How One North Korean Nuclear-Armed Satellite Could Cripple The US Military And Lead To TEOTWAWKI "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

In the shadow of North Koreas third successful test of an ICBM on Nov. 29, Secretary of Defense Mattis described the North Korean missile threat as a research and development effort on their part to continue building ballistic missiles that can threaten everywhere in the world basically.

The Congressional EMP Commission warns North Korea may already pose a worldwide threat, not only by ICBM, but by satellites, two of which presently orbit over the United States and every country on Earth.

A single satellite, if nuclear-armed, detonated at high-altitude would generate an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) capable of blacking out power grids and life-sustaining critical infrastructure. It would pose an existential threat.

Yet, after massive intelligence failures grossly underestimating North Koreas nuclear capabilities, their biggest threat to the U.S. and the world remains unacknowledged nuclear EMP attack.


Wanted: Semi-auto handgun recommendations "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

After much thought I have decided to trade in my Walther PK380. I no longer have faith in it. Yes, it works but after the safety issue plus it is real finicky on what ammo you feed through it, I realized I do not want to shoot it. I lost confidence that it would do the job when I needed it to. I am now debating do I get another 380 just different manufacture or go for a different gun all together.

The things I really liked about the Walther were:
Weight- very light
Size- compact and easily...

Meet Mandy Harvey, the Deaf Singer Songwriter Who Performs Barefoot & Feels the Music Through Vibrations in the Ground "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Attractive young female singer-songwriters who shuck their shoes onstage sometimes find that this small attempt to pass themselves off as folksy and real has the opposite effect.

Mandy Harvey, however, is above reproach. The deaf singer-songwriter performs barefoot out of necessity, using her unclad soles to pick up on the vibrations of various instruments through the floorboards. It allows her to keep time and, in so doing, helps her to stay emotionally connected to the other musicians with whom shes performing, as she told NPR earlier this year, when she was one of 10 finalists on America's Got Talent.

Ill feel and concentrate on the drums through the floor, through my feet and then the bass through your chest, she said in an interview with Colorado Public Radio. And then if a saxophone player is next to me then it will be on my arm. So you just designate different parts of your body so you can concentrate on whos playing what and when.

Born with near perfect pitch and a connective tissue disorder that impaired her hearing, she was able to pursue her love of music by relying on hearing aids and lip reading until 18, when she finally lost her hearing for good, as a freshman Vocal Music Education major at Colorado State University.

While she has never heard fellow songbirds Adele or Taylor Swift, she has gotten over the stage fright that plagued her when she still retained so...


The Most Important Non-Superhero Comic Youve Never Heard Of "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Cover to Cerebus #49. The skewing of the title conveys the characters (drunk) point of view.

Cerebus the Aardvark turns 40 years old this month. He is not among the ranks of widely known comic book characters like Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, or any other superhero you can think of. He doesnt even have the mainstream crossover appeal of characters from successful non-superhero comics like the works of Alan Moore, The Sandman, or Saga. Yet his namesake series is as important to the medium of comics as those of any characters from the former category, and the characters from the latter would not exist without him. The influence of Cerebus runs deep through comic book art, business, and fandom, though its mainly dedicated fans of the medium who are familiar with it, and relatively few of them have actually read it.

This is because getting into Cerebus is an intimidating prospect. The series, written and drawn by Canadian cartoonist Dave Sim, ran exactly 300 issues, from December 1977 to March 2004. It is the longest single work from the same author in the history of the form, amounting at 6,000 pages, subsequently collected in 16 trade editions (which have appropriately been called phonebooks).

And this was accomplished without the aid of any publisher, major or minor. Sim blazed a trail for independent publishing in comics. Over the course of the 1980s, he and other creators rights advocates like Alan Moore and Art Spiegelman helped break the mold established by the Big Two, DC and Marvel. An evolution of the underground comix movement of the 60s, this in turn led to the boom in self-published and independently run comic series and graphic novels we see today. Sim is a strident opponent of the often draconian vagaries of copyright law, which are supported by major media companies zealously clinging to popular characters. Hes arranged for Cerebus ...

Louvre Abu Dhabi Claims They Own Leonardos Salvator Mundi "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

The question of ownership of the Salvator Mundi reputedly by Leonardo da Vinci appears to be as complicated as its provenance and authorship, as the Louvre Abu Dhabi is now claiming the painting was acquired by the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi for the museum itself.

The news comes after initial reports from the New York Times that the painting was purchased by Saudi Prince Bader bin Abdullah bin Mohammed bin Farhan al-Saud, which was followed by supposed news from WSJ that the real buyer was the heir apparent to the Saudi throne, Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The news syncs up with rumors in the commercial art world before the auction that Louvre Abu Dhabi was looking to purchase the painting, but why the reports of its buyer were misreported by major news outlets is certainly odd. Perhaps it was donated to the museum by a Saudi buyer? Like so much about this painting, its hard to tell the truth from fiction and marketing.

Promoted as an encyclopedic museum, Louvre Abu Dhabi open to much fanfare last month, and now they appear to have secured a work that is sure to attract tourists all over the world to the worlds most expensive painting.

The Long 1960s, Seen Through NYPD Surveillance Photographs "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view of Unlikely Historians (Photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

In a building across from city hall, through a stone faade, a metal detector, and a dimly lit colonnade under construction, a curious exhibition of photographs, video, and ephemera of political movements from 1960s and 70s New York occupies a single marbled room. The materials are the sort of thing one might find at Interference Archive, or in the Activist New York exhibition at the Museum of the City of New York: pictures of young people marching in denim and headbands, newsletters from groups like the Yippies, a flyer for an anti-war fundraiser, a bumper sticker advocating relief for Biafra. In fact, they were collected not for historical preservation, or by the activists of these movements, but by the New York City Police Department, and are part of the exhibition Unlikely Historians: Materials Collected by NYPD Surveillance Teams at the Municipal Archives.

The NYPDs surveillance dates back to the early 1900s, when the Italian Squad a collection of tough Italian American policemen was formed not only to disrupt organized crime and Black Hand extortion, but also to monitor anarchist activities. That squad grew into the Bureau of Special Services and Investigations, or BOSSI, which infamously infiltrated the Black Panthers and other progressive groups during the 1960s and 70s (the period given most attention in the exhibition). Not long after, Barbara Handschu and 15 others involved in political organizations filed a class action lawsuit against the NYPD, claiming that the infiltration, intelligence gathering, and punishment of political groups had a chilling effect on freedom of speech. They won: in 1985, the courts prohibited infiltration of meetings without specific information that the group was involved in crime, and also established a record-keeping procedure called the Handschu Authority, designed to leave a paper trail that would prevent future abuses of power.

Charming Caf Looks Like Its Straight Out of a Wes Anderson Film "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Wes Anderson Style Cafe Congreso

Wes Andersons fanciful film sets are one of many reasons people love his movies so much. His charming visual worlds feature peculiar architecture and kitsch interiors, cast in captivating color palettes. Weve covered the popularity of this signature aesthetic before, from themed Airbnb rentals, to a subreddit (turned Instagram) where people share Anderson-esque locations from across the globe. The most recent Andersonian discovery to catch our attention is the pastel-clad Caf Congresoa caf in the Philippines run by owner Joseph Malabanan.

Opened in the spring of 2017, the caf most closely resembles the set of The Grand Budapest Hotela pastel-hued retro-chic hotel, packed with delightful details. Similarly, Caf Congresos interior features cotton candy pink walls and seating, paired with teal green features such as the marble-topped coffee bar. Lux gold accents are found in raised wall frames and light fixtures, while the cafs twee jars and plates complete the look.

From the menu, Caf Congreso serves specialty coffee and matcha smoothies, as well as pizza, homemade ice cream, and of course pretty pastries that look as though theyve just arrived from Mendls bakery.

If you cant make it to the Philippines, you can follow Caf Congreso on Instagram for a daily dose of pastel pastry perfection.

The Songs of Trees: A Biologists Lyrical Ode to How Relationships Weave the Fabric of Life "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

We cannot step outside lifes songs. This music made us; it is our nature.

The Songs of Trees: A Biologists Lyrical Ode to How Relationships Weave the Fabric of Life

Trees speak to the mind, and tell us many things, and teach us many good lessons, an English gardener wrote in the seventeenth century. When we have learned how to listen to trees, Hermann Hesse rhapsodized two centuries later in his lyrical love letter to our arboreal companions, then the brevity and the quickness and the childlike hastiness of our thoughts achieve an incomparable joy.

For biologist David Haskell, the notion of listening to trees is neither metaphysical abstraction nor mere metaphor.

In The Songs of Trees: Stories from Natures Great Connectors (public library), Haskell proves himself to be the rare kind of scientist Rachel Carson was when long ago she pioneered a new cultural aesthetic of poetic prose about science, governed by her conviction that there can be no separate literature of science because the aim of science is to discover and illuminate truth, which is also the aim of literature.

It is in such lyrical prose and with an almost spiritual reverence for trees that Haskell illuminates his subject the masterful, magical way in which nature weaves the warp thread of individual organisms and the weft thread of relationships into the fabric of life.

Silibinin suppresses bladder cancer through down-regulation of actin cytoskeleton "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncotarget. 2017 Nov 3 ;8(54):92032-92042. Epub 2017 Sep 8. PMID: 29190895 Abstract Title:  Silibinin suppresses bladder cancer through down-regulation of actin cytoskeleton and PI3K/Akt signaling pathways. Abstract:  Silibinin is the major active constituent of silymarin, an extract of milk thistle seeds. Silibinin has been shown to have significant anti-cancer effects in a variety of malignancies. However, the molecular mechanisms of silibinin action in bladder cancer have not been studied extensively. In the present study, we found that silibinin (10M) significantly suppressed proliferation, migration, invasion and induced apoptosis of T24 and UM-UC-3 human bladder cancer cells. Silibinin down-regulated the actin cytoskeleton and phosphatidylinositide 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt signaling pathways in these cancer cell lines. These pathways were foundto crosstalk through RAS cascades. We found that silibinin suppressed levels of trimethylated histone H3 lysine 4 and acetylated H3 at the KRAS promoter. Furthermore, silibinin targets long non-coding RNA: HOTAIR and ZFAS1, which are known to play roles as oncogenic factors in various cancers. Thisstudy shows that silibinin exerts anti-cancer effects through down-regulation of actin cytoskeleton and PI3K/Akt pathways and thus suppresses bladder cancer growth and progression.

Vinny Lingham Points out new Bitcoin Investors Only Want Profit Rather Than Innovation "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It is evident everyone with a sense of adventure aims to buy Bitcoin right now. These colossal price gains throughout 2017 have not gone by unnoticed whatsoever. However, one also has to question the reason for buying Bitcoin now. Most people couldnt care less about this innovative technology or using it as a currency. Instead, they see this as a way to make a quick buck. Vinny Lingham is thinking along the same lines in this regard.

One could argue Bitcoin has some sort of identity crisis right now. More specifically, no one knows for sure how to label the worlds leading cryptocurrency. Its far from a currency, as the network simply cant process enough transactions per second. Nor is it a store of value per se, as the price is far too volatile. All of the questions need to be asked, yet very few new investors worry about these things. All they see is a vehicle to score quick profit and cash out when the time is right.

Vinny Lingham Worries About Bitcoins Future

For a project that was once touted for its technology, Bitcoin has certainly come a long way. Whether or not that is a good thing, remains to be determined. For speculators, Bitcoin is the next holy grail right now. Once people start to realize its nothing more than a volatile store of value, things will get very interesting. Its price volatility, high transaction fees, and lack of scaling are all pressing matters. Unfortunately, few people seem to care about these things. As Vinny Lingham points out, its all about profits first and foremost.

On paper, there is nothing wrong with this approach whatsoever. Early investors envisioned Bitcoin to become the next global payment solution. The past few years have shown that is not f...


