Vitamin Shoppe Sales Plummet 8.3% "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Secaucus, NJ Citing a heated competitive omnichannel retail environment, particularly in the sports supplement category, Vitamin Shoppe posted Q2 sales of $304.8 million ($6.73 loss per share) for a total decline of 8.3% over 2016.

The challenges are clear, said ceo Colin Watts, who told analysts 70% of the decline was in the sports product category. We have taken decisive actions to improve our performance directly focused on customer acquisition, price/value and customer retention.

It became increasingly clear our level of marketing spend and promotion are not enough he said, to stave off competition from Amazon, and GNC. Increases in grassroots store marketing spending are planned along with an increase in paid search and social media tied into store events.

Watts identified several pricing initiatives the company has tested and will roll out. One, called the KVI (Key Value Item) strategy reduces prices across the most competitive and price elastic products, with more weight in the sports category. In test, he said, KVI pricing raised store traffic and overall basket size resulting in better margins.

Competitive price match branded as Shop with Confidence will allow store associates to meet a competitors price on the spot and not lose the sale to a smart phone. During a four-month pilot, Watts said, unit sales rose 5%  transactions were up 2%, and margins increased.

Subscription auto-delivery is rolling out in-store and online to help with long-term customer retention. In test, average sales were up 60% after the first three months, Watts said. The program will include a 10% discount on best-selling products, more loyalty points, a discovery box and the ability to easily change whats delivered on the fly.

Vitamin Shoppe is also optimistic about new formats it is testing that include a kombucha on tap bar and fit freezer and cooler. All the stores are seeing a lift since they adopted the new format, although some are still falling short of positive comparable store sales.

The companys North Bergen, N.J. distribution center will close by years end and the company expects to close five to 10 stores a year.

As for the unprecedented promotion by the competition of sports protein, supplements and bars, Watts said it eventually has to end. We dont believe this can continue forever. Its a category under siege right now. sales were down 20%, which Watts attributed to problems with search-engine optimization and a pullback on paid search spending. Also, 8% of online customers chose to pick up products in stores, which assigned those sales to brick-and-mortar.

A VR Exhibition Pays Tribute to a Long-Gone Vegas Casino "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Screen capture of a VR work by Justin Berry (courtesy Essex Flowers)Screen capture of a VR work by Justin Berry (all images courtesy Essex Flowers)

From Jean Baudrillard and Hunter S. Thompson to Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, and Steven Izenour, Las Vegas has a way of inspiring imaginative, expansive, and magical or, some might say, virtual thinking. One of Las Vegas Boulevards original hotel-casino complexes, the Sands, serves as a shorthand for Sin Citys hyperreal qualities in The Sands, a virtual reality (VR) exhibition opening on August 12 at Essex Flowers.

Like that legendary entertainment complex, which famously hosted Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and other members of the Rat Pack serving as the setting for the original Oceans 11 film and in the 1960s was bought and expanded by billionaire inventor Howard Hughes, The Sands aims to offer a virtual buffet of aesthetic experiences. Curated by members of the Blended Reality Crew, works by the 15 participating artists will be on view in a virtual, one-to-one scale recreation of Essex Flowers that visitors will explore in VR as they walk around the empty brick-and-mortar gallery space.

The display will rotate throughout the shows nine-day run, creating new juxtapositions and interactions between different works. Visitors will be able to interact with and move through the virtual works, allowing for unexpected and intimate experiences. After all, to paraphrase a clich, what happens in VR stays in VR.

Higher Amounts of Sugar, Salt and Fat In Gluten-Free Products Over Conventional "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Mae Chan

A new study has found gluten-free products are often not as healthy as their conventional counterparts.

A gluten-free, casein-free diet may lead to improvements in behavior and many physiological symptoms. Why is there so much attention now being put upon gluten sensitivities?

According to research from Netherlands consumer association, Consumentenbond, gluten-free foods are frequently higher in fat sugar and salt and lower in fibre than comparable mainstream products that contain gluten.

The Consumentenbond highlighted crispbread maker Wasas gluten-free crispbread contains six times as much fat as the companys whole grain variety; Koopmans gluten-free pancake mix is twice as salty as its 6-Grain pancake mix; and Peijnenburgs gluten free breakfast cake has 30 kilocals more per 100 grams than the regular breakfast cake.

At the same time, because flour is not used in gluten-free production, products tested were also found to be lower in dietary fibre than their gluten-containing counterparts.


Proof Surfaces Insurance Company Pays Massive Bonuses to Doctors for Vaccinating Babies "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Alex Pietrowski

Here is a perfect example of the tactics that Big Pharma uses to incentivize doctors to push vaccines on the public. Insurance company Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) pays pediatricians $400 for EACH fully vaccinated child under the age of 2. This means that for every 100 vaccinated patients, the doctor gets a $40,000 bonus!

BCBS outlines the incentive program for vaccinating babies in the BCBS doctor incentives booklet. Below is an image of the childhood immunization incentives page.

Mainstream Media Just Admitted Biotech Company Has Exclusive Patents on GMO Cannabis "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Matt Agorist

In 2015, the fake news website, World News Daily Report created a massive Internet hoax that still gets spread around today. The hoax claimed that Monsanto was creating a genetically modified cannabis to supply to the cannabis industry. Although its not entirely unbelievable, this was proven completely false. However, fast-forward to 2017 and GMO cannabis is now a reality which is getting coverage in the mainstream media.

In an article from Reuters this week, on biotechnology being used to lower nicotine in tobacco, the biotech company 22nd Century Group was highlighted for their work in trying to make cigarettes less addictive by genetically engineering tobacco to have less of the drug.

However, also in the article was the admission that the company has more than 200 patents that give it the ability to increase or decrease the level of nicotine in tobacco plants, as well as the level of cannabinoids in cannabis plants.

What was once fake news, is now a reality.

According to 22nd Century Group, they were granted an exclusive sublicense in the United States and a co-exclusive sublicense in the remainder of the world, excluding Canada, to patents and patent applications relating to the cannabis plant that are required for the production of cannabinoids, the major active ingredients in the cannabis plant.


Take a 90-Minute Crash Course in Design Thinking from Stanfords Design School "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

If you ask a few of today's youngsters what they want to do when they grow up, the word "design" will almost certainly come up more than once. Ask them what design itself means to them, and you'll get a variety of answers from the vaguely general to the ultra-specialized. The concept of design and of designing, and of being a designer clearly holds a strong appeal, but how to define it in a useful way that still applies in as many cases as possible?

One set of answers comes from the 90-minute "Crash Course in Design Thinking" above, a production of Stanford University's Hasso Plattner Institute of Design, or d.schoolThe Interaction Design Foundation defines design thinking as "an iterative process in which we seek to understand the user, challenge assumptions we might have, and redefine problems in an attempt to identify alternative strategies and solutions that might not be instantly apparent with our initial level of understanding." In a brief history of the subject there, Rikke Dam and Teo Siang write that "business analysts, engineers, scientists and creative individuals have been focused on the methods and processes of innovation for decades."

Stanford comes into the picture in the early 1990s, with the formation of the Design Thinking-oriented firm IDEO and its " design process modelled on the work developed at the Stanford Design School." In other words, someone using design thinking, on the job at IDEO or elsewhere, knows how to approach new, vague, or otherwise tricky problems in various sectors and work step-by-step toward solutions., with their mission to "build on methods from across the field of design to create learning experiences that help people unlock their creative potential and apply it to the world," aims to instill the principles of design thinking in its students.

The Dangerous Reasons You Should Never Give Your Baby Tylenol After Vaccines "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By the time babies reach twelve months of age, they will have received about two dozen doses of vaccines, if their parents follow the schedule recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Many parents trust the recommendations of their health care providers, who assure moms and dads vaccines are safe. These same doctors and nurses also recommend Tylenol for babies after their shots. [1]

However, countries whose infants receive the highest numbers of vaccine doses during infancy also have the highest rates of infant mortality.

Many health care providers encourage concerned parents to give their baby Tylenol to relieve pain, fever, and crying after vaccination. In just a moment, you will know why this common recommendation can be very dangerous.

Babies Amazing Survival Abilities

Babies are born with amazing abilities and protective mechanisms to help them survive and grow during the months after they are born. Many child development experts refer to this important time of mental growth as the fourth trimester. On a basic level, newborn humans are born with the rooting and sucking reflexes, instinctive survival mechanisms to help them eat. They have the parachute reflex to help them survive a fall. [2]

Babies are born already recognizing and preferring their mothers voice. In fact, within 24 hours after birth, the sound of their mothers voice activates the part of babys brain responsible for learning language. The lists of the fascinating abilities of babies are endless. [3, 4]

However, despite their amazing capacity to survive and thrive, babies bodies are not designed to handle the onslaught of injected chemicals contained in dozens of vaccine vials. policy. The CDCs one-size-fits-all vaccination schedule does not consider babies genetics, unique biology, birth weight, family medical history, or other special concerns. It also fails to recognize the amazing antibodies breastfed babies receive in their mothers milk.

One Vital Protection for Babies

Human babies are born prematurely, in a sense, before their brains are done developing. At the time of birth, our babies brains are only 30 percent of the size of the mature, adult human brain. Babies may be born helpless in order for their heads to fit through the narrow birth canal. During their first year of life, babies brains almost double in size. [5]

The human brain contains a protective gatekeeper known as the blood brain barrier. Essentially, this security system lets important substances into the brain and prevents damaging substances from reaching brain tissue. Researchers do not conclusively agree whether or not the protective blood brain barrier is fully developed at birth. [6]

This Chemotherapy Drug May Help Breast Cancer SPREAD "IndyWatch Feed Health"

An anticancer drug known as paclitaxel may actually cause breast cancer to spread to the lungs, according to the rather horrifying results of a recent study.

Earlier in 2017, a study revealed that chemotherapy may cause cellular changes in both a breast cancer mouse model and in a small number of human breast cancer sufferers.

Tsonwin Hai, a professor of biological chemistry and pharmacology, and a team of colleagues have built on this research by studying the effects of the chemotherapy drug on the spread of breast cancer cells to the lungs.

Paclitaxel is one of the first lines of defense for several types of cancer, including ovarian, breast, and lung cancer.

In the recent study, Hai and her team evaluated a rodent model as well as data from breast cancer patients to determine the ways in which paclitaxel may enable breast cancer to metastasize (spread from one part of the body to another).

The scientists found that in those who underwent chemotherapy, a gene called Atf3 which is activated by stress is over-expressed compared with individuals who did not receive the treatment.

Hai said:

This gene seems to do two things at once: essentially help distribute the seeds (cancer cells) and fertilize the soil (the lung).

Signals sent by the chemotherapy increase the number of molecular doors, or openings, which allow cancer cells to escape from the main tumor into the bloodstream, where the cells are then free to travel to other organs. [2]

Hai explained:

I think its an active processa biological change in which the cancer cells are beckoned to escape into the bloodrather than a passive process in which the cancer cells get into the bloodstream because of leaky vessels.

Likewise, paclitaxel appears to create a chain of events that makes the lung tissue a potentially fertile breeding ground for circulating cancer cells to take hold and spread.

Said Hai:

There are signals that help cancer cells enter the lungs and set up shop, that make the environment more immunologically tolerant to cancer cells.

