Our solar system has moved up into the region where it is every 62 million years or so. When in this region earth typically gets hit by a Big Fucking Rock (BFR). That BFR then causes all life on planet earth to disappear with very few exceptions. but now the future goverment pension collectors at NASA have studied the movies from Hollywood and been inspired to have a plan. Keep it up Eco-Nazis. Save another fish with four spots instead of three. If we do not get our genetic code off this fucking rock we are on now it will all be in vain.

FDA shuts down 1,677 online pharmacies with NO supporting data or legal standing!
CNN — The prices may look tempting, but ordering from an online pharmacy is often a bad deal, according to Interpol and the U.S Food and Drug Administration,
Often? How often? How about some actual information such as; Out of 14 million online pharmacy transactions 400 of them were found to be counterfeit drugs that translates out to 0.0028%.
announcing a crackdown Thursday on thousands of websites.The FDA said it has shut down 1,677 sites for selling counterfeit or substandard medication, or for selling drugs without appropriate safeguards.
They like to lead with that scary counterfeit word but it is the bullshit catch all “other safeguards” that was almost exclusively used.
Other sites received regulatory warnings. Officials said they also arrested 58 people and seized more than $41 million worth of illegal medicines.
This is perfect. “illegal medicines” another bullshit catchall that describes perfectly legal medications, within date code, that some technical procedure was not complied with like having the shipping dock bonded.
Several sites had sleek interfaces and names that could easily be confused with legitimate pharmacy retailers. For example, the FDA shuttered Walgreens-Store.com; the well-known drugstore chain’s website is actually Walgreens.com.”It impacts consumers every day,” FDA Commissioner Margaret Hamburg told CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
“These products can have none of the active ingredient that people need for the treatment of their disease. They can have too much or too little of the ingredient; they can have toxic ingredients, and they can prevent patients form getting the actual medications that they badly need to treat their disease.”
Damm a real fact! They can! But How often you over paid, over protected, over pensioned waste of the taxpayers money?
The most common scams advertised popular drugs such as Viagra, Levitra, Celebrex and Avandaryl. The recent crackdown, labeled Pangea VI, involved the cooperation of more than 100 countries, according to Interpol.Hamburg acknowledged it’s difficult to know the scope of the online pharmacy problem but maintained, “We still do have the safest drug supply in the world.”At some locations, FDA and customs agents use handheld scanners with ultraviolet and infrared radiation to detect suspicious packaging and ingredients. Confirmation of whether a product contains fake ingredients must be done in a laboratory. The scanners are in use at a handful of locations that handle a large volume of imports such as the Los Angeles International Airport.The FDA also works closely with private pharmaceutical companies, such as Pfizer, that run investigations and turn over evidence to law enforcement. Pfizer declined to say how much it spends on tracking counterfeits or how many people are working on the investigations.While counterfeit ingredients are not isolated to online sales, Hamburg told Gupta she believes the majority of counterfeits are sold through websites. There have been deaths and serious illnesses traced to counterfeit ingredients, but most of these cases are not linked to online sales, she said. Of course, unless a patient’s adverse reaction is dramatic the medication is usually not tested, so the vast majority of counterfeit ingredients likely go unnoticed.Many experts agree the problem is daunting. The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy recently performed an analysis of more than 10,000 websites, and found that 97% did not fully comply with state and federal regulations. It said 88% did not require a valid prescription, and almost half sold medicines lacking FDA approval.”It’s probably a multibillion dollar industry,” said Carmen Catizone, executive director of the pharmacy board group.Catizone said most of these sites are based overseas, with a common scam of site operators presenting themselves as Canadian to lure U.S. customers seeking more affordable medication from a trusted place.”The fact of the matter is very few, if any, of these sites are actually based in Canada or are Canadian,” Catizone said. “In fact, they are located in China, India, Pakistan, around the world.”The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy’s website features a list of approved online pharmacies as well as those to avoid.Hamburg said consumers should also watch for a few warning signs. “No. 1, the websites should ask for a valid prescription. If they don’t — beware.”She also said website pharmacies should have a licensed pharmacist available for consultation and should be located in the United States and licensed in the state where the website is registered.Beyond that, she said, the basics still apply. “If the costs are really low, if it seems too good to be true, it is too good to be true,” she said.
