'The Godzilla of Earths!' New planet weighing 17 times greater than Earth discovered
June 3, 2014
A humungous Earth-like planet found by US astronomers has changed the perception of planet formation. A rocky world found by Kepler space observatory should by rights have become a giant ball of gas, but has remained a planet for billions of years.
The newly discovered Kepler-10c planet has been dubbed 'Mega-Earth' thanks to its diameter of 29,000 kilometers and an estimated weight 17 times greater than Earth, which has a diameter of 12,742 kilometers. This makes Kepler-10c the biggest rocky planet ever discovered. The new planet is circling a very old Sun-like star, Kepler-10, some 560 light years from Earth. If you look up in the sky this star can be seen in the Draco constellation, which is 300 million light years away.
Do You Make Health Decisions Based on What the ACSH Says?
by Dr. Mercola
The American Council on Science and Health (ACSH) is filled with people from biotech and vaccine companies -- how can you trust them with your health?
There are many dozens of industry front groups masquerading as independent information organizations. I've previously published information about several of them, including the International Food Additives Council (IFAC), the Coalition Against Costly Food Labeling Proposition, the Science Media Centre, and Alliance to Feed the Future. Michele Simon, JD, MPH, policy consultant with Center for Food Safety has also published a report titled: "Best Public Relations Money Can Buy: A Guide to Food Industry Front Groups," which reveals how the food and agricultural industry hide behind friendly-sounding organizations aimed at fooling the public, policymakers, and the media.
Scientists Have Figured Out How to Regenerate Teeth With Lasers.
by Kevin Loria
May 31, 2014
Using lasers to regenerate and grow body parts sounds like science fiction, but researchers have just demonstrated that it might be a tranformative tool in medicine-or at least dentistry-in the future.
A Harvard-led team just successfully used low-powered lasers to activate stem cells and stimulate the growth of teeth in rats and human dental tissue in a lab. The results were published today in the journal Science Translational Medicine. Stem cells exist throughout the body, and they fascinate scientists because they have the ability to become different types of cells - which means they have the potential to repair or replace damaged or worn out tissue. Figuring out new ways to make them useful has long been a goal of medical researchers.
This is Why So Many People Did NOT March Against Monsanto
by Justin Gardener
May 30, 2014
How do you come to dominate the majority of commodity crops in the U.S.? How do you convince government that your products are the savior of agriculture? How do you convince people that your products pose no danger to their health?
Don't allow research on your product. Take over the funding of research at agricultural universities. And all the while, spend hundreds of millions of dollars on advertising and lobbying. This is how Monsanto has been able to shove its genetically-engineered crops onto so much farmland in the U.S. without adequate testing. It's a giant experiment. Our food system, public health, and environmental health are the victims.
Studies show that oil pulling can kill harmful bacteria in the mouth
May 29, 2014
Oil pulling is a process of swishing an edible oil around the mouth for between 10 and 20 minutes, ideally upon awakening, for detoxification purposes.
Its origins lie in the Ayurveda, the ancient healing system of India, and countless people from all backgrounds swear by it. In fact, if one believes the online reports written by those with first-hand experience of oil pulling, there doesn't seem to be any condition that it can't at least improve. The historical and present understanding behind oil pulling is encapsulated in the ancient axiom, "all diseases start in the mouth." Therefore, any practice that prevents problems in the mouth should, in theory, prevent (and possibly even treat) diseases that lie elsewhere. But does oil pulling actually prevent oral problems in the first place? Several studies show that it does.
Minority rules: Scientists discover tipping point for the spread of ideas
by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
May 25, 2014
Scientists have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society.
Sientists at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have found that when just 10 percent of the population holds an unshakable belief, their belief will always be adopted by the majority of the society. The scientists, who are members of the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) at Rensselaer, used computational and analytical methods to discover the tipping point where a minority belief becomes the majority opinion. The finding has implications for the study and influence of societal interactions ranging from the spread of innovations to the movement of political ideals.
Fast and Furious, fast tracking SB 277, forced sterilization and the death of Paul Walker
May 15, 2014
A former official with the Philippine government's population control organization has released an official medical report affirming that Filipina women were injected with sterilizing agents without their knowledge or consent.
Advertised as a national vaccination effort, the program involved the lacing of anti-tetanus toxoids with a sterilizing chemical known as HCG. Thousands of Filipino women between the ages of 15 and 45 were inoculated by the tainted vaccines. Only through the efforts of Catholic church organizations was the tainted vaccine brought to public attention" Kenyan women were injected with a tetanus vaccine corded with Beta-HCG to cause infertility and miscarriages. The Bishops of Kenya issued a courageous statement exposing this secret sterilization program disguised as a tetanus vaccine.
FDA considers approval of genetically modified babies
by Ethan A. Huff
March 25, 2014
As mainstream society inches increasingly further away from the natural order of things, some scientists are busy hatching new methods of human reproduction that employ the same gene-altering techniques used by biotechnology companies like Monsanto.
And according to new reports, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is fully on board with this brave new agenda, having recently met to discuss the future of what the mainstream media is now referring to as genetically modified (GM) human beings. A chilling report by The New York Times explains that a special FDA advisory committee recently met to discuss the approval of "radical biological procedures" that involve splicing and dicing the genetic blueprint of the human form.
Weather Channel Founder Explains the History of the Global Warming Hoax
by Matthew Burke
March 17, 2014
Weather Channel Founder John Coleman explains the history of the Global Warming hoax.
Coleman, a former broadcast meteorologist of the year of the American Meteorological Society (AMS), explains that after being a member for several years, he quit the AMS after it became very clear to him that "the politics had gotten in the way of the science." Coleman explains that there is no man-made global warming, and he's sure of it. Coleman says that if there were evidence of man-made global warming, he would have been dedicated his life to stopping it: "I love our wonderful planet Earth. If I thought it was threatened by global warming, I would devote my life to stopping the warming!"
Hi-tech gamechanger: Newly-discovered '3D graphene' may lead to electronics revolution
January 17, 2014
Berkeley Lab researchers have found a 3D analogue of the cutting-edge 2D material graphene. It could revolutionize the high tech industry, bringing things like much faster, far more compact hard drives, and paving way for new electronic technologies.
Researchers at the US Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have announced the discovery of a compound that can exist as a form of quantum matter known as the three-dimensional topological Dirac semi-metal (3DTDS). The research team supported by the DOE Office of Science and the National Science Foundation of China used sodium bismuthate to produce this novel state, the very existence of which had been proposed by theorists fairly recently. The discovery comes less than a decade after graphene, the thinnest and the strongest known stable material with amazing conductivity of electricity and heat was isolated by UK-based, Russian-born scientists, Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov.
