    UN Human Rights High Commissioner Al Hussein said: “Our attempts at investigating the severe human rights violations in South Eastern Turkey are constantly rejected.” 35th Human Rights session of the United Nations Human Rights Council started in Geneva. UN Human Rights High Commissioner Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein’s speech at the opening started with the Israel-Palestine issue and demanded an end to the pain both sides have endured. Al Hussein also stated that extrajudicial executions are widespread in many countries throughout the world still and people suffer inhumane treatment. “OUR EFFORTS ON TURKEY'S SOUTH EAST ARE HINDERED” Al Hussein said the...

    <p>Flaws in nuts that hold up lights throughout the Big Digs tunnels may be the result of workers overtightening the fasteners when they were first installed, a top highway official said Thursday.</p> <p>Highway officials revealed this week that an inspector had discovered a cracked nut on a light fixture in the Ted Williams Tunnel in September. After further inspection of the Williams Tunnel and the Interstate 90 Connector and Interstate 93 tunnels, officials said they believe hundreds of fasteners throughout the Big Dig tunnels are flawed and must be replaced.</p>
  • Abortion industry rejects oversight (what do they have to hide?)

    It should be a national scandal that the abortion industry fights viciously against any kind of medical standard of care to protect women, even when those efforts mirror its own internal recommendations. The industry simply rejects accountability. Recently, a federal appeals court upheld a Texas law requiring abortionists to have hospital admitting privileges near their practices. Planned Parenthood, the nations largest abortion provider, admits that women may suffer complications after abortions, including blood clots, hemorrhage, incomplete abortions, infection and organ injuries. It further concedes that in Texas, at least 210 women a year must be hospitalized after abortions. Given these...

    Steven Jalbert’s a mechanic at A.J.’s Sunoco in Barre, Vermont. Last year he put an inspection sticker on Donald Ibey’s 1992 Chevy Corsica. Two months later the car was involved in a crash that killed Ibey’s wife Elizabeth. As a result Jalbert’s been brought up on charges of manslaughter and reckless endangerment and could face up to 16 years in prison.It’s a messy story of the law versus common sense versus the pros and cons of lackadaisical code enforcement and I’m not sure how to feel about it.As The Burlington Free Press reports:   April 2014: 86-year-old Donald Ibey brought...

    The South Carolina Legislative Audit Council has issued a scathing report criticizing the state health department for numerous deficiencies in its inspection of the states three freestanding abortion facilities that could result in serious problems for patients if the problems are not addressed. The three free-standing abortion facilities operating in South Carolina are: The Womens Clinic of Greenville, Planned Parenthood of Columbia, and the Charleston Womens Medical Center in Charleston. Discrepancies were noted in the number of abortions performed at one facility and the number reported to the Department of Health and Environmental Controls Public Health Statistics and Information Services....
  • NY abortion clinics inspected less than pizzerias: radio ads

    Abortion clinics should be inspected at least as frequently as pizzerias, tanning salons and movie theaters, according to new radio ads decrying the sanitary conditions at some of New Yorks facilities. The 30-second and 60-second spots paid for by the pro-life Chiaroscuro Group quote what the organization claims are scathing reviews culled from social-media Web sites and penned by horrified patients who visited some of the clinics. A sample of the reviews: Avoid at all costs; The Waiting Room is dirty and smelled of dried urine; DO NOT EVER GO HERE; Filthy Medical Equipment looks like its from the 1970s;...

    LATHRUP VILLAGE According to the Michigan Attorney Generals Office, the state has suspended the license of a local clinic where abortions are performed after authorities discovered several health code violations. On Nov. 21, Womens Center of Southfield, located at 28505 Southfield Road in Lathrup Village, had its surgical outpatient facility license suspended for violating seven health codes, according to state officials. According to a document sent to the facility by the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the center failed to maintain a sterile facility and inform a patient of risks, consent or complications of a procedure. Workers allegedly...

    GUSTINE, Texas A group of students at an elementary school in Texas were apparently asked to lower their pants for a poop inspection on Monday. School educators told two dozen students they were regularly finding feces on the gym floor. The students were then separated into groups of boys and girls and ordered to pull down their pants so administrators could check if they could find anything.