At this point, what our study and the recent literature on chemotherapy taught us is that it is prudent to keep our mind open, realizing that chemo can help treat cancer,...

Movement to Remove Buried Lead Cables Growing in California "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Brandon Turbeville

A new movement is taking off in California seeking to reduce lead poisoning and lead pollution of both people and the environment by lead products formerly used by the communications industry.

The problems with lead in human health have been known for quite some time and have produced a variety of movements aiming to remove lead from toys, paint, and other commonly used products.

But one potential hazard that has largely gone unnoticed are lead cables used underground or placed underground for communications purposes. Early on, before lead was recognized as a danger to human health, it was widely used by a number of industries including the auto industry, telecommunications, and others.

Most of these industries experienced chronic lead poisoning of the individuals actually engaging in physical labor leading these industries to either increase their safety standards, reduce exposure, or eliminate the use of lead altogether.


A Trans Artist Breaks Down the Walls of Bathroom Stalls "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Emmett Ramstad, Youre Welcome (2016) removed gender segregated bathroom signage, replaced bathroom signage, dimensions variable (photo by Erin Young)

MINNEAPOLIS Public bathrooms are sites where private lives meet public space. Central to any space but never centered, bathrooms are incredibly necessary and tremendously fraught. Though seemingly banal and unobtrusive enough to be forgotten after use, bathrooms are simultaneously sites of danger for some. Bathrooms are also places to seek solace, take a break, have sex, do drugs. Because these activities deviate from the engineered purpose the universal need to void bathrooms are, more than ever, subject to monitoring and policing.

Artist Emmett Ramstad, a trans artist living in Minneapolis, sees public bathrooms as contested spaces emblematic of how the United States functions. Ramstads inquiry into the current politics surrounding bathrooms begins with their formal aspects the stall legs, the space underneath, the ubiquitous beige color to open a dialogue about privacy, vulnerability, mundanity, serviceability, shame and pleasure, segregation, and access. Ramstads sculpture, installations, and participatory actions unpack the architecture of social and moral codes that organize the physical space of the bathroom. He is currently working on an artist book called Quasi-Public, Semi-Private that will be released in November. When debates about bathrooms occupy the Texas legislature and tweets dictate the fates of transgender people in the military, Ramstads query is especially timely and relevant.



Do You Have Lumps Around Your Eyes? What They Mean and How To Treat Them "IndyWatch Feed Food"

The medical term used for these small lumps is palpebral xanthelasma , referring to small benign tumors or fatty lumps located around the eyelids.

Although they do not represent a serious problem, the mere fact of having them in our face represents discomfort for some people by their unsightly forms. It is often confused with pus or dirt, but is actually a deposit of fat or cholesterol.

Its onset may be a symptom of accumulation of LDL cholesterol or bad cholesterol, but it also relates to genetic causes, problems with the liver or diabetes. Consulting with the doctor will always be the most advisable solution to know how to treat the symptoms; However, it is known of various home remedies with which they can be treated with enough success.

Prenatal Exposure to Flame Retardants Linked With Lower IQ in Children "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A report in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives reveals that prenatal exposure to flame retardants may lead to lower IQ test scores in children. Further, the more of the chemicals a pregnant woman is exposed to, the more likely she is to give birth to a child with lower intelligence. [1]

In the meta-analysis, researchers calculated that every tenfold increase in exposure to flame retardants called polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) was associated with a 3.7 point decline in kids IQ test scores.

Based on that calculation, PBDEs are even more detrimental to fetuses than lead  every tenfold increase in the neurotoxin is associated with just a 7-point decline in IQ scores, by comparison.

Study co-author Tracey Woodruff said:

Even the loss of a few IQ points on a population-wide level means more children who need early interventions, and families who may face personal and economic burdens for the rest of their lives. [2]

The meta-analysis summarizes and evaluates the full collection of relevant research on the safety of PBDEs. Ten of the studies the researchers included show a link between flame retardants and intelligence.

The team analyzed an additional 9 studies that searched for an association between exposure to flame retardants and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Juleen Lam, an associate research scientist at the University of California San Francisco, said the 9 papers dont provide enough evidence of a connection between the chemicals and ADHD. [1]

However, the link between flame retardants and intelligence is undeniable, according to Lam.

The evidence strongly suggests that PBDEs are damaging kids intelligence.

Knowing this, Lam said, children should be protected from these chemicals to prevent intelligence loss.

She added:

Were really seeing this as a wake-up call to policymakers.

Researchers are trying to tease out how PBDEs lower intelligence. So far, the evidence suggests the chemicals impair the activity of the endocrine system, the bodys systems of hormone-producing glands which play a role in the bodys circadian rhythm, sexual development, metabolism, and other functions. When a woman is pregnant, her endocrine system heavily influences the development of her fetus brain.

The 10 Tricks With Aspirin That Every Woman Has To Know. It Changes Your Life Completely "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Aspirin is one of the most famous and most used drugs worldwide. This pill is used to combat different cardiovascular problems and the like. However, aspirin is good for many other things.

In this article we want to show you other alternative uses that aspirin has that will surprise you.

Insect bites

It is able to prevent infections and to deflate the area. Simply dissolve an aspirin in a spoon of water and rub it on the bite.

Lightens the skin of your armpits

Aspirin also has the ability to lighten the whole of your skin in the armpits. To do this, we must crush 2 tablets and dissolve in half a cup of warm water. Then we will apply it directly on the skin of the armpits and let them act for 1 hour. Finally we will rinse the area with plenty of water.

Now we will apply this paste in the hard areas of the foot and its surroundings. Then cover the foot with a warm cloth and then cover with a plastic bag.

After 10 minutes have passed since the application, we will remove all the wrappings. Finally, exfoliate the feet with the help of a pumice stone or a vegetable sponge.

365 Challenge: Day 150 Surprised "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Surprised: feeling or showing an unexpected or astonishing event, fact, or thing


When I thought about todays 365 Daily Challenge word, the first thing that came to mind was the fact that Id created 150 posts already, which was a bit of a surprise. But then when I checked to verify I hadnt used any word similar to surprised, I received another shock. WordPress never emailed me to tell me I hit my one year blog anniversary over the weekend. Seriously, whats that all about?

Technically, I created this blog in August 2016, but I only posted a few things about Watching a Glass Shatter. Hey, thats another surprise its one year this week since I started the outline for that novel. And if everything lines up, I might have a major step to announce for the book later this month. SURPRISE again.

Wow this is an appropriate word for today. While the blog went live in August 2016, I didnt post anything or even connect with anyone else until early 2017. It was just for me in the beginning as a place to include book reviews and details on my own book. Maybe WordPress is waiting until February 2018 to inform me of my blog anniversary. Fickle little thing oh well it&...


Study Links Diets High in Saturated Fat to Lung Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Researchers point out a correlation between saturated fat consumption and lung cancer, suggesting that people who eat a diet high in saturated fat (found in butter and beef) have a greater risk of developing lung cancer than those who eat a low-fat diet. Smoking increases the risk even further. [1]

Researchers found that study participants who ate the most total fat and saturated fat were 14% more likely to go on to have the disease, compared to those who limited their fat consumption. The risk also increased 15% among current and former smokers, the study found.

Study co-author Danxia Yu, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, said the very best way to prevent lung cancer is to simply not smoke, but added that eating a healthy diet most likely lowers the risk, too.

She said:

Specifically, our findings suggest that increasing polyunsaturated fat intake while reducing saturated fat intake, especially among smokers and recent quitters, may (help prevent) not only cardiovascular disease but also lung cancer.

According to the American Heart Association (AHA), people can help prevent cardiovascular disease by eating either a Mediterranean-style diet, or the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet. Both types of eating patterns emphasize cooking with vegetable oils containing unsaturated fats, and copious amounts of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, and poultry.

Both diets encourage limiting red meats, added sugars, and salt. There is, however, evidence to suggest that high-fat healthy oils such as olive oil are safe to consume as part of a Mediterranean-style diet.

For the study, published July 25, 2017 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, researchers looked at data on 1,445,850 participants from a pooled analysis of 10 prospective cohort studies from the U.S., Europe, and Asia. [2]

The authors wrote:

Modifying dietary fat intake (i.e., replacing saturated fat with polyunsaturated fat) may reduce lung cancer risk, particularly among smokers and for squamous cell and small cell carcinoma.

In fact, substituting 5% of calories from saturated fat with unsaturated fat was linked with a 16% lower risk of small cell lung cancer, and 17% lower odds of squamous cell carcinoma. [1]

However, the study was limited in 3 ways.

6 Ways that Developmental Trauma Impacts Identity Formation "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The National Child Traumatic Stress Network states more than half of children aged 2-5 have experienced a traumatic stressor during their lifetime. Common stressors include physical trauma, abuse, neglect, accidents, and exposure either to domestic or community violence. When left untreated, these childhood traumas can present as a developmental trauma in our adult lives.

As we grow and develop, this trauma can greatly impact our identity formation. It can cause significant developmental delays and consequences throughout the childhood, adolescent and adult years including difficulty creating and maintaining personal relationships and problems with substance abuse.

Here Is 6 Ways Developmental Trauma Impacts Identity Formation:

  1. Attraction to Destructive Relationships

When a child grows up with trauma at the hands of their trusted caregivers, this can impact the way in which they form relationships with others. They may find themselves feeling distant or emotionally unavailable, they may respond by developing narcissistic tendencies, or they may feel as though they need to find partners that they can fix and rescue. The more often they find themselves following this pattern, getting into destructive relationships, the more that they find themselves locked into their current identity, unable to grow and move forward with their lives.


  1. Difficulty with Emotions

Children are ill equipped to deal with the intense emotions that come from childhood trauma, and some may respond by experiencing a sense of emotional numbness. Rather than attempting to identify and deal with the individual emotions at the time, they move to a state in which they believe that they dont have any emotions at all. This numbed stated the carries into their adult lives, denying them the ability to handle the emotions associated with intimacy and relationships.


  1. Loss of Childhood

While many people can reflect on their childhood with fond memories and numerous stories to share, those who have experienced developmental trauma may find that they are unable to recall large periods of their lives. The small memories that they do retain, often referred to as flashbulb memories may be vivid however the large holes in their memory means leaves them with an unclear and sometimes confusing story....


#752 "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

The North Sea

It's strange
how such a cold and formidable thing
reminds me of you,
its icy breakers failing
on a beach we've never walked on
nor likely ever will.

And yet perhaps that is it.
That after all these miles of travelling
defeat should come
at the final moment.

Aberdeen, 29 February 1995
This is the only poem of mine where Ive felt the need to record the place it was written. I lived in Aberdeen for six months and it was probably the worst six months of my life. Ive sworn Ill never go back to the Granite City and I never will. This is the only thing I wrote while I was there and it makes me shudder every time I read it. I remember standing looking out from the harbour and how cold it was. The you in the poem is F. I called her once from there but never spoke. I just wanted to hear her voice and I still can. It was a nice voice, soft, a little smoky. In March I returned to Glasgow and Ive never left. 

Two years later a strange American woman took a chance, got on a plane and probably saved my life.

Achilles weaknesses actually trashy TV and Lloyd-Webber musicals, files reveal "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Legendary Greek warrior Achilles was a sucker for a good chick flick, and regularly enjoyed binge-watching Jeremy Kyle whilst eating Arctic roll with Angel Delight, it has been revealed today.

