A Year Without Summer "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

In the early 1300s, there were three years without summer, in a row. In Europe, the crop failures were devastating. Starvation lead to disease. In a generation, the population was cut in half, and then almost half again. These three years without summer weren't an isolated event, they were the harbinger of what later became known as the Little Ice Age. According to some historians, this little ice age lasted into the early 20th Century. But that's all in the past. Humanity survived....

Maeterlinck and The Mystery of Love "IndyWatch Feed Literature"


Mars, Venus, and Cupid by Rubens at Nationalmuseum Sweden

THE MYSTERY OF LOVE

BY

DAVID ARTHUR WALTERS



To Sara Mosher

An author cannot be in want of a topic for very long. What he really needs if he cannot proceed is not a topic but a motive, perchance mysteriously elicited by a communication from another being provoking his soul into sympathetic response.

A friend of mine who lives thousands of miles away, whom I have never seen nor heard nor touched, sent me a message this morning on the perennial subject of love. She is a strong woman who acts energetically with a purpose in mind. At the moment she is actively interested in loving and being loved, and is presently exploring the possibilities. What struck me most of all within her message was her remark that she wants to be hugged.

I know what she means. I think many of us are like children who want to be picked up and hugged. Human beings amongst other living creatures have a basic need to be held, hugged, touched and such. I have felt that very need myself from time to time, and sometimes very desperately so. I think the early, subconscious memories of being he...

The Mysterious E at Delphi "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

 
 
 
THE MYSTERIOUS E AT DELPHI
BY
DAVID ARTHUR WALTERS

Leto's all-glorious son goes to rocky Pytho, playing upon his hollow lyre, clad in divine, perfumed garments; and at the touch of the golden key his lyre sings sweet. Hesiod

The Mysterious E and The Egg at Delphi

Zeus sent two golden eagles, one from the East, the other from the West. Their meeting located the center of the world at a place we call Delphi. Their juncture was commemorated with a stone egg, an omphalos. Upon the world-egg is inscribed four letters, the last three of which spell the original name of the great Earth goddess, Gaea.

Gaea's shrine was right there, below snowy Parnassus, long before Apollo slew Python, the dragoness guarding it, and seized the real estate for his cult; a murder and grand larceny for which he served eight years at hard labor to purge his blood-guilt. Poets sometimes called Delphi, "pytho", or "I rot", for there hot Helios caused the she-dragon's flesh to rot. If we are to believe Hesiod, she deserved her demise, for "Whosoever met the dragoness, the day of doom would sweep him away."

The dragonesss sidekick was Hera's spite-child, the monstrous Typhoeus, whose successors, in the form of typhoons, still wreak havoc about the globe. A form of Typhoeus also pla...

Environmentalists and Farmers Seek Court Decision Halting Use of Dows Agent Orange Pesticide "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Environmentalists and Farmers Seek Court Decision Halting Use of Dows 'Agent Orange' Pesticide

By Earthjustice

Late [last] Wednesday, a coalition of environmental organizations and farmers represented by the Center for Food Safety (CFS) and Earthjustice filed new legal papers in federal court seeking the reversal of Scott Pruitt and the Trump Environmental Protection Agencys (EPA) approval of Dow Chemicals toxic pesticide, Enlist Duo. The novel pesticide is a combination of glyphosate and 2,4-D, to be sprayed over the top of corn, cotton and soybeans that are genetically engineered by Dow with resistance to both pesticides.

Our filing reveals that EPA approved Enlist Duo despite its significant harms to health, environment, farms, water, and endangered species, said Sylvia Wu, CFS attorney and counsel for the coalition. EPAs job is protecting the environment, human health, and farmers, not blindly do the bidding of pesticide companies. The court must stop its use.

Schlemihls and Water Sprites "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Were all probably familiar with muggles and mugwumps, and happy to point out a catch-22, knowing very well which books they come from. Well casually talk of utopia or pandemonium, or describe something as gargantuan, while only distantly remembering that More, Milton and Rabelais coined the terms. The geekier amongst us will never miss a chance to point out that robot and cyberspace were the inventions of science fiction writers. Chortle has passed so easily into English that not many know it was actually one of Lewis Carrolls portmanteaus (and, yes, Carroll invented portmanteau as well.) And thats not even getting on to Shakespeares legendary level of coinage.  Writers imaginary words slip easily into reality.

I first came across the word schlemihl via Thomas Pynchon: V, first page, In which Benny Profane, a schlemihl and human yo-yo gets to an apocheir. While Im still not quite sure what an apocheir is, schlemihl seemed perfectly clear at the time I read V, the concept of the slacker was much in vogue, and one with which I readily identified. While I didnt for a minute think that Pynchon had coined the word, (correctly) assuming it to be one of the many Yiddish words that have made it into common US usage, schlemihl probably moved from an oral culture into a wider written one due to a once hugely popular book, now almost entirely forgotten. Perhaps the verbally-voracious Pynchon had read it.

*

Peter Schlemihl by Adelbert von Chamisso was first published in Germany in 1813. The titular Peter is indeed a hapless lad, tempted into making a bargain with a strange man in grey who looks like a bit of thread blown from a tailors needle. He offers Peter endless gold in exchange for what? Merely his shadow.

Of course, it doesnt work out well. Peter soon finds that despite his bottomless wealth, without a shadow, he is shunned from all kinds of society, polite and otherwise.

Chamisso acknowledges no source for his protagonists name, and while it certainly is Yiddish (though more commonly spelled schlemiel), its origins are debated some claim its from the Hebrew term shelo moil, meaning useless, and others that its derived from the name Shelumiel, an Israe...

What it Takes For a Business to Win in the Digital Age "IndyWatch Feed Education"

What is digital transformation? How does a business survive the digital age? BCG and University of Virginia experts tackle questions like these in their course: Digital Transformation. Get the inside scoop from course instructors Michael Lenox, Senior Associate Dean of University of Virginias Darden School of Business, and Amane Dannouni, Principal at The Boston Consulting Group.

What is digital transformation?

Michael: Its become a buzz word thats been created to capture technology and business shifts that are occurring because of digitization. Everything from changes in back-office processes as big data occurs, to The Internet of Things, and the implications of that for a wide variety of industries.

The critical thing to know is that this is not your typical IT discussion of what information technologies a business needs. The course is more about how digital disruption is transforming products and services, business models, and the supply chain.

What first sparked your interest in teaching a course like this?

Amane: How will digital transformation affect my business? To answer that question we must first define what digital transformation is and thats what we look at in this course. We want to get as many people as possible to understand the basics before moving to the question of  what does this mean for me?

What excites me about digital transformation is the unpredictability. We know the past what happened and at what speed, but we always fall short in predicting the future. The lack of predictably makes it a very exciting sector to be a part of.

Who should be taking this course?

Michael: People who are dealing with digital disrup...

A Diabetes Vaccine Has Been Announced and the Entire World Needs to Know! "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Millions of people worldwide suffer from diabetes. For those who may not be aware, diabetes is a metabolic disease that caused the body to be unable to produce insulin or enough insulin thus causing high levels of glucose in the blood.

However, one vaccine that has already been FDA approved as a form of treatment for bladder cancer might be the answer to this growing issue. In trials using mice, this vaccine has proven to be quite effective in reversing type 1 diabetes as it can and does eliminate problematic white blood cells that lead to diabetes.

The vaccine I am referring to is known as Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) and it is currently in its second phase which it was tested to see if it was as effective in humans as it has been animals. If these findings hold true then it will mean that BCG is able to regenerate insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas and that we could have been using it in this way many years ago since this vaccine has been in place since the early 1900s.

We think were seeing early evidence of effectiveness. This simple, inexpensive vaccine attacks the autoimmunity underlying type 1 diabetes.

We found that even low doses of the vaccine could transiently reverse type 1 diabetes and this was in patients who have had the disease for 15 years.

Our measurements showed that autoimmune T cells that destroy the islet cells died, and we saw evidence that insulin production was restored.

Results thus far from this FDA-approved clinical trialed testing were presented at the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association. This data shows that it really makes a huge difference. While this trial is not quite over it has been quite promising thus far. You can learn more by clicking here or checking out the video below. What do you think, could this actually turn out to be a vaccine for diabetes?

Icon Shows How Startups Bypass South Koreas ICO Ban "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Foreign-Issued Cryptocurrency Allows South Korean Startups to Bypass Legislation

South Korea banned initial coin offerings (ICOs) in September 2017. Market watchers in the country have been since calling for a lift of the ICO ban in order to finance the development of blockchain projects. The ban on ICOs, however, is failing to produce the desired results as blockchain-based startups in South Korea are going around the legislation by raising money through initial coin offerings overseas.

In response, the country is reaching out to Japan and China to explore regulatory cooperation within the Asian market. South Koreas Financial Supervisory Service has also asked companies within its jurisdiction to report on their overseas ICOs.

 Icon was launched by DAYLI Financial Group and started trading on March 21 at Bithumb, the largest cryptocurrency exchange in South Korea. At the launch, the operator announced an airdrop event for its customers which drove the price of the digital currency up by over 100% to the $4 area. Today, ICX trades around $2.85.

The rise of foreign-issued cryptocurrencies seemed to be inevitable for many as the market adapts to regulation by looking elsewhere to raise funds. About a dozen South Korean companies have done ICOs overseas already, including an affiliate of corporate giant Hyundai Group, one of South Koreas largest conglomerates, which has launched the Hdac coin, in Switzerland.

Pesticides Are Making Children Aggressive "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Pesticides Children Aggressive, Time for an Overhaul

By Evaggelos Vallianatos

Pesticides cause a multitude of adverse effects  on humans. However, they are especially harmful to children. They may have something to do with the mass-shootings in schools all over America because some of them are neurotoxins. This means they affect and damage the central nervous system and the brain of all animals, including humans.

SEE: Is Monsanto Contributing To The Rise In Mass Shootings?

Warren Porter, professor emeritus of zoology at the University of Wisconsin, conducted experiments with ground water water drawn from the ground of farms with typical levels of pesticides and fertilizers. He chose farm water contaminated with the insecticide aldicarb, the herbicide atrazine, and nitrogen fertilizer. He tested that mixture on white mice and deer mice.

The concentrations of the fertilizer with each of the pesticides (aldicarb and atrazine) in the ground water were of the order of magnitude the Environmental Protection Agency says the chemicals cause no unreasonable harm to man and the environment.

CBO Report: Republicans Accelerate The USs Path Toward Bankruptcy "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

It doesnt take a math whiz to know that the nation is headed toward a complete bankruptcy. But now, a new CBO (Congressional Budget Office) report released is ripping the mask off of the Republicans in Congress and showing us who they really are: Democrats.

After the last horrifying budget deal which saw trillion dollar deficits, Republicans can no longer be called the party of being fiscally conservative.  It appears that the Deep State will get their way regardless of who is in power, and theres nothing the rest of us can do about it.

Last year the Congressional Budget Office warned that Uncle Sam was racing toward fiscal insolvency. Although the CBO expected the deficit to fall to only $487 billion this year, it would start growing again next year. By 2022 the flood of red ink would near $1 trillion. By 2027 it would reach $1.4 trillion. The cumulative deficit over the following decade would be more than $9.4 trillion and 4 percent of GDP, as outlays grew ever higher. Expenditures currently are about 21 percent of GDP, above the 50-year average of 20.3 percent. By 2027, CBO projected spending would hit 23.4 percent of GDP. National Review

The corporate government is bankrupt, and its only getting worse in spite of Republican promises to fix it.  The CBOs report on the federal governments finances over the next decade is the stuff of nightmares.  And with Republicans holding all three branches of government, theres little they can do to shake the truth: they are all the same.

