It is never safe to look directly at the sun's rays - even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times if you want to face the sun, or use an alternate indirect method. This also applies during a total eclipse up until the time when the sun is completely and totally blocked. During the short time when the moon completely obscures the sun - known as the period of totality - it is safe to look directly at the star, but it's crucial that you know when to take off and put back on your glasses.

Over the course of 100 minutes, 14 states across the United States will experience more than two minutes of darkness in the middle of the day. Additionally, a partial eclipse will be viewable across all of North America. The eclipse will provide a unique opportunity to study the sun, Earth, moon and their interaction because of the eclipse’s long path over land coast to coast. Scientists will be able to take ground-based and airborne observations over a period of an hour and a half to complement the wealth of data and images provided by space assets.

(Video) Bacteria-Filled Balloons to be Released by NASA During the Solar Eclipse Event

Published on Aug 20, 2017

Steps forward in the search for life beyond Earth can be as simple as sending a balloon into the sky. In one of the most unique and extensive eclipse observation campaigns ever attempted, NASA is collaborating with student teams across the U.S. to do just that.

A larger initiative, NASA's Eclipse Balloon Project, led by Angela Des Jardins of Montana State University, is sending more than 50 high-altitude balloons launched by student teams across the U.S. to livestream aerial footage of the Aug. 21 total solar eclipse from the edge of space to NASA’s website.

105 Year Old Reveals the Secret Behind Living a Long Life

Source: Truth Theory | by Jess Murray

Everyone wants to know the secret to a long and happy life, without having to constantly worry about being cautious over every aspect of actually living it. Dr. Shigeaki Hinohara, who lived until he was 105, believed that the secret lies in a few simple and basic principles, one of which includes retiring later.

Dr Shigeaki Hinohara built the foundations of Japanese medicine and played a hand in making Japan the world leader in longevity. As a physician, chairman emeritus of St. Luke's International University, and honorary president of St. Luke's International Hospital, he was qualified in announcing his guidelines of living a long and healthy life.

In an interview with Japan Times journalist Judit Kawaguchi, he explained what he believed to be basic principles to living a long and healthy life. One of these included retiring much later than age 65. He explained in the interview that the retirement age in Japan was 65 at a time when the average life expectancy was just 68. This led him to believe that now that people are generally living much longer, with the life expectancy in Japan now being 84 years, people should be retiring at a much later age.

Before Hinohara died, just last month on July 18 in Tokyo, he continued to treat patients whilst working 18 hour days at the age of 105. Kawaguchi, who considered Hinohara her mentor, told the BBC, "He believed that life is all about contribution, so he had this incredible drive to help people, to wake up early in the morning and do something wonderful for other people. This is what was driving him and what kept him living. He always had today's goals, tomorrow's, and the next five years."

Hinohara's other key guidelines for living well included:

Worry less about eating well or getting more sleep, and have fun. "We all remember how as children, when we were having fun, we often forgot to eat or sleep. I believe that we can keep that attitude as adults, too. It's best not to tire the body with too many rules such as lunchtime and bedtime."

Don't blindly follow what your doctor says. "When a doctor recommends you take a test or have some surgery, ask whether the doctor would suggest that his or her spouse or children go through such a procedure. Contrary to popular belief, doctors can't cure everyone. So why cause unnecessary pain with surgery? I think music and animal therapy can help more than most doctors imagine."

If you want to live long, don't be overweight. "For breakfast I drink coffee, a glass of milk, and some orange juice with a tablespoon of olive oil in it. Olive oil is great for the arteries and keeps my skin healthy. Lunch is milk and a few cookies, or nothing when I am too busy to eat. I never get hungry because I focus on my work. Dinner is veggies, a bit of fish and rice, and, twice a week, 100 grams of lean meat."

Always take the stairs and carry your own belongings. "I take two stairs at a time, to get my muscles moving."

To conquer pain, have fun. "Pain is mysterious, and having fun is the best way to forget it. If a child has a toothache, and you start playing a game together, he or she immediately forgets the pain. Hospitals must cater to the basic need of patients: We all want to have fun. At St. Luke's we have music and animal therapies, and art classes."

Never Forget the Nukes North Korea is Threatening to use on America Came from America

Source: The Free Thought Project | by Matt Agorist

As the US beats the war drums to attack North Korea, most Americans have no idea the US is responsible for the dictatorship's nuclear arsenal.

For more than a decade, North Korea has been unsuccessfully attempting to prove its military might to the world through a series of failed missile launches, nuclear proliferation, and threats to anyone who attempts to come near their border. And for more than half a century, the US has enabled and funded it. If North Korea does ever launch a nuke, it will be because the US government and its assets helped to put it in their hands.

