In U.N. Speech, Noam Chomsky Blasts United States for Supporting Israel, Blocking Palestinian State

As U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announces plans to set up an investigation into the attacks on United Nations facilities during Israel’s recent assault on the Gaza Strip, we broadcast the speech of world-renowned political dissident Noam Chomsky, who recently spoke in the hall of the U.N. General Assembly at an event sponsored by the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People. "The pattern that was set in January 1976 continues to the present," said Chomsky, Institute Professor Emeritus at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Israel rejects a settlement of these terms and for many years has been devoting extensive resources to ensuring it will not be implemented with the unremitting and decisive support of the United States — military, economic, diplomatic and ideological."If you miss this show listen on demand ...

This Past Week's Guest
Diana Nightingale

While recognized as, The First Lady of Transformation, and has dedicated most of her adult life in the service of helping others, many still think of Diana, first, as the wife and widow of, Earl Nightingale a legendary giant in the personal achievement world. Make no mistake, Diana Nightingale does not stand in the shadow of her late husband, but shines brightly on her own. With her own personal, powerful message Diana has been speaking to audiences for more than 30-years, was an advocate for teen-pregnancy programs, and was a local board member of the Lee County Mental Health Association. Diana is an author, seminar/retreat leader, an international speaker addressing audiences across the USA and overseas. She offers grief counseling, life coaching, has a Doctorate Degree in Religious Studies and is a Stephen Minister. Diana, brings new life to the time-tested Nightingale messages and shows how to make them work in today’s ever-changing world. Even during the bleakest of times, she is quick to enforce the age-old truth that “we become what we think about”. In her latest book, “The Spiritual Flight of The Nightingale”, Diana tells how she finds inspiration from the world around her and from the lessons she has learned from life. In her book, “Learning To Fly As A Nightingale” Diana tells of her life before meeting Earl; Earl’s life before meeting Diana; Their time together and then how she found her wings and was able to fly again after Earl’s passing. The experiences, pain and joy she shares gives insight to what others experience in their lives. Diana’s passion for radio started as she engineered her husband’s radio shows and later as she became more and more in demand as a radio and TV guest, she longed to be on the other side of the microphone. During the radio days spent with Greg Norman of Universal 7 radio network, Diana once again realized the power of the spoken word and the importance of positive programming in a negative driven society. Now, Diana has found her radio home and is broadcasting her series called, “Holiday On Earth™…Journey Into Meaning™”. Diana is the mother of three adult children, Kim, Dayne and Jill, and is the proud grandmother (Mimi) to four adult grandchildren, Dan, Sabra, Jordan and Juliette.

Second-Guessing Ourselves
We like to think of ourselves as self-aware, reflective beings, but psychological studies demonstrate that we’re usually overconfident in the accuracy of our own beliefs. Memory, for example, can be extremely unreliable, even when we feel certain we know what happened. Surprisingly, when we’re made aware of this, we adjust our level of confidence in ourselves only slightly. How, then, can we doubt ourselves in a rational and efficient manner to bring our beliefs closer to reality? And, just as importantly, how do we prevent ourselves from falling into the other extreme of constant second guessing? John and Ken don't think twice with Sherri Roush from UC Berkeley, author of Tracking Truth: Knowledge, Evidence, and Science. This program was recorded live at the Marsh Theatre in Berkeley, California. - See more at: http://philosophytalk.org/shows/second-guessing-ourselves#sthash.8351d8g1.dpuf

Heart Medication Digoxin Linked to Higher Risk of Death for Some

    By Steven Reinberg, HealthDay News


Increase seen in people with certain abnormal heart rhythms, study finds.

Digoxin, a drug that's been used to treat heart problems for about 200 years, might increase the risk of dying in certain patients.

New research suggests that for people who have a particular type of irregular heart rhythm, called atrial fibrillation, taking the drug digoxin may increase the risk of dying by more than 20 percent.

"We found in 122,000 patients with atrial fibrillation, those treated with digoxin were more likely to die [during the study period] than patients prescribed other medications," said lead researcher Dr. Mintu Turakhia, an assistant professor of cardiology at Stanford University School of Medicine in Palo Alto, Calif.

