Recognizing that the dawn of the Post PC Era is upon us,
Microsoft and Canonical (the corporate sponsor behind Ubuntu Linux)
have both determined that they need to make a major move
to challenge Apple's iOS and Google's Android in the mobile device space. After deciding that it's best not to go it alone, Canonical and Microsoft announced today that they are forming a joint venture to develop their next generation of user interface.
The joint venture company will be called Micronical ...

In the industry which has sprung up around the story of the Titanic
author Robin Gardiner has never been afraid to attract controversy,
or answer his critics.
Since his first book "Riddle of the Titanic"
became a best seller in the 1990s he has worked tirelessly on researching firm evidence of his theory that the Titanic
had in fact been switched with her almost identical sister ship Olympic in a conspiracy involving government at the highest level,
and financiers whose names are still at the top of the international business world today.
His second book "The Ship That Never Sank"
attracted similar controversy, and many critics,
but none of whom have been able to convincingly argue
against a man
who will never answer a question with anything other than a fact.
Rather than join the war of words
which has gone on
via the Internet and media sources
he has carried on his research and written this startling third book
- the perfect answer to them all.
It contains startling new evidence
and is already attracting amazing pre-orders from across the world.
In Robin's own words:
"To understand why they sank the Titanic
we have first to know that they didn't"
...Al Qaeda's origins are rooted
in the Soviet-Afghan conflict,
in which the United States armed and trained radical
Muslims to fight the Russians in Afghanistan throughout the 1980's.
Al Qaeda was then used against the U.S.
and thus began the Global
War on Terror.
Now, we have Russian troops training with American troops
in COLORADO in 'joint anti-terror drills'.
The world is upside-down
and the Russians are coming by

Meet Porter. The World's First Driving Dog in a MINI.
Dogs this smart deserve a home.
Every year, the SPCA need to find homes for thousands of dogs
just like Porter -- dogs who have been abused, abandoned, or just forgotten. Our dogs may be a motley bunch, but they're all smart
and they're all lovable. ..
Yes. Yes. Yes. And the sequel? The date? The chase?
The school run with puppies?
The police dog in a ... police car. The Korgi in a Bentley.
The gun dog in a 4x4?
The guide dog for the blind with a human passenger.
Of course you could already stick your dog
in a Google self-drive car and send it to get the newspaper.
Has it gone viral yet?
Has a dog run over a cat yet? Or better still, a person?
A dog has already gone into space.
-- my mind bursts

...Three dogs are being taught to drive...
Monty, a giant schnauzer, Ginny, a whippet cross,
and Porter,an old beardie cross
are learning simple movements
necessary for driving a car, such as moving the gear stick
and holding a steering wheel.
The canine pupils have already put their skills to the test
behind the wheel of a practice car, with a trainer on hand
in the passenger seat to help with the steering.
Animal trainer Mark Vette said “There’s no excuses.
We’ve got to get in there and show that dogs can drive cars.
It’ll be ‘dial-a-dog’ the week after this.”
The dogs are being taught to start a car, accelerate and steer.

were likely to contract a disease that kills a million of them a year.
Previous research has warned of increased risk of esophageal cancer. University of Minnesota School of Public Health professor of epidemiology Mark Pereira recently led a study finding

Today I found out that during the height of the Cold War,
the US military put such an emphasis on a rapid response to an attack
on American soil, that to minimize any foreseeable delay
in launching a nuclear missile,
for nearly two decades they intentionally set the launch codes
at every silo in the US to 8 zeroes...
Oh, and in case you actually did forget the code,
it was handily written down on a checklist handed out to the soldiers.
As Dr. Bruce G. Blair,
who was once a Minuteman launch officer,
Our launch checklist in fact instructed us, the firing crew,
to double-check the locking panel in our underground launch bunker
to ensure that no digits other than zero
had been inadvertently dialed into the panel...

