U.S. Dietary Supplement Use On Rise, CRN Research Finds "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Tucson, AZ Three in four Americans (76%) say they take dietary supplements, an increase of 5 percentage points from last year, according to the Council for Responsible Nutritions annual survey of consumers. Top-line findings were released by Survey Subcommittee Chair Nikki Yas at CRNs Ascend conference at The Ritz-Dove Mountain.

The survey of 2,000 consumers conducted Aug. 24-28 by Ipsos Research also found an 87% confidence level in vitamins/minerals, 64% confidence in specialty supplements, 63% confidence in herbals/botanicals, 53% confidence in sports nutrition and 45% in weight management.

Trust in the industry was highest among those ages 18 34 with 80% expressing trust. Some 79% of the 35 54 age group expressed trust and the trust number dropped to 69% for those 55 and older.

In terms of use, 41% reported they take supplements regularly and take a variety of vitamins, minerals and/or herbal products or specialty supplements. Only 13% of respondents said they have never taken a supplement. Meanwhile, regular use among those 55 or older at 69% is at its highest level since 2010.

When it comes to purchasing supplements, 58% of supplement users identified price as the most important factor. Yas cautioned against assuming that means low cost, as it may simply mean right price and said further research would be done next year on this quesiton.

The supplement facts box was an important factor to the buying decision of 40% of the respondents. Only 34% considered a quality seal on the bottle most important (i.e. NSF, UL, USP); 33% considered the number of servings in the bottle; and 33% looked for specific branded or generic ingredient(s).

Vitamin D and magnesium registered upward trending consumption and in one quirky twist, fiber intake was up in the youngest age group, but declined in the 55 and older population.

Vitamins rank as the most frequently consumed supplement with 75% of U.S. adults saying they take them. Specialty supplements are consumed by 38%, herbal botanicals by 29%, sports nutrition by 22% and weight management by 15%. A more specific breakdown by supplement type and reasons for taking them are shown in the charts below.

The results shows that astragalosides and curcumin could lower the abnormal blood glucose levels and GSP levels. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Saudi Pharm J. 2017 May ;25(4):477-481. Epub 2017 Apr 28. PMID: 28579878 Abstract Title:  The effect of different proportions of astragaloside and curcumin on DM model of mice. Abstract:  This paper aims to study the effects of different proportion of astragaloside and curcumin on STZ induced Diabetes Mellitus (DM) model of mice, and to select a better proportion of active components. Its ultimate purpose is to lay a basis for the follow-up research on astragaloside-curcumin capsule. Increase-decrease baseline geometric proportion design method and comprehensive performance evaluation utilised to study the effect of different proportion of astragaloside and curcumin on DM mice models, which have an intravenous tail injection of STZ. The proportions of the two components are 10:0, 8:2, 7:3, 6:4, 5:5, 4:6, 3:7, 2:8, 0:10 respectively. And we will screen out the optimal composition. Blood glycated serum protein (GSP), hepatic glycogen and insulin tested to observe pathological changes in the pancreas. The mice DM model was copied successfully. Compared with the model group, groups treated with the metformin and with different proportions of astragaloside and curcumin help lower the blood glucose levels and GSP levels, increase glycogen stores of model mice by different degrees, and avoid pathological changes of pancreas in the model mice. The ratio of 3:7 was selected as the optimal one, based on the comprehensive performance evaluation method, followed by the ratio of 4:6. The optimal proportion of DM models is 3:7, followed by 4:6. The ratio of total astragaloside and curcumin can lower blood glucose levels, GSP levels, promote the formation of glycogen, and improve the pathological changes of pancreas in the model mice.

On Scene Investigator BANNED From Mandalay Bay, MGM, For Life After Uncovering Shocking Details Surrounding Las Vegas Attack "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Shepard Ambellas at Intellihub.

The site of the Route 91 music festival mass shooting is seen outside the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas

A comprehensive investigation with pictures from inside the Mandalay Bay after the Las Vegas shooting leads to investigator being banned by the hotel itself. 

An independent investigator working on the Las Vegas shooting case was staying at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino when he was abruptly and formally trespassed from all MGM Resorts International Properties, all within 24 hours of his check-in.

The investigator, who wishes to remain anonymous, goes by @Nick_Falco on Twitter and has posted a series of tweets confirming his claims that he was indeed banned from the property for life by MGM management around 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening.

Falco told Intellihub exclusively that he received a phone call from the front desk of Mandalay Bay shortly before 7:30 p.m. in which a female operator instructed him to answer his hotel room door where four men (two armed guards, a security guy, and an FBI agent) simultaneously met him. Falco was then told to pack up his belongings before the FBI agent conducted a subsequent inspection of his room.

Soon after the independent investigator says that he was escorted over to the main entrance of the Mandalay Bay where a security guard stood him in front of a camera and verbally read him the trespass.

Astragaloside IV may represent an alternative therapeutic approach for the treatment of patients with allergic rhinitis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2017 Aug ;16(2):1207-1215. Epub 2017 Jun 6. PMID: 28586019 Abstract Title:  Protective effects of astragaloside IV against ovalbumin-induced allergic rhinitis are mediated by T-box protein expressed in T cells/GATA-3 and forkhead box protein 3/retinoic acid-related orphan nuclear receptort. Abstract:  3-O--D-xylopyranosyl-6-O--D-glucopyranosyl-cycloastragenol, or Astragaloside IV (AST), is one of the major active ingredients isolated from Astragalus membranaceous with distinct pharmacological effects, and possesses anti-inflammatory, immunoregulatory and antifibrotic properties. However, the effects of AST on allergic rhinitis remain to be elucidated. The present study aimed to examine the effects of AST on immunoglobulin (Ig) Emediated allergic reactions in vivo, by using a mouse model of allergic rhinitis established via repetitive sensitization and intranasal challenge with ovalbumin(OVA). Intragastric administration of AST (25 mg/kg or 50 mg/kg) or dexamethasone (DEX; 3 mg/kg) significantly alleviated the inflammatory response, nasal symptoms and mucosa remodeling, and decreased the serum levels of OVAspecific IgE in allergic mice. Furthermore, treatment with AST or DEXsignificantly suppressed the mRNA and protein expression levels of the transcription factor GATA3 and retinoic acid receptorrelated orphan nuclear receptor (ROR)t in tissue samples isolated from the spleen and nasal mucosa of mice with allergic rhinitis. Conversely, mRNA and protein expression levels of Tbox protein expressed in T cells (Tbet) and forkhead box protein 3 (Foxp3) were upregulated in the spleen and nasal mucosa of mice with allergic rhinitis following treatment with AST or DEX, and spleen protein levels of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 followeda similar trend. In addition, treatment with AST was associated with fewer adverse events compared with treatment with DEX. The present results suggested that treatment with AST may attenuate OVAinduced allergic rhinitis via regulating the expression of the transcription factors GATA3, RORt, Tbet and Foxp3, which commit T helper cells to the Th1 phenotype. Therefore, AST may represent an alternative therapeutic approach for the treatment of patients with allergic rhinitis.

The Leveraxe- by Vipukirves "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

The Leveraxe is supposedly a new innovative way to split wood. It is supposed to make things easier than using a traditional axe. I have read a few articles and watched a few videos. The demo video by the manufacture had me questioning the axe. I noticed that they were cutting at the edges which leave you with smaller blocks of wood; this seems to be what the designer was aiming for. Plus when using this, one has to put their wood in a tire. After striking the wood, the axe tilts and helps...

Maximum Devastation Homeland Security Chief Says ISIS Is Planning To Bring Down Planes In New 9/11 Style Attack "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

terrorist-isis

ISIS is currently plotting a new 9/11 style attack that would once again see American planes brought down in order to cause maximum devastation warned acting Homeland Security Chief Elaine Duke.

Speaking during a stop at the US embassy in London, Duke claimed that recent intelligence has shown that the terror group wants a big explosion like that of 9/11 rather than the horrific but geopolitically minor attacks seen in recent years.

The terrorist organizations, be it ISIS or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11 . They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that, Duke said before going on to also warn that ISIS has in no means abandoned smaller scale attacks.

However, in the interim they need to keep their finances flowing and they need to keep their visibility high and they need to keep their members engaged, so they are using small plots and they are happy to have small plots.

Duke went on to add that the increase in smaller scale terror such as van or knife attacks doesnt mean the group has given up on aviation.

Creating terror is their goal and so a van attack, a bladed weapon attack, causes terror and continues to disrupt the world but does not mean theyve given up on a major aviation plot.

According to the UKs Mirror, Duke went on to say:

Mrs Duke went on to add that terrorists could use a laptop to blow up an aircraft and is just one of many threats facing airlines all over the world.

She added that it was important to target terrorists in their homes, keep them moving and fearful of attack, therefore allowing them less time to sit and work on bigger plots.

She said: We have worked on some strong measures that we cant talk about. We are trying to play the away game and that is working against them in their terrorist safe havens and homes.

We do have some terrorist groups on the move, you just saw the take-over of Raqqa and so if we can keep them declining and moving they have less time to sit and prepare.

In the past most in the alternative media would question whether information coming form the homeland security chief should be trusted so despite the fact that Donald Trump is obviously president there always runs the risk that...

Astragaloside-IV alleviates heat-induced inflammation. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cell Physiol Biochem. 2017 ;42(2):824-837. Epub 2017 Jun 23. PMID: 28641278 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside-IV Alleviates Heat-Induced Inflammation by Inhibiting Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress and Autophagy. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Thermal injury is the main cause of pulmonary disease in stroke after burn and can be life threatening. Heat-induced inflammation is an important factor that triggers a series of induces pathological changes. However, this mechanism underlying heat-induced inflammation in thermal inhalation injury remains unclear. Studies have revealed that astragaloside-IV (AS-IV), a natural compound extracted from Astragalus membranaceus, has protective effects in inflammatory diseases. Here, we investigated whether the protective effects of AS-IV occur because of the suppression of heat-induced endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and excessive autophagy Methods: AS-IV was administered to Wistar rats after thermal inhalation injury and 16HBE140-cells were treated with AS-IV. TNF-, IL-6, and IL-8 levels were determined by ELISA and real-time PCR. ER stress and autophagy were determined by western blot. Autophagic flux was measured by recording the fluorescence emission of the fusion protein mRFP-GFP-LC3 by dynamic live-cell imaging.RESULTS: AS-IV had protective effects against heat-induced reactive oxygen species production and attenuated ER stress. AS IV alleviated heat-induced excessive autophagy in vitro and in vivo. Excessive autophagy was attenuated by the PERK inhibitor GSK2656157 and eIF2 siRNA, suggesting that heat stress-induced autophagy can activate the PERK-eIF2 pathway. Beclin 1 and Atg5 siRNAs inhibited the upregulation of the inflammatory cytokines TNF-, IL-6, and IL-8 after heat exposure.CONCLUSIONS: Thus, AS-IV may attenuate inflammatory responses by disrupting the crosstalk between autophagy and the PERK-eIF2 pathway and may be an ideal agent for treating inflammatory pulmonary diseases.

The Power of Millet 3 Ways "IndyWatch Feed Health"

millet

By Heather CallaghanEditor

When people think of incorporating non-gluten grains into their diet, they might be quick to grab some quinoa. But dont forget about millet!

Oh, did you think it was just bird feed? Well, dont let the birds hog it all.

Its an inexpensive, nutritional powerhouse that is actually way more versatile than quinoa.

Millet is a small, almost perfectly round, yellow grain. It may have a slight nuttiness or porridge-like quality to it. It is loaded with B-vitamins that help with nails, hair, stress and liver function. It is also packed with minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, and more. It also contains healthy fats. It warms up my hands and feet which tells me it helps my metabolism. Its the good kind of carb that can support your thyroid, unlike harmful refined flour products.

Millet is more versatile than quinoa, in my opinion, because it makes for a better sweet meal if you choose. I never thought quinoa could pull it off much more of a savory grain, if you ask me.

Millet can be mad...

Student-Made Tiny House Represents New American Dream "IndyWatch Feed Health"

 

College students created this beautiful tiny home.

Every year, students from California State University, Sacramentos STORC school get to work on projects that pave a way to a more sustainable and technological future. Most years, students working in the the Sustainable Technology Optimization Research Center (STORC) build a tiny house from scratch, which is an incredible feat. Even more impressive is their commitment to create the house with the latest technologies to make sure that the structure uses as little energy as possible.

This year, students from STORC built a beautiful tiny house that includes solar panels to power the electricity as well as a solar-powered water heater to heat the 20-gallon water tank.

The 400-square-foot house, which has wheels affixed to it for mobile functioning, allows dwellers to live as off-the-grid as possible as they embark on their self-selected journey. The solar panels can be seen on the roof as well as on one side of the structure so that ample electricity is generated.

Astragaloside IV inhibits progression of glioma cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2017 Sep 9 ;491(1):98-103. Epub 2017 Jul 11. PMID: 28709870 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV inhibits progression of glioma via blocking MAPK/ERK signaling pathway. Abstract:  Glioma is one of the most common primary brain tumors in adults with a high mortality rate and relapse rate. Thus, finding better effective approaches to treat glioma has become very urgent. Astragaloside IV (AS-IV), the major active triterpenoid in Radix Astragali, has shown anti-tumorigenic properties in certain cancers. However, its role in glioma remains unclear. Here, we studied the effects of AS-IV on glioma in vitro and in vivo, and explored the underlying mechanisms. Our results revealed that AS-IV dose-dependently inhibited the proliferation of U251 cells in vitro and attenuated tumor growth in vivo. In addition, the migration and invasion ability of U251 cell has been suppressed in presence of AS-IV. The levels of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA), Ki67, matrix metallopeptidase (MMP) -2, MMP-9 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) were decreased significantly by the treatment of different concentrations AS-IV. Furthermore, AS-IV also significantly weakened the activation of Mitogen-activated protein kinase/Extracellular regulated protein kinase (MAPK/ERK) signaling pathway in vitro and in vivo. Taken together our study has identified a novel function of AS-IV and provided a molecular basis for AS-IV potential applications in the treatment of glioma and other cancers.

