0 US Secretary of Transportation LaHood: We’re looking into technology to disable cell phones in vehicles

Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said using a cell phone while driving is so dangerous that devices may soon be installed in cars to forcibly stop drivers — and potentially anyone else in the vehicle — from using them.
“There’s a lot of technology out there now that can disable phones and we’re looking at that,” said LaHood on MSNBC. LaHood said the cellphone scramblers were one way, and also stressed the importance of “personal responsibility.”
The hosts of Morning Joe pushed the secretary about the possibility of requiring scrambling technology installed in vehicles.
“I think it will be done,” said LaHood. “I think the technology is there and I think you’re going to see the technology become adaptable in automobiles to disable these cell phones. We need to do a lot more if were going to save lives.”
LaHood’s appearance coincided with the transportation department’s launch of the “Faces of Distracted Driving,” an online campaign aimed at scaring drivers safe. The awareness initiative features videos of  people who have been injured by distracted drivers.
LaHood has called distracted driving an “epidemic” and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says about 5,000 people a year, or about .001 percent of the U.S. population, die as a result of it. In 2009, however, the NHTSA found that highway fatalities were at the lowest levels since the 1950s. At the time, Lahood applauded the announcement but vowed he “would not rest” until the roads were even safer.
“Am I on a rampage,” said LaHood, who has made distracted driving a top priority of his tenure, in February 2010. “Yes, I am, and why shouldn’t I be?”

0 Scientists find toxic algae in open ocean, botching idea for fighting global warming

Once thought to be a problem plaguing only the coast, causing fisheries closures and wildlife deaths, the research shows that open sea populations also occasionally bloom into a toxic soup.
The scientists found toxin-producing algae almost everywhere they looked within open regions of the Pacific Ocean. The scientists also detected domoic acid, the toxin that the algae produces. The toxicity exploded whenever iron was added to the water, producing a population boom.
"They grew like a fury," said UCSC ocean scientist Mary Silver, who designed the research. "They are really responsive to iron."
Algae blooms visible from the moon grew during previous studies fertilizing waters with iron. Kenneth Coale, director of the Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, led these studies in 1995 and 2002. The toxicity of the blooms could not be confirmed until more sensitive measures were invented.
Even up to 12 years later, algae toxin remained in the iron-enriched seawater samples Coale had in storage.
"It was always a nagging, gut feeling about domoic acid," said Coale. "After teaming up with Mary Silver's group, that nagging suspicion was confirmed."
Since the algae consume carbon dioxide, Coale's research led to proposals to fertilize the ocean on a mass scale to stave off . The discovery of the algae's toxicity throws a wrench into these plans.
"We should use this as a caution," said Silver. "Using as a remedy for global warming would be dangerous."
Domoic acid attacks the nervous system. During blooms, the algae that produces it become a dominant food for small fish and shellfish. Animals higher up in the food chain amass poisonous amounts of the toxin because the algae lodges in the guts of their prey.
"With high algae levels, fish pick them up," said Silver. "With their stomachs loaded with cells, they can be quite toxic."
Harmful occur seasonally along California's coast, leading to a ban on shellfish harvesting between May and November to protect public health. In humans, the toxin attacks the brain, producing confusion, memory loss and hallucinations.
Marine mammals with domoic acid poisoning rarely recover, according to Coale.
"They can't forage; they can't migrate. They get lost and re-strand themselves," he said. "It's pretty much the end of the line for them."

0 Amazing new images from the International Space Station.

Astronauts open up world to Earthlings via photos

Mt. Fuji towering over the beautiful autumn landscape near Tokyo. Captured this photo for my friend Nara-san and our training team in Tsukuba, Japan. You are right here with us in spirit. Seeing the majesty of Mt. Fuji from space is a profoundly emotional moment…flooded with great memories of our time together. It seems that time slips by so quickly like sand through an hourglass. 

The 'mystery island' in my recent tweet is Isle Juan de Nova in the Mozambique Channel between Madagascar and the African mainland. The beautiful colors rival the amazing places in the Caribbean, like the islands in this photo. Hint: This photo was taken only 2 minutes after the photo in my previous tweet of the Caribbean City. 

