Four Major Fireballs within Ten Hours

It was a busy night for the AMS and IMO (International Meteor Organization) that started early around 16:50 Universal Time (UT) with a fireball in the skies over Germany. Over 1180 witnesses reported to the AMS/IMO database within the first few hours of the event. Les than five hours later, near the weastern shores of France witness reported another significant fireball at 21:30 UT.

While excited fireball observers in Germany, France, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg and Italy were filling out their forms, two significant fireballs fell over the United States during the hours of 01:40 and 03:30 UTC. The first over Arizona and the second over Ohio.

In total the AMS/IMO collected, grouped and analyzed over 1320 witness reports spanning these 4 fireballs in the 10 hours that followed the events.

Fireball 5: Incredible moment the night sky is lit up by a fireball from a falling meteor over Finnish Lapland

This is the incredible moment the night sky was lit up by a fireball from a falling meteor over Finnish Lapland.

Footage shows a bright light in the sky over Inari in Finland - but the flash was so intense it was also seen in Russia's Kola Peninsula and in northern Norway.

Stargazers reported seeing the sky 'light up like day' for a few seconds as the space rock plummeted towards Earth on November 16.

Same meteor as seen from Russia:

“Injecting Aluminum”: The Dangers of Aluminum as a Vaccine Adjuvant

Aluminum has been recognized as a neurotoxic ingredient by leading researchers and scientists across the globe. So why do babies in the U.S. receive up to 4,925 micrograms (mcg) of aluminum within the first 18 months, and an additional 170 to 625 mcg by the age of 6 through routine vaccinations?

What are the possible side effects of aluminum on the human body when injected? Aluminum has been used as a vaccine adjuvant (a substance that enhances the body’s immune response) since the 1920’s but has only been tested one time, on two rabbits. Their remains have since disappeared.

Over 100 Scientific Studies Agree: Cannabis Annihilates Cancer

Despite the onslaught of negative warnings about cannabis, most of which are likely linked to or generated by drug companies that stand to lose billions on dangerous cancer drugs should cannabis be recognized as an effective natural alternative, there are countless cannabis cancer studies proving the herb’s powerful anti-cancer properties.

VW to invest about $40 billion in electric cars

Volkswagen AG plans to invest around $40 billion over the next five years to develop electric vehicles, self-driving cars and Uber-like mobility app services in the clearest sign yet that auto makers are betting the future of their industry on the new technology.

Volkswagen's drive to produce electric cars and self-driving vehicles comes as the entire industry pivots from a century-old business model of building gas-powered cars for the family to producing fleets of electric cars that in just a few years are expected to drive themselves and be part of roaming robot taxi services.

US lifts ban on import of 'elephant trophies' from Zimbabwe

The US Fish and Wildlife Service under US President Donald Trump has decided to allow the remains of elephants hunted for sport in Zimbabwe to be imported into the United States, reversing a ban on such imports introduced in 2014.

Zimbabwe's elephants are listed as "threatened" under the US Endangered Species Act (ESA).

The service justified the change by saying the ban, imposed under former president Barack Obama, was based on limited information available at the time.

Why this Oregon teen is facing federal drug charges for a gram of pot

Devontre Thomas is likely facing federal charges because the alleged possession took place at the Chemawa Indian School, which is run by the federal Bureau of Indian Education.

Devontre Thomas, 19, recently graduated from Chemawa Indian School in Salem and is heading to college this fall. But first, he’ll have to take a trip to the federal courthouse in Portland to fight the charge, stemming from an incident in March 2015.

Still, many are calling it a federal overreach, given the minuscule amount of marijuana involved in Thomas’s case — enough for one or two typical joints.

Uncontacted People Still Being Massacred In Amazonia

Ten indigenous people – including women and children – were murdered in the Javari Valley region of the Amazon in September this year, according to reports. Their bodies were alleged to have been mutilated and dumped in a river. The attack was believed to have been carried out by gold miners, two of whom were later recorded bragging about it in a local bar.

Study: Cannabis Compounds Can Kill Cancer Cells

The study tested six cannabinoids, together and independently, on leukemia cells.

Study author Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London's St. George's medical school, told U.S. News the chemicals displayed "potent anti-cancer activity" and, significantly, "target and switch off" pathways that allow cancers to grow.

