How Much Do You Really Know About Vaccine Safety? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

The video above features a lecture by Del Bigtree,1 an Emmy award-winning producer of "The Doctors" talk show for six years, and one of the producers of the documentary "Vaxxed." I actually attended and saw the talk he gave during the 2017 "Truth About Cancer Live" event in Orlando, Florida, where I was also speaking.

He focuses on vaccine safety and freedom of choice. This presentation was designed to be shared with those who think vaccine safety advocates are foolish and need to "get with the program." This is one of the best presentations I have seen that could have many rational and objective people change their views on vaccines, so feel free to widely share with those who are in favor of vaccines.

"I am a super fan of science," he says. "When we talk about vaccines, and if you question vaccines, you are said to be anti-science. The opposite is actually true and today I'm going to prove to you [that] the science of vaccines has been fraudulent; it's a lie, it does not exist, and I want you to march out and demand that science begin immediately."

The Vaccine Safety Project

The official refrain repeated by most mainstream media is that vaccines have been thoroughly researched and "hundreds" of studies have proven they're safe, and that no link between vaccines and health problems such as autism have ever been found. Unfortunately, this simply isn't true. Importantly, the industry has long shied away from evaluating vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations to determine general health outcomes.

One such study2 was finally published earlier this year, and its findings were less than encouraging. Here, they examined health outcomes following the introduction of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and oral polio vaccine (OPV) in Guinea-Bissau, which took place in the early 1980s. This population offered the rare opportunity to compare vaccinated and unvaccinated children due to the way the vaccines were rolled out. What did they find?

According to the authors, "DTP was associated with fivefold higher mortality than being unvaccinated," and "All currently available evidence suggests that DTP vaccine may kill more children from other causes than it saves from diphtheria, tetanus or pertussis." In other words, the researcher...

How Can You Tell if Eggs Have Expired? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

The date typed on store-bought food containers often refers to either a sell by or expiration date. However, if the food in question happens to be eggs, and you throw them out based on the assumption theyre no good past that date, youre likely pitching perfectly good eggs. With a little experience, you can hone your skills at determining by sight and smell whether or not foods such as meats, vegetables and herbs are still fresh and healthy to eat as opposed to past their prime.

With eggs, though, its a little more challenging. The date on egg cartons is often a tactic food manufacturers use to get you to buy them more often, so knowing how to test your eggs at home to determine their freshness save you quite a bit of money. The Food Product Dating section of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) says state-by-state egg laws may prohibit sell by dates, and adds:

Many eggs reach stores only a few days after the hen lays them. Egg cartons with the USDA grade shield on them must display the pack date (the day that the eggs were washed, graded and placed in the carton). This number is a three-digit code that represents the consecutive day of the year starting with January 1 as 001 and ending with December 31 as 365.  When a sell-by date appears on a carton bearing the USDA grade shield, the code date may not exceed 30 days from the date of pack.1

To clarify, the date on cartons indicates when eggs were laid, not the date you bought them. You might be surprised to find that eggs you may have assumed by carton dates to be expired are more often than not still perfectly good to eat.

Assess Your Eggs With a Float Test

The float test for egg freshness is very simple: Simply place your raw eggs into a bowl of cold water and watch what happens. Heres what the eggs will tell you:

  • When they sink straight to the bottom and lay flat on their sides, they are very fresh and excellent for frying or scrambling, but not so great for hard-boiling.
  • Eggs that stand on one end or tilt to one side on the bottom of the bowl are a few weeks old but still good to eat, and perfect for hard-boiling.
  • Eggs that float are no longer fresh and shouldnt be eaten, either hard-boiled or any other way.

According to Food Hacks: To give you an idea of (how) old an egg actually is, look at the packed by dates on the carton, which are in Julian date form by the sell by dates. Julian dates ran.....

Fire Starters- flint and steel "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

I have a few different flint and steel fire starters. Not all are good in my opinion.

This is my favorite. It sparks almost every time and has the wood handle so I can scrape some wood off to help start a fire plus it has the magnesium to help ignite things.

This is a good flint and steel. Basic and dependable. Sparks easy, cheap no complaints. Fits in a pocket easily. Has the metal chain that you can clip onto the outside of your bag....

Springfield Armory Saint "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

With every major manufacturer now making a AR15, it was only a matter of time before Springfield Armory would jump on the bandwagon.

The Saint is a mid-level priced AR that has a lot of the more expensive ARs features that so many of the armchair warriors demand.

Bought mine today and these are my initial impressions.

1st, the price. Mine was $799 plus tax, which was a total of $856.00
2nd, is the case it came in, I have seen ARs and FN SCARs selling for more than $2000.00 come in a...

Broken by INO in Fortaleza, Brazil "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Greek artist INO was invited to paint in the 4th edition of Festival Concreto  that happened in Fortaleza city, Brazil.

A place that anyone can see very large contradictions, the poverty in the street, people begging for food while you eat at the restaurant, the prostitutes every night on the streets. All these mix together with the luxury, the expensive apartments in huge buildings that look empty, the barbwires on the fences of each condominium yard.

Known for his provocative images and after he was given a wall of a luxury hotel (51m high), INO had the chance to emphasise the phenomenon of prostitution. He painted a picture of a naked thin woman on a position of offering her body with a black splash coming out of her head and named it Broken. Because of the strong sun, INO was also working at night. Every night under the building, there were women selling their body. (photo from the lift attached)

Corey Goode 12-13, 12-14-17 FB Updates Update(s) on Current Events "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Okay, well, Corey has a blog post entitled Update on Current Events, which is the second of the two FB posts Im placing below. So enjoy the highlights, and prepare for The Upcoming Update.

One experience, where Gonzales pulled me up to the Mayan ship where I found myself in the middle of a strange battle between the Mayans and a very human looking reptoid being. I was further shocked when I was pulled into a SSP Alliance meeting at the LOC and saw Sigmund sitting at the conference table with a smirk on his face.

I was briefed on a number of battles that have been going on under the surface of the Earth and its Oceans as well as within its Atmosphere and in Near Earth Orbit.

People have talked about mass arrests for years. What we should really be on the lookout for is Mass Indictments Now steps are being taken by the Alliance to indict many of these pedophiles and sexual predators and Satanists that have been running our country and the west for decades.

The Alliance is attempting to defeat the Cabal both through the legal system that is obviously broken but also via Military Intelligence Operations that have been occurring within the borders of the United States since just prior to the election. These secret grand juries and Military Intel Operatives are working overtime right now. Many state and federal representatives have already been informed of their upcoming indictments.

How Natural Medicine Destroyed in 1910 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Move that Changed the Health and Wellbeing Industry

I am now 68 and over the years I have relied upon alternative medical solutions for almost all my health problems. A change in diet, herbs, vitamins, minerals and lots of exercise ended up being almost all the medicine I ever needed!

In 2010, when I was 61, I cured myself of arthritis with vitamins and minerals alone. I had suffered since I was in my 20s. My doctors said arthritis was not curable, but Western medicine was wrong about arthritis.

After that simple cure, I quit suffering, became skeptical, and started to research the history of medicine in North America. What I discovered is astonishing!

Further futures to boost Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Most of the action this week has been with the altcoins and Bitcoin has been relatively stable. Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple all reached record highs and have hugely expanded their market capacities. Bitcoin has slowly inched up from $16,400 to around $17,600 where it currently trades, things could heat up again over the weekend though as more futures contracts will be launched.

The start of futures trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange has been slow and steady. More significantly it has been hailed as a turning point for Bitcoin and crypto currency giving it more recognition with a little long overdue regulation and transparency. This elevated status will be given a further boost in the coming days as two more players enter the game.

The Chicago Mercantile Exchange, a much larger exchange than the CBOE, will launch its Bitcoin futures on Sunday. It is expected to attract higher volumes and a higher dollar value of trading so Bitcoin prices could well hit $20,000. The third exchange to offer Bitcoin trading is TD Ameritrade which controls the largest futures operation of any online brokerage firm. The company recently announced that it will allow Bitcoin futures contracts on its platform on Monday. This will result in a lot more liquidity and a lot more participation from retail traders.

Clients must have a minimum balance of $25,000, in order to participate in the futures according to the brokerage. The margin requirement will also be 1.5 times what the CBOE requires. JB Mackenzie, managing director for futures trading at TD Ameritrade, told Bloomberg:

Right now we are taking the same approach we did with the Cboe product, to wait and see how it goes. We want to watch that market open and become an orderly marketplace and see who the participants are in that marketplace. This is the same process we use with any new product. We want to see how the market reacts.

Volume on the CBOE contracts that have been trading over the past week has been a little on the low side according to a CNBC report. Around $60 million in notional value has traded each day on average. Compare that to the last 24 hours in the Bitcoin market which stands a volume of $12 billion according to Coinmarketcap.com.

The majority of crypto currency traders are based in Asia, outside the US where futures contracts are not available and the digital currency is traded directly. Only when the heavyweights such as JP Morgan Chase and Morgan Stanley allow their clients to trade crypto currency will things really heat up for institutional investors. Even so, there is still likely to be more action on the Bitcoin charts this weekend, get ready for the ride!

