A gut-wrenching experience: Authors retract, replace JAMA paper "IndyWatch Feed Health"

When economist Jason Hockenberry looked at data comparing some of the financial issues facing different U.S. hospitals, he was surprised by what he saw. Hockenberry was examining the effects of a recently introduced U.S. program that penalizes hospitals with relatively high rates of readmissions for certain conditions by reducing Medicare payments. Although Hockenberry expected hospitals []

7 Reasons to Homestead: Why a Self Sufficient Lifestyle is Critical Today "IndyWatch Feed Health"

homesteadingIf the numerous natural disasters in recent weeks have taught us anything, its that the more citizens are self sufficient, the better they fare when Mother Nature runs amok. When this self sufficiency is pursued as a lifestyle, it is known as homesteading.

Have you noticed that in the aftermath of unexpected and devastating disruptions to modern life, it is frequently the homesteaders who rise up as the everyday heroes? I know I have.

The Cajun navy is a great example of homesteaders in action. These are folks whose self sufficiency skills gave them the ability to reach out and and help others in need during the direst of circumstances.(...)

Bega Valley: Fluoride deferral applauded as new reports presented to council "IndyWatch Feed Health"

There were cheers and applause in council chambers on Wednesday as councillors agreed to defer the vote on whether to fluoridate Bega Valley Shire water supplies.

The motion to defer followed three passionate presentations supported by community members in the gallery and included information on fluoride use in other countries.

Rob Slazenger, of Bermagui provided data relating to the use of of fluoride in a number of western industrialised countries which he said showed some of the the  non-fluoride users had better dental outcomes than those who did use it.

He also produced records from NSW Health of councils water fluoridation dosage data. There are four water supply systems in the Bega Valley Shire, Tantawanglo-Kiah, Brogo-Bermagui, Bemboka and Bega-Tathra. Fluoride has been added to the Bega-Tathra water supply system since 1963 and council is now considering adding fluoride to the Tantawanglo-Kiah and Brogo-Bermagui water supplies.

The data supplied by NSW Health appears to show gaps in record keeping and an extended period of overdosing between March and May 2010. A dose of 1 part per million (ppm) in water is recommended but overdosing varied from 30 to 97 per cent in the figures given to Mr Slazenger.

All presentations referenced the possibility of council referring the decision to NSW Health with speakers reminding council that it should be councillors own decision.

Greg Ferguson, of Pambula said a transfer of the decision to NSW Health would be a mockery of the democratic process.

Council would be tainted as gutless. The whole process has been a sham, Mr Ferguson said adding that the use of Hunter H2O as a community consultant was a gross conflict of interest.

It was a point not lost on councillor Russell Fitzpatrick who said he felt no obligation to transfer the matter to NSW Health.

I totally agree its a decision of this council. No way should there be an abrogation of our authority on this matter, Cr Fitzpatrick said to applause from the floor.

Director transport and utilities Terry Dodd mentioned the voluminous nature of material presented.

Given the number of comments it would be unreasonable to try and digest these today, Mr Dodds said and asked for time to review them.

Musician Taryn Southern Is Composing Her New Album with Artificial Intelligence: Hear the First Track "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Break Free is a new song by Taryn and Amper. The former, Taryn Southern, is a musician and singer popular on Youtube. The latter, however, is not human at all. Instead, Amper is an artificially intelligent music composer, producer and performer, developed by a combination of music and technology experts and now put to the test, being the engine behind Taryns single and eventually a full album, tentatively called I AM AI.

To understand what is Taryn and what is Amper in this project, the singer talks about it in this Verge interview:

The way it works is to give the platform certain input like BPM, instrumentation that I like, genre, key, etc. The platform will spit a song out at me, and then I can iterate from there, making adjustments to the instruments and the key. I can even change the genre or emotional feel or the song, until I get something that Im relatively happy with. Once I have that, I download all the stems of the instrumentation to build actual song structure.

What Ampers really good at is composing and producing instrumentation, but it doesnt yet understand song structure. It might give you a verse or the chorus and its up to me to stitch these pieces together so that it sounds like something familiar you would hear on the radio. Once Im happy with the song, then I write the vocal melody and lyrics.

The key sentence for cynics is the second to last one. Amper delivers the familiar, or rather, Taryn makes Amper work until she gets something familiar. AI is not at the stage yet where it might surprise us with a decision, except in the cases where it goes spectacularly wrong. Right now its very good at learning patterns, at imitating, at delivering a variation on a theme. (Thats why its really good at imitation Bach, for example.)

We could imagine, however, a future where AI would be able to take a number of musical elements, styles, and genres and come out with a hybrid that weve never heard before. And would that be any better than having a human do so?

Earlier this summer, I visited a quiet park in south London, where families pushed strollers around a small lake, and solitary people read books on benches in the sun. Nestled in the foliage by the water is a curious relic from the Crystal Palace Exhibition which gives the Crystal Palace Park its name: a herd of concrete dinosaurs, lazing with gaping jaws, and standing scaly and proud by the trees. The prehistoric creatures were made by artist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins in the 1850s, and are recognized as the worlds first dinosaur sculptures. Yet they dont look quite how we envision dinosaurs today; the Iguanodons appear like rotund iguanas, the Dicynodonts like overgrown turtles, although contemporary knowledge suggests they never had shells.

Water authority to seek OK to add fluoridation equipment as soon as next week "IndyWatch Feed Health"

As early as next week, Meadville Area Water Authority will seek official approval to add fluoridation equipment, according to Tom Thompson of Gannett Fleming, MAWAs consulting engineer.

Thats what our goal is, Thompson said following Wednesdays MAWA board meeting.

The equipment design for fluoridation has been completed, Thompson told the board.

Although the board voted in June to fluoridate the water supplied by the authority to its customers, it must still seek a permit to do so from the state Department of Environmental Protection. At the time of the boards controversial 3-2 vote in favor of fluoridation, Ted Watts, the authoritys attorney, said that the permit approval process will involve additional public hearings.

Review of permit applications like MAWAs typically takes 120 business days about seven months according to Melanie Williams, DEP community relations coordinator.

Thompson said he already has attended a pre-application meeting with DEP representatives.

Researchers urge caution over study linking fluoride exposure in pregnancy to lower IQs in children "IndyWatch Feed Health"

nti-fluoridation activists call it the biggest moment in the history of this whole debate. Its the response health policy experts and some of the authors themselves feared

Already there are people who claim fluoridated water is doing bad things to us. Now comes a new study suggesting a link between fluoride exposure in pregnancy and lower IQs in children.

Anti-fluoridation activists are calling it the biggest moment in the history of this whole debate and that any government that continues to add fluoride to tap water is condoning one huge, awful human experiment.

Its exactly the response health policy experts and some of the authors themselves feared.

There are some pretty bizarre theories out there, such as the idea that fluoride is being used to sedate the population, said University of Alberta health policy researcher Tim Caulfield.

I worry that this study which the authors note should be replicated, and they call for further analysis and research will be presented as definitive. It is not.

In what is being described as the first study of its kind and size exploring fluoride exposure and different stages of brain development, University of Toronto-led researchers analyzed data from 287 mother-child pairs in Mexico City. The study recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005, and has followed the women and their children since.

The researchers measured fluoride in archived urine samples taken from the women when they were pregnant, as well as from their children when they were between ages six and 12.

Next they looked at how levels of fluoride in urine related to how children scored on intelligence and neurocognitive function tests when they were four, and again when they were between six and 12.

Children scored 2.5 to three points lower on IQ tests for every 0.5 milligram-per-litre increase in their mothers urinary fluoride levels beyond 0.8 mg/L.

There was no clear association between IQ scores and values below 0.8 mg/L. As well, the childrens own urinary fluoride levels, measured when they were being tested, didnt seem to have a significant effect.

That suggests that whatever effect fluoride might have on brain development occurs in the womb.

In Canada and the U.S., most fluoride exposure comes from the fluoridation of drinking water to prevent cavities, and fluoride in toothpaste and other dental products.

In Mexico, not many people drink tap water, said Dr. Howard Hu, the studys principal investigator and founding dean of...

