600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb

How Whole Turmeric Heals The Damaged Brain
Long considered impossible to accomplish, new research reveals how a simple spice might contribute to the regeneration of the damaged brain.
Turmeric is hands down one of the, if not the, most versatile healing spice in the world with over 600 experimentally confirmed health benefits, and an ancient history filled with deep reverence for its seemingly compassionate power to alleviate human suffering.
But, most of the focus over the past decade has been centered on only one of its many hundreds of phytocompounds: namely, the primary polyphenol in turmeric known as curcumin which gives the spice its richly golden hue.  This curcumin-centric focus has lead to the development of some very good products, such as phospholipid bound curcumin concentrate (e.g. Meriva, BCM-95) which greatly helps to increase the absorption and bio-activity of curcumin. But, curcumin isolates are only capable of conferring a part of turmeric’s therapeutic power – and therein lies the limitation and hubris of the dominant ‘isolate the active ingredient’ model.

600 Reasons Turmeric May Be The World’s Most Important Herb
Some of the most amazing demonstrated properties include:
Destroying Multi-Drug Resistant Cancer
Destroying Cancer Stem Cells (arguably, the root of all cancer)
Protecting Against Radiation-Induced Damage
Reducing Unhealthy Levels of Inflammation
Protecting Against Heavy Metal Toxicity
Preventing and Reversing Alzheimer’s Disease Associated Pathologies
Again, what is so amazing is not that turmeric may have value in dozens of health conditions simultaneously, or that it may improve conditions that are completely resistant to conventional treatment, but that there are over six hundred additional health conditions it may also be valuable in preventing and/or treating. Consider also the fact that turmeric grows freely on the Earth, and you will understand why its very existence threatens billions of dollars in pharmaceutical industry revenue.

Jesse Ventura to Host Daily Internet Show Blasting American ‘Hypocrisy’ (VIDEO)

Jesse Ventura to Host Daily Internet Show Blasting American ‘Hypocrisy’ (VIDEO)

Off the Grid’ on Ora TV will feature ex-wrestler and former pol opining on current events and U.S. politics

Jesse Ventura is set to host “Off the Grid,” a daily talkshow on Internet-video site Ora TV that will feature the ex-wrestler, former Minnesota governor and libertarian rabble-rouser sounding off on a range of current events.

The show, to debut in January, will cover topics ranging from Obamacare to the NSA spying scandal — focusing, Ventura said, on the hypocrisy of America’s political leaders.

“I have a difficult time being able to express my independent viewpoints about our country,” said Ventura, whose real name is James Janos. “What we have with Ora is a means to express myself uninhibited. I can say what I feel without censorship.”

Ora TV’s major investor is América Móvil, the Latin American wireless service provider majority owned by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim. Ventura hooked up with the New York-based webcaster after he appeared on Larry King’s “Politicking” talkshow, which also is produced by Ora TV.

“Larry and I got discussing, and he said, ‘They’ll give you the freedom to do what you want,’” Ventura said.

In a dollop of marketing hype, Ventura said “Off the Grid” will be produced at “undisclosed locations” outside the United States, purportedly to avoid the threat of government censorship. “This will be like Radio Free Europe, broadcasting propaganda over the Iron Curtain,” he said. “This will be Internet Free America.”

“Off the Grid” is tentatively scheduled to go live Jan. 20, 2014. The show will tape two or three days per week and run four to five episodes weekly on Ora.TV, with additional segments during the elections. Allison Glader and Jason Rovou are executive producers.

Ventura, 62, said the Internet broadcasting format will free him from the interference he’s encountered in the TV biz. In 2003, after leaving the Minnesota governor’s office, he signed a three-year contract with MSNBC — but, he claimed, “unfortunately they didn’t let anyone on the air who disagreed with the Iraq war. I got paid for three years and I did nothing.”

Thousands protest press credibility in march against mainstream media

Thousands protest press credibility in march against mainstream media

Thousands of people in the UK and US united in their rejection of mainstream media in a mass protest. Protesters targeted the headquarters of media giants like Fox News, the BBC and NBS, decrying their narrow coverage of world affairs.

  The March Against Mainstream Media (MAMM) organized the  international protest via social media and challenged the  established media to cover it.  

