If Our DNA Is Being Sold, Shouldn’t We Make The Profit?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Companies like 23andMe, Ancestry.com and others are collecting your DNA data and can sell the data to third party companies. Timicoin is a blockchain based ecosystem that allows you to monetize your health data.

  • Reflect On:

    Shouldn't you have the option to sell your own data? Is your DNA data safe with some of these companies? The blockchain is helping to create further security and consumer-based monetization of personal data.

Amidst the rise in popularity of companies who take samples of our DNA in order to provide us with information about our ancestry and health risks, there are growing concerns that are not immediately apparent to the average consumer. While most are just happy to be getting exotic information about where they came from and what they should be watching out for health-wise, all for little more than a few hundred dollars, not many consumers are seeing this as a threat to their privacy, and more specifically, as a threat to their control over the most essential information about their unique personal identity–their DNA sequences.

“The key thing about your genetic data … it is uniquely yours. It identifies you, so if you are going to entrust it to a company, you should try to understand what the consequences are,” said Jennifer King, director of consumer privacy at Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, whose research on the issue and interviews with individuals shows a lack of consumer knowledge.

Company Disclaimers

Of course, companies who deal in such services will do all they can to convince consumers that their data is safe and secure. But as this CNBC article notes,

Companies in this space, including 23andMeVeritas Genetics and Ancestry, have a good reason to protect your DNA — their business future depends on maintaining the trust of consumers. But there are thorny issues related to genetic privacy that still today don’t have easy answers or iron-clad legislative protections. And regulators aren’t convinced they are doing right by consumers. A recent Fast Company report indicates that 23andMe and Ancestry are being investigated by the Federal Trade Commission over their policies for handling personal info and genetic data and how they share that info with third parties.

All of these companies say they have clear policies that they will not share your DNA with any third-party unless you explicitly consent to it:

23andMe provides consumers the choice of opting into research conducted on behalf of academic, nonprofit and industry organizations. They also offer an option to consent separately to specific disease studies in which their DNA is used in conjunction with for-profit drug companies, such as the Parkinson’s disease research conducted with Genentech and the lupus and IBD research conducted with Pfizer.

Abuse Of Private Data

Hearing about research conducted on behalf of ‘academic, nonprofit and industry organizations’ reminds me of the article I wrote on Cambridge Analytica’s fraudulent effort to characterize themselves as an academic organization while mining people’s private Facebook information to target them with ads for the 2016 U. S. Presidential Election. Facebook knowingly sold the information to Cambridge Analytica demonstrating that, when it comes to big companies and corporations, the only thing we know for sure is that money and profit will eventually trump respect for the privacy of people’s information.

If there is money to be made by selling our personal information, corporations will do whatever they can to skirt around privacy agreements. They may even flat-out change their policy and inform us in a pages-long letter that they know no one reads and will simply click the ‘accept’ button. In the current environment, it is wise to be extremely cautious when deciding to consent to having one company share our information, especially our genetic information, with third parties.

Think about it. As technology evolves, surely there will be ways our DNA codes could be used in the future that we would not agree with. But once we have given our consent to the use of this most private information, we can no longer guarantee what happens with it. Wouldn’t it be great if WE had control over our genetic information, encrypted and only accessible by us, to use and share in a manner of OUR choosing?

If we so choose, we may even be able to profit from it. Did you know that health information is a commodity that is already collected and sold via third-party companies? Selling health data around the world is already a multi-billion dollar industry, much like how your data collected from Facebook is. But how do we get back control of our DNA information, which could be our most valuable resource about who we are?

Think outside the box. Think blockchain. Think Timicoin.

Timicoin

Timicoin is a platform bringing together a crypto token and the blockchain and is pioneering the tokenization of health information, including your DNA sequencing and other genetic information, through a decentralized blockchain ecosystem. They promise to allow users to monetize their own data, have access to their health information whenever they need it and verify that it is accurate.

The Timicoin platform is built on their own custom blockchain and it’s already fully functioning. This means that in a short time, you will be able to begin using Timicoin’s blockchain to monetize your health data. For more information, please refer to this earlier CE article. You can also read Timicoin’s White Paper here.

Shift In Business Paradigm

Analysts believe that Healthcare information on the blockchain will grow aggressively in the coming years given the global need for ease of sharing healthcare information. Secure storage of our DNA information is only one part of Timicoin’s larger endeavor to make your healthcare information available globally and instantaneously as needed, but only with your personal consent.

