Top 10 Books for Empowering Yourself as a Mother. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"





Yesterday I wrote a post outlining five of the ways we tend to give away our power as mothers. It is easy to read about what not to do, but given how most of us were brought up, what *to do* instead can feel confusing and like we are at a loss. With that said, there is no destination and there is no arriving. We are always learning and growing and doing our best to stretch ourselves where we can.

Once I realized so many of the messages I recieved as a young girl and teenager didnt serve me or make sense as an adult, I dove deep into books that rocked my world. I love books for this reason. They can offer a fresh new perspective and change the way you view and approach reality. One book can be a total paradigm shift for you. I have read several such books, and that is what I want to offer you here.

The books I list below are books that I believe would greatly shift the lives of mothers and women for the better if we had them as some sort of required reading. They offer radical changes in the way we view things such as the way we birth babies, parent, take care of ourselves and our families, have sex, and ultimately live our lives. I put Mothers in the title, but really these books are for all women.

Here are my favorite books that will definitely have you feeling empowered and confident as a woman and a mother:

This Is Your Home Dressed in the Colors of Fashion Week "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Like all things, New York Fashion Week must come to an end. And that day was yesterday. While the fashion industry is moving in more diverse and perhaps political directions, its frankly fun parade this year reflects the distance we sometimes need to put between ourselves and the uneasy times in which we live. Even the bewildering video of Jim Carreys fashion week party interview is kind of on-point in its articulation of our cultural existential crisis. Its in times like these when we find not only our deepest compassion, but also our most absurd distractions. Occasionally, reality is too much to absorb 24/7.

Thats where I am fluctuating between the emotion of the heavy everyday and reveling in my favorite ridiculous follies. Ive been watching The Brady Bunch for the dated Technicolor delight and happy endings, making brownies for dinner and dreaming up color names with my kid. I came across the Pantone Fall fashion color report and immediately started Willy Wonka set designing them, imaging sinfully monochromatic interiors stocked with all the colors of the (fall) rainbow. If these fashion colors were homes, what the heck would they look like?

Thats what Im here to show you. Caitlin

Celibate Strictly contestants to be allowed to dance alone "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

New BBC Guidelines have paved the way for solo dancers on Strictly. It means that celibate clergy, those for whom sexual intercourse would be illegal or painful because of their age as well as recovering sex addicts whod f*ck a pot plant given half the chance but have decided not to can enter themselves into the competition with a self-tango or single pasa doble. In addition, celibates can can instead of can-can. They will be banned from the cha cha cha for mathematical reasons.

Explaining the policy shift, BBC Head of Multiversity Perry Smythe said Its well known that the traditional ballroom dance is no more or less than a ritual metaphor for pre heterosexual behavior. But we mustnt exclude those for whom foxtrot-foreplay is a no no. Im not talking about the Gay Gordons, Lesbian Lauras and bisexual Berties or even the Polyamorous Pollies. Im talking about the celibate Cyrils, and solo Stephanies. To be true to their own sexuality they would either stand perfectly still to the Samba, masturbate the merengue or in some cases wank to the waltz. To take that last example, the time signature would be a real challenge, but would it make great TV? Our audition videos suggest not.

Meanwhile BBC 1s new Black British spicy chicken cooking competition has been put on the back burner until a more suitable title can be found.

Watch a Musician Improvise on a 500-Year-Old Music Instrument, The Carillon "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Last year we featured the Wintergatan Music Machine, a lovingly handcrafted in wood automated instrument created by artist/musician Martin Mollin. Over 2,000 marbles travel through a complex series of gears, cranks, and tubes, eventually striking notes on a xylophone and creating beats on two closely micd pads to make bass and snare drum sounds. Theres more layers to follow in the video, and its all been programed by Mollin.

His video earned over 55 million views on Youtube. What inspired the Wintergatan Music Machine?The collection of old automata at the Speelklok Museum, where Mollin's machine now resides. In an interview, he told Wired:

Even before digital they made fantastic, programmable music instruments. In bell towers and church towers that play a melody they always have a programming wheel exactly like the one that is on the marble machine.

Which leads to todays video, where Mollin gets to improvise on the machine that inspired him to make his own: a 500-year-old carillon. This carillon uses a programmable wheel (or repinnable musical drum as it is officially called), which allowed melodies to be played on church bells.

Those patterns are set on the drum by a series of movable stops, but this carillon also has a second set of keys that are arranged like a piano, and must be played with a fist. Mollin has a go, and improvises a melody near the end.

Mollin also hosts Music Machine Mondays on his YouTube channel, where he explores more of the museums collection of automata, like this insane...

Artist Turns Real Loaves of Bread into Illuminating Lamps "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Quirky Table Lamps by Pampshade

Improvements in lighting technology have made ordinary table lamps a thing of the past. Brighter bulbs with longer life spans and greater portability mean that lighting design inspiration is not limited by these constraints and can come from a variety of placeslike cracked eggs, optical illusions, and jellyfish. Japanese artist Yukiko Morita continues this trend with table and wall lamps that are made out of bread. Yesthe same baked good we all enjoy has also found a place in illuminating our homes.

Calling her collection Pampshade, the quirky table lamps and wall mounts are made from real loaves of bread. Figuring out the design was no easy feat, but the endeavor has been Morita's passion project for the last 10 years. I love bread. Bread is cute, she explained. I want to display it in my room and stare at it. Don't we all?

Morita's lamps look good enough to eat. Using ingredients that include bread flour, yeast, LED lighting, and batteriesas well as some secret ingredientsshe's able to bake them into fluffy loaves. A layer of resin preserves the texture, as if the bread just came out of the oven.

Pampshade products are now available in Moritas online shop. From croissants to baguettes, your favorite types of bread now ship internationally.

Japanese artist Yukiko Morita has taken quirky table lamps to a new level with Pampshade.

If Psychiatrists Took Truth Serum, What Would They Say? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Do you know a psychiatrist/pediatrician who has treated half the kids in your town for ADHD for the past 20 years? Is there now a heroin epidemic in your town? If so, you may want to talk to him or her about his/her possible role in it. Before you do, you should know that psychiatrists dont use the same language that others do the meaning of what they say isnt always so clear. I can translate psychiatrist speak, since practicing within the field for over 30 years enabled me to gain easier insight than most people into understanding what their words really mean. Here are 13 examples:

If a psychiatrist says: Your son has a brain disease called ADHD. Its like having a Ferrari with bicycle brakes, he/she really means: Your son is perfectly fine; he just hasnt been raised yet. Its me who is sick. I suffer from EDHD (Ethical-Deficit Hypersedativity Disorder). I only told you that because a mechanic just told me that my Ferrari has CNSD (Car Not Starting Disorder), so I need money for a new one.

When psychiatrists say: We now know that childrens emotional/behavioral problems are not due to anything parents do or do not do, they really mean: We now know that we can make more money by lying and telling parents what they want to hear than by telling them the truth.

When a psychiatrist says: Your kid has a brain hard-wiring defect which impairs his/her ability to learn how to manage his/her temper/impulses, it really means: Of course your child can learn to alter his/her behavior; even simple animals like mollusks can. You shouldnt trust me so much.

When psychiatrists say: Kids with ADHD do better in school once they are treated, they really mean: We have managed to change Americas school motto from: If at first you dont succeed, try, try again to If at first you dont succeed, give up and get accommodations such as: Fewer correct answers may be required in order to achieve a test grade if a child is disabled by ADHD.

When psychiatrists say: ADHD symptoms will greatly improve with medication, and the earlier treatment begins, the better the outcome, they really mean: Weve succeeded in tricking parents into replacing child-raising with sedation from age six on, and are trying to get them to begin even earlier. We hope to someday tell pregnant moms whose babies kick a lot: Your fetus has ADHD.

When psychiatrists say: We now know that ADHD persists to adulthood, they really mean: We now know that treating ADHD effectively creates lifelong clients, since kids who are shot with daily tranquilizer darts never really mature; their wildness returns each time they awaken from it.

When psychiatrists say: You have a chemica...

A Border Crossing Simulation Probes Virtual Realitys Ethical Limitations "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

From Carne y Arena installation, design by Neil Kellerhouse (all images courtesy of LACMA)

LOS ANGELES Director Alejandro Gonzlez Irritus virtual-reality gesamtkunstwerk, Carne y Arena (Virtually Present, Physically Invisible), is an ultra-immersive triptych that aims to give visitors the opportunity to briefly experience the treacherous journey of crossing the MexicoUnited States border. Undoubtedly a timely topic, given the presidents campaign to criminalize immigrants and build that wall, Irritus work explores the human conditions of the tens of thousands of Latin American refugees and immigrants who come to the U.S. each year in search of a better life. The experience is a visceral roller-coaster that blends installation, cinema, and technology into a super-sensorial work. Carne y Arena, which translates to flesh and sand, premiered at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, then traveled to the Prada Foundation in Milan, and is now on view at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. It will travel to Tlatelolco museum in Mexico City later this fall.

Carne y Arena aims to allow visitors to put themselves in the shoes of a person crossing the border through sight, sound, touch, and virtual reality, leading to an overtly visceral experience. Not only does the film tackle the limits of technology, but, more significantly, it probes the boundaries of VR as an empathy machine and aims to humanize immigrants and refugees who are so often wrongly described as criminals. In collaboration with cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki, Irritu spent more than four years working with Mexican and Central American refugees who were willing to share their stories and experiences to create a work that Irritu describes as a semi-fictionalized ethnography adapted from their journeys.

Cinnamon for Weight Loss: Does it Work? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

cinnamon weight lossIn herbal medicine, the benefits of cinnamon to health are numerous and impressive. Ive written before about how I use a teaspoon of freshly grated varieties in my morning smoothie.

The season determines whether I use Saigon (a type of Cassia) or Ceylon cinnamon. Cassia, for example, is one of the best herbs for seasonal allergies, so I use it during Spring months. It helps ward off sneezing from the extremely heavy oak tree pollen that blankets Central Florida for about 6-8 weeks every year.

However, not all cinnamon is created equal. Store bought ground cinnamon and cinnamon sticks even organic are months or even years old at best and irradiated at worst. Old cinnamon is less potent than fresh and irradiating herbs renders them useless from a medicinal point of view. (...)

A satellite image of Virgin Gorda before Hurricane Irma hit (left) and after (right)

 

These before and after images, taken by the Landsat 8 satellite, show plainly and clearly how destructive Hurricane Iram was to the Caribbean islands in its path.  The satellite had been busy snapping photos as a way to document the damage.

NASA has released a series of satellite imagery showing islands in the Caribbean before and after the major storm.  The photos were taken on August 25 and September 10, 2017, respectively.

The image below is of the island Barbuda both before and after the storm.  Locals and authorities in the Caribbean have said that this storm was so strong, it wiped Barbuda off the map.

Around 90% of Barbudas buildings are rubble, and a majority of the island is still underwater, making it uninhabitable for the 1800 residents who before Iram ripped through, called the island home.  It didnt fare as well as Antiqua, which is still green, meaning its tropical vegetation is still mostly in tact.

Aside from the slightly patchy cloud coverage in the post-hurricane images, the main thing you will notice is the different coloring of the land. In the images from late-August, the islands are a lush vibrant green, while the ones after the hurricane are a duller brown. This is because the hurricanes violent 185 miles per hour (298 kilometer per hour) winds literally stripped the land of much of its tropical vegetation. Additionally, salt spray spat up by the storm can damage the leaves still on the trees. ...

Laura Ingraham Gets 10pm Slot at Fox, 1786 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: Laura Ingraham Gets 10pm Slot at Fox, 1786 Synopsis: Fox News is shuffling their primetime lineup again. Former President Ronald Reagan speechwriter, Laura Ingraham, gets her own show to air in Hannitys 10pm slot and Hannity moves up to 9pm, immediately following Tucker Carlson at 8. The Five drops back to its original position at 5 pm, having failed to attract the more hard-core Fox audience at 9. The Specialists Eric Bollings creation has been cancelled after Bolling was dropped from the network as a result of sexual allegations from a decade ago. Fox chief, Rupert Murdoch, was anxious to axe Bolling in order to buttress his troublesome attempt to buy Britains Sky network. Two weeks ago, Murdoch shut off the Fox News feed over the Sky Network to all of Great Britain in a desperate attempt to distance himself from the largest provider of conservative television news content. Well, it didnt work. Yesterday, Murdochs proposed 15.5 billion-dollar deal for Sky has been referred to the Competition and Markets Authority the agency that tries to prevent monopolies from forming. The referral will be on the grounds of broadcasting standards, and that means there will be increasing pressure from the Murdochs on the more hard-hitting Fox News shows, such as Hannity and Tucker Carlson.

Col. Ollie North U S Has Special Weapons Never Used Before, 1789 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Col. Ollie North U.S. Has Special Weapons Never Used Before, 1789 Synopsis: On Sean Hannitys show last night, Col. Oliver North confirmed what we have suspected for several weeks that the U.S. military now has operational either a new rail-gun weapon, or a multi-colored laser weapon that can shoot down a North Korea missile during the ascent phase. In other words at low altitude, low speed when the missile would be the most vulnerable. Col. Norths slip of the tongue came during a discussion with Hannity of what military options President Trump has at his disposal should he decide he has to take pre-emptive action against North Korea to protect the American people or our close allies in South Korea or Japan. [insert 1] Col. North stumbles a bit as he quickly tries to decide just how much he can say without revealing classified weapons information. [insert 2] But then he goes ahead and confirms that we now have the capability of shooting down a N. Korean missile during its ascent phase. [insert 3] Col. North is very knowledgable about the U.S. arsenal of special, cutting-edge weapons because of his long relationship with SOF (Special Operations Forces). He then goes into a very lucid recitation of just what the U.S. would bring to bear in such a situation where the lives of millions of Americans would be at risk with only a 45-minute timeline to seek shelter.

Samsung wont partner with Korindo following outrage over forest destruction in Indonesia "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Samsung will stay away from any joint venture with a Korean-Indonesian conglomerate, Korindo, amid an NGO campaign highlighting Korindos rainforest destruction for palm oil in Indonesias Tanah Papua region. Samsungs announcement that it would partner with Korindo in the logistics sector had been widely reported in the Korean media. The joint venture was not directly related to Korindos palm oil operation, for which it has burned and cleared vast tracts of forestland in Papua and elsewhere to make way for its plantations, NGO Mighty Earth has exposed. Mighty has continued to pressure Korindo, most recently targeting its business partners in other sectors. Mighty and consumer group SumOfUs launched an online petition calling on Samsung to cut ties with Korindo, and it amassed more than 73,000 signatures, including 15,000 from users of Samsung phones. The petition was hand-delivered to Samsungs main office in Seoul, ahead of the companys launch of its new Galaxy Note 8 phone last month. That was part of a week of action surrounding the Galaxy Note 8s launch in which over 2,000 Samsung customers sent emails to the electronics giant from their Samsung devices. Over 10,000 people took action online, and nearly 1 million people viewed online ads about Samsungs connection to rainforest destruction, according to Mighty. I own two of your TVs and recently switched my Galaxy back to Apple because of your Korindo involvement, said one of the many personalized emails to Samsung.

According to investigative reporter Luke Rosiak, writing in the Daily Caller, the ongoing revelations surrounding the investigation of Imran Awan, the IT guy of Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the former Chair of the Democratic National Committee, have now expanded into a full-blown espionage investigation. Apparently, Awan was dumping every scrap of classified intelligence information that he could get his hands on from the Democrat members of the House Intelligence Committee and elsewhere into an illegal Dropbox account an account that any foreign intelligence service could peruse and purchase from if Awan gave them access. That is why such Dropbox accounts are prohibited in Congressional Offices. To get around this prohibition, Awan set up a secret private server hmmm, where have we heard that term before??? - that was connected directly to the House Democratic Caucus. Via this route, Awan had admin access to all emails and office computers of 45 members of Congress even after Capital Police pulled his credentials and tried to shut off his access. According to the Daily Caller, data was taken from this secret server and transferred to Awans Dropbox account to which investigators may still not have access because it was a private account. In the spring of 2016, House IT administrators discovered that the Awans were allegedly falsifying purchase orders that is, stealing from the government. As the investigators were following the money trail, they discovered the secret server. When they asked for an image of this server to check it out, according to a senior official involved in the investigation who spoke with the Daily Caller: We asked for an image of the server, and they deliberately turned over a fake [image]. They were using the House Democratic Caucus as their central service warehouse  It was a breach. The data was completely out of [the members] possession. Does it mean it was sold to the Russians?

Surface Owners Rights Given Legal Consideration in Doddridge County WV "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Marcellus Well Pad in Doddridge County, WV

Doddridge case called a boost for surface owners in Marcellus gas region

From an Article by Ken Ward, Jr., Charleston Gazette-Mail, September 9, 2017

Photo: The natural gas well pad, shown during the construction phase, was the subject of the lawsuit in Doddridge County.

Two Doddridge County residents have won a court ruling and a jury verdict that advocates for surface owners rights say provide a boost in the ongoing struggle over the impacts of the Marcellus Shale gas-drilling boom in Northern West Virginia.

Last week, a circuit court jury awarded Beth Crowder and David Wentz a total of $190,000 in damages in a case brought against EQT Production Company over a well pad that EQT constructed on the residents property without their permission in order to drill horizontally underground to reach natural gas supplies located beneath neighboring properties.

David Grubb, a Charleston lawyer who represented Crowder and Wentz, said it is believed to be the first verdict in which plaintiffs were awarded fair and reasonable rental value in a such a case against a natural gas producer.

This is a victory for surface landowners, Grubb said Friday. It represents a recognition that drillers cannot use a surface landowners property to drill horizontally into neighboring tracts without express permission.

Jurors determined that the residents deserved $95,000 for the rental value of the property and another $95,000 for annoyance and inconvenience. The jury declined to award any punitive damages to punish EQT for its behavior.

In the case, Crowder and Wentz were arguing that EQT had trespassed on their property when it built the 20-acre well pad to drill nine horizontal wells, a process that took 16 months and contemplated another three wells would eventually be drilled.

Doddridge Circuit Judge Timothy Sweeney had previously ruled for the residents, saying in a February 2016 order that EQTs right to do what was reasonably necessary to produce gas it owns or leases, that right did not include the authority to drill from the Crowder-Wentz property into mineral tracts that do not underlie that property.

While EQT clearly has the right to do what is ne...

Queen Decides to Go Full Lizard "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Queen Elizabeth has announced that she will see out the rest of her reign in her long-suspected natural state of Giant Lizard. The Palace said over 60 years of playing the role of benign monarch to perfection had taken its toll and she now just wanted to be herself, and she hoped the British people would understand their beloved Sovereign was in fact a giant shape-shifting reptile. It has also been revealed that she wishes to here-after be known by her natural lizard name of Othrakien Drakut.

She will make her first public appearance as Giant Lizard at the opening of a new Community Centre in Bolton next Thursday. Dignitaries and the public have been warned not to be alarmed by Her Majesty if she slithers around on the ground or up the side of the building. At the special lunch reception the human guests will dine on smoked venison and a cheese selection while Her Majesty will devour a goat that will be tethered to a lamppost outside.

It is thought a huge new cottage industry will be created around the Queen as millions of souvenir mugs, dinner sets and tea towels will be produced featuring her new persona. It also means all UK paper currency and coins will need to be re-minted to the new Lizard issue.

Meanwhile the BBC has negotiated a deal with Her Majesty to allow David Attenborough unprecedented access to her new lizard life and will result in a feature-length documentary to be screened next year called Natural Born Lizard.

Behold the Beautiful Designs of Brazils 1920s Art Deco Magazine, Para Todos "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Art Nouveau, Art Deco these are terms we associate not only with a particular period in historythe turn of the 20th century and the ensuing jazz-age of the 20sbut also with particular locales: Paris, New York, L.A., London, Vienna, or the Jugendstil of Weimar Munich. We probably do not think of Rio de Janeiro. This may be due to biases about the privileged location of culture, such that most people in Europe and North America, even those with an arts education, know very little about art from the colonies.

But it is also the case that Brazil had its own modern art movement, one that strove for a distinctly Brazilian sensibility even as it remained in dialogue with Europe and the U.S. The movement announced itself in 1922, the centennial of the South American nations independence from Portugal.




In celebration, artists from So Paulo held the Semana de Arte Moderna, seven days in which, the BBC writes, they constructed, deconstructed, performed, sculpted, gave lectures, read poetry and created some of the most avant-garde works ever seen in Brazil.

iPhone X Mandatory Facial Recognition: What Youre Not Being Told about Face ID "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

To unlock the new iPhone X, users will have no choice but to use their own face. There is no home button or touch swiping this phone to unlock it. The only option is the high-tech facial recognition system titled Face ID, a feature being criticized by many. An article from Business Insider is titled Youll need to use your face, instead of your fingerprints, to unlock the new iPhone X.

According to Forbes:

Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller said Face ID learns your face and can adapt to recognize changes in the users appearance. Schiller said the TrueDepth camera system of the iPhone X combines a lot of high-end tech an infrared camera, proximity and ambient light sensors, as well as a flood illuminator and Apples own specialized hardware all mapping the face with 30,000 invisible dots flashed on the visage. That information feeds the iPhone Xs neural network, which creates a mathematical model of the users face.

People have noted that the facial recognition feature could easily be abused by crooked cops. All they would have to do is hold it up to a persons face to unlock it.

What if a person is introverted or uncomfortable with surveillance? People already know to cover their cameras and microphones with duct tape to avoid being recorded. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg seems to think its necessary.

5 American Traditional Tattoos You Can Say Represent Your Grandpa or Something "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

American traditional tattoos are as popular now as they ever have been. These dope pieces have seen a resurgence within the last couple of years and anybody whos anybody has at least one. The problem is, inevitably some idiot is going to ask you what your sick ink means to you. But fret not, because weve prepared a few go to answers to have at the ready when faced with this moronic question.

The military is a common theme within American traditional tattoos. This bulldog with a knife in his mouth is not only a classic symbol of the service but is also super adorable. Your Grandpa was in the army, or maybe that was just the reserves. Either way, you can tell people that your tattoo is in honor of the sacrifices he may or may not have made. They definitely wont think you just picked this one off a flash sheet.

This badass eagle chest piece is a classic. In traditional tattooing eagles have long been a symbol of America, which is perfect for you because you live in America. When people ask you what it means you could say it represents a love of your country. Or, depending on your audience, its an ironic nod to the blind patriotism of the American masses. Your call.

As well as mandatory vaccinations there are plans to make employees submit their DNA records with threats of dismissal for non-compliance. All done under the guise of health preventative measures for the greater good of the people.

Ted Leo Drops Pharmacists as Result of New Healthcare Bill "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

WAKEFIELD, R.I. Musician Ted Leo was forced to drop his backing band, the Pharmacists, for his new album The Hanged Man due to a new cost-cutting health care bill passed by Congress, according to close sources.

Its just been so difficult to record the new album, said Leo when pressed for comment. In the 90s and under Obamacare, I could afford to have all of the Pharmacists but with this new plan, the premiums prevent me from covering anyone beyond my drummer.

The Hanged Man, Leos first album without the Pharmacists since 1999, was funded entirely through Kickstarter a story shared by millions of Americans forced to crowdsource their rising health care costs.

I cant access my usual guitarist under this plan, and if I ever need to pick up a prescription, Im not even allowed to use CVS, Leo said. This bill is destroying blue collar musicians and workers all around the United States.

James Canty, Leos guitarist since the Treble in Trouble album in 2000, has reportedly had to take a second job at a local bookstore to cover his own costs as a result of the new legislation.

I know Ted isnt to blame, but losing the Pharmacists has been really tough, said Canty, tears welling in his eyes. I mean, shit I spent years earning a doctorate in pharmaceutics. I worked as a Pharmacist for nearly two decades. Was that a little overkill to play in a punk band named after pharmacists? Sure. But the point still stands that this GOP bill ruined that for me.

The bill has been roundly criticized by voters, particularly because members of Congress would be exempt from any cuts themselves.