As the agency politely put it, projected deficits over the 2018-2027 period have increased markedly since June 2017. The rise was almost entirely the result of the spending and tax bills approved last year: Uncle Sam will be spending a lot more while taking in a good bit less in the future. That is, the Republican-controlled executive and legislative branches went wild and abandoned even the pretense of fiscal responsibility. It wasnt the first time, of course: In the early 2000s, President George W. Bush and the Republican Congress spent money faster than even Lyndon Johnson and his Democratic congressional majority.

ODUWA COIN: The Perfect Hedge for Bitcoin Volatility "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

In the history of investing or speculation, there has been no asset with a higher degree of volatility than Bitcoin. What started out as a simple idea written on a white paper by Satoshi Nakamoto has become a global phenomenon for investors from all walks of life. Even at todays price of $8000, Bitcoin has registered a gain of 266,666,566% from its low price of $.003 in March 2010.

While many have gotten rich off Bitcoin and many others have left a fortune on the table by getting out too early, others have simply stayed on the sidelines due to Bitcoins price volatility. Since January 2012, Bitcoin has crashed over 50% on five separate occasions. These extreme moves and the lack of a hedging instrument have made many mere spectators.

While we wont say the volatility will calm down, there is at least now finally a hedge for Bitcoins volatility. The solution is ODUWA COIN.

ODUWA COIN is a Nextgen cryptocurrency that offers indemnity and insurance against the volatility of the cryptocurrencies listed on the platform. This is achieved by combining Blockchain technology and insurance to give investors a way to insure themselves from losses in the cryptocurrency market.

The financial experts behind ODUWA understand investors concerns that investing in cryptocurrency is an enterprise with high risk considering its digital nature that is always prone to hackers, volatility and high uncertainty within the coin market. ODUWA aims to counter these problems through an intelligent solution, which involves selecting coins to insure, keeping a proportional reserve to the invested amount, and automated smart contracts.

The goal of ODUWAs volatility insurance offering is to protect investors, utilizing a contract, against losses in leading, high-quality cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Monero and ODUWA COIN. The list is expected to grow in line with the platforms journey to maturity.

When investors put money into any of the cryptocurrencies that are on the platforms approved list and if they select the insurance option, then ODUWA COIN guarantees that the particular investment is covered against loss through an insurance contract, for the period stipulated in the contract. The insurance coverage comes for free to the investor, based on the understanding that, if the value of the cryptocurrency falls during the contract period, then ODUWA absorbs and covers the loss; while, at the same time, if the investment value rises, then ODUWA shares in the profit.

Investors can also choose from a range of insurance...

Book Review: Providence by Caroline Kepnes "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

When the newest book, Providence, by Caroline Kepnesbecame available, I excitedly requested and downloaded it on NetGalley. Her first book, You, is one of my favorites, and her second, Hidden Bodies, was very strong. I rushed through Providence this week turning the pages and watching a strange story unfold before my eyes. There are many parts I enjoyed, a few I thought were just okay, and in the end would give it about 3.5 stars.

nce

Lets start out with a little bit about the story two teenagers are best friends in love with one another but unwilling to tell the other. We see why they click and what is appealing in both. Then Jon goes missing. The book jumps several years later and Chloe is now dating the guy who picked on Jon when they were younger. We have no idea what happened to Jon. More time passes and we find out Jon was kidnapped by someone at their school, and when he wakes up, hes been in a medically-induced coma for years. Hes physically matured and somehow developed a bit of a supernatural power. This is where I got worried Im not a fantasy or sci-fi reader, but Im trying to branch out, so this was a really great opportunity to check out another genre.

I wasnt disappointed....

Hotel California to review check-out policy in light of Tripadvisor ratings "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Heartbreak Hotel just down the road 'a better bet'A popular Californian hotel has admitted that serious administrative oversights may have contributed to an onslaught of damning feedback on travel website, Tripadvisor.com.

We are heartened to see such positive comments about our flexible check-out timings, with many remarking that the Hotel California is ideal for solo or business travel, said Head of PR, Eddie Frey. But taking into account the volume of issues that have been raised about slow room service, the quality of the continental breakfast and involuntary infinite captivity, weve decided to make some changes if were to stay competitive with the local Ramada Inn.

The advent of social media has given a voice to disgruntled guests, many of whom have been enforced residents in the hotel lobby for several decades. Its one thing to physically prevent us from leaving, reads one two-star review, but they could at least offer us a few comps from the bar. I asked the barman for a Campari a few years back. He told me they hadnt had that spirit there since 1969. And there were no sodding nuts.

Whilst unconfirmed reports suggested that some guests were complaining merely to qualify for their first Tripadvisor reviewer badge, local law enforcement declined to comment on whether they would be investigating what some claim is a mass hostage situation in matching bathrobes.

But several guests expressed their satisfaction with their eternal imprisonment, citing the cleanliness of the bathroom and receptionists cleavage as aspects they would recommend to a friend although a handful of reviewers were concerned that this doesnt count as a spare room, right?

The Age of Wreckers and Exterminators "IndyWatch Feed Literature"

Jane Jacobs and Rachel Carson.

 

It was midnight when the lone auburn-haired woman arrived on the beach. Tall and stooped, just shy of fifty-five, Rachel Carson looked considerably older than her years. She swayed a moment as she sat, drank in the briny air. To feel the full wildness, she switched off her flashlight. Then, adjusting her eyes to the darkness, she turned her attention to the swell and roar of the sea. Tonight it was full of diamonds and emeralds, flecks of phosphorescence that wave after wave hurled onto the sand. The individual sparks were huge. She could see them glowing in the sand, or sometimes, caught in the in-and-out play of water, sluicing back and forth.

This is what Carson lived for: bearing witness to the natural world in all its mystery, attuning herself to the earths rhythms and eternal cycles, feeling a part of the vast stream of time. It was why shed spent the last four difficult years pushing so hard to complete Silent Spring. For all her travails, she had known from the moment shed first read the field studies on the dangers of the synthetic pesticide DDT that she would feel no future peace until she shared with the world the gravity of what she saw. She had written the book because she wanted to change things, to alter the way people treated the natural world, to stop the mindless poisoning of it. Though Carson knew she had little time left to live, sitting on this beach tonight she had no regrets. She was filled with a sense that it had all been worth it: the years of isolation; the painstaking work; even her battle, now lost, against the cancer. The publics reception of the excerpts appearing all summer in The New Yorker had been immediate and enthusiasticgreater, even, than she had dared dream. Especially cheering had been E.B. Whites kind note, commending her forby now she had memorized the wordsthe courage you showed in putting on the gloves and going in with this formidable opponent, and for your skill and thoroughness. Silent Spring would be an Uncle Toms Cabin of a book, he predicted, the sort that will help turn the tide. Perhaps she could relax now. Finally, people were beg...

Analysts Expect Bitcoin in Bullish Mode After Tax Day "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Tax Day in the U.S. is today, April 17, and a number of analysts are bullish on Bitcoin as the much-anticipated tax deadline should trigger the next upward momentum.

Tax Day to Spark New Bullish Momentum For Bitcoin

The cryptocurrency market has been hungover ever since Bitcoin entered the futures trading market in December 2017. The downward path in 2018 removed the majority of its market cap, from about $826 billion to $330 billion today. Bitcoin had a similar fate as its market cap plunged from $324 billion to $138 billion, and its price shed $12,000, from $20,000 to about $8,000. Today, however, is Tax Day in the United States.

The IRS says cryptocurrencies constitute property, which is subject to capital gains tax. Institutional investors argue that Tax Day is the trigger of the new bullish run.

Tax-selling has been a significant factor in downward crypto prices over the past few weeks. I would expect this downward pressure to abate after tax day,

Blockchain Capital co-founder Spencer Bogart told CNBC.

The 1,300 percent upward move seen in the Bitcoin price chart should result in $25 billion in taxes for digital currency holdings in the United States, according to Tom Lee, Head of Research at Fundstrat Global Advisors. Lee says that U.S. households captured 30% of the $590 billion capital gains from cryptocurrencies in 2017. The tax rate of 27% on a $92 billion taxable gain means that U.S. holders owe $25 billion.

On April 15, Tom Lee said that Bitcoin may be bottoming;

The Japanese-American Painter Who Chronicled Early 20th-Century Life in the US "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Chiura Obata, A Snow Storm Nearing Yosemite Park Government Center, February 1939 (all image courtesy the Art, Design & Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara unless otherwise noted)

SANTA BARBARA You may not have heard of Chiura Obata, but he was a beloved and influential figure among Northern California artists in the early 20th century. Known for his stunning painted landscapes of the West Coast, Obata merged traditional Japanese ink drawing with a modern hand to produce works that are unpretentiously captivating. But Obata also created stirring depictions of life in the United States that invite one to consider the representation of catastrophe, persecution, and distress from the point of view of an immigrant in the early 20th century in 1903, Obata emigrated from Japan to the US as a young man. These are the themes that take center stage in Chiura Obata: An American Modern, on view at UC Santa Barbaras Art, Design & Architecture Museum through April 29. Curated by ShiPu Wang, the exhibition presents a survey of Obatas artistic output from his early days as an illustrator in San Francisco to his reflections on the atomic bomb.

Formally trained in his native Japan, Obata was a life-long practitioner of Japanese ink painting (sumi-e) and created charming depictions of animals and plants with precise brushwork. After emigrating to California, Obata worked as a magazine and newspaper illustrator, and his style shifted. On the morning of the devastating 1906 earthquake in San Francisco, Obata set out with his sketchbook to capture the wreckage. These sketches of crumbled buildings and upturned trees feel like a street photogra...

WAR ALERT: Russia Sends Warships Carrying Tanks To Syria And Threatens Chaos "IndyWatch Feed Survival"

Russia sent two warships carrying tanks and other military supplies to Syria in the wake of the United States-led attack on Damascus for an alleged chemical attack. It looks like the Wests attack accomplished one thing: a stronger Syria/Russia alliance.

The boats were spotted on The Bosphorus (the straight of Istanbul) on Sunday. This delivery of military supplies from Russia comes on the heels of an attack on Syria led by US president Donald Trump, the United Kingdom, and France.  Russian president Vladimir Putin has also since warned that the world would experience chaos if Syria was attacked again.

The West is alleging Bashar al-Assad, Syrias leader used chemical weapons on civilians to justify military attacks on Damascus and Homs.  But interestingly enough, those strikes occurred the day before international investigators were scheduled to arrive to conduct a thorough inspection of the site.  SHTFPlan

Russia continues to allege the chemical attack used as reasoning by the West to bomb Syria was fabricated.  Based on all the evidence currently gathered, it appears to be a false flag, making Russia correct, and the US guilty of producing massive amounts of pro-war propaganda.

IMF Says Central Banks Have Needless Fears About Cryptocurrencies "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The cryptocurrency ecosystem has found an unexpected backer in the International Monetary Fund. The organization is asking the worlds central banks to be open-minded about digital money as they should distinguish between real threats and needless fears.

IMF Wants to Help Develop Cryptocurrency Regulation

Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, took many in the financial system by surprise with a recent blog post where she seems to be on the side of cryptocurrencies when it comes to the recent overreaction by some central banks, including India and Pakistan. The IMF wants to offer its 189 members advice and serve as a forum for discussion and collaboration in the development of a consistent regulatory approach;

Policymakers should keep an open mind and work toward an even-handed regulatory framework that minimizes risks while allowing the creative process to bear fruit

With over 1,500 different digital coins and tokens in circulation, financial regulators feel pressured to allow the blockchain technology to develop while being threatened by cryptocurrency trading without the oversight of a central monetary authority. The IMFs annual spring meeting in Washington is this week included the hot topic for this year the cryptocurrency market.

