Supporters of the Syrian opposition held a rally in Berlin at... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



Supporters of the Syrian opposition held a rally in Berlin at the first anniversary of the gas attack on Ghouta near Damascus by regime forces of dictator Bashar al-Assad. They reminded of the up to 1,500 dead who were killed by that gas attack. 08/23/2014.

Its the same Ghouta which is until now still under siege and is heavily bombed during the last days. The people in Ghouta are now suffering for more than four years.

Thousands attended a march in Berlin against the inhuman asylum... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



Thousands attended a march in Berlin against the inhuman asylum system in Germany. Against residence obligation, the conditions in the camps for asylum seekers and deportations. The demonstration followed a march by about 20 refugees from Wrzburg to Berlin who arrived one week earlier. These protests were the beginning of a wave of refugee actions, including protest camps and hunger strikes, in Berlin and throughout Germany. 10/13/2012.

Fisking 'Feedback' on the BBC's Brexit coverage "IndyWatch Feed Europe"



Whatever reservations some of us might have about Samira Ahmed's Newswatch and its usefulness (though I'm glad it exists and that it's to the credit that the BBC broadcasts it), I really don't think it can be credibly denied that its teeth are a heck of lot sharper than its Radio 4 equivalent, Roger Bolton's Feedback...

...or that the otherwise very opinionated, censorious Samira Ahmed does a far, far better job of concealing her own views than Roger Bolton ever manages to do.

For example, Samira would never begin an edition of Newswatch like this: 
Roger Bolton: Hello. It's nice to be back. Nothing much has happened at the BBC since we've been off-air, just a little local difficulty about gender equality and presenters pay and the usual accusations of leftie-liberal bias. Oh, and the BBC is now the prime target in the age-old political game of 'Shoot the Messenger'. The reason? This:
BBC newsreader: Senior ministers will meet tomorrow to discuss what the government wants from the final Brexit deal. 
Roger Bolton: Yes, Brexit.
Note the dismissive, mocking tone of "the usual accusations of leftie-liberal bias" followed by the emphatic, preemptive, opinionated, even-more-dismissive defence of the BBC in "Oh, and the BBC is now the prime target in the age-old political game of 'Shoot the Messenger'" (specifically in connection with the BBC's coverage of Brexit).

Yes, Samira Ahmed (however opinionated and illiberal she might be on Twitter, or in newspapers, or in magazines, or on other BBC programmes) would never glibly mock viewers' concerns on Newswatch itself.

a-Fisking we shall go : David Raynes in Conservative Woman "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Every now and again a piece of perfectly congealed boneheadedness comes along. Why do they come on a Friday from the brexstremists, making me fisk them when I should be heading for a beer? Anyhow, here we go, with a piece of internally inconsistent and condescending foolishness of note. So bad is it that the author knew, and allowed a sign, reproduced above, of a vandalised welcome to NI sign be its picture lede. 

Is the Irish border really the unsolvable Brexit problem the EU Commission would have us believe?

Well, it is not just the commission, is it.Lets recall this ever fresh comment from a conservative of note. Ready.1.2..3..

The position of countries has been violently altered. The modes of thought of men, the whole outlook on affairs, the grouping of parties, all have encountered violent and tremendous change in the deluge of the world. But as the deluge subsides and the waters fall short we see the dreary steeples of Fermanagh and Tyrone emerging once again. The integrity of their quarrel is one of the few institutions that have been unaltered in the cataclysm which has swept the world

W Churchill, Esq.

So, yeah, pretty much unsolvable.

It keeps coming up,

Funny that . Imagine a border coming up in debates about a country taking control of its border. Its almost like its a a border?

 on Any Questions, Question Time, Daily Politics and so on. It is presented, especially by the ignorant or duplicitous (those with Brexit-preventing intent?),

three different things here. And all in the mind of the beholder.

 as a deal-breaker,

It is that.

 an unsolvable barrier to Brexit.

To a hard Brexit, yep.

We are told by the EU Commission that a system for the Irish border must be agreed before the interminable talks move on.

