A senior author & conservationist is assaulted by DoC employees in a public car park say two eye witnesses (includes Police Statement)

INCLUDES DR. WENDY POND’S WITNESS STATEMENT TO DoC ASSAULT ON GRAEME STURGEON, COROMANDEL

Author and conservationist, Graeme Sturgeon, was assaulted, his clothing ripped, his face left bloodied, and his car doorhandle broken, by DoC employees on 17 October 2017.

“…the driver’s door was opened, he was hauled out, and punched in the face by a DOC contractor, Mr X, without warning or explanation.”

There were two witnesses, Dr. Wendy Pond, and artist Diana Halstead. They had been told DoC were loading 1080 poison in the middle of Whitianga and had gone to investigate. All three are senior citizens in their seventies. They had done nothing wrong and were in a public car park and were amazed at the scene that confronted them.

I am told the 1080 poison had apparently been stored in the DoC office in the CENTRE OF TOWN, for approximately six weeks, unbeknown to the Mayor of Thames, Coromandel District Council, maybe also unknown to the Fire Chief, and apparently unknown to the other tenants of the building. DoC were caught out breaking all the rules, in other words !

I should add that the New World Supermarket is across the road, Countdown is 24 Joan Gaskell Road, so virtually next door. The 1080 poison was surrounded by food outlets in other words.

As well as this the 1080 poison was apparently stored in another tenant, Platinum Homes’ storage area. Platinum Homes, I am told, knew nothing off this and are furious.

Scientists accidentally admit rapid global warming happened 56 million years ago, LONG before humans, cars and combustion engines

Global warming has been a subject of intense debate for years; there’s no doubt about that. But, it seems that much for the fanfare surrounding “climate change” may be nothing more than simple fear-mongering. Recent research from the University of California at Riverside has pointed to a substantial global warming event — one that occurred some 56 million years ago.

Combined with the cohort of climate scientists who say that the fear of global warming has been greatly exaggerated, it seems that many of the “concerns” about climate change spread by the mainstream media and other alarmists are more myth than they are fact. Who would have thought?

Scientists at the University of California at Riverside (UCR) say that a string of volcanic eruptions occurred when Greenland separated from Europe during the development of the Atlantic Ocean. The team says that these eruptions were the catalyst for a rapid global warming event, which took place 56 million years ago — long before humans came along, and certainly before modern innovations like the combustion engine. Known as the Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, or PETM, the cause of this rapid warming event has been hotly debated. But the UCR team has shown that volcanic activity was the driving force behind the global rise in temperatures nearly 60 million years ago.

Andy Ridgewell, a professor of earth sciences at UCR, explains, “The amount of carbon released during this time was vast — more than 30 times larger than all the fossil fuels burned to date and equivalent to all the current conventional and unconventional fossil fuel reserves we could feasibly ever extract.”

In other words, the amount of carbon released by the massive volcanic events exceeds any and all emissions caused by the human race by many, many times. While the rising temperatures may have taken place over a longer period of time, the fact remains that human pollution equals just a fraction of what was released by the massive volcanic eruptions that took place millions of years ago.

Further, while there was a disruption in the environment, scientists say most species survived the event– either by migrating or adapting to the new climate.

Scientists have been trying their best to push their inane theories about global warming, but research continues to point to climate change as a natural event that has little to do with human activity.

Songbirds Have Lost Their Way Thanks to This Common Pesticide

BirdsBy Heather Callaghan

A groundbreaking study is showing once and for all that despite safety claims, insecticides called neonicotinoids have a direct effect on the health and travels of songbirds.

Inhabitat reports:

Reportedly, this is the first study to show that imidacloprid (neonicotinoid) and chlorpyrifos (organophosphate) — which are two of the most widely-used insecticides — are toxic to seed-eating songbirds.

Said [Christy Morrissey, a professor at the University of Saskatchewan], “Studies on the risks of neonicotinoids have often focused on bees that have been experiencing population declines. However, it is not just bees that are being affected by these insecticides.”

Eng added, “These chemicals are having a strong impact on songbirds. We are seeing significant weight loss and the birds’ migratory orientation being significantly altered. Effects were seen from eating the equivalent of just three to four imidacloprid treated canola seeds or eight chlorpyrifos granules a day for three days.”

Seeds Are Pretreated With Neonics

Many people think they can easily wash pesticides off their foods. And that’s true for certain pesticides and with certain solutions. But it is not true for neonics!

Farmers used to spray them, but now they are typically treated on seeds and become a part of the plant, allowing the farmer to skip inconvenient sprayings. Some farmers will even claim that they can use “less chemicals” as a result, but this is not true for the birds, bees or humans consuming the plant.

Birds are eating some of these treated seeds.