Think like a Green Beret vs. Doomsday Prepper "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This article is a few years old but an interesting read. The author IMO took liberties to prove his point. I think having Tommy the Tool in an underground BOL with children was losing scenario from the beginning. The author also makes it sound easy to organize a neighborhood (400 people he says) which is not that easy. Most people will be in a panic so implanting the Green Beret way of doing things would be quite a task so establishing relationships prior to an event would be vital.

The theory is presented that migraines are an integrated defensive, neuroprotective response to brain oxidative stress. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Headache. 2017 Oct 16. Epub 2017 Oct 16. PMID: 29034461 Abstract Title:  The Migraine Attack as a Homeostatic, Neuroprotective Response to Brain Oxidative Stress: Preliminary Evidence for a Theory. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Previous research has suggested that migraineurs show higher levels of oxidative stress (lipid peroxides) between migraine attacks and that migraine triggers may further increase brain oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is transduced into a neural signal by the TRPA1 ion channel on meningeal pain receptors, eliciting neurogenic inflammation, a key event in migraine. Thus, migraines may be a response to brain oxidative stress.RESULTS: In this article, a number of migraine components are considered: cortical spreading depression, platelet activation, plasma protein extravasation, endothelial nitric oxide synthesis, and the release of serotonin, substance P, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Evidence is presented from in vitro research and animal and human studies of ischemia suggesting that each component has neuroprotective functions, decreasing oxidant production, upregulating antioxidant enzymes, stimulating neurogenesis, preventing apoptosis, facilitating mitochondrial biogenesis, and/or releasing growth factors in the brain. Feedback loops between these components are described. Limitations and challenges to the model are discussed.CONCLUSIONS: The theory is presented that migraines are an integrated defensive, neuroprotective response to brain oxidative stress.

These results indicated that astragaloside reversed the drug resistance of 5 fluorouracil resistant Bel 7402/FU cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2017 Sep ;16(3):2761-2766. Epub 2017 Jul 5. PMID: 28713943 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV downregulates the expression of MDR1 in Bel7402/FU human hepatic cancer cells by inhibiting the JNK/cJun/AP1 signaling pathway. Abstract:  Previous studies demonstrated that astragaloside IV (ASIV) is a potential Pglycoprotein (Pgp)mediated multidrug resistance (MDR) reversal agent through mechanisms involving downregulation of the gene expression of mdr1. In order to investigate whether the cJun Nterminal kinase (JNK) signaling pathway is involved in the mechanism underlying ASIVinduced downregulated the expression of mdr1, the present study used 5fluorouracilresistant Bel7402/FU human hepatic cancer cells as target cells. ASIV (0.1 mM) decreased the protein expression of phosphorylated (p)JNK and pcJun in the Bel7402/FU cells, as determined using western blot analysis. Treatment with the JNK pathway inhibitor, SP600125, at a concentration of 11 M, decreased the mRNA expression levels of mdr1 and Pgp, as determined using reverse transcriptionquantitative polymerase chain reaction and western blot analyses, and similar effects were observed following exposure to ASIV. Furthermore, electrophoretic mobility shift assays demonstrated that the DNAbinding activity of activator protein1 (AP1) was decreased by 0.1 mM ASIV or 11 M SP600125. Flow cytometric analysis revealed that 0.1 mM ASIV or 11 M SP600125 increased the intracellularaccumulation of fluorescent Pgp substrates, including rhodamine 123. Taken together, these results indicated that ASIV reversed the drug resistance of Bel7402/FU cells by downregulating the expression of mdr1 via inhibition of the JNK/cJun/AP1 signaling pathway.

Princess Rkczi by Nicolas de Largillire "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

On the 20th of October 1656, the French Rococo painter Nicolas de Largillire was born in Paris. Brought up in Antwerp and Paris, he also lived and worked in London, gaining the admiration of kind Charles II, then James II, as well as the French king Louis XIV, all of whom he painted, alongside various men of culture from Le Brun to Voltaire. A well-respected leader of the French Academy, his style of painting was the Rococo, an 18th century French trend at its height in the 1730s. In painting, and specifically in portraiture, artists focused on the abundant lifestyles of the aristocracy. Their works were whimsical, using pastels and flowing ornate design in the backgrounds and captured the fine, delicate features of upper class women in lavish clothing, often unmasking the impurity in their behaviour; this set the Rococo apart from the Baroque, which still mainly focused on religious and state subjects.

The National Gallery in London has an intriguing portrait of Princess Rkczi (c. 1720) by Largillire, the once 15-year old child bride of Rkczi Ferenc II, the Hungarian leader of the uprising against the Habsburgs, Prince of Transylvania, and great national hero of Hungary. From celebrated and loved young princess, Charlotte Amalies life took an unfortunate turn caused by the political activism of her husband. She had a fraught life in exile, fleeing alongside her husband, taking refuge in Poland, then Russia and France. This new life was humiliatin...

Astragaloside IV protects against apoptosis in human degenerative chondrocytes through autophagy activation. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2017 Sep ;16(3):3269-3275. Epub 2017 Jul 14. PMID: 28714008 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV protects against apoptosis in human degenerative chondrocytes through autophagy activation. Abstract:  Increased cell apoptosis in chondrocytes is a feature of degenerative cartilage. Astragaloside IV (AST) has been proven to possess an antiarthritic effect by preventing interleukin (IL)1induced cartilage damage. However, the role of AST on chondrocyte apoptosis and its underlying mechanism remains unknown. In the present study, degenerative chondrocytes isolated from patients with osteoarthritis (OA) were subjected to AST and IL1 treatment. Results indicated that ASTprotected against chondrocyte apoptosis induced by IL1. Western blotting indicated that AST increased the protein expression of LC3II/I and decreased P62/SQSTM1 expression, which suggested that AST upregulated autophagy activity in chondrocytes. Fluorescent protein GFPLC3 analysis and transmission electron microscopy observation confirmed that autophagy was promoted by AST. In contrast, after autophagy inhibited by 3methyladenine, chondrocyte apoptosis was further increased under IL1 treatment. Ultimately, rapamycin was used as a positive control, whose results confirmed that rapamycinmediated autophagy also decreased chondrocyte apoptosis induced by IL1. In conclusion, these results suggested that ASTmediated autophagy serves an antiapoptotic role in chondrocytes, which may aid the development of novel therapeutic approaches for OA treatment.

Astragaloside attenuated cisplatin-mediated renal injury. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Free Radic Res. 2017 Jul-Aug;51(7-8):669-683. Epub 2017 Aug 11. PMID: 28750561 Abstract Title:  Renoprotective mechanisms of Astragaloside IV in cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury. Abstract:  Nephrotoxicity remains a serious adverse effect of cisplatin chemotherapy, limiting its clinical usage. Numerous studies show that oxidative stress and inflammation are closely associated with cisplatin-induced renal damage. Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) has been found to possess antioxidant and anti-inflammation functions. Therefore, we investigated the potential curative effects of AS-IV against cisplatin-induced renal injury and the possible cellular mechanism for activity, both in vitro and in vivo. We found that pretreatment of HK-2 cells with AS-IV could mitigate cisplatin-induced cell damage caused by oxygen-free radicals and the inflammatory response, as evidenced by reduced formation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and inflammatory cytokines. AS-IV improved cisplatin-induced renal dysfunction and histopathological injury in mice. Additionally, AS-IV enhanced the activities of total superoxide dismutase (T-SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px), and catalase (CAT). It also inhibited cisplatin-induced overproduction of kidney injury molecule-1 (KIM-1), malondialdehyde (MDA), tumour necrosis factor- (TNF-), and interleukin-1 (IL-1) in kidney tissues. We found that the protective effects of AS-IV occurred via activation of the nuclear factor-erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) proteins and inhibition of nuclear factor-appaB (NF-B) activation. Further, small interfering RNA (siRNA) knockdown of Nrf2 abrogated the protective effects of AS-IV against cisplatin-induced oxidative stress and blocked the inhibitory effects of AS-IV on cisplatin-induced NF-B activation and inflammatory cytokine production. In conclusion, our data suggested that AS-IV attenuated cisplatin-mediated renal injury, and these protective effects might be due to inhibition of both oxidative damage and inflammatory response via activation of Nrf2 system and suppression of NF-B activation.

Investment in technology vital to counter rising crime in TV shows "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Rising levels of crime in police and legal dramas can only be tackled with more investment in technology, particularly for bobbies on the beat and detectives who look like they are straight out of central casting, TV executives argued today.

Increases in murders, violence and psychologically motivated crimes that are revealed over 5 episodes continue to plague the sector, sighed Mike Jones, one TV executive. New series of Midsomer Murders and Death in Paradise arent going to help either.

Too much detective work is undermined by basic technology problems, continued Jones. Regular mobile phone black spots in disused warehouses just when officers need to make a call for back up is a prevalent problem, as is unpredictable phone batteries that run out just as police officers are revealing to colleagues where the criminal has hid the kidnap victim before coming back to lifeto make an annoyingly loud ring when officers are trying to hide from a villain in a scrapyard.

Executives have called for a rollout of the latest technologies used in Bull and the last series of the Blacklist to give detectives a fighting chance of solving crimes before the 3rd advert break, a crucial industry benchmark. Criminal gangs in TV crime dramas will also be given higher spec computers so that detectives will be able to download all the vital files onto a memory stick in no more than a 30 second segment, well before the crook returns to the conveniently empty room.

Until these changes come in executives are advising detectives looking for fast broadband speeds to head for the data analytics and behavioural science teams, present now in every single crime drama. These guys are a bit geeky, with off the wall hobbies and an unrequited love for their bosses, noted Jones. However, they also have instantaneous access to all information about everyone in the world and dont have to worry about data protection or freedom of information protocols, just like the Met in the good old days.

PMID:  PLoS One. 2017 ;12(8):e0182558. Epub 2017 Aug 2. PMID: 28767702 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV ameliorates diabetic nephropathy by modulating the mitochondrial quality control network. Abstract:  The aim of this study was to investigate the effect and possible mechanism of Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on retarding the progression of diabetic nephropathy (DN) in a type 2 diabetic animal model, db/db mice. Eight-week-old male db/db diabetic mice and their nondiabetic littermate control db/m mice were used in the present study. AS-IV was administered to the db/db mice by adding it to standard feed at a dose of 1g/kg for 12 weeks. Renal injury was assessed by urinary albumin excretion (UAE) and Periodic acid-Schiff staining. The protein expression levels of mitochondrial quality-control-associated proteins were evaluated using Western blotting and immunohistochemical staining analysis. At the end of the experiment, db/db mice showed overt renal injury, as evidenced by increased UAE, increased urinary N-acetyl--D-glucosaminidase (NAG), expansion of mesangial matrix, and increased renal tubular area. AS-IV administration significantly reduced UAE and urinary NAG and ameliorated the renal pathologic injury seen in db/db mice. Furthermore, the expression of dynamin-related protein 1 (Drp-1), mitochondrialfission protein 1 (Fis-1), and mitochondrial fission factor (MFF), the main regulators of mitochondrial fission, was significantly increased in db/db mice. Moreover, PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1)/Parkin-mediated mitophagy was abnormally activated in db/db mice. AS-IV significantly reduced renal Drp-1, Fis-1, and MFF expression and downregulated PINK1/Parkin-mediated mitophagy in db/db mice. However, mitochondrial biogenesis and mitochondrial fusion-associated protein levels were not significantly different between db/m and db/db mice in our study, with or without AS-IV treatment. In conclusion, administration of AS-IV could retard DN progression in type 2 diabetes mice, which might be associated with restoration of the mitochondrial quality control network.

Ecological Armageddon: Plummeting insect populations could ravage life on Earth "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The stark decline in insect populations has placed the world on a path to ecological Armageddon, according to a study.

Researchers from Raboud University in the Netherlands made the discovery following a decades-long study of nature reserves across Germany.

Since 1989, the team has been collecting insect samples across 63 sites using mesh tents known as malaise traps. After measuring each years samples by weight, scientists found that the average fell by more than 75 percent over the 27-year period. During the summer months, the fall was measured at around 82 percent.

Insects are essential for life on Earth as they act as pollinators and prey for other species. Increased urbanization, habitat loss and pesticide use are being blamed for the declining population.

Caspar Hallmann, a member of the research team at Radboud, described the figures as very alarming.

Massive criminal conspiracy unravels: Hillary Clinton took $145M from Russians to sell out the U.S. uranium supply to Americas enemies (and the FBI knew all along) "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Image: Massive criminal conspiracy unravels: Hillary Clinton took $145M from Russians to sell out the U.S. uranium supply to Americas enemies (and the FBI knew all along)

(Natural News) We have truly reached the point in American history where criminal indictments need to be immediately leveled against James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Robert Mueller and a dozen other high-ranking officials who are now known to have been complicit in one of the most treasonous criminal cover-ups in American history.

