which include cauliflower, cabbage, and Brussel sprouts, broccoli seems to be the most researched for its antioxidant, cancer preventative, and anti-carcinogen qualities.

A 2017 study at Penn State University was centered on how broccoli and cruciferous vegetables may affect gut health, including permeability or leaky gut and other gut disturbances.

Leaky gut or gut permeability has been brought to the forefront of medical concern since it has been determined to be a source of many other maladies. Two major reasons for this are:

1. It blocks nutrient absorption from the small intestines into the blood stream.

2. It allows toxins from ingested foods to escape the elimination process and enter the blood stream.

These two concerns align with what Dr. Max Gerson, who created the Gerson Therapy for cancer and chronic disease, had proposed circa 1950 as the major causes of cancer and other non-infectious diseases, insufficient nutrition and overwhelming environmental toxicity. More on leaky gut syndrome here.

2017 Study That Determined Broccoli Benefits Leaky Gut

Recent medical research has shown how the gut affects our overall health, beyond poor digestion.

The gut could be considered the center of good and bad health.

According to Penn State Professor of Agriculture Sciences Gary Perdew, who was involved with the study:

There are a lot of reasons we want to explore helping with gastrointestinal health and one reason is if you have problems, like a leaky gut, and start to suffer inflammation, that may then lead to other conditions, like arthritis and heart disease.

Keeping your gut healthy and making sure you have good barrier functions so youre not getting this leaky effect would be really big.

Astragaloside IV inhibits metastasis in hepatoma cells through the suppression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Rep. 2017 Mar ;37(3):1725-1735. Epub 2017 Jan 19. PMID: 28112375 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV inhibits metastasis in hepatoma cells through the suppression of epithelial-mesenchymal transition via the Akt/GSK-3/-catenin pathway. Abstract:  Our previous studies demonstrated that traditional Chinese herbal medicine 'Songyou Yin' inhibited the growth and invasion of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells, and altered epithelialmesenchymal transition (EMT) markers in oxaliplatintreated HCC tissues and cell lines. In the present study, we aimed to explore whether astragaloside IV (AS-IV), a component of 'Songyou Yin', can affect the growth and invasion of HCC cells and the underlying mechanism involved. Human HCC celllines Huh7 and MHCC97-H, with low and high metastatic potential, respectively, were treated with increasing doses of AS-IV. The Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8), plate clone formation, Transwell, wound healing and immunofluorescence assays were used to investigate the effects of AS-IV on HCC cell proliferation, migration and invasion. The protein expression levels were analyzed by western blotting and immunofluorescence assay. The CCK-8 and plate clone formation assays showed that AS-IV had little effect on the proliferation of HCC cells in vitro. However, the Transwell and wound healing assays demonstrated that AS-IV inhibited the migration and invasion of HCC cells in a dose-dependent manner and the morphology of HCC cells was altered from spindle into oval shaped in the AS-IV pretreated groups. The upregulation of E-cadherin and downregulation of N-cadherin, vimentin, -SMA and Slug were also observed in the AS-IV pretreated groups. Additionally, AS-IV treatment resulted in a profound decrease in the phosphorylated forms of Akt and GSK-3, which in turn inhibited the expression of -catenin. Thus, we conclude that AS-IV attenuates the invasive and migratory abilities of HCC cells through the inhibition of EMT by targeting the Akt/GSK-3/-catenin pathway.

Sacrificial Virgins: HPV Vaccine Documentary Reports Lawsuits from Japan to Colombia Increase Worldwide "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Health Impact News Editor Comments

While lawsuits against the manufacturers of the HPV vaccine for injuries and deaths due to the HPV vaccine increase, there are none in the U.S., as vaccine manufacturers have legal immunity from lawsuits due to injuries or deaths from their vaccine products.

In addition, the mainstream corporate media in the U.S. censors anything negative related to vaccines, so one must look outside of the U.S. to fully understand the devastating consequences of this vaccine.

LONDON, UK.

Manufacturers of the controversial HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix routinely administered worldwide despite widespread calls for withdrawal on safety grounds will soon be sued in courts across the globe.

The topical film A penny for your pain that launched on October 18, (2017) on YouTube, describes how patients as far apart as Japan and Colombia are set to sue pharmaceutical giants Merck and GlaxoSmithKline for damages, following serious adverse reactions, with patient groups in the US, UK and Spain closely following the cases and Australian legal attention focused on prescribing doctors.

The Bitcoin Gold (BTG) User Activated Soft Fork Happening in Less than 5 Days "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Earlier this month we have told you about the upcoming Bitcoin fork called Bitcoin Gold (BTG), but now just a couple of days before it actually happening there are much more details than at the initial announcement. There are still quite a few things that are not clear yet, but the user interest in this fork is growing and that is no wonder when users holding BTC will be getting the same amount of BTG on October 25 when the fork is expected to happen. Bitcoin Gold (BTG) forks at block 491407 where a snapshot of the Bitcoin blockchain will be made in order to credit Bitcoin holders with their Bitcoin Gold coins (the same amount of BTC they hold will be available in BTG). Bitcoin Gold promises replay protection, meaning that after the fork occurs the two networks will continue to function independently form each other and transactions of coins in one of them will not affect the other one.

One of the most interesting things about the new Bitcoin Gold (BTG) is that after forking from Bitcoin it will adopt a different mining algorithm and the chosen one is Equihash (the one introduced by ZCash), so the new coin will be mineable with video cards and not ASICs. This is what is essentially getting the attention of the many GPU miner out there that do not have any or just a little ASIC mining power. This is essentially eliminating the large ASIC mining farms from able to mine the coin as there are currently no known ASIC miners available for the Equihash algorithm, though it still cannot do anything about any large GPU mining farms and such also exist similar to the big ASIC mining farms. Still smaller GPU miners will be able to get into the mining of Bitcoin Gold (BTG) even with one video card, something they are not able to do with Bitcoin anymore.

There are still thing that are not clear about the fork such as what exchanges will support it and will credit the users holding Bitcoin with BTG after the fork. Some exchanges like HitBTC and Yobit, along with a few mining pools, have expressed their will to support Bitcoin Gold. The biggest and most used Bitcoin exchanges however are still to come out with off...

Man Sells All His Belongings and Quits Job to Travel Australia with His Rescue Cat "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Rich East Traveling with Cat

Traveling with your cat might seem like a far-off dream, but there are folks who are able to make it a reality. Australian adventurer Rich East has trekked more than 50,000 kilometers (over 31,000 miles) in a camper van with his rescue cat, Willow. Known together as Van Cat Meow, theyve seen the countrys six states and two territories and done things that many of us only dream ofsuch as sailing the Great Barrier Reef. Along the way, they've camped on mountains and enjoyed the (gravel) roads less taken.

East gave up a conventional lifestyle in 2015 so that he could begin his massive, life-altering journey. I sold my house, all of my possessions, and quit my job so I could take the trip of a lifetime, he explained. But one thing I couldnt say goodbye [to] was this little cat so the obvious decision was to take her with me. Their deep bond is evident in Easts travel photography, which often showcases the two of them relaxing along the coastline or enjoying a swing in a makeshift mountain hammock.

Many cats arent meant for these types of adventures, but Willow is well suited for nomadic living. Some people think its odd that Im traveling with a cat, but Willow is so chilled out and absolutely loves our new lifestyle. East, however, takes necessary precautions when it comes to her safety and outfits her with a special collar. With the tracking collar, I have the peace of mind that if she decides to go for a hike I will be straight onto her.

Although the pairs giant road trip was completed in early 2017, they have adapted to life on the road and dont have any plans on stopping. East continues to chronicle their trips on Instagram, and hes compiled some of the best shots into a 2018 calendar now for sale in the Van Cat Meow online shop.

Two and a half years ago, Rich East quit his job and sold all of his belongings, all for the sake of travel.

Shy Cat Never Hugged His Mom Until He Realized She Was Pregnant "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Lisa Kitchen and her husband got their cat, Max, when he was just a kitten, as soon as they got back from their honeymoon. Kitchens 19-year-old cat had just passed away, and she desperately wanted another one but from the day they got him, Max made it very clear he preferred Kitchens husband over her. 

Credit: Lisa Kitchen

When we first initially got Max he instantly was attached to my husband, Kitchen told The Dodo. He would curl up on his chest and fall asleep. He would meow for him to pick him up. Me, not so much. 

Max has always been an incredibly playful, affectionate cat, but for some reason, never with Kitchen. He never cuddled or played with her, or paid her very much attention at all until one day, everything changed. 

Credit: Lisa Kitchen

Kitchen came home from work to Max meowing loudly at her, as if he wanted her attention. He continued to randomly meow at her for several days, and Kitchen decided to try giving him some love in return, which weirdly, he happily accepted. It was strange, but Kitchen didnt think too much of it, until Max started cuddling with her while she slept.

I started waking up with him sleeping on my legs, Kitchen said. The next night he would curl between my legs, which is a huge deal because he would never come that close. Finally he is sleeping on my stomach now. If I'm sleeping on my stomach then he tries to balance himself on my back.

The Next Generation of Currency Wars: Private vs. State-backed Crypto "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

By: Tho Bishop
Cryptomoney-Cryptocurrency-Cryptography-Btc-Bitcoin-1813505.jpg

Recently Russia announced that it will be unleashing a CryptoRuble, just a week after Vladimir Putin strongly criticized Bitcoin and other private cryptocurrencies.  When announcing the move, Minister of Communications Nikolay Nikiforov acknowledged that it was in part inspired by the aim of getting ahead of other governments:

I confidently declare that we run CryptoRuble for one simple reason: if we do not, then after two months our neighbors in the EurAsEC will.

In doing so, Russia is following the lead of another country that too has become hostile to private crypto, China. Last July the Peoples Bank of China became the first central bank to announce it had developed a crypto-prototype that it plans to offer alongside the traditional renminbi.

That the first forays into state-backed cryptocurrency comes from two countries with a history of restricting a free and open internet is not surprising. While Bitcoin originated as a way to opt out of government control of money supply, increasingly governments see the underlying technology as a way to increase their control of the economy.

As Xiong Yue explained:

For example, if the government plans to subsidize certain farms, say some corn farms, to support this sector of agriculture, they can directly add a certain amount of money to th...

Heres How To Save Your Family From Technology Creep "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

For the average American family, carving out space for simple, face-to-face fellowship seems like an increasingly difficult task. There are myriad reasons for this. Two-parent families are increasingly dual-income households, and thus balancing a 9-to-5 work schedule with parenting, housework, grocery shopping, and their childrens extra-curriculars.

Many children dont just have school in the mornings and afternoons: they have soccer practice, flute or ballet lessons, choir, AWANA or Boy or Girl Scouts, homework, etc. We ofteneven inadvertentlysign up for more than we can handle, then find ourselves overwhelmed by social, scholastic, or communal obligations.

This is why the University of Denvers Lynn Schofield Clark told NPR this week that We have set up a society where its structurally very difficult for families to spend time together.

Smart Devices Affect Family Time

Clark wasnt just talking about the physical tasks and barriers that make family time difficult. She made this statement because of a new, lethal bevy of technological temptations that often pull families apart. According to nonprofit organization Commonsense Media, 98 percent of homes in the United States now contain a mobile device, such as a tablet or smartphone. Thats up from 52 percent just six years ago.

The average amount of time our smallest children spend with those handheld devices each day is skyrocketing, too: from five minutes a day in 2011, to 15 minutes a day in 2013, to 48 minutes a day in 2017, NPR reporter Anya Kamenetz adds.

Forty-two percent of small children now have their own device. Thats up from 7 percent four years ago, and less than 1 percent in 2011. Almost half of children ages eight and younger use devices often or sometimes before bed in the eveninga habit that experts say can harm their sleep habits.

Perhaps one of the most shocking statistics that Commonsense Media shares, however, is the fact that nearly half (42 percent) of U.S. families report that they leave the television on always or most of the time in their home, regardless of whether someone is watching. Research has shown this so-called background TV reduces parent-child interaction, which in turn can hurt language development, Kamenetz writes.

All these technological activities influence a familys ability to step away from the frenzy and spend time together.

Alan Gomez // ICE plans major immigration jail expansion "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

ICE plans major immigration jail expansion: [usatoday.com] In recent weeks, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has put out requests to identify privately-run jail sites in Chicago, Detroit, St. Paul, Salt Lake City and southern Texas, according to notices published on a federal contracting website. It did not publicly announce its plans to house 4,000 more detainees at the facilities.

The detention expansion would represent the latest step in President Trump's efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. From Jan. 22 through Sept. 9, the agency arrested 97,482 people suspected of being in the country illegally, a 43% increase over the same time period in 2016 under President Barack Obama, according to the latest ICE figures.