Newly released files from the Athens National Archives, made available today under the 3300 year rule, pour scorn on the reports in the Greek tabloid press that Achilles might have a dodgy heel. Suggestions that Achilles was dipped in the river Styx by his mum, and she missed his heel are nothing more than FAKE STORYTELLING and RHETORIC a GREEK MYTH, continues the report. Our surveillance suggests instead that Achilles weaknesses are more to do with chocolate-based products and that crappy retro lyre music that everyone seems to love at the moment.

The warrior also has a fascination with that new science-fiction musical Jesus Christ Superstar, continued the dossier. Whilst we all know this is just futuristic nonsense, he will break into a surprisingly good rendition of Whats the Buzz, Tell Me Whats-a- Happening given half an opportunity and any sort of audience.

To exploit his weaknesses, the report concludes that the Trojans should stop trying to land the million-to-one shot of planting an arrow in Achilles heel during battle. Instead, we should send our Trojan princess Polyxena in, and get her to settle down under the duvet with Achilles watching Sleepless in Seattle, with some salted popcorn and Hersheys Cookies and Cream. The phone-in scene with Tom Hanks, his son and Meg Ryan has him in pieces every time.


sewing: rayon charlie caftan "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

This post is written by Erin of Erin Always.

I had some grand plans initially to modify it to be nursing-friendly, but then I just got too excited to finish it that I left that on the sideline for now (But if someone wants to work that out and send me a quick message letting me know how, that would be greeeeeat. :)

I know that many people have been loving the Charlie Caftan since its release, but I must say that I think that the pattern and this Art Gallery Paradise Woodlands rayon is absolutely the most amazing combination ever!! Read on for more details.

First, the pattern.

This is the first Closet Case Files pattern that I have ever put together but it wont be the last. The instructions are great, and there is a sew-along on the blog, which I would recommend reading as you sew for extra clarity and color photos!

The pattern comes with three different views, and I chose View C which is the maxi length skirt, gathered bodice, extra wide kimono sleeves, and tie back.


This dress in this fabric is just glorious!! The rayon is so soft and sits so lightly on top of your skin, and the maxi length just makes it feel extra glamorous! It just feels like a special dress.

Furthermore, I am 5 months postpartum and the below the bust gathering is incredibly forgiving, particularly in a fabric with so much liquid drape. Also it is almost impossibl...

45 Facts That Sound Like Huge Lies but Are Actually Completely True "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Have you ever come across a so-called fact that seemed so outrageous that there is no possible way that it could be true? Our world is such an incredible, diverse and unpredictable place, and with the constant advancement of technology and science, and the continued discoveries by historians and architects, there is no possible way any one person could know everything!

Here is a collection of 45 crazy facts that will blow your mind:


  1. A can of ordinary Coke sinks in water, while a can of Diet Coke floats to the surface. (Fact)


  1. North Korea and Finland are separated by only one country. (Fact)


  1. It literally rains diamonds on Saturn and Jupiter. (Fact)


  1. If we were capable of hearing noises lower than 20Hz, we would be able to hear our own muscles contracting. (Fact)


  1. The heart of a blue whale is so huge that a human child could easily swim through its arteries. (Fact)

  1. One of 10 Icelanders will author and publish a book at least once in his or her lifetime. (Fact)


  1. If you imagine that the Sun is a human cell, then, by size comparison, the Milky Way galaxy would be like the United States. (Fact)


  1. 99% of the energy used by a microwave is consumed in standby mode and not during heating. (Fact)


  1. The fingerprints of a koala bear are indistinguishable from the fingerprints of a human, even when studied under an electron microscope. (Fact)


Video Games and the Brain "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A new article looked at the effect of playing video games on the brain. Its results confirm what was previously suspected from prior research. First, it is another demonstration of use-dependent plasticity in the brain. Further, it supports a direct relationship between the types of activity in which people engage and increases or decreases in the respective parts of the brain. And finally it supports the inverse relationship between the hippocampus and caudate nucleus with regard to different learning strategies.


Are We Living in A Schizophrenic Society? "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Each individual person in this world is unique in their own way, but as a diverse group of people, we make a lot of the same decisions and think the same way as each other.

Its like we constantly have to have the approval of a thousand people who are equal to us. We all work so hard for the same reason; yet, it exhausts and depresses us all. We are stuck in an endless cycle of unmet standards that is causing massive amounts of depression and self-hatred.

Society today has become a thriving social food chain that repeats itself over and over. We all wish people would stop being so materialistic, yet we still judge other people. We socially isolate those who are obese, yet we all still eat processed and fast foods. There are even many different environmental preservation groups working to restore the health of the Earth, yet millions of people still toss trash out the window. As a whole, humanity seems to be at a crossroads in itself.

We are living in an amoral free-for-all deathmatch against each other. We beat each other down in order to make ourselves to the top. We live in a world that promotes justice and peace at the same time. It has led to a split brain society. We conform to the mass amounts of lies and standards set by government officials and big corporations who make money off of us. We either accepted the truths or deal with the inconvenient facts. This has become a reality that not everyone can bear, thus some people have resorted to complete refusal of open mindedness. We live in a blissful society because ignorance is bliss.

We are all unique people who have their own perception of the universe. It all depends on the way you look at things, and just like a schizophrenic brain, all the different pieces begin to crumble when united under one human perceptual experience.

11 Deadly Drugs The Government Says Are Safer Than Weed "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Cannabis is a revolutionary natural medicine that can be used to treat pretty much any health issue. Not a single person has ever died from marijuana, yet the government continues to negate the real truth.

The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has still refused to reschedule marijuana from a Schedule I category, even after many appeals. In fact, the DEA still claims that cocaine, fentanyl, and meth is safer than marijuana. As ridiculous as this sounds, its true. This is an obvious glimpse into how much the big pharma really controls our government. They cant tax a natural ingredient, therefore, they cant make money off of it. In fact, it gets in the way of the money they already make. The big pharma cant have anything getting in the way of their money.

The fact that a natural ingredient is classified as a Schedule I drug, stating that it has no medicinal benefits and is deadly is purely ridiculous. Yet, not a single person has ever managed to die from marijuana. Its purely impossible, and the denial of medical science by our government shows how weak it really is. You wont believe what they say is safer than marijuana!

Benzodiazepines, Schedule IV

Benzos are a psychoactive drug that treats anxiety and panic attacks. Also known as Xanax and Valium, Benzos are responsible for the deaths of over eight thousand Americans!

Cocaine, Schedule II

Below is an incredibly deadly street drug that has claimed the lives of thousands annually.

Death By Placebo "IndyWatch Feed Health"

As Robert Whitaker pointed out in Anatomy of an Epidemic, biological psychiatric treatment of depression has had disastrous long-term consequences as evidenced by steadily rising rates of severe depression, disability from depression, and suicide, since the 1990s. But is it antidepressants themselves that caused this? Antidepressants were proven to usually work only via the placebo effect1. So wouldnt it be illogical to suggest that although any mood improvement they produce is not from an actual chemical effect, any mood worsening that users experience is from a direct chemical effect? And isnt blaming the worsening of antidepressant users on chemical imbalances caused by these drugs similar to blaming depression on chemical imbalances in the first place?

This theory may thus inadvertently/needlessly encourage clients to continue blaming sadness on bad chemicals, when theres a more obvious explanation for the worsening:

Doctors (and friends, family, therapists, government agencies, television commercials) instill confidence that antidepressants will fix a persons chemical imbalance, so they do, at first. In fact, just as some people are thereby tricked into feeling happy, other people are probably tricked into feeling too happy (manicky). But fooling a person into thinking theyve found a quick solution to all their troubles in a pill fakes them out these placebo benefits cant last, since the real issues that are saddening them are still there. When this benefit fade occurs, they can crash from their high, and the higher the high, the lower the crash. Hyping placebos to be miracle pills thus builds up false hopes, which sets a person up for big letdowns that can lead to suicide.

When this occurs, antidepressant users may realize that depression is a medically treatable disease is a lie, and may drop out to instead explore and work on their underlying issues. If they do return to the psychiatrist, theyll be urged to try another antidepressant. But this same cycle will repeat itself with every new wonder drug tried each time reality sets back in. This is why a 2004 survey found that a third of respondents had tried at least 9 different antidepressants (nearly all of them), but only 6% needed just one. Due to wasting all their time and effort on futile attempts to fix fake chemical imbalances instead of addressing their real issues (since there supposedly are none), their issues will persist and build up. This will lead to their becoming increasingly demoralized, hopeless, and potentially suicidal as years go by. So the acceptance of having depression, especially by people who are s...

Adopting Persona
(of) An Ancestor


Insert your brown body into the negative space.
The space between four bodies.
Is the space closed if I touch you?
Black walled gallery.
Ive been breathing my entire life.
Spilled cold water.
The house is outside. Im in the house.
If you step outside, you are in the world.
Shatter glass. Steeped light. Im allergic.
If air touches my lungs they fill.
I want empty lungs.
High beams. Sky walkers.
Who here can walk on air?
I can but eyes see space.
I ran through the door. It closed.
Can you unlock the door? I forgot my keys.
Rub mint into a shea bowl.
Moisture originates. Leaf darkens.
There is space between cell bars.
Sometimes I look through and walk outside.
Notice the use of black space.
Gravity pulls liquid onto floor.
The hallway. Watch, I can run fast.
You watching? Im going to go.
Look, I ran and came back before you could notice.
Where did I run? Unlock the cell and I can show you.
Hold a deer by its throat.
Empty the contents of its mouth into your hands.
Coarse squares of crust and crystal.
Youd pick a square with a spit-wet finger.
Sit evenly on the chair. Dont move.
Filtering bronchi. Fine rub seasoning.
Dust, its transportable.
I am already a clich.
Can you close the window for some air?
The pores of our cells close open.
There is no breeze...

25,000+ 78RPM Records Now Professionally Digitized & Streaming Online: A Treasure Trove of Early 20th Century Music "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Every recording medium works as a metonym for its era: the term LP conjures up associations with a broad musical period of classic rock n roll, soul, doo-wop, R&B, funk, jazz, disco etc.; we talk of the CD era, dominated by dance music and hip-hop; the 45 makes us think of jukeboxes, diners, and sock-hops; and the cassette, well... at least one subgenre of music, what John Peel called shambling, jangly, lo-fi pop, came to be known by the name C86, the title of an NME compilation, short for Cassette, 1986. (Readers of the magazine had to clip coupons and send money by postal mail to receive a copy of the tape.)

Soon, however, fewer and fewer people will remember the age of the 78rpm record, the preferred vehicle for the music of the early 20th century. From classical and opera to blues, bluegrass, swing, ragtime, gospel, Hawaiian, and holiday novelties the 78 epitomizes the sounds of its heyday as much as any of the media mentioned above.

While cassettes recently made a nostalgic comeback, and turntables are found in every big box store, were generally not equipped to play back 78s. These are brittle records made from shellac, a resin secreted by beetles. They were often played on appliances that doubled as quality parlor furniture.

Thanks now to the Internet Archive, that stalwart of digital cataloguing and curation, we can play twenty five thousand 78s and immerse ourselves in the early 20th century, whether for research purposes or pure enjoyment. Previous efforts at preservation have resto...

