Everything You Need to Know About 5G


Today’s mobile users want faster data speeds and more reliable service. The next generation of wireless networks—5G—promises to deliver that, and much more. With 5G, users should be able to download a high-definition film in under a second (a task that could take 10 minutes on 4G LTE). And wireless engineers say these networks will boost the development of other new technologies, too, such as autonomous vehiclesvirtual reality, and the Internet of Things.

Thousands of people think that the government is using implanted chips and electronic beams to control their minds. They are desperate to prove they aren’t delusional.

EVERY MORNING, LIZA wakes up and remembers that she’s been tortured. When she looks down at her hands, she can see slightly raised bumps where she believes she’s been implanted with microchips. She is certain that the chips track her every move, that her family has been programmed not to listen to her. She knows that her mind had been pushed to the limits of human endurance (“the most pain you could put on a person before they die”). The targeting, the rewiring of her brain, is so extreme that she can no longer even cry.


Verizon now officially owns Yahoo, Marissa Mayer resigns


As of today, Verizon is officially the owner of Yahoo. Yahoo’s assets are now being mashed up with those of AOL, which Verizon bought in 2015, into a horribly named new division called Oath. Oath will contain sites like HuffPostYahoo SportsTechCrunch, and Engadget, as well as apps and services like Alto and Brightroll. Tumblr will also fall under the Oath umbrella.

With the deal complete, it’s also being announced that Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is departing the combined company. Mayer was an incredible hire by Yahoo when it brought her on as CEO five years ago. She came to the company after spending more than a decade at Google spearheading key products like search and Maps.

The deal is all about advertising

Yahoo was obviously a challenge to turn around. And while Mayer didn’t exactly save the company, its share price more than tripled during her tenure. (Although, much of that value may have come from an early Yahoo investment in Alibaba; Verizon isn’t acquiring that investment as part of this deal.)

The Yahoo acquisition has taken a long time to close. Verizon initially made an offer last July, for $4.83 billion in cash. But the deal hit a number of speed bumps after it was revealed that Yahoo had been subject to multiple major data breaches. Verizon decided to stick with Yahoo anyway, ultimately just shaving $350 million off the purchase price.

Like its AOL deal, the Yahoo deal is about turning Verizon into an advertising juggernaut. Not only is it acquiring ad technology from Yahoo, but it’s acquiring another suite of highly visited sites. Combine that with the information Verizon is already able to mine from AOL visitors and its own internet service customers, and the company is able to get an increasingly big picture of what people spend their time doing online. That’ll help it better target ads, especially as companies like Google and Apple begin to cut down on what advertisers are able to get away with online.

Why male fertility is in crisis

Why male fertility is in crisis

Why male fertility is in crisis

Health experts are warning of a crisis in male fertility that they fear is making it harder for couples to conceive – a problem they say is compounded by a lack of scientific understanding.

The average sperm count has dived by 52 per cent in the past four decades – while men are leaving it later and later before trying to have a child.

Yet scientists don’t know why the sperm count is falling or even whether the decline is reducing fertility – although logic suggests that it is, leading academics said today.

Men become less fertile

And while there is now evidence to show that men, like women, become less fertile with age, they know very little about when and how this happens.

Male fertility alert after sperm count dives by more than half

Male infertility: ‘The pain does not fade with time, it intensifies’

In short, our understanding of the key male fertility questions has moved on very little from the 1990s, according to Professor Richard Sharpe, of the University of Edinburgh.

“We still don’t know what causes most cases of male infertility, which means we don’t have the tools to correct them,” he said.

“And the flip side of that coin is that we can’t induce infertility for contraceptive purposes – we haven’t developed a new effective male contraceptive since the condom,” Professor Sharp added.

Finally, among the big unanswered questions, scientists still know very little about sperm production – the fundamental driver of male fertility.

“We know it’s absolutely dependent on high levels of testosterone. But we should know how that works and we still don’t – it’s a big black box,” said Prof Sharp.