Your Favorite Song is Rewiring Your Brain: Heres How Music Is Changing You "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Christina Sarich; The Mind Unleashed

Listening to music lifts our spirits. It truly is a Universal language, as well as a spiritual one. We can sense this intuitively without knowing the science behind it. We play our favorite song on our smart phones, and a smile ignites across our faces. But, even with its obvious sway over us, we may not realize that music is reorganizing our brains just like an adaptogenic herb, or a session of meditation.

Adaptogens are herbs that can reorganize cells in our body they adapt to our greatest needs be they stress reduction or the boosting of our immune system. It seems music can do the same thing.

Music was likely invented for human enjoyment in Paleolithic days, but the music of the Universe, what the Pythagoreans called the music of the spheres is likely as old as the Universe itself. NASA has even recorded the song of the Earth, and each planet is said to have its own musical vibration.


Similarly, the ancient Greek initiates understood the therapeutic benefits of music, which were likely gleaned from the Egyptians. Early Chinese, Tibetan, Hindu, Persians, and other cultures all knew scales which were meant to induce certain hypnagogic states but we really have no idea how far back the use of music goes into human history. Even Neanderthals could sing or chant. Undoubtedly music has been an essential evolutionary tool but how exactly is it rewiring your brain?

In recent research, scientists used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI technology) to watch blood flow in the brain as people listened to their favorite tune.

McCain eyes exit from Senate amid 'stress' from growing Trump dossier scandal

John McCain is reportedly preparing to pull back from the U.S. Senate, according to Beltway insiders who say new demands to answer for his role in either underwriting or promoting the Trump phony dossier are stressing the Arizona senator's fragile health.

It is not clear whether McCain plans to outright retire from the Senate or simply focus on his Stage IV cancer treatments away from Washington, D.C. but many GOP insiders believe McCain's last days in the Senate are close.

Likely, McCain will not return after the Christmas break, many folks have privately confided.

McCain has been away for the Senate all week, missing votes and debate about a number of topics including tax cuts.

This is not the fist time McCain has sought medical treatment after his role in recent anti-Trump scandals have heated up.

It is hard to tell if McCain's health is genuinely declining or not because he has played that card often to slip and slide out of answering questions for his role in Fusion GPS' bogus Trump dossier:

Weapons Went From The CIA To ISIS In Less Than Two Months, New Study Reveals "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Conspiracy Theorists Were Right: Corporate Media Finally Forced to Admit America Armed ISIS


A new investigation has concluded that 97 percent of the weapons used by the Islamic State were supplied illegally by the U.S. and Saudi Arabia.

While the mainstream media opted to protect the United States government by treating anyone who dared to question the governments role in the rise of ISIS as crazy conspiracy theorists, a new report is forcing the MSM to admit that those conspiracies were true all along.

Now, mainstream media outlets such as Reuters and USA Today are suddenly reporting that the United States and its close ally, Saudi Arabia, were instrumental in supplying weapons and ammunition to ISIS. Both reports cite an investigation conducted by Conflict Armament Research (CAR), which looked at 40,000 items recovered from Islamic State militants between July 2014 and November 2017.

https://www.globalresearch.ca

The nonpartisan First Amendment advocacy group Free Press vowed to take the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to court Thursday after the Republican-controlled panel moved to gut net neutrality protections that prohibit internet service providers (ISPs) from charging for and discriminating against content, in a 3-2 vote along party lines.

The ACLU released a statement calling the misguided decision a radical departure that risks erosion of the biggest free speech platform the world has ever known.

Todays loss means that telecommunications companies will start intruding more on how people use the internet. Internet service providers will become much more aggressive in their efforts to make money off their role as online gatekeepers, said Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst for the group.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) also denounced the ruling:
Once again, the Trump administration has sided with big money and against the interests of the American people. The FCCs vote to end net neutrality is an egregious attack on our democracy. With this decision the internet and its free exchange of information as we have come to know it will cease to exist. The end of net neutrality protections means that the internet will be for sale to the highest bidder, instead of everyone having the same access regardless of whether they are rich or poor, a big corporation or small business, a multimedia conglomerate or a small online publication. At a time when our democratic institutions are already in peril, we must do everything we can to stop this decision from taking effect.
Free Press and their many allies rallied outside the FCC headquarters in Washington, D.C. as the five commissioners prepared to vote on FCC chair Ajit Pais proposal to roll back the Obama-era protections. The protest represented the...

Julian Assange Just Warned of a Deep State Coup Meant to Install Mike Pence as President "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The founder of WikiLeaks is warning the public about a Deep State plot to overthrow Trump, and install Mike Pence as President of the United States.


By Jay Syrmopoulos
The Free Thought Project




Washington, D.C. In a tweet this morning, WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange, made a prescient observation that the ongoing deep state coup against President Trump is an operation by establishment forces to unseat Trump and replace him with Vice President Mike Pence. Assange noted that Trumps political capital has been openly looted for months now by GOP, CIA, Netanyahu, Goldman Sachs, etc.

Essentially, Assange is saying is that the aforementioned stakeholders who want to see Trump gone have played a long-game, whereby they have worked to extract as many unpopular positions as possible (e.g tax cuts for the super rich), push the resulting political corpse to Mueller & install Mike Pence.





This, of course, was done as means of severing Trump from his political base, which largely opposes CIA interventionism, Zionism, and globalist banking cartels. The idea behind it being that when Mueller moves to recommend impeachment, Trump will have strayed so far from the positions that got him elected that there will be a minimal public outcry in his defense.

This follows chatter earlier this year that some saw Mike Pence as the Deep States insurance policy.

In fact, Wikileaks Assange, tweeted back in March, that there was a plan afoot by Hillary Clinton and her loyalists within the Intelligence Community to force a Pence takeover.

How 'Elite' Bloodlines and Secret Societies Are Controlling the World "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

In the West, weve all been spoon fed the idea that we are free citizens of sovereign countries, where our democratically elected governments rule according to the peoples wishes.

If thats not achieved, its usually explained as being due to misfortunes such as crises, security threats or wars, or the stupidity of our governments. The few people that doubt these explanations, or even suspect hidden hands behind the occurrences of our time or the official narrative of our history, are easily dismissed as conspiracy nuts.

Our Rulers in Ancient Times

For sure, there were no hidden hands when humanity was in its pre-history, predating our real history as seen by most. For about 200,000 years our ancestors lived in small nomadic communities, sharing the food obtained by hunting and gathering.

New Titans owners lose money on acquisition photo "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NEW TITANS OWNERS ARE URGENTLY REVIEWING THEIR RECEIPTS THIS MORNING

NEW TITANS OWNERS ARE URGENTLY REVIEWING THEIR RECEIPTS THIS MORNING

The consortium responsible for purchasing the ailing Gold Coast Titans franchise have been forced to admit that making the announcement has already cost them millions of dollars.

The group claim they have haemorrhaged money on merchandise and press releases used to court the media, citing supplier issues as the main culprit.

Looking back on it we should never have hired Jarryd Hayne to take the publicity photo for us, Owner Darry Kelly said.

We thought it might be good PR to have Jarryd take the shot but the bloke charged exorbitant fees and really bled us dry.

Another major drain on the purse of the new owners was poorly priced merchandise designed to drum up support in the media.

We thought we were using a reputable wholesaler for the merch but it turns out G Bird Pty Ltd was priced well above the market value, a forlorn Rebecca Frizelle conceded this morning.

If we had done more research and known that the company was simply Greg Bird selling off all of his old clothes at a premium we wouldve made a wiser decision.

You live and you learn I suppose.

The consortium has called an urgent board room meeting to discuss the poor investment choices and double check what their cooling off period is on the club purchase.

THE FAULT REPORT IS A SATIRICAL WEBSITE AND ITS CONTENTS ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY. ANY RESEMBLANCE TO REALITY IS PURELY (AND LAMENTABLY) COINCIDENTAL.

Time to Repeal the Childhood Vaccine Injury Act Because it Only Protects Pharmaceutical Companies "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Statue of Lady Justice in Downtown Frankfurt Germany

Who Does the Childhood Vaccine Injury Act Protect?

Hint: It isnt the kids

by Deirdre Imus
WorldMercuryProject.org

The laws of a country are, generally, designed to protect its citizens. How this ideal is interpreted is a topic of debate in various circles, but its goal is lofty, if not quite perfect.

Of specific necessity are laws aimed at protecting children, including child abuse, welfare, and labor laws. Of zero necessity, in my view, is the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), which sounds like it has the best interests of this nations young citizens in mind, but actually serves a much different purpose.

Congress passed the NCVIA in 1986, and President Ronald Reagan signed it into law soon after.

Taken at face value, the law has some admirable provisions: it established improved communication regarding vaccines across all Department of Health and Human Service agencies; required health care providers who administer vaccines to provide a vaccine information statement to the person getting the vaccine or his or her guardian; and established a committee from the Institute of Medicine to review the literature on vaccine reactions.

