9/11: Explosive Evidence - Experts Speak Out (Free 1-hour version)



This is the 1-hour version of our 1 ½ hour groundbreaking documentary 9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out which is available for purchase as a DVD in our online store at http://www.AE911Truth.org or as a download or video-on-demand at http://www.911ExpertsSpeakOut.org .

Public Broadcasting Station, Colorado Public Television (cpt12.org), have courageously thrust themselves at the forefront of our nation's public service media network. CPT12 recently aired this powerful and controversial film as a featured premium during their Summer fundraising campaign. The PBS national website then posted the re-broadcast which quickly became one of their "Most Watched" as well as "Most Shared" programs on PBS. 
 We are approaching the 11th year since that fateful day in September and more and more people are becoming aware that they haven't gotten the whole story on 9/11. Over 1700 architects & engineers are leading the way at AE911TRUTH, with dozens of additional professionals joining them in this documentary to put their careers on the line in their demand for a new independent investigation. High-rise architects, structural engineers, scientists, physicists, chemists, scholars, educators, firefighters, forensic fire engineers, demolition experts and others have put together a ground-breaking scientific assessment of the events at the World Trade Center. The sudden, complete collapse of the third skyscraper on 9/11, WTC Building 7 at 5:20pm, is now being seen around the world as "the smoking gun" which disproves the official story about 9/11. These experts also introduce additional "overwhelming evidence" for a controlled demolition hypothesis at WTC which is disturbing to say the least. The film does not speculate, and empathizes with viewers by also presenting the most popular segment of the film, which introduces the professional perspectives of eight psychologists who explain some of the reasons why it is so hard for people to face the scientific evidence. This is the most scientific and compelling 9/11 documentary film to date, containing vital information that demands action from all of us. We can no longer afford to ignore the World Trade Center evidence.

Please support the organization which made this program possible by purchasing the DVD or making a tax-deductible donation at http://www.AE911TRUTH.org.

Shortened 58.5 minute version for promotional use. Please support AE911Truth by purchasing the DVD, downloading it or watching it now at http://www.911ExpertsSpeakOut.org

How Divorce Can Impact Development | Child Development



Divorce can have a great impact on a child's development. Divorce can be very difficult on a child who's used to their routine, who is used to two parents being at home all the time to now being in a split situation or being kind of moved from one home to another and then being able to co-parent it presents its own challenges as an adult.

Divorce could also present some emotional difficulties for the child. They could feel that maybe they've done something wrong. They could feel a little bit insecure or unsure or what's going on. And feel a little inadequate. That's kind of natural.

The important thing to do is anytime there's any kind of life changing event a child will feel that. A child feels everything. They can sense the energy from the adults in the room. They can sense the energy from the animals in the room. They're very, very perceptive.

What's really important is to provide them with an outlet. Provide them with counseling by a licensed psychologist who can work with the child on how they're feeling as well as perhaps family therapy. This of course should be discussed with your child's pediatrician and with licensed clinicians to better point you in the right direction.

It's also important that anytime a child is going through a difficult time such as a divorce to provide opportunities of fun and play and to make things as happy as you can. So to take them on a trip, take them on an adventure, to talk to them, to make them feel loved and warm is also great. Remember to continue to support your child and their emotional well-being and to seek professional assistance in providing that emotional support for your child when there's a life changing event such as a divorce.

Nutrition has a great impact on childhood development. Just like as adults what we eat can affect our ability to perform our tasks at home and at work, a child has the same challenges every day. Exposing your child to a variety of different foods and textures is also really important. So you want them to try all types of things. Of course, you want them to eat vegetables. You want them to eat their fruit. You want them to eat lean cuts of meat like chicken.

You also want them to try new foods. So any time you go out to eat at a restaurant have them try something new too. This will actually develop their palate more and have them be less picky and it will also help you because wherever you go they'll be able to try new things. You should also make sure that your child is getting enough dairy, cheese, yogurt is great also and to limit the amount of sugar they take. Really because if you've ever given a child a lot of sugar you'll see for yourself the effect that it has on them and you might see for yourself that maybe that was a little too much sugar.

So limit the sugar. Everything in moderation. And make sure that your child is gaining weight at the rate that they should be by checking in with your pediatrician and voicing any concerns that you have with them at all times.

Documentary BBC - A History of Syria (2013)


Robin Barnwell, who directed and produced 'A History of Syria with Dan Snow', explains the challenges of filiming amid the conflict, and describes the spirit of the Syrian people he met.