Although the entire left-wing media is running a campaign of complete silence on this story, the rest of the media is now widely reporting that, under President Obama, the FBI had documented an exhaustive trail of corruption, bribery and treason that involved Hillary Clinton, State Department corruption and Russia-linked mining companies that acquired rights to U.S. uranium supplies. This truth was described in great detail in the book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer, and now evidence is emerging that further confirms the depth of collusion, corruption, money laundering and treason that Hillary Clinton actively pursued to collect $145 million from Russia-linked sources.

According to The Hill:

Before the Obama administration approved a controversial deal in 2010 giving Moscow control of a large swath of American uranium, the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that Russian nuclear industry officials were engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering designed to grow Vladimir Putins atomic energy business inside the United States, according to government documents and interviews.

They also obtained an eyewitness account backed by documents indicating Russian nuclear officials had routed millions of dollars to the U.S. designed to benefit former President Bill Clintons charitable foundation during the time Secretary of State Hillary Clinton served on...

Astragaloside IV improves bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Pharmacol. 2017 ;8:513. Epub 2017 Aug 8. PMID: 28848434 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV Improves Bleomycin-Induced Pulmonary Fibrosis in Rats by Attenuating Extracellular Matrix Deposition. Abstract:  Pulmonary fibrosis is a devastating lung disorder with mysterious pathogenesis and limited treatment options. It is well-recognized that the uncontrolled proliferation of lung fibroblasts and differentiation of fibroblasts into myofibroblasts excessively produce extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins which contribute to the fibrosis change of the lungs. Thus, blocking ECM accumulation would delay fibrosis progression. In this study, we observed the effects of astragaloside IV (ASV) (10 mg/kg/d) on ECM proteins in bleomycin (BLM, 5 mg/kg)-treated rats. Our results showed that ASV not only ameliorated BLM-induced body weight loss, lung coefficient increase, histological changes and collagen secretion, but also reduced the levels of type III collagen (Col-III) in lung homogenate, laminin (LN) and hyaluronic acid (HA) in serum, as well as hydroxyproline (HYP) in lung tissue. Besides, ASV significantly down-regulated the levels of high-mobility group box1 (HMGB1) in serum and lung tissue, and inhibited the up-regulated expression of-SMA (marker of myofibroblasts) in the lungs. Taken together, these findings indicate that ASV attenuates BLM-induced ECM deposition, supporting its use as a promising candidate to treat lung fibrosis.

Administration of astragaloside containing fluid led to a dramatic improvement in survival following crush syndrome. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Ann Intensive Care. 2017 Sep 4 ;7(1):90. Epub 2017 Sep 4. PMID: 28871521 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside-IV prevents acute kidney injury and inflammation by normalizing muscular mitochondrial function associated with a nitric oxide protective mechanism in crush syndrome rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Crush syndrome (CS) is a serious medical condition characterized by muscle cell damage resulting from decompression after compression (i.e., ischemia/reperfusion injury). A large number of CS patients develop cardiac failure, kidney dysfunction, and systemic inflammation, even when fluid therapy is administered. We evaluated whether the administration of astragaloside-IV (AS)-containing fluid improved survival by preventing kidney and muscular mitochondrial dysfunction in a rat model of CS.RESULTS: The CS model was generated by subjecting anesthetized rats to bilateral hind limb compression with a rubber tourniquet for 5 h. Rats were then randomly divided into four groups: (1) sham; (2) CS with no treatment; (3) CS with normal saline treatment; and (4) CS with normal saline + 10 mg/kg AS. AS-containing fluid improved kidney function by improving shock and metabolic acidosis in CS rats. In addition, there was areduction in oxidative damage. The attenuation of hyperkalemia was significantly related to improving muscle injury via preventing mitochondrial dysfunction. Moreover, this mitochondria protection mechanism was related to the nitric oxide (NO) generated by activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase, which provided an anti-oxidative and anti-inflammatory effect.CONCLUSIONS: Treatment with AS-containing fluid led to a dramatic improvement in survival following CS because of direct and indirect anti-oxidative effects in the kidney, and improvements in mitochondrial dysfunction and inflammation owing to AS acting as an NO donor in injured muscle.

Glenn Miller Declassified "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Author:  Dennis M. Spragg
Genre:  Biography

Hardcover; Digital Book
ISBN #:  9781612348957
Potomac Books
408 Pages
September 1, 2017



On December 15, 1944, Maj. Alton Glenn Miller, commanding officer of the Army Air Force Band (Special) boarded a plane in England bound for France with Lt. Col. Norman Francis Baessell.  Somewhere over the English Channel the plane vanished.  No trace of the aircraft or its occupants has ever been found.  To this day Miller, Baessell, and the pilot, John Robert Stuart Morgan, are classified as missing in action.

Weaving together cultural and military history, Glenn Miller Declassified tells the story of the musical legend Miller and his military career as commanding officer of the Army Air Force Band during World War II/  After a brief assignment to the Army Specialist Corps, Miller was assigned to the Army Air Forces Training Command and soon thereafter to Supreme Headquarters, Allied Expeditionary Force, in the UK.  Later that year Miller and his band were to be transferred to Paris to expand the Allied Expeditionary Forces Programme, but Miller never made it.

Miller's disappearance resulted in numerous conspiracy theories, especially since much of the information surround his military service had been classified, restricted, or, in some cases, lost.  Dennis M. Spragg has gained unprecedented access to the Miller family archives as well as military and government documents to lay such theories to rest and to demonstrate the lasting legacy and importance of Miller's life, career, and service to his country.


When I first saw this book, I was somewhat excited to read the story of Glenn Miller.  As a great fan of Big Bands, and Glenn's own 'swing' music, it was a chance to read more about the mystery surrounding his death.

When he was lost over the English Channel, no trace was ever found of the plane carrying him or the three occupants.  I believed by the title - Glenn Miller Declassified - I would learn something new.  Alas, such was not the case.

The book, while quite a nice size, is full of technical information only interes...

Astragaloside suppressed gastric inflammation caused by alcohol. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int Immunopharmacol. 2017 Nov ;52:211-217. Epub 2017 Sep 21. PMID: 28942222 Abstract Title:  The effect of Astragaloside IV on ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats: Involvement of inflammation. Abstract:  The present study aimed to investigate the potential protective effects of Astragaloside IV (AS-IV) against ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats. The animals were divided into 7 groups and pretreated with vehicle, various doses of AS-IV (1,2 and 4mg/kg, i.p.) or omeprazole (40mg/kg), 75min later, the gastric mucosal injury was induced by oral administration of ethanol. One hour after ethanol ingestion, the rats were euthanized and gastric tissues were collected to biochemical analyze. Myeloperoxidase (MPO), tumor necrosis factor (TNF-), interleukin 1 (IL-1), interleukin 10 (IL-10), nuclear factor kappa B (NF-B) p65 protein, TNF receptor-associated factor 2 (TRAF2) and nuclear NF-B (nNF-B) proteins were estimated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay or western blot analysis. The gastric mucosal lesions were assessed by macroscopic and histopathological examinations. The results showed pretreatment with AS-IV attenuated the severity of ethanol gastric mucosal damage as evidenced by lowering of injury scores, histopathologic aberrations and leukocyte invasion. These actions were analogous to the referenceomeprazole. AS-IV suppressed gastric inflammation by curbing of MPO, TNF- levels along with NF-B p65 and TRAF2 expression. It also augmented the anti-inflammatory IL-10 levels. Meanwhile, AS-IV could inhibit NF-B transcription by inhibiting the expression of NF-B p65 and increasing the expression of nNF-B. It seems that AS-IV as an anti-inflammatory agent may have a protective effect against ethanol-induced mucosal injury by inhibition of neutrophil infiltration and reducing the expression of NF-B p65, TRAF2 and inflammatory cytokines via regulating TNF-/NF-B signal pathway ingastric tissue.

Astragaloside II promotes intestinal epithelial repair. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Sci Rep. 2017 Sep 26 ;7(1):12302. Epub 2017 Sep 26. PMID: 28951595 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside II promotes intestinal epithelial repair by enhancing L-arginine uptake and activating the mTOR pathway. Abstract:  Astragaloside II (AS II) extracted from Astragalus membranaceus has been reported to promote tissue wound repair. However, the effect of AS II on inflammatory bowel disease is unknown. We investigated the effects and mechanism of AS II on intestinal wound healing in both in vitro and in vivo models. Human intestinal Caco-2 cells were treated with multiple concentrations of AS II to assess cell proliferation, scratch wound closure, L-arginine uptake, cationic amino acid transporter activity, and activation of the mTOR signaling pathway. These effects were also measured in a mouse model of colitis. AS II promoted wound closure and increased cell proliferation, L-arginine uptake, CAT1 and CAT2 protein levels, total protein synthesis, and phosphorylation of mTOR, S6K, and 4E-BP1 in Caco-2 cells. These effects were suppressed by lysine or rapamycin treatment, suggesting that the enhanced arginine uptake mediates AS II-induced wound healing. Similar results were also observed in vivo. Our findings indicate that AS II can contribute to epithelial barrier repair following intestinal injury, and may offer a therapeutic avenue in treating irritable bowel disease.

(Arjun WaliaThe CIAs connections to mainstream media are well documented. Take Operation Mockingbird, for example, a program developed by the agency to infiltrate mainstream media and feed them stories that suit the narrative of the agency, for national security purposes. It was actually birthed out of the Office for Strategic Services (OSS), which, during the second World War, established a network of journalists and psychological warfare experts. Back then, these were propaganda campaigns, or fake news campaigns in essence. One old example from the OSS can be looked at by examining the Career of Richard Helms. He eventually become the CIAs director, and was recruited by his own supervisor at the United Press Internationals Berlin Bureau to join the OSSs black propaganda program.

Samhain Is Not a Celtic God of Death, Here are the Real Death Gods "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

October is here and with it comes the websites, emails, social media posts and televisions shows associated with Halloween, the occult and horror. At no other time over the course of the year are we closer to the concept of death and dying than at this moment, actively engaged in the tales and legends shared from different cultures and beliefs.

The iconic image of the Grim Reaper is one that is highly recognized and well-known in our society here in North America. The personification of Death with its black cloak and scythe in hand, the Gris Reapers job was to bring death to its victim, collecting their soul and delving them to the afterlife.

The concept of death differs as we travel the world, each culture with its own legends, tales, deities, and celebrations.

One topic that seems to circulate the internet every Halloween is the discussion of Samhain, however, the information is misguided. The biggest misconception is the belief that Samhain is the Celtic God of Death.

Samhain is an important concept this time of year, however, it refers to a celebration to make the end of the harvest and embrace the coming winter months. Throughout this celebration, practitioners honor the loved ones and ancestors that have passed and even go as far as to believe that the spirits of those who have passed can walk amongst them for the night.

Astragaloside may serve as an effective therapeutic agent for aging and Parkinson's disease. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Exp Ther Med. 2017 Sep ;14(3):2650-2656. Epub 2017 Jul 25. PMID: 28962208 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV rescues MPP(+)-induced mitochondrial dysfunction through upregulation of methionine sulfoxide reductase A. Abstract:  Methionine sulfoxide reductase (Msr) repairs oxidatively damaged proteins through acting as an antioxidant. Oxidative stress has been postulated to cause the mitochondrial dysfunction that is associated with aging and certain diseases, including Parkinson's disease (PD). The present study investigated the protective effects of astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+))-induced mitochondrial dysfunction through MsrA in PC12 cells. This revealed that oxidative stress reduced the expression of MsrA following MPP(+) treatment. AS-IV was demonstrated to protect PC12 cells from MPP(+)-induced oxidative damage through upregulating MsrA. MsrA expression was dependent on the Sirt1-FOXO3a signaling pathway. In addition, knockdown of MsrA reduced the protective effects of AS-IV, indicating that the antioxidant effects of AS-UV occurred through MsrA. These results suggest that AS-IV exerts antioxidant effects and regulates mitochondrial function. Thus, AS-IV may serve as an effective therapeutic agent for aging and PD.

You Cant Be Defamed By Show That No-one Watches Says Latham "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Mark Latham is confident of winning any defamation actions taken against his self produced chat show The Outsiders by citing that the show has no actual viewers.

I film the show every week in a colorbond shed in the backyard with cameras made out of wood, said Mr Latham as he cut a new audience member out of a large piece of cardboard. I have been effectively silenced by the mainstream media, which they achieved by building a wall of thick mattresses around my property.

Acquaintances of Latham have reported that he has fallen into a deep blue funk in recent months after hearing of the death of Jerry Lewis, who he was hoping to kidnap and tie to a chair as a guest for his first episode.

If Mark Latham opens his mouth in a forest and no-one is there to hear him, has he defamed anyone?, said Lathams defamation lawyer Les Diamond. We will also contend it is unfair to make Mr Latham stand up in court after having to walk all the way there from home, because no taxi driver will pick him up.

They both say the most effective lie is the biggest in the sense that it is the most all-encompassing and ever pervasive. Imagine creating a lie that deals with general concepts people value, accept, take in, and base their lives upon. Imagine how powerful and immense that would be. Imagine people accepting that lie.

Discovery Of Cave On Moon Raises Hope For Lunar Human Habitation "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

moon

Japans space agency said it has discovered an enormous cave beneath the lunar surface that could be turned into an exploration base for astronauts.  It appears to be the perfect spot for humans to colonize the moon.

The discovery, made by Japans Selenological and Engineering Explorer (Selene) probe, comes as several countries compete to follow the United States in sending manned missions to the moon. Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures, the orbiter initially found an opening 50 meters wide and 50 meters deep, prompting speculation that there could be a larger hollow. Scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) confirmed the presence of the cave after examining the hole using radio waves.