How to Use Garden Produce to Bulk Up Your Prepper Pantry "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Many of you are undoubtedly beginning to harvest some veggies from the garden, and many of you generous samaritans are giving away extra stuff.  You may want to reconsider that for a time, and consider dehydrating your extra produce to add to your prepper pantry.

There are as many types of dehydrators as there are words on this page.  The most important thing you can do with your dehydrator (besides ensuring that it works) is to put it to work.  A dehydrator packed in the box with its instructions, safe on your shelf is not doing you any good.  In addition to this, there are a ton of plans for solar dehydrators all over the internet, and articles have been written about solar dehydrating in the past.

One of the rules of dehydrating and perhaps one of the biggest mistakes that people make is that they do not boil/parboil their vegetables before placing them in the dehydrator.  This accomplishes several things.  By parboiling the food, it makes it easier for the dehydrator to extract the fluid from it.  The act of immersion in the boiling water for a couple of minutes also kills any bugs that may have slipped through, and any damaging fungus or exterior plant woes.

If you have a standard, 4-tray dehydrator, you can rock and roll with that thing for about 8 hours and dry your veggies out just fine. Another thing you may want to consider is that when you dehydrate fruits and vegetables there is some nutrient loss, especially vitamin C, but it can easily be added back.  Now, there are plenty of packets out there for canners, and if you want the Uncle Caveman method, here it is.  Take a couple of thousand milligrams of Vitamin C tablets, and crush them up into a fine powder.  Yes, the mortar and pestle made from marble are excellent for this.  A hammer with a clean striking face will suffice as a backup.

After powdering your Vitamin C very fine, then take a good-sized bowl (glass, such as Pyrex is best, as you can see the mixture occurring and it will not trap any Vitamin C on the surface) and fill it halfway with water at room temperat...


Did DNC Chair Pressured Bank to Give Imran Awan a Loan?, 1746 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Nobel Gold & Silver: Protect Your Money With Gold - Click Here- Or Call - 888-596-7916 Good evening, Im still reporting on: Did DNC Chair Pressured Bank to Give Imran Awan a Loan?, 1746 Synopsis: Remember that $165.000 loan that Congressional IT guy, Imran Awan tried to get out of the Congressional Federal Credit Union so he could wire it to Pakistan in advance of he and his wife fleeing the country? According to FBI sources, Credit Union officials saw so many red flags with the loan that it was repeatedly delayed and was only made when Democrat Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz pressured officials at the Credit Union to write the loan, which Imrans wife then promptly wired to Pakistan, far from the reach of U.S. law enforcement. Imrans wife was allowed to flee the country with more than the legal limit of cash hidden in her suitcase, despite the fact that the FBI suspected her of bank fraud as well. Imran was arrested by the FBI at Dulles Airport as he was boarding a plane for Pakistan, no doubt never to be seen again. Awan was charged with bank fraud. The Congressional Credit Union is not open to the public. It is normally reserved for Congress and members of their staffs. According to FBI sources, Awan and his wife applied for the loan as a home equity credit line, but the home the loan was linked to was one they rented, and the Awans did not disclose this to the bank.

Mueller Probe Going Nowhere, 1744 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level cyber protection. Good morning, Im still reporting on: Mueller Probe Going Nowhere, 1744 Synopsis: According to Alexander Mercouris writing in his blog called The Duran, the so-called investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller is going nowhere so nowhere that investigators once inside the investigation find out how inconsequential are the scraps of evidence being investigated they take out private insurance against the risk of lawsuits on down the line. Mueller apparently has three lines of investigation that he and his cadre of pro-Hillary prosecutors are working: 1. General Flynns interactions with ambassador Kislyak and his financial dealings with RT; 2. the meeting between Veselnitskaya and Donald Trump Junior; and 3. the money-laundering allegations against Paul Manafort. Mercouris says that virtually everything there is to know about #1 and #2 is a matter of public record now, he believes the only real investigative activity is against the tangled financial dealings of Manafort. Mercouris challenges a CNN article written on this very topic last Friday. He says one sentence from the CNN article characterizes their bias concerning this story: One passage in the CNN article tips over into outright misrepresentation: By last July when Russian intelligence began releasing troves of stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee, the FBI ha[d] been aware of the DNC intrusion [for] about a year. According to Mercouris this is flat out false. Wikileaks did the releasing, not the Russians. This is what Assange has said, long before this Russian conspiracy talk even started. Subsequently, independent investigators have verified this, and a growing body of evidence is that at least the first release came from Seth Rich, and that is why dismissing any Seth Rich connection is of the utmost importance to the Clinton Crime Syndicate. The bottom line on Manafort is that to date, he has not been accused of any wrongdoing.

Sequined Clay Ring Holders "IndyWatch Feed Craft"

We had a nice start with Katrin's pottery on Monday, so we continue with an interesting clay project.
We made some mini sequined clay (not exclusively ring) holders.
To make these you need (white) modeling clay, sequins in various colors and shapes for diversity, Elmer's glue, tempera, varnish / transparent nail polish.
Work the clay and shape into a dish - as for the size - we aimed at a mini size. Each of these - except the orange one which is a tad bigger - fits my the palm of my hand. We also aimed at a bit of "rustic" look so they are not at all perfect in shape. 
1. Leave the clay to dry. Once dry, cover the surface with Elmer's glue and add the sequins.

Critical Thinking Skills are More Important Than IQ "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From The British Psychological Society: A recent study found that critical thinking skills are a better predictor of ones ability to make wise, effective life decisions than intelligence or IQ score.

Critical thinking isnt about mental resources so much as a way of looking at the world and a tool-kit to use at the relevant moments. But unfortunately, as a society, we dont give enough attention to how to foster these skills. Some researchers are very pessimistic about the benefits of formal education for critical thinking, and although a recent meta-analysis has since suggested that attending college produces improvements in critical thinking, it could not identify where the skills were coming from. It should be possible to design better ways to impart and hone these skills, skills critical for the decisions that make up the stuff of our lives.

The Risk That Survives a Psych Ward Stay "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From OZY: The suicide rate for former psychiatric inpatients is 44 times higher than that of the general population. According to Australian psychiatrist and professor Christopher Ryan, some suicides may be caused by the traumatic experience of hospitalization.

Since a majority of patients admitted to psychiatric hospitals show signs of harming themselves, some experts say its logical to expect those patients to remain at a higher risk of killing themselves after they are discharged. But that assumes psych wards are not helping inpatients with suicidal tendencies. Ryan has an even more damning theory: Its a distinct possibility that a percentage of those deaths are caused by the hospitalization itself. He suggests that some patients, especially ones who have been hospitalized against their wishes, wouldnt have killed themselves if they hadnt been institutionalized in the first place.



PhD Students at Higher Risk of Developing a Psychiatric Disorder "IndyWatch Feed Health"

FBI Tipped of Clintons of Loretta Lynchs Itinerary, 1745 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

- Jeevy Computers: Buy/Sell Bitcoin & other Cryptos: 888-844-7806 Good evening, Im still reporting on: FBI Tipped of Clintons of Loretta Lynchs Itinerary, 1745 Synopsis: According to TruePundit, James Comeys FBI provided the Clintons with Attorney General Loretta Lynchs classified itinerary that allowed Bill Clinton to intercept her at the Phoenix Airport. Reportedly, Lynch seemed surprised when President Clinton appeared at her unmarked, Justice Dept. jet on June 27, 2016, just days before the scheduled interrogation of Hillary Clinton. Only a handful of senior FBI officials have access to the highly-classified travel itinerary of the Attorney General, including FBI Director Jim Comey, his Deputy Director, Andrew McCabe, and FBI General Counsel James Baker, who is believed to be under investigation as a primary leaker of classified information. The Attorney General is guarded by an elite detail of FBI agents specially trained in executive protection. President Clinton is guarded by the Secret Service and his Secret Service detail knew the exact tail number of Lynchs chartered, unmarked jet. The official story initially was that Clinton just happened to be in the same place at the same time, but anonymous federal law enforcement sources now say that Clinton took off from Teeterboro Airport in New Jersey that morning, knowing exactly where he was going. We may yet discover that the Attorney General was not at all surprised when President Clinton came knocking. It seems much more likely that airplane meetings has become he modus operandi for high level, clandestine meetings between important public figures and the Clinton Crime Syndicate.

Stop Heartburn with the Acid Reflux Diet "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Acid reflux, another term for heartburn, occurs when the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) does not work properly and allows acid to seep upwards from the stomach to the esophagus. The condition is more widespread among adults more than 40 years of age and those who are overweight. Howwever, acid reflux affects not just adults, but also infants and children, so it's essential for everyone to be aware of how it can be prevented.

One of the most important ways to prevent heartburn is through diet. Anyone suffering from heartburn needs have a special acid reflux diet. Certain foods can aggravate your heartburn symptoms, and when planning your acid reflux diet, it's best to limit or avoid completely those foods and drinks that trigger acid reflux. There are some foods that should be avoided entirely, as they are usually responsible for a higher occurrence of heartburn.

To find out about an all-natural, holistic 5-step system for curing acid reflux and heartburn and achieving freedom from most digestive disorders faster than you ever thought possible, click here!

Foods and beverages that have alcohol, chocolate, caffeine, spearmint, and peppermint can increase acid production and, therefore, should be avoided. Also, avoid carbonated drinks. While it hasn't been determined whether a high-fat or low-fat diet has any effect, it's still advisable to cut down on saturated fats if you are overweight or obese.

What you should include in your acid reflux diet is protein since it may assist in supporting muscles in the muscle valve. You might also want to include more whole grains as well as more fruits and vegetables. Be aware, though, that some fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes, oranges, and pineapple, can be very acidic.

This is by no means a complete list, and in your personal situation, you may either find you can eat the foods from the "Avoid" group with no problem or have problems with foods not listed. If you want additional information regarding the acid reflux diet, you can visit a nutrition-oriented health care practitioner, such as a dietician, naturopathic physician, or nutritionist. They can develop a personalized diet that will fit your specific needs.


Teenager Fiercely Loyal to Original Line-Up of Band He Just Discovered "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. Doug McLadden declared his allegiance this morning to the original, three-piece line-up of classic punk outfit Cardinal Malaise, a band he started listening to last Tuesday, according to friends close to the young punk.

I listened to their new album today, and I gotta say, it was a far cry from the genius of the band I fell in love with last week, said McLadden, referring to Cardinal Malaises 13th studio album, Callin In Slick. It felt like a throwback, until I got to the Personnel section of the Wikipedia page and realized its not Cortin Falto on bass.

Introduced by his brother-in-law at a family party, McLadden was instantly hooked on the decades-old band from the opening minutes of their commercial breakthrough, Grub Chuggins. The single debuted on Maybe Scabies, their fifth album, which was released in 93.

Im a purist, admitted McLadden. Once you have a fresh and original group locked in, any changes will mess up the creative core and leave an inferior unit going forward. Its like Ive always said: give me Bon Scott, Tommy Ramone, and while were at it, my seventh grade girlfriend, Tammy. Nobody has been able to come close to her yet.

McLadden attributed his fervent devotion, in part, to nostalgia.


