GLYPHOSATE | MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! STOP SPRAYING (EDUCATE YOURSELF & GET TESTED)

WOULD YOU GIVE YOUR CHILD A COOKIE IF IT CONTAINED GLYPHOSATE?

Before you get into the meat of things, let’s answer a question that you don’t have yet but that you will have about 2 minutes into reading this article:

“Really? It can’t be that bad, can it?”

It’s natural to be skeptical about glyphosate being a threat your health. The FDA and other food regulatory agencies come out with a “safety” report every year that regurgitates the same message that you ...

DAVID MASCI – About one-fifth of adults globally have no formal schooling

In many parts of the world, particularly in poorer countries, attainment of even the most basic education is still far from universal. Indeed, roughly one-in-five adults (19%) around the globe have no formal schooling at all, according to a recent Pew Research Center report on education that also studied its relationship to religion.

While virtually all adults in Europe (98%) and English-speaking North America (99%) have at least some education, four-in-ten in the Middle East and North Africa ...

Edward Helmore – US increased weapons sales in 2015 despite slight drop in global arms trade

The sale of global arms dropped slightly last year to $80bn from 2014’s $89bn, according to a new congressional study, with the US maintaining its position as the world’s dominant supplier.

But at $40bn the US market share of weapons sales amounted to about half of all arms agreements in 2015, and more than double the orders recorded by France, its nearest rival with $15bn in sales. The US and France both grew their market shares, by around $4bn and $9bn ...

Pratap Chatterjee – Tomgram: Pratap Chatterjee, Obama’s Last Chance

Imagine this scenario: you’ve occupied an office for eight years and now you’re about to move out. You know who’s going to move in and, by reputation, he’s a fellow with a minimal ability to control himself who might conceivably be a danger to others. So here’s one thing you undoubtedly wouldn’t do: leave a loaded revolver in the top desk drawer and a stash of extra ammunition in the closet.

However — if you’ll excuse the analogy — that seems ...

Kirsten Brodde – Black Friday: Breathe, take a break – the planet can’t handle it anymore

Instead of chasing prey in the jungle like our ancestors did, we chase bargain clothing that seems like a good deal. Just look at the scenes that take place every year in American shopping malls on the fourth Friday of November, when people try to secure a favourable position in the queue outside shops in the early hours of the morning. One could say “Black Friday” deserves its name: Every year dozens of people are crushed, even to death, as ...

World’s oldest person: last living human born in 1800s turns 117

Emma Morano, the last known person alive who was born in the 19th century, has celebrated her 117th birthday.

Born on 29 November 1899, four years before the Wright brothers first took to the air, she is the world’s oldest living person. Her life has spanned three centuries, two world wars and over 90 Italian governments.

And the secret to her longevity appears to lie in eschewing usual medical wisdom.

Lauren McCauley – UN Observers Monitoring Abuses Against Standing Rock Water Protectors

The increasingly violent attacks by North Dakota police and private security forces against peaceful, Indigenous water protectors have caught the nation’s attention as well as that of the United Nations, an arm of which has begun an investigation into the protesters’ claims of human rights abuses, including “excessive force, unlawful arrests, and mistreatment in jail,” the Guardian reported late Monday.

Observers have begun collecting testimonies from those protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline and, on Monday, Grand Chief Edward John, ...

Richard Gale and Gary Null

Progressive Radio Network, October 31, 2016

 

 

Joshua Hadfield was a normal, healthy developing child as a toddler. In the midst of the 2010 H1N1 swine flu frenzy and fear mongering about the horrible consequences children face if left unvaccinated, the Hadfield’s had Joshua vaccinated with Glaxo’s Pandermrix influenza vaccine.  Within weeks, Joshua could barely wake up, sleeping up to nineteen hours a day.  Laughter would trigger seizures.

 

Joshua was diagnosed with narcolepsy, “an ...

My Mother’s First Love at Age 93, by Caroline Leavitt

My mother falls in love for the first time at 93.

She is not a woman who believes in love. Jilted at 19, she marries my father on the rebound, quickly realizing her error. He’s a man who can sulk for days, who yells at her because she has forgotten to compliment his mother on dinner, or because she spends too much money. They rarely touch or speak, and I grow up wanting to be ...
