An Ever-Changing Abode Built for Entertaining "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

An Ever-Changing Abode Built for Entertaining, Design*Sponge

Software consultant and owner of Salt & Honey Baking Company, Susie Brown and her husband Scott, a producer, are an imaginative couple. That being said, its unsurprising that this creative spirit of theirs frequently pushes them to seek out projects that keep their minds racing and their hands busy. Over the years this has not only helped them succeed in their many ventures, but its kept their home outside Cleveland, OH on its toes. Its an entertainers paradise that never seems to look the same two days in a row.

It looks great today, but Susie and Scott tell us this paradise wasnt always so enviable. When they moved in, outdated furnishings in brown and cream and a less-than-ideal kitchen greeted them. As the hosts of the familys Christmas Eve get-togethers as well as countless friend and family dinners, this simply wouldnt do. To make it more presentable for all occasions, the pair rolled up their sleeves and retiled, rewired, moved cabinetry around, and repainted the space. Without a doubt the kitchen is unrecognizable, but the room that got the most remarkable makeover has to be the bathroom. Originally it was doused in tan-colored everything, and ancient fixtures were the name of the game. Nowadays though, thanks to Susies stellar taste, its absolutely one of a kind. The homes original forest green wallpaper is covered in hand-painted flowers and a cabinet in the same hue matches perfectly. All in all, its aces in my book.

While they frequently share their home with friends and family, Susie and Scott hope that one day theyll get to enjoy their colorful space alongside a bouncing baby. Until that wish comes true, they will be right here in Ohio pinching themselves on the daily. Surely this is all a dream, they tell one another. Yep. They love their home that much, and we do too. Enjoy! Garrett

Fridge Makeover Hacks to Cut Food Waste INFOGRAPH "IndyWatch Feed Health"


Remember your parents telling you to eat your food because there were children starving in India or Africa? And maybe you offered to ship the uneaten food to them as a win-win. But as adults we realize that uneaten produce is just a waste of food and hard-earned income.

Did you know that 40% of food in the US is going uneaten each year? From the farm to the fridge to the fork, and finally on to the landfill, only about 60% of food is being consumed. In America, the average family is throwing out about 25% of the food they purchase. This is thought be caused by an undervaluing of food, due to its bounty and relative cheapness. Americans are only spending about 7% of their income on food, which is very low compared to other nations. Western Europeans spend an average of 13% of their income on food, and many African nations are spending north of 40%.

Aside from changing how we look at food, there are simpler ways we can cut down on waste. We can definitely reduce our waste by ensuring that our refrigerators run efficiently, and that we store foods in the correct sections of the fridge. Did you know that some areas of your fridge are cooler? Keeping food products that spoil easily in one of the cooler areas can extend the lifespan of your groceries. Also, many fridges have ethylene gas emitters that help keep produce from rotting.

The Ambiguity of Pressing the Shutter Ethics in Photojournalism "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

The myth goes that Crazy Horse refused to be photographed, believing the image would steal his soul. In truth, the apocryphal tale has no historical evidence. But taking photos is intrusive, and most people would agree upon some near universal norms regarding photography (e.g. taking photos of children in public).

For photojournalists, the ethics of photography are part and parcel of the job, and when to take a photo is a major component of those ethics.

The issue boiled over again last week with the controversy surrounding disgraced photojournalist Souvid Datta whose shoddy plagiarism of a Mary Ellen Mark photo eclipsed a prior discussion of his photo of an alleged rape (alleged because we have no reason to believe the veracity of his captions or whether he staged a scene).

But questions regarding the rape photo remains central to the discussion of ethics. NPPA President Melissa Lyttle wrote, According to the NPPA Code of Ethics, visual journalists are supposed to treat subjects with dignity and respect and to give special consideration and compassion to vulnerable subjects. As human beings, we have a moral obligation to do no harm.

But the reality on the ground is often rife with ambiguity.

A Historical Perspective

On August 6, 1945, the US detonated the first atomic bomb over Hiroshima, which indiscriminately killed approximately 145,000 people within four months (half those deaths occurred on the day of the bombing). On the ground, photojournalist Yoshito Matsushige took the only known photos from the day.

In a 1986 interview for the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Matsushige said, I saw [all this destruction] and I thought about taking picturesso I got my camera readybut I just couldnt do it. It was such a pitiful scene But these children, any moment they would start dying. It was so hard to ta...

Dear Camera Makers, Please Bring Back the Compact Film Camera "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Over the past several years, I have watched as the prices for compact film cameras have steadily increased into the sort of price ranges usually reserved for collectible cameras.

This was inevitable. These cameras are getting expensive not just because they are more popular, but also because there are fewer and fewer or them available now. Even the younger compact cameras (apart from the Fuji Klasse) are over 10 years old now and they are reaching their performance limits. Basically, the cameras are dying and there is nobody that can rescue them.

When I started my website, Japan Camera Hunter, about 7 years ago, you could bag a Ricoh GR1 or a Contax T2 for about $250. Now they are $700+ for the same camera, but older and more used.

This has become such an issue now that I no longer source compact cameras I locate and buy cameras for customers around the world as I simply cannot find enough of them to meet the demand. And demand is high, I get 20+ emails a day asking for compact cameras, and I have to turn them all away. And it hurts me to do so every single time.

And herein lies the problem. What are we going to do for a compact camera in the coming years?

This is something that has been playing on my mind for some time now. And I have mentioned it to people like Juho, who started a database for helping to make sure film is available in the future.

I would dearly love to make a compact camera, and I know what I want too. Based on the buying requirements of years of customers it would not have to be an overly complicated camera. A simple point and shoot with a decent 28mm or 35mm lens, flash, ISO selector and manual override. As simple as possible and made from metal for durability. The fewer electronic components the better, so that it can be easily serviceable and less prone to breaking down.

But I am just one guy and I dont have the weight of a large company or invest...

Tiny Steel Bikes Are Actually Stands for Life-Size Bicycles "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

On Bicycle Stand Bike-Shaped Bike Stand Yuma Kano Studio Yumakano

Known for putting a smile-inducing spin on overlooked objects, Japanese designer Yuma Kano creates pieces that are both fun and functional. This refreshing approach to industrial design is particularly evident in one of his most recent designs, the On Bicycle Standa bike rack that looks like a teeny, tiny two-wheeler.

Like traditional bike stands, Kano's contemporary design is made out of steel and is easily installed with a drill. What sets the On Bicycle Stand apart from others is its aesthetic. Each stand is simplistically shaped like a minimalist, miniature bike. Rendered in black and evocative of a line drawing, the delightful designs double as aesthetically-pleasing public fixtures and as easy-to-identify signage.  To add even more character to his creations, Kano has designed 2 styles of the On Bicycle Stand. The first, inspired by a racing bicycle, features curved handlebars. The otherwhich is based on standard modelfeatures more conventional grips.

Kano was inspired to create the On Bicycle Stand by his less-than-positive past experiences with Japan's current bicycle parking system. The stand was designed to solve the problem of randomly parked and bunched up bicycles on streets, sidewalks, and parking lots, Studio Yumakano explains. Placing them could create lanes of traffic to walk or ride through, create a pleasant atmosphere, and invite people to stop and look around.

By addressing a prevalent and public problem with such an artistic approach, Kano is one step closer to fulfilling his studio's goal: To inspire a fun, creative world where everyone is able to find new possibilities by exploring unnoticed aspects of the everyday.

The On Bicycle Stand by Yuma Kano of Studio Yumakano is a mini, bike-shaped bike stand and a parking sign.



Old Fashioned Sugar Cookie Recipe "IndyWatch Feed Health"

sugar cookie recipeMy paternal Grandmother was not much of a cook, but wow, could she ever bake! Every year during the first week of December, she would go on a baking binge and whip up dozens of cookies for the Christmas holiday. My two favorites were her incredible gingerbread cookies and the old fashioned sugar cookie recipe below. She and Grandpa lived down the street, so my siblings and I could bike over after school and grab a couple for an afternoon snack.

Its hard to believe, but if Grandma was alive today, she would be over 125 years old! Born in 1890, she grew up without fast food, vegetable oils, refined flour, or GMOs. As you can see from her yellowed, handwritten recipe card below, butter and cream were considered essential for sugar cookies back then.

OK So What Happens to the Rest of the US (Martial Law, etc.) if a Nuke goes off in One State Only? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Someone made a good point that caused me to re-evaluate my mindset of what would happen to the rest of the US if North Korea or any other force hit one State, say Washington State, for example. They basically said things would be like what happened after 9-11: Flights would be grounded, etc. What do you think- will the US Government have the Country under Marital Law with curfews, stop/slow down commerce/shipment of goods, etc., for a period over a month?

Drone Crashes Right in Front of Cyclist, Causing Nasty Wreck "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Many (if not most) drone pilots are safe and responsible flyers, but it only takes a few to ruin it for everyone. Whoever was piloting this drone at a cycling race might be one of those few.

Cyclist Kaito Clark was racing in the Golden State Race in Sacramento, CA this weekend when heand his handlebar cameracaptured a cringe-worthy series of events. A drone pilot, presumably getting some low-flying aerial shots of the race as the cyclists zoomed by, lost control of his drone when it hit some tree branches.

The drone came careening to the ground, smashing to pieces right in front of Clarkes friend riding just a few meters ahead. The cyclist seems, at first, to avoid the worst of the consequences, swerving to avoid the big chunks and starting to slow down before one of the drone pieces catches in his front wheel and fork, sending him over the handlebars. The resulting crash is not easy to watch.

Details about this crash are sparse, but Cycling Weekly reports that the rider avoided the worst possible injuries, walking away with a broken wheel, helmet and some road rash, but no broken bones. The drone operator, says Clarke on Reddit, offered to buy the crashed cyclist a new wheel and helmet.

No word on how the cyclist feels about this offer

Let this video serve as a reminder to fly your camera drone legally and vigilantly at all times, especially when youre flying around people. This completely avoidable wreck could have resulting in some very serious injuries.

Green Point Projects Presents an Exhibition of Work by Stanisaw Fijakowski "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Stanisaw Fijakowski, A Young Man Plans a Voyage February 3 1973 (1973), acrylic on canvas, 39.3 x 28.7 inches

Opening: Wednesday, May 10, 79 pm

Green Point Projects, a new cultural initiative in Brooklyn located in a repurposed warehouse in an industrial part of Greenpoint, are pleased to announce Stanisaw Fijakowski: A Young Man Plans a Voyage, an exhibition curated by Marek Bartelik.

The inaugural exhibition examines the work of ninety-five year old Polish artist Stanislaw Fijalkowski, one of the pioneers of post-war lyrical abstraction derived from constructivism and surrealism.

As curator of the exhibition Marek Bartelik says: I perceive Fijakowski as one of the most discrete and quiet Polish artists today. I know very few artists who have managed to retain such great calmness in art and to express much with so little: a few lines and a few colors, an allusion to a theme or a motif, a trace, a void. Minimalism, yes, but not devoid of emotions, sometimes explicit, sometimes even whimsical, always unexpected.

Stanislaw Fijalkowski was born in 1922 and currently lives and works in d, Poland. Between 1947-51, Fijakowski studied painting and graphic arts with the renowned Constructivist Wadysaw Strzemiski, among others, at the State Art College in d. His works are included in the collections of MoMA, New York; Tate Gallery, London; Trietriakov Gallery, Moscow, and the Muzeum Sztuki in d among others as well as in numerous private collections in Poland and abroad.

Every single Machine Learning course on the internet, ranked by your reviews "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Wooden Robot by Kaboompics

A year and a half ago, I dropped out of one of the best computer science programs in Canada. I started creating my own data science masters program using online resources. I realized that I could learn everything I needed through edX, Coursera, and Udacity instead. And I could learn it faster, more efficiently, and for a fraction of the cost.

Im almost finished now. Ive taken many data science-related courses and audited portions of many more. I know the options out there, and what skills are needed for learners preparing for a data analyst or data scientist role. So I started creating a review-driven guide that recommends the best courses for each subject within data science.

For the first guide in the series, I recommended a few coding classes for the beginner data scientist. Then it was statistics and probability classes. Then introductions to data science. Also, data visualization.

Now onto machine learning.

For this guide, I spent a dozen hours trying to identify every online machine learning course offered as of May 2017, extracting key bits of information from their syllabi and reviews, and compiling their ratings. My end goal was to identify the three best courses available and present them to you, below.

For this task, I turned to none other than the open source Class Central community, and its database of thousands of course ratings and reviews.

Class Centrals homepage.

Since 2011, Class Central founder Dhawal Shah has kept a closer eye on online courses than arguably anyone else in the world. Dhawal personally helped me assemble this list of resources.

How we picked courses to consider

Each course must fit three criteria:



A Mirrored Golden Egg Sauna is Hatched in Sweden "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

All photos by Jean-Baptiste Branger.

Architects Bigert & Bergstrom recently unveiled Solar Egg, an egg-shaped wood-burning sauna that can seat up to 8 people. The project is part of an urban redevelopment effort lead by developer Riksbyggen in the northernmost city in Sweden called Kiruna. Standing 16 feet (5m) tall, the eye-catching egg is comprised of a pine wood interior and highly reflective gold plated steel panels that reflect the environment surrounding the sauna. In the center rests a heart-shaped sauna stove cast from iron. From Bigert & Bergstrom:

In the arctic climate of Lapland the sauna occupies a key position, as a room for warmth and reflection. B&B have taken up this tradition and developed a sculptural symbol that prompts thoughts of rebirth and an incubator that nurtures conversation and exchanges of ideas. The project is a continuation of the artists strategy to incorporate the climate into the experience of the artwork which was initiated with the Climate Chambers in 1994.

When not in use, Solar Egg can be broken down into 69 separate components which can be reassembled elsewhere, rendering the entire sauna completely mobile. You can learn more about Solar Egg here. (via Contemporist)



Ireland investigated for blasphemy against Stephen Fry "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Worshippers of Stephen Fry are to take Ireland to court on several counts of blasphemy, after commentators there labelled him a maniac and not the true comedy messiah. In an article written for the Irish Tribune, TV reviewer Andrew Dunn wrote: Other TV panel show hosts are able to carry out their duties without being all wise and clever, but Fry persists in giving regular demonstration of his comic propensity and verbal dexterity, effectively claiming he is the creator of all comedy. If this is true, how then can he justify the misery caused by On the Buses, Roy Chubby Brown and Miranda?

Since the rise of alternative comedy in the 1980s, it has been a criminal offence under the Defamation Act to criticise any past member of Cambridge Footlights unless it is Judas, or Tony Slattery as he is more commonly known. God explained: I sent my son to die for your sins not for you to commission Mrs Browns Boys. I demand more Stephen on TV or Ill send down a plague of James Cordens on you all for another seven years.

Sainted in the 1980s for making Ben Elton seem funny, St. Stephen has since spent his career walking on water, while performing the miracle of getting anything with Alan Davies in it to a baseline of 4 million viewers. Thus, while it is perfectly acceptable to confess to a priest that you did not like Mr. Fry appearing on a Kate Bush album, it is a mortal sin to suggest that St. Stephen is not a national treasure.

Fryars have been quick to come to the raconteurs defence; a devotee of the Church of the Bent Nose told us: The attacks on Fry are an outrage to those to who hold QI and its latter-day spin-offs sacred. We must remember that we are still fundamentally a Fry-worshipping country. He added: We continue to believe we are living in the last days, when the Exalted One will return to QI as prophesised by Dave, and the false host Toksvig shall be abolished for all time.

A defendant for Ireland has claimed that the country didnt name any panel show host in particular, and could have been referring to any novelist, actor and devotee of Oscar Wilde who presents an amusing knowledge-based comedy quiz.

Fry himself has released a statement in the form of a burning bush, expressing that he is astonished as astonished as Mr A. Stonished, professor of astonishment at Astonished University.

The MoMA Teaches You How to Paint Like Pollock, Rothko, de Kooning & Other Abstract Painters: Free Course Begins on May 22 "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Some may find her insufferable, but most readers adore her: the insouciant little pig OliviaNew Yorker, art lover, and Caldecott Medal winnerhas forever embedded herself in childrens literary culture as an archetype of childhood curiosity and self-confidence, especially in scenes like that of the first book of the series, in which the fearless piglet produces her own drip painting on the wall of the familys Upper East Side apartment after puzzling over Jackson Pollocks work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (Olivia also admires Degas, aspires to the ballet, and dreams of being Maria Callas.)

Olivias headstrong challenge to Pollock is infectious, and enacts a notion common among amateur viewers of Abstract ExpressionismI could do that.

The Higher the Climb, the Better the View "IndyWatch Feed Health"


By Lanaria Amberkira, The Netherlands

When still in our mothers womb, we are one with the primordial essence. In our essence, we are as newborn children. We instinctively do what is good for us, without even having to think about it. We have unconditional confidence in our environment and in others. There is no conflict between our thoughts, our emotions and our instincts.

As our lives progress, our personality changes. We lose the primordial innocence as we are forced to adapt to adulthood in a society that deprives us of individuality and free choice. Our essence is gradually altered through environment, work, relationships and the things that are done to us and the things we do unto others. In our lives, we are victims and perpetrators at the same time, innocent yet responsible. During our lifes journey, we become alienated from our essence, from our true selves. This alienation may cause life to become useless or meaningless, a source of suffering.

Every human being is in a lifelong process of development towards higher forms of consciousness. However, many are stuck in their own prison, in the self-imposed spiritual confinement. Obviously, life comes with many ups and downs, with mishaps and calamities at every corner. But even though some calamities are unavoidable, many stem from a distorted vision, a biased judgement influenced by our own environment.

Resting & Soaking in Brand New Baby Cleo "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Cleos birth story begins in the middle of a February heatwave. My husband and I had escaped our 3 children (then aged 7, 4, and 2) for a rare date night, and during dinner he leans over the table and with a cheeky grin says So, should we have another baby? I laugh, because we both know that the answer is yes, and the real question is when. I tell him that having spent most of the last 8 years either pregnant or breastfeeding, I am utterly depleted and need to have some time to recharge my body and mind before we do it all again.

A couple of days later I wake up, expecting my period, but it hasnt started, and I know. I just know. A pregnancy test later that day confirms it, and I sit on the bed and sob with shock. I want another baby with all my heart but not now! I am gutted; I had wanted to feel ready, I had wanted to want to be pregnant. It takes me months to process this new reality, and I feel heavy with guilt over my ambivalence.

Our 4 year old daughter, desperate for a sister, wanted to know the sex of the baby, and we find out at the 20-week scan that we are expecting a girl. With two boys and a girl already, both my husband and I had also been quietly hoping for another daughter, and I finally begin to feel glimmers of hope and excitement.

But anxiety lurks. On paper Id had dream births (including two home births), ranging from 2-4.5 hours, spontaneous labours around 39 weeks, no interventions, drugs or stitches. But the birth of my third child had been very difficult for me mentally; from the outside it seemed like a gentle home water birth, but in my head I had been in a war zone against pain, unwilling and unable to lose myself into labour land. My labour had stalled in response; I felt like I had failed, and struggled with worry that I might repeat the same mistakes. My son had also had long term and traumatic breastfeeding difficulties due to an undiagnosed tongue tie, and I was terrified of the possibility of facing that all over again.

As my pregnancy progressed, I found myself feeling increasingly listless. Unable to summon up interest for movies, TV, or books, most evenings I would end up simply taking a long bath before bed. It was only there, floating in the candle lit bathroom, that I felt safe enough to allow myself to dream and hope for this baby. As the months passed, I slowly worked through my fears and in my heart of hearts I knew that I was not going to be able to let them go I had to feel the fear and birth anyway!

God issued subpoena in Stephen Fry case "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Irish lawyers have confirmed that a key witness in the Stephen Fry blasphemy case had failed to turn up for preliminary court sittings. His lawyer insists hes here, hes there, hes, apparently, every-bloody-where, said a defence lawyer representing Mr Fry, but can we see him? no, we cant.

Prosecution lawyers have insisted that the witness isnt necessary for their case and suggested that the defence just have faith in the system. God only knows what will happen, they have suggested.

Fry is charged with blasphemy after saying on radio two years ago that God must be a mean spirited being, however the prosecution point out that without the hand of God we wouldnt have grass, Jeremy Corbyn, Theresa May, Kim Jong-un, nuclear weapons, cancer, chemical weapons and war. Well, grass is kind of nice, said a prosecution lawyer, who claimed his lawn was admittedly looking a little shoddy at the edges thanks to the lack of rain last winter, he said, pointing out that rainfall was at the mercy of God. Oh bugger, I think weve lost.


In Search of Olga, Picassos First Wife and Muse "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Pablo Picasso, Portrait dOlga dans un fauteuil (1918), oil on canvas, 130 x 88.8 cm (collection of Musee national Picasso-Paris, RMN-Grand Palais / Mathieu Rabeau) (all images courtesy of Muse national Picasso-Paris)

PARIS Theres a telling photo of Pablo Picasso and Olga Khokhlova in Rome in 1917, at the very beginning of the couples courtship. Picasso, flanked by the grinning woman who would soon become his first wife and his friend, the playwright Jean Cocteau, isnt even looking at the camera. His body is turned to the side, his piercing gaze intensely fixed on Olga. You can feel the yearning burning through him. The relationship was fresh, lustful, perhaps the closest it ever came to bliss. Olga would dominate his works over the next several years, reading or holding their son Paul, yet always seeming to shy away from his scrutiny. By the end of the following decade, Picasso had shifted his attentions to another woman, but that same ferocity would return in the form of blistering depictions of Olga.

That photo, on view at the Picasso Museum as part of Olga Picasso, the first exhibit devoted to the artists first wife and one of his longtime muses, is remarkable for another reason: Its one of the rare moments we see Olga smiling. Born in 1891 in Nezhin, a Ukrainian city that was then part of the Russian Empire, Olga Khokhlova joined Sergei Diaghilevs Ballets Russes in 1912. She left home to travel with the company in 1915, two years before the outbreak of the Russian Revolution, and she never saw her family again. Our perception of this woman rests almost solely on the prism of Picassos gaze and, later, his cooling affection for her.


15 Shop Spaces That Put Red to Work "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Red Shops on Design*Sponge

Red is one of my favorite colors to use when something needs a little cheering up. It can brighten a rainy day, make an object stand out, and Ive never tasted a red fruit or vegetable that didnt enhance flavor. But it isnt always used to activate happiness. The color red has a very powerful psychological duality. It can spark an undeniable optimism and it can also be intimidating and aggressive. Our emotional response to this color is usually dependent on the tone, amount, and context of use. Successful red placement considers balance and how it interacts with other colors.

As a primary, we see red everywhere, whether we are conscious of it or not. Think about the beautiful red tones we encounter outdoors flowers, soil, rocks and birds. These natural reds lead us to appreciate this type of warmth as something special in our visual experience. Designers often use red as a dominant accent to command attention and when used thoughtfully, the results are instantly breathtaking. Im sure youve heard the phrase, pop of color. If so, it was likely a reference to a red hue that brings something unexpected into view. Red is persuasive, playful and always wants to be the center of attention.

Below are a few examples of shops that have considerately used red as a means of crafting a memorable customer experience with wit and intrigue. Bethany

Study Finds Pharma Reps Influence Doctor Prescription Decisions "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Doctors at teaching hospitals are more likely to prescribe generic drugs over name-brand ones when pharmaceutical sales representatives are kept at bay, a study published in JAMA shows. [1]

By comparison, doctors working in hospitals that dont keep pharma sales reps on a short leash freely accepting meals and gifts, and letting reps have free reign of the hospital prescribed far more name-brand medications.

In other words, pharma reps know how to sweet-talk docs into choosing significantly more expensive drugs over cheaper generics.

Findings of the Study

For the teaching hospital study, researchers looked at 19 centers in 5 states that restricted visits by drug reps by:

  • limiting access
  • limiting gifts
  • or punishing reps who broke the rules

The team compared prescriptions by 2,126 doctors at teaching hospitals with 24,593 of their peers with similar characteristics who did not limit reps access. The study also examined more than 16 million prescriptions in total, using data from CVS Caremark, a large pharmacy benefit manager.

In an editorial accompanying the study, Charles Ornstein, from ProPublica, writes:

Understanding the financial relationships between physicians and the drug industry is only 1 window into prescribing habits. It is just as important, if not more so, to understand how prescribing practices of physicians compare with their peers. Most physicians generally are not aware if their drug choices are similar to other physicians in their fields; there has been no definition of what constitutes normal prescribing. [2]

Read: Pharma Companies Spend 19x More on Marketing Than Research

Significant changes were found in 6 of the 8 drug classes studied at 9 of the 19 hospitals reviewed. The policies were enacted at various times from 2006-2011. Changes in prescribing started immediately and lasted from 12 to 36 months afterward, however. This led to an increase of up to 10% in physicians favoring cheaper generics over more expensive, name-brand drugs a small, but significant number. [1] [3]

One thing the study didnt examine was whether generic drugs were the more medically-sound approach. Privacy laws made it impossible to study that aspect. [3]

Furthermore, the fact that ch...

The story received little attention, but it showed without a shadow of a doubt that something dangerous is lurking below the Arctics permafrost. As it turns out, the contagion was identified as a strain of Bacillus Anthracis, more commonly known as Anthrax, and was believed to have been released into the wildlife and human population after warmer temperatures melted the ice.

Painted Ceramic Sculptures Double as Eccentric Vases and Cups "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Porcelain Sculptures

Artist Irina Zaytceva works with clay to craft elegant vesselsbut with a distinct twist. Going beyond conventional cups and vases, she adds wings, thick vines, and coral structures that seemingly sprout from the side of the porcelain sculptures. They offer a whole new meaning to Zaytcevas surface decorations, which are soft, dreamy portraits of people and nymph-like creatures. With the additions, these characters are suddenly taking flight or diving under the sea. Together, they tell one fantastical storya skill that Zaytceva has honed thanks to her MFA in book illustration.

Zaytceva has a painterly approach to her glazing techniques. She achieves an incredible range of tone and color in her work, and the figures seem to glow with an inner light. To do this, she uses a series of underglaze (applying the design before its glazed) and overglaze (painting on top of an already glazed surface). This helps to give her work depth both visually and conceptually, and proves that you dont need the pages of a book to tell a compelling tale.

Artist Irina Zaytceva adds 3D elements like butterfly wings and coral to the sides of her painted clay sculpture.

ABU DHABI, UAE In a recent conversation about his new role, Hammad Naser, the curator appointed to organize the United Arab Emirates (UAE) pavilion at the upcoming Venice Biennale, discussed his curatorial theme of exploring aspects of play through contemporary art from the region. For Naser, this idea took shape from observing the works of Hassan Sharif, Abdullah Al Saadi, and Mohammed Kazem three core members of a group of visual artists spearheaded by Sharif and often referred to as the five, who have come to define conceptual art in the UAE. This notion of playfulness couldnt have been a better lens through which to view the survey exhibition But We Cannot See Them: Tracing a UAE Community, 1988 2008, currently on view at the NYU Abu Dhabi Art Gallery, which showcases the innovative trajectory of the five, through the works of several key members of the group.

Fears of Tick-Borne Powassan Virus Increasing, Experts Warn "IndyWatch Feed Health"

After working in the garden or taking a walk in the woods, its a good common practice to check your body for ticks; but its not just Lyme disease you have to worry about anymore. Experts are warning that the Powassan virus, a tick-borne virus that can cause dangerous inflammation in the brain, may be transmitted even faster than Lyme. [1]

Powassan is still considered a rare disease; but a recent study of ticks in Maine, as well as a few widely-reported cases of human infection, suggest that the virus may becoming more common.

