Am citit si mi-a placut: Carnetul de Vaccinari – pasaport pentru educatie?

In Romania nu exista la ora actuala nici o lege privind obligativitatea vaccinarii si abuzurile pot fi sanctionate. Legea 649/2001 nu se refera la obligativitatea de a fi vaccinat, ci la obligatia ca medicul sa vaccineze la cererea pacientului, dupa ce l-a informat corect cu privire la actul medical in sine. In lege se vorbeste si despre schema de vaccinare recomandata de Ministerul Sanatatii, nicidecum de schema obligatorie. Insusirea in mod automat si impamantenirea termenului“obligatoriu” este ceea ce eu obisnuiesc sa numesc “folclor” si se datoreaza lipsei de instruire sau orbirii civice despre care am mai amintit. Orbire care ne face sa luam in mod automat drept bun si adevarat tot ce spune (mai ales de catre o autoritate in domeniu) fara sa verificam la sursa sau sa contestam. Continuarea

Vaccinarea anti-HPV si minciunile si riscurile despre care nu vorbeste nimeni -1

Deci avem interzicerea publicitatii pentru Gardasil in Franta, retragerea campaniei pentru Cervarix in Anglia ( caz rezolvat pe tacute) – in ambele cazuri pentru mesaje publicitare ce induc in eroare consumatorul, adica falsa promisiune ca respectivele vaccinuri previn cancerul de col. Mi-au scris cateva persoane sa-mi spuna ca al nostru minister s-a reapucat de vaccinarea anti-HPV. Am cautat cu rabdare, in ultimul timp nu am mai urmarit campaniile „minunatilor” alintati in diverse moduri de producatorii de medicamente. Iata noi informatii care sa va ajute sa decideti ce faceti legat de vaccinare. Continuarea

MINUNATA SANATATE A COPIILOR NEVACCINATI

Françoise Berthoud, MD [paediatrician]
Cu ceva timp in urma, in Aprilie 2009 mai exact, am fost invitata sa vorbesc la o conferinta despre vaccinare. Randul meu venea dupa ce vorbeau 2 dintre cei mai buni speaker-i pe care ii are Franta pe acest subiect , journalista Sylvie Simon and biologul Michel Georget. Ii mai ascultasem si cu alte ocazii si imi devenise absolut clar ca cel mai bine este sa stai cat mai departe posibil de vaccinuri. […].

Vaccinarea, encefalopatia si autismul

Siringa si ADN-ulIn cazul in care credeati variantele oficiale … de genul vaccinarea nu are nimic de a face cu autismul, iata ca problemele nu sunt deloc lamurite.

Intr-un review al studiilor publicate din 1943 si pana acum in PubMed  si Ovid Medline, H. Ratajczak autoarea review-ului spune asa:

 Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis following vaccination.

Traducere: cauzele documentate ale autismului includ mutatii sau disparitia / stergerea [unor fragmente de ADN], infectii virale si encefalita post vaccinare.

Evident, scepticii sunt pe pozitie desi realitatea este ca stiinta si oamenii de stiinta au fost de nenumarate ori fata in fata cu evidentele si nu au fost in stare sa vada dincolo de limitarile paradigmei in care inoata. Este o chestie interesanta si cu paradigmele astea; iti impun nu numai solutiile dar si modul de a pune problemele. Orice persoana pune problema altfel decat „da voie paradigma” este automat eretic. Thomas Kuhn ( cel care a definit pe larg  distinctia paradigma si efectele sale inclusiv in lumea stiintifica) mentiona adesea cazul descoperirii planetei Uranus. Ei bine, Uranus fusese observat de cel putin 17 ori de diferiti astronomi; toate astea se intamplau in perioada 1690 – 1782. Credinta preponderenta era ca luminile de pe cer sunt stele, dar observatiile legate de ceea ce mai tarziu a fost numit planeta Uranus nu aveau sens daca era considerata stea. Apoi Sir Herschel a venit cu o noua perceptie – „steaua”este o planeta pe orbita! Si totul a devenit clar!  La fel a fost si A. Wegener si teoria lui „ridicola”cu deriva continentelor si provenienta dintr-un singur continent, la fel a fost si cu super-conductorii de temperaturi ridicate sau laserele, la fel se intampla acum cu perceptia legata de efectele adverse ale vaccinarilor dar si cu perceptia legata de influenta mintii individuale si colective asupra modelarii realitatii, chiar daca studiile arata ca aceasta influenta exista si este clara, dincolo de orice dubiu probabilistic si chiar daca in rapoartele guvernelor ( de exemplu SUA in timpul administratiei Reagan) este clara aceasta influenta si mai mult, este considerata un pericol – „recunoasterea generala a gradului de interconectare a mintilor ar putea avea implicatii imense sociale si politice pentru aceasta natiune si pentru intreaga lume”. ( vezi cartea „The roots of consciousness” J. Mishlove 1993).