Its fucked up that guys like Ted Leo have to lose their entire backing band, and Senator John McCain gets to keep all his benefits. Hes releasing a new album this fall called Johnny McCain and the Military Doctors that has six guitarists, noted one user in a viral Reddit post....

South Park TV Show Skewers South Park Video Game for Being Liberal Pussies "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

LOS ANGELES The upcoming South Park role playing game called South Park: The Fractured but Whole, which introduces a difficulty mode that criticizes racial injustice, was ridiculed on an episode of the television show South Park for being a buncha left-wing nonsense, last night.

The episode features a scene where Eric Cartman calls the video game a cuck fantasy world before removing a South Park: The Fractured but Whole disc from its case, defecating where the disc is supposed to go, closing the case, and selling it to Butters.

I just think whoever made this video game is a total fucking hypocrite, even if that person is me, said South Park creator Trey Parker. Our TV show is about calling out all the stupid people who think theyre so clever. And to me, theres no bigger target for that than the person who wrote up this Fractured Whole game, which is myself

Last Minute Preparedness: How To Prep For Sheltering in Place "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

ReadyNutrition Readers, this article is not a substitute for common sense, nor is it a betting slip of things to do to beat the odds.  With Hurricane Harvey dealing our beloved states of Texas and Louisiana a crippling blow and with Hurricane Irma devastating the state of Florida, one thing is for sure the nation needs to focus on preparednessin all departments and for all disasters.  Were going to run with this ball to give a checklist of things to do if there is a need to stay at home.

Sometimes its not just a matter of being either hard-headed, or rooted within the home and sentimentalities.  Sometimes there are things that force a family to stay in place and try to face what is coming, regardless of what the rest of the people in the area are doing.  Examples of this would be when a family member cannot be transported or moved, or when the family is unable to do it logistically for fear of losing everything or the great hardships imposed by fleeing.

Undoubtedly the army of skeptics is ready to call for fire on my position.  Before Splash out, sounds on the radio, however, the last sentence is the reality.  It happened that way in New Orleans with Katrina.  Whatever the situation or the reasons, it is not the focus of this piece to argue with Ned the Naysayer, but to provide something to help those who need it.  First advice:

If you can leave the area before the disaster strikes, then do so, and seek shelter elsewhere.

Now to the business at hand.  The more able-bodied people you have in the family to help you, the quicker you can expedite these basic tasks.  Review my articles on Katrina, and much of this ties into what my family and I did there.  Were going to focus on stuff for a hurricane primarily, and then tailor-make it into advice to suit other disasters as well.

Who Painted the First Abstract Painting?: Wassily Kandinsky? Hilma af Klint? Or Another Contender? "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Kandinsky, Untitled, 1910

Many painters today concentrate on producing abstract work and a fair few of those have only ever produced abstract work. But look not so very far back in human history, and you'll find that to paint meant to paint representatively, to replicate on canvas the likenesses of the actual people, places, and things out there in the world. Humanity, of course didn't evolve with its representational art skills pre-installed: though some cave paintings do recognizably depict men and beasts, many strike us today as what we would call abstract, or at least abstracted. So which modern artists can lay claim to having rediscovered abstraction first?

Kandinsky, Composition V, 1911

If you've studied any art history, you might well name the early 20th-century Russian painter Wassily Kandinsky (whose first abstract watercolor from 1910 appears at the top of the post). But "while Kandinsky is today hailed as the father of abstract painting," writes Artsy's Abigail Cain, "he was by no means the only player in the development of non-representational painting," though "his work Komposition V did, admittedly, jumpstart public interest in abstract painting."

Solar Kill Shots and CMEs: How Space Weather Can Affects Your Preps "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

https://survivallife.com/drone-defense-gnat-warfare/

The planets within our solar system have a strange effect on Earth. This effect has been studied through astrology for thousands of years. However, recently research has shed light that the planets, along with our Sun, have concrete physical effects on Earth as well. Lets call this phenomena space weather, shall we? Understanding space weather can help with understanding how to survive and prepare on Earth.

Space Weather | How It Affects Earth

One example of space weather is the Moons magnetic effect. This magnetism coincides with Earths ocean tides. In addition, the Suns behavior has been shown to correlate with earthquakes. Solar winds released from Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) and Coronal Holes trigger these natural disasters.

The Sun also has an electromagnetic effect on Earth. As CMEs released from the Suns surface increase in speed, the particles trapped in the solar winds hit Earths magnetosphere. This causes the Aurora Borealis, which can be seen in the South. In our daily life, these solar winds impact Earths electrical grid as well. This effect is continuously monitored. You can check the relationship between the electrical grid and solar winds via the Kp Index.

With enough speed, a CME released from the Sun could wipe out our entire electrical grid. The most recent recorded event occurred in 1859. Known as the Carrington Event, the sun released such a powerful CME, also known as a Solar Kill Shot, which caused telegraphs to be disrupted. Some even burst into flames. Although not much of society was reliant on the electrical grid at that time, a Solar Kills Shot today would virtually set humanity back to the stone age.

The Solar Kill Shot

A Solar Kill Shot must be understood and accounted for in your family emergency preparedness plan. Similar to an EMP (electromagnetic pulse), a Solar Kill Shot would render every electrical unit useless. This includes cell phones, radios, computers, most vehicles, medical equipment, and of course the grid which powers your homes lights, sewage, and heat.

A recovery from a Solar Kill Shot has been estimated to take upwards of $2 trillion to repair. In addition, recovery from such an event could take up to 10 years. With this in mind, long term survival skills should be learned befo...

Navajo Nation Leaders Praise Sen. Pete Domenici, Who Passed Away on Wednesday "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Former U.S. Senator Pete Domenici died on Wednesady.

Published September 14, 2017

WINDOW ROCK   President Russell Begaye and Vice President Jonathan Nez were saddened today to learn of the passing of former U.S. Senator Pete Domenici.

Sen. Domenici died on Wednesday morning in Albuquerque, N.M. He passed away following complications from abdominal surgery. He was 85.

President Russell Begaye recognized Sen. Domenicis early involvement in strengthening the Navajo economy.

Sen. Domenici has been a friend to the Navajo Nation in helping build its economy through early programs like the Office of Navajo Economic Opportunity, he said. Those programs helped catapult the Nation toward having a strong economic base.

The president praised Domenicis advocacy in fostering the Nations involvement in the defense industry by partnering with Raytheon, as well as in bringing companies like General Dynamics onto the Navajo Nation.

He has been involved with many developments on the Navajo Nation, President Begaye said. He was good friend that will be missed.

Vice President Jonathan Nez said that Sen. Domenici was a great leader who championed bipartisanship and advocated for issues on behalf of Indian Country.

Our Nation extends our prayers to his family and the state of New Mexico, he said.

The New Mexico Republican was the longest serving U.S. Senator in New Mexicos history, serving six terms in the Senate. In 2007, Domenici was diagnosed with degenerative brain disease which ultimately led to his retirement at the end of his term in 2009.

Domenici was born in Albuquerque, N.M. in 1932 to Italian immigrant parents. He was 85 years old when he died.

During his term as Senator, he has been a friend not only to Navajo but to many other tribes, President Begaye said. We will miss him and we extend our condolences to his family and to his constituents including the Navajo Nation.

The Fascinating Link Between the Pyramids & Otherworldly Visitors "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I have always been fascinated by the Egyptian pyramids. As a kid, I wasnt even aware of the many other types of pyramids that exist on this planet, their significance, or incredible history.

All I knew of were the huge yellowish orange triangular Egyptian pyramids that gave me a sense of wonder and amazement about our past.

Who built them? How did were they built? Why were they built? Could it have been ETs?! It was all so fascinating to me.

As I was doing research for an article I wrote about anomalies with the Great Pyramid that Graham Hancock outlines, I came across a number of interesting aspects to the pyramids that not only lined up with space, but that also suggest there may have been beings in our history that new things far beyond what we humans apparently knew at the time.

Vegetarians Twice as Likely To Be Depressed "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Your diet plays an intricate role in your mood. While excess sugar has been linked to depression, certain foods, like dark leafy greens, mushrooms and turmeric, are linked to positive emotions. In the longer term, what you eat, or don't eat, may also affect your mood by altering your body's levels of certain vitamins, minerals and fatty acids involved in brain health and mood.

While many people choose to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet for health reasons, this is an important factor to consider, as research suggests doing so may be associated with depression.

In fact, in a study of 9,700 vegetarians (including a small number of vegan) men, vegetarians were nearly twice as likely to suffer from depression as meat eaters, even after adjusting for variables like job status, family history and number of children.1 The study couldn't show causation, but it did have a number of theories for why the association may exist.

Why Might Being Vegetarian Increase Depression Risk?

The association may exist because people with depression may be more likely to change their dietary preferences, or it could be related to higher blood levels of phytoestrogens, particularly among those who eat a lot of soy, or even pesticides, a consequence of consuming a lot of nonorganic produce, the researchers said. But, more likely, it has to do with nutrient levels. Vegetarians tend to have lower intakes of omega-3 fats, vitamin B12 and folate, which could affect depression risk as follows:

Omega-3 Fats

Many Americans' diets are lacking in healthy fats, including the animal-based omega-3 fats EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Although omega-3s are most well known for their role in heart health, they also play an integral role in brain health and mental health.

The 2001 book, "The Omega-3 Connection: The Groundbreaking Anti-depression Diet and Brain Program," by Harvard psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Stoll, was among the first works to bring attention to, and support the use of, omega-3 fats for depression.

There is no set recommended standard dose of omega-3 fats, but some health organizations recommend a daily dose of 250 to 500 milligrams (mg) of EPA and DHA for healthy adults. If you suffer from depression, higher doses may be called for.

In one study, an omega-3 supplement with a dose range of 200 to 2,200 mg of EPA per day was effective against primary depression....

They have very similar taste and properties two reasons why is often mistaken for the other. But horticulturists can easily distinguish one from another.

Following the Advice of Ancient Philosophers Can Make You Happier "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

For many, happiness is elusive at best and at times near impossible. There's always something (or someone) pushing our buttons, making us feel less than joyful. According to Barbara Fredrickson, a psychologist and positive-emotions researcher, most Americans have two positive experiences for every negative one.

While that sounds good and well, this 2-to-1 positivity ratio is barely enough to get by. To flourish emotionally, Fredrickson's research1 shows you need a 3-to-1 ratio. That is, you need to have three positive emotions for every negative emotion. Only 20 percent of Americans achieve this critical ratio, which means 80 percent do not. Even worse, more recent research suggests nearly 25 percent of people experience no life enjoyment at all!2

The good news is, happiness can be learned. Part of the equation is training yourself to view life's events from a different perspective. Inconveniences and more serious troubles are unavoidable facts of life. What many fail to realize is that these events do not automatically bar you from being happy unless you let them, that is.

Make Happiness-Boosting Rituals Part of Your Daily Routine

As noted by Eric Barker in a recent Time article:3

" [Y]ou've probably read a zillion articles about happiness online and you're not a zillion times happier. What gives? Reading ain't the same as doing. You wouldn't expect to read some martial arts books and then go kick ass like Bruce Lee, would you? All behavior, all changes, must be trained.

The ancient Stoics knew this. They didn't write stuff just to be read. They created rituals exercises to be performed to train your mind to respond properly to life so you could live it well And what's fascinating is that modern scientific research agrees with a surprising amount of what these guys were talking about 2000 years ago."

Disappointment, especially if you're constantly struggling with things "not going your way," can be a major source of stress, and centenarians those who have crossed the threshold of 100 years of age overwhelmingly cite stress as the most important thing to avoid. This does not mean they were blessed with carefree lives. "Avoidance" here really refers to the...

When in crisis I summon my will, To stand and face, not run and escape, But remain calm, centered, and still.

Ha ha! That is to say you may want to run and escape! Frickin messes these days, personal, financial, physical, you name it. Of course we set these problems up for ourselves unconsciously (with an emphasis on UN) to learn something. The idea is that it stops, changes, or self corrects once you get what it is you were/are supposed to learn lets hope, eh? In the meantime, like I say in the report, its all about priorities and getting them straight. Straight in alignment with your unconscious Soul evolutionary intention. Hence, it all boils down to making the unconscious conscious and the first one there wins (lol)! Wins as in peace of body, mind, heart, and soul.. Yes! Go for it! Injoy!

After two decades in space, NASAs Cassini spacecraft is nearing the end of its remarkable journey of exploration. Having expended almost every bit of the rocket propellant it carried to Saturn, operators are deliberately plunging Cassini into the planet to ensure Saturns moons will remain pristine for future explorationin particular, the ice-covered, ocean-bearing moon Enceladus, but also Titan, with its intriguing pre-biotic chemistry.

On Sept. 15, 2017, the spacecraft will make its final approach to the giant planet Saturn. Cassini will dive into the planets atmosphere, sending science data for as long as its small thrusters can keep the spacecrafts antenna pointed at Earth. Soon after, Cassini will burn up and disintegrate like a meteor.

This is a First: Legislation Would Fully-Fund Indian Health System, Raise Billions "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Sen. Bernie Sanders proposed Medicare for all bill would fully-fund the Indian Health system for the first time in history. (Senate photo)

Guest Commentary

Published September 14, 2017

This is where the country has got to go, Sanders told The Washington Post. Right now, if we want to move away from a dysfunctional, wasteful, bureaucratic system into a rational health-care system that guarantees coverage to everyone in a cost-effective way, the only way to do it is Medicare for All.

Sanders bill has no chance in a Republican Congress. Yet the Vermont Democrat is adding to the richness of the debate. He is showing a clear alternative to Republican plans (the latest is one by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, and Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana.)

But Indian Country should take note. Sanders bill would fully-fund the Indian health system. Lets do the math. The current budget for the Indian Health Service is $6.091 billion dollars. And of that, roughly $1.2 will come from Medicaid, Medicare and other insurance. This serves about 2.2 million American Indians and Alaska Natives in 39 states.

But if Sanders proposal for universal care were enacted every one of those 2.2 million patients would have funding from insurance. The national average for Medicare beneficiary is $10,986. The total: $24.191 billion. A four-fold increase (and this does not include appropriations, just insurance dollars). So if you include both, the total is roughly $30 billion.

This sound like an awful lot of money, right? That big number reflects what other health systems already spend. So actually it...

Cobra Update 9-13-17 Hurricane Meditation Report "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There were many I know who were sending Light and Love to the hurricanes, and it appears that this, along with the meditation organized by Cobra and others, had a beneficial effect.

As you probably know, we were very successful in dissipating hurricane Irma, especially in the last phase of its journey through Florida:.. It was expected that Irma will directly hit Tampa as a powerful category 3 or 4 hurricane with 130 mph winds: Instead, weather station in Tampa recorded 19 mph winds at the moment of the closest approach of the storm:

Our success was easier because of high concentration of Lightworkers in Florida, two Tachyon chambers in Miami area and strong cintamani grids in Florida Keys, Miami and Tampa: The Light forces were guiding the storm so that it created as little damage as possible

Strong weather events are not planetary in scope but are localized to a certain part of the planetary surface and thus critical mass of meditators to dissolve them is usually between 5000 to 10,000 people, which should not be too difficult to reach. With Hurricane Meditation we have shown that strong weather events can be dissipated with the use of our free will and unified action

8-year-old biracial boy was hung from rope by N.H. teenagers because of his race, family says - seattlepi.com "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

8-year-old biracial boy was hung from rope by N.H. teenagers because of his race, family says - seattlepi.com: It was around 5 p.m. on a Monday in late August, and an 8-year-old boy, like so many others that summer evening, was playing in a back yard. The kids he was with had a few years on him - some were as old as 14 - and he had no reason to suspect that the picnic table or tire swing nearby would become tools for what his family alleges was a racially-motivated near-hanging.

That night in Claremont, New Hampshire, took a dark turn, the boy's family claims, when the teens started taunting the boy with racial epithets and throwing sticks and rocks at his legs. Family accounts of the incident reported by the Valley News allege the teens stood on top of the picnic table and grabbed a rope attached to a tire swing.

"The (teenagers) said, 'Look at this,' supposedly putting the rope around their necks," Slattery told the Valley News. "One boy said to (her grandson), 'Let's do this,' and then pushed him off the picnic table and hung him."

28 Things To Remember When You Forget How Powerful You Really Are "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

We all feel down at some point in our lives, and some of us more than others. Sometimes we feel defeated, depressed, and unworthy. If you are anything like me, you may have spent a lot of time feeling broken, ashamed, and guilty, too. These are some of the most difficult emotions to feel about yourself.

This was at a time in my life, where, although I had woken up to a conscious understanding, and had learned about many spiritual concepts how to overcome challenging experiences, the idea that everything happens for a reason, etc.  for the life of me, I could not implement this knowledge and understanding into my life. I felt as though there was actually something wrong with me, that maybe my mind worked differently, or maybe something in me was blocking me from progressing. I was trapped, and I felt truly broken. I compared myself to others around me and just thought they had it easier. I was stuck in this victim mentality.

There were, however, a few pieces of writing and wisdom that I had collected over the years that truly helped me through these hard times. A simple reminder of how powerful we truly are really touched me because, deep down, despite these low feelings, I knew that like everyone else, I was a part of source  everything that is, God, whatever you want to call it. Yes, I realized that I just I said am God, but its okay because so are you!

Sometimes just a simple reminder of our true essence can bring everything into perspective. I hope that you can find some solace in the following quotes when you are going through tough times, and dont forget, If you are going through hell, keep going.

I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being. Hafiz

A Step Away From Peace "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by John Ptacek

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

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

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


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

Burn a Bay Leaf in Your House and See What Happens After 10 Minutes! "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Healthy & Tasty Recipes

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

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

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


Why Burn Bay Leaves

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

But bay leaves arent just used in food and fairytales, the herb is commonly used as a fragrance ingredient in creams, lotions, perfumes, soaps, and detergents.

Say Hello to the Collective Shaman (Hint: You Are Part of It) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The role of the Shaman in the original peoples is to resolve issues of the tribe that other members were unable to rectify themselves. They heal, they influence, they transform, otherwise known as the art of magic. Traditional and contemporary shamans do this by consciously venturing into the non-physical realm a practice called journeying to dance with the spirits of their ancestors and their land to find answers to their current affairs, and assist the energetic rivers to flow in more desired directions.

Entire cultures progressively lost their connection to themselves, each other and nature, as well as their personal exploration of esoterica. The war on metaphysics advanced. A philosophical disease called materialism took a toxic grip after industrialisation, consumerism and the technological explosion saturated peoples minds and hearts with predominately mundane and destructive conceptions of reality.

Communities were now highly fragmented and the majority of people were sucked into urbanised enslavement.

But then the internet was created. An unprecedented moment occurred in humanitys (known) history where information was being shared instantaneously to all areas of our planet, resulting with a significant amplification of cross-cultural ideas and behaviours.

A human culture, not an ethnic or regional one, was being birthed (or simply remembered).

How to Protect Your Energy Around Negativity "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Tanaaz; Forever Conscious

Lets face it, there are always going to be people in life that rub us the wrong way, drain our energy or leave us feeling irritated.

As one of my favourite poets, Rumi says- if you are irritated by every rub, how will you be polished?

Seemingly negative people or influences come into our lives not to harass us, but to teach us something. We have to remember that we are all connected, so what you observe in someone else exists in you as well.

If you are surrounded by negative influences that you cant really escape like in your work environment or even in your family, there are some things that you can do to protect your energy.


But before we get into these techniques, it is really important to remember that negative people are people too.

Showing love and respect to them is extremely important, because remember- we are all connected. How you treat another person is reflected in how you treat yourself and the world.

Cannabis Reduces Prescription Drug Use "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Marco Torres; Prevent Disease

From 2000 to 2015, half a million people died from prescription drug overdoses. Stories continue to roll in daily about the lives claimed by prescription and non-prescription drug overdoses. Cannabis is not only excluded from the overdose drug list, but it reduces the use of dangerous prescription drugs.

Raw cannabis is considered by many experts as a dietary essential. As a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, some classify it as one of the most important plants on earth. The biggest benefits from the plant may come not by smoking it, but rather by consuming it in its raw and natural form.

"If cannabis were discovered in an Amazon rainforests today, people would be clambering to make as much use as they could out of the potential benefits of the plant," said Donald L. Abrams, MD, Chief of Hematology and Oncology at San Francisco General Hospital and Professor of Medicine at the University California. Dr. Abrams is widely known for his research on medical cannabis applications. "Unfortunately, it carries with it a long and not so long history of being a persecuted plant," he added.


"The potential for addiction and health risks associated with using multiple scheduled drugs places additional direct monetary and health costs on patients and healthcare systems due to an increased number of side effects, risky drug interactions, dependency, and overdose" stated University of New Mexico researchers Jacob Miguel Vigil and Sarah See Stith, of a new study titled, Effects of Legal Access to Cannabis on Scheduled II-V Drug Prescriptions, which will be soon released in an upcoming issue of the Journal of American Medical Directors Association.

Arcturians Are Earth's Protectors "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Arcturians | A door has closed behind the flow of consciousness of humanity, and the next will only open when the luggage of a troubled history, far exceeding the present and the planetary sphere, will be left behind.

In this suspended space of consciousness, the duality seems to be extremely unbelievable, the individual consciousness currents being in most cases in the direction of collision rather than in harmony and coexistence.

Metaphorically expressed, humanity at the collective level frees itself from luggage, seeking fever among those crammed there, hoping to keep as much as possible and to force the next door.

Thus we see numerous conflicts between people, institutions, doctrines, and belief systems of any kind.

Polaroid Originals Launches with New OneStep 2 Camera and i-Type Film "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Polaroid is back. Days after teasing a major return to its instant photography roots, Polaroid has just launched Polaroid Originals, a brand new brand dedicated to analog instant photos. Along with the new brand comes a new OneStep 2 camera and the debut of a new film type called i-Type.

This surprising launch comes on the 80th anniversary of the legendary Polaroid brand, which was originally founded by Edwin Land back in 1937. After popularizing instant photography and peaking in the early 1990s, Polaroid went bankrupt in 2001 and ended instant film production in 2008.

The instant film type was brought back by The Impossible Project, which purchased the last Polaroid factory in The Netherlands before it disappeared. Back in May, The Impossible Project purchased Polaroids brand and intellectual property, and today were seeing the result of that acquisition: the end of the Impossible brand and the rebirth of the Polaroid brand.

Bye bye, Impossible. Hello, Polaroid Originals.

The OneStep 2 Camera

The new Polaroid Originals OneStep 2 is a new instant camera thats the spiritual successor to the iconic Polaroid OneStep, which helped popularize the medium 4 decades ago. Like the original camera, the OneStep 2 is a fully analog camera thats compatible with both 600 film and a new i-Type film.

Features of the OneStep 2 include a high-quality lens (2 foot to infinity), a 60-day battery life, a built-in flash, a self-timer, a rechargeable 1100mAh lithium-ion...