When the shit hits the fan here all the storm troopers, sheriffs, national guard, local police, highway patrol and their bosses will be amped up on some form of amphetamine.
They are going to be ZOMBIES with body armor. Head shots required.
The USA uses it to this day. Why is this a surprise.
In 1972, Heinrich Böll won the Nobel Prize for literature. But before he became a writer of novels, short stories, and essays, Böll was a writer of letters. During his early 20s, which also happened to be during World War II, he was conscripted into the German military. And as he fought, serving in France, Romania, Hungary, and finally the Soviet Union, Böll corresponded with his family back in Cologne. The letter he sent on May 20, 1940, contained not just an update, but a request. “Perhaps you could obtain some more Pervitin for my supplies?” Just one of these pills, Böll explained, was as effective at keeping him alert as several cups of coffee. Plus, when he took Pervitin, he was able to forget, temporarily, about the trials and terrors of war. He could — for a while, at least — be happy.Pervitin was the early version of what we know today as crystal meth. And it was fitting that a German soldier would become addicted to the stuff: the drug, Der Spiegel notes, first became popular in Germany, brought to market by the then-Berlin-based drugmaker Temmler Werke. And almost immediately, the German army physiologist Otto Ranke realized its military value: not only could the methamphetamine compound keep fighters pilots, in particular alert on little sleep; it could also keep an entire military force feeling euphoric. Meth, Spiegel puts it, “was the ideal war drug.”7983133268_bf4e8368a6_m.jpgAnd it was, as such, put to wide use. The Wehrmacht, Germany’s World War II army, ended up distributing millions of the Pervitin tablets to soldiers on the front they called it “Panzerschokolade,” or “tank chocolate”. The air force gave the tablets to its flyers in this case, it was “pilot’s chocolate” or “pilot’s salt”. Hitler himself was given intravenous injections of methamphetamine by his personal physician, Theodor Morell. The pill, however, was the more common form of the drug. All told, between April and July of 1940, more than 35 million three-milligram doses of Pervitin were manufactured for the German army and air force.News of meth’s powers, unsurprisingly, spread. British papers began reporting on German soldiers’ use of a “miracle pill.” Soon, Allied bomber pilots were experimenting with the drug. Their tests ended quickly, though; while the soldiers who used pilot’s salt were able to focus on their flying in the short term … they also became agitated, aggressive, and impaired in their judgment over the long.The Germans would notice the same side effects — the side effects thanks, Breaking Bad! we know so well today. Short rest periods, it turned out, weren’t enough to compensate for long stretches of wakefulness. Some soldiers who used the meth died of heart failure; others ended up committing suicide during psychotic phases. Many others simply became addicted to the stimulant, leading to all the familiar symptoms of addiction and withdrawal: sweating, dizziness, hallucination, depression. Leonardo Conti, the Third Reich’s top health official, moved to limit use of the drug among his forces. He was, however, unsuccessful.As late as the 1960s, in fact, the Temmler Werke was supplying the armies of both East and West Germany with its Pervitin pills. And it wasn’t until the 1970s that West Germany’s postwar army, the Bundeswehr, finally removed the drug from its medical arsenal. East Germany’s National People’s Army wouldn’t follow suit until 1988.Via Der Spiegel, hat tip Digg.
It’s called sovereignty, you fucking globalists.
MARGARET WARNER: For more on the legal issues surrounding Snowden’s fugitive travels, I’m joined by David Laufman, a former Department of Justice prosecutor and CIA analyst. He now works in private practice.
And, Mr. Laufman, welcome.
DAVID LAUFMAN, Former Justice Department Official: Thank you.
MARGARET WARNER: So, explain how this could happen. I mean, here’s a guy that the United States has been trying to get for 10 days. How was he able to leave Hong Kong, even after, according to the White House, Hong Kong had been informed about the — quote — “status” of this travel documents, in other words, that they were no longer valid?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Well, there’s a few possibilities.
One is that Hong Kong permitted him to travel on his U.S. passport, notwithstanding the fact that the U.S. told Hong Kong that it had revoked the passport. Another possibility is that he was issued some kind of travel document, either a laissez-passer or a refugee document that enabled him to get on a plane from Hong Kong to Moscow.