According to The Guardian, the chasm appears to be structurally sound and its rocks may contain ice or water deposits that could be turned into fuel, according to data sent back by the orbiter, nicknamed Kaguya after the moon princess in a Japanese fairytale. Jaxa believes that the cave, located from a few dozen meters to 200 meters beneath an area of volcanic domes known as the Marius Hills on the moons near side, is a lava tube created during volcanic activity about 3.5 billion years ago.

More than 75 percent of the flying insects in German nature reserves have been wiped out in the past 27 years according to a published in the scientific journal PLOS that also asserts the problem if worldwide could have a negative effect globally.

The flying insect community as a whole has been decimated over the last few decades, researchers from Radboud University and the Entomological Society Krefeld reported. At the end of the study, flying insect populations were 25 percent of what they were at the beginning.

Loss of insect diversity and abundance is expected to provoke cascading effects on food webs and to jeopardize ecosystem services, the researchers stated.

The falling insect population which includes honeybees might affect human supplies because bees and other flying bugs are needed to pollinate crops.

Astragaloside IV attenuates the H2O2-induced apoptosis of neuronal cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2017 Sep 27. Epub 2017 Sep 27. PMID: 29039448 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV attenuates the H2O2-induced apoptosis of neuronal cells by inhibiting-synuclein expression via the p38 MAPK pathway. Abstract:  An oxidative stress insult is one of the principal causes of Parkinson's disease. Astragaloside IV (AS-IV), a constituent extracted from Astragalus membranaceus, has been demonstrated to exert antioxidant effects. However, the mechanisms responsible for the antioxidant properties and neuroprotective effects of AS-IV remain unclear. In this study, we examined the protective effects of AS-IVagainst the apoptosis of human neuronal cells (SH-SY5Y cells) induced by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The results revealed that AS-IV pre-treatment attenuated the H2O2induced loss of SH-SY5Y cells in a dose-dependent manner; AS-IV exerted significant protecitve effects by decreasing the apoptoticratio and attenuating reactive oxygen species overproduction in H2O2-exposed SH-SY5Y cells. By means of immunofluorescence staining, AS-IV was found to decrease the expression of -synuclein and to increase the expression of tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) in the cells, which had been increased and decreased, respectively by H2O2. As shown by western blot analysis, the protective effects of AS-IV against SH-SY5Y cell injury induced by H2O2 were also mediated via the downregulation of the ratio of Bax/Bcl-2. We found that the neuroprotective effects of AS-IV were associated with the inhibition ofthe expression of the -synuclein via the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling pathway. On the whole, our results suggest that AS-IV exerts protective effects against neurodegenerative diseases by targeting -synuclein or TH.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: Potential Wyckoff Distribution May Spring New All-Time Highs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Analysis

A potential Wyckoff Distribution phase is under way as bitcoin continues to climb on shaky ground. Days after having a strong $1,000 climb and nearly reaching $6,000 on most exchanges, we saw a strong rejection of the upper limits of the market as it plunged $600 over the course of a few short hours. Lets take a look at the macro pattern and draw a few similarities to the Wyckoff Distribution schemes:

Figure_1.JPG

Figure 1: BTC-USD, 2-Hour Candles, Potential Wyckoff Distribution Phase

In order for the current distribution phase to be reliable, there are certain milestones the market must reach. As shown above, we previously established a point of Preliminary Supply, a strong Buying Climax, a knee-jerk reaction into an Automatic Reaction low, and a weak rally that ultimately led to a Sign of Weakness that pushed us down several hundred dollars. The rebound from this low was strong and occurred on very high volume. However, over the length of the rally post-sign-of-weakness, the volume has begun to taper as the momentum indicators are showing signs of bullish exhaustion as it finds its local high at around the $5,700 values.

One of the following milestones for the Wyckoff Distribution phase is one last dip as it tests the previous support around the Automatic Reaction low. As of the the time of this article, the current market trend is showing signs of bearish divergence on the 120-minute candles.  Zooming in closer, we can see clear signs of a potential small reversal:

Feds OK bombing practice in waters off Kauai "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Ed. Note: More war games at the expense of sentient marine life, its almost two months after the decision, where is the outrage, why no protests on Kauai? Befuddled.

The five-year plan by the Air Force cuts munitions and monitors wildlife

U.S. NAVYThree U.S. F-22 Raptors from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam await refueling from a KC-135R Stratotanker during Rim of the Pacific 2016 war games in Hawaii.

The National Marine Fisheries Service has given approval to a five-year Air Force plan for bombing practice at sea off Kauai that reduces munitions used and increases monitoring for impacts to whales and dolphins. Earthjustice attorney David Henkin, who previously criticized the plan as not doing enough to protect marine mammals, said Tuesday the Air Force did beef up the monitoring, which is a positive development. The Long Range Strike Weapons System Evaluation Program may use aircraft, including B-1, B-2 and B-52 bombers, and F-15, F-16, F-22 and F-35 fighters to release over water weapons including joint air-to-surface standoff missiles with a 1,000-pound warhead; 200 to 250-pound small-diameter glide bombs; high-speed anti-radiation, or HARM, missiles; and joint direct attack munitions, the Air Force said in a previous environmental assessment.

The Air Force said it needs the annual at-sea training at Kauais Pacific Missile Range Facility up to Aug. 20, 2022, due to unspecified national security threats that likely revolve around China, with increased air-to-surface exercises directed by the Pentagon.

The fisheries service said since the development of the environmental assessment, which was completed in October, the Air Force identified a reduction in the number of munitions to be used during each exercise. No reason was given for the decrease.

The Air Force also previously said each long-range strike mission would occur over a maximum of five consecutive days a year with about 110 bombs released each time. The impact area is approximately 50 miles off Kauai in waters 15,000 feet deep.

A finding of no significant impact signed by the Fisheries Service on Aug. 11 said that in 2017 training would only occur on one day and...

Calligraphy is an ancient art that's popularity still exists today. Centered around letter forms and symbols, calligraphy celebrates the written word in many different ways, from how the individual letters are arranged to the rhythm and flow between them.

An ancient art with a modern revival

The European iteration of the art first appeared in Latin script around 600 B.C.E. in Rome. There, it was painted on walls and eventually used to copy the Bible and other religious texts. Its influence survived the fall of the Roman Empire and continued to evolve until around the 15th century. After this point, calligraphy became less utilized thanks to the advent of the printing press; illuminated manuscripts began to decline as a resultthey just weren't as practical as automation.

At the end of the 19th century, there was a modern revival of calligraphy. Letterer Edward Johnston began studying manuscripts of calligraphy, and coupled with the concurrent Arts and Crafts movement, there was a renewed interest in penmanship. Johnston produced a number of publications on the subject, and he taught others calligraphy as well. During this time, he also developed his own calligraphic style thats written with a bro...

America Longing For Sensible, Coherent Days Of George W Bush "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

george w bush

Americans have looked back nostalgically at the days of their 43rd President, when policy was balanced, thought-through and well-articulated.

A recent speech by George W Bush in New York sent Americans minds racing back to a quieter, more intelligent time of respect, decorum, and just a little bit of racism.

He was so stately, so well spoken, so intelligent. Oh, to go back to those days,American Ted Humphries said.

Back then the most outlandish thing we had to worry about was the occasional dodgy war in the Middle East, or the odd collapse of a financial market. Whereas now, well, its all gotten a little crazy.

He said discourse then was more stately. Its the incoherent babble of the current president it really is difficult to know what hes talking about sometimes. But Bush, he had a way with words.

Astragaloside significantly inhibited colorectal cancer cell migration and invasion by inducing miR-134 expression. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cell Physiol Biochem. 2017 Oct 17 ;43(4):1. Epub 2017 Oct 17. PMID: 29041002 Abstract Title:  Astragaloside IV Induced miR-134 Expression Reduces EMT and Increases Chemotherapeutic Sensitivity by Suppressing CREB1 Signaling in Colorectal Cancer Cell Line SW-480. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Colorectal cancer (CRC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-related deaths worldwide. Although chemotherapy is the primary means in colorectal cancer treatment, it is burdenerd by adverse drug effects. Drug-resistance is one of the most important challenges for chemotherapy and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) plays critical role in the development of drug resistance.AIMS: The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms underlying the effect of astragaloside IV (AS-IV) on miR-134 expression, EMT and chemotherapeutic sensitivity in CRC.METHODS: Cell proliferation, transfection assay, western blot, real-time PCR, cell migration and invasion assay and luciferase reporter assay were used to detect the effects of AS-IV on CRC.RESULTS: AS-IV significantly inhibited CRC cell migration and invasion by inducing miR-134 expression. Moreover, AS-IV and miR-134 increased the sensitivity of CRC tumors to oxaliplatin (OXA) chemotherapy. cAMP responsive element-binding protein 1 (CREB1), which was required for CRC cells migration, invasion and drug sensitivity, was significantly down-regulated by AS-IV.CONCLUSIONS: Our results indicated that AS-IV inhibited CRC EMT by inducing miR-134 expression which significantly down-regulated the CREB1 signaling pathway, and therefore increased the sensitivity to chemotherapy. Our findings provided new insight into the mechanisms of chemotherapy-resistant CRC, and may open new therapeutic options in the treatment of this devastating disease.

St. Patricks Stone, Portpatrick, Wigtownshire "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Cup-Marked Stone (destroyed):  OS Grid Reference NX 0010 5411

Archaeology & History

Very little is known about this long-lost carving, whose primary information comes from the folklore records.  Apparently it was found on a rock a short distance south of the destroyed St. Patricks Well and the two sites seem to have had a traditional relationship with each other.  The carving had a foot-shaped motif on the rock, and a number of other cup-markings; but I can find no account as to whether the foot carving possessed toes, as seen on the impressive Cochno Stone, north of Glasgow.  It may have been little more that the petroglyphic feet seen on the recently discovered and aptly-named Footprint Stone, or those on the newly rediscovered Witches Stone; but we cannot discount it being larger, like the Footprint Stone of Dunadd.  If we could locate an early sketch of the stone, all would be revealed!   Sadly, as E.M.H. MKerlie (1916) told us,

this rock was blasted at the time when the government essayed to make the harbour one of great importance,

several years after the nearby holy well had been re-routed. Fucking idiots!  Any further info on this site would be most welcome.

Folklore

The local story that was told about St. Patrick creating these carvings seems to have been described first of all by Andrew Agnew (1864), who wrote:

Once, when about to revisit his native land, he crossed the Channel at a stride, leaving the mark of his foot distinctly impressed on one of the rocks of the harbour; unfortunately, in making a new jetty, this interesting memento was destroyed.

(The mention of the jetty would seem to imply that the carving was closer to the sea than the grid-reference cited above.) In another tale, St. Patrick rested his hand onto the same rock and the marks of his hand and fingers were left there.  This folklore motif is found across the world.  It relates to cosmological creation myths of indigenous spirits and deities in the tribes and cultures who narrate it.  In this instance, the myth of St Patrick replaced a much earlier mythic tale of another giant or deity, whose name we have lost.  Unless, of course, such petroglyphs were still being carved in Galloway by local people in the 4th-5th centuries.

A further tale of St Patrick, at Portpatrick, replaced a quite obvious...

Canon Patents a Giant DSLR Flip Screen "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Canon has filed a patent in Japan for a giant flip screen for the rear display of professional-form DSLR cameras.

First spotted by Canon Rumors, the patent illustrations show a 1D X-style camera with a screen that spans nearly the entire backside of the camera. And instead of flipping out to the side, it uses an arm to flip well above the top of the camera.

The patent also appears to show other user interface elements (e.g. buttons, a mode dial, and a smaller display) hidden behind the screen on the camera body. These are only accessible after the screen is swiveled out from the camera.

Once tilted, the screen can be rotated to face both forward and backward.

Other illustrations in the patent show a similar large screen design for 5D-style DSLR bodies:

I think a lot of us have always assumed eventually the entire back of a camera would be an LCD/OLED, Canon Rumors writes. A lot of us have called on Canon to put vari-angle LCDs on professional cameras such as the EOS-1D X series, EOS 5D series and the EOS 7D series, and were still waiting.

Acting Secretary of Homeland Security, Elaine Duke has warned that Al-Qaeda and ISIS are planning a 'big' attack just "like they did on 9/11." "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

9/11

Islamic State and Al-Qaeda terrorists are plotting to take down a plane and carry out a devastating explosion on the same scale of 9/11 according to the United States Security Chief.

The terrorist organizations, be it ISIS or Al-Qaeda or others, want to have the big explosion like they did on 9/11. They want to take down aircraft, the intelligence is clear on that, the acting US secretary of homeland security, Elaine Duke said during a visit to the UK, as cited by the Telegraph.

The attack on September 11, 2001, was the deadliest attack in US history and has been surrounded by controversy since which makes this tying it in with this warning of new attacks particularly worrisome.

The threat is still severe, said Duke on Wednesday in London following her meeting with Home Secretary Amber Rudd, where the officials discussed terrorist content online.

Larry Rivers, Vocabulary Lesson (Polish) (1964-65), oil on canvas. 22, x 33 inches (image courtesy Tibor de Nagy Gallery Larry Rivers Foundation / Licensed by VAGA)

A retrospective exhibition of a mere 20 pieces by an artist as prolific as Larry Rivers would give any reviewer pause, especially if that reviewer felt compelled by convention to pinpoint where Rivers belonged on a flow chart of the second half of the 20th century. That Rivers earned a place on that chart is unquestionable. But his work reveals a tendency to resist alignment with any single path. While he evaded mainstream movements like Pop Art, he oddly and selectively adapted elements of those same movements. Its quite a challenge to wade through his stream of contradictory attitudes and purposefully mismatched techniques.