Christianity dying off in Germany, Replaced with Islam "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Christianity in Germany, and indeed in all of Europe, is dying. There are about 47 million Catholics and Protestants combined in Germany, representing roughly 60 percent of the German population, but that number is falling by 500,000 a year through deaths alone, according to the Gatestone Institute. All across Germany, churches now sit mostly empty on Sunday mornings, and its a problem for Catholics

and Protestants alike. In the year 2016 alone, the German Catholic Church lost 162,093 faithful attendees and closed 537 parishes, according to data from the German Bishops Conference. One-quarter of all German Catholic communities that existed in 1996 have now closed. Similarly, in 2016, 340,000 German Protestants died while 190,000 people left the church. Only 25,000 people joined the church. READ MORE

Shape-shifting bacteria spotted on International Space Station "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Bacterial cells treated with a common antibiotic have been spotted changing shape to survive while aboard the International Space Station (ISS). The way bacteria act in near-zero gravity environments could pose a serious problem for treating astronauts with infections. The clever shape-shifting was detected in bacteria being experimented on in the near-weightlessness of space, and is believed to help

the bacteria survive. An experiment on the common E coli bacteria subjected it to different concentrations of the antibiotic gentamicin sulfate, a drug which kills the bug on Earth. However, in comparison to a control group on Earth, the space bacteria showed a 13-fold increase in cell numbers and a 73% reduction in cell column size. READ MORE

Did the Hurricane Distract You From This Major Sign of the End Times? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(By Dan Celia) As Christians, we know how the story ends. We understand there will be a day when a one-world government will lead us into the end times. As His people and believers in Gods Word, we certainly understand that God reminds us in His Word of where the world is headed. While many have tried to place some sort of timeline on these events, I am not one of those people. Back in 2009, I did write about

what I believed would usher in the end times. However, I wrote this as an economist, not as a theologian. The question now is: are we seeing indications of an end-times scenario? The 2008 financial crisis helped drive home the reality of the end times a bit. It prompted many to think that the one-world government would arrive during their lifetime. READ MORE

Major Disinformation Trend In 2017: Fascists Were The Good Guys? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The following article was originally published by Brandon Smith of Alt-Market.com

fascists

Years ago in 2012, I published a thorough examination of disinformation tactics used by globalist institutions as well as government and political outfits to manipulate the public and undermine legitimate analysts working to expose particular truths of our social and economic conditions. If you have not read this article, titled Disinformation: How It Works, I highly recommend you do so now. It will act as a solid foundation for what I am about to discuss in this article. Without a basic understanding of how lies are utilized, you will be in no position to grasp the complexities of disinformation trends being implemented today.

Much of what I am about to discuss will probably not become apparent for much of the mainstream and portions of the liberty movement for many years to come. Sadly, the biggest lies are often the hardest to see until time and distance are achieved.

If you want to be able to predict geopolitical and economic trends with any accuracy, you must first accept a couple of hard realities. First and foremost, the majority of cultural shifts and fiscal developments within our system are a product of social engineering by an organized collective of power elites. Second, you must understand that this collective is driven by the ideology of globalism the pursuit of total centralization of financial and political control into the hands of a select few deemed as superior concertmasters or maestros. As globalist insider, CFR member and mentor to Bill Clinton, Carroll Quigley, openly admitted in his book Tragedy And Hope:

Move to open U.S. Atlantic coast to oil drilling meets increased opposition "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The Trump Administration has taken steps to open up the United States Atlantic waters to offshore oil exploration and drilling, sparking fierce resistance up and down the coast. For instance, Timothy OBrien, a self-described angler and sportsman who is president of Tycoon Tackle, Inc. and serves on the Ecosystem and Ocean Planning Advisory Panel of the Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council, wrote in an op-ed in June that My business and my customers businesses will be hit hard if the exploration and drilling for oil off the Atlantic Coast goes forward. But it is not just angling that is at risk, the entire coastal economy and way of life is under threat. OBriens most immediate concern is that, before any drilling can begin, surveys of the Atlantic coastal region would first be performed by seismic airgun blasting. Continually blasting intense bursts of noise into the water every 10 to 12 seconds in order to determine what resources might lie beneath the ocean floor, seismic airguns are so loud they can be heard underwater as far as 2,500 miles away and the blasting can go on for weeks or even months straight. Studies have shown that this type of disturbance can decrease catch rates of commercial fish species by an average of 50 percent over thousands of square miles, OBrien notes. Further, these blasts are known to harm marine mammals and other species that are vital to a healthy ecosystem. OBrien is far from alone in his opposition to the Trump

The Vampire Problem: A Brilliant Thought Experiment Illustrating the Paradox of Transformative Experience "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Many of [lifes] big decisions involve choices to have experiences that teach us things we cannot know about from any other source but the experience itself.


The Vampire Problem: A Brilliant Thought Experiment Illustrating the Paradox of Transformative Experience

To be human is to suffer from a peculiar congenital blindness: On the precipice of any great change, we can see with terrifying clarity the familiar firm footing we stand to lose, but we fill the abyss of the unfamiliar before us with dread at the potential loss rather than jubilation over the potential gain of gladnesses and gratifications we fail to envision because we havent yet experienced them. Emerson knew this when he contemplated our resistance to change and the key to true personal growth: People wish to be settled; only as far as they are unsettled is there any hope for them. Rilke, too, knew it when he considered how great upheavals bring us closer to ourselves: That is at bottom the only courage that is demanded of us: to have courage for the most strange, the most singular and the most inexplicable that we may encounter.

When faced with the most transformative experiences, we are ill-equipped to even begin to imagine the nature and magnitude of the transformation but we must again and again challenge ourselves to transcend this elemental failure of the imagination if we are to reap the rewards of any transformative experience.

In Transformative Experience (public library), philosopher L.A. Paul illustrates this paradox and examines how we are to unbind ourselves from it in a simple, elegant thought experiment: If you were offered the chance to become a vampire painlessly and without inflicting pain on others, gaining incredible superpowers in exchange for relinquishing your human existence, with...

Weather Channel Makes Shock Claim That Meteorologists Saw A Face In A Satellite Image Of Hurricane Irma "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A senior meteorologist at The Weather Channel is claiming that a satellite image of Hurricane Irma that comes from NASAs earth science office has an embedded face. Some say that it kind of looks like a dinosaur, others believe that it looks like a pig, and yet others seem to think that it sort of resembles an elephant. Since most hurricanes have a clearly defined eye, all it really takes to make a face is to find a mouth on a satellite image somewhere. So I can understand what the guys over at the Weather Channel are saying, but it is not the type of claim that I would make.

Bride Invites Rescue Puppies To Be 'Bouquets' At Her Wedding "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

It was Samantha Clark's big day but she found a way to share her spotlight with a group of adorable dogs who needed it most.

Rather than keep with tradition and give her bridesmaids bouquets to carry down the aisle, Clark invited adoptable puppies from a local rescue group to fill in for flowers instead.

"I have three dogs of my own," Clark told The Dodo. "I originally wanted to incorporate them, but they already have a home and plenty of love. I wanted to incorporate animals that needed both: love and a home."

With that in mind, Clark reached out to AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport, an Iowa-based organization that works to find families for homeless pets. The group had just taken in more than 100 animals impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, so they were more than happy to have a venue to encourage people to adopt. And they had the perfect fluffy candidates in mind to play the part of the bridesmaids' bouquets.

Jen Storm's Fire Starters is a graphic novel published by Highwater Press in 2017. Its gorgeous illustrations are by Scott B. Henderson; Donovan Yaciuk did the colours. Here's the description:

As the investigation goes forward, community attitudes are revealed, and the truth slowly comes to light.

7 Fiction Books to Empower the Nonfiction Soul "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

All good books have one thing in common they are truer than if they had really happened. ~Ernest Hemingway

I think that most of us, anyway, read these stories that we know are not true because were hungry for another kind of truth: the mythic truth about human nature in general, the particular truth about those life-communities that define our own identity, and the most specific truth of all: our own self-story. Fiction, because it is not about someone who lived in the real world, always has the possibility of being about oneself. ~Orson Scott Card

1.) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho:

We are travelers on a cosmic journey: stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. ~Paulo Coelho

Coelhos short fiction (only 163 pages), The Alchemist, is an inspirational masterpiece. Santiago, a Spanish shepherd boy keeps experiencing repeated dreams about a lost treasure in Egypt. He goes on a lifechanging journey, referred to as accomplishing his Personal Legend, after receiving sage advice and some magic stones from an old king. His journey takes him across the Mediterranean and through the Sahara Desert, where he experiences tribal wars, falling in love, and the secrets of alchemy.

A running theme in the novel is: When you really want something, the universe always conspires in your favor. But no amount of description can fully encapsulate the magic of this story. Written with soul, it must be read to really understand the deep feeling of destiny inherent within it. It runs the gambit on spiritual lessons: everything from courage to the language of the heart, from perseverance to the interconnectedness of all things. An awe-inspiring novel that helps us escape reality by teaching us how reality works.

2.) Gods Debris: A Thought Experiment by Scott Adams:

The human mind is a delusion generator, not a window to truth. ~Scott Adams

From the creator of Dilbert, comes this unique and thought-provoking novel that takes the reader on a journey into Gods debris, which is basically the primordial matter of the universe (quarks and leptons and such) leftover since the Big Bang. The novel is based upon the precept of pandeism, which is the theological doctrine that combines pantheism and deism.

Richard Gerstl, Self-Portraits of a Tortured Soul "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Nude_Self-Portrait_with_Palette_Richard_GerstlOn the 14th of September 1883, Austrian painter and draughtsman Richard Gerstl was born in Vienna; he is remembered for his insightful portraits and haunting self-portraits. He was born into a wealthy bourgeois family as the son of Emil Gerstl, a Jewish merchant, and Maria Pfeiffer, a Catholic woman who later converted to the faith. Against the wishes of his father, Gerstl became involved in the visual arts. In 1898 he attended the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, but became an anti-secessionist rebel, who did not manage to have his own exhibition during his lifetime as he clearly distanced himself from Secessionism. Today Gerstl is best known for his highly stylized heads executed in a raw form of expressionism using pastels, like Oskar Kokoschka.

Early on in his career, Gerstl was interested in philosophy and music and established friendships with composers such as Mahler, von Zemlinsky  and Schoenberg. Whilst acting as an art tutor to the latter, Gerstl fell...

SAN FRANCISCO Vladimir Nabokov once quipped that art is a magical deception. A show of new work by Bay Area artist Lindsey White gives the famed lepidopterists dictum a run for its money, using the uncanny, screwball gestures of magic and comedy. White, a recipient of SFMOMAs 2017 SECA Art Award, spent a year considering the intersections of art, humor, and magic, culminating in a wry exhibition that artfully challenges taboos and perceptions of the ordinary, while reconsidering the nature of representation itself.

Britains homeless welcome the iPhone X "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

At a modest 1,149, the iPhone X is this years must have accessory for the destitute; alongside a dog, a copy of the Big Issue and the smell of wee. The new device comes with inbuilt GPS to remind you where you used to live and a poo emoji to tell you how shit your life has become.

Despite a 60% rise in homelessness, of which over 120,000 are children, those living in temporary accommodation will be able to use the ample 5.8 inch display as an umbrella or a rudimentary lean-to. While the homelessness problem costs the UK economy over 1bn a year, it is still cheaper than the average iPhone contract.

Face recognition may be challenging as the homeless are prone to growing beards and loosing teeth. One tramp noted: As a discerning hobo, Im naturally attracted to the fact it has more custom features than Samsung. Ill certainly be switching mobile contracts, the moment I can liquidate my share portfolio.

A Government spokesman commented on the 134% increase in rough sleepers: There are many benefits to being homeless except of course, actual house benefits. For instance, the chances of being burned to death in a tower block is virtually nil. And if you sleep in a Apple shop doorway youll be first in line for the sales.

Graffiti and Its Reflection on Culture "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

There is a book called Graffiti Lives: Beyond the Tag written by Baruch College Sociologist, Gregory J. Snyder, that argues that graffiti writers cant be understood when looked at as simply people who vandalize and wreak social disorder. They also need to be viewed as members of a subculture that is diverse and who use the experiences they have to build careers that are legitimate.

Are they though? Lets take a quick look at a bit of graffiti and how it reflects on culture, or maybe how culture influences the art.

Vaping

More and more people are mobbing from smoking cigarettes to vaping. People are starting to vape when they never smoked before too. This is because you can get the vape juice without any nicotine at all in it. The thing about vaping is that you can get any type of vape box you want so the liquid choices are as diverse as the people using them. You might be wondering exactly what that has to do with graffiti too. You can find vape shops all over the world with graffiti art on them, sometimes inside and sometimes out. This popular counter culture choice is becoming more mainstream, but the art is still pure graffiti.

Hillary Clinton Thinks Moral Of 1984 Is That We Should Trust The Government And Media "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons campaign memoir includes a questionable interpretation of the central lesson of George Orwells novel 1984, namely that individuals should trust those in positions of authority.

Clintons memoir What Happened, released Tuesday, suggests the goal of the government-sanctioned torture featured prominently in Orwells novel is to erode trust in the authoritarian overlords who control all aspects of society. This perspective is diametrically opposed to the central lesson most readers have drawn from the book since it was published in 1949.

Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos. This is what happens in George Orwells classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, when a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust toward exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, ex-perts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves. For Trump, as with so much he does, its about simple dominance.

There is no shortage of attempts to conform the lessons of 1984 to a range of modern political contexts, but Clintons interpretation stretches the broad limits of literary interpretation.

The origin of Clintons counterintuitive interpretation of the work is unclear. Somehow, after reading a terrifying account of government overreach creeping into every aspect of human life and choice, Clinton drew the lesson that individuals should be able to trust the government, and societys various information gatekeepers.

A number of Clintons fellow Democrats have condemned the contents of the campaign memoir as unnecessarily divisive and derided her for the timing of its release. One former Clinton staffer told Politico that Clintons book release and the resulting news cycle was her final torture for the party.

Intercostal Muscle Strain: Causes, Symptoms and Treatments "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Intercostal muscles are found between each of your ribs and provide support to your upper body and assist in breathing. Sudden jerking movements or overstretching can strain the intercostal muscles resulting in mild to severe chest and back pain. Intercostal muscle strains can cause localized but debilitating pain in and around your chest area, or the pain can radiate to other areas of your body such as your shoulder blades and arms.

There are many ways that you can strain the muscles between your ribs. For example, over stretching or injuring your arms while playing sports, suffering an injury or trauma to your back or chest, or repetitive strain injuries can all cause intercostal muscle pain. There have even been cases when chronic coughing or sneezing have strained these rib muscles.

If you have strained your intercostal muscles, you may have extreme chest pain when going about your daily activities. The muscle pain in your chest or back could become worse when the ribs are touched or moved, or your rib cage could be tender to touch. Because intercostal muscles move with your lungs, breathing could even become painful because of the muscle strain.

In the article, you will learn about the important function your intercostal muscles have in supporting your rib cage. You will also find how and what causes intercostal muscle strain, how to prevent tearing, stretching or straining your chest muscles, and how to treat muscle pain.

What are Intercostal Muscles?

Intercostal muscles are a group of 11 muscles on each side of the rib cage that connect one rib to another. The muscles expand and shrink with breathing and support your rib cage. The intercostal muscles are made up from 3 layers called the external intercostal, internal intercostal, and the innermost intercostal muscles. Running through these muscles is a series of nerves called the intercostal nerves.

The journal Physiological Reviews states that all 3 layers of the intercostal muscles have a role to play in breathing. As you exhale air the internal intercostals move, and when you inhale its the external intercostal muscles that move the rib cage.1

Symptoms of Intercostal Muscle Strain

Any strain or injury to the muscles that connect your ribs can restrict these muscles and cause pain under your breast and around the chest. According to a chiropractic clinic, the pain can be mild to severe and can be the result of an injury, bad posture, or come on without any warning.2

Because the intercostal muscles and nerves are connected to your ribs, you may also feel pain...

Harvard pays students to host 'brave spaces' for social justice "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Harvard University is paying students to facilitate brave spaces on social justice, diversity, and inclusion issues at the elite institution.

According to a job posting on the schools website, the university is looking to hire 20 Diversity Peer Educators (DPEs), who will be paid $11 per hour to commit to a year-long program for hosting peer-to-peer dialogues that address a wide range of social justice, diversity, and inclusion issues and topics.

"Do you wish that Harvard had more programs to promote inclusion and belonging?"   

Created by the Harvard Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OEDI), the program vows to benefit the university by fostering brave spaces across campus where students can advocate and amplify the voices that need to be heard.

[RELATED: University paying students to be Social Justice Advocates]

We believe that every student should have a stake in creating a community to which they have a right to belong, the website for the program notes.

Successful applicants will attend weekly trainings and staff meetings, and must commit to at least four-to-six hours of work per week in the DPE office alongside their supervisors, who will be Harvard administrators.

While no experience with social justice work is required, applicants must be able to articulate social justice, diversity, and inclusion issues while keeping abreast of current events on campus and the general campus climate.

Upon completion of their training, students will be dispatched to facilitate events and discussions on various social justice issues.

For example, when OEDI opens its satellite office in Grays, a freshman dorm, peer educators will be required to work at least two night shifts per month to promote social justice to their freshmen peers.

[RELATED: University offers students funding for social justice projects]

While it is unclear when Harvard began paying DPEs, the program has existed since at least the fall of 2016. In previous years, peer educators have hosted events on issues such as Unders...

When reached for comment on Senator Roberts demands Communications Minister Mitch Fifield replied: Thats better than we expected from One Nation. Only having to cover the ABC studios in tin foil.

Thousands Of People Around The World Are Willingly Implanting The Mark Of The Beast In Their Bodies "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Documenta, the revered German quinquennial whose 14th edition draws to a close in Kassel this weekend, is in trouble. Exorbitant costs incurred during this years exhibition, which for the first time was split between its hometown of Kassel and Athens, have left the organizers grappling with a 7 million (~$8.3 million) deficit. According to German newspaper HNA, Kassels municipal government and the state of Hesse have each agreed to step in to serve as guarantors on 3.5 million loans taken out by Documenta und Museum Fridericianum gGmbH, the nonprofit that organizes the exhibition.

Documenta is inextricably linked with Kassel, the citys mayor, Christian Geselle, said in a statement. We want Documenta to continue in Kassel as a world-class exhibition of contemporary art.

26 HILARIOUS SPIRITUAL MEMES THAT ARE JUST WAY TOO TRUE "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

We live in a wondrous time. Within arms reach, we have access to endless information on any and every subject, including the lives of our friends and family. Whether we spend our time scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, one thing is for certain  this seemingly wasted time serves to help us release the stresses of the day and enjoy a good laugh or two.While millennials are constantly criticized for what older generations perceive as a lack of involvement and initiative in making this world a better place, this is not based in fact, and its thanks to us that we have access to the ever-popular meme: a humorous image, video, piece of text, etc., that is copied (often with slight variations) and spread rapidly by Internet users.

I am therefore happy to say a nice thank you (and youre welcome) for millennials creating the hilarious images that are splayed across our screens.

While some may argue that this part of the internet serves only to distract us from important matters, I think its safe to say that, amongst all the terror and natural disasters highlighted on the news every day, a little daily humour never hurt anyone.

If there is anything the following memes have in common, its that we can all relate when it comes to our spiritual journeys our expectation of the process certainly dont match what actually transpires and, while life can be a little tough, there is purpose in it all!

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) Could balancing our internal energies affect the earth? Science suggests that, through the principle of sympathetic resonance or entrainment, the earth's field influences our own, and in turn, our individual fields influence Gaia. While mainstream science has yet to acknowledge informational transference and resulting energy state changes, the ancients described this principle in the axiom: As Above So Below, As Below So Above. To be sure, the earth has a much greater impact on us than we do on her, but our influence is nonetheless real. And there's a wealth of science to confirm the theory that we are indeed receiving and transmitting information telepathically with our earth-mother.

Guinea Pigs Abandoned In Broken Cage On Side Of The Road "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Someone was out walking one day when they noticed a battered, broken cage sitting in the grass on the side of the road. They didnt think anything of it at first until they realized there were two guinea pigs inside the cage.

The Scottish SPCA was contacted immediately, and Inspector Gillian Dick came out to rescue the poor, terrified little guinea pigs. 

Since the cage was broken, the guinea pigs could have gotten out if theyd wanted to, and so its incredibly lucky that someone spotted them and called for help when they did.

This was a very cruel act and the pair could have easily escaped their cage and been injured or even killed by a car, Dick said in a press release. Were very glad they were rescued before they came to harm. Whoever dumped these poor guys also couldn't have known they would be found by someone who would help them.

The two guinea pigs were quickly taken to the Scottish SPCAs center in Glasgow, and are now settled in and doing well. Staffers named them AJ and Pete, and will care for them until theyre ready to be adopted into the forever home they deserve. 

We are asking anyone in the area who may know who dumped them in this way to contact us as soon as possible, Dick said.

Little Baboon Saved From Smugglers Learns To Trust His Rescuers "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Just after a little olive baboon was seized from a smuggler in Cameroon back in April, no one knew what kind of damage had been done to him.

He was brought to Limbe Wildlife Center, where experts assessed what he needed most. "Although he spent little time in captivity and was in relatively good body condition at arrival, proper behavioral rehabilitation procedures will be required before we can introduce him to the group," the rescue center wrote

Four trained caretakers interacted with the baboon, whom they named Kuma. They focused on stimulating his curiosity and his playfulness to keep him healthy and close to his natural tendencies.

"During the first work sessions, [he] spent most of his time sleeping on the caretaker," the rescue wrote. "In such circumstances, we give time to the animal to rest as it is a way to build a trust relationship while releasing accumulated stress."

By July, Kuma was already more confident. Even though he was less than 1 year old and still needed to be bottle-fed milk, he was curious and playful in his enclosure, where he was quarantined until it was safe enough to introduce him to other baboons.

"Our quarantine staff spend time with him in his cage several times a day to feed him, to play and to groom as an adult olive baboon would do," the rescue center wrote. "He loves that!"...

Baby Great White Shark Washes Onto Shore And People Know Just What To Do "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

In the past, when sharks have washed onto the beach, it hasnt always ended well for the animals. Selfie-obsessed people have been known to drag them onto the sand to pose with them in front of cameras, which often kills the sharks. But when a juvenile great white shark washed onto a popular beach earlier this week in Sydney, Australia, beachgoers knew exactly the right thing to do.

After finding the male great white shark (estimated to be 2 or 3 years old) flopping around on the sand, people contacted Manly Sea Life Sanctuary, a conservation center that rescues and rehabilitates ocean animals. A rescue team quickly arrived to help the distressed shark.

Sharks cant breathe without swimming, so getting the shark back into water was of the utmost importance. At the same time, the team needed to make sure the shark wasnt injured or sick, so they didnt want to put him right back into the ocean. Instead, they moved him into a nearby ocean pool, which was filled with natural seawater.

Rob Townsend, the life sciences manager at Manly Sea Life Sanctuary, started calling the shark Fluffy as a joke but soon everyone was doing it. That was me just chatting to some kids on the side of the pool and it just stuck, Townsend told The Dodo.

Prototyping the Future of DevTools "IndyWatch Feed Education"

12 years ago web development had almost no tooling. There was no easy way to inspect the DOM, monitor the network or even console.log things.

Web development in 2002debugging with alerts. From Pure JavaScript (ISBN 0672321416)

These dark times can be summed up by this quote from Joe Hewitt, creator of Firebug and the Console API:

Im always surprised to hear people call FireBug innovative. It shows just how weak the web developers toolbox has become that something as old school as a console would be considered novel.

The creation of Firebug in 2006 marked the beginning of modern web development tooling. Today, each major browser ships with fantastic built-in tools for web developers. Behind each DevTools there is a dedicated team of developers, designers and product managers pushing it forward.

As DevTools became important, they started competing with one another and gaining tons of new capabilities while trying to keep up with the evolving platform.

Firefox DevTools were first to feature a grid inspectorhttps://youtu.be/dU7xtnzfqxQ

Firebugs legacy

I believe that nowadays, we are blessed to have one of the best tools in the industry. In fact, our tooling got so good that it is constantly forked and adapted to work with other platforms.

One thing that always struck me though is how the original concepts introduced by Joe in Firebug still live on, almost unchanged, in todays DevTools.

Hillary Whines About Being Held Accountable For Benghazi

Remember this moment?


It seems Hillary Clinton hasn't changed her opinion about the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. 

During an interview with NBC's The Today Show Wednesday morning, Clinton complained about the fallout of the attack, which left four Americans dead, because it hurt her politically. 

"Boy, it was turned into a political football. And it was aimed at undermining my credibility, my record, my accomplishments," Clinton said.

Benghazi Contractors: Hillary's State Department Told Us Not To Cooperate With Congressional Investigators

During an interview with The Today Show Wednesday morning former Democrat presidential candidate and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton whined about the 2012 Benghazi attacks, which left four Americans dead, having an impact on her political prospects. 