MARGARET WARNER: Now, that is in fact what WikiLeaks, who has jumped into this case, and is assisting him, said, that he got some sort of a refugee travel document issued by Ecuador. What is that?
DAVID LAUFMAN: It’s a document recognized in international law that a third country can issue to someone who is either a stateless person or who has been found to have some refugee status to enable them to get to someplace where they can be in a protected status.
MARGARET WARNER: So, according — The New York Times had an interesting story today about how Hong Kong actually facilitated his departure, gave him security on the way to the airport, knew full well he was leaving, was very happy he was leaving.
Despite the fact that the U.S. had made an extradition request, explain the international law here. I mean, was China violating this treaty by doing this? How binding are these treaties?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Well, the treaties are binding. The question is, does the treaty apply by its terms? So were the offenses Mr. Snowden was charged with criminally in the United States extraditable under the U.S.-Hong Kong treaty is sort of the first level of analysis.
And it remains unclear as to whether espionage-related offenses having to do with disclosing classified information or the theft of classified information were crimes under Hong Kong law. Only if they were crimes under Hong Kong law would Hong Kong have been under a legal obligation under the treaty to extradite him.
And there’s also an exception under that treaty that exists under other U.S. extradition treaties, like, for example, with Ecuador, where if the character and the conduct is of a political nature, then the sending country, Hong Kong, for example, is excused from its obligation to extradite.
MARGARET WARNER: And, in fact, aren’t there a lot of cases in history in which fugitives, despite having been indicted in their home country, despite extradition treaties, live on the lam for decades overseas?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Well, there have been cases like that, including in the context of an espionage case, the most prominent of which probably was a case involving a man named Philip Agee in the early 1980s, who left the CIA, publicly disclosed the names of undercover CIA officers and agents, went on the lam overseas.
The State Department revoked his passport. He then went on an odyssey of existence in several countries, culminating ultimately in his settlement in Cuba, where he died several years ago.
MARGARET WARNER: But did he always go to countries that had bad relations with the U.S. essentially?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Actually, in his case, he was in West Germany for a period of time, I believe.
But ultimately countries have substantial discretion as to whether to extradite, even if there are treaties in effect, because of the sovereignty associated with their own host government law enforcement.
MARGARET WARNER: So now the administration, the president, the secretary of state are putting big pressure on the Russians to expel him, make sure he can only come back to the United States. What leverage does the United States have in that case?
DAVID LAUFMAN: The only real leverage we have in the Russian government is political suasion.
There is no extradition treaty between the United States and Russia. So, we are bringing to bear the full force of our diplomatic pressure with the Russian government, law enforcement contacts, diplomatic contacts, intelligence contacts, to persuade the Russians that it’s in the interest of U.S.-Russian relations for the Russians to detain him and deport him to the United States under a pending U.S. arrest warrant.
MARGARET WARNER: And, in fact, the White House spokesman made a big point today about reciprocity, that there have been cases in which the U.S. has honored Russian — is that often an operative principle?
DAVID LAUFMAN: It can be because there have been times when, you know, we may receiving Russian extradition requests in cases that we may think are on the margins. And we may believe, in the interest of the U.S.-Russian relationships, to make the extradition.
MARGARET WARNER: What is at stake for the United States in this in apprehending him?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Well, I think, from the Obama administration’s standpoint, the most critical thing at stake is the potential disclosure of additional classified information by Mr. Snowden, who reportedly remains in possession of three or four laptop computers and terabytes of data that he obtained from his access to classified system.
So, from the standpoint of preventing the occurrence of any further harm, the most important urgency is to take him off the street, so to speak, and deprive him of the ability to further disclose classified information, secondarily to bring him back to the United States and bring him to justice.
MARGARET WARNER: But, of course, it’s not known whether — I mean, if someone is this good a computer hacker, he might well have set up some backdoor. I mean, he well have conveyed the information, if not to someone, but in a form that if he’s apprehended — we really don’t much about this, do we?
DAVID LAUFMAN: We have no idea what he has done with the, you know, classified information he’s in possession of, the digital copies of information. Anything could have happened over the next several — the last several days.
