New Report Links Psychotropic Drugs and School/Mass Shootings "IndyWatch Feed Health"


The goal of this report is to help law enforcement, educators and policy makers to learn how psychotropic drugs are a hidden link to the prevalence of violence and suicide in the community. Facts, statistics, studies and expert opinion in the report show the medical concerns about the rise of senseless acts of violence coincident with the increase in psychotropic drug prescriptions and usage. Jan Eastgate, President CCHR International

CCHR campaign launched to educate law enforcement, policy makers and school officials about violence- and suicide-inducing drug risks

by CCHR International
The Mental Health Watchdog

The mental health watchdog group, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) International, is offering Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) and school officials a free copy of its compelling new report about a common denominator found in many mass shootings: psychotropic drugs.

The report, called Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence & Suicide: School Shootings & Other Acts of Senseless Violence, provides information on more than 30 studies that link antidepressants, antipsychotics, psychostimulants, mood stabilizers and sedative hypnotics to adverse effects that include hostility, mania, aggression, self-harm, suicide and homicidal thoughts.

The 64-page report details more than 60 examples of school and mass shootings, stabbings and senseless violent acts committed by those under the influence of psychotropic drugs or experiencing serious withdrawal from them.

Jan Eastgate, President of CCHR International, said,

The goal of this report is to help law enforcement, educators and policy makers to learn how psychotr...



Radiation and Our Children Why Countries Are Banning Wi-Fi And Cell Phones Around Schools And Daycares "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

In 2017, it was reported that approximately 68% of the U.S. population used a smartphone. These devices have become a staple in our society, allowing us to carry the world in the palm of our hands.  Recently, however, cell phones and Wi-Fi devices have created a great deal of controversy as scientists, researchers and healthcare professionals discuss the potential risks of radiofrequency (RF) energy, the type of radiation that is emitted by this technology.

In response to this research, the California Department of Public Health published new guidelines in 2017, amending their stance on the risks of these devices. These new guidelines stated that some laboratory experiments and human health studies have suggested the possibility that long-term, high use of cell phones may be linked to certain types of cancer and other health effects. Researchers caution that this radiation has been associated with brain cancer, lower sperm count, headaches, tumors of the acoustic nerve and salivary glands, and negative effects on learning, hearing, behavior, memory, and sleep. However, at this time the scientific community is divided, with some studies illustrating these risks, while others argue that the exposure from current technology isnt at a high enough level to cause these problems.

One researcher, Dr. Om Gandhi from the University of Utah, focused his studies on the impact of cell phone radiation on children, illustrating that a childs brain absorbs significantly more radiation than that of an adult. Comparing the brain scans of a 5-year-old, a 10-year-old and an adult following exposure to the RF-EMF radiation, his research is highly concerning.

Image from Dr. Om Gandhis studies shows the brain of a 5-year-old child on the left, a 10-year-old child in the middle and an adult brain on the right, showing the variation in the amount of radiation absorbed.


While Americans continue to debate the risks of RF-EMF radiation, a number of other countries have decided to take a more dramatic app...


What the Lunar-Celtic Animal Zodiac Says About You And Your Unique Personality "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

While many of us are aware of the traditional zodiac as accepted in North America, many arent aware that the Celts have long had their own zodiac. Their love of nature and the importance of the environment on their culture carry over into an interesting and different approach to understanding our innermost personalities.

While the full moon and the placement of the stars played a role, the Celts focused heavily on the connection they felt with the natural world and the animals that shared it with. Unlike in many other cultures, the Celts drew no hard line between the animal world and that of their own. They felt deeply connected and woven together in every decision that they made.

Why nutritional psychiatry is the future of mental health treatment "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Joyce Cavaye, The Open University

A lack of essential nutrients is known to contribute to the onset of poor mental health in people suffering from anxiety and depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and ADHD. Nutritional psychiatry is a growing discipline that focuses on the use of food and supplements to provide these essential nutrients as part of an integrated or alternative treatment for mental health disorders.

But nutritional approaches for these debilitating conditions are not widely accepted by mainstream medicine. Treatment options tend to be limited to official National Institute for Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines which recommend talking therapies and antidepressants.

Use of antidepressants

Antidepressant use has more than doubled in recent years. In England 64.7m prescriptions were issued for antidepressants in 2016 at a cost of 266.6m. This is an increase of 3.7m on the number of items prescribed in 2015 and...


Hackers Target Atlanta Government Computers, Bitcoin Ransom Demanded "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A group of hackers are demanding payment in Bitcoin to unlock computer systems they were able infiltrate in Atlanta. Yesterdays ransomware attack targeted computers in important government departments. Data stored on the affected systems has been digitally encrypted.

Another Case of Bitcoin Ransomware

The security breach was first reported via a statement by the city on Thursday morning. The following was later posted to Atlantas official Twitter account:

According to local news source 11 Alive, the hackers are demanding a ransom of $6,800 be paid for each affected computer system. A screen shot sent to the publication from an employee of the city shows that the entire cost will be $51,000. This is to be paid in Bitcoin. Andrew Green, a security expert and professor at Kennesaw State University, is reported to be analysing the document. If the hackers receive said bounty, they will apparently decrypt the data that has been compromised.

The mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, made an official announcement regarding the hacking yesterday afternoon. She stated in an impromptu press conference that the full gravity of the attack was unknown at present. She also offered a warning to anyone who had business or consumer relationships with city departments. She said:

We dont know the extent or if anyones personal data or bank accounts will be compromised All of us are subject to this attack.

Despite the extent of the security breach being unknown at present, Atlantas Chief Operating Officer, Richard Cox claimed that water, public safety, and airport operations were not affected. He continued:

City payroll has not been affected and we have not determined that City Hall will need to be closed on Friday.

There have been no further updates from government officials on the situation since.

My health is not the best and I've been toying with the idea of converting a metal grain bin into a one bedroom small house as a guest house or more accurately a caretaker's house where a younger healthier person or small family could live and I could pay them for farm work to offset rent and allow them space for a generous garden and even trade meat for veggies.

RyobiNation Dream Workshop TableSaw Cart "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

One of the biggest challenges of building is having a good workspace.  Building without a workspace is like cooking without a kitchen.  Now your workspace doesn't have to be super fancy or expensive - it's more about good organization and thoughtful tool placement.  The last thing you want to do is haul your saw out of storage everytime you build.  That would be like pulling your oven out of storage everytime you wanted to bake.

I had the great honor of helping design the RyobiNation Dream Workshop.

In the workshop, we found homes for all the heavy tools.  The mitersaw is on a cart that pulls out.  The storage bases are carts that pull out to support your boards on either side of the miter saw.

The tablesaw is also a heavy tool.  To make it more accessible, we mounted it on a cart with locking casters.

We matched the height of the tablesaw deck to the height of the same carts that support the miter saw (and also can be used as work tables)

So the workcarts can be used as infeed, outfeed, or side feeds for the table saw.  This is a big deal when using a tablesaw as it essentially increases the size of your deck.

You can see the tablesaw cart in action here -

And download the free plans on Ryobi Nation here.

Enjoy and do build if you share!

Vaccine Injury Payouts: Taxpayers on the Hook for over $3.8 Billion as Vaccine Makers Rake in Profits "IndyWatch Feed Health"



by the World Mercury Project Team

The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) that went into effect in 1988 stipulated that vaccine manufacturers cannot be held liable for injuries or deaths that occur from use of their vaccines which are recommended for every child in America by the Centers for Disease Control.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) or vaccine court created with this Act is not a court at all but actually a taxpayer funded government claims program that uses special masters, employees of Health and Human Services (HHS), rather than judges to make decisions on compensation to victims. The vaccine manufacturers are defended by taxpayer-funded, Department of Justice lawyers.

The petitioners on the other hand, while suffering from and paying for their or their childs injuries, become embroiled in a litigious system where cases, according to the U.S. Government Accounting Office, are known to drag on for years.

Vaccine makers are in a win-win position that no other industry in America enjoys. While profits go to vaccine companies, the monetary amounts awarded to the vaccine-injured from vaccine court are paid for by taxpayers.

As vaccine makers arent held accountable for unsafe products intended for children, theres no incentive for them to ensure the vaccines they manufacture are safe.

Verisart: Using Blockchain to Verify the Authenticity of Art "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

British contemporary artist Philip Colbert has long been considering creating his own catalog system to prove the authenticity of his expanding collection: enter Rob Norton, the founder of Verisart, a U.S.-based startup thats using blockchain to verify the authenticity of artwork.

As we know, blockchain creates an immutable record of every transaction whether it be art, labor and land, or cryptocurrencies. Widespread adoption of the technology could give a boost to the market for art online, which has yet to explode. Online sales currently account for only about 8%, or $5.4 billion, of the global art market, according to a report by UBS Group AG and Art Basel released this month.

Art is a currency in a way; at the end of the day when they come to auction, the provenance is a very important element of their value.

Trust, or lack of it, is at the core of the challenge, with potential buyers balking at the possibility of spending considerable sums on works whose authenticity cant be fully verified. In fact, according to Norton, the value of fake art sold is almost double the real thing.

When it comes to art, theres a higher hurdle of trust that you have to clear, you have to know that what youre buying is real, said Norton. Art is the second-largest unregulated market after illicit drugs and its significantly overshadowed by fraudulent activity. You can accelerate trust and liquidity by providing better standards for verifiable, global certification.


Verisart started in 2015 as a phone app that permitted artists to create their own systems of art verification. When that approach didnt take off as expected, the company built a web app working with Ahmed Elgammal, a computer science professor at Rutgers University.

We were a little bit early, we were figuring out where the market was, getting feedback from artists, and building a platform that people could use, Norton said. Now increasingly working with partners, those certificates can be customized.

Colberts certificates, for example, contain small reproductions of the piece itself called image hashes, along with all of the relevant information about its creation, ownership, and movement  such as whether it was part of an exhibition....

The NSA Worked to Track Down Bitcoin Users, Snowden Documents Reveal "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The NSA Worked to Track Down Bitcoin Users, Snowden Documents Reveal

By Sam Biddle

Internet paranoiacs drawn to bitcoin have long indulged fantasies of American spies subverting the booming, controversial digital currency. Increasingly popular among get-rich-quick speculators, bitcoin started out as a high-minded project to make financial transactions public and mathematically verifiable  while also offering discretion. Governments, with a vested interest in controlling how money moves, would, some of bitcoins fierce advocates believed, naturally try and thwart the coming techno-libertarian financial order.

It turns out the conspiracy theorists were onto something. Classified documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden show that the National Security Agency indeed worked urgently to target bitcoin users around the world and wielded at least one mysterious source of information to help track down senders and receivers of Bitcoins, according to a top-secret passage in an internal NSA report dating to March 2013. The data source appears to have leveraged the NSAs ability to harvest and analyze raw, global internet traffic while also exploiting an unnamed software program that purported to offer anonymity to users, according to other documents.

Although the agency was interested in surveilling some competing cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin is #1 priority, a March 15, 2013 internal NSA report stated.

The documents indicate that tracking down bitcoin users went well beyond closely examining bitcoins public transaction ledger, known as the Blockchain, where users are typically referred to through anonymous identifiers; the tracking may also have involved gathering intimate details of these users computers. The NSA collected some bitcoin users password information, internet activity, and a type of unique device identification number known as a MAC address, a March 29, 2013 NSA memo suggested. In the same document, analysts also discussed tracking internet users int...


Africa Is Splitting In Two, At An Alarmingly Fast Rate "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

It may take another 10 million years, but the African continent is not going to remain in one piece. It is being split apart, with the larger continent on one side and parts of Ethiopia and Somalia floating off on the other.

Modern-day Africa was the keystone of Gondwana, the aggregated mass of southern continents that co-existed for nearly 400m years.

That supercontinent has since split apart, creating the land masses we now recognize as South America, Australia, India, Madagascar, Antarctica and, of course, Africa. And now, a new study published in Nature Geosciences is shedding light on how Africa is breaking up as well.

For the greater part of the Phanerozoic Eon,  500m years ago up to the current era, the Gondwana continents shared a common history and were populated by the same plants and animals. These continents were also marked by a climatic history that indicates the changing paleogeographic position (location of the continents over time) of this enormous landmass roughly twice the size of modern Eurasia.

