Scientists make final call on ‘chemtrails’

Researchers release findings on ‘theories about atmospheric chemical spraying’

You’ve seen the contrails behind those high-flying jets – sometimes making crisscrossing patterns in the sky – above your home, your town, your city.

And you’ve heard the rumors. The government is spraying toxic chemicals, gene-altering concoctions, testing weapons of war.

But the first peer-reviewed study published on these mysterious “chemtrails,” as they are often called, found they are not the result of governments covertly conducting experiments on the public.

They’re just plain old water vapor.

Rather than “chemtrails,” say the researchers, they are actually “contrails,” which is short for condensation that produces water vapor that freezes around aerosols in the aircraft exhaust.

“We wanted to establish a scientific record on the topic of secret atmospheric spraying programs for the benefit of those in the public who haven’t made up their minds,” said lead researcher Steven Davis from the University of California, Irvine. “The experts we surveyed resoundingly rejected contrail photographs and test results as evidence of a large-scale atmospheric conspiracy.”

To find out what was going on, the team interviewed 77 scientists who should know what they’re talking about – they were either atmospheric chemists who specialize in condensation trails, or geochemists working on atmospheric deposition of dust and pollution.

It’s true: College is driving your kids insane

New research suggests campus life inculcates anger, anxiety, degradation, depression, suicide.

Americans are understandably alarmed at the hordes of “migrants” and “refugees” streaming into this country, many steeped in worldviews profoundly opposed to Western, democratic values, and thus not only unlikely to assimilate, but even posing a danger to the nation.

But what about the hordes of young adults streaming into American society from this country’s colleges, many of them likewise indoctrinated in a worldview utterly antithetical to bedrock American values and who are not only ignorant of, but contemptuous toward, this nation’s unique system of individual liberty, Judeo-Christian morality and limited government?

Like the legions entering America from adversarial foreign cultures, many of these “new arrivals” from totalitarian campus cultures are also likely to come into serious conflict with a constitutional republic which, as John Adams said, was “fit only for a moral and religious people.”

Today’s news reports increasingly feature bizarre, unbelievable stories from America’s colleges. For example, one recent viral video report documented almost 60 Yale students enthusiastically signing a petition to repeal the First Amendment – the part of the Bill of Rights that guarantees their own right to freedom of speech, religion, the press, assembly and, ironically, to petition!

Ancient DNA sheds light on Irish origins

Scientists have sequenced the first ancient human genomes from Ireland, shedding light on the genesis of Celtic populations.

The genome is the instruction booklet for building a human, comprising three billion paired DNA “letters”.

The work shows that early Irish farmers were similar to southern Europeans.

Genetic patterns then changed dramatically in the Bronze Age – as newcomers from the eastern periphery of Europe settled in the Atlantic region.

Details of the work, by geneticists from Trinity College Dublin and archaeologists from Queen’s University Belfast are published in the journal PNAS.

Team members sequenced the genomes of a 5,200-year-old female farmer from the Neolithic period and three 4,000-year-old males from the Bronze Age.

Opinion has been divided on whether the great transitions in the British Isles, from a hunting lifestyle to one based on agriculture and later from stone to metal use, were due to local adoption of new ways by indigenous people or attributable to large-scale population movements.

Intelligence genes discovered by scientists

Imperial College London has found that two networks of genes determine whether people are intelligent or not so bright.

Genes which make people intelligent have been discovered and scientists believe they could be manipulated to boost brain power.

Researchers have believed for some time that intellect is inherited with studies suggesting that up to 75 per cent of IQ is genetic, and the rest down to environmental factors such as schooling and friendship groups.

But until now, nobody has been able to pin-point exactly which genes are responsible for better memory, attention, processing speed or reasoning skills.

Now Imperial College London has found that two networks of genes determine whether people are intelligent or not-so-bright.

They liken the gene network to a football team. When all the players are in the right positions, the brain appears to function optimally, leading to clarity of thought and what we think of as quickness or cleverness.

However when the genes are mutated or in the wrong order, it can lead to dullness of thinking, or even serious cognitive impairments.

Scientists believe that there must be a ‘master switch’ regulating the networks and if they could find it, they could ‘switch on’ intelligence for everyone.