According to Coinmarketcap, the total market cap among the 1568 cryptocurrencies spread in 10327 markets is over $300 billion, which is about 4.8 percent of the worlds foreign exchange reserves.

Last week, IMFs Lagarde told Hong Kongs South China Morning Post that the industry is something which is developing fast, is highly volatile, with benefits and downsides.

Firstly, the illicit use of digital currency plus abuse of consumers financial illiteracy must be guarded against. Secondly, innovations from the use of digital mechanisms need to be explored and encouraged. So its a combination of having a framework that protects, and not stifling innovation, that can lead to cost efficiency.

A preliminary assessment made by the IMF concluded that while assets tied to cryptocurrencies dont pose an immediate danger to the global financial system because their footprint is...

Tensions Continue to Rise As Putin Issues Grave Warning of Chaos if Syria is Attacked Again "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


In this kind of situation, Russia has responded exactly how we would have and should have expected them to. This warning came just this past Sunday during a telephone conversation with Hassan Rouhani. They both agreed that the western strikes had damaged chances of achieving political resolution in the area and that if it happens again chaos will be unleashed. This all according to Kremlin statement.

For those of you who do not know, on Saturday the US, France, and Britain launched over 100 missiles targeting what Pentagon claims were three chemical weapons facilities in Syria. This in retaliation to the poison gas attack that happened back earlier this month. Whether or not that poison gas attack was carried out by the Syrian government or not is still not set in stone and both the Russians and the Syrian government are denying involvement. As we reported not too long ago Russian officials actually claimed to have knowledge of false flag attack like this one coming so things are a bit too fishy in recent times, to say the least.

Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.

Were letting Russia know this is not something that we want to be a part of. Its not something were going to tolerate and theyve got to make a decision. Right now, they dont have very good friends, and right now, the friends that they do have are causing them harm.

The international community is telling Russia that either you make a decision on how you act and when you act, or the rest of us will make a decision in isolating you.

According to CNBC, Putin believed these airstrikes violated the United Nations charter and were an act of aggression. While we do not currently know what is going to come of all of this but there is a lot more going on than we are aware of.

For more information on this and things going on in Syria please check out the videos below and try to keep yourself as informed as possible. We are facing some very terrifying things and as the year goes on tension is only going to grow, how much can we all handle?

An Avalanche of Novels, Films and Other Works of Art Will Soon Enter the Public Domain: Virginia Woolf, Charlie Chaplin, William Carlos William, Buster Keaton & More "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

There may be no sweeter sound to the ears of Open Culture writers than the words public domainyou might even go so far as to call it our cellar door. The phrase may not be as musical, but the fact that many of the worlds cultural treasures cannot be copyrighted in perpetuity means that we can continue to do what we love: curating the best of those treasures for readers as they appear online. Public domain means companies can sell those works without incurring any costs, but it also means that anyone can give them away for free. Anyone can re-publish public domain works, notes Lifehacker, or chop them up and use them in other projects. And thereby emerges the remixing and repurposing of old artifacts into new ones, which will themselves enter the public domain of future generations.

Some of those future works of art may even become the next Great American Novel, if such a thing still exists as anything more than a hackneyed clich. Of course, no one seriously goes around saying theyre writing the Great American Novel, unless theyre Philip Roth in the 70s or William Carlos Williams (top right) in the 20s, who both somehow pulled off using the phrase as a title (though Roths book doesn't quite live up to it.) Where Roth casually used the concept in a light novel about baseball, Williams The Great American Novel approached it with deep concern for the survival of the form itself. His modernist text engages the techniques of what we would now call metafiction, writes literary scholar April Boone, to parody worn out formulas and content and, ironically, to create a new type of novel that anticipates postmodern fiction.

Kraken to Suspend Trading in Japan due to Rising Costs and Low Volume "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Japan is a very important country to cryptocurrency companies. With its open-minded regulation and positive approach to cryptocurrencies, there are a lot of benefits to this region. Surprisingly, the Kraken trading platform is ceasing its service in Japan very soon. This sudden decision is the direct result of rising costs associated with offering services to local customers.

Kraken is Exiting Japan

This decision by Kraken comes as a big surprise to most cryptocurrency enthusiasts. The company is one of the few Western service providers offering services in Japan as of right now. That situation will soon change, allegedly due to rising costs of doing business in Japan. This decision is not necessarily permanent, as the company may come back in the future.

Considering how the company has been active in Japan since October 2014, Kraken had plenty of time to evaluate its position in the market. Suspending the services in Japan will let the company provide better focus on other geographical areas. Which countries those will include, remains to be determined. Kraken also confirms this temporary suspension only affects residents of Japan.

It also appears Kraken isnt the most popular trading platform in Japan. Its BTC/JPY pair accounted for 0.07% of the companys overall trading volume in the past 24 hours. The company also provides an ETH/JPY pair, which is even less popular. There are dozens of exchanges active in Japan who also provide access to both Bitcoin and Ethereum in exchange for the Japanese Yen.

No Impact on the Mt. Gox Process

Unlike most other exchanges, Kraken is allowed to operate in Japan without a license. As such, the company is a bit of an odd creature in the country. It is this lack of oversight which may hurt the platforms popularity as of right now. The exchange will remove its services from the country by the end of June 2018.

As is always the case, speculation runs wild when news like this is made public. Considering Krakens position in the ongoing ......

How To Clear Seriously Blocked Sinuses Naturally In 1 Minute "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Joe Martino; Collective Evolution

Having clogged sinuses isnt fun. You cant breath, you cant smell, your head hurts, and your voice sounds funny. Finding relief when you have clogged sinuses is usually like finding a million dollars on the ground its amazing!

The causes for nasal congestion can range greatly, and you dont have to be sick to be congested. Many people will experience congestion from allergies, temperatures, dust, smoking, spicy food, and air particles.

Recently I was at Contact in the Desert in California and I found myself having clogged sinuses from the blowing sand and dry air. Within two days, I couldnt breathe at all out of one side of my nose and my sinuses got blocked up, causing my face and head to hurt. I needed a solution.


After trying to blow my nose over and over again, I turned to the internet for relief. Sure enough, Google came through.

I found a video by Dr. Adam that quickly and easily explained how to clear sinuses in about one minute using just your fingers and no, they dont have to go in your nose. Sure enough, I had relief from the pain the blockage was causing, and I could breathe!

Is Curing Patients a Sustainable Business Model? "IndyWatch Feed Health"

From CNBC: A recent report by Goldman Sachs analysts questions whether curing patients, as opposed to providing them with chronic therapies, could pose a financial risk for biotech companies.

The potential to deliver one shot cures is one of the most attractive aspects of gene therapy, genetically-engineered cell therapy and gene editing. However, such treatments offer a very different outlook with regard to recurring revenue versus chronic therapies, analyst Salveen Richter wrote in the note to clients Tuesday. While this proposition carries tremendous value for patients and society, it could represent a challenge for genome medicine developers looking for sustained cash flow.'

Coinone Looks Beyond South Korea to Global Market in Indonesia "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

South Koreas third-largest cryptocurrency exchange, Coinone, has set up in Indonesia bucking the trend of exchanges either branching out or going under in the hard knocks market.

Coinone Goes Global in Jakarta

South Korea was one of the bellwethers of the cryptocurrency market last year with one in five bitcoin transactions being handled in KRW even though it traded at a 20% plus premium.  Today though despite it still being one of the largest spaces in the market, severe regulatory practices have reduced trading to only 5 -10%  of what it was in January.

According to Business Korea the squeeze on the market since January highs has caused some Korean exchanges to either expand their service base or shutter their shops. Coinone, Koreas third largest exchange, has decided to pack up and go overseas. The company announced that on April 16 Coinone Indonesia was entering the global cryptocurrency market. Based in Jakarta the company has submitted its preliminary registration and plans to start providing services to registrants from the end of May.

Coinone announced on April 16 that the company has made its entry into the global cryptocurrency market, establishing Coinone Indonesia in Jakarta. After the first preliminary registration from this date it plans to launch the service to registrants by the end of next month. Trading will be made available in 6 cryptocurrencies initially; Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Litecoin and Qtum.

With a population of 260 million Indonesia has the largest population in Southeast Asia and, according to a previous report on NewsBTC , INDODAX the largest Indonesian cryptocurrency exchange which is set to overtake the Indonesian Stock Exchange in investor numbers.

Indonesia Struggles With its Own Regulatory Problems

Despite the diminished trading volume in South Korea since January, a re-launch in Indonesia which is experiencing its own regulatory growing pains is a bold move for any exchange looking to expand into the global market.

Bank Indonesia announced it does not recognize any digital currency as legal tender earlier this year, compelling all parties to avoid owning, selling or trading in them. This has paved the way for the kind of regulatory struggle which has been enacted ac...

Bright Light Therapy More Effective Than Medication Alone for Bipolar Depression "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A new randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial has found bright light therapy to be a powerful intervention that could provide an alternative to medication for people with bipolar depression. Two-thirds of the people receiving the light therapy improved, compared with one-fifth of those who took only medication. The research was led by Dorothy Sit at Northwestern University and published in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

The study included people who had a diagnosis of either bipolar I or bipolar II disorder, but who were not currently meeting criteria for a manic or hypomanic episode. All participants were taking antimanic medication, also known as mood stabilizers (e.g. lithium).

Many (78.3%) of the participants were also taking antidepressant medications, and the researchers made sure that both the control group and the intervention group had similar numbers of people taking these drugs. All participants also met criteria for continuing depression, despite their current medication regimen.

One group of 23 participants was exposed to 7000-lux bright white light daily, between noon and 2:30 pm. They initially began at 15 minutes of light use, then gradually increased to the target dose of 60 minutes per day at week 4. The other group received a placebo light intervention that was described as 50-lux dim red light.

The difference in improvement is startling. 68.2% of people who received the bright light intervention no longer met criteria for depression (what researchers refer to as remission), compared with only 22.2% who received a placebo light intervention.

This difference was not due simply to an improvement in sleep quality, as sleep was observed to improve equally for both groups. There was no difference in side effects between the two groups, indicating that light therapy did not create any additional adverse events. No one experienced a hypomanic or manic episode.

The improvement in depressive symptoms appeared to occur between weeks 4-6 for most participants, which the researchers theorize is due to reaching the 60-minute per day dose of light at week 4 (see graph below).

Particularly surprising is that, despite most participan...

Aspartame Doesn't Increase Lean Adults' Weights, Appetites, Or Blood Sugars, In 12 Week Randomized Controlled Trial "IndyWatch Feed Food"

So what happens to healthy, lean, adults, if you randomly assign them to consume 0mg, 350mg or 1,050mg of aspartame daily for 12 weeks?

Nothing.

Well at least nothing if you're measuring their weights, body fat percentages, appetites, blood sugars, insulins, incretins (GLP1), lipids, fasting leptin levels, or liver function tests. Those were in fact all the things that were looked at in this recent study.

Sorry chemophobes.

(but conspiracists can still rest easy knowing that funding was provided in part by aspartame producer Ajinomoto, and of course it would be nice to see this study repeated with study participants with obesity)

(And if you're interested here's a recent review that looked at both observational studies on non-nutritive sweeteners and randomized trials looking at non-nutritive sweeteners which found that while observational studies suggest risk to weight, to date, randomized trials, now including this one it would seem, don't).