Evident ca pentru o persoana ca Dr. Brian Strom care este expert guvernamental pentru evaluarea sigurantei vaccinurilor, aceast review este lipsit de substanta, pentru ca este despre teorii iar stiinta este bazata pe fapte. Hmm…. dar faptele pornesc de la teorii si trebuie sa fie legate de teorii, altfel sunt numite fenomene disparate si se cauta in disperare teoriile care sa stea la baza faptelor. Ceea ce mai spune Dr. Storm este ca opinia medicala prevalenta la acest moment este ca efectele secundare a vaccinurilor pot fi „legate” stiintific de encefalopatie dar nu de autism. Desi cele doua diagnostice sunt extrem de legate. Interesant de citit este acest raport ( NU este un studiu). In SUA orice avocat ce a lucrat la cazuri ce implica solicitarea compensarilor pentru efectele adverse cauzate de vaccinare stie ca, daca vrei sa obtii banii, o conditie esentiala este sa nu mentionezi cuvantul autism ci encefalopatie. Si asa obtii compensarile. Paralelismul intre cele doua diagnostice  considerate diferite de catre medicina alopata dogmatica este extrem de interesant.

In lucrarea Helenei Ratajczak este foarte interesant faptul ca autoarea se uita la un factor mai putin discutat si anume continutul de ADn uman al vaccinurilor. Da, vaccinurile contin ADN uman, Ratajczak mentioneaza 23 de vaccinuri. Ea discuta despre cresterea incidentei autismului, crestere ce corespunde cu prezenta ADN-ului uman in vaccinul MMR ( ROR ) si sugereaza ca acest factor joaca un rol important.  Autoarea mentioneaza ca o crestere a autismului s-a inregistrat in 1995 cand vaccinul impotriva varicelei a fost produs folosing tesuturi provenind de la fetusi[i umani].  Ar putea ca acest ADN uman sa cauzeze problemele neurologice? Ratajczak explica faptul ca prezenta ADN-ului uman in vaccin determina aparitia unei reactii din partea corpului gazda ce dezvolta anticorpi impotriva proteinelor respective. Unde se gasesc aceste proteine in mod express? In creier. Deci corpul  ajunge sa „omoare celulele creierului” si exista o continua inflamatie a creierului. Evident, raspunsul Dr. Storm este ca el nu stie ca ADN-ul uman sa provoace autism ( in sensul de dovada stiintifica – nu ca s-ar fi cautat :))  ) iar Ratajczak i-a replicat ca nimeni nu a dovedit contrariul, deci dezbaterea stiintifica este inca deschisa.

Un numar de cercetatori independenti au declarat ca au fost subiectul unor campanii orchestrate pentru a-i discredita atunci cand cercetarile lor au aratat probleme legate de siguranta vaccinurilor, mai ales daca erau legat de subiectul numit autism. Ratajczak a fost intrebata cum de cerceteaza un subiect atat de controversat iar ea a raspuns ca ani de zile a lucrat pentru industria farmaceutica si a avut restrictii legate de ceea ce avea voie sa publice. „Acum sunt la pensie” a declarat catre CBS , „pot sa scriu ce vreau [liber]”

Avand in vedere parerea oficialilor guvernamentali ca teoriile care leaga vaccinurile de autism ar trebui complet respinse iar review-ul publicat de Ratajczak arata exact pe dos, jurnalistii au cerut si parerea CDC-ului . Oficialii de la CDC au spus ca „un review complex realizat de CDC … ar lua ceva timp” si au pus la dispozitie link-urile ce sunt la sfarsitul articolului.

Ratajczak nu adreseaza si alte probleme legate de vaccinare, de exemplu suprapunerile intre proteinele provenite de la virus si cele umane, suprapuneri ce arata clar ca orice copil vaccinat este un candidat 100% pentru o boala autoimuna, dar chiar si asa review-ul este interesant.

Mai jos este articolul aparut pe CBSNews si preluat de Sign of The Times (SOTT)  .

For all those who’ve declared the autism-vaccine debate over – a new scientific review begs to differ. It considers a host of peer-reviewed, published theories that show possible connections between vaccines and autism.

The article in the Journal of Immunotoxicology is entitled Theoretical aspects of autism: Causes–A review. The author is Helen Ratajczak, surprisingly herself a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal; but all of them.

Ratajczak’s article states, in part, that „Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination [emphasis added]. Therefore, autism is the result of genetic defects and/or inflammation of the brain.”

The article goes on to discuss many potential vaccine-related culprits, including the increasing number of vaccines given in a short period of time. „What I have published is highly concentrated on hypersensitivity, Ratajczak told us in an interview, „the body’s immune system being thrown out of balance.”

University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. Brian Strom, who has served on Institute of Medicine panels advising the government on vaccine safety says the prevailing medical opinion is that vaccines are scientifically linked to encephalopathy (brain damage), but not scientifically linked to autism. As for Ratajczak’s review, he told us he doesn’t find it remarkable. „This is a review of theories. Science is based on facts. To draw conclusions on effects of an exposure on people, you need data on people. The data on people do not support that there is a relationship. As such, any speculation about an explanation for a (non-existing) relationship is irrelevant.”

Ratajczak also looks at a factor that hasn’t been widely discussed: human DNA contained in vaccines. That’s right, human DNA. Ratajczak reports that about the same time vaccine makers took most thimerosal out of most vaccines (with the exception of flu shots which still widely contain thimerosal), they began making some vaccines using human tissue. Ratajczak says human tissue is currently used in 23 vaccines. She discusses the increase in autism incidences corresponding with the introduction of human DNA to MMR vaccine, and suggests the two could be linked. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in 1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue.

