a) the individual is involved in an
intense relationship in which
he or she feels they must get
the communication right;
b) the other party is expressing
two orders of messages, and
one denies the other;
c) the ‘victim is unable to comment on
the contradiction, i.e. he or she is
unable to make ‘metacommunicative
statements’ that might help to
resolve the mess. These situations,
endlessly replayed, result in an
individual unable to read accurately
the context of messages, and
unable to communicate effectively
or coherently. In short, he or she
will live in a world of disordered
messages, where active and
appropriate deciphering will be
experienced as dangerous, and
possibly only known, as a nameless,
felt, perpetual angst.

he purchases, known among federal employees as “micropurchases,” are made by some of the thousands of agency employees who are issued taxpayer-funded purchase cards. The purchases, in most cases, remain confidential and are not publicly disclosed by the agencies. A sampling of those purchases, obtained by the I-Team via the Freedom of Information Act, reveals at least one agency used those cards to buy $30,000 in Starbucks Coffee drinks and products in one year without having to disclose or detail the purchases to the public.

he I-Team, using the Freedom of Information Act, received a list of “micropurchases” made by the Dept. of Homeland Security at Starbucks vendors nationwide in 2013. The list includes dozens of transactions, including in Washington, D.C., and Maryland. Several of the purchases were made at an Alameda, California, Starbucks vendor and cost more than $2,400 each, just below the $3,000 threshold for which purchases need not be publicly disclosed. After reviewing the I-Team’s findings, Rep. John Mica (R-FL), chair of a U.S House Oversight subcommittee said, “When you have $10,000 being spent at one Starbucks by DHS employees in one city in six months, someone is abusing the purchasing permission that we have given them."


On Capitol Hill, Democrats have seen a "raised tempo" in communications from the White House and other federal officials since Klain took the reins, said Diana DeGette, a senior Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce committee.

he operatives are key members of Khorasan Group, the al Qaeda affiliate entrenched in Syria that the United States has declared poses a great risk to American national security. One official with direct knowledge of the latest U.S. assessment said the working assumption now is that both Muhsin al-Fadhli, the leader of the group, and David Drugeon, a French jihadist and key member, who is believed to be a skilled bomb-maker, are alive. The United States does not know with certainty if they are injured.
An intelligence analyst with knowledge of the intelligence tells CNN "its 99.5% certain" they are alive.

EBOLA RACISM: ‘No White People Have Died’


we would have to be stocked up first not to notice

Beer In Vino Veritas Real French Sparkly Yeah, but how old am I? Lets take a coffee break

I would rather endure a quarantine than accidently transmit something to a loved one or acquaintance

But as Engelhardt demonstrates clearly, even though Washington has created chaos worldwide by its thoughtless interventions, nothing in the status quo actually constitutes a threat to our nation, suggesting a massive military buildup to crush an enemy that does not really exist. Putting it all together, the cost of our secret government constitutes the greatest rip off in the history of the world.

Now, there are beds and nurses and gloves and moon suits in Liberia. Not enough, and not everywhere in the country yet, to be sure. There are still people dying, but the numbers at the moment blessedly appear to be dropping off. There are also more and more people walking out of Ebola wards as survivors.

Ebola epidemic

Ebola’s fatality rate is around 20%; however, it can rise to 90% when the patient can not be properly rehydrated and transfused, which is generally the case in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. Hence the role played by large NGOs such as Doctors Without Borders or states such as Cuba.
