Study: 17,230 Children Poisoned by Laundry Detergent Pods

by Mike Barrett
Natural Society
Nov 13, 2014

We have gotten to a point where crayons and play-dough pose no toxic threat to children, but what of other household items? A new study has found that thousands of children in the United States are being poisoned by laundry detergent pods, often after consuming them. Needless to say, the researchers are calling for tighter safety standards.

The study analyzed data from 2012 to 2013, finding that the United States poison control centers received 17,230 reports related to these toxic laundry detergent pods. Approximately 80%of the calls (about 13,000 cases) were from concerned parents who discovered that their children had actually ingested the pods. The remaining calls were sparked from children breaking open the pods and exposing their eyes to the chemicals while inhaling the toxic fumes.

The ‘Selfie’ Obsession: A Chronic, Narcissistic Mental Disorder

21st Century Wire asks…
[Dec 13, 2014]

Does this picture make you uncomfortable?

Obama-Biden-SelfiePresident Obama and VP Biden: Was it just horse play, insecurity, or do they have compulsive narcissist tendencies?

Well, it should. As a member of the voting public, it should make you feel more than awkward seeing your top two chief executives engrossed in one of the most banal contemporary pastimes ever – taking a ‘Selfie’ [noun. a picture taken of a person, by that person].

One also must consider the very real possibility that these two men might be suffering from one of many mental conditions, including Body Dysmorphic Disorder, that are afflicting millions of smart phone users worldwide…

1-Gym-Selfie‘Gym Selfies’ are now some of the most popular forms of digital exhibitionism.

Everyone is taking selfies now. Should we really be worried about this trend, or is it just a case of people being empowered on a microblogging platform like Twitter, or Instagram? Writer Donna Highfill explains, “I have run into at least 10 people recently who have stopped on fast-moving, heavily-populated sidewalks to take a #selfie. There is no historical building behind them, no beautiful landscape, no real reason to take a picture of themselves other than the fact that they can reverse the camera on the phone, gaze at their own visage, and then share it on social media so the rest of the world can gaze upon it as well.”

“If smartphones were ponds, a large portion of our population would have already drowned.”

No one is immune. Even celebrities who you’d think are already getting enough face time are still drawn to the cheap narcissistic released provided by the selfie.

Yesterday, the digital oligarchs at Twitter declared 2014 as the ‘Year of the Selfie‘. According to executives there, the most popular, the most retweeted, ‘tweet’ of the year was by comedian Ellen DeGeneres at the Oscar awards last March – with her celebrity ‘friends’, including Bradley Cooper, Meryl Streep, and Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt. Her Tweet was ‘favorited’ over 2 million times and retweeted 3.3 million times.

It later turned out that DeGeneres’s spontaneous selfie was just another corporate money-making scam, as was confirmed by the Wall Street Journal. Samsung executives even had to teach Degeneres how to use the Galaxy Note 3 device before the Oscars.

No occasion is sacred either, including somber events like funerals (see photo of Obama, Cameron and Danish PM further down article). Obama’s funeral gaffe went on to inspire other more macabre copycat selfies…

From a pop psychology perspective, the textbook definition of narcissism is fairly harmless, described as, “extreme selfishness, with a grandiose view of one’s own talents and a craving for admiration, as characterizing a personality type.” From a psychoanalysis point of view, it’s much more critical: “self-centeredness arising from failure to distinguish the self from external objects, either in very young babies or as a feature of mental disorder.”

Experts are now finding through new clinical studies, that this existing narcissistic mental disorder is now being further exacerbated by the introduction of hand-held technology and the ability to upload an image to a ready-made crowd of voyeurs in a matter of seconds.

MUST WATCH/LISTEN — Sage of Quay Radio – Elana Freeland – Chemtrails, Morgellons and Transhumanism (July 2014)

The Sage of Quay Radio Hour
Jul 16, 2014

Tonight my very special guest is Elana Freeland.

Over the years, Elana has been a Waldorf school pioneer, storyteller, lecturer, and writer. She has written for alternative publications all her adult life giving non-mainstream issues a voice. For the past two decades, she has ghostwritten several books on diverse topics and edited the stories of survivors of MK-ULTRA and ritual abuse. She is the author of her own Sub Rosa America series, a fictional history of the United States since John F. Kennedy’s assassination. In 1996, she was awarded a Master of Arts in Great Books from St. John’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, including honors for her thesis in historiography.

Her current book – Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth, is creating quite a stir. Elana’s book examines how chemtrails and ionospheric heaters like the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project (HAARP) in Alaska services a full-spectrum dominance. This “Revolution in Military Affairs” needs an atmospheric medium to assure wireless access to the bodies and brains of anyone on Earth—from heat-seeking missiles to a form of mind control.

She hopes to write another book on how HAARP, chemtrails, and the Smart Grid relate to neuroscience, remote mind control, and the Orwellian transhumanist future which is now beyond the planning stage.

Along with discussing Chemtrails during our discussion tonight, Elana goes into great detail regarding the science and findings behind Morgellons Disease, the work of Clifford Carnicom and the transhumanist objectives of the global elites.

Banking culture breeds dishonesty, scientific study finds

By Kate Kelland, Health and Science Correspondent
LONDON Wed Nov 19, 2014 1:00pm EST
Reuters

Nov 19 (Reuters) – A banking culture that implicitly puts financial gain above all else fuels greed and dishonesty and makes bankers more likely to cheat, according to the findings of a scientific study.

