Dateline, September 2018: After a heavy monsoon season, which dumped over 4,000 billion cubic millimetres of precipitation, civic authorities were severely stretched with treating flood victims and the increased cases of acute gastroenteritis, Japanese encephalitis, dengue and malaria. While some parts of the country experienced a bumper harvest, others recorded heavy flooding. Several parts in southern India and in the Indo-Gangetic plains saw 500 million people being affected by the floo. Once the flood waters receded, a heart-stopping surprise emerged. Authorities started to detect alarmingly high levels of fluoride, mercury, beta-endosulphan and heptachlor in tap and groundwater across multiple states.
October-November 2018: The winter schedule for crop burning in north India had started and thick plumes of smoke from the burning fields were asphyxiating the skies and descending like dark claws on the population across major northern Indian cities. Given cold temperatures, increased coal and wood burning had also begun. During the daytime, the intense haze cut off sunlight and made breathing difficult. At night, the roads became un-travelable and road accidents piled up unrelentingly. The Great Smog of London of 1952 paled in size and diameter compared to the area involved with smog.
December 2018: Particulate matter recorded in 2018 shot through the roof and was already 10 times higher than the previous all-time high in November 2017. National and international flights were being diverted in a chaotic ensemble that had begun to draw international attention; international businesses began evacuating families of staff; multiple embassies closed to ensure staff safety.
January 2019: A newly-released report on Indias national cancer statistics projected that the population in the country living with cancer had officially crossed 5 million and was at an inflexion point to take off sharply. The global capital of tuberculosis that India was with an incidence of 2.2 million tuberculosis cases added each year and which caused the treasury an estimated $340 billion in loss of productivity between 2004 and 2016 now had a far larger and costly health scourge cancer.
Lets hope and pray that none of these scenarios come true. Yet it is plausible that they could, at least to some extent, with natural and man-made reasons contributing to fiction becoming fact.

A womans higher fluoride levels during pregnancy are associated with some ADHD symptoms in school-aged children, according to researchers at the University of Toronto, York University and other universities.
The study, published in the journal International Environment, analyzed data from 213 mother-child pairs in the city of Mexico. The monitoring started in 1994 and continued until 2005.
Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the developing fetal nervous system can be adversely affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure, said Morteza Bashash, lead author of the study.
Tap water and dental products have been fluorinated in Canadian and US communities (also milk and table salt in some other countries) with varying amounts for more than 60 years to prevent caries. In recent years, there has been a keen debate on fluoridation of water and whether this is safe for childrens developing brains.
The research team analyzed urine samples from mothers during their pregnancy and from children aged 6-12 to measure fluoride exposure in both mothers and children. It then correlated fluoride levels in the urine with the performance of children in a variety of tests and questionnaires that measure inattention and hyperactivity.
The analysis took into account other factors known to affect the development of the nervous system such as pregnancy, pregnancy, birth weight, gender, smoking history, lead exposure, etc.
Our findings show that children with elevated prenatal fluoride exposure were more likely to experience ADHD symptoms as reported by their parents. Exposure to prenatal fluoride has been more closely related to inconsiderate behaviors and cognitive problems, but not to overactivity, said Bashash.
ADHD is the most common disorder in childhood, affecting over 5% of school-age children. Symptoms often persist in adulthood and can affect everyday life. Researchers are trying to understand the causes of ADHD in order to initiate preventive strategies for risk mitigation.
The U.K.s oldest cryptocurrency exchange has become the first company to be licensed by Gibraltars progressive blockchain legislation.
The rules are a first for Europe and highlight the British Overseas Territorys commitment to exploring technological innovations.
According to a report in the Financial Times, Coinfloor has proved itself worthy enough to receive the first licence from Gibraltar under its groundbreaking blockchain legislation.
The exchange will be regulated as a distributed ledger technology (DLT) provider.
Just as they did with online gambling early this century, Gibraltar have taken the lead when it comes to legislating the digital currency and blockchain startup space.
The British Overseas Territory has long been an attractive location for virtual casinos since it demands incredibly low taxes from firms based there. With the blockchain-specific rules introduced earlier this year, they are hoping to have similar successes with companies focusing on the fintech innovation.
The legislation is a first for Europe.
However, the likes of Malta have been working on similarly attractive regulations to try and lure startups to the island.
Some believe that Malta will eventually prove a more suitable hub for blockchain firms to base themselves since there is considerable uncertainty over how Gibraltar will be impacted by the U.K.s decision to leave the EU next spring.
Obi Nwosu, the CEO of Coinfloor, commented on the new licence to the Financial Times. He told the publication that the exchange platform was tested on nine principles.
The aim of these is to ensure that firms licensed in Gibraltar have sufficient anti-money laundering (AML) and know-your-customer (KYC) protections in place. The exchange also had to prove its security is robust enough to withstand the kind of cyber attacks that have plagued the cryptocurrency exchange industry over the years.
On Oct. 10, Blockstream revealed that the companys new product, Liquid, generated its first block on Sept. 27 and noted that a lot of the crypto-economys biggest players participated. Since Blockstream announced the launch of its federated sidechain, the technology has been praised by some and dismissed by others.
After recently introducing Blockstream Satellite, a network that broadcasts the Bitcoin Core (BTC) blockchain from space, the firms long-awaited Liquid technology has been launched. The project has been under development for years and has been introduced to the public as the worlds first production Bitcoin sidechain. Since the initial announcement, many individuals within the cryptocurrency community have been debating the legitimacy of the technology on forums and social media.
Crypto payment platform BitPay has started accepting settlements in stablecoins GUSD and USDC
Just thought I would start a daily check in for anyone who is interested. Gives you a chance to drink your coffee, or whatever type of "Monkey Juice" you prefer and get those first thing in the morning thoughts out of your head and into the forum (so that we can all laugh at you for thinking of such things so early in the morning)! Obviously, it is not early in the morning (my time MTN time zone) and I am still drinking coffee and starting to actually have thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Today launched an anthology of ~30 horror stories from multiple authors in a collection called Dark Visions, the second in the Box Under the Bed volume. Although it was edited / Arranged by Dan Alatorre, I was given a heads up by a blogger who I follow named Robbie Cheadle. Robbie and her son write childrens books for the Sir Chocolate series, which Ive read and reviewed, as well as promoted on my blog they are fantastic and deserve a lot of praise and attention. When Robbie mentioned shed written a few darker stories, I jumped on it. I knew shed written other works, but I wasnt familiar with them. Now I am as she has two in this wonderful collection. As I skimmed the table of contents, I found 4 other authors who blog that Ive followed over the last year. How fun is that!
I read all of the stories / poems. They range from 2 pages to about 20 pages, and the entire collection is probably around the 250 page mark. From light spooky stories to much darker, its range is strong and inviting. Nothing is so scary that youll run in fear, but theres a lot beyond subtle to find tantalizing. I do like this type of fiction, so it was a good fit for me. Theres also hardly any gore (none I can actually remember, but taste in this subject can be subjective and personal). Its more about pushing the envelope with the air of mystery, the hint of suspense, and the suggestion of something very bad or impacting occurring.
I wont point out any favorites since theres a lot to cover, but I will highlight Robbies pieces because I do think she deserves the attention. The first is called The Haunting of William Cheadle which makes you wonder which family member is she trying to spook? An early line: its sticky, like blood. Theres a housekeeper I pictured as a certain character from Daphne du Mauriers Rebecca who keeps someone in line. Its all covered in a fine dose of murky and sinister fog which makes for a very eerie and cool story. The other, The Willow Tree, my favorite kind, involves a doctor some...
Totalitarian Of or being a form of government in which the political authority exercises absolute control over all aspects of life and opposition is outlawed; a practitioner or supporter of such a government.
American Heritage Dictionary, 3rd Ed.
We have almost reached the point where the country can be referred to as totalitarian in accordance with the definition provided. Incrementally, it creeps forward: the soft tyranny. Curing, refining itself, and hardening, there will be a point of no return that is reacheda point where it has metastasized until it is both all encompassing and ubiquitous.
The problem is twofold: the incremental spread as mentioned, and the complacency and inability of people to recognize it for what it is. Someone posted a comment recently with a paragraph from Solzhenitsyns Gulag Archipelago where the author regretfully lamented the complacency displayed by the Russians as the country turned Communist overnight. His regret was that the citizenry could have stopped it with hatchets and pitchforks at that point if they had acted and been of one accord. I have recommended it as a must read, and strongly advise you to consider it as a window to what is happening in the U.S.
Two articles surfaced this week that are astonishing: they show the surveillance and data-collection culture that is being inflicted upon us, dulling our already stultified public into vapidity and inaction by desensitization. This latter term: the outrage of yesterday becomes the accepted and commonplace of today, and even further/worse tomorrow. Paradigm shift.

