Check out how, in the story below, headlined “Prison suicides rise to record level in England and Wales”, they tell you the numbers, but hold back from printing the percentages. It's because that would be more impactful, and so, as obstructionists, they’re hedging, by withholding them, to try to keep your eyes off the larger pattern, the bigger picture.

It’s okay, I did the math. It’s a 25% increase, in one year.

If “overcrowding and staff shortages” are driving the highest number of prison suicides since records began in 1978, as alleged, what’s up with this headline: “Number of suicides in England and Wales reaches 20-year high”? Which obviously has nothing to do with prison conditions?

You'll also notice that they don't say a word about how the 25% increase in prison-suicide maps against similar suicide increases outside the walls in the U.K., or similar increases in suicide rates across the pond, in the U.S.

Oh, and here’s another data point: “figures show number of female suicides rose sharply in 2015.” Why females? What's the variable?

Prison suicides rise to record level in England and Wales

1/26/2017

A record number of people killed themselves in prisons in England and Wales in 2016, figures show.

The Ministry of Justice said there were 119 self-inflicted deaths - 29 more than the previous year and the highest number since records began in 1978.

Last year, thousands of staff walked out in protest over health and safety concerns, amid claims the prison system was "in meltdown" because of overcrowding and staff shortages.

A number of serious disturbances also erupted in jails.

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. That’s why a headline below from the U.K. reads “MYSTERY CRASH Young woman killed after car smashes into wall at seaside car park in Westbourne, Bournemouth.”

In the U.S., car accident fatalities have been rising every quarter for two straight years. While helicopter moms sit in locked, running cars at bus stops, nervously waiting to hand-transfer their children to the bus, outside of any trend documenting rising harm to youths, quarter, by quarter, by quarter.

In the passage that follows, you can see how the negative trend is increasing in speed and magnitude, up 7.2% over the entirety of 2015, and up 8% in just the first nine months of 2016:

“In 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation reported the largest gain in vehicle fatalities in 50 years, with an increase of 7.2 percent for the entire year. In 2016, comparing the DOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Traffic Safety Facts: Crash Stats report for first nine months to 2016 to the same months in 2015, fatalities have gone up another eight percent.

The folks in charge are trying desperately to keep you from figuring out the MYSTERY. Check how they sandwich the real reason right between two bullshit reasons:

“Other possible explanations for vehicle crash fatality increases include warmer weather, distracted drivers, and possibly a relationship with the legalization of marijuana in some states.”

And “distraction” is a meme, wherein the Ssmart phone that ‘distracted’' those dying in car crashes sn’t even mentioned. And neither is the fact that cell phones – yes, even hand’s-free units - make you drive worse than if you were drunk.

All of this isn’t going to convince anyone who wishes to remain asleep, who wishes to ignore the matter. That’s why reasons as stupid as “warmer weather” are put forward, at all. It’s just another plausible-deniability straw for the subconscious to grasp, vs. a person making a choice to engage their conscious mind and take personal responsibility for the situation.

We figured out drinking three martini’s at lunch and then going back to work wasn’t an entirely good idea. So it’s my hope that we’ll get up and past this as a species, soon enough.

 

 

August 22, 2016 – Maternal Mortality Rates Fall Drastically Worldwide, While America’s Rates Rise

 

October 10, 2016 - Reports from officials show that car accidents were much more frequent this year if compared to previous ones. As a result, the rate of people who died in car crashes is also higher.

Officials announce that the death rate related to car accidents in 2016 can only be compared to that in 1966. It is only then when safety on the public roads was such a concern. There is an increase of more than ten percent in the mortality rates reported for this year if compared to those in 2015.

 

December 21, 2016 – Melanoma Incidence and Mortality Rising in the US

Both the incidence of and mortality from invasive melanoma in the United States have been rising during the past few decades, despite efforts to raise awareness and increase primary prevention and early detection.