(Re)APPROPRIATIONS, the slippery-sounding title of the late artists current exhibition at Tibor de Nagy, may be catchy but narrowly directs ones attention to the Neo-Duchampian thread that can be found intermittently in his work, yet hardly stands out as central to his vision. The unavoidable reality is that Rivers shunned a central vision. Any single coordinate in the weave of the Rivers tapestry leaves one no better oriented than another.

Interview: Artist Creates Mesmerizing Kinetic Sculptures Set in Motion by Human Interaction "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Moving Sculpture by Mespl

Killing Time'

The artist known simply as Mespl creates compelling moving sculptures that combine elements of art, science, technology, and human interactivity. Employing time-honored foundry construction techniques like welding and blacksmithing, he elevates these everyday approaches by using them to produce objects and experiences that we've never seen nor had before.

One of Mespls latest pieces, titled Killing Time, features sleek, masterfully crafted metalwork integrated with sensors that react to human presence. As the viewer approaches, their attendance sets in motion an eerie series of events. A deep black ferrofluida liquid thats strongly magnetized when around a magnetic fieldproduces breath-like motions into the mouth of a polished skull. The surreal kinetic sculpture is mesmerizing in how it both consumes the special liquid and the geometric design that's created as the ferrofluid travels from the glass vessel to the head.

We had the opportunity to talk to Mespl about Killing Time and how he comes up with these other types of alluring experiences. Scroll down to read our exclusive interview, below.

Artist Mespl creates compelling kinetic sculpture that fuse foundry techniques with science and technology that's aided by human interactivity.

Your work has so many aspects to it, from art to technology. How do you decide how to integrate the two? Have you always been interested in combining these two fields, and why?

I have been making art and sculptures since I was a little kid and was very fortunate to have the guidance to explore other realms of creativity outside of just traditional forms of artistic expression. My father is an artist, he also holds degrees in physics and architecture, not to mention his mastery of regular tools. As a child, I remembering making a Jacob's ladder in third grade from an old induction coil. Once I built it, I thought it was amazing, but wanted to show off the jumping of electricity between the copper rods. I thought, what other shapes could I make this work with? And how do I show this off in a way no one has seen before?

These findings suggest that astaxanthin offers neuroprotection against doxorubicin induced cognitive impairment. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Neurobiol. 2017 Oct 16. Epub 2017 Oct 16. PMID: 29039023 Abstract Title:  Astaxanthin Ameliorates Doxorubicin-Induced Cognitive Impairment (Chemobrain) in Experimental Rat Model: Impact on Oxidative, Inflammatory, and Apoptotic Machineries. Abstract:  Chemobrain refers to a common sequelae experienced by 15-80% of cancer patients exposed to chemotherapeutics. The antineoplastic agent doxorubicin (DOX) has been implicated in a strenuous neurotoxicity manifested as decline in cognitive functions, most probably via cytokine-induced oxidative and nitrosative damage to brain tissues. Astaxanthin (AST), a naturally occurring carotenoid, is reputable for its outstanding antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic activities. Therefore, the aim of the current study was to investigate the potential neuroprotective and memory-enhancing effects of AST against DOX-induced behavioral and neurobiological abnormalities. Briefly, AST treatment (25 mg/kg) significantly protected against DOX-induced memory impairment. Furthermore, AST restored hippocampal histopathological architecture, halted DOX-induced oxidative and inflammatory insults, mitigated the increase in acetylcholinesterase activity, and consistently downregulated the overactiveapoptotic machineries. In conclusion, these findings suggest that AST offers neuroprotection against DOX-induced cognitive impairment which could be explained at least partly by its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic effects.

My name is Richard Haw, and Im a photographer based in Tokyo, Japan. In this post, Ill show you how scanning film works with the Nikon D850s unique new Negative Digitizer Mode.

I have been digitizing my negatives using DSLRs for some time now, using the Nikon Picture Control to get a positive image when I preview my capture on the cameras LCD.

While this works well with monochrome pictures, I wasnt very happy with this workflow when it comes to C41 process films due to the heavy amber tint, as this requires more time and effort to fix in post.

But Nikon has rocked the boat so to speak when they announced the new Negative Digitizer Mode in the D850. I recently visited Nikons offices with a C41 negative frame and borrowed a D850 to test out the new feature.

Here is the brief video showing how the new Negative Digitizer Mode works:

You have to enter into Live View picture taking mode and then click the i button to bring out the menu on the right sidebar. Scroll down a bit until you see the icon for the Negative Digitizer Mode. Select which one you want between monochrome and C41 process film and begin capturing.

Security Guard and Engineer Appear on Ellen, 1847 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Protect Your Information From Big Data - Click Here! https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Use Promo Code: bill still for 20% OFF Good evening, Im still reporting on: Security Guard and Engineer Appear on Ellen, 1847 Synopsis:Vegas security guard, Jesus Campos, and Mandalay Bay engineer, Stephen Schuck appeared on the Ellen show this afternoon. Since I was wrong about Campos being among the living, Im going to err on the side of timidity in analyzing this 9-minute interview. Plus, Im a bit worried about being hit with a copyright infringement strike, so Im just going to hit a few points. Im sure that by the time this is up, on Ellens site. First of all, Ellen is the perfect vehicle for Camposs one and only appearance. Why? Because MGM the owner of the Mandalay Bay is funding an Ellen slot machine game. MGM is a very powerful supporter of her financially and politically. [insert: Ellen at MGM Grand] To me, this was the most soft-ball interview in the history of the world, but Beth says that this is just Ellens style non-confrontational. The most important thing to realize is that the main goal of this interview was to drive home a theme that Campos is so broken up by his experience that this would be his only interview, lest he has to relive the event over and over again. If you watch the entire interview, youll see this theme predominating. So, heres the first few seconds. [insert] Wow! Look at this face. Campos is remarkably composed for being the first time on big-league TV and all. Impressive guy. [insert: Yeah, I imagine ] There it is the predominant theme that justifies why Campos wont be submitting to a harder-hitting interview where he might be asked some potentially really embarrassing questions, like: exactly where were you treated for your leg wound and when? [insert: Yeah, and how are you doing?.... were working to get over this.] Look at Campos. Does this guy look upset? No. Is he on the verge of tears? No. When men are about to lose their composure in a public setting they dont look at you full-faced, they bow their heads to hide it.

Astaxanthin may reduce alveolar bone loss by increasing osteoblastic activity and decrease osteoclastic activity in experimental periodontitis model. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Periodontal Res. 2017 Oct 17. Epub 2017 Oct 17. PMID: 29044575 Abstract Title:  Investigation of the effect of astaxanthin on alveolar bone loss in experimental periodontitis. Abstract:  BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Astaxanthin is a keto-carotenoid that has a strong antioxidant effect. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of astaxanthin on alveolar bone loss and histopathological changes in ligature-induced periodontitis in rats.MATERIAL AND METHODS: Wistar rats were divided into four experimental groups: non-ligated (C, n = 6); ligature only (L, n = 6); ligature and astaxanthin (1 mg/kg/day astaxanthin, AS1 group, n = 8); ligature and astaxanthin (5 mg/kg/day astaxanthin, AS5 group, n = 8). Silk ligatures were placed at the gingival margin of lower first molars of the mandibular quadrant. The study duration was 11 days and the animals were killed at the end of this period. Changes in alveolar bone levels were clinically measured and tissues were immunohistochemically examined, osteocalcin, bone morphogenic protein-2, inducible nitric oxide synthase, Bax and bcl-2 levels in alveolar bone and tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase-positive osteoclast cells, osteoblast and inflammatory cell counts were determined.RESULTS: Alveolar bone loss was highest in the L group and the differences among the L, AS1 and AS5 groups were also significant (P

Discover protocols that could lead you into thyroid disease remission.
I didnt always want to be a thyroid pharmacist!  In fact, I didnt have much interest in the thyroid until my own thyroid diagnosis in 2009. This diagnosis came after almost a decade of some pretty life-altering symptoms. I was so fatigued I had to sleep for 12 hours each night just to feel human. My sharp mind that kept me on the honor roll during my doctorate program studies was not so sharp anymore! I began to have brain fog and started being forgetful and then there was the intense anxiety
I remember levels of anxiety so bizarre that my husband couldnt go for a jog without me thinking hed been hit by a car or left with some woman!
I was in pain pretty much everyday, and I ended up being diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both arms. I wore braces on my arms and eventually had to resign from my job because it involved too much computer time. I had irritable bowel syndrome and acid reflux and went to so many doctors, I felt like I had more doctors visits than visits with friends!
Some doctors told me that there was nothing wrong with me, other doctors said it was all in my head and suggested antidepressants, other doctors told me that everyone was tired and stressed. One of the most amusing answers I got from a health care professional was Youre just getting older.
Did I mention that I was only 25 years old at the time?
When I first got my diagnosis, I finally felt validated, but sadly, the doctors still didnt have many solutions for me. I was prescribed ...

Cryptoxanthin treatment exhibits greater cardioprotective efficacy against I/R injury than astaxanthin and vitamin E. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Nutr Food Res. 2017 Oct ;61(10). Epub 2017 Jul 18. PMID: 28544535 Abstract Title:  -Cryptoxanthin exerts greater cardioprotective effects on cardiac ischemia-reperfusion injury than astaxanthin by attenuating mitochondrial dysfunction in mice. Abstract:  SCOPE: -Cryptoxanthin and astaxanthin are antioxidant carotenoid pigments that inhibit lipid peroxidation as potently as vitamin E. We hypothesized that acute treatment with -cryptoxanthin and astaxanthin causes similar reductions in the sizes of cardiac infarcts caused by ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury by attenuating oxidative stress and cardiac mitochondrial dysfunction.METHODS AND RESULTS: C57BL/6 mice (n = 36) were randomized to receive vehicle, -cryptoxanthin, astaxanthin, or vitamin E at 50 mg/kg by gavage feeding prior to I/R injury. Cardiac I/R was induced by left anterior descending coronary artery ligation followed by reperfusion. All treatments significantly reduced infarct sizes by 36-57%, attenuated apoptosis and also attenuated cardiac mitochondrial dysfunction in the treated groups compared to the control group. Although astaxanthin and vitamin E exhibited similar efficacy with respect to cardioprotection, -cryptoxanthin exhibited greater efficacy than its counterparts, as itreduced infarct sizes by 60%. -Cryptoxanthin was more effective than astaxanthin and vitamin E because it reduced cardiac mitochondrial swelling, mitochondrial depolarization, the Bax/Bcl-2 ratio, and plasma and cardiac thiobarbituric acid reactive substances levels more significantly than its counterparts.CONCLUSION: Acute-cryptoxanthin treatment exhibits greater cardioprotective efficacy against I/R injury than astaxanthin and vitamin E by reducing infarct sizes and attenuating apoptosis, oxidative stress, and mitochondrial dysfunction.

Researchers find the entrance to the Moon "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


It seems that researchers have discovered the entrance that leads inside our moon.

The entrance to the 50-kilometer long cave inside the moon was discovered by JAXAs Selenological and Engineering Explorer (SELENE), aka Kaguya after it spotted a strange opening of around 50 meters in diameter on the surface of the moon.

The data collected by the Japanese lunar orbiter Kaguya has revealed that a cave system on the Moon discovered in 2009 is about 50 kilometers long and could provide shelter to future settlers, according to Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) and reports from the Japan Times.

The massive cave system could provide shelter for future astronauts on the moon.

This Japanese agency estimates that this cavity could protect future lunar explorers from radiation of and cosmic rays when the near future, mankind establishes a fully functional base on the surface of the moon.

According to experts, the cave system, which formed about 3.5 billion years ago due to volcanic activity, is located in an area with several volcanic domes known as Marius Hills, near the lunar crater of the same name.

The initial discovery was made after Kaguya spotted a mysterious hole on the lunar surface with a diameter of around 50 meters.

Eventually, a further radio-wave study discovered that the 50-meter entrance was only a small part of a supermassive tunnel leading inside Earths natural satellite.

It is widely believed that Earths moon was the victim of large-scale volcanic activity until about 1 billion years ago.

This photo taken by Kaguya shows a 50-meter hole in the lunar surface leading to a cave that extends for 50 km. Image Credit: JAXA.

The supermassive cavern is believed to have been a lava tube formed when the outer lava cooled and hardened while the melted rock within remained hot and continued to flow, reports the Asahi Shimbun.

The cave is a scientifically useful place, said Tetsuya Kaku, a graduate student at Tokai University involved in the study. Kaku cited the...

Scientists Theorize The Location of The Soul "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Sure, we know that as humans we must have a soul but where exactly is it? Can it truly be placed in one specific location within our bodies?

While identifying this location may seem like a crazy myth or mystery no one will ever be able to solve, many have been trying for quite some time. Various well-respected scientists actually believe our consciousness or soul does, in fact, live on once we have passed. British physicist Sir Roger Penrose is one of these men.

He believes that the soul does not die along with the body. He says that he thinks the consciousness is merely a packet of information stored at a sub-atomic or quantum level. He also claims that he has found evidence to suggest this information is stored within microtubules within our cells. These leave our body once we pass on.