Dig a little deeper, however, and the NCVIA does less to protect patients than it does drug companies making vaccines. When Reagan signed the NCVIA, he also created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), which allows anyonechildren and adultswho have suffered an injury (or worse) following a vaccination to file a claim.

It seems that we are on the threshold of the long awaited currency RV event along with the other changes associated with the return of our beloved Republic. I thought a few words from the sage position of a 32 year career investment adviser might come in handy.

As I have told my clients over the years early and easy money (lottery, inheritance and out-sized gifts) can serve up the three Ds of flawed financial planning:

* Death
* Divorce
* Drugs

Giving a large pile of cash to anyone carries blessings and risks however in the hands of a young-in it is a prescription for disaster like a loaded gun in untrained hands.


The other risk is keeping your money safe from hustlers, hucksters and money addicted brokers promising you expertise for your holdings while you plan your eleemosynary(charitable) projects.

Rules of the road in dealing with new brokers, lawyers and accountants:

Due your due diligence and get referrals. Just because a big institution like the banks and large legal and accounting firms' name is behind them that does not mean they know their trade. Ask...

Ancient Genetic Damage

 
Every once in a while, I do healing work on a client who carries a genetic pattern that is not only important for that person to transcend, but is also a significant pattern for humanity as a whole.  It very much depends on the issue that the client would like to work with, their readiness to address that tissue, and what shows up in the session.  Of course, their Higher Self is ultimately in charge of what shows up to be worked with! 
This past week I worked with a client I will call Jane, and 2 very significant genetic patterns showed up to be transcended.  Everyone needs an issue to work with, and in this case, my clients general issue was her difficulties in feeling very stuck in life, going nowhere, lost and giving up very easily, thus not completing tasks and projects.  There was a lack of passion in life, and also a sense that Janes inner and spiritual connections were not as they should be.
Without going into the specifics of the process used, these are the genetic patterns that were cleared for my client.  Keep in mind that it was also determined that these patterns are common for humanity as a whole.  The first genetica...

Mike Quinsey (Channeling) Update - December 15, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

MIKE QUINSEY

http://www.tomevans.co/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/MikeQuinsey.jpgIt seems that time is still speeding up as the final days of 2017 draw near. As predicted the seasons are gradually running into each other, but in the long run things will level out and certain to be to your liking. Meantime things can get challenging and the animal world is being affected, but it is in no real danger as they can move to new areas. Their food supplies are a different matter, and where they are being depleted it can force them to find alternative sources. Humankind is able to cope with change, but on top of differences between nations that have yet to be settled, there are problems that will take some time to bring to a conclusion. Understand that in the main you are responsible for the conditions that have led to some of the difficulties. Man does not realise the extent to which his actions affect everything. Anything that is creating and is of the negative energies, invariably creates fear and it is liable to pull the higher vibrations down.

However, slowly but surely those who generate so much negativity are losing their power as more and more people are turning to the Light. In one sense the battle has already been won and the dark Ones will continue to become isolated. However, it takes time to re-establish a society based upon love, but it is beginning to happen all over the world, and the Light is quickly growing. The idea of starting wars for whatever reason is beginning to be unacceptable, and Humanity will have much to say in opposition to it, notwithstanding the fact that the higher powers have stated that they will not allow another nuclear war on Earth. Also those who seek world peace are becoming more than a minority and their powerful voice is being heard. As a result the diehard warmongers and the Arms Industry are worried as their lucrative business and profit from war is under threat. Their days are numbered as any potential war will be prevented, and greater powers than ours will ensure it is so.


For whatever reason you might celebrate at the end of this month, it is also the end of the year and the coming of the New Year that is celebrated worldwide. Humanity is uplifted, and many religions are part of the solemn services in anticipation and remembrance of the occasion. The Light that is given out has a great healing effect and in this New Age it will anchor itself upon Earth. The vibrations are also lifted up by those of you who have a tradition of making New Year resolutions, and there is much to be gained as a result of the world ce.....

Bitcoin Bubble: Is Bitcoin Going To $1 Million Or Is it Going To Zero? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Bubble: Is Bitcoin Going To $1 Million Or Is it Going To Zero? | Bitcoin-Reflection-Public-Domain | Economy & Business Special Interests

The price of Bitcoin continues to rise at an exponential rate, and the financial world is in a complete state of shock.  Just yesterday, I marveled that the price of Bitcoin had surged past the $13,000 mark for the first time ever, but then on Thursday it actually was selling for more than $19,000 at one point.  As I write this, Bitcoin is sitting at $16,877.42, but a few hours from now it could be a couple of thousand dollars higher or lower than that.  Those that got in early on the Bitcoin revolution have made extraordinary amounts of money, and many believe that this is just the beginning.

Of course many of the most respected names in the financial world were convinced that this would never happen.  For example, back in 2014 Warren Buffett encouraged investors to stay away because he believed that Bitcoin was a mirage.  And not too long ago JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon said that if youre stupid enough to buy it, youll pay the price for it one day.

But for now, it is Bitcoin investors that are having the last laugh.  If you would have gotten into Bitcoin back at the beginning of this year, your investment would be worth 16 times as much today.  The following comes from CNN

Bitcoin cracked $1,000 on the first day of 2017. By this week, it was up to $12,000, and then it really took off: The price topped $16,000 on som...

Cryptocurrency Chaos: Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum All Keep Surging To New Record Highs With No End In Sight "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


(Michael Snyder) The cryptocurrency revolution is the biggest story in the financial world right now. In recent days I have spent a lot of time writing about Bitcoin, but the truth is that all of the major cryptocurrencies have been on an unprecedented run lately. In fact, some of them have been rising much faster in price than Bitcoin has. So even though Bitcoin is now worth almost 18 times as much as it was at the beginning of 2017, that actually pales in comparison to how fast Litecoin has been rising. Of course not all of these cryptocurrencies will eventually succeed. There are about 1000 different cryptocurrencies in existence at the moment, and most of them will inevitably fail. But for now virtually every cryptocurrency is soaring, and the total market cap for all cryptocurrencies combined is rapidly approaching half a trillion dollars.

Food and Love In the Time of Corporatocracy "IndyWatch Feed Health"

corporatocracy

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Trapped in a food desert, deep in the South, theres a depressing burger joint pretending to be a a retro Drive-In blast from the past. It is in fact a bleak vision into a corporate Idiocracy. A corporatocracy for the masses.

In this monochromatic human corral, the underpaid workers miserably slop cold burgers and burnt fries onto cafeteria trays as they shout 958! 959! into the P.A. system. Bright lights hang down over uneven tables and quick tempoed music goes duh! duh! duh! as a repellent for migraine sufferers. But really its an unconscious command to hurry! hurry! hurry! Shove that dry burger down the gullet even though it was a frozen coin tossed on an oil-slicked grill just seconds ago.

A woman brings her last, shriveled french fries to her mouth as they bleed grease down her fingers where she pinched them. She barely wipes them off before smearing them on her iPad like a preschooler fingerpainting.

Eight TVs flash and blare with sexual overtones to sell more toxic junk like soda, cologne and more convenience food to sleepy eyed patrons, mouths agape before they sway painfully back to their cars. When they drive home theyll be besieged by ugly billboards and obnoxious radio a...

Row over smell the sausage police searches "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

A dispute has broken out over advice given to police in England and Wales telling them not to stop and search people because they smell of sausages.  The advice says officers should look at other factors like behavior, concealed sausage-shapes in the trouser-region or whether the suspect is in possession of gravy granules.

But some officers, including some big ones that looked quite hungry, said they disagreed.   The College of Policing said it plans to review the evidence with some mash.

Currently, police officers can use stop-and-search powers if they have reasonable grounds to suspect someone is carrying items such as drugs, weapons or delicious processed offal wrapped tightly in anus piping.

Last year, they were given new guidance by that the smell of sausages on its own would not normally justify stopping and searching someone or their vehicle.  It would also need to be a while since breakfast, quite a wait until lunch, or if they had just seized some mustard and bread rolls.

Chief Inspector David Porcini said that while his officers were adept at sniffing out pork products, it was sometimes culturally insensitive to search on this basis:  In my experience, its very unlikely that young Muslims will be carrying bangers, for instance.  Mores the pity, these finger rolls are on their sell-by date.

Home Birth Aotearoa Photography Competition 2017/2018 "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

One of our struggles, as a voluntary organisation working in a charitable space, is securing high quality, home birth specific photos with an Aotearoa flavour. Whenever we explore stock imagery options, there are a plethora of images that reduce women in pregnancy to headless torsos dressed in clinical white, with birth being avoided altogether or portrayed in a medical context only.

