Hypothetical: Could N. Korea Nukes Reach State of Washington & How Far Could Radiation Spread Is LA "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Could nukes from N. Korea reach the US as I read online they could reach the State of Washington. If it happened, how far would the radiation spread? If you lived in Los Angeles like me and that happened (I know many of you do not live in cities) do you think as a result there would be endless rioting, martial law, etc., or would life be the same as always? Would there be a possible chance of the radiation reaching Los Angeles? If so, I just plan to immediately get out of California by plane...

Mirrors Reflect the Sky in an Australian Salt Flat Lake "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Mirror 11, 2017

Mirror 11, 2017

Since 2003, Australian photographer Murray Fredericks has made at least twenty journeys to the center of Lake Eyre, a desert lake with an extremely high concentration of salt. Fredericks drags all of his equipment out into the barren landscape, capturing the dramatic sky reflected in both the inch-deep water and his rectangular mirror. The images are breathtaking color-based works, my favorites featuring a double horizon locked within the mirror and the water below.

In the Vanity series, rather than reflecting our own surface image, the mirror is positioned to draw our gaze out and away from ourselves, into the environment, driving us towards an emotional engagement with light, colour and space, said Fredericks about the series.

Images from Vanity are included in his solo exhibition titled Salt:Vanity at Hamiltons Gallery in London through June 14, 2017. You can see a behind-the-scenes look at Fredericks photographic process and journey into Lake Eyre in the short video above. (via Ignant)

French Anti-Fascist Front to be Built Around Racist Austerity with a Human Face "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NaziMacron

PARIS Informed and reasonable people across France and in sympathetic imperialist countries are urging all French voters to come out for Macron in the Second Round of the French elections, in which voters will be asked to choose their preferred candidate in a system of run-off voting which, for the unfamiliar, basically prolongs the experience in countries without run-off voting.

Individuals who describe themselves as socialist, but not in a mad way are united around the view that Macron must be fervently supported to prevent Le Pen from being elected, although they are less able to articulate why the Le Pen dynasty is such a consistent threat to their estimably reasonable political positions, election year after election year.

What they did know was that Macron will certainly be better for the people living in France:

Ive done the maths, and my estimates indicate that we may be able to reduce the number of people killed on the basis of social policy which devalues their very lives by as much as a third if they are murdered for their social class rather than their race, colour, creed, etc. explained utilitarian philosopher and stats boffin Jules Liechtenstein.

The Museum of Failure: A New Swedish Museum Showcases Harley-Davidson Perfume, Colgate Beef Lasagne, Google Glass & Other Failed Products "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Here, in Silicon Valley, failure isnt always failure. At least according to the local mythology, its something to be embraced, accepted, even celebrated. Fail fast, fail often, they say. And eventually youll learn enough to achieve real success.

On June 7th, the Museum of Failure will open in Helsingborg, Sweden. There youll find the remains of failed innovation. Google Glass, the Sony Betamax, the Apple Newton, Nokias N-gagetheyre all there. Ditto a bottle of Harley-Davidson Perfume, Coca-Cola BlK (aka coffee-flavored coke), and a Colgate Beef Lasagne TV Dinner.

Above, curator Samuel West highlights items in the collection. Bringing together over 60 failed products and services from around the world, the collection provides unique insight into the risky business of innovation. Fittingly, the museum is free.

Letter: Research shows fluoride a hazardous chemical "IndyWatch Feed Health"

I thought fluoridation was safe until I did my own research. The truth is that many fluoride-associated health effects were never researched before government endorsements. Fifty years passed before the smoking/cancer link emerged from the scientific literature into popular acceptance. We can wait for government to catch up with fluoride science or protect ourselves now by avoiding and rejecting fluoridation.

Fluoride, neither a nutrient nor essential for healthy teeth, is a drug with adverse side effects. Consuming a fluoride-free diet doesnt cause cavities, but consuming too much fluoride can create dental fluorosis, which now afflicts 58 percent of adolescents, according to the Fluoride Action Network. Dentists advertise theyll cover fluorosed teeth, possibly for a hefty fee.

Even at low levels added to public water supplies, fluoride can harm the thyroid, damage bones and harm the fluoride-allergic or fluoride-intolerant populations. Especially troubling is the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys acknowledgement that fluoride is a chemical showing substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity. Currently, according to the Fluoride Action Network, 300 animal studies and 50 human studies show fluoride can alter the brain, something that was never even considered when fluoridation began.

The question isnt if fluoride damages the brain but at what level. We are all guinea pigs in this ongoing human fluoridation experiment while not being properly informed or giving consent.

Albany County already enjoys a low decay rate (25 percent) despite a 13 percent fluoridation rate, according to New York state Department of Health statistics.

Carol S. Kopf

The writer is media director of the Fluoride Action Network, (and NYS CoF) which spearheaded the effort that stopped 29 years of fluoridation in Levittown

This Photo Book on Concrete Buildings Comes in a Concrete Slipcase "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Photographer Gabor Kasza has unveiled a new photo book titled Concrete passages about closeness and coldness and a couple of songs. Its a study of unfinished concrete buildings and surfaces, and the book comes with an unusual physical form that mirrors its content: the slipcase is made of concrete.

Its a photobook where the content is in accord with its design, Kasza writes. A poetic photo series about relationships, which is molded into a unique book and a special edition, where the book is set in a thin concrete slipcase.

I designed a piece to echo its content, somewhere between a damaged, unfinished volume and a contemporary minimalistic shape, the photographer says. The look of the book gives the same unfinished impression as the buildings.

The photos in the book were made two years ago and feature not only concrete, but a relationship between a couple highlighted by the color red. This is also mirrored in the design of the book itself, as the ratio between plain and red pages corresponds to the ratio of the color red in the photos.

Heres a sampling of some of the photos in the book:

Its a Great Time to Be a Homeschooler "IndyWatch Feed Health"

homeschooler

By 

Homeschoolers are a diverse bunch. Our teaching approaches and learning philosophies vary. Our politics run the gamut and our visions of education reform differ greatly. Yet, despite these contrasts, homeschoolers are remarkably similar. I recently asked a large, eclectic group of homeschooling parents why they chose this education option for their children. Key homeschooling features like freedom, and time, and flexibility, and individualization were common drivers for all.

Of course my first question was: What about socialization?

When I first heard about homeschooling, it was 1998. I was a senior in college writing a research paper on education choice and the rising homeschooling movement, and became fascinated by this option. A college classmate of mine connected me with her family members who were homeschooling, and they invited me into their home to observe and ask questions. Of course my first question was: What about socialization?

I remember the moms calm and eloquent response, pointing out the obvious difference between being social and being socialized. She described their vibrant and engaging homeschooling networks, community involvement, and neighborhood activism. She explained that much of the socialization that happens in schools is not positive and can lead to malevolent behaviors, like cliques, and bullying, and unhealthy competition. Her homeschooled daughter graciously played her violin during my visit, and was one of the most curious, articulate, and polite young children I had ever met. I was hooked.

Pediatrician Threatens To Call Child Protective Services On Parents Who Dont Vaccinate "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Pediatrician Dr. Mike Ginsberg posted a stern message about his opinion of anti-vaxxers on his Facebook page and it has caused an outrage. The message at the time was directed to the countless parents who had come to question the recommendations to vaccinate in his office.

In my practice, you will vaccinate and you will vaccinate on time, Ginbergs post, which has since been taken down, begins. He continued on to say that parents who choose not to vaccinate will be asked to leave his practice. Whats more: I will file a CPS [child protective services] report (not that they will do anything) for medical neglect, too,

he writes.

Here is a screen shot of the actual message as it has since been taken down because the amount of people contacting his office about the post.

Bega Valley: Fluoridation debate far from clear with petitions to council, closed door meetings "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The divisive nature of water fluoridation was put in stark relief this week for Bega Valley residents.

On Tuesday, petitions containing an estimated 2000 signatures of residents against adding fluoride to the shires drinking water were presented to the council.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday councillors met with representatives from NSW Health to discuss the benefits of fluoride, but did so behind closed doors.

While that decision is understandable given the shouting match that would likely occur if such a discussion was open to the public, questions are being asked as to the transparency and trustworthiness of the community consultation process.

Fraser Buchanan from the Bega Valley Residents and Ratepayers Association said having a closed meeting over a major and highly controversial public health decision gave him and his association no confidence in the councils process.

He also questioned the role of Hunter H2O in the community consultation given it was also a company tasked with installing fluoridation systems he claimed.

No wonder theres a lack of trust [on this issue], Mr Buchanan said.

The council has previously said that while Hunter is a multi-disciplinary water company, as the successful tenderer to develop and administer the councils fluoride Have Your Say submissions website, it did so in a professional and ethical manner.

A reported 330 submissions from the public were received by Hunter H2O during the consultation period.

Mr Buchanan said a petition by the anti-fluoridation group Clean Water For Life had 1400 signatures, while one organised by Dorte Planert of Tathra had a further 300, and Rob Slazenger of Bermagui also organised a separate petition containing 320 signatures.

All were presented to the council on Tuesday (its not known whether the same signatories appear on multiple petitions).

Council is considering adding fluoride to the Tantawanglo-Kiah and Brogo-Bermagui water supply systems as part of upgrading its infrastructure.

Wednesdays forum with NSW Health representatives gave councillors an opportunity to ask hard questions of those making the pro-fluoride argument according to Cr Jo Dodds.

I am taking this issue extremely seriously and being extremely stringent on what information comes into my decision making, Cr Dodds said.

Only proven scientific data and ethical considerations at the highest level are going into my weigh scales.

Before & After: A 120-Square-Foot Trailer Becomes A Tiny Shop "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Cat Call Collective, on Design*Sponge

Bekah Bohlen had always dreamed of owning a shop and producing her own line of stationery, but with her husband finishing up his Ph.D and a possible move in the not-so-distant future it seemed impractical to think about putting down roots. Thats when the idea of a tiny, mobile shop came to her. I loved the idea of having a space to test out new products, get direct customer feedback and support other small brands like my own, Bekah shares. And with a moveable shop, she didnt have to worry about where she and her husband ended up.

Tackling the build-out and getting funding for her idea would be another challenge. Bekah took her ideas and applied for the Girlboss grant. Id delved into the world of letterpress printing while apprenticing under the immense talent and knowledge of Kristen Ley, owner of Thimblepress in Jackson, MS, but this grant opened the door and allowed me to dream bigger than what would have been financially possible on my own. My grant application was a total dream pitch complete with sketches of our hypothetical shop, fake advertisements, the whole bit. It was of course exciting, but a bit daunting when we received the grant and realized we were actually going to have to create this imaginary thing from the ground up, Bekah laughs.

After winning the sought-after grant, she and her husband, Martin, who is a research scientist at Duke University by day and a woodworker by night, got to work on the 120-square-foot shop which is now known as Cat Call Collective. What took about six months to finish did not come with a lot of downtime. We worked evenings and basically every weekend, and thank goodness for our sweet friends that came by in the dead of summer to lend a hand, Bekah says. Designed entirely by the Bohlens, they started by purchasing an 18 x 8 flatbed trailer, creating a crude pencil sketch of the layout and measurements and got to work. Staying organized and on budget was important, so getting creative was a must when i...

Prince Philip to retire from casual racism "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Prince Philip will no longer be available to stereotype foreigners after this August, Buckingham Palace has announced. The Duke, who turns 96 this month, said that the time has come to hand over duty for pulling slitty-eyes faces at Chinese people to a younger generation of insensitive upper class twits.

Palace insiders are tipping Prince Andrew to take over part of his fathers role, as he already has a huge number of appointments to play golf with sociopathic dictators in Central Asia and could potentially combine that with a few light-hearted comments taken out of context about spics, wops and fuzzy-wuzzies.

However, despite his experience of dressing up as a Nazi for a fancy dress party, Prince Harry is so far resisting calls for him to take a wider role in royal racism. The government has already got offending the Germans well in hand, said a palace spokesman.

Officials have also denied suggestions that the decision is connected to the Dukes health, although both he and the Queen did suffer a bout of convulsive vomiting after sitting through an audience with Theresa May last week.

Monday nights with Leslie, BAMs remarkable retrospective of the pioneering filmmaker and artist Leslie Thornton, are coming to an end. All told, it will have been possible to greet Mondays doldrums with a back-to-back slate of avant-garde cinema for six straight weeks seven if you count the Migrating Forms screening of Peggy and Fred in Hell: Folding. Week after week, the series has chewed through Thorntons five decades of work, sometimes with rather particular, fun screenings that paired her films with those by contemporary filmmakers or directors that influenced her: Su Friedrich, Werner Herzog, Andy Warhol, Kaneto Shind and The Wooster Group. Accompanying these screenings, Thorntons talkbacks have been reliably freewheeling. The series has had a generous, loose, yet weighted feeling about it: long-lived and so welcoming to casual attendance (by experimental filmgoing standards), but also featuring seldom-screened films and therefore critical and unmissable. Its been an opportunity to dig into a richly dynamic, challenging oeuvre with the director...

Surreal Bronze Sculptures of Fractured Figures Visualize Emotional Despair "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Fractured Bronze Figures Isabel Miramontes Surreal Sculptures

Spanish sculptor Isabel Miramontes creates amazing works of art inspired by the human body. Fascinated by poses and impressions, the artist creates fractured bronze figures and surreal sculptures that elegantly evoke a sense of movement and a deeper visualization of the human psyche.

Each of Miramontes' fragmented figurative sculptures presents the artist's interest in implied motion. By segmenting the forms into strips and spirals, she is able to experiment with the capabilities of the human body. Though their torsos are twisted, the figures' faces and limbs remain intact. From this contrast arises a sense of drama, abandon and tension, as the forms must reconcile the fact that are somehow both dreamlike and human.

In addition to her collection of sliced up bronzes, Miramontes also creates surreal sculptures that play with proportions and perspective. This series of figurative works also conveys the artist's tendency toward experimentation, as their bodies are elongated and their movements are exaggerated. While many of them seem exhausted, they also appear animatedanother prevalent juxtaposition within the artist's practice.

The figures bear the weight of humanity, the artist's statement explains, astonishingly defying their bronze origins with a definite fluidity of movement and a spiritual density omnipresent in her work. Sculptural yet fluid, Miramontes's bronze figures illustrate the artist's interest in both the human body and the human condition.

Artist Isabel Miramontes sculpts fractured bronze figures that expertly imply physical and emotional activity.

With the stage set for another Obamacare repeal and replace vote later today, all eyes will be anxiously watching to see whether the day will end in another miserable, embarrassing defeat or whether a new healthcare bill will finally be sent to the Senate.

Republicans have become increasingly confident throughout he week that they have the votes after several moderate Republicans switched from no to yes after changes were made to allow for more funding to cover patients with pre-existing conditions. According to Bloomberg, the Trump administration projected confidence about the outcome at a White House dinner last night after an aide joined the dinner late, saying the count had reached 218, two more than needed to guarantee passage. The aide added that he thought the final tally would top 220 votes, according to two people who attended.

Female Muslim Clerics Issued Fatwa Against Child Marriage "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Female Muslims

Indonesia: Indonesia has an estimated population of over 260 million people and it is the world's fourth most populous country, as well as the most populous Muslim-majority country at 87.2% in 2010, with the majority being Sunni Muslims. The fatwa is an Arabic word, and it literally means "opinion". Muslim scholars are expected to give their "fatwa" based on religious evidence, not based on their personal opinions. Therefore, their "fatwa" is sometimes regarded as a religious ruling or religious edict.

At the end of three-day conference of female Islamic clerics they issued an unprecedented fatwa against child marriage in Indonesia in a bid to stop young girls from becoming brides. Fatwa is very influential among Muslims but not legally binding. Maternal mortality is very high in Indonesia. We as female clerics can play a role on the issue of child marriage, conference organizer Ninik Rahayu told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

In issuing the fatwa, the women clerics cited studies saying many Indonesian child brides could not continue their studies once wed and half their marriages ended in divorce. Besides quitting school, it also increases the risks of exploitation, sexual violence, domestic abuse and death in childbirth. Increase in education equals decrease in child marriages and Indonesian girls mustnt quit their studies for their own good.

In Indonesia, there are a high number of child brides and it puts the most populous Muslim-majority country among the top 10 countries worldwide. Thursdays fatwa, or religious edict, called underage marriage harmful and said its prevention was mandatory. Female clerics urge the government to raise the minimum marriage age for girls to 18 instead of currently minimum of 16 years. About 50,000 girls wed before they turn 15 according to the United Nations childrens agency UNICEF.

Fatwas are issued regularly in Indonesia, but usually by the Indonesian Ulema Council the highest Islamic authority in the country which is made up almost entirely of men. This is a rare example of women assuming a lead role in religious affairs in Indonesia. Most of the clerics experts in Islamic sacred law and theology were from Indonesia, but speakers travelled from as far away as Kenya, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia to take part in the conference.

The congress also issued two other serious edicts against environmental destruction and sexual violence, which the clerics said are against Islamic teaching and fundamental human rights.

Celibacy Rules Could Change Amid Shortage of Priests "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Priests

The churchs celibacy requirement is obviously contributing to a shortage of priests and that requirement could be changed in England and Wales. The call for a review of celibacy as a condition of priesthood comes after Pope Francis signaled last month he was open to the possibility of ordaining married men under specific conditions. Pope Francis has said last month that the Catholic Church may consider ordaining married men who could potentially then work in remote areas faced with a shortage of priests. The issue is expected to be raised at a synod next year on vocation.

We must think about whether viri probati (a proposal that has been talked about for years, but has never been put into practice) are a possibility, Francis said. Clearly what Church Teaching and Tradition means by viri probati, that is approved men who are to be successively chosen to continue the ministry of the Holy Orders after those who appointed them have died, and it is not what the innovators have co-opted to mean tested married men.

The Movement for Married Clergy (MMaC) is urging national commission of bishops, clergy and laity to discuss ways of tackling the shortage of priests. The MMaC secretary, Chris McDonnell, said: Were asking bishops to recognize the issue and examine possible solutions in good faith. We have a very advancing age profile of serving priests, and low numbers of people going into seminaries, said McDonnell. At the moment, its just about manageable. But in five years time its going to be very different. We want to use this window of opportunity to look at what could be done.

According to Catholic Church figures, 25 men entered training for the diocesan priesthood in 2016 for England and Wales compared with more than 150 in 1985, although the pace of decline has slowed in recent years. Last year it was announced that a third of the 62 Catholic churches in north Wales would close by 2020 because of a shortage of priests under the retirement age. Celibacy is a matter of church discipline rather than inflexible church dogma so its not surprising that married men were priests in the Catholic Church up until the 12th century.

On the other hand, Cardinal Vincent Nichols, archbishop of Westminster and leader of the church in England and Wales, has said he sees no need for change. I dont think we are in a [vocations] crisis in England and Wales. he told the Irish Catholic in February, adding: I personally value the celibacy of the priesthood.

From their base in the American Southwest, Postcommodity members Raven Chacon (in Albuquerque), Crstobal Martnez (in Phoenix), and Kade L. Twist (in Santa Fe) are well positioned to view the realities and projections of life along the USMexico border. In 2015, the collective installed 26 oversized scare-eye balloons, decorated with colors and motifs important to indigenous medicine, along a two-mile stretch of land between Douglas, Arizona, from Agua Prieta, Mexico, bisecting the wooden fence that separates the towns. Like many cities that line the border, Douglas and Aguas Prietas were once one, and Postcommodity saw its ephemeral installation, Repellent Fence / Valla Repelente, as a recuperative gesture meant to bring both sides of a land cut in two together again.

Jeremy Corbyn beats Theresa May! (In battle of the cardboard cutouts on Amazon) "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Only marginally less dimensional than the real thing, Jeremy Corbyn has taken an early lead over Theresa May in the battle of the cardboard cutouts on Twitter.

Why youd want a lifesize cutout of a party leader actually, dont answer that is another matter.

Corbyn boasts a five-star review, ahead of the Tory leaders two. You can also get a cutout of Nigel Farage (the only place youll find him standing in this election). Dont tell Tim Farron, but we couldnt find one of him

As if often the case with these things, the proper fun is to be had with the reviews on Amazon.

First up, the Maybot.

Didnt find it very strong or stable.

As effigies go this burns very well. Highly recommended.

Firstly, I did not order this it turned up at my door uninvited. It did not integrate with the household and only knew a few words of English.. strong and stable will of the people and Brexit means Brexit.
It does not appear to come with the promise of a 350 million guarantee and I was told that the product insurance was invalid and I would not be getting a refund! The Trade Description office agreed that all claims were grossly inaccurate and constituted a fraudulent advert. This will be settled through the courts!

And Corbyn.

Honest description doesnt spin round even when the wind blows in a different direction, has a calming influence, not glossy what you see is what you get.

Inside the very thin wrapping it smelled rather bad, like it had been festering for some time. The colour reproduction was poor, had a noticeable red tinge. Snapped immediately when placed under pressure. Sticker on the back says Made In The USSR so clearly old, outdated stock.

Buying Games Cheaper With Bitcoin from G2A "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

We have already purchased games using Bitcoin (BTC) as a payment method from Steam as the popular service has been accepting purchases made with the crypto currency for more than a year already. Steam however is not the only place where you can pay for games with Bitcoin, there are others also accepting crypto currency payments and you can even get a better deal. One such example is the G2A Game Store where you can purchase game keys for a better price, including games from Steam, but not limited (they added BTC support even before Steam). The idea here is that the website does not directly sell you games, but connects you to users selling them online and only acts as an intermediary processing the payments and helping resolve any issues if there are such.

There are many different payments methods supported by the G2A Store and Bitcoin (BTC) is only one of them. You can also pay directly with a Credit Card, PayPal as well as many others. We are however most interested in Bitcoin and the payments using the crypto currency are being processed by BitPay as a payment processor (the same one as on Steam). The checkout process is quick and easy, though you might still need to wait a bit for the confirmation of the transaction (especially wit lower fee) on the Bitcoin blockchain. Regular confirmation should just take a couple of minutes, but it can take more if the blocks are currently full and recently the number of transactions has increased and the waiting queue for transactions is bigger.

Hear James Joyces Finnegans Wake Set to Music: Features 100+ Musicians, Including Pioneering Punk Bassist Mike Watt "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In a post last year on an ambitious musical adaptation of Finnegans Wake, I noted thatwhen most in bafflement over the Irish writers final, seemingly uninterpretable, workI turn to Anthony Burgess, who not only presumed to abridge the book, but wrote more lucid commentary than any other scholarly critic or writerly admirer of Joyce. In his study ReJoyce, Burgess described the novelor whatever-you-call-itas a man-made mountain as close to a work of nature as any artist ever gotmassive, baffling, serving nothing but itself, suggesting a meaning but never quite yielding anything but a fraction of it, and yet (like a tree) desperately simple.

Joyce did seem to aspire to omniscience and the power of godlike creation, to supplant the old father, old artificer he beseeches at the end of A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man. And if Finnegans Wake is a work of nature, it seems to me that we might approach it like naturalists, looking for its inner laws and mechanisms, performing dissections and mounting it, flayed open, on display boards. Or we might approach it like poets, painters, field recordistslike artists, in other words. We might leave its innards intact, and instead represent what it does to our minds when we confront its nigh-inscrutable ontology.

This latter approach is the one adopted by Waywords and Meansigns latest release, which brings together recordings from over 100 artists from 15 different countriessome semi-famous, most thrillingly obscure. Joyces book, explains project director Derek Pyle, is the kind of thing that demands creative approachesfrom jazz and punk musicians to sound artists and modern composers, each person hears and performs the text in a way thats totally unique and endlessly exciting.

Next Story 4 Huge Benefits Of An Undisturbed First Hour After Birth "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Alexa Erickson; Collective Evolution

The first hours after a baby is welcomed into the world may have short- and long-term consequences. Evidence has shown that newborns who are placed skin to skin with their mothers immediately after birth have better respiratory, temperature, and glucose stability, and significantly less crying that stipulates less stress.

Because the first hour after birth is so momentous, we have named it The Sacred Hour at our hospital, explains Raylene Phillips, MD.

What might the first moments after birth be like for the newborn infant? If a fetus has been fortunate enough to spend his fully allotted 266 days in the womb since conception, he has had the luxury of having all his emerging developmental needs met. The uterus and the placenta have provided warmth, protection, nutrition and oxygen, as well as close and continual proximity to the mothers heart and voice, Phillips continues.


The unborn fetus finds the womb a natural habitat, and so, when entering the world after birth, the mothers body and breasts take over the function of the uterus and placenta. Along with providing such things as nutrition and warmth, the close proximity ensures protection and familiarity to the mother. The newborns new natural habitat is being skin to skin with the mother.

Blair supports rewriting records from before 2005 "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Former Prime Minister, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, has surprisingly come out in favour of erasing pre-2005 World Records; particularly those that relate to WMD or that other travesty in the sand beach volleyball. Subsequently, European Athletics hope to make a clean break from previous doping scandals or scandals involving a dope called Tony.

The current record holder for the number of lies told under oath, Mr. Blair also holds records in synchronized diving into a war, wrestling (with your conscience), followed by the 100m dash out of office, pursued by the Geneva Convention.

Mr. Blair would like to be judged on his athletic contributions since 2005, which involved High Jumping ethics, Fencing with Human Rights activists and Rowing the Labour Party back to the middle ground.

It will mean that other British competitors are due to lose their records, although Nick Clegg is said to be in favour, provided it includes 2010-15.

I am writing to inform you of large-scale human rights violations and systematic physical attacks on the civilian population within all countries of the world using modern electromagnetic weapons and neuro-weapons, often in combination with non-consensual implants and covertly administered nanotechnology.

What makes these weapons particularly dangerous and devastating for societies is that they act covertly. Using the fact that electromagnetic waves propagate without being noticed by humans and can penetrate walls, these weapons can be used to destroy human life and permit the perpetrators to escape detection.

The systematic and clandestine nature of the crimes and their striking similarity around the world indicate that it is a global program run by the international military-intelligence complex committing premeditated mutilation, torture, systematic subjugation and a silent genocide of parts of the population. It amounts to crimes against humanity and a global death camp program.

I am writing to formally request that under you statutory duty to investigate crimes against humanity, protect the civilian population from acts of terrorism, communicate matters of national importance to your government and uphold human rights, or otherwise, you pass on this message to the relevant authorities and you yourself act within your means to ensure that all victim cases are investigated and that these large-scale criminal operations are shut down in your country by 1st June 2017.

The actions you take in response to this communication will be followed up over the coming months and, should it turn out that you chose to ignore this notification and your duties to act to stop these crimes and to support the victims, you might be charged with, for example, official misconduct, malfeasance in office, dereliction of duty, conspiracy, aiding and abetting crimes against humanity, high treason or your legal systems equivalent of such offences. Should that be the case, you will be called to account and held liable in one of the upcoming court or tribunal cases for crimes against humanity.

The attacks on victims are launched from mobile directed energy weapon units as well as telecommunication infrastructure such as cell towers and satellite systems. This is an integrated weapons system that...

Horrific: Ranchers attack and mutilate Indians who demanded their land back "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

This cellphone photo shows the ranchers on their way to attack the Gamela. A police car accompanies them.
CIMI

Thirteen Brazilian Indians have been hospitalized after a brutally violent attack by men armed with machetes in the Amazon.

One man appears to have had his arms severed in disturbing photos released to Survival International.

The attack was in retaliation for the Gamela Indians campaign to recover a small part of their ancestral territory. Their land has been invaded and destroyed by ranchers, loggers and land grabbers, forcing the Gamela to live squeezed on a tiny patch of land. The Gamela are indigenous to the area in Maranho state in northern Brazil.  

Powerful agribusiness interests reportedly including the Sarney landowning family have been in conflict with the tribe for some time. The family includes a former president of Brazil and a former governor of Maranho state.

Eyewitnesses say that the ranchers gathered at a barbecue to get drunk, before surrounding the Gamela camp, firing guns, and then attacking with machetes, causing grievous injuries. Local police are reported to have stood by and allowed the attack to happen.

