➜⇢➤These 8 Men Have As Much Money As Half The World
Just eight super-rich men hold the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of the world’s population, according to an analysis from the charity Oxfam released Sunday night.
Six of these billionaires, from Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people, are American entrepreneurs: Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Berkshire Hathaway chairman and CEO Warren Buffett, Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Rounding out the list are Carlos Slim, the Mexican tycoon, and Amancio Ortega, the Spanish founder of a retail conglomerate that includes clothing chain Zara. Together their net wealth ― assets minus debts ― amounts to $426 billion. https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/income-inequality-oxfam_n_58792e6ee4b0b3c7a7b13616?ri18n=true&fbclid=IwAR0BwiCSndsdzsX8VavMCJa7KbgmuusnThdJ-yrDa5alMux16NYBOm5nrts&guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZmFjZWJvb2suY29tLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAEka5w6oDdTB1ALw73khm643Di7Fd1McpqsOkUIWGHh9kGJopUB8TwugsGZKB9G9orXEAKWE_xBBGAsXuYVDIV_xvyatSJ20ecr1yMsUOd369FBcvxwVdog0zNX-kEo4imxzvQcyu7AZaPizivUd4mDMFcnrJ9hGlJFkJ5TFgkcL

Ali-R G There is an odd sense of permanence and immortality when it comes to the lives of Western governments. It’s as if at most only policies can be changed, but the frame of these governments will always remain. Protests have an entirely different meaning in the West than they do in Eastern countries.
Mary B It’s true that U.S. police received surplus equipment from the military and it’s scary. I confess I haven’t read the article yet but my answer to the question in the headline why people haven’t risen up? People are working all the time just to make ends meet and survive. Student loans and medical costs keep many people in economic survival mode. Media is under more and more corporate control and they don’t have time to try to investigate what’s really going on. And the national security state contributes to self censorship – many people won’t admit it but they are afraid to express political opinions. And we do not have fair elections – the system of campaign finance corrupts politicians.

It is reprehensible that authors are continuing to write text books with such a Eurocentric focus. What is even more troubling is that educators are either ignorant about the subject or administrators are playing too hard at being “sensitive.” As a teacher for 40 + years, I have always included our country’s unequal, often cruel, treatment of different races and cultures in my lessons. Children are more capable of recognizing mistreatment than we give them credit for, and their questions and ideas are a great starting point for allowing them to see patterns of behavior in the past and introduce solutions for the future.

They can’t erase the tears from the
land. The blood will forever cry out from all of nature. The more they try to cover it up the they will be
haunted by this horrible thing they did. Pilgrims invaded their land. And
murdered their people. Took the land from the Indians ,and called it theirs.
Then our government came in and removed the indians, and made worthless
promises to the Indians over and over up till today, they still are lying to
No, the trail of tears will never be forgotten. And their blood will haint American’s forever.

The trail of tears. Was the nicest way to say walk from one end of the country to the other. If you ever played the game Oregon trail where you die most of the time Along with your family. It was exactly like that but in reality they were erasing us, even now they erase us. The DNA companies walk around the fact they dont have enough original native American blood to compare it to. We had our culture erased then our lands then set off to die. We havent completely died out but very few of us can even say were are 100 percent Cherokee or Apache ext. I have the knowledge both my grandmother and grandfather came from neighboring villages in the mountains of Gatlinburg TN. We are still allowed with proof and permission to be varied in the bariel grounds but can not hold any ceremonies there. Some of The natives on the reservation think that is where they came from. I wish for my daughter to know the strength of nature how intune with it our ancestors were but I have so little to pass to her. All because we decided to help the pilgrims, even invented the alphabet we use today to make it easier to understand eachother. We were given what back?
As everyone knows, the Trail of Tears is a collection of routes the Native Americans followed when they were forced out of their traditional homes, near the east of the Mississippi river. It is estimated that by the end of this journey, sixty to ninety percent of the original population was dead.
This despicable rewrite of history quotes, “The first nations people’s agreed to move to different areas to make room for the new settlements”. This is anything but good for our young learners, who will be in the end, lied to.
➽➜⇢➤How Billionaires Become Billionaires
America has the greatest inequalities, highest mortality rate, most regressive taxes, and largest public subsidies for bankers and billionaires of any developed capitalist country.
In this essay we will discuss the socio-economic roots of inequalities and the relation between the concentration of wealth and the downward mobility of the working and salaried classes.
Contrary to the propaganda pushed by the business press, between 67% and 72% percent of corporations had zero tax liabilities after credits and exemptions … while their workers and employees paid between 25 – 30% in taxes. The rate for the minority of corporations, which paid any tax, was 14%.
According to the US Internal Revenue Service, billionaire tax evasion amounts to $458 billion dollars in lost public revenues every year – almost a trillion dollars every two years by this conservative estimate.
The largest US corporations sheltered over $2.5 trillion dollars in overseas tax havens where they paid no taxes or single digit tax rates. https://www.globalresearch.ca/how-billionaires-become-billionaires/5612125