The authors reported on melanoma incidence rates 6 years ago (Arch Dermatol. 2010;146:318). A comparison of rates showed that from 2009 to 2016, the incidence rates per 100,000 population grew from 22.2 to 23.6. The current lifetime risk of developing invasive melanoma is now 1 in 54, a jump from 1 in 58.

(That’s a six percent increase in seven years – they didn’t print the percentage, as that would have been more impactful, so they hedged and omitted it. – ed)

"There does appear to be an increase in the incidence of melanoma in the US," said Dr Glazer. "Some have speculated that this incidence increase is due to the detection of early/in situ lesions alone, but we are seeing increases in all thicknesses of melanoma as well as in the mortality rate associated with melanoma.

 

January 16, 2017 – It's not just miles traveled: Something else causes rising U.S vehicle deaths

Federal officials are looking to the private sector for help understanding the continued rise in motor vehicle fatality rates. For the second year in a row, deaths from vehicle crashes are rising, even accounting for more vehicle miles, according to CNN.  Full-year figures for 2016 won’t be available until late March, but the first nine months indicate the troublesome trend is continuing.

In 2015, the U.S. Department of Transportation reported the largest gain in vehicle fatalities in 50 years, with an increase of 7.2 percent for the entire year. In 2016, comparing the DOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Traffic Safety Facts: Crash Stats report for first nine months to 2016 to the same months in 2015, fatalities have gone up another eight percent. In 2015, there were 25,808 fatalities January through September and in the same months in 2016, the number rose to 27,875.

The numbers are rising each quarter. The third quarter of 2016 was the eighth consecutive period with increased fatalities compared to the same quarters in the previous year.

The first thought many have is that due to the improving economy U.S. drivers are traveling more. Miles traveled in the nine-month period went up by 70 billion and that number could be a contributing factor but doesn’t account for the entire increase. Citing preliminary figures from the Federal Highway Administration, total vehicle miles traveled January through September in 2016 were up about three percent.

During the recent recession, miles traveled dropped and fatality rates were at all-time lows. With low gas prices and a better economy, more miles with a concomitant rise in deaths were expected, but not to the degree that occurred. NHTSA analysis of the 2015 data showed much of the increase that year involved fatalities of pedestrians and cyclists — both motor- and pedal-powered.

Other possible explanations for vehicle crash fatality increases include warmer weather, distracted drivers, and possibly a relationship with the legalization of marijuana in some states. A Washington state study showed a large increase in traffic fatality victims with marijuana in their systems, CNN reported. Inconsistent crash victim drug testing in different states makes it difficult to be sure about a connection with marijuana or other drug use and the overall increase in traffic deaths.

The DOT is reaching out, looking for information and analysis. Dan Morgan, the DOT chief data officer, said, “We hope we can find some data sources out there in the private sector that can help us understand what’s happening on our roads.”

 

January 17, 2017 - Maternal Mortality on a Troubling Rise

Nearly a decade after the United States last published official statistics on how many women die from complications related to pregnancy and childbirth, new UMD research reveals an alarming rise in maternal mortality nationwide.

The study, published by Obstetrics & Gynecology and led by Marian MacDorman of the Maryland Population Research Center on campus, estimates the maternal mortality rate in 48 states and Washington, D.C., increased 26.6 percent from 2000–14. Deaths increased from 18.8 per 100,000 live births to 23.8.

The U.S. has not published official data since 2007 because states unevenly implemented federally recommended revisions to death certificate questions dealing with pregnancy. MacDorman believes this lack of updated data is problematic, especially in light of a United Nations goal to reduce the worldwide maternal mortality rate by three-quarters.

(They managed to suppress the data for almost a decade, “because states unevenly implemented federally recommended revisions to death certificate questions.” Desperately trying to obfuscate the  27% rise in mortality in just under fifteen years. – ed)

“To know and to not know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy is impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy. To forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself.”

September 6, 2012 – 290% Increased Risk of Brain Tumor After 10 Years of Cellphone Use

May 31, 2016 ... The issue of whether brain tumor rates are static or rising is more complicated than Kolata would have us believe. ...