The Powassan Threat

Source: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Powassan virus neuroinvasive disease cases reported by state, 20042013

The Powassan virus can cause encephalitis, or swelling of the brain, and it kills approximately 10-15% of people who become sick, according to the CDC. Half of those infected are left with permanent neurological problems. [1] [2]

Read: Powassan Virus: Ticks Now Carrying Virus Worse than Lyme Disease

Dr. Jennifer Lyons, Chief of the Division of Neurological Infections and Inflammatory Diseases at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston, says:

About 15% of patients who are infected and have symptoms are not going TO? survive. Of the survivors, at least 50% will have long-term neurological damage that is not going to resolve. [2]

First identified in 1958, Powassan was recognized in the type of deer ticks that bite humans and also carry Lyme disease in the mid-1990s. Over the past decade, the CDC has received about 75 reports of the virus in humans, primarily in the Northeast and Great Lakes region. [1]

Scientists at the Maine Medical Research Center decided to test ticks at various sites from across the state after a Maine woman died a few weeks after being bitten by a tick and contracting Powassan virus in 2013. Two other cases were also identified.

The researchers said they were kind of surprised that they found as much of the virus as they did. Out of 203 different pools of adult ticks meaning all of the ticks collected from a given area 15 tested positive for Powassan. The researchers also f...

The True Source of Healing "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Voice of Clear Light

There is no better protection than the refuge of unbounded sacred space, infinite awareness, and genuine warmth. Any external source of refuge is ultimately unreliable. Looking for refuge in money or material possessions cannot protect you from the pain of loss, because everything you have will be lost to you someday. No matter how good your health insurance is or how healthy your lifestyle, sooner or later you will suffer from injury or sickness; eventually you will die. Finding your perfect soul mate cannot protect you from someday losing your beloved through separation, divorce, or death.

With the inner refuge, you are not depending on someone or something outside you to make you feel secure. The first refuge, unbounded sacred space, is a true support because it is unchanging, indestructible, beyond birth and death, eternal. Whatever difficulties you face, the first refuge supports you in allowing your experiences and hosting them fully. The second inner refuge, the light of awareness, can never be diminished or extinguished by any cause or condition. Inner light is unceasing forever luminous and clear. Even in the darkest of circumstances, you can trust that it is always there. You can also trust that the warmth of the third refuge is within you. It spontaneously arises from the union of openness and awareness.

There may be moments when you feel emotionally cold and dark, when it seems that all the light has gone from your life. But your experience and inner truth are not in sync the light is always there. At these moments, access to the inner refuge may seem distant, but a sense of trust may bring you a glimmer of the inner refuge that can lead to a shift in the darkness of your experience. Trust is a necessary companion on the path. There is no situation so bad that you can't turn toward the three doors. As you become more familiar with entering and abiding in the inner refuge, you will begin to trust in its healing presence.

The Liberal's Wet Dream For Your Nation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Wet Dreams of the Left For America

It is difficult to emulate the insanity of the left, but it is predictable to concoct an accurate depiction about what designs the radical liberals would have for our society. The following will be a portrayal of the kind of mindset that not only propels the left, but just how they would transform the landscape of America on a political and social level. It is, if nothing else, an insight into fascism, delusion, and schizophrenia, never the less, we have a disturbingly large demographic of ignorant Americans who would throw our nation to the wolves just to satisfy their unrealistic fantasy of some kind of twisted utopia where they could exist if only in an illusion that resides inside their heads.

Sexual freedom?

If the left had their way you might imagine a weather forecast on TV with a transvestite cross dresser giving a 5 day outlook while pawing at his or her surgically transgendered partner. With children at an elementary school level already being introduced to the use of condoms we can imagine 24 hour Kiddie Porn on a number of channels for all those pedophiles due to the fact that the Obama Department of Justice tried to decriminalize such behavior. Perhaps kids in the classroom would be free to tune in while attending public school!


With Bill Nye, the Science Guy, calling for parents of big families to be penalized for their carbon footprint we are also reminded of the Rhode Island Democrat who called for charging those criminally who questioned the argument on Global Warming. In this wet dream of the left we could certainly conceive of the thought police at work controlling our ideological reactions, our values, and our responses to their invasive forms of legislation and lawmaking! It is not much of a stretch to anticipate federal reorientation centers being overwhelmed with conservatives, Christians, and anyone who opposed the liberal agenda. Surely such methods as shock treatment, frontal lobotomies, and water boarding would be in order so that these unenlightened individuals could grasp the leftist utopia they were refusing to embrace!

DNA Clearing Upgrade & Experiences With Reptilian Device Removals "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Matthew;

Theres constantly new upgrades and tools available to us with all of the changes coming in with new energies. One of these was made known to me near the beginning of April. This upgrade ended up clearing my DNA and resulted in multiple hidden devices being able to be seen, so they could be removed. These devices were nasty and I want to share the information from this experience. The upgrade is still working currently and with great efficiently. Im hoping many others can benefit from this and it will help you speed up your clearing process.

The upgrade that I was able to put into my DNA, from what Ive gathered so far, looks more like a Christ Star (has absolutely nothing to do with religion) and could be referred to as a clearing star. Unlike other upgrades and clearings that I have done where you would replicate it and attach it to every cell of your being (over trillions of cells), this is just a single star that goes throughout your DNA. Both myself and a family member put this into ourselves when it was shown to us that it was available.

So far, it seems as though it will go through your DNA and repair the DNA that the Reptilians have altered to bring it back to the original template, as well as prepare your DNA to raise its frequency. It will bring up past lives, hidden devices, implants, and whatever else is important for you to clear. Im sure this will vary from person to person as far as what comes up. Its brought a lot of hidden things up that were not able to be seen before. The star has needed to be moved in our DNA as well, to different places for each of us. It seemed as though getting it to the master cell was important. This will also be something you will have to figure out with your own resources as far as what is best for you.

Maverick school governors get results by breaking the rules "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The Government has given schools greater powers to sack maverick governors, who break the rules, do things their way and almost never complete their expenses on time.

Okay, they get results, but we cant have governors running around out of control, said a DfE spokesman. These people invariably have a quirk a vintage car, taste for jazz, maybe a gambling addiction or a painfully broken marriage. And they spend a lot of time gazing wistfully into middle distance. Its unacceptable.

Forms are there for a reason. Rules are there for a reason. What if the whole education system was run by mavericks? Wed have . . . well, widespread functional illiteracy and the worst Pisa results since records began. Like now. But that isnt the point. Were the DfE and we dont want any bloody mavericks.

A spokesman for the Association of Maverick Governors was asked for a comment but he just stared into middle distance, wistfully.


30 Hours of Doctor Who Audio Dramas Now Streaming on Spotify "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Yes, this should provide adequate sustenance for the Doctor Who marathon, once said The Simpsons Comic Book Guy while pushing a wheelbarrow full of fast-food tacos down the street. As the embodiment of fandom for all things fantasy and sci-fi, he would certainly know that Doctor Who, no longer an obscure BBC television show but an ever-expanding fictional universe with a global fan base, constitutes the ideal material for binge-watching, which he could now do at his convenience on a service like Britbox. But it isnt just watching: now, on Spotify (whose free software you can download here if you dont have it already), you can binge-listen to thirty straight hours of Doctor Who audio dramas as well.

An icon of modern British culture and the longest-running science-fiction TV show in history, Doctor Who has never been more popular than it is today, wrote Christopher Bahn in the AV Clubs 2010 primer on the series, which had relaunched five years earlier after initially running from 1963 to 1989. No matter whos playing the lead, the basic premise has been essentially the same since the shows debut: A mysterious, eccentric alien known only as The Doctor (not Doctor Who, in spite of the title) travels through time and space having adventures and fighting evil. Hes usually accompanied by one or two humans picked up along the way. They journey with him in a time machine called a TARDIS, which looks like a blue phone booth.

This format allowed the show to literally go anywhere in the universe and sometimes outside it, with virtually limitless storytelling possibilities. At its best, Doctor Who relied on solid, imaginative scripts to create smart science-fiction thrillers with a humanistic, anti-authoritarian heart. Consistently popular through the 1960s and 1970s, the show began to falter in the following decade as tight budgets and questionable artistic choices took their toll. After its cancellation in 1989, Doctor Who lived on through the 90s, as science-fiction shows often do, in the wilderness genres of semi-official n...

Twentieth anniversary of eviction from Kalahari highlights Bushmen plight "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Many Bushmen were moved to a government resettlement camp called New Xade in 1997
Noam Schimmel/Survival

Twenty years ago today, hundreds of Bushmen were ordered to abandon their homes deep in Botswanas Central Kalahari Game Reserve (CKGR).

This was the first in a wave of evictions by the government, determined to open up their ancestral homes to diamond mining and tourism.

The Bushmen of Xade community were given no warning and were ordered to leave their homes immediately. They were herded onto trucks and those who refused to do so were told they would be shot by the army.

Along with force, underhand tactics were employed: some Bushman children and their teachers were moved earlier, forcing anxious parents to follow them to the eviction camp, New Xade, which they soon dubbed the Place of Death.

Life here, as witnessed by Survival campaigners and much of the worlds media, was bleak. Bushmen were housed in tents like refugees and were totally reliant on handouts from the government.

Many succumbed to HIV/AIDS and alcoholism introduced by outsiders, who flocked to the camp to profit from the Bushmens meager compensation money.

From resilient hunters and gatherers with a strong sense of independence and identity, the Bushmen were reduced to a life of boredom, depression and hopelessness which continues to this day.

For many observers, the governments inhumane treatment of Botswanas first people echoed neighboring South Africas apartheid regime, where black communities were systemically evicted from their homes and dumped into crowded slums on the outskirts of the cities.

This was the latest chapter in centuries of persecution of southern Africas Bushman peoples by white colonists and Bantu peoples.



Russian Blogger Faces Prison for Playing Game in Church "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Russian Blogger

In 2013, the Russian parliament passed a law that criminalized activities that insult the feelings of believers. If charged, defendants face up to three years in jail, and at least six men stood trial last year under this charge. Sokolovsky, the last in a series of accused, posted a video on his blog showing him playing the smartphone game Pokemon Go in a church built on the supposed spot where the last Russian tsar, Nicholas II, and his family were killed.

But, you know, I didn't catch the rarest Pokmon that you could find there Jesus, Sokolovsky, an outspoken atheist, said at the end of a video he recorded that day. They said it doesn't even exist, so I'm not really surprised. He also started an atheist magazine in 2016 according to The Moscow Times.

A local branch of the Ministry of the Interior reportedly discovered the bloggers YouTube video through its web monitoring program and sent it to the regional police Centre for Combating Extremism, according to Amnesty International. When Russian officials discovered the video, they detained Sokolovsky last year and charged him with inciting hatred or enmity and insulting human dignity and public actions expressing clear disrespect to society with the aim to insult religious feelings of believers committed in places for religious worship. He has been in detention since October. Now he is facing the possible sentence of 3 years in prison.

Sokolovsky, now 22, protested that his potential punishment outweighed the crime. Some people have blasted the potential punishment and the law as a restriction on free speech, while prosecutors have justified Sokolovsky's arrest under a new law that prevents the violation of the right to freedom of conscience and belief. Previously #Russia jailed people for mocking Communism/Stalin, now for mocking Orthodoxy, Moscow Times reporter Matthew Kupfer tweeted. According to the human rights group Amnesty International Ruslan is a prisoner of conscience, punished for peacefully expressing views which he is perfectly entitled to do.

This was not the first case of capturing little monsters, Pokemon Go, the app that allows users to catch 'em all using augmented reality, in places that are not suitable for playing games. Officials of the Holocaust Museum in Washington were forced to publicly urge people to stop catching virtual monsters inside its halls. Last September, In India, a high court in the state of Gujarat sent notices that it decided to hear a complaint alleging that the augmented reality game tramples religious sentiments...


Benjamin Fulford 5-8-17 It is time for Canadian LBO of bankrupt US Corporate government "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

New weekly report from Ben.

Despite an ongoing pretense that nothing happened, it turns out the US corporate government based in Washington DC and registered in Puerto Rico really did go bankrupt last week Puerto Rico is a fully owned DC subsidiary and so the parent company must take the fall.

Both emergency meetings had to do with the cashing of Super Petchili or Lung-Tsing-U-Hai bonds backed by Chinese gold and held by many members of the worlds royal families, according to a senior bank source in exchange for resigning, Prince Philip was allowed to cash his Petchilis meaning the British Royal Family now has in its hands enough money to totally transform the planet.

Canada is now in a position to ask creditors of the bankrupt United States Corporation for financing of a leveraged buy-out of its operations. The result would be an end to the never ending insanity and criminality emerging out of Washington DC.

in terms of how this will affect the planet, this under the radar move is far more important than the French Presidential election. This was stolen by the Rothschilds on behalf of their slave Emmanuel Macron with a in your face, Satanic 66.06% of the vote.

The Octopus, a Motif of Evil in Historical Propaganda Maps "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Fred W. Rose, Serio-Comic War Map For The Year 1877 (1877), published by G. W. Bacon & Co. two months after Russia attacked the Ottoman Empire in response to the Turkish massacre of Christian Bulgarians (represented by a skull) (courtesy Persuasive Maps: PJ Mode Collection, Cornell University Library)

Caricaturist Fred W. Roses 1877 map published in the midst of the Russo-Turkish War shows Russia creeping like an octopus across the globe, its tentacles grasping at land on all sides. While the other countries are illustrated as people, Russia is depicted as something alien and monstrous. The arresting visual began a trend of cartographic cephalopods, many of which feature in the PJ Mode Collection at Cornell University Library.

As previously covered on Hyperallergic, the PJ Mode Collection, donated to Cornell in 2014, focuses on persuasive cartography, or cartographic propaganda. These maps from the 15th century to the present were designed to convey a certain point of view rather than an accurate geography.

If Money can Make you Happy, can Debt Make you Sad? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Aeon: While research shows that having financial resources contributes to our happiness and satisfaction, borrowing money and being in debt add to our dissatisfaction and stress.

To drill down deeper, our team analysed a large sample of college students and the impact of their student loans on subjective wellbeing. Much of what we found seemed self-evident: if a debt felt manageable, it was less damaging to an individuals sense of wellbeing than if the debt felt overwhelming. A persons sense of wellbeing varied with the source of the borrowed funds. Money borrowed from people or places charging less interest or offering more flexibility subsidised student loans, for instance results in less stress than money borrowed from financial institutions with exorbitant interest rates and no forgiveness policies. The emotional toll taken by debt varied with the degree to which an individual had other financial resources

Henry Rollins Slated to Appear in Random 90s Movie Youre Watching "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

YOUR LIVING ROOM Punk icon Henry Rollins is slated to appear in an upcoming scene in the decades-old film you decided to watch tonight and not in a blink-and-youll-miss-it cameo, sources report, but in an honest-to-God, real supporting role.

I love acting, but Im a guy who does my best work when nobody expects it, said Rollins. I aim for the kind of performance that makes you say, is is that Henry Rollins? If you pause the movie to go check IMDB, Ive done my job. Rollins then promised to deliver just that when he appears on-screen before you in a few moments.

The film, which sources maintain you chose to watch after saying, Hey, I havent thought about that movie in forever, did not advertise its employment of the former Black Flag singer whatsoever. A timeline confirms Rollins is scheduled to make his first on-screen appearance deep into the film, certain to take you out of the movie during critical plot points.

The legendary rocker insisted his role was the culmination of years of hard work. My acting career really took off when I crashed the set of Silence of the Lambs, said Rollins. Its a long story. Basically, one of the producers gave me his card after watching me put Anthony Hopkins in a headlock. The rest is history.

Despite your reservations towards Rollins as an actor, many inside Hollywood applaud the punk rocker for his acting chops.


We love working with Henry. Hes always so funny on set, and can just talk for hours and hours about Lord knows what, said longtime casting director Tristan Bordeaux. Hes the perfect actor for casting someone distinctive, tough, and significantly less expensive than Ed Harris.

Following a quick glance at his filmography, you were surprised to learn Rollins also appeared in studio films like Jack Frost, The Chase, and Johnny Mnemonic, playing characters spanning the range of beefy hockey coach, beefy cop, and beefy computer doctor guy.

My favorite performance so far, said Rollins, was teaming up fellow musician Marilyn Manson on David Lynchs Lost Highway. We w...

Stevia: Alternative To Antibiotics In Treating Lyme Disease "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Amelia Kinney; True Activist

Your favourite sweetener has surprising health benefits.

Lyme disease seems to be getting more attention lately in the media, partly because its very difficult to treat and causes a multitude of symptoms throughout the body. An estimated 300,000 people are infected by Lyme in the United States every year by deer ticks and black-legged ticks, according to the CDC. The infection can ravage the health of an individual for years on end.

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection and as such, it is primarily treated with antibiotics. However, antibiotics are often insufficient. If left untreated, Lyme will spread to the joints, heart, and nervous system. A study published in the European Journal of Microbiology & Immunology proved that Stevia leaf is as effective than antibiotics in treating Lyme disease.

The study was conducted at the Dpt. of Biology and Environmental Science, at the University of New Haven in Connecticut. Stevia extracts from by the brands Nutramedix, Now, Sweetleaf, and Truvia were purchased from health food stores and tested against Borrelia pathogen. Interestingly, the liquid Stevia made from alcohol extraction was most effective against Borrelia, while the powder form and Stevioside showed no effect.

If DNA Is Software, Who Wrote The Code? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Tom Bunzel; Collective Evolution

Recently an article in SF Gate by Deepak Chopra and Pankaj S. Joshi, PhD Can There Be a Science of Consciousness? had this amazing quote: By taking for granted the obvious fact that it takes a mind to do science, weve reached the point where science is leaving out the very component that might answer the questions that urgently need answering, not because philosophy demands it but because science does.

As a longtime admirer of Deepaks work, I had reached out to him on several occasions because I felt his most recent book, You Are the Universe, co-authored with Menas Kafatos, PhD, resonated with my own ideas about the significance of sequencing (or decoding) DNA.

The mystery of DNA to me is as compelling a clue as the existence of the pyramids, precisely because as someone who discovered computer programming late in life, I recognized in its structure that it functions literally as an organic programming language.

Learn How to Properly Sandbag Your Home Before the Next Storm Arrives "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Anytime a major storm is approaching, time is of the essence to prepare. We all see the same thing on the news, images of first responders and volunteers constructing sandbag barriers to hold back a potential flood. But have you ever seen that and asked yourself if you know how to build a sandbag barrier? Id wager that most people dont, because by all appearances, building up a wall of sandbags is a very simple task. Its physically demanding, but not complex at all, so most people probably assume that if they ever had to protect their home from a flood, working with sandbags would come naturally.

However, just because a task is simple, that doesnt mean that it lacks finer points. There is definitely a right way and a wrong way to build a sandbag barrier. If youve never been taught the right way, check out the following video. It was produced by Australias SES, a volunteer organization that provides emergency services during disasters. In a few short minutes, it explains all of the most basic and important tips you need to know to protect your home during a flood.

That tells you pretty much everything you need to know about using sandbags to hold back minor floods. However, if you think that a storm is going to produce a more serious flood, you may need to build a much more extensive barrier; perhaps something that will fully surround the perimeter of your home.

If thats the case, you should check out this video from Canada, which also offers a more in-depth analysis on sandbag construction.

Of course, the best way to ensure that your home will be safe from flooding is to have the tools you need in place, long before the flooding starts. If a major storm system is moving in, then people are going rush to the stores to buy things like sandbags, so theyll be in short supply during an emergency. You should buy plastic sheeting and sandbags ahead of time. And if you dont think that youll have access to sand, there are several varieties of bags that dont require it. They work by absorbing large quan...

Old woman in bus queue fails to disclose her age "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

there's nothing grander than a nice day outAn elderly woman in Beaconsfield who spent twenty minutes in a bus queue failed to disclose her age, despite several opportunities. People waiting for the number 39 circular were left stunned when their fellow passenger mounted the bus, having only complained about the weather, the price of digestive biscuits and the youth of today.

Marketing professional, Alex Jarvis, 23, a regular commuter on the number 39, said: She stood in front of me putting the world to right and I waited for her to ask me to guess how old she was. It left me feeling bitterly disappointed and frustrated when she got on without telling me. She clearly had all her own teeth as well, but she never even mentioned them.

Other passengers also complained about the paucity of age-related markers in the womans conversation. Stella Jones, a single mother from Woodburn Green, said: She never mentioned how old she was when the war started or how many prime ministers shed lived through. I was waiting for Asquith or Lloyd George to get a mention, but all she rambled on about was that horrible man, Ian Duncan Smith. I feel cheated.

After taking her seat in the disabled section, the bus travelled a further five miles into the town centre but, despite further opportunities to give her age away, nothing was forthcoming. It also remains entirely unclear whether the unknown woman is suffering from embarrassing vaginal secretions or how long ago her husband died, nor did she make any loud racist remarks despite the bus once spending two minutes in slow traffic, during which time a family of Bangladeshi origin walked right past it.

Teaching assistant Steve Arnold said: Im doing a World War II project with the kids at the moment so I was hoping shed start a bit of reminiscing with me. Instead I had to listen to her going on about how it was only middle-aged fat couples who win the National Lottery. It set me off on a really bad footing for the day and I really dont deserve to be made to put up with that kind of thing. Im thirty three, you know.


Pray for My Son: His Desert Island Band Is Linkin Park "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

I hate to go on the internet and ask for things, but right now my family could use all the support we can get. If you can find it in your hearts to pray for my little Kyle during this painful time for our family it would be greatly appreciated. Last night my son revealed the most painful news a father can hear:

His desert island band is Linkin Park.

I never saw this coming. I tried my best to protect him from Linkin Park. I had no idea he even liked rap-rock, and now THIS?

What a shock it was to send my 12-year-old son off to school on Friday morning only to have him come home with the news that if he were ever stranded on a desert island and could only listen to one band for ETERNITY it would be Linkin Park. Its bad enough he would choose a nu-metal band, but a nu-metal band that never went away and now dabbles in dub-step/electro-pop bullshit?

How could my son be so misguided?

When I heard, One Step Closer blaring from his room last week I thought he was just ironically singing along as a joke. But this is no joke, he legitimately likes Linkin Parks whole discography!

Related: OPINION: Youre Not My Dad

I promise we arent bad people. Weve always tried to raise Kyle to be a good person with good taste. But, hes not just dabbling in Linkin Park, its starting to consume his entire identity. Last night I caught him watching anime while Googling, hoop earrings. 

This is a crisis for my family so please if you can send thoughts or prayers wed greatly appreciate them. We need to stop this before an order from JYNCO shows up on my front porch.

Does your son believe that Linkin Park is the greatest band of all time? Snap him out of it with a Hard Times shirt!......

Two new pieces by Telmo Miel in Australia "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Dutch street art duo Telmo Miel just wrapped up two new large murals on the streets of Port Adelaide and Perth in Australia.

Their first piece above was painted in the precinct of the old Railway Workshops in Perth, Australia. The artwork was inspired by the area around it as the railway workshops supported thousands of families in Western Australia as they were still going, across several generations in many families. There were a lot of European migrants who have arrived to the workshops during the generations, all of them were with limited English language, and there were significant groups of Italian migrants in the workforce.

Their second piece below has been done for the Wonderwalls festival in Port Adelaide, Australia. It was inspired by many roadkills that happen every day, and this kid in the mural wanted to do something about it. With his polished helmet and red cape he is trying to save the day, and this piece has been called Knight in shining amor, the present-day use of this phrase is figurative, of course, and it refers back to the notion of gallant knights saving fair maidens in distress. This mural took the artists five days from start to finish.

The Importance of Vices and Entertainment | Tips for Survival Trade and Sanity Maintenance "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Keeping vices and entertainment devices as a small part of your go-bag isnt the strangest idea in the world. It has been weeks weeks since you saw another human being, weeks since you found a cache of ammunition or clean water, weeks since you ran out of food. You have a filter for water, and a few boxes of ammo, but you cant eat those and youre starving. Lucky for you, todays the day you come across a stranger, another vagabond in these forsaken times. And hes got some extra supplies.

The Importance of Vices and Entertainment

Of course, hes not just going to give them to you. He wants to trade, and that fancy water filter of yours looks mighty useful. He offers you half his food in exchange for the water filter. You flatly deny him without that filter you would have been dead days ago. So he asks what else you have. You offer him the ammunition, but he doesnt need any of that he is extremely well armed. So the deal stands: food for the water filter. Now you must decide between one life saving substance and another if only you had something else you could trade. If only you had something that was as good as cash that you could willingly part with.

Well, if youd packed a small supply of vices and entertainment youd be hunky-dory. These are the ultimate survival and trade supplies. Why? Because in a world where money is meaningless, and people are struggling every day to get the bare necessities, having tradable vices and forms of entertainment will be invaluable.

Guaviare: Colombias frontline in the countrys battle to stop deforestation in the Amazon "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

San Jos del Guaviare, Colombia - Flying over the gateway to the Amazon in Colombias Chiribiquite National Park, the scene below is a paradise of nature untouched. Rivers snake through dense forest, carving pristine beaches from the banks, while the only breaks in the treeline are from the rocks that soar up over the park. This area is one of the most important ecological zones in the world: the indigenous peoples who live here are uncontacted by the outside world and the ecosystems are so important for research that the park is always closed to visitors. Much of this region used to be as wild and as densely forested as this, but just beyond the protected park area patches of farmland that have been cut into the forest begin to appear. In some spots, the ground smolders from recent slash-and-burn clearings. On others you can see the pin-prick regularity of palm plantings, or herds of cattle. Theres a lot of deforestation," says pilot Samuel Nino, who from his cockpit 4,000 feet up regularly sees the clearances better than anyone on land. "They used to clear small parcels so that they would be hard to find and use them for growing coca, but now they are clearing for farming.

The Pioneering Physics TV Show, The Mechanical Universe, Is Now on YouTube: 52 Complete Episodes from Caltech "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In December, Caltech announced that the critically acclaimed TV series, The Mechanical Universe And Beyond, has been made available in its entirety on YouTube. Created at Caltech and aired on PBS from 1985-86, the 52-episode series offers an introduction to college-level physics, covering everything from the scientific revolution begun by Copernicus, to quantum theory. A university web page offers more details on the production:

The series was based on the Physics 1a and 1b courses developed by David Goodstein, the Frank J. Gilloon Distinguished Teaching and Service Professor and Professor of Physics and Applied Physics, Emeritus.

Each episode opens and closes with Goodstein lecturing to his freshman physics class in 201 E. Bridge, providing philosophical, historical, and often humorous insight into the days topic. The show also contains hundreds of computer animation segments, created by JPL computer graphics engineer James F. Blinn, as the primary tool of instruction. Dynamic location footage and historical re-creations are also used to stress the fact that science is a human endeavor

Although the series was designed as a college-level course, thousands of high school teachers across the US came to depend on it for instructional and inspirational use, Goodstein says. The level of instruction in the US was, and remains, abysmally low, and these 52 programs filled a great void.

You can stream all 52 episodes above. Or find them on Youtube and DailyMotion. They will also be added to our collection of Free Online Physics Courses, a subset of our collection, 1200 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.

Visit this Caltech website to get more information on the show.

Scientists find a host of toxic chemicals in name brand lipstick and other cosmetic products "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A study released by the University of California, Berkeley (UBC) School of Public health has found many conventional lipstick products to contain dangerously high levels of aluminum, cadmium, lead, and other toxins. Researchers tested over 30 popular lipstick products and found this to be the case. The study was published in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. Even women using minimal amounts of product still increase their risk of developing harmful health conditions like nerve damage and cancer by an alarming amount.

According to the study:

Most of the tested lip products contained high concentrations of titanium and aluminum. All examined products had detectable manganese. Lead was detected in 24 products (75%), with an average concentration of 0.36 0.39 ppm, including one sample with 1.32 ppm. When used at the estimated average daily rate, estimated intakes were > 20% of ADIs derived for aluminum, cadmium, chromium, and manganese. In addition, average daily use of 10 products tested would result in chromium intake exceeding our estimated ADI for chromium. For high rates of product use (above the 95th percentile), the percentages of samples with estimated metal intakes exceeding ADIs were 3% for aluminum, 68% for chromium, and 22% for manganese. Estimated intakes of lead were < 20% of ADIs for average and high use.

