Fatima: the prophecy, the envelope, the missing words......

Fatima: the prophecy, the envelope, the missing words, 

and the denial of Ratzinger


The Pope Emeritus has branded as “pure inventions” the latest speculations on the third secret, 
according to which the Holy See has not published everything and in which the missing part speaks 
ill of the Council and of the liturgical reform. But it is certain that the matter will not be dismissed
Sister Lucia and Saint John Paul II


“A bad Council and a bad Mass.” This would presumably be the “true” content of the third secret of Fatima that the Vatican has alledgedly kept secret. But Joseph Ratzinger, who guarded it, published it and commented on it, brands as “pure invention” yet another alleged “revelation” on this most discussed and studied prophetic text. 

The Pentecost Scoop  
The revelation appears to be a heavy one. The German theologian Father Ingo Döllinger, a personal friend of Benedict XVI, gave Maike Hickson, on the site OnePeterFive, an announcement nothing short of sensational, telling of a dialogue face-to-face with the then-Cardinal Ratzinger: “Not long after the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima, in June 2000, by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger told Father Döllinger during a face-to-face conversation that there is a part of the Third Secret that they have not yet published! ‘There is more than what we have published’ said Ratzinger. He had also told Döllinger that the published part of the Secret is authentic and that the unpublished part of the Secret speaks of ‘a bad Council and a bad Mass’ that would come in the near future. Father Döllinger gave me permission to publish these facts on the feast of the Holy Spirit and gave me his blessing.” Thus, a new supposed revelation about the alleged unseen content. To date, the speculation about the alleged unpublished content has been divided between the more catastrophic (the announcement of terrible punishments by the Madonna), and ideas more related to the internal life of the Church (in essence, a questioning of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council). This latest release belongs in the second category.  

The Pope Emeritus speaks  
The denial, unedited and brusque, arrived on May 21 through a statement from the Vatican Press Office which reports the quoted comments of Benedict XVI. “Some articles published recently reported statements attributed to Prof. Ingo Döllinger, to whom Card. Ratzinger, following the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima (which took place in June 2000), allegedly confided that the publication was not complete.” “With regard to this.” the statement continues, “Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI announces that he has ‘never talked to Prof. Döllinger about Fatima’, clearly stating that the utterances attributed to Professor Döllinger on this issue ‘are pure inventions, absolutely untrue’ and confirms definitively: ‘the publication of the Third Secret of Fatima is complete.’” The denial is therefore threefold: Ratzinger asserts the inaccuracy of the circumstances (the alleged dialogue with the German theologian of Fatima), of the content (the negative words of Mary on the Council and the Mass arising from the liturgical reform), as well as the rumor of an “undisclosed secret.” 

The mystery of the vision  
The secret of Fatima is contained in a vision that three shepherd children received in 1917. The first two parts, concerning the vision of hell, the Second World War and the consecration of Russia, were revealed early on, while the third part was destined only for the Pope. Sister Lucia dos Santos wrote the third secret in January 1944 and delivered it to the bishop of Leiria-Fatima, José Alves Correia da Silva, in June of that year. The bishop sent it to the Vatican, at the request of the Holy See, in the spring of 1957, towards the end of the pontificate of Pius XII. It is always been said that it was to have been made public in 1960, but John XXIII, as well as Paul VI, felt that they could not do it. It was John Paul II, in May 2000, who made the decision and proposed an interpretation of the vision - the martyrdom of a Pope, “the bishop dressed in white”, and of many Christians - of which he would have been the protagonist with the attack suffered in 1981. The then-Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Joseph Ratzinger, endorsed the operation and wrote a commentary on the prophetic vision, which was presented as something belonging to the past. Subsequently, the same Ratzinger, who became Pope, seemed less inclined to consider the prophecy of Fatime entirely closed, considering the martyrdom of Christians that certainly did not end with the fall of communism, and the attacks that the Church continues to suffer from the inside, by the sin of her members. 

