Too big to jail - World Socialist Web Site #banksters #corporations | News in english | Scoop.it
At a Senate Judiciary Committee last week, US Attorney General Eric Holder declared that major financial institutions engaged in criminal activity are too big to prosecute.
Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, US Attorney General Eric Holder made an extraordinary admission.

Responding to questioning from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley, who noted that there had been no major prosecutions of financial institutions or executives by the Obama administration, Holder said: “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them, when we are hit with indications that if we do prosecute—if we do bring a criminal charge—it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy…”

Benjamin Netanyahu’s children attacked an Arab cleaning man -Gideon Levy  #israel

Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

The fruits of Netanyahu's policies are now on parade; The recent wave of attacks on Arabs are directly related to the devastating impact of his tenure.

By Gideon Levy 

March 10, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - "Haaretz" - Benjamin Netanyahu’s children attacked an Arab cleaning man on the seaside promenade in Tel Aviv and caused him serious injuries. They attacked an Arab waiter in a Tel Aviv restaurant with chairs and their fists. They attacked an Arab from Upper Nazareth at the shore of Lake Kinneret because they heard him speaking Arabic. Netanyahu’s children waved hate-filled signs against Muslim players of the Beitar Jerusalem soccer team and set fire to its clubhouse. Netanyahu’s children attacked an Arab woman on a Jerusalem light rail train just because she was an Arab.

All these events took place in Israel within a few days. The attackers were of course not the prime minister’s biological children, but they all were the creation of his spirit, students of his views and pupils of his government’s policies. These Israeli skinheads are the fruits of the nationalistic and racist atmosphere that has grown greatly in recent years, the Netanyahu years.

Such a streak of anti-Arab violence is not just a coincidence of course. So many of these kind of violent acts in such a short time never happened here before. Their source is planted deep within the Israeli experience that Likud-led governments have acted to nurture. A Jewish child grows up in Israel with the feeling he is a member of the chosen people, one who is allowed to do almost anything. He learns that only his people have rights to this land. This child knows his country must be Jewish, and only Jewish.

During the Netanyahu years the child grew up with a feeling of continual danger, usually exaggerated and hollow. He hears all day long of the dangers lying in wait for him, all at the hands of Arabs and Muslims. He learns he is the member of a people who are always the greatest victims, there are no other victims. There are those who repeat for him that the Arabs are not people like he is, it is doubtful whether they are human beings at all; just suspicious objects, terrorists. They all want to throw him into the sea, stab him, plant a bomb, shoot a Qassam rocket at him or blow themselves up next to him. The child learns that Israel’s Arab citizens are a cancer, a stab in the back of the nation and a fifth column; and it is necessary to strip them of all their remnants of rights. He learns that Israel “gives” the Arabs too much

World's first GM babies born

The world's first genetically-modified humans have been created, it was revealed last night. Thirty healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States
Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

The world's first geneticallymodified humans have been created, it was revealed last night.

The disclosure that 30 healthy babies were born after a series of experiments in the United States provoked another furious debate about ethics.

So far, two of the babies have been tested and have been found to contain genes from three 'parents'.

Fifteen of the children were born in the past three years as a result of one experimental programme at the Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science of St Barnabas in New Jersey.

The babies were born to women who had problems conceiving. Extra genes from a female donor were inserted into their eggs before they were fertilised in an attempt to enable them to conceive.

Genetic fingerprint tests on two one-year- old children confirm that they have inherited DNA from three adults --two women and one man.

The fact that the children have inherited the extra genes and incorporated them into their 'germline' means that they will, in turn, be able to pass them on to their own offspring.

Altering the human germline - in effect tinkering with the very make-up of our species - is a technique shunned by the vast majority of the world's scientists.

Geneticists fear that one day this method could be used to create new races of humans with extra, desired characteristics such as strength or high intelligence.

