Administration of then-Gov. Jeb Bush in 2005 and 2006 put the Wall Street investment bank in charge of $250 million worth of pension funds for Florida cops, teachers and firefighters. Lehman would capture more than $5 million in fees on these deals, while gaining additional contracts to manage another $1.2 billion of Florida’s money. 2008, Lehman collapsed into bankruptcy, leaving Florida $1 billion in losses. In 2007, as he left office, Bush secured a job as a Lehman consultant for $1.3 million a year.

A class of insecticides linked to the decline of bees has more found in more than half of the streams in the United States where samples were taken, new research has found. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) say it is the first national-scale study of the presence of neonicotinoids, or "neonics," in urban and agricultural land use settings across the nation.

Researchers from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln have just completed a comprehensive analysis of roughly 275,000 water samples from 62,000 locations across the United States. They found that the parts of the High Plains Aquifer (also often referred to as the Ogallala) is saturated with uranium at a level that is 89 times higher than the EPA’s safe limit. The southern half of California’s Central Valley was even worse, with a uranium concentration 180 times higher than the EPA’s “maximum contaminant level;” nitrates in fertilizers and animal waste can cause the oxidation of naturally occurring uranium. Texas state officials had been concealing radioactive content of state drinking water for many years.

From selling Californians their own water at high costs during the worst drought in history to donating millions to fight GMO labeling through the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association, Big Food company Nestle is becoming despised more every day. The Indian government has filed a class action suit for 6.4 billion rupees ($99 million) against Nestle’s Indian unit. The suit was sparked by Nestle selling contaminated goods and ‘trading unfairly’ after a regulator in Uttar Pradesh claimed they found excess lead in a package of Nestle’s instant noodles, with the brand name, Maggi.

Third massive marine oarfish found on the island in two years. The sleek silver fish was missing its pectoral fins and tail… perplexed researchers are looking for a reason why. Dr. Misty Paig-Tran from California State University Fullerton collected tissue samples… to determine whether it had any toxins in its system. Questions remain as to why these fish are dying. The conservationist also speculated that water pollution could be to blame.

Marijuana unfairly blamed for effects of ‘use’
Our love-hate relationship with this seven-pointed leaf has been going on for decades. In fact, marijuana was in the top five most controversial topics of 2014. And while it continues making headline, behind laboratory doors scientists are changing the way

Under the pretext of reassuring NATO’s nervous new allies in eastern Europe, the Western alliance’s forces are moving steadily eastwards, ever closer to Russia’s western border. Purportedly to warn off any ‘Russian aggression.’

Who's the Real Troublemaker in the Middle East?

Oddly, when the candidates complain about the "evil forces of radical Islam" or trouble in the Middle East, they never seem to mention Saudi Arabia. In 2011, Saudi tanks invaded neighboring Bahrain and brutally crushed that nation's budding pro-democracy movement. Two years later, the Saudis backed a coup in Egypt that killed over 1,000 people and saw over 40,000 political dissidents thrown into squalid prisons.

When schools in California's Sausalito Marin City District return to session this August, they will be the first in the nation to serve their students 100 percent organic meals, sustainably sourced and free of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) accompanied by nutrition and gardening education. 2010 Healthy and Hunger Free Kids Act required schools in the U.S. to update their meal provisions to meet new USDA nutritional standards and offer more whole wheat products, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lean proteins to children who receive subsidized school lunches.

Goldman seems to be everywhere, into everything, but did you know it also is into warmaking?

Major role played by the Big Banks in military warfare as well as financial warfare with a close relationship to the policies and assaults by the Pentagon and NATO. In early August, Goldman Sachs appointed NATO’s former Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen as a financial consultant. Over the last five years (2009-2014), Rasmussen was actively involved in coordinating NATO’s humanitarian bombing raids in the Middle East not to mention NATO military deployments on Russia’s doorstep in Eastern Europe, the Baltic States and the Black Sea. During his stint as Prime Minister of Denmark (2001-2009), Rasmussen was involved (under a neoliberal policy agenda) in dismantling Denmark’s welfare state alongside the privatization of state assets.

It appears some are finally waking up. Correction: three of the Fed's 12 presidents are now Goldman Sachs alums. NY, Dallas and Philly. 25% from one bank. Amazing. Others, broadly disparaged by the "some" as "conspiracy theorists", have known all of this for a long, long time.

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich linked “rhetoric” from supporters of the U.S. Constitution to violent anti-government groups and ISIS this week in an exposé on the officer’s fight against “homegrown extremists.” The Washington state sheriff draws comparisons to the ISIS terrorist group while railing against everyone from Infowars’ Alex Jones to Washington State Rep. Matthew Shea.“There are some of those folks that want to overthrow the government, period. They want to hit a reset button,” Knezovich said. “If they’re willing to lie to get that reset button -- this is how ISIS starts.”

The European governments and their insouciant populations are themselves responsible for their immigrant problems. For 14 years Europe has supported Washington’s aggressive militarism that has murdered and dislocated millions of peoples who never lifted a finger against Washington. The destruction of entire countries such as Iraq, Libya, and Afghanistan, and now Syria and Yemen, and the continuing US slaughter of Pakistani civilians with the full complicity of the corrupt and traitorous Pakistani government, produced a refugee problem that the moronic Europeans brought upon themselves.
