Liver and kidney damage following chronic ultra-low dose Roundup exposure

To address this issue, a 2-year study in rats administering 0.1 ppb Roundup (50 ng/L glyphosate equivalent) via drinking water (giving a daily intake of 4 ng/kg bw/day of glyphosate) was conducted. A marked increased incidence of anatomorphological and blood/urine biochemical changes was indicative of liver and kidney structure and functional pathology.

BBC journalists covering Virginia shooting ‘threatened by police,’ forced to delete footage

Completely unconstitutional, and listen to the logic…

Strasser tweeted that he and McKelvey were told the footage “could be evidence,” and that they were forced to delete it.

Since when are the police in the destruction of evidence business?

…conclusions were altered to put the whole thing in a better light, which would also explain why reports with clearly negative revelations, like the one about a solid year of US airstrikes not significantly weakening ISIS, were incongruously concluded with claims that the war is going fine.

Retired Army General Says He’s ‘Ashamed To Be An American’ After Brutal Arrest By Police

But neighbors who witnessed this incident say it was “just blown out of proportion,” by the police, according to a neighbor who spoke with local WSB-TV.

UK surveillance “worse than 1984,” says new UN privacy chief

The newly appointed UN special rapporteur on privacy, Joseph Cannataci, has called the UK’s oversight of surveillance “a rather bad joke at its citizens’ expense,” and said that the situation regarding privacy is “worse” than anything George Orwell imagined in his novel 1984. Speaking to The Guardian, Cannataci said: “at least Winston [a character in Orwell’s 1984] was able to go out in the countryside and go under a tree and expect there wouldn’t be any screen, as it was called. Whereas today there are many parts of the English countryside where there are more cameras than George Orwell could ever have imagined. So the situation in some cases is far worse already.”

This straightforward biopic tells a crucial true story, but it lacks the excitement needed for a classic. I’ve considered, for the past day, how to turn the story of a philosopher/writer into a cinematic experience that would jump off the screen and sink the hook. It would probably need to abandon straight realism and instead become more fantastical.

Hannah Arendt was a political theorist and college professor who covered the trial of Adolf Eichmann for The New Yorker magazine. Eichman was snatched, in Buenos Aires, by Mossad agents in 1960 and taken to Jerusalem for a war crimes trial. Arendt, who had never seen the Nazis in person, wrote to The New Yorker requesting the assignment. The editor was glad to send her to cover the trial, but the world was unprepared for her analysis.