In The Blink Of An Eye
– How Aspartame Can Harm Your Vision
by Janet Hull PhD, CN
Many lawsuits have been won against NutraSweet/Equal®,
ALL have been sequestered from the public under gag order.
In 1986, Shannon Roth hired an attorney,
assembled a battery of medical doctors,
and entered into US Senate offices to share her blinding reaction to aspartame,
found exclusively at that time in NutraSweet/Equal®.
After the meeting adjourned,
one industry attorney referred to her as “Blinky.”
Nice guy …
Shannon became irreversibly blind
in her left eye from aspartame use,
and she wanted justice.
The FDA and US Senate were her final defense,
and when they failed her, she sued The NutraSweet Company.
Why don’t you know about this lawsuit,
and many others filed against aspartame?
Because Shannon’s case (like all the other cases) was settled out of court,
and locked down under a gag order.
Shannon noticed a black spot in the center of her eye
one morning while looking in the mirror.
Four days later, she found herself in total darkness,
and was admitted to the hospital.
She underwent numerous X-rays, a spinal tap,
and a CAT scan.
The diagnosis: retrobulbar optic neuritis
- blindness in just one eye.
The cause? Aspartame.
Shannon consumed large amounts of Equal and diet cola every day.
Shannon used aspartame for two years.
During this time,
she experienced constant headaches,
dizziness, insomnia, malaise, memory loss, and depression.
the Florida resident drank four to five cups
of coffee sweetened with two packs of Equal in each cup.
She drank diet cola throughout the day,
and in the hot Florida summers,
she consumed five to six glasses daily
of an iced tea mix with NutraSweet (aspartame).
” I innocently ingested these drinks thinking
NutraSweet was the best thing since the wheel.
Now, I know it’s poison.”
Dr. Morgan Raiford, MD of the Atlanta Eye Clinic
wrote to Senator Howard Metzenbaum on Shannon’s behalf in 1987.
Dr. Raiford outlined the toxicity of aspartame in respect to her blindness.
He specified to the committee some of the serious side effects from using aspartame,
and recommended that aspartame
not become available to the public.
Raiford observed clinical evidence in Shannon’s eye
comparable to effects he studied in patients
who suffered methyl alcohol (methanol) toxicity.
But, Shannon did not drink alcohol;
just drinks with Equal and diet colas.
Shannon had damage in the central optic nerve fibers,
losing 225,000 of 137,000 optic nerve fibers,
causing her blindness.
At this time, Shannon’s macular area of the eye’s retina and optic nerve fibers
were highly reactive to the toxic methyl alcohol in aspartame
because those fibers and nerve cells required
four to six times more oxygen and nutrition
as the visual pathway’s peripheral nerves.
These “rods and cones” could not go without oxygen
for more than 90 seconds without some vision loss.
How This Relates To Aspartame
According to Dr. Raiford,
aspartame is broken down by the upper portion of the digestive tract,
and methyl alcohol is then absorbed into the blood vessels of that region.
They then travel through the body’s entire vascular system.
This toxicity then effects the human vessel pathway,
ending with optic nerve atrophy,
as well as retinal starvation and vision loss.
The intensity of the toxins from the methyl alcohol has a “spin-off” effect, too,
impairing nerve damage that varies with intensity
to the amount of methyl alcohol the patient absorbs.
Everyone reacts differently to the amount of methyl alcohol it absorbs.
Damage may not be noticed immediately,
or as in the case of Shannon Roth, each eye can be damaged differently.
Shannon lost the vision in her left eye
because of aspartame use.
Dr. Orion Ayer, Jr, MD also wrote the Senate subcommittee on Roth’s behalf, stating,
“The presence of the methanol, even in relatively small quantities,
can cause neurologic damage in susceptible individuals.
Ms. Roth’s particular case may, indeed,
be one of many patients who are sensitive to this additive.”
Shannon Roth went blind from aspartame.
She sued and won, but at great cost
– she could no longer speak about her experience,
she could not publicize her legal victory,
and because of the sequester,
merely a handful of people were aware of this tragic situation.
And, aspartame is still on the open market
eating away at somebody’s retina,
like it ate holes in mine.
It’s time the truth come out - with eyes wide open.