Did Meghan Markle use some clever wardrobe tricks to keep her pregnancy quiet? On Monday, it was announced she is expecting Prince Harrys child and is due next spring, putting her in her second trimester. Photos show how the Duchess of Sussex used ruffles, draping, large coats and props to hide her growing baby bump. The duchess has stayed very consistent to her style signature, stylist Brooke Jaffe told Inside Edition.

President Trumps contentious 60 Minutes interview has drawn its fair share of attention, especially for a strange painting that hangs in the White House. Citizen sleuths noticed the strange piece of art in a clip from 60 Minutes Overtime. The painting, spotted behind Trump and correspondent Leslie Stahl, shows the president surrounded by previous Republican presidents, including Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, George W. Bush and even Abraham Lincoln.
Ariana Grande and Pete Davidsons whirlwind romance seemed perfect. During their five-month romance, including a four-month engagement, the PDA-obsessed comedian and pop star got at least 15 tattoos for each other. Early on, Davidson showed off a new tattoo on his neck, a pair Grandes signature bunny ears. A photo taken six days before reports of their split showed a different tattoo on his neck. A solid black heart appeared to have covered up the bunny ears.
Days after Kanye West met with President Trump in the Oval Office, another rapper is causing outrage with a provocative video. The clip, posted to Twitter by T.I., begins with the president boarding Marine One alone. The video later cuts to T.I. in the Oval Office seated at the Resolute Desk. A model closely resembling the first lady walks in. Removing her I REALLY DONT CARE, DO U? jacket to reveal shes wearing nothing underneath, she climbs on the desk as T.I. lights a cigar.
A Florida mothers desperate search for her 10-year-old son ended with an emotional reunion. Eli Pughs mom hadnt heard from her son since before Hurricane Michael struck. He was staying with his father, Billy Pugh, in Panama City when the storm made landfall.

I dont know where they went.
Well they probably had it right the first time.

PMID: Neural Regen Res. 2018 Aug ;13(8):1375-1383. PMID: 30106049 Abstract Title: Neuroprotective effects of genistein on SH-SY5Y cells overexpressing A53T mutant-synuclein. Abstract: Genistein, a potent antioxidant compound, protects dopaminergic neurons in a mouse model of Parkinson's disease. However, the mechanism underlying this action remains unknown. This study investigated human SH-SY5Y cells overexpressing the A53T mutant of-synuclein. Four groups of cells were assayed: a control group (without any treatment), a genistein group (incubated with 20 M genistein), a rotenone group (treated with 50 M rotenone), and a rotenone + genistein group (incubated with 20 M genistein and then treated with 50 M rotenone). Alactate dehydrogenase release test confirmed the protective effect of genistein, and genistein remarkably reversed mitochondrial oxidative injury caused by rotenone. Western blot assays showed that BCL-2 and Beclin 1 levels were markedly higher in the genistein group than in the rotenone group. Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP nick end labeling revealed that genistein inhibited rotenone-induced apoptosis in SH-SY5Y cells. Compared with the control group, the expression of NFE2L2 and HMOX1 was significantly increased in the genistein + rotenone group. However, after treatmentwith estrogen receptor and NFE2L2 channel blockers (ICI-182780 and ML385, respectively), genistein could not elevate NFE2L2 and HMOX1 expression. ICI-182780 effectively prevented genistein-mediated phosphorylation of NFE2L2 and remarkably suppressed phosphorylation of AKT, a protein downstream of the estrogen receptor. These findings confirm that genistein has neuroprotective effects in a cell model of Parkinson's disease. Genistein can reduce oxidative stress damage and cell apoptosis by activating estrogen receptors and NFE2L2 channels.
Controversial economist and professor at New York Universitys Stern School of Business, Nouriel Roubini, has long been a detractor of cryptocurrencies, first warning investors against the scam in 2013.
Since his widely reported tirade against the cryptocurrency, its price has risen 11x, mainly due to increased adoption and growing promise.
Despite being undeniably wrong about cryptocurrency so far, Roubini has since doubled down on his original claims, now expanding his attack on cryptocurrency to the technology that underpins it: blockchain.
In a recent post on Project Syndicate, Roubini wrote an article titled The Big Blockchain Lie, in which he speculates that blockchain and DLT technology will shortly become obsolete.
He begins his attack on the technology by highlighting the recent cryptocurrency market crash, exclaiming that many cryptocurrencies are down 80%+ through the course of 2018, equating the price action of the volatile markets to their adoption and success as fintech products.
Roubini neglects to mention that many of these cryptocurrencies are still up significantly on a one or two-year price chart.
With regards to blockchain technology, Roubini describes it as being the last refuge of the crypto scoundrel, explaining that it is the most overhyped and least useful technology in human history, expanding on this cruel and inaccurate observation by referring to it as a glorified spreadsheet.
Nouriel also equates blockchain technology to being a sword that libertarians use to plot the destruction of governments, financial institutions, and central banks.
In practice, blockchain is nothing more than a glorified spreadsheet. But it has also become the byword for a libertarian ideology that treats all governments, central banks, traditional financial institutions, and real-world currencies as evil concentrations of power that must be destroyed. Blockchain fundamentalists ideal world is one in which all economic activity and human interactions are subject to anarchist or libertarian decentralization, he said....
On October 15, the price of Bitcoin dropped to $6,150, dangerously moving closer to its $6,000 support level which it has well maintained since early August. Due to its low volume, Bitcoin struggled to demonstrate momentum in the mid $6,000 region, failing to hold $6,550, a level it had held fairly well throughout the past