The Gamela have received death threats in response to their attempts to return to their land. In a declaration released by Brazilian NGO CIMI, they said: People are mistaken if they think that by killing us theyll put a stop to our fight. If they kill us, we will just grow again, like seeds Neither fear nor the ranchers bullets can stop us.

The attack came just days after massive indigenous protests in Brazils capital against proposed changes to Brazils indigenous laws, which could have disastrous consequences for tribal peoples.

Land theft is the biggest problem tribal peoples face. Around the world, industrialized society is stealing tribal lands in the pursuit of...

Bitcoin Rockets to $1437, 1602 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Support Our Sponsors - Flygrip - www.FlyGrip.com Noble Gold & Silver - https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Life Change Tea - Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.getthetea.com Bitcoin prices blew through the roof this morning to an all-time high of $1467 per Bitcoin. The surge is attributed to strong demand in Japan where the digital currency has been deemed a legal means of payment. Bitcoin has nearly tripled in value over the past year and was trading at only $209 just 20 months ago a 709% increase. Recently, Chinese authorities forced Bitcoin exchanges to start charging trading fees. However, this is seen as a positive development as it is a stamp of regulatory imprimatur by the Chinese government, which guarantees Bitcoins eventual total acceptance because the government now has skin I in the Bitcoin game. The spectacular rise now puts Bitcoins market cap at close to $25 billion, putting its net worth on par with large corporations. A further boost to Bitcoins price rise was a request by the BATS exchange the second-largest U.S. equity exchange behind the New York Stock Exchange is now backing Bitcoins full acceptance into the U.S. market by filing a request for the US Securities & Exchange Commission to review its March decision to not approve a Bitcoin-tracking ETF set up by the Winklevoss brothers. Despite non-official acceptance in the US, Bitcoin ATMs are now sprouting up across the nation and around the world, with 1,153 now in place across the US. Billionaire investor Mike Novogratz, who is holding 10% of his investments in Bitcoin and other currencies, told a recent meeting in New York of the Harvard Business School Club that Bitcoin could rise to $2,000. Hes not the only one predicting a continued spectacular rise. Bobby Lee, CEO of BTCC, a Shanghai-based Bitcoin exchange says that the price could increase to $5,000 to $11,000 by 2020.

In Honor of Crimea 2014 (and my waking up to how USA-NATO CORP tries to do regime change) my favorite Enjoykin VIDEO (plus 2 other Enjoykin favorites) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Crimea

Enjoykin is a video producer in Russia (I presume, since all his videos are in Russian). In 2014 he came out with a video centered on newly appointed Crimea chief prosecutor, Natalya Poklonskaya (related Kp blog post). I was just enthralled with his productions, and I found a couple others I liked, which I post here, along with the Natalya Poklonskaya one (now with 34 MM views!). I love the energy of these videos. And I love hearing the Russian.

All of this coming out in 2014 was a key time for myself, in that the Ukraine overthrow events helped wake me up to how USA-NATO CORP does regime change. Very awakening for me.

The UNs Plan to Halt Population Growth by Turning Nature Against Us "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

The United Nations has been planning a depopulation agenda for decades according to many conspirators, but few have been able to describe so clearly, just what that plan entails, until now. Even with open admission from the UNs Executive Secretary of the Framework Convention on Climate Change, Christiana Figueres, that depopulation is part of the green agenda to save the planet from global warming an agenda one should adopt cautiously before jumping aboard its trains of doom many have called the depopulation idea quackery.

Vandals ravage Mother Nature (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Could someone explain why torching an unused forest lookout post is a more serious crime than dynamiting a sandstone arch, millions of years old, inside of a National Park? Burning down a federal building can incarcerate you for 20 years; destroying a veterans monument could jail you for 10 years; but the willful and intentional vandalism of irreplaceable geological features and landscapes in our National Parks could lock you up for 5 years, if considered a felony, or only 6 months, if deemed a misdemeanor. Painting graffiti on a California freeway sign carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail, along with a $5,000 fine, but defacing unique rock formations with marker pens and acrylic paint in seven National Parks resulted in no monetary fine, and only two years of probation, along with 200 hours of community service. In September/October 2014, Casey Nockett went on a vandalism spree where she painted a blue-haired profile of a womans head on a rock viewpoint overlooking Crater Lake, OR, as well as painting and marking up rock formations at Yosemite National Park, CA, Canyonlands National Park, UT, Rocky Mountains National Park, CO, and elsewhere. Her defense was Its art, not vandalism. I am an artist. She decided to plead guilty to seven misdemeanor charges of damaging government property which, along with the above penalties, also resulted in her ban from entering U. S. National Parks during her probation period. The sandblasting and chemicals needed to remove her artwork not only come from

Scientists Have Proven That Negativity Literally Makes Cancer Grow Inside The Body "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Daily Health Post

Everybody feels negative emotions once in a while, but these emotions have a stronger effect on your health than you may realize.

Every time you think about regrets, experience resentment or replay bad memories in your head, your body suffers just as much as your mind.

Thats why harboring negative emotions can lead to devastating long-term disease. But there is one simple solution: forgiveness.

Trouble is, our culture seems to perceive forgiveness as a sign of weakness, submission, or both. This makes it harder to actually do the work to forgive people whove done you harm.


Clearing Negative Energy: Why Its Worth It

According to The Greater Good Science Center, psychologists generally define forgiveness as a conscious, deliberate decision to release feelings of resentment or vengeance toward a person or group who has harmed you, regardless of whether they actually deserve your forgiveness. (1).

Why Social Media can Never Fill the Void in our Depressing Lives "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From VICE: According to Marcus Gilroy-Ware, author of Filling the Void: Emotion, Capitalism & Social Media, societys widespread use from social media stems from and is exploited by late capitalism.

Gilroy-Ware argues that the impoverished life of the contemporary worker precarious, alienated, bored is exploited by social media, which promises emotional fulfillment in its endlessly regenerating timelines.

But in trying to fill the void with Facebook and Instagrams stimuli, we trigger an infinite regression, flittering between our miserys cause and effect: We are seeking that something to make us feel better in a place we will never find it, trapped in a circularity that is essential to the workings of consumerism.'

Over the past five years, the Choosing Wisely campaign has compiled detailed but easily accessible resources to help patients ask these and other questions about hundreds of medical tests and treatments that are often either overused or that provide little benefit and in some cases cause harm. The recommendations come from several dozen medical societies in the United States and around the world.

Staggering Levels of Health Spending in U.S. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From the Center for Health Journalism: In 2015, the U.S. spent a staggering $3.2 trillion on health care. This budget is often spent ineffectively; our spending could be curbed by investing in more thoughtful, cost-effective care.

Although behavioral health spending accounts for $187.8 billion annually and represents the fourth most expensive health care sector, patient outcomes are poor. Emanuel writes that treating behavioral health conditions like depression and anxiety is often a haphazard process, and that only about one-third of all patients diagnosed with severe depression have seen a mental health professional in the last year, and only 20 percent of patients with moderate depression have seen a mental health professional in the last year. As we have described in previous Slow Medicine posts, too often U.S. clinicians rely on expensive and modestly effective pills for managing behavioral health conditions that would respond at least as well and with fewer side effects to simple lifestyle therapies coupled with counseling.

Humanitys war to free itself from Satanic Khazarian mafia rule is heading towards final victory but some tough final battles lie ahead of us.

NSA and CIA sources in Asia both confirm that leading Satanist Leo Zagami and his goons were in Japan seeking, among other things, to stage a sarin gas attack on the Tokyo subway system to blame on North Korea The other thing going on in Japan is that cars carrying members of the Japanese royal family have come under attack in several incidents in recent days, according to right wing sources close to the imperial family.

Hardcore Benefit Show to Save Old Theater Utterly Destroys It "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

FRANKENMUTH, Mich. Attempts to save the historic Patterson Theater ended in devastation last night after a hardcore benefit show resulted in dozens of injuries and tens of thousands of dollars in property damage, according to building management.

Authorities believe they traced the genesis of the destruction to a well-intentioned Facebook post by local show promoter Bryan Deathcock Tingle.

Hey gang, the Patterson Theater is in trouble! wrote Tingle on his Deathcock Productions page last week. Developers want to demolish this beautiful old building. I bet if we come together with a benefit show, we could save it and have one of the coolest all ages venues around. Im going to start booking some of the best hardcore bands around. Its gonna be off the hook.

Damage to the historic theater began quickly, as A Corpse More Comely guitarist Todd Keller tripped offstage while attempting to crowdsurf, landing headfirst in the beautiful linoleum-tiled orchestra pit while kicking out three footlights. Morale remained high, however, as the next band, Omnicidal Riot, inspired a mosh pit that sent four people through the stages historic rococo front paneling.

Its just great to see people coming together, said concertgoer Ariana Gomez while an unknown bassist smashed his guitar through the original hardwood stage flooring. This is about community this is about respecting spaces that let us express ourselves.

While event organizers were attempting to scrub vomit and blood from the cushioned seats of the balcony, Wreck of All Edmunds frontman Oric Weber climbed up the scaffolding and swung from the theaters beloved bronze chandelier, bringing it crashing down.

Related:

Turns out this buildings pretty unsafe, said Weber, now nursing a broken wrist. Like, Im pretty sure I could sue the shit out of em for this. Ill have to talk to my dad. Hes a lawyer, and he specializes in shit like this.

The mastermind of the evening, Deathcock Tingle himself, later appeared onstage to thank all attendees and participants, and to implore whoever stole the cash box to please give it back.

Seriously, just return it...

29 Signs You Are Born To Be A Spiritual Healer "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Conscious Reminder

When I first started developing my gifts, it was because I was told by Spirit through another intuitive, a medium who happened to be my sister, that I had the gift to heal others and I was a healer. I was told that this was the familial, ancestral gift of shamanism that had been passed down to me.

Its tough to say what would or could have happened if I had not received this information at the exact time that I did, but one thing is certain, the gift was already present and evident through many signals and clues existent in my life.

If youre a healer, chances are there are signs, signals, and cues all around you. The key is knowing where to look.

You dont need to know a medium or see an intuitive reader of any kind to know that you have a healing gift.

4 Signs We Do Not Live in a Free Country "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Gary Z McGee; Waking Times

A man without a government is like a fish without a bicycle. ~Alvaro Koplovich

Just as a fish does not need a bike, a man does not need a government. Especially not an oppressive one. As it stands, our government is cruel and arbitrary; certainly not free. Ironically, in a form of double speak amidst a flare of smoke and mirrors, statist propaganda has us believing that we live in a free country. When its more accurate to say that the government uses the term freedom as a distraction to keep people docile and under control. Let the sheep believe they are free and they wont fight to become free. Meanwhile, covertly fence them in with outdated laws and an oppressive militarized police state, while convincing them its all in place for their own protection. Easy: Then it just takes care of itself. The conditioning and brain-washing kicks in with just a little boost from cognitive dissonance and soft slavery enslaves itself statists gonna state. Lets break it down.

When Grocery Stores Go Empty, These Four Foods Will Help You Survive "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

The only thing preppers fear more than masses of unprepared people during an emergency, is being one of those people. Thats why our ultimate nightmare scenario would be not having any non-perishable food on hand during a serious disaster. However, theres plenty of reasons why an otherwise prepared person might not be prepared when the SHTF.

You could be out-of-town or out of the country, visiting family members who arent preppers. Or perhaps youre having financial problems. So maybe youve had to dip into your food supply, or if you prefer buying canned food over freeze-dried food, you havent been able to restock items that have spoiled. Or perhaps youre new to prepping, and you havent gotten around to building up a food supply.

Whatever the case may be, you should ask yourself, what would you do if you were one of those people who race to the grocery store at the last-minute during a disaster? Before you answer that, you have to consider the very real possibility that by the time you reach the grocery store, the shelves will be at least partially stripped.

The first food items that will sell out mostly consist of things that are already cooked or prepared in some way, including canned foods, frozen dishes, and bread. Fresh meat and eggs would also disappear pretty fast, despite the fact that they need to be cooked.

Ideally, you want to avoid this scenario altogether by prepping beforehand. In The Preppers Cookbook, Tess Pennington highlights key strategies for building an emergency pantry. This takes planning, so if you havent already done so, start today. Ideally, you want to store shelf stable foods that your family normally consumes, as well as find foods that are multi-dynamic and serve many purposes. These are the 25 foods...

Should You, Could You, Prepare For World War 3? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

world war 3I cant ignore the ominous tone of headlines on Drudge Report as well as articles across the internet that a surprise nuclear war, a World War 3, is a possibility. Admittedly, with the current leader of North Korea heading up a standing army of 1.1 million strong, with another 8.3 million in reserves, anything is likely.

Oh, yeah. Those pesky failed missile tests. No doubt some of them were actual failures, but what if the goal was only to see how far into the atmosphere the missile could reach? Armed with a nuclear warhead, that launched missile may have a chance of creating an electromagnetic pulse near, or over, the American homeland. Read One Second After by William Forstchen to get an idea of what life in a post-EMP world would be like.

Its all too easy to mock Kim Jong-un his haircut, portly build, somewhat vacant stare, but as Ive taught my kids, someone with an IQ of 48 can kill you just as easily as someone with an IQ 3 times that. Kim Jong-un has managed to have his brother assassinated, has brutally cleansed his government of the tiniest sign of dissent, and seems fully in charge of an isolated country of some 25 million citizens.

As of this writing, residents of Hawaii are being told to take this threat seriously and some top leaders in the military are suggesting installing a missile defense there.

Why is it so difficult to imagine him taking on the United States via a missile attack? And if Kim Jong-un backs down, there are significant threats brewing in the Middle East, and Putins Russia continues to play its role as Americas arch-rival.

The main problem as I see it is a world that is more unstable than at any time in my lifetime, with war being a very real possibility. Sometimes it even seems there are some in our federal government pushing for war.

If Men Are Paid So Much More, How Come My Girlfriend Always Has Money To Lend Me? "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

I believe in equal rights for all Americans, be they men, women, or even brown people. What I dont believe in though is being manipulated by a bunch of greedy broads about some so-called, wage gap. Think Im just a sexist pig? Keep reading, sweetheart, for indisputable evidence that the wage gap does not exist.  

Seems like every goddamn day I hear some feminazi harping on about, wage inequality for women and I just have one question. If men really get paid so much more, why does why girlfriend always have money to lend me?

Answer me that, you militant, man-hating lesbos. Seriously, you probably just need to get laid and youd stop bitching so much about this clearly made up issue.

Case in point. My girlfriend, bless her heart, works just as many hours at her little career as I do at the bowling alley. Yet, here I am barely scraping together beer money while shes throwing down rent checks like its no big deal, thus stripping me of my masculinity. Now you tell me whos really the oppressed one?

Some PMSing hoes will even try to tell you that women are paid 78% of what men are paid. How can she be making 22% less than I do when while she can somehow afford her own car and Im still over here having to get picked up by Skids anytime she wont let me use the car? Explain that one, honey.

Now, I know some people will probably say that Im just being some kind of, anti-progressive jerk off. But thats simply not true. Im all about destroying societys expectations of what a man should be. In fact, I frequently let my girlfriend pay for dinner. Hows that for gender norms, huh?  Besides, she knows that Ill totally get her back for it just as soon as Skids gets me the money he owes me. Now how about a smile, pretty?

Anyway, you got an extra smoke? Im quitting but its OK when Im drunk.

Bush/Blair sex tape to be leaked "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

An agreement has been made between a Government inquiry, Cabinet Secretary Sir Jeremy Heywood and Electric Blue (the soft core porn show), to release the infamous footage of the British electorate getting shafted. While elements of the transcript will be withheld, the chilling Chilcot Tape contains graphic footage of democratic accountability taking it every which they can by George You know what the W stands for Bush, Tony Lovelace Blair and a soiled copy of the US constitution.

There has been some speculation that continued lapses of memory demonstrated by both men are evidence that rohypnol may have been involved. Certainly neither can recall the couple doing it doggy style, with Blair adopting a coquettish yet supplicant poodle pose. Although, George Bush is alleged to have only turned to the UK to assist in his military action after being rebuffed by Kim Kardashian.

Reminiscent of Paris Hiltons sex tape, there is also grainy night vision footage of soldiers blundering around in the Middle East dressed in fetish combat gear. The inquiry has been given full access to the steamy session between the two leaders, with chairman Sir John Chilcot forced to ask for regular breaks with an aging gym sock. Mr Blair, who appeared in a basque and suspenders before the inquiry to justify his decision to take the UK to war against Saddam Hussein, admitted he hoped the leak would boost his flagging career like Abi Titmuss.

Mr. Blair expects to launch a book deal, reality TV show and Middle Eastern peace process on the back of the media frenzy surrounding his bare-faced cheek and cheeky bare-arsed peek. Both Bush and Blair have conceded that they may have mislead the UN, caused thousands of needless deaths but both drew the line at appearing in a future sex tape with Katie Price.

FORMER PRESIDENT OF MERCK LED SECRET BIOWARFARE PROGRAM, INFLUENCING EXPERIMENTS ON AMERICANS "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"


Merck & Co. is the worlds largest vaccine manufacturing corporation, and is one of the largest pharma companies in the world. They created such things as the MMR vaccine, and the HPV vaccine Gardasil. As a corporation that has affected the lives of almost everyone around us in the Western world, with most people receiving their vaccinations that are known to do damage, we should know their history. In this article, we will examine Mercks connection to biological warfare, and the implications of that connection. Merck & Co. is not to be confused with the German Merck KGaA, but they both originate from the original German Merck. Merck was founded in 1668, in Germany. By 1887, a US division of Merck called Merck & Co. was set up in New York by George Merck. George Merck moved to NY in 1891. In April 1917, as the US entered the Great War (WWI), the government announced the seizure of corporations affiliated with Germany. Merck & Co. was seized, but George Merck and partners founded a McKenna Corporation to bid on Merck as it was put up for auction, and they managed to buy Merck back in 1919, fully separating from the other Merck in Germany (as far as we know). From that point, Merck made efforts to stay boldly on the side of the American war effort, and perhaps that influenced their involvement with the US biological warfare program during the peak of World War II. In 1925, the same year Nazi chemical monopoly IG Farben was created, George Merck passed his company onto his son, George W. Merck. George W. Merck grew up in a privileged position, using the workshop of Thomas Edison as a child and inheriting his position as the president of the company. He would become Mercks president for 25 years, all throughout World War II: and he was given a central leadership position in the US biological warfare program during the same years he led Merck, retiring from the company years after his alleged retirement from biowarfare. It was George W. Merck who led biological warfare work as the head of the War Research Service, the department in charge of Ft. Detrick, while still being president of Merck. According to Wikipedia: During World War II, he led the War Research Service, which initiated the U.S. biological weapons program with Frank Olson.According to MIT Press: By midsummer, three candidates had rejected an offer to head the new group: economist Walter W. Stewart, who chaired the Rockefeller Foundation, geographer Isaiah Bowman, president of Johns Hopkins University, and economist Edmund Ezra Day, president of Cornell University. Finally, in August, chemist George W. Merck, president of the pharmaceutical firm Merck & Co., accepted the position. The innocuously named War Research Service (WRS) started out in mid-1942 with an initial allocation of $200,000. Wide contacts with major biolo...

The Sun blew it big time today and wrongly reported the death of Prince Philip.

As we write this the story is still available in Google News but not on the site:

Amazing headline too: etc etc

Clicking on the story gets this huge WHOOPS! which isnt the apology the Palace will probably be looking for.

The publication of this story was caused by massive Twitter speculation which was largely based on a Daily Mail story.

Theres still meant to be a palace announcement at 10 but BBC have confirmed it has nothing to do with the Queen or Philips health.

Maybe theyre finally admitting theyre lizards?

Or making the same gag EVERYONE is making on Twitter?

Anyway. If youre still read this far why not have some of Philips worst gags that we started preparing when we saw everyone go mad for Prince Philip death speculation.

[Review] Fisher Bullet Space Pen- The Ultimate All Weather Survival Pen? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Im going to review an American classic, a pen for all seasons and conditions. The Fisher Bullet Space Pen is recognizable to anyone who has ever owned one or read about the history of Space Pens.

Fisher Bullet Space Pen

It is a simple yet high-tech writing instrument that all preppers should consider for their use. Its a timeless classic that is undeniably practical and elegant at the same time. A pen rich in history and promise in the future right at your fingertips. So how can something so far-out be down-to-earth and practical, welllets take a closer look.

History

Back in 1948, before there was a US Space Program, an inventor from Southern California named Paul Fisher decided to create a new type of pen. It was made from solid aluminum and had rounded ends, making it look like a bullet. It was both robust and stylish, so much so that the original design is featured in the New York Museum of Modern Art! Not many pens have that pedigree. Over time the design evolved into the contemporary pen we see today.

Today

The Bullet Space Pen of today looks similar to the original one except it is made from brass and uses a pressurized ink cartridge. According to the manufacturer, the Bullet is still their best-selling pen. Its easy to see why too, it is a timeless writing instrument that works well in all conditions. It can write upside down, in zero gravity, underwater, and from -30F to +250F. Plus, its made right here in America by a small company that values its employees and is dedicated to product quality. So a while back, I got a few for myself and decided to incorporate them into my lifestyle.

Product

The pen is comprised of four pieces; the front, the back, the cap, and the pressurized ink cartridge. The exterior components are rounded and the pen comes in different finishes. You can also select different ink colors and tip sizes as well if you are so inclined. The cap must be taken off in order to write, which extends the length from 3.75 to 5.25 long. This makes is just a little bit shorter than an average pen, but a whole lot more durable.

Malcolm Turnbull Trump

In a sign of Australias relative insignificance in the eyes of the US, the White House has sent its administrative assistant Donald Trump to meet with Malcolm Turnbull in New York, rather than leader Vladimir Putin.

Mr Putin was said to be unavailable, possibly meeting with leaders of other nations. Rupert Murdoch was also unable to attend.

The White House tried to put a positive spin on the news, saying that anything Trump and Turnbull discussed would be passed up the chain of command.

Mr Trump who some see as a potential future leader of the US reassured Australia he had a direct line to Mr Putin and would ensure the two spoke about any actions that came out of the meeting.

LTC Continues to Move Up After Coinbase Adds Support for Litecoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Litecoin (LTC) has been going up in terms of price in the last few weeks for a number of reasons including the upcoming SegWit support, Lightning Network and now the addition of trading pairs for the crypto currency by Coinbase. There was also a report that in the past 24 hours, over 1 million $LTC has been traded on GDAX. This is finally something that is really making LTC interesting again after the last couple of years when nothing much was happening and Litecoin wast moving much. This push is also helping the manufacturers of Scrypt ASICs such as the Innosilicon Dominator A4 and the more recent Bitmain AntMiner L3+.

Watch Queens Stunning Live Aid Performance: 20 Minutes That Will Give You Goose Bumps (July 15, 1985) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The last people anyone expected to come out of that gig as being the memorable ones was Queen, said Bob Geldof in an interview, looking back at the bands stunning 24 minute set at Live Aid on July 15, 1985. In front of 72,000 people in Wembley Stadium and millions watching worldwide, Queen resuscitated their career with a selection of hits and new material.

The band, as Roger Taylor says in the mini doc below, was bored and in a bit of a trough. They also had been criticized for playing Sun City in South Africa during the reign of Apartheid.

Going into Live Aid, a lot of the artists didnt know what to expect of the entire event. Many, including Bob Geldof himself, wondered if the event would flop. But Queen more than any of them 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.




In that short set, Queen gives a full concert worth of energy and the audience responds. Not all were Queen fans, but by the end everybody had become one, singing along to We Are the Champions and We Will Rock You. Across the Atlantic, the 90,000 strong Philadelphia audience followed suit, watching the jumbotron simulcast.

Do you now how hard it is to get someones attention whos on the other side of the room? asks Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters in this other short doc on the set. Imagine a stadium and making them sing along with you.

Emerson on Individual Integrity and Resisting the Tyranny of the Masses "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Masses are rude, lame, unmade, pernicious in their demands and influence I wish not to concede anything to them, but to tame, drill, divide, and break them up, and draw individuals out of them.


When you adopt the standards and the values of someone else, Eleanor Roosevelt wrote in her timeless meditation on happiness and conformity, you surrender your own integrity [and] become, to the extent of your surrender, less of a human being. And yet we exist within a society, as individual particles that coagulate into the so-called masses, awash in societal standards that often permeate our consciousness without our conscious consent or even awareness. How, then, do we mediate between the inescapable social dimension of our lives and the unassailable integrity of individual personhood?

Wedged in time between Sren Kierkegaards keen insight into the psychology of conformity and Nobel laureate Elias Canettis incisive treatise on crowds and power was another intellectual titan of the human spirit, Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803April 27, 1882), who addressed this question in an essay titled Considerations by the Way, found in his indispensable Essays and Lectures (public library | free download).

OK but seriously this would make a great netflix sitcom, ending each week with Roman soldiers shaking their fists at that pesky christ says @Stavvers.

Also reminds us of this classic Anne Frank anecdote:

In one of my films they had a young bit player who was very pretty, but a terrible actress. However, she was very ambitious and decided that if she got some experience in the theater, it would help her career. Fortunately, she had a wealthy boyfriend who backed a road company of The Diary of Anne Frank just so she could play the leading role Anne Frank.
Before the opening in Cleveland, Ohio, they had three weeks of intensive rehearsals, and every day was more and more frustrating for the director. The actress was impossible. She couldnt remember her lines, her delivery was amateurish, and the more she rehearsed, the worse she got. The director was ready to quit the show, but she told him she was a poor rehearser. Believe me, she assured him, when I face that opening-night audience, itll all come together.

She invited me to the opening night, but I was not all that anxious to see her perform, and I had even less desire to be in Cleveland in February. A friend of hers and mine did go, and later he told me what Id missed.

When the curtain went up she blew her opening lines, and her performance went downhill from then on. By the intermission the audience was totally fed up with her. Then, in the first scene in the second act, when the Nazi soldiers broken into the home, overturning furniture and shouting, Where is she? Wheres Anne Frank?! the whole audience yelled back, Shes in the attic!

Closeness after birth "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A Finnish study exploring parent-infant closeness and separation has thrown more light on how hospital practices both promote closeness and cause separation in the first couple of hours after birth. And its kind of paradoxical, because the researchers discovered that, while staff aimed for mother-infant and father-infant closeness and promoted this through promoting practices such as skin-to-skin, many of the hospital routines caused parents to be separated from their child (Niela-Vilen et al 2017).

This isnt a new finding. I remember listening to medical sociologists and social scientists talking about how hospital practices cause separation two or more decades ago. But the results of this study are important because they show that, even though staff are trying to promote closeness, the structures of the system itself (which often prioritise routine measurement and collection of data) are preventing that from happening, or at least reducing the time in which it can happen.

If we want things to change, its the structures that we need to address.

 

Niela-Vilen H, Feeley N and Aexlin A (2017). Hospital routines promote parentinfant closeness and cause separation in the birthing unit in the first 2 hours after birth: A pilot study. Birth: Issues in Perinatal Care. DOI: 10.1111/birt.12279

 

The Research

Background: Despite the evidence of multiple benefits of early skin-to-skin contact, it does not always happen and infants are separated from their parents because of different hospital practices. The aim of this study was to explore parentinfant closeness and separation, and which factors promote closeness or result in separation in the birthing unit in the first 2 hours after birth from the point of view of staff members.

Fake 'Alien Abductions' Conducted by Shadow Government Para-Military Operatives (MILABS) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

It should be noted that virtually all of the lurid reports being palmed off on the public as examples of alien misbehavior are actually secret psychological warfare operations by human rogue military-intelligence units.

These renegade military-intelligence units kidnap civilians without legal authorization or justification. These units drug those they kidnap, (often experiencers).

These renegades deliberately intimidate, interrogate, physically abuse, and even gang-rape the civilians they kidnap.

These covert-operations military-intelligence units then use brainwashing techniques to make the civilians they kidnap forget about the military kidnapping, while the renegades hypnotically implant a false memory about the horrific experience as an alien abduction.

Fairfax Axes 1/4 Editorial Jobs: Promises Australian Journalasm Wont Suffa "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

fairfax job cuts

All of our papers is in good hands, says a statement released today by one of the two remaining employees at Fairfax Media.

