The scientific literature shows that, while non time. As such it should be rejected by both the Australian and New Zealand 40 years of research. J As stated in the preface, the DR is based on governments. The biological effects of microwave radiation on living organisms have been the subject of extensive research for the past four decades.
The most comprehensive programs were conducted by the Soviet and Eastern Bloc nations. The US has lagged behind badly in this area of research. Under IEEE, a blue-ribbon panel of experts periodically reviews the research database and assesses the need to revise the standards. Until , these standards did not consider the possible biological effects of "pulsed" microwaves.
The existence of nonthermal effects is essentially denied by omission. The US research community was aware of the Soviet findings of deleterious biological effects at exposures well below the ANSI standards. The Soviet findings were rejected for various reasons. The principal reason was that US attempts to duplicate the Soviet results were rep.
The resnlts of this search have been consolidated into a computedzed database which we have shared with the Armed Forces Medical Intelligence Center and the Central Intelligence Agency. We attempted to share the database with the Armstrong Laboratory. These were researchers who were reporting the positive existence of nonthermal effects. Researchers stress 'the chronic,. The verification of blood-brain 'oarrier suppression should have a high priority.
The passage of normal blood-borne toxins into the brain could explain some previously observed -early behavioral aberrations, loss of physical endurance, and functional central nervous system and perceptual changes. The Soviet studies of humans under occupati. These results are the macroscopic part of the issue. The microscopic part of the issue urgently needs to be addressed-namely the physical mechanisms behind the various observed biological effects.
Various theories and interaction models exist to explain, in a limited way, some of these physical mechanisms for specific effects. None have yet been positively verified. The relationships between these variables and specific human responses should be of prime importance to the directed energy weapon DEW development programs. The ability of certain modulation frequencies imposed on various carrier frequencies to affect lock onto circadian rhythms poses a formidable research problem.
A principal question raised is the existence of "frequency windows" and resonanc. The past several issues of Bioelectromagnetics have contained many articles by prominent US researchers which report nonthermal effects.. New concerns are also forthcoming, i. It does not really matter whether the Chinese, Koreans, Japanese or Russians were the firsn.
To be exact, it isn't really a fungus as such, but rather a community of yeast and bacteria. One authority describes it as a lichen. The origin of the name could be Japanese, with kombu standing for the brown tea algae and ella for tea. The best description, in my opinion, is that of the herb'llist, Pastor Weidinger, whom I have used as a source throughout this book.
He says: "Kombueha tea is an ancient East Asiatic beverage which came out of the ocean For three years I was a missionary on the island of Taiwan This province is regarded as the origin for "tea", i. Today it is called Ch:a. In the province of Fukien, however, it ,is still called Te. Was it wine which tasted like a delicious tea or an unusual tea that tasted like a rare wine?
Notably, after drinking this beverage, I not only felt stronger after the long and tiresome walk but, strangely enough, fe'lt healthier. In particular it helped my metabolism a great deal in this climate and made me feel very relaxed. When I asked what it was, K'un-Pu-eh'a came the reply. I was startled. The tea was given different rrames. One of the most famous was the "Godly Tsehe". This particular tea was used as a remedy for chronic gastritis. People also tell of the Korean medicine man named Kom-bu who, in the year , prescribed the tea to heal the Japanese Emperor's disorders.
He studied medicine in Prague and had his first contact with jthe Kombucha fungus in a monastery. In the s he published his research in the scientific and genera] press, which resulted in increased awareness of Kornbucha's healing and strengthening properties. Dr Sklenar's matn area of work became the biological treatment of cancer, and he integratedl Kombucha with this programme. His healing methods were so successful that they were adopted by many doctors. When in was reported that Dr Veronika Carstens wife of a former German President was using Kombucha with all her cancer patients, ,the fungus beverage became a popular healing remedy.
Reports dealing with healing successes are often generalised and passed on withoun the desired research. With medicinal herbs, for instance, the general perception is that they can only heal and do not have any negative side-effeas. In fact, what is a health remedy for some may prove to be quite the opposite for others. When I first received the Kombucha fungus from a friend, I was given an ,information leaflet about Kargasok tea. She actually met a man at the age of who!
To make this tea, the Japanese woman received a sp'ecial yeast fungus and instructions on how to use the fungus. She took the fungus with her to Japan where she started to duplicate it. Her friends were invited to drink the tea as well and she also passed the fungus on to them with instructions on its use.
They passed it on to their friends. Eventually the tea found its way to Taiwan, then to Hong Kong and now travels around the world where it is passed on ,from one friend to another as a token of appreciation and love. This tea appears to be a miraculous remedy for many types of suffering. There is evidence that Kombu:ha helps restore hair. This living organism ferments sweetened tea to become the Kombucha beverage. The refreshing taste gives one a feeling of well-being. The amount of living yeast it contains gives toe Kombucha beverage an active life which continues after decanting it into bottles.

