Article: The Man Who Creates Artificial Glaciers To Meet The Water Needs Of Ladakh

Maharashtra govt arresting protesters

"Over 50 people were arrested outside the Wankhede stadium yesterday where the new BJP State government celebrated its election victory. The protest was against the brutal massacre of a young Dalit man and both his parents. They were hacked to death and their bodies chopped into pieces and thrown into a well. The reason? The boy had dared to have a relationship with a Maratha (upper caste) girl. Her family now in BJP also had ties with NCP and Shiv Sena. The police has made no arrests. The new BJP government elect is absolutely silent.

The protest lasted only a few minutes before the police swooped in. By the time we joined the protestors they had already been whisked away. We went to the Yellow gate police chowky where they were taken. The guards at the gate denied they were brought there at all. On being told that they could not tell such lies to us they admitted that the protesters were inside but they had been asked to keep it quiet.

The next days English press was equally silent. The Times of India carried glowing reports on the Wankhede function but not one line on the protest and arrest.

All the news thats fit to print?"

Reforms or loot?

""Industrialists want free land before investing in Punjab. Is this what is meant by reforms? And if this is reform please tell me what is loot. Among those who want free land in Punjab are: Siemens, Kansai Nerolac, Mahindra & Mahindra, Glaxo Smithkline, Infosys, Herman Finochem. Sanofi Pharma and Maico India. They want free land on the same pattern as Punjab's deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal had sometimes back given 70 acres of land to International School of Business just for one rupee. Apollo Hospital in New Delhi similarly had got 15 aces of land in the heart of the city for Re 1/acre. The list is endless. In other words, it means reforms is another word to justify the loot of natural or financial resources. But if you give subsidies to the poor and hungry, these are termed as socialist and therefore anti-reform. So subsidies for the rich are reforms but subsidies for the poor are wasteful expenditure/dole. Reforms means only the rich should be subsidised.

Sometimes back I had written a blog on policy paralysis. When industries don't get freebies, they yell at the top of their voice calling it as policy paralysis.""

Neutrality means refusing to believe both True and False

Neutrality doesn't mean claiming a thing as false merely on the premise that we don't have sufficient evidence to say it's true. Where is the convincing evidence to say it's false? Even that needs proving. Calling it false means adopting an opinion just the same as calling it true means. Neutrality means you refuse to say either True or False; and are open to exploring both angles or if not that then leaving it unjudged.

Video : Anti-GM field trial protest at Rahuri, MH

http://youtu.be/6yWnMMMiZ6I
Anti-GM protest and visit at Rahuri, MH where field trials are going on in an agri university without proper oversight. This video by Vasudha Nirmitee group covers the whole event, incl explaining the issue in detail, in Hindi language (which I'm seeing for the first time)

One surprising thing in the video : The pro-GM morcha that came as a counter to this one.. was accusing this group of being agents of pesticide companies. Knowing personally how deeply most of the members of the anti-GM group are involved in organic farming and how they are originally anti-pesticide, that was so funny! I think that stark reality ought to be brought out further : it's hard evidence that the pro-GM morcha was a fake one.

Non Vaccinating Pediatrician Shares Her Experience

To my friends, I know you want to be on the safe side. My only question is : do you know exactly which side is the safe one? How much time have you spent finding out?

Quoting:
Evanston, IL physician Toni Bark has been an MD since 1986. Back then, she was "quite upset" when she saw a child that was unvaccinated.  Of course she hadn't really been taught anything about the vaccine schedule or side effects.  She had merely been told that kids have to be vaccinated.  In the early 90's, Dr. Bark went back to school and studied "classical homeopathy."  Since then, she sees medicine and especially vaccines, in a whole new light.

Dr. Bark has seen the damage that vaccines can cause because a number of the families she has in her practice come to her because their first child suffered a vaccine reaction and they didn't want to vaccinate their other children.

"What I notice is that children who come to me from other practices where they've been fully vaccinated often are--well they are the kids in my practice with asthma, panic disorder, OCD, pandas, autism, Asperger's.  My kids who've never been vaccinated in my practice, I don't see those issues.  I don't have one child who was not vaccinated who also has asthma, food allergies, or Asperger's or autism, or Crohn's or ulcerative colitis-none of these chronic, either chronic inflammatory or chronic autoimmune diseases..

I don't have that in my population that never was vaccinated-or even that was probably vaccinated very delayed and selectively. But often those kids are in families where the first child was vaccinated fully and there was a vaccine reaction, so the parents decided not to.

"I can only make comments about my own patient population.  I can say in my patient population, the kids with chronic illness are the kids who were vaccinated.  And the kids that weren't vaccinated, I don't have any of those children on medications.  None of them have chronic illness. I can't think of one that has any kind of chronic illness. Not one.

"I hear very similar stories.  I have to believe the parents when-in twenty years, I've probably had a few hundred families come to me and tell me a very similar story.  Which is, their first child received vaccinations, whether it was at birth or whether it was two months in, or whether it was six months in-at some point they received a round of vaccinations where they had high pitched screaming, fever, arching the back, and they were never the same. ."

Dr. Bark noted that some parents even had videos showing the obvious behavior changes before and after vaccinations.
"I don't understand how people can say that's not true or it's coincidental when there are so many parents with the same story.  And these are not parents who are anti-vaccine. These are parents who didn't even question the schedule or anything. They just let the doctors give the kids the vaccines on schedule."
Dr. Bark recounted how back when she was a resident in the emergency room, parents would bring in their children with febrile seizures and arching backs, and "they had been in the vaccine clinic that day or the day before."