During the same span, ICE arrested 28,011 undocumented immigrants without a criminal record, a 179% increase from the same period in 2016, when the Obama administration mainly went after those who committed serious offenses.

Currently, ICE houses anywhere between 31,000 and 41,000 detainees each day in federal prisons, privately-operated facilities and local jails.

Column: Wouldnt You Like to See Something Strange? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I remember certain parts distinctly; or I should better say that the images are clear; some details less so. I was cooking something, but not in a house. It was a professional kitche; there were lots of pots and a few Dutch ovens. I also remember seeing a tin food mill hanging close by. I know I was preparing some kind of food, but it wasnt a quick dish.  For some reason, I think it was a terrine of some sort. As I looked away from what I was cooking toward the entrance of the area, something happened. The pain was sharp and sudden. I think it was in the chest. I remember holding myself up with my left hand against the stove and a hat my hat flew  off to the side and on to a pilot flame. It burned, and I got burned trying to hold myself up, but pulling my hand away made me fall to the floor.

[Pixabay].

Then, when I hit the floor, I could see beneath the stove. It was black with charcoal dust, and I thought it needed cleaning. A moment later, someone was yelling it was very muffled and then I was flipped over. The rest I remember even less well. The yelling faded away. It got darker at least as I remember it now it was a shimmering, odd sort of dark foam almost like the edge of a fog made from soap suds, and it was sort of everywhere with no starting point. I stood up and waited around. Someone was there, but I dont remember who.

The next thing I remember is sitting under a tamarind tree at home. It was the one in our backyard, my hands were covered in sticky pulp and I still had pieces of the husk attached to my skin from the goo. I remember more stuff later,  just as youd expect.

The tamarind tree is my earliest memory. The earlier story is the one I told my parents as soon as I could talk. It didnt go over well.

In a Christian-dominated society, toddlers talking of such things is neither entertainment nor encouraged. Its an unappreciated and unwanted type of childhood storytelling that may require a physician, an exorcist or both. Such memories of survival are described by most Christian faiths as the workings of demons. Preexistence is heresy, And when I occasionally tell the story even now, I still creep people out, and it goes from discomfort to fear to anger.

Other faiths and cultures arent so sure about the demonic origins of memories crossing the death passage. The transmigration of souls is/...

Sacrificial Virgins: HPV Vaccine Documentary Reports Lawsuits from Japan to Colombia Increase Worldwide "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Australian Kristin Clulow, injured following treatment in 2008: I would like to say to them that what they are doing is unethical. They need to research their product they need to take it off the market and research it because what they are doing is hurting people this is a permanent brain injury that Ive had to live with for nine years.

Health Impact News Editor Comments

While lawsuits against the manufacturers of the HPV vaccine for injuries and deaths due to the HPV vaccine increase, there are none in the U.S., as vaccine manufacturers have legal immunity from lawsuits due to injuries or deaths from their vaccine products.

In addition, the mainstream corporate media in the U.S. censors anything negative related to vaccines, so one must look outside of the U.S. to fully understand the devastating consequences of this vaccine.

Sacrificial Virgins Part III: A Penny for Your Pain

LONDON, UK.

Manufacturers of the controversial HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix routinely administered worldwide despite widespread calls for withdrawal on safety grounds will soon be sued in courts across the globe.

The topical film A penny for your pain that launched on October 18, (2017) on YouTube, describes how patients as far apart as Japan and Colombia are set to sue pharmaceutical giants Merck and GlaxoSmithKline for damages, following serious adverse reactions, with patient groups in the US, UK and Spain closely following the cases and Australian legal attention focused on prescribing doctors.

In A penny for your pain, eminent Japanese neurologist Dr. Hirokuni Beppu says:

At present about 120 persons are making law suits against pharmaceutical companies. It is now going on in eight cities in Japan and other additional people are also thinking to start.

Activists Travel to Europe to Tell Backers of Trans Mountain Pipeline the Project Wont Survive Indigenous Resistance "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from The Guardian

The controversial expansion of a pipeline that would carry tar sands crude from Alberta to British Columbias coast will be doomed by the rising power of Indigenous land rights.

Thats the message that Kanahus Manuel, an Indigenous activist from the Secwepemc Nation in central BC, plans to deliver to banks financing the project as she travels through Europe this week.

Shell have in hand a report being released today by the Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade, which argues that Texas-based Kinder Morgan has misled financial backers about the risks of expanding its TransMountain pipeline, almost half of which runs across unceded Secwepemc territory.

The project, whose cost has ballooned from $5.4 to $7.4bn, would nearly triple capacity on an existing pipeline to ship 890,000 barrels a day to Asian markets, locking in expanded production of one of the worlds most carbon-intensive oils.

The report details significant legal, financial and reputation risks that amount to serious obstacles it says have been downplayed by Kinder Morgan in its dealings with Canadian and international banks.

The key risks, identified by economists and lawyers based on the pipelines history, Canadian legal precedents, and financial documents, include Kinder Morgans plans to build on lands whose ownership is hotly contested.

Aloe Skin Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Research Finds Aloe Vera May Prevent and Treat Skin Cancer

Posted on: Friday, December 21st 2012 at 5:00 am
This article is copyrighted by GreenMedInfo LLC, 2017

Research from the University of Belgrade School of Medicine has confirmed what other recent studies have been finding that Aloe vera and its constituents inhibit the process of skin cell proliferation that accompanies skin cancer.
The researchers tested Aloe-emodin, a constituent of Aloe, with human skin cells keratinocytes after being treated with radiation. Once radiated, keratinocytes will typically proliferate in the process of forming skin tumors.
The researchers found that the Aloe-emodin significantly stopped the proliferation process. This confirmed Aloe's benefit in halting the progression of tumor formation after radiation by the sun.
This study confirms other recent findings. Researchers from South Korea's Gachon University of Medicine and Science found that Aloe-emodin specifically halted the growth of human cancerous liver cells. The researchers found that Aloe-emodin stimulated a genetic change within the cancerous cells that not only halted their expansion, but induced cell death among tumor cells.
In 2010, researchers from the China Medical University found this anticancer effect was not exclusive to Aloe's Aloe-emodin. The researchers found that Aloe constitents Emodin and Rhein also produced anticancer effects, which included the halting of tumor progression and cell death among cancer cells.
The research actually found this anticancer effect was greater with Emodin, as compared with Aloe-emodin and Rhein. But Aloe-emodin was observed having stronger cell repair abilities for those cells that had not become cancerous.

Adobe Cloak is Content-Aware Fill for Video "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Adobe demoed a number of technologies at Adobe MAX 2017 yesterday, including something called Cloak. Its basically Photoshops Content-Aware Fill for video you can easily remove unwanted things from video, as you can see in the 6-minute demo above.

[Cloak] enables removing unwanted things from a video by imagining what would appear if these unwanted things were removed, Adobe says.

After creating a mask that selects the object/area in your video youd like to remove, the system will intelligently fill in that area in each frame.

Selecting a pole thats obstructing the video of a building in a video.

The results are impressive.

Cloak can remove people entirely from a panning shot.

Or you can even narrow things down and only remove a small portion of the scene, like the chest strap from a guys backpack

A handy use case for Cloak could be removing action camera tripods and mounts from shots. No word yet on if or when well actually see Cloak arrive as a feature in a software release.

Conventional medicine offers little hope in the fight against deadly malignant melanoma, but there are multiple foods, botanicals, and vitamins with proven anti-melanoma activity within natures pharmacopeia
Cutaneous malignant melanoma, one of the most aggressive types of tumors, accounts for 75% of death due to cancer, and its incidence is on the rise worldwide (1, 2). In North America, it has become the most prevalent form of cancer for the demographic aged 25 to 29 (3). When detected early, surgical excision of the primary site is the standard of care. However, metastatic melanoma, wherein the tumor cells detach from the primary growth and disseminate to distant organs, is notoriously resistant to conventional radiation, immunotherapy, and chemotherapy (3).
Even after surgical removal, recurrence is a distinct possibility, and therapies employed by the biomedical paradigm have limited success (4). Commonly employed treatments include the DNA alkylating chemotherapeutic agent, dacarbazine, which have response rates of 10 to 26%, most of which are partial, and are accompanied by side effects including anemia, nausea, neutropenia, and thrombocytopenia (5). More selective therapies such as BRAF inhibitors, targeted for the small percentage of advanced melanoma patients with a genetic BRAF V600 mutation, are associated with widespread resistance and the development of other cancers, including keratoacanthoma and squamous cell carcinoma, as side effects (6).
For metastatic melanoma, the five-year survival rate is dismal...

Wild Sloth Tries To Cling To Her Tree As She Watches People Cut It Down "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

With a few swift blows of an ax to the trunk of the tree where she lived, a wild sloths life was never the same. 

Heartbreaking undercover video shows the moment a wild animal is ripped from the forest to be sold into captivity and used to entertain tourists, who are often misled to believe the sloths have been rescued.

Credit: WAP

The footage, just released by World Animal Protection (WAP), shows a few men going into the forest in Peru to illegally chop down trees in the Amazon rainforest (roughly 80 percent of Peruvian timber exports come from illegal practices like this, according to WAP). When there are animals in the trees, illegal loggers often sell them in wildlife markets to make some extra cash.

How To Stop All Future Mass Shootings "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

This article was originally published by Brandon Smith at Alt-Market.com

In my last article A Tactical Analysis Of The Las Vegas Mass Shooting Incident, I outlined the precarious nature of the mainstream narrative and why the Vegas event in particular requires serious independent investigation into the possibility that Stephen Paddock did not plan or execute the event alone, or, he did not plan or execute the event at all, and someone else with far more tactical knowledge and shooting experience committed the murders outside the Mandalay Bay Hotel. Given that the FBI and Vegas sheriffs timeline seems to change every few days and that Mandalay surveillance footage is locked up tight, I think it is safe to say that someone more professional, and not muzzled by bureaucracy, needs be involved.

Setting aside the inconsistencies in the official narrative, questioning the motives behind this particular attack does not really bring us any closer to a practical solution. Of course, if you are one of those people that obsessively embraces the crisis actor theory, then you likely think that nothing much needs to be solved because no one actually died. I am not very interested in this impractical theory reminiscent of The Truman Show, nor the people that promote it. It reminds me of the 9/11 hologram plane theory remember, the theory designed to discredit the more legitimate 9/11 truth movement which included hundreds of scientists, architects and engineers with real arguments and evidence? Yeah, those establishment disinformation tactics did not go away; they are still being used today to undermine honest and rational investigations of other potential false flag events.

Ask fake event theorists for ANY concrete evidence that a single death was theatrical and that thousands of concertgoers and their families are part of the conspiracy, and these guys will demand that YOU show them the dead bodies and prove that the event wasnt faked.  In other words, you must prove a negative, which is of course impossible.

The Nature Conservancy is Wrong. Planting Trees Not Equivalent to Stopping Burning of Oil "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

By CHRIS LANGE

Originally published at Redd-Monitor.org

Here we go again. Plant more trees to combat climate change: scientists is a Reuters headline from earlier this week. The article is based on a press release put out by The Nature Conservancy about a paper published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The papers argument relies on the scientific fraud that the carbon stored in forests, soil, and landscapes is climatically the same as the carbon stored underground in fossil fuels.

The paper is titled Natural Climate Solutions. It starts as follows:

The Paris Climate Agreement declared a commitment to hold the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2 C above preindustrial levels. Most Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) scenarios consistent with limiting warming to below 2 C assume large-scale use of carbon dioxide removal methods, in addition to reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from human activities such as burning fossil fuels and land use activities. The most mature carbon dioxide removal method is improved land stewardship, yet confusion persists about the specific set of actions that should be taken to both increase sinks with improved land stewardship and reduce emissions from land use activities.

The paper looks at 20 conservation, restoration, and/or improved land management actions that increase carbon storage and/or avoid greenhouse gas emissions across global forests, wetlands, grasslands, and agricultural lands.

Enbridge Backtracks on Decision to Seize Assets from Environmental Group "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Global News.ca

Staff at the Vancouver office of an environmental group got an unexpected visit on Tuesday from sheriffs who were holding court documents authorizing them to seize the organizations assets on behalf of Enbridge.

Karen Mahon with Stand.earth, formerly known as Forest Ethics, said the documents authorized the sheriffs to take and sell all of their assets to recover money owed to the pipeline giant.

Stand.earth owes Enbridge money after losing a court case against changes to Line 9 a pipeline that runs between Ontario and Quebec.

A photo of documents posted online by the environmental group shows the amount owing is about $14,500.

