Welfare recipients banned from buying alcohol and gambling under radical plan proposed by Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest

John Lehmann | dailytelegraph.com.au

ABOUT 2.5 million Australians on welfare will be banned from using their handouts to buy alcohol or gamble under a radical plan to be considered by the Abbott government.

Welfare recipients will be given a special “health welfare card” linked to their bank accounts under the plan proposed by mining magnate Andrew “Twiggy” Forrest.

New technology allows the card to be programmed to prevent the money being used on “prohibited goods” such as alcohol and gambling, a confidential report says.

Going green: the rise of the eco-funeral

Catherine Rodie | smh.com.au

Environmentally conscious souls are choosing ‘greener’ ways to farewell their loved ones. From the ‘mushroom death suit’ to a simple backyard burial, here are some of the weird and wonderful lengths people will go to for an eco-funeral.

“I’d love to return as a tree,” says 34-year-old Helen Nickols. “To lie in nature, in a beautiful forest, and not in a cemetery. I’d love to lie in a forest and have kids running around me, not having to step carefully.”

CDC: Strokes rising among younger ages

Source: USA Today

Strokes are on the rise among teens and young people, a new government report shows.

The number of people aged 15 to 44 hospitalized for stroke jumped by more than third between 1995 and 2008, say researchers from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The increase may be due partly to the increasing numbers of young people who have diseases such as high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes — diseases usually associated with older adults, they added.

High blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol are all risk factors for stroke, the researchers noted.

The great wind delusion has hijacked our energy policy

Christopher Booker
telegraph.co.uk

Anyone impressed by the efficient way in which Britain has organised the Olympic Games might consider the stark contrast provided by the shambles of our national energy policy – wholly focused as it is on the belief that we can somehow keep our lights on by building tens of thousands more wind turbines within eight years. At one point last week, Britain’s 3,500 turbines were contributing 12 megawatts (MW) to the 38,000MW of electricity we were using. (The Neta website, which carries official electricity statistics, registered this as “0.0 per cent”).

It is 10 years since I first pointed out here how crazy it is to centre our energy policy on wind. It was pure wishful thinking then and is even more obviously so now, when the Government in its latest energy statement talks of providing, on average, 12,300MW of power from “renewables” by 2020.

Exercise is the best medicine, study shows

Queensland University of Technology | Science Daily

Women would benefit from being prescribed exercise as medicine, according to a study that revealed moderate to high intensity activity is essential to reducing the risk of death in older women. “What we are saying is that high-intensity exercise is not only good for your physical health but also your brain health. Doctors should be developing exercise programs that are home-based and easy to incorporate as part of everyday activities,” authors say.

Washing Your Mouth With A Silver Solution Treats Fungus, Viruses and Yeast

Prevent Disease

Yeasts which cause hard-to-treat mouth infections are killed using silver solutions in the laboratory, scientists have found. These yeast infections, caused by Candida albicans and Candida glabrata target the young, old and immuno-compromised.

Professor Mariana Henriques, University of Minho, and her colleagues hope to test silver nanoparticles in mouthwash and dentures as a potential preventative measure against these infections.

One of the problems that exists with silver nanoparticles is it can be toxic to even beneficial bacteria that break down substances in the mouth and gut so scientists hope to create solutions for the problem.

Another potential issue researchers have expressed concerns around is the safety of nanoparticles themselves, but the authors stress this research is at an early stage and extensive safety trials will be carried out before any product reaches the market.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Help to Reduce the Physical Harm Caused by Smoking

Science Daily

The study, carried out in Greece, assessed the effect of four-week oral treatment with 2 g/day of omega-3 fatty acids on the arterial wall properties of cigarette smokers. The results showed that short-term treatment with omega-3 fatty acids improves arterial stiffness and moderates the acute smoking-induced impairment of vascular elastic properties in smokers.

“These findings suggest that omega-3 fatty acids inhibit the detrimental effects of smoking on arterial function, which is an independent prognostic marker of cardiovascular risk,” said Dr. Gerasimos Siasos, University of Athens Medical School, 1st Department of Cardiology, “Hippokration” Hospital.

Bob Brown delivers the 3rd annual Green Oration

The Greens

The full text of Bob’s speech is below:

Fellow Earthians,

Never before has the Universe unfolded such a flower as our collective human intelligence, so far as we know.

Nor has such a one-and-only brilliance in the Universe stood at the brink of extinction, so far as we know.

We people of the Earth exist because our potential was there in the Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago, as the Universe exploded into being.

So far, it seems like we are the lone thinkers in this vast, expanding Universe.

However, recent astronomy tells us that there are trillions of other planets circling Sunlike stars in the immensity of the Universe, millions of them friendly to life. So why has no one from elsewhere in the Cosmos contacted us?

Surely some people-like animals have evolved elsewhere. Surely we are not, in this crowded reality of countless other similar planets, the only thinking beings to have turned up. Most unlikely! So why isn’t life out there contacting us? Why aren’t the intergalactic phones ringing?

Here is one sobering possibility for our isolation: maybe life has often evolved to intelligence on other planets with biospheres and every time that intelligence, when it became able to alter its environment, did so with catastrophic consequences. Maybe we have had many predecessors in the Cosmos but all have brought about their own downfall.

MRSA Found in Conventional Milk Shows Why Raw Milk Is Safer

Heidi Stevensongaia-health.com

Currently, raw milk is legal in England. It’s the cleanest and healthiest milk you can buy. MRSA-infested milk from standard cruel tightly-packed operations—milk that must be pasteurized to be rendered anything close to safe—has been found in bulk milk.

If you drink milk from almost any source other than directly from a caring farmer who provides raw, unpasteurized milk, then you should worry. The plan is not to dump this contaminated milk. No, the plan is to pasteurize it and declare it “safe”.