Stuck up "IndyWatch Feed Comics"

Father gets home and dislikes what he sees, Once again a dick on the snowman they built, Inside he storms and scolds his child, Again I broke that dick so you ought to feel guilt. The child shudders as mom watches on, And father finally calms down, When he goes away the child remains, Perplexed with a veritable frown. Night comes along and the house is asleep, But outside there stirs some snow, Crunching under feet as something moves, In the dark a shape from the patio. It's not Santa, no, It's too early for that, It's not a squirrel, And it's not a cat. The figure picks up the snowman's broken dick, And rubs it together between two palms, Reattaching the phalus we can see who it is, Why it's none other than the household's mom. So that's the story of the horny snowman, Father does not know the plight, But it doesn't matter for it's that time of year, Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.



The True Size Maps Shows You the Real Size of Every Country (and Will Change Your Mental Picture of the World) "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

We all understand, on some level, that as adults we must go back and correct the oversimplifications we learned as schoolchildren. But for a sense of how large the scale of those quasi-truths, you must imagine the whole world: that is, you must imagine how you imagine the whole world, a mental picture probably taken straight from the map hung on the classroom wall. And the lines of that map came straight, in a sense, from the work of 16th-century cartographer Gerardus Mercator.

Though Mercator's world-mapping method came as a revolution, it has also given generation after generation after generation very much the wrong idea about how big the world's countries actually are. Mercator Projection, as Citymetric describes it, "re-imagines the earth as the surface of a cylinder. When laid out flat, its pleasingly rectangular, and its eastern and western edges line up neatly." But while "in reality, lines of longitude converge at the poles; on the map, they're parallel. As a result, the closer you get to the poles, the more distorted the map becomes, and the bigger things look relative to their actual size."

Hence the need for such re-imaginings of the world map as The True Size, "a website that lets you compare the size of any nation or US state to other land masses, by allowing you to move them around to anywhere else on the map." Just search for any country in the box in the map's upper-left corner, and that country's borders will appear highlighted in color. When you click and drag those borders to another part of the world, specifically a part of the world at a different latitude, you'll notice that the shape of the dragged country seems to deform.

But that appearance of distortion is only relative to the shapes and...


The Next Step Towards Artificial General Intelligence StarCraft II "IndyWatch Feed Education"

A combination of two behemoths.

Im working through my own self-created Artificial Intelligence Masters Degree. The creations which come out of DeepMind fascinate me. When they drop a mixtape with one of the biggest names in gaming in order to push Artificial Intelligence (AI) research forward, I listen to it.

Before we get into the specifics of this collaboration, a quick backstory of the history of AI and gaming.

AlphaGo shocked the world of Go by introducing moves which went against hundreds of years of game-playing strategy while defeating several world champions. DeepBlue did the same for chess in 1997, defeating then world champion Gary Kasparov.

A computer beat a world champion at chess in 1997, why did it take until 2016 to conquer the game of Go? And why StarCraft II now?

Let me shed a little light on the situation.

After 4 moves (2 moves for white and 2 moves for black) in chess, the number of possible board combinations is 8,902. In total, there are more possible board combinations than there are electrons in the observable universe. But the total number of sensible moves (such as, not needlessly sacrificing a Queen to a pawn) in chess is a little lower, in the order of ten duodecillion or 10 followed by 40 zeros.


For 1997s fastest supercomputer to calculate the exact winning set of moves for every possible chess board layout (end game) would take, the sun wouldve engulfed Earth several times over. Obviously, a brute force approach like this wasnt feasible.

How did Deep Blue do it?

Deep Blue used a selective system which would assess the state of the board before choosing a certain sequence of moves to explore. Moves which didnt maximize the probability of success were eliminated.

This selection strategy combined with parallel processing allowed Deep Blue to calculate 60 billion possible moves within three minutes, the time allowed for each players move in classical chess.

This kind of power led Kasparov to accuse IBM of cheating after his dethroning.

Why did Go take almost another two decades to conquer?

Without rules, lets compare the two game boards. As you can you see, the chess board looks fancy with its colored squares but the Go board has five times more square...


Man who cemented microwave to head appointed new Brexit Minister "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Amid government concerns that David Davis approach to Brexit was growing repetitive and stale, Teresa May has announced that she will be replacing him with the man in Wolverhampton who cemented a microwave to his own head, in an attempt to inject some fresh and creative action into the calamitous balls-up of Brexit.

Ive tried my best to make this thing as farcical as possible, but it just hasnt been enough said Davis, confirming his resignation, so to really bring this unholy monstrosity of Brexit to the correct level of ineptitude, I acknowledge that the person we really need in charge is someone deranged enough to cement their vital body parts to everyday household appliances just for the hell of it.

Prime Minister, Teresa May, has said that she hopes that the appointment of the new Minister will properly reflect the governments intentions for the Brexit process. This man has the precise mix of incompetence, insanity and willingness to self-harm that exactly sums up what Brexit entails, said the Prime Minister. Because Brexit means Cementing A Microwave To Your Own Fucking Head.

Organizing GraphQL Mutations "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Cleaning up the CRUD

The Great Divide in GraphQL schemas runs between Queries and Mutations. A query method reads data from a datasource, such as a SQL database or file system or even a remote service. Whereas queries can be executed concurrently, mutations cannot.

Mutations have to execute sequentially because the next mutation operation may be dependent on data stored or updated by the previous mutation. For instance, a record has to be created before it can be updated. Therefore, mutations have to execute sequentially. This is why queries and mutations have their own namespace in GraphQL.

Queries are the R in CRUD (Create, Read, Update, & Delete). The code in this article builds off of a Launchpad example. In the Launchpad code, there is a query defined that will return an Authors Posts, given an author ID. Ive extended this example once already on my post about testing GraphQL interfaces. In that post I added Books to the mix, and here Ill extend that idea.

Author Posts

Mutations are the CUD in CRUD. The Launchpad example linked above has an upvotePost mutation that bumps up the vote count (an update operation) for a Post.

Mutation: {
upvotePost: (_, { postId }) => {
const post = find(posts, { id: postId });
if (!post) {
throw new Error(`Couldn't find post with id ${postId}`);
post.votes += 1;
return post;

To implement down vote also, I simply create a similar downvotePost mutation:

Mutation: {
  downvotePost: (_, { postId }) => {
const post = find(posts, { id: postId });
if (!post) {
throw new Error(`Couldn't find post with id ${postId}`);
post.votes -= 1;
return post;

This is not exactly a DRY way of doing it. The body of the logic could be put into one external function with a parameter to increment the vote up or down.

Also, I would like to get rid of the upvotePost and downvotePost naming and instead rely on a context, like Post.upvote() and Post.downvote(). That can be done by having the Mutation method return a set of operations that affect a given Post.

PostOps is a type defined as:

type PostOps {
upvote(postId: Int!): Post

Hemp seed may be a valuable source of hypotensive peptides. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Agric Food Chem. 2017 Dec 6 ;65(48):10482-10488. Epub 2017 Nov 17. PMID: 29112398 Abstract Title:  New ACE-Inhibitory Peptides from Hemp Seed (Cannabis sativa L.) Proteins. Abstract:  A hemp seed protein isolate, prepared from defatted hemp seed meals by alkaline solubilization/acid precipitation, was subjected to extensive chemical hydrolysis under acid conditions (6 M HCl). The resulting hydrolysate was fractionated by semipreparative RP-HPLC, and the purified fractions were tested as inhibitors of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). Mono- and bidimensional NMR experiments and LC-MS analyses led to the identification of four potentially bioactive peptides, i.e. GVLY, IEE, LGV, and RVR. They were prepared by solid-phase synthesis, and tested for ACE-inhibitory activity. The IC50 values were GVLY 16 1.5 M, LGV 145 13 M, and RVR 526 33 M, confirming that hemp seed may be a valuable source of hypotensive peptides.

Vets Who Receive Legal Aid Show Improved Mental Health "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From Yale News: A new study shows that veterans who receive legal help with housing, benefits, and consumer or personal matters have increased income, fewer problems finding housing, and better mental health.

The study, published Dec. 4 in the journal Health Affairs, followed for a year the status of 148 Connecticut and New York veterans who received help from legal non-profit groups embedded with medical teams at VA offices, pairings known as medical-legal partnerships.

We found a reduction of hostility, anxiety, and paranoia as well as improvement in income and fewer days homeless among those who received help from medical-legal partnerships, said Jack Tsai, lead author, associate professor of psychiatry at Yale and core investigator at VA New England MIRECC. You can target one life domain, and the benefits spill over to others as well.'

Government Acquires IMDb to Replace Online National Sex Offender Registry "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of Justice announced today it would acquire the popular entertainment database in order to turn it into the new online National Sex Offender Registry.

Registering sex offenders is an important but incredibly resource-consuming task, explained project supervisor Bill Reznik.

I was explaining to the new guys how you need to create public profiles for the offenders which have to include their pictures, physical characteristics, and a list of their crimes when it hit me Oh, I am just describing, Reznik said while glancing somberly at a poster of American Beauty, his previously-favorite movie. Buying the site saved us thousands of man-hours and millions of dollars.

Plus were the first ever government website to feature a trivia section, he added.

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

Reznik went on to explain how the government was easily able to incorporate their new acquisition.

IMDb already has all the background information we needed on like 90% of all high-profile sex offenders. And, lets be honest, most of the future ones, too, Reznik added with a smile as empty as the flask on his desk. With a few simple tweaks, it could easily become the most accurate sex offender registry system in the world.

Under the management of the U.S. Department of Justice, titles like Actor etc. on IMDb profiles of convicted offenders will be replaced by the more accurate Rapist, Groper, or Molester. The Known For section listing the most famous movies the offender was involved with will also undergo changes and now feature all of their crimes along with a forum section for users to argue about whether or not they should feel guilty while watching their work.

Additionally, the movie pages themselves will switch to a new rating system, classifying movies either as RBA for Ruined By Ab...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Trading The Correction "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

It is Friday morning and we are about to get things moving for the final session of the week in the bitcoin price. Exactly whats going to happen today is very much up in the air. Things really took off during the late session on Thursday but, subsequent to the run, seemed to take a bit of a step back and we saw price correct back down towards current levels in and around 14,800.

Whether this correction has bottomed out remains to be seen but all we can do is make sure that, whatever happens next, we have the levels in place that can take advantage of it.

So, with all that said, lets get our strategy outlined for today and see what we can do as far as drawing a profit from the market is concerned.

As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets according to the rules of our intraday strategy.

The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart and it has our range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 14622 and resistance to the upside at 15351.

Thats a pretty wide range and normally would be enough to trade intrarange but, for today at least, we are going to stick to breakout, purely based on the action we have seen over the last 24 hours.

So, if we see price break above resistance, we will enter long towards an immediate upside target of 15400.

Conversely, a close below support will have us in short towards a downside target of 14550.

Lets see how things play out.

