As health officials predicted, the Zika virus is beginning to spread across south Florida, and now a type of genetically modified (GM) mosquito designed to fight the virus has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration
CDC and the Florida Health Department recommended an aerial spraying program to cover a 10-square-mile area just north of downtown Miami. The state is spraying a chemical called Naled, which is an organophospate pesticide that causes severe skin and eye irritation, contains an ngredient called napthalines classified by the EPA as a “possible human carcinogen.”In the 1950s, the U.S. was seeking to weaponize the Aedes aegypti mosquito while Brazil and other Latin American countries were trying to eradicate it. Army scientists were considering how fleas, grasshoppers, and mosquitoes might be deployed.. These insects were harder to protect against than gas— masks wouldn’t help. The threat they posed would last, as long as a population of insects remained alive, would be difficult to pin an insect-borne attack on the U.S. There were parts of the Soviet Union that had never been exposed to the disease, which made them vulnerable, had the right climate to support mosquitoes.
10 of the 20 largest wildfires in California's history have burned in the last 10 years. Toxic algae blooms off of the coast of Florida, dormant anthrax that's been released from the melting soils in Siberia. Scientists fear that as ice-melt accelerates in the Arctic, 1,500 billion tons of land-based carbon and 10,000 billion tons of sea-based methane released into the atmosphere from the permafrost and from beneath the Arctic Sea where it's been trapped for hundreds of thousands or even millions of years.

Orlando, Florida man Daniel Rushing seeking damages from the city, was handcuffed, arrested, jailed and strip-searched for possession of sugar glaze from a Krispy Kreme doughnut. He was pulled over for speeding. Cpl. Shelby Riggs-Hopkins spotted “a rock like substance on the floor board.”"I recognized through my eleven years of training and experience as a law enforcement officer the substance to be some sort of narcotic," the eight-year veteran of the force wrote in arrest report. Riggs-Hopkins field-tested the substance twice, both times it came up positive for amphetamines..”Florida state crime lab confirmed the truth. Police did not explain why doughnut glaze tested positive for amphetamine, said the arrest was lawful. Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab show 21 percent of evidence police listed as methamphetamine was not methamphetamine, half of those false positives were not any kind of illegal drug.

Researchers have found that a myriad of ultraviolet (UV) filtering chemicals in common sunscreens disrupt the functioning of normal sperm cells and mirror the effects of the female hormone progesterone.Head author of the study Niels Skakkebaek, MD, DMSc, a professor at the University of Copenhagen, and colleagues tested the effects that 29 of 31 UV filters allowed in sunscreens had on human sperm cells. The researchers found that almost half of the UV filters acted as a hormone disruptor, thereby interfering with the normal functioning of sperm cells. Many sunscreens harbor cancer-causing chemicals, which get absorbed by the skin and into the blood stream..
System developed by SOVZOND makes it possible to compare satellite images of the Earth made since 1980s to analyze dynamics of such human activities as construction, land reclamation and the development of transport infrastructure with the help of unique change detection technology.“Official country-to-country statistics are not always available, and are sometimes intentionally distorted, especially when it comes to developing countries. Satellite imagery is always objective and, with the use of or World Evolution technology, it can now be automatically processed to produce unified results; it captures the gradual changes in the processes and events happening on Earth enabling scientists to make forecasts for the future.

U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) foundthe Pentagon was still using 1970s-era computing systems that require "eight-inch floppy disks."Such disks were already becoming obsolete by the end of that decade, being edged out by smaller, non-floppy 3.5 to 5.25-inch disks, before being almost completely replaced by the CD in the late 90s.The report says the Pentagon is planning to replace its floppy systems -- which currently coordinate intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs), nuclear bombers and tanker support aircraft -- by the end of 2017. Other departments put on notice to update their systems. The U.S. Treasury , still depends on assembly language code "initially used in the 1950s." .

