Faeries & Unexplained Creatures, Alternative Medicine - Dr. Joel Wallach, R. Murphy Jr. 30/10/15

Alternative Medicine/ Faeries & Unexplained Creatures
Date:Thursday - October 29, 2015
Host:George Noory
Guests: Dr. Joel Wallach, Ronald Murphy Jr.

In the first half of the program, Dr. Joel Wallach discussed the body and its ability to benefit from natural healing without using modern medicine. Diseases and ailments are often related to deficiencies in various nutrients and minerals, he contends. For millennia, humans unknowingly enhanced their diet with minerals by putting wood ashes from fireplaces into their gardens. However, with the advent of electricity, the population largely stopped burning wood, and now have many more health problems because of the lack of these minerals, he stated.
Wallach declared that people will actually be healthier by not going to the doctor [my GP almost killed me thru his professional negligence...ed.], and can remain in optimal condition by giving the body everything it needs nutrition-wise, as well as avoiding certain dietary items like processed meats, and fried foods. Discussing the condition of gout, he said that it stems from an enzyme/metabolism problem in the liver and suggested that sufferers avoid eating items that make uric acid, including shellfish, legumes (peas/beans), and organ meats.

In the latter half, researcher and folklorist Ronald L. Murphy Jr. revealed how the world of the the fey, or faerie realm, can correlate to many different archetypes including Dogman, Bigfoot, werewolves, Thunderbirds, ghosts, and more. This other realm or "Goblin Universe," bleeds into our world every now and then, he remarked. Sightings of the Dogman, a tall furry cryptid capable of walking on two legs, in locations such as graveyards, and burial mounds, have been a recent fascination of Murphy's. Is it a real physical creature, an animal-human hybrid, or are certain entities' manipulating the witnesses' perception?, he pondered.
The fey realm is essential for understanding some of these transformations, as faeries are said to have the ability to "glamour" or alter people's perceptions, or create projections, he explained. According to faerie legend, there are two types of beings, those from the Seelie Court (blessed, benevolent, helpful) and the Unseelie Court (the damned, mischievous, dangerous), and the latter could be involved in mysterious disappearances, he cited. Murphy noted the similarity of the world of ghosts and the fey, as both involve crossing over a veil, as well as how certain geological factors can enhance paranormal phenomena.

Hepatitis C: behind new wonder drugs lies a terrible dilemma

150m carriers, and rising Jarun Ontakrai

There are 160m carriers of the hepatitis C virus across the world. Combined with the hepatitis B virus, which has 240m carriers, this causes 1.4m deaths every year.
Yet there are grounds for optimism around hepatitis C. Numerous pharmaceutical companies have recently brought to market new sets of “direct-acting antiviral” medicines to combat the infection. These have been shown to permanently clear the hepatitis C virus in 90% of patients in only a few short weeks, and with negligible adverse effects. It is not an overstatement to say that these antivirals have the potential to do for hepatitis C what oral vaccination did for polio.
But there is a fly in the ointment. The new drugs are unaffordable. Take the UK as an example, where around 214,000 people live with hepatitis C. Going by the indicated list price of £35,000 per treatment course, it would cost around £7.5 billion to treat every infected person. Even the staunchest hepatitis advocate would concede that since that approaches the entire NHS annual drug budget, treating everyone is not feasible in the short term.

The moral maze

This presents a conundrum for policy professionals across the world: if we cannot afford to treat everyone in need immediately, how should we go about allocating the limited number of treatments that we can afford? With direct-acting antivirals now available in virtually all high-income countries, the two main routes available to those in charge of health budgets are as follows.
The first can be dubbed the “anti-decision” option. You allow the situation to develop organically, without exerting any guiding hand over who receives treatment now and who waits until later. This circumvents having to make a potentially unpopular decision on rationing. But not all patients have an equal need for treatment – and where demand for a medicine outstrips supply, a decision not to prioritise anyone often amounts to a tacit decision to prioritise unjustly on social criteria.
This is what happened when insulin was made publicly available in the 1920s, for instance, following its discovery by Fredrick Banting. Severe production constraints meant that demand for insulin far exceeded its possible supply and there were no formal criteria to decide who should be prioritised. As a result, the drug was largely allocated to Banting’s own patients and to the politically well-connected.
The second route is the diametric alternative. Rather than avoiding making a decision, you take the bull by the horns and prioritise explicit groups of patients to accomplish a specific public health goal. The challenge is to identify which goal, for there are several worthy candidates. One might say, for example, that hepatitis C transmission rates among people who inject drugs are too high, and so remedying this problem should be the priority.
Others may take the view that the steady year-on-year increases in people who develop severe consequences from the infection can’t be tolerated, so we should use the treatments to turn this tide. Both goals are laudable and legitimate, but the costs prohibit prioritising both. In other words, the opportunity cost of prioritising one is to forfeit the other.