The fees were awarded as part of an unsuccessful lawsuit the group launched against the National Energy Board and Enbridge, alleging inadequate consultation around the pipeline expansion project.

PARIS On October 18, as the rest of the art world in Paris ogled the art objects at the FIAC (Foire Internationale dArt Contemporain) art fairs grand opening, French-Luxembourg artist Deborah De Robertis was fighting in court. She had been charged with sexual exhibitionism and biting the jacket of a guard during the forceful stopping of her audacious happening Ma chatte, mon copyright (My Pussy, My Copyright) performed on September 24, without permission, in the La Joconde (Mona Lisa, c. 1506) room at the Louvre.

During the performance, De Robertis shouted through a megaphone, Mona Lisa, my pussy, my copyright, while revealing her vagina in front of the Mona Lisa.(In April, she had similarly exposed herself in front of the same painting, while a violinist played music, and was forced out of the museum.) For Ma chatte, mon copyright, she was held in jail for two days before a judge ordered her to stand trial this past Wednesday. 

De Robertis was acquitted of the sexual exhibitionism charge. It was understood she was solely practicing pungent performance art. Her sexual provocations question the place of women artists in art history and are part of a larger tradition of performance art, including that of Valie Export (whose Action Pants: Genital Panic (1969) piece inspired the Ma chatte, mon copyright performance),...

80-Foot Kraken on Old WWII Ship Becomes Artificial Reef in the British Virgin Islands "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

BVI Art Reef - Artificial Reef in the Virgin Islands

Photo: Owen Buggy

With more and more natural reefs dying due to climate change, people are increasingly turning to artificial reefs to provide safe ecosystems for aquatic life. And while we've seen everything from subway cars to underwater sculptures used for this purpose, nothing is quite as evocative as the BVI Art Reef.

Structured to promote the growth of transplanted coral, the artificial reef is composed of a WWII fuel barge topped by an elaborate 80-foot mesh kraken. Named the Kodiak Queen, the BVI Art Reef is also open to divers, as well as marine scientists and local students from the British Virgin Islands. The ship, which is one of five that fought at Pearl Habor, was set to be scrapped before photographer Owen Buggy discovered its historical significance and brought this unique idea to Sir Richard Branson, who lives on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands.

After years of careful research and planning to transform the warship into a place that would attract divers and also cultivate a healthy ecosystem, the Kodiak Queen was sunk into the Caribbean Sea in April 2017. BVI Art Reef united Branson's nonprofit Unite B.V.I., artist group Secret Samurai Productions, social justice entrepreneurial group Maverick1000, and ocean education nonprofit Beneath the Waves, in the hopes of raising awareness about environmental issues facing the ocean and inspiring people to come up with positive solutions for change.

Too cute, too functional, too awesome!

Do check out Jaime Costiglio's post with lots more photos and details on how she used 1x12s for the desk and shelf (instead of the project panel) and added the pegboard back.

Plans follow, enjoy and share!

Monumentally Detailed Pen Drawings That Combine Real and Imagined Landscapes by Olivia Kemp "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

British artist Olivia Kemp creates large-scale drawings that combine observational studies made in Norway, Italy, and Scotland with fantastical places that exist only in her imagination. Her pen and ink works contain dense villages of twisting tree houses within forests and log cabins sprinkled through out private islands, each appearing isolated from modern civilization.

I draw in order to make sense of landscape but also to construct and remodel it, explains Kemp in her artist statement. I build worlds and imaginary places that grow out of a need to interpret the sites that I have known, expanding and developing them across a page. This encompasses everything, from the visions of a grand landscape right down to the details of the land, the plants and creatures that may inhabit it.

When creating her meticulous works Kemp notes that she often falls into a trance-like state, the final result surprising even herself. New works, including the 6-foot-long Archipelago, are currently on view in her solo exhibition at Browse&Darby in London through November 3, 2017. You can see more of the artists work on her website and Instagram. (via Hi Fructose)

Gadhafi lynched by U.S.-NATO "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Gadhafi lynched by U.S.-NATO:







Gadhafi, 69, was there directing resistance fighters who have defended the country against an imperialist-engineered civil war and bombing campaign. The war has resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of Libyans and other foreign nationals. The Libyan state and its supporters have heroically held out for eight months and are still waging a struggle to reverse the counterrevolution financed and coordinated by the U.S.-NATO governments.

Just two days prior to Gadhafis assassination, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was in Libya, meeting with the rebel National Transitional Council regime and calling for his capture and killing. There have been several attempts on Gadhafis life since the beginning of the March 19 bombing campaign. Gadhafis son and three grandchildren were killed in one of them, when their residence came under attack by imperialist warplanes. It has been reported that another one of Gadhafis sons, Motassim, was captured and executed, purportedly by the NTC rebels, on Oct. 20.

Stories reported by the NTC spokesperson illustrated the inherently dishonest character of the U.S.-NATO rebels. They initially said Gadhafi was killed in a crossfire involving loyalist forces and the NTC rebels. However, this fabrication quickly evaporated when a video shot by someone in the lynch mob showed that Gadhafi was alive when apprehended and extrajudicially killed.

Drywall Finishing Levels & More Texture Talk "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

You guys are BLOWING MY DANG MIND with your comments on yesterdays post about drywall texture. So I thought it would be a good idea to do some more research so we can compare better notes.

Heres what I learned, there are 5 different levels of drywall finishing, and there seems to be a lot of variation on how to define the final 2 levels.

Level 0 | Unfinished: The drywall is hung with no finish work at all.

Level 1 | Unfinished: is when you put the drywall tape in the joint compound along the seams. Its ok to have it be rough and have tool marks.

Level 2 | Unfinished: is when you skim a thin coat of joint compound over the tape and screws. This just has a thin coat of compound over the tape and screws. There is usually no sanding at this point and tool marks are still ok. FYI you can stop at this level if you plan on covering it with tile.

New Special Edition Of Fahrenheit 451 Must Be Heated To Be Read "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Mac Slavo

The newest edition of the book Fahrenheit 451 is going to be out soon, and ironically, it must be heated up to be read.

For those who havent read the book Fahrenheit 451, its coming highly recommended.  It tells the story of a dystopian society in which books are outlawed and burned by firemen to prevent citizens from reading them. It follows one firemans journey of following orders and questioning authority. Ray Bradburys iconic book was originally published in 1953 and will leave a permanent reminder tucked away in the mind as to why free speech should never, under any circumstances, be culled. Simon and Schusters website says this is what the book is about:

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden.

Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television family. But then he meets an eccentric young neighbor, Clarisse, who introduces him to a past where people didnt live in fear and to a present where one sees the world through the ideas in books instead of the mindless chatter of television.

When Mildred attempts suicide and Clarisse suddenly disappears, Montag begins to question everything he has ever known. He starts h...

Fight Against GE Trees Named One of 30 Ways Campaigners Changed Aotearoa For The Better "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The Spin Off, a New Zealand-based site covering pop culture, sport, politics and social life through features, criticism, interviews, videos and podcasts recently acknowledged actions to stop genetically engineered trees in an article titled 30 ways campaigners changed Aotearoa for the better, despite nine years of National.

When campaigning for change, victories normally come in baby steps. Theres no one moment that marks a successful finale; no climactic end-of-movie scene. Its often only in hindsight, many years after the fact, that we see cumulative victory. Were often also legitimately hesitant to spend much time in celebration mode when there are so many struggling, and so many issues urgently threatening our environment and people, writes peace activist Jesse Anne Dennis.

This week, whether we have a new government, or have three more years of National with a NZ First flavour, its a good time to reflect on what we have collectively achieved for Aotearoa despite nine years of a National Government.

In August this year, The Ministry for Primary Industries backtracked on a draft National Environmental Standards clause that would have overridden council control of GE organisms released in their regions, after 16,000 people said no to GE trees in their submissions.

Those efforts were spearheaded by partnering organization GE Free NZ, which has lead the fight against genetically engineered trees in New Zealand.

These Specific Techniques Allow You To Control Your Dreams "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By April McCarthy

New research at the University of Adelaide has found that a specific combination of techniques will increase peoples chances of having lucid dreams, in which the dreamer is aware theyre dreaming while its still happening and can control the experience.

Dreams have fascinated philosophers for thousands of years, but only recently have dreams been subjected to empirical research and concentrated scientific study. Chances are that youve often found yourself puzzling over the mysterious content of a dream, or perhaps youve wondered why you dream at all.

Although many techniques exist for inducing lucid dreams, previous studies have reported low success rates, preventing researchers from being able to study the potential benefits and applications of lucid dreaming.

Although anecdotal reports of people awakening inside a dream have been around for centuries and over 50 percent of people report having at least one such experience in their lifetime, the first rigorous study of the phenomenon was only conducted in the last century.

Dr Denholm Aspys research in the University of Adelaides School of Psychology is aimed at addressing this problem and developing more effective lucid dream induction techniques.

US Urging Airlines to Ban Cameras in Checked Bags "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The U.S. government is urging airlines around the world to ban cameras, laptops, and other large personal electronic devices from checked luggage, citing the risk of batteries causing catastrophic fires.

The Chicago Tribune reports that the recommendation was made in a paper that was recently filed with the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an agency thats part of the U.N.

The FAA conducted tests that involved placing a heater against a fully-charged laptops lithium-ion battery, causing the batterys temperature to continually rise. The agency found that overheating batteries and aerosol cans in close proximity to one another can cause fires and explosions in less than a minute events that could bring down a passenger plane.

Lithium-ion batteries are used in cameras and photo equipment.

[I]t was concluded that if a [portable electronic device] is packed in a suitcase with an aerosol can and a thermal runaway event occurs, there is the potential for an aerosol can explosion, the FAA writes. The explosion itself may or may not be strong enough to structurally damage the aircraft, but in a Class C cargo compartment it will most likely compromise the Halon fire suppression system []

The fire suppression system of the aircraft is then compromised, which could lead to the loss of the aircraft.

Batteries packed with other permitted items such as rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, and nail polish remover also caused large fires. These fires can burn up to 1,100 F (594 C), close to the melting point of aircraft aluminum, and are responsible for 3 cargo jet crashes and 4 pilot deaths since 2006, the Associated Press says.

The 1960s Photographer Who Documented the Peace Sign as a Political Symbol "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Jim Marshall: PeaceJim Marshall, New York, NY (1963) (from Jim Marshall: Peace, Jim Marshall Photography LLC)

Between 1961 and 1968, photographer Jim Marshall followed the spread of the peace sign. Designed in 1958 by Gerald Holtom for the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, its subsequent adoption by the American Student Peace Union helped make the peace sign a symbol of 1960s Vietnam protests. Holtom was inspired by the N and D semaphore flag signals standing for nuclear disarmament and also by his own anguish at the world. As he described in a letter to activist and Peace News editor Hugh Brock, he was in despair. Deep despair. I drew myself: the representative of an individual in despair, with hands palm outstretched outwards and downwards in the manner of Goyas peasant before the firing squad.

Jim Marshall: PeaceCover of Jim Marshall: Peace (courtesy Reel Art Press)

Marshall photographed the signs evolving symbolism of peace and love, tagged on New York City subway advertisements, chalked on sidewalks, spray painted on walls, stuck on car windows, worn on buttons at rallies, scrawled on guitar cases, and suspended on necklaces. However, Marshall, best known as a prolific photog...

Im fascinated by Hong Kong, and not just for its layers of intriguing history (depicted beautifully in Louise Hawsons book, 52 Suburbs around the world), but also for its world-famous culinary offerings that I can only dream of tasting. Ive found a great new cookbook that can stand in as a substitute for a plane ticket in the meantime, though! Jeremy Pang and Adrienne Katz Kennedy, both of Londons School of Wok cooking school, have written Hong Kong Diner, which provides recipes for some of Hong Kongs most iconic dishes. These Black Pepper Glazed Short Rib Bao are from just one of those recipes.

New Digital Archive Puts Online 4,000 Historic Images of Rome: The Eternal City from the 16th to 20th Centuries "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The poet Tibullus first described Rome as "The Eternal City" in the first century BC, and that evocative nickname has stuck over the thousands of years since. Or rather, he would have called it "Urbs Aeterna," which for Italian-speakers would have been "La Citt Eterna," but regardless of which language you prefer it in, it throws down a daunting challenge before any historian of Rome. Each scholar has had to find their own way of approaching such a historically formidable place, and few have built up such a robust visual record as Rodolfo Lanciani, 4000 items from whose collection became available to view online this year, thanks to Stanford Libraries.

As an "archaeologist, professor of topography, and secretary of the Archaeological Commission," says the collection's about page, Lanciani, "was a pioneer in the systematic, modern study of the city of Rome."