But late yesterday Fox News broke a new story on Benghazi, in which two contractors say Clinton's State Department not only ignored their assessments the consulate was unsecured and unprepared for the September 11, 2012 anniversary, but that they were told to shut up and not to cooperate with Congressional investigators about the attack in the aftermath. 

Security at the State Department's Benghazi compound was so dire that another contractor was brought in to clean up the mess just two weeks before the 2012 terror attack and was later pressured to keep quiet by a government bureaucrat under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to two men from the American security company.  

Brad Owens and Jerry Torres, of Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions, say they faced pressure to stay silent and get on the same page with the State Department with regard to the security lapses that led to the deaths of four Americans.

Intuitive Astrology: September New Moon 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The September 19th-20th New Moon falls in the earthy sign of Virgo and will be guiding us on a healing journey.

If you have had a physical complaint or an emotional wound surface in the last few months, the Virgo New Moon is going to inspire you to take action in order to bring your body back into balance.

Virgo energy is all about healing and caring for the mind, body and soul. The mind is the gateway between the body and the soul, which is why tuning into the mind and wading through both conscious and unconscious thoughts is so important on any healing journey.

Under the influence of the September New Moon, we are all being called to really pay attention to the condition of our mind so we can heal and step into our power.

We all have a power state that we can shift into when we have learnt to take care of ourselves and address any nagging or toxic thoughts, and this New Moon is going to be our guide.

The Virgo New Moon is going to bring healing energy to all corners of our lives so we can mend any wounds that may have surfaced.

We are going to have to take the journey within in order to truly understand our thoughts, feelings and what our body may be trying to communicate to us. We are going to have to connect within and come face to face with the truth.

Perhaps take a moment to still your mind and place your hand over your heart center. Ask yourself- What do I really need? What is the most loving thing I can do for myself right now?

The Virgo New Moon is really asking us to put ourselves first and to make our healing a priority. It is also the perfect time to schedule a general check up, or to do something for your health and wellbeing.

There is a harsher energy that may arise over the time of this New Moon as well, that may cause you to treat yourself or others critically or judgementally. It is important that no matter what wounds are surfacing for you that you treat yourself with loving kindness.

Dont be hard on yourself. The most powerful steps you can take on a healing journey is to learn to love yourself and your life, no matter what the circumstances may be.

Finding the joy and learning to laugh and smile are also powerful healers that often go forgotten. Under the influence of this New Moon, dont forget to take time out to do the things you love and to celebrate your life and your body.

Try not to be critical of yourself or demand yourself to take harsh measures when it comes to your health. Move gently and take action when you feel it truly aligns with your heart and soul.

Part of the reason our  bodies get so out of balance is due to stress and the expectations we have to look a certain way or be a certain way. Under th...

1,000 Lines of Colorful Paint Pool into Mesmerizing Puddles at the Venice Biennale "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A post shared by Swatch & Art (@swatchandart) on May 15, 2017 at 12:39am PDT

There's something oddly satisfying about watching paint slowly drip down a canvas. It's unexplainable, yet mesmerizing, to view the viscous pigment crawl its way to the flood, puddling in a colorful mess. English artist Ian Davenport plays with these concepts in his series Poured Lines and Puddle Painting.

Working with a surgeon's precision, Davenport's newest pieceWide Acres of Timesees him covering an aluminum panel with a sequence of more than 1,000 vertical lines of colorful soft body acrylic paint. This multicolored waterfall was created in collaboration with Swatch for the Venice Biennale. The mammoth piece, which measures 14 meters (about 46 feet) wide and almost 4 meters (13 feet) tall, measures up to the immensity of its surroundings in Venice's Giardini pavilion.

Davenport, who is also an avid drummer, is interested in the musical rhythms and how they connect back to the rhythms found in art. Certainly, his soothing sequences of colorful lines possess a controlled, yet random, rhythm that draws viewers in, as they innately respond to the colors.

In an added challenge, Davenport was also asked to create a limited edition Swatch using his signature technique. Experimenting with a circular flow of paint pooling in the center of what would be the watch face, he skillfully married his conte...

Riverview calls on Ottawa to study fluoride in drinking water "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Riverview town council is following Dieppes lead, and calling on the federal government to do a comprehensive study on water fluoridation.

Both Riverview and Dieppe purchase their water from the City of Moncton, which removed fluoride five years ago.

Its been a controversial decision, and dentists in the area are now calling for a return to fluoridated water.

Moncton council is expected to vote Monday on whether to continue the moratorium on fluoride.

Riverview Mayor Ann Seamans said the decision rests with the City of Moncton, but her council is asking for a study by Ottawa to give municipalities some direction.

?It is a concern for some people, so we are asking for the study so that we would actually know the pros and cons of putting fluoride in the water, she told Information Morning Moncton.

Moncton sought study

In 2007, Health Canada assembled experts to investigate the health effects of fluoride in drinking water. The panel reported the next year that below a specific concentration, there was a suitable tradeoff between the dental health benefits of fewer cavities and the risk of dental fluorosis, a condition that appears as mottled enamel.

But the prevalence of mild and very mild fluorosis was not a concern from a health perspective, the panel said.

The panel didnt find evidence of a link between fluoride and other issues, such as cancer, intelligence, bone fracture immunotoxicity, reproductive and developmental toxicity, genotoxicity and neurotoxicity.

Three years later, when Moncton was about to phase out fluoride from the water supply, the city asked the provincial Health Department to complete a study of its own on water fluoridation.

At the time, the province refused and said, the benefits of fluoridation are well-documented for all individuals in the community regardless of age, education, or socioeconomic status.

Whether to fluoridate water in Canada is left to municipalities.

Sees both sides

Seamans, the Riverview mayor, said she has heard from people on both sides of the fluoride debate, and their arguments sounded great.

You can have all the studies you want and you can look at both sides, but we do not have the expertise as a municipal government to make that decision, she said.

Seamans said Riverview will accept whatever decision Moncton council makes on Monday, but she urged other New Brunswick municipalities to join the call for a federal study that would look at both the positive and negative aspects o...

Department of Health reaches milestone in childrens oral health "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The Maryland Department of Healths Office of Oral Health has surpassed 200,000 fluoride varnish applications. The statewide intervention program, launched in 2009, is designed to prevent tooth decay in high-risk children. Through a partnership with Maryland Medicaid, the Office of Oral Health trains medical practitioners to apply fluoride varnish to children ages nine months to 3 years during their routine well-child visits.

Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease found in children, said Dr. Jinlene Chan, acting deputy secretary for the Public Health Services Administration. Fluoride varnish applications help prevent pain and infections that could cause children problems with eating, speaking, learning and playing.

Oral disease affects three out of every five children in the United States, making it more common than asthma. Low-income children suffer five times the number of cavities than their counterparts in middle- and upper-income families. By incorporating this low-cost intervention into routine medical visits, the State of Maryland is providing children with an easy and accessible pathway to prevent cavities and to, by extension, boost their overall health.

Fluoride varnish is a protective coating that is painted on teeth and releases fluoride over time to strengthen teeth and prevent decay. It is applied quickly and easily, making it safe to use on babies from the time their first teeth appear. Protecting baby teeth with fluoride varnish helps children speak more clearly, helps ensure there is enough space in childrens mouths for permanent teeth, and leads to good overall health.

Communities struggle to save Sabahs shrinking mangroves "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

TELAGA, Malaysia The district of Pitas in the Malaysian state of Sabah is situated on the 40-kilometer Bengkoka peninsula on the island of Borneo, stretching east into the South China sea. This forested, hilly area slopes down to the coast along the Telaga River, through ancient mangrove forest. But since the 1980s, it has been increasingly opened up by government-sanctioned development projects; more recently, in 2013, mangrove clearance has resumed for the commercial farming of shrimp (also referred to as prawns). This resurgence has brought the company Sunlight Inno Seafood Company Sdn Bhd, which is supported by the government, into conflict with local communities that depend on the mangroves for their livelihoods. Satellite data from the University of Maryland show heavy tree cover loss in the district of Pitas in northern Sabah between 2001 and 2015, which reflects both deforestation and the harvesting of tree plantations. Blotches of dark pink in mangrove areas indicate the clearance of mangrove forest. The data indicate the Telaga area has been one of the most heavily affected. Data source: Hansen/UMD/Google/USGS/NASA, accessed through Global Forest Watch. Satellite images from Planet Labs show shrimp farms have supplanted much of the mangrove forest around Telaga over the last several years. In response to mangrove clearance, six indigenous Orang Asli communities in the district have come together to form the Group of Six (G6) collective Pitas action committee. It aims to save around 1,000 acres of the remaining mangroves and get this area legally designated under their

Moncton council to decide on whether to restore water fluoridation "IndyWatch Feed Health"

MONCTON, N.B. Despite pleas from dentists to restore fluoride to the water supply in Moncton, N.B., at least one city councillor says hell vote against it when council meets to make a decision next week.

Moncton ended fluoride use in 2011, and local dentist Suzanne Drapeau-McNally says she has seen a dramatic increase in tooth decay among young children ever since.

Children who previously had no cavities, all of a sudden come in and have a higher number of decays, Drapeau-McNally said.

Moncton city council was supposed to make a decision this spring, but Coun. Shawn Crossman asked that the decision be delayed until Sept. 18 to gather more information.

Crossman said he spent the last seven months reading studies and listening to the public, and hasnt seen any evidence to prove that fluoride prevents tooth decay.

Theres nothing there that says fluoride is stopping tooth decay, absolutely nothing, he said.

Theres a much bigger picture here. Sugar is a factor, what do our diets look like, what is the persons overall health? There are other factors that contribute. Fluoride is not going to solve everybodys problems.

Crossman said in fact he has seen information that fluoride can be harmful to very young children.

Drapeau-McNally said fluoride is a natural element that protects tooth enamel against the acids that cause tooth decay, and shes seen no studies to show negative impact of 0.7 parts per million of fluoride in public water supplies.

We have public health across the world and none have found evidence that community water fluoridation is harmful to health, Drapeau-McNally said.

I remain solid that the scientific studies show the results are conclusive it is a win situation to add fluoride to our Moncton water, she said.

Last year, New Brunswicks chief medical officer of health and the New Brunswick Dental Societys board both came out in support of fluoridation.

The value of water fluoridation should not be underestimated. The studies are clear and unequivocal and the benefits of fluoridation are well documented for all individuals in the community regardless of age, education, or socio-economic status, they wrote in a joint statement.

While federal and provincial governments set guidelines for fluoridation, the decision to use fluoride is left up to municipalities.

Brantford, Ont., became the first Canadian community to add fluoride in 1945, and many others followed. Health Canada reported in 2009, the last time it counted, that about 45 per cent of the population was drinking flu...

Bombshell Report Catches Pentagon Falsifying Paperwork For Weapons Transfers To Syrian Rebels "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 

A new bombshell joint report issued by two international weapons monitoring groups Tuesday confirms that the Pentagon continues to ship record breaking amounts of weaponry into Syria and that the Department of Defense is scrubbing its own paper trail. On Tuesday the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) produced conclusive evidence that not only is the Pentagon currently involved in shipping up to $2.2 billion worth of weapons from a shady network of private dealers to allied partners in Syria - mostly old Soviet weaponry - but is actually manipulating paperwork such as end-user certificates, presumably in order to hide US involvement.

The OCCRP and BIRN published internal US defense procurement files after an extensive investigation which found that the Pentagon is running a massive weapons trafficking pipeline which originates in the Balkans and Caucuses, and ends in Syria and Iraq. The program is ostensibly part of the US train, equip, and assist campaign for the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF, a coalition of YPG/J and Arab FSA groups operating primarily in Syria's east). The arms transfers are massive and the program looks to continue for years. According to Foreign Policy's (FP) coverage of the report:

The Department of Defense has budgeted $584 million specifically for this Syrian operation for the financial years 2017 and 2018, and has earmarked another $900 million of spending on Soviet-style munitions between now and 2022. The total, $2.2 billion, likely understates the flow of weapons to Syrian rebels in the coming years.

But perhaps more shocking is the following admission that Pentagon suppliers have links with known criminal networks, also from FP:

According to the report, many of the weapons suppliers  primarily in Eastern Europe but also in the former Soviet republics, including Kazakhstan, Georgia, and Ukraine  have both links to organized crime throughout Eastern Europe and spotty business records.

Woman Accidentally Drives 20 Minutes With Coyote Stuck To Car "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Last week, Georgie Knoxs morning commute was disturbed in one of the worst ways possible. In the early hours of September 3, a coyote darted in front of her car and she didnt have time to swerve.

I heard a crunch and believed I ran over and killed it, Knox wrote in a Facebook post. Upon stopping at a traffic light by my work, a construction woman notified me that there was, in fact, a coyote still embedded in my car.

Knox immediately got out of her car, and couldnt believe what she saw. Not only was an adult coyote trapped in her cars grille  but he was alive. This poor little guy was looking up and blinking at me, Knox explained in her post.

The coyote had likely been lodged in the grille for 20 to 25 minutes, hitching a ride as Knox drove from her home in Airdrie, Canada, to Calgary at highway speeds. Luckily, the conscientious motorist knew exactly what she needed to do to save the helpless animal.

Knox called the Alberta Fish and Wildlife Department, and in a matter of minutes a responding officer was on the scene, along with the Calgary police as backup. The officer has been involved in many rescues over the years, but this is the first time hed seen a coyote stuck into a car like that, Brendan Cox, public affairs officer with Alberta Fish and Wildlife, told The Dodo.

The officer was quickly able to extract the coyote by pushing in the plastic grille and pulling him out of the front of the vehicle. After a careful assessment, the officer concluded that, unlike Knoxs car, the coyote was unharmed.

With no signs of injury or disease detected, the coyote was released back into the same approximate area from which he came but, this time, away from traffic. Knoxs Facebook post detailing the amazing rescue has quickly gone viral, with nearly 400,000 likes and 200,000 shares in just four days.

Hypnotic Videos of a Japanese Potter at Work "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Abe Haruya Japanese Pottery

Japanese potter Abe Haruya has been gaining recognition not only for his intricately patterned ceramics, but also for the hypnotic behind the scenes videos he posts to Instagram. What started as him playing with his wife's smartphone has turned into a large following that can't stop watching him shape and mold pieces of porcelain.

Haruya often works using a technique known as yokoku, which literally translates to relief. Here, patterns are carved into a mold and then pressed onto the tableware that's been shaped on the potter's wheel. He also meticulously scraps away clay to create detailed patterns along the surface of vases or edges of decorative bowls.

It's impossible not to find soothing joy in watching Haruya manipulate the clay, letting it melt away like butter until the piece reaches its final shape. And as he shaves away layers of dry clay to form decorative patterns, the sounds are almost as mesmerizing as the action itself. Completely dedicated to his craft, he can often be found working on pieces for up to 3 months. His classic, beautiful tableware is available worldwide via Hanada.

Japanese potter Abe Haruya has gained a surprising following after posting short videos of himself working with clay to Instagram.

Dog Won't Take Eyes Off New Sister As Family Flees From Hurricane "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Arabella may be just a few days old, but she's already learned a great deal about the love of dogs.

Born last week to the Kizer family in south Florida, Arabella and her parents had little time to settle in after returning home from the hospital. Hurricane Irma was brewing off the coast, but initial forecasts predicted they were relatively safe from the full force of the storm.

Then that all changed.

"We had no plans to evacuate until the hurricane turned and headed straight for our home in St. Petersburg," Nick Kizer, Arabella's father, told The Dodo. "My wife and I decided it was too dangerous to keep her in Florida, so we packed up and headed for Tennessee."

With that, the young family loaded up their car with Arabella and their dogs for the long journey north. It was a stressful ordeal having to leave home so suddenly with a newborn in tow, but Nick and his wife soon discovered that they weren't the only ones who considered Arabella's safety their top priority.

Two of the family's dogs rode in the passenger seat as Nick drove. Arabella's mom, Dezzy, stayed with the baby in the backseat along with their 8-year-old French bulldog, Ziggy. 

The arrangement was cramped, to be sure, but having Ziggy so near to Arabella turned out to be a blessing in disguise.

"Ziggy has always taken to puppies but we have never seen him around a newborn. We had been a little worried with how he would act around her, since this was the first time they were in a close space," Nick said. "[But] Ziggy just watched over my daughter Arabella the whole trip."

Growing Opossum Siblings Still Insist On Sleeping In Their Baby Crib "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Three little opossum siblings were snuggled in their mom's pouch when she was struck by a car last month in Oklahoma. The mom died, but, fortunately, the siblings survived.

They were brought to WildCare Oklahoma so that wildlife rehabilitators could help the orphans grow up strong and eventually be released back into the wild.

It was there that the siblings discovered their affinity for sleeping all curled up together in a basket. Rescuers call them the "basket kids."

Credit: WildCare Oklahoma

The rescue center has accepted 1,029 opossums into its care so far this year and currently has 124 opossums getting the love and shelter they need to get strong.

Most of these opossums elect to sleep in hammocks. But these siblings always prefer the comfort of their little basket, even though they're getting bigger.

And something else has made basket space hard to come by a new friend.

A few weeks after the siblings arrived at the rescue center, a single orphaned opossum was taken in. "After a brief introduction and a meal, they climbed up into the basket together," Rondi Large, director of WildCare Oklahoma, told The Dodo. "They quickly accepted him in to their family."

Now all four try to squeeze together into the basket in one very dense baby opossum pile.

The rescue center just released a group of opossums who had grown strong enough to be wild again. And these special guys aren't too far behind them. They're quickly outgrowing their beloved basket.

Orlando Hotel Welcomes 900 Dogs And Their Families During Hurricane "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

As Hurricane Irma approached Florida, many families in areas that were supposed to be heavily affected decided that the safest thing to do would be to evacuate and check into a hotel somewhere. Of course, many of these families also had pets, and none of them wanted to leave their beloved furbabies behind and one hotel was happy to welcome anyone and everyone running from the storm, pets and all. 

The Hyatt Regency Orlando always considers itself pet-friendly, but it took that policy to the next level when it welcomed over 900 dogs and other pets, along with their families, to take shelter from the hurricane. The hotel typically has policies in place to handle guests with pets, but it made some amendments to those policies in order to make things easier for the stranded families. 

We proudly welcomed over 4,500 guests and over 900 dogs during Hurricane Irma, Katie Satava, marketing manager at the Hyatt Regency Orlando, told The Dodo. Our property is typically pet-friendly and we issue a $150 cleaning charge for guests traveling with pets. With Hurricane Irma, we lowered the cleaning fee to $50 due to the circumstances. We have dog-walking stations located in areas outside of our hotel, but with the winds and heavy rains we conveniently moved these stations to right outside of the lobby doors, beyond the valet, for guests to take their animals out with minimal effects from the elements.

Everyone staying at the hotel greatly appreciated how accommodating the hotel was, and at any given moment during the storm, dozens of pets could be seen hanging out in the lobby, happily making new friends and enjoying their impromptu vacations. 

Most of the pets staying at the hotel didnt seem at all fazed by the storm, and actually seemed to be enjoying themselves

Indonesia: Land Rights Struggles Intensify "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

It is cold and late on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Huddled around a map, a group of elders are planning their battle strategy. In a milestone victory last year, they were promised rights to the land their village has controlled for generations, but today they have had bad news. The local inspector wants to slice off a piece of the forest where they harvest benzoin a substance like frankincense and give it to a large pulp company. They see this as a betrayal.

The elders debate in a mix of languages Batak and bahasa Indonesia while sipping tea and planning how they will resume the fight the next day. For years now, almost every day has involved this kind of planning.

We continue the battle. Its the only option, says Arnold Lumban Batu, as the group confers with two members of a local community rights organisation. Honestly, many of us would rather die than lose.

Members of the small Pandumaan-Sipituhuta indigenous community are at the centre of a historic struggle that just might transform the rules of capitalism in Indonesia, affecting tens of millions of people. Along with a handful of other communities, they have cited indigenous rights provisions in the constitution, and lobbied to secure President...

Uncovering the Past: Feasting Halls, Viking Warriors, and Fake News "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As some Pagans and Heathens attempt to revive ancient or indigenous religions they often rely on the work of historians, primary texts and archaeologists. For this reason, when something new pops up that challenges long held academic ideas on cultural or religious practice, we pay attention. Here are some of the new(er) finds making waves in archaeological circles.

Did the Ark of the Covenant contain Pagan Gods?

Archaeologists have long looked for the Ark of the Covenant, a large case the Bible says contains the broken pieces of the Ten Commandments. Yet some are now positing that if the ark is found it will more likely be found in Kiryath Jearim, not the city of David, and contain statues of Pagan gods.

Scholars say that the Bible was written by several authors over a long period of time and that the portions detailing the arks removal from Kiryath Jearim to Davids city were more recent additions. In fact, they now suspect that the ark may not have been moved at all.

These same scholars also note that persons living during the time period when the ark was thought to exist either worshiped Canaanite gods like Baal and El or the early Israelite gods Yahweh and Asherah.

So why do they think the ark could contain statues of Pagan gods rather than the Ten Commandments? Throughout the Levant, it was common practice for pre-Islamic Arabs to carry chests that contain two sacred stones or statues of Pagans gods. These items were later replaced with copies of the Koran. So the ark, mentioned in the Bible, may have likewise contained statues.

Baal was a god associated with war and fertility. The Ark of the Covenant was carried by Israelites into battle and thought to have supernatural powers to rally troops to victory. The Bible also tells the story of Hannah, the Prophet Samuels mother, whose sterility is cured by the Ark.

The Bibles presentation of the Israelites as strict monotheists is also being corrected by archaeologists and scholars. They are now thought to have been a polytheist religious society slowly evolving and incorporating influences and ideas from surrounding cultures.

Perhaps if the ark is found, it may contain statues of Pagan gods and shards of the Ten Commandments.

Pagans were feasting in Israel

A 3200 year old Pagan feasting hall has been found in Israel. Archaeologists were initially hesitant to classify the hall as having religiou...

California Woman Busted With Illegal Gun: A Stock-less 10/22 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

ruger-10-22

California woman Leticia Sept was taken into custody after officers on patrol encountered her near a recreational vehicle that was parked illegally and found her with the firearm.  The illegal gun was a stockless Ruger 10/22, and thanks to gun laws, shes in a lot of trouble with the government.

Police in Fresno arrested the woman Monday after they found her in possession of a .22LR rifle that came up a little short on their tape measure. Her trouble wasnt with the fact the rifle had no stock, although it didnt slip past the more gun savvy out there. California law requires rifles to be at least 26 inches long, and this particular rifle was only 24 inches in length. But the federal government has regulations on SBRs too.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives considers a weapon made from a rifle if such weapon as modified has an overall length of less than 26 inches or a barrel or barrels of less than 16 inches in length, to be regulated under the NFA.

According to Guns.com, an inmate search at the facility shows Sept is still in custody as of Tuesday morning. Her bail set at $12,000. Officers also recovered composite knuckles and an illegal narcotic from Sept, and she was booked into the Fresno County Jail on charges of misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia and two weapons violations a misdemeanor for the knuckles and a felony charge on the SBR.

So much for shall not be infringed.  Although it stands to reason that the cops were looking into the possession of the narcotics, the illegal weapon just compounded the issue with the state.

Robert E. Lee Elementary in Tampa is burnt to the ground "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

  • Robert E. Lee Elementary School, the subject of controversy lately because of its namesake, caught fire Tuesday night. [Courtesy of Renee King]

The oldest magnet school in Hillsborough County, which some school board members were trying to rename as part of a nationwide movement to remove Confederate symbols, burned down on Tuesday night as hundreds of residents watched and children cried.

"Lord have mercy, Jesus," said Erica Claitt, whose 9-year-old niece attended the school until recently. "It's a historical school."

