Herbicides used with GM crops alter antibiotic resistance of disease-causing bacteria

A new study has found that exposure to the herbicides used on GM crops changes how susceptible disease-causing bacteria are to antibiotics. In many cases the bacteria became more antibiotic-resistant, though in other cases they became less so. The study was carried out by Prof Jack Heinemann, Dr Brigitta Kurenbach, and other scientists from New Zealand and Mexico. Below Prof Heinemann and Dr Kurenbach respond to questions from GMWatch.

GMW: What did you find?

Heinemann: When we exposed either of two different species of bacteria to common herbicides that we purchased at a local store, we found that the bacteria changed their response to antibiotics. They often became antibiotic resistant, but we also occasionally saw increased susceptibility or no effect.

Reuters Asks "Who Is More Of A Threat: Obama Or Putin", Surprised By The Answer

People in the United States feel under threat, both from beyond our borders and within them and as Reuters reports, when asked about both U.S. President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin, it was a pretty darn close call. A new Reuters/Ipsos poll finds a third of Republicans believe President Barack Obama poses an imminent threat to the United States, outranking concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Meanwhile, the world is certainly worried about America with about one quarter (of respondents from 65 countries) naming the United States as the greatest threat to world peace.

U.S. State Department ReWrites History

Catherine J. Frompovich
Activist Post

Have readers noticed that recently U.S. government and White House “mouth pieces” have taken to rewriting history? Below is a perfect example where the U.S. State Department’s spokesperson is talking about a ‘long-standing’ policy regarding overthrowing foreign governments.

"As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by nonconstitutional means. Political transitions must be democratic, constitutional, peaceful and legal." -- Spokesperson Jen Psaki

America’s ‘Media Watchdogs’ Hide US Ukrainian Nazification and Ethnic Cleansing

Weeks before she died, the FBI came knocking at our door, demanding that my mother testify in a secret trial proceeding against other former Panthers or face arrest. My mother, unable to walk, refused.

BEX Alert - "Germanwings hero: Captain remembered for attempts to save flight 4U9525"

While media are talking about Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot accused of deliberately crashing flight 4U9525, the man who tried save the passengers and crew seems to be left in the shadows. So what do we know about him?

“Open the damn door! For God's sake, open the door!” These were the last words of captain Patrick Sondheimer, desperately pleading for his silent co-pilot to let him return to the cockpit.

His numerous appeals were in vain. Lubitz didn’t react at all, and then the captain is heard grabbing an ax and trying to smash the door.

(Note: Is this another "United 93 Let's Roll" Hero meme being created for emotionally manipulative propaganda purposes as a diversion???)

ONE DEAD, ONE INJURED AFTER MINIVAN AND POLICE SUV COLLIDE AT ENTRANCE TO NSA

Fort Meade, Maryland – A shooting reportedly broke out at the NSA this morning after a car crash involving a police vehicle and a van that seems to have belonged to a civilian. One person on the scene has been reported dead, and at least two others were rushed to the emergency room to be treated for unknown injuries. It was reported that there was at least one police officer among those injured. The Anne Arundel County Police Department and Fire Department responded to the scene, but neither are able to make any statements on the incident because it occurred on NSA property.

Copyright Troll Perfect 10 Ordered To Pay $5.6 Million Over Bogus Lawsuit

Earlier this year, we noted that famed copyright trolling operation Perfect 10 had lost big time in its lawsuit against Giganews. Perfect 10 is a copyright trolling operation that pretends to be a pornographic magazine publisher, but whose main line of business has long been threatening online platforms to pay up linking to or hosting some of its content that users uploaded. While some online websites have paid up to avoid lawsuits, in basically every case that went to trial, Perfect 10 has lost big time, often setting very useful and very important precedents on copyright and fair use. If you haven't gone through Perfect 10's Hall of Fame in setting up great precedents for fair use and intermediary liability protections, check out some of the classics:

HOW CALIFORNIA'S DROUGHT WORKS: WE GROW FRUITS, NUTS AND VEGETABLES IN A DESERT WITH GOVERNMENT-SUBSIDIZED WATER

Agriculture is the heart of California’s worsening water crisis, and the stakes extend far beyond the state’s borders. Not only is California the world’s eighth largest economy, it is an agricultural superpower. It produces roughly half of all the fruits, nuts, and vegetables consumed in the United States—and more than 90 percent of the almonds, tomatoes, strawberries, broccoli and other specialty crops—while exporting vast amounts to China and other overseas customers.? Consuming 80 percent of California’s developed water but accounting for only 2 percent of the state’s GDP, agriculture thrives while everyone else is parched.