Having lived from 1845 to 1929 with a long and fruitful career to match, he "collected a vast archive of his own notes and manuscripts, as well as works by others including rare prints and original drawings by artists and architects stretching back to the sixteenth century." After he died, his whole library found a buyer in the Istituto Nazionale di Archeologia e Storia dellArte (INASA), which made it available to researchers...

Why Do Dogs Love Sniffing Butts? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Nose-to-butt may seem like an odd way to say, How do you do? but its a far more practical greeting than a handshake for dogs, at least.

Pet owners have long wondered why dogs sniff butts, but this mysterious behavior is not as strange as it may seem. There is no better way for a dog to get to know her fellow canine than by using the most powerful tool at her disposal: that cold, wet nose.

A dogs nose contains nearly 300 million scent receptors, compared to a humans 5 million. In addition, the part of a dogs brain that processes smell is 40 times greater than ours. One quick sniff and a pup can learn an awful lot about her new friend (or enemy).

Dogs gather a lot of information about the world around them from their noses, Dr. Elizabeth Stelow, chief of animal behavior services at the University of California, Davis, told The Dodo. So, when they meet, smelling is a great way to find out more about the other dog.

Like a secret language, dogs can communicate through scent. Their powerful sense of smell helps them to interpret their surroundings and read different chemical messages left by other dogs.

This is one reason most male (and some female) dogs spend much of their time on walks urine marking in different locations they send signals about having been there, Stelow said. Its also why they scratch the ground after defecating (they have scent glands on the bottoms of their feet). The glands on the paws secrete pheromones, similar to the pair of scent glands on their butt, so when your dog scrapes the dirt, she is leaving olfactory clues for the next animal who happens to come along.   

Pet owners concerned that their dog is picking up some unsavory scents when performing this intimate behavior can rest easy. Dog...

Azuki Tiny Hedgehog Goes Camping

You may or may not know Azuki: the Insta-famous, Japanese pygmy hedgehog. If you dont, allow us to introduce you. Azuki is a happy-go-lucky kind of guy. He likes apples, massages, and hot baths, and up until recently, led a cozy life indoors with his human. All of the naps on soft blankets, the daily photoshoots, or time spent with his sister Uni (@uni_desu) just werent the same any more. Even his collection of miniature hats, or his custom-built hedgehog nest-house couldnt satisfy. Something was missing; he longed for more. So, deciding it was time for an adventure, he packed his tiny bags and went campingand hes never been happier.

Equipped with his own tiny tent, table and chair set, a barbecue, and even a kayak, Azuki had everything he needed to face the great outdoors. Lucky for us, his human brought a camera and kept an Instagram photo-diary to document his adventures. In one shot, depicting a scenic woodland picnic, Azuki writes, lunch in nature feels better than usual. In another, reclining in his camp chair and marveling at the sky, he claims, the stars [were] very beautiful [at] night.

With his wanderlust appeased, Azuki has now returned home in time for Halloween where hes been busy preparing for the festivities. You can keep up to date with Azuki's adorable adventures on Instagram.

How an Artists Activism Nurtured His Painting "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Peter Krashes, Empty Mics (2008) oil on linen, 63 x 84 inches (courtesy of the James Gallery, CUNY)

Peter Krashess paintings have often drawn on distinctly personal material: flight patterns circling his parents house, intimate portraits of his husband (the artist Oliver Herring) or Krashess own body undergoing physical therapy. In past bodies of work, he has utilized devices such as a distorting mirror, a camera obscura, panoramic lenses, shutters speeds, and strobes to create perceptual experiences that parallel the psychological disturbances, bafflement and ambiguities of his subjects. These devices have also inspired a variety of ways to apply paint to canvas: fast, slippery swooshes, choppy prismatic distortions, or spinning centrifugal wheels all figure into Krashess markmaking strategies. And, by incorporating these varied techniques, Krashes reinvigorates what have been his essential terrain: portrait, still life, and landscape genres.

Sick Puppy Found On Streets Of Tanzania Finds Best New Home In Germany "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Ava was sick so sick that Ismael Mungaya was sure the tiny puppy wouldnt survive.

In December last year, a teacher working in Arusha, Tanzania, found Ava wandering the streets, searching for food. She was dangerously skinny, and mango flies a type of parasite had burrowed into the puppys flesh. Ava also had an open wound on her neck.

Wanting to help Ava, the teacher reached out to Mungaya, one of the few people in the area who rescues and rehabilitates street dogs.

When she brought Ava to me, I was shocked and worried that Ava was not going to make it, Mungaya told The Dodo. She smelled really bad and she had mango flies. Honestly, I didn't even know there was a dog disease known as mango flies.

But Mungaya refused to give up on the little puppy. He brought Ava to the home he shares with his parents (and where he runs a small shelter for other rescued street dogs), and asked a vet to visit as quickly as possible.

Mostly, he loves to pop them with his paws always supervised, of course, so they won't wind up in his sweet little tummy.

Myers says that her dog's second-most preferred balloon-related activity is "bopping them in the air with his nose."

"But as soon as it's on the ground he pops them," she adds. "It's his favorite thing in the world."

Because Boyd loves balloons, and Myers loves Boyd, she always keeps some balloons on hand "for bop and pop time for Boyd, which is anytime we want really," Myers says.

Im most excited about the wealth of information that Ive learned, sharing that information with confidence to those who seek it, and making changes in Central Florida to improve birth outcomes. ~ Helen Scott, ICAN of Central Florida

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I have always been passionate about human rights and wanted to be an advocate for those whose voices are usually ignored. I was preparing for a career in civil rights law when I became pregnant with my first baby, and those plans were put on hold. My spouse and I now have 4 children who have all had very different births. Im extremely fortunate to be able to stay home with my children and homeschool my oldest. Im also feeling grateful for the opportunity to begin the most important work of advocacy with ICAN.

What led you to join ICAN?

A friend told me about ICAN after my first child was born via cesarean in 2008. I avoided going and had a VBAC without much support with my second child. I decided to attend an ICAN meeting when I became pregnant with my third child to seek resources and better support.

How do you share ICAN as an organization with others?

I wish people knew that ICAN is not a VBAC club, that we are made up of people with diverse stories and wishes for birth, and that our goal at ICAN is to empower parents to have the kind of birth they want, no matter how that looks. My strongest belief about cesarean/VBAC awareness is that there are pros and cons to cesarean and VBAC, and parents need to know what all of them are...

BREAKING: Elephants Will Never Have To Perform In New York Ever Again "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Circus elephants are rapidly becoming a thing of the past, thanks to a new ban just signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

The use of elephants in these types of settings is dangerous to their health and potentially abusive, Governor Cuomo said in a statement after signing the Elephant Protection Act into law this week. The Elephant Protection Act furthers this administrations efforts to fight animal cruelty, and create a stronger, more humane New York.

The ban, which will come into full effect in two years, bans elephants from being forced to perform in not just circuses, but also any kind of parade, carnival or trade show. This comes just a few months after the New York City Council banned using any kind of exotic animal in circus shows within the city limits. And earlier this year, the long-running Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus put on its last show ever.

Emails Reveal Bill Clinton Met With Vladimir Putin Just Before Uranium One Deal "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

putin

If President Trump or anyone even remotely close to his presidency, including his best friend from 2nd grade that he hadnt seen in 40 years, sought to meet with key Russian nuclear officials in Moscow just months before the federal government approved a very controversial deal handing Vladimir Putin 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, despite an ongoing investigation into Russian fraud, bribery, extortion and money laundering, it would be the only story played on a 24 x 7 loop on CNN and MSNBC.

Ironically, that is exactly what new emails dug up by The Hill show that Bill Clinton did in June 2010, just months before the Uranium One deal was approved by a committee on which his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sat. Oh, and did we mention that Bills Clinton Foundation just happened to collect millions of dollars in bribes donations from Russian sources and Uranium One shareholders shortly after his Moscow meetings?

Emails Reveal Bill Clinton Met With Vladimir Putin Just Before Uranium One Deal "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

If President Trump or anyone even remotely close to his presidency, including his best friend from 2nd grade that he hadnt seen in 40 years, sought to meet with key Russian nuclear officials in Moscow just months before the federal government approved a very controversial deal handing Vladimir Putin 20% of U.S. uranium reserves, despite an ongoing investigation into Russian fraud, bribery, extortion and money laundering, it would be the only story played on a 24 x 7 loop on CNN and MSNBC.

Ironically, that is exactly what new emails dug up by The Hill show that Bill Clinton did in June 2010, just months before the Uranium One deal was approved by a committee on which his wife, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, sat. Oh, and did we mention that Bills Clinton Foundation just happened to collect millions of dollars in bribes donations from Russian sources and Uranium One shareholders shortly after his Moscow meetings?

Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatoms board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late...

Speaker Bates, Council Delegate Nathaniel Brown (Chilchinbeto, Dennehotso, Kayenta), and Council Delegate Steven Begay (Coyote Canyon, Mexican Springs, Naschitti, Tohatchi, Bahastlaa) walked with Grandma Emma as she made her way into Window Rock on Thursday morning, after beginning her journey on Wednesday from the city of Gallup to raise awareness for domestic violence.

The group arrived to the Council Chamber just before noon on Thursday, where Council members, staff, local media, and others welcomed them.

Performa 17 is Inspired by the Anarchic, Restlessly Inventive Spirit of Dada "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Wangechi Mutu in Nairobi preparing for Performa 17 (photo by Andrew Dru Mungai, courtesy the artist)

When Dadaism began, it was primarily a response to World War I, to depressing nationalism and audacious capitalism. Defying the falsely perceived rationality of those in power, Dada artists used deliberate, playful absurdity in their work as a kind of of radical resistance against the bourgeois, the warmongers, the political right. It takes a good deal of solipsistic logic to convince oneself that hubris and classism and war are reasonable, and Dadaists sought to dismantle it. Through wild, seemingly capricious abstraction, they became purveyors of a particularly calculated criticism.

Dadaism is the historical anchor of the Performa 17 Biennial, which runs from November 1-19 at 32 venues around the city. This years historical anchor is inspired by Pierre Restanys 1961 exhibition, 40 au-dessus de Dada (40 Degrees above Dada), which sought to re-examine Dada not as a purely nihilistic movement, but one that was deeply poetic and true to its form adaptable to shifting times. Over a century after its origins, the commissioned works at Performa 17 will explore the movement again, this time in the midst of a dismal dystopia as erratic and ludicrous as Dadaism itself. (Yoko Ono, a Fluxus Dadaist in her own right, will be honored at the opening night gala, along with Performa board member Wendy Fisher.)

Billie Joe Armstrong: I Once Had a Punk Phase "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

BERKELEY, Calif Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer of famed rock band Green Day, claims he once had a brief punk phase in the early nineties.

Memes flooded Twitter after Armstrong said that for a brief time he was, really into The Misfits and even dyed his hair blond in a recent interview.

It was right before we signed to Reprise Records. We released a couple albums that no one ever talks about, but thankfully we were able to get some exposure. I look at those pictures and just feel so silly, said Armstrong. I had this awful haircut and ripped up jeans. And I remember being really upset when I got the news GG Allin died. I cried for days.

Throughout his storied career with Green Day, Armstrong, the makeup entrepreneur, has sold more than 85 million records worldwide and won five Grammy Awards. The frontmans claim sparked much debate on social media where users quickly found old photos of Armstrong from his so-called punk phase.

Related:

Wow, yeah I guess this is what you might consider punk if your parents were Hot Topic mannequins and you were born inside a mall food court, said one user who reportedly still argues about who is punk or not online.

Friends of Armstrong say he still struggles with his punk phase and, although he relapses from time to time, he always recovers.

I thought it was great when they came back and did a secret show at Gilman, said Green Day superfan Jake Smith. Kinda a bummer they decided to do a full rendition of their Broadway show instead of just playing songs though.

Women banned from menstruating with blue liquid "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

For decades, the pen industry has been using women as plentiful source of blue ink; with a typical ratio, of one menstruation to a thousand ballpoints. Sadly Bodyform sanitary towels are insisting that ladies abandon their traditional blue hue for an unconvincing red, just like Tony Blair.

As we now know, human female DNA has 98% in common with cuttlefish both of whom are capable of releasing cephalopod ink, while keeping a budgerigar amused. Scientists and publicans have observed that the average woman will derive her vivid blue excreta from drinking up to four pints of blue curacao a day, or exchanging bodily fluids with royalty.

Blue menstruation can often be seen as one of the last taboo areas, despite Picasso using at as painting medium (1901-1904). More recent application for blues have included coolant, anti-freeze and Muddy Waters back catalogue.