Farmer Witnesses Disturbing Side Effect After Feeding Pigs GMO Feed

gmo-corn-word-735-300-735x300-400x163By Natural Blaze

Jerry Rosman used to farm corn and pigs – now he helps other farmers begin a life of organic farming.

That’s because of a disturbing revelation he had after three years of feeding his pigs his genetically engineered corn crops – fresh off their modified cobs.

He was an ardent follower of Big Biotech and got in line to try GM crops in 1997. Time passed and all of a sudden his sows simultaneously experienced reproductive issues.

Come year 2000, his pigs began having “fake pregnancies.”

That is, 80% of his female pigs appeared pregnant, experienced all the symptoms of pregnancy – but when they went into labor they gave birth to sacks of water!

After years of being bullied or having those he talked to get bullied, Rosman found out he wasn’t alone. We’ve said time and again that Monsanto and other chemical/seed companies constantly blame farmers or thrown them under the bus when their products are revealed to cause major problems. They like to say that it’s a problem of crop management – that the farmers are not following instructions especially when it comes to pesticide use.

Other farmers experienced Rosman’s farming losses but were dismissed by Monsanto et al. Likewise, it appears that employees from Iowa University stationed near Monsanto were silenced because of grants from Monsanto – eerily similar to the plot of the GMO thriller called Consumed – which we highly recommend.

In 2014, we reported that a Danish farmer entered himself into a study to find out what made so many of his piglets deformed and stillborn. The culprit was glyphosate – the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide that is used on its crops that are engineered to withstand the herbicide that would otherwise kill the crops.

Whereas Rosman lost his pig farm and they never recovered their fertility, the Danish farmer was able to recover his pigs when he switched them back to conventional feed.

730,000 Filipino Children Receive Faulty Dengue Vaccine Which Causes Dengue Rather Than Preventing it

dengue-vaccineBy Health Impact News

In a story that is being mostly censored in the U.S. media, vaccine manufacturer Sanofi Pasteur has admitted that their vaccine for dengue (a deadly tropical disease spread mostly by mosquitoes) is defective.

In a press release from France, the pharmaceutical company admitted that the vaccine is harmful to those not previously infected with dengue, and could cause children not previously infected with dengue to contract a severe case of the disease.

Their press release states:

Based on up to six years of clinical data, the new analysis evaluated long-term safety and efficacy of Dengvaxia in people who had been infected with dengue prior to vaccination and those who had not.

The analysis confirmed that Dengvaxia provides persistent protective benefit against dengue fever in those who had prior infection.

For those not previously infected by dengue virus, however, the analysis found that in the longer term, more cases of severe disease could occur following vaccination upon a subsequent dengue infection.

The Philippines was the first country in Asia to approve the vaccine for individuals aged 9 and 45 years old in December 2015.

More than 730,000 Filipino children have received at least one dose of Dengvaxia, the first licensed vaccine for the virus, since the Philippine Department of Health launched the vaccination drive in schools last year.

Newly appointed Philippine Health Secretary Fransisco Duque immediately instructed the Dengue Technical and Management Committee to meet with an expert panel to determine the next course of action.

“The safety of the children vaccinated is paramount, and the Health Department will need to do surveillance of those given Dengvaxia with no prior infection. It’s really a big task,” Duque said.

Sanofi Pasteur’s Wednesday statement was the first time the pharmaceutical company acknowledged that Dengvaxia should not be recommended to individuals if they have never been infected with the dengue virus. The manufacturer said it would ask health authorities to advise physicians and patients of the new information in countries where the drug has been approved.

Dengvaxia is approved for marketing in 11 countries, mostly in Asia and Latin America, where dengue is a leading cause of serious illness and death among children.

“Animals Can’t Feel Pain or Emotions,” Government Votes

23846302_369176293531784_1542926433_n-1By Markab Algedi

Recently, underground but prominent wildlife photographer Richard Bowler got the attention of hundreds of thousands of people when he said the UK government’s vote to reject the inclusion of animal sentience in the European Union Withdrawal Bill is “a vote to say animals can no longer feel pain or emotions.”

That’s because a specific part of the European Union Withdrawal Bill to recognize the sentience of animals, their ability to feel pain or emotion, has been removed while many of the other laws the European Union put into place in the UK will be automatically transferred over to UK law.

A headline from the London Economic reads “Government votes that ‘animals can’t feel pain or emotions.’”

Reading from it:

“The move to reject sentience in the bill has been largely under-reported in the mainstream media despite Michael Gove facing criticism over his high animal welfare pledge.

Eighty per cent of current animal welfare legislation comes from the EU, but after March 2019, European law will no longer apply in the UK.”