But, as he notes, many of these constitutional violations are not unique to the Trump administration. They have been normalized by Democratic and Republican administrations. These long-standing violations are, for this reason, ignored by Democratic Party leaders seeking to impeach the president. They have chosen to focus exclusively on Trump’s attempt to get the Ukrainian president to open an investigation of Joe Biden and his son, Hunter, in exchange for $400 million in U.S. military aid and a visit by the Ukrainian leader to the White House. Ignoring these institutionalized violations during the impeachment inquiry, Fein fears, would legitimate them and lead to the death of democracy. https://www.truthdig.com/articles/the-end-of-the-rule-of-law/

In an interview with Muslimpress.com, Tim Anderson, the author of The Dirty War on Syria emphasizes on US policies to create a “New Middle East”. Here’s the full text of the interview:
Muslimpress: In your book, The Dirty War on Syria, you have argued that there are overwhelming evidence showing links between the “big powers” and the terrorist groups. Would you explain that?
Tim Anderson: In Chapter 12 of my book The Dirty War on Syria I document the independent evidence and admissions that demonstrate that the USA has directly or indirectly (through its allies Saudis, Qatar, Turkey and others) funded and armed every anti-government armed group in Syria. US Vice President Biden and head of the US armed forces Martin Dempsey have confirmed this. Washington has backed these terrorist groups in an attempt to build its ‘New Middle East’. It aimed to weakened Damascus and remove the threat of a combined Iran-Syria-Hezbollah-Palestine axis. http://www.muslimpress.com/Section-opinion-72/105186-there-is-zero-credible-evidence-that-the-syrian-arab-army-has-used-chemical-weapons?fbclid=IwAR2POXJOrfYr9NDfNX4bikZK7bVwDvuAh4yy2ZTZBiyEWdbsnact6HB7ZGA
“British Pop Legend Cat Stevens, who converted to Islam many years ago and
since then has been called Yusuf Islam, caused a big fuss in the media during a
visit to Turkey. One of the journalists from the Turkish news agency asked him
the following question: “What do you say about Islam that you have now
accepted which allows a man to marry four women? How can you logically justify
this? How could you accept something like this as a westerner and an
Yusuf Islam replied, “You claim to know my previous state. Before Ibecame Muslim, I was with so many women that I don’t even know how many there were. I wouldn’t even know if I had children from these women. When I lead such a depraved life, you were thrilled by me. Now I have become Muslim and I’m only married to one woman. I don’t intend to marry a second woman either. Just as the Islamic order of life allows the man to marry up to four women, it also imposes on him a number of duties regarding women and children. In the west, there is no such responsibility. A child doesn’t know his father and a father leaves this world without even once seeing his children.”

➽Is the “anti-Semitism” label losing some of its punch as a weapon against political parties? The Israel lobby has been very active in this election, attacking candidates who are critical of Israel by claiming they are “anti-Semitic” and demanding that parties drop them. In some cases, it worked and parties flinched. But not always. Its campaign against NDP candidate Miranda Gallo (above) failed. Has the Israel lobby gone to the well too many times? Read more.
Anti-Semitism is a real phenomenon in Canada. It is a fear of, or a dislike of, Jews. It is a form of racism, and like other racisms, it deserves to be actively opposed.
All political parties are fearful of appearing racist (witness Trudeau’s recent embarrassing blackface scandal), and during election time they are especially fearful of being labelled as anti-Semitic. They know that most Canadians rightly oppose anti-Semitism. https://canadatalksisraelpalestine.ca/2019/09/29/is-the-anti-semitism-label-losing-some-of-its-punch-as-a-weapon-against-political-parties/

