THESE remarkable pictures lift the lid on long-abandoned German tunnels that lead to a secret Nazi weapons testing bunker. After hunting through miles of underground passageways, Warren Tepper, from Hampshire, was shocked by his discovery after climbing through a hole in one of the reinforced concrete walls. It is claimed the area was a World War Two shelter for Nazis during the bombing from Allied forces and also a bombardment system, where ammunition was tested on steel plates. Inside Warren and co-explorer Matt, found four-inch-thick bullet holes in metal along with similar holes in bulletproof glass, believed to have been from when Americans raided the site. The bunker and surrounding tunnels, that lie beneath Duisburg, Germany, could also have been visited by Adolf Hitler and used as a spot for secret meetings. Warren said: “At first we didn’t really see much it was just a set of empty tunnels." Warren said: "But then we climbed through a hole in the wall into another … [Read more...] about Inside Adolf Hitler’s secret underground tunnels where Nazis tested new weapons in the final days of World War 2

POLITICS 09/08/2018 08:00 am ET But that doesn't mean the United States would get the same results. By Jonathan Cohn TAIPEI, Taiwan ― Yun Yen is one of Taiwan’s leading oncologists and, until last year, was president of its most prestigious private medical school. But Yen knows plenty about American health care, too. He trained at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, did a fellowship at Yale and then spent more than 20 years on the staff at City of Hope, the internationally recognized cancer hospital in Southern California. While in the United States, Yen developed a deep respect for its history of medical innovation and how it benefits the rest of the world. One of his goals in coming back to Taiwan was to help build a research infrastructure that could produce similar breakthroughs. “Most of the new cancer drugs come from the states,” he said as we talked in his office this summer. “The beauty of the U.S. is its high, … [Read more...] about If You Don’t Believe Single Payer Can Work, See How They Do It In Taiwan

How would you know? The last time your doctor took a blood panel, did he or she review the levels of dioxins found? Humans who fail to filter pesticides out of their daily intake suffer dire health consequences that most allopathic (medical) doctors have no clue how to address, because they know nothing about nutrition, good or bad. In Brazil, the Health Ministry reports that 4,000 pesticide poisoning cases were documented last year alone, and that figure is said to be highly under-representing the real number of cases. And who or what is to blame for this … [Read more...] about Where in the world are your sugar, coffee and soybeans coming from? Hopefully not pesticide-saturated Brazil
Asked once if his long-running public affairs show “Firing Line” and his National Review magazine were prosperous ventures, William F. Buckley Jr. replied, “You don’t expect the Catholic Church to turn a profit, do you?” Now, the Catholic Church is not hurting for operating funds, and it might seem silly to imply otherwise. Buckley’s point was that some endeavors are undertaken for the public good, because you simply think they are the right thing to do. Buckley came from a moneyed family and profited from his books, speaking engagements and syndicated columns. But his TV show was a labor of love. In the service of standing up for conservative thought, Buckley began “Firing Line” in 1966 to stage thoughtful confrontations between left and right. He forged a respectable face for conservatism at a moment when the Republican Party still included a healthy liberal wing, and extremists like the John Birch Society dominated the right’s … [Read more...] about Is America Ready for Kinder, Gentler Political TV?
If scientists engineered the polar opposite of Donald Trump, a bizarro-world version of the rage-tweeting, fancy-living, drama-stirring mogul-turned-president, their lab might produce Gwen Graham. The former stay-at-home mom who hopes to become Florida’s first woman governor is almost everything Trump is not. She is a serial hugger, a frequent crier, a penny-pincher who buys her clothing at Target, an animal lover who posts pictures of her dogs and bunny on Facebook. The only organization she’s ever run was the PTA at her children’s school; the only time she’s spent in the public eye was as a one-term Democratic congresswoman. She’s a self-described nerd who hooks her granny-style glasses around her belt loop, an earnest consensus-builder who works so hard to find common ground that her ex-husband is her campaign treasurer. She listens. She empathizes. She exercises. She worries about her PolitiFact ratings. She’s so eager to learn that I watched her … [Read more...] about Do Democrats Want an Anti-Trump, or Their Own Trump?