MARGARET WARNER: Now, if the Russians let him go, the countries he’s mentioned wanting to go to are Ecuador, Cuba and Venezuela. Again, the U.S. has put Latin American countries are notice, you shouldn’t accept him.
DAVID LAUFMAN: Right.
MARGARET WARNER: Is the same kind of — the same caveats apply, that really, whatever the treaties may be, these are political decisions?
DAVID LAUFMAN: Well, there’s always a political element to whether the host country extradites. Sometimes, the political element lags behind the legal piece. In this case, politics is going to be driving legal judgments to a large extent.
If he goes to Ecuador, there’s a U.S. extradition treaty with Ecuador. It requires that whatever he was charged with here also be a crime in Ecuador. There’s this political offense exception I described before. And then there’s the whole politics overlaying the U.S.-Ecuador relationship, which is fraught with tension over U.S. involvement in Latin America.
MARGARET WARNER: Not to mention Cuba and Venezuela.
Well, David Laufman, thank you so much.
DAVID LAUFMAN: Thank you.

Mexican Amusement Park Offers Fake Border Crossing Attraction
By: Irina Zhorov, Fronteras
An unusual amusement park attraction in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo offers visitors the thrills and chills of an illegal border crossing. The attraction takes visitors through a fake United States-Mexico border, complete with fake smugglers and fake border patrol agents.
The aim is to dissuade would be migrants from making the trip. The coyote, or smuggler, leading this simulated illegal border crossing used the name Simon and wore a face mask. Before setting off, he addressed his charges that evening, about 40 students from a private school in Mexico City.
“Tonight we’re going to talk about migration,” Simon said in Spanish. “But for us it isn’t just something rhetorical, but rather the opposite. Because we have endured, we have suffered, of hunger, thirst, injustice, heat, cold, we have suffered from everything.”
Then, under the cover of night, Simon herded them into the woods, toward the fake frontera.
Listen to the report, including sounds from the Parque EcoAlberto.
The actual U.S.-Mexico border is nearly 800 miles away from the Parque EcoAlberto. The park is part of the indigenous HñaHñu community. Tourist can enjoy other recreational attractions like hot springs and rappelling, in addition to the recently added fake border crossing.
But for those who want to simulate the experience of fleeing across the border, without the real danger, the latter attraction is for you. For three hours, tourist groups endure sirens, dogs, chases and the fake border patrol yelling threats.
Maribel Garcia works as an administrator for the park. She says the purpose of the Night Walk is simple.
“Our objective is to stop the immigration that exists amongst our citizens, principally from the state of Mexico to the U.S.,” Garcia said in Spanish.
Garcia says traditionally this region subsisted on agriculture, but that wasn’t bringing the community what it needed.
“Because we didn’t have sewer systems, light, telephone, roads,” she said.
So people went north. The HñaHñu community has lost about 80 percent of its population to the U.S., Garcia estimates, mainly to Arizona and Nevada. Garcia says it was the HñaHñu youth returning home after crossing the real border who thought up this tourist attraction as a way to create income for the community and encourage others to stay in Mexico.

Titi, who also works as a coyote on the Night Walks, was emphatic that it was not training for future generations.
“We try to help people so that they won’t leave,” Titi said in Spanish. “It’s time to create some employment, to work with our own and regenerate everything, or at least what we can, even though it might be slow going.”
The HñaHñu’s efforts are well timed. According to one estimate, for first time since the 1960s there is net-zero migration from Mexico to the U.S. Increased border patrol, stricter laws in the U.S., rising smuggling fees, violence in the desert and the struggling U.S. economy are keeping more Mexicans at home.
Garcia, the administrator, is hoping the Night Walks convince youth in particular to put their energies into their home communities.
“The youth that already have something figured out, that already have something visualized for the future, they’re the youth that in that moment think, ‘How difficult,'” she said.

The tours cost the equivalent of about $20. The visitors are typically middle-class Mexicans or, like tonight, students from private schools — in other words, not the most likely group to attempt an illegal crossing into the U.S.
Still, there were some who had been thinking about it. Over tea and sweet breads at the end of the walk, Jazmin Arely Moreno Alcazar said she got the message.
