    EBOLA: A record

    @breezy, that is very interesting that Bird Flu is flying Ebola (whoever suggested that, thanks!). The article I posted in #112 , mentioned bats and other forest creatures acting as reservoirs for the Ebola virus, so birds definitely fit into that category. Hmmmmm... *looks at the large flocks of birds outside my window*... Thanks also for the reminder on copper as I didn't remember the Entity had mentioned it.

    EBOLA: A record

    When I was studying microbiology at university, I was taught that Ebola came from "high up in the trees" and only started to infect humans when the trees were cut down. That statement made me shudder and hence always stuck with me, but I can't remember exactly who told me. I think it was the lecturer, but now I'm going back over a decade ago. The memory is good, but not that good! Anyway, I have come across an interesting article about the possible origin of Ebola. The opinion is that large pockets of deforestation in affected parts of Africa has exposed the virus to humans. The conspiracy side of me wonders whether the virus was planted there to protect the forest from total destruction. Maybe nature planted it, maybe the "ancients" planted it. Moral of the story though.. look after our forests, PLEASE! Ebola: The Origin of West Africa’s Deadly Epidemic Added by Andrew Waddell on July 14, 2014. Saved under Andrew Waddell, Ebola Virus, Health, Opinion, viruses Tags: ebola While the Ebola epidemic rages on throughout Western Africa, far beyond the borders of Guinea, the country in which it first began, a recent analysis of the disease’s emergence has revealed the geographic origin of the epidemic and the pathogen’s likely source. Research suggests that the Guinean strain of the Zaire Ebolavirus originated from a single group of patients living in the heavily forested town of Guéckédougou in the remote prefecture of Gueckedou. The town is a small governmental subdivision which borders both Liberia and Sierra Leone, two countries which also host significant portions of the forest that surrounds Guekedou.

  4. ...and it gets worse. They now want to weaken organic standards in Australia to allow for 0.9% GM-contamination. This is ludicrous and makes me wonder if the Steve Marsh case was a deliberate attempt at weakening the organic standards all along. Everyone who has an interest in protecting our natural food source, please put forward your opinion in the following survey, thank you: Your say: GM foods & crops What do you think? The Western Australian Agriculture Department wants the National Organic Standard to allow 0.9% of GM in organic foods. The threshold is currently zero!

    I wasn't lying about the change of details on Wikipedia. I realised I could search the archived copies of Wiki and here it is: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Klaus_Schmidt_(archaeologist)&oldid=617836628 Does it mean anything?

    Hi luk3, On the day I posted that notice, I couldn't find any information about Klaus Schmidt's cause of death. When I checked his Wikipedia page on 21st July, it said that he died on the 11th July (I wish I had taken a screen shot now - damn) and I just assumed Graham Hancock's info on FB was not correct. Now when I check the Wikipedia page, it says he died on the 20th July from a heart attack. I don't know what to make of this.
  11. Hey triton, There's definitely something strange going on with Windows Updates. It crashed my entire system (on 2 laptops, btw) 2 weeks ago and I've been fixing both ever since. Even after a clean install of Windows7, I've tried installing the updates 3 times over and it still continued to crash everything, making all the programs unusable. I've been warning my friends on facebook to be careful installing Windows Updates. During the last 2 weeks I've also received reports from friends that their computers and related peripherals have stopped working too. Not sure if it's related to the Updates though. These last couple of weeks have been taxing.

    Current Events from Around the World

    transients.info @ FaceBk posted this link up this morning: Could it be related to the solar-flare events? Unprecedented’: 13 aircraft mysteriously disappear from radars in heart of Europe Published time: June 12, 2014 21:13 A total of 13 aircraft suddenly vanished off radars for about 25 minutes on two occasions over Austria and neighboring countries, Austria's flight safety monitor said, calling for an EU probe into the “unprecedented” incidents. The flights vanished from air traffic controllers’ screens in Austria on June 5 and June 10 for 25 minutes each time, Marcus Pohanka of Austro Control – Austria’s flight safety organization – said Thursday. Air traffic control in neighboring regions of Germany and the Czech Republic also reported similar problems. Pohanka said the location, height, and identity of the 13 aircraft vanished over Austria both times, in what he called “unprecedented” incidents, AP reported. He added that some neighboring countries had experienced similar problems. The daily Kurier, based in Vienna, elaborated that similar problems were experienced by flight controllers in Munich and Karlsruhe in Germany and in Prague, Czech Republic. Poahanka declined to say which airlines and planes were involved, but suggested that some may have been passenger jets, which fly at high altitudes. The EU’s Eurocontrol and European Aviation Safety Agency will investigate the incidents. Poahanka stressed that at no time were any of the planes in danger, as extra air traffic controllers were immediately called to their posts and emergency measures were brought in, which included immediately establishing voice contact with the pilots and the widening of flight corridors. The Kurier cited an unnamed expert as saying that the problem was most likely to do with interference between the aircraft transponders and the ground. Link: http://on.rt.com/rk0sj6