For many woman there will be a period of adjustment, adjusting their period. Now all adverts will be required to show realistic menstruation, with men looking confused; horrified and without a jot of sympathy; however advertising executives insist the new adverts are spot on.

This year, Carolee Schneemann received the Venice Biennales Golden Lion Award. She is also the subject of a major retrospective, Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting, which will travel from the Museum der Moderne Salzburg to open at MoMA PS1 on October 22 a level of recognition for which she has waited five decades.

In Schneemanns provocative paintings, sculptures, installations, performances, films, and videos, serendipity often plays a crucial role, interceding as an intermediary to lifes bothersome snags. In fact, serendipity courses through her entire career. A suspension from Bard College for painting herself nude (despite permission to pose nude for male students) seeded her sense of female empowerment. She went on to use her body as a medium to spring the female form from its frame, and to pursue explicit expressions of female sexuality. If her physical body was central to her project, it also often eclipsed her larger body of work. Hugely significant innovations, born or sired by chance, are now becoming more visible as the breadth of her legacy is acknowledged. At a Huguenot inn near her home in upstate New York, Schneemann spoke with Joyce Beckenstein about her early struggles for recognition, the sensuous connections between the beautiful and the grotesque, and her enduring kinship with cats.

Joyce Beckenstein: What was going through your mind when you found out youd received the Golden Lion award?

Carolee Schneemann: I was incredulous! I first thought it was a mistake; I didnt understand what it was until people starting writing me. Now Im an archivist, an organizer, and I have to tell myself that this new confluence is a kind of work.

When it comes to creating art, getting started is often the hardest part. Its made a little easier, however, when youve got thousands of people doing it at the same time. Weve seen how daily and monthly photography projects can stretch your imagination and bring forth new and exciting developments in your work. But if drawing is more your style, weve got the perfect creative challenge to inspire daily art-making: Inktober. This annual event takes place every year in October, inviting people from all around the world to participate.

What is Inktober?

Inktober dates back nearly a decade. Illustrator Jake Parker created it in 2009 as a way to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. The premise is simple: each day in October, make a drawing in ink and share it online using the hashtag #Inktober. Starting in 2016, Inktober has had an official prompt list with words to inspire your daily routine. Theyre specific, but not overly so that everyones drawings will look the same; theres a lot of room for interpretation.

Here are the Inktober prompts for 2017:

Inktober is certainly a commitment, but there is some wiggle...

How the Elite Dominate the World Part 3: 90% of What You Watch on Television Is Controlled by Just 6 Giant Corporations "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"



(Michael SnyderHow much is your view of the world shaped by what you see on television? On average, Americans spend more than 150 hours watching television every month, and it is called programming for a reason. If you allow anyone to pour ideas and information into your mind for five hours a day, it is going to change how you look at reality. Everyone has an agenda, and every single news program, television show and movie is trying to alter your views. Sadly, our society has become absolutely addicted to media, and the mainstream media is completely dominated by the elite. In fact, about 90 percent of the programming that comes through your television is controlled by just 6 gigantic media corporations. Most of us are willingly plugging ourselves into this propaganda matrix that is completely dominated by the elite for several hours each day, and that gives them an enormous amount of power over the rest of us.

How Positive Affirmations May Not Be So Positive "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Using Positive Affirmations properly is a really amazing life transforming tool. The concept of repeating positive and good language can help focus on what you want rather than what you dont want, which in turn affects the results in your life to getting what you want!

However if used incorrectly, they can cause more damage. Studies have shown that when you do repeat a statement over and over again, you will start to believe it and in turn developing old negative beliefs into new ones. But when it comes to affirming something about your life on a daily basis that you may really internally not believe, it can cause worse damage.

 

Examples:

If you are waking up and you are really not looking forward to the day and so something you really dont feel motivated for. If you say:

I am so confident to do this today but you feel > Im so scared to do this today I am not ready at all and I dont feel good.
I am so excited for today but you feel > I hate this job I want to quit.
I am loved but you feel > I feel so empty and lonely.
Im so happy > Im so upset about this situation I really dont know what to do with it.

 

Why Its Dangerous

After years of using positive affirmations myself and studying of how our words and language can affect our lives, it wasnt until recently when undergoing NLP Practitioner Training that I realized my Positive Affirmations were not motivating me at all and were actually causing me conflicting doubt. Making a statement over an underlying issue can cause more damage and anxiety.

 

IF you are already confident and believe you are, to use a statement like Im confident today! and you feel so good and believe it when you say it, this is an amazing boost. But if you really dont feel confident, to say that can cause even more doubt.

This is how to actually create affirming statements

To create powerful affirmations that empower you to feel good and move you forward, the first step is to use affirmations in MOTION.

Today I will do my best, but I will not stress over things I cant control.
I am moving towards more love and expressing more love.

The Challenges of 2017 Trumps fault? Russias fault? Maybe its Saturns fault! AstralHarmony.com, Saturn in the Gandanta "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

My favorite image from this article.

Im not always paying attention to astrological things, or (what seem to be) Eastern India terms, like gandanta, but this one popped out of somewhere and Im more interested in what it is saying about the transformations occurring in this year, and particularly the period of October 14-26, 2017. Ill highlight a couple things that stuck out for me.

Its Shanivaar, the day of Saturn (Shani) who requires some extra attention now as he transits in the nakshatra gandanta between sidereal Scorpio and Sagittarius for most of 2017. The gandanta (gand-knot and anta-end) refers to a karmic knot or transformational point between a water and fire sign Planets and chart points placed here reflect the eruption of many karmic problems, which on the plus side offer the potential for tremendous soul growth.

The most difficult of all three gandanta zones is this one between Scorpio and Sagittarius In other words, the war between the light and dark reaches a climax in this zodiacal section Saturn as Lord of Karma is the planet of fated events, disease, perversity, oppression, calamity, psychological limitations, abuse, bad luck, pain, suffering and death Saturn i...

Lancaster Against Pipelines and Many Others Inspired by the Chapel 23 "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Protest rally set in support of Sisters Chapel

Dear Friend, October 18, 2017

RE: Atlantic Sunrise Pipeline in South Central Pennsylvania

On Monday, twenty-three courageous members of our movement were arrested in front of an excavator on land belonging to the Adorers of the Blood of Christ in West Hempfield Township, in Lancaster County, PA. Those arrested ranged in age from 16 to 86, and included three pastors. (They are now the Chapel 23.)

Their love of this land, their willing sacrifice, and their inspiring poise declared that our work is driven by something deeper than Williamss greed and gasoline. The arrested have touched our hearts, taught us the power of peaceful resistance, and strengthened our resolve more than ever.

An incredible outpouring of unity and support continues today as the Chapel 23 recover. Hundreds of thousands of people have viewed our live feed videos online, with 100,000 viewing our video of the arrests; our Facebook page received more than 500 new followers; the events were reported by _NBC_, _Democracy Now_, and _Al Jazeera, _ as well as most local media outlets and practically every Catholic publication there is.

And were just getting started! In the days ahead, well look back on the Chapel 23 as a turning point in our movement. Which is precisely Williams worst fear.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

_SO, WHATS NEXT?_. COME OUT THIS SATURDAY, OCTOBER 21, FOR A DAY OF CELEBRATION AND ACTION!

AT 10:30 AM, WELL MEET AGAIN AT THE SISTERS CHAPEL AT 3939 LAUREL RUN IN COLUMBIA, PA 17512. First, well celebrate that site of Sacred Resistance with a spirited rally. Second, weve planned another creative Mass Action to halt pipeline construction for another day in Lancaster County.

Come ready to sing, to celebrate the power of communities rising, and to shut down some heavy equipment. There will be plenty of roles to play across the full range of risks levels, most being entirely non-arrestable.

Note: Immediately _preceding_ LAPs 10:30 gathering, the Lancaster Friends Quaker Meeting will be hosting a service of quiet reflection at the Chapel at 9:30 AM. All who wish to attend are welcome!

Activists from the Chinatown Art Brigade (CAB) and other local art and anti-gentrification groups protested against Omer Fasts exhibition at James Cohan Gallerys Chinatown space. CAB described August, which requires visitors to walk through a constructed caricature of a derelict, run-down Chinatown business, as a racist aggression towards the community.

Pyotr Pavlensky was arrested and charged with destruction of property after setting fire to a Bank of France branch in Paris. The dissident artist and his partner, Oksana Shalygina, were granted political asylum in France earlier this year. The pair fled Russia following accusations of sexual assault, a charge they maintain is politically motivated. Pavlensky, who is best known for nailing his scrotum to the ground in Moscows Red Square, was detained by Russian authorities in November 2015 after setting fire to the entrance of the FSBs (Russian Federal Security Service) Moscow headquarters.

Mays open letter to EU citizens Remaining in UK is possibly guaranteed "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Theresa May has written an open letter to EU citizens who are currently resident in the UK, wherein she attempts to allay their fears about them being allowed to remain in Britain post Brexit.

The letter opens with a cordial What-ho, Johnny Foreigners before it goes on to set out what they can expect in the coming eighteen months.

The PM assures recipients that just as soon as she knows what the hell is likely to happen then they will be the first to know how Brexit will affect themdefinitelywell, likely as notor at least quite possibly anyway.

She sympathises with their worries, realising they feel uneasy and concerned about their future here, stating that right now she knows exactly how they feel, but insists that things will become a lot clearer as soon as the UK abandons its stupefying arrogance and accepts it has little or nothing to negotiate with. Or changes Government.  Or both.

The letter goes on to suggest that if, in the interim, EU citizens might wish buy a house or start a business in Britain, well then thats probably going to be not too risky unless it turns out, in the final analysis, to have been very risky indeed.

The last paragraph sums up: But taking everything into account, either one way or another, then Im sure that whatever happens, and with a bit of luck and a following wind, then things might just end up being hunky-dory for you and your family. Or worst case scenario? Well then you might have to go back to your country of birth. But would that really be quite so terrible? Indeed, I may be joining you.

The Philosophers Web, an Interactive Data Visualization Shows the Web of Influences Connecting Ancient & Modern Philosophers "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

How do we begin to read philosophy? Can we slide a book from the shelf, thumb through it casually, picking out the bits of wisdom that make sense?

Should we find a well-known important work, sit in a quiet study, read the preface, translators introduction, etc

How soon we discover we know less about the book than when we started.

We go wandering, lose ourselves in secondary sources, glosses, footnotes, comments sections, Wikipedia articles. The important book remains unread.




In-between these two extremes are a variety of approaches that work well for many an autodidact. When data scientist Grant Louis Oliveira decided he wanted to undertake a self-guided course of study to more rigorously explore my ideas, he began with the honest admission, I find the world of philosophy a bit impenetrable.

Where some of us might make an outline, a spreadsheet, or a humble reading list, Oliveira created a complex social network visualization of a history of philosophy to act as his guide.

What I imagined, he writes, is something like a tree arranged down a timeline. More influential philosophers would be bigger nodes, and the size of the lines between the nodes would perhaps be variable by strength of influence.

George Soros Transfers Billions to Open Society Foundations

George Soros, the billionaire hedge fund manager and a major Democratic donor, has given $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, one of the largest transfers of wealth ever made by a private donor to a single foundation.

The gift, made quietly over the past several years but disclosed only on Tuesday, has transformed Open Society into the second-biggest philanthropic organization in the United States, behind the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. It will also place Mr. Soros, a lightning rod for conservative critics, squarely in the middle of the social and political debates convulsing the country.

Founded by Mr. Soros more than 30 years ago, Open Society promotes democracy and human rights in more than 120 countries. In recent years, the organization has increased its attention on the United States, investing in programs to protect gays and lesbians and reduce abuses by the police.

The organization funded treatment centers during the 2014 Ebola outbreak, a center for Roma art and culture, and efforts to protect people in the United States from what it described as a national wave of hate incidents after the 2016 election. After that spike in hate crimes, Mr. Soros, 87, committed $10 million to preventing such violence.

Atheists Win Against TX Governor in Solstice Censorship Suit "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Bill of Rights

The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has prevailed in federal court against Texas Governor Greg Abbott, who ordered the removal of the FFRF's winter solstice Bill of Rights Nativity from the Texas Capitol in 2015, as FFRF reports. The Texas State Capitol has an open forum for holiday displays. The FFRF applied for the space, just like everyone else, and they were given a green light. Thats why FFRF put a secular Nativity with the part of Jesus played by the Bill of Rights, flanked by Founding Fathers Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and the Statue of Liberty.