It represents a new business paradigm, whereby information is centralized in terms of permitted access but decentralized in terms of who has the power over the information. No longer will masses of valuable personal information be owned and controlled by large corporations, but rather will be owned and controlled by each individual, not only giving the individual the ability to monetize their personal information themselves, but also securing the validity of that information through personal verification and safeguarding against fraud. Supporting blockchain technologies is supporting individual empowerment in our society, a move that undoubtedly scares the power structure at top levels of our current corporatocracy.

US Coronavirus Model Drops Predicted Deaths Down To Approximately 60,000 People

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a research organization at the University of Washington, have revised their prediction based on updated data to approximately 60,000 deaths in the United States as a result of the new coronavirus.

  • Reflect On:

    Were the measures that governments took necessary? Should they have the ability and power to take away our rights and freedoms, and in some cases, our ability to go outside?

According the  Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there were approximately 45 million cases of the flu in the United States during the 2017-2018 influenza season, which resulted in nearly one million flu-associated hospitalizations and an estimated total of 61,000 deaths associated with the flu. It begs the question, did this overwhelm our hospitals that year? When it comes to the new coronavirus, the White House recently expressed that the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), a research organization at the University of Washington, have revised their prediction based on updated data to approximately 60,000 deaths in the United States as a result of the new corona virus, out of 327,000,000 Americans.

Keep in mind, this is not a comparison to the flu, at all, this is simply a prediction of numbers. If  the coronavirus ends up killing just as many people as the flu in the United States, that still doesn’t mean it’s the same.

This is encouraging, given that just last week, the White House was suggesting that up to 200,000 American citizens will die from the new coronavirus. The briefing included projections between 100,000 and 200,000 as a possible best-case scenario but obviously, this isn’t the case anymore. It’s also a dramatic drop from predictions that were ranging in the millions when the virus first started to make its way around the globe, causing fear, panic and hysteria, something many people are still experiencing today as a result of, I would say, media.

Another common theme that’s floating around right now is when people can take antibody tests, for those who desire to do so, because as you probably already know, the new coronavirus can still be present in someone who is asymptomatic. This has many experts suggesting that the total infection rate in the United States and globally is most probably significantly higher than what the numbers are showing. This means that the final death rate will most likely be much lower than what is and will be reported.

Experts in the field have suggested that an accurate death rate will most likely match that of the common seasonal flu.  As soon as the World Health Organization put out a case fatality rate of 3.4% for the new coronavirus, multiple academics jumped in and criticized the projection. Three medical professors from Stanford University were among the first to do so. According to an article recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine by Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, Dr. H. Clifford Lane, and Dr. Robert R. Redfield,  the case fatality rate may be less than one percent, and the clinical consequences of Covid-19 may be more similar to that of a severe seasonal influenza. You can read more about that and access that specific article, here.

Not only has the infection rate come under scrutiny, but so has the death rate. There is ample evidence suggesting that the number of deaths attributed to the new coronavirus have not actually come as a direct result of the coronavirus, that coronavirus deaths may actually be miscalculated.  I recently published an article about going into the evidence and providing more detail on that, you can read it here if interested.

So, at the end of the day, we may be looking at a higher infection rate, and a lower death rate than what the numbers show. This begs the question, are the actions multiple governments have taken at all justified?  Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, a specialist in microbiology and one of the most cited research scientists in German history recently shared his thoughts on the measures that are being taken to combat the new coronavirus. He called them “draconian” and unnecessary, and explained why, to him, they don’t make any sense at all. You can read more about that and watch his video here.

It does make you think, doesn’t it? It’s even more of a head scratcher when people are being censored and deemed as ‘false news’ for simply sharing their opinion, like Dr. Ron Paul, who recently stated,

People should ask themselves whether this coronavirus “pandemic” could be a big hoax, with the actual danger of the disease massively exaggerated by those who seek to profit – financially or politically – from the ensuing panic.

That is not to say the disease is harmless. Without question people will die from coronavirus. Those in vulnerable categories should take precautions to limit their risk of exposure. But we have seen this movie before. Government over-hypes a threat as an excuse to grab more of our freedoms. When the “threat” is over, however, they never give us our freedoms back. (source)

One more thing that I must mention is with regards to the treatment. Events like the coronavirus are a great way to see what governments really care about. This was even more evident not only by the information above, but by the fact that successful treatments were not, and are not receiving much attention from the mainstream media. We have written about that in depth as well, you can see a few examples here, as well as here if you desire more information about that and what specific treatments we are talking about.