The statement, hand-written on the back of an old envelope, reassured the public that the organisations reporting would continue to be feerless, indapendant and, above all, real good.

Fairfax CEO Greg Hywood could not be reached for comment, and instead released a statement which read: Im sorry, but you have reached todays official announcement limit. To read more about what is necessary to sustain high-quality journalism please subscribe Now 25% off!

Protests against the cuts have been met with solidarity across publishing outlets, with BuzzFeeds team creating a, Take This McChicken Quiz to Find Out Which 9 Publications You Should Boycott This Winter post earlier today.

On the bright side, journalism graduates will remain unaffected by the governments decision to lower the HELP repayment threshold, with none expected to meet the $42,000 per year income benchmark in their lifetimes.

Experience the Benefits of Bois de Rose Oil "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Prized as a decorative tree and used to make furniture, chopsticks and show pieces, rosewood is a versatile and durable tree that grows abundantly in Brazil.1 But rosewood is more than just a raw material used in manufacturing. The popular fragrant oil of the same name is extracted from its wood. Keep on reading to learn more about rosewood oil.

What Is Rosewood Oil?

Rosewood oil is extracted from Aniba rosaeodora, an evergreen tree that's indigenous to Peru and Brazil. Rosewood, also called "bois de rose," is a member of the laurel (Lauraceae) plant family along with camphor, cinnamon, bay and cassia.2 This aromatic tree can grow up to 40 meters high and is distinguishable by its reddish bark and yellow flowers.

Many rosewood rainforests have been cut down to accommodate the high demand for this sturdy lumber, although legislation now requires planting a new rosewood in place of every tree that's been cut down.3

Rosewood oil has a characteristic aroma that's warm, spicy, woody, fruity, floral and enlivening.4 This characteristic aroma makes it an established ingredient in high-end perfumery and soap-making, an industry that was especially intensive during the early 1900s, which caused deforestation of the tree.

Due to rosewood oil's high price, however, manufacturers turned to cheaper alternatives, such as Chinese Ho oils from Cinnamomum camphora, as well as synthetic linalool. This allowed rosewood forests to thrive once again.5, 6

Uses of Rosewood Oil

Rosewood oil's alluring fragrance has been widely lauded in the perfume industry, but its therapeutic properties are less well known. Aromatherapists use it to help treat depression, as it is said to impart feelings of happiness and strength. Rosewood oil also helps calm the mind and prompt hormone secretion. It also works as an aphrodisiac as it stimulates your body and libido, allowing you to relax and let go of stress and mental clutter.7

Can Valerian Root Help You Sleep Better? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Insomnia is defined as a medical condition involving difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep through the night. While aggravating in and of itself, insomnia can also lead to or exacerbate many other health problems, ranging from fatigue and an increased risk of accidents to a heightened risk of diabetes and cancer.

According to the latest estimates, insomnia may affect upwards of 70 million American adults, with men reporting a higher incidence than women.1

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third of American adults fail to get at least seven hours of sleep on a regular basis,2 which is associated with an increased risk of chronic ill health and mental distress. As noted by Dr. Wayne Giles, director of CDC's Division of Population Health:3

"As a nation we are not getting enough sleep. Lifestyle changes such as going to bed at the same time each night; rising at the same time each morning; and turning off or removing televisions, computers, mobile devices from the bedroom, can help people get the healthy sleep they need."

Another really crucial lifestyle aspect that can have a profound impact on your ability to sleep is sunlight and artificial light exposure during the day and night. Getting appropriate light exposure at the appropriate time of day which I'll discuss further below is perhaps one of the most important factors that needs to be addressed if you're having trouble sleeping.

One of the worst things you can do is reach for a sleeping pill. That said, certain natural supplements may be helpful as a temporary fix while you address the root causes. Here, I'll review a couple of supplements known for their beneficial influence on sleep.

Valerian Root Nature's Valium

Frequently referred to as "nature's Valium," valerian root (Valeriana officinalis) has a sedative effect and has been used in traditional medicine to promote relaxation and sleep for at least 2,000 years. Some of the sedating compounds in valerian root include:

Can Young Blood Help an Old Brain? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

During the past 10 years or so, intriguing scientific studies on mice have suggested certain aspects of aging, including brain function, can be slowed or reversed when older animals receive blood from younger ones.

A common technique used in such studies is called parabiosis the process through which the circulatory systems of lab mice are surgically conjoined, co-mingling their blood. In studies dating from the 1950s, blood from young mice seems to have a rejuvenating effect on older mice.

Most recently, researchers have attempted to isolate proteins in human blood plasma that may be responsible for improving brain function in old mice infused with it. In 2016, at least two startup clinics were launched in the U.S. to bring the concept of "young blood" to human beings through pay-to-participate clinical trials, mainly as a proposed anti-aging strategy, but also in hopes of counteracting chronic disease.

At one such clinic in Monterey, California, called Ambrosia, if you are age 35 or older, you can pay $8,000 to receive an infusion of 1.5 liters of plasma from a donor between the ages of 16 and 25.1 (Note: These infusions do not involve actual parabiosis.)

PayPal co-founder Peter Thiel is one of the prominent personalities fueling the buzz around how blood transfusions may help fight aging. He reportedly has expressed interest in Ambrosia, and told Inc. he finds the mice studies involving parabiosis to be "really interesting."2

While the results with mice related to the infusion of young blood have demonstrated positive outcomes, particularly related to learning and memory improvements, the question yet to be answered is, "How might this practice of transfusing blood from the young to the old benefit human beings?"

Young Human Blood Improves Brain Function in Old Mice

A 2017 study published in Nature3 presents evidence that a protein found in human blood plasma from young people helps improve brain function in old mice. For decades scientists have posited that "young blood" can reverse the symptoms of aging, such as loss of memory and reductions in muscle function and metabolism.

While previous studies using mouse-to-mouse transfers of "young blood" have demonstrated its rejuvenating properties on older mice, researchers suggest t...

Colorado House Explosion Kills Two Adding Urgency To Setbacks Debate "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Firestone (Colorado) House Explosion Adds Urgency To Setbacks Debate

From the Colorado Pols News Service, April 28, 2017

Denver7 reporting from the aftermath of a massive explosion last week in Firestone that completely destroyed a new home, killing two people and severely injuring two othersan explosion that occurred less than 200 feet from a 20-year-old oil well owned by Anadarko Petroleum:

A Houston-based company announced just over a week after a fatal home explosion in Firestone, Colorado that it would shutter production from 3,000 vertical oil wells in the area.

Words cannot express how saddened we are that this occurred in a community where many of our employees, their families, and friends live and work, Anadarko Petroleum Corporation Chairman, President and CEO Al Walker said. We share the communitys gratitude for the courageous response of neighbors and nearby construction crews who quickly came to the aid of the family, as well as the first responders and others who made sure surrounding homes were kept safe.

Anadarko confirmed the company operates 3,000 units of an older-model vertical well. One such unit, drilled by a previous operator in 1993, is just 200 feet from the site where a home that recently exploded was recently built.

The bodies of two community members were pulled from the rubble days after the April 17 explosion. Two others continue to recover in a hospital.

Anadarkos acquisition of wells originally drilling by much smaller operators makes them responsible for defects in the drilling process they didnt commit. Its critical to keep in mind that the cause of the explosion in Firestone has not been conclusively determinedbut the size and power of the blast would seem to rule out residential gas lines. That a new home was built less than 200 feet from an existing oil well is just another example of the problems the rapidly urbanizing Front Range faces dealing with both new and a legacy of oil and gas drilling.

And as the Colorado Springs Gazettes Peter Marcus reports, the timing of this disaster is notable given debate that took place this year in the state legislature:

We should take a cautious approach until we know for sure, said Rep. Mike Foote, D-Lafayette, who sponsored legislation this year that would have required oil and gas operations to be located at least 1,000 feet from schools and other high occupancy buildings.

The legislation died on a Republican party-line vote

This whole situation is tragic. My heart aches for the family that lost loved ones and had others injured in the explosion and fire, said Sen. Matt Jones, D-Louisville, who also sponsored the failed setback bill in the legislature this year.

White South Africans Are Preparing For The Slaughter and Removal of All Whites Within Five Years "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

genocide-skulls-bones-death

Back in March, the President of South Africa made a shocking suggestion, which left many white landowners fearing that they may face a race war in the near future. In a speech, Jacob Zuma announced that he wanted the government to begin confiscating white owned lands, before redistributing them to black South Africans.

Zuma wants a pre-colonial land audit of land use and occupation patterns to help decide which lands need to be taken, and has said that We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution. Its believed that Zuma is calling for this radical action in response to the rise of a rival political party known as the Economic Freedom Fighters, who have long called for the confiscation of white owned lands.

Obviously, this kind of talk doesnt bode well for the future of South Africa. You have the leaders of the first and third most popular political parties, both of which promote socialist ideas, openly declaring that they want the government to steal from an entire racial group. Since these political parties wouldnt be in power unless they had some degree of popular support, its clear that black South Africans are increasingly turning against their white neighbors. Its a perfect recipe for genocide.

Its conditions like that which have spawned organizations like the Suidlanders; a massive civilian-run civil defense group that is dedicated to protecting Afrikaaners in the event of social collapse or civil war. Theyre currently getting ready for the possibility of a government implemented genocide of white South Africans. One of their leaders recently spoke to Infowars, and explained how they plan to respond to that threat.

This conversation is part two in the Voices from the Frontline blog series that tells the stories of how pesticides and industrial agriculture directly affects the lives of people across the country.

Claudia Angulo is a mother from Orange Cove, CA, whose kids attend schools near heavy pesticide use on citrus groves. In collaboration with the local nonprofit El Quinto Sol De America, a journalist helped Claudia conduct a biomonitoring study of her son and they found over 50 different pesticides in his body. Claudia has since become a leader and activist within her community for pesticide reform, and the migrant education program recently nominated her for parent of the year.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Hosts Annual Youth Wellness Conference "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

STANDING ROCK INDIAN RESERVATION  What started more than 14 years ago as an effort to unite and inspire the youth of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has blossomed into an annual event that now features youth leaders that started the movement that has inspired the world in voicing its opposition against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Hundreds of youth from the Oceti Sakowinthe seven bands of Lakotagathered for a day of inspirational presenters, events and round table discussions to address community needs.

Those presenting at the youth conference included Bobbi Jean Three Legs, the youth organizer that organized a youth run that eventually ran across the country to Washington, D.C. to voice its opposition against the Dakota Access Pipeline. The youth runners would inspire thousands to travel to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in the later part of 2016.

When we started to run across the reservation, we never thought we would make our way to Washington, D.C., said Bobbi Jean Three Legs. Originally, we intended on running across the reservation to raise awareness and when people started supporting us we kept on running with our original destination to Lincoln, Nebraska to the regional headquarters of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Coalition of Large Tribes (COLT) Strategy Meeting Updates Members on Indian Issues at the Federal Level "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) said that tribes need a louder voice in Washington D.C. He pledged to help bring tribal issues to the forefront.

Published May 4, 2017

WASHINGTON The Coalition of Large Tribes (COLT) convened for a strategy meeting to hear updates on issues from Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.), a member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, and the House Natural Resources Committee staff.

The meeting was held on Monday, May 1, at the National Indian Gaming Associations Stanley Crooks Center on Capitol Hill.

President Russell Begaye serves as the Chairman of COLT and Cheyenne River Sioux Chairman Harold Frazier is the current COLT Vice Chairman. COLT represents more than 60 percent of all tribal lands in the United States. The coalition is a partnership of federally recognized tribes whose land base is larger than 100,000 acres.

Staff Assistant for Sen. Daines (R-Mont.), Sophie Miller said that based on a Government Accountability Office report, there will be an oversight hearing on May 17, addressing high-risk issues relating to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Bureau of Indian Education (BIE).  Miller said they hope President Trump will address these issues during this hearing.

Although the federal government is experiencing financial constraint while still being mindful of expenditures and federal agency budgets, tribal nations should understand that just as the president presents his budget, so will Congress.

This has always been par for the course, she said. Congress will appropriate differently.

Miller said she expects to see an Indian Health Care Improvement Act introduced along with a Self-Governance bill that aims to allow tribes to self-govern all Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) programs.

Staff Director and Chief Counsel for the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, Mike Andrews talked about proposing a Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) Supplemental Housing Bill.

We need to make this bill longstanding and I think we can work together on this as a strong bipartisan bill, Andrews said. If there are any issues with this bill, we need to rec...

Media & the World We're Living In {Must Read!} "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Questions within the Media are never answered. She stings

with the reassurance that all is not right, and so she uses gossip, hopeless
misdemeanors and stories of rank understanding unworthy of judgement. In this
way, this royal wench, forces you to be hopelessly rooted to the past, and have
no inkling of what to do for the future. Sitting stalemate with her traitorous
compatriots or confused enemies, political and social adjustments become ever
so slight, and so any responses are unlikely to bring about positive social
changes.

The media is
always the fork in the road. Either you go left or you go right, but, in the
end, there is only a limited number of ways to go to solve humanitys issues;
One: Mind your own business. Two: before you claim judgement on another, take a
good hard look at who you are yourself. Third: If there are major conflicts to
solve, control and maintain, believe in the moment and, if you are able,
capable and willing, be active and do what you can.

The media is the
hugest failure of any kind due to her greedy need to corner and capture the
souls of her sponsors, the global public and, in terms of knowledge and true
wisdom, her own people who, to make a dollar and protect the harlots own
personal security, will lie to the heavens until her body become sickly, turns
to grey and disappears from any form of humane humility.

Vanity is the
main weapon of the media. Name brands are the ammunition. Your attention is the
victim. Your innocent wish to criticize others to comfort your uncertainty is
also wishy-washy and you end up just spending too much time or more money, (hard
earned money), that should make you happy. Instead, however you continue living
into the future carrying on believing consumerism, excessive polluting from way

War Is a Racket: The US Spreads Terror, Then Fights It "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Editors Note: While we disagree with Porters conclusion (specifically, that the US sacrificed the priority of countering al-Qaeda to maintain the alliances; we dont believe fighting al-Qaeda has ever been a priority for Washington, quite the opposite, actually) this is an important piece because it shows the growing disillusion and disbelief with US foreign policy in the Middle East


New York Times columnist Tom Friedman outraged many readers when he wrote an opinion piece on 12 April calling on President Trump to back off fighting territorial ISIS in Syria. The reason he gave for that recommendation was not that US wars in the Middle East are inevitably self-defeating and endless, but that it would reduce the pressure on Assad, Iran, Russia and Hezbollah.

That suggestion that the US sell out its interest in counter-terrorism in the Middle East to gain some advantage in power competition with its adversaries was rightly attacked as cynical.

But, in fact, the national security bureaucracies of the US which many have come to call the Deep State have been selling out their interests in counter-terrorism in order to pursue various adventures in the region ever since George W Bush declared a Global War on Terrorism in late 2001.

The whole war on terrorism has been, in effect, a bait-and-switch operation from the beginning. The idea that US military operations were somehow going to make America safer after the 9/11 attacks was the bait. What has actually happened ever since then, however, is that senior officials at the Pentagon and the CIA have been sacrificing the interest of American people in weakening al-Qaeda in order to pursue their own institutional interests.

The only game in town

It all began, of course, with the invasion of Iraq. Counter-terrorism specialists in the US government knew perfectly well that US regime change in Iraq through military force would give a powerful boost to Osama bin Ladens organisation and to anti-American terrorism generally.

While its true that sometimes physical beauty plays a role in mens desirability of women, more often than not it is that something more that these women possess. It is the It Factor that goes far beyond skin-deep beauty and is irresistible to those around them.

So what do these highly desirable women have in common? Here are 9 traits that the most desirable women possess, and the results may surprise you!

1. They believe in the power of laughter

There are few things more attractive in a person than a light-hearted spirit and an easy laugh. Highly desirable women dont take life too seriously. Instead of being easily offended or mired down in drama, they seek out the positives in tough situations.

2. They arent looking for the attention they receive

While they may seem to have a spotlight following them, they certainly didnt ask for it! This type of woman exudes an energy that draws people to her, but you will never find her wasting her time fishing for compliments or begging to be noticed.

3. They are in charge of their own lives

The most desirable women know that they dont need anyone but themselves to decide their path in life. Once they decide what they want, they go for it. On the flip side, these women are capable of owning up to their mistakes and are willing to adapt in order to grow.

4. They have both emotional and intellectual intelligence

There is a lot more to intelligence than just book smarts, and a highly desirable woman has a well-rounded approach to life. Not only can she knock your socks off with her wealth of knowledge, she is in touch with her emotions and capable of controlling them.

5. They are exceptional at communicating

The ability to have a deep, intelligent conversation goes a long way in upping a womans desirability, but it goes further than that. The women that are most desirable are not only skilled at spirited conversation, they are also able to listen and resolve conflicts that arise.

6. They have found their passion and embrace it!

Passion is incredibly desirable, and this type of w...

CRONULLA UNVEIL NEW MONUMENT IN HONOUR OF PAUL GALLEN "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

THERE ARE ALREADY CALLS TO HOLD A DIVING CEREMONY AT THE BASE OF THE MONUMENT ANNUALLY FROM NOW ON.

THERE ARE ALREADY CALLS TO HOLD A DIVING CEREMONY AT THE BASE OF THE MONUMENT ANNUALLY FROM NOW ON.

The Cronulla Sharks have repaid their skippers masterful diving skills by declaring today Shire Diving Day, with thousands of fans throwing themselves to the ground fraudulently to mark the occasion.

Cronulla Mayor Tony Archer cut the ribbon to the Gal Takes the Piss Monument earlier this morning, before stabbing himself with the same pair of scissors and blaming an unsuspecting passerby for the deed.

Shire Diving Day will be all about families enjoying the fun and colourful theatre that is NRL cheating, Mr Archer said whilst losing a fair bit of blood.

I implore every Cronulla resident to get in the spirit of Shire Diving Day by deliberately getting involved in a work-related accident and then blaming the incident on a boss or co-worker.

And it appears the Shire has well and truly responded to the challenge, with thousands of residents flocking to council skateparks and hurling themselves of high ramps with the intention of claiming financial compensation.

I threw myself in front a shopping trolley and bruised my knee up pretty bad, my lawyer says I could get millions thanks heaps Gal, one local man told us.

The only man who has found the day to be a bit of a fizzer was Stephen Dank, who earlier harpooned himself with several hormone-filled syringes before going into cardiac arrest.

INDOCTRINATION: How the Gay Frog Lobby Uses LEAPFROG to Trick Our Kids "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

We all know that the water is turning the frogs gay. Thats science. All that info has come out. They brag about it. But now were learning how deep this goes.

Folks, independent research has lead us to believe and no one else is reporting this that the gay frogs (who were made that way by water) are working to not only turn other frogs gay, but now our children.

The way they do it? Leapfrog.

When I was a kid, leapfrog was a healthy american game for children. I remember playing it with friends, like Brian. Now, its been perverted by the liberal-endorsed gay frog lobby.

In my youth, young Brian and I would spend hours on the playground, leaping over each other, his beautiful blonde hair blowing in the wind. Now, the game is for Backlickers, closet Toad Boys, and the disgusting, slimy, green-skinned gay frog banditos.

RELATED ARTICLES:

I miss when America was my America. And leap frog was my leap frog. And Brian was my Brian.

Gay Frog money has been slowly seeping into each and every local school board election for years, just like the radioactive waves coming off of the cell phone you are reading this blog on right now. Now, that cancerous tumor of gay frog slime has metastasized, turning leapfrog into a gateway drug to full on, bareback thrusting.

Thats why Ive pulled my son out of school and locked him in his room, where I know he is safe forever.

Evidence that the Continent of Lemuria Actually Existed "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Various legends and other unusual landforms remind of the submerged continent of Lemuria that stretched all the way from India to Australia.

Like Atlantis, this ancient landmass disappeared in mysterious circumstances tens of thousands of years ago.

Towards the end of the 19th century, English geologist Philip Sclater had coined the idea of a submerged continent named Lemuria.

Although such a belief was not so novel, the researcher provided evidence that would even be approved by the scientific community at that time.

REPORT: Gay Frogs Not Gay, Just Drunk and Experimenting "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

After PRIVATELY FUNDED research, it has been discovered that frogs have not become gay due to chemtrail pollution; the frogs have just gotten drunk and experimenting. This has been confirmed by hundreds of hours of study at the frog pond behind my aunts place.

I concluded that the frogs were smashed by observing their behavior. Instead of leaping high in the air over each other as leapfrog teaches us they do, the frogs were just stumbling about, sitting and staring forever, or making little WUSSY hops. Also they stuck their tongues out a lot, which anyone whos been to a house party will tell you is something drunks are always doing.

In hindsight it should have been obvious. Those Budweiser frogs from the Super Bowl commercials (49ERS FUCK YEAH!) were clearly a sign that the frogs were connected to the secretly gay brewing industry. This is the sort of thing you learn about our gay corporate paymasters when you see them warts and all!

That or they know they can high by licking each other and then accidentally get gay in the process.

Also it makes sense because frogs, mice, rabbits, and all other small animals like that were put on this Earth to be used for science experiments. So experimenting is in their DNA! Only the bleeding heart LIBTARDS dont know that!

Kyle Bass Warns All Hell Is About To Break Loose In China "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Editors Note: Did you know the Great Depression wasnt triggered by a U.S. stock market crash? Most of that history has been lost to mainstream talking points over the last 80 years, but in reality, as Martin Armstrong has noted, the catalyst was a collapse in Europe. This information is important as you read the following report from ZeroHedge.com below, because at this very moment China is entering a massive credit crisis and according to Kyle Bass, the man who not only predicted the crash of 2008 but profited handsomely from it, says that all hell is about to break loose. With China being one of the largest economies in the world, there is a real possibility that the contagion may soon spread to Western markets, which may explain why corporate insiders are unloading their stocks like theres no tomorrow.

Chinas credit system expanded too recklessly and too quickly, and its beginning to unravel, warns Hayman Capitals Kyle Bass.

Crucially, Bass notes that ballooning assets in Chinese wealth management products are another sign of a looming credit crisis in the nation.

Some of the longer-term assets arent doing very well, Bass said on Bloomberg TV from the annual Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills, California. As soon as liabilities have problems meaning the depositors decide to not roll their holdings all hell breaks loose.

The wealth management products, or WMPs, have swelled to $4 trillion in assets in the last few years, he said., on a $34 trillion banking system

Does or Doesnt by Lonac in Nanxian, China "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

International graffiti artist network Wallskar, recently hosted a graffiti and food festival Another Side in Nanxian county in the province of Hunan, China. Aiming to bridge the Chinese graffiti with the global graffiti art scene the organizers invited a nice selection of international writers, including Croatian artist Lonac.
During his first visit to Asia Zagreb-based artist painted a new figurative based hyper realistic piece titled Does or Doesnt, depicting a woman playing He loves me, he loves me not.. with a yellow flower. Putting his focus on her facial expression, as well as her hands, the artist created a tensed or surprised feel with his work, which is further accented with a large bat hoovering on the top portion of the piece. Limiting himself with colors and leaving a solid green background, Lonac created a vibrant image that is popping from the surface while reminiscing of classic artwork with its softness, light effect and composition.
Check out more images of Lonacs latest creation after the jump and stay tuned for more graffiti and street art news from around the globe.

Star People and Flying Shields Are Familiar Notions Inside Native American Tribes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Cultures with a deep understanding of the metaphysical planes of existence still recall a remote period in time when humans freely interacted with people from the stars, and it all happened on this planet we call our home.

Prior to the merciless conquest of the Americas by the rapacious Europeans, there were various cultures in these areas not sharing the beliefs of the colonialists, but instead possessing unique belief systems, as well as precious ancient knowledge.

Much of this information had been eradicated by the colonialists of that era, but several ideologies were fortunate enough to surpass the test of time and are now offering bewildering insight, since these ancient concepts are contradictory to the established Western paradigm.

Surviving tribes speak of the Star People, a term referring to various beings of otherworldly origins who at some point in time descended from the sky in order to share some of their wisdom with the early inhabitants of the Earth worthy of their gifts of knowledge.

Best Places to Live: Scenic Byways "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Nebraska Highway 20 scenic byway

Nebraska Highway 20 scenic byway


As a young man, I traveled across Nebraska on Highway 20 that parallels the main east-west interstate across the state. Its very beautiful country. The scenic byway was far more interesting than the interstate which I had traveled many times going back and forth to Colorado on vacation. Places like this would be a great place to homestead.

You dont have to live in the middle of nowhere. Consider taking a trip along some scenic byways and check out small towns along the way. See this previous story about small town urban homesteading for instance.

Building codes are often quite lenient in small rural towns, especially if youre outside city limits. One option is to get an old farmhouse so you have a place to move into right away. Build your dream home later once youve settled in. Be sure to choose a spot with decent soil and a good well so you can grow your own food. Or better yet buy an old homestead with an established garden. Also, be sure everything youll need is within reasonable driving distance building supply center, supermarket, farmers market, farm supply, etc.

Search sites such as Americas Scenic Byways.
Thanks to the Internet you can now check out almost every aspect of an area before going. This will speed your search and save tons of money. Like they say, Let your fingers do the walking.

I just did a little search and found out that Nebraska Highway 20 is the longest highway in the US. U.S. Route 20 covers 3,365 miles from Boston, Massachusetts, to Newport, Oregon. The article says The road allows you to come face-to-face with some of the most famous cities, charming towns, and scenic landscapes in the country.

Look! Get Ready for Biometric Visas, Part of the Trump Administration Plan "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


Hidden In the open is some of the things Bannon and the Trump Admin want to accomplish. As you can see, Finally Complete Biometric Visa is on the wall. This goes right along with the 2030 Agenda details i was discussing years ago.
In an effort to bring every last person into the system, so to speak, governments, globalist forces, and the United Nations want to make sure that every human being on the planet has a government-issued identification card, complete with biometric data. Indeed, the recently approved UN Sustainable Development Goals, also known as Agenda 2030, explicitly calls for providing legal identity and birth registration for all.
The UNs deeply controversial Agenda 2030, marketed as an effort at transforming our world, is essentially a recipe for global socialism, as this magazine has documented. Everything from national and international wealth redistribution to targeting children as agents of change is explicitly demanded in the scheme, formally adopted by every national government and dictatorship on Earth in September. Buried deep within the massive text, which outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 specific targets, is another key piece of the globalist puzzle. By 2030, provide legal identity for all, including birth registration, reads target 16.9. In other words, the UN and its member regimes are practically putting a bulls-eye on the back of every human being who still exists outside of the globalized economic and political system, such as the hundreds of millions of people who do not have government IDs, bank accounts, government benefits, permits to exist/build/farm/hunt/procreate/emit CO2, and more.
Goal 16 of Agenda 2030, which includes about a dozen individual targets, also offers some other important hints as to the real agenda behind the UNs latest 15-year plan for mankind. The goal itself is listed as: Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive instituions at all levels. That might sound nice to the untrained observer UN documents almost always use innocent-sounding language developed by PR experts and marketing gurus to conceal the real agenda. However, within Goal 16 not to mention the equally dangerous 16 other goals for humanity are contained multiple troubling provisions.

Among them: Promote the rule of law at the national and international levels. Who exactly would be making this law...

Anyway, it was right next to another item Id been hanging on to, which I had got messages again and again and again and again and again and again and again that I HAD to release.

After stepping on the tack, immediately I got that it was a POINTED message to Get that thing OUTTA here NOW!!!

So after washing and cleaning my foot (and dressing it with MMS), I drove into town and eventually was guided to the place to which I was to donate that item (thing). Now it has the opportunity to find its new owner.

Done. Finished. Pau (Hawaiian for finished)....

What do Le Corbusier and the 2005 porno Slut Puppies have in common?

One very curvaceous chair, the LC4 Chaise Lounge, a design icon of the 20th century apparently so comfortable and sleek it has cameos in hundreds of very, very NSFW adult flicks.

