A pastor reportedly gave ‘miracle water’ to Ugandans. It was bleach. 

 

An American pastor has been accused of distributing a poisonous “miracle drink” to thousands of Ugandans, including infants, according to a report by the Guardian.

Robert Baldwin — founder of a Christian nonprofit based in New Jersey — was providing a bogus “miracle cure” to almost 50,000 Ugandans, according to the outlet’s original reporting. In conjunction with Sam Little, a supposed British clairvoyant, Baldwin was promoting the substance as a cure for many diseases, including cancer, malaria and HIV/AIDS.

The cure? Known as “miracle mineral solution,” or MMS, the substance consists of sodium chlorite and citric acid, which combine to create chlorine dioxide, an industrial bleach. The U.S. Embassy in Kampala on Monday condemned the distribution of the substance.

In an interview with NJ Advance Media, Baldwin denied distributing the “cure” and said he had to shut down his operations because of the hate coming his way.

Experts Say Long-Lasting Couples Always Do These 8 Things Together 

 

When you see couples who have been together for years and are still happily in love, you may ask yourself what do they know that everyone else doesn't. The truth is, maintaining a long-lasting relationship isn't easy. Not everyone can do it. But if you want your relationship to last, there are a few key things you and your partner need to do.


First off, it's important to remember that relationships take work. As sex and relationship therapist, Cyndi Darnell tells Bustle, couples who last recognize that relationships are living things that need nourishment. "Relationships are not static monoliths," she says. "Just like a plant or a pet, living things need sustenance to survive. Love alone is not enough, especially when there's no identifiable expression of it on a regular basis."

Long-lasting couples not only love each other, but they also do things each day to show their love. Showing your partner that you care doesn't require anything special or out of the ordinary. It can be as simple as doing a thoughtful act of service or really listening when they have something important to say.

DARPA: This Smart Contact Lens Could Give Soldiers Superpowers 

 

French engineering school IMT Atlantique revealed what it calls “the first stand-alone contact lens with a flexible micro battery” earlier this month.

And, notably, it caught the attention of the U.S. military’s attention: the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is reportedly interested in the contact lens to augment troops’ visual capabilities in the field, according to Task and Purpose — meaning the gadget could represent the augmented contact lens that DARPA has spent a decade searching for.

The biggest challenge that IMT Atlantique engineers encountered was to scale down the battery. But thanks to a newly developed flexible micro battery, they found a way to continuously light an LED light source for “several hours,” according to a press release.

Pet Dog Fatally Mauled Elderly Woman, Injured Husband In Vicious Attack 

 

A 72-year-old woman died and her 74-year-old husband was injured after being attacked by their pet dog. The incident took place Thursday in southwestern Sydney, Australia.

According to local reports, the dog — a Staffy cross Rhodesian ridgeback — mauled the woman and attacked her husband at their Hornby Street, Wilton, home. The victims were identified as Rosemary and Derek O’Reilly.

Family members told local media 9News that the dog, named Athena, attacked Derek when he stepped in to help his wife. Officials said Rosemary suffered large lacerations to both her arms and puncture wounds to her right shoulder. Her husband also suffered bite marks and lacerations.

Authorities said the dog had already been restrained when paramedics arrived at the scene. They took the two victims to the hospital where Rosemary was declared dead.

A Catholic Nun Perfectly Explains the Major Hypocrisy of the "Pro-Life" Argument 

 

"I do not believe that just because you're opposed to abortion that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don't? Because you don't want any tax money to go there. That's not pro-life. That's pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is."

Sunscreen doesn’t protect dark-skinned people from developing melanoma 

 

Melanoma is a potentially deadly form of skin cancer linked to overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. Sunscreen can block UV rays and therefore reduce the risk of sun burns, which ultimately reduces the risk of developing melanoma. Thus, the promotion of sunscreen as an effective melanoma prevention strategy is a reasonable public health message.

While this may be true for light-skinned people, such as individuals of European descent, this is not the case for darker skinned people, or individuals of African descent.

PILOT CLAIMS SENIOR AIRLINE INSTRUCTOR HARASSED HER BY ASKING 'INAPPROPRIATE QUESTIONS' 

 

Air India is reportedly investigating after a pilot accused one of the airline's senior captains of sexually harassing her during and after a training session.

A spokesperson for the airline told The Khaleej Times that the pilot, a woman, had filed a sexual harassment complaint accusing the male senior captain, who had been leading the training session, of asking her inappropriate questions.

In her complaint, the pilot reportedly alleged that the senior captain, "suggested the two...have dinner at a city restaurant in Hyderabad on May 5 after the training session was over."

The pilot said she initially accepted the invitation "as I had done a few flights with him and he seemed decent."

However, when the two arrived at the restaurant that day, the pilot wrote, "this is where my ordeal started."

"He started with telling me how depressed and unhappy he was in his married life," the pilot said.