American Dental Association Responds to Study Regarding Fluoride Intake in Mexico "IndyWatch Feed Health"

CHICAGO, September 19, 2017  The American Dental Association (ADA) examined a study in Environmental Health Perspectives based on fluoride intake in Mexico and concludes the findings are not applicable to the U.S. The intake of fluoride in Mexico is significantly different from the U.S. In Mexico, fluoride is added to salt (known as salt fluoridation) and it also exists naturally in varying degrees in community water. In the U.S., fluoride is not added to salt and it is only added to water in cases where the natural occurrence of fluoride is lower than the recommended level to prevent tooth decay. The ADA continues to endorse fluoridation of public water as the most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay.

The authors of the study suggest that prenatal exposure to fluoride may cause lower IQ in children. However, because it is unknown how the subjects of the study ingested the fluoride whether through salt, water, or both no conclusions can be drawn regarding the effects of community water fluoridation in the U.S. Moreover, according to the ADA, the best available scientific evidence shows no association between the U.S.-recommended amount of fluoride used to prevent tooth decay and IQ.

More than 70 years of research and practical experience has shown that fluoridation is safe and effective. Fluoride helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth more resistant to decay.

Fluoridation has been named by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of 10 great health achievements of the 20th century, and more than 100 U.S. and international health organizations including the World Health Organization recognize the public health benefits of community water fluoridation for preventing dental decay.

KSM-66 Secures Medicine Hunter for Ashwagandha Campaign "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Medicine hunter Chris Kilham is the centerpiece of a significant push by the makers of KSM-66 to educate the community on the benefits of the ancient Indian adaptogenic botanical  ashwagandha.

Ashwagandha Advantage (www.ashwagandhaadvantage.com) is a multimedia website created by Informa for Ixoreal Biomed, the marketers of KSM-66, to expand awareness of the benefits of the 4,000 year-old Ayervedic herb.

Kilham, who travels the world researching and promoting plant-based medicines, said he was approached by Kartikeya Baldwa, Ixoreal Biomed director, and invited to be part of their program.

I completely agreed. Clearly Im supporting that brand, but in a much larger context. I have a better forum for increasing the visibility of ashwagandha, Killham told WholeFoods. In my experience with promoting botanicals, a rising tide lifts all boats.

Ashwagandha is one of the most remarkable plants, Kilham adds. Its 4,000 years old and has been used by hundreds of millions of people. Among the things it supports are fatigue and exhaustion. It also has the ability to improve sexual and reproductive health.

What makes ashwaganda different from other adaptogens is that you experience it, Kilham says. When you take it, you feel relieved of stress, have more liberated energy, and enhanced mood. Youre relieved of the blues. People have this experience and they like it.

The plant was in danger of extinction about 20 years ago, says Kilham, who described his experience at an ashwagandha harvest in India as remarkable and said hes pretty much a daily ashwagandha user.

Kilham will be at Supply Side West Booth EE-142 and is working through the end of the year with KSM-66, which is now an ingredient in about 500 products. Ixoreal owns and controls the entire supply chain from farms to production to distribution.

Among the other participants Ixoreal has on tap for SSW is the Indian Minister of Health.

NattoPharma To Launch MenaQ7 Full Spectrum K2 at SupplySide West "IndyWatch Feed Food"

OSLO, Norway and Metuchen, NJ NattoPharma is launching at SupplySide West next week a full-spectrum vitamin K2 it calls the result of a proprietary technological breakthrough providing menaquinones (MK) 6, 7, 8 and 9, a range of isomers vital for cardiovascular health.

NattoPharma has driven the creation of the vitamin K2 market, sponsoring the important research validating the importance of K2 for human health, and the work has shaped the MenaQ7 brand, said Dr. Hogne Vik, NattoPharma chief medical officer, in a statement. The important epidemiological studies that led us to our ground-breaking human clinical research used fermented cheese as the source of vitamin K2, which led us to create MenaQ7 Full Spectrum.

According to researchers, vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays an unequivocal role in the activation of Gla-proteins. The Rotterdam and Prospect studies have shown that food-derived vitamin K (such as from cheeses) improves long-term cardiovascular health outcomes because it more specifically delivers the long-chain menaquinones MK-6, 7, 8 and 9, they said.

While fermented cheeses are the best dietary source of menaquinones in the West, most will not be able to consume enough to obtain optimal amounts of vitamin K2, noted Dr. Vik. NattoPharma offers to the market a raw material that delivers the range of nenaquinones found in foods.

MenaQ7 Full Spectrum is naturally fermented using chickpea protein, offering an all-trans vitamin K2 that is free from gluten, soy and all known allergens, and is suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

NattoPharma is also hosting iHeart at its booth P115. This company has pioneered a simple 30-second test that helps to determine ones Internal Age by measuring aortic stiffness. The system was developed by Dr. Jess Goodman, a general practitioner and medical advisor at three long-term care facilities, who will be on hand to conduct measurements and answer questions.

Baker Creates Cake Pops That Are Tiny Edible Sculptures on a Stick "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Best Cake Pops by Raymond Tan

One of the best things about baking is that anyone can do it. With some basic techniques and imagination, its possible to produce edible creations that enter the realm of food art. Raymond Tan, aka Ray Ray, is a self-taught baker who uses the activity as his creative outlet. About two years ago, he explains, I set myself a challenge to bring a dessert every time I was invited to a party, hence my first cake left my tiny apartment kitchen and the rest was history.

Since the life-changing soiree, Tan has produced many eye-catching treats. His forte is a twist on cake pops; these desserts are typically shaped as small balls affixed to the top of paper candy sticks, but Tan uses wider wooden popsicle sticks that allow him to make more complex pops. With an increased surface design, he layers colors and textures to sculpt cute animal characters, marble surface patterns, and assemble pretty floral designs resembling bountiful bouquets. Like all incredible food art, Tans cake pops seem almost too good to eatbut with flavors like white lotus and chestnut, who could resist?

Follow along with Tans mouth-watering creations on his Instagram. And if youre local to Paris, hell be teaching a weekend workshop with Amourducake on October 7 and October 8, 2017.

New US Government Study on Fluoride Damage to Brain "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Fluoride Free New Zealand is calling on the 23 councils (out of the total of 67) that still fluoridate, to urgently implement a moratorium on fluoridation to protect the brains of children being born today in their community.

A major study published on Tuesday in the US Governments Environmental Health Perspectives has found that children born to mothers exposed to fluoride while pregnant, have significantly lower IQ scores. This is particularly relevant to New Zealand where half of the population is currently subjected to fluoridation.

The study measured fluoride in urine and found the average level of fluoride in urine was 0.9mg/L (mg/L = parts per million). To relate this to water fluoride concentration, a separate study found that pregnant women in an area with 0.4 to 0.8 ppm water fluoride only had slightly lower urine fluoride than the average participants in this study. The Ministry of Health recommends fluoride chemicals be added to the water at 0.85ppm.
Pregnant women in New Zealand in fluoridated areas likely have similar levels of urine fluoride as those in the Mexican study. Urine fluoride reflects total fluoride intake from all sources, not just fluoridated water. The paper also reports that in the USA, which is 70% fluoridated, urine fluoride ranges from about 0.5 to 1.5 mg/L which fully overlaps the range found in the Mexican study.
The child of a mother who was drinking water with 0.85ppm fluoride would be predicted to have 5 IQ lower IQ points than if the mother had drunk water with close to zero fluoride in it. This obviously has huge consequences for New Zealand children.

The Ministry of Health recommended 1ppm until the 1990s when it reduced to a range from 0.7ppm to 1ppm, with a target of 0.85ppm. The US Human and Health Services have directed a maximum of 0.7ppm for fluoridation.

This study was very carefully done by a group of researchers who have produced over 50 papers on the cognitive health of children in relationship to environmental exposures.  It was funded by the US Governments National Institute of Health and was a multi-million dollar study.  This was the groups first study of fluoride their other studies mostly dealing with lead, mercury and other environmental neurotoxicants.

This study controlled for a wide range of potential factors that might have skewed the results and produced a false effect.  It was able to largely rule out confounding effects by these other factors.  The factors ruled out included lead, mercury, socio-economic status, smoking, alcohol use, and health problems during pregnancy.

This study offers confirmation of previous studies in Mexico, China...

sewing: linen hadley top "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Lindsay of @lindsayinstitches

I adore Grainline Studio patterns. Somehow Jen manages to create styles that are on trend but completely classic at the same time. The Hadley pattern is no exception, especially when worn as a linen Hadley top.

