Things have gotten steadily worse for Democrats after Donald Trump’s election to the Presidency of the United States. Scores of celebrities are freaking out across social media, Hillary supporters are holding “Cry Ins” to help each other cope, visits to Canada’s immigration website have skyrocketed, and coping videos are starting to make the rounds online.While many shocked Clinton supporters have found solidarity with thousands of others by protesting and rioting in the streets, some, like movie star Robert DeNiro, have fallen into a depressive state.And according to The Hill, those overwhelming feelings of depression have led to suicidal thoughts in many. So much so that suicide hotlines across the country are struggling to keep up: Phones have been ringing off the hook at suicide hotlines since Donald Trump was named president-elect Tuesday. According to multiple reports, many of those calling or texting into hotlines are members of the LGBTQ community, minorities and victims of sexual assault who are worried about Trump’s victory. The Suicide Prevention Lifeline told “The Washington Post” it is seeing calls “unmatched in the hotline’s history,” with a response unlike that in 2008 or 2012.

Well here is part of the reason. America’s have wisened up and NO LONGER TRUST the Globalist Propaganda. They know it’s all baloney.Jennifer Harper of The Washington Times ReportsA major pollster has some stark news: “Americans’ trust and confidence in the mass media ‘to report the news fully, accurately and fairly’ has dropped to its lowest level in Gallup polling history, with 32 percent saying they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the media. This is down eight percentage points from last year,” writes Art Swift, an analyst for the Gallup poll, which first asked the nation to weigh in on the press in 1972.“Over the history of the entire trend, Americans’ trust and confidence hit its highest point in 1976, at 72 percent, in the wake of widely lauded examples of investigative journalism regarding Vietnam and the Watergate scandal,” Mr. Swift said.
By Simon OxenhamIsy Suttie has felt “head squeezing” since she was young. The comedian, best known for playing Dobbie in the British sitcom Peep Show, is one of many people who experience autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) – a tingly feeling often elicited by certain videos or particular mundane interactions. Growing up, Suttie says she had always assumed everyone felt it too.Not everyone feels it, but Suttie is by no means alone. On Reddit, a community of more than 100,000 members share videos designed to elicit the pleasurable sensation. The videos, often described as “whisper porn”, typically consist of people role-playing routine tasks, whispering softly into a microphone or making noises by crinkling objects such as crisp packets.
The most popular ASMR YouTuber, “Gentle Whispering”, has over 250 million views. To most of us, the videos might seem strange or boring, but the clips frequently garner hundreds of thousands of views.These videos often mimic real-life situations that provoke ASMR in susceptible people. Suttie says her strongest real-world triggers occur during innocuous interactions with strangers, like talking about the weather – “it’s almost as if the more superficial the subject the better,” Suttie says.She feels the sensation particularly strongly when someone brushes past her. For Suttie, the feelings are so powerful that she often feels floored by them, and they even overcome pain and emotional distress. During a trip to the dentist, she still experiences the pleasurable tingles when the assistant brushes past her, she says.
It was the fault of the Russians.No wait, it was the fault of white trash, uneducated America.No wait, the white male is to blame.No…it was the fault of the patriarchy.No wait, it was Facebook fault.Hillary Clinton’s loss is everyone else’s fault except for Hillary Clinton and her criminal past, and present.This is liberal logic in overdrive. SJW-snowflakes are never to blame, it is always the fault of someone else, or something else. Accountability and responsibility are words not to be found in a neo-liberal progressive dictionary.Liberal media is turning on Facebook, publishing a flurry of posts that claim, despite Facebook’s best efforts to filter out “false news”, some “false news” still managed to get through onto people’s feed…and this lost the election for crooked Hillary.
Researchers find a loophole found in a fundamental law of physics that may lead to infinite powerPhysicists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory have formulated a mathematical theorem, which shows that the Second Law of Thermodynamics may have a loophole in it.In modern physics, the laws of thermodynamics are some of the most important principles because they define how three fundamental physical quantities – temperature, energy, and entropy (disorder) – behave under different kinds of circumstances. According to the Second Law of
Thermodynamics, entropy in the universe must always increase.According to their research paper published in Scientific Reports, the researchers have developed a theoretical model where the Second Law is violated on a molecular level. Technically, Second Law is backed by the H-theorem. According to H-theorem, it explains how if you open a door between two rooms – one hot and one cold – both rooms’ temperature would eventually reach equilibrium making them both lukewarm; and the hot room will never end up hotter. The H-theorem depends upon a statistical interpretation of the way molecules move around.
