Had Daniel Barden survived the massacre at his elementary school, the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, that claimed the lives of 26 innocent people, he would have enjoyed this weekend, celebrating his thirteenth birthday with his family. Daniel was loved by everyone who knew him, and he touched their lives with his warmth, kindness, generosity, and his imaginative play. Daniel was outside some time before sunrise on Friday, December 14, 2012, and he admired the Christmas lights on a Christmas tree and said in his cute little boy voice, “Isn’t it beautiful?” His father, Mark Barden, agreed it was beautiful and took a picture of it. Then, Daniel practiced playing “Jingle Bells” on the piano at home. When the bus came, Daniel got on the bus. Little did Mark know, this would be the final time he would see his beautiful boy alive. The day at Sandy Hook Elementary School started out like any other school day, but shortly after 9:30 a.m. EST, a gunman, later identified as Adam Lanza, walked into Daniel’s first grade classroom and fatally shot him, along with many other first grade students. Lanza also killed six staff members at the school before taking his own life. A six-year-old girl stayed alive through the massacre by playing dead. Daniel is survived by his brother James, and his sister Natalie. Daniel had dreams of becoming a firefighter when he grows up, but now that unfortunately won’t happen.

Cryptocurrency market crashes after Goldman-Sachs axes trading plans

The cryptocurrency market is in the midst of a disaster – and it doesn’t seem like it will be ending soon.

Goldman-Sachs announced yesterday that they were rolling back plans to launch a trading desk for cryptocurrency, which lead to a major sell-off across all of the currencies in the market.

Bitcoin has lost about 15% of its value – dropping from $7378.78 USD at 8:00AM UTC on Wednesday to $6419.60 USD at 4:15PM UTC on Thursday. Other cryptocurrencies, such as Etherem and Litecoin, have also suffered an average of %15 in value loss.

Bitcoin watchdog CCN has suggested that the crash is not a result of the Goldman-Sachs announcement, but a result of falling bitcoin prices since the cryptocurrency crash that occurred in February.

Regardless of the cause of the crash, some Twitter users have been advising others to leave the Cryptocurrency market alltogether under the #bitcoin tag.

This article will be updated as more information becomes available.

Today, when YouTube server tracks the total views on videos, it also tracks how long each person is watching your video. Simultaneous views may result in a watch time total that far exceeds the age of the video, for example, a total of 100 years of watch time on a six month old video. But six years ago, the idea of “watch time” was still in its beta phrase as a plan for the near future. A week from now, YouTube will have had watch time data that extend over six years. It was six years ago on September 1, 2012, that YouTube had finally began to keep track of the time for each view and keep track of the totals.

The DoD\’s Latest Military Campaign – A Six Year Old Girl

The DoD’s Latest Military Campaign – A Six Year Old Girl

From Wikinews, the free news source you can write!

Monday, August 29, 2016

It all started about six months ago. A little girl, very close to her 6th birthday, whose greatest joys in life are playing with her teddy bears and riding her bike, started to develop patches of heat on her skin. Whilst most parents would dismiss this as a mild fever and most would probably be correct, this was not to be the case for this 6 year old. She had just become the latest target in a US brain/body computer interface experiment known as Remote Neural Monitoring (RNM).

The DoD went to war against a child.

First observed as a general heat isolated to an area that alternated between one and six inches, typically to the scalp and side of the face, it was the first sign that microwave power beam had been applied to the child. The heating comes from poor absorption of microwaves as the computer tasked with firing them would be in the process of learning the specific electrical characteristics of the little girl’s body. This also involves spot burning, about 5-10mm in diameter, of the child’s arms and legs to determine thermal limits.

Over the next several weeks, minor changes in behavior begin to be displayed. These changes in behavior are the result of areas of the brain being selectively stimulated and suppressed at high speed. This is how the DoD influences behavior. In children, this is especially powerful as much of the stimulation is basic urges to do things. As we all know, children lack advanced capability in the areas of critical thinking and will pretty much do anything that they feel they want to do. Thus, when RNM is involved, direct remote control is virtually complete.

This stimulation of the brain also effects her ability to show or receive affection, as it jams emotional sensation in real-time. All of this is to breed a child that is disconnected from her emotional ties to her family, so that she can progressively isolated as she grows older. This is something that is used by RNM to eliminate objections in the wider population to the more perverse actions of the US such as rendition, torture, etc.

