Bank of America Warns of an ‘Ominous’ Sign for Stocks

The drop represents a “warning sign for equities over bonds, high yield over investment grade, and cyclical sectors over defensive ones,” chief investment strategist Michael Hartnett wrote in a note Tuesday. “Further deterioration is likely to cause risk-off trades.”

Experts point finger at Dutch oversight agency in egg scandal

Years of cuts at the Dutch food watchdog agency and a tendency among politicians to put economics ahead of public safety may be to blame for the EU's tainted-egg scandal that has spread as far as Hong Kong.

Millions of eggs have been pulled from supermarket shelves across Europe and dozens of poultry farms have closed since it emerged on August 1 that eggs contaminated with fipronil, which can harm human health, were being exported and sold.

Stanley Kubrick, Steven Spielberg & Hollywood As A Weaponized Tool Of Manipulation

On this edition of DTRH Popeye welcomes to the broadcast researcher, comedian, and author Jay Dyer. The two of them have a very in depth conversation about some of the topics, films, and people Jay discusses in his book titled ESOTERIC HOLLYWOOD: SEX, CULTS, AND SYMBOLS IN FILMS. A more fitting description could not be found of the book than that of the author himself. To quote Jay, “There is not another book out here like it, a book that tries to combine philosophy; geopolitics; comedy; conspiracy; satire; and metaphysics all into one package.” And that he does extremely well ladies and gentlemen.

The U.S. FCC Is Asleep At The Switch Regarding RF Safety Standards And Protecting The Public

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The U.S. Federal Communications Commission has dropped the ball regarding safety standards for radiofrequency (RF) limits in the United States. Furthermore, no risk assessment studies have been performed to my knowledge regarding how consumers use RF-emitting devises, e.g., hours on cell phones; working or being exposed to Wi-Fi at work or in school for a good part of their days; all the electronic games and other devices consumers use with no regard as to what harm they are encountering from non-thermal radiation waves...

The birth control pill is killing women, but no one’s warning them of the risk

The truth is, “(t)he relative risk for thrombosis in patients who take COCs [combined oral contraceptives] is three- to five-fold higher compared with that of nonusers.” Thrombosis means blood clots that can cause stroke, heart attack, blindness, brain damage, and death. Still, women are not warned about the risk of blood clots with their daily steroidal hormone pill. This is serious and senseless deception and negligence.

According to a Canadian Broadcasting Company report in June 2013, birth control pill manufacturer Bayer paid out in excess of $1 billion to settle thousands of birth control pill lawsuits in the United States. Those settlements were all related to two low-dose contraception pills, Yaz and Yasmin. At the same time, an investigation by the CBC revealed that pharmacists suspected the deaths of 23 Canadian women were attributable to those two same pills.

Did media miss real story in North Korea’s war of words?

The error, according to 38 North, lies in an inept English translation of a statement made by North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho at the ASEAN Regional Forum meeting on July 26.

The English translation was: “We will, under no circumstances, put the nukes and ballistic rockets on the negotiating table. Neither shall we flinch even an inch from the road to bolstering up the nuclear forces chosen by ourselves, unless the hostile policy and nuclear threat of the US against the DPRK are fundamentally eliminated.”

38 North says the splitting of the sentences raises several questions as to what was covered under the qualifier of “unless” the hostile policy is removed. But 38 North says the answer can be found in the Korean-language version in which the formula was presented as one sentence, not two.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's amazing what one mistranslation from a foreign language, into English, can do to people's interpretation of what actually was said.

Right now, that mistranslation could well translate into a shooting war between the US, China, and North Korea.

US firm reveals gun-toting drone that can fire in mid-air

A US technology firm has developed a drone that is able to aim and fire at enemies while flying in mid-air.

The Tikad drone, developed by Duke Robotics, is armed with a machine-gun and a grenade launcher.

The gun can be fired only by remote control, and is designed to reduce military casualties by cutting the number of ground troops required.

But campaigners warn that in the wrong hands, it will make it easier to kill innocent people.