Panax notoginseng extract had protective effects against influenza A virus infection. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Immunol. 2017 ;8:1542. Epub 2017 Nov 13. PMID: 29181006 Abstract Title:  Protective Effect of Panax notoginseng Root Water Extract against Influenza A Virus Infection by Enhancing Antiviral Interferon-Mediated Immune Responses and Natural Killer Cell Activity. Abstract:  Influenza is an acute respiratory illness caused by the influenza A virus, which causes economic losses and social disruption mainly by increasing hospitalization and mortality rates among the elderly and people with chronic diseases. Influenza vaccines are the most effective means of preventing seasonal influenza, but can be completely ineffective if there is an antigenic mismatch between the seasonal vaccine virus and the virus circulating in the community. In addition, influenza viruses resistant to antiviral drugs are emerging worldwide. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop new vaccines and antiviral drugs against these viruses. In this study, we conducted in vitro and in vivo analyses of the antiviral effect of Panax notoginseng root (PNR), which is used as an herbal medicine and nutritional supplement in Korea and China. We confirmed that PNR significantly prevented influenza virus infection in a concentration-dependent manner in mouse macrophages. In addition, PNR pretreatment inhibited viral protein (PB1, PB2, HA, NA, M1, PA, M2, and NP) and viral mRNA (NS1, HA, PB2, PA, NP, M1, and M2) expression. PNR pretreatment also increased the secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines [tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin 6] and interferon (IFN)-beta and the phosphorylation of type-I IFN-related proteins (TANK-binding kinase1, STAT1, and IRF3) in vitro. In mice exposed to the influenza A H1N1 virus, PNR treatment decreased mortality by 90% and prevented weight loss (by approximately 10%) compared with the findings in untreated animals. In addition, splenocytes from PNR-administered mice displayed significantly enhanced natural killer (NK) cell activity against YAC-1 cells. Taking these findings together, PNR stimulates an antiviral response in murine macrophages and mice that protects against viral infection, which may be attributable to its ability to stimulate NK cell activity. Further investigations are needed to reveal the molecular mechanisms underlying the protective effects of PNR and its components against influenza virus A infection.

That Crypto Trader Youre Paying for Advice Isnt as Smart as You Think

Professional cryptocurrency traders are a clever bunch. They must be, with all their talk of MAs, fibs, and ichis. Mere mortals could never hope to acquire their expert charting knowledge or ability to glean breakouts from glancing at a graph. Thankfully, theres a way for beginners to trade like a pro without needing to spend five years at forex school: by paying for it. Joining a paid trading group seems like an easy way to fast track your gains, but be careful those paid signals could be costing you more than you think.

7 Things You Value As An Old Soul "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

As an old soul, you stand out more than others. You just dont seem to fit in and there is nothing wrong with that.

That being said, some people just cant quite pinpoint what it is that makes them different. If you believe you may be an old soul but arent quite sure this should help you. All old souls value the following things, and if you value these things you are an old soul.

An old soul is a person whose soul has already lived many lives. You have already been here time and time again and gained great wisdom. You are quite intelligent and often act wise beyond your years.

7 Things Old Souls Value:

1. Growth

You know growth is important for all of us. No matter how old we are we never stop growing. This is something we all have to accept. Growth is just a part of life and a big part at that.

2. Freedom

You like to be able to do the things you want to do. You have been through this life more than enough times to know that freedom is important. Without freedom we are nothing.

3. Alone Time

You need time to reflect and unwind. As an old soul, you are much more introverted than others. You have already lived through the stages most people are stuck in. Three or more lives ago you may have been a party animal, who knows.

4. Knowledge

You are constantly learning new things and figuring out answers to questions you never thought would be answered. Knowledge is the key to everything. Without knowledge where would we all be?

5. Truth

You do not lie and do not let those who lie remain in your life. You are honest and truthful and expect nothing less from others. Telling the truth is not hard and you are more than aware of that.

6. The Bigger Picture

You are always working towards something else. The bigger picture never leaves your mind. You have a plan and know your purpose.

7. Family

You are quite family oriented because you have seen what it is like to be away from those who care. You would do anything for those closest to you and they know that. Family is something you hold to a very high standard.

Old souls are some of the most amazing people in the world, if you happen to be one remember that you should always be true to yourself. Things are falling into place and you are going to be the only one still standing tall in the end....

5 Ways You Can Do Shadow Work to Face Your Shadow Self and Overcome Your Demons "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

There is no light without shadow and no psychic wholeness without imperfection  Carl Jung

Shadow work is a process that entails exploring your darker parts and using them to overcome things that need to be overcome. Our shadow self is a concept that was created by Carl Jung and he believed it is made up of all of the things we dont want to think or feel, things we want to keep locked away. We have to be aware of all aspects of ourselves.

When it comes to embracing the shadow aspects of ourselves we need to be aware that in doing so we are giving them power. You must be prepared before attempting as you may not like the things you find. You must be disciplined when associating with your shadow aspects.

5 Ways to Do Shadow Work:

1. Identify Your Shadow

This is something that will prove to be a bit tricky. Our shadow is such a hidden part of our psyche that it is sometimes difficult to notice. Become aware of ongoing patterns and experiences. You can highlight the shadow through your emotions as they repeat.

2. Start a Journal

Writing things down in a journal is a powerful way to really get emotions out you didnt realize you had. Empty your mind and let those thoughts out on paper. Write whatever comes to mind and if you need some inspiration ask yourself some questions like what am I feeling? or why am I doing this?.

3. Nurture Your Inner Child

Dig deep and figure out what brought you to where you are. Did you experience any childhood traumas? Really dive in and work through those unhealed wounds of your past. You are much stronger than your weaknesses.

4. Embrace Your Emotions

Dont be afraid to feel. Most of the things we do are driven by a force we cannot see. Be aware of everything you are feeling. Dont put your body on autopilot.

Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate. Carl Jung

5. Pay Attention to When and Why You Get Upset

When you are upset the Universe is sending you something to work on. You really need to question yourself at these moments and get to the root of things. Ask yourself why this upsets you and what it means to you. Do this until you cannot handle anymore. You will be s...

Worlds Oldest Living Man Reveals His Secret to Longevity "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The worlds oldest man has recently celebrated another birthday in Spain. His name is Francisco Nunez Olivera and he is now 113 years old.

Olivera was born on December 13th, 1904 and grew up in Bienvenida in Extremadura, western Spain. He credits drinking one glass of red wine every day and homegrown veggies to his longevity. Olivera claims to have two siblings aged 97 and 93. His daughter is his current caretaker and is quite proud of him.

This man is one of only 30 people who are over the age of 90 that live in the village of only 2,300 inhabitants. He is actually known now as his villages Marchena because of his similarity to the famous Spanish singer who performed in the town not long after he arrived home from military service many moons ago. Olivera fought in the Rif War during the 1920s.

Despite being so old this marvelous man claims to have no aches, pains, or illnesses. He is in great health and even has perfect blood pressure. He is so well known where he lives that the local mayor even spoke about him to the paper.

Local Mayor Antonio Carmona told El Mundo as follows:

Hes a living example of the quality of life in the municipality, but also of the pollution-free skies and countryside and stress-free work of the traditional way of life.

While Olivera may look pretty old he does not feel old. He gets letters every year from people across the globe and he is overwhelmed with the love that all of these strangers are showing him. He really does seem to be doing just fine and hopes to live for at the very least several more years. He has become quite an example of life.

Could you imagine living for so long? I for one do not know if I could handle it, seeing all of my loved ones pass on. That being said, it does appear Olivera is coping just fine. He is surrounded even now by people who care. What do you think about this? Could the secret to longevity be living in a stress-free village, eating homegrown veggie, and drinking a glass of wine each day? It sure does sound like heaven to me!

Curcumin may be a novel treatment for neuroinflammation-mediated neurodegenerative disorders. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2018 Jan ;41(1):521-530. Epub 2017 Oct 27. PMID: 29115589 Abstract Title:  Anti-neuroinflammatory effect of curcumin on Pam3CSK4-stimulated microglial cells. Abstract:  Curcumin is the main curcuminoid present in Curcuma longa and it has been previously reported to exhibit a wide range of pharmacological activities. In the present study, the inhibitory effects of curcumin on the inflammatory mediators released by Pam3CSK4-stimulated BV-2 microglial cells were investigated. The production of pro-inflammatory mediators and cytokines, including tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), were measured by enzymelinked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The expression of inflammatory genes, including inducible nitric oxide synthase and cyclooxygenase-2, were further investigated using reversetranscription-quantitative polymerase chain reaction. The effects of curcumin on heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1), nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 2 (Nrf2), mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) and nuclear factor-B (NF-B) signaling pathways were analyzed by western blotting. The results revealed that curcumin dose-dependently inhibited Pam3CSK4-induced nitric oxide, PGE2, and TNF- secretion. Curcumin suppressed the secretion of inflammatory mediators through an increase in the expression of HO-1. Curcumin induced HO-1 transcription and translation through the Nrf2/antioxidant response element signaling pathway. Inhibitory experiments revealed that HO-1 was required for the anti-inflammatory effects of curcumin. Further mechanistic studies demonstrated that curcumin inhibited neuroinflammation by suppressing NF-B and MAPK signaling pathways in Pam3CSK4-activated microglial cells. The results of the present study suggest that curcumin may be a novel treatment for neuroinflammation-mediated neurodegenerative disorders.