PMID: Ceska Slov Farm. 2018 ;67(1):3-13. PMID: 30157662 Abstract Title: Genistein: a promising molecule modulating tumour growth and wound healing? Abstract: Although it has been shown that oestrogen replacement therapy is able to improve wound healing, several side effects of this replacement therapy have precluded its common use in clinical practice. On the other hand, the phytoestrogen genistein (the selective oestrogen receptor modulator belonging to the group of isoflavones) has been introduced into several clinical trials to improve cancer treatment efficiency and experiments suggest its positive effect on wound healing. The main mechanisms of action, which have been elucidated so far, include induction of apoptosis, cell cycle arrest, inhibition of angiogenesis and tyrosine kinase activity as well as cancer chemoprevention and reduction of climacteric symptoms. Unfortunately, all underlying mechanism in the modulation of biological processes involved in wound healing and tumour growth are not yet fully understood. Therefore, the present review summarizes the effects of genistein on biological processes in different wound healing models and selected tumours. Key words: genistein tissue repair and regeneration carcinoma skin.
PMID: Psychiatry Investig. 2018 Sep 13. Epub 2018 Sep 13. PMID: 30205672 Abstract Title: Genistein Improves the Major Depression through Suppressing the Expression of miR-221/222 by Targeting Connexin 43. Abstract: Objective: Recent studies have indicated the possibility that genistein may improve depression via regulating the expression of miR221/222. This study is to explore whether genistein could improve depression by altering miR-221/222 levels and investigate the possible mechanisms involved in the improvement effect of genistein.Methods: The animal model of depression was established through unpredictable chronic mild stress. Nest building test and splash test were adapted to evaluate the effects of genistein on depressive symptoms in mice. qRT-PCR and western blot analysis were used to detect the expression of miR-221/222 and connexin 43 (Cx43) in the prefrontal cortex of the mice. In vitro, U87-MG astrocytes were treated with genistein and the expression of miR-221/222 and Cx43 was measured. The dual-luciferase reporter assay was used to verify whether Cx43 was a direct target of miR-221/222.Results: The behavioral tests showed that genistein could significantly reduce depression symptoms of mice, and this remission was not affected by gender. Genistein in vivo and in vitro could reduce increased levels of miR-221 and miR-222 in the prefrontal cortex of depressed mice, while upregulate Cx43 expression. Dual-luciferase reporter assay suggested Cx43 was directly regulated by miR-221/222 in astrocytes.Conclusion: Genistein can play its antidepressant effect through down-regulating miR-221/222 by targeting Cx43.

The man who created Atari has moved on to blockchain-based
gaming. Neil Bushnells X2 Games has
been acquired by Canadian-based Global Blockchain (BLOC), a
crypto investment firm, in hopes that Bushnells expertise will lead
to another gaming industry revolution this time with the help of
The move will see the Canadian company align its existing efforts to tokenize gaming platforms with X2 Games' expertise for game development.
BLOC will also merge sections of its media and entertainment business with those of X2 Games Corp. and create a subsidiary for its enterprise and exchange activities, to be run by BLOC's current management and operational team.
X2 Games is a blockchain-based games publisher that builds multiplayer gaming experiences, leveraging blockchain technology to create unique gaming experiences for conventional and experimental platforms. X2 Games was created by American businessman and founder of Atari Inc. Nolan Bushnell and acclaimed digital animator Zai Ortiz, known for creating visuals for Iron Man's J.A.R.V.I.S system holograms among others.
Bushnell, known as the "Godfather of the Video Game Industry," is a Video Game Hall of Famer and has been included on Newsweek's list of the 50 People Who Changed America. Bushnell is no stranger to creating blockbuster games with unique "never-been-seen-before-designs." In addition to launching the first Atari 2600 console into the home gaming market, Bushnell also created Chuck E. Cheese, a video game entertainment center hybrid.
With the acquisition, Blockchain Global will advise X2 Games' team on the integration of blockchain technology in video games. Bushnell will also become co-chairman of BLOC.
Bushnell hailed the alliance saying the creativity of both companies will drive them forward, in a statement made in the release.
Without that first charge of creativity, nothing else can take place. This acquisition by BLOC will integrate X2 Games innovative game development studio and intellectual property within BLOCs portfolio of blockchain assets allowing new and revolutionary games to be developed together.
BLOC President and CEO Shidan Gouran told Bitcoin Magazine that BLOC is passionate about integrating the blockchain into real business use cases.

Abstract: Breast cancer (BC) is a prominent source of cancer mortality in women throughout the world.-Sitosterol-d-glucoside (-SDG), a newly isolated phytosterol from sweet potato, possibly displays potent anticancer activity. However, the probable anticancer mechanisms involved are still unclear. This study sought to study how -SDG from sweet potato affects two BC cell lines (MCF7 and MDA-MB-231) and nude mice bearing MCF7-induced tumors. In addition, we assessed how -SDG affects tumor suppressor miR-10a and PI3K-Akt signaling in BC cells. Cell viability and proliferation were determined via MTT and colony-formation assays, and apoptosis was quantified by Hoechst staining and flow cytometry. In addition, miR-10a expression and apoptosis-related protein levels were measured. Our study indicated that -SDG exhibited cytotoxic activities on MCF7 and MDA-MB-231 cells via inducing apoptosis and activating caspase proteases in these cells. Furthermore, the experimental results in nude mice bearing MCF7-induced tumors demonstrated that oral -SDG administration at medium (60 mg/kg) or high (120 mg/kg) doses was sufficient to substantially impair the growth of tumors and to decrease the levels of CEA, CA125, and CA153 by 64.71, 74.64, and 85.32%, respectively, relative to thoseof the controls ( P

