American voters have a 30 - 41 percent negative opinion of former FBI Director James Comey, but they believe him more than President Donald Trump 54 - 35 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.

Believing President Trump more than Comey are Republicans 76 - 13 percent, white men 47 - 39 percent and white voters with no college degree, 47 - 40 percent, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds. Every other party, gender, education, age and racial group backs Comey.

American voters believe 53 - 35 percent that the Russian government has compromising information about President Trump. Only Republicans and white men don't believe this. White voters with no college degree are divided 45 - 46 percent.

Trump should not fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, voters say 74 - 13 percent, including 59 - 25 percent among Republicans. But voters are divided in their support of a bill to prevent the president from firing the special counsel with 46 percent supporting the bill and 44 percent opposed. Voters oppose 52 - 42 percent impeaching Trump if he fires Mueller.

American voters say 54 - 31 percent that Mueller is conducting a fair investigation into possible links between the Russian government and the 2016 Trump presidential campaign.

Asked differently, 52 percent of voters say the investigation is legitimate and 44 percent say it is a "political witch hunt."

"American voters aren't enamored of former FBI Director James Comey, but they trust, by 19 points, his version of events more than President Donald Trump's version," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"Americans also seem to be on Independent Counsel Robert Mueller's side in his ongoing look at the president and his people."

American voters disapprove 52 - 25 percent of the job Scott Pruitt is doing as Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The news media is an important part of democracy, 66 percent of American voters say, while 22 percent say the media is the enemy of the people. Republicans say 51 - 37 percent that the media is the enemy of the people, rather than an important part of democracy, the only group to believe that. Voters trust the media more than President Trump 53 - 37 percent to tell the truth about important issues.

Legalizing Marijuana

American voters support 63 - 33 percent legalizing marijuana in the U.S., the highest level of support ever measured in a Quinnipiac University Poll. The previous high was 61 - 33 percent in an August 3, 2017 survey.

Support for use of medical marijuana is 93 - 5 percent, similar to prior polls.

There is a wide gender gap as 43 percent of American voters say they have used recreational marijuana, including 54 percent of men and 33 percent of women.

Voters oppose 70 - 23 percent enforcement of federal laws against marijuana in states that have legalized medical or recreational marijuana. In fact, voters support 74 - 20 percent a bill protecting states with legal medical or recreational marijuana from federal prosecution.

Recreational marijuana is legal in the state in which they live, 22 percent of voters say. Increased revenue from taxes on recreational marijuana is a good reason to legalize marijuana, voters say 54 - 42 percent.

American voters say 61 - 31 percent that marijuana is not a "gateway drug."

Legalizing marijuana will make people more likely to use opioids, 20 percent of voters say, while 20 percent say it will be less likely to lead to opioid use and 56 percent say legalized marijuana will not have much impact on opioid use.

"Voters are more favorable to legalizing marijuana than in any previous Quinnipiac University survey, and do not see its use as a gateway to more serious drugs," Brown said.

From April 20 - 24, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,193 voters nationwide, with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, including the design effect. Live interviewers call landlines and cell phones.

The Quinnipiac University Poll, directed by Douglas Schwartz, Ph.D., conducts nationwide public opinion surveys, and statewide polls in Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Florida, Ohio, Virginia, Iowa, Colorado and Texas as a public service and for research.

What makes adrenochrome so valuable? It has psychoactive properties and can be used as a mind control drug. It can also be consumed to give someone an “adrenaline high.” Who would want adrenochrome? Former U.S. Vice President AL GORE was once apprehended at an airport with a suitcase full of packets of his own adrenochrome-laden blood. According to ALEX JONES, ALAN WATT and FRITZ SPRINGMEIER, all high-level bureaucrats and V.I.P.’s carry around at least 2 pints of their own adrenochrome-laden blood at ALL times.

……….Aside from mind control and euphoric properties, what else can adrenochrome do? Some believe that consuming the blood of a living creature steals its “life force” and transfers it to the drinker. Aside from “vampires,” many cults [Satanic and otherwise] are known for drinking human blood [“The Illuminati” would rank high in that list].

……….Why would Satanic and Illuminist cults want to drink human blood? ENTER: The Reptilian Blood Legacy. Whether you call them aliens, Annunaki, Nephilim, Chitauri, Dracos, Nagas or otherwise, many believe that our planet has long been infiltrated and ruled by extraterrestrial / extradimensional reptilian entities who manipulate global politics, business, banking, military and media.

Many investors like Binance because they offer coins that often aren’t listed on other exchanges such as Bitcoin Gold, IOTA, and Walton Coin.
Transfer Limits

Binance is strictly a cryptocurrency exchange, so you’re not able to fund your account with fiat currency.

You can only deposit cryptocurrency funds, but there’s no limit on the amount that you can deposit. There are also no fees on any of your deposits.

The amount that you can withdraw each day is determined by your verification tier. Without submitting any verification details, you’re placed at Level 1 and can withdraw up to 2 BTC worth of cryptocurrency a day.