Hemp seed soft capsules ameliorated constipation by increasing colonic secretion. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  World J Gastroenterol. 2017 Nov 14 ;23(42):7563-7571. PMID: 29204056 Abstract Title:  Effects of Hemp seed soft capsule on colonic ion transport in rats. Abstract:  AIM: To investigate the effect of Hemp seed soft capsule (HSCC) on colonic ion transport and its related mechanisms in constipation rats.METHODS: Sprague-Dawley male rats were randomly divided into three groups: normal group, constipation group and HSSC group. Rats in the constipation and HSSC groups were administrated loperamide 3 mg/kg per day orally for 12 d to induce the constipation model. Then, the HSSC group was given HSSC 0.126 g/kg per day by gavage for 7 d. The normal and constipation groups were treated with distilled water. After the treatment, the fecal wet weight and water content were measured. The basal short-circuit current (Isc) and resistance were measured by an Ussing Chamber. Besides the in vivo drug delivery experiment above, an in vitro drug application experiment was also conducted. The accumulative concentrations of HSSC (0.1 mg/mL, 0.5 mg/mL, 1.0 mg/mL, 2.5 mg/mL, 5.0 mg/mL, 10.0 mg/mL and 25.0 mg/mL) were added to the normal isolated colonic mucosa and the Isc was recorded. Further, after the application of either ion (Cl- or HCO3-) substitution, ion channel-related inhibitor (N-phenylanthranilic acid, glybenclamide, 4,4-diisothiocyano-2,2-stilbenedisulfonic acid or bumetanide) or neural pathway inhibitor [tetrodotoxin (TTX), atropine, or hexamethonium], the Isc induced by HSSC was also measured.RESULTS: In the constipation group, the fecal wet weight and the water content were decreased in comparison with the normal group (P

Immunotoxicity of bisphenol S and F are similar to that of bisphenol A during zebrafish early development. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Chemosphere. 2017 Nov 23 ;194:1-8. Epub 2017 Nov 23. PMID: 29195089 Abstract Title:  Immunotoxicity of bisphenol S and F are similar to that of bisphenol A during zebrafish early development. Abstract:  Bisphenol S (BPS) and bisphenol F (BPF) have been increasingly used as alternatives to bisphenol A (BPA) owing to health concerns. The present study aims to evaluate the impact of these two BPA analogs on oxidative stress and the immune system during zebrafish embryonic and larval development. Environmentally relevant levels of BPS and BPF exposure could increase reactive oxygen species (ROS) content, nitric oxide (NO) content, nitric oxide synthase (NOS) activity, and the expression of immunity-related genes in concentration dependent manners during the early developmental stages in zebrafish. At a concentration of 100 g/L, BPS and BPF showed similar effects on the immune toxicity of zebrafish as that of BPA. Moreover, BPS and BPF induced both er and nf-b expression, and antagonists of estrogen receptor and NF-B blocked the effects on immunity-related gene expression, providing evidence that the two pathways mediate the actions of BPS and BPF on fish immune response and functions. Thus we conclude that the presence of BPS and BPF in the environment, similar to BPA, may also pose risks to ecosystem and human health and cannot be widely used without limitations and precautions.

Subchronic BPS exposure could affect liver function in mice by inducing oxidative damage. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Regul Toxicol Pharmacol. 2017 Dec 2 ;92:138-144. Epub 2017 Dec 2. PMID: 29199064 Abstract Title:  Subchronic bisphenol S exposure affects liver function in mice involving oxidative damage. Abstract:  Bisphenol S (BPS) has been widely used in the manufacturing industry as a substitute for bisphenol A (BPA). Emerging evidences, mostly from in vitro studies, suggest that BPS may exert a variety of toxicological effects and have the potential to induce oxidative stress. Nevertheless, few data are available for the in vivo effects of BPS on liver, an important target of drug toxicity. For the first time, our study systematically investigated the effects of BPS at a wide range of doses on liver function in mice upon oral administration. We found that treatment with 5000 g/kg BPS for 8 weeks resulted in liver injury with increased plasma levels of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase and total bilirubin, as well as defects in hepatic morphology. Moreover, such exposure to BPS induced oxidative stress in the liver of mice by decreasing activitiesof antioxidant enzymes, and increasing lipid peroxidation level and expression of two biomarker genes, HO-1 and GADD45B. No significant changes were observed for treatment with lower doses (5-500 g/kg) or shorter duration (4 weeks). In conclusion, subchronic BPS exposure could affect liver function in mice by inducing oxidative damage, indicating that BPS may be not an absolutely safe alternative to BPA.

6 Benefits of Yoga for Sleep Deprivation "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Yoga is not only good for strength and flexibility, but Lowenna Waters says that it also benefits sleep deprivation.

It's a well known fact that sleep disorders such as insomnia are endemic in our stress-filled, caffeine-driven contemporary lifestyles. In a recent study, it was shown that Britons are the world's most 'sleep deprived' people, with 37 per cent of the population reporting that they regularly don't get enough shut eye.

The health implications of sleep deprivation are equally shocking. It's been shown that when the brain is starved of sleep, its synapses begin to be 'eaten' by other cells in the brain. What's more, a lack of sleep can trigger the release of a chemical in the brain that leads to Alzheimers disease, and even that it's physically 'as bad as smoking'. Read more

Bitcoin Mempool Woes Worsen as Over 220,000 Unconfirmed Transactions Remain Queued "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Not everything is going smoothly in the world of Bitcoin right now. There have been issues with unconfirmed transactions for several days now. Whereas the mempool had 130,000 stuck transactions yesterday, things got a lot worse overnight. At the time of writing, over 220,000 transfers are waiting to be processed. All of this further confirms Bitcoin has deviated from being a currency quite some time ago. Something will need to change sooner rather than later.

Transaction woes in the Bitcoin world are nothing new under the sun. Despite the vast net worth of this network, its scaling problems become more problematic every month. The Bitcoin network cannot handle the massive amount of transactions people aim to submit. Issues like these are known for some time now, yet there is no quick and easy fix. Even the activation of SegWit hasnt pushed back the mounting number of unconfirmed transactions.

Unconfirmed Transactions Keep Flooding the Network

Scaling Bitcoin will take a lot of time and effort. While the developers are working on solutions, companies are struggling to implement them. With the SegWit adoption rate still subpar, it is evident unconfirmed transactions will remain a big problem. It isnt easy to solve this problem either, thanks to a rather fractured community. All of this further pushes Bitcoin toward becoming a store of value on the same level as gold. That would be a shame, given the fact this was originally designed to be an actual currency.

With over 220,000 unconfirmed transactions flooding the mempool, a troublesome situation is created. Until the network can process more transactions at once, these issues will remain in place. Right now, the Bitcoin network processes 3.9 transactions per second, which isnt acceptable. Moreover, these backlogs force users to pay higher fees, although that isnt a foolproof solution either. Higher fees wont solve the congestion, but only make others wait even longer while miners fill their pockets.

For the time being, its still unclear where these unconfirmed transactions come from. With the ...

Quercetin suppresses the metastatic ability of lung cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biochim Biophys Acta. 2017 10 ;1864(10):1746-1758. Epub 2017 Jun 23. PMID: 28648644 Abstract Title:  Quercetin suppresses the metastatic ability of lung cancer through inhibiting Snail-dependent Akt activation and Snail-independent ADAM9 expression pathways. Abstract:  Metastasis is the major cause of death from lung cancer. Quercetin, a widely distributed bioflavonoid, is well known to induce growth inhibition in a variety of human cancer cells, but how it affects lung cancer cell invasion and metastasis is unclear. Herein, we found that quercetin inhibited the migration/invasion of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cell lines and bone metastasis in an orthotopic A549 xenograft model by suppressing the Snail-mediated epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT). Moreover, survival times of animals were also prolonged after quercetin treatment. Mechanistic investigations found that quercetin suppressed Snail-dependent Akt activation by upregulating maspin and Snail-independent a disintegrin and metalloproteinase (ADAM) 9 expression pathways to modulate the invasive ability of NSCLC cells. In clinical samples, we observed that patients with Snailhigh/p-Akthigh tumors had the shortest survival times. In addition, a lower survival rate was also found in ADAM9high patients than in ADAM9low patients. Overall, our results provide new insights into the role of quercetin-induced molecular regulation in suppressing NSCLC metastasis and suggest that quercetin has potential therapeutic applications for metastatic NSCLC.

Bisphenol A is an exogenous toxin that promotes mitochondrial injury and death in tubular cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Environ Toxicol. 2017 Dec 7. Epub 2017 Dec 7. PMID: 29214717 Abstract Title:  Bisphenol A is an exogenous toxin that promotes mitochondrial injury and death in tubular cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Uremic toxins that accumulate in chronic kidney disease (CKD) contribute to CKD complications, such as CKD progression. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a ubiquitous environmental toxin, structurally related with p-cresol, that accumulates in CKD. Our aim was to characterize the nephrotoxic potential of BPA. Specifically, we addressed BPA toxicity over energy-demanding proximal tubular cells.METHODS: Cell death and oxidative stress were evaluated by flow cytometry and confocal microscopy in HK-2 human proximal tubular epithelial cells. Functional assays tested ATP, intracellular Ca2+ , mitochondrial function (tetramethylrhodamine methyl [TMRM]), oxygen consumption, Nrf2-binding, MitoSOX, and NADPH oxidase activity. Gene expression was assessed by qRT-PCR.RESULTS: Following acute exposure (24 hours), proximal tubular cell viability was decreased by BPA concentrations50 M while a seven-day exposure resulted in a progressive loss of cell viability at a nanomolar range. Within 24 hours, BPA promoted mitochondrial dysfunction leading to energy depletion and increased mitochondrial and cytoplasmic oxidative stress and apoptosis in a concentration-dependent manner. An antioxidant response was observed manifested by nuclear Nrf2 translocation and increased expression of the Nrf2 target genes Heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) and NAD(P)H dehydrogenase [quinone] 1 (NQO-1).CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates for the first time that BPA causes mitochondrial injury, oxidative stress and apoptotic death in tubular cells. These results characterize BPA as an exogenous toxin that, similar to uremic toxins, may contribute to CKD progression.

Situation Update ~ Cobra ~ December 7th 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

There is a full scale battle for planet Earth ongoing on the plasma plane in sublunar space right now. The light forces are focused on removing the wormlike plasmoid entity that has entered our Solar system from Orion in 1996 and is now wound up around planet Earth:

Reactions of this entity and all lesser plasmoid entities living inside its body with their exotic plasma weapons are creating brutal scalar attacks on Lightworkers and Lightwarriors recently.

A multidimensional portal to the Galactic Center will open from December 17th to December 25th with the turning point on December 21st , that will drastically change the conditions of the plasma plane in most of the sublunar space. This portal is partially accurately described here:

On the physical plane, the Light forces are purging all negative Secret Space Program factions in sublunar space. All members of those programs are given an option to unconditionally surrender and accept the Galactic Codex or be cleared out.

This purge creates a lot of unusual activity in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO), as reported by Benjamin Fulford:

Meet the Characters Immortalized in Lou Reeds Walk on the Wild Side: The Stars and Gay Rights Icons from Andy Warhols Factory Scene "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Lou Reed weathered his share of bad press in the decades after leaving one of the most influential bands in rock historyeither for his famed irascibility or his spells of lackluster songwriting. Somehow, he always had a way of bouncing back, proving again and again his cultural relevance. For example, when it seemed like he had cashed in all his credibility with the godawful Original Rapper in the mid-eighties, he returned in 1989 with the gritty classic rock and roll of New York (and played the White House at the request of his longtime fan and friend Vaclav Havel). Reed was a true survivor of a downtown scene that claimed more casualties than it made stars, and he mostly made survival look pretty good.

When he released his first solo album after quitting the Velvet Underground in 1972, however, it seemed likely Reed was headed for obscurity. Lou Reed is mostly a great collection of (mostly overproduced) songs, but it isnt a terribly interesting record, writes Mark Deming at Allmusic, and it stands today more as a historical curiosity than anything else for its early versions of songs like "Berlin." Not so the follow-up, Transformer, an album boasting what may well be some of the best recordings Reed ever made, like Perfect Day and Satellite of Love. What made the difference? The influence of David Bowie, who produced with Mick Ronson, didnt hurt one bit.

Transformer also happens to contain the only song that broke Reed through to the mainstream, notes the Polyphonic video above, the rock classic hit, Walk on the Wild Side. The song draws its narrative strength and its incredibly subversive nature from its subject: the 60s Factory scene surrounding Andy Warhol, w...

Any kind of forward thinking for Youth Services is rare enough these days, as the present government has again demonstrated by apparently binning its plans to lay out a youth policy. A new vision for these Services is therefore more than welcome, not least perhaps when it comes from an organisation with the potential clout of the Local Government Association (LGA). To be even more optimistic, its new paper could even be taken as validation for IDYW posing the question: So is the tide turning?