    An Illinois pro-life group is calling for lawmakers to correct a wrong related to abortion clinics. Though state law requires the health department to inspect abortion mills anytime it deems necessary, Emily Zender of Illinois Right to Life tells OneNewsNow it is "appalling how the Illinois Department of Public Health can look the other way while Illinois' abortion clinics are providing substandard medical care." "We have found that on average, 40 percent of the clinics in Illinois have gone between 14 and 17 years without a health inspection," she reports. "And abortion clinics in Illinois are only being inspected an...
  • EMS Worker Tells Mom Were Agents of the State During Home Inspection

    After a concerned mother called 911 fearing her son was choking, an EMS worker proceeded to conduct an inspection of her house on the premise that she homeschooled, telling the woman were agents of the state. The moment your child is complaining that his stomach hurts, then points to his chest instead, and his face is turning red and hes coughing, so you call 911. Except, when EMS gets there they laugh at you and tell you if its asthma he wont be complaining about abdominal pain (except hes NOT because hes POINTING TO HIS CHEST!!!) Then the other asks,...

    Clearly, any family may be visited by federally paid agents for almost any reason. According to an Obamacare provision millions of Americans will be targeted. The Health and Human Services website states that your family will be targeted if you fall under the high-risk categories below: Families where mom is not yet 21. Families where someone is a tobacco user. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside...

    This is just the latest revelation in the stealth inflation and food fraud theme I have written about frequently in recent months. The non-profit group Oceana took samples of 1,215 fish sold in the U.S. and genetic tests found that that 59% of those labeled tuna were mislabeled. It seems that white tuna should be avoided in particular as 84% of fish samples labeled 'white tuna' were actually escolar, a fish that can cause prolonged, uncontrollable, oily anal leakage. Oh and if you live in my hometown of New York City, you should pay particular attention: Big Apple has big...

    LA County Finds Health Code Violations in Skid Row LOS ANGELES (AP) The city of Los Angeles is violating the county health code for hazardous conditions on Skid Row, including nearly 90 rats' nests, a dozen hypodermic needles and piles of human excrement and trash on sidewalks, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has found. The notice of violation stems from an extensive Health Department inspection last month of the 10-block area of downtown Los Angeles that houses the nation's densest population of homeless people, most of them mentally ill and substance abusers. Health officials ordered the...

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - U.N. experts will inspect Iran's newly disclosed uranium enrichment plant on Oct. 25, the IAEA nuclear agency chief said on Sunday, praising a shift "from conspiracy to cooperation" between Tehran and the West. The underground nuclear fuel facility near the holy Shi'ite city of Qom had been kept secret until Iran disclosed its existence last month, setting off an international furore. Iran agreed with six world powers -- the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany -- in Geneva on Thursday to allow IAEA inspectors unfettered access to the site. "IAEA inspectors will visit Iran's new...

    HONG KONG, April 29 (Reuters) - Alarmed by the spread of a new swine flu virus, airports around the world have rushed to install temperature scanners to pick out the sick, but the microbe is proving too clever for modern technology. Experts say an infected person can easily pass through these heat sensors without detection as the incubation period for influenza ranges anywhere between one and three days. "The scanners won't pick up everyone (with flu), especially if they are too early in the infection ... People who have been infected very, very recently wouldn't show up on the scanner,"...

It was not known whether Kim arranged his visit to North Hamgyong Province with regard to the preparations. A Seoul spokesman said Kim makes a nationwide tour at the beginning of every year. North Korea said on Tuesday that it will set off a "communications satellite" from its...

    In a top secret operation, the U.S. Defense Dept. is conducting the first deep space inspection of a crippled U.S. military spacecraft. To do this, it is using sensors on two covert inspection satellites that have been prowling geosynchronous orbit for nearly three years. The failed satellite being examined is the $400 million U.S. Air Force/Northrop Grumman Defense Support Program DSP 23 missile warning satellite. It died in 2008 after being launched successfully from Cape Canaveral in November 2007 on the first operational Delta 4-Heavy booster.

The new policy will result in fewer inspections at plants with lower risks and better records for handling meat and poultry. ``We're just putting resources where the risk is greatest, and those plants that demonstrate excellent control will get...