Designed in 1928 and now attributed to Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand, the LC4 champions relaxation, with a frame capable of reclining at any angle. This, perhaps, is what may make it a popular prop for sex, along with the fact that you can customize an order in buttery full-grain leather, seductive pony or cow skin, or luscious beige canvas upholstery.

Pink Floyd Plays in Venice on a Massive Floating Stage in 1989; Forces the Mayor & City Council to Resign "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

When Roger Waters left Pink Floyd after 1983s The Final Cut, the remaining members had good reason to assume the band was truly, as Waters proclaimed, a spent force. After releasing solo projects in the next few years, David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Richard Wright soon discovered they would never achieve as individuals what they did as a band, both musically and commercially. Gilmour got to work in 1986 on developing new solo material into the 13th Pink Floyd studio album, the first without Waters, A Momentary Lapse of Reason.

Whether the record is misunderstood, or just bad is a matter for fans and critics to hash out. At the time, as Ultimate Classic Rock writes, it would make or break their future ability to tour and record without Waters. Richard Wright, who could only contribute unofficially for legal reasons, later admitted that its not a band album at all, and mostly served as a showcase for Gilmours songs, supported in recording by several session players.

Still A Momentary Lapse of Reason surpassed quadruple platinum status in the U.S., driven by the single Learning to Fly. The Russian crew of the Soyuz TM-7 took the disc with them on their 1988 expedition, making Pink Floyd the first rock band to be played in outer space, and the album spawned the years biggest tour and a companion live album.

Uncertain whether the album would sell, the band only planned a small series of shows initially in 1987, but arena after arena filled up, and the tour...

For decades, artists have used the format of the artist book to explore concepts parallel to their primary artistic practice. For some, these take the form of one-of-a-kind, handcrafted objects, while other artists create low-cost publications meant to be widely distributed. On view through Sunday at the Craft & Folk Art Museum, Chapters: Book Arts in Southern California is the first large-scale museum exhibition to focus on artist books in the region, featuring over 100 examples produced between the 1960s and the present.

Momordica charantia extract increases anti-fatigue activities and enhances exercise performance in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Vet Med Sci. 2017 May 1. Epub 2017 May 1. PMID: 28458274 Abstract Title:  Supplementation with Hualian No. 4 wild bitter gourd (Momordica charantia Linn. var. abbreviata ser.) extract increases anti-fatigue activities and enhances exercise performance in mice. Abstract:  Hualian No. 4 wild bitter gourd (WBG) is a specific vegetable cultivated by the Hualien District Agricultural Research and Extension Station in Taiwan. WBG is commonly consumed as a vegetable and used as a popular folk medicine. However, few studies have demonstrated the effects of WBG supplementation on exercise performance, physical fatigue and the biochemical profile. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the potential beneficial effects of WBG extract on fatigue and ergogenic functions following physiological challenge. Three groups of male ICR mice (n=8 per group) were orally administered 0, 1 or 2.5 g/kg/day of WBG for 4 weeks. They were respectively designated the vehicle, WBG-1X and WBG-2.5X groups. WBG significantly decreased body weight (BW) and epididymal fat pad (EFP) weight. Concerning physical performance, WBG supplementation dose-dependently increased grip strength and endurance swimming time. Concerning anti-fatigue activity, WBG decreased levels of serum lactate, ammonia, creatine kinase and blood urea nitrogen, and economized glucose metabolism after acute exercise challenge. Glycogen in the liver and gastrocnemius muscle dose-dependently increased with WBG treatment. Concerning the biochemical profile, WBG treatment significantly decreased alanine aminotransferase (ALT), blood urea nitrogen (BUN), urea acid (UA), and increased total protein (TP). Therefore, 4-week supplementation with WBG may decrease white adipose weight, enhance energy economy, increase glycogen storage to enhance exercise performance and reduce fatigue.

The shortlist of nominees has been released for the 2017 Turner Prize, the prestigious awards first edition since a preexisting ban on artists over 50 was lifted. The four nominees are the Germany-born conceptual artist Andrea Bttner, the British moving image artist Rosalind Nashashibi, the British painter Hurvin Anderson, and the Tanzania-born painter and sculptor Lubaina Himid. The latter two, aged 52 and 62, respectively, would not have been eligible last year.

Three of the nominees are women, two are people of color, and two (Anderson and Himid) are known primarily for painting a medium historically disadvantaged in the Turner Prize competition.

The landscape blockbusters of Frederic Edwin Church "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

51KQR790DFL._SX385_On the 4th of May 1826, American landscapist Frederic Edwin Church was born in Hartford, Connecticut. He was a central figure in the Hudson River School of American landscape painters, combining natural sciences with a spiritual dimension in his works. Early on, Church dropped his teacher Thomas Coles predilection for allegory, in favour of a more accurate exploration of the sublime grandiosity of the natural landscape. He continued the tradition of American pastoral settings, captured in minute detail and imbued with romantic qualities, a style meant to capture the wild realism of an unsettled America before its disappearance and the awe felt by the viewer/explorer upon finding it. The whole idea was though to glimpse at these majestic vistas undisturbed by human presence; in these open and empty scenes, the horizon lay low and the sky dominated the picture. The brushstrokes were eliminated by careful overworking offering these landscapes a photographic quality.

Church travelled a lot. He took two important trips to South America (1853, 1857) staying predominantly in Quito, Ecuador, possibly spurred on by the...

Bumble bee may have taken its own life, says report "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Dorset police believe a bumble bee that flew straight in to the path of an oncoming car may have taken its own life.  An inquiry into what was initially believed to be a routine, if tragic, accident on the A30 was turned into a suspicious death investigation.

The subsequent Coroners report concluded that there had been good visibility at the time of the incident, flying conditions were good, the pollen count, while high, was optimal for the bee and it is believed the route was well known to it.

Dorset police believe now that the bee must have deliberately taken its own life. Its our responsibility to investigate all sudden and suspicious road deaths, said DCI Simon Rendell today, adding, and we are appealing to any witnesses to the incident.  The bee was dressed in hi-visibility outer wear and was carrying a bag of substance we now think might have been nectar.

Just before the incident the local Samaritans received a call, but were unable to help. I just got an insistent buzzing on the line, so I reported it to BT. Only in hindsight have I realised this might have been a cry for help, said Samaritan call-centre agent Scott Morgan.

The bee collided with a Renault Scenic hatchback, causing minor damage to the drivers side windscreen which was rectified by paramedics with a scraper and a wet wipe at the scene.  Luckily the driver, who was tested negative for drugs, pollen and alcohol at the scene,  was wearing a seatbelt.

The airbags didnt deploy, however, noted DCI Rendell.  He added that even after 20 years of attending bee collisions it doesnt get any easier. Its informing the whole hive that brings it home, he said, adding, I have to go now, Ive just been advised of a major pile up involving thirty dragonflies and a transit van, multiple fatalities, he said, rushing to his car.  Luckily the van drivers OK, just out of screenwash, he said.

Gingko Biloba Protects Against Cognitive Effects of Heavy Metals "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Gingko Biloba Prevent Disease

By Joe Battaglia

Ginkgo biloba, one of the oldest living tree species and best-selling herbs, also protects the brain from the toxic effects of aluminium chloride exposure, which has been linked to diseases such as Alzheimers and other cognitive impairments.

Solid research has been performed on extracts of ginkgo biloba, which contain antioxidant compounds that protect cells from free radical damage within the nervous and circulatory systems. The protective effects of Ginkgo biloba was clearly observed, said researchers.

Ancient Chinese medical manuscripts indicate that at least 5000 years ago, extracts of the leaves of the ginkgo tree were being used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including asthma, Raynauds syndrome (a circulatory disorder affecting the hands and feet), and age-related memory loss.

North Korean Missile Upset At Missing Out On Parade "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A nuclear missile is disappointed about missing a parade down the main street of Pyongyang after being rostered onto active duty over the weekend.

All the other missiles get to march and listen to the bands and watch the thousands of girls with flags walking in formation while I have to sit here in a freezing cold silo shivering my booster rockets off just in case some doofus wants to start a war while the parade is on, complained North Korean ICBM Kane Oyate from his bunker in the hills. I bet all of my mates got an approving nod from Kim Jong Un as they were driven past his little wooden trestle table on the back of a Bedford lorry.

Wed love to allow all our missiles to go to the parade but unfortunately someone has to stay at home guarding the fort and it was Kanes turn this time, said General Mirv Fizzer from the DPRK air force. Weve set up a portable TV in his bunker so he can watch the parade and see all his chums being feted by cheering crowds of brainwashed civilians.

Participation in the parade is the highlight of the year for most North Korean missiles, surpassed only by the chance to be chosen as the demonstration missile in a missile test.

Sure Im pissed off about missing the parade but as compensation Ill get to be the next missile launched to show the world our fearsome military capability. Then Ill be living the dream of every North Korean missile, of being fired fifty meters into the Sea...

Federal Resources Minister, Senator Matt Canavan, is misrepresenting Wangan and Jagalingou people again "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

 

Federal Resources Minister, Senator Matt Canavan, is misrepresenting Wangan and Jagalingou people again, as he and his National Party leader and Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce, come down hard on Westpac. The big four bank announced a new policy which cuts Adani out of any future lending.

It would be laughable if it wasnt so serious, the National Party talking climate action and Aboriginal rights, and giving economic advice to a commercial bank. Here is the great pork barreling, coal burning and anti-land rights party of Australian history arguing for Aboriginal advancement, and lecturing banks on climate policy and how to do business.

All part of doing Adanis bidding of course Chairman Gautam Adani, made an unannounced visit to Queensland this weekend to reassure politicians the decision would have no impact on plans for the multibillion-dollar mine. He met with Canavan.

Quid pro quo, no doubt, for the Federal Government bending over backwards to change the Native Title Act to suit Adanis interests.

Canavan of course, like Mundine the week before, trotted out the convenient fiction as cover for trashing Aboriginal rights. Canavan claims Westpac have also turned their back on the indigenous peoples of Queensland by this decision, because this mine in the Galilee Basin is supported by the Wangan and Jagalingou peoples. They met last year and voted on the mine, they voted on the mine 294 to one in support of it, yet thats not good enough for Westpac, he claimed in The Australian.

Westpac didnt make a decision based on Aboriginal rights one way or the other. W&J was the last thing on its business mind, sadly.

But one more time for the record

Adani didnt negotiate and achieve the free prior informed consent of the...

Man On Motorcycle Stops Traffic To Rescue A Tiny Kitten "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

He could have just kept on going but instead he stopped to help.

And this kitten is alive today because of it.

Credit: Facebook/Kwok Kin Wai Kevin

Last week, Kwok Kin Wai was riding his motorcycle along a busy highway in Hong Kong when he spotted the tiny cat stranded alone in the middle of a lane. All around her were the crushing tires of countless passing cars, so she stood little chance of escaping the situation on her own.

Gripped by the fact that the kitten would likely soon be hit, Wai pulled over and put his own life at risk to save her.

Wais act of heroism was a selfless one, but it didnt go unnoticed. A motorists dashboard camera happened to catch it all on video a video which has since gone viral in China.As word of Wais actions spread, however, he was working to help the kitten in yet another way.

On Facebook, he posted photos of the cat in an effort to find her a safe and loving home.

And it worked.As Chinese news site Shanghaiist reports, within an hour of publishing that post, someone stepped forward to adopt the kitten.
And with that, Wai effectively saved her life again.

The Connection Between Insulin Resistance and the High-Carb, Low-Fat Diet "IndyWatch Feed Health"

by Dr. Mercola

Dr. Tim Noakes, a well-respected scientist, researcher, physician and professor at the Division of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, is one of the worlds foremost experts on low-carb diets. In fact, he was instrumental in getting the low-carb diet revolution off the ground.

Hes also an accomplished athlete. As a long-distance endurance runner with 70 marathons under his belt, he had long promoted high-carb diets, himself consuming 400 grams of carbs a day or more when preparing for a race.

Eventually, he discovered this wasnt the best way to improve athletic endurance and health, and ended up writing a number of popular books on low-carb diets.

From High to Low Carb

Noakes graduated from medical school in 1974. At the time, he was also running, and this was when the high carbohydrate diet really started to become popularized.

Following the advice of one of his professors at the cardiology unit where he worked, he changed to a high-carb diet and began promoting it in his writings, including the book, Lore of Running, which was widely read.

There it says that you must eat lots of carbohydrates for both health and performance. I continued to do this for 33 years until 2010, Noakes says.

One day in 2010, he went for a run and had one of the worst runs of his life. He also admitted he was overweight, which didnt help. By chance, that same day he received an advertisement for Dr. Eric C. Westmans book, The New Atkins for a New You: The Ultimate Diet for Shedding Weight and Feeling Great.

It claimed you could lose 6 kilos (13 pounds) in six weeks, which he didnt believe because hed tried many diets and none worked. Despite that, he bought the book, and within two hours of reading, he realized hed had it all wrong all this time.

I decided then and there that I was going to go low-carb. I started at lunchtime on that day. Ive been on that diet now for the last six years. Ive dropped 20 kilograms (44 pounds) in weight. My running returned to what it had been 20 years earlier, he says.

I subsequently discovered that I have type 2 diabetes beca...

Health Impact News

LCHF stands for a low carbohydrate and high fat diet. Not only does this diet protocol threaten the official nutritional dietary dogma of high carbohydrates and low fats (including NO saturated fats, as per USDA nutritional guidelines), promoting LCHF also threatens the sugar and processed food industries where it hurts, financially.

So as with all things proven unscientific that support current industrial endeavors, promoting accurate current science to upset all endeavors associated with misinformation warrants attacks on the messengers while suppressing their scientific evidence.

The science behind LCHF has been known at least since the 1920s when the ketogenic diet was developed at Johns Hopkins Hospital as a cure for childhood epilepsy, being used when drugs failed.

Handmade Pillows Embroidered with Silhouettes of People Sleeping "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Maryam Ashkanian textile artist

Iranian fiber artist Maryam Ashkanian is wowing us with her creative series of embroidered sculptures. Her ongoing series Sleep sees her embroidering sleeping people onto the surface of handmade pillows. The effect is both surreal and magical, as she captures the surprisingly large range of ways in which people rest their heads.

From calm and serene to fitful and restless, each piece portrays the emotions of people at rest. The series is a way to look at dreams in order to enter into a broader universe. Images of us in dreams are revealed in the right truest evidence; an original icon which introduces us to the peripheral world wildly, shares the artist.

With an academic background in painting, Ashkanian brings a painterly touch to the work. With the embroidery thread acting as brushstrokes, there is a frenetic energy to each piece. Her works begin with preparatory sketches, which act as a base for her to layer upon. By using textiles, she's able to give the art a dynamic, sculptural form she was not able to achieve through the oil painting she worked with initially.

This contemporary fiber artist uses embroidery thread to depict people sleeping on homemade pillows.

Piperine may be a promising prooxidant drug for the amelioration of hepatocellular carcinoma. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Mar 21 ;105:106-118. Epub 2017 Mar 21. PMID: 28341137 Abstract Title:  Targeting hepatocellular carcinoma with piperine by radical-mediated mitochondrial pathway of apoptosis: An in vitro and in vivo study. Abstract:  Redox mediated cancer therapeutics are of immense interest in the recent decade due to their anticancer activity. Piperine is the principal alkaloid of black and long pepper. Although its anticancer activity has been reported in number of cancers , the precise molecular mechanism of action remains to be unravelled. Hence, in this study, for the first time, we delineated the mechanistic insight into the effect of piperine against hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC).MTT analysis determined the dose and time dependent cytotoxicity of piperine against Hep G2 cells. Further molecular studies evidenced the prooxidant property of piperine by inducing H2O2 driven mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in Hep G2 cells by inhibiting the peroxide detoxifying enzyme Catalase. Molecular docking and western blotting analysis uncovered the piperine mediated receptor tyrosine kinase inhibition and mitigation of HCC progression. In addition, histological investigations of piperine - treated, DEN-induced HCC rats showed significant prognosis with apoptotic cell death. Whereas,co-treatment of an antioxidant EUK-134 significantly abrogated its chemotherapeutic activity substantiating its radical-mediated anticancer property. Altogether, this study shows that the piperine may be a promising prooxidant drug for the amelioration of hepatocellular carcinoma.

PMID: 28344463 Abstract Title:  Curcumin and Piperine Supplementation and Recovery Following Exercise Induced Muscle Damage: A Randomized Controlled Trial. Abstract:  The aim of this study was to analyze the effects of oral consumption of curcumin and piperine in combination on the recovery kinetics after exercise-induced muscle damage. Forty-eight hours before and following exercise-induced muscle damage, ten elite rugby players consumed curcumin and piperine (experimental condition) or placebo. A randomized cross-over design was performed. Concentric and isometric peak torque for the knee extensors, one leg 6 seconds sprint performance on a non-motorized treadmill, counter movement jump performance, blood creatine kinase concentration and muscle soreness were assessed immediately after exercise, then at 24h, 48h and 72h post-exercise. There were moderate to large effects of the exercise on the concentric peak torque for the knee extensors (Effect size (ES) = -1.12; Confidence interval at 90% (CI90%): -2.17 to -0.06), the one leg 6 seconds sprint performance (ES=-1.65; CI90% = -2.51to -0.80) and the counter movement jump performance (ES = -0.56; CI90% = -0.81 to -0.32) in the 48h following the exercise. There was also a large effect of the exercise on the creatine kinase level 72h after the exercise in the control group (ES = 3.61; CI90%: 0.24 to 6.98). This decrease in muscle function and this elevation in creatine kinase indicate that the exercise implemented was efficient to induce muscle damage. Twenty four hours post-exercise, the reduction (from baseline) in sprint mean power output was moderately lower in the experimental condition (-1.77 7.25%; 1277 153W) in comparison with the placebo condition (-13.6 13.0%; 1130 241W) (Effect Size = -1.12; Confidence Interval 90%=-1.86 to -0.86). However, no other effect was found between the two conditions. Curcumin and piperine supplementation before and after exercise can attenuatesome, but not all, aspects of muscle damage.

4.5 Million Blue Flowers Bloom Across Japanese Park Like a Field of Fairies "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Nemophila Blooms Hitachi Seaside Park Blue Flowers

Photo credit: Japan Guide

Back in February, we were mesmerized by the early arrival of Japan's famed cherry blossoms. Now, nearly 3 months later, the pretty pink flowers have come and gone in most regions. Fortunately for us, however, the previously pink Hitachi Seaside Park in Ibaraki Prefecture is now blanketed in blue thanks to a recent bloom of nemophila flowers.

Aptly nicknamed baby blue eyes, the tiny flowering plants blossom toward the end of spring. Though they're found throughout Japan (and even in California), the flowers are particularly famous for their arrival in Hitachi Seaside Park. Every year, over 4 million nemophila cover the park's Miharashi Hill, culminating in a dazzling display of rollingand seemingly infinitecolor. As the highest point on the grounds, Miharashi Hill also offers sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, which, in addition to nemophila, is teeming with Technicolor tulips and yellow rapeseed blossoms this time of year.

Given the pastoral beauty of the region, catching a glimpse of the picture-perfect phenomenon may seem out of reach. However, the stunning gardens are only a short train and bus ride away from Tokyo's bustling center. So, if you're in the area this spring, be sure to scope out the park's brilliant blue scenery. Can you imagine a more delightful day trip?

This study highlights the potential application of shikonin in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  J Nat Med. 2017 Apr ;71(2):349-356. Epub 2016 Dec 9. PMID: 27943122 Abstract Title:  Shikonin inhibits TNF- production through suppressing PKC-NF-B-dependent decrease of IL-10 in rheumatoid arthritis-like cell model. Abstract:  Shikonin, a major effective component in the Chinese herbal medicine Lithospermum erythrorhizon Sieb., exhibits an anti-inflammatory property towards rheumatoid arthritis (RA), but the potential mechanism is unclear. Our aim was to investigate the mechanism of shikonin on the lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced fibroblast-like synoviocyte (LiFLS) inflammation model. Fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLSs) were treated with 200 g/ml of LPS for 24 h to establish the RA-like model, LiFLS. FLSs were pretreated with shikonin (0.1-1 M) for 30 min in the treatment groups. Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays were used to detect mRNA and protein levels of interleukin (IL)-10 and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-. Signal proteins involved in IL-10 production were analyzed by Western blotting. Shikonin significantly reversed the inhibitory effects of LPS on IL-10 expression in FLSs by inactivating the PKC-NF-B pathway. In addition, shikonin inhibited LPS-induced TNF-expression in FLSs, and this effect was markedly diminished by IL-10-neutralizing antibody. The IL-10-mediated suppression of TNF- transcription was demonstrated by no response to the protein synthesis inhibitor cyclohexamide and no mRNA decay. Shikonin inhibits LPS-induced TNF- production in FLSs through suppressing the PKC-NF-B-dependent decrease in IL-10, and this study also highlights the potential application of shikonin in the treatment of RA.

U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs Chairman Secures $15 Million for Militarized Police at Standing Rock "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Water protectors sprayed with water cannon in frigid weather near barricade. Hoeven wants $15 million for North Dakota to pay for this type of action.

Published May 3, 2017

WASHINGTON Senator John Hoeven, the chairman of the U.S. Committee on Indian Affairs, announced North Dakota will receive up to $15 million in federal funding to help reimburse the state for costs incurred as a result of the Dakota Access Pipeline protests. Hoeven represents North Dakota in the United States Senate.

Hoeven worked to include grant funding inthe Department of Justices budget as part of the Fiscal 2017 funding legislation.

The police at Standing Rock came from many states and were heavily militarized, using rubber bullets on water protectors and water cannons in frigid cold temperatures.

The state must submit an application to the Department of Justice (DOJ), which will provide $15 million for emergency law enforcement events occurring during Fiscal Years 2016 and 2017. The program will be administered by theDOJs Office of Justice Programs State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance. The grant is part of a larger government funding bill, which must be approved by Congress.

In addition to being the chairman of the Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, Hoeven sits in the influential Senate Appropriations Committee.

Sen. John Hoeven is a Republican senator who represents North Dakota.

As a member of the Appropriations Committee, Ive worked to secure funding in the Department of Justice budget that states and localities can apply for to defer costs for emergency law enforcement situations,including the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, said Hoeven. This should enable North Dakota to get up to$15 million from the Fiscal Year 2017 budget to help defer the costs associated with that law enf...

Shikonin inhibited the viability, migration and invasion of SW480 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Eur J Pharmacol. 2017 Feb 15 ;797:1-8. Epub 2017 Jan 12. PMID: 28088387 Abstract Title:  SIRT2 mediated antitumor effects of shikonin on metastatic colorectal cancer. Abstract:  SIRT2 is involved in the development of a variety of cancers. Shikonin is a natural compound that is known to have antitumor effects. This study aims to assess the effects of shikonin on the development and metastatic progression of colorectal cancer (CRC) through regulation of SIRT2 expression and whether this effect is related to the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinases (ERKs). The results demonstrated that SIRT2 is downregulated in CRC biopsy samples (n=31) compared with the adjacent non-cancerous tissues (ANCT, n=26). Furthermore, CRC metastases were positive for SIRT2 despite a lack of expression in the primary tumor. In addition, data from an in vitro assay revealed that overexpression of SIRT2 inhibited the proliferation and metastatic progression of SW480 cells while blocking of SIRT2 expression induced the proliferation and metastatic progression of HT29 cells. Shikonin inhibited the viability, migration and invasion of SW480 cells and it also inhibited the tumor growth in the nude mice model; while AGK2 (a specific inhibitor of SIRT2) reversed these effects. Epidermal growth factor (EGF, an activator of ERK) and ERK-overexpression inhibited the effects of shikonin on SIRT2 expression, proliferation and metastasis in SW480 cells. However, this proliferative effect of EGF was reversed by SIRT2 overexpression. In conclusion, these results suggest that SIRT2 is a new therapeutic target for the treatment of CRC. The antitumor effects of shikonin on CRC seem to be mediated by SIRT2 upregulation via phospho-ERK inhibition.

People Found The Saddest Thing Living Inside This Tiny Box "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Two years thats how long the orangutan lived inside a dark, wooden box. The man who put him in there would occasionally visit, bringing him uncooked instant noodles and a sugary drink. But for the most part, the orangutan was left alone, and he had nothing to do but listen to the sounds of footsteps and human voices outside.

Credit: International Animal Rescue

Kotap, a 4-year-old male orangutan, was being kept as a pet by a man in West Borneo in Indonesia. While its not clear what happened to Kotaps mom, its pretty easy to fill in the blanks villagers probably killed her while cutting down forest to make way for palm oil plantations, which happens far too often.

Credit: International Animal Rescue

When mother orangutans who are killed have babies with them, villagers like to keep the infants as pets or sell them into the pet trade, even though doing so is illegal in Indonesia and other parts of Southeast Asia. In some cases, theyll even kill the mother just to get to her baby.

Credit: International Animal Rescue

For most of these babies, being raised without proper nutrition or even room to climb is a death sentence. But Kotap was one of the luckier ones. Eventually, the forestry department found out about Kotap, and this week the man finally surrendered Kotap to International Animal Rescue (IAR).

The man told the rescue team that he put Kotap inside the wooden box so the young ape wouldnt disturb the neighbors. But its possible he had others reasons for doing this.

Credit: International Animal Rescue

As orangutans get older, they become bigger and stronger and, while they are never suitable to be kept as domestic pets, that becomes increasingly obvious as they grow from cute, hairy babies into the wild animals that they are, Lis Key, PR and communications manager for IAR, told The Dodo. So its perhaps likely that the man confined Kotap to the box for more than one reason to prevent him from causing disruption around his neighbors, and also to contain his behav...

Metabolic profiling study of shikonin's cytotoxic activity in the Huh7 human hepatoma cell line. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Biosyst. 2017 May 2 ;13(5):841-851. PMID: 28265634 Abstract Title:  Metabolic profiling study of shikonin's cytotoxic activity in the Huh7 human hepatoma cell line. Abstract:  Shikonin and its enantiomer alkannin, which are natural products, have been extensively studied in vitro and in vivo for, among others, their antitumor activity. The investigation of the molecular pathways involved in their action is of interest, since they are not yet clearly defined. Metabolic profiling in cells can provide a picture of a cell's phenotype upon intervention, assisting in the elucidation of the mechanism of action. In this study, the cytotoxic effect of shikonin on a human hepatocarcinoma cell line was studied. Huh7 cells were treated with shikonin at 5M, and it was found that shikonin markedly inhibited cell growth. Metabolic profiling indicated alterations in the metabolic content of the cells and the culture media upon treatment, detecting the metabolic response of the cells. This study demonstrates the potential of metabolomics to improve knowledge on the mechanisms involved in shikonin's antitumor action.

Abstract:  CONTEXT: Shikonin is a kind of naphthoquinone compound found mainly in Lithospermum erythrorhizon Sieb,et Zucc. Previous studies have shown that Shikonin has anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and extensive pharmacological effects. According to new studies, Shikonin could also modulate the immune system function, but the effect to NK (nature killer) cells is yet unknown.OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect and mechanism of Shikonin on NK cells proliferation and cytotoxicity to colon cancer cell line (Caco-2).METHODS: The proliferation and cytotoxicity of NK cells cultured with Shikonin were detected with CCK-8 assay. The expressions of perforin, GranB and IFN- were examined with FCM. The content of TNF-alpha was disclosed with ELISA kit. p-ERK1/2 and p-Akt expression of NK cells were detected with western blot.RESULTS: With CCK-8 assay, it is found that Shikonin could significantly enhance NK cells proliferation and cytotoxicity to colon cancer cells. With FCM assay, it is found that Shikonin could improve the expression of perforin and GranB in a dose-dependent manner. Shikonin had no effect on TNF-alpha and IFN- expression. In mechanism, the study shows that Shikonin could enhance the expression of p-ERK1/2 and p-Akt.CONCLUSIONS: Shikonin enhances NK cells proliferation and cytotoxicity via the improvement of perforin, GranB, p-ERK1/2 and p-Akt expression.