He posted this on Facebook:

“So MP’s have voted and in their wisdom, animals can no longer feel pain or emotions. It really beggars belief that in this day and age, this shower of a government no longer recognises animals as sentient beings. None of them could have had a pet dog, greet them when they come home. But it’s not just domestic animals that show love and affection. The photograph shows Rosie and how she greets me, every time I visit her. Are you telling me there’s no emotion there, what you can’t see is the wagging tail and the squeals of excitement as well. All three foxes I care for have built a bond with Maddy our terrier, she is greeted in exactly the same way.

 

It’s not hard to imagine that if bonds like this can be formed inter species, that the same bonds can be formed between a dog fox and a vixen and their cubs. In fact so called pest controllers use this to their advantage, after shooting the vixen they will often wait, knowing the dog fox will show up, to mourn if you like. Anyone who’s seen elephant documentaries when families visit the bones of their dead can not fail to see that there are emotions going on there. Science is showing more and more animal intelligence and emotions and yet our government has yet again ignored it. There can only be one reason to deny animal sentient status, and that is to exploit them.”

Privacy Alert: HP Quietly Installs System-Slowing Spyware On Its PCs Without Consent

hp-privacy-shtfplan-1024x566By Mac Slavo

On the heels of Lenovo’s massive $3.5 million fine for pre-installing adware on laptops without users’ consent, Hewlett-Packard is jumping in with both feet when it comes to installing spyware on its PCs without the consumer’s permission.

According to numerous reports gathered by Computer World, the brand is deploying a telemetry client (a system data that is uploaded by the Connected User Experience and Telemetry component), on customer computers without asking permission.

The software, which was first identified on November 15 of this year, is called “HP Touchpoint Analytics Service” and appears to replace the self-managed HP Touchpoint Manager solution. According to the official productivity description, it features “the tools you need to ensure all your managed devices’ security — and brings you greater peace of mind.” The problem is, it’s installing itself without permission and is wreaking havoc on customers’ systems.

And the consumers are noticing:

On 11/18/2017 Hp Touchpoint Analytics Client was installed on my computer without my concent [sic], I’m assuming it was installed in the background as an update to Hp support or framework. However it happened I don’t appreciate it’s sneaky take over of my computer’s system resources. From yesterday to today it’s been making my computer work so hard I can hear it like cranking away and the light in the back of my computer is flashing rapidly in-tune with the cranking. –HP Forum

HP has not released an official response to the complaints either and it’s not yet clear how the new driver is being installed. It may have come with the latest Windows updates, or via HP and its support assistant processes, but regardless, customers aren’t happy. “I understand that it hoovers all sorts of telemetry data — and I am not willing to share too much of it really, definitely not without my knowledge,” says one user on HP’s forums.

There is a speck of good news, however. According to Engadget, the offending driver can be removed relatively quickly and easily, but against a wider backdrop of repeated privacy scandals, that’s hardly the point and only semi-comforting to those affected.

New Research Finds GMO Herbicides Cause Antibiotic Resistance

E_coli_Bacteria_1200x600By GM Watch

Farm workers in rural areas and in children in urban settings who are exposed to herbicides may be at risk if they are also on antibiotics

The active ingredients of the commonly used herbicides, RoundUp, Kamba and 2,4-D (glyphosate, dicamba and 2,4-D, respectively), each alone cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations well below label application rates, a new study led by researchers at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand has found.

Professor Jack Heinemann of the School of Biological Sciences in UC’s College of Science said the key finding of the research was that “bacteria respond to exposure to the herbicides by changing how susceptible they are to antibiotics used in human and animal medicine.”

The herbicides studied are three of the most widely used in the world, Prof Heinemann said. They are also used on crops that have been genetically modified to tolerate them.

The effect was not seen at herbicide concentrations that are presently allowed for food (called Maximum Residue Limits, MRL). However, the effect was seen at concentrations well below those applied to plants (application rates). Therefore, the authors believe, the effect is most likely to arise in farm workers in rural areas and in children in urban settings who are exposed to herbicides, if they are also on antibiotics.

Prof Heinemann said, “They are among the most common manufactured chemical products to which people, pets and livestock in both rural and urban environments are exposed. These products are sold in the local hardware store and may be used without training, and there are no controls that prevent children and pets from being exposed in home gardens or parks. Despite their ubiquitous use, this University of Canterbury research is the first in the world to demonstrate that herbicides may be undermining the use of a fundamental medicine – antibiotics.”

In addition, the new paper finds that added ingredients (surfactants) that are commonly used in some herbicide formulations and processed foods also cause antibiotic resistance. An antibiotic resistance response was caused by both the tested surfactants, Tween80 and CMC. Both are also used as emulsifiers in foods like ice cream and in medicines, and both cause antibiotic resistance at concentrations allowed in food and food-grade products.