Dr. Bark said, "A lot of physicians are really, really in the dark about policy, how vaccines are made, how the advisory committees work, the actual history on how small pox was eradicated, the actually history on the first several attempts on the polio vaccine. We kind of tend to rewrite history to make it look like pharmaceuticals saved the day and vaccines saved the day and when you take a closer look, that's actually not really the reality.

"That's kind of where I'm at now that I really look at things closely and question them because I know that you cannot believe the mantra coming from, I hate to say it, our regulatory agencies, because they have been captured. The mantra from the CDC, I always question because I know better now.  They might be telling the truth, but they might not be,.

"In my practice, and that's all I can speak for, children with Crohn's and ulcerative colitis and asthma and Asperger's and autism and pandas, have all been vaccinated. And my unvaccinated population, which is several hundred, if not maybe a few thousand, I don't have one autistic kid in that group."

We often hear the call for a comparison study looking at health outcomes of fully vaccinated and never vaccinated children.  We also need to talk to the doctors who either don't vaccinate their patients or don't vaccinate according to the ever-expanding vaccine schedule.

And the issue isn't just looking for autism in these patients. We need to examine their total health picture.  We need to ask, is an unchecked, unsafe vaccine schedule making our kids sick?

Here is a discussion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VQJ1XdA60dQ&feature=youtu.be between Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Dr. Bark regarding the movie, Bought. http://boughtmovie.com/

PM's Mann ki Baat

Forwarding...

While we appreciate that bowing to the demand of people, Prime Minister spoke on the issue of black money, what he said on the issue was very disappointing. During his election campaign Mr. Modi was quoting exact figures of black money stashed away in foreign accounts. Not just that, he had been claiming that once the money came back, all Indians would get 15 lakh rupees each. His party president Mr. Rajnath Singh had promised to bring back all the black money stashed away in foreign bank accounts in hundred days. From Mr. Subramanian Swami to Baba Ramdev, all his supporters and campaigners had claimed they had "exact" figure of the black money in foreign accounts. It is shocking that in today's address Mr. Modi said that he had no clue how much money was deposited in illegal bank accounts abroad. He also said that he did not know what the road map would be.What surprises us is the fact that when the BJP was out of power it claimed to have all the information as well as figures, and from inflation to black money, it had a road map for everything . And after assuming power the party and its Prime Minister claim that they have no figures, no road map.

And I could never spot a Muslim or a Hindu in the film. I could only see poor and despairing victims and savage, godless criminals. I could only see innocent childhood scarred by forces of hate. I could only see helpless women ravaged by bestiality. I could see my own mother, my sister, my daughter in the frames. And I could see the brutal chief of a bloodthirsty mob. Let me know if you could spot a leader in the rousing oratory of hate, a good Hindu in the rioting mob and a bad Muslim in a half-burnt corpse.


Water is the new oil: How corporations took over a basic human right
"to just divert more water doesn't make any sense. We need a new model that isn't about urbanization, that doesn't support megacities, basically. And we need to stop thinking we can somehow reroute water to some giant megacity because that's not happening around the world. It's just getting more and more and more expensive, so we've got to start thinking about the cost of all of this. There are some movements in architecture like the re-localization movement, which is about de-urbanization and about building compact, sustainable walking cities. And so there are tons of ideas for how we can do things differently, but I think we need to move people, not water."

Patent document of a fuel-less sea-glider, which copies the techniques of sea mammals like dolphins to use their muscles to shrink their bodies and compress the inhaled air, becoming heavier then water and get pulled down, and forward (gliding); and then at a depth they release their muscles, enlarging their bodies, becoming lighter, and so are pushed up, and glide forward too.
So, rather than expend energy in continuously propelling an object forward, once can simply use a much smaller amount of energy to compress/expand the object and thus be propelled forward by gravity and buoyancy.

Ebola treatment : Blood transfusion from ebola survivors is helping cure other patients of same blood type, to reinforce their blood with the antibodies that have been successful in countering the virus. but is being unreported and even discouraged officially. US's first victim's family has also expressed anger about him being denied blood transfusion.
These blood transfusions are being highly valued by people and medical personnel on the ground in the affected countries.
Another doctor who got cured in Africa like this and then returned to US, is going to "pay it forward" and give his blood to an NBC cameraman who has contracted the disease.
The experimental drugs being used to try and cure from Ebola, also use the same strategy, of re-inforcing the patient's blood with more antibodies, but with artificial patented antibodies made in a much more complicated way.
It has a 80% cure rate, as opposed to Ebola's 80% kill rate.
This kind of turns the tables : Similar to how the disease can spread, even the cure can be spread from human to human via blood transfusion!
The official agenices are coming out against it, because this is a natural cure.

Hiring in groups of 3

Thinking aloud here...

Open challenge to organizations desperate for good talent : change your recruitment pattern thus:

Give a combined job description of what you need from a team of 3 people. And invite job applications from groups of 3 buddies rather than from individuals. Instead of giving Rs.30k/month salary to one person and expecting him/her to deliver 3 logon ka kaam (which will NEVER happen the way you want no matter how much money you throw at it, please learn and realize this by now), pay each person Rs.10k only, but hire 3 ppl who are already a team who will then deliver a lot more than that 30k single person would.

There's something magical about the number 3 when it comes to teamwork. Through college and school, I've mostly been in groups of 3 friends doing things together. In two people, there's chance of conflict and the team abruptly falling apart, but with 3 there's stability, much like a tripod stand.

Campaign to Stop Killer Robots

Statement by ClearPath Robotics
13 August 2014

An open letter to the public –

The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots was launched in April 2013, bringing the topic of "killer robots" under public scrutiny – and for good reason.

To the people against killer robots: we support you.