Although the current research found an association between the drug digoxin and a higher risk of death for people with atrial fibrillation or flutter, the study does not show that the drug caused the higher risk of death.

RELATED: 7 Hidden Dangers for People With Atrial Fibrillation

However, Turakhia thinks the risk may be the result of digoxin causing other dangerous abnormal heart rhythms.

"Even though you are being given a drug to slow down your heart rate in atrial fibrillation, it may be causing other problems with your heart that may increase the risk of death," he said.

Digoxin is made from extracts of the foxglove plant, also called digitalis. It has long been a standard treatment for atrial fibrillation, according to background information in the study.

Given that there are other treatments for atrial fibrillation, Turakhia wonders why digoxin should be the treatment of choice for these patients. "There are other safer drugs out there," he said.

Safer alternatives may include drugs known as beta-blockers or calcium channel blockers, Turakhia said. "These have never been tied to an increased risk of death or major concerns with safety," he said.

Turakhia thinks patients taking digoxin for atrial fibrillation should talk with their doctor about possibly switching to another medication.

  
    A debate over the merits of eating less salt escalated when one of the most comprehensive studies yet suggested cutting back on sodium too much actually poses health hazards

Sodium is an essential nutrient

Sodium is the main component of salt but they are not the same thing. Salt’s chemical name is sodium chloride. Sodium regulates blood pressure and blood volume and affects other such crucial processes as muscle and nerve function.
 

High levels are associated with cardiovascular risk

New research suggests intake over 6,000 milligrams a day is associated with increased risk of death, heart attack, stroke and heart failure. And there is broad consensus that people with high levels of dietary sodium should reduce it, especially if they have high blood pressure.
Current guidelines call for very low levels

U.S. guidelines promoted by the Food and Drug Administration and other agencies call for daily consumption lower than 2,300 milligrams. The American Heart Association recommends a 1,500-milligram daily cap in sodium intake.
 

Americans eat a lot of sodium

Current average daily intake in the U.S. is 3,400 milligrams, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 75% of dietary sodium comes from food you buy in supermarkets or restaurants; another 12% comes naturally in food; the rest is from the salt shaker.

Reducing intake to low levels hasn’t been shown to produce a benefit

A new global study from Canadian researchers suggests daily intake below 3,000 milligrams is associated with a 27% higher risk of death or serious cardiovascular event within nearly four years.  A report last year from the Institute of Medicine failed to find evidence that compliance with intake below 2,300 milligrams reduces risk of major problems from cardiovascular disease.

Court: Tesla Motors can sell directly to buyers
Posted: Sep 15, 2014 2:45 PM EST Updated: Sep 15, 2014 2:57 PM EST

BOSTON (AP) - The highest court in Massachusetts has thrown out a lawsuit aimed at blocking Tesla Motors from selling its electric cars directly to consumers.

The Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers Association had sought to prevent the direct sales, citing a state law designed to block car dealers from abuses by car manufacturers.

The Supreme Judicial Court unanimously ruled Monday that the association and two dealers - Herb Connolly Chevrolet and Fisker Norwood - didn't have legal standing to bring the case.

The court said Natick has since given Tesla a license to operate a sales office at the Natick Mall.

World's Largest Ice Sheets Melting At Fastest Rate Ever Recorded

Greenland and Antarctica are home to the two largest ice sheets in the world, and a new report released Wednesday says that they are contributing to sea level rise twice as much as they were just five years ago.

Using the European Space Agency's CryoSat 2 satellite, the Alfred Wegener Institute from Germany has found that western Antarctica and Greenland are losing massive amounts of ice.

"Combined, the two ice sheets are thinning at a rate of 500 cubic kilometres per year," said glaciologist Dr. Angelika Humbert, one of the authors of the AWI study, in a press release. "That is the highest speed observed since altimetry satellite records began about 20 years ago."