PREVIOUS COVERAGE: Hillsborough to move slowly on name change for school honoring Robert E. Lee

The school at 305 E Columbus Dr. was built in 1906 and was now called the Lee Elementary Magnet School of World Studies and Technology. Its 330 students and 49 staffers haven't been in school this week because all Hillsborough County schools were closed in advance of Hurricane Irma.

The school was not used as a shelter during Irma, which residents said knocked out power in the surrounding neighborhoods. Power was restored Tuesday evening, residents said, then they saw smoke coming from the roof and fire engines racing in.

The fire was reported at 6:46 p.m., and firefighters were on scene five minutes later. The neighborhoods soon lost power again.

Crowds gathered for blocks around and watched firefighters try to tamp down the blaze from afar. They set up three water cannons on the ground and used ladder trucks to aim two more from above.

Flames could be seen shooting out of the second floor windows of the three-story building as streams of water were poured onto the crumbling roof, which was brand-new. The building also has hardwood floors, adding to the kindling.

"I'm in awe," said Bia Harris, who was house-sitting for a friend across Columbus Drive. "It's incredible. Devastating, but incredible."

Tampa Fire Rescue spokesman Jason Penny said the first firefighters to arrive quickly called in more units.

"When firefighters arrived, they found heavy smoke and flames coming out of the north side roof of the building," he said. "They started fighting the fire and the incident commander immediately decided that they needed to call a second alarm to bring in more units in particular, aerial units, because this is a three-story, brick building."

I punched Ryan Gosling in the face. Ryan Goslings face was where it should not have been.

His job was to be out of the range of the punch. My job was also to make sure that I pulled the punch. But we were moving, and the camera was moving, so I had to be aware of the angle to the camera to make the punch look good. You know, I threw about a hundred punches in the shooting of it and I only hit him once.

I Shot a Hurricane Irma Photo That Went Viral, and I Wasnt Paid a Dime "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

My name is Michael Sechler, and Im a photography enthusiast based in Sarasota, Florida. I recently shot a Hurricane Irma photo that went viral and was used by media all over the world and I wasnt paid a dime. Heres why.

Firstly, Id like to say that although I am not a professional photographer, I am definitely an enthusiast and somewhat familiar with things like usage rights.

A few days ago, a few friends and I were doing some last minute preparations for Hurricane Irma. While we were out, we noticed some objects out in the bay where the water had receded. We took our shoes off and walked through the muddy marsh, shells, and rain to find out that they were two manatees. They had been stranded on land but the storm. After trying to help, I took this photo:

I posted it to my Facebook, and thats when things started.

Virality is an odd thing. You dont see it coming, but you can feel the momentum building while its happening. My phone notifications started going off like popcorn. One here, one there, then many more at once. People were tagging and sharing in an attempt to find someone to help these guys, while also hunkering down for the storm.

The first request for usage came from Fox News Desk. I froze. At this point, it was still very local, and I couldnt see where it was going. Also, I was very distracted by the hurricane outside. I didnt even know if I could ask for licensing because other photos were floating around (although not as good).

The key part here is that I also didnt know how. What did I ask for? How much should I ask for? Did they even care? Did I have to copyright or license it somehow?

So I told Fox they could use it as long as I was given credit. Unfortunately, this might ha...

Into the Trenches: Pipeline Sabotage in Hamilton, ON "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Anarchist News

Pipelines are war; one built from the insatiable greed of corporations which have normalized violence against the land and its living. Our resolve within this struggle intensifies with each audacious assault Enbridge launches; each time they dismiss the concerns and requests of Indigenous Nations. Every court proceeding. Every act of intimidation. Every lie or false claim of safety or necessity. Weve had enough.

So back when Enbridge started shipping in pipeline segments for their line 10 expansion, we started sabotaging them.

There are vast networks of pipeline infrastructure throughout Turtle Island. They are indefensible; perfect opportunities for effective direct action that harms nothing but an oil companys bottom line. Its in this spirit that we found ourselves going for long moonlit strolls through the trenches of the freshly dug line10 right-of-way. Wherever we felt the urge, we drilled various sized holes into pipeline segments while spilling corrosives inside others.

We do this in solidarity with the Indigenous peoples of this area. A people who have been displaced, threatened and murdered since early colonial arrivals who still continue to face this violence. Who suffer the consequences of this colonial capitalist society and the industries which drive it.

So to Enbridge: Youre gonna want to replace every last section of line 10 thats been laid out so far. We say this because we care for the environment, and dont care about you so take it seriously. And for every dollar you pursue from Indigenous Nations or individuals for defending their territories, we aim to cost you ten. #sorrynotsorry

To the public: Its up to you to hold Enbridge accountable in everything they do. Dont let them risk your lives by installing pipelines they now know to be compromised. Dont let them risk lives by installing pipelines, period.

And lastly, but not least, to our comrades and co-conspirators:

When I first saw Kameelah Janan Rasheeds work in her exhibition On Refusal at A.I.R. Gallery last year, I was mesmerized. What stunned me was how she used her materials to convey the idea of a fugitive, subaltern, lived experience thats expressed in syntactic slips and eruptions of deeply felt personal exertion against the burly undertow of religious ideology. The work amazed me by how she achieved via a cascade of text, photographs, photocopied images, and video with sound, bits of photocopied text and abstract imagery affixed to the walls with pins, the portrayal of an interior, psychological process of working through a crisis concerning ones faith and family history. The crisis simultaneously felt personal and common. I have been there myself, so the exhibition resonated with me. For her much larger show at the Arts Center on Governors Island, A Supple Perimeter, Rasheed uses essentially the same tactics, but here shes addressing a much larger issue: Blackness.

U.S. Military Spraying 6 Million Acres in Texas with Toxic Pesticide Banned in Europe in Response to Harvey "IndyWatch Feed Health"

U.S. Air Force Is Spraying 6 Million Acres With Chemicals in Response to Harvey

by Whitney Webb
EcoWatch

Excerpts:

Amid statewide efforts to clean up the aftermath left by the historic flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, the Pentagon announced last week that it had dispatched C-130H Sprayers from the Air Force Reserves 910th Airlift Wing in order to assist with recovery efforts in eastern Texas. However, these recovery efforts have little to do with rebuilding damaged structures or with the resettlement of evacuees. Instead, they are set to spray chemicals in order to help control pest insect populations, which they allege pose a health risk to rescue workers and residents of Houston.

The Pentagon has requested that the planes treat more than 6 million acres throughout the Houston area.

Naleds Toxicity Not Confined to Mosquitoes

While the Pentagon has framed its efforts to assist as seeking to eliminate a potential human health risk, the particular chemical it is using to control insect populations is likely to do more harm than good. According to the Air Force, the mosquito control protocol involves spraying the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved and regulated material, Naled, which the Air Force insists will not be used in amounts large enough to cause any concern for human health.

However, the insecticide Naled, manufactured and sold by a strategic partner of Monsanto, is cur...

How 9/11 Forever Changed Lilo & Stitch "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

 

9/11 was a turning point in every facet of American society including cinema. In September of 2001, Disney was approaching final cut on Lilo & Stitch a childrens film set for release in early 2002. The climax of the film initially featured Stitch piloting a 747 through a fictional Hawaiian city. But that urban backdrop was replaced with a mountainous backdrop, and the aircraft was re-worked to look like an alien spacecraft.

The changes were informed by the shift in the mood in America following the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Disney wasnt alone in their obligation to rework content to a more appropriate tone for a nation still reeling from the attacks.

Which is Fraudulent Bitcoin or JP Morgan? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

I'm really grateful JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon decided to once again lash out in anger at Bitcoin, as it provides us with ample opportunity to highlight a practice very near and dear to how the bank operates. Fraud.

The way the news cycle works, any topic that isn't already at the forefront of enough people's minds will be largely ignored irrespective of its importance. The fact that Jamie Dimon ironically called Bitcoin a fraud, allows us to ask highlight some very important facts about the seemingly systemic fraud inherent in America's largest bank, JP Morgan.

First, let's take a quick look at some of what Mr. Dimon said. Courtesy of the financial plutocrat network, CNBC:

Study: Flu Shot Associated with Spontaneous Abortion in Pregnant Women "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Pregnant woman getting vaccine from her gynecologist

Comments by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News

The annual flu vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the market today, a fact that is not in dispute.

The most recent report from the Department of Justice submitted at this years Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) meeting revealed that the U.S. Government had settled 275 lawsuits for flu vaccine injuries and deaths, while all other vaccine injury and death settlements were 57 combined. See:

Government Issues First Report in 2017 on Vaccine Injuries and Deaths: 275 Injured 4 Dead from Flu Shot

A new study published this month and actually making news in the corporate-sponsored mainstream media reveals a clear association between the flu vaccine given to pregnant women every year and spontaneous abortion. The study was funded by the CDC with American tax payer funds, so the results had to be published somewhere. Private studies exposing anything negative about vaccines are routinely censored in the U.S.

In spite of the dangers revealed in this study and a call for further research, there was no change to the CDC recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated with the flu shot every year in terms of public policy.

Hear What Happens When Avant-Garde Composer Pierre Boulez Conducts Three Frank Zappa Songs "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Was Frank Zappa a musical genius? A modernist, avant-garde composer who just happened to work in an idiomatic pastiche of jazz, classical, progressive rock and juvenile shock tactics? The question can be a deeply divisive one. Zappa tends to inspire either intense devotion or intense dislike. But whatever ones opinion of the man or his music, its safe to say that when he wasnt working alone, Zappa worked in the company of some incredibly talented musicians. And he attracted, as John Rockwell wrote in 1984 at The New York Times, a tiny following among classical avant-gardists.

That year, one of his more genteel fans, Pierre Boulezformer music director of the New York Philharmonic and widely regarded, notes Rockwell, as one of the great composers of the [20th] centurydecided to conduct a suite of Zappa songs. Zappa hoped the resulting album, The Perfect Stranger, would help him realize his ambition of having his music taken seriously in classical circles. (A brief collaboration in 1970 with Zubin Mehta, writes April Peavey at PRI, went nowhere.)




Boulez conducts his own ensemble for three tracks on the album, The Perfect Stranger, Naval Aviation in Art? and Duprees Paradise. The remaining four songs are performed by The Barking Pumpkin Digital Gratification Consort, a Zappaism for the Synclavier, Zappa's favorite electronic instrument. For all the high seriousness the collaboration implies, Zappa couldnt help inserting his surreally sardonic sense of humor; always a compulsive musical comedian, wrote Rockwell, he wears here the defensive mask of irony, again.

Each of the songs has an accompanying scenario. The Perfect Stranger imagines that a door-to-door salesman, accompanie...

Godoxs New Xpro Flash Commander Has a Big Screen and New TCM Feature "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Chinese lighting manufacturer Godox has unveiled a new flash commander unit called the Xpro.

The commander is able to control flashes in TTL mode as well as manual power and high-speed sync modes. All of the flashes and lamps that Godox makes in its X1 2.4 GHz system can be controlled and triggered.

The commander is able to handle several X1/R2 receiver flashes in up to 16 different groups, has a full graphic display of 5 groups simultaneously, and enables manual flash from 1/1 to 1/256 power.

There is also high-speed sync for up to 1/8000th of a second, with modeling light status control and stroboscopic multi flash.

The Xpro can selectively transmit data to conserve energy and battery life, as well as a useful magnification function that displays details of each groups settings.

Global adjustments can be made to exposure values in M mode, and some other features include FE lock, flash exposure compensation, and 11 customizable functions.

Theres also a new TTL-Convert-Manual (TCM) function, which allows you to meter your flashes while in TTL mode. If you then click a button and switch to manual mode, the settings will be automatically adjusted to give the equivalent output.

Lighting Rumours notes that this is almost exactly the same as Nissins TTL memory function, and it seems like Godox may be taking aim at them with this latest introduction.

The user interface also has direct-select buttons for each wireless grouping another similarity to the Nissin Air 10s. Such buttons are expected to give greater usability than when using other master flash uni...

Interview: Photographer Spends 15 Years Capturing Images of People Surrounded by Their Belongings "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

New Reading Portrait Mami Kiyoshi

Mr. & Mrs. Ochiai. Ibaraki, Japan, 2005. They married in 2005. This portrait was a souvenir of their wedding ceremony. The bride is an illustrator and the groom is a private school teacher.

For the past 15 years, Japanese artist Mami Kiyoshi has been carrying out her unique project New Reading Portraits. By asking people to pose with their belongings, she creates an intimate view into their world. As her models expose themselves to the camera through their physical possessions, they also open themselves emotionally through this artistic show and tell.

Kiyoshi began her journey into fine art photography when she was still a student at the Musashino Art University. As she journeyed from self-portraiture to taking her family's photos, her interest then turned toward others. Working as a curious detective to discover other people's lives, she slowed down her process and began New Reading Portraits.

We had the opportunity to ask Kiyoshi a few questions about the ongoing project and her process, as well as asking her to share stories behind some of the images.

Pot Smokers Beware of Killer Pesticides and Poison "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Jon Rappoport, Guest
Waking Times

Pot smokers, environmentalists, and just plain humans: take notice.

A recent article in The Atlantic reveals highly toxic pesticides are being used on illegal pot farms in California, and the runoff is poisoning forests.

Ill quote extensively from the article and then make comments:

Secret growers are taking advantage of the states remote stretches of public landand the environmental impact is severe.

this past November, [California] residents voted yes on Proposition 64, making California the fifth state to legalize recreational pot. Almost two-thirds of the countrys total legal harvest comes from the Golden State [poisoned pot shipped everywhere]

The lethal poisons growers use to protect their crops and campsites from pests are annihilating wildlife, polluting pristine public lands, and maybe even turning up in your next bong hit.

grow sites tested positive for carbofuran, a neurotoxic insecticide that is so nasty it has been banned in the U.S., Canada and the EU. Farmers in Kenya have used it to kill lions. Symptoms of exposure range from nausea and blurred vision to convulsions, spontaneous abortions, and death.

Some 50 different toxicants have turned up at grow sites Growers use the poisons to keep rodents and other animals from eating the sugar-rich sprouting plants, from gnawing on irrigation tubing, and from invading their campsites in search of food. Acute rodenticides cause neurological damage and internal bleeding. Animals literally drown in their own blood or stumble around until theyre eaten themselves, passing the poison up the food chain to predators like owls and fishers.

Its a massive problem, says Craig Thompson, a wildlife ecologist with the U.S. Forest Service. People dont tend to grasp the industrial scale of whats going on. There are thousands of these sites in places the public thinks are pristine, with obscene amounts of chemicals at each one....

Grandma Makes Her Family Beautiful Doll Beds And They End Up Being Used By Dogs Instead "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Several years ago, Dasha Lebedevs grandmother gave her and her sister beautiful, handmade doll beds for Christmas. She told them that shed made the beds so that one day their children would have beautiful beds for their dolls but they ended up being used a bit differently than she imagined. 

Credit: Dasha Lebedev

Lebedev and her family are from Russia, and her grandmother has always handmade their clothes for them, even since moving to the U.S. After she gave them the special doll beds, Lebedev and her sister put them away in the basement for safekeeping. When Hurricane Irma hit, their basement began flooding, and the sisters brought up anything of value to make sure that nothing got ruined. 

Luckily these beds came with custom fitted protection thanks, Grandma and they were unharmed, Lebedev told The Dodo. We brought them upstairs and instantly had the idea to show them to the pups. They're the perfect size for this kind of fun. 

Even though the beds were technically meant for their future children to use, the sisters decided to show them to their furbabies instead

and of course, the dogs instantly loved them.

Amazing 17 Second Law Of Attraction Secret "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The universe wants you to have everything that you want, because its a connection what you are seeking is also seeking you too, there is a reason your desires and dreams have been placed into your heart for a reason, its a gift that you especially have been given because you are the one possible to bring this dream forth..

The only thing blocking it from coming to you right now is resistance. Focusing on it not being there and focusing on the lack. To get what you want, you need to focus on it without any other thoughts of doubt or disbelief that it will happen for you.

Life gives you what you constantly pay attention to, when you notice something once and focus on it, you start to see it everywhere. What you focus on grows.

Imagine you are in a foreign country and the taxi driver doesnt understand you. You tell him Dont take me to Dubai Mall please. PLEASE do NOT take me to Dubai mall. He doesnt understand you, but he just hears what you are focusing on, so he will take you to Dubai Mall.

Would you get in a taxi and ask for what you want by telling the driver where you dont want to go?

Its the same with the Universe when you keep focusing on something, it doesnt know whether you want it or not, it just knows that you are focused on it. Because they Universe wants to give you everything you want, so it doesnt make sense to it that you would keep on talking about what it is you dont want. Ask for what you do want.

If you are focused on the things you want from a point of lack that it hasnt happened yet that it is missing, this is a strong signal that your belief is not in alignment with your what you want and it is this resistance is keeping it away from you.

You are the creator of your life experience, what you focus on expands so focus on what you want. Abraham Hicks says you only need 17 seconds of focus to get you into the right state of attraction.

Why 17 Seconds?

Because just by focusing in 17 seconds you can change how you feel. Abraham says that 17 seconds is enough time of focus to lead to another thought which makes the law of attraction more powerful. At the end of 17 seconds, again another 17 seconds leads to 34 seconds and then the focus gives out this powerful energy and you become a vibrational match of what you really want. Then if you can reach 68 seconds, its on its way to manife...

Florida Farmers Say Irmas Damage Is The Worst Theyve Ever Seen "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

 citruscrops

Almost half of Floridas citrus crops were destroyed during the hurricane and when Florida farmers survey the damage caused by Hurricane Irma, and most are saying its the worst destruction to their farms that theyve ever seen.

When the worst of Irmas fury had passed, Gene McAvoy hit the road to inspect the citrus groves and vegetable fields in Florida. McAvoy is a specialist on vegetable farming at the University of Floridas extension office in the town of LaBelle. LaBelle is located in the middle of one of the countrys biggest concentrations of vegetable and citrus farms.

According to NPR, the storm made a direct hit to those fields. The eyewall came right over our main production area, McAvoy says. Irma had destroyed almost half of the citrus crops in the central Florida area, meaning prices are likely going to go up sharply.

Many of the destroyed groves of oranges and grapefruit were actually approaching harvest too.  But after Irma blew through, it left 50 or 60 percent of the fruit lying in water [or] on the ground, says McAvoy. Many trees were standing in water, a mortal danger if their roots stay submerged for longer than three or four days. About a quarter of the countrys sugar production comes from fields of sugar cane near Lake Okeechobee, just east of LaBelle. Harvest season for the sugar cane crop is only a few weeks away, but Irma knocked much of the cane down, making it more difficult to harvest. We wont know the exact extent of the loss until its harvested, McAvoy says.

Fortunately for the vegetable farms, most had yet to be planted, so the destruction was minimal.  But that wont help the destro...

Student Begs Professor To Let Her Bring Her Dog To Class Before The Hurricane "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

As Hurricane Irma was fast approaching, Jessica Lewis decided that she and her dog, Luna, should evacuate their college town and drive home to Lewis family near Atlanta. Classes were being canceled in anticipation of the storm, but before the pair could leave, Lewis had one final class to attend. 

Not wanting to waste any time, Lewis decided that it would be easiest to bring Luna to her last class with her so that they could leave immediately after but first, she had to ask her professor if that would be OK. 

Credit: Jessica Lewis

Lewis had no idea how her professor would react to having a dog in class, and so Lewis wrote him a detailed, thoughtful email, begging him to let her bring Luna to class. She even included a few pictures of Luna, hoping her adorable face would help sway him.

Lewis anxiously awaited her professors response, and when he finally emailed her back

she was surprised and delighted to find that she had absolutely nothing to worry about.

As it turns out, Lewis professor is a huge dog lover, and was more than happy to welcome Luna to his final class before the hurricane. The rest of the class was also delighted by Lunas presence, and she was a perfect, attentive student for the entire hour and 15 minutes. ...

Medical News Today reports that, in 2011, there was a modest uptick in the number of prescriptions written in the US.

The increase brought the total to: 4.02 billion.

Yes, in 2011, doctors wrote 4.02 billion prescriptions for drugs in America.

Thats an average of roughly 13 prescriptions for each man, woman, and child.

Thats about one new prescription every month for every American. (Update: the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that in 2016, 4,065,479,343 drug prescriptions were written by US doctorsan increase of 65 million.)

The Medical News Today article concluded, the industry should be heartened by the growth of the number of prescriptions and spending. Yes, Im sure the drug industry is popping champagne corks.

Were talking about prescriptions here. Were not talking about the number of pills Americans took. Were also not counting over-the-counter drugs or vaccine shots.

Pharmacopoeia, a 2011 exhibition at the British Museum, estimated that the average number of pills a person takes in his or her own lifetime in the UK is 14,000. Thats as a result of prescriptions. Including over-the-counter drugs, the 14,000 number would swell to 40,000 pills taken in a lifetime.

What are the effects of all these drugs?

We are looking at a supreme Trojan Horse that is rotting out America and all other countries from the inside. Wars, no wars, economic deprivation, economic prosperity, the drugs continue to do their work, debilitating and ruining and terminating lives....

Google is NSA "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Google wants to be Big Brothers eyeballs on you. All US internet gurus knew this since before the NSA was found out spying on everybody. But now the Mountain View boys are more determined than ever to filter your information, and to obliterate any semblance of truth reaching people.

by Phil Butler

If I had led into an article with that paragraph even five years ago, Id have been instantly labeled a conspiracy theorist or worse. How about know dear reader? Is the idea the technocrats and their huge monied handlers want to run you crazy? I didnt think so. But if you need proof beyond the obvious, GoogleS 160-page handbook tells us all exactly how they plan to spoon feed us only their news. The lengthy handbook is a heavy read for the average person, but the book does lay out an Orwellian machination unlike anything seen since the Nazi propaganda machine of Hitler. Pay close attention to the instructional on page 108 where Google dictates who does and does not meet rating criteria. The section under Fails to Meet (FailsM) is a steamrolling of the free press, and suggested hiding certain kinds of sites:

Pages that directly contradict well established historical facts (e.g., unsubstantiated conspiracy theories), unless the query clearly indicates the user is seeking an alternative viewpoint.

Limiting global warming to 1.5C could save two-thirds of Asias glacier ice "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Keeping global temperature rise to no more than 1.5C above pre-industrial levels could ensure that two-thirds of the ice stored in Asias high-mountain glaciers is still around at the end of the century, a new study says.

These glaciers provide water to at least 800 million people living in Asia.

However, it could be too late to save all of Asias iconic snowy landscape, the lead author tells Carbon Brief. The research finds that, if global greenhouse gas emissions were stopped today, 14% of Asias glacier ice would still disappear by the end of the century.

And, if no efforts are made to curb global greenhouse gas emissions, two-thirds of the glacier ice in Asias high mountains could vanish by 2100, the study says.

The great melt

Glaciers are huge rivers of ice that ooze their way over land, powered by gravity and their own sheer weight. The thousands of glaciers that are strung across the high mountains of Asia contain the largest store of permanent ice and permafrost outside of the North and South poles.

Despite its snowy exterior, the mountainous region is expected to warm up at a faster pace than the surrounding low-lying land as global temperatures rise.

This is partly because snow has a high albedo, which means it reflects a high proportion of the sunlight back into the atmosphere, says Philip Kraaijenbrink, a PhD student at Utrecht University in the Netherlands and lead author of the new study published in Nature. He tells Carbon Brief:

Snow reflects a large part of the incoming radiation, up to 90%, which means it has a high albedo. And a high snowline consequently means that more energy stays at the Earths surface.

In other words, as the glaciers retreat, they expose more of the dark, rocky ground beneath. This means the land then absorbs more of the suns radiation and heats up more quickly, melting more ice.

The study is the first to use mathematical modelling to investigate how the ice stored by Asias glaciers will fare under a range of fu...