June 21, 2016 – University degree linked to increased risk of brain tumour diagnosis

 

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishment wants to lie about, well, basically anything.

That’s why a story below entitled “University degree linked to increased risk of brain tumour diagnosis” tells us “the researchers say they are puzzled about the link, but say it could be to do with educated people being more likely to see medical help if they think something is wrong.”

In that story, we learn that men with a university education are 19 per cent more likely to discover a glioma (a type of cancerous tumor arising in the cells around neurons) than those who left school at 16.

Wait, what? Nineteen percent? That’s not a small number. That’s two more men out of every ten afflicted with a brain tumor on the University campus, versus those who were not in that environment. If it said that on the application, would you enter the University?

What’s the variable? What happened to the brains of those men in those three few years? What was it in the University environment that caused their brains to change in that negative way?

The article goes on to document that University graduates who are female have a four percent higher incidence of brain tumors than their male counterparts. Why? What’s the variable, women, vs. men?

A similar association was also found for those in professional jobs. Compared with men in manual roles, having a professional or managerial role was associated with a 20 per cent heightened risk of glioma and a 50 per cent heightened risk of acoustic neuroma – a type of non-cancerous brain tumour.”

So whatever it is, it’s present in the University, and it is in professional settings. And it kills, or mortally afflicts, between two to five out of ten more males in those settings, than males not in those settings. What is drastically increasing brain tumors in both the University and Professional settings?

The risk of glioma was also 26 per cent higher among women in professional and managerial roles than it was for women in manual roles, while the risk of meningioma was 14 per cent higher.”

Okay, wow – women are six percent higher re: glioma than their professional male peers, and 14% higher re: meningioma than their female peers in manual trades. What's the difference, re: women, re: gloom a, women, vs. men? What's the variable? And why was 'meningioma' mentioned for women, but not for men, at all?

So we’re clear, professional women have a 64% higher risk of acoustic neuroma, of brain tumors, than women in manual roles. Can you see how they took special care to cut up the “64% heightened risk of acoustic neuroma” figure, re: women? They made you add “50%” in one paragraph, with “14 percent higher” in the next.

“Welcome to Millco Incorporated. Here’s your newest-generation iPhone (in GOLD!), and your laptop – the office has wifi – by the way, I need to let you know that at least half of you in this office will be getting brain tumors driven by just sitting here in this office, versus those working in manual trades. But don’t worry, you’ll be so happy with the convenience and functionality of the devices, and with this whole “professional” lifestyle, you won’t even notice!”

Graduates are more likely to be diagnosed with brain tumours, a study has shown.

Men with a university level education lasting at least three years are 19 per cent more likely to discover a glioma—a type of cancerous tumour arising the cells around neurons – than those who left school at 16.

For women the chance of being diagnosed with a tumour was even higher, a 23 per cent increased risk for the most educated.

 A similar association was also found for those in professional jobs. Compared with men in manual roles, having a professional or  managerial role was associated with a 20 per cent heightened risk of glioma and a 50 per cent heightened risk of acoustic neuroma – a type of non-cancerous brain tumour.

The risk of glioma was also 26 per cent higher among women in professional and managerial roles than it was for women in manual roles, while the risk of meningioma was 14 per cent higher.

The researchers say they are puzzled about the link, but say it could be to do with educated people being more likely to see medical help if they think something is wrong.

A previous study by Yale University has linked stress with tumour formation.

January 8, 2016 – In 2015, sales of vinyl records in the U.S. grew by an astounding 30 percent.

April 16, 2016 – Vinyl Record Sales At A 28 Year High | Fortune.com

April 21, 2016 – Early reports suggest vinyl sales are slowing in 2016 - The Vinyl Factory

July 22, 2016 – We've Passed Peak Vinyl – Here Comes The Collapse - Stereogum

December 6, 2016 - Vinyl album sales out-perform digital downloads for first time

January 3, 2017 – Vinyl sales rose 26% in 2016

 

The six quotes immediately above show you that the folks in charge are lying to you about basically everything, including vinyl record sales. As you assimilate those quotes, I’d ask you to remember that it wasn’t until just four years ago that sales of Ssmart phones, the Most Important Invention in History, passed those of flip phones.