Sweet Poison: How The World’s Most Popular Artificial Sweetener Is Killing Us.
by Janet Starr Hull, PhD, CN
When certified nutritionist Janet Hull became gravely ill, she discovered aspartame poisioning was to blame for her life threatening sickness.
Her investigation revealed disturbing facts about aspartame hidden from the public since the 1970's — including documents contradicting product safety
and the fact that aspartame was originally approved
as a drug — not a food additive.
She tells her story and the experiences of others and unveils startling evidence of a cover-up.
... It is found in over 6000 products such as frozen desserts, gelatins, puddings, fillings, confections, chewing gum, carbonated or powdered soft drinks, tabletop sweeteners or yogurt. Some sugar-free pharmaceuticals like cough drops [& vitamins] will also add aspartame...
More highly toxic compound superweed-killers on the way!
By Sara Jennings in Spilling the Beans Newsletter
October 29, 2014
Monsanto’s new GMO cotton will unleash a triple whammy of toxic herbicides
If you are still reeling from the news of the latest round of approvals for “Agent Orange” corn and soy,
please sit down.
More hopped up toxic combinations are on the way. Monsanto has a new “triple stack” GMO cotton up for deregulation with tolerance to dicamba, glyphosate, and glufosinate herbicides.
They call it another “tool” for fighting superweeds.
These glyphosate-resistant weeds have more than doubled since 2009 and are currently spread over 70 million acres.
Dicamba is a strong herbicide that has been associated with a number of health and environmental effects
including reproductive effects, neurotoxicity, kidney/liver damage, not to mention that dicamba, like 2,4-D,
is toxic to fish, toxic to birds, and harmful to pets.
People are becoming increasingly alarmed
about the escalation to greater and greater amounts of toxic chemicals, and what appears to be an extraordinary insensitivity to public opinion.
Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR), Rep. Chellie Pingree (D-Maine), and other members of Congress are speaking up. “Right now we are witnessing agribusiness
attempt to wield its powerful influence over federal regulators.
They want EPA and USDA to rubberstamp another set of genetically engineered crops rather than listen to the scientific community,” says Rep. Peter DeFazio, (D-Oregon).
EPA Approves Dow’s new Super Toxic Superweed Cocktail over Protests from 50 Federal Lawmakers
Oct 15 – In spite of an outpouring of public concern including a strongly worded letter signed by 50 members of Congress, the Environmental Protection Agency
gave final approval to Dow Agrosciences’ new Enlist Duo herbicide, a double whammy combination of glyphosate plus 2,4-D aimed at knocking down the onslaught of superweeds that have grown resistant to glyphosate alone, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup.
The approvals of Dow’s “Agent Orange” crop system with resistance to 2,4,-D escalates the “war” on superweeds to a new level of chemical warfare.
50 congressional members – led by Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Oregon, and Chellie Pingree, D-Maine – expressed a chilling concern:
“We are also concerned that EPA failed to thoroughly examine all of the significant health and environmental risks of 2,4-D including
that of inhalation and aggregate exposure;
the risks of 2,4-D exposure to threatened
and endangered species; and the risks posed by shifts in use patterns of 2,4-D as a result of the GE cropping systems.
Most alarming is EPA’s failure to apply the additional safety factor of 10x,
as mandated under the Food Quality Protection Act, to protect children,
who are especially susceptible to harm from pesticide exposure.
The 10-fold safety factor is required by law to safeguard against
the potential health risks for young children and infants
that would result from the widespread use of 2,4-D on GE crops.”
The 10-fold safety factor refers specifically to cumulative risk assessments
which may be required to take into account potential pre- and postnatal exposure.
Detailed information is available from the EPA Office of Pesticide Programs.
Reach out to these legislators if you know them and thank them, or send a letter to your representative if not a part of this group and urge their further investigation.