The theme on the blog this week is How do you wear your Hadley? As you have already seen from the other contributors, there are so many ways. Given the season change, my initial thought was that my Hadley should have sleeves, but then I wondered how the tank might work as a layering piece.

I decided to go sleeveless like view B, but with the jewel neckline and pleated keyhole back from view A.

When deciding on a fabric for my Hadley (available in the shop as both a digital and printed pattern), I was immediately drawn to this beautiful linen in the shop. Doesnt it just scream fall to you? Makes me want to eat all things pumpkin!

Having worked with Brussels Washer Linen before, I knew it would have just the right weight and drape for this pattern. All the texture of traditional linen but none of the stiffness. Hooray for 45% rayon content!

The earthiness of the linen was giving me a strong sweater vest vibe, but in the best way. I decided to roll with that, and Im loving how this looks over a crisp collared shirt! Im also thinking it could be fantastic over a stripey tee or under a cardigan.

Thats what is so great about this pattern. It comes with multiple views built in, but when you mix up...

An Epitaph for Achilles Son "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Ausonius, Epitaphia heroum qui bello Troico interfuerunt 9 Pyrrho

I am buried at the middle of the world-
I who showed greater valor
Than my father did, for I,
Pyrrhus, still a boy,
Won the spoils of a king.
Wicked Orestes slew me
Before the altars, by trickery-
But why be shocked? Already
He was mad from his mothers murder.

Impius ante aras quem fraude peremit Orestes-

The Great AIP Pumpkin Round-Up "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Its officially pumpkin season! Even if the weather hasnt quite changed where you live, chances are youre starting to crave all those fabulous fall flavors. While most of us associate fall with the pumpkin spice seasoning ubiquitous in frothy coffee drinks, pumpkin itself is an amazing addition to both sweet and savory dishes. One cup of cooked, mashed pumpkin provides a whopping 245% of our DV for vitamin A (as vitamin A precursors like beta-carotene); 20% of our DV for vitamin C; 15% of our DV for potassium; about 10% for vitamin E, vitamin B2, copper, and manganese; and at least 5 percent for vitamins B1, B3 B5, B6, and B9 (folate),  iron, magnesium, and phosphorus; plus nearly 3 grams of fiber! Not too shabby for only 49 calories and a puny glycemic load of 3!  Not only does pumpkin boast impressive nutrient stats, but it also tastes delicious and is very versatile as this round-up easily demonstrates!

In celebration of the season, Ive rounded up a bunch of my favorite pumpkin recipes from my talented recipe-blogging friends! These include sweets, breakfasts, drinks and even some savory dishes to make the most of the pumpkins coming into season now.

These recipes are bursting with flavor, and as a bonus, theyre all AIP!

Image: Extensive list of weather control patents prove the technology exists to augment and control powerful storms

(Natural News) Extreme weather events like Hurricane Harvey in Texas and Hurricane Irma in Florida seem to be on the upswing, and some people are now asking themselves: is there more to these types of storms than meets the eye? A quick perusal of the governments many patents and trademarks for weather modification and geoengineering suggests that the powers that be, indeed, have covert tools at their disposal that are capable of affecting and perhaps even controlling certain elements of the weather.

Compiled by GeoEngineeringWatch.org, the list dates back to 1891 and offers some keen insights as to what the deep state could be up to in terms of creating severe weather events. The earliest known patent, filed on July 16, 1891, is entitled, Method of Producing Rain-fall. It explains how the rapid evaporation and air chilling can be used to create condensation in the atmosphere cloud-seeding, so to speak thus producing more rain. A man by the name of Louis Gathmann of Chicago, Illinois, is credited as being the inventor of this technique.

Several decades later on August 6, 1913, another patent was filed by a man named James M. Cordray for a Rain-Maker balloon that can supposedly produce rain at any given time, even during dry seasons. Several others of the earliest known geoengineering patents, in fact, all pertain to creating artificial rain, clouds, and...

Guess Who? - German woman robbed, raped, gagged and left tied to pole naked in Rome. "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

German woman raped, left tied to pole naked in Rome

Victim is 57-year-old German, found nude by taxi driver


(ANSA) - Rome, September 18 - A 57-year-old German woman was raped last night at Rome's Villa Borghese park, sources said Monday.

The woman was found gagged and naked tied to a pole in the park by a taxi driver at around 1am on Monday, the sources said.

The driver untied the woman, who was in a state of shock, and called the police.
She told police that she was attacked where she was found, the sources added.

The clothes of the woman, who has been in Italy for six months and has been taken to the city's Santo Spirito hospital, were found near to the pole. She told investigators that she was attacked by young man, aged around 20, probably a foreigner, the sources said.

He is also said to have robbed 40 euros from the woman, who is of no fixed abode. Police have been working in the park for several hours to find evidence that could lead to the assailant.

The case follows a series of recent acts of sexual violence in Italy, including in the capital.

Fluoride OKd for Albuquerque water supply "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Fluoride again will be added to Albuquerques water supply.

Water utility board members voted 5-2 Wednesday to approve a $250,000 appropriation that will allow the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority to buy the equipment needed to resume supplemental drinking-water fluoridation, which the utility halted in 2011.

The decision followed nearly an hour of passionate pleas by both opponents and supporters of fluoridation similar to comments expressed at two earlier public hearings on the issue.

At the end of the day, when theres a question about science, we need to listen to the scientists, board member and Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis said before he voted in favor of resuming fluoridation. Davis withdrew his proposal for an advisory question on the 2018 general election ballot that would have asked Bernalillo County voters whether they support or oppose supplemental fluoridation.

Voting against the appropriation were Albuquerque Councilors Klarissa Pea and Trudy Jones. Joining Davis in support were Bernalillo County Commissioners Debbie OMalley, Wayne Johnson and Maggie Hart Stebbins and Albuquerques Chief Administrative Officer Rob Perry, who represents Mayor Richard Berry on the board.

Im just philosophically opposed to this, Jones said in explaining her opposition to fluoridation. I dont think at any time the government should add something to our water if some people dont want it.

Jones remarks echoed those of several opponents who told the board that people who want fluoride can obtain it from commercial products such as toothpaste and mouthwash and from fluoride treatments provided by dentists, but the water utility shouldnt force fluoride on people who believe they are harmed by it.

There are health concerns that people talked about, Pea said. For people with kidney disease theres a lot of concern about fluoride.

Pea also said she was troubled that supporters pitch drinking water fluoridation as a way of helping low-income children. To me its an assumption that lower-income children dont brush their teeth, she said.

The measure approved Wednesday requires the utility to maintain fluoride levels between 0.65 and 0.72 milligrams per liter in the public water supply.

Fluoride is a mineral found naturally in Albuquerques water supply at levels of about 0.4 to 0.5 milligram per liter, according to a report prepared by the utility staff.

The city began supplemental fluoridation in 1972, but ended the practice in 2011 while federal officials considered new recommendations about fluoridation levels.

In 2015, the U.S...

How to Succeed in Math: Answer-Getting vs. Problem-Solving "IndyWatch Feed Education"

You want your child to succeed in math because it opens so many doors in the future.

But kids have a short-term perspective. They dont really care about the future. They care about getting through tonights homework and moving on to something more interesting.

So how can you help your child learn math?

When kids face a difficult math problem, their attitude can make all the difference. Not so much their I hate homework! attitude, but their mathematical worldview.

Does your child see math as answer-getting? Or as problem-solving?

Answer-getting asks What is the answer?, decides whether it is right, and then goes on to the next question.

Problem-solving asks Why do you say that? and listens for the explanation.

Problem-solving is not really interested in right or wrongit cares more about makes sense or needs justification.

Homeschool Memories

In our quarter-century-plus of homeschooling, my children and I worked our way through a lot of math problems. But often, we didnt bother to take the calculation all the way to the end.

Russia warns US it will strike back if militia attacks in Syria dont end "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Russia warns US it will strike back if militia attacks in Syria dont end

The troops of the Syrian Democratic Force (SDF), a predominantly Kurdish militia that receives support from the US military, have twice attacked positions of the Syrian Arab Army in the Deir ez-Zor governorate with mortar and rocket fire, according to the Russian Defense Ministry's spokesman, Major General Igor Konashenkov.

