Buying Land "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I am looking at buying a few acres of land. This is an undeveloped lot. They say there is electric that I can hook into but water/well and septic is on me. I did not see a soils report but I think that is important when buying land in the Rocky Mountains. Have checked the map and the land is not land-locked but I need to check ownership of the dirt road. I have spent years gather knowledge as to what to look for and ask about when buying and existing house. Any advice on what to ask or look...

Running Shoes With Greatest Comfort Promote Highest Injury Risk "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Karen Foster

Highly-cushioned running shoes are meant to protect against injuries, but they may actually do the opposite by changing the way we run, research suggests.

Humans have been running for hundreds of thousands of years, and of course for most of that time we ran barefoot. Modern running shoes were actually only invented in the 1970s. Since that time, back, hip, knee and ankle overuse injuries, including tendonitis, and muscle disorders have only increased. So health experts came up with what they thought was a novel approachnamely that we need more support from our footwear. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Every year, its estimated that at least one-third of runners get stress fractures, shin splints or muscle or joint injuries caused by repeated pounding of the pavement. Many shoe manufacturers have added extra padding to try to soften the impact on the legs, but injury rates have not decreased as a result.

A new study suggests this is because the extra cushioning changes the spring-like mechanics of the legs as they run, which actually means we experience more tissue damage with every stride.

The Daily: Japan Calls All Coins Crypto Assets, Russia Confirms Their Property Status

The Financial Services Agency of Japan has resolved to refer to cryptocurrencies as crypto assets in order to prevent confusion with legal tender. Also in The Daily, the Justice Ministry in Moscow has confirmed that it classifies digital coins as other property. Finally, according to a recent report, stablecoins have seen significant growth over the past few months.

Peter Brooks Meditation on Guilt "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Kalieaswari Srinivasan in The Prisoner (photo by Simon Annand)

Peter Brook and Marie-Hlne Estiennes The Prisoner at Theatre for a New Audience in Brooklyn is a tale of incest and punishment evocative of Greek tragedy. It is performed as if by a traveling troupe of actors wandering from village to village in an ahistorical world. The 93-year-old Brook, who has been directing theater since his 1943 London premiere, co-founded the International Centre for Theatre Research in Paris. Since 1974 it has been housed in the Thtre des Bouffes du Nord, where The Prisoner originated.

Except for occasional mentions of modern technology in the narrative, the script and performance style of The Prisoner strive for a timeless quality, a myth or a parable, as Brook and Estienne describe it in the program note. The set was very Waiting for Godot, as I heard an audience member quip, and the sole upright staff at the back of the stage did evoke the lonely tree in Becketts play. The stage was stripped back to expose its lighting and mechanics. A tree stump was placed on the floor, along with a few assorted poles of unfinished timber, resting on the floor and against the walls, and small bits of wood strewn around. The set was elemental, natural, spare, and lightly poetic, befitting the style of the story.

The white narrator (among a cast of people of color) tells a story, apparently based on Brooks own experience in Afghanistan, of discovering a man condemned to sit perpetually outside a prison. In Brook and Estiennes imagining, the man killed his father when the father discovered that his son and daughter were committing incest. The son accepts the punishment dictated by his uncle as a village elder. In fact, the son is so committed to his remorse that he resists his sisters call to give up his punitive vigil and even remains at the site after the prison is destroyed.

Making American Labor Visible Again "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Chandra McCormick, Men Going to Work in the Fields of Angola (2004): After picking up their tools for work these men can walk miles to a work destination under watch by a guard on horseback with a rifle (image courtesy the artist)

NEW ORLEANS In 1982, Henry James Jr. was arrested for a rape he did not commit and sentenced to life in prison without parole in Americas most brutalizing prison the Louisiana State Penitentiary, better known as Angola, a name passed down from its days as a slave-labor plantation. DNA evidence exonerated James and he was released in 2011, having served nearly 30 years, for nothing.

I spoke with Mr. James at the Contemporary Arts Center here at the opening of Labor Studies, a gathering of 102 photographic portraits including photographs taken in Angola by the artists Keith Calhoun and Chandra McCormick. As he told me his story, I had expected to hear moral outrage. But his self-possession and clarity as he related the ordeal only threw into starker relief the barbarism of Louisiana justice.

And Jamess story exemplifies the larger American crisis represented by Angola. McCormick and Calhouns photography attests that, though slavery was officially outlawed in 1865, its de facto continuation remains a repulsive American secret.

The couples group portraits show Angola prisoners transported to work fields as if they were merely equipment, piled together in hitched carts, or marching in the hot sun with hoes or mattocks as white guards on horseback keep a rifle at the ready. Elsewhere, inmates are employed as rodeo performers to entertain a largely local white audience, a grotesque tradition that dates back decades here.

Such obscene violations of basic human dignity stand out most viscerally in this wide-ranging exhibition. Calhouns candid portraits taken inside Angolas walls show men crammed into cells that seem no larger than the average public urinal, or forced to live in sprawling dormitories that resemble refugee camps, gruesome compounds that, I was told, have become even more overcrowded in recent years.

But as Labor Studies also demonstrates, the couples wide-ranging community of subjects exte...

Dutch banks customers unknowingly profit from palm oil companies "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Dutch banks ABN AMRO, ING and Rabobank are failing to inform their customers that investment funds they offer include shares in palm oil companies damaging the environment in Indonesia, according to a new report by Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands). Some of these funds have been labeled as sustainable, despite having shares in companies with a track record of misconduct, according to the report, titled Investment Funds: The untold story about the link between Dutch banks and industrial palm oil companies. The report examines the links between the three Dutch banks and a selection of mostly Indonesian palm oil companies and conglomerates. Although not all of the 81 selected palm oil companies have similar social and environmentally abusive practices, the researchers write, the industrial palm oil industry as a whole remains rife with controversy and human rights violations in the production chain. These problems, such as deforestation, environmental degradation, pollution and the exploitation of workers, were described in another report published recently by Friends of the Earth Netherlands, titled Draw The Line: A black book about the shady investments of Dutch Banks into palm oil. Palm oil can be found in an endless array of supermarket products, including shampoo, soap, peanut butter, chocolate spread, milk powder, pizza and chips. Pungkat in Sumatra is an example of a village that suffers from the effects of the palm oil industry, activists say. Before, the villagers could drink water and eat fish from the river, says Devi Indriani, an advocacy and campaign

Hoarding and Spending at Art Basel Miami Beach "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Rirkrit Tiravanija, untitled 2018 (all hope abandon) (2018), Beyeler Foundation (all photos by the author for Hyperallergic)

MIAMI BEACH The only time I attended Art Basel Miami Beach before this year was in 2015. This is what I wrote then:

The sameness affecting acres of ABMB booths full of derivative works siphoning off the stale fumes of Pop, Conceptualism, Neo-Conceptualism, Neo-Expressionism and even Abstract Expressionism may reassure clients that what they are buying possesses a properly vetted lineage, but in the end much of it remains formally tedious.

I could write the same thing now. If the presentation and much of the art remained unchanged, everything else was like night and day. In 2015, Miami Beach was cold, rainy, and, thanks to an out-of-commission causeway, choked with traffic. This year the weather was warm and sunny, and the city was reasonably navigable.

But darkness was settling everywhere. That the fair coincided with Robert Muellers sentencing memoranda for Michael Cohen and Paul Manafort was one thing, with the specter of Trump and his co-conspirators plotting authoritarian moves to save their skins. That it also took place during the Whitney Museums Safariland controversy really hit home: if you need to convince yourself that the art world isnt entirely in moneys thrall, youd want to be anywhere but here.

Hospitals not overcrowded they are just popular "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ministers were quick to clarify that the Christmas queues for hospital admission, were caused by the draw of resort-like facilities, the mortuarys ever-popular Santas grotto and the fact that rickets is still in vogue. Branding buildings as overcrowded failed to take into account that facilities are smaller now, while patients are noticeably fatter.

If anything, the jammed waiting rooms were a tribute to the NHS fashionable vibe and are a great way to preserve body heat. From now on the funding gap will be referred to as a fiscal hiatus and the nursing shortage will simply be called vertically-challenged.

A Health official explained: Doctors say that over-crowding is now in the red zone, but I say were just getting into the fun zone. Elbow-to-elbow, fit to bust this is more like Glastonbury but with more dementia and slightly less chlamydia.

This new-found popularity does come at a cost, with many patients having to book their beds in advance of getting ill. Said one prospective customer, in a tent outside their local A&E ward: Im planning to have diaphragmatic hernia sometime in 2021, so it made sense to start camping now. And if I get pneumonia in the process, well Im in the right place arent I?

The Meaningfulness of Anxiety "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

According to one of the most reputable surveys of its kind, the National Comorbidity Study Replication (NCS-R), almost one in five Americans has met the criteria for an anxiety disorder over the past year, and an estimated one in three people will experience an anxiety disorder in their lives. Bearing in mind that in 1980, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) estimated lifetime prevalence rates of anxiety disorders in the 2 to 4% range, it is safe to say that the diagnosing of anxiety disorders has spiked in recent decades. On college campuses, anxiety has even surpassed depression as the central mental health issue identified by students. Several years ago a large Pennsylvania State University study revealed that more than half of students seeking services through campus health clinics named anxiety as a significant concern. Is it possible that rising rates of anxiety disorders speak to a widespread lack of appreciation for expectable levels of anxiety that are part of human variation, or a pathologizing of innate and normal anxious traits?

Moreover, in the mental health field have we moved too far away from presupposing that anxiety signifies repressed emotions in need of acknowledgement and fuller expression, as well as ignored needs for greater meaning, purpose, and personal fulfillment, instead favoring a medical model approach that simply categorizes anxiety as a symptom of a disorder, which drives the diagnostic numbers upwards?

Homo sapiens is an anxious species, for good reason. We are wired to be better safe than sorryto be biologically primed to expect danger where it probably doesnt exist so as to preemptively act protectively on those more rare occasions where danger does exist. Many common phobias and obsessions probably would have had prehistoric survival value, but in our modern technological society are more of a nuisance. Fears of snakes, spiders, insects, germs, strangers, heights, unfamiliar foods, and dark enclosed spaces once kept more humans alive to pass on their genes. Fear of flying affects anywhere between six and twenty-five percent of people. Its understandable that so many people would dread stepping on an airplane given that the experience taps several core perennial human anxieties: being situated at an extreme height where falling would result in certain death, and entrapment in an enclosed space where movement is restricted and escape impossible.

To call fear of flying aviophobia and categorize it as the product of a disordered brain, or an irrational mind (given how safe flying actually is), devalues....

Federal Judge Strikes Down Obamacare, 2479 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Trade Genius Academy. It pays for itself. See their Black Friday Specials at: https://www.TradeGeniusAcademy.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Federal Judge Strikes Down Obamacare, 2479 Synopsis: Good evening. A federal judge in Texas has ruled that ObamaCare aka the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional just one day before the deadline to sign up for coverage for the coming year. The judge ruled that the individual mandate is what is unconstitutional forcing people to buy an insurance product, even if they dont want to bet against their health in any way. This argument was offered as a reason not to pass the bill in the first place, but Obama steam-roller tended to ignore such niceities as the U.S. Constitution back in them there days. Writing in his opinion, Judge Reed OConnor, an appointee of President George W. Bush, observed that the U.S. Constitution does not allow the mandate to stand. Back in 2012, the Supremes upheld the mandate claiming that it was part of Congresss power to tax. But, last year, Congress removed the fine for failing to comply with that tax, and without the mandate, the program could not pay for itself. Judge OConnor ruled that since the mandate is an essential part of the ACA, the entire law is unconstitutional SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: - Noble Gold - Better grab some rolls of these beautiful Morgan Silver Dollars before they are gone.

Yesterday he was on Laura Ingrahams radio show getting us straight and keeping the big picture in perspective. DiGenova explains in simple terms whats going on with the daily drivel from the MSM, then, towards the end of this interview he makes some startling and encouraging predictions. It seems that the Dems are now trying to focus Americas attention on the payoffs to two women who were trying to extort money from him before the election. The problem for the desperate Dems is this is not a crime in itself. Even the head of the Federal Elections Commission made an on camera comment last week that this is not a crime. But thats not enough to stop the desperate Dems. Why? Because they are so desperate. This is literally the best they can come up with after two years of a Russia Collusion investigation.

However, Pelosi has been calling for a (quote) Congress of transparency. Transparency unless its Pelosi who has to allow the nation see the way she operates. Pelosi didnt want the public to be able to see that [debate], said Faulkner on live Fox News air. Because why? Because shes in it? Because she doesnt want us to see them going back and forth? said Faulkner about the Trump Schumer Pelosi meeting. Well, today, President Trump invited Faulkner into the White House to do a taped interview one-on-one with the President.

Borrowing From Big Tobaccos Playbook, Johnson & Johnson Knew About Asbestos in Baby Powder for Decades: Reuters "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One attorney said 1970s memos that have surfaced due to recent lawsuits are on par with key docs uncovered in the tobacco litigation.

For decades, Reuters noted, J&J has promoted its iconic Baby Powder as a safe, gentle product for babies and adults alike. (Photo: Reuters)

Editors note: This article was written by Jessica Corbett.

A Reuters investigation published Friday charges that Johnson & Johnson, a multi-billion dollar company known for its healthcare products, knew for decades that its iconic talcum baby powder was sometimes tainted with carcinogenic asbestos, but concealed the information from regulators and the public.

Asbestos, the name given to six minerals that occur naturally in the environment as bundles of fibers, has been used in North Americas automotive, construction, and shipbuilding industries since the late 1800s, according to the National Cancer Institute. The World Health Organization (WHO) warns that all types of asbestos cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, cancer of the larynx and ovary, and asbestosis (fibrosis of the lungs).

Actor Lou Ferrigno Injured by Pneumonia Vaccine "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

HulkNote: While most media is using "HULK HURT!" headlines to report on actor Lou Ferrigno's hospitalization as a result of a pneumonia vaccine injury, I decided to go with a straight forward headline, no mention of his most famous role. Why? Because vaccine injury is a real phenomenon that strikes and strikes down real people. Like the man, Lou Ferrigno, who happened to play The Hulk 30 years ago. Or my daughter Mia, who turns 24 years old today. When a child is injured, the media calls us parents morons looking to blame someone, something, anything. I am glad to see the reporting on this injury.

While fluid in the bicep is probably not life threatening, any American hospitalization costs significant time and money. And what better place to catch a disease, maybe even pneumonia.  Makes me see.... green.  (Yeah, I had to go there. ;) )

Even the Hulk isn't invincible.

"The Incredible Hulk" star Lou Ferrigno was hospitalized this week after he claimed a pneumonia vaccine was administered to him improperly.

One dead, two pregnant, five sacked in best ever office Christmas party "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

stationery cupboard fuller than everEmployees at an office supply firm in Leatherhead were celebrating today after their annual Christmas party topped their previous record for fatalities, colleague impregnation and on-the-spot dismissals.

Theres always a certain pressure to make each years Christmas do better than the last, said Emma Kirkwood, junior sales assistant at Deskatronic and this years party organiser. But in the end it was a triumph. All we could manage last year was a paper-weight induced head injury and two temps having their contracts ended for arson. Janice from reception still isnt even clear whether her September baby was conceived in-house at our party or outsourced to our suppliers Christmas bash the week after.

The party started with drinks in the office at lunchtime, but quickly moved on to the accounts departments annual swivel-chair race. We call it the Tour de Finance, said accounts manager Harry Driver. The mountain stages on the stairwell are particularly gruelling. The winner gets to wear the coveted Yellow Jersey Boxers, but those who manage the descent unscathed usually find their underwear has turned that colour anyway.