Dr Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes, but subsequently renounced his work. He explains why we should be wary of the products he created
Dr Caius Rommens developed GMO potatoes for the Idaho-based agbiotech company Simplot. The chief genetic modification he introduced was to silence the potatoes melanin (PPO) gene.
This gene, when operative, causes potatoes to discolour when bruised. The GMO potatoes do not discolour when bruised. They have therefore been marketed as bruise-resistant and are being sold without GMO labels in the US and Canada under innocuous-sounding names like Innate, Hibernate, and White Russet.
After finding that most GMO varieties were stunted, chlorotic, mutated, or sterile, and many of them died quickly, like prematurely-born babies, Dr Rommens renounced his genetic engineering career and wrote a book about his experiences, Pandoras Potatoes: The Worst GMOs.
In an interview with GMWatch, Dr Rommens discussed the risks to health posed by the GMO potatoes he created.
GMW: In your article for Independent Science News, you mention that The GMO potatoes are likely to accumulate at least two toxins that are absent in normal potatoes. Can you tell us which toxins these are and what health problems they may cause or exacerbate?
About a year ago, I studied a research article written by som...

Alec Baldwin recently said that we should overthrow the United States government. In an orderly and formal way, and lawful way, we need to overthrow the government of the United States under Donald Trump, Baldwin said Sunday night at a major fundraising dinner for New Hampshires Democratic Party.
Less than 24 hours after reprising his Emmy Award-winning parody of President Trump on Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin took aim at the president again, reported Fox News. Baldwin also said that his role as Trump on SNL wasnt supposed to last as long as it has. Just three shows, he said, as Baldwin recalled a moment of his past when SNL producer Lorne Michaels tried to convince the actor to portray then-candidate Donald Trump. Till the election, he said. Then hell be gone, he said. Three shows. It will be fun, he said.
But Trumps victory over Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election resulted in an extension of Baldwins run on the late-night comedy show which has been extended and included this weekends opening sketch about Trumps recent meeting with rapper Kanye West.
All of this was said moments before Baldwin insisted that through voting for Democrats, we should overthrow the government. He then attempted to rally the left-leaning mob of a crowd to vote in next months midterm elections, saying this election and the one that follows in 2020 will be the most consequential elections since the election of FDR. It is time to overthrow the government of Donald Trump not in a violent way or unlawful way but it must be overthrown nonetheless.
Baldwins almost 20-minute long speech ended with him saying, Lets make America great again by making Donald Trump a casino operator again, he said. Every day I wake up, I still am horrified, Baldwin continued. I feel like Im in some dream that Trump is president of the United States. I almost cant even say it.
Baldwin has been a long time Democrat who champions for bigger and more freedom trampling government. Baldwin has long been a backer of Democratic candidates and causes and in 2000, he infamously declared that hed move to Canada if then-Texas Governor George W. Bush won the presidential election. Though Bush did win, Baldwin didnt move across the northern border.

Fidelity Investments has announced that its launching a new cryptocurrency trading arm, called Fidelity Digital Asset Services, that will handle cryptocurrency custody and trading for its customers.
Today, Boston-based asset manager responsible for $7.2 trillion in customer assets, Fidelity Investments, revealed a separate new branch focusing on cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum called Fidelity Digital Asset Services.
The new subsidiary is the first-of-its-kind among traditional Wall Street firms, and will offer both asset custody and trade execution for institutional investors.
Fidelity Digital Assets will allow institutional investors to trade cryptocurrencies across multiple exchanges that comply with the Fidelity standard using its existing internal crossing engine and smart order routing, but stopped short at revealing which exchanges have earned that seal of approval.
Fidelitys onboarding procedures for counterparties involves a deep dive into an exchanges regulatory procedures and financial strength, among other analysis.
We are certainly only going to connect to those counterparties that we feel good about, explained Tom Jessop, head of Fidelity Digital Assets.
In addition to executing trades for its customers, the new crypto branch will also offer an offline, vaulted cold storage custody solution, that when paired with Fidelitys traditional security standards, could become the missing link that finally lures institutional investors into the cryptocurrency market.
The lack of both a well-known traditional name entering the space and strong custody solution have long been cited as the two key reasons institutional investors have been hesitant to enter the space.
We saw that there were certain things institutions needed that only a firm like Fidelity could provide, Jessop explained.
The new subsidiary head added that its already working with 13,000 institutional customers.
The Bank of Zambia has started to clamp down on cryptocurrency-related businesses, mere days after declaring that it does not view digital coins such as BTC as legal tender. The crackdown began on Oct. 14, when the central bank announced an investigation into Heritagecoin Resources Ltd. for allegedly laundering money, according to local media reports.
In addition to the ongoing probe, the Lusaka-based fintech startup faces allegations that it has taken on traditional banking activities, such as accepting deposits something it is not certified to do.
The company has since been offering financial services and collecting deposits from members of the public, Kamufinsa Manchishi, a spokesperson for the Zambian Drug Enforcement Commission, told the Lusaka Times. The organization, which is assisting with the investigation into Heritagecoin, did not reveal the amount of money involved.
PMID: Carcinogenesis. 2011 Dec ;32(12):1872-80. Epub 2011 Sep 26. PMID: 21948980 Abstract Title: Polyphenol-rich sweet potato greens extract inhibits proliferation and induces apoptosis in prostate cancer cells in vitro and in vivo. Abstract: Sweet potato (Ipomoea batatas) leaves or greens, extensively consumed as a vegetable in Africa and Asia, are an excellent source of dietary polyphenols such as anthocyanins and phenolic acids. Here, we show that sweet potato greens extract (SPGE) has the maximum polyphenol content compared with several commercial vegetables including spinach. The polyphenol-rich SPGE exerts significant antiproliferative activity in a panel of prostate cancer cell lines while sparing normal prostate epithelial cells. Mechanistically, SPGE perturbed cell cycle progression, reduced clonogenic survival, modulated cell cycle and apoptosis regulatory molecules and induced apoptosis in human prostate cancer PC-3 cells both in vitro and in vivo. SPGE-induced apoptosis has a mitochondrially mediated component, which was attenuated by pretreatment with cyclosporin A. We also observed alterations of apoptosis regulatory molecules such as inactivation of Bcl2, upregulation of BAX, cytochrome c release and activation of downstream apoptotic signaling. SPGE caused DNA degradation as evident by terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated dUTP-nick-end labeling (TUNEL) staining of increased concentration of 3'-DNA ends. Furthermore, apoptotic induction was caspase dependent as shown by cleavage of caspase substrate, poly (adenosine diphosphate-ribose) polymerase. Oral administration of 400 mg/kg SPGE remarkably inhibited growth and progression of prostate tumor xenografts by69% in nude mice, as shown by tumor volume measurements and non-invasive real-time bioluminescent imaging. Most importantly, SPGE did not cause any detectable toxicity to rapidly dividing normal tissues such as gut and bone marrow. This is the first report to demonstrate the in vitro and in vivoanticancer activity of sweet potato greens in prostate cancer.