Things began to change approximately 180m years ago as the modern South Atlantic Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Indian Oceans began to form. One by one, Africas Gondwanan partners began drifting away.

The modern-day East African Rift, an active tectonic plate boundary and one of the geological wonders of the world is the site of the most recent of these separations, and provides a glimpse of how continents break apart. This is the focus of the current paper in Nature Geosciences by sedimentologist Eric Roberts of James Cook University and colleagues at several Australian and American institutions.

The first stages in the splintering of a stable continent are marked by an increase in surface elevation. Like the proverbial floating iceberg, which is 90% underwater, the elevation of continents obeys the principle of isostasy: less-dense materials float on top of denser materials. The elevation of continents reflects the thickness of their crust, which is composed of less-dense material than the mantle rocks below. Mountains are high because of their thick root, which is approximately twice as thick as for the average continent. Southern and eastern Africa are different, as they have an ordinary thickness of crust, and yet are...


Kevin and Avontes Law Signed into Law Today as Part of the Omnibus Spending Act of 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Health"

SafeMinds is excited to announce that Kevin and Avontes Law, which provides $2 million in funding for training law enforcement, schools, and other community organizations to prevent and address wandering in people with developmental disabilities and people with Alzheimers Disease, has passed both houses of Congress and was signed into law by President Trump. The legislation can be found on page 1937 of the Omnibus Spending Act of 2018.

Specifically, the bill provides funding to health care agencies, state and local law enforcement agencies, or public safety agencies and nonprofit organizations to assist in planning, designing, establishing, or operating locally-based, proactive programs to prevent wandering and locate missing individuals with developmental disabilities or forms of dementia who wander, including programs that:

  • Provide prevention and response information, including online training and referrals;
  • Deliver education and training to first responders, school personnel, clinicians, and the public to reduce the incidence of wandering; facilitate rescue and recovery of those who wander; and recognize, respond to, and appropriately interact with endangered missing individuals who wander;
  • Provide prevention and response training and emergency protocols for school staff, and families or guardians of individuals with developmental disabilities or dementia to reduce the risk of wandering by such individuals; and
  • Develop, operate, or enhance notification or communication systems for alerts, advisories, or dissemination of other information for recovery of missing individuals with developmental disabilities or dementia.

Health care agencies, public safety agencies, or state and law enforcement may also use the funding to design, establish, and operate locative tracking technology programs for children with developmental disabilities or people with forms of dementia who wander. To protect the privacy of those individuals using the locative devices:

  • The use of locative technology must be voluntary, non-permanent, and non-invasive.
  • Collection and retention of any data from the locative technology is solely for the purpose of preventing injury to or death of the individual with the device.
  • There must be a consideration of whether the use of the device is the least restrictive alternative for ensuring the safety of the individual who wanders.

This is a paid press release, which contains forward looking statements, and should be treated as advertising or promotional material. does not endorse nor support this product/service. is not responsible for or liable for any content, accuracy or quality within the press release.

BlokForge, one the nations largest suppliers of cryptocurrency mining hardware, is announcing the grand opening of its 2,000 sq. ft. retail location in Mesa, Arizona. The new store will carry over 20 product SKUs from the largest brands in the world such as Canaan Creative.

The U.S.-based retail location represents a physical presence and is the first to do so stateside. BlokForge will be offering sales, repair, and consulting, along with classes by the end of the year.

Despite being a relatively new entrant to the mining supply space, BlokForge is unique in that it originated as an import-export company with over 20 years of experience sourcing hardware from overseas manufacturers before segueing into cryptocurrency mining hardware. The U.S. based company has grown quickly, expanding to its current 100,000 sq ft. warehouse. Formerly the site of Sunkist Citrus Growers, it was acquired by BlokForges parent company in February of 2015 and redesigned by Arizona architect Debartolo Architects in an effort to preserve the historical significance of the building, while making it fully functional for the growing needs of the supplier.

Column: Its Poetry in Motion "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

I should begin by noting that I think everyone has the right to choose a spiritual path thats meaningful to them. Youd think that wouldnt be controversial but a couple of thousand years of history suggests otherwise. Second, let me say that Im not a physicist, but I have taught statistical mechanics; that would also be the semester I last said sure, Ill help.

So now we can backtrack a bit. Picture it: grad school, 1992. There was this lowly PhD student who was brilliantly good at statistics sitting in class deeply focused on an advanced lecture on fixed vs. random effects in regression models. He was effortlessly capable of seeing how statistical methods exposed all sorts of complicated and subtle relationships. I hated him.

I cant quite remember the reason but the lecture soon turned into a sort-of philosophy of science conversation. The ten students in the class came from a variety of disciplines. But basically, we broke down into two groups: those in the real sciences and those wasting their abilities in other areas. It was a manifestation of long-standing inferiority complex in academia: that the social sciences use the jargon of hard sciences to gain legitimacy.

We call it physics envy. It stems from physics essentially mathematicising itself since the discovery of calculus in the 17th century and gaining enormous predictive power. The success of physics from its embrace of mathematics is astonishing. The field not only made quick and substantial inroads toward understanding the relationships of forces and demonstrating causality, but it also in modern times has become so sophisticated as to predict events and even missing pieces of the known universe.  One such famous example is the theorized existence of an unknown particle- the Higgs boson- nearly 50 years before it was observed and discovered.

The issue is simple: social sciences consistently need to qualify their findings in order to precisely describe the limitations of their results. This has led to all sorts of other issues about replicable results as well as demographic and temporal dependencies. It even leads to bigger, more hypnotic words if you can imagine it. I think thats partly why coffee exists. But all of that qualification suggests that comparatively little science actually happened in a study.   And, not only are the findings less perfect, so is the field from which they came.

Social sciences are often accused of using the methods of science to build theories for additional empirical...


Oral administration of taheebo water extract prevents DSS-induced colitis in mice. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017 Sep 6 ;17(1):448. Epub 2017 Sep 6. PMID: 28877696 Abstract Title:  Oral administration of taheebo (Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb.) water extract prevents DSS-induced colitis in mice by up-regulating type II T helper immune responses. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) are chronic inflammatory disorders that are mediated by pathogenic Th1 and Th17 cells. Previous studies have demonstrated that taheebo water extract (TWE) derived from Tabebuia avellanedae Lorentz ex Griseb., as folk remedy, has been used to treat various inflammatory diseases. Although TWE has been previously shown to display anti-inflammatory activities, the in vivo effects of TWE on mucosal immune responses remain unclear.METHODS: We examined the anti-inflammatory effects of TWE on innate immune cells such as dendritic cells (DCs) and macrophages and also on the differentiation of T helper cells. Lastly, adopting a method for dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis, we investigated whether the oral administration of TWE can modulate mucosal inflammatory responses.RESULTS: We found that TWE could activate DCs to produce immunosuppressive IL10 and polarize macrophages toward an anti-inflammatory phenotype in the mesenteric lymph node (MLN). Such alterations in DCs and macrophages resulted in a significant increase in anti-inflammatory Th2 and Foxp3Treg cells and a dramatic decrease in pro-inflammatory Th1 and Th17 cells in the MLN. Upon induction of colitis with DSS treatment, TWE significantly reduced the clinical symptoms, including body weight loss and colonic tissue inflammation, by up-regulating type II T helper immune responses.CONCLUSIONS: Taken together, these data suggest that TWE is an excellent natural product with therapeutic effects to help improve inflammatory disorders such as colitis.

Removing the ability for piracy and allowing listeners to download music stored on the blockchain, paying for the music with cryptocurrency would be one of the paradigm shifts. It would also mean that the right people get paid.

This challenge of monetizing content is also prevalent in the broadcast content industry. Ethereum Blockchain with smart contracts makes for a perfect solution.

Pain Points for Content Creators

The industry has not changed in over 80 years. Today, it continues to be a largely offline and extensive process, involving multiple dis-jointed parties the creators, the owners, the distributors, the increasing array of formats (eg. mobile, free-to-air TV, cable, OTT, cinemas, etc) and then there is a global consumer base with differing interests and language preferences.

The whole ecosystem today is highly fragmented and content creators are challenged to optimally monetize their content. Compounding the monetization challenge is the fact that content creators also face extremely high costs of distribution. Because the value chain is a cumbersome process for content to reach end viewers; typically 30% to 40% of the value of the content is being lost to cost of distribution via third-party commissions and fees. Hosting a conference booth and meeting events with champagne in the South of France at the Cannes Film Festival is no cheap affair.

To give some context on the potential value of a piece of content, lets take well-known franchises like Game of Thrones or the F1 Series.   These projects can be sold in 193+ countries via free-to-air, cable, satellite and streaming mobile platforms, that is, it can potentially be sold 600 different ways once you factor language and territorial configurations.

An A list project can potentially earn millions of dollars via such a syndication, however, a lesser known title is lucky to be sold in 10 countries and monetized in 10 ways. Hence the potential to optimize the value of this content is at least 50 times more for the content creator if they can easily monetize their content across the various permutations.

The chief pain points of content sellers are:



Here It Comes: China About To Launch Tens Of Billions More In Tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

This morning the market has been on edge over, and traders are obsessed with just one question: how will China retaliate to Trumps trade war and tariffs further. After all, the initial response of a modest 15-25% tariff on $3 billion in 128, mostly agricultural, products, seemed laughably small and appeared to be more of a warning shot than a real response to Trumps $50BN in Section 301 tariffs.

One answer was revealed moments ago when as we reported that Chinas ambassador to the US Cui Tiankai did not rule out the possibility of scaling back purchases of Treasuries in response to Trumps tariffs.

We are looking at all options, he said, when asked whether China would consider reduced purchases of Treasuries. Thats why we believe any unilateral and protectionist move would hurt everybody, including the United States itself. It would certainly hurt the daily life of American middle-class people, and the American companies, and the financial markets.

But the more likely reaction is that China will simply escalate with a brute force tit-for-tat retaliation, and as Citi notes, the editor-in-chief of the state-controlled Chinese newspaper Global Times, Hu Xijin, confirmed precisely that when he tweeted: I learned that Chinese govt is determined to strike back.

More importantly, he explained the confusion over the disproportionate $3 billion response, noting that Fridays plan to impose $3b tariffs is simply to retaliate to tariffs on steel and aluminum products, i.e. a response to the previous, Section 232 round of tariffs, and has nothing to do with the latest round of $50 billion in Section 301 tariffs.

Instead, Hu warns that Chinas retaliation lists against the 301 investigation will target US products worth $ tens of billions. It is in...


Taheebo polyphenols attenuate free fatty acid-induced inflammation. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Front Nutr. 2017 ;4:63. Epub 2017 Dec 12. PMID: 29312947 Abstract Title:  Taheebo Polyphenols Attenuate Free Fatty Acid-Induced Inflammation in Murine and Human Macrophage Cell Lines As Inhibitor of Cyclooxygenase-2. Abstract:  Aim of study: Taheebo polyphenols (TP) are water extracts ofspp. (Bignoniaceae), taken from the inner bark of thetree, used extensively as folk medicine in Central and South America. Some anti-inflammatory drugs act by inhibiting both cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and COX-1 enzymes. COX-2 syntheses prostaglandin (PG) E, which is a species of endogenous pain-producing substance, whereas COX-1 acts as a house-keeping enzyme. Inhibiting both COX-1 and -2 simultaneously can have side effects such as gastrointestinal bleeding and renal dysfunction. Some polyphenols have been reported for its selective inhibiting activity toward COX-2 expression. Our study aimed to demonstrate the potential and mechanisms of TP as an anti-inflammation action without the side effects of COX-1 inhibition.Materials and methods: Free fatty acid-stimulated macrophage cell lines were employed to mimic macrophage behaviors during lifestyle-related diseases such as atherosclerosis and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis. Real-time polymerase chain reaction was used to detect expression of inflammatory cytokine mRNA. Griess assay was used to measure the production of nitric oxide (NO). ELISA was used to measure PG Eproduction. Molecular docking was adopted to analyze the interactions between compounds fromand COX-2.Results: TP significantly suppressed the production of NO production, blocked the mRNA expression of iNOS, and COX-2 in both cell lines, blocked the mRNA expression of TNF-, IL-1, IL-6, and PGEin the murine cell line. However, there was no inhibitory effect on COX-1. Molecular docking result indicated that the inhibitory effects of TP on COX-2 and PGEcould be attributed to acteoside, which is the main compound of TP that could bind to the catalytic zone of COX-2. After the interaction, catalytic ability of COX-2 is possibly inhibited, followed by which PGEproduction is attenuated. COX inhibitor screening assay showed TP as a selective inhibitor of COX-2 enzyme.Conclusion: The anti-inflammatory effects of TP can possibly regulate macrophages due to the targeted inhibition of COX-2 activity, without affecting COX-1 activity with other anti-inflammatory effects including suppression of iNOS and inflammatory cytokines. As such, TP is potentially useful in prevention and treatment of lifestyle-related disease by attenuating inflammation caused by macrophages infiltration.