Later in the afternoon the five-man sales team was summarily dismissed after listing all the office chairs, desks and IT equipment on eBay in a bid to hit their December sales targets. Tragedy then followed when Alan Rogers, 48-year-old logistics manager, was electrocuted while sitting on the photocopier with his trousers round his ankles after spilling his beer on the Xerox. It was a tragic and hilarious accident, said managing director, Keith Shah, wiping the tears from his eyes. But at least we have one hundred A3 copies of Alans arse to remember him by. Its what he would have wanted.

Deskatronic attributes its successful Christmas party to a culture of continuous improvement and never settling for second best. When our competitors started reporting serious injuries, sexual assaults and increased staff turnover in December, we knew we had to up our game, said Shah. Im really proud of what the teams achieved.

The celebrations were completed when an ambulance crew came to deal with Alans body. Thinking they were strip-a-grams, Tamsin and Shreeti undressed the paramedics and took them on a tour of the stationery cupboard. Something to do with hole-punching, I think, added Shah. Anyway, theyve both said they wont be around for next years bash and have asked for Mothercare vouc.........

Want to Feel Unique? Believe in the Reptile People. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

lizard people

Editors note: This article was written by Roland Imhoff, professor of social and legal psychology at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.

he internet is full of wild-eyed insinuation. Seemingly accidental events are not actually accidental. A few powerful people have hatched plots to bring about certain outcomes, usually with the goal of benefiting the shadowy string-pullers. As Karl Popper noted in Conjectures and Refutations(1963), some people tend to attribute anything they dislike to the intentional design of a few influential others. While conspiracy theories have long existed, the internet has accelerated their circulation (like the circulation of all information). Who believes in conspiracies, and what might these people have in common?

There are, of course, differences in the plausibility of any one conspiracy theory. In a 2013 poll, every second United States citizen questioned seemed convinced that there was some larger conspiracy at work in the assassination of the president John F Kennedy in 1963, while only 4 per cent endorsed the notion that shape-shifting reptilian people control our world by taking on human form and gaining power. (Still a somewhat unnerving 12 million people.)

Despite these differences, one of the most robust findings in the research on conspiracy theories is that there is a commonality to conspiracy theorists, even if the theories themselves are different. For instance, people who believe in the shape-shifting reptilian are much more likely also to doubt that Lee Harvey Oswald acted as a lone wolf. Indeed, those who believe that Osama bin Laden was dead before the Navy Seals shot him are also more likely to consider it plausible that bin Laden is still alive. This has led many researchers to conclude that the agreement with specific conspiracy theories is not so much dependent on the specific topic, but is rather the manifestation of a more general worldview. The conspiracist ideation, monological belief system or conspiracy mentality can be thought of as the general extent to which people see the world as governed by hidden, sinister forces.

Most blame the conspiracy mentality on a sense of profound lack of control in their lives, whether due to random...

The Third Thumb: Prosthetics To Extend and Enhance Your Natural Ability "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Third Thumb by Danielle Clode

The value of the Third Thumb is to create a catalyst for society to consider human extension, framed in an approachable, accessible design. It is a tool, an experience, and a form of self-expression. When we start to extend our abilities, and when we reframe prosthetics as extensions, then we start to shift the focus from fixing disability, to extending ability. -Danielle Clode

Royal College of Art (RCA) graduate student Danielle Clode envisions a future in which we harness technology to augment our humanity. She is intrigued by the idea that people could become even more powerful through augmentation. This interest of hers lead to the creation of a controllable Third Thumb that enables the wearer to extend their natural abilities. She designed the Third Thumb to push us to consider what optimal human functioning really is.

Another Day Another New Low For Crypto Markets "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Crypto markets dump to new lows again; Bitcoin Cash, SV, nearly dead, Litecoin surviving.

As predicted yesterday crypto markets have dumped to a new low during intraday trading. A minor recovery during the week could not be sustained and total market capitalization has fallen to a new low of $101 billion a few hours ago.

Bitcoin led the drop when it fell through support at $3,400 a couple of days ago and kept going back down to a new 2018 low of $3,205 at 22.00 UTC. A quick bounce took it back to $3,250 but Bitcoin is still at its cheapest price for 16 months.

Needless to say Ethereum has also been smashed dropping to a low of $83 before recovering back to a very weak $85. The rest of the altcoins are all in pain during Asian trading today. The top ten is a sea of red and as usual the Bitcoin Cash twins are getting hammered with BCH dumping 10% and BSV 12%. EOS and Litecoin have stopped falling at the time of writing but the rest are down a couple of percent.

The top twenty is all in the red also with Monero and Nem getting hit the hardest dropping around 7% each. The rest are down 2-4 percent since yesterday and are at rock bottom prices for the year.

There are only two altcoins getting a fomo pump at the moment, Waves and Revain are up about 10% right now. Syscoin has entered the top one hundred with a big pump today but it is likely to do the exact opposite tomorrow. DEX is getting smashed at the other end of the table with a 40% dump on the day. MobileGo is also having a bad day with a 20% drop.

Total market capitalization is down another 3% on the day and is currently around $103 billion. A new 2018 low was made a few hours ago of $101 billion and as things stand market cap will be double digits very soon. Over 9% has been lost from crypto markets since last weekend and almost 45% since the same time last month. The selloff does not seem to be abating and things are not even stabilizing at a bottom down is the only direction for cryptocurrencies at the moment.

Four Injured in Explosion & Fire at MarkWest Gas Processing Complex in Southwest PA "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

MarkWest isolates Ethane, Propane and Butanes from Wet Natural Gas

Four injured, one critically, in explosion at MarkWest processing plant in Washington County, PA

From an Article by Pittsburgh Post Gazette, December 14, 2018

Four people remain hospitalized, one in critical condition, after an explosion at a Washington County gas processing plant Thursday night.

The explosion involved two storage tanks at the MarkWest Energy facility at 800 Western Ave., in Houston, Pa. It was reported at 6:03 p.m. and the fire brought under control within an hour, according to county emergency officials.

All of the injured workers suffered burns. Two were flown to UPMC Mercy, including one person who was in critical condition Friday morning, officials said. The other two injured were flown to West Penn Hospital.

Nine fire departments and three EMS crews responded, as did the countys hazmat unit. No homes were evacuated.

A MarkWest official said in a statement that the explosion occurred near two temporary tanks that were on-site for routine maintenance, resulting in a fire.

Although the processing plant was not involved in the incident, it was shut down as a precaution and at this time there are no off-site impacts, the statement read. Agency notifications have been made and an investigation into the cause of this event is underway. Our prayers are with our injured colleagues and their families.

Risk Assessment on Mariner East 2 Pipeline Appears Inadequate "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mariner East 2 Pipeline to transport NGL to Delaware River for export

Delaware County (Pennsylvania) sets public hearing on pipeline risk study

Article from the Delaware County Daily Times, Upper Darby Township, PA, December 14, 2018

MEDIA COURTHOUSE Delaware County Council will hold a public presentation of the Pipeline Risk Assessment on December 17 at 6 p.m. in the County Council Public Meeting Room, located on the first floor of the Government Center, 201 W. Front St., Media.

Council contracted with G2 Integrated Solutions, based in Texas to conduct an independent study of the risks associated with the operation of the Mariner East 2 pipeline and the converted Adelphia pipeline. Analysts from G2 will present the findings of the study to Council and to the public on December 17, 2018.

In response to public discussions, this risk assessment was undertaken to estimate the level of individual risk to Delaware County residents from either the Mariner East 2 pipeline or the converted Adelphia pipeline and then compare to other common sources of risk experienced by the general population. The Mariner East 2 pipeline and Adelphia pipeline quantitative risk assessments were executed in a systematic process in which potential accident events were identified, the associated consequence and likelihood of such events were determined, and the risk measures estimated.

The full results of the risk assessment study can be found here.

Some pipeline opponents have criticized the findings of the study, which downplayed the danger of a serious incident or risk of injury from the pipeline as being about the same as being involved in a car accident, house fire or fall down the steps.

Mariner East 2 foes have said that actually the study points to just the opposite, that the blast zone created by a serious problem with the pipeline actually is greater than thought, about 1.3 miles, and that while the chance of an incident are smaller, any problem likely would be catastrophic.

Nigel Farage Rule Britannia Opening Night "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

With details due to be confirmed in January about the style and make-up of Nigel Farages new political party, a short series of warm-up rallies sees him getting supporters in the mood for the rebirth of his life in frontline politics.

Consequently opening night in Carshalton saw expectations running at fever pitch with a pre-Christmas party-like atmosphere of ecstatic jubilation as hundreds of bigots, disenfranchised Tories and Ukippers, xenophobes and elderly Daily Mail readers took their seats in rapt anticipation of the first performance on whats being dubbed by many commentators his Rule Britannia Comeback Tour.

The stage set was simple and sparse as red white and blue laser beams swept the room with two statues of Britannia flanking the podium and a large plasma screen showing clips of Nigels June 2016 early morning Independence Day speech.

The lights then dimmed and to tumultuous applause as the PA belting out The Dam Busters March, he was carried on-stage in a sedan chair borne aloft by four road crew wearing bowler hats with Union Jack t-shirts and shorts. And right form the get-go he had the crowd in the palm of his hand.

He opened with a blistering attack on immigrants delighting his audience with an extended improvised passage about dole-scrounging and fraudulent benefit claims that very nearly brought the house down. At one point a blue-rinsed septuagenarian supporter got past security and draped her knickers over Nigels head before planting a kiss on his cheek.

After the interval it was vintage Farage all the way as he made an impassioned plea for Mrs May to be ousted as soon as possible with calls for an immediate second no confidence motion, before moving onto what the crowd had been waiting for and he did not disappoint. It was obvious to all that his powers have not been diminished and it was as if hed never been away when he closed the last forty minutes of the set with a tour de force all guns blazing full-frontal attack on The EU.

Of course he was called back for the obligatory encore; a tough-talking piece slating Remainers wherein he confirmed that he is indeed to go back into frontline politics with his new party and personally see that the resounding 52% majority who voted Brexit will not be betrayed. And on that note, with the crowd going crazy, there were two massive thunder flashes and a confetti cannon blast and he was gone.

As they left the venue the audience, seemed to this reviewer, to be frenzied, fired-up and on the lookout for a late night roast beef dinner with all the trimmings.

Study Finds That 98.7% of All Successful Parries Performed Accidentally "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

NEW HAVEN, Conn. A Yale University study confirmed what gamers have known to be true for years: nearly every successfully executed parry in any video game is performed accidentally.

Parries are typically so difficult and come with such little payoff that they really arent worth the effort, states the studys abstract. The parry tends to be the most-repeated part of a games tutorial, and few players attempt them in the real game unless its absolutely required.

Professor Joan Winston, author of the study, tracked 350 gamers over the course of two years to confirm her suspicions.

Game developers shoehorn this bullshit move into almost every game just to frustrate gamers and distract them from the joy of beating the shit out of all on-screen enemies, Professor Winston explained. Whether it is input lag, latency issues or just general fuckery, most gamers will never learn to parry on a routine basis and instead will settle for performing a block or decide to put on their big boy pants and relentlessly attack their opponent.

Maria Boggs, software engineer at Motion Twin, defended the inclusion of the parry in the companys popular roguelike game Dead Cells.

It adds so many extra minutes of game time by forcing players to discover the worthlessness of Dead Cells shields on their own, Boggs argues. How can you appreciate the power and fun of the melee weapons and traps in the our game if you havent experienced the utter boredom of trying to parry?

Professor Winstons study also revealed another interesting fact: the vast majority of successful parries are only executed by a tiny handful of players.

I became the worlds best Street Fighter V player by only ever using Cammys parry. People fucking hate me, said SFV champion Eugene Lisowski. Apparently, I account for 15% of all successful parries in human history.

At press time, a comprehensive study by a team of researchers at Harvard University found that 100% of the Yale researches are absolute trash at fighting games.

Is Macular Degeneration Preventable? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

An intriguing presentation about the possible link between age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and processed food consumption literally caught my eye. As presented in the featured video, ophthalmologist Dr. Chris Knobbe, founder and president of the Cure AMD Foundation, suggests the common assertion macular degeneration is caused by aging or genetics is a mistaken one.

Given the reality macular degeneration has gone from being an extremely rare disorder more than a century ago to one that is found at increasingly alarming rates in developed countries around the world, Knobbe points to higher intakes of processed food not aging or genetics as the root cause.

He presented his research findings at the 2018 Ancestral Health Symposium, held in Bozeman, Montana. Knobbe asserts the same people known to consume the most processed food not only develop AMD, but are also more likely to be affected by cancer, heart disease, hypertension, obesity, Type 2 diabetes and stroke.

What Is Macular Degeneration?

According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO),1 macular degeneration results when the part of your retina called the macula becomes damaged, causing you to lose your central vision. If you have AMD, you cannot see fine details whether close or far, but your peripheral (side) vision remains normal.

The BrightFocus Foundation defines AMD as "an irreversible destruction of the macula, which leads to loss of the sharp, fine-detail, 'straight ahead' vision required for activities like reading, driving, recognizing faces and seeing the world in color."2

Knobbe notes your macula measures 6 millimeters (mm), or about one-fourth of an inch, across and accounts for the central 10 degrees of your vision. "Arguably, this is the most important 6 mm in our bodies," he asserts.3 About macular degeneration, the AAO says:4

  • It is a leading cause of vision loss in people 50 years and older
  • About 80 percent of people with AMD have the dry form, which is characterized by the thinning of parts of your macula, as well as the growth of tiny clumps of protein called drusen, which causes you to slowly lose your central vision
  • Wet AMD is a less common but more serious form of vision loss because it causes new, abnormal blood vessels to grow under your retina, which may leak blood or other fluids that cause scarring of your macula

Restaurants Banning Cellphones During Meals "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As presented in the featured video, restaurants in the U.S., as well as a major chain in the U.K., are restricting cellphone use as a means of promoting real-life social connections over the use of social media while dining out. Sadly, its becoming increasingly rare to see couples, families and friends interacting with each other over meals inside or outside the home.

Restaurants, which used to be a place of connection and socialization, are increasingly becoming hangouts in which patrons spend more time looking down at screens than up at and into the eyes of the people around them. 

A poll commissioned by the U.K. restaurant chain Frankie & Bennys suggests 70 percent of kids wish their parents would put down their phones and spend more time talking to them, whereas 67 percent of parents admitted their phone has come between them and their family.1

In case you need an incentive to share meals with your partner and children, you may be interested to know that engaging in regular family mealtimes has been shown to positively influence the physical and social development of children.

From New York to Houston, US Restaurants Are Saying No to Cellphones

According to CBS News, U.S. restaurant owners are becoming increasingly intolerant of Americas love affair with portable technology.2 The overuse of cellphones, laptops and tablets in public spaces is becoming problematic. Customers who sit together but dont look at each other are detracting from what used to be a more interactive, social atmosphere.

Now, instead of making real-life social connections, many restaurant patrons are turning to social media. Instead of looking into the eyes of the person or people sitting across the table from them, diners are staring at their screens and checking news and social media feeds.

"You walk by a table and there's somebody playing a video game. Or people made a note they're celebrating their anniversary and you barely see them speak to each other over the course of the two-and-a-half-hour dinner," said John Winterman from restaurant Batard in New York Citys Tribeca neighborhood.3

Rather than check out Facebook or Twitter, people should take the opportunity to focus on and enjoy each others company, as well as their food, asserts Winterman. His comments are based on observation only. Unlike some restaurants i...

