Stevie Ray Vaughan Plays the Acoustic Guitar in Rare Footage, Letting Us See His Guitar Virtuosity in Its Purest Form "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Ask accomplished blues and southern rock guitarists who they listen to and youll hear a number of names come up: Duane Allman, Albert King, Buddy Guy... the list of guitarists guitarists could go on and on. One name youll hear from nearly everyone: Stevie Ray Vaughan, the king of Texas blues, before whom even the very best players stand in awe, a guitarist whose legend has only grown in stature since the music world lost him in a tragic, fatal helicopter crash in 1990.

The most iconic guitarists get associated with their instruments of choice, and Vaughan is no exception. The Flying V defines the look and sound of Albert King; the custom black Gibson 335 (Lucille) that of B.B. King. And when we think of Vaughan, we may immediately think of Number One, the beat up Fender Stratocaster he loved so much he called it the first wife. One of a number of Strats Vaughan played throughout his too-brief career, Number One has become a centerpiece at the Texas State History Museum, and for very good reason.




Almost no guitarist before or since has ripped such raw emotion and searing power from an instrument, with the exception perhaps of Vaughans hero, Jimi Hendrix. Like Hendrix, Vaughan is known entirely as an electric guitarist, his tone so legendary it has inspired a cult following all its own. But give SRV, as his fans call him, an acoustic guitar and youll see right away why the most the distinctive feature of that mythic...

Brighter Days Are Coming by Sepe in Russia "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Sepe recently completed a beautiful wall in Saint-Petersburg, Russia in collaboration with Urban Nation Berlin, Goethe Institute and Street Art Museum. The theme was the 100th anniversary of October Revolution in Russia.

Sepes painting is a pastiche of a painting by russian artist Ilja Riepin titled Kurskaya Korennaya ilustrating the Eastern procession in the district of Kursk. In his artwork the holy insygnia are replaced by the huge statue of golden idol child carring a Kaloshnikov rifle. It symbolizes revolution as a birth of an idea child thats expected to grow up strong and healthy, bringing its parents happyness and reasons for pride. Instead of this it grows up for an unpredictable tyran and soon terrorises his own parents.
The rescuer turns into the torturer. Peacemaker turns into aggressor. Planned rationalization and brighter days brings violence and oppression instead.

The artwork also strongly refers to current political situation in this region. Bold head is not an accident

How to Retouch Environments Using Photoshop "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Retouching isnt just for portrait photography it can make a huge difference when you want to clean up distractions from an image. This video from Phlearn will teach you in 30 minutes how to utilise various Photoshop tools to remove objects and blemishes from your environmental photos.

In the video, Aaron Nace demonstrates how to use the Brush Tool, Spot Healing Brush, Clone Stamp, and Pen Tool for retouching. The example is an indoor shot of an office, which you can download yourself (after creating an account with Phlearn) to work on in parallel with the video.

The tutorial really shows the power of even the most basic tools in Photoshop like the Brush Tool, which is used to paint over and flawlessly remove a wall heater in the image. It also provides a good lesson in cloning objects from an image and warping them in-place to replace unwanted elements.

Jim Stone The answer to why Seth Rich was killed, and why he gave to Wikileaks is now out "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Jim Stone 5-29-17 The answer to why Seth Rich was killed, and why he gave to Wikileaks is now out

This explains a lot of things about the election, both the DNC primary, and in the Presidential election. Though Trump won the required number of electoral votes, I was very surprised that he fell short of HRC in the popular vote. Somehow I sensed that many votes were somehow confiscated from him. Jim Stone explains how this likely happened.

As David Wilcock pointed out in the prior post, The Seth Rich story is very big, and could be the critical element that breaks this all wide open as I discussed in my Monday night talk at CID [CITD].

Found this article via this BF article comment from intruth.

Seth Rich was responsible for an internet application that helped voters find their polling stations. He discovered that Hillary had set up bogus polling places that were not on the official record. Hillary then had DNC staffers merge the results from both sets of polling places, keeping the actual number of voters officially recorded at the legitimate polling station the same while the actual ballots that went to Bernie and represented those numbers were swapped out for her.

[Claudia Kash, the girlfriend of Seth Rich] There were two sets of polling places this primary season one set for most of the voters, who went on state web sites to find their polling locations, and a second set for Hillary Clinton supporters who looked on Hillary clintons website to find their polling location.

While most voters look up their location on their...

Good Reads (& Re-Reads) To Enjoy Any Time of Year "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

This time of year, summer reading recommendations flower across the Internet like honeysuckle vines. If I catch a whiff of that sweet, intoxicating smell in real life, I know that when I go back to a screen, Ill be greeted with book lists from every corner of the web. This is mine.

Truth be told, summer ends up being way busier than the rest of the year for me. My daughter is out of school, friends and family are reaching milestones that call for celebrations, and the outdoors keep screaming my name. Lounging by the pool with a fruity drink and a book does not happen here.

With this in mind, I thought Id create a no-pressure reading list for anyone who wants to make some time to delve into an alternate universe and come out thinking, smiling or both. From the Young Adult debut novel from a Mississippian to a non-fiction account of one of the most mysterious cases of self-identity in my lifetime, Im ready to read these books in bed with a flashlight if I have to.

Migrants win right to stay in UK through 'proxy weddings' "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Exposed: Migrants win the right to stay in the UK with wedding they don't even turn up for! Ruling after Ghanaian's marriage 3,000 miles away - to a German

  • Ghanaian man has fought a landmark four-year legal battle to live in Britain
  • He had a 'proxy wedding' 3,000 miles away which he did not even attend
  • Neither Albert Awuku, 43, or his German bride needed to be present
  • Instead, they are thought to have been represented by their families in accordance with Ghana's 'customary law on marriages

Then-home secretary Theresa May refused his application for residency because she was not satisfied Mr Awukus claimed marriage was registered in accordance with Ghanaian law.

Her decision was later overturned by a judge at a first-tier immigration tribunal who was happy with the documents provided by the couple and satisfied the wedding was properly executed.

But Mrs May appealed to a higher tribunal and won. However, Mr Awuku then went to the Appeal Court to challenge that ruling, claiming that his human right to a family life with his wife who is of Ghanaian descent had been breached.

Now after a four-year battle, Mr Awuku represented by human rights barrister Zane Malik and a London-based solicitor specialising in proxy marriages has scored a major victory at the Appeal Court which has paved the way for him to be granted residency in the UK.

President Trump is keeping another promise by pulling the US out of the Paris Agreement "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Scoop: Trump is pulling U.S. out of Paris climate deal

Pablo Martinez Monsivais / AP

President Trump has made his decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the decision. Details on how the withdrawal will be executed are being worked out by a small team including EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt. They're deciding on whether to initiate a full, formal withdrawal which could take 3 years or exit the underlying United Nations climate change treaty, which would be faster but more extreme.

EXCLUSIVE Carter Page: Russia Investigation Will Unearth Obama Admins Falsified FISA Warrants Against Me "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Carter Page, the American oil industry consultant who was tangentially and briefly associated with Donald Trumps presidential campaign, is calling out U.S. officials who may have been behind highly damaging leaks about him to the news media, alleging the leakers committed felonies.

In a letter to the House Select Committee on Intelligence and a follow-up email interview with Breitbart News, Page contended that the leaks come with a silver lining he charges that the episode will expose the Obama administrations use of false evidence to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) warrant to monitor his personal communications.

In the exchange with this reporter, Page maintained that when the falsified FISA warrants against me are eventually revealed, the extent of illegal false evidence will show that there was never any probable cause but rather vindictive personal attacks used to justify the Clinton-Obama-Comey regimes domestic political intelligence operation.

On April 11, the Washington Post cited law enforcement and other U.S. officials stating that, as part of its investigation into alleged Russian collusion, the FBI obtained a secret FISA court order last summer to monitor Pages communications.

The Post acknowledged it was reporting on leaked information, highlighting that the officials spoke about the court order on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss details of a counterintelligence probe.

The Post further reported on the court order:

The FBI and the Justice Department obtained the warrant targeting Carter Pages communications after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia, according to the officials.

The newspaper allowed that Page had not been accused of any crimes. It reported that the FISA court renewed the 90-day warrant on Page more than once, according to the officials.

The U.S. government has not responded to a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) seeking information on why Page was surveilled.

Page himself has appealed for public disclosure of the justification for what he refers to as the illegitimate FISA warrant.

Kathy Griffin Slammed for Photo Shoot Showing Decapitated Donald Trump "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Emmy- and Grammy-award winning comedian Kathy Griffin and photographer Tyler Shields are in hot water this week due to a photo shoot showing Griffin holding a bloodied Donald Trump mask thats made to look like the decapitated head of the president. The photo has sparked outrage and even a public response from Trump himself.

Warning: This post contains the graphic photo at the center of the controversy.

Shields is a well-known celebrity portrait photographer known for controversial and shocking photos, and the gruesome photo was first published yesterday by the celebrity news site TMZ.

During the photo shoot, Kathy joked that she and Tyler would need to move to Mexico once the pics got released, for fear theyd be thrown in prison, TMZ writes. Trumps critics have skewered him for inciting violence with his speech. Did Kathy do the same?

How to Accurately Color Match in Photoshop "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Adjusting colors of specific elements in a photograph can be used to bring harmony to an image or to add creative flair. Heres a 5-minute video that shows how to match colors in Photoshop.

Russell Browns example photograph features a red chair sitting in front of a water scene, wearing orange flippers. This, naturally, is the perfect scene to alter  the orange flippers must be color matched to the red chair.

Rather than using color balance, hue/saturation or levels, Brown uses grayscale values in order to match the colors.

Brown has done some leg work to set the image up for alteration by moving the flippers to their own layer. Next, he takes a small selection of the color that he wants to alter in this case, the orange of the flippers.

By duplicating this swatch and placing it on top of the fabric of the chair, Brown is able to use it as a tone reference. He uses the magic wand tool to select all of the orange of the flippers. Switching to the red channel, he brings up the Levels panel and adjusts the midtones until the swatch matches the chairs fabric. He repeats the process for the green and blue channels.

Switching back to the RGB channel, the result is red flippers, perfectly matched to the tone of the chair.

The beauty of this technique is in its simplicity and in its accuracy. As Brown says, its something to store away in the back pocket for that one time you need to color match some flippers to a chair.

The video at the top explains this technique in full. Brown, a senior creative director at Adobe Systems, has plenty of other tips on his Vimeo account, found here.

Cryptos, New Financial System and managing your Wealth Pools: stepping into Uncharted Territory "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

No, the Financial Reset hasnt happened yet.

The anxiety in the world of non-consensual reality is gaining pace with the uptick in incoming energies from space.

A gigantic load of poorly discerned information has been unleashed upon the already or newly awakened beings (and with already overloaded brains) in the last few years, in the direction of that pivotal moment in time where all that accumulated energy would blow off the lid and let the genie out of the bottle.

I never sought to be in line with any herd mentality, even if the herd is alternative or non-mainstream or non-consensual reality biased (perhaps this is rooted in some deep twisted pleasure of just being contrarian!).

Before I jump into the financial intel I would like to make some remarks about intel coming from the social media outlets and alternative media sites, whatever they may be, including this site where I publish this specific article.

Social media was designed to screw with your brain, specifically your emotions (blue = mind control anyone?).

Alternative media is only now starting to grow weary of the importance of holistic thinking, aka discernment.

An explosive and unstable mix of unfiltered information, lack of dot connections, psychic interferences and cultural bias is used in a very convenient mind control apparatus called social media.

Im not advising you to dump your Facebook profile just yet, simply because, despite all of its flaws, a critical mass of users still manages to flip the table and make it somehow useful in spreading the truth, each ones truth.

Having this in mind we have to come to grips with the idea that the internet being heavily polluted like it is, works like a reality enhancer, were each ones reality bubble gets disproportionately and pathologically large, destroyed or fragmented.

The real reality begins at home, in our communities, in our countries, from where many are eager to scape sometimes, creating augmented belief systems that connect them to realities they wish to exist.

The point here is that, if you want to travel the pat...

I interviewed Evan You, the creator of vuejs.org which is a popular progressive JavaScript framework. Evan works on Vue full time with the funding from the Patreon campaign. Previously, he worked at Google and Meteor.

This article was originally posted on Between the Wires, an interview series featuring those who are building developer products.

Tell us a little bit about your childhood and where you grew up.

Okay, so I was born in China, my hometown is called Wuxi. Its a medium-sized city, which is right next to Shanghai. Actually, I went to Shanghai for high school for three years and commuted back and forth. After high school I went to the US for college. I guess I got early access to computers, but I didnt really get into programming too much. I was more interested in games, and I did play a lot with Flash when I was in high school, because I really enjoyed making those interactive storytelling experiences.

Evan with his first computer, 1996

What was your first programming experience?

I was attracted to JavaScript because of the ability to just build something and share it instantly with the world. You put it on the web, and you get a URL, you can send it to anyone with a browser. That was the part that just attracted me to the web and to JavaScript.

When I went to college in the US, honestly I didnt know what I wanted to do and I was majoring in studio art and art history. When I was about to graduate, I realized it was pretty hard to find a job doing studio art and art history.

I figured maybe I could go to a masters program that fit my interests better and developed more skills. I went to Parsons and studied the Master of Fine Arts for Design and Technology. It was a really cool program because everyone was half designer and half developer. They taught you things like openFrameworks, processing, algorithmic animations, and you also had to design apps and interfaces.

Sexism in ratings of intelligence across the life cycle "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The average man thinks hes smarter than the average woman. And women generally agree.

It starts early. At the age of five, most girls and boys think that their own sex is the smartest, a finding consistent with the idea that people tend to think more highly of people like themselves. Around age six, though, right when gender stereotypes tend to take hold among children, girls start reporting that they think boys are smarter, while boys continue to favor themselves and their male peers.

They may have learned this from their parents. Both mothers and fathers tend to think that their sons are smarter than their daughters. Theyre more likely to ask Google if their son is a genius (though also whether theyre stupid). Regarding their daughters, theyre more likely to inquire about attractiveness.

Once in college, the trend continues. Male students overestimate the extent to which their males peers have mastered biology, for example, and underestimate their female peers mastery, even when grades and outspokenness were accounted for.  To put a number on it, male students with a 3.00 G.P.A. were evaluated as equally smart as female students with a 3.75 G.P.A.

When young scholars go professional, the bias persists. More so than women, men go into and succeed in fields that are believed to require raw, innate brilliance, while women...

Has drug-driven medicine become a form of human sacrifice? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship.   To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science.  All such laws are un-American and despotic. ~ Attributed to Dr. Benjamin Rush,

Nikon has just unveiled 3 new wide-angle lenses: the AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED, AF-P DX NIKKOR 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR, and AF-S Fisheye NIKKOR 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED. The 10-20mm is a budget-friendly wide-angle zoom for DX-format cameras, and the 8-15mm is Nikons first ever fisheye zoom lens.

AF-S NIKKOR 28mm f/1.4E ED

The new Nikkor 28mm f/1.4 is a new fast wide-angle prime lens thats designed to give advanced photographers an ultimate option in wide angle image quality. Its a Gold Ring Series lens that indicates that its one of Nikons premium lenses.

With a fast f/1.4 maximum aperture and nine blade rounded diaphragm, it affords a shallow depth of field with gorgeous bokeh and stellar low light performance, making it a great choice for shooting low light landscapes, interiors and events, Nikon says.

Features and specs of the lens include a lightweight magnesium alloy body, dust and water drop resistant sealing, fluorine coating that resists dirt and smudges, an optical design of 14 elements in 11 groups, and a Nano Crystal coat that reduces ghosting and flare.

Here are some official sample photos captured using the new 28mm:

Sense by Elbi Elem in Valencia, Spain "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Elbi Elem just sent us a series of images from his latest abstract artwork that was just completed somewhere on the streets of Valencia in Spain.

With the intervention of Sense for the Mes Que Murs Street Art Festival that took place in the Port of Sagunto in Valencia, the artist wanted once again to integrate the architecture and urban forms around the wall within his work.

Taking into account the colors of the adjacent buildings and using the anamorphic perspective, the abstract composition is able to form part of the environment in turn and leave outside the wall when observing it from a certain point of the square, involving also the neighbours or the one who observes it, altering their perception.

Wooden Fidget Spinner "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

By Jamison Rantz

Are you a parent? Do you need a way to occupy your kids? Join the club. But really, fidget spinners are all the craze lately and as long as you can keep your kid from popping the bearing out and swallowing it, youll find it to be a pretty harmless toy, and another plus is that it never runs out of batteries.

That being said, fidget spinners are pretty cheap and you can find a wide variety of them on Amazon for under $15. However, I wanted to make one out of wood because I thought it would have more meaning and be a cool little project to do with my son.

Fractal: A Magnificent Supercell Thunderstorm Timelapse by Chad Cowan "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

For the last decade, Kansas-based photographer Chad Cowan has driven almost 100,000 miles across the United States chasing powerful supercell thunderstorms and recording them in high definition. The endeavor began as a personal project to capture a few storms as they developed but quickly grew into a full-blown obsession. Cowan has recorded hundreds of storms and condensed the highlights into this short film titled Fractal with editing help from Kevin X Barth. He shares about the nature of thunderstorms:

The ingredient based explanation for supercell thunderstorms cites moisture, wind shear, instability and lift as the reasons for their formation. I prefer to focus on the big picture. Supercell thunderstorms are a manifestation of natures attempt to correct an extreme imbalance. The ever ongoing effort to reach equilibrium, or viscosity, is what drives all of our weather, and the force with which the atmosphere tries to correct this imbalance is proportional to the gradient. In other words, the more extreme the imbalance, the more extreme the storm.

Supported and Respected and Encouraged: Wileys Birth "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

My due date was Sunday January 22nd 2017 and on Thursday January 19th I woke up with a feeling that it may be my last day at work before maternity leave. My mucus plug fell out throughout the day and I was feeling different than I had during the rest of the pregnancy, but I didnt want to get myself too excited because I knew the mucus plug could indicate birth within anywhere from hours to weeks. I got home from work and went to the gym to get a walk in and try to get the baby moving. Around 8:30 p.m. I had my first contraction. I was able to use breathing techniques to work through the pain. These contractions continued on and off until about 2:30 a.m.

On Friday January 20th I was exhausted from the contractions the night before and decided to take the day off work and spend time walking and relaxing in case the baby decided to make an early appearance. My husband Jason and I walked the mall all day and ran some errands to pass the time. I felt a few mild contractions throughout the day, but nothing compared to what I had felt the night before. I didnt have much of an appetite, so we snacked a little for dinner, watched TV, and headed to bed. Around 12:30 a.m. on Saturday January 21st I woke up to contractions. These contractions were much more intense than those I felt on Thursday. I couldnt just breathe through them, I had change positions frequently and needed Jasons support. These contractions lasted all night and all day. Around 5 p.m. the contractions had become more regular, about 5 to 6 minutes apart and around a minute long. We called the birth center, and the midwife told us to wait until my contractions were 3 minutes apart and lasted at least a minute each. She said I would feel the difference when I was moving into active labor and that this could take a long time, possibly until the next morning. My motherly instinct told me that it would happen faster.

Between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. my contractions changed. I could no longer work through them by simply using breathing techniques and changing positions. I had to make loud, intense sounds from my gut. Jason was amazing. He played calming music, sprayed essential oils, rubbed my back, physically held me up, and encouraged me. I felt an extreme calm, as if I was inside myself. At some point during this time Jason called the birth center again. This time they told him to come in so they could check to see how I was progressing. He packed the car and we headed to the birth center. On the way there I had 5 contractions, and it was only a 15-minute drive.

We arrived and were met b...

18 Wonderful Wicker Chairs "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Wicker Chairs on Design*Sponge

One of the reasons that wicker chairs are so special is that they were made by someone. No machine can completely twist, braid or bend these pieces into existence without the touch of a human hand. Wicker is the term that refers to the process of weaving materials like rattan, bamboo, and seagrass to form a beautiful and functional piece of dcor. These twigs, leaves, reeds and vines work together to build strength and structure through intricate, geometric patterns that are as functional as they are beautiful.

Wicker chairs are one of those furniture pieces that have made comeback after comeback. They give a gentle nod towards nature and fit perfectly in spaces that are layered with patterned textiles or plant life. Wicker can be painted or rely on its own natural color to add character. Today, wicker chairs are as easy to find in antique stores as they are brand new. Below are 18 homes from the archives that use fiber woven chairs to enhance texture and create spaces that are nostalgic and contemporary all at once. Bethany

Image Above: This musical moment was created by Megan Pettipoole for the Whealys home in Omaha, NE. The wicker chair at the piano echoes the wicker burst wallhanging above that brings in a soft, natural feeling to the bohemian-inspired space.

Halide is a New iOS Camera App Made by an Ex-Apple and Ex-Twitter Duo "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Halide is a new premium camera for your phone that provides advanced control over camera settings along with a gesture-based interface that aims to become muscle memory, like the dials of a camera.

The apps creators ex-Apple designer Sebastiaan de With and ex-Twitter engineer Ben Sandofsky aim to best Apples own app with a focus on advanced users, whereas the inbuilt Camera app acts as more of a point and shoot option. While Apples recent how-to guides give some way to improve the photography of the average user, Halide goes beyond the possibilities of Apples own app by offering professional tools such as focus peaking, a detailed histogram, adaptive level grid, and RAW support.

Halide begins in a smart automatic mode, but with a tap can be switched to full manual mode, giving the user control over ISO, shutter speed, white balance, and focus.

The duo put huge effort in to the design of the application, even commissioning a custom typeface for the user interface, developed by Jelmar Geertsma and called Halide Router. The app uses both visual and haptic feedback, giving it a tactile quality that is unmatched in the many other camera apps available in 2017. Speaking about the work put in to the apps design, Sebastiaan explained:

Police Interrogation Safewords "IndyWatch Feed Satire"


Almost everybody endured police interrogations at some point during the 1970s. They were so frequent that most families had a packed bag by the front door (people were expected to bring a spare change of underwear and their own first-aid supplies).

If by chance all members of a family were summoned together, they might make a day of it, have a picnic in the prison facility's Garden of Incorruptibility and watch the interrogation of their loved ones on big monitors. Laugh tracks were included to minimise distress.

While the security services were openly proud of their slogans such as "we promise to raise a glass to those who don't confess", if a detainee did suffer irreversible psychological or physical damage as a result of their interrogation, the family was awarded a 5 book token and a potted cactus as compensation.

Makeup Artist Paints Her Pucker to Turn Her Lips into Mesmerizing Works of Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Art of Lips

Makeup has always been one of the best ways for people to outwardly express themselvesmore so now than ever, thanks to contemporary beauty trends. With dazzling, unconventional colors en vogue, its no surprise that makeup addicts are using them to transform parts of their bodies into spectacular works of living art. For years, Andrea Reed, aka Girl Grey Beauty, has created lip art that blows us away with its color, detail, and creativity.

Reeds makeup art runs the gamut of subjects, and she loves to experiment with new imagery and techniques. Previously, shes taken inspiration from real works of art like Katsushika Hokusai's Great Wave Off Kanagawa, but she hasnt stopped there. Some of her latest applications include an homage to Gustav Klimt and the old logo for Instagram (the platform she now has over 338K followers on).

Reed also finds unusual ways to collaborate with other makeup artists. Last year, she and Laura Jenkinson (another My Modern Met favorite) collaborated on a makeup project inspired by the 1951 Disney film Alice In Wonderland. For it, Reed interpreted the line Do you suppose she's a wildflower? and painted flowers all over her lips, while Jenkinson adorned her chin to resemble the kooky Mad Hatter.

Andrea Reed uses colorful beauty products to turn her mouth into mesmerizing lip art.

Food Rules For Travelers Quick Guide to Stay Healthy While Traveling "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Health Tips Now

Traveling can be educational, exciting, energizing, and exhausting and the food you enjoy while traveling can be memorable and delicious. On one hand, it is exciting for the eyes but it isnt always for the mouth. Only one wrong bite can spoil your trip even if you dont actually get sick. So, if youre not paying attention to food rules for safety while traveling, culinary excursions can be a danger to your health.

When it comes to food safety the golden rule, among food rules for travelers, is proper hand washing. Wash your hands with water and soap after you use the bathroom and before you eat. Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer when water and soap arent available.

Although most of the fun is enjoying the local food, keeping a few consistencies will balance out some food-ventures gone wrong and keep you comfortable.

    Splash and Burn is a self funded project initiated by the Lithuanian artist who has been actively researching the issue, visiting and scouting locations and connecting with experts and specialists in the field throughout the last two years. Starting in February, Ernest and his artists friend from around the world visited Sumatra on couple of occasions, creating a series of diverse works that aims to raise awareness about unregulated farming practices of palm oil in Indonesia. The campaign is collaborating with a number of local and international NGOs, including London based charity Orangutans-SOS.org and Indonesian based Orangutan Information Centre. Ranging from small interventions and installations by Isaac Cordal, or larger ones by Mark Jenkins, mural pieces by Ernest Zacharevic, Gabriel Pitcher, Bibi or Axel Void, to recognizable stencil works by Strk or impressive sculptural installation by Pixel Pancho, Splash and Burn surely succeeded in getting the attention and are now planning on continuing their efforts and support the works of local NGOs.

    How I Make Quick and Easy Newspaper Bricks For Burning In My Fire "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

     

    Forget everything youve ever read about shredding and soaking newspaper for days to make paper logs. Theres a much faster and easier way to recycle your newspaper and create effective long-burning paper bricks.

    Heres how I make compressed paper bricks, quickly and easily, to use in my wood-burning stove.

    Compressed Paper Bricks / Logs

    I make bricks from newspaper to use as fuel in my wood-burning stove. Because I live off the grid, I cannot flick the switch on an electric heater to keep warm while my paper bricks dry so I need the process to be quick and easy. Fire keeps my family warm during winter.

    Living off the grid without electricity, I rely heavily on solar power during summer and I need my wood-burning stove to operate constantly during the colder months.

    We burn split logs and fallen branches from the many trees near our home, but I also use recycled newspaper compressed into bricks to supplement the wood. Compressed paper logs burn hot which is useful if weve been out or away long enough for the fire to die down, plus they make extremely effective fire-starters.

    Their heat is intense which means there is no delay in generating warmth, plus the flame helps even large logs ignite. If theres no dry wood on hand, paper logs can be encouraged to burn a long time. Theres no need to fill the chamber of the fire with paper logs; you can burn them one at a time and still receive warmth.

    So what can you do to make your own paper bricks ready to use within days instead of waiting for weeks as recommended?

    Freshly Made Newspaper Brick

    Using old newspapers to create long-burning fuel for your fire is a great idea. But how much time and effort are you prepared to dedicate to creating each paper brick? I decided the task had to be quick and easy.

Echosim would be the ideal description of a caretaker personality, but one who does so at the cost of their own self-worth.

    Tom Fitton on the Firing of Jim Comey, 1651 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    - Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level cyber protection. https://www.jeevycomputers.com Tom Fitton / Judicial Watch www.JudicialWatch.org Good evening, Im still reporting on Tom Fitton on the Firing of Jim Comey, 1651 Synopsis: One of the most dangerous lessons learned in the past year has been how vulnerable the rule of law is to a deliberate attack on it. The Clinton cabal realized that it could get away with anything as long as they tried to get away with everything all at once. Suddenly the rule of law crumbles because it is overwhelmed by the complete lawlessness of a well-connected politician who uses the ultimate political weapon of picking off their most dangerous detractors one by one. Ive said it before, and Ill say it again, this town has had a dark cloud of fear of the Clinton crime syndicate since the murder no it was not a suicide of Vince Foster. This has now gone far beyond one persons misdeeds. Its an all-out assault on the very basis of American freedom the rule of law in a Constitutional republic by those who seek to create a dictatorship with them at the top of the pile. This is not an exaggeration. This is an existential test the likes of which this nation has not faced since the American Civil War. I believe Tom Fitton knows all this -- and more -- and he comes close to saying it without going off the deep end as I am wont to do. But you can see it, brewing just under the concern on his face. He is doing what he does best in the spot he is in, just as we are doing our best in our spot. Thats all a good God can expect from us mortals.

Good morning, Im still reporting on The Missing OAN Report on Seth Rich, 1650 Synopsis: But first of all a word about Memorial Day my favorite holiday because the weather is always nice.

My dad and Beths dad flew in B-17s with the 8th Air Force over Germany, and then paid for its rebuilding. Thats all Ive got to say on that. God bless you, Dad, and God bless every veteran who has defended the freedoms that many of us take for granted and today are under direct assault from a new kind of enemy an enemy within. So, may God bless all of you who have enlisted in this battle over the lack of a proper investigation into the death of another brave warrior for American freedom, Seth Rich. ---- Some kind person sent me this out of the blue this morning. Its a recording off their TV set that I believe this is the missing OAN report on Seth Rich which was pulled from their website.