Future Dental Product May Cure Cavities "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Joe Battaglia; Prevent Disease

Researchers at the University of Washington have designed a convenient and natural product that uses proteins to rebuild tooth enamel and treat dental cavities.

The "modern" theory of dental disease suggests that we have an almost total lack of power and responsibility concerning this condition. Children's cavities are on the rise, and children today who have cavities are requiring more expensive and extensive dental surgery to hide the problems of dental decay.

The research finding was first published in ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering.


"Remineralization guided by peptides is a healthy alternative to current dental health care," said lead author Mehmet Sarikaya, professor of materials science and engineering and adjunct professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Department of Oral Health Sciences.

The new biogenic dental products can -- in theory -- rebuild teeth and cure cavities without today's costly and uncomfortable treatments.

Woolly mammoths return from dead: Furry mammals could be CLONED "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


Harvard University scientist George Church and his team have been using DNA recovered from one of the long-extinct beasts that was found perfectly preserved in Arctic ice after dying 42,000 years ago.

Professor Church said that by merging genes from the woolly mammoths with that of elephants, their species may be resurrected.

Speaking to The Sun Online, he said: We have already revived dozens of genes and are testing them in elephant cells.

We are focusing on a reviving mammoth genes and making a mammoth/elephant hybrid and help them spread to vast wild, arctic climates.

Professor Church and his team of scientists are using a gene-editing technique to cut and paste strands of DNA into elephant stem cells to eventually develop the embryo of a woolly mammoth.

He believes that within two years he can grow a woolly mammoth and elephant hybrid within an artificial womb as opposed to using a female elephant as a surrogate mum.

If the cloning attempts are successful, they would be taken to Pleistocene Park, a 20,000 hectare zone in the furthest stretches of remote Siberia, currently being developed by Russian scientists in a bid to recreate an Ice Age ecosystem.

Park Director and scientist Nikita Zimov had previously told The Sun Online: By the time mammoths will be cloned, if theyre cloned and brought to the park, we will have a system.

Theyll eat shrubs, break down shrubs. Theyll trample down the grass, eat the grass. The park is to show animals can transform the vegetation.

Alongside once again seeing woolly mammoth herds plodding about the Arctic, it is hoped the mammals will also create an environment that could prevent Siberias permafrost melting and then unleashing billions of tons of lethal greenhouse gases.

Permafrost is ground at or below the freezing point of water (0C) for more than two years.

This melting process has been dubbed the methane bomb because should it occur, it would dramatically impact on climate change, melt the ice cap and potentially flood countries around the world.

Bubble-like mounds have been emerging with some bursting and spewing out toxic gas.

But much of the methane is still trapped underneath by the permafrost layer which is disappearing quickly and threatening to release the gas at any given time.

If the mammoth/elephant hybrids could be brought back to life, Professor Church believes they could repopulate these freezing wastelands and help lock in the deadly toxins.

The Roman Dodecahedra, Mysterious Ancient Artifacts Whose Purpose Remains A Mystery "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"


More than a hundred dodecahedra have been found by archaeologists throughout the territory of the ancient Roman Empire, including countries such as Spain, Italy, France, even in outlying areas such as Germany, Wales, and Hungary.

According to the archaeological records, they date back to the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD, but their exact purpose is still a mystery which experts have not been able to solve.

The Roman Dodecahedra are small hollow objects made of bronze or stone in the shape of a Dodecahedra, twelve pentagonal faces, each of which has a circular hole in the center, of different diameters.

The first Roman Dodecahedra was found in 1739, and since then they have continued to appear all over Europe.

Ancient Roman dodecahedron found in Atuatuca Tungrorum (Tongeren). Its a small hollow object made of bronze or stone with a dodecahedral shape. Its use is still unclear and several proposals have been made including an aid for knitting gloves and a device for determining the optimal sowing date for winter grain. Collection of Gallo-Romeins Museum, Tongeren, Belgium. Image Credit: Wikimedia Commons. 

Most of these curious objects were found in France and Germany and range in size between 4 and 11 centimeters in diameter.

However, no mention has been made of these objects in contemporary sources, nor any representation in mosaics, reliefs or other artistic expressions which raises numerous questions.

Their exact purpose has been debated for more than 2 centuries and some archeologists argue that the mystery objects may have used as supports for candles since experts have found wax remains on a few of them.

But the theories also point to other possible utilities, such as for example being a kind of dice for some sort of ancient game.

Some authors have even proposed that these artifacts may have been used as measuring instruments to calculate distances (diopters), and even determine the appropriate date for planting grain in winter, calibrate water pipes or religious objects or artifacts used in different rituals. However, some experts have proposed that these mysterious objects may have had a much simpler purpose and may have been used as a childrens toy.

However, given that fact that most of these objects were found mainly in the peripheral areas of the Roman empire, where the presence of Roman legions constituted the main group of Roman citizens, the Roman dodecahedrons may have been a military artifact.

Its use as...

The Nibiru Cataclysm, The Anunnaki And Planet X "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

by Ivan; Ancient Code

Nibiru is the name of a celestial body of the Babylonian mythology. According to their mythology, Nibiru was a mighty celestial object associated with the God Marduk.

Nibiru means place that crosses or place of transition.

In many Babylonian texts, it is identified with the planet Jupiter, although on tablet 5 of the Enma Elish it is associated with the polar star.

Are the Ancient Anunnaki the missing link in our amnesic history?

In the last couple of decades, it has been proposed that Nibiru is a planet orbiting our sun beyond Neptune and which crosses the orbits of the rest of the planets. However, despite these claims, the scientific community denies the existence of such a planet categorically and has made multiple statements in this regard.

In an article written by the Skeptical Inquirer, Morrison wrote that for astronomers, persistent statements about a nearby but invisible planet are simply absurd.

This hate towards Nibiru may originate from the fact that on numerous occasions claims have been made that a rogue planet on a 3,600-year orbit is about to enter the inner solar system and visit a catastrophe upon Earth.

Giga Watt A Month Later is Still a No Go! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A month ago we have shared our negative experience with Giga Watts Miner Hosting Services and we just wanted to update you on the topic and still warn you to stay away from their miner sales and hosting services. Our December and January batches of miners that we ave paid for back in November last year are still not deployed and not working and up until a few days Giga Watt was still selling new mining hardware for who knows when to be deployed (they have apparently stopped). Our disappointment with their services continues and it will get even worse for sure ad they are just delaying and delaying month after month

The WTT tokens are a bit better, but our disappointment extends there as well. There is still no price-varying real market for renting the tokens (you cannot use the tokens when your miners do not get deployed for month already). You still need to rent out all your tokens and you cannot rent them all even at the lowest price, so you are loosing on that as well no matter how much tokens you get you can rent maximum about 70% at the lowest price or less if you increase the price. Recently the company has risen the prices for electricity with 20% in favor of the token holders, but nothing really changes that much, at least your tokens should earn you a bit more. So we would also recommend not to go investing in WTT tokens now as well.

PR: Innovative Social Network Monoreto Launches Pre-ICO "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Social Network Monoreto Launches Pre-ICO

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

On May 10, 2018, the pre-ICO of the new social network Monoreto starts. The project introduces a blockchain, which will help social network users to monetize their content and their interactions with each other. This social network can disrupt the media landscape: any user will be rewarded, and influencers will get more opportunities for development.

The revenue of social networks depends on user data: content, history of actions on the network and their interactions with each other. The developers of the network do not produce those products. They just support the platform, store user data and sell network audience to advertisers.

Although users create content and share their valuable data, they do not receive revenue and even become objects of manipulation. They miss important and interesting information from their friends in their feeds. Instead, they find ads and posts sponsored by brands. Popular authors also promote goods and services explicitly or in a hidden manner. A survey conducted by Harris Insights & Analytics (Harris Poll) shows that in the 16-19 and 20-39 age groups, 74% of people dont want to see messages from brands in their newsfeeds. Over a half (56%) of users became less active in social networks or completely left services because of excessive advertising.

The social media crisis is obvious: users are disappointed because they do not get what they want, content authors do not receive the fair reward, and advertisers pay for annoying ads, which does not sell.

Monoreto, the next generation social network, introduces an innovative solution. The blockchain technology will help to maintain the process of user interactions. Tokens of the social network will allow conducting transparent and open transactions, bound to usual actions in social networks.

First, the developers of the project care about authors of high-quality content. Post...

4th Pillar: Using Blockchain Technology to Solve Many of the Well-Known HR Pains "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Handling human resources presents a challenge to almost all organizations, irrespective of their size. And at this time, most businesses run the same Human Resources processes but mostly manually which makes it hard for the people in charge to comb through data stored in outdated systems. Even with the hard work, they will be left with data that lacks validity and consistency.

Even if various disparate tools that affect human capital are aligned, there is no guarantee that the data contained within them is easily accessible, shareable and visible to all relevant stakeholders.

4th Pillar is a blockchain based project that aims to harness the power of blockchain technology to disrupt the way recruitment has been managed by finding a solution in the complicated world of HR and ultimately simplifying the entire HR industry.

Drastically Reduce the Use of Paper.

The human resource and finance connecting hub, 4th Pillar (presale coming soon), is designed for both individuals and organizations. Built with over 22 years of experience in the HR industry, the 4th pillar is based on the Ethereum blockchain and teleportation service, utilizing smart contracts, wallets and IPFS protocol to solve day-to-day problems experienced by individuals and their employers. The idea is to drastically reduce the demand for paper, which is expected to put more pressure on forest ecosystems, as well as help reduce the carbon and ecological footprint.

To achieve this vision is not going to be an easy task. 4th Pillar is facing three main challenges including lack of a wallet system capable of sending multiple payments from organizations to individuals, lack of a mainstream blockchain based B2B and B2C work related sensitive document transfer, and lack of an online recruitment platform based on verified data.

The solutions to challenges are the creation of a 4th Pillar decentralized blockchain system for employers to reward and transfer FOUR tokens directly to their employees using a self-managed 4th pillar decentralized personal savings wallet. 4th Pillar will also use Blockchain and Interplanetary File Systems (IPFS) to provide efficiency in the secure transfer of valuable documents through its network directly from employer to employee. This will make room for creating a digital employee professional identity database with automated evaluation system to recruit based on verified work history.

Coinsecure Confirms Victims of Recent Hack Will be Refunded "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Crypto exchanges have different responsibilities to their clients. In the case of a hack or theft, they need to refund their customers. Coinsecure, an Indian Bitcoin trading platform, will do exactly that. The recent theft affecting several users forces the company to reimburse victims out of their own pocket.

The Coinsecure Theft Investigation

Coinsecure was recently hacked by an unknown assailant. During this theft, the company lost 438.318 Bitcoin, valued at around $3.3 million. This money has been taken from the companys Bitcoin wallet. Rumor has it this may have been an inside job by company CSO Dr. Amitabh Saxena.

Official complaints registered with police authorities clearly implicate Saxena as the culprit. It is unclear if there is any evidence to make those charges stick. With the money still not being located, the investigation will continue for some time to come. Coinsecure even announced a 10% finders fee to its community for anyone who can help recover the money in question.

Given Bitcoins lack of privacy and anonymity, finding the money should not be difficult. That is, assuming the money has not been converted to another cryptocurrency with anonymity features. Additionally, the money may have already been converted to fiat currencies. For now, the attempt to recover the funds is still in full effect.