Just one vision. And the words?  
The doubts that were raised after the publication of the 2000 text by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith are based on two issues. The first is an unfinished phrase in the fourth memoir written by Sister Lucia, where she attributes to Our Lady in these words: “In Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, etc.” It seems clear from the context that these are words from the appearance related to the vision of the Third Secret. The participation of the seer-shepherds, at the event of the apparitions, was not equal for all three. In fact, while Sister Lucia saw Our Lady, heard her voice, and could talk to her, Jacinta Marto could see and hear but not speak, while Francisco Marto could only see but heard nothing. Francisco, Lucia’s cousin, was thus always able to see everything, including the vision of hell, but never heard anything of the words spoken by Our Lady, which were instead perceived by his sister and cousin. This was confirmed by the same Sister Lucia in her fourth “memory”, dated 1941. The appearance, speaking of the third part of the secret, would have addressed these words to Lucia and Jacinta: “Francisco, yes, you can tell him.” From this particularity, some argue that the third secret contained not only a vision - that of the martyrdom of Christians and the Pope - but also a set of words that accompanied and interpreted it. In the interrogation of Lucia, during the canonical process in 1924, the seer declared on the subject of the third part of the secret: “Then the Lady said to us a few short words, urging us not to tell anyone, except Francisco only.” 

The double envelope  
The second problem concerns the history of the text of the secret. When it arrived at the Vatican, it was kept in a wooden box in the apartment of Pope Pius XII. It was also deposited at the former Holy Office. In the dossier published by the Holy See in 2000, entitled “The Message of Fatima”, it states that John XXIII read the secret, but decided not to publish it. So it is said that Paul VI asked for the text from the Holy Office and read it on March 27, 1965, almost three years after the election. But the former secretary of Pope John, Loris Capovilla, made statements that do not coincide with this reconstruction. Capovilla, who after the death of Pope Roncalli had been working in the anteroom of his successor, said that Montini asked him, on Thursday, June 27, 1963 - just six days after becoming Pope, and even before the solemn ceremony of coronation, which took place on the 29th - where the third secret was hidden, because he could not find it. Capovilla said that the envelope containing the secret “lies in the drawer of the desk called Barbarigo, in the bedroom.” There, the collaborators of Paul VI recovered it. The inconsistency between the Vatican publication and the words of Capovilla suggests that in fact there may be two texts: the first was kept in the apartment of the Pope, the second in the Holy Office archives. This would mean, according to an unproven hypothesis, that there are two distinct parts of the third secret (which is itself only the third part of a single revelation). The text preserved in the archives would contain only the vision - the one revealed by the Vatican in 2000 - while the envelope that was in the papal apartment would preserve the explanation of that vision, the words of commentary spoken by Our Lady. 

Possible explanations  
The “fatimists” say they are confident that the only possible explanation for these inconsistencies is the existence of two separate texts: the vision and interpretation. The second text would not have been revealed because it is too catastrophic and apocalyptic, or because it contains a negative view of the Council and the liturgical reform. The latter situation causes the frenzy of those who attribute - naively from the historical point of view and interestingly from the point of view of intra-ecclesial battles - the crisis of faith, secularization, and almost all the evils of the Church to Vatican II. They are convinced that if everything had remained crystallized as it was at the time of Pius XII, there would be no secularization, no crisis of vocations or of the family, etc. However, it remains to be explained why John Paul II decided to publish only one part of the third mystery, instead of continuing to keep everything under lock and key. It cannot be excluded, on the other hand, that the inconsistencies are due, more simply, not to the existence of two different texts, but of two different copies of the same secret stored in multiple locations. Another possible explanation is related to the many writings of Sister Lucia, who continued to receive visions and messages, transferring them to the Vatican. It is possible that the Popes had doubts and difficulties in distinguishing the authentic message of the apparition from the interpretations of the seer. 