  In a statement posted on the MAMM website, the organization said  big media outlets had two options: “report on the fact that  thousands of people are currently protesting outside of their  buildings because they are keeping important news from the  public’s eyes,” or ignore them.  

Secret Globalist Treaty Threatens Internet Freedom

Secret Globalist Treaty Threatens Internet Freedom

Obama poised to fast-track secret agreement

c1Wikileaks has released a 95 page, 30,000 word document spelling out details on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). The secret globalist agreement will have a significant effect on a wide range of issues including internet freedom, medicine, patents, and civil liberties. The cabal will meet in Salt Lake, Utah, between November 19 and 24.

The draft text for the TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter spells out provisions for implementing a transnational “enforcement regime” designed to supplant national laws and sovereignty with a globalist construct. The TPP is by far the largest and most oppressive economic treaty devised thus far. It will have an impact on a staggering 40 percent of worldwide GDP. The TPP is the forerunner to the equally secret US-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). Both treaties combined will cover 60 percent of world GDP and exclude China.

Enforcement will be accomplished by “supranational litigation tribunals to which sovereign national courts are expected to defer.” According to the document, the globalist courts can conduct hearings with secret evidence.

In addition, aspects of the treaty resemble SOPA and ACTA treaties with draconian surveillance mechanisms. In early 2013, thousands of websites “went black” to show solidarity in opposition to SOPA, or the Stop Online Piracy Act, legislation that seriously threatened the functionality of the internet. “SOPA was an attempt to put the power of information back in the hands of an elite few who are rapidly losing the ability to control what the masses are reading, hearing and seeing,” Mac Slavo wrote in January, 2012.

“Since the beginning of the TPP negotiations, the process of drafting and negotiating the treaty’s chapters has been shrouded in an unprecedented level of secrecy,” Wikileaks notes in a statement on the release of the TPP draft. “Access to drafts of the TPP chapters is shielded from the general public. Members of the US Congress are only able to view selected portions of treaty-related documents in highly restrictive conditions and under strict supervision. It has been previously revealed that only three individuals in each TPP nation have access to the full text of the agreement, while 600 ’trade advisers’ – lobbyists guarding the interests of large US corporations such as Chevron, Halliburton, Monsanto and Walmart – are granted privileged access to crucial sections of the treaty text.”

French Government report on abortion aims to silence pro-life internet presence

French Government report on abortion aims to silence pro-life internet presence

A report on abortion prepared for the French Government by the High Council for Equality Between Women and Men claims abortion rights are being threatened by the existence of pro-life information and websites available online. The report even accuses famed search engine Google and free online encyclopaedia Wikipedia of unjustly favouring pro-life websites — merely by making these websites available. This report is a clear and straight attack on freedom of expression and information. It is an attempt to explore ways to silence any pro-life voices that oppose the already excessive abortion agenda.

 

The basis of these allegations is unclear. In fact, according to the 36-pages report (officially titled “Rapport relatif à l’accès à l’IVG”), pro-abortion websites are more frequently visited than pro-life websites: as of September 2013, the most visited abortion-related website accessed via Google is a “pro-choice” website of the French Government. In fact, the report indicates that of the top 10 most visited websites, as examined by the High Council, five are pro-abortion and two are pro-life. The remaining three websites are merely publicly-edited websites (such as Wikipedia) or one of several online forums. 

Nevertheless, the fact that some pro-life websites are being accessed through Google, and that pro-life information is being made available at Wikipedia, has led the Government’s High Council for Equality Between Women and Men to conclude that such online organizations are unfairly supporting a pro-life agenda.

Although the report also acknowledges that no study exists demonstrating any link between the information available on the internet and the number of abortions performed, the High Council warns of the threat posed by the easy availability of pro-life information on the internet.

BitTorrent ethics: Punishing piracy or criminalizing sharing?

BitTorrent ethics: Punishing piracy or criminalizing sharing?

If you live in a densely populated modern city, there is a strong chance that wireless network transmissions that are in breach of copyright law could be around you at this very moment.

  The decentralized network architecture known as peer-to-peer  (P2P) communications allows files of all kinds to be shared over  the internet with other users without monetary exchange, and  millions utilize this technology on daily basis. To some, this  kind of exchange represents a new paradigm shift in sharing arts  and culture that has the potential to empower new content  producers who would have otherwise been consumers, while giving  rise to a new decentralized economic model. To those who have a  stake in maintaining the pre-eminence of copyright laws over the  means of distribution, the millions who utilize these new habits  of consumption are likened to renegade sea-bandits in arms –   pirates – and they need to be stopped.  