    Is Bitcoin Standing In For Gold? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    Is Bitcoin Standing In For Gold?

    Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler

    In a series of articles posted on www.paulcraigroberts.org, we have proven to our satisfaction that the prices of gold and silver are manipulated by the bullion banks acting as agents for the Federal Reserve.

    The bullion prices are manipulated down in order to protect the value of the US dollar from the extraordinary increase in supply resulting from the Federal Reserves quantitative easing (QE) and low interest rate policies.

    The Federal Reserve is able to protect the dollars exchange value vis-a-via the other reserve currenciesyen, euro, and UK poundby having those central banks also create money in profusion with QE policies of their own.

    The impact of fiat money creation on bullion, however, must be controlled by price suppression. It is possible to suppress the prices of gold and silver, because bullion prices are established not in physical markets but in futures markets in which short-selling does not have to be covered and in which contracts are settled in cash, not in bullion.

    Since gold and silver shorts can be naked, future contracts in gold and silver can be printed in profusion, just as the Federal Reserve prints fiat currency in profusion, and dumped into the futures market. In other words, as the bullion futures market is a paper market, it is possible to create enormous quantities of paper gold that can suddenly be dumped in order to drive down prices. Everytime gold starts to move up, enormous quantities of future contracts are suddenly dumped, and the gold price is driven down. The same for silver.

    Rigging the bullion price prevents gold and silver from transmitting to the currency market the devaluation of the dollar that the Federal Reserves money creation is causing. It is the ability to rig the bullion price that protects the dollars value from being destroyed by the Federal Reserves printing press.

    Recently, the price of a Bitcoin has skyrocketed, rising in a few weeks from $1,000 to $2,200. Two explanations suggest themselves. One is that the Federal Reserve has decided to rid itself of a competing currency and is driving up the price with purchases while accumulating a large position, which then will be suddenly dumped in order to crash the market and scare away potential users from Bitcoins. Remember, the Fed can create all the money it wishes and, thereby, doesnt have to worry about losses.

    Another explanation is that people concerned about the fiat currencies but frustrated in their attempts to take refuge in bullion have recognized that the supply of Bitcoin is fixed and Bitcoin futures must be covered. It is strictly impossible for any central bank to increase the supply of Bitcoins. Thus Bitcoin is standing in for the suppress...

    The Gestapo Points to Guernica and Asks Picasso, Did You Do This?; Picasso Replies No, You Did! "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    History remembers Pablo Picasso first as an innovative painter, and second as an uninhibited personality. The latter especially generated many an anecdote in his long life, some surely apocryphal but most probably true. A short Guardian editorial on one of his most famous canvases begins with the story of when, "in occupied Paris, a Gestapo officer who had barged his way into Picassos apartment pointed at a photo of the mural, Guernica, asking: 'Did you do that?' 'No,' Picasso replied, 'you did', his wit fizzing with the anger that animates the piece" a piece that took no small amount of boldness to paint in the first place.

    Guernica, much more of a visceral experience than the average painting, resists straightforward description, but the article offers one: "In black and white, the piece has the urgency of a newspaper photo. Flailing bulls and horses show that the visceral horrors of war are not just an affront to human civilisation, but to life."




    Painted in June 1937 at Picasso's home in Paris, in response to the bombing by Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy of the Basque village from which the work would take its name, Guernica raised awareness of (as well as relief funds for) the Spanish Civil War when it debuted at the 1937 World's Fair in Paris and subsequently toured the world itself.

    Two Poems by Ana Martins Marques "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Illustration by Elisa Wouk Almino for This House by Ana Martins Marques (Scrambler Books)

     

    The Sea

     

    She said
    the sea
    said
    sometimes improbable things come
    not merely plastic bags cardboard wood
    empty bottles condoms beer cans
    also umbrellas shoes fans
    and a sofa
    she said
    its possible to look
    for a long time
    it is here I come
    to clear my eyes
    she said
    those who were born far from
    the sea
    those who never saw
    the sea
    what will they make
    of the limitless?
    what will they make
    of leaving?
    will they think of taking a long road
    and not looking back?
    think of airport
    highways
    border controls?
    when they say
    I want to kill myself
    will they think of blades
    guns
    poison?
    for I only think
    of the sea

     

     

    One day

     

    We didnt sleep;
    we believed the night
    could be replaced by coffee
    and it was

    our round heads
    under a round moon

    we were saved by the small restaurant open until so
    [late]
    keeping in its heart bright red
    soup

    you carried in your pockets
    coins from three countries

    dawn came like the cover
    of a notebook

    we talked as though writing subtitles
    for photographs

    we wanted so much
    so little

    we took the bus
    at the last minute

    traveled
    side by side
    like a bilingual
    edition

    Cherry Orchard Family Photos "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

In the meantime, I thought I'd share these photos from our cherry orchard family session with Lana Jenae Photography. I just loooove them. Ian was not having it for the majority of this session, but she still managed to capture some beautiful family photos that I will cherish.

    I was worried that I wouldn't like the photos, since Ian didn't flash his toothy grin very much all night. But they still turned out so cute, right?? I can never get enough of his striking blue eyes, his hair that's starting to curl, his rosebud lips, and his perfectly smooth baby skin. I'm so happy to have these photos that capture this moment in time.

    Next Story Easy Steps To Keep Your Brain Healthy & Happy "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Katleen Brown; Collective Evolution

    If you think that you are far too young to worry about keeping your brain healthy and happy, then you are wrong. It is never too early to start taking better care of your whole body in general, and if you think that you will have to invest in expensive products or treatments to keep your brain healthy, then you are wrong again. Keeping your brain healthy comprises a series of small yet efficient lifestyle changes. It is a process that requires commitment, patience, love, and support. And we are here to help you. You will not be alone at any step of the way. We are offering seven simple steps for a healthy brain, and now it is up to you to decide if you are willing to follow them and make your brain happy or not. And trust us your brain deserves this.

    Why Is It Important to Take Better Care of Your Brain?

    What was once thought to be a health problem of the elderly now seems to be occurring among more and more young people as time passes: stroke. Using data from the New Jersey Department of Health spanning from 1995 to 2014, researchers at Rutgers University discovered that the rate of stroke had increased surprisingly among young people. And what concerns us the most is the fact that stroke most often leaves difficult consequences.


    Another study talked about the consequences of stroke among young people. When a stroke occurs among young people, we are left with more and more young people stuck with difficult impairments before their most productive years.

    Now you can see why it is essential to take better care of your brain to keep it healthy and happy no matter your age. Do what you can to prevent stroke, not increase your chances of getting one.

    Fluoride debate: Johnstown Water Authority hears comments on benefits, risks of treating water "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    A clear and even divide existed among the about two dozen customers who spoke at Tuesdays public meeting concerning whether the Greater Johnstown Water Authority should stop putting fluoride into the water it supplies.

    Pro-fluoridation speakers pointed to the chemicals ability to help prevent tooth decay at a low cost.

    Opponents raised concerns about possible side effects and the practice of medicating an entire community.

    The authority held the meeting, as required by the state Department of Environmental Protection, in order to get feedback before voting on the proposal, likely in two months. The water authority is considering removing the fluoride as a savings step, since continuing the practice could cost $400,000 to $500,000 over the next decade due to a $125,000 capital improvement to the chemical feed system and ongoing expense of purchasing fluoride.

    I thought we got to hear a lot of interesting points and well-made points on either side, Michael Kerr, the authoritys resident manager, said.

    I think because of that the meeting held its intended purpose and gave us several good opinions on either side for the board of directors to consider when they make their final decision.

    At least two dentists spoke in favor of keeping fluoride in the system.

    Dr. Robert Callahan, the mayor of Westmont, called fluoridation safe and effective and warned about possible ramifications if it is removed.

    Johnstown has enough bad news without putting our health care back into the last century, Callahan said.

    Dr. Scott Little added: The truth is water that has a fluoride level thats regulated never did anything but benefit. Thats the truth of the research.

    Carol Morgan thinks fluoride in the water system has only benefited the community. Robert Morgan, Southmont Borough Council vice president, pointed out that, in his opinion, the area has more pressing issues to address, saying, I think maybe, perhaps, instead of discussing this, we should discuss our heroin problem, which is much more detrimental to our youth and to our community than fluoride.

    The cost would amount to pennies per month for each of the authoritys approximately 22,000 customers.

    I know that we live in an area where the cost of things has become so difficult, but Im hoping that the board will look at these things and realize, too, people can die of toothaches, Little said. People can die. I have seen people die.

    But, by continuing to put fluoride into the water,...

    How to Live Simply in a Complicated World "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    BY SOFO ARCHON

    simple_man

    The world we humans have created and live in is unbelievably complicated, and this is reflected in the way were living.

    Consider how most people live: Day in and day out they are fighting with one another, are endlessly busy doing things they deep down hate doing, their attention is constantly being distracted by superfluous things, and their minds are filled with an endless stream of conflicting thoughts in a few words, their hearts and souls are being sucked into the vortex we call modern living.

    Inhabiting such a complicated world, its impossible not to be influenced by it. But through our thoughts, actions and attitude we can choose to simplify our lives and be more detached from its chaotic ways. If youd like to learn to live more simply so that you can improve your well-being, but you dont know how, the following tips might prove helpful.

    Declutter your work and living space. Reducing the amount of unimportant stuff youve collected over the years can do wonders to help reduce your stress levels and keep your life simple. By living in an uncluttered environment youll be able to focus on whats truly important to you and wont be led away by constant distractions. In addition, you wont have to maintain and worry over things that you dont actually need and dont contribute in any way to your happiness.

    Limit your media time. Most people spend an enormous part of their lives watching TV or mindlessly surfing the internet. They then complain that life is short and wonder why they cant find joy in it. Although the media can be good if used carefully with measure, it can also turn into a harsh tyrant if we become addicted to it and let it enslave us in a virtual world that prevents us from living up to our fullest potential.

    Get rid of unnecessary costs. Entrapped in the web of consumerism, a lot of us choose to waste our hard-earned money buying things that we dont need and which only complicate our lives. From now on, simplify your life by not throwing your money around and instead spend it on things that actually matter. Helpful tips: ditch your credit cards and say no to taking loans to avoid getting into debt.

    Focus on what you love. When you do what you enjoy doing, life becomes simple. On the contrary, when you dislike what you do,...

    Love Transforms And Transmutes All Lower Vibrations "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Deane Thomas; In5D.com

    Love Transcends History!

    I am reminded today, of all days, a day and time in my own life, when I truly connected with pure love energy of two incredible souls. An energy I have never experienced in my life, and one that I have come to accept as part of me. We are all energy, we are all love, and there is nothing that anyone can do to destroy that purity. I am love, I am worthy and once that flame is ignited it will never extinguish, that is the power of love.

    Remembering is an amazing gift we all possess, especially when love is concerned. When one connects with those that transform our lives, in the name of unconditional love, we tend to have a permanent imprint embedded in our psyche, and our soul. Almost like a date stamp and one, no matter how much we try to avoid it, that essence keeps appearing.


    Modern man and science label this as an obsession, or unrequited love but as we know science has so many unknown answers and tends to stigmatize what it doesnt comprehend. A failing of science perhaps, but one that many in humanity can feel on a daily basis. That essence is pure love, it is an essence that is within us, and one that only a few can acknowledge and understand.

    Many run from this love essence because their ego recognizes that a transformation is about to take place. A transformation to our birthright, to our very existence on this planet. Millenia of conditioning and programming is not going to interfere with a being that truly believes in that essence which they are. Pure love will always transcend, fear, greed, and hatred as well as any lower vibration that has been implanted in our psyche.

    Opioid Conflict-of-Interest Reveals Big Pharmas Ties to Doctors "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    From CBC News: A McMaster University committee has been assigned to develop new opioid-prescribing guidelines for Canadas doctors. While the rules explicitly prohibited anyone with ties to the pharmaceutical industry from sitting on the voting committee, it was recently discovered that one of the committee members had ties to drug companies that sell opioids, revealing the prevalence of financial relationships between doctors, hospitals, and the pharmaceutical industry.

    What is Ayahuasca and Is It an Effective Treatment for Cancer? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by The Truth About Cancer

    What is ayahuasca? Its an entheogenic or psychotropic tea or spirit medicine typically made from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine often in combination with other plant(s) containing dimethyl tryptamine (DMT). The name Ayahuasca (pronounced EYE-UH-WAHS-KUH), comes from Quechua, the language of the Incan people in South America. It roughly translates as vine of the soul.

    This dark, foul tasting tea is traditionally administered by an indigenous shaman in healing ceremonies in and near the Amazon, but also now through a variety of Brazil-based churches as well as non-religious organizations. It has relatively recently become known outside South America and is being used by more and more people around the world to treat all manner of medical conditions including cancer.

    Some who have tried ayahuasca swear by its healing properties. Western scientists have begun to study it and some health professionals are including it as an integral part of their protocol to treat cancer.


    Ayahuasca & Cancer: Whats The Connection?

    One personal example of healing cancer was shared back in 1998 in the Bulletin of the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies in an article titled Ayahuasca and Cancer: One Mans Experience. In the article, Donald M. Topping, PhD, shared that after his colorectal cancer metastasized to his liver Western doctors had essentially condemned him to death, so he came to ayahuasca for a second opinion.

    In the article he gives a first-hand account of four ayahuasca ceremonies, including his inner experience. The first two experiences were with a Santo Daime group in Hawaii, and the next two were with a man who claimed to have been trained by Peruvian Ayahuasceros. Topping stated that a week after his fourth ayahuasca session, his CEA count a cancer activity indicator was completely normal.

    From ABC: The self-help and self-improvement industry are more popular and widely accepted than ever. However, the moral imperative to constantly think positive and always be responsible for ones own happiness can be harmful and oppressive.

    In a culture of mandated positivity, if we are unhappy we only have ourselves to blame.

    Peoples problems are explained with reference to the fact that they werent positive enough, Professor Brinkmann said.

    A Little Bit of OCD: The Downside of Mental Health Awareness "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    From The Guardian: People often claim to experience mental health problems only to excuse their unpleasant or hurtful behaviors. This can exacerbate prejudice toward those labeled mentally ill and increase societal scapegoating of mental illness for violence.

    In truth, exploiting mental health issues happens all around us, so its no wonder people are OK with it. From the media, citing mental illness as the cause for any violent attack where the perpetrator has inconvenient political views/is white, to drug companies and affiliated professionals labelling an ever-expanding range of psychological phenomena, like grief and tantrums, as disorders that need medicating. Lovely, profitable medication.

    However it occurs and is perpetuated, invoking mental health to explain unpleasant behaviours is clearly a widespread habit, and even if it is sometimes understandable, its not really helpful.

    Folk Punk Legend Stood 180 Feet Tall, Played Guitar Made Out of a Train "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    GUILFORD, Conn. Folk-punk legend Ol Tom Tassy, rumored to stand 180 feet tall and use a modified train car as a guitar, was allegedly seen busking along the towns main drag last Sunday, report local shoppers.

    It had to be Ol Tom Tassy, said green grocer Martha Swaynos. He aint been round these parts since aught-six, last I heard. But whenever townspeople have too much spare change, and the weathers undeniably nice, you can bet Ol Tom Tassy wont be far off, just playing his tunes and asking passersby if they plan on finishing their sandwiches.

    Despite Ol Tom Tassys mythical size, few have ever come across the folk-punk legend and his guitar, fashioned from a fully functioning 1991 6-axle diesel Union Pacific locomotive, according to local lore.

    I heard he folded up the train like he was making a paper airplane, said Grout Shabwyck, a washtub bassist for competing folk-punk quartet Silly Switchyard Revue. Theres no better busker than Ol Tom Tassy, I tell you. I heard he can play 40 songs 40 times while drinking 40 forties of Colt 45. He once ate an entire dumpster full of cigarette butts for no money, on a dare.

    Locals say the walking tall tale, flanked by his trusty and crusty Bronco-sized dog, Bleh, allegedly wanders the town until nightfall, finally resting his colossal dreadlocked head in farmer Festus Jeffers barn.

    Bleh is usually in a stitched-up Rudimentary Peni shirt the size of a circus tent, said piano teacher Valerie Gittleman. Where on earth did someone silkscreen a Rudimentary Peni shirt that big?

    Many fear potential property damages from Ol Tom Tassy as the weather becomes warmer. Folks say he once ripped the roof off the local police station and played it like a washboard with a streetlight, said Village Candy Shoppe owner Seth Pompan. I heard his beard is so strong, it can actually carry his bindle.

    Townspeople have long wondered where the drifter originated from.

    Some say it was just one man who came in on a slow-rolling freighter to Missoula. Others say hes a bearded composite of several troubadour tramps, said town historian Cl...

    These Are the Early Warning Signs That Most Cancers Have in Common "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    Most people dont bother to learn what the early warning signs of cancer are. That is until they or someone they love comes down with some form of the disease. I can understand why. People dont really like to think about their own mortality, much less a deadly disease that often strikes unexpectedly, and costs tens of thousands of dollars to treat. Plus, there are so many forms of cancer with differing symptoms. Trying to learn them all can seem quite daunting.

    (Sign up for our FREE newsletter to get the latest prepping advice, gardening secrets, homesteading tips and more delivered straight to your inbox!)

    Fortunately, there are a handful of symptoms that most or all forms of cancer share. Learning these symptoms can help you get on the path to treatment as soon as possible, and better your odds of survival. Dont let squeamishness keep you from learning about these critical signs:

    1. One of the first signs is sudden and unexplained weight loss. Its also one of the most common symptoms among cancer patients. Even before patients begin treatments like chemotherapy, they often experience a loss of appetite as part of a metabolic syndrome called cachexia.
    2. Along with weight loss and a lack of appetite, cancer can take a lot out of you, and leave your body with fewer resources for normal functions. Thats why common symptoms include sores and other injuries that refuse to heal.
    3. Cancer can often lead to various forms of internal bleeding. Thats why you should look out for blood in vomit, urine or feces. And because of that blood loss, you may begin to experience severe and persistent fatigue, regardless of whether or not you see any blood.
    4. Though cancer occurs in part because your immune system has failed to overcome it, that doesnt mean that your immune is twiddling its thumbs. Cancer can cause a potent immune response, and with that, a fever that can last days or weeks.
    5. Obviously, if you notice a mole on your skin that continues to grow, it could be a sign of skin cancer. However, there are multiple skin conditions that can be signs other forms of cancer. If you notice a rash; skin that is darkened, yellowed, or red; or skin that suddenly sprouts more hair than usual, it can indicate multiple forms of cancer.
    6. And finally, pay attention to any lumps that you can feel under the skin. Most people know that lumps in the testicles or breast tissue can be...

    AsRock H110 Pro BTC+ Mining Motherboard with 13 PCI-E Slots "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    If you thought AsRock is getting behind in the game lately as far as GPU crypto mining motherboards go, well thing again even though they havent had a new Pro BTC motherboard since the H81 Pro BTC they are not sleeping apparently and the recent shortages of that particular and popular model. At Computex 2017 the company has showcased an upcoming product that has caught the attention of the mining community, a motherboard with 13 PCI-Express slots for up to 13 video cards, connected via PCI-E extenders of course as the slots are pretty tightly fitted on the motherboard to retain a standard size.

    The new motherboard is called Asrock H110 Pro BTC+ and is soon-to-be-launched (no exact launch date given yet) it even has an M.2 slot onboard, though 14th card via M.2 to PCIe might be a bit too much to expect to work, but who knows. Other than the new chipset and the staggering 13 PCIe slots, the new motherboard seems to follow the design of the previous generation of Pro BTC boards, simplistic and cost effective. Of course the H110 chipset means that you would need to go to the newer Socket 1151 CPUs such as the Intel G3900 series of processors as well as the newer DDR4 memory.

    Well probably have to wait a bit more for additional details such as the full specifications, pricing as well as release date and availability. You can expect the demand to be pretty high though, even considering that the demonstrated solution during Computex in Taipei, Taiwan apparently used Windows and had only 8 GPUs running (based on the available information), but all 13 should be available for use when the new motherboard hits the market hopefully soon (not yet sure if they will work under Windows though).

    Vietnam pledges to investigate massive illegal logging violations as international pressure grows "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam After several weeks of silence, the Vietnamese government announced that is working to begin an investigation into allegations of widespread illegal logging in Cambodia directed by Vietnamese companies and provincial government officials. Earlier this month the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA) released a damning report which detailed mass-scale illegal logging in Cambodian national parks, as well as the importation of this unlicensed timber into Vietnams Central Highlands. In addition to the report, the organization has released an online library of documents in Vietnamese and satellite images detailing the smuggling operation. In the weeks immediately after the undercover investigation went public, little was done to rectify the situation. However several sources have shared with Mongabay that last week, Vietnam finally announced that it was looking into the issue. Phuc Xuan Tho, a program analyst at the international NGO Forest Trends, told Mongabay in an email that the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD) had informed him of the investigation, but did not provide details on its breadth or depth. Nguyen Van Ha, deputy director general of the Administration of Forestry under MARD, explained that the ministry has sent a report Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc asking him to assign the organization to conduct a full investigation into the reports allegations. Ha says they are still waiting for a response. Phuc is currently in the United States on an official visit to Washington D.C.

    Lizard DNA reveals Indias grasslands are likely pre-human and need protection "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    It started out as an interest in lacertids a family of small lizards native to Asia, Europe, and Africa an itch to understand what was going on with these lizards, according to Dr. Ishan Agarwal, biologist at Villanova University, Pennsylvania. Lacertids are abundant in India, where there are ten known species, but scientists believe there may be dozens more that remain undescribed. Agarwals desire to better understand lacertids led him and colleague Dr. Uma Ramakrishnan, a molecular ecologist at the Ecology and Evolution department of the National Centre for Biological Sciences (part of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bangalore), to make an unexpected discovery recently published in the Journal of Biogeography. The rich diversity of lacertids implies that many grasslands and other open habitats likely predate humans and have underestimated biodiversity. The team analyzed DNA from Indian lacertids found in several Indian tropical grassy biomes (TGBs), mainly of the genus Ophisops (collectively known as snake-eyed lizards).

    7 natural ways to kill nicotine cravings for anyone who is trying to quit smoking "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Healthy Cures

    There are 1.1 billion tobacco users in the world, and tobacco kills up to 50% of them (ASH). The CDC reports that smoking causes 90% of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than dying in wars fought by the United States during its history.

    Its deadly risk stems from inhaling over 7,000 ingredients, such as arsenic, butane (in lighter fluid), carbon monoxide (competes with, and displaces oxygen on hemoglobin in red blood cell, so cells do not receive the proper amount of oxygen), and tiny glass particles (cuts up lungs to enhance nicotine delivery).


    What Are the Effects of Smoking on your Health?

    Inhaling these chemicals first-hand, second-hand, or third hand (typically embedded in fabric) does not just lead to lung related illnesses such as lung cancer or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). It can also lead to heart diseases, like heart attacks or congestive heart failure, by damaging heart and blood vessel integrity due to increased plaque deposits.

    Aerospace Billionaire & NASA Partner Tells CBS About the ET Presence on Earth "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Terence Newton; Waking Times

    In a recent broadcast of CBS 60 Minutes, host Lara Logan sat down with billionaire Robert Bigelow, an entrepreneur and pioneer in the private sector aerospace industry. After giving his thoughts on the future of space exploration, Bigelow was asked if he believes in aliens, and given Bigelows partnership with NASA, SpaceX and other cutting edge companies, he is in a unique position to speak on this matter.

    His company, Bigelow Aerospace is presently designing expendable space craft which can be used for a variety of purposes in outer space, and another company of his has for years been a consultant for NASA on reports of UFOs and other unexplainable sightings and events. Bigelow has spent hundreds of millions of dollars of his own money to advance space exploration.

    The FAA confirmed to us that for years, it referred reports of UFOs and other unexplained phenomena to a company Bigelow owns. [Source]
    In response to Logan regarding his belief in aliens, Bigelow says they exist right under our noses, yet he declined to comment on the details of his personal experiences or those of the FAA.

    His comments are seen in the transcript below:


    Lara Logan: Do you believe in aliens?

    Robert Bigelow: Im absolutely convinced. Thats all there is to it.

    Lara Logan: Do you also believe that UFOs have come to Earth?

    Robert Bigelow: There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on this subject.

    Bernard Davies will start from the proposition that the local authority youth service may well have disappeared by 2020 as the model for supporting and providing open access youth work. Recognising that the state is a complex and contested concept whose past intrusions into this form of practice with young people have not always been helpful, his recently published article in Youth and Policy 116 on which his talk will draw seeks to break out of the neo-liberal mind-set to re-imagine, for youth work, more appropriate state responses.

    Anunnaki Portals Spawn Across The Globe "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    A malevolent race of extraterrestrials known as the Anunnaki visited Earth, probed its defenses, and engaged in skirmishes with military forces across the globe, says Professor Thomas P. Lowell, a theoretical physicist who has spent fifteen years unraveling the mysteries of alien intruders. These nightmarish giantssome of which stand fifteen feet talloriginate from the second planet in the Nibiru system. But unlike other extraterrestrial races, the Anunnaki use portals rather than spacecraft to travel between Earth and their native world.

    According to Professor Lowell, the Anunnaki created a series of portals, or gateways, over ten thousand years ago, during one of Nibirus first recorded passages through our inner solar system. These doorways to Nibiru, he says, are static omnidirectional corridors normally visible only to Anunnaki. To avoid detection, they erected interplanetary gateways in isolated geographical locations unsuitable for urban development; in other words, the Anunnaki accurately predictedor had the ability to look in the futurewhere humankind would ultimately build towns, cities, and metropolises. The majority of gateways are hidden in the Middle East, in places such as Iraq, Iran, Syria, and Yemen, secreted away in vast, uninhabited deserts.

    These nightmarish giants wanted to emerge from the portals undetected, said Professor Lowell. They are very adaptive; once in our world, the can even assume the guise of a human, if they wish. While the Anunnaki have indeed meddled in earthly affairs, their main mission is to prepare the Anunnaki counterpart of the CIA-issued World Factbook, complete with detailed Guide to Country profiles, which they want to have ready by the time of Nibirus scheduled arrival timewhich Professor ...

Youll be needing less materials to build up a shelter once youve found a fallen Juniper tree. It will keep you dry during rainy days and safe from too much heat. For temporary homes, it is one of the best options to choose.

    Youll need a Juniper tree that is still compact to serve as your framework. Check to see if there are any living organisms that are hazardous. Their presence may cause irritation, injury or even yield to serious diseases. Look for round, fruit-like objects attached to a tree and a sticky brown sap to ensure its a Juniper tree.

    Watch Simon & Garfunkel Sing The Sound of Silence 45 Years After Its Release, and Just Get Hauntingly Better with Time "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    The legend of Simon & Garfunkel is bigger than either performer, though only one of them remained a major star after their breakup, while the other became... too often the butt of unkind jokes. At the pinnacle of their fame in 1970, Art Garfunkel, the tall angelic singer with the golden halo of curls, walked away from the duo as their relationship soured. Garfunkel moved to Connecticut and became a math teacher for a spell. I would talk them through a math problem, he remembered in 2015, and ask if anyone had any questions and they would say: What were the Beatles like?

    Paul Simon, Garfunkel recalled of the acrimonious split, was getting on my nerves. The jokes had run dry. Perhaps its for the best they quit when they were ahead since their friendship never recovered. After their famous Central Park reunion concert in 1981, a planned tour fell apart when they stopped speaking to each other. At their 1990 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the duo played three songs and reportedly left without a word exchanged between them. Arthur and I agree about almost nothing, Simon remarked. Their split has all the qualities of a terrible divorce.




    Luckily for their fans, the two have infrequently given their partnership another shot, staging tours in 1993 and 2004. And in 2009, Garfunkel showed up for three songs during a Simon concert at New Yorks Beacon theater. This led to a tour of Asia and Australia and, as you can see up top, an appearance together at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fames 25th Anniversary Concert at Madison Square Garden, where they played one of their biggest hitsand arguably one of Simons greatest songsThe Sound of Silence (1964). If you didnt already know that they cant stand each others company, youd hardly guess it from the video.

    After Simons gently plucked guitar intro, they exchange brief but genuine smiles, then launch into harmony, their voices blending with all the haunting beauty of their heyday. In fact, its possible thatdespite the bitterness and wear of several deca...

    Dark Subliminal Suggestions "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    In order to understand the System of Programming and Control and even more so, how to escape the Matrix  you have to understand the power of subliminal suggestion. The world is full of dark and negative subliminal suggestions designed to influence your attitudes and inner feelings and therefore your actions. Thats how programming and control works. Its the constant subliminal drip-feed of fear, negativity, and the rigid intellectual opinions of the world around you all designed to influence your conscious and subconscious human mind.