To be classified as Level 2, you need to enable either two-factor authentication or Google Authenticator. Following that, you need to provide:

First name
Last name
Gender
Country
Passport ID
Passport photo
Selfie with passport

With Level 2 verification, your daily withdrawal limit increases to 100 BTC. Although personally I've never felt a need to go beyond level 1 verification, since the withdrawal limit is still plenty. The fee for withdrawing xlm is only .01 for example, so very cheap trading fees and withdrawal.

On July 1, 2001, a nationwide law in Portugal took effect that decriminalized all drugs, including cocaine and heroin. Under the new legal framework, all drugs were “decriminalized,” not “legalized.” Thus, drug possession for personal use and drug usage itself are still legally prohibited, but violations of those prohibitions are deemed to be exclusively administrative violations and are removed completely from the criminal realm. Drug trafficking continues to be prosecuted as a criminal offense.

While other states in the European Union have developed various forms of de facto decriminalization — whereby substances perceived to be less serious (such as cannabis) rarely lead to criminal prosecution — Portugal remains the only EU member state with a law explicitly declaring drugs to be “decriminalized.” Because more than seven years have now elapsed since enactment of Portugal’s decriminalization system, there are ample data enabling its effects to be assessed.

What is inflation
The Stellar network has a build-in inflation mechanism which distributes new lumens at a rate of 1% per year. The new coins are added to the network weekly, so each week around 0.0191% of the total current amount of XLM is distributed on the network.
Who gets inflation

The inflation lumens are distributed using a voting mechanism. Any account that gets over 0.05% of the votes, gets a share of the new lumens. The number of votes you have is equal to your balance. So if you have 500XLM you have 500 votes. You can vote for any account you like, but remember, only accounts with more than 0.05% of the votes get their share. That means that an account needs at least 51.8 million votes to get inflation lumens.
Why use a pool

You cannot get a share of the inflation lumens if you posses less than 51.8 million XLM. But we can work together in a pool. If you vote for MoonPool or Lumenauts, they will get a part of the inflation lumens, and pay you back based on your number of votes. The payout is done automatically as soon as we got our share of the inflation lumens, and also your votes are recorded automatically.

How to vote
Voting is done by setting a certain option in your account, called the inflation destination. The value is the account ID you vote for. This account information is public on the network, and they periodically record all account IDs that vote for their pool, together with their balance. The balance is used to calculate the amount of lumens you get when an inflation operation is run on the network, and this amount will be paid to the corresponding account ID.


To join the Lumenaut Community Pool, vote for their inflation destination address:

GCCD6AJOYZCUAQLX32ZJF2MKFFAUJ53PVCFQI3RHWKL3V47QYE2BNAUT

You cannot earn inflation on an exchange (and you should not use exchanges as wallets). Use a Ledger Nano S or create a paper wallet to store your lumens first.

If you have 1,000 Lumens, weekly payout should be about 1,000*0.0019; with comes out to 1.91 lumens.
If you have 2,000 as your balance for the week, you should earn about 3.82 in a week just from setting an inflation address in your wallet.
A balance of 10,000 would earn you 19.1 lumens per week and increasing as the balance gets bigger.

Japanese IT giant Fujitsu has revealed a new technology that it says could help to mitigate problems with ethereum's smart contracts.

In a statement released Wednesday, Fujitsu said the new system aims to detect in advance the risks associated with a smart contract source code on ethereum. In effect, the tech helps the blockchain authenticate the source call that triggers smart contract transactions.

Smart contracts are a primary feature differentiating ethereum from bitcoin, enabling developers to build applications on top of the ethereum blockchain to automatically execute programming orders (or contracts).

However, Fujitsu said that, currently, there are six common risks associated with the platform. While existing technologies are capable of solving most of those issues, the authenticity of the source call still remains problematic.

For instance, as the firm explained, since multiple smart contracts could have been built indirectly into a blockchain, there's a risk that the system may not correctly execute the original intention of a source call.

Look for a stamp. Items advertised as silver and sold internationally should be stamped based on its silver content. If there is no stamp, be leery. It may be still be pure silver, but created in a country that doesn't require stamping.

Evaluate the international silver stamp rating. Look at the silver piece with a magnifying glass. International sellers of silver will stamp silver as 925, 900 or 800. These numbers indicate the percentage of fine silver in the piece. 925 means that the piece is 92.5 percent silver. A stamp of 900 or 800 means the piece is 90 percent or 80 percent silver, and is often called "coin"

Method Two of Six:
Testing Magnetic Qualities

Test with a magnet. In particular, use a strong magnet, such as the rare-earth magnet made out of neodymium. Silver is paramagnetic and exhibits only weak magnetic effects. If your magnet sticks strongly to the piece, it has a ferromagnetic core and is not silver.
Keep in mind that there are a few other metals that do not stick to a magnet and can be made to look like silver. It is better to perform the magnetic test in conjunction with another test to make sure the core is not another metal.

Try the sliding test. If you are testing silver bars, there is another way you can use a magnet to see if your silver is real or not. Angle one of your silver bars so that it is at a 45 degree angle. Slide the magnet down it. The magnet should slide slowly down the face of the bar. This may seem counterintuitive, but silver is paramagnetic and the rare earth magnet induces electric eddy currents in the silver which act as an electromagnet to create a braking effect that slows the descent of the magnet.