The Hourly Wage Required to Rent a Two-Bedroom Home In Your State "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

With approximately 21% of Americans living off a household income below $25,000 annual, one has to question the reality of the American dream. As children, we are taught to go to school, get good grades, get a job and we can have anything that we set our hearts on.

Today, however, an alarming number of those who have acquired higher education are either unemployed or underemployed, struggling to get ahead. This makes it incredibly difficult to meet even our most basic of needs such as a roof over our heads and food on the table.

This financial struggle is felt by people across the country, however, the cost of living does not remain the same from state to state. In order to improve our chances of success, experts in the financial sector recommend researching the cost of living in the areas that you are considering prior to making any major moves in order to ensure that your income will be sufficient in that area.

Collecting the necessary information to determine the housing costs in all 50 states, the National Low Income Housing Coalition calculated just how much one would have to earn hourly in order to keep up with these costs. They created a clear visual demonstration of how this cost varies across the country by plotting the information on a map. With required hourly wages ranging from $13.26 to $34.22, it is easy to see how significant the impact of a fluctuating housing market can have on the chances of success for Americans of all ages.

Curious to see how your home state stacks up? Here is the complete list of hourly wages required to rent a two-bedroom home in each state:

10 Strange Things Most People Dont Know About Death "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Whilst everyone accepts the fact that one day theyre going to die, no one really seems to talk about it. In the Western world, death is something that we fear, probably because were afraid of pain and unsure of what will happen after this life.

Will there be fluffy clouds and some pearly white gates or will it be like youre back in your mothers womb? You exist but youre unaware of your existence and youre surrounded by a calming darkness for all eternity. Society in general tries everything to delay the inevitability of death. Sadly, we all have that one day in our lives when the party is finally over, but at least you can affectionately haunt those you love or hate, without hesitation.

Youre More Likely To Get Killed By A Coconut Than A Shark.

Youre more likely to get killed by a coconut falling from a tree than you are from a shark attack. Although sharks are fearsome predators, they dont hunt humans because they think that we taste exotic and if anything, we are more dangerous to sharks than they are to us. For a shark to kill as many humans as we kill sharks in an hour, it would take them 916 years Sharks kill around twelve humans a year and its usually due to them mistaking us for seals as opposed to thinking that were a tasty treat. Humans kill over 11,000 sharks in an hour.

Some People Turn Into Soap When They Die.

Adipocere is the transformation of your body fat into a wax-like substance and this occurs in environments where there is little or no oxygen with levels of high moisture. This process occurs within a month after death and corpses of women, infants or overweight people are more prone to it because they have more body fat. The body is covered in wax and you look like a big bar of soap.

Your Hair Doesnt Keep Growing, But You Can Still Get An Erection.

But not in a way that youd like obviously because youre dead. Within three days of your death, the enzymes in your body that used to help you eat your dinner will begin to eat you. These enzymes attack your body and ruptured cells become a food source for the living bacteria in your gut. Muscles will still contract due to calcium ions which makes it possible for men to have an erect penis after death and can even ejaculate. Your body will still swell up and bloat for a few days after death due to autolysis, however, due to popular belief, your fingernails and toenails do not continue to grow after you die. The skin around them dries up and contracts, making your nails look longer.

Left Handed People Die Younger.

Staff Picks: Strip Clubs, Lightning Rods, and Extramarital Affairs "IndyWatch Feed Literature"


On WednesdayAnne Boyer received a 2018 Whiting Award for poetry and nonfiction. On the same day, shut in by the storm, with only my apartments clanging radiators for company, I dove into A Handbook of Disappointed Fate, Boyers forthcoming book of essays from Ugly Duckling Presse. From the first paragraph of the first essay, simply titled No, I was thoroughly captivated by Boyers language. Her prose is lyric and smooth. There is nothing labored about her discourse, which is conversational but incisive and often accompanied by a satisfying dose of arch humor. Two examples of Boyers particular genius are Click-Bait Thanatos and The Harm. The former is speculative and considers the eerie technological landscape left behind in a world no longer populated by humans; the latter is a meditation on trauma and how it occupies a persons consciousness and daily life. Boyers essays are best experienced alongside one another; I suggest doing so in the thick of a snowstorm, but I suspect their impact would be equally forceful in any weather. Lauren Kane

Researcher Makes Controversial Allegation of Archaeological Fraud at Renowned Turkish Site "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

No one wants to be fooled by a fake, but everyone loves hearing about those who are.

Recently, in an interview with LiveScience, Swiss geoarchaeologist Eberhard Zngger alleged that the prominent British archaeologist James Mellaart forged artifacts from the famous site atalhyk, as well as numerous documents supposedly translated from Luwian, a written and spoken language in ancient Turkey.

Zngger claimed that, in a note found after his death, Mellaart encouraged colleagues to publish these translations and artifacts after his death and said that anyone following through with Mellaarts request was being duped and perpetrating archaeological fraud. I feel abused, Zngger told LiveScience. He said that Mellaart had no scruples when it came to harming other peoples careers.

These accusations are difficult to evaluate. Mellaart died in 2012, and Zngger, whose allegations have not appeared in a peer-reviewed scientific journal, is cited as the only source in the story.



How the Shape of Your Face Reveals Secrets About Your Personality "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

It is surprising just how much you can tell from looking at someones face. One of the best-known forms of non-verbal communication, your facial expression can reveal your thoughts, emotions, and reactions to any given situation. From the movement of your eyebrows to the look in your eyes, the way that you smile to how you scrunch up your nose, there are a large number of subtle clues that can, in most cases, tell you more than the words that you are speaking.

Psychologists say that the face may be hiding even more secrets. The shape of your face has been associated with a number of specific traits including information about your health, your intelligence and the traits of your personality. In her book The Wisdom of Your Face, Jean Haner discussed the most common face shapes and what they may reveal about you, drawing on data from her study of a face reading technique that was first discussed 3000 years ago by Chinese medical practitioners.

Haner warns that most people dont have one specific face shape, but rather a combination of different shapes and characteristics. In order to use this technique, you must first determine which of the options are closest to your own. One trick to discover your face shape is to stand in front of a mirror with a tube of lipstick and draw the shape you believe best fits your face. If you are unsure which is most accurate, try a couple and see which best fits.

Once you have determined your face shape, read on to discover what it reveals:

Japans FSA Warns Binance to Comply with Licensing Requirements

Japans top securities regulator has issued a formal warning to cryptocurrency exchange Binance that it needs to comply with licensing requirements in order to continue operations.

The news, which the Financial Services Agency (FSA) published in a statement on Friday, March 23, 2018, confirms earlier rumors reported by news outlet Nikkei that an FSA warning was forthcoming, given the exchange was already operating in the country without a license.

Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao initially took to Twitter to deny those rumors, accusing Nikkei of irresponsible journalism. He stated Binance was in communication with the FSA. It does not make sense for JFSA to tell a newspaper before telling us, while we have an active dialog going on with them.

But after the FSA warning became public, he tweeted, We received a simple letter from JFSA about an hour ago. Our lawyers called JFSA immediately, and will find a solution. In an attempt to quell customer concerns, he later tweeted, No need to worry. Some negative news often turn out to be positive in the long term.

Yahoo! Japan to Launch Cryptocurrency Exchange in 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Yahoo! Japan Corporation, a subsidiary of Yahoo! and SoftBank Group, is entering the cryptocurrency industry by launching an exchange in April 2019, according to Nikkei Asian Review.

Yahoo! Japan Acquires 40% of BitARG to Launch Exchange in 2019

In order to open a cryptocurrency exchange, Yahoo! Japan will start off by acquiring 40 percent of BitARG Exchange Tokyo, an FSA-approved exchange operating in Japan. The Financial Services Agency (FSA) was already notified about the investment plan.
Bit Arg Exchange Tokyo is one of the 16 cryptocurrency exchanges in Japan with an FSA license, issued in early December 2017. There are 16 other operators with pending licenses.
A full year after the acquisition of Bit ARG Exchange Tokyo next month, in April 2019, Yahoo! Japan plans to launch its own exchange, newly built but based on BitARGs system.
Yahoo! Japan will buy the BitARG shares, corresponding to 40 percent of capital, through Tokyos YJFX, a retail foreign exchange broker founded in 2003 and wholly owned by Yahoo! Japan Corporation.
The financial services firm will pay approximately 2 billion yen ($19 million) for the 40 percent stake in BitARG, made up of outstanding shares and newly issued stock. From April 2018 onwards, a number of YJFX executives and engineers will focus on the development of the new exchange system at the headquarters of BitARG.
The team will also be preparing the corporate governance structure as well as a customer management system, and internal controls.

Another Yahoo! Japan Corporation company will be in charge of additional investments to be made from January to March 2019 in preparation for the launch of the exchange in April 2019.

The market has been jittery as the Japanese financial watchdog, Financial Services Agency, is increasingly demanding after having failed to prevent the Coincheck hack in January 2018.

Now, the importance of registration with the FSA has become paramount. Yesterdays mini-crash on rumors that the FSA would order major exchange Binance to stop operations while awaiting a license is an example of the nervousness in the market.

Zhao Changpeng, founder of Binance, addressed yesterday what he called irresponsible journalism as the company immediately called the FSA to find a solution afte......

Ravencoin (RVN) Interest Keeps Growing Stronger "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

RavenCoin (RVN) seems to have appeared out of nowhere for many people and there are still quite a lot of miners that are not aware of this potentially interesting crypto coin. Ravencoin is being described as a use case specific blockchain designed to carry statements of truth about who owns what asset and there is still a low unknown about the project. The interest in RVN however keeps growing and more people are getting interested in it and are starting to mine it and as a result the network is growing. You can keep track of how things move on on the useful Ravencoin Statistics website and how the network is progressing over time. The recent announcement that the Ravencoin roadmap and accompanying paper will be published on April 3 have further helped to increase the interest as currently there is just a short White Paper regarding the new X16r algorithm used by the coin.

Up until recently Ravencoin (RVN) was not traded on any exchange and was moved only as OTC sales and that is one of the reasons why the coin remained widely unknown for a while after its initial launch. Recently the decentralized exchange Crypto Bridge has added trading of RVN and that has helped move things further and help miners get more interest as they could easily sell coins.

Africa Is Splitting In Two, At An Alarmingly Fast Rate "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

It may take another 10 million years, but the African continent is not going to remain in one piece. It is being split apart, with the larger continent on one side and parts of Ethiopia and Somalia floating off on the other.

Modern-day Africa was the keystone of Gondwana, the aggregated mass of southern continents that co-existed for nearly 400m years.

That supercontinent has since split apart, creating the land masses we now recognize as South America, Australia, India, Madagascar, Antarctica and, of course, Africa. And now, a new study published in Nature Geosciences is shedding light on how Africa is breaking up as well.

For the greater part of the Phanerozoic Eon,  500m years ago up to the current era, the Gondwana continents shared a common history and were populated by the same plants and animals. These continents were also marked by a climatic history that indicates the changing paleogeographic position (location of the continents over time) of this enormous landmass roughly twice the size of modern Eurasia.

Things began to change approximately 180m years ago as the modern South Atlantic Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Indian Oceans began to form. One by one, Africas Gondwanan partners began drifting away.

The modern-day East African Rift, an active tectonic plate boundary and one of the geological wonders of the world is the site of the most recent of these separations, and provides a glimpse of how continents break apart. This is the focus of the current paper in Nature Geosciences by sedimentologist Eric Roberts of James Cook University and colleagues at several Australian and American institutions.