The Syrian Airlines jet performed an alarming dive on its nighttime approach into Damascus airport in an attempt to avoid any hostile fire. The exterior lights on the aircraft were switched off to make it less visible to any rebel fighters attempting to shoot the plane down. Syrian army artillery rounds were flying through the air, thudding into residential suburbs not far from the airport.

Once we'd landed, I saw little of the Syria I knew from my previous two visits. The airport that had been the gateway to the country for tourists was quiet. The road to the centre of Damascus was eerily empty. Our driver drove as fast as he could, speeding us past signs welcoming us to Syria on a road that regularly comes under attack or is caught in the crossfire in a conflict that has now cost more than 70,000 lives and displaced millions. How, I wondered, had Syria and its people, whom I had such warm memories of, reached such a state?

Like many people, I first travelled to Syria in 1995 to immerse myself in the country's extraordinary and varied history. Now I was in Damascus to direct and film a documentary that would explain how history had helped shape and influence the appalling civil war that is tearing Syria and its different communities apart. It was a strange relief to be in Damascus, as visas for journalists and filmmakers, issued by the Syrian government, are difficult to obtain.

The programme's Middle East producer had doggedly convinced a suspicious Syrian Ministry of Information that now was the right time to make a history of Syria after weeks of officials telling us to come back after the 'current, temporary problems' were over. We persisted in pushing for access because history can help explain the current violence in Syria; violence that has become increasingly incomprehensible for audiences of news programmes around the world.

I was surprised by my own ignorance about the subject. It was only after weeks of reading and meetings with experts before actually arriving in Syria did I map the historical connections, linking present day events with the past. How though, were we to go about making a documentary in a country consumed by civil war?

Permission to film almost anything and anyone was frustratingly difficult to obtain. The official from the Syrian Ministry of Information assigned to take us around kept apologizing for the numerous new restrictions that had been put in place. Getting access to the beautiful Old City of Damascus now involved negotiating a way through sandbagged checkpoints past soldiers who were suspicious of foreigners and visibly on edge.

Surreally, though, Syrians were rushing around going about their daily business, seemingly ignoring the near constant sound of gunfire and fighter jets which screeched overhead to bomb targets in the suburbs. An even stranger sense of normality prevailed in other locations we filmed, particularly in Syria's coastal city Lattakia, where no fighting was taking place. We mingled with couples watching the sunset over the Mediterranean and for a moment one was back in pre-conflict Syria. But the effects of war were never far away.

The Trillion Dollar Con Man (BBC Documentary)



Panorama tracks down a fraudster who stole a football club and broke a bank. With his tales of foreign gold and assets worth 2 trillion dollars, the con man fooled politicians, celebrities and the City. He even tricked the former England football manager, Sven-Goran Eriksson, into visiting North Korea to support his scam. So why were so many people taken in, and how did one man run rings round the regulators and authorities?

Insomnia is a common complaint amongst shift workers. The problem in shift work is that you're trying to sleep against your body's own [inaudible 00:13] rhythm you're, trying to sleep in the daytime when there is a lights and activities surrounding you, preventing you from falling asleep and staying asleep. The first thing that you want to do is, get blackout shades, to help diminish light exposure, in your bedroom. Diminishing light exposure to create your body's melatonin, which help with sleep onset. Now, another way to help this is by taking supplemental melatonin.

In general, melatonin levels are decreased in this is shift workers. So taking supplemental melatonin will help you augment that process of sleep onset. Now, certain medications can also combat the process of insomnia in shift workers. Such as weight promoting agents called new vigil or pro vigil. They will help you stay awake in the hours that you are supposed to be working as well as light exposure in those hours that you're so supposed to be working. Another problem in shift workers is that you need to take care of life errands.

So, this will decrease the amount of sleep then you can get during the day. There are multiple methods to help improve your sleep during the daytime, when you are a shift worker and these you can try on your own but it they are not helping, you might want to consult with your doctor, to see if any other use of medication is needed to help you sleep better, during the day time hours.

How Robots Will Change the World - BBC Documentary



Robotics future

Robot will Compete to Handle Future Disasters

Robotics is the art and commerce of robots, their design, manufacture, application, and practical use. Robots will soon be everywhere, in our home and at work. They will change the way we live. This will raise many philosophical, social, and political questions that will have to be answered. In science fiction, robots become so intelligent that they decide to take over the world because humans are deemed inferior. In real life, however, they might not choose to do that. Robots might follow rules such as Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics, that will prevent them from doing so. When the Singularity happens, robots will be indistinguishable from human beings and some people may become Cyborgs: half man and half machine.

