Psychedelic Drugs Are Finally Being Used to Treat Depression in US Hospitals

By Elias Marat

As the country increasingly sheds its prohibitionist stereotypes and misconceptions about psychedelic drugs, scientists and psychiatrists are increasingly embracing their potent qualities as “game-changers” in the fight to treat mental health disorders.

The new trend unfolding across the U.S. has converted drugs like ketamine—once known primarily as a recreational drug used at raves and underground concerts—into a powerful tool for mental health professionals in the Midwest, according to the Times of Northwest Indiana...

People Already Hurting From 5G in Geneva, Switzerland

By B.N. Frank

In 2017, Swiss doctor Bertrand Buchs launched a petition asking for a moratorium on installation and many doctors and scientists have already signed it.

Worldwide opposition to 5G is growing and includes individuals and organizations concerned about other issues associated with this technology in addition to biological and environmental risks. Regardless, 5G continues to be installed and operated in the U.S. and around the world even though it’s been reported that people and their pets have been getting sick from exposure. This is now also being reported in Geneva, Switzerland...

New Study Reveals How ADHD Drugs “Alter The Structure of Children’s Brains”

By Elias Marat

As attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) continues to remain an extremely common diagnosis for children in the United States, researchers are warning doctors to hold off on issuing popular ADHD drugs such as Ritalin and Concerta unless absolutely necessary.

The warnings come as scans of children who take such drugs as methylphenidate (MPH), commonly known as Ritalin, show that they have a major effect on the development of white matter in the brains of children, impairing their ability to learn and coordinate communication between regions of the brain...

China Prepares Its “Nuclear Option” In Trade War

As the trade war with the U.S. continues to escalate, China has re-engaged with Iran on three key projects and is weighing the use of what both Washington and Beijing term the ‘nuclear option’, a senior oil and gas industry source who works closely with Iran’s Petroleum Ministry told OilPrice.com last week.

For the first of these projects - Phase 11 of the supergiant South Pars non-associated gas field (SP11) - last week saw a statement from the chief executive officer of the Pars Oil and Gas Company (POGC) that talks had resumed with Chinese developers to advance the project. Originally the subject of an extensive contract signed by France’s Total before it pulled out due to re-imposed U.S. sanctions on Iran, talks had been well-advanced with the China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) to take up the slack on development.

Prescription Infant Formulas Found To Be Contaminated With Aluminum

By Arjun Walia

A new study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health has shown that multiple popular infant prescriptions are contaminated with aluminum. You may be asking how much aluminum, but the authors make it a point to stress that there are no safe amounts of aluminum levels that can be inside of a human body, let alone a newborn baby. That being said, the amounts found are listed within the abstract of the study...

Study Shows That Horses Understand Our Emotions & Remember Us Deeply

By Dulce Ruby

“What we’ve found is that horses can not only read human facial expressions but they can also remember a person’s previous emotional state when they meet them later that day — and, crucially, that they adapt their behavior accordingly,” Karen McComb, a professor at the University of Sussex, said in a news release. “Essentially horses have a memory for emotion.”

Scientists have previously shown horses can recognize expressions, but the latest findings, published this week in the journal Current Biology, are the first to show the mammals can recall an expression linked with an individual’s face...

Silicon Valley Wants To Read Your Mind – Here’s Why You Should Be Worried

By Garfield Benjamin, Solent University

Not content with monitoring almost everything you do online, Facebook now wants to read your mind as well. The social media giant recently announced a breakthrough in its plan to create a device that reads people’s brainwaves to allow them to type just by thinking. And Elon Musk wants to go even further. One of the Tesla boss’s other companies, Neuralink, is developing a brain implant to connect people’s minds directly to a computer.

Musk admits that he takes inspiration from science fiction, and that he wants to make sure humans can “keep up” with artificial intelligence. He seems to have missed the part of sci-fi that acts as a warning for the implications of technology.

These mind-reading systems could affect our privacy, security, identity, equality and personal safety. Do we really want all that left to companies with philosophies such as that of Facebook’s former mantra, “move fast and break things”?...

Instead of red flag laws, why won’t lawmakers investigate psychiatric drugs and their links to violence?

As we’ve come to expect, “RINOs” (Republicans in name only) like Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina are now eagerly pushing the so-called “red flag” laws that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner want to see implemented all across the country as an affront to the Second Amendment. But why is nothing being said about the role that psychiatric pharmaceuticals like SSRIs (selective serotonin reputake inhibitors) quite obviously play in America’s mass shootings?