Penrose has worked with Steven Hawking and is easily one of the most renowned Oxford physicists I have researched. It seems these microtubules lose their quantum state and leave the nervous system during near-death experiences but in these cases, they do return. When we really do die, they do not come back.

According to Dr. Stuart Hameroff, professor emeritus at the Departments of Anaesthesiology and Psychology had this to say in regards:

Lets say the heart stops beating, the blood stops flowing, the microtubules lose their quantum state. The quantum information within the microtubules is not destroyed, it cant be destroyed, it just distributes and dissipates to the universe at large.

If the patient is resuscitated, revived, this quantum information can go back into the microtubules and the patient says, I had a near death experience.

If theyre not revived, and the patient dies, its possible that this quantum information can exist outside the body, perhaps indefinitely, as a soul.

The Sun actually reported that Penrose was not alone in this, as his theory is backed by many researchers at the renowned Max Planck Institute for Physics in Munich, so it might not be as outlandish as you think. Could the universe really just be some kind of perception and once we die life is infinite? I guess the only real way to find out is to cross that bridge when it gets here.

Maria Anna Mozart Was a Musical Prodigy Like Her Brother Wolfgang, So Why Did She Get Erased from History? "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

When people ask why we have specifically black histories, or queer histories, or womens histories, it can be hard for many who do historical research to take the question seriously. But in fairness, such questions point to the very reason that alternative or revisionist histories exist. We cannot know what we are not told about historyat least not without doing the kind of digging professional scholars can do. Virginia Woolfs tragic, but fictional, history of Shakespeares sister notwithstanding, the claims made by cultural critics about marginalization and oppression arent based on speculation, but on case after case of individuals who were ignored by, or shut out of, the wider culture, and subsequently disappeared from historical memory.

One such extraordinary case involves the real sister of another towering European figure whose life we know much more about than Shakespeares. Before Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began writing his first compositions, his older sister Maria Anna Mozart, nicknamed Nannerl, had already proven herself a prodigy.




The two toured Europe together as childrenshe was with her brother during his 18-month stay in London. There are contemporaneous reviews praising Nannerl, writes Sylvia Milo, and she was even billed first. A 1763 review, for example, sounds indistinguishable from those written about young Wolfgang.

Imagine an eleven-year-old girl, performing the most difficult sonatas and concertos of the greatest composers, on the harpsichord or fortepiano, with precision, with incredible lightness, with impeccable taste. It was a source of wonder to many.

18th century classical audiences first came to know Wolfgang as part of a brother-sister duo of wunderkinder. But the sister half has been airbrushed out of the picture. She...

[VIDEO] Cop Suffers A Panic Attack During Standoff As Paramedic Disarms Him "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

coppanics

A Sevier County Sheriffs Office deputy opened fire without warning in a mobile home park. He then suffered an apparent panic attack and four minutes later was forcibly disarmed by a paramedic, body camera footage shows.

Deputy Justin Johnson and paramedic Blake Gregg were holding down an unarmed suspect, Tina Carrie Jo Cody, when the incident occurred. The video begins with Johnson asking Cody to walk toward him with her hands up. He already seems angry and slightly agitated.

Johnson was called to the mobile home park at 794 Sharp Road by the paramedics. A morbidly obese female had fallen inside one of the homes and was complaining about landlord Robin Sutton, Codys mother, and Cody, Johnson wrote in his report.

Once Cody is on the ground after a short chase,  an obviously adrenalized Johnson suddenly turned toward the trailer park and fired four shots. He paused and fired three more rounds, the video obtained by the USA TODAY NETWORK Tennessee showed. Johnson then ran away from Cody and Gregg toward Sharp Road.

Shots fired, he told dispatchers. We need help. Four minutes later, Johnson was kneeling over Cody, who had remained on the ground during the shooting, with his gun still in his hand when the video showed he began hyperventilating and running backward away from the mobile homes and Cody.

Paramedic Michael OConnor ran toward Johnson.

Pull it together, OConnor told Johnson. Look at me.

The sheriffs deputy begins to panic around the 5:25 mark in the video. Johnson continued to hyperventilate while pointing his gun toward Cody, Gregg and the mobile homes. He appears to be suffering from a breakdown. Give me your gun, OConnor repeatedly said. A still hyperventilating Johnson continued to grip the gun. OConnor eventually wrested it from his hand.

However, he does believe in life on other planets, and he believes one day those who are searching for life elsewhere will find it.

I believe theres life on other planets. I hope that they are super evolved and highly intelligent; and have chosen, not to interfere because there letting us evolve and make our own mistakes, Eugene told Corbell. I dont have any fears about it. So many people will be like, oh, I shouldnt say anything because that UFO thing its shrouded in all this sorta like all these crazy people talk about it. For me its very scientific and matter of fact.

Although Eugene says he nor his father have seen a UFO, when asked if he would like to, he responded, Are you kidding me? Id wanna fly in one.

Either way, he encourages those researching UFOs and alien life.

The only thing I would wanna say to the people in this particular audience [those interested in UFOs] is, I am a believer that there is some sort of life out there, and my preference is intelligent life thats evolved beyond ours. And I appreciate everyone whos been out there, trying to find it, whos been digging deep.

Newly released photographs showing Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos receiving a bravery award have captured an anomaly that proves the official story is a complete lie. 

On Oct. 10, nine days after he was allegedly shot by gunman Stephen Paddock, Campos managed to limp into a steakhouse to receive an award for bravery from his fellow security officers.

Newnationalist.net reports:  The following image is a photo of the event, which was held at Jean Georges Steakhouse in Las Vegas. Notice the dark motif and surrounding appearance of what is commonly referred to as the boardroom.

Campos is seated second from the right.

Next, we have a random photo of a party in the boardroom taken in 2013. The same pattern can be seen on the wall behind where the wounded Campos is comfortably seated. Also notice the same white box on the wall in both photos as well as the chandeliers.

Man Starts Facebook Group for UPS Drivers to Share Photos of Dogs They Meet on Daily Routes "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

UPS Dogs Facebook Group

Left: Sean McCarren, founder of UPS Dogs. | Right: A group of adorable pups wanting to say hello.

UPS drivers meet a variety of people on their routes, and as it turns out, dogs, too. These enthusiastic pups are often the best part of a drivers day, with their friendly wagging tongues and an outpouring of unconditional love. To celebrate the good dogs that make their lives brighter, they post about them in a Facebook group aptly called UPS Dogs.

A man named Sean McCarren started the delightful community five years ago. Having worked at UPS for 17 years, he says that meeting the dogs along his routes is one of the very best parts of driving the big brown truck. Theyll run up to the vehicle when it arrivessome even hop inor greet him at the front door. I wish we could just hang out with the families and their dogs all day, McCarren laments, but it's just not feasible. Even so, these small interactions are worth it.

McCarren is not alone in his adoration of these canines. UPS Dogs is a place for drivers across the country to share photos and videos of their pup pals. The groupopen to the publicposts not only adorable pictures, but it also highlights the bond that drivers have with the dogs they see on a daily basis. Many UPS community members will spend their breaks playing with the canines and buy special treats to give them. While the group is often a place of smiles, the friendship between the driver and pup has moments of sadness, too. One member, for instance, posted that when a customer informed him of a their dog's passing, his eyes welled up and heart sank.

UPS Dogs isnt affiliated with the companyits more of a passion project maintained by dedicated employees. The company, however, is aware of the group and fully embraces its warm spirits. Its a good example of the relationships our employees build with their customers, a spokesperson says, two- or four-legged!

Supplementation of -cryptoxanthin would be beneficial for the maintenance of joint health and as prophylaxis against osteoarthritis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biol Pharm Bull. 2017 ;40(7):1116-1120. PMID: 28674255 Abstract Title:  Amelioration of the Development of Osteoarthritis by Daily Intake of-Cryptoxanthin. Abstract:  -Cryptoxanthin, which is primarily obtained from citrus fruits such as Satsuma mandarins, is a major carotenoid routinely found in human serum. Recently, we demonstrated that daily oral intake of -cryptoxanthin prevented ovariectomy-induced bone loss and ameliorated neuropathic pain in mice. Although -cryptoxanthin exerts preventive effects on various lifestyle-related diseases, there have been no studies on the effect of -cryptoxanthin on the development of osteoarthritis, the most common degenerative joint disease, which frequently leads to loss of ability and stiffness in the elderly. Here we showed that daily oral administration of -cryptoxanthin significantly prevented the development of osteoarthritis developed by surgically inducing knee joint instability in mice in vivo. Furthermore, in vitro experiments revealed that -cryptoxanthin markedly inhibited the expression of inflammatory cytokines and enzymes critical for the degradation of the extracellular matrix in primary chondrocytes. Our results suggest that oral supplementation of -cryptoxanthin would be beneficial for the maintenance of joint health and as prophylaxis against osteoarthritis.

Photographer Sues the NY Times for Discrimination, Misclassification, More "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

A photographer whose photos have appeared on the front page of the New York Times over 30 times has filed a lawsuit against the newspaper. He accuses the Times of misclassifying his employment status, discriminating against him based on age, denying assignments due to an arrest, and retaliating against him due to making these claims.

Bloomberg BNA reports that photographer Robert Stolarik filed the lawsuit against the Times on July 6th in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. In the complaint, Stolarik makes a number of different accusations.

The first is that during his 14 years of shooting for the paper, Stolarik has always been classified as a freelancer instead of a full-time employee, making him pay additional taxes as well as be ineligible for the companys health insurance benefits and retirement plan. Stolarik says that the editors at the Times referred to him as a full-time freelancer.

Stolarik also says that despite working nearly 3,400 hours in overtime between 2005 and 2009, he was only compensated his standard hourly rate of $25 per hour for these overtime hours.

The Times also discriminated against Stolarik based on age, the lawsuit says. Stolarik regularly sought to become a staff photographer and employee of the Times, but he claims he was told multiple times by multiple editors that his age (he was 37 in 2006) would prevent him from being brought on as a staff shooter.

At the same time, a number of less qualified younger photographers in their 20s were hired by the Times as staff photographers, the lawsuit says.

In August 2012, Stolarik was covering a story in the Bronx when he was assaulted and arrested by NYPD officers. The Times assigned Stolarik a lawyer to defend himself and sent an angry letter to the NYPD over the photographers treatment. Th...

THE BETES: HOW IS TYPE 1 DIABETES GOING FOR YOU? "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Its going fine?  Its good?  Were tired?  I cry a lot?  Its nice that everyone asks, but do they really want to know?  Its hard to explain how type 1 is going for us.  Type 1 Diabetes is just a lot.  Ive had many people asking many questions so I thought I would answer them all in one place:

How is Stella doing?

Shes really doing so well.  Shes just taking it all in stride.  She doesnt like shots, but she deals with them.  She hates having her finger poked, but she deals with it.  Weve had our share of additional tantrums and frustration from her, but thats to be expected.  Its hard because now when she acts out I have to investigate-is it the diabetes or the fact that shes 5 thats causing the fit?

Type 1 Diabetes management

Do you really give her shots every day?

People cannot fathom shots every single day.  Its almost like they think Im over-exaggerating or doing something wrong when I explain that she gets 4-7 shots a day.  Every time Stella decides she wants to eat, we have to be her pancreas and give her insulin to help her use her food and not overload her blood stream with sugar.  For our standard 3 meals a day, she gets shots.  If she wants a snack, she gets a shot.  Shots! Shots! Shots! (but not in a fun way).

Are you going to get her on the pump?

I have now talked to several people that believe that an insulin pump=artificial pancreas.  Those things are not the same.  We recently (finally!) got her on a device called the Dexcom and that has been a huge improvement.  She wears a small monitor that places an electrode under her skin and updates us every 5 minutes about what her current blood sugar is.  This means that instead of poking her finger 4-6 times a day, we only have to poke her twice a day to calibrate the device and we have a warning when her b...

It is hypothesized that baicalin exerts cardioprotective effects via suppression of the Wnt/ catenin signalling pathway. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2017 Oct 10. Epub 2017 Oct 10. PMID: 29039516 Abstract Title:  Baicalin alleviates H2O2induced injury of H9c2 cardiomyocytes through suppression of the Wnt/catenin signaling pathway. Abstract:  Baicalin is one of the active ingredients extracted from the dry root of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, which has been reported to be effective in preventing myocardial ischemia reperfusion injury. However, the mechanisms underlying its cardioprotective activities remain to be elucidated. In the present study, H2O2treated cardiomyocyte H9c2 cell line served as an in vitro model of oxidationdamaged cardiomyocytes to evaluate the effects of baicalin on the cardiac injury, and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanism. The results of the TOPFlash/Renilla reporter gene assay indicated that baicalin significantly suppressed the activation of protooncogene Wnt1 (Wnt)/catenin in 293 cells, in a dose dependent manner. In addition, baicalin significantly inhibited H2O2induced loss of H9c2 cell viability in MTT assay. Furthermore, western blotting analysis demonstrated that baicalin markedly attenuated H2O2induced cell apoptosis, as demonstrated by the downregulation of cleaved caspase3 and the increase in the apoptosis regulator Bcl2 (Bcl2)/apoptosis regulator BAX (Bax) ratio following baicalin treatment in H2O2treated H9c2 cells. Furthermore, baicalin markedly decreased the expression of catenin and downstream Axin2and myc protooncogene protein in H2O2treated H9c2 cells. Knockdown of catenin expression inhibited H2O2induced cell apoptosis. Finally, LiCl (a catenin stabilizer) induced apoptosis of H9c2 cells by upregulating the expression of catenin, which was significantly neutralized by the treatment with baicalin. Taken together, it is hypothesized that baicalin exerts cardioprotective effects via suppression of the Wnt/catenin signaling pathway.

