VSF: This is from DARPA’s own website. I came across this nightmare in a book I’m reading on DARPA, The Pentagon’s Brain, which states that out of the 2.5 million Americans that served in Iraq & Afghanistan wars — more than 300,000 of them returned home with TBI traumatic brain injuries, “brain-wounded warriors.” The idea that 300,000 + men are suffering and available as lab-rats for DARPA is haunting me. They are experimenting implanting chips in their brains: DBS Deep Brain Stimulation. Sick. DARPA declined the book’s author when she asked to interview the injured.

Restoring Active Memory (RAM)
Dr. Tristan McClure-Begley
The Restoring Active Memory (RAM) program aims to mitigate the effects of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in military Service members by developing neurotechnologies to facilitate memory formation and recall in the injured brain. More than 270,000 Service members have been diagnosed with TBI since 20001. The condition frequently results in an impaired ability to retrieve memories formed prior to injury and a reduced capacity to form or retain new memories following injury. Despite the scale of the problem, few effective therapies currently exist to mitigate the long-term consequences of TBI on memory. Enabling restoration of memory function would support military readiness by providing injured personnel the option of returning to duty, and would improve quality of life for wounded veterans.
DARPA’s end goal for the RAM program is to develop and test a wireless, fully implantable neural interface for human clinical use. To achieve that goal, the program blends fundamental research and technology development. Performer teams are building multi-scale computational models with high spatial and temporal resolution that describe how neurons code declarative memories—the well-defined parcels of knowledge that can be consciously recalled and described in words, such as events, times, and places. Teams are also exploring new methods for analyzing and decoding neural signals to understand how targeted stimulation might be applied to help restore function to the injured brain.
Building on this foundational work, researchers are integrating the computational models into new, implantable, closed-loop systems able to deliver targeted neural stimulation to restore normal memory function. Volunteers living with deficits in the encoding and/or retrieval of declarative memories and/or volunteers undergoing neurosurgery for other neurological conditions are taking part in human clinical studies to help test and refine the RAM systems. RAM also supports animal studies to advance the state-of-the-art of quantitative models that account for the encoding and retrieval of complex memories and memory attributes, including their hierarchical associations with one another. This work aims to identify any characteristic neural and behavioral correlates of memories facilitated by therapeutic devices.
The RAM program is informed by independent Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) experts to help DARPA proactively identify potential issues related to memory and neurotechnology. Communications with ELSI experts supplement the standard oversight provided by institutional review boards that govern human clinical studies and animal use.
Russian Oil engineer, P.M. Borisov’s Proposed Method of Melting the Arctic Icecap
Borisov’s idea: If the Arctic ice is once melted, much less of the sun’s radiation will be reflected out into space and therefore the Arctic ice cap will not re-form. An ice-free Arctic Ocean would be a great boon to oceanic shipping, especially between Europe and East Asia. Much land in northern Canada and Siberia would be freed of permafrost and made suitable for agriculture. Borisov believed that an ice-free Arctic Ocean would lead to increased evaporation of water and hence increased rainfall worldwide, including the region of Sahara Desert leading to grass growing there. Borisov considers all of the impacts of the melting of the Arctic ice cap to be beneficial. He asserts that the melting of the Greenland ice cap would raise sea levels at a rate of only 1.5 to 2 mm per year.
This scheme was taken seriously by Soviet climatologists. Two conferences were held in Leningrad in the early 1960′s following an initial meeting in Moscow by the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences in 1959. Borisov’s suggestions to warm the arctic included:
• Covering great areas of the Arctic with black powders such as coal dust (G. Veksler, 1959) (Carbon Black?)
• Dispersing the cloud cover over the central Arctic Basin (D. Fletcher, 1958) (Geoengineering Aerosols?)
• Deepening of the Thomson Sill (V.N. Stepanov, 1963)
• Covering the water surface with a monomolecular film (M. Budyko, 1962)
• Installations to direct warmer Atlantic water into the Kara Sea (V.P. P’yankov, 1965)
• Pumping cold Arctic water into the Pacific to draw warm Atlantic water into the Arctic Basin (P.M. Borisov, c. 1968)
This concept also required construction of a dam across the Bering Strait. Source: P.M. Borisov, “Can we Control the Arctic Climate?”, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, March, 1969, pp. 43-48.
5G Cell Phone Radiation: How the Telecom Companies Are Losing the Battle to Impose 5G Against the Will of the People – Global ResearchGlobal Research – Centre for Research on Globalization
The telecommunications companies and the mainstream media would have you believe that the race to roll out 5G is unstoppable. That you are nothing and no one in the face of a lethal multi-trillion-dollar agenda imposed by some of the most powerful entities on the planet.
They thought that if they called their new, alleged “communications technology”, adapted from the military Active Denial Technology, “5G” or fifth generation, the public would just assume that it was more of the same as 4G, 3G or 2G. And if they could characterise the rollout as a race, the public would not have enough time to find out what a killer technology 5G is. How wrong they were! Not only has the public found out, but now they know how lethal previous generations of wireless technology – to be used concurrently with 5G – are as well.