The words of Amato  
Inasmuch as stated by Benedict XVI, in the rebuttal that represents one of his rare appearances since he renounced the papacy, it was also reiterated a year ago by the Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation of Saints, Angelo Amato, who before arriving at the “halo factory” was second-in-command at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. “I must say that there is no fourth secret” of Fatima, “nor are there other hidden secrets,” he said in May 2015. “When I was Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,” the cardinal wrote, “I had the privilege to have in hand and read the original manuscripts regarding the secrets of Fatima and their message. I have pondered them for a long time because they shed a light of faith and hope on the sad events of the last century and beyond. Let us recall that the twentieth century, long predicted to be dominated by reason and brotherhood among the peoples, in reality was a tragic period for Christianity, as it was persecuted and oppressed in many parts of the world. Without considering the two world wars, the most tragic stations of this evangelical Way of the Cross were sequentially the Armenian genocide, the Mexican repression, the Spanish persecution, the Nazi massacre, the communist extermination, and, in this first part of the third millennium, the Islamist persecution. There are millions of victims of malignant ideologies, which have generated and still generate conflict, hatreds and divisions.”

The word "Jeans" - Derived from 19th Italian Sailors


From the purpose of those little metal buttons to the reason for that fifth pocket, there are a lot of little-known facts about your beloved denim.

But have you ever wondered why they’re actually called jeans? 

According to Hello Giggles, the name is rooted in history. Jeans were invented in the 19th century in the French town of Nimes. In French, the fabric that jeans are made from is called “Serge.” Thus, they were referred to as “Serge de Nimes,” – or “denim” for short. 

OK, so that explains denim – but what about “jeans”?

Denim became extremely popular in Europe – and some of the biggest fans were sailors from Genoa, Italy. Whenever they were in France, the would buy their denim in bulk. The pants were so popular with the sailors, that the material quickly took on a nickname that paid tribute to the Genoa sailors: Jeans.

Device that eavesdrops on the voices in your head !!!!

The device that eavesdrops on the voices in your head: Mind-reaching machine could soon turn your secret thoughts into speech

  • Scientists want reproduce speech from brain recordings in real-time
  • Goal is to help those affected by motor disease such as Lou Gehrig's
  • Such a novel device would communicate people's intended thoughts via an electronic speaker or writing device, the say


A mind-reaching machine that can translate thoughts into speech is coming closer to reality.

The research has been ongoing for several years, and recently, scientists successfully managed to playback a word that someone is thinking by monitoring their brain activity.

While there remains a long way to go, they say this could help victims of stroke and others with speech paralysis to communicate with their loved ones.

A mind-reaching machine that can translate thoughts into speech is coming closer to reality. The research has been ongoing for several years, and recently, scientists successfully managed to playback a word that someone is thinking by monitoring their brain activity

HOW THEY DID IT

Using electrodes placed on the surface of the language areas of the brain of awake patients, scientists monitored the pattern of electrical responses of brain cells during perceived speech.

The scientists then created a computer model that could match spoken sounds to these signals.

The researchers took a clever approach to overcome some important limitations.
For example, they accounted for the natural differences in sound timing when one is producing the same word twice, such as when thinking of the word then by uttering it.

Remarkably, the team was then able to decode speech when a person thinks of a specific word, from direct brain recordings. 

Professor Robert Knight and his team at UC Berkeley have been studying how hearing words, speaking out loud and imagining words involves brain areas that overlap.

'Now, the challenge is to reproduce comprehensible speech from direct brain recordings done while a person imagines a word they would like to say,' said Knight, who is also the Founding Editor of Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.

Knight says the goal of the device is to help people affected by motor disease such as paralysis and Lou Gehrig's Disease.

'There are many neurological disorders that limit speech despite patients being fully aware of what they want to say,' Knight said.

'We want to develop an implantable device that decodes the signals that occur in the brain when we think about a word, then turn these signals into a sound file that can be reproduced by a speech device.'

Such a novel device would communicate people's intended thoughts via an electronic speaker or writing device, but the team still has a lot more research to conduct.

They have been able to reproduce a word a person has just heard on a machine, by monitoring temporal lobe activity in a neurosurgical setting.

Magic mushrooms found to be powerful medicine that CURES depression

Magic mushrooms found to be powerful medicine that CURES depression with a single treatment ... No wonder they're kept illegal by the government!


(NaturalNews) Researchers at Imperial College London recently went to great lengths to obtain psilocybin and use it in clinical tests to investigate its medicinal value for treating severe depression. It took 32 months for the research team to meet all the licensing requirements to even conduct the trial. They also commented that the price per dose was literally 50 times more than what it should have cost in a "sane world."