  Most file-sharing is utilized through BitTorrent, and involves a  host website that supports an index of .torrent files that can be  downloaded in separate client applications. The content itself is  not stored on a single centralized hard drive, but rests on the  individual hard drives of millions of users who share their files  through a P2P network, making file-sharing very difficult to  regulate. The kinds of files that are shared range from films and  music to software and e-books. All of it is done without monetary  exchange, just as one would share the same kind of content with a  friend. Much like the printing press, cassette recorders, VCRs,  cable television, mp3 players and the like, the film studios of  Hollywood and the recording industry view such innovations as an  existential threat to their industries – and file-sharing has  become the present day object of a witch-hunt led by the Motion  Picture Association of America (MPAA) and its counterpart, the  Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).  

  Internet 2.0

  Before the digital age, information was exchanged through bulky  bundles of paper and plastic discs. The internet was originally  developed as a means to circumvent these physical limitations by  creating a decentralized network that would allow users to  connect to each other irrespective of their physical location.  From the perspective of the file-sharer, the internet is  functioning exactly as it was intended to. For the intellectual  property industries that are bent on punishing offenders of  copyright law (people who exchange copyrighted files), the  internet cannot be allowed to exist as it does now. As a result  of massive lobbying efforts, trends are emerging among lawmakers  to develop far-reaching regulations to govern the internet and  inalterably change the way it operates. The bottom line is that  industries and the corporations that control them want to pass  regulation to give the private sector sweeping central authority  over the internet and its content under the guise of protecting  intellectual property rights, while vastly expanding the duration  of existing copyrights.

  The unregulated internet is arguably the most representative and  democratic feature of industrial societies, and the ideology of   ‘copyright fundamentalism’ threatens this medium of exchange.  Because file-sharing is done through private means and  decentralized networks, copyright law cannot be enforced without  violating the privacy of individual users through mass  surveillance that would monitor sharing habits. What could the  regulated Internet 2.0 look like? Based on the fine print of  bills that have failed to become law, a few ideas come to mind.  Websites and blogs can be taken down without court order over the  most marginal cases of copyright infringement; file-sharers would  have their bandwidth cut for using P2P and be subject to pay  steep fines; invasive hard drive searches by police and  immigration officials at airports, and more. The end-game for  corporate lobbyists is to persuade governments to deregulate and  liberalize markets and economic space while regulating  communication mediums like the internet to protect the  deregulation of the economic space that protects corporate  monopoly profits. It’s liberty for the markets. Not for you.

NSA harvesting hundreds of millions of personal email contact lists – report

NSA harvesting hundreds of millions of personal email contact lists – report

The National Security Agency is logging hundreds of millions of email and instant messaging contacts belonging to Americans and others around the world, according to a report based on documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The data harvesting program, first reported by The Washington  Post Monday, collects address books from email and instant  messaging service in an apparent attempt to map social circles  across the globe. Online communication services frequently expose  an individual’s contact list when that person signs onto their  account, sends a message, or connects a remote device – such as a  cell phone – to a computer.

An internal NSA PowerPoint presentation indicated that the NSA’s  Special Source Operations collected 444,743 email lists from  Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from  Gmail, and another 22,881 from other services. The documents note  that those numbers show what the NSA collects in one day, meaning  the intelligence agency could collect more than 250 million lists  each year.

The NSA is capable of collecting approximately 500,000 so-called  buddy lists from live-chat services and the “in-box”   displays from web-based email services, according to the Post.

Two NSA sources told the Post the intelligence agency uses the  data to identify international connections and then find smaller,  more nefarious connections between suspected criminals. The  collection relies on secret deals with foreign telecommunication  companies, with NSA agents monitoring internet traffic outside  the US.

The sources refused to estimate how many Americans are snared in  the dragnet but did admit it could number in the tens of  millions. An unnamed official was careful to mention the  collection comes from “all over the world,” and “None  of those are on US territory.”

Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of  National Intelligence, said the NSA “is focused on discovering  and developing intelligence about valid foreign intelligence  targets like terrorists, human traffickers and drug smugglers. We  are not interested in personal information about ordinary  Americans.”
