Hell and How To Get There From Sweden "IndyWatch Feed National"

J.G. Olsen / Financial Expositor

Sweden was the plandemic role model, they were well known to be following a prudent strategy of doing nothing under PM Kjell Stefan Lfven whose seven-year run as PM ended with the political chaos in late 2021.

Watching on, Denmark, which is connected to Sweden by a long bridge, was the first country in Europe to abandon W.H.O. mandate directives.

The post-Lfven government wants to lead away from the long descent into Swedish socialism by making people work harder and also to abandon the famous Swedish neutrality, second only to Swiss neutrality, for a seat at NATO. Russia is saying the Swedes will be painting a target on themselves.

Strangely, the NATO bribe or coercion involved to Sweden is not questioned by the mainstream media; we are all supposed to rally behind the Zelensky meat-grinder failed operations directed from Kiev and this is apparently enough to explain the so-called decision. Swedish relations with Ukraine go back a long way.

The unusual colours of the ancient Swedish flag are echoed by the current Ukrainian flag, leading the question as to what might be the imperial connection. The city of Kiev has been invaded and over-run continuously for a millennium, by Turkish tribes, Khazars, Swedish Vikings, Mongols, and even Nazi Germany for more than two years during WWII.

Naturally, Kiev has an arms industry and the o...

Pesticides most harmful to bees "IndyWatch Feed National"

Pesticide use is one of the factors which may be affecting bee populations worldwide. Since much of our food production depends on pollination by bees, whether bee populations have been declining globally has been the source of concern and some confusion.  While there have been reports of declining bee numbers it is now thought that these are the result of local population changes and declining species richness  i.e. of particular species of bee.  As well as pesticide use, the cause of such declines could result from the virus carried by the Varroa mite, climate change or habitat loss, or a combination of all four factors.  In Australia, we now need to pay more attention to the threat of pesticides since, with the detection of Varoa mite in Victoria in 2018, honeybee populations are more threatened.  So here we look at the pesticides most harmful to bees.  We might immediately think neonics, but while it is true that these are toxic for bees, there are many others which kill both honeybees and native Australian bees.

In SGAs app WiseGardening Choices to Protect You and the Planet where we rate risks of chemical pesticide products, we have included the full range of products in garden use. Five hundred and twenty seven products out of the 869 reviewed so far have either moderate or high risks to bees.  There are 304 with high risk and 223 with moderate risk. Of those 527 products with moderate or high risk to bees, there are still 318 commercially available and 209 have been discontinued.  Of those currently available, 181 are high risk to bees and 131 are of moderate risk.

Neonicotinoids (Neonics)

As the name suggests, these chemicals are similar to nicotine and they react with the same nerve receptors in nerve junctions as nicotine does.  This enables them to cause paralysis and death.  They are more toxic to insects than they are to mammals and birds.

Neonicotinoids in use are:








These chemicals have an advantage as insecticides because they are water-soluble and, if sprayed on the soil, plants can easily take them up.  In theory, this reduces the risk of unwanted effects on beneficial insects caused by broadscale spraying and consequent spray-drift.  However, their solubility means that they can enter and be stored in pollen and flower nectar, pla...

The Shady Past of Keir Starmer, with Oliver Eagleton "IndyWatch Feed National"

From hotshot lawyer to head of the Crown Prosecution Services (CPS), Keir Starmer is perhaps not the first person many would associate with the British Labour Party. But the partys shift in ideological stance under former Prime Minister Tony Blair opened the door for the highly polished Starmer to become the leader.

Joining Lowkey on todays episode of The Watchdog is Oliver Eagleton, author and assistant editor of the journal, The New Left Review. Eagleton knows Starmer well; his 2022 biography, The Starmer Project: a Journey to the Right, forensically dissects both Starmers background and his rapid ascension to the top of the party and details the Labour Partys ideological shift from social democracy to neoliberalism.

Today, Eagleton highlights the 60-year-old politicians questionable relationship with Washington during his time as Director of Public Prosecutions, stating:

Starmer developed a close relationship with the Obama administrationhe went over to Washington and had a series of meetings with Eric Holder, head of the DOJ [Department of Justice] who, at the time, is the guy most famous for developing the legal infrastructure around the Obama administrations drone program.