The first stages in the splintering of a stable continent are marked by an increase in surface elevation. Like the proverbial floating iceberg, which is 90% underwater, the elevation of continents obeys the principle of isostasy: less-dense materials float on top of denser materials. The elevation of continents reflects the thickness of their crust, which is composed of less-dense material than the mantle rocks below. Mountains are high because of their thick root, which is approximately twice as thick as for the average continent. Southern and eastern Africa are different, as they have an ordinary thickness of crust, and yet are elevated by more than 1km above the average continent.



Shocking Discovery in The World of Bitcoin Could Cause Serious Problems In the Future "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A more recent discovery could mean some very negative things for Bitcoin itself and certain users of the bitcoin network. While this may be a bit confusing if you keep going it will all make sense.

For those who may not know, Bitcoin is a form of cryptocurrency that uses people who volunteer to use their computers to maintain the network, those who do this could be facing some backlash for liability depending on the content they possess. While those who merely own bitcoin and do not participate in the network will not be directly affected, it is important to be aware of this. Researchers have analyzed about 1,600 files on bitcoins blockchain and some of those files (a few hundred) depicted links to child pornography websites.

These findings come from researchers at the Aachen University and Goethe University Frankfurt. They presented these just about a month ago at the international conference on financial cryptography in Curacao. Now, depending on how you look at this it does seem to make being involved in this the same as possessing and distributing images of child abuse.

The team wrote as follows in their paper:

Our analysis shows that certain content, eg. illegal pornography, can render the mere possession of a blockchain illegal,

Since all blockchain data is downloaded and persistently stored by users, they are liable for any objectionable content added to the blockchain by others. Consequently, it would be illegal to participate in a blockchain-based [system] as soon as it contains illegal content.

While this wont completely ruin the system itself it is something that needs to be regulated in some form. While this is not something people are making a big deal out of now it will most likely be gone over time and time again in the future. It has been said that creating new blockchain designs could address this issue and prevent files of those kinds from being spread but at the moment we will have to wait and see where things go.

Christian Catalini, a professor and founder of MITs Cryptoeconomics Lab told WashingtonPost that these findings do not present a major problem at this time and that it is relatively hard for people to use it to post offensive content at the moment.

Experts Reveal the Truth Behind the Yellowstone Supervolcanos Imminent Threat "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

If youre worried a supervolcano lying beneath Yellowstone National Park could erupt and plunge the planet into a volcanic winter, then you may need to hear this.

While a future eruption, a prospect widely reported over the last year, is possible, geologists say its incredibly unlikely. The odds that Yellowstones sleeping supervolcano will erupt within a century and cause massive devastation is one in 10,000, which is about as likely as a very large asteroid hitting Earth, according to Jacob Lowenstern, a research geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).

Its not impossible to rule out, but its a remote possibility, said Lowenstern, who used to run the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, which monitors volcanic activity.

Supervolcanoes have the power to spew more than 1,000 cubic kilometers of debris and hot ash into the air when they erupt, which would have catastrophic consequences, including changes to global climate and agricultural devastation, according to the USGS. They get labeled supervolcanoes only after theyve already erupted to that magnitude. There are between five and 10 active supervolcanoes in the world, Lowenstern said. The most recent supereruption happened about 27,000 years ago in New Zealand. Long before that, there were two supereruptions at Yellowstone the first happened 2.1 million years ago and the second occurred 631,000 years ago, according to the USGS.

Many Americans grew concerned that a supereruption was looming after the New YorkTimes detailed a project from a research team at Arizona State University. The team researched the events leading up to the last large eruption at Yellowstone. They found changes in the supervolcanos system known to help trigger supereruptions, like magma flow, can develop faster than previously thought, according to the Times. Its shocking how little time is required to take a volcanic system from being quiet and sitting there to the edge of an eruption, Hannah Shamloo, an ASU graduate student who was part of the research team.

While media outlets frequently raise the specter of an apocalyptic supereruption from the Yellowstone caldera, and while the region has indeed produced massive Earth-altering events in the past, scientists remain convinced, based...

Shyama Golden + Weekend Inspiration "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

When I was writing about People of Craft, a platform that acts as a central hub for people of color across all creative fields, I got lost for hours discovering new artists. And one of those artists who completely stopped me in my tracks was Shyama Golden, a Brooklyn-based illustrator/artist. Shyamas background in oil painting is evident in the deeply saturated forms she creates whether theyre plant life, portraits or patterns but her graphic design prowess shines brightly in her ability to manipulate these renderings through working digitally on an iPad Pro.

Pickles like pickles are supposed to be "IndyWatch Feed Food"

In the Wheat Belly (and now Undoctored) lifestyles, we include plentiful quantities of fermented foods such as fermented vegetables, kimchi, kombucha, yogurts, and kefirs. This is part of our effort to seed and maintain our colons with the various Lactobacillus, Bifidobacteria, Leuconostoc and other bacterial species, as well as fungal species such as Saccharomyces (kefir, kombucha). This is one of the strategies we follow to reverse the harm done to our bowel health and flora by grains, sugars, and other modern intestinal insults.

While lactate fermentation is really a very simple process to accomplish in your kitchen, it is still nice to be able to purchase some fermented foods for convenience. While I ferment tons of yogurt (to specifically cultivate L. reuteri, for instance, for oxytocin augmentation that thereby yields extravagant skin, bone, and hormonal health), I also purchase some fermented products.

The majority of pickles sold in supermarkets, including most other Kosher pickles, are not fermented, but simply pickled in brine and vinegar. They are therefore essentially sterile and provide no Lactobacillus or other healthy probiotic organisms.

Bubbies lactate-fermented Kosher dill pickles are therefore worth knowing about. Bubbies pickles are fermented. You can see immediately that the brine is thick and murky, representing the dense probiotic organisms floating around. Here is a jar after agitating, sitting in my kitchen window:

In addition to the organisms, they are fermented with their (secret and proprietary) mix of herbs and spices that yields a very tasty end-product. You will pay a premium (I paid $6.99 for a...


Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Protect your IRA with Bitcoin - Click Here! Good morning, Im still reporting on: Gen Flynn Returns to Battle, 2108 Synopsis: The last time I was working in the Pentagon, Gen. Mike Flynn was the most respected name in military intelligence. Thats why I was pretty surprised when he was taken down so quickly by deep state operatives before President Trumps inauguration. Gen. Flynn was forced to take a plea deal to keep an out-of-control special counsel operation from bankrupting his entire family. Now that the Washington legal community understands the flawed basis for anything based on the illegal FISA warrants, Flynns sentencing has been put off and you can be sure to add indefinitely to that because more than likely, that conviction will be vacated by the government on some Friday afternoon where some huge sex scandal breaks out inside the beltway. As head of the DIA from July 2012 to his retirement in Aug. 2014, Flynn knows the complete history of every loser swamp dweller inside the Justice Department and FBI. Unlike this crooked, self-serving, power-mad cadre of the CCC, Flynn spent his life in selfless service to his nation. Unlike the swamp dwellers, he is willing to give his life for his country. And also unlike these denizens of the Satanic deep, Gen. Flynn lead an exemplary life without stain until their framing experts stepped in. Now, however, Flynn is once again unchained. Late last week he made his first public appearance to endorse California congressional candidate Omar Navarro in La Quinta, California. This can only mean one thing; Flynn is returning to the fight and on the front lines. Target #1: Deep State. As one close friend told the True Pundit: He knows where many political bodies are buried in D.C. and what does he have to lose? Nothing. The Mueller prosecution of Flynn has bankrupted the General. After 33 years of selfless military service, he has been forced to sell his house to pay his legal bills. Yes, he will eventually get it all back and more after the lawsuits are over, but at what age? He doesnt really care.

Trumps NAFTA Renegotiation Seeks To Empower Toxic Food Industry "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

After three decades of disastrous Free Trade policies that have seen American jobs shipped out the door, Mexican sweat shops pop up all across the country, and the loss of biodiversity and diversity of the food supply in Mexico, NAFTA is finally being looked at once again. With that second look, a tangled web of interests and perspectives has arisen that are difficult for the average American to unravel, especially given the fact that their media has done nothing but lie to them in regards to the effects of NAFTA on their own economy.

Corporate America and the financial sector are and have always been in favor of the agreement due to the fact that they are able to take advantage of cheap labor and weaker worker and environmental protections in order to maximize profits. Likewise, major international corporations like Monsanto have been able to move into Mexico and Canada, destroying the biodiversity and health of the people living there.

In addition, a host of wealthy oligarchical ideologues who wish to see one planet united under the banner of trade have long seen the NAFTA de...


7 Magical Uses For Crystals That Most People Arent Aware Of "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Crystals hold special powers all on their own. They can be used for healing and lots of other things whether you want to believe it or not.

The more I delve into the world of crystals and their abilities the more intrigued I become. In more recent times I have been working with several different kinds of crystals and the energies radiating off of them are all different. Each crystal truly does carry its own story.

Below you will find interesting things I have learned about crystals throughout my journey with them thus far. These are things I did not know and things I feel most people are not as aware of as they should be. Did you know any of these things or is this also new to you?



7 Magical Things About Crystals Most People Arent Aware of:

1. Crystals are attracted to different people and places.

When we go to buy crystals people will often say let the crystal pick you or which crystal speaks to you? This is because crystals are literally attracted to different people. Sometimes you will be drawn to one specific crystal because it is literally calling out to you.

2. Crystals benefit us emotionally.

Different crystals are for different things but most are able to benefit us on an emotional level. They work through bringing comfort and yet energy cleansing to us all. If you have ever worked with crystals you know exactly what I am talking about.

3. Crystals can change color.

When a crystal changes color or becomes cloudy it means it has gone through a great energy change. It has interacted with you in a manner that has caused a visual difference within the stone itself. This is both a good and bad thing depending on the energy it has absorbed.

4. Crystals connect with our energies and vibrations.

The more you get to know your crystals the more they will connect with you. They are sort of like little minds that are able to learn from us in that way as we learn from them. I know this sounds odd but if you are someone with any kind of experience using crystals you know what I am talking about.

5. Each crystal resonates with at least one chakra.

This means that the frequency it emits matches that of at least one chakra. Depending on which chakra you wish to work with the...


Were taking steps to protect against future interference in our political conversation by state-sponsored propaganda campaigns "IndyWatch Feed Arts"


Hi Tumblr,

Were all grappling with the influence that state-sponsored disinformation campaigns can have on our political conversationsand how wide-spread that interference turned out to be. So please take a moment to read this, think about it, and talk about it.

Last fall, we uncovered 84 Tumblr accounts linked to the Russian government through the Internet Research Agency, or IRA. These accounts were being used as part of a disinformation campaign leading up to the 2016 U.S. election. After uncovering the activity, we notified law enforcement, terminated the accounts, and deleted their original posts. Behind the scenes, we worked with the Department of Justice, and the information we provided helped indict 13 people who worked for the IRA.

Now that the investigations are done, we want to let you know how were going to help protect Tumblr in the future and what you can do to help.

Heres what we know about these accounts

The IRA employs more than 1,000 people who engage in electronic disinformation and propaganda campaigns around the world using phony social media accounts. Their goal is to sow division and discontent in the countries they target. What makes them so difficult to spot is that theyre not spambots. Theyre real people who get trained and paid to spread propaganda.

As far as we can tell, the IRA-linked accounts were only focused on spreading disinformation in the U.S., and they only posted organic content. We didnt find any indication that they ran ads.

Remember, the IRA and other state-sponsored disinformation campaigns play off our zero-sum politics. They want to drive a wedge between us so that we spend our time fighting with each other instead of building towards the future. Well be watching for signs of future activity, but the best defense is knowing how they operate and how to judge the content you see.

What were doing in response to the interference

First, well be emailing anyone who liked, reblogged, replied to, or followed an IRA-linked account with the list of usernames they engaged with.

Second, were going to start keeping a public record of user...

Your hidden talent is your dedication. While you may be a bit flighty, you do follow through with most things. You are far more dedicated to your cause than the other signs are to th...

How to Survive the Mercury and Jupiter Retrogrades Taking Place at the Same Time "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

The month of March 2018 is one of great energy. During this time, we will experience 2 full moons, each impact the thoughts, feelings, and emotions of those around us. Furthermore, the month will also include not one, but two different planetary retrograde movements. On March 8th Jupiter will move into retrograde, while Mercury will do the same on March 22nd.