Russia unequivocally told the commanders of US forces in Al Udeid Airbase (Qatar) that it will not tolerate any shelling from the areas where the SDF are stationed, Konashenkov said, adding that the attacks put at risk Russian military advisers embedded with Syrian government troops.

Fire from positions in regions [controlled by the SDF] will be suppressed by all means necessary, he stressed.

Konashenkov said Moscow suspected the SDF of colluding with the terrorist group Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) in Deir ez-Zor rather than fighting it, as it claims to be. He said Russia had detected the transfer of SDF fighters from the IS stronghold of Raqqa, to join forces with the jihadists.

SDF militants work to the same objectives as IS terrorists. Russian drones and intelligence have not recorded any confrontations between IS and the third force, the SDF, the Russian general said.

READ MORE: Syrian troops cross Euphrates as they advance east of Deir ez-Zor (VIDEO)

The statement said that the siege of Raqqa by the SDF has been halted, apparently in response to the latest advances by Syrian government forces in Deir ez-Zor, which is located to the east from Raqqa along the Euphrates River.

The central parts of the former ISIL capital, which account for roughly 25 percent of the city, remain under full control of the terrorists, Konashenkov remarked.

According to the statement, in the last 24 hours Syrian government troops continued their offensive operation to destroy the last IS bridgehead near the city of Deir ez-Zor, the provincial capital. Troops led by Syrian Army General Suheil al-Hassan liberated around 16 sq km of territory and...

Trip Recap: Seattle Southside "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Thanks to the companies linked to below for hosting us on this trip.

Last weekend we took a quick mini-vacay to the Seattle Southside. To be honest, I've never really considered that area as a vacation destination--unless you count starting a vacation by leaving from SeaTac Airport. But when we were invited to come stay for the weekend and explore, we couldn't turn down an excuse for a little getaway. And we had a blast! I was impressed with how many fun, family-friendly activities are there. Plus it was a nice, affordable launch pad for visiting the overall region, and less hectic than staying in downtown Seattle. In addition to our planned activities, we were able to meet our new nephew Seth (who was just born last month), see Ben's parents, and buy a few things from IKEA (Spokane doesn't have one yet). Worked out perfect!

Trip to the Seattle Southside

We stayed at the Marriott Courtyard right by Southcenter Mall. It was a convenient location, clean and modern inside, and their hotel breakfast was really good...instead of a continental buffet, they had made-to-order French toast, eggs and bacon, avocado toast, etc., plus Starbucks drinks. It was also located right by iFly, an indoor skydiving place that Ben has wanted to try. We didn't do it this time because of Ian (you have to be at least three), but maybe in the future!

Jumping on hotel beds

Our first morning there, we visited the Des Moines Farmer's Market, which is right on the harbor. Supposedly there's a great view of Mt. Rainier, but it was still really smoky in the air from all the fires in the Northwest so we couldn't see the mountain at all (thankfully it's rained since then and the air is MUCH clearer now). The farmer's market was really cute and reminded me a lot of the one in Edmonds, where we used to live: a charming waterfront community market with seasonal local crops, inexpensive bouquets of fresh flowers, and yummy food trucks. We got some hot kettle corn and a twice baked almond croissant, and I ogled the gorgeous dahlias.

Police arrest Lidl till operative in London Tube bomb investigation "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Police have confirmed that an employee of Lidl has been arrested in the ongoing investigation into the London Tube bomb attack. Initially we thought it was a lone wolf but now it transpires that the bomber may have had assistance, namely the provision of disposable bags at a discounted price of 5p, said the Chief Inspector heading up the enquiry.

Concerns have been raised about the ability of the disposable Lidl bags to withstand an explosion, with experts noting that currently no British Army ordnance is transported in Lidl bags for that very reason. The new Lidl Bag for Life, at 9p, in contrast, is widely recognised as being strong enough for eggs and a standard size bag of potatoes.

It is understood that the man who sold the bag also asked the bomber if he wanted cash back. Money laundering is a vital element of the terrorist process, so its likely hell be charged with that offence too, said the detective.

The Smithsonian Design Museum Digitizes 200,000 Objects, Giving You Access to 3,000 Years of Design Innovation & History "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

John Lennon poster by Richard Avedon

When we think of design, each of us thinks of it in our own way, focusing on our own interests: illustration, fashion, architecture, interfaces, manufacturing, or any of a vast number of sub-disciplines besides. Those of us who have paid a visit to Cooper Hewitt, also known as the Smithsonian Design Museum, have a sense of just how much human innovation, and even human history, that term can encompass. Now, thanks to an ambitious digitization project that has so far put 200,000 items (or 92 percent of the museum's collection) online, you can experience that realization virtually.

Concept car designed by William McBride

The video below explains the system, an impressive feat of design in and of itself, with which Cooper Hewitt made this possible. "In collaboration with the Smithsonians Digitization Program Office, the mass digitization project transformed a physical object (2-D or 3-D) from the shelf to a virtual object in one continuous process," says its about page. "At its peak, the project had four photographic set ups in simultaneous operation, allowing each to handle a certain size, range and type of object, from minute buttons to large posters and furniture. A key to the projects success was having a completely barcoded collection, which dramatically increased efficiency and allowed all object information to be automatically linked to each image."

Massive 6.2 Magnitude Earthquakes Has Hit Japan Coast Near Fukushima "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Planet Earth has been experiencing some devastating natural disasters this year. 2017 will be famous for having multiple once in every 500 years storms. Now that you just thought they were over, we are still experiencing devastation from natural disasters.

When I say natural disasters it is probably a given that this is a chain reaction from the tremendous environmental disturbances weve caused. We have essentially ruined our atmosphere, and it looks like were about to start paying for it. This year south Texas was devastated by Hurricane Harvey, Southern florida and the east coast were destroyed by Hurricane Irma, and we are already awaiting Hurricane Maria. Aside from the three record setting hurricanes weve just endured, Japan has been hit by a detrimental earthquake.

The earthquake occurred on the South East of Kamaishi at about 2:37 AM. It was measured as a 10 KM 6.2 magnitude earthquake. Japan has already been devastated by a horrendous earthquake in 2011. Four people died and dozens were injured due to the landslides, tsunamis, and fires.

While no details have yet been released regarding the damages of the horrendous 6.2 earthquake we know it cant be good. Not to mention the fact that this was the third major earthquake in just a 24 hour period. All we can say right now is keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers and send as many good vibrations as possible.

Our hearts go out to those affected.

Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- https://goo.gl/kx2yzW Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good morning, Im still reporting on: Nancy Pelosi Run Off Stage at Press Conference, 1795 Synopsis: Yesterday in San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi was shouted down by the very dreamers she was there to have a press conference about urging passage of the Dream Act to protect the children of illegals from deportation. About 60 so-called Dreamers mounted the stage shouting, All of us or none of us, and Democrats deport. The raucous group managed to shout down all attempts to proceed with the carefully orchestrated event. After an hour of noisy chanting and speech-making on the part of the Dreamers, Pelosi and two Democrat colleagues gave up and left the venue through a back door. This demonstrates yet another step in the decline of civility in the democratic process only this time, it is being used against Democrats, instead by them against supporters of President Trump. Democrats have been crushing these American political traditions for several years now and this is the end result. Now new socialists, yearning to get their young faces on the nightly news are angling to replace the old socialists and modeling their bad behavior. Unless Democrats take an about face and start moving back towards bi-partisan governance and treating, yes, even Trump supporters with respect, the bonds of comity that have bound the Republic together will only disintegrate at an ever-faster pace fracturing the nation. This is exactly what our enemies want. And, unfortunately, our enemies are now amongst us. Democrats need to heed the lessons of history - just as in the French Revolution when the Republic descends into thuggery, the thugs will come for the Democrats first.

7 Werner Herzog Quotes to Let Her Know Youre a Wild Fuck Machine "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

So after weeks of duds and missed connections youre finally having a good date. You take her out to a decent restaurant, the conversation is flowing well, youre digging her, you think shes digging you, but how do you let her know that youve got the goods? Look no further than the words of the pussy professor himself, Werner Herzog! Here are the top seven existential contemplations from the Austrian filmmaker to show her exactly what kind of animal you can be in the bedroom!

The trees here are in misery, and the birds are in misery. I dont think they sing. They just screech in pain.

  • Subtext: What do you say we get out of here and head on over to my place? Women respond to confidence, so you know what? Just put it out there! Use this quote to highlight the ominous dread inherit in your environment and then maybe chime in with, Hey, I got some killer coffee back at my apartment.