Starmer has played a key role in the prosecution of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange. As head of the CPS, he used every weapon in his arsenal to keep the Australian publisher in the country and under constant surveillance, even threatening Swedish prosecutors who wished to drop their charges against him the entire pretense underwriting Assanges detention.

Swedish prosecutors had grown tired of the case, [it was]consuming a lot of resources, and they want to drop it. Again, the CPS intervenes and says no, no, no, you must keep the case going, Eagleton told Lowkey; The exact form of words that they used were: dont you dare get cold feet.

Eagleton was unimpressed by Starmers political history or his ideological consistency. He is just sort of a political chameleon or a blank canvas, and he can sort tack right or tack left, depending on who he is listening to at that moment, he said. What we do know is that the leader of the Labour Party pushed for tougher sentences for a whole range of crimes and demanded more police presence in working-class communities.

Before wrapping up, Oliver Eagleton makes a fundamental distinction between Keir Starmer and Tony Blair as leaders of the Labour Party.

Many have compared Starmer, both in outlook and in tone, to Tony Blair. Yet Eagleton says that this is, if anything, unfair to...

Do tiger-dense habitats also help save carbon stock? Its complicated "IndyWatch Feed National"

KATHMANDU In 2012, when wildlife biologist Kanchan Thapa visited Chitwan National Park, a stronghold of the Bengal tiger in Nepal, a colleague asked him a question: How much carbon can we save if we save one tiger? It was an interesting question for Thapa, linking the two pressing issues of biodiversity loss and climate change, and stayed with him for a long time. I wanted to find an answer to the question and to look at the relation between carbon stock and tiger habitat, Thapa told Mongabay. In a newly published study, Thapa and colleagues attempted to find an answer. In short: its what Thapa called a simple calculation thats also a complicated trade-off. And while the researchers found some interesting correlations, they note that more data and studies are needed to get a clearer picture. A grassland in Nepal. Image by Abhaya Raj Joshi for Mongabay. Their initial idea was to fit tigers with GPS collars to observe their movements through different types of habitats, including forests made up predominantly of the sal trees that are emblematic of this part of Nepal. For each of these habitats, they could then calculate the above-ground biomass carbon stock the amount of carbon stored in vegetation such as trees, shrubs and grasses above the surface. However that wasnt possible as we didnt have enough carbon data for the entire tiger habitat in Nepal, Thapa said. So for the study, Thapa and his team decided to focus on 97 plots ofThis article was originally published on Mongabay

10 Best Cricket Guard in Australia (2023) [Top Picks] "IndyWatch Feed Cvic"

Cricket is a sport that is played between two teams of eleven players each. The game is played with a bat and ball and the object of the game is to score runs by hitting the ball with the bat and then running between the wickets. The fielding team tries to stop the batting team from scoring runs by getting them out. There are a number of ways to get a batsman out and one of them is for the bowler to bowl the ball at the batsmans legs so that it hits the stumps and he is given out lbw (leg before wicket). The batsman can also be caught out if he hits the ball in the air and it is caught by one of the fielders. The batsman can also be run out if he fails to reach his crease before the wicket-keeper or one of the fielders knocks down the stumps. A good cricket guard helps protect the batsmans leg from being hit by the ball, as well as providing some padding in case he does get hit. There are a few different types of cricket guards available on the market, so its important to choose one that suits your needs.

Mainstream media's lies on Putin's so called 'arrest warrant' "IndyWatch Feed National"

Lies come in all shapes and forms, where some are blatant and others are 'white' ones.

Also a common lie is one of omission, where this is the case with regards to a so called 'arrest' warrant against USSR President Vladimir Putin.

Rupert Murdoch's 'investigative' journalists stated that there has been an arrest warrant issued for Vladimir Putin from the ICC (International Criminal Court).

BUT, those so called 'investigative' journalists' (deliberately) forgot to mention how invalid this so called 'warrant' really is.

The ICC is not a 'real' court but rather an organisation or tribunal with very limited jurisdiction.