This technology has the potential to kill indiscriminately and to proliferate rapidly; early prototypes already exist. Despite our continued involvement with Canadian and international military research and development, Clearpath Robotics believes that the development of killer robots is unwise, unethical, and should be banned on an international scale.

The Context
How do we define "killer robot"? Is it any machine developed for military purposes? Any machine which takes actions without human direction? No. We're referring specifically to "lethal autonomous weapons systems (LAWS)"; systems where a human does not make the final decision for a machine to take a potentially lethal action.

Clearpath Robotics is an organization that engineers autonomous vehicles, systems, and solutions for a global market. As current leaders in the research and development space for unmanned vehicles, making this kind of statement is a risk. However, given the potentially horrific consequences of allowing development of lethal autonomous robots to continue, we are compelled to insist upon the strictest regulation of this technology.

The Double-Edged Sword
There are, of course, pros and cons to the ethics of autonomous lethal weapons and our team has debated many of them at length. In the end, however, we, as a whole, feel the negative implications of these systems far outweigh any benefits.

Is a computer paired with the correct technology less likely to make rash, stress-driven decisions while under fire? Possibly. Conversely, would a robot have the morality, sense, or emotional understanding to intervene against orders that are wrong or inhumane? No.

Would computers be able to make the kinds of subjective decisions required for checking the legitimacy of targets and ensuring the proportionate use of force in the foreseeable future? No.

Could this technology lead those who possess it to value human life less? Quite frankly, we believe this will be the case.

This is an incredibly complex issue. We need to have this discussion now and take a stance; the robotics revolution has arrived and is not going to wait for these debates to occur.

Clearpath's Responsibility
Clearpath Robotics strives to improve the lives of billions by automating the world's dull, dirty, and dangerous jobs. This belief does not preclude the use of autonomous robots in the military; we will continue to support our military clients and provide them with autonomous systems – especially in areas with direct civilian applications such as logistics, reconnaissance, and search and rescue.

In our eyes, no nation in the world is ready for killer robots – technologically, legally, or ethically. More importantly, we see no compelling justification that this technology needs to exist in human hands. After all, the development of killer robots isn't a necessary step on the road to self-driving cars, robot caregivers, safer manufacturing plants, or any of the other multitudes of ways autonomous robots can make our lives better. Robotics is at a tipping point, and it's up to all of us to decide what path this technology takes.

Take Action
As a company which continues to develop robots for various militaries worldwide, Clearpath Robotics has more to lose than others might by advocating entire avenues of research be closed off. Nevertheless, we call on anyone who has the potential to influence public policy to stop the development of killer robots before it's too late.

We encourage those who might see business opportunities in this technology to seek other ways to apply their skills and resources for the betterment of humankind. Finally, we ask everyone to consider the many ways in which this technology would change the face of war for the worse. Voice your opinion and take a stance. #killerrobots

For Free Energy Critics


Has anyone else noticed this : In most fields / sectors, the critic is someone who first tries out the thing in question for himself/herself, and then makes his/her jugements. A food critic will actually bother to eat at the restaurant first; a movie critic will actually go watch that movie first. And then they let loose.

But in the realm of free energy technologies, the critics seem to feel no need to oblige for any honest first-hand experience. You won't see them actually visiting or inspecting those labs.

They'll just use the standard textbook theories to dismiss any new thing straight from their armchairs. At best they drill into the sentences the inventors SAY and nit-pick them as if it's a capital crime to be not fully explanatory or fluent or miss out some detail or make an error.

Get off your butt, critics.

Open challenge to actually go visit one of these experiments, scout the area, video/photo your evidence, take the trouble of doing measurements etc and THEN publish your dismissal of said technology.

And since we know how one movie is different from the other even if both have the same director and so need to be seen and evaluated separately, you're going to have to repeat that process for the next experiment too; no laziness of dismissing all future experiments based on the failure of one. Every inventor makes failed outputs first, in case you didn't know that.

Coca-Cola plant in Mehdiganj near Varanasi

This is a good example case for illustrating what happens when we see only the economics numbers when judging a situation. Our media and our experts and of course our leaders will tell us that we should encourage MNCs to do business in India, it will lead to more jobs, rise in GDP and more prosperity for the country. We paint all enterprises with the same brush and completely forget that every particular industry has particular material properties. There is a world of difference between a services company and a soft drinks manufacturer for example, but our typical reporting and analysis don't care about the differences.

Below is what that seemingly innocent and optimistic "Dil Mangey More" perspective usually translates into once you get on the ground. The only way ANY soft drinks industry can be viable or "sustainable" in a water-stressed country like India is if they were rain-water-harvesting all their water, or if they were operating only during rains (which is financially impossible for a 24x7x365 industry). And that would make their drinks too expensive to do any business in India.

On top of that, this excerpt is raising a lot more questions : How the heck is a beverage-making industry, which manufactures a product for human consumption, having such toxic pollutants in their effluents that they need to be prevented from seeping into the ground? What exactly are they putting in??

"And pollution from the plant has destroyed our fields." In 2002-2003, construction work on a national highway blocked the plant's effluent discharge drain, flooding the nearby fields with wastewater and destroying hectares of standing crop. Farmers say that effluents seeped into the soil, rendering it infertile.

Following complaints about Coca-Cola's bottling plants in Kerala and West Bengal, the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) conducted a survey of 16 soft-drink bottling plants across India. The effluent sludge of eight Coca-Cola bottling plants was found to have unacceptably high levels of cadmium, lead and chromium. Mehdiganj was one of them.

P M Ansari, Additional Director, CPCB, explained that the high heavy metal concentrations posed a health risk if the sludge was not disposed of correctly. "The sludge must be stored in lined, concrete landfills specifically designed for this purpose." At present, Uttar Pradesh has no such landfills."

