It's Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees

It's Official- Cell Phones are Killing Bees
Scientists may have found the cause of the world’s sudden dwindling population of bees – and cell phones may be to blame. Research conducted in Lausanne, Switzerland has shown that the signal from cell phones not only confuses bees, but also may lead to their death. Over 83 experiments have yielded the same results. With virtually most of the population of the United States (and the rest of the world) owning cell phones, the impact has been greatly noticeable. Led by researcher Daniel Favre, the alarming study found that bees reacted significantly to cell phones that were placed near or in hives in call-making mode. The signals cause the bees to become lost and disoriented. Bees are an integral and necessary part of our agricultural and ecological systems, producing honey, and more importantly pollinating our crops. Via Daily Mail Related:  The Dark Side

Nu publicerar vi förundersökningen om Julian Assange - Magasinet Paragraf Bilden som illustrerar den här artikeln visar hur man i stora delar av världen ser på staten Sveriges agerande gentemot Julian Assange. Jag har en tid haft tillgång till hela den svenska förundersökningen om Julian Assanges påstådda sexbrott. Har varit tveksam till om vi skulle publicera den eller inte. Inte för att den är sekretessbelagd. Det finns ofta anledning för oss på Para§raf att låta publicera dokument som makthavare av olika slag vill dölja. Utan för att den avhandlar intima sexuella detaljer. Frågor och svar Några korta frågor och svar beskriver vad det handlar om: Raggade Assange upp de här två kvinnorna? Nej, de raggade upp honom och erbjöd honom att bo i deras lägenheter. Sa de ifrån om att de inte ville ligga med honom? Nej, inte alls. Använde han våld för att ha sex med dem? Nej. Ville han helst ha sex utan kondom? Ja, men det är inte olagligt. Hade han medvetet sönder en kondom? Blev någon av kvinnorna gravid eller smittad av någon sjukdom? Som en rockidol Varnade Assange

Most Americans hate their jobs or have ‘checked out,’ Gallup says | Seattle Free Press By Ricardo Lopez of The Seattle Times: Seven out of 10 workers have “checked out” at work or are “actively disengaged,” according to a recent Gallup survey. In its ongoing survey of the American workplace, Gallup found that only 30 percent of workers are “were engaged, or involved in, enthusiastic about, and committed to their workplace.” Although that equals the high in engagement since Gallup began studying the issue in 2000, it is overshadowed by the number of workers who aren’t committed to performing at a high level — which Gallup says costs companies money. The poll, released last week, examined worker engagement beginning in 2010 and ending in 2012. The survey classifies three types of employees among the 100 million people in America who hold full-time jobs. The third type, labeled “actively disengaged,” hates going to work. Gallup estimates that workers who are actively disengaged cost the U.S. as much as $550 billion in economic activity yearly. Like this: Like Loading...

How To Store Produce Without Plastic We don’t use plastic to store any of our vegetables or fruits. For example, we store carrots, whole or cut, immersed in containers of water. They will stay crisp in the refrigerator for weeks. (Make sure to change the water frequently.) The Berkeley Farmers Market has put together a huge list of ways to store produce without plastic. How to Store Vegetables Without Plastic Always remove any tight bands from your vegetables or at least loosen them to allow them to breath. Artichokes‐ place in an airtight container sealed, with light moisture.Asparagus‐ place them loosely in a glass or bowl upright with water at room temperature. How to Store Fruit Without Plastic Apples‐ store on a cool counter or shelf for up to two weeks. One question I’m often asked is how to store loose salad greens without plastic. We also don’t freeze veggies and fruits or buy them frozen. I’d love to hear about your produce storage ideas/challenges.

Nowe plany depopulacji Niedługo do układów klimatyzacji w samochodach trafi nowe chłodziwo o symbolu HFO-1234yf, 2,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropan czyli fluorowany węglowodór. Ma ono zastąpić wycofywany z rynku R 134a, jako że ten ostatni został uznany za gaz cieplarniany, a jak wiadomo gazy cieplarniane powodują ocieplenie klimatu, co stanowi nowy dogmat wiary NWO. Nowe chłodziwo ma 300-krotnie mniejsze możliwości tworzenia efektu cieplarnianego i to jest jego jedyna, wątpliwa zaleta. Jednocześnie jednak ma dwie spore wady: po pierwsze, pod wpływem wysokiej temperatury przekształca się w śmiertelną truciznę, fluorowodór, a po drugie jest horrendalnie drogie. Fluorowodór wydzielający się przy silnym podgrzaniu HFO-1234yf bezboleśnie przenika przez skórę, a nawet przez strój ochronny. Przeprowadzono w Niemczech próby laboratoryjne, do których użyto świńskich łów z ubojni. Natomiast w układzie klimatyzacyjnym jest około 600 gram fluorowodoru.

