(ZHE) Over the weekend ZeroHedge posted about how the media’s coverage of Trump and Clinton’s health had become “outright bizarre” (see “American Electorate Loses As Partisan Media Coverage Of Candidate Health Turns Outright Bizarre“). They also asked whether Google had taken measures to censor searches related to Hillary’s health condition (see “Is Google Censoring Search Results To Protect Hillary?“). Turns out that the Huffington Post may have just joined in on the bizarre behavior by censoring a journalist with the audacity to question Hillary’s health.
Scientists have developed a tiny device the size of a postage stamp that can kill 99.99 percent of bacteria in water in just 20 minutes.
Exposing contaminated water to sunlight can naturally clean it up – because UV rays blitz germs – but this distillation process usually takes up to 48 hours to complete. Instead, this new gadget harnesses a broader spectrum of the Sun’s rays to speed everything up.
Over the years, lithium-ion batteries have seen an improvement in their performance, but they still die after several hundred recharges. The researchers at University of California, Irvine, have invented a new nanowire-based battery material that could last forever and can be recharged hundreds of thousands of times.
There’s an old saying in neuroscience: neurons that fire together wire together. This means the more you run a neuro-circuit in your brain, the stronger that circuit becomes. This is why, to quote another old saw, practice makes perfect. The more you practice piano, or speaking a language, or juggling, the stronger those circuits get.
The zika psyop continues…
An aerial insecticide spraying campaign began at dawn this morning in Florida to kill mosquitoes that might be infected with the zika virus. The spray will cover a 10-mile area in Miami. Health officials claim the the chemical to be sprayed, an organophosphate neurotoxin called Naled, is “safe” to breathe and no one really needs to take any special measures while they are being sprayed like bugs (although it has been “recommended” that people with allergies stay inside).
Some of those “bad habits” of yours, like being messy, staying up late, and swearing, are actually indicators of high intelligence.
If you were like me, you grew up with some basic rules to follow and keep with you all the way into adulthood. “Don’t stay up too late.” “Keep your room clean.” Don’t swear so much.” (My parents actually told me not to swear at all, but some situations call for an F-bomb. Have you seen A Christmas Story?)
