One Of The World’s Last Remaining Globe-Makers That Use The Ancient Art Of Making Globes By Hand

In the modern age, with the advent of GPS in addition to the abundance of mass-produced globes and maps, the art of globe making has fallen by the wayside. Only two workshops in the world still make handcrafted globes; one of them is us….. Bellerby & Co. Globemakers, a studio based in Stoke Newington, London.

Founded by Peter Bellerby in 2008, the artisan studio was born when Bellerby struggled to find a quality globe for his father’s 80th birthday present. Faced with a choice between a cheaply made modern globes or a fragile, expensive antique model, Bellerby decided to spend a few months and a few thousand pounds making his own, instead. The process turned out to be more complicated, costly, and time-intensive than he thought, eventually leading to the creation of his own globe-making studio.

Our largest globe… the 127cm Churchill

What does it take to be a globemaker? Incredible amount of patience and the ability to re-train your body

You have to re-train your body in a almost tai-chi manner to do everything with great control and precision.

MSM Focuses on the Subway Man, They are Silent on the Epidemic of Cops Raping Children

msm-jared-fogle-epidemic-police-child-sexual-assault

Jared Fogle made an enviable living as a Subway pitchman, but he may regret that he didn’t choose a law enforcement career. Fogle’s career provided him with wealth, fame, and connections that allowed him to indulge an appetite for sexual contact with minors. However, because he is not a law enforcement officer he does not enjoy the same “Blue Privilege” that has protected many cops who committed similar offenses from lengthy prison terms, draconian fines, and a life term as a registered sex offender.

Roughly a month after federal investigators raided his home in Indiana, Fogle has reportedly pleaded guilty to a single count of receipt of child porn and distribution of child porn, and one count of interstate travel to engage in illicit sexual contact with a minor. Under the reported terms of his plea agreement, Fogle faces a term of five to 12 years in prison, and must pay $100,000 in restitution to 14 identified victims.

Fogle was targeted by police following the April arrest of his close friend Russell C. Taylor, who operated a children’s charity in Indianapolis. Taylor allegedly shared sexually explicit images of children – some of them secretly recorded in his home, others commercially produced. Taylor, who is in federal custody, has not yet been indicted.

Indianapolis police chief Richard Hite describes Fogle as “a celebrity who had access, power, and resources to do whatever he wanted. He used that to … take advantage of children,” and said that the high-profile arrest and indictment were intended to “send a message” to sex predators: “You may hide in the confines of your home, on the Internet, your laptop, and your tablet. We will find you. We’re looking, we’re paying attention, we will find you.”

Owing to the Panopticon-like properties of online media, potential sexual predators are relatively easy to find. What is done to them once their found, however, often depends on their status in society – and on many occasions those commissioned to enforce laws against sex offenses are treated quite leniently when caught violating them.

In just the last few weeks, there have been 11 police officers caught with child porn or caught raping children. It is indeed an epidemic.

Surgeon who wrote of becoming killer is denied bail reduction

Related

CHRISTOPHER DUNTSCH

Long before he faced lawsuits and criminal charges, a North Texas neurosurgeon emailed one of his employees.

“I am ready to leave the love and kindness and goodness and patience that I mix with everything else that I am and become a cold blooded killer,” Christopher Duntsch wrote.

To authorities, the chilling Dec. 11, 2011, email points to Duntsch’s mind-set in the months before he “intentionally, knowingly and recklessly” botched spinal surgeries, severely injuring four people and killing one woman, Floella Brown, who died in July 2012.

The email was among new evidence Dallas County prosecutors presented against Duntsch at a hearing Friday in which Criminal District Judge Carter Thompson refused to reduce Duntsch’s $600,000 bail.

“I am very well-pleased that he will remain in jail and that justice will eventually be served for the crimes that he has committed,” said Philip Mayfield, 45, who awoke paralyzed from the neck down in April 2013 after Duntsch performed surgery on his spine.

Duntsch, 44, was arrested July 21 on five counts of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury and a count of injuring an elderly person. He performed those procedures at Dallas Medical Center, South Hampton Community Hospital and University General Hospital.

Dallas police said in a search warrant affidavit that he is also under investigation in the botching of at least 10 other patients’ surgeries in Plano and Dallas that occurred from November 2011 through June 2013. Duntsch “knowingly takes actions that place the patients’ lives at risk,” police said, such as causing extreme blood loss by cutting a major vein and then not taking proper steps to correct it.

Smithsonian Raises $700,000 on Kickstarter to Save Neil Armstrong’s Spacesuit

How much is Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit worth?

If crowdsourcing is a good measure, more than $700,000.