Cell Towers On EVERY CITY Block

By Catherine J. Frompovich

California is going off the deep end, in my candid opinion.

Some members of that state’s legislature think cell towers on every block or in front of individuals’ homes are the way to go in order to have faster Wi-Fi or what I think may be an undercover strategy, comprehensive surveillance!

Pennsylvanians Are Taking On AMI Smart Meters Big Time

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The horrific harassment and health issues utility customers across the USA and elsewhere have to deal with can be exemplified in what the good folks of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have been dealing with regard to what seems to be skullduggery at state capital administrative agency, and possibly at one legislator’s level, who just happens to be Chairman of the PA House Consumer Affairs Committee.

Several groups are becoming extremely proactive and vocal now that a set of three AMI Smart Meter Opt-out bills have been introduced into the 2017-18 legislative session and don’t want those bills to be subjected to the same treatment and routes previous opt-out bills have taken over the course of the last six years...

275,000 Glittery iPhone cases recalled for causing skin irritation and chemical burns

Owners of glittery iPhones may want to exercise caution around these products. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a worldwide recall of about 275,000 liquid glitter iPhone cases by New Jersey-based company MixBin Electronics, reported Circa.com. According to the CPSC, there are over two dozen incidents of people experiencing skin irritation and chemical burns after these cases broke and spilled glitter onto their skin, including 19 which were in the U.S. At least one instance had a customer becoming permanently scarred from a chemical burn, while another experienced “swelling to her leg, face, neck, chest, upper body, and hands.”

Guess Who Edited the “Independent” Reviews That Say Monsanto’s Round-Up Is NOT Carcinogenic?

You know all those "independent" reviews saying how safe Monsanto's products are? Well, inter-company emails prove that Monsanto themselves "edited" those reviews.

The biased reviews are supposed to prove that Round-up isn't carcinogenic, but what they really prove is that Monsanto is trying to cover up information.

Researchers Trick Self-Driving Cars into Ignoring Stop Signs

Researchers have found a simple way to trick self-driving cars into misidentifying street signs, a vulnerability that could put drivers in harms way.

The group’s research paper, entitled Robust Physical-World Attacks on Machine Learning Models, outlines how simple alterations to both a “stop sign” and “right turn sign” can fool a vehicle’s onboard computer.

“We physically realized and evaluated two attacks, one that causes a Stop sign to be misclassified as a Speed Limit sign in 100% of the testing conditions, and one that causes a Right Turn sign to be misclassified as either a Stop or Added Lane sign in 100% of the testing conditions,” the paper says.

AMI Smart Meter Politics: Can Pennsylvania Pass Into Law An Opt-Out Bill Just Introduced?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The good people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania have been deprived of their U.S. and State Constitutional rights regarding the forced imposition along with aggravated harassment by utility companies of those who stood their rights for refusing an AMI Smart Meter because the law enacted (Act 129 of 2008) was written as an Opt-In bill/law.

However, many people are chomping at the bit about what’s going on in Pennsylvania and there’s been a new set of bills affecting AMI Smart Meters introduced in to the House Consumer Affairs Committee. Below is an overview of what’s happened in the past so previous bills wouldn’t be enacted, plus information why there has to be an investigation into the chairman of that committee...

POLICE RECEIVE GOD’S EYE TECHNOLOGY, GOOGLE EARTH WITH REAL TIME TIVO CAPABILITIES

“A new surveillance system that collects and records information in real-time — and then lets trackers rewind, zoom in and follow certain targets — has hit the test market streets of Baltimore, Md., and Dayton, Ohio, and in at least one crime-fighting unit in California,” the Washington Times reported.

The surveillance software sounds a lot like Google earth with real time and TIVO like capabilities, able to search any individuals location and associations through out their day. A law enforcement officer could track your daily voyage from when you leave your home in the morning until you return in the evening.

The system will be able to track your daily trends, where you travel to, who you are with, when you visit and for how long. Any crimes you may commit throughout your day could be used against you.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you; but this article just makes me profoundly uncomfortable.

That everything I say and do can be surveilled, then used against me?!?