Millions of people affected

It’s estimated that around 1 in 6 couples, or about 3.5 million people in the UK, are affected by infertility.

In more than half of cases the problem lies with the male partner, for example if he has a low sperm count or his sperm are poor swimmers.

“Despite how common male fertility problems are, incredibly there’s nothing that we can prescribe, nor add to his sperm to cure it,” said Dr Sarah Martins Da Silva, of the University of Dundee.

“So couples rely on fertility treatment such as IVF which is expensive and invasive and doesn’t guarantee success,” she said.

Fertility ‘crisis’

Professor Allan Pacey, of the University of Sheffield, added: “I do think male fertility is in a bit of a crisis….the quality of evidence we’ve got in this area falls way behind that of other branches of medicine and that’s something that we need to change.”

Normal sperm densities range between 15 to 200 million per millilitre, with anything less than that regarded as low, making it potentially much more difficult to conceive naturally.

Incredible vaccine lies from the Ministry of Truth

Incredible vaccine lies from the Ministry of Truth

Incredible vaccine lies from the Ministry of Truth

by Jon Rappoport

February 18, 2018

For many years as a reporter covering medical stories, I have taken to task public health agencies, such as WHO and the CDC. I’m used to their lies.

In that regard, I came across a mind-boggling CDC quote dug up by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny (twitter), who has done terrific work researching vaccine dangers.

The quote comes from the 6th edition of Epidemiology and Prevention of Vaccine-Preventable Diseases, the so-called Pink Book, published by the CDC. It’s an attempt to squelch debate about the DTaP vaccine, which is given to prevent diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis. Over the years, much has been written about the severe adverse effects of this combination vaccine—e.g., brain damage, seizures, very high fever, death.

The CDC quote (see also here) asserts that, generally, there is no definable disease “syndrome” caused by vaccines. It then makes several more astonishing claims.

“There is no distinct syndrome from vaccine administration, and therefore, many temporally associated adverse events probably represent background illness rather than illness caused by the vaccine…The DTaP may stimulate or precipitate inevitable symptoms of underlying CNS [Central Nervous System] disorder, such as seizures, infantile spasms, epilepsy or SIDS [Sudden Infant Death Syndrome]. By chance alone, some of these cases will seem to be temporally related to DPaT.”

Read the quote several times to absorb the full force of its message. It reminds me of the attempts to shunt aside deaths caused by AZT, the AIDS drug, which viciously attacks the immune system. In that case, the doctor or researcher will say, “The patient didn’t die from the effects of AZT. The destructive action of AIDS, by coincidence, simply speeded up after the drug was given.”

The CDC is claiming the DTaP vaccine stimulates a PRE-EXISTING CONDITION in a baby: The baby already had a life-threatening central nervous system illness. The illness was temporarily on hold. The vaccine brought it to light, and then the baby died.

Suddenly—with no evidence offered—vaccines have this magical ability to cause underlying illness to jump into action. The vaccine isn’t at fault. The baby was already on the road to brain damage or death.

I’ve seen some pretty wild excuses offered for vaccine-induced destruction, but this one takes the cake. Whoever cooked it up should receive some sort of medical prize for Bald-Faced Lying. Then he can be arrested for contributing to negligent homicide.

Generally speaking, the untested medical assumption is this: “We know vaccines cause no harm. Therefore, if a vaccine recipient becomes ill or dies, the cause must reside in the patient.” In the field of logic, this is called assuming what you are trying to prove.

I have written many times about the 100,000 people who die every year, in the US, as a result of correctly administered FDA-approved medicines. Perhaps the CDC or the National Institutes of Health could issue a statement blaming all these deaths on underlying, pre-existing illness that was stimulated by these drugs.

Surgical errors could be accounted for in this way, too. “Yes, we did remove the patient’s testicles while we were doing the appendectomy. But you see, we knew he had testicular cancer, so we needed to take care of that while we were in the area. What’s that? How did we know he had testicular cancer? Well, we would never remove his testicles by mistake. Therefore, we must have known we had a legitimate reason to take them off. Can’t you see that?”