Unfortunatly, due to Japan's shrinking population and poor government intervention plans, they will be completly unable to capitalize on their (shrinking) advantage in technology. India's vast advantage in the fields of technology, and Germany's massive hi amounts of capital will make them far larger powers then Japan.

Microsoft Robotics Studio

Microsoft is currently working to stabilize the fragmented robotics market with its new software Microsoft Robotics Studio.

Minimal requirements To start a robotic breakthrough we need the following capabilities :

object recognition capabilities of a 2-year-old child language understanding of a 4-year-old manual dexterity of a 6-year-old That will allow robotisation of most manual jobs in the world and will be the turning point in the robotic history.

M-Tran - a snake-like modular robot that uses genetic algorithms to evolve walking programs Self replicating robots - modular robots that can produce copies of themselves using existing blocks. Swarmanoid is a project that uses 3 specialized classes of robots (footbots, handbots and eyebots) to create an effective swarm. Such swarm should be able, for example, to tidy a bedroom with each robot doing what it is best at. Police Robots

Being a police officer or a fireman is a dangerous job. They will be replaced by robots. Robot police officers will be sent to the scene of the crime to stop it. The police robots will know automatically who is committing the crime (City Awareness Grid Electronic C.A.G.E). People are afraid of robots with guns. Guns will be illegal in the future. Police robots will only have non-lethal weapons.

Health risks of genetically modified foods
Stanley WB Ewen a, Arpad Pusztai b
Sir—Your May 29 editorial1 about the health risks of genetically modified (GM) food was apposite and addresses some of the important medical issues vigorously. It beggars belief that "badly designed, poorly carried out, inaccurately interpreted experiments" could have perpetuated such profound public debate for almost a year.

Regrettably, among the correspondents who responded to the editorial, Peter Lachman (July 3, p 69)2 accused you of factual inaccuracy, and it seems pertinent to remind him of the actual sequence of events. The Scottish Crop Research Institute (SCRI) did not initiate a study into GM potatoes. The research proposal for this "entirely sensible study" was, in fact, initiated by Susan Bardocz and Arpad Pusztai, written and submitted from the Rowett with the help of SCRI and Durham University scientists and coordinated by Pusztai.

Your editorial correctly notes that not all the facts were in the possession of the Royal Society. Thus, it is difficult to understand how they could deduce that the GM-potato experiments were "badly designed and poorly carried out" from an internal report by Pusztai that contained no such details. The Royal Society had never considered, or even asked for, a copy of the original research proposal of 1995. This omission was further compounded by the Royal Society's unwillingness to take up Pusztai's offer of full cooperation. Moreover, as crucial details of the histological findings were never divulged to them, it is more than perplexing that the Royal Society's unnamed experts were so emphatic in their condemnation of the GM-potato experiments.

The unsolicited report of the Royal Society, produced by clandestine "peer review", is deprecable, because many influential committees are redolent with advisers linked to biotechnology companies. The commercial prevarication that impedes scientific debate is well illustrated by the experience of Eric Brunner and Erik Millstone3 and we strongly commend their support for openness in the regulatory process for new foods.

After the US Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) and various biotechnology companies' exhaustive safety studies, only one publication on feeding GM soya to animals has been published up to the beginning of 1999.4 Lachmann claims that "there is no experimental evidence or any plausible mechanism by which the process of genetic modification can make plants hazardous to human beings", although it now seems that the FDA has overriden its own safety experts. It would be helpful if such authoritative opinions were supported by published results of biological, nutritional, and immunological testing with mammals before introduction into the human diet.

Scant attention has been given to people with abnormal digestion as a result of chronic gastrointestinal disease. The widespread mucosal accessibility to food viral DNA, a hot spot of DNA recombination, could allow unexpected enhancement of intercurrent viral infection. Similarly, in countries where HIV-1 infection is endemic, the assumption that a viral component of GM food is harmless maybe misplaced.

Few would question the well meaning sentiments of your correspondents but other equally valid opinions do not agree with the view that the GM route is the only salvation for mankind. We hope that your correspondents are correct about the health prospects of the millions of Americans and Chinese who have been consuming untested but assuredly "safe" GM food for years. In the UK, nobody can be completely certain whether or not they have consumed GM foods and overseas consumers cannot be declared unaffected until chronic symptoms are identified, collated, and published.

