EIA predicts lean oil decades for Alaska

The Energy Information Administration released its Annual Energy Outlook today. It shows oil production from Alaska dwindling to less than half its current level after 2030.“Unless more oil is found in Alaska or along the pipeline right of way, it’s very possible that the Alaska pipeline itself … would end up shutting down,” says EIA Administrator Adam Sieminski. The EIA is a federal agency that was established to be a source of unbiased data, independent of policymakers.

As for prices, Sieminski wasn’t very specific, even over the short-term.

“If you use the current options prices, over the next year or so, what that says is oil prices could be anywhere between about $25 a barrel and $80 a barrel,” he said, summarizing data from the oil options market.

In the IEA’s baseline forecast, oil would fetch $100 a barrel by the late 2020s. But don’t bank on it: Sieminski warns that volatility is too high to forecast with much certainty what the price in a given year. [Full Source]
What all this means is that local community leaders must immediately start looking for alternative revenue sources for their budgets because Alaska will not be able to throw money at communities like it has in the future.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is in your gut, not your head

Physicians have been mystified by chronic fatigue syndrome, a condition where normal exertion leads to debilitating fatigue that isn't alleviated by rest. There are no known triggers, and diagnosis requires lengthy tests administered by an expert.

Now, for the first time, Cornell University researchers report they have identified biological markers of the disease in gut bacteria and inflammatory microbial agents in the blood.

"Our work demonstrates that the gut bacterial microbiome in chronic fatigue syndrome patients isn't normal, perhaps leading to gastrointestinal and inflammatory symptoms in victims of the disease," said Maureen Hanson, the Liberty Hyde Bailey Professor in the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Cornell and the paper's senior author. "Furthermore, our detection of a biological abnormality provides further evidence against the ridiculous concept that the disease is psychological in origin."

At the same time, the researchers discovered specific markers of inflammation in the blood, likely due to a leaky gut from intestinal problems that allow bacteria to enter the blood, Giloteaux said.

Bacteria in the blood will trigger an immune response, which could worsen symptoms. [Full Source]

European SUPERSTATE to be unveiled: EU nations 'to be morphed into one' post-Brexit

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.

Controversially member states would also lose what few controls they have left over their own borders, including the procedure for admitting and relocating refugees.

Some figures have cautioned against trying to force through further political integration, warning that to do so against the wishes of the European people will only fuel further Eurosceptic feeling [Full Source]
Britain did the right thing by exiting the European Union. However, what's amazing to me is the fact that none of the leaders of the #Brexit campaign mentioned this plot during the run up to the vote. These type of proposals don't 'just happen' they are planned sometimes years in advance. So the British politicians knew that this was being thrown around but they not once mentioned it to the voters....I wonder why?

Concealed Carrier Prevents Mass Shooting At SC Nightclub

A man with a concealed carry license stopped a shooter after the latter opened fire on a crowd of people at a nightclub in South Carolina early Sunday morning, according to WISTV.com.

After getting into a fight with another person, the 32-year-old suspect pulled out a gun and began to fire at a crowd of people gathered outside of the club, hitting and injuring four, WISTV reports. One of the victims, who holds a concealed-carry permit, shot back in self-defense, hitting the suspect in the leg.[Full Source]
But but but but but but..........nobody should have guns......reeeeeeeeeeeeee reeeeeeee!

How Zootopia was supposed to be made

Historical Anecdote: A profoundly unlucky paratrooper gets treated for shrapnel in his buttocks, is attacked by chocolate, has no idea whats going on.

Meanwhile, Japanese mortars pounded the plateau. A corporal was hit in the buttocks by numerous shell fragments and was carried to a makeshift open-air aid station in Manarawat. A battalion surgeon administered an anesthetic and began stitching up the gash while the trooper lay with his arms outstretched.
Minutes later, three L-5s swooped in and dropped food. One parachute container, bearing a large box of chocolate, landed on the unconscious corporal’s outstretched right arm, breaking it neatly near the elbow. Without missing a beat, the surgeon finished sewing up the man’s buttocks wound and then splinted his arm.
Later, when the corporal awoke in a haze, the surgeon was gone. Two stretcher bearers came in and haled the paratrooper away, all the while thinking that the man had “gone psycho.”
He kept demanding to know: “Why am I wearing an arm brace for a piece of iron in my ass?”