Writing in the journal Human Reproduction, the researchers, led by fertility pioneer Professor Jacques Cohen, say that this 'is the first case of human germline genetic modification resulting in normal healthy children'.

Some experts severely criticised the experiments. Lord Winston, of the Hammersmith Hospital in West London, told the BBC yesterday: 'Regarding the treat-ment of the infertile, there is no evidence that this technique is worth doing . . . I am very surprised that it was even carried out at this stage. It would certainly not be allowed in Britain.'

Fryeburg #Water Seeks Long-Term Contract with #Nestle

Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

Fraîches nouvelles de la petite ville de Fryeburg (Maine, USA) qui continue sa lutte contre Nestlé qui lui pompe son eau à très bas prix

L'eau est Nestlé, son pari d'avenir .. regardez ce documentaire, ou l'on parle aussi de Fryeburg, "Nestlé et le business de l'eau" disponible ici : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWowI5r083I

03/08/2013 11:33 AM ET  

Fryeburg Water, a privately-owned utility, wants to extend the contract to as long as 45 years - an initial 25 years, with four five-year extensions.

 


A proposal by Fryeburg Water Company to extend its contract with Nestle Waters to provide water for Poland Spring, drew supporters and opponents to a public hearing last night in the western Maine town.

Fryeburg Water, a privately-owned utility, wants to extend the contract to as long as 45 years - an initial 25 years, with four five-year extensions.  The agreement would lock in payments and rules that govern Nestle's withdrawls of water for Poland Spring.  

Supporter Kimberly Clark argued that it's important for Poland Spring to have access to as much water as it needs to meet demand - and, sometimes, emergency demand.

"The very first product asked for in a natural or man-made disaster is potable bottled water - it's critically important," Clark told members of the Maine Public Utilities Commission, which held the hearing. "In my opinion, it's a product that's vital to the national security of our country."

She disagreed with the view of some opponents that the deal is driven by greed. "There's another kind of greed and that's the greed of hoarding, that's the greed of saying that, 'Well I'm going to keep this from you.  I'm going to keep this in case I run out.  I'm not going to share what I have of value with other people in the country,'" Clark said.

Debbie Lennon spoke in opposition to the agreement.  "It's fortune telling, and I'm not sure I'm willing to put my quarter into the fortune-telling machine of Nestle," she said.

Also speaking in opposition was Deborah Walters.  She said the only beneficiaries of the agreement would be Freyburg Water Company, its stockholders and Nestle. "This is not just a simple business agreement," Walters said. "It is a nightmare for the town of Fryeburg and surrounding towns."

PUC Chair Thomas Welch says the commission will make the final decision on the proposal, based on whether it's the interest of ratepayers.

New York Times describes 2002 US-backed coup against Hugo Chavez as “unwise” - World Socialist Web Site | News in english | Scoop.it
The Times itself had enthusiastically endorsed the military overthrow of Venezuela’s elected president.
Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

In an editorial published Thursday, the New York Times provided a somewhat measured assessment of the career of Venezuela’s recently deceased president, Hugo Chavez, while rooting its attitude firmly in US imperialist interests.

“Venezuela’s future matters to Americans because its oil wealth makes it a major political and economic force in Latin America, and it supplies around 10 percent of the oil imported by the United States,” the Times declared. The primary concern of the Times, like that within US ruling circles as a whole, is whether Chavez’s death will facilitate more lucrative exploitation of Venezuela’s petroleum r

Gilad Atzmon: Why Israeli Apartheid is Worse Than South Africa's Version

Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:
Is Palestinian Solidarity an Occupied Zone?

By Gilad Atzmon

March 09, 2013 "Information Clearing House" - "Counterpunch" - -Once involved with Palestinian Solidarity you have to accept that Jews are special and so is their suffering; Jews are like no other people, their Holocaust is like no other genocide and anti Semitism, is the most vile form of racism the world has ever known and so on and so forth.