    NSA warned to rein in surveillance

    Vodafone's Disclosure Report reveals global scale of mobile phone surveillanceBy North America correspondent Michael Vincent, wires Updated Sat 7 Jun 2014, 1:57pm AEST The world's second largest mobile phone company, Vodafone, says at least six unnamed governments can use its phone system to monitor customers whenever they want. The company's Disclosure Report says most governments need "legal notices" to access its networks, but there are six nations - which is says it cannot name for legal reasons - that have direct access. It says in those countries authorities have inserted their own equipment into the network or have diverted all data through government systems so they can permanently access customers' communications. "In a small number of countries the law dictates that specific agencies and authorities must have direct access to an operator's network, bypassing any form of operational control over lawful interception on the part of the operator," the company said. It added that in Albania, Egypt, Hungary, India, Malta, Qatar, Romania, South Africa and Turkey it could not disclose any information related to wiretapping or interception. Vodafone, which has 400 million customers in countries across Europe, Africa and Asia, said it had received requests in 29 countries. It noted that each country, agency and operator counts requests in different ways and so it is difficult to compare them. Read the report in full here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/228437624/Vodafone-Law-Enforcement-Disclosure-Report <snip> Access at the flick of a switch In the six unnamed countries, Vodafone said government agencies had used technology to enable themselves to listen to calls and determine where they were made. The director of human rights group Liberty, Shami Chakrabarti, says this is deeply disturbing. "For governments to access phone calls at the flick of a switch is unprecedented and terrifying," she said. "Snowden revealed the internet was already treated as fair game. "Bluster that 'all is well' is wearing pretty thin - our analogue laws need a digital overhaul." Western security services say they are fighting a silent war with extremists who are trying to kill their citizens and the head of Britain's MI5 Security Service has described Mr Snowden's revelations as a gift to terrorists. <snip> Link: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-06-07/vodafone-reveals-global-scale-of-telephone-surveillance/5507282
  15. Missing flight MH370: Families in bid to raise $5 million to find 'whistleblower' to help solve mystery Updated 2 hours 23 minutes ago Several families of those aboard flight MH370 have launched a drive to raise $5 million to reward any insider who comes forward and resolves the mystery of the plane's disappearance exactly three months ago. The "Reward MH370" campaign launches on fundraising website Indiegogo and aims to raise at least $5 million "to encourage a whistleblower to come forward with information", the families said in a press release. The Malaysia Airlines jet lost contact on March 8 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people aboard - about two-thirds of them Chinese. The Boeing 777 is believed to have crashed in the southern Indian Ocean, but an extensive search has turned up no sign of wreckage so far, leaving frustrated and anguished families of those aboard suspecting a cover-up. "We are convinced that somewhere, someone knows something, and we hope this reward will entice him or her to come forward," said Ethan Hunt, a technology company chief who is heading the reward project. Sarah Bajc, partner of American passenger Philip Wood, said a handful of families were behind the campaign to look at the unprecedented aviation mystery with "a fresh set of eyes". "Governments and agencies have given it their best shot but have failed to turn up a single shred of evidence, either because of a faulty approach or due to intentional misdirection by one or more individuals," she said in the release. <snip> Link: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-06-08/mh370-families-in-drive-to-raise-5m-to-find-whistleblower/5508704

