POST 97

Well you have heard of the Bilderbugs and Planet Monsanto (formerly Earth), now welcome to the Super bugs which hopefully will soon just be bugs.  Welcome folks to a bug free Post.
They thought it was only happening in the rivers of India—but scientists have now discovered antibiotic-resistant superbugs in the Hudson River around New York.
Untreated raw sewage, pumped directly into the river, appears to be the source, say scientists from the city’s Columbia University. The bugs are resistant to common antibiotics such as ampicillin and tetracycline, which are usually used to treat ear infections, pneumonia and salmonella.
The scientists took water samples from 10 different locations along the river, from the Tappan Zee Bridge to lower Manhattan, and found microbes that were resistant to at least one of the antibiotics in the vast majority of samples.
People swim in the Hudson, but the researchers urge would-be swimmers to first check that their favourite spot is free of the superbugs, while people who already have compromised immune systems should stay out of the Hudson.

Super Bug----watch out superman!!!
A ‘superbug’ that is resistant to drugs has started to cause serious ear infections in children.  So far, nine cases have been reported by doctors in America, but researchers fear that many more children have been affected.
A variant of Streptococcus pneumoniae – known as serotype 19A – is causing cases of acute otitis media, an infection of the middle ear.  Of the nine cases reported by one clinic in Rochester, New York, four could be treated only by surgery.
The new strain emerged following the introduction of a vaccination programme in 2000, which doctors say achieved immunity against seven pneumococcal strains.  It was first seen in children in Alaska, but has since been reported in the USA.
Some of the infected children responded to the powerful antibiotic levofloxacin, which is supposed to be given only to adults, and so was used without the usual safety controls.

Politicians, loud talk, noise and bugs all give me ear ache, even my own noisy thoughts --so there!
Regarding the tendency for "nursery" babies to get more ear infections (vol 4 no 10). In my experience as an allergy therapist, I find that repeated ear infections are usually caused by intolerance to cows' milk products.
Although it is perfectly possible for babies to get ear infections because their mothers are consuming cows' milk products and passing them through the breast milk (see Second Opinion, p 12), at least breast fed babies get cows' milk only as a relatively small proportion of their diet.
Babies who get 100 per cent cows' milk formula bottles get exactly that.
I would guess that more babies in nurseries are 100 per cent bottle fed for obvious reasons and that the 100 per cent breast fed ones are less likely to go to nurseries just because their food supply would be elsewhere. V J Kearney, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.....
I was interested to read the article by Harald Gaier in WDDTY vol 5 no 12 on childhood earache. The last paragraph reminded me of a patient I saw recently with chronic ear infections since age seven. In the past, he'd had antibiotics at least three times a year and an operation to insert grommets in both ears at the age of five. Neither had helped his condition.
On examination I found severely restricted movement in his cervical spine (neck). He was treated with upper back and neck massage, manipulation of his neck, and cranial osteopathy of his neck and temporary bones (the ear canal sits in this bone).
After one treatment, his ear pain had gone and he had normal movement in his neck. He came to see me four months after this because he had had a recurrence of ear pain, but no infection. Again, it was found that his neck movement had become restricted, and after a similar treatment to the previous one, his ear pain and neck stiffness had gone. Osteopathy and cranial osteopathy worked well with this child, and I am sure that others can benefit as well.

