Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles manufactured for use in Iraq and Afghanistan at a cost of half a million dollars or more, are now being distributed to police outfits across the united states under the guise of the misnamed ‘war on terrorism.’ Just who are the terrorists?
On Saturday, Nov. 09th, Pete and Garret, on the road with the Police Accountability Tour, joined some of the good folks involved with NW Indiana Cop Block and stopped by the Merrillville police outfit to inquire about the need for a 32,000-lb. military vehicle in the community.

State health officials are encouraging Hoosiers [residents of the state of Indiana] to take steps to protect themselves at county and 4H fairs around the state this summer  following detection of 4 cases of variant influenza A(H3N2)v. All individuals visited the Grant County Agricultural Fair, 16-22 Jun 2013, prior to illness, and at least 2 had contact with swine. Variant influenza A(H3N2)v was identified in Indiana last year, with a total of 138 cases in 2012. The Indiana State Department of Health and the Grant County Health Department continue to investigate these cases. Human infections with (H3N2)v are rare but have most commonly occurred after close proximity to live infected pigs, such as working with them in barns and livestock exhibits at fairs. Influenza viruses are not transmitted by eating pork and pork products. According to the State Board of Animal Health, 13 pigs at the fair tested positive for H3N2. It is not uncommon for pigs to be infected with swine influenza viruses but not show any signs of illness. If ill with influenza they typically recover. “Fairs are a great way to get outdoors, have some fun and learn about agriculture,” said State Health Commissioner William VanNess, MD “If you plan to attend a fair this summer, just be sure to wash your hands frequently and avoid taking food into areas where animals are kept.” Symptoms of variant influenza A include: fever, cough, sore throat, chills, headache and muscle aches. Diarrhea and nausea may occur in children. Symptoms can begin approximately one to four days after being exposed to the illness and last from two to seven days.
As several county fairs will open in the next few weeks, State health officials are increasing surveillance for influenza-like illness. “We are increasing our surveillance so we can learn more about this virus and because antiviral treatment is most effective if given within 48 hours,” said Dr VanNess. “It’s important to contact your health care provider if you begin experiencing flu-like symptoms.” And if you have visited a fair or been around animals, let your health care provider know. Influenza antiviral drugs can treat infection with (H3N2)v and quick treatment is especially important for people who are at high risk of serious flu complications, including the very young, the elderly, people with chronic health conditions like asthma, diabetes, and heart disease and pregnant women. Visiting animal exhibits is fun and educational, and Hoosiers are reminded to follow some simple safety steps to prevent illness. Wash hands with soap and water before and after petting or touching any animal. Never eat, drink or put anything in your mouth when visiting animal areas, and avoid face-to-face contact with animals. People at high risk for flu complications should avoid close contact with swine in the fair setting particularly.
While influenza is not an uncommon diagnosis in pigs, the State Board of Animal Health encourages swine owners to contact a veterinarian if their animals show signs consistent with flu, including coughing, respiratory illness, off-feed, and fever. Most county fairs have a private veterinary practitioner on call for on-site assistance. Since there is no vaccine available for people to protect against this (H3N2)v virus, the best way to prevent infection with variant influenza is to avoid sources of exposure to the virus. As always good hygiene and other everyday preventive actions are important to take as well. Wash your hands frequently. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve or elbow. Avoid contact with people or animals that are ill. Stay home if you develop influenza symptoms and contact your health care provider. In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 309 infections with (H3N2)v in the United States. According to the CDC, most of these infections resulted in mild illness, though 16 people were hospitalized and one person died. Most of the people who were hospitalized and the person who died had one or more high risk conditions.
A(H3N2)v (Fujian flu, human)
Bacteria and viruses that can cause severe to fatal disease in humans, but for which vaccines or other treatments exist, such as anthrax, West Nile virus, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, SARS virus, variola virus (smallpox), tuberculosis, typhus, Rift Valley fever, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, yellow fever, and malaria. Among parasites Plasmodium falciparum, which causes Malaria, and Trypanosoma cruzi, which causes trypanosomiasis, also come under this level.
Symptoms of variant influenza A include: fever, cough, sore throat, chills, headache and muscle aches. Diarrhea and nausea may occur in children. Symptoms can begin approximately one to four days after being exposed to the illness and last from two to seven days.

