The Stuxnet Attack On Iran’s Nuclear Plant Was ‘Far More Dangerous’ Than Previously Thought

The Stuxnet virus that ravaged Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility “was far more dangerous than the cyberweapon that is now lodged in the public’s imagination,” cyber security expert Ralph Langer writes in Foreign Policy.

These types of viruses are incredibly destructive and threaten all PLC-controlled infrastructure, at the very least. I wonder if Siemens have redesigned their PLC line to avoid these attacks. So much of our historical infrastructure is completely open to these attacks, including more than likely your home Internet router (not from Stuxnet but from one or more so-called zero day doorways or vectors).

But Stuxnet is not alone. There’s also Duqu.

But that’s not all. There is evidence that Stuxnet had a hand in the nuclear destruction at Fukushima.

Health myth busted! Low-fat dairy promotes weight gain, heart disease and diabetes

As highlighted by Dr. Chris Kresser on his blog, a series of recent studies conclusively shows that consumption of low- and non-fat dairy products encourages the formation of metabolic disease and everything that it entails, including obesity, high cholesterol, insulin resistance, diabetes and heart disease.
A meta-analysis of 16 studies, in fact, co-authored by Dr. Stephen Guyenet, one of Dr. Kresser’s colleagues, found that all of these risk factors are directly associated with low- and non-fat dairy consumption. Conversely, full-fat dairy consumption was found to be associated with a decreased risk of all of these conditions.

No-one seems to consider that many Europeans consume significant amounts of cheese, made from unpasteurised milk and show much lower rates of heart disease and diabetes than the American, etc. counterparts. Perhaps people will begin to look at who is behind the creation of the food pyramid containing so much grain and so little saturated fats. Hint – it’s not in your best interest. Rediscovering the dietary habits of our grandparents, including the same ingredient quality, is a good start.

Shlomo Sand on ‘Why I stopped being a Jew’ & ‘racism in Israeli society’

I have mentioned Shlomo Sand previously in my posts for his book The Invention of the Jewish People”. He is back in the news again, over the proposed legislation to enshrine Israel as a Jewish state, effectively disenfranchising the Arabic and other citizens, leading Sand to denounce being Jewish.

Drone Down: Israel reportedly supporting Syrian rebels

Some evidence that Israel is supporting rebels opposed to Assad. No surprise here.

Five Westminster paedophile rings probed by Scotland Yard

I find it interesting that this level of sexual abuse among British politicians is beginning to emerge. Of course, enquiries into these things are usually squashed by either the higher levels of police or judicial systems through complicit individuals in high places – it’s how the cover is kept in place.

Is there enough momentum here or are we in a time when this will all be revealed and acted upon? Time will tell.
