Some delegated the task:
It is no secret that Nazis, with their modern, “perverted science,” as Churchill phrased it, feature prominently in conspiracy theory origins. It is also no secret that Josef Mengele devised some awesomely grotesque, despicable experiments carried out on Jewish guinea pigs. He repeatedly broke children’s limbs in the same place to see how long it would take before the bone simply would not heal. He performed irradiation of victims, then vivisections without anesthesia to study organ damage. He also liked to harm identical twins, to study whether one felt the other’s pain.
This year, China will further enhance international cooperation in fighting corruption, said a statement adopted at the second plenary session of the 19th CPC Central Commission for Discipline Inspection.
Meanwhile, in recent months mainland investors have been rapidly owning equity trading accounts and putting money into the stock market. The Shanghai Composite has become the region's best performing index, rising nearly 45 per cent year to date.
Hurun founder Rupert Hoogewerf said Yao represented a new wave of wealthy Chinese, those whose money came from playing the financial markets as opposed to more traditional routes like trade or manufacturing.
Mentioned in detail on a previous list, the Dulce Base is held by conspiracy theorists to be a secret underground medical research facility operated in part by aliens, whom the government allows to do what they want in exchange for advanced technology. Their research involves creating animal hybrids, like the minotaur and the centaur, by sewing dead animal carcasses together and then resurrecting them.
This subset of the theory contends that the aliens are also manufacturing human zombies, like Frankenstein’s monster, and that the government is, unbeknownst to the aliens, researching methods for growing either bacteria or a virus that can infect ordinary living humans and turn them into “the walking dead,” as it were. The infectious agent ties in with several other entries on this list.
This is no joke. In 1994, the Air Force, possibly in conjunction with the CIA, spent $100,000 of taxpayer money researching the feasibility of using homosexuality as a weapon. Their concept was to aerosol female sex pheromones over an enemy army, which might cause the soldiers to lose control of their libidos and have sex with each other. The U. S. military would then be able to overrun them more easily.
When this hit the Internet, the Air Force was ridiculed, but before you join in the banter – consider the principle behind this fact. Theorists are of the opinion that this idiotic “gay bomb” proposal was desperately idiotic, as in meant to distract the public from even more taxes funding some other top-secret research program. If the U. S. military is willing to investigate the psychoactive effects of human sex pheromones, it is no longer a giant leap to the investigation of infectious, psychoactive bacteria or viruses designed to kill every part of a person except the cerebellar functions. And if word of this investigation leaked, the Air Force could always act the part of the idiots they would once again appear to be.
In the same vein as #8, theorists strongly contend that rabies is the virus whose effects on the central nervous system most closely match the popular concept of the zombie. In fact, 97% of the world’s human rabies infections occur via dog bites. It has been all but eradicated in most countries with modern medicine. But the government has stockpiled every disease that has ever existed in varying amounts. This is defended as studying disease mutations to prepare for the worst.
“A hiring manager was reading the wrong person’s resume.”

The two gunmen who slaughtered 12 people at satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo,Cherif Kouachi and his brother Said, were likely among those who had left the country to "to be trained to kill and to sow terror".
Say this about Bank of America chief Brian Moynihan: He certainly knows how to talk the talk. In his letter to shareholders, Moynihan went out of his way to thank U.S. taxpayers for making $45 billion in TARP funds available. He also described how he is working closely with 'policy leaders' on financial reform. Whether he can walk the walk - i.e., turn around BofA's fortunes - is another matter. While the company did repay its TARP loan in December, it is still sitting on billions of dollars of vulnerable residential and commercial mortgage debt - one reason the company spent 8,000 words discussing risk in its annual report.
If it were possible to keep such a person alive, his brain damage would be irreversible and almost total. Only the cerebellum would remain unscathed. If the cerebellum is inflamed, the person dies. Thus, theorists claim, the very existence of stockpiles of this virus proves the government’s intent to weaponize it, and the result can only be the complete “zombification” of human beings.
This is an ancillary theory to the imminent outbreak of the zombie virus. The government’s official explanation for the recall of all American military personnel from hostile countries is the de facto end of war on terrorism. “We got Bin Laden,” they say. “Why stay any longer? The war’s over. We win.”
Rio - home to the 2016 Olympics and a host city for the 2014 football World Cup - beat Greece as the most searched-for destination.
Logan's claws are slow on the draw and his self-healing powers are on the fritz, but he's committed to caring for his mentor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart, so good you want to applaud). It's not easy watching Professor X suffer seizures that rattle his telepathic brain. Make no mistake, Logan earns its tears. If Jackman and Stewart are serious about this being their mutual X-Men swan song, they could not have crafted a more heartfelt valedictory.
Even for an industry that generally views history as a grab bag of potential inspiration to be dipped into and mixed and matched at will, this has been extreme.