Look into the eyes of a chicken and you will see real stupidity. It is a kind of bottomless stupidity, a fiendish stupidity. They are the most horrifying, cannibalistic, and nightmarish creatures in the world.

  • This one great because it can come up organically while browsing the menu, and itll have her thinking Wow, if he sees all of that in a chicken, imagine how creative he is sexually!

Do you not then hear this horrible scream all around you that people usually call silence.

  • Definitely wait till the check arrives before you drop this leg spreader because chances are youre going to get pulled into the nearest available coat closet for god knows how long.

Related: Fun Date Night Ideas Youll Never Experience Because You Date Band Dudes

I believe the common denominator of the universe is not harmony, but chaos, hostility and murder.

  • Nothing like a little pseudo-Nietzschean pessimism to let her know youre ready to go all night!

The universe is monstrously indifferent to the presence of man.

  • In other words, Hey baby, no one else is watching, its just you and me spinning around on a marble in a cold indifferent vacuum, so lets do this!...

Psychiatry Ignores an Elephant in the Room "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Large cohort studies of people with a first-episode psychosis provide a unique opportunity for finding out why so many young people with schizophrenia spectrum disorders die at a young age. However, it seems that those psychiatrists who have access to the mortality data generally do not want the facts to come out. In published cohort studies, there is virtually always too little information or no information at all about the causes of death.

In 2012, Hegelstad et al. published 10-year follow-up data for 281 patients with a first-episode psychosis (the TIPS study). 1 Although their average age at entry into the study was only 29 years, 49 patients (17%) had died in less than 10 years. The authors detailed article was about recovery and symptom scores and they took no interest in all these deaths, which appeared in a flowchart of patients lost to follow-up and were not commented upon anywhere in their paper. In the text, however, they mentioned only 28 deaths (11%), so it is difficult to know how many died.

On March 5th 2017, I wrote to the first author: In your interesting study from 2012, Long-Term Follow-Up of the TIPS Early Detection in Psychosis Study: Effects on 10-Year Outcome, 28 patients died of 281. Do you have the causes of death, which would be very interesting to know about? I noticed that most patients were still on antipsychotics 10 years after they started (table 2). I consider this very frightening, e.g. around half of them will have tardive dyskinesia (which is often masked by ongoing treatment) and many, if not all, will have developed permanent brain damage at this point, to mention just two of the important harms of long-term treatment. In contrast, only 17% of patients in Lappland were still on antipsychotics 5 years after their first episode (compared to 75% in Stockholm).

I sent a reminder ten days later and was told I would get an answer shortly. On May 10th, I wrote again: It is now another two months. You did an important study and it is important for the world to know what 10% of your very young patients died from in just 10 years. It is a frightening death rate. Do we need to file a Freedom of Information request to get this information?

Hegelstad replied that, We are preparing a manuscript detailing the information you are asking for. It will be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal. When published the information will be readily available to all.

The preparation of the manuscript and its publication were very fast. Already in June, the paper was out, in World Psychiatry.2 With this record speed, I wondered what the peer r...

College Students Fast Travel Ability Unlocked by Bottle of Tequila "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

GAINESVILLE, Fla. UF sophomore Michelle Stevens claims to have fast traveled to her dorm room after downing a bottle of Se Tiene Especial Tequila, following a long night of heavy drinking at a Theta-Alpha-Epsilon frat party last night.

Upon finishing the drink, Stevens was supposedly wrapped in darkness, only to wake up on her carpeted floor having lost all her gear except for his underwear 10 hours later.

According to those close to her, Stevens says her fast travel ability can bring her home from any on-campus party, be it a frat or in a neighboring dorm.

Ive spent my whole life walking home from events, but now its like, wow I can get home whenever I want, you know? said Stevens in an interview.  I would have stopped doing it if the parties werent on the other side of the campus. All the backtracking is just tedious.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

Despite the clear gains of her new found ability, Stevens emphasized some drawbacks.

The Tequila bottle acts as a one-time-use consumable, so youll need to stock up if you want to do this regularly. You also cant carry any cash because apparently it costs all your money, she complained to the press.

Despite the glowing reviews from Stevens, sources close to the friendship state that Stevens roommate Marla Kraushaar is not as fond of the new fast travel ability.

As soon as she learned to black out, she seems to have lost the patience of walking home regularly. Now every night out ends with a bottle of Tequila and us having to carry her home while she shou...

Depressed David Blaine to Eat Never-Ending Breadsticks For Three Days at Untelevised Private Event "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

NEW YORK In a performance challenging the very definition of the word event, David Blaine will continually eat Olive Garden breadsticks for three days straight starting this coming Friday, according to a leaked schedule for the famed magician.

Blaine is no stranger to endurance challenges, having once famously encased himself in a giant glass tank of water for seven days. However, the Olive Garden challenge marks the first time Blaine has failed to promote one of his stunts in any way, shape, or form. Sources close to the illusionist confirmed the three-day ordeal will not even be recorded.

I have to admit, Im not 100 percent clear on the game plan here, admitted befuddled Blaine publicist Carol Rogers. He had to buy his own franchise and fully staff it to have a 24-hour store. Hes hemorrhaging money on this. Anytime I ask him about specifics, he just shrugs and says, Whatever. Im kinda worried about the guy.

According to rules devised by Blaine himself, he will have no more than five minutes to eat each individual breadstick. Once he has picked up a breadstick, it may not leave his hand until consumed, and once completed, he will have only 10 seconds to pick up another. Over the three-day breadstick marathon, Blaine will be given only one 40-minute bathroom break, and one opportunity to browse the dessert menu for 15 minutes.

Many in Blaines inner circle disapprove of the stunt, perhaps none more vocally than his physician, Dr. Craig Carter.

Nutritionally speaking, this will be the most dangerous thing David has ever attempted. I begged him to do that thing where he eats a wine glass as well to balance out all the carbs, but he wont listen, said Carter in a phone interview. Also, its kind of boring. Who wants to watch a guy eat bread? Like, whats even the payoff here? I seriously dont get it.

Not everyone close to Blaine has been so critical, however. No lights, no cameras, none of the pretences that cloud our experience. The performance will exist purely in the moment. Well done sir, tweeted longtime frie...

3 Unique Tips for Finding Your Way Out of the Wilderness "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Wilderness survival is a vast subject that few people ever truly master. Even certain subsets of this subject can be daunting. Fortunately, there are plenty of online resources and books that can help. Its a super popular subject that has been discussed at length by countless websites and authors, including yours truly.

But throughout my time researching this subject over the years, Ive stumbled on a few survival tips that dont seem to be mentioned very often. Perhaps their usefulness is a little too narrow, or there are better options that are little more versatile and applicable in more situations. However, Ive always felt that there is no survival tip that is too niche, so to speak. I like to learn everything, even if some of that knowledge is only useful in rare circumstances. In that spirit, Ive come up with a three survival tips on the subject of navigating your way out of the wilderness, that I dont think get mentioned often enough.

Pay Attention To The Animals

We all know that certain animals can sense magnetic fields, and use that ability to navigate. What most people dont realize is that observing some of these animals can help you figure out which way is north or south. If youre ever lost in the forests of North America or Europe, pay attention to any deer you might run across. They almost always face magnetic north or south when theyre grazing.

Follow The Water

With advances in modern infrastructure, its a lot easier for a community to spring up where there is no water. However, most towns and cities that are around today were built a long time ago, when they absolutely needed to be near water sources. For that reason, one of the best ways to find civilization is to simply follow any rivers or streams you run across. Obviously, doing this doesnt guarantee that youll find civilization, but if you dont know which direction the nearest community is, then following a river gives you the best odds of getting out of the wilderness. Plus, youll be able to stay hydrated throughout the journey.

Look For Light Pollution

One of the most noticeable side effects of modern civilization is the abundance of light it produces. Even at night, most communities have plenty of streetlights running until dawn. Depending on the size of these communities and how far away they are, you should be able to see the light they produce even if you cant see the town itself. When it gets dark, try to f...

China Begins Rounding Up And Detaining Bitcoin Executives "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

China has begun rounding up and detaining Bitcoin executives who run exchanges in the country, amid a huge crackdown against cryptocurrencies. 