Officials remain baffled as to how a dark, slick substance that forced dozens of swimmers out of the water at a northwest Indiana beach mysteriously vanished. “They checked the beach, and they can’t find any evidence of it,” Indiana Department of Environmental Management spokesman Barry Sneed told ABCNews.com. “Authorities figure it may have sunk, or moved farther north. It’s a strange phenomenon.” Swimmers notified law enforcement authorities that a dark-colored residue stretching nearly a mile long on Lake Michigan had appeared on the surface of the water at Porter Beach in Porter, Ind., Monday afternoon, Sneed said. Porter Fire Department Deputy Chief Jay Craig told ABCNews.com that when he arrived at the lake the water looked slick with what appeared to be oil. Upon further inspection, the substance was a gun-metal gray with metal flakes in it. Craig said you could tell how deep someone had been in the water depending on where their bodies were stained with the dark residue. Officials shut down the beach as the Coast Guard, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources and the National Park Service were called in to help identify the slime. The appearance of the unidentifiable slick forced the closure of five northern Indiana beaches on Lake Michigan, Sneed said. Indiana Dunes State Park remains closed as a result of strong waves and rip tides, but other beaches in the area have issued a swim at your own risk advisory. Meanwhile, officials work to determine what the mysterious substance was and where it could have gone. While authorities worried that the sheen could spread east toward Michigan City, Ind., Sneed said the substance was nowhere to be found this morning. Sneed said that while preliminary testing of water samples indicated the mystery sheen might have been a food additive that was also used in fertilizer, this morning’s reading revealed it might have been a type of acid. While the tests yield variable results, samples were sent to a lab for further analysis, Sneed said.
This does not included biological hazard category.
Surfer: Chemical Slicks Common On NW Indiana Beaches
June 19, 2013 9:13 AM
CHICAGO (CBS) – Environmental authorities in Indiana said preliminary results have found that an additive used in food and fertilizer and a metal cleaning agent were in the slick found on the lake this week. Someone who spends a lot of time on the lake doesn’t believe it was an isolated incident.
“It’s been a dirty week for Lake Michigan,” said Basil Tydings, an East Coast transplant who lives in the Chicago area because of the lake.
WBBM’s Mike Krauser reports Tydings is a surfer and stand-up paddleboarder who spends a lot of time on Lake Michigan, including at the Ogden Dunes in Porter County, Ind.
“Sometimes the lake water tastes like the air smells,” he said.
Indiana state officials banned swimming along parts of the lakefront and advised swimmers of possible contamination, after a slick first believed to be oil was spotted near Porter Beach on Monday. Officials later determined the substance was a combination of D-gluconic acid, which is used as a metal cleaner, and tricalcium orthophosphate, an additive in food and fertilizers.
Officials have said it’s not highly toxic, and they were working to determine exactly where it came from. The Indiana Department of Environmental Management said a nearby manufacturer makes tricalcium orthophosphate, but it was not clear if that company was the source.

ST. LOUIS — Flood fighters from small Mississippi River hamlets to the suburbs of Chicago staged a feverish battle Friday to hold back raging rivers, after days of torrential rains soaked much of the Midwest.
Mississippi River communities in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri are expected to see significant flooding – some near-record levels – by the weekend, a sharp contrast to just two months ago when the river was approaching record lows. Michigan, Wisconsin and Indiana had flooding, too. All told, dozens of Midwestern rivers were well over their banks after rains that began Wednesday dumped up to 6 inches of new water on already saturated soil.
In Quincy, Ill., the normally slow to swell Mississippi River rose nearly 10 feet in 36 hours, National Weather Service hydrologist Mark Fuchs said. One bridge in the town about 120 miles north of St. Louis was closed Friday, leaving one open.
“That’s pretty amazing,” Fuchs said of the fast-rising river. “It’s just been skyrocketing.”
Smaller rivers in Illinois seemed to be causing the worst of the flooding. In suburban Chicago, which got up to 7 inches of rain in a 24-hour period ending Thursday, record levels of water were moving through the Des Plaines River past heavily populated western suburbs and into the Illinois River to the south.
As many as 1,500 residents of the northern Illinois city of Marseilles were evacuated Thursday night when fears of a levee breach were heightened as seven barges broke free from a towing vessel and came to rest against a dam on the Illinois River.
