They help us find directions to new restaurants, offer information about the places we want to visit, and can instantly answer any question about whatever inquiry fills the mind.

By Ben Swann on RTFor-profit prisons have created a “neo-slavery” in the US, according to award-winning journalist Chris Hedges. Inmates work eight hours per day for major corporations such as Chevron, Motorola, Nordstrom’s and Target, yet only have the possibility of making up $1.25 an hour. In addition, companies that provide services like phone calls overcharge prisoners on even the most basic services, making hundreds of millions in profits annually. RT’s Ben Swann speaks to Hedges, [...]

Michael SnyderActivist Post If only George Orwell could see us today. When he wrote 1984 back in 1948, he probably never imagined that the “totalitarian, bureaucratic world” that he imagined would ever actually become a reality. But that is precisely what is happening.We live at a time when the government monitors billions of our phone calls and emails and hardly anyone gets upset about it. We live at a time when corporations systematically collect our voiceprints and ou [...]

Carridwen Brennan, a Wiccan, told the Denver Post that pagans are a varied group and that Wiccans, the largest group of Pagans, practice a form of nature worship carried on by witches after Europe converted to Christianity.

It appears after too much use on humans, and even more so with farm animals in factory farming, that antibiotics are becoming useless. Is this a curse or a blessing?
Margaret Riley, Ph.D professor of biology at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst considers taking a course of antibiotics analogous to ingesting a hydrogen bomb that indiscriminately kills everything in its path.
Riley explains that antibiotics kill not only the bad and the ugly (bacteria), but also the good. They are not smart [...]
There are several types of sick people in this world—those that go straight to their doctor when they aren’t feeling well, those who may try some vitamin C and zinc but go to their doctor when those don’t do the trick, and those who have their own herbal arsenal at home—who know which herb or food to take for nearly any ailment. As you cross from one group to the next, there is a lot to learn about natural health. And when you move from the supplement crew to the herbalist gang, you’ll [...]

The United States is woefully unprepared for an Ebola outbreak. If a pandemic were to erupt, the very limited number of hospital labs and isolation units that we currently have would be rapidly overwhelmed. Yes, we may be able to provide "state of the art care" for a handful of people, but if thousands (or millions) of Americans get the virus you can forget about it. Our health industry is already stretched incredibly thin, and we simply do not have the resources to handle a tsunami of hig [...]

While we noted last week the death of the Japanese bond market as government intervention has killed the largest bond market in the world; it is now becoming increasingly clear that the dearth of trading volumes is not only spreading to equity markets but also to all major global markets as investors rotate to derivatives in order to find any liquidity.

I know that sounds absolutely insane, but this is what America is turning into. Commu [...]
