General practitioners in England have been receiving £50 bonuses for placing patients on controversial 'death lists' in order to reduce the number of occupied hospital beds. The move is yet another tactic aimed at cutting NHS costs, UK media reported.

Each death which occurs outside an NHS hospital has been calculated to save the health system some £1,000 ($1,600) in England. On average, deaths which occur inside NHS hospitals cost the service around £3,065 (just under $5000), while those elsewhere cost £2,107 (around $3,400). Doctors have been given bonuses for drawing up 'end-of-life advanced care plans' for patients they predict will die within a year. The payments in question apparently have the intention of keeping NHS costs as low as possible.

On October 3, the House Natural Resources Subcommittee on Public Lands and Environmental Regulation held a hearing on H.R. 3188, the "Yosemite Rim Fire Emergency Salvage Act" which was introduced on September 28 by Representative Tom McClintock (R-CA).

The bill states that the Forest Service, BLM and the National Park Service shall promptly plan and implement salvage sales of dead, damaged, or downed timber resulting from the Yosemite Rim wildfire. Additionally, the bill would require expedited implementation of projects by requiring that salvage sales conducted under this Act proceed immediately and to completion notwithstanding any other provision of law including NEPA, NFMA, FLMPA, the Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Act Planning Act, and other laws related to the management of timber within Yosemite National Park. Further, salvage sales conducted under this Act would not be subject to Administrative or Judicial Review in any court of the United States.

Edward Snowden, the hacker who gained access to every secret corner of the Internet during his tenure at the NSA, has come forward with details of a classified project to alter the world's climate.

The shocking truth, as he says, is that chemtrails are part of a benevolent program aimed at countering global warming. By cooperating in secret with jet fuel manufacturers, government agents have carefully kept the massive chemtrail efforts completely under wraps.

China's infamous one-child policy isn't just brutal in the abstract, it's also brutally enforced.

A video has come out of China that purportedly shows a man engaged in a violent struggle with the "birth control police" - the woman tasked with enforcing the one child policy - when he tried to protect his wife from a forced abortion. Meanwhile, a crowd passively watches the "show."

Mothers, your sack lunches may not be wanted.

Linda of the blog My 2 Crazy Curls, a Stay-at-Home-Mother who describes herself as a "deaf SAHM mom of 3," retells this hair-raising experience about her little one in an appropriately titled post "Wait..what? WHAT is THIS?!?!" Imagine your surprise if you're the mother of a preschooler and someone tells you that your efforts to feed your own child are not approved by the state? I would guess the conversations with the school's officials might turn awkward.

"All of us in the concession community feel like we're the victim of pretty high-stakes politics," says Eric Mart, founder of California Land Management Services Corporation, a private company that operates several hundred campground facilities.

After the start of the federal shutdown, Mart received direction from the Forest Service to close down operations in their parks. This action left Mart and other private land-management companies confused and frustrated. His operations don't require any federal money to be spent and Forest Service lands aren't staffed by federal workers the way that national parks are. In fact, Mart's company and similar public-private partnerships actually pay the government a percentage of the revenue they raise from campsite and other fees. "We are a tenant of the U.S. Forest Service," wrote Warren Meyer, who owns Phoenix-based Recreation Resource Management "A tenant does not have to close his business just because his landlord goes on a vacation."

If you needed another reason to oppose government run health care here's one to make your blood boil.

The federal government wants to reduce the number of Americans diagnosed each year with cancer. But not by better preventive care or healthier living. Instead, the government wants to redefine the term "cancer" so that fewer conditions qualify as a true cancer. What does this mean for ordinary Americans - and should we be concerned?
