Feel The Noise: Are Backwoods Beats Really Harmless? - (Jan. 13, 2017 - By Chuck Thompson - Outside Magazine) - Around the world, studies are proliferating on the devastating effects ofelectrosmog,” the blanket of electromagnetic fields (EMFs) that we’ve cast across the planet, which could be harmful to various wild species. For example, German scientist Ulrich Warnke has argued that there’s a link between colony collapse disorder in bees and our mania for cell phones, whose RF waves discombobulate bees’ orientation and navigation mechanisms.

Then there’s FirstNet, a nationwide wireless-broadband network for emergency communications that was approved by federal law in 2012. Backed by numerous studies, the Department of the Interior has raised concerns about the harmful effects it may have on migratory birds. In a dramatically titled 2014 book, An Electronic Silent Spring, Katie Singer reports on a Spanish study of a frog habitat located near a cell tower. Researchers found that frogs artificially shielded from the antennae’s waves had a mortality rate of 4.2 percent. Frogs left exposed to the waves reportedly suffered a whopping 90 percent mortality rate.


The FCC hasn’t updated its guidelines for power-density exposure to humans since the passage of the Telecommunications Act in 1996. Singer points out that section 704 of the act includes a clause that forbids state and local governments from regulating “wireless service facilities on the basis of the environmental effects of radio frequency emissions.” According to critics like Singer, this verbiage means that even if everyone in your town agrees that a proposed new cell tower is going to kill all the birds, bees, and frogs, your city council is legally prohibited from denying a permit based on emissions. In effect, telecom profits trump environmental health.  -

How Cannabinoids Work At The Cellular Level To Keep You Healthy - (Dec. 15, 2016 - by Adrian Devitt-Lee - Project CBD) - Both CBD and THC affect mitochondrial activity, which is critical to how cells function. There are implications for a number of conditions and diseases.


THC and CBD are both potent antioxidants, according to the U.S. government, which filed a patent on the antioxidant and neuroprotective properties of cannabinoids based on research from 1998. This patent underscores one of the great hypocrisies of federal drug policy, which disingenuously maintains that cannabis has no medical value.


According to a 2016 report in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society (London): “Cannabinoids as regulators of mitochondrial activity, as anti-oxidants and as modulators of clearance processes protect neurons on the molecular level . . . Neuroinflammatory processes contributing to the progression of normal brain ageing and to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases are suppressed by cannabinoids, suggesting that they may also influence the aging process on the system level.

Ageing, neurodegeneration, metabolic disorders, and cancers are all linked to mitochondrial activity — or lack thereof. .... Preclinical studies indicate that THC can inhibit the formation of amyloid plaque in the brain (a hallmark of Alzheimer’s dementia) by enhancing mitochondrial function. And CBD has been shown to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis and reverse symptoms of memory loss….  -

Biotyranny And Its Resistance: Who Owns Your Body? - (March 11, 2017 - By Andrew Smart - Motherboard) - Inspired by Foucault, Chelsea Manning and techniques like gene editing, artists and activists are taking back power over our bodies from governments and corporations.


The ideology of management and control is already expressed in DNA databases, surveillance cameras, drones, and the mobile devices that surround and watch us via web tracking and targeted ads. There are fewer and fewer physical and virtual spaces in which we can hide our bodies from the endless need of corporate and state institutions to monitor us and influence our behavior. Simply by using the internet, we inadvertently give enormous amounts of data to corporations that collude with state actors who desire to attain a kind of omniscience about our individual lives and intentions. Algorithms now secretly monitor the sentiments in our emails at work and then send that data to our bosses.

Meanwhile, biotechnology has become increasingly invasive. The day is not far off when tiny implantable sensors, ostensibly implanted to protect our health by collecting data, will become commonplace.

Biotechnology driven by power enhances the ability of institutions to conduct politics as a continuation of war. But it is more insidious because it is often presented to us as "caring surveillance" or "protective surveillance." Clinical trials will soon involve continuous monitoring of patients through the use of thousands of sensors in the home and on the body. The fundamental need for us to form a critical perspective on biopower is brought into sharp relief by this tension: biotechnology offers the promise to cure disease, improve healthcare and help the weak. But
this technology will also give the state, the corporation and the military ever more sophisticated tools with which to track, monitor and control us.  -

Toxic Brain Cells May Drive Many Neurodegenerative Disorders - (Jan. 18, 3017 - By Bruce Goldman - Stanford Medicine)  - Astrocytes, star-shaped cells in the central nervous system, are essential to the survival and healthy function of brain neurons. But aberrant astrocytes may be driving neurodegenerative disorders.

While most of us haven’t heard of astrocytes, these cells are four times as plentiful in the human brain as nerve cells. Now, a team led by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine has found that astrocytes, which perform many indispensable functions in the brain, can take on a villainous character, destroying nerve cells and likely driving many neurodegenerative diseases.

A study describing the findings was published online Jan. 18 in Nature.

“We’ve learned astrocytes aren’t always the good guys,” said the study’s senior author, Ben Barres, MD, PhD, professor of neurobiology, of developmental biology and of neurology and neurological sciences. “An aberrant version of them turns up in suspicious abundance in all the wrong places in brain-tissue samples from patients with brain injuries and major neurological disorders from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s to multiple sclerosis. The implications for treating these diseases are profound.


….  “We’re very excited by the discovery of neurotoxic reactive astrocytes,” [Barnes]  said, “because our findings imply that acute injuries of the retina, brain and spinal cord and neurodegenerative diseases may all be much more highly treatable than has been thought.”  -

This creature has 10 eyes, legs that chew and blood that saved your life - (July 4, 2017 - by Sarah Kaplan - The Washington Post) - First of all, there’s their blood. The stuff that runs in horseshoe crabs’ veins is copper-based, and it gleams pale blue when exposed to oxygen. (Iron makes humans’ blood look red.) But the true marvel of horseshoe blood lies with specialized immune cells called amebocytes, which clump up and form a gel on contact with a bacterial invader.