IT is based on consent from its signatories only where those who have not signed up the court cannot issued with any lawful instruments to make executable warrant valid.

Currently, Russia, illustrated in orange was a signatory that withdrew its signature consent.

Ukraine depicted in yellow, indicates that it is a signatory, where there is no formal ratification, keeping in mind that Crimea is an (allegedly) autonomous republic in the south.

Police corruption in high profile rape case "IndyWatch Feed National"

The colonys police forces are corrupt to the core, where its just a matter of catching them out but that makes no difference as the corrupt Masonic/Fabian brotherhood in the legal system protects them.

Brittany Higgins inquiry: AFP refusing to hand over full brief of evidence.

The AFP is refusing to hand over the full brief of evidence in the investigation of Brittany Higgins rape allegation to a powerful inquiry investigating police conduct.

The Australian Federal Police is refusing to hand over the full brief of evidence in the investigation of Brittany Higgins rape allegation to a powerful inquiry investigating police conduct.

A former judge leading the inquiry, Walter Sofronoff KC, detailed the roadblocks the inquiry was running into at a preliminary hearing today where the AFP is represented.

In an extraordinary revelation, the inquiry heard there may also be a police recording of a phone call between barrister Steve Whybrow and AFP Detective Scott Moller.

Mr Whybrow is the barrister for Bruce Lehrmann, the man previously charged in relation to the matter.

A single charge of sex without consent against Mr Lehrmann was dropped by the ACT Department of Prosecutions in December after the first trial collapsed as a result of juror misconduct.

Mr Lehrmann pleaded not guilty to the charge and has strongly denied the allegation since he was charged in August 2021.

While the AFP welcomed the inquiry and has agreed to co-operate, it has raised a number of concerns over providing some documents.

For example, it has told the inquiry that a full brief of evidence includes a large volume of unedited video and pho...

Stay up to date with whats happening within the regions art scene here

For 60 years The Australian Ballet has toured the country bringing exquisite productions to communities that might otherwise never get the opportunity to attend live ballet performances, says the Australian Ballets Executive Director, Lissa Twomey. Since 1980 when the tour became a regular part of the companys yearly programming, The Australian Ballet has delivered over 800 performances in 71 locations, travelling approximately 10,000 kilometres each year.

A collaboration with the Australian Ballet School, the tour hopes to foster an appreciation and understanding of ballet for a wider audience, not just the performance itself but all aspects of its formation and the skilled artists who make it happen.

In addition to the regular dance exhibition, the event also brings the free activity Class on Tour, which offers a unique, behind-the-scenes peek into the daily lives of the dancers as they learn and perfect their technique in preparation for a performance.

Taking The Australian Ballet on tour is a vital link to audiences around the country, says Artistic Director, David Hallberg. Many of our dancers careers were cultivated in dance schools across the nation and we hope our performances will inspire kids in Australia to explore dance with The Australian Ballet.

An increase in the minimum wage is both justified and necessary "IndyWatch Feed National"

Contributed by Joe Montero

Peak Australian union body, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), has called for a 7 percent rise for lower paid workers to keep up with rising living costs due to inflation. Critics, such as the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, are already saying that this will cause a great deal of damage to the economy. They are wrong and the ACTU is in the right.

A long advocated fallacy is that wage rises always cause inflation. The truth is that inflation is a consequence of problems in the system of production and circulation that manifest in a disconnection between what the nation produces and the money supply. It is also influenced by what goes on in the global economy, and especially major trading partners.

Rises in the minimum wage over the last two years have been less than the rate of inflation and therefore still meant a cut in real wages. The proposed rise will help to close the gap but not close it.

Blaming everything on wages turns the focus away from the real problem and puts the burden of the cost on the backs of those who can least afford it. Maintaining wage stagnation and the Reserve Banks hiking of the interest rate aim at doing just this. Both are means to channel national income upwards, to service the claim that it will lead to more investment in the economy.

This is a pillar of neoliberalism, and  it must be thrown overboard. Although neoliberalism  has delivered immense wealth to a very few, in practice, it has failed to  generate productive investment and fix the economy. This is obvious. If neoliberalism had worked, the problems we have today would not be here.