Meanwhile, Bill Gates can come on television and state that things won’t go back to normal until a vaccine has reached the entire world. But is this even true?

It begs the question, do our authorities and health care system/pharmaceutical companies actually prioritize our health? Or are they simply in it to turn a profit, among other things? Are our systems that surround us actually designed with the intention to protect us, and treat us? Or is something else going on here?

Are events like these simply used, created, heightened and capitalized on to usher in ‘bigger brother?’ A heightened national security state, one where our rights and freedoms are continually stripped from us, while many agree with the justification to do so as a result of massive propaganda? Similar to what we’ve seen with “the war on terror?”

These are just questions, and as time continues to pass they become more and more relevant, which is why asking these questions has now come under intense scrutiny.

The Bigger Picture

I believe events like this coronavirus pandemic, and others like 9/11 for example, are part of humanities natural evolution. I believe they are happening more frequently now in order to ‘wake up’ even more people, because that’s just what they do. At the end of the day, this pandemic will serve humanity more so than it hurts it, because when it comes down to it, the number of deaths and infections as a result of the new coronavirus won’t be to different from all of the other coronaviruses in circulation, which in itself will make people question just what has happened here. Scientists were able to see it early on, and there will be more publications like the paper recently published in The International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents titled “SARS-CoV-2: fear versus data which stated  “that the problem of SARS-CoV-2 is probably being overestimated.” (source) The next question is, was the problem being over-estimated purposefully so a powerful group of people could propose the solution? This kind of thinking is far from a conspiracy theory.

At the end of the day, events like this make us question whether this is really the type of human experience we want to participate in? Why do we continue electing people? Why do we believe that powerful corporations will take care of our health? Why do we believe that one person or group of people can change the world? Why do we keep putting our power in the hands of the few and expecting them to make some sort of significant change on the planet? Why do we believe that electing a certain president will ever solve the real problems humanity faces today? Why are we all still participating and agreeing? Why do we constantly look to our governments for answers and solutions? Why do we continue to believe them? And why are we so easily manipulated and controlled to the point where mainstream media can control our thoughts, perception and emotions about certain events over, and over and over? Is it getting to a point where it’s a “do what we say” or else, type of existence, under the guise that those instructions are necessary for the greater good?

Manipulation and deception can only continue as long as we allow it, and the manipulation and deception we’ve faced with regards to this ‘pandemic’ again, will only serve and help more people question our current paradigm.

The Vatican’s Cardinal George Pell Is Freed From Jail & His Child Sex Abuse Convictions Are Overturned

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Cardinal George Pell, a high ranking Vatican official who was convicted of child sexual abuse has been set free, and all charges have been dropped.

  • Reflect On:

    How many people in powerful places are involved in such activity?

Special Note To Our Readers: We are concerned that our Facebook Page will be deleted, so we are encouraging all those who want to continue to receive and be able to find our content to sign up for our email list

Cardinal George Pell, who  a couple of years ago became  the highest ranking Vatican official to ever be convicted of child sexual abuse, has now been freed from jail after Australia’s highest court overturned his conviction. The 78 year old senior Catholic figure was facing a six-year jail sentence after a jury found he was guilty of sexually abusing two boys in Melbourne in the 1990s.  Seven judges ruled unanimously in Pell’s favour, stating that the jury who found him guilty had “not properly considered all the evidence presented at the trial.” Throughout the entire time, Pell maintained his innocence from the moment he was charged in June of 2017, and despite what’s happened since, regardless of whether he’s actually innocent or not, his case has brought even more attention to the on-going problem of pedophilia and sexual abuse in high level places, like the Vatican.

Although the conviction against Pell has been dropped, people will forever ponder if this man is actually guilty of what he was accused of, and perhaps much more. Unfortunately, sexual abuse within the Vatican, and other places of power has been an issue for quite some time. It begs the question, how is this type of activity able to persist and sustain itself? The answer may be simple, it could be that those involved are simply some of the most powerful people in the world. A retired police detective of 25 years, John Wedger, spent a lot of his time investigating child abuse and how it operates continually without being taken down. People are threatened, and in some cases those whom one goes to in order to solve the problem, a ‘higher up,’ is actually involved in it, and the investigation gets shut down You can watch the full testimony of Wedger, here.