Why could human DNA potentially cause brain damage? The way Ratajczak explained it to me: „Because it’s human DNA and recipients are humans, there’s homologous recombinaltion tiniker. That DNA is incorporated into the host DNA. Now it’s changed, altered self and body kills it. Where is this most expressed? The neurons of the brain. Now you have body killing the brain cells and it’s an ongoing inflammation. It doesn’t stop, it continues through the life of that individual.”

Dr. Strom said he was unaware that human DNA was contained in vaccines but told us, „It does not matter…Even if human DNA were then found in vaccines, it does not mean that they cause autism.” Ratajczak agrees that nobody has proven DNA causes autism; but argues nobody has shown the opposite, and scientifically, the case is still open.

A number of independent scientists have said they’ve been subjected to orchestrated campaigns to discredit them when their research exposed vaccine safety issues, especially if it veered into the topic of autism. We asked Ratajczak how she came to research the controversial topic. She told us that for years while working in the pharmaceutical industry, she was restricted as to what she was allowed to publish. „I’m retired now,” she told CBS News. „I can write what I want.”

We wanted to see if the CDC wished to challenge Ratajczak’s review, since many government officials and scientists have implied that theories linking vaccines to autism have been disproven, and Ratajczak states that research shows otherwise. CDC officials told us that „comprehensive review by CDC…would take quite a bit of time.” In the meantime, CDC provided these links:

Societatea Romana de Homeopatie – ref campanie 10:23

Societatea Romana de Homeopatie, alaturi de celelalte asociatii ale medicilor homeopati din Romania, a luat nota, in urma unui articol aparut in ziarul Capital pe 19 ianuarie, de faptul ca , in Bucuresti, pe data de 5 februarie a.c., se anunta un protest al organizatiei Scepticilor din Romania si al Asociatiei Secularist –Umaniste ASUR, impotriva terapiei homeopate, prin ingerarea unor “sticle intregi” de medicamente homeopate.

In legatura cu acest eveniment, pozitia noastra pleaca de la urmatoarele constatari: Continuarea

Aberatii, aberatii – campania 1023

Am primit un email de la un cititor si in respectivul email era un link. Cel care duce aici: http://www.descopera.ro/dnews/7942827-protest-impotriva-preparatelor-homeopate-sambata-in-centrul-capitalei . Am vazut ca textul este si aici, aici, aici, aici si probabil prin N alte locuri.

Foarte pe scurt, este vorba despre o campanie pornita in Marea Britanie si care isi doreste sa convinga oamenii ca remediile homeopate sunt apa de ploaie, iar homeopatia pierdere de timp.  Iata cateva citate din articol:

Liliana Voicu, reprezentant ASUR, a declarat: „Acest eveniment are ca scop informarea corectă a publicului şi atragerea atenţiei asupra riscurilor la care se supun pacienţii ce apelează la preparatele homeopate în locul medicamentelor recunoscute de comunitatea ştiinţifică. Suntem deschişi dialogului cu cei care doresc să demonstreze contrariul, deşi homeopatia încă se bazează pe nişte reguli inventate în 1796, a căror eficacitate nu a fost niciodată dovedită„.

Andrei Bădilă, reprezentant Sceptici în România, a declarat: „În primul rând, trebuie să clarificăm faptul că homeopatia e doar apă, nu are nimic în comun că fitoterapia. În al doilea rând, oamenii trebuie să fie informaţi asupra riscurilor la care se expun atunci când aleg homeopatia în locul medicinei moderne. Homeopatia nu funcţionează, în timp ce medicina modernă are rezultate dovedite, pe care cercetătorii le perfecţionează constant”.

OK, fiecare este liber sa creada ce vrea, sa spuna ce vrea, dar de aici si pana la a indemna oamenii sa ia aiurea remedii homeopate este cale lunga.

– PENTRU INITIATORII acestei miscari SI ORGANIZATORI am o cerere personala: DACA aveti ..… si chiar credeti ca homeopatia este apa de ploaie, atunci luati asa: Psorinum, Syphillinum, Carcinosinum, Thuya, Phytolacca, Conium, Mercurius – remedii adevarate, dilutii de la 10M in sus, in cantitatile mentionate in articol, adica „sticle întregi de pilule homeopate”. De abia dupa ce le luati pe astea o sa va cred ca sunteti convinsi de ceea ce spuneti! Pana atunci nu!

– PENTRU PARTICIPANTI: DACA organizatorii si initiatorii NU sunt de acord sa inghita aceste remedii in cantitatile mentionate in comunicatele de presa, atunci nu-i credeti pur si simplu. INAINTE de a accepta sa luati vreun remediu homeopat “cu galeata” cititi descrierile ptr respectivul remediu in Materia Medica. Asta ca sa stiti ce anume va asteapta. ATENTIE MARE: cititi despre principiul homeopatiei si veti intelege ce se intampla atunci cand iei aiurea remediile.

