Secret Meeting at Harvard Discusses Synthetic Humans*

Secret Meeting at Harvard Discusses Synthetic Humans*

The idea of creating a human out of chemicals in a lab may sound unsettling, but what may be more worrisome is that experts recently held a secret meeting to discuss the possibility.

Around 150 medical researchers convened at Harvard Medical School to contemplate the concept of building a human genome with chemicals and ultimately bringing that ‘person’ to life.

Indicative of how controversial the proposal might be, attendees at the conference were forbidden to talk to the media or tweet about the event.

The researchers spearheading the discussion likened the idea to the Human Genome Project only with the goal being to create a human genome rather than deciphering it.

When word of the meeting reached the greater scientific community, many expressed concern over the wealth of ethical issues which would arise from such an experiment.

Others expressed chagrin over the secretive nature of the discussion, saying that the clandestine conference was unusual for scientific researchers.

However one of the event’s organizers attempted to downplay the conspiratorial suspicions which may have been attached to the meeting by explaining that the secrecy was necessary due to an impending scientific paper.

They also downplayed the idea of creating parentless humans inside a lab and said that the research is more aimed at refining the creation of DNA.

Regardless of what the ultimate end result of the research might be, both proponents and critics will have plenty of time to debate the ethics of the idea since, for now, it is merely a concept.

But with our understanding of the human genome continuing to improve and the possibility looming far on the horizon, the secret Harvard meeting may have provided us with a troubling glimpse of our species’ future.

Thirty Syrian Boys Raped in Turkish Refugee Camp*

Thirty Syrian Boys Raped in Turkish Refugee Camp*

Thirty Syrian children were raped for months at a Turkish refugee camp and government authorities failed to notice, according to BirGün newspaper. It comes amid allegations that Turkey is not a safe country for asylum seekers.

The 30 boys were raped by a cleaner at Nizip Refugee Camp in Antep, from September 2015 until the beginning of 2016.

The rapist, identified only as E.E., has confessed that he lured children between the ages of eight and 12 to have sex with him in return for 2 to 5 Turkish Lira (US$.70-1.80). He is now in pre-trial detention.

In addition to E.E.’s confession, the children were able to describe in detail how they were raped in the toilets of the camp.

The families of eight children have so far come forward with a legal complaint. The rest of the families have not done so amid fears that they would be deported.

But despite the rapes taking place over the course of several months, they were never detected by the Prime Ministry Disaster and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD), which runs the camp. Instead, the rapes were only revealed after military personnel noticed the perpetrator taking children to the blind spots of cameras.

In response to the revelations, a high-ranking military officer from the camp told BirGün that the AFAD is to blame for the rapes.

“The AFAD is responsible of the camp and for this disaster,” he said.

But the AFAD wasn’t the only party unaware of the crimes taking place within the camp, which has a capacity of 14,000 refugees.

The site was praised for its standards last month, during a visit from German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Turkish Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, and various other Turkish government figures.

The shocking news comes amid reports of Turkish border control officers abusing and shooting Syrian refugees, prompting Amnesty International and other human rights organizations to claim that Turkey isn’t a “safe” place for asylum seekers.

But despite any controversy surrounding Turkey’s treatment of asylum seekers, the country is host to the largest number of refugees in the world, including 2.7 million Syrian refugees.

The E.U. and Turkey are currently aiming to work out a deal under which Ankara would take back all illegal migrants crossing into Greece from Turkey. In exchange, the E.U. would take in thousands of Syrian refugees directly from Turkey. Whether the agreement will be solidified remains to be seen, as it is currently in a deadlock, with both Brussels and Turkey seemingly refusing to budge.

Meanwhile, Europe continues to face the worst refugee crisis since World War II, with more than a million asylum seekers reaching the continent in 2015. Most of the refugees hail from war-torn Syria, where around 250,000 people have been killed and more than 12 million displaced since 2011, according to U.N. figures.

Threatened ISIS Declares Emergency in Self-declared Capital Raqqa, Syria*

Dreaded terror group Islamic State appears to be on the verge of being defeated in the key stronghold of Syria. The militant outfit has declared a state of emergency in their self-declared capital Raqqa in Syria.

According to a senior U.S. official involved in anti-ISIS operations, ISIS is moving personnel around the city and trying to put up covers in certain areas to shield potential targets from airstrikes and ground attacks.

“We have seen this declaration of emergency in Raqqa, whatever that means. We know this enemy feels threatened, as they should,” Steve Warren, the spokesman for the U.S.-led anti-ISIS coalition, said on Friday.

“They see the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), along with the Syrian Arab Coalition, manoeuvre both to their east and to their west,” Warren said.

“Both of these areas becoming increasingly secure, and the SDF increasingly able to generate their own combat power in those areas.”