A Performance Digs Into the Family History on a Found 1950s Wire Recorder "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Alison S. M. Kobayashi in <em>Say Something Bunny!</em> (photo by Henry Chan)Alison S. M. Kobayashi in Say Something Bunny! (photo by Henry Chan)

In 2011, a friend gave Alison S. M. Kobayashi a wire recorder, a now obsolete form of audio technology that used steel wire for magnetic recordings. Included with the estate-sale find were two unlabeled spools, each dense with unidentified voices. As Kobayashi listened, characters and narratives emerged from the distortion, and, based on offhand comments about culture and holidays, she gradually traced these unmoored ghosts back to the early 1950s. They were the Newburges, a Jewish American family who lived on Long Island, and the older son David had recorded two of their gatherings. The decades-old sound became the basis for Say Something Bunny!, a performance thats part one-woman show and part live documentary, as the audience joins in an excavation of this sonic artifact.

For the past decade, Ive been working with found material, Kobayashi told Hyperallergic. Its often somewhat banal or something ordinary, or something that we all have. One of my first projects was collecting answering-machine tapes that people donated to thrift stores.

Beijings Campaign to Level Illegal Structures Displaces Migrants, Threatens Artists "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

After a fire killed 19 people in an overcrowded Beijing apartment building on November 18, the municipal government launched a 40-day campaign to crack down on illegal structures and reduce the citys low-end population (). Tens of thousands of tenants, mostly migrant laborers and small business owners, are being forced to relocate on very short notice, usually no more than a day or two, and sometimes as little as 15 minutes. A total of 430 million square feet of illegal dwellings are to be bulldozed by the end of this year, according to the Financial Times, making it the biggest citywide demolition effort since the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Although no immediate statistics are available, the impact of this enormous mass eviction of many tenants of the low-end population whose households are registered in provinces and therefore not entitled to public services in Beijing is felt instantaneously, as food delivery and courier services are now paralyzed.

Among the structures deemed illegal and unsafe are many artists newly built studios on the northeast peripheries of the city, where the forever-expanding urban agglomerate meets shrinking rural land. In this liminal space of informal development, even the well-off artists, many of whom live in upscale suburbs, continue to navigate the citys unofficial economy in pursuit of large and flexible studio spaces with cheaper rent. They are members of Beijings enormous informal population, which includes all tenants whose status and/or employment situations are not officially recognized, regardless of their income levels. The informal developments where t...

This applies to muzzle-loader gun owners too. Muzzle-loading guns as far as the government is concerned are the same as breach-loading guns, all are bundled in together. You can own an antique flintlock but are not allowed to shoot it. The government does not class ALL flintlocks as being the same! You can not own a replica flintlock pistol unless you have an "H" class license, & even then the only place you can shoot it is on a club range with club membership.

Curcumin could provide a novel strategy to combat antibiotic resistance and virulence of M. abscessus. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Phytother Res. 2017 Nov 29. Epub 2017 Nov 29. PMID: 29193368 Abstract Title:  Curcumin, an antibiotic resistance breaker against a multiresistant clinical isolate of Mycobacterium abscessus. Abstract:  Curcumin, a phenolic compound extracted from Curcuma longa, exerts multiple pharmacological effects, including an antimicrobial action. Mycobacterium abscessus, an environmental, nontuberculous, rapidly growing mycobacterium, is an emerging human pathogen causing serious lung infections and one of the most difficult to treat, due to its multidrug resistance and biofilm-forming ability. We wanted to evaluate the antimicrobial and antivirulence activity of curcumin and its ability to synergize with antibiotics against a clinical M. abscessus strain (29904), isolated from the bronchoaspirate of a 66-year-old woman admitted to hospital for suspected tuberculosis. Curcumin [minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) = 128 mg/L] was synergic (fractional inhibitory concentration index 0.5) with amikacin, clarithromycin, ciprofloxacin, and linezolid, to which strain 29904 showed resistance/intermediate susceptibility. Curcumin at 1/8  MIC significantly reduced motility, whereas at 4  MIC, it completely inhibited 4- and 8-day mature biofilms. Synergistic combinations of curcumin and amikacin induced a general reduction in microbial aggregates and substantial loss in cell viability. Disruption of 4- and 8-day biofilms was the main effect detected when curcumin was the predominant compound. The present findings support previous evidence that curcumin is a potential antibiotic resistance breaker. Curcumin, either alone or combined with antibiotics, could provide a novel strategy to combat antibiotic resistance and virulence of M. abscessus.

The Politics of Representing Landscapes "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Regina Jos Galindo, Desierto (2015) (courtesy of the artist, photo by Rodrigo Maulen)

RENO, Nev. During a 2015 performance in Santiago, Chile, Guatemalan artist Regina Jos Galindo constructed an artificial desert landscape in a gallery with an enormous dune made from sawdust. For two hours, Galindo was entombed in the dune with only her head exposed. The sawdust referenced Chiles lucrative timber industry and its centuries-old impact on Mapuche people and dismemberment of Patagonias forests. This legacy of colonial encounters is the subject of Unsettled, an exhibition at the Nevada Museum of Art, in Reno, that explores how dozens of artists have interpreted the dramatic landscapes of the western edge of the American continents.

The museum has a relatively new curatorial focus called the Greater West, a region they define as the eastern Pacific Rim, Australia, New Zealand, and the island of New Guinea. While the museum regularly exhibits work by Aboriginal Australian artists and from the western US, this is the first exhibition to explore the Greater West in a broad sense.

The museum makes a case for the Greater West in the exhibition catalogue, citing plate tectonics, the fact that the region was populated by humans later than elsewhere, an abundance of natural resources, and a colonial presence in recent history. Given that some of these are broad parameters shared across many regions, the reasons for excluding Southeast and East Asia are unclear. And because Unsettled focuses on the Americas and not nearly as much on Oceania, the exhibition does not have the opportunity to flesh out the concept that underpins it. While there are works that engage with the western Pacific Bruce Connors film CROSSROADS (1976) about nuclear testing at Bikini Atoll and Bruno Fazzolaris perfume inspired by sandalwood and tea trade in the South Pacific there are no artists included who are actually from there.

C. longa and curcumin might decrease the risk of cancer and other malignant diseases in the reproductive system. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Endocr Regul. 2017 Oct 26 ;51(4):220-228. PMID: 29232190 Abstract Title:  The effects of Curcuma longa and curcumin on reproductive systems. Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: Curcuma longa (C. longa) was used in some countries such as China and India for various medicinal purposes. Curcumin, the active component of C. longa, is commonly used as a coloring agent in foods, drugs, and cosmetics. C. longa and curcumin have been known to act as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-mutagen, and anti-carcinogenic agents. Th e attempt of the present review was to give an effort on a detailed literature survey concentrated on the protective effects of C. longa and curcumin on the reproductive organs activity.METHODS: The databases such as, PubMed, Web of Science, Google Scholar, Scopus, and Iran- Medex, were considered. The search terms were"testis"or"ovary"and"Curcuma longa","curcumin","antioxidant effect","anti-inflammatory effect"and"anti-cancer effect".RESULTS: C. longa and curcumin inhibited the production of the tumor necrosis factor- (TNF-) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and increased the caspases (3, 8 and 9) activities in HL-60 prostate cancer. Furthermore, C. longa and curcumin suppressed the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), phosphorylated signal transducers and activators of the transcription 3 (STAT) and matrixmetalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) in ovarian cancer cell line.CONCLUSION: C. longa and curcumin might decrease the risk of cancer and other malignant diseases in the reproductive system. C. longa and curcumin have a protective effect on the reproductive organs activity such as, anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic, and antioxidant effects in normal cells but showed pro-apoptotic effects in the malignant cells. Therefore, different effects of C. longa and curcumin are dependent on the doses and the type of cells used in various models studied.

That being said, remember not everything that is symbolic comes in the form of a drawing or pattern, animals, and even colors can be symbolic.

18 Sacred Hindu Symbols and What They Mean:

1. Tripundra

This consists of three horizontal lines on the forehead or other body parts. It is a symbol of a rite of passage and is also used in some daily practices. To those who apply it, it is a reminder of the spiritual aims of life and that all material things will someday become ash.

2. Vata

donaomanoff/pixabay

 

This is also known as a banyan tree. It represents evolving from many roots and branching out to spread shade. Lord Shiva is said to sit beneath this tree as a silent monk.

3. Veena

This is a musical instrument. It is a symbol of learning and art. It is very important, you will often see the Hindu Goddess of Knowledge playing this when depicted in images and sculptures.

4. Swastika

Before Hitler, the swastika was not seen as a symbol of evil. The word swastika itself actually means well-being in Sanskrit. It was used by Hindus, Buddhists, and more for quite some time.

5. Saffron

Saffron is the color you will see most often. It represents many forms of Hinduism. It is the color of fire and reflects the supreme being.

