The CEO of fast-food restaurant Jack in the Box said “it just makes sense” to replace cashiers with robots due to the minimum wage increase in California. “As we see the rising costs of labor, it just makes sense” to swap cashiers with kiosks where customers can order their food themselves, CEO Leonard Comma said Tuesday at the ICR Conference in Orlando, Fla., Business Insider reported.
Recent research indicates that our increasingly Wi-Fi saturated environment could be greatly amplifying the dangers of mercury exposure from dental amalgams.
By Sayer Ji, GreenMedInfo.com
A new study published in the Journal of Neuroimmunology entitled, “Effect of radiofrequency radiation from Wi-Fi devices on mercury release from amalgam restorations,” reveals that our now ubiquitous exposure to Wi-Fi radiation may be amplifying the toxicity of dental amalgams and other forms of mercury exposure to the human body.
Brazilian researchers, in what appears to be the first study of its kind, looked specifically at the potential for Wi-Fi signals to increase the release of mercury from dental amalgams, which are composed of approximately 50% elemental mercury.
Rosemary is a wonderful herb with a tradition of use spanning millennia. It has innumerable uses in both the kitchen and in herbal medicine.
Did you know that rosemary has been associated with memory enhancement since ancient times?
It is true – and it has even been referred to from the latter part of the Elizabethan Era to the Early Romantic period as the herb of remembrance. In Shakespeare’s Hamlet, Ophelia says, “There’s rosemary, that’s for remembrance.” (Hamlet, iv. 5.)
It has also long been used as a symbol for remembrance during weddings, war commemorations and funerals in Europe and Australia.  Mourners in old times would wear it as a buttonhole, burn it as incense or throw it into graves as a symbol of remembrance for the dead.
It seems that this tradition of Rosemary may actually far more ancient and have its origins in the Arabic world of medieval times, which was greatly advanced in science: In Henry Lyte’s 1578 “Niewe Herball“, an English version of Rembert Dodoens’ French treatise, it is written “The Arrabians and their successors Physitions, do (more…)
New expedition in Laptev Sea suggests increase in the rate of underwater permafrost degradation.
The findings come from an expedition now underway led by Professor Igor Semiletov, of Tomsk Polytechnic University, on the research vessel ‘Academic M.A. Lavrentyev’ which left Tiksi on 24 September on a 40 day mission.
The seeping of methane from the sea floor is greater than in previous research in the same area, notably carried out between 2011 and 2014.
‘The area of spread of methane mega-emissions has significantly increased in comparison with the data obtained in the period from 2011 to 2014,’ he said. ‘These observations may indicate that the rate of degradation of underwater permafrost has increased.’
Detailed findings will be presented at an international conference in Tomsk on 21 to 24 November. The research enables comparison with previously obtained data on methane emissions.
Dr Semiletov and his team are paying special attention to clarify the role of the submarine permafrost degradation as a factor in emissions of the main greenhouse gases – carbon dioxide and methane – in the atmosphere.

Violent crime is up by nearly 4 percent across the US, while seven cities drove the biggest single-year increase in homicide rates since 1971, says a newly released annual crime report that is causing ripples ahead of the first presidential debate.
The FBI’s Uniform Crime Report (UCR) program defines violent crimes as those offenses that involve force or threat of force, and includes murder and non-negligent manslaughter, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. As the FBI’s definition of rape was changed in 2015, the report contains figures pertaining to the “legacy” definition, the bureau said.
The annual UCR is put together by the FBI from data provided by law enforcement agencies around the country. The 2015 report was released Monday.
With an estimated 372.6 violent crimes per 100,000 inhabitants, the crime rate rose 3.1 percent in comparison to 2014.

There is not one single medical doctor in the United States of America who talks to their patients about good gut flora. Likewise, no oncologists or pediatricians dare speak about good gut bacteria, or they would immediately be contradicting the effects of the very medications they recommend and prescribe on a daily basis.
There are eight major destroyers of good gut flora: chemical pesticides, prescription pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, fluoride in tap water, bleach in foods, phosphoric acid in soda, chemotherapy and the heavy metal toxins in vaccines (including flu shots). Since the early 1900s, the American Medical Association (AMA) has removed nutritional education almost entirely from medical college curricula, replacing it all with chemistry classes so that medical doctors could learn to juggle multiple prescription medications for their patients, and not be sued for malpractice if someone dies from mixing the wrong ones.

There has been a fivefold rise in the number of slavery victims in England and Wales since 2012, according to the Salvation Army.
The charity says it has supported 1,805 people from April 2015 to March 2016. That’s compared to 378 referrals between July 2011 and June 2012 – the first year of the government contract to support victims.
In the past five years, the group has helped nearly 4,500 modern slaves, but Home Office figures estimate there are still between 10,000 and 13,000 slaves in the UK.
Almost half of its referrals had been sexually exploited, 42 percent were victims of labor exploitation working within industries such as agriculture and construction, and 13 percent had been held in domestic servitude, the Salvation Army says.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says Ankara will take a more active role in addressing the conflict in Syria in the next six months to prevent the country from splintering along ethnic lines. “Turkey we will be more active in the Syria issue in the coming six months as a regional player. This means to not allow Syria to be divided on any ethnic base, for Turkey this is crucial,” Yildirim said at a news conference in Istanbul.
Yildirim also said that President Bashar al-Assad may have a role in the transitional period but not in Syria’s future.
Kurdish groups have begun carving out their own regions in Syria as they are fighting groups from Syria’s Arab majority seeking to overthrow Assad. Turkey is afraid that strong Kurdish militant groups in Syria will encourage its own Kurdish insurgency.
Yildirim also ruled out any new peace initiative with Turkey’s outlawed Kurdish rebels saying Ankara would not “enter into a dialogue with a terror organization.”