Thank you, no; I think I will pick up an abacus, and get away from computers and the phones, if this is the reality now.

New Monsanto Emails Raise Questions On Safety Of RoundUp Products

Documents released yesterday in a lawsuit against Monsanto have resulted in new questions about the company’s efforts to influence the news media and scientific research and revealed internal debate over the safety of its highest-profile product, the weed killer Roundup.

As the New York Times notes today, new internal emails, among other things, reveal ethical objections from former employees to "ghost writing" research studies that were pawned off as 'independent' analyses.

Smartphones and Social Media Causing Mental Health Disaster with Children

Even when a seismic event—a war, a technological leap, a free concert in the mud—plays an outsize role in shaping a group of young people, no single factor ever defines a generation. Parenting styles continue to change, as do school curricula and culture, and these things matter. But the twin rise of the smartphone and social media has caused an earthquake of a magnitude we’ve not seen in a very long time, if ever. There is compelling evidence that the devices we’ve placed in young people’s hands are having profound effects on their lives—and making them seriously unhappy.

BIG DATA + PRIVATE HEALTH INSURANCE = GAME OVER

Once big data systems agglomerate enough data about you to predict whether you are likely to get sick or badly injured, insurers will be able to deny coverage (or charge so much for it that it amounts to the same thing) to anyone who is likely to get sick, forcing everyone who might ever need insurance into medical bankruptcy, and turning Medicaid into a giant "high-risk pool" that taxpayers foot the bill for.

For this to happen, we only need for insurers to have discretion over whom they insure (something they lost under Obamacare) and for insurers to not care too much if they over-exclude a few low-risk people who false-positived into the big data "high-risk" bucket -- when you go fishing with a dragnet, you always get a few dolphins along with your tuna.

The existence of more personal health data and better algorithms for sorting it suggest that private medical insurance is just incompatible with 21st century technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why everyone out there needs to educate themselves on nutrition and supplements. Knowledge is power here, folks.

For example, when did your MD happen to mention that magnesium and zinc supplements are effective tools in helping people deal with depression?!?

The Role of magnesium and zinc in depression

Probably never.

When was the last time your family practitioner mentioned the role of turmeric in preventing, and/or treating cancer?!?

Cancer Prevention With Natural Compounds

Probably never.

There are things the medical/industrial complex really doesn't want to concern itself about, because the sicker you get, the more you will opt for their treatments, which generally do not, and cannot, cure.

No Matter How Bad You Thought Big Pharma Was, This is Worse

Impropriety among big-pharmaceutical corporations has ranged from multi-billion dollar bribery rackets, to marketing drugs to patients for uses they were never approved for by regulators, to covering up known dangerous side-effects of medications they produce and sell.

MONSANTO'S LAWYERS FORGOT TO ASK A COURT TO SUPPRESS DAMNING EVIDENCE ABOUT CANCER AND CORRUPT SCIENCE

Monsanto is facing over 100 lawsuits in a Federal district court in San Francisco brought by people who attribute their non-Hodgkin's lymphoma to exposure to glyphosate in Monsanto's Roundup weed-killer, and as part of the discovery process, it submitted internal documents to the court that detailed shenanigans in the company's internal science and its dealings with regulators and the press.

Then Monsanto's lawyers neglected to a motion seeking continued protection of the confidential documents, believing that a "a standing confidentiality order" was in place, something that the plaintiff's lawyers disagree with, which is why they released a huge tranche of damning memos.

If there was EVER a corporation deserving to be sued out of existence, it is Monsanto!!

Georgia To Roll Out Tens Of Thousands Of CCTV Cameras With Real-Time Facial Recognition Capabilities

Techdirt has written about this area a few times, but these examples have all been fairly small-scale and exploratory.

By replacing the concrete with empty containers, the weight of the machine is cut by a third.

Google’s Tracking Of Offline Spending Sparks Call For Federal Investigation

Google recently announced a suite of new tools for advertisers, allowing them to link a customer’s offline credit card purchases with the things they look at online. Shockingly, some privacy advocates think this sort of tracking goes too far and have called on the federal government to investigate.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center this morning filed a complaint [PDF] with the Federal Trade Commission, asking the agency to investigate Google’s Store Sales Management consumer profiling technology and stop the company from tracking customers’ in-store purchases.