“It’s not worth risking it because if we can’t stand a few hours, we won’t be able to stand days. Because it’s very ugly,” Alcazar said in Spanish.
Garcia said it’s difficult to quantify how effective the tours are for other visitors. But as the park’s tourist offerings expand and the number of visitors grow, she said there is a new hope that enough money will come in and that the attraction will encourage more community members to stay put.

THAT’S RIGHT ONLY FUCKING WHITE CRACKERS CAN BE RACIST.
Mr Zimmerman (29), who has Hispanic heritage, has pleaded innocent to the charges of second degree murder. His lawyers contend he fired his gun only after being assaulted.
Zimmerman? Zimmerman is a cholo? Yea and Goldstein is a fucking Eskimo.
“There are no monsters here,” Don West, a defense lawyer, said in his opening statement, denying the contention that his client had chased and then confronted Trayvon, who was black, in part because of his race.

Isn’t feminism great!
BUT THE ACTUAL STUDY IS HERE :
Dear Lady Love,
The other night some friends and I were talking over a glass of wine and the topic of sexual fantasies came up. We began sharing some of the desires we’ve been keeping to ourselves, or that we’ve only shared or experienced with our partner. It was interesting to learn that most of them felt ashamed about their fantasies. They believed that the things they wanted to try were too over the top, or that their boyfriend wouldn’t find them exciting.
One friend, who is very dominant outside of the bedroom, has been in a relationship for five years and never had the confidence to tell her man what she fantasizes about — or even how to talk to him about it.
She was absolutely horrified at the thought of admitting to the things she thought about while pleasuring herself, such as being spanked or completely and utterly dominated. It has even gotten to the point that, during sex, she is unable to reach orgasm without creating an elaborate fantasy in her mind (and it’s usually with someone who isn’t her partner) because she finds it difficult to associate him with being dominant.
It’s only when she feels like she has no control, that she can relax and reach orgasm.
How can she be more open about her fantasies with her partner?
Her Problem, My Curiosity
LETS LOOK AT SOME OF THE BULLSHIT:
That said, she may feel like she is pressuring her other half or will potentially offend him by asking him to explore new sexual ground. Too bad!
AND SEE HOW IT FLIES THE OTHER WAY!
That said, HE may feel like HE is pressuring HIS other half or will potentially offend HER by asking HER to explore new sexual ground. Too bad!
THE MARK OF A FEMI-NAZI!
Here’s the thing to remember: Most men are pigs
This is a two-way street, so she also needs to be open to his fantasies as well. She needs to give him the same respect he’s giving her. This doesn’t mean she should try something that doesn’t turn her on, but there is a polite way of saying, “I’m not comfortable doing that,” without sounding judgmental.
DO WHAT I WANT CHUMP AND FOR YOUR NEEDS YOU CAN GO TO HELL!
97% OF THE AVAILABLE WOMEN ON PLANET EARTH ARE OUTSIDE OF THE USA.
Many, many women are asexual and don’t even know it. unless someone puts in all the effort they would be content with jamming the shampoo bottle in and out that 2 days of the months when they are most fertile.
I do not find visual stimuli to be in any way arousing. I’m specifically turned off by the sight of other people having sex, and the mere sight of a naked, attractive man—even my partner, for whom I do have a strong sexual appetite—has never gotten me in the mood.
Global BULLSHIT continues on. The Eco-nazies cannot accept that their religion has lied to them. Global Warming.. no let’s change the name to Climate Change… no not enough impact let’s change it to Climate Crisis.
All while the rest of the scientific community distances themselves from these frauds because none of this is any more scientific than witchcraft or blood letting.
Dumb Fucks should just shut up. Tax carbon credits. Fuck you.
We are in for 30 years of COLD assholes. and we are going to keep every one of your names for the cleansing of our scientific community.
Anyone discussing this subject and not addressing Landscheidt cycles is just not credible.
Part II– How does Climate Change Affect the World?
Provided by the Fort Independence Environmental Climate Change Working Group
Chair: Dennis Mattinson
1.How can a change of one or two degrees in global average temperatures have an impact on our lives?