Twelve participants with severe depression signed up to receive high doses of the banned psilocybin. They were given capsules orally and monitored closely.

The medicinal properties of psilocybin were quickly realized. In just one week, all the participants were free of depression and self loathing. After three months, there were no lingering symptoms of depression whatsoever for five of the participants.

The Beckley Foundation's Amanda Feiling participated in the research, and praised the study: "For the first time in many years, people who were at the end of the road with currently available treatments reported decreased anxiety, increased optimism and an ability to enjoy things."

"This is an unparalleled success and could revolutionise the treatment of depression," she said.

Magic mushrooms are an impressive depression treatment, but they're banned by governments around the world

Even though magic mushrooms continue to prove powerful in healing severe depression, governments around the world have made them illegal. Over 200 species of mushrooms contain the psychedelic substance psilocybin. Governments continue to prove themselves good at separating us from one another, removing us from nature, and tearing us away from all that we are. We can look to skyrocketing incarceration numbers as evidence of our separation from one another. We can look to all the violence initiated by government cartels – as they bust down doors and take innocent lives in search of illegal plants. We can look to all of government's abuses and see how it has always been about trying to control one another and place restrictions on our natural rights as human beings.

Are magic mushrooms the future treatment for severe depression?

Psilocybin provides lasting relief from depression because it works its way into receptors in the brain, disrupting something called the Default Mode Network. This area in the brain is measurably over-reactive in people who are depressed. Psilocybin literally changes how people view themselves and their relationships with the rest of the world. It has been known to elicit a spiritual "awakening" in some people, giving them an entirely new perspective on what it means to be alive.

Still, Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris, from Imperial College London, doesn't want people going around picking magic mushrooms to treat their own depression. This might even cause people to fabricate depression so that they can find a reason to eat magic mushrooms. This could cause a cycle of psychological dependence. While magic mushrooms are not chemically addictive, they can easily elicit psychological dependence, and not everyone has reported pleasant experiences.

As the research team seeks funding from the Medical Research Council to conduct further tests, they do reason that it will be extremely hard to set up placebo trial studies because it will be nearly impossible to disguise any differences between a psilocybin trip and something that's inert. Dr. Robin Carhart-Harris noted: "Psychedelic drugs have potent psychological effects and are only given in our research when appropriate safeguards are in place, such as careful screening and professional therapeutic support."

Since SSRI pharmaceutical "antidepressant" pills cause sleeping problems, weight gain and suicidal thoughts, magic mushrooms are just waiting to be explored as natural treatments for severe depression. With 350 million people affected by severe depression worldwide, and with pharmaceutical approaches currently not working, the resurrection of magic mushrooms as psychological and spiritual healing has never been more important.

The Dark Photon

Physicists and the Fifth Force of Nature?


Scientists have long known the four forces: Gravity, electromagnetism, and the weak and strong forces between atoms. But could there be a fifth force still waiting to be discovered? New evidence suggests there is.
Physics can be pretty intense at times, but one of the most straightforward aspects is that everything in the Universe is controlled by just four fundamental forces: gravity,electromagnetic, and strong and weak nuclear forces.
But now physicists in Hungary think they might have found evidence of a mysterious fifth force of nature. And, if verified, it would mean we’d need to rethink our understanding of how the Universe actually works.
Before we get into that, let’s go back to those four forces for a second, because they’re pretty important. They’re a fundamental part of the standard model of physics, which explain all the behaviour and particles we see in the Universe.