The recommended amount to drink daily is three average-sized wine glasses, one before breakfast and one 20 to 30 minutes after lunch and your evening meal.
Larger amounts can be consumed quite safely. These people recalled their mothers or grandmothers having a large container of between 10 to 20 litres 3 to 4 US gallons stored in a warm place. People drank the brewed beverage wilen required, and every now and again the container was refilled wit!

Some war refugees also brought this process with them to the West. A: A week from brewing is an average Itime. It should be neither too sweet nor too sour. If the taste is rather sour, then leave the next brew for one day less.
You may still drink the tea-it will be very good for you, though you may like to add some spring water or fruit juice! Q: Wbat is the correet temperature for the mushroom? A: The Korobucba mushroom likes the sort of temperature used in wine or brew fermentation. For that reason, if your room is cold in winter, for example , it might be useful to use a heated brewing mat or thermal coUar.
These can be purchased from most brewing shops. In summer, average daily room temperatures will be fine. An airing cupboard is a popular place in which to place the brew.

The big question is: What was Tesla up to at Colorado Springs? I believe if you look at Tesla's work it is obvious that he placed a high priority on energy, especially clean power. This is, as Tesla pointed out, the use of power lines to distribute the power to areas wh,ere it is required. Obviously, power lines do this quite well-except for the following objections: 1. The cost to supply and install power transmission lines is expensive, and a lot of maintenance is required. They are unsightly systems to view and could be classed as visual pollution.
The end result is a waste of power.. TesJa was most aware of this, and after a lot ot' thought and research came to one of his most profound discoveries: that the Earth is a far better cOllductor of electricity than any transmission line. The above statement should be thought. What it means is the following: ond, on the equator. Could the Earth be a giant rotary generator with a north and I. No need for power transmission lines. In other words, every rotary generator 3. Radio, television, fax, etc.
A final comment on this. There have through the Earth. If one reflects on the previous examples been many accoUnts of lightning leaping it can be see. So, we have been standLng on, Iliving on, The other matter to consider is: Why is the system not in use? Some of you may say, most cases, being aware of this. Another consideratiQn of the greatesl "Perhaps it does not work. Everyone is aware of telegraph circuits. It is also interesting to how serious these realities are. Tesla was very concerned, and did his note that the return circuit has much less best to correct these problems.
H is also more or less well known that, I consider all these problems are a test given half a chance, electricity will always for mankind-and until we solve these flow ba'ck to Earth, liKe water flowing problems on Earth, we will never conquer downhill!. As which, I believe, is mankind's trile destiny. Let's consider this another way.
When lighthing strikes the Earth, what happens? Another way to consider this is the following. We are moving at 1, miles per hour, or I, feet per sec-. It was hardly practical to fly these devices around New York-not if you wanted to keep them secret. Deep in thought as usual, he felt safe. Why not? He had been doing this for some time. But so it was to be, as he was soon to find out.
Horses were valuable creatures. If a rancher lost a horse, it had to be found. This particular ran. The man had noticed some strange things when he was pumping watcr from an old hand-pump. His wife had refused to use the pump for some time, and now he had felt the same sensation she'd reported. Usually the sight of the man with the bucket was enough for the horse to come up for his food-but not tonight. The ranger was surprised.
Why did the horse seem so jumpy? The horse had metal horseshoes. Every time he lifted a hoof from the ground, sparks two to three inches long arced back to. It galloped off in a frenzy, sparks jumping from the iron horseshoes as it sped aw. This was indeed a strange situation, thought the rancher. Meanwhile, some distance away, Tesla was adjusting his huge electrical oscillator, unaware ot' its effects on the horse.
He had lots of experience wi th these devices. Some years earlier he had reached the limit for these high-voltage machines in a city; hence the remote area of Colorado Springs was ideal for what he had in mind. The oscillator had been going for some time nQw. Tesla had set the device to increase slowly ,iOl power.
When it got to a certain intensity, it would be time for another test. This was a test that Tesla looked forward to. The cool Colorado air in his face reminded him of his native homeland. In the distance he could see the giant tower-like structure, feet high, with the metal ball on top. The entire vertical iron column was now glowing with a purple corona. It was a marvellous sight, Tesla thought. Tesla stepped onto a strange machine. It was approximatcly six feet wide by 12 feet in length.
Inside the box were rows of capacitors and coils. Underneath were sheets of copper on top. At the back was a large coil, about five feet diameter and about eight feet high. On top of this was a metal rod, about three inches diameter and six feet high. At the top was a metal ball, about 24 inches diameter. At the front was a small upright section. Tesla stood behind this and moved a lever.
There was a strange humming noise. Then, with a crackling noise, the platform lifted from the groundl like Aladdin's magic carpet. It was now time for a test run. It might be wise, Tesla thought, to keep away from this area. Best to go the opposite direction-less chance of being seen, and less populated. Things were going well. The platform was gradually rising higher-a sure sign that the osciIFator was increasing in power.
Tesla was now about three miles from the experimental station when he decided to land and do some adj. He had no sooner landed when, out of nowhere, the rancher came, looking for his horse. He had! But there was no escaping this situation. No such thoughts would have been in Tesla's mind-only thoughts of the eKperiment in hand. It was all too much for the rancher. These were simple country people. This had to be the work of the devil. Only one thing to do: run like hell and hope you lived to tell. Anyone wLtb names of other colleagues able to assist?