That first album just said what I needed to hear last week in my youth, said McLadden. The good reviews on the back of the reissue really solidified it. Robert Christgau, David Fricke, Tim Yohannan everyone loved the first Cardinal Malaise.

Experts claim McLaddens devotion to the bands original lineup may be misguided.

That debut is a landmark in Midwestern punk, said local record store clerk Tommy Skiff. But those dudes hated each other. They changed members more than I change my underwear, man. By 87, it was a totally different lineup. In fact, there was a brief period in 1990 where the band was technically Bad Religion.

As of press time, McLadden was surprised to discover his neighbor and good friend, Brad Minton, had never heard of Cardinal Malaise, c...


Star Wars Battlefront 2 Announces Jar Jar Binks as Killable Character "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

EA Games and DICE have announced that those who pre-order the highly anticipated Star Wars Battlefront 2 will receive the ability to execute the famously polarizing Jar Jar Binks.

Reports indicate that, in developing Battlefront 2, EA was aware that there was much riding on the newest iteration of the flagship Star Wars video game franchise.

We here at EA recognized that reception to Star Wars Battlefront for next gen consoles was fairly lukewarm, said EA CEO Andrew Wilson. Weve listened to our fans, and in addition to a robust campaign mode, the game will also include the ability to butcher the overtly racist caricature however the player sees fit.

Whether its Darth Vader on the Death Star or Chewbacca at the Battle of Endor, players will get their chance to maim and murder that motherfucker in whatever way they desire.

In addition to the ability to kill Jar Jar Binks, those that pre-order the Special Edition of Battlefront 2...

Parallel Worlds Events in Game of Thrones Based on Real Historical Events "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Caleb Strom; Ancient Origins

The television series, Game of Thrones, based on George R.R. Martins book series A Song of Ice and Fire, has been praised for its gritty realism and epic storyline. G.R.R. Martin has been referred to as the American Tolkien. Game of Thrones, however, was not made up from scratch and some events do have parallels in real world history, which makes sense, being that the author of the original books wanted it to be realistic and explore themes pertinent to the real world including politics, gender, religion, and identity.

Most of the real world historical events and personalities which served or may have served as inspiration for events and characters in Game of Thrones and the book series A Song of Ice and Fire are events that took place during the Middle Ages, though a few of them took place in classical antiquity.

Game of Thrones Draws from The War of the Roses

View of the Castle of Zafra, Campillo de Dueas, Guadalajara, Spain. The castle was built in the late 12th or early 13th centuries (CC BY SA 4.0)

For example, the entire Game of Thrones storyline itself is partly inspired by a real-world conflict, the War of the Roses (1455-1487). In the show, Game of Thrones, two rival houses compete for control of the Iron Throne. The two houses are the northern House of Stark known for being poor but, relatively, virtuous and the southern House of Lannister which is extremely rich and very devious.

Overcoming Anxiety By Embracing Uncertainty "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"



Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry all forms of fear are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. ~Eckhart Tolle

Life is fundamentally unpredictable and so we cant be certain about what is going to happen next. And although uncertainty is, in a sense, a blessing, since it allows space for freedom and change, at the same time it can be a curse.

Being used to the known reality of our lives, most of us become attached to it and hence dislike change. The future is unknown, and how can we be sure that what we possess for example, our health, material possessions, friends or love partners will not be taken away from us? And, considering the inevitability of death, we tremble in the face of the unknown ahead of us. We are aware that at any time, even the very next moment, we might die. In fact, any moment we die will be the next moment.

In order to feel more secure, we try to control life as much as we can, by constantly trying to fit the future to our expectations. Yet, the only thing we ultimately achieve by doing so is to put ourselves in a constant state of anxiety that prevents us from savoring the present moment. As put by Alan Watts:

If to enjoy even an enjoyable present we must have the assurance of a happy future, we are crying for the moon. We have no such assurance. The best predictions are still matters of probability rather than certainty, and to the best of our knowledge every one of us is going to suffer and die. If, then, we cannot live happily without an assured future, we are certainly not adapted to living in a finite world where, despite the best plans, accidents will happen, and where death comes at the end.

Whether we like it or not, the truth is and we better accept it that we cant predict what kind of fortune good or ill lies on our path. No matter how much we try to control life, it will inevitably disappoint us by taking its own course.

To overcome our overwhelming anxiety about the future, we need to let go of our desire to control every event, factor the unexpected into our plans, embrace uncertainty and flow with the wild current of life, trusting that it will takes us to new and exciting pl...


Chinas Government Bans Religion and Insists on Atheism "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

China Communist Party

Regardless of the fact that Chinas constitution allows the practice of religion, Communist Party of China, the ruling party, bans its members from having any religious beliefs. The head of Chinas top religious affairs regulator said that party members should not practice religion and those who have religious beliefs should be persuaded to give them up.

"Party members should not have religious beliefs, which is a red line for all members Party members should be firm Marxist atheists, obey Party rules and stick to the Party's faith they are not allowed to seek value and belief in religion," Wang Zuoan, director of the State Administration for Religious Affairs (SARA), wrote in an article released in the Qiushi Journal on Saturday, the flagship magazine of the CPC Central Committee.

The China authorities move is irresistibly reminiscent of the term thought crime which is an Orwellian neologism used to describe an illegal thought. The term was popularized in the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, wherein thought crime is the criminal act of holding unspoken beliefs or doubts that oppose or question Ingsoc, the ruling party. In the book, the government attempts to control not only the speech and actions, but also the thoughts of its subjects.

Wang added: "Some foreign forces have used religion to infiltrate China, and extremism and illegal religious activities are spreading in some places, which have threatened national security and social stability." Religions should be sinicized We should guide religious groups and individuals with socialist core values and excellent traditional Chinese culture and support religious groups to dig into their doctrines to find parts that are beneficial to social harmony and development.

"It is important that Wang constantly reminds Party members not to have religious beliefs. Some people who claim to be scholars support religions us beliefs in the Party, which has undermined the Party's values based on dialectical materialism," Zhu Weiqun, chairman of the Ethnic and Religious Committee of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, told on Tuesday.

According to Su Wei, a professor at the Party School of the CPC Chongqing Committee, guiding religions to suit to China's development is a core policy to solve China's religious problems. The moves evolve with traditional Chinese values over years and meet the demand of socialist development.

The problem with the bans is that they have a counter-effect and further accelerate what is prohibited. B...

Yet Another Holistic Doctor, Working Against Big Pharma, Found Dead "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Yet another holistic doctor working against Big Pharma has been found dead, as the community of physicians attempting to work outside the confines of the pharmaceutical industry, threatening their profits, continues to be eradicated.

Dr. John Michael Lonergam, MD, known affectionately as Dr. Mike to his patients and followers, was found dead yesterday of an apparent heart attack. He was 44 and fighting fit according to friends and family.

Dr Lonergam dedicated his life to developing natural cures and encouraged his patients and followers to avoid Big Pharmas poisonous products. He developed an anti-inflammatory injection that reduced chronic pain, known as the Jesus shot, which was received rave reviews from customers.

However Big Pharma and mainstream media conspired to smear his natural remedy, and also worked overtime for decades to persecute the holistic M.D. in an attempt to drive him out of business.

Erin Elizabeth at Health Nut News spoke to Dr. Lonergams office staff and they confirmed the death of the holistic doctor and researcher, but also said his lifes work would not be going to the grave with him. Due to the exceptionally high death rate among holistic doctors, Dr. Mike had trained a man to carry on his important work helping patients overcome chronic pain without Big Pharmas products.

Dr. Lonergams death is the latest in a bloody week for holistic doctors, healers and authors. Earlier this week famous author Ann Boroch died in suspicious circumstances. Boroch famously cured herself of multiple sclerosis at the age of 23 and published books promoting her natural cure.

As is the case with most of the 70 dead holistic doctors and healers in the past two years, the coroner announced her death as suicide, however her family dispute this.

We have lost so many holistic healers...

Excellent (in my view) message from James. Yes, were IN it, baby, and it is time to follow our Higher Guidance and Insights and BE and DO what we are here to BE and DO.

Looks like we are in for a wild ride. According to Heart Math and its monitors the magnetic fields of the Earth have quadrupled. The Shuman Resonance has jumped from its normal around 7 hertz to 200 Easter then 530 the past few days. Obviously there has been some divine intervention on Earth not just in shielding but in the vibrational lifting. The awakening and healing process is in full swing. We are witnessing end of tyranny and the beginning of a whole new age. It is the prophecies unfolding.

All that which is out of alignment with Universal Law, often referred to as Universal Peace, Brother/Sisterly Love, Individual Freedom and Prosperity for All will implode on itself. The Global Reset is part of this process yet a step to a civilization that lives abundantly without money.

We are at the turning point, their contract is up, time and a half is over and they are being removed along with the unseen puppet masters. The Sun is cooperating with the Earths desire to ascend. It is as if the whole multiverse is behind this event.

Hell Yeah! My Credit Card Company Called to Say My Balance Is Outstanding "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Growing up is hard and it happens so fast. Its like one day youre graduating from high school, and the next youre supposed to be an adult and understand words like interest rate final notice or repossession. Theres a lot of pressure from society, banks, and parents to get your financial shit in order. So after weeks of effort Im proud to announce that things are finally starting to turn around for me today my credit card company called to tell me my balance is outstanding.

How cool is that?!

And to think, when I dropped out of college to sell merch for my boyfriends band people said I was making a mistake. But Im showing them!  Charging repairs for Dustys van isnt a waste, its an investment in our future. Someday when hes famous were going to be rich and all this debt Ive accrued will be worth it.

I know a lot of my friends from high school are buying houses, having babies, and saving for retirement. But Im preparing for old age in my own way. Money might come and go but these tattoos are going to make me look cool forever. Also, Im totally thinking about adopting a pit bull just as soon as Dusty and I can afford to move out of his uncles place.

And after Burning Man, of course.

Theresa May to reintroduce 11+ exam for Cabinet members "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Prime Minister Theresa May has surprised observers by announcing that as part of her reintroduction of grammar school, everybody in the Cabinet will be expected to sit the Eleven Plus.

A spokesman for Boris Johnson confirmed that the foreign secretary is already stocking up on polo mints and has chosen his favourite mascot gonk, called Gove, to sit on his exam desk. He will have two special branch invigilators circling his desk to make sure he doesnt talk or cheat.

Johnson is known to be excellent at languages and history, although his geography has been marked down as poor despite his role at the foreign office. His mathematics will be challenged, too, with questions like: If a politician pledges to pay 350 million a week to the NHS, how much will it have left after two years to pay 23.4 billion towards a replacement for Trident, given a shrinking of the economy by 6% post-Brexit?

Theresa Mays vision of a new 11+ will include up to the minute subjects like art and design. Its understood one more creative question will be: Sketch a poster telling foreigners that if they dont go home soon, people will start to hate them and horrible things could be put through their letterboxes before they are arrested.

One senior Government figure said: Teresas view of the new Cabinet is that it should be comfortable, suburban, and meritocratic, and rid itself of stories of prostitution, cocaine, fagging, toasting forks, well-upholstered matrons, beatings, tuck shops, mutual male masturbation, offshore holdings and exotic recipes featuring pork.