The readership may not be surprised that I've never gotten rid of my vinyl, and I've never owned a Ssmart phone. Actually, I had to be browbeaten into getting a flip phone.

We learn in an article below that flip phone sales in the U.S. rose from 2014 to 2015 “by two million, to a total of 24.2 million.” That’s a 9% increase. I must note that they took special care to omit the percentage, as including it would have been more impactful. So I had to do the math.

While Gartner Group tells of a Ssmartphone decrease of 14.4% in 2015.

That would be a 24% swing, to the flip phone, away from the Ssmart phone.

In Japan, same years, 2014 to 2015, flip phones saw a 5.7% increase in sales, and smartphone shipments fell 5.3%. That’s an 11 point swing away from the Ssmart phone, back to the flip phone.

One headline below says “Smartphone Sales Continue To Tumble In 2016.” Wherein the meme word “tumble” is used to conjure a happy, running child who falls on grass, brushes off their knees, and runs forward carefree once again. That’s followed quickly by “The smartphone market has been declining recently, and it looks like the trend is poised to continue.”

Poised: “graceful and elegant bearing in a person. composure and dignity of manner. Archaic - balance; equilibrium.”

Excuse me while I hurl in the wastepaper basket. I wouldn’t consider myself or my business graceful, composed, dignified, elegant or balanced if my market share contracted 14% in a year.

2015 to 2016, Brazil: a million fewer smartphones sold, and a decline of about 12%. Mexico, also down 12%. April 28, 2016 – “Global Smartphone Shipments Decline 3 Percent in Q1 2016.” 4 times 3 is 12%.

It’s hard to get a clear picture, as they cut it up and compartmentalize it as best they can. Pulling back, speaking broadly, I’m seeing back-to-back years of double-digit decreases - sales down 20% in two years.

Once the public finally assimilates the concept that sending their children to college so they can pursue a professional career increases their risk of brain tumors from 20 to 50%, over those who pursue manual professions, people will admit that the cost/benefit just isn’t there on their admittedly-hyper-convenient Ssmart phone, or on the free wifi at the coffee shop, and they’ll put those things aside, like any other bad habit.

You’re quickly going to see “wi-fi free zones”. You're going to see Helicopter moms rotate their gunships and commence firing on this subject, that is after first going through Denial, Anger, Bargaining, etc.

I don’t think that a general, collective admission that simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices continuously transform what Wilhelm Reich called “Dead Orgone Radiation” to the positive is very far off, now.

“You can blow out a candle, but you can’t blow out a fire. Once the flames begin to catch, the wind will blow it higher.” That’s Peter Gabriel, from “Biko.”

The song ends “And the eyes of the world are watching now, watching now.”

Sign.jpg

 

 

I can’t decide if the great-news article that follows should go in this thread, or the “Positive Changes That Are Occurring” thread.

The headline reads “'Get off your phone': Hockley daycare touches nerves with cellphone sign”

The hedging against the positive trend is there, the slant against people pushing back is there, throughout the article. The sentence “The sign takes issue with parents not paying attention to their tots” uses the demeaning, diminishing, more-casual and off-hand term “tots”, wanting to avoid the stronger, more upright “the sign takes issue with parents not paying attention to their children.”

In the sentence that follows, you’ll see that, when the two positions or points-of-view are listed, the people pushing back are ranked second, are demeaned, diminished:

"I was surprised that they would be so bold," Mazurkewicz said, adding, "but also I liked it."

And that’s repeated again, right afterward, with the pushing-back position again being placed second:

Some parents said the daycare center doesn't have the right to publicly shame parents, others said the owners of the center are looking out for the well-being of their children.”

They throw in the bonus meme-word “shame”, which is about as hot in our society as “bully”, right now, in the subconscious-manipulation department.