Lifting the minimum hourly rate to $22.88 an hour is hardly enough to live a life of luxury, but it would provide some help for the growing proportion of Australia facing real poverty. In addition to the need to ensure justice, this is important for the health of the economy.

The ACTU has put its case through submission to the Fair Work Commission. Their argument is that workers on the minimum wage have suffered the greatest real pay cuts on record over the last two years.

Signals coming from the Albanese government are that it may have shifted from a policy supporting wages kee...

In 1992, Tania Doko and James Roche formed Bachelor Girl and the duo became one of the most loved Australian acts of the 1990s and early 2000s, enjoying Australian and international success in Asia, Scandinavia and the US (including signing with the legendary Clive Davis at Arista Records).

Electrifying the Australian music scene, they topped the charts with their debut double platinum-selling single Buses and Trains from their ARIA Award-winning debut album Waiting for the Day which was also certified double platinum. The album also spawned hits Treat Me Good, Lucky Me and Permission to Shine.

Buses and Trains, which has now surpassed over 25 million streams, was a huge hit internationally and solidified Bachelor Girl as an important part of Australian music history.

After a brief hiatus to pursue their individual musical paths as writers and producers for outside artists in Sweden and the UK, Tania and James reunited to release their socially conscious single Speak, in 2018.

With their hit-studded and dynamic live set, Bachelor Girl have secured impressive support slots including international heavyweights Eurythmics and The Goo Goo Dolls. More recently, the band has special guested on widely popular festival gigs such as Day on the Green (with John Farnham, Daryl Braithwaite), the Red Hot Summer tour, and can also add Icehouse to the list of iconic acts they have toured with.

2023 spearheads a significant year for the duo the 25th anniversary of their iconic debut single and album, also culminating with a new album release and celebratory tour dates, to be announced soon.

Ocean Is at Stake at International Seabed Authority Negotiations Over Deep-Sea Mining "IndyWatch Feed National"

This week in Kingston, Jamaica, the United Nations International Seabed Authority (ISA) is conducting a second week of negotiations that could shape the future of the deep ocean

In 2021, the Pacific nation of Nauru triggered something called the two-year rule, which gives the ISA until July 9 to establish regulations to govern the controversial practice of deep-sea mining. This 28th session, which launched March 16 and concludes Friday, is the bodys penultimate meeting before that deadline. 

The ocean is at stake, University of California, Santa Barbara deep-sea biologist Dr. Diva Amon, who is representing the Deep Ocean Stewardship Initiative in Kingston, told EcoWatch. 

But beyond the looming threat of commercial mining, something else was different about these negotiations. Influential civil society groups including Greenpeace, the Deep Sea Conservation Coalition, the Pew Charitable Trusts and WWF have given up their seats to a large coalition of Indigenous Pacific activists who have come to share their vision of the high seas, a vision that contrasts the nationalist perspective that they are nobodys land.

What we want to express is that we dont view this as nobodys land because it is part of our country, Hawaiian Indigenous speaker and activist Solomon Kahoohalahala told EcoWatch. This is where we have lived and thrived and have inhabited the largest area of ocean and islands on planet Earth. 

Part of Our Country

Kahoohalahala hails from the Hawaiian island of Lnai, where he has worked to establish marine conservation areas and to protect native dry land forest. He has also joined efforts to protect Hawaiian marine biodiversity as a whole as part of the Maui Nui Makkai network and the

Native Hawaiian Cultural Working Group that championed the expansion of Papahnaumokukea Marine National Monument into the worlds largest Marine Protected Area under then-President Barack Obama. In addition to his advocacy against deep-sea mining, he is also now campaigning for the expansion of the Pacific and Remote Islands National Mon...


RFK, Jr. Calls on DOT Secretary Buttigieg to Investigate Spike in Airline Near-Misses Caused by Pilot Health Emergencies "IndyWatch Feed National"

Press Release

For Immediate Release

Washington, D.C Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. today called on U.S. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg to investigate the spike in near-misses and narrowly averted airline accidents resulting from pilots incapacitated by health emergencies since 2021, coinciding with the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination campaign in the U.S.