In spite of threatening nuclear war on the world, however, most countries have never acted on their threats. However, the Trump administration appears to want to change that.

"North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States," Trump said at an event at his Bedminster, N.J., golf club on Tuesday. "They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen." The president then repeated that North Korea "will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before" if it continued with this behavior.

Almost immediately after Trump drew this proverbial line in the sand, North Korea crossed it. The insane dictatorship that is Kim Jong-un's regime, said late on Tuesday that it may strike Guam.

Just hours before Trump threatened fire and fury, one of his top advisors, Sevastian Gorka, downplayed the North Korean threat calling it "blackmail."

"This is blatant blackmail," he said. "Blackmail of the western community. We don't give in to blackmail." He added that North Korean tough talk was mostly "bluster."

"We would like people to understand, this is a Lilliputian flea," Gorka argued. "North Korea is a Stalinist regime, but it can't even feed its own people."

In fact, the only thing that makes North Korea a threat is their nuclear capability — made possible by the Clinton and Bush administrations.

These two administrations played key roles in helping the late Kim Jong-Il develop North Korea's nuclear prowess from the mid 1990's onward.

Former US Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld was on the board of technology giant ABB when it won a deal to supply North Korea with two nuclear power plants.

According to the 2003 report from SWI, the Swiss-based ABB told swissinfo that Rumsfeld was involved with the company in early 2000, when it netted a $200 million (SFr270million) contract with Pyongyang.

The ABB contract was to deliver equipment and services for two nuclear power stations at Kumho, on North Korea's east coast.

However, Rumsfeld was simply taking the baton from the Clinton administration, who, in 1994, agreed to begin replacing North Korea's domestically built nuclear reactors with light water reactors.

Henry Sokolski, head of the Non-proliferation Policy Education Center in Washington, noted at the time that "LWRs could be used to produce dozens of bombs' worth of weapons-grade plutonium in both North Korea and Iran. This is true of all LWRs — a depressing fact U.S. policymakers have managed to block out."

"These reactors are like all reactors, they have the potential to make weapons. So you might end up supplying the worst nuclear violator with the means to acquire the very weapons we're trying to prevent it acquiring," said Sokolski.

American taxpayers then financed the construction of these nuclear reactors — to the tune of $95 million — which were used to build weapons to threaten their very lives. Despite Korea being caught building the nukeswith US taxpayer funds, Bush upped his ante in 2003 and sent even more money to the dictatorship.

Although this program was supposedly halted years later, the CIA stepped in to help North Korea continue making nukes.

In 2004, Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan — CIA asset and international arms smuggler — and the father of Pakistan's atom bomb program, admitted sharing nuclear technology via a worldwide smuggling network that included facilities in Malaysia which manufactured key parts for centrifuges.

Khan's collaborator B.S.A. Tahir ran a front company out of Dubai that shipped centrifuge components to North Korea.

As Truth-Out reported at the time:

Ruud Lubbers, a former Dutch prime minister, revealed in August 2005 that the Netherlands (where Khan started his nuclear career) was prepared to arrest him 30 years before. The authorities came close to arresting Khan twice, first in 1975 and later in 1986, but the CIA requested that they let him act freely.

Lubbers said that, while he was prime minister in 1983, Dutch authorities could have reopened the case. Once again, they did not do so because of US pressure. "The man was followed for almost ten years and obviously he was a serious problem. But again I was told that the secret services could handle it more effectively," Lubbers said. "The Hague did not have the final say in the matter. Washington did."

As we are learning now, Sokolski's prophecy came true and a psychotic dictator has a small nuclear arsenal at his disposal. And, it is all thanks to the US government, the CIA, and your tax dollars.

As the US beats the war drums to attack North Korea, wouldn't most Americans like to know where North Korea's threat comes from? Please share this article to show your friends and family how idiotic American foreign policy is.

31 Pictures Shows Yemen is Literally Hell on Earth Right Now

Source: Truth Theory | by Amanda Froelich

While the world remains captivated by the soap opera which is the United States, all hell is breaking loose in Yemen. In fact, it has been for the past year, yet this reality has been largely blocked out by Western media.

The Arab world's poorest country has been wracked by a bloody war between supporters of Yemen's internationally recognized government and Houthi rebels. As a result of the conflict, thousands upon thousands have been killed, maimed or displaced in the Middle Eastern nation. Nearly 2,000 Yemenis have died from cholera, and close to 370,000 have contracted it. Sadly, that figure is expected to increase to 600,000.

Many foreign countries are involved in the war. In 2015, Saudi Arabia formed a coalition of Arab states to defeat the Houthis, and that coalition now includes Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Morocco, Jordan, Sudan, Qatar and Senegal. The United States is also largely responsible for the destruction taking place in Yemen, as it regularly launches air strikes on al-Qaeda and Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, or ISIS) targets in the country. Along with France and the United Kingdom, the US has supplied the Saudi-led coalition with weapons and intelligence. There are also reports of American troops being deployed to the area.