Norway is dominating these Winter Olympics with a unique approach to sports

Dan Wolken, USA TODAY Sports
24 seconds ago
PYEONGCHANG, South Korea — They’re not here to gloat. The Norwegians, in fact, will go out of their way to tell you that there’s still a long way to go at these Olympics before they reach their goals and win the overall medal count. They’re also not here to tell anyone (like the struggling U.S. team; cough, cough) how to go about their business or impose their Norwegian societal values, which they believe are directly tied into the success of their winter sports development.


“We’re not a gorilla beating its chest,” said Tore Ovrebo, the Norwegian Olympic Committee’s director of elite sports. “We know it can change very quickly. We have to work hard.”

A metabolomic study of the PPARδ agonist GW501516 for enhancing running endurance in Kunming mice
Wei Chen, Rong Gao[…]Lili Wang
Scientific Reports 5, Article number: 9884 (2015)
doi:10.1038/srep09884

Published online:

Discussion

This study demonstrated that GW501516 increases exhaustive running performance and the proportion of SDH-positive muscle fibres in both trained and untrained mice. Slow-twitch myofibres are rich in mitochondria and have a high oxidative capacity. Formation of slow-twitch muscle fibres revolves around PGC-1α and its transcripts17,18. Like exercise, GW501516 alone is sufficient to improve running endurance of untrained mice, even after only 1 week of administration (Supplementary Fig. S1 online). Enhanced running endurance is the results of increased fatty acid utilization after PPARδ activation that upregulates PDK4 and other key components of fatty acid oxidation pathways. Accordingly, blood glucose levels of GW501516-treated mice were significantly higher after exercise while blood lactate was lower compared to untrained controls. Although GW501516 or exercise each enhanced fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle, GW501516 predominately induces fatty acid metabolism, while training also induced protein metabolism as an energy source.

Studies have demonstrated that GW501516 significantly increased the running performance of trained C57Bl/6J mice5, but not in untrained mice that were treated with 5 mg/kg over periods lasting 4 weeks to 5 months, or 3–30 mg/kg/day gavaged for 2 months5. Our study found that GW501516 increased running performance in KM mice regardless of training and the magnitude of improvement was unexpectedly greater for untrained mice. This finding could be due to different GW501516 administration protocols, exhaustive running protocols, or strain differences. In this study, running performance was determined by wheel running rather than treadmill running because it is more natural for mice, which are specialized climbers, and better measures their natural running abilities. Additionally, studies have shown significant differences in aerobic capacity, treadmill performance, and exercise training responses between different inbred and hybrid rodent strains19,20. The running distance of untreated trained mice (TN) was relatively higher than that of GW501516-treated untrained mice (NG). The effects of wheel training and the skills acquired during the training period cannot be ignored, but are difficult to control for.

PPARδ is the principle isoform involved in regulating muscle fuel utilization. Previous studies demonstrated that changes in expression of genes regulated by PPARδ occurred after 3 days of GW501516 treatment5. We also found that expression of PGC1α, PDK4, and selective biomarkers for fatty acid β oxidation in skeletal muscle were significantly increased by GW501516 treatment. Both palmitic acid and the earlier intermediate in the fatty acid oxidation pathway, 3-hydroxy-hexadecanoic acid, were elevated compared to untrained control mice. However, why the downstream products of fatty acid oxidation were not found to be increased in the GW501516-treated group warrants further investigation. Additionally, GW17046 (another PPARδ agonist) treatment in ob/ob mice markedly reduced levels of saturated long chain fatty acids (15–24 carbon atoms) in untrained GW501516-treated (NG) mice compared to untreated untrained (NN) mice21. This result suggests that unlike exercise, GW501516 is limited to promoting hydrolysis of triglycerides and that the increased serum palmitic acid observed in GW501516-treated (NG) mice may be due to the catabolism of saturated fatty acids. In contrast, the decrease in serum saturated fatty acids was completely reversed when GW501516 treatment was combined with training. Presumably, this is because of enhanced fat metabolism. GW501516 also increased blood glucose and lowered blood lactate compared to control mice, particularly after running tests and in trained mice. This suggests that glycolysis in muscle tissue is reduced after treatment with GW501516, and becomes more apparent immediately after the exhaustive running (Fig. 1 and Supplementary Fig. S1 online). Consistent with this reduced glucose metabolism, increased serum galactose was also only observed after GW501516 treatment. Although glycolytic metabolism of galactose yields no net adenosine triphosphate (ATP), previous research demonstrated that galactose induces a metabolic shift towards a more oxidative phenotype and enhances aerobic mitochondrial metabolism in myotubes22.

