Police Brutality Victim Mysteriously Killed a Day Before Receiving $450K Settlement

Robert Hinton, 28, was killed just before midnight on Thursday, the day before he was scheduled to receive a $450,000 settlement from the city. Hinton had won the settlement roughly two months ago when it was decided in court that corrections officers used unjust force against him during his stay at Rikers Prison. Surveillance footage at the prison revealed that corrections officers hog-tied Hinton and assaulted him, all while he was already shackled and not threatening them harm in any way. Hinton was being transferred to another part of the jail but refused to leave his cell. According to the lawsuit, that is when five corrections officers, including a captain, entered his cell and assaulted him.

Your Fingerprint Is All Someone Needs to Know You Used Cocaine

Call it a line detector—law enforcement agencies may soon have a way to test for cocaine use through a quick, non-invasive fingerprinting technology. Rather than looking for trace amounts of cocaine itself, a new test developed by a team of researchers led by the University of Surrey looks for the products of cocaine metabolism. When the body breaks down cocaine, it produces benzoylecgonine and methylecgonine which are detectable in blood, urine—and even the sweat.

Saudi Arabia and ISIS – A Side by Side Comparison

Just yesterday, I published an article highlighting the latest deranged idea floated by Saudi Arabia’s monarchs to sue Twitter users comparing the barbaric kingdom to ISIS. Today, I present to you a power graphic courtesy of Middle East Eye, which demonstrates precisely why the Saudis are so sensitive about the topic. Namely, because the accusations are true.

Biometric Military Tattoos Explore ‘Human Circuit Board’

The tattoo could also be used to relay information about a soldier’s environment, such as whether he or she is being exposed to biological agents. According to TechCrunch, the tattoos are part of a new trend of “biowearables.” Chaotic Moon CEO Ben Lamm said, “This is not something that can be easily removed like a Fitbit. It can be underneath a flack jacket, directly on the skin to be collecting this data and being reported back.”

Inside France’s ‘Air Cocaine’ Scandal

Politicians in high places helped two French pilots escape the Dominican Republic, where they were convicted of smuggling 1500 pounds of cocaine. Dubbed the “Air Cocaine Affair,” the latest scandal in France reads like it could have sprung from the pages of an Ian Fleming novel. In late October, two French pilots facing a 20-year sentence for flying 26 suitcases of cocaine into the Dominican Republic mysteriously fled Latin America for their homeland.

Using New "Pre-Crime" Laws France Arrests 24 Climate Activists

As Intellihub's Shepard Ambellas writes, one-hundred and fifty heads of government, a.k.a. the elite, are gathering over the course of the next few weeks for a massive climate summit that’s anticipated to attract and indoctrinate over 40,000 visitors from around the globe. The summit, dubbed COP21, is sponsored by the United Nations (UN) and will reportedly focus on combating climate change. However it’s doubtful that geoengineering, which ironically is mostly to blame for current climate patterns, will even be a topic of interest to scheduled speakers. To boot any chance of that information making it out to the general public is limited as 24 activists have already been placed under house arrest."

How A Secretive Elite Created The EU To Build A World Government

Voters in Britain's referendum need to understand that the European Union was about building a federal superstate from day one As the debate over the forthcoming EU referendum gears up, it would be wise perhaps to remember how Britain was led into membership in the first place. It seems to me that most people have little idea why one of the victors of the Second World War should have become almost desperate to join this "club". That's a shame, because answering that question is key to understanding why the EU has gone so wrong.

Spending Was At An All Time Low For Black Friday This Year And Corporations Lost Billions

Scientists turn gold into foam as light as air & malleable by hand

The new material has taken the form of a foam, which is a thousand times lighter than solid gold. Yet, according to the researchers, it's next to impossible to tell the difference with the naked eye, because the so-called aerogel also boasts a metallic sheen. The gold foam is soft and malleable by hand. It consists of 98 parts air and only two parts of solid material. Of this solid material, over four-fifths are gold, and less than one-fifth is milk protein fibrils. This corresponds to around 20 carat gold, according to the researchers at ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology).