But I hope it’s uplifting to you, as it is to me, that they are fighting a desperate rearguard action, which will soon turn to rout.

'Get off your phone': Hockley daycare touches nerves with cellphone sign

February 2, 2017

HOCKLEY, TX (KTRK) --

A Hockley daycare is stirring a lot of debate on social media after posting a sign directing parents to "get off your phone."

Juliana Farris Mazurkewicz told ABC News the sign went up in January, and that she thought it was "on point."

The sign takes issue with parents not paying attention to their tots, reading in part:

Your child is happy to see you! Are you happy to see your child?? We have seen children trying to hand their parents their work they completed and the parent is on the phone. We have heard a child say "Mommy, mommy, mommy..." and the parent is paying more attention to their phone than their own child. It is appalling.

"I was surprised that they would be so bold," Mazurkewicz said, adding, "but also I liked it."

Parents have taken up various opinions on Mazurkewicz's Facebook post.

Some parents said the daycare center doesn't have the right to publicly shame parents, others said the owners of the center are looking out for the well-being of their children.

Her husband, Jason Marzurkewicz, showed an amended sign on Facebook last night where the daycare center has added the words "Please" with a smile emoji to the note.

As I was stepping out of my car the other day on a street here in Pittsburgh, just down the street I heard a great “Boom!” I turned and saw that a car had driven at full speed directly into the back of another parked car, which was blessedly unoccupied at the time. There was no screech of brakes, just a sudden “Boom!”

A guy in the shop I was visiting came out, said “what happened?” I said “texting, I’m sure.” He replied “no doubt.”

Apparently, everybody knows it, as the most recent story I’ve appended below is headlined “Insurance Bills Rise as Texters Crash Cars.”

I shouldn’t be so generous, as the duplicitous author appends this right after the headline: “More drivers on the road + costly parts + texting = bigger claims

Can you see how they positioned the biggest force behind the increase last? That’s called ‘burying’ it.

Another story below says “Lower gas prices and increased motor-vehicle mileage combined with risky activities like speeding and driving while texting is proving deadly for American drivers.”

That’s the exact same exact tactic that I identified just above – they positioned the biggest force behind the increase last. That’s called ‘burying’ it. And, as followers of the Left-Hand-Path, they diabolically inverted it, saying “driving while texting” to avoid saying "texting while driving”, so that your brain and subconscious wouldn’t connect this perverted behavior to another, that being “drinking while driving”, and also to position texting as the most important thing - vs. driving. And, as a bonus, to position texting as the primary thing, Preciousss.

The story goes on to describe “a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades.” So, driver miles increased 14% in two years, I’m to gather, my devious Illuminist friends?

p.s., the author hedged by saying “in more than five decades”, because “in more than 50 years” would have been stronger and more impactful.

As a bonus, they used the heroic, exciting word “jump” to describe a massive increase in deaths.

They KNOW that everyone knows. Which is why another article below says “Traffic fatalities are increasing at their fastest pace in a half-century, and it's not just smartphone use causing the spike.”

p.s., the author hedged by saying “at their fastest pace in a half-century”, because “a their fastest pace in 50 years” would have been stronger and more impactful.

They finished that sentence with the repugnant meme word “spike”, which implies numbers have shot up, but will shoot right back down again, forming a “spike” on the graph. It’s formulaic, part of a formula.

Here it is again: “April's 6-percent leap in auto insurance prices was the biggest monthly spike since 2003.”

As a bonus, they used the heroic, exciting word “leap” to describe a crushing rate hike.

That story sagely pontificates “Americans are driving more, thanks to rising employment and cheaper gasoline. But that also means they're getting into more accidents — and that's leading to higher insurance rates.”

There! Case closed! Oh, wait, they buried this down in the next paragraph - in an entirely different paragraph: 

Of course, it's not just a matter of more people cruising the roads. Unsafe behavior also may be contributing to a national accident problem.”