A daily intake of these cosmetics would result in a large exposure to chromium, a carcinogen that has been linked to stomach tumours.  Average use of these products could result in overexposure to aluminum, cadmium, and manganese. Exposure to high concentrations of manganese has been linked to high toxicity levels in the nervous system. Lead was also detected, and no level of lead exposure is safe for anybody.

Just finding these metals isnt the issue; its the levels that matter. Some of the toxic metals are occurring at levels that could possibly have an effect in the long term.

Katharine Hammond, professor of environmental health sciences and principal investigator in the study.

The amount of metals found definitely needs to be brought to the attention of health regulators. But we have a problem here, as health regulators are usually connected to the corporations that develop these products in the first place. The real solution is to just stop using them. We are sold on the idea that we need these beauty pro...

Bertrand Russell on Power-Knowledge vs. Love-Knowledge, the Two Faces of Science, and What Makes Life Satisfying "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In all forms of love we wish to have knowledge of what is loved, not for purposes of power but for the ecstasy of contemplation This may indeed be made the touchstone of any love that is valuable.

Bertrand Russell on Power-Knowledge vs. Love-Knowledge, the Two Faces of Science, and What Makes Life Satisfying

The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge. Neither love without knowledge, nor knowledge without love can produce a good life, the Nobel-winning English polymath Bertrand Russell (May 18, 1872February 2, 1970) wrote in his memoir at the end of a long and intellectually invigorating life a life the echoes of which reverberate through some of the most defining ideas of our time.

But Russell first formulated this animating ethos in his 1931 treatise The Scientific Outlook (public library). On the surface, this remarkably perceptive and prescient book can appear to be a critique of science, which may seem surprising coming from Russell in addition to being one of the twentieth centurys most lucid and influential philosophers, he was also a mathematician and logician himself, whose incisive writings on critical thinking and the will to doubt have rendered him an enduring patron saint of reason. But beneath such a surface impression is enormous depth of insight and a timeless, increasingly timely clarion call for nuance in distinguishing between the sort of knowledge driven by a greed for power and the higher-order wisdom that makes and keeps us human. In this light, although science is the books subject, its object is to examine the most elem...

Re-Distribution Project/Process Continues: NEW Earths Economy Stimulation for Crystalline Gridkeepers & Gatekeepers as Foundation Holders and Those Fulfilling Supporting Roles "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Yes, there is an economic gridwork/system for all on NEW Earth. Its been a project in the works for many linear years now. Its been a re-distributing of the funds and resources from old earth to NEW, just like the animals and Souls in Earthly forms walking, living, existing here too. Yes, this is a very real physical plane of existence.

Weve been observing (and experiencing) over many linear years as the structures and systems of the old collapse/deconstruct/fall, the simultaneous replacement of a whole new system (this is called materialization on a higher dimensional plane of existence/timeline as each exists the false matrix system that was built on hidden agendas and separation (human-self-first) consciousness

The old ley lines/gridwork of the old earth gone, the physical realities created/held together by unconscious programs continue to dissolve at an increasingly rapid rate for all still choosing to live in those realities (the physical body must be cleared/cleansed of the actual programming that created this by merging ones own energetic field of higher light consciousness (Soul/Higher Selves/Universes/Galaxies) into their physical earthly body form fully) in order to vibrate up/out/onto/across multiple/infinite dimensional planes of existences, while maintaining a physical body and continually anchoring lighter density realities and shaping them into physical form..

For all ascended beings, holding this vibration all of the time, realities are very different than they were in the days (vibrations) of the old.

Realities are dreamy, lucid and constantly shift about Union within also means Union with out. As your higher selves descend and take residence up inside of your body with your human you, your separation will be made visible for you to see it and dissolve it, integrate it, unify it and return all to love from within again. This merging process changes your DNA and genetics too. This process occurs over your entire human lifetime here. Not just one day or a week or a year. Its always been happening. Its only awareness and realization that are new.

As with all things on each dimensional plane of existence, there are jobs, families, animals, homes and all new systems already online. Each of you are responsible for achieving the vibrational frequency with your whole BEing and Body (Head/Heart/Every Cell) in order to become an INTEGRAL PART of NEW EARTHS structures, s...

Understanding Node.js Event-Driven Architecture "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Most of Nodes objectslike HTTP requests, responses, and streamsimplement the EventEmitter module so they can provide a way to emit and listen to events.

The simplest form of the event-driven nature is the callback style of some of the popular Node.js functionsfor example, fs.readFile. In this analogy, the event will be fired once (when Node is ready to call the callback) and the callback acts as the event handler.

Lets explore this basic form first.

Call me when youre ready, Node!

The original way Node handled asynchronous events was with callback. This was a long time ago, before JavaScript had native promises support and the async/await feature.

Callbacks are basically just functions that you pass to other functions. This is possible in JavaScript because functions are first class objects.

Its important to understand that callbacks do not indicate an asynchronous call in the code. A function can call the callback both synchronously and asynchronously.

For example, heres a host function fileSize that accepts a callback function cb and can invoke that callback function both synchronously and asynchronously based on a condition:

function fileSize (fileName, cb) {
if (typeof fileName !== 'string') {
return cb(new TypeError('argument should be string')); // Sync
  fs.stat(fileName, (err, stats) => {
if (err) { return cb(err); } // Async
    cb(null, stats.size); // Async

Note that this is a bad practice that leads to unexpected errors. Design host functions to consume callback either always synchronously or always asynchronously.

Lets explore a simple example of a typical asynchronous Node function thats written with a callback style:

const readFileAsArray = function(file, cb) {
fs.readFile(file, function(err, data) {
if (err) {
return cb(err);
    const lines = data.toString().trim().split('\n');
cb(null, lines);

readFileAsArray takes a file path and a callback function. It reads the file content, splits it into an array of lines, and calls the callback function with that array.

Heres an example use for it. Assuming that we have the file numbers.txt in the same directory with content like this:


If we have a task to count the odd numbers in that file, we can use readFileAsArray to simplify the code:



Induction and synchronised swimming "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

I love it when people remind me of brilliant ideas and analogies that I had forgotten.

A couple of weeks ago, one of my post-term pregnancy online course participants reminded me of the wonderful and well-loved midwife Mary Cronks analogy about induction of labour. It explains why it is that induction often takes far longer than when women go into labour spontaneously, and also why induction sometimes fails.

Mary would say that to imagine that labour, with all its different factors, like hormones and muscles and so on, is like a synchronised swimming team. It all works really beautifully together, she would say.

But induction of labour?

That is like throwing one of the swimmers in the pool and hoping the rest jump in!

Mary is also well known for having a collection of phrases which she taught women to use when their rights werent being respected, and you can read them here.

New report details enormous corruption, illegal logging along Vietnamese border with Cambodia "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

HO CHI MINH CITY - A new in-depth report from the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) shows that Vietnamese officials, companies and private individuals are smuggling enormous amounts of illegally logged timber from protected areas of Cambodia into Vietnam. The report, Repeat Offender: Vietnams persistent trade in illegal timber provides eye-opening details gleaned from months of undercover investigations in Cambodia and Vietnam by EIA investigators. EIA alleges that Vietnamese government officials are reaping huge financial benefits by facilitating large-scale logging in eastern Cambodia. Jago Wadley, senior forests campaigner at EIA, described the situation in the starkest of terms. This is the single largest log-smuggling operation that we have seen for years, Wadley stated in a press release which accompanied the report. Vietnam must address this weak approach to any agreement with the EU to combat illegal logging and the associated trade. Vietnamese representatives will meet in Brussels this month to finalize a Forest Law Enforcement, Governance and Trade (FLEGT) agreement with the EU. On paper the agreement would ensure that all timber exported to the EU from Vietnam has legal, verifiable origins. However, the EIA found in their investigation, which they conducted from November 2016 to March 2017, that Vietnamese government officials and security force personnel are major customers for illegally logged Cambodian timber.

On Disclosures of Fracking Chemicals Part I "IndyWatch Feed Enviro" and provide some answers

The Facts on Fracking Chemical Disclosure -, April 7, 2017

Q: Are the chemicals in fracking solution protected from being made public by a law passed while Dick Cheney was vice president?

A: Yes. A 2005 law bans the federal government from requiring companies to disclose fracking chemicals. But 28 states do require disclosure of some fracking fluids.


Is it true that the chemicals in fracking solution are protected from being made public by a law or bill passed by Congress while Dick Cheney was in President Bushs cabinet? Is it true that Cheney strong-armed members in Congress to pass the bill? Is it true that the fracking companies dont have to reveal the chemicals in fracking solution?


Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a method used to obtain natural gas and oil from rock formations underground. The process involves injecting water, sand and various chemicals into drilling wells at high pressure, releasing oil and gas that would otherwise be difficult to retrieve.

Fracking gained public attention after the technique led to a boom in U.S. oil and gas production. In 2000, around 26,000 fracked wells produced 3.6 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. In 2015, 300,000 fracked wells produced more than 53 billion cubic feet per day, according to the Energy Information Administration. The EIA also shows a similar increase for crude oil production over that time period.

Why Aged Cheese and Mushrooms Are so Good for Your Heart (and Make You Live Longer Too) "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Cheese can be an excellent source of nutrition, especially if made from unpasteurized grass fed milk and aged according to tradition. Among the many valuable nutrients in real cheese is vitamin K2, which is important for heart, brain and bone health. The highest amounts of vitamin K2 can be found in Gouda, Brie and Edam. Other cheeses with lesser but still significant levels of K2 include cheddar, Colby, hard goat cheese, Swiss and Gruyere.

Cheese also provides a cornucopia of other vitamins (including vitamins A, D, B2 and B12), minerals (including calcium, zinc and phosphorous), amino acids and protein, as well as high-quality saturated and omega-3 fats. In recent years, a number of studies have exonerated cheese (especially full-fat cheese), showing higher cheese consumption results in improved health and aids weight management. For example:

  • High-fat cheese has been shown to raise your high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol,1,2 thought to be protective against metabolic diseases and heart disease
  • Cheese consumption also helps prevent fatty liver and improves triglyceride and cholesterol levels3 parameters used to gauge your cardiovascular disease risk
  • Full-fat cheese can be useful for weight management,4 in part by ramping up your metabolism5
  • Roquefort cheese in particular has been linked to cardiovascular health and improved longevity, courtesy of its anti-inflammatory properties6,7

Now, researchers have discovered yet another major compound in many cheeses that helps explain its beneficial impact on your health.


How to Boost Collagen for Better Skin "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Whether or not theyll admit it, both men and women may catch a reflection of themselves and notice with dismay that their skin looks dull and tired, and see lines or sagging skin they werent aware of before. They might purchase creams or lotions in an effort to minimize these and other telltale signs of too much sun, not enough sleep, inadequate nutrients and other factors.

One of the biggest contributors to these and other signs of aging is the loss of collagen, an important protein you need to keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant. As a compound of essential amino acids, theres only one way to get collagen; your body cant produce it, so you must attain it through your diet.

Further, collagen is the most common and abundant of your bodys proteins, found only in human and animal tissue, specifically the connective tissues throughout your body, from your muscles, bones and tendons to your blood vessels and digestive system.

While most have heard of it in terms of skin elasticity, collagen benefits many areas of your body, including your hair and nails. One study shows that this protein comprises 30 percent of the total protein in your body, and a whopping 70 percent of the protein for your skin. Wellness Mama notes:

While collagen is beneficial to the entire body, it is most noticeably beneficial to the skin. This is because as a person ages, the epidermic (outer layer of skin) thins and loses elasticity in a process known as elastosis. As this happens, a person tends to show more signs of aging and acquire more wrinkles.1

Better Nutrition2 notes that your body contains more than 20 different types of collagen, but by your mid-20s, it begins to wane. By the time you reach your 80s, you have about four times less, which brings about the skin issues. But its not a given. There are ways to slow the rate of diminishing collagen levels and even build them back up.

How Collagen or the Lack Thereof Impacts Your Skin

Technically a polypeptide, collagen is also a long-chain amino acid composed of individual amino acids such as glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine. Threonine is another essential amino acid for collagen production. According to Vital Proteins:

The composition of collagen is considered unique given its high hydroxyproline content. If you lack t...

Schisandra: China's Most Potent Medicinal Berry "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

While it may sound like a fantasy planet or a new prescription drug, schisandra is neither, but may end up affecting the reliance some have on the latter.

Thats because schisandra, a berry that grows on woody, climbing vines in the cool subtropical forests of Chinas Upper Yangtze region and parts of Russia, is now a bona fide superfood. Known as a traditional curative for chronic coughs, incontinence, night sweats and insomnia for 2,000 years, the berry is gaining new attention.

Modern-day restaurants in China offer alcohol with a base of saturated schisandra (Schisandra chinensis) berries, which patrons top up from tall glass containers, like lemonade at an American picnic. But the flavor is not for the faint of heart. Amazingly, schisandra berries (sometimes spelled with a z) feature all five of the taste senses at once, each denoting its own medicinal application, which experts at Learning Herbs1 say can be determined by the flavor:

  • Sweet Sweet herbs, such as chai, an herb used to make a popular tea, help restore energy and balance your immune system
  • Salty High in minerals, an example of a salty herb is nettle, used to nourish, even as it exerts diuretic effects
  • Sour A perfect model for the sour taste, lemon water is prized for its ability to promote digestion and build strength and stamina
  • Bitter As herbs, bitters are used to stimulate digestion, treat inflammation and exert an oddly cooling, draining effect on your body, akin to drinking coffee
  • Pungent This taste is savory and spicy; cayenne is a good example

The main function for the five-flavored berry, or Wu Wei Zi, is medicinal, even though its been used as a base for everything from jams to juice. But as the Medicine Hunter2 quips, unlike goji or acai berries, Nobody eats this stuff with yogurt.

A Berry With Mental and Physical Benefits

Therapeutically speaking, the schisandra berry is especially revered in Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) because of its astounding health benefits. However, it first gained recognition in Russia in the 1960s after 20 years of studies helped place it in the National Pharmacopoeia of the USSR and in the State Register of Drugs.

Its initial notoriety was as an...

Meanwhile, the Trump administration continues its internal debate whether or not to renege on the Paris commitment made by the United States under President Obama.

But she pauses to answer my question. Heres the set up, I say: Under President Obama, the U.S. played the lead role in global climate negotiations since 2014, drawing China into the fold, while pushing for the historic Paris Agreement in 2015, when 196 nations pledged to reduce their carbon footprint. Under President Trump, U.S. leadership is waning, or could become oppositional, as the president allies himself with the fossil fuel industry and threatens withdrawal from Paris. China, meanwhile, looks poised to step into the leadership vacuum. How concerned are you? Kosonen responds: Obviously, we need the U.S. to engage actively in solving this problem [of global warming]. And thats what a clear majority of Americans want, too, across party lines. But it doesnt seem like Trump will listen to his people, his top scientists or even American business, which has

Red Dog Mine

Published May 8, 2017

17 Profound Quotes From the Dalai Lama That Will Change the Way You Think "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


The Dalai Lama is one of the most inspirational spiritual teachers living today. From the age of 16, he was inducted with enormous responsibility in the face of political issues in Tibet.

Yet despite the pressure, he has handled himself in the best possible manner by helping countless numbers of people change their lives for the better.

His philosophy on life is remarkable because it emphasizes compassion and kindness above all other traits. Its these virtues that lead to a fulfilling and peaceful life, according to the Dalai Lama.

So in times like these where everyone seems so divided, I thought who better to look to than the Dalai Lama for words of wisdom.

Below, Ive collated some of his most powerful quotes on living a compassionate life with love and kindness.

On hope

There is a saying in Tibetan, Tragedy should be utilized as a source of strength.
No matter what sort of difficulties, how painful experience is, if we lose our hope, thats our real disaster.

Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.

How to wake up

Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.

On love and compassion

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you cant help them, at least dont hurt them.

This is my simple religion. No need for temples. No need for complicated philosophy. Your own mind, your own heart is the temple. Your philosophy is simple kindness.

If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.

I believe compassion to be one of the few things we can practice that will bring immediate and long-term happiness to our lives. Im not talking about the short-term gratification of pleasures like sex, drugs or gamb...

Bill Shorten has kicked off Labors election campaign by launching the partys new policy, White Australia 2.0. The policy was launched via a television advertising campaign on Channel 9.

A jubilant Mr Shorten talked to The (un)Australian about the new policy, saying: We have listened to the people and we know that what they want is jobs for ordinary, everyday, white Australians.

When asked whether his policy and advertising campaign was offensive to those without white skin Mr Shorten responded: Look I think its fair to say our campaign reflects modern day Australia.

I, like you watch television shows like Home and Away and The Logies  and look at those, all you see is white faces.

Six More DAPL Cases Dismissed "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Bismarck Tribune

Six pipeline protesters who were among 126 arrested on Oct. 22 saw their cases dismissed this week.

Mark Labato, David Pakenham, Ronald Williamson, Lorenzo Serna, Victor Puertas and Sean Jordan were charged with criminal trespass and engaging in a riot in connection with a Dakota Access Pipeline protest in southern Morton County. Some had attached themselves that day to a vehicle found at the construction site.

Bruce Nestor, a Minnesota-based attorney affiliated with a group of attorneys representing the protesters, said he believes the other cases from that day also should be dismissed.

 Nestor represented Serna, a journalist with the volunteer media collective Unicorn Riot. Nestor said the Committee to Protect Journalists and other groups concerned with First Amendment rights had written letters arguing that Serna should not have been charged.

The dismissal does reflect that there was no factual or legal basis to charge him in the first place, regardless of whether he was a journalist, said Nester, adding he reviewed hours of video and hundreds of photographs from both police and protesters from that day that dont support the claim that a riot occurred. He also said there wasnt any proof that the property was posted against trespassing.

These cases should never have been filed, they never should have been scheduled for trial and they should have been dismissed long ago, he said.

Morton County Assistant States Attorney Brian Grosinger made motions to dismiss the six protesters cases. The cases were scheduled to go to trial this week.

French Elections The Macron (Diacritical Mark) wins Illuminati Symbolisms (Marks) abound!! "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

[Update: I added a clearer image of Macron below the pyramid with eye (from 09:04).]

Apparently the Macron DM (Diacritical Mark) won (was appointed?) by a large margin. So along the way today I saw this video (All seeing eye symbolism at Emmanuel Macron victory speech #NWO #LouvrePyramid) which pointed out Illuminati symbolism present in Macrons speech at the Louvre. So I viewed that video, then found the original he used, here (REPLAY. Discours intgral dEmmanuel Macron au Louvre). It appears the camera shots were chosen carefully so that much of the time, Macron himself was located directly under the eye of the Louvre Pyramid. According to my count, in that video, it occurred 17 times.

I also noted the following:

  • 00:07 Eiffel Tower appears illuminated red (red-orange?)
  • 00:28 Macron hands up, head under eye of pyramid (first of 17 appearances of this camera shot)
  • 09:35 Spotlights on the stage appear (in this view) to form a pyramid (several views of this)
  • 15:29 Crowd appears to be illuminated in red (this view also occurs several times)

In my view, this greatly supports the idea that Macron is the RIP (Rothschild Illuminati Puppet) President. Perhaps at some point the French people will wake up even more to whats happening on this planet and eventually, like the US, elect a president that is not so Illuminati-ated.

I place the videos below, so please feel free to view for yourself, and below those I place the screenshots I captured of those things.

TRAGIC: France Votes to Remain the Gayest Country "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Some things will just never change. Yesterday, France decisively voted to remain the Gayest Country on Earth.

The historically cuckold nation first managed to find a guy who was less of a man than the woman he was running against, and then went ahead and voted for him anyways.

Say what you want about the legitimacy of female leadership, but at least Marine Le Pen had the common sense to know that the globalist, gay, and Muslim agenda threatens the very foundation of the Western world freedom and democracy, ideas that the French famously stole from America.

Heres all you need to know about Frances new president, Emmanuel Macron: he married a woman who is twenty-four years his senior. Im not saying that raises questions about his sexuality, but folks, I think it answers some. Also, his wife teaches literature in Paris, which is the gayest job on earth.



Fortunately, France is a nation of pussies and they cant do anything to us. I mean have these guys ever won a war? Seriously, any type of war at any point in history. Even just an imperialist conquest on their own continent. Youd have to be a moron to think they have.

With that being said, I never stopped calling them freedom fries but if you did its time to start doing that again.

America is in good hands. I fully expect Macron to wet himself if he ever has the courage to meet with President Trump. Still, given the nefarious nature of the globalist, it wouldnt be a bad idea to arm the Statue of Liberty the ultimate symbol of isolationist American nationalism. An AR-15 should suffice.

Ill close by saying this directly to the people of France: if you ever find yourselves up against a powerful nation led by some so...

Cold Sore in Nose: Effective Natural Remedies that Actually Work "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Getting a cold sore in your nose can be a painful experience that causes an unsightly blister in your nose. Your nose is a very sensitive area and any kind of sore that oozes fluid and crusts over will cause a lot of discomfort. Cold sores in and around your nose are caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV-1). This is the same viral infection that results in cold sores on your lips and mouth.

The herpes simplex virus (HSV-1) is very contagious and the infection can be easily spread from your lips to your nose, and even to the roof of your mouth. One of the first signs that a cold sore is developing in your nose is a tingling and itching sensation. This leads to blisters forming that are very uncomfortable and painful. This may cause irritation and excess mucus in your nose. Itching your nose and constantly blowing your nose may make your symptoms worse.

Although there is no cure for the cold sore virus, there are many natural remedies that work to treat cold sore symptoms in your nose and lips. For example, raw honey, tea tree oil, vitamin C, and Lysine are all natural ingredients that help to treat painful symptoms of cold sores. Also, many cold sore suffers have found that reducing stress and building their immune system help to prevent cold sores forming in their nose and on their lips.

Before we look at the natural remedies for cold sores, lets examine the reasons why some people suffer from cold sores in their nose and some dont.

Causes and Symptoms of Cold Sore in Nose

Cold sores are sometimes called fever blisters and are caused by the HSV-1 virus (herpes simplex virus). According to Dr. Gregory Thompson on WebMD, once the herpes simplex virus enters your body, it stays there. The virus can lay dormant for weeks or months and then cause an outbreak of cold sores in your nose or lips.1

Dr. Thompson says that there are many factors that can trigger a cold sore outbreak. These could be stress, overexposure to the sun, a weakened immune system, or upper respiratory infections like the cold or flu.

Doctors from the Mayo Clinic say that the tell-tale symptoms of a cold sore are tingling and itching before a painful spot or bump appears in your nose or on your lips. This then turns into a blister that fills with fluid and becomes sore. Then the blister will burst and ooze fluid before crusting over.2

Sometimes clusters of cold sore blisters can form together and they can affect the inside of your nose and the outside of the nostrils. This may be accompanied by flu-l...


Bloodline of the Holy Grail The Hidden Lineage of Jesus Revealed "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Today we shall embark upon the time-honoured Quest for the Holy Grail. Some have called it the Ultimate Quest, but the Christian Church has condemned it as a heresy.

A Christian heresy is described as 'an opinion which is contrary to the orthodox dogma of the Christian bishops' and, in this regard, those other quests which comprise much of today's scientific and medical research are equally heretical.

The word 'heresy' is, in essence, nothing more than a derogatory label - a tag used by a fearful Church establishment that has long sought to maintain control of society through fear of the unknown.

A heresy can therefore define those aspects of philosophy and research which quest into the realms of the unknown and which, from time to time, provide answers and solutions that are quite contrary to Church doctrine.

5 More Lessons from the Animal Kingdom "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Nature has many wisdoms and lessons for those who are open to her teachings. 7 years ago I went through a major life change where I began to wake up. Fortunately, nature was there, patiently waiting for me. Animals are wonderful communicators and messengers who are more than willing to interact with those open to the possibility.

Here are 5 of the most profound lessons I have learned from the animal kingdom. This article is a follow up to my previous article, 5 Lessons from the Animal Kingdom. As Nature offers infinite wisdom to those who are listening, the list of lessons that can be drawn from our animal teachers is an endless one, but these are several more of the most profound lessons I have learned from the Animal Kingdom in the last 7 years.

Lesson #1: Always trust your instincts

This lesson was shared with me by a Lioness during the dream state (I am a dreamer, after all!) It was during a time when I was feeling very uneasy with someone who was becoming involved in my childrens lives, due to the fact that I am divorced and cant always control who they are around.

I had no logical reason to not like this person, but something about them just felt off. After weeks of trying to convince myself that I was just being paranoid, a Lioness visited me in a dream. She was walking with me and my children, and she was coming close enough to rub against them and lick their hands. My kids were at first a little uneasy about this, but I quickly assured them, Its ok, shes here to protect you. I then heard her say as she looked at me, Always trust your instincts.

When I awoke from that dream, I realized that my instincts had been right and I quickly took necessary steps to stop the involvement of this particular person in my childrens lives. Time has since proven that my instincts were indeed correct about this person, and I will not be doubting myself again.

Lionesses are fi...

Causes of Projectile Vomiting in Babies, Children, and Adults "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Vomiting is an unpleasant experience at the best of times, but projectile vomiting is especially distressing. Vomiting with tremendous force usually happens suddenly and the contents of the stomach can be projected for a few feet. Infants and newborn children are prone to projectile vomiting because of a condition that blocks food from entering the small intestine. However, adults can also suffer from severe vomiting that forcefully exits the mouth.

Throwing up involves sharp contractions of the abdominal muscles. If these stomach muscle spasms are especially strong, then the burst of vomiting can project stomach contents out of the mouth with tremendous force. Usually, nausea doesnt precede projectile vomiting, however, depending on the cause of the severe vomiting, a person may feel nauseous beforehand.

Some common reasons for projectile forceful vomiting are food poisoning, internal blockage, anxiety, or pressure on the brain.

In this article, you will find out what causes projectile vomiting in infants and toddlers and what you should do if this happens. Also, the article examines the reasons why adults can suddenly throw up with so much force that the vomit travels a distance. You will also learn what natural remedies are effective in treating bouts of severe forceful vomiting.

Causes of Projectile Vomiting in Infants

First of all, lets look at the medical conditions that can cause projectile vomiting in infants.

Pyloric stenosis

Infants can suffer from projectile vomiting that suddenly occurs after feeding if they have pyloric stenosis. This is a serious condition where the pylorus muscles at the bottom of the stomach prevent food from entering the small intestine. Pyloric stenosis usually causes forceful vomiting without any warning.

According to doctors from the Mayo Clinic, pyloric stenosis causes a baby to forcefully vomit up milk up to several feet away. Sometimes the infantile projectile vomiting is preceded by stomach contractions just after feeding. There usually isnt any bile in the vomit.

Doctors recommend visiting your babys doctor if there is projectile vomiting after feeding. This is because there are serious complications associated with pyloric stenosis. For example, frequent severe vomiting can cause dehydration, weight loss, and irritability.1

Dr. Gurvinder Rull on says that projectile vomiting in children caused by pyloric stenosis is often mistaken for gastroenteritis. Dr. Rull says that the force of the vomit is most impressive.2

Inconvenient Truths About Antipsychotics: A Response to Goff et al "IndyWatch Feed Health"

In my book The Bitterest Pills, I wrote of how many psychiatrists simply do not want to face up to the harms their treatments can produce. This is illustrated by the way the psychiatric establishment tried to avoid the implications of tardive dyskinesia, by suggesting it was a symptom of schizophrenia and ignoring the evidence that tardive dyskinesia involves cognitive impairment. Similarly, when it became obvious that some of the second generation antipsychotics caused massive weight gain and metabolic disturbance, mainstream psychiatric journals published articles suggesting that diabetes was linked with schizophrenia as well.

The suggestion that antipsychotics reduce brain volume is not new. Psychiatrist Peter Breggin made this claim over thirty years ago1, but was dismissed as a crank. Over the last 10 years, however, the evidence has become irrefutable. Some leading members of the psychiatric establishment, like the UKs Robin Murray, have even publicised their concern about it2.