And in the central Illinois town of London Mills, the swollen Spoon River topped a levee, forcing about half of the 500 residents to evacuate. Police Chief Scott Keithley said some homes were half under water, and abandoned cars were sent floating in the torrent of water.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI — Patty Moyer offloaded a freshly packed sandbag onto a pallet Sunday and stood up panting, sweating under a heavy coat and headband as she worked with roughly 300 volunteers in Grand Rapids.Summoned by city leaders working to minimize impacts of a downtown under siege by a Grand River swelling past its brim, Moyer had been at work for hours with a dozen members of the Forest Hills Crew Team.
The Grand River is expected to crest at multiple locations throughout Greater Grand Rapids on Sunday, particularly downtown and in Comstock Park, where high water forced residents to flee their waterlogged homes in droves.
Such dire predictions prompted city leaders to ask for help filling tens of thousands of sandbags for residents and businesses.
“We were kind of torn because there’s flooding in Ada and Lowell and Grand Rapids,” Moyer said after schlepping a sandbag to a pallet. “One of our (team) board members … heard that we could come down and fill bags, so we jumped on it as quickly as we could.”
At the Grand Rapids Public Works building, 201 Market Ave. SW, the crew team worked amidst what city leaders estimated was 300 volunteers out since 8 a.m. to fill sandbags that will be used to shore up flooded areas along the river. The work will continue all day.
It was the highest turnout so far after three days spent packing 40,000 sandbags that have been dispersed to problem spots throughout the city, including riverside structures downtown such as the Grand Rapids Public Museum.
Months ago I wrote about how Occupy Wall Street was raising money so they could buy up debt at random and pay it off, in a brilliant campaign of radical agorism.
The effort that I am talking about is called “Rolling Jubilee” and the stated mission on their website is to:
“Buy debt for pennies on the dollar, but instead of collecting it, we abolish it. We cannot buy specific individuals’ debt – instead, we help liberate debtors at random through a campaign of mutual support, good will, and collective refusal.”
This idea has brought about many success stories. The group recently announced through their website that they erased over $1 Million in debt from emergency rooms in Kentucky and Indiana.
The average debtor owed around $900 and we will be abolishing the debt of over 1,000 people! We are sending the letters to the debtors as we type this. We are very concerned with the privacy of debtors, but if any of them come forward and want to share their stories, we will make them public. This will be the second in a series of purchases of medical debt. For each one, we will announce it on this blog with extended details.
We’ve also been working long and hard to make sure our finances and operations are as transparent as possible. The all-volunteer Board of Directors, along with the RJ sub-committees (tech, messaging & debt buying) and countless activists throughout the Strike Debt and Occupy Wall Street networks have been working diligently to ensure the Rolling Jubilee accomplishes its mission with dignity, transparency and political effectiveness.
As a friend, supporter and also a critic of the occupy wall street movement over the past year and a half, it has been exciting and interesting to see the loose knit, decentralized movement transform and grow into many different branches that are taking a more local and decentralized approach than we saw from the protests last year.
The patent case pits the future of biotechnology innovation against high farm prices. For now, it looks like innovation is winning.
WASHINGTON — Monsanto’s patent for genetically modified soybeans appears safe in the Supreme Court’s hands. And that’s good news for innovations in biotechnology, computer software and other self-replicating products.
The biggest mystery arising from the justices’ 70-minute consideration Tuesday of an Indiana farmer’s challenge to Monsanto, in fact, was why they had agreed to hear the case at all, since two lower courts already had ruled for Monsanto.
In a classic case of David vs. Goliath, 75-year-old Vernon Hugh Bowman is challenging the agribusiness giant’s patent on soybeans that are resistant to the weed killer Roundup. He bought his first batch of “Roundup Ready” seeds from Monsanto but then bought a cheaper mixture from a grain elevator that included some Monsanto seeds.
It’s the third generation of seeds that’s at issue in the case, because Bowman then began replanting his own herbicide-resistant seeds — and that violated Monsanto’s patent, the company claims.
From Tuesday’s oral arguments, it didn’t seem Bowman had a vote in the room. “You cannot make copies of a patented invention,” said Justice Stephen Breyer.
It’s for that reason Monsanto has required farmers using its seeds to sign an agreement promising not to save and replant harvested seeds. But even if there was no license, the justices seemed to doubt Bowman’s right to create new generations of identical seed under patent law.
Bowman’s attorney, Mark Walters, argued that Monsanto’s patent rights were exhausted after the farmer bought his second round of seeds from the grain elevator. If that was not the case, he said, every grain elevator would be violating the patent, because Monsanto seeds are ubiquitous.