Help Ease Anxiety With Lemon Balm Tea "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Lemon balm, which is not to be confused with lemon trees or lemon fruit, has been used as far back as the Middle Ages, and perhaps earlier.1 Lemon balm has been shown to be helpful in combating stress and anxiety,2 boosting appetite and alleviating the pain and discomfort caused by indigestion.3 This herb was also steeped in wine to lift spirits and it was employed in treating wounds and venomous insect bites and stings.

Lemon balm is a common sight in many herb gardens because it attracts bees. Beyond its medicinal uses, lemon balm can also be used for cosmetics and furniture polish manufacturing. Beyond that, fresh lemon balm leaves can be steeped and dried to make lemon balm tea, an herbal beverage that can soothe your senses. Here's all you need to know about lemon balm tea.

What Is Lemon Balm Tea?

Leaves of the lemon balm plant (Melissa officinalis), a member of the mint family, make a delicious herbal tea. Although lemon balm is native to Europe, it's now widely available and can be grown in home gardens, too. The plant can grow up to 2 feet high, or even higher if it's not well-maintained. During spring and summer, small, light-yellow flower clusters appe...

ON BECOMING FREE WHAT ARE WE REALLY FREEING OURSELVES FOR? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Gary Z. McGee,

I must create a system or be enslaved by another Mans. ~William Blake

Becoming free is creating your own virtuous system despite being outflanked by unvirtuous systems controlled by unvirtuous men. It is cultivating a healthy way of living despite the unhealthy ways of unhealthy men. Its becoming so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion (Albert Camus). Then its building a new model that makes the existing model obsolete (Buckminster Fuller).

But first, we must ask ourselves what we are freeing ourselves for before asking ourselves what we are freeing ourselves from. The answer to that question, what are we freeing ourselves for, will be the foundation of our freedom, the cornerstone of our virtue, the building blocks of a healthier way of being human in the world.

Understand: we must be critical and highly skeptical of any answer that should arise from asking this most vital of questions. For if our answer is deemed invalid/unhealthy by the dictates of universal law (whats healthy and whats not), then it should be discarded as invalid/unhealthy for any humans who are attempting to be virtuous and healthy. Also, every answer should remain flexible and adaptable lest it become stagnant, rigid, dogmatic, tyrannical, or stuck in its ways.

A virtuous system follows the Golden Rule and the Nonaggression Principle:

Beware of the good and the just! They like to crucify those who invent their own virtue for themselves. ~Nietzsche

As human beings there is no way around the fact that we are social creatures. We need each other to survive in a hostile (entropic) universe. Therefore, the golden rule is paramount.

It is imperative that whatever we are freeing ourselves for does not overreach or impede the health and welfare of others. A truly...

7-Year-old Indigenous Girl Dies at US Border While in Federal Custody "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published December 15, 2018 

Jakelin Caal Maquin died while in custody of U.S. Customs and Boder Protection

LORDSBURG, N.M.   A seven-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock at the U.S. southern border near Lordsburg, New Mexico while in custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on December 7, 2018.

According to CBP records, the girl, Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquina, and her father were part of a group of 163 people who turned themselves in about 10 p.m. on December 6, 2018. About eight and half hours later, Jakelin began having seizures at 6:25 a.m.  Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees. She reportedly had not eaten or drank water for several days. She was flown to a hospital in El Paso, Texas.  She died later that day.

It is now known why she was not given wateror what transpiredduring the eight hours prior to her seizures.

Her family were from the region of Alta Verapaz and their first language was Quechua, which is an indigenous language of Indian tribes of Central America and South America.

Jakelin death came three days after her seventh birthday.

Her death brought the ire of Congresswoman Norma Torres (D-Calif.), who was born in Guatemala, immigrated to the U.S. as a child, and is currently the only member of Congress of Central American descent.

Torres released this statement:

I am appalled by the Trump administrations response to the death of Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquina, a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl in Department of Homeland Security (DHS) custody.

Lets be clear: when a U.S. government agency has a 7-year-old girl in its custody, that girls health and safety is the responsibility of that agency. But DHS has issued an official statement that tries to wash its hands of all culpability. Thats unacceptable: they must come clean with the facts.

I am even more disgusted that Secretary Kristjen Nielsen is already blaming this death on Jakelin and her father. She should know better than to blame the victim. Making the decision to migrate is not easy, and migrants know that the journey is risky. They are coming here because they have no other choice: their governments have failed to protect them from gangs or allo.........

Special Needs Cat Gets The Most Magical Cat Tree "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Wolfie was rescued after living behind a building with his siblings on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles. From the moment he arrived in his new home, there was always something different about Wolfie. He was a very sickly kitten, and his mom eventually discovered that he was born with a severely kinked esophagus. Once he started eating an all-liquid diet, he became much healthier, and has now transformed into the funniest, sweetest cat. 

Oh my gosh, he's hilarious, Jacqueline Santiago, Wolfies mom, told The Dodo. He's spunky and makes the silliest faces. He's a total mamas boy. He loves all cats and wants to play with everyone.

Despite his special needs, Wolfie doesnt seem to have any idea hes any different, and loves playing with all his cat siblings whenever he gets the chance. Between Santiago and her roommate, there are five cats living in their house. They all get along great and love to hang out together, and so the two friends decided they wanted to get them something they could all enjoy together a gigantic cat tree

My roommate and I had been researching cat trees because we found our other trees were a bit too small for her cat plus our four other kitties, Santiago said. We wanted something that could accommodate everyone's needs.

Credit: Jacqueline Santiago

They decided to order a custom cat tree from Hollywood Kitty Company, and began working with the designer to come up with something that would work for each one of their furry family members. 

The decaying tree stump on the right was made for my cat Piper who needed her own private space, Santiago said. The larger platforms accommodate our bigger cats like Leonidas and Noelle. Our kitty Khaleesi loves all the branches and there is a bed right in the middle just for her. Wolfie is a huge fan of being on top, as is Leo, so we made sure there was several tall platforms so there would be no fighting over the top spot. As we disc...

4 Common Causes of Joint Pains That You Should Know "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Published December 15, 2018

So, you have been having a lot of pain in your shoulders and you think it is because of the sleeping posture that has caused this pain. Well, think again. Sleeping postures do not lead to chronic pain. This might be an indication that you have some health issues that is causing the joint pain. It is not just the shoulders that we are talking about. Joint pains can happen to any part of the body, and if the pain becomes unbearable, then there can be several reasons behind it. Here are some of the most common causes of joint pains that are often diagnosed by orthopedic doctors:

1. Arthritis probably, the first cause that will automatically come to your mind when you have joint pains is arthritis. In fact, most of the cases where people have joint pains result in this medical condition. So, you never know if you have it unless you get properly diagnosed. Your doctor will be able to tell you what type of arthritis it is. Generally, people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Treatments like physiotherapy, acupuncture, taking joint pain supplements like Artroser, and numerous others can help to deal with arthritis.

2. Chronic fatigue syndrome have you ever noticed that your entire body starts to ache when you work for long hours or for days at a stretch? This is known as chronic fatigue syndrome which is a certain disorder that takes place when your body is too tired. More often than not, it is the joints that reflect the pain. Sometimes, the pain is so much that you cant even get up from the bed. So, check with a doctor when such a thing happens. Massages and a few physiotherapy sessions can deal with such joint pains.

3. Bursitis this is a condition when there are fluid-filled sacs in your bone joints. Bursitis can turn out to be very painful if it is not detected timely. When there is an inflammation of the bursae in your body, it tends to secrete a fluid that gets filled in sacs. These will slowly move towards the joints in the body and soon there will be a certain discomfort. This discomfort will quickly turn out to be painful. It will be wise to visit a doctor because bursitis often does not get detected unless tested.

4. Gout another terrible condition that needs immediate cure is gout. It is caused when the content of uric acid in the body increases to a great extent. The first signs

Cancers Effect on the Native American "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Publisehed December 15, 2018

Anyone who has had cancer affect either themselves or a loved one, knows how much of a toll it can take on a family unit. This impact is compounded when you entire community seems to be disproportionately affected as well. Cancer is certainly an illness that affects  many different types of people, but Native Americans are historically  disproportionately affected by this group of diseases. Many factors contribute to this groups many diagnoses, from genetics to outside forces like hazardous material dumping. Despite these terrible circumstances, Native Americans are working to educate their communities about the dangers of cancer and the importance of self-care and proper screenings.

The Facts

According to the National American Indian Cancer Foundation, cancer in Native Americans is the number one cause of death in women and the number two cause of death for men. Native American women are most commonly diagnosed with breast, lung and colorectal cancers respectively, and men of this population are most commonly diagnosed with prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers.

Native Americans have the lowest survival rates for nearly all types of cancer of any subpopulation. This is mainly due to delayed detection, resulting in diagnosis and treatment in later stages of the illness, which reduces a patients life expectancy. Also, life choices and genetic family history of cancer play a role.

Lack of Resources

While lifestyle health issues like smoking, diet, and even genes can lead to a persons cancer diagnosis, there are other contributing factors that cant be as easily mitigated. Native Americans who live on reservations often live in rural areas without access to oncology services. The primary health care on reservations is provided by either a tribally operated program or the Indian Health Service. These resources are usually underfunded, which means that the services tend to be subpar, leaving the Native American people with limited availability of preventative programs, cancer screenings,...

Raccoon Looking For A Snack Gets His Head Stuck In A Can "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This raccoon found a great snack but then, everything went downhill.

Last month in North Fort Myers, Florida, a curious raccoon thought he hit the jackpot when he stumbled upon a metal can with some soup remnants still left inside. Eager to slurp up the leftovers, the raccoon put his head in and then it got stuck.

Luckily, locals found the wayward snacker and took him to Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for help.

Its a good thing Dr. Robin Bast had a can opener on hand because she was going to need it.

Credit: CROW

The veterinarian and her team carefully opened the bottom end of the can to allow the raccoon to breathe better, and then administered sedation to fully remove the remaining metal can.

As the raccoon relaxed, the team was able to quickly pull the can from around the animals head and they were glad to see that the can hadnt cut into his neck or chin.

The animals who get help in time, like this racoon, are the lucky ones.

Its not an uncommon occurrence; we get a handful of [litter] cases per month, Bast told The Dodo. Situations include bottles or cans stuck on the animals head, dryer sheets wrapped around a birds beak, plastic stuck on wings or legs, etc.

The hungry raccoon likely found the soup can while snooping through a trash can for food something that can be easily prevented by taking the right precautions, Bast said....

800-Pound Pig Found On Streets Just Wants Someone To Love Him "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Langley Animal Protection Society typically takes in cats, dogs and other similarly sized animals but when they got a call about an 800-pound animal who needed their help, they knew that no matter how big, they couldnt turn him away. 

Theodore the pig was found running through the streets of Langley, British Columbia, all alone, and no one has any idea where he came from. He was initially spotted on a very busy road, and so his rescuers knew it was important to get him to safety as quickly as possible so he wasnt injured by a passing car. It wasnt an easy feat getting an 800-pound pig to corporate, but his rescuers refused to give up, and Theodore became an official resident of the Langley Animal Protection Society.

His rescue was reasonably straightforward although he was very reluctant to get onto the horse trailer, Jayne Nelson, executive director of the Langley Animal Protection Society, told The Dodo. It took about two hours and a chocolate chip granola bar to convince him to jump in the trailer.

Once he was safe, Theodore's rescuers searched for his family, but unfortunately came up empty and so once he was neutered, they began the tricky task of trying to find a family who would be willing to take on such an enormous new family member.

Despite his size, Theodore is one of the sweetest creatures youll ever meet. He just wants constant attention and loves from the people caring for him, and would make...

Anti-Semitism and the Death of Free Speech by John Kaminski "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS IS MENTAL CASTRATION

By John Kaminski,

Despite your many years of research and your compelling evidence, you may no longer claim that the tragedy which occurred on 9/11/2001 was clearly the work of Jews Jews who own Wall Street, Jews who control the U.S. government and Jews who operate most of the mass media in the world. Why may you not say this? Because it would be anti-Semitic.

When you read the history of World War I at least as presented by Benjamin Freedman, a famous escapee from Judaism you learn that Germany had won the war until the international Jews got their promise of Palestine in writing, and then the United States intervened, right after U.S. Jews had created the Federal Reserve and the income tax as a foolproof way to fund future wars. But dont mention this to your friends as it would be anti-Semitic.

World War II was much the same scam. The Jews had locked up the Western world in a massive depression at the same time Adolf Hitler had created a successful workers paradise on the full faith and credit of the German people. Secret Jew FDR and his cabal of closet Communists baited Japan into attacking Hawaii and in four years 60 million people wound up dead because the Jews wanted to exterminate the major threat to their worldwide financial hegemony, which was Hitlers economic miracle. But dont put this in your memoirs. It would be anti-Semitic.

Immune from prosecution

Much of the food you eat today, ordinary products such as Cheerios or Quaker Oats, is tainted by Glyphosate, the dangerous ingredient in the herbicide Roundup, which was produced by the infamous company named after the Jewish Monsanto family. They started out as slave traders after the Civil War but by the time Vietnam rolled around they were peddling the deadly Agent Orange as a defoliant to be used on Southeast Asian jungles, which left thousands of American troops (and many thousands of innocent Vietnamese) stricken by leukemia, diabetes 2, Hodgkins disease, myelomas, Parkinsons, neuropathy, prostate cancer, lung cancers and various other sarcomas.

Inexplicably put in charge of Americas food supply thereafter, Monsanto then produced Glyphosate, which is applied in the field to most of the foods you eat, and entails another laundry list of diseases even longer than the last. Roundup causes the same type of oxidative stress and neural cell death observed in Alzheimers disease. But the Monsanto family shrewdly shed themselves of their notorious company a few days before losing a $289 million lawsuit to a man who successfully...

New Jersey Is First State To Ban All Animal Circuses "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In a landmark win for the animals, New Jersey has become the first U.S. state to ban the use of wild animals in circuses.

Signed into law today by Governor Phil Murphy, this historic measure recognizes both the animal welfare concerns and public safety concerns of circuses and other traveling shows that force wild animals to perform.

Credit: Facebook/Circus World

The new law protects many endangered and threatened species like elephants, tigers, lions, bears and primates from being made to perform for entertainment.

The news has been long-awaited by animal advocates across the country, who diligently stood behind lawmakers in their efforts to pass the so-called Noseys Law, which was named after a now-famous circus elephant from Alabama.

After decades of living in chains and being forced to give rides to her owners customers, Nosey was awarded a new home in 2017 at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

Her former owner, Hugo Liebel, faces animal cruelty charges for the years of neglect.

Now, thanks to Noseys precedent and New Jersey lawmakers, its possible other performing animals will go on meet the same peaceful fates at a sanctuary.

For Jan Creamer, president of Animal Defenders International and long-time advocate of Nosey, the news is a cause for celebration and a sign that more change could be on the way in other states very soon....

Extinction is Not an Option: The $1bn Push to Save Orcas in Washington "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Levi Pulkkinen / The Guardian

Governor proposes destroying dams, repairing habitats and limiting whale-watching in bid to save struggling creatures.

Five months after twin tragedies cast a spotlight on the states ailing orcas, Washington plans to spend more than $1bn to stave off extinction.

If enacted, a proposal from the governor, Jay Inslee, would knock down two dams, repair habitat and place a three-year ban on orca watching. Crucially, Inslee hopes to shore up salmon runs that feed the orca while cleaning and quieting the waters in which they live.

The deaths of two young orca this summer transfixed the nation and inspired a desperate push to save the black-and-white creatures, also called killer whales, who are treasured regional symbols. A shortage of Chinook salmon, pollution, and marine noise caused by boats which blinds their echolocation has led to diminishing numbers of orcas. Three years have passed since an orca calf born in the region has survived.