The report, published in the online magazine The Cryosphere, says the CryoSat 2 satellite measured over 200 million elevation data points in Antarctica and 14.3 million in Greenland to track the loss of ice mass over the last several years. "When we compare the current data with those from the ICESat satellite from the year 2009, the volume loss in Greenland has doubled since then," said Humbert. "The loss of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet has in the same time span increased by a factor of three."

Somewhat encouragingly, the East Antarctic Ice Sheet is gaining mass. However, those gains are very modest and don't make up for the loss of ice in West Antarctica and Greenland. Greenland is losing 350 cubic kilometers of ice annually, mostly from its southwestern coast, and accounts for almost 75 percent of the total volume lost each year. Together, the flows from Antarctica and Greenland could cover the entire Chicagoland area with 600 meters of ice each year.

 


Vermont highlights more electric car chargers
Posted: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST Updated: Jul 07, 2014 10:41 AM EST

MIDDLESEX, Vt. (AP) - It's getting easier to drive an electric vehicle through Vermont between Montreal and Boston.

Top state officials and the head of the state's largest electric utility inaugurated a new vehicle charging station in Middlesex, halfway between the Canadian border and New Hampshire.

One of two stations can charge a car nearly full in 45 minutes.

Gov. Peter Shumlin says it's a big step toward the creation of an electric vehicle corridor between Montreal and Boston.

Officials say electric vehicles cost the equivalent of about a dollar a gallon to drive.

Access to a full network of charging stations is critical since many electric-only vehicles have a short range.

Currently there are 27 charging stations in Vermont with another 15 planned.

 

North Dakota's Latest Fracking Problem

North Dakota is forced to burn off 30% of the natural gas produced from fracking in the Bakken Shale as infrastructure and regulations struggle to keep pace with its oil boom.

Food-Waste Recycling Faces Hiccups

More states want to recycle their food waste instead of dumping it into landfills, but they have run into a snag: The infrastructure needed to turn huge quantities of table scraps into fertilizer or electricity isn't ready.

Tesla's Clever Patent Move Is Already Paying Off

Tesla may already be reaping the rewards of freeing up its patents.

Four days after CEO Elon Musk offered most of his company’s patents to rivals in hopes of cultivating a bigger electric car market, Nissan and BMW are “keen on talks” to cooperate on charging networks, the Financial Times reported on Sunday.

That pretty much validates why the Silicon Valley company freed up its patents in the first place: Tesla wants its superchargers to become the industry standard.

That way, other companies will use and enlarge Tesla's existing network of 97 charging stations that currently dot a path across the continental United States, making it more and more feasible to swap fuel-burning cars for battery-electric ones, even for long-distance travel.

White House Plans Another Big Climate Push

WASHINGTON -– One year after President Barack Obama rolled out his climate change action plan, the administration is putting fresh emphasis on its environmental agenda.

The White House plans to host two roundtable discussions this week on the economic threats that climate change poses and the "opportunities to overcome those risks," a White House official said in an email Monday night, which emphasized the potential costs of not addressing planet-warming emissions.

Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and White House leaders also plan to meet with billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer and former Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson on Wednesday to discuss a report they will release this week titled, "Risky Business," which assess the economic costs of climate change. Steyer and Paulson are the co-chairs for the report.

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager turned environmental activist, has pledged to spend $100 million backing political candidates who support action on climate change through his political group, NextGen Climate Action. He has focused much of his political work on opposing the Keystone XL pipeline, which the Obama administration is considering for possible approval.

Lew, White House advisers John Podesta and Valerie Jarrett, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration head Kathryn Sullivan and Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate on Tuesday will meet with insurance industry representatives on climate impacts.

Obama himself will address the annual dinner of the League of Conservation Voters on Wednesday night. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz and Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell plan to speak earlier Wednesday at an event sponsored by the League of Conservation Voters. The group is the biggest electoral spender among environmental groups.

Weekend

Weekend Report: 'Fury' Topples 'Gone Girl,' 'Birdman' Soars in Limited Release
by Ray Subers
Fury


Brad Pitt's Fury was able to usurp first place from Gone Girl this weekend, though it was a closer race than anticipated.

Meanwhile, Birdman opened at four locations in New York and Los Angeles and scored one of the best per-theater averages ever for a live-action movie.