Jupiter retrograde will bring a time of personal growth and self-reflection, providing us with the insight required to re-examine our morals and values. This energy will challenge our views of ourselves, pushing us out of our comfort zones in order to force us to evolve and grow as an individual. Be warned This type of change is never easy. Its going to bring you discomfort and pain, however, for those that are able to capitalize on this time, the personal growth you will experience will be profound.

Source: Astro Butterfly


Meanwhile, the coming Mercury Retrograde is recognized as a time of chaos, confusion, and miscommunication. Efforts to share what we are thinking or feeling will fall short as we struggle to find the right words. With the March 2018 Mercury Retrograde occurring in Aries, these minor miscommunications and misunderstandings will be blown out of proportion, bringing anger, rage, jealousy, and frustration. You will find yourself speaking before you think, an impulsive decision that will likely get you into a great deal of trouble!

From March 22nd, when Mercury enters retrograde until it concludes on April 15th, both Jupiter and Mercury will be in retrograde at the same time, their combined energy o...

Brazil Only Has One Jackson Pollock on Public View, and Now Its Being Sold "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Jackson Pollock, No. 16 (1950) (image via Google Arts & Culture)

The Museum of Modern Art (MAM) in Rio de Janeiro announced on Sunday that it is selling the only Jackson Pollock painting currently on public view in Brazil. The museum expects the work, N 16 (1950), to sell for around $25 million, which would help the museum sustain itself for at least 30 years. This will be the first time a museum in Brazil has deaccessioned an artwork to pay off debt.

MAM currently has a deficit of 1.5 million reais (roughly $454,170), and because its a private institution, it does not receive any governmental assistance. According to the museums communications department, maintenance costs $1.8 million a year, more than the museums 2017 revenue of $1.2 million.

We hope the buyer will be Brazilian, and that they will keep the work at MAM or at another museum in the country, said MAM President Carlos Alberto Chateaubriand of the Pollock, which was donated to the museum by Nelson Rockefeller in 1954. However, given the high price of the painting, collectors are skeptical that a Brazilian buyer or museum will acquire it. If no Brazilian museums are interested, then MAM will approach auction houses such as Sothebys, Christies, and Phillips.

MAM says it chose to sell the painting because, for one thing, Pollock is not a Brazilian artist. The...


Breaching the Public Trust Facebook is the Beginning "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Facebook will not recover from this.  In fact, weve likely reached peak free social media in general. The blockchain, like Steemit, is our way forward. This has been brewing for months as the Left and the power-broker class go through the various stages of Post-Election Stress Disorder.

They have increasingly outed themselves as the insectoid monsters weve always known them to be. But, again, we put up with it because we thought their being private companies would give us some control over their worst impulses.

Boy, were we wrong.

What started as a great thing to bring people together to communicate in an increasingly fragmented society has turned into an evil, Orwellian monstrosity feeding the power fantasies of the worst people on Wall St. and K Street.

Spike Lee to Teach an Online Course on Filmmaking; Get Ready By Watching His List of 95 Essential Films "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

When Spike Lee makes a movie, people talk about it. People talked in 1986 when he made the black-and-white indie comedy She's Gotta Have It; they talked even more when he came out with Do the Right Thing a few years later; they talked, with sharply divided opinion, about his most recent picture, the crime-themed musical Chi-Raq; and they're already talking about his upcoming Black Klansman, and not just because of the title. Lee has managed to remain culturally and artistically relevant throughout a career of more than thirty years and counting, and his new online course at Masterclass just might let us in on how he's done it.

"When you're an independent filmmaker, and making films outside Hollywood, that's hard," says the long Brooklyn-based Lee in the trailer for the course above. "You have to pray on bended knee at the church of cinema." But even as an aspiring auteur with a pocket-change budget Lee remembers well when he "was a caterer, the producer, the director, the screenwriter, acted in it, and I was the first AD" on his first feature  you already possess "tools that can help you tell a story": heightening dynamic camerawork to heighten the emotions, for instance, or writing characters with strong beliefs to intensify the conflicts of the story. He used such techniques when he started out, and he still uses them today.

How to Recognize Good Light in Street Photography "IndyWatch Feed Photography"

Heres an 11-minute video from photographer Sean Tucker that looks at how you can identify good light in street photography.

As part of a series of videos, Tucker shows how he exposes and composes an image based on the light that is afforded to him. Living in London, UK, Tucker explains that there is plenty of steel and glass in the streets around him. This casts light in various forms and shapes around throughout the day, offering a variety of different textures and patterns.

Tucker explains his thought process when looking at a particular scene, showing exactly what hes looking for before pressing the shutter.

Interestingly, Tucker uses a smartphone app to process his images rather than a more traditional workflow that involves a desktop computer. Ultimately, the image comes out as a contrasty black and white scene.

If there isnt really much to do with the color that adds [to the image], then Ill go black and white, says Tucker.

ICAN is excited to announce Alicea Acevedo as our newest Chapter Leader!

I have very strong feelings about providers giving out incomplete and misleading information. Women can make their own decisions but should have correct and complete information. ~ Alicea Acevedo, ICAN of Tallahassee

Please introduce yourself to ICAN:

I am married with two daughters, 3 and 5. We own a restaurant and I do all the administrative/accounting work from home for it while my husband runs it there day to day. I have a BA in Communications from the University of South Florida. I love to read and would do it all day if I could! I am a huge Buffalo Bills fan and I enjoy attending concerts.

How do you share ICAN as an organization with others?

Mainly that it exists and that we should not be considered controversial in any way. There is nothing controversial about education, advocacy, and support.

Coxsackievirus B4-contaminated drinking water or treated sewage may play a role as a causative agent of T1D in children. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Food Environ Virol. 2018 Mar ;10(1):89-98. Epub 2017 Oct 11. PMID: 29022248 Abstract Title:  Coxsackievirus B4 as a Causative Agent of Diabetes Mellitus Type 1: Is There a Role of Inefficiently Treated Drinking Water and Sewage in Virus Spreading? Abstract:  This study proposed to detect the enterovirus (EV) infection in children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1D) and to assess the role of insufficiently treated water and sewage as sources of viral spreading. Three hundred and eighty-two serum specimens of children with T1D, one hundred serum specimens of children who did not suffer from T1D as control, and forty-eight water and sewage samples were screened for EV RNA using nested RT-PCR. The number of genome copies and infectious units of EVs in raw and treated sewage and water samples were investigated using real-time (RT)-PCR and plaque assay, respectively. T1D markers [Fasting blood glucose (FBG), HbA1c, and C-peptide], in addition to anti-Coxsackie A&B viruses (CVs A&B) IgG, were measured in control, T1D-negative EV (T1D-EV), and T1D-positive EV (T1D-EV) children specimens. The prevalence of EV genome was significantly higher in diabetic children (26.2%, 100 out of 382) than the control children (0%, 0 out of 100). FBG and HbA1c in T1D-EVand T1D-EVchildren specimens were significantly higher than those in the control group, while c-peptide in T1D-EVand T1D-EVchildren specimens was significantly lower than that in the control (n = 100; p

A New Center in the Mile-High City Elevates Womens Contributions to Colorado History "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Opening ceremony at the Center for Colorado Womens History with Director Jillian Allison (all photos courtesy the Center for Colorado Womens History unless otherwise noted)

DENVER A historic Italian-style home in Denver, Colorado will house a new center celebrating women who have contributed to the states past and present. The Center for Colorado Womens History, which opened on March 21, is a helpful response to visitor demand for untold stories of local women. Already, it has demonstrated an agile and unconventional strategy driven by outreach and public collaboration.

The Center for Colorado Womens History, located within the Byers-Evans House Museum, is in the cultural and historic heart of Denver. Nestled among the Clyfford Still Museum, Denver Art Museum, and Denver Public Library, the building was constructed in 1883 by William N. Byers, who was the founder and editor of Denvers first newspaper, the Rocky Mountain News. Six years later, the home was purchased by William Evans, the son of territorial governor John Evans.

John Evans spurred growth in the state by spearheading Colorados first railroad, and his daughter Ann Evans became a powerful force in Denvers arts and cultural space. She was a member of the Artists Club, which eventually became the Denver Art Museum. In the late 1920s, Ann Evans established the Denver Artists Guild and was a founding member of the Central City Opera, as well as the first woman president of the Denver Public Library. Denver will become, through the use of its fine schools, its art museum and the Red Rocks Amphitheater and the Central City Opera House, the cultural center of the entire region, she said.

SDG 6: Clean water and sanitation an amazing opportunity for India "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Sustainable Development Goal 6, Clean water and sanitation is at the very core of sustainable development, critical to the survival of people and the planet. The issues of health and wellness are closely related to adequate water supply and functional sanitation systems. This Goal addresses not only the issues related to drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene but also the quality and sustainability of water resources worldwide.

India having one-sixth of the worlds population, place equal access to essential health, clean water, and sanitation services in top priority. In October 2014 Swachh Bharat Abhiyan (Clean India Mission) was launched by the Prime Minister of India under the Flagship scheme of the Government of India.

Clean drinking water

76% Indian habitations have full coverage, i.e. these habitations get more than 40 liters per capita per day. However, some habitations in India have water quality issues and the two most critical water quality issues are arsenic and fluoride contaminations. Piped water supply coverage in India is over 50% and in public spots. The objective is to have piped water supply in 90% of habitations by 2022 including 80% household coverage. Today household connections are only 15% so it is an ambitious target to attain. Major issues which confront here are groundwater and source sustainability.

Steps which can be taken to conserve water and to be able to meet future demands:

  • Lifeline plus drinking water as a concept needs to be incorporated to create sustainable drinking water. Smart cities need to have this principle embedded in their very conceptualization.
  • Water Education, i.e. an integrated water management approach in education.
  • Creating data and interlinking dataset from different government departments is essential if the SDG goals need to be attained.
  • Managing water demand i.e. rationalization and prioritization of net water demanded.
  • Promoting water audit and incentivize water conservation.

Hygiene and Sanitation:  Sanitation no longer lacks political determination. Sanitation has been an integral part of the Prime Ministers election campaign and addresses to the nation. While working towards the sanitation-related targets, it is important to focus on not only numbers but usage. Sanitation is important, why?

  • An account estimates that sanitation saves about 200000 lives a year of chi...


Pro-War Hawk John Bolton Takes Over As US National Security Adviser "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Is the US president lining up a war cabinet?

Donald Trump is replacing national security adviser HR McMaster with the hawkish former Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton in the latest administration shake-up.

The move, which is fueling alarm, comes just days after installing a former CIA chief as the new secretary of state.

Bolton rose to prominence under George W Bush and was a very vocal supporter of the US invasion of Iraq.

He is militantly hostile to Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, and Syria, among other nations on his target list.

RT reports: On Thursday afternoon Donald Trump decided to sack Gen. HR McMaster from his national security adviser post, replacing him with John Bolton. The former US envoy to the United Nations will assume office on April 9 just days after Mike Pompeo is set to replace Rex Tillerson as the new secretary of state.

Topical application of Nigella sativa had beneficial effects on acute radiation-induced nasal mucositis. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  J Craniofac Surg. 2018 Jan 19. Epub 2018 Jan 19. PMID: 29381633 Abstract Title:  Evaluation of the Effect of Topical Application of Nigella sativa on Acute Radiation-Induced Nasal Mucositis. Abstract:  The goal of this study was to demonstrate the effect of radiotherapy (RT) on nasal mucosa in rats and to evaluate the radioprotective effects of the topical application of black seed oil (Nigella sativa [NS]) to treat acute radiation-induced nasal mucositis.A total of 18 rats were randomized into 3 groups, with 6 animals per group. The rats in group 1 were topically administered saline in the nasal cavity after sham irradiation. Group 2 received saline at the same dose after irradiation. Group 3 was given NS after irradiation. The rats in groups 2 and 3 were irradiated with a single dose of 40 Gy to the nasal and paranasal area. Only one drop of saline (0.05 mL) was applied to each nostril in the first, second, and third days after RT in groups 1 and 2. One drop of cold press NS (0.05 mL) was applied to each nostril in group 3. Fourteen days after irradiation, the nasal mucosal tissues were excised for histopathological evaluation. Vascular dilatation, inflammatory cell infiltration, superficial erosion, and formation of exudates were classified according to the severity.No evidence of mucositis was observed in group 1. Of all the parameters the only statistically significant difference between groups 2 and 3 were observed for"superficial erosion' (P

Supercharge your workflow with profiles and arrangements "IndyWatch Feed Education"

If youve ever had to manage multiple projects, keeping up with the command line can be cumbersome. Here are a couple of hot tips on how juggle multiple projects that will save you a ton of time.