This is indeed a priceless masterpiece, but not painted by human hands. If I could travel in time, I would love to meet one of the great Impressionists and share this picture... and listen to their thoughts. Back by request... you likely won’t need any hints to guess this 'mystery location'. 

Aurora Borealis in the distance on this beautiful night over Europe. The Strait of Dover is pretty clear as is Paris, the City of Lights. A little fog over the western part of England and London. It is incredible to see the lights of the cities and small towns against the backdrop of deep space. I am going to miss this view of our wonderful world...

On this sacred night, when the aurora looked like rain, I reflected back on my childhood dreams of flying a spaceship through the infinite expanse of space... to be among the mosaic of billions of stars, and visit other worlds. Now as I look from space at our planet I realize that had I been born and spent my childhood here in space... how much greater and more vivid my dreams would have been to visit this blue planet.

0 See What Ants Do To Aspartame

Using Aspartame for Ant & Cockroach Poison
by Stephanie Relfe B.Sc. (Sydney)
July 22 2010

I had heard of a woman who made up ant poison from aspartame, and since we in Florida were being invaded by ants, I decided to make up some ant poison of my own. I decided the best way to get them to eat it was by mixing it with raw honey. I mixed roughly 3 or 4 parts raw honey to 1 part aspartame (Nutrasweet from the supermarket) and put it out in a toy baby saucer for them.
Sure enough, pretty soon, the saucer was FULL of dead ants.

Later on, I put a small amount straight onto the floor. But this time, I got quite a shock when later on I glanced at the mixture. The ants had done something VERY strange to it!

You will see in the above picture that the ants COVERED UP the aspartame mixture! Presumably as a warning to other ants - "Stay away from this! It kills you!"
I was amazed that they had managed to find so many bit and pieces of stuff to cover it up with. The floor LOOKED clean. Where did they find that purple, plastic stick? I still can't work out what that is. You will notice that there are VERY few bodies in the second picture. I guess they got the message. After I saw this, I noticed in the first image that there are also some bits of debris here as well.
The moral of the story: In some respects, ants are smarter than people. People continue to suck down diet drinks (they are addictive). And if you stop and tell them that it's bad for them, they look at you as though you are crazy. (By the way, did you know that aspartame is fattening, because it makes a person crave carbohydrates?).
I have also used this raw honey & aspartame mixture for killing cockroaches. There are some big ones in Florida! They keep coming in from outside. Normal poison baits don't make much difference, and we don't want to spray because we don't want to harm ourselves. I don't know how effective it is in actually killing them - although we do get a few bodies after we put it out. But it sure does slow them down. Normal cockroaches are way too fast to me to catch with a wet paper towel (although my husband manages it), but once they've had a few days of raw honey & aspartame, they are SO SLOW that I just have to bend down, catch them in the wet paper towel and drop them in the toilet!
Please DO NOT consume ANY artificial sweeteners. Instead use stevia, raw honey or maple syrup.
NOT sugar, fructose, corn syrup or agave (same has high fructose corn syrup).
If you think this is strange behaviour, apparently it's not. This was posted on the internet:
That's very interesting. I've seen similar things before, as i spent a decade of my childhood into early adulthood studying ants. They don't just cover up dangerous substances for what they are composed of, but also for cases of physical danger like falling into fluids.
If you put an amount of sugar and water solution into an upturned bottle cap, then place that in the formicarium (ant farm) or whatever the ants are housed in, they will fill the cap with particles to prevent themselves from falling in and drowning. They can still drink the mixture, even when absorbed by the soil, as they are small creatures, able to get their mouthparts into the smallest of pits.

0 The Burger Bobbies: Hard-up police force patrols streets with McDonald's marshals to beat crime

19th November 2010

McDonald’s is helping to pay for a team of police officers and civilians to patrol the streets of a city centre at night.
The ‘street marshals’ are being funded entirely by local businesses, including the fast food chain, to try to control alcohol-fuelled violence.
Critics, however, fear the scheme is another potentially dangerous example of ordinary citizens being used to replace police officers to save money.
Ready to tackle "hamburglers"
  While towns across the country use street marshals or ‘angels’ to patrol on busy Friday and Saturday nights, the scheme in Leeds is the first totally funded by private businesses.