    There is no way to maintain the quality of your own consciousness without being able to neutralize the dark and negative subliminal suggestions of the outside world. You have to be able to neutralize the messages of fear, negativity, and the rigid intellectual opinions of the world that disempower you and counter them with opposite messages that empower you.

    You also have to understand that negative subliminal suggestions may not necessarily sound negative. Positive-sounding messages can conceal dark motives and agendas. Programming is a very clever and deceptive thing. Things are not always what they seem. Many things are the exact opposite of what they seem. So, you have to be clever and perceptive. You have to look past the positive and negative sound of things to perceive the hidden agenda behind things. You have to remember that the world of ego is the facade of the White Shadow, and you have to look beyond that facade to perceive what is real, what is not, and who is telling lies.

    The world of ego uses positive-sounding messages to gain your allegiance and support. But using positive-sounding ideologies to achieve dark economic, personal, or political agendas is still a negative thing. Its called brainwashing and manufacturing consent. Its called a con-job. And the world uses negative-sounding messages to gain your allegiance and support by inducing fear and then selling you solutions and the Illusions of Security. The backside agenda is always control, greed, and profit all at the expense of your liberation.

    And while you may think that these dark subliminal suggestions come only from corporations, institutions, and political agendas through advertising, media, and the mainstream news the reality is that the dark subliminal suggestions of fear, negativity, and rigid intellectual opinions come through the very mouths of the peop...

    The U.S. Governments Secret Plans To Survive A Nuclear War (While The Rest Of Us Die) "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    Image source: Bing / About Site R

    WASHINGTON Americas leaders have made elaborate preparations to survive a nuclear war while everyone else apparently dies.

    The plans go back decades and only cover top government officials, according to a new book.

    In the early 1950s, the government really hoped and believed it would be able to save most Americans, writer Garrett M. Graff told The Washington Post. But plans and ambitions gradually shrunk until, realistically, the best they could hope to do is save the senior leadership.

    Graff describes the elaborate plan in the book Raven Rock: The Story of the U.S. Governments Secret Plan to Save Itself While the Rest of Us Die.

    Graff discovered that the federal government maintains several huge secret underground fortresses where officials, officers and politicians but not average citizens would survive nuclear war in relative luxury. One of them,

    How do you create and eventually scale a successful business? It's a complicated question. And you can do worse than get answers from Reid Hoffman. He's currently a partner at the venture capital firm Greylock Partners. But you probably know him best as the co-founder of LinkedIn, the professional social network site recently acquired by Microsoft for $26 billion dollars. In his new podcast, Masters of Scale, Hoffman looks at how companies grow from zero users to a gazillion by interviewing fellow Silicon Valley entrepreneurs who have crossed that bridge. Guests include Facebooks Mark Zuckerberg & Sheryl Sandberg, Netflixs Reed Hastings, and Googles Eric Schmidt, among others.

    Even if you work in a business with more modest aspirations, there's some wisdom you can take away from these wide-ranging conversations. Hoffman's conversation with Airbnb's CEO Brian Chesky (above) about hand-crafting customer experiences would help you run almost any business. You can find the Masters of Scale podcast on iTunes, StitcherEntrepreneur.com, Spotify, and Google Play.

    West Virginia Nixes Enviro Groups Appeal of Mountain Valley Pipeline

    From an Article by Jamison Conklin, Natural Gas Intelligence, May 17, 2017

    The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection has denied an environmental groups hearing request to appeal the states water quality certification for the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

    In a short letter sent to citizens and the nonprofit environmental organization Appalachian Mountain Advocates last week, WVDEP Secretary Austin Caperton denied the hearing under state law, which gives him, rather than a regulatory board, discretion over the matter.

    The agency issued the pipelines Section 401 Water Quality Certification in March after three public hearings on the project across the state. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last month delayed the projects final environmental impact statement to June 23 to consider more information, and other state permits are still pending. Opponents of the pipeline appealed the water quality certification claiming the agency did not have enough information to issue it.

    The 300-mile pipeline would originate in Wetzel County, WV, and move up to 2 million Dth/d of Marcellus and Utica shale gas to an interconnect with the Transcontinental Gas Pipe Line in Pittsylvania County, VA, for delivery to the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. It is expected to be in-service by 4Q2018. The project is a joint venture of EQT Midstream Partners LP, NextEra US Gas Assets LLC, Con Edison Transmission Inc., WGL Midstream and RGC Midstream LLC.

    Buyer Beware: Soaps and Sanitizers May Increase Absorption of Dangerous BPA "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

    By Dr. Mercola

    Bisphenol-A (BPA) is an endocrine-disrupting chemical found in countless personal care and plastic products, including the lining of canned goods, nonstick food containers, water bottles and even cashier's receipts. It was first created in 1891, but didn't appear in manufactured products until the 1950s.

    Although the American Chemistry Council, an industry trade group, has consistently insisted BPA is safe,1,2 this is contrary to the weight of evidence. The chemical has been banned from use in sippy cups and other baby products due to potential health risks to infants.3 Manufacturers prize BPA as an additive to plastics as it makes the final product more resilient and often transparent. BPA resins are also used to keep metal from corroding. It's used in an estimated 75 percent of canned goods sold in the U.S.

    Despite strong scientific evidence of negative health effects, and relentless health advocacy group work to remove the chemical, the industry was valued at over $13 billion in 2013 and is expected to reach $20 billion by 2020.4 In response to consumer concerns some food companies have agreed to stop using BPA.

    However, this may not have the effect you expect, as research demonstrates these substitute chemicals may cross the placental barrier, increasing the toxic load on infants,5 and may have similar endocrine-disrupting effects on adults since they are nearly identical chemical compounds. Making matters worse, certain soaps and sanitizers may increase your absorption of BPA, making it all the more dangerous.

    What's the Problem With BPA?

    Primarily, BPA is a strong endocrine disruptor. Basically, this means the chemical is similar in structure to a natural hormone  in this case, estrogen  and then interferes with the function of the hormone in your body. While estrogen is typically thought of as the female sex hormone, it also has other functions.

    Your hormones are secreted by your endocrine system,...

    Why Managing Your Iron Level Is Crucial to Your Health "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Dr. Mercola

    Iron is essential for human life, as it:1

    • Forms hemoglobin (the protein in red blood cells), as iron binds to oxygen and provides it to tissues for their metabolic needs
    • Is a key component of various proteins, as well as enzymes that catalyze cellular oxidation reactions
    • Helps regulate cell growth and differentiation
    • Helps maintain your brain function, metabolism and endocrine function
    • Is involved in energy production and immune function

    Having either too much or too little iron can have serious health consequences and, while iron-deficiency anemia is commonly checked for, many doctors are still seriously misinformed about the dangers of iron overload, which is actually a far more common problem. In fact, most men and postmenopausal women are at risk for iron overload due to inefficient iron excretion, since they do not bleed on a regular basis and blood loss is the primary way to lower excess iron, as the body has no active excretion mechanisms.

    There's also an inherited disease, hemochromatosis, which causes your body to accumulate excessive and dangerously damaging levels of iron. If left untreated, it can damage your organs and contribute to cancer, heart disease, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases and many other health problems.

    The good news is iron overload is easy and inexpensive to treat. By monitoring your serum ferritin and/or GGT levels, avoiding iron supplements and donating blood on a regular basis, you can avoid serious health problems. In a recent podcast, Chris Masterjohn, Ph.D., delves into the biological imperatives of iron, the effects of low and high iron, and how to address both of those issues. You can find that episode on Masterjohns website.2

    Health Problems Associated With High and Low Iron

    Having just the right amount of iron is important, as without it, your body cannot work properly, and with excess, iron causes a great deal of destructive harm within your body. Following is a list of conditions associated with either extreme:3

    Why Screening and Commonly Prescribed Thyroid Drugs Often Fail to Relieve Symptoms "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Dr. Mercola

    Your thyroid gland, located in the front of your neck, influences almost every cell in your body. Thyroid hormones regulate your metabolism, and are required for growth and development in children and nearly every physiological process in your body.

    When your thyroid levels are unbalanced, it can spell trouble for your overall health and wellness. Evidence suggests nearly 60 percent of people with suboptimal thyroid function are unaware of their condition.1 While prevalent, it is often easily treatable and may reverse symptoms of other health conditions.

    Poor thyroid function is linked to health conditions such as fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, eczema, gum disease and autoimmune disorders. Symptoms of low function and the health conditions affected by low levels are varied, as the hormone is used throughout your body.

    Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have low thyroid function and 1 in 8 women will develop a thyroid disorder in her lifetime.2 Understanding the basics of how your thyroid functions and what may cause a dysfunction is important to your overall health.

    Thyroid Function

    Your thyroid gland is shaped like a butterfly on your neck just under your voice box and secretes four hormones: T1, T2, T3 and T4. The number indicates the number of molecules of iodide attached to the hormone. These hormones interact with other hormones, such as insulin, cortisol and sex hormones.

    Your hypothalamus secretes thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) that triggers the pituitary gland to release thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) that then causes your thyroid to release T4. Almost 90 percent of your thyroid hormone is released in an inactive form of T4. Your liver then converts T4 to T3 with the help of an enzyme. T2 is currently the least understood form of thyroid hormone and is the subject of a number of ongoing studies.

    When everything is working properly, your body makes enough T4 that is converted to T3 to control the metabolism of every cell in your body. T3 is critical in the communication of messages to your DNA to increase your metabolism by burning fat. In this way, it helps keep you lean. Nutritional imbalances, toxic exposures, allergens, infections and stress can disrupt this hormonal balance, leading to a series of health complicat...

Rich was talking to his girlfriend and then suddenly told her he had to go.  According to his parents at 4:18am in the morning there were two shots fired.  Police found Rich conscious and breathing but he died later in a hospital.  The killer or killers took nothing from their victim, leaving behind his wallet, watch and phone.

    Seth Richs father Joel told reporters, If it was a robbery it failed because he still has his watch, he still has his money he still has his credit cards, still had his phone so it was a wasted effort except we lost a life.

    Pressure builds on palm oil firm Goodhope after RSPO sanction "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    A month after the worlds largest sustainable palm oil association took action against one of its most prominent members, Goodhope Asia Holdings, over failures to comply with its standards on new planting, doubts remain over the future of their relationship. On Apr. 28, the Complaints Panel of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) wrote to the Singapore-based company calling for work to be frozen on seven concessions in Indonesia as a result of poor quality audits and insufficient documentation, which fell short of the requirements of the bodys New Planting Procedures. Issues reportedly included failures to protect areas of high conservation value, such as primary forests; to identify how the company had negotiated with local communities to use their land; and to submit documentation identifying land converted from forest to palm. The RSPO said the action was taken as a precautionary measure, as it set out a series of deadlines for Goodhope to re-do crucial land assessments and submit new documents. In what was heralded by environmental groups as a rare move from an association often accused of failing to uphold its own sustainability standards, the RSPO warned Goodhope that any deviation from this timeline would be viewed severely and may lead to suspension and eventual termination of membership. However, in a progress update sent to stakeholders earlier this month, Goodhope suggested that it would not be able to meet all the deadlines. Goodhope has been trying to expedite the works to meet all the necessary requirements as set

    TAHLEQUAH Twelve cyclists participating in the 2017 Remember the Removal Bike Ride left the Cherokee Nation Tuesday to begin a three-week, 950-mile trek retracing the northern route of the Trail of Tears.

    The Cherokee Nation cyclists will join eight cyclists from the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians in Cherokee, North Carolina, and will begin their ride in New Echota, Georgia, on June 4. The ride spans seven states before concluding in Tahlequah on June 22.

    Each and every year, the Remember the Removal effort enables some of Cherokee Nations strongest emerging leaders to participate in a unique event that is focused on individual growth, teamwork development and, most importantly, sharing Cherokee history and heritage, Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said. The journey from Georgia to Oklahoma is mentally and physically challenging, and these young people will return home in a few weeks with a new and profound appreciation of the multitude of sacrifices our ancestors made along the Trail of Tears.

    The original Remember the Removal Bike Ride was in 1984, with the leadership program resuming in 2009. Participants learn about Cherokee Nation history, language and culture and get a glimpse of the hardships their ancestors faced while making the journey on foot.

    In 1838, Cherokees were rounded up and forced from their homes in Georgia, Tennessee and other southeastern states to the Cherokee Nations current capital in Tahlequah. Of approximately 16,000 Cherokees who were forced to make the trek to Indian Territory, it is estimated that 4,000 died from exposure, disease and starvation.

    The Secret Bailout of J. P. Morgan: How Insider Trading Looted the American Taxpayer "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    The mother of all insider trades was pulled off in 1815, when London financier Nathan Rothschild led British investors to believe that the Duke of Wellington had lost to Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo. 

    In a matter of hours, British government bond prices plummeted. Rothschild, who had advance information, then swiftly bought up the entire market in government bonds, acquiring a dominant holding in Englands debt for pennies on the pound. (Read more on the subject HERE).

    Over the course of the nineteenth century, N. M. Rothschild would become the biggest bank in the world, and the five brothers would come to control most of the foreign-loan business of Europe.

    Let me issue and control a nations money, Rothschild boasted in 1838, and I care not who writes its laws.

    BREAKING NEWS: SEAL TEAM 6 POSSIBLY LIQUIDATED IN NORTH KOREA, ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT OF DEAR LEADER KIM JONG-UN "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    BREAKING NEWS: SEAL TEAM 6 POSSIBLY LIQUIDATED IN NORTH KOREA, ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT OF DEAR LEADER KIM JONG-UN !

    Russian military experts are indicating the Americans may have a problem with a SEAL team operating inside North Korea on a recon mission, gone horribly wrong.

    South Korean news had previously reported that the USS Michigan, a submarine that moves special forces like US Navy SEALs, had joined the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier strike group off of North Koreas coast after a secret mission.

    The US Navy has refused to comment on the movements of SEAL Team 6, the group of Navy SEALs who took out Osama bin Laden in 2011, to News Front, and it normally doesnt advertise the whereabouts of its submarines, as its missions are meant to be secretive.

    Signals intelligence recieved by Russian Far Eastern command, seemed to indicate a patrol had been inserted on a ground recon mission inside North Korean territory and that a chance encounter with a dog patrol had led to casualties among the American forces who broke radio silence to ask for help.

    The Pentagon told News Front that the US does not train for decapitation strikes of any kind, but it would not confirm or deny the presence of the SEALs inside North Korea, at this time.

    There has been a flurry of activity on the peninsula recently, with US training operations, naval maneuvers and now late word of the SEAL team misadventure.

    The USS Michigan adds a stealth element and an extra set of eyes and ears to the already potent carrier strike group in operation on North Koreas coast, but it doesnt add much firepower. The US Navy destroyers accompanying the Vinson already have the kind of Tomahawk missiles the Michigan has. This is what originally set off the alert Americans were on the ground, as there was no need for the submarine there, except to insert special forces.

    Is This Supposed To Be Funny?: Trumps Severed Head Featured In New Kathy Griffin Photo Shoot ***GRAPHIC IMAGERY*** "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    Over the past few months, weve all seen plenty of has-been celebrities make ugly, and often violent statements toward President Trump. But what youre about to see takes the cake.

    On Tuesday, images of a photo shoot involving comedian Kathy Griffin surfaced, which show her holding up a fake bloody Trump head. The photos were taken by Tyler Shields, who is known for producing shocking images. Since then, both liberals and conservatives have condemned the stunt, and many Trump supporters have called for her arrest.

    Its hard to fathom the kind of warped mind that would think this is provocative, edgy, or funny. Its just gross. This is yet another example of an anti-trump celebrity who has no sense of class or self-awareness.

    But lets not get carried away. All of these Trump supporters who are calling for her arrest are being a bit too sensitive. Thats exactly the sort of thing that the regressive left is often guilty of. Theyre the ones who have a reputation for being hypersensitive, and calling for the arrests of people they disagree with (it should be noted that neither Kathy Griffin nor Tyler Shields have actually called for Trumps death).

    Instead, Trump supporters should be focusing on the hypocrisy of this. What would have happened if a conservative publicly held up a bloody head of President Obama? In all likelihood the Left would be foaming at the mouth. That person would be called a racist and a fascist, and the public outcry would probably ruin his career. The braying leftists would demand an apology, which he would give, even though it probably wouldnt fully repair his career. He would be slammed with death threats. And yes, people would call for his arrest.

    Instead of freaking out about this, Trump supporters need to calmly call this out for what it is. Its disgusting and sad. Its a desperate cry for attention and relevance. And its a perfect example of how leftists are painfully unfunny.

    Heres whats really going on with this stunt: When you come to hate someone with a burning passion, you lose all sense of proportion and civility, and it becomes impossible to have a sense of humor about the person you hate. Thats because real comedy never comes from a place of hatred, which explains why the far-left is teeming with a bunch of humorless killjoys. Theyre so consumed with hatred and self-righteous rage that they can neither take a joke, nor make a joke.

    What Kathy Griffin just did, is basically the lefts.....

    The Provocation Deception: Is North Korea Provoking the US or the Other Way Around? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    The North Korea provocation is dominating the attention of the media and many people around the world, who are fearful the tensions between North Korea and the US may erupt into a war.

    If China gets involved (and lets face it how can China not get involved if fighting breaks out on the Korean peninsula which is right on its doorstep?), we could be into a World War 3 scenario with the US on one side and China (and therefore Russia) on the other.

    The term North Korea provocation itself is ambiguous, because it could imply that the North Korea is the active party doing the provoking, or it could imply that North Korea is the passive party being provoked.

    History clearly shows wherever Team USA is involved, the American political and military elite are always at least partly (and usually fully) the active agents doing the provoking, although they do a masterful job of spinning it to trick you into thinking the other party is the crazy, unlawful and aggressive one.

    On Memorial Day, an Artist Burns and Buries a Confederate Flag "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    The culmination of John Simss Memorial Day Burn and Bury event at NNamdi Center for Contemporary Art (image courtesy the artist)

    DETROIT One message I want to send to the nation is that the Civil War is supposed to be over, said artist John Sims during the opening address of his Burn and Bury event, staged on Memorial Day at the NNamdi Center for Contemporary Art. But as we know, its not over. All of us as Americans must confront the symbols and culture of white supremacy.

    The symbol in question on Monday was a Confederate flag, which went up in flames in the midst of an hours-long performance that commemorated the enduring legacy of racial oppression in the postCivil War United States, as well as the ongoing efforts of those who fight for justice.

    Artist John Sims before the ceremony (photo by the author for Hyperallergic)

    Flags are very powerful symbols, as markers for direct and indirect collections of shared values, histories, and futures, Sims told Hyperallergic by email before the ceremony. We see flags as a rally call, a brand, a focus point and reminder. Nations, military, schools, and even retails stores use flags. And so, there can be the perfect candidate to further intimidation and fear. And the Confederate flag, along with burning crosses, have come to instill fear in folks, especially African Americans.

    Stans boss spent the night drinking.  He was depressed and hurt because his wife left him.

    The next morning when Stan got to work, his hungover and miserable boss made his day hell.  Criticizing his work, moving up deadlines, forcing him to work the weekend and all around being cruel in his tone.

    That night when Stan got home from work he took out his frustrations on his wife.  He began to criticize her every action, and nothing she said or did was good enough.  His tone with her was pure venom.

    A little later his wife was telling their son to go to bed and the son was being difficult, not wanting to sleep.  His mother screamed at him and sent him to his room.

    On his way to his room, the son kicked the dog.

     

    Meet Sara:

    Sara was raised by a mother who was never around.  When she was around she abused sex and alcohol.

    Sara moved out when she was 16.  She began a lifestyle of partying every day.  She couldnt keep a job.  She became an alcoholic and abused sex.

     

    Meet Tim:

    Tims father used to hit him.  When he would forget to take out the garbage, he got hit.  If he got a bad grade at school, his father would hit him.

    Tim grew up, moved out, met a woman and had his own son.

    Tim would hit his son.  If he forgot to take out the garbage, Tim would hit him.  If he got a bad grade in school, Tim would hit him.

    Colin would spiral until he began blaming her for any of his problems.  Accusing her of various transgressions.  He would threaten and intimidate her.  Sometimes He would get physical and push her around.

    The next day Colin would apologize and promise to never do it again.  He would blame this or that and her for his anger.  He would tell her he didnt hurt her so she should get over it.  Sometimes he would deny the abuse occurred at all.

    For a while Megan would forget what Colin did and some time would pass where all was well between them.  Then the darkness would overtake Colin and the cycle would renew.

    Create Android Recyclerview adapters like a boss with MultiViewAdapter "IndyWatch Feed Education"

    Library for creating composable recyclerview adapters

    RecyclerView is an important widget in the Android framework and a large percentage of the Android apps out there use it. Its a powerful tool that covers many generic use-cases. However, because of this flexibility, theres a bit of work involved to create an adapter.

    The support for multiple viewtypes was one of the advantages of RecyclerView over legacy listview. But displaying multiple viewtypes requires a lot of boilerplate code. It can quickly get out of hand if you have more than three viewtypes. You may have multiple if-else conditions, switch cases, and so on. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to reuse the creation and binding code of viewholders.

    MultiViewAdapter is meant to solve this exact problem. There are a number of solutions available already, but such libraries have a few restrictions:

    1. Your data objects should have a common parent, which can interfere with your object modeling.
    2. You are forced to keep layout resource ID inside the model class itself. Again, this breaks dependency hierarchy.
    3. You are allowed to manage the view type ID yourself. Usually layout resource ID is returned as a view type. So you cant use the same layout file for two different view types.
    4. They dont take advantage of DiffUtil.
    5. You have to write switch cases, if you want to have different item-decorations/span-size/selection-modes for different view types.

    MultiViewAdapter solves all of these requirements. The library was specifically designed in a way that wont interfere with your object modeling and hierarchy.

    Source code

    DevAhamed/MultiViewAdapter

    Heres a sneak peek of what you can achieve with the library.

    Multiple view types, custom item decorations for different viewtypes, diffutil etc.,

    Features

    1. No restrictions about how you model your object classes and their hierarchy.
    2. Out of the box support for DiffUtil.
    3. Supports single selection and multi-selection.
    4. Each view type can have its own span count or ItemDecoration, among other things. You dont need switch cases or if-else conditions.

    How to use it

    Add the dependency in your apps gradle file.

    There is no love of life without despair of life, Albert Camus observed as he contemplated the relationship between happiness and despair shortly before his compatriot Jean-Paul Sartre penned his famous line that human life begins on the far side of despair. And yet we tend to relate to despair with extreme aversion, perceiving it as a source of suffering rather than a vitalizing force.

    Few experiences spur despair more readily than the assault on freedom and the loss of agency our sense that life, circumstance, or some other external actor is thwarting our desired outcomes.

    But freedom and despair, argues the great existential psychologist Rollo May (April 21, 1909October 22, 1994) in his 1981 book Freedom and Destiny (public library), are not the two poles of our spectrum of desire rather, they are complementary forces that counterbalance each other. By recalibrating our relationship to despair, we stand to know freedom more intimately and completely.

    American History of the Rothschilds and the Eight Most Powerful Families "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    The real power behind the United States is the Rothschild banking family, which can trace its roots to 1743 when Moses Amschel Bauer put the red hexagram above his doorway. 

    That was also the year his son Mayer was born in Bavaria. In 1760 Mayer would change the family name from Bauer to Rothschild after that red hexagram sign (Rot is German for red and Schild means sign).

    Mayer Rothschild continued his fathers money lending business and also got into the business of hiring out Hessian mercenaries to foreign countries at war, resulting in vast profits for the family.

    Loaning to governments directly was the logical next step, mainly because it was more profitable than loaning to individuals.

    Crocin may exhibit significant melanoma tumor remission properties by positively modulating tumor growth related parameters. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Asian Pac J Cancer Prev. 2017 03 1 ;18(3):841-846. Epub 2017 Mar 1. PMID: 28441796 Abstract Title:  Role of Dietary Crocin in In Vivo Melanoma Tumor Remission Abstract:  Background: Melanoma is a deadly form of malignancy. Early diagnosis might pave the way to cure but its aggressive nature leads to rapid dissemination and colonization of distant organs. Dietary herbs may play a significant role in prevention of cancer. In this study, we tested anti-tumor efficacy of the Crocus sativus derived active constituent crocin, it is well established to have anti-cancer properties in different cancer models by our group and other groups. Notably, crocin is reported to exert anti-proliferative effect on melanoma cells (B16F10) in vitro. However, roles of crocin on in vivo melanoma tumor remission have not yet been reported to our knowledge. Materials and Methods: Melanoma tumor model was established by transplanting B16F10 (5 X 105) cells into C57BL/6 mice, which were then observed for tumor development and once the tumor volume reached 6 mm, mice were divided into (Group I: tumor-bearing animals treated with normal saline and Group II: counterparts treated with crocin at 2 mg/kg body weight for 21 days). . Tumor remission and tumor growth related parameters such as tumor silent period (TSP), tumor volume doubling time (VDT), growth delay (GD), and mean survival time (MST) were determined. In addition, serum protein profiles were analyzed. Results: The 21 days crocin treatment significantly reduced the tumor burden in mice, extending the mean survival time significantly as compared to control. Crocin treatment also significantly increased the TGD and TSP and decreased VDT. Furthermore, while serum proteins such as albumin and globulin (alpha1, alpha2, beta, and gamma) were altered due to tumor burden, crocin treatment resulted in their levels near to normal at the end of the experimental period. Conclusion: Our study provided clear evidence that crocin may exhibit significant melanoma tumor remission properties by positively modulating tumor growth related parameters. In future, the molecular mechanisms of crocin action should be studied extensively in melanoma models before defining crocin-based melanoma drug formulations.

    Homophobic Man Comes Out As Gay Friends Say Its About Damn Time "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    SAN FRANCISCO, California  

    Johnathan Johnny Smith, 28, has lived in San Francisco his whole life, and always said how much he hated it.

    Its because of the fags, Smith said. I always hated them with their little dogs and their perfect, chizled abs, and their tight butts, and ohh, my God, their taste in music. I mean ABBA? Have you ever heard such terrible music?

    According to Smith, though, he finally relaxed a few weeks ago, after meeting and falling in love with his palates trainer, Dominic.

    It turns out I was gay all this time, said Smith. I was a self-loathing fag, and I just couldnt admit it to anyone. Thats what my shrink says, anyway. It was all about projection. Im so glad that I cleared all this up, though.

    Smiths friends say that its About damn time that he come out of the closet.

    Ive known Johnny since we were both 4-years-old, said longtime friend Bryan Healy. He used to wipe his little pee pee out, and chase all the boys, yelling suck me! suck me! up until the time he was about 14. It really kind of stopped being cute somewhere along the way, and was more disturbing. When he started saying that he hated gay people, we just couldnt believe it. Hes clearly always been into guys.

    Oh my God, I just cannot wait to go shopping tonight with Dom, said Smith. He promised to take me out for a fancy dinner, as long as I eat light, like a salad or maybe just a couple of olives or something, and then take me to a movie! We are going to see Baywatch, cause mmm mmm Dwayne The Rock and those abs? Oh baby, I should have come out years ago.

    NSW coach Laurie Daley has given Jarryd Hayne permission to play for both states in tonights State of Origin match.

    We dont want Jarryd to feel confined to a particular position so if he wants to play a little bit for NSW and a little bit for Queensland then Im happy with that, Daley told reporters this morning.

    You cant cage a player like Hayne, he needs to feel free to play his natural game and also needs to feel free to play with any team he likes too.

    The maroons have told the media they are happy for Jarryd to play some minutes for them tonight.

    If Jarryd wants to slap on a maroons jersey for a bit and then swap back, we wont stand in his way, Queensland coach Kevin Walters told us.

    Hayne is expected to take the field for both teams in the first half before making his way to the commentary box to dabble in some analysis on how he played.

    Rock Concert In Maine Now Holds World Record For Most Overdoses At a Public Event "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    BANGOR, Maine  

    A rock concert held last week in Maine now holds the Guinness World Record for the most overdoses on drugs at any public event.

    According to the Guinness Records department, a reported 387 people overdosed, and 196 of those lead to death, at a recent concert in the small Northern city. The event, which featured a performance by a world famous rock act, according to police, had an estimated 15,000 people attending.

    In comparison to the number of attendees, th3 fact that there were only 387 overdoses seems comparatively small, I know, said event organizer John Maynard. But we really struggled to reach that number. Its against the rules for the show to hand out or sell heavy narcotics just to hit the world record, and we definitely didnt want to spoil our chances.

    For those who attended the concert, they said it was just another night at a rock show, and that most people didnt even notice the violent convulsions, vomiting, or people passing out.

    The show was too good for me to even care, dude, said Kyle Chaplin, 26. I heard that a shit ton of people ODd, and that a bunch died, too. That sucks for them, seriously. But like, its a rock show man. Shits bound to happen. Cool thing was that as soon as people started passing out and shit, it made it really easy to get up front into the good seats.

