"Alone among all of Earth's life forms, humans alone perceive the absolute inevitability of their own mortality. For thousands of years, con artists have exploited that fear of the inevitable end of life, offering for sale various magical escapes from the grave, and all the acolytes have to do is surrender their money, their obedience, and their sanity." -- Michael Rivero

Australia's prime minister has given a national apology to survivors of the thalidomide scandal and their families.

It comes over 60 years after the morning sickness drug started causing birth defects in babies globally.

"This apology takes in one of the darkest chapters in Australia's medical history," Anthony Albanese told parliament on Wednesday.

It is the first time the government has acknowledged its role in the tragedy.

Intelligence officials and scientific experts have spoken out about the “orchestrated effort” to push the narrative that COVID-19 had natural origins, despite evidence showing the virus “most likely” leaked out of the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

In the new Sky News Australia documentary, “What Really Happened in Wuhan, the Next Chapter”, Sharri Markson reveals explosive new evidence about the origins of the pandemic that brought the world to a standstill in 2020.

'Drown Russians in Drugs': How Ukraine Unleashed a Hybrid War on Russia MikeRivero Wed, 11/29/2023 - 07:11

The volume of drugs smuggled from Ukraine to Russia over the past several years is enough to poison the population of an entire city.

"Drone" (mephedrone) and "flakka"(alpha-Pyrrolidinopentiophenone, a.k.a. alpha-PVP) started pouring into Russia eight years ago following the Maidan coup in Ukraine. Synthetic drugs became as prolific as heroin was in the 1990s.

Siloxanes are man-made chemicals that are used in creams, oils and sprays to shine and smooth hair by preventing moisture from getting in or out.

Scientists from Purdue University in Indiana found that when used with high-heat from curling and straightening tools, the siloxane-laden hair products evaporate and release toxins into the air.

Siloxanes, derived from silicone, have been linked to fertility issues, hormonal imbalance, and liver damage. 

Adrenochrome (3-Hydroxy-1-methyl-2,3-dihydro-1H-indole-5,6-dione) is relatively easy to to synthesize. It is not manufactured because it has no applications, that is, nobody wants to buy it because it is useless. Its chemical derivative carbazochrome has some limited utility as a haemostatic (= toxivenol) and can be bought from a number of manufacturers.

It sounds too crazy to be true, but can a tiny elementary particle really be God? Surely you've heard of the "God particle" that scientists in Switzerland have been able to locate. These scientists now announced a puzzling discovery at the Lage Hadron Collider in Geneva. The particles suddenly exhibited unexpected behavior that calls everything into question and shows in a shocking way that we can never know everything.

Three weeks after receiving a second dose of a covid vaccine, Robert Sullivan collapsed at home on his treadmill. An anaesthesiologist in Maryland, USA, he was a particularly fit 49 year old: the week before falling ill, he’d been happily skiing at altitude in Colorado.