Digital assets platform OKEx has added four stablecoins to its
According to a support notice published by OKEx, the Hong Kong-based cryptocurrency exchange says that TrustToken's TrueUSD (TUSD), Circle's USDCoin (USDC), the Gemini Dollar (GUSD) and Paxos Standard Token (PAX) are now live on the platform. These four will join Tethers USDT, the only stablecoin listed on the exchange prior to this announcement.
With the addition of these assets, OKEx now features more stablecoins than any other cryptocurrency exchange.
TUSD, which was launched in March 2018, is currently trading on popular exchanges Bittrex, Digifinex and Binance. In addition to this, other newcomer, fiat-collateralized stablecoins USDC, GUSD and PAX came to market last month. Circles USDCoin is available on Poloniex, the exchange acquired by Circle earlier this year and on South Korean Hanbitco and Everbloom.
Paxos, which issues and redeems PAX tokens one-to-one against the U.S. dollar, trades on Binance, while the Winklevoss' GUSD is available on its native Gemini exchange, HitBTC, Bibox, LATOKEN and others.
OKEx, the second largest global exchange by volume according to CoinMarketCap, will start accepting deposits for the four new listings today, October 15, 2018, at 09:00 UTC. The digital asset platform will begin spot trading for the token pairs against bitcoin and tether tomorrow, October 16, 2018, at 06:00 UTC.
The listing of these tokens comes on the heels of tether (USDT) losing its peg, falling by as much as 8 percent against the dollar on October 15, 2018. At press time, Tether is trad...
PMID: World J Gastroenterol. 2013 Jun 7 ;19(21):3300-8. PMID: 23745032 Abstract Title: Anticancer effects of sweet potato protein on human colorectal cancer cells. Abstract: AIM: To investigate the effects of proteins purified from sweet potato storage roots on human colorectal cancer cell lines.METHODS: 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay, Hoechst 33258 nuclear staining and Boyden transwell chamber methods were used to determine whether purified sweet potato protein (SPP) from fresh sweet potato roots affected proliferation, migration and invasion, respectively, of human colorectal cancer SW480 cells in vitro. The inhibitory effects of SPP on growth of human colorectal cancer HCT-8 cells intraperitoneally xenografted in nude mice and spontaneous lung metastasis of murine Lewis lung carcinoma 3LL cells subcutaneously transplanted in C57 BL/6 mice were also investigated in vivo.RESULTS: SPP inhibited the proliferation of SW480 cells in a dose-dependent manner, with an IC50 value of 38.732mol/L (r (2) = 0.980, P = 0.003) in the MTT assay. Hoechst 33258 nuclear staining further revealed inhibition of cell viability and induction of apoptosis by SPP. The transwell assay disclosed significant reduction in migrated cells/field by 8 mol/L SPP (8.4 2.6 vs 23.3 5.4, P = 0.031) andinvaded cells/field through the ECMatrix by 0.8 mol/L SPP, compared with the control (25.2 5.2 vs 34.8 6.1, P = 0.038). Both intraperitoneal (ip) and intragastric (ig) administration of SPP led to significant suppression of growth of intraperitoneally inoculated HCT-8 cells in nude mice to58.0% 5.9% (P = 0.037) and 43.5% 7.1% (P = 0.004) of the controls, respectively, after 9 d treatment. Bloody ascites additionally disappeared after ip injection of trypsin inhibitor. Notably, ig and ip administration of SPP induced a significant decrease in spontaneous pulmonary metastatic nodule formation in C57 BL/6 mice (21.0 12.3 and 27.3 12.7 nodules/lung vs 42.5 4.5 nodules/lung in controls, respectively, P
A BRIGHT SPOT IN CHILE
I recently visited Chile, which I found terribly sad and discouraging. I went to take a course on a farm, a permaculture farm, and they gave us all of the wrong stuff to eat. And this is one of the most known permaculture farms here in Latin America. To visit that farm and find the food completely wrong was something I didnt expect.
However, in the middle of that craziness I met a guy living there who understood me. Pipe knows about WAPF and follows a WAPF diet! Here he is holding up some rendered pork fat, which he has been making since he started raising pigs.
He really gets it and told me the owners of the farm wont change the diet since people around permaculture are so into vegetarianism and not really interested in real food.