More than 9,000 people have donated that much to a Kickstarter campaign by the Smithsonian Institution to “Reboot the Suit” and conserve the spacesuit worn by Neil Armstrong during the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, which put humans on the moon for the first time. Smithsonian wants to properly preserve the suit, which has been kept in climate-controlled storage for the past nine years, “down to the particles of lunar dust that cling to its surface.”

The Internet campaign, a first for Smithsonian, launched July 20, and met its fundraising goal of $500,000 in just five days. Smithsonian tacked on an additional goal of $200,000 to conserve the suit worn by Alan Shepard, the first American in space during the Mercury flight in 1961. Armstrong’s suit will go on display at the National Air and Space Museum in 2019, the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, and both suits will be part of a new exhibit called “Destination Moon” in 2020. The campaign closes Wednesday morning.

Climate philanthropist George Soros invests millions in coal

Billionaire has previously funded renewable energy and low-carbon initiatives and has called coal a ‘lethal bullet’ for climate change

Billionaire climate philanthropist George Soros invested more than $2m (£1.3m) in struggling coal giants Peabody Energy and Arch Coal in recent months, despite having once called the fuel “lethal” to the climate.

Filings with the Securities and Exchange commission show that between April and June this year Soros Fund Management (SFM) bought more than 1m shares in Peabody ($2.25m), the world’s largest private coal company, and 500,000 shares in Arch ($188,000).

The firm, which Soros chairs, bought the large stakes for bargain prices. Peabody and Arch are giants of the US coal sector but have suffered massive declines in recent years, losing more than 98% of their value. SFM made a similar move in 2014 by investing $234.4m in coal and gas company Consol. Those shares were sold off after a few months as gas prices continued to fall.

The Hungarian trading titan is the 29th richest person on earth; according to Forbes he is worth $24.2bn. In 2009, after being convinced by Al Gore of the urgency of the climate challenge, he pledged to spend $1bn of his own money on renewable energy and funded the Climate Policy Initiative (CPI) thinktank.

At the time, Soros said: “There is no magic bullet for climate change, but there is a lethal bullet: coal.” A report produced by CPI in June 2014 concluded that transitioning away from coal represented a cost-effective way to reduce emissions. CPI declined to comment on their benefactor’s apparent inconsistency.

Bernie Sanders receives crucial Deez Nuts endorsement

Presidential candidate and fake person Deez Nuts is polling at 9% in North Carolina, which means his political views and endorsements are actually more relevant than any of the people polling behind him. People such as Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker. As such, we are obligated to take him seriously. It is with this in mind that we report that not at all insignificant development that he has endorsed Bernie Sanders as the Democratic nominee and John Kasich as the Republican nominee.

NORAD plans exercise to test spotting gyrocopters

(AP) — The North American Aerospace Defense Command is planning a training exercise over the Washington area intended to test its ability to spot gyrocopters and ultralight aircraft.

Sunday’s exercise comes about four months after a Florida man piloted a gyrocopter through restricted airspace to land on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Douglas Hughes has said his flight was intended to call attention to the influence of big money in politics. He now faces a range of charges.

NORAD says its exercise is based on that incident but will involve four aircraft. NORAD says it won’t be attempting to intercept the aircraft Sunday but that the exercise will test its ability to identify and track low altitude, slow speed aircraft. The flights are scheduled during two separate intervals between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

Stem-Cell Dental Implants Grow New Teeth in Your Mouth

Recently, the Journal of Dental Research published a study according to which a new tissue regeneration technique may help in regrowing pearly white teeth.

Dr Jeremy Mao, the Edward V. Zegarellu Professor of Dental Medicine at Columbia University Medical Center, explains that a three-dimensional scaffold with growth factor has the potential to regenerate and regrow anatomically correct teeth within just nine weeks after the implantation.

The procedure was developed in the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Laboratory at the university. In the process, the body’s own stem cells go toward the scaffold, which consists of completely natural materials. Once the scaffold is colonized with stem cells, the tooth starts growing in the socket, and later merges with the surrounding tissue.

Pop-Tarts beer exists because we don’t deserve to live on this plane

When Wheaties announced they were going into the brewing business, that was cool, because all they were doing was making a wheat beer and slapping the name Wheaties on it. It made sense. This, however? This is insanity. Pop-Tarts beer has no earthly reason to exist other than to prove that there truly is no god, and mankind will not rest until the laws of nature are nothing but a distant long forgotten concept.