Story of Stuff Project


Coca-Cola has been ordered to shut down operations in Mehdiganj, India for using too much water and violating pollution laws, but the corporation wants to keep business running as usual.

Tell Coca-Cola to respect Mehdiganj villagers' right to clean water and to shut down its plant immediately!


Coca-Cola is determined to drain the village of Mehdiganj, India, dry despite a government order to shut down the plant for using too much water and violating pollution limits. According to Indian authorities, the groundwater level in the village has gone from "safe" to "over-exploited" -- the worst designation of groundwater, before it dries up completely -- in the time the Coke plant has been operating.

Mehdiganj villagers have been protesting against the Coke plant for years. The villagers' protests have escalated as their wells have dried up, forcing them to walk ever-greater distances for fresh water. As the water level drops, crop yields are dropping with it, sucking out the economic basis of the village and endangering the livelihoods of thousands of residents. Meanwhile, Coke has spent much of this year pressing for a massive expansion of the plant that would increase water use by five times. The company has shown that it is totally disconnected from the danger it is imposing on the village.

Tell Coke to follow the Pollution Control Board's order to close its Mehdiganj plant immediately!

Studies conducted by both the Indian government agencies and independent organizations have found that Coke has located many of its plants in water-stressed areas of India and bottling operations in these areas have threatened groundwater in many places. Furthermore, Coke plants have also been caught polluting the surroundings and selling toxic waste to unsuspecting farmers to be used as fertilizer.

After years of watching groundwater levels drop dramatically, Mehdiganj villagers finally have Coca-Cola on the defensive. One villager, sixty year-old Savitri Rai, says police beat her when she first began protesting the plant a decade ago. In June this year, under pressure from the community, the government ordered the Coke plant to be shut down for a number of violations. Coke has appealed the closure in the courts and has been allowed to temporarily operate while the courts consider the appeal. Meanwhile, a massive expansion that Coke had been planning, which would greatly expand the rate at which it sucked up Mehdiganj's water, was permanently denied.

Tell Coke to respect villagers' right to water and end its exploitive operations in Mehdiganj, India!

While there is no denying Coca-Cola's enormous set of resources, we have people power on our side. In joining in solidarity with the people of Mehdiganj, our Community can influence global public opinion and help villagers secure access to clean, safe, local water. Water is becoming an increasingly scarce resource around the world. Many corporations argue that they are free to use as much water as they want, even if it makes entire areas uninhabitable. Careful stewardship of our resources is at the heart of our Story, ensuring that we'll be around to continue telling stories long into the future.

The Story of Stuff Project works to draw connections between the cycle of production and   consumption and its impact on society. By joining in the stories of communities such as Mehdiganj, we can help illuminate the impact that corporations like Coca-Cola have on peoples' lives. Coke tries to bill itself as a socially responsible company but our Community has the   power to expose its dirty practices to customers worldwide, bringing much-needed pressure for positive change. When our Community unites behind a cause as important as this one, we can create a force that can't be ignored.

Thank you for all you do!

11 part documentary series on alternative perspectives on Cancer

This series has been eye-opening. Must-watch for anyone who wants to know alternative perspectives in the field, particularly in matters of nutrition and lifestyle choices that one can take as preventive measure. From a public health policy perspective, it shows up a lot of low-cost measures that can be tried, for those families who simply cannot afford the very expensive mainstream methods in any case. And raises a lot of questions too of course on why some obvious things have been neglected by our medical fraternity. My mom passed away from cancer (actually, from chemotherapy!) when I was 17. I was able to relate with a lot of the things shared here and am able to connect the dots of many of the factors that led to her illness, and how after some signs of improvement things had suddenly gone downhill.

I am left handed

I am left handed. I was born that way. I cannot write or do delicate
tasks with my right hand no matter how much I try, whereas my left
hand can do them easily. Since holding the tumbler is better done by
my left hand, obviously I use my right hand when I have to wash myself
during daily morning routines. Now that would really offend some of my
more religious fellow humans, as our traditions of taking prasad,
doing puja etc with the right hand have evolved with the assumption
that the entire population is right-handed only. So I have take care
to keep that little detail private and not tell anybody. Still, I have
to eat, write etc with my left hand only and that is visible to all..
it's impossible to hide.

Should the majority of the population which is right-handed, consider
me to be a threat to their way of life? Should they all look down upon
me, treat me as sub-human because of my left-handedness? What if I was
also persecuted for being born left-handed the same way a minority of
the general population is born LGBT? And would it be OK to demand that
I make all the efforts to change to being right-handed just to make
the rest of the right-handed people comfortable?

A Hindu-Muslim couple walks into a bar...

Carrying on the baton from:
http://indianexpress.com/article/opinion/columns/a-hindu-muslim-couple-walks-into-a-bar

A Hindu-Muslim couple walked into a bar. Like it happens in the marriage courts of India, the bartender told them that he cannot serve them if they're from different religions. The one option that does exist: most bartenders of the country don't even know about it; and under that the bartender will first call the parents of the duo and find out if they have any objection to these two having drinks together (!!). To avoid all this, the quickest way for them to get to their drinks was by having one of them converting into the other's religion. Even in that, converting one way was easier than converting the other way. The couple picked the easiest option, got their drinks, and when they walked out of the bar to go home, were attacked by some local organization's members for committing Love Jihad. A vendor sitting across the street watching all of this, said to his friend, "Funny. How in the world does having some drinks together have anything at all to do with religion?"