They may have already secretly determined your future behaviour. This is not the first time tl'iat you have uncoosciously perceived subliminal messages that could change your behaviour.
It's happened to you before thousands, perhaps millioo s of times. You are not alone. What bypasses the conscious mind on its way UlIO the subcooscious we are much more likely to deal with in an uncritical fashion - and thereby carry QUt the inslrUctioos or suggestions subliminally communicated to us. Dixoo, a British psychologist, author of Subliminal Perception which according to one ad agency president is their "operatiooal bible" , wrote: "It may be impossible to resist instructions which are not consciously experienced. There would seem to be a close parallel between these phenomena and those associated with, on the on:e hand,poslhypnotic suggestioo and, on the other, neurotic compulsive responses.
When it's used to seduce you into unconsciously buying, consum'ing, subscribing, auending, voting for the "right" candidate, remaining loyal to your brand of cigarettes or 'true to your favorite Scotch whiskey, it's called, subliminal seduction. In most instances, the manufacturers are totally unaware that subliminal advertising is being used to sell their products.
In fact, many employed by the advertising industry are similarly unaware. But while the ad industry claims they are guiltless - whiter than white - it appears that some in their I3nks are blacker thiln black. Judge for yourself. Study the Kanon advert for a moment next page According to Dr.
Key's students, this ad appeared in so-called men's magazines, such as PentMuse and Playboy. How does it make you fed? Using a ooe way mirror, Dr. Key found that as people thumbed through a magazine cootaining this ad, each potential customer was ellp0sed to it for about one to two seconds. AboUL one in ten Stoppedl to read the copy. After all, how mucb is there to see? In the lower left-hand quadrant of this ad, we see an upturned left Ihand holding a bottle of Kanoo cologne. Tn the upper right, we see the right Ihand holding a knife. This is an awflllly oice picture of a hand holding a bottle of colQgJle.
But how will that alone sell the product? Particularly since most of the millions of readers, who saw it will not recall it, nor will th. Yet the agency who handled the account, in all likelihood, tested its reliability and determined its sales capability before inserting it in highcirculation men's magazines that cost a great deal of money for advertising space. Why would the admell' be so confident that a photo of 'a hand holding a bottle would, work? No promises, no coupons to send in, no suggestion of the immediate materialisation of beautiful women if only you use it!
Based on industry norms, this ad would have had 10 sell about 1. But not subconsciously - a fact that no agency could overlOQk. What made this ad sell Kanon cologne? They were first described in by Dr. In Gestalt terminology. The mind can fliJrflop effortlessly from one image to the other. Very few people can see both images simultaneously. This kind of perceptual effect can be used to coovey subliminal information.
This ad uses 3 perceptual illusion similar to the "Rubin's profiles. Oile way of looking at it, it's merely a hand. But look at the hand, then look at your own hand at Ute s. And tht1l you begin to fmd out why a picture of a hand holding a boule costs so much mooey.
It is anatomically impossible for the thumbnail to be where it is ,in relatioo to the thumb knuckle, Similarly, it's impossible for the thumb, the thumbnail, the bottle,! They were photographed separately, pa. Study the area where the base of the thumb meets! Notice the two rather bulbous areas at the base of the hand which happen to resemble testicles. The rigid thumb resembles a semi-erect penis. What you are looking at is a two sided il1usioo, which is a hand on ooe side and a male genital on the other. It is interesting to note that! Now you might be thinking, "OK, so they put a male genital ill Ibe picture So what?
How docs that influence sales, even if it is repressed in the subconscious? Key explains, "The symbolism is predictable repressible, in view of readers'macho self-fantasies. As yet, there are not enough homosexuals to justify sizable magazine marketing investments. This maybe changing in America, however, in response to such manipulations of tne human uncoosci"ous," which could increase the number of homosexuals.
Key also points out that tile hand-genital symbolism could allude to masturbation. Or the content could suggest that it will1help the reader achieve a large, erect penis. While these factors alone might be enough to activate someone's perceptual defenses, there is much more. Consider lhe wife. It's about to slip. The anist has activated a fairly universal male fear of castration. And if you in the lower, right-handl quadrant of the ad, just below the bottle, you will see the head of a dog with an awl1through it.
Key isn't sure why a dead ,dog sells cologne. Animals, while frequently used in women's hygiene products, are seldom used in ads ai. But, as Dr. Key points out, "If it didn't sell the product, they wouldn't use it. At subconscious levels, it's unforgettable. Men's magazi'nes have millions of readers. This KanOn ad I and a multitude like it is probably still sloshing around in the readers' subconscious, influencing their behavior. Let's find out more about how sublimin.