As the war on Bitcoin continues, Chinese media is reporting that executives who operate Bitcoin exchanges are being told they are not allowed to leave Beijing whilst the government conducts an investigation.

A number of informed sources say the executives of special currency trading platforms are not allowed to leave Beijing to cooperate with the investigation. In accordance with regulatory requirements, trading platform shareholders, the actual controller, executives and financial executives need to fully cooperate with the relevant work in the clean-up period in Beijing.

Trustnodes.com reports: Australias Financial Review (AFR) says the above has been confirmed with them by a source close to one of the biggest exchanges, Huobi, which told them its founder, Li Lin, was required to report to the authorities and cooperate with their work at any time.

The draconian measure is undertaken following a decision by Chinas Communist Party to close down all crypto exchanges, with trading volumes in the country dropping considerably.

Chinese trading volumes now account for only around 5% 10% of bitcoins or ethereums global trading volumes. With price there significantly lower. Leading CoinMarketCap to exclude them from calculations of average prices.

Want To Improve Your Memory Or Ability To Concentrate? Lutein In Avocados Shown To Boost Eye And Brain Health "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Russel Davis; Natural News

Eating avocados may help boost eye health, memory and attention, a study published in Nutrients revealed.

A team of researchers at the Tufts Universitys Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging noted that these beneficial effects were largely in part to the fruits high lutein levels. According to the experts, both the eyes and the brain selectively incorporate the essential carotenoid.

To carry out the study, the research team examined 20 healthy men and women who were randomly assigned to eat one avocado or either one cup of potatoes or chickpeas daily for six months. The avocado provided a daily lutein dose of about 0.5 mg.


The scientists said that daily avocado consumption for six months resulted in a significant increase in lutein levels in plasma and in the macular of the eyes at about 25 percent, compared with only 15 percent in those who ate either potatoes or chickpeas.

Likewise, the scientists also found that only the participants in the avocado group exhibited a marked increase macular pigment density after six months. According to the research team, this effect may serve as a biomarker for lutein levels in the brain.

7 Signs You're A Witch And Don't Realize It "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Youve been called a witch and arent sure whether you should be offended or throw the biggest party youve ever had.

To you, a witch is very clear cut: either you rock a sparkly dress and youre a good witch or youre lying dead under a house and youre a bad witch.

I refuse to subscribe to a binary definition of a witch and am suggesting that you may be one, not fit into either category and not even know youre a witch.

Witches dont have to create concoctions with eye of newt, go to full moon soirees or drop knowledge from a crystal ball. As a witch, you live life as you are and refuse to subscribe to the box society would like to paint you into.


Here are some signs to help you know if you should keep a look out for your Hogwarts acceptance letter:

1. Youre Not the Statue of Liberty

You dont need to take in the tired, the homeless, the hungry, the poor, the tired masses. You dont need the friends who dont call you back or EVER ask how youre doing.

You dont need the ones who act like they want to hang out, but they really want a free haircut or a snippet of your legal expertise.

The Power of Total Isolation: Why We Hate Being Alone "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Simple Capacity

Complete isolation breeds a kind of mental anguish rarely faced by our ancestors.

Are we even remotely aware of what happens inside our minds when we are completely physically and mentally isolated? Sensory deprivation tank, which were originally created in the 1950s to study human consciousness, may shed some light on the topic.


Isolation Chambers and Sensory Processing

A sensory deprivation tank, also called an isolation tank or float tank, consists of a dark and windowless box, which is big enough to hold an adult. The participant lies in a lukewarm saline solution, with no or minimal clothing. This saline solution creates a sensation of floating. It is almost impossible to see anything in the pitch-black darkness of the tank, even your own hand, in front of your face. Furthermore, the participant cannot sense any form of smell, taste or sound (except the sound made by one own self). The idea behind this is to block out any sensory stimulation in full measure. Fundamentally, a person loses the sense of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell in the tank.

BBC to mixnmatch old stories with new "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

updated, on the hour, every three yearsFollowing the success of its website, which takes visitors to old news items as if they were recent events, the BBC has decided to randomise all news coverage, with old events appearing alongside new.

The BBC believes in challenging itself, a spokesman said. The licence-fee payer deserves a service which is distinct from that offered by other news outlets CNN, Al Jazeera etc. One question we asked was : why does news have to be so new? Whats wrong with classic news?

The result is a sea-change in our style of reporting. If viewers or listeners just want to know about things which are happening now, they can switch to commercial radio or television. With the BBC they will hear about present events and past events at the same time. Were planning an exciting series of vox pop interviews about the sinking of the Titanic, followed by live coverage of its launch.

The possibilities are endless. The fall of Singapore, that cat being run over by a fire wagon, Jimmy Saviles OBE. Taking events out of sequence puts a completely fresh slant on what we mean by current affairs. Our guiding principle will be no hindsight. So, for example, coverage of every England football match since 1966 will be optimistic and dismissive of other nations.

Our racing tipsters are particularly excited about the prospect of getting it right occasionally. The next step will be reporting of future events. This might need a bigger licence fee.

Our Bodies Are Becoming Plastic "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Dr. Mercola; Mercola.com It was a sad day in October 2015 when researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) announced they had detected plastic litter on the surface of Arctic waters. [1] Greenland sharks and seabirds living in the area were already known to be eating the debris, [2] but the appearance of 31 pieces of floating debris in an otherwise largely pristine environment painted a disturbing picture of pollution problems that will only get worse if the amounts of litter entering the oceans arent reduced. With plastics now entering the farthest reaches of the globe, what does that mean for the environments where these pollutants are known to accumulate? Mismanaged waste is particularly problematic in China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines, which together make up the top five countries for plastic pollution. [3] In the U.S., one of the top waste-generating countries, littering is a major issue, especially in the form of single-use plastics, like soda bottles, drinking straws and potato chip bags. According to environmental advocacy group Ocean Conservancy, some plastic products persist for so long, even in salty ocean water, that theyll still be recognizable after 400 years. [4] However, an equally alarming problem is the plastics that do get broken down into tiny pieces. Microplastic particles, which are less than 5 millimeters long, are literally clouding the oceans in spots. Carried along with the oceans currents, swirling gyres of plastic smog [5] now cover about 40 percent of the worlds ocean surfaces. [6] Theyre being eaten by fish and other marine life that is well-known. But only recently did researchers take the logical next step to determine that its not only marine life ingesting plastic you probably are too. Read more

The Mysterious Voynich Manuscript, the 15th-Century Manuscript Written in a Language Linguists & Code-Breakers Have Never Been Able to Decipher "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

A 600-year-old manuscriptwritten in a script no one has ever decoded, filled with cryptic illustrations, its origins remaining to this day a mystery. Its not as satisfying a plot, say, of a National Treasure or Dan Brown thriller, certainly not as action-packed as pick-your-Indiana Jones. The Voynich Manuscript, named for the antiquarian who rediscovered it in 1912, has a much more hermetic nature, somewhat like the work of Henry Darger; it presents us with an inscrutably alien world, pieced together from hybridized motifs drawn from its contemporary surroundings.

Voynich is unique for having made up its own alphabet while also seeming to be in conversation with other familiar works of the period, such that it resembles an uncanny doppelganger of many a Medieval text. A comparatively long book at 234 pages, it roughly divides into seven sections, any of which might be found on the shelves of your average 1400s European readera fairly small and rarified group. Over time, Voynich enthusiasts have given each section a conventional name" for its dominant imagery: "botanical, astronomical, cosmological, zodiac, biological, pharmaceutical, and recipes.

Scholars can only speculate about these categories. The manuscript's origins and intent have baffled cryptologists since at least the 17th century, when, notes Vox, an alchemist described it as a certain riddle of the Sphinx. We can presume, judging by its illustrations, writes Reed Johnson at The New Yorker, that Voynich is a compendium of knowledge related to the natural world." But its illustrations range from the fanciful (legions of heavy-headed flowers that bear no relation to any earthly variety) to the bizarre (naked and possibly pregnant women, frolicking in what look like amusement-park waterslides from the fifteenth century).

Industry Insight: Want to Build Trust? Start with a Good Corrections Policy "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

The more corrections a news organization runs, the more likely I am to trust it.

In the still-insular culture of todays newsrooms, the number of corrections doesnt necessarily correlate to the number of mistakes made. But those that regularly run corrections, and in a manner thats prominent and transparent to readers, show a commitment to addressing mistakes and accountability.