Coupled with and possibly linked to this evidence of harm, doubts have started to mount that the benefits of long-term treatment with antipsychotics have not been as firmly established as is generally believed. The inadequacies of randomised trials of maintenance treatment have been highlighted, and the fact that there is little data on the overall impact of drug treatment when it is taken over the long periods of time that many patients are prescribed it for. Some evidence points towards the possibility that some people may do better if they stop or reduce their antipsychotic treatment, rather than continue on it long-term. These points have been raised by several mainstream psychiatrists3, as well as the usual suspects, including me4!

The paper by Donald Goff and seven other leading psychiatrists published in the American Journal of Psychiatry on May 5th is an attempt to rebut these concerns and re-establish the good reputation of antipsychotics...

RSPO freezes palm oil companys operations in Papua "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The worlds biggest sustainable palm oil association has frozen the operations of one of its most prominent members on concessions in Indonesia because of failures to meet its standards on new planting. The Complaints Panel of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) issued a stop-work order for seven subsidiaries of Goodhope Asia Holdings as a result of poor quality audits and insufficient documentation required under its New Planting Procedure (NPP) rules. The Singapore-based palm oil company, an arm of Sri Lankas Carson Cumberbatch, has been linked to various cases of environmental and human rights abuses in Indonesia, including allegations of grabbing land from an indigenous community in Papua province on the island of New Guinea, where the industry is quickly expanding. The RSPOs action comes just weeks after a group of leading environmental and indigenous rights NGOs hit out at the body for allowing a Goodhope subsidiary to post public notification of new planting plans, which they claimed were incomplete, substandard, insufficient, and in places factually untrue. In a letter to Goodhope sustainability director Edi Suhardi, the RSPO Complaints Panel explained that an independent review had found that High Conservation Value (HCV) assessments conducted for its subsidiaries PT Nabire Baru and PT Agrajaya Baktitama were of a poor standard. RSPO members must submit an HCV assessment prior to any establishment or expansion of a plantation, in order to identify areas that cannot be cleared such as virgin rainforests without violating the bodys standards for ethical palm oil

Eric Sprott Warns Of Major Sell Off In Gold Mining Stocks As Top ETF Is Forced To Rebalance Holdings Huge Profits To Follow "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

If youve been watching the gold mining sector lately then you may have noticed a recent dip in prices. While this may normally be a sign of problems in the space, as Eric Sprott points out in his latest interview with SGT Reportthe reason behind the down-move is actually the opposite of what you may think. As Sprott explains, the popularity of one of the worlds largest gold related Exchange Traded Funds (ETF), the VanEck GDXJ, which is designed specifically to track junior gold mining companies, has led to massive inflows of cash from investors. That, of course, is a good thing for the precious metals sector as whole. The short-term downside is that the ETF grew in popularity so quickly, that it has too much cash and not enough places to put it. The reason for this is that regulatory rules limit how much the GDXJ ETF can invest in any single company currently at 20%.

What this means is that by June 17, the GDXJ ETF must re-balance its entire portfolio by way of selling junior mining company shares before it can re-invest those funds into new holdings. And as you may have guessed, that has put serious selling pressure on some mining companies that are currently being held by the fund. But the selling pressure, says Sprott, will be short-lived and has actually created a unique and potentially very profitable scenario for precious metals investors:

The problem that VanEck found with the GDXJ was that there was too much interest in it their standard was they didnt want to own companies with a market cap in excess of $1.8 Billion In order invest as many funds as were flowing into it they ended up owning large concentrations of ownership in the companies Things became very complicated for the GDXJ The premise is that the buying interest in junior gold stocks is causing the change 

The stocks that exist in the fund up to June 17 Most of them, their weightings will fall to about 50% Which means that the ETF has to sell So youre getting this rebalancing People are acting in the market to sell ahead of the trade on June 17 Its putting pressure on the stocks and ultimately when all this is over these stocks are going to go back to where they were.

Soft Drinks and Sports Drinks: Would You Drink Flame Retardant? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

If you drink soft drinks or sports drinks, such as Mountain Dew or Gatorade, keep reading.  Since the Environmental Health News published this story , it had been picked up by Gizmodo (you can read that story here), The Huffington Post (you can read that story here), Scientific American, and many others.

Our story begins with the chemical element called bromine.  Bromine is a toxic, corrosive liquid named after the Greek word for stench (bromos).  Pure bromine is a dark red color and gives off an extremely unpleasant odor.  It is considered a hazardous material because it causes severe burns to the skin and its vapor is a strong irritant to the eyes, nose, throat.  Although free bromine doesnt occur on its own in nature, stores of it exist in the ocean, and it can be extracted through a chemical process.

To brominate something is to combine it with bromine.   Somewhere along the line, scientists decided to brominate vegetable oil and found that the resulting compound brominated vegetable oil  worked really well as a flame retardant for plastics, a lead-eating additive for gasoline, a swimming pool sanitizer, etc.

Around the world, the use of brominated vegetable oil (BVO) as a flame retardant is raising health concerns.   Research shows that mammals exposed to brominated vegetable oil store up bromine in fat and muscle tissue.  A study of 20 American mothers found that all had detectable levels of brominated flame retardant in their breast milk.

Because bromine is a member of the halogen group, it displaces iodine.  Iodine is a requirement to human life, and especially important in thyroid functioning.  A deficiency of iodine is considered one of the leading causes of preventable mental disability.  In animal studies, BVO exposure has caused reproductive damage; neurological damage; severe behavioral problems; and permanent organ damage to the heart, kidneys, and testicles.

Most countries are clear on the fact that BVO is NOT a food. More than 100 countries have banned its use in food, including Europe, Japan, and India, and many are working to ban its use altogether as a flame retardant in plastics, etc.  The United States missed the memo and approved BVO as a food additive.

In 1970, unable to ignore serious health concerns, the FDA pulled brominated vegetable oil from its GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe)...


The 5 Biggest Threats To Humanity Exposed "IndyWatch Feed Health"



These individuals and families are the real people behind our political corruption, our planets destruction, and our economic enslavement. Its time the world learns their names.

With attention squarely focused on the criminality of politicians, particularly that of the US presidential candidates, its easy to overlook the people really responsible for all this chaos. Much of the US political landscape for over a hundred years, and arguably long before, has been controlled by a small minority of wealthy families and individuals with a specific agenda. Through political and economic machinations over the years, these groups and their minions have funded both sides of wars and profited from them. They own the corporations who pollute our planet and exploit us all. They own the banks which make us slaves to imaginary debt. They own the politicians and police forces that are meant to serve us, yet they seek to undermine us and our democracy at every turn. Regardless of where you live, the following people are working against all of us, seeking only to procure still more power and influence and control every aspect of our lives. Its about time we learned their names.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Pays Your Doctor A $40,000 Bonus For Fully Vaccinating 100 Patients Under The Age of 2 "IndyWatch Feed Health"

If you want to be sure your pediatrician has your childs best interest, this is mandatory reading. Pediatricians around the country have begun refusing to accept families who opt out of some or all vaccines. Reason why? Well, all doctors are compensated by the amount of vaccines they are able to administer to their patients. We have discovered the Blue Cross Blue Shield doctor incentives booklet 2016-BCN-BCBSM-Incentive-Program-Booklet that shows the payouts given per vaccines and its astonishing!

Insurance companies pay pediatricians massive bonuses based on the percentage of children who are fully vaccinated by age 2.

So how much money do doctors really make from vaccines? The average American pediatrician has 1546 patients, though some pediatricians see many more. The vast majority of those patients are very young, perhaps because children transition to a family physician or stop visiting the doctor at all as they grow up. As they table above explains, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays pediatricians $400 per fully vaccinated child. If your pediatrician has just 100 fully-vaccinated patients turning 2 this year, thats $40,000. Yes, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays your doctor a $40,000 bonus for fully vaccinating 100 patients under the age of 2. If your doctor manages to fully vaccinate 200 patients, that bonus jumps to $80,000. 

But heres the catch: Under Blue Cross Blue Shields rules, pediatricians lose the whole bonus unless at least 63% of patients are fully vaccinated, and that includes the flu vaccine. So its not just $400 on your childs headit could be the whole bonus. To your doctor, your decision to vaccinate your child might be worth $40,000, or much more, depending on the size of his or her practice.

If your pediatrician recommends that your child under the age of 2 receive the flu vaccineeven though the flu vaccine has never been studied in very young children and evidence suggests that the flu vaccine actually weakens a persons immune system over the long termask yourself:  Is my doctor more concerned with selling me vaccines to keep my child healthy or to send his child to private school?



Why Being Soft-Hearted in the Modern World Is a Strength, not a Weakness "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In a society where aggression and independence are revered, soft-hearted people are sometimes viewed with suspicion. But kindness can be a superpower.

Our society makes a big deal of people who achieve physical acts of courage like climbing mountains or risking their lives to save others. But there is a different kind of heroism that is often overlooked.

Soft-hearted people are not weak; in fact, quite the opposite. Kindness and generosity are gifts that can truly make our world a better place.

Why is kindness viewed with suspicion?

Soft-hearted people are viewed with suspicion by those who believe everyone is out for whats in it for them in life. When someone acts kindly, it can sometimes be met with suspicion and questions such as what do they really want? or what are they up to?

So, is it true that kindness always has an ulterior motive? While some people engage in good deeds to ease their conscience, gain approval or impress others, I think that true kindness and soft-heartedness do exist.

The ego and the selfish gene

We have been taught, based on the work of psychologists such as Freud and biologists such as Richard Dawkins, that human beings are incapable of true generosity. The idea is that we are all out to satisfy our egos and pass on our genes.

Freud believed that for most of our adult lives, we want to protect ourselves and our egos. We fight for our place in the world, our share of the goodies and to achieve recognition from others while having plenty of sex to pass on our genes. Dawkins, in his book The Selfish Gene, suggests that humans, like other animals, simply want to pass on their genes, too.

But this misses an important point about human nature. Humans have always worked together for the greater good of the tribe or the group. There have always been humans who have helped those less well off than themselves, i...

The Story Behind Gauguins Biographic Noa Noa "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

51R4bkIkHULOn the 8th of May 1903, the iconic French Post-Impressionist painter Paul Gauguin died in Atuona, Marquesas Islands, French Polynesia. In 1891, Gauguin sailed to French Polynesia allegedly to escape European civilization and everything that is artificial and conventional. As a record of his travels, he ended up writing a book titled Noa Noa describing his experiences in Tahiti. In past decades, more and more allegations by modern critics point to the fact that the contents of the book were fantasized. (Cotter, Holland. The Self-Invented Artist. The New York Times. Retrieved 9 December 2010.)  

It turns out that Gauguins move to the islands was a bit of a last resort in the artists life. It came as a result of very bad fortune in his working and personal life. By 1890, his long-suffering wife Matte had thrown him out and several dealers dropped him. He owed many people money and was constantly looking for new finance enhancing opportunities. So, in 1891, when he had the chance to travel to Tahiti to paint illustrations for the most popular novel of the day, Pierre Lotis The Marriage of Loti, he welcomed it without hesitance. Moreover, he staged his...

Woman admitted to hospital following failed womb-selfie "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A woman from Los Angeles has been admitted to hospital with severe pelvic injuries after storing a smartphone in her vagina for over three months in an attempt to encourage her unborn child to take a selfie.

Jane Wanarki (19), is understood to have been seriously dissatisfied with the picture resolution of her 26-week ultrasound scan, describing her child as looking like a fu*!ing bean or something and decided to take matters into her own hands. After purchasing and inserting the smartphone, she is then reported to have spent up to five hours a day providing advice and encouragement to her foetus on how to take a photograph of its own face and then return the phone to her.

It was really weird, said friends of the teenager. She would be sitting on the couch saying things like, just point and click, just point and click for ages, and then storm out of the room shouting Jesus Christ! Its not f*@ing rocket science! Do you know how much I spent on that phone, you selfish little b*@ard!. We all thought she was, like, having a breakdown or something, but I guess this explains it all now.

American medical authorities are becoming increasingly concerned about the womb-selfie craze which appears to be sweeping the nation, with up to 25 hospital admissions being reported weekly, as expectant mothers increasingly vie against one another for the best photographs of their unborn children and try and provide them with an early advantage in the increasingly competitive world of social media marketing.

We think that she was trying to give him an edge by ensuring that he had an Instagram account at the earliest possible opportunity, said Dr. Kyle Larston, a consultant obstetrician who was treating Miss Wanarki. However, the dangers of her actions are clear. Ladies, please, just be sensible. If you think youre going to help yourself or your child by ramming a Samsung Galaxy up your hoo-ha, then I really cant even begin to explain how wrong you are.

Cory Bernardi Spends Weekend On Couch With Tim Tams After Being Dumped By The Media "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A teary Cory Bernardi has spent the whole weekend in his tracky dacks working his way through a double sized packet of Tim Tams and watching Pretty Woman on Netflix after learning that the media is just not that into him.

I really thought this was it, the media was the one and we were going to be together forever, said a blubbering Conservative Party leader as he sipped the last of a bottle of red and hugged the doona closer. The media tried to tell me its thing with that hussy Mark Latham was over years ago and not to worry, that it just went around to his place to talk, and then I open the papers and theres Mark Latham all over the media.

Cory leapt up in hope every time the phone rang but it was all wrong numbers and opinion polls, said Bernardis flatmates Dennis Hood and Robert Brokenshire. We offered to take him out dancing on Saturday night and kept telling him that he was beautiful and could do a lot better than the Australian media. We suggested he give Crikey a call but Cory said no, he only wants to be seen with the real media.

Bernardi fell asleep late on Sunday night clutching an old copy of the Adelaide Advertiser to his chest whilst listening to Not Pretty Enough by Kasey Chambers on his i-pod.

PMID: 28367927 Abstract Title:  Beneficial Effects of Lemon Balm Leaf Extract on In Vitro Glycation of Proteins, Arterial Stiffness, and Skin Elasticity in Healthy Adults. Abstract:  Glycation, a non-enzymatic glycosylation of proteins, induces tissue damage in association with various diseases and aging phenomena. Pentosidine, an advanced glycation end product, is involved in aging phenomena such as tissue stiffness. In this study, we aimed to find a potent anti-glycation food material and to verify its health benefits by clinical trial. From among 681 hot water plant extracts, lemon balm (Melissa officinalis; LB) leaf extract was selected and revealed to have more potent inhibitory activity for pentosidine formation than a representative anti-glycation agent, aminoguanidine. Rosmarinic acid (RA), a typical polyphenol in Lamiaceae plants, was identified as a major active component in LB extract (LBE). Furthermore, LBE or RA dose-dependently suppressed glycation-associated reactions such as increased fluorescence, yellowing of collagen fiber sheets, and degeneration of the fibrous structure of elastin fiber sheets. An open-label, parallel-group comparative trial was conducted in 28 healthy Japanese subjects aged 31-65 y who consumed LB tea (LB group) or barley tea (Control group) for 6 wk. The LB group showed significant reductions in brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity, reflecting arterial stiffness, and b* (yellow) color values in forearm skin compared with the Control group. A gender-stratified analysis revealed that cheek skin elasticity was significantly improved in the LB group compared with the Control group only in female subjects. It is concluded that the hot water extract of LB leaf has the potential to provide health benefits with regard to glycation-associated tissue damage in blood vessels and skin of healthy adults.

Melissa officinalis acidic fraction protects cultured cerebellar granule neurons against beta amyloid-induced apoptosis and oxidative stress. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cell J. 2017 ;18(4):556-564. Epub 2016 Sep 26. PMID: 28042540 Abstract Title:  Melissa officinalis Acidic Fraction Protects Cultured Cerebellar Granule Neurons Against Beta Amyloid-Induced Apoptosis and Oxidative Stress. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Extracellular deposition of the beta-amyloid (A) peptide, which is the main finding in the pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD), leads to oxidative damage and apoptosis in neurons. Melissa officinalis (M. officinalis) is a medicinal plant from the Lamiaceae family that has neuroprotective activity. In the present study we have investigated the protective effect of the acidic fraction of M. officinalis on A-induced oxidative stress and apoptosis in cultured cerebellar granule neurons (CGN). Additionally, we investigated a possible role of the nicotinic receptor.MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study was an in vitro experimental study performed on mice cultured CGNs. CGNs were pre-incubated with different concentrations of the acidic fraction of M. officinalis for 24 hours, followed by incubation with A for an additional 48 hours. CGNs were also pre-incubated with the acidic fraction of M. officinalis and mecamylamin, followed by incubation with A. We used the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5- diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay to measure cell viability. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity, reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, lipidperoxidation, and caspase-3 activity were measured after incubation. Hochst/annexin Vfluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)/propidium iodide (PI) staining was performed to detect apoptotic cells.RESULTS: The acidic fraction could protect CGNs from A-induced cytotoxicity. Mecamylamine did not abolish the protective effect of the acidic fraction. AChE activity, ROS production, lipid peroxidation, and caspase-3 activity increased after A incubation. Preincubation with the acidic fraction of M. officinalis ameliorated these factors and decreased the number of apoptotic cells.CONCLUSION: Our results indicated that the protective effect of the acidic fraction of M. officinalis was not mediated through nicotinic receptors. This fraction could protect CGNs through antioxidant and anti-apoptotic activities.

Phrase Political Correctness Gone Mad Insensitive To Mad People, Committee Finds "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The often-used term political correctness gone mad should be changed to political correctness that has become anxious or psychologically distressed, a government committee has recommended.

The four-month study, which included a panel of 28 experts, concluded that the term mad had the potential to stigmatise those with psychological issues and was out of step with current attitudes.

The report has led to outrage on social media channels, with many saying it is yet another example of political correctness gone mad. Insensitive arseholes.

Health Impact News

Ty and Charlene Bollingers famous life-changing Truth About Cancer docuseries has been viewed by millions of people worldwide.

Originally produced in 2015, you will learn about safe and effective cancer cures from 131 doctors, scientists, and experts who know how to treat and cure cancer. This replay is offered FREE to the public starting May 16, 2017, and you can register here.

The information you will learn is mostly censored and banned in the United States when it comes to cancer treatment, as only pharmaceutical products approved by the FDA are allowed to treat cancer in the U.S.

Unfortunately, the pharmaceutical industry and the U.S. government has lost the war on cancer.

At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.

The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the U.S. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.

Johanna Budwig: German Scientist Who Created an Effective Anti-Cancer Diet "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Health Impact News

The Budwig Diet for cancer has been around since the 1950s. But it is suppressed and inaccurately marginalized, sometimes even among alternative health writers and practitioners.

Flaxseed oil and cottage cheese for curing cancer? Youve gotta be kidding!

But its no joke, and its not a fraud.

Many have been skeptical of the Budwig Diet. Dr. Andrew Weil considered it fanciful and without sufficient recorded scientific evidence. Even Mike Vrentas of the Independent Cancer Research Foundation (ICRF) originally thought it was insignificant as an alternative method for curing cancer, at first.

The ICRF is truly independent and sponsors the online Cancer Tutor.

Fortunately, Mike Vrentas views changed to the positive after deeper research into the science involved and testimonies from healed former cancer patients around the world. Vrentas and the CancerTutor are now advocates of the Budwig Diet along with several other alternative healing protocols.

Though not the complete diet, the daily medicinal staple of the Budwig Diet does involve cold pressed organic flaxseed oil mixed with low-fat cottage cheese, originally quark, a type of cheese more common in Central and Eastern Europe than North America.

This is not merely a fashionable South Beach type of diet for weight loss. It has cured thousands of not only cancer but other chronic and life threatening maladies as well over the past 50 plus years. The original flaxseed oil mixed into quark was not a culinary quirk presented by a happy homemaker.

Long-term bicycle riding improves the quality of life and reduces the severity of depression in patients suffering from chronic hemodialysis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Neuropsychiatr Dis Treat. 2017 ;13:91-100. Epub 2016 Dec 28. PMID: 28096677 Abstract Title:  Long-term bicycle riding ameliorates the depression of the patients undergoing hemodialysis by affecting the levels of interleukin-6 and interleukin-18. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Hemodialysis patients with depression have a higher risk of death and hospitalization. Although there is pharmacological management for the depression of hemodialysis patients, the adverse effect of the drug limits the use. The nonpharmacological way, bicycle riding, may be an effective way for the therapy of the depression in hemodialysis patients. However, the underlying mechanism of this relationship is still not fully explained, while interleukin-6 (IL-6) and interleukin-18 (IL-18) are associated with depression and exercise. Thus, the effects of bicycle riding on the levels of the interleukin were explored.PARTICIPANTS AND METHODS: One hundred and eighty-nine patients with chronic hemodialysis were selected and randomly assigned to three groups of medicine (MG, received 20-mg escitalopram daily), medicine and aerobic exercise (MAG, received 20-mg escitalopram daily and bicycle riding six times weekly), and only aerobic exercise (AG, received 20-mg placebo daily and bicycle riding six times weekly). The whole experiment lasted for 18 weeks. The quality of life (36-Item Short Form Health Survey) and depression severity according to criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition [DSM-IV] were measured before and at the end of this study. The serum levels of IL-6 and IL-18 were measured by an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay kit.RESULTS: The quality of life was improved and depression severity was reduced significantly in the MAG and AG groups when compared with the MG group (P

Did Recent NKorean Missile Test 'Fail' Or Was It Really A Perfect EMP Test? According To South Korean Sources, Recent Test 'Failed' At Ideal Height For EMP Attack "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Story submitted to All News Pipeline by Dr. Peter Vincent Pry

"An EMP attack entails detonating a nuclear weapon at high-altitude, above the atmosphere, so no reentry vehicle is necessary to penetrate the atmosphere and blast a city. The area of effect of an EMP is so enormous a warhead detonated at an altitude of 30 kilometers will generate an EMP field on the ground having a radius of 600 kilometers  that an accurate guidance system is unnecessary.

And the mass destruction of electronics and blackout of electric grids over such a vast region would be so injurious that missile reliability matters little only one nuclear missile needs to work to deliver an EMP attack against an entire nation." Quote from ANP website:

Treadmill exercise ameliorates cognitive impairment and white matter injury from blood-brain barrier disruption induced by cerebral hypoperfusion. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Neurosci Lett. 2017 Jan 18 ;638:83-89. Epub 2016 Dec 9. PMID: 27956237 Abstract Title:  The ameliorative effects of exercise on cognitive impairment and white matter injury from blood-brain barrier disruption induced by chronic cerebral hypoperfusion in adolescent rats. Abstract:  Vascular dementia is the progressive change in blood vessels that leads to neuronal injuries in vulnerable areas induced by chronic cerebral hypoperfusion (CCH). CCH induces disruption of blood-brain barrier (BBB), and this BBB disruption can initiate the cognitive impairment and white matter injury. In the present study, we evaluated the effect of treadmill exercise on the cognitive impairment, white matter injury, and BBB disruption induced by CCH. Vascular dementia was induced by permanent bilateral common carotid arteries occlusion (BCCAO) in rats. The rats in the exercise group were made to run on a treadmill for 30min once a day for 14 weeks, starting 4 weeks after birth. Our results revealed that treadmill exercise group was alleviated the cognitive impairment and myelin degradation induced by CCH. The disruption of BBB after CCH indicates degradation of occludin, zonula occluden-1 (ZO-1), and up-regulation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Treadmill exercise may provide protective effects on BBB disruption from degradation of occludin, ZO-1, and overexpression of MMP-9 after CCH. These findings suggest that treadmill exercise ameliorates cognitive impairment and white matter injury from BBB disruption induced by CCH in rats. The present study will be valuable for means of prophylactic and therapeutic intervention for patients with CCH.

The Rockwell Museum Debuts New Blanket Stories Exhibit by Marie Watt "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Marie Watt, Seneca Native artist, pictured with her latest sculpture Blanket Stories: Western Door, Salt Sacks and Three Sisters that debuted today at The Rockwell Museum in Corning, NY. (PRNewsfoto/The Rockwell Museum)

Published May 7, 2017

CORNING, NEW YORK  The Rockwell Museum today announced the opening of its newest exhibition, Blanket Stories: Western Door, Salt Sacks and Three Sisters by artist Marie Watt. A monumental new sculpture, created with blankets, quilts, and afghans contributed by residents of the greater Corning and Upstate Finger Lakes communities of New York, will be on display until September 5, 2017.

Blanket Stories: Western Door, Salt Sacks, and Three Sisters is a collaboration between artist Marie Watt, The Rockwell Museum, and the greater Corning, NY, community, as well as an ongoing series in the artists practice. Watt who draws upon biography, history, Iroquois teachings, and Seneca proto-feminism was invited by The Rockwell to gather stories that tether people to place and community

Each story is represented by a textile in this sculpture. The textiles were contributed in response to a call for blankets and their stories from the community including local residents, the greater Finger Lakes region, and friends of The Rockwell. While each blanket in this column represents one persons story, it also serves as a marker for the collective memory of a larger extended family. Each story communicates the universal nature of our shared human condition and has the potential to unite us.

Blankets are everyday objects. We take them for granted, yet as we use them, they quietly record our histories: a lumpy shape, a worn binding, mended patches, says Watt. Every blanket holds a story, and with the secondhand and thrift-store blankets I use in much of my work, I can only guess at the story. But when I can work with contributed blankets and learn about the stories attached to...

The Crisis Has Become Pandemic System To Collect Defaulted Student Loans Is No Longer Functioning "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at

The system used by the Dept. of Education to collect on defaulted student loans came to a standstill in the last month, leaving an estimated 91,000 accounts in limbo, when the agency ordered debt collectors under contract to stop making collections on accounts.


As Consumerists Ashlee Kieler reports, consumers who expected their student loan payments to be deducted from their bank accounts this month have reportedly found the funds untouched, and their calls to the companies unanswered thanks to a Department of Educations order prohibiting the debt collection companies from working on default accounts in response to two lawsuits against the agency.

The strange turn of events began with a lawsuit filed by two debt collection companies, who claim they were unfairly were fired by the Obama-era Education Department for poor performance. On March 29, the judge issued a temporary restraining order that prevented any new defaulted borrowers from being assigned to debt collectors and put into rehabilitation programs. Instead, the borrowers have piled up inside the departments system, waiting.

On April 21, the government ordered the debt collectors involved in the suit to stop work altogether on defaulted accounts: no phone calls, no withdrawals from student accounts, nothing.

The Education Department and the Justice Department are partly to blame for unnecessarily throwing a wrench into the entire defaulted loan system, one attorney with knowledge of the case told BuzzFeed News, because theyve been unable to come to a resolution that allows the loan system to kick back into gear.

Editorial: Religious Liberty or Religious Bigotry? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

UNITED STATES President Donald J. Trumps latest executive order is titled Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty. While some readers may be scratching their heads wondering why the current administration feels the need to promote the U.S. Constitutions guaranteed First Amendment rights, others may feel that the little age-old document needed a good dusting off, and a signal boost.

However, the executive is order is not aimed at simply lifting up what is already clearly written into national law, but rather it is aimed, theoretically, at defining it, directing it, and, as some believe, suffocating it.

President Donald J. Trump is applauded by gathered religious leaders, Thursday, May 4, 2017, as he displays his signature on the Executive Order Promoting Free Speech and Religious Liberty. (Official White House Photo by D. Myles Cullen).

During the election process, Trump and running mate Mike Pence advocated for the dismantling of the now infamous Johnson Amendment. As we reported in the past, the Johnson Amendment was implemented in 1954 to prevent nonprofit organizations from influencing politics. All organizations with federal tax-exempt status are limited in their ability to engage in various election and lawmaking processes. This includes both secular and religious institutions.

At the 2016 Republican National Convention, Trump said:

At this moment, I would like to thank the evangelical and religious community in general who have been so good to me and so supportive.You have much to contribute to our politics, yet our laws prevent you from speaking your minds from your own pulpits. An amendment, pushed by Lyndon Johnson many years ago, threatens religious institutions with a loss of their tax-exempt status if they openly advocate their political views. I am going to work very hard to repeal that language and protect free speech for all Americans.

Since that point, the Johnson Amendment has become one of the focal points of the administrations work. It wasnt until Thursday that Trump acted on his campaign promise, or at the very least, moved toward acting on that promise.