"There's quite a lot of cancers that should respond quite nicely to these cannabis agents," Liu said. "If you talk about a drug company that spent billions of pounds trying to develop these new drugs that target these pathways, cannabis does exactly the same thing – or certain elements of cannabis compounds do exactly the same thing – so you have something that is naturally produced which impacts the same pathways that these fantastic drugs that cost billions also work on."

Marijuana Kills Cancer Cells, Admits the U.S. National Cancer Institute

The big news here is not these studies. These and many more are contained on PubMed, the U.S. National Library of Medicine that is also part of the National Institutes of Health. They are there for all of the world to see.

The news is that after decades of the demonization of marijuana by a federal government that supports pharmaceuticals and GMOs, there is a breath of change. But if you want to prevent or treat cancer with marijuana, be prepared for arrest and imprisonment in most states of this union.

'I used cannabis oil to cure my cancer'

According to McQue, a side-effect of the illegality of cannabis and the social taboo associated with it, is that users often find it hard to share their experiences and tend to follow quite a lonely path. “I don't think it's illegal to share knowledge about cannabis oil and know that it's helping ordinary South Africans from all walks of life who are interested in trying it as an alternative to surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. That makes it worth the risk."

FLASHBACK - Cannabis a medical miracle - it's official

Until now claims of the benefits of the drug for certain conditions have been anecdotal. But the preliminary results of the UK government trial, started last year, suggest that 80 per cent of those taking part have derived more benefit from cannabis than from any other drug, with many describing it as 'miraculous'.

The results make it almost inevitable that the Government will bow to public pressure and legalise the cultivation of cannabis for medical purposes by 2002. Scientists now predict that cannabis - first used for medicinal reasons 5,000 years ago - will follow aspirin and penicillin and become a 'wonder drug' prescribed for a wide range of conditions.

US government says cannabis kills cancer cells

The US government has confirmed that cannabis can kill cancer cells after the drug did so in tests on mice and rats, according to the National Cancer Institute.

The development will provide further ammunition for pro-legalisation campaigners.

On its website The National Cancer Institute, part of the US department of health, said: "Laboratory and animal studies have shown that cannabinoids (the active ingredient in cannabis) may be able to kill cancer cells while protecting normal cells.

"They may inhibit tumour growth by causing cell death, blocking cell growth, and blocking the development of blood vessels needed by tumours to grow."

Cannabis destroys cancer cells

Scientists working in the UK have revealed that cannabis has the potential to destroy leukemia cells.

The team – based at Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry in London – have followed up on their previous findings that the main active ingredient in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) has the potential to be used effectively against some forms of cancer.

FDA, DEA LAUNCH MASSIVE ASSAULT ON KRATOM – DRUG WAR FOR MIRACLE PLANT RAMPING UP

To no one’s surprise, the U.S. government, after hysterically declaring a “national emergency” over America’s opioid crisis, is once again setting its sights on Kratom, the non-addictive natural plant that has helped thousands of Americans wean themselves off opioids. In 2015, the DEA announced its plans to place Kratom on the list of Controlled Substances (in the same scheduling level as heroin to be exact) but, amid public outcry, the agency backed off, deferring to FDA “review” and “advice.” Many optimistic Kratom activists were tempted to rest on their laurels, trusting that the FDA would prove to be more reasonable in relation to Kratom and hoping the testimonials, overwhelming public support for Kratom, and the science itself would win the day.

Plague spreads to dozens of health workers amid fears Madagascar CAN’T contain black death

A staggering 82 health workers have been struck down by the disease – about around four per cent of the total number of cases – according to latest figures from the World Health Organisation (WHO).

The news has added to fears Madagascar’s health system will be left unable to cope as the outbreak continues to claim more victims.

There are also fears the disease could develop a resistance to the antibiotics being used to treat victims, which would likely see the number of cases surge.

The World’s First Space Nation Now Has A Satellite Flying Above The Earth

On November 12, Asgardia cemented its presence in outer space by launching the Asgardia-1 satellite. The nation is slowing coming to fruition.

