“I was born human but I believe it’s something we have the power to change”
Kevin Warwick

Mother Nature Network“Between our laptops, smartphones and tablets, we already use technology to connect ourselves in ever-advanced ways to the world. Indeed, the line between technology and reality has become increasingly blurred. Projecting into the future, it’s not hard to imagine the line disappearing entirely — when humans and technology merge and become indistinguishable. Some philosophers and scientists think this kind of “technological singularity” could be achieved within just a few more generations. In other words, we’re all well on our way to becoming cyborgs.

The Perfect Ebola Mess

o-EBOLA-facebook

USA Today “President Obama has directed the Centers for Disease Control to dispatch rapid response “SWAT teams” of Ebola experts to any local hospital with an infected patient within 24 hours. … Underscoring the urgency of the crisis, Obama postponed a long-planned trip to New Jersey and Connecticut to campaign for Democrats. That decision came shortly after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said a second Dallas health care worker who has tested positive for the deadly virus had recently returned from a flight to Cleveland.”

Kissenger The Prophet

kissinger“”Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will pledge with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government. – Henry Kissinger in an address to the Bilderberger meeting at Evian, France, May 21, 1992.  Read the rest of this entry »

Ebola Ebola Everywhere

waterWater Water Everywhere
Water water everywhere and not a drop to drink
That is of course until this lovely ship does sink
There is nothing to compare to a sunrise while at sea
Oh how I’ve missed those moments special just to me

Cancer – A death sentence

moringa-leavesThe prognosis of a person having cancer is tantamount to a judge pronouncing a death sentence. Cancer is a fearsome sickness. Mainstream medical science has no complete answer to this. Simultaneously, many other theories on the causes of cancer abound, alongside non-medical, non-invasive purported cures. According to reports, Body acidity is one main cause of providing an environment in the body for cancerous growth. Sugar does the reverse, promoting cancerous growth. There are advocates of taking baking soda to promote alkalinity in the body and counteract body acidity. Mayo Clinic stated “Sodium bicarbonate is also used to make the blood and urine more alkaline in certain conditions.” Take note that there is a qualification in the Mayo statement.  Read the rest of this entry »

To eat or Not to Eat?

Deformed fruit from Saitama

Deformed fruit from Saitama

Ever since the earthquake cum tsunami incident that destroyed the nuclear plants at Fukushima, the effort to contain radioactive fallout is apparently futile. Official reports on the situation there are scanty. The Abe government has since November 2013, effectively placed a gag order to prohibit unauthorised reports of the calamity. Under these circumstances, speculation of the true nature of the nuclear disaster is rife. What is the impact of the aftermath and on the ongoing effort to mitigate radioactive contamination cannot be adequately assessed. Read the rest of this entry »

Am I a Bastard?

Sarah Dingle's Family

Sarah Dingle’s Family

“Without the right to the truth about our genetic origins, donor-conceived people will remain products of industry, not human beings.” (Sydney Morning Herald, 16th august 2014). Sarah Single, a 27 year old Sydney-sider of mixed parentage, was shocked to discover that she was conceived using a donor sperm. Her mother had resorted to artificial insemination as a result of paternal infertility. The revelation of her conception triggered her instinctive urge to trace her “real” roots. Ethics surrounding artificial insemination demands that donors are kept anonymous. Her quest for her genetic origins is in vain. It only deepens her frustration now that she knows that she may have several “siblings” from the same sperm donor.

Ebola Pandemic

News Flashed

“Faced with a widening crisis over the spread of the deadly Ebola virus, Sierra Leone’s government said Tuesday that it would deploy hundreds of troops and police officers to ensure that patients and family members who may be infected remain isolated. A battalion — 750 soldiers — will be sent to clinics housing Ebola patients in areas where the disease is most virulent, and the police presence will be reinforced at homes where family members are at risk of having contracted it, said Abdulai Baratay, a government spokesman” (The New York Times, 6 August 2014).

The recent Ebola outbreak started in Guinea, West Africa in March 2014, just a few months ago. It progressed rapidly to Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Nigeria. It was not contained and is now heading for uncharted waters as the disease is poised to spread round the globe. The disease is reported to have no known vaccine, and has a high 50%-90% fatality rate. It was first reported in 1976 in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where it resulted in 431 deaths out of 602 known cases.  Read the rest of this entry »

Food for Thought

The urban kid who has never been outside the confines of a city thinks that eggs come from the supermarket. It sounds so laughable and preposterous. But truly, these new generation kids cannot see and think outside the city walls. They have not seen a live chicken, nor how an egg is laid. All that they know is that the egg is an item on the shelves of a supermarket. The world of a modern urban child is so shielded. With all the conveniences available at the touch of the finger, the end is all that is sought. The means are of no value nor meaning. It is a ME and NOW syndrome that permeates all stratum of society in modern cities. To a certain extent, it is immaterial where an egg originates. Just like the burger in a fast food restaurant. What is in the burger is of no importance so long as the burger tastes great and the nutritional contents are meticulously labelled in accordance with regulatory requirements.