West Yorkshire Police insists all the marshals are ‘licensed and professional’ door staff whose job involves controlling troublemakers anyway.

0 T-Ray Tech Spots Bombs, Drugs from a Mile Away

Direct link to Article:

Scientists have replicated Superman's X-ray vision to see through clothing or packages in order to spot security threats.

     The Gist

  • Terahertz waves can see through clothing and boxes to detect of drugs, explosives and more.
  • Though terahertz waves are currently only used over short distances, a new technique makes long-range scanning possible.
  • Although more study is needed, the technology could be deployed at airports and on battlefields. 

Extracts from article Thu Jul 15, 2010 :
Start investing in metal underwear. Scientists from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) have found an ingenious way to replicate Superman's X-ray vision.
Currently the new combination of lasers, plasma and terahertz waves penetrates objects within a distance of 67 feet. If used outside the lab, however, they could see through objects over a mile away.
Military and homeland security officials are funding much of the T-ray research, including the RPI study, because T-rays can sense explosives and drugs as well as penetrate clothing, paper or other thin materials. "T-rays also do not produce harmful, ionized radiation like X-rays".


How Terahertz Waves Tear Apart DNA

A new model of the way the THz waves interact with DNA explains how the damage is done and why evidence has been so hard to gather
 taken from

The evidence that terahertz radiation damages biological systems is mixed. "Some studies reported significant genetic damage while others, although similar, showed none," say Boian Alexandrov at the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and a few buddies. Now these guys think they know why.
Alexandrov and co have created a model to investigate how THz fields interact with double-stranded DNA and what they've found is remarkable. They say that although the forces generated are tiny, resonant effects allow THz waves to unzip double-stranded DNA, creating bubbles in the double strand that could significantly interfere with processes such as gene expression and DNA replication. That's a jaw dropping conclusion.
And it also explains why the evidence has been so hard to garner. Ordinary resonant effects are not powerful enough to do do this kind of damage but nonlinear resonances can. These nonlinear instabilities are much less likely to form which explains why the character of THz genotoxic
effects are probabilistic rather than deterministic, say the team.
This should set the cat among the pigeons. Of course, terahertz waves are a natural part of environment, just like visible and infrared light. But a new generation of cameras are set to appear that not only record terahertz waves but also bombard us with them. And if our exposure is set to increase, the question that urgently needs answering is what level of terahertz exposure is safe.

 U.S. to deploy tanks in Afghan war: report

WASHINGTON | Fri Nov 19, 2010 7:25am GMT
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is sending battle tanks to Afghanistan for the first time in the nine-year-old war against the Taliban, the Washington Post reported on Friday.
Citing unnamed U.S. officers and defense officials, the paper said General David Petraeus, commander of the U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, approved the deployment last month.
"The deployment of a company of M1 Abrams tanks, which will be fielded by the Marines in the country's southwest, will allow ground forces to target insurgents from a greater distance -- and with more of a lethal punch -- than is possible from any other U.S. military vehicle," the Post said.
The initial deployment calls for 16 tanks to be used in parts of Helmand province, where fighting rages between Marines and Taliban guerrillas, the paper said.
It said Canadian and Danish troops have used a small number of tanks in southern Afghanistan.