The “nanosat” is roughly the size of a loaf of bread and undertook a two-day journey from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the United States, to the International Space Station (ISS). It contains 0.5 TB of data belonging to 18,000 of Asgardia’s citizens, such as family photographs, as well as digital representations of the space nation’s flag, coat of arms, and constitution. While Asgardia’s citizens will remain based on earth, for the time being, the satellite launch brings the nation one step closer to space.
Asgardia-1 made its journey to the ISS aboard the OA-8 Antares-Cygnus, a NASA commercial cargo vehicle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I want to join, and become a citizen of Asgardia!

FDA Approves New Digital Sensor To Ensure "Patients With Mental Health Issues" Take Their Meds

It will “ensure” that patients who suffer from mental health issues take their medicine when they are told. But privacy concerns have not gone unnoticed.

Regulators in the United States have approved the first pill that can be digitally tracked as it makes its way through the human body. The Abilify MyCite aripiprazole tablets used for treating schizophrenia and manic episodes have an ingestible sensor embedded inside them that records that the medication has been taken. A patch worn by the patient transmits this information to their smartphone.

But many are raising the red flag that this could simply be another form of medical “big brother.” You may no longer have the right to refuse medications in the very near future.

The Abilify MyCite features a sensor the size of a grain of sand made of silicon, copper, and magnesium. An electrical signal is activated when the sensor comes into contact with stomach acid - the sensor then passes through the body naturally.

Financial Tyranny: ‘We the People’ Are the New Permanent Underclass in America

Americans can no longer afford to get sick and there’s a reason why.

That’s because a growing number of Americans are struggling to stretch their dollars far enough to pay their bills, get out of debt and ensure that if and when an illness arises, it doesn’t bankrupt them.

This is a reality that no amount of partisan political bickering can deny.

Many Americans can no longer afford health insurance, drug costs or hospital bills. They can’t afford to pay rising healthcare premiums, out-of-pocket deductibles and prescription drug bills.

They can’t afford to live, and now they can’t afford to get sick or die, either.

Psychiatrist: US Doesn't Need People 'Hearing Voices' Leading Troops Into Battle

Dr. Elspeth Ritchie, a former chief psychiatrist in the army explained why such a decision has been made and what the risks of it are.
Sputnik: What’s your general take on the reports? Is there any reason for concern or is it rather a victory for people who have had historical mental disorders?

This decision should win the award for one of the most brain-dead decisions ever made by the US military, but what it demonstrates is painfully telling; the US military is running out of qualified volunteers to become US service members.

Pfizer Vice President Blows the Whistle: Reveals Dark Truth About Pharmaceutical Industry

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines.

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Are Electric Cars As Clean As They Seem?

The whole process requires power, which more often than not is sourced from fossil fuels, not renewables or nuclear energy. This is similar to the issue electric-car charging stations face when evaluating the efficiency of their establishments in eliminating pollution from the environment. In most parts of the U.S., if the stations source their electricity from the grid, they’re just increasing demand for fossil fuels since coal, oil, and natural gas power the majority of the country anyway. Some states, like California, are obvious exceptions because of their heavy investments in green energy, but for the most part, the pattern holds.

Moreover, lithium batteries need proper facilities in order to be recycled once they reach the end of their lifespan. Tesla’s Gigafactory, which promises to produce the electric car manufacturer’s batteries in an environmentally conscious way, says it will lead a program to recycle the hardware responsibly.

Malawi is bracing itself for an outbreak of the plague after the deadly disease continues to spread across the island nation of Madagascar.
At least 143 people have died and more than 2,000 others have been infected in Madagascar since an outbreak in early August this year.

Yet Malawi's health secretary confirmed the country is ready for any reported cases of the disease amid mounting concerns of Africa's 'porous borders'.
Dr Dan Namarika, principal secretary in the ministry of health, said the country were working in conjunction with Mozambique to help best prepare for a possible outbreak.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Madagascar... is an island.

It would be a simple thing to close down the airport and the ports, to keep the contagion from spreading, yet this has not been not done by the government of Madagascar; why?!?

