Extreme heat from a massive supervolcano underneath Yellowstone National Park is melting a major roadway at the popular summertime tourist attraction. Park officials have closed the area to visitors.
Firehole Lake Drive, a 3-mile-plus offshoot of the park’s Grand Loop that connects the Old Faithful geyser and the Madison Junction, is currently off limits. Park operators say the danger of stepping on seemingly solid soil into severely hot water is “high.”
“It basically turned the asphalt into soup. It turned the gravel road into oatmeal,” Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said. Read more…

Monsanto’s Herbicide Linked to Fatal Kidney Disease Epidemic: Could It Topple the Company? Truthout Friday 11th July 2014
Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup has been linked to a mysterious fatal kidney disease epidemic that has appeared in Central America, Sri Lanka and India.
For years, scientists have been trying to unravel the mystery of a chronic kidney disease epidemic that has hit Central America, India and Sri Lanka. The disease occurs in poor peasant farmers who do hard physical work in hot climes. In each instance, the farmers have been exposed to herbicides and to heavy metals. The disease is known as CKDu, for Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown etiology. The “u” differentiates this illness from other chronic kidney diseases where the cause is known. Very few Western medical practitioners are even aware of CKDu, despite the terrible toll it has taken on poor farmers from El Salvador to South Asia.Read more…
Monsanto, Syngenta, Bayer: Big Agri Peddles “GMO Gruel” to the Impoverished
Clearly the solution to solving destitution that leads to malnutrition and starvation is addressing the socioeconomic disparity that created it in the first place, but the monopolies that benefit from this disparity the most are in no way about to do so. Instead, their proposal is to feed the third world with genetically modified gruel to make up for the fact that poor populations cannot access a normal, balanced diet. This “GMO gruel” not only allows big-agricultural monopolies to expand their markets under the guise of “charity,” but allows them to monopolize a greater portion of the world’s food supply. By hooking the third world on “GMO gruel” that will be patented, centrally controlled, and beyond the means of local populations to reproduce independently, the very perpetrators of global disparity will only tighten their grip on humanity tighter still.

Studies conducted over the last decade have clearly demonstrated the link between adverse reactions to Psycho-Pharmaceutical medications and underactive or underperforming CYP450 enzymes. This has caused some to wonder whether or not the recent uptick in mass shootings and the obvious link to many of the perpetrators and prescription drugs could be related to the performance of the CYP450 enzymes. Additional research, however, is now causing more questions to be asked in reference to the connections that chemicals like Glyphosate may have in the inhibition of proper CYP450 performance and, thus, in the uptick in mass shootings.

VLA COMMENT: This cutting edge information. Mass shootings, suicides, adverse reactions to vaccines, Autism, chronic illness, diabetes, obesity, asthma…are the results of the body not being able to detoxify toxins through its natural major detox channel – Cytochrome P450 . This field of focus on drug interactions on the body is called Pharmacogenetics. Education amongst the medical profession has been suppressed by the pharmacuetical industry. Yet all classifications physicians today are prescribing medications without understand the status of the individuals ability to metablolize these drugs and rid them from the body. For example, Pediatricians have prescribed drugs such as paxil, prozac, etc to over 275,000 children 0-1 year old. 10,000 toddlers are on psyche drugs. 25% of American children are on psyche drugs. Ritalin and Adderall, amphetamine drugs saturate our schools. Children have to line at camp in the morning to get their daily dosage.
A simple test to determine an individuals metabolic status has not been made standard of care although knowledge of this drug interaction causing suicidal and homicidal ideations is over 15 years old. More over, there are a variety of psyche drugs that are labeled as causing “suicidal ideations” (A self blame syndrome), but the “H” word is not mentioned ( homicide (an outer “blame” syndrome).
This labeling suggests that the manufacturers are aware of the variance in the ability of individuals to metabolize their drugs. Respiridal, for example, now includes Cytochrome P450 channels of detox in their package inserts. But who reads them?
It is further interesting to note that the cytochrome is “maturing”. This poses the question of how do infants one hour old, 2 months old, 6 months old metabolize toxins such as mercury and other ingredients in vaccines containing hormones, toxins; have not been studied for carcinogenic or mutagenic effects; are environmental pollutants, and other xenobiotics, all of which are metabolized by CYP450 enzymes. It is also worth mentioning that glutathione which is ultra depleted in children with Autism is also regulated by this Cytochrome.
As the author points out, as with human life, plant life also contains this mechanism of detoxification involving Cytochrome P450. Monsanto patents reveal that Cytochrome P450 is key to their Round Up (Glysophate) herbicide, the killing of natural plant life on behalf of the survival of their patented genetically manipulated companion seeds.