Changing the average global temperature by even a degree or two can lead to serious consequences around the globe. For about every 2°F of warming, we can expect to see:
5—15% reductions in the yields of crops as currently grown
3—10% increases in the amount of rain falling during the heaviest precipitation events, which can increase flooding risks
5—10% decreases in stream flow in some river basins, including the Arkansas and the Rio Grande
200%—400% increases in the area burned by wildfire in parts of the western United States 
Global average temperatures have increased more than 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 100 years.  Many of the extreme precipitation and heat events that we have seen in recent years are consistent with what we would expect given this amount of warming.  Scientists project that Earth’s average temperatures will rise between 2 and 12 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100. 
2. Do emissions of carbon dioxide from human activities have a big impact on Earth’s climate?
Plants, oceans, and soils release and absorb large quantities of carbon dioxide as a part of the Earth’s natural carbon cycle. These natural emissions and absorptions of carbon dioxide on average balance out over time. However, the carbon dioxide from human activities is not part of this natural balance. Ice core measurements reveal that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are higher than they have been for at least 800,000 years.  The global warming that has been observed in recent decades was caused by elevated levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, due primarily to human activities. 
3. Will a small rise in sea level affect people (even in the United States)?
A small rise in sea level will affect many people, even in the United States. The amount of sea level rise expected to occur as a result of climate change will increase the risk of coastal flooding for millions to hundreds of millions of people around the world, many of whom would have to permanently leave their homes.  Global sea level has risen approximately 9 inches, on average, in the last 140 years.  This has already put some coastal homes, beaches, roads, bridges, and wildlife at risk.  By the year 2100, sea level is expected to rise another 1.5 to 3 feet.  Rising seas will make coastal storms and the associated storm surges more frequent and destructive. For example, in New York City what is currently termed a once-in-a-century coastal flooding event could occur as frequently as once per decade.

4. What are the effects of Climate Change on world life?
Life on Earth is profoundly affected by the planet’s climate. Animals, plants, and other living beings around the globe are moving, adapting, and, in some cases, dying as a direct or indirect result of environmental shifts associated with our changing climate—disrupting intricate interactions among Earth’s species, with profound implications for the natural systems on which humans depend. Climate change is happening on a global scale, but the ecological impacts are often local. – (COMMITTEE ON ECOLOGICAL IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE)-
June 21, 2013 (HOUSTON, Tex.) (WLS) — Researchers in Texas say they have discovered a built-in ‘clock’ of sorts that helps certain maintain a plant’s freshness.
Scientists at Rice University in Houston set out to study the circadian cycles of day and night and how it affects plants against insects.
Time-lapse footage shows cabbage stored in light and dark cycles remained fresh longer than those kept in constant light.
They also found specific chemicals released by the cabbage during its circadian cycle.
“These chemicals are important anti-cancer compounds,” said Dr. Janet Braam, a Rice University researcher. “They’ve been shown to have activity against cancer growth.”
The researchers say their findings *could* suggest that storing produce in dark and light cycles will keep it fresh longer.

Produce Exposed to Light is More Nutritious
Study finds that all-dark environments stunt antioxidant production.
June 21, 2013
How vegetables are stored could affect their nutritional value, new research from Rice University and the University of California, Davis shows.
Produce, as it turns out, has circadian rhythms like humans. If those day-night cycles are replicated after harvest—that is, if vegetables are exposed to some light rather than stored in dark boxes or refrigerators—they could be more nutritious.
“Vegetables and fruits don’t die the moment they are harvested,” said lead researcher and Rice University biologist Janet Braam. Ph.D. “They respond to their environment for days, and we found we could use light to coax them to make more cancer-fighting antioxidants.”
Braam and her team first entrained, or threw off, the circadian rhythms of cabbage, spinach, carrots and other produce, a process that essentially induced jet lag in the produce. They then exposed the vegetables to light and dark cycles in a controlled lab.
The restoration of day-night cycles led to the accumulation of metabolites, compounds that help the plant resist pests and, when consumed, have strong anticancer properties, according to the study.
The findings, published this week in Current Biology, suggest that vegetables and fruits housed in all-dark conditions may be less nutritious than those stored in open environments or exposed to some type of light. To us, this sounds like another reason to visit a farmers market this weekend.
High Fruit and Vegetable Consumption May Lengthen Life
Now, he is the first child in the U.S. to have an auditory brain stem implant.
