Eliot Weinberger: Ten (More) Days in America "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

On Brett Kavanaughs first day as justice, the Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal to a ruling written by Kavanaugh himself in 2017 when he was an appellate court judge. Kavanaugh had determined that the EPA lacked the authority under the Clean Air Act to enforce an Obama administration rule regulating hydrofluorocarbons, industrial chemicals that deplete the ozone. (And so it begins.)

Meehan Crist: Am I My Mother-in-Law? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Before I got pregnant, I thought I understood how DNA works: parents pass on some combination of their DNA, which codes for various heritable traits, to their children, who pass on some combination to their children, and so on down the neat branching lines of the genealogical tree. What I didnt know was that women can also receive DNA from their children.

Christopher Tayler: The Psychologicals "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

On the one hand, its clearly part of Anna Burnss project in Milkman to redescribe the Troubles without using such terms as the Troubles, Britain and Ireland, Protestant and Catholic, RUC and IRA. On the other, the narrators mad, first-principles language, with its abundance of phrases in inverted commas and sudden changes of register, is also used to describe the inner world of a young woman with no idea whom to tell, and no templates for what she might say, when shes stalked and groomed by a powerful older man. The public-political and the personal-political arent easily disentangled, and theres no reason that they should be. But the plot complicates the readers and the narrators sense of the way they interact.

Nico Muhly: How I Write Music "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The primary task, I feel, is to create a piece of art that is better than the same amount of silence; I would prefer to sit silently thinking for ten minutes than to listen to certain pieces of music, and therefore feel that it is my duty as a composer to occupy the time of the listener and the musicians with something challenging, engaging and emotionally alluring. I dont want to play them a movie with a clear exposition, obvious climax and poignant conclusion, nor do I want to drop them blind into a bat cave of aggressively perplexing musical jabs. I try to create an environment that suggests motion but that doesnt insist on certain things being felt at certain times. Mapping the pieces route helps me avoid the temptation of the romantic journey or the provocateurs dungeon.

The American Economy Is Rigged "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

And what we can do about it!

By Joseph Stiglitz and cross posted from Scientific American

Americans are used to thinking that their nation is special. In many ways, it is: the U.S. has by far the most Nobel Prize winners, the largest defense expenditures (almost equal to the next 10 or so countries put together) and the most billionaires (twice as many as China, the closest competitor). But some examples of American Exceptionalism should not make us proud. By most accounts, the U.S. has the highest level of economic inequality among developed countries. It has the worlds greatest per capita health expenditures yet the lowest life expectancy among comparable countries. It is also one of a few developed countries jostling for the dubious distinction of having the lowest measures of equality of opportunity.

The notion of the American Dreamthat, unlike old Europe, we are a land of opportunityis part of our essence. Yet the numbers say otherwise. The life prospects of a young American depend more on the income and education of his or her parents than in almost any other advanced country. When poor-boy-makes-good anecdotes get passed around in the media, that is precisely because such stories are so rare.

Things appear to be getting worse, partly as a result of forces, such as technology and globalization, that seem beyond our control, but most disturbingly because of those within our command. It is not the laws of nature that have led to this dire situation: it is the laws of humankind. Markets do not exist in a vacuum: they are shaped by rules and regulations, which can be designed to favor one group over another. President Donald Trump was right in saying that the system is riggedby those in the inherited plutocracy of which he himself is a member. And he is making it much, much worse

NPC Memes and Judaic Aniconism "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


By Gilad Atzmon  


The mainstream media reported today that Twitter suspended hundreds of accounts after users on the pro-Trump Reddit forum r/The_Donald coordinated efforts to use Twitter to set up 'Non-Player Character' (NPC) profiles mocking liberals.

 The artistic campaign was born out of their characterisation of liberals as uncritical characters automatons, name callers not capable of independent authentic thinking.

 The BBC reported that within 24 hours there were more than 30,000 uses of the term NPC on Twitter, and Facebook pages dedicated to the trend amassed tens of thousands of followers.