November 26, 2019 (Gunnar Ulson – NEO) – The battle between fading US tech
giants and their Chinese rivals spans the globe. China’s Huawei appears to have
won the battle in its own backyard of Asia, but what about in Europe where the
US still holds a large amount of leverage it is not afraid to use? A self-described “non-profit independent journalism center in
Hungary” has recently published an article titled, “Hungary’s government is quietly neck-deep in the U.S.-Huawei war.”
In it, the “non-profit” Direkt36 claims: Viktor Orban’s government has found itself in the middle of a great power conflict in 2019. Last year, a new battleground emerged in the trade war between the United States and China. Washington accused Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei of espionage on behalf of the Chinese state and of corporate espionage.
It also claims (emphasis added): Although Hungary’s significance is relatively small in NATO and EU decision-making because of the size of the country, it still plays an important role in the European debate on Huawei. Hungary’s government regularly vetoes or blocks European decisions unfavorable to China’s political leadership, and one of Huawei’s most important European hubs is in Hungary. http://landdestroyer.blogspot.com/

Understanding racist discourse will help us fight it. The first thing to note is that virtually everybody, including those who actively promote and trade on racial hatred—like Donald Trump—denies being ‘a racist’. Of course, sometimes they are simply deliberately lying but there is more than just that involved. There is also the fact that racist ideology has changed significantly over time and that contemporary racism is, in some ways, very different from racism in the past. Today’s racists often try to exploit this by talking as if only the older version of racism really counted. https://mronline.org/2019/11/26/how-racism-works-today/

U.S. President Donald Trump sacked his Navy secretary on Twitter. The main reason is that the Navy secretary did not follow Trump’s advice regarding Navy Special Warfare Operator Edward Gallagher. Trump wanted Gallagher to retain his position as a Navy Seal. Gallagher was accused of stabbing to death a wounded fighter of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) in 2017; he was also accused of other incidents of murder (of a schoolgirl and an elderly man), and then of obstruction of justice.

not a clear case of a human being killed by a healthy wolf, the popular society

For more than 200 hundred years, wolves have been hunted, trapped, and poisoned

relatives on the family of dogs. An average-size wolf may weigh 90 to 120
pounds, stands 25 to 30 inches from the ground and stretch five to six feet
from nose to tail. Wolves look much like a “German Shepherd dog” with a thicker
fur and a bushy tail.
In many ways, a wolf resembles dogs and lions: Like dogs, because wolves are
very intelligent, protective, playful and loyal to their family. Like lions
because they are tactical hunters that work together to catch their prey. Yet

➽Illuminating Genetic Dark Matter – Uncovering Human “DNA Repeats” First direct analysis of pathogenic sequence repeats in the human genome.
Expansions of DNA repeats are very hard to analyze. A method developed by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics in Berlin allows for a detailed look at these previously inaccessible regions of the genome. It combines nanopore sequencing, stem cell, and CRISPR-Cas technologies. The method could improve the diagnosis of various congenital diseases and cancers in the future.
Large parts of the genome consist of monotonous regions where short sections of the genome repeat hundreds or thousands of times. But expansions of these “DNA repeats” in the wrong places can have dramatic consequences, like in patients with Fragile X syndrome, one of the most commonly identifiable hereditary causes of cognitive disability in humans. However, these repetitive regions are still regarded as an unknown territory that cannot be examined appropriately, even with modern methods. https://scitechdaily.com/illuminating-genetic-dark-matter-uncovering-human-dna-repeats/

