The security cabinet decided Sunday to respond to the request of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and reduce the supply of electricity to the Gaza… read more
As a growing number of individual states in the U.S. stand up to the federal government on marijuana prohibition, Mexico legalized medical marijuana nationwide on Monday.
Mexican President Enrique PeñaNieto issued a decree, following the bill’s overwhelming approval from Mexico’s Senate in December, with a vote of 98-7, and from Mexico’s Lower House of Congress in April, with a vote of 374-7 vote.
The ruling eliminates the prohibition and criminalization of acts related to the medicinal use of marijuana and its scientific research, and those relating to the production and distribution of the plant for these purposes.
The decree stated that the nation’s Ministry of Health would be in charge of “public policies regulating the medicinal use of pharmacological derivatives of cannabis sativa, indica and Americana or marijuana, including tetrahydrocannabinol, its isomers and stereochemical variants, as well as how to regulate the research and national production of them.”
Execution by Firing Squad: The Militarized Police State Opens Fire
By John W. Whitehead June 19, 2017
“It is often the case that police shootings, incidents where law enforcement officers pull the trigger on civilians, are left out of the conversation on gun violence. But a police officer shooting a civilian counts as gun violence. Every time an officer uses a gun against an innocent or an unarmed person contributes to the culture of gun violence in this country.”—Journalist Celisa Calacal
Legally owning a gun in America could get you killed by a government agent.
Qatar opened the Middle East’s first centre for clearing transactions in the Chinese yuan on Tuesday, saying it would boost trade and investment between China and Gulf Arab economies.
“The launch of the region’s first renminbi clearing center in Doha creates the necessary platform to realise the full potential of Qatar and the region’s trade relationship with China,” Qatar’s central bank governor Sheikh Abdullah bin Saud al-Thani said at a ceremony.
“It will facilitate greater cross-border renminbi investment and financing business, and promote greater trade and economic links between China and the region, paving the way for better financial cooperation and enhancing the pre-eminence of Qatar as a financial hub in MENA (Middle East and North Africa).”
Ethereum Blockchain Used By United Nations For Sending Aid to Syria
United Nations’ World Food Program recently used the Ethereum Blockchain technology to send, record and verify aid to 10,000 Syrian refugees.
JUNE 18, 2017 By Joshua Althauser
The United Nations World Food Programme uses the Ethereum Blockchain to transfer vouchers based on cryptocurrencies to refugees in Syria. The platform was able to transfer cryptocurrency vouchers to a total of 10,000 people. It was done through another platform that was created by Parity Technologies.
Parity Technologies is a startup company led by Ethereum co-founder Gavin Wood.
“Funds that were sent to the refugees were specifically used for buying food. With the success of this project, the World Food Programme (WFP) plans to extend the project even further to cover 100,000 people in Jordan by late 2018.”
With this, the UN is planning more Blockchain technology-related projects that can help them move aid to disaster-stricken countries even faster.
The Money Laundering Act conceptually declares digital crytpo-currency mining, usage, and holding an act of money laundering and counterfeiting, particularly in regards to Federal Reserve Notes maintaining their fictitious Valueless Perception of Worth. Requiring the registration of all digital currency holdings and transactions in the U.S. is an attempt to brazenly legalize (fictionalize) the all digital currency networks under the “legal jurisdiction” of a criminal government. After the United States succeeds, all UN Member Nations interested in continued debt slavery could act to implement such measures, in kind. It is a power grab of the Commons by the United States Corporation over a Constitutionally First Amendment Protected Freedom of Speech Medium (digital currencies) and non-legal trade that governmental corporations cannot control nor profit from (with debt mechanisms).
The “Terrorist Financing” label being used by US Senators was to undermine all legitimate commentary on the topic. Indeed, the Act itself is an act of terrorism upon the Digital Commons and Digital Rights. It is a usurpation of value, rights, and property. The Act violates legal precedence in converting a basic digital right into a “license”, regardless of fees, to outright ban digital currencies. The Money Laundering Act only points out the laundering of worth via valueless debt by the Federal Reserve and seems to merely be an attempt to protect the unlawful DEBT-AS-MONEY Racketeering of Central Bankers.
Canadian Rights researcher Russell Porisky has conducted extensive studies into common law versus Admiralty law, and its attendant natural persons versus legal fictions. Porisky provides us with the answer. In book one of his five part study series on, Canadian Rights and Freedoms, Mr. Porisky – who describes himself as a “natural person” brings forth definitions from two credible sources…
Gage Canadian Dictionary, 1983, Sec. 4 defines Capitalize adj. as… “To take advantage of – To use to ones own advantage.”
Blacks Law Dictionary – Revised Fourth Edition, 1968, provides a more comprehensive definition as follows …
Capitis Diminutio (meaning the diminishing of status through the use of capitalization) – In Roman [Catholic Vatican City, global] law. A diminishing or abridgment of personality; a loss or curtailment of a man’s status or aggregate of legal attributes and qualifications.