6. Ganesha

I Tested 10+ Photoshop Alternatives to See How They Stack Up "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

To Adobe or not to Adobe. That is the question many photographers are asking with the spate of new image processing programs vying to kill Photoshop. I tested more than ten contenders as alternatives to Adobes image processing software, evaluating them for the specialized task of editing demanding nightscape images taken under the Milky Way, both for single still images and for time-lapses of the moving sky.

If you are hoping theres a clear winner in the battle against Adobe, one software suite I can say does it all and for less cost and commitment, there isnt one. Sorry!

However, a number of contenders offer excellent features and might replace at least one member of Adobes image processing suite.

For example, only four of these programs can truly serve as a layer-based editing program replacing Photoshop.

The others are better described as Adobe Lightroom competitors programs that can catalog image libraries and develop raw image files, with some offering adjustment layers for correcting color, contrast, etc. But layering of images to stack, composite, and mask them is beyond their ability.

For processing time-lapse sequences, however, we dont need, nor can we use, the ability to layer and mask several images into one composite. What we need for time-lapses is to:

  • Develop a single key raw file, then
  • Copy its settings to the hundreds of other raw files in the time-lapse set, then
  • Export that folder of raw images to intermediate JPGs for assembly into a movie.

Even so, not all these contenders are up to the task.

The Competitors

Here are the image processing programs I looked at. Costs are in U.S. dollars. Most have free trial copies available.

Chlorogenic acid supplementation may be favourable to avoid aluminium induced hematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity for humans. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Chem Biol Interact. 2017 Aug 1 ;273:125-132. Epub 2017 Jun 13. PMID: 28623112 Abstract Title:  Protective and prophylactic effects of chlorogenic acid on aluminum-induced acute hepatotoxicity and hematotoxicity in mice. Abstract:  The possible health impact of the exposures to Al from environment would be inevitable for humans. Using chelating agents and natural antioxidants against Al-induced biotoxicity become a natural and modern way to prevent the adverse effects of Al in people. This study was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of chlorogenic acid (CGA, 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid) in preventing aluminum chloride (AlCl3) induced hepatotoxicity and hematotoxicity in mice. Control, Al-treated (a single injection of 25 mg Al3+/kg, i.p.), Al + CGA (2 h after, a single dose of 100 mg/kg, i.p.), CGA + Al (administered to mice daily for 5 days at 30 mg/kg before Al-treatment) and group of CGA per se (administered to mice daily for 5 days at 30 mg/kg) were used. The levels of Al in liver and blood, the activities of transaminases in serum and osmotic fragility were increased by comparison with the control, while the activities of superoxide dismutase and catalase decreased significantly in the Al-treated group. However, treating mice with CGA at either dosing regimens, post- or pre- Al administration alleviate Al oxidative damaging effects, stabilize cell membrane, prevent hepatocyte apoptosis. CGA supplementation may be favorable to avoid Al-induced hematotoxicity and hepatotoxicity for humans.

Minneapolis To Reduce Police Psych Testing After Screening Out Too Many Minorities "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Minneapolis To Reduce Police Psych Testing After Screening Out Too Many Minorities
Posted By Anders Hagstrom On 1:53 PM 12/15/2017 In | No Comments

The city of Minneapolis may fire its police psychology evaluator because his tests screened out too many minority candidates, despite already lowering psych evaluations far below the national standard.
The July police shooting of Justine Damond triggered the city to scrutinize its psychological standards for police, with many claiming theyd become lax. Psychiatrist Thomas Gratzer has run psych testing for the Minneapolis police for the past five years, and in that time, he has eliminated four of the five tests used to determine whether a candidate is fit to be an officer, APM reported Thursday. Now, Gratzer is facing firing not for gutting his standard, but for screening out too many minorities.
Mohamed Noor, the officer who shot Damond, is Somali and was one of 200 cops approved by Gratzers standards over the past five years, which were already far below the national standard. (RELATED: 150 Minnesota Cops Are Convicted Criminals)
Minneapolis used a more standard five-test procedure up until 2012, and according to a 2004 federal study, those tests worked. The study found that the officers flagged as concerning by the tests were three times more likely to engage in misconduct, APM reported.


Theres no way to verify whether Noor shot Damond due to mental unfitness, but many are calling for him to be charged due to the circumstances of the encounter. Noor and his partner were responding to Damonds call when she exited her home and approached the police car. Noor claims to have then heard a loud banging noise as someonepresumably Damondslapped the car.
Seconds later, Noor opened fire and Damond was killed.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges took to Facebook following the shooting, immediately coming to the defense of Minnesotas Somali community.
To the Somali community: I want you to know that you are a valued and appreciated part of Minneapolis, she wrote. I stand with you and support you. The strength and beauty of the Somali and East African communities are a vital part of what makes Minneapolis so strong and beautiful. I am grateful to be your neighbor.

Noor has not faced any charges.

Video: Leftists Embrace Domestic Terrorism, Call For Assassination Of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Over Repeal Of Net Neutrality Rules "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) commissioner Ajit Pai arrives at a FCC Net Neutrality hearing in Washington February 26, 2015. The FCC is expected Thursday to approve Chairman Tom Wheeler's proposed

The Federal Communications Commission voted Thursday to dismantle Obama-era rules that regulated the businesses that connect Americans to the internet in a move that the left has breathlessly attacked since its announcement.

The so-called net neutrality regulations were supposedly put in place to prohibit broadband providers from blocking websites and or charging consumers for higher-quality services or to watch certain content such as Netflix.

The action reversed the agencys 2015 decision, during the Obama administration, to have stronger oversight over broadband providers as Americans have migrated to the internet for most communications. It reflected the view of the Trump administration and the new F.C.C. chairman that unregulated business will eventually yield innovation and help the economy, reported The New York Times.

It will take weeks for the repeal to go into effect, so consumers will not see any of the potential changes right away. But the political and legal fight started immediately. Numerous Democrats on Capitol Hill called for a bill that would reestablish the rules, and several Democratic state attorneys general, including Eric T. Schneiderman of New York, said they would file a suit to stop the change.

While The New York Times noted that the legal fight has started immediately, they failed to even acknowledge the numerous calls for violence against the Republican chairman of the FCC that included direct threats of assassination.

I hope a dark web assassin kills Ajit Pai, one of the disgusting Tweets read. Can someone please kill this subhuman scum? read another.

BitherCash: An Altcoin with a Difference "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

With the myriad of ICOs being launched every few days, investors are now fed up with the run of the mill altcoins that are simply replicas of each other. They lack creativity. Investors are now looking for ICOs that offer a unique proposition that is not based on the same overused technology. Enter BitherCash coin.

Unlike most of the altcoins that rely on the Ethereum Virtual Machine, BitherCash coin is based on a proprietary blockchain that is an amalgamation of both the proof-of-work and the proof-of-stake algorithm. The blockchain has a lot in common with the Bitcoin Core but with several changes to adopt some features of proof-of-work. The blockchain has been written in Script language. As a result, many of the Bitcoin advantages are present in BitherCash.

Apart from a solid architecture, BitherCash Coin has attractive features. The blockchain is completely decentralized to allow the platform users to have access to the transaction blocks. This prevents any case of internal fraud that plague most centralized platforms. Additionally, the ledger is encrypted and synchronized across all devices on the platform. As a result, everyone has a record of the transaction. It provides the first true notion of a personal bank for users.

Bithercash is a Pure Lending Platform

Security is also an important consideration for the platform. BitherCash Coin provides unparalleled security to users on the platform by using pseudonyms to mask the identities of the users and encrypting information to prevent hackers from accessing sensitive information. Additional features like KYC and AML will be added in line with the regulatory measures being added in European and North American countries.

The blockchain has been designed to provide the world a platform where payment processing has been streamlined, and peer-to-peer remittance has been made as easy as possible. This has been achieved by using API clusters that allow low latency transfer. This means that the platform supports high speed and high-volume transfer of coins. These features are expected to endear it to the cryptocurrency community.

Investors will also be able to make money in a variety of ways on the platform. They can make money by trading BitherCash Coin with other cryptocurrencies on major exchanges. This offers decent margins for cryptocurrency traders. The robustness of the platform means that there is little likelihood of collapse. Another avenue investors can make money is by holding BitherCash Coin until it appreciates. Most proof-of-work platforms tend to appreciate in value. As a result, investors can simply buy BitherCash coins and wait until it appreciates. Finally, they can make money by staking the coin. Since it has elements of the Proof-of-Stake architecture, investors c...

Meet the Photographer Who Hiked the Entire Colorado River "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Photographer Pete McBride has traveled around the world with his camera for over 20 years, but one of his most incredible achievements has been hiking the entire Colorado River, including through the Grand Canyon. Heres a great 10-minute profile of McBride by Adorama Spotlight.

McBrides career was born from a passion for adventure photography in his home state of Colorado, USA.

He soon realized that most of his work involved water in some way, and wherever he went he would meet people involved somehow with the precious commodity, whether that would be a family struggling to get enough water, or someone back-flipping into it.