An extract from these cells, limulus amebocyte lysate (LAL), has been used to test for contamination in every vaccine, surgical tool and medical device that’s been inside a human body in the past 47 years, saving untold numbers from dying of infections like pneumonia and E. coli. No other animal’s blood has such powerful antimicrobial properties, and scientists still aren’t able to reproduce it in a lab.

A vampiric biomedical industry has sprung up to harvest horseshoe blood. Crabbers catch the animals and send them to labs, where about 30 percent of their blood is drawn. The amebocytes are then turned into LAL — $50 million of it every year. And the crabs are dropped back into the ocean, preferably in the same water where they were found.  -

Scientists Upload A Galloping Horse GIF Into Bacteria With CRISPR - (July 12, 2017 - by Megan Motleni - Wired) - E. coli might best be known for giving street food connoisseurs occasional bouts of gastric regret. But the humble microbial workhorse, with its easy-to-edit genome, has given humankind so much more—insulin, antibiotics, cancer drugs, biofuels, synthetic rubber, and now: a place to keep your selfies safe for the next millennium.

Scientists have already used plain old DNA to encode and store all 587,287 words of War and Peace, a list of all the plant material archived in the Svalbard Seed Vault, and an OK Go music video. But now, researchers have created for the first time a living library, embedded within, you guessed it: E. coli. In a paper published today in Nature, Harvard researchers1 describe using a Crispr system to insert bits of DNA encoded with photos and a GIF of a galloping horse into live bacteria. When the scientists retrieved and reconstructed the images by sequencing the bacterial genomes, they got back the same images they put in with about 90 percent accuracy.

The study is an interesting—if slightly gimmicky—way to show off Crispr's power to turn living cells into digital data warehouses.  -

Uruguay, First Country In the World To Legally Regulate Marijuana - (July 14, 2017 - by Hannah Hetzer - AlterNet) - But the Uruguayan model is quite different from what's happening in the U.S.

The Uruguayan model allows four forms of access to marijuana: medical marijuana through the Ministry of Public Health; domestic cultivation of up to six plants per household; membership clubs where up to 45 members can collectively produce up to 99 plants; and licensed sale in pharmacies to adult residents. Regulation will be overseen by the government’s Institute for the Regulation and Control of Cannabis (IRCCA). Sales to minors, driving under the influence of marijuana, and all forms of advertising are prohibited.  -

St. Louis’ Nuclear History Leaching Into Streams & Bodies

Japan Plans To Expose Its People And 2020 Tokyo Olympians To Fukushima Radiation - (July 17, 2017 - by Dahr Jamail - Truthout) - Former nuclear industry senior vice president Arnie Gundersen, who managed and coordinated projects at 70 US atomic power plants, is appalled at how the Japanese government is handling the Fukushima nuclear crisis.


Officials from Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), the company responsible for cleaning up the disaster, announced this February they were having difficulty locating nuclear fuel debris inside one of the reactors. Radiation inside the plant continues to skyrocket to the point of causing even robots to malfunction.

Cancer cases continue to crop up among children living in towns near Fukushima.

And it's not as if the danger is decreasing. In fact, it is quite the contrary. Earlier this year, radiation levels at the Fukushima plant were at their highest levels since the disaster began.

TEPCO said atmospheric readings of 530 sieverts an hour had been recorded in one of the reactors. The previous highest reading was 73 sieverts an hour back in 2012. A single dose of just one Sievert is enough to cause radiation sickness and nausea. Five sieverts would kill half of those exposed within one month, and a dose of 10 sieverts would be fatal to those exposed within weeks.


….  …as a result of its inaction in 2011 and 2012, the Pacific Ocean and the beautiful mountain ranges in Fukushima and surrounding prefectures are contaminated. 


Arnie Gundersen had even stronger words.

"The disaster at Fukushima Daiichi will continue for more than 100 years," he explained. "Other atomic power reactor disasters are bound to occur. Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi should have taught everyone around the world that nuclear power is a technology that can destroy the fabric of a society overnight."

According to him, the remains of the reactor containments at Units 1, 2 and 3 are highly susceptible to damage from another severe earthquake, and any earthquake of 7.0 or higher at the Fukushima site could provoke further severe radiation releases.  -

All The Bad News You Need To Know About The ALEC Agenda - (July 20, 2017 - by Mary Bottari - Exposed by CMD) - Meeting in Denver, ALEC attendees are debating model bills related to college sexual assault, campus protest, private schools vouchers, renewable energy, the ACA and more.

Rolling Back Renewables on the Agenda in Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force

This ALEC draft resolution held over from the spring task force meeting opposes state funding for green energy projects on private buildings. In particular, this resolution opposes “government involvement in financing renewable and efficiency projects for private property owners.” It appears that conflicting industry interests are holding up this ALEC bill which attacks a wildly popular government program.

The Property-Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) Program helps promote green energy and energy efficiency projects on private property. It pays for improvements to buildings, and the financing is repaid by an assessment on the building’s property taxes over a period of up to 20 years.

This attack on green energy is one in a long line of bills attempting to rollback renewables. Fossil fuel companies Koch Industries and ExxonMobil serve on the ALEC private sector board and major utilities such as Devon Energy, Peabody Energy are ALEC funders and participants. Measures like this one prompted dozens of major corporations such as Google, Facebook and AOL to drop ALEC in 2015. Google Chairman Eric Schmidt accused ALEC of “literally lying” about climate change on NPR.  -
