Unspun News for the 11th October 2015

UNSPUNEWS - 151011
3m20s video - trailer for the new movie ‘Generation Zapped’.  WATCH IT.  WiFi is almost a guaranteed brain-carcinogen, particularly for children (in later life).  So whose responsibility is this?  Obviously the governments have abrogated it.


WORLD
“Russian airstrikes kill 2 ISIS commanders, 300 militants – Defense Ministry; In total the airstrikes destroyed six communication hubs, six armories, 17 training bases and 17 armored vehicles“

MIKE WHITNEY - “Russia doesn’t want to fight a war with Turkey, so Russian generals devised a simple, but effective plan to discourage Turkey from taking any action that could lead to a clash between the two nations.”  NEVER play chess with a Russian!!!  Intelligent calm wins every time over bad-mouth posturing. (And never miss a Mike Whitney article, either!)


“Twin explosions outside Ankara’s main train station on Saturday morning killed at least 86 people and wounded up to 190 in an attack targeting a peace rally in Turkey's capital city.“  Yes - a ‘logical’ target.  Let’s see who gets blamed….. by whom.

“the World Bank is currently a human rights-free zone. It treats human rights more like an infectious disease than universal values and obligations,”  So - you expected empathy or compassion?  Duh.

Columbia…. “When the Colombian government and the western media recognize that Washington intervention exacerbates the violence, rather than helps minimize it, then possibly Colombia can begin to extricate itself and pursue a course that will enable the Colombian people to achieve lasting peace and social justice.“  Endless, innit?

ALAN HART - “Israel’s strategy (not stated but actual) is to make life hell for the occupied, oppressed and humiliated Palestinians in the hope that they will abandon their struggle and surrender on Zionism’s terms or, better still, pack their bags and leave to save Israel’s leaders from having to resort at some point in the future to a final ethnic cleansing of Palestine.”

“China said on Friday it would not tolerate violations of its territorial waters as the United States considers sailing warships close to Beijing's man-made islands in the disputed South China Sea.“  Hardly a surprise….

UNDER-REPORTED
STEPHEN LENDMAN - “The US/UK/Israeli axis is the greatest threat to world peace, Putin its best chance to restore it, to save humanity from the scourge of another global war, a nuclear one if waged too horrible to imagine.“

“ISIS training militants from Russia in Afghanistan, ‘US and UK citizens among instructors’;  US cited as ferrying ISIS fighters into Afghanistan“

“US: The World's Silliest Empire;  It would be humorous if people weren't dying because of it“

“WikiLeaks on Friday published the final negotiated text for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP)'s Intellectual Property Rights chapter, confirming that the pro-corporate pact would harm freedom of expression by bolstering monopolies and injure public health by blocking patient access to lifesaving medicines.”

“Vladimir Putin’s ISIL “end game” in support of Syria’s armed forces has put the United States and the coalition in an untenable spot, that’s for sure.“  “Either way Russia is infuriated, and a dangerous game just got downright scary.“

NUCLEAR

EARTH
“No theory of climate change / global warming even begins to be credible UNLESS it plausibly explains the vast climate changes of the past fifty million years, at least, as global warmings and coolings and ice ages have come and gone and sea level has risen and fallen 400 feet or more again and again and again.”  A breath of intelligent, sane comment.  Leave the fear-stuff behind and read this.  Climate NEVER STOPS changing.
The reconstruction of ancient climates ….

“USGS puts the kibosh on ‘1000 year flood’ and ’caused by climate change’ claims over South Carolina flooding”  A breath of sanity!

“By meticulously examining sediments in China's Yellow River, a Swedish-Chinese research group are showing that the history of tectonic and climate evolution on Earth may need to be rewritten. “

UNCLASSIFIED
“17 Out-of-Place Artifacts Said to Suggest High-Tech Prehistoric Civilizations Existed”  Go on - give your brain a stretch!

“Free Thought vs. Social Conformity”  As if YOU didn’t know!

ALTERNATIVE
“You notice a funny thing when you look at the evidence for the extension of consciousness – the mind operating beyond the body: the presence of feeling.“

JON RAPPOPORT - “It’s hard to know what a lock is unless you know what a key is, and how they fit together.”  (Itemised list) “And this is just the beginning of the list.  But the key that fits into the lock and brings about a deep acceptance of things as they are…what is that?  It is the human mind”   SERIOUS brain fodder!

PREDICTION/FORECASTS

ASTRONOMIC
“Solar activity is very low. There is only one small sunspot on the Earth-facing side of the sun, and it has a simple magnetic field that poses no threat for strong flares. As a result, the sun's X-ray output is flatlining.“

“A new study from the team behind NASA's Mars Science Laboratory/Curiosity has confirmed that Mars was once, billions of years ago, capable of storing water in lakes over an extended period of time.”  [There are more things OFF this world, Horatio, than are dreamed of in your philosophy!]

HEALTH
LOTS about homeopathic immunisation….. WELL worth being aware of.

“Newly Unsealed Documents Reveal EPA & Monsanto Always Knew Roundup Was Deadly Toxic“

“The seeds of the annual flowering plant, Nigella Sativa, have been prized for their healing properties since time immemorial.  While frequently referred to among English-speaking cultures as Roman coriander, black sesame, black cumin, black caraway and onion seed, it is known today primarily as black seed, which is at the very least an accurate description of its physical appearance. The earliest record of its cultivation and use come from ancient Egypt.”

GENERAL/USEFUL
“NOW your phone knows you better than ever. The latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system learns what your voice sounds like, and can identify you when you speak to Siri, ignoring other voices that try to butt in.“  And this is a good thing? 

======================================
“When people call you mad, insane, weirdo, nutter, lunatic, deluded, crackpot, misfit, eccentric, peculiar, and non-conformist …. BE ETERNALLY GRATEFUL - for you have retained the ability to think for yourself.”

~~Unknown …. But so true!!!!!
