Isn’t it interesting that one of the poorest countries in the planet has a better medical health system than one of the richest ones? Goes to show you it’s all about money in the US. (Going bankrupt because you had to go to hospital is not health care, it’s barbaric greed)
Oh, and by the way, get the hell out of Cuba USA! It does not belong to you! Barbarians and bullies is what the US is made of.
Cuba and America strengthen new relationship by sharing lung cancer vaccine.
The U.S. and Cuba have had a precarious relationship at best for the last century, but President Obama has seen to it that that relationship be a part of America’s past. Obama is set to visit Cuba in just a few days, making it the first visit by a U.S. president in 90 years, and has lifted the embargo that was imposed on them for the last 55 years. As a way to further the strength of the two countries’ relationship and to hopefully benefit American citizens, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed an agreement last year with Cuba to have CimaVax, a Cuban vaccine used to treat lung cancer, to the U.S.
The vaccine has seen a considerable amount of success in terms of extending the life of those living with advanced lung cancer. USA Today reported that “most patients with advanced lung cancers who received the vaccine lived two to four months longer than those who didn’t receive it.” The vaccine has also extended the life of those who receive it by 8-10 months in those with the most EGF proteins, which is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation. The vaccine has had so much success in Cuba that it has been made free for every patient and costs the government very little to make.
Like all new drugs and vaccines, especially those that are international, CimaVax will need to be put through trials in the U.S. to assess the results in American patients. These trials will need to yield the same results as those reached in both Cuban and European trials in order to be deemed safe and made available in America.
The promising international results give an exciting insight into what to expect from the American trials. This vaccine works differently than other treatments for cancer, as it works to cut off the food supply for the cancer cells in order to starve them out and prevent them from growing and worsening the patient’s health. This is certainly not a cure by any means, but this vaccine could be the foundation for thinking about different and innovative methods for treating and maybe even preventing cancers. Hopefully the relationship between the two nations can continue to be strengthened through similar intellectual and beneficial trades like the sharing of CimaVax.

A video posted Feb. 7 on YouTube attempts to explain what the chemwebs are, and where they are coming from.
According to the video, which is from The HAARP Report, the webs are phthalates – molecules of various types which, when they get longer, form webs on the ground.
As to why they are in existence, the video says that phthalates are able to block UV light better than any other organic acid normally floating around in the atmosphere. They are formed in cooling jet exhaust by a “vanadium catalyst in the jet fuel,” says the video.
In explaining why the program exists, The HAARP Report referenced a 2004 scholarly paper from Norway showing that phthalic acid is better at absorbing harmful UV light in the Earth’s atmosphere. The video also cites scientific studies that indicate high exposure to phthalates by pregnant women can lower the IQ of the child, as well as having other negative health impacts.
NaturalNews editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, published microscopic photos of the web-like fibers in November, after someone sent them to him. Adams examined and photographed the filaments in his forensic science lab, noting that the person who sent them reported this:
“These filaments were as high as approximately 35′ to 50′ above the ground, gently floating from west to east. I didn’t see any floating past me below the trees. The sky was blue and cloudless, except for some wisps of contrails or chem-trails. The previous 3 days in this area we were HEAVILY chem-trailed, especially at night.”
But if these are man-made “webs,” what is the purpose of regularly distributing them in the skies above? Is it some sort of geo-engineering program, and if so, what is it for? What is the government attempting to geo-engineer?
According to an editorial review on Amazon.com about the DVD, What In The World Are They Spraying? what is occurring may well be something sinister:
“By now everyone has seen crisscrossing streaks of white clouds trailing behind jet aircraft, stretching from horizon to horizon, eventually turning the sky into a murky haze. Our innate intelligence tells us these are not mere vapor trails from jet engines, but no one yet has probed the questions: who is doing this and why. With the release of this video, all of that has changed.
“Here is the story of a rapidly developing industry called geo-engineering, driven by scientists, corporations, and governments intent on changing global climate, controlling the weather, and altering the chemical composition of soil and water – all supposedly for the betterment of mankind. Although officials insist that these programs are only in the discussion phase, evidence is abundant that they have been underway since about 1990 – and the effect has been devastating to crops, wildlife, and human health.
