Federal Quarantine Powers Quietly Expanded without Congressional Approval*

Federal Quarantine Powers Quietly Expanded without Congressional Approval*

Your right to be left unthreatened in your own home could be at risk. Here’s what you need to know. Action Alert!

In January of this year, on the last day President Obama was in office, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a final rule that expands its authority to apprehend, isolate, and quarantine individuals suspected of having any of nine diseases on the US quarantine list: cholera, plague, diphtheria, smallpox, yellow fever, infectious tuberculosis, viral hemorrhagic fevers (like Ebola), severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and varieties of influenza that may cause pandemic.

This is the first time the quarantine rules have been updated since the 1940s. Under the old system, the CDC’s authority to quarantine was limited primarily to those entering the country or crossing state lines. And even then, in practice, the feds typically deferred to state and local health officials to contain the spread of infectious diseases.

Under the new rules, the CDC can detain people anywhere in the country without getting approval from local health officials. The definition of “ill persons” has also been broadened, which means that the agency can detain a broader group of people it thinks are exhibiting the symptoms of infectious disease—symptoms as common and as wide-ranging as headaches, cramps, and fevers. Airline and ship crews are required under the new rules to report overt signs and symptoms of sick travelers to the CDC.

Additionally, the CDC can quarantine you for seventy-two hours before the case is subject to a review—and that review is conducted by (you guessed it) the CDC.

Some health authorities fear that the CDC’s power grab will have the opposite effect. Fearing new draconian quarantine rules, as well as surveillance from a flight crew, sick people will likely take additional measures to hide an illness.

The final rule stipulates that when a person is quarantined, medical examinations and treatments can only be performed with prior informed consent. This was only won through a vocal backlash of concerned citizens. But if you have been forcibly removed from your home, how much freedom of medical care choice do you have left?

The rule specifically mentions measles and pertussis, and allows the CDC to monitor travelers displaying common symptoms of those illnesses. Note that measles and pertussis are non-quarantinable diseases—for now. But state health officials can quarantine individuals for certain communicable diseases, depending on state law. Massachusetts has perhaps the most harshly authoritarian law of this kind that we’ve seen. The state can remove you from your home pretty much anytime they want to do so.

While stopping the spread of deadly infectious diseases is laudable, it is unacceptable to pursue this goal at the expense of Americans’ most basic civil liberties, such as the right to remain in their homes unmolested by government.

Action Alert! Send a message to the CDC (with a copy to Congress) telling them that the final quarantine rule is unacceptable and must be amended to respect our most basic rights, and that such rule changes should only be made with congressional approval—and not by bureaucrats. Please send your message immediately.

Public Buses in Aleppo take to the Streets after 5 Years of U.S.’s ISIS war on Syria*

The western mainstream media will never show you this video…it would destroy the narrative they tried so hard to peddle about “moderate rebels” and Assad barrel bombs.

Thank you Ruptly TV for this rare look at a city, and its people, returning to a sense of normality after being held hostage by US, Saudi, and Turkey supported Al Qaeda and ISIS jihadists, for over 5 years of terror.

This is what freedom and liberation looks like. The smiles on the faces on passengers. People walking in the streets, going about their normal lives.

Aleppo’s public transport system is slowly returning to normal. Buses cleaned and sent out into service, after five years of inactivity.

We could not even begin to imagine the terror that would have been in Aleppo had the Obama Administration had its way, and raised up a black ISIS flag over the city.

Look no further than Libya to see what was avoided in Aleppo…and finally, F*** YOU mainstream media for reporting fake news that would have destroyed the future of these people rising the bus.

U.S. Deploying Thousands More Ground Troops to Kuwait to Fight in Iraq and Syria*

By Jason Ditz

Instead of directly deploying thousands of additional ground troops into Iraq or Syria, the sort of precipitous escalation that might get Congress voting on the war, the Trump Administration appears to have decided that the solution is to send thousands of  U.S. ground troops to Kuwait, and let the commanders in Iraq and Syria just take what they want.