If youre using the regular Mac Terminal, I highly recommend switching over to iTerm2 (its just better). More on why in a bit.

SSH Aliases

Sometimes, you need to SSH into a server somewhere. Sometimes you have twenty different servers youd like to SSH into. Remembering where they live and what theyre called can be a pain.

To save time, create aliases for each server in under a minute. Heres how:

// Open a terminal window
nano ~/.ssh/config
// Fill in the following to create an alias
Identity file ~/.ssh/
//Exit and save the file
ctrl + x
// Now instead of doing this to connect
ssh -i "" @
// You can do this
ssh name-you-assigned

iTerm2 Profiles and Arrangements

Profiles are great and have changed my daily workflow. Sometimes your terminal looks like this:

Which one did I want again? 

The problem is, you dont know which window you want to click. You also dont want to close out windows, because then youll have to open a new window, navigate back to the correct directory, and remember the copy pasta to make it go.

With profiles and window arrangements, you dont have to worry about any of that.

Theres a quick video walk through below if you get lost on any of these steps.

A profile enables you to open a new command line window in a certain directory and run commands automatically. Lets make one!

First, close all open command line windows in iTerm, and start with a new command line window. Next, youll want to navigate to Profiles in the Menubar and click Open Profiles

You should see something like this

Now click Edit Profiles which should bring you here:

Gamebyrd and Mongod are some profiles I made so dont worry if you dont see them

Neuroprotective effect of gold nanoparticles composites in Parkinson's disease model. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Nanomedicine. 2018 Feb 21. Epub 2018 Feb 21. PMID: 29474924 Abstract Title:  Neuroprotective effect of gold nanoparticles composites in Parkinson's disease model. Abstract:  Parkinson's disease (PD) is second most common neurodegenerative disorder worldwide. Although drugs and surgery can relieve the symptoms of PD, these therapies are incapable of fundamentally treating the disease. For PD patients, over-expression of-synuclein (SNCA) leads to the death of dopaminergic neurons. This process can be prevented by suppressing SNCA over-expression through RNA interference. Here, we successfully synthesized gold nanoparticles (GNP) composites (CTS@GNP-pDNA-NGF) via the combination of electrostatic adsorption and photochemical immobilization, which could load plasmid DNA (pDNA) and target specific cell types. GNP was transfected into cells via endocytosis to inhibiting the apoptosis of PC12 cells and dopaminergic neurons. Simultaneously, GNP composites are also used in PD models in vivo, and it can successfullycross the blood-brain barrier by contents of GNP in the mice brain. In general, all the works demonstrated that GNP composites have good therapeutic effects for PD models in vitro and in vivo.

Its Official: US Is Seeking Death Penalty In Drug Cases But Not For Big Pharma "IndyWatch Feed Health"

It's Official: US Is Seeking Death Penalty In Drug Cases - But Not For Big Pharma

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

When Donald Trump suggested imposing the death penalty in drug-related cases, many people thought he was just spouting off at the mouth. Unfortunately, his statements were not just typical Trump talk. They are now official Justice Department policy.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions instructed Federal Prosecutors on March 21 to begin seeking the death penalty in drug-related cases where it is appropriate.

Sessions and his Justice Department are claiming that the policy is being implemented to counter the opioid epidemic. Sessions mandate comes after Donald Trump called for executing opioid dealers and traffickers and for harsher sentences in regards to trafficking.


The Link between Vaccines and Autoimmune Disease "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By the World Mercury Project Team

Autoimmune diseases have become increasingly common in the United States and other high-income countries over the past several decades and now affect an estimated 5%-10% of the population in those countries. The broad category of autoimmune disease comprises over 100 different rheumatic, endocrinological, gastrointestinal and neurological conditions that ensue when the bodys immune responses get misdirected against itself. Researchers generally agree that environmental factors (including drugs and chemicals) are strongly to blame for the rise in autoimmune disorders, possibly in conjunction with genetic and epigenetic influencesand studies dating back to the mid-1990s indicate that vaccines, with their unique configuration of viral or bacterial antigens and adjuvants, are a biologically plausible trigger.

The pathogenic hallmark of autoimmune disease is the production of proteins called autoantibodies, whereby the immune system mistakenly attacks the bodys own organs, tissues and cells instead of fighting external pathogens. Vaccines can prompt autoantibody production through a mechanism called molecular mimicry. As explained by Isra...


Tonkotsu Ramen "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Tonkotsu Ramen
Ramen seems to be pretty popular in restaurants these days, which is good since I always enjoy a nice bowl of ramen! The other day while I was happily slurping up a bowl of pork ramen I realized that it was about time to share my favourite ramen recipe! Tonkotsu ramen takes a bit of work to make but it's well worth it! It all starts out with tonkotsu ramen broth, chashu pork belly, and ajitsuke tamago (ramen eggs) which can all be made ahead of time so that you can throw the finished bowl of ramen together in almost no time. You simply need to heat the broth, cook the noodles and add your favourite ramen toppings an you are in ramen heaven in less than 20 minutes. I like simple toppings for my ramen adding mushrooms and green onions to the broth, noodles, sliced pork and egg and of course some spicy shichi-mi tgarashi (chili pepper spice blend) finishes it off perfectly! The next time you have a ramen craving think about making your own!

Worlds Biggest Final Fantasy Fan Almost Completed Some of the Games "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

ATHENS, Ga. Final Fantasy fanatic Patrick Danielson is widely considered to be the worlds biggest fan of the extremely popular franchise; he created & moderates the fan-site ChocoboRanch.Net, owns every Final Fantasy collectible every produced, and has even played a few of the video games to near completion.

See here is my full-calf Fenrir tattoo, over there is the homemade Vivi costume that I wore to DragonCon last year, and up on the wall is a life-size functional Orichalcum blade, Danielson said during a tour of his home, a shrine to Final Fantasy. Oh, and on the floor over there is a copy of Final Fantasy XIV for the PS3 that I really hope to get around to playing someday.

Read More From Hard Drive, The Only Ethical Gaming Journalism Site on The Internet:

Danielson has seen every Final Fantasy movie and mini-series made and even traveled to Japan to ride the Final Fantasy virtual reality roller coaster. He also bought Final Fantasy III on Steam and actually played it all the way to The Floating Continent.

I didnt believe he was really a fan at first, said friend Ben Wolff. But then he showed me his last save point in Final Fantasy VII, just before the last Joho battle and I knew he was the real deal. We are talking almost disc three!

Danielson even purchased a PSP just to play Final Fantasy Type-0 as well as the accompanying manga and novel adaptations. In 2016, he waited outside a Best Buy to purchase a copy of Final Fantasy XV where he logged an impressive fifty hours of gameplay for a total of 44% of game completion.

Before & After: A 1926 Michigan Home Gets A Modern Refresh "IndyWatch Feed Diy"

Jenna Cook and Brandon Curry are a couple that know what they want and will make the efforts to make it happen. Theyre also not afraid, or unfamiliar, with living in a construction zone on the road to restoration and renovations. Brandon is a realtor for Sothebys and Jenna is pursuing her degree to become an elementary school teacher. Jenna and Brandon moved into their 1,800-square-foot, 1926 house in Ferndale, MI  with their beloved cat, Richard, in tow the day it closed just over a year ago. Since then, theyve been working on modernizing their nearly 100-year-old home while also highlighting its traditional charm, and are now just nearly done.

Last on the list is turning their basement into a home theater, craft room, and laundry room. Once the basement is wrapped up, theyll finish the house by remodeling the upstairs bathroom. With the exception of the flooring and installing new windows, theyve done nearly all of the interior work themselves. However, its not all work and no play for this couple in their downtime (when hes not soaking in epsom salts to recover from a strenuous house project) Brandon can be found fixing up his vintage Land Rovers, or serenading Jenna with songs and interpretive dance as his heart inspires him. Jenna loves interior design, baking, traveling, and reading the last of which makes their charming little library all the more perfect.

The act of creating a home together, and living through the process of their renovations, has brought Brandon and Jenna closer and given them a deeper respect for one another. Follow along to get the nitty gritty on the transformations theyve brought their house through over the last year. Rebekah

How to play George Harrison's guitar solo on "Let It Be"? This video has every little detail covered. Meanwhile, other videos neatly map out the finer points of Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" or Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven." Pick your favorite song, and chances are someone has created a primer.

Then occasionally you run into videos like this--a tutorial straight from the artist him or herself. Above, Wayne Kramer, co-founder of Detroit's ur-punk band, the MC5, sets the record straight and shows you the authentic way to play the 1969 anthem, "Kick Out the Jams. "There are guys out there trying to show you how to play 'Kick Out the Jams,' and they're all getting it wrong," says Kramer. "They're all messing it up. None of them are doing it right, and I've had enough." So here is the "the proper, correct and official way" to play it. Let the lesson begin.

For good measure, he includes the lyrics and chords in the YouTube blurb:

Current State Of Health Care Data

Health records around the world are currently stored by a multitude of medical institutions and data companies, and while this information is sometimes shared, it is limited and problematic. Issues regarding privacy and accessibility make combining and analyzing data from multiple sources difficult. As a result, vital information that could contribute to health research greatly lies dormant.

Privacy for patients is paramount within the healthcare industry. Though necessary, privacy implications severely limit the access medical professionals and researchers have to personal records. Accessing information requires express consent, which can be difficult to get, especially in the vast quantities needed for meaningful research.

Tonkotsu Ramen Broth "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Tonkotsu Ramen Broth
Any good bowl of ramen starts off with a tasty broth and homemade is the best! Home made broth takes a bit of time but it's pretty easy. You start out with bones and the combination of pork and chicken bones is good for flavour. The bones are boiled once, the initial water is discarded and the bones are then rinsed and scrubbed to remove the blood and bits which makes for a broth that is lighter, less cloudy, and has a cleaner taste. Onions, garlic and ginger are another common addition and charring them first adds an extra depth of flavour to the broth. You could leave things there and make a tasty broth but I like to add mushrooms, seaweed and bacon for even more layers of flavour and that umami kick. Everything needs to simmer for a long time, about 10-16 hours, to extract all of the flavour that you can before the solids are strained from the broth. Because the broth takes so long to simmer it can be done overnight and it's a good idea to make it a day or two ahead of time. Once the broth has been strained you can skim the fat off the top and use it right away or you can chill it in the fridge where the fat will form a solid layer on top of the broth that you can more easily remove. A good broth will be gelatinous after chilling in the fridge and it will melt easily back into a tasty liquid when reheated on the stove. This broth is perfect for tonkotsu (pork) ramen and many other soups!

Betrayal: How the REPUBLICANS Are Gutting the Second Amendment "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

This article was originally published by Daisy Luther at The Organic Prepper

Everyone likes to blame the Democrats for gun control, but heres a news flash: those of us who fervently believe in the Second Amendment are actually being betrayed by members of the Republican party who are in Congress right now. Bills on the table right now would gut our right to bear arms, and the Congress is controlled by Republicans.

The spending bill that Congress hopes to pass is more than 2200 pages, according to Senator Rand Paul, who was outraged at being given less than a day to read the entire bill.

Incredible Kingfisher Photo Is the Result of 6 Months of Hard Work, No Photoshop Necessary "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Kingfisher Diving Highspeed Photography by Mario Cea

Spanish wildlife photographer Mario Cea is known for his incredible bird photography. Using slow shutter speeds and artificial light, he's able to capture feathered creatures in unexpected, artistic moments. Regularly winning international photography competitions, Cea's stunning photo of a kingfisher diving into a pond won the People's Choice Award at the 2016 Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition and was recently shortlisted for the Bird Photographer of the Year Awards.

With over 25 years experience as a wildlife photographer, Cea is an expert at techniques that allow him to make this magic happen in the field. Through hard work and perseverance, the expert wildlife photographer was able to bring his artistic vision to life. In fact, The blue trail is the fruit of 6 months of work and 2,000 shots in order to obtain this perfect result.