SDF spokesman Tajir Kobani announced earlier this week that commanders of the SDF-affiliated groups in Northern Syria had coordinated plans for a joint final operation for liberating Raqqa from the ISIS.

The U.S. military have also detected the movement of fighters throughout Raqqa which could give overhead surveillance aircraft an improved chance of finding and targeting them.

Meanwhile, it is not clear if ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi still remains in or around Raqqa. However, the military are monitoring any potential intelligence that he could be in other locations as well.

“Baghdadi remains extremely careful about his personal security,” a U.S. defence official said, adding that America U.S. will continue to try to find him.

After a closed-door meeting with ex-Lebanese President Emil Lahoud, European Department for Security and Information (DESI) Secretary General Haissam Bou Said disclosed that Turkish intelligence operatives (MIT) met with ISIS top leaders in “Kellis and Barsous”, located at the Syrian Turkish border.

The intent of instructing them to “fabricate subversive operations inside Turkey, so that Erdogan will have the European Union backing to set up a 40 K buffer zone inside the Syrian territories, extending from Jrablus to Mara’a, in the North of Aleppo hinterlands.

The European Union is currently engineering a political settlement with Turkish President Rajab Tyyp Erdogan, stipulating for reducing the number of Syrian refugees in the West in return for endorsing the Turkish buffer zone.

Erdogan joined anti ISIS international coalition as a ploy to Strike at PKK locations in Kurdistan Qandeel Mountain and in South-East Turkey.

Syrian tribal sheikhs met in Qameshli to discuss Kurdish autonomy

 

Today, an explosion has been heard in the centre of Istanbul, beside a military barrack, resulted in the injury of several people. Our sources indicate the attack was planned and executed in coordination with other against civilians inside Syria and Iraq, part of a carefully coordinated terror offensive by Turkey and her allies against a wider number of targets soon to include Egypt, Macedonia, Armenia, Iran, Russia and Serbia.

A highly informed source from inside Turkey informed VT that Erdogan is a member of the Global Freemasonry Lodge which is supplying ISIS with weaponry and order the Group to pound the bordering areas to give Erdogan a pretext to make incursion into Syrian territories with the approval of the Turkish opposition.

“The Global Freemasonry Lodge seeks to ignite wars in the Middle East to keep the region in constant turbulences for the benefit of arms mongers and for the monopoly of gas and oil resources,” the source said.

“Erdogan is making up the excuses now to drag the U.S. and the NATO to a third World War with Russia on the Syrian soil,” the source added.

A highly informed Russian Source told VT “the seasoned Americans fear that eccentricity of Erdogan may draw the U.S. into unnecessary conflict with Russia.”

“Erdogan is currently quite capable of conducing desperate acts in Syria to get the Russians or the Syrians to attack the Turks. After all, he still hopes for the NATO involvement in this bloody conflict,” the source added.

DESI says that the Pentagon will install Patriot and other missile Systems at the Turkish-Syrian border that will include the town of Manbej, North of Aleppo for the same purpose. The U.S. will also support the implementation of the new Middle East Map which is compatible with the Israeli scheme and the Pentagon directives, in order to scramble out of the bottle-neck dilemma.

Regarding U.S.-Russian settlement for the Syrian crisis, Bou Said said

“President Assad will not bargain on the Syrian sovereignty national constants, and the fatal issues will be determined Kurd by the Syrian people.”

The U.S.-backed Kurdish forces and other belligerent factions in North East Syria already declared a self-autonomy there. U.S. military bases have been set up in Hasaka and Qameshli provinces for logistic reasons.

The Syrian tribes, who are devoid of any military support, cannot confront the Kurds who are armed with U.S. and European support. The Syrian Kurdish state is an extension to Iraqi Kurdistan, which embraces U.S. and Israeli intelligence and military bases.

Israel has always had good relations with Iraqi Kurds, especially with Masoud Al Barazani, who already declared his independence from the central government in Baghdad. However, it is speculated that the Kurds will become the “Trojan Horse” and a bargaining chip between international and regional powers which are struggling now to hammer out a political settlement for the Syrian crisis.

Finally, U.S.-led coalition fighter jets refrained from Striking ISIS deployment lines at Iraqi-Saudi border?? It remains to be seen.

Father Who Refused to Pay £120 Fine for Taking his Kids on Holiday Welcomes £13,000 Court Fees*

Father Who Refused to Pay £120 Fine for Taking his Kids on Holiday Welcomes £13,000 Court Fees*

By Danny Walker

Jon Platt’s high-profile case is being heard at the High Court today

A father who refused to pay £120 fine for taking his kids on holiday during term time has revealed legal fees of £13,000 will be ‘worth it’ if the ruling goes his way.

