Sweden to recognize Palestine as a state

Well, now.  Kudos to Sweden for taking the bold step.  How about it, United States?  *crickets*

U.S. official: Enterovirus D68 caused boy’s death

Again, this article doesn’t go far enough–what the author fails to address is the complications from poor diet, toxins’ effect on the gut, therefore the immune system, and the connection between conditions such as asthma and death from the virus.

Enterovirus has been around since the 60s…and yet, children now are having difficulty fighting it off…our highly toxic environment– heavy metal contamination (mercury, lead, arsenic) damage the immune system–besides creating problems such as ADD and autism, it also causes asthma.  And when the body is hit with a strong virus such as this, it cannot fight back as easily as children of the past.

Yet that is not mentioned in these articles.

No, that would take some hard work on our part to go against the interests of bu$ine$$ who don’t want to find ways of conducting business without poisoning us in the process.

It would mean going up against Monsanto, Dupont, and the like, who pushed their GMO’s on to the public without a care of how the body would not recognize it in order to digest it properly, creating inflammation and destroying the gut in the process.

The AP finally ran an article Friday stating that handwashing was a defense against enterovirus and Ebola…while pushing vaccines again.  Unreal.

TRENTON, N.J. – A virus that has been causing severe respiratory illness across the U.S. is responsible for the death of a 4-year-old boy in New Jersey, a state medical examiner has determined.

Hamilton Township health officer Jeff Plunkett said the Mercer County medical examiner’s office found the death of Eli Waller was the result of enterovirus D68. The virus has sickened more than 500 people in 43 states and Washington, D.C. – almost all of them children.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said earlier this week that four people infected with the virus had died, but it’s unclear what role the virus played in the deaths.

Some children are especially vulnerable to infection because of pre-existing conditions, though the medical examiner said that was not the case in the New Jersey boy’s death. Most of the severe cases nationwide have involved children because they generally…

First Nations protesting Red Chris mining

Powerful video here.  I just don’t understand why he didn’t want to talk to them nor drink the water…/snarky to the extreme

What price for food that is edible or water that does not contain heavy metals?  What price for healthy bodies from unpolluted air, water, and soil?

What price for life?

 

First Nations ask for Public Inquiry into Mount Polley

The First Nations of Canada sent a letter to Stephen Harper and Christy Clark asking for investigation into the Mount Polley disaster and for mining reform.

I’m sure Stephen Harper will jump right on that…/snarky for sure

Domestic abuse without raising a hand…

Order of the White Feather has a sobering post up on using technology to continually abuse and control a partner seeking to get away from her abuser.  It is just astounding that someone could think up this sh*t (probably an abuser himself), and then be able to sell it without worry of prosecution.

The companies market the tools as “safety features” to monitor your kids….it always starts out that way–marketed for something good when it’s used for something evil.  I don’t buy mSpy’s assertion that they have no knowledge or responsibility for their product being used for abuse.

Here’s why:

MSpy has a step-by-step guide — with screenshots — on how to download the app onto an iPhone or Android device, how to activate it, and then how to delete any visible trace of it. It’ll just hang out in a hidden folder, with a nondescript name like “Android.sys.”

Why would you need to hide it if you were using it for innocent reasons?  I don’t understand the parents-as-stalkers mindset, either.  Good Grief, the poor children with such controlling parents, monitoring every single thing they do!  Suffocating.

And the online banking thing…one of the reasons I will not do it is because of security.  I had to close my free account recently because the bank insisted on a $500 balance, or I could switch to online banking and not deal with the humans at all (putting another person out of work is not my idea of doing unto others as I would have done to me…).

This story drives that point home–no matter how much they would like to assure us that technology = security…the facts speak differently.  Paper is still more secure, with less ability of someone gaining access to information that is none of their business.

And in this case, someone’s life depends on it.

In this rape culture, women are still seen as extensions of men.  As objects to be owned and possessed.  The domestic abuse represents that sense of  entitlement.