According to EPIC, Google’s system, which can allegedly track 70% of all credit and debt card transactions in the U.S., puts the personal information — including product searches, location searches and payment information — of shoppers and Internet users at risk of hacks or other data breaches.

Public Utility Consumer Abuse For Refusing AMI Smart Meters, PECO Style

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Implementation of the Internet of Things (IoT) main surveillance device, the AMI Smart Meter, has caused much grief, fright, concerns and actual bodily harms from non-thermal microwaves emitted by the ZigBee radios in all smart meters in every state. Those harms are called electromagnetic hypersensitivity (EHS), plus any of a roster of symptoms that can/may contribute to or exacerbate numerous chronic diseases.

As an EMF/RF science data researcher, I hear from people all over the globe offering personal tales of woe how electric companies, particularly in the USA, have done some nasty things to cause much grief for customers from whom utilities had received no previous problems, not even unpaid bills. But why such rather callous treatment? Well, it all revolves around the retrofitting of AMI Smart Meters on to electric, natural gas and water utility services...

Woman sues Pret A Manger for $5.5MILLION claiming the sandwich chain is tricking customers into ‘paying for air’ by using oversized packaging

Sandwich shop Pret A Manger is being sued in federal court for allegedly tricking customers into 'paying for air' by selling snacks with less content than advertised.

Yee Ting Lau filed a suit against the company on Monday in the US District Court for the Southern District Court of New York.

Lau said she filed the claim after stopping in to a Pret A Manger store on East 39th Street and Madison Avenue to pick up a Chakalaka Wrap on June 12, only to find her promised snack advertised as being nine inches long was a measly eight.

The wrap cost $7.49. Lau claims the chain is liable for $5.5million in damages for violations of New York's Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act and false advertising law.

The Real Reason Wheat is Toxic (it’s not the gluten)

Common wheat harvest protocol in the United States is to drench the wheat fields with Roundup several days before the combine harvesters work through the fields as the practice allows for an earlier, easier and bigger harvest.

Pre-harvest application of the herbicide Roundup or other herbicides containing the deadly active ingredient glyphosate to wheat and barley as a desiccant was suggested as early as 1980. It has since become routine over the past 15 years and is used as a drying agent 7-10 days before harvest within the conventional farming community.

Our Nation Depends on Restoring Product Liability

At the height of its power, ancient Rome created many new technologies which allowed it to become the supreme power over their portion of the world. These accomplishments included the invention of concrete, improved metallurgy, medicine, hygiene, plumbing, and sewage. As each of these were developed, Rome came to be dependent on them. As Rome went into decline, their ability to maintain their technologies started to fade. Aqueducts stopped delivering water. Public health failed. Metal rusted. Concrete cracked. Eventually the failure of those systems on which Rome was dependent hastened its eventual fall.

ISRAELI SPYWARE FOUND MINING USER DATA ON GOOGLE PLAY

Security researchers at Google have discovered a highly sophisticated spyware specialized in stealing users’ data that appears to have been developed by an Israeli company.

Google said the spyware dubbed “Lipizzan” was developed by Israeli start-up Equus Technologies which claims that it provides “tailor made innovative solutions for law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and national security organizations”.

According to Google:

“Lipizzan is a multi-stage spyware product capable of monitoring and exfiltrating a user’s email, SMS messages, location, voice calls, and media.

We have found 20 Lipizzan apps distributed in a targeted fashion to fewer than 100 devices in total and have blocked the developers and apps from the Android ecosystem.

Google Play Protect has notified all affected devices and removed the Lipizzan apps.”

How Prison Labor is the New American Slavery and Most of Us Unknowingly Support it

American slavery was technically abolished in 1865, but a loophole in the 13th Amendment has allowed it to continue “as a punishment for crimes” well into the 21st century. Not surprisingly, corporations have lobbied for a broader and broader definition of “crime” in the last 150 years. As a result, there are more (mostly dark-skinned) people performing mandatory, essentially unpaid, hard labor in America today than there were in 1830.

