Student Suspended For Saying “Bless You” In Class – “No Godly Speaking!”


 

 

Kendra Turner, 17, of Dyersburg, Tennessee was suspended because she said ‘bless you’ to another student who sneezed.

It seems that the teacher has a list of words you can’t say in class, and ‘bless you’ is on the list. The teacher told the Turner “Now we will not have godly speaking in my class.”

Kendra is accused of ‘shouting’ the phrase from across the classroom and continuing to defend her use of the phrase after the teacher called her out for breaking the rules on ‘godly speaking’.

Muslim Truckers Refuse to Deliver Beer Because of Religion, Obama Does Just What You’d Expect…


Barack Obama just sided with Muslims to enforce Islamic Sharia Law on an American business. He took a very different position in contrast to the case of Christians trying to assert their religious beliefs.

Two Muslim truck drivers — former Somali “refugees” —  refused to make deliveries of beer to stores for their employer. So they were understandably fired.

They claimed it was a violation of their religious beliefs — even though Islam bars only the consumption of alcohol. And, as the employer pointed out, the workers knew they would have to deliver alcohol before they took the job.

I bet you’ll never guess what Barack Obama did. 

He SUED the employers it on behalf of the pair, Mahad Abass Mohamed and Abdkiarim Hassan Bulshale, claiming religious discrimination.

Obama’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) represented them in the case, providing tens of thousands of  taxpayer dollars in legal support, judicial filings and court appearances against the employer who was hopelessly outgunned by the Federal government.

 And this week the Muslims were awarded a stunning $240,000 by a jury, presided over by an Obama appointee who stunned analysts by allowing the case to go forward at all.

Fox News hosts Megyn Kelly and Andrew Napolitano were flabbergasted:

“The Obama administration actually represented the two Muslims in this case. But has sometimes taken a very different position in the case of Christians trying to assert their religious beliefs.”

She then said to Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano:

“So in the case of the Muslim truck drivers, the Obama administration through the EEOC is all in. This is what they said:

‘We are proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrifice their religious beliefs or practices; it’s fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.’

But when it comes to the Christian bakers, it’s not as fundamental.”

melissa-cakes

Napolitano was equally perplexed:

“It’s unfortunate when the government interferes in a private dispute over religious views, and takes sides, and chooses one religion over another.”

To their point, the Christian owners of “Melissa’s Sweet Cakes” were fined $135,000 by the state of Oregon for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a lesbian couple. And Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Napolitano offered an explanation for the administration’s interest in the Muslim truck driver case:

“The way the feds intervened … they wanted this case because they wanted to make the point that they’ve now made.”

The U.S government and the courts can’t legally have one set of laws for Christians and another set of laws for Muslims and other religious groups.

But now they do. Obama’s actions and this court’s ruling throws into relief that not all Americans are legally recognized as possessing religious liberty and freedom of conscience.

As George Orwell might put it, Obama has now established that Muslims are more equal than Christians in America.

New Scientific Discovery May Have Located Actual Hell Where We Least Expected It!


DesktopThe_Door_to_Hell

Is Hell on another world? A new discovery by scientists opens that possibility. Could this be the missing piece to the puzzle?

Journey there now, here is the story.

Scientists have been hunting for planets outside of our Solar System – exoplanets – for decades, and we’ve found an incredible tapestry: some appear potentially habitable, some appear to orbit two stars rather than one, and some are simply enormous. Every now and then, a new type of exoplanet is discovered, and perhaps none are as strange as CoRoT-7b. This world is covered in oceans of lava, riddled with cataclysmic volcanism, and contains an atmosphere of vaporized rock that is being eaten away by its star’s extreme heat. It is hell in deep space.

One Volcanic Planet to Rule Them All

Io, inarguably, is the volcanic king of our Solar System. Its internal heat is generated by a mechanism known as tidal heating. Jupiter’s immense gravitational pull, amplified by two other moons, tears Io’s innards apart, turning solid rock into molten magma, which erupts spectacularly on its surface. This violent heat escape, aided by Io’s very low atmospheric pressure, produces eruption plumes that reach heights of 500 kilometers (310 miles), higher than sixty Mount Everests stacked on top of each other.

