At Least 48 Dead, Millions Without Power in Sandy’s Aftermath

October 31, 2012 Leave a comment

Wednesday, 31 October 2012

‘The misery of superstorm Sandy’s devastation grew Tuesday as millions along the U.S. East Coast faced life without power or mass transit for days, and huge swaths of New York City remained eerily quiet. The U.S. death toll climbed to at least 48, many of the victims killed by falling trees, and rescue work continued.

The storm that made landfall in New Jersey on Monday evening with hurricane force cut power to more than 8.2 million across the East and put the presidential campaign on hold just one week before Election Day.

New York was among the hardest hit, with its financial heart closed for a second day. The storm caused the worst damage in the 108-year history of the city’s subway system, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it could be four or five days before the biggest U.S. transit system was running again.’

European Parliament Kills Global Anti-Piracy Accord ACTA

 The European Parliament on Wednesday declared its independence from a controversial global anti-piracy accord, rejecting the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement.

The vote, 478-39, means the deal won’t come into effect in European Union-member nations, and effectively means ACTA is dead.

Its fate was also uncertain in the United States. Despite the Obama administration signing its intent to honor the deal last year, there was a looming constitutional showdown on whether Congress, not the administration, held the power to sign on to ACTA.

Overall, not a single nation has ratified ACTA, although Australia, Canada, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea last year signed their intent to do so. The European Union, Mexico and Switzerland, the only other governments participating in ACTA’s creation, had not signed their intent to honor the plan.

Powdered dead baby pills used as medical cure-all in South Korea


Thursday, May 10, 2012 by: Ethan A. Huff, staff writer

 
(NaturalNews) Customs officials in South Korea were horrified to discover recently that there is an active, underground drug trade involving powdered, dead babies. Numerous sources confirm that thousands of capsules containing dead baby remains in powdered form were confiscated in recent months in South Korea after travelers tried to smuggle these supposedly “cure-all” drugs in from China.

According to reports, corrupt medical personnel in China are selling aborted and still-born baby corpses to medical companies, which then secretly store them in people’s home refrigerators. When it comes time for processing, these companies then retrieve the bodies, dry them in microwaves, and grind them into powder, which is then injected into capsules.

The Gruesome History of Eating Corpses as Medicine


Tuesday, 08 May 2012 10:32

‘The last line of a 17th century poem by John Donne prompted Louise Noble’s quest. “Women,” the line read, are not only “Sweetness and wit,” but “mummy, possessed.”

Sweetness and wit, sure. But mummy? In her search for an explanation, Noble, a lecturer of English at the University of New England in Australia, made a surprising discovery:

That word recurs throughout the literature of early modern Europe, from Donne’s “Love’s Alchemy” to Shakespeare’s “Othello” and Edmund Spenser’s “The Faerie Queene,” because mummies and other preserved and fresh human remains were a common ingredient in the medicine of that time. In short: Not long ago, Europeans were cannibals.’

SKorea finds smuggled capsules contain human flesh

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea has seized thousands of smuggled drug capsules filled with powdered flesh from dead babies, which some people believe can cure disease, officials said Monday.

The capsules were made in northeastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder, the Korea Customs Service said.

Customs officials refused to say where the dead babies came from or who made the capsules, citing possible diplomatic friction with Beijing. Chinese officials ordered an investigation into the production of drugs made from dead fetuses or newborns last year.