Water is just that one common resource that we all share, says McBride.

Walking the length of the park is an arduous challenge often leaving before dark to enable enough time to find water since much of the time the hikers traversed through cliff bands thousands of feet above the river. Havasupai Tribal members perform traditional dances and songs in protest of the Canyon Uranium Mine on the south rim of Grand Canyon. We are on the fronts lines of contamination if this mine leaks. It will contaminate our water and kill our people, says Carletta Tulusi, a former tribal council member attending the gathering below Red Butte, the Havasupai sacred...

Genistein has potential for reducing anxiety-like behaviour associated with low concentrations of ovarian hormones. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biomed Res Int. 2017 ;2017:9073816. Epub 2017 Oct 31. PMID: 29226152 Abstract Title:  The Phytoestrogen Genistein Produces Similar Effects as 17-Estradiol on Anxiety-Like Behavior in Rats at 12 Weeks after Ovariectomy. Abstract:  The phytoestrogen genistein produces anxiolytic-like effects in ovariectomized rats, which highlights its potential therapeutic effect in ameliorating anxiety in surgical menopausal women. However, no studies have directly compared the effects of identical doses of genistein and 17-estradiol, the main estrogen used in hormone replacement therapy in menopausal women. The present study evaluated the anxiolytic-like effects of identical doses of genistein and 17-estradiol (0.045, 0.09, and 0.18mg/kg/7 days, s.c.) in a surgical menopause model in rats in the elevated plusmaze and locomotor activity tests at 12 weeks after ovariectomy. Additionally, the participation of estrogen receptor- in the anxiolytic-like effect of genistein and 17-estradiol was explored by previous administration of the 5mg/kg tamoxifen antagonist. Genistein and 17-estradiol (0.09 and0.18mg/kg) similarly reduced anxiety-like behavior in the elevated plus maze and also increased the time spent grooming and rearing, without affecting crossing in locomotor activity test. These effects were blocked by tamoxifen. Present results indicate that the phytoestrogen genistein has a similar behavioral profile as 17-estradiol in rats at 12 weeks after ovariectomy through action at the estrogen receptor-. Thus genistein has potential for reducing anxiety-like behavior associated with low concentrations of ovarian hormones, which normally occurs during natural and surgical menopause.

Column: Honoring Differences in Energy Perception "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Energy is all around us and pervades all things. In my opinion, the vast majority of us are born with some ability to sense and work with that energy on a magical level. Among many magical practitioners, there is great emphasis placed on ones ability to see energy. As a community, we tend to value and favor those who can see the circle of energy raised to protect those gathered. We tend to seek out those who perceive the abundant energy around us in technicolor and hear the voices of deities and spirits as clearly as most humans hear one another.

Emphasis on the sight often breeds a sort of hierarchy among magical practitioners that can actually discourage those with less high-definition magical vision from attempting to better understand their own unique way of seeing the unseen and attempting to sharpen it. Instead, those who supposedly dont have it rely heavily upon and edify those who do. This tendency can create a kind of mystique around certain people, a mystique that may hamper the development of others magical and spiritual skill set as it relates to energy perception.

[Pixabay]

While I do believe that energy perception is critically important for a person on this path, the mystique around sight can be misleading for those who are just entering certain magical and spiritual paths or those who may have a Hollywood-influenced view of what energy perception really is. Simply by calling energy perception sight we obscure the fact that energy perception is not monolithic. I know many magical practitioners who feel energy in different ways; for example, as a temperature or pressure changes in their environment.

I know others who hear a humming or drone in the presence of certain types and amounts of energy. Some see energy in their minds eye as colors, forms, and textures. On a related note, oftentimes the voice of a deity or spirit will not be audible either literally or figuratively but instead will manifest as a stray thought, image, or idea that pops into a persons head out of nowhere with a character all its own.

Does this mean that every stray image out the corner of your eye, every difficult to locate sound, or every temperature shift is a message from the spirits or an indication of energy activity? No, not at all, but those sensory experiences can be a starting place for figuring out how you personally perceive energ...

Annie Leibovitz Teaches Photography in Her First Online Course "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Dolly Parton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Barack Obama and family, Bruce Springsteen, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Gates, Queen Elizabeth II, Lady Gaga: name someone who has risen to the very top of the zeitgeist over the past few decades, and Annie Leibovitz has probably photographed them. Her images, in fact, have often come to stand for the images of her subjects in the culture: when we think of certain celebrities, we instinctively imagine them as they appeared on a Leibovitz-shot cover of Rolling Stone or Vanity Fair. Safe to say, then, that she knows a thing or two about how to take a picture that makes an impact.

The people at online education company Masterclass have now packaged that knowledge in "Annie Leibovitz Teaches Photography," a course that joins their existing lineup that includes Helen Mirren on actingSteve Martin on comedyWerner Herzog on filmmaking, and Herbie Hancock on jazz. For a price of $90 (or $180 for a year-long pass to all of their classes), Masterclass offers a package of workbook-accompanied video lessons in which "Annie teaches you how to develop concepts, work with subjects, shoot with natural light, and bring images to life in post-production." (If you want to give this course as a gift, just click here.)

The early lessons in "Annie Leibovitz Teaches Photography" cover subjects like memories of her own development as a photographer to discussions of her influences and her view of the medium itself.

Bombshell: Anti-Trump Lawyer Sought Out PAYMENTS For Women Who Would Accuse Donald Trump Of Sexual Assault "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

lisabloomweinsteinaccusers-640x480

A media promoted, leftist womens rights lawyer openly sought to arrange payments from both liberal donors and the mainstream media for the women she represented who accused then presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, according to a bombshell new report from The Hill.

The report not only exposes the lengths that California lawyer Lisa Bloom was willing to go to stop Donald Trump from becoming president, it also points to the fact that she herself was attempting to make money off accusations that Trump sexually assaulted multiple women.

According to the report, Blooms efforts including arranging a liberal donor to pay off one of the accusers mortgage, offering to sell an alleged victims story to TV outlets, and even trying to secure a six figure payment for another women who eventually decided not to come forward with her supposed accusations.

One of the Bloom clients who DID receive financial help in exchange for her allegations against Trump was New York City makeup artist Jill Harth who herself defended the revelations while claiming that the money had nothing to do with her coming forward in the first place.

The Hill reported:

The former beauty contestant manager filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997 and then withdrew it under pressure. The news media discovered the litigation during the election, and Harths name became public in the summer of 2016. She asked Bloom to represent her in the fall after hearing Trump describe her allegations against him as false, and became a vocal critic of Trump.

I consider myself lucky to have had Lisa Bloom by my side after my old lawsuit resurfaced. She advised me with great competence and compassion, Harth told The Hill.

Harth said she did not originally ask Bloom for money, even though her cosmetics business suffered from the notoriety of the campaign stories about her.

But later, Bloom ar...

A media promoted, leftist womens rights lawyer openly sought to arrange payments from both liberal donors and the mainstream media for the women she represented who accused then presidential candidate Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, according to a bombshell new report from The Hill.

The report not only exposes the lengths that California lawyer Lisa Bloom was willing to go to stop Donald Trump from becoming president, it also points to the fact that she herself was attempting to make money off accusations that Trump sexually assaulted multiple women.

According to the report, Blooms efforts including arranging a liberal donor to pay off one of the accusers mortgage, offering to sell an alleged victims story to TV outlets, and even trying to secure a six figure payment for another women who eventually decided not to come forward with her supposed accusations.

One of the Bloom clients who DID receive financial help in exchange for her allegations against Trump was New York City makeup artist Jill Harth who herself defended the revelations while claiming that the money had nothing to do with her coming forward in the first place.

The Hill reported:

The former beauty contestant manager filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Trump in 1997 and then withdrew it under pressure. The news media discovered the litigation during the election, and Harths name became public in the summer of 2016. She asked Bloom to represent her in the fall after hearing Trump describe her allegations against him as false, and became a vocal critic of Trump.

I consider myself lucky to have had Lisa Bloom by my side after my old lawsuit resurfaced. She advised me with great competence and compassion, Harth told The Hill.

Harth said she did not originally ask Bloom for money, even though her cosmetics business suffered from the notoriety of the campaign stories about her.

But later, Bloom arranged a small payment from the licensing of some photos to the news media, and then set up a GoFundMe.com account to raise money for Harth in October 2016. Jill put herself out there, facing off with Donald Trump. Lets show her some love, the online fundraising...

Massachusetts State Auditor Finds Widespread Rape and Sexual Abuse in Foster Care but DCF Officials Wont Report It "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Health Impact News

The theoretical function of Child Protective Services is to protect children from harm, removing them from their homes when they are being hurt. A deep-seated value of Western culture is that we need to protect children from abuse, and the public has overwhelmingly supported the use of tax dollars going to help the children who are being abused.

But what happens when the very agency charged with protecting children is, in reality, leading to or ignoring the physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and even deaths of the children in their care? Is anyone held accountable?

Where do their victims turn when social workers assigned to protect them turn a deaf ear and a blind eye?