Opening at 3,173 theaters, Fury rolled in to first place this weekend with an estimated $23.5 million. This debut is in the same general ballpark as movies like Captain Phillips ($25.7 million), Act of Valor ($24.5 million) and The Monuments Men ($22 million). That's a fine range to be in, though it's a bit disappointing considering how far off it is from recent R-rated thrillers Gone Girl ($37.5 million) and The Equalizer ($34.1 million).

Sony's marketing played up Fury's intense tank-on-tank action, which made it a strong option among male moviegoers. Unfortunately, the movie never really connected with women, who wound up accounting for just 40 percent of the audience on opening weekend. It also struggled with younger moviegoers: the audience was 51 percent over the age of 35.

With an "A-" CinemaScore and very solid reviews (80 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), Fury should hold up well in the coming weeks. A final total in the $70-to-$80 million range is likely.

Gone Girl had another strong hold in its third weekend: the David Fincher thriller eased 33 percent to an estimated $17.8 million. Over the weekend, it passed Fincher's last two movies (The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and has now earned $107.1 million total. The movie remains on track to finish with around $160 million.

Canadians will not be intimidated': Canadian PM Harper signals shift towards American-style anti-terror tactics


Sergeant-at-arms Kevin Vickers received a hero's welcome Thursday morning as he entered Canada's Parliament just before Prime Minister Stephen Harper spoke about Wednesday's terrorist attack.

Vickers held back tears as he walked slowly through the Parliament chamber the day after killing gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau. Harper once again vowed his nation would not cower in the face of terror and signaled a radical shift towards American-style anti-terror tactics.

"Canadians will not be intimidated," said Harper. "We will be vigilant, but we will not run scared.

"We will be prudent, but we will not panic."

Harper called both the Ottawa shootings and the hit-and-run attack this week in Quebec terrorist attacks. He then promised expanded powers for his country's anti-terror agents.

"Our laws and police powers need to be strengthened in the areas of surveillance, detention and arrest," said Harper. "They need to be much strengthened... that work will be expedited."

America's northern neighbor has laws passed after 9/11 that are aimed at tackling such problems, the Combating Terrorism Act and the Strengthening Citizenship Act to Better Protect Canadians and Strengthen Institutions, but Harper wants them further overhauled.

"We live in a dangerous world. Terrorism has been here with us for a while, and we've come dangerously close on a number of occasions," he said.

Many of Harper's words echoed speeches given by then-U.S. President George W. Bush in the days after the 9/11 terror attacks.

White House fence jumper charged with assault


WASHINGTON (AP) -- The 23-year-old Maryland man who climbed over the White House fence Wednesday night has been charged with felonies for assaulting two police dogs and making threats, the Secret Service said Thursday.

Dominic Adesanya of Bel Air, Maryland, is in custody of the U.S. Marshals Service for previous outstanding warrants, Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary said. Adesanya has also been charged with four misdemeanor counts of resisting arrest and unlawful entry.

After climbing over the fence, Adesanya was swiftly apprehended on the North Lawn by uniformed Secret Service agents and their dogs. He was unarmed when he was arrested.

President Barack Obama was at the White House at the time of Wednesday's incident.

Video of the incident recorded by TV news cameras shows a man in white shorts on the lawn just inside the fence. The man lifts his shirt as if to show that he is unarmed, then is seen kicking and punching the two Secret Service dogs.

Leary said the two dogs, named Hurricane and Jordan, were taken to a veterinarian and treated for minor bruising. Both dogs were cleared to return to duty.

The incident came about a month after a previous White House fence jumper carrying a knife sprinted across the same lawn, ran past armed uniformed agents and entered the mansion before he was felled in the ceremonial East Room and taken into custody.

Syria Airstrikes Kill 553, Including 32 Civilians, During Monthlong Offensive Against ISIS: Monitor

BEIRUT, Oct 23 (Reuters) - Air strikes by U.S.-led forces have killed 553 people, including 32 civilians, during a month-long campaign in Syria against Islamic State militants, a Syrian monitoring group which tracks the violence said on Thursday.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the majority of the deaths, 464, were Islamic State fighters. Six of the civilians were children and five were women, the Observatory said.