Worries of imminent extinction prompted demands for action from state leaders. Inslees answer came earlier this week as the governor, a Democrat thought to hold presidential ambitions, outlined the billion-dollar, two-year proposal.

By Rick North

Im a volunteer activist opposing fluoridation at three levels. Locally, I was deeply involved in the successful 2013 Portland and 2016 Newport campaigns. Statewide, Ive worked with state legislators to prevent a law forcing fluoridation on all Oregon cities. And nationally, I work with FAN on several projects and have been a presenter at their last two national conferences. I am the current chairperson of FANs advisory committee and also serve on the advisory board of the American Environmental Health Sciences project, Inc, FANs umbrella group for its 501-c3 status.

On EVERY campaign Ive worked, FAN has been there to back me up. In Oregon, we simply couldnt have been anywhere near as successful without FANs support up-to-date scientific advice, materials, and the inspiration to go the extra mile.

PMID:  J Integr Med. 2017 09 ;15(5):351-358. PMID: 28844211 Abstract Title:  Effectiveness of Myrtus communis in the treatment of hemorrhoids. Abstract:  Myrtus communis is an important plant in the treatment of many different diseases. The aim of this review was to determine the importance of M. communis essential oil in the treatment of hemorrhoids. For preparing this manuscript, the information was extracted from different resources. The results of clinical studies showed that M. communis essential oil (lotion or ointment) can significantly improve bleeding, permanent pain, pain during defecation, anal irritation, anal itching and anal heaviness in patients with hemorrhoids types I and II. M. communis was also effective in treating patients who did not respond to current chemical treatments (anti-hemorrhoids ointment). Further clinical studies should look into designing a suppository form of M. communis essential oil and compare its effect with the lotion and ointment forms.

PMID:  Arch Physiol Biochem. 2018 Dec ;124(5):390-396. Epub 2018 Jan 5. PMID: 29303617 Abstract Title:  Ethnobotanical, phytochemical and therapeutic effects of Myrtus communis L. berries seeds on gastrointestinal tract diseases: a review. Abstract:  Medicinal plants have always had an important place in the therapeutic arsenal of humanity and particularly in the treatment of gastrointestinal tract diseases. Myrtus communis L., known as common myrtle, is native to Southern Europe, North Africa, and Western Asia. The different parts of this plant are used as antiinflammatory, antiulcer, antidiabetic, urinary antiseptic, and to treat the respiratory and digestive systems diseases. For the first time, an exhaustive bibliographic research of the seeds of myrtle berries has been carried out. As a result, it has been found that this plant is very rich in biologically active compounds such as phospholipids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, and phenolic compounds. This has made it effective in the treatment of digestive diseases. In order to emphasize the importance of myrtle berries seeds, this review has been established by discussing its botanical, morphological, phytochemical, ethnomedicinal studies as well as its effect on digestive tract diseases.

Rescue Bear Skips Hibernating So He Can Play With This Log "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When a bear named Riku first arrived at a sanctuary last year, he had to adjust to an entirely different kind of life.

Riku had been kept chained up in a tiny shack next to a man's house in Albania. Most likely he had been kept captive since he was a small cub. By the time he was 2 years old, he was too big for his owner to handle. Day and night he was chained up, unable to feel sunlight or step on fresh grass. 

Credit: Four Paws International

People from Four Paws International arrived in May 2017 to save Riku and bring him to Dancing Bears Park Belitsa in Bulgaria, a sanctuary for bears saved from abuse. 

Credit: Four Paws International

For the first time since he was a tiny cub, Riku was able to roam freely, smell fresh air and meet other bears like him. 

It takes some time for bears who are saved from being kept in cages to adjust back to a more natural kind of life. 

One of the hardest things for rescued bears to do after being kept captive is hibernate. Not given the opportunity to build a den when in captivity means that newly rescued bears sometimes skip whole winters when they should be hibernating.

Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of myrtus communis L. solution in the treatment of dandruff and to compare it with ketoconazole.METHODS: This double-blind randomised clinical trial was conducted at Shiraz University of Medical Sciences, Shiraz, Iran, from December 2015 to August 2016, and comprised patients with dandruff aged 18-60 years visiting the dermatology out-patient clinic. The subjects were randomised into two equal groups. The treatment group received myrtus communis L. solution and a placebo shampoo, while the control group received ketoconazole shampoo and a placebo solution. The total duration of the study for each subject was one month and subjects in both groups used their respective interventions 8 times during that period. The parameters studied were pruritus, erythema, severity of scaling, and the extent of scalp involvement. All subjects underwent scalp scaling tests at the beginning, after 10 days and at the end of the 30th day. SPSS 21 was used for data analysis.RESULTS: Of the 90 individuals, there were 45(50%) in each of the two groups. However, 74(82%) subjects completed the third visit and, of them, there were 37(50%) in each group. Both groups showed significant improvement in all outcome measures (p0.05 for each outcome).CONCLUSIONS: Myrtus solution was found to be effective in the treatment of dandruff.

Reflections on being an indie hacker "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Reflections on Being an Indie Hacker

Spent a week in Wells, VT to disconnect from work and reflect on all the things!

My name is Tigran and by definition, Im probably a half-indie hacker. Why half you may ask? Because Im a full-time software engineer at Buffer but at the same time Im building an online profitable side-business called Cronhub.

If we think how one of my favorite Internet sites, Indie Hackers defines it, I think I fit into that definition but not quite.

How IndieHackers.com defines indie hacker

I generate money independently through the product Ive created but also have a primary source of income which is my employer. Im a solo founder and have been bootstrapping Cronhub for the past 8 months or so. As you see I may have the rights to call myself an indie hacker, right? If your answer is yes then lets read my story further. Also, Ive written another article if you like to read more about how I work remotely.

I wanted to be an indie hacker for multiple reasons but the biggest motivation has always been my passion for building products. In the past, Ive built other side-projects that were free. I even created a side-project when I was studying at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) called Wheelie. It became the official ride-sharing online platform for RIT students. However, Ive shut it down two years ago due losing my interest for the product as well as worrying too much about safety issues. So yes, I love side-projects because its fun and you get to learn a wide range of skills.

Another reason why I started Cronhub is financial income. I understand that money doesnt necessarily buy happiness but it can buy freedom and I think its a big deal at least for me. Not having enough money is always very stressful and making money is usually more fun.

For the past year or so Ive started to value my time a lot and decided if I ever get involved in side-projects it wont be for free. Having a full-time job and a family doesnt give you too much free time so I better justify what I spend my time on. This thinking really changed my perspective on things that I was keen to work on. This article is a reflection of that journey.

The motivation behind this article

The motivation for writing this article is primarily based on wanting to share my knowledge and experience with others who are thinking of becoming an indie hacker. When I s...

Butterfly Sanctuary Is Heaven On Earth And About To Be Bulldozed "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Sixteen years ago, people decided to set up something special near a beautiful river in Texas. 

And setting something up, in this case, meant letting things be. The people at the National Butterfly Center let the trees that were going there in the rich Rio Grande Valley keep growing. They let the wildflowers, shrubs and natural undergrowth keep blooming.

Credit: National Butterfly Center

People even helped nature along on the center's one hundred protected acres, planting native flowers to encourage a wide range of butterfly species, as well as different types of birds, to come and make their homes there. 

This land soon became a magical haven for over two hundred species of wild butterflies  as naturally as leaves come to trees.

"It is positively magical for people to walk through clouds of butterflies," Marianna Wright, director of the center, told The Dodo. "None of this is artificially constructed. We are simply planting the host and the nectar plants and they [the butterflies] just appear."

But the delicate and colorfully winged creatures that create the otherworldly atmosphere of this place and the people who are devoted to protecting them are suddenly facing a hard reality

"Its stuff I never thought I would be dealing with," Wright said.

In the summer of 2017, surveyors started to show up. Wright found surveying stakes in the land. She saw contractors had started to cut down some surrounding trees and pulling up flowers.

Adanis claims that W&J have certified Woongal are false, disrespectful and underhanded, say Traditional Owners

Adanis announcement that Woongal Environmental Services has been given a contract to monitor environmental outcomes on Wangan and Jagalingou country has drawn condemnation from the W&J Council as false, and typical of the disrespectful and underhanded way in which Adani treats Traditional Owners.

W&J Traditional Owner and lead spokesperson Adrian Burragubba said, The claim that Woongul is a Wangan and Jagalingou certified business is false. No decision of the native title party has ever been made to certify this company. This announcement is in breach of the terms of Adanis own purported ILUA.

A Wangan and Jagalingou certified business is a reference to a business accredited in accordance with the process set out in the Adani ILUA. Mr Burragubba says this process has never been followed.

We will seek legal advice on blocking this contract. We are tired of other people misrepresenting us and benefiting at our expense. Adanis announcement is an insult. Other people have been given authority over our country and our environment, while many W&J Traditonal Owners and families have been deliberately excluded from any input into cultural heritage protection and environmental management.

British Royal Family Implicated Again In A New Court Case About Pedophilia & Sex Slavery "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Never before has pedophilia and ritualistic child abuse been on the radar of so many people. Having been at Collective Evolution for nearly ten years, its truly amazing to see just how much the world has woken up to the fact that ritualistic child abuse is actually a real possibility.

The people who have been implicated in this type of activity over the years are powerful, from high ranking military people, all the way down to the several politicians around the world, and more.

One example would be the NBC news report that implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, possibly why we see crimes against children in this document from the FBI. This activity could even have permeated the three letter agencies, so to have them look into it is also worrisome.

by Kathleen Martens, APTN National News, December 15, 2018

An Indigenous camp was ordered Friday to remove a gate thats blocking a bridge in northwestern B.C. and holding up a multi-billion-dollar gas pipeline project.

Judge Marguerite Church of the B.C. Supreme Court sided with Coastal GasLink, a subsidiary of TransCanada Corp., which filed an injunction to get construction going on the $40-billion LNG Canada build.

People were crying but I feel emboldened because we are getting so much support, said Warner Naziel of the Indigenous Unistoten Camp a land-based healing centre on Wetsuweten traditional territory south of Houston, B.C.

The locked gate on the Morice River Bridge must come down within 72 hours, the judge ruled.

She described it as an interim injunction giving the company access while defendants Naziel, and his partner F...

Myrtle extract effectively inhibited the inflammation and fibrosis of lung parenchyma in both preventive and therapeutic methods. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Drug Chem Toxicol. 2018 Oct ;41(4):408-414. Epub 2018 May 11. PMID: 29747538 Abstract Title:  Protective effect of standardized extract of Myrtus communis L. (myrtle) on experimentally bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis: biochemical and histopathological study. Abstract:  CONTEXT: Myrtle (Myrtus communis L) has been used widely in traditional medicine for different respiratory disorders. Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is an inflammatory disease characterized by progressive loss of lung function with poor prognosis. The pathogenesis of disease has not been completely elucidated, but probably persistent epithelial damages are involved.OBJECTIVE: Evaluation of biochemical and histopathological effect of preventive and therapeutic doses of myrtle against bleomycin (BLM)-induced pulmonary fibrosis (PF) in animal model.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Methanolic extract of M. communis was prepared by maceration method. Total flavonoid content was determined and experimentally PF was induced in rat with intratracheal instillation of a single dose of BLM (5mg/kg) only on day 0. Myrtle antifibrotic effect was evaluated as preventive (50mg/kg/day, intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection, from day 0-13) and therapeutic agent (50mg/kg, i.p., from day 14-27) in comparison with methyl prednisolone (M-pred) (4mg/kg, i.p. for 14 days).RESULTS: Parenchymal inflammation and fibrotic changes significantly were reduced by myrtle and M-pred. Significant decrease in hydroxyproline content and lipid peroxidation were observed in animals receiving myrtle extract while catalase activity was increased by myrtle. Improvement in inflammation and fibrosis was observed in myrtle group especially in the early phase of fibrosis (preventive regime).DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Myrtle extract effectively inhibited the inflammation and fibrosis of lung parenchyma in both preventive and therapeutic methods. This effect might be due to the reduction of tissue inflammation and inhibition of oxidative stress. More studies are being carried out to find main mechanisms and separation of active compounds.

Police Dog Can't Quite Figure Out His New Winter Booties "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Jary has a very demanding job in law enforcement for a dog.
 
The 5-year-old Belgian Malinois joined the Rapid City (South Dakota) Police Department in 2016, and has gone everywhere with his dad and handler, Senior Officer Hower, ever since.
 
The K9 always finds a way to lighten the mood at the station and brighten his fellow officers' day.
 
His personality is that of a puppy. He loves to play and meet new people, Hower told The Dodo. He loves going to work and hanging out with the other officers at the station.

Jarys natural talent for entertainment came into play last week, when his dad bought the pup some protective footwear to battle the winter chill. Jary has to be prepared for anything, so a little snow and ice cant get in his way when it comes to fighting crime.
 
But when Hower put the new booties on Jary, he didnt expect the dogs hilarious reaction. Luckily, a fellow K9 handler had his phone handy.

Shoes can throw off a dogs balance and friction, and its clear Jary is struggling with both. This was his first time wearing these particular brand of boots, Hower said. We had a good laugh while watching his response to the boots, but encouraged him at the same time.

Hower was just going to share the clip with his family and friends, but since it was posted to the police departments official Facebook page, Jary has become a star. To the surprise of his handler, Jarys video has been viewed nearly 6 million times in under a week.

Contractions Everything You Need To Know "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

actions - Everything You Need To Know

If youre pregnant youre probably doing quite a bit of thinking about contractions. After all, theyre a pretty significant part of birth. For many women, theyre one of the most feared aspects of labour. And you probably have a million questions about contractions.

Contractions - Everything You Need To Know

You've also probably heard all sorts of stories about contractions. For example, how one friend was in labour for three days. Another had contractions on top of one another (whatever that means). And your best friend said she just breathed through hers. Contractions are taking up a lot of your head space right now. So to put your mind at ease weve covered everything you need to know about labour contractions.

What Are Contractions?

Contractions are natures way of starting labour and getting your baby from the inside to the outside. The uterus is made up of two main layers of muscles. The outer layer of muscles in your uterus is different from other muscles in your body. For example, the muscles in your arm contract (shorten), and then return to the same size and shape when they relax. In your uterus, the outer layer of muscles can also contract and relax. During labour, however, instead of returning to the same size, these muscles stay shortened. This shortening acts on the inner layer of muscle, which keeps the cervix closed during pregnancy. As the outer layer of muscles begins to pull up, the inner layer of muscle relaxes and the cervix opens or dilates. This is what we call a labour contraction. When the cervix is fully open, the outer layer of muscle fibres has bunched to the top of the uterus. When the pushing stage of labour begins, these bunched up muscles contract down on the baby, pushing him or her out through the vagina.