Active Ingredient in Weedkiller Found in 19 of 20 Top Beer and Wine Brands, Study Says

Some of America’s most popular beer and wine contain glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, according to a report by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group (U.S. PIRG).

In a report titled Glyphosate pesticide in beer and wine, U.S. PIRG tested 20 samples of beer, wine, and hard cider, including several organic brands. The report found that all but one contained the potentially harmful chemical glyphosate.

Astronomers studying ALIEN radio signals discover 8 NEW sources, one from nearby galaxy

Astronomers studying Fast Radio Bursts (FRBs), some of the rarest and most enigmatic phenomena in deep space, have detected eight new repeating signals, which could hold the key to solving where exactly they come from.

While these curious signals are alien in origin, no one should be expecting little green men contacting their friends in Area 51 about the allegedly impending September raid. We currently don’t know what these bursts are or what causes them, though some suspect they may be the death rattles of neutron stars or young magnetars, extremely dense star cores spinning in a magnetic field.

"Pesticide Cheerleader": EPA Rebukes California With Ban On Warning Labels For Bayer's Roundup

President Donald Trump's Environmental Protection Agency was accused of being a pesticide "cheerleader" last week after the agency said it would not approval labels that say that glyphosate — the active ingredient in Roundup and other weedkillers — is known to cause cancer.

In a statement released Thursday announcing the move, the EPA dug in on its assertion that glyphosate does not cause cancer, though critics have said that is "an industry-friendly conclusion that's simply not based on the best available science."

The new guidance takes aim at California's 2017 move, in adherence with its Proposition 65, to add glyphosate to its list of chemicals known to cause cancer and require warning labels. The state cited the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer 2015 assessment that glyphosate is "probably carcinogenic to humans."

Lone Shooters, Terrorism, and Semantics

This is a big one. It’s so big, in fact, that many people will want to turn their backs on it and pretend it doesn’t and couldn’t exist. But it’s real. It does exist.

No killing of innocent people can be called a “negligible statistic.” But what label do you apply when an entire government stands by and does nothing, while millions of people die?

A supposed lone shooter motivated by political ideology kills 20 people, and this is called a terrorist act. But what category do you apply when a government enables a monopoly that destroys millions of lives?...

USDA issues recall of 700 lbs. of beef and pork that may have been blended with HUMAN blood… did somebody fall into the grinder?

According to official data from the USDA, just four large firms control about half of chicken production, 66 percent of pork production, and a whopping 85 percent of beef production. This same oligarchy also control about 75 percent of soybean seeds, up from 50 percent in 2000; and a whopping 85 percent of corn seed sales, up from 25 percent in 2000.

As Natural News reported back in 2013, this incremental takeover of agriculture throughout America has been a long time coming, and continues to ratchet up with the blessing of the USDA. In time, there will be no more small farmers in the U.S., as all food production will have been consolidated into the hands of a select “elite” few.

“Is there anything safe to eat or drink?” asks one Big League Politics commenter about the dire situation that Americans face when dealing with today’s questionable food supply.

Flashback: Brits sickened as Dispatches exposes 'disgusting' chicken washed in chemicals

Channel 4 viewers were sickened last night (June 3) after a Dispatches documentary exposed stomach-churning practices in the US chicken industry.

In The Truth About Chlorinated Chicken, presenter Kate Quilton went to America to investigate the country's poultry production - looking in particular at how chicken there is washed with chlorine, a practice banned in the EU.

The report featured grim footage shot by an undercover employee in a processing plant that highlighted a number of bad hygiene practices.

At one point, a supervisor was heard discussing "a trend of adulterated product" or, in other words, pieces of glass present in chicken.

The programme also talked about "amputations" in the American poultry industry - staff losing fingers and other body parts due to dangerous working processes.

Sunscreens Release Metals and Inorganic Nutrients Into Seawater

Beachgoers are becoming increasingly aware of the potentially harmful effects UV filters from sunscreens can have on coral and other marine organisms when the protective lotions wash off their bodies into the ocean.

Now, researchers have studied how sunscreens release different compounds — trace metals and inorganic nutrients — into Mediterranean seawater, with unknown effects on marine ecology. They report their results in ACS’ journal Environmental Science & Technology.

Millions of people are hitting the beach slathered in sunscreen this summer. Some might choose “coral-safe” sunscreens that lack oxybenzone and octinoxate, the two substances most widely linked to coral reef damage. However, scientists don’t yet know what effects other trace compounds in sunscreens might have on marine ecosystems...