    UMA/Cryptozoology thread

    I'm not sure which thread this belongs in, but have you guys heard about this yet? Godzilla? Huge shark eaten by mystery sea monster, according to scientists 6 HOURS AGO JUNE 08, 2014 2:48PM A Great White Shark is believed to have been eaten by a ‘sea monster’. Source: ThinkStock A HUGE 2.7-metre-long great white shark was eaten by an even bigger “mystery sea monster”, according to scientists. Researchers had tagged the healthy shark to track its movements as part of a study, but were shocked when the tracking device washed up on a beach in Australia four months later, just four kilometres away. Data captured on the device showed there was a rapid temperature rise along with a sudden, sharp 580-metres plunge. The researchers believe the data proves it was eaten by something much bigger, saying the temperatures recorded indicate it went inside another animal’s digestive system. The only theory they have so far was that it was gobbled up by a “colossal cannibal great white shark”. <snip> Link: http://www.news.com.au/technology/science/godzilla-huge-shark-eaten-by-mystery-sea-monster-according-to-scientists/story-fnjwkt0b-1226947396017
  17. Cells programmed back to embryonic state using acid bath may provide way to grow new organs 30 January 2014 Scientists say they have been able to use an acid bath to "shock" mature cells from mice back into a stem cell-like state. The discovery, reported in the journal Nature, could offer a simpler way to replace damaged cells or grow new organs for the sick or injured. Scientists from Japan and the US took skin and blood cells, let them multiply, then subjected them to stress "almost to the point of death", by exposing them to various events including trauma, low oxygen levels and acidic environments. One of these "stressful" situations involved bathing the cells in a weak acid solution for about 30 minutes. Within days, the scientists found that the cells had not only survived but had also recovered by naturally reverting into a state similar to that of an embryonic stem cell. <snip> Stem cells are the body's master cells and are able to differentiate into all other types of cells. Scientists say that by helping to regenerate tissue and potentially grow new organs, they could offer ways of tackling diseases for which there are currently only limited treatments. <snip> Dusko Ilic, a reader in stem cell science at Kings College London, said the Nature studies described "a major scientific discovery" and predicted their findings would open "a new era in stem cell biology". "Whether human cells would respond in a similar way to comparable environmental cues ... remains to be shown," he said. "But the really intriguing thing to discover will be the mechanism underlying how a low pH shock triggers reprogramming," he said. "And why does it not happen when we eat lemon or vinegar, or drink cola?"

  18. Posting this here too, as suggested by Acolyte KGB and aliens propel latest UFO interest December 12, 2013, 10:25 am Link: http://au.news.yahoo...t-ufo-interest/ Russia is riding a new wave of UFO interest after claims the former superpower has had alien insight for decades. Among recent reports in Russian media is a tale that a UFO crashed in Mother Russia in the Soviet heartland in 1969 and was recovered by Russian military. Thevoiceofrussia.com reports that an alien found with the foreign ship was given an autopsy. The landing and autopsy was filmed, the website reports. A new alien story has emerged from Russia, sparking speculation the former superpower may have inside information. Photo: Youtube "According to Pravda, the KGB has allegedly had a special unit designed to gather and monitor all pieces of information regarding mystical and unexplained phenomena reported inside and outside the Soviet Union," Voice of Russia reports. The Huffington Post compares the reported alien landing at Sverdlovsk in 1969 to that in Roswell in 1947. Both were claimed to have happened near military installations and both have long captivated a curious public. While making clear that "serious" UFO experts doubt the veracity of the Russian alien claims, the HuffPo asks a serious question. "If, indeed, this was all a staged hoax, why would The Voice of Russia - which currently broadcasts to 109 million listeners in 160 countries and is considered one of the top five radio broadcasters in the world - suddenly circulate this story again now?"

    (Australia) Record breaking rains hit Queensland's far northUpdated Sun 9 Feb 2014, 8:30am AEDT There has been record breaking rain on Queensland's western Cape York Peninsula. In the last seven days 1.2 metres of rain has been recorded in Kowanyama. The weather bureau says it is the highest monthly total since 1918. Senior forecaster Jonty Hall says the monsoon low is now dumping heavy rain around Karumba. "We should see those heavy falls shift from that western Peninsula area down into the Gulf country area," he said. "So areas from Karumba westwards through Burketown and the Northern Territory border could see that heavy rain fall developing in the next couple of days."