Capitis Diminutio Maxima (meaning a maximum loss of status through the use of capitalization, e.g. JOHN DOE or DOE JOHN) – The highest or most comprehensive loss of status. This occurred when a man’s condition was changed from one of freedom to one of bondage, when he became a slave. It swept away with it all rights of citizenship and all family rights.
Capitis Diminutio Media (meaning a medium loss of status through the use of capitalization, e.g. John DOE) – A lessor or medium loss of status. This occurred where a man loses his rights of citizenship, but without losing his liberty. It carried away also the family rights.
Capitis Diminutio Minima (meaning a minimum loss of status through the use of capitalization, e.g. John Doe) – The lowest or least comprehensive degree of loss of status. This occurred where a man’s family relations alone were changed. It happened upon the arrogation [pride] of a person who had been his own master, (sui juris,) [of his own right, not under any legal disability] or upon the emancipation of one who had been under the patria potestas. [Parental authority] It left the rights of liberty and citizenship unaltered. See Inst. 1, 16, pr.; 1, 2, 3; Dig. 4, 5, 11; Mackeld. Rom.Law, 144.
Capite. – Lat. By the head
Diminutio. – Lat. In civil law. Diminution; a taking away; loss or depravation.
The prevailing view that non-ionizing cell phone radiation can not cause DNA damage was first challenged academically with a theory Penn State published titled, DNA and the Microwave Effect, January 20, 2001. New studies on (ROS) Oxygen Species Production and RF, proves Penn State theory correct and cell phone radiation does cause DNA damage in two-stage process.
According to RF Safe, it has now been proven that human toxicity to microwave radiation depends not only on power, but frequency as well. High-frequency ionizing radiation, such as gamma or X-rays, can damage DNA molecules directly, and low-frequency radiation such as cell phone radio waves, classified as non-ionizing were first recognized as having the potential of a Microwave effect (second stage DNA damage) in a paper published January 20, 2001 Penn State University, DNA And The Microwave Effect
Because connected Chatbots can use their AI programs to talk to each other, they are developing their own languages, unknown to their designers. What are they saying? Whatdto they mean? What is their intent? Technocrats are opening up Pandora’s Box with technology that they create but do not understand. ⁃ TN Editor
When Facebook designed chatbots to negotiate with one another, the bots made up their own way of communicating.
A buried line in a new Facebook report about chatbots’ conversations with one another offers a remarkable glimpse at the future of language.
In the report, researchers at the Facebook Artificial Intelligence Research lab describe using machine learning to train their “dialog agents” to negotiate. (And it turns out bots are actually quite good at dealmaking.) At one point, the researchers write, they had to tweak one of their models because otherwise the bot-to-bot conversation “led to divergence from human language as the agents developed their own language for negotiating.” They had to use what’s called a fixed supervised model instead.
Under no circumstances should a US Navy vessel possibly be damaged by a container ship at sea. Multiple systems exist to prevent this. Even CNN is noticing how little we know about the catastrophe that took the lives of seven sailors and almost caused a powerful warship to founder.
The USS Fitzgerald, an anti-ballistic missile destroyer that was part of the USS Ronald Reagan carrier strike group, will no longer be ready to defend the carrier and other ships from missile attacks launched from North Korea, should push come to shove in the current confrontation with the rogue regime on the threshold of the capability to attack New York, Los Angeles, and our power grid with nuclear missiles. This is an incident that could affect the outcome of a nuclear confrontation of historic moment.
The important point is that what this indicates is an indefinable consciousness that permeates all things. Basically they are saying God is real. They can’t and never will be able to say what that is and how it works, with any precision, because God in incomprehensible and beyond the capacity of the human mind to define, ever. To see God you must be God. That, of course, will not sit well with the empiricists. I’m just pleased that they are finding themselves on the brink of discoveries they never wanted to encounter. See… they don’t have any choice in the matter… sooner or later you wind up in the right ballpark, even if you never understand the principles of the game. It’s a lot like a dog chasing his tail, or a car, eventually he catches one or the other and has no idea what to do with it.
Some of the world’s most renowned scientists are questioning whether the cosmos has an inner life similar to our own.
Jun.16.2017 / 11:32 AM ET
For centuries, modern science has been shrinking the gap between humans and the rest of the universe, from Isaac Newton showing that one set of laws applies equally to falling apples and orbiting moons to Carl Sagan intoning that “we are made of star stuff” — that the atoms of our bodies were literally forged in the nuclear furnaces of other stars.
Even in that context, Gregory Matloff’s ideas are shocking. The veteran physicist at New York City College of Technology recently published a paper arguing that humans may be like the rest of the universe in substance and in spirit. A “proto-consciousness field” could extend through all of space, he argues. Stars may be thinking entities that deliberately control their paths. Put more bluntly, the entire cosmos may be self-aware.