VolcanoPlanet

But the exoplanet CoRoT-7b, found far from our little corner of the galaxy, puts Io to shame: It is the stripped remains of a gas giant, once a vast super planet before being blasted by its chaotic parent star’s paroxysmal radiation. It is now a bizarre world of extreme temperature differences, destructive volcanoes, and persistently molten lava, located in the constellation of Monoceros.

A Song of Ice and Fire

CoRoT-7b, named after the French Space Agency telescope that discovered it, orbits a star 480 light-years from Earth, meaning that we are seeing it as it would have looked during the time of Leonardo da Vinci. It is five times heavier than the Earth, roughly twice the size of our planet, and definitely rocky. But the similarities with Earth end there.

Firstly, the immense gravitational pull that its parent star has on it means that its rotation has been altered: It fully turns on its axis only once as it makes a single orbit of the star. This means that one side (hemisphere) is always facing the star and one is always facing away. This is known as tidal locking, a phenomenon observed with our own Moon.

Consequently, the far side of this planet is always in the star’s shadow, with temperatures dropping as low as -210°C (-350°F); this is despite the planet being 23 times closer to its yellow dwarf star than Mercury is to our own Sun.

“CoRoT-7b is almost 60 times closer to its star than Earth, so the star appears almost 360 times larger than the sun does in our sky,” Brian Jackson, a researcher at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, said in a statement.

The side bombarded with starlight and solar radiation is far from cold. With temperatures of up to 2,200°C (4,000°F), it is hot enough to vaporize any known rock. This means that most solid substances on this side of the planet would immediately sublimate, changing from a solid to a gas and bypassing any liquid phase.

Remarkably, the atmosphere of this hellish world could have weather just like we experience on Earth, with clouds that produce rain, but with one major difference. Instead of condensing water falling from the sky as rain, the atmosphere of CoRoT-7b is likely made up of vaporized rock, which sometimes condenses and falls out of the alien sky as solid pebbles.

A Ghost of a Planet

This unprecedented surface heating is clearly causing vaporization at incredible speeds, and some researchers think that this planet may even be losing its atmosphere into space altogether. In fact, when Jackson’s team of researchers modeled the atmosphere of CoRoT-7b, they found that there would be no discernible amounts of gases normally found in rocky planetary atmospheres.

A study modeling this planet’s mass loss through this heating mechanism revealed something striking: When the planet first formed, it should have had the same mass as over100 Earths, probably orbiting about 50 times the distance from its parent star than it is presently. Could this exoplanet have once been a huge gas giant?

Recent planetary models show that gas giants in other star systems tend to quickly tumble towards their parent stars after forming, gobbling up the inner rocky planets as they do. In fact, the only reason this didn’t happen to our own Solar System – with Jupiter tumbling inwards and consuming the protoplanetary material for Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury – is because Saturn formed behind it, pulling at it with its strong gravitational field and stopping its descent.

Gas giants that do fall towards their parent star, known as “hot Jupiters,” begin to violently evaporate as they do, with the hydrogen and helium gases in their atmospheres sublimating into space. CoRoT-7b could have suffered the same fate: It could have been a gas giant in ancient times before falling inwards, its atmosphere fading away. This means that, right now, CoRoT-7b could be the remnant of a gas giant’s core, a ghost of a once-mighty planet.

Terrifyingly, even if it was originally just a rocky planet, much of its mass would have been removed as it fell towards it parent star anyway due to the extreme temperatures its star-facing hemisphere experienced.

“You could say that, one way or the other, this planet is disappearing before our eyes,” Jackson said. “CoRoT-7b may be the first in a new class of planet – evaporated remnant cores.”

