Quote: Innsbruck political scientist Claudia von Werlhof has accused the USA of being behind the Haitian earthquake in January, it emerged today (Tues). Werlhof said that machines at a military research centre in Alaska used to detect deposits of crude oil by causing artificial earthquakes had intentionally been set off to cause the Haitian earthquake and enable the USA to send 10,000 soldiers into the country. Ferdinand Karlhofer, the head of the Innsbruck Political Science Institute where von Werlhof works, has slammed her comments. He said such conspiracy theory had no scientific basis and her claim would damage the reputation of the Institute abroad.
Quote: With each passing news cycle, the scandal of the sexual and physical abuse of children by Catholic clergy seems to be moving closer to the Vatican. What was once dismissed by Vatican officials -- including then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now known as Pope Benedict XVI -- as a relatively minor problem in the United States that was being blown out of proportion by an anti-Catholic American media, the crisis has instead spread inexorably across Europe in recent weeks and now threatens to reach as far as the pope himself. A confession by the pope's older brother, Father Georg Ratzinger, that he himself slapped boys in the world-famous Bavarian church choir he directed for 30 years was the latest shocker in a series of reports about abuse decades ago in the German church. ..
Sitat: – Jeg tror det var da jeg holdt på å gå ned for telling. Selv om jeg har jobbet med torturofre i 30 år og tror at jeg tåler det, så gjør jeg ikke det, altså. Psykolog og førsteamanuensis Nora Sveaass rister på hodet og pusser nesen. Under en fem dagers festival i Oslo har hun sett filmer om menneskerettsbrudd verden over. Om militærdiktaturet i Burma, folkemordet i Rwanda og overgrepene i Kenya. Siden har hun vært på kanten av en influensa. – Når jeg har torturofre i terapi, møter jeg mennesker som tross alt har klart seg og som jeg også kan le sammen med. Da er det verre å se menneskerettsbrudd på et lerret uten å kunne gjøre noe med det, sier hun. ..

Sitat: Hevder direktivet strider mot den europeiske menneskrettighets-konvensjonen. Datatilsynet vil på det sterkeste advare mot at EUs datalagringsdirektiv implementeres i norsk rett, melder Computerworld . Ifølge Computerworld innebærer direktivet en innsamling og lagring av trafikkdata: Hvem som kommuniserer med hvem, hvordan og når og en automatisk lagring av dette i minst seks måneder – også av for eksempel maskin-til-maskin-trafikk, utstyr som automatisk kan koble seg til Internett, kanskje mange ganger i løpet av et døgn. - Dette innebærer at det ikke bare skal registreres enkelte øyeblikk av våre liv, men at registreringen nærmest blir kontinuerlig, påpeker Datatilsynet i sin høringsuttalelse . ..
Fast food, frighteningly slow decay: Mother keeps McDonald's Happy Meal for a whole year... and it STILL hasn't gone off Quote: Glancing at the two McDonald's Happy Meals pictured here, you may feel they look pretty much identical. Astonishingly, however, this is the same meal, photographed 12 months apart. Where any other food might be a mouldy, decomposing mess after a year, the McDonald's meal shows few signs of going off apart from the beef patty shrivelling and the stale burger bun cracking. Proof, says the American nutritionist who took these photographs, that it contains so many preservatives that it is bad for the children it is aimed at. ..
Sitat: En ny gren av hjerneforskningen finstuderer tankeverdenen vår. Forskerne vil se hva du tenker og kunne forutsi hva du velger. I feil hender kan den nye kunnskapen misbrukes. I mange år har leger og nevrologer brukt hjerneskanninger til å undersøke hjernens sykdommer og kartlegge hjernens forskjellige sentre. Men en ny gren av hjerneforskningen nøyer seg ikke med feilfinning og funksjonell analyse. Den forsøker også å forutsi valgene våre og registrere tankene våre, skriver forskning.no. Dermed beveger hjerneforskningen seg langs en vei som kan være både vanskelig og problematisk. – Det åpner for muligheten for at bedrifter kan manipulere forbrukerne uhyre effektivt, sier Thomas Zoëga Ramsøy, som er ph.d. og hjerneforsker ved Decision Neuroscience Research Group på CBS og Hvidovre Hospital. Hjerneskanninger identifiserer tanker ..
Quote: The Pope's letter is "a study in the art of lying" said singer Sinead O'Connor last night, in response to the Pope's letter. "Its even worse than that -- it starts lying from the very first sentence when it says that what happened in the Irish church is 'a matter of great concern for us'. "If it was a matter of such concern, why has it taken 23 years for this to happen? "The Pope is selling the Irish bishops down the tubes -- it is claiming that what happened in Ireland was the fault of the Irish bishops, not the Vatican. But they were acting on the explicit orders of the Vatican. ..
Quote: (NaturalNews) It seems that the medical establishment, along with the pharmaceutical industry, may have a new excuse to put a LOT more people on blood pressure medications. Of course, you can imagine the billions of profit dollars this could generate; so many pharmaceutical companies may be jumping for joy at this news. What is the news? Well, new research is suggesting that people with consistently high blood pressure aren't the only ones that need to be on medications. The findings are showing that people with variable blood pressure readings may need to be on them as well, because of a substantial risk of stroke. ..
Quote: last night's episode of RUMOR MILL RADIO with forensic economists McConnell & Hawkins was either one of the most important investigative broadcasts on the planet this decade or the most ham-fisted libel opportunity ever presented to the named parties. "You may find it beyond credibility, .... but it is a crime in America to breath out CO2 at 40,000 ppm because the value that has been set by the FAA with the agreement of 'Alpha' in the passenger cabin of a plane is 5000ppm, and it was 30,000ppm with the Clinton Administration ... but with Nancy Pelosi it was reduced to 5000ppm...!" "Through Airpatrol Hack I can monitor the level of CO2 in any plane and I can artificially raise or lower the allowable limit and I can switch that plane from being friendly to being hostile, and blow it up, and I can take bets on it through the international insurance market in London, so yesterday there was a raid on the major hedge funds in London ....