If great white sharks can’t escape heavy metals poisoning, where does that leave the rest of us?

The great white sharks in South African waters have been found to contain high levels of arsenic, lead, and mercury in their blood. While the sharks might shrug off the deadly effects of the heavy metals, the presence of the toxins suggest that their prey were badly contaminated – and humans also rely on some of those same food sources.

The sharks get away with significant concentrations of heavy metals in their bodies thanks to their supercharged healing factor. But other animals – including humans – will get sick and die if they get exposed to the same amounts of the cancer-causing toxins.

The alarming discovery came from researchers at the University of Miami (UM). They checked blood samples taken from great white sharks that prowled the coasts of South Africa.

AC-powered LEDs Could Cut the Cost of Lighting

Engineers at Pennsylvania State University have demonstrated a practical way to integrate gallium nitride LEDs and their power supply circuits onto the same chip using industry-standard manufacturing processes. The result is a lighting chip that runs directly from the AC electricity supplied by a wall outlet, with no need for the intermediate step of converting the electricity to low-voltage DC on separate silicon chips and other components.

The Penn State engineers describe the work in IEEE Transactions on Electron Devices.

According to Penn State engineering professor Jian Xu, who led the research, integrating the LED’s driver system onto the gallium nitride chip could cut the cost of manufacturing LED lighting as well as the cost of maintaining that lighting. As much as 60 percent of the cost of an LED bulb comes from the driver electronics, he says.

Location of Amelia Earhart's lost plane could be revealed by a small mark on a black and white photo taken in 1937 - and the 77-year-old explorer who found the Titanic is on an expedition to find it

A small smudge on an black and white photo taken in 1937 is leading the man who discovered the Titanic on a mission to find the remains of Amelia Earhart's plane.

The image was taken by British colonial officer Eric Bevington after his freighter ran aground on Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro Island, in the Pacific Ocean three months after Earhart and her navigator Fred Noonan went missing on their attempt to circumnavigate the globe.

In the far-left corner on the photo was a minuscule mark, measuring one-millimeter, which decades later could hold the secret to where the plane went down.

After digital enhancement in 2010, experts said the smudge is likely the landing gear of a Lockheed Model 10-E Electra - Earhart's plane.

Our Galaxy's Supermassive Black Hole Has Emitted a Mysteriously Bright Flare

The supermassive black hole at the heart of the Milky Way, Sagittarius A*, is relatively quiet. It's not an active nucleus, spewing light and heat into the space around it; most of the time, the black hole's activity is low key, with minimal fluctuations in its brightness.

Most of the time. Recently, astronomers caught it going absolutely bananas, suddenly growing 75 times brighter before subsiding back to normal levels. That's the brightest we've ever seen Sgr A* in near-infrared wavelengths.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Objects hitting the event horizon can have as much as 1/3 of their rest mass converted to energy. So I would suggest that the black hole sucked something in.

SOURCE: THE INTERCEPT
Defenders of the chemicals known as PFAS have seized upon an industry-funded study of cancer patients as evidence that the compounds used to make Teflon, firefighting foam, and many other products aren’t as dangerous as they seem.

The study, which was funded by the Minnesota-based global conglomerate 3M and published in February 2018 in the journal Toxicological Sciences, exposed 49 terminal cancer patients to high doses of PFOA. Now recognized as a widespread water contaminant, PFOA was originally developed by 3M.

SCIENTISTS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT EBOLA IS NOW CURABLE

SOURCE: THEMINDUNLEASHED.COM
(TMU) — Scientists have declared that the era in which the Ebola virus is considered an incurable disease has come to an end.

The announcement, made Monday, comes after two experimental treatments proved so effective in recent trials that they will now be offered to all patients in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The country is currently in the throes of a year-long outbreak of Ebola—the second-largest outbreak ever.

The disease, which leads to severe cases of fever, headache, and hemorrhaging, normally kills about half of those infected, yet the latest outbreak has claimed the lives of around 70 percent of those who have contracted it. According to Prof. Jean-Jacques Muyembe, the director-general of the National Institute for Biomedical Research in Kinshasa, many have walked into Ebola treatment centers only to leave the centers dead.

Prayers that this proves true; having a real treatment that works here, would be nothing short of a miracle for all those suffering from this ailment, or exposed to it.

Is This The Key To Commercial Nuclear Fusion?