And, indeed, that is what the tattermedallion rags of the UK governance system agreed

There is no doubt

I has a doubt. Therefore there is a doubt. You mean I, Brexit Britain, have no doubt

a false worry about avoiding a hard border, and probably crocodile tears about the Good Friday Agreement

This is a lovely little dig. Kudos. Remember the Arlene Forster statement on crocodiles?

. If anyone wants a hard border or the threat of it, it is the EU, not the UK or Irish governments or peoples.

The toddler allergic to water: 18-month-old girl breaks out in agonising blisters
By ALEXANDRA THOMPSON HEALTH REPORTER FOR MAILONLINE

SECONDS after she cries, sweats or has a bath Ivy Angerman suffers painful break outs after any water exposure

The 18-month-old is being taught by her mother not to cry when upset

Mother Brittany Angerman, 27, worries Ivy will be bullied due to her disorder

The only truly effective treatment is for sufferers to avoid water entirely

Ivy is thought to be the youngest of just 50 sufferers of the condition worldwide ............


I bet there's a lot more than 50 suffers we don't all run to the doctor. 
For one year I too suddenly became allergic to water. I even found that distilled water still brought me out in a rash ruling out chlorine being the culprit. Not as bad as this kiddie but bad enough that bathing became a problem.

Open Letter to NYCC "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

An Open Letter on the subject of Adult Social Care (ASC) to County Councillor Helen SWIERS [Con.], in her capacity as Chair of North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC), from County Councillor Tony RANDERSON [Lab.]. Councillor RANDERSON is also a Scarborough Borough Councillor (SBC).

~~~~~

Madam Chairman.

I cannot in all conscience support this budget, although in a quite minute way sympathise with Cllr Dadd and the Executive in their uncomfortable positions in these times of Austerity foisted upon us all by their Tory Government.

It is diabolical that once again there is a recommendation for us all to chew over of yet another 2% precept on Social Services.

This is again another double whammy upon those good residents throughout North Yorkshire.

The Government has already received finances from us all to ensure Social Services are adequately catered for, just why should our citizens have to pay twice for the same service.

To put a further extra financial burden in the County Councils court, purely because of this continuous slashing of funding from Central Government, is a step too far. It just is not fair or equitable.

I am perfectly aware that the County Council has attempted to protect adult social care spending to a much greater extent than many other councils and it now spends 42% of its budget on social care of older people along with vulnerable adults, for this they must be applauded.

However, North Yorkshire citizens pay more Council Tax and receives less government funding along with having higher costs due to the delivery of its services right across Englands largest rural authority. This has to be correct because these are Cllr Dadds words and not my own, however I agree whole heartedly with them.

This being the case I have to beg the question from North Yorkshires illustrious Members of Parliament just what they are doing, if anything, to address this ludicrous situation, where our council tax in varying parts of North Yorkshire is higher than most if not all constituencies throughout Britain. Their unacceptable silence is deafening, it clearly is the case living in their respective Ivory Towers of yes you are struggling but Im alright, Jack.

It just cannot be right that once again our residents have to dig deep into their own pockets just in order to prop up failing government economic policies.

For the avoidance of doubt, I also take issue with the continuous term Savings when we should be clearly pointing out that these are Cuts to this County Councils funding.

The link between fluoride levels and Alzheimers disease "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The link between fluoride levels and Alzheimers disease
By Contributor 22nd February 2018

Dear Editor,

The Irish Examiner previously published an excellent report on the increase in dementia in Ireland (Dementia tsunami looms, Catherine Shanahan, June 25, 2015).
In this article, Dr Ronan Collins was quoted as saying: I have seen the exponential growth of dementia in our clinical workload over the last 15 years, a true tsunami with the burden it imposes on increasing numbers of people and their families, and its cost both in terms of the lost social contribution of the person and through the economic cost of care needed.
Shanahan also reported that the economic cost of dementia illness in the Republic of Ireland was estimated to be 1.7 billion in 2010.
Like Ireland, the USA has also seen an unprecedented increase in dementia in recent decades. Between 1999 and 2014, deaths rates from Alzheimers disease in the USA rose by more than 50 per cent.
The current cost of healthcare for dementia in the USA is US$236bn (191.2bn). It is important to be aware that the USA and Ireland are two of the most fluoridated countries in the world, with in excess of 70 per cent of their populations provided with artificially fluoridated drinking water.