PPARδ is intricately involved in enhanced running endurance. It mediates oxidative adaption following exercise training and increased expression in skeletal muscle was reported after both acute exercise and endurance training12,23,24. Similar to chemical activation of PPARδ, endurance training increases fatty acid metabolism in skeletal muscle and reduced lactate production during exercise25. Accordingly, the running distance of untreated trained (TN) mice is over 100% greater of that of untreated untrained (NN), blood glucose levels in the TN group are significantly higher and blood lactate levels are significantly lower than those measured in the NN group. Enhanced fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle was also observed by measuring elevated components of the fatty acid oxidation pathway including palmitic acid and octanoic acid. Caproic acid and butyric acid were not significantly different between groups in our assay, but the sensitivity to detect these metabolites may be insufficient. The underlying mechanism for PPARδ and PPARα activation to increase fatty acid oxidation in skeletal muscle is by upregulating components of the electron transport chain (CYT-C and UCP3) and CPT1b in the mitochondria. Serum inositol is also increased by training and may help increase endurance in trained mice. Inositol can help transport fat from the liver and improve the distribution of fat throughout the body, allowing it to be used more efficiently as an energy source. Our results further corroborate that exercise training promotes fat mobilization and fatty acid oxidation as energy substrates during running. Furthermore, this is likely mediated through exercised-induced PPARδ expression in a way that is similar to what was reported previously in human skeletal muscle following exercise training12.

One of the most striking differences between drug treatment and exercise was the increase of serum PUFA and hydroxybutyrate. Compared to training, GW501516 increased levels of UFA, especially PUFA, and they were further increased by the combination of GW501516 and training. This is in agreement with previous studies that showed increases of enzymes that produce UFA after treatment with a PPARδ agonist5,21. Our study demonstrated GW501516 increased levels of 3 PUFA (α-linolenic acid, arachidonic acid, and its precursor 8,  11,  14-Eicosatrienoic acid) regardless of exercise training. Previous studies have demonstrated that all long-chain fatty acids and their derivatives are putative PPAR ligands2,26,27. Endogenous fatty acids that have been shown to activate PPAR include PUFAs such as some ω-3 PUFA (e.g. α-linolenic acid and docosahexaenoic acid), some ω-6 PUFA (e.g. linoleic acid and arachidonic acid), and some saturated fatty acids (e.g. stearic acid)2,3,26,27. UFA and PUFA in particular, could act as activators of PPARδ after being increased by GW501516. Additionally they are sensed by the liver which then mobilizes fatty acids and stimulates hepatic fatty acid oxidation28. We observed hydroxybutyrate, the major constituent of ketone bodies, was significantly increased by GW501516, but not exercise. Leucine, a ketogenic amino acid, was also increased by GW501516 only. However, exercise did increase other BCAA. Increased hepatic synthesis of ketone bodies would be expected during increased release of fatty acids from fat stores and further suggests that GW501516 promotes hepatic fatty acid oxidation that can provide muscle with an alternative energy source during exercise. Ketone bodies are an important energy substrate under stress and hydroxybutyrate can freely enter muscle mitochondria and be metabolized to acetyl CoA.

The impacts of training or GW501516 treatment on essential amino acids were slightly different. The glycogenic amino acids that can be metabolized to form pyruvate (alanine, serine and threonine) were only significantly increased after training alone. This suggests more energy is utilized from pyruvate after training. Elevations in these amino acids were reversed by GW501516 treatment suggesting that GW501516 inhibits gluconeogenesis or the conversion of glycogenic amino acids into pyruvate that was induced by training. This indirectly suggests that GW501516-treated mice specifically rely on fatty acids as energy. Three BCAA (valine, leucine, and isoleucine) were increased by both GW501516 and training. Long-distance running involves mobilization of BCAA29 and many studies demonstrate that BCAA concentrations immediately after exercise are reduced in the serum, but not in muscle30. We found that training or GW501516 treatment, preserved serum BCAA levels after exhaustive running. As essential amino acids, BCAA are primarily metabolized in muscle and are important for protein synthesis, neurotransmitter synthesis, and repair of exercise-induced skeletal muscle damage31,32. Increased BCAA may both act as an energy source (Supplementary Fig. S3 online) and protect mitochondria from exercise-induced damage to preserve mitochondrial function. In addition, increased serum BCAA may reduce tryptophan uptake in the brain and delay fatigue by competitively inhibiting 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) synthesis31,32.

Metabolomic analyses are relatively new technology. It is limited by the complexity of techniques, high inter- and intra- subject variability, incomplete metabolite databases, and incomplete understanding of metabolic pathways. Although there are a total of 122 peaks measured in serum samples, only 43 peaks could be matched to known metabolites.

In conclusion,this study demonstrated that 3-week treatment with GW501516 increased running performance of both trained and untrained mice. Like training, GW501516 promoted mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation and increased fat metabolism in muscle tissue (Summarized in Supplementary Fig. S4 online). However, exercise increased energy supply by promoting catabolism of protein, glycolysis and glucogenesis from amino acids, while GW501516 increased fatty acid oxidation through BCAA and ketone body pathways.