The anticonvulsant effects of piperine ameliorate memory impairment, inflammation and oxidative stress in a rat model of pilocarpine-induced epilepsy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Ther Med. 2017 Feb ;13(2):695-700. Epub 2016 Dec 27. PMID: 28352353 Abstract Title:  Anticonvulsant effect of piperine ameliorates memory impairment, inflammation and oxidative stress in a rat model of pilocarpine-induced epilepsy. Abstract:  The primary active component of black pepper is piperine, which is purified and used to treat epilepsy, achieving higher efficiency when purified. The present study was conducted to evaluate whether the anticonvulsant effect of piperine ameliorates pilocarpine-induced epilepsy, and to investigate the mechanism underlying these effects. Epilepsy was induced in Sprague Dawley rats using pilocarpine. Pilocarpine-induced epilepsy in the rats was treated with 40 mg/kg piperine for 45 consecutive days. Status epilepticus and a Morris water maze test were used to analyze the anticonvulsant effects of piperine in the epileptic rats. Inflammation and oxidative stress were then measured using commercially-available kits following piperine treatment. Lastly, the activity of caspase-3 and the protein expression levels of B-cell lymphoma 2 (Bcl-2) and Bcl-2-associated X protein (Bax) were evaluated using commercially-available kits and western blot analysis, respectively. The results demonstrated that treatment with piperine was able to reduce the status epilepticus and prevented memory impairment following pilocarpine-induced epilepsy in rats. The anticonvulsant effects of piperine decreased inflammation and oxidative stress following pilocarpine-induced epilepsy in rats. The upregulated activity of caspase-3 and expression levels of Bax/Bcl-2 were suppressed following treatment with piperine in the rats with pilocarpine-induced epilepsy. These results suggest that the anticonvulsant effects of piperine ameliorate memory impairment, inflammation and oxidative stress in a rat model of pilocarpine-induced epilepsy.

Paralyzed Baby Goat Found Frozen To Ground Is So Happy To Run Again "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Caitlin Cimini doesnt know exactly what happened to the baby goat, but the story she got was pretty strange. Apparently, the baby goat was born on a New Jersey farm in the middle of a snowstorm, and abandoned by his mom. When the farmers eventually found the baby goat, he was half-dead and frozen to the ground. So the farmers scooped up the goat, took him inside their house and put him in the oven.

While placing a hypothermic animal in the oven with the door open has saved lives before, its definitely a very risky technique.

Credit: Rancho Relaxo

Its seriously one of the most dangerous things you can do because you cant regulate temperature in the oven, Cimini said.

Yet miraculously, the goat who would later be named Toast after his unusual start in life came back to life. But the farmers noticed that Toast couldnt move his back legs he was paralyzed.

Credit: Rancho Relaxo

Leanne Lauricella of Goats of Anarchy first rescued the goat, according to Cimini, but Lauricella couldnt take in any more goats at the time. So she asked Cimini to take him to her sanctuary, Rancho Relaxo.

Since Toast was paralyzed, Cimini assumed hed need a special cart to get around, and she looked into getting one made for him.

Credit: Rancho Relax

But when Cimini picked up Toast, the goat had a high fever, so she took him directly to the vet. The vet team stabilized Toast, and, while he was in their care, they examined his back legs and gave him injections in his joints.

They said that when he was abandoned by his mother in the snowstorm his umbilical cord was completely exposed, and he got a major infection through his umbilical cord, Cimini said. He was basically septic, and all of his joints were affected. They said because all the damage done to the joints and bones in the very beginning were so bad that there was no way that they were ever going to work again.There was also a high chance that theyd need to amputate, Cimini explained.

Amputation wasnt going to be the end of the world, since Cimini expected Toast to be in a cart anyway. Bu...

Former President of Merck Led Secret Biowarfare Program, Influencing Experiments on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Cassius Methyl, Guest
Waking Times

Merck & Co. is the worlds largest vaccine manufacturing corporation, and is one of the largest pharma companies in the world. They created such things as the MMR vaccine, and the HPV vaccine Gardasil.

As a corporation that has affected the lives of almost everyone around us in the Western world, with most people receiving their vaccinations that are known to do damage, we should know their history.

In this article, we will examine Mercks connection to biological warfare, and the implications of that connection. Merck & Co. is not to be confused with the German Merck KGaA, but they both originate from the original German Merck. Merck was founded in 1668, in Germany. By 1887, a US division of Merck called Merck & Co. was set up in New York by George Merck. George Merck moved to NY in 1891.

In April 1917, as the US entered the Great War (WWI), the government announced the seizure of corporations affiliated with Germany.

Merck & Co. was seized, but George Merck and partners founded a McKenna Corporation to bid on Merck as it was put up for auction, and they managed to buy Merck back in 1919, fully separating from the other Merck in Germany (as far as we know).

From that point, Merck made efforts to stay boldly on the side of the American war effort, and perhaps that influenced their involvement with the US biological warfare program during the peak of World War II.

In 1925, the same year Nazi chemical monopoly IG Farben was created, George Merck passed his company onto his son, George W. Merck.

Abstract:  Brain inflammation, characterized by increased microglia and astrocyte activation, increases during aging and is a key feature of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD). In AD, neuronal death and synaptic impairment, induced by amyloid- (A) peptide, are at least in part mediated by microglia and astrocyte activation. Glial activation results in the sustained production of proinflammatory cytokines and reactive oxygen species, giving rise to a chronic inflammatory process. Astrocytes are the most abundant glial cells in the central nervous system and are involved in the neuroinflammation. Astrocytes can be activated by numerous factors, including free saturated fatty acids, pathogens, lipopolysaccharide, and oxidative stress. Activation of astrocytes produces inflammatory cytokines and the enzyme cyclooxygenase-2, enhancing the production of A. Furthermore, the role of the receptor for advanced glycation end products/nuclear factor-B (NF-B) axis in neuroinflammation is in line with the nonenzymatic glycosylation theory of aging, suggesting a central role of the advanced glycation end products in the age-related cognitive and a possible role of nutraceuticals in the prevention of neuroinflammation and AD. However, modulation of P-glycoprotein, rather than antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, could be the major mechanism of polyphenolic compounds, including flavonoids. Curcumin, resvertrol, piperine,and other polyphenols have been explored as novel therapeutic and preventive agents for AD. The aim of this review is to critically analyze and discuss the mechanisms involved in neuroinflammation and the possible role of nutraceuticals in the prevention and therapy of AD by targeting neuroinflammation.

Rare Photos of Frida Kahlo as a Young Woman in the 1920s "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Rare Frida Kahlo Photos Frida Kahlo in the 1920s Frida Photos

Today, Frida Kahlo remains one of the most celebrated artists in modern art. In terms of subject matter, Kahlo favored self-portraits and scenes rooted in her Mexican heritage. Given the deeply personal nature of these themes, art historians and art lovers alike are able to learn about Kahlo through her paintings. While studying her art is an excellent way to get to know the artist, this rare collection of photographs also offers an intimate glimpse into her life.

Taken in the 1920s, the photos present Kahlowho was born in 1907as a young woman. Set in various locations over the course of a number of years, the photos trace Kahlo's journey into early adulthood. Some of them appear to be formal portraits of the artist. These photos were likely taken at National Preparatory School, where Kahlo was enrolled in 1922. In addition to traditional portrayals, casual shots with family, friends, peers, and her husband, fellow artist Diego Rivera, also comprise the collection of rare photographs. Even in such informal situations, Kahlo seldom smilesa persona she would retain in future photographs and stoic self-portraits.

While ample paintings and photographs of Kahlo exist in the public sphere, most of them are from later time periods. For example, her most well-known self-portrait paintings, like The Two Fridas, Self-Portrait With Thorn Necklace and Hummingbird, and The Broken Column, were produced in the late 1930s and 1940s. Similarly, iconic photographs taken by contemporaries like Nickolas Muray and Lucienne Bloch also depict an older Kahlo. Thus, these rare, earlier photographs help us to fill in the gaps and and see the artist like we've never seen her before.

These fascinating photographs offer a rare glimpse of Frida Kahlo in the 1920s.

How YOU Can Take Control of Your Own Healthcare "IndyWatch Feed Health"

No, this isnt about repealing or replacing Obamacare. Its about empowering you to make your own healthcare choices. Action Alert!

In February we told you about the Health Savings Act of 2017. Sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN), SB 403/HR 1175 allows Health Savings Account (HSA) funds to go toward dietary supplements without having to get a doctors prescription; the same would apply to Flexible Spending Accounts (FSAs). The bill does this by expanding the term medical care to include vitamins, minerals, herbs, homeopathic remedies, and other natural health products, and would allow spending up to $1,000 each year. Similar legislation was introduced in 2011 and 2013.

Were happy to report that the bill now also includes health coaches and nutrition services as allowable expenses for HSAs and FSAs. If passed, this bill will improve access to wellness and nutrition services for millions of people by allowing them to use pre-tax dollars for wellness expenses.

By making health coaches, nutrition services, and dietary supplements more affordable, this bill increases consumer choice and empowers individuals to take a proactive approach to their health.

Now, we must send a strong message of support to our elected officials to get momentum behind this important bill!

Action Alert! Write to your senators and representative in Congress, urging them to support SB 403/HR 1175, the Health Savings Act of 2017. Please send your message immediately.

Vet Sings To Nervous Puppy To Comfort Her Before Surgery "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Sometimes the best medicine isnt medicine at all.

Just ask this kindhearted veterinarian whos found a way to put his furry patients at ease   with a song.

Credit: Fox Hollow Animal Hospital

Dr. Ross Henderson, of Fox Hollow Animal Hospital in Colorado, was recently set to perform routine surgery on a fluffy puppy named Ruby. Not surprisingly, perhaps, when the time came for Ruby to be prepped for the procedure, she became a little nervous.

Lucky for Ruby, her vet knew just what to do to make her comfortable.

She was running around and jumping up on the kennel, whimpering, Henderson told The Dodo. I had my guitar there, so I decided to sing to her. She calmed down and put her head on my lap. Its a good testimony to how effective music can be.

Heres video of that special moment.Henderson says that he and the clinic staff have always sung to their animal patients to calm their nerves and to make them feel more at home, so the added instrumentation was just a logical next step.

My guitar lives here now, said the vet. A lot of pets have never been to a veterinary hospital before, so anything we can do to love on them is good especially considering how much love they give to us.

Not all animals, however, are so moved by the clinics musical stylings.

We have an office cat, named Greg, whos immune to the music. Its probably because he hears us singing so much. Other animals really respond to it, said Henderson. If we can inspire people to love on their pets by singing to them, then its a victory for sure.

A Graphic Novel in the Form of a Monster-Obsessed Childs Notebook "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris, published by Fantagraphics (all images courtesy Fantagraphics)

With a title like My Favorite Thing Is Monsters, a reader could reasonably assume that Fantagraphics most recent critical darling is a horror tale. The book does engage components of horror stories, like using the violently explicit covers of classic horror comics as chapter dividers or incorporating the features of monsters into the design of its characters. However, the constantly shifting style of Emil Ferriss debut graphic novel allows it to avoid the strictures of any one genre, allowing it to pivot between seemingly divergent storylines with great ease and efficacy.

Page from My Favorite Thing Is Monsters by Emil Ferris

Set in the same 1960s Chicago where Ferris spent her youth, the books main character is Karen Reyes, a 10-year-old obsessed with movie monsters. She lives with her superstitious single mother and ladies man brother Diego, an artist who teaches Karen an appreciation for fine art. Her world, however, is shattered after her disturbed upstairs neighbor Anka is found dead of a gunshot wound in her apartment. As Karen investigates the murder, the secrets of family members and nei...

This Graph Captures the Struggle of Organizing Your Photo Library "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Photo Library Management

The photo organization struggle is real. Whether youre a professional photographer shooting thousands of photos per client, or a hobbyist who cant resist grabbing your phone for every sunset, todays xkcd comic captures your photo organization struggles beautifully.

The comic graph shows the relationship between the number of photos you take, and the amount of time you have to organize them. The more photos you take, the harder it is to keep it organized and the more time you have to invest. Eventually, you either dont have enough time and fall into the Cant find good photos among the thousands of bad ones sector of the graph, or you dedicate all your time to organizing and Cant sleep, too busy sifting through photos to find the best ones.

As usual, if you hover over the comic, xkcd creator Randall Munroe adds to the visual with this helpful life hack:

A good lifehack is to use messy and unstable systems to organize your photos. That way, every five years or so it becomes obsolete and/or collapses, and you have to open it up and pick only your favorite pictures to salvage.

A photo library organizational fail safe of sorts. Unfortunately, for professional photographers whose job it is to cull thousands of photos for clients on a weekly basis, were all very likely to eventually fall into the Cant Sleep section of the graph.

A combination of curcumin with piperine exhibited profound cardioprotection compared to curcumin alone-treated group. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Indian J Pharmacol. 2017 Jan-Feb;49(1):65-70. PMID: 28458425 Abstract Title:  Cardioprotective effect of curcumin and piperine combination against cyclophosphamide-induced cardiotoxicity. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Curcumin is a well-established cardioprotective phytoconstituent, but the poor bioavailability associated with it is always a matter of therapeutic challenge. The present study was undertaken to increase the therapeutic efficacy of curcumin by combining with bio-enhancer like piperine against cyclophosphamide (CP)-induced cardiotoxicity in rats.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Rats (n = 8) were treated with curcumin (200 mg/kg, p.o.) alone and different dose combination of curcumin (100, 50, 25 mg/kg, p.o.) and piperine (20 mg/kg, p.o.) for 10 days. All the treated groups were subjected to CP (200 mg/kg, i.p.) toxicity on day 1. Twenty-four hours after the last treatment, the effects were evaluated by changes in electrocardiographic (ECG) parameters, serum biomarkers, lipid profile, tissue antioxidants, and histopathological examination. Serum and tissue homogenate parameters were measured by semi-autoanalyzer and spectrophotometer, respectively. Results obtained were assessed by one-way analysis of variance followed by Tukey-Karmer multiple comparison test.RESULTS: Incorporation of piperine with the doses of 50 and 25 mg/kg with curcumin exhibited significant beneficial effect compared to curcumin alone-treated group. The best effective group was a combination of curcumin 50 mg/kg with piperine 20 mg/kg which showed extremely significant (P

Over the bridge: The battle for the future of the Kinabatangan "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

SUKAU, Malaysia At first blush, the muddy waters of the Kinabatangan River in northern Borneo seem to laze through a hodge-podge of sleepy fishing and farming villages. The river winds past oil palm plantations pushing right up to the rivers edge, crumbling (and striking) limestone cliffs, and abutting explosions of vegetation extending from carpets of hyacinth (Hyacinthus spp.) introduced by a British colonist who liked the way they looked, according to local lore to the twisting lianas and the tops of the tall trees standing guard on the river bank. But like most rainforests, the stillness along Malaysias second-longest river belies what is in fact a dynamic and ever-changing place. The Kinabatangan and the narrow wildlife sanctuary named for it, pinned to its banks by thousands of hectares of oil palm on all sides, have recently pulled the state of Sabah into the spotlight, as the opposition from local and international conservation groups to a planned bridge in the town of Sukau across the river has grown. The bridge was cancelled in mid-April, according to a speech by Sabahs chief conservator of forests, Sam Mannan. But Saddi Abdul Rahman, Sukaus representative to the Sabah State Legislative Assembly, hasnt given up on the project yet, and said in a message to Mongabay that he will wait until he has official confirmation from the states chief minister.

Indian govt - Citizens dont have absolute right over their bodies, privacy complaint is bogus "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Citizens dont have absolute right over their bodies, privacy complaint is bogus - Indian govt
Indias government asserted to the countrys Supreme Court that citizens dont have absolute rights over their bodies, and the privacy argument is bogus. They were discussing a controversial new system, allegedly used to fight fake IDs.

The Aadhaar system involves biometric information such as blood and fingerprints stored in encrypted format, and initially, the government said it would only be voluntary.

However, the court was hearing three petitions against Aadhaar on Tuesday, with the petitioners arguing that Section 139AA of the Income Tax Act, which was introduced via this years latest Budget and Finance Act, is unconstitutional.

Section 139AA requires Indian citizens to cite their Aadhaar details or enrolment ID of their Aadhar application form in order to complete their income tax returns, as well as to apply for a PAN [Personal Account Number] starting from July 1. This makes it mandatory for citizens to get the unique identity number.

The government argued that the measure serves to weed out fake PAN cards and identity theft in general, used for activities such as the circulation of black money and terrorism funding. Aadhaar is a secure way to cope with the issues, the government said.

Today, you have black money which is being used in drug financing and terror financing. So it was decided to bring in a more robust system by which [t...

An Awesome Compilation Of Animal Attacks On Humans All Caught On Video "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Animal attacks on humans are no joke and I must say, the music background in the video below at the very least, is just a tad bit inappropriate. Animals dont attack humans only because they are hungry, although it is listed as one of the top reasons why. In fact, wildlife behavior is very much similar to the way we live, its about social behavior and not necessarily instinct. Social behavior between the different animal species is very complex.

When we feel threatened, frightened, bothered, or feel the need to protect our young, we do tend to get defensive. Apart from the five reasons listed below, animals attack when they are teased, awoken while sleeping, bothered while eating, have lost a mating opportunity, or are hungry, according to some. Animals do not usually eat humans, however, when there is a shortage of food they prepare their attacks.

Piperine attenuated cardiac fibrosis in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  EBioMedicine. 2017 Apr ;18:179-187. Epub 2017 Mar 14. PMID: 28330809 Abstract Title:  Piperine Attenuates Pathological Cardiac Fibrosis Via PPAR-/AKT Pathways. Abstract:  Mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) play critical roles in the process of cardiac hypertrophy. Previous studies have demonstrated that piperine activates AMPK and reduces the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK). However, the effect of piperine on cardiac hypertrophy remains completely unknown.Here, we show that piperine-treated mice had similar hypertrophic responses as mice treated with vehicle but exhibited significantly attenuated cardiac fibrosis after pressure overload or isoprenaline (ISO) injection. Piperine inhibited the transformation of cardiac fibroblasts to myofibroblasts induced by transforming growth factor- (TGF-) or angiotensin II (Ang II) in vitro. This anti-fibrotic effect was independent of the AMPK and MAPK pathway. Piperine blocked activation of protein kinase B (AKT) and, downstream, glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3). The overexpression of constitutively active AKT or the knockdown of GSK3 completely abolished the piperine-mediated protection of cardiac fibroblasts. The cardioprotective effects of piperine were blocked in mice with constitutively active AKT. Pretreatment with GW9662, a specific inhibitor of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor- (PPAR-), reversed the effect elicited by piperine in vitro. In conclusion, piperine attenuated cardiac fibrosis via the activation of PPAR- and the resultant inhibition of AKT/GSK3.

Blockchain Commercialization: Real World Applications Get Real "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

As blockchain technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, questions remain about whether it will hit the mark in terms of commercial value. Despite a number of promising use cases in the financial industry as well as clear application for sectors like healthcare, utilities and transportation, among many others, blockchains potential is a long way from being fully realized.

EY (formerly Ernst & Young), a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services believes that the time is ripe for blockchain to move deep into the world of commercialized solutions. In support of this endeavor, it recently announced the launch of EY Ops Chain, a set of applications and services that support efforts on the part of organizations to boost the commercial integration of blockchain technology across diverse industries not just finance.

Developed jointly by EY and a host of other industry collaborators, EY Ops works integratively with EYs broad swath of consulting, tax and audit expertise to bring real world solutions to the enterprise and supply chain management space.

Through the use of EY Ops, supply chain systems can be simplified and seamlessly integrated into digital contracts, inventory systems, logistics protocols, pricing, inventory and payments. This can lead to enhanced forecast accuracy and performance outcomes while ensuring a reduction of working capital requirements. Through this new development, EY will begin with offering financial services and supply chain management solutions across a number of different industries, including oil and gas, media and entertainment and automotive, among others.

Advancing Blockchain Technology

As further indication of EYs investment in blockchain technology, the organization also recently launched its Blockchain Lab in New York, coalescing financial services work with blockchain solutions in a single locale centered in New Yorks Union Square. This lab is the third for EY, joining their two other key blockchain centers in London and Trivandrum, part of EYs global research ecosystem, EY wavespace.

Tapscott Report: Blockchain Tech at the Heart of Canada's Economic Evolution "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Like many countries, Canada continues to pursue economic interests with the intent of reducing financial risk, boosting productivity and creating a more diversified job sector. According to Don Tapscott, noted Canadian blockchain thought leader and the bestselling author of the book Blockchain Revolution, Canadas economic evolution is bolstered by the intersection between the internet and blockchain technology. This assertion is addressed in a recent report he co-produced with his son Alex, The Blockchain Corridor: Building an Innovation Economy in the 2nd Era of the Internet.

According to the Tapscotts, the first internet era was predicated on the availability of information and content anywhere in the world and at any time. Now the second era, fueled by blockchain technology, is ushering in what is known as the Internet of Value, featuring a revolutionary distributed platform poised to reshape and advance the global business environment and world order.

This report goes on to suggest that Canada is rapidly emerging as the second eras global hub or, at the very least, one of a select group of such hubs. Bolstered by Canadas booming tech corridor located between Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo in southern Ontario, as well as its world leadership in quantum physics and artificial intelligence, this North American nation is well positioned for the new blockchain economy.

Then there are the fortunes of Vitalik Buterin, the tech wonderkid who grew up in Canada and was the primary co-founder of Ethereum, viewed by many as one of the most important blockchain projects in the world, with a market cap of nearly $2 billion.

Currently a number of ventures are part of a growing diaspora of entrepreneurs and startups in Canada, including the likes of Paycase, Protocol Fund, Tendermint, Nuco, Smartwallet, Jaxx/Decentral and Blockstream. They are situated in major cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and elsewhere throughout Canada.

Don Tapscott says that the ultimate purpose of the report, written for the Canadian Federal Government, was to highlight whats actually feasible for Canada in terms of becoming the global center of blockchain innovation. We make a number of pretty radical recommendations to the Canadian government about what they should be doing.

He cites Torontos rich trove of schools, good computer science advancements and collaborative financial institutions as a key catalyst of this run on innovation. Continues Tapscott: We have a growing number of powerful incubators and accelerators, such as the...

2017 Industry Figures Show Years Long Camera Sales Slump May be Ending "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

After years of declining sales figures and the requisite reporting on the industrys imminent collapse, it seems the camera market has finally plateaued. The latest CIPA numbers show modest growth in some areas and neutral numbers elsewhere, hinting that a long sales slump might finally be over.

Every quarter, the trade body CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) releases fresh shipment figures for digital stills cameras. And every quarter for several years, that report has shown declining numbersthe CIPA reports have become something of a harbinger of doom.

Well, no more.

The latest numbers released today show that Q1 shipments of fixed-lens cameras remained flat while shipments of Interchangeable lens cameras were up no declines anywhere. In fact, ILC shipments in February matched numbers from 2015, far outstripping 2016 for Valentines month and contributing to the overall increase in shipments over Q1 2016.

Of course, none of this means that digital cameras, and in particular fixed lens cameras, are suddenly popular again. As DPReview points out, if you compare these numbers to 5 years ago were still seeing a 34% decline in ILC sales and a whopping 84% decline in fixed-lens sales.

I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comeys letter on Oct. 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off.

In true Clinton form, Hillary pointed fingers at everyone but herself, and as you may have guessed, the President took to Twitter to correct the record:

Trump did run a great campaign, but Hillary still hasnt realized that perhaps if she hadnt lied about her medical issues, didnt have a sexual predator rapist for a husband, was a bit more likable, and had actually accomplished something meaningful during her long and illustrious career as a dirtbag politician she may have won the electoral college vote.

Multiple myeloma tumor cells are selectively killed by pharmacologically-dosed ascorbic acid. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  EBioMedicine. 2017 Apr ;18:41-49. Epub 2017 Feb 16. PMID: 28229908 Abstract Title:  Multiple Myeloma Tumor Cells are Selectively Killed by Pharmacologically-dosed Ascorbic Acid. Abstract:  High-dose chemotherapies to treat multiple myeloma (MM) can be life-threatening due to toxicities to normal cells and there is a need to target only tumor cells and/or lower standard drug dosage without losing efficacy. We show that pharmacologically-dosed ascorbic acid (PAA), in the presence of iron, leads to the formation of highly reactive oxygen species (ROS) resulting in cell death. PAA selectively kills CD138(+) MM tumor cells derived from MM and smoldering MM (SMM) but not from monoclonal gammopathy undetermined significance (MGUS) patients. PAA alone or in combination with melphalan inhibits tumor formation in MM xenograft mice. This study shows PAA efficacy on primary cancer cells and cell lines in vitro and in vivo.

BitCAD Announces a Crowdsale Campaign "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

BitCAD Announces a Crowdsale Campaign

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. Bitcoin.com does not endorse nor support this product/service. Bitcoin.com is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

MAY 3, 2017 BitCAD, a cryptographic smart platform, has announced a crowdfunding campaign to back the development and production of a wide variety of hardware and software solutions based on blockchain technology. The products seek to revolutionize the very core of business relationships and make them easier while enhancing security and reliability of the entire paradigm. Crowdsale will start on May 4, 2017 at 12:00 GMT.

The platforms software solutions include a comprehensive system focused on managing financial processes like accounting, CRM, asset management, or online banking in a decentralized manner. The BitCAD system enables constructing smart contracts for every occasion and introduces a formal legal language to make operations smooth and seamless. Thanks to blockchain technology, once terms and conditions are agreed upon, they cannot be changed.

Another solution offers an electronic arbitration system covering both platform members and third parties seeking dispute settlement. Parties may agree any jurisdiction and assign judges from legal systems they deem applicable while ensuring the contract in question meets the legal requirements of said jurisdiction. This tackles the problem of contract applicability across various countries which causes businesses and individuals to spend a fortune seeking a legal advice.

Finally, the company develops a decentralized system for biometric identification of users that works as fast as its classic counterparts with no involved risks of compromising sensitive data due to vulnerabilities inherent in centralized solutions.
The crowdsale shall last for one month, from May 4th to June 4th of 2017. Out of 100,000,000 tokens supplied overall, 51 per cent will be subject to sale over the course of the campaign, with the remaining funds distributed between the projects team and early backers (20 per cent), business specialists and academic researchers (27 per cent), while the remaining 2 pe...

The 2017 Press Freedom Index world map shows alarming levels of red and black, the colors used to indicate a severe or even total lack of press freedom. Countless journalists, many cartoonists among them, face a daily struggle against regimes that try to silence them. Today is World Press Freedom Day, and to mark this day we have selected 10 cartoons that remind us of the power of the media, the responsibility  of the media, and the importance of press freedom for freedom in general.

Human-wildlife conflict is decimating leopard numbers in one of their last African strongholds "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

South Africa banned the hunting of leopards last year amid uncertainty over the species numbers and ongoing threats to its survival posed by mismanagement of the trophy hunting industry and the illegal trade in its fur. Leopards (Panthera pardus) are notoriously difficult animals to study in the wild due to their secretive nature. They are primarily nocturnal creatures who live solitary lives and range over vast areas of land in search of food and mates. The hunting ban in South Africa is still in effect as more information on the leopard abundance is collected by authorities. The species is currently listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. According to the authors of a study published in the journal Royal Society Open Science last month that seeks to shed light on the population dynamics and conservation status of leopards living outside protected areas in South Africa, the species is declining in greater numbers and at a much more rapid pace than has been previously understood. But while the researchers argue that, based on their findings, the ban on leopard hunting should not be allowed to resume in areas where the species is facing sharp declines in numbers, they add that efforts to reduce often-lethal conflicts between leopards and humans might have an even bigger impact. A research team led by Dr. Samual Williams of the Department of Anthropology at Durham University in the UK conducted a long-term trap survey from 2012 to 2016 in order to study

Loving Big Brother Surprises His Little Sister with Unforgettable Disney Princess Photo Shoot "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Big Brother Disney Photo Shoot Christina Angel Paint the Sky Photography Disney Princess

As a professional children's photographer, Christina Angel is used to capturing kids' cute moments. Even with this ample experience, however, nothing is quite as precious as photographing her own childrenespecially when it's her teenage son's idea.