A review of the antioxidant activity of Myrtus communis and Myrtus nivellei. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Medicines (Basel). 2018 Aug 11 ;5(3). Epub 2018 Aug 11. PMID: 30103510 Abstract Title:  Antioxidant Activity ofL. andBatt.&Trab. Extracts: A Brief Review. Abstract:  L. (myrtle) andBatt.& Trab. (Saharan myrtle) have been used in folk medicine for alleviating some ailments.is largely distributed in the Mediterranean Basin, whereasis confined in specific zones of the central Saharan mountains. The chemical composition and antioxidant activity of berry and leaf extracts isolated from myrtle are deeply documented, whereas those isolated from Saharan myrtle extracts are less studied. In both species, the major groups of constituents include gallic acid derivatives, flavonols, flavonol derivatives, and hydroxybenzoic acids. In coloured berries, anthocyanins are also present. Inextracts are reported for some compounds not described in M. communis so far: 2-hydroxy-1,8-cineole--d-glucopyranoside, 2-hydroxy-1,8-cineole 2-O--l-arabinofuranosyl (16)--d-glucopyranoside, rugosin A, and rugosin B. Berries and leaves extracts of both species had antioxidant activity. Comparative studies of the antioxidant activity between leaf and berry myrtle extracts revealed that leaf extracts are best antioxidants, which can be assigned to the galloyl derivatives, flavonols, and flavonols derivatives, although the ratio of these groups of compounds might also have an important role in the antioxidant activity. The anthocyanins present in myrtle berries seem to possess weak antioxidant activity. The antioxidant activity of sample extracts depended on various factors: harvesting time, storage, extraction solvent, extraction type, and plant part used, among other factors. Leaf extracts of myrtle revealed to possess anti-inflammatory activity in several models used. This property has been attributed either to the flavonoids and/or hydrolysable tannins, nevertheless nonprenylated acylphloroglucinols (e.g., myrtucommulone and semimyrtucommulone) have also revealed a remarkable role in that activity. The biological activities of myrtle extracts found so far may direct itsuse towards for stabilizing complex lipid systems, as prebiotic in food formulations, and as novel therapeutic for the management of inflammation.

Abstract:  PURPOSE: This study investigates the protective properties of Myrtus communis extract against oxidative effects of Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields (ELFMF). Also this study is aimed to analyze the conformational changes of hemoglobin, oxidative damages to plasma proteins and antioxidant power of plasma following exposure to ELFMF.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Adult male rats were divided into 3 groups: (1) control, (2) ELFMF exposure, and (3) ELFMF exposure after Myrtus communis extract administration. The magnetic field (0.7mT, 50Hz) was produced by a Helmholtz coil for one month, 2hours a day. The Myrtus communis extract was injected intraperitoneally at a dose of 0.5mg/kg before exposure to ELFMF. The oxidative effects of ELFMF were studied by evaluating the hemoglobin, methemoglobin (metHb) and hemichrome levels, absorption spectrum of hemoglobin (200 to 700nm), oxidative damage to plasma proteins by measuring protein carbonyl (PCO) levels and plasma antioxidant power according to ferric reducing ability of plasma (FRAP).

Bottle Propping Warning After Baby Chokes To Death "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bottle Propping Warning After Baby Chokes To Death

Caring for a baby is tiring and sometimes, to make life a little easier, we take shortcuts like bottle propping. As new parents, we take in loads of guidelines, evidence and opinions about child rearing. It can be hard to sort through them, to work out which topics are most important and vital for keeping our children safe. It also adds to our fatigue. Sometimes, too, although caregivers are warned about many things, not every single topic is relayed to them. And sorting through everything that's thrown at us means we sometimes miss an important topic, such as bottle propping.

Bottle Propping Warning After Baby Chokes To Death

Many people assume the warnings against bottle propping have to do with the importance of bonding and healthy development, rather than about any risk to babies. After all, its just a bottle filled with liquid, how could it be physically harmful? We could see bottle propping as a parenting preference a survival tactic rather than a safety issue. However, as one mother so tragically discovered, bottle propping is in fact a risk. The mother, Chloe Masters, didnt prop her sons bottle, but a caregiver did, and it cost her 4-month-old son Alexs life. Masters son died a few years ago, but her message is still relevant today: it is not safe to prop a bottle.

Treating Lyme Disease Successfully with Ozone Therapy "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Another Lyme Disease Miracle

Facebook post by Dr. Robert J. Rowen

I have an interesting clinical case for you today. Another Lyme case.

Lyme is the disease Australian authorities do not believe exists, and will persecute doctors for treating it.

Meanwhile our CDC says its a horrific epidemic, warns against new ticks, and says at least 300,000 Americans are coming down with the disease every year.

This is scientific medicine! One country doesnt want to pay for it and denies its existence. The other does recognize its presence.

I lived this lunacy. In Alaska, the local medical societies VOTED that chelation for metals was fraudulent and mercury amalgam removal from teeth was fraud. Imagine if their efforts to purge me was successful and just 15 years later they were PROVEN wrong in the medical literature (which was already available at the time, if they were not so dogmatically wedded to Pharma).

In our country Lyme is a major problem. MAJOR. It is difficult to treat. It is difficult to diagnose. A negative lab test means nothing. Most treatments are antibiotics. These carry a very significant risk of temporarily or permanently messing you up. And, from the cases Ive seen, most will relapse.

Here is another case of a women essentially disabled from Lyme. The patient is a mother of minor children and registered nurse.

Her whole family is Lyme affected. Her mother spent over $120,000 at a Lyme literate clinic just the past year. The treatments broke her parents. And the treatments mom got are even insurance reimbursable as they were conventional antibiotic therapy.

I am told after seeing the change in her daughter in less than one week, the mother is ready to come to us for ozone therapy.

I also use targeted nutritional supplements which are different from patient to patient. I use kinesiology to help me in the choices.

No, we are not getting everyone with Lyme better, but this case is relatively typical for us, not atypical. Her illness was so severe that she lost 10 years of watching her kids grow, and could not keep her nursing job.

Lyme disease, a bane of conventional medicine, is now our favorite problem to treat as patients go from d...

Beta-Phenethyl isothiocyanate is a promising compound for potential use in leukemia treatment. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Antioxid Redox Signal. 2011 Dec 15 ;15(12):2911-21. Epub 2011 Sep 29. PMID: 21827296 Abstract Title:  Inhibition of mitochondrial respiration and rapid depletion of mitochondrial glutathione by-phenethyl isothiocyanate: mechanisms for anti-leukemia activity. Abstract:  AIMS: -Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) is a natural product with potent anticancer activity against human leukemia cells including drug-resistant primary leukemia cells from patients. This study aimed at investigating the key mechanisms that contribute to the potent anti-leukemia activity of PEITC andat evaluating its therapeutic potential.RESULTS: Our study showed that PEITC caused a rapid depletion of mitochondrial glutathione (GSH) and a significant elevation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and nitric oxide, and induced a disruption of the mitochondrial electron transport complex I manifested by an early degradation of NADH dehydrogenase Fe-S protein-3 and a significant suppression of mitochondrial respiration. Using biochemical and pharmacological approaches, we further showed that inhibition of mitochondrial respiration alone by rotenone caused only a moderate cytotoxicity in leukemia cells, whereas a combination of respiratory inhibition and an ROS-generating agent exhibited a synergistic effect against leukemia and lymphoma cells.INNOVATION AND CONCLUSION: Although PEITC is a reactive compound and might have multiple mechanisms of action, we showed that a rapid depletion of GSH and inhibition of mitochondrial respiration are two important early events that induced synergistic cytotoxicity in leukemia cells. These findings not only suggest that PEITC is a promising compound for potential use in leukemia treatment, but also provide a basis for developing new therapeutic strategies to effectively kill leukemia cells by using a novel combination to modulate ROS and inhibit mitochondrial respiration.

When a 15 year old tells Our Leaders Are Behaving Like Children The world has a problem ! Teen Climate Activist Confronts World Leaders at U.N. Summit "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

climate activist who says politicians here are not doing enough to turn back the clock and prevent catastrophic climate change: 15-year-old Greta Thunberg. 

Transcript:
This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.


AMY GOODMAN: Were broadcasting from the U.N. climate summit in Katowice, Poland, where world leaders are gathered to negotiate climate solutions that could dictate policy for years to come. But we begin todays program with a climate activist who says politicians here are not doing enough to turn back the clock and prevent catastrophic climate change: 15-year-old Greta Thunberg.


Shes made international headlines since launching a school strike against climate change in her home country of Sweden earlier this year. She sat on the steps of the parliament in Stockholm every school day for three weeks, leading up to the Swedish election in September, to demand that politicians take more radical action to stop global warming. After the election, she went back to school, but only for four days a week, because every Friday Greta continues to sit outside the parliament building. Her actions have inspired thousands of students across the globe to do the same. Greta has Aspergers syndrome. She has focused with laser intensity on climate change since she was 9 years old. She brought her message directly to world leaders here in Katowice at the U.N. climate summit. Here she is addressing U.N. Secretary-General Antnio Guterres last week.


GRETA THUNBERG: For 25 years, countless of people have stood in front of the United Nations climate conferences asking our nations leaders to stop the emissions.

But clearly this has not worked, since the emissions just continue to rise. So I will not ask them anything. Instead, I will ask the people around the world to realize that our political leaders have failed us, because we are facing an existential threat and there is no time to continue down this road of madness.


Rich countries like Sweden need to start reducing emissions by at least 15 percent every year to stay below a 2-degree warming target. You would think the media and every one of our leaders would be talking about nothing else, but they never even mention it. Nor does hardly anyone ever mention that we are in the midst of the sixth mass extinction, with up to 200 species going extinct every single day.

Furthermore does no one ever speak about the aspect of equity, clearly stated in the Paris Agreement, which is absolutely necessary to make it work on a global scale. That means that rich countries like mine need to get down to zero emissions within six to 12 year...

Efficacy of two plant extracts against acne vulgaris. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Cosmet Dermatol. 2018 Nov 9. Epub 2018 Nov 9. PMID: 30414245 Abstract Title:  Efficacy of two plant extracts against acne vulgaris: Initial results of microbiological tests and cell culture studies. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Acne vulgaris is a common skin disease characterized by increased sebum production, inflammation, and colonization of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) on pilosebaceous follicles.AIMS: To determine the efficacy of two different plant extracts against P. acnes and to analyze the gene expression levels of IL-1, SRD5A1, and TNF in HaCaT cells treated with these plant extracts.METHODS: Anti-acne extract 1 (AE1) consisted of Juglans regia (walnut husk), Myrtus communis (myrtle leaves), Matricaria chamomilla (chamomilla flowers), Urtica dioica (stinging nettle leaves), and Rosa damascena (rose flowers). Anti-acne extract 2 (AE2) contained Brassica oleracea var. botrytis (broccoli) and B. oleracea var. italica (cauliflower). The antimicrobial activities of the extracts were tested on two different P. acnes strains: the reference strain of P. acnes (ATCC 51277) and the clinical isolate from a patient.

Hobby-grade drones above can monitor marine animals beneath the surface "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Using drones for wildlife surveys isnt new to marine wildlife research, but its been focused mainly on detecting the large mammals and sea turtles that break the oceans surface to breathe. Researchers in The Bahamas wanted to test whether they could also locate the many sharks, rays, and other species that spend time just below the oceans surface using small, commercially available drones. They published their findings and testing methods last month. We found that drones can be used to count and make species-level identifications of marine species, particularly in shallow marine environments, lead author Enie Hensel, a Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University, said in a statement. Sharks, rays, and sea turtles are both disproportionately threatened by human activity and difficult to monitor. The aerial viewpoint offered by drone-borne cameras allows the pilot to detect these large animals beneath the surface. So the researchers set out to test if they could reliably identify animals in video footage taken from drones at different locations. Study lead author Enie Hensel flies a small commercial drone over the shallow waters of The Bahamas to test its utility in surveying and monitoring large marine animals. The researchers conducted aerial surveys and analyzed drone video footage to record the numbers and species of animals spotted. Image by Duncan Brake. They used small commercial-grade quadcopter drones that are relatively affordable, easy to use, and able to carry fairly high-definition video cameras to mimic the equipment that might be available to a wide range of

Amazon Besieged: Q&A with Mongabay contributor Sue Branford about new book "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

From 2016 to 2017, Mongabay contributors Sue Branford and Maurcio Torres traveled to the Tapajs River Basin, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, to report on the controversial plan to turn the region into a major commodities export corridor. Along the way, they visited many of the indigenous villages and other local communities whose very survival is threatened by the more than 40 large hydroelectric dams that are to be built in the region in addition to a railway and numerous roads, canals, and port complexes, all so that soy and other agricultural products can be exported to global markets and fuel Brazils economic growth. Branford and Torres wrote a 15-part investigative series (published in partnership with The Intercept Brazil) based on what theyd found during their travels for Mongabay in the Tapajs Basin, one of the most biodiverse and culturally rich places on Earth. Now, the reporters have turned those pieces into a book, Amazon Besieged, which was published by Practical Action Publishing this month. Cover of Amazon Besieged. Courtesy of Practical Action Publishing. Amazon Besieged tells the story of two writers long investigative trip along the basin in 2016 and 2017, according to Practical Action Publishing. As if travelling through history, the authors were able to trace the way an outside economic force arrives and dispossesses earlier inhabitants. The book has already been heaped with praise. Journalist George Monbiot said: This is a fascinating, important and astonishing account of the battle to save the living world and

Madagascar auctioning a large swath of virgin waters for oil exploration "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

At an oil industry event in Houston in September, representatives of Madagascars government went into auctioneer mode. Their message: Let the bidding commence! They had traveled to Texas to announce that Madagascar was opening up a large area of marine territory to oil exploration. None of the 44 concessions on offer, which cover 63,296 square kilometers (24,440 square miles) in the Mozambique Channel off the countrys west coast, has ever been tendered or explored before. Members of the hydrocarbon industry expressed excitement about the news, but civil society groups oppose the sale, arguing that the potential projects environmental and social impacts have not been evaluated. The coastal waters have a high level of biodiversity, a fragile coral reef network, and a number of marine areas that local fishers manage themselves, all of which could be threatened by oil exploration or drilling. [T]he offshore exploration and production of oil and gas on this scale goes directly against the objectives of protecting fisheries resources and preserving the marine ecosystems on which the livelihoods and food security of a large part of the Malagasy population depend, wrote four civil society groups, led by the Antananarivo-based Research and Support Center for Development AlternativesIndian Ocean (CRAAD-OI), in a statement late last month. International groups have also voiced opposition to the sell-off. The opening of this bidding round is clearly worrying for Madagascars unique marine ecosystems and biodiversity, Franois Chartier, an oceans campaigner for Greenpeace France, told Mongabay by email. Oil drilling could threaten vulnerable species, coral reefs

COP24: Will they stay or will they go? Brazils threat to leave Paris "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

President-elect Jair Bolsonaro pretends to shoot a gun, a signature gesture he uses to punctuate a point in his speeches. The gesture has become a sort of meme and accompanies incendiary language which critics say may be inciting some Brazilians in remote rural areas to violence against indigenous groups and other minorities. Image by Carlos Eugenio. KATOWICE, Poland One by one, Brazilian representatives from science, government and civil society gamely responded publicly in a press conference this week to a question theyd been fielding privately since arriving at the 24th United Nations climate summit, COP24, here in Poland: Would the volatile and staunchly anti-environmental President-elect Jair Bolsonaro follow the path of another volatile and staunchly anti-environmental president to the north and join the United States as the only other nation on earth to promise to leave the historic Paris Agreement? The answer is critically important not only to Brazilians, but to the world. The South American country is the worlds eighth largest economy and is guardian to much of the Amazon rainforest the worlds largest carbon storehouse. I dont think he will leave, said Alfredo Sirkis, a former presidential candidate and member of Brazils Congress, now executive director of the Brazilian Forum on Climate Change. But I didnt think the Trump government would leave either. It depends on a lot of political circumstances. There will be very strong pressure, especially from agribusiness, to remain in the Paris Agreement. At the same time, this is a very idiosyncratic group

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.


AMY GOODMAN: I ran into Wells Griffith on Tuesday here at the U.N. climate talks and attempted to ask him about the Trump administrations climate policy. Griffith immediately began walking and then running away.


AMY GOODMAN: Hi. Im Amy Goodman from Democracy Now!


WELLS GRIFFITH: Im sorry, Ive got to go.