R-Modafinil Attenuates Nicotine-Taking and Nicotine-Seeking Behavior in Alcohol-Preferring Rats
Xiao-Fei Wang, Guo-Hua Bi, [...], and Amy Hauck Newman

Additional article information

Abstract
(±)-Modafinil (MOD) is used clinically for the treatment of sleep disorders and has been investigated as a potential medication for the treatment of psychostimulant addiction. However, the therapeutic efficacy of (±)-MOD for addiction is inconclusive. Herein we used animal models of self-administration and in vivo microdialysis to study the pharmacological actions of R-modafinil (R-MOD) and S-modafinil (S-MOD) on nicotine-taking and nicotine-seeking behavior, and mechanisms underlying such actions. We found that R-MOD is more potent and effective than S-MOD in attenuating nicotine self-administration in Long–Evans rats. As Long–Evans rats did not show a robust reinstatement response to nicotine, we used alcohol-preferring rats (P-rats) that display much higher reinstatement responses to nicotine than Long–Evans rats. We found that R-MOD significantly inhibited intravenous nicotine self-administration, nicotine-induced reinstatement, and nicotine-associated cue-induced drug-seeking behavior in P-rats. R-MOD alone neither sustained self-administration in P-rats previously self-administering nicotine nor reinstated extinguished nicotine-seeking behavior. The in vivo brain microdialysis assays demonstrated that R-MOD alone produced a slow-onset moderate increase in extracellular DA. Pretreatment with R-MOD dose-dependently blocked nicotine-induced dopamine (DA) release in the nucleus accumbens (NAc) in both naive and nicotine self-administrating rats, suggesting a DA-dependent mechanism underlying mitigation of nicotine\'s effects. In conclusion, the present findings support further investigation of R-MOD for treatment of nicotine dependence in humans

Reality 2.0: A Way to Upgrade Your Perception of Reality
By Maxim Roubintchik - Dec 24, 2017

Imagine enhancing your perception of the environment around you, other people nearby, and even yourself. Imagine reliving past experiences as if they are happening right now. Imagine a crumbling border between physical and virtual reality. Such a future is closer than you might think.

The basic premise of reality 2.0 is to bridge the gap between two worlds: The physical reality we experience and a possible digital reality that you imagine. This would go beyond overlaying digital things on the physical world, like a virtual Pokémon on the table, using current augmented reality.

Reality 2.0 is literally replacing your visual perception of the world with a fully virtual 3D environment.

How might this work? Imagine taking an exact laser scan of your current environment—your living room or office space, or any other thing—and using this to create a virtual 3D replica of everything around you. Now, re-create the room in VR and overlay the real world with the virtual experience. If you get there, you’re golden. You are experiencing an upgradable version of reality in which you can modify the elements of your virtual world however you desire.

Reality 2.0 might seem like a distant future. But it isn’t.

To showcase the possibility, I sat down for three days—limiting myself to a short amount of time—to build a simple prototype in my living room. Using a laser scan from a Hololens, I created a virtual version of the room. Because my virtual view is synchronized with my actual living room, it becomes a room-scale VR experience that replaces my perception of the world with the digital version created in a 3D engine.

Welcome to a World Only Limited by Your Imagination
Full control over your perception will let you do some pretty spectacular things, like replacing a random person with a famous actor in real-time, transforming your current room into a beach hut, re-experiencing any given moment that happened in this room, and much more

The Associated Press — By BECKY BOHRER - Associated Press
1/7
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Taking a cue from the fight over immigration, some states that have legalized marijuana are considering providing so-called sanctuary status for licensed pot businesses, hoping to protect the fledgling industry from a shift in federal enforcement policy.

Just hours after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on Jan. 4 that federal prosecutors would be free to crack down on marijuana operations as they see fit, Jesse Arreguin, the mayor in Berkeley, California, summoned city councilman Ben Bartlett to his office with a novel idea.

Berkeley was already the first city in the nation to formally declare itself a sanctuary city on immigration, barring city officials from cooperating with federal authorities. Why not do the same thing with marijuana? Last month, it did.

On 31 August 2016 the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced its intention to place the active materials in the Kratom plant into Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act in order to avoid an imminent hazard to public safety. According to the DEA press release \\\"Kratom is abused for its ability to produce opioid-like effects and is often marketed as a legal alternative to controlled substances. Law enforcement nationwide has seized more Kratom in the first half of 2016 than any previous year and easily accounts for millions of dosages intended for the recreational market, according to DEA findings. In addition, Kratom has a high potential for abuse, has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and has a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision. These three factors constitute a Schedule I controlled substance according to the Controlled Substances Act passed by Congress in 1970.

Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. This is not true for Kratom, it has been shown numerous times in reports from users to help recovering Opiate addicts, treat pain, combat depression and anxiety, and much more. Deaths that involve Kratom being a persons\\\' system have always been from the result of mixing Kratom with other drugs, rather than Kratom alone. In states that banned Kratom, Alabama specifically, opiate usage and deaths went up after Kratom was banned in the state. Please stop the DEA from scheduling Kratom as Schedule I, there are many people who will suffer from this.

What is Kratom?
Kratom (Mitragyna speciosa) refers to the leaves of a South East Asian tree closely related to the coffee plant. Like coffee, it has stimulating effects. In large doses, Kratom acts as a sedative and supports the body’s ability to deal with everyday minor aches and pains. It has been used for medicinal purpose in traditional South Eastern medicine for several hundred years.