Whats more, this one has some proposals which resonate strongly with some parts of our own current discussion paper:

  • It starts from a view of young people as citizens now as a valued and respected part of the community whose needs and wishes are considered equally with those of other groups.
  • It describes young peoples voices as central to any offer to be made to them, including their role in service design and operation.
  • It gives unqualified endorsement to their choos(ing) to attend many services on a voluntary basis and to provision structured around their needs locally, including universal. open access provision.

Editorial: Trust Issues "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Editorial: Trust Issues

In October, executives from Facebook, Google and Twitter appeared before the U.S. Congress to face the musicthey were there to talk about the roles they played in Russias meddling during the 2016 presidential election. According to the New York Times, Facebook had revealed that more than 126 million users were exposed to political ads bought by Russian agents during the election. Meanwhile, Reuters reported Google had discovered Russian operative had spent tens of thousands of dollars on ads on YouTube, Gmail and Google Search products, and BuzzFeed News announced Twitter had offered a Russian state-owned television network up to 15 percent of its total share of U.S. elections advertising.

As a result, lawmakers introduced a new bill called the Honest Ads Act. (The) measure, in short, would require tech giants for the first time to make copies of political adsand information about the audience those ads targetedavailable for public inspection, according to Tony Romm of recode.

In addition, the new online ad disclosure rules would cover everything from promoted tweets and sponsored content to search and display advertising. And it includes ads on behalf of a candidate as well as those focused on legislative issues of national importance.

I welcome this new requirement. For too long, these tech companies have operated without a wrangler, and its about time they took responsibility for the misinformation being spread on their platforms. If the public expects newspa...


Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG/USD Bears in Control "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin gold price tumbled recently and moved below the $250 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $255 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD (data feed from Bitfinex).
  • The price is currently correcting higher, but upsides remain capped by the $255-260 resistance zone.

Bitcoin gold price is facing selling pressure around $260 against the US Dollar. BTG/USD might remain in a downtrend towards $200.

Bitcoin Gold Price Decline

There was no major recovery in bitcoin gold price above the $300 level against the US Dollar. The price failed to hold the $300 support and declined further. There was even a break below the $250 support area and a push towards the $200 handle. A low was formed at $209.37 from where the price started a minor correction. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $310 high to $209 low.

However, it is facing many hurdles on the upside near $260. The broken support at $255-260 is now acting as a resistance and preventing gains. There is also a major bearish trend line in place with resistance at $255 on the hourly chart of BTG/USD. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $310 high to $209 low is currently acting as a resistance at $248.

Bitcoin Gold Price Technical Analysis BTG USD

Therefore, a break above the $255-260 levels wont be easy. Should the price fail to move above the $260 level, it could decline back towards the $200 handle. Any further losses should be limited considering the current market conditions. On the upside, a break above the $260 level would push the price towards the $280-290 levels.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BTG/USD is now back in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BTG/USD is around the 50 level.

Major Support Level $210

Major Resistance Level $260

Everything in this Universe is created both by male and female energy. These 2 energies flow through everything that exists.

These energies are kind of opposite to each other. The dual nature of The Universe is there because of these energies.

Day and Night, Light and Dark, Expansion and Contraction, Hot and Cold, Thought and Emotion, Order and Chaos, Yin and Yang These are all projections of this primordial duality.

Even we are dual in nature. No matter your gender, we all have male and female energy within us, the ratio is just different.

How to make your HTML responsive by adding a single line of CSS "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Image credit: Unsplash

In this article Ill teach you how to use CSS Grid to create a super cool image grid which varies the amount of columns with the width of the screen.

And the most beautiful part: the responsiveness will be added with a single line of CSS.

This means we dont have to clutter up the HTML with ugly class names (i.e. col-sm-4, col-md-8) or create media queries for every single screen size.

Note: Im launching a free CSS Grid course in mid-December. Leave your email here if you want early access. Click the image below to see a preview of the course.

Now lets jump into it!

The setup

For this article, well continue on with the grid we used in my first CSS Grid article. Then well add the images at the end of the article. Heres how our initial grid looks:

Heres the HTML:







And the CSS:

.container {
display: grid;
grid-template-columns: 100px 100px 100px;
grid-template-rows: 50px 50px;
Note: the example also has a little bit of basic styling, which I wont go into here, as its got nothing to do with CSS Grid.

If this code confuses you, Id recommend you to read my Learn CSS Grid in 5 minutes article, where I explain the basics of the layout module.

Lets start by making the columns responsive.

Basic responsiveness with the fraction unit

CSS Grid brings with it a whole new value called a fraction unit. The fraction unit is written like fr, and it allows you to split the container into as many fractions as you want.

Lets change each of the columns to be one fraction unit wide.

.container {
display: grid;
grid-template-columns: 1fr 1fr 1fr;
grid-template-rows: 50px 50px;

What happens here is that the grid splits the entire width into three fractions and each of the columns take up one unit each. Here is the result:



One Day, or Day One: Embracing Carpe Diem "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The important thing is this: to be able at any moment to sacrifice what we are for what we could become. ~Charles Du Bos

What do you want to become? What do you want to achieve? Whatever it is, it will require sacrifice. The first sacrifice is time. You will have to decide between two contrasting options: One day, or day one. Will today be day one, or will you put it off until one day in the future?

Settling on one day leaves your life up to others and to fate. Deciding on day one gives you a little leverage, a little say so in the process. With one day, the day seizes you, and youre powerless and left at the mercy of circumstance. With day one, you seize the day, and youre empowered to make the best of circumstance. As Epictetus said, Circumstances dont make the man; they only reveal him to himself. Dont settle for one day. Cultivate the mettle for day one instead.

Whatever it is: writing a novel, starting a band, traveling the world, getting a PhD. Make today day one of that process. There will be challenges. There will be setbacks. There will be obstacles that seem almost impossible to pass. Dont wait until youre ready. Because what if youre never ready? Fear not. Embrace the fear and begin. Use fear as a diving board and dive into your passion.

If you worry too much about what could go wrong, youll slip back into a one day mentality. If you wait until youre ready, one day will consume your life. And thats no place to be when youre on the path toward something great. Dont make excuses. Excuses are just you getting in the way of what you want to achieve. Get out of your own way and seize the day.

Of course, day one is itself a series of moments. So, seizing the moment must come first. Carpe punctum (seize the moment) leads to carpe diem (seize the day) leads to carpe vita (seize the life). Lets break it down.

Carpe punctum (seize the moment):

There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: Not going all the way, and not starting. ~The Buddha

Heres the thing: you have from this moment until the day you die (which could be tomorrow or eighty years from now) to live the life you want to live. But it all starts with this moment. Right now. What are you going to do? The same thing youve been doing, or will you try something new? Will you just keep pushing the broom of procrastination into the abyss of one day or will you seize the moment, toss the broom into the abyss, make today day one and get busy cultivating your passion?

Your goals, your dreams, your aspirations, they all begin right now. They may or may not come to fruition s...

"Weekly News Wrap-Up 12/8/2017"
By Greg Hunters 

"President Donald Trump has done what many previous presidents have promised in the past, and that is to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton all said they would recognize Jerusalem as the capital of the Jewish state, but never did. The reason was the efforts to get an Israeli and Palestinian peace deal, which has been tried but never accomplished. Now, the world is outraged at President Trumps bold move. Violence is expected, and U.S. allies are angry, but Trump has thrown his support decidedly behind Israel. 

Robert Muellers investigation into the Trump Administrations so-called Russian collusion has not turned over one single bit of evidence that ever happened. Meanwhile, Muellers team has been exposed as a bunch of Trump hating Democrats. Now, Congress is asking why a lead investigator has been fired. Representative Jim Jordan says not only is the Mueller investigation biased, but it used a discredited dossier, paid for by Hillary Clinton, to start this phony investigation. Peter Strzok was the top investigator fired for dressing it up as counterintelligence and obtaining a warrant for wiretapping Trump associates and his family.

COBRA's Situation Update - December 7, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Situation Update

There is a full scale battle for planet Earth ongoing on the plasma plane in sublunar space right now. The light forces are focused on removing the wormlike plasmoid entity that has entered our Solar system from Orion in 1996 and is now wound up around planet Earth:

Reactions of this entity and all lesser plasmoid entities living inside its body with their exotic plasma weapons are creating brutal scalar attacks on Lightworkers and Lightwarriors recently.

A multidimensional portal to the Galactic Center will open from December 17th to December 25th with the turning point on December 21st , that will drastically change the conditions of the plasma plane in most of the sublunar space. This portal is partially accurately described here:

On the physical plane, the Light forces are purging all negative Secret Space Program factions in sublunar space. All members of those programs are given an option to unconditionally surrender and accept the Galactic Codex or be cleared out.

This purge creates a lot of unusual activity in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO), as reported by Benjamin Fulford:

The hammer of Thor will continue to hammer until February 2018:

The Light forces are also purging all negative factions that were trying to hide in Antarctica and above the Arctic circle, especially on Baffin Island and on Novaya Zemlya:

6 Signs The Clever Narcissist Has Got You In Their Trap "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Narcissists see the world and those in it much differently than you and I. When it comes to understanding why these people do the things they do you need to know their mindset when they do them.

When the narcissist first spots you he or she will think that they have to have you; that they can gain so much by being with you. You are seen as a pawn. While you think this is your prince charming coming to sweep you off your feet. Youre getting something much more sinister.

They see you as their property, someone who they can do whatever they want to. Whether you decide you dont want to be with the narcissist or not they will still perceive you as their property. The mind of a narcissist is very me oriented, they are some of the most selfish people on this planet.

Narcissists dont see things as right or wrong in the ways that we do. They see things as everything I do is right and everything you do is wrong. They will manipulate you into seeing things from their perspective. For instance, If they make a mistake they will blame it on you because you should have prevented it, or something along those lines. In the long run, you will end up walking on eggshells to try and keep the narcissist happy.

The narcissist will cut you off from your friends and family. He or she will control your every move. You will be nothing more than a personal robot, isolated from everyone who truly cares for you. You wont even know who you are anymore, that is just the way the narcissist wants you to be. Nothing you do is ever enough and no matter how hard you try the narcissist is only going to bring you down. You will continue to be put down until things either run their course and you are discarded like trash or you come to your senses and get away while you still can.

Being with a narcissist has lasting adverse effects on us and while you may escape the relationship you cant just get rid of those effects overnight. This is called narcissistic abuse syndrome and it is much more real than people like to admit. The symptoms of this are actually very similar to that of PTSD or post-traumatic stress disorder.

Quick Tips to Grow Chives "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

If you don't grow herbs in your garden, outside containers or inside, you're missing out on powerful flavors, variety in your meals and impressive health benefits. Aromatic herbs are an excellent key ingredient to any garden, most providing you with a full summer of growth and beauty. Herbs are derived from the leafy green parts of plants, like their leaves and stems, while spices come from other parts, such as flowers, roots, bulbs or bark.

Herbs are often used fresh, while spices are usually dried before use in cooking. However, both offer unique and potent additions to your meals and your health. Chives are an herb with a long history. The plant is easily grown in your backyard or even indoors and offers several health benefits inside a fragrant and pleasantly subtle onion or garlic-flavored herb.

History and Facts

Chives are a member of the onion family native to Asia and Europe. They were actively cultivated during the Middle Ages and used in China,1 prized for their delicate taste. The wild cousin of the chive can be found growing throughout the Northern Hemisphere. The chive grows in clumps like grasses. Unlike the onion, there is no large bulb that grows underground. Instead, the chive is valued for the green leaves and round, puffy flowers.

The Romans brought chives to Britain, where they still grow wild near Hadrian's Wall, a defensive wall built in A.D.122 during the reign of emperor Hadrian.2 Today the plant is used as an herb and an ornamental garden plant. Chives are related to the lily family, as are onions, garlic and leeks,3 and a member of the allium family. Members of this family of vegetables share the same basic body type: thin grass-like leaves growing from a bulb or fleshy roots.