Or is there? Examine the details critically. It's a patriotic ad of sorts. The two models are wearing swimsuits pauemed 'after the Union Jack and the red maple leaf - Canada',s national emblem. Key, "At the unconscious level, every minUte detail in a photograph is recorded instantly within the brain. Like the Kancm ad and virtually every o! Yet aU the information and its meaning are recorded instantaneously at subconscious levels.
Take, for example, the female model's. They have wrinkles in the front and they are sagging. Considering the high cost of advertising and ,the importance of how the product looks, it's surprising that neither Jantzen nor their agency demanded a better fit ,or took the trouble to airbrush out the wrinkles and the zipper. The zipper? It seems like someone made a terrible mistake when this ad was phQtograIiled.
For she's wearing his trunks. And his are too snug and, oddly, match the design of her top. In Olher words he's wearing her suit and she's wearing his. It's no accident, however. Whoever created the ad - probably an ad agency art director - took the ad several steps further to be sure its subliminal appeal sold bathing suits. LooIc at the female hand resting on the female model's hip. Who does it belong to'! At the angle show, it couldn't belong to the female torso in the picture. There is a third modd entirely off camera - with the ellception of her hand resting -on this erogenous zone. Key, this suggests the possibility of mhrage, da trois relationship - a man and two women.
See if you can find it. Located right between the female model's legs, it apptars to be a face with the cheeks puffed out, blowing on a sensitive portion of her anatomy see diagram. This subliminal "embed" embedd'ed image is only QIle of many, many ways used to invade YOUl' consciousness. How do subliminals work? The answer is tha,t no one really knows. The reason for this is simple: no one knows exactly how the brain works. Despite our vaunted 'knowledge, scientisls do nell fully llIiderstand the processes that go into raising and lowering a finger.
But that doesn't mean s. Moreover, if admen are true to the. Most people would be outraged at the invasion of the most sensitive and private areas of consciousness by the admen in the pursuit of sales. Subliminal advertlsing lseems to appeal to the two dimensions of life common to ali' people: the origiQS of life love or sex and the end of life death and its Irelated implications of aggression and' viole.
As Dr. Key explains, "North American society has a vested! By exploiting unconscious fears, forcing them to repress sexual taboos, the media guarantees blind, n;pressed seeking for value substitutes through commer. Sexual repression, as reinforced by media, is a most viable marketing technology. And the theo-ries suggest that 'it is not the lecher who would be most affected. Similarly, a well adjusted 'swinger' although one may not really 'exist would be far less affected.
Key, "Fantasy modification would be most pronounced in individuals with strong, rigid,. The Parkay advert see diagram is a good candidate for "leasl memorable". It was published in Family Circle magazine in November of Observers found that really no one paid auention to the ad!.
Average exposure time was one to two seconds. Maybe one in fifteen readers spent an eXlra second ortwo to read the copy. It looked like money in the bank. But how? What is so sales-worthy about this photograph of some margarine on the end of a knife that would justify the millions of dollars invested in space for it? If you are really an intrepid investigator, you might buy SQme Parkay margarine and try. Yoo'll probably try for quite a while. Key has tried and was unble to get a glob of Parkay to even faintly resemble the photograph - an instant indication that this is an airbrush-created fantasy.
It turns out that Ithe two globs of Parkay form glans, or the heads, of two penises. The larger of the two has a highly identifiable coronal ridge. The heads of two penises on the edge of a knife blade could suggest male castration. But who is this ad aimed at? Unlike the Kanon ad which appeared in men's magazines, the Parkay ad aweared in Family Circle, a magazine read Iprimarily by women. Key, the suggestion of castration couldl be an unconscious motive for an insecure American housewife. What ad agency could resist the urge 10 exploitlher fear that her husband might be attracted a, younger woman by suggesting that if she fattens him up, he'll be less vulnerable.