While residents of beleaguered Flint face rate hikes for the city's lead-poisoned water and Detroit sees teachers staging sickouts after lawmakers threatened to withhold their full salaries, the state treasury announced this week that Michigan businesses are to effectively pay nothing in taxes this year. Michigan is projected to give corporations a net refund while it faces a budget shortfall of $460 million. State's Corporate Income Tax rewritten in 2011 to cut business taxes to a flat 6% rate, increased personal income taxes and sales tax, unfairly burdened individual taxpayers, failed to instigate job growth."Fuel taxes and registration fees set to increase next year, part of a new road funding plan..
Resistance to antibiotics is growing at such an alarming rate that they risk losing effectiveness entirely meaning medical procedures such as caesarean sections, joint replacements and chemotherapy could soon become too dangerous to perform. Drug resistant infections are thought to be growing due to over-use of medicine such as antibiotics and anti-fungus treatments to treat minor conditions such as the common cold. With over-use, resistance to the drugs builds up meaning some conditions become incurable and so-called ‘superbugs’ such as MRSA develop.

He created an electro magnetic harvester out of a coffee can, some wire, two coils, and a spoon. In a demonstration, Max uses current created by the machine to power a strip of LED lights that he wrapped around his twin brother Suppression of free energy devices and technology by the energy industry and by government is an established fact..
Sony and Google have plans for cameras you wear on (or in) your eyes, implication of a “connected” camera recording what you see means others would have access to your vision. Sony filed a patent for a contact lens camera that beat out similar patents from Samsung and Google. The awarded patent describes a lens that fits over your own, controlled by deliberate combinations of blinks that tell the camera when to record. Google opting instead for an optical implant; patent application filed in 2014; publicized last week shows a camera being mounted inside the eye, likely using a medical procedure, wants its camera implant to be able to broadcast. Imagine a third party hacking your device and getting all that information.
Healthy soil contains billions of tiny microorganisms that help plants to thrive and our food supply to remain abundant. A paper, published in Nature Communications, used large-scale data comparisons of soil from 78 global dry lands and from 179 locations across Scotland to study diversity of soil microbiota. The researchers found that diversity is absolutely imperative for supporting ecosystems. With high diversity of microbiota, the soil can function more efficiently and provide a multitude of services. This single factor turned out to be more important than annual rainfall, altitude, or temperature. Loss of microbial diversity resulted in reduced multi-functionality, including soil fertility and food production. Soil biota is essential to ecosystem functioning because it breaks down organic matter, enables chemical elements to be reused, and fixes nitrogen, which is necessary for nutrients in the ecosystem.
“LARs [lethal autonomous robots] have the potential to operate at a tempo faster than humans can possibly achieve and to lethally strike even when communications links have been severed. Autonomous targeting technology will likely proliferate to nations and groups around the world. The feared legal concerns do not appear to be an impediment to the development or deployment of LARs.
One study, which wound up costing $1 million, sought to find out where it hurts the most to be stung by a bee, which resulted in a researcher being stung in the penis (apparently, only the third most painful body part to be stung).

F-35 program officer Lt. Gen. Christopher Bogdan: F-35’s logistics system“the brains and blood of operating this weapons system.”Despite many fixes, the aircraft’s Autonomic Logistics Information System (ALIS) so flawed government auditors believe the computer system may not be deployable. Bogdan now saying ALIS is not really critical insisting the F-35 can fly without it for 30 days. ALIS is ground-based computer system to diagnose mechanical problems, order, track replacement parts, guide maintenance crews through repairs. The plane is absolutely dependent on computer technology and millions of lines of software code to operate. Government Accountability Office released report confirming flaws in ALIS can ground entire fleet.
Oxford’s Global Priorities Project has compiled a list of catastrophes - both natural and self-engineered - that could kill off 10 percent or more of the human population: natural pandemics and extreme conventional warfare are the most important global risks, with artificial intelligence (AI) and natural disasters also posing serious threats. The likeliest risks include nuclear war and pandemics (both natural and deliberately engineered), followed by disasters stemming from runaway climate change, geoengineering run amok; also included low-probability — but high impact —events, like asteroid impacts and supervolcanic eruptions.
Mental illness is on the rise. There has been a four-fold increase in the number of people who are on disability as a direct consequence of being diagnosed with a mental health disorder. With a 20-fold increase in international rates of ADHD, a 30-fold increase in autism, and similar increases in bi-polar and other disorders in children, it seems we must pay attention to nutrition more than ever. But our healthcare system seems to ignore this vital aspect of mental health while continuing to prescribe ever-increasing numbers of pharmaceutical drugs.
