Nikola Tesla

The Nikola Tesla Interview Hidden for 116 Years! | EU

In 1899 Tesla gave this interview which has rarely ever been published for over 100 years.
In it Tesla pulls no punches and reveals the great conspiracy of science that was well under way, the suppression of ether and the introduction of a new fake science to conceal it as well as to suppress the work of Tesla himself.

Once, in 1899, Nikola Tesla had an interview with a certain journalist, John Smith, when Tesla said, “Everything is the light.” In one of its rays is the fate of nations, each nation has its own ray in that great light source, which we see as the Sun./.../

Cholesterol 2017

Clinicians and patients may find recent studies relevant to decisions about lipid-lowering therapy to be perplexing. There are now, for the first time, 3 evidence-based options to modify atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk via lipid-lowering medications. With new information emerging, recent guidelines aging, and decisions needing to be made, this is an opportune time to review lipid-lowering therapy in the age of increasing evidence-based choice. The focus in this Viewpoint is on typical patients, not those with extreme phenotypes.
When the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) published the Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults1 in 2013, only the use of statins, among lipid-lowering medications, was strongly supported by evidence of improved patient outcomes. The guideline’s emphasis on statins for secondary prevention and for individuals at higher risk of disease was reinforced by a recent report that estimated the treatment of 10 000 patients for 5 years would cause 1 case of rhabdomyolysis, 5 cases of myopathy, 75 new cases of diabetes, and 7 hemorrhagic strokes while averting about 1000 events among those with preexisting disease, and 500 among those with elevated risk but without preexisting disease.2 Despite this evidence, uptake of statins remains suboptimal in the United States and elsewhere and offers an opportunity for improvement. Moreover, despite the available research, evidence is lacking about the comparative effectiveness and safety of particular statins for specific individuals.3/.../

Fundador do Banco Pactual: “O calote vem aí. O sistema entrará em falência. Aplicações serão confiscadas”


O caos fiscal e econômico gerado no país desde o governo Dilma Rousseff e continuado pelo presidente Michel Temer poderá acabar de modo trágico, alerta o financista Luiz Cesar Fernandes

Segundo Fernandes, que é criador dos bancos Garantia e Pactual, em um curto período de tempo, a dívida interna pública atingirá 100% do PIB […] trocando em miúdos, toda a riqueza produzida no país será ‘sugada’ pelo governo federal para pagar contas que foram feitas de maneira irresponsável.
“A situação será insustentável e o país entrará em uma total ingovernabilidade […] o sistema entrará em falência e atingirá não só os grandes bancos como também (por conseqüência) as pessoas físicas.” declarou Fernandes.
Ele explica que as grandes instituições bancárias não terão outra saída senão impedir seus clientes saquem suas poupanças, seja à vista ou a prazo.
” O caos levará ao calote da dívida interna brasileira com o conseqüente confisco de aplicações financeiras.” explicou.
Não se trata de teoria da conspiração ou de pessimismo:
“Temer e sua equipe econômica aprofundaram a depressão econômica e o rombo fiscal poderá ultrapassar a casa dos R$ 800 bilhões.” escreveu o banqueiro.

Canakinumab for Atherosclerotic Disease

Referido pela AMICOR Maria Inês Reinert Azambuja

Antiinflammatory Therapy with Canakinumab for Atherosclerotic Disease

Paul M Ridker, M.D., et al.
August 27, 2017DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa1707914
Citing Articles (1)


Experimental and clinical data suggest that reducing inflammation without affecting lipid levels may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Yet, the inflammatory hypothesis of atherothrombosis has remained unproved.


Antiinflammatory therapy targeting the interleukin-1β innate immunity pathway with canakinumab at a dose of 150 mg every 3 months led to a significantly lower rate of recurrent cardiovascular events than placebo, independent of lipid-level lowering.

Spinoza: intellectual freedom

Aloyzio AchuttiemAMICOR - Há 3 horas
Why Spinoza still mattersAt a time of religious zealotry, Spinoza’s fearless defence of intellectual freedom is more timely than ever In July 1656, the 23-year-old Bento de Spinoza was excommunicated from the Portuguese-Jewish congregation of Amsterdam. It was the harshest punishment of *herem* (ban) ever issued by that community. The extant document, a lengthy and vitriolic diatribe, refers to the young man’s ‘abominable heresies’ and ‘monstrous deeds’. The leaders of the community, having consulted with the rabbis and using Spinoza’s Hebrew name, proclaim that they hereby ‘expel, e... mais »
