End of the line for the supermarket checkout: The bell tolls for tills with birth of new shop-and-go phone scanner

1 hour 7 min ago

‘Can you imagine popping into a supermarket, picking up what you want from the shelves then marching out again without so much as breaking your stride? Well that day is just around the corner.
Sainsbury’s has come up with an app that could finally kill off the drudgery of standing in a checkout queue to pay for your shopping.
The supermarket is testing technology that will allow customers to scan shopping on their smartphones, then simply leave the store.
The cost of the goods will be deducted directly from their bank account or credit card via their phone.
Sainsbury’s earlier this month tested a prototype of checkout-free shopping in its store at Euston Station in London.
The site was chosen because most customers there are in a hurry to catch trains and keen to rush through the shop. In the trial, shoppers used a special app on their phone to buy a ‘meal deal’ consisting of three items: a sandwich, a drink and a snack, without having to queue.’

Cosmic ray mystery may have been solved - they come from another galaxy

1 hour 10 min ago

‘Scientists studying the origin of cosmic rays that bombard the Earth from the heavens have been perplexed for half a century. Now they may finally have an answer – and it’s intergalactic.
The mysterious high-energy rays are radiation consisting of protons and the nuclei of atoms such as hydrogen and iron. It’s also quite rare for them to reach Earth, even traveling at just under the speed of light.
So rare are they, that only about one per square kilometer per year strikes our planet, and as such, a giant observatory is needed to detect them. That’s where the Pierre Auger Observatory comes in.
The collaboration of over 400 scientists from 18 countries centers around the observatory, the largest cosmic ray detector ever built. The massive complex in Argentina covers an area of 3,000 square km and houses an impressive 1,600 detectors that spot the rays when they hit the atmosphere.’

A Brief History of Failed End Time Predictions

1 hour 14 min ago

‘What can we expect the day after the ‘end of the world’? According to wiki, there have been 183 end of the world predictions that have failed. Many of these were prophesied by religious zealots through fear propaganda.
Here are just a few of them:
In 1284, Pope Innocent III (d. 1216) predicted that the world would end 666 years after the rise of Islam. (do you see how long the divide and conquer principle has been going on?)
In 1658, Christopher Columbus claimed that the world was created in 5343 BCE, and would last 7000 years. Assuming no year zero, that means the end would come in 1658.
Mathematician Jacob Bernoulli predicted a comet would destroy the earth on April 5, 1719.
The newly formed Seventh Day Adventists, a group founded by former Millerites, predicted the Second Coming would be in 1874.’

More than 40 families pull children from school that forced transgender lesson on five-year-olds

1 hour 19 min ago

‘Forty-one families have pulled 73 children from the elite Sacramento-area Rocklin Academy charter schools as the board continues to defend a kindergarten transgender lesson several parents say traumatized their 5-year-olds and that parents weren’t told about beforehand.
A mother who pulled her son from Grade 6 and daughter from Grade 3 at Rocklin Academy Gateway, where the incident took place, has kept a tally of parents who’ve done likewise.
“It was just the tipping point for most families,” the parent, who asked her name not be published, told LifeSiteNews.
Some parents pulled their kids “solely for this,” while other had “multiple reasons, but yes, this was part of everyone’s reason,” she said.
The controversy erupted after a lesson in which the boy appeared in girl’s clothes and was reintroduced to his kindergarten classmates as a girl.’

Vaccine Law removed liability just as 'Vaccination' Surreptitiously Changed to 'Genetic Engineering'

1 hour 25 min ago

‘The World Health Organization, run by the Rockefellers, admits something big happened to vaccines.
DNA vaccines
“Vaccination consists of stimulating the immune system with an infectious agent, or components of an infectious agent, modified in such a manner that no harm or disease is caused, but ensuring that when the host is confronted with that infectious agent, the immune system can adequately neutralize it before it causes any ill effect. ….
“Recently, a radically new approach to vaccination has been developed ….”
That’s DNA vaccines. That’s vaccines that alter people’s DNA. Or put more bluntly put, that is vaccines that genetically engineer people by altering their DNA.
The name – “vaccination” – remained the same, but the technology drastically changed, with no word to doctors or the public that the vaccines were now altering DNA
And DNA vaccines have never been approved for use in human beings.’