Companies such as Vector are promoting battery packs, such as Tesla's Powerwall, as part of solar energy systems.

Top 5 associations and organizations that invest in the destruction of the health of Americans

There is much more money to be made by making people sick and treating that sickness with useless chemical medicines than there is to be made by healing people, and that is definitely unfortunate. Since before World War II, many associations, administrations, agencies and corporations have plotted and planned the total debasement of American food and medicine as an insidious means of getting rich and staying rich, and it worked. Still, most Americans believe these agencies and “non-profit” organizations would never be so evil and insidious. These folks are often called “sheeple” because they follow the herd of blind “animals” over the health cliff by taking “directions” from all the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

How Do US Vaccine Rates, Policies and Children’s Health Compare to Other Countries?

By Michelle Goldstein

The United States has higher vaccination rates than any other country. The US also has very high infant mortality rates. American children experience epidemic levels of chronic diseases including autism, attention deficit disorder, learning disabilities, autoimmune disorders, asthma, epilepsy and allergies.

If vaccinations were so effective in improving the health of children, why do the statistics not bear this out? In fact, the opposite has been shown to be true. Increasing vaccination rates are correlated with growth in diseases for our children...

Foxconn's corporate welfare deal will cost Wisconsin taxpayers more than 3 billion dollars

The recent trumpist trumpeting about the plans of Chinese manufacturer Foxconn to open a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin omitted a few key details -- like the fact that Foxconn is being given a sweetheart tax-break that's topped up with 15 years' worth of guarantees of up to $200m/year in cash subsidies at taxpayer expense -- a record-setting taxpayer subsidy that exceeds the previous Wisconsin record-holder by a factor of fifty.

Top 6 BOGUS “science-based-medicine” claims founded on faulty research

(Natural News) Science! Scientists, geologists, agriculturalists, climatologists, astronomers, historians, archeologists, biologists, oncologists and geoscientists are so proud to exclaim that their field of study has research and facts to back up their favorite conversations about climate change, GMOs, vaccines, chemotherapy and infectious disease, but what if they all found out today that the majority of their favorite “evidence-based” data was crafted, scripted, manipulated, twisted and distorted to fit an insidious narrative?

Money can buy just about anything except love, and to doubt that money can buy scripted results for faked science research would be unrealistic. Still, the purveyors of fake science declare that anyone who questions their lies, deception and propaganda is “anti-science” and a “conspiracy theorist,” all in a vain effort to discredit real science and honest journalists.

Wells Fargo also defrauded 800,000 car loan customers and stole 25,000 cars

Wells Fargo didn't just steal millions from its customers with crooked overdraft fees, didn't just create 2,000,000 fraudulent accounts and threaten to blackball employees who tried to stop the frauds; didn't just defraud broke mortgage borrowers by the bushel-load -- they also defrauded 800,000 customers with car loans, forcing 274,000 of them into deliquency and "wrongfully repossessing" (that is, stealing) 25,000 of their cars.

AUSTRALIAN POLICE SEEK THE RIGHT TO INSTALL MALWARE ON HOME DEVICES DURING "EMERGENCIES"

The Queensland Police have asked the Australian Parliament to give them the right to covertly install malicious software on your home devices in order to conduct mass surveillance during times of "national emergency" The plan neatly demonstrates the ignorance and indifference of law enforcement to the realities of information security and civil liberties. Australia has emerged as a world leader in bad information policy, seeking a worldwide ban on working cryptography, with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull insisting that "The laws of mathematics are very commendable, but the only law that applies in Australia is the law of Australia."

He told The Wall Street Journal yesterday:
I do like low interest rates. I mean, you know, I’m not making that a big secret. I think low interest rates are good. I like a dollar that’s not too strong. I mean, I’ve seen strong dollars. And frankly, other than the fact that it sounds good, lots of bad things happen with a strong dollar. He also said he might reappoint Janet Yellen at the Fed, her term expires January 31, 2018 or he may go with another strong dollar hater Gary Cohn.