It sounds like a bad joke: A Liverpool man felled by his own dirty bagpipes. But this is no Monty Python skit. After seven years spent suffering from a dry cough and worsening breathlessness, the 61-year-old musician died of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP), dubbed “bagpipe lung.” The rare condition is caused by an allergic reaction to mold, fungus, dust, or other airborne substances that causes lung tissue and blood vessels to become inflamed, making breathing increasingly difficult, reports the Los Angeles Times.Doctors initially suspected that allergies were to blame for the bagpiper’s illness but when the man didn’t respond to treatment, they looked for other causes. The man’s symptoms eased during a three-month stay in Australia, and he was able to walk six miles along the beach.He had left his bagpipes at home; when he resumed playing back home, his illness came back. At the end of his life in 2014, the man could barely catch his breath after about 20 yards, the report found.
In 2003, the wife of a 55-year-old Vietnamese carpenter named Le Van died. Heartbroken, he dug up her grave, cast her body in clay and slept next to “her” for five years.The story is unsettling, but there’s also something universal about his struggle to let go. Many grieving people feel an emotional connection to things that represent dead loved ones, such as headstones, urns and shrines, according to grief counselors.In the future, people may take that phenomenon to stunning new heights: Artificial intelligence experts predict that humans will replace dead relatives with synthetic robot clones, complete with a digital copy of that person’s brain.“It’s like when people stuff a pet cat or dog. We don’t stuff humans but this is a way of ‘stuffing’ their information, their personality and mannerisms,” said Bruce Duncan, managing director of Terasem Movement, a research foundation that aims to “transfer human consciousness to computers and robots.”The firm has already created thousands of highly detailed “mind clones” to log the memories, values and attitudes of specific people. Using the data, scientists created one of the world’s most socially advanced robots, a replica of Terasem Movement founder Martine Rothblatt’s wife, called Bina48, which sells for roughly $150,000.
Researchers have warned it is already too late to stop killer robots – and say banning them would be little more than a temporary solution.University at Buffalo researchers claim ‘society is entering into a situation where systems like these have and will become possible.’Elon Musk and Professor Stephen Hawking have both warned that artificial intelligence could develop a will of its own that is in conflict with that of humanity, and could herald dangers like powerful autonomous weapons.
As he prepares to take office, President-Elect Donald Trump has said that he would leave in tact some aspects of Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act.Trump made known his positions in an interview with the Wall Street Journal published on Friday. Although Trump has repeatedly pledged to repeal and replace “Obamacare” once he enters office, he told the WSJ that he would consider maintaining at least two provisions of Obama’s signature legislation after Obama appealed to him to rethink his stance during a Thursday meeting at the White House.Trump said he’s in favor of maintaining the prohibition against insurers denying patients health coverage based on pre-existing conditions, as well as an arrangement that would permit young adults to stay on their parents’ policies for more time. “I like those very much,” Trump said.
First ever Hindu was elected to the US House of Representatives. She will take the oath of office over the Bhagavad Gita. During election, Hawaii elected Japan-born Mazie Hirono to be the first ever Asian-American woman elected to the Senate. Hawaii also elected Democrat Tulsi Gabbard as the first ever practicing Hindu to the US House of Representatives. Because of this, Fox News have declare Hawaii a “disaster zone”. Gabbard is the daughter of two conservative Hawaii politicians. She first ran, and was elected into office at the age of 21. After her first term, she served on a 12 month tour of duty with Hawaii’s National Guard, and then became the first woman in history of the Accelerated Officer Candidate School at the Alabama Military Academy to be designated a “distinguished honor graduate”. She was then deployed to Baghdad as a medical operations specialist in 2004, and she was deployed to Kuwait in 2008.
The Browns are 0-10 and with games against the Steelers (twice), Giants, Bengals, Bills, and Chargers remaining, an 0-16 season isn’t out of the question. If that happens, the Browns will enter 2017 with Johnny Manziel listed as the team’s most recent quarterback to win a game.But not every Browns fan hates what’s happening to the team. Maybe it’s the promise of the top draft pick or maybe it’s the idea of finally making history (albeit, bad history), but some fans are actually embracing the possibility of going winless. They’re even planning a parade in Cleveland.First, there’s this: a Facebook event with more than 2,000 folks who RSVP’d as of Friday afternoon.