Remarkable Finalists of the 2017 Wildlife Photographer of the Year Contest "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

wildlife photography contest

Arctic treasure Sergey Gorshkov (Russia). Finalist, Animal Portraits.
Carrying its trophy from a raid on a snow goose nest, an Arctic fox heads for a suitable burial spot. This is June and bonanza time for the foxes of Wrangel Island in the Russian Far East. Lemmings are the basic diet for Arctic foxes, but Wrangel suffers long, harsh winters and is icebound for much of the year, making it a permanent source of stored food for these opportunist animals. The food convoys arrive at the end of May. Over just a few days, vast flocks of snow geese descend on the tundra of this remote UNESCO World Heritage Site, traveling from wintering grounds some 4,800 kilometers (3,000 miles) away in British Columbia and California. Not only is this the biggest breeding colony of snow geese in the world, and the only remaining one in Asia, but it is also growing: from 160,000 geese in 2011 to about 300,000 by 2016. The Arctic foxes catch any weak or sick birds, but what they feast on are the goose eggs, laid in early June in open nests on the tundra. Though the pairs of snow geese actively defend their nests, a fox may still manage to steal up to 40 eggs a day, harassing the geese until theres a chance to nip in and grab an egg. Most of the eggs are then cached, buried in shallow holes in the tundra, where the soil stays as cold as a refrigerator. These eggs will remain edible long after the brief Arctic summer is over and the geese have migrated south again. And when the new generation of young foxes begins to explore, they too will benefit from the hidden treasures.

Can You Really Decaffeinate Your Own Tea? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Heather CallaghanEditor

I just bought a bulk box of green tea then promptly decided to quit caffeine. As the hurricane talk swirled, did the idea of being without caffeine bother you? Personally, the idea of being that dependent on a chemical annoys me, so I wanted out.

I know we and other health websites tout the benefits of coffee and tea, but if you think about it, its weird that we promote these things, but simultaneously dose ourselves with a drug called caffeine. A drug that is hard on the kidneys, changes our brain, deflates our immune system and dehydrates us! Additionally, caffeine affects blood pressure, central nervous system, REM and its dependency can cause mood swings.

Its not all bad! I just didnt like being grumpy until I got my hit.

Caffeine is incredibly difficult to nip. In fact, if you get a sense of impending doom and despair, you might want to ask yourself when you last had caffeine.

So, Can you Decaffeinate Your Own Tea?

Short answer: No, but, yes!

WATCH: Video Gives Stunning Look at Wildfires in Portugal "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Although this video report by Arte.tv is narrated in German, the visuals and the interviews give a good idea of what has led to the problem of wildfires, in particular the poorly established and managed tree plantations, and the short-sighted and irresponsible behavior of the pulp and paper industry, who use the pathetic excuse that they are simply responding to the needs of the market.

It is interesting that the same pulp and paper industry association (CELPA) spokesperson who was interviewed for the video (see above), is also the director of the PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification), and until December 2015 was manager of the Portucl/Soporcel pulp and paper mill at Figueira da Foz.

Having a good fire response system is all very well, but meaningful wildfire disaster prevention must mean massively reducing paper consumption in the EU, and removing the offending trees in Portugal will be the only viable solution at the local level.

Heres a short blurb translated into English from Art.tvs website:
The environmentalist Domingos Patachos (Quercus) has been warning for years that the real cause of the forest fires in Portugal is not the heat but the blue eucalyptus. The plant is highly flammable because of the essential oils it contains, and as it grows rapidly, it is extremely popular with the forestry industry and is increasingly replacing the native trees also promoted with EU funds.  Forest fires in Portugal The truth behind disaster

However, it makes little difference whether the plantations are eucalyptus or pine (as both are highly flammable) but the really big question concerning the wildfires that have recently devastated tree plantation areas in Portugal, and Chile, and Canada, and South Africa, and a number of other countries, is who will take financial responsibility for the deaths and injuries, lost income, and damage to property that local communities have suffered as a result?

Cops Find Former Ringling Tigers Locked In Arkansas Barn "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

After receiving an anonymous tip-off, officials from the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) went to investigate a farm shop in Poinsett County, Arkansas, earlier this week. What they found was shocking seven tigers, six lions and one leopard locked up in cages.

As it turned out, these big cats belonged to Alexander Lacey, a trainer from the now-defunct Ringling Bros. circus. After the controversial circus shut down earlier this year, animal welfare advocates hoped its animals would be retired to sanctuaries. Instead, Feld Entertainment, the company behind Ringling Bros., announced in May that it would be shipping the animals to Germany, where theyd continue to perform in another controversial circus, Zirkus Charles Knie.

According to media reports, Lacey had the necessary paperwork to transport the big cats, but he hadnt alerted Arkansas officials that hed be keeping the animals in Arkansas. However, its unclear whether Lacey will face any consequences for failing to alert the authorities.  

The Dodo could not immediately reach the AGFC for comment.

The seven tigers, six lions and one leopard were taken to the airport yesterday and flown to Germany. Whatever happens to the big cats now, animal advocates continue to worry about their welfare.

Unique Egyptian Gilded Coffin Acquired by the Metropolitan Museum "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Detail of a gilded coffin lid for the Priest Nedjemankh (late Ptolemaic Period, 150-50 BCE) (all images the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has added some serious bling to its ancient Egyptian collection in the form of a rare, gilded coffin with a highly ornamental lid.

Dating to the late Ptolemaic period, the mummiform coffin was inscribed for the high-ranking priest Nedjemankh, who was part of the cult of the ram-god Heryshef of Herakleopolis. Its gold-sheathed surface portrays scenes and texts in thick gesso relief that served to protect the deceased as he ventured into the afterlife. Its interior, too, is decorated, featuring a unique detail: thin sheets of silver foil intended to protect the priests face.

Originally exported from Egypt in 1971, the coffin emerges from a private collection and is now a one-of-a-kind object in the Mets own holdings.

Although fully gilded coffins from Egypt are attested over a period of more than 1,500 years, they are extremely rare, and the Met owns no other examples, a member of the museums Egyptian Art Department told Hyperallergic. The coffin of Nedjemankh is distinctive within the collection both for its materials and the technique of gesso pastiglia used to create the decoration. It also fills a gap in the museums collection of coffins between earlier Ptolemaic examples and later Roman ones.

DxOMark Smartphone Camera Rating Now Considers Bokeh and Zoom "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

DxOMark, the popular benchmarking website for sensors and lenses, has updated the way it will rank and score smartphone cameras. Its introducing bokeh and zoom as categories in its scoring methodology, with added importance on low-light and motion performance as well.

The scores will now appear in this format:

Every single mobile that has been tested between 2012 and now, you can compare, because it followed the same protocol, Clement Viard, senior director of image quality evaluation at DxOMark, tells Digital Trends. But technology has changed so rapidly in the last five years that we have had to change the protocol.

With dual cameras simulating DSLR-style bokeh, as well as optical zoom now being possible, DxOMark has had to adapt. Taking this into account, the new zoom sub-score and bokeh sub-scores should help to clear things up.

DxOMark designed a dedicated studio setup for the new bokeh test.

The latest smartphone models come with camera technology and features that have slowly but surely brought our original test protocol to its limits, DxOMark writes.

Low-light testing will now be performed down to just 1 Lux, and motion-based test scenes will allow more accurate evaluation of a cameras performance and processing techniques for real-world situations. There are also updates to the way it analyzes video capture, inc...

  • Long vilified as the chief trigger for heart disease, cholesterol is actually an essential component in nearly every cell in your body and has a protective effect in your respiratory and gastrointestinal systems
  • Recent research has again underscored the importance inflammation plays in the development of chronic diseases, including heart disease, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease

Your body uses it to make hormones, protect your cell membranes, digest food and manufacture vitamin D after exposure to the sun.

Rethinking Education for 21st Century Careers "IndyWatch Feed Education"

by Lauren Cuzzaniti, Business Development at  Coursera

College can be an incredibly valuable experience. At its best, college is a place that teaches you to work well with others, challenges you to think critically, and gives you the skills you need to embark on a career.  Unfortunately, not all college graduates have that experience.   And while its universally recognized that college is no longer the ticket to a secure future it once was the proportion of college graduates has tripled since 1970 (11% to 33.4%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau)what is troubling is that not only are students not getting the job outcomes, but they also are not getting the skills they should from higher education.

In todays world, critical thinking may be one of the most important skills to ensure long term career success given the need to continually adapt to changing job market needs.  Yet after tracking thousands of college students across 24 universities, sociologists Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa found that even after 4 years of study, 36% of students did not significantly improve their critical thinking. Employers agree with this deficiency with only 26% feeling their recent college graduate hires are well prepared in critical thinking. They also found them lacking in a host of other skills from working with numbers to solving complex problems.

As a result, new grads are finding it harder to find quality jobs with many winding up in jobs that do not require college degrees. Meeting these harsh realities in the workplace led only 44% of college seniors to believe that their college experience had been very helpful in preparing for a career, according to McGraw-Hill Educations 2017 Workforce Readiness Survey.

However, while returns in actual skills gained from college are not there for everyone, an increasing number of employers are requiring college degrees for jobs that traditionally never required one. Since there are many more college graduates, employers are using a college degree as an additional way to filter candidates even if the skills they are looking for are not taught in a traditional bachelors degree.

The result is that the nearly of the U.S. population without a bachelors degree is being shut out of more and more high quality careers, and according to Harvard GSEs Pathways to Prosperity report, roughly half of all...

Metalcore Band Could Become SoundCloud Rappers at Any Moment "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

CINCINNATI Metalcore stalwarts Agony of Death are closing in on a band agreement that could lead to their first foray into SoundCloud rap, according to sources close to the quartet.

Lead singer Hardwin Tito first hinted at the possible change this past Friday.

Internet rap could be a solid next step for the band. Ive seen some YouTube videos, and I think Im ready to completely change my entire identity, said Tito. SoundCloud really seems to be where the music of the future will live.

Weve toured southwestern Ohio relentlessly for the past 14 years, added drummer Darren Boston. Our fan base just never really got off the ground, for whatever reason.

The band noted the lukewarm reception to their last three albums as the major reason for their reinvention, but some members are reportedly skeptical.

Obviously, Im excited to get a face tattoo, dont get me wrong. But I really cant see myself sipping sizzurp, said guitarist Marcus McConnell. Tito goes through these phases. That vaporwave phase was particularly annoying, but so was the glitch art tumblr.

Many SoundCloud artists weighed in on the bands decision, including notable n-metal DJ, DJ Joe Pesci.

Listen, I quit my band in 2015 to do SoundCloud full-time, and it was the best decision I ever made, said Pesci. I make over $90 per month through SoundCloud. The best part is, I get to record all my music in my new studio the guest bedroom of my aunts house.

Im excited for the new direction, said Tito. Im very serious about rapping and gaining clout within my new scene. Ive been following underground rap for a while PO$TMANE, Xanmanda Bynes, XXXorcism, or anyone from Knife Boi Squad. I like Lil House Phone a lot, too.

Before & After: A Kitchen Renovation and Expansion in London "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Caroline and John started searching for a new home in the Angel neighborhood of London three years ago. They lived in a flat in Angel at the time, and because of the easy access to Londons Financial District where Caroline and John both work, they wanted to find a house in the same neighborhood. But the search was much more exhausting than they expected. I had pretty much put a bid in (above asking price) on every home in the area and still managed to lose out. The market was going crazy, Caroline remembers. By expanding their search radius by 500 meters (or about 1/3 mile), more options appeared. From the doorstep of a house they were touring in the Newington Green neighborhood, the couple saw a Victorian terraced house with a for sale sign out front. They were instantly drawn to the house and knew it was finally the one they could call home with their children, Jack and Annabelle.

It wasnt a move-in ready home (there was carpet in the bathrooms!), but that was okay with Caroline and John. It had previously been used as a house share and it has definitely been transformed. We fell in love with it even though it needed a lot of work, Caroline shares. No matter what property you buy you are always going to change something about it, so having to do a lot of work didnt faze us too much.

The biggest project of all was tearing out the existing kitchen and expanding the space. The kitchen was the worst part of the house The kitchen extension was always going to be a project, Caroline says. To help the couple create the kitchen of their dreams, they hired interior designer Kia Stanford of Kia Designs. The expansion happened in the middle of winter, exposing the home to the elements and leaving the family without the use of a functional kitchen, but Caroline says it was so worth it.

The kitchen has since been completely transformed. A mix of colors, materials and styles works perfectly to make a space that is unique to Caroline and John. Their goal when they...

Step One- 72 Hour Suitcase "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Seems very simple, the officials say to have a 72 hour kit. I am in the process of making a 72 hour kit for my daughter. Please note chances are high that she will be at my door if an emergency ever happens but I would like for her and her boyfriend to be prepped just in case. I want to keep things at a lower cost. I know that putting a dollar amount vs. a life is bad but this is a basic 72 hours kit that may never be used so wasting money on the latest and greatest is not what I want to...

Curiosity saves the cat: Tourism helps reinvent the jaguar "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

From villain to hero, the jaguar (Panthera onca) stands at the cusp of a radical overhaul in its public image. As the largest cat in the Americas, the species commands a dominant role in the food chain of its native Pantanal a vast swathe of tropical wetland that encompasses parts of Brazil, Paraguay and Bolivia. Once hunted for its fur, the jaguars appetite for the abundant prey in the Pantanal has led it into deadly conflict with ranchers in recent decades, casting it as the stalking menace of livestock and livelihood in a region where much of the land is reserved for cattle rearing. However, in a hopeful development for conservationists, researchers have revealed in a new study published in Global Ecology and Conservation that jaguars are worth 60 times more to tourism than the cost the big cats inflict on ranchers. The study represents a regional reality in the Pantanal, said Fernando Tortato, research fellow at Panthera, the global wild cat conservation group that helped lead the study. Where the jaguar brings in far more revenue than the potential damage it can cause. Once vilified for the threat it posed to livestock, the jaguar is enjoying a reassessment of its character in the Pantanal. Credit: Rafael Hoogesteijn. Jaguars once abounded from the southwestern U.S. to Argentina, but their numbers have fallen due to hunting and habitat loss. In the Amazon rainforest, deforestation is an ongoing threat, even while the dense foliage often precludes human encounters with jaguars. In

Studies Link Heavy Metals to the Explosion of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Declining IQ in American Children "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
World Mercury Project

 

A silent pandemic of neurodevelopmental toxicity is disabling a generation of children around the world. This is the verdict of neurology experts Philippe Grandjean and Philip Landrigan in a 2014 report in Lancet Neurology. The staggering tsunami of developmental disabilities now affects at least one in six children in the U.S. and millions more worldwide. Two new studies suggest that the most common of these illnessesautism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and ticsare related to each other and may share common causation. The culprit? Environmental toxins, particularly heavy metals.

About 11% (or one in nine 4-17-year-olds) have received an ADHD diagnosisand in some states, as many as 19%. The most recent ASD estimates in the U.S., from 2014 data, report a prevalence of one in 45 children, representing a significant increase compared to 20112013.

Neurodevelopmental disorders overlap even in the general population

A new UK-based study in the Journal of Attention Disorders explores undiagnosed ADHD and ASD in a population of mostly female adult volunteers drawn from the general population. The researchers included only participants who had never received a diagnosis of ADHD, ASD, dyslexia or another mental disorder. Participants completed four online questionnaires that measured ADHD and ASD traits.

  • The researchers classified one-fifth (20%) of the participants as having ADHD despite their lack of a prior diagnosis.
  • A substantial proportion (...

The Return of Kodak Ektachrome Film is Nigh "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Want to shoot Kodaks extinct Ektachrome film again? Youll be able to very, very soon. Kodak is saying that a limited supply of the resurrected film is coming by the end of the year, and a full relaunch is scheduled for 2018.

Kodak Alaris announced at CES back in January that it was planning to bring the classic Ektachrome film stock back from the dead, saying that 35mm Ektachrome would hit store shelves in the 4th quarter of 2017.

After months of silence, it appears that these plans are still on track. In response to a Facebook page inquiry about the upcoming film, Kodak responded by saying that a limited supply of the film will be available for market testing this year and that availability is coming next year.

Whats a bit unclear at this point is the company behind this Ektachrome relaunch. The original announcement at CES was made by Kodak Alaris, a separate company thats owned by the Kodak Pension Plan in the UK and which runs Kodaks Personalized Imaging division. But this latest comment was made by the Facebook page verified as being operated by the Eastman Kodak Company, based in the United States.

Weve reached out to Kodak for comment and will update this post if we receive any clarification.

Magnificent Photographs of Japans Summer Firework Festivals "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Furukawa Fireworks Festival

Summer in Japan means colorful explosions in the sky, where some 200 firework festivals called hanabi taikai are held across the country in July and August, a tradition that dates back to the early 18th century. At many events, pyrotechnicians actually compete to create the best firework show, with extreme attention to detail in scale, color, and design. Photographer Keisuke trekked to several shows this summer and captured the most eye-opening moments of these nighttime events. Although just 25 years old, the photographer has received numerous awards for his landscape photography of Japan and hes amassed quite a following on Instagram.

Meet the 6-Year-Old Instagram Fashionista Whos Becoming a Style Icon in Tokyo "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

High Fashion Photography by Coco

Having a flair for fashion is a gift, and its one that a Japanese girl named Coco has cultivated early. At just six years old, shes a bona-fide Instagram star, dazzling people from around the world with her bold and trendy kids fashion. Coco isnt afraid to mix patterns or wear bright colors, and she does it all with an effortlessly cool attitude. Shes even able to make questionable outfit choiceslike wearing white socks with sandalswork for her.

Coco first learned about fashion from her parents. They run a vintage clothing store in Harajuku, a Tokyo neighborhood known for its eccentric style. Its the second iteration of their shop; the family business started in Fukushima, but after the 2011 Thoku earthquake, they were forced to relocate. Coco was just a baby when she moved to Harajuku, and shes used to wild fashions she sees thereto her, they're normal.

When it comes to running her Instagram, Coco has a mind of her own. She chooses what goes online and is genuinely interested in growing her following through great poses and amazing ensembles. But, this is just one facet of Cocos life; None of the kids [at school] dress the way I do, she says in a video. We don't really want to make her go into fashion or that industry, Coco's mom further explains, and she compares the endeavor to an after school program. The little girl pursues her style simply because she loves doing so.

Known simply as Coco, the six-year-old Instagram star is changing the face of high fashion photography.

Everyday Plastic Objects Fill a Scottish Greenhouse With Faux Flora "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Swiss/Danish art duo PUTPUT creates conceptual still life photography and sculptures, infusing humor into their minimal works. In their 2015 project Fruitless, the Copenhagen-based pair turned a greenhouse on-site at Lust and the Apple Gallery in Temple, Scotland into a florescent green paradise. The two artists subbed cacti and other succulents for everyday plastic objects found around the house, instead planting gloves, combs, and plastic cups in real terra cotta pots.

Because the plastic forms closely imitate plants found in nature, the faux flora seem full of life in the unique context, glowing more brightly than their typical place on a shelf or counter.

If You Want To Change World, Start By Making Your Bed "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The secret to making a big difference is to start really small such as making the bed the first thing in the morning. Research has proven that nearly all of our actions are based on our habits. A habit is something we do every day without even thinking about we wake up put our clothes on, brush our teeth without even planning or thinking twice.

So starting the day by making the bed, gives you a sense of achievement that you have completed something good already before the day has started, which leads to the courage to achieve something else.

Imagine if you repeat this: every day you start by making the bed, you feel a sense of achievement and you continue this through out your day. A Day becomes a week, a week becomes a month a month becomes a year, all of these small little habits will lead you up to achieving something amazing. Its the little things that make a big difference.

If you have a bad day, you come home and your bed is made, that you made, and that encouragement will give you hope for a better day tomorrow.

Its more than just making the bed, it can be used across all areas in your life. It can lead to the habbit of gratitude, by being grateful that you have a bed to make and have something so secure and comfortable to sleep on every night, a privilege not everyone in the world has.

More reasons that making the bed develops a positive mindset:

  • Develops a positive habit.
  • Gives you courage that if you can do one thing, you can do another.
  • Clears your mind.

Taking responsibility for a small leads to confidence to take responsiblity for even bigger things.

 if you want to change the world, start each day with a task completed, find someone to help you through life, respect everyone, take risks, fail, dont give up.  William McRaven

 

Change starts with you, start small with what you have and then do big things.

Prepping For A Nuclear War: 10 Foods To Grow To Help Reduce Radiation Effects "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

vegetables

With the threat from North Korea of a potential and possibly imminent nuclear war on the horizon, many preppers have taken to gathering items which protect them from the effects of radiation.  Food can do that as well, and here are ten things you can grow to reduce that damages done by radiation.

Its terrifying to think about, but there may come a day when the United States will be struck by one or more nuclear weapons.  Because of this, Natural News compiled a list of the ten best foods to grow in case this horrific scenario becomes a macabre reality.

  1. Potatoes

    In the event of a nuclear attack, one of the first organs that will be affected by the nuclear fallout and radiation is the thyroid gland. The reason the thyroid is affected first is primarily because radioactive iodine is absorbed by the gland extremely quickly. Unbeknownst to most people, though, potato skins contain high amounts of iodine, which can be used by the body to shield the cells from radioactive material, like nuclear fallout. Potatoes are also one of the easiest and heartiest crops to grow, making them a no-brainer for anyone who is serious about prepping for a nuclear attack.

  2. Strawberries

    Like potatoes, strawberries are extremely easy to grow. All you really need is some soil, some water and a spot on the windowsill, and in no time at all, you will be able to enjoy a plethora of fresh, juicy berries. Strawberries also contain several important nutrients and are a good source of iodine. Its also been thought that eating...

New study linking miscarriages to vaccines goes mainstream "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu. Vaccine experts think the results may reflect the older age and other miscarriage risks for the women, and not the flu shots. Health officials say there is no reason to change the government recommendation that all pregnant women be vaccinated against the flu. They say the flu itself is a much greater danger to women and their fetuses. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reached out to a doctor's group, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, to warn them the study is coming out and help them prepare for a potential wave of worry from expectant moms, CDC officials said.

Phase Ones IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Back Sees Color Like the Human Eye "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Phase One today unveiled the IQ3 100MP Trichromatic Digital Back. It is based on a new CMOS sensor that perceives color close to what the human eye sees. The new sensor was created in a collaboration between Sony and Phase One.

Phase One already has a 100 megapixel back, but the new IQ3 100MP Trichromatic digital back uses a new Bayer filter color technology that produces more accurate colors.

Most of the other features like sensor size (53.4 x 40.1), active pixels (11,608 x 8,708), dynamic range (15 f-stops), pixel size in microns (4.6 x 4.6 microns) and 3.2-inch rear touch display are the same. However, the base ISO drops from 50 in the earlier back to 35 in the Trichromatic to produce a very clean image with low digital noise.

The proof is in the pudding when it comes to how clean are those files, how clean are those filters, says Dave Gallagher CEO of Capture Integration who has been working with Phase One for the last 18 years and just got his hands on the new back. Those three filters, if they can give us a more precise pass through of the RGB color, rather than if one filter overlaps 400-550 nanometers and the other one starts at 500, that 50 nanometers of overlap passing through both filters is going to cause muddiness.

The Top 8 Regrets of the Successful "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

We all strive to be successful in this world. Whether it be in business, our personal life, or in some other capacity, we would all love to be the best that we can be.

Even if you believe yourself to not personally be in pursuit of the American Dream, we undoubtedly live in a world that as a whole is quite obsessed with the attainment of it.

But what happens when we do attain success? Does everything in our life suddenly fall together perfectly making us no longer susceptible to challenge or hardship?

Chances are that you, like me, are not successful by societal standards, yet you know the answer to the previous question. There are countless examples of individuals who have attained all of the luxuries, wealth, and attention that one could hope for, that still find themselves fundamentally unhappy.

With this being the case, I was happy to come across the work of Dr. Gerald D. Bell through the book The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth: Live Them and Reach Your Potential written by John C. Maxwell. Within the book, John references a particular study conducted by Dr. Bell in which he asked 4000 now retired successful executives: if you could live your life over again, what would you do differently?