And presumably, "old softies" - men whose age has rendered them impotent - get castrated as pynishment As the last sentence in the copy expfains, " By , Dr. Otlo Potzl established thal there was a strong relatiooship between subliminal stimuli, posthypnotic suggestion, and compulsive neurosi. An individual will perform acts - buy Parkay or anything else properly introduced at subconscious levels - without any conscious knowledge of why he is dQing such a thing, although he would most definitely have a conscious ratiooale highly compatible with his or heJself-image.
So "least memorable" enters her subconscious and sits there like a time bomb waiting to go off. Advertising agencies try 10 steer clear of the messy business of ethics and morality. Their job is to sell products. They loften appeal to heavy users of a product in their advertising - for an alcoholic beverage, those who dri. All llIey did wa. They didn't even bother to display any of the liquor itself. Yetlhis ad app. Those are facts of life, advertising style. Anyone who believes the frequently repeated statement"Advertising doesn't work" isn't aware ,of the economic of the situatioo.
Indeed, advertising works - particularly when the cuslOmer believes that it doesn't. If you look at the "ice cubes" close up, you'll notice melting faces, one race screaming, a skull, a bird, a monsler, a castrated penis, a devil mask, and more. The brain is able to perceive these images, although some are. Because of subliminal messages which play with subconscious fears and fantasies, our identity can 'become dependent uoonfhe wQrld of consumer goods. Heavy alcohol drinkers, those to whom this ad was aimed, are involved in a moostroos s'clf-destnlct syndrome.
Many are consciously aware thaI they are destroying themselves. Nevertheless, they compulsively and, in Ihe case of the alcoholic, addietively drink on.
See a Problem?
Key found that many recovered alcoholics were able to relate their withdrawal hallucinations to the imagery. It's entirely possible that this Johnnie Walker ad could have been researched at an AA meeting simply by listening 10 the testimonials of hallucination experiences. The great IlliIjority of aU alcoholic beverage advertising has subliminal stimuli, many using subliminal death and self-destruction imagery.
Indeed, it may be that the appeal to the death instinct or the suicide urge may be used to sustain the alcoholic beverage ind'ustry at its present size. One of the most important iave-ntions of the last thirty years is the tachistoscope. It's a hand liltle gadget that allows someooe to flash an im'age at speeds of up 10 , of a secood - well below the cooscious threshold of perception.
Test subjects reacted far beuer to the face when happy was flashed. Now stop and consider: if 'the mere flash of the words happy and angry change a person's evaluation of a neutral, expressiooless face, what results cou1d be obtained if the word sex were somehow permanently but subliminally displayed on, say, a product someone was advertising.
The advertiser might become so enthusedlthat he'd want to use it everywhere, for he'd have to search far and wide for a more powerful motivator - the pr. Advertisers might want 10 put the word sex on everything - display ads, pholOgraphs, display boxes, billboards, mailers, crackers, magazine covers, everything Researchers have found that words and piclures, when considered as subliminal stimuli, are mUllllllly reinforcing, integrative, and similar in their effects upon behavior. Now imagine how a crackerjack advertising man might feel about giving Ritz crackers sex appeal, like alcoholic beverages whose a-ds often show beautiful men and women in suggestive poses.
Imagine his sense of conquest by embedding the wordl sex on those homely little wafers, ,thereby transforming them into luscious, round, bit-sized morsels. Sex is virtually embedded in everyth,ing. It's in ads for liquor, cigarettes, film, cars - just about every consumer product. It's embedded in the covers of magazines - not just Playboy, and PefIJhouse, but Time, Newsweek, Life, and most other large ci rculation magazines, Although it is by far the most commonly used, sex is not the only word embedded in advertising.
The same principle that works for sex also works for other verbal substimuli. And although the advertisers' choice of hidden words doesn't identify them as masters of Elizabethan, English, it does show them to be cunning ex. Occasionally, phrases akin 10 posthypnotic commands are embedded: U Buy and Get It. One of the great calamities in the world is the frenzied pursuit of expensive coosumer items such as alcoholic beverages and cigarettes - that have. Yet most people accept this usage where we spend billions for the privilege of slowly and painfully destroying Qurselves Much subliminal advertising is apparently di rected toward the selfdestruction fantasies we have at subcooscious levels.