Simple blood plasma antibodies transfusion from Ebola survivors shown to cure Ebola; expensive GM ZMapp "cure" is a cheap imitation of the same thing

"Convalescent serum uses human antibodies of survivors.  ZMapp uses mouse antibodies that have been genetically modified and then grown in genetically modified tobacco plants. "
This needs more looking into, of course. But there are living survivors swearing by it. If true, then it turns the tables on the conventional isolationist medical paradigm : rather than staying away, people can come together to cure each other; survivors can turn from victims into heroes, and "infect" several victims with the cure and the cure can be made to spread and propagate the same way the disease is, rather than relying upon expensive, side-effect-laden chemicals manufactured by profiteering pharma giants.
Copy-posting from http://www.infowars.com/is-a-possible-ebola-cure-being-hidden-from-the-public/



Is convalescent serum unproven as the WHO says? It's a treatment technique that's been used effectively for 124 years, called passive immunity.

Dr. Kent Brantley and others who have contracted Ebola have been eager to receive and to pass on blood from survivors of Ebola.  He received blood plasma antibodies from a patient he treated in Africa that survived.  After Dr. Brantley survived, he donated plasma antibodies to the next American doctor to be infected, Dr. Sacra who also recovered.  Brantley has also donated blood to two others who are still fighting Ebola: Ashoka Kukpo, the NBC cameraman, and Nina Pham the first Dallas nurse to contract the disease.

Brantley is not the only medical worker who appears to believe the treatment is effective.  Will Pooley, the British nurse who survived Ebola, flew to Atlanta to offer his blood and a Spanish Ebola survivor flew to Spain to give her blood to a Spanish priest with Ebola, but arrived too late.

In Africa, demand for survivors' blood has created a "black market" that the World Health Organization (WHO) says needs to be shut down with help from governments.

The WHO said months ago that the treatment is "unproven" but "promising" and that they need to "look into" it someday.

Still no word on when that's going to happen.

As mainstream media casts doubt on convalescent serum's effectiveness, it promotes the GMO drug ZMapp as a "miracle".

ZMapp was created by a small company backed by DARPA, the military industrial complex's bio-weapons bureaucy and Big Tobacco.

Mass production of the GMO drug is ramping up with funding from the Gates Foundation, and the bio-pharmaceutical industry.

Which begs the questions:  why develop a GMO imitation if the human version is "unproven" and why delay treatment when a large supply of convalescent serum is now available from survivors?

DARPA's "miracle" drug imitates a strategy WHO says is unproven
A vial of diphtheria antitoxin, dated 1895

A vial of diphtheria antitoxin, dated 1895

ZMapp imitates convalescent serum's method to fight Ebola — antibodies.  Unlike a vaccine where an antigen (usually a dead or weakened version of the disease) is supposed to provoke the body's immune system into producing antibodies over time to prevent the disease, convalescent serum supplies antibodies by a transfusion of the plasma (serum) of a survivor (convalescent).  Those antibodies can begin fighting the disease immediately, jump starting or boosting the person's immune response.

The method is called passive immunity and it has a long history — all the way back to the 1880's.  German scientist Emil von Behring won a Nobel Prize in 1901 for his work in successfully treating diphtheria and tetanus with convalescent serum.  Blood plasma antibodies were used in the early 1940s to prevent and treat measles and hepatitis.  Techniques for large scale fractionation of plasma to separate antibodies were developed by Cohn and funded by the US government as World War II preparation.  Most recently a Hong Kong scientist used convalescent serum to successfully treat patients in the SARS outbreak.

He claimed a quick recovery and no side effects for the 70 patients he treated.

study of convalescent serum treatment for Ebola patients was done during the 1995 outbreak.  It was a small study, with only 8 patients.  But all previous Ebola outbreaks have been relatively small.  This outbreak only affected 316 people with 80% casualty rate.  In the study, 7 of 8 convalescent serum patients survived — a 12.5% casualty rate.  The one who died no longer had fever but had an epileptic seizure and was found dead, next to her bed, with a head injury.  So it's possible that it was 100% effective.

Table1

The study looked very promising but when it was released as a paper in 1999, they added anecdotal accounts of 12 other patients who received convalescent serum, 11 of whom died.  Why they added this is puzzling since, unlike the study, we know nothing about the patients, donors or blood serum.  The study was carefully monitored to be sure that patients received clean blood with no Ebola antigens or other diseases present.  The age and condition of patients and donors was documented along with how long it had been since the donors had recovered.  None of that information was given for the footnoted patients.

How does ZMapp compare to convalescent serum?

Convalescent serum uses human antibodies of survivors.  ZMapp uses mouse antibodies that have been genetically modified and then grown in genetically modified tobacco plants.

The ZMapp vaccine was used in a test of 18 monkeys.  All survived.  In humans, it has been given to 7 patients worldwide — 3 Liberians and 4 westerners.  It's unpublished whether the 3 Liberians who received ZMapp also got convalescent serum.  Two survived, one died.  Of the remaining four, Kent Brantley and Will Pooley got both ZMapp and convalescent serum. Nancy Writebol got ZMapp and blood transfusions but not convalescent serum.  She said she began to have an allergic reaction to ZMapp and they reduced the dosage.  Miguel Pajares, a Spanish priest, received only ZMapp and died.  So its not clear whether ZMapp or convalescent serum cured Brantley and Pooley since they got both.  Of patients who received only ZMapp, 1 survived and 1 didn't. In fairness, the trial is too small to draw conclusions but with only a 50% survival for the "miracle" drug, it's the only one being put into production.

Table

What is the treatment strategy planned by governments and corporations?

A large supply of real human antibodies is already on hand from thousands of Ebola survivors.  Testing donor blood for disease and creating a donor registry to match blood types could be done today but the plan is to pursue the artificial patented approach.

