Death toll in Nepal quake rises to more than 3,200 | 26 April 2015 | The death toll from Nepal’s earthquake rose to 3,218 on Monday, two days after the massive quake ripped across this Himalayan nation, leaving tens of thousands shell-shocked and sleeping in streets. Aid groups received the first word from remote mountain villages — reports that suggested many communities perched on mountainsides were devastated or struggling to cope. Landslides hindered rescue teams that tried to use mountain trails to reach those in need, said Prakash Subedi, chief district official in the Gorkha region, where the quake was centered.

Top Jewish leader claims entire Western world culpable for “Holocaust”
Ronald Lauder, the President of the World Jewish Congress and a key figure involved in the privatization scheme to transfer the WTC complex to Jewish billionaire Larry Silverstein prior to 9/11, recently declared that the world is “descending into the same, dangerous hell where we found ourselves before,” referring of course to the alleged “persecution of the Jews” and the fake Jewish “Holocaust” narrative during WWII.
After essentially stating that the Jews are on the brink of another “Holocaust,” Lauder went on to claim that every single European country, along with the United States, were complicit in the alleged “genocide of the Jews” at the hands of Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany. The Algemeiner reports:
One of the world’s most prominent Jewish leaders warned on Sunday that just 70 years after the Holocaust, the world is “descending into the same, dangerous hell where we found ourselves before.”
Speaking at the 70th anniversary ceremony for the liberation of Bergen-Belsen at the Bergen-Belsen Memorial, Anne-Frank-Platz, Lohheide, Germany, World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder praised Jewish resilience following the slaughter of six million Jews at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators.
“From the ashes of this terrible place, the Jewish people rose up and moved on,” he said. “But tragically,” he warned, “seventy years later, the world is not moving on; it is moving backward.”
“Today, seventy years after this camp was liberated, we hear the same antisemitic lies. Today, a Jewish boy wearing a yarmulke cannot walk down the street in Paris or London or Copenhagen without fearing for his life,” Lauder said further. “Right wing neo-Nazi groups are winning seats in Parliament in Hungary and Greece. Iranian leaders repeatedly promise to wipe Israel from the pages of time.” […]
The WJC chief said that there were few countries that didn’t bear some culpability for the crime of the Holocaust and even singled out the United States for shutting its doors “to Jews desperately trying to leave.”
“We know the perpetrators – but they were not just Germans and Austrians. There was complicity in practically every country in Europe,” he said.
Lauder also praised Jewish contributions to society and chided antisemites for their destructive impact.
“The fact is, wherever Jews are allowed to live freely, those countries prosper,” he said. “Jews win Nobel prizes. Jews cure diseases. Jews build. They don’t tear down! Anti-Semites tear down. Anti-Semites destroy. They create nothing. They save no one.” […]
There are several points worth making regarding Lauder’s statements.
First, once again, we have a major Jewish leader representing the organized international Jewish community openly claiming that the entire Western world is complicit in the fake Jewish “Holocaust” during WWII. He is basically indicting and condemning all of Western civilization for allegedly not doing enough for the Jews prior to and during WWII, when in reality the war waged against Germany and her allies by the British, Americans, and Soviets was fought at the behest of and for organized Jewry’s benefit. It was a Jewish instigated, fratricidal war against the one nation – National Socialist Germany – that was openly defying and exposing Jewish internationalism, communism, and plutocracy pushing for a “New World Order” on every front imaginable.
Lauder echoed the sentiments of Ian Kagedan, former National Director of Government Relations of B’nai Brith Canada, who wrote in a 1991 Toronto Star op-ed piece titled “Memory of the Holocaust Central to New World Order”:
The Holocaust stands as Western Civilization’s greatest failure. It was a natural outcome of centuries of racism and of anti-Semitism. To deny the Holocaust is to deny racism’s capacity to undercut our civilization’s basic values and to destroy democracy. Achieving our quest of a “new world order” depends on our learning the Holocaust’s lessons.
Secondly, as I’ve noted before and as Kagedan’s quote above just demonstrated, the fake “Holocaust” narrative of WWII is the linchpin of the entire “New World Order” agenda, which in reality is simply a Jewish plot to enslave the entire world politically, economically, and culturally, destroying all genuine national and racial distinctions in the process.
The “lessons of the Holocaust,” which include “tolerance,” “diversity,” “anti-racism,” and multiculturalism, are specifically designed to erode, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy White racial identity, justify multiculturalism and massive non-White immigration into the West, and end all criticism of Jews and the Jewish state (i.e., “anti-Semitism”), equating such criticism with “hate speech.”
Finally, I think what terrifies the organized Jewish community most of all about Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany was not the alleged “death camps” or purported plans to “genocide the Jews,” standard claims made by the “Holocaust” industry which are entirely false.
What the the organized Jewish community fears most of all about Hitler was the fact that he accurately, articulately, and boldly exposed the Jews and their destructive, parasitic, and subversive nature. Hitler’s Germany made “anti-Semitism” (i.e., basic truths about Jews and their agenda) mainstream in Germany – everyone was expected to understand the Jewish problem, and most did.
More than anything else, organized Jewry fear the masses waking up to and clearly recognizing the truth about the Jews, their crimes, their insidious power and influence in the West, and their subversive, destructive overall agenda.

