The world is making a wonderful step forward this latest news. Business people from Russia, China, Japan and South Korea met in September in Tokyo to sign a Memorandum of Understanding that seeks to create the Asia Super Grid. The grid will consist of wind and solar technologies and will distribute clean energy throughout the world.

According to SolarLove.com, the idea is dependent on development of an ultra-high voltage grid operating at more than 1,000 kilovolts AC and 800 kilovolts DC over thousands of kilometers. It envisions interconnecting grids across regions, nations, and even continents with a capacity of over 10 gigawatts.

The Asian Super Grid.

This idea came about as a solution to the devastating Fukushima nuclear fallout in 2011, thanks to Masayoshi Son. Masayoshi is the founder of the Internet business SoftBank Group and he created the Renewable Energy Institute after the Fukushima fallout.

His idea was to tap into the massive amount of available wind and solar possibilities that could come from the Gobi Desert region in China, which is said to be equivalent to thousands of nuclear reactors.

His big vision wasn’t supported by everyone though. “People said it was crazy, too grand a scheme…politically impossible.”

However, soon after announcing his dream and vision, the Korea Electric Power Company and the State Grid Corporation of China contacted him and showed tremendous interest. Shortly after that, the Russians joined with PSJC Rosseti expressing interest to collaborate on the project as well.

The creation of this super grid will help areas like Southern Africa, Europe, East and Southeast Asia, as well as the four major countries involved in the project.

Though there have been political disputes between China and Japan especially, this project is being seen as a means to help usher in a new era of peace and prosperity throughout the Eastern hemisphere of our world.

The project is underway and the group sees more projects like this continuing to pop up everywhere as the projected price efficiency of solar will be better than than fossil fuel energy by 2025, according to the groups calculations.

Earlier this year, the well known Bill Nye was on CNN and said in the interview that we could power the world entirely with renewable energy right now if we really wanted. Obviously, political and financial interests are in the way of the goal currently, but perhaps this new Super Grid will not only be a technological example, but a political example that nations can unite in peace and for the common good of the planet and all it’s inhabitants.

50 Cent Tells His Fans To Vote For Trump

Rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent recently expressed his support for Donald Trump and seemed to indicate that everything is riding on one issue, his tax rate. In a recent Instagram post, 50 Cent, who files his businesses under his government name Curtis Jackson, told his Instagram followers to vote for Donald Trump. Jackson seemed to be upset by Biden’s proposed tax rate for the wealthy. He took a photo of his television showing a proposed 62% tax rate, and said that he doesn’t even care if Trump “doesn’t like black people,” he’s voting for Donald Trump anyway.

“WHAT THE FCK! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, FCK NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f****** mind,” Jackson said in the now-viral post.

As he probably expected, his post sparked outrage among a large portion of his audience and was instantly praised in conservative media.

His posts even caught the attention of the Trump family. Jackson continued to post in support of the President after his original comments made the news. In a later tweet, he posted a video of a Fox News segment where his comments were discussed, and he quoted one of the hosts, saying that he does not want to become “20 Cent.”

Christopher Bouzy, a Black CEO and the founder of Bot Sentinel, was one of the first prominent names to criticize Jackson for his remarks. Bouzy called out Jackson as well as Kanye West and Ice Cube, and accused them of being opportunists.

It appears that Jackson is clearly supporting Donald Trump in the election this year, but he has also been critical of the president in the past, so perhaps he is just voting for what he perceives as the lesser of two evils. Jackson has previously attacked the president on his COVID-19 response, saying “You wanted a reality show host as president. Well, now you’re on Survivor.”

In 2017, during an interview with US radio station Hot 97, Jackson said that he was offered $500,000 to make an appearance as part of Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign. In the same interview, he went on to call Trump’s presidency an “accident.”

“They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance. His presidency is an accident. If you were a President by accident, you might do some of the things Donald Trump is doing… I think he was [campaigning] to build his profile for a bigger deal on television, and everything else,” Jackson said in the interview.

It is also important to note that the initial tax figures posted by Jackson are a bit misleading, as CNBC noted these figures are based on a study that doesn’t include deductions or loopholes that most people take advantage of, and will only be applied to top earners.

Under Biden’s plan, the effective tax rate for the top 1% would increase from 26.8% to 39.8%, according to the Tax Policy Center, which means that top earners in California and New York City would pay effective state and federal tax rates of around 53%, compared with the roughly 40% they pay in effective rates today.

As of 2020, Jackson’s net worth is estimated to be $30 million, which is a huge drop from previous years, when his net worth was declared at $150 million by Forbes.

Someone Called The Cops On A “Homeless Jesus” Statue 20 Minutes After It was Installed

A sculpture of a “homeless Jesus” laying on a park bench was recently installed on the grounds of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Bay Village, Ohio, to make a profound point about how homeless people are treated in our world. Within 20 minutes of the sculpture being installed, a local resident proved the point of the artist by calling the police. 

This art installation is a traveling exhibit, and according to the St. Barnabas church, similar incidents have happened at other churches where the sculpture was installed. 

 “Yes, within just a few minutes of the statue’s arrival, the police were dispatched to investigate a report of a man sleeping on a park bench. This is apparently a common issue with various Homeless Jesus installations around the US and Canada. The caller surely contacted the police out of genuine concern and the responding officer was excellent: he was extremely professional and eager to learn more about the sculpture and its intended message. We have nothing but gratitude and respect for the Bay Village Police Department,” the church said on it’s website.

The exhibit was created by Canadian sculptor Timothy Schmalz, but was later purchased by the Community West Foundation and has been traveling to churches and other religious organizations since October of 2018. It is scheduled to stay at St. Barnabas in Ohio until Dec. 1.