On June 30, 2014, the Court of Appeals handed down a landmark decision, ruling that New York municipalities have the right to keep fracking out of their borders, a victory for Dryden and communities across the state. The town of Dryden had fought fracking. And, at long last, they had won.
“I thought the industry was so powerful and that there was nothing I could do,” said McRae. “Then I learned there was something I could do just by talking to my neighbors.” (in Dryden, New York)
“The town has a very strong case. Previous courts have ruled that localities retain their longstanding power to regulate land use, including by prohibiting industrial activities such as gas development in their communities. We’ll do everything we can to ensure this victory stands.”
After Dryden passed their ban more than 170 other towns in New York followed suit. The fate of those towns—and many more that hoped to pass bans—hung in the balance as the case advanced through the legal system.
As the Dryden case advanced, winning in two lower courts, other communities started to take action. In addition to the more than 170 towns in New York, communities in Colorado, Pennsylvania, Texas, Ohio and California have all taken action to protect their local communities from fracking.
Attorney Goldberg (Deborah Goldberg, EarthJustice.org, argues before the Court of Appeals on June 3, 2014) argued that the New York State Legislature had not, in a 1981 law, granted the oil and gas industry the right to override long-held zoning powers of municipalities. “The idea that this industry would get the extreme and unprecedented right that no other industry has ever received in the state of New York simply because we want to promote the oil and gas industry” makes no sense, she said. “We’re not promoting it at all costs.” Read more…

The Supreme Court struck a major blow in favor of digital privacy Wednesday by ruling unanimously that police generally need a warrant before searching the cellphone or personal electronic device of a person arrested.
In a sweeping opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts resoundingly rejected arguments that searches of digital devices for information are comparable to searches law enforcement officers often conduct for contraband after making an arrest. Read more:
VLA comment: At the end…if these 1500 fuel rods are not successfully removed and #4 plant is distressed the radiation will be released. If another crisis occurs for building 4 it would take only 40 days to fully cover North American and another month to make its way to South America. At current rates the pacific ocean will be completely radiated in six years. Dr. Perrow speaks about the situation about 75% in.
Just before her first birthday in April 2010, Saba was given a 0.25ml dose of Fluvax by her doctor. She had severe febrile convulsions and suffered a profound acquired brain injury, leaving her a quadriplegic with limited vision.
In his court orders yesterday, judge Michael Barker said her disabilities had been caused by the vaccination, leaving her with a shortened life expectancy and requiring 24-hour care for life. Read more…
FLU VAX MANUFACTURER ADDS BLACK BOX WARNING (too late for Saba)
“Health professionals are advised to be aware of the Indications, Contraindications and Precautions associated with bioCSL Fluvax, in particular that the product should not be used in children under 5 years of age and careful considerations of the benefit/risk profile should be undertaken when considering vaccinating children aged 5 to 9 years”.
VLA Comment: Do you think the pediatrician didn’t read the package insert?” You cannot trust your physicians any longer. They can not possible have knowledge of the vast amount of drugs now marketed. Do your own research!
A Warren County nurse was unfairly denied unemployment benefits after she was fired for refusing a flu shot without claiming a religious or medical exemption, a New Jersey appeals court ruled today.
The three-judge panel wrote that the hospital’s policy of allowing religious or medical exemptions to the flu shot requirement “unconstitutionally discriminated against” plaintiff June Valent by rejecting her refusal to be vaccinated for secular reasons. read more…