Elon Musk Unveils 'Hyperloop' Futuristic Trave

I guess you could say my comments at end of this article will sound like sour grapes and good luck to Mr Musk.
The blueprint for a "Hyperloop" transport system capable of reaching speeds of 760mph has been unveiled.
The system would enable people to travel 400 miles from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 30 minutes at near-supersonic speeds.
It is designed to be self-powering, uses magnets and fans to shoot capsules carrying passengers on a cushion of air through pressurised tubes.
The revolutionary invention is the brainchild of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, who has called the system a cross between a "Concorde, a railgun, and an air hockey table".
The founder of electric car maker Tesla Motors (Xetra: A1CX3T - news) and private space exploration firm SpaceX, released a 57-page document outlining the project.
"Short of figuring out real teleportation, which would of course be awesome ... the only option for super-fast travel is to build a tube over or under the ground that contains a special environment," he wrote.
He said the system was capable of speeds up to 760mph (1,220kph), and would best work between cities closer than 900 miles.
The estimated cost of connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco is $6bn (£3.9bn), which could translate to a fare of about $20 (£13) for a one-way ticket.
He has no plans to build the system immediately, but said he wanted to reveal a detailed design of the concept to allow others to brainstorm ideas and improve on his vision.
The 42-year-old, who was born in South Africa but is a US citizen, is also the head of SolarCity, a company which makes solar panels for homes and businesses.
He also has a foundation that focuses on education, clean energy and child health.
He banked his first millions when he sold Zip2 to US computer maker Compaq (NYSE: HPQ - news) for more than $300m (£194m) in 1999.
His next company, X.com eventually merged with PayPal, the online payments firm bought by internet auction giant eBay in 2002.
My plan was a rail with superconductivity ( which was achievable at the time by a fellow scientists friend) and had magnets opposing the carriage and hooks to the carriage preventing it lifting and was propelled this way.  My friend also invented an engine for a car that ran on anything, it literally converted all material to combustion and I designed the material to contain the engine (material made out of husks and could contain some explosions), we were both threatened, I backed out, he did not and mysteriously died in the most extraordinary circumstances. This was the first skirmish. A well known raw material firm warned us off and the travel industry did for the train.  The second time I managed to sell my heat recirculating inventions, made a lot of money and through ignorance of business did a bad investment and ended up broke and still paying for it. The third time was in Cambridge 18 months back where a Russian Scientist and I invented a Stargate, it was successful once, we got warned off so we could not go on. He went back to Russia. I have realised I am supposedly not to go down this path and stick to now the Post and a pursuit of spiritual refinement, its enough.  By the bye I noticed the article mentions teleportation, that's what we did with the stargate. 
 That's me folks.  Resigned to the quiet life.

Scroll down to Stargate. I merely give a sketch as to its workings, the details and scientific know how was in collaboration with Mikhail.  I have heard long ago the black ops have got one or two or more anyway.  Not good for a kosher oy veh Buddhist and quirky Russian Vodka Scientist to go to the moon and Mars and back in twenty seconds, that's real tsu ris.  No money my life so sure it shouldn't happen to a dog(Jewish expression holding the ears and looking highly distressed even if acute haemorrhoidal---so far in my life near to 75 yrs young in November, er you biting Scorpio, I have never had haemorrhoids, ( rhyming cockney slang, Farmer Giles- piles) going down the stargate would certainly be a cure. It is just I have been with people who have a lot of the piles--horrendous thought maybe I am the cause of them---big oy veh.  What Karma already so soon over my friends dead body, my life already more Cockney Yiddish, you know colloquialisms and slang in most languages really get to the point.  Anyway I really am too worn out in this respect and like the old Zen saying when  really laying it down for good and just the only passing wry smile as it surfaces again like Mr Musk 'old worn out shoes'. I'm not a threat or in contention now, just say an old codger reminiscing, 'what might have been.' Yet I do have any regrets, a few gentle intimate inner smiles.
When I lived in Minorca, Spain.many of us wore sandals made out of old rubber car tires and when they were worn out you saw many of them just discarded by the roadside.

