World Just Witnessed A Stunning Watershed Moment In History

World Just Witnessed A Stunning Watershed Moment In History | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

Today one of the top economists in the world told King World News the world has just witnessed, “a watershed moment in history.”  This is without a doubt one of the most important interviews KWN has ever done with Michael Pento.  Below is what Pento, who heads Pento Portfolio Strategies, had to say in this remarkable and timely interview.

 

This is from the interview at CNBC:  “Does the Fed have a limit to its balance sheet?  Charlie, is there a limit?  You are headed towards $4 trillion.  Could it be $5 trillion?  Could it be $12 trillion?  What limits the size of the Fed’s balance sheet?”  And here is the answer from the Fed President Charles Evans, who happens to be simpatico with Janet Yellen and Ben Bernanke:  

 

“Well, I think the Fed needs to do whatever is necessary to help meet our dual mandate objections.  I don’t really think about it as far as limits are concerned because I think there is a tremendous amount of capacity.  We can go as long as necessary.” ...

The man who lives without money

The man who lives without money | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

 

Mark Boyle gave up using cash over a year ago and loves his new lifestyle.

 

Mark Boyle, 31, gave up using money in November 2008.

 

He lives in a caravan that he got from Freecycle (uk.freecycle.org), which is parked at an organic farm near Bristol, where Boyle volunteers three days a week.

 

He grows his own food, has a wood-burning stove and produces electricity from a solar panel (it cost £360 before the experiment started).

 

He has a mobile phone for incoming calls only and a solar-powered laptop...

Study: Food Stamps Most Rapidly Growing Welfare Program

Study: Food Stamps Most Rapidly Growing Welfare Program | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

Food stamps are the most inefficient, vastly expanding social welfare program in the country, according to a new study. Forty-seven million people participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, and costs have increased over 358 percent since 2000. The increase in recent years cannot be attributed to the economic recession, according to Michael Tanner, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, but lax eligibility requirements and an aggressive campaign by governments to boost their rolls. “This program has expanded rapidly over the last decade in a way that is not justified by the recession that we went through,” Tanner said. “There’s very little bang for all this increased buck.” Tanner’s report, “SNAP Failure: The Food Stamp Program Needs Reform,” finds that in 2000 the cost of the food stamp program was just $17 billion. It has risen in cost to $78 billion today. Spending on advertising and outreach for food stamps by federal and state governments has also increased, now amounting to $41.3 million a year. States like Florida have hired “food stamp recruiters,” who have a quota of signing up 150 new recipients each month. Rhode Island hosts “SNAP-themed bingo games,” and the USDA tells its field offices to throw parties to get more people on their rolls. Despite the additional spending, the USDA claims 18 million Americans are still “food insecure.” Tanner notes the program is more successful in breeding dependence on government, which was apparent last weekend when the EBT system shutdown in several states, resulting in chaos. “The left is correct when they talk about how small food stamp benefits are, about an average of $4.50 a day,” Tanner said. “And yet we’re told that people can’t survive without them.” “There’s something wrong in our society when people can’t survive without getting five bucks from the government,” he said. Food stamps have become the second most costly means-tested program behind Medicaid, and its expansion is credited to both Republicans and Democrats. Tanner traces the modern food stamp program back to President Lyndon B. Johnson, who signed the Food Stamp Act of 1964. Not until the presidency of George W. Bush, however, did the program increase dramatically, and the pace has only accelerated under President Barack Obama.

RNAi Therapeutics: Tekmira Expands Biodefense Efforts to Cover Both Ebola and Marburg Virus

RNAi Therapeutics: Tekmira Expands Biodefense Efforts to Cover Both Ebola and Marburg Virus | ApocalypseSurvival | Scoop.it

Following the successes with its Ebola biodefense program, Tekmira has started to present increasingly promising data for treating a related filovirus, the Marburg virus.  With 100% survival rates in non-human primate models and new RNAi triggers that should cover a broad spectrum of strains and possibly related viruses, the company is well positioned to also take away the Marburg indication from competitor Sarepta which in turn has become preoccupied with its exon-skipping drug candidate for DMD.  

 

Tekmira and their collaborators from the UTMB in Galveston, Texas, reported the successful treatment of guinea pigs infected with a number of different strains of the Marburg virus.  Because the development of treatments for rapidly mutating viruses and viruses with a multitude of divergent strains is hampered by sequence diversity, a broader strain coverage was achieved, like in Tekmira’s Ebola approach or in Arrowhead’s chronic HepB strategy (ARC520), through the concurrent use of two siRNAs in a single formulation.

 

Chief Scientific Officer of the company, Ian MacLachlan, presented gold standard non-human primate data of SNALP RNAi Therapeutics for Marburg virus at the ongoing OligoDIA regulator-industry conference.  Accordingly, Tekmira’s newer LNP formulations (‘SNALP-G’) were shown to fully protect monkeys from death due to Marburg infection when given at 0.5mg/kg (=the magic safety threshold for SNALP). As an important comparison, Sarepta last year reported ‘83% to 100%’ protection rates in comparable models when treatment was initiated up to 96 hours after infections with its newer PMOplus morpholino chemistry.   It is therefore of interest to test the impact of further delaying treatment with SNALPs.

 

RNAi therapeutics have the potential to treat a broad number of human diseases by "silencing" disease causing genes. The discoverers of RNAi, a gene silencing mechanism used by all cells, were awarded the 2006 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine. RNAi therapeutics, such as "siRNAs," require delivery technology to be effective systemically. Tekmira believes its LNP technology represents the most widely adopted delivery technology for the systemic delivery of RNAi therapeutics. Tekmira's LNP platform is being utilized in multiple clinical trials by both Tekmira and its partners. Tekmira's LNP technology (formerly referred to as stable nucleic acid-lipid particles or SNALP) encapsulates siRNAs with high efficiency in uniform lipid nanoparticles that are effective in delivering RNAi therapeutics to disease sites in numerous preclinical models. Tekmira's LNP formulations are manufactured by a proprietary method which is robust, scalable and highly reproducible, and LNP-based products have been reviewed by multiple FDA divisions for use in clinical trials. LNP formulations comprise several lipid components that can be adjusted to suit the specific application.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, October 16, 2013 8:32 PM

Detroit is the largest city to declare bankruptcy and more importantly the first major American city to essentially fail as a major metropolitan area.  Sections of the city are reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic bestselling novel:  80,000 buildings stand empty, 40% of the streetlights don’t work, and it routinely takes police one hour to respond to a 911 call.


Tags: urban, economic, industry, Detroit

Gregory S Sankey Jr.'s curator insight, November 19, 2013 12:21 PM

The Detroit "Renaissance"  is an interesting one to say the least. There is an obvious opportunity to lay the foundations for something new and bold after clearing the rubble that has become detroit. But who is going to be displaced once the rubble's cleared and the trendy cafes, art studios, and co-ops are erected? Who amongst the poor and already displaced will be held up high, encouraged, and supported to help create this new Detroit? Cutting costs from health care and pensions, from those who already live in this city and are struggling, doesn't sound particularly productive. Especially after referencing having posession of extremely valuable art pieces that could be sold off. This article really sheds a light on the pro's and con's that are associated in capital investment in a bankrupt and wartorn American city.

I don't think that the poor and hungry care about paint on a canvas. They need access to opportunity and the resources to seize it.