The problem was that Governor Greg Abbott ordered the whole thing to be removed on December 22, 2015. He explained his opposition in a letter to John Sneed, the Executive Director of the State Preservation Board: First, far from promoting morals and the general welfare, the exhibit deliberately mocks Christians and Christianity Second, the exhibit does not educate. According to the Freedom From Religion Foundations application, the purpose of the exhibit is to educate the public about the religious and nonreligious diversity within the State.

To the contrary, the exhibit promotes ignorance and falsehood insofar as it suggests that George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson worshipped (or would worship) the Bill of Rights in the place of Jesus, Abbott added. He gave a passage from George Washingtons prayer journal, which wasnt even written by George Washington, to illustrate his conclusion.

The FFRF filed a federal lawsuit against Abbott back in February of 2016: FFRFs federal lawsuit, filed in the Western District of Texas, Austin division, charges that Abbott and the other defendants violated the free speech, equal protection and due process rights of the organization.

Defendants have justified removal of the FFRFs exhibit by arguing the exhibits satirical tone rendered it offensive to some portion of the population. That is viewpoint discrimination, writes Sparks in a 24-page ruling. The court also held that a reasonable official in Governor Abbotts position would have known that removing the FFRFs display based on its viewpoint would violate the FFRFs First Amendment rights, thus the FFRF can sue Governor Abbott in his personal capacity. It is beyond debate the law prohibits viewpoint discrimination in a limited public forum, Sparks ruled.

This is a major victory of freedom of expression and opinion over censorship and discrimination.

U.S. House Excludes Atheists from Offering Invocations "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

US House Atheists

Last year, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sued U.S. House Chaplain Patrick Conroy, a Roman Catholic priest, for barring FFRF Co-President Dan Barker from delivering a secular guest invocation to the House because he does not believe in God. Barker and the FFRF sued Conroy, members of his staff and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan for discrimination against nonbelievers, who constitute one-fourth of the U.S. population.

The case began when U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., who represents Barker's district in Madison, Wis., requested that Barker give the opening invocation before the House. Barker met the requirements for being a guest chaplain even though those requirements, the lawsuit said, were inherently discriminatory against the non-religious and minority religions. He was rejected from delivering an invocation to Congress because he didnt follow one of the religions acceptable to the U.S. House.

Barker even submitted a draft of his speech, but he was still rejected: Not only did Barker provide all the required documentation but he also submitted a draft of his remarks after being told he must address a higher power. Barkers proposed remarks stated that there is no power higher than We, the People of these United States. Conroy, after delaying for months, officially rejected the request in January of 2016, noting in a letter that Barker had "announced his atheism publicly" and therefore was not a true "minister of the gospel" eligible for the honor of appearing in front of Congress.

U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer dismissed his lawsuit on October 11: To decide that Mr. Barker was discriminated against and should be permitted to address the House would be to disregard the Supreme Court precedent that permits legislative prayer, U.S. District Judge Rosemary M. Collyer wrote. She ruled that none of the defendants was ultimately responsible for that injury.

According to FFRF, the judge claimed that the chaplain was powerless to allow Barker to give the invocation due to House rules, yet also dismissed Barker's claim against the House itself. The decision fails to identify who, if not the House chaplain and the House itself, could be sued for implementing a rule excluding non-believers from participation.

Were deeply dismayed that atheists and other non-believers are being openly treated as second-class citizens, says FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor. Our government is not a theocracy, and it needs to stop acting like one.

Poll: Religion Does More Harm than Good "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Australia

The survey of more than 17,000 people across 23 countries by polling firm Ipsos found opinion is evenly divided about the influence that religion has in society. Forty-Nine percent of respondents across all countries agreed with the statement "religion does more harm in the world than good". That proportion in Australia is well above the international average. Actually, two in three Australians (63%) agreed with this statement.

"Australia is one of the more negative countries regarding the perceived harm that religion does," David Elliott from the Ipsos Social Research Institute said. Only Belgium (68 percent) had a higher proportion than Australia who agreed religion does more harm than good, while Germany and Spain were on par with Australia. Respondents from Japan, Russia and South Korea were the least likely to believe religion was harmful.

On the other hand, Australia had an above-average share who felt "completely comfortable" being around people with different religious beliefs to their own (84 percent). "While many of us do not have a positive view of religion, we are not translating this negativity to fear or dislike of individuals who have different beliefs to our own," Mr Elliot said. He added that Australians are among the more tolerant nations globally. This tolerance may reflect our multicultural society or maybe driven by beliefs that negative impacts of religion are more an issue globally than locally."

Another statement from the survey "my religion defines me as a person" was poorly positioned among the respondents in Australia. Only 27 per cent of respondents agreed with that statement. That was well below the share of Americans agreeing with the statement (49 percent) but higher than in Great Britain (23 percent). Japan had the lowest share who felt religion defines them as a person (14 percent).

Do religious people make better citizens? The international average agreeing that the religious make better citizens was 32 percent. In Australia, 25 percent agreed that religious people make "better citizens", a much lower share than in America (45 percent) and Russia (44 percent) and India (62 percent). One in six worldwide said that they "lose respect for people" after finding out that they are not religious. The share of Australian respondents sharing that sentiment was even smaller, about 12.5 percent.

Sebastian Kurz

[Kp update: this earlier Kp blog post provides some other Soros get outta here references.]

This one kind of popped out on FB somewhere, and led me to the original article. To me, this shows how many of the newer leaders of the planet are coming in very awake and aware. One step at a time, all of the old-paradigmers like Soros are being exposed, deposed, and banned from a\various parts of the world.

The worlds youngest leader, newly-elected Sebastian Kurz, has informed George Soros that his Open Society Foundation has 28 days to cease and desist operations in Austria or face legal action for attempting to undermine the democracy of the nation.

The situation has become critical, Kurz said. Soros is throwing everything he has behind his push for global control. Misinformation and media manipulation has already increased exponentially overnight. We have no room for complacency.

The specter of Soros is the greatest challenge humanity is facing in the world in 2017.

You Can be Good Without God, Most Americans Say "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

GodBlessAmerica

The Pew Research Centers study gave interesting answers on the question Is it necessary to believe in God to be moral? The results showed that more Americans than ever before believe that you dont need to believe in God to be moral and have good values. Actually, 56% of U.S. adults now say it is not necessary to believe in God to be moral and have good values. This is a significant increase compared to the 2011 results when about half (49%) of respondents expressed this view.

According to the Pew Research Center, this increase reflects the continued growth in the share of the population that has no religious affiliation, but it also is the result of changing attitudes among those who do identify with a religion, including white evangelical Protestants. Among religious nones, in 2017, 85% say belief in God is unnecessary for morality, up from 78% who said this in 2011.

God is not a prerequisite for good values and morality, Gregory Smith, Pews associate director of research, said in a post about the findings. [T]he publics increased rejection of the idea that belief in God is necessary for morality is due, in large part, to the spike in the share of Americans who are religious nones.'

The religious nones constituted 18% of the survey taken by the Pew Research Center  in 2011, which included the question about god and morality.  In the more recent 2017 study, the share of nones account for about one quarter (25%) but that is only part of the story. Attitudes about the necessity of belief in God for morality have also changed among those who do identify with a religion. Among all religiously affiliated adults, the share who says belief in God is unnecessary for morality ticked up modestly, from 42% in 2011 to 45% in 2017, says PWC.

The good news is that, today, every single religious demographic is more likely to say you dont need God to be good compared to six years ago. Even white evangelicals, who traditionally believe a relationship with God is crucial to morality, have budged. In 2011, one quarter of them (26 percent) said it was possible to be good without God, while now almost a third (32 percent) say so. Of course, most white evangelicals still say belief in God is necessary for morality, but the share who says belief in God is a necessary underpinning of being moral has declined from 72% to 65% in just six years, Smith writes.

Im Reinventing Mental Health Care by Putting Patients in Charge "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this piece for The Guardian, Joy Hibbins describes how her experiences of powerlessness as a mental health service user led her to start Suicide Crisis, a center that provides alternative approaches to mental health care.

A feeling of powerlessness dominated my experience of mental health services. And this feeling was at its worst when I was sectioned. Sectioning replicated aspects of the traumatic experience that initially caused my suicidal crisis. I felt trapped, captive and utterly out of control. I couldnt escape.

My experience of feeling disempowered when using mental health services is the reason we ensure our clients have a greater degree of control. They decide how often they see us, what kind of care they receive and when they are ready to leave us. Our male clients say they find this particularly helpful. They can feel especially vulnerable when they seek help; putting them in control helps to counteract this.

Heres Why I Wouldnt Use the Mental Health System "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In this piece for The Spinoff, Graham Panther, a consultant in Australias mental health system, speaks to some of the shortcomings of mainstream mental health support. He introduces a new project he is starting, The Big Feels Club, on online peer support network.

What many people dont realise is there isnt just one way of talking about crisis and distress. Theres certainly one dominant way: the diagnostic model, in which doctor knows best. But there are a hundred other ways of making sense of bewildering, distressing experiences. Existential therapy, Intentional Peer Support, humanistic psychology, you name it. Many of them are much more optimistic about the value of human distress as part of a good life. I didnt know about any of these for years, and I didnt learn about them from the mental health system, I learned about them from other people going through it.

Thats why I want to make it much easier for people to find their tribe. I want people to have access to more ways of thinking about their big, uncomfortable feelings, so they can find what works for them. I want to create a resource that Id actually want to use!

How Stoicism can Help us Deal With Depression "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Medical Xpress: Stoicism, an ancient philosophy based on the idea that the goal of life is to live in agreement with nature, can be helpful to those experiencing depression.

In all this, what these philosophers are reminding us is that to live in accord with nature is to recognize that even the most difficult of those we might run into in the course of a day could be someone like us someone perhaps struggling with their own malaise or malady.

Upon recognizing this, it is easier to be forgiving of those we disagree with. But more than that, perhaps, it makes it easier to be more forgiving of ourselves. It helps us recognize an important piece of suffering and of being human.

If Birdo Isnt a Woman, How Come Ive Been Threatening to Assault Her? "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

 

Theres a lot of debate in the video game world about Birdos gender identity. Birdo is described as male in some game manuals, female in others. Well, good news, Nintendo super fans! Im finally putting this debate to rest.

Ive found indisputable evidence concerning Birdos gender: Birdo is a woman because I keep threatening to assault her.

The first piece of evidence that Birdo is a girl came on June 22, 2016 when I tweeted at her I have something to put in that thing that might be a mouth!

Now Im not actually sure what that hole on Birdos face is, or whether or not I have something to put in it, but the fact remains: I tweeted a vaguely threatening sexual thing at Birdo which means she must be a woman. This is simply scientific fact.

These days it seems like were all starting to feel a little creaky in the knees. Remember when the kid from the Nevermind cover bought his first legal drink? Or when Space Jam turned 20? Its enough to make you want to just kick back and let the social security checks start rolling in.

But brace yourself, because this latest little milestone is sure to be the most devastating one yet. Remember that horrible car crash you were in? That was 30 years ago! Also you didnt survive the crash. Yep, youve been dead for 30 years!

Man, 30 years. Its like you cant even wrap your mind around it right? Spirit, I implore you, it is crucial that you wrap your mind around this.

30 years ago this very night you were coming home from the bar, cigarette burning between your fingers in hopes that the heat would help keep you awake. Swerving down ole break neck road, blaring Joshua Tree by U2. Im sure it feels like almost yesterday! But it wasnt yesterday. It was 30 years ago and you have lacked corporeal form ever since.

Only 80s kids will remember reading about the gruesome details in the following days newspaper. The speculations over whether it was a deer that caused you to swerve into that tree, the mysterious circumstances of your decapitated head being found nearly 100 yards from the scene of the crash, the rumors about your accident being a suicide because you had just broken up with your significant other. The whispers around town that your emotionally distant rich parents covered it up because your dad was running for public office. Its crazy to think about how your death is now old enough to rent a car!

Benzodiazepine Effects: Similarities With Childhood Trauma "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Benzodiazepines are a massive violation.

The expression that they are a rape of the mind, soul and body has been used for decades by campaigners in the UK for good reason.

The disabilities can start within weeks or even days for some. Personality changes occur and the body starts exhibiting side effects seldom attributed to the benzos, but more often than not, to stress, M.E., fibromyalgia or other virtually any other diagnosis. Effects can be severe causing loss of career, interpersonal relationships, violence, suicide and more contact with mental health services which, for some, has resulted in heinous labels, such as BPD or dependent personality disorder, and polydrugging.

The enormous and ever growing number of forums on social media for people damaged by both benzos and SSRI polydrugging bears out the truth that very many people are severely damaged by commonly trusted medications.