A Volcanic Nightmare

CoRoT-7b’s bizarre history isn’t even its most dramatic feature. The same tidal heating mechanism that generates the volcanism on Io could be at work here, with two nearby planets perturbing the orbit of CoRoT-7b, tearing up its interior and generating vast amounts of heat. This heat will want to escape into space, and it will do so as spectacular volcanic eruptions. The dayside will certainly experience powerful volcanism, but even the side in perpetual night will have some activity.

Weirdly, this means that any nightside volcanic eruption will launch molten material into a freezing cold environment, which will cool rapidly and fall back as volcanic snow.

Either way, planetary scientists and volcanologists think that this gigantic rock could be home to more intensely violent volcanic eruptions than our Solar System’s own Io, leading to the invention of a category of new exoplanets: the Super-Ios. At the very least, it is certainly a lava world, with oceans of liquid fire covering much of its surface.

We do have some quirky volcanoes in our own Solar System. Enceladus has cryovolcanoes– yes, volcanoes made of ice. The water there is the equivalent of magma and lava on Earth, and the ice stands in for solid rock. Venusian volcanism produces colossal pancakes, but not the sort of ones you might like to ingest. The lava that oozes unceremoniously out of Venus’ volcanoes spreads out over vast distances, crushed under the planet’s extreme atmospheric pressures.

CoRoT-7b is indubitably stranger than them all; it is a hellish world in the depths of space, making Io look fairly tame in comparison.

Or, maybe we have all this backwards?

Nicola Tesla – Government Confiscated, and Lost His Greatest Secrets – So They Say…


As each year passes, the character known as Nikola Tesla (1856-1943), a Serbian-American inventor, a revolutionary electrical and mechanical engineer – becomes more and more enigmatic, and so too does the mystery surrounding him…

Teslabanner

Today in 2014, his work and legacy is all around us – his invention of alternating currents and remote control signals are integrated in almost every device we use today.

Nikola Tesla held over seven hundred patents. A short list of some of his inventions include the following:

* Alternating current. (No, it was not Thomas Edison.)

* Radio (No, it was not Marconi.)

* Wireless communication. (Cell phones before there were ordinary    phones.)

* Fluorescent lights.

* Induction motor.

* Radio-controlled vehicles.

* Rotating magnetic field principle.

* Tesla coil.

* Developed shadowgraphs, which were later used by Roentgen in his discovery of X-rays.

* Tesla created man-made lighting in the 1800s.

* Tesla lit two hundred electric lamps 25 miles away without wires!

* Tesla installed the first power-generating machinery at Niagra Falls, bringing electric power to Buffalo, New York in 1896.

* Tesla discovered terrestrial stationary waves, proving the earth could be used as a conductor for electrical vibrations.

The induction motor alone is responsible for virtually every electric motor you have ever encountered: vacuum cleaners, hair dryers, washers, refrigerators, fans, and on and on. You have probably never heard of the Tesla coil, but it is widely used in radio and television sets before LCD technology came along.
What happened to all of his notes, papers and research? It went to the four winds, and with that, much of the man’s knowledge and innovation had dispersed. Some entity did, in fact, seize and study papers regarding his particle beam or ‘death ray’ project, after his death.

After Nikola Tesla died, there was a scramble by the United States government to find all of his papers, notes and research before other foreign powers could find them. Tesla’s nephew, Sava Kosanovic, reported that before the OAP had arrived, someone else had obviously gone through Tesla’s belongings and took an unknown amount of personal notes and papers.

It was known by the FBI that German intelligence had already spirited away a sizable amount of Tesla’s research several years before his death.

The United States was going to make sure that this would not happen again. Anything even remotely associated with the great man was quickly confiscated and lost within the secret networks of pre-World War II America.

The Pentagon claims that, yes, they did take them, but that they had “lost” them.

The film below suggests that indeed, the Pentagon adopted key aspects of Tesla’s technologies after he died, but the mystery only begins here…

Someone named a car after him…

But other than that the average school child never hears anything about him, his life and his incredible work.