Doctors at UNC Chapel Hill Hospital placed the implant directly on the brain stem.
Medical officials describe it a microphone and a receiver: the implant if the receiver, which takes sound into the brain stem.
“Our audiology team at UNC Hospital was just phenomenal,” Len Clamp told CNN Friday morning.
Grayson’s mother, Nicole, said it has been a long road to get here.
“A huge relief for me because it was a long journey getting there and I knew it would work, but just seeing it work was just a huge, the culmination of a long journey to get there,” she said.
As for how Grayson is adjusting since that first sound only a month ago, his father said he is doing great.
“As long as he is enjoying the sound that he’s getting, then the plan is give it to him, because he needs to experience it,” said Len Clamp.
The procedure has been done mostly in Europe up to this point.
The Food and Drug Administration approved the implant in the U.S. for only 10 children, five who, like Grayson, were born without nerves and five who suffered traumatic damage.
Women who took iron supplements during pregnancy had a significantly lower risk of anemia and low-birth-weight babies, according to a large meta-analysis.
Iron supplementation was associated with a 50% reduction in the hazard for anemia and a 19% reduction in the risk of low birth weight.
Supplement use during pregnancy also was associated with a 50% to 60% reduction in the risk of iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia. Women who used iron supplements also had a 16% lower risk of preterm birth, but the difference did not achieve statistical significance, Batool A. Haider, of Harvard School of Public Health, and co-authors reported online in BMJ.
Each 10 mg increase in daily iron was associated with a significant increase in birth weight and a significantly lower risk of preterm birth.
“Daily prenatal use of iron substantially improved birth weight in a linear dose-response fashion, probably leading to a reduction in risk of low birth weight,” the authors concluded. “An improvement in prenatal mean hemoglobin concentration linearly increased birth weight.”
Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia during pregnancy, accounting for more than half of pregnancy-associated anemia in regions of the world that have fewer alternative causes. Clinical trials have shown that prenatal iron supplementation increases hemoglobin concentration but have not conclusively demonstrated a beneficial effect on birth outcomes, the authors noted in their introduction.
In an effort to clarify the role of supplemental iron during pregnancy, Haider and colleagues performed a meta-analysis of randomized trials to determine the overall effect of iron use on maternal hematologic status, morbidity, and birth outcomes. They performed a separate analysis of large prospective cohort studies to examine the association between prenatal anemia and birth outcomes.
Data for the meta-analyses came from a literature review covering the period from 1966 to May 31, 2012. The authors included randomized trials that evaluated the effect of daily oral iron, with or without folic acid, on maternal hematologic status, morbidity, and birth outcomes.
The analysis of observational studies included prospect cohort studies that assessed the association of baseline maternal anemia with birth outcomes. The authors included studies that defined anemia as hemoglobin <100 g/L or <115 g/L. When hemoglobin was not reported but hematocrit was, investigators estimated hemoglobin from hematocrit values.
The analyses included data from 48 randomized trials involving 17,793 women and 44 cohort studies that included 1,851,682 women. The results showed that iron supplementation was associated with:
4.59 g/L increase in hemoglobin versus control groups
A relative risk of 0.50 for maternal anemia versus control groups
A 41% lower relative risk of iron deficiency
A 60% lower relative risk of iron deficiency anemia
A relative risk of 0.81 for low birth weight
Maternal iron supplementation or fortification was associated with a relative risk of 0.84 for preterm birth, which did not achieve statistical significance (95% CI 0.68-1.03).
The cohort studies showed that anemia in the first or second trimester was associated with a significantly higher risk of low birth weight (OR 1.29, 95% CI 1.09-1.53) and preterm birth (OR 1.21, 95% CI 1.13-1.30).
An exposure-response analysis showed that every 10 mg/d increase in iron (to a maximum of 66 mg/d) was associated with a 12% decrease in the risk of maternal anemia (RR 0.88, 95% CI 0.84-0.92, P<0.001 for linear trend). Additionally each 10 mg increase in daily iron was associated with 15.1-g increase in birth weight (P=0.005) and a 3% decrease in the likelihood of low birth weight (P<0.001).
Birth weight increased by 14.0 g for every 1 g/L increase in maternal mean hemoglobin (P=0.002).