Other photos of the gruesome scene show dozens of vultures and other scavengers crowding around the carcasses.
➽A Blue Whale Had His Heartbeat Taken for the First Time Ever — And Scientists Are Shocked
The world’s largest creatures can survive on just two heartbeats per minute. When the largest animals on Earth grab a snack, their hearts skip a beat — or sometimes 30.
That’s what a team of marine biologists found after recording a blue whale‘s heartbeat for the first time ever. After suction-cupping a pulse monitor to the back of a blue whale off the California coast, the researchers watched as the gargantuan creature dove and resurfaced nonstop for nearly 9 hours, alternately filling its lungs with air and its belly with schools of tasty fish hundreds of feet below the surface. https://www.livescience.com/first-blue-whale-heartbeat.html
➽3 Cows Swept Out to Sea by Hurricane Dorian Were Found Peacefully Grazing on an Island Miles Away Three cows that were swept out to sea after Hurricane Dorian hit their home on Cedar Island in North Carolina were found months later … totally chilling out on another island.
It seems the cows swam for miles to reach the North Carolina’s Outer Banks, a 56-mile (90 kilometers) stretch of barrier islands that’s reachable only by boat or … breaststroke. Dorian hit Cedar Island in September as a Category 1 storm, generating a “mini tsunami,” which was likely the result of storm surge that flooded the area and swept wildlife out to sea, according to the Charlotte Observer. https://www.livescience.com/cows-swept-sea-swam-island.html
➽Caught in Afterglow of a Dying Star: Most Powerful Light in the Universe First Detection of Inverse Compton Emission From Dying Gamma-Ray Burst
A dying star emits intense flashes of light called a gamma-ray burst. Most days, the Fermi gamma-ray space telescope detects these flashes. About 20 years ago, scientists predicted that a gargantuan energy level — tera-electron volts — would be detected in burst afterglow.
In January, the MAGIC telescopes on the Canary Islands observed light at this energy level for the first time. The theories predicting how such light would be produced, are now validated. https://scitechdaily.com/caught-in-afterglow-of-a-dying-star-most-powerful-light-in-the-universe/
➽Hubble Spots A Close Relationship in “The Dragon” Some galaxies are closer friends than others. While many live their own separate, solitary lives, others stray a little too close to a near neighbor and take their relationship to the next level.
The two galaxies featured in this image, named NGC 6285 (left) and NGC 6286 (right), have done just that! Together, the duo is named Arp 293 and they are interacting, their mutual gravitational attraction pulling wisps of gas and streams of dust from them, distorting their shapes, and gently smudging and blurring their appearances on the sky — to Earth-based observers, at least.
The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has viewed a number of interacting pairs. These can have distinctive, beautiful, and downright odd shapes, ranging from sheet music to a spaceship entering a sci-fi-esque wormhole, a bouquet of celestial blooms, and a penguin fiercely guarding its precious egg.
Arp 293 is located in the constellation of Draco (The Dragon), and lies over 250 million light-years from Earth. https://scitechdaily.com/hubble-spots-a-close-relationship-in-the-dragon/
➽Microdevice Simultaneously Measures Biophysical Properties and Position of Single Cells
Tracking the lateral position of single cells and particles plays an important role in evaluating the efficiency of microfluidic cell focusing, separation, and sorting.
Traditionally, the performance of microfluidic cell separation and sorting is evaluated either by analyzing the input and collected output samples requiring extra multiple steps of off-chip analysis or the use of expensive equipment (e.g., flow cytometry), or by detecting the lateral positions of cells using an expensive high-speed imaging setup with intricate image processing algorithms or laborious manual analysis. Hence, there is a great need to develop a simple approach for the lateral position measurement of flowing particles. https://scitechdaily.com/microdevice-simultaneously-measures-biophysical-properties-position-of-single-cells/

➽ (Natural News) The TESS space telescope has taken its first step in catching up to the massive achievements of its predecessor, Kepler. The NASA-operated spacecraft has recently found its first Earth-sized exoplanet.
The Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) has spotted a planet circling the dwarf star called HD 21749, which is 53 light-years away from Earth. This world, dubbed HD 21749b, is gaseous but not a gas giant like Jupiter or even Neptune. Experts classified it as a sub-Neptune. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-11-26-nasa-discovers-earth-sized-alien-world.html
Is canola oil consumption the driving force behind doctors prescribing blood thinners?

➽ (Natural News) Over five million American “patients” are taking blood thinners every day, and most of them will keep taking them, under doctor’s advisement, until the day they die. So why are so many people at risk of blood clots now, as opposed to previous generations? Medical doctors all claim it’s a disease that’s genetic, that can’t be solved without using rat poison (blood thinner), and this will surely save you from a stroke. Have you recently had surgery? You’re a prime candidate for blood thinner poison, and it’s well over a billion-dollar-a-year industry. Got atrial fibrillation? Great – time for some pesticide pharmaceuticals – would you prefer that be delivered orally or intravenously? What’s your poison, is it Warfarin, Rivaroxaban, Heparin, Fondaparinux, Edoxaban, Dabigatran, or Apixaban? It’s all just a sales trick called close by choice, like with used cars. https://www.naturalnews.com/2019-11-27-canola-oil-consumption-driving-force-doctors-prescribing-blood-thinners.html