The Gates Foundation and bio-pharmaceutical industry want to grow the ZMapp GMO antibodies in animals rather than plants.  They say that approach will increase production in the long run but delay deployment of the drug for months.

By the time Big Pharma ramps up production of the GMO "plantibodies" used in ZMapp, Ebola will be a worldwide pandemic at the current exponential rate of growth in Africa.  Even though the safety and efficacy will not be known, a lot of customers will literally be dying for their product.  They may be "forced" to charge exorbitant prices for a limited supply.

Most of the treatments in development utilize genetic attacks against the Ebola virus.  What are the potential side effects of these treatments?  To stop a pandemic they will be rushed to market without testing for safety or effectiveness.  Even if a drug is safe and effective, will dangerous additives be present when it's mass produced?  And will these untested drugs be mandated for the population?

In contrast to experimental GMO drugs, as long as convalescent serum is matched for blood type and screened for disease, there are no dangerous side effects.

Even though convalescent serum looks promising, it is not a magic cure either.   Palliative care, keeping the patients hydrated and electrolytes balanced, are major factors in survival.   The patients physical condition and the health of their immune system is even more important.

Laying Groundwork for Medical Tyranny and Record Profits

Cleanup crews delayed for days, nurses treating the patient for 2 days without protective clothing, a nurse with Ebola and manifesting a high fever given the OK to fly commercially , etc.  Is it merely jaw-dropping incompetence?  If it's incompetence, then why haven't the people in charged been fired or at least transferred?  Given the implicit endorsement of the violations of protocols and officials at the federal, state and local level not only lying to the public about risks but actually modeling behavior that will spread a pandemic, it looks like they would like another crisis that will be an opportunity for the government to increase control via a medical tyranny and for their corporation friends to transfer more wealth from the public to themselves.

Ignoring and dismissing transfusions of antibodies from survivors to patients while promoting a GMO imitation has implications beyond mere profiteering. We've seen this before with natural treatments denounced as ineffective while synthetic imitations of the same treatment are promoted e.g., medical marijuana versus marinol.

But if convalescent serum, used successfully for treatment for 124 years and highly valued by Ebola survivors, is not known to be effective, then why is the government mimicking it with GMO plantibodies?  Even with a 70% casualty rate, there are thousands of survivors who could become donors.  All that's needed for immediate deployment of the treatment is a donor registry and testing.  But western governments and NGO's are going to focus on a "magic" solution that won't be available for months fiddling as Africa burns down.   In only 2 months, at the current rate of growth, Ebola will infect between 5% and 15% of the population.  Many will flee the chaos and death and it will go worldwide.  The potential for population culling, medical tyranny and corporate profits are staggering.

Libertarian Municipalism : direct democracy experiment in Rojava, Syria/Kurdistan

http://www.popularresistance.org/why-is-the-world-ignoring-the-revolutionary-kurds-in-syria/

Excerpt:

The autonomous region of Rojava, as it exists today, is one of few bright spots – albeit a very bright one – to emerge from the tragedy of the Syrian revolution. Having driven out agents of the Assad regime in 2011, and despite the hostility of almost all of its neighbours, Rojava has not only maintained its independence, but is a remarkable democratic experiment. Popular assemblies have been created as the ultimate decision-making bodies, councils selected with careful ethnic balance (in each municipality, for instance, the top three officers have to include one Kurd, one Arab and one Assyrian or Armenian Christian, and at least one of the three has to be a woman), there are women's and youth councils, and, in a remarkable echo of the armed Mujeres Libres (Free Women) of Spain, a feminist army, the "YJA Star" militia (the "Union of Free Women", the star here referring to the ancient Mesopotamian goddess Ishtar), that has carried out a large proportion of the combat operations against the forces of Islamic State.

How can something like this happen and still be almost entirely ignored by the international community, even, largely, by the International left? Mainly, it seems, because the Rojavan revolutionary party, the PYD, works in alliance with Turkey's Kurdish Worker's Party (PKK), a Marxist guerilla movement that has since the 1970s been engaged in a long war against the Turkish state. Nato, the US and EU officially classify them as a "terrorist" organisation. Meanwhile, leftists largely write them off as Stalinists.

But, in fact, the PKK itself is no longer anything remotely like the old, top-down Leninist party it once was. Its own internal evolution, and the intellectual conversion of its own founder, Abdullah Ocalan, held in a Turkish island prison since 1999, have led it to entirely change its aims and tactics.

The PKK has declared that it no longer even seeks to create a Kurdish state. Instead, inspired in part by the vision of social ecologist and anarchist Murray Bookchin, it has adopted the vision of "libertarian municipalism", calling for Kurds to create free, self-governing communities, based on principles of direct democracy, that would then come together across national borders – that it is hoped would over time become increasingly meaningless. In this way, they proposed, the Kurdish struggle could become a model for a wordwide movement towards genuine democracy, co-operative economy, and the gradual dissolution of the bureaucratic nation-state.

Questioning forced vaccination

..Posting this with an earnest appeal to all to think twice before blindly supporting the propaganda for forced vaccinations, especially where it's being done through schools, which is basically a cheap shortcut to "catch'em'all" and a subversion of the country's educational infrastructure while depriving parents of their right to decide what happens to their child's body. Coercion never works, period. Please read on to know the full extent of the disasters that have happened in Chad and Pakistan resulting from this mentality of doing good by force.

