VIDEO: "The Terrifying Russian Sleep Experiment" Russian researchers in the late 1940s kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn’t kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and 5 inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month.

The test subjects were political prisoners deemed enemies of the state during World War II. Everything was fine for the first five days; the subjects hardly complained having been promised (falsely) that they would be freed if they submitted to the test and did not sleep for 30 days. After nine days the first of them started screaming. So did the whispering to the microphones. After 3 more days passed. The subject smiled.

By: SCGNEWS There is something very, very important that the corporate media and public health officials are not telling you regarding the Ebola outbreak in west Africa. The information I’m about to present here is frightening. There’s really no way around that. However, I request that you do your very best to maintain a calm state of mind.

Right now in West Africa the worst Ebola outbreak in history is in full swing and is jumping borders at an alarming rate. To make matters worse, there is something very, very important that the corporate media and public health officials are not telling you regarding this crisis. You’ll notice if you read virtually any mainstream article on the topic that they make a point of insisting that Ebola is only transferred by physical contact with bodily fluids. A study conducted in 2012 showed that Ebola was able to travel between pigs and monkeys that were in separate cages and were never placed in direct contact. Translation: Ebola IS an airborne virus. 1. Showing no mercy, Amash slams his defeated opponent during victory speech. Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) held on to his 3rd congressional district seat Tuesday night, defeating his establishment challenger Brian Ellis 57-43.

In his victory speech, Amash minced no words about his Republican primary opponent. Ellis, after conducting a nasty smear campaign — Amash highlighted the word nasty — called his opponent to concede. Amash wasn’t having it: To Brian Ellis, you owe my family and this community an apology — for your disgusting, despicable smear campaign.You had the audacity to try to call me today, after running a campaign that was called the nastiest in the country. I ran for office to stop people like you — to stop people who were more interested in themselves than in doing what’s best for their district. Amash would add that Ellis is “what’s wrong with politics,” that “people like him … they lie, they smear, they distort, and then they think everything’s fine afterwards — and it’s not fine.” Amash was highly offended. Nunes and fellow Ellis supporter Rep.

You know you're part of the service industry when you can identify with this list. 1. Your "weekend" is actually mid-week and you never know the date. 2.

Well I’m in the working world again. I’ve found myself a well-paying gig in the engineering industry, and life finally feels like it’s returning to normal after my nine months of traveling. Because I had been living quite a different lifestyle while I was away, this sudden transition to 9-to-5 existence has exposed something about it that I overlooked before. Since the moment I was offered the job, I’ve been markedly more careless with my money. Not stupid, just a little quick to pull out my wallet. As a small example, I’m buying expensive coffees again, even though they aren’t nearly as good as New Zealand’s exceptional flat whites, and I don’t get to savor the experience of drinking them on a sunny café patio. When I was away these purchases were less off-handed, and I enjoyed them more. I’m not talking about big, extravagant purchases. In hindsight I think I’ve always done this when I’ve been well-employed — spending happily during the “flush times.”

A Culture of Unnecessaries. Former decorated cop says abolish all police. Americans have been brainwashed into believing cars will crash and citizens will murder each other if there were no police presence. This simply is not true. People do not, not kill people because cops are present. In other words, you are not, not being raped at this moment simply because police are on every corner…In fact, police catch less than 1 percent of all violent crimes in the act. Unlike the U.S., where it’s common to spot twenty five police in a one hundred mile trip, there are thousands of populated areas abroad that have no police presence yet they experience less crime and fewer traffic accidents. I’ve personally lived in a few of these places. The U.S.A. has the largest prison population in the history of mankind.

Communist China has ONE BILLION more in population but the U.S. has more prisoners. U.S. police have killed over 5000 civilians since 9/11 which means an American citizen is 8 times more likely to be killed by an American cop than a terrorist. About The Author.

Suppressed Scientific Evidence Proves Free Energy Source Dating Back 25,000 Years. A monumental discovery with four years of comprehensive Geo-archaeological research has failed to reach mainstream audiences for some reason. The most active pyramid site in the world dating the pyramid complex back 25,000 years has also released scientific evidence supporting the theory that the pyramids were used as an energy source.