But the change in Wall Street’s — and Silicon Valley’s — appreciation of Mr Cook is down to more than just the 70m iPhones Apple is expected to sell this quarter or the $42bn in sales generated in the previous.
Earlier this year, the Social Security Administration touched off a media firestorm when they were discovered to be buying well over 200,000 rounds of hollow-point and hydra-shok pistol ammunition in a single purchase. The SSA has its own, self-governed police force, paid to protect the SSA offices and personnel. Millions of citizens, especially those over 65 years old, demanded to know why. It appeared that the SSA was preparing for a major incident of self-defense, but their official explanation was that their police force required ammunition to practice at gun ranges, that the order had nothing to do with anticipating any impending disaster.
As impressive as those saving gains might look now, they could easily be swallowed as rising rates of illness place a greater burden on society.
China’s commercial banks are the control centre of the financial system and supply almost 70% of the financing that feeds the real economy.
UK schools account for more than a third of all graduates from the top 50 pre-experience programmes and not only attracted nearly half of all female students but also almost half of all international students. Indeed, 94 per cent of students enrolled in a UK MiF pre-experience programme in 2014 were from overseas. About 85 per cent of these students were from outside the European Economic Area, including 55 per cent of the overall number from mainland China.
Conspiracy theorists, of course, make the next giant leap, claiming that emails were leaked to the SSA from another department of the government concerning an imminent danger of civil unrest. This will be precipitated by the collapse of the nation’s infrastructure due to a compromise in the security of a military research program on infectious diseases classified above top-secret. It is understood that many departments of the government are making such preparations and that the SSA is the only one that has been caught doing so.
The most well known type of this viral disease is nicknamed “Mad Cow Disease.” There are thousands of strains of encephalopathy, and many of them can be transmitted to humans. Humans are very rarely infected – about 1 in a million per year – but the disease is 100% fatal and there is no known cure, vaccine, or treatment. This is where conspiracy theorists shout, “Military value.”
'My first duty, my first responsibility was to be true to the original feel of the book, to be true to Ian Fleming: his creation, his world and his ideas.
Among the major U.S. airlines, US Airways had the best holiday on-time performance, coming in fifth with 15.57 percent of its flights arriving late during Thanksgiving and Christmas. Meanwhile, American Airlines, with which US Airways plans to merge, was the fourth worst, with 19.7 percent of flights arriving late, according to FlightAware.
Over the past 10 years, the value of the top 100 brands has more than doubled — increasing by 133 per cent. That value (see box on page 3 for methodology) is calculated in terms of financial measures such as revenues and profitability combined with surveys of how consumers view brands.

Yan Pu, head of portfolio review in Asia at Vanguard, suspects the Asian product mix may be holding things back. For example, Asian providers offer plenty of equity ETFs but very few fixed income products. In the US, she notes, fixed income ETFs are growing rapidly.
Stem-cell research is a great idea. In a nutshell, stem cells can divide into any specialized cells and can automatically propagate more cells. Thus, they could, in theory, be used to cure incurable diseases, such as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, cerebral palsy, maybe even HIV; and most famously, they can be used to regrow nerve tissue, enabling quadriplegics to walk again. The latter is a reality since 2003, when a simple injection healed a Korean paraplegic; within 3 weeks, she was standing and walking for the first time in 19 years.