Pentru cei care au de gand sa participe la aceasta demonstratie, ii sfatuiesc urmatoarele:

– sa citeasca ultimele lucrari ale lui Luc Montagnier – de altfel un Nobel-ist recent ( detalii aici montagnier.net/mon…ex.php/publications/ ). Descoperirile lui aduc o noua lumina legat de modul in care functioneaza homeopatia si arata de ce nu a fost posibil ca stiinta mainstream sa priceapa ce se intampla. O alta lucrare interesanta :  http://montagnier.net/montagnier/index.php/download_file/view/17/

– intr-unul dintre cele mai prestigioase jurnale stiintifice despre cercetarea in oncologie a fost publicat un studiu despre efectul anticancerigen a patru medicamente homeopate : Carcinosinumm Thuya, Phytolacca, Conium. Studiul a fost in vitro, pe doua linii celulare de adenocarcinom MCF-7 si MDA-MB-231. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20043074 Cititi sa vedeti efectele si ganditi-va la un tratament care nu te costa mai mult de 100 de lei si nu are efecte secundare. OK, big pharma mafia nu castiga nimic. Hmm….

– Un studiu mai nou dec 2010 : Extreme homeopathic dilutions retain starting materials: A nanoparticulate perspective (http://www.sciencedirect.com/ )

– Germania – homeopatia la copiii cu cancer http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2958565/

– http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19687192 – Interesant ca nu mai este accesibil studiul intreg, avea niste date extrem de interesante.

– multe alte link-uri pe aici http://knol.google.com/k/dr-nancy-malik-bhms/scientific-research-in-homeopathy/pocy7w49ru14/2#

Evident, nu este intamplator faptul ca aceasta campanie a pornit din UK. Acolo lupta impotriva homeopatiei este extrem de mare. Si nu pentru ca nu ar functiona; functioneaza si inca foarte bine. Ci pentru ca tratamentele alternative inseamna o piata foarte mare si companiile farmaceutice vor sa o inghita. Si asta-i tot si se rezuma doar la bani.

Din curiozitate m-am uitat pe site-ul 1023.ro si mi-am primit rasplata: am ras cu lacrimi! citat:

“…. iar aşa-numitele „legi ale homeopatiei” nu se potrivesc cu nimic din ceea ce ştim despre lumea care ne înconjoară. Cu o înţelegere de bază a chimiei se poate demonstra că tincturile homeopate nu sunt altceva decât apă. ”

mda .. poate cu ceea ce stiu ei, cei care au facut site-ul si campania. “cu o intelegere de baza a chimiei”.. Hahahaha … pai la capitolul homeopatie iti trebuie mai degraba fizica si nu newtoniana. Si da, homeopatia functioneaza, doar ca abia acum intelegem de ce si cum.

Faptul ca o substanta isi pastreaza proprietatile chiar si la dilutii in care “intelegerea de baza a chimiei” iti spune ca nu mai exista materie … este dovedita si de cercetarile lui Luis Rey legate de termoluminiscenta la dilutii foarte mari. Studiul il puteti vedea aicihttp://www.homeopathy.org/research/basic/Rey.pdf

Pentru cei curiosi in ale homeopatiei si de ce chimia de baza si fizica newtoniana nu prea pot sa explice functionarea homeopatiei, pot porni cercetarea cu un extras din prezentarea lui Luc Montagnier – Lindau 2010 montagnier.net/mon…wnload_file/view/17/

citat:

Ultra Low Frequency Electromagnetic Waves (ULF 500-3000 hertz) in certain dilutions of filtrates (100nm, 20 nm) from cultures of micro-organisms (virus, bacteria) or from the plasma of humans infected with the same agents. Same results are obtained from their extracted DNA.
– electromagnetic signals are only observed in some high water dilutions of the filtrates. For example, from 10-9 to 10-18 dilutions [..]

Citi apoi despre efectele acestor unde electromagnetice!

In alta ordine de idei, pentru cei care se iau dupa initiatorii si organizatorii campaniei, ar trebui sa existe o hartie ceva semnat inainte.

Pur si simplu, daca organizatorii si initiatorii nu iau aceste remedii in dilutii de peste 1M, „sticle întregi de pilule homeopate” … atunci vorbim doar de o mica demonstratie tipica de inducere in eroare a populatiei.

Aaaa.. si inca ceva: ceea ce inghit organizatorii si initiatorii sa fie intr-adevar remedii homeopate si nu imitatii. PLUS sa fie sub observatie minim 6 luni dupa aceasta aventura. Cei care observa sa fie un grup de medici, juma’ fara cunostinte de homeopatie si juma’ cu practica de homeopatie. Apoi se publica rezultatele. Abia dupa ce se publica rezultatele „experimentului” putem spune ca aceasta campanie a fost corecta. Pana atunci nu, e doar o gogorita.

Ma intreb daca organizatorii isi asuma vreo raspundere legate de eventualele efecte ce vor fi asupra celor ce se vor alatura experimentului. DACA organizatorii ar fi corecti, si-ar asuma public aceste eventuale efecte si ar asigura asistenta medicala cel putin 6 luni plus eventuale despagubiri.

have fun!

US physics professor: ‘Global warming is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life’

SURSA:  US physics professor: ‘Global warming is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life’

Harold Lewis is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Here is his letter of resignation to Curtis G. Callan Jr, Princeton University, President of the American Physical Society.

Anthony Watts describes it thus:

This is an important moment in science history. I would describe it as a letter on the scale of Martin Luther, nailing his 95 theses to the Wittenburg church door. It is worthy of repeating this letter in entirety on every blog that discusses science.

It’s so utterly damning that I’m going to run it in full without further comment. (H/T GWPF, Richard Brearley).