MEET THE FORCES

Starting from the larger end of the scale, gravity is responsible for holding together the planets and gravity, and electromagnetic force is in charge of keeping our molecules together.
PBS
PBS
“At the smallest level are the two other forces: the strong nuclear force is the glue for atomic nuclei, and the weak nuclear force helps some atoms go through radioactive decay,” writes Ryan F. Mandelbaum for Popular Science“These forces seemed to explain the physics we can observe, more or less.”
Evidence of this fifth force was spotted last year, when a team from the Hungarian Academy of Science reported that they’d fired protons at lithium-7, and in the fall out, had detected a brand new super-light boson that was only 34 times heavier than an electron.
As exciting as that sounds, the paper was mostly overlooked, until a team in the US published their own analysis of the data at the end of last month, on pre-print site arXiv.
The US team, led by Jonathan Feng from the University of California, Irvine, showed that the data didn’t conflict with previous experiments, and calculated that the new boson could indeed be carrying a fifth fundamental force – which is when the science world started to get interested.
That paper hasn’t been peer-reviewed as yet, so we can’t get too excited, but it was uploaded so that the other physicists could scrutinise the results and add their own findings, which is what’s happening now.
As Nature magazine reports, researchers around the world are racing to conduct follow-up tests to verify the Hungarian discovery, and we can expect results within around a year.
But if you’re anything like me, you’re probably wondering, what does a super-light boson have to do with a new force of nature?

THE LATEST WORK

This isn’t the first time researchers have claimed to detect a fifth force (there’s even aWikipedia page for fifth force possibilities), but the search has really heated up over the past decade. Many scientists think there might be a particle out there called a ‘dark photon’, which could carry a new force that would explain dark matter – that invisible substance that makes up more than 80 percent of the Universe’s mass.
That’s what the Hungarian team, led by physicist Attila Krasznahorkay, were looking for. To do that, they fired protons at thin targets of lithium-7, a collision that created unstable beryllium-8 nuclei, which then decayed into pairs of electrons and positrons.
“According to the standard model, physicists should see that the number of observed pairs drops as the angle separating the trajectory of the electron and positron increases,” Edwin Cartlidge writes for Nature.
“Perhaps we are seeing our first glimpse into physics beyond the visible Universe.”
But that wasn’t what the team saw – at about 140 degrees, the number of these pairs jumped, creating a little bump before dropping off again at higher angles.
This ‘bump’ was evidence of a new particle, according to Krasznahorkay and his team. They calculated that the mass of this new particle would be around 17 megaelectronvolts, which isn’t what was expected for the ‘dark photon’, but could be evidence of something else entirely.
“We are very confident about our experimental results,” Krasznahorkay told Nature.He says that the chance of this bump being an anomaly is around 1 in 200 billion (but let’s keep in mind that no other team has confirmed this as yet.)
The analysis by Feng’s team in the US didn’t involve a repeat of the experiment, but simply used calculations to verify that, theoretically at least, the proposed super-light boson Krasznahorkay detected could be capable of carrying a new fundamental force.
Like all good scientists, the physics community is pretty skeptical about the claims so far, especially seeing as the super-light boson wasn’t what anyone expected to find.
“It certainly isn’t the first thing I would have written down if I were allowed to augment the standard model at will,” Jesse Thaler from MIT, who wasn’t involved in either study, toldNature. But he admitted that he’s paying attention to what happens next. “Perhaps we are seeing our first glimpse into physics beyond the visible Universe,” he added.
If the international research community sticks to its word and gives us some more data to analyse in the next year, hopefully we won’t have to wait too long to find out

Google aims to kill passwords by the end of this year

Google aims to kill passwords by the end of this year

Alex Hern May 24, 2016

Android users will be able to log in to services using a combination of their face, typing patterns and how they move

Google will begin testing an alternative to passwords next month, in a move that could do away with complicated logins for good.
The new feature, introduced to developers at the company’s I/O conference, is called the Trust API, and will initially be tested with “several very large financial institutions” in June, according to Google’s Daniel Kaufman.
Kaufman is the head of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects group, where the Trust API was first created under the codename Project Abacus. Introduced last year, Abacus aims to kill passwords not through one super-secure replacement, but by mixing together multiple weaker indicators into one solid piece of evidence that you are who you say you are.
Among the pieces of evidence that Google suggests the Trust API could use are some obvious biometric indicators, such as your face shape and voice pattern, as well as some less obvious ones: how you move, how you type and how you swipe on the screen. With the service continually running in the background of the phone, it can keep track of whether those indicators match how it knows you use your phone.
Individually, it would be ludicrous to use any of those methods to secure web services. Even facial recognition, now built in to many Android phones, is significantly less secure than a fingerprint scanner, according to Google’s own metrics. But combining them can, the company suggests, result in something more than 10 times as secure as a fingerprint.
This year, Google showed how Trust API has built on the Project Abacus base. The service will be open to third parties, allowing other organisations to very your identity through the API. Initially, banks will use it to verify customers logging in through Android, but “by the end of the year”, it should be available to every developer.