Loss of Biodiversity and Extinctions Author and Page information Massive Extinctions From Human Activity Despite knowing about biodiversity’s importance for a long time, human activity has been causing massive extinctions. As the Environment New Service, reported back in August 1999 (previous link): “the current extinction rate is now approaching 1,000 times the background rate and may climb to 10,000 times the background rate during the next century, if present trends continue [resulting in] a loss that would easily equal those of past extinctions.” (Emphasis added) A major report, the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, released in March 2005 highlighted a substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth, with some 10-30% of the mammal, bird and amphibian species threatened with extinction, due to human actions. The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) notes in a video that many species are threatened with extinction. Is this the kind of world we want, it asks? Back to top Dr. — Dr.

RIM: BlackBerry's future lies in social networking BARCELONA, Spain--The secret of the BlackBerry's success is security, according to Research In Motion's co-chief executive, Jim Balsillie, but social networking is its future. Speaking during a session on mobile services here at the GSMA Mobile World Congress, Balsillie said having security validations worldwide, and features such as built-in firewalls and the ability to remotely lock and wipe devices, are key. "If you don't address this, you don't get to be accepted by the organization," Balsillie warned. Echoing Vodafone Group chief executive Arun Sarin's words from an earlier keynote, Balsillie said carriers have come to a fork in the road that will see them either become pipes or platforms. And change is afoot elsewhere too, according to Balsillie, who said a business-to-business social-networking revolution is coming that will bring networking benefits to the enterprise and also help drive data usage.

Finnish research brings carbon material to solar cells Kerttu Aitola, a researcher at Aalto University, is the first person to replace the most expensive parts of solar cells with carbon nanomaterials. In her doctoral dissertation she compares the suitability of different carbon nanomaterials as counter electrodes for dye solar cells. The current, third-generation solar cells are manufactured from silicon. The future alternative to silicon solar cells is dye-sensitised solar cell technology, DSC, which has been described as artificial photosynthesis. The technology was the winner of the 2010 Millennium Technology Prize. Aitola and her colleagues replaced the counter electrode of the solar cells with a new carbon composite, carbon nanotubes. Additionally, instead of glass substrate, the researchers used a flexible plastic substrate, which allows the use of a printing process in the production of solar cells. Kerttu Aitola defended her dissertation Carbon nanomaterials as Counter Electrodes for Dye Solar Cells on 25 May at Aalto University.

13 Most Evil U.S. Government Experiments on Humans The U.S. Government has been caught conducting an insane amount of vile, inhumane and grisly experiments on humans without their consent and often without their knowledge. So in light of recent news of the U.S. infecting Guatemalans with STDs, here are the 13 most evil, for lack of a better word, cases of human-testing as conducted by the United States of America. Get ready to become one of those conspiracy theory nuts, because after this list, you will never fully trust your government again. 1) Mind Control, Child Abuse – Project MKULTRA, Subproject 68 This is the stuff of nightmares. 2) Mustard Gas Tested on Soldiers via Involuntary Gas Chambers As bio-weapon research intensified in the 1940′s, officials also began testing its repercussions and defenses on the Army itself. 3) U.S. As head of Japan’s infamous Unit 731 (a covert biological and chemical warfare research and development unit of the Imperial Japanese Army during World War II), Dr. 5) US Infects Guatemalans With STD’s

Mississippi Could Soon Jail Women for Stillbirths, Miscarriages On March 14, 2009, 31 weeks into her pregnancy, Nina Buckhalter gave birth to a stillborn baby girl. She named the child Hayley Jade. Two months later, a grand jury in Lamar County, Mississippi, indicted Buckhalter for manslaughter, claiming that the then-29-year-old woman "did willfully, unlawfully, feloniously, kill Hayley Jade Buckhalter, a human being, by culpable negligence." The district attorney argued that methamphetamine detected in Buckhalter's system caused Hayley Jade's death. If prosecutors prevail in this case, the state would be setting a "dangerous precedent" that "unintentional pregnancy loss can be treated as a form of homicide," says Farah Diaz-Tello, a staff attorney with National Advocates for Pregnant Women, a nonprofit legal organization that has joined with Robert McDuff, a Mississippi civil rights lawyer, to defend Buckhalter. Mississippi's manslaughter laws were not intended to apply in cases of stillbirths and miscarriages.