    Police say that the next event they will loosen security in hopes that they can move the record even higher. The next biggest number of overdoses was at Lollapalooza 1997, when 264 people ODd. In that case, only 75 ended up dead.

    Crocin administration may reduce inflammation-driven tissue damage in patients with hemorrhagic shock. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  J Interferon Cytokine Res. 2017 Apr 28. Epub 2017 Apr 28. PMID: 28453369 Abstract Title:  Inhibition of Inflammatory Response by Crocin Attenuates Hemorrhagic Shock-Induced Organ Damages in Rats. Abstract:  Hemorrhagic shock (HS) is associated with an excessive activation of inflammation, contributing to multiple organ failure in numerous medical or surgical conditions. To explore the therapeutic potential of crocin, a natural compound with anti-inflammatory properties, we administered crocin to rats during resuscitation following HS induced by withdrawing blood. Compared with control animals which were sham-treated, HS-operated rats showed organ damages as manifested by enhanced markers of multiple organ dysfunctions. Crocin treatment substantially reduced these parameters in rats subjected to HS, suggesting an alleviation of tissue injuries such as in the kidney, liver, pancreas, and muscle. The activation of NF-B (nuclear factor B) pathway in lung tissue by HS, as shown by increased nuclear translocation of p65 and IB phosphorylation, was diminished by crocin treatment. The crocin administration also significantly decreased the serum levels of proinflammatory cytokine TNF- (tumor necrosis factor-) and interleukin (IL)-6, whereas increased the level of anti-inflammatory cytokine IL-10 in HS-operated rats. These studies indicate that crocin administration may reduce inflammation-driven tissue damage in patients with HS.

    DISTURBING Trend On The Rise Among Goth Teens Snorting Blood! "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    NEW BRIGHTON, Pennsylvania  

    A new disturbing trend is on the rise throughout the United States, specifically among gothic teens snorting the blood of friends in an effort to become one with them.

    Its a new thing kids are doing not to get high, but to has some sort of internal bond with their close friends or significant other, said New Brighton Hospital Chief of Staff, Dr. Marvin Reece. The problem becomes, though, that these kids are not thinking about the consequences, or the danger that can come from snorting any liquid especially blood.

    Dr. Reece says he has treated more than a dozen cases of blood poisoning, where a teen has literally cut open their friend or boyfriend/girlfriend, and snorted the blood that dripped from the wound.

    Unfortunately, two of the teens have died. This is a serious issue, because aside from blood-borne diseases, there is also the very real risk and I know how silly this sounds of drowning in blood when they do this. Its a liquid going into your lungs, after all.

    Teens are urged to not try and snort anything, but especially not blood, says Dr. Reece. If youre going to snort anything, please just go back to the good ol normal stuff, like heroin and cocaine. Maybe some crushed adderall. Whatever you kids did before. Just stop snorting each others blood, okay?

    This study support the positive effect of Crocus sativus against Alzheimer's disease by reducing A pathological manifestations. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  ACS Chem Neurosci. 2017 May 15. Epub 2017 May 15. PMID: 28471166 Abstract Title:  Crocus sativus Extract Tightens the Blood-Brain Barrier, Reduces Amyloid Load and Related Toxicity in 5XFAD Mice. Abstract:  Crocus sativus, commonly known as saffron or Kesar, is used in Ayurveda and other folk medicines for various purposes as an aphrodisiac, antispasmodic, and expectorant. Previous evidence suggested that Crocus sativus is linked to improving cognitive function in Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. The aim of this study was to in vitro and in vivo investigate the mechanism(s) by which Crocus sativus exerts its positive effect against AD. The effect of Crocus sativus extract on A load and related toxicity was evaluated. In vitro results showed that Crocus sativus extract increases the tightness of a cell-based blood-brain barrier (BBB) model and enhances transport of A. Further in vivo studies confirmed the effect of Crocus sativus extract (50 mg/kg/day, added to mice diet) on the BBB tightness and function that was associated with reduced A load and related pathological changes in 5XFAD mice used as an AD model. Reduced A load could be explained, at least in part, by Crocus sativus extract effect to enhance A clearance pathways including BBB clearance, enzymatic degradation and ApoE clearance pathway. Furthermore, Crocus sativus extract upregulated synaptic proteins and reduced neuroinflammation associated with A pathology in the brains of 5XFAD mice. Crocin, a major active constituent of Crocus sativus and known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, was also tested separately in vivo in 5XFAD mice. Crocin (10 mg/kg/day) was able to reduce A load but to a lesser extent when compared to Crocus sativus extract. Collectively, findings from this study support the positive effect of Crocus sativus against AD by reducing A pathological manifestations.

    Crocin can be considered as a potential drug and sensitizer in cancer treatment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Iran J Pharm Res. 2017 ;16(1):230-237. PMID: 28496478 Abstract Title:  Study of Crocin&Radiotherapy-induced Cytotoxicity and Apoptosis in the Head and Neck Cancer (HN-5) Cell Line. Abstract:  Malignant tumors of head and neck carcinomas are the sixth most common type of cancer. Current systemic therapies for cancer show side effects in normal tissues and short-term efficacy due to drug resistance. Consequently, there is much interest in identifying new drugs for cancer treatment. Crocin (an active ingredient of saffron) has been shown to have cytotoxic effects on cancer cell lines. Chemo radiotherapy is the standard treatment for head and neck cancer. In the present study, the cytotoxic effects, inducing apoptosis and the radiation sensitivity of crocin were evaluated in the head and neck cancer cell line (HN-5). HN-5 cells were cultured in a DMEM medium and incubated with different concentrations of crocin (12.5-1000g/mL). They were exposed to 2 Gy -rays. Cell viability was quantified by the MTT assay. Apoptotic cells were determined using PI staining of DNA fragmentation by flowcytometry (sub-G1 peak). Crocin decreased cell viability in HN-5 cells in a time and concentration dependent manner. Crocin also induced a sub-G1 peak in the flowcytometery histogram of treated cells compared with the control, suggesting that apoptotic cell death is caused by its toxicity. Crocin was also shown to sensitize cells to radiation-induced toxicity and apoptosis. The simultaneous use of crocin and radiation therefore increases radiation sensitivity and cell death. Thus, after further study crocin can be considered as a potential drug and sensitizer in cancer treatment.

    The opening game of State of Origin may be in doubt as Queensland back-rower Aidan Guerra announces he will be missing the game over a pay dispute with the NRL.

    The star Roosters bench player made the call late last night, a declaration that has sent shockwaves throughout the rugby league community.

    We probably wont go ahead with the game because it just wont be the same without Guerra, maroons coach Kevin Walters admitted this morning.

    Not having Aidan making minimum yardage for a 15 minute period would take away from the spectacle too much.

    The NSW camp agreed with Kevin Walters assessment.

    If this had been Cameron Smith or even Cooper Cronk we may haver gone ahead with it, but no Guerra means no State of Origin series, NSW coach Laurie Daley said.

    New Super Poison Ivy Is Spreading Across The United States Why You DONT Want To Touch This Plant! "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    BOISE, Idaho  

    A new strain of poison ivy has been spotted in 11 states throughout the country, and botanists and scientists are completely baffled as to where it came from.

    According to hospital reports, 86 cases of rash and worse have been reported from the new strain of poison ivy, but the problem isnt so much of how its affecting people, but where.

    This new poison ivy, it only affects the genitals, said Dr. Kenneth Morse of Boise Medical Center. No matter where a person touches the plant on their body be it with a hand or a foot, or rubbing against a bare leg the symptoms only appear on the genitals.

    Of the 86 cases so far, 83 of them have been males, and most have seen symptoms ranging from small, red itchy dots on their penis, to full-blown engorged testicles. 4 of the men have had to undergo surgery to reduce swelling in their sacs.

    It was the most embarrassing thing Ive ever gone to the emergency room for, said Kyle Mann, 26. My balls were the size of pineapples. I didnt know what the hell was going on. Thankfully, Dr. Morse had already treated a few other guys with the same problem, so he knew what was happening. Sadly, they had to slice my balls open to let out some sort of bacterial fluid that was in there. Fucking scary, man.

    Dr. Morse says the plant looks nearly identical to regular poison ivy, so it is best to avoid going outside at all if you want to stay away from possible contamination.

    Sweden to Ban Roundup Herbicide and Vinegar? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Heather Callaghan, Editor

    Sweden may be going after the home use of weedkillers containing glyphosate due to fears of its toxicity levels. Strangely, some of the countrys authorities are taking this opportunity to ban the use of a less toxic weedkiller  vinegar.

    Claire Robinson of GM Watch writes that in a new report to the Swedish Government, it will only be possible for private users to use products containing low-risk substances. According to the preliminary assessment, glyphosate is not expected to be included among the low-risk substances which means it could be banned for home use in a few years time. [Note: these bans are for the home use of chemicals, and probably dont apply to commercial ag use.]

    However, acetic acid, the main ingredient in vinegar also made the list. When Robinson asked Mr. Peter Bergkvist, principal policy advisor at the Swedish Chemicals Agency (known as Kemi) why vinegar was also slated for a ban, he replied this was:

    due to the hazard properties of the substance and the fact that it has been classified as a skin corrosive in category 1A in its pure form.

    Uranium Mining in the Grand Canyon Continues Despite Years of Resistance "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Vic Bishop

    Sad but true, the dramatic opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North Dakota failed to achieve the result of stopping corporate and political powers from proceeding with the pipeline. Less than six months after the camps abandonment, the pipeline is functional and leaks are already being reported.

    Another, less publicized, struggle has been taking place for years around the area of the Grand Canyon, where indigenous rights and environmental activists have been seeking a ban on uranium mining in this part of Americas breathtaking landscape. Beginning in the 1950s when a rush to draw uranium for the first generation of nuclear weapons brought mining operations to this region, opponents recently lost a bid to prohibit the mining and processing of radioactive materials near the iconic Grand Canyon.

    The environmental impact of uranium mining and processing is devastating, as radioactive contamination is common, affecting people as well as wildlife, springs, aquifers, and sacred sites. There are at least 4 mines currently in operation near the canyon, and over 3000 viable claims for potential future mining, and an official Superfund cleanup site near the canyon, signaling the potential for a massive industrial wasteland to develop.

    The US Geological Survey has identified 15 springs in the Grand Canyon with dangerously high uranium levels related to mining processes from past ventures. While the elevated concentrations of uranium in the water may not seriously harm a single thirsty hiker, it can have long-term health effects on those who drink it for decades. It could also threaten wildlife in the Canyon, which contains several endangere...

    You may not have known but may not be surprised to know  that Donald Trump has a coat of arms: a shield featuring three lions surrounding a pair of chevrons, with an outstretched arm above it, holding an arrow at an angle. You may be equally unsurprised to learn that Trumps coat of arms is plagiarized. It was taken from the family that originally built the Florida Mar-a-Lago estate, which the president now owns and calls his winter White House.

    As reported by the New York Times, Trumps coat of arms mimics the one granted by British authorities in 1939 to Joseph Edward Davies, the third husband of Marjorie Merriweather Post, the socialite who built the Mar-a-Lago resort. From the chevrons to the matching diamond shape hanging over the wrist of the disembodied arm, the two emblems are exactly the same but for one small, almost comical update: the text at the bottom has been been changed from Integritas, the Latin word for integrity, to Trump, an English word that has come to mean basically the opposite.

    Apparently, Trump never asked permission to adapt the coat of arms to suit his own purposes, and members of the Davies family have considered, but thus far refrained from, taking legal action. Whats more, because coats of arms are registered in the UK, he was forced to amend the emblem on his golf courses in Scotland. Below are images of a plaque at the Trump National Golf Club outside of Washington, DC (commemorating a Civil War battle that never happened) with the American coat of arms and a sign at Trump International Golf Links Scotland that shows the updated one.

    A World Tour Through a Collection of Paper Architectural Models "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Montmartre with Sacre Coeur in the Kemnitzer Paper Model Collection (courtesy of David A. Kemnitzer, architect; photo by National Building Museum staff)

    WASHINGTON, DC Architect David Kemnitzer spent decades collecting paper models of castles, nuclear power plants, modernist houses, farms, and skyscrapers, starting from his childhood in the 1940s. But he never assembled the 4,500 pieces he donated to the National Building Museum between 2013 and 2016. So before a display of the miniature architecture could be installed, museum staff, architecture students, and volunteers all pitched in to carefully construct color copies of selected models, with the more elaborate examples taking weeks to erect with scissors, glue, and razor blades.

    As curator Sarah Leavitt, who organized Around the World in 80 Paper Modelsexplained to Hyperallergic, the time making the models does give you this connection to the structure youre building. And for some of them, like a paper power plant produced in Scotland, encouraging a familiarity with a new building was the goal of the model. Others celebrate local or distant marvels, as souvenirs or educational toys, or recall a lost past. Leavitts favorite is a black-and-white Paper Shtetl advertised as: A complete model of an East European Jewish town. It features two-dimensional villagers, trees, chickens, and cows to position among thatched-roof homes. A 1984 article in the New York Times described its design by publisher Schocken:

    One may not find everything here. For instance, the mikveh, the communal bath, has not been included nor is the little inn that usually purveyed drinks in the shtetl. But, everything in its time and Schocken is free to do urban redevelopment perhaps in future editions. Meantime, as the creators say, i...

    Russian Lawmaker Issues Sobering Threat: Were Willing To Use Nukes To Defend Crimea "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    nuke-war

    As of late, the media has forgotten about tensions between Ukraine, NATO, and Russia. Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have largely left the publics awareness. However, that shouldnt be the case, because this region is still a powder keg that could blow at any time. And if it does, it could easily result in another world war.

    If you dont think the situation in Ukraine could still explode into a wider conflict, take a look at what this member of Russias parliament recently said at an international security conference.

    On the issue of NATO expansion on our borders, at some point I heard from the Russian military and I think they are right If U.S. forces, NATO forces, are, were, in the Crimea, in eastern Ukraine, Russia is undefendable militarily in case of conflict without using nuclear weapons in the early stage of the conflict, Russian parliamentarian Vyacheslav Alekseyevich Nikonov told attendees at the GLOBSEC 2017 forum in Bratislava, Slovakia.

    Russian military leaders have discussed Moscows willingness to use nuclear weapons in a conflict with military leaders in NATO, as part of broader and increasingly contentious conversations about the alliances expansion, Nikonov later told Defense One.

    Thats a startling admission when you think about it. It seems the Russians believe that if there is a war between Russia and the West, their conventional forces wont be capable of defending Russian soil from NATO. Theyre basically warning us that if you bring a knife to this fight, we know we cant win, so well be bringing a gun.

    And theres a good reason for them to believe that NATO poses a dire threat to their territory and interests.

    For us, [NATO] is a military alliance spanning three-quarters of the global defense money, now planning to expand that figure, said Nikonov.

    In the two years since Russia annexed Crimea, NATOs Baltic members have doubl...

    Vicars wife likes cock, apparently "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    The wife of the vicar in a quiet parish in the Isle of Wight is more than a bit partial to cock, it has emerged among the congregation. Angela Danielson, 39, has been married to the Reverend Keith Danielson for eight years, during which time her appetite for cock has led to the couple enjoying steamy sessions of lovemaking on average 1.5 times per month during the early years.

    Angela is perfect in the role of country vicars wife, commented Edith Patterson, a server at St Michaels Church in Ventor. She keeps an open house for parishioners, settles disputes over flower arranging on Sunday, organises the choir and judges the jam making competition at the annual bazaar with consummate diplomacy.

    And, from what I can gather and if the role permitted it, of course, I have no doubt she would also be a cum-happy bukkake skank with a particular fondness for uncut cock packing at least ten inches. I just hope Keith realises what an asset she is and does his best to satisfy her unquenchable sluttiness.

    With her husband covering five parishes and spending much of his spare time making model aircraft in the shed to deal with his stress problem that inexplicably led him to unlikely friendships among secretive all-male communities in East Cowes, Angela has taken to preaching as well. Parishioners were particularly enraptured by her recent exposition on Ezekiel 16, 28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest not be satisfied.

    Most church ladies were married once, you know, said Patterson. The masterful delivery of that sermon left us in no doubt, either that the conduct of the ancient Israelites in troubled times is a powerful metaphor for the growing decadence of the secular world, or that underneath the sensible shoes and shapeless long dresses there beats a passionate desire for cock. As much and as often as even the tartiest fuck-pig could ever take. From her husband and with a view to children, of course.

    Nurse claims daughter, 13, was left in wheelchair with body of little old lady after suffering reaction to HPV jab

    BY SHANTI DAS
    Mirror.co.uk

    A nurse claims her 13-year-old daughter has been left in a wheelchair after suffering a reaction to the HPV vaccine.

    Anthea Beattie, 49, says Zara is like an 80-year-old in a teenagers body and is convinced her ill health is due to the jab, which protects against cervical cancer .

    The sporty schoolgirl, once a promising footballer and netball player, began struggling for breath in a PE lesson in January last year.

    At first the family dismissed Zaras symptoms as asthma but her health continued to deteriorate in the weeks that followed.

    She suffered palpitations, felt dizzy, weak and tired, and was later diagnosed with PoTS postural tachycardia syndrome which makes her heart race.

    There are so many young girls now who are in the same position. I dont believe it is a coincidence. Zara played football and she was very fit. She was full of life. She was a very active girl with a nice circle of friends.

    Now all that has changed. She has horrendous heart palpitations and horrific pain chest pain, severe headaches and sometimes whole body pain.

    On a bad day the poor girl cant even stand up. She will stay in bed all day and crawl to the toilet. Shes got a stool by the sink for when she cleans her teeth.

    In a typical week she wont leave the house unless its for a hospital appointment. She had to stop going to school because she was absolutely wiped out.

    Fucoxanthin provides neuroprotection in models of traumatic brain injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Apr 21 ;7:46763. Epub 2017 Apr 21. PMID: 28429775 Abstract Title:  Fucoxanthin provides neuroprotection in models of traumatic brain injury via the Nrf2-ARE and Nrf2-autophagy pathways. Abstract:  Fucoxanthin is abundant in seaweed and is considered as a powerful antioxidant. It has been proposed to possess anti-cancer, anti-obesity and anti-diabetes effects. However, its roles in brain injury models have not been fully understood. The objective of this study was to investigate the neuroprotection of fucoxanthin in models of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and the role of the nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2)-antioxidant-response element (ARE) and Nrf2-autophagy pathways in the putative neuroprotection. We found that fucoxanthin alleviated TBI-induced secondary brain injury, including neurological deficits, cerebral edema, brain lesion and neuronal apoptosis. Moreover, the up-regulation of malondialdehyde (MDA) and the activity of glutathione peroxidase (GPx) were reversed by fucoxanthin treatment. Furthermore, our in vitro studies demonstrated that fucoxanthin increased the neuron survival and reduced the reactive oxygen species (ROS) level. In addition, fucoxanthin activated the Nrf2-ARE pathway and autophagy both in vivo and in vitro, which was proven by the results of immunohistochemistry, western blot and electrophoretic mobility shift assay (EMSA). However, fucoxanthin failed to provide neuroprotection and activated autophagy following TBI in Nrf2(-/-) mice. In conclusion, our studies indicated that fucoxanthin provided neuroprotective effects in models of TBI, potentially via regulation of the Nrf2-ARE and Nrf2-autophagy pathways.

    Dutch Bitcoin Exchange BL3P Increases Reach to 34 European Countries "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    Dutch Bitcoin Exchange BL3P Expands to Serve 34 European Countries

    BL3P announced the expansion of their services into the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). This marks a significant extension from their original operation which primarily served residents of the Netherlands. BL3P, a subsidiary of Bitonic, is a bitcoin exchange founded in 2013 that allows users to buy and sell bitcoin using Euros.

    With their expansion complete, BL3Ps aims to grow their user base outside of their Dutch majority through the targeting of new customers in the EU region. Speaking to Bitcoin Magazine Jeroen Rijnbout of BL3P stated, We want to put BL3P on the map as a reliable and user-friendly trading platform for users from the Eurozone. In the long term, BL3P hopes to build its reputation as an exchange that is run by an experienced team and take Bitonic to the international stage.

    The move brings BL3P into the EU marketplace, which is already competitive in the bitcoin space with dozens of exchanges competing for customers. Rijnbout views this competition with optimism stating, We believe it is good to have multiple exchanges to choose from. This enables users to spread their risk, profit from arbitrage and choose a party that they trust. Centralization of the majority of bitcoin trading to one exchange is dangerous, as we have seen in the past. We see it as a healthy development for the ecosystem.

    With their recent expansion, the Dutch company now allows all SEPA countries to buy and sell bitcoin. Their current services offer the ability to use market and limit orders. BL3P charges a fixed trading fee of 0.25 percent on all buy/sell transactions. However, for the next five weeks this transaction fee is discounted by 50 percent as part of Bitonics 5th anniversary celebration.

    BL3P currently offers services that support the bitcoin cryptocurrency, but has stated its plans to expand support to alternative cryptocurrencies in the future. We pay close attention to the developments in altcoins and see great value in some of them as testbeds for future developments on Bitcoin, says Rijnbout.

    We tend to be hesitant in adding new currencies, as we want to ensure an altcoin or token has added value before we add them to our platforms, Rijnbout adds. However, at the same time, we listen to and understand the needs of traders and investors and we want to be able to meet their wishes. For example, Rijnbout suggested that support for Litecoin on their trading platform is of particular interest to BL3P with se...

    What Causes Red Moles on Skin and How to Get Rid of Them "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    Finding a red mole on your body can be a cause for alarm but mostly its nothing to worry about. These red skin growths can occur anywhere on the skin and can have the appearance of bright cherry-red bumps. The red color in these moles usually comes from the cluster of blood vessels that build up near the skins surface. The most common type of red moles is cherry angiomas which are sometimes called Campbell De Morgan spots or senile angiomas. They usually grow on the trunk area and increase in number with age.

    The good news is that red moles are usually harmless growths; however, you should always have any kind of new growth on your skin checked out by a doctor.

    In this article, you will find out about the most common types of red moles and what you can do about them. In general, doctors dont recommend to try and remove red moles by yourself as they need to be checked by a dermatologist first. Dermatologists use a variety of methods to get rid of red moles including freezing them, removing them using laser, or cauterizing them. Many people have successfully removed harmless moles at home using ingredients such as apple cider vinegar (ACV) or food grade hydrogen peroxide and you will find out how to do it towards the end of the article.

    What Are Red Moles?

    Most types of red moles are classed as benign skin growths with the most common being cherry angiomas. According to the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, red moles are formed by dilated blood vessels that form into a growth.1

    Red moles can be of various shapes and sizes. Dr. David Swanson on MedlinePlus says that some red moles can range from the size of a pinhead to about one-quarter of an inch. Depending on the number of blood vessels involved, the head can be smooth or stick out from the skin.2

    Some other types of red moles are called actinic keratosis which are caused by exposure to the suns harmful UV rays and should be monitored more closely.

    Lets look a bit more closely at the various kinds of red skin growths that can appear on your body. We will then look at when red moles need to be removed and how to remove them.

    The Different Types of Red Moles and What Causes Them

    Different types of red moles, red skin tags, and skin growths affect many people. Here are the main types of red moles that can grow on your body.

    Cherry angioma (also known as Campbell De Morgan spot or senile angioma) is a cluster of blood vessels just under the skins surface that can cause red moles. As their name suggests, cherry angiomas...

    13 Things You Should Give Up If You Want To Be Successful "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    Somebody once told me the definition of hell:

    On your last day on earth, the person you became will meet the person you could have become.Anonymous

    Sometimes, to become successful and get closer to the person we can become, we dont need to add more thingswe need to give up on some of them.

    There are certain things that are universal, which will make you successful if you give up on them, even though each one of us could have a different definition of success.

    You can give up on some of them today, while it might take a bit longer to give up on others.

    1. Give Up On The Unhealthy Lifestyle

    Take care of your body. Its the only place you have to live.Jim Rohn

    If you want to achieve anything in life, everything starts here. First you have to take care of your health, and there are only two things you need to keep in mind:

    1. Healthy Diet
    2. Physical Activity

    Small steps, but you will thank yourself one day.

    2. Give Up The Short-term Mindset

    You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. Mae West

    Successful people set long-term goals, and they know these aims are merely the result of short-term habits that they need to do every day.

    These healthy habits shouldnt be something you do; they should be something you embody.

    There is a difference between: Working out to get a summer body and Working out because thats who you are.

    3. Give Up On Playing Small

    Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone, and as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our fear, our presence automatically liberates others. Marianne Williamson

    If you never try and take great opportunities, or allow your dreams to become realities, you will never unleash your true potential.

    And the world will never benefit from what you could have achieved.

    So voice your ideas, dont be afraid to fail, and ce...

    Facing Protests from Islamist Groups, Bangladesh Relocates a Statue of Lady Justice "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    A statue of Lady Justice in Bangladesh is at the center of debate over the countrys commitment towards secularism in the face of pressures from prominent Islamist groups. Commissioned by the Supreme Court in Dhaka, the stainless-steel figure by Bangladeshi artist Mrinal Haque had stood outside the government building for five months before authorities removed it last Friday, as Bangladesh News 24 reported. The move foreboded increased censorship of public art for religious reasons: the decision was a concession to demands by members of Islamist organizations including Hefazat-e-Islam and Olama League, who argued that artworks representing humans amount to idolatry. Critics believe the figure represents the Greek goddess Themis wearing a sari an interpretation Haque has denied.

    Lady Justice, however, emerged to the public just two days later but at a spot 300 yards away from the building, where no one can see it from the street,...

    Governor halts work on coal railway being built without permits in Indonesian Borneo "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    After coming under public scrutiny, Central Kalimantan Governor Sugianto Sabran halted the construction of a railroad being built to transport coal through forested areas of the province. The governor's decision followed a May 21 report by Mongabay's Indonesian sister site, which documented that the developers of the Katingan-Gunung Mas coal railway had cleared forest land and laid roughly two kilometers (1.25 miles) of track despite apparently not having secured all of the necessary permits. Mongabay-Indonesia also observed the presence of excavators, workers and stacks of building material during a field visit to Tewang Karangan Village in the Katingan Regency of Indonesian Borneo's Central Kalimantan Province. The project designed to transport coal 90 kilometers to Katingan from the neighboring Gunung Mas Regency also includes a coal port on the banks of the Katingan River in Tewang Karangan Village. Preliminary construction of the port had also commenced. Residents and environment activists fear the project will divide wildlife habitats and communities, pollute the river, damage local people's livelihoods and spark conflict between local landholders. Given the potential social and environmental impacts, Indonesian law requires project developer PT Sinar Usaha Sejati (SUS) to secure multiple licenses before launching such a project, including an approved Environmental Impact Assessment, a special route permit to cross through more than one regency, and a permit to operate in a forest area.

    Fucoxanthin prevents H2O2-induced neuronal apoptosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Food Nutr Res. 2017 ;61(1):1304678. Epub 2017 Mar 28. PMID: 28469544 Abstract Title:  Fucoxanthin prevents H2O2-induced neuronal apoptosis via concurrently activating the PI3-K/Akt cascade and inhibiting the ERK pathway. Abstract:  Background: As a natural carotenoid abundant in chloroplasts of edible brown algae, fucoxanthin possesses various health benefits, including anti-oxidative activity in particular. Objective: In the present study, we studied whether fucoxanthin protected against hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced neuronal apoptosis. Design: The neuroprotective effects of fucoxanthin on H2O2-induced toxicity were studied in both SH-SY5Y cells and primary cerebellar granule neurons. Results: Fucoxanthin significantly protected against H2O2-induced neuronal apoptosis and intracellular reactive oxygen species. H2O2 treatment led to the reduced activity of phosphoinositide 3-kinase (PI3-K)/Akt cascade and the increased activity of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) pathway in SH-SY5Y cells. Moreover, fucoxanthin significantly restored the altered activities of PI3-K/Akt and ERK pathways induced by H2O2. Both specific inhibitors of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3) and mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase (MEK) significantly protected against H2O2-induced neuronal death. Furthermore, the neuroprotective effects of fucoxanthin against H2O2-induced neuronal death were abolished by specific PI3-K inhibitors. Conclusions: Our data strongly revealedthat fucoxanthin protected against H2O2-induced neurotoxicity via concurrently activating the PI3-K/Akt cascade and inhibiting the ERK pathway, providing support for the use of fucoxanthin to treat neurodegenerative disorders induced by oxidative stress.

    Youd be hard pressed to get further outside the institutional white cube than the Mount Wilson Observatory. Nestled in the San Gabriel Mountains a mile above Los Angeles, the astronomical observatory has been home to several major scientific discoveries in its hundred-plus year history, including the observation of spiral galaxies and the suns magnetic field, as well as the site of Edwin Hubbles groundbreaking research on the Big Bang.