May be contributing, may be contributing. Hedging, hedging, always hedging. They pull even further away from the subject by calling it (generally) “unsafe behavior”, vs. (specifically), “texting and driving.”

Do you think that fevered, formulaic conjuring by a wholly-controlled-and-coopted Media is going to stop this subject from reaching wider awareness for very much longer? I don’t.

But I’m not going to wait around for this disease, this parasite to expire on its own – I’m taking action, right here, right now, and I’d ask you to consider doing so, also, if you have not already.

May 27, 2016 - Auto insurance rates rising at fastest rate in almost 13 years

April's 6-percent leap in auto insurance prices was the biggest monthly spike since 2003.

Americans are driving more, thanks to rising employment and cheaper gasoline. But that also means they're getting into more accidents — and that's leading to higher insurance rates.

Of course, it's not just a matter of more people cruising the roads. Unsafe behavior also may be contributing to a national accident problem, according to research released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. A February report by the group found about 87 percent of drivers engaged in at least one risky behavior while behind the wheel within the past month, including using cell phones or not wearing seat belts.

January 20, 2017 - Auto Insurance Rate Hikes Likely in 2016 – 2017

2015 was a difficult year for auto insurance companies. A huge rise in accidents and payouts, as well as a stagnant bond market have made it likely that carriers will be raising car insurance premiums for drivers in 2016 and 2017.

In the past year more drivers hit the road last year than ever before. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction though, and more drivers also led to more accidents happening--forcing the insurance companies to pay out unprecedented sums in claims.

The number of claims made in 2015 was so high that 14 of the 20 largest insurers saw their loss ratios, or the amount they paid toward claims out of each dollar of premiums, increased from 2014.

 

February 15, 2017 - 2016 Was the Deadliest Year on American Roads in Nearly a Decade

Lower gas prices and and increased motor-vehicle mileage combined with risky activities like speeding and driving while texting is proving deadly for American drivers.

New preliminary 2016 data shared Wednesday from the National Safety Council estimates that as many as 40,000 people died in motor vehicles crashes last year, a 6% rise from 2015. If those numbers bear out, it would be a 14% increase in deaths since 2014, the biggest two-year jump in more than five decades.

 

February 16, 2017 - Insurance Bills Rise as Texters Crash Cars

More drivers on the road + costly parts + texting = bigger claims.

At an investor conference last year, Tom Wilson, Allstate’s chief executive officer, said rising costs were partly the result of the economy’s expansion. More people commuting to work—and driving to vacations—means more cars on the road and more accidents. Then there’s distracted driving: Allstate said in February there’s a “striking” correlation between the rise in smartphone use and crashes. All told, vehicle-related deaths rose 8 percent in the first nine months of 2016 from the same period in 2015.

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is “we don’t know what the heck is going on”.

That’s why Marian MacDorman of the Maryland Population Research Center said “There is a decade where we don’t know what the heck was going on,” about maternal mortality rates in 48 states and Washington, D.C. increasing 26.6 percent from 2000–14.

She’s a picked Fight Club insider, bravely holding the party line - perhaps just before or after she cracked her bubble gum.

Another story below tells us that “Premature mortality rates in the US are on the rise for white individuals (women especially), American Indians, and Alaska Natives, according to a study published January 26 in The Lancet.”

That’s real data, but it’s also a great cloud of chaff, in that it lumps the whites in with the Native Americans. Before you get all hot and bothered about that statement, let me clarify that, A: “For white Americans, that represents a reversal, but the authors write that premature death rates for middle-aged American Indians and Alaska Natives have risen for every birth cohort since 1948.”

Native Americans have been killing themselves too much for a very long time for very well-known reasons. Whereas, for White Americans (women especially), “that represents a reversal.” What, pray, caused the reversal among white Americans, women especially?

B: “During 2000-2014, An estimated 111,000 excess premature deaths occurred in white individuals from 25 to 49 years of age, and 6600 in American Indians and Alaska Natives.”

