So...some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They're lining up for it. They're having parties to get it done. It if isn't available to them, they're totally bummed out.

I'm not even going to venture into the religious aspect of having a microchip inserted into a human being. Let's just talk about the secular ramifications. Certain folks won't be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here's how this could go. Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own "convenience" leading the way. Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped - sort of like it's nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days. Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law. Read on, because I could not make this stuff up.

The winter arrived and with it the citrus fruits: oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, lemons... to give us happiness with their colors, to fill the air with their perfumes, and as well to defend ourselves against the seasonal illnesses.

If up until now you peel them and throw away the peel, you have to know that this part that you thought useless can be reused in different ways that you never imagined. Here we have 10 ideas to reuse, to create, to experiment and above all, to recycle the citrus peel!

Anne Marie Schubert is a long-time prosecutor for Sacramento. She's seen all the dirt that the bottoms of society has to offer. She's put many of them away for good.

Schubert, 53, took her son to see the family doctor in 2016. Her day was hectic as we'd expect the day of a District Attorney's to be. Her son, who she refuses to name out of privacy concerns, was having back pains. But when they arrived at the appointment, the doctor allegedly switched the focal point over to vaccines. The doctor noted that Schubert's son was overdue for the HPV vaccine.

Wild bison grazing on sunflower-studded prairie at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge are in business - as greeters of millions of travelers.

Federal wildlife refuge managers also this summer doubled the fenced space at the refuge, north of Denver, for their bison herd, which grew this year, with 18 calves, to a record 122. The feds plan to import 25 more genetically robust bison in October. And wild bison behavior, such as raging bulls battling for females and tearing through fences, is on the rise.

It was, at least in the beginning, the total incarnation of the Paradise for most of the despaired people in germany. Of course, you had to be a part of the white, ethnic-German majority proactively following the upcoming Nazi-pseudo-religion.

After the (lost) war, life continued to get worse for average people from year to year, people who witnessed at the same time the fantastic financial gains of a very small upper class, driven by available cheap labor and the mathematics of capitalism. This effect of a deep split within the society and it's interpretation was important for later, the "guilt" had been transferred entirely and exclusively to the German-Jewish upper class and eventually to any people of Jewish descent in Germany. This happened openly even through newspapers from 1933 on. Most notorious and prevalent was the infamous "Der Stürmer" publication.

The 2017 solar eclipse is approaching - but what if you don't have eclipse glasses? No worries, you can appreciate this solar phenomenon using some simple projection devices you can make at home.

Projection devices work by focusing the sun's light onto another surface so that you can safely view the sun indirectly. During a partial solar eclipse, projections of the sun's rays will appear in a crescent shape that changes with the position of the moon! Pinhole projectors are very cool, very old devices that date back thousands of years.

Crazy but true - our family really has tested and reviewed over 80 mineral sunscreens, and we know the best natural sunscreens that really work! In this comprehensive sunscreen review, we share which ones stay on in the water or when you sweat...

Which brands make you look white like a ghost and which go on smoothly, what got us burned and what natural ingredients are REALLY the best (and the brands that are tricking you with their marketing). We've learned a lot about sun safety and sunscreen efficacy, and I continue to do research on things like Vitamin D. We started in 2010 with 28 of the 40 natural sunscreens that the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rated as "safe" at the time. (They now rank hundreds that way; exciting to see more and more brands getting on board!)

Helicopter parents think that they're doing what's best for their kids but actually, they're hurting their kids' chances at success. In particular, they're ruining their kids' chances of landing a job and keeping it.

Helicopter parents don't want their kids to get hurt. They want to soften every blow and cushion every fall. The problem is that these over-protected kids never learn how to deal with loss, failure or disappointment -- inevitable aspects of everyone's life. Over-protection makes it nearly impossible for these young people to develop frustration tolerance. Without this important psychological attribute, young people enter the workforce at a great disadvantage.

It's never been done before. The first-of-its-kind study of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated American homeschooled children shows who is really ailing... and parents should be worried.

Something is wrong with America's children. They are sick - allergic, asthmatic, anxious, autoimmune, autistic, hyperactive, distracted and learning disabled. Thirty-two million American children - a full 43% of them - suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity. Across the board, once rare pediatric disorders from autism and ADD to Type 1 diabetes and Tourette's syndrome are soaring, though few studies pool the data. Compared to their parents, children today are four times more likely to have a chronic illness.

In Egyptian mythology, Osiris was killed on the 17th day of Athyr, the third month of the ancient calendar. (Note that this is October 3rd in our modern calendar)

3/17 is also the date of a Masonically-created holiday, St. Patrick's Day. The story has it that the holiday was established by high level Freemason, George Washington, allegedly to reward Irish soldiers in the Continental Army. But "St. Paddy's" has traditionally been a very minor Saint's day in Ireland. Considering that the day has become America's defacto Bacchanal (which takes us back to Osiris) it's worth noting some of the parallels of this day with Solar mythology.