Encryption is Dead: China Performs Quantum Messaging Over Longer Distances

Quantum-encrypted data cannot be eavesdropped because a third party tampering with the communication channel causes a quantum message to change, and both the recipient and the sender will know that someone is attempting an intercept. Due to the nature of quantum physics, any observation using our large-scale instruments influences — and so alters — the object of observation, an effect known as the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

Monsanto’s monster-herbicide blamed for killing millions of crop acres

Agro-chemical giant Monsanto’s new version of an herbicide called dicamba is allegedly wiping out millions of acres of farmland across the US Midwest, according to farmers from 25 states litigating with the company and calling for stiffer rules.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the farmers have submitted more than 2,700 claims to state agricultural agencies that neighbors’ dicamba spraying destroyed 3.6 million acres of soybeans. About 900,000 acres of crops were reportedly damaged in Arkansas alone, more than in any other state. The herbicide is also blamed for destroying other crops, such as cantaloupe and pumpkins.

Since beginning her THC treatment, Bortell has been seizure-free for two and a half years. “As the seizures got worse, we had to move to Colorado to get cannabis because it's illegal in Texas,” Bortell said, KDVR reported.

While describing the difference between past treatment proposals and her current use of a THC liquid, Bortell said: “I'd say it’s a lot better than brain surgery.”

Ishi, last 'wild' Indian, found refuge in S.F.

For 4 1/2 years, a unique saga played out on San Francisco's Parnassus Avenue. On that lofty street at the base of Mount Sutro, overlooking Golden Gate Park, Marin and the Farallon Islands, the last "wild" Indian in North America, Ishi, spent his final years living in a museum where he was looked after, and befriended, by California's most eminent anthropologist.
There is no more extraordinary and poignant episode in the city's history.

BOMBSHELL science paper documents the depopulation chemical covertly spiked into vaccines

Just days after the release of a jaw-dropping video lecture called the Science Agenda to Exterminate Blacks, a bombshell science paper has emerged that confirms the use of covert sterilization chemicals in World Health Organization vaccines deployed in Africa. Entitled, “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World,” the paper documents the covert deployment of an infertility chemical in vaccines that are administered to young black women in Kenya:

Setting the Record Straight: The Beirut Barracks Bombing

The White House wants to blame Iran, but they're wrong. I was there.
By LAWRENCE KORB • November 9, 2017

The crucial turning point occurred in early September, when the U.S. began providing naval gunfire support for the U.S.-backed Lebanese Army—something that was opposed, as journalist Nir Rosen has pointed out, by the State Department, the CIA, and even Marine Commander Col. Timothy Geraghty.

In an article he wrote on the 25th anniversary of the attack on his marines, Geraghty recalled the situation:

NASA's New Plane Design Is a Simple, Brilliant Fuel-Saver

NASA's idea is pretty straightforward: place a large turbofan engine on the rear of a plane, where it will collect the slow-moving air traveling along the plane's body. This lets the wing-mounted turbofans be built smaller, which means less drag and a higher fuel efficiency.

That by itself would mean a minor improvement to fuel use, but NASA decided to go a step further. The engineers also added generators to the wing-mounted turbofans, and the electricity generated by these engines is used to power the tail-mounted one. This means that the rear turbofan that provides much of the plane's thrust doesn't require any fuel to operate.

Children are Being Educated in School to Obey the Government’s Vaccination Agenda

By Christina England, BA Hons

Children around the world are being taught in school from an early age to believe that vaccines are safe and effective as part of their education. Not only is there evidence to support this fact, but there is also evidence that many children are being regularly brainwashed to believe that if they do not receive their vaccinations, they could get ill and die from vaccine-preventable diseases.

The Learning Network, which works in conjunction with The New York Times, lays out a series of lesson plans for teachers in the US, including a lesson titled Fighting Disease: Researching the History and Biology of Vaccines. This lesson in particular should interest the many parents who are unaware that their children are being brainwashed to think in a particular way when they send them to school...

Special Report: The decisions behind Monsanto's weed-killer crisis

The resulting rash of illegal spraying that year damaged 42,000 acres of crops in Missouri, among the hardest hit areas, as well as swaths of crops in nine other states, according to an August 2016 advisory from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The damage this year has covered 3.6 million acres in 25 states, according to Kevin Bradley, a University of Missouri weed scientist who has tracked dicamba damage reports and produced estimates cited by the EPA.