The botanical name, Allium schoenoprasum, is derived from a Greek word meaning reed-like leek.4 These herbs are among the easiest to grow in the allium family as they are perennial, coming back year after year with little encouragement, and they are among the first to appear in earl...

How to Grow Endive "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

While they look deceptively similar to lettuce, with one bite you will realize endive tastes slightly bitter. Despite there being a fair amount of confusion in terms of distinguishing endive from other members of the chicory family, it is characterized by a large rosette with narrow, curly-edged, light-green center leaves surrounded by dark-green outer leaves.

Endives close relatives Belgian endive, curly endive (also known as frise) and escarole are names of other chicory relatives that are sometimes confused and used interchangeably with endive.

No matter which endive variety you choose, all of them are an excellent source of vitamins A, B, C and K, as well as calcium, copper, iron, manganese, potassium and zinc. The bitter taste of endive results from a substance called intybin, which is thought to be a mild appetite stimulant and digestive aid. Endive also contains kaempferol, a flavonoid found in many fruits and vegetables that has been shown to reduce your risk of ovarian cancer.

If you enjoy stronger-tasting salad greens, I highly recommend endive, which was ranked No. 13 on a list of the top powerhouse fruits and vegetables. Heres all you need to know to successfully grow and enjoy endive.

Endive, Belgian Endive, Escarole, Curly Endive: Whats the Difference?

Endive, which originated from Asia Minor, is a type of chicory found within the daisy (Asteraceae or Compositae) family.1 While it is closely related to lettuces, endive has both a distinctive look and taste. Other chicories are: Belgian endive, curly endive (also known as frise), escarole and radicchio. Although endive is often described as coming in both curly and flat-leaf varieties, that is not quite true. While all of the chicories are bitter tasting, you can tell them apart according to their leaves:2

  • Belgian endive has pale yellow leaves and an elongated rocket-like shape
  • Endive features a rosette of narrow, frilly leaves
  • Escarole is characterized by a rosette of broader, flatter leaves
  • Curly endive, also known as frise ("free-ZAY"), is frizzy and wild-looking with curly, pale green or yellowish leaves. To add more confusion, what Americans and the French refer to as frise is called endive in the U.K.



Non-invasive low strength pulsed electric field to EGCG treatment synergistically enhanced the inhibition effect on PANC-1 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2017 ;12(11):e0188885. Epub 2017 Nov 29. PMID: 29186186 Abstract Title:  Application of non-invasive low strength pulsed electric field to EGCG treatment synergistically enhanced the inhibition effect on PANC-1 cells. Abstract:  Traditional therapies for pancreatic cancer are usually expensive and likely to cause side effects, and most patients have the risk of recurrence and suffering pain. Here, we investigated combination treatment of epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) and non-invasive low strength pulsed electric field (PEF) on the human pancreatic cell line PANC-1. Cells were cultured in various concentrations of EGCG and exposed to trains of PEF. The results showed that the low strength PEF alone or single treatment with low concentration of EGCG did not obviously affect the cell proliferation and migration in PANC-1. However, the EGCG-induced inhibitions of cell viability and migration ability in PANC-1 were dramatically enhanced by the further exposure of low strength PEF (60 V/cm). In particular, the same combination treatment caused less inhibition of cell viability in non-malignant HEK293 cells. We also found the combination treatment significantly decreased the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax protein and increased caspase activity in PANC-1 cells, resulting in the promotion of apoptotic responses, evidenced by chromatin condensation. The findings of the present study reveal the synergistic reactions in the combination treatment may severely disturb mitochondria, enhance the intrinsic pathway transduction, and effectively induce apoptosis; moreover, the migration and invasion of PANC-1 cancer cells were also significantly suppressed. Since normal cells are less sensitive to this combination treatment, and the non-invasive PEF could be modified to focus on a specific location, this treatment may serve as a promising method for anti-cancer therapy.

Butcher Admits To Selling Infected Meat and Mislabeling Products, The Meat Industry Has Gone Too Far "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

About a month ago an image of this icky meat took the internet by storm, it has been shared over 5,000 times and seems to be infected or something along those lines. It is, to be honest, a little hard to look at.

This photo was posted by Tiorted Boodang with the caption This guy said hes been a butcher for 30 years and when he sees cancer in the pork he just cut it out then they still sell the meat to customers. Smh.  So, according to the butcher, he was in contact with this green nastiness was simply going to be cut out and the rest would go on to be sold to customers. People have been arguing over this on a very intense level. Some think it is bullshit while others agree that they have seen it happen during their time working in the butchering environment.

Considering the government seems to be more focused on profit than whether or not we are getting healthy good quality meats, I do not doubt that this is legitimate. If you know anything about Supreme Beef v. USDA you know the Court actually ruled that it was not illegal to sell contaminated meat. Strangely enough it was deemed that the USDA was in the wrong on this specific case for shutting down a plant that was continuing to sell chicken that was contaminated with a hostile strain of Salmonella. This being because apparently Salmonella is fine since it doesnt render the meat injurious to health. You can read more about that by clicking here and here.

Nobiletin and EGCG are good candidates for preventing diseases caused by excessive fructose intake. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biosci Biotechnol Biochem. 2017 Dec 1:1-11. Epub 2017 Dec 1. PMID: 29191128 Abstract Title:  Suppressive effect of nobiletin and epicatechin gallate on fructose uptake in human intestinal epithelial Caco-2 cells. Abstract:  Inhibition of excessive fructose intake in the small intestine could alleviate fructose-induced diseases such as hypertension and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. We examined the effect of phytochemicals on fructose uptake using human intestinal epithelial-like Caco-2 cells which express the fructose transporter, GLUT5. Among 35 phytochemicals tested, five, including nobiletin and epicatechin gallate (ECg), markedly inhibited fructose uptake. Nobiletin and ECg also inhibited the uptake of glucose but not of L-leucine or Gly-Sar, suggesting an inhibitory effect specific to monosaccharide transporters. Kinetic analysis further suggested that this reduction in fructose uptake was associated with a decrease in the apparent number of cell-surface GLUT5 molecules, and not with a change in the affinity of GLUT5 for fructose. Lastly, nobiletin and ECg suppressed the permeation of fructose across Caco-2 cell monolayers. These findings suggest that nobiletin and ECg are good candidates for preventing diseases caused by excessive fructose intake.

10 Characteristics Only A Truly Genuine Person Would Have "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Truly generous people are few and far between. They are what this world needs more of.

Genuine people have experienced life in a way different than the rest of the world. They look at things from an optimistic point of view and want to help those who need them. They are attracted to uniqueness and love people who strive to be themselves. The genuine person knows that in life we are always learning and improving.

10 Characteristics Only A Truly Genuine Person Would Have:

1. They do not judge other people.

The genuine person looks for the best in everyone. He or she thinks that we all have potential and knows that judgmental people suck. The genuine person doesnt want to be judged so he or she does not judge.

2. They take responsibility for their actions.

They own up to their mistakes and will not cast blame on anyone else. They know when they have messed up and are not going to wait for someone else to bring it up. The genuine person will be the first to apologize for any of their possible wrongdoings.

3. They know that everything is a lesson to learn from.

Everything in life is something we can learn from. This applies to our mistakes and even the moments when we fail to be able to do something. This, I guess you could say plays into their optimistic personalities.

4. They speak their minds.

They are not scared to say the things they want to say. They will not bite their tongue; if something needs to be said, it will be said.

5. They are not afraid to express themselves.

They are all about self-expression, and if they cannot express themselves chances are they are not happy. Being unique is important to them.

6. They let go of those who are overly negative with ease.

They dont let negative people remain in their lives. They cut them out without feeling bad about it. We only get one life, it is too short to waste any time spending it with someone who is bringing everyone down.

7. They dont take advice without thinking first.

They think everything through. Sure, they are willing to take advice, but only if it is good advice. Everything has to make sense to them before they move forward.

8. They are not chronic complainers.

They may complain about something from time to time but they are not chronic complai...

EGCG may be useful as an adjuvant therapy for bronchial asthma. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Int J Mol Med. 2017 Nov 28. Epub 2017 Nov 28. PMID: 29207033 Abstract Title:  Epigallocatechin-3-gallate inhibits inflammation and epithelialmesenchymal transition through the PI3K/AKT pathway via upregulation of PTEN in asthma. Abstract:  Asthma is a chronic disease associated with hyperresponsiveness, obstruction and remodeling of the airways. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has an important role in these alterations and may account for the accumulation of subepithelial mesenchymal cells, thus contributing to airway hyperresponsiveness and remodeling. Epigallo-catechin3gallate (EGCG), which is a type of polyphenol, is the most potent ingredient in green tea, and exhibits antibacterial, antiviral, antioxidative, anticancer and chemopreventive activities. Recently, numerous studies have investigated the protective effects of EGCG against asthma and other lung diseases. In the present study, the role of EGCG in ovalbumin (OVA)challenged asthmatic mice was determined. In addition, the inhibitory effects of EGCG against transforming growth factor (TGF)1induced EMT and migration of 16HBE cells, and the underlying mechanisms of the phosphatidylinositol 3kinase/protein kinase B (PI3K/Akt) signaling pathway, were investigated by immunouorescence, Transwell, wound healing assay and western blot analysis, respectively. The results indicated that EGCG may suppress inflammation and inflammatory cell infiltration into the lungs of OVAchallenged asthmatic mice, and may also inhibit EMT via the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway throughupregulating the expression of phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN) in vivo and in vitro. The present study also revealed the antimigratory effects of EGCG in TGF1induced 16HBE cells, thus suggesting it may reduce airway remodeling. The present study provides a novel insight into understanding the protective effects of EGCG on airway remodeling in asthma, and indicates that EGCG may be useful as an adjuvant therapy for bronchial asthma.

Bitcoin Phase Transition or Plateau Move? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Hackers have managed to get $70 million worth of Bitcoin, revealing the risk of all electronic forms of money to which cryptocurrencies are not exempt. The prices keep soaring and requests to add it to Socrates have been coming in so we are complying. With the futures about to begin, this should make it a more transparent market. The problem now is a single trade can be registered just buy one coin to put up prints that do not reflect volume. A future contract will help reveal the true depth of a market.

If we accept the quotes as real, then Bitcoins market capitalization is now larger than that of major US banks Citigroup or JP Morgan standing at about $ 220 billion. The problem that emerges is the reclassification legally of Bitcoin. Because it is pretending to be a currency rather than a stock, governments can simply take the latest print and declare that to be a profit and tax you on that number. If the governments would accept Bitcoin as legal tender in payment of taxes, that would be fine. However, if they demand their own currency (dollars) which then forces one to sell Bitcoin to pay the tax, then the price will collapse and they will force you to pay the tax on the inflated number. You can claim you lost money selling it below that figure and they then allow a tax credit but spread out over 10 years. Bitcoin should swap everything to shares and that will eliminate the clash with the government. 

Meanwhile, we will let Socrates generate the Reversals and the timing arrays for the forecast as we do with any instrument. At least it is a computer with no bias. So far, it indicates we are only in a Phase Transition.

However, this run-up began with the November 25th ECM turning point from the 8,000 level, Interesting that the ECM date has market such a Directional Change where Bitcoin and the stock market have taken off marking a clear shift in trend took place.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Struggle Continues "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price continues to face selling pressure below the $425 pivot level against the US Dollar.
  • There are two key bearish trend lines forming with resistance around $420 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is currently under pressure and it is following a bearish path below $428.

Ethereum price faced a lot of selling pressure against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is now below $410 and eyeing more declines.

Ethereum Price Resistance

It seems like there is no stopping sellers as ETH price declined below the $420 and $410 levels against the US Dollar. The price failed to correct substantially and faced heavy offers near $425. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $461 high to $410 also acted as a hurdle. A fresh downside wave was initiated and the price moved below the $410 support. A new low was formed at $397.30 and is currently correcting higher.

It moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $397.30 low. However, it once again faced sellers and struggled to break the $425 zone. There are also two key bearish trend lines forming with resistance around $420 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. These trend lines are near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $460.54 high to $397.30 low. Therefore, it wont be easy for buyers to break the $420-425 resistance zone.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

In short, it seems like the price is still in a downtrend below $425. It might retest the last swing low of $397 in the short term. Below $397, the price could accelerate decline towards the $380 support zone in the near term.

Hourly MACD The MACD has slightly reduced its bearish slope.

Hourly RSI The RSI is still below the 50 level and is struggling to move higher.

Major Support Level $397

Major Resistance Level $425

This reviews EGCG and its protective role in diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Pharmacol. 2017 ;8:834. Epub 2017 Nov 16. PMID: 29209211 Abstract Title:  Diabetes Mellitus and Alzheimer's Disease: The Protection of Epigallocatechin-3-gallate in Streptozotocin Injection-Induced Models. Abstract:  Diabetes mellitus is considered as a risk factor of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the front runner of neurodegenerative disorders. Streptozotocin (STZ) is a toxin for pancreatic-cell, which can construct a model of insulin deficient diabetes through intraperitoneal or intravenous injection. A model generated by intracerebroventricular STZ (icv-STZ) also shows numerous aspects of sporadic AD. The protective roles of tea polyphenols epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) on both two diseases were researched by some scientists. This review highlights the link between diabetes and AD and recent studies on STZ injection-induced models, and also discusses the protection of EGCG to clarify its treatment in STZ-induced diabetes and AD.

NEM BEARS CAUSE WILD PRICE SWINGS AS DASH AND MONERO BULLS RECOVER Technical Analysis for December 8, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

NEM bears were the talk of the day yesterday coming after a NEM dump on Poloniex exchange.

While this caused volatility, we expect the markets to cool down today.

IOTA, Monero and DASH bulls look to be recovering and should NEO bulls bounce from $34 as it is now, then they could end up testing $40 and $50.

Lets look at the charts:


alt coin NEM bears 4HR chart technical analysis NEMUSD 4HR Chart for December 8, 2017

Yesterday it didnt matter if you were long or in the NEM bears camp. First there was a swing high and if you had a take profit in place then it definitely got hit.

Conversely take profits on the sell side got hit because of that bear squeeze that followed. Technically, we were set for longs but that has been invalidated as there was no confirmation of higher highs at $0.25 support.

The cause of this NEM bears squeeze was a wholesale dump at Poloniex.

Price is not stable yet and we have to wait until a clear trend forms.

Any NEM higher highs and we are back in the trade because there is a buy stochastic signal in place.


alt coin DASH 4HR chart technical analysisDASHUSD 4HR Chart for December 8, 2017

DASH price action is still below the 20 period MA and actually trading below the main support-now resistance line at $670.

We are net bullish meaning that we are waiting for opportune signals to enter longs. As we can see there is a stochastic buy signal in place turning from oversold territory. Additionally, the current candlestick is actually bullish.

DASH bulls shall wait for this candlestick buy confirmation. Any close above $670 should actually begin price recovery towards $820 highs.

Piperlongumine suppresses bladder cancer invasion. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2017 12 9 ;494(1-2):165-172. Epub 2017 Oct 14. PMID: 29037814 Abstract Title:  Piperlongumine suppresses bladder cancer invasion via inhibiting epithelial mesenchymal transition and F-actin reorganization. Abstract:  Piperlongumine (PL), a natural alkaloid isolated from longer pepper plants, is recently found to be a potent selective anti-cancer compound. We first tested its anti-cancer effects on bladder cancer, the fifth most common and aggressive cancer worldwide, to further explore the therapeutic spectrum and molecular mechanisms of PL. PL significantly suppressed bladder cancer cell proliferation, the transition of G2/M phase to next phase, migration/invasion in vitro and bladder cancer growth/development in vivo. PL markedly elevated reactive oxygen species (ROS) and the administration of antioxidants abolished PL induced cell proliferation inhibition, G2/M phase arrest and migration suppression on bladder cancer cells. In vivo studies demonstrated that PL inhibited epithelial mesenchymal transition with profoundly decreased level of Slug, -catenin, ZEB1 and N-Cadherin. Further, we first reported PL effects on cytoskeleton with prominently reduced lamellipodia formation and decreased F-actin intensity in bladder cancer cells. Taken together, our results first revealed that PL suppressed bladder cancer proliferation and migration in vivo and in vitro, suggesting novel mechanism underlying PL's anti-cancer effect and providing a new anticancer drug strategy for bladder cancer therapy.

These results suggest that piperlongumine possesses antiproliferative properties in A549 cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Nov 6 ;111:9-18. Epub 2017 Nov 6. PMID: 29109039 Abstract Title:  Piperlongumine decreases cell proliferation and the expression of cell cycle-associated proteins by inhibiting Akt pathway in human lung cancer cells. Abstract:  Piperlongumine (PL) is an alkaloid of a pepper plant found in Southeast Asia. PL is known to induce selective toxicity towards a variety of cancer cell types. To explore the possible anti-lung cancer effects of PL, A549 cells were treated with PL (0-40 M) for 24 h. Alterations in the expression of cell cycle-associated proteins (cyclin D1, cyclin-dependent kinase 4 (CDK4), CDK6 and retinoblastoma (Rb)) and intracellular signaling molecules (extracellular signal receptor-activated kinase 1/2 (ERK1/2), Akt, p38and nuclear factor-B (NF-B)) were examined in cells following treatment of PL using Western blot analysis. Results showed that proliferation of cells were significantly decreased by PL in a dose-dependent manner. Flow cytometry results demonstrated increased number of cells in G1 phase in PL (40 M)-treated group. Reactive oxygen species was significantly increased in cells treated with PL at 20-40 M. The expression of cyclin D1, CDK4, CDK6 and p-Rb were markedly decreased in cells treated with PL at 40 M. Treatment of cells with PL suppressed phosphorylation of Akt but increasedERK1/2 phosphorylation. Treatment of PL significantly decreased nuclear translocation of NF-B p65 in cells. These results suggest that PL possesses antiproliferative properties in A549 cells.

Piperlongumine might have therapeutic potential for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Inflamm Res. 2017 Nov 8. Epub 2017 Nov 8. PMID: 29119225 Abstract Title:  Piperlongumine inhibits the proliferation, migration and invasion of fibroblast-like synoviocytes from patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Abstract:  OBJECTIVES: Recent studies have indicated that piperlongumine (PLM) may exert anti-inflammatory effects. In the present study, we determined the effect of PLM on the proliferation, apoptosis, migration and invasion of fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS) from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (referred to herein as RA FLS). We further explored the mechanisms by which the studied compound inhibits the functions of RA FLS.METHODS: RA FLS viability and apoptosis were tested using MTT and Annexin V/PI assays, respectively. We performed an EDU assay to examine the proliferation of RA FLS. The migration and invasion of these cells were measured using a transwell chamber method and wound closure assay. The MMP-1, MMP-3, and MMP-13 levels in the culture supernatants of RA FLS were detected using a Luminex Assay kit. The intracellular ROS levels were detected using DCFH-DA. The expression levels of signal transduction proteins were measured using western blot.RESULTS: We found that PLM induced apoptosis in RA FLS at concentrations of 15 and 20 M. The proliferation of RA FLS was downregulated by PLM at concentrations of 1, 5 and 10 M. Migration and invasion of RA FLS were reduced by PLM at concentrations of 1, 5 and 10 M. PLM also inhibited cytoskeletal reorganization in migrating RA FLS and decreased TNF--induced intracellular ROS production. Moreover, we demonstrated the inhibitory effect of PLM on activation of the p38, JNK, NF-B and STAT3 pathways.CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that PLM can inhibit proliferation, migration and invasion of RA FLS. Moreover, these data suggests that PLM might have therapeutic potential for the treatment of RA.

Piperine restores streptozotocin-induced cognitive impairments. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Behav Brain Res. 2018 Jan 30 ;337:131-138. Epub 2017 Sep 20. PMID: 28939403 Abstract Title:  Piperine restores streptozotocin-induced cognitive impairments: Insights into oxidative balance in cerebrospinal fluid and hippocampus. Abstract:  Piperine has been shown to have antioxidant activity and a cognitive-enhancing effect following long-term oral administration. In a comparative study of memantine, the current investigation threw light on the cognitive benefits of piperine. Lipid peroxidation and the ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP) of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and hippocampus in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced experimental dementia of the Alzheimer's type was measured. After reaching a criterion in a memory test, STZ-induced rats received piperine [2.5, 5, and 10mg/kg, intraperitoneally (i.p.)], vehicle, and memantine (10mg/kg, i.p.) for two weeks after the first STZ administration, or two weeks before and one week after, as a preventive approach. After the behavioral studies, samples were taken for biochemical and histological assays. An appropriate concentration of piperine (2.5mg/kg), on a daily basis, effectively increased the number of correct (non-repeated) arm entries and repressed reentry to a previously visited arm, in terms of reference errors as well as memantine (10mg/kg, i.p.), irrespective of the dose administered. The cognitive-enhancing effect induced by piperine at a relevant dose was simultaneous with CSF and hippocampal malonaldehyde decrement, and the redox balance was established to some extent by maintaining the FRAP levels of CSF near to those of the control. Similarly, the neuroprotective properties of piperine are in accordance with histopathological outcomes, which have shown an increased number of live cresyl violet (CV)-positive neurons in a dentate gyrus (DG) subregion. Therefore, the effects of piperine on the redox balance of CSF and hippocampal neurons may certainly contribute to the cognitive-enhancing activity of the drug.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH/USD Downtrend Intact "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price remained under pressure and moved below the $1200 support against the US Dollar.
  • There are two main bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $1250 and $1430 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price might move a few points higher, but it remains in downtrend as long as it is below $1400.

Bitcoin cash price struggled further below $1200 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD remains in a downtrend and it might continue to face sellers.

Bitcoin Cash Price Decline

There were non-stop gains in BTC/USD, which pushed bitcoin cash price below the $1200 support against the US Dollar. The price made a minor correction, faced sellers near $1400 and started a fresh downside move. It failed to move above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1550 high to $1300 low. The recent decline was such that the price broke the $1300 low and even cleared the $1200 support.

A new low was formed at $1150.10 from where the price is currently correcting. An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1470 high to $1150 low. On the upside, there are two main bearish trend lines forming with resistance at $1250 and $1430 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. The first trend line is also near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1470 high to $1150 low.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

Therefore, the $1250 level and the $1300 handle are likely to act as a major barrier for a recovery. The most important resistance on the upside remains at $1400 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is gaining pace in the bearish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is now near the oversold levels.

Major Support Level $1150

Major Resistance Level $1250

Your Mind Is Not Limited to Your Brain, Scientists Say "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Peace Quarters

Have you ever questioned someones state of mind or reminded someone that it pays to be mindful? Maybe youve told someone that they needed to be more open-minded? Or perhaps youve felt like you need to find some peace of mind for yourself.

But have you ever wondered what exactly a mind is?

If you try, its quite difficult to define the concept. It is the center and stronghold of your being, the basis of your consciousness and without it can you even be considered to be truly alive? I have wondered many times about what and where it is.

Most scientists tend to define the mind as the result of brain activity. The brain is the physical and the mind is the conscious result of the brains firing neurons. But more and more evidence is proving that our thoughts are much more than just a purely physical reaction.

Dan Siegel, a professor at UCLA School of Medicine recently published a book titled Mind: A Journey to the Heart of Being Human and has shared his definition, that says our minds cant be limited to the confines of our brains or our bodies.