Isn't it obvious? If Operation Jade Helm were happening in any other country, it would be immediately labeled a military drill for martial law

Most Americans remain totally unaware of the fact that a massive military drill spanning 10 U.S. states will soon put military troops, helicopters, armored transports and military weapons directly on the streets of communities across the nation. "Operation Jade Helm begins in July and will last for eight weeks," reports the Daily Mail. "Soldiers will operate in and around towns in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Colorado where some of them will drop from planes while carrying weapons loaded with blanks in what military officials have dubbed Realistic Military Training."

The military drill labels Texas and Utah "hostile territory," where military special ops personnel are supposed to try to covertly move among the public, undetected.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A lot of people are worried about Jade Helm, and so am I as it telegraphs plans by the US Government to impose martial law at some point in the future. However I don't think it will happen during Jade Helm, as taking control of just ten states would provoke immediate hostile reactions from the remaining 40. When the dictatorship truly arrives, it will happen in all 50 states at once.

Nashville prosecutors require sterilization as part of plea deals

Nashville prosecutors have made sterilization of women part of plea negotiations at least four times in the past five years, and the district attorney has banned his staff from using the invasive surgery as a bargaining chip after the latest case.

In the most recent case, first reported by The Tennessean, a woman with a 20-year history of mental illness had been charged with neglect after her 5-day-old baby died mysteriously. Her defense attorney says the prosecutor assigned to the case wouldn’t go forward with a plea deal to keep the woman out of prison unless she had the surgery.

Yemen, Ukraine, and the Hypocrisy of ‘Aggression’

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

The military intervention in Yemen by a US-backed coalition of Arab states will undoubtedly inflame the conflict both in Yemen, and throughout the region. It is likely to be a protracted war involving many actors, each of which is interested in furthering its own political and geopolitical agenda.

However, it is the international reaction to this new regional war which is of particular interest; specifically, the way in which the United States has reacted to this undeniable aggression by its Gulf allies...

US Military Gloats Over ISIS Victories In Iraq, Rushes In To Save It From Iran

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

After Iraqi security forces and Shiite militias backed by Iran were unable to liberate the Iraqi city of Tikrit from Western-backed ISIS forces in a swift manner, the US military establishment is now gloating in a rather obvious and even childish fashion that the Iraqi military has been forced to return like a battered wife to the arms of the abuser yet again.

According to the Military Times, nearly 20,000 Shiite militias withdrew from the Tikrit battleground after the Iraqi government agreed to pause its cooperation and coordination with the Iranian government. The Iraqi government agreed to take control of all the military operations from here on...

Germanwings A320 Crash – Hollande Says FDR Memory Card “Missing”

In searching for information on this vital piece of evidence, I have come across two distinctly different official stories.

In one line of narrative, the FDR has not yet been found as of yesterday according to an article from this aviation site.

“The BEA has yet to hold a follow-up briefing on the investigation and it fell to the European Cockpit Association to remind the world that investigators have yet to find the aircraft’s flight data recorder, analysis of which could prove vital to confirming the facts.”

The other story is much more troubling… and that is… the FDR was found very early on according to someone who would have knowledge of the investigation (the President of France) but… THE MEMORY CARD HAD BEEN TAKEN.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WE are clearly not getting the real story about the crash of the Germanwings A320. There were initial reports that the Digital Flight Recorder had been located about the same time as the cockpit voice recorder. Then Hollande denied those reports. Then they claimed to have found the outer casing only. Now the story is that the Digital Flight Recorder had been foumd, but the memory card had popped out. Here is why this latest story is a lie.

The above is a diagram of a modern Digital Flight Recorder. It does not have a memory card like you would find in your camera or smart device, for the simple reason such cards could be dislodged in a crash. As you can see, there are multiple memory chips attached directly to circuit cards in a stack inside an armored casing. The memory system makes multiple copies of all data to preserve vital information even if one of two chips are destroyed by the impact. If the memory is no longer inside the recovered Digital Flight Recorder it is because someone intentionally removed it.

Top Gov’t. Scientists Say No to Vaccines for Their Kids

2.3% of kids in Los Alamos public schools don’t get vaccinated. Their parents have received exemptions.

That’s the highest rate of non-vaccination in the state.

We’re talking about parents who work at the US Los Alamos Labs.

People with advanced degrees in science.

People who work for the federal government.

You would think the vaccine rate in that environment would stand at 100%, no questions asked.

What do these people know? Why are they opting out of vaccinations for their kids?

BEX ALERT:Smoked dry: Massive marijuana cultivation has ‘lethal’ impact on California water supply – study

Reefer Madness is alive and well.

California's current drought has been caused by the demand for water needed to cultivate cannabis, which, under state law, is illegal for recreational use. Streams are running dry, fish are dying, and it’s just the beginning, US scientists warn.

The scientists, who studied the devastating environmental effects of marijuana cultivation in the region, concluded: “Due to climate change, water scarcity and habitat degradation in northern California is likely to worsen in the future.”