Our world literally runs on his inventions. So why isn’t he more famous?

For one thing, Thomas Edison hated him and the Edison companies had the power to work anti-PR against him and his reputation and they did.

More intriguing is the suggestion that the Pentagon far from not being able to understand his papers which they seized after he died, they not only understood what was in them, they are also using his ideas… but don’t want us to know. Thus making Tesla disappear from history.

However it happened, it was done. The man who invented the modern world is, for all practical purposes, unknown today…

while in Colorado Springs, Tesla intercepted communications from extraterrestrial beings who were secretly controlling mankind. These creatures were slowly preparing humans for eventual conquest and domination, using a program that had been in place since the creation of humankind, but was now accelerating due to Earth’s increased scientific awareness.

Tesla wrote about his years of research to interpret the strange radio signals, and his attempts to notify the government and military concerning what he had learned, but his letters apparently went unanswered.

Tesla's financier John Jacob Astor was drowned with the Titanic!
Tesla’s financier John Jacob Astor was drowned with the Titanic!

Tesla spoke in confidence to several of his benefactors, including Colonel John Jacob Astor, who owned the Waldorf Astoria hotel. These benefactors listened to Tesla and secretly funded what was to be the start of mankind’s first battle to regain control of its own destiny. A battle set in motion by Nikola Tesla.

While this information seems absolutely incredible, Tesla did give occasional hints to his predicament in various newspaper and magazine interviews.

Tesla may have elaborated on the subject in an article called:

Talking With the Planets, in Colliers Weekly (March 1901).

As I was improving my machines for the production of intense electrical actions, I was also perfecting the means for observing feeble efforts. One of the most interesting results, and also one of great practical importance, was the development of certain contrivances for indicating at a distance of many hundred miles an approaching storm, its direction, speed and distance traveled.

It was in carrying on this work that for the first time I discovered those mysterious effects which have elicited such unusual interest. I had perfected the apparatus referred to so far that from my laboratory in the Colorado mountains I could feel the pulse of the globe, as it were, noting every electrical change that occurred within a radius of eleven hundred miles.

Ican never forget the first sensations I experienced when it dawned upon me that I had observed something possibly of incalculable consequences to mankind.

Ifelt as though I were present at the birth of a new knowledge or the revelation of a great truth. My first observations positively terrified me, as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural, and I was alone in my laboratory at night; but at that time the idea of these disturbances being intelligently controlled signals did not yet present itself to me.

The changes I noted were taking place periodicallyand with such a clear suggestion of number and order that they were not traceable to any cause known to me. I was familiar, of course, with such electrical disturbances as are produced by the sun, Aurora Borealis, and earth currents, and I was as sure as I could be of any fact that these variations were due to none of these causes.

The nature of my experiments precluded the possibility of the changes being produced by atmospheric disturbances, as has been rashly asserted by some. It was some time afterward when the thought flashed upon my mind that the disturbances I had observed might be due to an intelligent control.

Although I could not decipher their meaning, it was impossible for me to think of them as having been entirely accidental.

The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another. A purpose was behind these electrical signals.”

Why is it that there has been little written about Tesla’s belief that he had listened in on alien radio signals? Perhaps the truth has been kept secret…

esla believed it’s absurd to think we’re the only intelligent beings in the universe and if there are indeed intelligent beings, wouldn’t they want to communicate with other “civilized” beings? Tesla reported this otherworldly communication and proclaimed his belief in extraterrestrials in February of 1901, in an article for Collier’s Weekly: 

“As I was improving my machines for the production of intense electrical actions, I was also perfecting the means for observing feeble efforts. One of the most interesting results and also one of great practical importance, was the development of certain contrivances for indicating at a distance of many hundred miles an approaching storm, its direction, speed and distance traveled.

“It was in carrying on this work that for the first time I discovered those mysterious effects which have elicited such unusual interest. I had perfected the apparatus referred to so far that from my laboratory in the Colorado mountains I could feel the pulse of the lobe, as it were, noting every electrical change that occurred within a radius of eleven hundred miles.