Piperine enhanced mitomycin-C therapy in human cervical cancer cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biomed Pharmacother. 2017 Nov 20. Epub 2017 Nov 20. PMID: 29169726 Abstract Title:  Piperine (PP) enhanced mitomycin-C (MMC) therapy of human cervical cancer through suppressing Bcl-2 signaling pathway via inactivating STAT3/NF-B. Abstract:  Piperine (PP), an alkaloid from black and long peppers (Piper nigrum Linn&Piper longum Linn), exhibits antitumor activities in vitro and in vivo. We investigated the ability of piperine (PP) to reverse the drug resistance of human cervical cancer cells. In our study, the cervica cancer cells resistant to mitomycin-C (MMC) treatment were used. We found the growth inhibitory effects of piperine on human cervical cancer cell, which were resistant to MMC. Piperine and MMC co-treatment resulted in a dose-dependent suppression of the cell proliferation. Decreasing of phosphorylated-signal transducer and activator of transcription (p-STAT3) was linked to the suppression of p65 by PP and MMC combinational treatment. Additionally, the presence of PP potentiated the effects of MMC on apoptosis induction in cervical cancer cells with drug resistance, which was dependent on Bcl-2 inhibition. The pro-apoptotic proteins of Bax and Bid were up-regulated, accompanied with Caspase cleavage. Moreover, in mice xenograft models, the combined therapy inhibited tumor growth compared to the PP or MMC mono-therapy group. Our data indicated a novel therapeutic strategy of PP to potentiate MMC-induced anti-tumor effect on cervical cancer cells with drug resistance through blocking p-STAT3/p65 and Bcl-2 activation.

Eugenol may be a promising external treatment for breast precancerous lesions. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncotarget. 2017 Aug 22 ;8(34):56296-56310. Epub 2017 May 5. PMID: 28915591 Abstract Title:  Eugenol alleviated breast precancerous lesions through HER2/PI3K-AKT pathway-induced cell apoptosis and S-phase arrest. Abstract:  Eugenol can be separated from the oil extract of clove bud, and has many pharmacological functions such as anticancer and transdermal absorption. HER2/PI3K-AKT is a key signaling pathway in the development of breast cancer. In this study, 80M eugenol could significantly inhibit the proliferation of HER-2 positive MCF-10AT cells and the inhibition rate was up to 32.8%, but had no obvious inhibitory effect on MCF-7 and MCF-10A cells with HER2 weak expression. Eugenol also significantly induced human breast precancerous lesion MCF-10ATcell apoptosis and cell cycle S-phase arrest, but the biological effects nearly disappeared after HER2 over-expression through transfecting pcDNA3.1-HER2. In MCF-10AT cells treated by 180 M eugenol, the protein expressions of HER2, AKT, PDK1, p85, Bcl2, NF-B, Bad and Cyclin D1 were decreased andthe decreased rates were respectively 63.0%, 60.0%, 52.9%, 62.9%, 37.1%, 47.2%, 61.7%, 59.1%, while the p21, p27 and Bax expression were increased by 4.48-, 4.76- and 2.57-fold respectively. In the rat models of breast precancerous lesion, 1 mg eugenol for external use significantly inhibited the progress of breast precancerous lesion and the occurrence rate of breast precancerous lesions and invasive carcinomas was decreased by about 30.5%. Furthermore eugenol for external (1 mg) markedly decreased the protein expressions of HER2 (62.9%), AKT (58.6%), PDK1 (56.4%), p85 (54.3%), Bcl2 (59.3%),NF-B (65.7%), Bad (64.0%), Cyclin D1 (43.0%), while p21, p27 and Bax protein expressions were respectively increased 1.83-, 2.52- and 2.51-fold. The results showed eugenol could significantly inhibit the development of breast precancerous lesions by blocking HER2/PI3K-AKT signaling network. So eugenol may be a promising external drug for breast precancerous lesions.

These results suggest eugenol as a potential chemotherapeutic agent against human lung cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

PMID:  Thorac Cancer. 2017 Oct 12. Epub 2017 Oct 12. PMID: 29024500 Abstract Title:  Tumor suppressive roles of eugenol in human lung cancer cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Eugenol, a natural compound available in Syzigium aromaticum (cloves), is exploited for various medicinal applications. Eugenol induces apoptosis and functions as an anti-cancer drug in several types of tumors. We investigated the tumor suppressive role and potential mechanisms of eugenol in human lung cancer cells.METHODS: Human embryonic lung fibroblast MRC-5 and lung cancer adenocarcinoma A549 cells were incubated with or without various concentrations of eugenol for 24hours. Cell counting kit 8 and crystal violet staining assays were performed to detect cell viability. The cell migration and invasion abilities were also determined by wound healing and transwell assays. Finally, Western blotting assay was performed to examine the changes in lung cancer cell viability and invasion of downstream targets after treatment with eugenol.RESULTS: Eugenol could inhibit cell viability in lung cancer cells. Furthermore, eugenol obviously impaired cell migration and invasion. Finally, the expression levels of phosphate-Akt and MMP-2 in lung cancer cells were reduced after treatment with eugenol.CONCLUSION: Our results demonstrated the tumor suppressive roles of eugenol on lung cancer cell proliferation, migration, and invasion partially through the PI3K/Akt pathway and MMP activity in vitro. These results suggest eugenol as a potential chemotherapeutic agent against human lung cancer.

They ARE being arrested for pizza. But the MSM sure as fuck arent going to say it and connect the dots for you. Especially after they sent in actor Edgar Welsh to shoot up a pizza/ping pong place in the middle of DC just to prove how crazy anyone is to even consider it a possibility, right?

Local media will report it though... heres another arrested in October for his cheese pizza ads on Craigslist. Lots of these stories being reported all over. Canada loves their trafficked pizza too. Justin was cheese pizzaed himself, then groomed for politics like a good boy. Ask his wife. She knows. Dig.

Its crazy, right? Hows the now sex abusing and hiding FBI, going to explain old Pennsylvania Governor Eddie and his mob-tied kid pizza trafficking rings out of Philly, when they themselves, participated in and covered up, sex abuse during the ENTIRE Obama admin., right? Muellers FBI was all over the mob in Philly... at least they said they were. All those stings/takedowns they highlighted as successes? All those mob front businesses, primarily privately owned restaurants they busted the mob owning to launder money, firearms and drugs in/out of? Weird all that investigating never showed or uncovered all that unironic money youre now finding out about, tied to the trafficking, distributing, selling/purchasing and transfers of Kids as young as 2 months old, to buyers, amiright?!

Lets put it this way yall, whenever you happen to hear it have heard over the last 9 months that the FBI is raiding or busting drug, guns or gang rings, just know that WHEN the time is right, youre gonna find out just how much the old FBI, knew/covered up and actually liked, all things pizza.

The 5 Soul Groups You Belong To "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Tanaaz; Forever Conscious

Do you ever feel like you just dont belong? Well, think again.

Your soul is energy and this same energy is what creates everyone and everything in this Universe. When broken down to purely an energetic state, we are all connected and we are all one.

We are all here because we have a purpose to be here and a reason and motivation for existing. Many wise sages over the years have said that Earth is simply a playground where we come to learn things and experience life in the material form.

On Earth we can indulge in physical and material pleasures, and learn what it means to feel love, hate and everything in between.

On a soul level, we are all here to walk this journey, and even though everyones path is slightly different, we all come here with a group of souls that are energetically in harmony with us. These Soul Groups are connected to us in higher realms and also during our time on Earth.

People from our designated Soul Groups are those that we have a soul contract with, and are supposed to be part of our learning journey on this earth. Sometimes we also agree to team up with these souls in order to create and bring new innovation to earth.

9 Signs of A Woman Who Has Been Deprived of Sex for Far Too Long "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Sometimes we go through periods of time where sex just isnt an option. This can cause a lot of different issues that most people would never think of.

If you are dealing with a dry spell then you might be going through some of the things listed below. Not having sex does affect your body and this varies based on your health, age, and of course the kind of sex you were having to begin with. That being said, I am not talking about those who are only going through a short spell, I am talking about going without sex for more than a few weeks or a couple months.

9 Things That Happen to A Woman When She Goes Through A Dry Spell:

1. Her immune system becomes weaker

Sexual activity actually contributes to your bodys proper immune functioning. You see, sex increases your levels of IgA or immunoglobulin. This increases your resistance to sickness, no sex means you arent getting the extra IgA.

2. Her libido drops or significantly increases

We are all different, for some there will be a decrease and others an increase. For some their body actually dampens their hormonal response to arousal. But as I said, everyone is different so you wont know which you are until you give it a try.

3. She  becomes more stressed

Sex is something a lot of people use to help cut back their stress levels. Some studies have even found that higher blood pressure related to stress is linked with those who do not have sexual intercourse regularly. Regular intercourse is associated with better psychological and physiological function.

4. She may have trouble sleeping.

According to Dr. Laura Berman, the director of the Berman Center for Womens Sexual Health having sex before you go to bed could be the key to preventing insomnia. Berman spoke during an interview with Tucker Carlson (The Situation with Tucker Carlson MSNBC) and she says that when we have sex we release neuropeptides known as endorphins. These help us cut back on stress and get a better nights sleep.

5. She might experience memory loss on some level depending on your age.

Sexual experience causes cell growth in the hippocampus according to a study done back in 2010. This meaning it could prevent the decay that ultimately leads up to memory loss or even dementia. It also allows...


WW3: Nuclear War At Any Moment As US Responds With War Drills "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Mac Slavo;

Kim Jong-Uns most recent missile launch sparked fears of a third world war. Responding directly to that missile launch, the United States has participated in war drills with South Korea.

The operation dubbed Vigilant Ace was branded as an open, all-out provocation by North Korea. The training drills are scheduled to last five days, aiming to improve South Korea and the USs wartime readiness. Impressive video from the initial drills shows F-16 jets training in the sky high above the North Korea border. The exercise is the largest ever co-operative drill. The US and South Korea used 230 aircraft, including 24 stealth fighter jets preparing for a war on the Korean peninsula.

Around 12,000 military personnel are taking part in the drills. North Korea has also warned that these provocative military drills may lead to a nuclear war at any moment. The North Korean warning came straight from propagandized state-run media, which also declared: The US and South Korean puppet warmongers would be well advised to bear in mind that their DPRK-targeted military drill will be as foolish as an act precipitating their self-destruction.

The White Houses national security adviser HR McMaster has admitted the North Korean newspaper threats are credible and more government officials now believe that a war looms. I think its increasing every day, which means that we are in a race to be able to solve this problem. There are ways to address this problem short of armed conflict, but it is a race because hes getting closer and closer, and theres not much time left,...


Simulation of the North Korean attack Possible Beginning of a War? "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Alison Morris; Facts You Didn't Know

North Korean president Kim Jong Un, after the latest testing of a ballistic missile, stated that his country is now a nuclear power in the true sense of the word.

North Koreas latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) showed that the country now has the capability to strike the entire United States and theres little that the USA can do to stop it.

The test revealed just how dramatically North Koreas missile program has advanced over the past year, and how much more of a threat the country now poses to the US. In April, Pyongyang tested a missile that blew up just seconds after launch. Tuesdays missile, however, flew more than 10 times higher than the International Space Station, and was in the air for 54 minutes before landing near Japan.

The North Korean missile advances are happening despite pressure from the international community, which continues to slap economic sanctions on the country. President Donald Trump is expected to impose new financial restrictions on Pyongyang Wednesday, just one week after the US increased penalties when it put North Korea back on the state sponsors of terrorism list.

On top of that, North Korea tested its most powerful nuclear bomb ever on September 3, and it may have stockpiled up to 60 nuclear weapons. Making matters worse, the US military believes North Korea already has the capability to miniaturize a nuclear weapon and fit it onto that missile, which it could then use to hit major US cities like Washington, DC.