Besides, Walters argued, Bowman’s use of grain elevator seeds “is never going to be a threat to Monsanto’s business.”
Michael Pollan and others on what Roundup-resistant weeds mean for American agriculture.
But not this year.
On a recent afternoon here, Mr. Anderson watched as tractors crisscrossed a rolling field — plowing and mixing herbicides into the soil to kill weeds where soybeans will soon be planted.
Just as the heavy use of antibiotics contributed to the rise of drug-resistant supergerms, American farmers’ near-ubiquitous use of the weedkiller Roundup has led to the rapid growth of tenacious new superweeds.
To fight them, Mr. Anderson and farmers throughout the East, Midwest and South are being forced to spray fields with more toxic herbicides, pull weeds by hand and return to more labor-intensive methods like regular plowing.
“We’re back to where we were 20 years ago,” said Mr. Anderson, who will plow about one-third of his 3,000 acres of soybean fields this spring, more than he has in years. “We’re trying to find out what works.”
Farm experts say that such efforts could lead to higher food prices, lower crop yields, rising farm costs and more pollution of land and water.
“It is the single largest threat to production agriculture that we have ever seen,” said Andrew Wargo III, the president of the Arkansas Association of Conservation Districts.
The first resistant species to pose a serious threat to agriculture was spotted in a Delaware soybean field in 2000. Since then, the problem has spread, with 10 resistant species in at least 22 states infesting millions of acres, predominantly soybeans, cotton and corn.
The superweeds could temper American agriculture’s enthusiasm for some genetically modified crops. Soybeans, corn and cotton that are engineered to survive spraying with Roundup have become standard in American fields. However, if Roundup doesn’t kill the weeds, farmers have little incentive to spend the extra money for the special seeds.
Roundup — originally made by Monsanto but now also sold by others under the generic name glyphosate — has been little short of a miracle chemical for farmers. It kills a broad spectrum of weeds, is easy and safe to work with, and breaks down quickly, reducing its environmental impact.
Sales took off in the late 1990s, after Monsanto created its brand of Roundup Ready crops that were genetically modified to tolerate the chemical, allowing farmers to spray their fields to kill the weeds while leaving the crop unharmed. Today, Roundup Ready crops account for about 90 percent of the soybeans and 70 percent of the corn and cotton grown in the United States.
But farmers sprayed so much Roundup that weeds quickly evolved to survive it. “What we’re talking about here is Darwinian evolution in fast-forward,” Mike Owen, a weed scientist at Iowa State University, said.
Say you’re a Hollywood studio who spent a couple hundred million dollars on a blockbuster movie. Someone buys it on DVD, and then proceeds to copy the DVD and sell those copies at a profit.
That would be against the law.
Can you make the same argument about buying patented seeds to grow a crop, and then keeping some of that first crop to reap seeds and grow a second crop? A third?
The United States Supreme Court will decide that in a case involving a 75-year-old farmer from Indiana named Vernon Bowman. Monsanto sued Bowman in 2007, claiming the farmer has for years used seeds reaped from a first crop of Monsanto Roundup Ready soybean seeds to grow another crop.
Monsanto said that violates its patent, as farmers sign an agreement when they buy the seeds to only use them once. The resulting crop can be sold for things like feed or oil, not to create another generation of seeds.
From Monsanto’s perspective, what Bowman has done is like the farming version of Napster. From the farmer’s perspective, to force him to buy new seeds every year is a monopoly, and Monsanto’s patent should “expire” after the first crop.
Monsanto won in lower court, but Bowman has appealed, and in a move that caught corporate America off guard, the Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case next Tuesday.

Vigo County has now seen over 84 cases of the varicella-zoster virus (chicken pox) — marked by itchy blisters on the body, fever, stomach ache and headache — since September and the count is currently well over 100.
“Vigo County usually has less than 10 cases a year; however, since the end of September, Vigo County has reported 84 cases which would meet the definition of an unusual occurrence of disease,” Dr. Joan Duwve, M.D., of the Indiana State Department of Health, told the Tribune-Star. “Prompt identification, investigation and control of chickenpox outbreaks are important. Even mild cases can be contagious.”
To cover-up the wild increase for the disease, public health officials are blaming one unvaccinated child as the cause despite 97 percent of vaccinated children contracting chicken pox. More than 85 percent of those vaccinated received FULL VACCINATIONS.
