The Last Bullfight

From my vantage point on the roof of a nearby building, the crowd of seminude protesters formed the shape of a bleeding bull—a vivid statement against … Continue reading The Last Bullfight

Is this the only universe?

Artwork by Sandbox Studio, Chicago with Ana Kova by Laura Dattaro Our universe could be just one small piece of a bubbling multiverse. Human history has been a journey toward insignificance. As we’ve gained more knowledge, we’ve had our planet downgraded from the center of the universe to a chunk of rock orbiting an average star in a galaxy that is one among billions. So it only makes sense that many physicists now believe that even our universe might be just a small piece of a greater whole. In fact, there may be infinitely many universes, bubbling into existence and growing … Continue reading Is this the only universe?

Switzerland’s central bank just lost $52 billion

The Swiss Franc is getting crushed. Most banks around the world couldn’t survive losing $50 billion in six months. But most banks don’t print their own money. The Swiss National Bank, Switzerland’s central bank, announced on Friday that it suffered a first-half loss of 50.1 billion Swiss francs ($52 billion), the vast majority of which was from the decline in value of its holdings of euros. The reason the bank held so many euros was that for several years, the bank maintained a peg against the euro, wherein it would not allow the value of the franc to rise above 1.2 euros, … Continue reading Switzerland’s central bank just lost $52 billion

‘Gene drive’ technology makes mutations ‘dominate’ when two insects mate – making them likely to spread the change to the next generation Experts compare the method to an unstoppable ‘nuclear chain reaction’ Used for good, the technique could in theory be used to eliminate mosquito borne illnesses such as malaria or yellow fever as the genes will spread But the GM creatures could be used to spread lethal diseases By COLIN FERNANDEZ FOR THE DAILY MAIL Scientists warn that a new technique to spread ‘supercharged’ genes in insects could be used by terrorists to deliberately cause an environmental disaster.

The New World Order Feudal Enslavement System

The New World Order Feudal Enslavement System Totalitarian Collectivism “The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” A letter written by FDR to Colonel House, November 21st, 1933 From times immemorial, the top down authority imposition has been the rule.

A Monsanto Food List to Avoid

by SallyPainter A Monsanto food list has been circulated around the Internet for the past three years advising consumers to boycott the companies listed as using Monsanto GMO products (1). Some of those posting this list claim that Monsanto “owns” these companies, which is incorrect (2). Any list composed of Monsanto GMO foods to avoid should reflect substantiated data that the company is specifically using Monsanto’s GMO food products. So far, all that is being shown is a list with no supporting documents. Since food companies aren’t required to list GMO foods on labels, it’s nearly impossible to know for … Continue reading A Monsanto Food List to Avoid

‘Massive 1.2 mile wide asteroid may strike Earth in 2019′, said NASA before changing story just 4 days later

NASA GODDARD SPACE FLIGHT CENTER/FLICKR CONTINENT KILLER, NEAR-EARTH OBJECT, APPROACHING, DATE DEFINED By Shepard Ambellas (INTELLIHUB) — Shockingly a massive 1.2 mile diameter asteroid named (89959) 2002 NT7 was in fact assigned a positive impact rating on the Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale, meaning that the object will likely strike earth on some future date. In fact a press release written by Don Yeomans of NASA, published July 24, 2002, concluded the object’s “low-probability of earth impact in 2019.” To make matters worse Yeomans also determined that (89959) 2002 NT7 is such a new discovery that “the limited number of … Continue reading ‘Massive 1.2 mile wide asteroid may strike Earth in 2019′, said NASA before changing story just 4 days later