And if you do choose to speculate upon this topic, kindly keep in central focus the wellbeing of our young, the basic chemical composition of these vaccines (yes, please try to find that out for yourself first) and the facts on the ground. Lawsuits have been filed. Investigations are being carried out. Several kids who were in perfect health just prior to vaccination have already died or are facing a life of abnormality. Is it fair to justify it all in the name of preventing some naturally occurring diseases that wouldn't have killed/maimed this many people by themselves?

India Holds Bill Gates Accountable For His Vaccine Crimes

India-HPV-Vaccine

As Bill Gates faces a lawsuit for the illegal testing of tribal children in India, it appears that his crimes against humanity have finally caught up with him.
A recent report published by Health Impact News has reported that the Gates Foundation has found itself facing a pending lawsuit, due to an investigation that is being carried out by the Supreme Courts of India.
Health Impact News stated:
"While fraud and corruption are revealed on almost a daily basis now in the vaccine industry, the U.S. mainstream media continues to largely ignore such stories. Outside the U.S., however, the vaccine empires are beginning to crumble, and English versions of the news in mainstream media outlets are available via the Internet.
One such country is India, where the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and their vaccine empire are under fire, including a pending lawsuit currently being investigated by the India Supreme Court." [1]
The Health Impact News article centered largely on a four-page report that was recently published by Economic Times India.
Eager to know more, I investigated their story and discovered that the World Health Organization, the Gates Foundation and two organizations funded by them, PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health) and GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), have found themselves under fire, after a writ of petition originally submitted to the Supreme Court of India, by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and Dr. Rukmini Rao in 2012, was finally heard by the courts.
The petitioners submitting the petition stated:
"BMGF, PATH and WHO were criminally negligent trialling the vaccines on a vulnerable, uneducated and under-informed population school administrators, students and their parents who were not provided informed consent or advised of potential adverse effects or required to be monitored post-vaccination." [2]
 

Young Tribal Girls Tested With HPV Vaccines

The Economic Times India published their report August 2014. They stated that in 2009, tests had been carried out on 16,000 tribal school children in Andhra Pradesh, India, using the human papiloma virus (HPV) vaccine, Gardasil.
According to the report written by KP Narayana Kumar, within a month of receiving the vaccine, many of the children fell ill and by 2010, five of them had died. A further two children were reported to have died in Vadodara, Gujarat, where an estimated 14,000 tribal children were vaccinated with another brand of the HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GlaxoSmitheKline (GSK).
Shockingly, the report stated that many of the consent forms used to vaccinate the girls were signed "illegally," either by the wardens from the hostels where many of the girls resided, or using thumbprints from illiterate parents.
This travesty was not discovered until a team of health activists from the non-government organization SAMA, an organization specializing in women's health, decided to investigate what had been going on.
According to the report, they were shocked to discover that a total of 120 girls had been taken ill, suffering from a variety of symptoms, including "epileptic seizures, severe stomach aches, headaches and mood swings."
The Economic Times stated:
"The Sama report also said there had been cases of early onset of menstruation following the vaccination, heavy bleeding and severe menstrual cramps among many students. The standing committee pulled up the relevant state governments for the shoddy investigation into these deaths.
It said it was disturbed to find that 'all the seven deaths were summarily dismissed as unrelated to vaccinations without in-depth investigations …' the speculative causes were suicides, accidental drowning in well (why not suicide?), malaria, viral infections, subarachnoid hemorrhage (without autopsy) etc."
This information is even more shocking when you discover that the organization funding the study was none other than the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, who declared the project a total success.
Kumar wrote:
"According to the BMGF, the WHO, the International Federation of Gynaecology and Obstetrics, and the Federation of Obstetric and Gynaecological Societies of India have all recommended vaccination 'as a proven and highly effective preventive measure for cervical cancer.' The project used vaccines that are licensed in India and that have been administered safely around the world tens of millions of times, preventing countless cases of cervical cancer illness and death, 'maintains a BMGF spokesperson in an emailed response (see GAVI & PHFI create incentives …'"
He continued:
"BMGF's role in funding the controversial studies, however, has led to many healthcare activists in India voicing their apprehensions. 'BMGF has to take full responsibility because PATH is funded by them. It is also unethical when people championing the cause of vaccines are the same ones who are also investing in vaccine development,' said V Rukmini Rao, one of the activists who filed a writ petition before the Supreme Court in connection with the HPV vaccine studies." [3]
Absolutely, and this is not the first time that these organizations have been caught illegally testing vaccines in developing countries.

Gates Foundation, WHO, PATH, GAVI, UNICEF Behind Chad Vaccine Disaster

In December 2012, in the small village of Gouro, Chad, Africa, situated on the edge of the Sahara Desert, five hundred children were locked into their school, threatened that if they did not agree to being force-vaccinated with a meningitis A vaccine, they would receive no further education.
These children were vaccinated without their parents' knowledge. This vaccine was an unlicensed product still going through the third and fourth phases of testing.
Within hours, one hundred and six children began to suffer from headaches, vomiting, severe uncontrollable convulsions and paralysis. The children's wait for a doctor began. They had to wait one full week for a doctor to arrive while the team of vaccinators proceeded to vaccinate others in the village.
When the doctor finally came, he could do nothing for the children. The team of vaccinators, upon seeing what had happened, fled the village in fear.
The original report written in a small, local newspaper called La Voix, the only newspaper to have published the original story, stated that forty children were finally transferred to a hospital in Faya and later taken by plane to two hospitals in N'Djamena, the capital city of Chad.

