Ancestry Websites Giving FBI Access to DNA Data; WikiLeaks Reveals CODIS Database Gifted To Other Countries; DHS Rolling Out Rapid DNA Nationwide

By Aaron Kesel

The FBI is abusing ancestry genealogy websites by tapping into their DNA data. What’s worse, these companies are giving up users’ data under presumed consent that is buried in their terms and conditions, according to several reports. FamilyTreeDNA is the first company known to be cooperating directly with the FBI to give its agents access to its genealogy database.

The company also seems to admonish those who opt out by suggesting that it could be a "moral responsibility" to give up private health info to the FBI...

DOCTOR WHO WAS PAID BY PURDUE TO PUSH OPIOIDS TO TESTIFY AGAINST DRUGMAKER

A doctor who led the charge for mass prescribing of opioids in the US, and was then paid by Purdue Pharma to help drive sales of OxyContin, is to testify against the drugmaker and other companies facing a raft of lawsuits over America’s opioid epidemic.

Dr Russell Portenoy, who many experts believe did more than any other specialist to erode longstanding caution within the medical profession over prescribing opioids because of addiction fears, has agreed to cooperate with lawyers for cities and counties suing drug makers, distributors and pharmacies in return for dropping legal actions against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many prescribing physicians do write prescriptions for medications which have NOT been legally released to deal with the kind of medical issues with which you are dealing; but they have been approved for "off book" uses under certain circumstances.

And for many MDs, this is a very simple way of "adding value" to their practice's receivables.

The first EVER image of a black hole's event horizon: Scientists unveil groundbreaking observations from global virtual telescope that has now 'seen what we thought was unseeable'

Scientists have lifted the veil on the first images ever captured of a black hole’s event horizon.

In a highly-anticipated string of press conferences held simultaneously around the world on Wednesday, the team behind the Event Horizon Telescope revealed the findings from their first run of observations.

Using a ‘virtual telescope’ built from eight radio observatories positioned at different points on the globe, the international team has spent the last few years probing Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, and another target called M87 in the Virgo cluster of galaxies.

While black holes are invisible by nature, the ultra-hot material swirling in their midst forms a ring of light around the perimeter that reveals the mouth of the object itself based on its silhouette. This boundary is known as the event horizon.

Watch: Air NZ uses 3D printer for speedy, 'world-first' seat part replacement at LAX

Air New Zealand is claiming a 3D printing world-first for a speedy seat repair before a flight left LA.

A proof-of-concept trial involved a "bumper," a part which sits behind the airline's Business Premier monitors and prevents the screen from damaging the seat when it's pushed in.

The airline ordered a digital aircraft part file from Singapore-based ST Engineering.

The digital file was immediately sent to an approved printer, operated by Moog in Los Angeles, downloaded and 3D printed before being installed within hours on an Air New Zealand Boeing 777-300 aircraft ahead of its scheduled departure from LAX.

U.S. Day of Action Demanding Telecoms Suspend 5G Installation Since No Studies Show 5G Exposure is Safe

By B.N. Frank

It’s a shame that 5G has already been installed and continues to be installed in many American communities.  Last summer, Dr. Naomi Wolf reported about 5G being installed in New York City but only after residents and their pets became sick.

Overseas, the first 5G court case was won in Gateshead, England last year - but not until after it had been installed, residents became sick, and some women delivered stillborn babies...

SpaceX Delays 1st Commercial Launch of Falcon Heavy Rocket to Wednesday

SpaceX has postponed the launch of its first commercial Falcon Heavy mission from NASA's Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida to no earlier than Wednesday (April 10).

"Now targeting Falcon Heavy launch of Arabsat-6A on Wednesday, April 10 – weather forecast improves to 80% favorable," SpaceX representatives wrote in a Twitter update today (April 9). Liftoff is scheduled for 6:35 p.m. EDT (2235 GMT) from NASA's historic Pad 39A at KSC. The launch window extends for just under 2 hours.

SpaceX had been targeting a launch on Tuesday (April 9) at 6:36 p.m. EDT (2236 GMT). The weather forecast for that target was dismal, with just a 30% chance of good weather at launch time, according to 45th Weather Squadron based at the nearby Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.

The Reason Big Pharma and Big Food Want You to Think Eggs are Bad – And Why They Are Not

Diabetes type 2 has become epidemic in cultures that have embraced western processed food diets. There have been some epidemiological surveys that have managed to associate egg consumption with an increased risk of diabetes.

Those seem to be publicized more than studies that have the different conclusions. Finland has recently shown other conclusions with both a large, unbiased epidemiological study and a follow-up study that analyzed metabolic features among egg eaters.

Both concluded that those who enjoy eggs in their diet have less risk of diabetes.

10 Percent of All U.S. Deaths are Now Due to Medical Error

Medical advances have reduced the rate of death by heart disease, cancer, and other illnesses, allowing Americans to live much longer than previous generations. But a recent report from Johns Hopkins safety experts raises concerns about the quality of medical care people are receiving.