Google isn’t the only organisation working on such a plan. London-basedNok Nok Labs has a similar proposal in place, linking information from manufacturers, mobile networks and users together in a web of trust.Crucial to the API is opening up the service’s estimates of security. Rather than giving a binary answer, as a password does, the API can hand over a score to indicate how confident it is that you really are you. If the institution needs more confidence, it can feed back and ask for additional mechanisms: more biometric data, for instance, or an old-style password.
Richard Lack, of customer identity management firm Gigya, says approaches like Google’s are likely to pay off. “Consumers tell us that they are struggling to remember what is now an average of over 100 passwords in Europe. At a time when the number of devices we own is rising sharply, this frustration has relegated the registration process to being the most broken thing about the internet. The future lies in methods of authentication without passwords, which consumers clearly favour, both in terms of convenience and enhanced security.
“Biometric authentication is a powerful enabler, allowing businesses smart enough to deploy it to significantly increase rates of registration, gaining data and insight about their customers, while also increasing customer security. This is a win/win scenario which sounds the death-knell for awkward and insecure passwords sooner than we may imagine.”
Google declined to comment.

E-Coli Superbug In US – Totally Resistant To Antibiotics

BREAKING NEWS – E-Coli Superbug In US – Totally Resistant To Antibiotics – The End of The Road



Source: http://www.commondreams.org/news/2016/05/27/dreaded-nightmare-bacteria-resistant-all-antibiotics-finally-here

For the first time, researchers have found a person in the United States carrying bacteria resistant to antibiotics of last resort, an alarming development that the top U.S. public health official says could mean “the end of the road” for antibiotics.
The antibiotic-resistant strain was found last month in the urine of a 49-year-old Pennsylvania woman. Defense Department researchers determined that she carried a strain of E. coli resistant to the antibiotic colistin, according to a study published Thursday in Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, a publication of the American Society for Microbiology. The authors wrote that the discovery “heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria.”
Colistin is the antibiotic of last resort for particularly dangerous types of superbugs, including a family of bacteria known as CRE, which health officials have dubbed “nightmare bacteria.” In some instances, these superbugs kill up to 50 percent of patients who become infected. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has called CRE among the country’s most urgent public health threats.
It’s the first time this colistin-resistant strain has been found in a person in the United States. In November, public health officials worldwide reacted with alarm when Chinese and British researchers reported finding the colistin-resistant strain in pigs, raw pork meat and in a small number of people in China. The deadly strain was later discovered in Europe and elsewhere.
“It basically shows us that the end of the road isn’t very far away for antibiotics — that we may be in a situation where we have patients in our intensive-care units, or patients getting urinary tract infections for which we do not have antibiotics,” CDC Director Tom Frieden said in an interview Thursday.
“I’ve been there for TB patients. I’ve cared for patients for whom there are no drugs left. It is a feeling of such horror and helplessness,” Frieden added. “This is not where we need to be.”
The Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to solve our biggest global challenges and bring people everywhere a better quality of life.