 The term NPC is borrowed from the digital games industry. It refers to characters managed by artificial intelligence whose behavior is limited to certain scripted responses and actions.

 The NPC meme began as a satirical attempt to ridicule the New Lefts sound-bite, cliched culture. The BBC quoted one poster saying, "If you get in a discussion with them it's always the same buzzwords and hackneyed argumentsIt's like in a [video game] when you accidentally talk to somebody twice and they give you the exact lines word for word once more."

 21st Century Wires Patrick Henningsen commented this morning on his Facebook page that the 'NPC' meme is pure art, much more illustrative and reflective than the Pepe meme, and opens a whole new level of social commentary. By definition, this is what art does.

 But for some reason parts of the mainstream media are not enthusiastic about the new artistic adventure. Henningsen continues, the MSM reaction is telling and so is Twitters ban. Ironically, Twitter proves they are 'NPC' by banning these memes after decreeing them to be 'political manipulation'. According to Henningsen, the recent panic over the NPC meme proves the insecurity of the Latte Left, that they can't even tolerate laconic gamer satire.

 I believe that the negative reaction to the NPC meme is one more piece of evidence of the Judaisation of our social, political and cultural landscape. 

 Judaism is very strict in its opposition to icons and artistic imagery. The Torah contains a...

Heute morgen sa ich in einem Kubernetes+Docker-Vortrag. ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Heute morgen sa ich in einem Kubernetes+Docker-Vortrag. Ich beobachte ja immer gerne, wie sich Felder entwickeln. Und Docker und Kubernetes hat sich irgendwie nicht so viel bewegt, seit ich das letzte Mal geguckt habe. Wobei, das stimmt nicht, es gibt jetzt noch mehr Layer und Produkte, die empfohlen werden, um Probleme zu lsen, die man vorher (also vor Ausrollen von Docker und Kubernetes) noch gar nicht hatte.

Mir ist ja nach wie vor unklar, wieso Container als Methode zum Downloaden und sicheren Ausfhren von Fremdsoftware aus dem Internet verkauft wird. Wenn man nicht gerade ein Cloud-Provider ist: Wie viele Szenarien beinhalten denn bitte, dass man unvertrauenswrdige Software ausfhrt? Wenn die Software nicht vertrauenwrdig ist, dann fhrt man sie nicht aus. Oder man lebt halt damit, dass die Software Mist machen kann, und lsst sie nicht an die Datenbank mit den Payroll-Daten oder das Corpnet ran.

Ich finde, Container muss man eher als Deployment-Technologie betrachten. Fr Software, die man im Moment per # ./install deployed, oder per RPM oder DEB. Da schiebt man jetzt halt nicht ein RPM mit Dependencies herum, sondern aus dem Buildsystem fllt ein Image mit allen Abhngigkeiten, und die schiebt man auf das Zielsystem. Wenn das rger macht, dann fhrt man das vorherige Image nochmal hoch und hat nur ein paar Sekunden Downtime. Das ist ein Versprechen, das Container grundstzlich einlsen knnen, und da sind sie auch nicht schlechter als irgendein gammeliges manuell hochgepatches (wenn berhaupt) Redhat mit handinstallierter Anwendung sondern haben sogar echte Vorteile.

Die ganze Idee hinter Containern ist dann, dass man beim Deployment agiler wird, und Fehler nicht so schlimm sind, weil man das alte Image noch hat. Dann muss man aber natrlich auch agil sein und seine Images hufiger neu bauen, insbesondere auch mit den aktualisierten Abhngigkeiten frisch. Warum das keiner macht, ist aber eine Frage fr einen anderen Blogrant :-)

OAT: Number-Juggling "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

OAT: Number-Juggling

Guest Author ALI WILKINS catches a few dropped balls in SBCs OAT reputational management campaign otherwsie known as the Cuffe & Taylor Benefit Society.


I read with interest the article in the Scarborough News concerning the OAT.

The information we were given was that the total number of actual punters was 91,431 for the 2018 season, with the average per gig being 5,714.

Looking at this average figure, it does look quite good for the capacity stated as 6,500.

