Now, the leader of this research team says self-healing technology should hit consumer markets in the “very near future.”

In the United Kingdom, scientists are developing technology to equip machines with the power to heal themselves. British scientists are due to present self-healing aircraft wings to a Royal Society meeting in London this week.

A team of scientists from the University of Bristol has quietly developed the technology over the last few years. Now, the leader of this team says self-healing technology should hit consumer markets in the “very near future.” Examples cited included self-healing nail polish and self-repairing cracked phone screens.

The Independent described the technology:

“The team’s ingenious solution started ‘on the back of an envelope’ but has since developed into useable technology. It involves adding tiny, hollow ‘microspheres’ to the carbon material – so small that they look like a powder to the human eye – which break on impact, releasing a liquid healing agent. The agent seeps into the cracks left by the damage before coming into contact with a catalyst, triggering a rapid chemical reaction which causes it to harden.”

“We took inspiration from the human body,” said head of the team, Professor Wass. “We’ve not evolved to withstand any damage – if we were like that we’d have a skin as thick as a rhinoceros – but if we do get damaged, we bleed, and it scabs and heals. We just put that same sort of function into a synthetic material: let’s have something that can heal itself.”

Tests have determined that the hardened material is just as stable as the original, so planes will be able to heal themselves in mid-flight and be as functional as they were before being damaged.

It seems like this technology is being developed relatively quickly and is yet another technological advancement that will come to fruition in the next five years. It has the potential to completely change the world we live in.

Consumers will undoubtedly benefit from prolonged utility of things like cell phones and cars thanks to self-healing tech. Air travel will become ever safer. However, this new technology also raises questions regarding the rapid growth of autonomous machinery, computers and drones. Do we really want armed, autonomous drones flying around with the ability to repair themselves? What if the artificially intelligent machines decided to stop listening to us one day, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk has warned about? That’s a question that should be answered before these “what ifs” become reality.

10 Worst Food Companies that are Poisoning You Daily and Lying About It

By The Rundown Live

Coca-cola

Jake Anderson | ANTIMEDIA

Here are 10 food conglomerates and their subsidiaries that you might want to consider avoiding at the supermarket.

Much of the mainstream American food supply is laden with unhealthy additives, artificial flavorings, coloring, dyes, preservatives, hormones, genetically modified organisms (GMOs), and toxins. Not everyone agrees that GMOs have been proven harmful to humans, which is why the food chains listed here were selected specifically because they are responsible for a wide variety of health violations—the GMOs and their concealment from public knowledge are included for informational purposes.

As with all things, I urge you to read with your head on a swivel, adjusting your worldview based on new information.

#1: ConAgra Foods

ConAgra—whose brands include Hunt’s, Healthy Choice, Marie Callender’s, Orville Redenbacher, Slim Jim, Reddi-wip, Egg Beaters, Hebrew National, P. F. Chang’s, and Bertolli—labels many of their products under the confidence-inspiring statement of “made with all natural ingredients.” Their slogan, “Making the food you love,” is equally charming and disingenuous. Unless you contextualize them in a world of Orwellian doublespeak, these statements are the antithesis of truth. ConAgra was found guilty of “health code violations and bacterial contaminations at its food processing facilities, which have endangered consumers and in some cases been linked to deaths.” They’ve also concealed the use of GMOs in their products and practice unethical factory-farm sourcing.

In 2003, it was revealed that for two years, ConAgra had been poisoning Americans with E.coli-tainted beef, which the USDA was complicit in covering up.

#2: General Mills

Trisodium Phosphate (also known as TSP) is an additive and flavor enhancer found in thousands of frozen and processed foods, including kids’ cereals. It also happens to be an ingredient that was used in industrial cleaners—that is, until the EPA declared it unsafe for human exposure. Still, that doesn’t stop General Mills from using it. It’s okay, though, because GM states: “In our food products we use very small amounts [of TSP]”. Phew! Only a small amount of poison, thank God!

Up until just this year, General Mills’ foods also used BHT, or butylated hydroxytoluene, which animal tests have proven to be toxic.

General Mills has also come under fire for the widespread use of GMOs in nearly all of its foods. The company actively lobbies against any required labeling of GMO ingredients and it spreads disinformation concerning the safety of GMOs.

#3: Kraft Foods

There’s a reason why Kraft’s Mac N’ Cheese has such a beautifully golden hue to it: it’s the artificial coloring agent Yellow No. 6, which has been linked to hyperactivity, asthma, skin conditions and even cancer. In 2013, Kraft bowed to pressure and removed the artificial coloring, but tens of thousands of people have already consumed their products. Kraft also hides the presence of GMOs in their foods while actively fighting against regulations to require the labeling of these potentially dangerous ingredients. And, of course, their highly processed, pre-packaged products contain high amounts of fat, sugar and sodium.

Oh, and one last thing: as of March 18th, 2015, Kraft was in the process of recalling 6.5 million boxes of Mac N’ Cheese because some of them contained fragments of metal.

#4: Heinz

Heinz recently lost a lawsuit over false advertising. They’ve been busy lying to the public by labeling products made from GMOs as all natural. Whether you tolerate GMOs in your food or not, the fact is that this company has a proven track record of lying to the public.

Furthermore, Heinz products contain the following ingredients: tomato concentrate made from non-organic tomatoes, distilled vinegar, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), corn syrup, salt, and variety of spices and flavorings. Each squirt of that classic ketchup contains pesticides, HFCS (a neurotoxin), a particularly unhealthy type of sugar, and table salt, which dehydrates the body and depletes minerals.

You don’t have to stop eating ketchup—just switch to a healthy organic brand. The same goes for all of these foods.

#5: Campbell’s Soup Company

Is it a prerequisite for success that all large food companies must actively lie to their customers? Campbell’s soup, forever emblazoned in our minds by Andy Warhol’s iconic prints, has been a staple in most American homes for decades. Unfortunately, Campbell’s has been sued for hiding the presence of GMOs and for labeling foods as low-sodium when they contain as much salt as regular products. The average cup of Campbell’s soup contains a staggering 850mg of sodium. Unless that’s your only major meal of the day, consuming it means you’re risking heart attacks, diabetes and high blood pressure.

Just as importantly, if not more so, is the fact that for many decades, Campbell’s has lined its epoxy-resin cans with the toxic chemical, bisphenol A (BPA). “BPA has been linked in lab studies to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, early puberty in girls, type-2 diabetes, obesity, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,” according to Breastcancerfund.org. Only recently did the company finally bow to pressure and phase BPA out of its production.

#6: Coca-Cola

Does this really surprise anyone? By this point, you should be aware of the myriad health problems that Coca Cola and Diet Coca Cola cause, but sometimes it’s helpful to break it down to the specifics. Coca Cola has over a half dozen chemical additives that are detrimental to your health: E150D, a food coloring agent; E952, or Sodium Cyclamate, a synthetic sugar substitute that was actually banned by the FDA in 1969 and then inexplicably reinstated by WHO a decade later; E950, or Acesulfame Potassium, which is 200 times sweeter than sugar, very addictive, and is bad for the cardiovascular and nervous system; E951, or aspartame, a sugar substitute that has been linked to brain tumors, MS (Multiple Sclerosis), epilepsy, Graves’ disease, chronic fatigue, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, mental deficiency and tuberculosis; E338, or Orthophosphoric Acid, which can cause irritation of the skin and eyes; and E211, or Sodium Benzoate, a compound that, according to one study, damages human DNA.

#7: Nestlé

Nestlé is one of three companies using GMOs in their infant formula. Okay, so maybe you want to trust corporate-paid scientists about the safety of GMOs— but Nestlé also has the additional track record of using traces of the industrial poison melamine. For context, this is the same chemical that sickened at 50,000 Chinese infants in 2008.

Purina, which is owned by Nestlé, also had a lawsuit filed against it for the use of propylene glycol, a known animal toxin and component of automotive antifreeze in its dog food. After over 3,000 dogs became ill, Purina responded on its website that propylene glycol is “an FDA-approved food additive that is also in human foods like salad dressing and cake mix.” How reassuring.

#8: Kellogg’s

Kellogg’s has been the target of a nationwide ban over GMOs after spending over $1,012,552 on pro-GMO, anti-organic media propaganda in California, Washington, and Oregon in order to defeat GMO labeling initiatives. Did the nationwide ban impact Kellogg’s corporate ethos? Unfortunately, the company actually doubled down and its products now contain 100% GMO corn that contains traces of glyphosate and BT toxins.

#9: PepsiCo

Following the lead of Coca Cola, Pepsi vowed to changed its formula after a California law mandated a carcinogen warning for soft drinks. Nevertheless, the vast majority of Pepsi still contains 4-methylimidazole, or 4-Mel, which has been linked to cancer in humans.

Another major opponent of GMO labeling laws, PepsiCo invests millions in celebrity endorsements to make sure you don’t equate their products with obesity, diabetes or cancer. A 2014 study has shown Pepsi has even more sugar fructose than previously believed.

#10: Hershey’s

Along with many other chocolate companies, Hershey’s was recently found to have unsafe levels of lead—which can lead to neurological damage and learning disabilities—as well as cadmium, which can cause reproductive harm and damage to the kidneys, liver, and bones.

Additionally, Hershey’s has spent more than a million dollars to make sure you can’t be certain whether or not the candies you are eating contain GMOs. Their most popular treats contain many modified ingredients, a fact they obviously hope stays unknown.

The Pentagon Doesn’t Know What it Spent 8.5 Trillion Dollars on

By The Rundown Live

Pentagon

Claire Bernish | ANTIMEDIA

Since 1996, the Pentagon spent at least $8.5 trillion but they claim they don’t how or where the money was spent.

When government is completely dysfunctional and seems not to serve the people’s interests, we have to wonder where our tax dollars are going. Thanks to a Reuters investigation by Scot Paltrow, we have an answer—or, rather, a non-answer. Apparently, the Pentagon has made use of $8.5 trillion of our tax money handed over by Congress since 1996—but don’t ask what was done with the money. The Department of Defense doesn’t have a clue.

Audits of all federal agencies were mandated by law beginning in 1996, but the Pentagon is unique in never having complied. In almost 20 years, the Pentagon has never accounted for trillions it spent, in part because “plugging”—fudging the numbers—is standard operating procedure.

According to the investigation, employees of the Defense Finance and Accounting Service, the Pentagon’s primary accounting agency, were routinely told by superiors to take “unsubstantiated change actions.” These plugs—which amounted to falsifying the books—were used to bring the military’s figures in line with the Treasury’s when discrepancies couldn’t be traced and accounted for. According to DFAS employee, Linda Woodford, “A lot of times there were issues of numbers being inaccurate. We didn’t have the detail . . . for a lot of it.” This so-called plugging isn’t unique to DFAS—when it comes to resolving lost or missing information, it’s just business as usual in every branch of the service.

When it was announced that the military’s budget would be cut by $52 billion in 2014, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel had a fit, telling a defense conference: “[The cuts are] too deep, too steep, and too abrupt. This is an irresponsible way to govern and it forces the department into a very bad set of choices.” This is quite befuddling to the rest of us, as the $581 billion budget that year was more than the total of the next 10 biggest spenders combined—including Russia, China, and even Saudi Arabia (whose military budget made up 10.7% of their total GDP). In fact, the US budget was a full one-third of the entire amount spent on defense worldwide. If the DoD is this concerned about losing money to budget cuts, perhaps it should consider tackling its own systemic irresponsibility and discern what, precisely, $8.5 trillion in taxpayer funds has already paid for.

Many of the problems occurred in simple bookkeeping errors rather than actual financial losses. This was the case of one Columbus, Ohio DFAS office whose duplicate entries across multiple ledgers led to errors in financial reports for the Air Force in 2009, totaling $1.59 trillion—trillion—including $538 billion for plugs, which amounts to roughly 8 times what was allotted for the entire Air Force budget that year.

But the errors and manipulated numbers, though obviously problems in their own right, simply compound the issue for a Defense Department that seemingly has no control over its excessive spending habits.

The Defense Logistics Agency is responsible for supplying just about everything imaginable for the DoD. As Paltrow puts it, “everything from airplane parts to zippers for uniforms.” Speaking in a meeting with aviation industry executives in 2013, DLA director and Navy Vice Admiral Mark Harnitchek explained, “We have about $14 billion in inventory for lots of reasons, and probably half of that is excess to what we need.” But it keeps buying more—often adding to inventory of which there is already a surplus.

In one example, the DLA had stockpiled 15,000 Humvee front suspensions as of 2008, which is the equivalent of a 14 year supply. Yet somehow between 2010-2012, defying both logic and prudence entirely, the agency purchased 7,437 more of those same parts—at significantly higher cost than those already gathering dust on warehouse shelves—at a time when demand had been cut in half.

As of September 2012, the DLA and military had already ordered $733 million in duplicates of existing supernumerary supplies, which was a 21% increase from the $609 million it spent on the same asinine duplication the previous year. All this stuff makes a comprehensive inventory impossible, and a worker in the DLA’s largest warehouse explained there is no system for verifying that items are stored correctly or even to track or estimate how much is lost to employee theft.

These examples only touch on the enormity of the Pentagon’s mystical record-keeping, poor decision-making, and insanely wasteful spending problems. Taken in another context, they represent an acute criticism of priorities.

As of 2013, there were 45.3 million people, including 14.7 million children, living in poverty in the US—14.5% of the population, which is the largest number in the 52 years such statistics have been kept. But instead of focusing sharp criticism on the causes for such an outrageous number, politicians target “wasteful” spending by food stamp recipients by passing into law prohibitions for purchasing items like steak. But if members of Congress find a steak wasteful, what about 22,437 superfluous Humvee front ends?

Hey, government: you’re doing it wrong.

Study Ranks States by Level of Corruption. The More Corrupt the State, The More Police & Prisons

By TheRundownLive

Thumbnail for 202298

Justin Gardner | FreeThoughtProject

As state lawmakers attempt to balance wasteful budgets, perhaps the first issue they should tackle is corruption in their own ranks. A pioneering study shows that public officials’ corruption costs taxpayers tens of billions of dollars a year. It also shows that law enforcement and prisons get a major boost in more corrupt states.

“The study demonstrates that corruption goes hand-in-hand with excessive state spending. In the 10 most corrupt states, simply reducing corruption to an average level would lower annual state spending by $1,308 per person — or 5.2 percent of state expenditures.”

Unsurprisingly, the South leads the pack in the most corrupt states, with Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky and Florida appearing in the top ten. Alaska (Bridge to Nowhere, anyone?) shares the spotlight.

The northwest states of Oregon and Washington top the list of least corrupt states.

state's average corruption ranking

Researchers created a “corruption index” by examining more than 25,000 convictions spanning 32 years for violations of federal anti-corruption laws, then comparing this to the number of state employees.

Not only does corruption cost the citizenry in terms of dollars; it influences the level of oppression and the availability of health and education.

More corrupt states spent more on law enforcement and on prisons, reflecting both the legal costs of corruption and the fact that prison construction and operation are potentially lucrative.
More corrupt states spent less on education at all levels, public welfare, health and hospitals, areas that offer fewer opportunities for public corruption.

corrupt by state

More corrupt states also tended to use a shady tactic of deficit financing to conceal spending, and spent more on large construction and highway projects which are rife with bribes and extortion.

If states can engage in such abuse of our money and trust, what goes on at the federal level? Two years ago, we learned of a bribery and bid-rigging scheme worth over $30 million in the Washington , DC area. 15 federal employees and contractors were arrested, before they could engage in a billion dollar ripoff.

This was only one of over 1,200 federal indictments and “informations” against corrupt officials occurring that year.

And what corruption goes on in the shrouded realm of the Pentagon? The amount of fraud and waste have proven to be of epic proportions, but this is only monetary. War crimes cover-ups, invasions of countries based on false pretenses, ignoring rampant sexual assault—these things are far more insidious. They are corruptions of human rights and decency.

Town Takes Matters into its Own Hands to Stop Oil Company from Fracking

By The Rundown Live

frackingtexasprotest

Claire Bernish | ANTIMEDIA

Since the state government has chosen the side if Big Oil, residents of Denton, TX have taken it upon themselves to stop fracking in their community.

Denton, Texas might not ring a bell immediately, but this city of just over 100,000, located north of Dallas, actually has a bit of an international reputation for being the “little city that could.” In taking a stand against overwhelming odds in a state that lives and breathes the oil and gas industry, Denton managed to ban all fracking—but their hard-fought victory was short-lived.

Governor Greg Abbott sided with industry over the health, welfare, and will of the people by scrambling to pass legislation that bans fracking bans. Denton, to him, had gone too far.

So what happened next? Almost immediately, Vantage Energy decided, in an act of hubris, to prove the industry’s clout and resume fracking in Denton last Monday.

But the people have had enough of fracking and having their legitimate concerns ignored—and a few decided to act on one of the only avenues now available—they blocked the entrance to the drilling site.

University of North Texas environmental philosophy professor and president of the Denton Drilling Awareness Group (DAG), Adam Briggle, whose classes have been interwoven with lessons on the value of civil disobedience for years, put that philosophy to the test. Together with DAG vice president Tara Hunter and resident Nicole Chochrek, an agreement was made ahead of the sit-in that they would stay in place, no matter what—even if they had to be carted away in handcuffs—because fracking, to them and to the people of Denton, represents money and industry over the common good. What happened when they were arrested?

In a show of lamentably uncommon good faith, the police officer who arrested Briggle shook his hand before placing him in cuffs. “Before he arrested me he wanted to shake my hand in gratitude,” said Briggle. The beauty of a city bound by a wholly unwelcome state law became even more clear as the three were released from jail. They did not have to post bail—and never will—as long as they show up for their day in court.

Inspired by the first group’s efforts to prevent drilling, Elida Tamez followed suit the next day, saying, “It takes a hell of a lot to get me off my couch but this did. It was just too much, so I decided to stand there over the cattle guard and not let any trucks in.” And then other activists joined her. And then more, until she and two others were hauled off to jail.

Protester Jonathan Adams explained the reason for the blockade to a local NBC affiliate: “We feel like this company and several other companies have been breaking the law for a very long time in Denton. Whether it’s been dumping chemicals into creeks or violating setbacks that were in place, and we feel like the police have just not enforced that here. At most they receive a slap on the wrist, and when people are here protecting their community stopping a truck from going to work, and continuing this devastating process known as fracking. We just see it as people taking justice into their own hands.”

But they experienced the same cordial gratitude the first arrestees had, so Tamez developed a theory: “I think that they’re decent human beings, and I also think that they must be aware that they are essentially enforcing trespassing laws against citizens who are trying to enforce a ban that was passed by us, so I think that they might recognize the double standard here.”

Several states have now banned fracking bans in a crude display, attempting to hamper people’s already limited resources for taking a stand against fracking — a practice that only the industry itself seems to want.

As Adams said, “The industry and the state have been working together to force fracking on this community. We don’t want it here.”

Bilderberg Group for Dummies: What is the Bilderberg Group?

By TheRundownLive

bilderberg1954

Kristan T. Harris | The Rundown Live

Since 1954 the most influential people in the world involved with politics, media, science, business, finance and military have congregated together at the annual Bilderberg Group meeting in secret.

We have gained insight about these meetings due to the release of the the “George McGhee Papers” by Georgetown University.

The first meeting was hosted by the Rockefeller family and the dutch royal crown in the luxurious hotel Bilderberg in Oosterbeck, Holland.

For one week leaders brainstormed how they could bring in world government including deceitful tactics such as the DELPHI tactic developed by the RAND corporation. The original meeting documents explain how this is to be implemented for more information view here, thanks to Georgetown University.

When the initial meeting was over attendees deemed it successful and decided to meet every year to further the “great plan” and named themselves the Bilderberg Group. Some people may refer to them as the Bilderbergers.

Since its conception about 130 or so handpicked representatives of the elite have gathered yearly in expensive hotels somewhere in the world arrogantly plotting the takeover of sovereign nations to fulfill their dream of one global government.

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”- David Rockefeller Bilderberg Group member.

Here is a list of some names that have attended these meetings in violation of the Logan Act. David Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, George Soros, Gerald Ford, Bill Gates, Rick Perry, Lloyd Bensten, Helmut Kohl, Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, Prince Juan Carlos, Donald Rumsfeld, Dan Quayle, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, Katherine Graham, Alice Rivlin, George Stephanopoulos, Timothy Geithner, Peter Jennings, Paul Volcker, Robert Zoellick, H. J Heinz II, George Will, Lesley Stahl, Donald E. Graham, William F. Buckley Jr., and on and on.

The Media, until recently denied these meetings existed and where quick to label anyone who questioned the groups existence as a conspiracy theorist. That is because the term “conspiracy theory” is a thought-terminating cliche. This means that people who ordinarily have critical thinking skills will shut down losing their ability to recognize logical fallacies or to register cognitive dissonance. A buzz word to sum up an analysis or make a decision for you.

One must ask why the WTO and G8 meetings are carried on the front page of every newspaper with thousands of journalists in attendance, while not a single one covers the Bilderberg meetings attended by the most influential people in the world.

The Bilderberg group, just like the Council of Foreign Relations and Trilateral commission, was formed in secrecy in order to further the globalization of the planet. The organization was hidden by top media personal who attended these meeting as the foundation of the power structure already had its roots in Council of Foreign Relations.

One reason for the meetings secrecy could be that it is a clear violation of the Logan Act, put forth by president John Adams, The Act was passed following George Logan‘s unauthorized negotiations with France in 1798, and was signed into law by President John Adams on January 30, 1799. The Act was last amended in 1994, and a violation of the Logan Act is a felony.

The other maybe the fact that the majority of the populace may not look positively on a world governing agency.

“I don’t think it’s true to say that we want to keep it [Bilderberg] out [of the public consciousness], we never wanted to get it in. We don’t encourage people to mention it in the mainstream press because we don’t encourage idle speculation about what we do. …… We forbid individual attendees from giving press meetings at our conferences, and we do that not because we’re secrecy mad, but because we want to control the politicians who come.” Martin Taylor – Secretary General, Bilderberg – interviewed by Jon Ronson for the UK Channel 4 TV program ‘Secret Rulers of the World’