As reported on the Johns Hopkins website, a review of medical death rate data shows that medical errors have caused more than 250,000 deaths each year. This represents about 1 in 10 deaths—a staggering rate. Medical errors have now leapfrogged respiratory illnesses as the third leading cause of death in the country.

Medical TYRANNY: If you question vaccines in Australia, you could be thrown in prison for 10 YEARS

Freedom of speech has taken another major hit Down Under, as government authorities in Australia recently decreed that any medical professional who dares to express skepticism about the safety or effectiveness of vaccines will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law, including a potential prison sentence of up to 10 years.

Nurses and midwives who try to explain to pregnant women that some vaccines contain neurotoxic mercury (thimerosal), for instance, or that aborted human fetal tissue is often used to manufacture vaccines, will now face the ire of Australia’s medical police state, which insists that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective.

The Australian government has also set up a snitch program for medical “offenders” to be reported by their “friends,” colleagues, or others who suspect that they might be in violation of this new speech code – like some kind of deep state spying and surveillance scheme contrived from the dystopian novel 1984.

Crushed by a tree at 21 - the Kiwi tech behind Ossis helped him recover

When Tauranga local Jacob* was 21 years old, he was crushed under the weight of a collapsed tree.

The damage was so severe that doctors had to rebuild his hip with a complex surgical implant over the course of numerous surgeries, which ultimately gave him the ability to return to kite surfing and the other outdoor activities he had long enjoyed.

At the forefront of this evolution was a Kiwi tech firm called Ossis which specialises in the development of custom-made implants that are an exact match to the requirements of the patient. It was exactly the kind of technology Jacob's doctor felt could make a long-lasting difference to his patient.

Ossis engineers set about designing Jacob's implant using 3D tech to closely match his existing skeleton based on computer modelling of his hip anatomy. This meant that Jacob would eventually receive an implant that perfectly matched the requirements of his body.

Disease Outbreaks Among Fully Vaccinated Students Show Insanity Behind Mandatory Vaccination Laws

A federal judge in New York earlier this month (March, 2019) denied the parents of 42 healthy, non-vaccinated students, the right to attend the Green Meadow Waldorf School simply because they were not vaccinated for measles, even though no cases of measles had been reported at the school.

During the same time period school officials across the country in Los Angeles sent home 50 fully vaccinated sick students at Harvard-Westlake School with the contagious whooping cough.

Terrence Popp is quite a character.

If you watch his Redonkulas episodes over on YouTube regularly (which I do), then you will see that he comes across as something of a roaring asshole. He is very sarcastic, very blunt, doesn't give a damn about your feelings, and takes absolutely no prisoners while he breaks down the stupidities and insanities of our modern world using maths and logic.

He has no patience whatsoever for idiots, fatties, losers, and especially feminists. (Lord, forgive me my redundancies.) And if you judge Popp purely by what you see on his YouTube channel, you will get a rather skewed and deeply inaccurate picture of the man.

MEDICAL ALERT: Hospitals are releasing deadly superbug fungi into the open air, “colonizing” the population with dangerous pathogens that have a 41% – 88% fatality rate

Imagine a dystopian science-fiction future where hospital ventilation systems are pumping out a deadly superbug, right into the open atmosphere, where winds carry it to local communities and farms, infecting crops and foods with chemical-resistant fungal strains that have a reported 41% – 88% fatality rate in humans. And imagine the CDC knew about it, but refused to tell you which hospitals were infected. Local hospitals hid the fact that their own hospital rooms and intensive care units were being overrun with this fatal fungi, and that all the world’s epidemiological experts had no idea where the pathogen had come from or how to stop it.

But they all kept it a secret, because they didn’t want to “alarm” the public. And they sure didn’t want hospitals to be seen as hubs of superbug infections.

Well, imagine no more. This is real. It’s happening right now.

A DRUG RESISTANT “SUPER FUNGUS” KILLS NEARLY HALF THE PEOPLE IT INFECTS – AND IT IS SPREADING ACROSS AMERICA

SOURCE: THE ECONOMIC COLLAPSE

The medical community knew that a day of reckoning was coming. For years, they were repeatedly warned that the rampant overuse of certain types of medications would result in the development of “super diseases” that we would not be able to stop, and now that day has arrived. Just like many types of bacteria, fungi have also been developing defenses against our most effective modern medicines. One in particular, a fungus known as Candida auris, is now a massive public health threat. An expert quoted by the New York Times has admitted that it is “pretty much unbeatable”, it spreads very easily, and it kills close to 50 percent of the people that it infects. In other words, we are in the early chapters of a medical horror show of our own making, and there is no way out.

Candida auris (or C. auris for short) spreads most easily among those with weakened immune systems. Infants, seniors, smokers and diabetics are among the most vulnerable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please educate yourself on what natural methods you can use to keep yourself healthier. There are a number of responsible, logical sites which can give you places to go, and natural things to do to boost your immunity.

Alberta in Canada has Tried a Carbon Tax — It’s Been a Disaster

By Robert P. Murphy

The Fraser Institute in Canada recently released my study critiquing the province of Alberta’s approach to carbon pricing. My analysis for Fraser confirms what I’ve been arguing on the pages of IER for years: in the United States, conservatives and libertarians should run from any “carbon tax deal” that promises to shrink the size of government while battling climate change. No matter their promises, in practice government-imposed “carbon pricing” schemes never live up to the guidelines for “efficiency” laid down by their proponents. In this post I’ll illustrate myth vs. reality in the case of Alberta...

Government committee declares HPV vaccines should never be given to teenage boys … Media pursues total BLACKOUT on the story

A finding by the U.K.’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), that it is not advisable to administer the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine to boys, has been met with absolute outrage and a virtual media blackout. Medical professionals in that country have been so indoctrinated by pharmaceutical companies to believe that this vaccine is life-saving that, according to The Guardian, 94 percent of general practitioners and 97 percent of dentists believe that both boys and girls should receive the shot.

All British girls between the age of 12 and 13 have been offered the HPV vaccine as part of the National Health Service’s immunization program since 2008. The JCVI has been deliberating for three years about whether this program should also be extended to include boys.

Japan's Hayabusa2 Shoots Copper Bomb at Asteroid Ryugu to Create Artificial Crater

Update: JAXA officials announced this morning (April 5) that the impactor did indeed hit Ryugu. Mission team members are now working to confirm that a detectable crater was generated.

A Japanese spacecraft deployed a heavy, explosive-packed copper plate toward the asteroid Ryugu in an attempt to create an artificial crater last night (April 4), but it's still unclear how the dramatic operation went.

The Hayabusa2 spacecraft, which has been studying the 3,000-foot-wide (900 meters) Ryugu up close since last June, released a 4.4-lb. (2 kilograms) hunk of copper late last night, along with a camera known as DCAM3 to record this "Small Carry-on Impactor" (SCI) operation.

SCIENTISTS FOUND AN EDIBLE MUSHROOM THAT EATS PLASTIC, AND IT COULD CLEAN OUR LANDFILLS

But as we well know, plastic is a double-edged sword, with massive amounts of plastic waste not only piling up in landfills, but floating in the most remote depths of our oceans and water supplies. And despite our knowledge of plastic’s harmful effects on the environment, we’ve become so reliant on plastic that there seems to be no end in sight. In fact, plastic production is growing on a yearly basis–and posing a potentially mortal threat to us all.

However, a newly-discovered type of mushroom could not only play a crucial role in slashing plastic pollution, but could have myriad other uses in addressing the environmental crises the planet faces.

Discovered in 2012 by Yale University students, Pestalotiopsis microspora is a rare species of mushroom from the Amazon rainforest that’s capable of subsisting on a diet of pure plastic, or more accurately, the main ingredient in plastic–polyurethane–before converting the human-made ingredient into purely organic matter.

Quack “skeptic” Stephen Barrett exposed as agent provocateur working to discredit natural medicine on Wikipedia

Over the past year, Richard Gale and his team of sleuths from the Progressive Radio Network (PRN) put many hours’ worth of legwork into digging up every detail they could find about Barrett and his fellow anti-truth cronies, as well as their ongoing collusion with Wikipedia. They then compiled what they uncovered into 24 separate investigative stories, unveiling a treasure trove of truth about Big Tech and Big Pharma’s relentless war against natural medicine.

In its piece on Barrett and Wikipedia specifically, PRN revealed that the “skeptics” have basically hijacked editorial control over all of the Wikipedia entries associated with things like chiropractic, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), homeopathy, naturopathy, and many other forms of natural medicine, and altered them with descriptions basically pegging them as unsubstantiated “quackery.”

Chrome plating on the bronze weapons of China's Terracotta Army is decorative varnish NOT a preservation technique as previously thought

The mystery of the Terracotta Army's shiny swords and spears has been solved, according to British scientists.

The world famous Terracotta Army of Xi'an consists of thousands of life-sized ceramic figures representing warriors.

Chrome plating on thousands of their bronze weapons was thought to be the earliest form of anti-rust technology - thousands of years before it arrived in the West.

But the steely grey metal formed by chance through a chemical reaction between a decorative and the low organic content of surrounding soil, the research claims.

The lacquer was used to treat wooden parts of the weapons - such as shafts, grips and scabbards.

According to a brand new report that was just released, Americans had to borrow 88 billion dollars to cover their medical bills last year. That is a truly astounding number, and it shows just how dramatically our current health care system has failed. And even though the vast majority of Americans are covered by “health insurance”, millions of us are deathly afraid to go to the hospital because of what it might cost.

Indian satellite missile test was a 'terrible thing' that created 400 pieces of debris and endangered astronauts on board the International Space Station, says NASA

NASA has told India that blowing up one of its own satellites with a ballistic missile was a 'terrible thing' that created 400 pieces of space debris.

Jim Bridenstine, head of NASA, said that some of the debris is now moving towards the International Space Station, creating a risk for astronauts on board.

Bridenstine said the explosion had created 60 pieces of debris that are large enough to track - meaning 10cm (6ins) or larger - and of those, 24 are moving into a position where they could threaten the ISS.