There was one slight error, though. The reason for the 75,000 spent on the permanent decking was to increase capacity to 8,000, in order to attract top quality acts to the venue.

I would like to add some figures into those, if I may.

Despite the increased capacity due to SBC funding permanent space directly in front of the stage, the difference between the average per gig last year and this year is only 500.  This is not a lot.

So, looking back at the figures, the total 91,431 punters divided by the average 5,714 should give the number of actual gigs, which I make to be 16.

Multiply the number of gigs (16) by the new capacity of 8,000 per gig, then the total number of possible punters would be 128,000! This is a lot!

Subtract the number of actual punters (91,431) and we have 36,569 unsold seats for the season.

Looking at these figures, I think it was reported that perhaps 3 acts were a sell-out. So if we deduct these 24,000 from the actual figures and divide the remainder by 13, we will have an average of 5,187 per gig which is almost 3,000 less than full capacity.

Not such a roaring success as claimed. I fail to see how our cost of 100k per annum can be justified when we are paying out and getting no profit and the benefit to the town is guesstimated in a similar fashion to that of the bike race.

If someone approached you and said, I want to put gigs on at your venue (A venue you just spent about 5m renovating) but you must pay all of the maintenance and security costs, and...

Science Says Fluoride in Water Is Good for Kids. So Why Are These Towns Banning It? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

"You cannot tailor public health to the whims of a small group of people," says the president of the nonprofit American Fluoridation Society

Fluoride prevents cavities and tooth decay, something confirmed by numerous studies, yet a small but vocal minority has gotten dozens of cities to remove the naturally occurring compound from the water supply, NBC News reported.

"Anti-fluoridationists" blame fluoride for lower IQs and diseases, despite long-established science. The American Dental Association says that 74 cities have voted to remove fluoride from their drinking water in the last five years, and proposed bans are on the ballot in two more cities this November.

"You cannot tailor public health to the whims of a small group of people," said Dr. Johnny Johnson, a retired pediatric dentist who leads the nonprofit American Fluoridation Society. "If you are doing that, you are harming a large group of people."

While nearly 75 percent of the United States gets fluoridated water, more than 80 percent of New Jersey residents do not, and the Texas Republican Party now opposes water fluoridation as well.

Note on the current state of class struggle in Brazil "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

cab_statement_2.jpegThe current Brazilian political scenario demands a lot of lucidity and coolness from all the peoples fighters and their analysis of reality. We, the Brazilian Anarchist Coordination, modestly seek to make our contribution to the understanding of the convulsive political-social scenario, the main line of which is in the legal-parliamentary coup that toppled Dilma Rousseff from government. We have recently experienced the so-called exhaustion of the New Republic pact of 1988. Said pact maintained the social exclusion of those at the bottom of society, while guaranteeing minimal legal rights, in a coalition involving bourgeois politicians, businessmen, the military and part of the reformist sectors of the left.

The construction of the Brazilian state, however, has always been closer to the interests of the imperialist powers of the day than to the majority of the population. A penal state for the poor has always been the norm for the institutions of bourgeois democracy. The PT governments, since Lula, have increased the criminal machinery of public order with a whole legislative-judicial apparatus that reproduced the super-incarceration of blacks and the poor and the repressive apparatus that attacks social struggles. The pact of class conciliation was broken and collaborationism ripped open to give way to the aggressive agenda of financial capitalism over social rights, partial freedoms and public goods which were historic victories of the popular movement.

Fracking- 3 activists released from Jail "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I spent much of last year filming on the frontline of resistance to Fracking in this country.  The controversial energy extraction process known as 'Fracking' has little support in the UK yet is being pushed ahead by the Tory Government.

I directed the movie Power Trip: Fracking in the UK and toured it all over England educating about the dangers of Fracking and what people are doing to stop it. Yesterday Cuadrilla Fracked for the first time near Blackpool. If the company finds that gas can be extracted this way then prepare for hundreds of more wells. This is not good new for our climate.