I turn now to the childhood abuse survivor community. Esther Rantzen is probably one of the few journalists in the country to have some in depth knowledge of these issues. She both established the helpline for victims of child abuse Childline and took up the cause of benzo victims who had written in to her TV programme Thats Life. Speaking in BBCs 2001 Panorama programme The Tranquilliser Trap she was clearly incensed that nothing had been done by governments or healthcare agencies to stop the benzodiazepine disaster.

These issues should absolutely be of priority for childhood abuse survivor charities in the UK. Survivors of childhood trauma who are also adversely affected by benzos need to be believed. Many sadly wont even know until its too late that symptoms, often categorized as stress from trauma, could in (some) cases be either partly or even entirely caused by benzos. For example, in my case, a deteriorating benzodiazepine induced brain injury that made me seem childlike was categorized as my inner child. When patients do disclose a benzodiazepine injury to their support networks in abuse survivor groups, it is imperative that they are believed. There also needs to be awareness that categorizing everything as somatisation is neither helpful nor safe. Again, many charity and patient groups from ME to thyroid charities are currently trying to raise awareness of the harms of the current medical paradigm, which far too often dismisses patients unseen illnesses as a psychiatric or psychological disorder.

Victims of severe childhood trauma have already been through far, far too much. Many find when they disclose abuse to GPs the first thing that happens is an instant prescription for an SSRI or benzodiazepine. It is worth noting here that a very small minority of people find themselves unable to walk and even wheel-chair bound after benzodiazepine discontinuation. Some even die. How can this level o...

America bracing itself for arrival of Hurricane Mitt "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

storm's a-coming...US citizens have been advised to batten down the hatches and prepare for the worst in advance of the possible arrival of Hurricane Mitt to the Washington area in the middle of next week. A state of emergency has already been declared in a number of US states, and public transport has been suspended and schools closed in advance of Mitts landfall. Observers have warned these precautions could remain in place for up to four years.

We predict a long-lasting depression if this particular shit storm sweeps into DC on Wednesday 7 November, said a spokesman for the National Hurricane Centre. Weve been tracking Hurricane Mitt for a while now and, aside from changing its course at will and some sudden veers to the right, we assumed it was just a lot of hot air that would blow itself out. But all of a sudden its here and its dangerous. If this thing hits land it could send America back to the nineteenth century.

Meteorologists have described Hurricane Mitt as a Frankenstorm as it brings together an unnatural combination of Mormonism and conservative fundamentalism, all exacerbated by a full moon. Citizens have been warned not to be lulled into a state of complacency by the storms warm front of caring for the poor and disadvantaged.

New York mayor Michael Bloomberg said people needed to start taking action immediately. Despite what you might have heard, this storm is showing a surprising lack of respect for the sanctity of human life. My advice to any American husband is to round up your kids and your four wives, stock up while you can on essentials like social security and health care, and head down into your nuclear bunker and wait for this thing to blow over.

Meanwhile, to prepare New York for the imminent arrival of the deadly Hurricane Sandy, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is using his vast personal fortune to issue every citizen with sacred Mormon underpants, which for a limited time only are available in brown.

All those messages reflected what Ive been going through internally as I faced one question: Will I pay income taxes this year? (for 2016)

I know people who do pay taxes, regularly, and I know people who do not pay taxes, and I know people who do assist those people in that (heres one).

I looked at both options (pay vs. not pay). A few months ago, I got that it was part of my path to actually pay this year (Ive not paid (nor had to pay) for several years, due to income level). But this year, I also looked at the not pay option, and there was a tad of merit in that....

The Films of Christopher Nolan Explored in a Sweeping 4-Hour Video Essay: Memento, The Dark Knight, Interstellar & More "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Cameron Beyl does not play by the rules when it comes to video essays. Instead of short, under-10 minute explorations weve come to expect from the ever-increasing coterie of YouTube essayists, Beyl, in his Directors Series on Vimeo, devotes hours to exploring the filmographies of some of cinemas great auteurs. Weve already introduced you in previous posts to his extended hagiographies of Stanley Kubrick, the Coen Brothers, David Fincher, and Paul Thomas Anderson.

Now comes his latest work, a multi-part exploration of Christopher Nolans oeuvre, covering his hardscrabble years all the way through his Hollywood blockbusters and ending with Interstellar. (This writer, having thought higher of Dunkirk than his previous works, will just have to wait a few years until the next chapter.)




In the video above, Beyl starts off with some prehistory about Christopher and his brother Jonathan, his early years making Super 8 movies, his time spent at University College London, and the very rare first films, Tarantella and Larceny, the single-gag short Doodlebug, and how that crew--including his lead actor Jeremy Theobald and his producer-soon-to-be-wife Emma Thomas--stayed with him through his $6000 debut feature Following and its thematic and stylistic cousin Memento, made for $4.5 million.

PMID:  Intern Med. 2017 Oct 11. Epub 2017 Oct 11. PMID: 29021453 Abstract Title:  Severe Alcoholic Hepatitis Effectively Treated with Vitamin E as an Add-on to Corticosteroids. Abstract:  A 49-year-old woman with a history of heavy alcohol drinking was admitted to our hospital due to jaundice and abdominal distention. A blood test showed leukophilia, mild hypoalbuminemia, hyperbilirubinemia, hepatobiliary injury and coagulopathy. Image studies showed an extremely enlarged fatty liver and splenomegaly. The Japan alcoholic hepatitis score and Maddrey's discriminant function were 10 and 54 points, respectively. We diagnosed her with severe alcoholic hepatitis and treated her with corticosteroids, but her liver function did not improve. We therefore administered the vitamin E product tochopheryl acetate (150 mg/day) as an add-on therapy, after which her leukophilia, liver enzymes and coagulopathy improved immediately.

Vitamin C and especially vitamin E may be useful in the repair and regeneration of oral hard and soft tissues in smokers. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Eur J Oral Sci. 2017 Oct 12. Epub 2017 Oct 12. PMID: 29024129 Abstract Title:  Efficacy of vitamins E and C for reversing the cytotoxic effects of nicotine and cotinine. Abstract:  Nicotine has adverse cellular and molecular effects on oral mucosa, bone, and teeth. Vitamin E (-tocopherol) and vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are biological antioxidants with positive effects on wound healing and bone formation. This in vitro study sought to assess the cytotoxic effects of different concentrations of nicotine and cotinine (a metabolite of nicotine) on MG-63 osteoblast-like cells and human gingival fibroblasts (HGFs) in the presence and absence of antioxidant vitamins E and C (separately and combined). Cell viability and proliferation were assessed using the methyl thiazol tetrazolium (MTT) assay. Cell migration was assessed using the scratch test, and expression of apoptosis-related genes was quantitatively analyzed using real-time PCR. Dose-dependent negative effects of nicotine on the morphology, viability, proliferation, and migration of MG-63 and HGF cells were statistically significantly greater than those of cotinine. Vitamin E (separately and combined with vitamin C) was statistically significantly more effective than vitamin C (at the concentration used in this study) at improving cell viability, proliferation, and migration, and at reducing apoptosis of cells exposed to nicotine or cotinine. Based on the positive results of this study, vitamin C and especially vitamin E (systemically and/or locally) may be useful in the repair and regeneration of oral hard and soft tissues in smokers.

If youre someone who is concerned with your safety, privacy or even just generally believe the bible, youre going to want to pay attention to this. The much-anticipated chipping of Americans has begun, and its as bad as you thought itd be. Its being offered (or rather pushed) by one company who thinks that theyre ushering in the future. Were not sure what kind of future theyre hoping to usher in, but theyre taking leaps and bounds.

This Wisconsin company has plans to expand and get the technology out to other companies for convenient implants to be used in companies, especially those with high-security levels where fraud is likely. These implants go in the hand and make it easier to get through doors and other security check points that would typically require some sort of ID or card.

The fun part comes in where they promise that these chips arent in any way GPS enabled and cant be used to read information, only hold information that you might need to use, like using multiple magnetic strips with the swipe of a hand. And they will no doubt notify us right away when they decide to GPS enable these chips because big brother never does anything underhanded and keeps it a secret.

Everything outside the locker room hasnt really affected me on the field. Last Sunday, more than 100 NFL players sat, took a knee or raised their fists during the National Anthem.

Russell Wilson took his performance to a new level, becoming the first player in NFL history to finish a season with at least 4,000 yards passing, 30 touchdown passes and 500 yards rushing. After claiming the starting role over Gerhart midway through last season, Robinson has established himself as a much better option in this situation, as well.

PMID:  Anticancer Res. 2017 02 ;37(2):465-473. PMID: 28179291 Abstract Title:  Synergistic Inhibitory Effect of Traditional Chinese Medicine Astragaloside IV and Curcumin on Tumor Growth and Angiogenesis in an Orthotopic Nude-Mouse Model of Human Hepatocellular Carcinoma. Abstract:  AIM: The aim of the present study was to investigate the efficacy of the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), astragaloside IV (AS-IV) and curcumin on tumor growth and angiogenesis in an orthotopic nude-mouse model of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We have previously shown the usefulness of orthotopic models of human cancer for evaluation of the efficacy of TCM.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Nude mice with orthotopic HepG2 HCC were treated with vehicle control (0.01 ml/g normal saline), cisplatinum (2 mg/kg), AS-IV (20 mg/kg), curcumin (100 mg/kg) or AS-IV plus curcumin (20 mg/kg + 100 mg/kg). Tumor inhibition in each group was evaluated by tumor weight at autopsy. The effect of AS-IV and curcumin on tumor angiogenesis was assessed by CD34 staining and expression of fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF2), matrix metalloproteinase 2 (MMP2), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), thrombosis-related factor tissue factor (TF) and coagulation factor VII (FVII), as well as microRNAs miR-122 and miR-221.RESULTS: AS-IV and curcumin alone and in combination significantly reduced mean tumor weight compared to vehicle control (p

Las Vegas Paiute Tribe Opens the Largest Marijuana Store on the Planet "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published October 20, 2017

LAS VEGAS On Monday, October 16, 2017, the Las Vegau Paiute Tribe opened the NuWu Cannabis Marketplace. The new retail establishment is being marketed as the Largest marijuana store on the planet in downtown Las Vegas, near the intersection of Main Street and Washington Avenue.

Built on a 31-acre plot of land, NuWu Cannabis Marketplace, is built on land-in trust property.

NuWu is a Paiute word that means the the people.

 

 

A manager at the dispensary said customers will pay the exact same amount in taxes, but the money will go to the tribe instead of the state. He said the money will go toward things like health services.

Plans call for the store to eventually stay open for 24 hours and the construction of a drive-through service for its customers.

Combination of astragaloside IV and ginsenoside Rg1 had a synergistic inhibition on autophagic injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biomed Pharmacother. 2017 May ;89:124-134. Epub 2017 Feb 20. PMID: 28219050 Abstract Title:  Synergism and mechanism of Astragaloside IV combined with Ginsenoside Rg1 against autophagic injury of PC12 cells induced by oxygen glucose deprivation/reoxygenation. Abstract:  The aim of this study was to explore the effect by which the combination of Astragaloside IV (AST IV) and Ginsenoside Rg1 (Rg1) resisted autophagic injury in PC12 cells induced by oxygen glucose deprivation/reoxygenation (OGD/R). We studied the nature of the interaction between AST IV and Rg1 that inhibited autophagy through the Isobologram method, and investigated the synergistic mechanism via the PI3K I/Akt/mTOR and PI3K III/Becline-1/Bcl-2 signaling pathways. Our results showed that, based on the 50% inhibiting concentration (IC50), AST IV combined with Rg1 at a 1:1 ratio resulted in a synergistic effect, whereas the combination of the two had an antagonistic effect on autophagy at ratios of 1:2 and 2:1. Meanwhile, AST IV and Rg1 alone increased cell survival and decreased lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) leakage induced by OGD/R, reduced autophagosomes and the LC3 II positive patch, down-regulated the LC3 II/LC3 I ratio and up-regulated the p62 protein; the 1:1 combination enhanced these effects. Mechanistic study showed that Rg1 and the 1:1 combination increased the phosphorylation of PI3K I, Akt and mTOR; the effects of the combination were greater than those of the drugs alone. AST IV and the 1:1 combination suppressed the expression of PI3K III and Becline-1, and the combination elevated Bcl-2 protein expression; the effects of the combination were better than those of the drugs alone. These results suggest that after 2 h-OGD followed by reoxygenation for 24h, PC12 cells suffer excessive autophagy and damage, which are blocked by AST IV or Rg1; moreover, the combination of AST IV and Rg1 at a 1:1 ratio of their IC50 concentrations has a synergistic inhibition on autophagic injury. The synergistic mechanism may be associated with the PI3K I/Akt/mTOR and PI3K III/Becline-1/Bcl-2 signaling pathways.