It said 57 members of the al Qaeda-affiliated Nusra Front were also killed in the air strikes, which started a month ago. Strikes hit the provinces of Aleppo, Deir al-Zor, Idlib, Raqqa and al-Hassakah, it said.

Iraqi Kurds Approved To Join Fight Against ISIS In Kobani

IRBIL, Iraq (AP) — Lawmakers in Iraq's largely autonomous Kurdish region Wednesday authorized peshmerga forces to go to neighboring Syria and help fellow Kurds combat Islamic State militants in the key border town of Kobani, providing much-needed boots on the ground.

The unprecedented deployment will almost certainly depend on the support of Turkey, whose president criticized a U.S. airdrop of arms to Kurdish fighters after some of the weapons wound up in the hands of the extremists.

Turkey, which has riled Kurdish leaders and frustrated Washington by refusing to allow fighters or weapons into Kobani, said this week it would help Iraqi Kurdish fighters cross into Syria to help their brethren against the militants, who also are being attacked by a U.S.-led campaign of airstrikes.

Labor Secretary: 'We Suck' On The Minimum Wage

Labor Secretary Tom Perez said Thursday the United States' current federal minimum wage is an international embarrassment, specifically calling out New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) for fighting attempts to raise the wage floor.

Speaking at a breakfast hosted by Bloomberg News, Perez noted the U.S.'s dismal standing among the 34 countries who belong to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. The current federal minimum wage of $7.25, when compared to the median wage of full-time workers, ranks among the lowest of all member countries.

Last year, President Barack Obama threw his support behind a Democratic proposal to raise the federal wage floor to $10.10 an hour. In January, Obama announced he would raise the minimum wage for federal contractors to $10.10, pushing Congress to do the same on a national level.

Amber Vinson, Dallas Nurse Infected With Ebola, Is Free Of Virus: Family

The family of Dallas nurse Amber Vinson, the second person to contract Ebola in the United States, says that she is free of the virus, multiple media outlets reported.

However, a spokesperson for Emory University Hospital, where Vinson is being cared for, told the Dallas Morning News that they were "not aware of that at all."

Vinson's family said in a statement obtained by ABC that "we are overjoyed to announce that, as of yesterday [Tuesday] evening, officials at Emory University Hospital and the Centers for Disease Control are no longer able to detect virus in her body."

Nurses union to Obama: Enforce Ebola protections at hospitals

 

The largest union of registered nurses is calling for mandatory Ebola training at hospitals.

This week, registered nurses will gather in cities across the country—from Bangor, Maine, to St. Louis to Sacramento—to call on the Obama administration and Congress to institute standards for protecting front-line healthcare workers from Ebola.

The rallies, which have been organized by National Nurses United, the nation’s largest union for registered nurses, are the latest in a series of actions the group has taken to protect nurses from the virus since—as NNU co-president Deborah Burger puts it—“our worst fears were realized.”

Burger is referring to the disclosure last week that two nurses who had treated U.S. Ebola patient Thomas Eric Duncan at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital in Dallas had themselves contracted the disease.

In that wake of that news, the 185,000-member NNU staged a nationwide conference call to discuss hospitals’ readiness to respond to Ebola—11,500 nurses dialed in—and sent a letter to President Barack Obama, calling for him to order all hospitals to meet the highest “uniform, national standards and protocols.”

Heavy rains, gusty winds leave damage in RI and Mass

PROVIDENCE -

Torrential downpours overnight left deep puddles of standing water on many Massachusetts and Rhode Island roads, prompting closures, and making for a slow morning commute.

Massachusetts State Police official tweets Thursday report disabled vehicles and heavy backups around the state. About three dozen vehicles were disabled on Route 146 in Sutton where a large pothole opened up. Two lanes of Interstate 95 were closed in Weston.

A spokesman for the state Emergency Management Agency says water is slow to drain because leaves are clogging drains and catch basins.