On the ground

So what approach are we leaning towards? In the UK a consensus is emerging that the near-term priority should be treating patients with advanced liver fibrosis – this is also being pursued by private and state-funded health insurance programmes in the US. This advanced liver fibrosis subgroup, (which accounts) for about 30% of the total hep C infected population in Scotland, exhibits by far the greatest immediate risk of severe liver complications like liver failure and liver cancer, the prognoses for which are very bleak.
The crucial fact that prioritising this group will save the most lives makes it possible to justify the policy both to individual patients and to those who want to see the biggest public health benefit. Scotland, for instance, expects to reduce new-onset liver failures and liver cancer by 75% to fewer than 50 cases a year by 2020 if this strategy is followed through. With the number of cases currently rising fast, this would be nothing less than remarkable.
But let us not lose sight of the wider picture. Viral hepatitis is a global problem whose solution depends not just on making progress in richer countries, but making inroads in poorer countries too – particularly those in Asia and Africa where the greatest viral hepatitis burden lies. A global problem requires global endeavour. Historically, most governments and the big aid donors have been lacklustre at investing in this cause.
Cue then the Glasgow Declaration, unveiled at the close of the first world hepatitis summit, which was held in the city in September. It is an open letter imploring all governments to work together to eliminate viral hepatitis as a public health concern.
World Hepatitis Summit, September 2015. GCU      
Will it be heeded? Certainly the declaration has popular support, and the fact that a world hepatitis summit took place at all is an indication that the tide of apathy may be turning on this Cinderella disease. While governments debate which policies to follow in relation to the new hepatitis C drugs, it will be interesting to see how they have reacted to the declaration by the time of the second world summit in Brazil next year. Watch this space.

WikiLeaks founder and fugitive tells Czechs US is biggest producer of secrets

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has defended the whistle blowing site in a video conference appearance at Jihlava’s documentary film festival on Thursday night. Assange, currently a virtual prisoner in the Ecuador embassy in London, brushed off charges that WikiLeaks concentrated solely on US and Western secrets. He told his Czech audience that US authorities were the biggest generator of secrets in the world. WikiLeaks had revealed secrets from Russia, China, Peru, and Kenya as well, he said, admitting thought that the site’s main language is English. Russian member of the punk band Pussy Riot, Maria Aljochina, also took part in the debate saying she hoped Assange would be released soon from his three years in the embassy evading an extradition order to Sweden.

Welcome to Scotland, the SNP's police state

Kenny MacAskill, justice secretary, has apparently handed over to Stephen House, chief of police

