John Pilger: The majority vote by Britons to leave the European Union was an act of raw democracy. Millions of ordinary people refused to be bullied, intimidated and dismissed with open contempt by their presumed betters in the major parties, the leaders of the business and banking oligarchy and the media.

This was, in great part, a vote by those angered and demoralised by the sheer arrogance of the apologists for the “remain” campaign and the dismemberment of a socially just civil life in Britain. The last bastion of the historic reforms of 1945, the National Health Service, has been so subverted by Tory and Labour-supported privateers it is fighting for its life.

A forewarning came when the Treasurer, George Osborne, the embodiment of both Britain’s ancient regime and the banking mafia in Europe, threatened to cut £30 billion from public services if people voted the wrong way; it was blackmail on a shocking scale.

Angie Riedel: Thousands of years ago people lived in close-knit clans and the population of the world was only a tiny fraction of what it is now. People could go an entire life time without ever encountering a stranger. Unfortunately, sometimes strangers purposely encountered them.
The First Corporation

 

Sputnik News: Biometrics researchers at Michigan State University have teamed up with police to successfully unlock a murder victim’s smartphone using a digital recreation of their fingerprint.
Last month, Officials from MSU police’s cyber crime and digital forensics unit approached the biometric research department after realizing that research on how printed fingerprints can trigger mobile devices was being conducted on the same campus.

Katherine Martinko: After experiencing the “diseased” U.S. education system first-hand, Danish filmmaker Dan Stilling (who filmed “The Martian”) and American producer/writer Aimie Stilling head to Scandinavia to show how children are educated there, in stark contrast to the U.S. approach. The result is a beautiful 80-minute documentary that moves between the forests near Copenhagen to the fjords of northern Norway, looking at the unusual and truly wonderful ways in which Scandinavian children are taught. The film has been very well-received and has already won 5 international awards.

The fundamental difference shown in the film is the attitude that “Children belong in nature, and nature belongs in education.”…
Nature-Based Education System

 

Tara MacIsaac: People who were blind from birth have had brushes with death in which they felt themselves leave their bodies and experience vision for the first time. For some, it seemed natural; for others, it was a confusing and shocking experience.

Many people experience this sensation of leaving the body during a near-death experience (NDE). A 1982 Gallup poll found that 15 percent of all Americans who had almost died (under widely varying circumstances) reported NDEs. About 9 percent reported the “classic out-of-body experience,” 11 percent said they entered another realm, and 8 percent said they encountered spiritual beings.

For blind NDEers, the visual perceptions add another level of mystery.

Charley Cameron: Since NASA’s Dawn spacecraft began orbiting Ceres, the dwarf planet’s craters have raised a lot of questions–notably over why the bottom of some contain bright spots. But scientists have uncovered another puzzle where Ceres’ craters are concerned: the planet has almost certainly been struck by a number of large meteors over the past 4.5 billion years, but the craters those meteors would have left simply aren’t… there.

Dana Matthews: Perryville Battlefield was the site of the Kentucky’s deadliest battle, which makes it a prime candidate for being one of the most haunted locations in the entire state. Hundreds of ghost hunters have visited the historical site to investigate the claims of the paranormal activity, and more often than not, they’ve have returned with undeniable evidence of an otherworldly presence.