Dear Curt:
When I first joined the American Physical Society sixty-seven years ago it was much smaller, much gentler, and as yet uncorrupted by the money flood (a threat against which Dwight Eisenhower warned a half-century ago). Indeed, the choice of physics as a profession was then a guarantor of a life of poverty and abstinence—it was World War II that changed all that. The prospect of worldly gain drove few physicists. As recently as thirty-five years ago, when I chaired the first APS study of a contentious social/scientific issue, The Reactor Safety Study, though there were zealots aplenty on the outside there was no hint of inordinate pressure on us as physicists. We were therefore able to produce what I believe was and is an honest appraisal of the situation at that time. We were further enabled by the presence of an oversight committee consisting of Pief Panofsky, Vicki Weisskopf, and Hans Bethe, all towering physicists beyond reproach. I was proud of what we did in a charged atmosphere. In the end the oversight committee, in its report to the APS President, noted the complete independence in which we did the job, and predicted that the report would be attacked from both sides. What greater tribute could there be?

How different it is now. The giants no longer walk the earth, and the money flood has become the raison d’être of much physics research, the vital sustenance of much more, and it provides the support for untold numbers of professional jobs. For reasons that will soon become clear my former pride at being an APS Fellow all these years has been turned into shame, and I am forced, with no pleasure at all, to offer you my resignation from the Society.

It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion. I would almost make that revulsion a definition of the word scientist.

So what has the APS, as an organization, done in the face of this challenge? It has accepted the corruption as the norm, and gone along with it. For example:

1. About a year ago a few of us sent an e-mail on the subject to a fraction of the membership. APS ignored the issues, but the then President immediately launched a hostile investigation of where we got the e-mail addresses. In its better days, APS used to encourage discussion of important issues, and indeed the Constitution cites that as its principal purpose. No more. Everything that has been done in the last year has been designed to silence debate

2. The appallingly tendentious APS statement on Climate Change was apparently written in a hurry by a few people over lunch, and is certainly not representative of the talents of APS members as I have long known them. So a few of us petitioned the Council to reconsider it. One of the outstanding marks of (in)distinction in the Statement was the poison word incontrovertible, which describes few items in physics, certainly not this one. In response APS appointed a secret committee that never met, never troubled to speak to any skeptics, yet endorsed the Statement in its entirety. (They did admit that the tone was a bit strong, but amazingly kept the poison word incontrovertible to describe the evidence, a position supported by no one.) In the end, the Council kept the original statement, word for word, but approved a far longer “explanatory” screed, admitting that there were uncertainties, but brushing them aside to give blanket approval to the original. The original Statement, which still stands as the APS position, also contains what I consider pompous and asinine advice to all world governments, as if the APS were master of the universe. It is not, and I am embarrassed that our leaders seem to think it is. This is not fun and games, these are serious matters involving vast fractions of our national substance, and the reputation of the Society as a scientific society is at stake.

3. In the interim the ClimateGate scandal broke into the news, and the machinations of the principal alarmists were revealed to the world. It was a fraud on a scale I have never seen, and I lack the words to describe its enormity. Effect on the APS position: none. None at all. This is not science; other forces are at work.

4. So a few of us tried to bring science into the act (that is, after all, the alleged and historic purpose of APS), and collected the necessary 200+ signatures to bring to the Council a proposal for a Topical Group on Climate Science, thinking that open discussion of the scientific issues, in the best tradition of physics, would be beneficial to all, and also a contribution to the nation. I might note that it was not easy to collect the signatures, since you denied us the use of the APS membership list. We conformed in every way with the requirements of the APS Constitution, and described in great detail what we had in mind—simply to bring the subject into the open.<

5. To our amazement, Constitution be damned, you declined to accept our petition, but instead used your own control of the mailing list to run a poll on the members’ interest in a TG on Climate and the Environment. You did ask the members if they would sign a petition to form a TG on your yet-to-be-defined subject, but provided no petition, and got lots of affirmative responses. (If you had asked about sex you would have gotten more expressions of interest.) There was of course no such petition or proposal, and you have now dropped the Environment part, so the whole matter is moot. (Any lawyer will tell you that you cannot collect signatures on a vague petition, and then fill in whatever you like.) The entire purpose of this exercise was to avoid your constitutional responsibility to take our petition to the Council.

6. As of now you have formed still another secret and stacked committee to organize your own TG, simply ignoring our lawful petition.

APS management has gamed the problem from the beginning, to suppress serious conversation about the merits of the climate change claims. Do you wonder that I have lost confidence in the organization?

I do feel the need to add one note, and this is conjecture, since it is always risky to discuss other people’s motives. This scheming at APS HQ is so bizarre that there cannot be a simple explanation for it. Some have held that the physicists of today are not as smart as they used to be, but I don’t think that is an issue. I think it is the money, exactly what Eisenhower warned about a half-century ago. There are indeed trillions of dollars involved, to say nothing of the fame and glory (and frequent trips to exotic islands) that go with being a member of the club. Your own Physics Department (of which you are chairman) would lose millions a year if the global warming bubble burst. When Penn State absolved Mike Mann of wrongdoing, and the University of East Anglia did the same for Phil Jones, they cannot have been unaware of the financial penalty for doing otherwise. As the old saying goes, you don’t have to be a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing. Since I am no philosopher, I’m not going to explore at just which point enlightened self-interest crosses the line into corruption, but a careful reading of the ClimateGate releases makes it clear that this is not an academic question.