We want to appeal to people who go to Guernsey or Malta for their holidays, drink medium sherry, shop at John Lewis and still secretly read Jilly Cooper.

Mays supporters have denied suggestions that a requirement for old fashioned 11+ success for all Cabinet members will be socially divisive.

According to one May strategist: This is a new idea. Those who fail can all be part of a secondary, modern cabinet, tasked with more practical matters like sorting out Brexit; working with their hands in northern industry and the kind of bricklaying that will lead to as many as five affordable houses being built near Dorking. We will of course set the bar so more candidates fail the 11+ than pass it. That doesnt necessarily mean theyll be second class junior ministers for the rest of their life, laughed at in the tea rooms and bullied in the lobbies and discriminated against on the gong list.

And Mrs Leadsom can, when she fails the exam, keep her brief as Minister for Domestic Science. With all those children she couldnt help having, poor thing, she knows her way around a kitchen!

Hackers Demand The Immediate Destruction Of All Future Episodes Of The Bachelor "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

the bachelor 2017

Less than 24 hours after hackers released to the public scripts of future Game of Thrones episodes, an anonymous group of hackers has demanded the immediate destruction of all future episodes of The Bachelor.

We cannot take any more of this attack on our fundamental human rights, a video statement by the group said. To continue to air The Bachelor is an insult to all citizens who believe in freedom, the human spirit and good taste. We the people demand immediate action.

The group goes on to iterate if their demands are not met, they will hijack Channel Tens broadcast signal and instead screen an hour of CGI footage of the Western world burning.

This morning Channel Tens executive producer suggested a compromise in response, offering to pre screen all episodes to the group before they are aired publicly.

To this suggestion the hackers only responded:

Please God no.

These recent occurrences would be surprising if it wasnt after an almost identical series of demands from another group towards HBO and its hit show Game of Thrones, a subtle historical drama.

The masked man concludes the hostage video: Its clear that a show like The Bachelor is far worse for society than that other program which frequently depicts graphic war, torture and humans being burned alive by dragons.

Its also a lot less realistic.

The Nano Guitar: Behold the Worlds Smallest, Playable Microscopic Guitar "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

In 1997, the Cornell Chronicle announced: "The world's smallest guitar -- carved out of crystalline silicon and no larger than a single cell -- has been made at Cornell University to demonstrate a new technology that could have a variety of uses in fiber optics, displays, sensors and electronics."

Invented by Dustin W. Carr, the so-called "nanoguitar" measured 10 micrometers long--roughly the size of your average red blood cell. And it had six strings, each "about 50 nanometers wide, the width of about 100 atoms."

According to The Guardian, the vintage 1997 nanoguitar was actually never played. That honor went to a 2003 edition of the nanoguitar, whose strings were plucked by miniature lasers operated with an atomic force microscope, creating "a 40 megahertz signal that is 130,000 times higher than the sound of a full-scale guitar." The human ear couldn't hear something at that frequency, and that's a problem not even a good amp--a Vox AC30, Fender Deluxe Reverb, etc.--could fix.

Thus concludes today's adventure in nanotechnology.

dream - thor's hammer and the ginger bull of domestic protection - pyongyang gaums trump "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

it's been a looooooooooooooong while (February) since I shared one of my ridiculously vivid dreams with you, even though my Dream Diary is filled most nights with plenty of splendid space-narrative.

Here's the guts of last night's entry, and it scared me.

Not at first.
Not the image of using a wooden (handle-less) Thor's Hammer to raze a Templar siege tower to the ground.
Not the image of a ginger bull with a smear of shit on its snout protecting the back of someone's house.

I woke up just before 7 a.m. and wrote down THOR'S HAMMER AND THE GINGER BULL OF DOMESTIC PROTECTION.

Soon after, the seven o-clock radio-news told of PyongYang i.e. North Korea, setting their nuclear aim on American territory Guam and broadcast Trump's FIRE AND FURY rhetoric. Remember the Rod of God or Thor's Hammer supposedly hanging in space ready to strike the unworthy. Distractionism runs military action so look elsewhere is my advice...

NB: caveat, my dreams are just that i.e. not predictive messages from the ether and the Twin Towers fell, on September 11th 2001, as if they'd been pummelled from above (or below) by some insanely powerful vertical concussive pressure-wave strike.


13 Signs That You Are An Emotionally Intelligent Person "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Have you ever noticed some people seem to succeed at everything while others struggle through it all? Could this be in relation to what kind of intelligence they carry?

Well, if you know anything about emotional intelligence you know that people with it tend to do quite well for themselves. Emotional intelligence is merely the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of those around you. People who are emotionally intelligent can harness their emotions and apply them to their everyday activities. Regulating emotions like this can really help cheer a person up and in some cases calm them down.

Below you will find a list of the most common traits found in emotionally intelligent people. That being said, if the following does not apply to you it doesnt mean you are not smart or emotionally in-tune, it just means you have some things to work on. Anyone can become emotionally intelligent!

1. They create boundaries

Emotionally intelligent people set boundaries and those boundaries are not to be crossed; saying no when it is necessary is no issue for them.

2. They focus on the positive things in life

They do not let the negative things in life get them down. Focusing on the problem will not get anyone anywhere and they know this all too well.

3. They know they are not perfect

They know their own faults and have been working to resolve them. They make mistakes just like everyone else and they accept their mistakes.

4. They know when it is time to work

They do not waste time at work, because everything they do is productive. They know that there is a time for and a time for play.

5. They do not mind change

They know that change is not something to be afraid of. When change happens it is not seen as something terrible raining down on them, it is something good to come no matter what it is.

6. They are curious

They want to get to know the people around them, they do not cut themselves off and think only of themselves.

7. They are highly e...


New Deep Learning Courses Released on Coursera, with Hope of Teaching Millions the Basics of Artificial Intelligence "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

FYI: If you follow edtech, you know the name Andrew Ng. He's the Stanford computer science professor, who co-founded MOOC-provider Coursera and later became chief scientist at Baidu. Since leaving Baidu, he's been working on three artificial intelligence projects, the first of which he unveiled yesterday. On Medium, he wrote:

I have been working on three new AI projects, and am thrilled to announce the first one:, a project dedicated to disseminating AI knowledge, is launching a new sequence of Deep Learning courses on Coursera. These courses will help you master Deep Learning, apply it effectively, and build a career in AI.

Speaking to the MIT Technology Review, Ng elaborated: "The thing that really excites me today is building a new AI-powered society... I dont think any one company could do all the work that needs to be done, so I think the only way to get there is if we teach millions of people to use these AI tools so they can go and invent the things that no large company, or company I could build, could do."

The Duluth News Tribune Launches Two Print Weeklies "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

The new weekly print publications will run every Thursday and cover specific areas of Duluth, Minn.

In an effort to provide more localized coverage, the Duluth (Minn.) News Tribune recently launched a pair of weekly print-only publications.

The Western Weekly and Eastern Observer debuted June 8 and are planned to be published every Thursday. Each paper covers specific areas of the city and surrounding neighborhoods.

This is a journey back to our community journalism roots, said publisher Neal Ronquist. We seek to provide coverage of youth sports, our elementary schools, our churches, other civic organizations and of course the people who make these neighborhoods special. Publishing products with smaller press runs limits our expenses and also allows us to offer lower price points to potential advertising partners.

The News Tribune will print 3,000 copies of each weekly free for the first few months while the papers gain more subscribers. After that, subscriptions for the new weeklies will cost $36 per year, and single issues will be available at stores for $1. Both newspapers are 12 broadsheet pages and feature a 60/40 editorial to advertising ratio.

41 day streak of temperatures at 90 degrees or higher going back to June is new heat record for consecutive days in Downtown Sacramento "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Downtown Sacramento on Monday broke its record for the number of consecutive days that temperatures topped out at 90 degrees or higher.
A high of 90 degrees was reached shortly before 3 p.m., marking a 41-day streak, according to the National Weather Service.
The previous record was 40 consecutive days, set in 1992.
The last time downtown Sacramento saw a high of less than 90 degrees was June 27.
The 40-day streak in 1992 ran from July 13 through Aug. 21.
Weve just been under a ridge of high pressure for a lot of the summer, said Cory Mueller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
That has created the extended period of warm weather, he noted.
The streak is expected to continue, with the forecast calling for high temperatures in the 90s at least through Sunday.
Other areas across the Sacramento Valley are coming close to breaking their records, he said, noting that Redding, which typically experiences higher temperatures than Sacramento during the summer, has experienced a similar streak.

Some People Are Meant to Be Alone! 14 Ways to Tell if You Are That Person "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

We are all unique, with our own individual paths in life. For some people that will mean finding their perfect partner, having children and raising a family, however, this isnt necessarily true for everyone.

There are a number of people who are genuinely happy kicking it on their own, without tying themselves down with a relationship. These people would rather spend their time hanging out with their closest friends then grabbing dinner and a movie with their partner. Sometimes referred to as a loner or introvert, its not that they dont want people in their lives, they just prefer their own downtime.

When quizzed, experts including psychologists, relationship coaches, and dating experts revealed these 14 signs that you were meant to stay single:

It Just Feels Right

You may not be able to put your finger on it, but there is something about living the single life that just feels right to you. No one said you had to have a reason!

You Always Want Things Your Way

There isnt always a right way and a wrong way when looking at the finer details of your life. If you are so set on how specific details should be carried out in your world, like how to make your bed, you are going to drive your partner crazy.

You Are Determined You Dont Need Anyone

While there is nothing wrong with being independent, a relationship is about being a team. If you cant let anyone in, then you may just be happier on your own.

You Want to Do You 24/7

Confident and comfortable in your own skin, you enjoy life traveling your own path and doing the things that you love the most. The idea of having to change or alter this in any way for someone else makes you roll your eyes.

You would Rather be Right than Happy

Relationships are all about sacrifice, and if you arent willing to make that sacrifice then there is no point in wasting your time.

Skyrocketing Male Infertility May Threaten Mankinds Survival "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Human fertility is in a downward spiral, scientists warn and modern life with its technological and chemical progress is likely to blame. Female infertility tends to get the most attention, but in this case, its male infertility that has made headlines, as recent research shows sperm concentration and quality has dramatically declined in recent decades.1,2,3,4,5

According to the first of two recently published papers,6 a meta-analysis of 185 studies and the largest of its kind, sperm counts around the world declined by more than 50 percent, to 47 million sperm per milliliter (mL), between 1973 and 2013, and continue to dwindle.

The most significant declines were found in samples from men in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, where many had sperm concentrations below 40 million/mL. (Men suspected of infertility, such as those attending IVF clinics, were excluded from the study.) Overall, men in these countries had a 52.4 percent decline in sperm concentration and a 59.3 percent decline in total sperm count (sperm concentration multiplied by the total volume of an ejaculate).

Male Infertility Rates Warn of Impending Human Extinction

According to the World Health Organization, 40 million sperm per mL is considered the cutoff point at which a man will have trouble fertilizing an egg, which means half of the men in most developed nations are near or at the point of being infertile. South American, Asian and African men had no noticeable decline, although this discrepancy could be due to the smaller sample sizes obtained from those countries.

As noted by Frederick vom Saal, professor emeritus of biological sciences at the University of Missouri, who was not involved in the study, these findings are a wake-up call and a warning that we are in a death spiral of infertility in men. Indeed, lead author Dr. Hagai Levine, who called the results profound and shocking,7...