It is also important to note that in 2003, research published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry found that lower brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity was associated with cognitive impairment in adults, and that individuals with low AChE activity may have early Alzheimers disease changes in the brain.
Most people remain unaware that in 2006, the National Research Council of the National Academies in the USA reported that fluoride inhibits the activities of AChE, and warned of the possibilities that...

BAN IT NOW : RED PILL /FLUORIDE ITS POISON (self.CBTS_Stream) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

by ScorpioPatriot

Here you will find a list of just 9 Out of the many dangers of Fluoride.. that can be found in 95% of all toothpaste sold and knowingly added to our water supply . Its time we call for a BAN on FLUORIDE In its entirity . Our Days of being dumbed down and people being mass sterlilized is over. Here is the list ..I just came acrossed . CODE : SPAM SHARE THIS POST.

FLUORIDE IS TOXIC

In fact, the number one reason for poison control calls concerning fluoride are for children whove eaten toothpaste. Long-term ingestion is harmful to the brain, digestive system, heart, bones even the tooth enamel its supposed to help. These next 9 shocking facts will make you take a second look at your exposure to fluoride.

Weakens Skeletal Health Skeletal fluorosis is a condition resulting from fluoride consumption. The liver is unable to process fluoride, thus it passes into the bloodstream where it combines with calcium thats been leeched from the skeletal system. Youre left with weak bones, otherwise known as skeletal fluorosis. The risk has been known about for decades yet its not been established how much exposure will trigger skeletal fluorosis and the impact it has on quality of life is horrendous. The best way to protect yourself is to avoid fluoride. Recently, Chinese authorities established a link between reductions in fluoride exposure and the incidence of fluorosis.

Causes Arthritis Fluoride has been shown to cause calcification of cartilage, the essential tissue for joint health.Degenerative osteoarthritis has been linked to skeletal fluorosis. And in a study of individuals suffering from fluorosis, osteoarthritis knee conditions occurred frequently.

Toxic to the Thyroid Iodine and fluoride belong to a family of compounds known as halogens. Although iodine is beneficial to the thyroid, fluoride is not. However, because of the similarities, the thyroid can absorb fluoride instead of iodine. This is bad. Fluoride is toxic to thyroid cells; it inhibits function and causes cell death.For decades, fluoride was used to reduce thyroid function in individuals suffering from an overactive thyroid. Now and pay attention to this the range used in water fluoridation matches the levels typically used to reduce thyroid function.

Calcifies the Ultra-Important Pineal Gland Although the full capabilities of the pineal gland have been the subject of debate for centuries, its known for certain that, at a minimum, the pineal gland regulates body rhythms and wake-sleep cycles; two extremely important functions. Fluoride is especially toxic to the pineal gland, where it accumulates and calcifies the gland. In fact, by the time the average person reaches old age, their pineal gland will have higher calcium density than their bones.

So according to the latest YouGov poll...


...nearly half of Leave voters think the BBC is biased against Brexit and only 13% of them give the BBC believe the BBC to be unbiased over Brexit. 

Not surprising that of course - though the 5% of Leave voters who think the BBC is pro-Brexit is quite something!

The more interesting finding is that - despite Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell - there's no equivalent result among Remain voters. Nearly three times as many Remain voters think the BBC is unbiased. And most startling of all,  more Remain voters (14%) think the BBC is anti-Brexit than pro-Brexit (13%) - so Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell are a minority of a minority of a minority here!

YouTube operates a three strikes and you are out policy. Content creators are told that if they violate community standards three times, their channel and all its content will be deleted. Two weeks ago The Richie Allen Show received a strike. Incredibly, I was informed that I had violated the bullying and harassment guidelines. The video in question was of an interview I conducted with Wolfgang Halbig over two years ago about The Sandy Hook school shooting. There was nothing harassing about it, there was certainly no bullying. I repeatedly challenged Wolfgang in the interview and pressed him for evidence to support his theory. Nevertheless that was strike one. YouTube said that as punishment, I couldn't live stream for three months. I don't live stream anyway. But of course I was worried. I had been warned repeatedly, by commercial presenters and producers and former colleagues of mine, that the show would be targeted.

Cash Must Not Be Made the Scapegoat "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