HPV Vaccines: The Pharmaceutical Menace Promoted As Prophylactic Medicine "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) of the World Health Organization generated some information in 2014, subsequently republished online by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, which was titled Disclosures of interestsPrimary End-points for Prophylactic HPV Vaccine Trials.

Several entries sort of stand out for various reasons:

Dr Douglas Lowy reports that as part of his United States government-supported research at the National Cancer Institute (NCI)/National Institutes of Health (NIH), he is an inventor of technology that underlies the L1-based prophylactic virus-like particle (VLP) HPV vaccine and technology that underlies an L2-based candidate prophylactic HPV vaccine. The NIH has licensed the technology for the L1 VLP vaccine to Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, to GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of Cervarix, and to Indian Immunologicals Ltd. The L2-based vaccine technology is the subject of a cooperative research and development agreement between the NCI, Johns Hopkins University, and Shantha Biotech, and has been licensed to Shantha, PanVax, Acambis Inc., and GlaxoSmithKline. United States Federal law entitles Dr Lowy to a limited share of royalties the NIH receives for these technologies.

Why you shouldnt unlock your phone with your face "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Photo credit: Engaget

Today Apple announced its new FaceID technology. Its a new way to unlock your phone through facial recognition. All you have to do is look at your phone and it will recognize you and unlock itself.

At time of writing, nobody outside of Apple has tested the security of FaceID. So this article is about the security of facial recognition, and other forms of biometric identification in general.

Historically, biometric identification has been insecure.

Cameras can be tricked.

Voices can be recorded.

Fingerprints can be lifted.

And in many countriesincluding the USthe police can legally force you to use your fingerprint to unlock your phone. So they can most certainly point your phone at your face and unlock it against your will.

If you value the security of your datayour email, social media accounts, family photos, the history of every place youve ever been with your phonethen I recommend against using biometric identification.

Instead, use a passcode to unlock your phone.

It hurts a lot more to change your face than to change your passcode

Heres a great scene from the 2007 movie The Bourne Ultimatum where Matt Damons character defeats 2-factor biometric identification on a safe:

https://medium.com/media/b571b864c8487c3521e6a1491b33df54/href

Even though this is a Hollywood movie from 10 years ago, it illustrates some of the problems inherent in biometric identification.

How many pictures of your face are out there? Could those images be stitched together and 3D-modeled to the degree of accuracy necessary to defeat FaceID, with its infrared lights and dot projection system?

Urbana IL to Crawfordsville IN on a Folding Bike "IndyWatch Feed Comics"

Last week I took a break from pushing pixels to have a life, and that life included a trip to Philadelphia. My departure station was Crawfordsville, IN. Since it was a nice day and winds were favorable, I rode the whole 80 miles on my Brompton folding bike, which Id planned to take to Philly with me anyway. Id really been neglecting the Brompton this Summer, as my back prefers recumbents. But its still a sweet bike, and with frequent breaks for back stretches, I made it without damaging myself.

DEVELOPING: Over 10,000 evacuated across Moscow over various bomb threats "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

More than 10,000 people were evacuated from shopping centers, railway stations and universities in Moscow, following almost simultaneous warnings that they had been rigged with explosives. Twenty sites are currently being evacuated, and more than 10,000 people have been escorted out, though the specific number is still being confirmed, an emergency services source told news agency Tass. This

appears to be a case of telephone terrorism, but we have to check the credibility of these messages, said the source, who noted that the calls began at the same time, and continued after the evacuations had begun. Emergency services said that specialist units and officers with sniffer dogs are examining the buildings. READ MORE

New: CIA Agent Whistleblower Risks All To Expose The Shadow Government "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


(Dane WigingtonKevin Shipp (author of "From The Company Of Shadows") was a decorated CIA officer who refused to look the other way in regard to government criminality and cover-up. At a very important public awareness event, held by GeoengineeringWatch.org in Northern California, on July 28th, 2017, Mr. Shipp presented a shocking and compelling presentation on numerous, horrific and ongoing government crimes. The total persecution of anyone who dares to tell the truth about rampant government tyranny is also fully exposed. The paradigm we have all known has been built on deception and the dark agendas of the global power structure. The courage Kevin Shipp has shown by doing his best to expose government criminality and tyranny serves as a stellar example to us all.

When Roald Dahl Hosted His Own Creepy TV Show Way Out, a Companion to Rod Serlings Twilight Zone (1961) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In an odd twist of history, two of the wisest and weirdest childrens writers of their generation also happened to have both been fighter pilots during World War II. Antoine de Saint-Exupry, author of The Little Prince, flew reconnaissance missions for the French Air Force before the 1940 armistice with Nazi Germany. Roald Dahl, author ofamong many othersCharlie and the Chocolate Factory, James and the Giant Peach, and The BFG, flew with the Royal Air Force. Both wrote about their flying exploits and both writers, it so happened, were once shot down over Libya, which also happens to be the title of Dahls first published story, written for grown-ups and published in the Saturday Evening Post in 1946.

There are maybe other uncanny similarities, but one thing Saint-Exupry never turned his hand to is television. Dahl, on the other hand, had the opportunity to host two TV shows during his lifetime: Way Out in 1961 and Tales of the Unexpected, which aired from 1979 to 1988 and featured several episodes based on Dahls own stories. Although he has become renowned for his high-concept kids books, at the time of Dahl's entre onto the tube, he had mainly achieved fame as a writer of macabre tales published in the New Yorker as well as a script written for Alfred Hitchcock Presents called Lamb to the Slaughter.




Dahl seems a natural fit for the medium, not only as a writer but as a presenter, with his dry wit and suave personality. But his first show, Way Outeight episodes of which you can now watch on YouTubecame about entirely by accident, or rather, as the serendipitous result of another programs spectacular failure. This is no exaggeration. Jackie Gleason, perhaps the most famous comedian of his day, had decided in 1961 to attempt a celebrity game show on CBS called Youre in the Picture. The show was such a bomb that it only aired once, and the following week, Gleason appeared on a bare stage for ha...

JSEcoin Javascript Embeded Cryptocurrency for Webmasters "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It seems that there is an interesting new cryptocurrency called JSEcoin that is targeted at offering webmasters a different way to monetizing their website traffic. Essentially allowing visitors to the website to mine the cryptocurrency with the help of small piece of javascript code embedded on the blog or website. The algorithm is not very heavy or demanding and the mining process itself does not seem to be taking too much CPU resources (it is CPU only), so the computer remains responsive and working just fine as if it is not calculating anything. This is making it pretty interesting for owners of big websites with more visitors, especially visitors that stay longer, but also makes it easy for regular users that are not yet into cryptocurrencies to actually get into mining this new cryptocoin as it only requires you to open a website and not do a lot of complicated stuff.

At the moment website mining is working and the platform is looking for website publishers that are interested in embedding the mining code to try it out (we are currently testing it here already). Investors are also welcomed with various options available for purchase of JSEcoins at a rate of $1 USD per JSE. Unfortunately there is currently no way to cash out your JSE coins, this should be possible after a planned ICO for around Q2 2018, you will then be able to transfer JSEcoin to exchanges and swap for Bitcoin/USD etc. according to the authors of the project. The platform is currently being integrated with Metamask a Chrome based wallet which facilitates Ethereum ERC20 transac...

Parents withdraw son from school because some children have a different name "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Parents of a child who is a school with other children who are clearly not called Callum have withdrawn their child from education. Speaking to the press this morning, Mr and Mrs Price of Hampshire say Callum came home asking why other children had a names other than Callum.

Mr Price said:  When I couldnt answer that question I realised my chances of explaining verbs and nouns or helping with science homework were zero, so weve called it a day with education. We will keep him at him at home with some Lego and alphabet spaghetti that spells out his name.

Mr and Mrs Price belong to a religion that only recognises the name Callum and have both changed their names to Callum by deed poll. They feel their religious freedom is being infringed by people not all doing exactly as they want and changing their names to Callum. The vicar at their church Reverend Callum French says this sort of discrimination is becoming more widespread.

People seem to think that their modern ideas of different names for different people are somehow progressive and that it helps people express their true selves more easily, but if everyone isnt called Callum, how confusing is that to a child? No one seems to be thinking about the children called Callum here do they?

The Church of Callum is now helping the Price family to take the local education authority to court, however so far they have been unsuccessful in finding a solicitor named Callum.

Psychedelic Smoothie Bowls Bring a Tie Dyed Twist to Healthy Eating "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Food Art by Rachel Lorton

Life is more fun in color, so why not make your meals as bright as a rainbow? Rachel Lorton, a self-proclaimed smoothie bowl enthusiast creates eye-pleasing dishes that are a psychedelic twist on the popular culinary trend. Using all-natural ingredients, she produces colorful, swirling patterns that are so vibrant, their visual electricity practically leaps out of the bowl. Neon pink, ocean blue, and deep magenta together resemble tie dye prints youd find on clothing. But don't let their hues fool you; Lorton has made her vegan creations good for you, too.

Through her Instagram, Lorton demonstrates that you dont need artificial colors or flavors to make stunning works of food art. I constantly get feedback from, let's just say junk-eaters,' she explains, who tell me that I inspire them to eat healthy because they didn't realize vegan food can look so good. Ingredients like turmeric, hemp heart, pea flower, and cantaloupe offer a variety of hues, in addition to their wellness benefits. Raw beetroot, especially, is a favorite of Lorton. I love all of its nutritional characteristics, but I enjoy how it helps muscle recovery and stamina for working out the most.

To produce these artistic smoothie bowls, Lorton uses a few readily-available tools. Once she's made the smoothie base, she'll fill squirt bottles with pureed colors and layer them on top. Then, using a toothpick, she drags the colors back and forth to create the swirling patterns. Finally, cut fruit is added for colorful accents and textures. Watch her mesmerizing technique in a couple of videos, below.

Hillary Said Trump Had Crazy Ideas? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

WOW: Hillary Clinton Wanted to Make Voodoo Dolls of Reporters, Lawmakers to Stick Them With Pins

Psycho Hillary Clinton was so peeved about the media coverage over her private email server that she was considering making voodoo dolls in the image of certain members of the news and Congress with the intention of [sticking] them full of pins.

That sounds sane . . .

In the text, Clinton goes on to complain about the various attacks that were leveled against her in relation to the use of her private email server and claims that the reports were untrue or widely overstated, and motivated by partisan politics.

In the excerpt below, she digs into her voodoo doll concept:

It was a dumb mistake. But an even dumber scandal. It was like quicksand: the more you struggle, the deeper you sink. At times, I thought I must be going crazy. Other times, I was sure it was the world that had gone nuts. Sometimes I snapped at my staff. I was tempted to make voodoo dolls of certain members of the press and Congress and stick them full of pins. Mostly, I was furious at myself.

In Clintons previous memoir, Hard Choices, according to reporting by Breitbarts Aaron Klein, Clinton detailed her attending of a voodoo spirit ceremony with a voodoo priest during her 1975 Haiti honeymoon with spouse Bill Clinton:

One of the most memorable experiences of our trip was meeting a local voodoo priest named Max Beauvoir . . . He invited us to attend one of his ceremonies. We saw Haitians seized with spirits walk on hot coals, bite the heads off live chickens, and chew glass, spit out the shards, and not bleed. At the end of the ceremony, the people claimed the dark spirits had departed.

Cuttlefish Love! "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Katja Novitskova, Earth Potential (Cuttlefish Love, Earth) (2017), digital print on aluminum, cut out display, steel and aluminum armature (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic).

Oh, these are all so dynamic and wonderful!

This fuzzy zone of magical looking is where Estonian artist Katja Novitskova operates, and her current exhibition in New Yorks City Hall Park is a wonderfully incongruous reminder that all our photos are manipulated.

EARTH POTENTIAL, a Public Art Fund exhibition, is that rare outdoor photography show that actually works. Instead of the usual billboards or placards clumsily affixed to a wall or fence, Novitskovas photographs are printed on freestanding aluminum panels between six and eight feet in diameter, lending them sculptural dimensionality. Most combine two elements one astronomic, the other microscopic printed on separate, custom-cut supports.

[]

Two of the seven pieces in EARTH POTENTIAL feature just one scientific image rather than a pair one is a bulbous cluster of orange stem cell embryos, the other a towering, pale pink strand of E. coli bacteria and they are the shows most abstract and ambiguous. Without the humor of juxtaposition and jarring shifts of scale of the other pieces, they confront us with the enormous power of scientific imagery and the frontiers of microscopic photography. They also hint at places where the boundaries of human knowledge are butting up against the limitations of human morality.

A Family of Artists Creates a Portrait of Inuk Life Across Three Generations "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view of Akunnittinni: A Kinngait Family Portrait

Three generations of artists from Kinngait, the renowned center of Inuit printmaking best known as Cape Dorset, are on view in an exhibition that consists of a century-spanning matrilineal exchange of forms, stories, and values. Akunnittinni: A Kinngait Family Portrait is titled for the Inuktitut word akunnittinni, meaning between us, and features work by Inuk grandmother, mother, and daughter Pitseolak Ashoona, Napachie Pootoogook, and Annie Pootoogook. Their prints and drawings resonate with intergenerational themes of motherhood and community, and the exhibition is itself a sampling of the history of the resilience of Inuit life in the face of the complexities of modernity and globalization as seen through the lens of a single, extraordinary family of artists.

Work from Kinngait is not infrequently shown in New York. Most recently, in late 2016, the Brooklyn Museum presented programs with the Cape Dorset Legacy Project to supplement its collection of Kinngait work from the 1950s to the present. It is also a major moment for Inuit artists internationally. Kananginak Pootoogook, a family member and one of the first Kinngait printmakers, is now the first Inuit artist to be shown at the Venice Biennale, having been selected for this years Arsenale exhibit seven years after his death. Closer to home, the exhibition SakKijjuk, organized by Heather Igloliorte the first major show of Labrador Inuit art is now currently touring across Canada.

It remains the deadliest natural disaster in US history. Of course there were souvenirs. As I write this, multiple hurricanes have just hit the Gulf and East coasts of North America, and our modern media is spreading images of the storms in its own leering way. Galveston and its morbid stereoscope cards are perhaps the prototype for disaster gawking in the 21st century.

Hacking The Power Grid: They Can Induce Blackouts On American Soil AT WILL "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The American power grid has been hacked.  It also appears that these hackers may take down the entire grid at will and induce blackouts when and where they choose.

For an unknown reason, however, the hackers restrained themselves from taking down the power like they did in Ukraine recently.  They simply hacked their way into the system, although speculation is that they just wanted to look aroundfor now.

You could have seen this one coming a mile away. The narrative is taking shape, folks.

A report by internet security experts, Symantec, says that a hacking group called Dragonfly 2.0 has gained access to 20 power company networks.

The targets were in the United States, Turkey, and Switzerland. According to Symantec, the hackers did gain access to the interface they would need to control the power equipment, with which they could cause a widespread blackout.

According to one expert, they were just in there looking around. John Hultquist, a researcher for FireEye security, said of another such intrusion, In our experience groups that have solely targeted energy like this have been carrying out reconnaissance for attack. Organic Prepper

For an unknown reason, however, the hackers restrained themselves from taking down the power like they did in Ukraine recently.  They simply hacked their way into the system, although speculation is that they just wanted to look aroundfor now.

You could have seen this one coming a mile away. The narrative is taking shape, folks. The boogie men are being put into place and when the time is right, The Powers That Shouldnt Be, will send the signal to their henchmen to set off the next crisis, stoking fear in everyones hearts. Out of chaos, order! The Daily Sheeple

A report by internet security experts, Symantec, says that a hacking group called Dragonfly 2.0 has gained access to 20 power company networks.

The targets were in the United States, Turkey, and Switzerland. According to Symantec, the hackers did gain access to the interface they would need to control the power equipment, with which they could cause a widespread blackout.

According to one expert, they were just in there looking around. John Hultquist, a researcher for FireEye security, said of another such intrusion, In our experience groups that have solely targeted energy like this have been carrying out reconnaissance for attack. Organic Prepper

The Cost of Sexual Harassment "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Originally posted at Gender & Society

Last summer, Donald Trump shared how he hoped his daughter Ivanka might respond should she be sexually harassed at work. He saidI would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case. President Trumps advice reflects what many American women feel forced to do when theyre harassed at work: quit their jobs. In our recent Gender & Society article, we examine how sexual harassment, and the job disruption that often accompanies it, affects womens careers.

How many women quit and why?  Our study shows how sexual harassment affects women at the early stages of their careers. Eighty percent of the women in our survey sample who reported either unwanted touching or a combination of other forms of harassment changed jobs within two years. Among women who were not harassed, only about half changed jobs over the same period. In our statistical models, women who were harassed were 6.5 times more likely than those who were not to change jobs. This was true after accounting for other factors such as the birth of a child that sometimes lead to job change. In addition to job change, industry change and reduced work hours were common after harassing experiences.

Percent of Working Women Who Change Jobs (20032005)

In interviews with some of these survey participants, we learned more about how sexual harassment affects employees. While some women quit work to avoid their harassers, others quit because of dissatisfaction with how employers responded to their reports of harassment.

Rachel, who worked at a fast food restaurant, told us that she was just totally disgusted and I quit after her employer failed to take action until they found out she had consulted an attorney. Many women who were harassed told us that leaving their positions felt like the only way to escape a toxic workplace climate. As advertising agency employee Hannah explained, It w...

5 Soothing Essential Oils To Rub On Your Sciatic Nerve For Instant Pain Relief "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by The Hearty Soul

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body. It starts in your spine and runs right down to the ankle on both legs. Its an experience most people connect with pain. Something that the elderly experience. But sciatica pain affects everyone. In fact, its not always even pain. Sometimes its an ache, a numbness, or even just a trembling. Its even linked to that weak-kneed feeling people get for no apparent reason at all.

Sciatica pain is caused by pressure on the nerve, normally from a prolapsed disk in your spine. But you can also get it from sitting too long, or in a weird position. Pregnant women often experience sciatica pain. It can also be caused by heavy lifting, stress, or in very rare cases a tumor.

There are several stretches you can do to ease sciatica pain. You might not be able to do eight yoga poses before work every morning (but give it a try if you have time). Another well-known way to deal with sciatica pain is to lie on your back with your knees drawn to your chest or supported by a chair (so long as your knees stay bent) and rest your head on a pillow. Do this while watching TV for ten minutes a night. But you can also treat sciatica with essential oils and other herbs.



Essential Oils

This is a list of oils you can rub into your skin. Remember to mix essential oils with a carrier oil (avocado oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, coconut oil, grapeseed oil, even extra virgin olive oil will do the trick), massage these into the area where you are having pain. If you like you can cover them with a warm cloth to help your muscles relax more fully. (Editors note: while the scientific community has still yet to fully research the effects of essential oils on humans, many...

Part V: The Michelle Carter Texting Trial Becomes a Witch Hunt "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Part V in a series of reports on Michelle Carter. Parts I through IV can be read hereherehere and here.

Man, when perfected, is the best of animals, but when separated from law and justice he is the worst of all.  Aristotle

Michelle was shown on Danish TV, the usual way, and you were left with the feeling she must be horrible. The witch hunts never end.  Peter Gtzsche, MD, Danish physician, researcher, and author

In the previous report in this Michelle Carter blog series, I examined the basis of the DAs case that Michelle killed Conrad Roy by texting. The entire case rested on proving beyond a reasonable doubt that seventeen-year-old Michelle told Conrad Roy to get back into his fume-filled truck in order to finish his suicide attempt, and that Conrad immediately obeyed and died as a direct result.

The DA charged Michelle with murdering Conrad with words that most people assumed were written down, recorded, or otherwise physically documented at the time Conrad died. There never has been any physical evidence for what, if anything, transpired between Michelle and Conrad shortly before his death. Instead, the DA based its entire case on a fragment of a longer text that Michelle sent to a friend more than two months after Conrads death!

When Michelle sent the infamous text to her girlfriend, two months had gone by since Conrads death. Michelle was distraught and overwhelmed with guilt and remorse. In her vulnerable and emotionally wounded condition, Michelle had been texting and phoning Conrad in heaven dozens of times during the prior two months, hoping he would keep his promise to communicate with her from the afterlife. When she wrote the text taking blame for his death, Michelle was in despair over never having heard from Conrad after his death, and she was finally letting go of this delusional hope.

Although the District Attorney in trial called Michelle a habitual liar who would say anything to get attention, the same DA nonetheless treated these few self-incriminating words from Michelle to a friend as if they were absolutely true and indeed uncontestable in their validity.

Yet this same DA knew, for example, that Michelle had told one friend that she never had sex with Conrad and yet told another that he forced sex on her. The DA also knew that Michelle had given many other ve...

North Korea suspected of hacking bitcoin exchanges to get around sanctions "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A report by cyber security firm FireEye suggests North Korean hackers are targeting cryptocurrency exchanges in South Korea in an attempt to avoid sanctions and fund "the state or personal coffers of Pyongyang's elite." According to FireEye, hackers linked to North Korea have stolen bitcoins from at least three South Korean cryptocurrency exchanges since May 2017. They used spear phishing - a fraudulent practice of sending fake emails - and dispersed malware to obtain virtual cash illicitly. Cryptocurrency attacks by North Korea were first detected in 2016. In April, four wallets on the Seoul-based cryptocurrency exchange Yapizon were compromised, but could not be clearly linked to North Korean involvement. Yapizon announced losing 3,816 bitcoins or about $5.3 million. The company, however, did not disclose who it believed to be responsible for the crime.

Heres How to Use Lavender Oil to Treat Anxiety Instead of Taking Prescription Medication "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Healthy & Tasty Recipes

Everyone feels a little anxious from time to time, the world is a stressful place and sometimes that stress can get on top of us, affecting our mood and relationships.

When a person becomes anxious to a point where it begins to affect their day-to-day life, they may be suffering from generalized anxiety disorder.

This term encompasses many other more specific anxiety disorders, a sufferer of one of these disorders can often be so anxious that day-to-day tasks become impossible, and they focus their worries on things that may not seem important to the rest of the world.

Anxiety disorders account for most of the mental illness in America. Around 6.8 million adults suffer from generalized anxiety disorder and women are affected twice as much as men. Anxiety disorders often start during adolescence and get worse at stressful periods later in life.


Signs of Anxiety in Women
  • Constant feelings of worry and tension
  • Worrying about simple, everyday tasks
  • Inability to relax
  • Unrealistic view of problems
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Restlessness and being on edge or easily startled
  • Feeling tired all the time

3 Types Of Narcissists We All Face in Our Lifetime And How To Handle Them "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Peace Quarters

Narcissism is a term thats thrown around a lot but are you aware what it really entails?

Its someone who is fond of tearing down the lives of others.

A narcissist can hurt you blatantly or chisel away at your confidence without you realizing it.

The Different Types of Narcissists:


The Obvious One

The obvious, blatant actions are name calling, being rude, and overall cruelty. This is the easiest to detect, and we all learn not to tolerate bullies, so its very rare that anyone will let those things go unnoticed.

If someone is blatantly awful, just walk away. There arent any hidden games here, its simple, black and white. Unlike other scenarios this is pretty straight forward, there isnt a hidden agenda here, theyre mean, so if you dont want that in your life kick them out of your life.

Amazon Indians plead for help after massacre "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

BBC/FUNAI/Survival

Brazilian Indians have appealed for global assistance to prevent further killings after the reported massacre of uncontacted tribespeople, and have denounced the government cuts that left their territories unprotected.

Paulo Marubo, a Marubo indigenous leader from western Brazil, said: More attacks and killings are likely to happen. The cuts to FUNAIs funding are harming the lives of indigenous people, especially uncontacted tribes, who are the most vulnerable. (FUNAI is Brazils indigenous affairs agency).

Mr. Marubo is the leader of Univaja, an indigenous organization defending tribal rights in the Uncontacted Frontier, the area with the highest concentration of uncontacted tribes in the world.

Australian aborigines carry the DNA of an unknown human species "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Ivan; Ancient Code

New research has revealed fascinating details about Aboriginal Australians and Pacific Islanders, who according to experts, carry genetic material of an unknown human species.