In fact, the eafliiest sketchy outline of a great southern continent can be found upon one of a number of carved stone world maps preserved in Iran, carved by Persians up to 3, years ago.

I guess someone in Europe is trying to instigate a similar scenario there. Dr Glen an. Carry on ,the good work. Recent studies into the effectiveness of puoto credit-cards have cast doubt over their ability to cut fraud. Dr Richard Kemp, of the Department of Psychology at Westminster University, London, organised an experiment involving a London supermarket to test the cards in 'the real world'. The supermarket was staffed by six people who were all warned to be on the lookout for fraudulent Icredit cards.
Dr Kemp arranged for 44 of his students to pose as shoppers and test the staff's ability to spot photo-card misuse. Each student was armed with four cards. One showed the student as they were, one showed the student wearing make-up, one showed an individual who vaguely resembled the student, and the last card depicted someone who looked nothing like the bearer.
The results of Dr Kemp's supermarket experiment proved very interesting. In all, the majority of fraudulent cards were accepted. Amazingly, 35 per cent of the cards bearing a ph0togFaph of someon-e completely different from the student were accepted. A massive 64 per cent of cards bearing a similar individual were also accepted.
And 14' per cent of cards bearing a true likeness of the student were rejected. A fcw British banks are already offering customers the opportunity to have their photograph etched ont0 their cards. Tney claim a reduction in fraud has resulted from this. Dr Kemp's findings would seem to contradict this belief. Dr Nicky Towell,. But this is not the case. This new science is now coming into its own as a highly effective identification method in the continually escalating battle against crime. One must ask though, what are the implications regarding privacy?
Latest on the list of biometric. Scientists have found that by taking pictures of a face using infra-red cameras, a unique heat-dis-. Once a picture is taken of a face, its thermal image can be matched with astonishing a-ccuracy against a database of pre-recorded therrnograms.
The system ,is so accurate that it can tell iden tical twins apart. In addition, the system cannot be fooled by cosmetic surgery or disguises, including facial hair. Other biometric systems such as retinal scans andl palm scanners require subject cooperation and intrusive analysis. The thermogram merely requires a camera to be pointing in your direction. Your face could be picked from a crowd of thousands within seconds and you wouldn't even know you were being watched. Many people are hailing thermography as spectacular for precisely the reasons that make it unacceptable.

