by: Ethan Huff (Natural News) A mentally-ill, gender-dysphoric person from Maine who back on Halloween of 2016 decided to murder both of “her” parents in cold blood is now trying to justify this gruesome act by claiming that “her” mom and dad just weren’t “tolerant” enough of “her” transgenderism. “Andrea” Balcer, born as Andrew Balcer, reportedly plunged “a hunting knife into his mother’s back as she comforted him in his bedroom,” according to CentralMaine.com.

Seismic waves, originating from the French island of Mayotte, between Africa and Madagascar, traveled around the world. They were recorded throughout Africa and as far away as Chile, New Zealand, Canada and Hawaii, nearly 11,000 miles away.

Herbicide Is What’s for Dinner

How the biggest farming practice you’ve never heard of is changing your food. BY MIRANDA HART Driving down a grid road in central Saskatchewan, a machine that looks like a giant insect approaches me in a cloud of dust. The cab, hanging 8 feet above the road, is suspended by tires at least 6 feet tall, with wing-like appendages folded along each side. Should I drive around it or under it? It is harvest season, and the high-clearance sprayer is on its way to desiccate a field. Desiccation may be the most widespread farming practice you’ve never heard of. Farmers … Continue reading Herbicide Is What’s for Dinner

Our Brains Could Actually Have Bacteria Living Inside, New Evidence Suggests

Bacteria in a slice of brain tissue, to the left of a blood vessel (Roberts et al) by PETER DOCKRILL The microbes that inhabit the human gut are thought to be responsible for many things, affecting our health, our genes, and even our emotions. Scientists are continually making new discoveries about the scale and influence of the human microbiome, but the latest evidence is particularly startling: this thriving bacterial kingdom might not be alone, but could be linked to a separate “human brain microbiome” that resides in your head. The findings, which are only preliminary at this stage, were recently presented at a poster session at the Neuroscience … Continue reading Our Brains Could Actually Have Bacteria Living Inside, New Evidence Suggests

The Benefits of a Short Attention Span

LUCI GUTIÉRREZ Chronic distraction has its upsides. by BEN HEALY Our supposedly shrinking attention spans are a hot topic these days—as you may have seen on TV or heard on a podcast or read on Twitter or glimpsed on your watch or else just intuited from the antsy melancholy of those few unbearable minutes each morning between when you open your eyes and when you first reach for your phone. Emblematic of the genre is a 2015 Microsoft report that claimed the average human attention span had shrunk from 12 seconds in 2000 to eight seconds in 2013 (even shorter than … Continue reading The Benefits of a Short Attention Span