Mitragyna speciosa has been used by manual laborers to provide energy, positive mood, and to help mitigate everyday aches and pains of the back breaking manual labor associated with agriculture in rural Southeast Asia. It has also been used as an anti-diarrheal against dysentery in the regions that it is native. Here in the U.S., it is primarily used for its mild stimulant effects similar to coffee that promotes a positive and energized state of well being. It is also an important medicinal herb that helps to relax the body and ease life’s every day minor aches and pains.

Kratom has many benefits for those who use it responsibly including beneficial effects on supporting positive mood, energy, immune function, and assisting those who experience various minor aches and pains.

Kratom is remarkably safe when used in a responsible manner. According to the CDC, cigarette smoking causes 440,000 deaths in the United States every year; about one of every five deaths in this country are caused by cigarettes. Alcohol causes more than 1.2 million emergency room visits and 2.7 million physician office visits due to excessive drinking each year. Pharmaceutical drugs are one of the leading causes of death in this country, killing one American every 19 minutes. Prescription opiate pain killers account for more than 475,000 emergency room visits annually. Over-the-counter pain relievers such as Tylenol send over 56,000 people to the emergency room each year with liver-related complications. Between 2011 and 2014, over 11,000 reports were made to Poison Control centers on energy drinks alone. Kratom has never caused a single recorded death and as is about as habit-forming as coffee.

New users are trying Kratom every day after hearing about successful experiences with this plant from friends or stories posted online.
In small amounts, Kratom is energizing like a cup of coffee or tea. Most people that use Kratom say that it gives them an uplifting feeling to their mood and cognitive state. Kratom can also give the feeling of a sense of deep contentment and well-being. In larg doses, Kratom can give the user euphoric feelings. This is likely the result of the mitragynine alkaloid which has been found to offer anti-depressant like qualities. Kratom has also been called an intense focus booster. There are reviews from some users who say it improved ADD/ADHD symptoms, making their thoughts clear and making it easier to concentrate. While supporting a positive mood, Kratom can also calm you down and help rid your mind of stressful thoughts. Kratom is also reported to reduce feelings of nervousness and help ease both physical and mental exhaustion.

Mitragyna Speciosa has been used by many as an effective alternative to prescription pain-killers. Kratom acts similarly to morphine to relieve temporary or chronic pain. Kratom has been reported to relieve conditions from headaches/migraines, muscle pain and soreness as well as chronic pain that has been resistant to prescription medications. Kratom is viewed by some as a much safer and less addictive treatment than some of the addictive medications currently being prescribed.

Another effect of Kratom is its ability to improve the quality of sleep. Kratom helps to turn off your mind before going to bed and put you into a restful state making it easier to fall asleep and wake feeling more refreshed and ready to take on your day. It has also been reported that Kratom usage can enhance your social experiences rid the mind of the anxieties associated with social interaction.

One of the most important uses for Kratom is to ease the effects associated with opiate withdrawal. Kratom is said to offer serious assistance in reducing the effects of withdrawal and reduce the cravings for opiates.

Team Miles, a group of 12 citizen scientists that formed out of the Tampa Hackerspace, is competing in NASA’s first in-space Centennial Challenge: the Cube Quest Challenge.The mission at hand is to build a CubeSat that’s capable of advanced propulsion and communication in deep space, and of achieving lunar orbit. According to NASA, this marks the first time that private entities have had the chance “to compete to operate at the moon and beyond.”

NASA is offering three free payload slots on its Space Launch System rocket, which is scheduled to blast off on Orion’s first unmanned lunar flyby in 2018. The top three teams at the end of four preliminary ground tournaments will win the free slots, enabling them to compete with a larger pool of paying contestants in the lunar and deep space derbies. One free slot is worth about $2.5 million, and opens up the chance to win prizes for the in-space achievements. In total, NASA is promising $5.5 million in ground tournament and derby prizes.

Ripped from international headlines, The Hacker Wars takes you to the front lines of the high-stakes battle over the fate of the Internet, freedom and privacy. The Hacker Wars tells the tales of the anarchic troll provocateur Andrew “weev” Aurenheimer, prodigy hacker hero Jeremy Hammond, and incendiary watchdog journalist Barrett Brown — three larger than life characters whose separate quests to expose the secrets of empire hurled them into a fateful collision course with shadowy corporations, the FBI, and ultimate betrayal by one of their own.

Featuring interviews with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges, NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake, The Hacker Wars traces the steps that led from the Internet’s murkiest corners to the heavy shadow of censorship and a century’s worth of prison time.

Internationally acclaimed filmmaker Vivien Lesnik Weisman melds her distinctively subversively bent style with the real life stories of the cyberpunk vanguards who blur the line between hacking and activism. Locked in a murky conflict against world governments, these so-called hacktivists are waging a life-or-death struggle for the freedom of public information and the defense of privacy under siege.

The unexpected release of The Interview is making headlines around the world, but for now only people inside the U.S. can see the film. Perhaps unsurprisingly, 200,000 people have already circumvented this restriction by turning to torrent sites where the film appeared just an hour after its official release. Even The Pirate Bay joined in and started pointing people to the movie as well.

theinterviewFacing a “terrorist” threat theaters all around the U.S. backed away from showing The Interview last week.

Sony Pictures was left with no other option than to find online platforms to show the controversial movie to a broad audience during the holidays, and they eventually did.

