BOSTON - Exposure in the womb to bisphenol A, a chemical used to make plastic containers and to line cans of food, is associated with behavior and emotional problems in young girls, new research has shown for the first time.
Last weekend, at the dedication of the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial on the Washington Mall, two of King’s children gave shout-outs to Occupy Wall Street, now spreading around the country and the world. His daughter Bernice spoke of it as “a freedom explosion” and his son Martin eloquently hailed “the young people of the Occupy movement all over this country and throughout the world [who] are seeking justice... for working class people barely making it, justice for middle class folk unable to pay their mortgages... justice for the young people who graduate from college and are unemployed and burdened by student loans they cannot repay, justice for everyone who is simply asking the wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share.”
The Central Intelligence Agency is working on climate change, but you'd never know it. Climate change is hard to hide, but the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency is trying anyway.
Hidden in that worthless jobs bill was the Border Perimeter and Security Act between the US and Canada. As I understand it, US and Canadian troops will be (are being) stationed along both sides of the border with Canada to make sure no terrorists (you) or criminals (you) slip across that border in either direction without the government knowing it and identifying you biometrically . This Act was actually the crux of the “jobs” bill; a bill constructed and used as a front to cover up and to pass quietly what is another assault on the public by government and to further the global intent to identify absolutely every citizen on the planet and to hold that identity information in a global data bank accessible by virtually any agency of any government in the world in real time.
With the destruction of Libya winding down, the Western imperialist machine is looking for the next target for destabilization and exploitation. If John McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, is any indication, it is likely the case that Syria is on the top of the list.
The corporate media may obsess about what Occupy Wall Street is all about, but these images should make it clear. What are the Occupy Wall Street protesters angry about? The same things we’re all angry about. The only difference is the protestors turned their anger into public action. Occupy Wall Street lit the embers and the sparks are flying. Whether it turns into a genuine populist prairie fire depends on all of us.
In this remarkable interview, Firoze Manji (*) reveals the strategic and economic stakes of the war waged by NATO in Libya
The Material Girl's sibling Anthony Ciccone claims he has been homeless for over a year and has been living under a bridge in Traverse City since losing his job at his father's winery in Suttons Bay, Michigan. He also reveals the true extent of his misery living as a vagrant - he has suffered frostbite from the cold Michigan weather. “I got frostbite on my feet last winter. A friend of mine lost all 10 toes. Several have died of hypothermia.”

Nothing defines the post-Gaddafi National Transitional Council (NTC) regime better than the shockingly brutal manner in which Colonel Moammar Gaddafi was literally beaten to death after his capture on Thursday in Sirte. To reiterate the cliché that all is fair in love and war in this context is no comfort. The reports and footage of Gaddafi’s last moments are nothing short of hair-raising. This was a barbaric act in the extreme. With its usual expedient blinkers where its interests are concerned, the west, whether governments or the media, have tucked away their moral compass somewhere out of sight and convenient.
According to figures published by the Social Security Administration Thursday, the median income for American workers in 2010 was $26,364, just slightly above the official poverty level of $22,025 for a family of four. Median income is the point at which half of all workers make less and half make more. The 50 percent of all workers who earn less than the median income are either living in poverty or escaping it only by virtue of having two or more full-time workers in the household—meaning that a layoff that reduces the family to a single income puts them perilously close to impoverishment.
As politicians in Western capitals were taking quiet pleasure in the capture and killing of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi yesterday, opinions elsewhere were divided. In Moscow, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that the Geneva Conventions had been breached with the killing of Colonel Gaddafi.
THE BRUTAL MURDER of Muammar Gaddafi by Zionist-owned Libyan insurgents is an example of what happens to political leaders who defy international Jewish bankers. Gaddafi refused to do the bidding of the Rothschild-centered global banking cartel in 5 areas:
The US Senate Thursday rejected a measure that would have enabled Americans to buy prescription drugs in Canada in a bid to reduce the costs of their health care.
He is heard to say: "What you're doing is wrong, guys. What you're doing is wrong. "Do you know what is right or wrong?" As they continued to drag the 69-year-old through the street he whispered: "What are you doing? It's haraam [forbidden]. "It's not allowed in Islamic law. Haraam. "What you are doing is forbidden in Islam!" A rebel drowns him out by screaming: "God is great! God is great!" Another shouts: "Shut up you dog." The next shot of Gaddafi on film shows him with his eyes shut.
Do you want to know the real reason banks aren't lending and the PIIGS [Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, Spain] have control of the barnyard in Europe? NYSE Trading FloorIt's because risk in the $600 trillion derivatives market isn't evening out. To the contrary, it's growing increasingly concentrated among a select few banks, especially here in the United States.
The killing of Muammar Gadaffi in Sirte has been marked by a round of celebration by western governments over their intervention in Libya. As with the capture of Saddam Hussein in Iraq and the killing of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, it will be described as a turning point and a further victory in the seemingly endless ’war on terror’. There is little reason for the triumphalism. Nato’s war on Libya was not a ’humanitarian (...)
Scores of Somali civilians have been killed in U.S. drone attacks in the southern region of the country, as Washington tightens its military grip on much of the continent. The current offensive involves thousands of Kenyan troops that are threatening the major Somali city of Kismayo. The American drones are supporting the Kenyan invasion. The drones’ origins are officially secret, but it is known that the U.S. operates drone bases in Ethiopia and Djibouti, which is home to a huge American base.
