(NaturalNews) (Press Release) A Texas patent holder and inventor has launched a collection of 3D-printable objects that function as key components in a non-electric, home-based food grow system that can be operated for pennies. The story of the invention — as well as the 3D-printable parts — is available at the non-profit www.FoodRising.org website.
The Food Rising Mini-Farm Grow Box grows enormous quantities of food without using electricity or soil. It requires no weeding and uses no pumps, motors or complex parts of any kind. It grows highly-nutritious, mineral-rich foods using about 1/20 the water of conventional agriculture and about half the space of soil gardening.
Mike Adams, also known as the “Health Ranger,” developed the system based on the work of Professor Kratky (see below) and gives away the 3D-printable parts via downloadable files at FoodRising.org. Adams is also distributing DIY videos that instruct people on how to build their own systems using inexpensive parts and common tools.
A new study carried out by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF) has found that millions Americans who consume soda every day are putting themselves at risk of developing cancer as a result of an ingredient contained in many soft drinks.
4-Methylimidazole, commonly known as 4-MEI, is a coloring used by soft drink makers to give their beverages that distinctive dark hue. It can be found in many popular soft drinks, including Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Diet Cola.
However, 4-MEI is a carcinogen that has been found to increase rates of malignant tumors when fed to mice and rats in laboratory studies. Despite this research, the FDA has not restricted its use as a caramel coloring agent in food and drinks.
Sampling 110 brands of soda and soft drinks, the Johns Hopkins researchers found levels of 4-MEI ranging from 9.5 micrograms per liter to 963 micrograms per liter, with diet colas generally having higher concentrations.
The study found that the majority of the beverages sampled contained potentially harmful levels of 4-MEI.
“Soft drink consumers are being exposed to an avoidable and unnecessary cancer risk from an ingredient that is being added to these beverages simply for aesthetic purposes,” said senior author Keeve Nachman, PhD. “This unnecessary exposure poses a threat to public health and raises questions about the continued use of caramel coloring in soda.”
A cyberespionage group with a toolset similar to ones used by U.S. intelligence agencies has infiltrated key institutions in countries including Iran and Russia, utilizing a startlingly advanced form of malware that is impossible to remove once it’s infected your PC.
Kaspersky Lab released a report Monday that said the tools were created by the “Equation” group, which it stopped short of linking to the U.S. National Security Agency.
The tools, exploits and malware used by the group—named after its penchant for encryption—have strong similarities with NSA techniques described in top-secret documents leaked in 2013.
Countries hit the most by Equation include Iran, Russia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, India and China. Targets in those countries included the military, telecommunications, embassies, government, research institutions and Islamic scholars, Kaspersky said.
All hard drives from all manufacturers raped wide open to the NSA from day one of manufacture SINCE 2001!
This is about the recent NSA hack discovery by Kapersky, and I have clarified what is going on and removed the confusing, misleading and obstructing content most reports have.
I have long said that there is no way to secure your computer against the NSA no matter what virus scanner you run or how you secure your system, and that Snowden was to a degree a whitewash standing as a limited hold out to prevent the real truth from being known. Kapersky just confirmed this.
Here is what happened:
A decade and a half ago, someone managed to get NSA trojans into all the hard drive manufacturers which infected all manufacturer workstations and manufacturing facilities and then wrote itself to every hard drive ever made at the 12 top manufacturers for the last 14 years AT POINT OF MANUFACTURE. When the firmware was burned in, this virus wrote itself into the firmware at point of production. Ditto for rom as well. Additionally, it wrote itself to the hard drive platters as backup. Because this virus exhibited itself as part of the root product, (which cannot be accessed by any virus scanner or read in any way) it remained totally immune to detection this entire time even when written to the hard drive platters. Kapersky finally hunted it down (most likely by taking new products and doing a linear read of hard drive platters they removed from the hard drives and put in their own custom box.)
Impossible for this bug to exist you say? Nope. Here is how: All bios chips, anything writable, and even rom, has excess capacity that goes beyond the root program. It has to have a little extra space or whatever you write to it will not fit. There are applications that can fill in this excess space with garbage to use it up and prevent writing to it in the future, but if the computer that had such an application had this NSA trojan, obviously the trojan would circumvent it and write itself in instead. This would be especially deadly with ROM chips. At any rate, ALL hard drives have this trojan, at least anything newer than the 90’s.
