Studying individual school districts in Texas, the epidemiologists found that those districts with the highest levels of mercury in the environment also had the highest rates of special education students and autism diagnoses. There was a strong, direct relationship between mercury and autism levels. The incidence of autism has grown dramatically over the last two decades, from about one in every 2,000 children to as high as one in every 166. The purported link between autism and mercury has been a subject of intense debate. In the past it has centered primarily on the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal, which was once widely used in vaccines. Many parents have argued that thimerosal causes autism because their children seemed to develop the neurological disorder shortly after they received childhood vaccinations.Physicist Is Awarded the Templeton Prize in Spiritual Matters
Dr. Charles Townes, a physicist who shared the Nobel Prize for helping to invent the laser, added another and most unusual prize to a lifelong storehouse of honors yesterday. In a news conference at the United Nations, he was announced as the winner of the $1.5 million Templeton Prize, awarded annually for progress or research in spiritual matters. Dr. Townes, 89, a longtime professor at the University of California, Berkeley, has long argued that those old antagonists science and religion are more alike than different and are destined to merge.Fans of GM Electric Car Fight the Crusher
GM agrees that the car in question, called the EV1, was a rousing feat of engineering that could go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under eight seconds with no harmful emissions. The market just wasn't big enough, the company says, for a car that traveled 140 miles or less on a charge before you had to plug it in like a toaster. Some 800 drivers once leased EV1s, mostly in California. After the last lease ran out in August, GM reclaimed every one of the cars, donating a few to universities and car museums but crushing many of the rest. Enthusiasts discovered a stash of about 77 surviving EV1s behind a GM training center in Burbank and last month decided to take a stand. Mobilized through Internet sites and word of mouth, nearly 100 people pledged $24,000 each for a chance to buy the cars from GM. GM refuses to budge.Secret FBI Report Questions Al Qaeda Capabilities
No 'True' Al Qaeda Sleeper Agents Have Been Found in U.S. A secret FBI report obtained by ABC News concludes that while there is no doubt al Qaeda wants to hit the United States, its capability to do so is unclear. The 32-page assessment says flatly, "To date, we have not identified any true 'sleeper' agents in the US," seemingly contradicting the "sleeper cell" description prosecutors assigned to seven men in Lackawanna, N.Y., in 2002. It also differs from testimony given by FBI Director Robert Mueller, who warned in the past that several sleeper cells were probably in place.Scientists to make 'Stuart Little' mouse with the brain of a human
Telegraph (one of the UK's most respected papers), March 6, 2005
In one of the most controversial scientific projects ever conceived, a group of university researchers in California's Silicon Valley is preparing to create a mouse whose brain will be composed entirely of human cells. Researchers at Stanford University have already succeeded in breeding mice with brains that are one per cent human cells. In the next stage they plan to use stem cells from aborted foetuses to create an animal whose brain cells are 100 per cent human.Maximum pain is aim of new US weapon
New Scientist, March 2, 2005
The US military is funding development of a weapon that delivers a bout of excruciating pain from up to 2 kilometres away. Intended for use against rioters, it is meant to leave victims unharmed. But pain researchers are furious that work aimed at controlling pain has been used to develop a weapon. And they fear that the technology will be used for torture.No Secrets: Eyes on the CIA
Newsweek - March 7, 2005
Aviation obsessives with cameras and Internet connections have become a threat to cover stories established by the CIA to mask its undercover operations and personnel overseas. U.S. intel sources complain that "plane spotters"–hobbyists who photograph airplanes landing or departing local airports and post the pix on the Internet–made it possible for CIA critics recently to assemble details of a clandestine transport system the agency set up to secretly move cargo and people–including terrorist suspects–around the world.
evidence of CIA torture network
Sydney Morning Herald - March 8, 2005 (includes information from 60 Minutes)
More details have emerged of a Central Intelligence Agency fleet of secret jets said to transport terrorism suspects around the world for interrogation in countries that the State Department has consistently accused of regularly torturing prisoners. According to the CBS television program 60 Minutes broadcast on Sunday, suspects had been flown to Morocco, Egypt, Libya, Guantanamo Bay and even some former Soviet republics such as Uzbekistan, which, the State Department says, regularly uses torture in its prisons and detention centres.
former CIA agent condemns new terror war
Sunday Herald - Feb. 27, 2005 (Scotland's leading Sunday newspaper)
It was on September 15, just a few days after the attacks on New York and Washington, that George Tenet – then director of the CIA – produced at top secret document known as the Worldwide Attack Matrix for ratification by President Bush. It was, in effect, a licence to kill. Among the actions already under way or being recommended in the document were those ranging from "routine propaganda to lethal covert action in preparation for military attacks." Implemented as outlined, the Matrix, "would give the CIA the broadest and most lethal authority in its history."

Note: A lot of information has been flying around on the Internet about Codex Alimentaris. As it has become such a hot topic, we are providing a link to the best, most reliable article on the subject that we've seen.
