African lion
Hi Liz,

A threatened lion in Tanzania was gunned down for sport — and now the killer will be bringing the body home to hang on his wall.

This is the first trophy-import permit for a Tanzanian lion issued since these majestic cats were protected under the Endangered Species Act. And it could kick the door wide open for elephants, lions and more species to be shot in Tanzania so their bodies can be dragged back to the States.

We must put an end to this kind of behavior before it spreads. Please give now to support our fight to save lions and other endangered species.

Despite Trump calling trophy hunting a "horror show," his administration has repeatedly gone out of its way to clear the path for overseas slaughter of threatened species.

First the U.S. Department of the Interior reversed a ban on elephant-trophy imports from Zimbabwe. Then it created a council riddled with conflicts of interest and packed with Safari Club members and NRA bigwigs to "advise" on trophy-hunting decisions.

And now we're seeing the results: the first permit for a Tanzanian lion being issued to a Florida-based hunter. It's no coincidence this lion killer's legal representative sits on Interior's sham, pro-trophy-hunting council.

This permit bodes ill for wildlife in Tanzania, home to roughly 40 percent of Africa's lions and up to half of the elephants in eastern Africa. The administration could greenlight more lion, and maybe even elephant, trophy imports.

Trophy hunting of the world's threatened species must be stopped.

We're in the courts fighting the administration's pro-trophy agenda. And we're rallying our members to push Congress to use its legislative powers to abolish the pro-trophy hunting council and force these import decisions into the public eye.

It's past time to put an end to the fat-cat privilege of gunning down the Earth's magnificent, rare wildlife for the sake of an ego boost.

Please give now to support our fight to stop trophy-hunt imports.

For the wild,

Los Angeles: Animals in great need

 
Kovu A1874943
Forwarding a message I just opened 10/13/19. I used to blog such emails at a dedicated blog called lizardmarsh but stopped permanently over a year ago. This is just a one-time relapse I am having. Gorgeous Kovu A1874943 is still showing in Petharbor today 10/13 as available. He appears in some videos on Youtube. Please may he live long and happily. The shelter is the contact (Veronica Perry is the main contact at the shelter where Kovu is impounded).

This just in.  Again, I am not the originator of the message and cannot answer any questions, especially as I do not even live in this state. Please do crosspost. The poster writes:
 
        I am still involved with animal rescue.  I did want to bring to your attention, especially for those of you in California or in neighboring states, that there there is an animal crisis in Los Angeles.  Although there are lots of homeless people and challenges for people in the Los Angeles area, the animals there are suffering greatly, and perhaps most of all.  This ! year, people are relinquishing their pets to the local pound in droves, and these government shelters are euthanizing healthy pets sometimes hourly.

        For example, At the East Valley Animal Services Center,  located at
 14409 Vanowen St., Van Nuys, CA 91405      (888) 452-7381    and 818-756-9323
Hours: Tuesday-Saturday: 8 am-5 pm; Sunday: 11 am-5 pm; Monday and Holidays: Closed
    they are almost beyond capacity.

   There are pets of all kinds available for adoption.  They have many types of large dogs for example, many of them purebred.  This week alone there are more than three purebred German Shepherd dogs.  The fee to adopt is modest.  Most of these dogs will never be adopted, as these are tough times for Los Angeles and gas is $5. gallon, and housing is quite ex! pensive and often does not allow larger dogs.

      It IS possible to adopt one of these dogs from the shelter, and to pay to have the dog brought to you in another part of the country, often for a few hundred dollars. You would have to discuss this with the excellent staff there.  For some people this is possible, and it will save the life of a wonderful dog.

      These are some of the deserving dogs from there.  I am told that the bewildered dogs aren't often adopted despite the fact that they would likely do really well in a loving home.

and there are hundreds of others of every description, all of them neutered or spayed.

      
        I pray that some of you can responsibly adopt some of these wonderful creatures.


          Thank you all for listening.   I think of you all often and hope that all of you are doing well and applying all of that knowledge you have with regard to preparedness.


         With fond wishes,

Everywhere: LED lights are a dramatically underrated source of #EMFs...

LED light pollution can harm humans as described herebelow in The EMF Guy's post. I use blue light blockers which are a definite comfort. LED lights also impact marine mammals, birds and other critters. A National Geographic article describes massive environmental obstacles for modern bird populations. LED removal would be one small step mankind could take to cease one type of toxic barrage on innocents.

"What the heck is that?" I told Gen one evening a few weeks ago, pointing at something outside our window.
I first thought that the workers outside our condo (they've been there for years, we're in Montreal after all!!!) had installed some kind of industrial-strength lighting system to be able to do an additional shift during the night. The light was blinding and filling up the entire neighborhood, just like floodlights during late-night football games do.
But then I realized the scary truth -- this was no "temporary" lighting system...
The city had just installed brand new EXTREME SUPREME-POWER SUPER-WHITE LED streetlights. (a LOT of citizens and scientists have already complained about them, and I'll take further steps to try and have them removed or changed...) (1)
The reality is that light pollution is a growing problem, and even if I take great care in keeping only warm-colored incandescent bulbs inside my home in the evening... I'm still bombarded with very disruptive light frequencies coming from the outside.
The worst type of light for human beings (and all living things) is an excess in blue light. In a 2016 interview with the Montreal Gazette, Martin Aubé, an astrophysics professor and researcher at CÉGEP de Sherbrooke explained:
"We aren't against all LEDs [...] — only against the white ones, because they contain that bluish colour. White LEDs come in a range of whites — warm, cool, bright — but all of them contain the blue that increases light pollution and has been linked to health issues.
Using white LED lights increases light pollution by three times. [...] If it continues in this direction, it is crystal clear that not only we won't see the starry sky, but our health and ecosystem will pay the price. [emphasis mine]"
How does blue light impact your health, especially at night? The main way is by disrupting your body's ability to produce melatonin, a key sleep hormone, but also a key cancer-fighting antioxidant.
And now you may start to understand why I look like THIS when I do interviews in the evening:

Wearing orange glasses is not the be all end all of eliminating blue light (that will be the topic of an entire article and podcast in the near future), but it's a great step in the right direction.
As soon as the sun goes down, I switch my normal glasses with these effective & stylish orange glasses from a company called "Ra Optics".
The creator of Ra Optics, Matt Maruca, is an incredible guy. At just 18 years old, Matt was already an expert in biohacking and health optimization. (2)
Matt has hooked me up with a custom pair of his "Hershel" model. I'm extremely satisfied with this new pair of blue blockers because it contains my prescription, so I don't have to mess around with contacts all the time.

Matt has generously offered my audience (that's you!) a solid coupon code. Just use "NICK" at checkout and you'll get 10% off!
Bonus points: Ra Optics frames are made out of plastic, not metal. A few studies have shown that metal-framed glasses can in fact act as an antenna and effectively increase your EMF exposure... so better err on the safe side.
Will you join the blue blockers nation? (trying to make it seem like a normal thing to wear these at night, haha!)