“We are being sprayed with toxic substances without our consent and, to add insult to injury, they are lying to us about it. Do not watch this documentary if you have high blood pressure.”
Others claim that what is occurring is “solar radiation management,” hence the use of phthalates to block UV rays. Even the Washington Post has discussed this concept, but claims it isn’t a real one – yet – and that anyone who believes chemicals are being sprayed via plane exhaust is a lunatic conspiracy theorist (no surprise there).
But the fact is, scientists are actively pursuing this kind of technology, if it doesn’t exist already (and a number of scientists and scholars have come forth to say that it does). More than that, even the Post acknowledges that weather control research has gone on since the 1940s.
It’s hard to imagine that scientists have learned next to nothing in more than 70 years.

“Our climate and environmental scientists are some of the best in the world. We wouldn’t stop supporting out elite Olympic athletes just as they’re winning gold medals.”
— Andrew Holmes, President, Australian Academy of Science, Feb 9, 2016
It is hardly a popular thing to be a gloomy Cassandra, and various climate change scientists have been wondering just how far to go with being dark about the earth’s future. Each time data is released, the negativity increases. The politicians, depending on persuasion, either refuse to accept the figures on rising temperatures, or dive head long into the figures desperate to identify solutions.
NASA’s recent release of figures suggesting that February saw the biggest month-on-month rise in global warming on record has certainly induced a certain pessimism. The organisation’s calculations show that a figure of 1.35C above the long-term average was noted, more than 0.2C than January this year.
It adds to the possibility that 2016 will become the warmest year the earth has seen on human record. Some of this is explained by the large and concluding El Nino event in the Pacific Ocean, though climate change scientists insist that human inducement is unmistakable.
NASA is by no means the only scientific body to come up with such figures. Scientists at the Copernicus Climate Service have also come to the conclusion that February 2016 was the warmest month on record, finding that February was more than 5C above the 1981-2010 average for the month over a region spanning Finland to Greece, moving to western Siberia. More data is set to arrive from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Met Office.
For all such doom’s day activity, the troops of denial are just as well aligned against the troops enlisted in the battle against climate change. Do not, goes the argument, confuse weather with climate. Adding to this are a host of other suggestions: that the battle is being lost in terms of what is being done; and the other fundamental point on whether the climate change scientist has outlived his or her usefulness.
As if admitting the latter point, the budgetary analysts and policy makers in various countries have taken the shears to the science outlays for climate change research. In Australia, the problem is particularly acute, a point made more absurd by the fact that it stands to suffer enormously because of the effects of climate change. Administrators and the budget squirrels have decided that climate change scientists are ripe for the chop, the obsolete pessimists who did much to put the argument into focus, but have not, as yet, come up with solutions.
Australia’s main science research facility, the CSIRO, advertises itself as a body that works “to understand the role of the atmosphere in the Earth system and provide comprehensive, rigorous science to help Australia understand, respond to and plan for a changing climate.” This is management-speak, pitched to audiences not necessarily aware about the razoring that is taking place within the organisation.
The announcement last month that 350 jobs would be lost from the premier Australian science institution did much to trigger the ire of both Australian and international scientists. “I am stunned by reports,” claimed Professor Penny Sackett of the Climate Change Institute at the Australian National University, “that CSIRO management no longer thinks measuring and understanding climate change is important, innovative or impactful.”
The sacking sentiment was outlined by chief executive Larry Marshall, who claimed in a message to staff that the question of human-induced climate change was hardly something that should be asked anymore.
This bureaucratic initiative to cull the scientific foot soldiers came with some fanfare, suggesting that the main task had been accomplished. “Our climate models are among the best in the world and our measurements honed those models to prove global climate change. That question has been answered, and the new question is what we do about it, and how we can find solutions for the climate we will be living with?”