The new research suggests people from Papua New Guinea and northeast Australia have traces of DNA belonging to an unidentified, extinct human species.

Apparently, there is still much that geneticists and scientists do not understand about this crucial moment in human history, and it seems that research on the subject is raising more questions than answers.

In 2016, researchers at Harvard Medical School published the findings of a comprehensive study of the human genome of all areas of the world and discovered something astounding about the Australian aboriginal population.


They appear to have genetic markers that indicate they are descendants of a yet unidentified human species.

Were missing a population, or were misunderstanding something about the relationships, Ryan Bohlender, a statistical geneticist at the University of Texas, told Tina Hesman Saey at Science News.

Light Up Morningside Park with Handmade Lanterns "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The Morningside Lights procession (photo by Karli Cadel)

Every fall, since 2012, a sea of glowing lanterns traverses Manhattans Morningside Park. The event, known as Morningside Lights, is led by artists Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles of the Processional Arts Workshop, a group dedicated to mounting immersive theater, processions, and parades. But Kahn and Michahelles do not put on these events alone; rather, they see them as opportunities for community building, and for Morningside Lights anyone is invited to make a lantern to brighten the parades path.

In the week leading up to the procession on the evening of Saturday, September 23, Kahn and Michahelles will host free lantern-making workshops at Columbia Universitys Miller Theatre, which produces the yearly event.

Last year, participants were invited to make lanterns adorned with poems to commemorate the Pulitzer Prizes centennial. This year, the theme is Harlems secret gardens the various community green spaces that have long been carefully cultivated by local residents. So if youre unable to craft your own paper plant, it will nonetheless be a sight to behold an illuminated collection of more than 100 flowers and trees floating in the park.

When: Workshop, Saturday, September 16Friday, September 22 (check schedule for daily hours); Procession, Saturday, September 23, 8pm

Where: Workshops are held at Miller Theatre at Columbia University (2960 Broadway, Morningside Heights, Manhattan); the procession begins in Morningside Park (116 Street & Morningside Avenue)

Football Stadium Evacuated due to Natural Gas Excursion at Compressor Station "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

High School football stadium evacuated due to valve failure on natural gas compressor

Valve failure led to gas leak that forced evacuation of football stadium during game

From an Article by Nate Miller, Greeley Tribune (Colorado), September 8, 2017

Firefighters clear the field at District 6 Stadium as they investigate a suspected gas leak. The game was cut short as a result of the investigation.

Officials from SRC Energy were on site of an oil and gas well in west Greeley on Friday after an equipment failure on a gas compressor and resulting gas leak forced the evacuation of District 6 Stadium during a football game Thursday night.

Just after 8:15 p.m., Greeley Fire Department firefighters were called to the site, southeast of 5011 F St. in Greeley. Greeley Fire Chief Dale Lyman said residents in the area and some in attendance at the game heard a loud noise and called 911. He said there were several calls about it.

First arriving crews heard the loud sounds associated with a high pressure gas leak. As they investigated, they discovered the leaking high-pressure line, according to a news release from the Greeley Fire Department.

As a precaution, the stadium was evacuated during a game between the Greeley West Spartans and Longmont Trojans. Lyman said District 6 stadium officials did an excellent job of quickly evacuating the stadium, once the firefighters made the request. Lyman said crews also asked Weld County dispatchers to issue an emergency notification call to residents within a half-mile radius of the well. However, while dispatchers were working to initiate the call, the gas leak was shut off, and the call was canceled.

Officials with SRC Energy came to the scene and assisted firefighters in shutting down the leaking gas line. The well was shut in and the leak was stopped at 8:52 p.m. Craig Rasmuson of SRC Energy said a valve on a compressor, which compresses natural gas into the infrastructure, failed, resulting in the loud whistle and gas leak. He said the public was in no immediate danger, as the gas dissipated in the air.

Sensitivities to oil and gas operations near highly populated areas are high in the wake of an April home explosion in Firestone. In that case, a gas flowline buried in the ground leaked gas into the French drains of a nearby home, which exploded when two men inside worked to replace a water heater. The line was thought to be abandoned, but for...

Winds strong enough to blow an umbrella inside-out have been battering the Home Counties overnight. Reports have been coming in of amazing acts of bravery and endurance from residents across the region as they battle to survive the elements.

Emergency services remain on red alert to help residents in what threatens to be yet another long day and night of abject misery for rescue crews.

A couple in Hazlemere were forced to cancel a bridge party with the people across the road, while a man in Arundel decided against walking the dog after his hat nearly blew off. A family from Guildford had to cancel their usual Tuesday night trip to McDonalds and were forced to send out for pizza instead.

A pane of glass from a greenhouse in Ruislip is said to have smashed into a thousand pieces while owners looked on, helpless against the sheer force of Mother Nature. Residents in Sittingbourne have criticised the government for not doing enough to protect their property, claiming high winds could affect their house prices.

A lady in Godalming phoned police to say a crisp packet had blown into her garden and wanted to know when a squad car would be sent round to deal with it.
Unconfirmed reports say an aeriel on one bungalow was said to be visibly shaking in the wind, while one family further down the road were forced to pick up their recycling bin after a strong gust knocked it over.

Light Up My Life "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

This post is sponsored by Lamps Plus. All opinions are my own.

When we were house hunting, one of my friends advised me to find a house that we could be happy living in as-is. She said, you'll have tons of ideas for projects and home improvements to do, and you may end up doing them all eventually, but for most people renovations aren't a quick process like on TV. It's going to take longer (and cost more) than you think, so make sure you'll be happy in the meantime. That will make the process much more fun, and less stressful on your marriage. I can already see the wisdom in her advice, because even the small changes like painting and light fixtures are taking us way longer than I thought. BUT! We are making progress, slowly but surely, and with every little change I like our house even more. Recently, we finally switched out some of our old builder grade light fixtures for pretty new ones from Lamps Plus...and they look soooo much better. Can I get a watt watt? ;) If you don't have a lot of money to spend on house renovations, but still want to do something that will make a big difference immediately, I highly recommend upgrading your lighting. It will instantly make your house feel 10x more stylish and intentional. Such a big impact for something relatively low-cost!

BitMain Apparently Releasing 8x GPU AMD and Nvidia Miners in China "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It seems that BitMain is willing to extend its presence from just the ASIC mining market as the company is apparently releasing two new devices for miners that are essentially dedicated GPU miners. For now the devices dubbed G1 with 8x GeForce GTX 1060 GPUs and G2 with 8x Radeon RX570 GPUs are only listed on the Chinese website of the company with prices only in CNY. This means that they are most likely targeted initially for the Chinese miners market and may not be sold outside of the country. Inside the server like cases we are expecting to see mining versions of the GPUs being used as this is the way to go with such solutions intended for large scale mining operations and not for small home miners. As one would expect the devices are targeted at Ethereum (ETH) miners with hashrates listed for the Ethash mining algorithm, though you should in theory be able to mine pretty much any other cryptocoin that can be mined with GPU. The first batch of GPU miners from BitMain is apparently for 500 units of each.

BitMain G1 8x GTX 1060 GPUs:
CPU: Inter Broadwell-u 3215 or 3205
Memory: 4GB SO-DIMM, DDR3 / L-1600
Hard disk: 1 x Msata 64G SSD

Kate Millet Obituary "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From The Guardian: Kate Millet, the radical feminist who launched the second wave of the womens liberation movement, died on September 6th. Millet was also an activist in the anti-psychiatry movement who spoke out against psychiatric diagnosis and commitment.

Millett had been committed to mental health institutions by her family on various occasions and she became an activist in the anti-psychiatry movement. She wrote about her experiences in The Loony-Bin Trip (1990). She also wrote The Politics of Cruelty (1994), in which she railed against the use of torture, and Mother Millett (2001), about her relationship with her mother.

An Open Letter to Someone I Should Have Expressed These Opinions to in Private "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Dear You Know Who You Are,

 I have something I need to get off my chest. I am writing you today because you need to know how I feel about the situation at hand. In addition to this, the general public also needs to know how I feel about this particular situation. I want every man, woman, and child surfing the internet in their sweat pants at 2 a.m. to know exactly how I feel and exactly what you did.

I will start this letter by letting you (and everyone else) know how much I love and admire you. I have for years. I have supported you time after time even when others told me not to. I need everyone to know I have always been in your corner. I want to make it perfectly clear that I have defended you in the past because I can defend you no longer and  Im about to spend the rest of this letter shitting on you and letting everyone know what a piece of shit you are.

I am not a heartless monster. You have pushed me to my limits and therefore pushed me to this very public confrontation that is certain to destroy your reputation forever.

Youve offended me, maybe what you did seemed small to you at the time but it was a big deal. And Im about to make what you did an even bigger deal. Because I am about to make your actions less about you, and more about a grand social issue. I would argue it is the single biggest issue of our time. What you did was inexcusable and it needs to be addressed, now. Or we are all doomed.

Related: You Need to Stop Using the Word Dumb, Its Offensive to Absolute Fucking Morons

Yes, this could have been a short 10-minute discussion just between us. But Im not trying to express these thoughts just to you. I am trying to start a wider dialog. Something think pieces will be published about, something that will go viral and will get me tons of positive and you tons of negative attention. Hopefully, someone will read this open letter and write an additional open letter back to me, creating more discussion around this massive and complicated issue. 

Despite this very long and very public accusation, I love you. This letter was not created to berate you personally. It was to hel...

State Permanently Closes Psychiatric Hospital "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From The Boston Globe: The state of Massachusetts has permanently closed the Westwood Lodge psychiatric hospital due to issues of patient safety, quality of care, and the facilitys failure to comply with Department of Mental Health requirements.

Conditions in the Westwood Lodge childrens unit have been particularly troubling, with children at one point sleeping on bare plastic mattresses in filthy rooms, children injured during fights and by broken glass, and one boy given the wrong medication for nine days, the Globe reported. The childrens unit has been closed since April 26.

The adult units at Westwood Lodge also have been cited for not having enough staff and for not properly monitoring patients. A 32-year-old Lowell man, Michael Bakios, died in his bed two years ago when staff did not check on him every five minutes as required. The oxygen equipment they tried to use to revive him was broken. Admissions to the adult and adolescent units were suspended May 12 after inspectors found continued problems.

Roadie Lives Out Lifelong Dream of Tuning Guitar in Front of Sold Out Show "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

TOLEDO, Ohio Veteran roadie Rick Bedford lived out his lifelong dream last week of tuning a guitar in front of a sold out audience of rabid fans, sources confirmed.

I do this for myself, said Bedford shortly after leaving the stage. I started setting up gear alone in my garage, just for kicks Id tune a guitar at a basement show for a friends birthday here and there, but nothing big. After a lot of hard work, I finally got the opportunity to do what I love, in front of thousands of patiently waiting fans.

Due to a novice soundboard operator and an untimely tuner malfunction, Bedford reportedly got off to a shaky start, but the pitch-perfect veteran maintained his composure on the big stage.

Ive always been anxious, but tonight was especially nerve-wracking. A couple wisecrackers yelled, Freebird! That always throws me off my game, but instead of losing my cool, I slipped into a quick Pearl Jam riff, said Bedford. I heard one dude in the crowd yell, Woo! The joy that brought him reminded me why I do this.

Fans noted Bedfords diverse musical taste throughout the 10-minute sound check.

Related:

Normally, a roadie will just use a pedal tuner, and the audience never gets to really see a glimpse into his musical background, said attendee Maria Sherman. But he tuned one guitar and hit the audience with a Slayer riff, and totally mixed it up with the next guitar and a lick from Guns N Roses.

Before exiting the stage, Bedford used the mic check to announce he would be releasing his first album, Slow Dancing In A Burning Tune, early next year. The album will reportedly consist of the opening riffs of 37 John Mayer songs.

Next Story An Alien Message To Mankind: Do You Wish That We Show Up? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Joe Martino; Collective Evolution

Were about to dive into a transmission or channeled message that allegedly came into a man by the name of Jean Ederman aka Eric Julien. Jean had been practicing projecting his mind when he came in contact with what he called benevolent ET beings, this is when he received the message. Note: we will refer to him as Eric from here on out.

Before we get into the message, its important to dive into a background about Eric, attempt to determine who he really is and whether or not his background can be considered credible. Either way even as we move through this information, we strongly suggest you use your own intuition on this to explore. Blind denial doesnt do us good in the same way blind acceptance doesnt.

A few quick things to get out of the way right away: the reality of remote viewing, astral projection, channeling, and the existence of ETs. There is a ton of credible evidence exploring these topics at a black budget and military level. These abilities are used and millions have been spent exploring them within the US military. You can learn more about CIA remote viewing programs here, the military use and study of psychic abilities here, and more about ETs and the documents to prove the reality of them in a groundbreaking film here.


With those resources laid out to help open up to the reality of how all of this is possible, we can continue with an open mind. I find it important to lay out those resources before hand because quite simply, most people do not realize that all of these abilities or pseudoscientific frauds are actually very well studied, documented and real. In fact, its likely your tax dollar paid for the extensive study and training of these very abilities.

Breaking the Shackles of Social Conditioning "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

BY SOFO ARCHON

breaking free

What does a hooligan, a kamikaze, and a racist have in common?

They all dont use their brain.

What I mean by they dont use their brain is that they dont think or, to be more precise, they dont think critically.

But its not only they that dont. In fact, most people are no different when it comes to this.

Sure, we all have our thoughts, and over the years have formed certain opinions. But how many of those opinions are merely beliefs resulting from social conditioning, and how many of them are based on our own understanding? And, of course, we know a lot of things, but how much of our knowledge comes from personal experience, and how much from parrot-like learning?

You see, from almost the day we were born, we were forced to not think. Take school, for example an institution that supposedly helps children develop their intellect yet does quite the opposite.

School forces children to stay confined in a classroom for about 8 hours almost every single day for a total of (more or less) 12 years, where they are learning things they dont enjoy learning, being forced to obey to authority figures, having to unquestionably accept what theyre being taught, not being allowed the freedom to do anything on their own without asking for permission first (even to go to pee).

As Pink Floyd would say, school conditions children to become another brick in the wall.


The official 1982 video clip of Pink Floyds Another Brick in the Wall.

I know, Im generalizing here, since not all schools are the same. But the reality is that in most parts of the world school isnt a place where critical thinking is stimulated on the contrary, it is suppressed or simply ignored. Naturally, it atrophies and becomes weak, exactly like a muscle does when pressure isnt exerted upon it.

Palm oil giant FGV will endeavor to rehabilitate peatlands it trashed in Borneo "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA After a year in which it destroyed over 1,000 hectares of peat swamp forest in violation of its own sustainability policy, palm oil giant Felda Global Ventures said it would endeavor to rehabilitate the damaged lands in Indonesian Borneo. In August 2016, FGV promised to stop clearing rainforests and swampy peatlands. But on the ground, it continued to plow through the carbon-rich environments, creating space for its oil palm plantations. In doing so, FGV violated not only its own green pledge, but also its obligations as a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO), the worlds largest association for ethical production of the commodity, found in everything from chocolate to laundry detergent. This is the first time a palm oil company has been forced by its customers to restore the forest it cleared, Greenpeace Southeast Asia forest campaigner Bagus Kusuma said in a statement. FGV, which calls itself the worlds largest palm oil producer, is listed on the Bursa Malaysia, while the Malaysian government holds a one-third stake. FGVs transgressions had been highlighted by watchdogs Greenpeace and Chain Reaction Research in April and July. Two of FGVs Indonesian units PT Temila Agro Abadi (TAA) and, to a far lesser extent, PT Citra Niaga Perkasa (CNP), both in Landak district, West Kalimantan province had cleared over 1,000 hectares (3.86 square miles) of forest and peat since August 2016, according to the reports.

Government vows to recapture information "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Householders have been warned to stay indoors and keep away from the internet by government experts worried about the dangers of information. Considerable amounts of information have escaped since the Freedom of Information Act came into law and much of it is potentially hazardous to the general public.

It isnt always safe to let information roam free, said a Home Office spokesman. The British people havent really developed much of an immune system where government information is concerned. This sort of thing may work in America, which has been governed by oiks for centuries, but the British have always shown proper deference.

Under the Act, government departments have only 20 days to fail to answer questions from taxpayers or to misunderstand the question and answer a different one instead. If they fail to meet the deadline they can be asked to look into their processes and in extreme cases apologise.

The first casualty of the truth is me, said Health Minister Jeremy Hunt. Suppose Ive opened a new hospital somewhere and on the same day my department has made a monumental balls-up of something. Which story do you think well be asked about? Now factor in a requirement to tell people the truth. Ordinary people cant handle the truth, theyd spontaneously combust. Were talking about the audience of Strictly and X Factor, you might as well speak truth to a chimp.

Information, Hunt added, is rather like the grey squirrel. All too many people thought they were cute until they started replacing British red squirrels by giving them a deadly virus. The British way of life is a precious red squirrel, the Freedom of Information Act is a virus, or possibly a grey squirrel, and secrecy is a fence between the squirrels. We need to keep the fence intact.

Why, Hunt asked, do government departments have mottos in Latin? Because nobody speaks Latin any more. Likwise in Ancient Rome, they used Greek. The Greeks presumably used something even older and less comprehensible Welsh, probably. Once ordinary people start questioning us about the mundane stuff it wont be long before our extraterrestrial lizard overlords are common knowledge and then . . . oh, bugger.

What Is Fair Use?: A Short Introduction from the Maker of Everything is a Remix "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Back in 2010, we began featuring a series of videos from filmmaker Kirby Ferguson. Called Everything is a Remix, the four-part video series explored the idea that (to quote from one of my earlier posts) "great art doesnt come out of nowhere. Artists inevitably borrow from one another, drawing on past ideas and conventions, and then turn these materials into something beautiful and new." That applies to musicians, filmmakers, technologists, and really anyone in a creative space.

If you would like to watch the original series in its totality, I would refer you to the video below. Above, you can now watch a new Kirby Ferguson video that delves into the concept of Fair Use--a concept defined by the Stanford Copyright and Fair Use website essentially as "any copying of copyrighted material done for a limited and 'transformative' purpose, such as to comment upon, criticize, or parody a copyrighted work." They go on to say:  "Such uses can be done without permission from the copyright owner. In other words, fair use is a defense against a claim of copyright infringement. If your use qualifies as a fair use, then it would not be considered an infringement."

Needless to say, fair use is an important concept if you're making your own videos on Youtube, or if you're a teacher using media in the classroom.

By the end of his short video, if you're still not clear what Ferguson means by Fair Use, you're in luck. He's giving you the opportunity to submit questions to be answered by "a real live lawyer in a follow up video." He also includes extra resources at the end of the segment.

A First Glimpse of Rami Malek as Freddie Mercury, Recreating Queens Great 1985 Live Aid Performance "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Few filmmakers have ever figured out how to make a motion picture about an already larger-than-life personality, and personalities haven't come much larger in recent history than Freddie Mercury's. Talk of a movie about the Queen frontman, who died in 1991, has gone on for years: Dexter Fletcher came up as a potential director, and for the role of Mercury both Ben Wishaw and Sacha Baron Cohen have at different times been attached. But now the film has entered production, having found a director in Bryan Singer, he of the X-Men franchise, and a star in Rami Malek, best known as the lead in the television series Mr. Robot.

But can Malek or indeed anyone currently living convince as Mercury? The first piece of evidence has surfaced in the form of the clip at the top of the post (sorry, it's no longer available), shot on set as the cast recreates Queen's 1985 comeback performance at Live Aid. The band "seemed to intuit right from the start the importance of the day, though they were very nervous backstage.




But once onstage they completely own it, even more so Freddie Mercury who rises to the occasion as a front man and as a singer, giving one of his best performances," writes Ted Mills of the real concert video, which we featured just this past May here on Open Culture. The show opens by going straight into"Bohemian Rhapsody," Queen's signature eight-minute rock opera, which gives the new movie its working title.

Even going by just a minute and a half of footage, shot shakily, in low resolution, and at a distance, it must be said that Malek does look to make an uncanny Mercury, right down to that d...

red shifts may not be due to an expanding universe.

Suggested session format for discussion workshops based on the paper:
Is the tide turning? Policy proposals for youth work: A discussion paper.
In Defence of Youth Work, Summer 2017

In Defence of Youth Work created the Is the Tide Turning? discussion paper in summer 2017 in order to encourage discussion around the potential revival of open youth work, particularly in the aftermath of the 2017 General Election.

We would like to encourage individuals and groups who read the paper to organise discussion workshops based on the paper to discuss its key tenets. We hope to gather feedback from these events to feed into our analysis of the responses to the paper and the way forward for open youth work. We will collate and analyse this feedback and share it widely including at our 2018 annual conference.

The session format suggestions below are intended as a template for those who want some guidance on how they might run such a workshop. Please dont see them as a rigid formula but do organise your workshops and gather evidence in any form to send back to us.

We imagine that the workshops will be centred around the three questions that are contained within the summary (and perhaps also any sub-questions that emerge in initial discussions):

  • Should local authority youth services be reopened, or are there different ways that state-supported youth work can be organised?

Woman Claims a Fruitarian Diet Helped Her Lose 80lbs, Cleared Her Acne, And Reversed Her MS "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

What if the secret to losing weight sustainably, healing from debilitating diseases, and cultivating more self-confidence was to eat more fruit? The sweet, luscious flesh of plants is what 33-year-old Rebecca Rosenberg claims helped her lose 80 pounds, heal from a disease that left one side of her body biconnected from the brain and clear up her acne.

In 2014, Rosenberg was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). The Austin, Texas, resident thought it was the end of the line for her, considering she was obese and riddled with unexplained sickness and fatigue. Said Rosenberg on the MS diagnosis: I woke up in the hospital one morning and the left side of my body, from my neck down, didnt connect to my brain. I couldnt use my arm or leg. It was terrifying.

Incredibly, everything changed upon adopting the strict diet. I had heard about these crazy insane people who were raw vegans and I thought there was something wrong with them mentally, she said. The more I read, the more I heard about people curing diseases and that stuck in my mind. I felt doomed and decided I didnt have anything to lose.

The diet switch was made in 2014. Rosenberg traded plates of egg sandwiches for platters of fruits and chicken dinners for gargantuan salads with fruit-based dressings. As is expected, Rosenberg first got sick from the detox symptoms. Reportedly, she craved hot meals for weeks. But month after month, the diet got easier.

Within 18 months, Rosenberg shed 80 pounds, dropping to 132 pounds. I was morbidly obese before and I ended up losing 80lbs, but I dont look skinny or emaciated. Im healthy. Not only did she reach a healthy weight, her...

Without a doubt, the world is a better place than it was 100 years ago. No longer must women secure their place in the world through marriage, and no longer is slavery legal. Additionally, the advent of technology has allowed people from all around the globe to connect, and this is fueling change at an exponential rate.

40 Of The Most Clever Social Issue Ads That Will Make You Stop And Think "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Every item and concept in the world is a double-edged sword. Food can either nourish someone or it can contribute to their demise. A knife could be used to open a box, or it could serve a nefarious purpose and be the tool used in a murder. Similarly, advertisements may educate and inspire, or they can be pervasive and obnoxious (which is most often the case). Fortunately for us all, the following 30+ social issue ads are the insightful, compelling kind.

Each unique advertisement employs an effective advertising strategy to capture viewers attention. Rather than strive to sell a product, however, the ads promote seek to promote a concept with the ultimate goal being to propel social change. As Bored Panda points out, many of the ads appeal to peoples emotions, as studies have shown the best way to inspire action is to get them to empathize with a situation, person or cause.

Many of the advertisements were funded by specific organizations with outlined causes. Others were paid for by companies that seek to raise the bar when it comes to consumerism. All have something in common, though, and that is the desire to inform people about prevalent issues so a better world may be created for future generations. If you think the world could use more insightful advertisements that raise awareness about global issues, please share this compilation.

Following are 40 clever social issue advertisements that will definitely make you think:
