One glimpse at a few days suring 2007/8 and it is clear that 'someone' with infinitely deep pockets was able to support markets on several critical days – though, of course, anyone proclaiming intervention was propagandized away as a conspiracy theory wonk. However, as Dr. Pippa Malmgren – a former member of the U.S. President’s Working Group on Financial Markets – it is not conspiracy theory, it is conspiracy fact: "there's no price discovery anymore by the market… governments impose prices on the market."
Geoengineering Watch Global Alert News (yogmonster)
What was, will not be for much longer. Power structures around the globe are advancing their agendas by the day. Can these agendas, and the decimation they are causing, be exposed and halted in time to salvage anything? The answer to that question may yet depend on our collective actions, or inactions. What will our priorities be? How many will add their voices to the effort of waking the masses?
Modern Civil War Without Guns — So Far! (thc0655)
If the late Mr. Minzey is correct, it is only a matter of time before current conditions turn violent or parts of the country attempt to secede. The divisions are so pronounced that it is difficult to see how they are solved within the current political framework and consistent with our Constitution.
This shift in teens’ social media use is just one example of how the technology landscape for young people has evolved since the Center’s last survey of teens and technology use in 2014-2015. Most notably, smartphone ownership has become a nearly ubiquitous element of teen life: 95% of teens now report they have a smartphone or access to one. These mobile connections are in turn fueling more-persistent online activities: 45% of teens now say they are online on a near-constant basis.
“Thomas just wouldn’t do anything other than play on his computer and phone. I’d lock digital devices up in my safe, but he’d outsmart me.” An avid gamer, he reached the point in which she couldn’t even get him out of bed in the morning to go to school. “Little did I know he’d been up all night playing video games on a laptop that he’d been able to take home from his private school.”
On Tuesday, the Supreme Court reversed that decision. Writing for the court majority, Justice Sonia Sotomayor said the private area around a house, known as the curtilage, is part of the home itself and cannot be searched without a warrant. The court rejected the police's contention that the motorcycle was like an automobile, which the court has long ruled can be searched without a warrant if an officer sees something in plain sight.
NASA and other space agencies — as well as individuals like Elon Musk— are actively working towards creating settlements on Mars. But before humans can attempt to establish long-term outposts on Mars or elsewhere in space, we have a lot to consider. Beyond the logistics of space travel, food, water, breathable air, and radiation, there's the question of human reproduction.
Other severe health conditions seem to produce a much more robust public-health response than opioids have. One in five Americans gets skin cancer before age 70, for example. Therefore, many states ban the use of tanning beds among minors, dermatologists regularly check their patients’ moles, and millions are spent each year on skin-cancer awareness.
Are Plants Conscious? (tmn)
If consciousness literally means being “with knowledge,” then plants fit the bill perfectly. Of course, they do not have the sense organs we are used to, such as the eyes and the ears, to receive stimuli from the environment. But they do have cells and tissues (say, photosensitive receptor cells) that do the trick as well as—and sometimes better than—an animal or human eye or ear would. The data they receive from the constantly changing world is essential for their survival. In fact, they change in tune with the world and with the seasons, growing when the conditions are optimal, or shedding leaves and bringing life to a minimum in the cold of winter.
10 Everyday Items That Emit Radiation (Thomas R.)
Don't think bananas and Brazil nuts are the only radioactive foods out there. Basically, any food that is high in potassium naturally contains potassium-40 and is slightly, but significantly radioactive. This includes potatoes (radioactive french fries), carrots, lima beans and red meat. Carrots, potatoes, and lima beans also contain some radon-226. When you get right down to it, all food contains a small amount of radioactivity. You eat food, so you are slightly radioactive, too.
What Would Happen if All the Bees Died Tomorrow? (Thomas R.)
While bees are not the only pollinators we have (bats, birds, butterflies, and some flies can do this work, too), they're by far the best creatures for the job. In part, this is because they need pollen to feed their larvae, so they're biologically driven to gather the stuff. Other pollinators visit flowers only to suck nectar, and any pollen that sticks to them in the process is a happy accident.