All in all, some 2,900 scientists spanning 60 nations have appealed to the Australian Prime Minister to halt the plans in a letter stating that, “The decision to decimate a vibrant and world-leading research program shows a lack of insight, and a misunderstanding of the importance and significance of Australian contributions to global and regional climate change research.”
The scepticism towards that curious creature known as the climate change scientist is hardly confined to Australia. Behind every scientist is a bureaucrat, and behind that bureaucrat is a politician. The US House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology, led by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), is an Alice in Wonderland obscenity of denial and dispute, hectoring any scientist that dares combat the narrative of climate change denial.
When Science published a paper in June last year suggesting that global warming had not experienced a “hiatus” from 1998 to 2012, Smith switched into attack mode, demanding emails and proof that the science had been manipulated.
The Australian response is, in a sense, even more absurd for coming from within the scientific organisation itself. Having noted a problem, it assumes that adaptability and resilience to the most fundamental of environmental challenges will improve by removing the very personnel that helped identify that problem. The ever selfish assumption here is that the work will be done elsewhere, and the data generated in other laboratories. Such foolishness might prove to be a crime in some circles, but it is certainly the most terrible of blunders.
David Drumm, chief executive of Anglo from 2005 to 2008, is facing charges that he acted as a key figure in Ireland’s worst banking disaster. The institution’s collapse in late 2008 sparked the Irish government debt crisis and subsequent ‘bailout’ from the European Commission, ECB and IMF.
The bank posted the worst corporate results in Irish history with losses of €17.5 billion for 2010. Ironically, the now-defunct financial institution was named the world’s top performing bank between 2001-05 at a World Economic Forum in Davos.
Drumm, 49, is accused of propping up the toxic bank’s ailing share price through false accounting, falsification of documents, and giving a false report to the stock exchange, The Irish Times reports. He has reportedly denied any wrongdoing.
Drumm, who was Anglo’s chief executive from 2005 to 2008, is also alleged to have been involved in transactions amounting to €7 billion between Anglo and another Irish lending institution, Irish Life and Permanent. The loans, issued as the economic crisis worsened, bolstered the bank’s apparent liquidity levels.
Drumm was arrested in Boston in October 2015 on foot of an Irish extradition request.
The former banker initially fought the warrant to return him to Ireland, with his lawyer stating at a Boston extradition hearing that she needed time to examine whether the Irish application had a “political purpose.” Drumm eventually withdrew his objection to extradition.

The ‘Ending the Era of Tax Havens’ study wants the secretive offshoring of wealth eliminated and argues that the wealthiest one percent – around 600,000 people – are taking millions of pounds more than they’re due.
While the richest have increased their wealth by around 79 percent to £3.7 million (US$5.3 million) each over the last 15 years, the poorest have seen a rise of only 45 percent from £1,100 to £1,600, the report states.
“£3.7 million could buy outright an eight-bedroom home with swimming pool in Wimbledon, South-West London,” whereas £1,600 would not cover “five days rent of the same property,” said Oxfam.
The report was released on Monday ahead of Wednesday’s 2016 Budget announcement by Tory Chancellor George Osborne.
“Currently, a privileged minority are able to hide billions offshore away from tax authorities, which unfairly increases the burden on the rest – especially people who are already struggling to get by,” Chief Executive Mark Goldring said in a blog on the Oxfam website.
Goldring called for an end to the shadowy world of “tax dodging” and to permissive attitudes which had ingrained the practice.
“It’s time the Government ended the secrecy that allows tax dodgers to get away without paying their fair share, robbing the UK – and poor countries – of vital revenue that could help fund public services and provide a strong safety net for most vulnerable,” he said.
The report focuses on “secrecy jurisdictions” which allow taxes to be avoided by concentrating cash in place like Bermuda and the Cayman Islands.
It acknowledges in that the British government has taken up a “significant role in the fight against global poverty,” but adds “‘secrecy jurisdictions,’ and the financial secrecy they promote, are a major driver of inequality and corruption.”
“[These] undermine attempts to end poverty and suffering” both at home and globally.
