[quote] The great danger with the "Internet of Things" (or IoT) is the opportunity for surveillance--for an individual hacker or a state actor to accumulate, store, and exploit very private information against individuals or companies.
These attacks are far from hypothetical: We've read about the ability for an attacker to see and speak to a baby through a babycam or hack and control a car. Attackers stole 40 million credit card numbers after they hacked into a national retailer's HVAC system and used it to reach their computer system and their customers.
Tor has developed a way to build a buffer of privacy between the baby and the Internet--so that the baby (or the HVAC system) is never exposed to the open Internet at all. Instead of a hackable, single point of failure, attackers must contend with the global network of thousands of Tor nodes.

[quote] What herbal medicine is

Herbal medicine uses plants, or mixtures of plant extracts, to treat illness and promote health. It aims to restore your body's ability to protect, regulate and heal itself. It is a whole body approach, so looks at your physical, mental and emotional well being. It is sometimes called phytomedicine, phytotherapy or botanical medicine.

The two most common types of herbal medicine used in the UK are Western herbal medicine and Chinese herbal medicine. Some herbalists practice less common types of herbal medicine such as Tibetan or Ayurvedic medicine (Indian). [/quote]

[quote] Western medicine has been rejecting Chinese Herbal Medicine for decades. It is not simply because it is foreign, or even unsubstantiated. It is not as if there isn’t any scientific and clinical research being done on traditional Chinese herbs. The reality is that western pharmaceutical medicine has been reluctant to embrace treatments that come without patents. Yes, unfortunately, it appears that money is the matter.

Western doctors are not necessarily to blame. Most are focused upon caring for their patients. But the tools they receive from those that control the flow of medicines to prescribe are watching the dollars. And herbal therapies simply don’t have the same potential for profits. [/quote]
Multiple studies and large scale reviews of studies proves with hundreds of thousands of cancer patients that Chinese herbal medicine offers significant treatment for many cancers. Why isn't western medicine embracing Traditional Chinese Medicine for cancer treatment?

How to unify commons based projects into a self-organised solidarity economy:

This report, written by Christian Siefkes, Johannes Euler and Gunter Kramp, showcases an idea for unifying commons-based projects in a self-organised solidarity economy that’s easy and convenient to join. This full report addresses the following questions:

- How is it possible to create connections between commons-based projects that facilitate horizontal and vertical cooperation between them and that encourage the formation of more and more such projects?
- Which kinds of structures allow people to organise most or all aspects of life according to commons principles, while keeping the barriers to entry low? (Some intentional communities succeed at the first task, but their barriers to entry are high.)
- How can such projects be made attractive enough that more and more people want to get involved and so that more and more of their needs can be satisfied in this way?

[quote] Well, you’ve no doubt heard of the need to maintain the correct pH level for a swimming pool? (pH goes on a scale from zero to fourteen. Seven is neutral. Anything below seven is acidic and anything above seven is alkaline).

The human body also has a pH level. And it must be maintained above the neutral level (7.35-7.45 to be exact) at all times for optimum health. But here's the most amazing part. By keeping your pH above 7, the body then acts as a "cancer treatment" for itself and goes to work to break down and dispose of any cancerous tumors!

Yes, I agree. I've heard and read of the need to focus on alkaline foods,
and how many of the most troublesome types are acidic, like animal sources.

[quote] Please Note! If you use an Internet search engine to research any of these alternative cancer treatments, you will find many websites that describe why these treatments are bogus and may actually kill you. Please don’t be discouraged by this negative propaganda. It is the pharmaceutical industry and the American Medical Association that is behind the creation of almost all of these websites.

In my opinion, when you find a certain therapy being criticized as being unproven quackery, then that is a pretty good sign that the alternative therapy is effective and safe. Big pharma would not waste their time preparing reports designed to warn people against using an alternative therapy unless that therapy is effective and has the potential for being a threat to their monopoly. [/quote]
The conventional cancer treatment system and the pharmaceutical companies that control it are dedicated to limiting the development of all other forms of cancer treatment. They have a chokehold on the development of alternative treatments, and they ruthlessly work together with the US FDA and various US government cancer research funding agencies to prevent new treatments from being approved for use by physicians. The reason is that most alternat...
