Fracking should be allowed to take place in national parks because its visual intrusion is minimal and the environmental risks have been “exaggerated,” according to the outgoing chairman of the UK’s Environment Agency.
Chris Smith, also known as Lord Smith of Finsbury, told the Times that if hydraulic fracturing – or fracking – is properly regulated, then it could be safe and “useful” in minimizing the UK’s reliance on climate polluting coal-fired power stations and imported gas. Smith is scheduled to step down from his post next month.
The controversial process of extracting gas trapped in rocks deep underground has been criticized by environmental campaigners and local residents who don’t want to see the British countryside ruined by fracking, as its impact on the environment and human health is still not completely understood.

(NaturalNews) AstraZeneca has come out making bold claims about their new experimental ovarian cancer drug called olaparib. In clinical trials, the drug company shows that their new drug enables an 83 percent reduction in the risk of ovarian cancer progression.
According to a review by officials from the US Food and Drug Administration, this 83 percent statistic most likely couldn’t be reproduced.
“AstraZeneca has put up some pretty lofty expectations,” said Damien Conover, an analyst at Morningstar. Continue reading →

College girls in India have unveiled anti-rape jeans, footwear and underwear to protect women from the growing menace of rape, which occurs every 22 minutes in the country. Unfortunately, the situation doesn’t seem to be improving.
Sandals that deliver electric shocks and jeans that have an inbuilt SOS button were showcased by college girls in the state of Uttar Pradesh – one of the highest in terms of crime levels.
Two computer science students at a private engineering college in the city of Varanasi, Rijul Pandey and Shalini Yadav, engineered and designed the sandals, which apart from the electric shock, send out an SOS signal to all the victim’s phone contacts.
“We conceived of this idea six months ago. While there are pepper sprays and other such things on the market, we thought of developing safety devices that don’t need to be carried separately. The moment we hit someone with our sandal, it would send messages to friends and family members. It will also give a shock to the criminals and immobilize them for a few seconds. It can be used by any girl,” the creators told The Guardian.
Two other students at the same institute, Diksha Pathak and Anjali Srivastava, developed an electronic tool that can be easily sewn into a pair of jeans.

The EU Ambassador to Israel has warned that a growing number of EU states are dissuading their citizens from doing business with companies registered in Israeli settlements; France, Italy and Spain have already joined the trend.
Ambassador Lars Faaborg-Andersen told a business seminar organized by the Geneva Initiative on Friday that six European nations have already issued warnings to the Israeli government over expanding construction of settlements beyond the Green Line.
EU member states “are losing their patience with concerns not being treated [seriously],” by Israel, Lars Faaborg-Andersen said.
You probably don’t know me, but like you I am one of those .01%ers, a proud and unapologetic capitalist. I have founded, co-founded and funded more than 30 companies across a range of industries—from itsy-bitsy ones like the night club I started in my 20s to giant ones like Amazon.com, for which I was the first nonfamily investor.

Is George Soros turning activist? His $29 billion hedge fund has famously confronted governments. But facing off with a $1 billion United States oil and gas company is novel. The move gives underperforming corporate bosses another scourge to fear.