There have been no reports of major injuries or death. At least one school district in Massachusetts canceled classes but no schools were reported closed in Rhode Island.

The National Weather Service says some areas received nearly three inches of rain.

In the Bay State National Grid was reporting about 9,400 customers without electricity early Thursday, while NStar had about 2,400 outages.

A flood watch was issued for widespread overnight rainfall of up to 2.5 inches. The offshore storm is not expected to taper off until the afternoon.

There has also been scattered reports of trees down and property damage in Rhode Island as this storm moved through our area overnight.

National Grid reported about 550 outages in the Ocean State.

EMA hosts school safety conference amid new school threats

Another letter has been sent to the Johnston Police Department outlining threats against the elementary schools in Johnston, Cranston, and Warwick.

And as police continue to work to find suspects, the Rhode Island Emergency Management Agency is hosting its annual school safety conference in Warwick.

These new threats were certainly the overwhelming theme of Thursday's conference at the Crowne Plaza.

Hundreds of school superintendents, teachers, and law enforcement officials were on hand to discuss safety policies, and share ideas on how to continue to work to keep schools safe.

The conference was not called because of the new threats on three local communities, but they were discussed at length, and officials say they are continuing to be vigilant in ensuring the safety of the students and staff.

"It's extremely important. People from all over the country are talking about the safety of our schools. The importance of it, we must stay vigilant on it, and how we stay prepared," said Sgt. Derek Borek of the Rhode Island State Police.

Dr. Frank Pallotta of the Burrillville School Department told NBC 10, "Our police department is extremely receptive to our calls, and our needs. We work very closely with them. We recently got assigned a school resource officer. Police visit our schools every day on a rotating basis."

Mass. ballot question proposes earned sick time

       

Mass. ballot question proposes earned sick time

FALL RIVER, Mass. -

Business is good when the customers are happy, whether it's a bakery or a barber shop. But often in these small businesses, workers have no benefits and no sick time.

If Massachusetts voters approve ballot question No. 4, employees would be entitled to earn and use sick time. Some say it's for the better.

"For employers, too, it would help to keep people … Plus, people's children get sick," said Angela Walters of Fall River.

"They shouldn't be penalized for being sick. If you're working hard through the year and you have a cold or a virus or some kind of detrimental disease, you should be paid for that," said Renee Azavedo of Fall River.

Business owners will tell you that it's not so simple.

A busy bakery in Fall River recently expanded. The owner is hiring employees, and she said if she had to give sick days, she wouldn't be able to do that.

"It treats, on the issue of sick pay leave, a business with three employees the same way that you would treat a business with 1,000 employees," said Robert Mellion of the Fall River Chamber of Commerce.

It might stop a small business from hiring more people, or it could be the final straw.

"When you add it to the increase in the minimum wage, when you add it to the fact that independent contractors pretty much don't exist in the state of Massachusetts, it just breaks the back of particularly the small person," Mellion

Even the workers at small businesses might have second thoughts about what seems like a compassionate measure, if it ends up costing them their jobs.

     interlocutor
    audio pronunciation
    \in-ter-LAH-kyuh-ter\

    DEFINITION

noun
: one who takes part in dialogue or conversation

    EXAMPLES

Steve's aggressive insistence on the correctness of his own opinions frequently made his interlocutors uncomfortable.

"I don't wonder that one of his interlocutors stared when he seriously suggested to them that MPs were paid too much, and would do their job much better if they were on the minimum wage." — Philip Hensher, The Independent (London), September 14, 2014

    DID YOU KNOW?

Interlocutor derives from the Latin interloqui, meaning "to speak between" or "to issue an interlocutory decree." (An interlocutory decree is a court judgment that comes in the middle of a case and is not decisive.) Interloqui, in turn, ultimately comes from the words inter-, "between," and loqui, "to speak." Some other words that English borrowed from loqui are loquacious ("talkative"), circumlocution (essentially, "talking around a subject"), ventriloquism ("talking in such a way that one's voice seems to come from someone or something else"), eloquent ("capable of fluent or vivid speech"), and grandiloquence ("extravagant or pompous speech").