While the concept of harnessing nuclear fusion, the process which powers the sun, for use here on Earth has long been the “Holy Grail” of energy science, it has long been too good to be true. Nuclear fusion has the potential to solve some of the world’s greatest crises: it’s several times more powerful than nuclear fission, it can be produced using only hydrogen or lithium, which means that it creates none of the hazardous radioactive waste that makes nuclear fission so infamously problematic, and it produces absolutely zero carbon emissions.

Why the Prescription Drug Market Doesn’t Work for Patients

By Laura Williams and Dan Sanchez

What does it take to get vital medical care in America? For Laura Matson, a type-1 diabetic, it took upending her whole life. To pay for her insulin treatments, she had to sell her car and furniture, relocate, and even give away her dog Nicky, as the BBC reported. And she is not alone. Many Americans struggle to make ends meet as their health care costs rise.

These rising costs are strange, in a sense. The prices of other consumer goods—nutritious food, digital devices, clothing, etc.—generally fall as technology advances and production becomes more efficient. Why is health care such an exception to this rule?...

To illustrate just how much those third-party sellers mean to Amazon, statista.com reports that in the second quarter of 2019, those sellers' products represented 54 percent of Amazon's paid units.3

Unfortunately, those third-party sellers, which have taken over Amazon's platform by selling every imaginable type of product and service, all with a click of a button — the very technology Bezos envisioned from the start — are also a breeding ground for fraudsters who pose as brand name sellers, but actually sell knock-off products. Even worse, some of these fakes could cause real harm to consumers, especially when it comes to foods, drugs, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

Now we know why that 'conspiracy thinking is a crime' thing was booted up by the FBI. In any case, Epstein DID NOT kill himself. Epstein was/is a narcissistic sociopath. Under NO circumstances do people of this ilk take their own life.

On the matter of corruption, there is zero doubt that those FBI agents and CIA operatives and what have you from wherever, are unaware that a small handful of Stone Age Arabs DID NOT attack the United States on 9/11. It was a joint effort between Israel and rogue elements of US intelligence services, with some assistance by MI6... the Turks and sundry. The complete article by Warrior for Truth; Christopher Bollyn can no longer be found but, here is a little something by someone else.

He was running the world's biggest honey pot scheme for the Mossad. That's your bottom line for the whole escapade. Everything else is just window dressing and obfuscation.

Jeffrey Epstein Dead? I Seriously Doubt It!

I smell a rat here in terms of this "suicide" and several of my fellow Canadian bloggers have been all over this "suicide" and have posted some interesting material at their own blogs... I do want to start with an interesting report that Greencrow, who of course hails from the wild and untamed region of southern British Columbia, and writes the important blog: "Greencrow As The Crow Flies" at www.greencrowasthecrowflies.blogspot.com.... Here in fact is the link to Greencrow's own assessment of this "Epstein suicide" right here for my own readers to ponder:

THEY USED RANDOM TRAINING PHOTOS FOR THE EPSTEIN DEATH HOAX AND ONE OF THEM IS A PHOTO OF EMT'S TRAINING IN A NYFD GARAGE, WHERE THEY PARK THE FIRE TRUCKS. THEY SPLICED EPSTEIN ONTO THE GURNEY IN PLACE OF WHAT WAS PROBABLY A "RESUSCI ANNE" DOLL THAT WOULD BE USED FOR TRAINING. THE ORIGINATED IN AN NYFD GARAGE, AND NOT THE HOSPITAL, WHERE THE NEW YORK POST CLAIMED HE WAS TAKEN.

Scott Adams: Word-Thinking Replaces Thinking in America

Human beings are not rational creatures. We are easy to program with what I call “word-thinking” of the type that evolves nationalist, to nationalists who are mostly white, to white nationalists, to white supremacists. There is no logic connecting those things, just similarities in words.

FCC Decides NO CHANGE to Radiation Limits For 5G Despite Research Supporting Public Outcry Over Risks

By B.N. Frank

The role of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is to regulate the Telecom Industry even though they are not a health or environmental agency.

Current rules, safety limits and guidelines for RF radiation exposure were adopted in 1996 and don’t apply to how most people use or are exposed to RF emitting devices and infrastructure today. They even don’t apply to how current technology and products are manufactured and marketed...

'Mad' Flat-Earther to Launch Himself 5,000 Feet Up on a Homemade Steam Rocket Sunday

In March 2018, after a few failed attempts, Hughes successfully launched aboard his rocket and survived the trip, landing via parachute. The then-62-year-old Hughes walked away with some soreness and a compressed vertebra, he told Space.com. In the upcoming launch attempt, Hughes will aim for an even greater height: 5,000 feet (1,500 m).

