Alan @ #6
All your comments would certainly be true for any real attempt at medication created to administer an actual dose of the original agent. My understanding of homeopathy is that they use such a vast dilution series in preparing their little pills that dose just isn’t a i…

As long as the “remedies” are prepared correctly, babies are more likely to suffer harm from the lack of real treatment.
As is indicated in the OP and as I indicate @#3 and #4, the problems in this case appear to be:-

Five of the most significant news outlets have been castigated as fake news.
CNN and the NY Times now banned from briefings.
This is a bona fide crisis.
If I was one of their reporters, I would simply report what other people and other governments had to say about the activities of Trump and co.,…[Read more]

Further to my comment @#3 –
With wild herbs, there is also the issue of incompetence in identification of plants, leading to variations in any extracts from them.
Checking the “safety” of the wrong plant, is very dangerous if harvesting is mixed, or people lacking botanical identification skills are reading recipes in books!
In genera whi…[Read more]
Meanwhile in the UK the clueless ideological Jeremy Corbyn is still supported by his loony left, and his minority of MPs, and has just led his party into losing a long held Labour seat in the Copeland, by-election despite the unpopularity of the present government!

If there was a plan to destroy the United States, the quickest and most effective method, would be to employ powerful financially and status rewarded “useful idiots” as a dominating elite, to destroy the federal government – (along with the expert science and technology base), and then to instigate US-Mexican-Trump-style “diplomacy” between the…[Read more]

Well this particular scheme is absolutely a disaster (unless you’re one of the ones laughing all the way to the bank):
Yep! – It demonstrates the the ability of ideological politicians (who do not seek expert advice or do not know where to seek expert advice), to mess up even potentially b…[Read more]
@OP – link – “Oh god the stupid Pluto stories are back. Yes, someone has proposed making Pluto a planet again. No, nothing is changed or new,” Brown tweeted Tuesday (Feb. 21). “Also, I should note, that proposal would make the moon a planet. Which is about 500 years out of date. But, ok #MakeTheMoonGreatAgain,” he added in another tweet.

I see this grossly misleading negative information is being circulated by denialists!

Using wood pellets to generate low-carbon electricity is a flawed policy that is speeding up not slowing down climate warming.

@#2 – The big bergs that break away from Antarctica are monitored from space.
They will often drift out into the Southern Ocean where they can become a hazard to shipping.
Of course Trump could cut NASA’s space monitoring of this glacial and oceanographic climate science, but then the shipping companies and their insurers, endangered by…[Read more]

@OP – Around 3:25 a.m. ET, according to NASA TV, the navigation system on the unmanned Dragon cargo ship detected an error. A number was wrong in its GPS software. The ship automatically aborted its mission. It was about three-quarters of a mile away from the space station.
These sorts of numerical errors have caused problems with quite a…[Read more]

Perhaps some examples can explain the illusion / delusion!
If you stand on top of the peak of a mountain on an isolated desert island, and look out to sea in any direction, the horizon appears to be the same distance away, and you appear to be at the centre of your world!
If you look out into space with a telescope of a given magnification, you…[Read more]

@OP – Leading this immoral, sadistic campaign is a heartless man named Alex Jones, who uses his media might to perpetually lie about Sandy Hook, claiming that the shooting was fake, and blatantly taunting the parents of the children who were murdered there.
And Alex Jones is supported and encouraged by our current president. In fact, just…