AMY GOODMAN: Can you telloh, no, we came to yourwe came to your report


WELLS GRIFFITH: Im sorry. Ive got to go to another meeting.


AMY GOODMAN: Can you tell us what you think about President Trump saying climate change is a hoax?


WELLS GRIFFITH: Thank you. Excuse me.


AMY GOODMAN: You could answer the question. Are you not speaking to the press here?


WELLS GRIFFITH: ExcuseIm sorry. Im running late for a meeting. Thanks.


AMY GOODMAN: Right, but you werent running late when you were just standing there. So, just answer the question: What is the U.S. doing here, since President Trump said hes pulling out of the Paris Agreement? Can you talk aboutcan you talk about President Trump saying that climate change is a Chinese hoax? Can youare you not talking to the press while youre here?


WELLS GRIFFITH: Maybe we canwe can set something up later, with awith our press


AMY GOODMAN: Who would I talk to? Can I ask if you agree with President Trump calling climate change a hoax? Youre definitely giving me a run for the money here. Can you talk about why the U.S. is here, since President Trump is saying hes pulling the U.S. out of the Paris climate accord? Can you talk about why youre pushing coal? No answer on any issue? Can you talkcan you talk about why the U.S. would not welcome the U.N. report saying that catastrophic climate change is imminent, and the U.S.the world has to wean itself off of coal by 2050?


WELLS GRIFFITH: Ill connect you with our press folks, if you want to give me your card, and Ill have them reach out.


AMY GOODMAN: We could have spoken this whole time. I dont hold out much hope for you to grant me an interview. But if you could answer the question about whether you agree with President Trump calling climate change a hoax? Can you explain why the U.S. is even at the climate summit, given that hes pulling out?

Beta-phenethyl isothiocyanate induces death receptor 5 to induce apoptosis in human oral cancer cells via p38. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Oral Dis. 2012 Jul ;18(5):513-9. Epub 2012 Feb 6. PMID: 22309674 Abstract Title:  -Phenethyl isothiocyanate induces death receptor 5 to induce apoptosis in human oral cancer cells via p38. Abstract:  OBJECTIVES: -Phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) has been demonstrated to fight many types of cancers through various molecular pathways. In this study, we focused on its effect on the induction of apoptosis to inhibit cell growth and molecular mechanism in oral cancer.MATERIALS AND METHODS: 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(2,4-disulfophenyl)-2-(4 sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium (MTS) assay was used to examine cell viability. The apoptotic effect was investigated using 4'-6-Diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI) staining or Western blotting. Inhibitors were used to determine the molecular target and mechanism of PEITC-mediated apoptosis.RESULTS: -Phenylethyl isothiocyanate inhibited the growth of HN22 human oral cancer cells and induced caspase-dependent apoptosis in HN22 cells as evidenced by nuclear fragmentation and the activation of caspase 3. It increased cleaved caspase 8, truncated BID, and death receptor 5 (DR5) through the activation of p38 MAPK. This result was confirmed by blockage of PEITC-induced cleavages of Poly(ADP-ribose) Polymerase, caspase-3, caspase-8, and DR5 by p38 MAPK inhibitor, SB203580. We also found that PEITC activated p38 and augmented DR5 to induce apoptosis in other human oral cancer cells.CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that DR5 is a potential molecular target for PEITC-induced apoptosis in oral cancer via p38 MAPK.

Beta-phenethyl isothiocyanate promotes neurite growth in primary sensory neurons. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Drug Target. 2019 Jan ;27(1):82-93. Epub 2018 Sep 5. PMID: 29877111 Abstract Title:  PEITC promotes neurite growth in primary sensory neurons via the miR-17-5p/STAT3/GAP-43 axis. Abstract:  The present study explored a key miRNA that plays a vital role in sciatic nerve conditioning injury promoting repair of injured dorsal column, and validated its function. Microarray analysis revealed miR-17-5p expression decreased sharply at 3, 7 and 14days in the sciatic nerve conditioning injury group compared with the simple dorsal column lesion group. After miR-17-5p inhibition in DRG neurons, GAP-43 expression was upregulated and neurite growth was increased. STAT3 together with p-STAT3 showed opposite trends with miR-17-5p. MiR-17-5p inhibition extended neurite and upregulated STAT3, p-STAT3 and GAP-43. To further determine a substitution therapy for sciatic nerve conditioning injury, beta-phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), which downregulates miR-17-5p, was assessed. The results showed that treatment with 10M PEITC resulted inlongest neurite length. Further experiments demonstrated PEITC induced neurite growth by inhibiting miR-17-5p and further upregulating STAT3, p-STAT3 and GAP-43. The somatosensory evoked potential test confirmed similar treatment effects for PEITC, Ad-miRNA-17-5p inhibitor, and sciatic nerve conditioning injury on the dorsal column lesion. In conclusion, the miR-17-5p/STAT3/GAP-43 axis is an indispensable component of sciatic nerve conditioning injury promoting repair of injured dorsal column. PEITC could promote repair of injured dorsal column via the miR-17-5p/STAT3/GAP-43 axis, and could mimic the treatment effect of sciatic nerve conditioning injury.

Cow Takes Wrong Step And Falls Into Huge Sinkhole "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One morning last week, the Lincoln County Fire Department got a call about a cow whod gotten stuck in a sinkhole, and was completely unable to pull herself out on her own. The hole was about 20 feet deep, and while the man who found her tried everything he could think of to help her out, he eventually decided to call for help

Credit: Dustin Whited

Around noon, the man contacted the fire department in hopes that they could help. The department sent some firefighters out to the scene, but they quickly realized that the rescue was going to be a tricky one, and wasnt something they would be able to do on their own. 

In order to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible, the Lincoln County Fire Department decided to call in the Jessamine County Fire Department and the Lexington County Fire Department as well, to provide extra crew members and equipment, so that the poor cow would have the absolute best chance of getting out of that sinkhole as quickly as possible. 

Credit: Dustin Whited

Once on scene the fire department realized the rescue was beyond their scope, Captain Dustin Whited, who works with both the Lexington County Fire Department and the Lincoln County Fire Department, told The Dodo. Most of them know that I am on the technical rescue team in Lexington. I got a call about the cow and they inquired if we would respond to assist them. 

Once the entire rescue crew was assembled, they all assessed the situation together and formulated the best plan to get the cow out of the hole safe and sound. Throughout the entire process, the cow seemed scared and confused and yet remained calm, as if she knew that a whole team of people were working together to get her out.

Intuitive Astrology: December Full Moon 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The December 22nd Full Moon falls in the water sign of Cancer and is one of the most potent of the year. It brings a mixed bag of energy, representing completion, release, and new beginnings all at the same time.

In a sense, this Full Moon is helping us to wrap up the year gone by, but it is also preparing us for whats ahead as well.

On this Full Moon, we are going to feel encouraged to release the year, to let go of any heavy or dead weight we are carrying, and to surrender to all that was and all that has been.

There is no changing the past, and there is no use in feeling regret. All we can do is look forward, and take the necessary steps and actions that are in our control. All else can just fade away, and be released to Mother Moon for clearing, so we can start a new chapter with a clean fresh slate.

Along with this energy of clearing and completion, we also have this air of new beginnings too. Its almost like this Full Moon will be preparing us for whats to come, and guiding us as to what energies, themes, and lessons we may be working with in the new year.

This Full Moon is special because it falls at zero degrees of Cancer. Whenever a Full Moon, or any other planet for that matter, falls at zero degrees, it signifies infinite possibilities and an opening of opportunity.

All through 2019, and even through part of 2020, we have a new Eclipse cycle starting involving both Cancer and Capricorn.

This makes this Full Moon not only the last of the year, but also the last Cancer Full Moon we will have for a while. All of the other Cancer Lunar cycles from this point forward will be Eclipses and this theme will continue until 2020.

Seeing as this is the last Cancer Full Moon for a while, it is going to unlock a new portal of energy and give us some clues as to what this new string of Cancer Eclipses may have in store for us.

Decembers Cancer Full Moon is like the entrance point to this new journey and will start paving the way forward for a huge cycle of growth that will unfold over the coming years.

Under this Cancer Full Moon, try to still your mind and soften your soul. Try to tune in to the soft, still voice from within and see if you can hear the whispers or the messages of the Universe calling to you.

Observe the theme of what surrounds you, as its likely that this Full Moon will tell a story that you can come back to at some point in the future.

On this sensitive Full Moon, we may also feel issues with our...

-phenylethyl isothiocyanate could be a functional ingredient for oral cancer prevention. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Food Funct. 2018 Jul 17 ;9(7):3640-3656. PMID: 29923573 Abstract Title:  Sensory acceptable equivalent doses of-phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) induce cell cycle arrest and retard the growth of p53 mutated oral cancer in vitro and in vivo. Abstract:  High doses of-phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), a phytochemical in cruciferous vegetables, are not feasible for consumption due to a strong mouth-tingling effect. This study investigated the anti-cancer effect of PEITC at sensory acceptable doses. In vitro, PEITC was selectively toxic to oral cancer cells (CAL-27, FaDu, SCC4, SCC 9, SCC15, SCC25 and TU138), compared to oral keratinocytes (OKF6/TERT2 and NOK/Si). In vivo, 5 and 10 mg kg-1 PEITC, equivalent to human organoleptically acceptable doses, retarded tumor growth and prolonged the survival of mice bearing p53-mutated oral cancer cells - TU138 xenograft. Mechanistically, PEITC induced ROS accumulation, nuclear translocation of p53 and p21 and G1/S cell cycle arrest in vitro; increased p53 and 8-oxo-dG levels; and decreased Ki-67 intense/mild staining ratios without TUNEL changes in vivo. These findings suggested that the sensory acceptabledoses of PEITC selectively induced ROS-mediated cell cycle arrest leading to delayed tumor progression and extended survival. PEITC could be a functional ingredient for oral cancer prevention.

The Crypto Markets May be in a Rout, But the Blockchain Job Market is in Full Swing "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Although the crypto markets are caught in a persisting bear market, blockchain jobs are in a raging bull market, with blockchain developer job growth topping this years LinkedIn Emerging Jobs Report.

The report, which was released by LinkedIn on December 13th, analyzes the fastest growing jobs in the US, and notes that the blockchain industry was the fastest growing job market in 2018.

Crypto Crashed, But Blockchain Still Thriving 

Although the cryptocurrency markets have faltered throughout 2018 and are currently sitting at their lowest price levels since mid-2017, the blockchain development industry is thriving.

The LinkedIn report notes that in the United States, blockchain developer jobs saw 33x growth in 2018, significantly more than the second fastest growing job of machine learning engineers, which grew by 12x throughout the year.

The report notes that within the blockchain development sector, the most widely sought-after skills are knowledge and experience with Solidity (smart contracts), blockchain technology, Ethereum, cryptocurrency, and Node.js.

Within the market, most of the demand for workers with skills and a knowledge base in the aforementioned technologies stemmed from three main companies, including IBM, ConsenSys, and Chainyard, and three main cities, including San Francisco, New York City, and Atlanta.

Although the demand for blockchain developers is incredibly high, the crypto rout has undeniably stagnated this growth, as many companies in the blockchain sector have been impacted by the market crash.

ConsenSys, who LinkedIn notes as being one of the biggest blockchain employers, recently underwent a company restructuring that resulted in 13% of the companys staff being cut.

The restructuring, which has been dubbed as ConsenSys 2.0 by the companys leaders, will result in more rigorous milestones and will lead to increased focus on the projects with the most long-term potent...

These findings support the potential prophylactic impact of watercress during radiotherapy. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Eur J Nutr. 2018 Jul 31. Epub 2018 Jul 31. PMID: 30066177 Abstract Title:  Metabolic targets of watercress and PEITC in MCF-7 and MCF-10A cells explain differential sensitisation responses to ionising radiation. Abstract:  PURPOSE: Watercress is a rich source of phytochemicals with anticancer potential, including phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC). We examined the potential for watercress extracts and PEITC to increase the DNA damage caused by ionising radiation (IR) in breast cancer cells and to be protective against radiation-induced collateral damage in healthy breast cells. The metabolic events that mediate such responses were explored using metabolic profiling.METHODS: H nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy-based metabolic profiling was coupled with DNA damage-related assays (cell cycle, Comet assay, viability assays) to profile the comparative effects of watercress and PEITC in MCF-7 breast cancer cells and MCF-10A non-tumorigenic breast cells with and without exposure to IR.RESULTS: Both the watercress extract and PEITC-modulated biosynthetic pathways of lipid and protein synthesis and resulted in changes in cellular bioenergetics. Disruptions to the redox balance occurred with both treatments in the two cell lines, characterised by shifts in the abundance of glutathione. PEITC enhanced the sensitivity of the breast cancer cells to IR increasing the effectiveness of the cancer-killing process. In contrast, watercress-protected non-tumorigenic breast cells from radiation-induced damage. These effects were driven by changes in the cellular content of the antioxidant glutathione following exposure to PEITC and other phytochemicals in watercress.CONCLUSION: These findings support the potential prophylactic impact of watercress during radiotherapy. Extracted compounds from watercress and PEITC differentially modulate cellular metabolism collectively enhancing the therapeutic outcomes of radiotherapy.

PMID:  Anticancer Res. 2018 Nov ;38(11):6069-6083. PMID: 30396921 Abstract Title:  Transcriptomic Analysis of Histone Methyltransferase Setd7 Knockdown and Phenethyl Isothiocyanate in Human Prostate Cancer Cells. Abstract:  BACKGROUND/AIM: Transcriptomic analysis was performed to evaluate the differential gene expression profiles of Setd7 knockdown (KD) and the effects of phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) in human prostate cancer (PCa) LNCaP cells.MATERIALS AND METHODS: RNA isolated from wild-type and Setd7-KD LNCaP cells in the presence or absence of PEITC was subjected to microarray analysis followed by Ingenuity Pathway Analysis (IPA).RESULTS: Setd7 KD impacted a larger set of genes and caused a higher fold change compared to PEITC treatment. Several signaling pathways were altered particularly inflammation-related TNFR signaling and PTEN/PI3K/AKT signaling by Setd7 KD and PEITC. Interestingly, PEITC and Setd7 KD at a small subset of genes that could be potential molecular targets.CONCLUSION: This study offers new insights into the mechanisms of action of the epigenetic modifier Setd7 and the effects of PEITC treatment in PCa cells and enhances our understanding of the potential cancer preventive/treatment effects of isothiocyanate compounds such as PEITC in PCa.

Phenethyl isothiocyanate inhibits colorectal cancer stem cells by suppressing Wnt/-catenin pathway. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Phytother Res. 2018 Dec ;32(12):2447-2455. Epub 2018 Aug 30. PMID: 30159926 Abstract Title:  Phenethyl isothiocyanate inhibits colorectal cancer stem cells by suppressing Wnt/-catenin pathway. Abstract:  Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are considered to play essential roles in the process of origination, proliferation, migration, and invasion of cancer, and their properties are regulated by Wnt/-catenin pathway. Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) is a natural product obtained from cruciferous vegetables with anticancer activities. The present study aimed to investigate the inhibitory effect and the underlying mechanisms of PEITC on colorectal CSCs. In this study, we found that PEITC can significantly reduce the size and number of colorectal cancer cell spheroids in serum-free medium. With increasing PEITC concentrations (10-40 M), the number of spheroids was reduced to about 10% of the control group, and the percentage of CD133+ cells was decreased by about 3-16 folds. PEITC alsodecreased the expression of CSC markers. Meanwhile, inhibition of proliferation as well as induction of apoptosis of colorectal CSCs was observed after PEITC treatment. Furthermore, through activating Wnt/-catenin pathway with LiCl, the inhibitory effects of PEITC on colorectal CSCs were diminished. Our data suggested that PEITC can be an effective inhibitor of colorectal CSCs by targeting Wnt/-catenin pathway.