Given that there’s an unstoppable escalating number of people no longer accepting the general consensus of the masses, more keep questioning those false or dubious authoritative tenets and hidden motives orchestrated by the ruling elite, this does indeed mean deepening trouble’s ahead for the ruling elite with their controlling enslavement agenda.
Indicatively, many mass media outlets continue to experience further slumps in sales, suggesting some of this is proportional to the level of mistrust and lack of confidence given to them as truthful sources for reporting. How long will the meltdown last? Considering it is ruling elite owned and controlled I doubt if we’ll ever really see truthful courageous journalism emerging from mainstream media.
While the same could be said about voting: The decline in voters suggest a growing lack of confidence in political parties as more people realize that the politicians have been bought off, in the pockets of corporations and bankers…
The statement made by 18th century German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer “All truth passes through 3 stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident” has never rung so true for so many.
One of the world’s biggest credit rating agencies has agreed to pay United States prosecutors nearly $1.4 billion to settle claims it defrauded investors ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.
Under the terms of the settlement acknowledged on Tuesday this week, Wall Street giant Standard & Poor’s will pay a total of $1.375 billion in order to settle allegations that it knowingly defrauded investors by manipulating interest rates ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.
S&P’s parent company, McGraw Hill Financial Inc., said in a statement that the agreement consists of two major payments: $687.5 million to the US Department of Justice, and $687.5 million to 19 states and the District of Columbia, settling federal and regional lawsuits filed over the recession.
“After careful consideration, the company determined that entering into the settlement agreement is in the best interests of the company and its shareholders and is pleased to resolve these matters,” reads the statement in part.
The arrangement, S&P said, “contains no findings of violations of law,” ending for now a lawsuit launched almost exactly two years earlier by the Justice Department, in which federal prosecutors alleged the firm “engaged in a scheme to defraud investors in structured financial products known as Residential Mortgage-Backed Securities (RMBS) and Collateralized Debt Obligations (CDOs).”
WASHINGTON — NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams admitted Wednesday he was not aboard a helicopter hit and forced down by RPG fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a false claim that has been repeated by the network for years.
Williams repeated the claim Friday during NBC’s coverage of a public tribute at a New York Rangers hockey game for a retired soldier that had provided ground security for the grounded helicopters, a game to which Williams accompanied him. In an interview with Stars and Stripes, he said he had misremembered the events and was sorry.
The admission came after crew members on the 159th Aviation Regiment’s Chinook that was hit by two rockets and small arms fire told Stars and Stripes that the NBC anchor was nowhere near that aircraft or two other Chinooks flying in the formation that took fire. Williams arrived in the area about an hour later on another helicopter after the other three had made an emergency landing, the crew members said.
(NaturalNews) On Monday the New York State Attorney General announced that testing found four major retailers sell supplements consisting of cheap fillers and allergenic compounds instead of the herbs they claim to contain. Walmart, Walgreens, Target, and GNC are taking full advantage of the lack of regulation in regards to herbals products and selling the public supplements that do not contain the herbs on the label. Instead they are made up of cheap fillers like powdered rice, asparagus and houseplants. Who is supposed to make sure that we’re not ingesting cheap pills that have no medicinal value whatsoever? More importantly, why would these retailers take advantage of their customers like this? It’s dangerous, irresponsible, and ethically wrong. Who does that? Are you surprised?
(NaturalNews) Parents concerned about their vaccinated children potentially contracting measles from unvaccinated children may want to consider the fact that the bigger health threat is technically the vaccine, not the disease itself. Comparative data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) reveal that nobody has died from measles in more than 10 years, while at least 108 deaths reported in VAERS during the same time frame have been linked to measles vaccines.
Many of our older readers probably remember a time when measles wasn’t viewed with the obscene level of paranoid hysterics being witnessed today. Like chickenpox, measles was a common childhood infection that, after running its typically mild course, imparted lifelong immunity in those who contracted it. The risk of serious complications or death from measles has always been overwhelmingly minimal, in other words, with previous generations viewing it as something of a rite of passage.
If you cannot believe a US appeals court would rule that falsifying news is not illegal, just ask Fox News about the facts in this case. The 10 minute video below is very revealing in regard to just how completely corrupted our so called “news” sources are. Mainstream media is simply a tool of the power structure, by the power structure, and for the power structure. Those who use corporate media for their information are either extremely ignorant, not interested in the truth, or both. Unfortunately, this is the case for a very high percentage of populations around the globe. Ignorance will not be bliss for much longer as the walls close in on us all. We should all confidently make the attempt to wake those around us, our lives and our future depend on it.
