Turkish sources say killing took 7 minutes for Khashoggi to die, horrendous screams

Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.


The killing took seven minutes, the source said.

As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

“When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.

A three-minute version of the audio tape has been given to Turkish newspaper Sabah, but they have yet to release it.

Hurricane Michael and Red Tide toxins - can be positive or negative

Karelia braves is the red tide organism that effects the nervous system "just like pesticides." Particles going miles inland in the wind.


SARASOTA — Dissipating red tide could get an unwanted stir from Hurricane Michael this week as it passes Southwest Florida, where deadly algae has persisted offshore for a year.

Offshore winds are expected to continue until Michael passes, and then shift toward the shore, potentially spitting sea spray with the airborne red tide organism, Karenia brevis, onshore. These are the same conditions that have brought scores of dead fish onto area beaches in recent months, along with breathing problems for beachgoers.

“We don’t really know exactly what is going to happen,” said Richard Pierce, an ecotoxicologist and senior scientist at Mote Marine Laboratory. “There have been instances where a hurricane dispersed red tide so it didn’t come back. There have been times when it stirred things up and it brought more nutrients to the area and red tide came back worse than it was.”


Interesting video.

OMG!! LDS Church president urges Mormon women (not men) to take a 10 day fast from social media

Could it be because Mormon Women for Ethical Government says it has 6,000 members opposing Judge Kavanaugh?


"... I invite you to participate in a 10-day fast from social media and from any other media that bring negative and impure thoughts to your mind," Nelson said. "Pray to know which influences to remove during your fast. The effect of your 10-day fast may surprise you. What do you notice after taking a break from perspectives of the world that have been wounding your spirit? Is there a change in where you now want to spend your time and energy? Have any of your priorities shifted—even just a little? I urge you to record and follow through with each impression.

US Food Brands Petition EPA to Ban Pre-Harvest Glyphosate Spraying

The Environmental Working Group, joined by food and nutrition companies including MegaFood, Ben & Jerry’s, Stonyfield Farm, MOM’s Organic Market, Nature’s Path, One Degree Organic Foods, National Co+op Grocers and Happy Family Organics, petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday to sharply limit glyphosate residues allowed on oats and prohibit the pesticide’s use as a pre-harvest drying agent.

Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup, is mostly used as a weedkiller on genetically modified corn and soybeans. But it is also increasingly sprayed on oats just before harvest as a drying agent, or desiccant. Glyphosate kills the crop, drying it out so that it can be harvested sooner than if the plant were allowed to die naturally. This allows easier harvesting but also increases the likelihood that the pesticide makes it into foods.

(GROSS -Pre-Harvest glyphosate spraying is also done in Florida on the sugar cane crop for sweeter sugar. Glyphosate also feeds algae and red tides.)

Kavanaugh vandalizing a car while drunk at Yale - one of thousands of tips




One document likely in the stack would be a notarized statement submitted to the FBI Tuesday by a truck owner, who allegedly confronted an inebriated college student who was “smashing the black cargo box” in the bed of his parked Ford Courier on a New Haven, Conn., street in the fall of 1986.

“I yelled again at the person, and realized it was Brett Kavanaugh,” reads the statement, which goes on to allege that the future Supreme Court nominee, “uncontrollably, incoherently drunk,” later refused to pay for the damage when confronted over the incident at meeting of Truth and Courage, the secret society both Yale undergraduates belonged to. Judge Kavanaugh, through his attorney, denies the incident took place.

Anyone else dreaming about this sexual abuse & mean drunk stuff?

I was held down and date raped in the woods on a first date at 20. It's insane for anyone to think you would not know who raped you or who might try to (accidentally) kill you. However, I did fear for my life when my ex husband became psychotic while falling down drunk and had his hands around my neck. My daughter was about 5 yrs old then and kept kicking him till he became distracted and let go. I thought I was going to die. I can really relate to Dr. Ford on this. The next day he totally denied it happened - said he would never do anything like that. I married him because "he was one of the nicest guys I knew". I usually have very boring dreams without much drama, but last night I woke up in the middle of a bad dream - three men coming toward me and I knew I was going to die.

God this stuff brings a lot of shit up.

Collins: My office has gotten 'pretty ugly voicemails, threats' over Kavanaugh

Hello, you, unlike Dr. Ford, are probably still able to sleep in your house, but of course, it's all about you.


“My office has received some pretty ugly voicemails, threats, terrible things said to my staff,” Collins said in an interview with WVOM on Wednesday.


We've had some very abusive callers. ... We've had some very vulgar calls and sort of harassing the staff," Steve Abbot, Collins's chief of staff, told a Maine TV station at the time

Bayer's Monsanto sued by 8,000 plaintiffs on glyphosate

Bayer said the number of U.S. lawsuits brought against newly acquired Monsanto has risen to about 8,000 from 5,200 previously, after Monsanto was ordered to pay damages for not warning of alleged cancer risks of glyphosate-based weedkillers.

“The number of plaintiffs in both state and federal litigation is approximately 8,000 as of end-July. These numbers may rise or fall over time but our view is that the number is not indicative of the merits of the plaintiffs’ cases,” Chief Executive Werner Baumann told analysts in a conference call on Thursday.

Bayer shares have lost more than 10 percent since Monsanto was ordered on Aug. 10 to pay $289 million in damages in the first of possibly thousands of U.S. lawsuits over glyphosate-based weedkillers such as Roundup and Ranger Pro.

Breakfast With a Dose of Roundup? Quaker Oats exceeds limit of 400ppb by having 930ppb



https://www.ewg.org/childrenshealth/glyphosateincereal/#.W3S0KX4nYQ9
Popular oat cereals, oatmeal, granola and snack bars come with a hefty dose of the weed-killing poison in Roundup, according to independent laboratory tests commissioned by EWG.

Glyphosate, an herbicide linked to cancer by California state scientists and the World Health Organization, was found in all but two of 45 samples of products made with conventionally grown oats. Almost three-fourths of those samples had glyphosate levels higher than what EWG scientists consider protective of children’s health with an adequate margin of safety. About one-third of 16 samples made with organically grown oats also had glyphosate, all at levels well below EWG’s health benchmark.



Each year, more than 250 million pounds of glyphosate are sprayed on American crops, primarily on “Roundup-ready” corn and soybeans genetically engineered to withstand the herbicide. But when it comes to the food we eat, the highest glyphosate levels are not found in products made with GMO corn.

Increasingly, glyphosate is also sprayed just before harvest on wheat, barley, oats and beans that are not genetically engineered. Glyphosate kills the crop, drying it out so that it can be harvested sooner than if the plant were allowed to die naturally.