Phenethyl isothiocyanate inhibits in vivo growth of xenograft tumors of human glioblastoma cells. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Molecules. 2018 Sep 10 ;23(9). Epub 2018 Sep 10. PMID: 30201893 Abstract Title:  Phenethyl Isothiocyanate Inhibits In Vivo Growth of Xenograft Tumors of Human Glioblastoma Cells. Abstract:  Phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC) from cruciferous vegetables can inhibit the growth of various human cancer cells. In previous studies, we determined that PEITC inhibited the in vitro growth of human glioblastoma GBM 8401 cells by inducing apoptosis, inhibiting migration and invasion, and altering gene expression. Nevertheless, there are no further in vivo reports disclosing whether PEITC can suppress the growth of glioblastoma. Therefore, in this study we investigate the anti-tumor effects of PEITC in a xenograft model of glioblastoma in nude mice. Thirty nude mice were inoculated subcutaneously with GBM 8401 cells. Mice with one palpable tumor were divided randomly into three groups: control, PEITC-10, and PEITC-20 groups treated with 0.1% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), and 10 and 20mole PEITC/100 L PBS daily by oral gavage, respectively. PEITC significantly decreased tumor weights and volumes of GBM 8401 cells in mice, but did not affect the total body weights of mice. PEITC diminished the levels of anti-apoptotic proteins MCL-1 (myeloid cell leukemia 1) and XIAP (X-linkedinhibitor of apoptosis protein) in GBM 8401 cells. PEITC enhanced the levels of caspase-3 and Bax in GBM 8401 cells. The growth of glioblastoma can be suppressed by the biological properties of PEITC in vivo. These effects might support further investigations into the potential use of PEITC as an anticancer drug for glioblastoma.

The Phantom Killer Destroying Your Body "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Prepare for Change

Ongoing research has revealed that an average person is exposed to over 80,000 known toxins and heavy metals every day. They are commonly found in drinking water, chemtrails, furniture, pharmaceutical drugs, and even the air we breathe.

With constant exposure, heavy metals can quickly build up in the bodys tissues without our knowledge and become phantom killers. Even at lower levels, heavy metal exposure can create serious health issues that can impact the bodys ability to function properly.

Many of the symptoms from low-grade heavy metal toxicity are often confused with common health issues, including:

  • Chronic fatigue and brain fog
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Skin rashes and eczema
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders

The vague nature of these symptoms is one reason why heavy metals have become such a significant problem.

A Difficult Diagnosis

When visiting a doctor to diagnose these symptoms, it is highly unlikely they will consider heavy metal toxicity.

Doctors arent trained to look for buildup of heavy metals in the body. Not to mention that acute heavy metal accumulation is exceptionally difficult to test and detect.

As a result, many people suffer from the negative effects of heavy metal toxicity without even knowing it. This is why some people put effort into improving their diet and get absolutely nowhere in improving their overall health.  

Trying to improve your health without addressing heavy metals is like building a bridge without a support system. It may seem like you are making progress at first, but you will ultimately fail.

Finding the Heart of a Nation in Generations of Black Art "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Norman Lewis, America the Beautiful (1960) oil on canvas, 50 x 64 inches (photo by the author for Hyperallergic)

In the first gallery of the Soul of a Nation exhibition at Brooklyn Museum one is confronted with a Manichean visual scheme. Except for Richard Mayhews Pastoral painting, which is itself a muted arrangement of heathery tones, this introductory room is monochrome, black made stentorian situated against shades of white, and white made vivid against ebony. How meaningful this contrast can be is illustrated by two paintings by Norman Lewis. The one that faces the viewer entering through the main doors, Processional (1965), contains a ground that is black, and an abstract array of interwoven, almost-cubist off-white figures wend across the canvas like an undulant line of figures seen through a fun-house telescope. Then, in another painting by Lewis, this one from 1960, the figures metastasize throughout the background, shrouded in white as if enrobed by it some of them look like triangles with heads and two feet. Then there is a cross. I knew in that moment that if the story alluded to in the image played out, that cross would soon be on fire. The painting is titled America the Beautiful.

Before You Can Be With Others, First Learn to Be Alone "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Clamdigger 1935 by Edward Hopper. Courtesy Sharon Mollerus/Flickr

Editors note: This article was written by Jennifer Stitt, a graduate student in the history of philosophy at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

In 1840, Edgar Allan Poe described the mad energy of an ageing man who roved the streets of London from dusk till dawn. His excruciating despair could be temporarily relieved only by immersing himself in a tumultuous throng of city-dwellers. He refuses to be alone, Poe wrote. He is the type and the genius of deep crime He is the man of the crowd.

Like many poets and philosophers through the ages, Poe stressed the significance of solitude. It was such a great misfortune, he thought, to lose the capacity to be alone with oneself, to get caught up in the crowd, to surrender ones singularity to mind-numbing conformity. Two decades later, the idea of solitude captured Ralph Waldo Emersons imagination in a slightly different way: quoting Pythagoras, he wrote: In the morning, solitude; that nature may speak to the imagination, as she does never in company. Emerson encouraged the wisest teachers to press upon their pupils the importance of periods and habits of solitude, habits that made serious and abstracted thought possible.

In the 20th century, the idea of solitude formed the center of Hannah Arendts thought. A German-Jewish migr who fled Nazism and found refuge in the United States, Arendt spent much of her life studying the relationship between the individual and the polis. For her, freedom was tethered to both the private sphere the vita contemplativa  and the public, political sphere the vita activa. She understood that freedom entailed more than the human capacity to act spontaneously and creatively in public. It also entailed the capacity to think and to judge in private, where solitude empowers the individual to contemplate her actions and develop her conscience, to escape the cacophony of the crowd to finally hear herself think.

In 1961, The New Yorker commissioned Arendt to cover the trial of Adolf Eichmann, a Nazi SS officer who helped to orchestrate the Holocaust. How could anyone, she wanted to know, perpetrate such evil? Surely only a wicked so...

Phenethyl isothiocyanate activates leptin signaling and decreases food intake. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  PLoS One. 2018 ;13(11):e0206748. Epub 2018 Nov 1. PMID: 30383868 Abstract Title:  Phenethyl isothiocyanate activates leptin signaling and decreases food intake. Abstract:  Obesity, a principal risk factor for the development of diabetes mellitus, heart disease, and hypertension, is a growing and serious health problem all over the world. Leptin is a weight-reducing hormone produced by adipose tissue, which decreases food intake via hypothalamic leptin receptors (Ob-Rb) and the Janus kinase 2/signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (JAK2/STAT3) signaling pathway. Protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) negatively regulates leptin signaling by dephosphorylating JAK2, and the increased activity of PTP1B is implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity. Hence, inhibition of PTP1B may help prevent and reduce obesity. In this study, we revealed that phenethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), a naturally occurring isothiocyanate in certain cruciferous vegetables, potently inhibits recombinant PTP1B by binding to the reactive cysteinyl thiol. Moreover, we found that PEITC causes the ligand-independent phosphorylation of Ob-Rb, JAK2, and STAT3 by inhibiting cellular PTP1B in differentiated human SH-SY5Y neuronal cells. PEITC treatment also induced nuclear accumulation of phosphorylated STAT3, resulting in enhanced anorexigenic POMC expression and suppressed orexigenic NPY/AGRP expression. We demonstrated that oral administration of PEITC to mice significantly reduces food intake, and stimulates hypothalamic leptin signaling. Our results suggest that PEITC might help prevent and improve obesity.

What not to save into a Git repository "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

https://medium.com/media/33cc57e35154ae349a9f32018a462569/href

You should not commit these four types of files into your Git repository.

  1. Files that dont belong to the project
  2. Files that are automatically generated
  3. Libraries (depends on the situation)
  4. Credentials

Files that dont belong to the project

Files like .DS_Store (for Mac OS), Thumds.db (for Windows), .vscode (for code editors) have nothing to do with your project.

They should not be checked in.

Files that are automatically generated

This includes files from preprocessors (like Sass to CSS). You dont check in the CSS. You check in the Sass files.

If you use JavaScript compilers like Webpack or Rollup, you dont check in the generated JavaScript file. You check in the code you write.

Libraries

If you dont use a package manager, you should check in your libraries. This is because if you want to download the library, you have to:

  1. Google for the library
  2. Get to the website
  3. Find the link
  4. Download the library
  5. Put into your project

This process is tedious. If your code needs the library to work, you should check in the library.

On the other hand, if you use a package manager, you shouldnt check in a library because you can install the library with a single command like npm install.

Credentials

You shouldnt store credentials like usernames, passwords, API keys and API secrets.

If someone else steals your credentials, they can do nasty things with it. I almost lost $40,00 to $60,000 because a friend accidentally exposed my amazon credentials. Luckily, the amount was waived.

If you dont want to get into sticky situations like I did, then dont store your credentials in a Git repository.

Lifestyle Changes, Not a Magic Pill, Can Reverse Alzheimers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Editors note: This article was written by Clayton Dalton, a medical resident at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He attended medical school at Columbia University.

Last summer, a research group from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) quietly published the results of a new approach in the treatment of Alzheimers disease. What they found was striking. Although the size of the study was small, every participant demonstrated such marked improvement that almost all were found to be in the normal range on testing for memory and cognition by the studys end. Functionally, this amounts to a cure.

These are important findings, not only because Alzheimers disease is projected to become ever more common as the population ages, but because current treatment options offer minimal improvement at best. Last July, a large clinical trial found little benefit in patients receiving a major new drug called LMTX. And after that, another hopeful drug designed to target amyloid protein, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimers disease, failed its first large clinical trial as well.  Just two months ago, Merck announced the results of its trial of a drug called verubecestat, which is designed to inhibit formation of amyloid protein. It was found to be no better than placebo.

The results from UCLA arent due to an incredible new drug or medical breakthrough, though. Rather, the researchers used a protocol consisting of a variety of different lifestyle modifications to optimise metabolic parameters such as inflammation and insulin resistance that are associated with Alzheimers disease. Participants were counselled to change their diet (a lot of veggies), exercise, develop techniques for stress management, and improve their sleep, among other interventions. The most common side effect was weight loss.

The study is notable not only for its remarkable outcomes, but also for the alternative paradigm it represents in the treatment of a complex, chronic disease. Weve spent billions of dollars in an effort to understand the molecular basis of Alzheimers in the hope that it will lead to a cure, or at least to more effective therapies. And although we have greatly enlarged our knowledge of the disease, it has not yielded many successful treatmen...

Editorial: Douthats post-Christian future, a response "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Yesterday, columnist Ross Douthat wrote The Return of Paganism for the New York Times. As the essays subtitle commented, Maybe there actually is a genuinely post-Christian future for America.

As I read the article, what I find myself focused on is the incredible disservice this essay did the writ large Pagan community around the world. Mr. Douthat reduces Paganism to a series of disconnected beliefs in spiritual and supernatural forces that focuses skeptically on moral standards, although he correctly points out that Paganism generally centers on immanent reality as a manifestation of the spiritual.

At the same time, Mr. Douthat becomes trapped by the philosophical perspectives of pantheism of Nietzsche, Spinoza, and even Walt Whitman. He plays with the cultic aspects of Pagan world, and finally does his greatest disservice by engaging in an ever-present, and frankly ignorant, need to link together New Agers and neo-pagans [sic]. He exposes his ignorance of the Pagan and polytheist community by noting that he has in mind the countless New Age practices that promise health and well-being and good fortune, the psychics and mediums who promise communication with the spirit world, and also the world of explicit neo-paganism, Wiccan and otherwise. He ultimately laments that there may soon be more witches in the United States than members of the United Church of Christ.

The essay is ripe with disdain. He suggests that Paganism is some civic cult with supernatural experimentation driven by secret societies of literati weaving post-Christian intellectualism into society.

Douthat has it backwards. I was disappointed in the New York Times for furthering what is Mr. Douthats obvious and patriarchal lamentation in his essay: the demise of religious moral control. Douthat appears to be profoundly disturbed at the loss of central moral authority, and, apparently unable to cope with what organized religion has done to itself, seeks a scapegoat in Paganism.

Organized religions have failed their faithful and the broader society in two ways. First, these religions promulgated a social morality that, codified by misogyny, shackled their followers with fear. They focused on creating social conditions that stratified authority and concentrated it in the hands of a few men. Religions of this kind developed not only a legal architecture to affirm their control but also powerful mechanisms including military and security forces to ensure compliance of their faithful.

Argentina has officially created two large marine protected areas: the Yaganes Marine National Park, lying off of the countrys southern tip, and the Namuncur-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park in the South Atlantic. Together, the two parks cover a total area of about 98,000 square kilometers (37,000 square miles). By designating these two marine parks, Argentina has increased the total area of its protected ocean to about 8 percent. This puts the country closer to achieving its commitment of protecting 10 percent of its national waters by 2020 under the biodiversity targets of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Yaganes Marine National Park lies off the southern tip of Argentina, while Namuncur-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park is located in the South Atlantic.

Palm oil giant Wilmar promises to take harder line with errant suppliers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The worlds biggest palm oil trader has updated its sustainability policy, as its self-imposed deadline to stop buying palm oil linked to a variety of environmental and social ills draws closer. Beginning in January 2019, Wilmar International will freeze purchases from suppliers found to be in violation of its sustainability policy, which bars plantation companies from clearing rainforests and peatlands, grabbing land from rural communities and mistreating workers. Previously, Wimar would continue to buy palm oil from these firms while it engaged with them. The Singapore-listed conglomerate also said it would require some suppliers that violate its policy to submit recovery plans. The Recovery Plans may include options to protect and restore forest, bare land and/or peat swamps and to assist local communities to secure social forestry rights, Wilmar said in a statement announcing the changes. It may be a while before any recovery plans are put into effect. The specifics have yet to be defined, a process Wilmar says will begin in January. The firm is giving suppliers until the end of 2019 to submit the plans. Those that fail to do so will enter the Grievance Procedure, an indefinite process that can take any amount of time, a spokesperson acknowledged. Engagement is essential to bring these suppliers up to compliance with our NDPE policy rather than drive them towards a growing leakage market of unsustainable palm oil, the spokesperson said in an email. However, we will suspend suppliers who refuse to comply or do not show any progress in moving

COP24: Fossil Fuel Inc.s outsize presence at talks reflects its influence "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

KATOWICE, Poland How did you get here? asked the angry fossil fuel company executive. Have you ever been to Nigeria? responded the agitated environmental activist. This was part of an exchange between Swedish environmental activists and a senior executive from oil-and-gas giant Royal Dutch Shell at the ongoing United Nations climate summit in Katowice, Poland. Not exactly fighting words, but not a friendly conversation either. What it exposed, though, was just how deeply entrenched parties with a vested interest in fossil fuels are in influencing the global climate pact. It started after Shell, among the top 10 fossil fuel companies in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, presented its future scenario on climate change, called SKY, during a side event at the climate talks on Dec. 11. Shells chief climate change adviser, David Hone, and its projects and technology director, Harry Brekelmans, said solutions ranging from carbon capture technology to hydrogen fuel and market-based mechanisms would be essential to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit), as targeted by the Paris Climate Agreement. Brekelmans responded to charges that Shell had willfully withheld since 1988 knowledge that its fossil fuels were contributing to climate change, saying that no one company was responsible for the current climate situation. So we are all responsible for this, he said. We cant be pointing fingers at each other to say that you are unilaterally causing [climate change]. Because we are all enjoying the energy in this room with electricity powered by fossil fuel.

