According to security analyst Troy Hunt, Nissan’s Leaf is an electric car that can be easily controlled using an internet connection and the car’s companion app, NissanConnectEV .

Troy became aware of this flaw because of an attendee at a workshop who owned a Leaf: “What the workshop attendee ultimately discovered was that not only could he connect to his Leaf over the Internet and control features independently of how Nissan had designed the app, he could control other people’s Leafs.” Continue reading Experts Warn: Hacking into Cars is Becoming Child’s Play

(NaturalNews) According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in the United States, there are approximately 87,000 dentists and, tragically, most of them never learn about the dangers of amalgams (mercury-based filling). Nearly half of these dentists still place highly-toxic mercury fillings in the mouth of unsuspecting people – it’s time to speak out about this crime against humanity.

The 2013 movie Snowpiercer took a fanciful look at what might happen if human attempts to engineer the climate were to go awry. A pair of reports from the National Research Council offers a sober, reality-based look. Photographer: Weinstein Company/Everett Collection

Maybe the problem with climate change isn’t that we’ve messed with the earth too much. Or maybe we haven’t messed with it enough.

The National Research Council, which writes fat, independent reports on complicated topics for policymakers, has at last weighed in on the utility— and possible consequences—of re-engineering the planet to ease global warming’s worst impacts. It’s called geoengineering, and with a name like that, what could go wrong? Never mind the instantaneous global ice age conjured in Snowpiercer, in which cooling chemicals poured into the atmosphere go awry.

The mainstream media is gloating over a study purporting that the HPV Vaccine is saving lives from cancer (source).

Now, in a study published in Pediatrics, Dr. Lauri Markowitz and her colleagues show how critical the vaccine can be to health. They report that rates of HPV infection among teens ages 14 to 19 dropped by 64% six years after the shot was recommended, and by 34% among people ages 20 to 24.

Wireless wake-up call | Jeromy Johnson | TEDxBerkeley

A Silicon-valley engineer turned technology health advocate, Jeromy Johnson discusses our attachment to technology and the health hazards such an addiction may hold.

[AV and event video provided by].

Jeromy Johnson is an expert in mitigating the negative impacts of Electromagnetic Field (EMF) exposure. He has a leading website on the topic and consults with individuals, families and organizations around the world to implement solutions that reduce and eliminate EMF pollution. Jeromy has an advanced degree in Civil Engineering and has worked in Silicon Valley for 15 years. After becoming what medical doctors call “Electro-hypersensitive” (EHS) in 2011 after extensive exposure to EMF radiation, he embarked on a journey of regaining his own health and educating others to critically evaluate theirs.

Could wifi-enabled devices be harmful to our health? You cannot see it or hear it but Wi-Fi blankets our homes, our schools and our cities. Australia’s safety agency says there’s no evidence of harm, but that’s not the same as saying its safe. A growing number of scientists are concerned that the widespread use of Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-enabled devices could be slowly making us sick. In this Catalyst investigation, Dr Maryanne Demasi explores whether our wireless devices could be putting our health at risk.

The weedkiller, Glyphosate, is known as a human carcinogen yet its use has soared 15-fold in the last 10 years since GM crops were introduced. The Soil Association reports.


The Soil Association is calling for a UK ban on the use of glyphosate which is sprayed on UK wheat as a pre-harvest weedkiller. It kills any unripe corn in the crop to speed up harvesting.

Kim Dotcom Addresses NZ PM in Parliament Arguing Against Extension of GCSB Powers (FULL SPEECH)

Kim Dotcom, whose extradition battle is continuing, spoke to Parliament’s Intelligence and Security Select Committee today — arguing against the extension of the GCSB’s powers.

“The new GCSB bill demands an expansion of spying powers. This is poorly timed,” he said.

Mr Dotcom received a formal apology from Prime Minister John Key after it was revealed the GCSB spied on him illegally. Addressing the committee, he called his fight “an injustice” and said he believed more New Zealanders had received the spy agency’s attention.

“I suspect the real scope of the spying by the GCSB is bigger than what we know today,” he said.

Mr Dotcom argued against the outsourcing of the agency’s powers, but Mr Key claimed it made sense and followed Mr Dotcom’s business model with MegaUpload.

“We cannot value human rights if we hand our information to a spy cloud.”

Mr Dotcom and associate Bram van der Kolk’s submission the proposed Bill was a “clear example of the type of state intelligence agency overreach”.

They went on to say spying on New Zealanders is unwarranted without safeguards and the proposed expansion of the GCSB aren’t justified. The submission says the passage of the Bill has been “unduly hasty”.

“We believe more time should be taken for public debate and inquiry before this Bill is passed.”

Earlier, former Green Party MP Keith Locke – who has previously claimed to have been spied upon by the Security Intelligence Service – told the select committee the GCSB spied on Chile and Mexico to help America in the lead-up to the Iraq War.

Mr Locke is arguing for more transparency from the Government’s spy agency.

“The Government can’t just continue to hide behind the smokescreen that I saw during the 12 years I was in Parliament,” he said.

Vikram Kumar, the former head of Internet New Zealand, knows the GCSB’s role well — having worked alongside the agency several times.

“I have been very impressed with their professionalism, with their hard work and with the constraints in which they operate,” he said, “Expanding the role of GCSB, particularly to economic well-being, is troubling.”

Mr Kumar says the reason behind this is the term “economic well-being” could refer to a number of things, and a shortage of skilled staff in New Zealand.

“The GCSB mindset is essentially a spying mindset, because that’s what they are […] and now we are trying to make them into a police mindset,” he said.

“We will be operating in an environment of suspicion, just as we see and in fact I’d say worse, than what we see in the US.”

Internet New Zealand’s Jordan Carter and Susan Chalmers spoke to the committee together. Mr Carter spoke of his concern any changes may have in the years to come.

“It needs to deal with people with less good motives and power in the future.”

Ms Chalmers was one of many submitters who spoke on the issue of metadata.

Metadata is data which provides information about one or more aspects of data. A common example is a digital photograph, which can show how large it is, when it was taken, where it was taken and other data.

“Metadata in many situations could actually be more revealing than the actual conversations themselves,” she said.