German terror alert caused by US security firm's test suitcase

Package aboard Air Berlin's Munich-bound flight from Namibia was a 'dummy' planted by a US firm to test airline security, authorities reveal
A suspicious suitcase found at Windhoek airport, Namibia, that triggered an international alarm was only a test of local security and did not contain any explosives, the German interior minister, Thomas de Maizière, said today.
Namibian police found the suitcase amid routine security checks during loading ahead of a German tourist flight to Munich, the Namibian and German authorities said yesterday.
De Maizière told a news conference in Germany that the federal crime office (BKA) experts examined the suitcase and found it was a test suitcase designed to check security.
"BKA officials have examined it and the result is that it is a so-called 'real test suitcase' from a US company," he said. "This company produces alarm and detection systems and these test suitcases are made to test security measures. No explosives were found in the suitcase and at no time was there any danger to passengers."
Germans have never been convinced about spending billions on Full body Scanners, just last weekend an organized group of protesters stripped off their clothes in airports to voice their opposition to full-body scans. now a US made "dummy bomb suitcase"bound for Germany is found on a plane in the last 24 hours...can anyone see whats really happening here?
If terrorists really are everywhere..Why are planes not dropping out of the sky everyday?...
answer: Because there are NO terrorists....At least not in the form we have been lead to believe by our twisted profiteering media.
This german TV programme (now with full english subtitles) has a real-world demonstration of how easy it is to go though a Full body Scanner with everything you need to put together one hell of a Thermite type blast, this stuff could easily "eat" though the floor of an aeroplane thus severing all types of electronics. It really is a must see....especially the explosion!!
"The War On Terror" is nothing but a deadly profit making scam...


The Origin of  “BuildingWhat?”

More than eight years after the tragedy of September 11, 2001, New York Supreme Court Justice Edward H. Lehner was hearing arguments in a courtroom less than a mile from Ground Zero about a ballot initiative to launch a new investigation of the 9/11 attacks. When the lawyer for the plaintiffs sponsoring the initiative explained that the 9/11 Commission report left many unanswered questions, including “Why did Building 7 come down,” the Judge replied quizzically, “Building what?”
Like Judge Lehner, millions of people do not know or remember only vaguely that a third tower called World Trade Center Building 7 also collapsed on September 11, 2001. In any other situation, the complete, free fall collapse of a 47-story skyscraper would be played over and over on the news. It would be discussed for years to come and building design codes would be completely rewritten. So, why does no one know about Building 7? And why did Building 7 come down?
The answers to these questions have far-reaching implications for our society. The goal of the “BuildingWhat?” campaign is to raise awareness of Building 7 so that together we can begin to address these questions.

0 Was Hitler a "British" Agent?

By Henry Makow Ph.D |
Greg Hallett's provocative book "Hitler Was A British Agent" depicts war as a ghoulish illusion conjured by occult magicians in order to gradually degrade, destroy and eventually enslave humanity in world government.
Hallett's claim that Hitler was a "British" agent is based on the testimony of a shadowy network of retired intelligence agents. While he fails to provide documentary proof, Hallett does offer persuasive circumstantial evidence.
For example, Adolph Hitler was in England in 1912-1913, a fact supported by his sister-in-law's book: "The Memoirs of Bridget Hitler"(1979). Historians apparently have ignored this startling information. (If Hallett is right, historians have sanitized Hitler and made him more credible than he actually was.)
Hallett says Hitler spent February to November 1912 being brainwashed and trained at the British Military Psych-Ops War School at Tavistock in Devon and in Ireland. His sister-in-law describes him as completely wasted when he came to them immediately afterward.
"War machines need war and [that means they need] funded, trained and supported double agents to be their patsies, their puppets and their puppet enemies," Hallett says. (38)
Hallett's book is mostly useful as an alternative paradigm. (Usually we cannot recognize the truth because it doesn't pass our filters i.e. our "education.") When Hallett says "British", he means Illuminati, the Masonic cult of super rich bankers who control an interlocking network of megacartels. This cult is based in the City of London but uses England, the US, Israel and other countries as sock puppets.

A Brave New World controversy

Something 10th graders at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle did was so upsetting to a student and her mom that it's resulted in a curriculum change at the school, and apologies from the principal.
What were they doing? Reading. Reading Aldous Huxley's Brave New World as part of their language arts curriculum.
BraveNewWorldWhile the book is the center of a new controversy in Seattle, the debate about the fictional story has gone on for decades. The American Library Association ranks Brave New World as number 36 on the list of the top 100 books people have either banned or tried to ban.
Set in the year 2540, the book depicts a world in which everyone's life is predetermined. Boys and girls are conditioned at birth to fulfill already designated societal roles. As a result, everyone grows up happy. Or, almost everyone. The conflict in the novel arises when a few people try to fight the system that's running and ruining their lives.
Sarah Sense-Wilson's daughter was required to read the novel for a class at Nathan Hale. She is Native American, and her heart started to sink as she turned the pages to find more than 30 references to "savage natives."
"She was very upset and she said, 'Mom I need to tell you something, but I don't want you to get mad. There's a book I have to read in my class and it portrays Indian people as being savages and living on reservations,'" Sense-Wilson says.
She tried to read the book for herself.
"I was outraged when I read through the book. I had to keep putting it down because it was so hurtful," says Sense-Wilson. "It was traumatizing to read how Indian people were being depicted."