    Organized by artist Christina Ondrus, Knowledges is a two-day event that brings together artists and performers to explore astronomic, scientific, and philosophical themes related to the site and its history. These range from Alice Knitzs obsidian lenses and Channing Hansens knit works that depict magnetic fields, to live performances by spaced-out experimental rocker Sun Araw, keyboardist Money Mark, and others, paired with viewing sessions through the observatorys famous 60-inch and 100-inch telescopes  the latter of which was the worlds largest from 1917 to 1949.

    His photographs have graced album covers, inspired Vogue's famed creative director Grace Coddington, and were even a point of reference for Sophia Coppola while directing The Virgin Suicides. Just what is it about photographer Joseph Szabos images of the teenage experience that strike such a chord?

    The acclaimed photographer, whose work is part of the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MoMA, worked for over 25 years as a teacher at Malverne High School on Long Island. It was here, starting in 1972, that he turned his camera on his students, documenting these pivotal years. Szabo, who had studied photography at the Pratt Institute, used his craft as a coping mechanism to bridge the gap between himself and his students.

    The camera helped me to approach and connect with my students both in and out of class, Szabo writes via email. As I photographed my students I sensed they liked my attention and it made them feel important. So I became more inclusive of all students in my school and established relationships that resulted in trust and respect that many successful teachers have.

    Szabo's photography is a reflection of the teenage experience. He manages to expertly insert himself into their world, capturing the joy, heartbreak, insecurity, and self-confidence that peppers adolescence. In this way, the work is a timeless, compelling visual diary that transcends the era in which it was shot.

    The photographic bond that tied Szabo and his students together has continued throughout the years, with the photographer often hearing from them. I am constantly in touch with my students. They express their feelings and often say how great it was that I photographed them as teenagers, Szabo tells us. One student, Lili, wrote, the purpose of life is to discover your giftthe meaning of life is to give it awaythank you for keeping the memory.

    If they were playing too roughly with each other, and hed hear them cry, hed go and check to see if they were OK." "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    When Tracy Toll brought home four foster kittens a few weeks ago, she wasnt worried about introducing them to her two dogs, Flash and Tasha, or even to her cat, Morgan.

    But she did worry about them meeting Apollo, her newly adopted male cat.

    Credit: Tracy Toll

    He [Apollo] is 5 years old, and hed just been fixed, Toll, a volunteer with the Ontario SPCA (OSPCA), told The Dodo. Being a male cat, I thought he might try and hurt them.

    Tolls fears werent unfounded  unneutered male cats can exhibit aggressive behaviors, although neutering tends to eliminate these behaviors. But in Apollos case, Toll worried it was too soon after his operation for these changes to take effect.

    Apollos former owner had surrendered him to the OSPCA, and it was clear hed been severely neglected, according to Toll.

    His hair almost looked like a turtle shell because it was just so matted, Toll said. He had to be shaved down.

    While volunteering at the shelter, Toll fell in love with Apollos sweet nature, and she decided to adopt him. He managed to fit in fairly well with her other cat and two dogs. But Toll didnt know how hed be around tiny, mischievous kittens.

    So when Toll took the kittens home to temporarily care for them, she decided to play it safe and keep them inside her daughters room for the entire time they stayed with her.

    But Toll couldnt have been any more wrong about Apollo.

    One day my daughter opened her door, and the kittens burst out, and Im like, Grab Apollo, Toll said. But it was too late. The kittens ran up to him, and he didnt hiss and he didnt growl. He just looked at them and was smelling them.

Abstract:  This study investigated the synergistic efficacy of keto-carotenoid astaxanthin (AST, from shrimp) plus hydrocarbon (-carotene, BC) and hydroxyl (lutein, L) carotenoids (from greens) on molecular events in MCF-7 cells. MCF-7 cells were treated with either of carotenoid (20 M, AST or BC or L) separately or the mixture of them (an equimolar concentration of carotenoids mixture, CM) or saponified carotenoid extract from shrimp (SSCE) for 48 h and analyzed cellular uptake, cytotoxicity, and apoptosis. The IC50 and combination-index values of AST co-treatment with a lower concentration of BC and L (5 M) exhibited enhanced cytotoxicity and oxidative stress as compared with individual carotenoids or SSCE.Further, higher cellular uptake/accumulation of AST along with BC and L found to synergistically induce apoptosis through modulation of cyclin D1, p53, Bax and Bcl-2 expressions by arresting cell cycle at G0/G1 phase. Further, CM or SSCE treatments are unlikely to affect proliferation of normal breast epithelial cells (MCF-10A). The results of selective killing of MCF-7 cells demonstrated a greater insight on the synergistic effect of shrimp AST plus BC and L. It is concluded that consumption of shrimp along with green leafy vegetables helps in combating cancer chemoprevention.

    Fucoxanthin inhibits -amyloid assembly and attenuates -amyloid oligomer-induced cognitive impairments. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  J Agric Food Chem. 2017 May 24 ;65(20):4092-4102. Epub 2017 May 11. PMID: 28478680 Abstract Title:  Fucoxanthin Inhibits-Amyloid Assembly and Attenuates -Amyloid Oligomer-Induced Cognitive Impairments. Abstract:  -Amyloid (A) can form aggregates through self-assembly and produce neurotoxicity in the early stage of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Therefore, the inhibition of A assembly is considered as the primary target for AD therapy. In this study, we reported that fucoxanthin, a marine carotenoid, potently reduced the formation of A fibrils and oligomers. Moreover, the fucoxanthin-triggered modification significantly reduced the neurotoxicity of A oligomers in vitro. Molecular dynamics simulation analysis further revealed a hydrophobic interaction between fucoxanthin and A peptide, which mightprevent the conformational transition and self-assembly of A. Most importantly, fucoxanthin could attenuate cognitive impairments in A oligomer-injected mice. In addition, fucoxanthin significantly inhibited oxidative stress, enhanced the expression of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, and increased ChAT-positive regions in the hippocampus of mice. On the basis of these novel findings, we anticipated that fucoxanthin might ameliorate AD via inhibiting A assembly and attenuating A neurotoxicity.

    Against the duality of man "IndyWatch Feed Education"

    Hundreds of years removed as we may be from Hobbes musing on the unity of man, that we are not so much body and soul as we are one, Unified being; there is still an appeal to duality.
    Body and soul
    good and evil
    right and wrong

    We look at these concepts as being separate from us, as if it is not only possible to lead a good life but there is some agreed upon moral arbitrator of what is good and evil. Owen suggested in 1816 that The history of man informed me that innumerable attempts had been made, through every age, to lessen these evils; and experience convinced me that the present generation, stimulated by an accession of knowledge derived from past times, was eagerly engaged in the same pursuit and you know what fair enough good for him and good for the world, sometimes our belief that there is an evil to be conquered can spur us to be more than we are, it can spur mankind to such great heights.

    However there is a kind of duality that bothers me deeply, the idea that there is definable and universal good and bad in everyone one, that this duality, stands not in a historical and social context but it is universal.
    We are not wholly virtuous or purely sinners, we are made of a duality. We have a light and a dark side. Buzwell explores this in relation to Jekyll and Hyde Throughout the story, respectability is doubled with degradation; abandon with restraint; honesty with duplicity.

    There is a strong draw to this concept, we can clearly see that people are not wholly one thing or another, and we can also see such good acts contrasted by darker acts. So im not saying there is not a contrast between these concepts, or that as a human  I am not capable of falling short of my own moral goals, but I would argue that this is defined by my own sense of morals and ethics. Things that I have learnt, absorbed and crafted; its not inherent to my nature as a person. So its not an issue of an inherent duality of man, it is a result of a complex set of inputs from birth to now.

    Jung argues eloquently for examining and addressing our own inner darkness Unfortunately there can be no doubt that man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individuals conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. If an inferiority is conscious, one always has a chance to correct it. Furthermore, it is constantly in contact with other interests, so that it is continually subjected to modifications. But if it is repressed and isolated from consciousness, it never gets corrected. This can almost be a call to action, for self reflection, there is so much of value to be found in Jungs call to cast out our inner shadows by acknowledging its existence, however to often the duality of man is used in a different way,

    A Voice of Reason Speaks Regarding The New Cold War "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    Last week was interesting for me. I spent about half my time getting up to speed with the latest happenings in the crypto-coin world, and got really excited about a lot of what I saw. In fact, this was the first time I became totally consumed by the space in several years, going back to when I first investigated and started becoming involved with Bitcoin.

    What really caught my attention is the booming ICO market, and while itll invariably produce its fair share of total scams, I find it nonetheless captivating. Im attracted to its dynamic wild west spirit, as well as its capacity to function as an alternative funding mechanism for startup projects utilizing a wider participatory structure consisting of anyone with a bit of crypto currency and a high-risk tolerance. Its an entirely new experimental ecosystem funded by crypto currencies (mostly ethereum, but also bitcoin). Its pretty mesmerizing (for more see: A New Financial System is Being Born).

    Spending so much time on this esoteric world kept me away from following U.S. politics as closely as I typically do, which was a great thing. The level of discourse from nearly all sides of the political spectrum has turned so toxic, divisive, hysterical and counterproductive, leaving that environment for several days made me feel great, as if I had taken a vacation from idiot island. As such, today I once again decided to spend some time reading up on the crypto-coin space and getting further up to speed on ICOs and how they work. That said, I realize I still need to pay attention to the crazy happenings in the wider world around me, so I thought Id share an interview with a rarity in todays political discourse, a voice of reason.

    PMID:  Phytomedicine. 2012 Aug 15 ;19(11):977-87. Epub 2012 Jul 4. PMID: 22770743 Abstract Title:  Carotenoids reverse multidrug resistance in cancer cells by interfering with ABC-transporters. Abstract:  Proteins of the ATP-binding cassette superfamily, mainly P-glycoprotein (P-gp; MDR1), play an important role in the development of multidrug resistance (MDR) in cancer cells and thus in the potential failure of chemotherapy. A selection of carotenoids (-carotene, crocin, retinoic acid, canthaxanthin, and fucoxanthin) was investigated whether they are substrates of P-gp, and if they can reverse MDR in resistant Caco-2 and CEM/ADR5000 cells as compared to the sensitive parent cell line CCRF-CEM. The activity of ABC transporter was determined in resistant and sensitive cells by spectrofluorometry and flow cytometry using the substrates doxorubicin, rhodamine 123, and calcein as fluorescent probes. The carotenoids increased accumulation of these P-gp substrates in a dose-dependent manner indicating that they themselves also function as substrates. Fucoxanthin and canthaxanthin (50-100 M) produced a 3-5-fold higher retention of the fluorescent probes than the known competitive inhibitor verapamil. Carotenoids showed a low cytotoxicity in cells with MDR with IC(50) values between 100 and 200 M. The combination of carotenoids with eightstructurally different cytotoxic agents synergistically enhanced their cytotoxicity in Caco-2 cells, probably by inhibiting the function of the ABC transporters. For example, fucoxanthin synergistically enhanced the cytotoxicity of 5-FU 53.37-fold, of vinblastine 51.01-fold, and of etoposide 12.47-fold. RT-PCR was applied to evaluate the mRNA levels of P-gp in Caco-2 cells after treatment with carotenoids. Fucoxanthin and canthaxanthin significantly decreased P-gp levels to 12% and 24%, respectively as compared to untreated control levels (p

    Bernie Sanders donors file $300 million class action suit against DNC alleging they defrauded the Sanders campaign. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    Here's a Strange Political Story That Has Nothing to Do with Trump

    Of all the weird sideshows in American politics, the one unfolding in a Florida courtroom may be one of the strangest. Largely uncovered by anything resembling the elite political media, a passel of disgruntled Bernie Sanders donors has filed a $300 million class action suit against the Democratic National Committee for $300 million alleging that the DNC defrauded them by rigging the primary process against the Sanders campaign. From Newsweek:

    Jared Beck, a Harvard Law graduate and one of the several attorneys who filed the suit against the DNC and its former chairperson Debbie Wasserman Schultz, wants retribution for donations made by supporters to the Vermont senator's campaign, citing six legal claims of the DNC's deceptive conduct, negligent misrepresentation and fraud. The DNC violated Article 5, Section 4 of its own charter by working with a single campaign to effectively choose who would win the Democratic ballot, the attorneys stated in the suit.

    All the usual complaints are rolled into this suitthe leaked-debate-questions gripe, the donor-info insecurity, and the villain of the piece is Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

    The Most Effective and Safe Stroke Damage Control Drug May Be CBD or Cannabidiol

    by Paul Fassa
    Health Impact News

    People who do survive strokes are often encumbered with neurological issues that can be very debilitating and without quality of life. The rehabilitation methods for stroke victims under mainstream medical care are long and arduous, often with very little improvement.

    Now a potential cannabis solution has been discovered with a study published in April of 2017.

    The cannabis solution does not involve THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) the psychoactive compound. Instead, the chemical solution for neurological damage in the aftermath of cerebral ischemia is CBD or cannabidiol, which is a major cannabinoid among at least 85 cannabinoids found in cannabis.

    It does not offer the high, and cannabis or marijuana plants can be hybrid to negate THC, the other major cannabinoid, while enhancing CBD.

    Better yet, industrial hemp can be imported and CBD can be extracted from industrial hemp. Industrial hemp import products are legal in the United States. If youve visited health food stores or supermarkets with supplement sections, you may have noticed hemp seeds, for example. There are even hemp clothing and building materials also available.

    Hemp seeds are densely nutritious and their omega 6 and omega 3 fatty acids are in perfect balance. Its a superfood by definition. They are imported from nations that allow industrial hemp agriculture. Among those are Canada, China, and some European nations.

    Arizona Officially Rejects Rothschild: Legalizes Gold & Silver As Currency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    Source: Neon Nettle

    In a huge blow to the Rothschild-controlled Federal Reserve, Arizona has just passed a new bill to law making gold and silver legal tender.

    Since the Great Depression, states across the US have made owning the precious metals either illegal or stigmatized, but this move looks to pave the way in fighting the increasing national debt.

    Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have seen huge gains over the last few years, with gold and silver prices falling, but experts are hoping this new change in legislation could see the metals rival digital currencies if more states follow suit.

    Antimedia reports: In anticipation of the growing problems with the national debt, individual states across the country are seizing the opportunity to protect themselves and their citizens from financial repression.
    Twenty states have already eliminated sales taxes on precious metals transactions, but some are taking it even further.

    The most recent bill was H.B. 2014 in Arizona, which classifies U.S.-minted coins as a form of currency and even eliminates capital gains taxes on qualified precious metals.

    These kinds of simple actions directly threaten the power of the U.S. Federal Reserve, and any competition to the U.S. dollar undermines the central banks longstanding monopoly.

    Representatives in Arizona worked on this legislation for years, and thanks to the support of people like Ron Paul, there was enough pressure on the governor to sign it into law.

    Dr. Paul explained why this bill is so crucial for the future:

    HB 2014 is a very important and timely piece of legislation. The Federal Reserves failure to reignite the economy with record-low interest rates since the last crash is a sign that we may soon see the dollars collapse. It is therefore imperative that the law protects peoples right to use alternatives to what may soon be virtually...

    Beta-carotene at physiologically attainable concentration induces apoptosis in human breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Mol Cell Biochem. 2017 May 26. Epub 2017 May 26. PMID: 28550445 Abstract Title:  -carotene at physiologically attainable concentration induces apoptosis and down-regulates cell survival and antioxidant markers in human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells. Abstract:  Although-carotene is known for its anti-carcinogenic and antioxidant properties, a few recent epidemiological and experimental evidence show that at higher concentration it acts as pro-oxidant and induces cancer. Since the global burden of breast cancer exceeds all other types of cancer, and its incidencerates is also in increasing trend, the present study attempted to evaluate the anti-cancer molecular mechanism of -carotene (at 1 M concentration) isolated from Spinacia oleracea in human breast cancer (MCF-7) cells. The carotenoid was purified by open column chromatography and identified by LC-MS. The anti-proliferative effect of -carotene at different concentrations was evaluated by WST-1 assay and the changes in cell morphology were examined by microscopic observation. The induction of apoptosis by -carotene was observed by DAPI staining and colorimetric caspase-3 assay. The expression of cell survival, apoptotic, and antioxidant marker proteins was measured by western blot analysis. Purified -carotene inhibited the viability of MCF-7 cells in a dose-dependent manner, which was well correlated with changes in cell morphology. Increased apoptotic cells were observed in -carotene (1 M)-treated cells. This apoptosis induction was associated with increased caspase-3 activity. The protein expression studies showed that -carotene at 1 M concentration effectively decreases the expression of the anti-apoptotic protein, Bcl-2 and PARP, and survival protein, NF-kB. It also inhibited the activation of intracellular growth signaling proteins, Akt and ERK1/2. The inhibition of Akt activation by -carotene results in decreased phosphorylation of Bad. Further, it down-regulated antioxidant enzyme, SOD-2, and its transactivation factor (Nrf-2), and endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress marker, XBP-1, at protein levels. These findings exhibit the key role of -carotene even at a low physiological concentration in MCF-7 cells which further explains its predominant anti-cancer activity.

    Witness the Third Golden Age of Philippine Cinema at the Museum of Modern Art "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Motherland (2017.), Phillipines, directed by Ramona Diaz (image courtesy CineDiaz and the Museum of Modern Art)

    From June 1 to 25, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is screening Philippine movies made from 2000 to the present. This time frame marks a surge in independent movie-making in the country and is now called the Third Golden Age of Philippine cinema.

    The Philippines has a rich history of local cinema, though its only recently begun to travel abroad. The industry saw a surge in the 1950s and then again from the 70s to the 80s (each respectively known as the first and second golden ages), but by 2000 production had waned to around 50 movies a year.

    The 18 movies screening at MoMA show renewed commitment to a range of genres, from documentary to thrillers to historical fiction. There are both established and lesser-known names among the 13 directors featured in the series. The revered Brillante Mendoza is screening Serbis (Service) (2008), which takes place at an Art Deco movie theater named Family that screens porn. Another classic is Raya MartinIndependencia (2009), a story set in the early 20th century that poetically reflects on the Philippines own struggle with independence. Im personally interested in seeing Ramona S. DiazMotherland (2017), a documentary that follows the community of patients at the Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Metro Manila, where poor pregnant women can receive professional care.

    Last Real Indians, May 28, 2017

    TAHOLAH, WA The Quinault Indian Nation is responding to an apparent hate crime attack on two Quinault tribal members this weekend that killed one and seriously injured another.

    What Really Happened at Donkey Creek

    TAHOLAH, WA (5/28/17)- Information regarding the actions of two young Quinault tribal members at Donkey Creek near the Humptulips Campground early Saturday morning has been erroneous, according to witnesses. According to witnesses, the two were injured when the driver of a monster pickup truck purposely ran over them.

    The victims were James Jimmy Kramer, 20, of Taholah and Harvey Anderson, 19, of Aberdeen. The driver of the truck, described as a Caucasian in his mid-30s driving a truck described by witnesses as a mid-1990s Chevy with an extended cab and large tires, had been doing doughnuts at the site when the two Quinaults and other campers tried to make him stop. The driver was screaming racial slurs and war whoops when he ran over the two tribal members. A woman passenger in the truck, also described as a Caucasian in her 30s was screaming at the driver trying to make him stop.

    Earlier reports by the media said the two had thrown rocks as the suspects truck. That is inaccurate...

    Here Are Some Of The Top 6 AK-47s For Under $800.00 "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    If you are in the market for a great reliable civilian AK-style rifle, in most cases, you just cant go wrong. The AK-47 is one of the more manufactured assault rifles in the world. They were made to be virtually indestructible, so picking-up one of these rifles (semi-auto of course) at a good price is always a safe bet.

    If you want a rifle that wont let you down when you need it the most, then an AK pattern rifle is one that I would heartily recommend. Price is not always a true judge of quality, but most quality AKs will be at least $750 to $800.00. The old phrase you get what you pay for is true here. You cannot cut corners and have a first-class firearm. However, fear not because you can get a quality AK pattern rifle at a reasonable price.

    China's Interest and Investment in Ethereum's Blockchain Expands "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    China's Interest and Investment in Ethereum's Blockchain Expands

    When we first heard Vitalik Buterin was learning Chinese, it was a clue to his ambitions in China. Less than two years later, the platform he co-founded is now a growing force in the Middle Kingdom. Since he joined the ChinaLedger Alliance (May 2016) and announced the expansion of BlockApps, an Ethereum building-blocks platform, in China (September 2016), there has been a movement in cities and among companies in big industries all throughout China. This is in some part due to the efforts of Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, which has made it their mission in China to bring Ethereum to the mainstream, and also in part to the savvy and persistent efforts of Buterin himself.

    At a recent Ethereum meetup in Hong Kong, Buterin said that Wanxiang Blockchain Labs are making good inroads into China. Headquartered in Hangzhou, Wanxiang has led the Ethereum charge in China for more than a year. Having partnered with Ethereum early on for the Global Blockchain Summit following Devcon2 in Shanghai in July of 2016, Wanxiang is now Chinas top funder of promising blockchain projects.

    With its BlockGrantX sponsorship program, it has allocated funds to Ethereum startups including iEx.ec (for fully distributed cloud computing), Proof-of-Identity (for KYC, wallets, multisig, voting, authentication and reputation systems), Golem (P2P computation), Casper (a proof-of-stake consensus protocol), the Raiden Network (an Ethereum off-chain state network) and Micro Oracles (blockchain identity verification). And this month, Wanxiang launched its WanCloud platform for Chinese developers, giving them access to tools for building applications on open-source blockchains.

    Since the recent Global Blockchain Financial Summit in Hangzhou, Chinas rapid technological developments on the Ethereum platform has been garnering attention. One blog post in particular, from ConsenSyss Head of Global Business Development Andrew Keys, gave some insight into the rapid rate of Chinese adoption. Highlights of the post, titled Ethereum Growing Exponentially in China, include:

    An administrative court in Italy voided the appointments of five museum directors on May 24, striking a startling blow to the countrys ambitious 2015 initiative to open competition for top cultural posts to citizens of other European countries. Its unclear how permanent the firings will be, as Italys Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism plans to appeal the decision handed down by the regional administrative tribunal for Lazio, the Associated Press reported. In the meantime, the ministry has named interim directors to manage the five affected institutions.

    The courts ruling was spurred by a complaint filed by two Italian candidates for the positions, according to the Telegraph. It found that the recruitment processes had not been sufficiently transparent and that, per the terms of an Italian law from 2001, foreigners were not actually eligible for the positions, according to the...

    Beta-carotene may be considered as a chemo-sensitizer and regarded as an adjuvant therapy in multidrug resistance cancer treatment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Phytomedicine. 2016 Mar 15 ;23(3):316-23. Epub 2016 Feb 6. PMID: 26969385 Abstract Title:  -carotene reverses multidrug resistant cancer cells by selectively modulating human P-glycoprotein function. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: The issue of multidrug resistance (MDR) cancer is one of the major barriers to successful chemotherapy treatment. The ATP-binding cassette (ABC) efflux transporters play an important role in the chemotherapeutic failure. Several generations of ABC efflux transporter inhibitors have been developed, however, none of them could provide better clinical outcome due to systemic toxicities and significant drug-drug interactions. Therefore, the present study focused on identifying the effect of the natural carotenoid on ABC transporters and may provide a safer choice to defeat MDR cancer.PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the inhibitory potency of-carotene on the ABC efflux transporters, as well as the reversal effect of -carotene toward MDR cancers. The underlying molecular mechanisms and inhibitory kinetics of -carotene on the major ABC efflux transporter, P-glycoprotein, were further investigated.METHODS: The human P-gp (ABCB1/Flp-In(TM)-293), MRP1 (ABCC1/Flp-In(TM)-293) and BCRP (ABCG2/Flp-In(TM)-293) stable expression cells were established by using the Flp-In(TM) system. The cytotoxicity of-carotene was evaluated by MTT assay in the established cell lines, sensitive cancer cell lines (HeLaS3 and NCI-H460) and resistant cancer cell lines (KB-vin and NCI-H460/MX20). Surface protein detection assay and eFluxx-ID Green Dye assay were applied for confirmation of surface expression and function of the transporters. The transporter inhibition potency of -carotene was evaluated by calcein-AM uptake assay and mitoxantrone accumulation assay. Further interaction kinetics between -carotene and P-gp were analyzed by rhodamine123 and doxorubicin efflux assay. The influence of -carotene on ATPase activity was evaluated by Pgp-Glo(TM) Assay System.RESULTS: Among the tested ABC efflux transporters,-carotene significantly inhibited human P-gp efflux function without altering ABCB1 mRNA expression. Furthermore, -carotene stimulated both P-gp basal ATPase activity and the verapamil-stimulated P-gp ATPase activity. In addition, -carotene exerted partially inhibitory effect on BCRP efflux function. The combination of -carotene and chemotherapeutic agents significantly potentiated their cytotoxicity in both cell stably expressed human P-gp (ABCB1/Flp-In(TM)-293) and MDR cancer cells (KB-vin and NCI-H460/MX20).CONCLUSION: The present study indicated that-carotene may be considered as a chemo-sensitizer and regarded as an adjuvant therapy in MDR cancer treatment.

    Artist Uses Fire and Smoke to Create Incredible Paintings of Birds "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Steven Spazuk fire painting fumage

    For the past 16 years, artist Steven Spazuk has been honing the craft of painting with fire. The fire artist uses the resulting soot from flames to produce haunting, delicate work. By trailing his tools over the remnants of a flame, he almost sculpts his subjects on the canvas in a technique called fumage.

    Spazuk is quick to point out that he didn't invent the techniqueit's most likely how pre-historic man created cave paintings. But something about his work has captured the public's imagination, as he finds the perfect balance between unique execution and memorable, finished product. Recently, he began working with Zippo as a sponsored artist, where in an interview he explains that the idea first came to him in a dream. After dreaming of seeing a work in a gallery created by fire, he took the idea and set to work, developing fumage into his characteristic signature.

    His newest set of work, which was recently on show at Boston's Adelson Galleries, continues his exploration into the fragility of our world. Mainly focusing on imagery of birdsthe delicate nature of their wings and feathers mirrored by the wispy plumes of smoke that trail behind themSpazuk's creations invite viewers to step into his ephemeral, fantasy world.

    Fire consumes, warms, and illuminates, he explains, but can also bring pain and death; thus, its symbolic meaning varies wildly, depending upon the context of its use. I mostly use it to talk about life's fragility. Exploring this fragility is the very essence of my work as a fire artist.

    Spazuk specializes in a technique called fumage, where he uses fire and soot combined with acrylics to create his artwork.

    How Colorization Experts Breathe New Colors Into Old B&W Photos "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    Weve shared some impressive work by photo colorizers who use Photoshop skills and hard work to add realistic colors into historical monochrome photos. If youre wondering how its done, check out this 7-minute video by Vox that discusses the process. (Note: theres a bit of strong language.)

    As professional colorization expert Jordan Lloyd of Dynamichrome says in the video, its a s**tload of work. Colorizers often do extensive research into the historical background of things seen in photos to get the colors right. Whats more, colorizers need to carefully consider how the light in a scene affects the resulting appearance as well, since different types of light and light bouncing off different materials will drastically affect how the eye perceives things.

    Photo colorization artists use a combination of research, physics, and technology to digitally reconstruct historys black and white record, Vox says. So, yes, Photoshop skills will come in handy, but thats only the first step if youd like to become adept at accurately colorizing B&W photos.

    Portland Mayor Refuses To Give Permit For Free Speech Rally: Stay Away From Portland "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    ted-wheeler

    On Friday, two men were stabbed to death on a train in Portland. Their lives were ended at the hands of a man who was yelling at two young girls who appeared to be Muslim. The appropriate response to these kinds of events, is to condemn the attack and mourn the victims, before moving on with our lives.

    But the mayor of Portland has responded by calling for a pro-Trump free speech rally to be canceled.

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has asked the federal government to revoke a permit for what he described as an alt-right demonstration planned Sunday at Terry Schrunk Plaza across from City Hall.

    Wheeler also said the city will not issue permits for such events, and appealed to the organizers to cancel them. He asked the federal government not to issue a permit for a second event, an anti-Muslim march planned for June 10th.

    Our city is in mourning, our communitys anger is real, and the timing and subject of these events can only exacerbate an already difficult situation, Wheeler wrote on Facebook, referring to the stabbing attack on a MAX train Friday that left two men dead and a third wounded. I urge them to ask their supporters to stay away from Portland.

    This is so typical of the Left these days. Whether its gun control or free speech, they use every tragedy as an excuse to stifle our rights. And not only do they not respect our rights, they have a very misguided view on where our rights come from. Thats certainly the case with Mayor Wheeler.

