The sea is boiling off of the coast of Fukushima, Japan and the picture below has been called a viral photo of the day by Coolbuster. Check out the picture, what is that all about? It certainly can’t be good for any plant or animal life left off of the coast of Japan… if this radiation keeps leaking, and there’s no way to stop it, will boiling seas spread all the way across the Pacific Ocean to the West Coast of the United States? If so, what happens then? We are so ‘fuked’. Three brand new video reports below share … Continue reading ‘Boiling Sea’ Off Fukushima Viral Photo Of The Day

BIOTECH’S NEXT LINE OF DEFENSE: CARTOONS ARE USED TO PROGRAM KIDS TO ACCEPT GMOS – See more at: http://www.theorganicprepper.ca/biotechs-next-line-of-defense-cartoons-are-used-to-program-kids-to-accept-gmos-08302013#sthash.alanS1eU.dpuf

What is the best way to change public perceptions on any topic? Through entertainment. The battle to control us through changing (or creating) our opinions is as old as history. Carefully disseminated disinformation was first documented in ancient Greece, when playwrights and poets created dramas for the sole purpose of indoctrinating their audience to a certain set of morals, standards, and beliefs. When creating his empire, Macedonian king Alexander the Great inundated the places he conquered with his image, on the coins, adorning building, and in the form of statues. Grand stories were written and shared about his generosity and … Continue reading BIOTECH’S NEXT LINE OF DEFENSE: CARTOONS ARE USED TO PROGRAM KIDS TO ACCEPT GMOS – See more at: http://www.theorganicprepper.ca/biotechs-next-line-of-defense-cartoons-are-used-to-program-kids-to-accept-gmos-08302013#sthash.alanS1eU.dpuf

The One Graph That Sums Up Why We’re Going to War With Syria

If ever there was a sign of the military industrial complex in America, this graph is it. Reports that the United States is very near to launching an attack against Syria to punish Damascus for the use of chemical weapons sent Raytheon’s stock price to a 52-week high this week. Who is Raytheon? The manufacturer of the BGM-109, more commonly known as the Tomahawk missile, the weapon of choice of the Obama administration in any strike against Syria. Raytheon stock has surged over the past two months, coinciding with the biggest U.S. military build-up America has mounted since it launched … Continue reading The One Graph That Sums Up Why We’re Going to War With Syria

Why Fukushima is worse than you think

By Mycle Schneider, Special to CNN Editor’s note: Mycle Schneider is an independent international consultant on energy and nuclear policy based in Paris. He is the coordinator and lead author of the World Nuclear Industry Status Report. The views expressed are his own. “Careless” was how Toyoshi Fuketa, commissioner of the Japanese Nuclear Regulation Authority, reportedly described the inspection quality of hundreds of water tanks at the crippled Fukushima plant following the recent discovery of a serious radioactive spill. China’s Foreign Ministry went further, saying it was “shocking” that radioactive water was still leaking into the Pacific Ocean two years … Continue reading Why Fukushima is worse than you think

Poverty strains cognitive abilities, opening door for bad decision-making, new study finds

By Brady Dennis, Published: August 30 E-mail the writer Poverty consumes so much mental energy that people struggling to make ends meet often have little brainpower left for anything else, leaving them more susceptible to bad decisions that can perpetuate their situation, according to a study published Thursday in the journal Science. “Past research has often blamed [poverty] on the personal failings of the poor. They don’t work hard enough; they’re not focused enough,” said University of British Columbia professor Jiaying Zhao, who co-authored the study as a Princeton University graduate student. “What we’re arguing is it’s not about the … Continue reading Poverty strains cognitive abilities, opening door for bad decision-making, new study finds

The Placebo Effect Is Real

In the last decade, the study of placebo has moved from the backwaters of medical research to nearer the mainstream. There is now a Program in Placebo Studies at Harvard. NIH and nonprofits like the Robert Wood Johnson Foundationfund placebo work. Journals publish papers. What used to be dismissed is now taken increasingly seriously. It’s fair to say this shift wouldn’t have happened without Ted Kaptchuk, who heads Harvard’s placebo program. Over 35 years, he’s been investigating placebos, which are medical interventions without active drug ingredients, in various contexts and expanding the scope of the field–including, for a time, to … Continue reading The Placebo Effect Is Real

The Insane and Exciting Future of the Bionic Body

Bertolt Meyer pulls off his left forearm and gives it to me. It’s smooth and black, and the hand has a clear silicone cover, like an iPhone case. Beneath the rubbery skin are skeletal robotic fingers of the sort you might see in a sci-fi movie—the “cool factor,” Meyer calls it. “Can I touch it?” I ask. “Go ahead,” he says. I run my hand along the sticky silicone and it helps dispel my unease—the stump may look strange, but the arm feels strong and healthy. Meyer, 33, is slightly built and has dark features and a friendly face. A … Continue reading The Insane and Exciting Future of the Bionic Body