It’s disturbing to contemplate the idea that Cardinal George Pell is or would be involved in such things, after all, he himself established The Diocesan Commission Into Sexual Abuse in 1996. If he is in fact guilty, this leads to the point above made by Wedger, that the people responsible for tackling this issue are actually involved and part of the problem. That being said, Pell is innocent under the law.

It’s no secret that sexual abuse scandals have plagued the Catholic Church for decades, and it seems almost every single year. For example, prior to the accusations against Pell, in 2015 a lawyer by the name of Ulrich Weber uncovered that for the the thirty year reign of boys choir run by Benedicts XVI’s elder brother, approximately 600 boys with a “high degree of plausibility” were victims of sexual and physical abuse, or both. The report identified 500 cases of physical abuse, and 67 cases of sexual abused committed by a total of 49 people in a position of power within the church. (source)

Furthermore, it was only a few months ago when Carlo Maria Vigano, former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States and Secretary-General of the Governor of Vatican City, implicated multiple church officials, including Pope Francis, in sexual abuse. You can read more about that here.

With everything that’s emerged with regards to Jeffrey Epstein and child sex trafficking over the past couple of years alone, it really makes one wonder, Especially the fact that it seems Epstein was involved in a blackmail operation and working for some powerful people.

A couple of years ago, Pope Francis compared child abuse within the Catholic Church to a “satanic mass.”

The Reverend Gabriele Amorth is another example, he was an Italian Roman Catholic Priest, and an exorcist of the Diocese of Rome, which is an administrative branch of the Catholic Church of Rome. He claimed to have performed tens of thousands of exorcisms over his half a dozen plus decades as a Catholic Priest, and has mentioned a number of times how Satanism is practiced within the Vatican.  He has also claimed that girls are commonly kidnapped by a gang of Vatican police and foreign diplomats. He claimed that these girls are recruited for Vatican parties, and crimes with a sexual motive.

Malachi Martin, an Irish Catholic priest and writer on the Catholic Church who published many books exposing the Vatican was  originally ordained as a Jesuit priest, he eventually became Professor of Palaeography at the Vatican’s Pontifical Biblical Institute and was one of many who exposed the practice of Satanism within the Vatican.

These are just a few examples of why so many people believe something fishy is going on, regardless of whether or not Pell is innocent or guilty. Is something beyond the abuse of children happening here? Some sort of ‘ritual’ abuse? How has this been ongoing for so long? How are these people and places still able to operate with such power? It seems that they are quite untouchable.

If you’re curious and want to go a little deeper into this kind of thing, beyond the Vatican and into high ranking politicians, possible Royal Family pedophilia and more, you can refer to this article as it goes into much more detail and provides more information.

Our Interview With A Survivor of Elite Level Child Sex Trafficking

Anneke Lucas is an author, speaker, advocate for child sex trafficking victims, founder of the non-profit organization Liberation Prison Yoga, and creator of the Unconditional Model.

Her work is based off her 30-year journey to restore her mental and physical wellbeing after surviving some of the worst atrocities known to humankind before the age of 12. Sold as a young child into a murderous pedophile network by her family, she was rescued after nearly six years of abuse and torture.

We recently conducted an interview with her. Below is a clip from the four part series, as it was a very long and detailed interview.

New Documentary Explores How Humans Can Make Contact With Extraterrestrials

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Dr. Steven Greer's new film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind teaches people how they can peacefully make contact with ETs. As of April 7th, you can watch it on major movie rental platforms.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it time humanity makes contact with ETs ourselves as opposed to having government control that process? Are we being made to think ETs are a threat to us?

When the world learned of a fact UFOlogists have known for decades, that UFOs have been visiting earth for many years, suddenly the UFO question went from “are UFOs real?” to “who is manning them?” Now, the public has a choice: either we continue to listen to mainstream media and government to inform us about the issue or we start listening to the UFOlogists who have been accurately talking about this for decades. Which one we choose will have a huge impact on where this goes.

In 2018, footage obtained by the To The Stars Academy from the US Navy showed unidentified flying objects being tracked on a military jet radar and camera. The footage revealed quality images of an incredibly fast-moving object that the Navy knew nothing about. This footage hit mainstream news everywhere, disclosing to the public that UFOs have in fact ben filmed by a credible source. Fast forward 1 year, the US Navy confirms that the video footage was, in fact, authentic and did show a UFO flying by, and once again mainstream media was all over it.

But along with the admission of UFOs came a threat narrative. The idea that these crafts could be dangerous, our enemies and that we should be careful about how we respond and prepare. Of course, this narrative was coming from the same organizations that had lied to the public about UFOs for decades, and now that they were admitting this reality, they also intend on controlling the narrative that goes along with it.