This Blockchain-Powered Platform Aims to Disrupt the Esport Gambling Industry "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This Blockchain-Powered Platform Aims to Disrupt the Esport Gambling Industry

Esports wagering is a large and growing global industry at the intersection between gambling, technology and entertainment. In their 2017 Global Esports Markets Report, Newzoo found that China and North America will generate $362 million during 2017, or 52 percent of global esports industry's revenue. If the esports industry continues on the same growth trajectory, the global industry is expected to generate $1.4 billion in 2020.

Unikrns blockchain-powered platform is tapping into this growth industry, offering services such as skill and spectator betting applications, a tournament series, team ownership, a casino group and multimedia content for the esports fanbase.

Along with launching an initial coin offering (ICO) in mid-September, the company has expanded its offerings to the European Union through a joint venture with RBP, a key player in the online horserace and sports betting market, and plans to launch a new skills-based product.

Expanding across the European Union comes after the platform was granted a much coveted gaming license from the Malta Gaming Authority (MGA). As one of the first European Territories to regulate online gambling, Malta has reportedly become a staunch regulatory supporter over the past several years. Today, over 100 companies currently hold a license issued by the MGA including software developers, online casinos and Remote iGaming operators.

Though obtaining a gaming license from the MGA took more than a year, for Unikrn, it has provided an opportunity to enhance their reputation as a legitimate esports wagering platform; something critical for their successful expansion and token sale. They [MGA] are by every measure the gold standard and one of of the m...

Baicalin inhibits the metastasis of highly aggressive breast cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncol Rep. 2017 Sep 28. Epub 2017 Sep 28. PMID: 29039569 Abstract Title:  Baicalin inhibits the metastasis of highly aggressive breast cancer cells by reversing epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition by targeting-catenin signaling. Abstract:  Metastasis is the main cause of death in breast cancer patients, which is due partly to the lack of effective treatment. Baicalin, a flavonoid compound isolated from the roots of Scutellaria lateriflora Georgi (Huang Qin), has recently been confirmed as an effective agent for the treatment of a variety of cancers. Yet, the effects and underlying molecular mechanisms of baicalin in regards to the metastasis of breast cancer remain unclear. In the present study, we found that baicalin had the potential to suppress the migration and invasion of highly aggressive breast cancer cells in a dose-dependent manner but had no impact on the viability of these cancer cells. Additionally, baicalin reversed the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process, as evaluated by EMT markers in breast cancer cell lines with a change from a mesenchymal feature to an epithelial type. At the same time, the expression of-catenin mRNA and protein was dose-dependently downregulated by baicalin in highly invasive breast cancer cell lines, and overexpression of -catenin by adenoviruses abolished these beneficial effects of baicalin in regards to the migration and invasion, and EMT of breast cancer cells. Furthermore, using a xenograft mouse model, baicalin markedly reduced liver and lung metastasis of breast cancer, inhibited expression of -catenin, and degraded the EMT molecules vimentin and Slug in the orthotopic tumor tissues. Taken together, all these results indicate that baicalin effectively suppresses the metastasis of breast cancer by reversing EMT, which may be mediated by downregulation of -catentin expression.

European Lawmakers Want Glyphosate Weedkiller Banned in Europe by 2020 "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Call comes within days of EU Parliamentary hearing on the Monsanto papers and glyphosates toxicity. Image source.

by GM Watch

Excerpts:

On 16 October a cross-party group of MEPs demanded a phase-out of glyphosate by December 2020. They want a ban on non-professional use of the herbicide and use in public parks or playgrounds after 15 December 2017, when the current authorisation expires. The MEPs want the Commission to withdraw its proposal for a 10-year renewal.

The MEPs also want a ban on agricultural application after 15 December 2017 in cases where integrated plant protection methods are sufficient. They are asking for Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) funds to be made available to farmers to support the transition to more sustainable methods of weed control.

In addition, the MEPs asked for a complete overhaul of the EUs risk assessment of pesticides. They want the REFIT reform of EU regulations to be used to ensure that the scientific evaluation of pesticides for regulatory approval is based only on published, peer-reviewed and independent studies commissioned by competent public authorities.

The MEPs demands appeared in a draft resolution that will be debated and voted on 19 October in the ENVI Committee.

These developments come ahead of the planned vote on the renewal of the authorisation for glyphosate in the Standing Committee (Plants, Animals, Food and Feed) on 23 October.

The MEPs draft resolution follows shortly after a joint ENVI/AGRI committee hearing in the European Parliament on the Monsanto papers and glyphosate, held on 11 October. You can watch videos of all the presentations...

NHS England proposes ban on alternative medicines; Pagans respond "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

UNITED KINGDOM A petition has been circulating around UK-based Pagan websites calling on Parliament to act in the wake of a proposed plan by the National Health Service (NHSE) England to stop prescriptions for herbal, homeopathic and other alternative forms of medicine.

[Pixabay]

Up until now, the NHSE has prescribed herbal and homeopathic remedies for patients. For example, it is used for those those patients who suffer from severe side effects caused by pharmaceutical medicines or for patients who have experienced no improvement in their health from those medicines.

In the UK, treatment is free at the point of delivery, although patients have to pay a basic fee (8.60 per item) for each prescription. This chosen route has not been without controversy historically speaking. In 2010, Tom Dolphin, a leading member of the British Medical Association described homeopathy as witchcraft.

The NHS system is partly funded by a National Insurance scheme, which British citizens pay into through wages.

While it is of course possible to take out private health insurance, the NHS was founded in order to provide for everyone, including the poorest and most marginalized members of society. The system has been extended in recent years to include some alternative treatments. Over the last 5 years, the NHSE has spent over 600,000 on homeopathic treatments.

However, as noted, there has been dissent based on the assertion that homeopathic remedies are not evidence based. Now, the NHSE is saying that prescribing homeopathic and herbal remedies is a misuse of scarce funds. NHSE chief Simon Stevens commented that at best homeopathy is a placebo.  He said that NHSE funds which could be better devoted to treatments that work.

The NHSE includes 16 other treatments in the ban and is encouraging patients to buy over-the-counter remedies for complaints, such as indigestion and sore throats with the aim of saving approximately 250 million a year. The ban covers some 17 items, including herbal medicines, Omega-3 fatty acids, liniments, and travel vaccines.

Professor Helen Stokes-Lampard, the chair of the Royal College of GPs (general practitioners), said that reducing prescription costs was desirable, but warned that the more vulnerable members of society could be significantly affected.

Stokes-Lampard said, If patients are in a p...

Somali Parents Rational Concerns About Vaccine Safety

by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
World Mercury Project

A note from the World Mercury Project Team:

In June of this year, at the invitation of the Rochester Minnesota Post-Bulletin, World Mercury Project Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. submitted the following article for publication. The newspaper had invited Mr. Kennedy to submit an editorial after he complained about inaccuracies in the papers reports on the Somali measles outbreak.

While initially agreeing to publish the article, Post-Bulletin executive editor Jay Furst ultimately declined to run the piece. The paper made the decision in late September following almost four months of revisions, discussions and email exchanges with Mr. Kennedy. Furst explained that after five months of trying, the publication had been unable to find any public health official or pro-vaccine advocate willing to write a rebuttal or refute the facts outlined by Mr. Kennedy. Mr. Furst explained that Minnesota public health officials shown the article had made a generalized complaint that it was inaccurate, but that they refused to be specific about their claims or to provide citations. None of the many public health officials and vaccine advocates contacted by the newspaper were willing to go on record or to provide a rebuttal editorial. Nevertheless, Mr. Furst explained that because of the controversial nature of this issue, the editors felt that they could not run the article without a companion rebuttal piece.

Once again, public debate regarding the safety of the $46 billion vaccine industry has been muzzled. Mr. Kennedy says that Mr. Furst was genial, diligent, and professional in all their interactions, and genuinely apologetic about the outcome. According to a Minnesota Department of Health press release, the states measles outbreak was over by the end of August with 79 confirmed measles cases and no reported deaths or disabilities.

PMID:  Mol Med Rep. 2017 Oct 10. Epub 2017 Oct 10. PMID: 29039573 Abstract Title:  Antitumor effects of baicalin on ovarian cancer cells through induction of cell apoptosis and inhibition of cell migration in vitro. Abstract:  Baicalin, an active flavone isolated from Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, has been demonstrated to induce various beneficial biochemical effects such as antiinflammatory, antiviral, and antitumor effects. However, the antitumor mechanism of baicalin is not well understood. In the present study, baicalin was demonstrated to inhibit the viabilityand migration of a widely used ovarian cancer cell line, A2780, in a dosedependent manner. MTT assays revealed that cell viability significantly decreased in ovarian cancer cells treated with baicalin compared with untreated cells, without effect on normal ovarian cells. Flow cytometric analysisindicated that baicalin suppressed cell proliferation by inducing apoptosis. The underlying mechanisms involved were indicated to be downregulation of the antiapoptotic protein Bcell lymphoma 2 apoptosis regulator and activation of caspase3 and 9. In addition, wound healing and transwell assays revealed that cell migratory potential and expression of matrix metallopeptidase (MMP)2 and MMP9 were significantly inhibited when cells were exposed to baicalin, compared with untreated cells. The present study therefore suggested that baicalin has the potential to be used in novel anticancer therapeutic formulations for treatment of ovarian cancer.

Vanilla Panna Cotta "IndyWatch Feed Food"

One of my familys favorite things to do with raw cream has also become a favorite at our Wise Traditions Conferences! This is a very easy recipe that preserves the integrity of our precious raw cream, but of course can also be made with organic cream off the shelf. Optional additions such as egg yolk, berry puree, or mint make this a very versatile dessert!

Ingredients

  • 4 cups heavy cream, divided
  • 4 tsp. gelatin
  • 1/4-1/2 cup maple syrup, honey, or coconut sap sugar 
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract or 2 tsp. extract & 2 vanilla beans, split

Soften the gelatin in 1 cup of cold cream for 5 minutes, then very gently warm the solution to fully dissolve. If using vanilla bean, add this while warming, then remove and scrape the pod, returning the vanilla bean specks to the solution. Add the rest of the ingredients, pour into ramekins or small bowls, cover with plastic wrap and chill till firm, about 2-3 hours. Top with berries, sliced or pured fruit, jam, or whatever your heart desires. Yum!

Note: I like to add 2 raw egg yolks, beaten well with the cream, to the cold ingredients before blending with the warm.

Variations:

Mocha Panna Cotta: substitute 1/2 cup strong coffee substitute (such as Dandy Blend or Cafix) for equal amount of cream. Also add 1/2 tsp. coffee extract.

Ginsenoside Rb1 and baicalin might promote the proliferation and differentiation of endogenous neural stem cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Brain Res. 2017 Oct 13. Epub 2017 Oct 13. PMID: 29038007 Abstract Title:  Baicalin and ginsenoside Rb1 promote the proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells in Alzheimer's disease model rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: This study aimed to explore the effect of ginsenoside Rb1 and baicalin on the proliferation and differentiation of neural stem cells (NSC) in Alzheimer's disease model rats.METHOD: The healthy Sprague Dawley male rats were randomly divided into 4 groups: control group, model group, ginsenoside Rb1 group and baicalin group.

Minnesota Somalis Have Worlds Highest Rate of Autism MMR Vaccine Link? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Somali Parents Rational Concerns About Vaccine Safety

by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
World Mercury Project

A note from the World Mercury Project Team:

In June of this year, at the invitation of the Rochester Minnesota Post-Bulletin, World Mercury Project Chairman Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. submitted the following article for publication. The newspaper had invited Mr. Kennedy to submit an editorial after he complained about inaccuracies in the papers reports on the Somali measles outbreak.

While initially agreeing to publish the article, Post-Bulletin executive editor Jay Furst ultimately declined to run the piece. The paper made the decision in late September following almost four months of revisions, discussions and email exchanges with Mr. Kennedy. Furst explained that after five months of trying, the publication had been unable to find any public health official or pro-vaccine advocate willing to write a rebuttal or refute the facts outlined by Mr. Kennedy. Mr. Furst explained that Minnesota public health officials shown the article had made a generalized complaint that it was inaccurate, but that they refused to be specific about their claims or to provide citations. None of the many public health officials and vaccine advocates contacted by the newspaper were willing to go on record or to provide a rebuttal editorial. Nevertheless, Mr. Furst explained that because of the controversial nature of this issue, the editors felt that they could not run the article without a companion rebuttal piece.

Once again, public debate regarding the safety of the $46 billion vaccine industry has been muzzled. Mr. Kennedy says that Mr. Furst was genial, diligent, and professional in all their interactions, and genuinely apologetic about the outcome. According to a Minnesota Department of Health press release, the states measles outbreak was over by the end of August with 79 confirmed measles cases and no reported deaths or disabilities.

Dying for Likes on Social Media "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

In the usual places were seeing the monthly Urbex (urban exploration) photographer dies in fall story making the rounds. These are guys that trespass on rooftops, on ledges, in abandoned buildings, and so on, to take photographs.

Youve probably seen their pictures. The peeling paint covered over with graffiti, the rooms filled with mysterious junk, the long, long hallway. Sometimes they bring a hot model along to decorate the scene, sometimes not.

Back up.