The Indiana Coalition for Vaccination Choice reported on their Facebook page:
Placed another call to the Indiana State Department of Health. Was able to reach the epidemiologist working the chicken pox outbreak. There are a total of 92 cases so far. Only 3 were never vaccinated. 10 had received one vaccine and 79 were fully vaccinated. They are seeing fewer lesions in the fully vaccinated. Zero deaths. Possibly one hospitalization but not sure off the top of their head. Zero complications from chicken pox. We were told that only one chicken pox vaccine was supposed to provide lifelong immunity but this did not turn out to be the case. A booster was added and yet we are seeing a very high rate of fully vaccinated children contracting chicken pox. We asked if another booster will be mandated and told possibly. We asked about vaccine failures and were told this is not vaccine failure because the severity of lesions in the fully vaccinated was less than if never vaccinated and that no vaccine is 100% effective. We were told that if vaccines save one life they are worth it. We asked how many children died from chicken pox before the vaccine. This epidemiologist was unsure.
It’s just another example how vaccines fail the population. Why would any person agree to an injection of harmful chemicals for a claimed preventive measure that DOES NOT EVEN WORK?
Jane Seward of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia previously commented on case where an outbreak in 23 children also began with a child who had been vaccinated, contradicting the belief that such ”breakthrough” cases are not contagious, Seward noted.
Seward said she cannot yet explain why the vaccine may have been ineffective in specific groups of youngsters. “We’d like to really understand what factors came together to produce it,” Seward added. “We’re not dismissing it.”
The researchers evaluated an outbreak of chickenpox in New Hampshire. A total of 88 parents returned a questionnaire that aimed to gauge prior chickenpox illness and vaccination among the children. In all, 25 children came down with chickenpox between December 2000 and January 2001. The researchers sourced the outbreak to a 4-year-old child who had been vaccinated for chickenpox 3 years prior to contracting the illness.
The child infected about half of his classmates who had no prior history of chickenpox infection. At the time of the outbreak, roughly 73% of kids old enough for chickenpox vaccine had received it, the report indicated.
During an outbreak of chickenpox in Minnesota in the fall of 2002, more than half the children who became infected had been vaccinated with the varicella vaccine.
Dr. Brian R. Lee, at the Minnesota Department of Health in Minneapolis, and his colleagues investigated the outbreak that involved 55 children among 319 attending an elementary school in northern Minnesota.
Vigo County School Corporation Officials Confirmed Thursday an outbreak of chickenpox at one Terre Haute elementary school. “Our nursing staff confirmed five cases of chickenpox at Farrington Grove, which is the definition of an “outbreak”", school officials said. The outbreak will force administrators to vaccinate more than 50 students. School officials plan to work with the Indiana State Department of Health and the Vigo County School corporation to create a plan to get the students the immunizations they need. School officials say they also plan to check the health of the school’s faculty and staff. “The definition of an outbreak is five or more cases under the age of 13 or three or more cases over the age of 13″, said the press release. “If a child has had no shot (s) against chickenpox and parent/guardian refuses, the child will be excluded from school,” said the release. “If a child has had one shot and the parent/guardian is willing to get the second dose, the child will not be excluded from school.”
Bacteria and viruses that cause only mild disease to humans, or are difficult to contract via aerosol in a lab setting, such as hepatitis A, B, and C, influenza A, Lyme disease, salmonella, mumps, measles, scrapie, dengue fever, and HIV. “Routine diagnostic work with clinical specimens can be done safely at Biosafety Level 2, using Biosafety Level 2 practices and procedures. Research work (including co-cultivation, virus replication studies, or manipulations involving concentrated virus) can be done in a BSL-2 (P2) facility, using BSL-3 practices and procedures. Virus production activities, including virus concentrations, require a BSL-3 (P3) facility and use of BSL-3 practices and procedures”, see Recommended Biosafety Levels for Infectious Agents.
The chief medical officer of the Indiana State Department of Health says western Indiana’s Vigo County is experiencing the largest known current outbreak of chickenpox in the U.S. Dr. Joan Duwve (DUH’-vee) told the Terre Haute Tribune-Star for a story this week that Vigo County usually has fewer than 10 cases per year but had had 84 since September. The Vigo County health Department has scaled back the number of cases after reporting more than 100 cases earlier in the week. Duwve says it’s not clear why the county is having such a large outbreak. Neighboring Parke County has had cases at one school. Vigo County School Corp. officials excluded 230 students from school last week because of the outbreak.