Commenting on the regulatory implications of his team’s findings, Prof Heinemann said: “The sub-lethal effects of industrially manufactured chemical products should be considered by regulators when deciding whether the products are safe for their intended use.”

“More emphasis needs to be placed on antibiotic stewardship compared to new antibiotic discovery. Otherwise, new drugs will fail rapidly and be lost to humanity.”

The researchers first observed herbicide-related antibiotic resistance in their paper published in the American Society of Microbiology’s journal mBio in 2015.

After the paper appeared, Monsanto spokesperson Charla Lord commented that it was still not known whether the active ingredients or the added ingredients in the herbicides were responsible. “It is difficult to separate the effect of surfactants, which are known to have an impact on cultured microbes, from the active ingredients,” she said.

The new follow-up study was conducted in order to answer that very question. It found that both the active and the added ingredients were responsible.

Antibiotic resistance is the cause of nearly a million additional deaths worldwide from infectious diseases, Prof Heinemann says.

“The United States, for example, estimates that more than two million people are sickened every year with antibiotic-resistant infections, with at least 23,000 dying as a result. By 2050, resistance is estimated to add 10 million annual deaths globally with a cumulative cost to the world economy of US$100 trillion. In other words, roughly twice the population of New Zealand will be lost annually to antibiotic resistance.”

Whether these herbicides and their added ingredients act as antibiotics at realistic doses in humans and animals remains to be established experimentally.

Android devices secretly funnel your private location data to Google (even if you have that setting turned OFF)

Information has emerged that devices operating with an Android operating system keep track of their locations. A phone’s location data is continuously tracked, even without the presence of a SIM card or apps running, until it connects to the internet where the data gathered is then sent to Google — all without the user being aware that it already happened.

This information, which was part of an in-depth report for Quartz, reveals that since the beginning of 2017, mobile phones have been collecting addresses of mobile transmitter towers near their area. The addresses are then included in the information sent to the company to manage push notifications and messages. This means that your phone keeps tabs of where you’ve been as long as you’re near a mobile transmitter, and that this information is sent to Google without you even knowing.

A representative for the company confirmed this, stating that the information gathered was part of Google’s efforts to improve message delivery. According to the DailyMail, the representative said that Cell ID codes were never incorporated into the network sync system, so that data was immediately discarded. Currently, Cell ID codes are no longer sent back to Google.

The practice has raised concerns over privacy. Users cannot disable the location-sharing activity of the devices, even after turning off or disabling the phone’s location settings. The practice is not limited to a specific model or brand of phone as well. This means a person who does not want to be located will have no option to assert his privacy.

In addition to this, sending Cell ID codes provides an accurate location of a person at any given time. While the location sent to one cell tower may be insufficient to determine where a phone is exactly, triangulating data gathered from multiple cell towers may be used to pinpoint a mobile phone, or the person using it. This becomes even more accurate in cities, where cell towers are positioned closer to each other. Google has previously admitted to collecting details of people’s Wi-Fi networks in 2010.

The report also comes at the heels of the Supreme Court arguments regarding law enforcement officials’ capability to use location data in tracking people. The case, which will be heard on November 29, will center on the case of Timothy Carpenter, who was convicted based on mobile data gathered from wireless carriers that indicate him to be at the vicinity of two robberies. Outside location service data, the results of the case can have a far-reaching impact to other devices that transmit data to the internet like virtual assistants, or internet of things (IoT) devices such as security systems, to even fitness trackers.

The report notes that while Google does not collect using this practice, advertisers can use location data to target customers. This way, companies can aim specific products to people who are in a specific area. In addition to this, the report also stated that location was still transmitted to Google even if the phone was reset to factory default settings.

Retired Medical Doctor Exposes Deceptive Statistics Used to Justify Billion Dollar Flu Vaccine and Drug Market

By Gary G. Kohls, MD

Flu Shots, Fosamax and Pharmaceutical Fakery: The Common Use of Deceptive Statistics in the Vaccine and Pharmaceutical Literature.

A few years ago, there was a temporary media buzz generated by an article in The Lancet Infectious Disease journal. That highly respected medical journal is, as is true of most such journals, a pro-vaccine, pro-pharmaceutical medical industry publication that is published in London.

The article’s principle author was Michael Osterholm, PhD, MPH, a widely published infectious disease researcher who, prior to his current faculty position at the University of Minnesota, had served in various capacities with the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), including a high-profile role as the MDH’s Chief of the Acute Disease Epidemiology Section. For 15 years of that association with the MDH he served as Minnesota state epidemiologist. Dr Osterholm, who is not a physician, has published over 300 articles and is highly respected in his field.

The article showed that flu vaccinations were far less effective than had been previously believed. In fact, that particular study suggested that the trivalent flu vaccine currently being pushed at that time approached worthlessness.