Straight away, the program moved to influence behavior by introducing military training into her playtime. This involved the child acting out scenes of strangulation, eye gouging, stabbing, marching with weapons, etc. These minor manipulations are a stepping stone to more severe bahvior issues as the child grows. That is, the DoD is attempting to bias her neural development to reduce impulse control for use in more serious crimes.

Along side this came a number other approaches. Euphamistically called ‘forced sleep’, a type of complex brain siezure with little-to-no external evidence other than the eyes rolling back into the head, is applied to ‘rag-doll’ the child to permit rapid experimentation with muscle control. One such area is the eyes, the eyelids open a few millimeters and the eyes can be observed moving left-to-right and in reverse continiously for hours on end. This is electrically stimulated motion of the eye by means of microwaves. Depending on the angle of the beam hitting the child, this can be quite complex, as at some angles, it must tunnel through the brain to the muscles controlling eye movement.

At the same time, microwaves scan up and down the chest resulting in a minor compression of the chest as it hack the rib cage. This is to permit the system to breath after it kills the child. The intention here is to wear the child’s body like a skinsuit Buffalo Bill created during the movie Silence of the Lambs. Functionally alive, but remotely animated by electrical stimulation and an AI impersonating the child. This compression, along with radio waves penetrating the chest to the lungs, causes fluids to congeal leaving the child with a smoker’s like cough for months on end.

At night, as RNM hacks its way to the bladder, it causes the child to urinate itself repeatly whilst ‘rag-dolled’ as it compresses the bladder tissue.

During the night-time sessions, the AI attempts to animate the hand and fingers. Each nigh, for several hours, the little girl’s fingers are moving one-by-one as the system calaibrates itself. This also occurs to the feet and, more recently, to the upper leg which can be observed eerily moving back and forth as the child is unconscious.

Lately, the little girl has been subjected to a whole body hack. This causes heating of the skin to nearly 40 degrees celsius, from head to toe. At night, rag-dolled with a fever that of a malaria patient, the little girl’s heart rate sits for hours on end at nearly 100bpm.

Her only defense, an air-conditioner.

Make no mistake, the intention of the DoD is to murder this little girl and hope everyone keeps their mouths shut out of some perverse notion of loyality.

Home of the brave?

Not so much these days.

Military Veterans Face Large Challenges Post-Service

Military Veterans Face Large Challenges Post-Service

Thursday, July 14, 2016

Upon exiting the military, veterans are forced to fend for themselves while attempting to transition back into society. A study done by USC School of Social Work shows that “[…] nearly eight out of 10 service members leave the military without a job, and expect to find meaningful employment that provides adequate remuneration once they leave the military.

There is a gap in communication between the military and local organizations and businesses. The study also concluded that “[…] over two-thirds of today’s veterans reported difficulties adjusting to civilian life“, and claimed upon completion of service that “they do not know where to go or who to contact to seek help.

An organization helping these veterans find work in the film industry is the Lifton Institute of Media Arts and Sciences (LIMS), which is offering job opportunities to post-9/11 veterans in need.

Jimmy Lifton, President of LIMS, stated that the problem was a “national issue that all businesses should be actively pursuing a solution for” and that “there is no reason why every veteran should not have the means to be financially independent and self sufficient.”

The LIMS VET 50 program has helped over 75 veterans in the last year to secure jobs in Hollywood working behind the scenes on film, TV, and music productions. “LIMS accomplished above and beyond what the Veteran’s Administration, Goodwill, and the Salvation Army’s social workers failed to do. I should know, as a homeless Marine veteran, I received dysfunctional agency lip service since 2012.” says LIMS alumnus Art Flores.

There are a good amount of veterans who do find jobs, but not all are successful in finding quality, good paying jobs. The study concluded that “[…] nearly a quarter of veterans in Los Angeles County with jobs are earning at or below the poverty level. Over three-quarters of those veterans without a job are not receiving assistance in finding a job.” According to salary.com, the average salary for the entertainment industry is US$30,000 – 100,000+, which is life-changing for any veteran in need.