Hughes will lift off aboard a refurbished, improved version of the steam-powered rocket he launched last year. He told Space.com that he's using steam to propel his rocket because it is both inexpensive and relatively simple. "There's no fuel cost; it's water," he said. "Homemade Astronauts," which is set to premiere in 2020, showcases civilians who endeavor to build and launch rockets and equipment for spaceflight.

Russia invents self-destroying satellite to solve burgeoning ‘space junk’ problem

Russia’s Roscosmos space agency has invented a satellite with the ability to destroy itself at the end of its life, offering a solution to the significant problem of space debris.

The materials used in the satellite means it would “evaporate” when it is no longer useful, preventing it from adding to the increasing volume of defunct man-made objects that are floating around in space.

A patent filed with the Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent) shows that this would involve constructing the satellite out of materials that sublimate, meaning they transition directly from solid to gas without becoming liquid.

This clever construction would allow the satellites to self-decompose when they get a signal from Earth.

Low Carbohydrate Diets Improve Blood Sugar Regulation in Type 2 Diabetes

Patients with type 2 diabetes improve their ability to regulate blood sugar levels if they eat food with a reduced carbohydrate content and an increased share of protein and fat. This is shown by a recent study conducted at Bispebjerg Hospital in collaboration with, among other partners, Aarhus University and the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports at the University of Copenhagen. The findings are contrary to the conventional dietary recommendations for type 2 diabetics...

Trump administration reauthorizes use of "cyanide bombs" to kill wild animals

The Environmental Protection Agency has recently reauthorized the use of controversial chemical traps to kill coyotes, dogs, foxes and other wild animals across the U.S. These "cyanide bombs" are meant to protect livestock although some environmental groups are calling for a nationwide ban and saying they are inhumane.

According to a recent interim decision, EPA officials approved the use of M-44 devices, which trap wildlife with bait before releasing sodium cyanide into their mouths, killing them.

The devices "inhumanely and indiscriminately killing thousands of animals every year," the Center for Biological Diversity said in a statement Wednesday. "They have also injured people."

Indian Activists Oppose Oil Refinery Project Citing Environmental Concerns, As Protests Flare up

By Vishal M

In March 2019, following large protests from farmers and environmental activists, the Indian government moved a planned $44 billion ‘green’ oil refinery project out of the ecologically sensitive Nanar region in Ratnagiri on the Konkan coast. Recently, calls from pro-refinery supporters to bring the project back to Ratnagiri have stoked fears among activists and farmers that the project will be reinstated in the area, causing damage to the environment and affecting livelihoods...

EPA reauthorizes use of ‘cyanide bombs’ to kill wild animals

The Trump administration has reauthorized the use of controversial traps dubbed “cyanide bombs” to kill coyotes, foxes and other animals across the US.

“Cyanide traps can’t be used safely by anyone, anywhere,” said Collette Adkins, carnivore conservation director at the Center for Biological Diversity.

In 2017, a child was temporarily blinded and three pet dogs killed in two incidents involving the use of M-44s in Idaho and Wyoming, the BBC reported.

Canyon Mansfield’s family successfully sued the US government for $150,000 last year. One of the devices had been placed near their property in Pocatello, Idaho, and his dog triggered the device, The Guardian reported.

The “Science” That Google Relies On

By Lynne McTaggart

Under the emphatic headline ‘This has to stop,’ my good friend, bestselling author Arielle Ford (The Soulmate Secret), posted an article claiming that Google was burying Alternative Medicine sites to ‘protect people against false claims.’

Among the comments from her readers was someone who wrote in to defend Google’s and Wikipedia’s decisions. As it turned out, he revealed, he was one of Google’s rankers, who determine the placement of information on the search engine’s pages. Naturally, he said, the Mayo Clinic would appear in an earlier page above an alternative medicine site because its practices are based on far more science than alternative medicine is.

This was a fascinating, if brief, insight into the minds of Google’s and Wikipedia’s adjudicators and how they are determining what version of reality the likes of you and me are allowed to see. I have to take issue with this fellow’s definition of the word ‘scientific.’...

Cell Phones Touching Body Exceed Safety Limits in U.S. and Europe Say Experts — Children More Vulnerable

Monsanto Paid Google To Censor Results; Operated Fusion Center To Discredit Journalists And Activists

By Aaron Kesel

Monsanto (Bayer) operated an intelligence-gathering “fusion center,” to discredit journalists and activists, including singer Neil Young, and paid Google to bury results in its search engine, The Guardian, reported.