OUR REALITY COULD BE A “HOLOGRAM” CREATED BY QUANTUM PHYSICS 

 

Ever since Einstein posited that space and time were inextricably linked, scientists have wondered where the cosmic web called spacetime comes from.

Now, ongoing research in quantum physics may finally arrive at an explanation: A bizarre phenomenon called quantum entanglement could be the underlying basis for the four dimensions of space and time in which we all live, according to a deep dive by Knowable Magazine. In fact, in a mind-boggling twist, our reality could be a “hologram” of this quantum state.

The Best and Worst Airlines and Airports of 2019 

 

Had a bad experience at Newark Liberty Airport last year? You’re not alone, according to recent rankings.

The New Jersey hub ranked as the worst U.S. airport in the 2019 annual ratings from AirHelp, an organization that specializes in air traveler rights and seeks compensation in cases of delays or cancellations. See last year’s rankings here.

U.S. airports in general didn’t fare particularly well, with the highest-rated Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport taking 34th place of 132 around the world. Newark held the lowest U.S. spot, at 116. A major reason is weather-related delays, says Henrik Zillmer, AirHelp’s chief executive officer; they are a huge problem for American airports, compared with European ones.

Is nature over? Maybe 

 

I know you care. You want your children to live in a world that supports wild elephants, giraffes, rhinos, bees, pangolins ... and, of course, human life, too.

I also trust that you've heard some of the warnings -- that Earth likely is moving into the sixth mass extinction event in its history, the first one that humans are causing. Elephants could be gone from the wild in a generation. Amphibian populations already are collapsing. Climate change is warming and acidifying the oceans, threatening to annihilate coral reefs.

Perhaps you've read the very latest from a UN-affiliated group, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, or IPBES, which released on Monday a sweeping and damning report on global biodiversity. None of the themes in the report are new -- we've long known we're screwing up the natural world, which also is the human world -- but the report's findings remain alarming and profound. Especially these three figures:

• Three-quarters of the land: 75% of the planet's land surface has been "significantly altered." Three. Quarters. Relatedly, biodiversity "is declining faster than at any time in human history."

Amid Measles Outbreak, Texas Vaccine Exemptions Rise Again for 15th Straight Year 

 

The number of people in the state who chose to not immunize their children for non-medical reasons has jumped this past school year despite a record-breaking measles outbreak in the U.S., according to a Texas Department of Health Services report.

The number of parents who sought exemptions rose 14% in 2018-2019, continuing a 15-year upward trend that public health officials worry leaves communities susceptible to a resurgence of preventable diseases, the Houston Chronicle reported.

Chris Cuomo Makes Heartfelt Plea To End The Stigma Surrounding Mental Illness 

 

Chris Cuomo would ask for an end to mental illness, and not for world peace, if a genie from a bottle ever granted him a wish.

“Why? Peace is temporary, we know that,” the host of CNN’s “Cuomo Prime Time” explained on Thursday night.

“Mental illness is too often, forever,” he added.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and Cuomo dedicated an entire segment of his show to tackling the stigma surrounding mental illness.

HOMO ABSURDUS: WE NO LONGER DESERVE THE TITLE OF ‘WISE HUMAN’ HOMO SAPIENS 

 


Homo sapiens means wise human, but the name no longer suits us. As an evolutionary biologist who writes about Darwinian interpretations of human motivations and cultures, I propose that at some point we became what we are today: Homo absurdus, a human that spends its whole life trying to convince itself that its existence is not absurd.

As French philosopher Albert Camus put it: “Man is the only creature who refuses to be what he is.” Thanks to this entrenched absurdity, the 21st century is riding on a runaway train of converging catastrophes in the Anthropocene.

Discovery of self

The critical juncture in the lineage toward Homo absurdus was described by evolutionist Theodosius Dobzhansky: “A being who knows that he will die arose from ancestors who did not know.” But evolution at some point also built into this human mind a deeply ingrained sentiment—that one has not just a material life (the physical body), but also a distinct and separate mental life (the inner self).

WHAT IF AIR CONDITIONERS COULD HELP SAVE THE PLANET INSTEAD OF DESTROYING IT? 

 

EARTH’S CLIMATE IS full of terrifying feedback loops: Decreased rainfall raises the risk of wildfires, which release yet more carbon dioxide. A warming Arctic could trigger the release of long-frozen methane, which would heat the planet even faster than carbon. A lesser-known climate feedback loop, though, is likely mere feet from where you’re sitting: the air conditioner. Use of the energy-intensive appliance causes emissions that contribute to higher global temperatures, which means we’re all using AC more, producing more emissions and more warming.

But what if we could weaponize air conditioning units to help pull carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere instead? According to a new paper in Nature, it’s feasible. Using technology currently in development, AC units in skyscrapers and even your home could get turned into machines that not only capture CO2, but transform the stuff into a fuel for powering vehicles that are difficult to electrify, like cargo ships. The concept, called crowd oil, is still theoretical and faces many challenges. But in these desperate times, crowd oil might have a place in the fight to curb climate change.