In a letter to Buttigieg, Kennedy wrote:

Secretary Buttigieg, the safety of pilots, cabin crew, airline passengers, and the general public is not and never has been a partisan issue. Everything contained within this letter pertains to fundamental issues of public health and safety, which you, the DOT, the FAA, and the Biden Administration profess to uphold and to protect.

The changes to FAA guidelines and the lack of publicly available evidence on which these changes rest, along with the increasing number of incidents involving the incapacitation or vaccine-related injury of pilots, are highly concerning.

A Childrens Health Defense (CHD) analysis of raw data obtained from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) determined there was a marked increase, on a per-flight basis, in medical emergency-related flight diversions in both 2021 and 2022, compared to 2019 and prior years, Kennedy said.

Similarly, there was a marked increase in medical emergency diversions on a per-passenger basis in 2021 compared to 2019 and prior years, while the 2022 figure is higher than those for 2018 and 2019, indicating an increase in medical emergencies occurring in the air, when adjusted for the reduced number of flights and passengers in the 2021 and 2022 calendar years compared to the pre-2020 period.

Kennedy said the FAA violated its own guidelines by recommending COVID-19 vaccines authorized for emergency use for pilots, contrary to the agencys policy of prohibiting pilots from taking any medical product that has been on the market for less than 12 months.

Kennedys 13-page letter citing 69 sources detailed evidence the FAA loosened medical restrictions for conditions such as myocarditis and Guillain-Barr Syndrome, both documented adverse events related to COVID-19 vaccines.

The letter outlines 12 questions Kennedy said Buttigieg and the FAA need to answer for the American public and demands a thorough investigation into whether COVID-19 vaccines may be endangering pilots, flight crews and the public.

Meeting between the Interstellar Commonwealth representatives and the Angry Astronaut described as productive (Fiction) "IndyWatch Feed National"

By Reporter X

Addressing the interstellar media, YouTube personality, the Angry Astronaut, and the Interstellar Commonwealth, both described their meeting as productive.

Im glad we had this talk, said AA. Im now open to the possibility that aliens dont want to destroy humanity.

Representative Zoklo replied, If we wanted to destroy humanity, why would help build your Internet?

I dont know. Maybe to distract us from your planet destroying missiles?

As you can see, we still have a way to go.

Bolingbrook Mayor Mary Alexander-Basta arranged the meeting after watching AAs video accusing the Commonwealth of building Alien Death Stars. 

I know some people are desperate for clicks and subscribers, but this video went too far. His reckless speculation threatened decades of negotiations to bring humanity into the Commonwealth. The Illuminati wanted to make Mr. Angry disappear. I persuaded them to let Mr. Angry meet our visitors and learn the truth.

Representative Liko insisted that the facility orbiting HD139139 manufactures luxury planets, not planet killers. There are solar systems that dont have planets in the habitable zone. Instead of building a base on a hostile world, some civilizations buy planets and orbit them in the habitable zone. Sure, its more expensive than terraforming or shifting a planets orbit, but its a status symbol. Like how your ultra-rich humans build oversized and overpowered boats instead of buying for rowboats.

AA replied, Yeah, maybe they just want to help us make love instead of war. That would be great. But what if its a trap? What if theyre distracting us with their toys while a moon-sized object hurls towards us at 99% the speed of light? We wouldnt see it until it was too late! Then they could take over our solar system! I have more to say about this, but first! I see that my YouTube Interstellar channel only has 99 billion subscribers. If reach 100 billion subscribers, I wont get mind-wiped. So if you want me to have more conversations with these allegedly friendly aliens, hit the like button and SUBSCRIBE!

Your solar system isnt that special, said Liko. And the Martian Colonies have claimed Earth as their property. They can protect your planet from any sub-light speed threat. Not that we want to destroy Earth. We want to be your friends.

Maybe. Maybe not. But until I get a definitive answer, I urge every human to STAY ANGRY ABOUT SPACE!

Fortunately, said Alexander-Basta, we have some...