“I can never forget the first sensations I experienced when it dawned upon me that I had observed something possibly of incalculable consequences to mankind. I felt as though I were present at the birth of a new knowledge or the revelation of a great truth. My first observations positively terrified me as there was present in them something mysterious, not to say supernatural, and I was alone in my laboratory at night; but at that time the idea of these disturbances being intelligently controlled signals did not yet present itself to me.“

“The changes I noted were taking place periodically and with such a clear suggestion of number and order that they were not traceable to any cause known to me. I was familiar, of course, with such electrical disturbances as are produced by the sun, Aurora Borealis, and earth currents, and I was as sure as I could be of any fact that these variations were due to none of these causes.“

“The nature of my experiments precluded the possibility of the changes being produced by atmospheric disturbances, as has been rashly asserted by some. It was sometime afterward when the thought flashed upon my mind that the disturbances I had observed might be due to an intelligent control.

“Although I could not at the time decipher their meaning, it was impossible for me to think of them as having been entirely accidental. The feeling is constantly growing on me that I had been the first to hear the greeting of one planet to another. A purpose was behind these electrical signals.”

Nikola Tesla became in some way obsessed with received other radio signals from other planets and based on the transmission he received he developed a theory that there has been extraterrestrial presence on earth and that the universe, somewhere harbors intelligent extraterrestrial lifeforms. DidTesla have direct contact with ET’s? And is it possible that through this communication he was able to obtain the necessary knowledge to develop some of the mayor inventions like wireless energy transmission or rotating magnetic field way ahead of his time?

Atomic-model / solar System. Credit unknown

Tesla talked about atoms working like solar systems, and that light could work as a wave and a particle. Einstein got a Nobel Prize for saying light worked like a particle, and Bohr and Rutherford got aNobel Prize for saying that atoms were like little solar systems. Tesla was close to winning the Nobel Prize  in the early 1900’s, but mysteriously he never did.

Why was Tesla removed from the “nucleus” of quantum physics when he was practically one of it’s “fathers”.

In 1934 Tesla made headlines with his most controversial invention, “the death beam” which according to Tesla, could generate enough energy to bring down a fleet of 10,000 airplanes at a distance of 250 miles away. Tesla discovered that he could direct a beam of plasma with solid particles for long distances through the air like a lightning bolt. 

Tesla, UFO’s and flying machines

According to historians, Tesla began work on his flying machine in 1910, focusing on the use of field propulsion, or anti-gravity Tesla had discovered that high amounts of electricity could actually create lift in an object. Tesla talked about anti-gravity ships that could derive power from his Wardenclyffe Towers that were broadcasting energy. Tesla’s models did not include wings nor fuel they were completely electric flying machines.

If Tesla did in fact work on anti-gravity flying machines, is there any proof? Well… there actually is, you only have to look at the depictions of flying machines in ancient Hindu texts like the Mahabharata that could really prove that Tesla had otherworldly knowledge and help to design anti-gravity spaceships. The list of technologies that can be traced back to the drawing board of Nikola Tesla is endless: Modern humanoid robotics, solar and wind power, weather manipulation, drones and even planetary exploration vehicles. But Tesla’s interests went beyond inventions and technology.

Nikola Tesla was obsessed with the number three and he was very interested in numerology to the point he had to circle a building three times before entering it, you could say that he was a very superstitious man. He had calculated nodal points around the planet and they were probably linked to the numbers three, six and nine and Tesla claimed that these numbers were extremely important.

If you knew the magnificence of the three, six and nine, you would have a key to the universe. – Nikola Tesla

The number “three”

If we go to the Great Pyramid of Giza, not only are there the three larger pyramids at Giza, all side by side, mirroring the positions of the stars in Orion’s Belt, but we also see a group of three smaller pyramids immediately away from the three larger pyramids.  We find lots of evidence that nature uses threefold and sixfold symmetry, including the hexagonal tile shape of the common honeycomb. These shapes are in nature, and the ancients emulated these shapes in the building of their sacred architecture. Is it possible that there is something special about the mysterious number three? is it possible that Tesla uncovered this profound secret and used this knowledge to push the boundaries of science and technology?

