As an organisation dedicated to beating cancer, we have a deep-rooted interest in any new research developments that could lead to new, more effective treatments for the disease.

So when we received an enquiry from a supporter about an article entitled "Cancer cured for good" by Bill Sardi and Timothy Hubbell* we were intrigued. The article talks about research by Nobuto Yamamoto in the US, looking at a protein called Gc-MAF (aka GcMAF). His published studies appear to show that injections of very small amounts of Gc-MAF can "cure" people with breast, bowel and prostate cancer.

A law passed in the '80s to prevent drug dealers from getting tax breaks is now taking a huge chomp out of legitimate outfits in Colorado and Washington.

Legal marijuana sales in Colorado and Washington State have grossed billions, but legal dealers will see little of that thanks to a draconian federal law meant to punish street pushers. In one of the first years of legal sales, 2015, Colorado moved nearly $1 billion worth of marijuana and is estimated to take in $135 million in taxes on it. Meanwhile, Washington is expected to pull in around $1 billion in revenue from sales taxes between 2015 and 2019. Despite technically being illegal on the federal level, these businesses must file taxes to the Internal Revenue Service-and they may pay as much as 70 percent in taxes to the feds. That's thanks to Section 280E of the tax code. Congress passed the measure in 1982 so that businesses who are "trafficking in controlled substances" that are prohibited by federal law may not utilize many tax deductions and credits available to other businesses, like deducting rent and employee-related expenses. That means a marijuana business owner can pay an effective tax rate as high as 70 percent, as opposed to the more typical 30 percent rate.

Workers in the state's U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development offices recently underwent a training program called Run. Hide. Fight., which is designed to teach people how to live through what authorities call active shooter events, according to Virginia Manuel, state director of USDA Rural Development.

Nearly every week, I hear someone shrug off privacy issues with a claim that they're not worried because they have "nothing to hide" from the government. Let's put a cork in it, once and for all.

"Over the last 16 months, as I've debated this issue around the world, every single time somebody has said to me, 'I don't really worry about invasions of privacy because I don't have anything to hide,' I always say the same thing to them. I get out a pen. I write down my email address. I say, 'Here's my email address. What I want you to do when you get home is email me the passwords to all of your email accounts, not just the nice, respectable work one in your name, but all of them, because I want to be able to just troll through what it is you're doing online, read what I want to read and publish whatever I find interesting. After all, if you're not a bad person, if you're doing nothing wrong, you should have nothing to hide.'

If you were put to the challenge stated below in this article, would you be able to do it? What skills do you think you would need to have, learn or sharpen before living like a 10th century farmer?

In 2013, a medieval re-enactment group set out to see what it would be like to survive a cold Russian winter in the Middle Ages. In an experiment launched in Khotkovo, 60 kilometers northeast of Moscow, they selected one of their members, Pavel Sapozhnikov, to live on a farmstead for eight months as part of a project entitled - Alone in the Past. The idea was to see if a modern person can survive in a 10th-century environment with no access to electricity, the Internet, or other modern comforts to trace the social and psychological changes in personality and learn how important the support of others is to modern humans.

US chemical titans Dow and DuPont have agreed to a $130 billion merger. Once combined, DowDuPont (as it will be known) intends to split into three parts, including one devoted solely to agriculture.

The announcement likely triggered corner office gasps in Basel, Switzerland, and in St. Louis, Missouri-hometowns of the globe's two-largest pesticide and seed companies, Syngenta and Monsanto. That's because Dow and DuPont are both sprawling conglomerates that contain massive ag divisions. Combining them into a "leading global pure-play Agriculture company" (as the companies' press release puts it) will create a gargantuan new rival for those market-leading agribusiness titans.

State Senator Kemp Hannon, Chair of the New York Senate Health Committee, and author of the recently passed law that will require all seventh and twelfth graders in the state to get meningitis shots, has been caught with his hand in the pot.

And to no small sum, mind you. His investments in pharmaceutical and health companies is at $100,000, while it is also being alleged that he has received more than $400,000 from the same interest groups. Hannon's investments are a direct conflict of interest and he should be charged criminally. This is an act of using your position to influence and write laws for the sole result of personal gain.

This generation stands on the precipice of becoming the most failing gatekeepers for following generations, in all of human history ... if we choose not to act, and quickly! ~ Roger Landry (TLB)

Geo-engineering or weather modification is not a myth, a lie or a conspiracy theory. It is in fact a painful and deadly reality. One need only look up on any given day to see large jets crisscrossing the sky from horizon to horizon, leaving chemical or particulate swaths across the brilliant blue heavens, that quickly transform to a putrid gray blanket, as the trails spread out and merge.

The story could be the plot for a western-style soap opera. The latest scene involved two ranchers being sentenced to five years in federal prison for inadvertently burning about 140 acres of Bureau of Land Management rangeland in two separate fires.

Dwight Hammond, 73 and son Steven Hamond, 46, admitted in a 2012 court case to lighting two different fires. Both fires started on Hammonds' private property. The Harney County ranchers are paying the BLM $400,000 for the costs of fighting fires the BLM claims they set. "The jury convicted both of the Hammonds of using fire to destroy federal property for a 2001 arson known as the Hardie-Hammond Fire, located in the Steens Mountain Cooperative Management and Protection Area," said a Department of Justice news release.
