cultural appropriation @IngrahamAngle on @FoxNews

5.2: pol/free speech/cultural appropriation:
@IngrahamAngle on @FoxNews tv:
. you can say I feel like the other sex today,
so I will just dress like the other sex,
and use their bathroom too;
but if you feel chinese,
and say I will dress like the Chinese today,
that's hateful cultural appropriation.


#nationalism goyim, heathen, pagan, gentile, gentility

2017.11.19: pol/purges/nationalism/
goyim, heathen, pagan, gentile, gentility
2018.4.16: summary:
. this is a review of all the terms
that religious nationalists will apply to
those of other religions or classes.
. notice the same root word gent-
can have opposite connotations:
gentiles are lowly, outside your nation;
but gentility refers to nobility
more international than national.
. the "Jus Gentium" (latin: law of nations)
was defined as "the law that
natural reason establishes among all mankind
and is followed by all peoples alike."
. pagan means a civilian, non-combatant:
not a "christian soldier" globalizing Bible law.


non-alcoholic fatty liver disease is very common #fructose #roundup

17.11.16: news.health/probiotic/hormonics/
non-alcoholic fatty liver disease:
2018.3.26: summary:
. surprised to learn how many are sick with
something that may be related to dysbiosis;
ie, having the wrong gut germs from a bad diet
or from getting too many antibiotics
such as the pesticide Roundup
(much more common in grains and legumes now).
. Dr.Rinella blames fatty liver on
bad germs or leaky gut and being obese,
but the primary cause is our modern diet
high in fructose (sugar is half fructose).

Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease
A Systematic Review

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
affects approximately 30% of the US population.
high visceral adipose tissue (being obese)
increases pro-inflammatory mediators
and excessive free fatty acids (lipotoxemia)
and insulin resistance;
all that affects the liver:
alterations of glucose and lipid metabolism.
. all that altered metabolism leads to
fatty liver or hepatic steatosis.

2nd stage is steatohepatitis
caused by lipotoxicity from increased free fatty acids
and by inflammation from
obesity releasing pro-inflammatory mediators,
and by intestinal dysbiosis generating portal endotoxin.
. pro-inflammatory mediators and
(endoplasmic reticulum sress
from dysregulated unfolded protein response)
leads to pro-inflammatory signalling
that along with (the vicious circle of
oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction)
causes activation of hepatic stellate cells
and collagen deposition;
that leads to fibrosis
which is a precursor to cirrhosis.

. one symptom of insulin resistance is
acanthosis nigricans
[velvety darkening of the skin.
It is usually found in body folds.]


naturopath Frank Cooper early warning about Interesterified fats

Frank Cooper (Naturopathic Nutritionist based in Australia):
I was impressed that when Interesterified fats
were raising alarm bells in 2009,
Frank Cooper warned about them a year earlier;
I wondered what he is doing now,
and he seems to have lost web presence in 2013.

Intel ME OS is Minix3 -Google wants Linux

17.11.6: news.cyb/sec/Intel Mgt Engine OS is Minix3 while Google wants Linux:
2018: summary:
. below the OS level is hypervisor,
and below hypervisor level is
the ME (mgt engine).
. it allows the maker of the pc
to do updates even when power seems off,
as long as there is internet.
. the ME uses the secure Minix OS kernel,
but also includes a web browser,
and other huge amounts of functionality
that you can't get the bugs out of,
so Google suggests replacing it with
a Linux kernel and less functionality.
. this has the potential to be a back door
with which the national security agencies
can better protect us from terrorists
and others who take advantage of privacy.


@walmart tax cut? buy a better checkout system like @sproutsfm

2017: mis.aq/walmart/@walmart tax cut? buy a better checkout system:
. I frequent the Walmart located at
Kolb & Speedway, Tucson, AZ;
in 2017 I started storing a lot of canned food;
often I would bring 12 or more of the same item;
double charged by cashier?
I'll try my luck at self-checkout;
I double charged me too?!
. the display has only 10 lines
and displays each item on a new line,
instead of using just one line
to show you how many times
you entered the same type of item;
so, it's not obvious from looking at the display
whether or not an item scanned
when you have more than 10 of the same item type.
. it would be easier if the new system would tell you
how many times you entered that item
rather than listing each entry separately
(like occurs when using the cashier
and their one-line display
tells you what just got scanned).
. doing that would also save a lot on receipt paper:
instead of 12 lines of canned greens,
there would be one line saying:
12 x canned greens.
-- @sproutsfm has a system like that,
and it is very easy to check for charging errors;
whereas, on the Walmart receipt,
it lists each item on a separate line,
making the receipt difficult to check
for cashier or machine errors.
