Judge restores protections for grizzly bears, blocking hunts

Judge restores protections for grizzly bears, blocking hunts | 24 Sept 2018 | A U.S. judge ordered federal protections restored for grizzly bears in the Northern Rocky Mountains on Monday, a move that blocks the first grizzly hunts planned in the Lower 48 states in almost three decades. Wyoming and Idaho had been on the cusp of allowing hunters to kill up to 23 bears this fall. U.S. District Judge Dana Christensen had twice delayed the hunts, and the latest order blocking them was due to expire later this week.

Now #MeToo is coming for your thought crimes

Now #MeToo is coming for your thought crimes | 23 Sept 2018 | The #MeToo movement's search for demons to slay has expanded well beyond just those accused of sexual misbehavior. Now, if you’ve done anything to disseminate the accused's side of the story, they're coming for #YouToo. Last week, Ian Buruma not so quietly left his position as editor of The New York Review of Books. The mob had descended on him days earlier for publishing an essay by Jian Ghomeshi. Ghomeshi was a Canadian broadcaster who'd been accused of sexual assault early on in the #MeToo movement. Ghomeshi stood trial in Canada for sexual assault of six women and was acquitted of all charges in 2015. Ghomeshi's piece attempted an apology and an explanation of how he became a person he despised...In a new front for the mob, it’s not enough to target the perpetrator of the misdeed. They are now targeting those who offer them a platform like Buruma did, or say anything warm about them at all.

Gardasil is a deadly concoction that leads to permanent, devastating health effects

Gardasil is a deadly concoction that leads to permanent, devastating health effects | 18 Sept 2018 | Just what are you signing up for when you get the Gardasil vaccine? ...The shot has already been blamed for more than 200 deaths, along with more than 57,000 adverse events in the U.S. Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System.

The only reason this study hasn't gotten a lot of publicity is because the journal had to retract it shortly after publishing it because the author had used a pseudonym.