I want no part of it, so please accept my resignation. APS no longer represents me, but I hope we are still friends.

WikiLeaks – sau mica lectie despre cat de sclavi sunt cei ce ne reprezinta prin guverne si parlamente nationale

ceea ce este mai jos este pornit de la un mesaj pe care l-am postat aici plus diverse completari.

Idiot sau nu, Julian Asange este arestat pentru cu totul altceva decat WikiLeaks. Acuzatia nu este pentru viol ci pentru „sex by surprise” ,  pentru ca a cedat prezervativul. :)) , pentru ca cele doua femei si-au dat seama ca au fost ‘incurcate’ cu acelasi barbat  si-au propus si reusit sa starneasca scandal in mass media, desi la politie nu au facut nici o plangere ci au cerut un sfat! In acelasi articol apare intrebarea „de ce Interpolul a acceptat urmarirea lui Assange”, in conditiile in care „crima” de care se facea vinovat are o pedeapsa maxima de 715 dolari SUA ca amenda penala si nu se exista pedeapsa cu inchisoarea?  Cu atat mai mult cu cat la momentul respectiv, august 2010, Assange a dat declaratii la politia suedeza si permisiunea de a parasi Suedia a fost acordata de procuror, nu exista mandat de arestare in Suedia, iar JA s-a declarat disponibil pentru noi declaratii in UK, la ambasada Suediei in UK.

So why exactly is there a red notice lodged with Interpol over this? In the 188 countries that are part of Interpol, there are a bit over five thousand notices given each year for murderers, fraudsters, actual rapists, and other serious crimes. A crime that has a maximum penalty of USD715 and no potential jail time is a minor offense, and appears to be more a case of social ineptitude on both sides than anything else.

Why did Interpol accept it? There isn’t even an arrest warrant against Assange in Sweden. Apparently because Sweden’s director of public prosecutions, Marianne Ny claimed that Julian Assange had ‘fled’ to avoid answering questions. However  the facts that have not been disputed by the Swedish prosecutor or her staff is that Julian Assange has made statements to both the police and the prosecutors after staying in Sweden to do so, was given permission to leave the country by the prosecutors, and has offered to answer questions in Britian including at the Swedish embassy.

Partea cea mai interesanta este cea care apare in conditiile atasate la „notificarea rosie” trimisa Interpolului si anume: Julian Assange sa fie prins fara sa comunice, fara acces la avocati, vizitatori sau alti prizonieri

Of even more concern is the conditions attached to the red notice. When it was issued on November 18th it requested that Assange would be

…held incommunicado without access to lawyers, visitors or other prisoners..

Quite simply this looks like a politically motivated legal move to grab Julian Assange on a legal pretext, to shut him up, and to get moved to a country with a sympathetic prosecutor for extradition. I’d be extremely interested in finding out what communication has been going on between theconservative government in Sweden  before and after the election on September 19th with the government in the US.

But it is pretty clear that Marianne Ny is not acting for the law in Sweden – she is using the law and the Interpol process on the flimsiest pretext. It is clear that you can’t call this rape despite what the prosecutors in Sweden say and has been blasted all over the US media.

Unde am mai vazut asta? In legile UE care permit asa ceva! Pentru simplul motiv ca pentru UE si guvernele sale, articolul 11 din Declaratia Universala A Drepturilor Omului NU CONTEAZA! Pentru cine nu a priceput, repetam: drepturile omului nu sunt considerate importante in legislatia si procedurile UE.

Inchiderea WikiLeaks s-a facut prin presiuni  si NU legal! In SUA nici macar nu aveau cum sa o inchida, pentru ca sunt sub legea whistleblowers.

Problema care se pune cred ca tine de alt aspect: daca Wikileaks ca miscare este invinsa / inchisa / dispare, atunci inchiderea /filtrarea la sange a internetului este doar o problema de cateva luni, pana voteaza parlamentele “nationale” sau “comunitare” sau “federale” legislatia necesara.

In cinismul ei, SUA isi pregateste deja iesirea din aceasta situatie; in 2011 va gazdui manifestarile legate de … libertatea presei! Ironie, cinism sau …?

Daca WikiLeaks ramane in picioare, indiferent cum (fie si prin mirroring ) si-si continua activitatea peste toate aceste abuzuri asupra lui J.A. (momentan sunt doar abuzuri, omul a fost acuzat de ceva dar nu si condamnat; cel putin in teorie exista INCA prezumtia de nevinovatie), atunci se va schimba ceva esential in mintea oamenilor: guvernele, parlamentele cu toti servitorii lor pot fi invinse daca oamenii sunt uniti si tin cu dintii de libertatea lor, de accesul la informatie si de libertatea de exprimare.

Existenta evenimentului prin care oamenii si-au aparat libertatea de exprimare si accesul la informatii si au resusit, in ciuda presiunii guvernelor, va fi ACEL CEVA care va declansa un nou nivel de constientizare in randul masei largi de populatie. Si cei care lucreaza la strategiile ce implica masa de populatie sunt constienti de acest aspect.