Bulgaria refuses to send weapons to Ukraine, joins Hungary and Austrias neutrality stance "IndyWatch Feed National"

REMIX NEWS | March 27, 2023

After Austria and Hungary, Bulgaria has also joined the minority group of European Union countries that refuse to send weapons to Ukraine, news and opinion portal Mandiner reports.

Bulgaria has declared that it will not take part in the EUs joint ammunition purchase program, nor will it supply fighter jets or tanks to Ukraine, Euronews reports. Bulgarian President Rumen Radev is under enormous pressure from opposition parties, but he has said he stands by his position.

Bulgaria does not support and is not involved in the joint procurement of ammunition for Ukraine. However, we will support efforts to restore peace. As long as the interim government is in power, Bulgaria will not make its fighter aircraft, anti-aircraft missile systems, tanks and other equipment available to Ukraine, said Radev.

At the end of January, Hungarian Defense Minister Kristf Szalay-Bobrovniczky and his Austrian counterpart, Klaudia Tanner, said in Budapest that neither country will offer any kind of military assistance to Ukraine in order to prevent further escalation.

Although many of its Western allies accuse Hungary of siding with Russia in the war based on its firm stance of not sending weapons to Ukraine, last December Prime Minister Viktor Orbn said that his government is simply on the side of the Hungarians.

We are pro-Hungarian, Orbn told daily Magyar Nemzet in an interview. We are on the side of the Hungarians in the Russian-Ukrainian war.

Orbn argued that while it is important to his government that Russia poses no security threat, continued economic relations are essential for not only Hungary but also the entire European economy.

The answer to the question of whether we are on the right or wrong side of history is that we are on the Hungarian side of history. We support and help Ukraine, it is in our interest to preserve a sovereign Ukraine, and it is in our interest that Russia does not pose a security threat to Europe, but it is not in our interest to give up all economic relations with Russia. We are looking at these issues through Hungarian glasses, not through anyone elses,...


Evolutionary relationships are just whatever Ken Ham decides "IndyWatch Feed National"

Time to revise all of taxonomy, according to Ken Ham. He was annoyed by a sign at the local zoo.

Humans are animals? Something must be done!

From a biblical worldview perspective, humans are different to animals. Only human beings are made in the image of God. Let us make man in our image, after our likeness (Genesis 1:26).

God made animals differently, And God said, Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kindslivestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds (Genesis 1:24). When God created Adam, He brought animals to him to name to show there was no one like him, as none of the animals were made in Gods image, But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him (Genesis 2:20).

Because of the emphasis today that man is just an animal & thus affecting peoples view of humanity & how they view various moral issues, I suggest Christians use the criterion made in the image of God, for an additional Kingdom. This would place man in his own Kingdom, The Human Kingdom. We need our children to understand that humans are special & made in Gods image, whereas animals are not made in Gods image.

Hes gonna fix that. First step: redesign that zoo sign.

Humans are as different from all other organisms as paramecia are from sequoias, or elephants from mushrooms. The evidence for that is a) the Bible, and b) Ken Ham.

Im afraid Im going to have to demand a full phylogenetic analysis of that tree. I dont think Answers in Genesis can do it. I dont think they have the slightest conception of the rigor required of systematics.

Very disappointing outcome: Nearly 500 solar lights stolen from art exhibition on Queenscliff Pier "IndyWatch Feed Vic"

In some truly devastating news for the local arts scene, nearly 500 solar lights have been stolen from the Queenscliff Pier which were part of the public Queenscliff Art Prize exhibition.

In an aim to deliver a unique and immersive art experience, last year solar-powered LED lights were installed to illuminate the artworks on the pier, elevating the appeal of the exhibition and giving locals and tourists alike a new excuse to explore Queenscliff at night.

Stay up to date with whats happening within the regions art scene here

Over 230 artworks were installed on the Queenscliff pier in November 2022, and on these, we had installed two solar lights, with three on some of the bigger artworks at the street end, Queenscliff Art Prize shared to social media this week.

Shortly after the artworks had been installed, many of the solar lights were stolen, now with just over a month till the end of this unique outdoor art exhibition, I am saddened to announce that all but a handful of the 500 lights have been stolen.

