World Trade Center 7 Report Puts 9/11 Conspiracy Theory to Rest

Conspiracy theorists have long claimed that explosives downed World Trade Center 7, north of the Twin Towers. The long-awaited report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) conclusively rebuts those claims. Fire alone brought down the building, the report concludes, pointing to thermal expansion of key structural members as the culprit. The report also raises concerns that other large buildings might be more vulnerable to fire-induced structural failure than previously thought. —Arianne CohenPopular Mechanics Read more about the NIST report ———– Jon Rappaport’s entry on 5.21.13 Jon can be counted on to be critical of governmental and corporate reports.  Latest is an example concerning how reporters are compromised through threats derived from reporting information from sources.  It would be good to have a critical view of the above governmental report about World Trade Center 7.  I feel THE REPORT still does not settle the matter.   It’s just too coincidental, a fire takes down a building close to the two attacked buildings, leading to a massive police state political take over (I.E., gw BUSH ET AL), AT THE SAME TIME!!!  WHY SHOULD THIS HAVE OCCURRED THEN?   https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox/13ecda393c532bd8

Eric Holder is a Jerk  

For those who already know that Eric Holder is a jerk from his stance on MJ, might like to read the following blast from Jon Rappaport.   https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox/13eb3586ba0a9c2b

Nice short article on sea salts.  I agree with the idea of having and using a salt with other minerals than just sodium chloride.  Having salt with Magnesium is certainly been shown to be helpful or will be found out soon enough.  The last to know, of course, will be the physicians.  They must toe the line which the insurance companies limit them to.  And of course business people who hired statisticians and make their decisions based on financial concerns are the best informed people to be making the decisions about what you should take.   https://mail.google.com/mail/ca/u/0/#inbox/13eb29513079f21c   —————–  

HALLELUJAH! PRAISE REASON!

Saluting two nonreligious newsmakers

May 23, 2013

While President Obama was counseling “faith in the Almighty” and prayer in the wake of the devastating Oklahoma tornado (to his credit, promising to “back up those prayers with deeds”), a brave secular survivor of that tornado has become a social network phenomenon. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Tuesday asked Rebecca Vitsmun, a young mother holding her 19-month-old son Anders amid the rubble left in the tornado’s wake, whether “she thanked the Lord” for her survival. He seemed pretty surprised as she, laughingly, forthrightly replied, “I’m actually an atheist.”

“Praying for something but not doing anything to make it happen has the same effect as writing to Santa and not letting mummy read the letter.

Learning from SARS The outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome in 2002–2003 exacted considerable human and economic costs from countries involved. It also exposed major weaknesses in several of these countries in coping with an outbreak of a newly emerged infectious disease. In the 10 years since the outbreak, in addition to the increase in knowledge of the biology and epidemiology of this disease, a major lesson learned is the value of having a national public health institute that is prepared to control disease outbreaks and designed to coordinate a national response and assist localities in their responses.   read more: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/eid/article/19/6/12-1426_article.htm?s_cid=eid-gDev-email