On August 15, 2016, LIMS is set to launch its newest initiative program that will provide free training to 200 post-9/11 veterans. Free transportation and daily meals are expected to also be provided to the veterans during training.

Job opportunities are set to be lined up for all 200 veterans upon their completion of the program.

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

On Tuesday, the Labour Party governing body and the National Executive Committee (NEC) decided that current leader Jeremy Corbyn would be included in the party’s leadership election without requiring the support of 51 MPs and MEPs. Speaking outside the meeting, Corbyn said that he was “delighted”. In a separate decision, the NEC has stated that all who joined the party after January 2016 will be required to pay £25 in order to vote in the leadership election. On Wednesday, ex-work and pensions secretary Owen Smith announced his standing for the Labour Party leadership.

NEC decides Corbyn is to be included on leadership Ballot[]

The NEC came to a decision yesterday concerning the interpretation of the Labour party rules. “Where there is no vacancy, nominations may be sought by potential challengers,” the contention was over whether Corbyn himself was to be counted as a challenger. Jeremy Corbyn stated that he had been provided legal advice regarding the nomination requirement whereas rival MPs said they had received legal advice to the contrary. The NEC decided by secret ballot that Jeremy was correct in his statement, voting 18–14 in Corbyn’s favour.

On Wednesday, Owen Smith announced his campaign for the leadership of the Labour Party saying that he had “lost faith” in Corbyn’s ability as a leader of the party, saying he can “heal it” and that there are elements from both the left and right wings of the party that favor the split of the Labour Party. He has yet to receive the support of 51 MPs and MEPs in order to appear on the ballot. He expressed that had he been an MP at the time he would have voted against the Iraqi war, unlike leadership rival Angela Eagle who voted in favour, and his support the renewal of the nuclear submarine program trident, putting himself at odds with incumbent leader Corbyn.

This season marked the last year that Kobe Bryant will play in the NBA. Kobe started his career in 1996 being drafted by the Charlotte Hornets and then being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers before playing a single game in the NBA, which would mark the start of a legendary career. Kobe Bryant spent his second last year in the NBA and said that he would retire at the end of this season, having a fair well tour around the NBA, and in his last home game against the Utah Jazz, he put on a show for his fans, scoring a whopping 60 points at the age of 36, coming close to his 81 point game against the Toronto raptors in 2006. Kobe Bryant ends his legendary career with 5 NBA championships, 18 NBA all-star appearances, 4 NBA all-star Most Valuable Player wins, 2008 NBA MVP, 2 Olympic gold medals (2008 and 2012), 2 time league scoring champ and the NBA slam dunk contest winner in 1997. A career like this has left basketball fans and players wandering if Kobe Bryant is the best or one of the bet players to ever play basketball.

Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) is a genetic disorder that effects light sensing of the retina that effects over 80 000 people in the world. Though this degenerative condition has yet to be treated or cured, research has been found in herbal remedies such as traditional Chinese plant remedies Lycium barbarum or wolfberry, as reported from a team in Hong Kong.

The team from the Polytechnic University in Hong Kong gathered 23 patients to study. Some given the remedy while the others are given a placebo. This research has shown that the people that took the Lycium barbarum showed less deterioration in the retina after several tests. The plant is said to have a neuroprotective effect that may minimise the process of deterioration.

“Our results confirm that the 6 months LB treatment for RP patients had marginal significant improvement in low-contrast VA and central visual sensitivity,” said the researchers.

Lebron James has made history this season by being the first player in 50 years to make it to the NBA finals for 6 seasons in a row, and being the first non-Boston Celtic player to do so. Lebron started this dominance in 2011 with the Miami Heat against the Dallas Mavericks, and has continued to so, even with leaving Miami at the end of the 2014 season and re-joining the Cleveland Cavaliers, and currently awaits the winner of the Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder to face in this year’s finals series. However, as remarkable this achievement is, Lebron has a 2-4 losing record in the NBA finals, his 2 wins coming in 2012 and 2013 in Miami, and has not won the NBA championship in Cleveland, losing in both 2007 and 2015. While Lebron’s dominance over the league is astonishing, things don’t look promising this season as while Cleveland are the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Western Conference has had a much better season this year, and both Golden State and Oklahoma City have had better seasons and have a better team than Cleveland do this year. Can Lebron beat the odds this year and capture his third ring?