After spying a Prince Charming costume online, Angel's 13-year-old son, Anthony, was inspired to surprise his little sister, Anabel, with a Disney photo shoot. Naturally, Angel was thrilled with his request. Like many 5-year-olds, Anabel loves all things Disney, and Angel was certain she'd enjoy the sweet session. In addition to her young daughter's happiness, however, Angel was optimistic that this shoot would benefit Anthony as well. At the tender age of 13, Anthony suffers from depression. Thus, given his current state, his mother was over the moon that he came up with the fun idea. When you have a child who battles with themselves day after day, Angel tells DIY Photography, there is nothing you wouldnt pay to see them smile.

To prepare for the little sister and big brother Disney photo shoot, Angel bought Anabel a Snow White costume to match Anthony's recently purchased Prince Charming ensemble. Once he was all dressed, he surprised his overjoyed sister with the gown and matching accessories. They then walked to a local garden, where the Disney-themed duo posed for the magical shots. She loved absolutely every second of her photo shoot with her favorite boy in the world,' Angel explains. I don't have to tell you all that. I'm sure you can see it on her face in every photo.

Angel is elated that the photos turned out so beautifully. As a mom to 7, she feels fortunate that her childrenespecially Anthony and Anabel, who have a significant age gaphave grown so close. Watching their bond as [Anabel] grows melts my heart every day, she beams. I am so proud to be their mom, and beyond happy that I'm handy enough with a camera to keep these memories forever.

In a sweet Disney photo shoot, children's photographer Christina Angel captures the bond between her son and daughter.

Holocaust Survivor Viktor Frankl Explains Why If We Have True Meaning in Our Lives, We Can Make It Through the Darkest of Times "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In one school of popular reasoning, people judge historical outcomes that they think are favorable as worthy tradeoffs for historical atrocities. The argument appears in some of the most inappropriate contexts, such as discussions of slavery or the Holocaust. Or in individual thought experiments, such as that of a famous inventor whose birth was the result of a brutal assault. There are a great many people who consider this thinking repulsive, morally corrosive, and astoundingly presumptuous. Not only does it assume that every terrible thing that happens is part of a benevolent design, but it pretends to know which circumstances count as unqualified goods, and which can be blithely ignored. It determines future actions from a tidy and convenient story of the past.

We might contrast this attitude with a more Zen stance, for example, a radically agnostic wait and see approach to everything that happens. Not-knowing seems to give meditating monks a great deal of serenity in practice. But the theory terrifies most of us. Effects must have causes, we think, causes must have effects, and in order to predict whats going to happen next (and thereby save our skins), we must know why were doing what were doing. The deep impulse is what psychologist and psychotherapist Viktor Frankl identifies, in his pre-gender-neutrally titled book, as Mans Search for Meaning. Despite the misuse of this faculty to create neurotic or dehumanizing myths, mans search for meaning, writes Frankl, is the primary motivation in his life and not a secondary rationalization of instinctual drives.

Frankl understood perfectly well how the construction of meaningthrough narrative, art, relationships, social fictions, etc.might be perverted for murderous ends. He was a survivor of four concentration camps, which took the lives of his parents, brother, and wife. The first part of his book, Experiences in a Concentration Camp, recounts the horror in detail, sparing no one accountability for their actions. From these experiences, Frankl draws a conclusion, one he explains in the interview above in two parts from 1977. The lesson one could learn from Auschwitz, he says, and in other concentration cam...

President Trump met Wednesday with Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas at the White House, pressing him to do more to combat and condemn terrorism while voicing confidence he can help mediate a lasting Middle East peace agreement.

That goal has eluded all the presidents modern predecessors, including Barack Obama, but Trump vowed Wednesday: We will get it done.

Im committed to working with Israel and the Palestinians to reach an agreement, Trump said. I will do whatever is necessary to facilitate the agreement.

Acknowledging an Israeli-Palestinian accord is seen as the toughest deal to make, Trump told Abbas, Perhaps we can prove them wrong before heading into a meeting with the Palestinian Authority president.

Woman Spends An Hour Looking For Kitten And Finds Her In The Weirdest Place "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

When Chanel the kitten was just 2 weeks old, she ended up at a public shelter that didnt have the time or resources to care for a kitten so young. The shelter decided that unfortunately, if no one came to claim the kitten, she would have to be put down.

Britney Diane does a lot of volunteer work with rescue animals, and so when she saw a Facebook post saying that Chanel would be put down at 5 p.m. that day if no one pulled her from the shelter, she knew she had to step up to help.

Credit: Britney Diane

Usually shelters put down kittens when they have nobody to take care of them, because you practically have to serve as their mother bottle-feed them, pee and poop them, burp them, etc., every two to three hours, around the clock, Diane told The Dodo. A friend of mine went to pull her because she lived closer, and if I went I wouldn't have made it in time, and we met up and Ive been her rescuer ever since!

Chanel is now 4 weeks old, and an extremely sweet, mischievous little kitten. She has a crate she hangs out in because shes so young, but when her foster mom lets her out, she loves to do adventurous things like try to play with her dog foster sibling whos much, much bigger than she is.

She also, of course, loves to find the best hiding places.

Credit: Britney Diane


One day while Chanel was exploring, she found the absolute perfect place to snuggle up and hide for a while, and her foster mom soon noticed that she was nowhere to be found. Diane and her family spent an hour searching everywhere they could think of that the little kitten may have gotten into until finally, they found her in the most unexpected place.

We looked at the main places that made sense to us at the time: under the couches, under all the furniture, the fridge even though we are pretty sure she wouldn't be able to fit under there, we just wanted to make sure, Diane said. Finally, Grandpa sat down at the kitchen table and went to get a tissue, and we realized she was in there.

For the entire hour her family had been searching, little Chanel was curled up inside the tissue box, just hanging ou...

A Three-Minute Introduction to Buckminster Fuller, One of the 20th Centurys Most Productive Design Visionaries "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Architect, inventor, theorist, and all-around fount of ideas Buckminster Fuller came up with many new things, though most of us associate him with one above all: geodesic domes. Those distinctive hemispheric structures built out of strong triangular parts, having gone in and out of vogue over the decades, most recently reappeared in the zeitgeist as the type of lodging promised to the attendees of the ill-conceived Fyre Festival  an ultra-luxury market-targeted disaster not representative, safe to say, of the world Fuller spent his entire career trying to realize. His vision of a future for Spaceship Earth, as he called it, drove him to create all he created, from new maps to new houses to new cars to new sleeping methods. But what did he base that vision on?

Fullers philosophy could be best summarized as being a social thinker, believing that humanitys survival is contingent upon how it manages Spaceship Earth and the resources it contains, says the narrator of the three-minute Prosocial Progress Foundation primer above, and that creating abundance whilst doing little to no harm to the environment would help to alleviate a lot of the problems in the world today.




With every project he emphasized systems thinking, or thinking premised on the idea that the world is an interconnected system with interconnected problems, and that a way to solve these problems would be to call upon collective action. Wed all have to...

U.S. General Confirms: Special Operations Teams Will Be Sent To Take Out North Korean Nuke Sites "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

special-ops1

With China issuing a final warning to North Korea earlier today, and U.S. President Donald Trump keeping all options on the table as he prepares a response to continued North Korean military posturing and rhetoric, Army General Raymond A. Thomas confirmed in sworn testimony to a Congressional sub committee that special operations teams will be utilized as part of any conflict with the rogue state and would likely be sent in to secure and/or destroy North Korean nuclear facilities in the event of war:

Army Gen. Raymond A. Thomas stated in testimony to a House subcommittee that Army, Navy, and Air Force commandos are based both permanently and in rotations on the Korean peninsula in case conflict breaks out.

The special operations training and preparation is a warfighting priority, Thomas said in prepared testimony. There are currently around 8,000 special operations troops deployed in more than 80 countries.

We are actively pursuing a training path to ensure readiness for the entire range of contingency operations in which [special operations forces], to include our exquisite [countering weapons of mass destruction] capabilities, may play a critical role, he told the subcommittee on emerging threats.

We are looking comprehensively at our force structure and capabilities on the peninsula and across the region to maximize our support to U.S. [Pacific Command] and [U.S. Forces Korea]. This is my warfighting priority for planning and support.

Special forces troops would be responsible for locating and destroying North Korean nuclear weapons and missile delivery systems, such as mobile missiles. They also would seek to prevent the movement of the weapons out of the country during a conflict.

Special operations missions are said by military experts to include intelligence gathering on the location of nuclear and chemical weapons sites for targeting by bombers. They also are likely to include direct action assaults on facilities to sabotage the weapons, or to prevent the weapons from being stolen, or set off at the sites by the North Koreans.

Mexican ecologist Jos Sarukhn wins 2017 Tyler Prize "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The 2017 Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement will be awarded to Mexican ecologist Jos Sarukhn on May 4 at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., for his scientific contributions to the field of biological diversity. He joins the likes of E.O. Wilson, Mongabay Advisory Board member Jane Goodall, and a host of others whove received the Tyler Prize, which rewards achievements in the fields of environmental policy, health, air and water pollution, ecosystems, biodiversity, and energy resources. Professor Sarukhn was President of National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in the early 1990s, a time when Mexicos environment was under great strain. Then-Mexican President Carlos Salinas turned to him for advice on what to do, and in response Sarukhn proposed a federal agency focused on understanding the countrys considerable biodiversity (Mongabay recently estimated that it is the 5th most biodiverse country in the world).

The protest a follow-up to the 2014 march in New York City was announced in January, coinciding with both Earth Day weekend and President Donald Trumps 100th day in office.

The president has begun to roll back regulations that were put into place to slow climate change, which he has called a Chinese hoax. According to organizer estimates, 300,000 joined in nationwide, with 150,000 on the National Mall alone. Other estimates peg the Washington attendance as high as 250,000.

Vaccine Producer Mercks President Led Secret Biowarfare Program, Influencing Experiments on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Vaccine Producer Merck's President Led Secret Biowarfare Program, Influencing Experiments on Americans

By Cassius Methyl

Merck & Co. is the worlds largest vaccine manufacturing corporation, and is one of the largest pharma companies in the world. They created such things as the MMR vaccine, and the HPV vaccine Gardasil.

As a corporation that has affected the lives of almost everyone around us in the Western world, with most people receiving their vaccinations that are known to do damage, we should know their history.

In this article, we will examine Mercks connection to biological warfare, and the implications of that connection.

Merck & Co. is not to be confused with the German Merck KGaA, but they both originate from the original German Merck.

Merck was founded in 1668, in Germany.

By 1887, a US division of Merck called Merck & Co. was set up in New York by George Merck. George Merck moved to NY in 1891.

In April 1917, as the US entered the Great War (WWI), the government announced the seizure of corporations affiliated with Germany.

Merck & Co. was seized, but George Merck and partners founded a McKenna Corporation to bid on Merck as it was put up for auction, and they managed to buy Merck back in 1919, fully separating from the other Merck in Germany (as far as we know).

From that point, Merck made efforts to stay boldly on the side of the American war effort, and perhaps that influenced their involvement with the US biological warfare program during the peak of World War II.

In 1925, the same year Nazi chemical monopoly IG Farben was created, George Merck passed his company onto his son, George W. Merck.

George W. Merck grew up in a privileged position, using t...

The Multislider was developed with videographers and timelapse photographers in mind, and its exactly the kind of gear idea that makes you go, I wish Id thought of that! It seems simple: why limit a slider to a straight line? But whats simple in theory is difficult to design in practice, which makes Waterbirds functional design that much more impressive.

Heres a video intro to the slider, its many features, and some footage of the prototype being used IRL:

Using the locking mechanisms on the end, you can set whatever slider radius you like and lock it into place. And if you want even more dynamic shapes, the slider will allow you to lock part of it into place while bending another section, so a bend can turn into a straight slide seamlessly.

When it comes to market this Summer, the Multislider will be available in 80 cm (~2.6 feet), 120 cm (~3.9 feet), and 150 cm (~4.9 feet) lengths standard, but youll be able to custom-order one that is as long as you would like. All models come with a motor, controller, and battery pack, and can be controlled by a phone or tablet though Bluetooth Low Energy.

Heres a closer look at the Multislider, followed by an in-person look at the product by cinema5D at NAB:

Heads Up: The FBI is Harassing an Activists Friends and Family in Asheville, NC "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Earth First! Newswire

In early April, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents began contacting friends, acquaintances, and the family of an activist and Earth First!er in Asheville, North Carolina.

Beginning on April 4, the agentsspecifically an agent named Miriam Oviedo-Clarkstarted contacting people in the activists personal life. When those being questioned asked what the questions were about, the FBI agent vaguely responded that it was about an investigation and encouraged them to pressure the activist to contact the FBI. Upon hearing this, the activist contacted their lawyer, informed people close to them about what was happening and that they should never talk to the police or federal agents. The FBI then started harassing the activists family, calling their parents home persistently to try and get information out of them. The activists lawyer then called the FBI and told them that the activist is not going to
cooperate and is going to remain silent.

The activist being targeted has refused to speak with law enforcement throughout this process, and will continue to do so.

Remember, if an FBI agent contacts you, you do not have to speak to themand you never should. They are trained to lie to you, and to try to trick you, and any information you give them, no matter how seemingly innocent, could cause serious harm to you, your friends, your comrades, and any movement of resistance of which you are a part. If an agent knocks, do not answer the door, as them to leave their card at the door and to leave, then contact an attorney immediately.

Look at these resources for more information on what to do if an agent contacts you or people you know:

Photographer Souvid Datta Appears to Have Plagiarized Mary Ellen Mark "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The award-winning photographer Souvid Datta found himself in the middle of a controversy this week when his photo of a young sex trafficking victim was used to promote a photo contest. But now a serious new accusation has emerged that threatens Dattas credibility as a photojournalist: one of plagiarism.

After reading Benjamin Chestertons coverage of the LensCulture contest controversy, Shreya Bhat of Bangalore, India, reached out to PetaPixel with something she had first noticed back in 2014.

At the time, one of Dattas photo projects was receiving widespread attention in major publications. Titled In the Shadows of Kolkata, the photos documented the cycle of sexual violence among adult sex workers and children in Sonagachi, Kolkata, India Sonagachi is one of the largest red light districts in South Asia.

When viewing the series at the Huffington Post, one particular photo caught Bhats eye:

A photo from In the Shadows of Kolkata by Souvid Datta.

While the HuffPo photo didnt have a caption, the same photo was published in a photo essay written by Datta himself at the Scribbler, and Datta did include a caption there. It read:

Chilliwack First Nations bands reject Kinder Morgan cash "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

by Paul Henderson / The Chilliwack Progress

The vote was close and turnout was low but years of consultation has culminated in a group of local Sto:lo bands rejecting a mutual benefits agreement as part of Kinder Morgans Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project.

Over the last few years, the Tselxwyeqw Tribe worked to negotiate a mutual benefits agreement with Kinder Morgan, but they decided to put a final decision on accepting that agreement to the membership.

Just 301 members of the nine bands Aitchelitz, Skowkale, Shxwh:y, Soowahile, Squiala, Tzeachten, Yakweakwioose, Kwaw kwaw Apilt and Skwah voted in the April 22 referendum that asked the question: Do you approve the Bands entering into this Mutual Benefits Agreement?

Results of the April 22, 2017 Tselxwyeqw Tribe referendum on whether or not to accept Kinder Morgans mutual benefits agreement. Of the 301 ballots cast, 167 voted to reject the agreement while 134 voted in favour. (Tselxwyeqw Tribe)

At the end of the day 134, or 44.5 per cent, voted yes and 167, or 55.5 per cent, voted no.

And while the close outcome, along with news that other bands have signed agreements, seems to point to a deep division in Sto:lo country, long-time environmental activist and Soowahlie band member Larry Commodore said he is happy with the result.

I was probably the most outspoken one in opposition to the mutual benefits agreement, so it was a good outcome from my perspective, Commodore told The Progress.

After the vote, Tselxwyeqw Tribe board president Chief David Jimmie informed members of the outcome via online video.

Watch a Reading of Steve Bannons Screenplay Which Attempted to Turn Shakespeares Coriolanus Into a Rap Musical "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Somewhere between working at Goldman Sachs, and calling the shots for Breitbart and Donald Trump, the Voldemortian Steve Bannon went to Hollywood and made 18 films, many of them political. Described as the Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party movement (by Andrew Breitbart himself), Bannon helped produce the Ronald Reagan documentary In the Face of Evil and Fire from the Heartland: The Awakening of the Conservative Woman. But hes perhaps best known for writing a treatment for the never-made documentary, Destroying the Great Satan: The Rise of Islamic Fascism in America. The eight page draft, writes The Washington Post, proposed a three-part movie that would trace the culture of intolerance behind sharia law, examine the Fifth Column made up of Islamic front groups and identify the American enablers paving the road to this unique hell on earth.' Looking back, its no wonder that Bannon tried to engineer a ban of Muslims immigrants upon entering the White House.

For anyone interested in revisiting another unrealized Bannon production, you can now watch (above) a table read of his screenplay for The Thing I Am. Co-written with Julia Jones during the late 1990s, its a rap musical adaptation of Shakespeares Coriolanus set in South Central Los Angeles during the 1992 riots after the LAPD beating of Rodney King. Put together by an organization called Now This, the read features Rob Corddry, Lucas Neff, Parvesh Cheena, Daniele Gaither, Gary Anthony Williams, Charlie Carver, Cedric Yarborough, and hip hop artist A.J. Crew. And, as the website Refinery29 warns, its full of cussing, the n-word, and mentions of crotch grabs.

Blockchain Commercialization: Real World Applications Get Real "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

As blockchain technology continues to advance at a rapid pace, questions remain about whether it will hit the mark in terms of commercial value. Despite a number of promising use cases in the financial industry as well as clear application for sectors like healthcare, utilities and transportation, among many others, blockchains potential is a long way from being fully realized.EY (formerly Ernst & Young), a global leader in assurance, tax, transaction and advisory services believes that the time is ripe for blockchain to move deep into the world of commercialized solutions. In support of this endeavor, it recently announced the launch of EY Ops Chain, a set of applications and services that support efforts on the part of organizations to boost the commercial integration of blockchain technology across diverse industries not just finance. Developed jointly by EY and a host of other industry collaborators, EY Ops works integratively with EYs broad swath of consulting, tax and audit expertise to bring real world solutions to the enterprise and supply chain management space. Through the use of EY Ops, supply chain systems can be simplified and seamlessly integrated into digital contracts, inventory systems, logistics protocols, pricing, inventory and payments. This can lead to enhanced forecast accuracy and performance outcomes while ensuring a reduction of working capital requirements. Through this new development, EY will begin with offering financial services and supply chain management solutions across a number of different industries, including oil and gas, media and entertainment and automotive, among others. Advancing Blockchain TechnologyAs further indication of EYs investment in blockchain technology, the organization also recently launched its Blockchain Lab in New York, coalescing financial services work with blockchain solutions in a single locale centered in New Yorks Union Square. This lab is the third for EY, joining their two other key blockchain centers in London and Trivandrum, part of EYs global research ecosystem, EY wavespace.To fuel the launch of EY Ops Chain, EY is pouring money into research while attracting top talent in areas like cryptography, physics, math and software development all with the goal of building momentum around the mature and scalable design of blockchain services. These professionals will be charged with assisting clients in applying blockchain and distributed ledger technology amid a rapidly evolving blockchain environment. In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine, Paul Brody, EYs Global Innovation Leader, said that EY is strongly invested in putting blockchain technology to work in the commercial realm. We believe that while most companies are much more focused on being part of large scale ecosystems, their IT capabilities havent kept up. Using blockchains, EY can give companies visibility to...

Tapscott Report: Blockchain Tech at the Heart of Canadas Economic Evolution "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J

Like many countries, Canada continues to pursue economic interests with the intent of reducing financial risk, boosting productivity and creating a more diversified job sector. According to Don Tapscott, noted Canadian blockchain thought leader and the bestselling author of the book Blockchain Revolution, Canadas economic evolution is bolstered by the intersection between the internet and blockchain technology. This assertion is addressed in a recent report he co-produced with his son Alex, The Blockchain Corridor: Building an Innovation Economy in the 2nd Era of the Internet.According to the Tapscotts, the first internet era was predicated on the availability of information and content anywhere in the world and at any time. Now the second era, fueled by blockchain technology, is ushering in what is known as the Internet of Value, featuring a revolutionary distributed platform poised to reshape and advance the global business environment and world order. This report goes on to suggest that Canada is rapidly emerging as the second eras global hub or, at the very least, one of a select group of such hubs. Bolstered by Canadas booming tech corridor located between Toronto and Kitchener-Waterloo in southern Ontario, as well as its world leadership in quantum physics and artificial intelligence, this North American nation is well positioned for the new blockchain economy. Then there are the fortunes of Vitalik Buterin, the tech wonderkid who grew up in Canada and was the primary co-founder of Ethereum, viewed by many as one of the most important blockchain projects in the world, with a market cap of nearly $2 billion. Currently a number of ventures are part of a growing diaspora of entrepreneurs and startups in Canada, including the likes of Paycase, Protocol Fund, Tendermint, Nuco, Smartwallet, Jaxx/Decentral and Blockstream. They are situated in major cities like Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and elsewhere throughout Canada. Don Tapscott says that the ultimate purpose of the report, written for the Canadian Federal Government, was to highlight whats actually feasible for Canada in terms of becoming the global center of blockchain innovation. We make a number of pretty radical recommendations to the Canadian government about what they should be doing.He cites Torontos rich trove of schools, good computer science advancements and collaborative financial institutions as a key catalyst of this run on innovation. Continues Tapscott: We have a growing number of powerful incubators and accelerators, such as the Ryerson DMZ, which was rated #1 in North America. And the recently established Blockchain Research Institute has garnered significant funding and buy-in from the federal government, Ontario government and the City of Toronto. Even the Toronto Stock Exchange as well as a big hospital network here are in the mix.Tapscott mused, Its a wei...

Englands Failure in the War on Cancer: Lunacy on Parade "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In the long, long run, the medical cartel is Globalisms most important component. It pacifies populations through poisons called medicines. And the propaganda wing of the cartel is so successful that citizens, watching the news at night, seeing men in white coats descending from a plane into a Third-World country, ready to treat people suffering from starvation and sewage piped directly into the drinking water, believe this is a humanitarian missionas if drugs or vaccines could cure starvation. (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

How would you assess these outcomes? The drugs failed to prolong life for more than a few months. The drugs were highly toxic and harmed the patients. Prior clinical trials of the drugs showed no appreciable benefits, but the drugs were released for public use anyway.

Humans of New York Attends Met Gala to Capture Intimate Portraits of Guests "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Humans of New York

She always responds with empathy. She meets anger with empathy. She meets hate with empathy. Shell take the time to imagine what happened to a person when they were 5 or 6 years old. And shes made me a more empathetic person. I had a very fractured relationship with my father. Before he died, she made me remember things I didnt want to remember. She made me remember the good times.

To call the annual Met Gala a star-studded event is an understatement. The soiree, which is often referred to as the Oscars of the East Coast, is a whos who of fashion, entertainment, and media. Guests range from A-list celebrities like Kim Kardashian West and Katy Perry to fashion icons like Diane von Furstenberg to visionaries like Instagram co-founder Kevin Systrom. This makes Humans of New York (HONY) founder and photographer Brandon Stanton an unconventional pick to attend the Met Gala; his subjects are more grounded, and he's known for documenting the livesincluding triumphs and strugglesof everyday people in both New York and abroad. But, as in previous years, hes covered the event on behalf of Vogue. The results are Humans of New York stories with a 2017 Met Gala twist.

The 11 intimate portraits are in the same style as other HONY pieces. To begin, Stanton quietly approached each of the subjects and, for about 10 minutes, they talked about life. Although the people attending this event live drastically different lives than those that Stanton usually covers, the sentiments expressed are unequivocally humanregardless of your station in life.

Although its impossible to not recognize some of these faceslike Matt Damon and Blake LivelyStanton keeps the subjects of these photos anonymous. Divorced from famous names, were left to appreciate the humanity of it all.

For the 2017 Met Gala, Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York talked to attendees of the soiree. Presented in the style of Humans of New York stories, they had the Met Gala twist.

Monsanto Hired Paid Internet Trolls to Counter Bad Public Image, Lawsuit Claims "IndyWatch Feed Health"

monsanto-trollsBy Carey Wedler

Agrochemical giant Monsanto hired Internet trolls to combat negative perceptions about their brand on social media and across the Internet, according to a lawsuit filed by U.S. Right to Know, a nonprofit organization working for transparency and accountability in the American food system. The company has also been accused of manufacturing scientific research to support their products.

The allegations come amid 50 lawsuits, filed in a U.S. district court in San Francisco, that claim exposure to Roundup herbicide caused them or their loved ones to develop non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and that Monsanto covered up the risks, as summarized by U.S. Right to Know in a press release.

In a court document dated April 24, the plaintiffs attorneys accused Monsanto of operating a program called Let Nothing Go. The program is allegedly intended  to leave nothing, not even facebook comments, unanswered; through a series of third parties, it employs individuals who appear to have no connection to the industry, who in turn post positive comments on news articles and Facebook posts, defending Monsanto, its chemicals, and GMOs.

White House Security Compromised? "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Donald Trumps son-n-law Jared Kushner is feared have been compromised during his recent trip to Iraq, says retired Secret Service agent Robert Felt.

On 3 April, Kushner and his entourage landed in Baghdad, invited by Robert Dunsford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to evaluate the militarys success in restoring peace and prosperity to the war-torn nation. Kushners party, our source says, included body doubles, decoys who had undergone plastic surgery to make them look like Kushner; they had also attended two months of Kushner Courses, during which they were taught how to talk, walk, and think like Kushner. They graduated the class only after replicating Kushners mannerisms as if they were second nature.

According to Mr. Felt, the final test was the most challenging. Each double had to approach and converse with Ivanka, and put on an act so convincing that the first daughter actually believed she was talking to her husband. From what I heard, four doubles gave stellar performances; she never suspected she was talking to anyone other than her husband. After that, two body doubles accompanied him to Iraq.

There was concern that Kushner might make a tempting target for ISIL or FSA or al-Nusra freedom fighters.  Moreover, intelligence reports had cautioned that a company of Ukrainian Tatar anti-separatists from Crimea had arrived in the Syrak Theater, intent on organizing false-flag events, with the objective of facilitating hostilities between Turkish and Russian forces in Syria.  The international implications were such, that the Pentagon insisted that Mr. Kushner be accompanied by at ...

Bands Demo Recording Could Be Paid For If Melania Trump Lived In The White House For 1.5 Seconds "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

WASHINGTON The anarcho-punk band Witness Destruction Program could produce their entire demo for the same amount of money taxpayers would save by First Lady Melania Trump living in the White House for just 1.5 seconds, according to the bands accountant.

Ms. Trumps unprecedented decision to live apart from her husband, President Donald Trump, following his election to the presidency has been met with heavy opposition. Some estimates put the taxpayer burden at over $1.5 million per day equating to over $62,500 an hour, or about $1,050 per minute, which is roughly $24 every 1.5 seconds.

That $24 is exactly what we need, claimed frontman Mark Hazzard. We got a studio set up in the garage, with milk cartons on the walls and everything. We found an old 4-track recorder at the dump. All we need is $24 to pay my buddy Tom to swipe cassettes from Walgreens and mix it all. Toms really hooking us up; I dont see why Melania cant hook us up, too.

Witnesses confirmed the bands Facebook page currently features a pinned status with a note demanding resources. We will not be silenced! the note read. We DEMAND Melania Trump fund our demo by literally just popping in and saying Hi to the man she allegedly loves. Do not let them censor our art! The status has so far received over 7 likes.

And those likes are just the beginning, insisted Hazzard. We plan on retweeting anyone using the hashtag, #PopInAndSayHi, until the First Lady does the right thing.

Id mix it for free if I could, said Tom, who refused to disclose his last name because of some totally fucked child support shit [hes] currently laying low from. But if I do this job for free, its gonna make it harder for me to find paying work to support myself in the future. Plus, I need smokes. Dont look to me. Look to Washington.