    PMID:  Anticancer Res. 2017 03 ;37(3):1191-1196. PMID: 28314281 Abstract Title:  Chemosensitizing Properties of-Caryophyllene and -Caryophyllene Oxide in Combination with Doxorubicin in Human Cancer Cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND/AIM: The natural sesquiterpenes-caryophyllene (CRY) and -caryophyllene oxide (CRYO) were evaluated for their potential chemosensitizing properties.MATERIALS AND METHODS: CRY and CRYO cytotoxicity was tested against the Caco-2, CCRF/CEM and CEM/ADR5000 human cancer cell lines. Furthermore, combination experiments were carried out in order to study the ability of the sesquiterpenes to increase doxorubicin cytotoxicity. The possible interference of CRY and CRYO with functionality of ATP-binding cassette (ABC)-transporters was also investigated by Rhodamine123 efflux assay.RESULTS: Despite a low cytotoxicity, both substances were able to enhance the cytotoxicity of doxorubicin in all cell lines, with CRYO being the most effective reversal agent. Both sesquiterpenes were also able to increase the Rho123 content into cells, likely due to inhibition of the efflux pumps.CONCLUSION: Our results highlight a potential role of CRY and CRYO as new chemosensitizing agents for doxorubicin chemotherapy and to re-sensitize cancer-resistant cells.

    Why do so few people major in computer science? "IndyWatch Feed Education"

    Hong Kong-based technology writer Dan Wang wrote a blog post exploring why so few people get degrees in computer science. And yesits far fewer people than those who study other science and engineering fields.

    Here are the most common explanations for this phenomenon, and why he finds them to be insufficient:

    1. Computer science is hard. But it isnt necessarily harder than other science and engineering fields, many of which are surging in popularity.
    2. You dont need a CS degree to be a developer. But it certainly helps you get your foot in the door at big tech companiesmore so than other majors.
    3. People arent so market-driven when theyre considering majors. But theres evidence that people increasingly go into fields that are growing, like healthcare. So this also doesnt fully explain why more people arent majoring in CS.

    He goes on to explore a total of 11 possible contributing factors. But no single one of these factors fully explains why so few people study computer science, even when there are so many high-paying, high-prestige developer jobs out there.

    Anyway, if youre currently in university, or planning to start soon, I strongly recommend majoring in computer science.

    Programming really is where most of the new jobs are, and this trend will accelerate as more and more work is done by machines.

    PMID:  J Psychopharmacol. 1993 Jan ;7(1 Suppl):82-8. PMID: 22290374 Abstract Title:  Effects of ipsapirone and cannabidiol on human experimental anxiety. Abstract:  The effects of ipsapirone and cannabidiol (CBD) on healthy volunteers submitted to a simulated public speaking (SPS) test were compared with those of the anxiolytic benzodiazepine diazepam and placebo. Four independent groups of 10 subjects received, under a double-blind design, placebo or one of the following drugs: CBD (300 mg), diazepam (10 mg) or ipsapirone (5 mg). Subjective anxiety was evaluated through the Visual Analogue Mood Scale (VAMS) and the State-trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI). The VAMS anxiety factor showed that ipsapirone attenuated SPS-induced anxiety while CBD decreased anxiety after the SPS test. Diazepam, on the other hand, was anxiolytic before and after the SPS test, but had no effect on the increase in anxiety induced by the speech test. Only ipsapirone attenuated the increase in systolic blood pressure induced by the test. Significant sedative effects were only observed with diazepam. The results suggest that ipsapirone and CBD have anxiolytic properties in human volunteers submitted to a stressful situation.

    Port Orchard might ditch second-class city status; Port Angeles considers adopting it "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PORT ANGELES Port Orchard residents are close to taking away their city as an example held up by Port Angeles fluoridation opponents who want to change Port Angeles from a municipal-code city to a second-class city and re-elect an entirely new City Council early next year.

    The Port Orchard City Council is heading in the other direction, unanimously voting March 28 to change the citys classification from second-class to code status.

    Port Orchard residents have until June 26 to file a petition to put the matter to voters.

    With about 30 days left, Port Orchard city officials have yet to receive such a petition, City Council member Bek Ashby said Monday.

    Ashby said there was no public opposition to the change in a town hall meeting and hearing.

    In addition, an online survey showed support for the switch, she said.

    Eighty percent of 148 Port Orchard residents who responded out of more than 13,000 residents favored becoming a code city.

    In the same survey, 59 percent said the council should make the decision, while 41 percent said voters should decide.

    Bek said one argument against voting was that an election would have cost the city $12,000-$15,000.

    She said participation in Port Orchards online survey is in keeping with a general lack of participation in such surveys.

    It sounds to me like a significant sample, she said.

    It tells me that people werent that concerned about it.

    Port Angeles is going against that grain.

    It would be the first city in state history to go from code-city status to second-class city under a proposal organized by the anti-fluoridation group Our Water, Our Choice!, which proposed the change in order to elect a full new city council, according its ballot petition, which received overwhelming support.

    In municipal-code cities, residents have home-rule powers, such as putting together voter-inspired initiatives that in some cases grant additional powers to cities.

    In second-class cities, residents have only those powers explicitly or implicitly granted under state law and cannot hold initiatives and referendums.

    Under the code, cities may take any action on matters of local concern so long as that action is neither prohibited by the state constitution nor in conflict with the state general law, according to the Municipal Research and Services Centers Code City Handbook (http://tinyurl.com/PDN-CodeCity).

    Cannabidiol has a pharmacological profile which is compatible with that of an atypical antipsychotic agent. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Psychopharmacology (Berl). 1991 ;104(2):260-4. PMID: 1678894 Abstract Title:  Effects of cannabidiol in animal models predictive of antipsychotic activity. Abstract:  The effects of cannabidiol (CBD) were compared to those produced by haloperidol in rats submitted to experimental models predictive of antipsychotic activity. Several doses of CBD (15-480 mg/kg) and haloperidol (0.062-1.0 mg/kg) were tested in each model. First, CBD increased the effective doses 50% (or) ED50 of apomorphine for induction of the sniffing and biting stereotyped behaviors. In addition, both CBD and haloperidol reduced the occurrence of stereotyped biting induced by apomorphine (6.4 mg/kg), increased plasma prolactin levels and produced palpebral ptosis, as compared to control solutions. However, CBD did not induce catalepsy even at the highest doses, in contrast to haloperidol. Such a pharmacological profile is compatible with that of an"atypical"antipsychotic agent, though the mechanism of action is uncertain and may not be identical to that of the dopamine antagonists.

    The Essential Phone Has Dual Cameras, 4K, and a Dedicated B&W Sensor "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    Android co-founder Andy Rubin and his new startup company, Essential Products, just launched its first product: a powerful smartphone called the Essential Phone. Its photo-related features include dual 13MP cameras, 4K video, and a dedicated monochrome sensor for true black-and-white photography.

    Essential Products is a new type of company focused on creating consumer technology products for the 21st century, the Palo Alto-based startups website says.

    The Essential Phone is a sleek titanium device that measures 141.571.17.8mm and weighs just 185 grams. It features an edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass 25601312 QHD 5.71-inch display that extends above the front-facing camera.

    That camera features an 8MP sensor with a 16:9 aspect ratio behind an f/2.2 aperture lens. It can shoot video at 4K at 30fps, 1080p at 60fps, and 720p at 120fps.

    On the back of the camera is where the real photo fun begins. There youll find the worlds thinnest dual camera system on any phone: a 13-megapixel pair of cameras one with an RGB color sensor and one with a Monochrome sensor that utilize image fusion technology.

    It uses both color and monochrome sensors that can capture up to 200% more light than traditional phone cameras, Essential Products claims. This results in stunning images that are rich in color and detail, even in low light.

    Cannabidiol reduced cerebral infarction possibly through diminishing TNFR1/NF-B-induced neurotoxicity in transient focal cerebral ischemia. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Basic Clin Neurosci. 2017 Mar-Apr;8(2):139-146. PMID: 28539998 Abstract Title:  Correlation Between Cannabidiol-Induced Reduction of Infarct Volume and Inflammatory Factors Expression in Ischemic Stroke Model. Abstract:  INTRODUCTION: Recent studies demonstrated that cannabidiol had neuroprotective property. There is some evidence about effective role of cannabidiol in reduction of ischemic damages. It has been reported that infarct size is influenced by various factors after MCAO, including inflammatory factors. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of cannabidiol on infarction volume and correlation of infarct size with tumor necrosis factor receptor 1 (TNFR1), and nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-B) expression.METHODS: Using stereotaxic surgery, guide cannula was implanted in the right lateral ventricle. Cannabidiol (50, 100, and 200 ng/rat) was injected through ntracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) route for 5 consecutive days . Then, the rats underwent 60 minutes of right middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO). After 24 h reperfusion, the infarct volume in total, cortex, piriform cortex-amygdala (Pir-Amy), and striatum areas of hemisphere were assessed. The expression of inflammatory factors such as TNFR1 and NF-B in these regions were also studied.RESULTS: The present results indicate that in the MCAO-induced cerebral ischemia, administration of cannabidiol (100 and 200 ng/rat) causes a significant reduction in infarction volume in comparison with the vehicle group. Also, there were significant correlations between decrease of regional infarct volume and TNFR1/NF-B expression.CONCLUSION: The results of this study indicate that cannabidiol reduced cerebral infarction possibly through diminishing TNFR1/NF-B-induced neurotoxicity in transient focal cerebral ischemia.

    It's been two years and no one has stopped to ask about him. "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    When Fig Newton was born, he was an insanely tiny, very special little puppy. At 4 weeks old, he weighed only a pound. The breeder he was born to decided he didnt want him due to his cleft palate, a birth defect where the mouth does not form properly. 

    Poor Fig Newton was unwanted from the very beginning, but luckily, a rescue stepped up to take him and try to give him the life he deserved. 

    Credit: Fred's Friends

    Fig Newton was rescued by Freds Friends, a rescue in California that specializes in special needs puppies and kittens. From the moment he was rescued, Fig Newton was an incredibly difficult puppy to handle. He was very sick when he first arrived, and as time went on, his behavioral issues and anxieties began to come out in full force. The rescues staffers knew they had their work cut out for them with this puppy, but luckily, they had no intentions of giving up. 

    Now, more than two years after he was rescued, Fig Newton is almost 3 years old and has made incredible strides. He is a much more confident, playful dog than he was when he first arrived at the rescue, and hes more than ready to find his forever home but unfortunately, Fig Newton has had absolutely no interest from prospective adopters during his time with the rescue. 

    Credit: Fred's Friends

    Despite his differences, Fig Newtown is an incredibly sweet dog, and would make a wonderful addition to any loving family. Everyone who knows Fig Newton is baffled as to why he hasnt found a home yet, and is rooting for him now more than ever. 

    He is a sweet, active boy who loves snuggling with his person, Rachele Keech, executive director and founder of Freds Friends, told The Dodo. Hes the most loyal boy around. He LOVES toys! Anything related to him chasing a toy is his favorite thing to do. He also loves playing with stable/role model type dogs in play group.

    The anxiolytic effect of Cannabidiol has a U shaped dose response curve. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    PMID:  Front Pharmacol. 2017 ;8:259. Epub 2017 May 11. PMID: 28553229 Abstract Title:  Inverted U-Shaped Dose-Response Curve of the Anxiolytic Effect of Cannabidiol during Public Speaking in Real Life. Abstract:  The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the anxiolytic effect of cannabidiol (CBD) in humans follows the same pattern of an inverted U-shaped dose-effect curve observed in many animal studies. Sixty healthy subjects of both sexes aged between 18 and 35 years were randomly assigned to five groups that received placebo, clonazepam (1 mg), and CBD (100, 300, and 900 mg). The subjects were underwent a test of public speaking in a real situation (TPSRS) where each subject had to speak in front of a group formed by the remaining participants. Each subject completed the anxiety and sedation factors of the Visual Analog Mood Scale and had their blood pressure and heart rate recorded. These measures were obtained in five experimental sessions with 12 volunteers each. Each session had four steps at the following times (minutes) after administration of the drug/placebo, as time 0: -5 (baseline), 80 (pre-test), 153 (speech), and 216 (post-speech). Repeated-measures analyses of variance showed that the TPSRS increased the subjective measures of anxiety, heart rate, and blood pressure. Student-Newman-Keuls test comparisons among the groups in each phase showed significant attenuation in anxiety scores relative to the placebo group in the group treated with clonazepam during the speech phase, and in the clonazepam and CBD 300 mg groups in the post-speech phase. Clonazepam was more sedative than CBD 300 and 900 mg and induced a smaller increase in systolic and diastolic blood pressure than CBD 300 mg. The results confirmed that the acute administration of CBD induced anxiolytic effects with a dose-dependent inverted U-shaped curve in healthy subjects, since the subjective anxiety measures were reduced with CBD 300 mg, but not with CBD 100 and 900 mg, in the post-speech phase.

    Saudi Arabia's counterterrorism apparatus targets rights activists - IFEX "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

    Saudi Arabia's counterterrorism apparatus targets rights activists - IFEX: "King Salman should immediately pardon and release anyone imprisoned merely for peacefully expressing their opinions," said Sarah Leah Whitson, Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. "In combating terrorism within its borders, Saudi Arabia should engage with rights activists and offer them a seat at the table rather than a bed in a prison cell."

    Saudi Arabia's counterterrorism law and a series of related decrees are used to criminalize a wide range of acts as "terrorism", including intending to "insult the reputation of the state," "harm public order," or "calling for atheist thought."

    Emmerson said that Saudi authorities denied him access to people jailed under the counterterrorism law and expressed concern regarding Saudi Arabia's "unacceptably broad definition of terrorism." He also called on Saudi Arabia to set up "a new independent mechanism to re-examine all cases where people had been jailed for exercising their rights of free speech, thought, conscience, religion or opinion, and of peaceful assembly or association."

    All Hell Will Break Loose Warns Legendary Hedge Fund Manager "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at ZeroHedge.com

    stock-bubble2

    It took Paul Singers Elliott Management less than 24 hours to raise $5 billion earlier this month, however it is safe to say he wont be using any of that cash to buy stocks at current prices, or even BTFD. Instead, as he writes in his Q1 letter to investors, the legendary hedge fund manager thinks that it is a good time to build a significant amount of dry powder,

    The reason for that is if, or rather when, Trumps pro-growth agenda fails to be implemented, all hell will break loose and that a recession looms as the artificial crutches propping up risk assets are pulled out:

    Given groupthink and the determination of policy makers to do whatever it takes to prevent the next market crash, we think that the low-volatility levitation magic act of stocks and bonds will exist until the disenchanting moment when it does not. And then all hell will break loose (dont ask us what hell looks like), a lamentable scenario that will nevertheless present opportunities that are likely to be both extraordinary and ephemeral. The only way to take advantage of those opportunities is to have ready access to capital.

    Isolating the impact of the Trump Put as described recently by Deutsche Bank, Singer writes that although the growth agenda of the Trump administration is slow to get off the ground, markets still anticipate that much of it will be enacted, sooner or later. And yet, according to most metrics, the Trump trade has already been priced out of most markets with the notable exception of equities, which as Bank of America pointed out in a note last week, are now the last one standing.

    3D-Printed Chess Pieces Double as Stylish Planters for Tiny Air Plants "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Best Chess Sets

    Chess is a game with ancient origins, but creative folks have continually found new and exciting ways to reinvent it. With the advent of 3D printing, the ordinary chess board now has seemingly infinite design possibilities that take it beyond a game. Online purveyor Living Chess has done just this by creating a 3D printed chess set that doubles as stylish micro containers for air plants. The iconic king, queen, knight, rook, and pawns have all been reimagined as geometric-inspired motifs that fuse tradition with modern design. When not in use, this set is a work of art.

    Even if youre not a fan of the game, the striking beauty of these pieces make it one of the best chess sets around. When you buy the entire gamewith either a glass or bamboo boardyou receive 32 pieces as well as 32 plants. To ensure their longevity, Living Chess recommends that you soak and dry the plants in their containers every week or 10 days.

    Living Chess produces the 3D forms with sustainability in mind. The planters are produced from a corn-based bioplastic, and a portion of sales are donated to Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo, where the Living Chess studio is based.

    The micro planters are sold as sets or as individual pieces through the Living Chess Etsy shop.

    The goal of the unprecedented launch is to simulate a North Korean ICBM aimed at the U.S. homeland, officials said last week.

    Vandenberg said the missile will attempt to fly over the Pacific Ocean and intercept some sort of target object being launched from the central Pacific Ocean.

    Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche lauded as hero for dying to protect others "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    PORTLAND, ORE. The stabbing attacks on a Portland train Friday, which were preceded by a hate-filled tirade by the assailant, have raised tensions in the Muslim community and, at the same time, local area Pagans have lost a beloved friend and family member.

    Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche, one of two men who died trying to stop what police are describing as ranting and raving and hate speech directed at two teenage girls, had close ties to the Pagan world, although it is not yet clear what is own religious identity was.

    Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Meche [Asha Deliverance/public Facebook photo].

    Namkai Meche grew up in Ashland, Oregon, where he graduated high school. A childhood friend, Christopher Landt, told a reporter for the Oregonian, If he knew he was going to die, he still would have done what he did.

    Another high school friend, Andrew Harlan, recalled a friendship based in part on backpacking. Harlan said, Whenever you go backpacking with someone, you have to bond with them. You have to trust them. As soon as you have that bond, its almost like youre brothers for a time.

    It was his mother Asha Deliverance, who confirmed on Facebook that her son was one of the victims. Namkai Meche was also grandson of Freyja, who was initiated into the Craft by Aline Macha OBrien as one of the first members of the Stone Dancers coven.

    OBrien described Freyja as a dear friend who has worked with Earth mysteries all her life. Earning a doctorate from Stanford, she and the late Beth Bone Blossom did a lot of studying with a shaman in South America, which Freyja then applied locally.

    For a brief moment this weekend, the Fearless Girl statue on Wall Street became a pee post, her dignity denigrated by the addition of a tiny sculpted pug lifting its leg over her left foot. The small canine, dubbed Pissing Pug, appeared yesterday morning, installed by artist Alex Gardega to protest the corporate feminism underlying the original statue, as the New York Post first reported. But it proved much less resilient than its target: Gardega removed his work just a few hours later, following public backlash.

    This is corporate nonsense, Gardega told the Post, noting that Fearless Girl, which was made by artist Kristen Visbal and installed by financial firm State Street Global Advisors, has nothing to do with feminism. He added that it disrespects Arturo Di Modica, the sculptor whose Charging Bull has become a Wall Street icon since it was installed in 1989. Di Modica is...

    Moon Shocked to Find 4 Unaccounted US THAAD Launchers In His Country "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


    The newly-elected president of South Korea ordered a probe into why the countrys defense ministry failed to report to him the import of four more rocket launchers for the US anti-missile system in addition to the two confirmed publicly.
    President Moon said it was very shocking, to hear the four additional launchers had been installed without being reported to the new government or to the public, presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan told a media briefing on Tuesday.

    The deployment of the US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system was approved by the previous conservative government in Seoul, which fell after then-President Park Geun-hye of the Saenuri Party was impeached under the corruption charges. Moon Jae-in, a Democrat, won the May 9 election and is in the process of power transition. A promise to review the controversial THAAD deal was part of his campaign.

    Moons office announced a probe into an undisclosed entry of four THAAD launchers, which were brought into the country in addition to two units, the deployment of which was publicly announced.

    Markets Update: Cryptocurrency Prices Rebound After Last Weeks Dip "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    dip

    The price of bitcoin seems to have found some stability over the past 24 hours, after last weeks sharp upward climb in value followed by a 30 percent dip the next day. Since the drop, the price has bounced back and is hovering around US$2250-2300 per BTC at the time of writing.

    Bullish Pressure Returns to Bitcoin Markets After a 30 Percent Dip 

    Last week was an exciting time for cryptocurrency traders as quite a few digital assets hit all-time price highs on May 24. Bitcoins value reached a high of $2760 across global exchanges which was followed by a short-term downtrend to the sub-$2000 mark. Quite a few traders had assumed a significant dip to the $1800-1600 range would take place, but so far these predictions never materialized. Since bitcoin ricocheted from its low, it has since consolidated between $2200-2300 over the past three days. For now, there is a touch of bullish pressure keeping the price going, but its significantly weaker than last week.

    Dutch Bitcoin Exchange BL3P Increases Reach to 34 European Countries "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    http://ift.tt/2rgK7IS

    Dutch Bitcoin Exchange BL3P Expands to Serve 34 European Countries

    BL3P announced the expansion of their services into the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA). This marks a significant extension from their original operation which primarily served residents of the Netherlands. BL3P, a subsidiary of Bitonic, is a bitcoin exchange founded in 2013 that allows users to buy and sell bitcoin using Euros.

    With their expansion complete, BL3Ps aims to grow their user base outside of their Dutch majority through the targeting of new customers in the EU region. Speaking to Bitcoin Magazine Jeroen Rijnbout of BL3P stated, We want to put BL3P on the map as a reliable and user-friendly trading platform for users from the Eurozone. In the long term, BL3P hopes to build its reputation as an exchange that is run by an experienced team and take Bitonic to the international stage.

    The move brings BL3P into the EU marketplace, which is already competitive in the bitcoin space with dozens of exchanges competing for customers. Rijnbout views this competition with optimism stating, We believe it is good to have multiple exchanges to choose from. This enables users to spread their risk, profit from arbitrage and choose a party that they trust. Centralization of the majority of bitcoin trading to one exchange is dangerous, as we have seen in the past. We see it as a healthy development for the ecosystem.

    With their recent expansion, the Dutch company now allows all SEPA countries to buy and sell bitcoin. Their current services offer the ability to use market and limit orders. BL3P charges a fixed trading fee of 0.25 percent on all buy/sell transactions. However, for the next five weeks this transaction fee is discounted by 50 percent as part of Bitonics 5th anniversary celebration.

    BL3P currently offers services that support the bitcoin cryptocurrency, but has stated its plans to expand support to alternative cryptocurrencies in the future. We pay close attention to the developments in altcoins and see great value in some of them as testbeds for future developments on Bitcoin, says Rijnbout.

    We tend to be hesitant in adding new currencies, as we want to ensure an altcoin or token has added value before we add them to our platforms, Rijnbout adds. However, at the same time, we listen to and understand the needs of traders and investors and we want to be able to meet their wishes. For example, Rijnbout suggested that support for Litecoin on their trading platform is of particular interest...

    Sony a9 Showed Overheating Warning After 20 Minutes, Photog Says "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    The Sony a9 is supposed to be a game changer in the world of sports photography, but now a new potential issue is threatening to disrupt those ambitions: photographers are reporting that the cameras overheating indicator is turning on after relatively short periods of use in ordinary conditions.

    Photographer Danny Eusebio, known as that1cameraguy online, posted the 9.5-minute video above about a recent experience he had with the camera. After taking the a9 to a pool for a swim meet, Eusebio noticed that the overheating warning icon showed up on the screen after less than 20 minutes of use in 81F.

    Not exactly what I would call Pro like, Eusebio writes. There are a lot of positive things about this camera, but this is actually a big deal for what I do, considering Sony marketed this as an actual sports camera.

    He does note that this was simply a warning indicator that turned on the camera never shut down due to overheating but a photographer working a shoot likely wont feel comfortable after seeing the warning and not knowing whether the camera will abruptly stop working to cool down.

    Heres what the Sony a9 instruction manual says about the overheating warning icon:

    Chiles 2017 Devastating Fires The Legacy of Pinochet Continues "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    Salvaged bed frame. Photo by Orin Langelle.

    Photographer Orin Langelle, Strategic Communications Director for Global Justice Ecology Project, was part of an international delegation from the Campaign to STOP Genetically Engineered Trees  that arrived in Sanitago, Chile on 20 March 2017 to document the social and ecological impacts of industrial tree plantations in the country, and their link to the recent wildfires that were the worst in Chiles history. The fires started in January 2017.

    It is estimated that eleven people were killed, 1500 houses destroyed, thousands displaced and over 700,000 acres decimated. The delegation was sponsored by OLCA (Observatorio Latinoamericano de Conflictos Ambientales). I accompanied the delegation as a photojournalist and a participant. The opinions in the photo essay are Langelles and not necessarily the views of the delegation or the participants.

    All of the images from the photo essay linked here were taken between 21 30 March 2017. Notes of the historical background are in italics and very brief as the legacy of the beginning of neoliberalism in the Americas is long and tragic. I hope these nuances of the past are not lost on the present or potential future of the Mapuche and Chilean peoples.

    She looks SO different after being rescued. "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"


    Locked inside a tiny metal cage at a bear bile farm in Vietnam, likely since she was a cub, Miracle existed for one purpose so people could extract her bile, which is a prized ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine.

    Credit: Jo-Anne McArthur/We Animals

    Bile is a digestive juice produced in a bears liver and stored in the gallbladder, and people usually extract the bile through an open wound in the bears body. Every time the bile is taken out, with a large needle, the animal can feel a tremendous amount of pain, according to Animals Asia. Its also common for bacteria to be introduced in the bile extraction process, which can cause dangerous infections.

    Bears at these farms spend their lives in rows of dark cages many of them never see the sun, and they barely have room to turn around. While no one will ever know exactly what Miracle went through, her body told a story of agony not only did she have an unhealthy gallbladder, but Miracles head was dotted with rough calluses, which formed after years of rubbing her head against her cage.

    Bear bile farming has been outlawed in Vietnam since 1992, so the bile farm that Miracle came from had been operating illegally.

    In 2007, wildlife officials confiscated Miracle from the bile farm, and she was transferred to a government-run rescue center while she waited for a team from Animals Asia to bring her to its bear rescue center in Tam Dao National Park.

    While Miracles bile wasnt being extracted at the rescue center, animal photographer Jo-Anne McArthur, who accompanied the Animals Asia team to pick up Miracle, remembers the bear being highly stressed in her small cage so stressed that she swung her body back and forth in a neurotic manner.Its one thing to know that bear bile farming exists, and its another thing altogether to see a huge animal in such incredible agony, McAr...

They is referring to extraterrestrials of course, and there are probably a million reasons as to why a more intelligent race from the outside looking in would not want to interact with us on such an open level just yet. To an outsider, we might not look the most attractive. The planet is plagued with war, poverty, diseases, greed, and secrecy. Environmentally its a disaster, and despite the fact that our potential is literally limitless, we choose to live in a way that is not really harmonious with the planet and all life on it. These are just a few of many reasons. Not to mention the fact that full blown contact might be a little more than our minds can handle, but perhaps not?

    The annual arts festival Vivid Sydney is back for its 2017 edition, lighting up Sydney over 23 days with a myriad of music and light installations. This year's public art festival includes more than 90 art installations that wash the city in color as the sun goes down.

    The festival runs across seven precincts with a highlight being the light projections that swath the famed Sydney Opera House in color. In the past, luminaries like Brian Eno have been charged with creating the spectacular effects on this iconic monument. This year, sea creatures and plant life ooze across the architecture, as created by Ash Bolland. The visuals are accompanied by a soundscape from Brazilian composer Amon Tobin.

    More than 2 million people visited the festival last year and this year there's even more to offer, with 400 music events planned to complement the incredible installations. From the lasers, fireworks, and music of the Magicians of the Mist installation in Darling Harbor to the interactive light swings installation at The Rock titled Freedom of Movement, there is a never-ending array of art to experience.

    Vivid Sydney runs through June 17, 2017, with most events beginning around 5:30 pm.

    The annual Vivid Sydney festival is a feast for the eyes, with over 90 art installations across the city. Here's a look at some highlights.

    Americas Deteriorating Nuclear Infrastructure, Three Mile Island Plant to Close In 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Survival"


    Exelon Corp.s Three Mile Island atomic power plant, site of the worst U.S. commercial nuclear accident in 1979, will close in 2019 after losing money for five years.

    The Pennsylvania plant, with one reactor still in operation, has lost revenue as power prices fell, Chicago-based Exelon said Tuesday in a filing. For the third consecutive year, the plant failed to win generating capacity payments last week in an auction held by PJM Interconnection LLC, the largest U.S. power market. Meanwhile, the generator has failed to win government subsidies or market reforms to enhance its viability, Exelon said.

    The announcement underscores challenges facing U.S. nuclear power generators from plants burning cheap natural gas and rising output of wind and solar power. At least five nuclear power plants have retired in the past five years including Fort Calhoun in Nebraska, which closed in October. Entergy Corp. in December announced plans to close its Palisades plant in Michigan.

    It had been listed as charcoal. "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    A discovery at an airport in Hong Kong on Tuesday shows just how rapidly a population of critically endangered animals is being decimated.In one of the largest busts ever of its kind, customs officials found over 15,400 pounds of pangolin scales in large containers shipped from Africa on their way to China, where the scales are falsely believed to be a sort of cure-all in traditional medicine.