Radioactive decay is the disintegration of an unstable atom with an accompanying emission of radiation. As a radioisotope atom decays to a more stable atom, it emits radiation only once. To change from an unstable atom to a completely stable atom may require several disintegration steps and radiation will be given off at each step. However, once the atom reaches a stable configuration, no more radiation is given off. For this reason, radioactive sources become weaker with time. As more and more unstable atoms become stable atoms, less radiation is produced and eventually the material will become non-radioactive.
The decay of radioactive elements occurs at a fixed rate. The half-life of a radioisotope is the time required for one half of the amount of unstable material to degrade into a more stable material. For example, a source will have an intensity of 100% when new. At one half-life, its intensity will be cut to 50% of the original intensity. At two half-lives, it will have an intensity of 25% of a new source. After ten half-lives, less than one-thousandth of the original activity will remain. Although the half-life pattern is the same for every radioisotope, the length of a half-life is different. For example, Co-60 has a half-life of about 5 years while Ir-192 has a half-life of about 74 days. http://www.ndt-ed.org/EducationResour…

This observer of the system and the process can’t help but wonder about the differences in the justice/legal system that, on one hand, has the Boston Marathon bombing trial just now entering the penalty phase, conviction having been obtained, and the Aurora theater trial just now only beginning, though that event happened nine months earlier. Why the rush and the delay?
“Gag orders and heavy secrecy surrounding the case have obscured many details about Mr. Holmes’s mental health, about the results of sanity examinations and about the evidence and witnesses to be presented by prosecutors and defense lawyers.”

Cecily Strong Takes on Police Brutality at White House Correspondents’ Dinner | 26 April 2015 | Saturday Night Live cast member and Chicago native Cecily Strong told some pretty brutal jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night. One observation, however, about the extrajudicial killing of black men in the United States seemingly pushed the boundaries and buttons of many of those in attendance. Strong played off a string of Secret Service lapses. “Let’s give it up for the Secret Service. I don’t want to be too hard on those guys. You know, because they’re the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot.” There was a smattering of awkward chuckles, loud groans and a few boos, to which Strong responded, “Are you saying ‘boo’ or are you saying ‘true?'”

As the crisis in Ukraine drags on, U.S.-Russia relations continue to deteriorate. The United States has just taken a step that risks bringing that relationship to a new low.
As part of its effort to support Ukraine, the U.S. military recently sent 290 troops from the 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Vicenza, Italy, to train the Ukrainian National Guard.
SOURCE: ALL GOV.
The reach of the U.S. military is virtually endless, with nearly every nation on earth having some kind of American armed forces presence. The commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has said that in 80 of those countries there are now Special Forces troops.
The U.S. Special Forces are a kind of army within an army. There are about 69,000 sailors, soldiers, airmen and Marines in the Special Operations Forces (SOF), which operate as part of USSOCOM under Army General Joseph Votel.
Votel testified (pdf) to the House Armed Services Committee Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities last month, outlining the mission and capabilities of USSOCOM. Votel described the reach of SOF troops, pointing out that in 80 countries around the world, about 3,500 are stationed in “forward” positions and 7,000 in support of Geographic Combatant Command operations. Missions, he said, include working with governments to improve local security to “high-risk counterterrorism operations.”
U.S. Special Forces are stretched thin, Votel said, with most having done between four and 10 deployments, and often less than a year off between overseas tours. “SOF and their families have been under unprecedented levels of stress; it is imperative to address the effects of more than 13 years of combat operations,” Votel testified.
One reason U.S. Special Forces are stationed in so many places might be that other countries don’t have equivalent troops they can deploy. In an op-ed written for CNN, Meaghan Keeler-Pettigrew and Stuart Bradin of the Global Special Operations Forces Foundation argued that more of our foreign military spending ($5.65 billion in 2015), the bulk of which goes now to Israel and Egypt, should instead be used to bolster other countries’ own special forces.
Keeler-Pettigrew and Bradin pointed out recent terrorist attacks in Kenya and the threat posed in Nigeria by Boko Haram. Those countries get no more than $1.2 million and $600,000 respectively in U.S. military aid. Increased funding directed to counter-terrorist forces in those countries and others could lessen the need to U.S. forces to be sprinkled so liberally around the world.

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) may be just as effective as anti-depressants in helping prevent people with chronic depression from relapsing, scientists said on Tuesday.
Depression is one of the most common forms of mental illness, affecting more than 350 million people worldwide. It is ranked by the World Health Organization as the leading cause of disability globally.
Treatment usually involves either medication, some form of psychotherapy or a combination of both. Yet many patients fail to get better and suffer recurring bouts of illness.
MBCT was developed to help such people by teaching them skills to recognize and respond constructively to thoughts and feelings associated with relapse, aiming to prevent a downward spiral into depression.
In the first large study to compare MBCT and anti-depressants, researchers found little difference in outcomes.