Don’t worry, you’re not really dead, Facebook just thinks you are. Or at least the social network thought you were dead for a brief period on Friday. It turns out it was just a bug, and everyone who was previously alive is alive once more. Huzzah!Thanks to what Facebook is describing as a “terrible error”, millions of people were reliably informed they had died. This occurred yesterday (Friday, November 11), when Facebook users who were very much alive and well had the following message added to the top of their profile: “We hope people who love [name] will find comfort in the things others share to remember and celebrate [his/her] life.”This is the banner that normally sits atop the Facebook profiles of people who have passed away. It’s an option for relatives who choose to memorialize a loved one’s account rather than delete it. Memorialized accounts remain online in perpetuity for family and friends to visit.
This profiling work was done under the auspices of MK ULTRA; it was given the financial designation of “Subproject 102″. The declassified MK ULTRA files give these documents reference number (MORI ID#) 17358, I’ve provided photographs of all subproject documentation on this page. (So you don’t have to take my word for their existence!)“Inner city youths of the age 14-17″ will strike anyone who’s lived in a ‘depressed’ American urban neighborhood as a very interesting demographic to target, because this is the ‘riot demographic’. If you’re looking for a group of people who are easy to ignite, this is it. 14-17 year olds are the indiscriminate crime demographic: misguided kids who are bored, have bad attitudes and often embrace a culture of criminality. These are the kids who will go around trashing cars, breaking windows or attacking weak-looking people just because they can. They’re the kids who’ll suddenly decide to rush old folks, as we saw in Milwaukee last year– but this pattern is repeated all over the USA, all the time.There is crime amongst other age groups too, but 20-somethings and older are less likely to engage in indiscriminate crime– they shoot other criminals over drug disputes and the like. (In fact, neighborhoods where drugs are sold are often safer because the dealers keep the hooligans in check in order to avoid police attention.)For more examples of the “riot demographic” at work, consider the youths rioting in London; or the youths rioting in Paris; and the 1994 Los Angeles riots. The same pattern olds true for urban rioting during the 1960s.The American race riots of the 1960s have a lot in common with riots that are happening across the Western world today– the sequence of events is strikingly similar: a cop shoots a youth under strained circumstances; rioting ‘spontaneously’ starts and destroys the local economy; the neighborhood ends up being on lock-down for the next 40, 50, 60 years. It’s a great way of spreading the police state and inciting distrust between races. This distrust is politically useful for demagogues and FBI informants like Rev. Al Sharpton.Of course, I’m not saying all riots are caused by 14-17 year old ‘inner city’ males, nor am I saying that once a riot starts only 14-17 year olds maintain the riot– plenty of older people get in on the action. I’m saying that it’s relatively easy to start these young lads rioting and the CIA was all over them in the early 1960s.

A bright speck of climate news was quickly overshadowed by the presidential election this week—America’s children have officially won the right to sue their government over global warming.Yesterday, a lawsuit filed by 21 youth plaintiffs was ruled valid by US District Judge Ann Aiken in Eugene, Oregon. A group of citizens, whose ages range from nine to 20, charged President Obama, the fossil fuel industry, and other federal agencies with violating their constitutional rights by declining to take action against climate change.“Federal courts too often have been cautious and overly deferential in the arena of environmental law, and the world has suffered for it,” wrote Judge Aiken in her ruling.Along with renowned climate scientist James Hansen, who in 1988 pleaded with Congress to consider the harmful effects of greenhouse gas emissions, the youth group was applauded by activists who saw their lawsuit as a much-needed beacon of hope for future generations. In it, the plaintiffs accused the US government and energy trade industries of endangering their rights to life, liberty, property, and to vital public trust resources.
Free speech is one of the most treasured rights in Western democracy. However, ethicists are constantly making exceptions for points of view which they regards as particularly destructive and evil. In the latest issue of the Nordic Journal of Applied Ethics, Trygve Lavik, a philosopher at the University of Bergen, argues that climate change denial is a crime and that it should be made illegal. He does not specify what penal sanctions should be imposed. Climate denialism is not beneficial because its main goal is to produce doubt, and not truth. Climate denialism is not sincerely meant, which is a necessary condition for Mill to accept utterances. Climate denialists bring harm, by blocking necessary action on climate change. Primarily they harm future generations and people in developing countries.Lavik attempts to distinguish between scepticism and denialism. Relying upon renowned sceptic Michael Shermer, he says that “denialism is typically driven by ideology and religious belief”. A refusal to accept the overwhelming preponderance of evidence is insincere if it masquerades as scepticism. It is plainly and simply denialism.