The landmark decision could take place later today if the High Court rules in favour of Jon Platt, the father who refused to pay the fine for taking his family on holiday during term time.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain earlier today Jon said it was not about the price of the holiday but about the principle.

It was revealed that for a family of four to take a break to Tenerife, Majorca, Costa Del Sol or Algarve, prices increase by up to 115%.

But Jon told Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway: “I was taking my kids on holiday and cost had nothing to do with it.

For 10 years I’d been trying to get a window where all of the family could go away.”

Mr Platt explained that it didn’t matter what time they went as the cost was the same, adding:

“We managed to get 15 of us [on the holiday] and the price was actually the same on the day we flew if we’d flown a week earlier.”

Ben quizzed the father on why he didn’t just accept the £120 fine as he knew the school’s policies.

“The local authority issued the fine as the head teacher had all discretion removed,” he replied, stating that the school had no say in the fines issued to the family.

I haven’t committed a criminal offence, so I thought I’m not paying the fine. [We’re in court today] so we’ll see what happens.

“Either they drop it and it will go away – I’ve asked them to drop it – but now we’ve ended up in court.”

Kate Garraway then stressed that Jon could face costs of up to £25K and if more people took their kids out of school when they wanted there would be chaos.

“Well if the law requires 100% attendance then it would say that, it doesn’t. My kids have really good attendance.

“They’ve never had less than 93% attendance.”

Jon then revealed that he’s already spent £13K on legal fees.

Jon was fined £60 by Isle of Wight Council after he took his six-year-old daughter out of school for a family trip to Walt Disney World.

The 44-year-old refused to pay up and after the fine was doubled, the issue went before the Isle of Wight Magistrates’ Court on October 12.

Mr Platt won the case after he successfully argued that Section 444 of the Education Act required parents to ensure their children attended school “regularly”, and did not put restrictions on taking them on holidays in term time.

He was fined again for taking his daughter to Lapland at Christmas – and has again refused to pay the fine.

The Isle of Wight Council has appealed the case, asking the High Court for clarification on the matter of law.

The ruling on Jon’s case is expected to come back at lunchtime today.

Viewers took to Twitter to wish Jon good luck, with one posting:

“Goodluck Jon. children miss school if there Ill so what is the difference with holidays!! They catch up on their learning (sic).”

Another viewer added: “good luck today Jon. My son (has autism) can’t cope with holidaying in peak times but we’d still face the fine. Not fair.”

While another agreed that companies shouldn’t “hike up their prices”.

They tweeted: “Good luck Jon Platt. I work in a school and can’t afford holidays because even caravan parks here hike there prices up 50%”

Why parents are fighting schools

In 2013, the Government tightened rules in England and Wales on taking kids out during term time.

Parents must get advance permission from the school’s head teacher if they want to take a holiday, or risk a £60 fine. This can double to £120 if it is not paid on time.

In Scotland, there is no fixed fine for taking your kids out of school.

The law is designed to help schools enforce good attendance, but parents argue it’s not flexible enough.

One mum opposed the rules after facing £120 in fines for taking her sons to visit their dying grandmother in Egypt .

Another mum of four is refusing to pay the fine because she says different term dates would have forced her to leave her 10-year-old daughter behind .

Jon Stewart Takes a Break from Retirement with Intelligent Discourse that’s Missing from the U.S. Elections*

When Jon Stewart was the host of The Daily Show, he rarely withheld his opinion of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. But since the comedian retired, he’s been mostly silent about the upcoming election as he focuses on the animal sanctuary he founded in New Jersey.

That recently ended when Stewart appeared on a podcast with President Obama’s former advisor, David Axelrod. As is made obvious in the video (above), Stewart still can’t stand Donald Drumpf.

During the podcast, Jon questions whether or not the “man-baby” is capable of leading a nation, referring to a previous podcast in which the business tycoon appeared.

“He is a man-baby.” Stewart said. “He has the physical countenance of a man, and a baby’s temperament and hands.”

He then dared to call Trump a “narcissistic asshole,” echoing the sentiments of thousands – if not millions – of people upset with the presidential contender’s repeated racist and sexist rhetoric.

Over the years, Stewart has made a routine of mocking Donald Trump. In 2013, however, after the comedian made a joke at the expense of the soon-to-be presidential contender, Trump took to Twitter to express his outrage. In typical fashion, he whined that he was “much smarter” than Stewart and described him as “totally overrated.”

It’s interesting to note that his attack pattern hasn’t changed much in the past few years. By referring to the comedian by his legal name, critics suspect Trump was seeking to demean Stewart by pointing out his Jewish ethnicity. His division-through-superiority tactic is, undoubtedly, what has won him racist, sexist, and anti-Semitic followers.