Today the 3 men jailed for protesting non-violently against Fracking last year were released. They appear in our film and the appeal judges declared their original sentence of 16 months as
'manifestly excessive'. They forgot to mention that the original judge has family links to the Fracking industry.

Why Holocaust Education is Failing? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Auschwitz-3.gif Share

 By Gilad Atzmon

Despite the vast amount invested in Holocaust education and in spite of the fact that the Holocaust is the only compulsory subject in the British national history curriculum, British pupils seem not to follow the message of the rigid topic. For some reason, they struggle to buy into the primacy of Jewish suffering. They show little interest and learn mostly nothing.  Yesterdays Tablet Magazine article,  The Failure of Holocaust Education in Britain, produced a clumsy attempt to grasp the reason for the failures of Holocaust education.

 UCLs  Centre for Holocaust Education has recently conducted  the worlds largest ever study of its kind, it interviewed over 8,000 pupils aged 11-18 in England. Andy Pearce who work as a researcher at the centre told the Tablet that apparently  25-30 years of Holocaust education is failing to make an impact.

Pearce reports that when students were asked who was responsible for the Holocaust, Hitler dominated the answer. This is presumably a wrong answer. Pearce continues, Incredibly when we asked them to tell us who the Nazis were, students responded by saying they were Hitlers minions and Hitlers paratroopers. Pearce wasnt happy with this answer either. There was no reference to the Nazi Party as a political movement. Students also told the researchers that most Jews were killed in Germany. There was no understanding of collaborating regimes and many believed that mass killing began in 1933. 

Pearce inadvertently provided some crucial insights into the systematic failure of holocaust education. While Heidegger taught us that to educate is to teach others how to learn, indoctrination is a very different exercise. It teaches how to produce the right answers. The Holocaust, as taught and preached, falls into the domain of indoctrination. It is not a subject matt...

Julian Rose: The Normalisation of Madness "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

by Julian Rose

Im sitting in the departure lounge at Krakow airport, waiting for the flight to Edinburgh. Sitting opposite is a young woman with a pink mobile phone resting against her crutch and a plastic bottle of Coca Cola standing in the same place. The first, slowly destroying her brain and reproductive capacity and the second slowly destroying her gut and nervous system.

She has ear pieces extensions coming from her mobile and wears a vacant, somewhat resigned expression on her face. Unaware no doubt, that she is steadily shortening her life expectancy.

Its a pretty crowded place. The usual array of dominant global corporations display their latest wears in the neon lit sterile corridors that have become the stereo typical environment of international airports the world over. Each processed, packaged product on offer is displayed as irresistible.

The air in this place is conditioned, but so is everything. Including the pall of microwaved electronic smog which ensures that no ones brain is working as it should. We are all anaesthetized.
Manufactured electricity is the dominant energy here, humming and buzzing through the power points of hundreds of appliances, screens and WiFi hot spots. Airports like this pretty much symbolise the normalisation of madness. The less than human techno-dependent totems of the modern computer led era, that creep on and on in their homogenisation of planetary diversity.

The young lady opposite pears at the screen of her cell phone. Suddenly some small glimmer of an expression animates her face. Someone is texting a message to her. I wonder what it says? Maybe How are you darling just got back home and found your little brother playing war games 3 on his new App. Daddy is mowing the lawn again! Have a great flight and dont forget to text us when you arrive! Luv, mum. Her face returns to neutral and she replaces the phone back in its original life sapping position.

Outside the window, various and sundry robotic like vehicles manoeuvre around the acres of tarmacadam that form the terminals of international airports. Not a tree in sight. A few seats down from me, a baby is sitting on its mothers lap, musing meditatively on whatever it is that babies muse upon. Suddenly a beautiful smile lights up its face. A subtle aura of redemption hangs in the air and for just a moment sheer joy pene...