RAW MILK MIRACLE
I have been taking care of a relative whose lowfat, low-salt, soy- and almond-milk laden, vegan diet finally caught up with her. She was dying of multiple causes including severe hypothyroidism, severe anorexia, lung tuberculosis, sarcoidosis and squamous cell carcinoma. You could almost say she was dying of malnutrition, if not outright starvation. All this of course, peppered with the usual toxic cast of other chemicals like vaccines and Roundup. Could anyone survive this onslaught of debilitating conditions?
Her entire abdominal area, neck to groin, was filled with tumors. Kaiser doctors gave up on her, giving her three to six months to live, with an emphasis on the former. This was in June. Mercifully, she rejected chemo and radiation, when the doctor told her she was too fragile and too advanced for either...
PMID: Int J Cancer. 2011 Sep 15 ;129(6):1477-84. Epub 2011 Jan 12. PMID: 21792884 Abstract Title: Occupational and residential exposure to electromagnetic fields and risk of brain tumors in adults: a case-control study in Gironde, France. Abstract: The etiology of brain tumors remains largely unknown. Among potential risk factors, exposure to electromagnetic fields is suspected. We analyzed the relationship between residential and occupational exposure to electromagnetic field and brain tumors in adults. A case-control study was carried out in southwestern France between May 1999 and April 2001. A total of 221 central nervous system tumors (105 gliomas, 67 meningiomas, 33 neurinomas and 16 others) and 442 individually age- and sex-matched controls selected from general population were included. Electromagnetic field exposure [extremely low frequency (ELF) and radiofrequency separately was assessed in occupational settings through expert judgement based on complete job calendar, and at home by assessing the distance to power lines with the help of a geographical information system. Confounders such as education, use of home pesticide, residency in a rural area and occupational exposure to chemicals were taken into account. Separate analyses were performed for gliomas, meningiomas and acoustic neurinomas. A nonsignificant increase in risk was found for occupational exposure to electromagnetic fields [odds ratio (OR = 1.52, 0.92-2.51)]. This increase became significant for meningiomas, especially when considering ELF separately [OR = 3.02; 95 percent confidence interval (95% CI) =1.10-8.25]. The risk of meningioma was also higher in subjects living in the vicinity of power lines (
We all tend to pay much attention to acquiring stuff physical things in order to be more prepared, but we often fail to prepare ourselves more, physically and mentally. You need to be preparing for the things that are most likely in your regular, everyday life. Then expect that youll be under immense pressure.
Everything is different when youre under pressure but you can prepare yourself for this too.
There are many ways how we can prepare ourselves more, simple and fun things like hiking or camping are great to test some of your skills and gear too. A popular myth is that we have to be physically prepared only through more macho activities like martial arts or shooting at the range and similar.
It is person-to-person based and sometimes we are limited by our own living conditions to practice some of the above activities. If you are living a day to day life in a big city with your family and kids, working a regular job, you find yourself very easily in a situation where all your prepping activities are based on watching YouTube videos or similar maybe, and finding a way to implement that into your own settings.
You have to prep based on your everyday life and situations.
Actually, you need to prep based on your own situation, and if that means day to day job, big city, kids, public transport you need to implement all those factors in your prep plan.
We have people living in cities that form their survival philosophy based on the idea that they gonna be surviving in wilderness, or people preparing for end of the world because they think asteroid will impact while they do not see that they are living actually next to the part of city where organized crime rules.
If organized crime is very powerful now, they should conclude that it is going to be much stronger once when the SHTF.
We should all prep for the time where there are not enough resources for you and all the people around you. Because when that happens, violence will come.
Of course, you need to know how to start fire or set up a shelter in woods simply because you may find yourself in the woods and wilderness because you ran away from the city when SHTF.
But it makes sense to pay more...
Pregnant women with higher levels of fluoride in their urine may be more likely to have school-age children with certain symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), such as inattentiveness and cognitive problems, according to a new Canadian study led by researchers at the University of Toronto and York University.
The findings are published in the journal Environment International.
Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the growing fetal nervous system may be negatively affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure, said Dr. Morteza Bashash, the studys lead author and researcher at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health at the University of Toronto.
The study analyzed data from 213 mother-child pairs in Mexico City who are enrolled in the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project. The project recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005 and has continued to follow the women and their children ever since.
Tap water and dental products have been fluoridated in communities in Canada and the United States (as well as milk and table salt in some other countries) by varying amounts for more than 60 years with the goal of preventing cavities.
In recent years, fierce debate over the safety of water fluoridation particularly for childrens developing brains has led researchers to investigate the issue and provide evidence to inform national drinking water standards.
The research team included experts from the University of Toronto, York University, the National Institute of Public Health of Mexico, University of Michigan, Indiana University, the University of Washington and Harvard School of Public Health. The team analyzed urine samples that had been obtained from mothers during pregnancy and from their children between six and 12 years of age to reconstruct personal measures of fluoride exposure for both mother and child.
The team then looked at how urinary fluoride levels related to the childs performance on a variety of tests and questionnaires that measure inattention and hyperactivity, and provide overall scores related to ADHD.
The researchers adjusted for other factors known to impact neurodevelopment, such as gestational age at birth, birth weight, birth order, sex, maternal marital status, smoking history, age at delivery, education, socioeconomic status and lead exposure.
Our findings show that children with elevated prenatal exposure to fluoride were more likely to show symptoms of ADHD as reported by parents. Prenatal fluoride exposure was more strongly associated with inattentive behavi...
Fidelity Investments has launched a new business to allow its
institutional clients to trade in digital currencies such as
bitcoin, a press release
reveals. Known as Fidelity Digital Asset Services, LLC, the
company will purchase and sell cryptocurrencies for family offices,
hedge funds and other monetary ventures.
All coins will be sourced from large, over-the-counter digital exchanges and housed using cold storage to ensure customer funds always remain safe. To start, Fidelitys services will be limited to bitcoin and ether, though representatives say theyre looking to expand their offerings in 2019.
Our goal is to make digitally native assets, such as bitcoin, much more accessible to investors, chairman and chief executive of Fidelity, Abigail Johnson, said in a statement.
Volatility in crypto prices, along with the lack of custody and other banking services witnessed in the digital currency space, is a point of concern for institutional investors, one that has prevented many of them from feeling comfortable enough to take part in the cryptocurrency space. Fidelity is hoping to change all that by allowing trades and sales in a more traditional, regulated environment and boosting the market maturity of both bitcoin and ether.
Fidelity Digital Assets already has 100 employees on its roster, and it will be headed by Tom Jessop, managing director at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and former president of the tech startup Chain.
We started exploring blockchain and digital assets several years ago, and these efforts have been successful in helping us understand and advance our thinking around cryptocurrencies. The creation of Fidelity Digital Assets is the first step in a long-term vision to create a full-service enterprise-grade platform for digital assets, Jessop stated in the press release.
The company is one of the largest asset management firms in the world, managing just under $7 trillion in combined customer assets. It also serves over 13,000 separate institutions.
Last year, Fidelity began allowing its retail clients to view their holdings of bitcoin and other digital currencies hosted on Coinbases website. It was also alleged to be...