After being shuttled around like cattle, many of these sick, weak children were finally dumped back in their village without a diagnosis and each family was given an unconfirmed sum of £1000 by the government. No forms were signed and no documentation was seen. They were informed that their children had not suffered a vaccine injury.
However, if this were true, why would their government award each family £1000 in what has been described as hush money?
The only mainstream news channel to have highlighted the plight of these poor children was a local channel called Tchad, which filmed footage of the then-Prime Minister of Chad visiting the children in hospital.
VacTruth has copies of both reports, along with medical and government documents.
Despite this evidence and VacTruth's detailed and extensive coverage, including highlighting television footage, once again, the vaccine program was hailed a success. To watch videos reporting the story, see the references at the end of this article. [4] [5]
The groups involved with this project were PATH, WHO, UNICEF, and the Gates Foundation. During investigations, it was discovered that the whole project was being run by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
In a press release, the Gates Foundation stated:
"MenAfriVac is a tremendous success story for the global health community. It is the first vaccine developed specifically for Africa, and it proves that global partnerships can develop and deliver high-quality, low-cost vaccines.
Ten years ago, we invested in the Meningitis Vaccine Project,  an innovative model that brought together PATH, the World Health Organization, African health ministers and the Serum Institute of India today, we celebrate the result: a modern vaccine selling for less than US 50 cents per dose with the potential to end Africa's deadly meningitis epidemics.
We believe that vaccines are one of the best buys in global health. In January, Bill and Melinda Gates called on the global community to make this the Decade of Vaccines. There is no better way to launch this decade than with a new vaccine that will improve and save lives." [6]
VacTruth can prove otherwise.

Government Inquiry Holds GAVI Accountable for Multiple Deaths

Despite the fact the Gates Foundation call vaccines "one of the best buys in global health," a government inquiry in Pakistan has found the complete opposite.
In 2011, the Express Tribune published a story stating that:
"ISLAMABAD: A government inquiry has found that polio vaccines for infants funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunisation are causing deaths and disabilities in regional countries including Pakistan.
The startling revelation is part of an inquiry report prepared by the Prime Minister's Inspection Commission (PMIC) on the working of the Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI). The PMIC, headed by Malik Amjad Noon, has recommended that Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani immediately suspend the administration of all types of vaccines funded by the GAVI."
According to the Express Tribune, the main vaccinations in question were the polio vaccine and the 5-in-1 pentavelent vaccine, which were said to be responsible for the deaths and disability of a number of children in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Japan.
The vaccines were funded by the Global Alliance for Vaccination and Immunization (GAVI) an organization financed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Children's Vaccine Program, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Association, the Rockefeller Foundation, the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Bank.
Writing on the official report, made exclusive to the newspaper, the Express Tribune stated:
"The report states, 'The procured vaccines are not tested in laboratories to confirm their efficacy and genuineness. This leaves room for use of spurious and counterfeit vaccines.'" [7] (emphasis added)
If this is true, then once again the Gates Foundation has been linked to mass vaccination initiatives using untested, unsafe vaccinations.

The Gates Foundation and WHO Labeled Unethical by Medical Experts

In 2012, Ramesh Shankar Mumbai, an author writing for the Pharmabiz website, reported that two medical experts from India had accused the Gates Foundation and WHO of being unethical.
In his report, Mumbai stated that Dr. Neetu Vashisht and Dr. Jacob Puliyel of the Department of Pediatrics at St. Stephens Hospital in Delhi, wrote the following information in their report in the April issue of Indian Journal of Medical Ethics.
"It was unethical for WHO and Bill Gates to flog this program when they knew 10 years back that it was never to succeed. Getting poor countries to expend their scarce resources on an impossible dream over the last 10 years was unethical."
Pharmabiz.com reported that Dr. Vashisht and Dr. Puliyel had continued their report by stating:
"Another major ethical issue raised by the campaign is the failure to thoroughly investigate the increase in the incidence of non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP) in areas where many doses of vaccine were used. NPAFP is clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly."
Pharmabiz.com continued:
"The authors noted that while India was polio-free in 2011, in the same year, there were 47500 cases of NPAFP. While data from India's National Polio Surveillance Project showed NPAFP rate increased in proportion to the number of polio vaccine doses received, independent studies showed that children identified with NPAFP 'were at more than twice the risk of dying than those with wild polio infection.'" [8]
The corruption and deceit by these organizations does not stop there.

The Gates Foundation Blamed for 10,000 Vaccine-Related Deaths

In 2013, yet another report named the Gates Foundation and GAVI as being responsible for multiple deaths using untested vaccinations on children from the developing world.
The report, published on the website Occupy Corporatism and written by Susanne Posel stated:
"It was found out through an investigation, that GAVI was using an untested vaccine; giving this dangerous vaccine to Pakistani children shows the lack of empathy associated with these organizations.
GAVI was blamed for the deaths of 10,000 children in Pakistan when they came in and administered polio vaccines that resulted in casualties." [9]
As we know, GAVI is heavily funded by the Gates Foundation. [10]
So, what was the name of the organization that investigated GAVI and found them using untested polio vaccinations in Pakistan?
According to the Express Tribune article, which I referred to earlier in this article, it was none other than the Indian government, who, upon discovering the shocking truth, recommended the immediate suspension of the administration of all types of vaccines funded by GAVI. [7]
In a recent radio show hosted by Sallie O. Elkordy, Susanne Posel gave her frank and honest views on the whole sorry mess that we find ourselves in today.

Conclusion

It is difficult to believe that, despite the mounting evidence outlining the many crimes against humanity that have been committed by the Gates Foundation, GAVI, UNICEF and PATH, Bill Gates is portrayed as a hero among many.
However, according to the definition of hero in the Oxford Dictionary, the word hero means:
"A person, typically a man, who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities." [12]
The dictionary I used said nothing about vaccinating innocent, vulnerable children with untested and unsafe vaccinations, causing them to suffer agonizing, untimely deaths.