The Senate voted Tuesday to require women to register for the draft, an action with little practical impact anytime soon — the U.S. has relied on an all-volunteer military force for decades — but one that reflects a growing consensus that women are just as capable of serving and leading in the military as men.The provision was tucked into the 2017 National Defense Authorization Act, which passed 85-13. It’s weird that the issue is being debated since the draft, also known as Selective Service, hasn’t been in use since 1973. What’s also surprising is that lawmakers who rarely agree with each other on anything are all for requiring women between the ages of 18 and 25 to sign up to serve their country.“I support it,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who served in the Air Force for years, told HuffPost last month. “I don’t think you want to take half your population off the sidelines in case of a national emergency.”An unabashed war hawk, Graham said the goal should be to rewrite the draft so it supplements the nation’s all-volunteer force.
The food chain is making a name for itself as a health-focused supermarket in recent times. With low prices AND a focus on health, Aldi is gaining a reputation as the food conscious shoppers go-to store. The pesticides being removed are: Thiamethoxam Chlorpyrifos Clothianidin Cypermethrin Deltamethrin Fipronil Imidacloprid SulfoxaflorAldi has made a name for itself in recent years for being strict about removing certain pesticides and chemicals from its products, and they are going even further in their quest for quality. They are expanding their organic food brands, removing some artificial ingredients from products and adding more gluten-free items. They have removed certified synthetic colors, partially hydrogenated oils, and MSG from their private-label products (which make up 90% of sales). They have expanded their sales of fresh and organic meat and produce, including the “Never Any!” brand of meats that contain no added antibiotics, hormones, animal by-products or other additives. The chain will also expand the SimplyNature line (which is free of more than 125 artificial ingredients) and their gluten-free liveGfree brand. Their milk was free of artificial growth hormones, but now its yogurt, sour cream, cottage cheese, and other dairy products will be as well. They have begun to offer more high-end foods like artisan cheeses, smoked salmon, quinoa, and coconut oil.There are currently 1,500 Aldi stores in the U.S and the plan to open 500 more by 2018. With such a strong focus on health, they are set to become the leader in health supermarkets.
It was a powerful piece of technology created for an important customer. The Medusa system, named after the mythical Greek monster with snakes instead of hair, had one main purpose: to vacuum up vast quantities of internet data at an astonishing speed.The technology was designed by Endace, a little-known New Zealand company. And the important customer was the British electronic eavesdropping agency, Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ.Dozens of internal documents and emails from Endace, obtained by The Intercept and reported in cooperation with Television New Zealand, reveal the firm’s key role helping governments across the world harvest vast amounts of information on people’s private emails, online chats, social media conversations, and internet browsing histories.The leaked files, which were provided by a source through SecureDrop, show that Endace listed a Moroccan security agency implicated in torture as one of its customers. They also indicate that the company sold its surveillance gear to more than half a dozen other government agencies, including in the United States, Israel, Denmark, Australia, Canada, Spain, and India.Some of Endace’s largest sales in recent years, however, were to the United Kingdom’s GCHQ, which purchased a variety of “data acquisition” systems and “probes” that it used to covertly monitor internet traffic.
This summer, many beachgoers around the US endured an increasingly icky phenomenon: waters teeming with jellyfish. In April, thousands of jellyfish invaded Hallandale Beach in South Florida, Miami, while officials continued to discourage visits to certain beaches in the US with expected jellyfish invasions.Global jellyfish populations have been steadily growing in recent years, driven by rising ocean temperatures, pollution and overfishing. In her book, Stung!: On Jellyfish Blooms and the Future of the Oceans, scientist Lisa-Ann Gershwin argues the increased acidity in oceans have made it ideal for jellyfish to thrive. Aside from being a menace to beachgoers, jellyfish can also harm underwater infrastructure, clogging the cooling systems of nuclear power plants. According to the National Science Foundation, colonies of jellyfish in the Gulf of Mexico can be 100 miles long, with more jellyfish than water at their densest.
If you walk inside Tykables, a shop in a suburb of Chicago, you could be forgiven for momentarily thinking you’ve entered a store for newborns and their parents.You might notice the crib against a wall, the rocking horse and high chair in the middle of the room, or the “diaper tree” stacked 6-feet-tall.But as you take a closer look, you’ll see that each item is strangely adult-size or that the store’s owner has traded slacks and a button-up for a pink T-shirt and a puffy white diaper.Adult Baby Diaper Lovers (or ABDL), as the National Geographic show “Taboo” explains, is a form of fantasy role-playing in which adults temporarily regress to babylike behaviors. And this store in Mount Prospect, Ill., appeals to this demographic.