Dr. Carol Rosin was the first female corporate manager of Fairchild Industries and the spokesperson for Wernher Von Braun in the last years of his life. She founded the Institute for Security and Cooperation in Outer Space in Washington DC and has testified before Congress on many occasions about space-based weapons. In testimony with Dr. Steven Greer, Rosin claims that in the later years of his life, Wernher von Braun was trying to warn humanity about an emerging narrative that aliens were a threat to humanity.

Dr. Wernher von Braun was a top-ranking SS officer who headed the Nazi rocket program during WWII. He was brought to the US via Operation Paperclip where the US seized Nazi scientists to come work for them after the war. During testimony, Dr. Carol Rosin stated the following about what Von Braun told her:

“The enemy at first he said, the enemy against whom we’re going to build a space based weapons system . . . First the Russians are going to be considered the enemy . . . then terrorists would be identified and that was soon to follow . . . then we were going to identify third world crazies, we now call them nations of concern. . . . The next enemy was asteroids . . . [and] against asteroids we’re going to build space based weapons.

And the funniest one of all, was against what he called aliens, or extraterrestrials, that would be the final card. And over, and over, and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving his speeches for him, he would bring up that last card.

‘And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We’re going to have to build space based weapons against aliens,’ and all of it, he said, is a lie.” (source)

According to Rosin, Von Braun knew that it was the interest of intelligence agencies to lie to the public about aliens in order to push forth a space weaponization agenda. And right now, here in 2020, this is precisely the agenda we are seeing play out as UFOs are disclosed to the public.

This is why I stated at the beginning of this article, that who we decide to listen to when it comes to the ET story that is emerging is very important. Leaving it to those posing a threat narrative may lead us to destructive ends, whereas listening to those with a different message, who have been proven to be correct over the years, might lead us to peace.

The bottom line is, up to this point, human governments have been the face of how humans contact and engage with ETs – is it time the people take this task on by themselves? And send a different message to ETs?

Enter Dr. Steven Greer’s new film Close Encounters of The Fifth Kind. The film not only discusses quite clearly exactly what this threat narrative looks like and how it’s being used to keep humanity in the dark about what’s really going on with ETs, but it also explores how humans can make contact with ETs themselves.

The first aspect of what this film covers will truly give viewers a much better understanding of how to navigate ongoing ET disclosure narratives as they come from the government. It will help viewers unlock a sense of discernment within themselves and begin to see through many narratives coming from popular voices and institutions who may be knowingly or unknowingly spreading a false threat narrative.

The next aspect of this film is where we dig into solutions from a point of consciousness. Information spreading around the world to wake people up to the reality o ETs is one thing, but affecting global consciousness and creating unity is something else. And this film lays out a plan to make that happen.

Personally, I have been practicing contact with ETs for about 11 years, and the content shared in this film does align with the experiences I have had and methods I’ve used. Never had I had a “bad” or “threatening” contact experience, and thus I do not resonate with the general narrative coming from government on this.

I truly believe people should check out this film so regular citizens can be the face of extraterrestrial contact on behalf of humanity – not governments. Now is the time, not next year or the year after, now. Especially with us all being on lockdown, what better time than to go out at night and choose to connect?

In the movie you will also learn:

  • CE-5 contact techniques and show the amazing evidence of Contact as never before!
  • the consistent results that people doing CE-5 experience.
  • the connection between consciousness and space, time and matter.
  • the nature of consciousness as an unbounded field of awareness that transcends the limits of space, time and matter — and yet is fully present in every point of space and time. This infinite field of consciousness is present within every awake, sentient being — human and ET.
  • how ET electromagnetic communications systems interface with our consciousness and coherent thought in such a way that any human with a peaceful, sincere intent can make Contact. NOW!
  • remote viewing — a way to view non-local events.
  • scientific evidence that proves that Mind-Consciousness is not limited to your body or brain but is a seamless field of awareness that connects all times, places and matter.
  • how 1% of the population meditating and making peaceful contact can cause a “phase transition” shift that transforms the entire planet and moves humanity onto a peaceful future that is Interstellar.
  • and take you behind the “Alien Mask” of deceptive events and phenomena.
  • how deceptive events are created by shadowy Unacknowledged Special Access Projects in the military and intelligence community that are designed to sow fear and division among humans regarding the ET presence.