Agents searched her bags and stripsearched her, bu t they found no drugs. Ethel Hylton completely documented where she had got the money and was never charged with a crime.

Under civil asset forfeiture, everything you own can be literally taken away even if you are never indicted, tried or convicted of a crime.
How extensive are seizures in America today? Asset forfeiture is a growth industry. Under civil seizure, property, not an individual, is charged with an offence. Even if you are a totally innocent owner, the government can still confiscate your guilty property. If government agents seize your property under civil asset forfeiture, you can forget about being innocent until proven guilty, due process of law, the right to an attorney or even the right to a trial. All of those rights only exist if you are charged with a criminal offence-that is, an offence which could result in your imprisonment.
If you or your property are accused of a civil offence an offence which could not result in your imprisonment , the Supreme Court has ruled that. To get a trial, you have to post a nonrefundable 'bond' of 10 per cent of the value of your property. Money you pay your attorney is also subject to seizure ei ther before or after the trial if the government alleges that those funds are tain ted.

Britain broke diplomatic relations with Libya in after a British policewoman, Yvonne Fletcher, was shot and killed outside the Libyan Embassy in London during an anti-Qaddafi demonstration. The British Government and media immediately concluded that the shots had come from the Libyan Embassy. Now a documentary, shown on Britain's Channel 4, says it could have been US intelligence services that killed Fletcher in order to get Britain to join Washington's campaign against Libya.
The program went to air on British TV on 10th April. The Libyan Foreign Ministry quickly sent an official letter to Britain, asking the government to consider re-establishing diplomatic relations.

The incredible blast wrecked the naval base and heavily damaged the small town of Port Chicago, located 1. Some Ame,. The two ships and the large loading pier were totally annihilated.
Several hundred people were injured, and millions of dollars in property damage was caused by the huge blast. Windows were shattered in towns 20 miles away, and the glare ofthe explosion could be seen in San Francisco, some 35 miles away. It was the worst home-front disaster of World War Officially, the world's [rrst atomic ,test explosion occurred on 16th July at Alamogordo, New Mexico; but the Port Chicago blast may well have been the world's first atomic detonation, whether accidental or not.

The Quirwlt Victory had moored at Port Chicago at about 6. Some men of the Sixth Division, many of whom had only recently arrived at Port Chicago, were busy rigging the ship in preparation for 10ading of ammunition which was due to begin by mjdnight. In addition. The pier was congested with men, equipment, a locomotive, 16 railroad boxcars, and about tons of bombs and projectifes waiting to be loaded.
Mosb of the enlisted men, upon first arriving at Port Chicago, were quite fearful of the explosives they were expected to handle. But, over time, many of the men simply accommodated themselves to the work situation by discounting the risk of an explosion. Most men readily accepted the omcees' assurances th. To some observers it appeared that two explosions, only a few seconds apart, occurred: a first and smaller 'blast was felt; this was followed quickly by a cataclysmic explosion as the E. Bryan went off like one gigantic b'omb, sending a column of fire and! Everyone on the pier and aboard!
Very few intact bodies were recovered. Anothcr miUtary and civilian personnel were injured, including black enlisted men. This single, stunning disaster accounted for almost one-fifth of all black naval casualties during Ithe whole of World War II. Bryan was literally blown to bits. Very linle of its wreckage was ever found. The Quinalt Victory was Mted dear out of the water by the blast, turned around and broken into pieces. The largest piec. There was at least one ton diesel locomotive operating on the pier at the time of the explosion.
Not a single piece of the locomotive car was ever identified: the locomotive simply vanished. In the river stream, several small boats half a mile dis- I' tant from the pier reported being hit by a 30foot wall of water. In an ,interview, one of the men described his experienc-e of the disaster:. Suddenly there were two explosions. The first one knocked me clean off Then the next one came right behind that.
Knocked me back on the other side. Men were screaming, the lights went out and glass was flying all over the place. I got out to the door. Everybody was We were a mile and a half away from the ships. And so the first thing that came to my mind, I said, 'jesus Christ, the japs have hit! But one of the officers was shouting, 'It's the ships! It's the ships! Guys were shouting at the driver from the back of the truck, 'Go on down. What the hell are you staying up here for? Wasn't no railmad. Wasn't no ships.

