THIRD WORLD: Flint mayor suspends garbage pick-ups, tells residents to keep trash inside pending further notice

Flint Michigan

(NaturalNews) A dispute over who should be paid to pick up the trash has left residents of Flint, Michigan, which made national headlines this last spring over its ongoing water crisis, with nowhere to put their garbage but piled up inside their homes.

The office of the city’s mayor, Karen Weaver, issued a notice on July 30, one day after Flint’s previous contract with Republic Waste Services expired, notifying residents that they should avoid putting out their trash on August 1, and instead keep it inside.

“Due to the circumstances, there will be no trash pick-up in the city starting this Monday, Aug. 1, 2016,” the notice read. “Until a new agreement is officially in place, we ask the residents not set their trash out at the curb to prevent animals from disturbing it and make [sic] the situation worse.”

The circumstances center around an ongoing battle between Mayor Weaver and the Flint City Council over which company should be contracted to pick up the city’s trash. Mayor Weaver wants it to be Rizzo Environmental Services, and the City Council wants it to be Republic Waste Services.

The benefit of using Rizzo is that the company bid $2 million per year less than Republic, which would save residents money. But the opposition insists that Rizzo has connections with former Flint Mayor Woodrow Stanley, not to mention some unsavory ties with Michigan’s northern neighbor, Canada.

According to M Live, the council voted 8–1 on July 18 against hiring Rizzo. Mayor Weaver later vetoed this decision, only to have the council come back and override that veto. The situation is now at a standstill, as the opposing sides war over what to do.

Republic’s apparent offer to continue providing trash services after the July 29 expiration of its contract, hinged upon a court hearing in which the council pushed for Mayor Weaver to reinstate trash pick-up. Mayor Weaver is also being charged with not adhering to the council’s vote and essentially ignoring it.

At this point, neither side admits to violating the city’s charter concerning the trash contract, but clearly one of them has, and Genesee County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Farah is set to hear the case and make a decision.

“We hope to have a new agreement in place that will allow crews to resume trash collection by the middle of the week,” Mayor Weaver told the press. “We realize this is an inconvenience and we’re working to resolve the matter as quickly as possible.”

Why is there so much corruption in Flint?

Such political theater may have gotten Flint its 15 minutes of fame with the lead in the water scandal, but this time around there are serious ramifications for public health that are entirely avoidable. Letting garbage just pile up in people’s homes because you can’t come to an agreement over who should take it to the dump is completely unacceptable, threatening public health in a whole new way.

The whole purpose of having a city council is to make decisions like those regarding trash pick-up, and it appears as though Mayor Weaver is acting out of harmony with the law in demanding that it be her way or the highway. This is the argument of the lawsuit that’s been filed against her.

The fact that Flint’s water crisis isn’t even over, with new criminal charges still being brought forward in that case, suggests that Flint’s government is deeply embedded with corruption that needs to be rooted out in order for it to move forward as a first world city. If this corruption isn’t dealt with, it will continue down the path to third world ruin.

Why are people still in jail after HIV transmission myths have been exposed?

HIV transmission

(NaturalNews) New research promises great hope for those suffering from a ravaging and potentially deadly disease – HIV, the virus that leads to AIDS – but it leaves in limbo those who have been persecuted and prosecuted for having unprotected sex while afflicted with the virus.

As reported by the UK’s Daily Mail, a day’s dose of a new anti-HIV drug nearly eradicates the risk of infection for anyone who is in a sexual relationship with a partner who is HIV-positive. The findings especially provide hope for researchers on the African continent, where new cases of HIV and AIDS are among the highest in the world.

Researchers found that when HIV-positive partners in couples – two-thirds of whom were female – were given antiretroviral therapy (ARV) to suppress the virus and stop the progression of the disease, and HIV-negative partners were given a daily pill that prevents infection (PrEP), incredible results were produced.

“HIV was virtually eliminated in this population,” the study’s lead researcher, Dr. Jared Baeten of the University of Washington, told Reuters. “More than 95 per cent of the HIV infections that we expected to see, we did not see.”

Researchers worked with more than 1,000 couples from Kenya and Uganda in conducting the two-year study, the results of which were announced Tuesday at the Durban International AIDS Conference in South Africa.

At the gathering, delegates are focusing on the United Nations goal of ending AIDS as a global health crisis by 2030.

‘Has to be a part of the puzzle’

For its part, South Africa has the most people of any nation in the world living with HIV; they account for 6.8 million of the 36.7 million who are infected each year.

Baeten said that the study was very good news for serodiscordant couples – that is, couples where one partner is HIV positive and the other negative – who would like to have children.

For the study, non-infected partners were given the preventative drug for six months, while their HIV-infected partner took ARVs, which reduced the viral load and, thus, the risk of infection.

“Couples really value something like this because it’s important for maintaining their relationship, for maintaining their family,” Baeten said. “PrEP offers a really potent, usable, deliverable HIV prevention strategy … PrEP has to be part of the puzzle for ending HIV.”

South Africa and Kenya are among seven nations around the world that have approved PrEP – or pre-exposure prophylaxis – Chris Beyrer, president of the International AIDS Society, noted in a briefing before the start of the conference.