A group of New York Citys Mt. Sinai Medical School researchers set out to analyze why and how coconut oil affects Alzheimers Disease (AD) patients favorably. They acknowledged some efficacy from coconut oil, and they wanted to know more.
Since most drug trials to develop an Alzheimers drug have failed miserably, the motivation to study coconut oil in order to understand how it positively affects AD was probably motivated by a desire to patent a new drug that could work similar to coconut oil, a natural food that cannot be patented.
Their research was based on earlier animal studies of virgin coconut oils effect on mouse models of coconut oil as well as other in vitro (lab culture) studies. The researchers also acknowledged the existence of many anecdotal testimonies of AD (Alzheimers disease) patients, such as this one.
The Mt. Sinai report was published in the journal Science Direct, Brain Research with the title: Coconut oil decreases expression of amyloid precursor protein (APP) and secretion of amyloid peptides through inhibition of ADP-ribosylation factor 1 (ARF1).
This study demands interpretations of terms used for those of us who arent biologists.
Amyloid plaque has been found postmortem in the brains of Alzheimers victims. It is a waxy substance that inhibits the brains neurotransmissions and causes neuron dysfunction and degeneration.
Amyloid precursor protein (APP) is a protein that is linked with the development of Alzheimers disease in humans. It generates A (amyloid beta) peptides within brain cells that are responsible for forming plaques in brain tissues of Alzheimers victims....
PMID: Environ Res. 2017 08 ;157:190-197. Epub 2017 May 30. PMID: 28575784 Abstract Title: Exposure to extremely low and intermediate-frequency magnetic and electric fields among children from the INMA-Gipuzkoa cohort. Abstract: Detailed assessment of exposure to extremely low frequency (ELF) and intermediate frequency (IF) fields is essential in order to conduct informative epidemiological studies of the health effects from exposure to these fields. There is limited information available regarding ELF electric fields and on both magnetic and electric field exposures of children in the IF range. The aim of this study was to characterize ELF and IF exposure of children in the Spanish INMA cohort. A combination of spot and fixed measurements was carried out in 104 homes, 26 schools and their playgrounds and 105 parks. Low levels of ELF magnetic fields (ELF-MF) were observed (with the highest 24-h time-weighted average (TWA) exposure being 0.15T in one home). The interquartile range (IQR) of ELF electric fields (ELF-EF) ranged from 1 to 15V/m indoors and from 0.3 to 1.1V/m outdoors and a maximum value observed was 55.5V/m in one school playground. IQR ranges for IF magnetic and electric fields were between 0.02 and 0.23T and 0.2 and 0.5V/m respectively and maximum values were 0.03T and 1.51V/m in homes. Correlations between magnetic and electric fields were weak for ELF (Spearman 0.04-0.36 in different settings) and moderate for IF (between 0.28 and 0.75). Children of INMA-Gipuzkoa cohort were exposed to very low levels of ELF-MF in all settings and to similar levels of ELF-EF compared to the range of previously reported levels, although somewhat higher exposures occurred at home. Children enrolled to our study were similarly exposed to IF in all settings.

Tethers peg is slipping, and an exchange-wide firesale has led
to major price discrepancies between bitcoins BTC/USDT and BTC/USD
trading pairs across the market.
In the early hours of October 15, 2018, Tethers USDT was trading at $0.92, the lowest asking price the coin has seen in 18 months. At the time of writing, the stablecoin still hasnt made up enough ground to retain its $1 peg. On most markets, its currently trading around $0.96, though this figure is tied to bitcoin trading pairs. Against the USD on Kraken and Bittrex, it is trading at $0.92 and $0.90, respectively.
A combination of exchange activity, related FUD and scuttlebutt could be the catalysts behind the sell-off. Bitfinex suspended fiat deposits on October 15, 2018, for certain customer accounts in the face of processing complications, a blog post reveals. In addition, Binance temporarily suspended USDT withdrawals for wallet maintenance due to network congestion, a measure taken after the exchange extinguished rumors that said it would soon delist tether.
The discount has bitcoin trading at something of a premium against tether on exchanges with USDT/BTC trading pairs. On Binance, Huobi and Bittrex, for example, 1 BTC is trading for nearly 6,700 USDT.
Contrast this with bitcoins price in USD/BTC markets and it becomes clear that tethers sell-off is distorting prices across exchanges. On Coinbase Pro, Kraken and Gemini, bitcoin is trading at roughly $6,400 against USD pairs, an indication that bitcoins proper asking price is much lower than its oft-cited USDT pair would advertise. This has led to an inflated price averaged on CoinMarketCap of $6,650.
Its important to note that the premium bitcoin is going for on tether-listed exchanges is less of a premium and more of a price distortion, given that tether is trading below its peg. The price of bitcoin for these pairs has spiked as a result of the sell-off, but if you sold USDT for BTC and then attempted to resell this BTC for USD, the arbitrage opportunity would be nullified by the price differential between BTC/USDT and BTC/USD pairs.
Notably, Bitfinexs USD/BTC pair is out of line with other exchanges that offer fiat pairs for...

After last weeks price drop, investors have become optimistic in the positive short-term trend of crypto.
The new bull run is being led by Bitcoin, which has managed to regain and exceed its former bottom of $6,000.
According to the data provided by Bitfinex, BTC against Tether (USDT) exceeded $7,700. This unexpected surge in the price of Bitcoin was formed due to the drop in the price of Tether. The same situation was witnessed on several other exchanges, all of which offer Tether trading on their platforms.
Bitfinex and Tether share a unique connection, due to the fact that Bitfinex reportedly operates Tether LLC the company that oversees USDT development. Some reports claim that Bitfinex failed to properly audit Tether, which has caused a massive premium for coins such as Bitcoin.
Due to numerous issues with Tether, like rumors of USDT not being entirely backed by the USD, a lot of investors have sold off their USDT.
@Tether_to is collapsing and cryptos are pumping!! People panic selling USDT? Hope you all got rid of #USDT already. Wouldn't touch them with a ten-foot pole right now https://t.co/17pM660w50 pic.twitter.com/SIPopuPb1g

After abandoning Tether, many have turned to alternative stablecoins such as TrueUSD (TUSD), as well as regular cryptocurrencies.
As a result of a dump, USDT has seen a significant price drop, which has left the dollar-backed coins price below $0.96. This move was followed by the formation of a premium against USDT on most Tether-supporting exchanges.

But the implications of the Bavarian elections go far beyond Germany they are shaking the very foundations of the EU and ever globalism, itself. Five years ago, the largest political party in Bavaria, the CSU the sister party of German Prime Minister Angel Merkels party took a crushing defeat going from a near outright majority of 47.7% last election down to between 35 and 39% this election depending or varying reports. Twenty percent of the vote has yet to be tallied. The big winners was the far left Green party. In the 2013 election, it received between 15 and 18% - nearly doubling its count last time. The big surprise is the fast-rising, right-wing Alternative for Germany party or AfD - which doubled its vote up to 11%, giving it representatives in the Bavarian parliament for the first time. AfD has been the most outspoken party against the open borders policy of Prime Minister Merkel. SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: -- Nobel Gold.

PMID: Bioelectromagnetics. 2014 Apr ;35(3):201-9. Epub 2014 Jan 31. PMID: 24482293 Abstract Title: Maternal residential proximity to sources of extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields and adverse birth outcomes in a UK cohort. Abstract: Studies have suggested that exposure to extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) may be associated with increased risk of adverse birth outcomes. This study tested the hypothesis that close proximity to residential ELF-EMF sources is associated with a reduction in birth weight and increased the risk of low birthweight (LBW), small for gestational age (SGA) and spontaneous preterm birth (SPTB). Closest residential proximity to high voltage cables, overhead power lines, substations or towers during pregnancy was calculated for 140356 singleton live births between 2004 and 2008 in Northwest England. Associations between proximity and risk for LBW, SGA and SPTB were calculated, as well as associations with birth weight directly. Associations were adjusted for maternal age, ethnicity, parity and for part of the population additionally for maternal smoking during pregnancy. Reduced average birth weight of 212g (95% confidence interval (CI): -395 to -29g) was found for close proximity to a source, and was largest for female births (-251g (95% CI: -487 to -15g)). No statistically significant increased risks for any clinical birth outcomes with residential proximity of 50m or less were observed. Living close (50m or less) to a residential ELF-EMF source during pregnancy is associated with suboptimal growth in utero, with stronger effects in female than in males. However, only a few pregnant women live this close to high voltage cables, overhead power lines, substations or towers, likely limiting its public health impact.