Unfortunately for the people of Yemen, aid organizations are having major difficulties delivering food, medicine and other essentials caught in the conflict. Al Jazeera reports that the Houthi siege of parts of the city of Taiz has prevented critical medical supplies from arriving. Additionally, fighting in Aden has made it next-to-impossible for the World Food Programme to deliver aid there.

By raising awareness about the Yemeni people's plight, you may help the Western world care about this atrocity and do something to change it. Following are 30 photos proving Yemen is literally hell on Earth right now:

Steve Bannon Fired as White House’s Chief Strategist

Source: Truth Theory | by Amanda Froelich

It's official: Steve Bannon has joined the growing list of employees fired by the White House under the Trump administration. On Friday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that Bannon exited his position of White House Chief Strategist. "White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve's last day," said Sanders in a statement. "We are grateful for his service and wish him the best."

Bannon is a right-wing nationalist and former head of BBC reports that he played an integral role in shaping the "America First" message of President Trump's election campaign. However, Bannon's habit of taking credit and competing for influence in the West Wing against more moderate factions — including members of the Trump family, is what ultimately resulted in his termination. For instance, after Bannon was quoted in an interview with the American Prospect contradicting President Trump on North Korea and asserting that he, himself was able to make personnel changes at the State Department, Trump was reportedly furious.

According to sources, Bannon was actually fired two weeks ago and was given the option to resign, but eventually was forced out. The timing is certainly auspicious, considering critics of Bannon's demanded so-called nationalists working in the West Wing be fired after a white supremacy protest took place in Charlottesville, Virginia (resulting in one death). Reportedly, the group of hard-right populists in the White House is led by Mr. Bannon. With his termination, this means one of the White House's most controversial staffers (perceived by many to be the driving force behind Trump's "nationalist" ideology) will no longer be at the center of the Trump universe.

Bannon's time in the White House was marked with controversy, and that he frequently butted heads with other key players — including senior adviser Jared Kushner, chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and other moderate members of the President's administratio. "Steve was never a team player," a senior administration official told the press when explaining that Bannon had a reputation of "bad mouthing" others to reporters.

During his stint with the Trump administration, Bannon pushed a hardline trade agenda — specifically attempting to rebalance the trade relationship between the US and China. CNN reports, "The fiery chief strategist also led the charge against proposals by national security officials to deepen US military involvement in Afghanistan, feuding vocally during meetings of the National Security Council with national security adviser H.R. McMaster and working behind the scenes to water down hawkish proposals for troop increases and a longer-term US military commitment."

Showing How Low Society has Sunk -- Train Announcement Discouraging People to Feed the Homeless

Source: Truth Theory | by Luke Miller

Yesterday I jumped on a train going in the wrong direction, it was a little annoying as I was in a rush, but ended up revealing something to me I would not have otherwise seen. As I jumped off the train at Aldergate East station which is based in London, an eerie female voice announced "Begging in this station is illegal, customers are reminded not to encourage this behaviour"

This is an actual announcement made in a train station in what is supposed to be a democratic society. What has this place become, when vulnerable people are looked at as less than human. It's has become big brother, with this loud voice reminding us not to do the right thing.

What ever happened to compassion and loving. Some people mess up in life or get abused or get lost on the road or get abandoned at a young age. Some people have everything and fall victim to a scam which puts them out on the street. Some people become sick, which stops them from being able to work or even worse in the states it's the health care costs that put the people out on the streets.

The only difference between any of us is our circumstances, which have lead us to where we are now.

How about you just give the poor person some change or food and go on with your day, or even better talk to them and realise they are human. At the very least should we not have the right to decide if we want to give a person change, food or a hug!

Yes they could be a drug addict and anything you give them could go towards this and of course "some" people in this position could do better. But would you switch with them? The justification I hear from some people to avoid doing the right thing is laughable. Like the people begging are privileged.

This lead to the point- why does this situation exists in the first place? Property is inherited and hoarded by a very small group of extremely wealthy individuals who create the artificial construct that is rich and poor. Maybe we could do one better than giving a person change, maybe we could stop the monarchy and other wealthy parasitic beings hoarding all the assets and resources. Maybe we could create a fair society? Has any political leader in the UK or US even tried?

This is not meant to be a guilt trip, but maybe some of us can look at our situation and realise how privileged we are to have a choice to gift something should we feel too. Maybe next time we see someone, we could ask them their name and see that behind their flaws they are actually a human being.

Don't be brainwashed by announcements like this! We should never tolerate this if we want equality. If you see someone in need do the right thing!