Problema nu este legata de continutul documentelor in sine ci de ceea ce reprezinta Wikileaks si anume libertatea de exprimare, accesul la informatii si dezvaluirea abuzurilor indivizilor ajunsi in functii de conducere in diverse structuri, abuzuri comise in numele unui popor. WikiLeaks NU este Julian Assange ci o intreaga echipa cu N conexiuni. Nu statea Assange sa puna pe net

Daca Libertatea de Exprimare dispare pentru ca indivizi ajunsi la putere in USA, Franta,  Suedia etc nu vor sa se stie despre manarelile pe care le fac IN NUMELE popoarelor lor, un regim a la Coreea de Nord ni se va parea raiul pe pamant.

Oricum, merita mentionat faptul ca Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, banca elvetiana nu s-au sinchisit si nu au nici o greata sa permita accesul la serviciile lor pentru organizatii de genul KKK , site-urile de pornografie etc si nici nu au blocat conturile si cardurile  violatorilor dovediti din lume, nici macar ale preotilor Vaticanului dovediti molestatori. Dar s-au unit toti impotriva unei persoane care inca beneficiaza de prezumtia de nevinovatie ( nu ca ar conta prea mult asta pentru MasterCard, Visa, PayPal .. dupa cum s-a vazut) si impotriva unui web site care mai aduce ceva transparenta si care a aratat chestii interesante chiar si pentru cei care mai stiu cate ceva.

Un ziar australian “zice” ca au aparut chestii foarte interesante in “docomentele” cu pricina:

But our publications have been far from unimportant. The US diplomatic cables reveal some startling facts:

► The US asked its diplomats to steal personal human material and information from UN officials and human rights groups, including DNA, fingerprints, iris scans, credit card numbers, internet passwords and ID photos, in violation of international treaties. Presumably Australian UN diplomats may be targeted, too.

► King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia asked the US to attack Iran.

► Officials in Jordan and Bahrain want Iran’s nuclear program stopped by any means available.

► Britain’s Iraq inquiry was fixed to protect “US interests”.

► Sweden is a covert member of NATO and US intelligence sharing is kept from parliament.

► The US is playing hardball to get other countries to take freed detainees from Guantanamo Bay. Barack Obama agreed to meet the Slovenian President only if Slovenia took a prisoner. Our Pacific neighbour Kiribati was offered millions of dollars to accept detainees.

In its landmark ruling in the Pentagon Papers case, the US Supreme Court said “only a free and unrestrained press can effectively expose deception in government”. The swirling storm around WikiLeaks today reinforces the need to defend the right of all media to reveal the truth.

Nu poti sa nu te intrebi cum de au fost americanii atat de eficienti in a (incerca) sa blocheze WikiLeaks, sa-l prinda pe Assange si sa-i blocheze banii, dar nu-i nimeresc pe cei din Al-Queda nici dupa un deceniu, desi au strambat legislatia in fel si chip.

Sarah Palin cerea ca Assange sa fie vanat precum Osama bin Laden; hmm… asta ar  insemna ca Assange ar trebui sa mai fie liber un deceniu🙂 Dar deja senatorul Mitch McConnell a anuntat ca daca se constata ca Assange nu a incalcat legea cu documentele vestite, atunci legea va trebui schimbata (NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday)

Este interesant si faptul ca o banca elvetiana a facut sluj imediat in fata americanilor, in conditiile in care abia ieri procurorul general american anunta ca a autorizat “significant” actions ca sa opreasca scurgerea de informatii. Procurorul a spus frumos povestea despre vietile americanilor puse in pericol ( nu ca vietile civililor din alte tari ar conta fata de cele ale americanilor, ne aducem aminte povestile de la noi ) apoi declara senin ca nu vrea sa intre in detalii legat de ceea ce sunt ei [americanii] capabili:

He refused to say whether the Obama administration would try to shut down WikiLeaks. “I don’t want to get into what our capabilities are,” Holder said. “We are looking at all the things we can do to try to stem the flow of this information.”

Well, doamnelor si domnilor, taman ce avem o proba la ce inseamna aceste “capabilities”, aka nici un stat nu misca in fata SUA si nici un om nu poate vorbi daca asta expune aberatiile guvernelor. Nu ca ar fi fost o noutate in sine, dar sa constati ca indivizii ajunsi in guvernele si parlamentele nationale actioneaza sa-si acopere interesele personale mari si grase si deghizeaza totul ca fiind arestarea celui mai periculos violator din lume, fiind siguri ca nimeni nu va misca in front si nu va indrazni sa le dea una peste bot, ei bine, asta este de speriat! Adica se bazeaza pe o pasivitate a populatiei care, DACA este atat de mare precum considera ei, inseamna ca ca avem o foarte mare problema: am murit demult dar inca nu ne-am dat seama.

Ar mai fi interesant de mentionat ca arestarea (predarea) si refuzul de bail-out s-au petrecut azi, 7 dec, adica ziua atacului de la Pearl Harbor, daca nu ma insel.

Poate ca al treilea razboi mondial nu va fi intre tari pentru ca, asa cum arata situatia acum (inclusiv cu WikiLeaks), nici nu poate fi vorba de asta; guvernantii se inteleg intre ei si-si apara jocurile lor. Se mai zgandare precum tzancii si fiecare se da mai mare si mai fioros si vrea mai multi bani si mai multa putere.