However, just as happened 2 years ago, the polls are suddenly shifting towards the red. Why? As we explained 2 years ago, most pollsters lean left, but try to hide it. They can easily and non-transparently manipulate the outcomes of their polls simply by adjusting their skews. There are many ways to skew polls. Today, the Washington Examiner illuminated one method under-sampling. In this case, mainstream polls have been using 29% more Democrats to create their results than Republicans. Well, thats one way. A bit more subtle is predicting turnouts of the two parties on election day. So what if one pollster predicts a 56% turnout for Republicans while another predicts a 48% turnout? However, there are dozens of other really complex ways to do this. However, these fictitious polls have one big problem. On election day, they have to do their best to actually predict the real outcome because thats the number their sales staff will trumpet for the next year. They can say anything they want to in order to sway the American public one way or the other until the morning of election day. Then they have to actually tell the truth as best as they can.

PMID: Environ Int. 2014 Aug ;69:51-7. Epub 2014 May 7. PMID: 24815339 Abstract Title: Residential proximity to electromagnetic field sources and birth weight: Minimizing residual confounding using multiple imputation and propensity score matching. Abstract: Studies have suggested that residential exposure to extremely low frequency (50 Hz) electromagnetic fields (ELF-EMF) from high voltage cables, overhead power lines, electricity substations or towers are associated with reduced birth weight and may be associated with adverse birth outcomes or even miscarriages. We previously conducted a study of 140,356 singleton live births between 2004 and 2008 in Northwest England, which suggested that close residential proximity ( 50 m) to ELF-EMF sources was associated with reduced average birth weight of 212 g (95%CI: -395 to -29 g) but not with statistically significant increased risks for other adverse perinatal outcomes. However, the cohort was limited by missing data for most potentially confounding variables including maternal smoking during pregnancy, which was only available for a small subgroup, while also residual confounding could not be excluded. This study, using the same cohort, was conducted to minimize the effects of these problems using multiple imputation to address missing data and propensity score matching to minimize residual confounding. Missing data were imputed using multiple imputation using chained equations to generate five datasets. For each dataset 115 exposed women (residing 50 m from a residential ELF-EMF source) were propensity score matched to 1150 unexposed women. After doubly robust confounder adjustment, close proximity to a residential ELF-EMF source remained associated with a reduction in birth weight of -116 g (95% confidence interval: -224:-7 g). No effect was found for proximity 100 m compared to women living further away. These results indicate that although the effect size was about half of the effect previously reported, close maternal residential proximity to sources of ELF-EMF remained associated with suboptimal fetal growth.
PMID: Environ Monit Assess. 2018 Aug 23 ;190(9):544. Epub 2018 Aug 23. PMID: 30140955 Abstract Title: Exposure levels of ELF magnetic fields in the residential areas of Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality. Abstract: The aim of this study was to evaluate the exposure levels of ELF magnetic fields in the residential areas of Mangaung metropolitan municipality. Fifteen residential sites were randomly selected in Bloemfontein, nine in Botshabelo and six in Thaba Nchu areas of Mangaung. Measurements were collected at the distances of 3 m, 6 m and 9 m outside electrical substations, near every corner, using a Trifield meter model XE 100. Measurements were also collected from four different corners inside substations, near barrier screening and were referred to as a distance of 0 m (reference point). The results indicated a non-significant difference among 15 residential areas; BRE1 to BRE15 and six areas; TNRE1 to TRNE6. The exposure levels were significantly high in one residential area BORE1 (0.55 T) as compared to other residential sites in Botshabelo (p
If you are a young fortune-hunter toiling away on a computer in a basement, the prospect of death probably isnt among your top considerations. Equally, if the main draw to crypto is its relative privacy, you may not be particularly eager to share your private keys with your loved ones, as a hacker could sift through your papers, weaponize your keys and empty your savings.
Most privacy-obsessed, wealth-chasing geeks are used to keeping their private keys a total secret. But when the Grim Reaper shows up unannounced, the family of an anonymous crypto-millionaire can be left without access to their relatives riches. In one of the most widely publicized recent examples, paranoid U.S. investor Matthew Mellon died earlier this year, leaving few clues to a crypto fortune reportedly valued at more than $500 million.
Odd-looking structures which appear to be artificial have been spotted on the Moon using Google tools. This discovery has been leading some alien conspiracy theorists to believe that extraterrestrials have established a lunar base or several of them.
According to The Express UK, UFO hunter Sandra Elena Andrade wrote about the discovery on her YouTube page. Large buildings in the craters of the Moon were discovered by the Argentine researcher Marcelo Irazusta, Andrade wrote. The images are very clear. Some with a pyramid shape. Their forms show that they were built by [sic] intelligent civilization.
One of the coordinates given by the user really does look like an alien base could be there, according to The Express, while others seem to show bizarre pyramid structures. To see for yourself some of the structures, the coordinates for Google Moon are:

The father of modern medicine was way ahead of his time. While gut health has not been linked to every disease (yet!), a growing body of research into the gut microbiota is revealing just how important the communities of bacteria that reside there are to our overall health.
Obesity is one serious health issue that studies have linked with gut bacteria imbalances.
When we eat food, our gut breaks it down into small pieces. Only the smallest pieces get absorbed into our blood. The rest is eliminated as waste material. In other words, not all of the calories in the food we eat get into our body and increase our weight. The gut bacteria help break down food. Some bacteria are better able to chop food into those smallest pieces that get digested, add calories to our body and thereby tend to increase our weight. Theoretically, if our guts have more of those kinds of bacteria, it should be harder to lose weight.
Scientists continue to explore the role that chemicals play in weight gain and obesity. According to the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, more than 80,000 chemicals are registered for use in the United States. Some of these chemicals interfere with how the bodys hormones function:
The ones that impact hormones are called endocrine disrupting chemicals, or endocrine disruptors, and are linked to a variety of diseases.
Some endocrine disruptors have been shown to be obesogens, or involved in weight gain, and may be contributing...