The recent study reveals energy beams transmitting electromagnetic signals unexplainable by our science in what is now documented as the largest Pyramid complex in the world. Overwhelming evidence, supported by scientific research from all over the archaeological community proves that our recorded history is wrong concerning turn changes religion, science and academics. Dr. Osmanagich has investigated pyramids all over the world, however his recent discovery of the Bosnian pyramids in Visoko, are nothing more than remarkable. What may be more remarkable is how he has been attacked in the media, by scientists and researchers for his incredible find. PRWeb. Alex Jones Show - KONY 2012: Arrest Angelina Jolie For War Crimes! For Millennials, patriotism doesn’t mean compliance. “Patriotism is supporting your country all the time, and your government when it deserves it.” – Mark Twain What do President Teddy Roosevelt, author Mark Twain and theologian G.K.

Chesterton have in common? Each understood what patriotism is—and, more importantly, what it isn’t. Each also understood it in a way that is, unfortunately all too rare today. Recent polling research has revealed not only that the Millennial generation is more politically independent than our elders, but also that we’re less patriotic… or at least, that’s how the poll results are presented, with dire headlines like, “A generational gap in American patriotism.” But is this actually true? It depends on what you mean by patriotism. Young people are about 15% less likely than average to say the U.S. is the greatest country in the world (32% vs. 48%), and only half say the phrase “a patriotic person” describes them well. You see, it’s not actually patriotism that Millennials lack.

In fact, the opposite is true. Welcome to Forbes. Facebook used its news feed to control users' emotions: Forbes. There is no doubt that Facebook has become a social media giant but it will play with people’s emotion was never expected. Yes! Facebook has reveled that it played with emotions of over 689,003 of users through a vast experiment. Facebook is the best human research lab ever. There’s no need to get experiment participants to sign pesky consent forms as they’ve already agreed to the site’s data use policy. A team of Facebook data scientists are constantly coming up with new ways to study human behavior through the social network. When the team releases papers about what it’s learned from us, we often learn surprising things about Facebook instead — such as the fact that it can keep track of the status updates we never actually post.

Facebook has played around with manipulating people before — getting 60,000 to rock the vote in 2012 that theoretically wouldn’t have otherwise — but a recent study shows Facebook playing a whole new level of mind gamery with its guinea pigs users. Leave it to Walt Disney to share Sacred Geometry through Donald Duck in this Totally Epic Cartoon! On June 26th 1959, Disney released a short cartoon documentary titled “Donald in Mathmagic Land.” This video tells the story of our well known childhood cartoon pal Donald Duck, being lead by the “True Spirit of Adventure“ who guides him on his journey through “The World of MathMagic Land.”

Walt Disney explains the creation of this as being for educational purposes when he says, “The cartoon is a good medium to stimulate interest. We have recently explained mathematics in a film and in that way excited the public in this very important subject.” Several minutes in, the musical relation of math is shared with Donald through musical scale, and our feathery childhood friend ends up in a Jam sesh with the Greek mathematician Pythagoras.

Sources: Russell Brand Calls On 50,000 Protesters To Stage 'Joyful Revolution' Russell Brand has called on thousands of protesters to be part of a "peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution" that seizes power back from Westminster.

The former Big Brother's Big Mouth presenter, who this year implored readers of the New Statesman magazine to abandon the current political system, told crowds gathered in London's Parliament Square that MPs no longer represented the people. Speaking in the shadow of the Houses of Parliament at the end of a march marking the one-year anniversary of the People's Assembly being formed, Brand stripped off his T-shirt and replaced it with one carrying the message "Firefighters rescue people not bankers". Joyful Revolution: Brand Stripped Off His T-shirt During The Protest He said: "The people of this building (the House of Commons) generally speaking do not represent us, they represent their friends in big business.

Over the last month, millions of students have been celebrating their college graduation. These students have been saving, studying, and looking forward toward to that moment for years. Now with graduation behind them, their next big investment could be a car, a house, or even open a portfolio for retirement. Unfortunately, a recent Pew poll found that only eight percent of millennials expect to receive full Social Security benefits when they retire. With a bleak postgraduate job climate, the prospects for government-backed retirement insurance may be even worse. According to Pew, 51 percent of Millennials believe they will receive no Social Security money by the time they retire. 39 percent believe the system will provide benefits at reduced levels.

Social Security is the single largest program the federal government operates, constituting 23 percent of the federal budget. What happened over the past 64 years to cause such a tremendous spike?
