Greta Thunberg: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

Her ancestor on her father’s side is the Nobel Prize winner, Svante Arrhenius. Arrhenius was a Swedish physicist and chemist who received the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1903. He is known for myriad scientific contributions but it was his discovery that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide increase the Earth’s surface temperature. That finding led to the conclusion that human-made carbon dioxide emissions cause global warming.

Bad for Business: How KYC/AML Makes Everyone a “Terrorist”

By Graham Smith

Two reports from risk solutions group Lexisnexis assert that anti-money laundering (AML) and know your customer (KYC) policies can negatively affect a business’s bottom line and customer service significantly. A recent trip to the local post office for a money order certainly had a negative effect on my own experience, thanks to the same regulations, which make paying customers feel like they are suspected terrorists just for doing business.

Everyone’s a Suspect

A recent visit to my local post office here in Japan, to get a simple USD money order for a passport, opened my eyes to just how far the KYC/AML freight train has already progressed...

Biological Male Sets World Record For Women’s Cycling

Biologically male cyclist Rachel McKinnon won a women’s world championship Saturday.

McKinnon, representing Canada, won gold for the sprint event in the women’s 35-39 age category at the 2019 Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Manchester, England.

McKinnon set a women’s world record in the qualifying event, the BBC reported. McKinnon, a philosophy professor at the College of Charleston, won the same event in 2018.

McKinnon told Sky News in an interview that aired Friday that it would be unfair if the cyclist was kept out of women’s events.

NBC News Thinks Getting Microchipped Sounds Super-Convenient

A while back, Brandon Turbeville wrote about the UK’s pro-microchipping coverage. And now, NBC News published a pro-microchipping video, gushing over the “convenience” of having your keys, your money, and your ID all placed in your hand in a device about the size of a grain of rice.

Are we literally at a place in humanity in which carrying a wallet is too much trouble? Heaven help those who feel that way if they ever have to acquire their own food and water.

Report: 95 percent of global warming models are wrong

Former NASA scientist Dr. Roy Spencer says that climate models used by government agencies to create policies “have failed miserably.” Spencer analyzed 90 climate models against surface temperature and satellite temperature data, and found that more than 95 percent of the models “have over-forecast the warming trend since 1979, whether we use their own surface temperature dataset (HadCRUT4), or our satellite dataset of lower tropospheric temperatures (UAH).”

“I am growing weary of the variety of emotional, misleading, and policy-useless statements like ‘most warming since the 1950s is human caused’ or ‘97% of climate scientists agree humans are contributing to warming’, neither of which leads to the conclusion we need to substantially increase energy prices and freeze and starve more poor people to death for the greater good. Yet, that is the direction we are heading,” Spencer wrote on his blog.

Oops: 1 in 5 people misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis – study

In a new study, researchers from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and the University of Vermont (UVM) evaluated 241 instances of patients who received diagnoses of multiple sclerosis. The participants visited two academic medical centers in Los Angeles, California – they got referred to the hospitals by healthcare professionals in other L.A. clinics.

“The diagnosis of MS is tricky,” explained Dr. Marwa Kaisey, an author of the study who worked at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. “Both the symptoms and MRI testing results can look like other conditions, such as stroke, migraines, and vitamin B12 deficiency.”

The study sought to find out how many people got misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Additionally, it looked for general characteristics in misdiagnosed patients.

The results showed that many of the patients misdiagnosed with multiple sclerosis underwent treatment for a nonexistent disease.

How the Queen could bag herself a cool £100M a year thanks to a new auction

Her Majesty could bag herself an extra £100million a year following an expansion in offshore wind farms. According to MailOnline, auctions for the offshore development officially began last week. This is due to a 2012 move by then Chancellor George Osborne to replace the Civil List with the Sovereign Grant.

The new Grant gives the Queen 25 percent of profits from the Crown Estate, which owns the seabed within British territorial waters, which extend almost 14 miles from the coast.

The Estate charges rent equal to two percent of revenues for use of seabeds for wind farms and collected £41million last year.

It will also collect “option fees” from the successful bidders for the five new concessions.

Trump ‘fully prepared’ for military action against Turkey – Pompeo

US President Donald Trump is “fully prepared” to use military force against Turkey if “needed,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has declared, qualifying the statement by insisting Washington prefers to use its “diplomatic powers.”

“We prefer peace to war,” Pompeo told CNBC in a taped interview that aired Monday afternoon.

"But in the event that kinetic action or military action is needed, you should know that President Trump is fully prepared to undertake that action."

He stopped short of revealing what action on Turkey’s part would constitute such a “need.”