Lumping 6600 additional non-reversal American Indian deaths with 111,000 represents-a-reversal white individual deaths is, from a research perspective, spewing chaff. Because 6,600 is six percent of 111,000.

We just learned that 94% of the excess premature deaths occurred in white individuals 25 to 49 years of age.

Let me repeat 94% of the excess premature deaths occurred in white individuals 25 to 49 years of age.

Summing up:

Premature mortality rates are on the rise for white women especially.

Say it with me.

Increases [in death rates] were highest in women and those aged 25–30 years.

Focus with me.

94% of the excess premature deaths occurred in white individuals 25 to 49 years of age.

The phone-addicted. The texting-addicted. The ear-budded. The Facebook addicted.

Prosecution rests, your honor.

To protect current programming levels, affirm: “There is a decade where we don’t know what the heck was going on,or Health cuts most likely cause of major rise in mortality,

 

Janaury 17, 2017 – Maternal Mortality on a Troubling Rise

The study, published by Obstetrics & Gynecology and led by Marian MacDorman of the Maryland Population Research Center on campus, estimates the maternal mortality rate in 48 states and Washington, D.C., increased 26.6 percent from 2000–14. Deaths increased from 18.8 per 100,000 live births to 23.8.

“There is a decade where we don’t know what the heck was going on,” she says. “It is very concerning.”

 

February 2, 2017 – Death rates for many US 30-year-olds are rising in an 'extremely unusual' way

Premature mortality rates in the US are on the rise for white individuals (women especially), American Indians, and Alaska Natives, according to a study published January 26 in The Lancet.

For white Americans, that represents a reversal, but the authors write that premature death rates for middle-aged American Indians and Alaska Natives have risen for every birth cohort since 1948.

 

February 2, 2017 – Death Rate for Young White Americans Is Rising Instead of Falling

Increases [in death rates] were highest in women and those aged 25–30 years.

Largely as a result of these trends, U.S. life expectancy actually fell this past year for the first time since 1993. The good news is that the trajectory of death rates among Hispanics, blacks, and Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States continues downward.

 

February 3, 2017 – STUDY: PREMATURE MORTALITY RATES RISING IN THE US

The annual morality increases were 3.2% for 30-year-old white women, 0.6% for 30-year-old white men, 4.3% for 30-year-old American Indian men and women, and 1.9% for 30-year-old Alaskan Native men and women

During 2000-2014, An estimated 111,000 excess premature deaths occurred in white individuals from 25 to 49 years of age, and 6600 in American Indians and Alaska Natives.

 

February 16, 2017 - Health cuts most likely cause of major rise in mortality, study claims

The rise in deaths from 2014 to 529,655 in 2015 was the biggest in percentage terms in almost 50 years and the mortality rate was the highest since 2008. The excess deaths were largely among older people who are most dependent on health and social care, the authors said.

Futurist

ˈfyo͞oCHərəst/

noun

a person who studies the future and makes predictions about it based on current trends.

 

Firebrand

fī(ə)rˌbrand

noun

a person who is passionate about a particular cause, typically inciting change and taking radical action.

 

Pampleteer

pamfləˈtir/

noun

a writer of pamphlets, especially ones of a political and controversial nature.

 

You know who taught me to use quotes like that? Guy named Don Croft.

The first story I’ve featured below is headlined “Samsung's new flip phone brings some decidedly old-school cool.”

In a post back in this thread, I related how a twenty-something guy in a band of street musicians said to his mates “check him, rockin’ the flip phone!” as I made a phone call on mine. Another time, my nephew’s 21 year old girlfriend said “who ARE you?” as I answered a call on my flip phone (from my mom!).

Yeah, it’s cool. But only because it is one step farther away from the ghastly, web-enabled technology that’s driving a stupefying global increase in suicides and mortality. I’ve always hated cell phones, and was browbeaten into getting the one I have.