Early reports of this strategy emerged Wednesday, when officials said there were considerations of sending around 1,000 troops into Kuwait for this operation. Just two days later, the figure was up to at least 2,500, with signs that it is continuing to grow all the time.

While President Obama was micromanaging the escalations, particularly in Iraq, where every couple of weeks another hundred or two troops would be sent, the Trump Administration appears to be throwing the troops into a big pile and leaving the deployments up to the commanders.

This adds credence to the sense that President Trump is going to be a bit more hands-off on his escalations, giving the military commanders additional leeway on actions, and even on troop levels, which is likely to raise further questions about what those commanders intend to do in the war, if they no longer have to get permission first.

Plant Neurobiology Shows How Trees are Just Like Humans*

Plant Neurobiology Shows How Trees are Just Like Humans*

By Sarah Ripper

Understanding the Connection

You have more in common with trees than you think. It’s not such a weird idea when the emerging field of plant neurobiology is seeing increasing collaborations with other fields into the nature of plant intelligence. These studies are prompting scientists and spiritual communities, such as Damanhur, to reconsider the scope of communication and adaptation found in nature.

From a spiritual perspective, plants can be viewed as the ultimate alliance for human beings as all life forms part of a spiritual ecosystem where matter and form co-exist. Within this co-existence, the environment is an integral part of leading a holistic and balanced life. Science is beginning to echo what indigenous peoples, tree-huggers, shamans and spiritual teachers have been saying for a very long time. We do have far more in common with our leafy friends than we once thought.

Is being more sensitive to plant’s feelings the key to future adaptation? Well, plants have scientifically documented senses just like humans and animals. Thanks to plant neurobiology’s use of human analogies we can begin to understand how plants experience senses. According to Professor Stefano Mancuso, who leads the International Laboratory for Plant Neurobiology at the University of Florence, plants are a lot more sensitive than animals. He discovered that the very root apex of a plant has the capacity to detect 20 different physical and chemical parameters including gravity, light, magnetic field pathogens and more.

Plants have genes similar to those of an animal nervous system, specific proteins that have been shown to have definite roles in neural function and whilst they are not exactly the same as those found in animals, they are believed to behave in very similar ways. Through recognizing the sensory capacity of the ‘wood wide web’, a term coined by Professor Suzanne Simard, to describe the interconnectedness of trees, perhaps we’ll look at their sensory expressions a little differently.

The Importance of Our Plant Life

We know we need plants to live. With a rapidly altering natural environment, human population increasing, and changes in weather patterns, particularly precipitation, it’s important for us to know how plants sense, adapt and respond to their environment if we are interested in protecting biodiversity, eating plant-based ingredients and, you know, breathing clean air. Professor Daniel Chamovitz of What a Plant Knows regards the complex biology of plants as being completely underappreciated and underestimated, and claims that if we do not embrace and learn from the amazing complexity of plant life, we may find a host of big problems awaiting us in 50 to 100 years time.

The ‘wood wide web’ describes the interconnectedness of trees, through their root systems.

 

According to Damanhur’s founder, Falco Tarassaco, during the past few decades more old growth forests have been destroyed than throughout humankind’s presence since the Palaeolithic period. He claimed that within 50 years, 50% of all our planets trees have been felled.

“Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better. – Albert Einstein

If we take a closer look, here are a few things we humans have in common with trees.

We Experience Time

We both experience the passing of time. From a Damanhurian perspective, plants have a longer and slower experience of time and life than humans, and an ability to store collective memory. Trees synthesize subtle and gross forms of energy to feed themselves – light, water, and nutrients from the soil; the quantity and quality playing a key role in their overall health and vitality. The electrical signals in a tree’s tissues travel approximately one to two seconds per inch meaning their reaction to events takes place within minutes, hours or days. Because these signals can take several minutes to travel from the crown of the tree to the roots, trees simultaneously transfer information through chemical signals sent out from their leaves.