Roomba's Next Big Step Is Selling Maps of Your Home to the Highest Bidder

The Roomba is generally regarded as a cute little robot friend that no one but dogs would consider to be a potential menace. But for the last couple of years, the robovacs have been quietly mapping homes to maximize efficiency. Now, the device’s makers plan to sell that data to smart home device manufacturers, turning the friendly robot into a creeping, creepy little spy.

While it may seem like the information that a Roomba could gather is minimal, there’s a lot to be gleaned from the maps it’s constantly updating. It knows the floor plan of your home, the basic shape of everything on your floor, what areas require the most maintenance, and how often you require cleaning cycles, along with many other data points. And, according to Reuters, that data is the future of its business strategy:

“There’s an entire ecosystem of things and services that the smart home can deliver once you have a rich map of the home that the user has allowed to be shared,” said [iRobot CEO Colin] Angle.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And apparently, there is no way, currently, to opt out of this.

I think consumers who want the convenience of the Roomba need to start petitioning the manufacturer of this appliance for an "opt -out" amendment regarding selling information about their home, to either their purchase agreement, or their warranty, to prevent this.

I am sure that this would come with a fee as well, but at least you have some assurance of your privacy when the Roomba is being used.

The Failed MMR Vaccine Policies on College Campuses

By Michelle Goldstein

Most states have enacted laws requiring college students to obtain the MMR vaccine in order to attend their universities. This vaccine allegedly offers protection against the diseases measles, mumps and rubella. The effectiveness of Merck’s MMR vaccine against mumps has been questioned by many scientists.

Meanwhile, the past five years have witnessed skyrocketing increases of mumps outbreaks across college campuses, among those students vaccinated, providing further evidence of the MMR vaccine’s failure...

Congress has already provided up to a billion dollars over the next ten years to implement the program.

IDAHO EMBRACES NEOFEUDALISM WITH ITS “NONCOMPETE” LEGISLATION

Many of you may not be familiar with what I’m talking about, so I’ll start with some excerpts from a very good New York Times article on the subject, and then get into some detailed commentary at the end.

Here’s a brief overview of the situation from the piece, Noncompete Pacts, Under Siege, Find Haven in Idaho:

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho achieved a notable distinction last year: It became one of the hardest places in America for someone to quit a job for a better one.

The state did this by making it easier for companies to enforce noncompete agreements, which prevent employees from leaving their company for a competitor.

“We’re trying to build the tech ecosystem in Boise,” said George Mulhern, chief executive of Cradlepoint, a company here that makes routers and other networking equipment. “And anything that would make somebody not want to move here or start a company here is going to slow down our progress.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a word with which to characterise this legislation, from a standpoint of worker's rights; that word is, "insane".

Were this to go all the way to the Supreme Court, my guess would be that the Court would rule against it.

U.S. Taxpayers Fund Heroin Vaccine, Despite U.S. Government Being The Biggest Heroin Dealer

Many of us just pay our taxes on a yearly basis and have absolutely no idea where they’re going. Are they funding new medical research? War? The elite’s agenda? The reality is that your taxpayers’ dollars support all of these things and more, despite the fact that you may not knowingly support them yourself. A recent study published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society titled “Development of a Clinically Viable Heroin Vaccine” has been making recent headlines, hinting at fewer heroin users in the United States. The irony here is that taxpayer dollars are being spent to develop a vaccine against drug users supporting the very drug trade the U.S. government and the medical industry have so heavily invested in maintaining.

NBC News reported last week that Customs and Border Protection (CBP) concedes it lacks authority to access data stored only on the cloud when its agents examine the electronic devices of US citizens crossing the border. The NBC news report, Border Patrol Says It’s Barred From Searching Cloud Data on Phones, was based on a CBP Letter, dated June 20, sent in response to written questions posed to CBP acting commissioner Kevin McAleenan by Senator Ron Wyden. Last April, Wyden and Senator Ron Paul introduced the Protecting Data at the Border Act that require border officials get a warrant based on probable cause before they could to search or seize cellphones at the border.