Scotland's SNP government has adopted a curious approach to showcasing the nation's qualities ahead of the independence referendum. You certainly can't accuse them of purveying a rose-tinted image of auld Scotia. For it seems that the country has, at some point in the last seven years, turned into the most illegal small country in the world and the SNP appear to be revelling in it.
For no apparent reason that I can recall, the SNP in 2007 committed itself to providing the country with an extra 1,000 police officers. There didn't appear to have been any great popular clamour for this remarkable and expensive job creation scheme for the plods. I don't remember any cataclysmic increases in violent crime across the country, certainly nothing which a disciplined, properly focused force operating under good leadership couldn't cope with. Since then, we have discovered that our police force has been anything but disciplined, focused or properly led and for this the rest of us have had to pay a mighty price in money and civil liberties.
Last March, the numbers of police officers in Scotland reached a record high of 17,496, according to Scotland's chief statistician, and the nationalists crowed that another election promise had been met and just in time for the birth of the new single police force. Huzzah! The problem, though, with providing this small and reasonably well-behaved wee country with an extra 1,000 polis is this: how do we keep them all occupied week in, week out? Easy-peasy… we simply criminalise lots of law-abiding people. And if we don't actually criminalise them, well… we can just treat them like criminals instead.
Thus was the Offensive Behaviour at Football Matches legislation introduced in 2012, which sought to target young, working-class men from Glasgow's poorest districts for espousing tribal sentiments in support of Celtic or Rangers. Hundreds of previously law-abiding men have been subject to Stasi tactics by the police and dragged through the courts for singing age-old songs about the war in Ireland. Others have been kettled and intimidated by foul-mouthed cops for daring to march together peacefully to a game.
Last week, we discovered what the second part of the SNP's hitherto covert criminalise the punters strategy looked like. Between April and December last year, the police conducted almost 520,000 stop-and-search procedures on members of the Scottish public, almost 2,000 a day and twice as many as are carried out by London's Metropolitan police.
The Scottish police claimed that this strategy of suspecting just about everyone of being a criminal was a success because nearly 20% resulted in a positive result. The previous week, we had discovered that Scots police were much more likely to go after people using mobile phones in their cars than those who had committed a sexual assault. Compared to modern, lawless Scotland, Snake Plissken had it easy in Escape From New York.
It's all nonsense, because the crime figures are provided by the Scottish police and thus must be treated in the same manner as you would an economic progress report from North Korea. Increasingly, the Scottish police are themselves operating above the law with the impunity of a general's private army in a banana republic. And it also seems Kenny MacAskill, the cabinet secretary for justice, without telling anyone, has transferred his powers as justice secretary to the unelected Stephen House, Scotland's new chief of police.
In the last five years or so, we have learned that several hundred police officers actually have serious criminal records or been accused of serious criminal offences. Among the allegations are rape, sex attacks, violence, wife beating, theft, fire attacks, abduction, stalking, football disorder, racism and data breaches.
Meanwhile, despite almost 150 police officers being reported to prosecutors for alleged corruption, only six have been convicted. The alleged corruption included serious assault, bribery, blackmail and gangland activity. Unlawful access to secret files and lying in statements (an old police favourite) were the least of it. Strathclyde police, Scotland's biggest force, refused to provide figures on the pretext of cost. At this rate, the public will soon be given stop-and-search powers over the cops. God knows what would come tumbling out of their high-vis tunics.
Last week, according to the Independent, we learned that secret groups of Freemasons have been used by organised crime gangs for years to corrupt the criminal justice system. This echoes a chilling declaration by Strathclyde's deputy chief constable recently that 27 organised crime gangs were attempting to infiltrate the force by planting recruits in the ranks and grooming others. Yet, in Scotland the government has always resisted calls for membership of secret societies to be deemed unacceptable for all serving police officers and judges.
The abuse of their powers by the police is part of a wider picture of police corruption and lawlessness throughout the UK, which had remained unchecked despite nasty little episodes such as the Met's Flying Squad porn baron scandal of the mid-70s. The thuggery displayed by police officers during the miners' strike in 1984 at places such as Orgreave and Polkemmet was virtually sanctioned by Margaret Thatcher as she vowed to destroy those whom she called "the enemy within". The Birmingham Six, the Hillsborough cover-up and the Stephen Lawrence inquiry all pointed to a force that had been allowed far too much respect by government and judiciary.
In Scotland, a supposedly enlightened, progressive and democratic administration has made the police virtually untouchable and handed the force wide-ranging and discretionary powers over the people. Yet all the evidence and anecdotal experience points to an organisation that has itself turned feral and is almost beyond state control. MacAskill, now in reality acting merely as bag carrier to House, should be brought to account for allowing this to happen on his watch. An independent review of the customs, practices and recruitment policies of the police must be undertaken before the people say enough is enough and sort it out themselves.
In the meantime, let's put all talk about membership of the EU aside. For, at this rate, if Scotland does gain its independence in September we will merely become the newest member of the confederation of independent police states.