Former MI5 agent Annie Machon says that the US wants to reinforce the myths that public has been told about NATO’s ‘humanitarian’ intervention, while Libya is being bombed beyond the point of no return.
Beware of strangers bearing gifts. Post-modern Amazon and United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally landed in Tripoli - on a military jet - to lavish praise on the dodgy Transitional National Council (TNC), those opportunists/defectors/Islamists formerly known as "North Atlantic Treaty Organization rebels".
As the Occupy Wall Street movement that began in downtown Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park enters its second month, the giant Goldman Sachs investment bank announced October 19 that it had set aside $10.01 billion so far this year for year-end compensation and bonuses. At the same time, the bank reported a third quarter loss of $428 million, only the second time since Goldman went public in 1999 that it has reported a loss.
The savage killing Thursday of deposed Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi served to underscore the criminal character of the war that has been prosecuted by the US and NATO over the past eight months.
PORTLAND, Tenn. – You're probably used to seeing TSA's signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR). "Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate," said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons. Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.
The 1318 transnational corporations that form the core of the economy. Superconnected companies are red, very connected companies are yellow. The size of the dot represents revenue. AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep the world this week, science may have confirmed the protesters’ worst fears. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.
Gold markets will never be the same again once China establishes the so called Pan Asia Gold Exchange (PAGE), scheduled to open in June, 2012, analysts predicted. The Exchange, which will be opened at Kunming, capital of China’s southwestern province of Yunman will certainly change the way gold prices are setting, analysts added. The setting up of the Exchange is entitled to change global supply and demand dynamics and how gold can be traded. Many believes that it will create greater transparency in the markets because the gold will be priced in terms of an alternative currency, bypassing the dollar, which remains global currency.
New York City Major Mike Bloomberg suggested on Friday that he feels he’s been going too easy on the Occupy Wall Street protesters and that more arrests may lie in their future. During his weekly appearance on WOR-AM radio, Bloomberg stated, “We will start enforcing that more,” with reference to regulations requiring permits for marches and rallies.
Lobbying disclosure forms for the third quarter of 2011 are due tonight, and corporate America’s tort reform lobby has so far topped the list of the most profligate spenders. According to Politico:
Ron Paul warned of looming widespread economic collapse caused by reckless financial practices and abetted by government guarantees during an interview on Des Moines radio this morning. “The country is in chaos and if we don’t do something, it’s going to get much, much worse,” the presidential candidate said.
If Washington’s plans succeed, Libya will become another American puppet state. Most of the cities, towns, and infrastructure have been destroyed by air strikes by the air forces of the US and Washington’s NATO puppets. US and European firms will now get juicy contracts, financed by US taxpayers, to rebuild Libya. The new real estate will be carefully allocated to lubricate a new ruling class picked by Washington. This will put Libya firmly under Washington’s thumb.
Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) became the law of the land, millions of Mexicans have joined the ranks of the hungry. Malnutrition is highest among the country’s farm families, who used to produce enough food to feed the nation.
As the number of OWS arrests nears 1,000, instances of police brutality continue to pile up. Now all of America is seeing the result of police militarization.
Young people accepted a home mortgage worth of debt before they ever even had a regular income based on phony promises.
Police, teachers, the corporate press, mental health professionals -- the guards of the system -- are given small rewards to pacify and control the population.
Hillary seems happy that the New World Order agenda is moving along quite nicely...
Another scary outcome I discovered is that, when the protesters marched to the first precinct, the whole of Erickson Street was cordoned off – "frozen" they were told, "by Homeland Security". Obviously if DHS now has powers to simply take over a New York City street because of an arrest for peaceable conduct by a middle-aged writer in an evening gown, we have entered a stage of the closing of America, which is a serious departure from our days as a free republic in which municipalities are governed by police forces.
The Interior Department has been inching closer to approving Royal Dutch Shell’s ambitious plans to drill for what are believed to be huge deposits of oil in the Arctic Ocean off Alaska.
If you've wondered what Occupy Wall Street was all about, these powerful messages should help clarify what's driving the movement. That photograph of well-heeled traders sipping champagne on a balcony high over Zuccotti Park as they look down on the Occupation below is already an iconic image, capturing the haughty detachment with which Big Finance has received this rapidly spreading expression of popular outrage. The movement is now using a variety of strategies to take its message directly to the "1 percent” – to make sure they can't ignore the protests from the comfort of their sheltered enclaves.
The death of Gaddafi has finally concluded his eight- month stand-off with NATO. But as the alliance and the new Libyan government celebrate the war’s end, the untold numbers killed in the intervention cast a dark shadow over their victory.

"People are coming back to farms around here that they abandoned years ago so they can grow potatoes, cabbages and vegetables to help them survive the crisis," says Petros Citouzouris, as he pruned his vines high in the mountains of Naxos, the largest island in the Cyclades. The financial catastrophe in Greece is engulfing the most isolated parts of the country.
Activists involved in ongoing 'Occupy Wall Street' protests accuse US corporate media of ignoring their cause. As the “Occupy Wall Street” protests in the US enter their third week, American critics complain that the mainstream media is doing its best to downplay the phenomenon.