Ich bin heute und morgen in Heidelberg bei der Heise ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Ich bin heute und morgen in Heidelberg bei der Heise Devsec 2018 und halte heute nach der Mittagspause meinen Vortrag. Ich komme gerade aus einem Vortrag, in dem es darum ging, dass die fiesen Security-Leute ja hufig selber gar nicht programmieren knnen und kommunikativ ein Handycap haben und nicht wissen, wie sie die Entwickler da abholen, wo sie sind. Ein Beispiel aus dem Publikum war, dass so ein Security-Fuzzy dem armen Entwickler gesagt hatte, sein SSL-Zertifikat sei falsch und msse repariert werden, aber der hatte gar nicht gesagt, was da jetzt konkret falsch ist und wie man das besser macht.

Diese Einstellung hrt man glcklicherweise inzwischen nur noch sehr selten, und das begre ich. Meiner Erfahrung nach sind Entwickler im Allgemeinen interessiert daran, eine gute Arbeit zu machen. Und das beinhaltet: Keine Sicherheitslcken produzieren.

Ich habe schon hufig erlebt, dass Entwickler mit mir ber Bugs verhandelt haben, aber das hatte immer falsche Anreize in der Organisation als Hintergrund. Sowas wie: Ich kriege einen Bonus, wenn ich keine Bugs habe. Du hast hier gerade Bugs aufgemacht, das killt meinen Bonus, daher bestreite ich die jetzt alle.

Man stelle sich mal vor, ein Architekt argumentiere so. Sagen wir mal: Ein Klimaforscher sagt: Wir haben Klimawandel, die Strme werden strker, ihr msst eure Statik jetzt auf mehr Windstrke auslegen. Und die Architekten sagen dann: Der bse Klimaforscher hat mir gar nicht erklrt, was ich da genau tun muss jetzt!1!!

Undenkbar, da sind wir uns hoffentlich alle einig. Das sollten wir auch Software-Entwicklern nicht durchgehen lassen. Glcklicherweise kommt das auch jetzt schon so gut wie nicht vor, jedenfalls meiner Erfahrung nach.

Update: Ich sollte das nochmal explizit sagen: Das ist nicht die Realitt. Jedenfalls nicht in meiner Erfahrung. Der Report erwhnt mindestens den Fachbegriff Integer Overflow, danach kannst du googeln und dann findest du, wie man das fixt. Oder der Report verweist auf intsafe/safeint oder die entsprechenden gcc/clang-Builtins. Und das ist auch bei ... weniger serisen Marktteilnehmern so, weil das ein einfacher Weg ist, den Report zu strecken. Daher ist das eine akademische Diskussion hier. Ich bin aber der Meinung, dass jemand, der nicht wei, was ein Zertifikat kaputt macht, die Finger von Code lassen sollte, der mit Zertifikaten hantiert.

STRANGEWAY Challenges SBC Car Cruise PSPO "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

STRANGEWAY Challenges SBC Car Cruise PSPO

East Riding of Yorkshire Councillor Andy STRANGEWAY [Ind.Ind.] has intervened in the matter of Scarborough Borough Councils peculiar action to regulate car cruising in certain parts of the Borough under a Public Space Protection Order.

Councillor STRANGEWAY has written to SBC Director of Legal & Democratic Services and Monitoring Officer Mrs Lisa DIXON, to point out a fundamental fault in SBCs paperwork and/or signage:

Clearly, many of the above prohibitions are already the subject of primary legislation prosecutable offences under both traffic and public order laws.

This is problematic because, in some circumstances, the 100 FPN (Fixed Penalty Notice) may offer a cheap option for an offender likely to face a far more severe penalty of up to 1,000 if prosecuted under primary legislation and at the same time evade any concomitant penalty points on her/his licence.

Pointing out that bye-laws (including PSPOs) should not duplicate primary legislation, Councillor STRANGEWAY states:

In addition, I believe SBC may have inadvertently created a loophole for a clever lawyer to prevent their client receiving points on their licence by stating they should be dealt with as per the byelaw not national legislation.

No doubt we shall presently learn of Mrs DIXONs rationale for creating a deterrent that deters only one-tenth as effectively as the law as it stood without SBCs knee-jerk meddling in response to a relatively trifling incident . . .