Non, je ne regrette rien

No, nothing of nothing
No! I don't feel sorry about anything
Not the good things people have done to me
Not the bad things, it's all the same to me.
No, nothing of nothing
No! I don't feel sorry about anything
It's paid for, removed, forgotten,
I'm happy of the past
With my memories
I lit up the fire
My troubles, my pleasures
I don't need them anymore
Broomed away my love stories
And all their tremble
Broomed away for always
I start again from zero
Non ! Je ne regrette rien
Ni le mal, tout ça m'est bien égal !
Non ! Je ne regrette rien
Because my life, my joys
Today, they begin with you.
Dear Folks if one can look back into their lives, no matter how young or perceived old one is, smile at the memories and let them pass with dignity and joy. Not to hold onto dreams, clouds, aromas that come and go, it makes space, more room to accommodate the now, this precious instant which has gone as soon as awareness of it is recognised. 
This fleeting life in the span of the Universe is a mere infinitesimal iota in boundless, endless space. This life but a dream within a dream, the dream conjured from stored memories and the library and memoirs of the beholder. Who is it that views the dreams behind the presentation, the graphics, the digitalised manoeuvring within the landscape of possibility, the combinations, the convulsing panorama, and to find this viewer, why it is you the awareness. One can only name the content, the space, which is awareness allows the content to flit by like a film in the cinema, the content the pictures, the screen the space of Awareness which is viewer.  Make sure you can differ between content and you.  
The Screen of Awareness.
We think we are separate. 
We think we are separate with each interpreting through the net and filter of our programme, culture, conditioning, and yet the screen is blank, an awareness which is common to all.  There are no individuals in Awareness.  Try it, next time on the TV or Cinema, become aware of yourself watching, breathing, you might think or feel you will not enjoy it as much as feeling the passion or whatever, yet the essence comes across, you will remember it without the need to store it, and yet recall it, it is another way of remembering without emotional personal entanglement.
The Universe is awareness without limit, broken up into units of self realising entities, who become encased in form, witch 'look back' into the awareness, passed the content on the screen, and one comes to space, the watcher, the witness and then the unit has surrendered its embodiment to become itself as awareness, the wave has become the ocean.   Non, je ne regrette rien.
Dearest reader nostalgia and haunting memories can play at the back of your mind and these subtle nuances can like a dream forgotten, leave a bad taste in the mouth and influence the day, as awareness deepens, sharpens, becomes oneself, the self meeting self, then moods ah la chance, are brought to the surface and one sees them for what they are. Gossamer, silky transparent smoke with very little structure, wafting like leaves in the wind, gyrating like seaweed in the tide, no real substance, and like smoke swirling away with each emotional seemingly tangible something, and upon grasping them, it seems to slip the fingers of the clutching mind. There it was gone.  What was so seemingly important, has become a memory, hopefully let go and not buried, only to resurface when a 'signal' a similar experience regurgitates this memory and with the video of smells, hurts, pleasures and pain, this will come to TV's soon as sure as 3D viewing.
The media, the glamour of pain and suffering, the morbid fascination, the yearning to belong, to be in relationship, to be rich, to be enlightened, to be something other than what we are, I am. This yearning drives many to seek it outside of oneself, in the world of form apparent reality, yet death reawakens us to our mortality, we realise we are but a passing form. 
The very impermanence shocks us, from here we seek more distraction to run away to the cinema of the mind, and the screen being blank says, this is death, yet it is the saviour without form, for without form you can never die.
It is the entrepreneurs of the media to seduce one away from oneself and so make one easy prey, seduced and lured, groomed and brain washed to whatever is dished up, celebrity, power, position, wealth, fulfilment in impermanence. Yet one can enjoy impermanence by enjoying the form as in the cinema explanation and not holding onto it as reality.  One lives in the screen but can enjoy the content knowing new images arise and go.  This the Bilderbugs know, so sports, films, media are paid huge amounts for seducing us away from what is happening in the wars and conflicts, the surveillance, the killing of nature, and as they rape your mind, you reach for the remote TV control, often flicking through endless channels to kill the emptiness one maybe feeling, the boredom, the cut offness, and yet sitting quietly with that emptiness brings one to emptiness, this emptiness if embraced and allowed to peculate brings a peace, however, that feeling of helplessness to make change out there, changes, why, because the real change is inside.   

A great Lady, a great being
I look forward to my graduation and no matter what age one is you never know when that great University recalls you and the ceremony of the awaiting New Life is but a thrill and joy to behold.

Be here now folks, because its the only place you can ever be.

A new leak indicates U.S. and U.K. intelligence agencies have cracked much of the encryption relied upon to protect the privacy of online personal data, in response to law enforcement failures to introduce mandatory backdoors.
The growing surveillance industry complex is providing governments with increasingly sophisticated spying software to track and control their citizens, according to documents obtained by WikiLeaks.
After announcing that the U.S. Director of National Intelligence will release a transparency report of national security-related requests for user data, the U.S. government will not permit Google and Microsoft to disclose similar statistics.

Internet cafes are being shut down the Autonomous Republic of Nakhchivan in Azerbaijan. The crackdown started on 23 August, in what rights groups believe is an attempt to restrict access to information ahead of upcoming presidential election.
Two senior U.N. representatives have warned the British government that the protection of state secrets must not be used as an excuse to "intimidate the press into silence" following the detention of David Miranda under the U.K.'s Terrorism Act.

Syria's civil war and political strife in Egypt have thrown up new battlegrounds on the web and driven a surge in cyber attacks in the Middle East, according to a leading internet security company.
In a move to control organized crime, the Mexican government has introduced laws that will give police access to more online data, increasing surveillance capacity and threatening free expression.
In response to the NSA spying leaks, Germans are switching to national email providers and demanding encryption services normally reserved for corporate security, according to German justice minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger.
For at least six years, U.S. drug enforcement agents have had routine access to an enormous AT&T database that contains the records of decades of phone calls, through a program known as Hemisphere.

India will urge 400,000 of the country’s top bureaucrats to route all official email through Indian government servers. The move comes as government officials have made increasing use of compromised private email services such as Google and Yahoo.
The U.S. is likely to make cyber attacks part of any military action against Syria, experts say. Intelligence documents publicized last week revealed the U.S. has an expansive cyber warfare operation that could be mobilized for an assault.