Below is the evidence from a number of different countries that the pushback is huge and growing. The telcos have lost the propaganda war, despite their control of the mainstream media, from which not a whisper of the dangers of 5G is heard, and of social media and Youtube, who have been desperately deleting millions of accounts to silence the naysayers.
Current List of Companies Planning 5G Satellites
As of today, the following companies are planning to launch, or are already launching, 5G satellites into low orbit around the Earth:
SpaceX, based in the United States, has plans for 42,000 satellites, has already launched 120, intends to launch 60 at a time twice a month during 2020, and is developing a larger rocket that can launch 120 at a time. As soon as 420 satellites are in orbit, it plans to turn them on. That could be as early as February 2020.
OneWeb, based in the United Kingdom, has plans for 5,260 satellites and intends to launch 30 at a time every three to four weeks beginning in January 2020. As soon as 300 satellites are in orbit, in late 2020, it plans to turn them on.
Telesat, based in Canada, has plans for 512 satellites, and intends to begin service in 2021.
Amazon has plans for 3,236 satellites and intends to begin service as soon as 578 are in orbit.
Facebook has plans for thousands of satellites but has not disclosed its plans to the public.
Roscosmos, the Russian Space Agency, has plans for 640 satellites, to be deployed between 2022 and 2026.
Aerospace Science and Industry Corp., a Chinese state-owned company, has plans for 156 satellites, to be in place by 2022.
The above companies will broadcast only 5G and will sell user devices that will be mounted on homes and vehicles and will function as small cells. Another company, Lynk, has plans for “several thousand” satellites that will communicate directly with cell phones and will broadcast not only 5G, but also 2G, 3G and 4G. Lynk intends to begin service in 2023.
In addition to these satellite plans, Loon, a subsidiary of Google, has a contract to provide Internet to remote areas of the Amazon rainforest in Peru from stratospheric balloons.
China Already Has Nationwide 5G and Is Developing 6G
Two countries already have nationwide 5G, China and South Korea. And the insanity continues to escalate: China is already developing 6G. On November 7, CNBC reported that 37 universities, research institutes, and enterprises will be involved in developing 6G technology in China. 6G will use even higher frequencies than 5G, and will send even greater tsunamis of data all over this fragile world. And other countries are rushing to compete as well. The University of Oulu in Finland has a 6G research institute. On September 29, 2019, Rohde and Schwarz demonstrated a prototype system operating at 300 GHz at a workshop in Paris. And in the U.S., the Federal Communications Commission is planning to open up frequencies up to 3 THz (3,000 GHz) for research purposes.
The World Will Finally Have to Confront Its Massive Plastic Problem Now That China Won’t Handle It
… China has had enough. In 2017, China announced it was permanently banning the import of nonindustrial plastic waste. According to a paper published in June 2018 in the journal Science Advances, that will leave the world—mostly high-income countries—with an additional 111 million metric tons of plastic to deal with by 2030. And right now, those countries have no good way to handle it.
As of 2016, the top five countries exporting their plastic to China were the US, the UK, Mexico, Japan, and Germany.
… now the ban is permanent.
The rule went into effect on January 1, 2018, and plastic immediately began piling up in several European countries, the port of Hong Kong, and the US. “My inventory is out of control,” Steve Frank, who owns recycling plants in Oregon, which up until then had exported most of its materials to China, told the New York Times at the time. He hoped he’d be able to start exporting more waste to countries like Indonesia, India, Vietnam, Malaysia—“anywhere we can”—but “they can’t make up the difference,” he said.
At the end of the day, even the 111 million metric tons of plastic that the researchers found would be back in the laps of countries who used to export to China is still a fraction of all the plastic that gets produced.
ARCTIC: Russian Navy 2019: Two new submarines, 23 new surface vessels and 480 new kinds of armament | The Independent Barents Observer
As the year draws towards an end, the President again sits down with the top leaders of his military and military industrial complex.
In Tuesday’s meeting in Sochi, Putin reiterated his key mantra; Russian national security is threatened by the build-up of NATO infrastructure along its borders and Russia must give the highest possible attention to the technical re-equipment of its armed forces and Navy.
According to the President, the Russian naval forces have in 2019 been added a total of 23 new surface vessels, including service and supply ships, two new submarines, three aircrafts, four coastal missile complexes and 400 units of various missile and torpedo weapons.
In addition come 480 different kinds of new kinds of armament and equipment, the Kremlin informs.
The Northern Fleet constitutes a crucial part of the Russian armed forces and Putin made clear that the country’s strategic nuclear forces are now being re-equipped with modern nuclear submarine cruisers of the Borey class equipped with the Bulava ballistic missiles.
The Borey-A class sub «Knyaz Vladimir» will be handed over to the Navy in the course of December and another four submarines of the class are under construction, Putin underlined.