And everybody’s dimly getting onto what I’m laying down, here. Which is why the industry is feverishly releasing faux flip phones, hoping the rubes don’t notice. Releasing web-enabled suicide-drivers that LOOK like the old, somewhat-less-deadly flip phones. By that I mean that I can feel my head heating when I use mine. To protect current programming levels, affirm "But it’s so convenient!"

But their defense is reacting to my offense, and I’m driving over them, to the goal line.

Yes, I’m saying it here, loud and proud, even cell phones SUCK ASS. Admit it - gorgeous wooden phone booths in the lobby of the sweet restaurant you’re dining in are quite enough for any but the perverted, thanks very much. And you could make out in them. Superman changed in them. Come on, who’s with me?

During the haranguing that led me to finally get one in 2006, I said to my wife “you call me at work on my land line, I pick up on the second ring, every time. Yet, when I call you on your cell phone, I don’t believe I’ve ever actually reached you.”

Come on, you know no one takes calls anymore.

That previous missive on my part was in response to the tireless “what if there’s an emergency?” canard.

Much as cell phones suck, it’s the obviously-weaponized Ssmart phone - the one that renders you into a state worse than if you were legally drunk when you use it - that has taken matters here to a much higher, truly ludicrous level.

But digital music came, and we were assured Vinyl was gone, and, well, you know the rest of that story.

Humanity is recovering its wits, and pretty quickly I might add.

The fake-flip-phone pandering below is a rearguard action. 

I am a Futurist, and you are excited about that, because, in MY future, there’s less suicide, and longer, healthier lives, and a much lower asshole quotient, everywhere.

Oh, I’m also a “firebrand” and a “pamphleteer”.

It’s my hope that, at some point, one of my posts is going to break this game open. People who have no idea what Orgonite is are going to say “you’ve got to check out what this guy’s laying down.” And the folks in charge are absolutely terrified about that.

Is it this post? I don’t care. I’m writing as if no one is reading, except for my bemused and remarkably tolerant compatriots, and a handful of quiet guest readers on this Obscure Internet Forum.

p.s., zero viewers of this thread as I write and post this (smirks grimly).

I feel better getting things off my chest, and thank you for your time and attention in this matter.

January 8, 2017 – WA distracted driving law is written for flip phones, bipartisan bill would give it a vital update

Distracted driving is a rising cause of deaths and injuries in Washington State and across the world. But despite being one of the first states to ban texting while driving, Washington has failed to keep up with changing mobile use. The result is that it is currently legal to look at Facebook or binge episodes of Fixer Upper while operating a vehicle capable of causing enormous damage.

The problem is that the texting law was written and passed just before smart phones hit the market. So the WA law does not directly address all the other uses mobile devices are capable of. Only texting or holding a phone to your ear to talk are currently illegal.

Basically, Washington law still says, “No using your flip phone while driving.”

"Joan was doing her best to rally the men, but their wits were gone, their hearts were dominated for the moment by the old-time dread of the English. Joan's temper flamed up, and she halted and commanded the trumpets to sound the advance. Then she wheeled about and cried out:

"If there is but a dozen of you that are not cowards, it is enough--follow me!"

Away she went, and after her a few dozen who had heard her words and been inspired by them. The pursuing force was astonished to see her sweeping down upon them with this handful of men, and it was their turn now to experience a grisly fright--surely this is a witch, this is a child of Satan! That was their thought--and without stopping to analyze the matter they turned and fled in a panic.

Our flying squadrons heard the bugle and turned to look; and when they saw the Maid's banner speeding in the other direction and the enemy scrambling ahead of it in disorder, their courage returned and they came scouring after us.

La Hire heard it and hurried his force forward and caught up with us just as we were planting our banner again before the ramparts of the Augustins. We were strong enough now. We had a long and tough piece of work before us, but we carried it through before night, Joan keeping us hard at it, and she and La Hire saying we were able to take that big bastille, and must. The English fought like--well, they fought like the English; when that is said, there is no more to say. We made assault after assault, through the smoke and flame and the deafening cannon-blasts, and at last as the sun was sinking we carried the place with a rush, and planted our standard on its walls."