Repaying Affected Customers

While this process takes place, Coinsecure has made it clear they will reimburse customers in one way or another. Option one is more favorable as it would result in the stolen money being returned. If that were to happen, customer balances will be corrected by the exchange automatically. The other option will work as follows:

However, if recovery of siphoned BTC is not possible, then we will apply the lock in rates as of the 9th of April, 2018. 10% of the Coin Holding Balance will be refunded in BTC and 90% will be returned in INR.

UK Report: ISIS Used Chemical Weapons 52 Times In Syria "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"



ISIS, financed by Saudi Arabia and the West, used chemical weapons at least 52 times in Syria, according to Londons IHS Conflict Monitor. 

The IHS analysis, released in 2016, details how ISIS routinely used chemical weapons against enemy forces on the battlefield in Iraq and Syria.

Newsweek.com reports: The group captured large swathes of territory in both countries in a lightning-fast offensive that began in 2014, capitalizing on instability in Syria because of the six-year civil war and sectarian dissatisfaction in northern and western Iraq. It has used weapons fitted with hazardous materials predominantly against Kurdish forces, both in northern Syria and in northern Iraq.

Of the 52 times it has used chemical weapons, 19 of those attacks came in and around the Iraqi city of Mosul, according to the London-based defense consultancy IHS Janes.

An Iraqi-Kurdish coalition, supported by the U.S. military, is battling to liberate Mosulfrom ISISs grip and the operation is now in its fifth week. The reports conclusions represent the largest estimate of ISISs chemical weapons attacks thus far, basing them on ISIS propaganda and news reports.

As the Islamic State loses ground around Mosul, there is a high risk of the group using chemical weapons to slow down and demoralize advancing enemy forces, and to potentially make an example ofand take revenge oncivilian dissidents within the city, said Columb Strack, senior analyst and head of the IHS Conflict Monitor.

IHS said that the chemical threat that ISIS poses in and around Mosul is likely from chlorine and mustard agents as well as radiological dispersal devices known as dirty bombs, but to a lesser extent.

With the beginning of the Iraqi offensive to recapture the biggest city that ISIS has captured to date, the group may be shifting its chemical weapons-mak...

Star Citizen - ILM or Internal Lighting Model - too many fake Hollywood-pop lights "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Before I get onto my lighting polemic, ID Tech 666 is used to power Doom 2016, but Star Citizen looks better ... where it fails is in the Attentnion To Detail, and I don't mean in the machinery and guns and world and stuff, "I mean the gaming sandbox," and the general functionality of the interactive world and the re-spawning never-die hyperspace-generated-everything nature.

While it might seem okay to translate first-person or story-based narrative into a MMO, it doesn't work that way. An MMO is a place where 'the player' generates the content. It's not a place where a player is led by the nose. CIG, Squadron42 is already doing that.

The dev-team should be going back in and ripping out the guts of Star Citizen to re-establish what it should actually allow as a SGE or Sandbox Game Engine. Real sandbox innovations like the first-implementation-of skeletal foot align that's recently made it into 3.1.2. Hopefully in the future this'll be expanded to include foot roll and stumble because currently you can run all over a rock-strewn moon with narry a foot misplacement. And reconnect the player with his shadow, it's all a bit floaty since the new-tech was added. And downdraft from a taking-off ship, based on your crouch or standing cross section... shouldn't that have some effect? But then you have to make 'turbulence' a global sandbox factor and not some coding spot effect.

I mean that's what Star Citizen is, right? An MMO game engine, designed to run a galactic sandbox. So, make it do that. Decide whether it's a manual-activity game or a think-activity game - yes, there is a real difference to how any player interacts with either game.

When will ladders work like 'any normal animation path'?

When will real now-ness be embedded in the character i.e. carry what you can until you can restock at a suitable place?

When will they sort out the internal lighting... when I was character-art lead on Empire Games' GhostMaster, the first thing we got the assigned landscape guy to do was strip out all the old and extraneous Hollywood-pop lights that were just sitting there colouring a wall or corner for no other reason than 'because it could'. We eventually went with a pseudo-raytraced i.e. pre-generated light maps with active light switches, model that stored a lovely bitmap per room-render area. You could turn this lightmap on and o...

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis ETC/USD Could Extend Gains "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ethereum classic price corrected lower after trading as high as $17.01 against the US dollar.
  • There was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $16.60 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair (Data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair remains supported on the downside above $15.80 and it could resume its uptrend.

Ethereum classic price is positioned in a bullish trend against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETC/USD may trade in a range above $15.80 before it makes the next move.

Ethereum Classic Price Resistance

There was a decent upside move in ETC price above the $16.00 level against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair traded towards the $17.00 level where sellers emerged. A high was formed at $17.01 from where the price started a downside correction. It moved down and broke the $16.80 and $16.60 support levels. Moreover, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $15.05 low to $17.01 high.

More importantly, there was a break below a connecting bullish trend line with support at $16.60 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair. However, the decline found support near the $16.50 level, which is a key pivot zone. There is also a bullish trend line on the same chart with current support at $15.80. At the moment, the price is testing the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $17.01 high to $15.62 low. A break above the $16.40 level is required for an upside acceleration towards $17.00 or even higher.

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis ETC USD

The chart above suggests that the price is positioned nicely above the $15.80 support. As long as ETC is above $15.60-80, it may trade in a range before making the next move higher.

The 304-page memoir gives you an inside look at Comey's long career in law enforcement. But it's mostly gaining attention because of what Comey has to say about his controversial interactions with Donald Trump--interactions which, The New York Times correctly observes, set "in motion a cascade of political and legal consequences that led directly to the appointment of Robert S. Mueller III as special counsel overseeing the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election."

You can now buy A Higher Loyalty in hardback and Kindle formats. Or if you start a 30 day free trial with Audible.com, you can download two free audio books of your choice.

Undercover author finds Chronicle newsroom workers peed in bottles under harsh deadlines and threats of violence "IndyWatch Feed Satire"

Comedy writers work long hours without bathroom breaks at chronicle.su

Rushed Chronicle staff reportedly pee into bottles as theyre afraid of time-wasting because the toilets are far away and they fear getting into trouble for taking long breaks.

  • An undercover author told Vice that workers at a chronicle.su sweat-house peed in bottles because they were scared the long trip to the outhouse would cause them to miss targets.
  • The author, James Galloway, found that staff members feared being disciplined for missing deadlines.
  • A separate survey of Internet Chronicle writers released Monday found that some workers who reported feeling sick from prolonged polonium exposure said they were penalized for taking breaks to throw up outdoors.
  • Internet Chronicle said it didnt recognize the allegations as an accurate portrayal of its forced labor sweat house working conditions.

Chronicle founder R.T. Sakers may be the worlds most dangerous thrillionaire, with a net worth of about 150 billion bitcoins, but at least some of those working in his newsrooms are apparently so desperate to keep their jobs that they dont even take time to use an outhouse, located a convenient 450 yards away, down a beaten path into the holler.

The author James Galloway went undercover at an Internet Chronicle sweat house in Cuthbert, Ga., for a book on stagnant wages in Lebal Drocer subsidiaries. He found that the sweat houses main reporters, who toil over unlabeled mechanical keyboards typing truth for the idiot masses, had a toilet bottle system in place because the bathrooms were too sparse to get to quickly.

Isis Astara & Cobra ~ Just Stay Calm as the Chaos Seems to Grow "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

TZ here: I have had some computer issues in the past week and not had access to posting here on PFC but all is resolved right now and I am reposting this blog post that I made on my blog on Saturday 14th April.

TZ here:
I was checking something out on You tube and discovered this video which I would like to share with you (with well known German musicians). Its a tribute to the Love between two souls like Cobra and Isis. On Jan 27th this year Cobra asked us to send our loving thoughts and prayers to Isis who was critically ill in hospital after a scalar attack by the cabal. (no names or groups mentioned ) from what I can see this recording was posted on January 28th and on January 29th Cobra sadly informed us of Isis passing over to the Light. The text is so beautiful see english translation below video. Let us all strive to see the Light inside those we love and to cherish them even if they have not yet learned how to be in loving harmonious communication beyond ego I have a ways to go myself I might add.

Isis Astara & Cobra

Let me just remind everyone that might not be aware of it that, without the dedicated amazing work of these two souls, I for one cannot see how we would ever have reached the place that we now find ourselves in. When things started really really getting out of hand for the dark ones, they attacked their favourite enemy of truth Cobra by attacking and murdering the woman that supported, worked with and loved him.

You may or may not be aware that there is a beautiful gift for free on youtube ~ a gift from Isis and Cobra namely the Goddess Spiral Mediation CD in its entirety with three beautiful meditations and music. In these days of the final madness the final rattling of swords I suggest that you just watch quietly knowing that it is the final end game attempt at war by the cabal who are in great panic.

Someone Finally Explained What Just Happened in Syria, and It Will Make You Question Everything "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

On Friday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that he ordered missile strikes on Syria in response to an alleged chemical weapons attack on Douma, a city near Damascus, live on television. Shortly after the announcement the missile strikes began.

The U.S., along with French and British forces, launched 105 missiles into Syria, successfully hitting all three targets. Russias defense ministry reported the following day that the majority of the missiles were intercepted by Syrias air defense system. Nevertheless, the U.S. continues to boast that their mission was accomplished.

Coincidentally, American cable news journalist, Pearson Sharp, found himself in Damascus during the strike.

Barclays Bank Pivots on Infection Study, Now Mulling Crypto Trading Desk "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Insiders say UKs Barclays bank may be investigating opening a cryptocurrency trading desk just a week after releasing a report comparing investors in digital assets to an infected population that would die out soon.

Barclays Investigating Crypto Trading Desk

Bloomberg has reported that Barclays bank is doing an initial assessment to gauge clients interest in the bank opening a cryptocurrency trading desk. Insiders say that the bank is sounding out a potential partnership with Goldman Sachs to create a new Wall Street-centered business.

The bank released a statement saying it had no plans to make such a move. Spokesman Andrew Smith replied in an email saying,

We constantly monitor developments in the digital currency space and will continue to have a dialog with our clients on their needs and intentions in this market, 

Given the risk and progressive manner of entering into a crypto trading partnership, this kind of move would require involvement and approval from the highest levels. Getting Chief Executive Officer Jes Staley and investment bank Boss Tim Throsby on board may not be a problem though as both have been dedicated to reviving earnings in their commercial sectors by investing in higher risk tradings.

Many analysts are calling for a major influx of commercial money into the cryptocurrency market this year but with few existing banking options for the commercial trader, this could put Barclays at the right place at the right time.

The number of hedge funds dealing in cryptocurrency have multiplied by eight times since the beginning of 2017, going from only 37 to 226 in less than a year, but have struggled to find banks to deal with. Money managers and brokers in many cases need to deal with banks because of regulations preventing them from using exchanges to hold and move investments.

If Barclays decides to make the move it will become the first major European based investment bank to open a dedicated cryptocurrency trading desk.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Consolidating above $0.6200 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price corrected lower recently from the $0.7000 swing high against the US dollar.
  • There is a contracting triangle forming with current support at $0.6400 on the hourly chart (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair may consolidate above the $0.6200 pivot level in the short term before it makes the next move.

Ripple price is consolidating gains against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD must stay above the $0.6200 support to continue moving higher.

Ripple Price Range Support

After trading close to the $0.7000 level, Ripple price faced selling interest against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and traded below the $0.6800 and $0.6600 support levels. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.6240 low to $0.6995 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $0.6400 support.

