In 2016, an estimated 246,660 new cases of invasive breast cancer, 61,000 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer, and 40,450 breast cancer deaths are expected to be recorded in the United States alone. With the rising rates of breast cancer, mammography has gained popularity globally as the most effective screening technique to detect the most common cancer among women.
A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didn’t perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed.
Unaffected by elections. Unaltered by populist movements. Beyond the reach of the law. Say hello to America’s shadow government.
A detailed report released in September 2016 by the Chicago Reader unveiled a secret civil asset forfeiture fund that amounted to nearly $50 million in seized cash which the Chicago Police Department was attempting to keep for themselves. The detailed analysis shows that CPD officials were attempting to pocket 65% of the cash and assets they brought in through civil asset forfeiture. This is policing for profit, and it is no different than highway robbery.
Obamacare premiums are set to skyrocket an average of 22% for the benchmark silver plan in 2017, according to a government report released Monday.
In the next 9 years, the US Army will have more combat robots than humans, according to John Bassett, a former UK intelligence officer. Basset, who worked for 20 years at the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), told attendees at a counter-terrorism meeting in London that the US is attempting to “stay ahead of the curve” by employing thousands of robot soldiers over the next few years.
We tend to think of the suburbs as middle class utopias. When people think of the American Dream they usually draw up a picture of a home with a picket white fence in the suburb. Poverty is usually left to inner cities and crammed multi-family dwellings. So it might come as a surprise that over the last decade the fastest growing segment of poverty occurred in the suburbs. It occurred in this market as people were driven out of city centers where prices surged and people were driven further outside of the city. In the past, this push out was usually done by choice for quality of life and family purposes. This time, it has happened by economic force and poverty in the suburbs is exploding. This goes hand in hand with the shrinking middle class.
A newly released report, published in the The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology has revealed that exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals is attributed to $340 billion in health costs each year in the United States.
While Australia whines about the lack of democracy and freedom in places like Syria, it is doing everything in its power to ensure that nothing resembling either of those things is allowed within its own borders. Apparently having found itself in a race with France, Germany, the UK and the United States, for which country can eliminate personal liberties, freedom of speech – or even thought – while launching wars all across the world on the basis of protecting those things, Australia is proving itself to be a capable competitor. The examples of Australia’s thought control policies are legion, but the most recent is surrounding the vaccination hysteria in the ability of free adults to choose whether or not they accept toxic chemicals (or life-saving medicines with no side effects) into their bodies.
Parasitic worms are a nasty image; they aptly describe what a Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) does to their victims. Like any parasite, they do not want to totally destroy their host (you), because without you (and people like you), the NPD would totally fall apart. Like most parasites, NPD’s have inborn abilities to find and attach to a host without the host realizing that they have been infested. By the time the host recognizes that there is something terribly wrong, the parasite has firmly hooked in to the victim, making escape very difficult at least.
Official reality says a paradise is waiting for us if we dispense with our individuality. Be mainstream. Go along with the mainstream tide. Adopt the position of the mainstream. If you waver, just watch more network news.
Atrazine, a potent hormone disruptor linked to sex-changes in animals and powerful effects on humans in extremely low doses has been found in one in 6 Americans drinking water. According to research, exposure to atrazine in utero can cause genital deformities in young boys, including the development of a micropenis, medically known as microphallus. The chemical, banned in Europe for its harmful qualities, is known to disrupt endocrine function in human beings, which can lead to a slew of disastrous health disorders.
Imagine a world where an authoritarian government monitors everything you do, amasses huge amounts of data on almost every interaction you make, and awards you a single score that measures how “trustworthy” you are.
Donald Trump has become most well known for his anti-immigration stance during his current election campaign. However, it seems that he did not always espouse these same beliefs. Trump is a person who has done business internationally, across borders, and just three years ago he wrote an opinion piece for CNN where he explicitly called for open borders.
In a free and democratic society we have four pillars, branches or what has also been termed estates. One of course is the judiciary, another is the legislative branch, yet another is the executive branch (president, prime minister or both in some cases) and finally we have the news media. The news media, and the journalists working in that field, often called the fourth estate, are of course not elected as the populace elects their political leaders or representatives. They are private actors in the society whose product, the news, is consumed and supported by the general public. But, a free press, albeit a non governmental entity or industry, is intended to act as a form of check and balance upon the others. That is why historically the general public usually has had a degree of trust in what they read or hear from journalists. An implied level of ethical reporting. A proverbial guard dog if you will, keeping an eye on what is going on and speaking truth to power when and where necessary. At least that is the theory and how it is suppose to work.
According to a report from the Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX), a fleet of android robots will police the streets of Dubai as early as 2017. Videos from Dubai’s annual computer and electronic trade show featured new prototypes of the robot shaking hands, saluting, and brandishing a touchscreen interface by which people can report crimes or pay traffic fines. It is another indicator that we are fast approaching an age of automatic policing.
There is no Constitutional requirement that we vote. If there’s one thing we’ve learned so far from election 2016 it’s that the American people do not understand their government. The perception is that we have a democracy, and that in this democracy we the people have vested power in our government which we exercise through the act of voting. ‘Throw the bastards out,’ has long since been the war cry of the impotent democrat, yet we no longer even have a democracy to cling to, and although most people choose to ignore it, this fact of life has been visible for decades.
Millennials are a critical group in terms of where the economy goes in the next few years. The economy largely relies on younger people to spend and purchase consumption items.
When Hillary Clinton spoke in Harlem in February, she barely used the words “urban” or “cities,” but she laid out one of the most ambitious urban agendas of any modern presidential nominee.
It’s no secret that the US government continues to grow larger, more oppressive, and more authoritarian with each passing year. If one were to attempt to write down all of the ways the government impedes liberty and stomps all over the people it is supposed to serve, it would take days…perhaps weeks…to accomplish. So, this list is by no means exhaustive, but here are 8 ways the control-freak US government is sabotaging freedom and making life more difficult for citizens.