Blood Pressure Testing Is Mostly Inaccurate "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

About 29 percent of American adults suffer from high blood pressure, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),1 and it ranks as the second greatest public health threat. Of the one-third of adults who have high blood pressure, only half have the condition under control, even with medication.2

Your blood pressure is the force needed to push blood through your arteries coming from your heart to deliver oxygen rich blood around your body. When your blood pressure is measured, you get a high value (systolic) and a low value (diastolic). The high number measures the highest pressure that occurs in your blood vessels while your heart is contracting. The low value measures the pressure in your arteries between heartbeats when your heart is relaxed.

Usually the systolic pressure, or top number, offers the most information about how stiff your arteries are and how much pressure is needed to push blood around your body. This is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. But individually, an elevated systolic or diastolic blood pressure may be enough to make a diagnosis of high blood pressure.

Recent studies have demonstrated the risk of death from heart disease and stroke doubles with every 20 mmHg elevation in your systolic blood pressure or 10 mmHg elevation in your diastolic pressure in people ages 40 to 89.3

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is diagnosed when your pressure measures greater than or equal to 140 mmHg systolic pressure and greater than or equal to 90 mmHg of diastolic pressure. However, to reach the conclusion about treatment for hypertension, your physician must first have an accurate measurement of your blood pressure.

Common Method of Measuring Blood Pressure May Be Inaccurate

The method of taking blood pressure was invented in 1881 and refined in 1905 when Russian surgeon Dr. Nikolai Korotkoff discovered the difference between systolic and diastolic blood pressure measurements.4 Today, sphygmomanometers, the machine that measures blood pressure, continue to measure the appearanc...

Experts Warn Statin Drug Trend Puts Lives at Risk "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

The number of people continuing to suffer from heart disease and stroke rises each year, despite advancements in pharmaceutical intervention. Unfortunately, the misguided recommendation to eat a low-fat diet is only making matters worse. Cardiovascular disease was listed as the underlying cause of death in 33 percent of all deaths in the U.S.1 and remains the No. 1 cause of death.

Someone has a stroke every 40 seconds and a stroke kills someone every four minutes. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), seven factors are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, including smoking, inactivity, diet, high cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.2 While some of these factors are straightforward, such as smoking or not smoking, others are more complicated than a simple measurement.

Like saturated fat, cholesterol has been vilified despite 60 years worth of research having failed to demonstrate a correlation between high total cholesterol and heart disease. Cholesterol is actually one of the more important molecules your body uses to build cells and produce hormones and vitamin D. Low levels of cholesterol that may occur with pharmaceutical intervention are linked to memory loss and Alzheimers disease,3 and may increase your risk of depression,4 stroke and violent behavior.

Cholesterol is often divided into HDL/good and LDL/bad cholesterol, but the division is really based on how the molecule combines with protein. LDL and HDL are lipoproteins, or fat molecules combined with protein. Fat must be transported in your blood with a protein, which is classified by density. Large LDL molecules are actually not harmful, but small dense LDL particles may squeeze out of the lining of your arteries and trigger damage and inflammation.

Some groups, such as the National Lipid Association, are now starting to shift the focus toward the size of the LDL particle instead of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol, in order to better assess your risk of heart disease. W...

A List Of Known Bitcoin Ransom Cases "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

2017-07-01 India "Ransom demand made in Bitcoins, six in police net" The kidnappers released Jain after six days. It is unclear if his family members paid the ransom. The police are tight-lipped on the matter.

2017-05-01 Brazil "Woman in Brazil rescued after kidnappers demanded bitcoin ransom payment" The 32-year-old wife of a Brazilian "Bitcoin businessman" has been rescued by local police after she was grabbed by kidnappers who demanded a ransom be paid in Bitcoin.

2017-04-27 Israel "Israeli-American teen arrested over Australian school bomb hoax calls" Media reports say he had almost $US500,000 in his Bitcoin account at the time of his arrest, some purportedly coming from students who wanted exams postponed.

2016-10-04 United Kingdom "Simon Cowell, Lord Sugar and Kate Moss 'were on hitlist drawn up by killer who tortured antiques dealer into handing over Wind in the Willows book." Having killed one guy, perp then emailed VC Adrian Beecroft demanding 200 Bitcoin telling him I know where your daughter goes to school.

2015-10-29 Taiwan "I thought I was going to die!" The kidnappers had threatened to dig out the eyeballs or chop off the legs of the Pearl Oriental Oil chairman known as Wong Yuk-kwan if his family did not pay a HK$70 million ransom in Bitcoin.

2015-09-26 United Kingdom "Give me 50,000 or I'll poison your pumpkins! What Bitcoin blackmailer told farmer who produces half the UK's supply." David Bowman feared his livelihood would be destroyed after he was blackmailed by a former soldier who threatened to poison his entire crop with cyanide.

2015-01-30 United States "Police Alert Residents To Bitcoin Extortion Scam" Farmington Police say a demand for $2,000 in Bitcoin comes in the mail, threatening the addressee and his or her family. It claims to know their address, schedule, and how to kill them, undetected.

2015-01-20 Costa Rica "Following alleged kidnapping, Canadian expat recovering at Costa Rica home, says attorney" The alleged kidnappers had demanded nearly half a million dollars in the crypto currency Bitcoin.

Naturally, it's possible that these kidnappings and failed attempts to extort a Bitcoin ransom as reported by the media are inaccurate or fabrications (clickbait), but it seems just as likely such acts are occurring and likely to grow as the demand for Bitcoin grows. It's also possible that successful attempts to garner a Bitcoin ransom go unreported by media, police and government as well as the victims.


The Latest Attempt To Win The Afghan War: Replace The Soldiers With Mercenaries "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


One of the most controversial aspects of the Iraq war was the heavy use of defense contractors, who were in many cases paid vast sums of money to do jobs that youd think an ordinary soldier could do. When it was all said and done, defense contractors had reaped $138 billion dollars by providing security, logistics, and construction services. Among the most notorious of these contractors was Blackwater, whose employees gained a reputation for reckless behavior that caused many unnecessary deaths.

Fast forward to today, and now Blackwaters founder, former Navy Seal Erik Prince, is pushing for a plan to win the war in Afghanistan by replacing the soldiers with defense contractors. Prince first suggested the plan last May in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, where he described this idea in colonial terms. The private military units would be based on units that were deployed by the British East India Company, and would be lead by a single person who he referred to as an American Viceroy, that would report directly to the president.

As strange as it may sound, Trump appears to be taking the idea seriously. Its hard to blame him. Afghanistan is now Americas longest running war, and no matter how many soldiers, generals, aid, or money we throw at the country, nothing seems to bring stability.  Which is why this radical new plan probably looks very enticing to Trump right now.

Under his proposal, private advisers would work directly with Afghanistan combat battalions throughout the country, and the air force would be used for medical evacuation, fire support and ferrying troops.

Prince said the contractors would be adjuncts of the Afghan military and would wear that nations military uniforms. Pilots would only drop ordnance with Afghan government approval, he said.

Currently, troops from a U.S.-led coalition are stationed primarily at top level headquarters and are not embedded with conventional combat uni...

Among the most notorious of these contractors was Blackwater, whose employees gained a reputation for reckless behavior that caused many unnecessary deaths.

Fast forward to today, and now Blackwaters founder, former Navy Seal Erik Prince, is pushing for a plan to win the war in Afghanistan by replacing the soldiers with defense contractors. Prince first suggested the plan last May in an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, where he described this idea in colonial terms. The private military units would be based on units that were deployed by the British East India Company, and would be lead by a single person who he referred to as an American Viceroy, that would report directly to the president.

As strange as it may sound, Trump appears to be taking the idea seriously. Its hard to blame him. Afghanistan is now Americas longest running war, and no matter how many soldiers, generals, aid, or money we throw at the country, nothing seems to bring stability.  Which is why this radical new plan probably looks very enticing to Trump right now.

Under his proposal, private advisers would work directly with Afghanistan combat battalions throughout the country, and the air force would be used for medical evacuation, fire support and ferrying troops.

Prince said the contractors would be adjuncts of the Afghan military and would wear that nations military uniforms. Pilots would only drop ordnance with Afghan government approval, he said.

Currently, troops from a U.S.-led coalition are stationed primarily at top level headquarters and are not embedded with conventional combat units in the field. Under the plan the contractors would be embedded with Afg...


Student headed to prison for registering dead voters for Democrats "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

(WSET) -- A former staffer with Harrisonburg Votes, a political organization affiliated with the Democratic party, paid to register area voters during the weeks leading up to the 2016 National Election, was sentenced in federal court Tuesday for causing 18 fraudulent Virginia Voter Registration Forms.

Andrew J. Spieles, 21, of Harrisonburg was sentenced to 100 days in jail.

The court waived any fees associated with the charges due to an inability to pay the fine, and Spieles will not have to serve any probation following his jail-time.

He previously pled guilty to one-count of information charging him with knowingly transferring false Virginia Voter Registration Forms.

According to evidence presented a previous hearing, in July 2016 Spieles' job was to register as many voters as possible and report them to Democratic headquarters in Harrisonburg.

In August 2016, Spieles was directed to combine his registration numbers with those of another person because their respective territories overlapped.

After filling out a registration form for a voter, Spieles entered the information into a computer system used by the Virginia Democratic Party to track information such as name, age, address, and political affiliation.

Every Thursday, am employee or volunteer hand-delivered the paper copies of the registration forms to the Registrar's Office in Harrisonburg.

On August 15, 2016, an employee at the Registrar's Office contacted law enforcement after another employee in the office recognized a registration form submitted in the name of the deceased father of a Rockingham County judge.

The Registrar's Office discovered multiple instances of similarly falsified forms when it reviewed additional registrations.

Some were in the names of deceased individuals while others had incorrect middle names, birth dates, and social security numbers.

The Registrar's Office then learned that the individuals named in these forms had not in face submitted the new voter registrations; the assistant registrar's personal knowledge of the names of some of the individuals named in the falsified documents facilitated the detection of the crime.

Prosecutors admitted that he prepared the false voter registration forms by obtaining the name, age, and address of individua...


Aug Tellez Update - Summary of the Underground Base Projects, Mind Control and Soul-Awareness "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Aug 8, 2017 is for the mental liberation of humanity!

Everything Ive said from the initial releases up to now is all from direct experience.

Trauma Based Ritual Abuse and the Awakening through Merging Alters to Restore Memory

Children are kidnapped for trauma based mind control with elite groups and there is a celebrity cloning situation that has gotten out of hand. I went through something called the awakening which is a procedure where the alters are removed and when this occurs the memory blocks are removed as well because they are held in place through the alters.

Trauma creates the alters and so there is a reversal process based on the specific programming patterns that are used, these are like unlock codes.

The Soul Fragmentation of the Human Race, The Secondary Big-Bang, and the Soul Trap

The human race was fragmented from an event in the past, time is not what we think, research Stan Deyo for more on that. The universe experienced a secondary big bang recently and this was through the initiation of quantum experimentation, I speak about this in the video with Lisa Melendez. Because of this break, the consciousness of the species literally went into disarray, many systems were set up or resulted and one is the soul trap in which the souls or bio-memory of the human is contained through electromagnetic fields from a device called the soul magnet and the energy is contained in an alternate plane and then wiped with a high energy discharge before being sent back to the Earth plane.