Days after her death, Ross’ mother, Alicia Jesquith, told reporters she needed answers for the sudden death of her daughter, described by friends and family as a vibrant, ambitious young girl who lit up the room.
If stem cells are injected into one, they can assume the form and operations of neurons, most importantly those of the cerebellum, which controls all involuntary functions of the body. Only the centers for walking and balance would be revived, enabling brain life while providing only a single effective target; such a resurrected corpse could be shot in the heart and keep attacking. And if stem cells can be used to cure incurable diseases, theorists maintain that they can just as easily be used to create infectious diseases.
Here is a true story of a zombie, Clairvius Narcisse. He was born in Haiti in 1922. Details of his death or current whereabouts are not widely known, but on 2 May 1962, he was found unresponsive in his home and presumed dead, buried, but exhumed by unknown parties as punishment for breaking a Haitian code of honor.
The EU’s Americas gambits
For over two decades I have been writing about the rise of Asia and the dynamic driving it. There is an extraordinary consensus among east Asian leaders that Asia needs to use this window of opportunity to focus on economic development and growth. War is the biggest obstacle to development. If Asians were truly stupid, they would engage in such wars and derail their enormous development promise. Most Asian leaders, barring North Korea, understand well the dangers of war. Hence, while there will be tensions and rivalries in the region, there will be no wars in the region, in 2014 or in 2015. As 2015 unfolds, I would like to encourage all western pundits to understand the underlying Asian dynamic on its own terms, and not on the basis of western preconceptions.
Atlas Wearables founder Peter Li says battery technology and user retention are two more obstacles facing the wearables market. Some use cases require significant improvements to battery technology for a compelling experience, he says, and there’s always a balance to be struck between wear time between charges and processing power and features.
Conspiracy theorists take this a step further, claiming that the government thought that these toxins in combination with jimson weed would be a great idea for a weapon, went on to fully develop such a weapon, and stockpiled huge reserves of it for the purpose of biological warfare.
On 26 May 2012, Rudy Eugene, a 31-year-old high school graduate with entrepreneurial ambitions, attacked Ronald Edward Poppo, a 65-year-old homeless man, at random on an on-ramp of MacArthur Causeway, under an elevated train. Eugene was seen by hundreds of witnesses and security cameras crossing the bridge, west to east, in his car, where at the east end, it broke down. He began walking back across the bridge around 12:00 PM, taking 2 hours to walk the 3-mile span. The attack began at just before 2:00 PM.
Those concerns are casting a heavy shadow over a two-day meeting of G20 central bank governors and finance ministers due to start tomorrow. The International Monetary Fund this week already warned that it was poised to downgrade its forecast for global growth this year, saying the leading economies needed to do more to boost growth.

Obama's victory in the hotly contested swing state of Ohio - as projected by TV networks - put him over the top in the fight for the 270 electoral votes needed to clinch the White House and ended Romney's hopes of pulling off a string of swing-state upsets。
Late last year, the World Health Organization declared that Zika virus was no longer a global emergency. But the disease’s effects on babies who may live for decades are only beginning to be understood. In northeastern Brazil, where links between the virus and birth defects like microcephaly were first detected, families struggle to give the best lives possible to stricken babies. Researchers hope to find clues about the virus’s effects on the fetus by studying pairs of twins in Brazil in which one was born with birth defects and the other was not.
Meanwhile, figures such as Wang Jianlin, China’s richest man, have raised concerns about Chinese state-owned enterprises’ investments in Europe, arguing that they lack international management standards.

“We need to do what the mayor wants everybody to do, and that is build more housing,” said Steven Spinola, the president of the Real Estate Board of New York. However, “if the numbers don’t work, if the rent that is coming in is less than the cost of maintaining the building, then you are not going to do it.”