We Need Food and Rest

A recent Hungarian-Finnish-Austria study showed us that trees also need their rest with the circadian rhythm being measured by the drooping of leaves overnight, seen as a form of tree sleep. Using laser scanners, so as not to disturb the exposure the trees had to light, the branches of 5-metre birch trees progressively drooped by 8 to 10 centimetres, with their lowest position right before sunrise, and then returning to full form a few hours after sunrise. It has not yet been determined whether the rays of the sun, the trees’ own inner rhythm or a combination of the two induce this tree sleep.

We Digest

Humans, animals, and plants share some digestive similarities, microbiological similarities – all of them sustain microcolonies that in turn sustain them. A plant uses their external ‘guts’ (roots) which somewhat simplifies the study, in comparison to the internal human and animal guts. Yet scientists have found the microbial ecologies that reside in all these forms of life and considerably impact the development, health, and wellbeing of their respective hosts.

These microbial helpers share similar job descriptions as they play a key role in gene expression, metabolic processes, and protection against pathogens, and even share evolutionary trends. Just as food quality and choices affect the human digestive system and well-being, so too does the soil health affect the health of plant life.

“If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. – Gautama Buddha

We Pass on Information

Both humans and plant life have an intergenerational exchange of knowledge.

Damanhurian researchers claim that if we detach from the green brain (the collective plant knowledge of the planet), we detach from a connection with planetary memory. This connection serves humankind in terms of biodiversity and spiritual knowledge, as well as limiting the knowledge we can access of the human and planetary experience, which goes well beyond what has been documented by historians in various world cultures.

Plants communicate by releasing chemicals (picture credit: Robert Krulwich.)

 

Scientists are discovering not only that neurotransmitter molecules facilitate cell-to-cell communication, and that the exchanging of carbon from a dying tree to its neighbours has been measured, but also that the study of plant intelligence requires an integrated approach to plant signalling, adaptive behaviour and it’s potential impacts for the future. It also reflects back to us this cyclical and intrinsic collective coexistence. We are not as dissimilar to plant or animal life as we think we are. We grow, we shed, and we adjust to the seasonal rhythm of our climate. Just as modern mystic Sadhguru said:

“You may attach much of your birth, life, and death, but for Mother Earth, it is just a recycling process.

The knowledge that is exchanged between trees can be viewed akin to the intergenerational passing on of mythology, language, or family stories, tribal information or spiritual teachings.

“Nature does nothing without purpose or uselessly. – Artistotle

We Have Social Networks

The interconnectedness of trees is taken further by German forester and author, Peter Wohlleben, in his best-selling book the Hidden Life of Trees, which draws on revolutionary scientific discoveries as well as many anthropomorphic examples to describe the social network and family structure of trees. Wohllenben explains how tree parents ‘suckle their children’ and suggests that mother trees even have favourites! These family chats enable trees to share nutrients with those who are sick or struggling, warn of forthcoming dangers or adjust to weather conditions such as droughts by altering their water consumption strategies to conserve energy.

Plants interact as a community, working together to sustain life.

 

Through understanding forests as a network, Wohlleben believes foresters and plantation workers are able to foster healthier trees producing more timber and living possibly double the lifespan if their social network is not interrupted by thinning methods which leaves a tree ‘single’. For trees in protected natural habitats, the social relationships amongst and between species have another level of depth.

“This world is indeed a living being endowed with a Soul and intelligence… a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related. – Plato

The green brain of knowledge and social network mirrors our human family’s, or community’s, need to belong and contribute to the whole. Damanhurian teachings ask people to consider that what we see of a tree is actually the plant’s skeleton; the rest of it is its energy system. The trees’ aura contains parts of its form that cannot be seen by the untrained eye but can be felt with practice when sensitizing the hands to feel the subtle energy and walking around the tree to feel its aura.

Plants too have auric fields. Left: Organic mushroom, right: Commercially grown.

 

These processes are subtle, and their capacity to be measured by our physical senses or diagnostic tools is limited. However, the Music of the Plants device is a bridge to this type of understanding, whereby the plants’ vibration is converted into musical tones and communicated to humans. The plants have to ‘learn’ how to use this device and, through years of experimentation, Damanhurians have observed that plants tend to do a scale once they are connected to the machine, just before they play. They think this is for the plant to understand the tonal possibilities. It’s also been observed that potted plants have a higher pitch than plants in the ground. I saw a potted plant connected to the device ‘jam’ with an old oak tree it was placed beside. The difference in tone and ‘call and response’ was a tangible and fascinating example of plant communication.

