Drugs price panic.... dying for lack of money to buy the drug for cancer, for MS.... a sad story Bronx dudes. Really is a shame to kill people because of greed and Malthusian economics.

Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, analyzed satellite and direct ocean temperature data from 2005 to 2013 and found the ocean abyss below 1.24 miles (1,995 meters) has not warmed measurably. Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself.
"The sea level is still rising," Willis noted. "We're just trying to understand the nitty-gritty details."
In the 21st century, greenhouse gases have continued to accumulate in the atmosphere, just as they did in the 20th century, but global average surface air temperatures have stopped rising in tandem with the gases. The temperature of the top half of the world's oceans -- above the 1.24-mile mark -- is still climbing, but not fast enough to account for the stalled air temperatures.
Many processes on land, air and sea have been invoked to explain what is happening to the "missing" heat. One of the most prominent ideas is that the bottom half of the ocean is taking up the slack, but supporting evidence is slim. This latest study is the first to test the idea using satellite observations, as well as direct temperature measurements of the upper ocean. Scientists have been taking the temperature of the top half of the ocean directly since 2005, using a network of 3,000 floating temperature probes called the Argo array.
"The deep parts of the ocean are harder to measure," said JPL's William Llovel, lead author of the study published Sunday in the journal Nature Climate Change. "The combination of satellite and direct temperature data gives us a glimpse of how much sea level rise is due to deep warming. The answer is -- not much."
The study took advantage of the fact that water expands as it gets warmer. The sea level is rising because of this expansion and the water added by glacier and ice sheet melt.
To arrive at their conclusion, the JPL scientists did a straightforward subtraction calculation, using data for 2005-2013 from the Argo buoys, NASA's Jason-1 and Jason-2 satellites, and the agency’s Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) satellites. From the total amount of sea level rise, they subtracted the amount of rise from the expansion in the upper ocean, and the amount of rise that came from added meltwater. The remainder represented the amount of sea level rise caused by warming in the deep ocean.
The remainder was essentially zero. Deep ocean warming contributed virtually nothing to sea level rise during this period.
Coauthor Felix Landerer of JPL noted that during the same period warming in the top half of the ocean continued unabated, an unequivocal sign that our planet is heating up. Some recent studies reporting deep-ocean warming were, in fact, referring to the warming in the upper half of the ocean but below the topmost layer, which ends about 0.4 mile (700 meters) down.
Landerer also is a coauthor of another paper in the same journal issue on 1970-2005 ocean warming in the Southern Hemisphere. Before Argo floats were deployed, temperature measurements in the Southern Ocean were spotty, at best. Using satellite measurements and climate simulations of sea level changes around the world, the new study found the global ocean absorbed far more heat in those 35 years than previously thought -- a whopping 24 to 58 percent more than early estimates.
Both papers result from the work of the newly formed NASA Sea Level Change Team, an interdisciplinary group tasked with using NASA satellite data to improve the accuracy and scale of current and future estimates of sea level change. The Southern Hemisphere paper was led by three scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California.
NASA monitors Earth's vital signs from land, air and space with a fleet of satellites and ambitious airborne and ground-based observation campaigns. NASA develops new ways to observe and study Earth's interconnected natural systems with long-term data records and computer analysis tools to better see how our planet is changing. The agency shares this unique knowledge with the global community and works with institutions in the United States and around the world that contribute to understanding and protecting our home planet.

Shout out to tomorrows all
Day Bronx Boxers and Music event tomorrow, starting at 1 pm at the Bronx Music Heritage Center (BMHC) at 1303 Louis Nine Blvd, by Freeman St 2 and 5 subway station.
Meanwhile, note the whispers of the military revolt against Obama.

Credit is coming from the Brics nations. That is how China is changing the world. That is why Russia is not isolated despite the sanctions from the West. Get in on the groove for credit and development. China is not operating on the basis of geopolitics.

The aim of the socalled ISIS war is to kill Assad and destroy the nation of Syria. ISIS does exist but it is puffed up by aid from Turkey and Saudi Arabia. ISIS sells oil that goes through Turkey and reaches European markets.
Don’t Try To Control An Uncontrollable War
Howard J --
In its development since the mid-July “Fortaleza” summits of the BRICS and supporting nations, the new policy of peace through development for all nations has changed the potential of the whole international situation.
The New Silk Road policy of China, which is central to this whole change, is a "Confucian idea of building the future and building a harmonious world order," as Helga Zepp-LaRouche said on returning from a long and groundbreaking visit to China.
The United States must join this effort, and its new international development banks, to save itself from the collapse and ruin of the trans-Atlantic financial system and economies.
The war Barack Obama and his British imperial superiors are now expanding, has a potentially thermonuclear character, as LaRouche stressed again, and this kind of conflagration generated from one, collapsing part of the planet cannot be stopped from reaching others.
Now, on Obama’s specific and insane war mission, LaRouche said that it is absolutely the case that Obama’s new war is, in fact, another regime-change war against Syria, to bring down and kill its president.
The British House of Commons research department has issued a report Monday morning, publicized in a London Telegraph article, saying that bombing Syria now, as Cameron and Obama demand, would be illegal and in violation of international law.
The fact that this institution did this now, LaRouche said, means that Obama is about to bomb Syria. And a lot of members of the Congress are prepared to sit there and watch it.
But once Golem Obama launches it, it’s uncontrollable— uncontrollable by Congress; uncontrollable for the British imperialists, or the Saudi instigators who could destroy themselves; it is not controllable for us. It could mean mass death, including for the United States.
Out of control, LaRouche said, is out of control. Obama has already gone far, far too far. His next step could be the end of civilization. Stop him, get him out of office, or the result will be uncontrollable. You can’t take a defensive posture against such a threat. You have to stop it.
WE have to stop it. Throw Obama out. Bring out the truth of 9/11 and terrorism.
And LaRouche, noted, again, that former President Bill Clinton can understand the role that he has to play in shutting down Obama and replacing him; and that he also is responsible to do that. LaRouche’s movement knows its responsibility in doing this, and has to carry it out now.
Share this message to everyone your know (follow link to share) -- tell them to contact their Congressman with one message: Impeach Obama Now.
Thank you for your continued support,

A real Bronx Cheer for Obama on his ISIS war mobe, like you suck, Obama.... Time to go with the Iran and Assad of Syria option, instead of endless war. http://harlemtshirts.blogspot.com/2014/09/harlem-shake-on-obama.html#.VBdFtvldU1I

Obama has put the US on the road to war insanity in Iraq and Syria. Obama is saying he will continue to train the "Free Syria" forces to fight both Assad regime of Syria and the new Islamic State.
This means that hundreds of thousands of US troops will soon be again in Iraq and this time Syria. That is why Pres. Obama wants no debate on a declaration of war or hostilities. Any substantial debate would reveal that Obama and the British strategy is insane.
The only solution is to impeach Obama, and as US Chief of Staff Martin Dempsey has implied, ally with the real forces of the region, Iraq, Assad's Syria, and Iran, to defeat the IS (Islamic State).
