Every man for himself

Scientists expose another myth.

Quote
Every man for himself
 
While “women and children first” is a noble call that rings out on sinking ships in movies, an analysis of real maritime disasters reveals the opposite is nearly always true. Swedish researchers looked back at the records of 100 major ship disasters from the past three centuries involving more than 15,000 passengers, and found that the survival rate for men was approximately twice that of women. Even the idea that the captain goes down with his ship was trashed, with 61 percent of the crew typically surviving, compared to just 37 percent of male passengers.
 
The authors of the analysis, published last month (July 10) in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, are actually economists, interested in how far people will go to protect their own interests. The sinking of the Titanic is a rare example in shipwrecks where there was a clear survival advantage to women, but it goes against the observation of self-interest many economists observe in day-to-day activities. In researching the overall trend, the authors show that the Titanic is a remarkable exception to the general rule that every man is out for himself.

Now you know why one percenters love yachts so much!  :icon_mrgreen:

Washington’s double-dip scam and war with Iran
« Reply #36 on: August 15, 2012, 03:27:00 PM »
This is an excellent summary of the current insanity at empire central by Mike Stathis.
Quote
As the United States continues to suffer from the economic disaster created by Wall Street, the “experts” are once again discussing the possibility of a “double-dip” recession. This play on words is ludicrous to those of us who realize the recession which began in December of 2007, never ended.
 

The problem with the term “double-dip” recession is that it has been transformed into a misnomer by the media. The National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) came up with the term “double-dip” recession to describe relative changes in economic data during a recession. According to the NBER, a double-dip recession is “A continuous recession that's punctuated by a period of growth, then followed by a further decline in the economy.”
 
But the “period of growth” referred to by the NBER does not designate the end of a recession. It merely acknowledges a slight improvement followed by a decline in economic conditions. Note the most relevant portion of the NBER’s definition is that a “double-dip” is a “continuous recession.”

Quote
As most Americans realize, there has been no economic recovery. Borrowing trillions of dollars in order to finance banking bailouts, housing subsidies, food stamps, unemployment benefits, and medical care for impoverished Americans does not constitute an economic expansion or recovery; at least not for a nation that claims to be based on “capitalism.”
 
The objective of this deception is to improve consumer confidence, as directed by Washington. The NBER realizes the media and its “experts” have deceived the American people, but they have kept silent on the matter because they too are members of the establishment.
 
With nearly one-half of the entire U.S. population currently receiving some form of government assistance, no honest person of sound mind can legitimately claim that the U.S. economy recovered in June 2009, or any time thereafter. Furthermore, with such a high level of public assistance, one could argue that the U.S. economy does not operate based on free market principles. Of course, there are many other points that would strengthen this argument.
 

Quote
Americans have been subjected to establishment-based propaganda similar to the “double-dip” delusion for decades. Compiling a list of this deception would easily consume several large books. But I will discuss a few recent examples.

After listing some examples, he continues with this:
Quote
During the financial crisis of 2008, the Federal Reserve and Washington utilized a similar strategy. They claimed that unless the banking bailout was passed, the U.S. would enter a depression. But American homeowners and workers were not bailed out. Instead, their tax dollars were sent to Wall Street.
 
And of course, the bailout did not prevent a depression. Ironically, the bailout made the banks designated as “too big to fail” even bigger. This “too big to fail” mantra is but another scare tactic orchestrated by the establishment. Common sense tells us that any bank deemed as “too big to fail” poses a tremendous risk to the economy and must be broken up.
 
Today, the same banks responsible for the collapse of the global economy continue to defraud investors and consumers because Washington refused to pass real Wall Street reform.

For those who don't know who  MAINLY runs Wall street in letter and in spirit, read on:
Quote
The Zionist establishment’s most recent pack of manufactured lies has been focused on Iran. According to the criminal puppets in Washington, Iran poses a threat to the U.S. and its “allies” as a terrorist nation seeking to arm itself with nuclear weapons.
 

