Panel Emphasizes Safety in Digitization of Health Records

Poorly designed, hard-to-use computerized health records are a threat to patient safety, and an independent agency should be set up to investigate injuries and deaths linked to health information technology, according to a federal study released Tuesday.

The report by the Institute of Medicine comes as the government is spending billions of dollars in incentive payments to encourage doctors and hospitals to adopt electronic health records. The Department of Health and Human Services requested the study, in response to concerns from some doctors and public health experts that the drive for digital records might bring a wave of technology-induced medical errors.

Sunscreen Danger

My daughter Teal rang me this week asking what ingredients to avoid in sunscreens. The very next day I received an email promoting one that looked promising, at first glance.

It had a list of natural ingredients at the top of the web site but when I read the fine print it contained Micronised Titanium Dioxide. Here is some interesting data on the difference between products at normal size being non-toxic and micronised or nano-particles (really, really small ones) being destructive to cellular health.

LaRouche: Remember Iraq! Stop Iran attack, nuclear WWIII

German political leader Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the wife of U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche, has warned that the world could be at war within weeks unless nations and citizens reject the rehashed neo-con WMD lies pushed by British stooge Barack Obama, the British, French and Israelis to justify an attack on Iran which could trigger a nuclear world war.

German political leader Helga Zepp-LaRouche, the wife of U.S. statesman Lyndon LaRouche, has warned that the world could be at war within weeks unless nations and citizens reject the rehashed neo-con WMD lies pushed by British stooge Barack Obama, the British, French and Israelis to justify an attack on Iran which could trigger a nuclear world war.

The just-released International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report alleging Iran is pushing ahead with a nuclear weapons program, to which allegations the Iranian government had already responded with a 117-page detailed refutation, has been prepared as the green light for a rogue Israeli strike by one of the neo-con architects of the Iraq war, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which will trigger an Iranian counterstrike, followed by a U.S. response, and then a showdown with Russia and China.

The “intelligence” cited by Obama at his G-20 press conference in Cannes amounts to the same rubbish WMD claims used in the build-up to the Iraq war, down to satellite photos purportedly of steel containers to be used for nuclear weapons tests, a rehash of the mobile weapons labs in Iraq that turned out to be empty containers. On 5th November, Iran’s Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi told reporters in Tehran that the IAEA “intelligence” on Iran’s program was a “fabrication”: “The Americans raised documents like this in the past: the Niger scandal”, Salehi said, referring to the bogus claims that Niger had provided yellowcake uranium to Saddam Hussein.

Even a former Israeli Mossad chief, Ephraim Halevy, declared that Iran is far from being an existential threat and that an attack would endanger the entire region. “Ultra-Orthodox radicalization [among Jews] poses a bigger threat than [Iranian President] Ahmadinejad,” he said, according to Ynet on 5th November, the website of the Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth.

Obama’s role in this war-charge is more confirmation of Lyndon LaRouche’s charge that he is a British stooge, a Nero-like narcissist in love with his reflection in his teleprompter who was installed as president through a public relations con funded by British agent George Soros, the money bags behind the fake political movements GetUp, MoveOn and Avaaz and the bogus Twitter and Facebook revolutions in Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The American people were duped into thinking they were voting for the opposite of the psychopath George Bush; instead they got much worse—a maniac who pleasures in murdering U.S. citizens with drones.

Preparations for an Iran strike have been under way in secrecy: war criminal Tony Blair, the fabricator of the WMD lies regurgitated by George W. Bush and his Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell in 2002-3, met Obama in the U.S. two weeks ago; British Chief of Defence Staff Gen. David Richards visited Israel last week, which was followed by a visit by Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak to London. (Powell has since called his adoption of British claims that Saddam Hussein possessed WMD, “the worst mistake of my life.”)

Contrary to his public announcements, Obama has not pulled troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, but has kept a huge U.S. military presence in the Middle East: 30,000 troops in Iraq, 20,000 in the Gulf States, 100,000 troops in Afghanistan, three nuclear aircraft carriers, one in the eastern Mediterranean and two in the Indian Ocean, accompanied by flotillas of destroyers and frigates all equipped with modern air defence systems and within striking distance of Iran. The 2nd November London Guardian reported that the British military is already planning for an attack.

(Australians should especially note the purpose of Obama’s visit next week, which is to open a multimillion dollar “pre-positioning” base next to Robertson Barracks on the outskirts of Darwin, to store equipment for military operations in Asia.)

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told reporters at a press conference in Moscow on 8th November that an Israeli strike against Iran’s nuclear program “would be a grave mistake, fraught with unpredictable consequences”. The consequences were spelled out in a business publication,, from the central Asian republic of Azerbaijan, which borders Iran: “In the case of realization of such a plan, the world can stand on the brink of nuclear war. In Syria [which lies on the route of an Israeli air strike of Iran and would be a target too], there is a Russian naval base, and Russian specialists work at the Bushehr nuclear power plant. How modern Russia acts in case of murder of its peacekeepers and citizens the world learned in August 2008 in Georgia. Russian military doctrine permits the use of nuclear weapons even against countries not having it.” (Emphasis added.)

Furthermore, Iran and Pakistan were official observers at the 7th November Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) heads of government meeting in St. Petersburg, where Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin met with Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao. Iran, Pakistan and India have applied for full membership of the SCO, a strategic alliance which represents the majority of the world’s population. Russia and China are already staunchly opposed to a strike on Iran—if it goes ahead, the U.S., Britain, France, and Israel, supported by perennial cannon-fodder Australia, will provoke a conflict with this power bloc, which is the intention.

“The situation is escalating towards World War III very quickly if we don’t turn this around,” Helga LaRouche warned on 7th November, adding, “and one way of turning it around is to make sure that the full scope of the strategic confrontation which is unfolding is getting clearly through to people.”

Fracking May Have Caused 50 Earthquakes in Oklahoma

Cuadrilla Resources, a British energy company, recently admitted that its hydraulic fracturing operations “likely” caused an earthquake in England. Predictably, this news quickly sent a shockwave through the U.K., the oil and natural gas industries, and the environmental activist community. And it certainly feeds plenty of speculation that the same phenomenon could be occurring elsewhere.

Right on the heels of Cuadrilla’s announcement, news is spreading that the United States Geological Survey has released a report (pdf) that links a series of earthquakes in Oklahoma last January to a fracking operation underway there. Evidently, a resident reported feeling some minor earthquakes, spurring the USGS to investigate. They found that some 50 small earthquakes had indeed been registered, ranging in magnitude from 1.0 to 2.8. The bulk of these occurred within 2.1 miles of Eola Field, a fracking operation in southern Garvin County.

12,000 Years Old Unexplained Structure

Göbekli Tepe, is a hilltop sanctuary erected on the highest point of an elongated mountain ridge some 15 km northeast of the town of Sanliurfa, in southeastern Turkey and 500 miles away from Istanbul, Turkey. It is the most astonishing archaeological discovery in modern times and also thought to be the oldest advanced civilization on Earth.

Check out this petition for me

In the past month, nine Buddhist monks and nuns have set themselves on fire to protest a growing Chinese crackdown in Tibet. These tragic acts are a desperate cry for help -- and we can answer their call. China restricts access to the region, but if we can get key governments with close ties to China to send diplomats to the area, it will expose this growing brutality and save lives.