How hospitals keep their patients sick by feeding them Ensure, a “junk food” nutrition shake

Once upon a time, long long ago, doctors used to take some time to educate their patients on how to maintain a healthy body and mind through nutrition and stress reduction. Unfortunately, a horrible and evil monster invaded the land (let’s call it Fraudzilla) and decided that this idea of nutrition was nonsense and the people’s ills were better managed through synthetic and toxic medications created in a lab. Since the lure of money was so promising, doctors took the bait and abandoned all common sense and logic with regards to helping patients overcome chronic health problems.

It was the beginning of the end for quality health care, as this method of medicine became ingrained in nearly all areas of the world. Doctors became busy pill pushers, and any semblance of nutrition advice went out the door, along with the patient’s chances of a solid recovery.

GM Food Crops Illegally Growing In India: The Criminal Plan To Change The Genetic Core Of The Nation’s Food System

The GM Contamination Register database is run by Genewatch and Greenpeace and contains cases of genetically modified (GM) contamination dating from 1997. The authors of a 2014 paper, published in the International Journal of Food Contamination, analysed 400 or so cases in the database by crop and country.

GM rice accounted for about a third of contamination cases, despite the fact there is officially no GM rice grown anywhere in the world. They also focused on cases of contamination arising from unauthorised GM crops: those without any authorisation for commercial growing anywhere in the world. Nine cases were discovered of GM contamination of these unauthorised (non-commercialised) GM crops that haven’t undergone any environmental or food safety analysis. The authors argue that once GM contamination has happened, it can be difficult to contain.

MONSANTO IN COURT AGAIN AS POWERFUL NEW HERBICIDE ACCIDENTLY KILLS 3.6 MILLION ACRES OF CROPS

Monsanto thought they had developed an amazing scheme to corner the Midwest farming market when they developed new genetically engineered seeds that were resistant to their new herbicide called dicamba. The resistance of Monsanto's new magical seed crops to dicamba meant that the herbicide could be sprayed liberally by farmers to eradicate weeds and boost yields.
Alas, as we pointed out last week (see: Meet Monsanto's Other Herbicide Problem...), a small problem emerged when spray drifts from those liberal herbicide applications began to wipe out the crops of neighboring farmers who didn't plant Monsanto's dicamba-resistant seeds.

Now, as the Wall Street Journal points out today, after allegedly wiping out millions of acres of farm ground across the Midwest, Monsanto once again finds itself in a familiar spot: the courtroom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This company is so morally vile that it should be sued out of existence, for all the damage its products have done globally.

UK will back EU ban on pesticides that have killed millions of bees, says Environment Secretary Michael Gove

The pesticides - known as neo-nicotinoids or 'neo-nics' - are meant to kill insects that eat crops.

They are used in sprays and coatings on seeds – killing sap-sucking weevils and aphids.

But Mr Gove said yesterday the risk to bees and other insects such as butterflies was 'greater than previously understood'.

The European Commission proposed a ban on three neonicotinoids on flowering crops such as oil seed rape in 2013 because of the threat to bee health.

The UK had opposed the ban, but other member states disagreed and the ban was implemented across the EU.

Now Mr Gove said he believed the evidence base had 'grown' and the UK will back a new proposal by the EC to extend the ban to non-flowering crops such as wheat and sugar beet as well.

Another "Impossible" Exoplanet | Space News - ThunderboltsProject


Recently, scientists reported in the monthly notices of the Royal Astronomical Society the discovery of a theory-shattering exoplanet -- one of countless such discoveries in the last two decades. As reported on phys.org on October 31, the hot Jupiter “should not exist according to planet formation theory.” In this episode, we outline the fundamental differences between the standard model of planet and star formation versus that of the Electric Universe.

BEX ALERT - No correlation between popular Monsanto pesticide and cancer ? study

A pesticide used by agribusiness giant Monsanto does not cause cancer, a new study states. The findings are likely to impact a legal battle that placed glyphosate, a key ingredient in the company’s popular weed killer, on a list of cancer-causing chemicals.

The study, published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute Thursday, found no correlation between glyphosate “and any solid tumors or lymphoid malignancies overall, including non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and its subtypes,” according to Reuters.

Researchers did find “some evidence of increased risk of acute myeloid leukemia among the highest exposed group” but said it was “not statistically significant.”