Unfortunately, most Americans are unaware of the facts about Iran and Israel, just like they are unaware of the real reasons for U.S. military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan. As informed citizens of the world realize, Iran is the most peaceful nation in the Middle East, and has remained so for many centuries. Israel is the real threat; not only to the Middle East, but to the rest of the world. No other nation comes remotely close to the dangers lurking from Israel’s nuclear-armed, trigger-happy regime.
 
Despite being considered America’s “strongest ally in the Middle East,” Israel has engaged in a long list of activities that could be considered acts of war against the United States. For instance, Israel has been caught spying on the United States numerous times, committed multiple acts of terrorism on U.S. soil, and attacked at least one unarmed U.S. naval vessel, resulting in dozens of casualties.
 

In every case, there have been no repercussions from Washington because each of America’s politicians have been bought off by Zionist Jewish money, most of which was obtained by illegal means of some form.
Quote
As Zionist-controlled Washington reinvigorates its treasonous partnership with Israel, their obsession with Iran also serves to distract attention away from the depression going on in the U.S.
 
Although U.S. borders remain open, Zionist-controlled Washington constantly reminds Americans that they must pony up trillions of tax dollars to protect borders in the Middle East and defeat “terrorists” who are thousands of miles away.
 
But they never mention the fact that the (unnecessary) wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have increased the severity of the economic collapse in the U.S. Nor do they mention that future generations of Americans will be required to pay for these wars in the form of tax hikes, as well as huge cuts to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare

agelbert,

I watched all three of those videos. LOL. I'm pretty sure, whatever comes around, I don't want to be underground. I'd much rather have a secure shelter above ground, with a small community of capable people inhabiting it. One family underground strikes me as being very vulnerable. I can imagine the bad guys already planing how to smoke them out.

Meanwhile, suicides are up in the UK.

1,000 suicides linked to hard economic times in Britain?
Quote
LONDON -- A painful economic recession, rising unemployment and biting austerity measures may have already driven more than 1,000 people in Britain to commit suicide, according to a study published on Wednesday.

The study, a so-called time-trend analysis which compared the actual number of suicides with those expected if pre-recession trends had continued, reflects findings elsewhere in Europe where suicides are also on the rise.

More Mutations in Fukushima Butterflies

More Mutations in Fukushima Butterflies
Researchers have found an increase in butterflies with unusual wing shapes, legs, and antennae than before the nuclear disaster.
Source: International Science Times

Quote
Butterflies collected from sites near Fukushima 2 months after the power plant leaked radiation into the environment showed more than double the mutation rates of butterflies collected from other sites in Japan. The researchers, who hail from University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, reported their findings last week (August 9) in Scientific Reports.
Indeed, each subsequent generation arising from the first radiation-affected butterflies had more severe physical abnormalities than its parent generation. Part of this can be explained by the passing down of damaged genes, but an additional factor, the researchers say, was that butterflies ate contaminated food in the area, which can be more damaging than external exposure.
“It has been believed that insects are very resistant to radiation,” lead researcher Joji Otaki from the University of the Ryukyus, Okinawa, told BBC News. “In that sense, our results were unexpected.”

http://the-scientist.com/2012/08/15/more-mutations-in-fukushima-butterflies/

Right! The negative stuff is ALWAYS "unexpected". Sure. NOT! It's true that mammals are more affected because they have more easily disrupted DNA but insects are considered just as susceptible as mamals to increased mutations from generation to generation. This has been conclusively proven for more than 70 YEARS! Drosphila melanogastor (the fruit fly) is one of science's pet torture specimens.

Drosophila melanogaster
 They breed rapidly and genetic effects can be studied for several generations in a brief time period. Scientists love to experment with them. They are cheap and its easy to keep a control group and monitor statistically valid populations for peer review publication requirements.