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

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

These results provide strong preclinical justification for combining cisplatin with eugenol as therapeutic approach for triple-negative breast cancers. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Mol Carcinog. 2017 Oct 26. Epub 2017 Oct 26. PMID: 29073729 Abstract Title:  Eugenol potentiates cisplatin anti-cancer activity through inhibition of ALDH-positive breast cancer stem cells and the NF-B signaling pathway. Abstract:  Triple-negative breast tumors are very aggressive and contain relatively high proportion of cancer stem cells, and are resistant to chemotherapeutic drugs including cisplatin. To overcome these limitations, we combined eugenol, a natural polyphenolic molecule, with cisplatin to normalize cisplatin mediated toxicity and potential drug resistance. Interestingly, the combination treatment provided significantly greater cytotoxic and pro-apoptotic effects as compared to treatment with eugenol or cisplatin alone on several triple-negative breast cancer cells both in vitro and in vivo. Furthermore, adding eugenol to cisplatin potentiated the inhibition of breast cancer stem cells by inhibiting ALDH enzyme activity and ALDH-positive tumor initiating cells. We provide also clear evidence that eugenol potentiates cisplatin inhibition of the NF-B signaling pathway. Indeed, the binding of NF-B to its cognate binding sites present in the promoters of IL-6 and IL-8 was dramatically reduced, which led to potent down-regulation of the IL-6 and IL-8 cytokines upon combination treatment relative to the single agents. Similar effects were observed on proliferation, inhibition of epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition and stemness markers in tumor xenografts. These results provide strong preclinical justification for combining cisplatin with eugenol as therapeutic approach for triple-negative breast cancers through targeting the resistant ALDH-positive cells and inhibiting the NF-B pathway.

The First Way We Can Contribute

The first way we can contribute is to remain calm ourselves.  Those carrying out the interdiction of the cabal want the general population to remain calm. Contributing to that, modelling it is how we can best help them.

Our channeled messages have been talking about self-mastery for years, reassuring us that were immortal (we survive death and so neednt fear it), that all this will pass, and that were attended and assisted by spirit guides and masters. Theyve explained to us what would be happening and now it is.

This is the time for people to show the degree of self-mastery that the messages have been discussing with us.

(Who am I to say that? I ask myself. No, it needs to be said.)

Our calmness amid the storm would be a solid contribution to the overall white-hat effort.

The Second Way

Prophet Who Says He Visited Heaven After Heart Attack Charged With Running Prostitution Ring

A 55-year-old self-styled prophet from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, who said he went to heaven one Christmas after a heart attack, was charged Wednesday for using the telephone number of his ministry to run a house of prostitution which he fronted as a massage parlor.  Prosecutors in Tulsa County allege the Rev. Walter Eugene Brazington Jr., of the All Nations Ministry Evangelistic Team attempted to encourage, induce or persuade women to become inmates of a house of prostitution, according to

documents cited by the Tulsa World. He was also charged with possession of a firearm while in the commission of a felony.  Tiffany Ann Roach, 40, an HIV positive woman who investigators caught negotiating with a client at the prophets business, was also arrested.

Benjamin Fulford (Full Report) - U.S. military to declare martial law as DOJ, FBI criminality exposed - December 4, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

U.S. military to declare martial law as DOJ, FBI criminality exposed
December 4, 2017

The U.S. military government, known to the world as the administration of President Donald Trump, is about to declare martial law, Pentagon sources say. The Cabal has been checkmated, as Trump is ready to federalize the National Guard in case of riots or civil unrest, Pentagon sources say, adding that FEMA camps will be used to house mass arrests, and Gitmo may house high-value targets while military tribunals will dispatch them swiftly.

Such radical action is necessary, Because of corrupt judges appointed by [former U.S. President Barack] Obama and a Congress stacked with shills for Israel, so Trump may be forced to declare martial law to impose military justice, is how one Pentagon source put the situation. The FBI, for example, has been actively covering up the cabal slaughter of hundreds of Americans in Las Vegas using G4S mercenaries, multiple sources say.

Trump was probably referring to this upcoming purge in the following Tweet: After years of Comey, with the phony and dishonest Clinton investigation (and more) running the FBI, its reputation is in tattersworst in History! But fear not, we will bring it back to greatness.

The other big news from last week is that the U.S. Dover Air Force base was hit last with a nuclear weapon or the equivalent. The attack was described as a magnitude 4.4 earthquake in the corporate media. However, the earthquake had all the hallmarks of a nuclear or beam weapon attack in that its epicenter was a military base, it was shallow, and the seismograph shows a huge one-off instant quake, not the sort of shaking buildup seen in natural quakes. It can be seen in the link below.


Hop phytochemicals have potential role in metabolic syndrome prevention and therapy. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Molecules. 2017 Oct 19 ;22(10). Epub 2017 Oct 19. PMID: 29048380 Abstract Title:  Hop Phytochemicals and Their Potential Role in Metabolic Syndrome Prevention and Therapy. Abstract:  Historically, hop cones (Humulus lupulus) have been used since ancient times as a remedy for many ailments and, as a source of polyphenols and bitter acids, is very effective in the treatment of metabolic syndrome (MS). Hop flavonoids, particularly xanthohumol (XN), are substances with hypoglycemic, antihyperlipidemic, and antiobesity activities. Iso--acids (IAA) and matured hop bitter acids (MHBA) improve health by influencing lipid metabolism, glucose tolerance, and body weight. The modulatory effect of IAA and MHBA on lipid metabolism may also be responsible for a loss in body weight. These results suggest promising applications for IAA, MHBA, and XN in humans, particularly in the prevention of diet-induced obesity and diabetes.

Heavy winds and dry air could extend California wildfire for weeks

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 12/08/2017 Riding on Small Dips "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price has been on a tear and seems unstoppable in its climb.
  • Price has barely retraced from its rally, but potential dips on short-term time frames can be spotted.
  • But with bitcoin price surging to unprecedented levels at an unprecedented pace, theres a rising risk of a tumble as it goes.

Bitcoin price is once again setting new records but the chance for sharp profit-taking moves is building as it climbs.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA across all time frames, indicating that bullish momentum is very strong. The gap between the moving averages has also been widening to reflect strengthening bullish pressure.

On the 15-minute chart, it can be seen that bitcoin price is trading above an ascending trend line. Price has just made another bounce to new highs but might be due for another dip soon.

Stochastic is indicating overbought conditions once more and is starting to turn lower, possibly drawing some sellers back in. RSI has a bit more room to climb so bitcoin price might break out of the tiny consolidation to set new highs yet again.

Market Factors

Anticipation is building up over the launch of CBOE bitcoin futures, drawing an influx of demand from retail and institutional investors. Apart from that, the fact that bitcoin is hogging the financial headlines once more on its stellar climb has drawn more market interest.

Of course, as it establishes one new high after another, bitcoin price is seen as being more and more vulnerable to a crash. Nonetheless, price seems indifferent from these naysayers and continues climbing, especially as there seems to be no catalysts that could lead to unwinding.

CME and Nasdaq are also prepping to launch their bitcoin futures products soon, which means more availability and higher volumes. In the past, this has consistently led to strong gains and this phenomenon could carry on until the situation changes.

Xanthohumol significantly reduced cholangiocarcinoma growth. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Oncotarget. 2017 Oct 20 ;8(50):88069-88078. Epub 2017 Sep 30. PMID: 29152142 Abstract Title:  Antiproliferative and apoptotic effects of xanthohumol in cholangiocarcinoma. Abstract:  Cholangiocarcinoma remains the second most prevalent hepatic neoplasm in the United States with a 5-year survival rate of less than 10%. Currently, no systemic therapy has demonstrated efficacy. Therefore, an urgent need for the identification of molecularly targeted compound(s) remains. The Notch signaling pathway has been shown to be dysregulated in cholangiocarcinoma, exhibiting hyperactivity while also possibly mediating chemotherapeutic resistance. We analyzed the effects of xanthohumol, a prenylated chalcone, on cholangiocarcinoma proliferation utilizing human cholangiocarcinoma cell lines CCLP1, SG-231 and CC-SW-1 while gaining insight into the associated mechanism. Xanthohumol potently reduced cellular proliferation, colony formation, and cell confluency in all three cell lines. Xanthohumol induced cell cycle arrest as well as apoptosis through the reduction of cell cycle regulatory proteins as well as an increase in pro-apoptotic markers (cleaved poly ADP ribose polymerase, cleaved caspase-3) and a decrease in anti-apoptotic markers (X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis and survivin). At the molecular level, xanthohumol reduced Notch1 and AKT expression in a step-wise and time-dependent fashion, with Notch1 reductions preceding AKT. Additionally, xanthohumol reduced cholangiocarcinoma growth in both CCLP-1 and SG-231 derived mice xenografts. In summary, we show that xanthohumol significantly reduced cholangiocarcinoma growth through the Notch1/AKT signaling axis. Furthermore, known pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of XN supports continued development of treatment for cholangiocarcinoma.

Xanthohumol inhibited angiogenesis by suppressing NF-B activity in pancreatic cancer. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Cancer Sci. 2017 Nov 9. Epub 2017 Nov 9. PMID: 29121426 Abstract Title:  Xanthohumol inhibits angiogenesis by suppressing nuclear factor-B activation in pancreatic cancer. Abstract:  Xantohumol, a prenylated chalcone from hops (Humulus lupulus L.), has been shown to inhibit proliferation in some cancers. However, little is known regarding the effects of xanthohumol in pancreatic cancer. We have previously reported that activation of the transcription factor nuclear factor-B (NF-B) plays a key role in angiogenesis in pancreatic cancer. In this study, we investigated whether xanthohumol inhibited angiogenesis by blocking NF-B activation in pancreatic cancer in vitro and in vivo. We initially confirmed that xanthohumol significantly inhibited proliferation and NF-B activation in pancreatic cancer cell lines. Next, we demonstrated that xanthohumol significantly suppressed the expression of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and interleukin-8 (IL-8) at both the mRNA and protein levels in pancreatic cancer cell lines. We also found that coculture with BxPC-3 cells significantly enhanced tube formation in human umbilical vein endothelial cells, and treatment with xanthohumol significantly blocked this effect. In vivo, the volume of BxPC-3 subcutaneous xenograft tumors was significantly reduced in mice treated with weekly intraperitoneal injections of xanthohumol. Immunohistochemistry revealed that xanthohumol inhibited Ki-67 expression, CD31-positive microvessel density, NF-B p65 expression, and VEGF and IL-8 levels. Taken together, these results showed, for the first time, that xanthohumol inhibited angiogenesis by suppressing NF-B activity in pancreatic cancer.

These 20+ Photos of Californias Wildfires Are Straight Out of an Apocalyptic Movie "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Once again, southern California is engulfed in flames. So far, four fires have scorched a combined 116,000 acres in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties. The most frightening blaze is the Thomas fire, which grew to 90,000 acres, or 140.6 square miles, as of Wednesday evening. Unfortunately, none are close to being contained, according to the Los Angeles fire department.

According to The New York Times, roadways are shut and nearly 200,000 people have been told to evacuate their homes. Because the skies are black with smoke, hundreds of schools have been closed for the week. 

So far, more than 300 homes, businesses, and other buildings have been destroyed. Due to heavy fire and smoke, the 101 freeway the main coastal route north from Los Angeles has been closed.

At least three firefighters have been injured and hours ago, the first body was found in a fire-swept territory. According to weather experts, the wind gusts could reach 80 mph today, which could exacerbate the natural disaster.

For days, emergency crews have worked to contain the fires. Theyve battled brisk winds, steep terrain, and fatigue from minimal sleep. Their efforts are applaudable but, unfortunately, arent quite enough. Said Armando Hogan, an assistant Los Angeles fire chief: Ive got to be honest, were concerned about everything.

Fortunately, the firefighters are not giving up. Thousands have been dispatched to the state and will continue battling the blaze until it is extinguished. As you enjoy your safe and secure home this holiday season, count your blessings and consider donating to organizations that will help victims rebuild their lives after the fires are contained.