A low was formed at $0.6368 before the price moved back above $0.6500. It is currently trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6971 high to $0.6368 low. In the short term, there could be more range moves above the $0.6200 pivot level before buyers take control. It seems like there is a contracting triangle forming with current support at $0.6400 on the hourly chart. On the upside, a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.6971 high to $0.6368 low may push the price towards $0.6900.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Looking at the chart, the pair must clear the $0.6900 and $0.7000 resistance levels to extend gains. Above $0.7000, the price will most likely trade towards the $0.7500 level in the near term. On the downside, the $0.6400 level is an initial support. However, the most important support is at $0.6200.

The Paradox of Freedom: The Great Humanistic Philosopher and Psychologist Erich Fromm on Moral Aloneness and Our Mightiest Antidote to Terror "IndyWatch Feed Arts"

Modern man still is anxious and tempted to surrender his freedom to dictators of all kinds, or to lose it by transforming himself into a small cog in the machine.


The Paradox of Freedom: The Great Humanistic Philosopher and Psychologist Erich Fromm on Moral Aloneness and Our Mightiest Antidote to Terror

Freedom is not something that anybody can be given, James Baldwin wrote in contemplating how we imprison ourselves, freedom is something people take and people are as free as they want to be. It is hard not to instinctually bristle at this notion we all like to see ourselves as autonomous agents of our own destiny who would never willfully relinquish our freedom. And yet we do beyond the baseline laws of physics and their perennially disquieting corollary regarding free will, which presupposes that even the nature of the faculty doing the relinquishing is not the sovereign entity we wish it were, we are governed by myriad ideological, social, economic, political, and psychological forces that mitigate the parameters of our freedom. Neuroscientist Christoph Koch put it perfectly in his treatise on free will: Freedom is always a question of degree rather than an absolute good that we do or do not possess.

What determines the degree to which we are free is what the great German humanistic philosopher and psychologist Erich Fromm (March 23, 1900March 18, 1980) explores in his first major work, the prescient 1941 treasure Escape from Freedom (public library) a book Fromm deems a diagnosis rather than a prognosis, written during humanitys grimmest descent into madness in WWII, laying out the foundational ideas on which Fromm would later draw in co...

Another important update from Bill in Alaska: Electrosmog and Its Effects on Children and Pregnant Women "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Electrosmog and Its Effects on Children and Pregnant Women

Greetings Gary and readers of The Big Wobble from Alaska.

Last time I touched a bit on pregnancy and Electrosmog. As I recall, I even mentioned autism. Recently I read an ad in a paper that said the odds of a child being diagnosed with autism are 1 in 68. This information came from autismspeaks.org. I know electromagnetic fields cause or contribute to conditions such as alzheimers, cancer, leukaemia, diabetes, and autism. 

I am amazed at the number of pregnant women I see who are walking around talking on their smartphones, or sitting close to others who are using electronic devices. And, I often see children walking around talking on these devices or doing some activity such as a game on some type of a pad. They are all clueless as to the harm this does to their bodies. 

Some time back I measured my eyebrow trimmer that ran off one triple-A battery. It produced 4.6 milliGauss (mG) of Electrosmog. I noted that 1.8 mG has been proven to be linked to childhood leukaemia. The smartphones and other such gadgets almost always put out more mGs as well as high levels of Radio Frequency Radiation (RF). 

As these bombard the human body, what is it doing to an expectant mother and to children? One of the tests I show quite often when Im doing Electronic Pollution Remediation is that ones body voltage climbs when touching another person. So, if you were using an electronic device and sitting close to someone who was also using an electronic device, it would amplify both your bodys voltage as well as increase the mGs and the RF. If you were not using a device but they were, you would still be bombarded. If a new mother is breastfeeding, she is putting that pollution directly into her child. 

Another curiosity I have been pondering is about mothers wh...

The Government Dilemma: How To Tax Something One Pretends Does Not Exist "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Why Bitcoin Sounds Like Money to Your Government

Cryptocurrencies are often criticized for failing to replicate some of the basic functions of fiat money. Governments are always ready to warn you that you cant spend, or save, or trade, or make digital coins. This state of mind, however, is slowly but surely changing, as more benefits become apparent. Paying, saving, investing bitcoin can serve all these purposes, and sometimes that happens with approval from authorities.  

Also read: These Countries Wont Tax Your Bitcoins Too Much

Failing to Be Fiat, Proving to be Money

Policy makers and central bankers often claim that cryptos are unable to perform basic functions of fiat money means of payment, medium of exchange, store of value, and unit of account. Many times, however, they acknowledge one or more of these characteristics, especially when that serves their priorities. Filling the coffers is one such priority, if not the main one, for just about any government. Taxes are the major source of budget revenues for most countries with open market economies. Last years record highs have put cryptocurrencies in the spotlight of this years tax campaign.

The Worst Thing About Dating You Based on Your Zodiac Sign "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

As I have said time and time again, there is a lot we can learn by looking to our zodiac signs be it our Sun signs, Moon signs, or anything in-between. We are all unique in our own ways but sometimes our signs give away more than we realize.

Below you will find a list of each zodiac signs and the things that make them hard to date. Dont get me wrong, we can all get past these things but they are good to know especially when considering what sign you should be dating. If you cannot handle these things you should not be going after these signs, choose wisely. Was your worst thing as accurate as mine was?

Aries

You are too stuck up and into what you want that you forget about the needs of other people. Sure, dating you isnt all bad but you dont think about your partner enough. You get too upset too easily and it causes serious problems.

Taurus

You dont compromise on anything at all. Your partner has to bend to your will and nothing he or she ever does is done exactly as you want it to be. They just feel as if pleasing you is impossible and sometimes, it is.

Gemini

You are confusing as hell. Your partners dont know who they are coming home to because of how conflicting your traits are. Its almost as if they are dating Jekyll and Hyde.

Cancer

Your clinginess knows no bounds. For some, this is a good thing and others just end up feeling suffocated by you. You get too attached too quickly.

Leo

Youre too egotistical. Your partners can never get a word in and you are always underplaying their achievements. THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND YOU!

Virgo

You are too critical of the people you date. You pick them apart without realizing it and have them feeling like shit basically all of the time. Sure, you mean well but as you have probably heard before the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Libra

While you arent necessarily bad in relationships you always choose the worst people to be with. You find yourself surrounded by toxic individuals and never do anything about it. This will eventually lead to your downfall.

Scorpio

You try too hard to please the people you are with. You put them on a pedestal and expect them to be able to live up to all you hoped they would but they never do. You gotta stop doing this for your own sake.

Sagittarius

You use people too much. You treat the people who care about you the most as if they are toys and it always puts you in the worst situations. Could you just try to feel something for once?

Capricorn

Bridging Reality Gaps "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

TZ here; Steve B has invited the author of this article Genele Edey to contribute to Golden Age of Gaia. This article is one that many of you will see the need for as you read the first paragraph. Do you ever feel despite your best efforts to resolve conflict, or even communicate, with a spouse, co-worker, manager, friend, etc., these others live in a completely different reality than you do? I feel that Genele gives us a fresh new way of seeing the entire situation in dealing with communication problems. The old paradigm approach to addressing these issues is conflict resolution, a ridiculous band-aid that does not address the underlying systemic issues, nor reality gaps. I for one will be checking out any coming articles by this lady.

 

Steve: Genele Edey is a transformative coach, certified through the International Coach Federation, and an intuitive and energy healer, living in Seattle, WA. Ive invited her to become a contributor to the Golden Age of Gaia. Welcome, Genele.

Bridging Reality Gaps

http://hmlcoaching.com/blog/2018/4/13/bridging-reality-gaps

Do you ever feel despite your best efforts to resolve conflict, or even communicate, with a spouse, co-worker, manager, friend, etc., these others live in a completely different reality than you do? Its so obvious that you see what you see and why cant the other person see it the same way? It can be frustrating and exhausting until someone surrenders to agree to disagree leaving its own debris of disconnection.

It doesnt matter how trivial or complex the issue is, what matters is the ongoing battle between two or more realities when resolution seems an act of futility. Take for example couples who unconsciously recycle the same argument for the entire course of the relationship without any resolution ever. Think about that.

Whats really happening is what I refer to as reality gaps, a very real experience with a neuroscientific explanation. When we are unaware of the existence of reality gaps its like sharing a room filled with enormous invisible elephants with droppings of anger and resentment. Lack of awareness and understanding of reality gaps creates assumptions and separation. The assumption that we see reality the same way feeds competition and the addiction to being right. WRONG.

Tooth decay sparks move to add fluoride to Darlingtons water "IndyWatch Feed Health"

A MOVE to introduce a mineral to the water supply in a town where more than a third of five-year-olds have one or more decayed, filled or missing teeth has been revealed.

Some 63 years after being invited to take part in a five-year trial to test the benefits of adding fluoride to the water supply, Darlingtons council looks set to be urged to do so by one of its committees.

When it rejected the scheme in 1955 members of Darlington Town Council said they feared they were making a mistake, but residents did not all want fluoride in their water.

Seven years later, the Ministry of Health published the studys results, which found there had been a substantial improvement in the teeth of young children in the areas which agreed to the study and no evidence of harm from fluoridation had been discovered.

At a meeting of the councils children and young people scrutiny committee members heard a proposal to introduce fluoride to the towns water supply was being drawn up following a study which exposed stark differences between childrens oral health between areas where the mineral is or is not in drinking water.

Members were told childrens oral health was also closely linked to deprivation, but there were huge differences between the economically similar areas of Darlington and Hartlepool, where the latter has fluoride naturally in the water.

Councillor Anne-Marie Curry said fluoridated water was the least intrusive way of helping people look after their teeth.

She told the meeting: There is still a feeling that there should be a choice. If they dont want the fluoridated water we should suggest they filter it or drink bottled water.

Last year, Dr John Furness, a consultant paediatrician based at Darlington Memorial Hospital, said despite weekly extraction clinics for youngsters in the region, councils were refusing to pay for the fluoride to water because of the cost involved.

Durham County Council has heard while 61 per cent of children were suffering decay in the Woodhouse Close area of Bishop Auckland, just six per cent were in the Chester-le-Street South division, where fluoride has been added to the water supply since the 1960s, at a cost of around 50,000 a year.

However, campaigners say there is no conclusive evidence about the benefits of adding the mineral to the water supply.

After being told about the possible move in Darlington, Professor of Health Policy at Kent University Stephen Peckham said schemes which had seen NHS staff support families were far more effective than fluoridation....

Cardano Climbs Higher as Binance Expands ADA Listings "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Nothing can be a better lift for a cryptocurrency than news that a major exchange will be listing it or expanding trading options. Exchanges do not come much bigger than Binance so the announcement posted on the company website an hour or so ago has given Cardano a long needed lift this morning.

Cardano is already listed on Binance but tradable only in BTC or ETH. Today the Hong Kong based exchange announced that it would be offering ADA/BNB and ADA/USDT trading pairs. BNB is Binances own coin and USDT is Tether which is pegged to the US dollar. This gives traders greater flexibility for buying and selling ADA. It is good news for any altcoin which needs to uncouple itself from Bitcoin, which is pretty much all of them.

Cardano Climbs from a Long Lull

Cardano has had a rough year, falling hard from its giddy peak of $1.26 (8650 satoshis) on January 4 to a 2018 low of $0.13 (1740 satoshis) on March 18. This represents a fall of almost 90% (80% against BTC) in less than three months. It was one of the worst performing altcoins in March.

ADA has been waiting for a boost and it has finally arrived with Coinmarketcap reporting the token trading at 24% higher on the day. Cardano has climbed from $0.21 to almost $0.27 in the past day and is trading strong in Asia at the moment. Over the week the altcoin has performed exceptionably well rising over 73% from $0.15 this time last week. Against Bitcoin ADA is up almost 25% on the day to around 3300 satoshis, the weekly gains are even better at 50% from 2200 satoshis this time last week.