Quote
For purposes of assessing the risks of environmental exposure to radionuclide emissions, the genetic effects and in utero developmental effects are the only health hazards other than cancer that are addressed in this Background Information Document (BID) ,

6.5.1 Types of Genetic Harm and Duration of Expression

Genetic harm (or the genetic effects) of radiation exposure is defined as stable, heritable changes induced in the germ cells (eggs or sperm) of exposed individuals, which are transmitted to and expressed only in their progeny and in future generations,
Quote
Chromosomal damage and mutations have been demonstrated in cells in culture, in plants, in insects, and in mammals (UNSCEAR72,77,82), and in peripheral blood lymphocytes sf persons exposed to radiation (UNSCEAR82, Ev79, Po78) ,
Quote
Early experiimental studies showed that x-radiation is mutagenic, In 1927, R.J, Muller reported radiation-induced genetic changes in animals, and in 1928, L-J. Stadler reported such changes in piants (Ki62j.

Although genetic studies were carried out in the 1930s, mostly in plants and fruit flies (Drosophila), the studies on mammals started after the use of nuclear weapons in World War II (UNSCEAR58).

Gamma radiation is more powerful than x-rays so it was a nobrainer even BEFORE the bomb that radionuclides would be multigenerationally mutagenic. I hate it when scientists play dumb.
Quote
In 1927, H.J. Muller described x-rayinduced mutations in animals (in the insect, Drosophila), and in 1928, L.J, Stadler reported a similar finding in plants (Ki62).
At about the same time, radiation effects on the developing human embryo were observed. Case reports in 1929 showed a high rate of microcephaly (small head size) and central nervous system disturbance and one case of skeletal defects in children irradiated in utero (UNSCEAR69). These effects, at unrecorded but high exposures and at generally unrecorded gestational ages, appeared to produce central nervous system and eye defects similar to those reported in rats as early as 1922 (Xu50)-

Sharks are fellow Earthlings; Not soup stock

For 25 years, Discovery's Shark Week has offered television viewers a unique look into the world of sharks, the ocean’s top predators. But at the Pew Environment Group, it's always Shark Week.

For nearly 400 million years, various types of sharks have patrolled the oceans, weeding out the weak among prey and maintaining balance in the marine ecosystem. But in the past half-century, overfishing of sharks has devastated their numbers, and up to 73 million are killed each year, primarily for their fins. In recent months, though, conservation efforts have led to several key victories for sharks.

Learn more about what has been done globally to save sharks, which are critical to ocean diversity.

Wowauonihan: To respect and honor everything around us
« Reply #41 on: August 16, 2012, 09:15:39 PM »
The people that were here before we got here are returning to the old ways because they work. For those who believe the "old ways" were a Malthusian struggle with danger and disease that kept human population numbers down (and consequently sustainable), science has a refutation of this grim view of the past. Women in hunter gatherer groups were not sedentary; they were very mobile. Research has shown that active women do not ovulate monthly and can go several months without ovulating. This, not danger and disease, was the main population regulating mechanism for Homo sapiens. When women became sedentary, they began to ovulate regularly. They became sort of like a queen bee that has all its food brought to it and therefore can devote all her energy to making babies. All those human versions of the queen bee got the population ball rolling and antiseptic techniques in medicine made it go to the lengths we have today. The bottom line is that we (both male and female) were not designed for a sedentary life style. A hunter gatherer can eat meat every day and never get heart disease or hardening of the arteries from cholesterol plaques because his metabolism is never placed in the situation where it has too much excess energy to store. The cheapest energy, the kind you get from ethanol, goes straight to the liver where it is stored in fat cells (IN the liver) that eventually inhibit liver cell oxygenation and cause death (cirrhosis). Booze is just another great example of why too much energy is bad. Refined sugar, just below alcohol in the "quick fix cheap high energy charge" category, is responsible for the Diabetes epidemic sweeping the world's human population (First Nations tribes have suffered mightily from the effects of alcohol and refined sugars in their diets but the rest of Homo sapiens is heavily impacted now as well). The First Nations knew for thousands of years that it is deleterious to human health AND the human spirit to get too much of a "good thing". Now they are attempting to get back in balance. If the 1% and Wall Street would realize that the functional equivalent in human affairs of wanting too much of a good thing (GREED), really IS bad, we would all be better off.