The Crazy Imbalance of Russia-gate

The core absurdity of the Russia-gate frenzy is its complete lack of proportionality. Indeed, the hysteria is reminiscent of Sen. Joe McCarthy warning that “one communist in the faculty of one university is one communist too many” or Donald Trump

The Alcohol Industry Doesn’t Want You To Understand The Link Between Drinking And Cancer

1 hour 44 min ago

‘The alcohol industry doesn’t want you to understand that alcohol consumption, even in moderate degrees, is strongly linked to the development of a number of cancers. Much like the resistance put up by the tobacco industry, the alcohol lobby and powerful in industry trade groups are attempting to persuade the public that the risks are insignificant, although evidence continues to mount.
In a recent study undertaken by global British-led team of experts, the alcohol industry was examined for its efforts to obfuscate and downplay the connection between alcohol consumption and cancer, especially breast cancer. Looking at the organizations that most impact public opinion, the study uncovers what the manipulation of public information looks like.’

Despite Ban, GE Corn Contaminates 90 Percent Of Corn Products In Mexico

1 hour 52 min ago

‘In case you thought GMOs hadn’t quite proliferated most food products – well, in the 20 years that they have been commercially available for free trade, GMOs have and blanketed the world like smallpox – pushing out the the very fabric of Mexico. Interestingly, it is currently illegal to cultivate GMOs in the open fields of Mexico, adding a twist to the story….
Recently a team of researchers were shocked to find that 90% of Mexican tortillas tested contained traces of genetically engineered corn. Not just tortillas, though, but pretty much the entire staple of the Mexican diet. Although our readers may not be surprised, imagine the amazement of researchers who believe that the invisible boundaries between conventional corn fields and genetically engineered crops magically keep transgenic material safely away. Imagine the surprise of Mexicans, who live in a country where it’s illegal to grow GE corn.’

Researchers develop AI that can spot signs of Alzheimer's a DECADE before human doctors

1 hour 56 min ago

‘Doctors are working hard to detect Alzheimer’s disease sooner and sooner, but it looks like artificial intelligence has them beat.
Researchers have developed an AI that is able to detect the neurodegenerative disease – which leads to loss of memory and cognitive functions – almost 10 years earlier than doctors can by looking at symptoms alone.
Using MRI scans, the AI can detect early signs with 84 percent accuracy by identifying changes in how regions of the brain are connected.
‘Nowadays, cerebrospinal fluid analyses and brain imaging using radioactive tracers can tell us to what extent the brain is covered with plaques and tangles, and are able to predict relatively accurately who is at high risk of developing Alzheimer’s 10 years later,’ Mariana La Rocca, a researcher on the study, told New Scientist of the current detection methods.’

The Fertility Rate in Flint Has Plummeted After the Water Crisis

2 hours 1 min ago

‘Lead-poisoned water in Flint, Michigan, may have led to a significant drop in the number of babies born in the town, according a newly released study. Researchers found that after elected leaders decided to save money by switching the city’s water supply source in 2014, the area saw a precipitous rise in miscarriages and stillbirths, as well as infants born with “health complications.” The new report was undertaken to underscore the urgent necessity of a registry to trace health effects of the contaminated water and establish precisely how many residents were exposed.
Study co-authors Daniel Grossman of West Virginia University and David Slusky of the University of Kansas estimate that fetal deaths—that is, “pregnancies lasting more than 20 weeks that do not result in a live birth”—dropped by a “horrifyingly large” rate of 58 percent. (Abortions were not counted among the tally.) The number of live births fell by 12 percent.’

Another deadly earthquake hits Mexico

2 hours 22 min ago

‘A powerful earthquake has hit Mexico, killing five people, following two strong quakes that have already killed some 400 people and wrought massive destruction across the Latin American country.
The United States Geological Survey said a magnitude 6.2 quake struck on Saturday at a relatively shallow depth, with an epicenter near Juchitan, a tropical region of Oaxaca State.
Oaxaca had already been hard hit by a massive 8.1-magnitude tremor that struck on September 7.
Another strong earthquake hit Mexico last Tuesday.
The magnitude 7.1 quake flattened dozens of buildings and killed at least 307 people. The September 7 tremor, which was the strongest to hit the country in 85 years, killed at least 98 people.
Search operations for victims and survivors from the last two earthquakes were still ongoing when the Saturday tremor hit.’

Suicide soaring among US female veterans: Government study

2 hours 25 min ago

‘American female veterans are committing suicide at more than twice the rate of civilian women, a US government study has found.
The survey released by US Department for Veteran Affairs on Friday, showed that the ratio of women veterans who took their own lives increased from 1.88 in 2013 to 2.15 in 2014 compared to non-veteran females.
The report’s findings were based on data gathered from 50 US states along with Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia and analyzed more than 55 million people who left the US military between 1970 and 2014.
“These findings are deeply concerning, which is why I made suicide prevention my top clinical priority,” said VA Secretary Dr. David J. Shulkin.
Critics blasted Shulkin’s agency for attempting to throw the “suicide stats out the back door” by releasing the report at “the close of business” in late Friday, when it was likely to go unnoticed by most news outlets.’