UK Guantanamo detainee Shaker Aamer to be released

25 September 2015

The last British resident being held in Guantanamo Bay is to be returned to the UK, the government has said.
Shaker Aamer, 46, who has been in the military prison in Cuba since 2002, has never been charged or been on trial.
Since 2007 he has been cleared for release twice, by US presidents George W Bush and Barack Obama.
The Saudi national has permission to live in the UK indefinitely because his wife is British. They have four children and live in London.
His daughter Johina, 17, who last saw her father when she was four years old, tweeted: "Thank you everyone for all the support.

"The news hasn't hit yet. We can't believe we might finally see our dad after 14 years."

Media captionFormer Guantanamo detainee Moazzam Begg said that Shaker Aamer was "force-fed" while he was detained
A British government spokesman said: "The government has regularly raised Mr Aamer's case with the US authorities and we support President Obama's commitment to closing the detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.
"In terms of next steps, we understand that the US government has notified Congress of this decision and once that notice period has been concluded, Mr Aamer will be returned to the UK."
Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond tweeted: "Welcome decision by #US Government to return Shaker Aamer to the UK. Long standing priority for HMG to secure his release."
The BBC understands that the earliest date Mr Aamer could be released to the UK is 25 October.
The US Congress, by law, is allowed a 30-day notification window to review the inmate transfer.
Mr Aamer was detained in Afghanistan in 2001. US authorities allege he had led a unit of Taliban fighters and had met former al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden.
But Mr Aamer has maintained he was in Afghanistan with his family doing charity work.

The release of Shaker Aamer from Guantanamo Bay prison after 13 years there without trial follows a lengthy campaign for his release by numerous high-profile figures on both sides of the Atlantic.
Mr Aamer was picked up in Afghanistan in late 2001 on suspicion of playing a leading role in an al-Qaeda cell but his supporters say he was sold into captivity by bounty hunters.
He was then "rendered" from one detention centre to another, transferred to Cuba and never formally charged.
His lawyer says he is innocent and he was twice cleared for release by US presidents, in 2007 and 2009.
Once he arrives in Britain he is likely to be subject to some oversight by the authorities, part of the deal for his release.
But after his long incarceration without trial, during which he says he was tortured, he will be under pressure to tell his story.

BBC home affairs correspondent Dominic Casciani said Mr Aamer became a spokesman for other prisoners in Guantanamo - and camp commanders negotiated with him to help end a hunger strike.
Former Guantanamo detainee Moazzam Begg told the BBC Mr Aamer was probably the "most well-known prisoner there" because "he has been fighting and advocating for the rights of the prisoners from inside the prison".
Mr Begg said "no amount of therapy" would replace the years Mr Aamer has spent imprisoned.
"I think this will be a harder struggle for Shaker Aamer to deal with than the actual imprisonment," he said.

'Travesty of justice'

Mr Begg added: "Shaker of course has been subjected to almost 14 years without charge or trial in Guantanamo, spending a huge amount of his time in solitary confinement.
"He lost more than half his body weight at several junctures during that period because of the hunger strikes he'd had to go on.
"He's been force fed, with tubes forced into his nose, being strapped down to a chair, with his head and his legs also tied down."
Mr Aamer's lawyer, Clive Stafford Smith of the campaign group Reprieve, said his return to the UK was "about 13 years too late".
He said: "I think we need to keep the pressure up in order to make sure that he comes home just as soon as possible."

Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen said the news was a "huge relief" for Mr Aamer's family and supporters, who have "worked tirelessly" for his release.
"Let's not forget that his 13-year ordeal at Guantanamo has been an absolute travesty of justice," she said.
"Shaker Aamer is the last UK resident to finally get out of Guantanamo and his return to Britain brings a long, painful chapter to a close."
Joanne MacInnes, co-ordinator of the "We Stand With Shaker" campaign, said it had been a "long struggle" and it was "amazing news" that he was to be released.
"Every day he was in there was just a horror," she said. "We have got a lot of support to give him when he gets back."
In January, Johina Aamer told BBC Newsbeat: "It is still not enough to just speak through Skype while people in the prison are listening to us.
"What we want most is to have our dad home so that we can be a family and so that my mum can finally be with him... we all hope that he is released soon so that we can be a normal family again."