So just how did Cea manage to obtain the streaking effect as the kingfisher touched down in the water? This image DOES NOT USE PHOTOSHOP. It is made only with photographic techniques, Cea tells My Modern Met. The image was taken with a slow shutter speed of 1/15s, combined with continuous light to capture the wake left by the bird in its path, with a flash to freeze the flight. When the exposure begins, the continuous light of a lantern is on and the flashes are fired at the second curtain, just when the exposure ends. Some people ask me, Why doesn't the wake appear in the reflection?' The answer is simplethe wake is only visible when the background is dark enough.

There you have it, no special post-production tricks, just knowledge of equipment and hard work to get the perfect photo. For Cea, it's all worth it in order to get across his creative point of view and draw in the viewer. He hopes, that through his photography, people will not only gain a greater appreciation and respect for wildlife, but also understand the work and effort that photographers go through to capture stunning images of birds in nature.

Intuitive Astrology: March Blue Moon 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

A Blue Moon happens when we have two Full Moons within the same calendar month. While Blue Moons are fairly rare, this is the second Blue Moon for 2018.

Falling on March 31st in the sign of Libra, the Blue Moon is going to deliver us a big dose of lunar energy to work with.

While a Blue Moon is no different from a regular Full Moon, having two Full Moons in the same calendar month signifies an opportunity to really release and let go under the vibration of that month.

Seeing as March is a number 3 month, it seems that we are all being guided to tap into this number 3 energy and begin releasing all that is blocking us from bringing this 3 energy into our lives.

In numerology, number 3 represents the divine trinity, and is all about bringing balance to your mind, body, and spirit. In astrology, the number 3 is also the number of divine communication, and represents the harmony that is achieved when you are in communication with all aspects of your mind, body, and soul.

There is a great comfort that comes in learning how to talk and listen to yourself. It is only when you tune in and go within that you can really work out what messages and wisdom is waiting to be given to you.

Everything you need is already inside of you, and under the presence of this Libra Blue Moon, you will really be able to unlock and release all that is stopping you from knowing who you truly are and accessing the innate wisdom that lives within.

Seeing as this Full Moon falls in the sign of Libra, you are also going to be encouraged to think about how you can bring balance back into your life.

If you have been feeling scattered, or have had trouble finding your footing since the start of the year, this Full Moon will really help you to let go of all that is throwing you off center.

Full Moons are always pulling and drawing things out of us so we can clear the past and make space for the future. They also have a way of triggering us to delve deeper into our emotions so we can make sense of what is really troubling us underneath it all.

If emotions come up around the Full Moon, know that they have arisen in order to be looked at, dealt with and cleared. This is so you can get yourself back into balance and feel grounded and centered with the direction of your life.

One of the most powerful tools for releasing is forgiveness. When you forgive yourself and others, when you release yourself of any guilts and pains and bring acceptance in its place, it can be extre...

All together it was one of the worst days of my life.

Machineheads stream-of-consciousness lyrical bullshit aesthetic was a despicable crime that I would argue, on any other day, would have marked the darkest hour in our countrys history.

As for accusations that Bush orchestrated 9/11 for a popularity boost what will you lunatics come up with next? The truth is that they already ambushed our cultural fabric in 1994 with that godforsaken ascending octave hook in the intro to Machinehead.

Have you been to a sporting event where they blare Machinehead over the PA? Have you seen what people do? They cheer. Our children cheer. Nobody cheered for 9/11, probably not even those monsters in Bush. I guess some terrorists DO win.

And no, Bush didnt make up 9/11 to expand the reach of American hegemony into the Middle East. Theyre British, numbnuts. But they did use the far-reaching airplay of Machinehead to shovel muddy guitar riffs and droning vocal melodies down our collective throats to the point that we were numb enough to let Creed sell tens of millions of albums. That only finishes second by a nose to manning several planes full of hostages directly into an American icon, if you want my two cents.

So just stop, crackpots. Bush didnt magically drum up 9/11. This isnt some Conspiracy of One. I mean, come on, that album had Original Prankster on it. And, lets be honest, thats probably a hair worse.

Gold and silver nanoparticles induce apoptosis and regulates p53 and Bcl-2 expression in human breast adenocarcinoma cells. "IndyWatch Feed Health"

PMID:  Biol Trace Elem Res. 2018 Mar 18. Epub 2018 Mar 18. PMID: 29552710 Abstract Title:  Gold and Silver Nanoparticles Biomimetically Synthesized Using Date Palm Pollen Extract-Induce Apoptosis and Regulate p53 and Bcl-2 Expression in Human Breast Adenocarcinoma Cells. Abstract:  Recently, several attempts have been made to use the phytopharmaceuticals from plant extracts as reducing, capping and stabilizing agents for the biomimetic synthesis of various metal nanoparticles conjugated to the phytopharmaceuticals. These biogenic metal nanoparticles are non-toxic and can be used as contrast agents, drug delivery vehicles and photothermal agents for cancer therapy. Herein, we report the synthesis of both silver and gold nanoparticles using the pollen extract of Phoenix dactylifera (Date Palm), characterization using UV-visible spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, quantitation of phytochemicals capping the nanoparticles using Folin - Ciocalteu's method, cytotoxicity studies on MCF-7 breast cancer cells, cancer cell death analysis using fluorescent microscopy, and modulation of expression of the pro-apoptotic p53 and anti-apoptotic Bcl-2 proteins. The biosynthesis resulted in stable and poly-dispersed silver nanoparticles and gold nanoparticles, exhibiting strong and broad surface plasmon absorption peaks. The elemental analysis confirmed the presence of gold and silver of high purity and also the organic moieties from the plant extract acting as capping and stabilizing agents. The biogenic nanoparticles also exhibited dose-dependent cytotoxicity on MCF-7 cells and showed signs of apoptotic cell death. Immunoassays revealed the upregulation of the pro-apoptotic protein p53 and down-regulation of the anti-apoptotic protein Bcl-2 after the nanoparticle treatment.

Limits of Casual Friday Policy Tested with Goatwhore Shirt "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

TRENTON, N.J. Local metalhead and office temp Sean Durham tested the boundaries of Casual Friday attire last week by wearing his beloved Goatwhore T-shirt to work, according to multiple reports to the Human Resources department.

I wear Costco button-down shirts and the same clip-on tie every day, so this is a nice change of pace, said Durham, wearing the shirt depicting the naked body of a woman with the head of some sort of ram-like animal. Its a good way to show everyone the kind of person I am outside of work. I know its kind of edgy, but I think itll be worth it to dress like my real self for once.

Office management was caught off-guard by the offensive print.

Originally, we thought this policy would be a fun way to boost company morale, but I had no idea I was opening the floodgates to this kind of shit, said Durhams boss, Violet Hoffman. I really dont know what the hell to do. Should I check to see if hes planning on wearing an SS officers hat for Goofy Hat Day next week?


Sources later confirmed Hoffman was abso-fucking-lutely considering disciplinary measures against Durham for his actions.

Goatwhore? Are you fucking kidding me? If Violet doesnt do something, Im calling corporate, said H.R. representative Paul Greenblatt. I just wanted to wear jeans and Skechers, and now I gotta deal with complaints from other workers about his stupid shirt? Fuck you, Sean.

As the day progressed and reactions to his shirt grew more negative, Durham began to question his clothing choice.

Im not sure if people are loving this as much as I am. Im getting a lot of weird looks, said Durham, fully unaware of the severity of his understatement. Maybe I should have gone with a less offensive shirt, like Toxic Holocaust, or Dying Fetus.

At press time, Durham was seen packing the contents of his cubicle into a box and unsuccessfully trying to remove the Assck sticker from his desk.

New British Passports to be Written in French "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

The glorious new post-EU British passports are to be written in French and all passport photos are to have berets and baguettes superimposed onto the owners.  The title on the cover will controversially be written as Passeport de la Rosbifs.

Angry Brexiteers demanded manufacture of the passports be taken off the French and be manufactured here in Britain by our very-own foreigners. We want British foreigners here in Britain to make British stuff while being treated badly and underpaid, not actual foreigners in foreignland! said one angry beet-faced Brexiteer.  That was the whole point of Brexit.I think.  At least I think it was.  Something to do with British stuff and foreigners or something wasnt it?  Cant really remember now.  Can we have another vote on it?

The new passports will only allow Britons to enter holiday resorts in Spain and Greece, as well as popular stag and hen-do destinations in Eastern Europe, where the hilarious japes and hi-jinks of boozed up British morons are universally loved and welcomed by the locals.

Upon re-entering the UK the new passport-holders will have to recite to border-control officers the full chronological order of English Kings and Queens dating back to Egbert of Wessex or they will be sent to the biometric e-passport lane which as usual, wont be working.


Poetry Rx: Rootless and Rejected "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

In our column Poetry Rx, readers write in with a specific emotion, and our resident poetsSarah Kay, Kaveh Akbar, and Claire Schwartztake turns prescribing the perfect poems to match. This week, Sarah Kay is on the line.

Dear Poets, 

I was a third-culture kid, which basically means that any attempt to describe my identity requires a silly amount of en dashes. I recently went through a difficult breakup that has made my lack of roots more apparent and intolerable. I know this is a big ask, but is there a poem that can help me build a home?  



Dear TCK,

I am half Japanese American and half Jewish American, I grew up in New York City, and I attended an international school. I am very familiar with the phenomenon of being a third-culture kid, as well as a prisoner of the en dash. (For those less familiar, third-culture kids are children who grow up in a country or culture that is different from that of their parents. It is a common experience of expats or children raised abroad, and while the term attempts to cover a very disparate group of humans, I like that it gives a unifying language to children who grow up feeling different or lost or just a little bit outside. These days I spend my time performing and teaching in schools around the world. I encounter TCKs growing up in totally different countries and they all share similar experiences. They feel like a community to which I am connected. Because of this work, I also spend a lot of time in airports, those miserable transient places, and I spend most of my time far away from anywhere or anyone that feels like home. And oh! Home! That ephemeral and impossible ideal. Where is it? Who is it? How can we find it and reach for it when we need it? Today I give you Naomi Shihab Nyes beautiful piece Gate A-4.

Ai Weiweis Film Human Flow Documents the Staggering Scale of the Global Refugee Crisis "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

To create his new documentary film Human Flow, Chinese artist and activist Ai Weiwei spent a full year traveling through 23 countries, following the journeys of some of the 65 million people forced from their homes to escape famine, climate change, and protracted wars. Crossing oceans and visiting refugee camps in precarious border cities in Afghanistan, Greece, Iraq, Kenya, Mexico, Turkey and beyond, Ai documented the stories of fellow humans of all ages and nationalities who currently have no place to call home.

The individual stories of several refugees and their journeysor near perpetual state of limboare interwoven throughout the film, though Ai focuses mostly on a macro view that illustrates the unimaginable scope of the unfolding crisis that has enveloped entire nations. By its nature, Human Flow recognizes that there are no easy solutions to these monumental catastrophes that impacts all of us directly or indirectly, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not. A healthy dose of compassion and a recognition of a shared humanity would be a good start.

On a personal note, I felt deeply impacted by the film and strongly urge you to watch it.

On Sunday, April 29, 2018, Human Flow will be screened simultaneously across the United States. Immediately following, Ai will participate in a livestream Q&A with audiences around the country. If you are interested in hosting a public screening in a school, library, community center or elsewhere, you can find out more from ro*co films.



How Pre-Columbian Art Influenced Josef Albers "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Installation view: Josef Albers in Mexico Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, (photo: David Heald Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, 2017 )

Between 1935 and 1967, the artists and educators Josef and Anni Albers made over 13 trips to Mexico, visiting major archeological sites like Teotihuacn, Chichn Itz, and Monte Albn. Belying his reputation as a rigid geometrician, Josef Alberss continuous, untrammeled awe at the grandeur of the pre-Columbian world is contagious. Monte Albn is one of the greatest experiences of my life, he records in a letter from the summer of 1936, during one of his first outings to the Zapotec ruins.

These Mexico pilgrimages functioned as sabbaticals for the couple, occasions for them to test their aesthetic theories and discover new ideas, all the while taking advantage of a newfound, touristic freedom aided by English-language guidebooks and an extensive highway system. Although these trips coincided with a period of intense productivity for both artists, however, little study has been made of the connections among the Alberss travels, their pedagogy, and their practice.