Earlier in his career, while conducting research with one of his transformer coils, Nikola Tesla had a near-death experience when he came in contact with a resonating electromagnetic charge of three and a half million volts. Tesla was working with 60-foot lightning bolts and he made a mistake where he almost got electrocuted.
He barely escaped with his life, and because of the shock that he had, he claimed to have had a revelation where he entered a state of timelessness where he could see the past, the future and the present all at once in this mystic vision, but he was paralyzed and he couldn’t do anything about it. He claimed that he was moved through time and space. 

The Philadelphia Experiment

philadelphia

Just before his death, Nikola Tesla was working with another genius, Albert Einsteinon a project for the United States Navy at the Philadelphia Naval Yard where  they were trying to create an electromagnetically charged invisibility cloak for the  USS Eldridge. The experiment was allegedly based on an aspect of the unified field theory, a term coined by Albert Einstein.The Unified Field Theory aims to describe mathematically and physically the interrelated nature of the forces that comprise electromagnetic radiation and gravity, although to date, no single theory has successfully expressed these relationships in viable mathematical or physical terms.

Basically they were trying to create a stealth technology. they mounted a large number of Tesla coils to create a plasma field around the ship, which makes the ship “invisible” to radar, but something unexpected occurred during the process.

The ship didn’t just disappear from radar, according to reports the USS Eldridge disappeared completely and reappeared with some of the crew “embedded” into the metal of the ship. Mainstream scientists believe the so-called Philadelphia Experiment is a just hoax, but some insist the account is authentic.Leaked testimony from classified levels of secrecy in the U.S. government the Philadelphia Experiment was real, that the soldiers on that ship got disoriented, and they ended up walking into the hull. After the ship “reappeared” their bodies melded into the metal of the hull.

Tesla was once quoted as saying… “The present is theirs, but the future for which I have really worked is mine.”

Those who knew him say he was not a normal human, but a superman, either a reincarnated master – or even an ET with superior mental powers placed here to assist in Earth’s technological development!

Nikola Tesla could have gone down in history as the man who invented the 20th century. Instead his theories were ridiculed and he died alone in a hotel bedroom.

Was Nikola Tesla simply a genius with knowledge way ahead of his time? Or is there something more to this “mad scientist” Is it possible that Tesla had contact with extraterrestrial beings, who influenced his life and work? Providing him with knowledge, ideas and creativity?

We will probably never know…

World Health Organization Declares Bacon as Dangerous as Arsenic and Asbestos!


  • Fresh red meat is also due to join WHO ‘encyclopaedia of carcinogens’ 
  • Rulings will send shock waves through farming and fast food industries 
  • Could lead to new dietary guidelines and warning labels on bacon packs
  • Mounting concern that meat fuels disease that kills 150,000 a year in UK

Bacon, burgers and sausages are as big a cancer threat as cigarettes, global health chiefs are to rule.

The World Health Organisation is to list processed meat among the most cancer-causing substances, alongside arsenic and asbestos.

Fresh red meat is also due to join the ‘encyclopaedia of carcinogens’ and is likely to be ranked as only slightly less dangerous than the preserved products.

The World Health Organisation is to list processed meat among the most cancer-causing substances, alongside arsenic and asbestos

The rulings, revealed to the Mail by a well-placed source, will send shock waves through the farming industry and the fast food sector.

They could also lead to new dietary guidelines and warning labels on packs of bacon.

The classifications, by the WHO’s International Agency for Research on Cancer, come amid mounting concern that meat fuels the disease which claims more than 150,000 lives a year in the UK.cer, Britain’s second biggest cancer killer, are particularly strong, with estimations that half of cases could be prevented by healthier lifestyles.