Despite this recent push, the debate over the need for additional religious-freedom legislation did not begin with the 2016 election cycle. In fact, Vice President Mike Pence was embroiled in...

Kushner Bans Journalist from Event Offering Chinese Immigrant Visas In Exchange for Money "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Organisers barred journalists on Sunday from a publicly advertised event in Shanghai that offered Chinese investors the chance to get U.S. immigrant visas if they put money in a real estate project linked to the family of President Donald Trumps son-in-law.

The two-tower luxury apartment complex in New Jersey, One Journal Square, is being developed by KABR Group and the Kushner Companies, which until recently was headed by senior White House advisor Jared Kushner, the husband of Trumps daughter Ivanka.

The developers are seeking to raise $150 million, or 15.4 percent of funding for the project, from investors through the EB-5 visa programme, according to marketing materials posted by the events organiser, immigration agency Qiaowai.

The controversial EB-5 programme allows wealthy foreigners to, in effect, buy U.S. immigration visas for themselves and families by investing at least $500,000 in certain development projects.

Mystery Booms In South Carolina, Sonic Boom In Florida Said to be from X37B "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Lowcountry residents reported hearing a loud boom Friday morning, which could be another of the legendary and mysterious booms reported as far back as the 1800s.

A sonic boom that rattled Central Florida early Sunday morning was no secret. What caused it was a secret military mission ending at Kennedy Space Center. The U.S. Air Force tweeted Sunday morning that The Air Force #X37B #OTV4 has returned from orbit and landed safely at @NASAKennedy. The X37B is a secret military unmanned mini-space shuttle, which as been orbiting the Earth for nearly two years on its fourth flight. There were rumors back in February that the X37B might be returning to Florida.

Otherworldly Infrared Photography Transforms Alaskan Fjord into Another Planet "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Infrared Landscape Photography

Director and photographer Bradley G. Munkowitz, aka GMUNK, captures nature's stunning beauty in new lightliterally. Through infrared photography, he reinterprets the landscapes we think we know and transforms them into places that look like they're from another planet. Where we'd expect to see green trees and blue waters are tinged in shades of orange, pink, and purple, with the low-laying clouds now resembling fields of steaming lava. Each image is devoid of people, but these desolate locales entice brave explorers to waft through the smoke and further onto their shores.

Munko calls this series InfraMunk vs. Tracy Arm Fjord. Tracy Arm is a fjord off the coast of Alaska, which is known for its sheer rock walls towering over a mile high, as well as the states largest icebergs. In the summer of 2016, GMUNK departed on a small vessel towards the visually stunning place and snapped the pictures using his FujiFilm X-T1 IR and infrared photography filters. Coupled with vintage Nikon manual focus lenses, it imbued the scenery with new meaning.

Although InfraMunk vs. Tracy Arm Fjord is awe-inspiring, its hardly the end of GMUNK's exploration into infrared landscape photography. Check out #inframunk on Instagram to see more places tinged with this unusual color palette.

Great handmade 24x105 panoramic camera by Sven Keller "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

I first noticed Sven Keller's site couple of years ago when Olaf Matthes pointed it out to me. Mr. Sven Keller is from Germany and he had self fabricated quite a few cameras.

One of the interesting designs include a fused body 35mm panoramic camera. He joined three bodies of Dacora Super Dignette cameras to form an extended film path that can yield a 24x105 mm exposure. The lens cone was salvaged from a Mamiya Press 6X9 camera. Different Mamiya lenses were used for the camera.

Further details of the camera can be found from this webpage.

I extend my sincere thanks to Sven for allowing me to use the pics of his camera from his website.

Chinese Internet Giant Opens Artificial Intelligence Lab in US: Spent Billion on Tesla Shares "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A Chinese internet giant called Tencent (one of the largest corporations in China) recently announced that they would build an artificial intelligence lab in Seattle.

To understand what forces steer the trajectory of our future now, and where we will be in the future, we must pay attention to moves like this.

Few available details can be found from articles like this one from Technology Review:

One of Chinas biggest tech companies, Tencent, is establishing an AI research lab in Seattle, demonstrating a growing determination to master a technology that looks set to define the future of many industries.

Tencent is already one of Chinas dominant tech companies. It operates the hugely successful mobile chat app WeChatwhich boasts over 889 million active users in Chinaalong with lots of other social tools, e-commerce services, games, and the like.

Based in Shenzhen, a manufacturing hub in the southeastern part of the country, Tencent has the potential to become a key player in the development and commercialization of artificial intelligence. The company has the money, the reach, and the data to attract strong researchers.

For more perspective, a little research on Tencent reveals they recently spent over a billion dollars on shares of Elon Musks company Tesla.

According to Tech Crunch:

Tencent, Asias second highest valued tech firm, has bought a five percent share in Tesla. According to a filing, the Chinese firm scooped up 8,167,544 shares for around $1.7 billion to become one of Teslas largest shareholders.

Elon is known for expressing concerns about artificial intelligence but his actions consistently show a different intention. Earlier this year he made headlines about wanting to merge man with machine, with articles such as this one from the Verge reading:

SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk is backing a brain-computer interface venture called Neuralink, according to The Wall Street Journal. The company, which is still in the earliest s...

Required Reading "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Photographer Murray Frederickss series of photographs on Lake Eyre in South Australia are eerie and quite gorgeous. (via Colossal)

My main thesis is that despite our knowledge of the prevalence of polychromy on ancient statuary, there is a predominantly neon white display of skin tone in respect to classical statues and sarcophagi. This assemblage of neon whiteness thus creates a false sense of homogeneity across the Mediterranean world. Moreover the idea that white marble is beauty is not an inherent truth of the universe; it was in part developed by influential art historians during the early modern period in Europe. This visual argument continues to be asserted and to shape what we in the West consider to be pulchritudinous.

The answer to the mystery finally arrived in an email from a research archivist at the David Zwirner gallery: The sitter in the portrait is known to be the daughter of the Indian social-realist novelist Bhabani Bhattacharya (1906-1988), who had been invited to New York at the time by his American editor Millen Brand of Crown Publishers. At the time of this sitting, Bhattacharyas daughter was enrolled as a student at Columbia University.


Bhattacharya was a pioneering Indian writer who wrote in English. He was a contemporary of RK Narayan, Mulk Raj Anand and Raja Rao. His books were translated into several European and Indian languages. The New York Times literary critic Charles Poore, in a 1952 review of Music for Mohini, wrote about Bhattacharyas protagonist Mohini: Well all be lucky if we meet a more appealing hero...

Ferrari Design Train for JR East in Japan

We're already big fans of train travel, but the Japanese have taken things to a new level with the recently revealed luxury shiki-shima train suite. Designed by Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama, the famed industrial designer behind Ferrari's Enzo and P4/5, you'll never want to step off this 10-car train.

Opulence starts from the exterior, with the train's sleek champagne-gold color and geometric windows. Tranquil luxury pervades the entire atmosphere, with Okuyama mixing traditional Japanese materials like washi paper, lacquer, and wood with futuristic flourishes.

Bent wood hugs the curves of the train cars, blending the exterior and interior landscapes, while plush carpets give warmth to the space. Design is a priority in all areas of the travel experience. Guests are served by staff outfitted in custom designs by Uniqlo creative director Noki Takizawa, and they dine on silver nickel cutlery crafted by renowned expert Yamazaki Kinzoku Kogyo.

The sleeper train, which is run by JR East, contains 17 rooms, including two suites. In creating this masterpiece, they are aiming to raise the bar in train travel, creating a high-end space that is unparalleled.

JR East's luxury skiki-shima was designed by Ken Kiyoyuki Okuyama, famous for his work with Ferrari.

"Cognitive Dissonance & the Human Mind" "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

"Cognitive Dissonance & the Human Mind"
by Dan Eden

"When Robbie the robot was told to shoot a weapon at a man in the movie Forbidden Planet, his electronic brain sparked and short-circuited. His creator had programmed him to never harm a human and so the conflicting ideas paralyzed him. Human beings often are presented with opposing thoughts also, but our brains have developed a way of resolving these conflicts through a process call cognitive dissonance. We are taught, like Robbie, that killing is prohibited - but what about war? And many anti-abortionists support the death penalty conflicting behavior is all around us. So how exactly does that work?

Simply put, congitive dissonance theory states that when you have two opposing ideas (or ideologies) at the same time, you will act upon the one that causes the less distortion to your ego. According to Wikipedia: "Cognitive dissonance is an uncomfortable feeling caused by holding two contradictory ideas simultaneously. The ideas or cognitions in question may include attitudes and beliefs, and also the awareness of ones behavior. The theory of cognitive dissonance proposes that people have a motivational drive to reduce dissonance by changing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, or by justifying or rationalizing their attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. Cognitive dissonance theory is one of the most influential and extensively studied theories in social psychology.

Dissonance normally occurs when a person perceives a logical inconsistency among his or her cognitions. This happens when one idea implies the opposite of another. For example, a belief in animal rights could be interpreted as inconsistent with eating meat or wearing fur....

The Problem of Antibiotic Resistance is Getting Much Worse "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Scientists have detected a disturbing form of antibiotic-resistance on U.S. farms in recent months, but its not the type they anticipated, and they dont know how it wound up there.

Researchers say that theyve discovered resistance to a class of antibiotics called carbapenems, a last-line of defensive drugs used to treat severe infections. These antibiotics are not intended for agricultural use because they are so vital to human health. In fact, theyre so potent and so valuable that they are usually reserved for patients exhibiting resistance to multiple antibiotics. [1] [2]

The bacteria had been identified among European and Asian livestock, but there was no sign of the problem in the U.S. until now. [3]

The Unsettling Discovery

Thomas Wittum, chair of veterinary preventive medicine at Ohio State University, and a team of colleagues went to a pig farm where they swabbed floors and walls over a 5-month period, collecting environmental and fecal samples. They discovered the presence of a specific carbapenem-resistant gene called blaIMP-27 growing in their petri dishes. [3]

Wittum explains that carbapenem antibiotics are illegal for farm use; even if they werent, theyd be too expensive anyway.

How the [resistant bacteria] got onto the farm we really dont know. But probably it was introduced from the outside from movements of wildlife, people, equipment, etc. [1]

He says its possible that other legal antibiotics used on the farm could be helping the bacteria to grow and spread, but more research is necessary.

None of the bacteria was detected in any of the pigs, but Wittum says he and the studys co-authors have detected it in both sows and piglets.

We found no evidence that these organisms were entering the food supply, but that is the concern: that it could happen on this or other farms, he says. We need more research to really understand that risk.

He goes on to say:

For now, we think that this is a rare and unusual occurrence. We hope that we have caught it early enough to stop it from spreading.

[But] the risk to the public is that these are food animals that will someday enter the food supply as fresh pork products.

While we didnt find any evidence that that has occurred on this particular farm, it is a potential concern. We want to be sure that multidrug-resistant bacteria like these are never present in food, and one way to do that is to be sure that they are not introduced onto our farms. [3]

How To Profit from Pumps and Dumps With CoinData "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Pumps and Dumps in the crypto world are something we are often seeing happening only only with more established and popular coins, but also with crypto coins that you may not have even heard of. We are not big fans of actions like these as they are used to help some people make even more money out of unsuspecting users. Normally regular users have absolutely no idea when and what a pump and dump may happen, so they can hardly profit from them, but what if you can join and make some profit as well? Here comes CoinData, a cliometric based trading tool that tracks trading volumes on the exchanges and helps you signal when a pump and dump might happen. With it you can see the whales trading intentions through the volume they trade: buy / sell walls appearing / disappearing, preparing to pump or dump the actual coin you trade.

You can track trading volumes or crypto coins or buy walls appearing manually, but tracking even a few of the top coins on a single exchange might be hard enough, let alone doing it for all and on multiple exchanges. That is where CoinData comes with help by giving you up to date information on all coins traded on Poloniex and Bittrex (for the moment) and giving you signals when a coin is probably going to be pumped up or dumped, so you can make the right move and buy or sell. The service also reports on when a buy wall appears as this is usually a sign that a pump can soon be happening, making the coin interesting to monitor. To make things easier you even get real time notifications to help you keep track of what is happening when you are not watching the tables with tradin...

Adanis final hurdle is W&Js rights "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The Deputy Prime Minister, Barnaby Joyce, on behalf of the Government and a host of pro-Adani interests, continues to propagate the lie that all that is needed for Adani to overcome its final hurdle the rights of Wangan and Jagalingou people is for the Native Title Act amendment bill to be passed in the Federal Parliament next week. After all, Malcolm Turnbull told Gautam Adani that its taken care of.

Joyce, in inimitable National Party style, is preempting the Parliament on the passage of proposed amendments to the Native Title Act, and preempting Court decisions on the consequences for Adani. But then, the Nationals never were very good on the separation of powers, due process and the rule of law. Maybe thats why Adani Mining looks so good to them.

Even if the bill does eventually go through, theres the matter of our legal action in the Federal Court against Adanis sham agreement. The passing of the Bill wont fix that. And thats the con.

We know the Government has been working furiously behind the scenes, and we know they are exploiting the doubt and uncertainty they themselves created after the Federal Court reverted to the law and overturned business as usual for miners.

Australias Smart Meter Hacking Vulnerability Claims "IndyWatch Feed Health"

smart_meter_radiation.jpgBy Catherine J. Frompovich

Readers ought to consider this article a serendipitous follow-up to my recent column Are Microwave Industries And Utilities Operating The Way Talcum Powder Makers Obfuscated?, as I was emailed information from Australia about how smart meters are capable of being hacked into on what would seem like a grand scale.

The Canberra [Australia] Times published 3225 smart meters in Canberra vulnerable to hacking on April 26, 2017 citing Nigel Phair, Director of the Center for Internet Safety at the University of Canberra [1], who warned consumers of the risks they are not aware of associated with smart meters.

Smart meters are defined as AMR and AMI smart meters. The AMR (automatic meter reading) meters send customers utility usage back to utilities for billing purposes only with no spying capabilities. Its a one-way reporting meter.


My Very Un-Instagrammable 9 Months on an Organic Farm "IndyWatch Feed Health"

organic farming

By Katie Hyson

There was a position open at a local organic family farm. In my cover letter, I emphasized what a great fit my skill set was, my passion for sustainable food solutions, my love of vegetables. I de-emphasized (read: omitted) my plant-growing record. Dead: 83 herbs, vegetables, and flowers. Still alive: 2 indefatigable house plants.

It was an administrative and sales position. They invited the top applicants to come to a farm luncheon event so they could get to know us in a low-pressure environment. This sounded very Hunger Games, but I wanted this job. This was the lone purpose-filled job in a compost heap of small-town Craigslist misery. So I took twenty minutes to pick out a locally baked all-natural sprouted loaf of bread to bring, and braved the Games.

The luncheon catered to all the hipster Instagram ideals of what a good sustainable farm should be: homemade jam samples, watermelon radishes, big checkered tablecloths, freshly brewed roselle tea, all laid out under a sprawling oak tree in the middle of the farm. I had ample time to mingle with (read: suss out) the other guests and applicants, and to self-identify as awkward, of course.

I raved too much about the salad. It was the best salad Id ever had. Id never tasted greens like that in my life. So I kept stopping conversation to loudly announce This is the best salad Ive ever had! Ive never tasted greens like this in my life!, and after the sixth time it started to make people uncomfortable.


Smart Glass Pad and ET Tech Disclosure? Your Next Smartphone Screen Could be BULLETPROOF "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A transparent metallic 'clay' has been developed by US military scientists that could lead to new super tough screens and displays. The material, made from a magnesium and aluminium-based mineral called spinel, is far tougher and lighter than bulletproof glass and can be modelled into different shapes (dome pictured).

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The Secret Space Program insider and whistleblower Corey Goode claims that within ultra-secret black budget projects are a host of incredibly advanced technology, one of which are what Goode calls Smart Glass Pads. These are iPad-like devices made of a transparent aluminum of incredible strength, which the following article seems to suggest is real. Other whistleblowers have also come forward, such as Pete Peterson, stating that this transparent material is apparently very useful and has been found in ancient ruins all over the solar system.

Humanly Possibilist: David Shapiros In Memory of an Angel "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

David Shapiro is one of the most companionable of shape-shifters, image-makers, and meaning multipliers in contemporary American poetry. Of all the poets associated with the New York School, any generation, he prevails as the warmest and most charming. Shapiro is the kind of poet to pop up from behind, lure you into an alley, show you his blue neon dream-catcher, and teach you how it works. He also will convince you that it is much more, a lyrical instrument for catching your breath.

Shapiros latest book of poetry, In Memory of an Angel, is his first full-length collection in fifteen years. As in previous collections, he displays a lavish love of learning and language without blowsy extravagance. His giddy assault on conventions of poetry is delivered with gem-like sharpness. It is easy to get a contact high from the joyousness of his moving menageries, which are sometimes zany, often tender, and entice me to engage energetically with the names, subjects, and situations described in these poems. The reader frequently has to catch up with Shapiro as he generates, mutates, and recombines meanings. However, this hodgepodge of ideas, never humdrum, revises received notions of how objects and sentiments might be inventoried and understood.

In A Note & Poem by Joseph Ceravolo in a Dream, from Shapiros 1994 collection After a Lost Original, he writes of his late friend and fellow poet Ceravolo: He is a possibilist poet. This equally applies to his own art: Shapiros work invigorates the reader with its relentless desire to tease out so many possibilities of what seem gradually focused story-like musings that arc away from expected turns and conclusions. He is indeed by deed and words a possibilist. Amen! May that neologism become officially approved with acknowledgment to this poet under consideration.

Each poem accumulates and disperses subjects and insights in a performance that operates as both ars poetica and sensitivity restorer. Here is the first section of the poem A Man Without a Book:

Interview: Photographer Spends 6 Years Documenting Village Life in Eastern Turkey "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

nadir bucan documentary photography van turkey

The Shepherd's Eye. Shepherds wear felt cloaks to protect themselves from the cold. In addition, they carry guns to protect themselves from animal predators. Alakaynak, Van, April 2015

Documentary photographer Nadir Bucan has spent the past six years documenting life in the small villages of Turkey's Van region. The project, Under the Shadow of the Sun, is a testament to the stripped down life that exists in the remote area, where people's survival is based on their animals.

The eastern Turkey province of Van has a mainly Kurdish population and is composed of tiny villages. After Bucan moved to the area to teach at a local university, he began spending his weekends documenting village life. The resulting images are a rich depiction of how villagers live their daily lives.

We had the opportunity to speak with Bucan about his work, why he feels it's even more important in this technological age, and how he is received by the villagers. Read on for our exclusive interview.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your work as a photographer?

I define myself as both an academic and documentary photographer. I started to take pictures with an analog camera in 1999 when digital photography had not declared its dominance yet. I used film until 2009 and I participated in every stage of photography from chemical bath to printing. I am interested in both practical and theoretical aspects of photography. So, I took my masters degree in 2014 with my thesis titled Reading Documentary Photography Through Walter Benjamin.

Antifa in Showdown Over Jefferson Davis Memorial From the Black Confederacy "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Members of the Black Confederacy have been protecting the Jefferson Davis Memorial in New Orleans from the pussies of Antifa.  The snowflakes gathered up large chains (No word on where they looted them from since they cant use EBT to pay for chains) and were planning on taking down the memorial using their cars.  Social Justice Warriors have no understanding of the Civil War whatsoever.  They think the Confederacy existed to preserve slavery, when the war was not fought over slavery.

The fact is only a relatively small group of Southerners owned slaves and they were mostly concentrated on large plantations.  You could not have raised an army in the South to save slavery as an institution. It was a war brought on by tariffs.  Everything was fine when there was an equal representation in

Replace Junk Food Snacks with This FATTY Snack to Lose Weight? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The simple decision to toss back a handful of peanuts a few times a week in place of other junk food snacks could go a long way to help people fight the battle of the bulge and could prevent childhood obesity, researchers say.

Peanuts are packed with vitamins and nutrients that make the tiny legumes one of the healthiest foods around. Look at the nutritional punch you get from just a 1/4 cup:

  • 88% biotin
  • 47% copper
  • 36% manganese
  • 28% vitamin B3
  • 24% molybdenum
  • 22% folate
  • 20% phosphorus
  • 20% vitamin E
  • 19% vitamin B1
  • 19% protein

Peanuts are rich in heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, high in oleic acid, and loaded with antioxidants, too. In fact, previous research found that consuming more nuts was associated with decreased overall disease mortality.

But continuing with the original study at hand

According to scientists, eating peanuts 3 to 4 times a week could help lower body mass index (BMI). That could be especially good news for children and teens with developing bodies. U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics show obesity affects about 12.7 million children and adolescents between the ages of 2 and 19. (The only problem is that BMI is a bit antiquated.)

For the study researchers at the University of Houston, Baylor College of Medicine, and Texas Womans University followed 257 Latino adolescents over the course of 6 months. Each was in the 85th percentile or greater for BMI.

The Five-Star Delight of Driving Across America with Ron Padgett "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Ron Padgett (photo by John Sarsgard)

If you saw Jim Jarmuschs Paterson (2016), you know that Ron Padgett wrote four new poems for this wonderful film. You also know that the film is the story of a bus driver-poet named Paterson who lives in Paterson, New Jersey. If, in addition to seeing this movie, you have played Trivial Pursuit more than a handful of times, or taken a class in Modern American Poetry, you are likely know that Paterson, the name of an unremarkable city on the Passaic River, is the title of William Carlos Williams epic, five-volume poem, and that Williams was Robert Smithsons doctor when he was growing up in Passaic.

What these preeminent individuals have in common is a love for the American vernacular. Like Williams, they recognize that the pure products of America have lost their marbles; flipped their wig; blown a gasket; hit the ceiling; gone off the deep end. As filmmaker, writer, and mover of rocks, Jarmusch, Padgett, and Smithson turn these marbles, gaskets, wigs, and much else into dazzling flights of lyricism, with Padgetts looping passages of prose being the most zany of the four.

This is how Richard Brodys glowing New Yorker review (December 30, 2016) of Jarmuschs Paterson begins:

Jim Jarmusch is among the rarest and most precious filmmakers of our time, because, at his bestas he is in his new film, Patersonhe conjures an entire world of his own imagination.

Brodys characterization of Jarmusch is equally true of Padgett: he is among the rarest and most precious poets of our time because he conjures an entire world of his own imagination. And what an imagination it is.

Kp Message 5-7-17 For Some Reason, the path of Rock Star is NOT for me "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

161102_kp_kauai_p1010211_arm_to_sun_crop_240_3There have been a few roles Ive been in where I had the chance to be the Star. And I rather craved some of those. Like playing softball (at 3M) and hitting my first over the fence home run, hockey goalie, getting a shutout, and school in general, getting the best grades, playing Hawaiian music and being a professional musician, full time. All about that rock star role. And although part of it was about enjoying the sport (or school), and being the best I could be, much was about that ego desire to be, Rock Star. Visible and recognized.

No more.

Now it seems my function, whether blogging or energy work or missions, is about the non-personal and has nothing to do with being any kind of Rock Star. And that is what works well for myself, at this time. If nobody knows what Im doing, if nobody knows that Im doing, if nobody knows how Im doing, thats okay with me.

Im not here to be one of those Rock Star things. I am simply here to BE.

And thats fine with me!

Drunk Drives Car Into Bar After Being Denied Service [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

A bartender in Salem, Oregon denied service to a man because he was already exceedingly drunk.  The man then went back to his car, started it up and then drove it into the bar, the Triangle Inn.  Fortunately only one person suffered minor injuries.

The Human Aura Observed Through Digital Metadata "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Anthony Tyler; Wake Up World

Lately there has been an enormous flux of research recently, attempting to expand on the uncharted relationship that man has with electrical technology. With the streamline of the internet in modern culture, humans have found themselves immersed in the dimensions of raw data at a rate of which has never been conceivable before. As if one were traveling to other places nearly instantly, the internet can be philosophically considered a new dimension and even scientifically, this is not a stretch in definition.

So, with this integration of the internet (for better or worse) it is interesting to try and understand not only the way that humans react to digital information, but also the way digital information reacts to humans as well. For example, a recent study done demonstrates that when humans use digital communication regularly, it becomes a digital circadian rhythm of pattern that persists with time. What this really reveals, however, are the dimensions of the human aura through its digital metadata footprint.

The human body is naturally capable of communication through means outside the common senses. Modern science shows us that extra-sensory perceptions are common activity to certain organs in our body such as the intestines and the heart, for example. These organs play a critical role in intaking and interpreting electromagnetic information that is given off by other peoples brain and heart EMI signatures (and any other EMI signatures for that matter). This electromagnetic information is processed through the subjects cognitive senses and also through the neurological activity in their intestine, which seems to be the literal interpretation of everyones intuitive gut feeling. Indeed even the heart has a large amount of neurological activity and is responsible for communicating most of the bodys electromagnetic information in its EMI signature, seeming to scientifically uncover a piece of the shamanistic human aura.

7 Herbs That Kill Internal Parasites FAST "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

It is estimated that 85% of Americans have an internal parasite problem!

Parasites are organisms that live in or on a host organism. They gain an advantage at the expense of the host. Internal parasites live inside the body and feed off of food or blood. Worms, coccidia and blood parasites are all types of internal parasites. They come in many different shapes and sizes and can cause numerous health problems when left untreated. Some consume your food, leaving you hungry and unable to gain weight. Others feed off of your red blood cells and cause anemia. Some lay eggs and cause itching, irritability and insomnia.

What Causes Parasites?

Your risk for getting intestinal parasites can become greater due to certain factors. These include:

2 Create a lounge for minorities in the Rosa Parks Building.

3 Paint the building in the colors of the Pan-African liberation .

4 Force all freshmen to take a class in  educational diversity orientation.

Peter Dreher Paints a Thousand Skulls "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Peter Dreher, Untitled (1947), graphite on paper, sheet: 10 x 9 1/2 inches (25.4 x 24.1 cm) frame: 13 1/4 x 13 3/4 inches (33.7 x 34.9 cm) (all images courtesy the artist. 1947 Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York / VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn

If Peter Dreher can paint a subject once, he can paint it five thousand times. He is best known for his observational paintings of a single empty glass. He started this series, Tag um Tag guter Tag (Every Day Is a Good Day) in 1974, and has painted as many as one hundred in a single year, always in the same position. He depicts the solitary glass in the middle of a canvas slightly larger than the subject. Nearly all of them measure around 10 x 8 inches. The view is eye-level and direct, the glass being the same size in the painting as its real-life counterpart.

Done over a period of more than forty years, the series now numbers more than five thousand. The paintings present viewers with a visual conundrum: they are exactly the same but each one is unique. Dreher has found a way to approach Andy Warhols mechanical reproduction and Walter Benjamins aura from an oblique and provocative angle. There are no masterpieces in this group, and reproducibility has been subverted in advance. At the same time, despite individually painting each glass and never resorting to mechanical means, Dreher has cited Warhols importance to him and has said that he wanted to be like a machine. I think what Dreher means by this statement needs to be unpacked.



Tim Farrons photo to appear on milk cartons "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Since an appeal went out earlier this month, the Liberal Democrats have received dozens of possible sightings of their leader. He has been missing from public view for months, though the precise date when he disappeared has not been determined. It was more a fading away than a disappearance, said a spokesman. He could be in the room right now and you might not register it.

Were publishing his photo in the hope that it might jog somebodys memory. Have you seen a man in his 40s talking about the NHS? Maybe you saw somebody in the background on a TV programme? If you think youve spotted Tim Farron, please call us. Or even if you havent. Please call. The phone lines arent exactly busy.

Some reported sightings have now been eliminated from enquiries because the person spotted was black, Chinese, or a woman, so a helpful identification guide featuring Farrons silhouette has been issued. It only lasts a short while before fading to grey, and then disappearing altogether.

One caller even claimed to have seen him at a gay wedding, said the spokesman. Come on, were not that desperate.