Activist Post previously reported that Bayer/Monsanto — the formerly merged company of potentially two of the evilest businesses in history — had kept a file of 200 names, including journalists and lawmakers in hopes of influencing their positions on pesticides according to French prosecutors.

Now, The Guardian has an exposé on Monsanto going a step beyond by spying on journalists through use of a Fusion Center type operation and paying Google to hide negative results...

Clean energy dream fuels a dirty mineral rush

By 2030, there will be 140 million electric cars on Earth, and by 2040 every third vehicle will be powered by green electricity instead of the fossil fuels that have been slowly choking the environment for the past couple centuries. That’s according to assessments by Glencore Plc and BloombergNEF.

Sounds like we’re on the right track and Greta Thunberg’s zero-emission dream could be achieved within her lifetime. Humanity is finally coming to its senses.

Not quite. All those cars will need batteries, and all those batteries will need to be built with a small periodic table of minerals. And all those minerals need to be mined – in some cases strip-mining the rest of the planet’s explored deposits.

9 Studies You Should Be Aware of Before Trying The Ketogenic Diet

Op-Ed by Joe Martino

The ketogenic diet has popped up as a popular approach to weight loss in the last few years. Is it successful at that? Sure, it is. I’ve experimented with the diet myself years ago when I was looking to lose some belly fat. I was entering into ketosis in a different way than most, as I was not eating any animal products, but it does in fact work.

But like any animal product based diet, what are the consequences of eating so much food that does not truly jive with our human bodies? Not only that, is fast weight loss more important than keeping our mortality rate down?

There are a couple of videos that everyone should see...

Medical Skin Creams Could be a Lethal Fire Risk When Soaked into Fabric – Here’s What You Need to Know

By Sarah Hall, Anglia Ruskin University and Joanne Morrissey, Anglia Ruskin University

Several deaths from fires have been linked with the use of these skin emollients. A BBC freedom of information request revealed that 37 fire deaths since 2010 have been linked to creams that contain paraffin. But fire reports don’t require such information to be included and not all fire services responded to questions. So the actual number of deaths and injuries may be higher...

X-37B Military Space Plane's Latest Mystery Mission Hits 700 Days

The U.S. Air Force's X-37B military space plane has now been circling Earth for 700 days, just a few weeks shy of the vehicle's spaceflight-duration record.

The robotic X-37B launched on its fifth and latest mission, known as Orbital Test Vehicle 5 (OTV-5), on Sept. 7, 2017. And the reusable spacecraft, which looks like a miniature version of NASA's space shuttle, has been zipping around our planet ever since.

Exactly what the X-37B is doing up there remains a topic of much speculation;

Hubble Telescope's Gorgeous New Jupiter Views Could Help Demystify Shrinking Great Red Spot

An amazing new image of Jupiter captured by the Hubble Space Telescope could shed light on the gas giant's mysterious atmospheric dynamics.

One of the most prominent mysteries involves Jupiter's famous Great Red Spot, which has been shrinking since at least the 1800s.

The centuries-old enigma is very complex, said officials with the Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) in Baltimore, which runs Hubble's science mission: "Attempting to understand the forces driving Jupiter's atmosphere is like trying to predict the pattern cream will make when it is poured into a hot cup of coffee."

How US regulators embrace toxic pesticides & the corporations that make them

As an increasing number of hazardous chemicals are banned around the world, they remain legal in the US. Why are American regulators so slow to move, and who benefits from their inaction?

Dozens of pesticides, up to 85 in total, approved for widespread agricultural use in the United States have been banned elsewhere in the world. For example, the US allows 11 different pesticides banned in China, and 17 that have been prohibited in Brazil.

The contrast is especially stark in Europe. The recently banned pesticide chlorpyrifos has serious genotoxic and neurological effects, especially in children, the European Food Safety Authority warned in a report published over the weekend. The pesticide, which comes up for re-approval in January, does not comply with EU health regulations because a safe exposure level cannot be established, even at the lowest experimental quantity.

Trump administration approves use of ‘cyanide bombs’ to kill wild animals

The use of “cyanide bombs” to kill wild animals has been authorised by the Trump administration.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has taken the first step to re-authorise the spring-loaded traps, known as M-44s, which are filled with sodium cyanide.

The devices are embedded in the ground and spray the poison when activated by animals attracted to bait, such as coyotes and foxes.

Idaho decided against using the traps after a 14-year-old boy was injured and his dog died when he came across one on land near his home in 2017.