Astragaloside alleviates hepatic fibrosis by inhibiting PAR2 signalling expression. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cell Physiol Biochem. 2017 ;41(3):1156-1166. Epub 2017 Feb 28. PMID: 28245465 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside Alleviates Hepatic Fibrosis Function via PAR2 Signaling Pathway in Diabetic Rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND/AIMS: Astragaloside (AGS) extracted from radix astragalin (Huangqi) has been considered to be beneficial to liver diseases. In this study, we examined the role played by AGS in alleviating hepatic fibrosis function via protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR2) mechanisms. We hypothesized that AGS affects PAR2 signaling pathway thereby improving hepatic function in rats with hepatic fibrosis induced by carbon tetrachloride (CCl4). We further hypothesized that AGS attenuates impaired hepatic function evoked by CCl4 to a greater degree in diabetic animals.METHODS: ELISA and Western Blot analysis were used to examine PAR2 signaling pathway in diabetic CCl4-rats and non-diabetic CCl4-rats.RESULTS: AGS inhibited the protein expression of PAR2 and its downstream pathway PKA and PKC in CCl4-rats. Notably, the effects of AGS were greater in CCl4-rats with diabetes. AGS also significantly attenuated the CCl4-induced upregulations of pro-inflammatory cytokines, namely interleukin-1, interleukin-6 and tumor necrosis factor- accompanied with decreases of collagenic parameterssuch as hexadecenoic acid, laminin and hydroxyproline. Additionally, AGS improved the CCl4-induced exaggerations of liver index and functions including alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase. Moreover, TGF-1, a marker of hepatic fibrosis, was increased in CCl4-rats and AGS inhibitedincreases in TGF-1 induced by CCl4.CONCLUSIONS: AGS alleviates hepatic fibrosis by inhibiting PAR2 signaling expression and its effects are largely enhanced in diabetic animals. Targeting one or more of these signaling molecules may present new opportunities for treatment and management of hepatic fibrosis; and results of our study are likely to shed light on strategies for application of AGS because it has potentially greater therapeutic effectiveness for hepatic fibrosis in diabetes.

Sens. Franken, Murkowski Make Bipartisan Push to Bring Justice to Native Survivors of Sexual Violence "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published October 20, 2017

New Legislation Would Help Tribes Pursue Justice When Sexual Violence, Trafficking, and Stalking Crimes Perpetrated by Non-Indian Offenders

Sen. Al Franken

WASHINGTON On Thursday, U.S. Sens. Al Franken (D-Minn.) and Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) announced a bipartisan effort to help bring justice to Native survivors of sexual violence.

According to the National Institute of Justice, more than half of American Indian and Alaska Native womenand more than one in four menhave experienced sexual violence in their lifetime, and among those who have experienced sexual violence, nearly all have been victimized by a non-Indian. But as it stands now, if you are a member of a tribe, living in Indian Country, and a non-Indian commits these crimes against you, your ability to seek justice in the courts is severely limited. The Justice for Native Survivors of Sexual Violence Act would allow tribes to pursue recourse when sexual violence, trafficking, and stalking crimes are committed against native women and men.

An alarming number of American Indians face sexual violence in their lifetime, and its frequently at the hands of non-Indians, said Sen. Franken, a member of the Indian Affairs Committee. But because tribes lack jurisdiction over non-Indian offenders, criminals often go unprosecuted, unpunished, and are free to commit more crimes. This is an epidemic that must be addressed, and one of the most important steps we can take is to give tribes more power to hold offenders accountable for these heinous acts. Our commonsense, bipartisan legislation will help tribes address sexual violence in their communities in a meaningful way, and needs to be passed into law.

Artist Omer Fast Compares Protesters to Alt-Right, Chinatown Art Brigade Responds "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Chinatown Art Brigade and allies pasting up the protest placard with their letter to the gallery and artist. (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

After Sundays protests at James Cohan Gallery in Manhattans Chinatown, artist Omer Fast released a statement comparing the Chinatown Art Brigade (CAB) and their activist allies to right-wing trolls carrying tiki-torches and howling for walls to be built.

According to the protesters, Sundays rally came after CAB received no response to their letter to the gallery and artist. The artist has declined to speak directly to the protesters or the media. He released a statement through his gallery yesterday.

Fast writes:

The actual gallery is being used as an immigrant surrogate: a transplant that tries to affect an appearance and blend in, even while its essence is undeniably foreign. I suspect many of the critical reactions to my work have a lot to do with this tension between appearance and essence.

The Chinese have been part of the US for centuries and their presence in Chinatown specifically dates to the late 19th century at the very least, so its not clear what exactly the artist sees as foreign.

The artist is surprised and distressed by the vitriol and name-calling without citing specific terms, but then compares the mostly Asian-American protesters to white supremacists by writing, I expect this sort of characterization from right-wing trolls carrying tiki-torches and howling for walls to be built. I dont expect it from left-wing activists in lower Manhattan.

He also adds: A group of protestors hanged a large poster outside the show, which accuses the gallery of representing a non-US and non-New York artist. The artist understands it as a form of xenophobia. It appears the artist may be referring to the original letter that was enlarged and taped to the front of the gallery.

Veterans with gulf war illness exhibit greater mitochondrial DNA damage which is consistent with mitochondrial dysfunction. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2017 ;12(9):e0184832. Epub 2017 Sep 14. PMID: 28910366 Abstract Title:  Role of mitochondrial DNA damage and dysfunction in veterans with Gulf War Illness. Abstract:  Gulf War Illness (GWI) is a chronic multi-symptom illness not currently diagnosed by standard medical or laboratory test that affects 30% of veterans who served during the 1990-1991 Gulf War. The clinical presentation of GWI is comparable to that of patients with certain mitochondrial disorders-i.e., clinically heterogeneous multisystem symptoms. Therefore, we hypothesized that mitochondrial dysfunction may contribute to both the symptoms of GWI as well as its persistence over time. We recruited 21 cases of GWI (CDC and Kansas criteria) and 7 controls to participate in this study. Peripheral blood samples were obtained in all participants and a quantitative polymerase chain reaction (QPCR) based assay was performed to quantify mitochondrial and nuclear DNA lesion frequency and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) copy number (mtDNAcn) from peripheral blood mononuclear cells. Samples were also used to analyze nuclear DNA lesion frequency and enzyme activity for mitochondrial complexes I and IV. Both mtDNA lesion frequency (p = 0.015, d = 1.13) and mtDNAcn (p = 0.001; d = 1.69) were elevated in veterans with GWI relative to controls. Nuclear DNA lesion frequency was also elevated in veterans with GWI (p = 0.344; d = 1.41), but did not reach statistical significance. Complex I and IV activity (p>0.05) were similar between groups and greater mtDNA lesion frequency was associated with reduced complex I (r2 = -0.35, p = 0.007) and IV (r2 = -0.28, p

Astragaloside IV enhances cisplatin chemosensitivity in human colorectal cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Res. 2016 Oct 27 ;24(6):447-453. PMID: 28281965 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV Enhances Cisplatin Chemosensitivity in Human Colorectal Cancer via Regulating NOTCH3. Abstract:  Although astragaloside IV exhibits anti-inflammation, immunoregulatory, and anticancer properties, the chemosensitization effects of astragaloside IV in colorectal cancer have never been reported. Our study tested whether astragaloside could increase cisplatin sensitivity in colorectal cancer. CCK-8 assay was used to measure the cell viability of colorectal cancer cells. Quantitative real-time PCR and Western blot were performed to determine the mRNA and protein expression, respectively. Our data revealed that astragaloside IV administration significantly suppressed the cell growth of colorectal cancer cells, whereas no obvious cytotoxicity of astragaloside IV was observed in nonmalignant colonic cells. In addition, combined treatment with astragaloside IV dramatically elevated the chemosensitivity of colorectal cancer cells to cisplatin. Mechanical investigation revealed that the mRNA and protein expression of NOTCH3 was significantly lower in cisplatin and astragaloside IV-treated cells compared with cells treated with cisplatin alone. On the contrary, no obvious changes in tumor cell growth were shown after upregulation of NOTCH3 whether in the presence or absence of astragaloside IV. Thus, our data demonstrate that astragaloside IV increases the chemosensitivity of colorectal cancer cells to cisplatin, at least partly, through inhibition of NOTCH3. This study suggests that combined therapy with astragaloside IV might be a novel therapeutic approach for colorectal cancer.

Astragaloside IV exerted a possible neuroprotective effect during the cerebral ischemia-reperfusion injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oxid Med Cell Longev. 2017 ;2017:8424326. Epub 2017 Feb 20. PMID: 28303172 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV for Experimental Focal Cerebral Ischemia: Preclinical Evidence and Possible Mechanisms. Abstract:  Astragaloside IV (AST-IV) is a principal component of Radix Astragali seu Hedysari (Huangqi) and exerts potential neuroprotection in experimental ischemic stroke. Here, we systematically assessed the effectiveness and possible mechanisms of AST-IV for experimental acute ischemic stroke. An electronic search in eight databases was conducted from inception to March 2016. The study quality score was evaluated using the CAMARADES. Rev Man 5.0 software was used for data analyses. Thirteen studies with 244 animals were identified. The study quality score of included studies ranged from 3/10 to 8/10. Eleven studies showed significant effects of AST-IV for ameliorating the neurological function score (P

Bank Run Imminent: Catalan Separatists Urge Supporters To Pull Cash From ATMs On Friday Morning "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As tensions escalate in Spain, Catalan Separatists are potentially about to do some real damage and hit Madrid where it really hurts. In a tweeted message to their 270,000 followers, Assemblea Nacional urged supporters to pull cash from CaixaBank and Banco Sabadell branches between 8 am and 9am Friday to protest at their decision to shift their legal domiciles out of the region Civil society organizations in Catalonia call for a mass withdrawal of money from bank ATMs on Friday at 8am in

order to pressure the Spanish government. Organizers dont specify how much money should be taken out nor what to do with it. The action targets the five main banks in Catalonia: Caixa Bank, Sabadell, Bankia, BBVA and Santander. Organizers call on clients of Caixa Bank and Sabadell to show their disagreement with the banks recent decision to move their headquarters out of Catalonia due to the escalating political crisis between governments in Barcelona and Madrid.

Astragaloside IV may be a promising candidate for the treatment of lead developmental neurotoxicity. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biochim Biophys Acta. 2017 Jun ;1863(6):1195-1203. Epub 2017 Mar 14. PMID: 28315454 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV attenuates lead acetate-induced inhibition of neurite outgrowth through activation of Akt-dependent Nrf2 pathway in vitro. Abstract:  Recently, oxidative stress is strongly associated with lead (Pb)-induced neurotoxicity. We reported previously that Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) possesses potent antioxidant properties. Here, we evaluate the hypothesis that AS-IV attenuates lead acetate (PbAc)-mediated inhibition of neurite outgrowth might mainly result from its antioxidant property via serine/threonine protein kinase (Akt)-dependent activation of the nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) pathway. Interestingly, AS-IV attenuates PbAc-induced inhibition of neurite outgrowth and displayed potential antioxidant properties by inhibiting reactive oxygen species (ROS). Concomitantly, AS-IV enhanced phase II detoxifying enzymes such as heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1), thioredoxin reductase (TrxR), and glutamate cysteine ligase catalytic subunit (GCLc). Conversely, AS-IV had no effect on GCL modulatory subunit (GCLm) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity/expression. Furthermore, AS-IV evoked Akt phosphorylation, and subsequent induced phosphorylation of glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3) at Ser9 (that is, inactivation), which stimulated Nrf2-mediated antioxidant response element (ARE)-containing activation. Importantly, Akt locates upstream of GSK-3 and regulates phase II detoxifying enzymes gene expression through Nrf2 nuclear accumulation in PC12 cells exposed to PbAc. Noteworthy, these results were further confirmed through signalling pathway inhibitors, dominant negative mutant and short hairpin RNA technology. Collectively, these in vitro findings suggest that AS-IV attenuates PbAc-induced inhibition of neurite outgrowth attributed to its antioxidant properties and may be a promising candidate for the treatment of lead developmental neurotoxicity.

Mars Once Had A Lake 10 Times Larger Than The Great Lakes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Mike Wehner; Fox News

Scientists have known for some time that Mars once had lots and lots of water in fact, some of it is still there but exactly where it existed on the planet has been pretty difficult to figure out thanks to billions of years of surface erosion.

Now, NASAs Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has discovered one place on the red planet that held a whole bunch of the life-giving liquid: an incredibly massive lake that, during its peak, held ten times the amount of water of all the Great Lakes, combined.