We Have the Potential for Continual Evolution and Innovation

The observation of plant signaling, communication, adaptive behavior and purposeful interrelating with other trees fuels plant science, and its potential applications and implications for sustainability and research. As human consciousness expands, perhaps so too does the scope science is capable of measuring and considering. Biomimicry has already seen an exciting shift in seeking solutions for problems through nature’s answers – from mosquito inspired ‘nicer needles’, to what termites can reveal about construction. A new field of bio-robotics is also developing which could also be used for lots of purposes, including space applications or environmental monitoring.

Understanding the importance of plant life helps us to better conserve and care for them.

 

Emerging planetoid robots are using the natural function of plant intelligence to gather data for scientific research. This would have a trunk, branches, and leaves, just as a real plant, along with artificial roots, which would be constructed from 3D printers. These robots could be tailor made for specific needs to further our understanding of the environment both on this planet and beyond. With what we are beginning to learn about plants and their thinking, sleeping, and family relationships and their applications, a new chapter is emerging. As we expand what there is to know, we expand our possibilities.

World Bank to Reduce Venezuela Payout in Exxon Case*

World Bank to Reduce Venezuela Payout in Exxon Case*

By Ryan Mallett-Outtrim

A World Bank tribunal partially overturned a US$1.6 billion ruling against Venezuela over the nationalisation of Exxon Mobil assets.

The announcement was first made by the Venezuelan government’s lawyers, who claimed the original decision by the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSD) had been “annulled”.

“We were confident all along that our position was correct and are very pleased that the annulment committee agreed,” Venezuela’s lawyer George Kahale told Reuters.

However, a ruling published on the ICSD’s website Thursday only stated that “portions” of the overall award were overturned.

Exxon is yet to confirm any details of the changes to the payout. Company spokesperson Todd Spitler told Reuters,

“Exxon Mobil will continue to evaluate its legal rights and determine next steps.”

International lawyer Russ Dallen said Exxon will likely appeal the latest decision.

“Under ICSID rules, Exxon Mobil now has the right to request the resubmission of the dispute to another new tribunal to again look at the original award in the case,” Dallen told the Latin American Herald Tribune.

“I would imagine that ExxonMobil cannot be happy with this outcome after 10 years of litigation and the loss of its investment and will resubmit its defence of the award for a second opinion,” he said.

Venezuela and Exxon’s decade old legal dispute began after the government moved to nationalise almost all of Venezuela’s oil sector in 2007. During the wave of nationalisations that followed, the government purchased two major Exxon projects – Cerro Negro and La Ceiba. While 20 other oil firms agreed to the Venezuelan government’s payout offers, Exxon and one other – ConocoPhillips – accused the government of low balling them, and sought arbitration.

Exxon originally demanded compensation of up to US$10 billion, but in 2014 the ICSD ruled Venezuela would only have to pay out US$1.6 billion. Even then, the government said it expected to whittle that figure down to US$1 billion through appeals. One of Venezuela’s key demands was for the reward to be reduced by $908 million. That figure represents an amount Venezuela has already been ordered to pay Exxon in a separate case at the Paris-based International Chamber of Commerce.

In 2015, at the request of Venezuela the ICSD agreed to form an annulment panel. That panel has now concluded the original ICSD overstepped its mandate.

Even without the new payout figure being officially announced, Venezuela has already welcomed the panel’s decision as a major victory. Earlier this month, the country’s central bank released bleak new figures, including data showing foreign reserves have fallen to US$10.5 billion. In January 2016, the bank reported reserves were at US$16.27 billion. In 2011, that figure was closer to US$30 billion.

However, Venezuela still has more than 20 pending cases before the ICSD, such as the multi-million dollar dispute with oil services company Tidewater.

The government also has a handful of cases in U.S. courts, including a legal battle with mining firm Rusoro worth US$1.2 billion, and another with Crystallex worth US$1.4 billion.