  21. Two dead and nine injured as train derails in France Posted Sun 9 Feb 2014, 12:14am AEDT Two people died and nine others were injured when a train derailed in the southern French Alps, firefighters said. The train was travelling from the coastal city of Nice to the town of Digne-les-Bains and came off the tracks after hitting a rock on the rails, they said. Emergency services rushed to the scene and a red alert, meaning "several victims", was issued. Firefighters from around the region were drafted in to help. A total of 110 firefighters and 32 vehicles were deployed, as well as two helicopters. One of the injured is in critical condition and eight others, including the driver, sustained lighter injuries, the fire service said. There were a total of 34 people on board at the time of the accident. Authorities encountered difficulties in reaching the accident due to heavy snow and an isolated location. In July, seven people were killed when a commuter train derailed near Paris. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-02-09/train-derails-in-france-killing-two/5247772

    (Australia) Drought sees New South Wales farmers helping one another, hay donations prove a psychological boost By Peter Lewis Updated Sat 8 Feb 2014, 2:51pm AEDT Drought affected graziers in the north-west of New South Wales are in for their biggest psychological boost in months this weekend. But rather than rain on the horizon, there is a convoy of trucks carrying hay donated by fellow farmers. The longer this drought drags on, the more imagination and ingenuity goes into random acts of kindness for the hardest hit rural communities. Many of those acts, such as a home cooked meal or a hamper of groceries, go virtually unnoticed. But this helping hand is hard to ignore. Eighteen semi-trailers with almost 500 tonnes of hay have been donated by farmers in the south for their long suffering counterparts in the state's north-west. It is the brainchild of Brendan Farrell, a wheat and sheep farmer from Burrumbuttock in southern NSW. "Someone's got to do something because at the moment, the suicide rate is so bad up through NSW and Queensland," he said. <snip> http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-02-08/drought-affected-nsw-farmers-get-psychological-boost/5247396

    Let's send heaps of good thoughts out to Steve Marsh, whose court case begins in Western Australia today. He is doing this for ALL organic growers. From: http://stevemarshbenefitfund.com.au/ Monday 10 February – Rally outside court * Meet from 8.30 am out side the Supreme Court (not old building) at 111 St Georges Terrace – bring a sign saying #iamstevemarsh You might not have heard of Steve Marsh yet but this man could lose everything to protect your right to eat GM-free food. Steve is an organic farmer from a farming community South of Perth in Kojonup, Western Australia. In 2010, the state government of Western Australia lifted the ban on GM canola, allowing for the commercial cultivation of this GM crop for the first time. As a result many farmers, including Marsh’s next door neighbour, began growing GM canola. Subsequently, Steve found GM canola plants spread over much of his farm, containing seed. 70% of Steve’s farm was contaminated and he lost his organic certification. This contamination has had a dramatic impact on Steve and his livelihood, while Monsanto, because of their no liability agreement signed with each GM farmer, are free of any responsibility yet gain all the profit. Instead of accepting this biotech invasion, Steve has decided to take a stand. As the only avenue available, Steve is taking his neighbour to court for compensation of loss and damages.This case is the first of its kind in Australia, where an organic farmer is proactively seeking compensation from a GM farmer when his rights have been violated by GM contamination. This is something that Steve does not want to do but he has no other option if he wants to stand up for his rights as well as ours. Respected food journalist for the Sydney Morning Herald, John Newton, says“ Steve Marsh is a hero” <snip> http://stevemarshbenefitfund.com.au/

    Yes I know the feeling! You're going quite in-depth here and I can't give you a decent response unless I dig out all the old chemistry, biochemistry and nutrition text books to converse with you properly. If you want to freak yourself out, look up food sources containing fluoride. You might not want to eat or drink ever again! Like kerbie said... everything in moderation! Oh, and make sure to have plenty of antioxidants... also found in green tea From wikiped: A paradox in metabolism is that, while the vast majority of complex life on Earth requires oxygen for its existence, oxygen is a highly reactive molecule that damages living organisms by producing reactive oxygen species.[13] Consequently, organisms contain a complex network of antioxidant metabolites and enzymes that work together to prevent oxidative damage to cellular components such as DNA, proteins and lipids.[1][14] In general, antioxidant systems either prevent these reactive species from being formed, or remove them before they can damage vital components of the cell. Some people spend years studying this stuff as there are so many connections to be made. The human body is remarkable (always remember that)... so best to enjoy life and not worry about the tiny details.