Hundreds of parents who have spoken with Health Impact News about their child or children being taken from them have asked how they can lose their child though they have done nothing wrong, while at the same time the social workers routinely ignore the abuse of their children in foster care.

On December 7, 2017, Massachusetts State Auditor Suzanne Bump released an appalling audit of her states Child Protective Services, the Department of Children and Families (DCF). (See text of audit here.)

The audit, which covered 2014 and 2015, found that there were many instances where children in state care, whether in foster homes or group homes or other facilities under DCF care, were abused physically or sexually, but DCF failed to report the incidents to the proper authorities.

In the week following the release of the audit, many news outlets, both mainstream and alternative, have carried the story, and the ensuing political battle between Bumps office and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.

512-Year-Old Greenland Shark May Be the Oldest Living Vertebrate on Earth "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A post shared by Julius Nielsen (@juniel85) on Jul 29, 2017 at 12:37pm PDT

In a study recently published in Science, a group of researchers posited that they may have found the oldest vertebrate on Eartha Greenland shark that could be up to 512 years old. The species, also known as a gurry shark or a grey shark, is restricted to the cold waters of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans and surprisingly, until very recently, it was difficult for scientists to understand their lifespan.

The slow-growing shark increases in size at about 1 cm (0.39 inches) a year and can reach over 500 cm (16.5 feet), so when the research team happened upon an 18-foot specimen a few months ago, they knew they had something special on their hands. In order to estimate the age, they used a mathematical model that analyzed the lens and cornea of the shark. Of the 28 Greenland sharks analyzed, with an average lifespan of 390 years, they found the 18-foot shark could be up to 512 years old. This would date its birth to 1505, just one year before the death of Christopher Columbus.

It's important to remember that the carbon dating does have a margin of error, however, so the exact test came back with a margin of 120 years, meaning the shark could be anywhere from 272 to 512 years old. Still, it's a stunning discovery considering how difficult dating these marine animals has been, up until last year.

Curcumin or combined curcuminoids are effective in lowering the fasting blood glucose concentrations of individuals with dysglycemia. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Pharmacol Res. 2017 Sep 16. Epub 2017 Sep 16. PMID: 28928074 Abstract Title:  Curcumin or combined curcuminoids are effective in lowering the fasting blood glucose concentrations of individuals with dysglycemia: Systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. Abstract:  Curcuminoids have received considerable attention as therapeutical adjuvants in the treatment of dysglycemia. The purpose of this meta-analysis was to evaluate whether the supplementation of turmeric extract, curcuminoids and/or isolated curcumin is more effective than placebo in decreasing fasting blood glucose (FBG) in adults. MEDLINE, CENTRAL, ScienceDirect and gray literature databases were searched. Randomized controlled trials with the following criteria were included: (1) studied individuals older than 18 years, supplemented with curcumin, curcuminoids and/or turmeric extract (2) had a follow-up4 weeks (3) used a placebo group. Titles and abstracts were screened and potentially eligible articles were retrieved. The primary outcome was FBG. The secondary outcomes were HbA1c and HOMA-IR. Eleven studies were included. In the overall analysis, turmeric, curcuminoids and curcumin supplementation led to a decrease in FBG (-8.88, 95% CI: [-5.04 to -2.72] mg/dL, p=0.005). Supplementation of curcuminoids and/or curcumin decreased the concentrations of HbA1c (-0.54, 95% CI: [-1.09 to -0.002] %, p=0.049) but were not able to decrease HOMA-IR (-1.26, 95% CI: [-3.71 to -1.19], p=0.31). Sensitivity analyses revealed that baseline FBG was an important covariate. Heterogeneity was high in the overall analyses and there was evidence of publication bias. Supplementation of isolated curcumin or combined curcuminoids were both effective in lowering the FBG concentrations of individuals with some degree of dysglycemia, but not in non-diabetic individuals. Isolated curcumin lead to significant decreases of the HbA1c compared to placebo.

How to Run Nik Collection Standalone Without Photoshop or Lightroom "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

DxO recently announced that it has acquired the Nik Collection suite of popular photo tools after Google abandoned development in May. The Collection is still available as a free download and can be run as standalone programs independent of Photoshop and Lightroom. Heres how.

Because the old Nik Collection is no longer maintained, some users have voiced concern that the classic plugins will not work with future versions of Photoshop and Lightroom. By running the Nik Collection programs standalone, this is no longer a problem.

If you havent already, you can download the Nik Collection for free by entering your email address at DxOs website. You will receive an email address confirmation, and then a link to download the Collection.

The World Health Organization Confirms that Medical Marijuana Carries No Health Risks for its Users "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The debate regarding the use of medical marijuana and its legalization has been long contested here in the United States. As early as 1937 the first federal limitations regarding cannabis were introduced, however, new discoveries surrounding the use of cannabis and its potential medicinal purposes has added an additional layer to the discussion. In 1996 California made history as the first state to legalize medical cannabis, a decision that would soon follow in many other states throughout the country.

One of the big concerns of those that oppose the use of medical cannabis is the potential harm that its use may cause those who use it. Part of the reason for this concern is the stigma that has been created in discussing marijuana.

Source: dmazcorp.com

 

Experts have identified a number of side effects associated with those who use marijuana recreationally including temporary memory loss, an altered perception of time, mood swings, a lack of coordination and challenges thinking or problem-solving. It is important to note, however, that the medical use of marijuana would be monitored much closer than the average recreational drug user. Others argue that legalizing cannabis for medicinal purposes will open a door for the legalization for recreational use, acting as a gateway to bigger problems.

Over the past few months, the World Health Organization has been carefully assessing both the potential benefits and risks of cannabidiol (CBD), one of the components of cannabis. This specific cannabinoid is non-psychoactive and has been associated with a number of different health benefits. This is not to be confused with THC, the psychoactive property responsible for the well-known high.

Disney to Buy National Geographic in $52 Billion Deal for Fox "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

National Geographic photographers will likely soon find themselves under the same parent company as Disneyland photographers. Disney is set to take ownership of the famous yellow-bordered magazine as part of its $52 billion purchase of 21st Century Fox.

The acquisition was announced by Disney yesterday and include 21st Century Foxs movie and TV businesses as well as a large number of assets. One of these assets is Foxs stake in National Geographic Partners.

Back in September 2015, 21st Century Fox inked a deal with the National Geographic Society that gave Fox a 73% controlling interest in the magazine in exchange for $725 million, an agreement that turned National Geographic into a for-profit company.

Two months later, National Geographic laid off 9% (about 180) of its 2,000 employees as it prepared for its new life as a Fox company. It was the largest headcount reduction in the 127-year history of the National Geographic Society.

National Geographic Society continues to own the remaining 27% of the partnership, called National Geographic Partners. As part of its new deal with Disney, Fox is including its 73% stake in National Geographic Partners.

National Geographic magazine currently has 40 local-language editions, ~3.5 subscribers in the US, ~6.5 million subscribers total, and a total reach of over 30 million adults around the world.

If the $52 billion deal gets US regulator approval it will be closely scrutinized for anti-trust issues National Geographic will be joining Disneys ever-growing stable of well-known brands assets that include Pixar, Lucasfilm, Marvel, and ABC.

How Cats Can Protect You and Your Home From Evil Spirits and Bad Energy "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Cats are truly marvelous creatures. They are much more magical than most people are aware of.

Not only do cats protect our homes from mice and anything in the form of a laser pointer, they also ward off evil spirits and block out negative energies. Cats are known for being able to sense negative energies and being able to correct them. Most people seem to feel a sense of peace when a happy kitty in is their presence.

Cats are aware of our auras and can sense when our energies are shifting. They can enter our auras and correct them. Cats, as strange as it may sound, are able to provide us with a healing therapy. Spiritually having a feline friend will help keep you at the top of your game. Even in Buddhist teachings a cat often acts as a temporary resting place for the soul of a highly spiritual person.

Cats are able to make us aware that there is a spirit or something of that sort in our homes. If you ever notice your cat hissing at nothing it is because they are sensing something you are unable to. They are also able to share their vibrations with us when they show affection. Have you ever been loving on a cat and noticed an instant feeling of relaxation come over you? That cat was sharing its vibrations.

While some people think all cats are lazy, they are lazy for good reason. When your cat is sleeping it is releasing all of the negative energies it has absorbed from you. If your cat sleeps more than anything else it is because he or she is doing you a lot more favors than you think. To be completely honest it is good to have more than one cat so that they can share the burden.

Some people even go so far as to believe that angels appear as cats. Peter Kreeft wrote in his book Angels and (Demons): What Do We Really Know About Them? that he thought his guardian angel inhabited the body of his pet cat when he was feeling down. He said there was something special about his cat and that it influenced him in many ways.

That being said, you dont have to be looking at a cat in its spirit form to know it is special. You can gain inspiration from being around any cat. Now I know there are some anti-cat people out there who will claim that there is nothing magical about felines but I beg to differ. There is definitely something ther...