In the War on Cash, a rare defense of physical money by an ECB Board Member.

The proposed EU-wide cash restrictions could come into effect as early as this year. But defenders of physical cash have an unexpected ally in their struggle: Yves Mersch, a member of the European Central Banks executive board. In a speech hosted by the Bundesbank last week, the Luxembourgian central banker exalted cashs value as legal tender and heaped scorn on the oft-heard argument that its anonymity only helps criminals.

Protection of privacy matters to all of us. Privacy protects people from the risk of a surveillance state and thought police, he told his audience. No particular link can be established statistically between cash and criminal activities. The focus must be on the fight against crime. Cash must not be made the scapegoat.

One of the worlds biggest issuers of notes and coins, the Bundesbank was a fitting location for a speech on the virtues of physical money. In total, 592 billion of the 1.1 trillion of banknotes in circulation at the end of 2016 were issued by the Bundesbank.

Judging by recent statements, the Bundesbank wants to preserve this arrangement. Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann, who is hotly tipped to replace Mario Draghi as ECB president in 2019, has warned that it would be disastrous if people started to believe cash would be abolished an oblique reference to the risk of negative interest rates and the escalating war on cash triggering a run on cash.

That didnt stop five national governments Cyprus, Bulgaria, Belgium, Portugal and Denmark from approaching the ECB last year to consult on measures to limit the use of cash, according to Mersch. Meanwhile, Sweden is widely regarded as the most cashless society on the planet

By using sudo npm on a non-root user (root users do not have the same effect), filesystem permissions are being modified. For example, if I run sudo npm --help or sudo npm update -g, all commands starting with sudo npm cause my filesystem to change ownership of directories such as /etc, /usr, /boot, and other critical directories needed for running the system to the current user running the command.

USA - Franklins Fluoride Return to Safe Levels "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

...............................Both Rudegair and Jamieson have stated that the morning of February 8, the city received more complaints and contacted the Department of Environmental Protection. They say that at that time, they believed the problem was probably coming from one of two of the industrial plants in the area of the reports.

That is when the city issued the Do Not Drink Water warning to what seemed to be the affected area (previous coverage)
That morning, upon inspecting the water flow, it was determined there was a malfunction of one of the valves. Uncertified field testing of the water showed elevated levels of fluoride. Staff at Barrett Flats also noticed that a pump that put the flow of fluoride into the system was not functioning, and all of the fluoride tanks were empty. They discovered three different malfunctions with the pump which allowed elevated amounts of fluoride into the system. At that time, the staff cut off the fluoride flow from both plants and began to flush the lines, while continuing to take field tests, according to Rudegeair.
Although the malfunctions were discovered on the morning of the February 8, city officials still arent certain exactly when it occurred. When asked, City Manager Tracy Jamieson said, The staff would have noticed if the fluoride was gone on the seventh, but noted that it was something that they would continue to investigate.............

Headlines in major UK Newspapers today:

The drugs do work: antidepressants are effective, study shows

Antidepressants work some more effectively than others in treating depression, according to authors of a groundbreaking study which doctors hope will finally put to rest doubts about the controversial medicine.

Millions more people around the world should be prescribed pills or offered talking therapies, which work equally well for moderate to severe depression, say the doctors, noting that just one in six people receive proper treatment in the rich world and one in 27 in the developing world.

If cancer or heart patients suffered this level of under-treatment, there would be a public outcry, they say.

Its official: antidepressants are not snake oil or a conspiracy  they work

Depression is the single largest contributor to global disability that we have a massive challenge for humankind, said John Geddes, professor of epidemiological psychiatry at Oxford University. It affects around 350 million people worldwide and instances rose almost 20% from 2005-2015.

On the Fence About Fluoride? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Are thousands of communities around the world (especially in Europe and the United States, still using fluoride? Of course.
The sad truth is that fluoride compounds that are put into our water, toothpaste, and even vitamins were never tested for safety before being approved. Recent independent research by scientists not associated with dental trade organizations have found that fluoride is NOT effective in preventing tooth decay; it actually causes tooth deformity in children, along with a long list of other atrocities. It is so toxic in fact, that toothpaste companies in the U.S. are now required to display a poison warning. Even pro-fluoridation scientists admit that there is no real research showing that fluoride helps prevent cavities.
