01) A Mother’s Love (Cancer Hoax Documentary) – Real Stories


“This disturbing film tells the inside story of a mother, Terri Milbrandt, who pretended her daughter had cancer and appealed to her close- knit community for help to pay the medical bills. Seven-year-old Hannah had her head shaved and was given sleeping pills by her mother. It seems that when she awoke she was told she had had chemotherapy. Her teachers arranged counselling for Hannah to prepare her for her death and when she visited Santa she asked to be spared. But there was no cancer and there were no medical bills. Now that close-knit community wants justice and a jury must decide whether they were the victims of a sadistic fraud.

This film talks exclusively to Bob Milbrandt, Hannah’s father, who is standing trial for conspiracy to the crimes of theft, child endangerment and felonious assault, and to Hannah’s grandmother who is also standing trial for theft. Friends, fundraisers and police investigators reveal how it took nine months to discover the story was false.”

01) DEFCON 17: That Awesome Time I Was Sued For Two Billion Dollars

I believe this is from 2009.


“Speaker: Jason Scott Textfiles.com

In a world where scams are now considered as commonplace as functioning websites and cell phones, it’s sometimes too easy to forget the insidiousness and complicated preparation that can go into a well-honed misleading attempt to gain financially from unknowing people. It also helps if you’re this side of crazy. For over a decade, Jason Scott (and a group of others) were plagued by one such artist of misdirection, and he will present an dismaying, tragic, but hilarious recounting of what he learned along the way and what you yourself might find yourself confronted with as you go about your business. The story is true, the two billion dollars was demanded but not awarded, and the case got to court. Come hear a legal yarn with a side order of fried conspiracy theory, and walk away a little wiser.

UK Police Use AI System to Stop Crime Before It Happens…

01) UK Police Use AI System to Stop Crime Before It Happens

“According to a report by New Scientist, the system is called the National Data Analytics Solution (NDAS) and works by using a “combination of AI and statistics” to assess the risk of someone becoming a victim of gun or knife crime, as well as them becoming a victim of modern slavery.

However, the measures that are taken once this system has identified an individual are “a matter of discussion” says Ian Donnelley, the lead on the project.

If this is sounding a little dystopian, your concerns are matched by the Alan Turing Institute. According to New Scientist, a report from the institute said there were “serious ethical issues” about whether such technology is in the public good.”

01) Is Atrazine Turning The Freakin’ Frogs Gay?! – #1


“The story of how atrazine became so hated by the general public and demonised by the media is a bizarre and almost unbelievable one. The story started with the publication of research that showed the compound negatively affected amphibian development, and ended with sexually explicit and harassing emails, withheld research, unrepeatable results, conspiracy to shut up scientists by a large multinational, accusations of a company knowingly selling a carcinogen because they also sell the cure, and American radio show host and conspiracy theorist, Alex Jones, warning us about the gay frogs.”

EQF Public Podium: 02 Aug 26, 2008 [Traveling Back in Time, to My Ten Year Younger Self]…

Does anyone remember the EQF Public Podium?…

…I used to make these, and embed them at the EQF website. They were a way to touch base with my visitors, on a more personal level…a “what’s currently going on at the EQF”, sort of thing.

I stumbled across the second one of these I produced, just recently…and thought it was interesting enough to share…as an archived bit of history.

It’s interesting to listen back, and realize how I’ve changed since then.

Sex offenders delaying McNeil Island release at big cost to taxpayers…

01) Sex offenders delaying McNeil Island release at big cost to taxpayers

“The typical path off the island is to clear a clinical evaluation, get the CEO of the SCC to support the evaluation, get a court hearing, have all sides agree — including the judge — that a resident is ready for unconditional release or a release to a less restrictive alternative, which some call a half-way house.

But there is a population, whose numbers are unknown, that maybe prolonging their stay on the island because of the consequences others have suffered after their release.

“What they do is decline to engage in treatment,” says Sanders. “Or waive the annual review, with is a constitutional requirement if they have been civilly committed.”

Scott is one of those that has declined treatment. But he believes he’s better off staying at the SCC to conduct his legal fight for a new trial. In the meantime, he gets three meals a day, all the medical attention he needs, a small studio apartment and a community who knows the stigma of being labeled a sex offender.

Wright says 40 percent of SCC’s population is not receiving treatment.

One former resident wishes he stayed.

“They are better off staying there,” says the man who did not want to be identified but spent 13 years in treatment at the SCC before his release seven years ago.

“When people found out my history, I was fired, assaulted,” he says. “There is just not the opportunity to live and to work out here in society because of the stigma, it’s terrible.”

He served three years in prison for “communicating with a minor for immoral purposes” before he went to the SCC.

“It’s a scarlet letter, I never thought anything like that would apply to me,” he says. “I read that in high school, jeez and here I got it.”

They’re paying out the nose, to house, feed and care for an aging population…which largely refuses to go back out into the world…because they know there is no future out there for them…

Quite the quandary.

…But, whatever else could have been expected out of this mess?