The beer comes from 21st Amendment, a San Francisco based brewery that hates you. It’s being unveiled at the opening on their newest factory, which was once owned by Kellogg, and was used to manufacture Frosted Flakes and (obviously) Pop-Tarts

Windows 10 Can Disable Pirated Software And Illegal Hardware Remotely

Updated EULA terms let Microsoft invade your Windows 10 computer in search of counterfeit software.

Microsoft’s updated End User Licence Agreement terms and conditions let it disable any counterfeit software or hardware and, if you’re running a Windows 10 computer, you’ve just agreed to them.

Section 7b – or “Updates to the Services or Software, and Changes to These Terms” – of Microsoft’s Services EULA stipulates that it “may automatically check your version of the software and download software update or configuration changes, including those that prevent you from accessing the Services, playing counterfeit games, or using unauthorised hardware peripheral devices.”

This means that, if you use Windows 10, a Windows phone, or any of Microsoft’s other services, Redmond can disable any games you’ve pirated or devices you’ve unlawfully hacked.

While it’s incredibly clear what Microsoft means by “counterfeit games”, the wording “unauthorised hardware peripheral devices” is a little hazy. Does this mean Microsoft can now block uncertified PC or illegally-modified Xbox One and Xbox 360 controllers? Furthermore, Microsoft’s EULA doesn’t state if it will also disable other counterfeit software, such as cracked versions of Office or Adobe Photoshop, or if it only cares about pirated games.

I’ve reached out to Microsoft for a comment about these unanswered questions and will update you when more information becomes available.

‘Black Lives Matter’ Organization Being Run by White Guy Pretending to be Black

hqdefault-1

Another race faker…

Remember last month when a white woman named Rachel Dolezal had been caught after lying about being black for 10 years and had to resign as head of a Calif. NAACP chapter? Well, now we have a white guy who have been pretending to be black exposed as the main organizer behind the so-called “black lives matter” organization!

Just as with the Dolezal case, it turns out that we have a race faker. In this case, one of the main organizers of the “black lives matter” movement is a fellow named Shaun King. This man has for years been posing as a black man–or at least half black and mixed race. He even claimed that as a teen he was attacked in a “racist” incident. Well, it turns out that King is not black. He is white and always has been even though for years he’s pretended to be black.

An investigative blogger has accused Shaun King, a key figure in the Black Lives Matter movement, of misleading media icon Oprah Winfrey by pretending to be biracial in order to qualify for an “Oprah scholarship” to historically black Morehouse College. The blogger says King is white and has been lying about his ethnicity for years.

King is a high-profile campaigner against “police brutality” and “justice correspondent” for the liberal Daily Kos website who told Rebel magazine in 2012 that he was biracial, with the magazine reporting that he is the “son of a Caucasian mother and an African-American father.” He has also described himself as “mixed with a black family” on Twitter.

(Only) “Black Lives Matter”

revisedhistory

by Al Benson Jr.

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that with the emerging “Black Lives Matter” Movement the only lives that matter to those people are black lives. All the rest are simply beneath mention because they are not black.

There is even a Black Lives Matter webpage out there and they are not hesitant in the least to tell you what they stand for, which is the typical leftist line. Are you surprised? Their website states, in part: “Black Lives Matter affirms the lives of Black queer and trans folks, disabled blacks, black undocumented folks, folks with records, women and all black lives along the gender spectrum. It centers those that have been marginalized within black liberation movements.  It is a tactic to (re)build the Black Liberation movement.” You have to give those people credit–they tell you right up front where they are at and…

“Independent” GMO Researcher Forced To Admit $25K Grant From Monsanto

In January of 2015, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Oakland organization U.S. Right to Know requested email records between academics, scientists, and representatives of Big Agriculture.

The FOIA requests were sent to 14 scientists at four public universities, requesting information on communications and email records.

The FOIA findings included communications of well-known, staunch proponents of GM crops like Kevin Folta, a professor and chairman of the Horticultural Sciences Department at the University of Gainesville, who received a $25,000 grant from Monsanto. The emails reveal the funds could “be used at [his] discretion in support of [his] research and outreach projects”.

About 4,600 pages of emails, among other records, were obtained from Folta.

According to the communications, the ties between allegedly objective scientists and Big Agriculture run deep. According to Nature Magazine,

“The documents show that Monsanto paid for Folta’s travel to speak to US students, farmers, politicians and the media. Other industry contacts occasionally sent him suggested responses to common questions about GM organisms.”

While it’s not uncommon for scientists to receive corporate funding through grants, these revelations are troublesome because Folta is regularly sold to the public as an “independent” authority on GMOs. In fact, the biotech industry-funded site, GMOanswers.com — which seeks to dispel myths about the dangers of GM foods and pesticides — has still not disclosed Folta’s financial ties to Monsanto.