Empathy Heartbeat Training Helps You Read Other People's Minds "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Helen Thomson; Prevent Disease

You really should listen to your heart. People who are more aware of their heartbeat are better at perceiving the emotions of people around them. What's more, improving this ability might help some people with autism and schizophrenia.

Can you feel your heart beating softly against your breastbone? Or perhaps you feel hungry, thirsty or in pain? If so, you are perceiving your internal state -- a process called interoception. It's thought that to generate emotions, we first need to interpret our body's internal state of affairs.

So if we see a rabid dog, we only feel fear once we recognise an increase in our heart rate or perceive a sweaty palm. Some people with conditions that involve having poor interoceptive abilities also have trouble interpreting their emotions.

But researchers have also speculated that interoception is important for understanding what other people are thinking, and even guessing what they think a third person might be thinking -- known as theory of mind. The idea is that if we have trouble distinguishing our own emotions, we might also find it hard to interpret the emotions -- and corresponding mental states of others.

Great Cause Features Awful Lineup "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

VENETA, Ore. Attendees of the Hesh Against Hunger fundraiser experienced a mix of feelings between charitable accomplishment and insatiable guilt, thanks to the three-day benefits unparalleled dedication to social justice and shitty bands, according to exit polls from the event.

The final data showed organizers generated roughly $50,000 for local charities, along with over 900 negative Facebook user reviews.

My homeless cousin raised three kids by herself after her husband died of cancer, so I totally want to help out the food banks but Im really torn between feeding the needy, and not supporting Putrid Nutria, said showgoer Jim Hilstead. I must have donated a years worth of hot dogs, but Im pretty sure most of them went to the shitheads in Winstons Army. I dont know how I feel about that.

Witnesses report many of the areas economically disenfranchised and marginalized residents shared their stories of loss and triumph between live performances by forgettable, mediocre acts. Concertgoers expressed simultaneous gratitude and contempt when the Saturday night headliner, Coal Chamber, addressed the crowd by saying, Wed like to thank everyone who came out to support. I know Im not gonna be hungry after that gyro we got from the cart by the merch booth! Now, who recognizes this one from that show Leverage?


Local activist and womens shelter director Tina McDowell claimed she spent two and a half days coordinating volunteers while trying to ignore covers of 80s classics and terrible one-hit wonders. Its surreal, being told by the lead singer of Lit to donate to the mission store because thats exactly what I did with their CD in 2004, said McDowell. Next year, we expect to be able to double our donations by featuring a lineup people might actually enjoy.

Donors did report that, ultimately, they were proud to contribute their hard-earned cash to help those in need. But some were skeptical of the distribution of compensation for bands on the bill.

7 Key Principles to Attaining Inner Peace "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Brandon West; Waking Times

We all have a connecting link to universal consciousness within us, and when we are open and receptive to that connection then we are in a state of inner peace, love, inspiration, bliss, and so on. All of those wonderful qualities are who we are in our natural state. The only thing disrupting this flow is our thoughts, and the specific perceptions of ourselves and the universe which our thoughts create.

Think of the individual that you used to be for a moment, or the aspects of yourself that you are learning to transcend and transform through spiritual growth. That aspect of yourself is nothing more than a fixed perspective of life, your identity, a reality that is held in place through habitual thought, emotion, and behavior.

You only need to surrender to the higher consciousness within yourself, and all of the issues in your life will be resolved, and inner peace will be yours. You will naturally transform and become greater than you ever dreamed yourself to be as you let go of your old identity and embrace the new, powerful, infinite, and eternal aspect of yourself.

To do so is something that everyone alive has the ability to do. In a general sense it is the purpose of all life. All that it takes is some time, consistent effort, and the right leverage in the right places. These 7 principles for attaining inner peace are that leverage.

How To Build An Earthship House ( Pros and Cons ) "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Today, most people in the United States are accustomed to living in homes that have a squarish or rectangular shape. While you may not realize it, this is the least efficient shape to use if you are seeking to work with a wide range of materials, durability, and also reduce energy consumption.

Earthship House

In general, the rounder the shape, the better chance you have of building a durable structure with limited materials.

From that perspective, Earthship houses have a great deal to offer to anyone thinking about building an off-grid or survival home. Even if you do not utilize this specific design, you can learn more about how it works, and then take the best ideas and adapt them to your needs.

What is an Earthship House?

The Earthship house design is a trademark of architect Mike Reynolds. These homes can be built from all kinds of scrap materials. The rooms, walls, and internal plumbing are all arranged to take advantage of passive solar heating and cooling.

Aside from accounting for natural wind, sun, and other features, these homes also make use of materials that multiply the effects of natural elements to achieve a range of goals. For example, instead of using wood or plaster walls, these homes might use tin cans combined with cement. The tin cans in turn, absorb heat from the sun and then radiate it inward via vents placed in the upper portions of the wall.

An Earthship house is also designed to be completely independent from the standpoint of energy, food production, and waste removal. The building plans integrate solar power, greenhouses, composting, and human waste disposal systems. Windmills and water based power systems are also fairly easy to integrate into the power system.

A HuffPo 5-5-17 (propaganda) article Syrias White Helmets Court Bernie Sanders Illustrations of the propaganda in this one! "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Im not publishing the full article, just the parts that illustrate the propaganda points. This, of course, is from my viewpoint. But it certainly appears that Bernie and several others are continuing to drink the Assad and his government are bad, White Helmets are angels Kool Aid.

First off, I do not live in Syria, and I have no firsthand knowledge of the details what is and has been going on there. However, several others have, and have pointed out that the White Helmets is a created group that looks nice, but is actually quite different.

In this Kp blog post (from Sputnik, 12-11-16) for example, Freelance journalist Eva Bartlett pointed these things out:

[re: international organizations on the ground] These organizations are relying on the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights [SOHR], which is based in Coventry, UK, which is one man. Theyre relying on compromised groups like the White Helmets.

the White Helmets were founded in 2013 by a British ex-military officer, they have been funded to the tune of $100 million by the US, UK, Europe and other states.

Caution: The 12 Most Dangerous Cancer Causing Products In Your Home Today "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The fast progress in the field of technology and the changes that happened in the way people view the world and society had strong impact on our lifestyles. This ultimately means that we are more prone to reduce our well-being by getting exposed to many different toxins and chemicals. We eat GMO and chemical-packed foods; we breathe polluted air and get in touch with many harmful substances on a daily basis.

What is even worse is that most people are unaware of these risks, especially when it comes to foods because they think that the labels are a proof that everything is alright. Thats why we have decided to create a list of 12 of the most harmful products associated with the formation of cancer. These products are found in almost every modern household.

12 Cancer Causing Products in Your House

1. Household Products Ajax Cleanser (Colgate- Palmolive. Inc.)

Ajax Cleanser is one of the most popular cleansers in the world. However, the manufacturer (Colgate-Palmolive Inc.) didnt list a toxic ingredient found in this cleanser. This ingredient is called crystalline silica.

It has already been linked to cancer, skin, lung and eye irritation. Crystalline silica has been listed as carcinogenic more than 20 years ago by the MSDS (Material Safety and Data Sheet). The good news is that the number of products that use this toxic ingredient is reducing.

2. Whole Milk (Lucerne, Borden etc.)

Some people may find this odd, but whole milk also comes with toxic elements that cant be found on the label. Some of these toxins include:

  • DDT a carcinogenic xenoestrogen.
  • Antibiotics a certain number of antibiotics are carcinogenic and often lead to resistance and/or allergies.
  • Heptachlor a neurotoxic carcinogenic xenoestrogen.
  • Hexachlorobenzene a neurotoxic carcinogenic reproductive toxin.
  • Dieldrin a carcinogenic xenoestrogen.
  • Recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone plus IGF-1 This combination can result in breast, prostate and colon cancer.

3. Alberto VO5 Conditioner (Basic Ingredient Of Neutral Henna).

This time, all the toxic ingredients can be found on the label:

  • Fragrance a term used to cover several ingredients that can lead to contact dermatitis. FDC Red #4 associated with canc...

Next time your little band plays let me know. Your aunts and I would like to come and see. Maybe you could play something quieter. Your grandpa used to sing Torna a Surriento to me before the stroke. Do you know that one? You should not be listening to music with names like Nashville Py or Revolting Cs. What does Diarrhea Planet even mean?

Your mother just told me you are an atheist now. I hope you are joking. I guess that means no Christmas presents.The fool says in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good. Psalm 14:1!

Geraldo is saying thousands of kids are dying from bath salts. It is an epidemic. I hope you are not doing them. I told your mother to throw out the Bath & Body Works basket I bought her just to be safe.

Your cousin Kelli got into University of Chicago Medical School. You should talk to her. You are such a smart boy; you should go to college. Please dont get another tattoo. Who is that pretty girl in the picture on your Facebook page? Is she your girlfriend? She should be, Asians are very modest and resourceful. I would love to meet her.

David, I just saw on Fox News that there was a stabbing in Austin, Texas. I hope you are not there right now. I know youve been there before. Please call me to let me know you are safe.

David Camerons hair pledges to leave UK if Labour wins "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

frankly, I'm worth itWith less than a week to polling day, David Camerons hair has weighed into the general election campaign by threatening to pull up its roots and emigrate if the Labour party wins on 7 May. Under this Conservative-led government, what we have seen from David Camerons hair is recovery from recession and a return to growth, said George Osborne today. Its been a miraculous turnaround. Figures show our prime minister now has the fastest-growing head of hair in Europe.

Camerons tresses have rarely been out of the spotlight in recent times. UKIP leader Nigel Farage recently accused the prime minister of dying his hair, or blacking-up, and last year Lino Carbosiero, David Camerons hairdresser, was awarded an MBE for services to biological implausibility.

Theres no doubt Mr Cameron and his hair have grown apart over recent years the savage cuts certainly havent helped, said celebrity hairstylist Nicky Clarke. But theres still a connection there, and although his parting has veered from right to left depending which way the political winds have been blowing, he has never been completely exposed.

But Labour has dismissed the threat from David Camerons coiffure as a gimmick. What weve seen from the prime minister is a widening gap between front and back, said Ed Miliband. As always David Cameron is heavy on style and light on substance. I think voters should allow his hair to finish what its started.

In unrelated news, David Miliband left the country in 2013 just in case.


Make a Common Sense Survival Kit for Everyday Carry "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

common sense survival kitOne aspect of the prepper philosophy is common sense. After all, it is just common sense to plan for the future, regardless of what may or may not happen. Thats why we have retirement funds, car, home and health insurance and regular well-checks with the doctor. Planning ahead is also why you may stick an umbrella in your brief case or carry a light jacket on a sunny day. And it would be stupid to not carry a spare tire and tools to change a flat!

So when it comes to wilderness or urban survival, being prepared is just common sense, and you should insert a healthy dose of that commodity into any disaster or emergency planning.

So, I propose that you, a prepper, should also make a compact, easy-to-carry wilderness and/or urban survival kit to include with all your other survival gear. One that is based on common sense, not necessarily what survival sites and forums tell you that you must have.

Are you committed?

common sense survival kit

Carry survival gear in your wallet. I always have (from left) firestarter, charcloth (in a waterproof, plastic bag) and a signal mirror with me.


Whats common sense for me, may not be common sense for you!

Your goal for this common sense kit is based on what makes sense for YOU to carry, not a former Navy Seal living in Costa Rica who has a popular blog. Toward that goal, then, start by asking yourself:

  • Can I dunk a basketball?

I cant. Never could. But watch any NBA game and youll see the guys slam the ball home at every opportunity. If you watch the survival reality shows, you may also see incredible techniques done routinely, under the worst circumstances. So what? Use the common sense filter. Just because somebody can dunk a basketball or perform wondrous survival techniques on TV doesnt mean you can, or might be able to learn. Dont rely on gee-whiz techno...

Survival Tech: Accessing Crucial Information When The Grid Goes Down "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

When it comes to emergency preparedness, every day is a new learning experience. At times, it feels like the more that I learn, the greater the realization of how much I truly dont know. Educating myself in Survival Tech is an ever changing learning experience.

Survival Tech: Accessing Crucial Information When SHTF

Luckily, there are vast resources that I can use to gain access to information that I am not well versed in. The Internet is packed with quality information from credible sources. When I am home, I have countless field manuals, textbooks and even video tutorials that I can utilize to gain answers to my questions. If I am able to bug in during a SHTF situation, I am good to go. The issue is that during an emergency scenario, I may have to leave all of that information behind in order to seek safety for me and my family.

In a crisis, having to move out of foot may be my only chance at survival. My go bag is staged with all sorts of gear that is catered to my needs as well as my training. I am very methodical when choosing the contents of my main go bag. Adding extra weight to my kit is not something that I take lightly. I never truly know how far I will need to move in order to get to safety. The length of time that I will be humping my go bag is also an unknown.

Realizing that I am ignorant in many subjects relating to preparedness (Dentistry, Plant ID, Advanced Wilderness First-Aid, etc.) I need access to this information in order to increase mine and my familys chances of survival. I realize that I cannot physically carry the extra 100+ pounds of books, manuals and archived video tutorials So I needed to find a viable solution.

In the past, I chose to add a tablet to my go bag. My tablet was packed with information that I was lacking. It also contained a lot of survival basics in case I was out of commission and my family needed access to that info. Keep in mind that I may be away from my family when SHTF or the one in need of care. Having a tablet packed with easy to access survival information, seemed like a good solution for this dilemma.

As I continued to refine my emergency plan I realized that I was depending on one piece of proprietary gear, my tablet, for my informational needs. If something were to happen to my tablet, I would no longer have access to this crucial data. I realized that everyone in my family...

Intuitive Astrology: May Full Moon 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Mays Full Moon falls on the 10th/11th in the watery sign of Scorpio and holds extremely powerful and potent energy.

Scorpio energy is all about transformation and reaching higher levels of consciousness. In fact, Scorpio energy has the potential to reach Divine levels of consciousness, but at the same time, it also has the ability to reach extremely low levels of consciousness as well.

No matter where you fall on the consciousness spectrum it is likely that this Full Moon is going to leave a lasting impact. It is also likely that this Full Moon is going to help open your consciousness to a new level so you can see things in a different light.

Mays Full Moon is going to represent a turning point in the year and an opportunity to really embrace and accept any recent changes.

It is also going to bring about a powerful transformative shift that will really allow you to move forward.

In fact, after the energy of this Full Moon starts to fade, you may be feeling a greater sense of understanding of the road ahead. This is also due to the fact that both Mercury and Venus, which have recently been retrograde, are also going to start speeding up.

Things may feel a little uneasy leading up to the Full Moon as changes may be in the air, but the best way to manage this energy moving forward is remembering your personal power.

Very often we forget that we have a strength and a power within us. This power gives us the ability to step up and take responsibility over our lives no matter what troubles we find ourselves in.

The minute we give away our power, it becomes very difficult to deal with the situations that life throws our way. But, when we remember that we have infinite wisdom and potential within, it becomes much easier to navigate through murky times.

Claiming your personal power is really about acknowledging that you are more than just a physical body.

In order to really step up into your power, you have to know that you are a highly advanced and intelligent energetic being that has a soul that is both timeless and endless.

If you have been needing to remind yourself of this, if you have been needing to connect within and tune into that inner power, this Scorpio Full Moon is going to be the perfect time to do it.

Full Moons usually symbolise a time of releasing and letting go, however the potency of this Scorpio Moon also makes it a great time to send your wishes into the cosmos.

Anti-fracking group protests Boulder orchestra over oil company donations

From an Article by John Bear, Boulder Daily Camera, May 5, 2017

A flier from protesters is pictured on the floor during a performance Friday at the Macky Auditorium on the Univerisity of Colorado campus in Boulder.

Boulder Chamber Orchestra performed Beethovens Ninth Symphony on Friday evening with tickets available free to students from Boulder Valley, St. Vrain Valley and Jefferson County school districts.

However, East Boulder County United, an anti-fracking group, is taking issue with the orchestra taking donations from Extraction Oil and Gas protested prior to the performance at Macky Auditorium on Friday night.

We are concerned citizens and we are doing this for the protection of our families, EBCU member Kristin McLean said. We arent doing this to be disruptive, but to bring awareness that Boulder County is about to be fracked because as of May 1, its legal.

Boulder County had a series of consecutive moratoriums in place since February 2012 against accepting and processing new applications for oil and gas development in unincorporated parts of the county. The latest one ended at the conclusion of the workday on Monday.

A representative from the Boulder Chamber Orchestra declined to comment, but the board of directors provided the Daily Camera with a statement on Friday, saying that organizations like it rely on donations from individuals and corporations because of cuts to arts funding during the past several decades.

The Cancer Revolution: A Helpful Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Half of all men and one-third of all women will experience cancer at some point in their lives. Fortunately, there are ways to significantly reduce your risk, as detailed in Dr. Leigh Erin Connealys book, The Cancer Revolution: A Groundbreaking Program to Reverse and Prevent Cancer. Connealys interest in cancer prevention and treatment grew out of her own, long personal health journey.

[When] my mother was pregnant with me she started bleeding. The doctor gave her a drug called DES (diethylstilbestrol). That was given to women in the 50s to prevent miscarriage. Approximately 16 years later, my parents received a letter [saying] This drug causes cancer, hormone problems and anatomical problems. You need to go to University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and get a full workup.

At 16 years of age, I started getting pap smears, colposcopies and biopsies [T]hey told me I would need to be followed continuously for this problem. I went to University of Texas School of Public Health and did my Masters on DES [learning] all about the complications

I had many of them. Today, I still have many of them. My whole mission is [to avoid] cancer, because I was so high risk. Luckily, in my journey I met practitioners whod had cancer themselves and fought it and won. I always tell people, You learn from those who have already been down that path and have become masters of healing themselves.

Key Anticancer Strategies: Diet and Detoxification

Optimizing your bodys ability to burn fat as its primary fuel by eating a ketogenic diet and/or fasting is a foundational aspect of cancer prevention and treatment. Detoxification is another crucial component. Connealys book contains a chapter focused on detoxification, as most of us are inundated with thousands of toxins each day, many of which have carcinogenic potential.

Water, air and soil [are contaminated], she says. If youre going to live in todays world the No. 1 thing you need to do is detox on a regular basis, somehow, some way. A lot of it you can do at home all by yourself

We do heavy metal testing and toxic load testing for all patients [Phthalates are] the next big thing. Phthalates are everywhere [and] we know they cause cancer, heart disease and diabetes Then [there a...

Trump Puts $654 Million in Native American Housing Block Grants in Jeopardy "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Pine Ridge Indian Reservation neighborhood. Native News Online photo by Levi Rickert.

Published May 7, 2017

WASHINGTON For those who think Donald Trump is good for Indian Country, they better think again.

With a stroke of the pen, President Donald Trump on Friday added language to spending bill (H.R. 244) that passed Congress last week that threatens Native American housing block grants. Congress bill approved some $654 million for tribal housing programs. 

Trump White House continues to attempt to erode gains made by American Indian nations.

Trumps added language to the Congressional bill that provides his administration latitude to make decisions about spending measures. Trumps administration can cancel grants and funding streams already in motion.

Here is the language that will potentially negatively impact American Indians and Alaska Natives:

My Administration shall treat provisions that allocate benefits on the basis of race, ethnicity, and gender (e.g., Division B, under the heading Minority Business Development; Division C, sections 8016, 8021, 8038, and 8042; Division H, under the headings Departmental Management Salaries and Expenses, School Improvement Programs, and Historically Black College and University Capital Financing Program Account; Division K, under the heading Native American Housing Block Grants; and Division K, section 213) in a manner consistent with the requirement to afford equal protection of the laws under the Due Process Clause of the Constitutions Fifth Amendment.

Housing on American Indian and Alaska Native tribal lands are, in many cases, as bad as living conditions in third-world countries, with severely overcrowded and dilapidated conditions.

An Inspiration for Youth: Grandma Thomas Walked 80 Miles Each Year to Raise Funds for Youth Complex "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Navajo Times | Donovan Quintero
Marjorie Grandma Thomas, 85, poses for the camera on Friday in Window Rock.

Published May 7, 2017

WINDOW ROCK  If youve been wondering where shes been, look no more.

On Friday, the matriarch, more popularly known as Grandma Thomas, 85, came by the Navajo Times office with her son, Leon Skyhorse Thomas.

She had walked for years raising money for the youth of Chinle. Her 80-mile trek between Chinle and Window Rock was a common sight in September during the Navajo Nation Fair.

Children and their parents walked with her carrying buckets and signs asking for donations to her cause, which was to build a youth complex in Chinle.

Her goal at the time was to raise $25 million. In the end, she raised more than $100,000, which now sits unused in a bank account.

The last time Thomas walked was in 2010. Her biggest supporter, her husband of 50 years, Leo Thomas, passed on in 2008.

Her son Leon spoke on behalf of Marjorie (her first name), telling about her childhood and what she has been doing since she stopped walking.

My mom grew up in Chinle and went to boarding school, which she did not like, Leon said. One of her experiences was she went to Gallup for the first time during a school trip. They went to eat in a restaurant and they wouldnt serve the Navajo children. She remembers crying.

His mother recalled walking to the top of a hill where her teachers brought sandwiches, chips and sodas for her and her classmates.

Afterward, they went to El Morro Theater to watch a Shirley Temple movie. Excited, Marjorie rushed down the aisle to find a seat only to be stopped by a Caucasian man, who told her that her place was on the balcony, where the non-whites sat, on wooden benches.

Bothered by the experience, she could not enjoy the movie. When she got home, she asked her grandmother why they were treated badly.

Well, these people dont understand the word love, she recalled.

Chickasaw Begins 322-Mile Washita River Adventure "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Richard Thomas poses in his Oklahoma City workshop in 2014 with an 18th century French barn door he refurbished into a breakfast table for Friends of the (Governors) Mansion. The master craftsman is tackling a 322-mile journey down the Washita River Friday, May 5, before taking part in the Fourth Annual Artesian Arts Festival in Sulphur, Oklahoma, May 27.

Published May 7, 2017

CHEYENNE, OKLAHOMA Chickasaw master craftsman and artist Richard Thomas plans to kayak more than 320 miles down the Washita River to honor the memory of Southern Cheyenne tribal leader Black Kettle, who died near here 149 years ago.

Black Kettle lost his life in the 1868 Battle of the Washita, which some historians characterize as a massacre, as George Armstrong Custer led his men in a daybreak attack on the Cheyennes winter encampment.

Thomas said the trip is also intended to pay tribute to all tribes whose territory embraces the Washitas muddy meanderings through western, central and southern Oklahoma.

He plans to slip his personally-outfitted kayak into the stream Friday, May 5 at the Black Kettle National Grasslands. The Washita kisses the Texas Panhandle on the west then crisscrosses several tribal nations as it flows southeasterly through what was once Indian Territory.


Timing is key for Thomas.

Thomas believes spring rains will have swelled the Washita. His kayak, loaded with potable water, jerky, nutrition bars and other provisions, rides low in the water. Thomas must have 2 feet of water flowing at Black Kettle. Otherwise, hell walk the stream, pulling the kayak in as little as 2 inches of water.

Im not too worried about the trip. If a snake wants to get in the kayak it wouldnt have much trouble, he said with a big laugh. Add to that the amount of medicine I take to stay alive and Im taking about all I can, he notes with self-deprecating humor.

At 57, Thomas admits age is a concern. I am physically able to do this now. Im not sure if that will be true a year from now or two years from now.

He wishes to experience the adventure deliberately.

Thomas will assess the health of the Washita River through water sampling. He intends to document sightings of wildlife, observe thriving and distressed species of trees...


1968 Prophecy From A 90-Year-Old Woman In Norway Is Being Fulfilled Right Before Our Eyes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In 1968, a 90-year-old woman in Norway was given an incredible glimpse into the future. She was shown what life would be like just before World War III and the return of Jesus Christ, and what she saw is eerily similar to current conditions in our world today.

When evangelist Emanuel Minos held meetings in the town of Valdres, Norway where she lived, this precious elderly lady shared what the Lord had shown to her with him.

Minos wrote down what he was told, and it got put away in a drawer for 30 years. But after many of the things that she saw started to come to pass, Minos remembered the vision and decided to share it with the world.

One of the reasons why I wanted to share this vision now is because it has so many parallels to other visions that I have been sharing recently. You can read her entire vision here, but in this article I just wanted to highlight a few portions of it.

Flat Earth Psychological Operations The Flat Earth PSYOP "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Image result for flat earth map
A couple things I see with this flavor of psychological operation is a dividing of the conspiracy demographic and heavily discrediting the flat earth segment of that demographic while effectively assassinating the credibility of conspiracy truth by association. The CIA has a major agenda to misrepresent and/or discredit conspiracy aware persons, as seen with their Operation Mockingbird NLP tactic of molding the societal view and weaponizing the term conspiracy theorist after the JFK assassination.

In an attempt to help people avoid being controlled opposition, here are some points for a spherical earth and why Flat Earth is a PSYOP:

Why Earth is (Generally) a Sphere:

Day and night happen simultaneously in different time zones
Time zones are lapsed in a fashion that completely matches a spherical earth
Flat earth sun models are completely contrived (Especially if you throw in seasons and eclipses)
The shape of Planet Earth is witnessed with its shadow during a lunar eclipse. Do flat earth lunar and solar eclipse models make sense at all?
The Equator & its temperatures dont make much sense in a flat earth model when you add the Arctic Circle
Eratosthenes calculation of Earths circumference would not work in a flat earth model[1]
All visible planets in our solar system + the Sun are spherical
The cosmos is full of spherical objects
A curved open atmosphere has been proven to me, as I have witnessed a large asteroid fly in and out of the atmosphere. This could not happen with a firmament or flat earth.
You can witness the curvature of the Earth by watching a ship come within the furthest line of sight
Balloons can take a video camera up into the Earths upper atmosphere
Fish Eye is not a legible explanation for the full curve witnessed by balloons in the upper atmosphere

The Wideboy Panoramic Camera-II "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

 Many years ago I wrote about the Wideboy Panoramic camera in my blog. Wideboy and other panoramic cameras were made by Horsley Cameras of UK. My old blog post can be found here.  Many of the links in that old post went defunct over the years however certain information can still be retrieved from the archived websites. I've made an earlier post on how to fetch archived data from dead websites.

A couple of weeks ago I found an Wideboy Mark III being sold on Ebay, which rekindled my interest in that camera.

Wideboy is a swing lens medium format panoramic camera. A simple gadget  that has to be hand cranked to take the picture. Being a simple design it would very easy for the initiated to study the general principles of rotational panoramic cameras and improve it if necessary.



In One Year, Opiates Killed Ten Times as Many Americans as ALL Terror Attacks in Last 20 Years "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Safety of the people and security of the nation should be priority number one for any leader who wishes to have a successful tenure in office, perhaps even multiple terms and the President of the United States is no exception to this model.

So, why, then, has a killer of tens of thousands each year still on the loose inside those putatively impermeable borders? How could this executioner, unmasked and identified, roam main streets of small towns as comfortably as a seedy alley in some decrepit corner of an urban metroplex unhindered by the threat of detention or arrest?

How could this nefarious reaper sever the lives of ninety-one Americans each and every day, yet rather than earn a notorious status as Enemy of the Public Number One this killer is encouraged to thrive, intentionally or not, by those supposedly the most trusted to guard us from bodily harm?

Since the attacks of 9/11, the United States has waged the pernicious War on Terror combating a concept most of its citizenry will never encounter firsthand nearly everywhere on the planet, even toppling ostensively brutal but sovereign regimes in its name.

 Yet, Terror its tactics used most often by disciples fighting in the name of religion has not been as efficacious in destroying American lives as the opioid medications prescribed, without irony, to kill their pain.

Since 1995, terrorists of varied stripe have killed 3,181 people in the U.S. nearly 3,000 of them in the September 11 attacks, which sparked the nations unending war, alone.

Thats a startling figure, indeed particularly in a country known for Orwellian surveillance and tracking of visitors and citizens, alike but terrors death toll cannot be examined separately from known killers more easily stopped.