Thai Regulators Asked to Ease New Cryptocurrency Taxes "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Players in Thailands crypto markets have petitioned the Finance Ministry to either delay or waive altogether a combined 22% tax burden aimed at dissuading investors from putting money into ICOs and cryptocurrency within the Kingdom.

Reformers Seek Changes in New Thai Tax Before it Takes Effect

On March 29, a royal decree was handed down to the Finance Ministry outlining new tax guidelines for the cryptocurrency market as was reported in NewsBTC. These new taxes came in the form of a 7% value-added tax (VAT) on all cryptocurrency trades plus a 15% capital gains tax. This 22% levy on cryptocurrency trading was a deliberate measure taken by military controlled Thai regulatory bodies to protect naive traders from losing their money.

Now crypto pundits are asking that the revenue department reconsider the harsh taxes. Proposing a tax policy that will encourage the growth of crypto and blockchain related companies to do business in Thailand, not send them away.

As was reported by the Bangkok Post Thuntee Sukchotrat, chief executive of Jibex, a cryptocurrency exchange owned by JIB Computer Group Co Ltd., is one of the people seeking a change in the tax policy;

Tax could be an obstacle for startups and the fund-raising process, given that startups planning to raise funds in Thailand could opt to look at other places because of stringent regulations here, he said

Jibex is on the verge of launching its cryptocurrency wallet service and will begin trading in June. In order to meet the forthcoming ICO regulations, wallet services using Thai Baht as their currency in the country must have a minimum of B200 million ($US6.4 million) registered capital in order to apply for a license through the Bank of Thailand.

New Tax Will Hurt the Future of Thai Fintech

Among those calling for a rethink on the new tax is Jirayut Srupsrisopa, a blockchain expert, and co-founder of the Thai cryptocurrency exchange coins.co.th. Speaking to the Post he voiced his fears that this kind of regulation sends a message out to the world that Thailand isnt interested in developing its fintech sector. Srupsrisop said,...

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis Can ETH/USD Hold This? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price is trading near a major support at $495-500 against the US Dollar with positive signs.
  • There is an important bullish trend line forming with support at $500 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair must stay above the $495 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average to continue higher.

Ethereum price is holding gains against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is currently above $500 and is eyeing an upside break in the near term.

Ethereum Price Trend

There was a minor downside reaction in ETH price after it made a new monthly high at $538.34 against the US Dollar. The price declined and traded below the $525 support to test the $500 zone. During the decline, there was a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $481 low to $538 high. However, the downside move was protected by the $500 support zone and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, there is also an important bullish trend line forming with support at $500 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The trend line support at $500 and 100 hourly SMA are strong supports on the downside. At the moment, the price is trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $538 high to $497 low. To initiate a fresh upside wave, buyers need to break the $515-517 resistance area. The stated $517 level is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $538 high to $497 low. A successful push above the $517 level will most likely take the price towards $540 in the near term.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

Looking at the chart, there are many positive signs since the price is holding the $500 level and the 100 hourly SMA. A break below 100 hourly SMA may perhaps drag the price towards $480.

Privilege of Knowledge and the Duty to Act on Pesticides "IndyWatch Feed Fertility"

By Dr. Mercola

Though he still sees himself as just a little boy who loves frogs, Tyrone Hayes, Ph.D., an integrative biologist at the University of California, Berkeley, has spent a decade feuding with chemical giant Syngenta, manufacturer of the pesticide atrazine. Novartis, which eventually became Syngenta, asked Hayes to use his extensive knowledge of frog hormones to determine if atrazine was interfering with frogs in the environment.

It certainly wasnt what they wanted to hear, but he found atrazine may be chemically castrating male frogs, essentially turning them into female frogs. When Hayes reported some of his troubling findings to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), including male frogs with eggs bursting out of their testicles I thought they would be interested, after all it was the No. 1 selling chemical in the world at the time, he said they stated it wasnt an adverse effect that would prompt them to reevaluate the chemical.

Hayes resigned his contractor position with Syngenta after the company refused to allow him to publish the results of studies they had funded. After resigning, he obtained independent funding to repeat the research, which was subsequently published and found that atrazine causes hermaphroditism in frogs.

Syngenta attempted to discredit Hayes after the damaging research was released. However, as Hayes argues in the TED talk above, he follows Albert Einsteins notion that those who have the privilege to know, have the duty to act.

Atrazine Shown To Be Harmful to Animals, Humans and the Environment

Hayes research hypothesized that atrazine turned on an enzyme (aromatase) that caused testosterone to be converted into estrogen. If youre a male, this means that you wont make sperm, but you will make estrogen, even though you shouldnt.

According to Hayes and colleagues in research published in Nature in 2002, exposure to water-borne atrazine contamination led to gonadal abnormalities such as retarded development and hermaphroditism in 10 percent to 92 percent of male wild leopard frogs. Hayes published another study in 2010 in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), which similarly found:1

Atrazine-exposed males suffered from depressed testosterone, decreased breeding gland size, demasculinized/feminized laryngeal development, suppressed mating behavior, reduced sper...

More Trouble for Organic Products "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

Carrageenan, a food additive extracted from red seaweed, is commonly added as a thickening agent to processed foods, particularly dairy products, certain deli meats and other prepared foods. Since it comes from seaweed, many people assume carrageenan is natural perhaps even healthy and along with conventional foods this additive is often found in natural and organic products.

The problem is that carrageenan is not nutritious, nor is it natural or certified organic. Its a processed additive extracted from seaweed using alkali, and research suggests its highly inflammatory, triggering an immune reaction that may cause inflammation in your gastrointestinal system and related problems.1 As such, organic watchdog groups such as The Cornucopia Institute have called for it to be removed from the U.S. list of approved organic ingredients.

In December 2016, the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), the U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) expert advisory board, voted to do just that. After hearing evidence on the potential health risks and the availability of alternative ingredients, NOSB voted to remove carrageenan from the organic ingredients list. Unfortunately, the vote is technically only a recommendation, and while the USDA has historically almost always sided with their expert panel, in April 2018 they did just the opposite.

USDA Overrules NOSB Advice, Keeps Carrageenan in Organics

The USDA decided to reapprove carrageenan for organic foods, saying in a statement in the Federal Register:2

AMS [USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service] has reviewed NOSB's sunset review document and decided to renew all 17 substances, including carrageenan. AMS found sufficient evidence in public comments to the NOSB that carrageenan continues to be necessary for handling agricultural products because of the unavailability of wholly natural substitutes

Carrageenan has specific uses in an array of agricultural products, and public comments reported that potential substitutes do not adequately replicate the functions of carrageenan across the broad scope of use.

Yet, as noted by Mark A. Kastel, senior farm policy analyst at the Cornucopia Institute, the decision flies in the face of the very reason NOSB was created. This is the latest instance of the   administration...

Rare Gene That Confers Drug Resistance Between Bacteria Now Found in 27 States "IndyWatch Feed Health"

By Dr. Mercola

According to the largest review of the drug resistance problem to date, by 2050 the annual global death toll from antibiotic-resistant disease will reach 10 million.1 At present, an estimated 23,000 Americans die each year from drug-resistant infections, and the death toll will continue to rise until or unless the underlying causes are properly addressed. One significant driver of antibiotic-resistant bacteria is the routine use of antibiotics in agriculture.2

As noted by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy in 2016,3 "The rapid spread of new disease strains ... is one very visible reason why the expansion of factory-style animal production is viewed as unsustainable." In the video above, the late Steve Wing, former associate professor and epidemiologist at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, discusses the human health impacts of factory farms.

Another major contributor to and source of drug-resistant infections is hospitals. According to statistics by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 1 in 25 patients now contracts a hospital-acquired infection4 and many of them are resistant to drug treatment. Most disturbing of all, some infections are now exhibiting "panresistance," meaning they're resistant to every antibiotic in existence.

One particularly nasty panresistant bacterium that is gaining ground is carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE), which produces an enzyme that breaks down antibiotics. Hospitals are the most common source of this infection, which is lethal in about 9 percent of all cases. When the CRE infection affects the blood, the death rate jumps to 50 percent.5

CRE With Rare New Resistance-Conferring Genes Found in 27 States

Tests conducted last year on nearly 5,780 antibiotic-resistant bacterial samples collected from hospitals and nursing homes revealed 1 in 4 samples contained genes known to confer drug resistance, and 221 contained a particularly rare drug-resistance gene that confers a very high level of resistance.6,...

FAN Gets an Exciting Picture From Canada and Another Huge Pledge From a US Benefactor "IndyWatch Feed Health"

Currently our total stands at $49,364 from 331 donors. Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and for everything else you and they are doing to end the reckless practice of water fluoridation.

The TSCA lawsuit* against the EPA has sparked three creative ways to increase money for the legal fund.

The first flare of creativity comes from David Green in Ontario, who sent us this photo of his effort. His local group is Fluoride Free Peterborough. David is a partner, with his brother Ian, in Rocky Ridge Drinking Water Limited. David says, No $50 bills in the bottle yet, but the coins are accumulating.

The second is a challenge is from one of FANs long-time benefactors

  • Will donate $250 when we reach 350 donors,
  • Will donate $500 when we reach 400 donors,
  • Will donate $750 when we reach 450 donors, and
  • Will donate $1500 when we reach 500 donors!

The third is also a challenge from yet another long-time (since the 1970s) fluoridation fighter, who firmly believes that this lawsuit is our best chance ever of ending fluoridation worldwide.

  • Will donate $5,000 if we can get another 100 (from the current 331) supporters to donate $10 or more online.
  • And will donate ANOTHER (!) $5000 if we can get another 100 people who donate $5 or more by check.We all agree that we need more numbers of people on our team to win this lawsuit.

Our goal is to raise $75,000 by May 31. If we make that deadline then we have another generous benefactor and a non-profit organization that have each pledged to donate $75,000 to yield a healthy legal fighting fund of $225,000. Ideally, we would like the burden to be shared by a 1000 people.

How to donate

How to Find Your Happiness Using the Japanese Philosophy of Ikigai "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Ikigai is a Japanese philosophy that we can all learn from. Basically, it means what gets you up in the morning or thing that you live for but it encompasses so much more than just that. You want to think of Ikiagi as an intersection within who you are.

Sure, we have to get up to go to work or take care of our families, but what is the true reason that we continue on? What sits in the middle of your life and is the basis of all that you do? What defines you? How do you keep yourself going? I know, these are all questions most of us do not know the answers to.

Your Ikigai will be at the center of what you are good at, what you can be paid for, what the world needs and what you love. We all have an Ikigai and it indicates the value that we find in our life. It is what makes us feel as if we are worth something. This will be both mental and spiritual depending on how you take things on.

Dont get me wrong the idea itself isnt going to change the world, but it can change your world. If you hate your job or struggle to get out of bed each day remembering your Ikigai will be what pushes you to continue on. It is constant even though the world around you is ever-changing.

This sense of direction you gain from understanding your Ikigai is far more amazing than I can find the words to explain. With that being said, you cannot merely find your Ikigai overnight, it takes a lot of soulsearching and figuring out who you are and who you want to be before you truly understand it.

The more you question yourself the sooner it will come out. Speak to your passion and find your mission. Take notes and write things down. Get to know yourself on a deeper level. For more information on Ikigai and the concept surrounding it please feel free to check out the video below. What really gets you out of bed in the morning?