In 1995, neuro-toxicologist and former Director of Toxicology at Forsyth Dental Center in Boston, Dr. Phyllis Mullenix, published research that shows that fluoride builds up in the brains of animals causing brain damage. When pregnant animals were administered relatively low doses of fluoride their offspring suffered brain damage and hyperactivity (ADD-like symptoms). Adult animals given fluoride experienced the opposite effect hypo-activity, or sluggishness.
The toxic effects of fluoride on the central nervous system were also confirmed by the release of previously classified government research. This research and subsequent studies show that children exposed to higher levels of fluoride had lower IQs. A study published in Brain Research shows that rats drinking only 1 part per million fluoride (NaF) in water had lesions in their brains similar to Alzheimers disease and dementia.

After Years of Crisis in Spain, Pensioners Next to Feel the Pain "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Doubts emerge as to who is saving whom.

Structural unemployment and falling wages, precarious jobs, an endless brain drain, a rapidly ageing population, and the governments constant pilfering of the national pensions pot have all taken their toll on Spains social security system. As we warned last November, the countrys Social Security Reserve Fund, which was meant to serve as a nationwide nest egg to guarantee future pension payouts given Spains burgeoning ranks of pensioners has been bled virtually dry by the government.

To avoid wiping out the fund altogether in 2017, the Spanish government extended a 10.1 billion interest-free loan to Spains social security system, which enabled it to pay out the two extra pension payments due in June and December. That way, only about 7.5 billion would be tapped from Spains public pension nest egg. Emptying the pot altogether last year would have been politically unpalatable, said El Pas. Instead, it will be emptied this year as the social security system racks up yet another massive annual shortfall.

In 2016, the system registered its biggest deficit in its history (18.1 billion), which was covered by the pension pot. In 2017, the deficit is estimated to be about 17 billion, according to the government. Thats roughly 1.5% of Spanish GDP. The deficit in 2018 is projected to be 18-20 billion

USA - Why do we have fluoride in our water? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Fluoride is found naturally in soil, water, and foods. It is also produced synthetically for use in drinking water, toothpaste, mouthwashes and various chemical products.

Water authorities add fluoride to the municipal water supply, because studies have shown that adding it in areas where fluoride levels in the water are low can reduce the prevalence of tooth decay in the local population.
Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems affecting children. Many people worldwide cannot afford the cost of regular dental checks, so adding fluoride can offer savings and benefits to those who need them.
However, concerns have arisen regarding fluoride's effect on health, including problems with bones, teeth, and neurological development..........................

SBC in the Eye AGAIN! "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

SBC in the Eye AGAIN!

For the second time this month, Scarborough Borough Council has made it into the pages of the Private Eye magazine, this time on its old stamping ground the Rotten Boroughs column where readers nationwide have been treated, in recent years, to a great many exposs of the antics of arguably the most despised local authority in the country; most recently over the inexplicable decision to waste 4million plus on destroying The Futurist Theatre.

A follow-up to these revelations is keenly anticipated; one source has promised to disclose details of the membership of what is described as a mini-cartel but only after leaving the Council. We could name them now, but why not let them suffer a while? The next local elections at SBC will take place in May 2019.  Of course, by-elections do occur, from time to time. We may not have too long to wait . . . and then the Council can commission MAZARS to investigate. (LMAO).

All this, of course, follows hard on the heels of Helen PIDDs humiliating swipe at SBC Leader Councillor Derek BASTIMAN [Con.] in the Guardian/Observer, describing him (quite accurately) as a former estate agent with a penchant for loud shirts and cold chains about right for a local authority whose activities extend to little more than emptying the trash and flogging off (or giving away) the Boroughs assets. Only yesterday, BASTIMANs Tories lost overall control of the Council.

The Tory stranglehold on the Yorkshire coast is already unravelling with todays announcement that East Riding of Yorkshire Leader Councillor Stephen PARNABY [Con.] will not stand next time. BASTIMAN is heading the same way. All political lives end in failure, right?