A very disappointing outcome, for those that did not see the exhibition lit up at night, it was a truly beautiful sight.

What will Become Money Post-2032? "IndyWatch Feed National"

QUESTION: Hello Martin,
Been reading your writings with keen interest for over 15 years now since while you were incarcerated.
My question is: The way you paint a picture of the past economies going back hundreds and thousands of years through the discovery of coinage hoards is brilliant. How will a future Martin Armstrong from say 500 to 1,000 years from now be able to utilize that methodology of discovering the history of this era when were largely a computer digital transaction society? (Especially if government-planned digital currency takes over?)
Thanks. Jerry S.

Most Baby Formula Claims Not Backed by Science "IndyWatch Feed National"

In the face of overwhelming scientific evidence that breastfeeding is the best nutrition for newborns and infants, infant formula companies make claims that formula strengthens immune health and brain development and supports digestive health.1 Similac also claims to have included prebiotics that are structurally identical to those found in breast milk. Yet, a 2023 study found the health and nutrition claims for formulas are not supported by robust clinical trial evidence.2

The World Health Organization,3 CDC4 and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)5 support exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. The AAPs 2022 policy statement includes:6

Breastfeeding and human milk are the normative standards for infant feeding and nutrition. The short- and long-term medical and neurodevelopmental advantages of breastfeeding make breastfeeding, or the provision of human milk, a public health imperative.

Evidence-based benefits of breastfeeding for mother and baby are experienced immediately and over a lifetime. For example, according to the CDC,7 mothers have a lower risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, ovarian or breast cancer, and high blood pressure. Breastfed infants have a lower risk of obesity, asthma, ear infections, sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) in preterm infants.

In addition to these physical benefits, science has also identified emotional benefits to mother and child.8 Mothers experience reduced stress in the early months of caring for their newborn and improved sensitivity to their infants needs. Breastfeeding improves cognitive performance in children and socio-affective response to their environment.

Infant Formula Claims Are Not Evidence Based

In a study published in February 2023, researchers sought to evaluate the nutrition claims made by infant formula companies in multiple countries. This international cross-sectional survey offers valuable evidence for parents, physicians and public health experts. Formula sold in 15 countries were surveyed, including those sold in the U.S., U.K., Norway, Nigeria, Russia, Germany, Canada, Italy, Japan and Australia.9

Australia forecasts record influx of 650,000 migrants to arrive in just two years, hails surge as a tax windfall despite housing crisis "IndyWatch Feed National"

Australia is set to see its biggest-ever surge of immigrants with government figures revealing 650,000 migrants are predicted to arrive this financial year and next. The sudden population boom is likely to put even greater pressure on the national housing crisis which has seen record rent rises as too many tenants compete for too few homes. But it will also ease workforce shortages which have caused chronic job vacancies where employers have struggled to find staff to fill positions, especially in healthcare, hospitality and tourism.


Finding Mental Health - #SolutionsWatch "IndyWatch Feed National"

What is mental health and how can we achieve it? Is it only to be found in a trip to the psychiatrist's office and a prescription for a Big Pharma medication, or do alternative mental care structures exist for those who need it? And what does all of this have to do with Baruch Spinoza, anyway? Joining us to answer these questions on this week's in-depth edition of #SolutionsWatch is Dr. Bruce Levine, author of A Profession Without Reason.


Meatball Made With Wooly Mammoth DNA Created by Food Company "IndyWatch Feed National"

The concept of a mammoth meatball might conjure up an image of a gigantic meatball at a county fair, but Australian cultured meat company Vow Food which cultivates meat from animal cells without the slaughter of animals has produced a meatball that incorporates DNA from the extinct woolly mammoth.

The first-ever recreation of the flesh of the extinct creature is meant to show the potential of lab-grown meat, and to call attention to the large-scale raising and slaughter of livestock that is responsible for the destruction of forests and the wildlife and ecosystems that depend on them, reported The Guardian.

We need to start rethinking how we get our food. My biggest hope for this project is that a lot more people across the world begin to hear about cultured meat, said Vows Chief Scientific Officer James Ryall, as CNN reported.