Parry Sound doctors supporting fluoridation misinformed, reader "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

I read the Oct. 5 opinion letter by a group of local doctors trying to convince Parry Sounders to vote in favour of fluoridation in the upcoming plebiscite.

As one of the persons derogatorily labeled as a "so-called expert," Id like to offer some corrections and facts in response based on science, not politics or endorsements.

Claim1: As health professionals we serve as first-hand witnesses to the impact that poor dental hygiene has on the overall health of the community.

This is an odd statement, since physicians do not practice dentistry and are not familiar with dental science.

Fact: poor dietary choices (frequent sugar intake) cause cavities. Poor dental hygiene is a not a major factor in the prevalence and severity of dental decay.

Claim 2. Cavities cost Canadians over a billion dollars a year.

Sounds impressive, but thats only $27/person/yr.

Fact: Other dental costs, including cosmetic dentistry to treat the dental fluorosis side effects of fluoridation, are 12 times higher.

Claim 3. The truth is, fluoride in drinking water has been scientifically studied for over 70 years without ever finding evidence that the low levels recommended in municipal drinking water have any negative health effects

Fact: While fluoridation has been in place for 70 years, studies have not been conducted to show safety. Our expert review panel (the National Academies of Sciences Committee on Fluoride in Drinking Water) reviewed over hundreds of studies on fluoride toxicity. See  We found several problems with fluoride in drinking water because fluoride accumulates in the body, primarily the skeletal system.



Sears Didnt Die. Vulture Capitalists Killed It. "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Sears is a prime example of how hedge funds and private equity companies take over retailers and gradually bleed them dry for their own benefit.

By Robert Kuttner and cross-posted from Huffington Post

If youve been following the impending bankruptcy of Americas iconic retailer as covered by print, broadcast and digital media, youve probably encountered lots of nostalgia and sad clucking about how dinosaurs like Sears cant compete in the age of Amazon and specialty retail.

But most of the coverage has failed to stress the deeper story. Namely, Sears is a prime example of how hedge funds and private equity companies take over retailers, encumber them with debt in order to pay themselves massive windfall profits, and then leave the retailer without adequate operating capital to compete.

Part of the strategy is to sell off valuable real estate, the better to enrich the hedge fund, and stick the retail company with costly rental payments to occupy the space that it once owned.

In the case of Sears, the culprit is a hedge-fund operator named Edward Lampert, once a senior merger guy at Goldman Sachs. In 2005, Lampert merged Sears with Kmart, loaded both up with debt, and used some of the debt on stock buybacks to pump up the share price and enrich shareholders, notably himself and his hedge fund.

In a decade, 175,000 people at Sears/Kmart lost their jobs and revenue was cut in half. Various pieces of Sears were sold off. Lampert did just fine.

Lamperts hedge fund also became a prime a lender to Sears, making money off of commissions and interest charges as well as being a prime shareholder. The strategy ensures that the fund and its beneficiaries (including Lampert himself) get rich, even if they run Sears into the ground. For the most part, the nostalgia coverage of the demise of Sears has missed this

Reason to switch to fluoride-free toothpaste during pregnancy "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Reason to switch to fluoride-free toothpaste during pregnancyThe findings of new research may make you want to switch to fluoride-free toothpaste while pregnant. Read on to find out why

A study of over 200 pregnant women and their children found that higher levels of urinary fluoride during pregnancy are associated with more ADHD-like symptoms in school-age children.
Our findings are consistent with a growing body of evidence suggesting that the growing foetal nervous system may be negatively affected by higher levels of fluoride exposure, said Dr Morteza Bashash, the studys lead author and researcher at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, Canada.
Researchers analysed data from 213 mother-child pairs in Mexico City that were part of the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project, which recruited pregnant women from 1994 to 2005 and has continued to follow the women and their children ever since........................


Fluoride - Demand AARP Take Action "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Dr. Chuck,

A couple good responses to your good questions on "legal" and "NSF."

I would agree with you, most US court cases have ruled in favor of fluoridation, but not all.  And certainly international courts have not been as good to fluoridation.  Few have wrestled and ruled on the science.