The driver couldn't go no further. I didn't even see any smoke. The town of Port Chicago Was heavily damaged by the explosion but fortunately none of its Citizens was killed, although many suffered injuries. During the night and early morning, the injured were removed to hospitals and many of the black enlisted men were evacuated to nearby stations, mainly to Camp Shoemaker in Oakland. Others remained at PDft Chicago to clear away debris and search for what could be found of bodies. The search for bodies was grim work. One survivor recalled the experience:. We went back to the dock. Man, it was awful; that was a sight.

The Court heard testimony from survivors andl eyewitnesses to the explosion, other Port Chicago personnel, ordnance experts, inspectors who checked the ships before loading, and others. The question of Captain Kinnc's tonnage-figures blackboard-and the competition it encouragedcame up during thc proceedings.
Kinne attcmpted to justify this as simply an extension of therNavy's procedure of competition in target practice. He contended that it did not negatively impact on safety, and implied that junior officers who said it did, did not know what they were talking about. The Court also heard tes. But the specific cause of the explosion was never officially established by the Court of Inquiry. Anyone in a position to have actually seen what caused the explosion did not live to tell about it. Although there was testimony before the Court about competition in loading, thjs was not listed by the Court or the Judge Advocate as in any way a cause of the explosion although the court Isaw fit to recom.
Thus, the Court of InqUiry in effect cleared the officers-ipcharge of any responsibility for the disaster, and in so far as any human cause was invoked, the burden of blame was laid on the shoulders of the black enlisted men who died in the explosion. After the explosion, many of the surviving black sailors were transferred to nearby Camp Shoemaker where they remained until 3ist July; then the Fourth and Eighth Divisions were transferred to navaF barracks in Vallejo near Mare Island.
During this period, the men were assigned barracks duties but no ship-loading was assigned. Another group, the Second Division, which was also at Camp Shoemaker until 31st July, returned to Port Chicago to help with the cleaning up and rebuilding of the base. All were extremely nervous aud jumpy. Everybody was still nervous. The men's anxiety was probably made worse 'by the fact that they did not know what caused the explQsion. Rumollr and speculation were rife.
Some thought it was caused by an accident, some suspected sabotage, others did not know what to think. Apparently the men were not informed that the Navy was conducting an investigation. Certainly, nO. The men tallked among themselves. They had! Many of the survivors expected to be granted survivors' leaves to visit their families before being rcassigned to regular duties. But such leaves were not granted, creating a major grievance. Even men who had been 'J;lOspitalised with injuries were Qot granted leaves.
The survirYors and new personnel expressed their opposition to returning to loading ammunition, citing the possibility of another explosion. The First confrontation occurred on 9th August.

In early September, 50 men were selected! On 24th October , after only 80 minutes of deliberation by a specially-convened military court, all 50 men were found guilty of mutiny. Ten were sentenced to 15 years in prison, 24 sentenced to 12 years, 11 sentenced to 10 years, and five senten cedi to eight years. All were to be dishonourably discharged from the Navy. After a massive outcry over the next year, in January , 47 of the Port Chicago men were released from prison and 'exiled' for one year overseas before returning to their families.