But when it comes to the Palestinians, the exact opposite is the case. For some reason we are expected to believe that the Palestinians are not special at all -  they are just like everyone else. Palestinians have not been subject to a unique, racist, nationalist and expansionist Jewish nationalist movement, instead, we must all agree that, just like the Indians and the Africans, the Palestinian ordeal results from run-of-the-mill 19th century colonialism – just more of the same old boring Apartheid.

So, Jews, Zionists and Israelis are exceptional, like no one else, while Palestinians are always somehow, ordinary, always part of some greater political narrative, always just like everyone else. Their suffering is never due to the particularity of Jewish nationalism, or Jewish racism, or even AIPAC dominating USA foreign policy no, the Palestinian is always a victim of a dull, banal dynamic – general, abstract and totally lacking in particularity.

This raises some serious questions.

Can you think of any other liberation or solidarity movement that prides itself in being boring, ordinary and dull? Can you think of any other solidarity movement that downgrades its subject into just one more meaningless exhibit in a museum of materialist historical happenings? I don’t think so! Did the black South Africans see themselves as being like everyone else? Did Martin Luther King believe his brothers and sisters to be inherently undistinguishable?

I don’t think so. S

Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary says police failed to investigate complaints of sexual assault and dismissed victims

Un pédophile célèbre et médiatique en Anglettere qui a pu ainsi sévir pendant 5 décades en toute impunité ..  Pourquoi ? Est-ce le seul ? Et en France, et en Suisse, et ailleurs ? 

 

"

Numerous police failings left Jimmy Savile free to sexually abuse hundreds of young people over five decades – when he could have been stopped in the 1960s, according to a highly critical report by Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC).

The watchdog's inquiry into police handling of Savile revealed that the disgraced DJ, who died in October 2011, could have been stopped as early as 1964 but police mishandled evidence and dismissed victims.

In a 61-page report to the home secretary, Theresa May, HMIC raised fresh concerns about information sharing in the police and warned that officers could fail to prevent a Savile-like scandal happening again.

The inspectorate described a "cultural mistrust" of evidence from children, warning that procedures adopted by various agencies over many years had left vulnerable young people unprotected by the criminal justice system.

"The findings in this report are of deep concern, and clearly there were mistakes..."

Why Do People Commit To Behavior Which Consistently Lacks Moral or Ethical Principles

Call it what you like…thirst for control, money, power, greed, lust or simply a lack of conscience. Does good behavior lead to more good behavior and by the same token does bad behavior lead to more of the bad? The answer depends on our ethical mindset, according to new research published in Psychological Science.

(From the article): Making moral judgments requires at least two processes — a logical assessment of the intention, and an emotional reaction to it. When rules are established, violation of those rules can often lead to the wrong assessments leading to negative emotions.

Nestle's Stomach-Churning Horsemeat Problem

The Motley Fool - The recent horsemeat scandal at Nestle is just one example of the pain investors have suffered through quality control. Try this recipe for your investing safety.
Juan Carlos Hernandez's insight:

Nestle's Stomach-Churning Horsemeat Problem:http://t.co/2x8huwwBOK via @themotleyfool


"

All the money that consumer goods companies spend on advertising to build their brands can be made meaningless when a quality control issue breaks in the news. Especially now, in our world of unwieldy Internet media and a consumer preference toward moral and upstanding companies. This is especially so in the food industry, whose products we put into our bodies, and whose products typically have relatively smaller profit margins that can be easily affected by a small drop in sales.

As investors, what can we look for to prevent being stung by something like the 40% weekly drop in British frozen beef sales after a study found it contained a higher-than-typical amount of horsemeat?

Safety and brand
To evaluate the risk of scandal at food companies, both the cost to the brand and the safety repercussions need to be studied. For example, in 2007, ConAgra  (NYSE: CAG  ) recalled its Peter Pan peanut butter because of salmonella contamination. It spent $78 million fixing the issue of $1 billion in contaminated p.."