Autonomy or True Self-Awareness

The original human race was a kind of autonomous without true self-awareness. Secret groups have held the knowledge of the truth of this realm. Everything that is discussed here was invented in the underground bases, nothing is discussed unless it first passes through there, no matter what people think.

Self-Awareness, the Flesh and The Discovery of Immortality

Joy and compassion is the mark of the awakened one, people have animal and higher natures the animal nature wants to fight and destr...

Making peace with food "IndyWatch Feed Education"

Recently, somewhere on the web, I read an article by a woman who detailed (in great detail!) what she ate to avoid being fat.

Now, her eating habits are totally her choice. I get that. As is her desire to weigh a certain weight.

But I still felt sad after reading the article. Sadness which I grant that the original author may not feel but sadness nevertheless. Sadness because the daily diet of sameness  implied that food was an enemy, to be kept at bay with a strict routine and self discipline.

And it reminded me to pick up my  copy of Intuitive Eating once again. Because intuitive eating is all about making peace with food. 235869

Food and hunger are not the enemy.

Nothing is. Really.

Its just life and choices and enjoyment and health, all  stirred together with a dash of exercise and a sprinkling of self care. Like chocolate and bananas in the same meal.

What is intuitive eating? The book outlines ten principles (Note to self and others: principles, to be tried over time and re-visited. Not rules):

  1. Reject the Diet Mentality.
  2. Honour your Hunger
  3. Make Peace with Food
  4. Challenge the Food Police
  5. Respect your Fullness
  6. Discover the Satisfaction Factor
  7. Honor Your Feelings without Using Food
  8. Respect your Body
  9. Exercise Feel the Difference
  10. Honour your Health

This is a gentle approach to nutrition, exercise and self care. It builds on what nutritionist Ellyn Satter calls the competent eating model.

Satter notes that child who hasnt been pressured to eat or not eat certain foods, who hasnt been pressured to have a different body size to that which is natural for them, is a competent eater, one who feels good about eatingand eats as much as they need.

It really is that simple. Indeed, research shows that prescribed dietary guidelines most often result in restrictive eating, weight preoccupation and conflict or anxiety. In adults and in children.

The alternative is the in...

6 Tips to Raise Emotionally Intelligent Children "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

We all make our best efforts to raise our children happy, healthy and prepared to face the world. We can buy the best gear, read all the parenting books and watch all the greatest parenting shows and still feel as though we are ill prepared to deal with the situations that may arise.

One of the more difficult topics to explain and focus on is that of emotions. Many adults continue to have difficulties in dealing with their own emotions, making it incredibly important to teach children how to express their feelings appropriately at a younger age.

Laura Markham, Ph.D., parenting coach, author, and editor of explained, All of us worry about our kids learning to control their emotions. After all, its emotions that so often get us off track and into trouble. And of course, we need to just say No sometimes. Kids cant run into the street, throw their food at each other, or pee on their baby brother. But setting limits on childrens behavior doesnt mean we need to set limits on what they feel.

In order to raise a child that is confident and intelligent in their emotional and mental selves, parents need to focus on teaching their children healthy ways to identify what they are feeling, and then process the emotions in question.

  1. Dont Label Any Emotions as Wrong

It is important to understand that there are no wrong emotions. While someone may be sad about something that wouldnt phase you. The fact that it isnt something you feel in the moment doesnt justify whether it is or isnt a valid emotion. We need to teach our children to embrace and identify any emotions without feeling the need to label them right or wrong.


  1. Dont Connect Emotions with Gender

Our society is full of stereotypes, which impair your childs ability to grow emotionally. The worst of these is the belief that real men dont show emotions. It is important for us to teach our children regardless of gender that it is healthy to feel and express their emotions, eliminating the belief that feelings are just for girls.


  1. Teach Effective Coping Strategies

When expressing and managing our emotions there are both positive and negative ways to cope with how we are feeling. Before you send your child out into the world it is important to equip them with some effective, positive ways that they can manage their...


NEO Completes Rebranding; Announces Blockchain Partnerships "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

NEO rebrand part 2

On June 22, Bitcoin Magazine reported that Antshares was embarking on a new rebranding strategy as part of its effort to lead blockchain development in China and around the world.

Now, on August 8, NEO Blockchain, Chinas first original public chain project, has announced the completion of rebranding efforts from its former Antshares identity. Furthermore, NEO has upgraded its blockchain nodes, technical documents, social media, official site and exchange name worldwide, representing the transition from Antshares 1.0 to the NEO smart contract system 2.0.

NEO now is the top 10 cryptocurrency in terms of market value. It hopes to capitalize on its Chinese connections by calling to mind the success stories of other Chinese behemoths like Alibaba and Tencent. Whereas a month ago NEO may have been trying to steal the spotlight from Ethereum, it now seems to be trying to carve its own path forward.

Compared with Ethereum, NEO claims its smart contracts perform better in terms of determinism, high scalability and compatibility. The developers of smart contracts can use JAVA, C/C# and GO to write smart contracts without the need to learn new languages like Solidity, making it attractive to the global developer community.

Powered by the Community

In the press conference held on June 22, Antshares announced its rebranding of NEO with an emphasis on upgrading itself to a smart economy platform with an integration of digital assets, digital identity and smart contracts. It has also introduced notable new features like a cross-chain protocol, quantum-resistant cryptography, a distributed storage protocol and a secure communication protocol.

Other new additions include PC web and mobile apps, as well as an introductory video about the project.

Da Hongfei, the founder of NEO, told Bitcoin Magazine:

NEOs development hinges on two important teams: one is the Shanghai-based development and management team, while the other is an international team called City of Zion, purely supported by the community, thanks to a huge number of volunteers for NEO.

The community just volunteered to translate the video and other materials into multiple languages. Furthermore, the technical white paper has also been translated by the community into English, Spanis...


13 Little Known Facts About Coffee "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

1. Caffeine is an alkaloid that the coffee plant uses to kill bugs, which eat its' seeds.

The coffee plant also uses caffeine in the coffee pods to kill surrounding plants, so the coffee plant can attain more sunlight and grow larger. Caffeine is a pesticide, which causes genetic termination in living cells that come into contact with it.

2. MRI images taken before and after 1 cup of coffee showed a decrease in blood flow to the brain by 45%. When the blood flow reduction was measured exactly, it was actually 52% less blood flow to the brain, after just one small cup of coffee.

3. Brain imaging studies of chronic coffee drinkers showed they presented the same degradation of their brains as chronic alcoholics, cigarette smokers, Parkinson's patients and marijuana users.

Situation Update for August 8, 2017

By Anna Von Reitz

The Chapter 7 bankruptcy of most of the world's municipal governments and the Chapter 11 bankruptcy of most of the world's territorial governments is a domino effect.

This primary funding source for the Territorial government services was provided by our ESTATES.  When our ESTATES which were being held and operated by the Municipal United States were subsumed into its Chapter 7 bankruptcy, they stopped producing income for the Territorial government. That, then, threw the Territorial government into Chapter 11.

Now you can see and grasp the chain reaction nature of the situation:

UNITED STATES "owns" and operates JOHN MICHAEL DOE estate as a franchise, the profit realized from JOHN MICHAEL DOE funds the USA, Inc.

So when the UNITED STATES goes into Chapter 7 liquidation, the funding for USA, Inc. stops, too.

The problem for good old John Michael Doe is that his estate should never have been mischaracterized as a franchise of the UNITED STATES in the first place, and he should not have his name or assets embroiled in a foreign bankruptcy.

So that's where you all are and that's what I and my Team are working to get you out of--- a foreign corporate bankruptcy that actually has nothing to do with you.

The rats are bucking the inevitable, but the rest of the world knows the Truth.

Now imagine that you don't know the value of anything on Earth, because nobody knows what the real debt is, how much money has been printed, or what the results of a free market valuation of commodities would be?

That's what the GCR Committee has been wrestling with.

Commodity markets have been manipulated and rigged for so long that there is no common sense basis for the valuation of anything.  You can't even estimate the value of a pork belly in an open market, because this whole system has been corrupt for over a hundred years--- but somehow, the GCR Committee is tasked with not only coming up with a total of supply of pork bellies, but a total of supply of printed pieces of paper needed to buy them, and then a current valuation complete with all the exchange rates.

Ever had the impulse to run screaming into the bushes, merely thinking about solving a pro...

"Kim Jong-Trump" - GCR/RV Sitrep - Tuesday - August 8, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Received via email from Yosef........

Just to be clear...

I don't hate Trump's politics. In fact, I could careless about his politics until he's out of office so we can RV.

I do loathe being lied to. And Trump is a walking, talking and tweeting lie for the Dark Nobility Families in Eastern Europe.

Know that North Korea is a Rothschild created nation state meant to test national MK Ultra mind control programming to use on the entire world by the same Dark Nobility Families of Eastern Europe, of which the Rothschild's are one of thirteen.

The Rothschild's also financed the nation state of Israel based on diplomatic war reparations for the holocaust caused by the German Nazi movement during WW2.

Ironically, Nazi is actually short for Ashkenazi, which is one of three genetic tribes of Israel all with Jewish religious origins, but actually from the Khzarian Empire which was located primarily in the nation state known today as the Ukraine.

Confused yet? I know. But stay with me fundamental Christians and upset true Hebrews. I'm not talking about religion here, but about deception using religion as cover.

Therefore, the current North Korean nuclear escalation is actually a Dark Nobility threat against China and Russia, not the USA; simply due to the geographic realities of traveling a slow moving ballistic missile over 5,500 miles to the American western coastline.

A much more realistic threat is said ballistic middles reaching Beijing and Moscow.

Lion's Gateway Focus: Old Program Matrix Collapses Individually & Collectively for Convergence on a Higher Plane of Existence - Transcending Your Dis-Empowered State of Mind
Your Consciousness Creates. It created, believed and supported the Old Earth Matrix, through your fears and your beliefs. You believed it all, because it WAS PHYSICALLY REAL at the time, yet it is no longer, unless you keep trying to make it so. Your fears keep you deeply embedded, your dis-empowered states. Your beliefs that you carry around with you, the stories that you tell yourself that keep you in this place. Your human is unaware that these realities are no longer true and that the STRUCTURES that held them in place (your unconsciousness) comes to a close, a conclusion, as your amnesia lifts and the dis-illusion becomes visible both within and outside of you.

There are two matrixes (actually there are more, yet for the sake of this, we speak only of 2). The Old Earth/Program Matrix (the human experience/experiment) and the Crystalline Matrix of NEW Earth. In order for each to come to BE fully on NEW EARTH, the ENERGY of Old Earth, the beliefs, the cellular programs/imprinting, the mentalities, the emotions that hold all in place must collapse/dissolve.... how this occurs will be up to each individual's choices on how to Exit the Old Matrix fully, once and for all. For awhile, many will have one foot in each dimension/world. This can only last for awhile, until all must "jump", get off the fence, step over/FULLY Cross Over/Transition Over to "The Other Side", beyond the Veils of Amnesia & onto a much higher dimensional timeline and choose to let the old completely go....