Andrew Seidel Comments on a 40-Foot-Tall Cross "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Andrew Seidel

Andrew Seidel, Civil Rights and Constitutional Attorney for the Freedom From Religion Foundation, commented in a short letter to The Washington Post about the cross-shaped monument making some of the news as of late.

As Seidel notes in the March 3, 2018, Metro article, the article is describe as a cross-shaped monument. Seidel, not one for beating around the bush, said, Its a cross. A 40-foot-tall cross. Cross-shaped monument suggests that there is some dispute over this or that this massive cross is only incidentally a Christian cross. While there is some dispute over its history and legality, there is no dispute that it is, and was intended to be, an enormous Christian cross.

He notes that the crosss presence violates the Constitution of the United States of America with the Metro article being partial and biased with a slant towards those who would violate the American Constitution.

The article, as Seidel with laser eyes points out, For instance, it said the Supreme Court ... has not provided clear guidance about displays of religion on government land. In reality, no court, including the Supreme Court, has ever upheld a cross on public land.

That is, the Supreme Court has never, ever supported the presentation of a cross, especially a 40-foot-tall one, on public grounds. Seidel claims that Maryland Governor Larry Hogan, a Republican, was wrong to call the courts decision an offense to every veteran in the country, or an affront to all veterans.

The cross is the affront. There are atheists in foxholes. And Jews and Hindus and Muslims and nonbelievers and non-Christians of every stripe. We owe them better, Seidel concludes, Their sacrifice helped secure our freedom just as must as the sacrifice of our Christian servicemen and women. The court got this right.

Artist Uses Real Flower Petals to Create Blossoming Fashion Illustrations "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Floral Dresses Fashion Illustrations by Grace Ciao

Singapore-based artist Grace Ciao creates fashion illustrations that combine hand-drawn lines and watercolor brushstrokes with real, three-dimensional flowers. Each delicate petal mimics soft fabric, resulting is pretty dress designs informed by the plants natural structure. Ciao explains, I never know what outfits my flowers are going to blossom into until the last petal fits into place!

Ciao started using flowers by accident, when she noticed a wilting rose on her desk. Rather than throw it away, she gave it a new lease of life by combining its petals into a fashion illustration. The artist reveals, Its always unnerving to step out of my comfort zone but I feel this is when I grow the most as a person.

Each of Ciaos floral dresses feature unique textures, forms, and colors depending on the type of flower used. In one piece, a woman is illustrated wearing a pair of pink culottes formed from the trumpet-shaped petals of a Zantedeschia. In another, a ballerina poses in a flouncy peony dress, and in a third piece, a woman twirls to show off her flourishing orchid skirt.

With clients including Chanel, Christian Dior, and Fendi, Ciaos career is in full bloom. You can see more from her growing portfolio on Instagram.

Anthony DeStefano Declares Atheism Religious But Bankrupt "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Faith culture reporters view religion as under withering assault as the growth of atheism throughout the world is seen as growing at an alarming rate across the globe.

Anthony DeStefano reported that countries in Western Europe and North America have been increasing in atheism in a very short time. He notes that the second largest group of the religious demographics are the religiously unaffiliated.

The United States of America is comprised of a quarter of that population, the religiously unaffiliated or the Nones. Within the previous decade, the Nones have overtaken the Roman Catholic Church in the United States as a faith group.

The Nones, according to the Pew Forum, are growing and the faithful have been ridding themselves of faith to become more non-religious for a myriad of reasons. Some of those include the idea that religious belief and rational thought are incommensurable.

People of faith have been behaving in atrocious and domineering ways, bad ways. Others do want the spiritual elements of life but without the formal strictures one can find in the traditional religious denominations within the continents mentioned.

The firebrand atheists found in the New Atheism are seen, by DeStefano, as confident and that this is seductive allure for the younger generations, who he sees as hedonistic, self-centered, self-absorbed with no moral truths or commandments.

Atheists are rejecting the dominant dogmas of the majority religions, which is a concern for DeStefano because the religious beliefs and ethics appear to not have much relevance for their lives. This extends to believers; they are believers in name only.

He views them as functional atheist or those who live as if God does not exist.

DeStefano opined, Its not an exaggeration to say that the world we live in today is literally facing a crisis of faith. I believe that too many Christians today are sleeping. They live a very comfortable Christianity.

He considers that Christian is under attack in a very bold, aggressive, and fearless way. He asserts, the new atheism is a religion that has its own philosophy (materialism), morality (relativism), politics (social Darwinism), and culture (secularism). It even has its own sacraments (abortion and euthanasia).

Centralized vs Decentralized Cryptocurrency Exchanges: Vulnerability of Most Trading Platforms "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Billions of dollars are traded on major cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance, Huobi, Bithumb, and OKEx on a daily basis, and users tend to prefer these exchanges over other platforms in the market due to their high liquidity.

Binance for instance, the worlds largest cryptocurrency exchange, settles more than $1.8 billion worth of cryptocurrency trades per day, and it is processing $370 million worth of bitcoin trades alone.

But, in order to trade on these platforms with reasonable trading limits and flexibility, users are required to undergo a rigorous Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) verification process, during which users have to submit relevant government-issued documents like passports, carry out face-to-face interviews, and provide bank documents.


For cryptocurrency-only exchanges like Binance and Huobi, KYC and AML requirements for users are significantly less strict in comparison fiat-to-cryptocurrency exchanges. Still, to withdraw relatively large amounts of bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency like Waves, users need to be KYC and AML compliant.

As instant cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift CEO Erik Voorhees stated before, KYC and AML systems can leave centralized platforms vulnerable to data thefts and hacking attacks, especially if exchanges store sensitive information such as passport data, banking documents, social security numbers, and more.

In June 2015, Voorhees boldly decided to leave a big cryptocurrency market in New York due to the BitLicense, a licensing program for cryptocurrency-related businesses that enforces strict KYC and AML regulations.

It would maybe be a different story if, you know, companies and governments were able to retain secure records of things. But just last week, there were 4 million accounts [compromised] on several computers its every couple of weeks theres a big data breach somewhere, Voorhees said at the time.

Fox News Contributor Opines on Atheism and Christianity "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Fox News reporter, Anthony DeStefano, argues that the atheists of today are bullies working to silence the religious with intimidation.

In Atheists are bullies -- and they are doing their best to intimidate the rest of us into silence (2018), DeStefano calls the atheists of the modern culture arrogant, dangerous, and ignorant.

Not only this, they are the most of each of those traits on Earth. He points to examples of atheists protesting against religious imagery in public and the mentions of Merry Christmas. He points to an example from American Atheists.

American Atheists had a campaign in December, 2017, with the annual billboard campaign wit this one saying, Stay Away from Churchits All Fake News. He took aim at the American Humanist Association with the mention of Christianity and Jesus Christ by President Donald Trump without mention of non-believers too.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation became another target with the late Rev. Bill Graham being laid to rest in the Capitol Rotunda prior to the burial. DeStefano says, Yes, these atheists are loud, nasty, unapologetic and in-your-face.

He considers atheists dismissing the vast majority of human beings as being in ignorance for most of human history. He pivots to stating that the greatest contributions to civilization have been on behalf of believers including Aristotle, Francis Bacon, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Isaac Newton all believed in God as well as Antoine Lavoisier, Werner von Braun, Wilhelm Rontgen, William Whewell, and others.

He points to the proposal by Fr. George Lemaitre as for the big bang in Big Bang Theory, and to the case of Gregor Mendel, a monk, as the father of modern genetics. DeStefano continues, Yes, the new atheists have an ignorance of history bordering on madness.

He asserts atheism can only support an ethic of ruthless social Darwinism. Then he moves on to the assertion of religion always being about economic gain, territorial gain, civil and revolutionary conflicts, and not religion in general and Christianity in particular, where known wars back to 8,000 BC have been mostly not religious in nature.

He uses Philip Axelrod from Encyclopedia of Wars as the main point of reference. He asserts 360 million people were killed by atheist governments. That there is a profound and frightening connection between atheis...

Judge Vance Day Denied Marriage Licenses to Homosexual Couples "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Vance Day

Hement Mehta reported on the Marion County Circuit Judge Vance Days punishment by the Oregon Supreme Court with the longest sentence its ever given to a sitting judge.

Judge Day refused to marry same-sex couples for three years. He told staff to avoid the public detection of his activities in the denial of equal marriage to homosexual couples. For example, if a same-sex couple came to his workplace and asked the staff for a marriage license, the staff would declare that Day was unavailable at that time.

This was not the case for heterosexual or straight couples. Day has been suspended. He will not be given pay. Of 8 claims of professional misconduct, he was found guilty of 6. Vance is a proud Evangelical Christian.

What Day doesnt understand is a simple truth about his office. As the saying goes, he put his hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution, not the other way around, Mehta stated, His private beliefs about gay couples go out the window when hes on the clock. Instead, his poor judgment was always on display. Its about time he got punished for it.

Ireland Approves Abortion Referendum Bill "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"


Under Irish law, a woman who seeks an abortion after rape can face a longer prison sentence than her rapist but this could be about to change. Actually, a woman can be sentenced to 14 years in prison for seeking termination of pregnancy. Abortion in Ireland is illegal unless it occurs as the result of a medical intervention performed to save the life of the woman. Exceptions exist only in the case of a risk to the life of the woman, including a risk of suicide. The Constitution also protects the right to travel to obtain an abortion outside the state and to receive information about services outside the state.

The Irish government has proposed the Thirty-sixth Amendment of the Constitution Bill 2018 and has agreed the wording of a national referendum on abortion to be held by the end of May. This referendum would further weaken the influence of the Catholic Church in Ireland. The upcoming vote could significantly affect the lives of women in Ireland because voters will be asked if they want to repeal article 40.3.3 known as the eighth amendment which since 1983 has given unborn fetuses and pregnant women an equal right to life. The wording of the Eighth Amendment will be replaced by: "Provision may be made by law for the regulation of termination of pregnancies."

If voters in a referendum vote to repeal article 40.3.3 the government has said it will introduce legislation permitting unrestricted abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. Since 1983, an estimated 170,000 women have left Ireland to have terminations, and up to 2,000 women each year illegally take the abortion pill, accessed online. As of 2010, the abortion rate was 4.5 abortions per 1,000 women aged 1544 years.

Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Leo Varadkar said this referendum is about asking citizens to allow women to make major decisions for themselves. "It's about trusting women to decide, in the early weeks of their pregnancy, what's right for them and their families," Mr. Varadkar said. "And it's about trusting our doctors to decide when continuing with a pregnancy is a risk to the life or health of a woman." He added: "Above all it's about trusting Irish people to consider this matter in depth, with compassion and empathy, as I know they will," the BBC reports.

Today is a significant milestone for the tens of thousands of supporters who have been campaigning for decades to remove the eighth from the constitution for once and for all. We need abortion care that is safe and regulated, in line with best medical practice, and today brings us a crucial step forward in trying to achieve this important goal, Ailbhe...

4 Important Tools For Navigating Everyday Life "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Olivia Weil;

We are not Human Beings having a Spiritual experience. We are Spiritual Beings having a Human experience.

We are not here to be perfect enlightened beings, we are here to experience.

Fear, grief, pain, loss. Happiness, joy, confidence, strength. Fear, sadness, insecurity, suffering. Courage, passion, expression, love. The ebbs and flows of emotions we witness day to day (or even moment to moment)as spiritual beings having this human experiencecan feel overwhelming, and too much to bear at times. Fortunately, there are tools in our spiritual tool kits that can help us to realign and recalibrate any time we are in a state of being we dont prefer.

Using this four step process, we can come back to the present moment, the Eternal Nowthe only moment we really ever have. Last blog post, we talked about three superpowers we have (1) the breath (2) intention and (3) intuition. These are core personal powers we can use daily. Employing these tools, along with the four-step process, can help to alleviate stress or emotional burdens we encounter throughout daily life.

So what are they?

The four-step process Ive created for Walking the Beauty Way is to (1) surrender (2) ask for help (3) trust the universe and (4) choose love. I use this four-step process any time I am feeling out of alignment with my true nature or experiencing a state of Being which I dont prefer, such as fear, frustration, sadness, insecurity, or the like. My intention and hope by sharing these tools is that you too may utilize this same four-step process any time you are feeling overwhelmed or overburdened as well.