Historically, Native nations had their own systems of food generation, relying on tribal knowledge for harvesting, planting and consumption techniques. But over the last 200 years, federal Indian policy disrupted and, in some cases, devastated the traditional practices of Native nations. Federal Indian policy has undoubtedly destroyed the control Native nations once held over their land and traditional agriculture, altering the diets of Native peoples. These historical dynamics have contributed to some of the devastating health statistics on Native homelands, including high rates of diabetes, obesity and devastating health conditions.

First Nations recognizes that healthy Native citizens are the cornerstone of a healthy community and nation. Thus, our work in the area of Native food systems has been aimed at increasing Native control over systems of food generation and consumption.

Formed in 1973, the Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority (OSPRA) is a tribally-chartered program of the Oglala Sioux Tribe. Their goal is to develop and implement wildlife protection policies on the Pine Ridge Reservation, encompassing about 2 million acres in South Dakota. Moreover, the Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority regulates and monitors hunting activities, water systems, and other natural resource functions. They are also charged with managing the tribal bison herd. The herd numbers over 700 bison that harvest on four separate pastures with 35,000 acres of land and natural water resources.

Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority is guided by the following values:

Woope Sakowin: Seven basic values or laws of OSPRA brought by the White Buffalo Calf Woman who became a buffalo.

Cante Ognake: To care for the welfare of the people in your heart, to be generous, to share, to help, to give.

Wowaunsila: To have pity and compassion for everything that moves.

Wowauonihan: To have respect and honor those we respect, that is everything around us.

Wacin Tanka: To have patience and tolerance.

Wowahwala: To be humble, to seek humility.

Woohitike: To have principals and discipline ourselves, to follow our principals, not to fear those things that change and happen around us; We must be brave and courageous.

Woksape: To have understanding and wisdom.

Other tribes throughout the USA are growing and marketing many types of traditional First Nations crops like organic heirloom corn (many different colors), apple orchards, berries as well as meat protein foods like organic chicken.

Nobody talks about it but if 7 billion humans ALL operated human powered machinery to preserve their health and keep ovulation cycles down to two or three a year, THAT could be considered a renewable energy source and using it would lower global energy demands by maybe 5%. You get less babies nad less energy demand. What's wrong with that? Get off those lazy butts butts and get your asses in gear! Don't you know there's an energy war on? Now everybody attach a one ton rock to a cable and, using gearing and a bicycle chain, move that rock up every day! When the rock is coming down, you use it to run a generator that powers something in your house for a while like resistance heating for cooking or winter. And if your wife is fertile, crack the whip to get her cranking that rock up there! For you ladies with couch potato husbands, tell those freeloaders that they will eat cold food if the stove isn't charged up and you are not going pay any hospital bills for some cholesterol laden pig! Da Godmuder has spoken! :icon_mrgreen:

Future State of Charge: How Clean Will Electric Vehicles Get?
Quote
The longer you own an electric vehicle, the lower its global warming emissions are likely to become. Why? As some of the oldest, dirtiest coal plants are being retired and investments in renewable electricity increase, the global warming emissions that result from generating a given amount of electricity are estimated to fall nationwide by an average of about 13 percent by 2025.


Quote
The future has yet to be written
Clean electricity policies are driving the grid in the right direction, meaning an EV bought today is likely to have lower global warming emissions over time.

Don't miss the graphic at the link (too big to upload) showing how dirty or clean the electricity you now use to charge your car is and how much cleaner it is projected to be.

Expand please. Women living close to the earth I've known, ovulate closely in relation to the moon. I don't doubt, the wilder a woman, the less she ovulates, I'm just wondering about the studies. And I guess it seems to me, women ovulating with the moon has a nice symmetry, as an ideal. The asymmetry of the ovulation cycles of the hunter/gatherer have much to do with the reality that the hunter/gather way is cyclically harsh, more dependent on immediate stimuli in relation cycles of the earth.