Poate ca al treilea razboi va fi  SAU ESTE DEJA doar intre guverne si populatie. Si probabil ca a inceput deja si suntem la runda 2. Ar fi tragic sa pierdem pentru ca ne este lene sa ne aparam propriile drepturi si propria libertate. Si probabil ca ar fi hilar sa pierdem un razboi despre care nu ne-a anuntat nimeni, asa ca nu ne-am prezentat pe campul de lupta, asa ca … o venit dusmanul si o luat TOT: libertatea, informatiile, sanatatea etc. Dar stati .. a lasat ceva: telenovelele. Wow .. deci putem putrezi fericiti :) )

inca ceva: in orice joc sau lupta exista momente in care poti sa intorci situatia la 180 de grade, chiar daca totul a pornit cu o diversiune. Oricate conexiuni  ar exista sau sunt presupuse intre Julian Assange si N bosorogi gen Rockefeller &compania, despartirea problemei WikiLeaks de J.A. si apararea WikiLeaks ca miscarea sa continue (implicit mentinerea publicarii si accesibilitatii documentelor) ar aduce o sansa de a dejuca (din nou ?!) planurile bosorogilor. Tot ce este necesar este despartirea WikiLeaks de JA si tranformarea WL “in steag” ce trece de la unul la altul.

Daca s-ar aborda problema asa, atunci este posibil ca perceptia la nivel de masa sa se schimbe si sa treaca de la “ce mari si puternici sunt ei si ce mici , nenorociti si neputinciosi suntem noi” ( adica perceptia soldatilor ce nu aveau curaj sa lupte cu Goliat) la perceptia pe care a avut-o David despre Goliat.  Si da, atunci Rockfeller & compania plus planurile lor se vor narui. Tot ce ne trebuie este prastia si sufletul lui David, cu tot cu Dumnezeu din el :)

Daca nu … runda 2 devine pierduta deja ( cred ca prima runda s-a vrut a fi povestea cu pandemia AH1N1). Sa speram ca nu este si ultima. Si ce bine ca suntem multi in lumea asta mare si poate unii au deja perceptia si curajul lui David.

Mai bine am face concurs de inventat prastii anti-Rockfeller si pro-WikiLeaks, poate rezolvam problema mai repede :D Unii lucreaza deja, ii cheama Anonymous. Si lucreaza bine; in cateva ore azi, au ajuns de la 508 mirror sites in jurul orei 19.00 la 1008 site-uri acum.

„As an organisation we have always taken a strong stance on censorship and freedom of expression on the internet and come out against those who seek to destroy it by any means.”

„We feel that Wikileaks has become more than just about leaking of documents, it has become a war ground, the people vs. the government,” he said.

The idea that this is the first real battleground between the political establishment and the open web is very arresting. It also forces journalists and news organisations to demonstrate to what extent they are now part of an establishment it is their duty to report. Some like the Guardian, which has a long tradition of free speech attached to it, has been at the heart of disseminating Wikileaks cablegate information.

WikiLeaks: World Leaders Are Real People, Too

Arabia Saudita spune SUA pe cine anume sa atace in lumea araba?

Saudi Arabia proposed creating an Arab force backed by US and Nato air and sea power to intervene in Lebanon two years ago and destroy Iranian-backed Hezbollah, according to a US diplomatic cable released by WikiLeaks.

Parerea unor fosti ofiteri de informatiiEx-Intelligence Officers, Others See Plusses in WikiLeaks Disclosures

WASHINGTON – December 7 – The following statement was released today, signed by Daniel Ellsberg, Frank Grevil, Katharine Gun, David MacMichael, Ray McGovern, Craig Murray, Coleen Rowley and Larry Wilkerson; all are associated with Sam Adams Associates for Integrity in Intelligence.

WikiLeaks has teased the genie of transparency out of a very opaque bottle, and powerful forces in America, who thrive on secrecy, are trying desperately to stuff the genie back in. The people listed below this release would be pleased to shed light on these exciting new developments.

How far down the U.S. has slid can be seen, ironically enough, in a recent commentary in Pravda (that’s right, Russia’s Pravda): „What WikiLeaks has done is make people understand why so many Americans are politically apathetic … After all, the evils committed by those in power can be suffocating, and the sense of powerlessness that erupts can be paralyzing, especially when … government evildoers almost always get away with their crimes. …” […]

Odd, isn’t it, that it takes a Pravda commentator to drive home the point that the Obama administration is on the wrong side of history. Most of our own media are demanding that WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange be hunted down – with some of the more bloodthirsty politicians calling for his murder. The corporate-and-government dominated media are apprehensive over the challenge that WikiLeaks presents. Perhaps deep down they know, as Dickens put it, „There is nothing so strong … as the simple truth.”

Wikileaks: Power shifts from secrecy to transparency

Government should be transparent by default, secret by necessity. Of course, it is not. Too much of government is secret. Why? Because those who hold secrets hold power.

Now Wikileaks has punctured that power. Whether or not it ever reveals another document—and we can be certain that it will—Wikileaks has made us all aware that no secret is safe. If something is known by one person, it can be known by the world.

But that has always been the case. The internet did not kill secrecy. It only makes copying and spreading information easier and faster. It weakens secrecy. Or as a friend of mine says, the internet democratizes leaking. It used to be, only the powerful could hold and uncover knowledge. Now many can.
