Low-level radiation causes death and disease in wildlife near Fukushima

How can a nuclear reactor meltdown in Japan affect ecosystems, plant and animal life, and even insects on the other side of the world? What are we doing right now that could ultimately impact someone else's future on an entirely different continent? What are we doing... more

Fury over growing Ebola panic as cruise passengers reach Texas

President Barack Obama fumes at Ebola response as US nurse on Carnival cruise ship tests negative after vessel docks...

A visibly “seething” President Barack Obama has berated his own aides for bungled Ebola response.

The US lead gathered officials in the Cabinet room at the White House to tell them he was “not satisfied” with the handling of the crisis, adding: “It’s not tight.”

Most of his anger was directed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for being indecisive about the level of the threat, and failing to ensure staff at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas were trained well enough... more

10 Reasons Why I Would Recommend Putting a ‘No Milk Today’ Sign On Your Doorstep - Paul A Philips

 

To a certain extent, it is understandable why many people think that milk is good for them. ‘Mothers milk’ was indeed the first food that we ever received: the loving link and the road to our survival… I, like many can remember my Grandmother saying ‘How would you like a nice cup of milk?’ Again the association of milk with tender loving care. Many of us, such as myself can recall in infant schooldays that care of taxpayer’s money, the milk marketing boards were funded to give us free school milk. We were told that milk was good for you. This, no doubt planted the indoctrination into us for when we grew up…Milk drinking has been regarded as part of our culture.

 

The demand for milk is not what it used to be. The truth of the matter is that milk is not good for you.

 

Here are my ten reasons why... more 

US Has More Sanctions Against Russia Than Against Ebola

Paul Craig Roberts
RINF Alternative News

We have known since . . . well, when haven’t we known that our public officials are incompetent. Their incompetence is always expensive, but now it risks a worldwide ebola pandemic.

With so little known about a deadly disease, one would think that with ebola on the rampage in three west Africa countries, air flights to and from these countries would be halted.

When riots or kidnappings present dangers in foreign lands, the State Department issues a travel advisory and warns, and sometimes prevents, Americans from traveling to areas of danger. As the ebola danger goes beyond the person himself, one would think public officials would have halted traffic to and from west Africa. In fact, it is harder for a critic of the US government, especially if the critic is Muslim, to enter the US than for a person infected with ebola. Indeed, there are a number of Russians who cannot enter the US because of unilaterally imposed US sanctions. But there are no sanctions against ebola... more

World's First Biometric Credit Card Will Arrive in 2015: Pay with Your Fingerprint

The move to give everyone a global unique ID that can be verified across all human activity has been in the works for some time and the applications are pervasive.

The fear of identity theft and cyber-banking crime has been the latest sales pitch to encourage accepting identity tech such as 
vein scanners , facial recognition, voiceprints , iris scans - even tears -  as well as their attendant databases. There is an ongoing cooperative effort between global banks and corporations to ensure that there will be standardized, centralized entry into the consumer/Internet/banking matrix of the future.

Another data point to note in the evolution of biometric ID is that MasterCard is now partnering with a Norwegian company called Zwipe to introduce the first fully biometric credit card, which will dispense with a PIN and instead use a fingerprint sensor for verification.

The transition to a 
cashless society continues apace, while simultaneously incorporating an all-inclusive tracking database from which it will become very difficult to escape if one wishes to interact in any meaningful way with a modern-day economy. Apparently, this means even a simple trip to the corner store.

More Than a Third of Oakland’s Fast Food Workers Can’t Afford Food

‘There is a growing movement to raise the wages of fast food workers, with the rallying cry of $15 an hour. The protests come in the backdrop of a national push for a higher minimum wage, but are focused on one of America’s largest low-wage industries.

A new study of Oakland workers shows exactly how low the wages are in the fast food industry. Restaurant Opportunites Center United conducted a survey of 500 restaurant workers from August 2013 to July 2014 and found that 36 percent did not make enough money to buy food for themselves and their families, while more than half said they were eating free meals at their jobs only because they couldn’t afford to pay for their own food.’