In an email to Cleveland Scene, St. Barnabas Pastor Alex Martin, said, “[The sculpture] reminds us that, even though homelessness is a not a significant problem in our immediate neighborhood, we don’t have to drive far to find those in tremendous need. Perhaps the statue will inspire those who see it to take action and help… Seeing Jesus depicted this way reminds us that Jesus identified with the outcast and marginalized in his own day. He spent much of his time with tax collectors and prostitutes, largely to the chagrin of polite society.”

Bay Village police chief Kathy Leasure said that they were called to check if the “person” on the bench was having a medical issue.

“If this was a person laying on a bench, the officer would have made sure the person was not in any sort of medical distress. If the person was, the officer would have been able to radio for an ambulance to respond and start rendering first aid. Additionally, if this were a homeless person, the officer would have checked to make sure the person was okay and to see if they needed anything. There are hotels in nearby cities that will give homeless individuals a free night stay. The officer could have helped to facilitate this. If the person did not want or need anything, the person would have been permitted to stay where they were,” Leasure said.

As of 2016, over 100 copies of Homeless Jesus were on display worldwide. The first sculpture outside of North America was installed on the grounds of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin. The most prominent location is in Rome outside of the Papal Office of Charities.

New Study Shows Drinking Dairy Milk Could Increase Risk of Breast Cancer

Drinking Dairy Milk

(TMU) — Drinking dairy milk may be a contributing factor in having an increased risk of developing breast cancer, according to a new study conducted by researchers at Loma Linda University Health.

Researchers published the controversial study this week in the Oxford International Journal Of Epidemiology. They looked at the dairy intake of 53,000 American women and found that higher intakes of diary milk were associated with greater risks of developing breast cancer. The average age of participants in the study was 57 years old.

Women are typically diagnosed with breast cancer in their 40s and 50s, therefore those women had a higher chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer then younger women.

The national rate of breast cancer in the U.S. is 13 percent. It is believed that about one in eight women will contract the cancer. The rate of breast cancer frequency in the study was lower than the national average.

The study was funded by the National Cancer Institute and the World Cancer Research Fund as a part of a health study exploring the links between lifestyle, diet, and disease.

According to the study, there is an association between milk consumption and breast cancer—but not causation.

The scientists found that consuming as little as a third of a cup of milk a day was associated with a 30 percent increase in the risk of breast cancer. For women who drink two to three cups of diary milk per day, the study proclaimed the associated risk of developing breast cancer rose to more than 70 percent.

The study found no significant difference in comparing full fat to non-fat milk.

However, the researchers did not take into account other risk factors for breast cancer, including environment, ethnicity, family history, and genetics. The study was also done via questionnaire and analysis through a database rather than through independent testing, which may skew the results. In other words, the study is not fully conclusive and more testing is needed. However, the researchers are warning that “current guidelines for dairy milk consumption could be viewed with some caution.

Since there was no independent testing conducted, it is unknown if there is a connection or not.

According to American biochemist Dr. T. Colin Campbell, daily milk is one of the most harmful foods consumed by humans, and he has the scientific research to back up his claim. Campbell has been warning people for years that milk “turns on cancer” and that it “leeches calcium from your bones.” Dr. Campbell is known for his influential book The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted And the Startling Implications for Diet, Weight Loss, And Long-term Health. The book, based on a 20-year long study conducted by the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine, Cornell University, and the University of Oxford, documents serious negative implications of consuming milk.

The China Study examines the link between the consumption of animal products (including dairy) and chronic illnesses such as coronary heart diseasediabetesbreast cancerprostate cancer, and bowel cancer.[3] The authors conclude that people who eat a predominantly whole-food, plant-based diet—avoiding animal products as a main source of nutrition, including beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese, and milk, and reducing their intake of processed foods and refined carbohydrates—will escape, reduce, or reverse the development of numerous diseases.

According to Campbell, the main protein found in cow’s milk is called casein and is a serious carcinogen that can have major consequences for public health in America and around the world.

Casein is the most relevant chemical carcinogen ever identified, make no mistake about it.” – Dr. Colin Campbell

Campbell says that milk actually makes bones weaker by leaching calcium from them.

One thing animal protein does is trigger metabolic acidosis. This happens when the body produces too much acid and becomes very acidic, which can be caused by multiple things, including the absorption of casein found in animal protein. Casein makes up almost 90 percent of the protein in a cow’s milk. When the body experiences this type of acidosis, it actually forces the body to compensate by leaching calcium from the bones to help neutralize the increased acidity. Over time, all of this can have severe and detrimental effects on bone health, and studies have shown this,” Katherine S. Pollard, a PhD at the University of California, San Francisco, said in a lecture.

The primary reason for this, as Dr. Campbell states, is that the consumption of casein protein creates an acidic condition in the body, known as metabolic acidosis, which is widely perceived to be a primary driver of a litany of diseases and poor health conditions and has even been called a precursor to cancer.

A previous study of men suggested dairy products might increase a male’s risk of developing prostate cancer by 30 to 50 percent.

Last year TMU reported that a trial showed that human breast milk may do the opposite due to a chemical contained within called Alpha1H. This chemical helps break tumors up into smaller fragments which the body can then rid itself of via urine.

So what’s a milk lover to do? There are many alternatives on the market for daily milk. Milk doesn’t just come from cows. Alternative milks, including those made from coconuts, almonds, oats, flax, and more are readily available in stores and are very easy to make yourself. Often these milks provide even more nutrients than cow milk does too.