Yesterday afternoon news broke that the film was available for streaming on YouTube, Google Play and Xbox Live. A group of hackers shouldn’t be able to chill freedom of speech, Sony and Google reasoned.

“…after discussing all the issues, Sony and Google agreed that we could not sit on the sidelines and allow a handful of people to determine the limits of free speech in another country,” Google’s Chief Legal Officer David Drummond commented.

Unfortunately, however, this free speech can only be heard by the U.S. public for now. People outside of the States will have to wait for weeks or months to see a film that was “trending” worldwide on Christmas eve.

And that’s where another group of self proclaimed freedom fighters come in.

Shortly after the first stream was made public various pirated copies quickly started to populate torrent sites and other sharing platforms.

Even The Pirate Bay jumped in by adding the hash of one of The Interview’s torrents to the top left corner of it’s site, linking it to a Google search. In addition, the site added a cartoon picture of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un.

With The Interview making headlines for several weeks, it’s clear there’s a massive interest in the film. This is reflected download statistics too.

Data collected by TorrentFreak shows that The Interview was downloaded an estimated 200.000 times though BitTorrent during the first 10 hours it was available, and this number is still growing rapidly.

Browsing through the commentary on various torrent sites we see that restricted availability is a common topic.

“Just signed up to say Thanks, since it was not released outside of US when it should be all at the same time. Will now be finally able to watch this,” one downloader told his peers.

The Truth About M855 5.56 NATO Ammunition
By Nick Leghorn on March 3, 2015

The White House has said recently that banning “armor piercing” ammunition like the wildly popular M855 round is “common sense” and would make our police officers safer, which is a bold claim. Given the quality of journalism on display among the major networks these days, its no surprise that the facts of the matter have been muddled and obfuscated to the point where the details being presented bear little to no resemblance to the actual facts. Some hyperbole is expected, but in an age when the talking heads on TV start claiming that common rifles can shoot down airplanes and blow up railroads you know that fact checking isn’t high on the priority list. I wanted to take a minute and discuss the truth about the M855 round, what it is, what it does, and why it is being targeted.

When the M-16 was first fielded by the U.S. military, the ammunition that accompanied it was designated the M193 cartridge — a standard “ball” 5.56 round. The 55 grain projectile was of the same construction that had been used in similar projectiles for close to a century, namely a solid lead core surrounded by a copper jacket.

The original specifications for the M-16 rifle were that it needed to penetrate the steel helmet of an enemy soldier at a given distance, and while the lighter overall weight of the projectile reduced the penetration power of the projectile at long distance the designers of the ammunition compensated with increased velocity. Increased velocity meant increased muzzle energy, and provided the power to meet the specifications. That faster yet lighter bullet meant that the cartridges were lighter, and therefore the soldier on the field could carry more ammunition into battle than ever before. Even with the lighter projectile, that “armor piercing” capability was still maintained throughout the design process.

After the Vietnam war, there were some deficiencies that needed to be addressed. Soldiers in the field reported issues with the projectile when it penetrated glass or other intermediate barriers, and wanted a heavier projectile to aid in energy transfer to targets downrange (putting down enemy soldiers more efficiently). While the military did adopt a 77 grain lead projectile for long range shooting, they developed the M855 projectile specifically for hitting targets behind light barriers (like glass and tin and heavy clothing).

m855

The internal construction of an M855 round differs from the standard “ball” M193 cartridge in one very important way: there’s a steel core at the tip of the projectile. The solid steel tip added much needed stability to the projectile when traveling through barriers since there was no longer any soft lead to deform upon impact, and increased the stability and accuracy of the round when traveling over long distances due to the increased mass of the projectile.

There were still some major issues, though. As the barrel length of commonly used firearms continued to decrease, the velocity of the round when it exited the barrel decreased as well. The 5.56 NATO cartridge is highly dependent on velocity to generate the energy it transfers to targets, and lower velocity means a much lower muzzle energy. Some of the most recent studies indicate that with a common 16″ barrel, M855 ammunition has severely degraded performance past 150 yards and is only effective to about 500 meters (versus the 600 meters at which it was designed to penetrate a steel helmet with a standard M-16).

Another issue was the lack of expansion. The lead core in normal “ball” ammunition expands upon impact, which increases the diameter of the projectile and aids in transferring energy from the moving projectile to the target. The more energy is transferred, the greater the wound in the target and the more likely it is to stop that target. Using a steel tip meant that the bullets no longer deformed, and therefore the energy transferred to the target was less than with “ball” 5.56. In other words, the M855 ammunition is actually considered to be less effective against living targets than “ball” 55 grain 5.56 ammo. Or, put another way, standard lead ammunition is considered more deadly than M855.

Wile the Army has moved on to an improved version of the M855 projectile, the cartridge has become popular with long range shooters and hunters. Especially for those hunting hogs in the thick brush of the American south, the M855 cartridge has proven to be capable of accurately and effectively hitting a target even after passing through a couple layers of leaves and underbrush. Its also popular among helicopter hog depredation expeditions for the same reason: it punches through the trees and hits the target. And since the cartridge was developed and produced for the military, a massive quantity of the ammunition is produced every year which leads to low prices for recreational shooters looking for a cheap way to feed their firearms. In short, what was once a “military” round has transitioned very well to civilian life.