Thursday’s study did not disclose further details about the Pennsylvania woman or the outcome of her case. The authors could not be reached for comment. A spokesman at the Pennsylvania Department of Health was not immediately available to comment on the case.CDC officials are working with Pennsylvania health authorities to interview the patient and family to identify how she may have contracted the bacteria, including reviewing recent hospitalizations and other health-care exposures. CDC hopes to screen the patient and her contacts to see if others might be carrying the organism. Local and state health departments also will be collecting cultures as part of the investigation.
Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr. (D-Pa.) said he is concerned about the reports. In a statement, Casey said he supported legislation for and participated in hearings about antibiotic-resistant bacteria, which he said “present an urgent public health problem that we must focus on intensively.”
He said he planned to get a full briefing on the case in the coming days.
Scientists and public health officials have long warned that if the resistant bacteria continue to spread, treatment options could be seriously limited. Routine operations could become deadly. Minor infections could become life-threatening crises. Pneumonia could be more and more difficult to treat.
Already, doctors had been forced to rely on colistin as a last-line defense against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The drug is hardly ideal. It is more than half a century old and can seriously damage a patient’s kidneys. And yet, because doctors have run out of weapons to fight a growing number of infections that evade more modern antibiotics, it has become a critical tool in fighting off some of the most tenacious infections.
Bacteria develop antibiotic resistance in two ways. Many acquire mutations in their own genomes that allow them to withstand antibiotics, although that ability can’t be shared with pathogens outside their own family.
Other bacteria rely on a shortcut: They get infected with something called a plasmid, a small piece of DNA, carrying a gene for antibiotic resistance. That makes resistance genes more dangerous because plasmids can make copies of themselves and transfer the genes they carry to other bugs within the same family as well as jump to other families of bacteria, which can then “catch” the resistance directly without having to develop it through evolution.
The colistin-resistant E. coli found in the Pennsylvania woman has this type of resistance gene.
Public health officials say they have expecting this resistance gene to turn up in the United States.
“This is definitely alarming,” said David Hyun, a senior officer leading an antibiotic-resistance project at the Pew Charitable Trust. “The fact that we found it in the United States confirms our suspicions and adds urgency to actions we need to work on antibiotic stewardship and surveillance for this type of resistance.”
Late last year, as part of a broader budget deal, Congress agreed to give hundreds of millions of dollars to the federal agencies engaged in the battle against antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
The largest chunk of that money, more than $150 million, was slated to go to the CDC as part of an effort to build and strengthen capacity at state and local health departments to prevent and monitor superbug outbreaks.
Other funding went to the National Institutes of Health for research on combating antimicrobial resistance, as well as to an agency known as BARDA, which works on national preparedness for chemical and biological threats, including developing new therapies.

The mark of the beast is truly coming about right before our very eyes. Google recently patented a device which is worse than the RFID chip and could easily be considered the actual Mark of the Beast called the Vampire Watch. What was quietly patented in 2014 by Google has only recently been revealed.
It is a well-known fact that Google works hand in hand with the United States government, and it is no surprise that Google will play a major role in the downfall of mankind. Google is a wicked machine which seeks the destruction of freedom and the destruction of man.
The Vampire watch will work similar to a “mini particle accelerator”. This is where CERN and every other company around the globe operating particle accelerators play their role in bringing about the end times.
A particle accelerator that sucks your blood, and sends data back to the system is almost exactly what is described as the Mark of the Beast in the Bible.
May 23rd, 2016 marks the day that the world changed forever, today is the day that an RFID implant was used in its first transaction; marking the beginning of the Mark of the Beast.
“Just when you thought our data-driven lifestyles were getting a little weird, Google wants to make it creepy. The company just filed a patent application for a “needle-free blood draw” device that can be implanted in a wearable. It’s the vampiric smartwatch you never asked for.
All jokes aside, the invention looks pretty interesting and possibly deeply helpful for diabetics. As with the embattled startup Theranos, the new Google design isn’t exactly needle-free. It’s basically a really slick finger-pricking gadget that works by blasting a gas-powered microparticle into the skin and then draws a small vial of blood into a pressurized container. The device comes in a few different configurations, including the aforementioned blood-sucking wearable, and can be used to measure glucose levels.”
It is vital that mankind understands that there is no aspect of this device which will benefit our health. This device will be used when in production to control, drug, and enslave mankind just as Revelation 13:16 GNV states
16 [a]And he made all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive [b]a [c]mark in their right hand or in their foreheads.
These are wicked times, like no other; surely people will wake up to the atrocities that Google commits almost daily. Surely, people will finally understand what yet another purpose of the particle accelerators are actually for; they are for opening dimensions which means that demonic spirits can easily walk in and out of your vessel. That is why it is called enslavement and that is another reason why it is called the mark of the beast.