I was one of those amateurs, for twenty years, that was searching. Not Urbex, but I was still looking for something. I knew the iconic photos, and I could tell there was something there. Moonrise over Hernandez, Behind The Train Station, Migrant Mother, and so on. I didnt know what was there, but I wanted a piece of it, and I couldnt get it. Gear and technique didnt get the job done, tried that out thoroughly. Getting out there to shoot similar subjects also no. Not to say that I accomplished the same degree of technical perfection or of timing that the really good ones got, but enough to be certain that it didnt matter. Getting a sharper lens, timing my shots more precisely, that wasnt gonna do it because there was something else there. Something I was missing.

Projecting my own pattern onto the modern milieu, I see millions of photographers laboring away for Likes on social media, and I cannot help but think this is the same search, performed somewhat differently.

The essential difference is that if you do the marketing work (follow people, comment, like their pictures, engage, engage, engage) then you can get all the Likes you want. Its just work. Or you can buy them. The point is that if you translate your search into a search for Likes, the solution is clear and doable. You just have to do a lot of work thats got nothing to do with photography or art-making. I tried that too, but Likes were not the something I was looking for.

I cannot help but think that for most people the Likes are not enough. I offer as evidence the fact that people continue to buy new gear, they travel to new places, they experiment with new methods, new angles, new materials. Theyre still looking for something, I submit.

To be fair, many people simply enjoy the process, and more power to them. Maybe you bought the Polaroid because you j...

The Empath and the Narcissist: 14 Stages of a Damned Relationship "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Some relationships work and others dont, and that is just how things are.  However, there are many that are doomed from the start, and a relationship between an empath and a narcissist is one of those.

These two are so far apart on the spectrum that destiny has their romance falling apart before it even begins. The relationship between a narcissist and an empath is only going to damage the empath to a point where she or he is not going to recognize who they are anymore.

Opposites do attract and narcissists are drawn to empaths but that doesnt mean the relationship should actually happen. It is not even worth trying. Destruction will be all that follows.

14 Stages Of a Damned Relationship (The Empath and The Narcissist):

1. The narcissist spots the empath and the empath is instantly attracted to him or her. You see the empath falls in love quickly when someone truly sparks their flame. The narcissist does not have to work hard to develop a proper bond with the empath.

2. The empath believes that he or she has found the one. The empath truly believes true love is finally within grasp. The narcissist feeds into this illusion by making the empath feel amazing inside and out.

3. The narcissist will really put a good bit of effort into things during this time. The empath will believe that they matter and are important to the narcissist. The narcissist has everyone fooled.

4. As time goes on, the narcissist will begin to wear down the empath. The empath is slowly becoming weaker and while the narcissist says I dont want to hurt you it is all a lie. The empath will begin feeling bad for being who she or he is.

5. The empath will do whatever he or she can to try and soothe the narcissist, resolving any issues and listening without question. The empath is a giver and so that is what he or she does.

6. The narcissist takes and takes until the empath is at his or her breaking point. A good clear heart like this one is going to end up broken. The empath begins to question everything as the narcissist has delved deeper into gaslighting.

7. The relationship revolves around the narcissist and he or she makes the empath feel as if everything is their fault. The empath is afraid to stand up and fight so he or she just sits back and takes it. The empath would rather be liked than disliked, and this is a true weakness.

8. The narcissist is constantly gaining more and more control as the empath puts forth all of his or her efforts. While this is the last ditch effort from the empath, it fails, leaving the empath stuck for now.

Secret Space Program Update - (Part #2 Released) Covert Recruitment into Space Marines 20 and Back Program "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"



https://youtu.be/MunhvRi1SEU

On June 1, 1978, during the second day of bootcamp for the U.S. Marine Corps, Michael Christopher Gerloff was asked whether he wanted to go to space and serve in a 20 and back program. He recalls everything that subsequently happened during the intake process for his recruitment into the Space Marines, and has partial recall of his subsequent activities during his 20 and back service.

After ending active reserve service with the USMC Reserves (1978-1984), Gerloff went on to serve as a U.S. Army Ranger (1987-1991), and police officer with the Mountlake Terrace and Seattle Police departments (1992-2001). From 2004-2005, he served as an international police officer with the United Nations Liberia peacekeeping mission.

Gerloff has provided military and police records that corroborate key aspects of his testimony, and contain many anomalies which point to his 20 and back service. He believes that his coming forward has been sanctioned by a USMC/Department of Navy intelligence group established by President Dwight Eisenhower, which is actively promoting disclosure of a US Navy Secret Space Program.

In Part two of this five part series, Gerloff describes how he was taken by a secret underground rail system into an intake center where he signed paperwork for his 20 and back program, alongside many other young Marine recruits.


He describes some of his experiences as an intelligence officer within the USMC covert space program, and how the North Korea crisis was a signpost for a future time when he would publicly emerge in a USMC sanctioned disclosure of the Navys secret space program.

dstms ZCash Nvidia Miner v0.5.2 Available For Windows Now "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The dstms ZCash Nvidia Miner is supposed to be slightly faster than the popular and widely used EWBFs CUDA Zcash miner that has not been updated for quite some time, so you might want to give the new miner a try. Our initial tests show a bit better hashrate with the same GPU settings as with the EWBF, though the difference is not huge. Do note that dstms miner has its own specifics that you need to get used with such as the use of a separate thread for each GPU and getting 6 separate workers on the pool from one mining rig for example. The interface could also use some improvements and some color coding can further help in readability, but in general it is quite Ok even at the moment. Do note that the 64-bit Windows binary is built with Visual Studio 2015, so if you do not have the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 installed you might get an error about a missing DLL.

Benjamin Fulford - (Full Article) Summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un Being Negotiated as Khazarian Mafia Attempts to Start War Fail "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un Being Negotiated as Khazarian Mafia Attempts to Start War Fail


2017-10-16

The Khazarian mafias rule by murder, blackmail, bribery, and propaganda is being systematically dismantled in ways that can no longer be denied.

These fanatics, who wish to force human history down a path to destruction based on ancient books, have failed yet again in recent efforts to start World War 3. This was seen in North Korea, in Kurdistan, and in Iran as their increasingly desperate gambits are checked at every corner.

In the case of Iran, U.S. President Donald Trump was threatened and blackmailed into renouncing the nuclear deal with Iran, but facing opposition from the military as well as top allies, all that Trump could do was to appease the Khazarians with bellicose rhetoric. Even Trumps rhetoric was met with a statement by the leaders of top U.S. allies the UK, Germany, and France contradicting Trumps claims that Iran was breaking the nuclear deal.


The statement read in part that the deal was unanimously endorsed by the UN Security Council in Resolution 2231. The International Atomic Energy Agency has repeatedly confirmed Irans compliance with the JCPoA through its long-term verification and monitoring programme.

Cathy OBrien: Harvey Weinstein, Bill and Hillary Clinton Controlled Media "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

 

By Cathy OBrien (Former MKULTRA Mind Control Victim)

There is not enough money in the world to shut us up, Mark angrily told Harvey Weinstein soon after TRANCE Formation of America became a best selling whistleblowers book of its time. Originally intended for Congress, TRANCE had reached the public sector and word was spreading fast, catching the attention of Hollywood.

Mark and I remained skeptical that Hollywood was actually capable of releasing truth on mind control. Both of us had cause to know how the media was manipulated to suppress pertinent facts while socially engineering the populace, and Hollywood was complicit on all levels from entertainment to so-called news.

Nevertheless, upon the request of Harvey Weinstein, Mark and I had flown to Las Vegas to meet with him at the MGM Grand. We opted to meet in the lobby for security purposes, which had already inflamed Weinstein who was obviously used to having his own way.

Weinstein began by offering to buy the rights to TRANCE Formation of America and make it into a movie. Mark apprised him of laws governing whistleblowers testimony where the 1947 National Security Act was involved, and declined his offer accordingly.   Indeed, we could retire comfortably for the rest of our lives on what we were being offered, yet the price we would pay for accepting it was more. For us, silence equals death and we chose to maintain our rights to TRANCE, and thus our rights to speak out as US Government Whistleblowers.

Weinstein assured us he would maintain the integrity of the information while making it more understandable to viewers. Wise to the ways of censorship, Mark questioned how he would handle information on Bill and Hillary Clinton considering Bill Clinton was President at that time. Furious that he was being questioned, Weinstein revealed that their names would be omitted along with others.  As Mark and I gathered our documentation to leave our brief meeting with Harvey Weinstein, he offered to pay us even more for what we deemed containment.

Mark replied to Harvey Weinstein the same way he had replied to feds who offered to buy us out, There is not enough money in the world to shut us up.

Jalapeno Popper Skillet Chicken
Today I have a quick, easy and super tasty meal for you, a jalapeno popper skillet chicken aka cheesy jalapeno chicken! This chicken dinner is so easy to make! You simply cook the chicken in a skillet and then make a cheesy jalapeno sauce with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and, of course, jalapenos! These flavours are very similar to jalapeno poppers, or jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and cheddar cheese so I like to call this a jalapeno popper skillet chicken. Since I sometimes like to wrap my cheese stuffed jalapeno poppers with bacon, it makes a perfect addition to this dish! This recipe comes together in about as much time as it takes to cook some rice and steam some veggies which complete the meal and make it perfect for busy work days!

Trump Has Killed More Civilians with Illegal Drone Strikes in 9 Months Than Obama Did in 8 Years "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"



By Rachel Blevins
 
While the mainstream media focuses on anything but the current state of U.S. intervention in the Middle East, the Trump Administration is breaking records by accumulating a horrific number of civilian deaths.

Former President Obama earned the nickname of Drone King when he dramatically escalated the use of drone strikes, while also downplaying the number of innocent civilians who became collateral damage. In the two years that his administration devoted to publicly spending millions of taxpayer dollars to fight the Islamic State group, the estimated civilian death toll ranged from 2,300 to 3,400, according to Airwars, an organization tracking deaths in the war against ISIS.

President Trump has been in office for just 9 months, and he has already surpassed Obamas murderous record with estimated numbers as high as 4,500 civilian deaths.

Trump made headlines in December 2015, when he declared that if elected, he would not only kill members of ISIShe would also take out their families. He is following through on that promise, according to a report from Steven Feldstein, former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State.

Feldstein noted that researchers have documented the rise of frequent killing of entire families in likely coalition airstrikes under the Trump Administration. This trend led to the deaths of at least 57 women and 52 children in Iraq and Syria in May.

Kinkier than Thou: Pompidou Installs Doggie-Style Sculpture the Louvre Dumped "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

It turns out that those in charge at the Centre Georges Pompidou are a little less prudish than the heads of the Louvre. This week, the contemporary art museum welcomed a giant, inhabitable sculpture of two figures doing it doggie-style to its grounds, shortly after the Louvre rejected it for being too provocative.

As Hyperallergics Benjamin Sutton reported, Domestikator was originally designed by Atelier Van Lieshout in 2015 and was supposed to be included in the Louvres outdoor sculpture program, as part of the Paris FIAC art fair. The cuboid sculpture depicts a humanoid figure holding on to a four-legged creature from the back, as if penetrating it. Public outrage over its lewdness online, however, placed enough pressure on the m...

Ovarian cancer study finds origin likely starts in fallopian tubes "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

Most - and possibly all - ovarian cancers start, not in ovaries, but instead in the fallopian tubes attached to them. This is the finding of a multicenter study of ovarian cancer genetics led by researchers from Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health, and published online Oct. 17 in Nature Communications. "Based on a better understanding of its origins, our study suggests new strategies for the prevention and early detection of ovarian cancer," says senior study author Douglas A. Levine, MD, director of the Division of Gynecologic Oncology at Perlmutter and professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at NYU School of Medicine. The results revolve around the fallopian tubes, which enable egg cells that have the potential to be fertilized and become embryos - to pass from the ovaries where they are made to the uterus. The new study found that ovarian cancer cells have more in common with cells covering the tips of fallopian tubes than with those on the surface of ovaries.

When Depression Manifests as Emptiness "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Depression is a lot more than most people think. Sure, some people who are depressed feel extremely sad but depression is so much more than that.

Tons of people who have not experienced depression think it is nothing more than being down in the dumps, however, they are sadly mistaken. Being depressed is complicated, to say the least. The list of symptoms when it comes to depression is quite long and comes with many things you would never even think of.

Depression can zap you of energy, make it impossible to focus, and everyday errands can become quite the nightmare. For me and a lot of people, depression comes with a numbness I cannot find the words to describe. It is a simple feeling of not feeling anymore. It is confusing and odd.

You could be at a funeral and yet feel nothing. Most people who suffer from depression dont just feel sad, they also feel nothing. Personally, I think feeling nothing is much worse than feeling sad. When you are sad, or feeling down, at least there is a way to express such feelings. Sadly, when you feel empty, that just isnt an option.

Sure, you know something is wrong but you dont really know what to do about it. Suffering doesnt have to fit into a box of stereotypes. Suffering comes in all shapes and sizes. Some of the most common symptoms of depression go as follows.

  • Lack of interest or pleasure
  • Decrease in eating
  • Insomnia
  • Oversleeping
  • Low energy
  • Feeling guilty
  • Feeling worthless
  • Feeling empty
  • Lack of interest in usually enjoyed activities
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Fatigue
  • Restlessness
  • Unexplained physical problems

Yes, depression can cause physical problems as well. Some people experience gastric issues while others have severe headaches or even back pain. Depression is a very serious ILLNESS. Depression really can affect all aspects of a persons life.

Depression is not a one size fits all hat. It is different for everyone. Having a good support system is crucial for times when you arent feeling anything at all. I think the most important thing to remember when depression hits you hard is that you can make it through this, and you will feel again. Happiness is not out of your reach.