If all you ever heard about the (New York Times) or AP or CNN or Fox were the corrections, youd think they were terrible, CNN Reliable Sources host Brian Stelter wrote on Twitter recently. Theyre not.

His comments came in the wake of CNN retracting a story about a Trump supporters ties to Russia and announcing the departure of several staff members (veteran journalists) who were involved in writing and editing it.

Trump-supporting websites seized on the admission to paint mainstream media coverage in general as fake news that is biased and unfair to the president.

Elad Nehorai, a Brooklyn writer who has contributed to the Guardian and HuffPost and blogs at PopChassid.com, took the opposite lesson.

The fact that they issue corrections is what makes them quality media! he wrote in response to Stelters point. Im looking forward to the day an extreme right site does the same.

Thats an obvious starting point for news organizations who want to combat the presidents attempts to undermine trust in the press with a fake news mantra, and those who hope or expect to rely on direct financial support from readers.

The first step in building community trust is to have an awesome corrections policy, and to follow it religiously. Craig Silverman, who used to publish the site Regret the Error and now leads Buzzfeeds coverage of the media, has been preaching this for years.

Silverman has been a leading voice about how to handle corrections as journalism has moved online and newsrooms have faced a whole set of new issues around the speed of coverage and the temptation to quietly make changes in an online story that was wrong without acknowledging that you made...

The name Nigel has all but disappeared according to statistics for new baby names in 2016.

There were at most two Nigels born last year, but there might not have been any (to be filed under statistically tricky when the numbers are this small).

But even if it was two, it was still one fewer than the three baby Elvises born in the UK last year.

A little more conversation, a little less racism.

I read because. "IndyWatch Feed Education"

I am sitting in a bookshop after work. In the bookshop cafe. Drinking tea. Writing. Reading.

I like to read. I enjoy both fiction and non-fiction. But in either form I enjoy the description of ideas and people. Reading challenges my mental paradigms, and helps me gather new ones, new thoughts, new ideas, perhaps layered upon and blended with the old.

Reading can be both public and private. Indeed, it has been said that reading, especially reading fiction, encourages empathy   that it is a kind of empathic technology.

I dont know if that is particularly true but I do know of the power of narrative transportation. Indeed, research been shown that millennials who were immersed in the Harry Potter narratives have been influenced in terms of empathy for the outsider. This has, apparently also affected their votes.

Now that is pretty powerful. As Neil Gaiman said: Fiction can show you a different world. It can take you somewhere youve never been. Once youve visited other worlds, like those who ate fairy fruit, you can never be entirely content with the world that you grew up in. And discontent is a good thing: people can modify and improve their worlds, leave them better, leave them different, if theyre discontented.

Reading thus becomes a conversation. Reading together can draw us together, as individuals and families and communities. Barack Obama, on meeting author Marilynne Robinson, commented: When I think about how I understand my role as citizen, setting aside being president, and the most important set of understandings that I bring to that position of citizen, the most important stuff Ive learned I think Ive learned from novels. It has to do with empathy. It has to do with being comfortable with the notion that the world is complicated and full of grays, but theres still truth there to be found, and that you have to strive for that and work for that. And the notion that its possible to connect with some[one] else even though theyre very different from you.

I think reading, and reading aloud as a family, has encouraged us...

No Ikea are not selling a toilet brush and calling it the Farage "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

But a quick search on the IKEA website and its actually a product called the BOLMEN:

Caitlin Moran on Fighting the Cowardice of Cynicism "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

When cynicism becomes the default language, playfulness and invention become impossible. Cynicism scours through a culture like bleach, wiping out millions of small, seedling ideas.


Caitlin Moran on Fighting the Cowardice of Cynicism

There is nothing quite so tragic as a young cynic, because it means the person has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing, Maya Angelou wrote in contemplating courage in the face of evil. In the decades since, cynicism has become a cultural currency as deadly as blood diamonds, as vacant of integrity and long-term payoff as Enron. Over the years, I have written about, spoken about, and even given a commencement address about the perilous laziness of cynicism and the ever-swelling urgency of not only resisting it but actively fighting it defiance which Leonard Bernstein considered an essential countercultural act of courage.

Today, as our social and political realities swirl into barely bearable maelstroms of complexity, making a retreat into self-protective cynicism increasingly tempting, such courage is all the harder and all the more heroic.

Thats what English writer Caitlin Moran examines in a stirring passage from How to Build a Girl (public library) a novel that quenches questions springing from the same source as her insightful memoir-of-sorts ...

8 Major Reasons Why You Should Never Mess With the Quiet One "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The people who do not say much often fall into the background noise. Sometimes we dont even realize they are there.

You see, the quiet person is the one who is filled with great ideas and listens to everything that is going on around them. While there is nothing wrong with being extroverted there are some downsides. Introverts or quiet people who like to stick to themselves are often misunderstood.

We make all kinds of incorrect assumptions about these people, and in many cases cast them off as less intelligent. Tons of people assume that quiet people are weak and submissive, but that is far from the truth. Quiet people are usually strong and creative.

Below you will find a list of reasons why you should never mess with a quiet person. While you may see them as an easy target to bully or mistreat they are not quite what they seem. If you piss off a quiet person you may be in for a world of hurt.

8 Reasons Why The Quiet Person Should Not Be Messed With:

1. Quiet people listen to everything.

They pay attention to everything. When you said you hated spiders last week they were listening. You may not have noticed them at all and yet now they have your fear in their hands. Quiet people listen to everything and think quite deeply. They wait until they have something good to say before speaking unlike the rest of the world.

2. Quiet people observe more than you do.

Quiet people pick up on body language more often than most. They can easily spot when someone is lying and when someone is being sincere. They are not as easy to deceive as you might think.

3. Quiet people are not weaker just because they are not loud.

Just because someone is not obnoxious and loud does not mean they will fall over when you push them. Quiet people can be strong when they need to be. You would be stupid for assuming otherwise.

4. Not all quiet people lack social skills.

Just because someone is quiet doesnt mean they are awkward when they speak. Most quiet people speak just fine and get along well with others. This world is a diverse one, remember that.

5. Quiet people will not tolerate being treated badly.

Just because someone doesnt talk much doesnt mean they are going to let you walk all over them. They will only take so much before fighting back. Besides, if you are treating someone badly jus...

7 Definitive Signs Your Third Eye is Opening "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Humans are extremely powerful creatures who possess special abilities that no other creature has. We are extremely energetic beings and by taking advantage of the massive energy you can change your entire life.

Humans are receptors for massive amounts of metaphysical energy. We have a primo vascular system in our bodies that transports and receives energy all the time. The most commonly known energy points in the body are the seven chakras.

The seven chakras are energetic receiving points throughout the body, and by taking advantage of them you can completely change your life. The sixth chakra, also known as the third eye chakra, is one of the most commonly referred to chakras. It can be found between the eyebrows and it encompases the pituitary gland. This chakra can lead you to enabling clairvoyance, telepathy, lucid dreaming, expanded imagination, and visualization. But first you have to get it to open.

Once you begin practicing mindfulness and meditation you will begin to open your third eye chakra. This enables you to be highly sensitive to other peoples energy and allows you to be very intuitive. People with an open third eye chakra have a revitalized and pure perception of life itself, and they fully understand the interconnectedness of all things.

Is your third eye chakra open? If it is, youll definitely relate to these 7 signs.

1. Pressure

Someone who is experiencing the opening of the third eye will experience a pressure in the center of the eyebrows or the skull. The sensation might feel like you have a cold or blocked sinuses, yet your nasal passages are clear.

2. Sudden Interest in Spirituality

People with an open third eye will also experience a random interest in spirituality. You suddenly are interested in the power of meditation and youve begun practicing mindfulness. All of this interest came out of nowhere and felt extremely natural.

3. Closed Eye Visuals

Closed eye visuals are seeing something while your eyes are closed. People who have an open third eye might see extraordinary light when their e...

Touring: wandering around checking out all the important stuff

Today started off with a quick drive through Chapel Hill and then we took off for Duke University in Durham. We wandered the campus and saw a bunch of beautiful old buildings and chapels. It was over 90 degrees in the sun, so I kept looking for shady areas. I also felt guilty because students were in classes and I got to spend the morning touring. After, we went to the gardens and had a golf cart drive us around for part of the way before we walked the rest on our own. So many great trees and flowers. Best part of the day!