A-Z of Retail Tricks To Make You Shop 

"If we went into shops only when we needed to buy something, and if once in there we bought only what we needed, the economy would collapse, boom." Paco Underhill, CEO Envirosell
Ever wandered into a shop looking to buy a few things on your list, only to find yourself coming out with twice as much? You may not be aware, but the reason for this is not sheer chance, or that you were just feeling frivolous. The retail industry spends hard time and money into creating all sorts of devious little means to make you shop that bit extra. Every penny you spend in their shop is not being spent at their rivals, and in the high stakes of today’s competitive market, every penny counts.
Below is an A-Z of retail tricks that we have compiled to empower you before you go out shopping, so that you can buy what you need and collapse our economy! More will be added as we root them out.

Aisle Order Some customers, particularly men, tend to simply shop for what they want, walking down an aisle grabbing what they want, turning back and walking the way they came, this is called the 'Boomerang Effect'. In order to maximise shopper and produce contact time, shops therefore place major items and brands in the middle of aisles ensuring that from any direction the customer has to walk the furthest to reach them.
Baby Powder – Some UK baby shops now add Baby Powder to the air conditioning to remind people of new-born’s and relax them.
Baskets – Shops will actively hand out baskets and trolleys to customers, as people then feel embarrassed taking a basket with one item to the counter, and it increases the chances of multiple purchases. You will often find baskets to the right just after the Transition Zone.
Canned Smell – Most Supermarkets bake their bread early in the morning, however to entice more custom some have resorted to pumping out the smell of fresh baking bread to add to the illusion that it is constantly baked through the day. Go into Niketown on Oxford Street and smell the deodorant like pong they pump into the air!
Curved Aisle Ends – A lot of supermarkets noe curve the ends of their aisles, this is to ensure your eye never strays from the goods on display..

If smells make you local Costcutter must have some wholesale toilet roll going cheap.

0 Chemicals in cigarettes, French fries 'can increase Alzheimer's risk'

Worth the risk?
Washington, Nov 18 (ANI): A research has concluded that exposure to a group of chemicals known as type-2 alkenes - which are found in the smoke inhaled from cigarettes, the exhaust of automobiles and even in French fries - can increase the chances of developing Alzheimer’s disease and other neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease.
“The thought process and memory deficits associated with Alzheimer’s disease appear to be due to the very early loss of function of nerve endings in the brain,” said Richard M. LoPachin, a neurochemist and director of research in the Department of Anesthesiology at Montefiore Medical Center and the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.

0 How to steal a body-scan picture - msnbc news

In an effort to reassure skittish fliers, the Transportation Security Administration says its body-scan images "cannot" be stored, transmitted, or printed -- unlike the tens of thousands of images that were stored in a machine operated by the U.S. Marshals Service. But just how ironclad can that kind of denial ever be?
The TSA acknowledges that this sort of thing is possible when the machines are in test mode. What's more, there's no magic technology that would keep a truly dedicated (and twisted) screener from smuggling out a cell phone picture of a screen shot showing you in all your glory, passing through airport security.
Instead, the TSA relies on a policy that bans cell phones and cameras in the screening area. "Our officers adhere to the highest professional standards, so we are confident our policy is followed," Lauren Gaches, a TSA spokeswoman, told me.
These reassurances fail to appease privacy rights advocates. Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, told me this a "double standard.
He noted that airplane passengers aren't allowed to bring explosives on the plane, but they are subjected to body scans and enhanced pat-downs on the way to catch their flight -- just in case they try to skirt that policy. What's to prevent a TSA employee from skirting the cell phone policy?