In 2014, the span of a single year, an astounding 29,467 Americans died by overdose of opioid-related drugs, including prescriptions and the following year saw more than 15,000 lose their lives to overdose on opioid medications legally prescribed by medical personnel.

You really should listen to your heart. People who are more aware of their heartbeat are better at perceiving the emotions of people around them.

If so, you are perceiving your internal state a process called interoception. It's thought that to generate emotions, we first need to interpret our body's internal state of affairs.

The 5 Causes of Suffering According to Buddhism and the Ultimate Way to Overcome Them "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


We all encounter mental roadblocks in life. To feelings of self-doubt to anxiety and depression, mental hindrances can be extremely tough to deal with.

However, were not the first human beings that suffered from such obstacles.

Buddhist monks and philosophers have studied and practiced the art of freeing the mind from these negative emotions that tie us to what they call the Wheel of Suffering.

They found 5 common hindrances to the mind.

Weve gone through each of them below and weve also discussed how we can actually go about overcoming these obstacles for a peaceful and happy life.

1) The Mental Hindrance of Desire for Sensing.

What is it:

The hindrance of sensory desire is latching onto thoughts or feelings based on the pleasures of the five senses.

Buddhist master Traleg Kyabgon explains it best:

This term alludes to the minds tendency to latch on to something that attracts ita thought, a visual object, or a particular emotion. When we allow the mind to indulge in such attractions, we lose our concentration. So we need to apply mindfulness and be aware of how the mind operates; we dont necessarily have to suppress all these things arising in the mind, but we should take notice of them and see how the mind behaves, how it automatically grabs onto this and that.

How to overcome it:

To overcome the hindrance of sensory desire, the meditator must use mindfulness and acknowledge the hindrance. Then they must observe the hindrance and experience it fully. Once experienced fully, the meditator must contemplate the impermanence of the pleasant desire. Buddhist master Ajahn Brahmavamso emphasizes the technique for letting go of concern for the body and five senses completely:

In meditation, one transcends sensory desire for the period by letting go of concern for this body and its five sense activity. Some imagine that the five senses are there to serve and protect the body, but the truth is that the body is there to serve the five senses as they play in the world ever seeking delight. Indeed, the Lord Buddha once said, The five senses ARE the world and to leave the world, to enjoy the other worldly bliss of Jhana, one must give up for a time ALL concern for the body and its five senses....


Programming is hard. Thats precisely why you should learn it. "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Why is it doing that when I want it to do not that? (image credit: Pixabay)

It was far past midnight. My wife and kids had long gone to bed. But sleep was not an option for me. I had to figure it out. So I tweaked the code again, for the googolth time, and hit run.

Hmm, looks promising.

If I click here, the program should call the compute next move function. Yes. And if I click here, that function should call itself. Good. Now, if I click here, I should getnot that.


More tweaks. More errors. More hours tick by.

Learning programming is hard, I thought. My next thought?

Yes, and thats why I like it.

Also hard: rocks. (image credit: pexels)

How programming became my hobby

I began to learn how to code using JavaScript four months ago, starting with freeCodeCamps front-end curriculum. For me, programming became a hobby.

Over the past few years, I had become disappointed with my creation-to-consumption ratio. Too much of my free time was spent consuming. Netflix, podcasts, Twitter, magazines, televised sports, Facebook, blogs, Medium, newspapers, novelsthe list goes on.

There is nothing wrong with any of these activities, but they are all pure input. Even reading a great book is an act of consumption.

Sure, I was generating plenty of output in my job as a journalist, but I could no longer accept the fact that hard work was something I did only when it would result in a paycheck.

With a family and a career and other obligations, I had only so much free time. I was spending far too much of it scarfing down media. And I felt like a pig.

So far, my programming hobby hasnt result in all that much output. I made one simple app, which I wrote about in a previous article. Ive completed all the front-end challenges and projects on freeCodeCamp.

But its a start. My goal is not to create amazing things to impress people. It is simply to immerse myself in the act of creation, to challenge myself, to attempt something difficultif for no other reason than to finish it.

Roman Church Pope Assumes Ownership of All Land, People and Souls! "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Source: Enslavement Deception | by Jeff Anderson

Triple Crown of Ba'al, aka the Papal Tiara and Triregnum

In 1302 Pope Boniface issued his infamous Papal Bull Unam Sanctamthe first Express Trust. He claimed control over the whole planet which made him "King of the world". In celebration, he commissioned a gold-plated headdress in the shape of a pinecone, with an elaborate crown at its base. The pinecone is an ancient symbol of fertility and one traditionally associated with Ba'al as well as the Cult of Cybele. It also represents the pineal gland in the centre of our brainscrystalline in nature which allows us access to Source, hence, the 13-foot tall pinecone in Vatican Square. Think about why the Pontiffs would idolize a pinecone.

The 1st Crown of Crown Land

Pope Boniface VIII

Pope Boniface VIII was the first leader in history to create the concept of a Trust, but the first Testamentary Trust, through a deed and will creating a Deceased Estate, was created by Pope Nicholas V in 1455, through the Papal Bull Romanus Pontifex. This is only one of three (3) papal bulls to include the line with the incipit "For a perpetual remembrance." This Bull had the effect of conveying the right of use of the land as Real Property, from the Express Trust Unam Sanctam, to the control of the Pontiff and his successors in perpetuity. Hence, all land is claimed as "crown land". This 1st Crown is represented by the 1st Cestui Que Vie Trust, created when a child is born. It deprives us of all beneficial entitlements and rights on the land.

The 2nd Crown of the Commonwealth

The second Crown was created in 1481 with the papal bull Aeterni Regis, meaning "Eternal Crown", by Sixtus IV, being only the 2nd of three papal bulls as deeds of testamentary trusts.
This Papal Bull created the "Crown of Aragon", later known as the Crown of Spain, and is the highest sovereign and highest steward of all Roman Slaves subject....

You dont die if you fall in the water, you only die if you dont swim.


In the previous installments of this series, we have gone over the history, the progression, the motives and some systems of the etheric parasitic grid in the energetic field, as well as basic energy work in how to energetically protect and clean, and techniques to help with direct interference. In this installment, I will be describing in detail the systems, parasites, devices and implants I have seen in the body, as well as the function, symptoms, and techniques to extract said devices. If you have not read parts 1 and 2, this article will be alluding to information and awareness fully explored and explained therein, and they can be found here.

When first beginning to become aware of the parasitic construct, often times the parasites will feel or look like black blobs or bruises in the body. The descriptions provided below will be the core aspect of each implant, so may not seem familiar to someone beginning to explore this new awareness. When I say core aspect, what I mean is the conscious body of the parasite, device or implant. The black blob seen in the body originally is more often than not a cloud of miasma, or residue that the implant has been spreading around itself, almost like an octopus darkening the water around it with ink. Clearing out miasma is as simple as bringing down a vacuum tube from Source, and cleaning out anything that is not anchored into the body. Often times, this will clean out the dark energy, or smoke in the body, giving a clear view to observe the core aspect of the systems in the body. Techniques such as EFT tapping taught in the Extraction/Protection Protocol Prep video are an easy way to...


Johnson & Johnson Hit With $110M+ Verdict In Talcum Powder Linked To Cancer Lawsuit "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Johnson & Johnson on Thursday was ordered by a Missouri jury to pay over $110 million to a Virginia woman who says she developed ovarian cancer after decades of using of its talc-based products for feminine hygiene.

According to the CBS Report

Many of those lawsuits are pending in St. Louis, where the J&J has faced four prior trials, three of which resulted in $197 million verdicts against J&J and a talc supplier.

Thursdays verdict came in a lawsuit against J&J and talc supplier Imerys Talc by Lois Slemp, a resident of Virginia who is currently undergoing chemotherapy after her ovarian cancer initially diagnosed in 2012 returned and spread to her liver.
Slemp claimed she developed cancer after four decades of using talc-containing products produced by J&J, including J&Js Baby Powder and Shower to Shower Powder.

The jury awarded $5.4 million in compensatory damages and said J&J was 99 percent at fault while Imerys was just 1 percent. It awarded punitive damages of $105 million against J&J and $50,000 against Imerys.

Once again weve shown that these companies ignored the scientific evidence and continue to deny their responsibilities to the women of America,

Ted Meadows, a lawyer for Slemp and other plaintiffs, said in a statement.

Johnson & Johnson settlement Class Members include all consumers who bought one or more of the following bedtime products within the U.S., the District of Columbia or any U.S. territories,  including  Puerto  Rico,  Guam  and  the  Virgin  Islands between July 1, 2010 and Aug. 31, 2016 according to the class actions website

Illuminati Plan to Control Mankind Through E.T. False Flag "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Dr. Wernher von Braun, the head of the Nazi rocket program, was brought to America after the war because our government considered his knowledge and expertise too vital to fall into enemy hands.

Dr. von Braun brought a wealth of information gleaned from other top Nazi scientists like his boss, SS General Hans Kammler. Von Braun was privy to work on anti gravity propulsion vehicles.

With access to NASA's secret programs, von Braun apparently began to see the "big picture" regarding the true goals of America's space program and how the military-industrial complex was manipulating it according to a secret, hidden agenda.

Are You a Human Being or Just a Programmable Life Form? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There is no clear line dividing science fiction and reality. If we can think it, we can create it, and so the world becomes a stranger and more interesting place by the day. This applies both to our individual universes within, and with the outer world at large.

We really have no idea at all what it means to be a human. We dont know where we come from or how we got to this shining gem of a planet. We dont know why the earth is covered with the mysteries of antiquity and the monolithic footprints of giants. We certainly have little understanding of our fate, nor much of the heavy forces at play against us.

But we do have the brilliant spark of consciousness as well as free will to help mould our 3-D experience during the wink of time that passes from birth to what we fear is death. We are in a sense programmable life forms, and so the question is, what are being programmed with and by whom?

The Science Fiction Side

Programmable life forms (PLFs) are thought to be artificially created biological organisms that move about autonomously, yet within the operating parameters prescribed to them by their creators.

Some surmise that PLFs are nano-sized creatures designed to invade the human body to influence its performance, affect the mind in some dastardly way, or to collect information. Others say PLFs are more complex extra-terrestrial creatures, similar to grey aliens, or other cold entities, perhaps created by the military or alien scientists, tasked with analyzing and influencing human behavior, with experimenting on us as well as ruling over us.

Public information about this is sketchy at best, with some claiming that the Pentagon and Black-Ops military programs have already pioneered and deployed these technologies for purposes of psychological and physical warfare. Others believe that PLFs are part of a sophisticated array of mind-control technologies presently engaged in manipulating the human race, along with HAARP, chemtrails, GMOs, nano-fibers, vaccines, ELFs, and so much more.

The common thread is that PLFs...

Canterbury Mayoral Forum raises concerns about proposed fluoridation bill "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Giving health boards the power to decide whether public water supplies should be fluoridated would force ratepayers to shoulder the burden without consultation, the Canterbury Mayoral Forum says.

The Health Amendment Bill (Fluoridation of Drinking Water) proposes giving local health boards the power to decide whether fluoride should be added to public drinking water supplies.

The bill is being considered by parliaments health select committee, which has been urged to ensure the cost of the plan would lie with the decision maker.

The Canterbury Mayoral forum has, in broad terms and in a submission to the committee, supported the move to shift such decisions from councils to district health boards.

Even so, Timaru District Mayor and forum deputy chairman Damon Odey said the forum remained concerned about how fluoridation would be funded and how communities would be consulted.

The bill would take the decision from council but the cost of implementing the decision would be borne by the ratepayers whose supplies were fluoridated, he said.

Councils would have to levy an appropriate rate on their communities to ensure a decision made by another body a body not influenced by councils budget consultation processes was carried out.

That was just not on.

The cost should lie with the decision maker, Odey said.

The forum is made up of nine district councils, including the Christchurch City Council and the Canterbury Regional Council (Environment Canterbury).

Odey presented the forums submission to the committee in March, while Christchurch made its own submission.

The mayors said the bill did not achieve the objective of relieving territorial authorities (TAs) of having to make decisions about public health matters.

DHBs are not required to make directions (or not) on fluoridation, and there is no clear statement that TAs are not able to make decisions on fluoridation, they say in the submission.

Therefore it appears that if the DHB does not elect to use the bills new power, the relevant council will remain the decision-maker.

If decision-making power was being removed from councils, an express statement should be made in the bill.

There were mixed views from Canterbury councils as to which agency should be the decision-maker  but most agreed councils should not that responsibility.

National leadership is required in relation to decisions on the fluoridation of drinking water, they say.

However, shifting respon...


The MEASLES VIRUS DOESN'T EXIST. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I made a big error regarding the Measels lawsuit that needs to be corrected

According to the ruling of this lawsuit, the MMR shot, which is the one most associated with autism, is administered for a fiction

When commenting about the German lawsuit that was won, which claimed the measels virus does not exist, I associated the virus with chicken pox. That was an error. Measels is not associated with chicken pox. So I am going to post the entire reader comment with regard to the lawsuit, which judged that the measels virus does not exist.

Carlos sent: Hi Jim I'm Carlos. Please publish this information before it is censored, already one of the original free reports has been deleted. The news is that The MEASLES VIRUS DOESN'T EXIST.

In the year 2011 the German biologist Stefan Lanka published on his website the challenge that anyone able to prove without shadow of doubt the existence of the measles virus, will be awarded with 100.000 ($105.000) actual exchange. This german biologist affirmed that the measles is a psychosomatic disease developed in the individual due to great trauma.

The German Doctor David Barden accepted the challenge and sent by e-mail to the Doctor Barden all available evidence that confirmed the existence of the virus. Doctor Lanka ignored the evidence and rejected the payment, so Dr Barden sued Dr Lanka claiming the money.

In the first trial a Court ruled that Stefan Lanka had to pay, and Lanka challenged the sentence so the Higher Regional Court of Stuttgart had to confirm his thesis. This brought the case before the highest court in Germany. So the first Civil Senate of the BGF confirm the sentence issue by the Regional Court as report.

Dr Andreas Podbielski was appointed consultant by the Court to confirm that the Scientists misinterperted the photographs of the ribosomes (small organs in the cells that produce proteins) that these organs where part of the measels virus. After decades of this mistake they mentally built the virus structure and this failure wasn't discovered because they didn't make control experiments to confirm the results. The leading and most important institute in Germany - The National Institute of Reference of Measles and the Robert Koch Institute made the studies but failed to published or hand over the results of the studies.

As a consecuence of this sentence All the works and studies - National and International, that affirm the existence of measles virus and its infectious capacity were declared by the court to be of no scientific character and have thus been deprived of their legal basis.

The standoff has riveted a nation where farmers land is often taken from them for development.

Some of the more than three dozen officials and police officers taken hostage last weekend were later released, but others were still being held in Dong Tam on Friday, according to rights activists and state news outlets. Residents had erected barbed-wire barricades to block access to a part of the village where the hostages were said to be held.

The episode has developed into one of the more dramatic confrontations in recent years between ordinary Vietnamese and their authoritarian government. The top city official in Hanoi, the capital, was expected to meet with villagers on Friday. State-run news outlets reported that officials had promised to review the underlying reasons for the land dispute, and to refrain from using violence.

Underground dome home with living roof and greenhouse

Ive been very interested in underground dome homes with living roofs for many years after my dome building Instructable went viral. The other day I was watching a video about Hacking Aircrete that showed the dome home featured here. One side has a geodesic greenhouse and the other has a skylight.

One major challenge is preventing moisture problems from roof leaks. The skylight and greenhouse glazing in particular need to be sealed carefully. One option is to us...


HUFF-POST: Congress Gives Jeff Sessions $0 To Go After Medical Marijuana Laws. Its the latest sign that a major federal crackdown on state pot laws isnt likely "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Link to full HUFf-POST article and video

WASHINGTON Congress, once again, is blocking the Justice Department from spending any money that interferes with state medical marijuana laws.

In their newly unveiled budget bill, lawmakers included a provision, known as the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment, that allows states to carry on with crafting their own medical marijuana policies without fear of federal intervention. The bill, which funds the government through the end of September, is expected to pass this week.

Heres the full text of the marijuana provision:

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...

New Research Links Hand Sanitizer Use With Thyroid Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A new study published in Occupational and Environmental Medicine may give you pause for thought the next time you reach for your favorite hand sanitizer. Weve long known that the chemicals present in these products arent the best thing to be applying to the skin, not to mention theyre exceptionally drying. But occasional use cant be that harmful, right? As it turns out, using chemical hand sanitizers can actually triple the risk of developing thyroid cancer.

The research team reviewed data from over 900 patients 462 adults with thyroid cancer in 2010 and 2011 and compared them with 498 control subjects. They subsequently calculated exposure to the biocide chemicals based on both reported use and detailed information regarding occupational exposures. Those who work in medicine or cleaning like healthcare providers in hospitals, home health assistants and professional building cleaners were found to have the highest biocide exposure.

Although not involved with the study, Laura Koniver MD summarizes the studys results as follows:

  • Women with any occupational exposure at all were 48% more likely to develop thyroid cancer.
  • Men with any occupational exposure at all were 300% more likely to develop thyroid cancer 3 X the normal rates of thyroid cancers!
  • The over all risk of using biocides increased thyroid cancer rates by 65%
  • For those with highest cumulative exposures (associated with jobs that require hand sanitizer use such as health professions) the risk of thyroid cancer more than doubled.
  • These biocide chemicals are known hormone disrupters for example, Triclosan has been shown to interrupt and decrease the levels of several different thyroid hormones (necessary for growth and metabolism.)

How to setup Continuous Deployment to AWS S3 using CircleCI in just 30 minutes "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Continuous Deployment might seem complicated at first, but dont be intimidated. In this tutorial, Ill show you how to implement Continuous Deployment to AWS S3 for a static website using CircleCI in less than 30 minutes.

Youll need both an AWS account and a CircleCI account. If you dont have these yet, start by opening a free account for AWS here and a free CircleCI account here . Both AWS and CircleCI have a free tier thats more than enough for what you will need for this tutorial.

Getting the code

First you will start by forking and cloning the following project repo on Github: S3ContinuousDeploy or if you prefer you can try this tutorial with one of your own repos as long as its a static site.

Next you will add the project to your CircleCI account.

Next select the S3ContinuousDeploy repo you just cloned and click build project.

Choose the S3ContinuousDeploy repo and click build project

At this point the build will run, but you will be getting an error message warning you that the settings for your project couldnt be detected. Which is normal since we dont have a circle.yml configuration file in place, which is what you will be doing next.

Looking at the docs at CircleCI you can get an idea of what the circle.yml should look like. Unfortunately the circle.yml file example provided will not work as is and will need some tweaking, so lets do that.

Below is the modified circle.yml file you will be using:

Basically CircleCI creates the build within a Docker container, and the override under dependencies property (line 3) that I added instructs CircleCI to install the AWS command line interface (awscli) that will be used in this case to help manage and facilitate deployment to AWS S3.

So make sure you add the file and commit it to your repo. Finally make sure you push this and other commits you might have made before you proceed to the next step.

As per CircleCI documentation the command for deploying is:

Hurricane Katrina, The Eye-opening Disaster "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A1U6kAETUmL._SL1500_On the 7th of May 1718, New Orleans (La Nouvelle-Orlans) was founded by the French Mississippi Company, under the command of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. Not long before that date, Bienville, who was the Governor of Louisiana at the time, set out from Dauphin Island to select a place on the banks of the Mississippi River for a new settlement. Bienville and his people travelled for many days up the river before they found their ideal location. The locale was wet, heavily forested and, even then, clouded by mosquitoes, but it had certain advantages over other possible sites. The terrain was generally higher than it was along most of the river and only a narrow strip of land, traversed part way by a bayou, separated the site from Lake Pontchartrain. Access to the spot named New Orleans from the Gulf was afforded by Lakes Borgne and Pontchatrain as well as by the river. Indeed, it was thought that the lake route would be paramount. Bienville left fifty men to clear the land and build some houses and returned temporarily to Dauphin Island. (...


Voters secretly excited about destroying their childrens future "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

As the General Election looms, like an iceberg or a prostate examination, the UKs electorate is surreptitiously looking forward to the prospect of sticking it to the young. With a ragtag collection of politicians to vote for, all offering to take Britain back to the glorious Age of Steam, grown-ups will be able to wipe that smug look off cherubic millennial faces, ban all sleeve tattoos and finally pull the plug on Ed Sheeran.

With their scorched earth manifesto, the Tory Party are ahead in the polls, with the promise of one massive tax-free party before the Apocalypse but where the washing-up gets left for someone else. Explained one grandparent: To be honest, I cant stand children, with their iPhone 10s, flawless skin and constant whining about the environment. Who gives a sh$t about global warming? The cold plays havoc with my lumbago and my prize roses.

Lounging in a hot-tub, one parent explained why all children were lazy, entitled narcissists: Growing up in the 80s was tough we didnt have Google we had Pong. Have you ever tried ponging porn? And Pong Maps only covers Wimbledon. So what if my kids have to take on more debt if they go to University? Its not my debt. And if they think their inheritance will pay off the remainder, guess again Im mortgaged and coked up to the eyeballs.

Traditionally the older generations aspire to leave more for the children, but that only applies now to melanomas and coastal erosion. Sadly, anyone under 16 is starting to realize that there is no point breaking the glass ceiling, as it is made from asbestos and is probably not covered by their tenancy agreement. Said one Tory voter: Ironically I will be getting away with it, despite those meddling kids.

Trump Seeking Change in Libel Laws? "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

To win defamation lawsuits, plaintiffs must prove falsified statements or information causing material harm either negligently or willfully.

A thin line at times separates free expression from defamation in America. Slander and libel laws are more defendant-friendly than the other way around.

At the same time, false statements or information harming the reputation of individuals, businesses or other entities arent protected under the Constitutions First Amendment.

Section 230 of the US Communications Decency Act absolves Internet service providers and web sites of defamation liability over user comments and content why Facebook, Google and other online platforms arent libelous for material on their sites.

If plaintiffs are public figures like Trump or members of Congress, the standard of willful malice must be met to be deemed libelous.

Besides federal standards, each state has its own, complicating things further. Weighing in on the issue, Supreme Court rulings held that

Why the GOPs Repeal and Replace Bill (AHCA) Is *Worse* than Obamacare [Reason Podcast] "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

It locks in many of the worst elements of Obamacare while making actual market-friendly reforms next-to-impossible.

In a new Reason Podcast, Reasons Peter Suderman tells Nick Gillespie why The American Health Care Act (AHCA) not only fails to really repeal and replace Obamcare but actually makes the system even worse.

Indeed, the AHCA, which passed by four votes on a strictly party-line vote, locks in Obamacares system of tax subsidies and while it ends the loathsome individual mandate, it effectively replaces it with an equally ineffective and distortive penalty for failing to maintain constant coverage. The AHCA is also a disaster in terms of process: The GOP House majority rushed it throughout with waiting for the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to score its costs and benefits.

RAW vs. JPEG: An Ultimate Guide "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

I did not plan on writing a dedicated article on RAW vs JPEG. Why? I thought this ship had sailed long ago and the time of heated debates over which format is better was well into the past. But, what I realized in teaching photography is that this topic is still confusing and unclear for every generation of newcomers who decide to join the exciting and wonderful realm of photography.

Here is my attempt to write the only article you will ever need to understand the difference between RAW and JPEG. Hopefully, you will have a profound Zen experience and move forward with your photography never having to think about the issue again!

First Encounter with RAW

When RAW format became available in modern DSLRs, I did not have a camera that supported it. I had read a few articles about the new format but the advantages of shooting in RAW were not entirely clear. Instead, I was converted into a RAW fanboy by purely empiric experience. I somehow got access to a RAW photo I do not remember exactly how or from where and opened it in Photoshop. When I started playing around with the image, I almost had a heart attack from pure excitement.

In Photoshop or any other editing program for that matter, when you start moving the editing sliders for things like Contrast and Saturation, you keep pushing the slider further and further until the image breaks up. This is when you know that youve reached the limit and cannot go any further. You need to dial it down.

What I experienced during my first encounter with a RAW image was the latitude of how much further I could push it by a factor of two or more.

Even without fully understanding how the new format worked, I was already sold. I never looked back. The experience was the principal motivation for me to purchase my first DSLR a Canon Digital Rebel that supported RAW format.

Here is the best explanation of the difference between RAW and JPEG in the most extremely simple terms I have ever found.

Childrens Hospitals Admissions for Suicidal Thoughts or Actions Double During Past Decade

Study at the 2017 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting also finds seasonal variations in cases, with most occurring during spring and fall.

SAN FRANCISCO The number of children and adolescents admitted to childrens hospitals for thoughts of suicide or self-harm more than doubled during the last decade, according to new research being presented at the 2017 Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting in San Francisco.

Researchers will present the study abstract, Trends in Suicidality and Serious Self-Harm for Children 5-17 Years at 32 U.S. Childrens Hospitals, 2008-2015, on Sunday, May 7, at the Moscone West Convention Center.

The study included administrative data from 32 childrens hospitals across the U.S. and identified all emergency department and inpatient encounters between 2008 and 2015 for children between 5 and 17 years old with a discharge diagnosis of suicidality or serious self- harm.

The researchers found a total of 118,363 such encounters at the childrens hospitals during the period studied. Further analysis showed the annual percentage of all encounters identified as suicidality or self-harm more than doubled over the study period, increasing from 0.67 percent in 2008 to 1.79 percent in 2015.

Slightly more than half the patients with suicidal thoughts or actions (totaling 59,631) were with 15- to 17-year-olds, while 36.9 percent (43,682) were with 12- to 14-year-olds. An additional 12.7 percent (15,050) of the encounters were with children between ages 5 and 11.

Significant increases were noted in all age groups but were higher among the older children, said lead author Gregory Plemmons, MD, an associate professor of pediatrics at Monroe Carell Jr. Childrens Hospital at Vanderbilt. Teens between ages 15 and 17 had an average annual increase of 0.27 percentage points, and 12- to 14-year-olds an average of 0.25 percent each year. This compares to 0.02 percent for 5- to 11-year-olds.

The study also revealed seasonal variations in the suicidality and self-harm cases...


Wild Planet: Drone Shots of Wildlife Found Across the World "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Hawaiian photographer and drone pilot Karim Iliya has released a new short film titled Wild Planet. It contains beautiful aerial shots of wildlife found in different corners of the world.

With the domestication of animals, humans came to see themselves as the masters of the planet, and the animals living upon it beasts or servants to be killed for food, put to work, or placed on this planet to serve our needs, Iliya writes. But a closer look into the lives of animals reveals a fascinating and complex world.

To capture a birds eye view of some of our planets most incredible animals, Iliya took his drones (a DJI inspire 1 X5, Phantom 4 Pro, and Phantom 3 Pro) to Peru, Sri Lanka, Kenya, Ghana, Hawaii, Kamchatka Russia, and Iceland.

Glutamine Benefits, Supplementation and Side Effects "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Glutamine is an amino acid that is vitally important to health and well-being. As the most abundant amino acid in the body, it supports more metabolic processes than any other.[1, 2] Glutamine encourages a healthy gut, promotes normal blood sugar levels, and its a building block for muscles.[3, 4] In the body, glutamine is stored in skeletal muscle; it circulates in the blood to the kidneys, liver, intestines, and immune cells where it helps perform critical functions.[5]

Benefits of Glutamine

Glutamine supports a number of important functions in the body, including the immune system, the bodys detoxification abilities, gut health, and even muscle growth and repair. Lets take a closer look at how glutamine enables these actions.

Detoxification and Liver Health

Consuming meat can cause ammonia to build up in the body, negatively affecting the brain and liver. As support for the kidneys and liver, adequate glutamine stimulates the

How to Post Photos to Instagram From a Desktop Browser "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Heads up: you can now upload photos to Instagram from a desktop browser using a special, unofficial trick. In this step-by-step tutorial, Ill show you how its done.

Since Instagram was first released, it has only allowed users to create new posts using the official Instagram app. There are some options for posting images using third-party apps, but none are officially supported. Using them runs the risk of being shadow banned, which stops your posts from showing up in hashtag or location searches for around a week.