Researchers in Switzerland studied bank workers and other professionals in experiments in which they won more money if they cheated, and found that bankers were more dishonest when they were made particularly aware of their professional role.

When bank employees were primed to think less about their profession and more about normal life, however, they were less inclined to dishonesty.

“Many scandals..have plagued the financial industry in the last decade,” Ernst Fehr, a researcher at the University of Zurich who co-led the study, told reporters in a telephone briefing. “These scandals raise the question whether the business culture in the banking industry is favouring, or at least tolerating, fraudulent or unethical behaviours.”

Fehr’s team conducted a laboratory game with bankers, then repeated it with other types of workers as comparisons.

The dark side of social media: Baroness Susan Greenfield says social media is rewiring our brains

news.com.au
Nov 17, 2014

Baroness Susan Greenfield is a brain scientist who says time spent with electronic devices is rewiring the brain. Source: News Limited

WE’RE all guilty of it. We’re at the pub, dinner table or enjoying a fun arvo with a group of friends and, instead of talking to the people we’re with, we’re preoccupied with our phones.

Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, video games and — dare I say it — news.com.au all provide endless distractions, as well as more opportunities to share, connect and spout your views than ever before.

But what effect is this having on us? More crucially, how is it affecting our brains?

Renowned British neuroscientist Baroness Susan Greenfield says modern technology is not only changing the way we interact, it is changing the wiring in our brain.

Professor Greenfield, who is also a member of the British upper house, says the hyper-connectedness of today’s youth gives them shorter attention spans and makes them more narcissistic, more susceptible to depression and anxiety, and less empathetic.

“The mid-21st century mind might almost be infantilised, characterised by short attention spans, sensationalism, inability to empathise and a shaky sense of identity,” she told parliament in 2009.

Her interest in the subject has culminated in her book Mind Change, released in August, in which she argues:

● That social media is affecting our sense of identity and ability to empathise,

● That video games are shortening attention spans, and increasing our recklessness and aggression, and

● That search engines are making us confuse information for knowledge.

Prof Greenfield says that the brain is exquisitely designed to adapt to its environment and, because technology has created a vastly changed social environment, it follows that our brains may also being changing in an unprecedented way.

What effect does our addiction to screens have on the way we relate to each other?

She argues that today’s youth are developing in a world where relationships are increasingly formed online, which means we are less able to rehearse important social skills.

“Human beings love talking about themselves. Nature has developed body language so you can be sure that your interaction is reasonably secure, and you don’t make yourself vulnerable, through eye contact, gestures and pheromones,” Prof Greenfield told news.com.au.

But words — the primary means through which people interact on social media — make up only 10 per cent of the impact made when you meet someone.

“If you are not rehearsing those visual clues, you are going to be at a disadvantage,” Prof Greenfield said.

She said people were much more likely to insult others online because they didn’t have those cues.

“If someone says ‘I hate you’ to someone’s face, they may not say it again because the way it makes that person feel may be extremely hurtful, which can give the person who said it a physiological churning,” Prof Greenfield said.

“Those constraints are not available on social networking. You don’t have that handbrake … That’s what I’m concerned about.”

Don’t Replace Facebook, Disrupt It

LocalOrg

November 11, 2014 (Tony Cartalucci – LocalOrg) – Facebook is a problem. It is undoubtedly being used by special interests to manipulate and monitor entire populations both within the United States and well beyond. It represents a tool that in no way serves the people actually using it, and instead allows special interests to use the users. It is a dream global panopticon for the abusive dictators that run Western society and presume dominion over what they call an “international order.”

But in order to counter this threat, Facebook cannot simply be “replaced.” It specifically, and what it represents, must be disrupted entirely.

Facebook is a Skinner Box for Humans 

Facebook has been at the center of several recent controversies that are increasingly leaving users disillusioned and in search of alternatives. At the center of these controversies is Facebook’s “news feed” feature. Ideally, news feed would work by showing on your timeline updates from those individuals and organizations you follow. There are two options for news feed – “most recent” and “top stories.” Facebook has decided to upend this feature by insidiously controlling what appears on your news feed regardless of which option you select. 

Now, you will no longer receive regular updates from accounts you follow, and instead will see a “filtered” version determined by Facebook’s algorithms. Many Facebook users are unaware of this fact and are perplexed as to why they are no longer receiving regular updates from accounts they follow.

Brain decoder can eavesdrop on your inner voice

Researchers Manipulate Neurons in Worms' Brains and Take Control of Their BehaviorIntellihub.com
Oct 30, 2014

As you read this, your neurons are firing – that brain activity can now be decoded to reveal the silent words in your head

New Scientist

TALKING to yourself used to be a strictly private pastime. That’s no longer the case – researchers have eavesdropped on our internal monologue for the first time. The achievement is a step towards helping people who cannot physically speak communicate with the outside world.

“If you’re reading text in a newspaper or a book, you hear a voice in your own head,” says Brian Pasley at the University of California, Berkeley. “We’re trying to decode the brain activity related to that voice to create a medical prosthesis that can allow someone who is paralysed or locked in to speak.”

When you hear someone speak, sound waves activate sensory neurons in your inner ear. These neurons pass information to areas of the brain where different aspects of the sound are extracted and interpreted as words.