The 0.88-pound meatball isnt actually intended to be eaten and only contains a small amount of woolly mammoth DNA. The scientists made a synthesized gene created from the DNA sequence of the woolly mammoth found in a genome database available to the public.

Gaps in the sequence were filled in with African elephant genome data, and the synthesized gene was grown in the muscle cell of a sheep.

From a genomic point of view, its only one gene amongst all the other sheep genes that is mammoth. Its one gene out of 25,000, said Ernst Wolvetang, professor and senior group leader at the Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology at the University of Queensland, who was part of the project, as reported by CNN.

Vow has been looking at combining cells from species that arent commonly consumed, like crocodile, alpaca, peacock and kangaroo, to create different meat varieties, The Guard........


Market Talk March 28, 2023 "IndyWatch Feed National"



The US and Japan have agreed to not impose export duties on critical minerals needed for electric vehicle batteries. The agreement is aimed at reinforcing supply chains and reducing dependence on China, which currently dominates the sector. The US law requires 40% of critical minerals in eligible EV batteries to be extracted from countries with free-trade agreements, rising to 80% in 2027, which would have excluded the EU and Japan. Rare earth elements and minerals like lithium are crucial for clean energy, but the US is expected to face supply gaps to meet demand for EV

FBI File: The FBI Story A Report to the People (Book), by Don Whitehead "IndyWatch Feed National"

Here are the FBI files on the book by Don Whitehead entitled, The FBI Story A Report to the People. Here is a synopsis of the book:

What is the FBI? How did it come into being? What has it accomplished? What are its powers? Above all, what does the mere fact of its existence mean to Every Citizen of the United States? This book, written with the cooperation of J. Edgar Hoover and FBI Personnel will answer these questions once and for all. THE FBI STORY, written by one of Americas top reporters, Don Whitehead, and with a Foreword by J. Edgar Hoover, takes you behind the scenes to reveal the record of Americas crusade against crime and subversion. THE FBI STORY names names, places and events. Youll read about cases which have made todays headlines as well as about the celebrated cases and notorious events which made yesterdays. Youll read about the Black Tom explosion and other acts of sabotage which were the prelude to Americas entrance into World War I. You will find the case histories of the Wall Street Explosion and Palmers Raids; the Harding Era and Gaston Means. The gangsters rise to power in the roaring twenties and the lady in red, Pretty Ana Cumpanas, who betrayed John Dillinger, and Al Capone. Here too are the Lindbergh Kidnapping, the Kansas City Massacre and many other cases which placed the FBI in the forefront of the publics imagination. THE FBI STORY is the story too of Pearl Harbor, the capture of the Japanese espionage messages, the German saboteurs invasion of the United States and their capture, and other behind the scenes dramas of World War II. The book tells of the FBIs secret operations in South and Central America and the experiences of its Special Intelligence Service (SIS). How the FBI tricked the Germans through double agent radio stations is a stranger than fiction story. Youll read of the FBIs role in combating postwar crime as Don Whitehead reports on the kidnap murder of little Bobby Greenlease and the murder of a mother by her son high over a Colorado beet field when a plane fell carrying passengers and crew to their deaths. The fight against Communism in the United States, Smith Act prosecutions and the gathering of evidence which made these prosecutions possible are all portrayed. Also related are the cases of Hiss and Klaus Fuchs and the theft of the atomic secrets and the Rosenberg and Greenglass cases, which are revealed in detail. The history of the FBI in reality represents the peoples efforts to achieve government by law. THE FBI STORY, then, is the story of America itself and the struggles to attain this ideal.

Eradicate the guns, not the people "IndyWatch Feed National"

The Washington Post graces us with articles on what an AR-15 bullet does to a human body. Its unsettling stuff, especially when they describe what happens to actual, named human victims. The only people who would want to own these murderous devices are psychopaths, so why havent we criminalized them already?

If you have to ask why the US has these devastating shootings, the answer is simple: its the guns.

The debate is over. Stop arguing for lethal weapons and do something about it.

This comic is appropriate.