Tensions Continue to Rise As Putin Issues Grave Warning of Chaos if Syria is Attacked Again "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

In this kind of situation, Russia has responded exactly how we would have and should have expected them to. This warning came just this past Sunday during a telephone conversation with Hassan Rouhani. They both agreed that the western strikes had damaged chances of achieving political resolution in the area and that if it happens again chaos will be unleashed. This all according to Kremlin statement.

For those of you who do not know, on Saturday the US, France, and Britain launched over 100 missiles targeting what Pentagon claims were three chemical weapons facilities in Syria. This in retaliation to the poison gas attack that happened back earlier this month. Whether or not that poison gas attack was carried out by the Syrian government or not is still not set in stone and both the Russians and the Syrian government are denying involvement. As we reported not too long ago Russian officials actually claimed to have knowledge of false flag attack like this one coming so things are a bit too fishy in recent times, to say the least.

According to Reuters, the Kremlin statement said as follows:

Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations.

Meanwhile, Nikki Haley US Ambassador to the United Nations told Fox News:

Were letting Russia know this is not something that we want to be a part of. Its not something were going to tolerate and theyve got to make a decision. Right now, they dont have very good friends, and right now, the friends that they do have are causing them harm.

The international community is telling Russia that either you make a decision on how you act and when you act, or the rest of us will make a decision in isolating you.

According to CNBC, Putin believed these airstrikes violated the United Nations charter and were an act of aggression. While we do not currently know what is going to come of all of this but there is a lot more going on than we are aware of.

For more information on this and things going on in Syria please check out the videos below and try to keep yourself as informed as possible. We are facing some very terrifying things and as the year goes on tension is only going to grow, how much can we all handle?

A Diabetes Vaccine Has Been Announced and the Entire World Needs to Know! "IndyWatch Feed Uncanny"

Millions of people worldwide suffer from diabetes. For those who may not be aware, diabetes is a metabolic disease that caused the body to be unable to produce insulin or enough insulin thus causing high levels of glucose in the blood.

However, one vaccine that has already been FDA approved as a form of treatment for bladder cancer might be the answer to this growing issue. In trials using mice, this vaccine has proven to be quite effective in reversing type 1 diabetes as it can and does eliminate problematic white blood cells that lead to diabetes.

The vaccine I am referring to is known as Bacillus Calmette-Guerin (BCG) and it is currently in its second phase which it was tested to see if it was as effective in humans as it has been animals. If these findings hold true then it will mean that BCG is able to regenerate insulin-secreting cells in the pancreas and that we could have been using it in this way many years ago since this vaccine has been in place since the early 1900s.

Immunology researcher Denise Faustman of Massachusetts General Hospital who led this trial and others told JDRF as follows:

We think were seeing early evidence of effectiveness. This simple, inexpensive vaccine attacks the autoimmunity underlying type 1 diabetes.

We found that even low doses of the vaccine could transiently reverse type 1 diabetes and this was in patients who have had the disease for 15 years.

Our measurements showed that autoimmune T cells that destroy the islet cells died, and we saw evidence that insulin production was restored.

Results thus far from this FDA-approved clinical trialed testing were presented at the 75th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association. This data shows that it really makes a huge difference. While this trial is not quite over it has been quite promising thus far. You can learn more by clicking here or checking out the video below. What do you think, could this actually turn out to be a vaccine for diabetes?

New Studies Link Cell Phone Radiation with Cancer "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Does cell phone radiation cause cancer? New studies show a correlation in lab rats, but the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality. The ionizing radiation given off by sources such as x-ray machines and the sun boosts cancer risk by shredding molecules in the body. But the non-ionizing radio-frequency (RF) radiation that cell phones and other wireless devices emit has just one known biological effect: an ability to heat tissue by exciting its molecules. Still, evidence advanced by the studies shows prolonged exposure to even very low levels of RF radiation, perhaps by mechanisms other than heating that remain unknown, makes rats uniquely prone to a rare tumor called a schwannoma, which affects a type of neuron (or nerve cell) called a Schwann cell. The studies are notable for their sizes. Researchers at the National Toxicology Program, a federal interagency group under the National Institutes of Health, tested 3,000 rats and mice of both sexes for two years. Investigators at the Ramazzini Institute in Italy were similarly ambitious; in their recent study they investigated RF effects in nearly 2,500 rats. The studies evaluated radiation exposures in different ways. Yet they generated comparable results. The strongest finding connected RF with heart schwannomas in male rats, but the researchers also reported elevated rates of lymphoma as well as cancers affecting the prostate, skin, lung, liver and brain in the exposed animals. Rates for those cancers increased as the doses got higher.

Note: The National Toxicology Program study came to light in 2016 after scientists posted some of its preliminary findings to a public website. For more along these lines, see concise summaries of deeply revealing news articles on the risks of cell phones and wireless devices.

Supreme Court shields a police officer from being sued for shooting a woman in her front yard "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

The Supreme Court on Monday shielded a police officer from being sued for shooting an Arizona woman in her front yard, once again making it harder to bring legal action against officers who use excessive force, even against an innocent person. With two dissents, the high court tossed out a lawsuit by a Tucson woman who was shot four times outside her home because she was seen carrying a large knife. Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in dissent the victim did not threaten the police or a friend who was standing nearby. This "decision is not just wrong on the law; it also sends an alarming signal to law enforcement officers and the public," Sotomayor wrote. Since the Civil War, federal law has allowed people to sue government officials, including the police, for violating their constitutional rights. But in recent years, the Supreme Court has erected a shield of immunity for police and said officers may not be sued unless victims can point to a nearly identical shooting that had been deemed unconstitutionally excessive in a previous decision. The justices did not rule on whether officer Andrew Kisela acted reasonably when he used potentially deadly force against Amy Hughes. The court instead ruled [that Kisela] could not be sued because the victim could not cite a similar case. Sotomayor said the majority had revised the facts to favor the officer. "Hughes was nowhere near the officers, had committed no illegal act, was suspected of no crime, and did not raise the knife," she wrote.

Fukushima's Nuclear Waste Will Be Dumped Into the Ocean, Japanese Plant Owner Says "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Toxic waste produced by one of the world's worst nuclear disasters will be dumped into the sea, according to the head of the Japanese company tasked with cleaning up the radioactive mess. Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), told foreign media that nearly 777,000 tons of water tainted with tritium, a byproduct of the nuclear process that is notoriously difficult to filter out of water, will be dumped into the Pacific Ocean as part of a multibillion-dollar recovery effort following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011. The company has yet to deal with the water that was used to cool the plant's damaged reactors, causing it to become tainted with tritium. Tepco wants to release the contaminated water that is being stored in hundreds of tanks at the plant into the ocean. According to Reuters, this is a common practice at functioning nuclear plants. The plan to dump tritium-contaminated water into the sea was met with opposition by local fishermen, who say their industry has suffered enough in the aftermath of the environmental crisis. Dozens of countries and the European Union now ban certain fish imports from Japan following the disaster. As for the rest of the Fukushima prefecture, life has started to resume, albeit slowly. Of the estimated 150,000 who fled, only around 13 percent have come back.

In March, Portugal Made More Than Enough Renewable Energy To Power The Whole Country "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

Last month, Portugal produced more than enough renewable energy to meet the country's entire electrical demand - a feat "unmatched in the last 40 years," according to the Portuguese Renewable Energy Association, or APREN. Renewable power produced in March was equal to 103.6 percent of electrical demand on mainland Portugal. Fifty-five percent of that energy was produced through hydro power, while 42 percent came from wind. The country still used fossil fuels to balance out supply and demand. "These periods were nevertheless fully compensated by others of greater renewable production," [APREN writes]. "It is expected that by 2040 the production of renewable electricity will be able to guarantee, in a cost-effective way, the total annual electricity consumption of Mainland Portugal." For most countries in the world, a fully renewable energy supply still seems like a challenging target. Portugal has made substantial investments in renewable energy sources, as has its neighbor Spain. Some of that spending was cut in 2012, amid austerity measures, and more were scaled back in 2016. But by that point, many renewable energy projects had already been paid off and were operating cost-efficiently. And this week, coincidentally, the Portuguese government put a stop to another energy subsidy - one "worth about 20 million euros a year, most of which goes to fossil fuel plants," Reuters writes.

Danone's North America business hits key social, environmental milestone "IndyWatch Feed Spiritual"

DanoneWave has renamed itself and says it has been certified as a B Corporation. It is now called Danone North America. To be designated a B Corp, a for-profit company must pass a set of standards regarding its social and environmental performance and change its legal structure to become a public benefit company. Danone sought to achieve this certification by 2020, but it came out two years ahead of schedule. While some stakeholders may worry that big changes to become more environmentally friendly will increase costs, Danone North America's larger suppliers have seen the opposite happen. Dairy is one the company's main ingredients and its production can be harmful to the environment due to water usage and waste. The company's largest manufacturing facility has cut its usage. While the initial research involved in reducing water usage was costly, one of the owners of the facility has already seen a huge reduction in costs. Faber said that up to 250,000 gallons of water can be saved per day due to ... new technology. Danone North America sustainable development manager Catherine Queen [said] that there has been a movement to bring the sustainability effort to global suppliers. Global suppliers have been encouraged to move toward more plant-based packaging and pay their workers living wages. Sustainable manufacturing can lower costs significantly and create more room in budgets to increase wages. Costs on the higher executive level have also been cut.

Asian Altcoin Trading Roundup: Top Cryptocurrency is Verge "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

FOMO Moments

The bullish momentum has run out of steam and buying pressure has been exhausted this morning in Asia. Crypto markets have corrected slightly and there is more red than green on the board at the moment. Bitcoin has lost almost 2% but is still just above the key $8,000 level. Altcoins have largely retracted a little bit but many of them are holding steady. As usual one is steaming off towards the moon and performing way ahead of its siblings and today that altcoin is Verge.

According to Coinmarketcap XVG went off like a rocket a few hours ago and is currently trading 18% higher on the day. Verge is currently trading at $0.10 from $0.084 this time yesterday, over the week it has posted solid gains rising around 20% in the seven day period. On the monthly chart XVG has jumped over 200% from $0.032 this time last month. Against Bitcoin Verge has climbed over 20% to 1278 satoshis from 1067 sats this time yesterday. Weekly gains have been pretty slim however as Verge traded around the 1220 satoshi level this time last week.

Many are quick to lambaste these altcoins on social media but there is no disputing the likes of Verge and Tron have been some of the better performing cryptos in recent weeks. The current momentum has come from the imminent announcement of Verges new partner today. A Medium post indicates that the official press release will be made at 10am EST.

In an unorthodox move Verge ran a crowd sale to raise funds in order to secure this new partnership however most of the 75 million XVG tokens were donated by the same company, TokenPay. This is a strong indicator as to who the new partner will be. Either way the altcoin is outperforming all of the rest during the Asian trading session this morning with the possible exception of Cardano w...

  • The pair is placed nicely above $740 and the 100 hourly simple moving average, which is a positive sign.

Bitcoin cash price is holding the $740 support nicely against the US Dollar. BCH/USD may continue to move higher and it could even target a fresh high above $800.

Bitcoin Cash Price Trend

After trading further higher, bitcoin cash price found sellers near $800 against the US Dollar. The price started a downside correction and traded below the $780 and $760 support levels. There was also a break below the 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $721 low to $800 high. However, the downside move found support near a crucial level at $740 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

BCH buyers protected further declines, resulting in an upside move above the $750 level. It has moved above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $800 high to $742 low. However, the upside move is facing sellers near the $770 level. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $800 high to $742 low is also near $770.
