|Metal Coating Techniques Used 2000 Years Ago Outshine Modern Methods

Ancient technology used by craftsmen 2000 years ago to apply thin films of metal onto their statues surpassed modern standards for producing DVDs, solar cells, and electronic devices.
It makes you wonder, how did they do it?
A report on the discovery in the July 2013 issue of Accounts of Chemical Research affirmed:
“[…] the high level of competence reached by the artists and craftsmen of these ancient periods who produced objects of an artistic quality that could not be bettered in ancient times and has not yet been reached in modern ones.”

Scientist finally discover why eating red meat causes cancer.
A new study out of the University of California, San Diego has discovered the culprit behind why eating red meat leads to higher instances of cancer -and it all has to do with a sugar.
Humans are the only animals that have a higher risk of cancer when it comes to eating red meat, as other carnivores eat red meat naturally with no ill side effects.
The study, which was published December 29 in the “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences,” discovered that a unique sugar named Neu5Gc, found in most mammals but not in humans, triggers an immune response that in turn causes inflammation.

In 1956, a major cooking oil company published a series of magazine advertisements claiming that “fried foods become light foods” when vegetable oil is used in place of butter or lard.
The clear message to health-savvy homemakers was that vegetable oil was a low-calorie solution to the more traditional fats they were cooking with.
Millions of well-meaning cooks took the bait and made the switch, thinking their families would be better off as a result.
Fast-forward 60 years and this cooking oil marketing blitz was evidently an industry success. Vegetable oils continue to remain the go-to fat used in fried and processed foods.

I have for the last year pointed out the corporate facade that looks like government. Perhaps the latest vote within the UN will make my point clear.
The United Nations Security Council voted 15-0 to put restrictions on North Korea. China and Russia voted along corporate lines since Kim Jong-un has become a rebel against the international system.
China is a major player of the structure and Kim Jong-un has ignored big brother’s requests. North Korea will now pay the price of $1 billion, denting their exports to China by a third.
China will not let North Korea come between their deals with Apple and Nike and all the other globalization it is making money from.