Ok, We Get It. You Shot It With Your Phone. "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Ok, we get it. You shot it with your phone. You brought your DSLR, but you fell into a fountain and waterlogged all your gear. The repair estimate was nearly $2,000, except you went to Thailand and got it fixed for $120. Good thing you had your iPhone.

The quality was so good that your client, a barber named Steve who has never paid for photography, couldnt tell the difference.

When your friend challenged you to take a night shot with your phone, you muttered, bring it on to yourself, then built an app because your company tells you to spend 10% of your time eating for free in the cafeteria. Then you composited 487 photos and used AI, AR, VR, ILC, and THC to get a photo that you couldve taken with your DSLR, which you didnt have because you tripped and broke your lens.

***

Ok, we get it. Medium format is bigger than full-frame. You did side-by-side tests, and you confirmed that the medium format is indeed more expensive than full-frame. But no more expensive than switching from Canon to Sony, which you did because you have big plans to shoot the pole vault at some point in the future.

***

Ok, we get it. Youre a digital native who tried film for the first time. Youre a big deal on Instagram, and boy, wait until your followers see #film. Surprised face emojis would be poppin, except you were shadowbanned because youre a big deal.

***

Ok, we get it. You have a system for taking photos that doesnt rely on the rule of thirds. It uses a hybrid of fractals, Fibonacci Numbers, and the golden ratio, which you overlay on all the great masterpieces to prove your theory.

Its the perfect compliment to your workflow and your LR presets that youre selling along t-shirts that have your logo.

***

Ok, we get it. Your eyes are much more sensitive than ours which is why you dont like the microcontrast on the new lens that everyone else loves, which is half the price of the other lens that everyone loves. Images look so flat to you, and we sure wish we had your visual acuity.

But man, if you think the microcontrast is bad, check out the bokeh. Its hard to believe how out of focus it looks. Bokeh, by the way, rhymes with poke, which is, like, cubes of fish from Hawaii.

Shikonin attenuated hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury by inhibiting apoptosis and autophagy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Mar 21 ;7:44785. Epub 2017 Mar 21. PMID: 28322249 Abstract Title:  The protective effects of shikonin on hepatic ischemia/reperfusion injury are mediated by the activation of the PI3K/Akt pathway. Abstract:  Hepatic ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury, which can result in severe liver injury and dysfunction, occurs in a variety of conditions such as liver transplantation, shock, and trauma. Cell death in hepatic I/R injury has been linked to apoptosis and autophagy. Shikonin plays a significant protective role in ischemia/reperfusion injury. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the protective effect of shikonin on hepatic I/R injury and explore the underlying mechanism. Mice were subjected to segmental (70%) hepatic warm ischemia to induce hepatic I/R injury. Two doses of shikonin (7.5 and 12.5mg/kg) were administered 2h before surgery. Balb/c mice were randomly divided into four groups: normal control, I/R, and shikonin preconditioning at two doses (7.5 and 12.5mg/kg). The serum and liver tissues were collected at three time points (3, 6, and 24h). Shikonin significantly reduced serum AST and ALT levels and improved pathological features. Shikonin affected the expression of Bcl-2, Bax, caspase 3, caspase 9, Beclin-1, and LC3, and upregulated PI3K and p-Akt compared with the levels in the I/R group. Shikonin attenuated hepatic I/R injury by inhibiting apoptosis and autophagy through a mechanism involving the activation of PI3K/Akt signaling.

6 Easy Campfire Desserts (No Pots or Pans Required) "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

As someone who loves camping, but has a busy schedule, I can usually only get away for a day or two at a time, and am thus always looking for ways to streamline my trips in order to make them more frequent and turnkey.

Campfire Desserts

Part of that is simplifying my grub; instead of having to haul pots and pans into the wild, and clean them after each meal, I cook my meals in foil packets or on a stick; no muss, no fuss, no clean up.

That works well for entrees, but what about the crown of the meal  the dessert? Smores are an obvious and delicious choice, but lately Ive found myself wanting to branch out more.

So we recently field-tested a bunch of easy, make-ahead campfire desserts, and found six absolute winners. These tasty treats require no pots, pans, or clean-up. Just put em in the fire, and enjoy.

If youre ready to add some variety to your smores routine, give these recipes a try on your next trip into the woods.

Notes on Preparation & Cooking

  • All of these recipes can be made ahead of time at home and brought with you to your destination.
  • The ideal place to cook nearly all campfire grub is not directly in the flames, but on a nice bed of coals (shoot for at least 2 inches of them).
  • When making something in a foil packet, always spray the surface on which youre going to place your food with cooking spray, so that the food doesnt stick once its cooked.
  • Use heavy-duty foil to avoid puncturing. I recommend using two sheets to be on the safe side, and because it seems to cut down on charring.
  • Measurements of ingredients are kept intentionally vague on most of these. I dont exactly measure the ingredients when making campfire grub. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that, and youre gold. Measure and season to taste.
  • Cook times are approximate as well; they can vary depending on how hot your coals are. Check on your food periodically to see how its doing; if its not done, crimp the foil back together and return the food to the coals. The packets will be hot, so us...

These results indicate that shikonin treatment may prevent the loss of vision associated with diabetic retinopathy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Mar 21 ;7:44985. Epub 2017 Mar 21. PMID: 28322323 Abstract Title:  Anti-inflammatory properties of shikonin contribute to improved early-stage diabetic retinopathy. Abstract:  Diabetic retinopathy (DR), a major microvascular complication of diabetes, leads to retinal vascular leakage, neuronal dysfunction, and apoptosis within the retina. In this study, we combined STZ with whole-body hypoxia (10% O2) for quicker induction of early-stage retinopathy in C57BL/6 mice. We also compared the effects of a high glucose condition combined with hypoxia (1% O2) to a low glucose condition by using retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, which are a crucial component of the outer blood-retinal barrier and the damage is related to retinopathy. In the retina of DM/hypoxic C57BL/6 mice, abnormal a-wave and b-wave activity, yellowish-white spots, hyperfluorescence, and reduced retinal thickness were found using electroretinography (ERG), fundus photography (FP), fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA), and optical coherence tomography (OCT). Shikonin dose-dependently (0.5-50mg/kg, per os) prevented DM/hypoxia-induced lesions. In eye tissue, administration of shikonin also attenuated DM/hypoxia-induced pre-apoptotic protein BAX expression as well as the production of inflammatory proteins cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). We also demonstrated that shikonin administration rescues high glucose/hypoxia (1% O2)-induced inflammation, decreased junction protein expression, and permeability in RPE cells. These results indicate that shikonin treatment may prevent the loss of vision associated with DR.

An Interview with Photographer Jeremy Cowart "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Jeremy Cowart has done it all: celebrity photographer, app creator, photo teacher, photo book author, lecturer, humanitarian and in the future maybe a hotel owner, where he envisions changing the world in your sleep.

Starting out as a painter, graphic designer and finally photographer Cowart has captured many a celebrity while continuing to live in Nashville, Tennessee, although he did reside in Los Angeles for a year and half. Over the last 12 years, photography has been a full-time calling. Cowart beat a Hollywood agent to a job, who eventually went on to sign him on and that was the start of a successful celebrity photography career.

Photography is his career, Cowart has also found inspiration from his humanitarian projects. His Voices of Haiti photo essay, for which he let the survivors of the earthquake write their own message on found rubble, ended up as a show at the UN, where a meeting assured a huge funding to the rebuilding effort. Haiti led to Rwanda, where the documentary portraits captured survivors of genocide standing shoulder to shoulder with the killers of their dear ones, who theyve now forgiven.

Cowart has also developed a photography app called OKDOTHIS and also started See University where he provides training on all aspects of photography.

We got a chance to catch up with the always on the move Jeremy Cowart to learn more about his life, photography, and projects.

Phil Mistry: Tell us how you got started in photography?

The Story Behind this Viral Photo of a French Policeman on Fire "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Photographer Zakaria Abdelkafis shocking photograph of a French anti-riot policeman set ablaze by a molotov cocktail has quickly spread to every corner of the world. And yesterday, only one day after Abdelkafi captured the photograph, he shared the story behind it.

The photograph was taken during a march for the annual May Day workers rally in Paris, and has since appeared on the covers of the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and countless online publications and European newspapers. In an article for his employer, Agence France-Presse, Abdelkafi said he had no idea what was about to happen.

I always follow [a group who hide their faces behind bandanas and hoodies] because, from past experience, I know they always cause trouble, he said. Theyre very violent.

His dedication to following this group around occasionally gets him pushed down and beaten by the very people hes trying to photograph. This time, he placed himself between them and CRS (Republican Security Companies) police, taking photographs as the protesters began throwing rocks, bottles, anything that they could get their hands on at the riot police.

Thats when a molotov cocktail went flying.

When they threw the Molotov cocktail, I didnt actually see it. I just saw the guy engulfed in flames and I just snapped away, he says. I kept on following the policeman who was burning. He was screaming, the officers around him were screaming, the scene was as horrific as you imagine it. He was a human being being burned alive in front of me, says Abdelkafi. And the demonstrators, they didnt care. They kept throwing things at the police.

Abdelkafi is no stranger to horrific sightsa Syrian refugee, he was forced to flee his country in 2015, ultimately receiving asylum in France and a job with AFP. He has witnessed truly horrific sights; this moment hit close to home.

Inhibition of pyruvate kinase M2 markedly reduces chemoresistance of advanced bladder cancer to cisplatin. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Apr 5 ;7:45983. Epub 2017 Apr 5. PMID: 28378811 Abstract Title:  Inhibition of Pyruvate Kinase M2 Markedly Reduces Chemoresistance of Advanced Bladder Cancer to Cisplatin. Abstract:  Chemoresistance to cisplatin is a principal cause of treatment failure and mortality of advanced bladder cancer (BC). The underlying mechanisms remain unclear, which hinders the development of preventive strategies. Recent data indicate that pyruvate kinase M2 (PKM2), a glycolytic enzyme for Warburg effect, is strongly upregulated in BC. This study explores the role of PKM2 in chemoresistance and whether inhibiting PKM2 augments the chemosensitivity to cisplatin and reduces BC growth and progression. We found that Shikonin binds PKM2 and inhibits BC cell survival in a dose-dependent but pyruvate kinase activity-independent manner. Down-regulation of PKM2 by shRNA blunts cellular responses to shikonin but enhances the responses to cisplatin. Shikonin and cisplatin together exhibit significantly greater inhibition of proliferation and apoptosis than when used alone. Induced cisplatin-resistance is strongly associated with PKM2 overexpression, and cisplatin-resistant cells respond sensitively to shikonin. In syngeneic mice, shikonin and cisplatin together, but not as single-agents, markedly reduces BC growth and metastasis. Based on these data, we conclude that PKM2 overexpression is a key mechanism of chemoresistance of advanced BC to cisplatin. Inhibition of PKM2 via RNAi or chemical inhibitors may be a highly effective approach to overcome chemoresistance and improve the outcome of advanced BC.

Science Validates Working Time Machine Model: Mathematically, It Is Possible "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Tell us something we dont already know mainstream science now reveals that traveling forward and backward in time is mathematically possible.

People think of time travel as something as fiction. And we tend to think its not possible because we dont actually do it, says theoretical physicist and mathematician, Ben Tippett, from the University of British Columbia in Canada. But, mathematically, it is possible.

The trick to using a real-life time-machine, they say, is to use the curvature of the spacetime continuum. This circular bend hypothetically allows for a person to skip into their future or into their past.

In a paper titled, Traversable acausal retrograde domains in spacetime, physicists Benjamin K Tippett and David K. Sang attempt to describe in laypersons terms, exactly how time travel works.

They state that a person, observing externally, from outside the box of a time-machine would be in a bubble of geometry which moves along a circular, acausal trajectory through spacetime.

They continue,

If certain timelike observers inside the bubble maintain a persistent acceleration, their worldlines will close. . .The inclusion of such a bubble in a spacetime will render the background spacetime non-orientable, generating additional consistency constraints for formulations of the initial value problem. The spacetime geometry is geodesically incomplete, contains naked singularities, and requires exotic matter.

There are many events which suggest time travel has been happening on our planet for some time (pun intended).

For example, there are recent bizarre claims based on passages from the Mahabhrata and Ramayana that some kind of highly advanced weapon resembling a nuclear bomb was set off in India twelve thousand years ago. Of course, there are two theories should you take this claim at face value that an ancient civilization visited earth and detonated the bomb, or that an advanced civilization with these weapons capabilities travelled back in time.

Major Changes Are Coming to Sell-by Food Labels "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Expiration dates, sell-by dates, best if used by dates Figuring out how long food is safe to eat is a confusing mess to the majority of Americans. But after 40 years of sniffing items in your fridge and Googling whether you can eat eggs that are a week past the date printed on the carton, the grocery industry is stepping in to clarify things. [1]

On 15 February 2017, the Food Marketing Institute and the Grocery Manufacturers Association, the two biggest trade groups for the grocery industry, announced theyd devised standardized, voluntary regulations to make clear what all of those dates actually mean.

Manufacturers currently use 10 separate label phrases including expires on and better if used by. However, going forward, manufacturers will be encouraged to use only one of two phrases: Use by and Best if Used by. [2]

Right now use by represents a manufacturers best guess of how long a product maintains peak flavor. But many Americans still view the label as an expiration date, and wont touch the product after the date on the packaging. Best if Used by will replace use by to hopefully make it clearer that this is only an indicator of quality, not an indicator of whether a product has gone bad. Most of the time, its perfectly fine to eat a food that is past its use by date.

One industry survey found that 91% of Americans have mistakenly tossed past-date food in the trash, when the label only indicates that the product might be past its peak quality. [1]

The Department of Agriculture and an alliance of environmental groups have been urging the grocery industry to clarify these labels. After all, tossing out a perfectly good product is akin to throwing a handful of dollars in the trash. More importantly, it contributes to the already massive problem of food waste, which clogs landfills and causes greenhouse gas emissions.

ReFED, which describes itself on its website as A data-driven guide for businesses, government, funders, and nonprofits to collectively reduce food waste at scale, estimates that the standardized date labeling could divert 398,000 tons of waste...

Friendly Giants Built From Recycled Wood Hidden in the Forests of Copenhagen "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Danish artist Thomas Dambo works on large-scale sculptures with recycled materials, having completed 25 wooden works around the world in just under three years. His latest project, The Six Forgotten Giants, is based in his hometown of Copenhagen, a project the builds and hides friendly giants throughout the citys forests. Using a treasure map, visitors can find the oversized creatures, each of which comes with a poem that describes a bit of their personality.

All of the giants are produced from recycled wood, material that was gathered by Dambo and his team from 600 pallets, a shed, an old fence, and various other sources. Using local volunteers to build the works, Dambo then names each sculpture after one of the builders, such as Teddy Friendly seen below.

Woman Discovers Note from Chinese prisoner in Purse Bought at Walmart "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A woman in Arizona said she made a stunning discovery inside a new purse she bought at a Walmart: A note apparently written by a desperate prisoner in China.

Laura Wallace found the message, written in Chinese, tucked inside the zipper compartment of the purse she purchased at a Sierra Vista Walmart, KVOA reported.

Wallace had a Chinese-speaking person translate the note to English. The letter read:

Inmates in the Yingshan Prison in Guangxi, China are working 14 hours daily with no break/rest at noon, continue working overtime until 12 midnight, and whoever doesnt finish his work will be beaten. Their meals are without oil and salt. Every month, the boss pays the inmate 2000 yuan, any additional dishes will be finished by the police. If the inmates are sick and need medicine, the cost will be deducted from the salary. Prison in China is unlike prison in America, horse cow goat pig dog (literally, means inhumane treatment).

Two other people translated the note to make sure the message was accurate, Wallace added.

Shikonin and temozolomide may constitute a powerful new tool for Glioblastoma treatment by reducing therapy resistance and tumor recurrence. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cell Oncol (Dordr). 2017 Apr 11. Epub 2017 Apr 11. PMID: 28401486 Abstract Title:  Dual treatment with shikonin and temozolomide reduces glioblastoma tumor growth, migration and glial-to-mesenchymal transition. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Glioblastomas (GBM) comprise 17% of all primary brain tumors. These tumors are extremely aggressive due to their infiltrative capacity and chemoresistance, with glial-to-mesenchymal transition (GMT) proteins playing a prominent role in tumor invasion. One compound that has recently been used to reduce the expression of these proteins is shikonin (SHK), a naphthoquinone with anti-tumor properties. Temozolomide (TMZ), the most commonly used chemotherapeutic agent in GBM treatment, has so far not been studied in combination with SHK. Here, we investigated the combined effects of these two drugs on the proliferation and motility of GBM-derived cells.METHODS: The cytotoxic and proliferative effects of SHK and TMZ on human GBM-derived cells were tested using 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT), Ki67 staining and BrdU incorporation assays. The migration capacities of these cells were evaluated using a scratch wound assay. The expression levels of3 integrin, metalloproteinases (MMPs) and GMT-associated proteins were determined by Western blotting and immunocytochemistry.RESULTS: We found that GBM-derived cells treated with a combination of SHK and TMZ showed decreases in their proliferation and migration capacities. These decreases were followed by the suppression of GMT through a reduction of3 integrin, MMP-2, MMP-9, Slug and vimentin expression via inactivation of PI3K/AKT signaling.CONCLUSION: From our results we conclude that dual treatment with SHK and TMZ may constitute a powerful new tool for GBM treatment by reducing therapy resistance and tumor recurrence.

A TESOL certification opens doors at home and abroad "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Christine Holder teaches online with Coursera for Business customer VIPKID, a platform that connects Chinese students aged 5 through 12 with English teachers in the U.S. and Canada. In 2016, VIPKID began sponsoring teachers like Christine to earn their Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Certificates through Arizona State Universitys TESOL Specializations on Coursera. The sponsorship opportunity, which allows teachers to earn a high-value professional certification at no personal cost, has been enormously popular with VIPKIDs teacher network. Heres what Christine told us about her Coursera experience:

Education and community in particular, international community have always been central to my career choices. Id love to work abroad, but as I have two young sons, thats not currently a practical option. When a family member introduced me to VIPKID, I was thrilled. The platform is such an innovative and creative idea. It truly makes the world smaller. Ive been teaching for almost a year now, and its been life-changing. Im invited into my students homes Ive met their families and pets, and shared their toys and friendship.

Im now enrolled in the TESOL program offered by VIPKID through Coursera, and my experiences with Coursera and Arizona State University have been effective in so many ways. Since enrolling in the program, Ive been steadily applying everything I learn to improve my teaching. Ive adjusted my teaching style to communicate better with students who speak very little English, and Ive adopted new strategies for lesson planning and time management.

My previous attempts at online learning have been a struggle, especially when trying to balance education with my career but Coursera has offered a smooth, flexible experience while still expecting dedication and diligence. Im actually glad that Im teaching while working toward my certification, since its allowed me to apply what Im learning on a daily basis.

Im excited about the new career opportunities that will open up to me once I am a certified TESOL instructor. Ultimately, Id love to teach in different countries. For the immediate future, though, I also see a need here in my own city (St. Louis, Missouri) to help refugees and immigrants who are seeking to learn English in order to get jobs or become U.S. citizens. And I definitely want to keep learning on Coursera Im already looking into other courses that might help me improve my teaching and advance my career.

Earbuds can translate any language into any language "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(Minds) The worlds first smart earpiece lets two people, speaking different languages, understand each other through translation.

Its the result of two years of R&D from Waverly Labs, a New York-based technology firm.

The current model seems to access a slight delay before relaying your partners words in a computerized voice, in your language.

Integrating this type of technology into smart phones and devices like earbuds is a huge step forward in bringing people closer together.

The earpiece is called Pilot and works together with the second earpiece through an app on your smart phone.  The starting price is said to be $299 for the set, though it is subject to change.  They are current accepting pre-orders on their website.

It may seem mildly crude, but this is a huge step in blending technologies together to create a great new one.

The Only 3 Reasons to Work for Free "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Working for free has a huge stigma attached to it, and for good reason. If you dont know how to work for free properly, you can be taken advantage of and devalue other photographers work in the process. Thats why there are, in my opinion, only 3 reasons to work for free.

When you work for free, you need to try and always put yourself in the best possible position to gain something from the work. Whether youre just putting new work in your portfolio or youre adding to your network, you need to realize that working for free can benefit you, especially early in your career.

Personal Projects

These are your own projects that you put together, and theyre the best work for free moments. You get the best work possible that fits your style when you do personal projects. Personal projects show off your style and skill more than anything else.

You have full control over everything because in the end these are specifically for you.

This photo was the result of a personal project. I wanted to do something huge that honored a culture and holiday I was fascinated with.

TFP/Trade For Print

These are collaborations between you, a model, and sometimes a makeup artist and/or a hair stylist. You get the point: Its not all about you, its about everyone as a group. Usually, these are standard shoots that fit everyones stylemore like content filler for your Instagram or your portfolio.

This is great, especially when you first start, because it helps you build a rapport with local creatives and gets your work out to everyone else through multiple people sharing it.

This was a TFP shoot I did with an agency model from Nashville. We had a lot of fun and it led to more portfolio-level work with her connections.

Actually Working for Free/Reduced Rates

These are the real gambles. You have to be really sure the work that comes from these can lead to either more paid work, or add significantly to your network. Regardless, you are pretty much being used in these situations.

Someone has an event or needs photos for something, and youre just there to fulfill the needs of the client. Why should you even bother?

So, words is important. Self-harm is a behaviour and more... "IndyWatch Feed Comics"



So, words is important. Self-harm is a behaviour and more importantly its a symptom of unthinkable distress and suffering. Regardless of intention, when you refer to anyone as a cutter or a 'self-harmer you have automatically reduced their whole being to a single act. Were not one homogeneous gang of teary-eyed razor-blade clutchin teens that only exist in black and white to a backing track of Joy Division. Dont perpetuate that stereotype. Self-harm is devastating. It affects millions of people, in different ways, for a myriad of reasons, across all intersections of society, but guys..lads..babes: it is not an identity!

Sex and love in and after college, a Q&A exchange "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Cross-posted at Center for Love and Sex.

The Director of Center for Love and Sex, Sari Cooper, had the wonderful idea of doing a Q&A exchange. I recently wrote a book about sex in college, American Hookup, and she works as a therapist with young people in their post-graduation romantic and sexual relationships. I was curious to hear about the issues that millennials are grappling with once they get out into the working world and begin to date, and she wanted to hear more about my research regarding the state of hookups on campus.  So, we swapped questions and agreed to cross-post our answers.

Sari Cooper interviews Lisa Wade 

Given that hookups have been criticized in the larger American culture and media for some time now, I thought I would begin our conversation on a constructive thread.  What have you found are positive emotional. psychological and physical outcomes/by products reported by young adults engaging in hookups during their college years? 

Most students arrive on campus eager to experiment with casual sexual contact, even if just a little. They see sexual activity as a natural part of being human, are increasingly tolerant of a wide range of sexual orientations, and largely reject the idea that its okay to judge sexually active women more harshly than men. Thanks to the womens movement, the sexual revolution, and gay liberation, the stigma of sexual activity has largely lifted.

In that environment, many young people enjoy first times first kisses, first blow jobs, first one night stands and honing new sexual skills. Many find it exciting to be participating in a part of life that is new to them (puberty was just a few years ago and 50% are virgins when they arrive on campus). Its pleasurable to indulge ones desires, to do new things, and to improve, no less with sex than with anything else in life.

Hookups offer these things to young people and, for a nontrivial minority of students, hookups are everything they want. For up to a quarter of students, hookups are incredibly gratifying. Research shows that students who claim to thrive in hookup culture really do: the more they hookup, the higher their self-esteem and sense of well-being.

What intersectionalities did you find in your research regarding status in terms of desirability with racial, gender and LGBTQ culture?  When research is done is it mostly skewed towards white, cisgender heterosexual sexual behaviors?

Students of color, women, and non-heterosexual students report more dissatisfaction with hookup culture and hoo...

Audio: A deep dive into the study of marine wildlife through bioacoustics "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

On this episode of the Mongabay Newscast, we speak with Leah Barclay, a sound artist, acoustic ecologist, and researcher with Griffith University in South East Queensland, Australia, for our latest Field Notes segment. Here at the Mongabay Newscast, were very interested in acoustic ecology, perhaps for obvious reasons: Acoustic ecology, sometimes known as ecoacoustics or soundscape studies, is the study of the relationship between human beings and the natural environment as mediated through bioacoustics, or the sounds that are produced by living organisms. In order to highlight the findings of this exciting line of research, weve created our ongoing Field Notes segment. In this particular Field Note, which takes up the entire episode, Leah Barclay plays for us several of her underwater recordings of marine wildlife and ecosystems. We met Leah at the Smithsonian's Earth Optimism Summit in Washington, D.C. a couple weekends ago, where she gave a great presentation about her work. We wanted to hear more of her thoughts on the field of bioacoustics, plus the new spectrogram app she's developing, and all the ways she uses her interactive soundscape art to get kids excited about engaging with nature. Leah also plays a number of recordings she's made of dolphins, humpback whales, the Great Barrier Reef and even what it sounds like to a humpback whale when a ship goes by.

Navajo President Begaye Approves $239,200 Grant Allocation to Benefit Disabled Navajos "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"


Published May 3, 2017

WINDOW ROCK On April 30, President Russell Begaye approved $239,200 for resolution no. CAP-22-17 as a one-time grant allocation to the non-profit organization, Din Bii Association for Disabled Citizens.

We appreciate other entities on the Navajo Nation that provide services to our disabled citizens across the Navajo Nation. This is just one of the non-profit organizations providing these services to disabled adults, said President Begaye.

The Din Bii Association for Disabled Citizens currently receives recurring allocations from the Navajo Nation Department of Health through P.L. 93-638 funding in the amount of $370,895. They also receive funding from the Arizona Department of Economic Security in the amount of $2.2 million.   We allocate this one-time grant for the Din Bii Association for Disabled Citizens. They will have the capability to advocate for additional funding and grants from across the United States, said President Begaye.

The funding granted to this non-profit organization was provided by the Undesignated, Unreserved Fund Balance. This one-time grant will provide the non-profit organization funds for meals, medical supplies, travel for doctor appointments, and rental fees for their current location.

The Din Bii Association for Disabled Citizens, based in Tuba City, Ariz., provides essential services and residential services for individuals with special needs. I approved funding for this non-profit for only essential services and needs. At this time, we must be frugal and I want to thank the Navajo Nation Council for withdrawing seven UUFB legislations to address the upcoming budget shortfall for the nation, said President Begaye.

PORTLAND, OREGON Pendleton Woolen Mills, the acclaimed- lifestyle brand headquartered in Portland, Oregon, introduces a new, exclusive blanket for 2017, Gift of the Earth, to benefit the American Indian College Fund.  For more than 25 years the College Fund has supported access to higher education for Native American students.

Gift of the Earth is a collaborative effort between Pendleton, the College Fund and creative partner Wieden+Kennedy, honoring the rich storytelling, history and culture of the Hopi tribe of the American Southwest.

The blanket tells of the Hopi nation and their sacred relationship with the ancient caretaker of the earth, Maasaw, and the respect of every gift given to them. says designer Patty Orlando of creative agency Wieden+Kennedy.  The clay they and their ancestors have sourced from the land for centuries is treated with the utmost regard.  Because of this, the Hopi people maintain a beautiful and unique pottery tradition on the mesas in Arizona.  Craftsmanship and creativity drawn from generations of knowledge flow through the potters today as they work.  Gift of the Earth draws on the design elements from these brilliant pieces as a testament to learning from the past while moving into the future.

Port Angeles Council vote puts second-class city, fluoride questions on ballot "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PORT ANGELES The Port Angeles City Council approved a Nov. 7 general election ballot resolution Tuesday which would ask voters to revert city government to the second-class city designation it held before 1971 and would mandate new elections for City Council members.

The vote on the resolution, proposed by the anti-fluoridation group Our Water, Our Choice!, was 4-1 with Mayor Patrick Downie and council members Lee Whetham, Cherie Kidd and Sissi Bruch in favor, Brad Collins opposed, and Dan Gase and Michael Merideth absent.