But the drugs can be expensive, which is an issue that activists and governments alike are attempting to address. That’s where vitamin-rich anti-viral foods can likely help in reducing transmission rates.

“(We are) really going to focus on the affordability and access to PrEP and, we hope, really begin a PrEP access era globally,” said Beyrer.

Last week, Kenyan officials announced that the country would begin offering free PrEP to those in high-risk groups, including couples where one partner is infected with the HIV virus. Also, the government will provide ARVs to all who have been diagnosed positive.

The Daily Mail reported further that married couples account for 44 percent of all new infections in Kenya, which has an HIV-positive population of 1.5 million people, according to government data.

Less than half of those with the disease around the world are even receiving treatment for it. According to the UN, this is because many people do not know that they are stricken with the disease.

Now the world is on the verge of a new, highly effective treatment for the disease, but that won’t benefit any of the scores of people with the disease who have been jailed for having unprotected sex.

‘Disproportionate impact’

As noted by the website attn:, between 2008 and 2013, there were 180 prosecutions of people in the United States who were accused of spreading the disease under old laws that were passed long before the world had any real understanding of it, according to the Center for HIV Law and Policy.

Such laws mean that an HIV-infected person can be jailed for biting a person, spitting at someone or for having consensual sex, regardless of whether or not protection is used. Today, researchers know that HIV cannot be transmitted via saliva, but 32 states still have laws on the books like this – and people are still being sent to prison because of them.

attn: noted further:

“Enacted in the late 1970s and early 80s, these laws reflect an era when people were afraid of the growing prevalence of HIV or ‘gay cancer’ and thought you could get contract the disease simply by being around someone who had it.”

“While framed as public health measures intended to prevent the spread of HIV, in reality these laws stigmatize people with HIV and misrepresent the causes of HIV transmission, the treatment options, and outcomes for people living with HIV and disproportionately impact people of color,” Chase Strangio of the ACLU wrote earlier this month.

As noted by the HIV Law Center, “Thirty-two states and two U.S. territories have HIV-specific criminal statutes and thirty-six states have reported proceedings in which HIV-positive people have been arrested and/or prosecuted for consensual sex, biting, and spitting. At least 180 such prosecutions occurred from 2008 to 2013 alone.”

Prosecuting disease

The U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division has also noted in a “best practices” policy paper how to align HIV-related criminal statutes with “scientifically supported factors.”

“The stigma associated with HIV remains extremely high and fear of discrimination causes some Americans to avoid learning their HIV status, disclosing their status, or accessing medical care,” says the National HIV/AIDS Strategy for the United States, issued in 2010, the Justice Department noted. That stigma needs to end, as does the prosecution of those with the disease.

Cases that have been prosecuted include:

— A Texas man with HIV is currently serving 35 years for spitting at a police officer;

— A man with HIV in Iowa, who had an undetectable viral load, was given a 25-year sentence following a one-time sexual encounter during which he used a condom. And, though his sentence was suspended, he nevertheless was required to register as a sex offender, and cannot have unsupervised visits with his nieces, nephews and other young children;

— An HIV-positive Georgia woman got an 8-year sentence after failing to disclose her HIV status, in spite of testimony at her trial by two witnesses who said her sex partner was aware of her condition.

What’s stopping the USA government from creating new concentration camps?

CONCENTRATION CAMPS

 

 

America had unconstitutional internment camps as recently as the 1940s – how likely will they arise again?

There are a lot of things they don’t teach you in public school.

If you’re a truth-seeker living in the United States of America, the previous statement probably won’t surprise you. Thanks to the constant attempts to rewrite history and censor our nation’s occasionally murky past, it can be difficult to know what is the actual truth.

 <a href=”http://www.newstarget.com/middle-1.html”> <img src=”http://www.newstarget.com/middle-1.jpg” width=”300″ height=”250″ alt=”NT1″ /> </a&

Many of the things you learn about in elementary, middle and high school — unless you had a few rebellious teachers who taught the truth instead of their agenda — is a fabrication of the real history, if not an outright lie. From Christopher Columbus to the Civil War and the genocide of Native Americans, almost everything has been twisted to fit a specific ideology. As a result, many people are ignorant to worldly truths.

For instance, a surprising amount of Americans don’t know that there were internment camps on American soil at one point in time. And honestly, it wasn’t all that long ago — as recently as the 1940s.

During World War II when tensions were high, well over 100,000 Japanese-Americans were forced into stateside camps, thanks to the fears of the United States government. Under the guise of “safety,” these innocent people were treated like criminals by the powers that be. Even more disgusting? The U.S. refused to acknowledge that it even happened until the late 1980s. For over 40 years, they pretended that it never occurred.

So what’s stopping the federal government from forcing people into concentration camps again? Is there anything stopping them?

Reports of FEMA camps popping up all across the United States have left many people feeling uneasy, as this appears to be the first step in a long process of enslaving law-abiding American citizens. While there isn’t substantial evidence that these camps are being used in the same way, there’s a legitimate reason to be alarmed by their presence.

They’ve already done it to the Japanese. So who’s next?