    The shipment, which originated in Nigeria, was listed as charcoal.A shipment of this size represents the loss of thousands of wild pangolins, Vicky Flynn, head of communications for the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF), told The Dodo.

    Native to parts of Africa and Asia, the shy, nocturnal animals are the most trafficked mammal on the planet. They are known to curl up into tight little balls when theyre scared. And roughly every five minutes, a wild pangolin is captured to be shipped, sold and killed in East Asia.
     Sometimes the animals are shipped while still alive and traffickers inject them with water or force-feed them corn powder to make them weigh more, so they sell for more. Other times, the animals are slaughtered beforehand and their scales are shipped, as in this case.

    Officials are still conducting an investigation into the discovery of the scales, which is estimated to be worth over $590,000. No one knows exactly how many pangolins were killed for this shipment, but for a species on the brink of extinction, the loss of life is devastating.Even though the shipment of pangolins and pangolin scales has been internationally banned, the black market trade is still running rampant, as this latest seizure shows.

    The key now is to enforce the law and to raise awareness among rural communities so that they understand the importance of protecting pangolins and that criminal actions will be enforced if they dont, Flynn said. Without immediate action, pangolins could be lost within our lifetime.

    Think small tile, parquet floors, heavy wall moulding, molded glass lights, transoms, wall mounted sinks, ceiling medallions, and so much more!

    This space has been my favorite for years. I love the obvious history of the building (specifically the floors and moulding) and the cool mix of furniture.

    Everything was shot using Nikon D800E and Nikon D600 DSLRs. Chang shot over 200,000 photos during the trip, generating over 1,000+ timelapse clips and roughly 20 terabytes of images.

    Technology, shariah gold and bitcoin point to changing views

    Ramadan Kareem rang out across Dubai and the rest of the Muslim World this weekend as the holiest month in the Islamic calendar began. For 29-30 days over a billion Muslims around the world practice sawm (fasting), charity (zakat) and salat (prayer). This period is a time of spiritual reflection, increased devotion and worship as well as a time to come together with loved ones for both the break fast meal (Iftar) and pre-fast meal (Suhur).

    Ramadan is obviously observed in different ways around the Muslim world. Here in Dubai a non-Muslim will experience a place full of both celebration and reflection, with events happening every evening that are there to welcome everybody. The month also sees a number of companies launching Ramadan promotions ranging from bank accounts (free banking for six months, anyone?) to spa treatments (2-for-1 massage?) to huge packs of dates (the first food to break the fast).

    As part of the celebrations, a new gold-backed currency has been launched, here in Dubai. It is a new currency known as OneGram (OGC) backed by one gram of gold and can be used for digital payments. There is a fixed number of OGCs and digital transaction fees (minus admin costs) will be reinvested to buy more gold. According to the managers, the amount of gold backing each OGC will increase with time.

    OneGram has been launched by a private company of the same name. The company claims to offer a proof-of-stake blockchain that is further anonymized than Bitcoin. Reports state that developers employ zero-knowledge dual-key stealth addresses and ring signature protocols toward instant, untraceable, unlinkable, trustless transactions.

    Laura Berman & Chris Akers' Home on Design*Sponge

    Prairieside Cottage is located in the rolling Flint Hills of Kansas, surrounded by seven acres of open land in the northwest corner of a small town called Matfield Green. Owned by a creative family who loves exploring nature, collecting and playing together, the cottage is a home away from home and vacation rental property. Laura Berman is an artist and professor at the Kansas City Art Institute, and Chris Akers is a former architect and owner of an artisanal bread bakery who focuses on projects within their various businesses and cares for their home and two sons, Jovian and Alex. Their primary residence is a quick two-and-a-half-hour drive to Kansas City, which makes the cottage a great weekend getaway to unplug and connect as a family, as well as a space to host dear friends and international travelers. Laura and Chris also offer a family-friendly artist residency called the Prairieside Cottage Outpost that provides guests with a private and peaceful retreat for creative discovery. The program supports 2-4 artist residencies each year and has recently hosted; Hilary Lorenz, James Woodfill, April Flanders, Blake and Hannah March Sanders, Yoonmi Nam and Warren Rosser.

    Laura and Chris spent a few years looking for a second home that would provide a unique and natural setting for their kids to roam free without the constraints of the city and allow them to unwind from their busy lives. They started their search in Spain, where Laura was born, and went on to look in the Appalachian Mountains, North Carolina coast, eastern Oregon, and Colorado, until they landed on Chase County, located in the center of the Flint Hills region in Kansas.

    Nikon 28mm f/1.4 Lens to Be Unveiled This Week, Reports Say "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    Nikon is reportedly gearing up to launch a number of new products this week, and one of them is said to be a new Nikkor 28mm f/1.4 lens.

    Nikon Rumors writes that the lens will most likely be officially unveiled sometime in the next 48 hours, as Nikon doesnt announce new gear on Fridays.

    The new lens will be a higher end option at 28mm compared to the current Nikkor 28mm f/1.8G, which costs $697.

    I expect the new 28mm f/1.4 lens to be over $1,000, Peter of Nikon Rumors writes. The Japanese camera site Nokishita Camera is reporting that the lens will cost 240,300 in Japan, which converts to about $2,168.

    Nikon is also said to have a new Nikkor AF-S 8-15mm f/3.5-4.5E ED fisheye lens (148,500, or ~$1,300) and Nikkor AF-P DX 10-20mm f/4.5-5.6G VR lens (40,500, or ~$360) ready for announcement this week. Stay tuned.

    Why Is The Media Ignoring Americas Drinking Water Crisis? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Derrick Broze

    America has a looming water health crisis and no one seems interested in talking about it.

    Over the last year many Americans have likely heard of the lead poisoning affecting the drinking water of Flint, Michigan. We have heard the horror stories of children being sickened due to the failure of Flints bureaucracies and failing infrastructure. However, a new report from the Natural Resources Defense Council reveals that Americans in every state are suffering because of failing infrastructure, under-reporting of violations, and lax enforcement of drinking water standards. The NRDC is an environmental advocacy group based in New York City.

    The report, Threats on Tap: Widespread Violations Highlight Need for Investment in Water Infrastructure and Protections, found close to 80,000 violations of drinking water standards in every state in the U.S. Very small systems found in rural or sparsely populated areas account for more than half of all health-based violations, and nearly 70 percent of all violations, the NRDC writes.

    Old Skills Revival: DIY Clothes And Shoes "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

     

    If you walk into the local stores these days, it may be hard to believe that all those racks of clothes could ever be sold, let alone become unavailable.

    Old Skills

    On the other hand, the fact that clothes stay one store shelves for months on end is also a good indicator that people cant afford to buy even the cheaper brands.

    In a post crisis world, not only will it be impossible to buy clothes, you may also find it just as hard to buy material, patterns, and tools for making your own clothes and shoes. As someone that learned how to knit, crochet, weave, and hand sew by age 9, I can safely say there is far more to good quality, long lasting clothes than what you see in the stores.

    When it comes to surviving a crisis, certain skills will make it possible to make the perfect clothes for any and every situation.

    Old Skills Revival: DIY Clothes And Shoes

    Fabrics for Making Clothes

    There are many fabrics on the market these days made from petroleum and other non-organic materials. While these fabrics may be thinner and lighter, they also require a good bit of processing in factories before they can be used for clothing.

    By contrast, our ancestors readily turned cotton, wool, hemp, and other plant based goods into textiles by using spinning wheels and looms. By the same token, stretching and tanning animal hides (including brain tanning) also offers a source of fabric from just about any animal you take for food.

    Other Materials for Making Clothes

    Chances are, you already realize that the textiles used for your garments are nothing more than a series of inter woven threads. Unfortunately, it is neither practical nor feasible to carry a fully functional loom around with you that can produce a good quality fabric.

    On the other hand, spinning cotton, wool, and other materials into yarn using a drop spindle or spinning wheel requires far less equipment. Once you have yarn, you only need a crochet hook or pair of knitting needles to make sweaters, hats, gloves, socks, and other clothing.

    Is the snow leopard actually 3 distinct subspecies? "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    New research published in the Journal of Heredity suggests that there are three subspecies of snow leopard, which researchers say could create new conservation opportunities for the elusive species that inhabits remote, high-altitude habitat across Central and South Asia. All snow leopards were believed to belong to one monotypic species, Panthera uncia, prior to the present study. Though the cats range is immense, extending across 1.6 million square kilometers (more than 600,000 square miles) and 12 Asian countries, while also being largely inaccessible to humans, as it includes some of the highest and coldest mountain ranges in the world, hunting and poaching still pose such a serious threat to snow leopards that an estimated population of just 3,500 to 7,000 individuals remains in the wild today. Because of the forbidding terrain they call home, snow leopards are the last of the big cat species which also includes jaguars, leopards, lions, and tigers to have been subjected to a subspecies assessment. A research team led by Dr. Jan E. Janecka, a professor of biological science at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA, conducted the first range-wide genetic assessment of snow leopards by analyzing the DNA in scat samples collected on wildlife trails and other areas frequented by the cats. Janecka and team determined that there are three primary genetic clusters of snow leopards, each of which qualifies as its own subspecies: a Northern subspecies in the Altai region, a Central subspecies in the core Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau regions, and

    A Closer Look at the Dolly Zoom "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    The dolly zoom, also known as the Hitchcock zoom or Vertigo effect, is a filmmaking technique that involves changing a zoom lens angle of view while moving the camera toward or away from a subject to keep their relative size in the frame the same. Heres a 4-minute video by Now You See It that explains this technique and how (and why) its used.

    The Dolly Zoom is a bizarre cinematic effect, and it can do a lot more than just make you dizzy, writes narrator Jack Nugent. Lets take a look at some famous instances of the dolly zoom, see what they accomplish, and explore how it teaches a lot of principles of filmmaking.

    On the still photography side of things, the dolly zoom against a blank background has been used to show how different lens focal lengths and camera distances affect how faces look in portraits its an explanation of how the camera adds 10 pounds. Heres an example animated GIF by photographer Dan Vojtech that went viral last year:

    The dolly zoom is called the Hitchcock zoom and Vertigo effect because it was popularized by filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock in his 1958 film Vertigo, which used the technique to covey the disorienting effects of vertigo.

    3-Year-Old Girl Dresses Up as Strong Female Role Models in Empowering Series "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Inspirational Photos of Female Role Models Scout Penelope

    Scout and her Nonni

    At just 3 years old, Scout Penelope has already acquired an impressive arsenal of strong female role models. In her empowering series of inspirational photographs, the little girl emulates the women she looks up to, from well-known celebrities to her cancer survivor grandma.

    In each look-a-like picture, Scout successfully attempts to reinterpret photographs of female figures. To aptly capture the feel of the original images, she dresses up and poses just like her subjects, who include iconic artist Frida Kahlo, beloved actress Carrie Fisher, animated Pixar heroine Moana, and even Nonnie (her grandma), whose recent battles with cancer actually inspired the series. When Nonnies hair started to fall out, Scout got very concerned and I wanted to put both of our minds at ease, Scout's mother, Ashley Lardon, explains on Bored Panda. I needed to teach her and remind myself that women are fighters! We chose famous & fierce women to teach her about the strength that women have.

    In addition to helping little Scout cope with her family's struggles, the inspirational photos also cheered up Nonnie (who is now cancer free!) and, perhaps most unexpectedly, even taught Scout's mom some surprising lessons. This project has probably taught me just as much or more than it taught my daughter, Larson confesses. I truly want Scout to be able to look back at this and know that women are just as strong as any man. And to be quite honest, my fingers are crossed that by the time shes old enough to understand the strength shes portraying- women wont be seen as delicate and dainty anymore, anyway. And I hope that when Scout looks back on this, she is proud of who she is and who she will become.

    Giants: A Black and White Series Captures the Complexity of the Humpback Whale "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Over the last three years photographer Jem Cresswell has photographed humpback whales during their annual migration to Vavau, Tonga, swimming with the great creatures in the vast waters of the southern Pacific Ocean. Cresswells series Giants captures the individual personality of the great whales, each of which seem to pose specifically for his underwater camera.

    I was initially drawn to the whales gentle nature, sheer size and the feeling of insignificance in their presence, said Cresswell. Over the past 3 years returning to Tonga, I have sought to capture intimate portraits of these complex and conscious animals, bringing the viewer into the world of these mystical giants.

    In addition to being intrigued by the animals size, the Australian-based artist is also fascinated by their brains. In 2006, spindle cells, which were only thought to be present in humans and great apes, were also found to exist within the brains of humpback whales. These cells, which are tied to social organization, empathy, and intuition, were found to be more than three times as prevalent in humpback whales than they were in humans.

    This sense of humanness is one of the reasons that Cresswell chooses to shoot his underwater subjects in black and white. The main focus of the project concerns the whales sense of character and consciousness, he explained to Colossal. To me, black and white avoids distraction and draws the viewer directly to the subject. Black and white also has a sense of timelessness to it, which I feel represents how long these creatures have been around for.

    Cresswell will continue photographing humpback whales in the future, but at the present he is taking a break to work on a new series focused on Australias Great Barrier Reef. You can get a behind-the-scenes perspective of Cresswells underwater shoots on his...

One protester elaborated I am compelled to interrupt this because I have seen the damage of climate change. Four of the protesters were arrested and one was detained.

    Beyond Extreme Energy organizer Lee Steward called FERC an arm of the oil and gas industries, referring to their history of rubber stamping almost all proposed oil and gas project. Protesters said that FERC was not qualified to manage a transition to renewable energy and should be replaced rather than re-enabled with new commissioners.

    Ethereum Is Dominating in China

    Bradley Fink

    When we first heard Vitalik Buterin was learning Chinese, it was a clue to his ambitions in China. Less than two years later, the platform he co-founded is now a growing force in the Middle Kingdom. Since he joined the ChinaLedger Alliance (May 2016) and announced the expansion of BlockApps, an Ethereum building-blocks platform, in China (September 2016), there has been a movement in cities and among companies in big industries all throughout China. This is in some part due to the efforts of Wanxiang Blockchain Labs, which has made it their mission in China to bring Ethereum to the mainstream, and also in part to the savvy and persistent efforts of Buterin himself.

    At a recent Ethereum meetup in Hong Kong, Buterin said that Wanxiang Blockchain Labs are making good inroads into China. Headquartered in Hangzhou, Wanxiang has led the Ethereum charge in China for more than a year. Having partnered with Ethereum early on for the Global Blockchain Summit following Devcon2 in Shanghai in July of 2016, Wanxiang is now Chinas top funder of promising blockchain projects.

    With its BlockGrantX sponsorship program, it has allocated funds to Ethereum startups including iEx.ec (for fully distributed cloud computing), Proof-of-Identity (for KYC, wallets, multisig, voting, authentication and reputation systems), Golem (P2P computation), Casper (a proof-of-stake consensus protocol), the Raiden Network (an Ethereum off-chain state network) and Micro Oracles (blockchain identity verification). And this month, Wanxiang launched its WanCloud platform for Chinese developers, giving them access to tools for building applications on open-source blockchains.

    Since the recent Global Blockchain Financial Summit in Hangzhou, Chinas rapid technological developments on the Ethereum platform has been garnering attention. One blog post in particular, from ConsenSyss Head of Global Business Development Andrew Keys, gave some insight into the rapid rate of Chinese adoption. Highlights of the post, titled Ethereum Growing Exponentially in China, include:

    Peach Airline to Accept Bitcoin After Japan Recognizes Cryptocurrency "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    http://ift.tt/2rAG6BU

    Peach Airline

    Peach Aviation will be the first Japanese airline to accept bitcoins as payment for plane tickets, according to a statement made by the budget carriers CEO Shinichi Inoue on May 22. Peach also plans to install bitcoin ATMs in Japanese airports as part of its bid to attract more tourism from Asia.

    Peach operates domestic flights as well as flights to China, Korea and Thailand, and passengers should be able to purchase tickets with bitcoin by the end of the year, Inoue said.

    Although Peach is not the first carrier to embrace the cryptocurrency, the decision is still significant.

    Three years ago, airBaltic became the very first airline to accept bitcoin payments. In 2015, the Universal Air Travel Plan (UATP), a payment network owned by a consortium of major international airlines, partnered with Bitnet to accept cryptocurrency payments for its more than 260 member airlines.

    UATPs membership represents approximately 95 percent of global airline capacity, and the industry group had earlier added support for other alternative payment options like PayPal and Alipay.

    Although paying for airline tickets with bitcoin on most major airlines is technically possible, its still up to individual airlines to decide if they will support the practice. As of yet, only a handful have elected to do so, despite the anti-fraud benefits of bitcoin transactions. Third-party online travel booking sites like CheapAir and Expedia accept bitcoin payments, but precious few airlines feature a simple Pay With Bitcoin button that UATPs integration supports.

    Peachs announcement comes hot on the heels of a landmark regulatory decision: Japans official recognition of bitcoin as a legal payment method, thanks to an act of parliament that took effect on April 1.

    The law came as the result of more than a year of debate in Japan about how to handle the cryptocurrency. The Japanese parliament first called for the regulation of bitcoin and bitcoin exchanges by the countrys Financial Services Agency, the countrys financial regulatory watchdog, in May of last year.

    The new law also brings Japans bitcoin exchanges, which handle nearly half of global trading volume, under the same know-your-customer and anti-money laundering rules that apply to banks and other financial institutions.

    Bitcoin exchanges in Japan must now meet minimum capital requirements, follow operational and cybersecurity best practices and submit to annual audits by the Financial Servi...

    How to Hold Bitcoin in an IRA and Why Its Still Not Easy "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    http://ift.tt/2sa5ZFT

    IRA

    As bitcoin continues its bull run, more U.S. investors are looking for ways to protect their gains from taxation, and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are slowly emerging as a viable option.

    While holding bitcoin in an IRA has technically been possible since IRS Notice 2014-21, which declared bitcoin property for tax purposes, the process remains complicated and fraught with liabilities.

    Some regulators are trying to fix that. On January 9, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report calling on the IRS to better inform taxpayers about the reporting requirements and potential liabilities of holding bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in their IRAs.

    But for adventurous and capable investors who want to bet some of their retirement on bitcoin, there are currently two ways to get the tax protection of an IRA.

    First, investors will need to find a custodian to administer the IRA. Most IRA custodians allow unconventional investments like real estate and precious metals, but do not allow clients to hold bitcoin, at least not directly.

    The alternative is to open an account with an IRA custodian that works with a fund like the Bitcoin Investment Trust (BIT), which holds bitcoin and issues shares based on its value. BIT is an approved investment vehicle offered by IRA custodians like PENSCO, Entrust, Millennium and Equity Institutional. However, there are several disadvantages to this method.

    The first is that BIT shares are only available to accredited investors, those with a net worth of more than $1 million or with an annual income greater than $200,000. The second is that the account owner does not hold any bitcoin directly, only shares in a fund that promises to hold actual bitcoin on his or her behalf. The third is that the intermediary custodian who holds the asset, in this case shares in the BIT fund, charges fees to cover compliance and management costs.

    For non-accredited investors who want to buy and hold bitcoin directly and avoid high custodial fees, there is really only one option, and thats to set up a Limited Liability Company within a self-directed IRA.

    A self-directed IRA LLC allows investors to hold bitcoin directly without giving up their wallet keys to a custodian and without seeking custodial approval for transactions, but it comes with more paperwork and liability risk.

    Investors will still need to find the right custodian. Any IRA custodian that offers chec...

    UN to investigate crimes against Myanmar Rohingya | Bangkok Post: news: The mission will seek access to Myanmar, where the army last week rejected allegations of abuses during a crackdown last year which forced some 75,000 Rohingya to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh. The UN urged the government to "fully cooperate" by making available the findings of its domestic investigations and by "granting full, unrestricted and unmonitored access".

    The two other members are Radhika Coomaraswamy, a human rights veteran and lawyer from Sri Lanka, and Australian activist Christopher Sidoti, said the UN statement, issued after private consultations within the 47-member state forum.

    Nigerias First-Ever Venice Biennale Pavilion Challenges Colonial Narratives "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Peju Alatise, Flying Girls (2016), dimensions variable (photo by the author for Hyperallergic)

    VENICE  Now. Qudus Onikeku pressed his fingers together, snap. Its passed, he observed. Now. Snap. Its passed. Now. Onikeku, a dancer and choreographer, was sitting on the steps inside the Nigerian pavilion the countrys first at the Venice Biennale located along the Grand Canal at the San Stae Vaparetto stop. By way of introduction to his work and the motivation for its inclusion in the pavilions exhibition whose very title asks the question How About Now?  Onikeku was giving me his take on the slippery notion of the now, a state of being that he describes as condensing past narratives and future possibilities.

    Im not interested in the present, Im interested in the now, said Onikeku. The present is concerned with the past, but the now is so powerful that it doesnt have time to think about the past, its grabbing at the future. Thats when dance becomes so interesting, its constantly inventing the now. Onikekus work for the Venice Biennale, Right Here, Right Now, is a trilogy of videos that feature three distinct dance performances that bring together elements of modern and African dance, contemporary choreography, and aspects of age-old Yoruba spirituality and philosophy.

    For a country mired in a history of colonialism, the concept of now is particularly essential. How About Now?, co-curated by Adenrele Sonariwo and Emmanuel Iduma, features three installations by Victor Ehikhamenor, Peju Alatise, and Qudus Onikeku that all deal, in some form, with the notion of time and the impulse to shape a cultural and national identity outside of the colonialist narrative that the country has long been forced into.

    this coat was a blanket "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

    IMG_20170518_112549_368

    I have had this lovely lightweight throw for a few years and it was getting pretty damaged by cat claws and general life wear. It's lightweight cotton that's been hand quilted. I tucked it away and then realized I would actually enjoy it more if I could wear it. So I sewed it into a coat. I didn't use a pattern or tutorial but I did find this one later, which is pretty much how I sewed it. I added a pocket and also some hooks and eyes to close it at the top. I love it! my girls think it's a bit crazy, but you know.

    It's been so busy around here, with both exciting thingsrecitals and performances and a birthday (I turned 45!) but also hard things, family members with health issues, the world in general and Portland dealing with tragic stuff. It feels so crazy right now. Everyday it seems like there is another horrible thing to wrap my brain around and also talk to the girls about.

    We had a lovely blast of sun over the weekend. I made a crisp with rhubarb, we got some junk hauled out of the back yard, and I am almost done sewing for this week's dance performances at ACMA. I am half-way through reading The Handmaid's Tale, which I had never read. I wantedto read it before I watch it. While sewing, I've been listening to Call Your Girlfriend, which is really great. Two smart women talking about politics, music, books, and sometimes Keanu Reeves.

    Relax with 8 Hours of Classical Space Music: From Richard Strauss & Haydn, to Brian Eno, Philip Glass & Beyond "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    If I had one piece of advice to pass on to a younger generation it would be this: listen to more space rock. The 60s/70s subgenre of progressive/psychedelic rock gets its name as much from its subject matter as from its loose, hypnotic, futuristic sonic characterThird Stone from the Sun, Space Oddity, Interstellar Overdrive, Dark Side of the Moon, Silver Machine you know. It mellows you out, man, something everyone could use right now, and inspires visions of a groovier future, though not without the occasional dystopic edge.

    Alternately, I would recommend that everyone acquire a collection of cosmic jazz, the Afrofuturist genre pioneered by Sun Ra and John and Alice Coltrane. But maybe you dont like space rock or free jazz, yet you still dream about space? Maybe you prefer more classical, minimalist, or ambient fare? Never fear, weve got a soundtrack for youone sure to mellow you out and inspire you, whoever you are.

    FDA Standing in the Way of You Starting a Family? "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

    Many families are a natural hormone away from starting a family, if only the FDA would get out of the way. Action Alert!

    Nearly one in six couples experience difficulty conceiving, a challenge that leads many hopeful parents to turn to in vitro fertilization (IVF)when the egg and the sperm are manually combined in a lab and then transferred to the uterus. This process is very expensive: average costs in the US are around $12,000, not including the medications that are needed. It is not uncommon for couples to need more than one treatment to conceive.

    Beyond the financial commitment, there are also significant risks, including: ovarian cancer, birth defects, stress, ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome, nausea and vomiting, premature delivery and low birth weight, and multiple births. The medications that accompany IVF also have the following complications: headaches, mood swings, abdominal pain, hot flashes, and abdominal bloating.

    For those couples for whom IVF is the best option, is it worth it? Absolutely. But what if there were a better way?

    One such effective, cheaper, and natural path among other options is progesterone. Progesterone during pregnancy helps support the developing embryo. If a woman has low progesterone levels, she may be conceiving but not even know it because her progesterone levels arent high enough to sustain the embryo past a few days. For many women, then, using a natural progesterone cream can help them conceive and carry and avoid the expense and side effects of IVF and fertility medications.

    Part of the IVF procedure involves three months of progesterone to get women through the first trimester! Why dont doctors advise taking progesterone before trying IVF? Weve seen this pattern often in conventional medicine. An invasive, expensive, and risky procedure is favored over a far simpler, far less invasive, and far less expensive natural alternative.

    Progesterone can also help after pregnancy. Progesterone levels soar during pregnancy, but plummet right before birth. This radical change can cause some women to experience symptoms of depression that include severe irritability, poor sleep, agitation, and restle...

    Google Abandons Its Nik Collection of Popular Photo Editing Software "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

    Google received praise from photographers last year when it made its $150 Nik Collection of popular photo editing software 100% free. But alas, all good things come to an end: Google has quietly announced that it will be abandoning the Nik Collection from here on out.

    The announcement was made through a simple banner message found on the Nik Collection homepage.

    The Nik Collection is free and compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 through 10.10; Windows Vista, 7, 8; and Adobe Photoshop through CC 2015, Google writes. We have no plans to update the Collection or add new features over time.

    Google originally acquired Nik Software back in 2012, bringing the Nik Collection and the popular photo editing app Snapseed into the fold. Snapseed had become one of the most popular photo editing apps in the iTunes App Store, and was perceived as a photo filter competitor to Instagram.

    But things have been going to well for the Nik family of software. In 2013, Google announced that it was killing off Snapseed for Desktop. At around the same time, Google regained some goodwill when it dropped the price of the Nik Collection from its original cost of about $500 to $150.

    Three years later, Google yanked that $150 price tag and made the software free. While many photographers lauded Google for the generous move, others wondered whether it was the beginning of the end for the popular collection of tools.

    If youre a fan of the Nik Collection, youll still be able to use the tools indefinitely for now, but theres no guarantee that the software will be supported well by future versions of Photoshop, Mac OS, and Windows. But who knows perhaps Google will decide to make the Nik Collection an open source project f......

    The Difference Between Inspiration & Imitation Adam J. Kurtz for Design*Sponge

    Were constantly surrounded by creative work of all forms and its easy to pick a little of this, a bit of that, and use it to inform our own work. Honor the work of people that move you by being considerate as you take it in. Admire without appropriating. Dissect without duplicating. Be inspired! Find motivation in the work of others, then treat it with the respect it deserves.

    Ultimately, the difference between inspiration and imitation is intent. Choose to be conscious of whats been done, whats happening around you, and what youre choosing to put into the world. Find your own voice and the form that fits it best. We all get our start by imitating, but ultimately were meant to move on as we grow. Continue below for some more thoughts on achieving balance and making the most out of creative inspiration. Adam J. Kurtz

    25+ Creative Graduation Cap Ideas For the Crafty Grad "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Creative Graduation Cap Ideas

    In the past, the humble graduation hat was merely part of the customary and ceremonial cap and gown ensemble.  Today, however, it has been transformed into a canvas for crafty graduates looking to go out with a bang. Ceremonies are made all the brighter and more entertaining thanks to the crafty grads' premeditated graduation cap ideaswhich include clever, comical, and creative designs.

    This collection of quirky caps range in style, concept, and inspiration. Many reference pop culture staples spanning well-known films, iconic television shows, and beloved childhood cartoon characters. On the opposite side of the spectrum, some convey political and social undertones. Still, many simply act as thank you notes to those who made it all possible: friends, family, and, of course, coffee.

    This year, with politics seeming to seep into every aspect of life, there has been a surge in political activism shining through graduates' crafted caps. Using the hashtag #IMMIGRAD, students who are immigrants or whose parents have migrated from another country are proudly expressing how their family's dreams are coming to fruition. Many people migrate to another country in order to lead a better life for their families, and education is one of the many privileges they seek out. As a result, these graduation caps are more than fancy headgear to themit's a symbol of success and a platform to show pride in their accomplishments.

    Even If You See Mold, These Foods Are Still Edible "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    By Joshua Krause

    Everyone has had the unfortunate experience of throwing out spoiled food. Its a sad experience that we all share. You opened up your fridge to grab a snack, only to find that its riddled with small moldy spots, and is exuding a funky smell. However, what isnt shared is the reaction to that situation. Thats because there are two kinds of people in the world. Those who respond to the sight of moldy food by grimacing and immediately throwing it away, and those who wonder if that food can be salvaged.