Those who voted in favor of the resolution opposed the change in government but said they felt obligated to follow the will of ballot petitioners who sought the change and who submitted an overwhelming number of names to accomplish it.

Proponents have said the measure would make the City Council more responsive to citizens and foster more comments , while opponents have said citizens would lose home-rule powers including the right to organize citizen ballot initiatives.

Council members also unanimously approved an advisory ballot asking voters if the city should resume fluoridation of the citys water supply, which was stopped Aug. 3 pending the results of the advisory ballot.

Mays U-turns appeals to voters who keep changing their mind "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Opinion polls are showing Prime Minister Theresa Mays policy of saying shes going to do one thing and then doing the exact opposite is attracting support from indecisive members of the electorate. Those who cant decide who to vote for appear to be more aligned with a dithering kindred spirit like Mrs May than Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn who, as a man of principle, refuses to change his mind on anything, even when hes wrong. Or, in fact, when Diane Abbott is wrong.

Wavering voters are clearly identifying with a woman who said there wouldnt be a snap election, then called one. Look at her record, said one floating voter, she said vote remain, then called Brexit. She backed National Insurance increases, then withdrew them. If I could decide on a leader, it would be her. Probably, let me think.

Other fickle voters are starting to identify with the Prime Minister as one of their own.  One such voter explained, Weve always had two-faced politicians, but Im in two minds to vote for her.

Between Julia and I we have a pretty hefty book collection, so weve been focusing on devoting space to our favorites in our dining room, where we had a full room of built-in shelves installed. Ive been spending more time in our little home library, so it got me thinking about some of my favorite home libraries weve shared here at Design*Sponge. From small under-stairs shelving to grand, floor-to-ceiling storage (with rolling library ladders!), these spaces remind me that I can devote as much of my love and my space to print as I can to digital. I hope these libraries will inspire you as much as they have me, either to redecorate or just grab your favorite book and revisit it for a while. xo, grace

Listen to a Rare Recording of an Eyewitness Account of Lincolns Assassination "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Phonograph record of Joseph H. Hazeltons account of Abraham Lincolns assassination from 1933 (image courtesy The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens)

Conspiracy theories surrounding Abraham Lincolns death abound to this day, just as hearsay filled newspapers the morning after the 16th presidents assassination on April 14, 1865. Among those in Fords Theater who actually saw the chaos unfold was one Joseph H. Hazelton, a stage and film actor who was working as a program boy. In 1933, by which time he was the only living witness to the event, Hazelton gave a detailed account of what he had seen at the May Companys Exposition Hall in Los Angeles. The only remaining recording of his speech and likely the only eyewitness account of that night is preserved at the Huntington Library, which, 152 years later to the day, has highlighted the rare treasure in an engaging video, in which you can hear a portion of Hazeltons dramatic report and watch it come to life.

Created by the institutions video producer Aric Allen, the eight-minute clip highlights the history of the 16-inch phonograph record.

Kill Almost Any Infection: DIY Natural Antibiotic Remedy "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Pharmaceutical antibiotics werent always around. Whatever did we do before companies like Roche, Merck, and Pfizer started making super-bug-creating, liver-damaging medications that also robbed us of our own innate immunity?

People used natural antibiotics that not only promote good bacteria in the intestinal tract, considered vital for a good immune system, but also made use of  inexpensive ingredients that are antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial, and inflammation reducing.

In brief, we made our own remedies from natures pharmacopeia.

A DIY antibiotic remedy can be more effective than pharmaceutical drugs and less damaging to the liver.

A DIY antibiotic remedy can be more effective than pharmaceutical drugs and less damaging to the liver.

If you drink the DIY antibiotic stuff I am about to tell you about on a regular basis, theres almost no infection that can touch you. Heres what the ten simple ingredients within it can do for you:

  • It contains ACV (Apple Cider Vinegar) known to kill bacteria due to the presence of acetic acid. The unprocessed, unfiltered, organic versions (like Braggs) also contain a strand of proteins, enzymes, and friendly bacteria called the mother which makes its beneficial biological effects even more potent.
  • It contains garlic, one of the oldest known antiviral and antibacterial substances available to humankind. Garlic, part of the allium family, contains allicin, a potent compound which kills infections on contact. Garlic also contains sulfur and selenium compounds which boost the immune system. Garlic is so potent, it is even chemoprotective, meaning it can kill cancerous cells.
  • It contains onion. Raw, organic onion, also part of the allium family, has been used for over 5000 years to help treat and prevent disease. Companion cropping tomatoes with onions is even used in permaculture because it helps tomato plants fight diseases better....

19th Century Devils Bridge Uses Its Reflection to Form a Perfect Circle "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Bridge Photography

Photo credit: Not a Nomad blog

At first glance, it looks as though nature has created a perfect circle that frames the gorgeous landscape of Germany's Kromlauer Park. But look a little longer and you'll realize that this stunning sight is the result of a clever optical illusion. An arched bridge called Rakotzbrcke, or devils bridge, is responsible for fooling your eye.

Rakotzbrcke was commissioned by a knight of  Kromlau and completed in 1860. The rustic and natural-looking circle bridge was constructed using different types of stone with pointed rock spires that punctuate either end. It was specifically designed with the optical illusion in mind.

So, why is the Rakotzbrcke called devil's bridge? Theres nothing inherently evil about it, but this nickname speaks to its awe-inspiring form. The folklore term was given to any bridgebut primarily ancient onesthat showcased a great achievement in engineeringso magnificent, in fact, that it mustve been created by the devil rather than a mere mortal.

With its fantastic panoramic views, Rakotzbrcke is a popular place for bridge photography. You too can visit this locale, but beware: walking on this bridge is prohibited in order to preserve it for generations to come.

Vaccine Producer Mercks President Led Secret Biowarfare Program, Influencing Experiments on Americans "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Merck & Co. is the worlds largest vaccine manufacturing corporation, and is one of the largest pharma companies in the world. They created such things as the MMR vaccine, and the HPV vaccine Gardasil.

As a corporation that has affected the lives of almost everyone around us in the Western world, with most people receiving their vaccinations that are known to do damage, we should know their history.

In this article, we will examine Mercks connection to biological warfare, and the implications of that connection.

Merck & Co. is not to be confused with the German Merck KGaA, but they both originate from the original German Merck.

Merck was founded in 1668, in Germany.

By 1887, a US division of Merck called Merck & Co. was set up in New York by George Merck. George Merck moved to NY in 1891.

In April 1917, as the US entered the Great War (WWI), the government announced the seizure of corporations affiliated with Germany.

Merck & Co. was seized, but George Merck and partners founded a McKenna Corporation to bid on Merck as it was put up for auction, and they managed to buy Merck back in 1919, fully separating from the other Merck in Germany (as far as we know).

From that point, Merck made efforts to stay boldly on the side of the American war effort, and perhaps that influenced their involvement with the US biological warfare program during the peak of World War II.

In 1925, the same year Nazi chemical monopoly IG Farben was created, George Merck passed his company onto his son, George W. Merck.

George W. Merck grew up in a privileged position, using the workshop of Thomas Edison as a child and inheriting his position as the president of the company.

He would become Mercks president for 25 years, all throughout World War II: and he was given a central leadership position in the US biological warfare program during the same years he led Merck, retiring from the company years after his alleged retirement from biowarfare.

It was George W. Merck who led biological warfare work as the head of the...

New Study: Trappist-1 Likely Has Alien Life Seeded on Multiple Planets "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Disclosure becomes ever more interesting. NASA just announced their discovery of seven habitable planets circulating around a single star within the Trappist-1 solar system, found by astronomers to be relatively near our own. NASA stated that 3 of the 7 planets were likely targets for the search for alien life, but now, a new study published in Astrophysical Journal Letters is suggesting that all seven planets could be seeding each other with alien life that is likely very similar to the life-forms we see here on earth.

Artist's Rendering of a Trappist-1 Planet

Artists Rendering of a Trappist-1 Planet

Sebastiaan Krijt and his colleagues from the University of Chicago say that material transfer in the form of asteroid or comet dust could easily carry one type of life from one planet to another.

The concept is called litho-transpermia. It is a sub-category of a hypothesis that life was carried all over the Universe from seeds. The concept of directed panspermia differs slightly in that it suggests an advanced alien civilization could have intentionally spread the seeds of life from Earth to other planets, or vice versa.

The litho-transpermia phenomenon suggests that the magnitude of life-transfer between planets in Trappist-1 could happen 4 to 5 times faster than it does in our own.

Rwanda welcomes 20 black rhinos to Akagera National Park "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

Twenty rhinos are moving to a new home in Rwanda from South Africa over the next two weeks. The reintroduction will bring the eastern black rhinos (Diceros bicornis michaeli), a subspecies of the IUCN-listed Critically Endangered black rhinoceros (Diceros bicornis), back to the savannas of Akagera National Park in the eastern part of the African country. There are around 1,000 eastern black rhinos left, according to African Parks, most of which live in Kenya. [caption id="attachment_195340" align="aligncenter" width="768"] A female black rhino in East Africa. Photo by Rhett A. Butler[/caption] The rhinos return to this country is a testament to Rwandas extraordinary commitment to conservation and is another milestone in the restoration of Akageras natural diversity, said Peter Fearnhead, the CEO of the nonprofit organization African Parks, in a statement. African Parks manages 10 parks in cooperation with seven countries on the continent. Fewer than 4,900 black rhinos of all subspecies are thought to roam Africas plains today, according to IUCN data from 2010. Thats only about 10 percent of what numbers were just a few decades ago. Black rhinos, and their Near-Threatened cousin, the white rhino (Ceratotherium simum), have been hit hard by poachers eager to harvest their valuable horns.

These Islands Just Banned Western Junk Food to Promote Health "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Local tourist hot spots in some South Pacific Islands will no longer serve pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, and sugary sweets in plastic wrap typical Western junk food to encourage healthier eating habits among people who live there. The government hopes that banning junk food will also sway people to support local farmers and stop feeding the coffers of American junk food companies.

Torba in Vanuata (spread out over about 13 islands) has a population of about 10,000 people, many of whom are farmers, but tourist spots have been providing both locals and tourists in the area convenience foods instead of the fruits and vegetables that are grown locally. Obesity rates in the Pacific Islands have been sky-rocketing as well, causing an additional financial burden.

To combat this effect, tourist bungalows and city meetings alike will now serve fresh limes and coconuts, seafood, and other local, healthy delicacies.

Taro Baskets

We want to ban all other junk food from this province, Luke Dini, a city councils chairman said.

The province only gets about a 1,000 tourists a year, mostly Europeans, but the current food choices are ruining local health. Vanuata is also only one area in the Pacific that is affected. There are about 10 million people throughout the Pacific, and the rates of diabetes and obesity are becoming absurd. The area simply cant afford dialysis machines, and other treatments for the growing epidemic.

Imagine if 75 million Americans had diabetes thats the scale of the epidemic were talking about in Vanuatu, commented Roger Magnusson, a professor of health law and governance at Sydney Law School in Australia.

Experts say that the rising obesity rates in the Pacific Islands are primarily due to a shift away from the cultures typical diet of root crops, toward sugary high-calorie foods instead.  This has happened in almost every culture that shifts toward the Standard American Diet. Even in planes where people often live past 100, the newer generations who consume a diet more like Americans are dying younger, and getting sick sooner.

Pollution Linked with Higher Risk for Breast Cancer Precursor "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A new study shows that women who live in heavily polluted areas may be more likely to have dense breasts, which is a known risk factor for breast cancer. [1]

The study, published in Breast Cancer Research, finds that the chance of having dense breasts rose by 4% for every 1-unit increase in fine particle concentration. (Pollution is measured by the levels of fine particles in the atmosphere.) [2]

Lead researcher Dr. Lusine Yaghjyan says:

We found a positive association between fine particle concentration exposure and breast density but an inverse association between ozone exposure and breast density. This is an intriguing result that warrants further investigation to unpick any possible biological mechanism that might cause ozone exposure to reduce a womans chance of having dense breasts. [1]

Dense breasts have less fatty tissue and more non-fatty tissue than normal breasts. They also tend to have more gland tissues that drain milk, and are up to six times more likely to develop cancer.

Dense breasts have always been considered hereditary, but the new study suggests they may due to environmental factors. Additionally, mammograms have a harder time spotting potentially cancerous areas in dense breasts, increasing the likelihood that cancer may go undetected.

Source: Susan G. Komen

Yaghjyan says:

Breast density is a well-established and strong breast cancer risk factor so future studies are warranted to determine if the observed associations are causal, which if confirmed may have implications for risk prevention. [2]

For the study, researchers looked at nearly 280,000 women in the U.S. with an average age of 57. The participants were all taking part in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium from 2001 to 2009. Six in 10 of the women studied lived...

Congress Agrees To Give Jeff Sessions $0 To Wage War On Medical Marijuana "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The war on drugs is such an abysmal failure that even the lawmakers who have funded it for decades are drawing a line in the sand. Multiple bills in Congress have cropped up in recent months aiming to protect medical marijuana and reschedule cannabis, if not legalize it altogether.

The most recent development comes in the form of Congress recently unveiled budget, which allots exactly zero dollars to the Department of Justice to wage medical marijuana crackdowns across the country.

The Rohrabacher-Farr amendment allows states to carry on with crafting their own medical marijuana policies without fear of federal intervention, the Huffington Post reported.

The full text of the amendment to the budget bill reads as follows:

None of the funds made available in this Act to the Department of Justice may be used, with respect to any of the States of Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming, or with respect to the District of Columbia, Guam, or Puerto Rico, to prevent any of them from implementing their own laws that authorize the use, distribution, possession, or cultivation of medical marijuana.

Use By Food Dates Are Responsible For Billions In Food Waste "IndyWatch Feed Health"

food waste

By Karen Foster

Norbert Wilson who joined the Friedman School as a professor of food policy, has been investigating food waste, building on his past research on food choice, domestic hunger, food banking and the international trade of food products. What motivates people to spend good money on food they dont intend to eat?

According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, a staggering 1.3 billion tons is lost or wasted every year.

The impact of food waste is not just financial. Environmentally, food waste leads to an exagerrated use of chemicals such as fertilizers and pesticides; more fuel used for transportation; and more rotting food.

When Wilson turned his attention to issues related to food waste, he theorized that consumers buy food even when theyre aware they may not finish it. Its a concept that anyone who has purchased a container of sour cream can understandwe buy it knowing we may toss the container with a hefty portion still clinging to the sides.

Wilson found a clue in 2013, when the Natural Resources Defense Council released a report showing that a substantial portion of Americas $160 billion food-waste problem could be traced to those use by and sell by dates on food containers. It turns out that many consumers, worried that food that has passed the date on its packaging is no longer worth eating, throw out plenty of perfectly good stuff. Could consumers be thinking about those labels as they buy the food?

And its definitely working to their advantage. You see, Facebook charges advertisers for every single impression that their ad receives. So even if you are mindlessly scrolling through your feed 10 times a day, not even clicking on anything, you are still helping Facebook mint money.

Well, great deal for them. But why am I talking about it?

Pulitzer Prize-winning and manic-depressive poet Robert Lowell was fond of fire-related imagery: this night, this night, I elfin, I stonefoot, / walking the wildfire, he writes in the poem Long Summer. Fire will be the first absolute power, it will be the last to rule. I am burning in my own fire, Prometheus utters in his translation of Aeschyluss Prometheus Bound. What is perhaps Lowells most memorable mention of the element is found in the personal poem Reading Myself, that goes I took just pride and more than just/ struck matches that brought my blood to a boil/ I memorized the tricks to set the river on fire.

It was thus quite fitting for clinical psychologist Kay Redfield Jamison, professor at Johns Hopkins University, to title her psychological account of Lowell, Robert Lowell, Setting the River on Fire: A Study of Genius, Mania, and Character, recently published by Knopf. In it, she details his lifelong mental illness, and tries to establish how he coped with it and how his psychopathology shaped his poetic output. The link between mental illness and creative output, as a topic, is both delicate and controversial. At its worst, the compari...

Paper Suggests Our Solar System Could Have Hosted an Advanced Intelligent Civilization in the Past "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There are many intriguing theories on the possibility that advanced civilizations existed in the prehistoric times on our planet and beyond.

There are even claims that human race could have been created by such an advanced alien civilization, just like in the movie Prometheus. While these kinds of theories usually come from spiritually minded people and conspiracy theorists, sometimes we also see open-minded scientists who believe that something like this could be possible.

Thus, Jason Wright, astronomer at Penn State University, published a paper on 24 April, in which he explores the idea that an advanced civilization could have lived in our solar system long before the formation of life on our planet. He uses the term indigenous technological species, implying that the civilization originated in our solar system and not elsewhere in the universe.

Wright states that if his hypothesis is correct, then there must be so-called technosignatures, or the traces of an ancient civilizations technology, which are not as prone to degradation as organic material. He writes that such traces could have been buried under the surface of Earth and our planetary neighbors, such as Venus or Mars. The astronomer also believes that we may have already found geological evidence that contained technosignatures, but they were mistaken for natural phenomena.

When could the advanced ancient civilization have lived and died?

According to Wright, the most likely period when the civilization disappeared is the Cambrian period. This is when complex lifeforms appeared and became common, which could have resulted from a cosmic disaster that destroyed the early species and thus forced the biosphere to form new species of living organisms. Something similar has already happened in the history of Earth (the extinction of dinosaurs, remember?), and the advanced civilization could have been wiped out as a result of an asteroid impact or a deadly burst of gamma rays, Wright suggests.

If something like this took place, the traces of the advanced civilization and its technology could have been erased by the geological processes on our planet.

Beyond Earth

As for our planetary neighbors, it is already scientifically confirmed that liquid water once existed on Mars. It means that the Red Planet may have had the conditions suitable for life and could have hosted living organisms...

100% Fruit Juice: A Healthy Drink for Kids, or Liquid Candy? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A new study published in the journal Pediatrics suggests that drinking one serving a day of 100% fruit juice is linked to a slight weight gain in children age 6 or younger, but no weight gain in children age 7 or older. [1]

Health experts and nutritionists have been concerned that the content of naturally-occurring sugars in fruit juices can cause obesity and other health problems in youngsters.

In order to make 8 ounces of orange juice, for example, 4 to 5 medium oranges are needed; and each orange contains about 9 grams of sugar. The American Heart Association says that children and teens should consume no more than 8 ounces of sugary beverages a week. [1] [4]

Read: Healthful Fruit Juice May Have More Sugar than Soda

Dr. Brandon Auerbach, a primary care physician and instructor at the University of Washingtons Division of General Internal Medicine in Seattle, says:

I think caution is definitely in order and that when possible, parents should give whole fruit to kids, instead of fruit juice.

I share the concern that 100% fruit juices have a lot of sugar, even though its naturally occurring sugar. There are other health concerns about drinking 100% fruit juice, besides weight gain, especially related to risk of cavities and risk of future metabolic syndrome or diabetes. [1]

The Study

The study was a systemic review and meta-analysis of 8 previous observational studies on 100% fruit juice consumption and weight gain among children, based on their body mass indexes (BMIs).

Among children ages 1 to 6, consumption of one daily serving of 100% fruit juice was associated with 0.3 pounds of weight gain or less over on year. In kids age 7 and older, the juice consumption was not associated with any weight gain.

Dr. Dean Schillinger, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, who was not involved in the study, says:

While the amount of annual weight gain may be small ...

Debbie--have you seen RUN FOR YOUR LIFE by Trevor Kew? "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

This morning (May 3, 2017) I learned about Run for your Life by Trevor Kew, due out from Lorimer on August 1 of this year. I did a series of tweets about it. I'm pasting them here (I don't know how to remove the gray background from 2-15).

1) Due out sometime this year is a book that's making me go oh-oh. Set in Canada, the story is abt a kid whose dad was a refugee from Iran.

2) The kid is a runner. Rather than help with a fundraiser for First Nations displaced by a fire, he'd rather train for a big race.

3) When he's wiped out, he gains what he needs to keep going by imagining he is being chased by bloodthirsty savage Indians w tomahawks.

4) Training session over, he's catching his breath at a park. Someone asks him if he's ok. That someone is... a First Nations teen.

5) The First Nations teen is named Jason. He asks Chris (the runner) if someone was chasing him.

6) Chris knew it was not ok to imagine being chased by blood thirsty savage Indians. Jason's question, then, is awkward.

7) Chris realizes Jason is one of the FN people who is displaced by a fire. Turns out, Jason is also a runner....

Monk Fruit Magical Fruit With Many Health Benefits "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Health Tips

Monk fruit also known as Luo Han Guo, Buddha fruit, the Lohan or Arhat fruit is a sweet fruit and its healing properties are known for centuries. The fruit grows on a vine and it was named after Buddhist practitioners, called luohan. Thanks to its high antioxidant levels monk fruit has long been considered as the longevity fruit. Throughout the centuries, along for its magical sweetening powers, it was also used medicinally as a cough remedy, expectorant, and for help with other respiratory diseases.

Organic Monk fruit supports the immune system, respiratory system, digestive tract, and glands.

This fruit contains compounds that are naturally sweeter than the cane sugar by 300400 times. The best thing is that it has no effect on blood sugar and no calories.

In fact, its extract has a powerful effect on diabetes. It can decrease blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol, and improve liver function. In addition, it increased the good cholesterol HDL while protecting the antioxidants in the liver.


Monk Fruit Nutrition Facts

Monk fruit is not like most fruits. Its sweetness is due to its high content of powerful antioxidants called mogrosides. They have very sweet taste, and body metabolizes them differently than natural sugars. Thats why these fruits have no effect on blood sugar and contain no calories.

Essential Oils and Brain Injuries. The Truth We're Not Being Told... "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Organic & Healthy

I bet you dont know that our sense of smell is linked to the limbic areas of the brain, which is the emotional control center?

It essentially means that when essential oils are inhaled, they travel to the brain. Our other 4 senses (sight, taste, hearing and touch) are linked to the thalamus before reaching certain areas of the brain. The limbic system controls parts of our brains that regulate heart rate, breathing, stress levels, memory, blood pressure, hormone balance and stress levels.

Thought this, Essential oils can have tremendous psychological and physiological effects on the limbic system.


Each essential oil has its own therapeutic calming, sedative, balancing properties. When we inhale an essential oil, its particles travel through the nasal passage to a receptor neuron that transports it to the limbic brain, especially the hypothalamus.

The ability of essential oils to target your limbic center makes them a powerful tool in treating many health issues. When inhaled through the nose, essential oils stimulate tiny nerves that transmit a signal to the brain, and then begin to work on systems that regulate our body and mind. Inhalation through the nasal pathway leads to instant effects as it is the quickest route to the brain.

I Was Afraid I Would Give Birth In The Car. Then It Happened "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Ever since my son was born two years ago, Ive feared having a baby in the car. Perhaps its a weird fearbut when your child is born in 90 minutes, its not an entirely irrational one either. Thankfully, I was already at the hospital when labor started with my second. This time around, I wasnt so lucky.

During the last few months of my third pregnancy, I mentioned my fear of having a baby in the car at every midwife appointment. My midwives deliver out of a hospital and unfortunately, its 35 minutes away (not during rush hour traffic).

To alleviate my fears, my midwives told me to come as soon as I thought I was in labor, even if I wasnt sure. They also gave me a due-date appointment prep session on what to do if I did end up having our baby in the car, to help me feel more prepared. That appointment turned out to be a saving grace.

This Pregnancy, The False Labor Scares Kept Coming

On the morning of Thursday, April 27th, we left for the hospital. We thought this was the day. My husband Seth stayed home from work; we asked friends and family to cover childcare for our oldest two.

But as we drove south on the highway, my contractions began to dissipate. Since the prior Saturday, this had already happened four times: I would be in labor and suddenly, the regular and strong contractions would just taper off. My midwives called while we were en route, and asked if things were progressing. If not, they asked if we could head to the office instead, because the hospital was running out of rooms.

At the office, they told us what we already suspected: it was another false labor scare. Headed home, I felt incredibly foolish for being mistaken about labor so many times this pregnancy. I shouldve been a pro by now.

That night, contractions started again. I was on my bathroom floor moaning at bedtime, and Seth put the kids to bed. After the babysitter arrived, we headed to the hospital. Everyone thought this was truly it: my midwives, doula, and Seth. But I wasnt so sure. My contractions were regular and moving on top of each other, but I was still able to talk through every single one. I knew what labor felt like. Joking and talking mid-contractions wasnt it.

At almost 2 a.m., my midwife finally agreed with me. She suggested I head home, which I happily agreed to. I had been in this twilight labor for close to a week already, and didnt want to keep everyone on the clock unnecessarily. We arrived home at 3 a.m., and sent our tired and confused babysitter home.

An Hour Later, I Was Giving Birth

Seth went to sleep, but I spent the whole night working through annoying but manageable contractions. At 6 a.m., they became uncomfortable enough that I took a shower, where they tapered off again. I crawled back into bed,...

The Hidden Food Ingredient Linked to Pain and Inflammation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Michelle Schoffro Cook; Care2

Theres a food additive so ubiquitous in the food industry it is found in most packaged foods, restaurant sauces and even many foods that have been certified organic. That ingredient is carrageenan. While the additive starts out harmless enough (it comes from the seaweed known as Irish moss) it is then processed to extract the ingredient known as carrageenan, which acts as a thickener or emulsifier for many prepared foods.

Like most people, I originally thought that carrageenan was a harmless extract from seaweed, so I didnt give it much consideration. Then I heard that researchers were giving animals carrageenan to induce pain and inflammation as a way to prepare the animals for scientific studies exploring anti-pain drugs. That was the first Id heard of carrageenan being used for harm. So I began to investigate.


Dr. Joanne Tobacman has conducted many studies on the effects of carrageenan consumption, including one in the Journal of Diabetes Research. After eating carrageenan for only six days, animals fed carrageenan developed glucose intolerance, an umbrella term used to describe impaired metabolism involving excessively high blood sugar levels. Dr. Tobacman found that the food additive caused blood sugar levels to skyrocket, indicating that it may lead to the development of diabetes. She indicates that carrageenan used in animals diets so commonly cause diabetes that the additive could be used for mouse models of the study of diabetes.

Unwin suggests to his patients with type 2 diabetes or who want to lose weight that they do the opposite of what official health advice recommends. He advises them to stop counting calories, eat high-fat foods -- including saturated fats -- and avoid carbohydrates, namely sugar and starch. Telling people to avoid sugar is uncontroversial; the rest is medical heresy.

I Just Want Us to Be On

 

I dont get the affections people grow for each other. 

                                    EP

 

Small lies change the brains architecture making way for lyric verse,

For people prepared to deny the need for the best we could do.

 

I become angry, move the anger into obscure deposits

And express its excess as the opposite of generosity.

I break into points and walk.

 

It makes some sense to forget everything in advance.

 

Work, work, blue fear, hot reactive materials.

In the beyond-black of smoke, the brains ball lightning.

 

If in a situation of regret, you let your anger become the laws terrible machine.

If in a situation of conflict, you work out.

 

When I tell you Im not angry, you dont believe me. When youre angry, you tell me you love me.

But we live in anger like the law. How do you love me if you dont believe me?

 

If in a situation of conflict, you let your anger become the law.

If you regret, you work.

 

Im always sorry for what I fail to consider. But the audience...

Abbott Numbers set to revolutionise mathematics "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

So-called imaginary numbers based on the square root of a negative number were considered an oddity for many years until they proved their worth in electronic and electrical engineering, said mathematician Jonathan Hughes. We think the Abbott Numbers might prove equally valuable, though, as yet, we dont have a practical application for them.

Abbott Numbers are whole numbers which, when divided, might go up rather than down. They also float, or vary their magnitude, on a random basis.

Floating is really difficult to explain to a layperson, said Dr Hughes. Imagine youre paid thirty thousand a year, but some years this is just six pounds, while on other years you receive a billion pounds and a mountain of gold. Thats Abbott Numbers. Except they wouldnt vary annually, but on a much faster cycle during a conversation, for example.

There have been suggestions that the Abbott numbers might prove useful in public sector accounting, but most mathematicians regard the idea as absurd.