The Department of Health’s scientific advisers recently concluded that red and processed meat ‘probably’ increase the odds of bowel cancer.

But the WHO is expected to go further by saying processed meat causes cancer.

The decision, due on Monday, follows a meeting of scientists from ten nations, including the UK, who reviewed all available evidence.

Smoking: Scientists are believed to have agreed processed meat is ‘carcinogenic to humans’, the highest of five possible rankings, shared with alcohol, asbestos, arsenic and cigarettes

They are believed to have agreed processed meat is ‘carcinogenic to humans’, the highest of five possible rankings, shared with alcohol, asbestos, arsenic and cigarettes.

Risks and benefits must be considered together before telling people what to eat, drink, drive, breathe, or where to work
Barry Carpenter, president of the North American Meat Institute

Processed meat is made by smoking, curing, salting, or adding chemicals.

Examples are ham, bacon, pastrami and salami, as well as hot dogs and some sausages. Burgers are also expected to be included.

Red meat is expected to be one rung below, ‘probably carcinogenic to humans’.

Meat in general contains high concentrations of fat and it is thought the compound that gives meat its red colour may damage the bowel lining.

Processed meat has previously been blamed for one in 30 deaths and is seen as dangerous because preserving techniques can raise levels of cancer-causing chemicals.

It is estimated that if intake was cut to 20g a day – a rasher of bacon a day or an English breakfast once a week – almost 20,000 early deaths would be prevented in the UK each year.

Any advice to cut, or avoid, processed meat will be welcomed by cancer charities.

But it could have huge repercussions for the meat industry, which will be mindful that sugar sales fell last year after the WHO issued a warning on overconsumption.

The beef sector makes £2.8billion for the economy and provides 440,000 jobs in England.

The North American Meat Institute (NAMI) said the report defied ‘both common sense and dozens of studies showing no correlation between meat and cancer’.

‘Red and processed meat are among 940 substances reviewed by International Agency for Research (IARC) on found to pose some level of theoretical ‘hazard”,’ said Barry Carpenter, president of NAMI.

‘IARC says you can enjoy your yoga class, but don’t breathe air (Class I carcinogen), sit near a sun-filled window (Class I), drink wine or coffee (Class I and Class 2A,), eat grilled food (Class 2A), or apply aloe vera (Class 2B).

‘Risks and benefits must be considered together before telling people what to eat, drink, drive, breathe, or where to work.’

The industry says red meat is rich in protein, a good source of vitamins, iron and zinc, and a key part of a balanced diet.

Professor Richard Knox, a former Institute of Cancer Research expert, said ‘most cancer deaths will not be due to bowel cancer and even fewer linked to meat consumption’.

Government guidelines on red meat, given in 2011, recommend adults eat no more than 70g a day.

The World Cancer Research Fund recommends avoiding processed meat altogether.

Charli Howard, Size 2 UK Model Considered “Too Curvacious” For The Industy!


On the one hand, you’ve got Gigi Hadid, Ashley Graham, and countless other models and influencers celebrating their curves. The fashion world has shown them plenty of love for their own social media posts, which shed light on the issues they’ve dealt with due to industry standards.

But 23-year-old British model Charli Howard just reminded us that we’ve got a long way to go when it comes to body acceptance. The experienced model, who is a UK size 6 or US size 2, posted a lengthy message on Facebook that calls out her agency for pressuring her to stay thin.

Charli pulls out all the stops, mentioning the dangerous direction young women can take when they “fight nature” to fit into samples. But she also concludes her note by admitting she’s begun to “love her shape,” writing, “Ironically, I do love modeling — the people I’ve met, the places I’ve visited and I am proud of the jobs I’ve done. I will continue to do it, but only on my terms.”

Read on to see Charli’s powerful message in full, and find a few reasons why we want to see her continue working it in major editorials, starting with the fact that she’s just about the fiercest model we’ve ever seen (and heard!).