In recent days, the projectile has come under increased scrutiny as the ATF prepares to ban it based on the existing prohibition on “Armor Piercing” ammunition. As for what exactly constitutes “armor piercing” ammunition, there is a very specific legal definition that is being used. The following is directly from 18 U.S. Code § 921:

(17)
(A) The term “ammunition” means ammunition or cartridge cases, primers, bullets, or propellent powder designed for use in any firearm.
(B) The term “armor piercing ammunition” means—
(i) a projectile or projectile core which may be used in a handgun and which is constructed entirely (excluding the presence of traces of other substances) from one or a combination of tungsten alloys, steel, iron, brass, bronze, beryllium copper, or depleted uranium; or
(ii) a full jacketed projectile larger than .22 caliber designed and intended for use in a handgun and whose jacket has a weight of more than 25 percent of the total weight of the projectile.
(C) The term “armor piercing ammunition” does not include shotgun shot required by Federal or State environmental or game regulations for hunting purposes, a frangible projectile designed for target shooting, a projectile which the Attorney General finds is primarily intended to be used for sporting purposes, or any other projectile or projectile core which the Attorney General finds is intended to be used for industrial purposes, including a charge used in an oil and gas well perforating device.

What is important to note is that the defining feature of “armor piercing” ammunition is not the actual function of the projectile, but instead the construction. It is possible to construct a cartridge using an “armor piercing” projectile that can’t even pierce skin, but if the construction meets the above criteria then it is illegal.

What has made this change in regulation possible is the prevalence of the AR-15 pistol. Brought to astounding levels of popularity in recent years by the pistol stabilizing brace, the AR-15 pistol is legally a handgun as far as the U.S. government is concerned, and therefore 5.56 ammunition has become by default “projectile […] which may be used in a handgun.” As such, 5.56 NATO ammunition is now subject to regulation under 18 U.S. Code § 921(17)(B).

Technically, M855 ammunition fails to meet the criteria for an “armor piercing” projectile. The requirement of the law is that the projectile be comprised entirely of steel (with trace elements allowed) in order to be classified as “armor piercing,” but as you can see nearly 80% of the mass of the M855 projectile is comprised of standard lead — not steel. However, due to the imprecise wording of the statute it is possible for the ATF and the Attorney General to interpret the law in such a way that M855 meets the required criteria.

This kind of move has been made before. The government classified cheap and commonly available steel core 7.62×39 ammunition as “armor piercing” and banned it from the United States in 1992, as well as 7N6 5.45×39 ammunition only last year. The reasons were the same: with the increase in pistol versions of the AK-47 and AK-74 rifle being produced, the ammunition was now technically a handgun caliber and the broad interpretation of the statute allowed them to take action against those specific projectiles.



The current claim by the White House that M855 ammunition is especially and specifically dangerous due to its “armor piercing” capabilities is, in a word, laughable. The fact is that standard 5.56 ammunition — “ball” ammunition with a traditional lead core — can pierce a “bullet proof” vest just as easily as M855, a fact we have conclusively proven through our own testing. So can commonly available .308 Winchester ammunition, one of the most popular “hunting” cartridges in the world. So can .30-06 Springfield, the “traditional” hunting cartridge in the United States. In fact, almost every full-size and even every intermediate rifle caliber is perfectly capable of piercing the bullet proof vest worn by police officers. The idea that removing this one single projectile from circulation will reduce the lethality of firearms in the United States is quite literally insane.

Let’s look at this from another perspective. According to commonly accepted research, fewer than 2% of crimes are committed with “assault weapons,” including the AR-15 rifle (and pistol variants) that accept this caliber. Note that the most commonly available 5.56 ammunition is 55 grain “ball” ammo and not M855, so even if every single one of those crimes was committed with an AR-15 (which they were not) the probability of M855 ammunition being used in the gun is even smaller than 2%. Even if M855 ammunition was banned, standard “ball” M193 ammunition fails to meet the definition of an “armor piercing” round and therefore is exempt from any possible ban. M193 is plentiful, and available at almost every Wal-Mart in America. Removing M855 ammunition would require a vast amount of effort on the part of the government to implement the ban, impact less than 2% of crimes, and do exactly nothing to remove ammunition that is capable of piercing a “bullet proof” vest from the market. In short, you might as well call whoever is championing this ban “Sisyphus.”

The truth is that, despite the composition of the projectile, M855 ammunition is no greater a threat than any other standard “ball” projectile — traditional hunting rounds included. The 5.56 cartridge has been implicated in far fewer than 2% of crimes in the United States (and M855 in fewer still), and even if it were removed from circulation the remaining millions upon millions of 100% legal projectiles would be able to perform the same function nearly as well. In addition, the projectile has found a legitimate sporting purpose among hunters and sportsmen that the Attorney General has refused to acknowledge. However, due to the lack of any movement on any other front on the issue of gun control, it appears that M855 ammunition has become an unfortunate casualty of a political agenda hell-bent on doing as much damage to American gun owners as possible before leaving office.