Every Bubble Is In Search Of A Pin "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This article was originally published by Chris Martenson at PeakProsperity.com

Now that the worlds central banking cartel is taking a long-overdue pause from printing money and handing it to the wealthy elite, the collection of asset price bubbles nested within the Everything Bubble are starting to burst.

The cartel (especially the ECB and the Fed) is hoping it can gently deflate these bubbles it created, but thats a fantasy. Bubbles always burst badly; its their nature to do so. Economic suffering and misery always accompany their termination.

Its said that every bubble is in search of a pin. History certainly shows they always manage to find one.

History also shows that after the puncturing, pundits obsess over what precise pin triggered it, as if that matters.  It doesnt, because cause of a bubbles bursting can be anything. It can be a wayward comment by a finance minister, otherwise innocuous at any other time, that spooks a critical European bond market at exactly the right (wrong?) moment, triggering a runaway cascade.

Or it might be the routine bankruptcy of a small company that unexpectedly exposes an under-hedged counterpart, thereby setting off a chain reaction across the corporate bond market before the contagion quickly spreads into other key elements of the financial system.

Or perhaps it will be the US Justice Department arresting a Chinese technology executive on murky, over-reaching charges to bully an ally into accepting that unilateral US sanctions are to be abided by everyone, regardless of sovereignty.

How was it that the famous Tulip Bulb bubble came to a crashing end back in the 1600s? No one knows the exact moment or trigger. But we can easily imagine that in some Dutch pub on the fateful night on the Feb 3rd 1637, a bidder on the most-coveted of all bulbs, the Semper Augustus, had an upset stomach and briefly grimaced when hit by a ripping gas pain:

The Myth Of Hercules Is The Story Within All Of Us "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


Myths arise as a form of identity for people or a nation. They are heroic stories, mostly from ancient times, about Gods and outrageously brave men and powerful women. Although most are old, new ones do continue to emerge.

Roald E. Kristiansen, associate professor at the Department of History and Religious Studies at the University of Troms explains:

Nation-building myths often develop in a time of crisis, for example if there is a war, or a period of great political or ideological upheaval. After such a time of turmoil, it feels important to create unity and a national identity. There is a desire to create a future by looking back on past ideals. There will almost be a period of national romanticism, where the myths you share say something about who you wish to be as a people.

These parables are also trying to tell us something. The are meant to instill in us a set of morals too, not only national pride. Maybe they even tell us who we are, or who we are supposed to be. Take the myth of The 12 Labors Of Hercules for example. You probably already know about Hercules as that legendary strong hero. He is well-known for his strength and courage. But do you really know the full story?

You can begin by watching this short video by Alex Gendler to familiarize yourself with the story:

N. officinale is a promising topical anti-inflammatory agent to treat inflammatory disorders. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  J Ethnopharmacol. 2019 Jan 30 ;229:190-204. Epub 2018 Oct 17. PMID: 30339978 Abstract Title:  Nasturtium officinale R. Br. effectively reduces the skin inflammation induced by croton oil via glucocorticoid receptor-dependent and NF-B pathways without causing toxicological effects in mice. Abstract:  ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Inflammatory skin diseases treatments currently used cause adverse effects. Nasturtium officinale (watercress) is used popularly as an anti-inflammatory. However, until now, no study proved its effectiveness as a topical treatment to inflammatory skin diseases. The topical anti-inflammatory activity of N. officinale crude extract leaves (NoE) on an irritant contact dermatitis (ICD) model croton oil-induced in mice was investigated.MATERIALS AND METHODS: ICD models were induced by a single (1mg/ear; acute) or repeated (0.4mg/ear; chronic; 9 days total) croton oil application. NoE and dexamethasone solutions' (diluted in acetone; 20L/ear) or NoE gel, dexamethasone gel and base gel (15mg/ear) were topically applied immediately after croton oil application. The NoE topical anti-inflammatory effect was evaluated for inflammatory parameters (ear edema, inflammatory cells infiltration, and inflammatory cytokines levels). NoE topical anti-inflammatory mechanism (NF-B pathway and effect glucocorticoid-like) were assessed by western blot and ear edema analyses, respectively. UHPLC-MS/MS chromatography, gels accelerated stability and preliminary study of adverse effects was also performed.RESULTS: UHPLC-MS/MS of the NoE revealed the presence of coumaric acid, rutin, and ferulic acid. NoE gels stability study showed no relevant changes at low temperature. NoE, dexamethasone, NoE gel and dexamethasone gel inhibited the ear edema croton oil-induced by 826% (1mg/ear), 991% (0.1mg/ear), 818% (3%) and 706% (0.5%) for the acute model, and 497% (1mg/ear), 804% (0.1mg/ear), 418% (3%) and 4614% (0.5%) for the chronic model, respectively. The same treatments also reduced the inflammatory cells infiltration by 623% (1mg/ear), 972% (0.1mg/ear), 603% (3%) and 666% (0.5%) for the acute model, respectively, and 258% (1mg/ear) to NoE and 8313% to dexamethasone to the chronic model. NoE and NoE gel reduced the pro-inflammatorycytokines levels (acute ICD model) by 625% and 713% (MIP-2) and 323% and 444% (IL-1), while dexamethasone solution's and gel reduced by 797% and 444% to MIP-2 and 982% and 839% to IL-1, respectively. NoE' and dexamethasone' solutions inhibited the reduction of IkB- protein expression induced by croton oil by 100% and 8014%, respectively. Besides, the mifepristone (glucocorticoid receptor antagonist) pre-treatment prevented the topical anti-edematogenic ef...

Anger is Temporary Madness: The Stoics Knew How to Curb It "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Editors note: This article was written by Massimo Pigliucci, professor of philosophy at City College and at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

People get angry for all sorts of reasons, from the trivial ones (someone cut me off on the highway) to the really serious ones (people keep dying in Syria and nobody is doing anything about it). But, mostly, anger arises for trivial reasons. Thats why the American Psychological Association has a section of its website devoted to anger management. Interestingly, it reads very much like one of the oldest treatises on the subject, On Anger, written by the Stoic philosopher Lucius Annaeus Seneca back in the first century CE.

Seneca thought that anger is a temporary madness, and that even when justified, we should never act on the basis of it because, though other vices affect our judgment, anger affects our sanity: others come in mild attacks and grow unnoticed, but mens minds plunge abruptly into anger. Its intensity is in no way regulated by its origin: for it rises to the greatest heights from the most trivial beginnings.

The perfect modern milieu for anger management is the internet. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account, or write, read or comment on a blog, you know what I mean. Heck, Twitter anger has been brought up to new heights (or lows, depending on your point of view) by the current president of the United States, Donald Trump.

I too write quite a bit on online forums. Its part of my job as an educator, as well as, I think, my duty as a member of the human polis. The conversations I have with people from all over the world tend to be cordial and mutually instructive, but occasionally it gets nasty. A prominent author who recently disagreed with me on a technical matter quickly labelled me as belonging to a department of bullshit. Ouch! How is it possible not to get offended by this sort of thing, especially when its coming not from an anonymous troll, but from a famous guy with more than 200,000 followers? By implementing the advice of another Stoic philosopher, the second-century slave-turned-teacher Epictetus, who admonished his students in this way: Remember that it is we who torment, we who make difficulties for ourselves that is, our opi...

Serum markers of inflammation mediate the positive association between neuroticism and depression. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Front Psychiatry. 2018 ;9:609. Epub 2018 Nov 20. PMID: 30524320 Abstract Title:  Serum Markers of Inflammation Mediate the Positive Association Between Neuroticism and Depression. Abstract:  The personality trait neuroticism has been implicated in a poor response to stress, may relate to increased concentrations of cytokines and the development of depression. Inflammatory mechanisms may also be associated with the onset, severity and symptoms of depression. Both are related to poor antidepressant treatment outcome. Therefore, mediators of inflammation may bridge the relationship between neuroticism and depression.To disentangle these interrelationships, the associations between neuroticism (according to NEO-PIR-N), depressive symptoms (BDI-II scores) and serum levels of hsCRP, TNF-, IFN-, IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-10, IL-12, IL-13, GM-CSF were investigated in a group of 212 participants, consisting of 37 depressed and 175 non-depressed subjects. A mediation model was used to investigate whether the impact of neuroticism on depressive symptoms may be mediated by cytokines.Regression analyses revealed that IFN-, IL-5, and IL-12-levels, but none of the anti-inflammatory cytokines, were associated with the overall neuroticism score and several of the cytokines were related to the different facets of neuroticism. TNF-, IFN-, IL-5, IL-12, and IL-13 were further related to the severity of depressive symptoms, as well as the somatic-affective and the cognitive dimensions of depression. Pro-inflammatory IFN-, IL-5 and IL-12 were identified as mediators of the positive prediction of depression severity by the degree of neuroticism.The current findings demonstrate that conditions related to long-term stress, such as depression and high neuroticism, are related to an up-regulation of inflammatory agents. Neuroticism may increase stress perception and, thus, increase the production of pro-inflammatory messenger molecules which are involved in the development of depression. This evidence may contribute to future anti-inflammatory interventions, particularly in subjects with high neuroticism who are at risk for developing depression. Furthermore, depressed patients with high neuroticism and cytokine levels may require early escalations in the intensity of treatment, along with additional therapeutic elements to increase the rate of treatment success.

Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet may be an effective intervention or preventative means of reducing depression risk and symptoms. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  Clin Nutr. 2018 Nov 20. Epub 2018 Nov 20. PMID: 30502975 Abstract Title:  An anti-inflammatory diet as a potential intervention for depressive disorders: A systematic review and meta-analysis. Abstract:  BACKGROUND & AIMS: There is a large body of evidence which supports the role of inflammation in the pathophysiology of mental health disorders, including depression. Dietary patterns have been shown to modulate the inflammatory state, thus highlighting their potential as a therapeutic tool in disorders with an inflammatory basis. Here we conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis of current literature addressing whether there is a link between the inflammatory potential of a diet and risk of depression or depressive symptoms.METHODS: A systematic literature search was performed to identify studies that reported an association between the inflammatory potential of the diet and risk of depressive symptoms or diagnosis of depression. Random effect models were used to meta-analyse effect sizes. Quality assessment, publication bias, sensitivity and subgroup analyses were also performed.RESULTS: Eleven studies, with a total of 101,950 participants at baseline (age range: 16-72 years old), were eligible for review. A significant association between a pro-inflammatory diet and increased risk of depression diagnosis or symptoms was evident, relative to those on an anti-inflammatory diet (OR: 1.40, 95% confidence intervals: 1.21-1.62, P

Teen Bitcoin Millionaire: Bitcoin is Pretty Much Dead "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One of the youngest cryptocurrency success stories has a rather bleak outlook for the leading digital asset, Bitcoin. Erik Finman became a millionaire in his teens by investing money that his grandmother had gifted him, starting as early as 2011.

At the height of the Bitcoin bull market of 2017, Finmans stack was worth an impressive $4 million. There is no indication just how much much of this he still holds, however.

Erik Finman: Bitcoin and Litecoin Dying, Ether, BCH, and Zcash Show Promise

Erik Finman hit headlines this January for his remarkable story. Starting in 2011, the then 12-year-old was buying cryptocurrency with some money his grandmother had given to him. According to a report in Market Watch, by catching on to the technological innovation early, the teenager was able to turn just $1,000 into over $4 million.

Despite being the cause of his success, Finman is now of the opinion that Bitcoin is in trouble:

Bitcoin is dead, its too fragmented, theres tons of infighting I just dont think it will last It may have a bull market or two left in it, but long-term, its dead.

Interestingly enough, much of the infighting within Bitcoin has actually died down since the August hard fork last year, which created Bitcoin Cash. This is because many of those arguing for scaling by increasing the size of the blocks themselves left the community to support and use the offshoot currency, evangelised by Roger Ver and Craig Fake Satoshi Wright.

Bizarrely, the teenage investor believes that Bitcoin Cash is actually a better bet than the original Bitcoin. He told the publication that it had great technology but had been marketed terribly. It seems strange that Finman would critique Bitcoins infighting and be more optimistic about Bitcoin Cash when it was the latter that has just undergone a far...

PMID:  BMC Obes. 2018 ;5:32. Epub 2018 Dec 3. PMID: 30524737 Abstract Title:  Obesity moderates the complex relationships between inflammation, oxidative stress, sleep quality and depressive symptoms. Abstract:  Background: The relationship between obesity and depression is complex. This study assessed the impact of body mass index (BMI) on the link between BMI, inflammation, oxidative stress, sleep quality and self-reported depressive symptoms.Methods: We used data from the U.S. National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey 2005-2008 cycles (=9133; 20y). Depressive symptoms and sleep quality were determined from questionnaires. C-reactive Protein (CRP) was used as a biomarker of inflammation and -glutamyltransferase was used to assess oxidative stress. The relationship between depressive symptoms, sleep quality, and biomarkers were assessed with regression models. The moderating effects of BMI and sex were tested.Results: BMI was a significant moderator of the relationship between-glutamyltransferase and depressive symptoms (=0.02), but not CRP or sleep quality. Higher BMI increased odds of depressive symptoms in women (OR (95% CI): 3.92 (1.85-8.30) for BMI 25 to

People Can't Believe Who They Find Outside In Freezing Cold Tent "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When one border collie escaped the makeshift outdoor enclosure where she and 15 others were being kept, she started running, doing what she was trained to do.

These border collies had been bred to be working dogs who herd cattle. But when this dog tried to do that to a group of cows nearby, tragedy struck.

"Apparently she escaped from his makeshift enclosure and ran onto the neighbors cattle farm," Debbie Lazaro, president of East Coast Herding Dog Organization (ECHO) Rescue, told The Dodo. "The farmer shot her in order to protect his livestock ... [the cows] did sustain some unfortunate injuries."

Such a loss never would have happened if the 16 dogs had not been left in a backyard shed in Kansas after a backyard breeder decided to shut down his operation.

"He moved away from the property and the dogs were left behind," Lazaro said. "He visits approximately once a day to 'take care of them.'"

It was obvious to rescuers that the breeder's care couldn't be sufficient.

SAN FRANCISCO Lets begin by acknowledging what is, perhaps, only self-evident if youve done a fair amount of drugs: it is really challenging to produce anything, let alone something significant, while high. Though artists and musicians are among the niche professions within which open drug use, abuse, or addiction might not be instant grounds for dismissal, it is arguable that most highly creative drug-addicts are genius in spite of their addiction, not because of it. An interest in drugs, especially recreational or spiritual hallucinogens, is rarely accompanied by ambition or work ethic, in the conventional sense which is what makes DMT an interesting choice of muse for artist Joe Roberts.

#1 Most-read Study of 2018 in the Medical Journal Pediatrics is How a High-Fat Diet can Help Type 1 Diabetes "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Keto ketogenic diet with nutrition diagram low carb high fat healthy weight loss meal plan

by Paul Fassa
Health Impact News

A recent 2018 online survey of type 1 diabetics or their parents and caregivers has opened the door for others to use the ketogenic high-fat, low-carbohydrate, moderate protein diet to ease the burden of insulin injections and improve the day-to-day life of type 1 diabetics, potentially leading to remission.

This was a breakthrough study, as the ketogenic diet has proven itself with diabetes type 2 sufferers, but there has been little looked into with keto for diabetes 1 patients. This studys focus was on serious carb production. 

Its title is Management of Type 1 Diabetes With a Very LowCarbohydrate Diet, and it was published by Pediatrics, the official journal of the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics). 

Dr. Lewis First, chief editor of Pediatrics, provided an article listing the top 10 items published by Pediatrics during 2018.

This study was at the top of the list as the most popular article in Pediatrics for 2018.