Those two issues of (A) courts and (B) NSF are too big to cover here, but I will add to other posts.

(A)    Courts generally support governments, so those harmed with excess fluoride have a higher standard to gain.    (Courts took years to rule against tobacco, long after science was firm.)

1.   As you may know, like a scientific study, courts try to focus on one variable and often it ends up to be a war of court terms rather than the benefits and risks of fluoride.  Only one case I know of, considered the science and that court ruled in favor of the science which is opposed to humans ingesting more fluoride. . . fluoridation.  On appeal the science was not reviewed.

2.   The EPA approved SF for a post-harvest fumigant with residual concentrations up to, for example, dried egg of 900 ppm, similar to toothpaste.  Most dried egg is fed to children and seniors in schools and retirement homes. . . the most vulnerable.  On petition, an administrative judge ruled against the EPA on all counts.&nbsp...

Please read, and share the following press release with your local media outlets.

October 14, 2018
Canadian adults who have higher levels of fluoride exposure and are deficient in iodine may be at an increased risk of underactive thyroid, according to a new study.
Concern about exposure to fluoride disrupting thyroid function has been suggested in the past, said Christine Till, the studys senior author and associate professor at York University. In fact, up until the 1960s, fluoride was prescribed as a suppressant for overactive thyroid. While our findings only establish an association, not cause-and-effect, they are important because they suggest a potential effect of fluoride on thyroid function at levels of exposure that are typical for Canadians.
The study, Fluoride exposure and thyroid function among adults living in Canada: Effect modification by iodine status, published in Environment International, used population-based data from Cycle 3 of the Canadian Health Measures Survey (CHMS), which includes health-related data collected by Statistics Canada from a nationally representative sample of Canadians.
The study consisted of 6.9 million adults between the ages of 18 and 79 years. Adults who were diagnosed with a thyroid disorder, or who were on thyroid medication, as well as pregnant women, were excluded.

Khashoggi Was No Critic of Saudi Regime "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist who disappeared in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week, is not quite the critic of the Saudi regime that the Western media says he is.

By As`ad AbuKhalil and cross-posted from Consortium Dreams

The disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi journalist, in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week has generated huge international publicity, but unsurprisingly, little in Saudi-controlled, Arab media. The Washington Post, for whom Khashoggi wrote, and other Western media, have kept the story alive, increasing the pressure on Riyadh to explain its role in the affair.

Its been odd to read about Khashoggi in Western media. David Hirst in The Guardian claimed Khashoggi merely cared about absolutes such as truth, democracy, and freedom. Human Rights Watchs director described him as representing outspoken and critical journalism.

But did he pursue those absolutes while working for Saudi princes?

Khashoggi was a loyal member of the Saudi propaganda apparatus. There is no journalism allowed in the kingdom: there have been courageous Saudi women and men who attempted to crack the wall of rigid political conformity and were persecuted and punished for their views. Khashoggi was not among them.

Some writers suffered while Khashoggi was their boss at Al-Watan newspaper. Khashoggicontrary to what is being writtenwas never punished by the regime, except lightly two years ago, when Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MbS) banned him from tweeting and writing for Al-Hayat, the London-based, pan-Arab newspaper owned by Saudi Prince Khalid bin Sultan.

By historical contrast, Nasir As-Sa`id was a courageous secular Arab Nationalist writer who fled the kingdom in 1956 and settled in Cairo, and then Beirut. He authored a massive (though tabloid-like) volume about the history of the House of Saud. He was unrelenting in his attacks against the Saudi royal family.

For this, the Saudi regime paid a corrupt PLO leader in Beirut (Abu Az-Za`im, tied to Jordanian intelligence) to get rid of As-Sa`id. He kidnapped As-Sa`id from a crowded Beirut street in 1979 and delivered him to the Saudi embassy there. He was presumably tortured and killed (some say his body was tossed from a plane over the empty quarter desert in Saudi Arabia). Such is the track record of the regime