Shadow bans seem to be becoming more common as Instagram cracks down on the unauthorized use of their API. The biggest recent example of this crackdown is the closure of Instagress, which was a botting service that automatically followed users and liked posts.

The good news is that it appears Instagram has finally made it possible to post images from their website. This opens up posting content for any user with a mobile device. By default this feature is available on any phone or tablet Web browser, but not on your desktop.

Keep in mind that its unclear whether Instagram might shadow ban users for using this method. Shadow bans appear to be reserved for users who are using third-party apps or services to post to Instagram, and this method uses the official website. So far I pers...

A Birth Story, Part II "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

(Like many Americans, I am thinking about health care and health insurance lately. Ive really only ever had one major run-in with health issues and the health system, and it was intensive, both literally and figuratively. I had a baby that was born at 25.5 weeks in 2008. Hes a blooming, Minecraft-and-Star-Wars-loving almost-nine-year-old now, but this experience was harrowing and involved. Since my pre-existing conditions are pregnancy and premature labor, and I am guessing I have handed the latter condition down to my boy, I thought I would retell the story. I wrote about it as it happened, and it has been shared on an old blog. Part one is here.)

Happy Birthday, Part II: The Rest of Wednesday (May 2008)

When we were getting out of the car at the clinic, the clinic called. The nurse said that the doctor who had reviewed my file and who was going see me wanted me to go straight to the hospital.

Well, Im here, I said.

Oh. OK. Never mind; come on in.

I checked in and waited until my appointment time 20 minutes, which was bothering Pete, as they just said that they wanted me to go to the hospital. I was trying not to get upset about anything at this point. Its just not helpful. They brought me in and weighed me (165 pounds), and put me into a little room, just like at a usual appointment. The nurse took my blood pressure, and had me wait on the table in my socks and shirt with a drape over my legs.

Waiting is fun.

This doctor was newnot my midwife, and her manner was very calm and a little too therapeutic for me. It did not make me feel more relaxed; rather, the opposite. She asked me my symptoms, checked for the heartbeat, which was thankfully there, and then checked me with the speculum. When she inserted it, a lot of fluid came out. I heard it raining onto the metal basin, and I knew that was not good. I had still been hopeful that I was just having some urethral control issuesodd how something that would be otherwise so undesirable would have been a gift in this instance.

Column: Pagan Women Respond to Unbalanced Dress Codes "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

As spring gets into full steam and the weather gets warmer, clothing often tends to become more revealing. Men begin to wear more shorts and t-shirts while women move their wardrobe toward sundresses, skirts, and tops that reveal both midriff and shoulders. It makes perfect sense given the warming weather, but different expectations for how men and women dress can often be disproportionate and inappropriately sexualized.

Hollywood has weighed in on the problem.The 1992 film A League of Their Own touches on the very real and quite dangerous practice of requiring female professional baseball players to wear skirts. 2016s Hidden Figuresstepped into questioning the requirement of skirts and high heels. But, while those movies covered historical topics, the issue is just as current today as it was in the past.

The dangerous dress codes of the All American Girls Professional Baseball League [Wikimedia Commons].

In March, NPR reported that United Airlines prevented two young girls from boarding a flight because they were wearing leggings. Another, who appeared to be around 10, had to put on a dress to board. At the same time, a man wearing shorts was allowed on the plane. It turned out that these passengers were flying for free on employee buddy passes, but the appearance remained that the women in the situation were subject to a much stricter set of dress codes than the man.

You also can often see this tension play out in high schools this time of year. Through the spring, stories start to pop up in news feeds about dress expectation for girls in both the classroom and at events such as school dances. A recent story told of a dehumanizing dress code poster aimed at keeping prom-going female students from being too revealing. A story last year told of graduates writing in their yearbooks final message thoughts to the effect of, Im sorry if my spaghetti straps distracted all the boys from their education.

The Forgotten Island Destroyed by the Gulf Oil Spill "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Cat-Island-Oil-SpillBy Vic Bishop

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion and subsequent massive oil spill has become old news, and very little consideration is given to what the disaster still means for wildlife and the sensitive ecosystems of coastal Louisiana. Its long been back to business as usual for British Petroleum (BP), but for conservationists and locals of the region, the damage to Cat Island will never be forgotten.

A former wildlife refuge and Pelican rookery, Cat Island was a mere 5.5-acre landmass, yet it was home to a number of species of rare and migratory birds who would return each year to hatch the next generation. After the gulf oil spill, millions of gallons of crude oil bombarded the island, and efforts to prevent oil from drenching the mangroves and delicate sand beaches of Cat Island proved futile.

UK Photographer Detained Under Anti-Terror Law for Photos of a Town Hall "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

A BBC photographer was detained for an hour in the UK this past Thursday under the countrys anti-terror. His offense? Shooting photos of a town hall.

The Guardian reports that photographer Eddie Mitchell was taking pictures outside Hove Town Hall when a passing civilian police staff member questioned him. After Mitchell declined to explain who he was or what he was doing, The Guardian says, he was detained under Section 43 of the UKs Terrorism Act, which allows law enforcement to stop and search people they reasonably suspect to be a terrorist.

The Sussex police force tells The Guardian that officers suspected the photographer of being a terrorist because he declined to provide information or identification, and that if he had cooperated the situation would have been quickly resolved. Heres the stop and search form that was given to Mitchell:

But Mitchell disagrees with The Guardian and the police on what happened: he says he did explain what he was doing multiple times.

They didnt ask for my name until 30 mins in, the photographer tells PetaPixel. I was stopped and questioned by a civilian member of staff who asked what I was doing I answered her three times they were just not the answers she wanted to hear.

I told her three times I am a photographer taking pics of the town hall, he continues. She then asked me to make a formal statement inside.

Are Microwave Industries and Utilities Operating The Way Talcum Powder Makers Obfuscated? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

AMI Smart meter dangersBy Catherine J. Frompovich

If any readers are out-of-the-box-thinkers, as Im accused of being, then maybe you ought to think about whats happened, and even possible, in the legal arena regarding microwave technologies health damages when juxtaposed with Johnson & Johnsons talcum powder product legal liability, lawsuits, judgments and settlements because their product and talc, in particular, was considered a possible carcinogen, specifically since 2006.

About 1700 lawsuits have been filed against talcum powder producers J&J, Sanofi US, Imerys Talc, Valeant Pharmaceuticals and Chattem. Imerys, however, mined the talc, a mineral, according to the plaintiffs lawsuits, which claimed the talc caused their cancers. Some talc in its natural form contains asbestos, a cancer-causing agent, which was alleged to have been inhaled by some product users.

One J&J talcum powder user of 40 years, Gloria Ristesund of Sioux Fall, South Dakota, underwent a hysterectomy. Talc was found in her ovarian tissue upon assay. The jury awarded her $55 MILLION, as her case charged J&J with fraud, negligence and conspiracy.

Serene Photos Highlight the Tranquil Beauty of 100 Japanese Gardens "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Japanese Garden

Reflections at Isuien, Nara

Japan is known for its breathtaking gardens that are the epitome of natural serenity. As an American, Marc Peter Keane spent the better part of 20 years in Kyoto learning and practicing landscape design. This was no small feat; he was the first foreigner to obtain a working visa as a landscape architect. Since returning to the U.S., Keane has settled in upstate New York where he uses his vast knowledge and experience to build Japanese gardens for clients who wish to imbue their space with beauty and tranquility.

Keane is an expert in Japanese garden design. In addition to construction, he's also a researcher and educator on the subject. This has culminated into a book called Japanese Garden Notes: A Visual Guide to Elements and Design. In it, Keane walks us through 100 of these spaces, including over 400 photographs with brief observations about the featured gardens. Their individual elements are highlighted and discussed, such as how the placement of stepping stones and walls help shape our experience as we explore these spaces.

As evidenced through this selection of photographs, the garden design ideas vary in their composition and execution. Some include luscious and open green spaces, while others are more contained and have meticulous arrangements. Each will make you want to go and connect with nature.

Japanese Garden Notes: A Visual Guide to Elements and Design is now available through Amazon.

ALERT : Whooping Cough Outbreak Caused By Vaccinated Children In Alabama "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The Alabama Department of Public Health is notifying the public of its investigation into several cases of pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough.

Public health officials say there are currently six laboratory-confirmed cases of the highly-contagious respiratory disease in Chambers County, which is located on the Alabama-Georgia line north of Auburn.

According to ABC 31

 Those who have pertussis are vaccinated children.

Our concern is that children who have been vaccinated have contracted the disease, said ADPH Assistant State Health Officer Dr. Karen Landers, We also want to make sure that we take all the necessary steps to follow up fully with those who have been exposed and educate those who may have come in contact with a person currently ill with the disease.

Could Pollinator Drones Soon Replace Bees? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Scientists in Japan have created tiny drones that pollinate plants; and if bees disappear, the insect-size drones are intended to replace them.

Right now the drones are not autonomous, and theyve never been tested outside the lab. But they might one day be a necessity. In recent years, bee populations have sharply declined, and bee deaths have been blamed on everything from pesticides to diseases to climate change. The results of a Greenpeace investigation published in the fall of 2016 reveal that unpublished field trials by pesticide manufacturers show that their products cause severe harm to honeybees at high levels. [1]

But why switch to organic farming when you can just build exorbitantly priced robots?

Eijiro Miyako, chemist from the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan, found the perfect substance for pollen collection in a decade-old bottle of sticky gel from an earlier experiment he stumbled across while cleaning his lab. The substance, an ionic liquid gel, consists of a collection of complex molecules linked in long chains, and it has the optimal stickiness to pick up pollen grains.

Miyakos group rubbed the sticky gel on ants and flies other types of pollinators and put them on flowers. Each bug was soon covered in pollen.

For use with drones, the gel is a dual-purpose substance: It collects and deposits pollen, and also interacts with light waves to camouflage the drones. The camouflage could come in handy in the future as protection against predators if such drones were deployed in swarms. [1], [2]

Read: First Time Ever U.S. Adds Bees to Endangered Species List

The team then assembled a 1.6-by-1.6-inch remote-controlled drone equipped with tiny hairs similar to the hairs found on bees. Miyako coated the hairs with the gel and flew the drone into the flowers of Japanese lilies. The tiny robot picked up pollen like a natural pollinator. When it was directed to another flower to release the pollen grains, it successfully pollinated the plant just as the researchers hoped it would. [1]

Dr. Who Created The Small Pox Vaccine Injected It In His 11 Month Old Son As A Test "IndyWatch Feed Health"

This Europe in the 18th Century. Smallpox is everywhere, 400,000 Europeans are dying from it each year. And theres no cure, but there might be hope theres a doctor who thinks hes found a way to fight the disease. All you need to do is let him infect you with some good, old-fashioned, cowpox-infected pus. Of course, there is this other doctor who says, Sure, you could do that, but it will might make your face look like a cows.

Jenner was an English doctor, the one most responsible for the smallpox vaccination and the controlling force of early immunology.

Edward Jenner was born in Berkeley, Gloucestershire on 17 May 1749, the son of the local vicar(a member of the clergy in charge of a chapel). At the age of 14, he was apprenticed to a local surgeon and then trained in London. In 1772, he returned to Berkeley and spent most the rest of his career as a doctor in his native town.

In 1796, he carried out his now famous experiment on eight-year-old James Phipps. Jenner inserted pus taken from a cowpox pustule and inserted it into an incision on the boys arm. Pretty disgusting right? He was testing his theory, drawn from the folklore of the countryside, that milkmaids who suffered the mild disease of cowpox never contracted smallpox, one of the greatest killers of the period, particularly among children. Jenner subsequently thought that having been inoculated with cowpox Phipps was immune to smallpox. He submitted a paper to the Royal Society in 1797 describing his experiment but was told that his ideas were too far fetched and that he needed more proof. Determined, Jenner experimented on several other children, including his own 11-month-old son! In 1798, the results were finally published and Jenner coined the word vaccine from the Latin vacca for cow.

Jenner was widely ridiculed. Critics, especially the clergy, claimed it was repulsive and ungodly to inocculate someone with material from a diseased animal. A satirical cartoon of 1802 showed people who had been vaccinated sprouting cows heads. He died on 26 January 1823.


Heres One Photographers Camera Kit at the Kentucky Derby "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

ESPN photographer and Nikon Ambassador Bill Frakes is covering his 35th Kentucky Derby this weekend. This crazy photo shows the absolutely massive camera kit hes bringing to cover the famous horse race.

Frakes will have nearly 50 DSLR camera bodies (split between D5, D810, and D500 tiers) and a huge number of lenses of all types at his fingertips to capture every newsworthy moment. Hes planning on setting up and using each of the cameras.

This is the entire collection of cameras except for my handheld, Frakes writes. Im pretty sure I have everything I need.

Theres also some gear not seen in the photo: Frakes will be using 35 Manfrotto magic arms, some tripods, and many superclamps to position the cameras and hold them in place.

No idea how many [photos] we will shoot, the photographer said in response to a question on his Facebook post. As you know with remotes you have to be prepared to cover a lot of possibilities the horses didnt tell me who is going to win. With multimedia the number of frames used is significant.

And if youve ever wanted to see hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of Nikon camera gear arranged neatly on a table, now you have.

Resveratrol may Benefit Your Arteries, Especially if You Have Type 2 Diabetes "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Resveratrol a substance found in red wine, peanuts, and berries may reduce artery stiffness in people with Type 2 diabetes, according to a new study presented in early May at the American Heart Associations 2017 Scientific Sessions in Minneapolis. [1]

The studys senior author, Dr. Naomi M. Hamburg, of the Boston University School of Medicine, said:

This adds to emerging evidence that there may be interventions that may reverse the blood vessel abnormalities that occur with aging and are more pronounced in people with Type 2 diabetes and obesity.

Read: 4 Health-Protective Qualities of Resveratrol

For the study, researchers recruited 57 obese, middle-aged patients with Type 2 diabetes. Nearly 2/3 of the participants were African American, and slightly more than half were women.

The aorta, the largest artery in the body, stiffens with age and illness, increasing the risk of heart attacks and strokes. Researchers tested the participants arterial stiffness using a test called the carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity, or CFPWV, after the volunteers consumed daily doses of 100 mg/day of resveratrol for 2 weeks, followed by 300 mg/day of resveratrol for 2 weeks.

The test was performed a second time after participants underwent comparable placebo dosing for a total of 4 weeks.

In addition, researchers assessed the ability of the participants blood vessels to expand and relax as needed to allow for changes in blood flow, an important indicator of healthy blood vessel function.

Overall, the study found that participants who took the resveratrol supplements had less arterial stiffness, but it wasnt statistically significant.

In a subset of 23 patients who had severe aortic stiffness at the beginning of the study, however, the 300 mg dose of resveratrol reduced aortic stiffness by 9.1%, and the 100 mg dose reduced aortic stiffness by 4.8%. [2]

Among the patients that took a placebo for 4 weeks, aortic stiffening worsened.

Past studies in animals showed that resveratrol activates a gene (SIRT1) that seems to delay aging and development of several diseases. To test whether the same thing occurs in humans, researchers took samples from the blood vessel linings of 7 patients and looked at SIRT1 activity. After resveratrol supplementation, they found that gene activity increased slightly...


This Photographer Put a Giant Mirror In a Salt Flat "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Australian photographer Murray Fredericks has spent years visiting and photographing the salt flats at Lake Eyre, the lowest point in Australia. For his latest project, titled Vanity, Fredericks brought a giant mirror and created gorgeous, abstract landscape photos at dawn, dusk, and night.

After trekking into the salt flat with his tent, camera, and gear, Fredericks camps himself for weeks at a time. When he spots a scene thats just right, the photographer places his 1200x1800mm (~4x6ft) mirror into an inch of salt water and uses it to redirect our gaze away from the background.

The result is a creative combination of color, abstraction, and minimalism.

Rather than employing the mirror as a symbol of self-reflection, Fredericks redirects our gaze away from ourselves and into the immense environment, his project statement says. His translations of the landscape verge on otherworldly; mirrors float gently like windows or portals, offering a dual experience of looking both into another realm and out, as the lakes glass-like surface reflects an infinite space above.

Heres a behind-the-scenes look at how these photos were made:

Meadville: Fluoride forum sways one MAWA member "IndyWatch Feed Health"

The May 4 community discussion of water fluoridation was just what the doctor ordered, according to members of the five-person Meadville Area Water Authority board.

In fact, the forum proved so informative that at least one board member already has decided how he will be voting on the issue.

Other members expressed their satisfaction with the forum, the presentations from both sides and the contributions by members of the public, but said they would continue to weigh the evidence and opinions that had been offered.

What I took away from the presentation is that our customers want to decide and control what they put into their bodies, board member Hal Tubbs wrote Friday in an email to the Tribune explaining his decision to vote against fluoridation. They dont want a fluoride additive forced on them.

There is a place for fluoride, Tubbs wrote, but dentists offices and schools are more appropriate venues than the community water system.

Tubbs cited the comments made by MAWA users following the expert presentations as especially important in swaying his opinion on the controversial topic. Tubbs counted 14 speakers opposed to fluoridation and 11 in favor.

Despite the seemingly comparable totals and an audience at large that other board members saw as evenly divided, Tubbs all but dismissed the 11 Meadville residents who spoke in favor. Six of them, he said, were wearing T-shirts that indicated their affiliation with the pro-fluoridation Meadville Smiles group, and two others were doctors, which he also said linked them to Meadville Smiles. Two of the remaining pro-fluoridation speakers were politicians, Tubbs noted in disregarding their input.

This process of elimination left one remaining pro-fluoride speaker, perhaps the only independent voice in favor of water fluoridation, according to Tubbs.

This tells me that actual customers are against fluoridated water by a count of 14 to one, Tubbs wrote.

In a follow-up interview, Tubbs said that he was not discounting the opinions of fluoridation proponents simply because of their T-shirts or the fact that they work for the hospital.

Im discounting their opinions because theyre associated with the movement to fluoridate, he said. I dont think they were there to learn anything. I think they were there to push their point.

Theyre activists and not just people who were concerned with whats in the water and wanted to get their questions answered.

Even if the pro-fluoridation speakers were actual MAWA customers, Tubbs sa...

Artist Draws Portraits of People from Behind to Give New Perspective of Visual Identity "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Nettie Wakefield Reversed Portraits Reversed Portrait Series Pencil Drawings

Like many other artists skilled in the art of sketching, self-described pencil snob Nettie Wakefield often dabbles in portraiture. Rather than depicting people's smiling faces or distinctive profiles, however, the British artist has a unique approach to the age-old artistic practice. As evident in her one-of-a-kind Reversed Portrait pencil series, Wakefield peculiarly prefers to portray her subjects from behind.

Wakefield's unique series features studies of individuals from all walks of lifefrom school-aged girls with playful ponytails to young men clad in hats to older women with done-up do's. Using only graphite pencils and presenting merely the backs of their heads, the artist is able to produce detailed depictions of real people. Each portrait showcases both her amazing drafting skills and her remarkable knack for capturing an individual's identityall without including his or her tell-all facial features.

Wakefield's decision to draw people from such a unique angle initially arose while she was studying Art History as a graduate student. One day, during a not-so-exciting lecture, she spontaneously started to sketch a student sitting in front of her. To Wakefield, it didn't matter that she couldn't see her facein fact, that's what intrigued her.

There was this girl sitting in front of me and I couldn't see her face, she told The Jealous Curator in an interview. I was sort of left imagining who she was, and I thought that the mystery of it was quite interesting. Since then, the artist has been sketching reversed portraits of strangers, friends, and clients. You can see her process and follow the progress behind the series on Instagram.

Fred Valentine, The Cowboys Dilemma (completed 2017), charcoal on paper, 38 x 50 inches
Daffy Duck turned 80 last month. An article in Mother Jones from April  2014 included these words in its title,  Daffy Duck, Glorious Archetype of Selfishness. The article goes on to say, Daffy became the crafty, scheming, plotting back-stabber who, motivated by unrestrained selfishness, will do anything to get what he wants, but in the end always comes up short.

Innovative Program Celebrates Armenian & Native American Unity and Survival "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Bringing together two worlds in dance.

Published May 6, 2017

GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA Artists, activists, and community members gathered on April 29 and 30, 2017 at Abril Bookstore / Roslin Art Gallery to mark Days of Solidarity: Celebrating Native American and Armenian Survival. Through performances, workshops, screenings, a panel, and a closing community drum circle, this weekend program spotlighted the creative and spiritual bonds between two groups of people who have preserved and advanced their ancient cultures. Both the native peoples of the Americas and Armenians emerged from their own respective genocides to become proud, productive world citizens.

Presented by Abril Bookstore, In His Shoes, the Lakota Peoples Law Project (LPLP), the event had three objectives: strengthen solidarity between Armenians and the Indigenous native tribes of the Americas, lay the groundwork for future collaborations, and raise money for LPLPs Water Protectors Legal Defense Fund. A federally-recognized nonprofit based in Santa Cruz, CA, LPLP defends the rights of South Dakotas Native American families. They expose and respond to the epidemic of illegal seizures of Lakota children by the state of South Dakota, and their Water Protectors Legal Defense Fund provides legal defense for Indigenous leaders targeted by the government and energy companies in the Dakotas.

We were inspired by the peaceful protest at the Standing Rock Reservation, said Program Director Raffi Wartanian. We wanted to honor their courageous movement against a militarized oil industry and do something innovative in the month of April when the Armenian community so often turns inward to mourn its loss and express its outrage against genocide denial. We are not alone in confronting such discrimination. Days of Solidarity was our attempt to share our experience with others and, in turn, engage with their history in order to (re)claim our common humanity.

The Gardasil scandal continues: Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, POTS and the dangers of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

"The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless...I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers. Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune and decision-makers at all levels are aware of it! Cases of Guillain-Barr syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine." - Dr Bernard Dalbergue (former Merck employee) Merck acknowledges that in their Gardasil clinical trials, subjects have been known to be afflicted with neurological disorders that include "Guillain-Barr syndrome (GBS), transverse myelitis, motor neuron disease... autoimmune disorders...and death." - From Merck's product information sheet Unsolicited post-marketing reports from patients included these adverse neurological effects: acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, dizziness, Guillain-Barr syndrome, headache, syncope sometimes accompanied by tonic-clonic movements (ie seizures)." - from Merck's product insert for the 9-valent Gardasil product marketed in New Zealand

Photographer Explores Concept of Vanity By Placing Mirrors in Isolated Scenes of Nature "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Salt Vanity Series Landscape Mirrors Murray Fredericks Photography Art

In his striking series titled Vanity, self-taught photographer Murray Fredericks places a mirror in otherwise undisturbed scenes of nature. As a conceptual twist on traditional landscape photography, the series plays with reflections to offer unexpected and unexplored perspectives.

In Vanity, Fredericks repeatedly introduces a simple, square mirror to the barren, nearly dried up terrain of Australia's Lake Eyre. The images don't offer traditionally idyllic natural settings. The press release even states: It is possibly the most empty landscape imaginable. However, Fredericks saw an artistic opportunity in the lonely salt lake.

To capture each photograph, Fredericks positioned the mirror off-center and at an angle. This allowed it to capture sections of the sky that would be otherwise off-camera. Contrasting cloud patterns, juxtaposing pops of color, and skewed horizons emerge as a result of these experimental reflections. Each effect enables an image to present itself out of nothing,

In addition to facilitating both a fascinating composition and an inventive study of perspective, the presence of the mirror speaks to a deeper truth. To Fredericks, it representsand attempts to discouragenarcissism and humanity's innate fixation on the self.

The mirror can be seen as emblematic of our obsession with ourselves, individually, and collectively, Fredericks explains. 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, color and space.

Vanity, a continuation of Frederick's earlier series, Salt, is on view at London's Hamiltons Gallery until June 14th.

10.8 GHS iBelink DM11G Dash X11 ASIC Miner "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It seems that there is a new significantly more powerful X11 ASIC miner being prepared to be unleashed, a device offering 10.8 GHS X11 mining hashrate for Dash or other crypto currencies using the same algorithm. The iBelink DM11G is apparently the successor of the iBeLink DM384M X11 ASIC Miner that we have tested last year. There is still not much information regarding the new device, although there is a group buy apparently being arranged on Bitcointalk for $6750 USD with minimum order of 1 unit as well as a Russian company Bitbaza taking pre-orders for the device at $7500 USD with a minimum order of 10 units.

The new 10.8 GHS iBelink DM11G miner does seem a lot like the first generation from last year and we cannot confirm its existence yet, though there are some photos and a video of the device in action apparently. We had some doubts when we got some information about the iBeLink DM384M last time, but then again when we have purchased one unit it turned out real and delivered what was promised. So threat this information with caution for the moment, but also be aware that this product might be hitting the market in a couple of months (3 months for shipments to start). Do note that also getting in early with a so powerful hardware can make it easy and fast to get ROI on the investment, but if the manufacturer of the device manages to put out a lot of units the profitability can also quickly diminish in a matter of a month or two. Other competitors in the X11 market might also soon release updated products to match the hashrate of this device as well, especially with the 3 month shipping time for the iBelink.

Specifications of iBelink DM11G:
Hash Rate: 10.8GH/s 5%
Power Consumption: 730 W (at the wall,...

Civil War Revisionism Still Shames America "IndyWatch Feed Education"

By Manisha Sinha

If nothing else, President Trump and the Republicans are making Civil War revisionism great again. A couple of weeks ago, North Carolina GOP state Rep. Larry Pittman argued that Abraham Lincoln was the same sort (of) tyrant as Adolf Hitler, and was personally responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Americans in an unnecessary and unconstitutional war.

This line of reasoning, which posits that the Civil War was a needless and illegal conflict, goes back to Alexander Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy. Writing in the aftermath of the war, Stephens, who had proclaimed that the Confederacys cornerstone rests upon the great truth that the Negro is not the equal to the white man; that slavery, subordination to the superior race, is his natural and moral condition, indulged in a bit of historical revisionism himself.

In his two-volume tome A Constitutional View of the Late War Between the States, first published in 1868, Stephens ignored the declarations of secession issued by Southern states that left the Union, which clearly stated that the defense of slavery was the main cause for secession, and contended that the South fought to uphold states rights and the U.S. Constitution.

Stephens book is the bible of neo-Confederates, who since then have been seeking to rehabilitate the Souths Lost Cause by claiming that opposition to the tariff, states rights, local governance, or, more nebulously, Southern heritage defined the conflict.

A step-by-step guide to making pure-CSS tooltips "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I recently worked through a short tutorial about creating simple tooltips using pure CSS (and no additional HTML element or JavaScript). I later used this technique in my own project, and figured out some tricks to improve upon it.

This article is a step-by-step tutorial that will help you understand these CSS tricks so you can make pure-CSS tooltips, too.

By the end of this post, youll know how to add a tooltip to any element by adding a simple attribute.

The problem

I needed to create a custom tooltip for my project.

I started off by Googling CSS Tooltip Generator. I found quite a few generators. Their approach was to add a span with an absolute position inside the element you want a tooltip for.

But I already had an otherwise-complete project. I didnt want to go back through and add all these span elements throughout my project. This would take time and will complicate my HTML. There had to be a better way.

At last, I found an amazing tutorial on YouTube about tooltips. The smart trick it used was to create a tooltip using the :: before and :: after CSS selectors. You can watch the video here.

This trick is was smart and clean, but it wasnt generic enough.

Improving upon the solution

In this part, Ill make this trick more generic and well discover more about some CSS properties. Heres what we ultimately want to be able to do:

Not only that, but we want to be able to specify the tooltip position easily:

Firstas mentioned in the videowell add a before and an after pseudo element to the button.

::after and ::before are pseudo-elements, which allow you to insert content onto a page from CSS before or after the content of the element. They work like this:

div::after {
content: after;
div::before {
content: before;

The result looks something like this:



Lets walk through this step-by-step

Step 1: well add a tooltip attribute like this:


We need ::after and ::before pseudo-elements. These will be a simple rectangle with the content of the tooltip. We create a si...