Where is Everybody? Why Haven’t We Found Extra-Terrestrials? (Video)

With millions of solar systems in our galaxy, you would think we would have found extra-terrestrial intelligent lifeforms by now… so why haven’t we?

Alarm sounded on government’s ‘genetics’ survey

Constitutional lawyer: ‘I find this very troubling’

A veteran and constitutional attorney who is suing the Veterans Administration for threatening to deprive some returning troops of their 2nd Amendment rights after classifying them as mentally incompetent is warning his fellow veterans of a new VA program designed to extract personal information that could be used against them.

The Million Veterans Program is a voluntary research program funded by the VA that is supposedly designed to study veterans’ genetics and health, writes attorney Michael Connelly, the executive director of the United States Justice Foundation

But Connelly warns that the veterans “are asked to not only provide information on their physical health, but also their mental and emotional health, and that of their family members.”

The request is significant, he contends, because of the VA’s distribution of letters to certain veterans, as WND was first to report, warning they could be declared incompetent, assigned an advocate to handle their affairs and stripped of their 2nd Amendment rights. The letters are the target of Connelly’s lawsuit.

Early Britons: Have we underestimated our ancestors?

Have we underestimated the first people to resettle Britain after the last Ice Age? Evidence from a variety of sources suggests that early Britons were more sophisticated than we could have imagined.

Archaeologists once thought that the story of the early hunter-gatherer Britons was lost to the mists of time.

The hunter-gatherers left almost no trace of their nomadic existence behind.

As a result, the stone-age settlers of ancient Britain were thought of as simple folk, living a brutal hand-to-mouth existence.

But now, evidence is emerging that turns those assumptions upside down. Archaeological sites all over the UK and northern Europe are producing evidence that paints these people in a very different light.

Thanks to this cutting-edge science, we now have an increasingly clear picture of prehistory, and the adaptable, culturally rich, and sophisticated people who inhabited these islands.

A BBC Horizon documentary, to screen on Wednesday, tells the story of this quest to understand the first Britons.

Some of these Mesolithic, or Middle Stone Age, people lived at Blick Mead, Wiltshire – a few miles away from the future site of Stonehenge.

Want good readers? Keep kids from school, parents told

‘And you’re better off’ teaching children before they learn ‘wrong methods’

If parents want their children to be good readers, they should keep them away from public schools.

The advice came during a recent “Eagle Forum Live” radio show with conservative legend Phyllis Schlafly, who is known for her effort to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment.

She was interviewing international journalist and educator Alex Newman, who contends public schools are harming children by teaching the “whole-word method” of reading, which had children memorize words rather than sound them out phonetically.

“The fact is if you want your child to be a reader, you have to do it [teach reading] yourself,” Schlafly said Saturday on her show. “And you’re better off to do it when the kid is 5 or 6 years old, maybe even 4, than to try to wait ’til after he’s had some of the wrong methods taught to him.”

Explained Newman: “If you actually look at the neuroscience and the brain scans that they do on the children who learned how to read using the whole-word method versus the phonics method, you see that there’s actual brain problems in the people who learned using the whole-word method, because you’re trying to get the right brain to do a left-brain function.”

Bill Nye “Science Guy’s” UNBELIEVABLE #EarthDay Hypocrisy…

Earth Day, much like anything having to do with liberals and/or the environment, leads to a lot of sanctimonious hypocrisy. You know, those times where South Park comes to life.

Last night, Bill Nye the Marketing Major “Science” Guy threw out the ceremonial first pitch for Earth Day…

Heading down to DC to catch an #EarthDay flight on Air Force One tomorrow with the President. We’re going to #ActOnClimate.

— Bill Nye (@BillNye) April 21, 2015

I see. So let me get this straight. Fossil fuels are one of the many, many, many things the liberals claim causes man made global climate warming change. Kind of the main thing. So Bill Nye, a “science” guy, in order to #actonclimate, is going to take a fossil fueled airplane to go to Washington DC, where he’s going to hop on another fossil fueled plane to lecture people about how to best take care of Mother Earth. Actually, I should probably fact check that. Did the White House waste tax payer dollars converting AirForce One to run on vegetable oil? They waste most our tax dollars, so I suppose there’s a chance.