We had lunch in the downtown area and shopped in old village stores. We later drove to Raleigh and checked out neighborhoods. A few cool ones and a few run down ones. Toured the state capitol building which was awesome. I think Charlotte is still the nicest of all the cities, but we have more to see tonight in Cary and downtown Raleigh. Off to meet a friends sister for dinner. A home cooked meal! No touring tonight but back at it tomorrow with Greensboro and Winston Salem. See ya soon. Enjoy the pics.

The Human Race is Quickly Evolving Into A New Kind of Human "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Life is a crazy roller coaster full of ups, downs, and twist and turns. Im sure everyone will agree with me when I say that life is confusing. But its okay because you are rapidly transforming into a new human being. Youre not supposed to understand it all.

We all try our hardest to understand life and make sense of things. There are so many questions to be answered about life like how we got here, what put us here, and what were truly supposed to be doing. However, life wouldnt be life if you understood it. Its weird how nothing makes sense at all, yet it all does at the same time.

Everything is interdependent on each other and if one component of life were to disappear it would bring all of society to a crumble. Its okay that you dont understand everything or anything about life itself. None of us really do, but thats because we are rapidly changing into new human beings. Even more rapidly than youd think.

We are constantly evolving as time goes on. Humans are forever growing and so is our universe. Everything continues and time goes on, and we are rapidly growing, changing, and essentially transforming as it all happens before our very eyes. If you stop to pay attention you would notice how fast everything changes even yourself. Everyday you live you are creating new memories of new experiences and forming new interests and opinions on everything you come into contact with. One memory possessing brain cell dies and another is born. We are constantly in a state of evolution.

Everything about life is a learning experience. None of us are placed on Earth knowing anything. We are informationless fragile creatures who grow everyday. Growing physically and mentally as we create new brain cells, memories, experiences, and feelings. Everyday we grow something is changing. When you wake up in the morning you are essentially a new person by the time you lay your head down at night. Every day is a learning experience and we grow more wisdom as we go throughout life.

Massive 6.2 Magnitude Earthquakes Has Hit Japan Coast Near Fukushima "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Planet Earth has been experiencing some devastating natural disasters this year. 2017 will be famous for having multiple once in every 500 years storms. Now that you just thought they were over, we are still experiencing devastation from natural disasters.

When I say natural disasters it is probably a given that this is a chain reaction from the tremendous environmental disturbances weve caused. We have essentially ruined our atmosphere, and it looks like were about to start paying for it. This year south Texas was devastated by Hurricane Harvey, Southern florida and the east coast were destroyed by Hurricane Irma, and we are already awaiting Hurricane Maria. Aside from the three record setting hurricanes weve just endured, Japan has been hit by a detrimental earthquake.

The earthquake occurred on the South East of Kamaishi at about 2:37 AM. It was measured as a 10 KM 6.2 magnitude earthquake. Japan has already been devastated by a horrendous earthquake in 2011. Four people died and dozens were injured due to the landslides, tsunamis, and fires.

While no details have yet been released regarding the damages of the horrendous 6.2 earthquake we know it cant be good. Not to mention the fact that this was the third major earthquake in just a 24 hour period. All we can say right now is keep Japan in your thoughts and prayers and send as many good vibrations as possible.

Our hearts go out to those affected.

CDC-funded Study Confirms Flu Shots Linked to Spontaneous Abortions "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

A CDC-funded medical study being published by the medical journal Vaccine has confirmed a shocking link between flu shots and spontaneous abortions in pregnant women.

The study was rejected by two previous medical journals before Vaccine agreed to publish it, further underscoring the tendency for medical journals to censor any science that doesnt agree with their pro-vaccine narratives.

A study published today in Vaccine suggests a strong association between receiving repeated doses of the seasonal influenza vaccine and miscarriage, writes CIDRAP, the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy.

A puzzling study of U.S. pregnancies found that women who had miscarriages between 2010 and 2012 were more likely to have had back-to-back annual flu shots that included protection against swine flu, reports Medical Xpress, a pro-vaccine news site that promotes vaccine industry interests.

What Can Sweet Fennel Oil Do for Your Health? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

What Is Sweet Fennel Oil?

Sweet fennel oil comes from crushed fennel seeds (Foeniculum vulgare). The plant, which is a part of the Apiaceae family including carrots or parsley, 1 has an herby, slightly spicy smell that resembles aniseed. It is native to Southern Europe, but is also now grown in parts of Northern Europe, Australia and North America. 2

Uses of Sweet Fennel Oil

Fennel was used in various ancient civilizations by the Egyptians for food and medicine and by the Chinese as a remedy for snake bites. During the Middle Ages, it was hung over doorways to drive away evil spirits.

In present times, sweet fennel oil is used mostly for medicinal purposes, such as killing parasitic worms and their spores in the intestines and excretory tracts and as a laxative with no side effects. It is also used for cosmetic purposes, especially as an ingredient in massage oils,3 perfumes, toothpastes and soaps.4

Composition of Sweet Fennel Oil

The chemicals found in sweet fennel oil include anethole, fenchone, estragole, a-pinene and -pinene, a-phellandrene and -phellandrene, a-Terpineol, myrcene, campfer and para-Cymol.5

Benefits of Sweet Fennel Oil

Sweet fennel oil acts as a stimulant for the nervous, digestive and excretory system and the endocrine and exocrine glands. It helps relieve dizziness, fatigue and exhaustion.6 Other benefits you can get from using sweet fennel oil include:

Carminative: eases indigestion and stomach pain

Diuretic: removes excess water, sodium, uric acid, bile salts and other toxic elements

Splenic: protects...

The Danger of Undiagnosed Sleep Apnea "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Lack of sleep and poor quality of sleep have been linked not only to absentmindedness and accidents, but also to serious health risks such as Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. More than ever, Americans are sleeping less and suffering because of it. Of the many reasons you may be sleep deprived, one of the most dangerous is sleep apnea.

If you are among the 22 million Americans suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea,1 your sleep may be punctuated by loud snoring, snorts or choking sounds that result from periodic disruptions to your breathing. Depending on the severity of your condition, these breath interruptions may occur just a few times or hundreds of times an hour. During these moments without breath, your brain and the rest of your body is literally being starved of oxygen.

Typically, normal breathing starts again as you gasp for air, resulting in the loud snorts or choking sounds often reported by your sleep partner. While most people consider snoring to be a normal occurrence, or a source of entertainment given the funny noises associated with it, sleep apnea is no laughing matter.

It is a serious health disorder that can be dangerous, and even life-threatening, when untreated. Notably, an estimated 80 percent moderate and severe obstructive sleep apnea cases go undiagnosed.2 If you think you or someone you love may be suffering from sleep apnea, take action today to pursue a diagnosis and treatment.

Empathy: Caring for Others Is Good for You "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Empathy, the ability to put yourself in someone elses shoes, so to speak, and understand their feelings and point of view, is a character trait that may benefit society and individuals in multiple ways. Empathy training has been found to reduce stress levels among medical students facing intense emotional encounters with patients, for example.1 While many parents try to instill empathetic qualities in their children, theres growing research that empathy has deep neurological roots in humans.

One of the first signs that empathy may be ingrained in all of us occurred in 1848, when a foreman named Phineas Gage working on a railroad construction project had an accident, which resulted in an iron rod going through his skull. He survived, but not without marked changes to his personality. His friends, family and physician described him as rude and inconsiderate following the accident.2

The Neurological Side of Empathy

The term empathy didnt come to be for another six decades after Gages accident, but what the accident essentially took from the foreman was the ability to feel empathy. In 1994, researchers were able to take measurements from Gages skull and use modern neuroimaging techniques to recreate the accident and determine its effects on his brain.

The damage involved both left and right prefrontal cortices in a pattern that, as confirmed by Gage's modern counterparts, causes a defect in rational decision making and the processing of emotion, researchers concluded.3

Injury was found to have occurred in the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vMPFC), which is one of 10 brain regions now known to be involved in empathy. In his book Zero Degrees of Empathy, Simon Baron-Cohen, professor of developmental psychology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, describes the complex neurological underpinnings of empathy, revealing the many ways our brains help us to care about other people:4

  • The medial frontal cortex has been linked to social cognition, which allows people to be part of a social group and process information about others...