    So which is the correct decision? Thats highly dependent on what kind of food youre dealing with, according to the FDA. The government agency has released a handy guide to determine which foods should be avoided when they begin to grow mold, and which foods can be saved by scraping off the mold.

    Ban fidget spinners, say the joyless "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    Joyless and broken adults are calling for the latest kids craze to be banned along with any other tenuous reminder of those halcyon days and the carefree abandon of their own youth, it can be reported.

    Fidget spinners, small revolving toys which all children can use, are currently all the rage.

    Its the fun in their little faces I find the most intolerable, murmurs school governor and emotionally-bereft husk Alice Phipps, 46, from Berkshire.

    Every revolution of that infernal device serves as a cruel reminder of the infinite and cyclical nature of my own personal purgatory of mortgage repayments, bin-emptying duties and fruitless toil along a road ever-lengthening to abject apathy and ultimate oblivion, she revealed, in a doleful monologue.

    When I was young I had a kite, but it didnt stop me from marrying a dullard and taking a job I hate. The sooner these mindless gadgets are banned and children can get back to murdering prostitutes in GTA5, the sooner I can go back to staring coldly into the middle distance and secretly hoping for species-ending meteor strike. Oh and something about not damaging their education, I suppose.

    Rare Snapchatters draw huge crowds to Essex garden "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    Hundreds of enthusiasts flocked to the south-east of England earlier today following reports that a pair of juvenile snapchatter chicklets had been spotted playing in a garden in Essex.

    The snapchatters or children as they are sometimes called were spotted bouncing up and down on a trampoline in the back garden of a bungalow in Braintree.

    An eagle-eyed passer by had spotted the juveniles Becky and Zoe playing in the garden and posted a photo of the pair on his Facebook page.

    Within hours, people from as far away as Scotland and Cornwall had descended on the town to witness the unusual event. A video recording of the chicks playing with a Frisbee went viral within hours. It is thought the plump little juveniles may have become disorientated by the bright glowing orb in the sky and wandered into the garden looking for food.

    The Snapchatters mainly live on a diet of pizza and fish fingers but may have been drawn outside by the smell of sausages from next doors barbecue. Juvenile snapchatters are easily identified by their high-pitched scream and brightly coloured Kenzo dresses and Minna Parrika shoes. The Essex snapchatter has brightly coloured markings for the first few years of its life but their coats are gradually replaced by dowdy blacks and greys as they move into their teens.

    There are estimated to be around 11m juveniles in the UK but they are shy, retiring creatures and rarely venture outside. Once deprived of their iPhones and access to social media the creatures become agitated, hostile and confused.
    It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to watch these creatures perform in the wild said enthusiast Jason Beesley. Ive heard about this sort of thing happening but never actually seen it for myself live its the first sighting of a pair of juveniles playing in a garden for yearsthey rarely venture this far south of the back door, sticking mostly to their bedrooms and hiding under the duvet.

    Tiger Attacks and Kills Prison (Zoo) Guard (Keeper) "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    by Alice Ross / The Guardian

    A zookeeper killed by a tiger on Monday has been described as the shining light of the Cambridgeshire zoo where she worked.

    Rosa King, 33, died at Hamerton Zoo Park near Huntingdon after a tiger entered the enclosure where she was working.

    King had worked at the zoo for about 14 years, her mother Andrea said. She wouldnt have done anything else; its what she has always done. Its what she has always loved.

    A friend said she was a lovely lady who was passionate about animals.

    Garry Chisholm, a wildlife photographer in his spare time who knew King through visiting the zoo, said: Rosa wasnt just a keeper at Hamerton Zoo she was Hamerton Zoo. She was the absolute central point of it, the focal point of it. She was the shining light of it. It revolved around her.

    Police and the Magpas air ambulance service were called to the attraction at 11.15am on Monday and visitors were asked to leave the site. The zoo said it would remain closed on Tuesday while an investigation was conducted.

    The zoo said on Monday: We are sorry but our staff are too distressed to speak directly to the media as one of our colleagues was killed this morning. This appears to be a freak accident.

    A full investigation is currently under way and we hope that more details can be announced as soon as possible. At no point during the incident did any animals escape their enclosures and at no point was public safety affected in any way.

    All our thoughts and sympathies are with our colleagues, friends and families at this dreadful time.

    Speaking on Monday, Chisholm, 59, said of King: Her passion for the animals in her care was exceptional, though her favourites were undoubtedly the cheetahs, which she would refer to as her pride and joy.

    I feel privileged to have known Rosa and been able to call her a friend. She will be greatly misse...

    CNN Host Fareed Zakaria Destroys Tolerant Liberals: Freedom Of Speech And Thought Is Not Just For Warm Fuzzy Ideas That We Find Comfortable "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

    The alternative media has, for good reason, slammed CNN time and again for fabricated news stories, untruths and left-leaning propaganda.

    But the following opinion report from CNNs Fareed Zakaria is a must-watch, as it touches on the very core of the purported tolerance among liberals.

    As progressive Evergreen State College professor recently stated in an interview after demands by social justice warriors that he be fired for racism, I am troubled by what this implies about the current state of the left.

    While Americas White Left believes their policies of socialism, cultural assimilation and outright disdain for anything other than their own righteous ideologies are the only way forward, Zakaria succinctly explains that it goes against the whole idea of what Liberalism is supposed to be.

    American universities these days seem committed to every kind of diversity except for intellectual diversity Conservative voices and views, already a besieged minority, are being silenced entirely The campus thought police have gone after serious conservative thinkers like Heather McDonald and Charles Murray, as well as firebrands like Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter

    Gold-backed Currency Launches in Dubai "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

    • New gold-backed currency OneGram launched
    • Backed by one-gram of gold, uses blockchain technology
    • OneGram is first in wave of new Shariah, tech-savvy gold products
    • 2017 sees big changes for gold thanks to Shariah gold and blockchain
    • Gold investors should prepare for tightening in supply
    • Bitcoin and shariah gold demand suggest change in retail investor thinking

    Technology, shariah gold and bitcoin point to changing views

    Ramadan Kareem rang out across Dubai and the rest of the Muslim World this weekend as the holiest month in the Islamic calendar began. For 29-30 days over a billion Muslims around the world practice sawm (fasting), charity (zakat) and salat (prayer). This period is a time of spiritual reflection, increased devotion and worship as well as a time to come together with loved ones for both the break fast meal (Iftar) and pre-fast meal (Suhur).

    Ramadan is obviously observed in different ways around the Muslim world. Here in Dubai a non-Muslim will experience a place full of both celebration and reflection, with events happening every evening that are there to welcome everybody. The month also sees a number of companies launching Ramadan promotions ranging from bank accounts (free banking for six months, anyone?) to spa treatments (2-for-1 massage?) to huge packs of dates (the first food to break the fast).

    As part of the celebrations, a new gold-backed currency has been launched, here in Dubai. It is a new currency known as OneGram (OGC) backed by one gram of gold and can be used for digital payments. There is a fixed number of OGCs and digital transaction fees (minus admin costs) will be reinvested to buy more gold. According to the managers, the amount of gold backing each OGC will increase with time.

    OneGram has been launched by a private company of the same name. The company claims to offer a proof-of-stake blockchain that is further anonymized than Bitcoin. Reports state that developers employ zero-knowledge dual-key stealth addresses and ring signature protocols toward instant, untraceable, unlinkable, trustless transactions.

    Shariah Gold Standard

    In December we witnessed the launch of the Shariah Gold Standard. Announced in Bahrain by the Accounting and Auditing Organisation for Islamic Financial Institutions (AAOIFI) and the World Gold Council, the Standard is the first ever set of guidelines for the 2 billion Muslims looking to invest in gold-based financial products.

    7 Types of Scissors for Sewing That You Must Have "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

    Types of Scissors for Sewing

    Are you wondering why there are so many scissors of various sizes and sharps at your local craft or sewing store? Do you ask yourself which ones you really need and which ones you can live without?  Is buying an expensive pair a good choice or is having lots of cheaper ones a better option?

    I have made a list of my most-loved scissors that were part of my sewing journey for many, many years.  Here are the seven types of scissors that every sewist must have.  I've tried to order them in order of relative importance to the sewing task.

    We re-posted a contributor article recently that talked about how to sharpen scissors.  The topic sparked a lot of comment and even controversy so I thought it would be useful to write a bit more about sewing scissors and how you can use them.

    Dressmaker Shears

    Purchase dressmaker shears if you are planning to buy only one pair of scissors for sewing. You can use these for cutting different kinds of fabric with ease and would surely satisfy your sewing needs.  Keep them sharp and look after them and they will look after you.  Having dull scissors will give you only frustrations.

    You should generally try to buy the best (generally that means most expensive sadly) dressmaker shears that you can afford.  These are going to be your main tool in this sewing journey.  Often, the better they are, the heavier they are going to be.  You can read more about whether you should go for budget or quality sewing scissors here.

    Why Catchy Songs Get Stuck in Our Brains: New Study Explains the Science of Earworms "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    Whats your current earworm?

    For obvious yet sad reasons, Raspberry Beret and Ashes to Ashes have tunneled into my brain in the past year. Cant seem to shake em loose, though it certainly could be worse. Wander through a shopping mall (while they still exist), go to a chain restaurant or grocery store. You may pick up an unwanted passengerthe tune of a song you loathe, yet cannot for the life of you forget.

    But can the Prince/Bowie soundtrack in my mind properly be called an earworm? According to researchers at Durham University, Goldsmiths, University of London, and the University of Tubingen, this is a scientific question. Music psychologist Kelly Jakubowski of Durham University and her colleagues published a study last year titled Dissecting an Earworm: Melodic Features of Song Popularity Predict Involuntary Musical Imagery. In it, they define the properties of songs that produce involuntary recall.




    You can read the study yourself here. It begins with a summary of the previous research on the concepts of musical catchiness and song hooks, as well as the advice successful musicians often give for writing hooks that will stick with listeners for life. Its not as easy as it looks, though one of the hallmarks of a successful earworm is simplicity. As Joanna Klein writes at the New York Times, Jakubowski and her colleagues found that earworm songs tended to be fast, with a common, simple melodic structure that generally went up and down and repeated, like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

    Sarnia: Pros And Cons Of Water Fluoridation Debated "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    The former head of the University of Toronto Preventative Dentistry and former president of the Canadian Association of Dental Research says theres no cost savings to fluoridating our water.

    Dr. Hardy Limeback presented his findings to Sarnia council during its public meeting on the divisive issue Monday.

    He says according to Lambton Public Health, it costs $1.26 per resident annually.

    The cost for fluoridation, according to that $1.26 per person per year, would be about $5-million after 40 years, new equipment $1-million, cost to repair the fluorosis as estimated $4.3-million a total of $10-million over the next 40 years, says Dr. Limeback. Youre saying youre going to save a filling, per person, over the next 40 years. 100,000 people in the Lambton area, saving one filling per person, thats $10-million. Theres no cost savings. None whatsoever.

    Dr. Limeback published a paper in 1993 stating that too much fluoride was being put in drinking water, or children were getting it from too many sources and developing bone problems because of it.

    I can tell you I got a lot of flack from that, because fluoride was only suppose to be added to the drinking water to effect the teeth, says Limeback.

    He says fluoride only works topically and there are no benefit to swallowing it.

    Dr. Limeback also mentioned that boiling water for infant formula is the worst thing you could do, because he claims that boiling water concentrates fluoride.

    Lambton Medical Officer of Health Dr. Sudit Ranade says fluoride remains a recognized effective public health intervention, and is supported by the World Health Organization, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), as well as the Canadian Dental Association.

    Currently the best available evidence suggests maintaining water fluoridation here, because theres no naturally occurring supply, says Dr. Ranade.

    Ranade says he has a professional obligation to protect our health.

    I take that very, very seriously and I look at the evidence very seriously and I think the balance of evidence in this case strongly supports continued water fluoridation to the regulated levels. Its very highly regulated, weve worked with LAWSS [Lambton Area Water Supply System], and we know what their procedures are and they do a great job of regulating the water system in terms of the parameters to make sure the water is safe.

    Sarnia council went on the record in 2013 supporting the removal of fluoride from our drinking water.

    But, the 5-4 recorded vote didnt change the outcome, because legally four out of the six...

    Sarnia: City council to receive a report on fluoride in water "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    Council chambers at Sarnia city hall was bustling with talk about water fluoridation Monday, where a packed house listened as two doctors presented the pros and cons.

    At a baseline, the overwhelming majority of evidence is in favour of continuing water fluoridation, said Dr. Sudit Ranade, Lambton Countys medical officer of health

    Ranade said water fluoridation is an effective way to guard against tooth decay, provided its regulated properly.

    The practice is backed by the World Health Organization, Centres for Disease Control and many other reputable bodies.

    Its benefit in reducing tooth decay is especially poignant among children, he said, noting the data generally needs further clarification.

    Advocates also argue having fluoride in water means its available for lower-income portions of the population who might not have access otherwise.

    But fluoride is in toothpaste and a host of other things, meaning it can build up and causes fluorosis mottling in teeth, said Dr. Hardy Limeback, former head of preventative dentistry at the University of Toronto .

    One in 10 children in Canada has some degree of fluorosis, he said, noting hes researched the impact of fluoride in water for decades.

    Applied topically, fluoride has benefits, he said.

    Ingested, its a different story.

    Once it gets in your cells, its like a bomb goes off, he said, noting a study he conducted found it lowers bone strength.

    Several studies also show it affects brain chemistry and lowers intelligent quotient, he said, when it builds up beyond the recommended level.

    That happens more with people who consume more water, like athletes, kidney dialysis patients and babies on infant formula, he said

    Its my opinion, based on the research we did it can cause bodily harm, he said.

    It does not provide the dental benefits as claimed and is not cost effective at all.

    In terms of cost, he said, its basically a wash in terms of preventing cavities and fixing fluorosis.

    Sarnia last tackled the issue of water fluoridation in 2013, voting 5-4 to take it out of the water.

    But Sarnia is part of the Lambton Area Water Supply System (LAWSS) and has continued with fluoridated water since because most other member municipalities with the utility voted to continue with the practice.

    Representatives were invited to attend Mondays meeting, but none were there, said Sarnia City Coun. Andy Bruziewicz, chairperson of the LAWSS board....

    Punk Bomb Squad Perplexed By Fourth Cord "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    NEW YORK An elite bomb squad of renegade punks called to investigate a suspicious package at the Chrysler Building earlier this morning were dismissed when the device was found to contain more than three cords, according to police reports.

    Eyewitnesses report the punk bomb squad, made of several members of a local anarchist collective, arrived about three hours late and were clearly nursing hangovers.

    They all got out of this shitty van and stumbled over to this briefcase-looking thing left in the lobby. They didnt seem to be on the same page at all, and after about 10 minutes, they just gave up, said Susan Parker, an office manager in the evacuated building. One of them just smoked a cigarette the entire time and walked around the perimeter.

    After several minutes discussing their options, the punk bomb squad allegedly suggested the building contact the normie bomb squad.

    Yeah, you see these bombs with more than three cords a lot, so maybe its better if those former Marine jocks come in here with their fancy robots to diffuse this piece of shit, said punk bomb squad leader Cory Baltrus. Probably, like, 99 percent of the bombs out there have more than three cords in them. Frankly, anything more than three is just try-hard bullshit. Like, we get it, dude you can make an advanced bomb. But, like, isnt the point of bombs to send a message anyway?

    How to Calm Your Mind Without Sitting to Meditate "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Bill Lee; tiny buddha

    Our way to practice is one step at a time, one breath at a time. ~Shunryu Suzuki

    Sitting meditation has always been challenging for me; practicing mindfulness, even harder.

    As a self-confessed worrywart who has contended with constant ruminations, flashbacks, and nightmares for most of my life (more on this later), all prior attempts at being fully present and not thinking merely served as reminders of how little control I had over my mind. Then I took up hiking and stumbled upon a form of meditation that literally transformed my life.

    Initially, just being out in nature on scenic trails cultivated calmness and cleared my head. Almost immediately, I realized that hiking provided a respite from intrusive thoughts that have plagued me since I was a tyke.


    They include flashbacks of my mothers numerous suicide attempts in our decrepit Chinatown apartment, my fathers drunken rages, and recurring images of shootings, savage beatings, and other gory crime scenes from my gangbanging days.

    Ruminations include the sound of gunfire along with the replaying in my head of toxic utterances in Cantonese that translate to Giving birth to you was my biggest mistake, I wish you were never born, and my own father yelling You bastard!

    Psychosocial Disability and Legal Capacity: Dont Bargain with Human Rights "IndyWatch Feed Health"

    As one of its core missions, Mental Health Europe advocates for the rights of people living with mental ill health. We want to ensure that every person living with mental health problems or psychosocial disabilities can enjoy their full rights as citizens, have access to quality mental health care and support and can lead a meaningful life. For the past few years, the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) has been one of the most important advocacy tools in our work on advocating for a more human rights-based approach to mental health.

    For those who dont know, the UN CRPD is a binding United Nations human rights treaty for persons with disabilities, including persons with psychosocial disabilities. It was a fantastic achievement when adopted back in 2006, and its ratification by the European Union (EU) was a landmark  it was the first time a UN Human Rights Convention was signed and ratified by an inter-governmental organisation. This means that the EU and its Member States are jointly responsible for the full implementation of the Convention.

    For persons with psychosocial disabilities, one of the most fundamental rights laid out in the CRPD is the right to equal recognition before the law and legal capacity (Article 12).

    Legal capacity is about having the possibility to make our own life choices: about getting married, having children, opening a bank account, choosing where to work or signing a contract. Being denied this right can impact on many essential aspects of life and is a barrier to the enjoyment of our most basic rights. Last year, as part of our work on the UN CRPD, we produced a simple but illustrative animation clip explaining what being denied legal capacity actually means.

    Having equal recognition before the law means that all people with disabilities, including people with psychosocial disabilities, are entitled to enjoy their civil and human rights like everyone else. Many States Parties to the Convention find legal capacity one of the most challenging rights to implement in practice, and ten years after the adoption of the CRPD progress has been slow and uneven. Since much confusion remained concerning the exact scope of the application of Article 12, the UN Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities issued a General Comment on this issue in 2014 which takes a strong stance for equality, stating that: Legal capacity means that all people, including persons with disabilities, have legal standing and legal agency simply by virtue of being human and that Article 12 requires that support be provided in the exercise of legal capacity. This may seem obvious to some and radical to others in the mental health profession who routinely make de...

    I Wouldnt Suck a Dick for a Million Dollars or a Chance at Being Happy "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

    Yo dude, lets play a game: how much money would it take for you to suck another mans dick? $100? $1,000?? $1,000,000?! The once-in-a-lifetime chance to openly be the person you are so afraid of admitting you are?!

    Haha trick question! Youre so gay if you picked any of those options and Im not gay, dude. I wouldnt do it no matter what! Straight up: there is absolutely no circumstance where I would perform a gay sexual act. Not for money, not for fame, not even to accept myself.

    No way, I wouldnt suck a dick for $100 or $1,000.  I mean, sure, I expect my girlfriend to go down on me all the time for free but thats mad different because she doesnt have to come to terms with any of her deepest most repressed feelings when she does. For only $1,000 I wouldnt suck the dick of the hottest guy in the world, which isnt a thing that exists because no guys are hot because Im a guy and lets just move on.

    I wouldnt suck a dick for $1,000,000, nuh-uh. Suck a dick one time and then get paid one million dollars, no strings attached? No, thanks. Obviously there IS a string attached and its a little string called fear. Whats the point of being a millionaire if I have to spend it the whole time worrying that I might be different from other people. Is it worth $1,000,000 to admit to yourself that you have been lying about who you are for two and a half decades? NAH, DUDE!

    Related: We Spoke With a Bouncer Who Cant Wait to Choke You the Fuck out Tonight

    Nope, I wouldnt even suck a dick in exchange for true happiness coupled with the relief that I can finally throw away the hyper-heterosexual pseudo-masculine facade I have been using to belittle my friends and channel into misogyny which hurts women who have done nothing to deserve it. If you ask me, theres nothing gayer than being yourself!

    The Human Energy Field and The DNA "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Core Spirit

    Every human being has an energy field around their body. Some people call it the aura, or the luminous energy field, or simply the human energy field. The purpose of this article is not only to prove the existence of the human energy field, but also to explore the function of our DNA, the interaction between DNA and the unified field, and the influence of the human energy field on that relationship.

    Ultimately, if the science is indeed correct, this is a first step to health, healing, and possibly human evolution.

    If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
    Nikola Tesla
    Human Energy Field and DNA The Origin of Health


    In the Western world our doctors go through almost a decade of schooling, and in that time they become masters of human biology, anatomy, and physiology. They become adept at understanding disease, and diagnosing all forms of illness, yet in a large majority of cases, what is their prescription? Drugs or Surgery.

    All illness has a spiritual/energetic origin. When you do not cleanse your human energy field your energetic field becomes distorted, stagnant, and impure. It becomes extremely imbalanced and charged with low-energy vibrations which cause disease in mind, and spirit, and eventually in our bodies. But why?

    Pediatricians Say Scrap The Fruit Juice "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by Karen Foster; Prevent Disease

    Fruit juice has been marketed (and in some cases, recommended by physicians) as a healthy, natural source of vitamins and calcium. Kids like the way it tastes -- in fact, children and adolescents continue to be the highest consumers of fruit juice and juice drinks, but nutritional benefits are very questionable.

    There is no reason to include them in the diets of children less than a year old, the American Academy of Pediatrics now says.

    Steven Abrams, MD, chair of the Department of Pediatrics at Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin, co-authored the policy statement, released today. It also recommends limited consumption for older children and adolescents.

    "There's never been a question that whole fruits are the best choice for children -- adults, too, for that matter," Abrams says. "We just have to take a step back and realize that there are harmful consequences to consuming large amounts of juice by children."


    Fruit juice, defined separately from fruit-flavored and other juice drinks not made from 100 percent fruit, lacks the dietary fiber of whole fruits. Since juice can be consumed more quickly than whole fruit, a child who sips fruit juice throughout the day may fall into a pattern of consuming excessive sugar and calories and experience weight gain later in life.

    Sinister Sites: The Sansevero Chapel "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    by The Vigilant Citizen

    Local legends about the Sansevero Chapel of Naples claim that the astonishing works of art it contains are the result of sorcery and black magic. The sculptures appear impossible to create by hand, while a macabre display featuring two actual human bodies is said to be the result of ritual killings. Also, adding to the occult aura surrounding the chapel, it is filled with Masonic symbolism.

    At first glance, Capella Sansevero is your typical Italian chapel from the 17th century, tastefully filled with paintings and sculptures of a religious nature. However, a closer look at the various items in the chapel reveals that something is off about this place. Some sculptures are so organic-looking that they lead many to believe they were the result of a supernatural process. Furthermore, the enigmatic symbolism found around the chapel heavily hints to an allegorical esoteric message.


    And, when visitors climb down a few stairs, they see this:

    What the?

    The chapel has on display two actual human remains with their entire nervous system on display. Creepily dubbed Adam and Eve and even more creepily referred to as anatomical machines this bizarre display has been the subject of all kinds of occult rumors.

    Power and potential: New report on womens rights to community forests "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    Equal rights and opportunities for women are not only matters of justice and dignity. When women and girls have equal rights in law and practice, their communities and countries also benefit. Indigenous and rural women make up more than half of the 2.5 billion people who customarily own and use the worlds community lands, yet they have been largely absent from discussions of womens property rights and broader development agendas.

    The report 'Power and Potential: A Comparitive Analysis of National Laws and Regulations Concerning Women's Rights To Community Forestry' from RRI provides an unprecedented assessment of 80 legal frameworks regulating indigenous and rural womens community forest rights in 30 developing countries comprising 78 percent of the developing worlds forests. 

    The report reveals that governments are not providing equal rights and protections to indigenous and rural women, and are failing to meet their international commitments to do so. The findings also show that secure community land rights and the legal advancement of women often go hand in hand. Simply put: legal frameworks acknowledging communities as forest owners also provide the greatest protections for womens rights.

    Case Studies Accompanying the Report

    • Indonesia is one of only two countries assessed that does not guarantee women equal protection under the constitution. Inequitable laws and the expansion of agribusiness threaten the customary practices of many communities who treat women as equals in managing customary lands and resources.
    • In Liberia, the promise of Africas first female president has fallen short: across the country, community and rural women have been cut off from the decision-making processes that affect them. Many are losing the lands and resources they rely on.
    • In Peru, women are raising their voices to call attention to their unique role as forest managers, and advocate for full participation in land titling projects that would affect them.

    Watch Matthew McConaugheys Audition Tape for Richard Linklaters Dazed and Confused, the Indie Comedy That Made Him a Star "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

    In 1992, Richard Linklater faced one of the most formidable challenges in the life of any successful filmmaker: following up on his breakthrough. The previous year he'd become an art-house star with Slacker, an examination of the various lives aimlessly but amusingly lived at the Generation-X periphery of Austin, Texas, a film whose deliberately wandering form perfectly matched its substance. That got him enough of a profile to command the relatively huge budget of $8 million (versus Slacker's $23,000) to make Dazed and Confused, the story of a bunch of Austin teenagers on the last day of high school in 1976. While the movie hardly turned blockbuster, it did help solidify Linklater's place among the American auteurs and almost accidentally launched the career of one of today's biggest movie stars.

    Matthew McConaughey stole Dazed and Confused's show, as many critics and fans saw it, as David Wooderson, an early-twentysomething who still prefers the company of high-schoolers. You can watch a piece of his original audition tape, made available by the Criterion Collection, at the top of the post. "He is a character we're all too familiar with in the movies," wrote the Austin Chronicle's Marjorie Baumgarten, "but McConaughey nails this guy without a hint of condescension or whimsy, claiming this character for all time as his own."

    The resistance of Peruvian coffee "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

    PUNO, Peru - In November 2016, a bus traveling to the district of Putina Punco in southern Peru, deep in the forest and hours from the nearest city, was attacked by thugs with ski masks and long-range weapons. They stole cell phones and all the money that the passengers were going to spend in the traditional Sunday market. There were no deaths or injuries, but the attack left residents of the valley (who are unaccustomed to the sound of gunfire) alarmed. Typically, this part of the country is known for selling citrus and producing some of the best coffee in the world. But things are changing in the southern Peruvian Amazon. *** Seventy-year-old coffee grower Teodoro Calle is just over 5 feet tall and his arms and legs look like they are made of solid rock. He goes up and down the mountains like a 20-year-old boy. He pulls a nearly 90-pound coffee trolley through mud and stones with the same ease as a lady pushing a cart at the supermarket. He has lived in the Sandia Valley since he was 13 years old. He finished school when he was 30 and received his law degree when he was 70. He is an example of perseverance. Calle remembers when they founded the Coffee Cooperative San Juan del Oro and then created the Central Agricultural Cooperative of the Valleys of Sandia (CECOVASA) back in the 1960s, to collect and commercialize their coffee without intermediaries.

    Indian Buddhist Master Explains How to Conquer Negative Thinking in 5 Simple Steps "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

    I think we can all agree that its easy to fall prey to negative thinking. As much as we try to follow the advice of staying positive, those negative and worrying thoughts creep in and take hold of our mindset.

    Theres a lot of advice about how to combat negative thinking, but I find the most powerful to be the wisdom offered by the Indian Buddhist Master Paramahansa Yogananda.

    We distilled his wisdom in 5 easy steps. The wisdom is powerful because it encourages you to face your inner demons rather than run away from them.

    It gets better:

    By following this advice, youll be taking responsibility for your own happiness. Who doesnt want that?

    Step 1: Face up to your attachments and release them

    Attachments keep you ever fearful. The more a persons body-consciousness expands to include such things as a sense of possessions, a concern for ones reputation, a sense of personal power or importance the greater the likelihood of feeling fear. Fearlessness, on the other hand, comes from releasing those attachments: the desire for personal importance; the desire for power or control over anything or anyone; the desire to be well thought of and respected; attachment to possessions; attachment to bodily health and well-being; and, finally, identification of ones self with the body. Fearlessness comes with perfect non-attachment. It is a natural attitude for those who feel they have nothing to protect.

    Step 2: Break the insidious hold of worrying thoughts

    Shake off your worries by going on worry fasts. Go on short worry fasts three times a day to begin with. Take an hour in the morning, an hour at noon, and three hours in the evening. Absolutely refuse to allow a single worry thought to enter your mind during these periods. Then extend the period to a whole day; a week, and then a month. Soon you will have broken the insidious hold of worry thoughts.

    Step 3: Surround yourself with joyful people who l...