A private lending arm of the World Bank is not ‘ending poverty,’ it is ‘ending the lives of the poor,’ says one farmer

Honduran farmers on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against a branch of the World Bank for funding a massive palm oil corporation that the suit alleges has been responsible for the killings of over 100 farmers, as well as torture, violent assaults, and “other acts of aggression.”

The World Bank has “knowingly profited from the financing of murder,” argues the lawsuit filed in a federal court in Washington, D.C.

We have lost our compañeros, they have left our children without fathers, it’s been difficult to move forward, we live from our families and our land and now we are left with nothing,” said one of the farmers, according to EarthRights International (ERI), the nonprofit which filed the suit on the farmers’ behalf.

All the farmers named in the suit were protected by the pseudonyms Juan Doe and Juana Doe, to shield them from retaliation on the part of the palm oil company, Dinant.

“We want justice and the ability to raise our children again,” the farmer added.

“We have to move forward.” The suit is requesting damages for specific deaths.

The suit alleges that the “International Financial Corporation (IFC), the World Bank Group’s private lending arm, together with an IFC financial intermediary, the IFC Asset Management Corporation, have provided millions of dollars in financing to Dinant, even though, at the time, there were widespread allegations that Dinant employed hit men, military forces, and private security guards to intimidate and kill local farmers who claim Dinant’s owner stole their land decades prior,” ERI wrote in a statement.

The rights advocacy organization continued:

The IFC (with U.S. taxpayer money) and IFC-AMC knowingly financed Dinant’s campaign of terror and dispossession against Honduran farmers. The IFC’s own internal watchdog, the Office of the Compliance Advisor/Ombudsman (CAO), found that IFC failed to adhere to its own policies to protect local communities, and continued to allow the company to breach those safeguards and either failed to spot or deliberately ignored the serious social, political and human rights context in which this company is operating.

The result was an explosion of extreme violence by public and private security forces against the farmers, their movement leaders, and lawyers representing them. Over 100 farmers have been killed since November 2009 when the IFC disbursed the first half of a $30 million loan to Dinant; and the number of killings continues to grow today. So too has IFC’s support for Dinant; even after the IFC’s internal watchdog scolded the IFC for the 2009 loan, the IFC continued supporting Dinant via an opaque system of financial intermediaries, including the IFC-AMC and the Honduran bank, Ficohsa.

The suit claims that the purpose of the systemic violence is to “intimidate farmers from asserting competing rights to land that Dinant has sought to control.”

“The horrendous spate of violence that followed the IFC’s loan to Dinant is probably one of the most severe instances of corporate-related human rights abuse and financier negligence in the past decade,” said one ERI lawyer, also unnamed because of security concerns.

Another Honduran farmer quoted by ERI described the horrific violence:

“The police pulled people out of their houses. Military, police, and guards. We saw they were beating people including kids, so we were yelling, ‘Don’t hit the people!’ One bullet hit me, it still affects my breathing. I didn’t realize I’d been shot, but I touched it and saw blood. Another person was shot through the stomach.”

“Every day I am scared, but this is how life has become,” said a different farmer.

“At the end of the attack against me, the guards and military told me that they know where I live and that they will come to get me if I file a complaint against them.”

ERI argues: “While the IFC boasts of its mission to ‘end extreme poverty by 2030 and boost prosperity in every developing country,’ the IFC has knowingly entered one of the world’s most persistent and abusive land conflicts on the side of Dinant, a primary author of poverty and violence in Honduras. In the words of one farmer in the Bajo Aguán, the IFC is not ‘ending poverty;’ it is ‘ending the lives of the poor.'”

“The IFC clearly cannot police itself and it should no longer be allowed to hide behind a veil of immunity,” an ERI lawyer said. “The courts of the United States must be open to hear this case because nobody—not individuals, not corporations, not governments, and not the IFC—can get away with aiding these human rights abuses.”

Honduras is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for land and rights defenders. In 2016 alone, multiple Indigenous activists—including Berta Cáceres, who won the Goldman Environmental Prize for her work—were killed.