Duration of iron use did not influence outcomes. Mean hemoglobin was not associated with low birth weight, preterm birth, duration of gestation, small-for-gestational-age births, or birth length.

Former TWA Flight 800 investigators caught with panties down and try to cover their ass by asking for a new probeAuthor: SupremePundit
The fucking liars are about to be caught on TV and NOW they want to have a new probe. Well how about a probe up your ass. Before more spin gets put on this feeble attempt to cover their assess it is posted here for historical reasons.

MINEOLA — Former investigators are pushing to reopen the probe into the 1996 crash of TWA Flight 800 off the coast of New York, saying new evidence points to the often-discounted theory that a missile strike may have downed the jumbo jet.
The New York-to-Paris flight crashed July 17, 1996, just minutes after the jetliner took off from John F. Kennedy Airport, killing all 230 people aboard.
The effort to reopen the probe is being made in tandem with the release next month of a documentary that features the testimony of former investigators who raise doubts about the National Transportation Safety Board’s conclusion that the crash was caused by a center fuel tank explosion, probably caused by a spark from a short-circuit in the wiring.
“We don’t know who fired the missile,” said Jim Speer, an accident investigator for the Air Line Pilots Association, one of those seeking a new review of the probe. “But we have a lot more confidence that it was a missile.”
In a petition filed Wednesday seeking to reopen the probe, they say they have “reviewed the FAA radar evidence along with new evidence not available to the NTSB during the official investigation and contend that the NTSB’s probable cause determination is erroneous and should be reconsidered and modified accordingly.”
Those calling for a review of the investigation include former NTSB accident investigator Hank Hughes and Bob Young, a former senior accident investigator for the now-defunct TWA . Tom Stalcup, a physicist and co-founder of a group called Flight 800 Independent Researchers Organization, also questions the NTSB’s original findings and is featured prominently in the documentary, which is slated to air on the 17th anniversary of the crash next month.
The NTSB issued a statement Wednesday morning saying it is aware of the upcoming documentary.
“All petitions for reconsideration are thoroughly reviewed, and a determination is usually made within about 60 days,” spokeswoman Kelly Nantel said. “While the NTSB rarely re-investigates issues that have already been examined, our investigations are never closed and we can review any new information not previously considered by the board.”
She noted the TWA Flight 800 investigation lasted four years.
“Investigators took great care reviewing, documenting and analyzing facts and data and held a five-day hearing to gather additional facts before determining the probable cause of the accident during a two-day board meeting.”
Robert Francis, the former vice chairman of the NTSB who headed the investigation, declined to comment.
The former investigators calling for a new probe say new evidence that a missile may have taken down the jet includes analysis of radar of the jetliner.
Speculation of a missile strike began almost immediately after the crash. Theories that an errant missile may have been fired from a U.S. military vessel were widely refuted, but conjecture about a shoulder-fired missile launched by terrorists in a small boat has never completely gone away.
The petitioners contend that the testimony of more than 200 witnesses who reported seeing streaks of light headed toward the plane should be reconsidered. The NTSB said after the first investigation that it found no evidence of a missile strike. It explained that what witnesses likely saw was the jetliner pitching upward in the first few moments after the explosion, but some witnesses still maintain that the streak of light they saw emanated from the waterline and zoomed upward toward the plane.
The petition filed with the NTSB to reopen the probe claims “new analyses of the FAA radar evidence demonstrate that the explosion that caused the crash did not result from a low-velocity fuel-air explosion as the NTSB has determined. Rather, it was caused by a detonation or high-velocity explosion.”
John Seaman, the longtime leader of an organization of TWA 800 victims’ families, noted there have been several attempts over the years to reopen the investigation.
“Unless something was to develop that would be very clear and compelling, then a lot of these interested parties are not really helpful,” said Seaman, whose niece died on the flight . He spoke to The Associated Press in a telephone interview from upstate New York on Tuesday, ahead of the formal filing of the petition.
“They reopen wounds,” he said of the petitioners. “Personally I can’t keep going over it again and again. I think most families feel that way.”
The documentary airs on the EPIX premium television channel. An EPIX spokeswoman declined to say how much the filmmakers were paid for the documentary.