Don't Grow Old (BBC Documentary)


For centuries scientists have been attempting to come up with an elixir of youth. Now remarkable discoveries are suggesting that ageing is something flexible that can ultimately be manipulated.

Horizon meets the scientists who are attempting to piece together why we age and more vitally for all of us, what we can do to prevent it. But which theory will prevail?

Does the 95-year-old woman who smokes two packets of cigarettes a day hold the clue? Do blueberries really delay signs of ageing or is it more a question of attitude? Does the real key to controlling how we age lie with a five-year-old boy with an extraordinary ageing disease or with a self-experimenting Harvard professor?

Could one of these breakthroughs really see our lives extend past 120 years?

Food wastage footprint



FAO projects that, under current production and consumption trends, global food production must increase 60% by 2050 in order to meet the demands of the growing world population. Yet, more than one third of the food produced today is lost or wasted. Food loss refers to the decrease in edible food mass at the production, post-harvest and processing stages of the food chain, mostly in developing countries. Food waste, a symptom of developed countries' consumeristic lifestyles, refers to the discard of foods at the retail and consumer levels. This food wastage represents a missed opportunity to food security and comes at a steep environmental price.
In avoiding food wastage, there is actually more that would be gained by its reduction than a mere reduction in its ‘footprint’. For instance, more efficient systems that reduce either losses or waste would likely result in additionally reduced GHG emissions, in part directly, since wastage typically generates methane emissions during food disposal, as well as indirectly, given that reducing wastage may lead to critical redesign of supply chains and retail models, which may result in less energy use along the food chain, and thus associated GHG emissions. Generally, less wastage is associated with more efficiency and eventually more effective recycling of resources and less transport and storage needs across long distances - all leading to savings in natural capital, less resource use and lower GHG emissions. With regards increased food security, including availability, access and utilization, reducing wastage can also be achieved by reducing certain loss factors, for instance, by increasing local supplies in Least Developed Countries or by promoting programmes where the food saved from an otherwise waste pathway in retailing is specifically accounted for and used as food aid.
To date, no study has analyzed the environmental impact of global food wastage. FAO intends to produce the first global Food Wastage Footprint (FWF) in order to quantify the impact of the food grown, but not eaten - both loss and waste - on the environment and the economy, with a view to assist decision-making along the food chain.
The purpose of the FWF project to provide, as complete and accurate as possible, a picture of the environmental footprint of global food wastage, with a particular emphasis on impacts on soil, water, biodiversity, and climate change. The aim is to bring more precision to the debate on the environmental impacts of food wastage, by providing a more consistent knowledge base, which can be used to underpin future policy debate in this area (see Concept Note 1).
More specifically:
  • Best practices are collected through a public database where organizations and individual experts with expertise on food wastage contribute by directly inputing into the Database;
  • The second phase of the FWF project is currently defining methods for the economic valuation of environmental and social costs of food wastage. Forecast scenarios will detail how trimming wastage by given ratios would affect the current FWF and the estimated need to increase food production by 60% in 2050. The project will also analyze how specific food systems would need to be redesigned (marginally or drastically), depending on the wastage reduction targets and investments (see Concept Note 2).
  • An E-forum discussing full-cost accounting of food wastage is planned for October 2013.
The ultimate objective of this project is to communicate that investments in food wastage reduction is the most logical step in the pursuit of sustainable production and consumption, including food security, climate change and other adverse environmental effects. To this end, public awareness materials targeting different stakeholders (e.g. consumers, companies, researchers, policy-makers) will be developed.

Huge Victory Against GMO's EU Validates GMO Cancer study



Please Share this vid, thanks. A huge win against GMO's and Monsanto this week as the European Food Safety Authority validates a very disturbing French GMO study linking GMO's to cancer. The agency recently vindicated Professor Gilles-Eric Seralini's published paper on the long-term health damage caused by eating Monsanto's genetically-modified (GM) NK603 corn, affirming that the study is, in fact, valid.
Monsanto has claimed the study is not valid, because the methodology used was flawed, we now know that the methodology was not flawed and Monsanto has once again been proven incorrect.

Link to the new guidelines, these NEW guidelines include most of the methods that Professor Seralini used, this is a clear validation of the Professor's methodolody http://www.efsa.europa.eu/en/efsajour...
